Permits Are Denied for May 1st ‘Re-Open California’ Protests at State Capitol

‘The order came from the top’

By Katy Grimes, April 24, 2020 4:53 pm

Following the Monday April 20th protest at the California State Capitol demanding the Governor re-open the state and end the lockdown, the Sacramento Bee reported, “demonstrators defied Gov. Gavin Newsom’s orders banning large gatherings.”

Almost immediately, the California Highway Patrol announced it would no longer issue permits for events at the Capitol.

Re-Open California  #EndTheLockdown is the group planning the Friday May 1st protest where protestors will be circling the capitol in cars. “We must tell our politicians to end this nonsense!” the Facebook page says. However, the Capitol permit request was denied, despite that the permit stated that protestors would adhere to social distancing, wear face masks, and that most would be in cars or on the sidewalks surrounding the Capitol.

Sources in the Capitol say the order to the CHP came all the way from the top – the Governor’s office. Other groups also applied for protest permits for May 1st, which I am being told are being denied as well.

“How do you know when you stop being GOVERNED and start being RULED?  When your leaders tell you WHERE you can protest.  And WHAT.  And WHEN,” a commenter posted on the Sacbee.com article.

“We have had the worst scum in the country protest on Capitol grounds and some of them violently including the Black Panthers, Antifa, Earth First, etc.
Now peaceful protestors demanding restoration of their constitutional rights taken away unlawfully by Benito Newsome’s illegal house arrest orders are not allowed,” another posted.

Gross Government Overreach

California’s now infamous homeless population has been allowed to live, defecate and die on the streets while mayors and county supervisors looked the other way, yet residents are supposed to believe we are being ordered to shelter at home for this flu virus for our own good?

While thousands of criminals are being let out of California jails because of a “potential” outbreak of coronavirus, California residents are being ordered to shelter-in-place and stay home.

People have reported to California Globe that they have been pulled over by police asking where they were going, and to show proof of an “essential” job.

Governor Gavin Newsom is trying to provide $75 million to the state’s illegal immigrants while legal citizens can’t even get unemployment or government grants for their businesses.

A dad was arrested for playing ball with his children in an empty field.

A San Diego woman has been notified she’s facing a $1,000 fine or jail time for organizing a downtown San Diego protest that drew hundreds.

Bike trails have been locked down and closed.

State Parks, state beaches, regional parks, skate parks, playgrounds, basketball courts and anything fun out-of-doors has been shut down by overzealous local authoritarian government workers. A lone surfer was arrested earlier in the month. A woman on a jogging trail was cited.

It is apparent the local county officials want people to remain in their neighborhoods, and have issued such orders. Because they can.

This is why there are protests and people disobeying stay-at-home orders.

Gov. Newsom is ignoring the science after saying he would let science dictate his decisions

Stanford University scientists just conducted a coronavirus antibody test, which tested 3,330 people, concluded that the infection is both more common than previously thought and possesses a lower fatality rate than what current data suggest.

University of Southern California and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, also just finished a study which found as many as 442,000 Los Angeles County residents may have already been infected with the coronavirus by early April, a number far higher than the 8,000 cases confirmed at the time. In the first large-scale study of adults tested for COVID-19 antibodies in their blood, initial results show researchers found that 4.1% have the antibodies, an indication that they have already been exposed to the virus. That translates to roughly 221,000 to 442,000 adults who have recovered from an infection, once margin of error is taken into account, according to the researchers conducting the study.

As the Globe said April 6th, Many physicians are now saying the lockdown and social distancing orders are preventing herd immunity, and will drag out the course of the virus. “Stanford biophysicist and Nobel laureate Michael Levitt said this week, ‘The real situation is not as nearly as terrible as they make it out to be,’” Daily Wire reported. “Last week, Levitt emphasized: ‘[Y]ou need to think of corona like a severe flu. It is four to eight times as strong as a common flu, and yet, most people will remain healthy and humanity will survive.’”

The governor has yet to acknowledge the importance of these two studies by two of the most reputable universities in the country. Many more epidemiologists and immunologists have spoken out of news shows about how locking people down is the opposite of what should be happening in order to build herd immunity.

Americans have survived the Hong Kong Flu, the Avian Flu, the Swine Flu, and SARS, as well as Legionnaire’s Disease and Ebola without locking down the entire country. Californians may not survive the statewide lockdown because half of the state will be bankrupt.

More than 3 million Californians have filed for unemployment. Prior to the statewide shutdown, unemployment in the state was as low as 3.9% in February, but was up to 5.3% by March and will be at a record high by the end of April.

