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
Supreme Court Overturns NY Cuomo’s Coronavirus Restrictions on Houses of Worship
Religious freedom restored.
The US Supreme Court has overturned New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s coronavirus restrictions on houses of worship, preventing the state from enforcing limits on attendance at religious services.
The decision was reached by a 5-4 ruling on Wednesday night, with recently-confirmed Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett proving to be a decisive vote on overruling the restrictions. Bush administration appointee John Roberts joined progressive judges in voting to allow Cuomo to restrict attendance at religious services.
The ruling justices issued a majority opinion which identified the religious restrictions as a violation of the First Amendment not otherwise applied to “essential” businesses.
Cuomo’s 10 and 25-person occupancy restrictions were decided to “single out houses of worship for especially harsh treatment,” with justices pointing to a lack of restrictions on other institutions. Catholics of the Diocese of Brooklyn and Orthodox Jews had united in a lawsuit challenging the restrictions, which New York has recently sought to walk back of its own accord. Andrew Cuomo had applied no such restrictions to arbitrary businesses allowed to open, such as acupuncture and nail salons. Meanwhile, religious organizations have been required to turn away worshipers at their doors.
It’s not up to governors to dictate to American citizens whether or not they can attend religious services. Some things are simply best determined by personal conscience, as opposed to governmental mandates.
