Terms and Conditions – California Outlines Six Requirements Before Lifting Home Detainment and Reopening The Economy…

To get ahead of any federal guidelines allowing states to re-open their economy, Governor Gavin Newsom is outlining the terms and conditions for California. Please remember the key words that all totalitarian minds use in their language.  When you see the code-words: “challenge“, “opportunity“, “partner” or “support“, pay extra attention.

Governor Gavin Newsom and the government of California now outline six conditions and requirements that must be met before the government will lift the stay-at-home restriction and/or modify the California economic closure. [pdf Here]

California will not lift their lock-down orders until the government has:

(1) The ability to monitor and protect our communities through testing, contact tracing, isolating, and supporting those who are positive or exposed.

  • Do we have the ability to identify contacts of those who are positive to reduce further transmission?
  • Do we have the ability to test everyone who is symptomatic?

(2) The ability to prevent infection in people who are at risk for more severe COVID-19.

  • Are older Californians and the medically vulnerable living in their own homes supported [under surveillance] so they can continue appropriate physical distancing?
  • Have we developed a plan to quickly identify and contain outbreaks in facilities housing older Californians, those living with disabilities, those currently incarcerated, and those with co-morbidities?

(3) The ability of the hospital and health systems to handle surges.

  • Do we have adequate bed capacity, staff and supplies such as ventilators and masks?
  • Can our healthcare system adequately address COVID19 and other critical healthcare need?

(4) The ability to develop therapeutics to meet the demand.

  • Have we built a coalition of private, public, and academic partners to accelerate the development of therapeutics?
  • Have we identified potential therapeutics that have shown promise?

(5) The ability for businesses, schools, and child care facilities to support physical distancing.

  • Have we worked with businesses to support physical distancing practices and introduced guidelines to provide health checks when employees or the general public enter the premises?

(6) The ability to determine when to reinstitute certain measures, such as the stay-at-home orders, if necessary.

  • Are we tracking the right data to provide us an early warning system?
  • Do we have the ability to quickly communicate the need to reinstate these measures?


The publication of this decree is actually quite remarkable.  I was floored when I read it.

Notice within the six terms and conditions there is ZERO CONSIDERATION for rights of the individual.  Every condition is framed around the interests of the state.  The individual is literally framed as adverse to the interests of the state.

Please pause and allow yourself appropriate time to reflect on the seismic shift in this big government state outlook.  It doesn’t matter if you don’t want to be tested.

It doesn’t matter if you want to be contract-traced.  It doesn’t matter if you don’t want to be monitored. It doesn’t matter if you don’t want to be “supported”.

Your rights as an individual are dissolved by the state, where the state interests begin.

Again, re-read it.  There is ZERO consideration for rights of individuals.  All consideration, every consideration, is framed around the interests of the state.

Until the state government identifies and agrees that these specific state designated terms and conditions are met, all Californians are to remain under home detention; and all civil rights are suspended by order of the state.

Additionally, the state will only consider a limited amount of loosened the restrictions; and permit a modified amount of liberty; if, and only if, the state is assured to be able to immediately institute the rules of the original citizen confinement.   That means as long as the state fears they may not be able to accomplish this again… the current status will be retained.

They Say This In Writing !


The State of California is accomplishing this without even attempting to create a single law; or have a single representative vote… This is all being carried out by decree.

At the end of their presentation the California government admits things will forever be changed.  Restaurants will have new rules, less tables; citizens will be required to wear masks; and “new opportunities will likely arise to support mitigation.”

      Despite the beliefs of progressive politicians, our constitution still exists. Americans have willingly supported voluntary recommendations to combat the spread of the virus. Any way you look at it these voluntary measures have been widely practiced and, as a result, have been successful. But when these voluntary actions get transformed into law and begin being enforced by the police, our country is headed for trouble. These authoritarian suspensions of our constitutional rights should be challenged in our legal system. We must once and for all demonstrate that American government cannot transform itself into a police state.

      I suspect when President Trump says business is open, the people will go all in. If Newsome says no it wont go well with his popularity with demand business owners.

