The National Guard has announced that there are over 1,500 guardsman who have been deployed in 22 states across the country due to the coronavirus outbreak that is causing mass hysteria.
In the state of New York, guardsman “have been working with state and local officials to distribute food, disinfect public spaces and help run mobile screening facilities.”
“The community is extremely happy that we’re out here,” said Army Sgt. Corey Smith, with the New York Army Guard’s 1156th Engineer Company, in a press release. “They’ve been sharing stories with us about how tough it’s been for them getting food at the grocery store.”
“We’re all very happy to be here,” he added. “We’re just here to help out, hand out food and make sure everybody feels comfortable and safe.”
The National Guard is touting its reaction as proof that they are serving the American people, but skeptics are worried that the additional troop presence in the U.S. streets creeps the vulnerable nation ever closer to martial law.
Those fears have compounded by self-serving liberal bureaucrats using the crisis as a means to push Draconian public policy that they have supported for many years.
Big League Politics has reported on local bureaucrats using coronavirus panic to usurp the power to strip firearms:
New Orleans is the latest American city to declare a state of emergency that gives the mayor to suspend gun sales at her discretion.
Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s declaration of a state of emergency gives her office the power “if necessary, to suspend or limit the sale of alcoholic beverages, firearms, explosives, and combustibles.” The order was drafted last week.
Cantrell also now has the authority to suspend the distribution and sale of alcoholic beverages.
The order is ironic, considering New Orleans’ troubled history with emergency gun confiscation. City police enacted gun confiscation operations targeting law-abiding everyday citizens in the aftermath of 2005’s Hurricane Katrina, fueling into panic and blunting the effectiveness of hurricane response.
Other liberals in positions of power have used the coronavirus as an excuse to empty jails and stop prosecuting basic crimes:
On March 17, 2020, a Sacramento County judge authorized the Sheriff’s Office to release prisoners who have 30 days or less left in their sentences.
Abbie VanSickle, a staff writer at The Marshall Project, tweeted, “BREAKING: Sacramento County judge authorizes the Sheriff’s Office to release jail inmates with 30 days or less remaining in their sentences. Ordered signed today and in effect until May 30. Includes misdemeanors and felonies. @MarshallProj”
… According to the LA Times, the Los Angeles County Sheriff has already started releasing inmates in an attempt to stop the Wuhan virus from spreading. The department is also reducing the number of people they plan on taking into custody.
If Sacramento County fully follows through with this, people hope the prisoners have somewhere to stay at.
“I think if they have homes that should definitely be a factor. I think if they don’t have homes than where would they go?“ said Jessica Jarrety.
The radical Left is fully taking advantage of this crisis to unleash their radical, anarcho-tyrannical experiments on the rest of the populace.
The liberal response to coronavirus may turn out to be even more harmful to public safety than the pandemic itself, with martial law looking like a real possibility.
President Trump is ‘Terminating’ Relationship with Disgraced W.H.O., Punishing China for Hong Kong Takeover
Trump is striking back against the globalists.
President Donald Trump announced today that he will be “terminating” the relationship between the disgraced World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. as well as cutting off special trade advantages given to Hong Kong after China seized control of the formerly semi-autonomous city.
“We have detailed the reforms that it must make and engaged with them directly, but they have refused to act,” the president said from the White House. “Because they have failed to make the requested and greatly needed reforms, we will be today terminating the relationship.”
Trump claims that he will be “redirecting” the funds that previously went to the WHO toward “other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs.” He also said China “ignored” their obligations to the WHO when they spread disinformation to them about the nature of the coronavirus.
The WHO taking China at their word resulted in this embarrassing tweet that serves as an eternal reminder of the extreme incompetence of the globalist body:

Trump is also putting the squeeze on Hong Kong following China’s announcement that they will be taking additional power over the city that has rebelled against the red menace throughout the past year.
“I am directing my administration to begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions that give Hong Kong different and special treatment,” Trump said at the same press conference.
“My announcement today will affect the full range of agreements that we have with Hong Kong, from our extradition treaty, to our export controls and technologies,” Trump added. “We will take action to revoke Hong Kong’s preferential treatment as a separate customs and travel territory from the rest of China.”
“No reasonable person can assert today that Hong Kong maintains a high degree of autonomy from China, given facts on the ground,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement after delivering a report to Congress indicating that Hong Kong has been usurped by China.
The president also said he will instruct his “presidential working group on financial markets to study the different practices of Chinese companies listed on the U.S. financial markets, with a goal of protecting American investors.”
“Investment firms should not be subjecting their clients to the hidden and undue risks associated with financing Chinese companies that do not play by the same rules,” Trump said, adding that “Americans are entitled to fairness and transparency.”
President Trump is getting tough on China and the WHO now that the coronavirus pandemic has subsided a bit. He has not let the crisis distract him from his agenda of ending globalism and putting America first.
