The blue state overlords have been beating the drum of “science” and “data” in order to keep their emergency powers, but at this point their “science” is as about as sensible as the “science” that tells us men can be women. We have moved beyond facts and now the COVID response sits squarely in fantasy territory. The only question left is how long are these governors fantasizing about being in power.

California in particular is suffering from anti-science leadership. Governor Newsom uses science – or as he calls it on Twitter…SCIENCE – to continue to step on the necks of Californians even as most counties have seen a dramatic drop in cases. In some parts of California the virus is almost non-existent and yet all of California is being held hostage to the still relatively low mortality rates of Los Angeles and San Francisco.

How can I use the term “relatively low”? Isn’t just one death a tragedy?

Yes, certainly each death is a tragedy but in a pandemic it is the trend that is relative and most of California is trending “We are over this nonsense and the lies coming out of Sacramento right now.” It’s SCIENCE. The numbers do not in the least match our response and every day it becomes more clear that Gavin Newsom has given up on pretending he even cares that most of us know he is lying. That sweet, sweet dictator nectar is just too hard to resist.


My new favorite YouTube channel broke down the numbers in California into some small bites that can be easily digested and sadly they make the case that we are no longer living in an age of science and reason.

Here are some bullet points from the video regarding the state of California:

  • 750 die everyday in CA
  • 3 from COVID under age 55
  • 75% of CA is under 55
  • 97 die every day under age 55 for any reason.
  • 3/4  of the state 2x as many people die in car crashes.

But we’ve known that for a while, haven’t we?
