California Democrat Who Celebrated Beach Closures Caught Romping on Private Beach

A California Congressman who celebrated California’s beach closures was caught romping on a private beach.



A Congressman who celebrated California’s beach closures was caught romping on a private beach after saying it was “reckless” to allow the lowly citizens on the beach.

Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered the state’s hundreds of miles of beaches closed to the public as a means to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Critics of the closures said that the governor did not have the legal right to close the beaches. And when these criticisms made the news, Democratic Congressman Harley Rouda slammed the attacks on the closures saying it was reckless to open the beaches.

“Keeping Orange County beaches open during a heat wave is reckless,” Rouda tweeted on April 21. “We need leaders who will prioritize public health and make the tough calls to keep our families safe.”

Rouda continued: “Opening beaches to thousands of Southern Californians during a weekend heat-wave without adequate social-distancing protocols was a reckless action that put the families of California’s 48th district in harm’s way.”

But after Rouda was heard attacking the critics of Newsom’s orders, CBS News fond photos of the congressman enjoying one of California’s beaches… but a private one.

CBS noted that Rouda was seen in the photos “spending time at a private beach in Southern California” days after he criticized Californians who thought they should be allowed to go to the beach, too.

Rouda tried to explain it away saying that he and his family “were actively moving and adequately socially distancing on a residential beach, which has explicitly outlined beach access requirements in accordance with Governor Newsom’s beach order.”

So, Rouda was all for shutting down beaches for the lowly people, but he not for himself. Oh, no, like a good, privileged Democrat, he doesn’t think the rules apply to him.

Typical Democrat.

McConnell Smokes Pelosi Over Marijuana-COVID Claim




McConnell Smokes Pelosi Over Marijuana-COVID Claim

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ridiculed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during a Senate floor speech over comments that Nancy Pelosi made last week about a treatment for COVID-19 involving cannabis.

A provision of the Democratic coronavirus relief bill from last week was tied to marijuana and would have allowed legal marijuana businesses the ability to access banking services.

“I don’t agree with you that cannabis is not related to this,” Nancy Pelosi said. “This is a therapy that has proven successful.”

While speaking about how Democrats “are blocking” the Senate’s current proposals for the next round of loans, Mitch McConnell said, “The Democratic leaders want the entirety of their massive far-left wish list, all of it.”

“Speaker Pelosi is still agitating for strange, new special interests carve-outs for the marijuana industry and even claiming they were COVID-related,” McConnell continued. “She said that with respect to this virus, marijuana is, quote, ‘a therapy that is proven successful.’ You can’t make this up. I hope she shared her breakthrough with Dr. Fauci.”

Partial Transcript:

Another day has come and gone in this once in a century national battle for our country. Yesterday more of our neighbors had to say goodbye to loved ones whose lives were claimed by this virus. Yesterday more doctors and more nurses worked long shifts on the front lines fighting to heal strangers and limit a national death toll that now exceeds 150,000. Yesterday more workers brought home pink slips. More main street businesses saw the end of their P.P.P. lifelines fast approaching. Yesterday more laid off Americans filed new claims for unemployment insurance or laid awake wondering about next month’s rent. Yesterday more school officials wondered what to tell parents, students, and teachers about September.

So what happened here in the capitol yesterday, madam president? With the American people fighting all these battles and more, what did the speaker of the house and the Democratic leader do with yet another day of deliberations? Yet again it was the exact same refrain. It never seems to change. We’re feeling optimistic. We spoke very politely to the administration but we’re still nowhere close on substance. It’s now been more than a week since Senate Republicans released a serious proposal for another major rescue package. A trillion dollars for kids, jobs, and health care. But Democrats are blocking it all. It’s like they expect applause for merely keeping a civil tone with the president’s team, never mind they’re still obstructing any action for our country.

Senate Republicans want to revive a federal add-on to unemployment insurance which the Democratic leader would not let us extend last week. We want to send another round of direct checks straight into families’ pockets. We want to supply generous new incentives for rehiring American workers and workplace safety. We want to send historic money to schools for reopening and invest even more in testing and vaccine research. We want legal protections so schools, churches, charities, and businesses can reopen.

