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.

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.

Midterms 2022

Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election

America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.

On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.

According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate. 

“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.

The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”

In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that  “This is a tough time to be in public service.”

Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back. 

2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state. 

America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
