Gavin Newsom Goes to Mexico while Extending Covid State of Emergency

Amb. Ric Grenell: One-party state and media snooze as Gov consolidates power

By Richard Grenell, November 24, 2021 6:01 pm

For many Californians, Thanksgiving 2021 will be yet another holiday praying that Governor Gavin Newsom’s everlasting emergency orders come to end. While many other governors have worked to balance individual freedoms against political and health concerns, our governor continues to use Covid 19 to grab more control for himself and his political party. Sadly, the one-party control over the State of California and its people has created lots of sheep who dutifully follow the shepherd.

But exactly how much should we worry? If the state’s Covid State of Emergency orders continue, there is much to be concerned about. Despite leading the nation in vaccine jabs with a whopping 148.2 doses administered per 100 people, Californians have yet to see the full range of their rights returned. Mask mandates and vaccine requirements are still in place. And Newsom is proudly determined to lead California to its second year under a State of Emergency.

His emergency tactics have created the political space for him to label the teaching of mathematics as racist and place our children in masks for what seems like perpetuity. And the robots in his party continue to follow him down the destructive path he is creating.

Newsom’s latest requirement now forces all students ages 5-11 to receive vaccinations in order to attend in-person school, despite data showing transmission from children to be an exceptionally low risk. Gavin Newsom is literally denying science in order to garner more political power. He is taking our freedoms away in the name of health safety when the risk he talks about isn’t based in science or facts.

The state’s data should be an indication of progress and a coming leniency from COVID-19 mandates, but Newsom’s administration has yet to identify any metrics for lifting the mandates. Clearly science is not the only factor driving Gavin’s policy.

Hopefully, viewers can cut through the graininess of this photo and land firmly on the absurdity of this scene from earlier this week in Manhattan Beach. Masked students stood on the boardwalk and performed before a packed audience of unmasked adults. (Photo: Ric Grenell)

At Newsom’s direction, our school boards have also gone so far as to extend their jurisdiction to outdoor activities while we gather to celebrate the coming holidays. I witnessed one such mind-boggling scene last week. In my own community of Manhattan Beach, masked students from the local government school stood on the boardwalk and sang a muffled chorus to a packed audience of confused unmasked adults. Kids in masks while adults are unmasked has become the norm.

The truth is that Newsom’s administration and his political supporters wield nothing more than hypocrisy and incompetence. The policies they support ignore the most pressing issues while seeing fit to create red herrings.

It’s no wonder that Newsom has decided to escape his own draconian mandates in favor of Mexico for a week-long Thanksgiving vacation. And yet this is not the first time Newsom has blatantly disregarded his own rules. He issues Emergency Orders for the people but vacations in Mexico like life is back to normal. If kids in Manhattan Beach must be masked outside while singing Christmas carols, the author of that policy should not be on vacation in a foreign country.

So where is the outrage from Sacramento? There is none. The members of Gavin’s political party and the media that cover them are afraid of Gavin.

Distanced learning, stifled social interaction, anxiety, depression and the undermining of our American values are very real threats to our children’s future, and our School Boards need to either take action or be overtaken by parents who, to use a catchphrase ironically popularized by Democrats, will “follow the science.”

Californians should reflect on whether our elected officials have made our communities better, safer, and more prosperous under the multi-year State of Emergency. The answer should be apparent. One-party control over our state has allowed Emergency orders to become a way of life in California – and this should outrage every single person living here.

  1. From the Mayo Clinic’s article regarding Narcissistic Personality Disorder:
    “Signs and symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder and the severity of symptoms vary. People with the disorder can:

    Have an exaggerated sense of self-importance
    Have a sense of entitlement and require constant, excessive admiration
    Expect to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it
    Exaggerate achievements and talents
    Be preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate
    Believe they are superior and can only associate with equally special people
    Monopolize conversations and belittle or look down on people they perceive as inferior
    Expect special favors and unquestioning compliance with their expectations
    Take advantage of others to get what they want
    Have an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others
    Be envious of others and believe others envy them
    Behave in an arrogant or haughty manner, coming across as conceited, boastful and pretentious
    Insist on having the best of everything — for instance, the best car or office

    At the same time, people with narcissistic personality disorder have trouble handling anything they perceive as criticism, and they can:

    Become impatient or angry when they don’t receive special treatment
    Have significant interpersonal problems and easily feel slighted
    React with rage or contempt and try to belittle the other person to make themselves appear superior
    Have difficulty regulating emotions and behavior
    Experience major problems dealing with stress and adapting to change
    Feel depressed and moody because they fall short of perfection
    Have secret feelings of insecurity, shame, vulnerability and humiliation”

  2. Ric Grenell needs to run for Governor. If he does he needs to debate Newsom on stage about everything that is wrong in California that has been caused by the Democratic Party in this state.

  3. I love it when The Globe runs this picture of Governor Doofus sucking his lower lip in like the simp he is, while (ex) Senator Moorlach looks on with a bemused look that says “You freakin’ DUMBASS…”

  4. I already see several comments here that are highly critical of their governor’s directives. But look, you had your chance to recall him over 2 months ago. You didn’t take it, either because out of loyalty to the Democratic Party or you couldn’t bear to see an activist like Larry Elder become governor, or both.

    I don’t know why it’s so difficult for a lot of folks to change their voting habits. I could change mine in a heartbeat.

      1. Then how come folks like you didn’t take to the streets and demand a recount? Silence isn’t gonna stop voter fraud in CA.

