As governments and their public health brigades become more vindictive in their drive to crush small and independently-owned businesses across America, owners are getting creative in order to preserve their livelihoods, as well as those of their employees.
In Missouri, Jackson County officials said they will seek a court order to try and close a Blue Springs restaurant for what they claim are ‘repeated violations’ COVID-19 health decrees, including the county’s mask mandate.
“One day after the county shut down the cafe, it reopened as a “private club.” A sign on the door stated that, “by entering ]this club, you admit that you are not a member of the general public. By signing your name, you record your membership and attendance. You also assume any and all risks of disease transmission.”
Amanda Wallace owner of Rae’s Cafe in Missouri, felt she had no choice but to convert her business into a ‘private members club’ in order to prevent the county’s public health gestapo from using ever-changing arbitrary COVID rules and restrictions to force her out of business.
21st Century Wire exists with the purpose to educate, promote learning on geopolitical and social issues, as well as provide much-needed independent commentary, news reporting, including criticisms and critiques of larger corporate and foundation-funded media outlets and their coverage of global events.
They also aim to deliver a consistent stream of independent research on subjects and views that are generally not covered in the corporate-owned and foundation-funded media spheres. In this way, they are helping to re-balance the discourse by giving a platform to alternative views and narratives which are largely absent from the corporate mainstream media and state-affiliated media outlets.
