Newport Beach Keeps Beaches Open, Despite CA Governor’s Criticism

Published

on

On April 28th, the Newport Beach, CA city council rejected an ordinance that would have closed beaches (by a vote of 5-2). This comes despite criticism from California governor, Gavin Newsom.

Over the weekend, Newport Beach saw tens of thousands of people show up to their beaches. Pictures of the crowded beaches quickly filled headlines and articles.

Some thought it was great to see people getting back to semi-normal. Others were not impressed.

Among those upset about the crowds was governor Gavin Newsom. He said,

This virus does not take off weekends…. This virus doesn’t go home because it’s a beautiful, sunny day along our coast.

This is kind of an ironic statement.

It’s recently been reported that the virus does, in fact, “go home” in “beautiful, sunny” weather. Experts now say that sunlight and heat kill the virus very fast.

This reporting is based on the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center’s (NBACC) newest study, which was leaked by the DHS.

The NBACC study says that “sunlight destroys the virus quickly,” the “virus lives longer at low temperatures and inactivates faster and temperature increases,” and the “virus lives longer at low humidity and inactivates faster at high humidity.”

All three of these attributes would mean it’s very possibly safer outside on a hot and humid beach, than inside in a cool and dry home.

This new information didn’t deter Gavin Newsom from threatening those who would dare go to the beach. He said,

Those images are an example of what not to see…what not to do if we’re going to make the meaningful progress that we’ve made in the last few weeks extend into the next number of weeks. I cannot impress upon you more…that we can’t see the images like we saw, particularly on Saturday in Newport Beach and elsewhere, in the state of California.

The reality is we are just a few weeks away, not months away, from making measurable and meaningful changes to our stay-at-home order. That is a very optimistic point to emphasize. However, that’s driven by data, it’s driven by behavior, and as we change our behavior, we can impact the science the health and the data….

I don’t want to be punitive.  My gosh, someone who has lost their job, last thing they want to do is — walk their dog, they’re with their kids, they’ve got cabin fever, and they just want to take a rest on the beach, and all of a sudden, they get a citation. I don’t want to see that happen.

But if there are people thumbing their nose and abusing it, putting their lives at risk because they’re impacting the lives of others, and ultimately setting back the cause of reopening the economy as quickly as we’d like to, I think we may have to do a little bit more.

Only time will tell if these crowded beaches are going to lead to massive outbreak, and only time will tell if Newsom decides to deliver on his threats or not.

Texas National Guard will be Deploying on Election Day

Democrats are Shaking in Their Boots

Published

On October 26, 2020, the Texas National Guard announced that Governor Abbott is deploying 1,000 members to five of the state’s largest cities to potentially quell unrest on Election Day or the days that follow.

Texas Democrats are uneasy about this announcement, according to a Fox News report.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, the cities where troops will be sent to are Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.

The very fact that troops might be deployed to polling locations has Texas Democrats frightened about the prospect of voter suppression and intimidation. Although the state has been solidly Republican in the last 30 years, Texas is starting to become more competitive. Some experts believe it could flip to the Democrats in 2020 or at the very least, in the near future.

The Texas National Guard commander’s chief of staff informed the San Antonio Express-News that the guard deployment would only be activated to “deter any civil disturbance at sites in various cities within Texas.”

The protection of polling stations “has not been on any mission request or in any conversation with the governor’s office,” Major General James K. “Red” Brown declared. Although troops could be sent to guard buildings , being stationed at polling locations “has not been requested,” Texas Guard spokesman stated.

On the night of October 26, other military officials informed KXAN-TV that there were no plans to send military units to polling locations.

Adjutant General Major General Tracy Norris declared in a statement that the Texas Military Department “was activated to provide additional support to the Department of Public Safety in the summer of 2020.”

“Texas Service Members continue to support DPS in this capacity, guarding historical landmarks such as the Alamo and the State Capitol,” Norris remarked. “To be clear, there has been no request nor any plan to provide any type of support at any polling location in Texas.”

The San Antonio Express-News also confirmed that Norris was requested to set up contingency plans in case of any unrest that emerges.

The initial reports about Abbott’s order received more concerns in progressive bastions such as Austin.

“We’re not hearing any real indications to anticipate any disruptions or intimidation,” said Adler.

Austin City Council member Gregorio Casar blamed Abbott for “fear-mongering.”

2020 elections will be very heated and it’s prudent for Abbott to use military assets to protect Texans from potential insurrectionist behavior from the radical Left.
