"At least three people were arrested on Saturday during a protest at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. They were cited for violating the stay-at-home order and congregating on a closed beach."

Pelosi is a ghastly creature. She and her ilk – Feinstein, Boxer, Jerry Brown, Gavin Newsom – have effectively destroyed California and they did it on purposeThey strive to import as many illegal migrants as possible; they've created and fostered the homelessness and let it fester. California is now a socialist disaster and the further destruction of the economy is just what they've wanted. 


Gavin Newsom, beach cop taking on all California

Like Mrs. Grundy making the entire class stay after school because of something Reggie and Veronica did, California's Gov. Gavin Newsom is shutting down the beaches, just as the entire population of California goes stir-crazy and the sunniest weekend of the year beckons.
According to CNN, which actually did a good report:
California Gov. Gavin Newsom intends to order the closure of all state beaches and parks starting Friday, according to a copy of a memo provided to CNN by a senior law enforcement official.
"We wanted to give all of our members a heads up about this in order to provide time for you to plan for any situations you might expect as a result, knowing each community has its own dynamics," the memo says.
The closures are expected to be announced Thursday, and state park personnel will help in local efforts to close the sites, the memo said.
Newsom's office did not respond to CNN's request for comment.
Good luck with that one. Notice the reflexive call to a use of force, too -- "any situations you might expect as a result." Unless city officials intend to deploy every police officer to politicing the beaches, it's very unlikely to be the sort of order that's going to work.
Already there are signs the order will never be heeded. The opening of the beaches, about a week ago, was brought on by public pressure to open the public space, and that's just for starters. 
The surfer enclaves of Encinitas and Huntington Beach have already seen fierce protests and calls to end the lockdown. Surfer after surfer had been hunted down by beach cops for paddling out to shore, prompting scenes like this a few days ago, reeking of hypocrisy - notice how the cops aren't socially distancing, yet they're arresting and charging a man for swimming in the open ocean in violation of social distancing. What's wrong with this picture?

The intensity with which the surfers feel about their lifestyle and their willingness to defend it against people who would put a stop to it is very much an indicator that there's no 'consent of the governed' in this Newsom order. Telling surfers they can't practice their lifestyle is like telling gay people they can't be gay - it's not going to work.
Here's another thing: It's viewed as counterproductive. Sunlight is the best disinfectant and the more people can be encouraged to go outdoors instead of stay cooped up in recycling air housing units, (same as a cruise ship), the less there will be of the coronavirus. Viruses tend to go away in hot weather, so ordering everyone off the beach is going to generate more, not fewer, coronavirus cases.
It's also odd stuff for a district that hasn't been all that hard-hit. Southern California in fact has 'flattened the curve' on new cases and as Laura Ingraham notes below, has had only 51 deaths per million in the state, most in the Bay Area. The Newsom order puts the northern California urban straitjacket on spread-out Southern California with fewer cases, given its sunshine and detached single unit homes.
Cheryl Chumley at the Washington Times thinks the order is so out of order the beachgoers ought to just storm the beaches in defiance of the Newsom orders. That might just happen.
And in reality, based on the pictures - are the people really not socially distancing? When you discount for family units, it's actually looks as though they are, I see at least six feet between visitor groups in this crowded beach picture below, something that has escaped Newsom who can only see a lot of people enjoying themselves and wants it stopped.

Some on Twitter have noted a political component, too - Newport Beach, which had the beach scenes that so incensed Newsom, just happens to be one of the few remaining solid red conservative enclaves in SoCal. Was Newsom really incensed about the social distancing, or was he maddest about the area being right-wing with people  who were enjoying themselves?
It's petty tyranny. People still crowd at Walmart and Costco for goods, raising questions as to why they can't spread out on a hot beach. Newsom, though, seems to enjoy his moment in the coronavirus sun and therefore appears intent on extending the misery for misery's sake. Why does he do it? Because he's convinced he's secure in power in his solidblye state. He may be sadly mistaken, because this is not going to work. One only hopes he's opened a big can of whoopass for his party with this stupidity.

