Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced on Monday, March 9, 2020 that the government has broadened internal travel restrictions to the entire country until April 3.
The country’s northern region was initially locked down in an attempt to keep the coronavirus from spreading even further.
In doing so, Conte’s measure has led to a lockdown of 6o million people in one of Europe’s most populated countries. Italy is the country with the highest number of people testing positive for the coronavirus outside of China. Additionally, Conte revealed that all public gatherings and sporting events would be prohibited.
As of Sunday, March 8, 2020, 9,000 people tested positive for the coronavirus in Italy, with more than 450 people dying from the complication. This development compelled Italian authorities to act.
Italy initially imposed travel restrictions on the Lombardy region in addition to the 14 other northern provinces this past weekend.
According to Conte, the new decree would go into effect on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 and it is designed to protect Italy’s most vulnerable. The Italian leader advised his citizens to stay home and avoid traveling unless it’s an emergency.
Thanks to the influence of Italian populist Matteo Salvini, Italian political leaders have been forced to take nationalist positions once he left office.
Europe’s open borders social experiment has already brought about devastating social results.The current coronavirus health crisis presents another dangerous flaw of open borders as freely flowing people increases the chances that certain regional illnesses become global in nature.
Unlike most of Europe, Italy gets it. Hopefully, the U.S. takes a page from the Italian playbook and considers shutting down its Southern border in order to reassert its sovereignty and protect its citizens from this global virus outbreak.
The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him
Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.
President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.
On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.
The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”
In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”
“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.
Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.
Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