      With summer approaching there will be some very angry people in the entertainment industry (Disneyland, Universal Studios, Sea World, Hollywood bowl, Hotels…) should Newsome continue to act as King of Ca.

    I live here in California. Moved here(not by choice) in February 2019 because the company I work for got bought out and I had to be transferred to San Diego. I hate it here. I’ve hated it here since I got here. Taxes and cost of living is ridiculous.

    I’ve been working from home the past month and my apartment lease is up in August. I see no reason whatsoever to stay here when I have to be working from home anyway, and if Newsome gets his way it looks like I will be doing so into August. I’m out of here and moving into temporary housing in Nevada or Arizona once my apartment lease is up. If my company has a problem with that they can go without me as I have enough in savings to manage.

    • Hey, I’m a HUGE believer in States’ Rights and decentralized government, but I would think that, since ports are essential to the survival of American people, the Federal Government (Trump) CAN issue orders that call for reduced restrictions in order to facilitate importation of vital materials that are essential to national defense AND the welfare of the people. As such, this would NOT be an unnecessary or unconstitutional infringement on States Rights.

      How ELSE could land-locked states be expected to survive if coastal states (like CA or NY) where the BIG, deepwater ports exist could throttle interstate commerce?

But maybe only the leadership… I would think that the majority of the rank-and-file would be with Trump.

      It may seem to be a big mistake.
      I would counter that there was only one way that President Trump could attain total control over the entire nation and that was to declare a state of Emergency in every state.
      He is standing back and allowing these Governors to show their totalitarian bent.
      It is much more powerful for the people waking up to the truth themselves. He is allowing these Governors to show their true colours.
      The same way he did with Mueller, the Ukrainian phone call, Rod Ro standing nervously behind Bill Barr as he announces the Mueller report found no guilt on behalf of PDJT.
      His M.O. is to let these deep state liars expose themselves and he is a master of it. He allowed Mueller, Rosenstein, Ryan, Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Dr. Fauci and Dr. Brix, the WHO, China’s brutality and lying and Chuck Schumer to be shown as the liars they are.
      AG Barr has already issued an edict that states the Constitution is King, not a virus.
      Because the National Emergency is under affect, he is King.
      He will use this to play the Trump card.
      He is a master of Sun Tzu and his Art of War and is using it brilliantly.

          There are hiding spots that look like ordinary furniture.



          Decentralizing your gun storage makes it more difficult for thieves to find your guns and far easier for you to protect yourself. This means putting firearms in strategic locations throughout your home so that thieves can’t locate all of them at once also giving you fast access to your guns when you need it.

          Store all of your guns in a single gun safe and thieves will find them in no time. They’ll cut into it and, in just a few minutes, make off with all of your guns. It happens every day.
          If you store all your firearms in a single gun safe, you’d better hope to be close to it, with fast access, if you ever need to protect yourself and your family from an intruder.

        Because………TRUMP! He won’t let us come to harm.

    My worried friends. Fear Not! President Trump, due to the war powers act is the King.
    He is watching these governors very closely, and as you know, people are not reacting well to their power grabs.
    Be at peace. This needed to happen.
    The Trump card is sure to be played soon.
    Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) is being shown to be somewhat of a miracle drug. It looks like it’s curing Lyme’s disease, with the addition of Zinc.
    Zinc makes the cell wall more permeable.
    Fear Not!

    Quick takes:

    1) Surveillance state. Nor more needs to be said.

    2) At least here in Massachusetts, the vast, vast number of deaths have occurred in long term elderly care facilities, with worst records belonging to state run veterans’ homes which would presumably meet these “conditions.” They failed miserably. This model of centralized authority failed as centralized authority models tend to. Not the right way to handle future situations.

    3) We appear to already have those abilities despite being largely unprepared. The “surge” sputtered and we are likely not past the peak. This is a baseless justification for 4)…

    4) Slush funds, union carve outs, and lobbyist “non-proft” grats .

    5) New regulations to raise funds the state via licensing and fines. See 4).

    6) See 1).

