Marco Rubio Says U.S. Is Not Under ‘Marshall Law’ as Businesses are Shut Down, State of Emergency Declared

Rubio made the tweet on Monday.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) defended emergency measures that are being taken to shut down businesses and stop freedom of association amidst the coronavirus pandemic in a tweet on Monday morning.

Rubio said that the measures did not constitute “marshall law,” misspelling martial law. He accused those stating otherwise as being guilty of “spreading stupid rumors.”

Rubio’s tweet can be seen here:

However, despite Rubio’s denialism, some liberal bureaucrats are using the coronavirus pandemic as the means to gain illicit power under the cover of emergency measures.

Big League Politics has reported on an Illinois Mayor who has used the coronavirus panic as an excuse to give herself the power to seize firearms:

An Illinois mayor has signed an executive order taking up wide-ranging emergency powers that she claims gives her the authority to halt the sale of all firearms and ammunition. The declaration is being framed as a response to the Chinese coronavirus.

Champaign, Illinois Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen signed the declaration Friday morning. The executive order declares a state of emergency in the city, and gives the mayor a wide set of powers to use during the period. The declaration touches upon a wide range of commercial and civic activity as liable to the mayor’s shutdown.

The document uses the phrasing of giving the mayor power to “Order the discontinuance of selling, distributing, dispensing or giving away of explosives or explosive agents, firearms or ammunition of any character whatsoever.”

Mayor Feinen now claims the power to ban gun and ammo sales, the sale of alcohol, the opening of bars and taverns, and the sale of gasoline. The executive order also gives her the power to shut down electrical services and to take possession of private property within the city.

There aren’t any confirmed cases of coronavirus in the city, or in Central Illinois altogether. It’s extremely doubtful that the city of Champaign needs restrictions on gun and ammo purchases.

The city manager claims the city needs to wide-ranging powers “to properly respond to the emergency needs of our community. None of the options will necessarily will be implemented but are available in order to protect the welfare and safety of our community if needed.”

Such policies are reminiscent of disastrous gun confiscation attempts enacted in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, when local law enforcement wasted time rounding up legally owned firearms from private citizens while distressed citizens were ignored.

In addition, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a far-left demagogue who came into office in 2018, has failed to rule out the possibility of martial law in the upcoming weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Could we get to a position where it’s sort of like martial law, where everything is closed and everybody stays home, like it is in Italy, for instance ,where you only have the hospitals and the drug stores open?” radio host Michael Patrick Shiels asked Whitmer when she appeared on his show last week.

“I think we have to make decisions based on where the facts and science dictate,” Whitmer said. “At this juncture it is too early to make any statements — it wouldn’t be responsible to make any statements on that front.”

“I will tell you that every decision we make, we will be transparent about it, what’s driving the decision,” she added. “We will share it as quickly as we can with the public once the decision has been made and we will always put the health and safety of the people of the state first and foremost and that will drive all decisions.”

While Rubio wants people to believe that “marshall law” is not a possibility, the facts show that government overreach is increasing exponentially with coronavirus used as the excuse. The growing tyranny may be a bigger threat to public safety than the coronavirus itself.

WOW: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Caught LYING UNDER OATH about Censorship in Senate Testimony

This is damning.

Published

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is giving testimony to the U.S. Senate today after being subpoenaed over his social media monopoly’s brazen censorship and electoral interference with regards to leaks of Hunter Biden’s embarrassing personal information from the laptop from hell.

Things are not going well for Dorsey, as Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has pointed out. He noted, ironically in a tweet, that Dorsey lied under oath while giving his testimony on Wednesday.

Dorsey told Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) that anyone can now share the Hunter Biden stories from the New York Post on his platform. Individuals on Twitter soon went on Twitter to prove in real time that he was lying.

Other clips from Dorsey’s appearance before the Senate are not much better, as the disheveled tech CEO fluttered in the limelight.

Big League Politics has reported on Twitter’s aggressive role in suppressing the Hunter Biden story, which could be seen as a form of electoral interference considering the censorship campaign is being perpetrated in large part to help his father’s presidential hopes:

A day after censoring the New York Post for exposing Hunter Biden’s emails, Twitter has doubled down by censoring a newly published article that explains Hunter’s crony and possibly illicit business dealings with China.

“Twitter is censoring us — again,” announced Post editor Sohrab Ahmari in a tweet.

“This is what I — an editor at America’s oldest continuously published newspaper, founded by Alexander Hamilton — get when I try to post our follow-up story on Hunter’s financial shenanigans with the Chinese regime,” he added.

When Ahmari attempted to post the article, he received a “Tweet Not Sent” notice that read as follows: “Your Tweet could not be sent because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful. Visit our Help Center to learn more.”

The Post report details Hunter’s interactions with a powerful Chinese energy firm. The revelations in the article indicate that Hunter was receiving millions from Chinese interests because of his name. The Biden campaign is attempting to ignore the scandal while the Big Tech overlords attempt to keep the news from going viral.

“There is no need for comment on any so-called information provided by Rudy Giuliani,” Biden lawyer George Mesires said.

“He has been pushing widely discredited conspiracy theories about the Biden family, openly relying on actors tied to Russian intelligence. His record of dishonesty in these matters speaks for itself,” Mesires added.

Dorsey should be punished to the fullest extent of the law for lying under oath. Big Tech is a bigger threat to democracy than the Russians could ever hope to be.
