It’s for your safety!

On 11 March 2020, Rhode Island announced a door-to-door campaign to determine if people were there visiting from New York, the local “Hot Spot” to go catch the Chinese Virus or KungFlu (also known as Covid-19, SARS-CoV-2).  If they are/were visiting they were going to immediately, without any due process, to remained locked in the place they were staying for 14 days, in quarantine, disallowed from going out side under threat of arrest and fines.

That very same day, police were stopping cars with out of state plates, informing the people in the cars of the “14 day quarantine”; presumably placing the people in the car as well as officers at risk themselves of coming into contact with someone already infected.

In a little town in North Carolina, called Oak Island, rumors were rampant of police giving tickets to people from out of state.  On the 17th of March, Oak Island closed the bars, pubs, and all small “non-essential businesses”.  These included cleaning businesses, bike paths, jogging trails (there are few of those), local parks and boat ramps.

The State of North Carolina made a point of leaving the State run ABC stores OPEN (which are still open).  The majority of DMV offices, however, were closed.  Doctors offices began cancelling all appointments.  Routine “cancer screenings” were stopped, as were other, important check ups for the elderly, because, “Well, you’re stable, you don’t need to come in….”

Outer Banks shut down their bridges, stopping and turning around cars coming from “outside”, even if they owned property, they were disallowed from going into their homes on the islands of the Outer Banks.

Cruising boats (boats that have full time crews, owners and people traveling from port to port, state to state, along the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), to the Bahamas, Florida and so forth) were physically stopped and turned around along the ICW.  Fortunately, some Americans called the US Coast Guard on the local police, and they were ordered to cease and desist in preventing sailors from passing through.  This did NOT stop some of the “local self-appointed sheriffs” from stopping others from dropping an anchor in safe harbors (even though they had no intention of going ashore, but were simply seeking safety for the evening along their intended course).

The 14th Amendment states:

Amendment XIV

Section 1.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

From this alone, we can see that Rhode Island (and the Outer Banks, Oak Island) has well over stepped any bounds, and placed themselves in jeopardy of being sued for Civil Rights Violations.

Futhermore, Governors in several states, specifically Colorado, North Carolina, Michigan and New York (Many others have done the same thing).

Some of these states are issuing “Executive orders” and stating “This makes it law”  (Colorado is a specific example of this).

We all understand there’s a danger in catching a terrible, life-threatening virus.  Many of us, especially older people, already are “smart enough” to wash our hands, and ensure we’re not exposed to people who are obviously ill.  And we hear you “Nannies” telling us we don’t KNOW who is sick!

But, there’s a fine line in being a nanny and a ninny.

There’s also a fine line between “legal” and “illegal”.

In the United States, Executive Orders are issued by an Executive, like the President or the Governor of a state. Those Orders do NOT have “force of law” where individuals are concerned.  Executive Orders are used to manage, or control an entity or agency under the President or Governor.

Executive Orders are NOT to control people, population, or to interfere with businesses.

It isn’t LEGAL for a “Governor” to sign an “edict” to tell the people where to go, how to act, or to control their movements. Controlling someone’s movements through out, into and out of ANY STATE is AGAINST Federal Law.

Our Constitution LIMITS the government, not the people.

ALL “Rights” specifically not delegated to the USA by the Constitution are reserved to the states, or to the People.

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

This doesn’t allow the states to unilaterally deny access to jobs, beaches, parks, trails, or any businesses. (In reality, this disallows Feds, State and local governments from even exercising their ‘rights’ over revenue income, like alcohol, tobacco, firearms, marijuana, etc but for some reason these are ignored by everyone and even accepted).

The Constitution’s 10th Amendment specifically disallows the Federal Government from placing mandates on states and people, like telling them “to stay home”.

Using one state as an example, Colorado, let’s look at something specific to understand the issue more clearly.

Colorado issues an executive order to “Stay home“.   This is being treated as “Law”, but the state of Colorado has a State Legislature, who creates the laws, which are then signed INTO law by the Governor (Polis).  The State Legislature took no such action.  The EO as shown in the link above orders people to stay home.

In contradiction to this, the state Covid stay-at-home-explanation states, CLEARLY;

Will I be fined or jailed if I don’t follow the stay-at-home order?

This Executive Order Ordering Coloradans to Stay at Home makes this the law, therefore breaking the order is breaking the law. Success depends on all of us doing our part to slow the spread of the virus and ultimately, save lives. We are calling for voluntary compliance by all affected; however, local law enforcement agencies have the authority to enforce this law. Local law enforcement enforces public health orders. State law enforcement will assist and support in any way requested, but our hope is that involvement by law enforcement is reserved only for the most aggravated circumstances.  We are calling on people to individually do their part. Your employer may be fined if they are not following the rules outlined in this order.

Public “health” orders.

It’s for YOUR safety, Citizen!  Go home. Stay home.  Don’t visit.  No contact with others.

Law Enforcement has no authority to “enforce public health orders” – and declaring an “emergency” or “disaster” gives a government/governor over reaching “authority” to do as he or she sees fit.

Against YOUR WILL.  Against the Will of the People.  Against businesses.  All Businesses, regardless of their product or service are essential to someone, otherwise they would not be in business. (Read this link about essential businesses)

In a Police State, the government can do anything it likes, to you, about you, to your business, to your family.  Right now, we are in a Police State.  Each state claiming to be doing this under the auspices of “For your Own Safety” are doing so “Against the Law” and “against The People”, and “against Capitalism”.

