CA Gov. Newsom Hides Key Covid Data Used to Justify Endless Lockdowns, ‘Too Complex and Would Confuse the Public’

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) is hiding key Covid data used to justify his endless lockdowns.

Newsom said the data is just too complex and would confuse and potentially mislead the public.

Gavin Newsom first locked down California in March of 2020 and he refuses to let go of his newfound power.

Small businesses have been destroyed and churches that have remained opened have been targeted by Newsom’s goons.

In December Newsom introduced regional stay-at-home orders which is triggered when ICU capacity falls below 15%.

However, Newsom is actually hiding key Covid information which is driving his policy decisions despite previously promising transparency.

Newsom this week opened up a Sacramento-area region even though its ICU capacity is below 9% — Other regions with the same ICU capacity however are still closed.

“What happened to the 15%? What was that all about?” asked Dr. George Rutherford, an epidemiologist and infectious-diseases control expert at University of California, San Francisco. “I was surprised. I assume they know something I don’t know.”

KTVU reported:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has from the start said his coronavirus policy decisions would be driven by data shared with the public to provide maximum transparency.

But with the state starting to emerge from its worst surge, his administration won’t disclose key information that will help determine when his latest stay-at-home order is lifted.

State health officials said they rely on a very complex set of measurements that would confuse and potentially mislead the public if they were made public.

“The state is wielding extraordinary power these days — power to close businesses, to directly impact people’s livelihoods and even lives — and so it owes it to Californians to disclose how and why it makes those decisions,” said Snyder, whose California public interest organization fights for greater government openness.

“Secrecy,” he said, “is exactly the wrong approach here and will only breed further mistrust, confusion and contempt for the crucial role of government in bringing us out of this crisis.”

California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Children Return to In-Classroom Private School

Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) said Friday that his four children have returned to in-person learning at a private school in Sacramento County, while the California Teachers Association (CTA) has resisted public school openings.

Newsom’s children’s school is operating under a “phased-in” approach to in-classroom learning that uses a hybrid model of alternating virtual with in-person classes, a Politico report noted. Next month, the school is expected to return to full-time in-classroom education.

As Politico observed, many public schools across the state remain closed under pandemic policies, including mostly all those in Sacramento County, where the governor resides.

“They’re phasing back into school and we are phasing out of our very challenging distance learning that we’ve been doing, so many parents are doing up and down the state,” Newsom said when asked about his own children’s education.

Newsom has encouraged schools to open, leaving the decision up to local school districts. However, CTA, the state’s main teachers’ union, has refused to allow its members to return to their classrooms, citing safety concerns.

In September, CTA, an affiliate of the National Education Association, said school districts were “rushing” to return to in-classroom learning and demanded uniform Chinese coronavirus testing and tracing. The union called upon the governor to issue state mandates for all government schools.

“Your leadership and action are needed to ensure that robust testing, tracing and isolation support, along with other prevention measures, are in place before students, educators and support staff return to in-person learning,” CTA President E. Toby Boyd wrote in a letter to Newsom and other state leaders. “California must fund, coordinate, and operationalize a true public health response to support public education in our state.”

The governor cited $5.3 billion in state and federal funding to assist with schools’ reopening efforts, plus two months of personal protective equipment (PPE) available to districts from the state.

Newsom gave waivers to private schools that wanted to reopen, a move that drew criticism from CTA.

The governor said the reasons for returning to in-classroom learning are the need for social-emotional learning to continue and to help parents.

“We absolutely believe that the social-emotional learning that occurs in the classroom is the best place for our kids, certainly the best place for their parents as well,” Newsom said. “And, so, it is absolutely incumbent to do everything in our power to provide support to our districts so that they can safely reopen, emphasis on safely reopen.”

Judge Rules CA Gov Overstepped His Authority with Covid Order, Issues Permanent Injunction Restraining Newsom From Further Issuing Unconstitutional Orders

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) for the past 8 months has imposed some of the most abusive and authoritarian Covid restrictions via executive orders.

Newsom is a tyrant who has completely bypassed the state legislature and unilaterally locked down California with 57 executive orders!

California residents have been suffering under Newsom’s iron fist and draconian lockdowns since March.

