Virginia Ramps Up The Tyranny: Curfews, Mask Mandates, Gatherings Limited

As Christmas approaches, Virginia governor Ralph Northam imposes tyrannical edicts to try to keep people under the controlling boot of the state. In addition to tougher mask mandates and curfews, Northam has limited gatherings to ten people.

“New daily case numbers are higher than they have been at any previous point in the pandemic, and while the trends in Virginia are better than most of the country, we are taking action now to slow the spread of this virus before our hospitals get overwhelmed,” Northam said according to RT. 

The curfew will go into effect on December 14 and is scheduled to run through at least the end of January. Northam told reporters on Thursday that everyone other than people traveling to and from work should abide by the curfew. He also urged Virginians to stay home at other times of day unless they must go out.

Northam expanded the state’s mask mandate to include outdoor public spaces where people are within six feet of each other. He also reduced the capacity limit on social gatherings to 10 people – just in time for Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations – and said restaurants will have to stop liquor sales by 10pm and close by midnight. –RT

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is also putting the boots on the necks of the public and restricting their freedom. Wold has tightened his Covid-19 restrictions, banning indoor dining and closing theaters, casinos, and gyms. Its weekly average of nearly 10,000 cases is up 51 percent from late November. Wolf, who revealed on Wednesday that he had tested positive for the virus, said the surge in infections necessitated tighter restrictions.“We all hoped that it would not come to this,” Wolf said. “The current state of the surge in Pennsylvania will not allow us to wait.”

They are losing control of the public, and that’s likely why there’s a rush to inject people with whatever it is that’s in this vaccine.

After Brainwashing People For Decades, MSM and Governments Are Losing Control of People

Wake up, before it’s too late.  Stay alert and stay prepared.  Many states are ramping up lockdowns right before the magical vaccine is put into the veins of the public.  The more they can panic you, the better chance they have of you lining up to take this thing willingly.

This Is NOT A Joke: LA Mayor Bans Most Walking

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has issued an order for residents to stay at home. With that, comes a ban on the use of public transportation, driving, and most forms of walking. Yes, a ruler thinks he has the moral authority to tell people they cannot walk.

Does anyone still believe this is the “land of free?” If you do, you’re delusional. As Christmas approaches, Mayor Garcetti has decided that the coronavirus (which is a massive hoax) is doing causing needless suffering and death.

“We must minimize contact with others as much as possible,” Garcetti wrote in his order dated December 2. The steps were needed to avoid risking “needless suffering and death,” he said.

The order, which supersedes one from June, prohibits public and private gatherings of people from more than one household and states that all businesses in the city that require people to work on location must stop operations. Walking, driving, travel on public transport, bikes, motorcycles, and scooters are prohibited, other than for those undertaking essential activities. -Fortune

The term tyrant is not harsh enough for Garcetti.

There are several exemptions, including for faith-based outdoor services and the homeless. Others that can continue to operate include supermarkets, grocery stores, and health-care operations, but that doesn’t cover gyms and similar facilities. Still, activities such as golf, tennis, and pickleball are permitted, according to the order. Just don’t go for a walk with your dog…yes, this is real.

Additional orders force visitors to L.A. to complete forms stating they know and will comply with California’s demands to be a slave. Anyone over the age of 16 traveling into L.A. must complete an online form upon arrival to acknowledge they’ve read and understood a California travel advisory. Failure to submit the form is punishable by a fine of up to $500.

After This New Wave Of Lockdowns, Most People Will Accept Any “Solution” Because They Will Be So Desperate

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog.

When people become desperate enough, those in power can get most of them to do just about anything.  The first wave of lockdowns knocked us into the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, it sent suicide rates soaring all over the globe, and it plunged millions upon millions of ordinary citizens into a deep state of despair.  Now another wave of lockdowns is being instituted all over the planet, and this is going to perfectly set the stage for the “solutions” that the elite plan to offer all of us in 2021.

It has been said that if you want people to be willing to accept a solution, first you have to make them realize that they have a problem.

And once this “dark winter” finally ends, almost everybody will be absolutely desperate to return to their “normal” lives.

With each passing day, more extremely harsh restrictions are being imposed.  For example, a brand new “stay at home order” was just issued in Los Angeles County

All public and private gatherings with anyone outside a single household are now banned in Los Angeles County, as most of the country grapples with an unprecedented surge of Covid-19.

