The state of California is being forced to close their economy down yet again, as COVID-19 cases reportedly shoot upward.
Governor Gavin Newsom recently announced that all bars, movie theaters, and indoor restaurants can no longer operate in the state while indoor malls, barbershops, hair salons, gyms, churches, and other businesses are shut down in counties determined to be problematic such as Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura.
“This continues to be a deadly disease,” Newsom said on Monday.
“We’ve made this point on multiple occasions and that is why we’re moving back into a modification mode of our original stay-at-home order,” he added.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is threatening a full city-wide shutdown. He has claimed that his city is in danger of approaching the red level of an arbitrary COVID-19 warning system meant to instill color-coded fear into the hearts of his constituents.
“We are on the border of going to red,” Garcetti said during a briefing. “It is up to all of us to make sure that we don’t.”
“Outdoor activities are as we’ve learned in this considered safer, including outdoor dining, which remains open,” Garcetti added. “But if you do an outdoor activity, please do it either by yourself or with other members of your household.”
While the liberal bureaucrats of California are readily ordering people around, they fail to mention that cases are spiking weeks after widespread rioting and protesting from the Black Lives Matter (BLM) racial dominance movement.

Newsom, Garcetti and other public officials pushing the COVID-19 shutdown have refused to denounce protesters for gathering in huge groups flouting social distancing requirements.
“For those of you out there protesting, I want you to know that you matter,” Newsom said last month. “To those who want to express themselves… God bless you. Keep doing it. Your rage is real.”
“My first responsibility is to protect lives before everything else, which is why the Black Lives Matter moment is so important to me,” Garcetti said last month.
Republicans in the California legislature are pushing back against the shutdown from Newsom, which they believe is evidence of his failed response to the crisis.
“Restaurants and churches are not the source of our increase in cases,” four congressmen and state legislators from Northern California wrote in a letter opposing Newsom’s power-grab.
“Small businesses are hanging by a thread and this action puts all the burden of this crisis back upon them. Main Street is struggling for its very life, while Lowe’s and Home Depot are packed with people and having record years. No one can make any sense of these confusing orders,” the letter added.
American life will likely never recover, with the fabric of society torn irreparably by COVID-19 mass hysteria as well as racial riots, due to the weak leadership of spineless Democrats like Newsom and Garcetti.
Dr. Kelli Ward Reelected to a Second Term as Arizona Republican Party Chair
Ward received the full endorsement of President Trump.
Dr. Kelli Ward was re-elected to a second term as the chair of the Arizona Republican Party on Saturday, with precinct committeemen and women narrowly voting to keep Ward in place. The physician and former Arizona State Senator had the benefit of President Donald Trump’s endorsement.
Ward narrowly won reelection 51.5% to 48.5% in a runoff election, defeating challenger Sergio Arellano. Arellano congratulated Ward on her victory and pledged to work on behalf of Arizona Republicans for victory in the 2022 midterm election.
The last two election cycles have proven difficult for Arizona Republicans. The state’s Republican Party, once dominated by establishment operatives loyal to Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, has faced renewed competition in a once-reliably red state with a rapidly changing demographic and population model. Ward took over from Jonathan Lines after the 2018 election.
Republican Martha McSally was appointed to a Senate seat by Governor Doug Ducey, even after losing the Senate 2018 election to Kyrsten Sinema. McSally was again defeated by Mark Kelly in the 2020 election, giving the state two Democratic Senators. Some have speculated that President Donald Trump would’ve secured a narrow victory in Arizona in the 2020 election with a winning Senate candidate, having run ahead of McSally by tens of thousands of votes. However, Republicans have maintained majorities in both chambers of the state legislature.
Ducey, Jeff Flake, and Cindy McCain were censured by Arizona Republican Party precinct captains at the yearly state meeting. The latter two campaigned vociferously for Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 election, largely eschewing any loyalty to the Republican Party in favor of the establishment Democrat politician.
Arizona is now primed to conduct its third US Senate election in as many election cycles, with Republicans receiving a second chance to defeat Mark Kelly, who is finishing since-deceased Senator John McCain’s 2016 term. Republicans such as Andy Biggs of the House Freedom Caucus, Debbie Lesko, and Matt Salmon have been suggested as Senate candidates in an election where the party will have an opportunity to regain its footing in the purple state.
