The reopening of schools, colleges, restaurants and maybe even churches are being held up by CV19 higher rates with so called migrant workers and illegals in the testing.
Lab Coat Tyranny: California is using public health as a rationale to push progressive political goals.
This is a huge cracking of the tyranny code being used to destroy our cities, counties and states.
Lab Coat Tyranny
California is using public health as a rationale to push progressive political goals.
Christopher F. Rufo
October 9, 2020 Covid-19 California Economy, finance, and budgets Public health authorities in California have unveiled a Blueprint for a Safer Economy that requires counties to meet new health equity metrics in order to emerge from the current Covid-19 lockdowns.
Its a broad experiment in social justice. Under the plan, counties must reduce disparities in levels of transmission in low-income, Black, Latino, [and] Pacific Islander communities before they can move forward with reopening.
In effect, local businesses must remain closed until local bureaucrats are satisfied that ill-defined racial quotas have been met.
The underlying assumption of the blueprint is that race-based coronavirus disparities are the result of systemic racism, despite zero evidence that the states coronavirus policies have been discriminatory. The plan ignores potential differences in culture, behavior, and underlying health, resting instead on the premise that racism is the driving force behind every disparate outcome.
The blueprint also subverts the democratic process. Unelected public health officials are restricting essential freedoms, including mobility, worship, and economic activity, without deliberation by the state legislature or the possibility of review or appeal.
Unfortunately, the California blueprint is just part of a broader pattern of state governments using public health as a rationale for seizing power. Throughout the pandemic, blue-state politicians have appealed to science as justification for long-term economic lockdowns, mask mandates, and other emergency measures, regardless of whether these policies have been sanctioned by state legislatures or voters.
Science becomes the highest authority; citizens must obey.
Yet progressive leaders have been willing immediately to jettison science when it conflicts with their pre-existing political priorities. Earlier this summer, leading epidemiologists pilloried conservative lockdown protestorsdeclaring them a threat to public healthbut then endorsed the much larger Black Lives Matter protests following the death of George Floyd in May. In short, they created a policy of science for thee, but not for me.
The disproportionate victims of any attempt to race-code the criteria for reopening in California will be the poor, the marginalized, and the nonwhitethe very people whom the equity policies are supposed to help. If, that is, Los Angeles County fails to reopen because it falls short of its health equity metrics, the Zoom class of intellectuals, public health officials, and progressive politicians will celebrate its own good intentions, even as bartenders, waitresses, taxi drivers, and small shopkeepersmany of them minoritiesfind themselves out of work.
The public should be on alert. If the progressive-scientific establishment can simply dictate policy outside the democratic process by appealing to public health equitya vague concept that can extend to almost every facet of human lifevoters may soon find themselves at the mercy of a new soft totalitarianism, as author Rod Dreher has characterized it.
Citizens with a basic respect for freedom should resist this new encroachment. It degrades science, language, and democracy all at once, and acknowledges no natural limit to its power. Tyranny in a lab coat would still be tyranny.

Donald Trump, whose infection with COVID-19 was confirmed last week, removed his face mask on Monday night upon his arrival to the White House!:
Why President Trump is Our Only Hope-A letter from the son of a Holocaust survivor Frontpagemagazine ^ | Aug 6, 2020 Posted on 8/6/2020, 6:53:32 AM by SJackson Look at this man for one second. Walking back to the White House after a long day.
A 74-year-old man coming back home from work at 2AM while most men his age are retired in their vacation homes. He comes back after a long day that probably started before the sun rose and gets back home exhausted with his tie open and hat in his hand feeling that an accomplished day is finally over. That amazing man is in the age of many grandfathers, great grandfathers or my grandfather when he passed away, but this man just came back home from work, for me, for you.
This man, left his massive gold-covered mansion where he could retire happily and play golf all day long. But this man put his wealth aside and went to work for free, for $1 a year, for me, for you, for us, for AMERICA. While other presidents became rich from the presidency, this man LOST over 2 billion dollars of his wealth during this short 4 years of his life. Yet, he donated 1 million dollars to flood victims in Houston. He put aside his amazing retirement lifestyle for getting ambushed every single day by the media and the Radical Left Democrats that trash this man who works for them until 1 AM for free. He does not do it for money or power, he already had it. He is doing it so their houses will be safe, so their schools will get better, so they will be able to find jobs or start a new business easier, so they will be able to keep few dollars in their pockets at the end of the month while other presidents before him made sure to keep digging in their pockets and empty them for taxes. Look at this picture again, that man is at the age of your fathers, grandfathers or maybe YOU. Where is your respect? Honor? Appreciation? Are you THAT BLIND? THAT BLIND to not see a thing this man is doing for you and for your family? After all his work for minority groups in America you keep calling him a racist?
