Judge Andrew Napolitano: Coronavirus fear lets government assault our freedom in violation of Constitution

He was wrong on the impeachment,but he is right on this. These shutdown orders are unconstitutional. Mayors and governors are issuing a boiler plate order that seems to always contain the phrase no gatherings more than 10 people. This is martial law under false pretenses.

“The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times and under all circumstances." – Ex parte Milligan, U.S. Supreme Court (1866)

During the Civil War, when President Abraham Lincoln thought it expedient to silence those in the Northern states who challenged his wartime decisions by incarcerating them in military prisons in the name of public safety, he was rebuked by a unanimous Supreme Court.

The essence of the rebuke is that no matter the state of difficulties – whether war or pestilence – the Constitution protects our natural rights, and its provisions are to be upheld when they pinch as well as when they comfort.
