Judge Blocks Gavin Newsom’s COVID-19 Tyranny

We are used to judges helping to impose moonbattery in California, as when gay US District Judge Vaugh Walker overruled Prop 8 to take a wrecking ball to marriage. But Gavin Newsom has gotten so carried away that a judge is acting as a brake:

Sutter County Superior Court Judge Sarah Heckman issued a preliminary order for Newsom to stop making executive orders that could contradict state laws after determining one of his orders was “an unconstitutional exercise of legislative power.”

Her order prevents Newsom “from exercising any power under the California Emergency Services Act which amends, alters, or changes existing statutory law or makes new statutory law or legislative policy.”

The pushback against Newsom’s COVID-19 tyranny unsurprisingly was initiated by the handful of Republicans remaining in the erstwhile Golden State.

Republican state Assemblymen James Gallagher and Kevin Kiley challenged Newsom, saying he was overstepping state law with his executive orders.

The problem is not necessarily particular decrees; it is that our system of government requires the legislative branch to make the laws, not the executive. Someone needs to get word of this to other Democrat governors who have exploited the ChiCom virus to set themselves up as regional dictators (Andrew Cuomo, Gretchen Whitmer, Phil Murphy, Kate Brown, JB Pritzker, Janet Mills, et al).

Let’s hope the Supreme Court provides the same pushback if Biden prevails and his handlers try to make good on his threat of a “dark winter.” Unfortunately, if Democrats follow through on another threat, they will pack the court with rubber stamp leftists and turn it into a superlegislature that will render future voting futile.