The ban will last three weeks, starting Monday and ending December 20.

It would be nice if the lockdown actually does get lifted before the end of the year, but for at least the next three weeks all 10 million people living in L.A. County will be forced “to stay home as much as possible”

All 10 million residents are asked to stay home as much as possible and wear face masks when outside — even when exercising at the beach and parks, said the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, which issued the order last week.

On top of that, California Governor Gavin Newsom is warning that he may soon impose “much more dramatic, arguably drastic” restrictions for the entire state…

California Gov Gavin Newsom just warned that more drastic steps could be taken to contain the virus after the state reported another 15k+ new cases yesterday. The Golden State could be facing “much more dramatic, arguably drastic” measures to contain the spread of the virus. The state also broke its record for hospitalized patients yesterday: The state reported 7,415 coronavirus hospitalizations, with more than 1,700 of those patients in ICUs. The number of hospitalizations broke the state’s previous record of 7,170 in July.

Unfortunately, we are witnessing similar craziness all over the nation.  In New Mexico, the new restrictions that were just instituted created so much panic that people were soon waiting for hours just to get into a supermarket to shop for food…

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) has put immense pressure on businesses with her “abrupt” lockdown order – forcing “nonessential” businesses to close and creating what has been dubbed “modern breadlines” — with people waiting 2-4 hours to enter essential retailers, former GOP Senate candidate Elisa Martinez explained during an appearance on Breitbart News Saturday.

After seeing what the first round of lockdowns did to our nation, why would these politicians want to do it again?

More than 70 million Americans have filed unemployment claims so far in 2020, more than 40 million could be facing eviction in 2021, and there has been a dramatic spike in suicides during this pandemic.

When a 90-year-old woman named Nancy Russell found out that another lockdown was happening in her area, she decided to opt for assisted suicide

According to CTV News, a 90-year-old woman living in Toronto took her own life via medically assisted suicide, the choice made in large part due to the second surge of coronavirus cases and a looming period of increased restrictions.

As I keep reminding my readers, there is always hope if you look at the bigger picture and suicide is never the answer to anything.

Unfortunately, most people are not getting a message of hope from the mainstream media, and Russell decided that the months ahead were going to be too bleak in her nursing home for her to be able to handle…

Residents eat meals in their rooms, have activities and social gatherings cancelled, family visits curtailed or eliminated. Sometimes they are in isolation in their small rooms for days. These measures, aimed at saving lives, can sometimes be detrimental enough to the overall health of residents that they find themselves looking into other options.

Just as we are hitting a low point with this pandemic, authorities all over the globe are announcing that vaccines will soon be available.

In fact, it is being reported that as many as ten different vaccines could be available by the middle of 2021…

Ten COVID-19 vaccines could be available by the middle of next year if they win regulatory approval, but their inventors need patent protection, the head of the global pharmaceutical industry group said on Friday.

As soon as the public can get them, it is inevitable that millions upon millions of people will rush out to get their shots so that they can return to their “normal” lives.

But what they aren’t telling you is that these new vaccines are entirely different from vaccines that you may have gotten previously.

These new mRNA vaccines will actually “hijack” your cells if you take them…

When Moderna was just finishing its Phase I trial, The Independent wrote about the vaccine and described it this way: “It uses a sequence of genetic RNA material produced in a lab that, when injected into your body, must invade your cells and hijack your cells’ protein-making machinery called ribosomes to produce the viral components that subsequently train your immune system to fight the virus.”

“In this case, Moderna’s mRNA-1273 is programmed to make your cells produce the coronavirus’ infamous coronavirus spike protein that gives the virus its crown-like appearance (corona is crown in Latin) for which it is named,” wrote The Independent.

Under normal circumstances, very few people would sign up to have their cells “hijacked”, but at this point, millions upon millions of people will be so desperate for a “solution” that they will take a vaccine no matter what the long-term consequences might be.

And if you don’t take one of the vaccines, you may soon find that you aren’t able to fly internationally

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced this week it is in the final phase of development for what it hopes will be universally accepted documentation that in turn could boost confidence among wary travelers.

