Georgia is reopening early.

President Donald Trump stated that he “disagrees strongly” with Governor Brian Kemp’s decision to start reopening many of Georgia’s businesses and institutions at Wednesday press conference, signaling the President isn’t as cavalier in going back to normal as some conservatives and libertarians are while the coronavirus is still inflicting mass casualties.

Watch Trump’s remarks on the reopening here:

Trump revealed that he told Governor Kemp as such directly. Kemp announced that he’d begin reopening businesses such as barber shops and gyms are early as Friday, with restaurants and movie theaters following on Monday.

The President’s remarks suggest he’s far less enthusiastic about the notion of reopening the economy prematurely than some of the most stringent advocates of such an approach. Trump has, however, criticized governors who have taken state of emergency restrictions too far, such as Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer and Minnesota’s Tim Walz.

Trump emphasized that while he disagrees with Kemp’s plan to reopen Georgia’s economy- by far the earliest any state is attempting in the country- he recognizes that Kemp must do what he thinks is right for his state.

The federal government is pushing for reopenings to occur in line with the White House’s three step program, an outline that specifies coronavirus containment objectives for various stages of economic reopening. Trump described many of the facilities Kemp is arranging to reopen as in violation of stage 1 of the federal guidelines for reopening.

President Trump appears set on a cautious and conservative reopening of America’s economic institutions, recognizing that “safety has to predominate.”

Defense Secretary Confirms White House Will Let Cities Burn and Let Mobs Loot Without Military Intervention

The White House seems content to let America burn on their watch.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper has made it clear that the Trump administration will not be intervening with federal forces to put down mobs in cities that have been on fire for days amidst leftist riots and strife.

Esper started his press conference by bemoaning the “horrible crime” committed by police officer Derek Chauvin against serial felon George Floyd in the Minneapolis streets and said all the cops involved should “be held accountable for his murder.”

“With great sympathy, I want to extend the deepest of condolences to the family and friends of George Floyd, for me and the department,” Esper said during a briefing at the Pentagon.

“Racism is real in America, and we must all do our very best to recognize it, to confront it, and to eradicate it,” he added, echoing Black Lives Matter talking points.

Esper made it clear that there are no plans to unleash military on the streets to restore order. He claimed that the emergency going on right now did not indicate the need for this kind of response. Esper is apparently content to let the streets burn, property be destroyed, and law enforcement to be run down in the streets like dogs without intervening.

“The option to use active-duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort and only in the most urgent and dire of situations. We are not in one of those situations now,” Esper said.

Esper should tell that to retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, the 77-year-old man who was gunned down in the streets by rioting savages on Tuesday morning.

Big League Politics reported:

Dorn, who retired from the St. Louis Police Department in 2007, was found dead around 2:30AM on Tuesday morning. Surveillance camera footage revealed that he had been shot and killed by a looter as he was defending Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry.

His wife, Ann Marie Dorn, who still works for the police department, stated that David was a friend of the pawn shop’s owner and would secure the premises when the burglar’s alarm went off at the property. Dorn was 77 years old.

President Donald Trump mourned for Dorn in a Tuesday Facebook post, pointing to the senior citizen as a tragic casualty of the nationwide race riots that have resulted in widespread death and destruction following the death of George Floyd.

Esper should also tell that this situation is not “urgent and dire” to the family of the U.S. Marshal that was shot in the head by a thug and later pronounced deceased during Las Vegas riots on Monday.

Big League Politics reported:

8 News Now Metro of Las Vegas is reporting that a U.S. Marshal has been killed after being shot in the head during Monday’s race riots.

Reports emerged late on Monday that a U.S. Marshal had been killed during a shootout with an armed rioter near the city’s federal courthouse.

8 News Now originally reported that the marshal had been shot in the head. The shooting death appeared to take place after the evening’s protest and riot activities had been contained by law enforcement, perhaps suggesting that an armed rioter intentionally targeted law enforcement in the shooting.

Because of deep state bureaucrats like Esper, President Trump is watching his country descend into chaos and anarchy while doing little other than offering bluster as his nation burns.