California Governor Gavin Newsom plans to issue an order closing all beaches and state parks, effective May 1, according to a report by Fox 11 Los Angeles.
According to KTTV 11 reporter Bill Melugin, Newsom’s office informed California police chiefs Wednesday of the impending change. Melugin received the police bulletin from a source, and then confirmed the bulletin with the Orange County Board of Supervisors.

BREAKING: A source has provided me with this bulletin that will be sent out to all California police chiefs notifying them that tomorrow, Governor Newsom will announce the closure of ALL beaches and state parks effective May 1st in response to recent beach crowds in OC . @FOXLA

Orange County is at the center of the controversy, since it has not closed its beaches, unlike Los Angeles County. Over the last weekend, warm temperatures in Southern California drove many people to seek relief at the coast. Some were reported to have been lax in observing “social distancing” protocols.
Newsom scolded beachgoers in a press conference on Monday, saying that they were undermining the state’s fight against the coronavirus pandemic and endangering plans to reopen the economy.
But San Diego County proceeded with plans to open some beaches on Monday, and the city council of Newport Beach — where many of the crowds had gathered on the weekend — voted to keep beaches there open, albeit with more police to enforce social distancing.
Newsom had not confirmed the order as of Wednesday evening, but exhorted the public to continue to observe social distancing:


CA is flattening the curve because folks are staying home. Practicing physical distancing.

We aren’t out of the woods yet.

We must continue to take this seriously and allow our re-opening to be guided by science and public health.

Recent research suggests that the coronavirus is more difficult to transmit outdoors and does not survive long in sunlight.

Kobach: California Shouldn’t Demand Money from the Rest of Us Only to Give it to Illegal Aliens

Once again, California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) has gone to extraordinary lengths to reward illegal immigration and encourage illegal aliens to stay in the United States. On Wednesday, he announced that—due to the coronavirus pandemic—California will give $500 checks to 150,000 low-income illegal aliens. The cost to taxpayers will be $125 million.
This came a day after Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that illegal aliens will be eligible to receive $1,500 checks that the city will be handing out to its residents.
What Newsom and Garcetti are doing is illegal under federal law. In 1996 Congress passed a major welfare reform act. A crucial section of that law prohibits states and localities from giving public benefits to illegal aliens. And it remains in federal law today at 8 U.S.C. 1621: an illegal alien “is not eligible for any State or local public benefit.” Public benefit includes “any … benefit for which payments or assistance are provided to an individual, household, or family eligibility unit by an agency of a State or local government….”
We stopped hoping that California would follow federal law a long time ago; these latest actions continue a pattern. As I wrote last July, California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) was the first governor to sign a bill making free health care available to illegal aliens. The cost of providing those benefits to illegal aliens was a massive $98 million. That giveaway, too, violates federal law.
But now Newsom is providing millions of dollars in checks to illegal aliens while at the same time expecting the rest of the country to subsidize this spending. California officials are hoping that the federal government will reimburse 75% of the state’s coronavirus expenditures.
And Democrats in Congress are demanding that we federal taxpayers cough up the money. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) want the federal government to provide $150 billion to state and local governments to help absorb their coronavirus spending.
The audacity of handing unlawful checks to illegal aliens while demanding that the rest of us pay for it is breathtaking. Especially when red states have kept their spending under control and have not been handing checks to illegal aliens.
No state that is handing checks to illegal aliens, subsidizing free health care for illegal aliens, and offering sanctuary to illegal aliens – all in violation of federal law – deserves a penny of assistance from the rest of us taxpayers. Not to mention the fact that an unprecedented number of low-income Americans are unemployed. Those U.S. citizens shouldn’t have to compete with illegal aliens for jobs when the economy reopens. But Newsom and other California Democrats are encouraging the illegal aliens to remain.
You would think that California officials would put U.S. citizens first just once, during this time of national crisis. But you’d be wrong.
