The Government Wants to Decide What Items Are Essential Purchases and What Things You’re Not Allowed to Buy
Post Date: 2020-04-07 11:08:21 by Deckard
by Daisy Luther Living under lockdown restrictions, prevalent in nearly every state, is about to get a whole lot worse. The government in the United States and Canada has decided to take away the guesswork in the stores that are still open and decide for you whats essential and whats not. When I have gone to the store to pick up groceries (Im still getting fresh produce while I can), I also like to pick up a couple of things that are pleasant diversions: magazines, a crossword puzzle book, coloring pencils, some craft supplies. Its nice to have some things that are enjoyable on hand to keep lockdown from feeling so grim and torturous. If the store is ...
A ‘Liberty’ Rebellion in Idaho Threatens to Undermine Coronavirus Orders
Post Date: 2020-04-07 10:56:12 by Hondo68
SANDPOINT, Idaho Inside an old factory building north of Boise, a few dozen people gathered last week to hear from Ammon Bundy, the man who once led an armed takeover of an Oregon wildlife refuge. The meeting, which appeared to violate orders by Gov. Brad Little of Idaho to avoid group gatherings, was an assertion of what Mr. Bundy said was a constitutional right to peacefully assemble. But Mr. Bundy said he also hoped to create a network of people ready to come to the aid of those facing closure of their businesses or other interference from the government as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. If it gets bad enough, and our rights are infringed upon enough, we can ...
Sheriff Rebels Against Governor: 'We Will Not Be Setting Up a Police State'
Post Date: 2020-04-06 20:59:06 by Deckard
The coronavirus cannot kill the spirit of American defiance in the face of government orders Americans believe to be unjust, as shown by Scott Nichols, the sheriff of Franklin County, Maine. Democratic Gov. Janet Mills on Friday issued an executive order that requires all out-of-state travelers to self-quarantine for 14 days to lessen the chance of transmitting coronavirus, according to the Portland Press-Herald. The order also tells would-be visitors not to come to Maine if they have symptoms of the virus. Violators could face up to six months in jail and $1,000 fine. While I cannot simply close the states border or pull up the Maine-New Hampshire bridge, as a few people ...
White House COVID-19 Mortality Estimates Fall By 90%
Post Date: 2020-04-06 20:41:52 by Deckard
Computer-modelled forecasts of COVID-19 mortality rates used to justify government lockdown have lost credibility. On 16th March the White House announced a worst case scenario of between 1.5 and 2.2 million deaths from COVID-19. Two weeks later on 31st March the worst case projections dropped 90% to between 100,000 and 240,000 deaths. On neither occasion were the underlying assumptions used by the models to create these figures disclosed. If the models used for government action have been discredited what basis is there for the shut-down measures to remain? The media has sought to attribute the drop in numbers to the success of the governments ...
For A Glimpse Into Your Dystopian Police State Future, Just Visit Your Local Walmart
Post Date: 2020-04-06 20:28:26 by Deckard
Things are really starting to get crazy out there... All over the country, non-essential businesses have been forced to shut down, but because Walmart sells food and other basic supplies it gets to be one of the essential businesses that stays open. However, a trip to your local Walmart now will be far different from what you remember previously. When you arrive, you will find that a very narrow entry corridor has been taped off with yellow security tape, and only a very limited number of shoppers are being allowed in at any one time. And once you get inside, you will discover that there are very strict limits on what you are permitted to ...
Residents Alarmed after Cops Use “Purge Siren” to Signal Start of Curfew
Post Date: 2020-04-06 20:16:38 by Deckard
Residents of a Louisiana Parish issued complaints last week after police signaled the start of a mandatory curfew by blasting a siren similar to one featured in the dystopian film franchise, The Purge. Several residents recorded on their cell phones as police went up and down neighborhoods in Crowley blasting the eerie siren at full volume. The unnerving sound, which sounds similar to an air raid siren, was used by the Crowley Police to signify the start of a curfew that goes from 9PM to 6AM. Crowley Police Chief Jimmy Brousard told KATC.com he was unaware the siren originated from the film, and said the police had no plans to use the siren going forward. Responding to ...

There were only four of them. A group of North Carolina pro-life activists are suing the city of Greensboro, North Carolina for arresting them as they prayed outside an abortion center in the city.

Merely four of them- no great crowd in which coronavirus would be likely present- were praying outside an abortion center called A Womans choice.

The world needs more people like this! John Vibes (TMU) A record 6.6 million Americans filed for unemployment last week, which is double the record-breaking number seen the week before. While some steps have been taken to help mitigate the economic hardships related to the pandemic, such as the recent stimulus package that was passed by the U.S. government, many critics feel that the bill was insufficient for low wage workers. The unprecedented shut down of the economy has deepened the poverty crisis in the country, and local food banks have seen an overwhelming increase in demand as people begin to worry about where their next meals are going to come from.

NY Coronavirus: 'We Could Be On The Plateau'
Post Date: 2020-04-06 02:25:54 by Gatlin
NY Coronavirus: 'We Could Be On The Plateau' NEW YORK Downstate New York could be at or very near the apex of its new coronavirus outbreak, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at his Sunday news briefing. "The apex could be a plateau and we could be on the plateau right now," he said. "The next few days will tell." Evidence that the outbreak may have peaked: the number of people released from the hospital has been rising, and in particular the total number of new hospitalizations is much lower. ICU admissions are also down. But it will take more than a couple of days of numbers to accurately depict a trend, he said. With more than 300,000 people tested in New ...
"Pandemic Drones" Can Now Detect Fever and Coughing
Post Date: 2020-04-05 14:13:09 by Deckard
The COVID-19 outbreak is proving to be the Trojan horse that justifies the ushering in of the surveillance state. We've noted how governments and corporations are quickly deploying big data and spy tools to monitor people during the pandemic. The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration, and now the war on COVID-19: all start out as legitimate responses but then are used by politicians to increase the surveillance state and erode any freedoms citizens have left. What's coming to America in the not too distant future is a full-blown surveillance state, that could be on par with China's. In particular, we want to show ...
