The move comes less than an hour after the mayor expanded expanded a curfew, first set for downtown, to the entire city from 8 p.m. Saturday to 5:30 a.m. Sunday. Sheriff Alex Villanueva said he is also seeking help from the National Guard. The decision came as the situation in the Fairfax District deteriorated, with shops, including Nordstrom and the Apple store, vandalized and looted. A small police kiosk in the mall was...

    As president, Biden would replicate California’s repressive AB5 law. “Last year California passed AB5 affording gig workers protections and benefits like a minimum wage and overtime pay,” Joe Biden tweeted on Tuesday. “Now, gig economy giants are trying to gut the law and exempt their workers. It’s unacceptable. I urge Californians to vote no on the initiative this November.” The initiative, qualified for the ballot on May 22, establishes criteria for determining whether rideshare drivers are “employees” or “independent contractors.” AB5 also targets freelance writers and independent contractors in dozens of professions, including health care. Joe Biden was all in...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom sees the state as mere days away from new guidelines to further open up from the coronavirus pandemic, but entertainment industry insiders are feeling broadsided by today’s announcement. “WT [Expletive]?” said one top cable executive to Newsom today announcning he would reveal plans on May 25 that could spur shuttered film and TV production back to work sooner rather than later. “Have they talked to the unions, because I don’t think that’s going to jive with them,” the exec added. “We’ll look at the guidelines when they come out on Monday,” a spokesperson for the WGA...

    Churchgoers across the country are reasserting their fundamental rights of conscience—rights that too many political leaders have forgotten or denied. On Friday, President Trump said churches and houses of worship are “essential” and called on governors nationwide to allow them to open this weekend. If they don’t, Trump said he would “override” governors, citing forthcoming guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.In remarks Thursday, the president criticized some governors who have “deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential” but not churches. “It’s not right. So I’m correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential.”Trump is right,...

    (TNS) -- As California hurries to reopen stores, offices, restaurants and more this week, another rush is on behind-the-scenes. State health officials have launched an unprecedented effort to train thousands of front-line, county-level workers to act as a firewall to stop the coronavirus from roaring back this fall. Gov. Gavin Newsom calls them his “army of disease detectives.” Commonly known in the public health world as communicable-disease “contact tracers,” this ad hoc group will serve as community strike teams in each county, working on tight deadlines to stop individual infections from turning into major outbreaks. When someone tests positive for...

    Dolores Park got a polka-dot makeover on Wednesday morning courtesy of the San Francisco Recreation & Parks Department. To aid social distancing as the summer beckons and the region moves into Stage 2 of Gov. Newsom's statewide reopening plan, white chalk circles were painted across the popular two-block park on the western edge of the city's Mission District. The social-distance guidance circles, around six feet in diameter, are designed to help park-goers know when they are getting a little too cozy amid the coronavirus pandemic, and San Franciscans largely welcomed the addition Wednesday afternoon.

While the HEROES Act pretends to be about coronavirus relief, its focus is on immigration. With over 20 million jobs lost in...
  • 'Illegal Aliens' Jam Phone Lines as California Offers $500 Each in Coronavirus Relief..as it asks fed. taxpayers for help paying for its $54 billion deficit.

    Within minutes after the phone lines opened, people reported they could not get through, by 10 a.m., an hour after it opened, many of the 'phone lines crashed'. The State of California is offering $500 each to illegal aliens as part of a $75 million coronavirus relief program — even as it asks federal taxpayers for help paying for its $54 billion deficit. The governor, Gavin Newsom, announced in mid-April that the state would provide $75 million in cash assistance to the 150,000 who are selected. Philanthropic organizations and private donors pledged an additional $50 million, for another 100,000 immigrants.

    The Emergency Services Act gives California’s governor broad emergency authority. Typically, the state constitution requires policy decisions (what we should do going forward) to be made through the deliberative legislative process.[1] But in a crisis, that authority (what we should do right now) may be consolidated and exercised by one executive.

    California’s governor and San Francisco’s mayor worked together to act early in confronting the COVID threat. For Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio, it was a different story, and 27,000 New Yorkers have died so far. By March 14, London Breed, the mayor of San Francisco, had seen enough. For weeks, she and her health officials had looked at data showing the evolving threat of COVID-19. In response, she’d issued a series of orders limiting the size of public gatherings, each one feeling more arbitrary than the last. She’d been persuaded that her city’s considerable and highly regarded health care...

    Poor Elon Musk. COVID-19 has killed nearly 2,700 Californians so far, but he’s the one who’s truly suffering during the coronavirus pandemic. The Tesla founder and billionaire CEO launched a fresh Twitter tantrum on Saturday. He threatened to move his electric car company out of California as a protest against the state’s coronavirus stay-at-home order. “Frankly, this is the final straw,” wrote Musk on Twitter after health officials in Alameda County declined to let Tesla’s factory re-open this week. “Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately.” Musk also insulted Alameda County’s health officer, calling her...

    "You will respect my authoritah!" scream Democrat mayors and governors who have taken great pleasure in exercising powers they always knew they should have. Except we don't, and a growing number of Americans are tuning out the tiny tyrants. When Governor Gretchen Whitmer or J.B. Pritzker or Jay Inslee or Gavin Newsom opens his mouth or any of the exhausting municipal Marxists like Bill de Blasio and Lori Lightfoot starts barking orders, more and more Americans only hear "womp, womp, womp." That's a good thing. When elected representatives confuse their "public service" with titles of nobility giving them license to...

Gavin Newsom’s argument that California needs to extend its shelter-in-place order.“We’ve unfortunately had six pure, solely coronavirus deaths—six out of 3.3 million people,” he said in an interview this week, according to the San Diego Tribune.The vast majority of COVID-19 “deaths” — 194 of them attributed to the virus — in San Diego County resulted from underlying conditions that made patients more vulnerable to the virus, Desmond said.It doesn’t make sense to...

    Los Angeles County Director of Public Health Dr. Barbara Ferrer made news Tuesday when she told the county’s board of Supervisors that the “Safer at Home” order would almost certainly be extended for three more months when it expired May 15. Outrage ensued, and the Board of Supervisors and Ferrer herself walked back those comments. Turns out that walk-back was just a giant “psych!” because Ferrer announced the new order Wednesday – one with no expiration date. But, give her credit for being literal – it wasn’t a three-month extension. To say that the vast majority of county residents are...
