Mr. Trump, the state politicians are cracking down on the people again.
Signs of the times:
Bloomberg Law (7/9/2020): “States Starting to Crack Down on Coronavirus Rule Breakers”
“Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) has focused on the moral responsibility to family and community to mask up. Along with a new order Tuesday extending mandatory masks in all indoor public places to be enforced by businesses came a new refrain: No mask, no service.”
“’If people are not wearing a mask, simply don’t ring up the sale’,” Inslee said at a news conference. ‘This is a key to keep businesses open’.”
“Those who don’t comply can face civil penalties of up to $70,000 as a workplace violation. Violating a gubernatorial proclamation carries fines of up to $5,000 and nearly a year in jail, Inslee Press Secretary Mike Faulk said.”
“The cities of Santa Monica and West Hollywood in California announced July 2 that they would strengthen mask mandates and add penalties ranging from several hundred to several thousand dollars for violators.”
“Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) on Friday ordered that people who don’t wear a face covering be fined up to $500, even in parts of the state where most businesses have been allowed to reopen.”
Of course, to you, Mr. President, these amounts of money are trivial. You’re still trying to figure out where the trillions of bailout dollars you signed away are coming from. Who’s underwriting that cash? The Chinese? An elf in never-never land?
Where’s your Army? Is the 82nd Airborne practicing distancing, and mumbling to each other through medical masks? Are they busy spraying their parachutes with gallons of disinfectant? Are they paying fines for jumping out of planes too close to one another during practice runs?
Do you actually believe the 50 million Americans put out of work by the lockdowns are suddenly going to snap back, because businesses are gradually reopening? The shuttered collapsed businesses are going to return from the dead?
Let me pen a presidential proclamation for you, Mr. President: “Today, I sent in US troops to take America back from the traitorous governors and mayors. As I speak, they are surrounding government office buildings in cities across the land. The economy is reopening. For good. Permanently. My aide, Mister Fauci, is relieved of his position and dismissed from his federal job…”
You have to tell the American people and all those who voted for you that a war is being waged against them.
A devastating economic war. Under the pretext of what amounts to a flu season, citizens are facing incalculable financial and human losses. You will not let this tragedy continue. FREEDOM will be reinstated.
You don’t care what CNN or The New York Times or anybody else has to say about your decision. You wouldn’t be a president if you didn’t take this action.
The news media are to blame for refusing to cover the grotesque and tragic effects of the lockdowns. They’ve tried to put the American people in a fantasy dream world, where happy families play on the floor in a stay-at-home get-reacquainted studio act out of Leave It to Beaver.
“If you want to wear a mask, wear one. If you don’t want to, don’t. Anyone who tries to enforce masks will do prison time.” Issue that statement, Mr. President.
Do you think the limits of the surreal will be stretched too thin by the wartime actions I’m recommending? Go to your city, New York. Walk the desolate boarded-up streets. Look at the pod people shuffling along here and there in their masks. Go down into the empty subways. Is that surreal enough for you? In the once greatest city in the world?
Remember the neutron bomb? It destroys people but leaves the buildings intact. And now, a STORY about a virus is having a similar effect. Is that surreal enough for you?
Is there is a risk in calling up the Army and sending them in? Of course there is. Many risks would be on the table. Through setting a precedent, turning America into a military dictatorship is one that springs to mind. But what happens if you leave the destiny of the country in the hands of the Faucis and the Globalist psychopaths they front for?
One of your greatest risks, if you rise to meet the challenge, is the Nice and Polite and Normal and Passive that has been ground into the hearts and souls of people. Many of them will do anything, go along with anything, to avoid sudden shocks to the system.
And yet, they absorbed the lockdowns.
A century of brainwashing about GERMS explains that.
A once proud nation of individuals folds up when somebody on television says VIRUS.
So you’ll have to try to resurrect that pride. That spirit of resistance.
Nobody said it would be easy.
If sending in the Army to restore freedom is too much for you, perhaps there is a somewhat softer solution. The FBI employs 35,000 people. The Department of Justice employs thousands more. Empower these men and women and put them in the states and cities, and station them there with a mandate to open the economy all the way, permanently, with no restrictions whatsoever.
Against any objection, remind naysayers there is a war going on. A real one. America is the target. You’re fighting that war, against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Despite cosmetic primping by the press, the nation is not pretty now. America is not great again. In 2020, the direction has been DOWN and FURTHER DOWN. This happened on your watch.
Be bold. Be courageous. Or is that not really in your character? Was your swagger just a front?
It can’t have escaped your attention that, having promised to build the economy of the country to huge heights again, you’re now, astonishingly, sitting in the middle of economic destruction; and you’re the perfect scapegoat for the press and the political Left. They wouldn’t have wanted a Democratic president in the White House during this crisis. They needed you there to flesh out their horror story. They needed you to take the fall.
You’ve been set up, Mr. President.
So be it. What are you going to do about it?
