    Surge Summary: Across America, people are pushing back against unreasonable and destructive COVID-19 lockdown policies. Statistics indicate that most coronavirus transmission occur within families – not from churches or restaurants. Some are demanding politicians who are imposing these unnecessary restrictions should be held accountable.

    I am pleased to see that the grassroots outrage and resistance to the left’s lockdown orders is growing.  Here’s the latest:

    • 150 businesses in Minnesota are defying the shutdown orders of Gov. Tim Walz.
    • Restaurant owners and workers demonstrated against the latest round of restrictions imposed by Governor Andrew Cuomo.
    • A New Jersey gym owner is refusing to close despite facing more than $1 million in fines.
    • Rural towns in Washington state are defying Governor Jay Inslee’s lockdown orders.
    • California Governor Gavin Newsom, who ignores his own shutdown orders, is facing a growing recall effort.
    • The Supreme Court ruled 6-to-3 to overturn Colorado Governor Jared Polis’s absurd restrictions on churches.

    Here’s something you should know:  According to New York state’s contact tracing data, private household gatherings were responsible for 74% of the coronavirus spread from September through November.  Yet Cuomo is attacking restaurants and churches, which were responsible for only 1.43% and 0.69% of coronavirus cases.

    While I am pleased to read reports that Congress may be on the verge of passing additional emergency relief measures to help struggling businesses and families, I think progressive politicians should lead by example.

    Every governor and mayor who orders businesses to essentially commit suicide by depriving them of customers and income should not be allowed to collect their own income.  Period.
