Gavin Newsom changes mind about ending his COVID emergency powers

June 7, 2021

The thing about people who use a crisis to usurp power which the do not have is that very rarely in history does that person end up giving the power back willingly. It has been evident throughout the last year that some State Governors have really become addicted to their new-found emergency powers (especially because they apparently feel as if they are exempt from the restrictions) so it should come as no surprise that California Governor Gavin Newsom has had second thoughts and will not be giving up his emergency COVID powers after June 15th as expected and promised. Here is more:

During a vaccine lottery event Friday, Democratic California governor Gavin Newsom reneged on his promise to lift the state’s emergency declaration after June 15, allowing him to retain the powers to mandate sweeping COVID restrictions.

“The one thing I am certain of is: There’s uncertainty in the future,” said Newsom. “The emergency remains in effect after June 15.”

When asked for his justification for backtracking on his pledge to Californians, the governor responded, “Because we’re still in a state of emergency. This disease is still in effect. It is not taking the summer off.”

He implied that he may need to use the emergency powers again. “Some modifications may need to be in order on the basis of changing conditions,” he remarked.

That does not sound like somebody who has any intention on ever giving that emergency power back willingly and that explains why there is a recall effort in place which is gaining steam in the State. Of course part of his thinking for keeping the state of emergency in place could be that they can not vote him out of office if he does not allow them to vote…
