I will not be abiding by this nonsense. Unconstitutional, and stupid. I’ll do whatever I want and Newsome can’t tell me otherwise

Interesting the category of this item is "fiction".

In my view, the Governor should resign. By not following his own rules for COVID (French Laundry debacle), he's lost the moral authority to ask others to do the same. This will cost lives.

I have to agree that this is not only stupid it is another case of Newsom exceeding his authority. I'm sure this will be challenged in court and that Newsom will lose. The virus is not more prevalent between 10 pm and 5 am. There are already restrictions in place against large gatherings and restrictions on operating hours for businesses like restaurants and bars so what is the purpose? Personally I have no intention of following this curfew. If I have a reason to be out after 10 I will be.

> another case of Newsom exceeding his authority

Based on what legal precedent? Why hasn't the GOP sued?

Willy,

Why do you think there hasn't been a lawsuit filed? There has. In addition, several California Law enforcement agencies have come out and publicly states they will not be enforcing the curfew. One would assume there are many more that do not intend to state the publicly but will not be enforcing the curfew. A curfew by the way that does not apply to "essential workers", a term that has been expanded to include employees at Tesla and entertainment industry workers. How are they essential?

Wow - the San Bernadino supes! Be still my heart! What? Sidney Powell's free these days - can't talk her into using her vast experience as part of the Trump 'elite, strike force' legal team?

Maybe she can find the link between Newsom and Hugo Chavez, whom she thinks is still mysteriously alive!

"Ms Powell also said that some voting software was created at the direction of late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and that votes for Mr Trump had probably been switched in favour of President-elect Joe Biden."

Any other 'elite, strike force' legal team on the case to prove your point? ('cuz you are wrong about "Newsom exceeding his authority")