I am the son of an Auschwitz Survivor and someone who lost 99% of my family to the camps and ovens of Nazi Germany. And I am no fool. DONALD TRUMP IS NO RACIST OR ANTI-SEMITE. Are you THAT BLIND to not see how much this country developed in the last 4 years? President Donald J. Trump, I want to thank you with all my heart. I am so sorry for the blind hatred you have been made to endure. You are a good and generous man. I KNOW THIS. What I do not know and think about often is what kind of people is it who can be so hateful in their hearts to spew such hate and evilness, not just at you but at your family too? Or people mocking and making jokes about you because you are not a professional politician groomed in speech-making and straight-faced lying. Or attacking your wife and young son.
People who believe their hatred is their own. But they can not articulate why they hate. What kind of people are these? WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE ARE THESE? They are the kind of people who do not realize that they have been manipulated and brainwashed by such a deep-rooted EVIL MOTIVATED BY EVIL MEDIA. The American people are in a bad place right now.... in their hearts and souls. God help us.... Trump is not the problem. President TRUMP is our only hope.
If people want to stay home, let them! NO ONE wants to force them to go out!
Easy - if you as a small business owner do not feel safe - Do not open!
Easy - If you as an individual do not feel safe with things opening up - Do not go out.! 93% of those who show up for testing, just imagine or think they have the virus .
Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, told Fox News:If you see a wounded veteran missing a limb or seriously disfigured the odds are pretty good they were wounded by an IED that was designed and deployed under the direction of Soleimani.
In April 2019, the State Department announced that Iran was responsible for killing 608 U.S. troops during the Iraq War, with Soleimani responsible for 17 percent of all deaths of U.S. personnel in Iraq between 2003 and 2011. A source, who served in Iraq and saw the photos told Fox News that Soleimani died in much the same manner as the Americans he killed.
Our worthless CIA under Bush II and Obama never took this POS/Soleimani out and let him continue to kill and maim our service men.
The survivors and the family members of those killed or wounded should sue Bush II, Obama and Brennan for failing to do their job to kill the enemy and protect our soldiers/marines on the ground in Iraq!.
Instead, they spied on Candidate Trump, President Elect Trump and even President Trump and allowed this POS/Soleimani, to kill 17% of our US Personnel in Iraq from 2003 to 2011!
Attention Whistle Blowers! If you think you were forced/involved in any unlawful activity as a result of a directive from Mr. Obama, Biden, any Clinton, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, Mueller or someone doing their bidding, now is the time to report it. 800-572-2249 Office of Special Counsel (OSC) is an independent federal agency that interprets, investigates, and prosecutes cases of prohibited personnel practices brought by government employees.
President Trumps actual words not the misquotes of those against America.

Folks Barr is not going to prosecute anyone associated with this coup attempt. I think you are right - Which proves that President Trump, regardless of who his AG is, has far bigger fish to fry than political puppets like Obama, Clinton, or any other Leftist stooges.
Locking them up (even if he could) would not right the ship - the only way to do that is change the culture: there is no longer a ;voice of reason in the media or academia that can serve as a watchdog over the government.
If you look at who the President has been going after all along, its not particular politicians - no matter how crooked, they are just figureheads -they can and will be replaced. He is going after the self appointed opinion leaders.
He is constantly provoking them, flushing them out, trolling them. He picks the rational side of each issue knowing they will have to virtue signal their opposition in knee jerk fashion.
By doing this, he forces them to embrace the irrational side of every issue - and as a result they are publicly making complete asses out of themselves on a daily basis. I do not know how well its working, but come 2020, by the time the Presidential debates roll around, I suspect it will become evident that President Trump has engineered a deep shift in public opinion - and that the Left will have finally lost its monopoly over the media and academia - they will no longer get to say what is truth and what is lies. When the media, Hollywood and academia are purged of the Marxist liars that now dominate our institutions, and a new breed of thinkers, authors, and leaders take their place - only then will the republic be safe from Leftist tyranny.
I do not think locking up a few crooked politicians would work as long as the lefts propaganda ministry remains intact - they just become martyrs and get pardoned four years later.;Folks Barr is not going to prosecute anyone associated with this coup attempt. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3762613/posts?page=42#42.
Be nice to 80 year old guys
Our Government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the Government becomes a law-breaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that in the administration of the criminal law the end justifies the means to declare that the Government may commit crimes in order to secure the conviction of a private criminal would bring terrible retribution!!
Louis Brandeis (1856-1941)
The elite liberals do not want the illegals to go to Blue Cities, Counties and States.
They want them to go live in and vote in the red cities, counties and states in the 2020 elections.
Then, they can control the $inate, House, the Electoral Vote and more governors after 2020.
Then more red states would be financially like Illinois, NY and other Blue States by 2020, basically bankrupt.
President Trumps threat to send illegals to sanctuary cities and states would be a nightmare for them.
Unprocessed rape kits in California while Kamala was the state AG!
If she had done her job as our state AG, there would not be hundreds if not thousands of Rape Kits not processed.
Maybe some females in California and the nation can bring this scandal forward after Kamala conveniently forgot about them.