The digital health pass would include a passenger’s testing and vaccine information and would manage and verify information among governments, airlines, laboratories and travelers.

If these new “digital vaccine passports” are implemented for international travel, it is probably just a matter of time before they are required for domestic travel as well.

Of course there are lots of people out there that are trying to sound the alarm about all of this, but UN communications director Melissa Fleming says that her organization has already recruited an army of “110,000 information volunteers” to combat the spread of “misinformation”…

Fleming told the World Economic Forum that #PledgetoPause and Verified have “recruited 110,000 information volunteers” thus far. She said “we equip these information volunteers with the kind of knowledge about how misinformation spreads and ask them to serve as kind of ‘digital first-responders’.” Fleming has stated elsewhere that the UN has “reached out to Member States, UN media partners, celebrity supporters” and “businesses” “to help us disseminate to the millions we will need to reach” with the campaign.

They want to control what you think as they lead you into a dystopian future that will ultimately turn into a complete and utter nightmare.

The truth is that none of us will be going back to our “normal lives” ever again.

But the elite will continue to hold that carrot out there in order to get you to do what they want, and millions upon millions of people will fall for it.

California Coronavirus dictatorial disobey distribution Draconian Gavin newsome Headline News house arrest Intelwars LIES lockdown Medical Tyranny restrictions rigged numbers state statistically irrelevant Stay-at-home orders tyrants Vaccination Vaccine

Gavin Newsome Ready To LOCKDOWN California AGAIN

California’s head tyrant, Gavin Newsome is ready to lock down the entire state once again. The latest rigged and fake coronavirus case numbers show that a post-Thanksgiving coronavirus spike is coming, which they probably already planned in advance, considering Newsome says stay-at-home orders may be needed.

If current trends continue, California will need to take what Newsom described as dramatic, drastic action, including a potential stay-at-home order for areas with concerning hospitalizations and ICU capacity, according to LAist. At this point, draconian and tyrannical measures are already in place in 51 of the state’s 58 counties. Those are in the highest, most restrictive, most dictatorial “purple” tier. There are 6 counties in red, 1 in orange, and none in yellow.

The state of California also anticipates another large increase in cases within the next 1-2 weeks, due to Thanksgiving activities and gatherings, Newsom said. See how that works? You disobey the tyrants, they will blame it on your refusal to be enslaved and try with everything they have to continue to make you compliant.

Remember, Newsome was the dictator that said you must wear a mask in between bites of food:

CA Governor Says “Wear Masks Between Bites” When Eating

California is also hoping to start mass vaccination for a statistically irrelevant virus in mid-December. The state anticipates getting approximately 327,000 doses in mid-December from Pfizer, Newsom said. The second doses will likely follow within three weeks, and more vaccine is expected soon from Moderna, as well as other vaccines in late-stage trials to come.

Recommendations are being made this week for the “Phase 1a” vaccine distribution plan, focusing on certain health care professionals, with that plan set to be released later this week, Newsom said.

Church Coronavirus COVID-19 Donald Trump Intelwars Stay-at-home orders

President Trump orders states to allow church services immediately: ‘If they don’t do it, I will override the governors’

President Donald Trump called a news conference on short notice Friday to announce that churches and other places of worship would be considered essential services under federal guidelines, and governors should allow them to reopen and operate immediately.

After legal challenges in several states about statewide stay-at-home orders prohibiting or severely limiting the ability for churches to meet, Trump said any governor that resists his order to lift restrictions on worship gatherings will have to deal directly with him. His order includes synagogues, mosques, and any other house of worship.

“The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now,” Trump said. “For this weekend. If they don’t do it, I will override the governors. In America, we need more prayer, not less.”

The president pointed out some of the other services that have been deemed “essential” by governments.

“Some governors have deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential,” the president said. “But have left out houses of worship. That’s not right.

Pastors have been cited or arrested for defying coronavirus lockdown orders by holding in-person services with gatherings larger than the pandemic rules allow. The Department of Justice has been supportive of churches in some of these instances, viewing the limitations on religious gatherings as a violation of the First Amendment.

At the same time, some churches have had negative outcomes from gathering during the pandemic. A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention highlighted an Arkansas church where 92 people attended church events in one weekend, leading to 35 COVID-19 infections and three deaths.

