California Governor Gavin Newsom Refusing To Give Up COVID Emergency Powers

California’s Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom doesn’t want to give up the emergency powers he attained under the pandemic. What a surprise.

Remember when people on the left claimed that Trump was a fascist? Where are they now?

Could this all be happening because Newsom is terrified of the recall effort that’s been organized against him?

Gov. Gavin Newsom Clings to COVID-19 Emergency Powers

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with a controlling, micromanaging leadership style that few other governors can match. Even as other states have lifted a lot of COVID-19 restrictions for those who have been vaccinated, following the guidance of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the California Democrat is ordering the state to re-open on his terms, not easing up the rules until June 15.

And even though Newsom has declared that the state will be “reopening” that day, he announced Friday that he won’t be declaring an end to the emergency and—the big issue here—won’t be surrendering his emergency powers.

California’s Emergency Services Act grants the governor extremely broad powers when he declares an emergency: “complete authority over all agencies of the state government and the right to exercise within the area designated all police power vested in the state by the Constitution and laws of the State of California.” The act is explicit that when these emergencies are declared, the governor’s orders “shall have the force and effect of law,” albeit with some restrictions—he cannot suspend the Constitution or confiscate legally owned firearms.

“We’re still in a state of emergency,” Newsom said Friday. “This disease has not been extinguished. It’s not vanished. It’s not taking the summer months off.”

Why is Gavin Newsom denying science?

It’s all about power. Newsom doesn’t want to give any up.

The man deserves to be recalled.
