State Government “Stay at Home” Orders Expanding – Nothing Quite Grabs Your Attention Like a Convoy of Humvees Driving Down Main Street…

Comrade citizens, if you don’t believe there are local, state and federal contingency plans to activate the National Guard as a police authority you have not paid close attention over the past three decades.  However, nothing quite grabs attention like a convoy of Humvees and MWRAPS driving though Main Street…

In this small example of what is happening on a national scale, Illinois State Police and Chicago police prepare to enforce Governor  Pritzker’s “stay-at-home” order.  WATCH:

.

Watch for the words: “opportunity”, “challenges” and “support” when used within a sentence that describes the deployment of the national guard.

    At the Ricochet blog there was post from an American who has been living in South Korea. South Korea has seemingly stopped the Covid -19 contagion in it’s tracks. It’s key was to test thoroughly from the beginning which the CDC pukes refused to do and still may not be doing as they then.

    But the stunning part of the post was the information that South Korea except for one city, Daegu which was partially shut down, did not shut down like California, New York, Illnois, New Jersey and PA are doing. Not even close! Businesses continued to operate and they got through it. So exactly why are we shutting all these business that are going to collapse the economy and force millions of small business into bankruptcy and throw millions out of work permanently?

    Trump needs to investigate what he can do to get these states up and running again. Right now. This is a totalitarian commie power play to put millions more on the dole and to expand government beyond anything anyone could imaging. It needs to stop. People’s rights are being thrown in the trash on the flimsy excuse of a Covid-19 contagion where like my county of LA, a county of only 15 million people there are 294 cases out of 15 million people with only 2 deaths and the damn place is shut down!

      S.Korea has 172 cases per 1M population … the US has 59 cases per 1M population. Sadly, we have allowed out society and culture to be ruled by incomplete statistics. This has been going on for years in ALL arenas of our life. Statistics “prove” coffee causes bladder cancer … wait … another statistical “study” just proved coffee prevents bladder cancer. These “studies” are all mostly rubbish. All based on horribly incomplete statistics, and rarely and REAL medical or scientific analysis. And I won’t even get started on CAGW with all their mathematical “projections” and predictions.

      We have been calling statistical analyses … “science”. Sorry. It’s NOT science. And it will be the death of our culture and societies. It’s coming close now with this Coronavirus … and it may still destroy us yet

      We’re shutting down because we don’t have tests and masks. We’ll stay shut down until we do.

      We need to be doing 250,000+ tests per day and have results immediately like in under 1 hour. Tests that Fauci talked about / approved takes 24-48 hours.

      Also, Korea has masks. They use masks in their daily lives and likely every home has a box in their linen/storage closet. The US doesn’t have enough for hospitals. And Americans would have very poor compliance.

      Can’t do Korea model if no one has masks. Can’t do it if you don’t have rapid widespread tests.

        So early on I bought 2 masks which induced ridicule from everyone. They said that masks don’t work. I’ve been in healthcare for over 50 years and here’s my uninformed take… If someone sneezes on you, masks help, masks prevent you from touching your nose and mouth, we ALWAYS wore masks for infection control. I believe they have to save them for first-responders, health workers, and those infected etc. So, ya, masks “Don’t ” work. I expect a lot of flack from y’all, but as I said, my Uninformed OPINION.

        For the haters and bitchers, this situation is unprecedented and as Pres reminded us, the old system was unworkable. Trump is doing his absolute best and who but the CDC was he supposed to trust? Now the political craziness of their chiefs comes out and it’s a whole new ballgame. Poor Trump.

      Tienanmen square is actually a great example because the Chinese regular military refused to fire on the students and protestors. So the Chinese government had to call out for assistance from the Mongolian divisions to arrive in Beijing. That’s when the shooting started.

      Lessons were learned around the globe about what the military would and would not likely do if given orders against their citizens.

      Fast forward two decades later…. History repeats.

      Remember 2013 Egypt under Morsi’s rule?…. and a single well-respected Egyptian general named Abdel Fattah al-Sisi would not allow the Eqyptian military to fire on citizens in/around Cairo.

    More facts, please.

    First, like it or not a Governor does have an obligation which includes ensuring public safety and good order for all citizens.

    Between State Police (or some variation of Highway Patrol), county Sheriffs and State-activated National Guard forces, these are means to ensure this.

    For me, if you have humongous cities filled with hundreds of thousands of citizens who may already be on the ragged edge of sanity and patience –

    -if you are tracking reports of panic hoarding of TP and Mac and Cheese –

    – if you know with social media there is no place to hide for “that Governor” who makes 99 correct decisions, only to have #100 blow up in his face –

    – some of your Guard troops ARE trained in medical matters and who desire to serve and assist citizens who find themselves in a situation pretty much unknown to all us , and –

    – said Guard forces are actually your neighbors, co-workers, family members, who have training and equipment and a willingness to stand up and do the long hours of thankless work –

    Then I’m actually surprised we are only seeing (at this moment) small scale, tailored deployment. Yes, it could be for evil.

    But for now let’s pray for the best outcomes for all. For all in authority to exercise their work with wisdom and compassion. Even if a Governor doesn’t seem worth our respect, their work can be a heavy responsibility even in the best of times…

    Know too, most state National Guard forces may ultimately also be activated under Federal command and authority, removing them from any legitimate civil aid or even law enforcement role.

    Judging from the “RED CROSSES” on allot of the vehicles in this convoy, this is a MEDICAL Unit. Note to the military un-initiated, nearly 2/3 of the US Army’s logistical support assets are National Guard Units. If a governor wants to deploy extra medical, police and engineering assets he calls out the National Guard in his state. If a governor is going to declare a state of emergency and has a real or perceived MAJOR problem (like a natural disaster or virus epidemic) overwhelming the civilian assets in a specific area he CALLS OUT THE NATIONAL GUARD.

