One of California’s Last Conservative Cities Defies Lockdown Order

Newport Beach, California, is one of the redder cities in Orange County. Although the suburban county has trended blue in recent years, the wealthy seaside community remains a conservative bastion in an increasingly liberal state.

With that tradition in mind, the Newport Beach City Council voted to keep their beaches open, in defiance of Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom’s orders.

Fox News’ Brie Stimson reports:

The council voted 5-2 against the measure and instead advised city officials to enforce social distancing at the beach, FOX 11 in Los Angeles reported.

An estimated 40,000 beachgoers packed Newport Beach both Friday and Saturday as Southern California temperatures soared into the nineties.

“You didn’t see those images at L.A. beaches and San Diego beaches and [in] Northern California,” Newsom said Monday of the Newport Beach crowds, “because we had strong guidelines that were not only adopted but were abided by,” The Los Angeles Times reported.

He called it an example of what “not to do” and promised to increase enforcement of the statewide stay-at-home order if people aren’t social distancing.

Newsom also warned that Newport Beach’s noncompliance would slow California’s planned economic reopening.

I’m sure he was. But he as the rest of the demoncrats are just plane idiots. And they should all be tried for their high crimes of treason. And hang them all by their necks until dead. Follow the laws in the Constitution then and only then will you see a BIG difference from the tyrants. They have gotten away with too much now it is time they pay the price for their crimes.

God bless the conservative residents of Newport Beach!
It sure is strange New York has less than twenty million residents they had the most draconian lockdown in the USA, they have 300,000 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu and 23,000 deaths. We in Florida have a population of more than 35 million, we have had about 33,000 cases and 1,200 deaths! So this is another perfect example that communism doesn’t work! All the democrat officials in the top seven states with Lung Flu should be arrested for murder immediately

Agreed it’s a conspiracy to bring trumps numbers down at the behests of Americans
They don’t care are this so-called pandemic- they care about regaining their power base – and Americans are causalities of war. Lock up the dems

About time someone stood up for their rights. No way that perfectly healthy people should be quarantined. Historically quarantines were always for sick people.

Well of course Newport Beach was crowded since it was the only beach open for hundreds of miles. Open them all up and the crowding will be cut way down.

And, what will he do? The city council will no doubt have problems getting re-elected, because Orange Co. had their election stolen by fraudulent votes in 2018. NB needs to get ready for a fight… They should never back down..once a precedent is established, it’s almost impossible to turn it back. MAGA

When will “COMMON SENSE” start being used? I get outside in the sun, as it only takes 1.5 minutes to kill this virus. When I go shopping, I pick out a cart that was sitting in the parking lot when I drove in. WHY? Because the sun has “Sterilized” it. When I get home, my non perishable items sit on my patio table for at least five minutes. Riding in the subway, and living in apartment buildings keep people from ever being in “Direct Sunlight”. I’ll bet that farmers and other rural people have far fewer cases of the virus. That’s why the “Hot Spots” are all “Big Cities”?

Every American needs to stand up for their FREEDOMS. Don’t let stupid politicians think for you. God gave you a brain, either use it or lose it. This so called “pandemic” is not as bad
as the flu each year. No one wants to die but we are all going to die sometime, so stand up & fight these know-it-all leaders. Put your faith in God & be strong.

It is about time Californians took a stand and defied the Democratic regime. I hope it spreads to many California cities, as long as they social distance, until a cure is found. Democrat leadership, under Premier Newsom, has ruled California and turned it into a cesspool. They ensured their continued domination by fixing their voting (i.e, through vote harvesting, illegal alien voting, no ID voting rules, etc.) so they stay in control. Californians need to stand up to Newsom and his gang of crooks. Dems (those that are loyal hardworking voters) is this what you want for America? Take a good look at California, I was there just a few years ago and stayed in a Stockton hotel situated in a heavy illegal alien area. The door in my hotel room had been smashed in and repaired several times (very obvious) and the hotel attendants were situated behind bullet proof glass. I stayed there one night. The next hotel I stayed at in Manteca CA was walled with security gates, as were several others I passed. Is this what you want to happen to all of America. An America where you have to lock your door every night and turn on a security system to be safe (hopefully). Where is is human excrement in your streets and drug paraphernalia littering your sidewalks. Your party leadership is on the wrong track (i.e., socialism, abortion to actual birth, open borders, etc.) and you empower them with your votes. Put a stop to it, walk away. That is the only way your leadership is going to get the message, if you take away their power by taking away you vote. Walk away, I did several years ago and you can do it now – all it takes is a single step in the right direction.

Pelosi said shortly after the Senate shut down the libs phony impeachment. She was slyly seen to say, “just wait and see what happens next!” Just a coincidence, that this was the next thing?! Doubtful?!

If the Newport Beach city government doesn’t follow Newsome’s orders he is going to get terribly, terribly angry and slap them with his purse. What a crackpot.

Fedup, now you’re talking. I see the hand of God at work in this scenario. Some people may disagree, but God is in control of the affairs on mankind. If God doesn’t want this virus to attack me, I could roll around in the bed sheets of a deceased virus victim and it would have no affect. Conversely, If God wanted that virus to kill me there is nowhere that I could hide from it.

How Newsom can tread Newport for non compliance, he does not comply with our Constitution and Federal immigration Laws. Look yourself in a mirror dirty moron. Bravo Newport, great to see some conservative thinkers in Calimexico not dirty puppets of Pelose, Brown, Newsom and Gety.

The hospitals are empty, the nurses are unemployed, John Hopkins numbers do not hold up and people are literally dying in isolation – this ain’t democracy. Liars. Watch this video! I rest my case.

The democratic governors are lockstep in making Trump numbers go downward and they will stop at nothing. People are so damn brainwashed and fear has taken over common sense, intellect, and ones faith. Image that?

Lots of folks are changing their politics and voting republican. Trump has said some dumb ass stuff – true but he has never used Americans or compromised their well-being like this shit that’s going on. it’s the flu. People die from the flu ever year and until now the reporting on the flu was trustworthy – why are doctors unable to treat their patients with standard prescriptions or at least have the discussion without being ostracized? The fake ass media is flaming the burn – mind control people.. commercials & the news have psychologically messed up the thinking of American for some time to come -wait and see…sheep to the slaughter

New Port Beach yo have my complete adoration, you are the only hope for countless people to be able to use the cool waters of the ocean on blistering hot days. You are not breaking any law’s written in the U.S. Constitution.
What Newson is doing is illegal, like everything else he does. “Sanctuary City” is illegal, aiding and abetting criminals is illegal, Allowing people illegally into our country is a crime. We have laws written into our Constitution to be taken seriously especially by our so called leaders. What kind of leader is our (or any) elected Governor who does not follow the laws of the U.S. Constitution? No body is above the law. Our Governor took it all on by himself to lock up healthy law abiding citizens, even though the constitution says only sick people should be quarantined. Well, maybe he is practicing to be the future Dictator of the U.S.A. then he would be able to skirt any law written in the then abolished Constitution. Maybe that is why our children are on the bottom of the civilized worlds education program. They would be the sheep that follow his ego. He is on an unstoppable power trip. Our hope is that this will all stop next November.
