Freedom Gone: State Governors Using Police to Confront or Arrest Quarantine Breakers

Several state governors have pledged to start sending police to after people who dare to leave their homes during the coronavirus quarantine.

If you thought you lived in a free country, several state governors have pledged to start sending police to after people who dare to leave their homes during the coronavirus quarantine.

The governors of states including Illinois, New York, and Pennsylvania have warned citizens that if they dare break state quarantine orders, they will be confronted or even arrested.

It is probably no surprise that the loudest governors are Democrats.

In Pennsylvania, Gov. Tom Wolf insisted that he is prepared to sic the police on those thinking they have freedom in his state.

“We will use the state police to enforce the rules we put into place,” he said according to ABC 27.

Pennsylvania is not alone. According to the New York Post, police in New York City are being given the green light to arrest people who dare to break New York City’s orders to self-quarantine.

Gov. Cuomo’s office also warned people that police will be empowered to approach people to force them to observe the state’s “social distancing” orders.

On Friday, the morbidly obese Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker also issued a state-wide self-quarantine order. Police there have been given greater powers to confront people going about their daily lives.

The City of Chicago insisted that disobeying the quarantine orders could result in serious legal action.

CPD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told ABC that CPD officers have been told “that certain crimes can be handled via citation and misdemeanor summons as opposed to physical arrest.”

On the other hand, police across the nation are also putting a halt to arresting actual criminals. Police departments in Fort Worth, Texas, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for instance, have both stopped arrest “low-level” criminals.

So, to put a fine point on this, police across the nation are putting an end to arresting actual criminals and shifting instead to arresting or persecuting normal Americans who dare to break some government’s overwrought orders to self-quarantine.

Do we still live in America?

#BillIClintonisapedo Trends on Twitter after News of His Visits to Epstein’s Pedo Island Breaks

Last week, documents leaked showing that the FBI had known for years of Bill Clinton’s trips to Jeffrey Epstein’s “Pedophile Island” retreat where Epstein commonly held orgies where he gave under-aged children as gifts to his rich and powerful friends.

The documents were released late on Thursday and includes records of a 2011 meeting between Virginia Giuffre and her lawyers where she talked about the powerful people surrounding Epstein — including Bill Clinton — who she said visited Epstein’s island or flew on his “Lolita Express” plane trips.

But as the news gained a wider audience, it quickly spawned the Twitter hashtag “#BillIClintonisapedo.”

But despite the fact that the hashtag was seeing massive numbers of tweets, Twitter still shadowbaned it… naturally:

Report: Prosecutor Who Charged McCloskeys Busted For Not Reporting Trips As Required By Law

Report: Prosecutor Who Charged McCloskeys Busted For Not Reporting Trips As Required By Law

A new investigation alleges that St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who decided to charge Mark and Patricia McCloskey with felony unlawful use of a weapon when they defended their home from protesters, did not disclose trips she took as required by law.

“Sources tell News 4 that some of the trips were paid for in full, or in part, by an organization called Fair and Just Prosecution, a group that professes to support progressive prosecutors,” KMOV reported. “The organization has repeatedly applauded many of Gardner’s actions, including the charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey for brandishing guns in the Central West End last month.”

Kim Gardner’s office released the following statement declaring that she “refuses to apologize” for her actions and calls reports on her trips with the progressive group a “veiled attempt to disparage her:”

Since shortly after her election, Circuit Attorney Gardner has been an active member in Fair and Just Prosecution’s network of progressive prosecutors. She was invited to participate because of her beliefs, values, and goals. Those goals are in line with FJP’s priorities and the same as policies the Circuit Attorney has promised to deliver for St. Louis since day one.

The suggestion that there is any quid pro quo involved here is patently absurd. By working with FJP, she has access to a network of prosecutors who are also implementing change in their communities across the country, prosecutors who are working to create a fairer, more equitable justice system and move beyond the failed policies of the past that created our mass incarceration crisis. Ms. Gardner has been able to share ideas and strategies, learn new approaches, and benefit from the experience and expertise of others. Her work with FJP has benefitted the office and, by extension, the people of St. Louis.

Circuit Attorney Gardner refuses to apologize for seeking reasonable opportunities to further her knowledge and access prosecutors from throughout the nation for best practice. The suggestion that she would be persuaded to follow an alternative that is not focused on addressing the root causes of crime for a few plane tickets and hotel rooms is insulting.

The Circuit Attorney is confident that the public will see through this veiled attempt to disparage her and her efforts to continue to change our criminal justice system to be more just and fair.

Navy Vet Raises Over $3 Million In Bid To Take Rep. Maxine Waters’ Seat

Republican congressional candidate and Navy veteran Joe E. Collins speaks out on why he’s running against the longtime Democrat incumbent in California.

