Photos Circulate Online Of Gov. Gavin Newsom At Fancy Restaurant Not Complying With Health Guidelines

Published

Hypocrisy has always been the name of the game when it comes to radical liberals, and this is a truth that has been put on full display ever since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

The latest example of this comes from new reports from FOX 11 News out of Los Angeles that say they have exclusive photos of Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom “allegedly eating at the French Laundry restaurant” in Napa Valley earlier in the month that show him failing to comply with the mandatory health guidelines put out by the California Department of Public Health.

The images were allegedly provided by a woman who is unidentified, who says she was at the fancy restaurant on the evening of November 6 when Newsom showed up ignoring all COVID-19 protocols.

“It was a very large group of people, shoulder to shoulder, something he’s always telling us not to do,” the woman told FOX during a telephone interview. “It was a bit annoying, for sure.”

The governor has faced harsh criticism after a report published by the San Francisco Chronicle last week revealed he had attended the dinner party that “brought together at least 12 people to celebrate the 50th birthday of Jason Kinney,” described as a lobbyist and “longtime friend and political adviser to Newsom.” State guidelines at the time prohibited social gatherings that included more than three households and have since become even more restrictive. “Representatives for Kinney and Newsom declined to specify how many households the diners represented, but did not dispute that it was more than three,” the report said.

When Newsom apologized for making “a bad mistake” on Monday, he described the dinner as taking place at an “outdoor restaurant” in a county that, on Nov. 6, imposed “relatively loose” restrictions.

The report from the FOX local news station shows that this isn’t the case. The photographs indicate that the dinner was held mostly indoors with the sliding glass doors opened to allow air circulation.

Another anonymous source says the sliding doors were shut at one point due to noise complaints about the group.

A spokesman for Mr. Kinney released a statement noting the guests and the establishment itself followed all of the state and county public health guidance. According to the statement, the group required outdoor seating, and where they were seated is considered outdoor seating.

Newsom’s office then told FOX 11 to look at the previous apology issued by the governor on the matter.

“As soon as I sat down at the outside table, I realized it was a larger group than I had anticipated,” Newsom stated. “Instead of sitting down, I should have stood up and walked back to my car and drove back to my house.”

“The spirit of what I’m preaching all of the time was contradicted, and I’ve got to own that,” the governor added. “I need to preach and practice, not just preach and not practice. And I’ve done my best to do that. We’re all human; we all fall short sometimes.”

Folks, if this coronavirus nonsense didn’t already feel like a farce, this sort of behavior by our leaders should push things over the edge.

Tone-Deaf Portland Runs Tourism Ad After Riot Police Quit En Masse

If you’re looking for chaos, have we got the vacation spot for you!

For months on end, a never-ending series of protests-turned-riots have plagued the city of Portland, Oregon. Night after night the northwestern locale rages, as protesters march in the street, commit arson, clash with cops, and generally relish in their new role as liberal nuisances to the citizens of the city. Things have gotten so bad, in fact, that a large contingent of the city’s riot police coordinated a mass resignation from that portion of the force. That makes the timing of the city’s latest tourism push all the more asinine. Portland ran a pricy full-page Sunday ad in the New York Times promoting tourism after the Portland police riot squad quit Thursday. “Some of what you’ve heard about Portland is true. Some is not. What matters most is that we’re true to ourselves,” Travel Portland wrote in the ad that could have cost up to $250,000. “You’ve heard a lot about us lately. It’s been a while since you heard from us,” it continues. “After a year of encouraging visitors and locals to support small businesses here and from a distance, it’s time to issue an invitation to come back to Portland,” the ad states. “Two sides to the same coin that keeps landing right on its edge. Anything can happen. We like it this way.” The ad also says “new ideas are welcome” in the city, a place where “you can be yourself.” “This is the kind of place where new ideas are welcome — whether they’re creative, cutting-edge or curious at first glance. You can speak up here. You can be yourself here,” it continues. Of course, the taxpayer money used to procure this ad could have been spent on any number of the projects that would have helped secure the city from these anarchistic rabble-rousers.

Canada Bucks International Trend, Won’t Open Border as Pandemic Fades

Airline industry officials are not happy.

In America and around the world, there is much optimism.  The year-plus reign of the COVID scourge is coming to an end as vaccination and natural antibody rates climb ever higher, and businesses from coast to coast begin to ramp up their capacities. But there are still those out there who are unwilling to admit this very palpable and tangible truth, and who are throttling economic recovery in their reticence. Our northern neighbors just so happen to fit that description. Canada said on Monday it would start cautiously lifting border restrictions for fully vaccinated citizens on July 5 but made clear it would be months before U.S. and other foreign travelers could enter the country. From 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 5 (0359 GMT on July 6), those who have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will no longer have to spend time in quarantine. The move applies to Canadians and permanent residents. “This is the first phase of our precautionary approach … at this time we are not opening up our borders any further,” said Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc. Ottawa first announced the plan on June 9. LeBlanc told reporters that Ottawa was talking to its domestic and international partners “with the goal of allowing fully vaccinated travelers to enter Canada for non-essential reasons in the months to come.” Canada’s unwillingness to capitulate to the reality of the pandemic’s end has adversely affected the airline industry, and has drawn criticism from American lawmakers who believe that more could be done by our allies to the north in the realm of reopening.