        1. Many did try to protest Democrat voter fraud and the stolen 2020 presidential election at the State Capitol in Sacramento last January and February? In response, Gov. Newsom and the Democrat cabal erected a 6-foot fence around the building and ordered 1,000 National Guard members to secure California’s Capitol building and other state buildings. Sacramento Police Chief Daniel Hahn, who is completely controlled by Democrat Mayor Steinberg and the Democrats on the City Council, sent around 200 officers to the State Capitol every Saturday as Trump supporters tried to contest the 2020 presidential election results. The Californian Republican party was of no help and most insisted that there was no election fraud? As far as the Newsom recall election, the California Republican party made little effort to unseat him and did nothing to address Democrat election fraud? Larry Elder got into the recall election late, he barely campaigned, and then he conceded defeat early on election night?

  5. Why does the CA globe continue to post hit piece after hit piece against our fine governor?
    He beat the recall with over 60 percent of the vote. CA residents overwhelmingly support the governor.
    Time for the globe to get a grip.

    1. Our fine governor? Gavin Newsom is a fine example of a completely out of touch wealthy Democrat with a “do as I say and not as I do” attitude? He sent his unvaccinated kids to an exclusive private school without masks while demanding that public school kids be vaccinated and masked. He locked the citizens of the state down mandating masks and social distancing while he dined in one of the most expensive restaurants in the country while sitting closely with lobbyists and no one was wearing masks. His arrogant hypocrisy is a fine example of how not to govern?

    2. W16521-
      CA is an example of its residents suffering from stockholm syndrome
      Jewish people in Germany in 1930’s believed in Hitler too, like newsom as they were brainwashed by Goebbels….history is repeating and Newsom will eventually roll out Gestapo on unvaxxed — America will be reliving where “star of david” will be pinned to citizens….Freedom is being devoured by the beast of Democrat party.

    3. Isn’t about 60% of Californians on the dole of the benefits provided by a cradle to grave programs of Cal. Heck,EDD gave out a lot of $$$$ during the Governor mandated shut down of all businesses that weren’t considered necesary, plus extra for death row inmates, individuals from many countries because EDD “cares”. Didn’t Newsom promise all californian inhabitants 600$, just before the vote to remove him? Where is the don’t remove me $$$$ anyway!

  6. Newsom is a piece of garbage. The arrogant jerk does not care about the citizens of California. Sadly many citizens in California are so loyal to the Democratic party like cult members they turn a blind eye to the soaring crime, large homeless population, and just overall declining quality of life. Of course the entertainment industry and media, who live outside of reality are a major problem as well. This world needs a revolution, the kind that is not televised. On another note: due to 9 positive cases in Northern Australia. The government there has used the military to take over 30 people who tested negative but might have come into contact with these 9 people from their homes against their will and put them into camps. This is a link for the press conference. This guy looks like a maniac and this situation should be alarming in my opinion.

  7. First thing that must end in CA. UNLIMITED EMERGENCY POWERS. Any additional power given to an elected official beyond what is constitutionally directed, MUST BE VOTED on by our representatives in the legislature. And should be reviewed and re-approved every 30 days. No 2 years+ emergency powers to ANYONE.

  8. Its nice to be the king – enjoy it while you can Newsom.
    This will not end until the people of California vote to change the system.
    First – repeal the existing emergency services act. Replace it with a constitutional amendment prohibiting a “state of emergency” that lasts beyond 30 days without ratification by the legislature.
    Second – repeal the open primaries. People must able to choose from all perspectives on the ballot. The current regime artificially limits the choices for representation to the democrat party.
    Third – repeal permanent vote by mail and replace it with a constitutional amendment that establishes one vote per legal citizen with valid ID. Absentee balloting provided upon properly verified and approved request.
    We have a lot of work to do people. One man must never ever be allowed to hijack state government again.

      1. No you move to a different state and take as many Democrats with as you can. Before this state was run by Democrats we had reliable abundant energy, we did not have water shortages like we have now, we did not have high crime like we have now, we had good roads and highways with no pot holes like we have now, we had a state education system that was the envy of the country, we did not have homeless people living on the sidewalks like we have now, and we had a death penalty in this state where the worst of the worst murderers would be executed but that has ended because your “excellent governor” issued an executive order abolishing it after voters in TWO CONSECUTIVE GENERAL ELECTIONS VOTED TO KEEP IT! Everything the left touches it destroys.

      2. Yes, send in your Newsom campaign donations now so you can be sure those lockdowns and school closures return. It doesn’t matter that the lockdowns didn’t work at all. It’s the principle of it. By the way, they are removing the dmv.ca.gov from the state license plates, and replacing it with “The Lockdown State”.

  9. Want to know why gasoline is double what it was last year? In the macro, it’s DemocRATS in power in D.C. In the micro, it’s DemocRATS in power in CA. Newscum and his legislature have rejected 109 fracking permits so far in 2021. And it’s only the beginning. https://tinyurl.com/y69t8klt

      1. Comrade Raymond
        Your flex ticket of choice awaits to your railcar ride to the gulag or mental facility or work camp.
        Understand this is last free will choice-

  10. From the Wall Street Journal,
    “My research team at Johns Hopkins worked with the nonprofit FAIR Health to analyze approximately 48,000 children under 18 diagnosed with Covid in health-insurance data from April to August 2020. Our report found a mortality rate of zero among children without a pre-existing medical condition such as leukemia.”
    So far, based on CDC data, you have a one in 30,244 chance of dying per COVID injection. The truth always comes out, and when it does, and kids start dropping dead after their vaccinations, Newsom is going to go down as one of the biggest mass murderers in U.S. history. His political career will come to an end.