The Democrats say they want many of the same things. I certainly believe that many of my Democratic colleagues who serve as ranking members want many of the same things and could easily find common ground with our chairmen if the Democratic leader would let them talk. But instead, we’ve gotten a full week of the speaker of the house and the Democratic leader shutting out all of their own members and refusing to move an inch, an inch off of demands that everyone knows are outlandish. The Democratic leaders want the entirety of their massive far-left wish list, all of it.

Speaker Pelosi is still agitating for strange, new special interests carve-outs for the marijuana industry and even claiming they were COVID related. She said that with respect to this virus, marijuana is, quote, ‘a therapy that is proven successful.’ You can’t make this up. I hope she shared her breakthrough with Dr. Fauci.

CDC Director Reports that Youth Suicides and Drug Overdoses Far Outweighing COVID Deaths in Lockdown

CDC Director Robert Redfield said the COVID lockdowns have caused more suicides and drug overdoses among young people.



CDC Director Robert Redfield now says that the evidence shows that the country has experienced more suicides and drug overdoses among young people during this lockdown foolishness than we have COVID deaths among that group.

Redfield revealed the facts during a Buck Institute webinar he participated in on July 14. As far as he is concerned, the lockdowns are killing many more kids than it is saving.

The director made his points in an effort to underscore that these lockdowns are very bad on America’s young people.

“But there has been another cost that we’ve seen, particularly in high schools,” Redfield said. “We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID. We’re seeing far greater deaths from drug overdose that are above excess that we had as background than we are seeing the deaths from COVID.”

Redfield added that millions of children receive mental health help at schools and being cut off from attending schools is life-threatening to many of these kids.

“Obviously, the socialization is important,” he added. “And obviously, for some kids — I think actually a majority of kids — their learning in a face-to-face school is the most effective method of teaching.”

Redfield went on to say that parents should have no fear whatever of sending kids back to school.

“I think it is important to try to be factual as we go through this,” he explained. “When we look at, right now, the mortality of this particular COVID virus, in the first almost 218,000 people we looked at February to July, there was 52 individuals under the age of 18. And if I recollect, about 35 were actually school age. Some of them were younger than school age. We’re looking critically at those individuals. And, you know, clearly, there’s an increase in comorbidities related to significant medical conditions.”

The reporting on the virus also shows that only one child per million has died from COVID-19.

“We’re looking at about .1 per 100,000,” he said of the mortality rate among youth. “So another way to say that, it’s one in a million. Now, I’m not trying to belittle that, I’m just trying to make sure we look at it proportional. Because if you do the same thing for influenza deaths for school-age children over the last five years, they’re anywhere from five to 10 times greater.”

“The goal is to get all these kids back into education,” he concluded. “I’d like to see the goal being face-to-face education, five days a week, as when we get there, then we’ve got there for those children that don’t have an underlying significant comorbidity that would preclude it. And, hopefully, the states and the federal government will work together to see that the resources to get these schools fully operational come to bear.”

Ohio Outlaws, Then Rescinds Ban on Hydroxychloroquine to Treat COVID-19

On the same day that the State of Ohio banned the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19, they reversed the ban.



On the same day that the State of Ohio banned the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19, the state reversed its ban and decided to leave medical decisions to doctors and patients. Like they should have in the first place.

The state’s Board of Pharmacy had ruled that starting Thursday it would be illegal for the state’s pharmacies to fill prescriptions for hydroxychloroquine. The board had fallen prey to the lie-filled campaign against the 50-year-old drug launched by science-denying liberals whose only goal is anti-Trump politics, not medicine.

But on Thursday morning, the state’s GOP Governor, Mike DeWine, spoke up after being besieged by patients and doctors who demanded to know why a pharmacy board thought it had the power to outlaw the drug they have been safely using for decades.

On Thursday, the Gov. said the decisions about how to treat COVID-19 should be made by patients and their doctors, not some officious placemen in some shadowy state regulatory board.

“The Board of Pharmacy and the State Medical Board of Ohio should revisit the issue, listen to the best medical science, and open the process up for comment and testimony from experts,” DeWine said in a statement.

Despite the obvious truth in DeWine’s statement, the Pharmacy Board only said it was tabling the ban to “study” it more.

“This will allow the Board to reexamine the issue with the assistance of the State Medical Board of Ohio, clinical experts, and other stakeholders to determine appropriate next steps,” the board said in its announcement that it was reversing its ban on the decades-old drug.

