Californians are ignoring Newsom & Co.’s latest ‘mask mandate’

Good news! The December 15 mask mandate of Gavin Newsom is falling flat. People want their facial freedom after 1.75 years of unscientific oppression by unconstitutional Democrat politicians and bureaucrats, along with prostituting “Republican” county supervisors.

On our SaveCalifornia.com social media pages (primarily Facebook and Instagram), we’ve asked people to report in. And it appears that most California businesses – outside of the 10 tyrannical Democrat-controlled counties that have imposed their own mask mandates — are NOT requiring customers to wear masks, even if their door signs say so.

Stop and realize these door signs are the business owner’s sign of submission to tyrannical, unscientific, anti-people government and to the aggressive, lie-based “Karens” out there, not a sign to you.

What people tell us is encouraging. Because most business owners and managers are showing they no longer believe in mask mandates. Especially since there’s no new government enforcement.

And despite Costco’s own statewide mask mandate, health-conscious Californians tell us they still walk in maskless and successfully shop. All you have to do is say “no thank you,” or something else (or say nothing) when walking in and the door monitor says you need a mask. Apparently, no Costco employee stops shoppers who do this and confidently walk forward!

Molly told us, “My husband went to Costco and Target and they both said he needed a mask and he told both stores nope, I’m not wearing one & walked past them. They didn’t enforce it on him.”

“JWest” wrote in about his Costco experience, saying, “If you take a mask at the door and then take it off nobody says anything while you shop.”

Jessica reported in, saying, “Also Costco Carlsbad hands you a mask at the door if you don’t have one. After entering, I didn’t wear it and shopped without receiving any comments.”

And Jaremy told us: “Costco tried tonight. We said no three times, then asked to speak to a manager. Be polite but firm. Let them witness lions after herding the sheep. The manager was good and told us we could shop maskless. Told us to say we have a medical exemption next time to avoid any issues, but that shouldn’t be necessary. Stand firm Californians.”

So please, stop wearing these useless masks, even where signs are posted. Ignore them and just bravely walk in. We must be bold to turn this around. Because, like me, are you done with this lie-based near-slavery? California is not a “hospital,” and we must get these useless signs of submission off our faces. Just remember the choice is yours.

Remember, no one has died from the Omicron variant (it’s only been claimed one person in England has died “with” it). And the vaccine-caused Omicron variant has very mild symptoms.

What should alarm you? I’ll tell you what’s grieving me — all the people who are being injured or killed by these experimental biological agent called “Covid vaccines.” We’re seeing some very sobering statistics, both in the U.S. and in Europe, yet those are only the tip of the iceberg.

I mean, have you wondered why some young athletes are suddenly dropping dead? And there’s a dire prediction that many more “vaccinated” people will die too.

So we must keep sharing with as many people as possible the facts, evidence, and logic Big Government, Big Pharma, Big Medicine, Big Media, and Big Tech won’t. This is a matter of life, health, truth, and love!

Defy Newsom’s unscientific statewide mask ‘order’

Tuesday, December 14, 2021, 9:21 am | Randy Thomasson
Scroll down for action steps

You have permission to be righteously angry over the new mask “order” of Newsom & Co.

Set to “go into effect” December 15, Newsom’s statewide “order” is another example that none of this is scientific. Because the Omicron variant is much weaker than the seasonal flu, which kills healthy children and young adults (remember years ago when the media used to talk about the seasonal flu, without lockdowns, masks, tests, and mandatory jabs?).

And no one in the world has died from the Omicron variant, despite you hearing that one person (probably someone with comorbidities) has died “with” Omicron in England.

And the death rate, correctly or falsely attributed to the Delta variant, even by the State’s own metrics, is extremely low. December 12’s 7-day average death rate of 0.02 deaths per 100,000 infections means if infected, you have a 1 in 5 million chance of dying from it.

These great odds mean you have nothing to be afraid of, and there’s certainly no justification for continuing to trample people’s God-given liberties. Consider that according to the insurance actuaries, you’re much more likely to die from eating, walking, driving, being hit by lightning, and having a refrigerator fall on you. But have you heard medical tyrants talk lately about restricting eating, walking, and driving? No, because their “orders” aren’t about science, health, or love.

What’s more, masks have large holes compared to the small sizes of Covid and influenza viruses, which pass right through. Several studies debunk mask efficacy, with even more evidence and logic on my blog proving masks just won’t protect you.

Fortunately, this Democrat-driven statewide “mask” order is largely unenforceable. Police won’t likely enforce it, and local government’s employees are spread thin, especially in December and also because some have been fired for refusing to be injected with a substance that doesn’t protect them, but puts at risk their health and lives.

So, please, business owners and shoppers, do not comply with this renewal of dehumanizing mask tyranny. Don’t buy the lie or participate in it. Remember your humanity and the value of a human smile. Don’t drink the Kool-Aid!

On Wednesday, we should know which popular stores — especially grocery stores — will either not require masks or will honor state-recognized exemptions declared at the door. Please call SaveCalifornia.com at 916-265-5650 if you know of stores that still permit smiles.


1. Download the State of California’s updated list of exemptions to carry with you. When you walk into Walmart or Target, for example (because they’ve honored “health exemptions” in the past), if a door monitor asks you about a mask, say “I’m exempt” or “I have a health exemption” while you walk straight forward without stopping.

These six things the LORD hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.

