Why would any Californian want to keep a Governor who is destroying the formerly Golden State with an artificial lockdown which he claims is backed by “the science?” Yet, he cannot produce any credible “science” to justify his destruction of California’s economy and small businesses that employ the majority of Californians.

Here is an elite San Francisco-type progressive who is totally insulated from the consequences of his actions by his wealth, power, and position. A man, like Nancy Pelosi, who believes in “Do as I say, not as I do.”


I am still waiting for an answer…


I asked the Governor’s office where Governor Gavin Newsolini derives the power to decide which businesses and individuals are essential in California and why no government agency or employee is non-essential. The answer was to ask Dr. Mark Ghaly, the Secretary of California’s Health and Human Services.

Based in Sacramento, the California Health and Human Services Agency is the state agency tasked with administration and oversight of "state and federal programs for health care, social services, public assistance and rehabilitation" in California. It does not appear that they are able to respond to generalized questions. It also appears that Dr. Ghaly is a South Pasadena, California pediatrician/politician/bureaucrat with experience in organizations that deal with the government’s provision of healthcare or in public health advocacy. He is not a virologist, and epidemiologist, nor is he an economist. It should come as no surprise that Dr. Ghaly is on the board of the California Healthcare Exchange which powers “Covered California.

His wife, Christina, appears to hold a similar local position. as the Director for the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services which supervises and oversees operations of DHS’ directly operated delivery system, including four hospitals and a network of standalone community clinics. She also provides supervision of the following DHS divisions: Finance, Office of Patient Access, Performance Improvement, Nursing Affairs, and Planning & Data Analytics.

The final straw is the state’s mismanagement of medical resources and coordination with county medical authorities. I, for one, did not see the day when our oxygen supplies were being rationed and EMT’s asked to decide who lives or dies – not transporting critical patients to hospitals because they are likely to die.

From the Los Angeles County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Agency. headed by Dr. Christina Ghaly, wife of Newsom’s Secretary of California’s Health and Human Services


Effective immediately, due to the severe impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on EMS and 9-1-1 Receiving Hospitals, adult patients in blunt traumatic and nontraumatic out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) shall not be transported if return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) is not achieved in the field .

Please see below for specific guidance according to the mechanism of the arrest. Note that this directive supersedes Reference 814, Determination/Pronouncement of Death in the Field. The full memo can be found here.


Given the acute need to conserve oxygen, effective immediately, EMS should only administer supplemental oxygen to patients with oxygen saturation below 90%. For patients with hypoxia (02 saturation <90%), the minimum amount of oxygen necessary to maintain the oxygen saturation at or just above 90% shall be administered . An oxygen saturation of 90% is sufficient to maintain normal tissue perfusion in most patients.

Considerations for exceptions :

• Oxygen for the purposes of medication administration and CPAP may be used when needed . Per TP 1245, these interventions should be limited to those patients in severe respiratory distress.
• Patients requiring positive-pressure ventilation due to respiratory failure should continue to receive 100% oxygen.
• Titrated oxygen with a higher target of 94% is recommended for the following specific conditions : carbon monoxide poisoning, suspected pneumothorax, shock, traumatic brain injury.

The full memo can be found here.

As for the problems with high-flow oxygen systems in aging hospitals, shouldn’t this have been detected and remedied long ago when hospitals were being upgraded?

Bottom line…

The reason I remain suspicious of Gavin Newsolini – and especially his medical advice – is because the Governor is a full-blown liberal and the liberals are incentivized to minimize care to senior citizens, one, because they are viewed as non-productive members of society who no longer contribute to the welfare of the state, included reduced tax revenues; two, because they are a “burden” on healthcare systems at the end of their lives; and three, because they are a “burden” on the corrupt, mismanaged pension funds that are grossly underfunded.

One need only read Dr. Ezekiel “E-Z Kill”  Emanuel’s essay in The Atlantic, “Why I Hope to Die at 75.” Let us remember that, Emanuel, the brother of former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, was an adviser to the Obama Administration and is now appointed to President-elect Biden’s Transition COVID-19 Advisory Board. This is the man who proposes formula-based rationing of healthcare. With your value to the state a primary factor.

We are so screwed by progressives like Gavin Newsom who places his self-serving needs above his constituents and his ideology above the U.S. Constitution.

Recall Gavin Newsom Official Petition

We are so screwed.
