Gavin Newsom Clings to Covid Emergency Powers

It couldn’t last forever. Largely thanks to the previous administration’s Operation Warp Speed, the ChiCom pandemic is winding down. But some Democrats can’t bear to let it go — like Gavin Newsom:

One year and three months have passed since Governor Gavin Newsom announced California’s COVID-19 state of emergency.

He still won’t lift it, despite the crisis being effectively over, even though the state is officially reopening on June 15, when he promised he would relinquish his emergency powers.

Newsom’s tyranny affects even those Americans fortunate enough not to live under his rule. The whole country gets to help pay the bills he runs up:

The state of emergency gives Newsom the broad authority to suspend and impose new rules in California, and also allows the federal government to cover the state’s COVID-19-related costs. …

During this emergency, Newsom has issued 58 executive orders to change or suspend hundreds of laws.

Other states have either dropped their state of emergency or at least plan to by the end of summer. But California is the leftist vanguard. Now that Democrats know how much people will put up with, a state of emergency will inevitably be established on a permanent basis. Next time it will be in the name of a crisis that doesn’t exist, so they won’t have to worry about it ending. Global warming and white supremacy are leading candidates.
