Democrats across the country are taking a deep breath.
They know they are on shaky ground in several high profile court fights.
This blue state governor got hit with two lawsuits that will hurt all Democrats.
The lockdowns were put in place with a goal of flattening the curve.
Placing restrictions to make sure the hospital system does not get overwhelmed makes sense.
What does not make sense is continuing restrictions when there is no longer any danger of the hospital system reaching capacity.
If the medical system is not in danger individuals should be able to weigh their risks and make the choices that make sense for them.
All the data points to the fact that the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions end up having trouble with this virus.
There are serious questioning about whether the lockdown is even saving any lives because of cancer screenings that have been missed and increased deaths of despair.
It’s time for the lockdowns to end yet the Democrats are not in any hurry to fix the economy and restore freedom.
They’re trying to fundamentally change America into a socialist state and it’s causing California’s Gov. Newsom legal troubles.
A California church has appealed to the Supreme Court to end the lockdown order when the 9th Circuit ruled against the church’s appeal.
“We’re dealing here with a highly contagious and often fatal disease for which there presently is no known cure,” Judges Barry Silverman and Jacqueline Nguyen wrote according to Politico. “In the words of Justice Robert Jackson, if a ‘court does not temper its doctrinaire logic with a little practical wisdom, it will convert the constitutional Bill of Rights into a suicide pact.”
In other words, the judges decided that their “practical wisdom” is a better legal guide than the Constitution.
President Trump told governors that they should consider churches and other houses of worship essential.
Gov. Newsom also has a personal lawsuit directed against him by the Congressional Committee and California Republican Party after Newsom directed every single registered voter to receive a vote-by-mail ballot.
“Newsom’s order would enable inactive voters, including those who have died or moved, to receive vote-by-mail ballots. On May 8, Newsom issued an executive order that said every registered voter would receive a vote-by-mail ballot; Padilla tweeted, ‘BIG ELECTION NEWS: Every California voter will receive a vote-by-mail ballot for November’s election — and yes, we’ll do our best to maintain safe, in-person voting. This is great for public health, voting rights, and participation in the #2020 election.’” the Daily Wire reported.
Again the Constitution is being trampled on in a shocking power grab.
“This brazen power grab was not authorized by state law and violates both the Elections Clause and Electors Clause of the U.S. Constitution. The Governor’s Order is invalid and must be enjoined.” The GOP complaint said.
Coronavirus has not invalidated the Constitution.
Brave American soldiers died to protect these freedoms and we should not give them up.
