California Gov. Gavin Newsom Takes Latest COVID Restrictions To Dictatorial Levels

Tyranny: No singing in church, no July 4th parties, no wine tasting, no beaches, no theaters or zoos

By Katy Grimes, July 6, 2020 5:40 am

Last week just ahead of weekend Independence Day celebrations, California Gov. Gavin Newsom issues an order declaring there would be no singing or chanting in churches in the state, no 4th of July parties or fireworks, and the state’s beaches closed. He also ordered the closures of restaurants, wineries, tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos, museums, cardrooms and bars in 19 counties – exempting Napa County, where he owns the Plumpjack Winery.

Specifically, his order said:

“In particular, activities such as singing and chanting negate the risk reduction achieved through six feet of physical distancing. Places of worship must therefore discontinue singing and chanting activities and limit indoor attendance to 25% of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, whichever is lower.”

“Even with adherence to physical distancing, convening in a congregational setting of multiple different households to practice a personal faith carries a relatively higher risk for widespread transmission of the COVID-19 virus, and may result in increased rates of infection, hospitalization, and death, especially among more vulnerable populations.”

Newsom also formed “multi-agency strike teams” to crack down on “people who are thumbing their noses” at restrictions, and threatened counties with a loss of state funds if they balk.

These latest orders officially issued by the unelected State Public Health Officer, notably did not include restrictions on rioters and “protesters,” who have destroyed hundreds of millions of dollars in private and public property, looted, torn down historic statues, and ruined businesses in large cities across the country.

California Attorneys Mark Meuser and Harmeet Dhillon, with the Dhillon Law Group and the Center for American Liberty, have filed 15 separate lawsuits against Gov. Newsom alleging he has exceeded his emergency powers.

Under California’s state-of-emergency rules, on March 4, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, Gov. Gavin Newsom was the first governor to declare a state of emergency, elevating him to complete autocratic control. Since then, Governor Newsom has issued 40 Executive Orders, unilaterally changing 200 laws spanning most sections of the California code, California Globe reported.

Meuser has been posting short videos on his youtube channel explaining their lawsuits and how the governor has exceeded his powers.

The most recent video, “Declaration of Independence 2020 style – Why Californians should recall Gavin Newsom,” walks viewers through the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the many violations by Gov. Newsom.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for all Californians to rise up and recall their governor, and to regain among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station the laws of nature and of nature’s God, entitle them a decent respect to the opinions of mankind require them that they should declare the cause which impels them to do this recall,” Meuser opens with.

The first paragraph in the Declaration of Independence says this:

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

“This Fourth of July I decided to read the Declaration of Independence and as I read the long list of abuses by King George, I saw so many similarities with Gavin Newsom,” Meuser said. “I decided to put together this video after making some edits to the original Declaration of Independence that more carefully tracks the abuses by Gavin Newsom.”

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. –That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Governor becomes destructive to this state, it is the Right of the People to recall this governor, and to elect a new governor, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness,” Meuser said.

“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to recall their governor. The history of the present King of California is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over the State. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.”

“He has made our legislative body of no effect, by replacing the Legislature with 47 Executive Orders that had no input by the people’s Legislature.”

“He has forbidden county supervisors from reopening their counties, by depriving them of money from the state and federal treasury.”

“He has granted exemptions ot his executive orders to his political friends, while shutting down any business he has deemed ‘non-essential.'”

“He has arbitrarily shut down our houses of worship before allowing them to reopen with irrational 100 person limits, regardless of how many people can fit in the building, without putting the sam limitations on businesses that he deemed ‘essential.'”

    1. I know. My thoughts exactly. And he needs to start off with the fact that Gavin banned singing in church and how he allows wine tasting only in Napa, where he has his winery. Nobody is going to watch this video! Atty Meuser, thank you for your work and passion, but go back to the drawing board on this video!!

      1. Now that we have heard ALL the law breaking Newsom has done…what’s next and when does he get kicked out? WE THE PEOPLE have been trying for 2 yrs if not longer. County’s have refused to turn in OUR RECALL NEWSOM signs ed petitions!

