Skip to comments.CA Assemblymen Kiley and Gallagher Court Hearing on Gov. Gavin Newsom’s ‘One-Man Rule’
Posted on 10/20/2020 8:28:10 AM PDT by george76
This case is not about one particular law, but the rule of law.
California Assemblymen Kevin Kiley and James Gallagher are suing to stop California Governor Gavin Newsoms one man rule.
Kiley and Gallagher filed their most recent Trial Brief, and Gov. Gavin Newsom filed his. The trial will take place Wednesday, October 21, 2020 in Sutter County.
The Michigan Supreme Court recently struck down the 1945 law that Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been using to keep the state in lockdown since April. And in September, a federal judge in Pennsylvania ruled that Governor Tom Wolfs lockdown orders were unconstitutional, violating both the First and 14th Amendments,
Kiley and Gallagher are asking the court for two things:
(1) a judgment that the Executive Order so issued is null and void;
(2), a court order stopping the Governor from further exercising any legislative powers in violation of the California Constitution.
California is in its eighth month of Gov. Newsom-ordered lockdown under the COVID-19 pandemic, and still with no apparent end in sight.
In addition to sweeping guidance documents that close schools and shutter businesses, Governor Gavin Newsom has issued 55 Executive Orders that span 15 different California Codes and change over 400 state laws,
The crux of their legal argument: the California Emergency Services Act does not authorize Newsoms unconstitutional actions:
Contrary to the Governors claim, the Emergency Services Act does not and could not inaugurate an autocracy in the State of California. Such a wild misapprehension of his own authority is precisely why this case demands a resolution on the merits.
Californias Legislature has been much more useless than the one in Michigan or pretty much anywhere. Its leaders, far from reining in Newsoms abuse of power, have taken most of the year off.

If that fly speck in the lower right is Puerto Rico it is not a state. At least not until.....?
2 brave souls dare push back against the supreme ruler of CA?
Barry wanted 57 states.
Glad to see that this excerpt contained a brief but pithy explanation of what the "One-Man Rule" actually is.
News on is creating his own country within a sovereign country. Blue state governors are all doing the same. They are ignoring, and discounting the Federal government.
This is mutiny and insurrection.
Charges need to be filed against them and their dictatorial laws and mandates to NOT need to be followed by Californians.
No! He thought there were 57 states!
Stupid is as stupid does
Here in Los Angeles County we have a glorified community organizer posing as a public health director shutting everything down indefinitely. “Doctor” Barbara Ferrer (doctorate in social welfare, no medical training whatsoever). She has stated that her lockdown orders have no expiration date. No end in sight to the misery here for 10 million people. No accountability or checks and balances. The Board of Supervisors simply does what she tells them.
