Escalating Quickly: Hoboken NJ Announces City-Wide Enforced Coronavirus Curfew – All Citizens Must Stay in Their Homes 10pm to 5am…

Telling people to remain calm and simultaneously forcing people to remain in their homes would seem to be a contradiction in messaging; potentially only worsening the panic.  However, this is one of those, “well, yes it’s unconstitutional except when….” moments, that may have rather profound consequences.

The Democrat mayor of Hoboken New Jersey has announced a mandatory curfew between 10pm and 5am where all residents are not permitted to exit their residence; and all bars must close due to the coronavirus.

I don’t know if this is the first ‘mandatory’ coronavirus curfew, or even how such an effort could feasibly be enforced, but it’s likely not going to be the last:.

New Jersey – 10:45pm ETHoboken Mayor Ravinder Bhalla announced a citywide curfew will be in effect starting Monday. The curfew also places major restrictions on bars and restaurants.

The curfew will be in effect from 10 p.m.- 5 a.m.starting on Monday, and until further notice.  Residents will be required to stay home, except for emergencies, or if needed at work by their employer.

As of 11 a.m. Sunday, bars that do not serve food will not be permitted to operate at all. All other bars and restaurants are no longer permitted to serve food within the establishment, and can only sell takeout or delivery. (read more)

    Actually, this is better than a speed trap, to make up city revenue. The police will not arrest anyone, but will issue citations. While unconstitutional, you have to give them an A for effort to raise money aside from raising taxes.

      Could be a trial balloon for nationwide martial law. By declaring a “national emergency”; Trump has triggered everything that implies including extraordinary executive powers.

      According to a source; this was never about the COVID-19 but they needed a reason to give authority to declare an emergency.

      This was about the possibly imminent collapse of the financial sectors. Just one of the indicators, look at Boeing; it is on life support, and being part of the “too big to fail” companies; they will need to be rescued with massive bailouts. Boeing just recently took all the $billions$ in credit it could muster for a last ditch effort to try and stay afloat before congress has to act. With all the 737s grounded, it is hemorrhaging money. The leasing companies and the airlines who lease them are also obviously effected. And the planes still have to undergo annual inspections at great $$expense.
      Last year, starting around September, the Fed began pumping trillions into the economy ($6 T. in December alone) for no apparent reason; we weren’t told that we were in a recession like 2008-2009; so why was this happening? It’s starting to be clear; it’s about the global markets and banks.

      Europe is about a week or more ahead of us and has already begun to shut down the whole continent practically. We will follow soon, as these areas like here in this article and in Illinois the leaders are pushing for martial laws and curfews to stem the tide of panic.
      So there needed to be a “legitimate” sounding reason, such as a threat to health and safety, for a president, or leader, to declare a “national emergency” (with implications of “martial law” enforcement) that would not appear finance related; or people would have made a run on the banks in a click of a mouse; so the Covid-19 was the answer. (All so far opinion).
      But, to be pre-cautious, the recommendation to me was have a few $thousand at home, if this thing actually goes “worse case”. The banks, digital and ATMs may shut down and debit cards may be placed on hold; also according to my source.

      But most of all pray and trust God. If you don’t have a relationship with God through His Son, our Savior the Lord Jesus Christ; there’s no time like the present. Seek Him in prayer by faith, humbly repent of your sins, and believe, by agreeing Him with all that He has done and said in His word, and He will receive you and bring you into His family and kingdom. The most obedient thing a person can do is believe God and His gospel concerning His Son Jesus.
      God bless you all and keep you safe.

    This makes no sense. So now you are forcing people to be out and about at the same time?

    Didn’t know the virus lurked in shadows under the cover of darkness to infect and spread when fewer people are out moving around. That’s one sinister virus. Probably robs a ffew convenience stores too.

    This pandemic situation is just about the most confusing thing I’ve experienced in my life. There are two elements of it that stand out.

    1/ Reality and truth… I have searched high and low for information from experts. One camp asserts the situation overhyped and while serious for elderly is not otherwise that serious, the other side asserts we are under-reacting to an extremely serious situation and they point at Wuhan, Iran, and Italy. As a technical person, I find the mathematics behind the serious situation argument to be solid. On the other hand, the data from the US is not strongly supporting the models and predictions. The rate of spread and deaths are not matching up to what is supposed to be happening. You can argue we are learning from others’ mistakes or that our situation is different (eg, more young people, less smoking). In my opinion it’s too early to solidly conclude anything but something smells fishy to me.

    The above re the true situation re this virus is independent of what is happening in the media. There is no doubt the media is leveraging this to bash Trump at every turn. That the media is propagating considerable disinformation is undeniable. I think the obvious efforts of the media almost necessarily had to be resisted by the Trump administration, unfortunately leaving many, including me, confused.