  1. Saw the video below posted at PressCalifornia.com over the weekend.
    It was definitely a “screw you” to Gruesome and a declaration of independence in its way.
    The same thing happened in Sacramento and San Diego and probably all over the state.
    “Fireworks light up the skies on the Fourth of July all across L.A.”:

  2. The wheels of justice are moving way to slow. There are over a dozen lawsuits filed, meanwhile small businesses are disappearing. We need the recall to be successful. Newsom needs to reminded he is not King of California and we are not his subjects.

    Get 10 friends to sign, then get them to get 10 signatures, and so on….
    The goal is 2 million signatures! We can do this.

    1. Now that we have heard ALL the law breaking Newsom has done…what’s next and when does he get kicked out? WE THE PEOPLE have been trying for 2 yrs if not longer. County’s have refused to turn in OUR RECALL NEWSOM signs ed petitions!

  3. The So Cal skies where polluted on the 5th, but it was worth it to see people stand up for their freedom. Now let’s work on the nonsensical mask “edits”.

  4. These guys are 100% correct. Newsom needs to go. But this is crap.
    But they need to find a better way to communicate. No one knows WTF you are talking about just reading the declaration of Independence with a few words changed. People are pissed that their freedoms are taken away.
    1. Start by losing the stupid mustache. You look like you should be singing barbershop. You discredited yourself in the first frame of video.
    2. Then frame your argument: Newsom has abused power, etc. Then wrap up with the “funny” revision of the Declaration.

  5. Ecc 10:4  If the spirit of the ruler rises against you, Do not leave your post; For conciliation pacifies great offenses. 

  6. Cali’s COVID-19 Mortality for June by Week
    W1 – 2.2%
    W2 – 2.0%
    W3 – 1.6%
    W4 – 1.1%

    What are the criteria for re-opening? How low do we need to go?

  7. I have read each and every one of these “orders.”

    NOWHERE in any of them are they called anything but “guidance,” nor do they by their wording order anyone to do anything, nor cite any authority compelling anyone to FOLLOW their guidance.

    “Guidance” means “advice.” Can anyone explain to me why these published pieces of … advice are called “orders?”

    1. If these are not orders, then how and why is the governor sending his “strike force” all over the state to cite and fine violaters? Under what authority?

  8. @ Katy

    I think you hit the nail on the head when questioning their ‘ authority ‘. What are they going to be allowed to do and how will that be backed up by the courts and law enforcement or will this simply be threats, bullying and intimidation? Or how low will hair gel go to force people to submit and surrender to him?

    Democrats love to use ‘ middle-men ‘ as Thomas Sowell referred to in his book ‘ Black Rednecks White Liberals ‘. In other words they use others to do their dirty work, and obama did this all the time. Even though he was the one who told people to do things he let them take the fall and responsibility for it, and that is what hair gel is doing. First he let and encouraged the citizens to shame and bully others for leaving their homes, going to Church or even two kids riding their bikes down the street. Then it’s the businesses that they threaten and bully with fines, which probably cannot even be enforced, to tell people to wear masks OR ELSE. We know both of those haven’t worked very well and God Bless the American citizen for saying NO, so now he creates a nazi SS strike team to show up and do what? Knowing hair gel and the rest of the rotten democrat party there may be nothing they’re allowed NOT to do.

    This guy reminds me of a bratty child who’ll throw a fit until he gets what he wants. If the strike team isn’t successful how low will he go to punish the California citizens until they surrender, and/ or who will he hire next to do his dirty work. Think about that.

    I heard an interview with Adam Blai once who is a demonologist for The Catholic Church say “ The devil will tell you to do something or threaten to hit you with a stick. Or he’ll simply hit you with a stick until you do what he says “

  9. When will there be a legal challenge to all this nonsense? There are millions of plaintiffs and endless and egregious constitutional violations just begging for lawsuits and legal challenges. Jay Sekulow comes to mind. I wonder what he is doing.
