For the last eight months, Gov. Gavin Newsom has addressed residents of the state on a near-daily basis with the latest COVID-19 developments, guidelines and restrictions. But when it comes to following that guidance, Newsom appears to have done just the opposite.

A new report published Friday by the San Francisco Chronicle highlights a recent dinner gathering featuring the California governor and his wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom that contradicts what people in California have been told to do regarding gatherings amid the coronavirus pandemic.

NEWSOME WENT TO BIRTHDAY PARTY OVER THE ALLOWED LIMITS

On Nov. 6, at least 12 people came together at the famed French Laundry in Yountville to celebrate the 50th birthday of Jason Kinney. The group featured people from several households, and was certainly above the state guidelines, which limit gatherings to no more than three households.

A spokesperson for Newsom said that the birthday dinner didn’t violate state guidelines because it was held at an outdoor dining area of the facility.

Still, Newsom apologized and said he should have exercised better judgment.

“While our family followed the restaurant’s health protocols and took safety precautions, we should have modeled better behavior and not joined the dinner,” Newsom’s statement to KTVU said.

The state guidance has not specified if the three household limit applies to outdoor dining gatherings, an apparent loophole that doesn’t clearly assign enforcement responsibilities to the county health dept, the dining establishment or the individuals who have gathered.

Under the state guidelines which were last updated on Oct. 9, gatherings that include more than three households are prohibited.

The state also requires that gatherings be held outside, where virus transmission is less likely, and recommends that they be kept to two hours or less.

WILL THEY EVER PRACTICE WHAT THEY PREACH? AND DID THEY SING HAPPY BIRTHDAY?


PENNSYLVANIA VOTES PART II IN FEDERAL COURT

PENNSYLVANIA VOTES PART II IN FEDERAL COURT

A federal appeals court in Philadelphia on Friday rejected an effort led by a Republican congressional candidate to block about 9,300 ballots that arrived after Election Day.

PENNSYLVANIA VOTES PART II IN FEDERAL COURT

The three-judge panel, led by Chief U.S. Circuit Judge Brooks Smith, noted the “unprecedented challenges” facing the nation this year, especially the “vast disruption” caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Smith said the panel sought to uphold “a proposition indisputable in our democratic process: that the lawfully cast vote of every citizen must count.”

The ruling involves the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s decision to accept mail-in ballots that arrived by Friday, Nov. 6, three days after the close of polling places. That court had agreed with Democratic state officials who wanted to extend the deadline amid concerns about Postal Service delays and the pandemic.

State Republicans have separately asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review the issue. However, there are not enough late-arriving ballots to change the results in Pennsylvania, given Joe Biden’s lead. The Democratic former vice president won the state by about 60,000 votes out of about 6.8 million cast.

STATE JUDGE TOSSES LATE PENNSYLVANIA BALLOTS

STATE JUDGE TOSSES LATE PENNSYLVANIA BALLOTS


Pennsylvania court: Secretary of state lacked authority to change deadline 2 days before Election Day
Judge ruled ballots that were previously set aside should not be counted

A Pennsylvania judge ruled in favor of the Trump campaign Thursday, ordering that the state may not count ballots where the voters needed to provide proof of identification and failed to do so by Nov. 9.

State law said that voters have until six days after the election — this year that was Nov. 9 — to cure problems regarding a lack of proof of identification. After the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that mail-in ballots could be accepted three days after Election Day, Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar submitted guidance that said proof of identification could be provided up until Nov. 12, which is six days from the ballot acceptance deadline. That guidance was issued two days before Election Day.

“[T]he Court concludes that Respondent Kathy Boockvar, in her official capacity as Secretary of the Commonwealth, lacked statutory authority to issue the November 1, 2020, guidance to Respondents County Boards of Elections insofar as that guidance purported to change the deadline … for certain electors to verify proof of identification,” Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt said in a court order.

