GOP Rep Defends Governor Newsom’s Covid Behavior?

California Governor was caught dining, in violation of his own covid orders, at the exclusive French Laundry in California’s Napa Valley where he hosted a birthday party for a friend.

Many called him a hypocrite and used it as an example of the insanity of the lockdowns.

Even more surprising was when Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) rose on the house floor to defend the governor. However, it turned out to not be the defense everyone expected.

Town Hall reported:

“I rise this morning in defense for Governor Gavin Newsom who recently defied his own idiotic COVID edicts as he partied at one of the few restaurants that’s not yet been forced out of business,” McClintock began. “I defend him, because he was what we once all did in a free society. Make our own decisions over what risks we’re willing to run and what precautions we’re willing to take according to our own circumstances to protect our own health.”

Perhaps, McClintock mused, Newsom has just offered us “deliverance from his own follly.”

McClintock pointed out that if you are under the age of 49 your chance of surviving is 99.92% while if you are over 70 that rate remains over 94.6%. He even pointed out how 40% of people who have it have no idea they do.

“And yet we’ve allowed our officials to ruin our quality of life over it, destroying countless businesses, throwing tens of millions into unemployment, robbing our children of their educations, and shredding our most cherished rights as Americans,” McClintock stated, … “Only a fool would claim the omniscience to make an informed judgment for every person in every circumstance in every community. But sadly this crisis has revealed that fools abound in public office. And that a fool in power can quickly become a petty tyrant.”

Newsom’s partying should be a wakeup call to every American, McClintock urged as he made his point that if politicians do not belive their own rules, why should they be followed.

Would the US be better off if we granted CA independence?
Should we do the same for Puerto Rico?

Unfortunately, if we granted them independence and they became their own country they would then start lobbying for massive amounts of foreign aid. Even more they they get now in federal funding.

Do we know that for sure. Seemed to me as soon as the polls closed on the west coast the show I was watching posted all three states for Biden. They hadn’t even had a chance to count the votes. So if it’s true that Biden lost to Trump in California, there sure are a lot of disenfranchised voters.

Maybe we should all be allowed to live our own lives with our own risks, just like Americans always have. This new virus is just another way for the upper powers that be to control and rule over us. If people want to shelter at home and wear their masks and stay away from other people, then that’s their choice. If they want to go on living like they always have before this crap hit the fan, then that’s also their choice. THAT is what this country is founded on, FREEDOM. That includes freedom of CHOICE. If Newsome can do it, then he doesn’t have the right to tell the rest of us that we CANNOT.!!!! He is a governor, ELECTED by the people. He isn’t a demi god with the right to tell us all what to do. And neither does anyone else. Last time I looked, this was still the Land of the FREE. What does that tell you? !!!!!

Being a Trump supporter does not mean that you are Republican.
All it means is that you are a Trumpist.

When I saw the headline I admit I thought, oh no another RINO. I’ve seen too many lately advocating for President Trump to just give up and concede. But Mr. McClintock nearly brought me to tears with his message. He’s so right. We should all be able to do what Gavin Newsom, Nancy Pelosi and Mayor Lightfoot in Chicago have done. When I saw how Nancy Pelosi went to her hairdressers maskless, while I thought it was hypocritical, I also saw it as a chance to hold them to opening us up so we could do the same. Instead of jumping on the “how dare they” bandwagon, we need to push back and force them to put their money where their mouth is and let us get back to our lives without government intervention. Last I looked we still do have a Constitution. For how long I’m not sure.
