Preventing Liberty from Becoming a Coronavirus Fatality | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Preventing Liberty from Becoming a Coronavirus Fatality

Governments at all levels have taken ever more extreme (even outrageous) actions in an effort to stem the outbreak. The governors of New York, California, and other states have issued orders closing most private businesses and requiring residents not engaged in “essential” activities to remain in their homes. Nevada’s governor greatly restricted doctors from prescribing an anti-malaria drug that Trump administration experts suggested held promise for treating coronavirus, because in the governor’s opinion, such prescriptions might lead to hoarding. U.S. Justice Department officials secretly asked Congress to give the executive branch the authority to seek orders from federal judges to detain indefinitely any individual during the current emergency or any future one.

Although appalling, such attempted eviscerations of constitutional liberties should not be surprising. Governments invariably exploit crises to expand their powers—often to a dangerous degree. That certainly has been the track record in the United States throughout our history. Worse, a significant residue of expanded powers always persists after the crisis recedes and life supposedly returns to normal.

More recently, the policy responses to the 9-11 terrorist attacks included that 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF), ostensibly to wage war against Al Qaida and its allies. However, the AUMF became a veritable blank check for presidents to wage wars anytime, anywhere, for any reasons those presidents deemed appropriate. Domestically, the response to 9-11 included the so-called Patriot Act and its legendary erosions of the 4th Amendment’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures, as well as the weakening of other substantive and due process rights guaranteed in the Constitution. That measure was a crucial building block in the growth of the current pervasive surveillance state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There will be no "return to normal", because there cannot, logically be; things will have changed forever, and governments are not going to let go of those strictures against their citizens which have been adapted during this pandemic without a massive fight; and the Foggy Bottomites in DC, would love nothing better than some kind of an attempted organized armed rebellion, as a "justification" for putting it down "with extreme prejudice".

Think " Tiananmen Square in Beijing" on Steroids, and you will be able, at that point, to pretty clearly consider what the US government will be willing to do to keep social and economic constraints from snapping, although they may well be incapable of making that happen.

Think "slave labor wages" (if there are wages, for a time); forced work to keep the society going; forced conscription for the "wars du juor" which may be planned, and executed, very soon to "shore up" the President's pre-elections chances, and food rations which would probably make a maggot gag.

The most important things you can do right now, for you and the people you love, is get out there, and do a little bit of prepping from several "big box" stores, so the buying you do does not appear to be "hoarding", but just reasonably large amounts for a big family.

Then find a way to hide it, so that no one can take it from you; because in an exercise of extreme panic, the federal Government may well attempt to take it from you, to "spread the wealth" to the Covidiots who chose NOT to prep, because they had been assured, that the extreme underclass in this country would always be protected, as long they went along with the government agendas and propaganda, and did not riot.

Even when the self-isolation ends, be careful about gathering with large crowds; the government will be very keen on identifying those individuals who publicly named and shamed the government for what they felt was a very slow, and sporadic, response to Covid 19.

Notice how President Trump has declared "war" on this illness?!?

Please remember; the invocation of such language, enables him to have thrown the Espionage Act against people who criticised his administration's response to it, just as he did against Chelsea Manning, who nearly successfully committed suicide in her Federal Prison cell, and was released on the 12th of this month.