Transcript:

EARHARDT: “The pandemic is taking a devastating toll on black-owned businesses here in America. A new study showing 41 percent have permanently closed due to COVID-19. Compare that to 17 percent of white-owned businesses. It’s a problem our next guest, a Navy veteran, is well aware of as he takes on a new mission to serve in Congress and he’s looking to unseat the Democrat congresswoman Maxine Waters for California’s 43rd congressional district. That Navy veteran and GOP congressional candidate is Joe Collins and he joins us now. Good morning to you, Joe.”

COLLINS: “Good morning, how are you?”

EARHARDT: “Good morning. We did ask Maxine to join us, too, and we haven’t heard back from her. But we wanted to — first, your reaction on that? Unfortunately, so many black businesses have closed because of COVID permanently.”

COLLINS: “Yes. Yes, this is true, and it’s because of leaders like — or so-called leaders like Maxine Waters. You would think that when you are a black leader in a black community, your prime responsibility is to ensure that the people that are in your district have what they need in order to survive during times like COVID-19, but unfortunately, that has not been the case. We have tons of black-owned businesses here in Los Angeles that has not been able to receive any type of benefits, not from the state, not from the city or from the federal government, and part of the reason is — or the majority the reason is because of Maxine Waters.”

EARHARDT: “So why are you — why are you running as a Republican, first of all, and what do you want to say to the voters out there in your district that could — could go to the polls and vote for you?”

COLLINS: “Well, the reason why I am a Republican is because whenever I joined the Navy back in 2004, my mentors and my leaders in the military said that you pick your party based on the values that — that align with you and you vote for people based on the values that align with you. And so when you look at the history the Republican Party and you talk about the things that the Republican Party have been able to offer, such as the, you know, the fight for — to end slavery, or the fight to remove big government from intrusion of your life, the fight for, you know, to to keep your gun rights and things of this nature, you know, these are things that resonate with me, especially being a U. S. Navy veteran. And the reason why I’m running against Maxine Waters is because I am — grew up in South Central Los Angeles and I think that, you know, coming back home after 13 1/2 of service, seeing things are considerably worse, especially the homeless pandemic, the lack of quality jobs or education being among dead last in the country, the prime issue here is the person who has the most influence and that person is Maxine Waters. And so me being a resident of South Los Angeles, I think that, you know, we as young people have to step up and start taking roles in our community, leadership roles, and start removing aged politicians from office so we can start to move forward productively.”

EARHARDT: “I know that she has a lot of name recognition, especially after she was, you know, screaming impeach, impeach this president. You raised $3.1 million. How did you do that?”

COLLINS: “Well, we’ve been very blessed to have a lot of great supporters from across the United States, especially in California, in our district. People want to see Maxine Waters gone. I will tell you, she’s lost a lot of trust, especially with ‘Impeach 45’. When you look at the accomplishments that she’s had over the over the years, and it’s been very, very few — I mean, she said she was going to get the president out of the White House and she absolutely failed on that issue as well.”

EARHARDT: “Joe, sorry to cut you off, but we are running out of time. We wish you all the best. Thank you so much for coming on. And once again, we did reach out to your opponent Maxine Waters and we have not heard back. We would like to have her on the show, too. God bless you, Joe.”

Sweet: Rep. Louie Gohmert Introduces Call to Rename Democrat Party Over its History of Racism

A House Resolution called on the Democrat Party change its name due to its long, disgusting history of racism, violence, and hate.

Published

on

On Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R, TX) introduced a House Resolution demanding that the Democrat Party change its name due to its long, disgusting history of racism, violence, and hate, not to mention its connection to the Confederacy.

“That is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur,” Gohmert added.

Gohmert pointed out that the so-called leftist cancel culture should just as properly work against the Democrat Party, too.

“Whereas on June 18, 2020, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ordered the removal from the Capitol portraits of four previous Speakers of the House who served in the Confederacy saying that these portraits ‘set back our nation’s work to confront and combat bigotry,'” Gohmert said as he introduced the resolution. “The men depicted in the portraits were Democrat Robert M.T. Hunter, Democrat Howell Cobb, Democrat James L. Orr, and Democrat Charles F. Crisp.”

“Resolved, that the Speaker of the House of Representatives shall remove any item that named symbolizes or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy, from any area within the House wing of the Capitol or any House office building, and shall donate such item or symbol to the Library of Congress,” Gohmert continued.

“And two, that any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery of the Confederacy shall either change its name or be barred from participation in the House of Representatives,” he concluded. “With that, I would yield back.”

In a statement about his pointed resolution, Gohmert accused the Democrat Party of being “filled with racism.”

As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred. Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan.

As the country watches violent leftists burn our cities, tear down our statues and call upon every school, military base and city street to be renamed, it is important to note that past atrocities these radicals claim to be so violently offensive were largely committed by members in good standing of the Democratic Party. Whether it be supporting the most vile forms of racism or actively working against Civil Rights legislation, Democrats in this country perpetuated these abhorrent forms of discrimination and violence practically since their party’s inception.

To avoid triggering innocent bystanders by the racist past of the Democratic Party, I would suggest they change their name. That is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur

Exactly right. And why not?

It is what the left is doing to everyone else.
