    Surge Summary: Apologists like to throw out the word “Science” every time a courageous business owner or American citizen or commentator points out the fecklessness – and often hypocrisy – of government officials COVID policy. But that doesn’t make the outrage go away. From California and CNBC – among other venues – some folks are saying they’ve had enough.

    Have you seen the incredibly moving video of Angela Marsden?  She’s a California restaurant owner who just invested $80,000 to set up an outdoor dining facility in a last-ditch effort to serve customers and keep her workers employed.

    But left-wing politicians in Los Angeles County just banned all dining.  And I mean all dining – indoor AND outdoor.

    There is no science behind what is being demanded here.  No science shows that outdoor activity is spreading COVID.  But it’s too easy for these politicians and bureaucrats to make such decisions because they don’t affect them.

    This is a war against working class Americans!  And California is the worst offender of all.

    Predictably, the outdoor dining ban exempts the film industry.  Hollywood hypocrisy at its worst!

    So you can imagine Marsden’s reaction when she showed up at her restaurant last week to find a huge new outdoor dining area set up right next to her new outdoor facility that was just banned!  Hers is illegal.  But this new one, run by a movie studio, is legal.

    Why?  Science?  Of course not.  Hollywood has money to throw around.  Small business owners don’t.

    California will turn itself into a pretzel to defend illegal immigrants.  But where is the sanctuary city for hard-working citizens?  Where will they be safe from marauding bureaucrats who are trying to destroy their lives?

    This is the state where residents are supposed to step over human feces to get into their businesses and serve customers.  This is a state that hands out needles to drug addicts because it cares more about them than hard-working taxpayers.

    Governor Gavin Newsom doesn’t think twice about telling Californians to stay home, while he racks up a $15,000 bill at an exclusive French restaurant for a birthday party!

    Pat Buchanan used to talk about the “peasants with pitchforks” rising up against our out-of-touch elites. Of course, he was speaking metaphorically. But leftists do show up at public events with baseball bats, and our media passes that off as “mostly peaceful.”

    While I am pleased to see people like Angela Marsden and a handful of pastors standing up and speaking out, I’m surprised that they are still a distinct minority.  Whatever happened to the land of the free and the home of the brave?  Increasingly, it seems that we are neither.

    It is time for massive opposition by middle-class and working-class Americans to reclaim their rights!

    Santelli vs. Sorkin

    Rick Santelli, whose epic 2009 rant launched the Tea Party movement, and Andrew Ross Sorkin had their own debate about the reasonableness of the lockdowns on CNBC recently.

    Sorkin hid behind “science” and suggested that government mandates limiting our rights to attend church and engage in commerce were the answer.  Santelli defended freedom and the common sense of the American people.

    It was a good example of the debate that is raging across the country right now, as the progressive left wages war against the working class.  It will defend left-wing demonstrations but then tell us that people eating dinner outside or going to church are what’s harming America.  It’s beyond absurd!
