Looks like all the Dems’ ill-thought plans during the pandemic are blowing up in their face now.
Not only did the CDC abruptly stop manufacturing COVID vaccine cards, but also multiple other state governors are now realizing that their efforts to subvert the Constitution are not exactly playing out as planned.
This blowback is especially clear in light of California Governor Gavin Newsom, or Governor Gruesome, having a sudden change of heart regarding legal proceedings.
Ironically, these would be his own legal proceedings, namely California Assembly Bill (AB) 2098, which was signed in September 2022.
Under the auspices of this bill, Governor Gruesome forbade all physicians from
“[disseminating] misinformation or disinformation related to COVID-19, including false or misleading information regarding the nature and risks of the virus, its prevention and treatment; and the development, safety, and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines.”
Translation: Doctors were banned from discussing very real risks of the vaccine with their patients, utterly violating their Hippocratic Oath in the process.
Needless to say, a group of doctors, represented by the New Civil Liberties Alliance (NCLA), sued Newsom for violating their right to free speech.
And, since Newsom is so clearly in the wrong, he actually backed down from the NCLA, a very rare occurrence for the preening Hollywood wannabe.
As reported by Fox News, the NCLA made no bones about their case: Newsom’s “California Assembly Bill” directly violated the First Amendment, and, on top of that, likely endangered patient lives in doing so.
“It interfered with the ability of doctors and their patients to freely communicate, serving as a weapon to intimidate and punish doctors who dissented from mainstream views,” the NCLA remarked crisply.
Apparently, Newsom’s taxpayer-funded lawyers advised him to stand down, because that’s exactly what he ultimately ended up doing.
Much to the amusement of Jenin Younes, who serves as counsel at NCLA.
“Governor Newsom and the state legislature saw the writing on the wall after Judge Shubb’s grant of a preliminary injunction in January … Rather than suffer further humiliation in federal court, and implicitly conceding the unconstitutionality of AB 2098, the State of California has taken the unusual step of repealing a law that hasn’t even been in effect for a year,” Younes remarked wryly.
Newsom was also “unusually” recalled during the pandemic, and it’s a real shame that he succeeded in maintaining his governor position, through probably every duplicitous trick in the book.
Greg Dolin, a senior litigator at NCLA, is pleased that Newsom stood down, if only because his lawyers ordered him to, though he finds it quite sad that an alleged governor has to be taken to court over something as fundamental as the First Amendment.
“[It’s] sad that it took a full year and a federal court ruling to reaffirm a 250-year-old fundamental truth – in this country, ‘no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in… matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein,” Dolin remarked wryly.
In general, Newsom’s terrible policies are associated with decimating small businesses and the educational system across California, as more than one individual noted.
“The Covid-19 response included several of the worst things that ever happened in the history of humanity: isolating children (causing learning disabilities), quarantining healthy people (for the first time in history), forcing people out of work and not be able to earn a living, and mandating experimental medication are some examples – not to mention isolating family members and forcing the infected into facilities with the most vulnerable … COVID was a scam of biblical proportions. That wasn’t merely wrong, it was evil,” one of the readers sagely observed.
It most certainly was “evil” what was done in the name of COVID.
Especially when considering the long-term blowback of the façade …