Businesses are shutting down, permanently.  Every day this continues, more and more are closing their doors forever.  They can’t make their bills, which, didn’t stop.  They can’t pay employees, whom they are letting go.  Employees are making more money staying home than going to work in some areas of the country – thus the gas station people, dollar store people are making their 7 bucks an hour minimum wage, while the “Stay at home, non-essentials” are making 400-800 dollars a week in unemployment monies.

Suicide rates are up, but there is little information at this point to show this to be true, we know it is happening.  We also know that most deaths are being attributed to the virus itself.

Human beings, by and large, are social creatures.  We love to see our friends, family, meet with people, do things together.  While some of us are more “stay at home types”, the majority go out at least once a month, while many are out every chance we get.  Some of us live a different life than most, out of doors most of the time, inside for only sleeping, rest or hiding from the heat or cold of the day.

Being “sentenced” to an imprisonment indoors for having committed no crime, for an indeterminate period of time, without the ability to even go to a beach, park, or ride your bike, or visit your favorite watering hole is criminal.

Even Criminals have due process, Civil Rights, right to a speedy trial.  And look at the number of “criminals” who’ve been released from prison to “prevent them from catching Covid-19″…  Common sense among some of these so-called leaders walked out the door and never looked back upon them.

To plant the final seed, remember these people aren’t our “leaders”.  They are elected officials.  They have NO/ZERO/NONE Authority to control, or tell an adult, human, FREE Population what to do, nor how to do it without your CONSENT.

Remove their Consent.  Do it today.  Stop these illegal activities and understand that We the PEOPLE run this country, and will no longer allow tyrants to do so.  Also understand we have the Right to decide our OWN fates, to mingle or not as WE choose, not how some Nazi/Leftist Government wants us to do….

Vote them out, recall them, order them to stand down, protest this over stepping of Constitutional Boundaries and remove them come November, from any chance of every controlling you again.

 

 

Guess who is stealing Second Amendment Signs?

A New York man, frustrated when his pro-Second Amendment sign kept disappearing, was surprised when the hidden camera he set up revealed the culprit to be a local cop.

Jon Gibson, of rural Lake Lincolndale, about 50 miles north of New York City, told FoxNews.com he set up a hunting field camera near the sign, which reads “Protect the Second Amendment,” and features the silhouette of an assault rifle, after two mysteriously vanished. A third sign disappeared before the camera finally captured the sign stealer — a police officer from the nearby Somers Police Department.

“It was pure shock to see,” Gibson said to FoxNews.com about first seeing the video recorded on Monday. “He had a huge smile on his face as he’s kicking down the sign.

Congress numbers not in favor of war

Republican U.S. House Speaker John Boehner and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi voted the same way just five times in the past three years. Every time, the House has followed their lead.

That may change when it comes to Syria. Boehner and Pelosi are among about 20 members — or about 5 percent of the House — publicly supporting a military strike so far.

On the other side is an unusual alliance of Tea Party Republicans and antiwar Democrats who make up the bulk of at least 68 lawmakers opposed to military action — 54 Republicans and 14 Democrats, according to a Bloomberg News tally.

It would take 217 votes to kill the measure in the House, or to pass it.

New York and U.S. Open Investigations Into Bitcoins

By NATHANIEL POPPER
Benjamin M. Lawsky of New York sent subpoenas to 22 companies that have had some links to bitcoin.Michael Appleton for The New York TimesBenjamin M. Lawsky of New York sent subpoenas to 22 companies that have had some links to bitcoin.

Updated, 8:55 p.m. | State and federal officials are starting broad investigations into shortcomings in the oversight of upstart virtual currencies like bitcoin.

The Senate’s committee on homeland security sent a letter this week to the major financial regulators and law enforcement agencies asking about the “threats and risks related to virtual currency.” These currencies, whose popularity has grown in recent years, are often used in online transactions that are not monitored by traditional financial institutions.

“This is something that is clearly not going away, and it demands a whole government response,” said a person involved in the Senate committee’s investigation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the inquiry is continuing.

The Senate letter went out the same day that New York’s top financial regulator, Benjamin M. Lawsky, sent subpoenas to 22 companies that have had some involvement with bitcoin, according to a person briefed on the investigation.

Previously, there have been isolated efforts to crack down on those who took advantage of virtual currencies. But the two investigations made public this week appear to be the most wide-ranging government efforts to exert more coordinated control over what has been a largely faceless and borderless phenomenon.

Bitcoin, the most well-known digital currency, was started by anonymous Japanese computer programmers in 2009 and was intended to serve as an alternative to national currencies. Only a limited number of bitcoins can be created. And an online community has bid up the price of individual bitcoins, which are stored digitally on a decentralized network of computers. On Tuesday, a bitcoin was being sold for about $108 online.

Lawmakers are worried that bitcoin and other alternative forms of money can be used to evade taxes, defraud investors and assist trade in illegal products like drugs and pornography.

Last month, the Securities and Exchange Commission accused a Texas man of profiting from a bitcoin Ponzi scheme on the same day it issued a broader warning about the dangers of similar frauds. Earlier this year, the operators of another virtual currency, Liberty Reserve, were accused of running a $6 billion money-laundering ring.

The Senate committee began looking into virtual currency a few months ago, formally interviewing several regulators and industry participants. The committee recently stepped up its efforts because staff members had heard “real concern” from law enforcement officials, and because it became clear that regulators did not have enough information about the technology, according to the person involved in the investigation.
