Posted on 05/15/2020 3:49:57 PM PDT by week 71
President Trump and 50 governors now face a critical choice. Since March 16, 33 million Americans have filed for unemployment, and more than 83,000 American deaths have been attributed to the COVID-19 virus.
So what to do? How many more weeks, months, or even years should current sheltering-in-place orders continue? When can or should they be lifted?
The administrations virus taskforce has recommended only a gradual lifting of stay-at-home orders and has established criteria for full re-opening that could take months to satisfy in many states. Yet Trump also insisted that even though some people [will] be affected badly. . . and there will be more death, we have to get our country open and we have to get it open soon.
Many in the media condemned this statement as risking more death to save the economy and a dangerous repudiation of the science. Blue-state governors who have refused to reopen have similarly cited the science to justify their decisions to extend stay-at-home orders.

More like 37,000 deaths from the Chinese Communist Virus.
Federal government should not interfere with states more than necessary, say in time of a real war. The states are often though of as an opportunity to try different things and see what works. Let it play out but do not send federal dollars to bail out failed experiments.
I’m in Michigan and waiting to hear what the Michigan Judge will decide on Republican lawsuit about her extending shut down longer then 28 days. I suspect the Judge will go with the Gov as she said “I suspect this will end up with Michigan Supreme Court.
Also read from Detroit news how Dem legislators are calling Whitmer out on her sending SR COVID patients back to nursing homes, like Cuomo did. We have lot of deaths compared to other states. 5 counties in Michigan have the majority of cases and deaths and she is holding the whole state hostage.
Michigan cases 50,079 and 4825 deaths. Our deaths compared to other states with same or over cases in so much less then Michigan.
I really believe she will extend the shut down after May 28th.
At some point I hope President steps in but won’t be anytime soon.
Article is spot-on. He should have added more diverse medical voices to challenge Fauci long before this.
A REQUIREMENT THAT HAS BEEN SUSPENDED!!!
But you still have to call in to get payment. But you can't get through by phone or net.
FUBAR ON STEROIDS
The Mi GOP should have gone directly to the Mi SC. When Half Whit wins in the lower court it will just end up helping her and dragging it out.
The governors & others insisting on continuing the “shelter-in-place” orders need to be suffering in similar fashion right along with the people they are ordering.
And a federal prosecutor to investigate the nursing home deaths in many states by their governors hand
It’s up to the Governors to open their states up. But they have to be careful on curtailing the freedom of speech. Okay. People cannot meet outside. Allow them have drive in service. Outside sitting where people are socially distancing from each other. AG Barr needs to go after Governors who are continuing with that kind of stunt.
Probably motivated in part by loss of unconstitutional, vote-buying federal funding, these governors are likely weaponizing (imo) pandemic to get PDJT out of office to recover such funding.
But patriots are reminded that constitutional lawmakers have given Congress the express 14th Amendment (14A) power to make punitive laws to discourage state actors from unreasonably abridging rights that the states have amended the Constitution to expressly protect.
From the 14th Amendment:
"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 [emphasis added]; 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.
"Section 5: The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."
H O W E V E R
We are still stuck with a very corrupt, elite Congress left over from the lawless Obama Administration that will predictably cheer while watching CNN show state elected officials enjoy beaches and parks that they have otherwise prohibited public access to in the name of the SARS-CoV-2 lockdown. "Trump did this!"
The remedy for constitutionally failed federal and state governments
Send "Orange Man Bad" federal and state government Democrats and RINOs home in November!
Supporting PDJT with a new patriot Congress and state government leaders that will not only promise to fully support his already excellent work for MAGA and stopping SARS-CoV-2 but will also do the following.
New lawmakers also need to promise to do their 14A duty to make punitive laws to discourage state actors from abridging constitutionally enumerated protections.
"The Holy Grail of organized crime is to control government power to tax." me
"The power to tax involves the power to destroy, [...] Chief Justice John Marshall, McCulloch v. Maryland, 1819.
"The 16th Amendment effectively repealed the involuntary servitude aspect of the 13th Amendment imo, evidenced by unconstitutional federal taxes." me
"Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States." Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
"13th Amendment, Section 1:
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude [emphasis added], except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration."
"Its politically correct, under the Democratic Party and its tyrant judges, to use your voting power to make your fellow citizens involuntary servants." me
The Democratic elite define a "pro-choice" democracy as being able to vote for your master.
"The ill-conceived 17th Amendment not only effectively politically repealed the 3/4 state supermajority requirement of the Constitutions Article V for ratification of proposed amendments to the Constitution imo, politically correct interpretations of the Constitution now prevailing under Democratic judicial tyranny, but also consider this. That amendment also effectively nullified Congresss constitutional Article I, Section 8-limited powers along with the Supreme Courts clarification of Congresss limited power to appropriate taxes." me
"Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States. Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
"The constitutionally undefined political parties are basically rival, corrupt voter unions, union dues paid by means of unconstitutional federal taxes. Belonging to a political party means that you are a subject, not a member. me
"Patriots need to support PDJT in demanding that Congress moves "April 15" tax day to the day before election day." me
"The smart crooks long ago figured out that getting themselves elected to federal office to make unconstitutional tax laws to fill their pockets is a much easier way to make a living than robbing banks." me
"Federal career lawmakers probably laugh all the way to the bank to deposit bribes for putting loopholes for the rich and corporations in tax appropriations laws, Congress actually not having the express constitutional authority to make most appropriations laws where domestic policy is concerned. Such laws are based on stolen state powers and uniquely associated stolen state revenues." me
Put the Barstool Sports guy on the Task Force.
“When did flattening the curve become finding a cure?”
He would liven things up.
He should have done that the minute Fauci came on the scene and then fired the little bastard. Fauci is deep state, He backed The Beast big time in 2016, and he is committed to the destruction of the economy and Trumps election in November. Trump was hoodwinked, and Fauci won the Art of the Deal.
Most dead were from Democrats and their reaction/inaction.
I was dismayed to read today that in expanding the task force, all the new members are gvt bureaucrats. Link.
Fauci's influence needs to be very diminished. He has been so wrong so many times.
Yes, we are stupid in how to win.
