    Police in the Delaware city of Rehoboth Beach issued their first citation for not wearing a mask on the boardwalk against a Lancaster [PA] man. According to a statement from Rehoboth Beach Police Public Information Officer Lt. Jaime Riddle, Delaware has opened beaches and boardwalks as of May 22, but with the regulation that face masks are required to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Despite that, police encountered a “defiant lack of compliance” on Monday from a 56-year-old Lancaster man, Riddle said. Because the encounter was widely circulated on social media, the department received many requests for comment. Riddle explained...

    The mayor of Minneapolis told individuals protesting that their anger is “understandable” and “right" but urged them to make sure they are wearing masks and practicing social distancing during their demonstrations. “The City encourages everyone to exercise caution to stay safe while participating in demonstrations, including wearing masks and physical distancing as much as possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey’s office wrote in a statement addressed to individuals who took to the streets following the death of George Floyd while in police custody. “The City has made hundreds of masks available to protesters this week.”...

    A 2016 study by Cornell University said people who were more afraid of germs were more likely to vote Republican. I’d say the current COVID-19 situation proves the exact opposite. In 2016, the Los Angeles Times wrote:A Cornell University team led by psychologists David Pizarro and Yoel Inbar conducted an online disgust-sensitivity survey of 25,000 Americans during the 2008 U.S. presidential election. Respondents with the highest contagion-anxiety scores were the most likely to indicate that they would vote for Republican nominee Sen. John McCain, the more conservative candidate, over Democrat Barack Obama.However, with the current COVID-19 situation, it’s generally Democrats, not...

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced Wednesday that Angelenos must wear masks any time they leave their home. Anyone except for small children and people with disabilities will have to wear a facial covering when they are near others who don’t live in their home, he said. Previously, masks were only required in businesses and on public transportation. “Bring your masks with you whenever you leave your home. That will help us get more freedoms,” he said. Garcetti also announced that all retail locations in the city can now open for curbside and doorside pickup or delivery. Businesses are not...

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Wednesday that the protests in the state's capital city against state measures meant to limit the spread of the coronavirus make it more likely that the state will have to keep restrictions in place longer. Appearing Monday on ABC's "The View," Whitmer, a Democrat, was asked about the pushback against her administration's coronavirus restrictions. There have been multiple protests in the state's capital city of Lansing in the past few weeks, including one late last month that saw protesters -- some of them armed -- entering the state Capitol, screaming at law enforcement officers and...

    California Democrats on Tuesday proposed giving tenants struggling during the coronavirus pandemic 10 years to pay their rent. The state would purchase unpaid rents and allow renters a decade, starting in 2024, to pay it back, under the proposal by Senate President Pro Tem Toni Atkins, tthe Sacramento Bee reported. Landlords would receive a tax credit dependent on committing to not evict tenants. “This is not a giveaway,” Democratic state Sen. Steven Bradford said, according to The Associated Press. "Our goal is to keep tenants houses and keep landlords out of foreclosure."

    In effect, Wolf has declared war on the people he was elected to govern. Danny DeVito, a candidate in the 45th District of Pennsylvania, has called for the simultaneous impeachment of Governor Wolf and Lieutenant Governor Fetterman for their malicious handling of the COVID-19 crisis. President Trump has also added impetus to the revolt by Tweeting: “The great people of Pennsylvania want their freedom now, and they are fully aware of what that entails. The Democrats are moving slowly, all over the USA, for political purposes. They would wait until November 3rd if it were up to them. Don’t play...

    Los Angeles County residents can expect to remain under some type of “Safer At Home” restrictions well into the summer barring any major change in the fight against the coronavirus, the county’s public health director said Tuesday. Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer made the suggestion during a Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday, saying some form of stay-at-home restrictions will likely remain in place “for the next three months”. “There’s now no way, unless there was a dramatic change in … this virus and the tools that we have at hand to actually fight against this virus, there’s no way that...

    SACRAMENTO, California, May 11, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Hundreds of pastors in California have announced plans to defy Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom’s executive orders deeming religious gatherings nonessential. In an open letter to the Governor, dated May 7, they “declared their intent to begin holding in-person church services beginning on Sunday, May 31, 2020.” In their letter, the pastors lamented “a very long list of ‘secular’ exceptions” from the stay-at-home orders in place in the Golden State. “The exempted persons and facilities include most governmental operations,” they wrote. “The list also includes, among other locations: airports; public transportation facilities (i.e. train...

    The revolt by a dozen or more Pennsylvania counties who are opening up their businesses against the dictatorial edicts of Democrat Governor Tom Wolf has apparently thrown him into a blind rage, which was further exacerbated by a Tweet from President Trump in support of Pennsylvania patriots and a news conference by State Senator and gubernatorial aspirant Doug Mastriano, in which he called for the resignation of the incompetent Health Secretary Rachel Levine. Wolf attacked business owners who reopen from coronavirus shutdowns before they are allowed and the politicians who have encouraged them, calling them “cowardly”, threatening serious consequences to...

    OKLAHOMA CITY - Norman Mayor Breea Clark amended her city’s reopening plan on Friday to allow churches to open immediately. The change came after admonishments from Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter and U.S. Attorney Timothy J. Downing that the plan discriminated against places of worship. Clark defended her plan for churches to open on May 15 as consistent with restrictions on gatherings but said, “I will not spend years feuding with the federal government over one week.” Hunter and Downing told Clark this week that keeping places of worship closed while some businesses were allowed to open violated First Amendment...

    Some areas of New York state will be allowed to reopen Friday, beginning the “next big step in this historic journey,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced Monday. Three upstate regions will be allowed to reopen in a phased manner after meeting metrics laid out by the state government, Cuomo said. But areas of the state that have been hardest hit by COVID-19, including New York City and Long Island, have not yet met those requirements as of Monday. “In my point of view, we’re on the other side of the mountain,” Cuomo said during a news conference. “We have abated...