As a result, the CDC warns faith organizations to be aware of the risk of high transmission rates if they choose to begin gathering in-person. Dr. Deborah Birx, a member of the White House coronavirus response task force, suggested that churches in areas with high infection rates may want to wait before reopening, regardless of Trump’s order.

Business closures COVID-19 Intelwars social distancing Stay-at-home orders

Many Americans say enough is enough with social distancing and business closures, poll says

A new study reported Thursday by Bloomberg says that Americans are losing their commitment to social distancing among the COVID-19 pandemic.

An associated poll, which relied on data from analytics company Unacast, also finds a decidedly partisan split on Americans’ views on keeping the country under lockdown measures.

What are the details?

Data from Unacast, Bloomberg reports, details many Americans’ frustration at business closures.

“People in the U.S. moved around 41% less in April than they normally would,” Bloomberg reports, pointing out that the only noticeable increase in movement was during the business week, suggesting that people were leaving their homes to go to work.

As for weekends these days, the commitment to social distancing seems to be eroding.

A national survey from Surgo Foundation finds that a “partisan split” has emerged over the states reopening amid the outbreak. The survey says that approximately 50% of polled Republicans said they were in favor of maintaining the status quo of keeping lockdown measures in place, all while continuing to keep nonessential businesses closed. Nearly all of Democrats polled, however, say that they are in favor of continuing extreme lockdown measures and do not want any nonessential businesses to reopen during the pandemic.

The poll, which was conducted between April 27 and May 4, finds that 92% of Democrats polled say the U.S. should remain under lockdown. Just 49% of Republicans agreed.

Bloomberg writes, “In states with the greatest decrease in average distance traveled per day, confirmed COVID-19 cases were more likely to stabilize or decline when plotted on a two-week lag, the maximum incubation period of the virus. New York, one of the earliest states hit, reduced its travel more than most other states and saw its daily case rate drop.”

C&c coffee Colorado coffee shop COVID-19 Intelwars Stay-at-home orders

Colorado restaurant illegally reopens. Restaurant packs in hundreds of customers — with no social distancing in sight.

A Castle Rock, Colorado, restaurant opened its doors on Sunday to celebrate Mother’s Day despite a statewide public order mandating the closure of such public places.

The company’s owner said that she would “go out of business” if she didn’t do something.

What are the details?

C&C Coffee and Kitchen drew hundreds of customers on Mother’s Day, and, according to The Denver Post, none of those customers were utilizing social distancing measures.

The line was long enough that it formed out the door and spilled into the street.

Colorado’s current public health order restricts restaurants across the state to only takeout and delivery services.

One customer told the outlet that he couldn’t believe his eyes when he spotted the crowd.

“It was unbelievable,” Nick Whitehill said, pointing out that very few people in the restaurant — employees included — were even wearing masks.

“I wasn’t even going to eat the food even if I had gotten it,” he added. “I walked in, took the picture and turned right around.” He also told the outlet that he filed a complaint with the local public health department.

Did lawmakers respond?

In a statement, Gov. Jared Polis said that the restaurant’s move was irresponsible.

“These restaurants are not only breaking the law, they are endangering the lives of their staff, customers, and community,” the Democratic governor said through deputy press secretary Shelby Wieman. “Under Safer at Home, restaurants, food courts, cafes, coffeehouses, and other similar places of public accommodation offering food or beverage for on-premises consumption are still closed. Delivery and drive-up service is available. Coloradans can contact their local public health department if they believe someone is violating Safer at Home.”

What else?

The business’s owner, April Arellano, shared anti-lockdown sentiments on social media, the outlet noted. The posts in question, however, have since been deleted.

In one tweet, Arellano reportedly said that she was reopening her restaurant “for America, small businesses, Constitution, and against the overreach of our governor in Colorado[.]”

She also took to Facebook where she defended her decision to reopen.

“[We will] go out of business if I don’t do something,” she wrote. “[I]f I lose the business, at least I’m fighting.”

She added, “We are so behind. We have complied for two months. We cannot make it on $200/day sales when 2 staff cost me $250 not counting food, cost, utilities, and rent.”

The outlet reported that violating the state mandate — currently a misdemeanor crime — could result in a fine of $1,000 or up to a year in prison. Businesses found to be in violation of the mandate could also reportedly lose their operating licenses.

