To enforce the COVID-19 shutdowns, the mayor announced a program to send city workers and volunteers, dubbed “business ambassadors,” to check on defiant businesses and urge them to close down voluntarily.
I cannot recall the exact moment it went from feeling like the government was trying to help us to feeling like we were living under Nazi-like oppression, but whenever it was, for many parts of the United States, it is absolutely here. In Liberal Los Angeles in California, life is more and more beginning to feel like living under occupation than in the land of endless summer.
We all knew that Civil War was coming, the Democrats have been broadcasting that for quite some time now, but as Bill Gates is fond of saying, it has come in the form of microbes, not missiles. No disrespect to survivors of the Nazi Holocaust, but COVID-19 is rapidly becoming the ‘yellow star‘ of our time, and is being used to change and enslave us in ways previously thought impossible. For decades now, the trends that began in California eventually made their way to the rest of the country as well, is this what life is going to be like where you live?
Los Angeles to shut off water, power of nonessential businesses that refuse to close amid COVID-19 coronavirus orders
FROM FOX NEWS: Los Angeles authorities could shut down water and power to nonessential businesses that refuse to close amid the coronavirus outbreak there, according to local reports.
“We won’t tolerate the selfish behavior of a few who unnecessarily put our community at risk,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a press release on his website. He also said his “Safer at Home” emergency shelter-in-place order would be strictly enforced.
The order requires LA residents to stay at home except for in a number of situations, including to get food, health or medical necessities — as well as to care for children or adult relatives, friends and people with disabilities, according to the mayor’s office.
Let me be clear: it is unacceptable for non-essential businesses to continue their operations as normal.

Nonessential businesses include bars, restaurants, movie theaters, bowling alleys, salons and gyms. But nonessential businesses that remain open despite the order are “irresponsible and selfish,” Garcetti said during his daily press briefing on Tuesday, according to KTLA.

To enforce the shutdowns, the mayor announced a program to send city workers and volunteers, dubbed “business ambassadors,” to check on defiant businesses and urge them to close down voluntarily. If they don’t, the ambassadors will report the situation to prosecutors and police, according to the mayor’s website, which also provided a link for the general public to report noncompliance.
Businesses that ignore warnings from authorities could then have their utilities cut off, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“In the strongest possible terms, I urge that Angelenos adhere to the ‘Safer at Home’ order, and nonessential businesses shut their doors,” City Attorney Mike Feuer said in a press release from the mayor’s office.
Los Angeles County has seen at least 13 deaths and 799 cases of coronavirus, health authorities there said Wednesday. That’s out of at least 2,660 cases and 58 deaths reported across California.
Restrictions on travel and business aimed at stifling the spread of coronavirus have also choked the economy, with Gov. Gavin Newsom revealing Wednesday that more than 1 million Californians have filed unemployment claims since March 13. READ MORE

All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,115+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,800 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
