The Morning Report - 5/7/20

Good morning, kids. Thursday, and another grim milestone of yet another day of America held hostage. It seems that in the wake of civil rights activist Shelly Luther, we have an increase in resistance with a concomitant increase in the ratcheting up of the oppression by the tyrants. Texas' top three elected officials, Governor Greg Abbott, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, and AG Ken Paxton denounced the actions of Leftist hack-in-black Eric Moye in demanding Luther kiss his ring or get thrown in the slammer. Abbott has called for her immediate release and Patrick will pay her fine and offered to take her place in jail. Over in California, the Riverside County Sheriff has told Gavin Noose-em that he will not comply with any edict demanding that citizens be jailed for opening their businesses.

But in PA, the partisans on the state's highest court upheld Wolf's dictatorial shutdown, De Bolshevik has banned protests in the Rotten Apple and back on the west coast, Noose-em is going to cross a line that could lead to an Elian Gonzalez situation, or worse, a Randy Weaver or David Koresh one.

... California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday he was raising up an "army" of contact tracers - as many as 20,000 people - to track down everyone with COVID-19 and quarantine them.

...Newsom announced that the "army" - his word - will start with a deployment of 3,000 and grow to the 20,000 mark to chase down who, what, where, and with whom COVID positive people have had connections. To what end? Newsom said, "the tracing component requires workforce and to identify individuals who tested positive... to ID their contacts (with privacy) and maybe quarantine individuals to stop the spread of the disease."

He means forcible quarantine...

The path to destruction apparently isn't paved with good intentions, but instead with the Commerce Clause.

Why is it that we're freeing prisoners and locking up innocents?

Where are all the Leftists who decry "family separation" with those dubious fake "families" at the border?

Now that governments are caging Americans, will any of them give a squat?...

Don Feder over at Frontpage Mag is not filled with strength and confidence.

...Add to the current death toll civil liberties, representative government and all of the economic gains since the end of the last recession.

Earlier generations of Americans wouldn't have stood for it. Tar and feathers would been in short supply.

We cheerfully comply. According to an April 29 NPR/Marist poll, 65% say they're opposed to letting Americans get back to work without more testing. Presumably, that includes pets.

The Corono-crats won't let you go to church, won't let Dads play catch with their sons in parks, and won't let healthy men and women go to work or dine in restaurants. It makes us wear facemasks to buy groceries. It forces some independent businessmen to witness the deaths of what it took a lifetime to build.

How did we get here? Was it the feminization of America, whereby we've been taught to spurn what used to be called "manly virtues?" In an era of transgendered rights, micro-aggressions and drag-queen story hours, manhood is out of fashion.

People are no longer even ashamed to admit they're cowards. The Land of the Free depends on the brave. That's why we're losing more territory every day...

I guess it took a woman, and notably one from Texas, to stand up to this in-your-face naked tyranny. But it's going to take everyone of us, in unison, to grow a pair and do what Shelly Luther has done. As outrageous as Obamacare was and still is, or mass unchecked immigration and amnesty, or the out of control taxing, spending and deficits, a one-off one-day march on the Capitol is not going to do anything. Responsible, tax-paying Americans are just that; we never had the time to take off from work and our families to be professional agitators and protesters. So what did we do? Shrug it off, bitch about the GOP-e and got back to life as usual, perhaps a bit angrier, but we still had our homes, cars, businesses and livelihoods.

That is, until now. Now they have come for that, and as tens of millions of out-of-work Americans as well as business owners whose life's work has been wiped out in a matter of weeks can attest, this time it's personal. The wolf is at our throats. And this madness from Gavin Noose-em is, or at least it should be, the last straw.

Ironically, we now have all the time in the world to protest. But to hell with marching on Washington or whatever blue state capital is crushing the life out of us. The only sane option is for everyone, regardless of where they are, to be Shelly Luther and go back to your businesses - assuming you still have a business to go back to - open up and go back to work. If we fail to do that, then the only other options are to knuckle under and let the terrorists win, or ultimately at some point be forced to resort to the unthinkable. We laugh at the image of MEAL Team 6, but an oleaginous pudgy digit can pull a trigger on an AR-15 the same as any other. And there are a lot of police departments out there that are not as laudable as Riverside County. If past is prologue, the situation is very much in doubt. That is, unless we see mass, peaceful civil disobedience to tyranny. Someone has got to rally the American people to take this country back, whether it's the President or a Shelly Luther in our midst ready to capture the imagination and rally the people.

Lift the lockdowns. Liberate America.