Intelwars Mark lawrence massachusetts Massachusetts ice cream parlor Polar cave ice cream parlour Stay-at-home orders

Ice cream parlor shuts down just 1 day after reopening — because the public harassed employees

A Massachusetts ice cream parlor was forced to close its doors just one day after reopening amid the COVID-19 crisis.

What are the details?

WFXT-TV reported that Mark Lawrence’s Polar Cave Ice Cream Parlour in Mashpee, Massachusetts, made the decision to close its doors Friday after customers reportedly harassed and disrespected the store’s young employees.

The store had opened for just one day after the state determined that ice cream parlors could open with certain restrictions in place.

Lawrence said that he shared news of the opening on Facebook and asked customers to call ahead to place their pickup-only orders one hour in advance. He said that many people disregarded the directive and simply showed up.

When a crowd began to form at the ice cream parlor, Lawrence said that many of the customers began to harass the teenagers working at the dessert store.

“One of my best workers quit yesterday at the end of her shift,” he said. “[T]he words she was called, and the language — you wouldn’t even say in a men’s locker room. And to say it to a 17-year-old kid, they should be ashamed of themselves.”

Lawrence said that he was greatly disturbed by the customers’ behavior and immediately decided to close the store once more.

“People have forgotten how to treat other human beings in the six or seven weeks that they’ve been confined to their homes,” he lamented. “They have no clue how to respect other human beings.”

Lawrence said that the business was simply trying but pointed out that people are going to have to follow directives if they want life to return to semi-normal.

“We’re not claiming that we know what we’re doing,” he added. “We don’t know what we’re doing, but we’re giving it a shot.”

Anything else?

Lawrence created a GoFundMe page to benefit his 17-year-old employee’s college fund in order to help compensate her for lost tips and wages.

At the time of this writing, the crowdfunding page has received more than $3,300.

“No one deserves this kind of abuse, especially a 17-year-old young girl, in a time when we as a country should stand united,” Lawrence wrote on the GoFundMe page.

Churches Contact tracing Coronavirus america Intelwars Kansas City Mayor reopen economy Shutdown Stay-at-home orders

After getting blasted for ‘Nazi-like’ order that churches keep lists of attendees, KC mayor backs down

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas drew notable criticism over his recent
order that churches and other places of worship keep lists of names of service attendees so the city’s health department can track those potentially exposed to the coronavirus — but now he’s backing down.

What’s the background?

The requirement to keep lists of worship service attendees was part of the reopening plan for nonessential businesses. The city’s website noted the “10/10/10 rule,” which “specifies that these businesses must limit the number of individuals on-site (inclusive of employees and customers) to no more than 10 percent of building occupancy or 10 people (whichever is larger), and record the names, contact information, and approximate entry/exit time of all customers who are on premises for more than 10 minutes.”

The website added: “In-person religious gatherings (including weddings and funerals) may resume, subject to the 10/10/10 rule (if held inside), or limited to 50 people outside, provided social distancing precautions are followed and event organizers maintain records of all attendees.”


Last Friday, Matt Staver — founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel —
raised a stink over the list-of-names mandate:

I am running out of adjectives to describe how completely insane the tyrannical abuses launched by state governors and local officials against pastors and churches are becoming. It is as if these leaders never bothered to so much as glance at the Constitution they swore to uphold and defend. They seem to be governing from some make-believe, dystopian viewpoint. …

The Germans did this very thing to Jews – collecting the names and locations of all known synagogue attendees – in the early days of the Nazi regime.

Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined Nazi-like measures designed to surveil, track and spy upon what was once a FREE American people. Yet that is exactly what Kansas City’s misguided government officials are now demanding.

Change of heart

However, Lucas appears to have experienced a change of heart — and the
Kansas City Star reported that he signed new guidance Monday making record-keeping optional, saying merely that businesses and religious groups “should consider” the data.

Lucas’ spokeswoman, Morgan Said, told the paper that the mayor “late last week and over the weekend … felt clearer guidance expressing the voluntary nature of the requirement would be helpful, so the city could discuss the core public health needs addressed by allowing for contact tracing, rather than engaging in ad nauseum political debate.”