READ ORDER HERE:

This was in line with the Trump campaign’s argument, which was that there was no basis in the state’s law to extend the identification deadline, and that Boockvar did not have the power to unilaterally change it.

JUDGE TOSSES LATE PENNSYLVANIA BALLOTS

The court had previously ordered that all ballots where voters provided proof of identification between Nov. 10 and 12 should be segregated until a ruling was issued determining what should be done with them.

On Thursday, Leavitt ruled that those ballots shall not be counted.

This is one of several legal challenges the Trump campaign is bringing in Pennsylvania. On Friday they are scheduled to have a hearing over thousands of ballots that they claim were improperly counted despite lacking required information.

Additionally, the campaign awaits action from the Supreme Court regarding whether the Pennsylvania Supreme Court acted properly in granting the three-day extension for accepting mail-in ballots.

MARK CUBAN ENCOURAGES FOOD BANK DONATIONS
JOHN LEGEND FEEL POLITICAL DONATION MORE CRITICAL

Mark Cuban and John Legend tangled on Twitter Thursday over if donations are better served toward a food bank or for political causes for the Democratic party.

The 62-year-old billionaire brought up the topic in suggesting to his followers, ‘For those considering donating to Reps or Dems in the Georgia Senate run-offs, can you please re-consider and donate that money to your local foodbank and organizations that can help those without food or shelter? Lets put Americans in need above Politics.’

Legend, 41, replied that the political donations would help more people in the long run.

The latest: Mark Cuban, 62, and John Legend, 41, tangled on Twitter Thursday over if donations are better served toward a food bank or for political causes for the Democratic party

‘I get that politics is annoying and contentious, but the bottom line is that the Senate flipping would be far more impactful than a food bank donation.

We need massive stimulus and aid to individuals and small businesses. Government needs to do this. Charity isn’t sufficient … that being said, I’ll be doing both,’ said the EGOT winner, who’s won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award.

Cuban, who owns the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks franchise, countered that the effectiveness of political ads was limited in comparison to taking care of the less fortunate.

‘Let’s go all the way,’ Cuban said. ‘Stop donating to charity, give those $ to politicians because 1 party will solve all of our problems! Come on John. There is a point of diminishing returns on political ad spend, there are no diminished returns when it comes to feeding the hungry.’

JOHN LEGEND MARK CUBAN TWITTER WAR OVER DONATIONS

He asked: ‘Do you really think more money will increase the chances of winning, or is it an unknown and you figure it can’t hurt? And do you really think either party puts fundamental reform over gaining/retaining power?’

Legend said he was confident ‘the Democrats will do more to help the country recover’ than the Republican party, and the ‘difference isn’t even close.’

McConnell ‘will be obstructionist and try to find ways to make’ President-elect Joe Biden ‘a one-term president, just as he promised (and failed) to do with’ former President Barack Obama.

He added he was unsure if the Georgia runoffs in support of Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock were another case of diminishing returns, he planned ‘to err on the side of donating to help Ossoff and Warnock win.

‘I hope it works,’ he said. ‘It will be better for the country.’

A Tour Of This Haunted Prison In Northern California Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

There is nothing more terrifying than an old, abandoned prison, except for maybe a correctional facility that housed troubled youths for over half a century.

The Preston School of Industry was a correctional facility in Northern California and is still open for tours to this day.

NOR CAL ADVENTURES HAUNTED PRISON IN IONE

The Preston Castle Foundation maintains the building and operates tours. Several events are hosted at the Castle throughout the year, including wine tastings, murder mysteries, a haunted house at Halloween, and holiday celebrations.


The castle is located in Ione, which is a small, unassuming community in Amador county.

At the time it was constructed, the Preston Castle was an innovative approach to rehabilitating, rather than just housing, juvenile delinquents.

The young boys who first stayed here were removed from the more hostile environment at the San Quentin State Prison.


The detention center is rumored to be haunted by previous inmates as well as staff members who lived and worked among these troubled boys.

