Governor Newsom Created This ‘Surge’ in COVID Cases

No proof, no evidence, and really no danger as the 20,039,659 Californians who tested negative have already proved

By Katy Grimes, November 17, 2020 7:24 am

Gov. Gavin Newsom and California Department of Public Health Secretary Mark Ghaly announced Monday they have halted the entire state from reopening following 250 days of various stages of lockdown since March.

Newsom even claimed the reason is “the fastest increase in cases we have seen yet — faster than what we experienced at the outset of the pandemic or even this summer.”

This is just not true.

What the governor has done is ordered the fastest increase in testing California residents for coronavirus, and the commensurate positive test results.

Gavin Newsom ordered the rapid increase in testing, and even spent more than $100 million to open a lab in Los Angeles to process the tests.

Here are the current COVID-19 numbers:

21,068,895 Californians have been given COVID-19 tests

1,029,235 total Californians have tested positive for COVID-19

20,039,659 total Californians have tested negative for COVID-19

18,263 deaths as a result of COVID-19

What we are seeing is not an increase in deaths – those are on the decline – we only see a rapid rise in tests proving that more than 20 million Californians have tested negative for coronavirus as the graph above shows.

Dr. Mark Ghaly said research has shown businesses have been sources of virus transmission, but he offered no evidence of this outrageous claim, other than to say where friends gather together at restaurants and bars is how COVID-19 is spread.

No proof, no evidence, and really no danger as the 20,039,659 Californians who tested negative have already proved.

Yet Gov. Newsom and Dr. Ghaly announced moving 41 of the state’s 58 counties into the strictest reopening tier solely based on positive virus tests.

“It is not because some restaurants have been open, it’s because that is what viruses do. To limit the spread, do your best to keep up on washing your hands, keeping distanced and wearing a facial covering when you can’t. We can and will overcome this as a free society,” Assemblyman James Gallagher (R-Yuba City) Tweeted.

The silliest, hyperbolic response to Gallagher’s Tweet:

“I’m so embarrassed to hear this kind of remark! You obviously don’t know or see the people suffering. Until you experience what other people are, just keep worrying about restaurants! Cmon respect others and not just yourself!”

Where are the people suffering? The hundreds of thousands of homeless vagrants and drug addicts living on the streets in California cities?

The only people suffering in California are businesses owners whose businesses have been forced into closure, their employees, families stuck at home, kids not attending school, and the elderly who have been isolated since March, terrified of catching the virus.

Gov. Newsom and Dr. Ghaly appear willing to destroy the lives of everyone else in the state in order to “manage” the virus, which is not possible.

Unlike Newsom and Dr. Ghaly, a recent controlled test group of 1,848 Marine recruits was done, who were told to isolate themselves for two weeks at home, then in a supervised military quarantine at the closed Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, Marine Corps Times reported. That included having a single roommate, wearing masks, keeping at least 6 feet apart and doing most training outdoors. They also had daily fever and symptom checks.

The recruits were tested for coronavirus when they arrived for the military quarantine and 7 and 14 days afterward. Sixteen, or about 1 percent, tested positive on arrival and only one had any symptoms. Another 35 — an additional 2 percent — tested positive during the two-week military quarantine and only four had symptoms.

A separate study published Wednesday in the New England journal reports on an outbreak last spring on the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt. Among the crew of 4,779, mostly young people, 1,271 became infected; 77 percent did not show symptoms when diagnosed and 45 percent never developed any.

Dr. Ghaly and Gov. Newsom have made months of unfounded claims. Remember when Newsom said the virus started in nail salons?

Regardless of the controlled environment, the virus still spread, and most people don’t even know they have it. Strict lockdowns do not manage the virus or even make a difference in the spread… except to destroy the middle class, their businesses and their children.

California resident Dave Rubin, author, speaker, pundit, sums up what a lot of Californians are feeling today:

  1. RECALL NEWSOM! We have over 5.5 million people who voted for Trump, we just need half of those to sign the petition to RECALL him. We need a smarter governor!

  2. Gruesome (et al) must be removed. His actions are purposeful. We’ve LONG known there is no “science and data” to justify this hellish social experiment. He is vandalizing and trashing whatever is good and productive that remains in this state. We ask WHY is he doing this but it doesn’t matter WHY anymore; what matters is he is doing it. And if what he is doing is not a criminal act, then what is? Seems to me he should be arrested and prosecuted. Every person in this state is being ruinously affected in one way or another, and for no good reason. At the very least they are being forced to live in a two-dimensional world, again for no good reason. This is WRONG. People are sick and dying from the EFFECTS OF THE LOCKDOWN. People’s livelihoods are being stolen from them and they are being thrown into poverty. People are suffering health effects from the LOCKDOWN, both mental and physical. People are becoming alcoholics and drug users or are relapsing into former addictions that were destroying them and which they surmounted. Virtuous, law-abiding behavior is punished, criminal behavior is rewarded.

    We are being denied our rights as American citizens to go where we please, when we please, to work, to play, to travel, to build and maintain real (not virtual), in-person, face-to-face ties with families, friends, acquaintances, shopkeepers, business contacts, fellow AA members, fellow church-goers, pastors, therapists, gym buddies, personal trainers, and etc. For no good reason.
    Have you had enough yet?

