The fake news media, and the rest of the organized Left, are using the coronavirus panic to increase the size and scope of government at every level. Big League Politics has reported on liberal city officials using coronavirus fears as an excuse to usurp the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution and let dangerous criminals and illegal aliens loose on the streets.
One fake news merchant has taken advocacy for tyranny to another level. He published an op/ed in The Hill on Thursday urging President Donald Trump to enact full-blown martial law to defeat the coronavirus pandemic.
“In a totalitarian society like China, this was possible. For weeks, no one was allowed in and out of the city except for deliveries. People were confined to their homes. After making many awful mistakes, the Chinese government pivoted, quarantined the region and then enforced these rules with a heavy hand. You can argue with their tactics, but you can’t argue with their results. It worked. Which is why I say to President Trump: Shut us down, sir. Please, just shut us down,” wrote columnist Gene Marks, whose work regularly appears in the Washington Post.
“I mean the whole country. Not just New York or San Francisco, but Louisville, Denver, Harrisburg, Clearwater and Madison. Every small town, whether there’s a case or not. I’m talking martial law. Do it. You said you’re now a “wartime president.” So act like one,” he added.
Marks wants “fines and jail time” to anyone who does not comply with quarantine mandates. He wants military jackboots “patrolling the streets” constantly to enforce the lock down. He claims he wants this because he is a small business owner.
“I ask you to do this because I’m a small business owner. What we’re doing right now is not helping the economy. By imposing a strict national quarantine, the effects for my business – and the economy overall – would be very, very positive,” he wrote.
In actuality, the government lock down is killing small businesses around the country while mega tycoons on Wall Street are bailed out to the tune of trillions. Nevertheless, Marks argues that the coronavirus shut down helps the little guy.
“Without a definitive eradication, businesses – especially small businesses – are going to continue to suffer widely in the months to come. Many of them will fail because of it,” he wrote.
“But not if we have an enforced, draconian, serious nationwide shutdown. With that, every business, except the most essential, closes their doors. And we wait it out,” he added.
He says that the only humane thing to do to help small businesses is for Trump to enact full martial law right now. After that, everything will be fine in a few weeks and Americans’ lost liberties will all be restored, according to his fairy tale.
“So please, Mr. President, just shut us down already. The whole country. We can take it. We’re behind you. Because we know that the long-term economic impact – particularly on the country’s 30 million small businesses – will be much, much less severe than if we deal with this problem haphazardly, as we’re doing now,” Marks concluded. “It’s not the virus that’s killing us. It’s the prolonged uncertainty.”
Marks may get what he’s advocating for in no time, as the National Guard takes the streets in larger numbers. The coronavirus pandemic is tearing at the fabric of America and constitutional normalcy may never return.

SILVER LINING? Coronavirus Economic Fallout Expected to Destroy Hundreds of Main Stream Newspapers, Magazines
The fake news media is dying even more quickly because of coronavirus.
The coronavirus pandemic is expected to cause massive economic damage throughout many sectors, and what remains of the legacy journalism industry may be wiped out as a result.
The Seattle Times serves as a microcosm for what is happening to local papers throughout America in the age of coronavirus. As they deal with a community ravaged by the pandemic, their advertising budget has completely dried up, and they may not be able to remain in business for much longer.
“Virtually all entertainment advertising is gone, restaurants gone. Automobile advertising is starting to get impacted,” said Alan Fisco, the president and CFO of the paper, to BuzzFeed News.
Even though the paper’s “online traffic has been at times off the charts,” they are unable to properly monetize that traffic. They fear that the ad revenue may be lost forever by the time the coronavirus pandemic comes to a close.
“If you go back to events in the past where you’ve seen some big impacts [to ad spending], does all of it come back? It hasn’t,” Fisco said.
Ken Doctor, who analyzes the news industry with the firm Newsonomics, believes that the economic impact caused by the coronavirus pandemic will be much worse for the media industry than the 2008 financial crisis, which resulted in a 19 percent decline in revenue for newspapers.
“[Newspaper] advertising revenue is getting just wiped out,” Doctor said to BuzzFeed News, adding that the situation is already “worse than in 2008 and 2009.”
For many media entities, Doctor believes that this will be the end. He said that “this seems like for them truly it is the full extinction event. I don’t know how they come back.”
The Seattle Times may be able to survive due to rising subscriber fees. Other big-name dailies – like the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Washington Post – are expected to weather the storm as well. However, all of the smaller local newspapers and digital providers will likely be wiped out completely.
“I think there we will unfortunately see more closures of newspapers, more news deserts as a result of this,” Fisco said.
Media companies and reporters are already reporting on the early damage that has been caused because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The phrase being thrown around in an alt-media group on FB. If you don’t support your local newspapers NOW, whether you engage with print or not, you WILL lose an extremely dedicated lifeline to arts, music, culture and unbiased news in your community. pic.twitter.com/T0RMZFOLnA

Rough day at @RiverfrontTimes. Myself and multiple staffers "furloughed." No notice from management in previous days; simply the lovely wake-up notice that I had been booted as FB admin and couldn't log in to email. Love ya'll. Love this staff and the work we do. Sigh.

A spokesperson for BuzzFeed News, who published the initial story about how the media industry is hurting because of coronavirus, said their provider is working to avoid firing staffers in these trying times.
“BuzzFeed’s leadership team is exploring a range of ways to support employees while protecting our business,” said Chief Communications Officer Carole Robinson. “Our goal is to avoid layoffs, with an alternative plan that requires some sacrifice from all of us — and especially those on the executive team — ultimately allowing us to remain a strong company over the long-term.”
The coronavirus pandemic is a worst case scenario come to life, but the economic fallout from the crisis may prove to be fatal for the fake news industry.
