The city of Atwater, Calif. has declared itself to be a “sanctuary city” where businesses can operate during the quarantine without being hassled or shut down by government officials.
The Atwater City Council approved a resolution on Friday afternoon that declares the city a sanctuary for business. The resolution states that it “affirms the city’s commitment to fundamental constitutional rights.” It also applies to churches and other non-profit organizations as Atwater is now open for business.

Gov. Gavin Newsom made the announcement last week that the reopening would begin slowly, with only some businesses being allowed to open their doors.
“We are entering into the next phase this week … with modifications, we will allow retail to start operating across the spectrum,” Newsom said during a press conference last week. “This is a very positive sign, and it has happened only for one reason: The data says it can happen.”
“We will allow additional movement through phase two, and that includes the prospect of restaurants with modifications opening, hospitality more broadly opening, again, with modification,” Newsom added.
The city of Atwater is not willing to abide by Newsom’s arbitrary re-opening plans. They are blazing the trail and showing that the governor does not have the discretionary power to turn the economy on or off.
Big League Politics has reported on the intense protests in California against quarantine policies and how Newsom has attempted to stop them:
Following a successful protest on Monday at the State Capitol against the quarantine, the state has now banned similar protests, according to an announcement from the California Highway Patrol (CHP).
“Permits are issued to provide safe environments for demonstrators to express their views,” the CHP said in a statement. “In this case, the permit for the convoy was issued with the understanding that the protest would be conducted in a manner consistent with the state’s public health guidance.”
“That is not what occurred, and CHP will take this experience into account when considering permits for this or any other group,” they added.
On Monday, individuals convened in the downtown area for an “Operation Gridlock” protest, based off of last week’s wildly successful demonstration in Michigan against anti-Trump Governor Gretchen Whitmer, whose lockdown policies are among the most strict in the nation.
California Governor Gavin Newsom might be giving Whitmer some competition, as his state bureaucrats have arbitrarily banned a certain type of rally. It is unknown whether they plan to lock up protesters if they disobey the new edict.
“In the interest of public safety and the health of all Californians during the COVID-19 pandemic, effective immediately the California Highway Patrol will deny any permit requests for events or activities at all state facilities, to include the State Capitol, until public health officials have determined it is safe to gather again,” the CHP said.
Atwater may set a trend of local governments pushing back against their tyrannical state officials to avert economic peril.
SUCKERS: Unions That Endorsed Biden for President are Already Having Serious Buyer’s Remorse
What were they thinking endorsing Biden?
Certain unions that endorsed President-imposed Joe Biden prior to his military installation in the White House on Jan. 20 are already having major buyer’s remorse over the Democrat figurehead’s job killing policies.
One of Biden’s policies that has killed jobs is ending the Keystone XL pipeline. This is expected to kill at least 10,000 union jobs, as President Trump’s “America First” agenda is abruptly reversed.
It is estimated that 42,000 union jobs may be eliminated because of Biden’s order.
Biden cancelled the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline. Just a stroke of the pen for Joe but now 42,000 union jobs are gone, American independence on oil is gone and we are back to depending on foreign nations. Im looking at every Republican “do-gooder” right now.

The unions are not happy with this immediate betrayal from a Biden administration that had claimed on the campaign trail they were going to build the nation back better.
“In revoking this permit, the Biden Administration has chosen to listen to the voices of fringe activists instead of union members and the American consumer on Day 1,” Mark McManus, the president of the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters, said in a statement Thursday.
“Sadly, the Biden Administration has now put thousands of union workers out of work. For the average American family, it means energy costs will go up and communities will no longer see the local investments that come with pipeline construction,” he added.
However, McManus only has himself to blame for these policies with his union backing Biden last year. They sold their country out and now they’re paying the price for their own lack of foresight and patriotism.
We don't sit on the sidelines at the UA. That's why we're endorsing @JoeBiden.
On infrastructure, energy, retirement security, and union rights, Joe will make sure UA members have a seat at the table – and he'll help us win more work with good wages and benefits. pic.twitter.com/Up9VymMrO4

Big League Politics reported on Biden’s hostility to the working man on the campaign trail, as he represented foreign interests and the corporate elite with his candidacy:
Today while campaign in a new auto plant in Michigan Joe Biden was met with some criticism concerning his stance on the Second Amendment from one of the local auto union worker.
The unnamed auto worker told the former Vice President and current delegate leader to be the Democrat nominee, “you are actively trying to end our Second Amendment right”, to which Biden responded “You’re full of sh*t”.
After Biden told the union worker that he was “full of sh*t” a female campaign staff member tried to move the former Vice President along, but was met with “no, shhhh, shhh”.
Biden then went on to point his finger in the face of the auto worker telling him that he doesn’t need to own a “AR-14” and that he will slap the auto worker.
The auto worker’s concern over Biden’s Second Amendment policy may be based on Biden’s announcement on March 4th where he said that anti-gun and failed presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke “will be the one who leads” his gun-control effort.
The union bosses took the Democrat blood money and sold their workers out. Union corruption is a big reason why so many American jobs have been sent off shore over the past several decades.