Here’s a clip of Lucas explaining the path forward for Kansas City’s reopening. “Must gather contact info of all attendees” can be seen on the bottom right-hand corner of the large 10/10/10 sign.

China dependency Congress Coronavirus COVID-19 Intelwars kentucky National defecit Rand Paul Senate Senator Rand Paul Stay-at-home orders

Rand Paul blasts nationwide lockdowns, says they’re ironically making US even more dependent on China

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says the nationwide stay-at-home orders must cease if America is ever to get back on its feet.

What are the details?

Speaking on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” the Republican senator said that states continuing to enforce lockdown measures are sabotaging themselves as well as the United States and its economy in the long run.

“We have no money, we have no rainy day account, we have no savings account,” he said on Wednesday. “The $3 trillion that we’ve already passed out is imaginary money. It’s being borrowed, basically, from China. So the irony is we got the virus from China, and now we’re going to be more dependent by borrowing more money from China.”

Paul explained that the only way to avoid such a pitfall is to reopen the U.S. economy.

“The only thing that recovers our economy is opening the economy,” he reasoned. “It’s not a lack of money. It’s a lack of commerce. If you let people have commerce, if you let them trade, if you take them out from forcible home arrest, our economy will recover.”

“But,” he continued, “if you keep everybody under home arrest, and you say you cannot practice your business, you cannot sell your goods, there will continue to be economic calamity.”

The Republican lawmaker said that Democratic governors are also contributing to the overall problem by refusing to open their states, and thus, their state economies.

“All these blue state governors who don’t want to open their state, now they’re clamoring for federal money to bail them out because no state revenue is coming in. We don’t have any money,” Paul insisted.

Dave Rubin issues ominous warning about Calif. leaders’ stay-at-home mandates: ‘People will break … Americans love liberty’

Dave Rubin, conservative author and host of the “Rubin Report,” appeared on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” Monday, where he blasted California leaders for closing the beaches and other public areas across the state.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) ordered the beaches in Orange County to close Friday in order to stop the spread of coronavirus across the state.

An estimated thousands of area residents converged on Huntington Beach on Friday to protest Newsom’s order.

What are the details?

Rubin, whose program, “Rubin Report,” is distributed on Blaze Media’s BlazeTV network, explained that he believed California’s lawmakers simply want to flex their political muscles by closing large swaths of public areas — such as beaches — amid the COVID-19 pandemic in order to stop the spread of the disease.

“Just because they have the power to do something, doesn’t mean they automatically should,” he said. “[Liberal politicians] don’t really explain why they are doing it. So you may have seen the video of the deputy mayor of Los Angeles in a helicopter. And he is showing a completely empty beach. And the way he treated it implied he was sort of proud of it.

“It’s like that is really a recipe for disaster in a state like this,” Rubin insisted, pointing out the fact that residents will remain cooped up in their homes only for so long.

“It’s like, if you don’t let us do these things, then at some point people will break,” he reasoned. “What I think that the progressives are misunderstanding here is that Americans love liberty. Americans love being free. We will be responsible, and we’re willing to take some risk. But we can’t live like rats trapped in our houses forever.”

Huntington Police Chief Robert Handy told KTLA-TV that he estimated that at least 2,500 to 3,000 people showed up Friday to protest against Newsom’s order.

Covid-19 lockdown Dirty jobs Essential workers Intelwars Mike Rowe Stay-at-home orders unemployment

Mike Rowe SCHOOLS liberal elites: ‘There is NO SUCH THING as a nonessential worker’

On this week’s Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck and former “Dirty Jobs” host Mike Rowe talked about the “other” victims of the coronavirus: common sense and the unemployed American workers.

“Most of the country is going to come through this with the realization we’re being treated like children … by people who want us to look at them as parents,” Mike said if reference to the liberal elites who don’t want us to question the so-called experts.

Mike highlighted the danger of allowing the government to take away millions of so-called “nonessential” workers and addressed the politicians, such as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who seem to have zero regard for the millions of American who are out of work.

“In an economy like this, when you take 26 million ‘nonessential’ workers out of the equation … the whole thing collapses under its own weight,” he said. “I would suggest to you right now that there is no such thing as a nonessential worker when it comes to the economy.”

