California Governor Gavin Newsom suffered an embarrassing defeat in State Superior Court today when a judge ruled against him in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of his executive orders.
Judge Sarah Heckman ruled that Newsom’s executive No. N-67-20 was unconstitutional. That means he can no longer mandate unsolicited mail-in ballots to be sent to all registered voters and shoots down his requirement of one voting place per 10,000 residents be available from Oct 31 to Nov 2 for at least 8 hours. Unfortunately, the first part of this ruling is moot since the ballots were mailed out weeks ago.
The second part of his executive order was considered a nuisance at best, so there should be little to no impact on the election, which is tomorrow. However, the judge’s ruling removes Newsom’s ability to issue further executive orders as part of the COVID-19 state of emergency.
Two Republican lawmakers who sued the Governor celebrated on Twitter:
The Judge has ruled in our case against Gavin Newsom. We won. The Judge found good cause to issue a permanent injunction restraining the Governor from issuing further unconstitutional orders.

The Governor had two Executive Orders. The first one was about mailing ballots to all voters. The second (the one we challenged in Court) was more broadly about the election process. More importantly, this lawsuit is about separation of powers.

Republicans have acknowledged a need for action from Sacramento regarding the coronavirus, but they have demanded that things be handled properly through the state legislature rather than from executive fiat. This ruling will make it impossible for the Governor to impose more restrictions without consent of the legislature. This ruling does not affect the state’s current locked down status.
Separation of powers is one of the most important components of a constitutional republic. Gavin Newsom has played his hands as if he’s above the California and U.S. constitutions. Today’s ruling reminds him he is not.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.

The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time.
