Tom Manzo: Gov. Newsom Should Suspend PAGA Lawsuits Amid COVID-19 Crisis – “While these businesses face one of the most difficult periods of economic upheaval in California’s history, many can now add an expensive legal battle to their list of woes.” New weapons for lawyer income generation!

“For those who don’t know, PAGA allows a disgruntled employee and his lawyer to step into the shoes of the attorney general to enforce labor law violations. Most PAGA violations equate to a typo on a pay stub or a late employee lunch break. However, the resulting lawsuit can leave businesses owing hundreds of thousands of dollars in settlement and legal fees. Rather than going to the employee, most of this money ends up in the pocket of the trial attorney bringing the case.

David Horowitz: Trump Derangement Pandemic – “More than the virus threatens us.”

“For anyone not in thrall to anti-Trump obsessions, the spectacle of Trump hatred is mystifying, even unfathomable. It’s not that the criticisms of Trump are harsh – that is the currency of democratic politics. The problem is that they are not merely harsh but veer on the lunatic until communication with those who voice them seems impossible. It is why the national conversation and a semblance of national unity in the face of threats seem almost hopeless.

How does one engage a mentality that claims Trump has no redeeming qualities but that historical monsters like Stalin probably do? The New York Times interviewer didn’t even notice, let alone challenge this absurdity.

As for Trump, he has reached out to constituencies like Hispanics and African Americans who did not flock to support him in 2016, and he has made it clear over and over that he is a president for all Americans. In assembling his medical team to fight the virus, Trump has flanked himself with two Democrats – Drs. Fauci and Birx – and an African American surgeon general. But that’s probably why he is so hated by the Left: he has taken America back to its roots and thwarted their desires to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” into a socialist state – in the words and aspirations of Barack Obama.

James Mullin: Why they hate America, Western Civilization and God – “I’ve long wondered why so many family and friends fall into this category.”

“Where is this phenomenon the strongest? It is, of course, in the “new money” suburbs of America, where fitting in, social climbing, and dying to be relevant is the new religion. These are people who don’t believe what their parents believed because they secretly (or openly) loathed the lower middle-class backgrounds of those parents, and that includes of course everything about those backgrounds.

So, if you feel alienated in your extended family or social circle, just be aware that you are experiencing the same cliquishness that you so loved in grade-school and middle-school. And like then, it’s rooted not in the realm of ideas and concepts, but in the lowest psychological and social impulses of the human spirit.

Matt Margolis: Fauci Destroys Journalist for Asking if He’s ‘Doing This Voluntarily’ and for Accusing Trump of Not Listening to Health Experts – “On CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, Dr. Fauci made comments that were wildly distorted by the media.” … “Bottom line: Dr. Fauci confirmed that President Trump took the advice of health experts every time. Even Dr. Fauci has had enough of the biased media.”

Patricia McCarthy: Nancy Pelosi and her Democrats’ unending shame – “There are some truly terrible people in Congress; there always have been some throughout American history. But as the country navigates the course of this mis-modeled and over-hyped COVID-19 pandemic, Nancy Pelosi stands out as a genuine enemy of America. She loathes the president so much she has relinquished any semblance of ethics and her own personal character.”

Mike Thau: Literally no one has any idea how many people COVID-19 has killed – “if you want to understand a Chinese virus, you better start listening to a Chinese philosopher: As Confucius said, “The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their proper names.” … And, it’s time everyone wised up about those daily COVID-19 fatality reports. They don’t represent the number of people it’s killed. They represent the number of death certificates listing it as a cause. And those two things are most definitely NOT the same.”