It’s been said that this was the first correctional facility of its kind in the country. Despite the fact that the boys who were housed here got out of the adult prison and into a better environment, this facility wasn’t without its troubles.

The reformatory operated from the late 1800s to 1960 and is rumored to be the sight of an unsolved murder,
countless instances of corporal punishment and many tragic deaths.

There are several small markers of the troubled youths who once lived here.

Famous individuals who spent time within these walls include Merle Haggard, Eddie Anderson, Rory Calhoun, Don Jordan, Eddie Machen, Pancho Gonzales, Neal Cassady, Tony Cornero,
Caryl Chessman, Joseph Paul Cretzer, and Eddie Bunker.

The building is a California Historical Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

While it looks pretty welcoming on the outside, the inside of the castle is eerie and haunting.

It’s incredible to think about the young men who spent so much of their formative years inside these cold, stark walls rather than with a loving family.

The best time to visit if you have an affinity for the supernatural is during Halloween, of course.
You’ll be transported back to the ’30s and ’40s and see what it was like for the young men who lived and died here.

Those of use who have seen Preston Castle in person know how terrifying but also intriguing it is.
Would you dare to step foot in this paranormal establishment?


CHICAGO MAYOR CANCELS THE HOLIDAYS

CHICAGO MAYOR CANCELS THE HOLIDAYS

Chicago mayor tells people to cancel their Thanksgiving plans

CHICAGO MAYOR CANCELS THE HOLIDAYS IN THE CITY

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced a new round of social distancing orders Thursday, after spikes in coronavirus cases have meant the city could see another 1,000 people dead by the end of the year.

The order is expected to last at least 30 days, with city officials telling Chicagoans to “cancel traditional Thanksgiving celebrations.”

The new guidelines means private residences are no longer advised to follow the six-people or less policy, and instead asks people to limit in-house guests to “essential workers” only, such as healthcare workers or childcare providers.

“If we continue on the path we’re on and you and me and others don’t step up and do more, our estimates are that we could see 1,000 more Chicagoans die from this virus by the end of the year,” the mayor said in a statement Thursday.

NO BUSINESS’S SHUT DOWN YET

Though Lightfoot has not shut down any businesses at this time, people are being directed to only leave their homes for work, to attend school, seek medical care, shop for groceries and prescriptions or to pick up takeout food.

When asked why she chose not to shut down “non essential” businesses, Lightfoot said: “This is a progressive step. I hope we don’t have to go any further than this.”

“If the possibility of 1,000 more people dying in the city in the next seven weeks doesn’t grab you by the throat as it did me when I started seeing that modeling, then there’s little we’re going to do to move you,” she added.

Illinois officials reported 12,702 new confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, according to the Chicago Tribune, breaking a record set the previous day.

“Major portion of that spread is happening in our homes and private venues, with the friends and family, who we love and trust in these spaces people feel safe we/you feel safe, and you let your guard down. And you’re not as diligent,” Lightfoot said. “We have to stop and reverse this trend in order to save lives.”

The mayor, however, took to the streets just last week when Joe Biden became the president-elect. Lightfoot was spotted in close proximity to the public — who were largely wearing masks but not practicing the social distancing orders recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

BEETLEJUICE LOOK ALIKE WANTS MORE MONEY

The mayor, who removed her mask during her speech, also touched on the coronavirus while applauding the win of the Biden-Harris ticket, saying, “We need resources to fight this plague.”

Offices, salons and movie theaters have not had additional restrictions placed on them as they already were working under stricter guidelines, but the mayor warned that if people were seen not acknowledging capacity limits there would be consequences.

“If we see you violating these rules in any way, we’re not going to hesitate to take action,” she said.

The mayor also faced criticism earlier this year during Chicago’s first spike in cases when photos of her surfaced having her hair cut without wearing a mask, at a time when hair salons were deemed “unnecessary” and shut down.

The photo also happened to appear just days after Lightfoot released a PSA telling women that “Getting your roots done” was not essential.