He also explained why he believes that “safety first,” while well-intended, is just not true. Instead, he prefers to say “safety third.”

Wisconsin’s Calumet County Sheriff’s Office launched a social media defense over the now-viral video showing a pair of deputies berating a mother for letting her daughter play at a neighbor’s house amid the COVID-19 state lockdown order.

What are the details?

In a Facebook post Sunday, the sheriff’s office explained the confrontation on video was the culmination of several interactions with the woman over “recent weeks.” The post noted two calls on the same day from the woman “asking us to help find her runaway son.” The third contact “involved this female being stopped for speeding,” the sheriff’s office said. There also were calls regarding circumstances at a neighbor’s “mobile home” — where the woman’s daughter was apparently caught playing.

In addition to the speeding stop — the relevance of which isn’t clear — the sheriff’s office also seemed to make quite a bit of the building style of the neighbor’s residence, using the phrase “mobile home” six times in the post. Stereotypes about people who reside in mobile homes or “trailer parks” need no detailing here.

One commenter on the sheriff’s office post noticed the “mobile home” references, too.

“I love how they throw in her ‘mobile’ home… Not just her home,” the commenter said. “I’m a police supporter, but it doesn’t take long for power to be misused or over used… I get people can be extremely frustrating but stay on track officers!!”

Why was she badgered for her last name and middle initial?

Another aspect to the deputies’ confrontation with the mother included one of them badgering her for her last name and middle initial, neither of which she provided to them.

But commenters also pointed out that if the sheriff’s department had numerous interactions with the woman in the video of the last several weeks, how is it they didn’t already have her full name? They knew what door to knock on and called her “Amy” in the video.

‘She walks all day long all over the place barefoot’

In a longer video of the confrontation that the mother in question — Amy Aries — posted on her Facebook page Saturday, the deputy who repeatedly asked for her last name and middle initial also appeared to chastise Aries about her daughter’s lack of footwear.

“She walks all day long all over the place barefoot,” the deputy said.

As she walked away, the same deputy chirped at Aries that “we’ll be back if your daughter’s out”

The mom’s side of the story

Aries told PJ Media she works as a property manager and that home inspections are continuing through the lockdown — which makes Aries an essential worker. However, she’s a single mom of four and needs child care — and her daughter has been at her babysitter’s house, the outlet added.

As far as the sheriff’s office response to the video, Aries told PJ Media that “I have had some circumstances where I needed law enforcement’s help, and when I turned to the very people who have taken an oath to serve and protect, I learned they are the ones who want me to fear them.”

The sheriff’s office on Thursday didn’t immediately reply to TheBlaze’s request for comment on its Facebook post. PJ Media also said the sheriff’s office didn’t reply to its request for comment.

Atlanta mayor blasts Georgia governor’s decision to reopen businesses: ‘He did not tell me directly’

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms says she can’t wrap her head around Gov. Brian Kemp’s (R) decision to open hair salons, massage therapists, and other businesses across the state amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

What are the details?

During a Wednesday appearance on NBC’s “Today” show, Bottoms said that Kemp did not notify her before he made the announcement to reopen some businesses throughout the state in order to restart the state’s economy.

“He did not tell me directly,” she said, “and he’s the governor so I don’t always expect to receive a call directly from the governor. But something of this magnitude, I would have expected at least a call from someone on his team.”

Time reported that Bottoms’ remarked Kemp’s decision “really defies logic.”

“[T]he nature of the business is that you are in close contact with someone, and that’s what’s most disturbing to me about the way this order has been lifted,” Bottoms said on Wednesday.

“It appears the governor’s order supersedes anything I can do as mayor, but I still have my voice and what I will continue to do is ask Atlantans to please stay at home,” Bottoms also told ABC News.

What else?

Kemp announced on Monday that he would begin reopening some businesses on Friday.

According to ABC News, Kemp’s order “would allow gyms, hair salons, bowling alleys and tattoo parlors to reopen as long as owners follow strict social-distancing and hygiene requirements.”

Bars, live performance venues and amusement parks will remain closed, the outlet reported.

“By Monday,” the outlet reported, “movie theaters may resume selling tickets, and restaurants limited to takeout orders could return to limited dine-in service.”