There is only ONE reason why hydroxychloroquine would so suddenly be banned. Hate of Donald Trump. Trump has been known to speak favorably about this drug, and to those whose mental capacities have been stunted by Trump Derangement Syndrome, that must make hydroxychloroquine the evil of all evils.

There is no science that says hydroxychloroquine is ineffective or dangerous. Indeed, there is decades of proof that it is part of a useful treatment regime.

Only those who have no actual knowledge and those who hate Trump are against this drug.

Sweden Didn’t Do Virus Lockdowns, Says ‘Very Positive’ Trends Shows Masks are Worthless

Sweden never went into lockdowns and now its medical officers say that the “very positive” trends show mask-wearing is useless.



The Scandinavian country of Sweden never went into lockdowns over the coronavirus, and now its medical officers say that the “very positive” trends show how useless mask-wearing really is.

Sweden is reporting a “very positive” decline in coronavirus cases despite never going onto lockdown, according to The Sun.

State epidemiologist Andres Tegnell reported this week that things are looking very good in the European nation. He also said that the trends prove that there is “no point” to wearing a medical mask.

It isn’t as though Sweden did nothing about the virus, granted.

Per the paper:

People have been asked to work from home where possible, avoid unnecessary travel, and socially distance.

The government also banned gatherings of more than 50 people, banned visits to nursing home, and closed secondary schools and universities.

Primary schools have stayed open, in part to ensure more healthcare workers could continue going to work.

At the peak of the outbreak, the country was seeing 1,800 cases of coronavirus diagnosed per day, but that figure has now fallen into double digits.

There has been speculation that the lighter-touch approach will allow Sweden’s population to develop “herd immunity”, but the extent to which recovered coronavirus patients enjoy immunity remains uncertain.

Tegnell added that, “The curves go down, and the curves over the seriously ill begin to be very close to zero.”

“As a whole, it is very positive,” he said.

As to masks, Tegnall said, “With numbers diminishing very quickly in Sweden, we see no point in wearing a face mask in Sweden, not even on public transport.”

“There are so many unknown factors about how many actually develop antibodies and other types of immune responses after going through the disease, and how many will be required to have had the disease in order to see herd immunity,” Tegnall said.

NBA Nuggets’ Player: Coronavirus ‘Being Used Obviously For A Bigger Agenda’




NBA Nuggets' Player: Coronavirus ‘Being Used Obviously For A Bigger Agenda’

Responding to questions via Snapchat, NBA Nuggets’ player Michael Porter Jr. said that the coronavirus pandemic being used for a “bigger agenda,” including to “control the masses of people.”

Porter, who is expected to be one of the key players for the Nuggets during the NBA’s restarted schedule which begins Thursday, said in a Snapchat Q&A that the virus was being used to “control” the population and that the fear of the virus is “overblown.”


“Bro speak on this coronavirus being [overblown] to scare people into being controlled, [I know] you know all about that,” read one of the questions to Michael Porter Jr..

“That’s facts,” the 22-year-old replied (video above.)

“Personally, I think the coronavirus is being used obviously for a bigger agenda,” he continued. “It’s being used for population control just in terms of being able to control the masses of people.”

“Because this virus, the whole world is being controlled,” Michael Porter Jr. said. “You’re required to wear masks and who knows what will happen when this vaccine comes out. You might have to have the vaccine in order to travel, that’d be crazy. I’ve never been vaccinated in my life, I’ve never had any shots or anything like that.”

“It could get crazy,” he said, “but it’s definitely an agenda behind everything that’s going on right now, and all you can do is sit back and watch what’s going on and not get too emotionally involved.”

Michael Porter Jr. noted that the coronavirus is “serious,” though he believes it’s being “overblown.”

“I mean it is a serious thing. It’s a real, it’s a real thing, but yes it’s being overblown,” he said. Michael Porter Jr. did not provide more details or evidence for his claims about the alleged agenda.

It’s a good test by the given to see just how easily people will give up their freedom. It’s actually pretty horrifying how quickly people will let the government completely control their lives. I’m not a COVID denier but I do believe that it is way overblown. Can’t have too many people participating in the economy and becoming self-reliant out there, in which case they might not vote Democrat.

