On Saturday, December 5, 2020 a second California sheriff in one of the state’s largest counties announced his department would not be criminalizing citizens or enforcing Governor Gavin Newsom’s restrictive Christmas stay-at-home order.
Newsom’s dictatorial holiday season lockdown orders have angered business owners and unsettled citizens to the point of rebellion.
“Compliance with health orders is a matter of personal responsibility and not a matter of law enforcement,” said Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes in a statement directed at Newsom’s abuse of power. “The Orange County Sheriff’s Department will remain consistent in our approach.”
“To put the onus on law enforcement to enforce these orders against law-abiding citizens who are already struggling through difficult circumstances, while at the same time criticizing law enforcement and taking away our tools to do our jobs is both contradictory and disingenuous,” Barnes stated.
“Orange County Sheriff’s deputies will not be dispatched to, or respond to, calls for service to enforce compliance with face coverings, social gatherings, or stay-at-home orders only.”
Because of an announced surge in Chinese Virus cases, Newsome’s latest health order went into effect on Saturday afternoon, with a regional stay-at-home order mandated for Southern California.
After the election in November, Newsom ordered a curfew for all California counties in a “purple tier” region. Barnes’ deputies did not enforce that order either.
“At this time, due to the need to have deputies available or emergency calls for service, deputies will not be responding to requests for face-coverings or social gatherings-only enforcement.”
The day before Barnes rejected the order, Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco blasted the Governor:
“The dictatorial attitude toward California residents while dining in luxury, traveling, keeping his business open, and sending his kids to in-person private schools is very telling about his attitude toward California residents, his feelings about the virus, and it is extremely hypocritical.”
Tens of thousands of Californians descended on the state capitol on Sunday, September 6, 2020, for an outdoor, in-person worship service that doubled as an act of defiance against the state’s efforts to restrict Christian and Catholic values and religious assembly.
Following the socialist “Open Society” Globalist playbook used to tear down freedoms in European and African countries, California has been taken over by politicians funded by billionaire George Soros and Chinese interests.
California Democrats Kamala Harris and Newsom have risen to be loyal disciples of Soros.
The California governor banned indoor religious services (along with various types of secular gatherings) in 29 counties representing 80 percent of the state’s population in the name of containing the spread of COVID-19.
Playing the Soros cards, protesters have been free to gather in masses for riots of looting, violence and destruction.
The significant response to Newsom’s actions, downplayed by mainstream media, was the “Let Us Worship” rally. The massive worship service attracted more than 10,000 attendees of various races, creeds and churches for a day of prayer, music, and public speaking.
