HERE WE GO AGAIN: Newsom Orders California Back To Essential Lock Down

SACRAMENTO — California Governor Gavin Newsom on Monday issued order that indoor activities and all bar operations be shut down state wide in response to rising Coronavirus numbers.

During a press conference, Newsom declared that all restaurants, wineries, movie theaters, family entertainment venues, zoos, museums and other indoor public places cease operations and that all bars must close entirely.

As part of Newsom’s order, restaurants will be permitted to provide service for outdoor dining and take-out only.

Further, Newsom ordered fitness centers, places of worship, offices for “non-critical sectors,” personal care services, hair salons, barbershops and malls in 30 counties to shut down entirely. The order encompasses 80 percent of the state, including Los Angeles, Orange, Sacramento and San Diego counties.

In his statement, Newsom referenced a California Department of Health’s report which quoted a rise in new cases as the cause of his latest order. Newsom said the state’s seven-day average of new COVID-19 cases increased this week to 8,211, compared to last week’s total of 7,876.

“This continues to be a deadly disease,” said Newsom.


‘NO WAY!’: Trump Warns Mail In Votes Would Equal ‘Rigged Election’

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Tuesday shot down plans by California leaders to use mail ballots for the November election, warning that such an option would lead to a “rigged election.”

“There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed,” the president wrote in a two part tweet. “The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one.”

The president was joined in outrage over the plans by Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel, who also criticized the California governor Gavin Newsom’s plan, calling the effort an “absolute, brazen power grab.”

“What he is talking about is just sending ballots directly to registered voters,” McDaniel said during an appearance on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.”

“In LA [Los Angeles] County alone, there are 1.5 million more registered voters than there are adults in the state because California never cleans up their voter rolls,” McDaniel declared.

On Sunday RNC officials announced they’d filed a lawsuit with the National Republican Congressional Committee and the California Republican Party in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California to try and stop the mailed ballots.

“There will be ballots littering the streets,” McDaniel said of the Trump administration’s efforts to prevent mail in ballots. “If you don’t believe me look at what is happening in Nevada … thousands of ballots are littering mailboxes and garbage cans because Clark County did the exact same thing: sent ballots to inactive voters. Not a single state sends ballots to inactive voters. This is frightening and this is why we are suing the governor.”
