California's authoritarian governor Gavin Newsom on Thursday issued another stay-at-home order affecting 94% of the state starting on Saturday, Nov. 21.

Gatherings and nonessential work are prohibited between 10 pm and 5 am in 41 out of 58 counties until December 21.

Sheriff's offices in Orange County, El Dorado County, and Sacramento say they will not enforce Newsom's latest lockdown order.

OC Sheriff Don Barnes released a statement Thursday evening saying his office has better things to do than respond to calls about face masks and social gatherings.

Californians are sick and tired of Newsom's orders -- which he and his do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do Democratic colleagues willfully ignore.

Newsom was spotted dining out with 11 of his friends at a Napa County restaurant on Nov. 6, with nary a mask in sight. The group did not follow any of his Covid-19 safety measures, including social distancing and face masks between bites.

The public backlash to the leaked photos of Newsom and his maskless friends was so intense that Newsom issued an apology and claimed he and his guests were dining "outside."

Top pathologist Dr. Roger Hodkinson said the pandemic is "the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public."

"There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians, it's outrageous, this is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public," said Hodkinson during a Zoom call with Alberta government officials this week.

California passed a first-in-the-nation law requiring corporations based in the state to appoint minority or LGBT people to their board of directors.

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the bill into law on Wednesday. The law forces corporations headquartered in California to appoint Black, Hispanic or Asian people to their board of directors.

The law also requires corporations to appoint at least one member of the LGBT community to its board of directors. Companies that fail to comply could face fines of up to $300,000.

“When we talk about racial justice, we talk about empowerment, we talk about power and we need to talk about seats at the table,” Newsom said before signing the bill.

Assembly Bill 979 requires corporations to have at least one director from an under-represented community by the end of 2021.

Corporations with more than four directors, but fewer than nine, would require a minimum two diverse directors.

A corporation with nine or more directors must have at least three minority or LGBT directors by 2022.

Reparations Task Force

Gov. Newsom also signed a law on Wednesday that calls for a nine-member task force to study how reparations could be paid to Black Californians.

The task force will make recommendations for how the reparations could be paid, such as through compensation, property, mortgage loans, or restitutions.

Additionally, Newsom vetoed a bill Wednesday that would have required all high school students in California to take an ethnic studies course in order to graduate.

Kobe Bryant's death has inspired a new bill banning unauthorized photos of the dead by first responders.

The bill was signed into California law by California Governor Gavin Newsom on Monday.

Shortly after the tragedy, members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department began sharing Kobe's death scene photos with others outside the scope of the investigation. One woman revealed a sheriff's deputy texted photos of the deceased at the scene.

The news prompted Bryant's widow, Vanessa, to sue authorities over the invasion of privacy, and on Monday, Governor Newsom signed legislation making such behavior by first responders illegal.

The Kobe Bryant Law forbids them from taking photos "for any purpose other than an official law enforcement purpose or a genuine public interest".

The law will go into effect on January 1, 2021, and is punishable by a maximum fine of $1,000 per violation.

Rapper Wiz Khalifa made it clear he will not wear face masks during the coronavirus pandemic.

"Y'all can have them masks fam," Wiz tweeted on Tuesday, just days after Calif. Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a statewide order requiring all residents to wear face masks in public and indoor public spaces.

A source close to the "Black and Yellow" hitmaker says Wiz is "suspicious" of the California government forcing people to wear face masks. The 32-year-old rapper believes wearing masks should be an individual choice.

99% of those infected with COVID-19 will recover from the disease and less than 1% of people infected with the coronavirus have died.

The COVID-19 death toll is the same if not slightly higher than the influenza virus.

The penalty for ignoring Gov. Newsom's order is a $1,000 fine and possible jail time.

Calif. counties that refuse to comply with the governor's COVID-19 rules will lose up to $1 billion in government funding, according to The Sacramento Bee.

The funding is contingent on counties following the state's stay-at-home order.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday identified nail salons on the West Coast as the source of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States.

"This whole thing started in the state of California, the first community spread, in a nail salon," Newsom said in a press conference on Friday. "I'm very worried about that."

Health officials know that the virus is spread very efficiently by touching the eyes, nose and mouth with hands covered in virus particles. The virus is also spread by coughing or sneezing.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) urged people to wash their hands before touching their faces.

Newsom announced a four-phase plan to reopen the state's economy that begins Friday, May 8. But nail salons in California won't be allowed to reopen until phase 3.

