The U.S. and the rest of the world have been completely on edge since the Wuhan Virus outbreak.
The numbers from China have not been very transparent and there have been many questions raised about the viability of an economic world order based on radical globalization.
Most relevant is how policymakers have responded to this outbreak.
China has obviously taken draconian measures, which have included a complete lockdown of the city of Wuhan.
In America, there has been a divided response over the pandemic. Some red states like South Dakota have taken a really hands-off approach while states like California have put statewide shelter orders.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson declared that “Our leaders chose the Chinese model. With every passing day, their response becomes more restrictive: Requests that people stay indoors have become orders. People are being fined and arrested for driving alone, playing catch in the park and paddle boarding on the ocean.”
He then put forward a question that most politicians refuse to answer:
How are these measures keeping us safe? The short answer is, we don’t know that they are. As noted, we still don’t know much of anything. We’re definitely not encouraged to ask about it.
Now, Dr, Anthony Fauci, the de facto “face of coronavirus response” is now floating the idea of using internal passports, which Carlson believes is “a feature of life familiar to the population of mainland China: Internal passports.”
When asked about this proposal, Fauci said, “That’s possible. It’s one of those things that we talk about when we want to make sure we know who the vulnerable people are. This is something that’s being discussed, I think it might actually have some merit under certain circumstances.”
Carlson painted the following scenario:
Your papers, please. Imagine a country where illegal immigrants can work, drive, get welfare, and vote, all without a single authentic document. Meanwhile, 300 million legal citizens must produce government papers to prove their right to go outside. That’s where we’re headed, and with remarkable speed.
The Fox News highlighted the examples of Michigan and Vermont, which have taken heavy-handed measures to combat the virus:
In Michigan, Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has ordered the few stores still open to fence off areas that offer furniture, paint or home improvement goods. Whitmer considers these “non-essential” items, so she’s prohibiting their sale.
The governor of Vermont has issued similar orders for stores there. Other places will doubtless follow their lead. What’s the rationale for this? Wouldn’t closing off more sections of a store increase crowding in the areas that remain open?
Carlson has been a voice of reason throughout the Trump administration.
He understands the dangers of globalism and why it’s not in the best interests of Americans to embrace mass migration and so-called “free trade.”
At the same time, Americans shouldn’t have to give up their freedoms and livelihoods because of the political class’s errors — Such as opening up trade with China.
When it’s all said and done, Carlson will be remembered as one of the greatest voices for American nationalism in the 21st century
NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.
Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
