Peggy Hall | Opening up County Businesses – Know your rights

COVID-19 ‘has brought division, deception and despair’

By Michael Hernandez

NEWBURY PARK—COVID-19 “has brought division, deception, and despair,” said Peggy Hall during a Live Fireside Chat 249 held at Godspeak Calvary Chapel Tues., Dec. 15 and attended by 14 business owners and a full crowd. “I have been going up and down the State working with business owners getting them together and giving business solutions and tips for them to navigate their businesses.

“Small businesses have been my number one focus because they are the backbone of our economy. I have the right to go to any business I choose. No one can make me go to a business, nor can they forbid me from going to a business.” While Hall says that businesses, particularly restaurants, have been her primary focus, she also has been speaking to parents to leave government schools; to law enforcement officers; and addressing medical rights.

“How does one person have authority over me? On whether I can work or make a living? said Hall. “The California Emergency Service Act does not give (the governor) authority to make laws or to close down places without due process or a hearing. No governor of health officer or code enforcement officer, nor OSHA, nor the Department of Labor has any legal, moral, ethical authority to tell you how to operate a business. I educate business owners how to stay open lawfully. The Governor, the code enforcers and the health officers are skirting the law.

“Restaurants have a special place in my heart because this is where we break bread and share a meal together. This is a sacred activity especially the mom-and-pop restaurants,” said Hall who advocates that small businesses open for in-door service and without masks.

“Wearing a mask is a medical intervention,” said Hall who says she never wears a mask nor frequents any business which requires one. “When you wear a mask; you are participating in a medical experiment—a clinical trial—and you have the right of refusal in any clinical trial because of the principle of no consent.”

Peggy Hall, who brought 21 pages of research with her, says she encourages employers not to ask employees to get tested for COVID 19—which she calls a violation of employee rights. “You are not medical doctors. Your body is your property. You cannot require a COVID-19 test without compensation. According to the law, to do so is called human trafficking which is a violation of personal liberty and is a felony.”

According to Hall, shoppers need to be pro-active and call a store before going without a mask and let them know you have a medical condition that does not allow you to wear a mask. If a complaint arises, take the initiative and file a notice of discrimination and consider picketing the store and let others know the name of the store manager who refuses to service you.

“Ask the store manager what is the code of the law the requires masks? Force them to show you evidence that you have COVID-19. The burden of proof is on them. Ask them how are they upholding the 1964 Civil Rights law?  Let them know that you are going to serve them with a lawsuit for discrimination and harassment. You are going to contact the Department of Justice, the Department of Consumer Affairs, the District Attorney, Homeland Security, the Sheriff, the FBI. Let them know, that they are breaking the law by prohibiting you from their business.”
