Judge rules against CA governor’s power grab

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) has not been shy about exercising an unbelievable number of emergency powers and executive orders since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, but his propensity for wielding such power came to a crashing halt on Monday.

According to The Hill, a California judge issued a nine-page ruling in which she severely limited Newsom’s executive powers, stating that the governor’s numerous orders, using the pandemic as the foundation, were “an unconstitutional exercise of legislative power.”

Sutter County Superior Court Judge Sarah Heckman acknowledged the constitutionality of the California Emergency Services Act, but decided that Newsom couldn’t use the otherwise important powers to “amend statutes or make new statutes.”

Newsom will no longer be able to exercise “any power under the California Emergency Services Act which amends, alters, or changes existing statutory law or makes new statutory law or legislative policy,” which was nothing short of a landmark win for California Republican Assemblymen James Gallagher and Kevin Kiley.

According to The New York Post, the two Republicans recently filed suit against Newsom for his gross overreach of government power by mailing out unsolicited mail-in ballots to the entirety of the state’s voting population, calling the move an “illegal power grab.”

“This is a victory for separation of powers,” the two lawmakers wrote in a joint statement. “Nobody disputes that there are actions that should be taken to keep people safe during an emergency. But that doesn’t mean that we put our Constitution and free society on hold by centralizing all power in the hands of one man.”

Newsom and his team reportedly have a period of 10 days after the ruling to issue any challenges but as of this writing, only admitted that they were currently “evaluating next steps.”

Victories against government overreach and power in the socialist paradise of California are rare, so it’s beyond refreshing to see a judge with the fortitude to challenge power-hungry officials like Newsom and put them in their place.

  1. From the vote counts, there appears to be a lot of stupid democrat voters electing the garbage back into office in California, Oregon, Washington state, etc. Pres. Trump was derelict in his duties by not issuing an exec order modifying Sec. 230 of the Communications Act to stop on line censoring by facebook, google, twitter, etc. Mr. Trump should have issued the order when he took office, and let his attorneys battle facebook, etc. in the courts….

    1. And, all of the people fleeing liberal states, like California, because is taxes, violence and crooked politicians, are coming into conservative states, like Arizona and Texas, and voting for crooked liberal politicians.

      WTH!

    2. BUT it seeems that the SCHMUCK will rertirn to WHINE as Minority LOSER as Soros, Mini Mikey, Steyer nad CCP BIllions wee WASTED IN SC, KY, Tx and other senate nad House Votes where even Ding bat Pelisi lost some seatd…..But some CCP paid Governors went ut of theor ways to get ILLEGAL mail votes for DEMENTIA JOE and LEGS UP KAMALA

    3. That I agree with. I normally totally agree with President Trump, but not on this one.I keep wondering why certain networks haven’t had their license pulled. Also, a big mistake when he first took office was to not fire all the demos that where left in office. I would have pushed them out the door as I walked in.

  2. I’ve been in California for 63 years and Gavin just like Pelosi are the most corrupt and cheat in every election. I foresee they will be many issues going to Supreme Court. This is why they tried to get Amy not confirmed because they knew she would uphold the law.

    1. TOO BAD THE BARN DOOR HAS BEEN CLOSED A F T E R THE HORSES GOT OUT. A LITTLE TOO LATE FOR THESE BALLOTS, ISN’T IT? HAVEN’T THEY ALREADY BEEN MAILED IN AND COUNTED ? ? ? ? ?

  3. wow must be he and Whitmer of MI cut from the same cloth! Tell me democrats are not trying to steal this election anyway they can? I can not believe that Trump will not be declared winner, yet we knew the mail ins, the extended dates to count the mail ins, all the stories of ballots in dumpsters, and elsewhere this is another attempt of a coup and I am sick this one may be working where all the others failed!

    1. Project Veritas released two videos of a professional ballot harvester in Texas (where ballot harvesting is against the law) is bragging about how many votes her ‘team’ can bring in for Democratic candidates. These candidates, who she names, are hiring her and paying her in cash or favors. And, this type of activity is occurring across the nation. It’s disgusting.

  4. Why the hell
    Didn’t this judge due this several months ago when they first talked about sending ballots to everyone. Not that California would change because they are too far gone but at least people would have to do something to vote instead of ballots being filled out by people maybe even illegals.

  5. Why not do like Michigan is doing they are doing a recall. get organized, get lawyers, get petitions started, get names, get rid of him. He is just a communist POS. Send him back to Russia. Send Pelosi with him. Kick him out of the state, never to return.

    1. We have tried a couple of times to recall him! Here in CA there are 3 or 4 rich families that seem to choose who they want as GOV, and will do their bidding! They are trained to do there bidding! $$$$ talks Always try to keep it with in those families. AND OF COURSE ALWAYS A DEMONCRAT! They have ruined our once GREAT STATE! OH, here is a laugh for you. Folks and kids want to get back to school, he has closed them for everyone and found some private school for his 4 kids to get in person teaching! Typical rat.

  6. he deserved to get his little powers taken from him, you don’t stop people from voting the way they want just because you don’t like someone, and please get God in your life!

  7. IF we had a fair even media, but they’ve lost that title, now they’re just the corrupted, liberal, lame, stream media [CLLSM] and corrupted tech oligarchs pushing all liberal and burying all conservative. We are disadvantaged to the extreme before the games even start.

  8. Newsom is just another lying, cheating, thieving traitor! How he continues to remain governor is proof that the dishonest Democrats will do anything to line their pockets with Taxpayer Dollars and stay in power. Anyone that votes Democrat in this election support dishonesty and double standards in our government!

  9. This election was rigged from the beginning it makes me sick that because they don’t like the man they can destroy all the good he’s done. Casey from PA insisted that Biden would win, in PA that was when Trump had a big lead and before they started counting ballots again today.

  10. DON’T STOP AT CALIFORNIA!! THERE ARE MANY STATES THAT NEED A REFRESHER COURSE IN GOVERNMENT LAW!! IN FACT ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS LOOK NORTH AND IN BORDERING STATES ALSO!!
    MICH, NEW YORK, PEN, ILL!!! JUST TO NAME A FEW!!