    1. Come on. We know exactly why the democratic Gestapo have crippled private enterprise (except the demagogue favorites pot shops and the French Laundry Toilet and pelousi’s ice cream and hair shop.)
      This is Saul Alinsky, George Soros, Silly Clinton text book subterfuge.
      The religion of the left is fear and ignorance

      We have the identical narcissitic megalomaniac in OR. I hope you few remaining intelligent persons in Cali have a successful Nuisance Recall. We did same with Commie Kate but the statists crushed it.
      Be well, fight the good fight, visit private businesses.

  3. Elon Musk tweeted he had 4 rapid tests in a row, 2 were positive, 2 were negative.
    Did they add those 2 ‘positive’ to the state total?
    Average Number of USA Deaths per Month
    2017 – 234,000
    2018 – 237,000
    2019 – 238,000
    2020 – 236,000
    Can we get on with our lives now?

    1. Sam Axe, that is excellent.
      I have a question: Given that Newsom is issuing these latest whiplash restrictions presumably under his self-given Emergency Powers and the recent court ruling resulting from the Kiley/Gallagher suit enjoined him from mandating anything further under that dubious self-designation, WHY OH WHY is the judge not hauling Gov Newsom himself in front of the court and telling him in no uncertain terms to stop it or else? Isn’t that what she needs to do or she might as well have saved her breath and time and energy in ruling against this nonsense in the first place because it becomes meaningless?

    2. According to the CDC, the estimated total deaths in the US as of Nov 16 in 2020 is 2,487,350. If death continues at the same rate for remainder of the year then 2020 total would end up being 2,842,685, which would be essentially identical to 2019 (difference of 0.1%). https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/index.htm

      The CDC also said 94% of people who died had preexisting conditions listed as a cause. That’s right: only 6% of the “Covid deaths” didn’t have another condition listed as a cause. So, only 6% of the people that the TV says “died from Covid” are actually officially listed as having “died from Covid” without other causes of death. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid_weekly/index.htm?#Comorbidities
      For more insight into the Coronavirus:

  4. My mother is in a nursing home in California. I have not been able to see her except through a window since March for fear that she could get COVID from me. She now has COVID but not because she spent time with her family but because the nursing home facility is allowed to have it’s COVID positive residents returned from the hospital to infect the rest of the residents. Now a majority of the elderly patients have COVID. I would have expected Governor Newsom to impose the greatest restrictions in areas that would protect the most vulnerable population, but he has not. His decisions seem all about power and not about common sense.

    1. I am sorry to hear this. These are the things they did when the wanted the numbers up the first time. These people are murderers. My dad was in the hospital for a pacemaker implant and after they said he had to go to rehab. They sent him to a facility in San Diego that in March had the highest Covid numbers. Luckily he did not get it while he was there but I think this was done on purpose. My friend who died at 37 from a long battle with cancer was put down as Covid back in April. These numbers are false or forced and what is going on is purely criminal.

    2. Is there any chance of taking your mom out of the nursing home? It isn’t a prison, right? I know my friend took her husband out of a hospital and cared for him at home. He started getting lots better because she fed him good healthy food and provided much needed human contact. They locked her out the whole time he was in the hospital. It may be a good investment to pay a caregiver to help you at home if needed. (There is that care.com website) And your mom is home and you have peace of mind.

  5. Thank you very much for more truth and praying for all! Our CA government inhumanely slaughtered almost 2 million very healthy back yard chickens/other birds from April 2018 to June 2020 in S CA only, for a Newcastle Disease, that they never even showed any proof of, or test results (just like they did in 70’s and 2002). Newcastle Disease used to be made into vaccines in 70’s and now a very expensive anti cancer drug for big pharma. CDFA/USDA only targeted the very poor, disabled, Veterans, elderly, and Latinos, that can’t speak English, cus they know we can’t afford to fight back.. CDFA and USDA are so very, very corrupt, and not one government official, including our President would help us. They would come on Sundays, and holidays, usually bringing 5-10 CHP, or other police, to make sure nobody stopped them from shooting, stomping, gassing, etc., in front of hundreds of devastated crying children, cus those birds were their pets, or way of living. Most all had already been tested negative a few times from a vet, but they didn’t care, cus our government has one agenda, to take control, and try and starve us, like they are doing in Syria, and many other countries. Please check out SOB (save our birds) on fb to see proof on live videos, but you’ll need to scroll back to April 2019, cus since they finally stopped in June this yr, people are able to sell/buy birds again, but God only knows for how long. Deuteronomy 31:6 and 33:27, ” Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and He shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.” Romans 12:19, “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.” Isaiah-Malachi, Matthew 24, Luke 21, 2 Thessalonians 1-3, Revelation 6, 18-22, and much more in between about these perilous end times. May God bless and keep you always! Revelation 14:7, ” Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”

  6. Our governor has failed in every way. From all of his taxes spending and ignorance he has crippled our state and businesses that may never recover. He needs to be recalled with 90% of our crooked legislators
