Newsom had until September 30 to sign the bill, which many expected he did. And now begins the aggressive work of the Golden State legislature who are dead-set in ridding the state of all physicians who oppose face masks and express skepticism about Fauci Flu shot "vaccines."
"Assembly Bill 2098 [empowers] the Medical Board of California to go after the licenses of physicians who disseminate 'misinformation' or 'disinformation' regarding Covid-19," reports civil rights attorney Laura Powell, writing for Great Game India.
"The bill in its latest iteration defines misinformation as 'false information that is contradicted by contemporary scientific consensus contrary to the standard of care.' The inscrutability of this definition lies at the core of the bill's opponents' concerns."
Authored by Assemblymember Evan Low, AB 2098 is the worst thing that could have happened for medical freedom in California, which is fast becoming the nation's most medically oppressive state. (Related: Some California doctors tried but failed to push back against AB 2098.)
It is important to note that AB 2098 only had one hearing, which took place on June 26. Lasting just over an hour, that hearing revealed that nobody seems to know exactly how the bill will be enforced, or even what its various terminology means in practical terms.
Some argued that only "bad doctors" would be targeted (whatever that means), while others warned that presumably any doctor who fails to repeat and dispense verbatim all approved guidelines for covid will now be on the chopping block.
"No clear scientific consensus exists with respect to this novel virus, and even if it did, it may be proven incorrect later," Powell notes. "Without clear guidance regarding what would constitute 'misinformation,' physicians can only guess if they risk losing their licenses for expressing their good-faith disagreements with positions of public health officials."
"Even if in practice, the Medical Board only applied the law to speech that the First Amendment does not protect, the law's vagueness would render it unconstitutional, because it would tend to cause doctors to censor themselves."
It is precisely the aforementioned free speech violations that need to be the subject of lawsuits against AB 2098. Time is of the essence to deconstruct this abominable monstrosity, which is certain to be used as a weapon against practitioners who refuse to promote the status quo.
The California Medical Association is behind AB 2098, as is the taxpayer-funded lobbying group County Health Executives Association of California.
Numerous members of the Medical Board of California (MBC) are confused about how AB 2098 will be applied in real life. MBC President Kristina Lawson, an attorney who aggressively pushed for the bill's passage, says she knows the answers but is refusing to share them except in private.
"Assembly Bill 2098 was not the brainchild of Assembly member Low or any other California lawmakers," warns Powell. "It's part of an effort to enact similar policies around the country, sparked in large part by a declaration from the Federation of State Medical Boards in July 2021."
"California is often described as a bellwether: 'As California goes, so goes the nation.' That saying rings especially true with respect to Assembly Bill 2098, given that this is a test case for a national movement and that Governor Gavin Newsom has obvious presidential aspirations."