    I am surprised this was not done earlier and is likely one of the “local” remedies the governors had available and were reminded to use by the President. In fact the President did the governors a favor by not calling the Guard into Federal Service to do the same thing, thus depriving them of an asset at state level.

    Everybody hyperventilating over this needs to step back, learn something about military organizations and relax before going nuts over a non-issue. As I said, this is a prudent move if in fact there is a medical and crime surge issue overwhelming a specific area in a state. It is also good political theater (democrat or republican) for the state politicians to point at as proof of direct action.

      Reasonable observations.

      Yet I also think this a demonstration of force to deter looting. In video Pritzker mentions something about staging near grocery stores.

      Now the reasons for this could be several: grocery stores are a logical staging point since they are one of few high occupancy services still operating and are usually centrally located; officials are anticipating social unrest over food rationing; or officials are concerned about looting since many businesses, in fact entire business and commercial districts, are essentially ghost towns right now.

      I don’t like any of this. Any of it. And I’ don’t like Pritzker. I can see the arguments for the slippery slope. But we have to keep our heads on. We need them..

    This is a bio-weapon test. Remember the Korean war? They attacked in groups of seven chi-coms but only one had a gun. When he fell his comrade took up the weapon and continued. They came in waves as locusts. Their leadership doesn’t care about human life – hell, they got 1.3 Billion to play with!!!
    They see that they decimate the western nations economies with a mostly targeted bio-weapon of those with Euro-genes. China will demure and say “look it happened to us too.”
    But as they see how it works, rinse/repeat next year with a more potent corona virus.
    But they will shut down ALL access to China immediately after they use their suicide ‘heroes of the motherland’ to go abroad. Their excuse is too avoid what happened the previous year. By time the West figures it out, Western civilization collapses and the Chinese have conquered the world. Oh, by the way the virus will have a “kill switch” after so many mutations – so as not to blow back on the Chi-coms.

      Entirely possible; they employ every means to dominate. How do we prove it was engineered? That is the central problem for understanding how to fight against it.

      With so many of our elected officials and government leaders bought by the Chinese, we need to hound them to work in our interest.

      Call your senators and representatives over the use of the stimulus bill to import more H-iB Chinese and Indians, and in the Senate, McConnell is pushing for allowing 500,000 more wealthy Chinese (who got wealthy by being high-ranking Party members) to immigrate here.

    The state governments are going to get bitten huge by their overreaction. Chicago doesn’t feed Chicago. As the shelves go empty, and the unprepared and unemployed go looking for food, where are they going to go. The over reaction is creating shortages. Those shortages are going to turn desperate people into dangerous people. And then, to make matters worse, the people who could feed the desperate are going to be given cease and desist orders, it sounds like.

    My son looked at me with raised eyebrows when I got back from the local gunsmith this morning.

    I asked him, “If there’s no food in the store, where does that mean the food is?”

    “People’s houses.”

    “Yes. OUR house. What is your plan if someone tries to kick down the front door? The police have already said they’re not coming for burglaries and theft.”

    The IL governor knows how people are going to react in places where food supplies are thin. It’s not an accident that gun stores are on his list if “essential” businesses.

    I saw a police car parked outside the grocery store today. Off to the side so it is visible, but not obstructing traffic.

    Inside the store, you can see the worried looks in people’s faces. They’re frightened.

    Not of the virus…of the government’s response to it at the state level…of their fellow citizens who are hoarding.

    What are those people going to do when the money runs out then the food runs out?

    Every twist of the vice tightens the supply chain in unexpected ways.

      Reagan didn’t coin that statement, but it bears repeating.

      Living with our government is like being stuck in a dysfunctional family in a divorce situation. The Democrats are like a bad mommy, and the Republicans are like a bad daddy. Take your pick and vote for either. Either way, you lose. Some judge will probably ultimately decide your fate.

          RE: “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

          Good question. I couldn’t find the answer on Google. But I remember hearing that phrase when I was a kid – and that’s long before Reagan was president. I suspect it comes from welfare programs that were advanced by LBJ’s Great Society. Government workers were sent to rural places like Appalachia to promote welfare assistance to those who were too proud and wary of government to want to take welfare payments. Either that, or similarly, the skepticism in response might have originated with an earlier generation, such as FDR’s Home Relief program.

    In Arizona, those National Guard trucks could easily be in service to assist with food delivery to grocery stores and food banks.

    “The Arizona National Guard is proud to support the governor’s robust, integrated action plan to serve local communities in light of the spread of COVID-19 virus. Our Guard members take this mission seriously as they are from the cities and towns we are about to serve. Domestic response is part of what we do as we’ve demonstrated in emergencies such as airport security after 9/11, Monument Fire in 2011, Havasupai Floods in 2018 and Hurricane Harvey in 2017. We will communicate frequently as we define our requirements to support the logistical supply chain system.”

    WA Gov Inslee complaining that Spokane is not following orders! People are NOT staying at home as he has demanded dammit, he knows this based on traffic bcz there has only been a 20% reduction. Curse you conservative eastern Washingtonians!
    Now I live in Idaho-just next door to Spokane so lots of travel back & forth btwn states. We don’t seem to be in such a lockdown. Our Gov hasn’t gone off the cliff yet.
    My Costco has food & people shopping, some restaurants are still open, people are out and those I’ve run into are not afraid.
    But of course we have the freak outs conned by the media and Gov Inslee forcing his will on us by way of proximity. Not to mention we have all the WA folks running over here to get their stuff.
    Big brother is watching – act accordingly or else!
    I refuse to live my life in fear.
