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:
Please stop spreading stupid rumors about marshall law.
We will continue to see closings & restrictions on hours of non-essential businesses in certain cities & states. But that is NOT marshall law.

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.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Comes Out in Favor of ‘Awesome, Incredible, Beautiful and Wonderful’ Trans Children
AOC at her dumbest and most dangerous.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has come out explicitly in favor of transgender children and denigrated Republicans for being concerned about children being abused by child-grooming enthusiasts.
“Trans kids are awesome, incredible, beautiful, and wonderful. Bigotry is not,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet.
“Republicans need to stop obsessing over other people’s gender identity bc frankly it’s very weird and they’re doing a lot of harm to children who are just trying to be themselves,” she added, finishing her inane post with the hashtag #LetThemPlay.
A screenshot of the tweet can be seen here:
While dullards like Ocasio-Cortez may believe that transgender children are merely expressing themselves, the fact of the matter is that children are being indoctrinated and recruited into a dangerous lifestyle by degenerates.
Big League Politics has reported extensively on how the transgender community is abusing children, with footage from HBO’s Transhood documentary series illustrating the depravity of this movement:
A new HBO television show “Transhood” is demonstrating the inner workings of the youth LGBT movement and the depths of their depravity and perversion.
One clip features a butch lesbianic woman and her “daughter” Avery, and it shows exactly how children are being systemically abused by pederasts.
“We actually go and meet with our senators and our representatives, and after that, we go and sit and sell some of Avery’s books for a little while,” the ghoulish woman said of her daughter who she uses as a political prop.
This is when Avery expressed the sentiment that she does not want to be exploited for the pleasure of reprobates.
“I just don’t want to even have a book. I’ve done too much in this world. It’s ruined my life enough and now, everyone in this world is going to know if I sell my book, it’s going to get on the news along with me for like the 50th time at this point, and it’s going to make my life worse,” Avery said.
“A couple of years ago, you wanted people to know,” the “mother” responded.
“Yeah, I did, but I know that was a stupid, silly mistake and now I don’t,” Avery said…
Avery’s words show how transgender children can be pushed into that lifestyle by outside forces and then come to regret their actions after they mature.
Any nation, civilization or people that will accept their children being victimized by predators on a widespread scale does not deserve to exist. The idiocy of AOC and other “empowered women” could result in a new dark age.
