church's lockdown challenge

Original Article

A sharply divided Supreme Court late Friday turned aside a church's urgent plea that California's coronavirus lockdown orders are putting an unconstitutional burden on religious freedom. Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court's liberals in rejecting a San Diego church's request for relief from Gov. Gavin Newsom's most recent directive limiting churches to 25% of their normal maximum capacity, with an absolute maximum of 100 people at any service.

Comments:

Roberts. Another gift from the Bushies and Karl Rove.

So Roberts thinks it's a bill of suggestions for the government? Time for him to retire, along with his leftard fellow travelers on the court..

The pastor and his members (or anybody willing to join the struggle) should just go to church; they don't need no stinkin' Supreme Court. Civil disobedience seems to be the perfect act here. They could also put it back on the governor and issue an edict, as citizens who elected him and pay his salary, that his job is not essential and that he must cease issuing edicts and open California, and then move as if it's open once their decree is issued. They have about as much right as the governor, at this point, to issue edicts. We have so many illegalities coming from politicians that it's time to put it back on them; let them see what it's like to be under the tyranny of the masses. When the wicked are in power, the people groan. This is America; we don't just groan; we fight back. That used to be our DNA.

We can assume Obama has had some real dirt on this "gentleman" from early on. At some point you would think his conscious would win the fight and allow him to stand up for America and the Constitution, regardless of the consequences.

All Roberts is saying is that religion is no different than any other business and must follow the same arbitrary rules. What makes no sense to sports fans should equally make no sense to the religious.

It is the season of protests. Ask yourself: do you need that building to worship? Really? Is God only in that place? Get the congregation into their cars, go to a free and open parking lot (Walmart, e.g.) open your windows and sing in unison. Play musical instruments if you have them. Make a joyful noise. I'll be others in the lot will join you and you will have made a difference.

Reply 8; George Bush’s record didn’t need just Roberts to stain it. He was a sorry prez altogether. His worst statement, to me, was that “Islam-is-a-religion-of-peace” horsethit. That guaranteed we weren’t going to win against Islamic terrorism. He created Homeland Security ( another bureaucracy). Now we got government gropers, probers, snoopers, and peepers at every major airport, focused on treating us, the general public, as potential terrorists, instead of the real deals! Thanks, George. Enjoy your retirement. P.S; As for all the justices having come from Harvard or Yale (Bush’s alma mater), can we look at grads from Hillsdale College or any of the other schools not beholden to federal money?

Perhaps George II would like to stand up and defend the Faith and the Constitution for America seeing his apparently "Laodicean" choice has lost his way? Or is George Bush satisfied? Any other silent republicans finding it "hard to kick against the goads?" We can only be defeated by ourselves and our willfully chosen apostate leaders.

During the 2012 presidential campaign, former Vice President Joe Biden was a sharp critic of Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s work for investment firm Bain Capital, but now Bain executives are helping fuel Biden’s 2020 presidential bid. Bain co-founder Joshua Bekenstein and his wife Anita each donated $250,000 to Biden’s super PAC in April, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records showed. The donations accounted for the majority of the PAC’s fundraising in April, according to FEC records. Additionally, both Joshua and Anita Bekenstein donated the federal maximum of $5,600 — split between the primary and general election — to Biden’s campaign, FEC records

As states across the country begin the process of reopening, Americans continue to battle over the methods governors and local authorities have used to tackle the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, many states and localities have set up arbitrary and, in many cases, absurd rules that do little more than aggravate citizens and almost nothing to stop the spread of the virus. For instance, some Americans have been pulled over and ticketed for merely driving, hardly an activity that is likely to spread disease. One Pennsylvania woman received a $200 ticket for violating Gov. Tom Wolf’s statewide stay-at-home order when she said she had merely gone on a drive to relieve her quarantine restlessness,

The fate of the 2020 general election could hang on two congressional districts, one in Maine and the other tucked away in Nebraska. Maine and Nebraska are the only two states in the country that split their Electoral College votes by congressional district while also rewarding the statewide victor, giving Democrats extra opportunities to pick up votes in otherwise Republican strongholds. And with the fall fight between President Trump and Joe Biden set to be a tight battle for the White House, every vote will matter on Nov. 3.

There are several lessons we have learned from the CoViD-19 experience such as: the unreliability of predictive models; the danger of depending on foreign supply chains; over-reaction can be a deadly as under-reaction; and the need for better contingency planning. There is one lesson we have not absorbed: to get timely, affordable care, Americans need the private sector, the free market, not the government-controlled health care. When the CoViD crisis began, it was private companies, not government agencies, that quickly produced diagnostic tests, personal protective equipment, ventilators, and developed ideas for both curative medicines

One can pinpoint the exact moment when life in the United States changed, possibly forever. It was the night of March 11th, 2020 and the NBA suspended its season. At about the same time, arguably the world’s most famous actor made a shocking announcement. Within days, states would begin to issue orders restricting the number of people who could gather together. Shortly after that, they began closing schools. But it wasn’t until March 16th that governments began to shut down their states entirely. Why did they take such a draconian step? Because of the release of a bombshell report in Great Britain.

But imagine if former President Bush, as Trump’s most recent Republican predecessor, backed a Democrat. Bush’s voice has the singular power to reach moderate Republicans and Republican-leaning independent voters, freeing them to walk away from the Party of Trump.