    The interesting question for me is whether the conflict over the truth seen here is just our condition or whether this could ever be “fixed” in any meaningful sense. Can or should the media ever become non-partisan? Having trustworthy information is beneficial and saves lives, but the cost of investing trust in a media elite or governmental organization is obviously way too high. Does truth survive competition in social media? Doesn’t seem like it because right now half the people believe one thing, half the other. The truth will only be known after the dead are counted, and even then…

    2/ Globalization…Pandemics are by definition global events. Are we now so interconnected that they require a coordinated global response? Are we shooting off our own toes by leaving trading partners to deal with their own problems? This is clearly the argument that the globalists would want us to believe. They would argue that we should invest in global organizations to manage these events. If we don’t, we’ll suffer the consequences. I’d argue…hmmm…the last really serious pandemic was 1918 and that seems to indicate serious pandemic are a pretty unlikely event, therefore why cede sovereignty to global organizations. I trust my own country to worry about my best interests, not some global elites who are more worried about global social justice and I’ll just take the risk of global economic impact.

    Here’s the really creepy thing. There was a simulation of a global corona virus outbreak at Johns Hopkins in OCTOBER 2019. Here are links to press and a video they produced based on the simulation.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/press-releases/2019-10-16/johns-hopkins-center-for-health-security-world-economic-forum-and-bill-melinda-gates-foundation-host-pandemic-exercise-and

    I have to admit I often see conspiracies where there are none…its just too easy for me to see things connect in ways that likely aren’t really connected in reality. But when I watch that video and hear the remarks in media today which are nearly identical…well my conspiracy flag just pops up. If there weren’t so much evidence that these people actually believe and employ their philosophy about “the greater good” it would be much harder to suspect anything. But the folks participating in that simulation think they’re the saviors of all humanity, our moral avatars, THE global leaders…I can easily some how some subgroup of them could act to trigger this thing as a way to get Trump and to instruct the rest of us about the NEED for globalism….Am I completely crazy, or what?

      In the coronavirus pandemic we have the confluence of two phenomenon: One medical and scientific, one political.

      First, medical and scientific. COVID-19 is a serious infectious disease that causes pneumonia at a high rate. If there are many cases of pneumonia at the same time it will overwhelm hospitals’ capacity to provide ventilators and respiratory support. People will die. Lots of people.

      Second, the response has been politicized. No politician -particularly in the US – wants to be accused of doing too little, so everyone is going overboard so as not to be outdone.

      Thus, the spectacle of states and municipalities with zero or one case going into full panic mode lockdown.

      Let’s start with the “truth” about COVID-19. The truth is that this is a new corona virus. Therefor we have no therapeutic regimens established for it. We have no vaccine for it. and we have no wide spread natural immunity to it…Yet.

      Now, just how serious is this virus? Well, so far, we have only guesses, as we have no solid facts on the number of infected and our mortality rate is based largely upon the , elderly high-risk population who required hospitalization and a third of the death from this group having come from a single elderly living facility in a single state. With the revised mortality rate, from South Korean sources, of 0.17%, this translates to about 170,000 deaths if 4.5 million people actually contract the virus [the usual amount of people who contract influenza a and b every year]. While this seems high, it is only slightly higher than the number of fatalities from common household accidents every year [~160,000] and only three times the number of deaths from automobile accidents and a severe influenza season. But, the mortality rate, for COVID-19, has been steadily decreasing as we get more information and more cases are identified. And, with the generation of natural immunity, effective therapeutic treatments and a vaccine, this should drop even lower; possibly significantly so.

      Globalization. The US constitutes 27% of the consumer market in the entire world. Through modernization, we can not only produce enough goods to satisfy our home market, without imports, and we can also produce sufficient goods for export. Now, while a production system which solely services a home market, is largely a stagnant system, it is sustainable for a very long time. What happened in the late 1990s and early 2000s was that production capability in the US was sent off-shore. But, most of the production, from these industries, was returned to the US market for sale, at a significant mark-up. Then we have the domestic economy. The domestic economy also depends upon the American people spending money on services provided by Americans, especially small businesses. Restaurants, entertainment venues, profession and craft services, etc.all depend upon Americans to patronize them for them to survive. And, many of these businesses operate on a narrow profit margin. If the American consumer stays home, these businesses fail and many jobs are lost.

      COVID-19 will likely turn out to be another flash in the pan apocalyptic disease, on the order of SARS, Swine Flu, Bird Flu and the Measles. The damage that the media induced panic over causes it could have severe impacts upon the US economy for years to come, if it continues long enough. Would the globalist elite like that? Yes. So, while there may or may not be a conspiracy to unleash this virus, a global economic downturn, especially one which drive people to allow for more government control, is desirable to a large segment of the Global elite.

    “They will bring with them the principles of the governments they leave, imbibed in their early youth; or, if able to throw them off, it will be in exchange for an unbounded licentiousness, passing, as is usual, from one extreme to another. It would be a miracle were they to stop precisely at the point of temperate liberty. These principles, with their language, they will transmit to their children. In proportion to their numbers, they will share with us the legislation. They will infuse into it their spirit, warp and bias its directions, and render it a heterogeneous, incoherent, distracted mass.”