Newsom said the state will allow some business to reopen, including bookstores, warehouses, florists, etc. But that doesn't sit well with nail salons owners.

On nail salon owner was "shocked" by Newsom's comments about her industry. She said she hasn't heard from any health officials saying the outbreak started in nail salons.

"Had they known that this was the situation, absolutely zero information was ever sent to any nail care people in the industry at all," said Michelle Saunders James, owner of Saunders and James Nail Care in Oakland.

Saunders James is concerned that Newsom's remarks will keep people away from nail salons. She employs 12 nail techs in her salon which opened in January and has been closed since mid-March.

She said she's stocking up on disinfectants and personal protection equipment in anticipation of reopening sometime in June.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom is set to close all beaches and state parks in response to crowded beaches in Orange County.

Newsom is expected to make the announcement Thursday, according to NBCLA. The governor lashed out at images of sunbathers crowding Southern California beaches in his news conference on Monday.

The order will go into effect on Friday, May 1, and there is no indication how long the beaches and parks will be closed.

Thousands of sunbathers have gathered at beaches and parks in violation of Newsom's shelter-in-place orders to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

About 80,000 people crowded the sandy shores of Newport Beach from Friday to Sunday, leading to an emergency city council meeting, NBCLA reported.

On Tuesday, the Newport Beach City Council voted against a proposal that would have shut down the city's beaches for the next three weekends.

Some California law enforcement officials have said they will not enforce Newsom's restrictive shelter-in-place order, as they believe it is a violation of Constitutional rights.

Democratic government officials have been overly aggressive in their response to the coronavirus, particularly since the public now believes the pandemic is not as deadly as health officials claimed it would be.

Many say the death tolls have been padded with non-Covid-19-related deaths.

Some state officials have removed hundreds of people from Covid-19 death counts after coroners and physicians complained about irregularities.

Many Americans believe the coronavirus has been politicized by Democrats who are desperate to put mail-in ballots in the hands of every American.

California Governor Gavin Newsom revealed a grant to give $500 cash to 150,000 illegal immigrants living in the state.

Newsom is offering $500 apiece to immigrants living illegally in California who were left out of the $2.2 trillion stimulus package.

Many Americans began receiving $1,200 stimulus checks from the IRS on Wednesday, April 15. But illegal immigrants who do not have Social Security numbers were left out of the stimulus.

Newsom announced a $125 million grant for California's illegals who are impacted financially by the coronavirus.

"We feel a deep sense of gratitude for people that are in fear of deportations that are still addressing essential needs of tens of millions of Californians," said Newsom, who is a Democrat.

He noted that 10% of the state's workforce are illegal immigrants who paid more than $2.5 billion in state and local tax last year.

Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove slammed Newsom for spending money "irresponsibly" on illegals instead of on food banks, and Americans who are in need.

"Instead of meeting these urgent needs, Governor Newsom has chosen to irresponsibly pursue a left-wing path and unilaterally secured $125 million for undocumented immigrants," said Grove.

A radical new California law will allow college student athletes the right to profit from their names and likeness while they are still in school.

California Governor Gavin Newsom signed the Fair Pay for Play Act into law at a Los Angeles barbershop associated with LeBron James's HBO show The Shop: Uninterrupted.

James, 34, celebrated the Fair Pay for Play Act on Twitter.com on Monday. "You the man Governor Gav! Appreciate you as so many many more as well!" he tweeted.

The new law, which takes effect on January 1, 2023, makes it illegal for California colleges to deny student athletes the opportunities to earn hard cash for the use of their names, images and likenesses in video games, advertising, apparel and sports gear.

The new act will benefit student athletes like LaMelo Ball, left, and Liangelo Ball, center, brothers of former Lakers star Lonzo Ball, right.

Student athletes will be allowed to earn money for sponsoring youth camps, just like professional athletes. They can also sign lucrative endorsement contracts with shoe companies, apparel companies, car dealerships, etc.

The law does not require colleges and universities to pay student athletes, but it collides head on with the NCAA's rules.

ATP/WENN.com

California is the only state that allows college student athletes the right to be paid for their own names and likeness.

According to Sports Illustrated, California colleges, the Pac-12 Conference, the Mountain West Conference and the NCAA will all challenge the legality of the new law.

A lot is riding on the line for California schools.

Once the Act goes into effect, California colleges will no longer be permitted to participate in national championships organized or sponsored by the NCAA. And California schools might be kicked out of the NCAA altogether.

But supporters of the law, including James, believe the pros of the new law outweighs the cons.
