CALIFORNIA, November 14, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Earlier this month California Governor Gavin Newsom dined at “one of the world's most exclusive restaurants” with “people from several other households,” Politico reported. For nearly all of 2020, Newsom has presided over one of America’s strictest lockdowns, which currently includes a ban on gatherings of more than three households.
“Gatherings that include more than 3 households are prohibited. This includes everyone present, including hosts and guests. Remember, the smaller the number of people, the safer,” reads the “Guidance for Private Gatherings,” issued by the California Department of Public Health on October 9.
Newsom, a Democrat, with other members of his party around the country — such as Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot — has been discouraging people from celebrating Thanksgiving this year.
Honestly I can’t get over the fact that governors are now telling us how many family members we can have in our own homes and a lot of people are happy to go along with it. It’s insane. I don’t think we even appreciate how insane it is. Words can’t describe it.

We've been worried about the War on Christmas but the Dems just snuck in the side entrance and canceled Thanksgiving instead

PETITION UPDATE (12/14/2020) -
The vaccine roll out is beginning in the United States, and first responders have been tagged as those likely to be among the first to receive a vaccine.
President Trump needs to ensure that this is entirely voluntary.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition, today!
Early reports suggest that the U.S. military could be first on the list of those ordered to take a COVID vaccine.
But, no one should be forced to be vaccinated against his or her will, especially members of the U.S. military!
Military men and women, and their families, already sacrifice enough for the safety of our country. Forcing them to take an untested and unproven vaccine, against their will, would violate the spirit of their contract with America.
This petition says 'No' to treating our servicemen and women like guinea pigs with an unproven and insufficiently-tested vaccine.
Please SIGN this petition to President Trump asking him to declare, as Commander-in-Chief, that members of the armed forces will not be forced to take any COVID vaccine.
So far, big pharmaceutical companies have reported casualties and halted trials for a COVID vaccine on numerous occasions:
- An AstraZeneca COVID trial participant died over the summer.
- On October 12, Eli Lilly stopped a COVID antibody trial because of safety concerns.
- Johnson and Johnson paused their vaccine trials on October 11 because one participant had an "unexplained" illness.
- And, other AstraZeneca trials in the UK were put on hold both in July and September after participants developed a "serious neurological condition that might have been caused by the vaccine."
No one, especially in the U.S. military, should be used as a guinea pig for proving the "effectiveness" of any COVID vaccine.
Apart from these real health concerns, many military men and women object to vaccines made from aborted fetal cell lines and to other unethical testing, and these ethical considerations should also be honored.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which calls on President Trump, as Commander-in-Chief, to issue a declaration protecting the right of servicemen and women to exercise conscientious objection in relation to a mandate for them to take a COVID vaccine.
Just like it was essential for President Trump to nominate a new Supreme Court justice before the election, it is now essential that the President declare any vaccine to be voluntary for the military before January, just in case there is a transition to a new administration.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition to President Trump, today!

The California rules apply to private gatherings which the state defines as “social situations that bring together people from different households at the same time in a single space or place.”
Californians are also banned from socializing for more than two hours.
“While the First Partner and I followed the restaurant’s health protocols and took safety precautions, I should have modeled better behavior and not joined the dinner,” Newsom said. The dinner had been to honor one of his top political advisors. It took place at The French Laundry, where meals range from just over $300 for a single person to $2,500 for two people.
Newsom joins a long list of leftists and liberal politicians who have flouted their own coronavirus rules to riot and/or protest (Black Lives Matter activists), get their hair done (Lightfoot; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi), freely breathe air without cloth obstructing their nose and mouth (CNN’s Chris Cuomo), commit adultery (Neil Ferguson, the U.K. professor whose errant predictions of millions of COVID-19 deaths led to many lockdowns), celebrate perceived political victories (Joe Biden supporters), and mourn the dead (attendees of the funeral of Rep. John Lewis, D-GA).
