“Simply put, there is no pandemic exception to the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights,” said Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband in a three-page letter sent to California Gov. Gavin Newsom May 19.
DOJ to Calif. governor: Forget about it.
Seems to have revolutionary adaptability, this no-exception decision. Can it be the start of something?
At almost the end of his ringing anything-but-endorsement of governor and mayor, David Marcus also calls for revolution, adding this:
Our politicians serve by our consent; we don’t run our businesses or live our lives by their consent. The suggestion to the contrary is an affront to Americanism.
I’ll say. The Constitution and Bill of Rights are full of what govt cannot do, isn’t it? That’s the definite of limited govt.

CNA Staff, May 20, 2020 / 05:05 pm MT (CNA).- The bishops of Minnesota have permitted parishes to resume public Masses, and to defy a statewide order prohibiting religious gatherings exceeding 10 people.
“An order that sweeps so broadly that it prohibits, for example, a gathering of 11 people in a Cathedral with a seating capacity of several thousand defies reason,” the bishops of Minnesota’s six dioceses said in a May 20 statement.
“Therefore, we have chosen to move forward in the absence of any specific timeline laid out by Governor Walz and his Administration. We cannot allow an indefinite suspension of the public celebration of the Mass,” the bishops added.
Bold and reasonable. Not timid.