By now, most people are saying that this doesn’t add up. And they are protesting. Even without a permit.

  1. For anyone who has ever spent time in Sacramento, you’ve seen the constant, loud, angry protesters in front of the Capital. They are there every day….and they are almost all on the left. This is a fact.
    Selectively choosing to deny permits for law abiding citizens to express their grievances, when the Governor is pushing our State over the fiscal cliff, is almost unimaginable.
    If this isn’t the right time to peacefully protest, when is?

    1. I Don’t Need some Governor, that I would never Vote for, to tell me when I’m Allowed Out of The House!
      Refuse The Orders.

    2. Why can’t we just opened our stores and conduct business like South Dakota they never put in a stay at home order they just put in recommendations about the mass and the 6 feet and people are abiding by it and business is going on as usual and there’s no more deaths there than anywhere else this is a virus and people are going to die some people will die I don’t think every person reported as COVID-19 is COVID-19. Without COVID-19 they would’ve died of something similar.

  2. You’re absolutely right, this is beyond belief.
    I guess Newsom had his fingers crossed behind his back when he took his oath of office and “solemnly swore (or affirmed) to bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States…” And had his hand on an old copy of “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” instead of the Bible while doing it.
    Why doesn’t he just let the protests happen and then ignore the people’s concerns, the way he always does? What is he afraid of?

    1. Newsom Pelosi and the vindmen’s are a crime family. Voter fraud must be rampant in California! I just don’t see anyone in their right mind voting for Pelosi or Maxine Waters or Adam Schitt or maybe nerves are not sure. 100% sure that these people

  3. I can’t understand why we have not just started doing what we have the right to do
    When will someone that has the ear of the right politician, move this to the ears of someone at the white house and see if what AG Barr said about not going too far is true, and then perhaps we can get some assistance?

  4. The 1st Amendment of the BILL OF RIGHTS is our Fk’n permit! It is non negotiable
    We are coming Newsom, because you have already violated our civil rights! You broke the law, and we are going to break your tyranical orders

  5. Circle the capital “On a Monday morning” 7 AM with cars showing American Flags out their windows. Circle, circle circle, until at exactly 7:15 AM…. everyone comes to a halt for 15 minutes…You start back up on the quarter hour and Circle, circle circle, at 8AM you stop again.

  6. “I guess Newsom had his fingers crossed behind his back when he took his oath of office and “solemnly swore (or affirmed) to bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States…” How can you trust a man who is fornicating with his best friends wife? Newsom has very little respect for the law, think gay marriage and San Francisco.

    1. I’m with you, Steve. NO ONE trusts this guy —– maybe especially most of all NOT his supporters.
      Gavin Newsom – “Whether You Like it or Not”
      I won’t say he’s the Guy with the Horns because that would appeal to his ego too much.
      But he’s definitely one of the demons.

  7. Mandatory mask may 1, 2020 for California. First if I am not sick, sneezing, or coughing this is against my first amendment rights and do not agree with this method of CONTROl. Governor Newson funded millions to China after the fact he knew we should not be receiving any products which could further endanger our health.

    1. Lol..most of them hate the idiot..peaceful protests r not working anymore..if you give up any right you have to fight to get then back..everyone who loves needs to show..this is tyranny plan and simple..oh by the way where the hell is the aclu????

  8. Since they (Newsom, CHP, ….) are clearly, undeniably refusing to issue permits to keep peaceful protest legal, they’ve left us no choice but to proceed without permits–at least until they (Pelosi, et al) formally re-write the Constitution which affords us our right to assemble. Let’s face it–that too is coming, UNLESS WE GET OUT THERE AND PROTEST NOW–and PLEASE remember at our upcoming elections which of the current, elected, officials work in support of their own ego and strive to keep us dependent, silent, etc. (assuming they don’t also delay our right to vote–as a means to protect us from ourselves, of course)

  9. I guess u must have to be violent lol..peaceful protests r not working anymore..if you give up any right you have to fight to get then back..everyone who loves needs to show..this is tyranny plan and simple..oh by the way where the hell is the aclu????

  10. Most of the protesters were NOT left, they were conservatives. Stop lying. Since when does the left protest against what the Democrats do. You are a straight LIAR.

    1. Ha! The left protests against whatever governor is in power when their jobs and businesses are destroyed, as they are currently doing in large volume over AB5, and this statewide shutdown. The 4.5 million unemployment claims aren’t partisan.