California state lawmaker Kevin Kiley sued Gavin Newsom and a Northern California county judge rebuked Newsom in a 9-page ruling on Monday.

Sutter County Superior Court Judge Sarah Heckman ruled one of the Covid executive orders issued by Newsom related to mail-in ballots overstepped his authority and encroached on the state legislature.

The judge barred Newsom “from exercising any power under the California Emergency Services Act which amends, alters, or changes existing statutory law or makes new statutory law or legislative policy.”

KUSI reported:

 A Northern California county judge on Monday preliminarily ordered Gov. Gavin Newsom to stop issuing directives related to the coronavirus that might interfere with state law.

[Judge] Heckman’s decision will become final in 10 days unless Newsom’s attorneys can raise new challenges. Newsom did not immediately comment or say if he will appeal.

The case centers on a single Newsom executive order in June requiring election officials to establish hundreds of locations statewide where voters can cast ballots in the November election. But lawmakers subsequently approved the same requirement, and the judge’s decision will have no effect on Tuesday’s election.

She acted in a lawsuit brought by Republican Assemblymen James Gallagher and Kevin Kiley, who said Newsom, a Democrat, was single-handedly overriding state laws in the name of keeping Californians safe.

“This is a victory for separation of powers,” the lawmakers said in a joint statement. Newsom “has continued to create and change state law without public input and without the deliberative process provided by the Legislature.”

Heckman wrote in a nine-page decision that the California Emergency Services Act “does not permit the Governor to amend statutes or make new statutes. The Governor does not have the power or authority to assume the Legislature’s role of creating legislative policy and enactments.”

Assemblyman Kevin Kiley explained today’s ruling against Newsom in an interview with KUSI News.

EXCLUSIVE: A list of “key domestic contacts” for a joint venture involving Jim and Hunter Biden and now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co. included former Vice President Joe Biden‘s current running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, among other prominent Democrats, Fox News has learned.

An email exclusively obtained by Fox News, with the subject line “Phase one domestic contacts/ projects” and dated May 15, 2017, Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, shared a list of “key domestic contacts for phase one target projects.”

The email is unrelated to the laptop or hard drive purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son.

The list, included Kamala Harris, D-Calif.; Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.; Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D); New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D); former Virginia Gov. Terry McCauliffe (D); then Governor of Florida Sen. Rick Scott (R); California Gov.

Calif. Gov. Newsom Signs Bill to Amend Sex Offender Law Reducing Penalties For Sex with ‘Willing’ Same-Sex Minors

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) on Friday night signed a bill that would allow judges to decide whether to list a man as a sex offender for having oral or anal sex with a same-sex minor.

The bill lowers the penalties for adults who have sex with ‘willing’ same-sex minors. A Judge could decide if the adult has to register as sex offender if the offender is within 10 years of age of the victim.

The bill does not apply to minors under the age of 14.

SB 145 was introduced by state senator Scott Wiener and passed the California legislature last week.

Since 1944, judges decided whether a man had to register as a sex offender if he had sex with a female minor 14 years of age or older when the age difference is not more than 10 years, so Wiener argued that since the law didn’t apply to young boys, the LBGTQ community was being ‘discriminated against.’

The law ends discrimination “by treating LGBTQ young people the exact same way that straight young people have been treated since 1944,” Wiener said in a statement last week, adding: “Today, California took yet another step toward an equitable society.”

In other words, Scott Wiener is arguing that a 14-year-old boy can actually consent to sex with a 24-year-old grown man (predator).

The bill passed the Democrat-led assembly, however it was even too much for some Democrat state lawmakers.

25 Assembly members voted against the bill. It passed with 41 votes, with 13 lawmakers not voting and then it cleared the senate with a 23-10 vote (7 senators did not vote).

“I cannot in my mind as a mother understand how sex between a 24-year-old and a 14-year-old could ever be consensual, how it could ever not be a registrable offense,” Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, said before the bill’s passage last week. “We should never give up on this idea that children should be in no way subject to a predator.”

Senator Ted Cruz blasted California Democrats.

“Today’s California Democrats believe we need more adults having sex with children, and when they do, they shouldn’t register as sex offenders,” Ted Cruz said. “This is extreme and very harmful to kids.”