Kemp added, “I think this is the right approach at the right time. We’re not just throwing the keys back to these business owners. We’re talking about people (who had) the government shut down their business.”

Georgia has had at least 20,740 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and at least 836 deaths due to the virus.

Jimmy Kimmel blasts ‘crazy right-wing’ protesters, Trump supporters, southern states: ‘They want guns. They want pollution.’

Jimmy Kimmel, late-night host of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” blasted Trump-supporting protesters during a Monday night monologue, questioning everything from their intellect to their intent.

What are the details?

Kimmel, delivering his monologue from his multimillion-dollar home in the Los Angeles area, said that demonstrators protesting the state’s stay-at-home orders are “crazy right-wing” voters.

“People are getting restless,” he said. “Especially the people who aren’t too bright. In Florida, on Saturday, I saw the hashtag #FloridaMorons was trending and thought, well, this could mean a lot of things.”

Pointing to the Florida governor’s decision to open the beaches in Jacksonville, Kimmel said, “[O]f course no one followed the rules. Fortunately, there are no old people living in Florida who might be at risk.”

He then took a swipe at another southern state — Georgia — in an apparent swipe at country culture.

“The governor of Georgia is planning to reopen tattoo parlors and bowling alleys this week,” he added. “Which I think that’s on their state flag, right?”

What else?

Kimmel then went on to address the stay-at-home protests taking place across America.

“There were some very creative signs that illustrated this plight,” he mocked. “Many are experiencing so powerfully, like, ‘I need a haircut. Massage is essential. Jesus is my vaccine.'”

He continued, “In Denver, Colorado, there was a standoff between protesters and an angry health care worker. Well, you know what they say: It ain’t over till the fat lady screams crazy, right-wing talking points at a medical professional who’s trying to save her family’s lives.”

Kimmel said the big reason people are feeling so emboldened to stand up for their rights is because of President Donald Trump.

“[O]ur president is encouraging them,” he insisted. “Despite everyone who works for him telling people to stay at home. Despite the official White House mandate being shelter-in-place, over the weekend, the guy who runs the White House tweeted, ‘Liberate Michigan, liberate Minnesota, and liberate Virginia.'”

He continued, “I’m starting to think that these characters who support Trump might be suicidal. They seem to fight the hardest for the things that will kill them. They want freedom to gather in large groups during an epidemic. They want guns. They want pollution. I figured it out. They want to die and they’re taking us down with them.”

Professor goes on expletive-laden rant blasting, mocking stay-at-home protesters: ‘Because JESUS and FREEDOM’

A University of Maine professor of political engagement blasted demonstrators protesting against the state’s lockdown orders.

What are the details?

As highlighted by
Campus Reform, Robert Glover, who specializes in “democratic theory, political engagement, and the politics of immigration,” tweeted profane remarks about protesters and their cause on Monday.

In his tweet,
Glover shared a video of Maine demonstrators congregating in Augusta.

“We shouldn’t overestimate support for this sort of fringe bulls**t,” he
wrote. “This is a very vocal, but small, minority. But a few hundred folks yukking it up in public about how we need to open Olive Garden just because JESUS and FREEDOM can thunderf*** our attempts to #StopTheSpread.”

He later added, “Inevitably, in the coming weeks, some of these folks are going to get sick. Some will end up in hospitals and needlessly put health care workers at risk. Some of them will be asymptomatic but get others sick. And that makes me livid.”

“This isn’t activism,” he warned. “It’s f***ing bio-terrorism.”

Below is a snippet of the video Glover shared.

What else?

According to Campus Reform, the event — dubbed Reopen Maine — was set to be a “peaceful, social distancing demonstration by those who are asking the Governor to open Maine back up. Many of the State’s areas are low risk and dying due to restrictions on their small businesses, churches and hospitals.”

Mainers Against Excessive Quarantine, which also participated in the demonstration, said that the group’s very existence is for residents to “constructively discuss which Covid 19 social distancing measures are reasonable and which measures constitute overreach by our elected representatives in government, and what a peaceful and constructive approach to rectifying that overreach could look like.”

There are at least 6,700 members of Mainers Against Excessive Quarantine at the time of this writing.

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University estimate that at least 875 COVID-19 cases have been confirmed across the state, with at least 35 deaths from the virus.