7 encouraging trends in the fight for medical freedom

Monday, November 29, 2021, 9:35 am | Randy Thomasson
Have you asked yourself, “Can we get our country back? Is there any hope of restoring our God-given liberties and constitutional rights?” I have — and I believe the answer is yes. Because a “sleeping giant” has awoken, and a new revolution against medical tyrants has begun.

These 7 events and trends this month for the sake of medical freedom have encouraged me — for both California and our nation. I hope they’ll encourage you too:

1. Parents attempt to “fire” anti-family board member. In the west Riverside County communities of Corona and Norco, parents on November 9 launched a recall campaign aiming to oust a pro-mask, pro-jab, pro-racism (“Critical Race Theory”) school board member. The recall option should be used against all school board members who are imposing masks and who also want to force jabs and CRT upon kids. Because even qualifying for the ballot with signatures could be enough to bring about a “new policy.”

2. Pro-family school boards say “no” to mandatory “Covid vaccines”: This month, school districts in Calaveras County and Ramona in San Diego County voted to prohibit mandatory “Covid vaccines.” On November 22, “Let Them Choose” claimed 22 of 1088 school districts in California have done likewise. You can help win more victories. Take and distribute facts, and take friends (including attorneys and doctors) to a school board meeting near you.

3. A constitutional California city council declares themselves a “sanctuary city” from Covid mandates: On November 2, the city council in Oroville (in Butte County) voted 6 to 1 to not enforce “any executive orders issued by the state of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights.” This very welcome resolution in favor of medical freedom should be mimicked by every city councilmember, all of whom have raised their right hand to publicly promise to abide by the written words of the state and federal constitutions.

4. Tens of thousands of people are rejecting government “health authorities”: When healthcare workers, teachers, city and county workers, and enlisted military personnel are willing to be fired from their jobs instead of endangering their lives and health, a whole new voter bloc for medical freedom and the First Amendment is being created. Meanwhile, among younger Americans nationwide, ages 18 to 34, 54% disapprove of White House occupant Joe Biden, in part, because his higher prices and mask and jab policies are robbing them of liberty and hope. This “young” support of what’s right in God’s sight is unheard of since 1984 when President Ronald Reagan won the trust of young voters.

5. Dozens of federal court cases give us a chance of nationwide medical freedom: From the federal OSHA cases being assigned to the constitutional-majority 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, to dozens of other federal lawsuits representing healthcare workers, airline pilots, police and fire, members of the military, and all religious objectors — all this is challenging the Trump judges on the U.S. Supreme Court to respect and protect individual rights. We need 5 or 6 SCOTUS judges to at least rule in favor of religious exemptions to vaccines, and at most rule no one in America can be forced to have any injections (no involuntary medical treatment), period.

6. Evidence keeps emerging that being unvaccinated is acceptable, even preferable: Years ago, before the medical establishment sold out to Big Pharma, most doctors and epidemiologists fully acknowledged that recovering from a virus gives you lifelong immunity. This is why decades ago, wise parents often ensured their children would catch chickenpox. Now, in the United Kingdom, you’re healthier not having the “Covid vaccine,” where vaccinated people under age 60 are dying from all causes at twice the rate of the unvaccinated, with the “jab” being “the elephant in the room.” Meanwhile, in Germany, there’s been a noticeable spike in deaths among the vaccinated population, as the sad effects of the experimental biological agents begin kicking in. Couple this with even the New York Times admitting that children infected with Covid or a “variant” only exhibit “mild” symptoms (if any), thus no “emergency” justifying jabs that are risky to children.

7. The latest scamdemic out of South Africa is being exposed early: As pro-medical-freedom leaders on social media are already explaining, the latest scamdemic dubbed the “Omicron variant” (from South Africa and neighboring Botswana) that Biden & Company, along with the World Health Organization, want to shove upon all of us, is completely without substance. The chair of the South African Medical Association says the “Omicron variant” is not worth the “hype,” explaining, “the cases we are seeing are extremely mild … So are we seriously worried? No.” And get this about the four “Omicron variant” infections in Botswana: 1) This is not something a “Covid vaccine” will fix: November 25 official Government of Botswana news release: “The preliminary report revealed that all the four had been fully vaccinated for COVID-19.” 2) There’s no big problem here, so no “emergency” and no “mandates” are justified: November 26 Botswana news release: “All contacts who have so far been identified in the country, have no COVID-19 symptoms and have tested negative for COVID-19.” Sounds like much ado about nothing. But don’t put it beyond the world’s medical tyrants to try to punish Africa, which has been resisting “Covid vaccines” from the get-go. But Africans get more sunshine and outdoors activity and have less obesity than most other nations. Their natural immunity should be applauded, not disparaged.

What’s your and my takeaway from this encouraging news and perspective? We can win the war for our God-given liberties and constitutional rights. But it’s going to take time and effort with the character of sacrificial love. So please, stay in the battle. Resist government tyranny. Stand unapologetically for your moral, social, and fiscal values. Present evidence and ask questions to inquiring minds. Take action for the futures of your children and grandchildren. Invite others to join you at a protest event. Keep standing, keep supporting what’s right in God’s sight, and keep loving others with the truth!

“Our cruel and unrelenting Enemy leaves us no choice but a brave resistance, or the most abject submission; this is all we can expect – We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die: Our own Country’s Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions – The Eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, and we shall have their blessings, and praises, if happily we are the instruments of saving them from the Tyranny meditated against them. Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and shew the whole world, that a Freeman contending for Liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth.”
George Washington, commander of the Continental Army and 1st U.S. president, in his August 27, 1776 address to his army before the Battle of Long Island