    I have and still advocate for creation of pandemic guidelines and protocols, much as we have for wildfires, floods, hurricanes etc. However, this declaration is an extra-legal fiat that does not address the core issues and instead seeks to cement the erosion of civil liberties.

    The Progressive politicians know this will smacked down by the courts. It gives them a way to show their progressive supporters that they did everything they could to “save” lives without actually having to lose face by back tracking. The longer the stay at home order goes on and people are out of work, the more angry people are going to be with the Democrats. I think they and the media seriously miscalculated the shutdown of the Trump economy. I live in PA and independents are pissed.

  36. It seems like every day I wake up and it’s a bright spring morning with hope in the air. One of the most beautiful times of the year in this part of NY. I go outside and the forsythia are the most brilliant yellow imaginable; the birds are singing, leaves are starting to appear on the trees and plants are pushing their way way up out of the ground.
    Everything is fine until I sit to down to work at my computer and begin looking at the news of the day, culminating in a story like this one from Sundance, which reminds me that the nightmare isn’t even close to ending. How did we ever get to a place where American citizens are willing to give up their liberty and freedom without a fight?
    Jefferson said “A government that is big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take away everything you have.” Are we there yet?

      No one has given up without a fight, take heart.
      The expiration date on this insanity is nearing and citizens of every political persuasion are tiring of the lockdown. Yes, there are the usual hysterics who want to stay at home hiding, but most want to go back to normal.
      Even Leftists want to have fun, and house arrest is getting old.

      So true.
      All the joy is being crushed out of Spring.
      Just keep to small doses of computing, then go outside.
      If it’s raining, read a book (preferably a classic).

      I’ve run through Tolkien, and the Aubrey/Maturin novels by O’Brian since this mess started.
      BUT, I’m starting to think Vince Flynn, Tom Clancy, and Mark Greaney might be more apropos.

      • abstain- not all the joy has been taken.
        I love being outdoors and am able to do so quite freely. I get to see some of my family members who live nearby. We walk by the river and nobody bothers us. I’ve gone paddling on the nearby lake.
        There are some things they can’t take from us like beauty and love.

    All those requirements, and nothing about considering how many people are actually sick. Maybe it’s in the full document, but none of those six conditions has anything to do with whether there are actually still sick people.

    Prediction: Since Montana Governor Steve Bullock has admitted he has no plan to “reopen” the fourth largest state in the union, he will adopt this plan as his own. On orders of Chuck You Schumer, of course.


    • oldumb says:

      Montana is the 4th largest state – by land mass? What does chuck schumer have to do with Montana. Your comment confuses me.


      • thatgreatnorthernguy says:

        Yes, fourth largest by land mass, but with a population of barely a million people, and only 400 confirmed cases of Kung Flu. Only seven deaths. Bullock’s statewide lockdown obviously wasn’t needed, but Bullock seems to think Montana should be run like California. As for Schumer, he flew into Helena a week before Bullock announced he was running for Senator. ( This, after his haunting Iowa in a failed Presidental campaign- in which he repeatedly and pointedly stated he wasn’t interested at all in a Senate bid. Schumer works him like a sock puppet.

    Living here as a transpant for 20 years i would give this another week before people see the other states opening up (particularly those with a higher infection rate than California had) and people begin to ask hard questions like “When can we be done with this bullshit?” California never had overflowing hospitals or all the other scare predictions so its becoming tougher and tougher to go along with this gag.

      A hospital here in San Diego just furloughed 21 workers because they aren’t needed, haha. One of furloughed workers was whining and stomping her foot saying they should be retrained to work in other areas of the hospital rather than being laid off. Selfish worker. I bet she doesn’t give a rat’s behind about all the UNEMPLOYED people that have not worked in forever. This pandemic is underwhelming. While many people seem quite happy to say home and collect unemployment, lots of parties and other things going on and Home Depot is always crowded, so not too many worried about getting sick.

    Are any of these bovine droppings conditions Constitutional?

    If any democrat controlled States do get away with something like this, it could very well be a blessing in disguise

    If republican controlled States are up and running, and normalcy and productivity return, the people in democrat States will be outraged with their “leadership” and might finally see the light