Twitter Suspends Donald Trump Jr for His Post About Hydroxychloroquine

Twitter suspended Donald Trump, Jr’s, account after he posted a video of a doctor talking about the proper use of hydroxychloroquine.



Twitter suspended Donald Trump, Jr’s, account after he posted a video of a doctor talking about the proper use of hydroxychloroquine as a way to prevent the coronavirus.

Twitter accused Trump, Jr., of “spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19” and locked down his account.

“Twitter suspending Don. Jr. for sharing a viral video of medical professionals discussing their views on Hydroxychloroquine is further proof that Big Tech is intent on killing free expression online and is another instance of them committing election interference and to stifle Republican voices,” Trump, Jr., spokesman Andrew Surabian said in a statement.

The video that Twitter suspended Trump, Jr., over had previously been banned by Facebook, Google-owned YouTube, and other Democrat-operated social media outlets.

Surabian added (per Breitbart News):

While there is indeed much disagreement in the medical community about the efficacy of Hydroxychloroquine in treating coronavirus, there have been studies reported on by “mainstream” outlets like CNN, suggesting that it may in fact be an effective treatment. Those pretending otherwise are lying for political reasons.

it is beyond the pale for Twitter to silence someone for sharing the views of medical professionals who happen to dissent with their anti-Hydroxychloroquine narrative.

Breitbart added:

The video accumulated over 17 million views during the eight hours it was hosted on Facebook, with over 185,000 concurrent viewers.

The event, hosted by the organization America’s Frontline Doctors, a group founded by Dr. Simone Gold, a board-certified physician and attorney, and made up of medical doctors, came together to address what the group calls a “massive disinformation campaign” about the coronavirus. Norman also spoke at the event.

“If Americans continue to let so-called experts and media personalities make their decisions, the great American experiment of a Constitutional Republic with Representative Democracy, will cease,” reads the event’s information page.

Once again we see Twitter using fake claims that they are keeping people “safe” to act as political operatives for the left.

Permanent Damage: COVID Hysteria Stopped People from Getting Regular Medical Treatment

The hysteria over the coronavirus has stopped people with serious illnesses from getting regular treatment.



The hysteria over the coronavirus has stopped people with serious illnesses from getting regular treatment and many are now permanently damaged due to the neglect.

Dr. Scott Barbour, an Atlanta-based orthopedic surgeon, recently told Breitbart News’ Alex Marlow that many people have had their health seriously endangered because they have either been denied treatment or stopped going to doctors and hospitals out of fear of the coronavirus.

Americans have had serious heart conditions, cancers, and other ailments left untreated due to the hysteria over the virus. It has cost many of them their lives and will kill many more before this is all done.

“There are people that are suffering from long-term negative effects of other medical problems because they’re afraid to go to the hospital,” Barbour said on the Breitbart Sirius XM show, “[including], in fact, strokes [and] heart attacks. In my own business, I’ve had one ankle fracture dislocation. [My patient is] going to have a destroyed ankle forever because they didn’t come to the hospital.”

“I have another patient [with] a dislocated finger that waited ’til it was impossible to relocate the finger, and so they’re going to have long-term consequences,” Barbour continued. “So, there are real negative effects by not opening, and I know that there’s a way to open safely. I’ve been doing it for the last seven months and I’m not the only one, so let’s talk about it and let’s figure out a way to get ourselves back to normal.”

Barbour also noted that masks are not really that effective in preventing the virus from spreading.

“Before this outbreak, the consensus literature was exactly what Dr. Fauci said it was originally, where there [did] not appear to be any studies that demonstrate the efficacy of masks in the transmission of what we call influenza-like illnesses, [which are] the types of viruses that are spread in respiratory droplets and cause respiratory illness,” he replied.

“The concept of masks has been studied for a long time, especially in the dental community. They obviously work very closely with people, and a lot of literature has been written,” Barbour added. “There are some studies out there that show that dentists who wear masks and face shields have the same antibodies to the plethora of influenza and respiratory syncytial viruses, which sort of show that the masks were not effective in preventing the disease transmission in these types of professionals.”

The doctor even added that some studies even found that masks made some people MORE likely to contract viruses.

“My attitude towards masks is there’s no real compelling evidence that they do work, and I think that that was sort of relatively accepted before 2020 now suddenly masks are being mandated,” he said.
