Efforts to recall CA. Gov. Newsom gaining steam

When people get sick of being ruled by tyrants, it usually results in a civil war. In a democracy, we have a chance to kick them out in four or five years. However, some US states provide citizens the opportunity to kick out a politician before the next election if enough people sign a petition triggering a recall election and one has been launched to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

More businesses abandon California

Over the past couple of weeks, there have been more announcements of businesses and people fleeing California. Many cite the state’s socialist policies, anti-business atmosphere, high taxes, declining lifestyles, ridiculous lockdown and environmental regulations as the reasons for their departure. Of course, it becomes a vicious cycle. With California’s eroding tax base combined with the Democrat government’s refusal to cut spending, tax increases are the only solution to make up for lost revenue. So, the cycle continues. This past week, Oracle, a major developer of business software, announced it was moving its headquarters to Texas citing its employees quality of life as one of the reasons. It currently employs 135,000 people and it is not known how many will be directly impacted by the move.

Christian Actress defies CA lockdown & attends church

Claiming that the freedom to worship God is protected under the US Constitution, Christian actress Sam Sorbo attended Godspeak Calvary Chapel in Newbury Park, California this past Sunday (Aug 23, 2020). Sam is the wife of Christian actor Kevin Sorbo. California Gov Gavin Newsom has issued lockdown orders restricting church services to 25% of capacity or a 100-person maximum. In the face of this, several churches, including John MacArthur’s Grace Community Church in Los Angeles, are openly violating these orders stating that while church services are severely restricted, the government is allowing BLM protests to continue even though they are violating Covid health restrictions. LifeSite News recently interviewed several people, including Sam, who attended the Godspeak church service this past Sunday: “It’s my God-given right to be able to worship God freely, and it’s protected by the Constitution,” Sorbo stated. She also explained that it’s frustrating to see the government overstep its bounds and disregard the constitutional, God-given rights of every American citizen. She encouraged Christians to take a stand in the face of government restrictions …
