Alex Jones, the popular conspiracy theorist who founded Infowars, is preparing a lawsuit against the Trump administration in order to stop a possible interstate travel ban, as the U.S. inches toward martial law.
Although President Trump has not announced an interstate travel ban yet, he has said that it could be in the works if he feels it is necessary to stop coronavirus. Jones, who is one of Trump’s most prominent backers, feels this would be crossing the line.
“In our view, while the COVID-19 crisis does present a real and present danger to public health, there is also something significant at stake, and that is our fundamental freedoms and rights as Americans,” lawyer Norm Pattis said while appearing on The Alex Jones Show Monday. “We have drafted a lawsuit titled Alex Jones v. Donald Trump, naming a number of Trump’s Cabinet officials, in the event that President Trump announces an interstate travel ban or something like it.”
“We will go immediately into a District of Columbia court and ask for injunctive declaratory relief,” he added. “In other words, a ruling from a judge that the action is unlawful, and an order from the judge barring implementation of it. If that judge rejects our claim, we we’ll go to the D.C. Court of Appeals. If that court rejects our claim we will seek a hearing in the United States Supreme Court.”
Jones makes it clear that he is not doing this out of spite or malice, but rather to protect American constitutional liberties while the country is in a very precarious state.
“When I do this, it’s not because it’s President Trump, I like President Trump. The globalists definitely hate him, but they’ve maneuvered him into this impossible choice, this rock and a hard place, because if he doesn’t respond, they’ll just trigger riots and other crises, and the media will trigger hysteria. Either he comes in with the clampdown or the globalists do it and brush him aside and make him irrelevant. The left has celebrated it. We said ‘Trump, look out! They’re setting you up.’ We were absolutely right,” he said.
President Trump issued a press conference on Monday urging people not to gather in groups larger than 10 people in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
“We have an invisible enemy,” Trump said. “This is a bad one. This is a very bad one.”
“Each and every one of us has a critical role to play in stopping the spread and transmission of the virus,” Trump added. “If everyone makes this change or these critical changes and sacrifices now, we will rally together as one nation, and we will defeat the virus, and we’re going to have a big celebration altogether. With several weeks of focused action, we can turn the corner and turn it quickly.”
Jones has the lawsuit prepared and will issue it against the Trump administration if they announce an interstate travel ban.
Amid a Flurry of Ums and Uhs, AG Nominee Merrick Garland Refuses to Say That Illegal Border Crossings Should Remain a Crime
What a hot mess.
Merrick Garland, who is President Joe Biden’s nomination for attorney general, refused to say that illegal border crossings should remain a crime.
His comments about the border came in response to a question from Sen. Josh Hawley at Garland’s confirmation hearing Monday.
“[I’d like to] talk a little bit more about the law enforcement challenges at the border, which I know a number of other members have brought up with you,” Hawley said. “Just a fundamental question: Do you believe that illegal entry at America’s borders should remain a crime?”
Garland responded as follows: “Well, I haven’t thought about that question. Uh, I just haven’t thought about that question. I think, you know, uh, the president has made clear that we are a country with borders and with a concern about national security. Um, I don’t know of a proposal to, uh, decriminalize but still make it unlawful to enter. I just don’t know the answer to that question. I haven’t thought about it.”
“Will you continue to prosecute unlawful border crossings?” Hawley asked.
“Well, this is again, uh, a question of allocation of resources. Um, we will, uh, the department will, you know, prevent unlawful crossing. Um, I don’t know, you know, uh, I have to admit I just don’t know exactly what the conditions are and how this is done. I think if, um, um, I don’t know what the current program even is with respect to this. Um, so, I, I assume that the answer would be yes but I don’t know what [the conditions are],” Garland said.
Garland’s “hands off” approach to illegal immigration could form a crucial element of Biden’s “America Last” immigration policy, with federal law enforcement resources directed to left-wing policy priorities as waves of caravans infiltrate the porous borders.
