Officials for a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in Pasadena, California for those holding vital positions was forced to cancel after its online booking slots were flooded with those who weren’t eligible. The clinic was intended for senior citizens and those working in important fields such as heath-care, child-care, food services and teachers. So who were these ineligible people who thought they were so important that they could cut into the line? It was mostly Hollywood and media.
Under a bill proposed by a Democrat legislator, California businesses would be fined $1,000, if they display toys in separate sections for boys and girls.
People are moving out of California in droves because of government policy about the economy, high taxes, laxity on crime and restrictive COVID lockdowns. This story provides a snapshot on what is taking place in the state. A TV reporter, who was about to do an interview on increasing crime rates in San Francisco, was robbed at gunpoint by thieves who stole his camera.
Bureaucrats are letting Californians know who is really a priority in that state. The Orange County Register reports that health bureaucrats have moved medical Marijuana retail workers up the vaccine list, ahead of even teachers and other high risk groups.
California was the only state in America still banning indoor church services during its lockdown. However, in a recent ruling, the US Supreme Court has just forced Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom to lift the ban. It is because of something called the US Constitution.

California’s Los Angeles County has finally decided it is not above the U.S. Constitution.

And in just 11 months, the number of overdoses recorded in the city had increased by 180 over the total number of overdose recorded in 2019. In comparison, 173 people had died of COVID so far in 2020. The lockdowns are largely blamed for the dramatic increase in overdose deaths.
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.
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. The Register reports: Oracle is shifting its California headquarters to the Lone Star State, saying change of scene will “improve our employees’ quality of life and quality of output.” “Oracle is implementing a more flexible employee work location policy and has changed its Corporate Headquarters from Redwood City, California to …
California’s Democrat politicians have imposed some of the strictest lockdown rules in America. They now forbid people from going for unnecessary walks. Of course, this is being done to stop the spread of COVID-1984. So two how comes?
The lockdown lunacy in California has gone to new extremes with Democrat politicians now telling people to not leave their homes. But people are standing up to the tyranny and hypocrisy of those in charge.
After California’s Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom initiated a new round of draconian lockdown rules, that includes a 10 pm curfew, thousands of people took to the streets protesting the COVID-1984 restrictions and calling for freedom.
Some COVID-1984 lockdowns being implemented around America, particularly in California, are absolutely tyrannical. In some California counties, politicians have actually implemented a curfew where people can’t leave their homes between 10 pm and 5 am.
My personal opinion is that the lockdowns are worse than the virus they are supposed to be fighting. Nevertheless, it annoys me when the politicians, who set the COVID restrictions, think they are above the law that the commoners must obey.
It’s from the ‘what did you think would happen file’. During the ongoing COVID outbreak, California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom decided to release hardened criminals from prison because they might catch COVID.
The Blaze is reporting that more people are starting to flee California, blaming high taxes and government incompetence as their reasons for abandoning the state.
A couple weeks back, Gavin Newsom, the Democrat governor of California, stood in the midst an area ravaged by a recent wild fire and blamed man-made global warming for the problem.

Despite the oppression that is taking place in California as politicians threaten churches and their leaders with fines and even imprisonment, if they hold indoor services during the lock down, some believe the Holy Spirit is beginning to move in the state.
With the number of COVID deaths declining in California, many are wondering why politicians are continuing to lock down the state? Well, according to Real Clear Politics, we may have been given a clue recently when Dr. Barbara Ferrer, the Los Angeles County Public Health Director, discussed the matter with school administrators. Apparently, someone recorded parts of that conference call.
The Democrat controlled state of California has totally embraced unreliable green energy such as windmills and solar panels that only work when the wind is blowing and the sun is shining. And in the process California scrapped reliable gas and nuclear energy.
Nancy Pelosi, the Democrat speaker of the House of Representatives from California, was recently called out for her hypocrisy when she was caught going to a hair Salon in San Francisco effectively breaking several lockdown rules imposed by California’s Democrat Gov Gavin Newsom.
In the Gospels, Jesus warned about people, who on the outside appear to have good intentions, but are actually there to purposefully cause harm. Communist regimes have been infiltrating underground churches for decades in their effort to stop the spread of Christianity. However, it is a bit shocking when we see similar things happening in the US.
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 …

John MacArthur, pastor of Grace Community Church in Los Angeles, California, has just won an important court battle with Los Angeles County that was trying to enforce the state’s lock down orders imposed on churches.
There is a battle brewing in California between Gov. Gavin Newsom and Christian churches. According to the state’s lockdown rules, churches are limited to 25% capacity or 100 people, depending on what is lower. This means churches that can seat three to five thousand people can only have 100 people attending a service at one time. But what is bothering churches is that this 100 person cap is not applied equally to other business, including restaurants. And in acts of civil disobedience, several churches have announced that they will be returning to public services and purposefully violate the cap, with or without the government’s permission. One of those churches is Grace Community Church located in Los Angeles. Pastored by John McArthur, the church’s auditorium can seat 3,000 people, and prior to the Coronavirus was handling two services a day, with both running at full capacity. Even though there are threats that the city would cut off power to the church, in a letter posted on its website, the church said it would move ahead with …
It has even caught the attention of the LA Times that is reporting a revival is breaking out on the beaches of California — Huntington Beach to be exact. It’s partially in response to California’s Gov. Gavin Newsom’s recent hypocritical ruling limiting church services to maximum of 100 and disallowing singing or chanting, while putting no limits on demonstrations, and in fact is encouraging them, where he allows people to shout and chant all they want. So in protest, Sean Feucht, who is a worship leader at Bethel Church, in Redding, California, and others decided to hold a church service at Huntington Beach on Friday, July 10, 2020 in defiance of Gov Newsom’s edict. Let’s call it a “worship protest” and include some signs and everything should be fine. Sean has also started an organization called “Hold the Line“to fight government’s intrusion in the life of the church. Writing for the LA Times, Hillary Davis describes what happened at Huntington Beach: There is a revival taking place on the sand at Huntington Beach. On Friday, …
California Governor Gavin Newsom is fine with protestors shouting and chanting in protests numbering hundreds of people, but he is requesting that churches not to do the same.
With 3,500 California churches previously announcing they would be holding church services on Sunday, May 31, 2020, with or without the state’s approval, it appears Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has blinked.
San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond is reporting of the 200 deaths in his county attributed to the Coronavirus, only six were pure COVID deaths. In other words, the other 194 who died had underlying health issues. In an interview with the San Diego Tribune, Desmond said: “We’ve unfortunately had six pure, solely coronavirus deaths — six out of 3.3 million people. I mean, what number are we trying to get to with those odds? I mean, it’s incredible. We want to be safe, and we can do it, but unfortunately, it’s more about control than getting the economy going again and keeping people safe.” “Any loss of life, for any reason, is worth preventing. Clearly, those with underlying circumstances are the most vulnerable. I believe we can keep people safe and responsibly open our businesses.” Desmond, who has been calling for an end to the lockdown, said the government must focus its attention on protecting those most vulnerable to the virus — the elderly and those with underlying health issues. The Journal of the …
