    “Under God”

    How about an EO from DJT saying that all “emergency” funding will IMMEDIATELY be cut off from any State or locality that interferes with the free exercise of religion, by e.g., trying to force their gathering size, distancing or other edicts on Churches?

    Also make clear that the National Guard and/or the military shall not be employed for such purposes.

        The same executive order that creates this church-attending crime also declares that Virginia’s state-owned liquor stores are “essential retail businesses” that “may remain open during their normal business hours.””

              The cellular towers could always track and triangulate on your location if the phone was on and getting signal. The service providers do provide that location to the government upon proper request. If you use a cell phone, you’re being tracked by someone.

              If you are on the internet, you’re being tracked by someone.

              If you are using a VPN, but you aren’t using a clean browser and a virgin/clean OS with nothing installed, and you sign in to anything at all, ever, including your email, everything done on that VPN is tracked back to you.

              If you are using tech in the modern world, you are being tracked. You can avoid it, either by living like it is 1890 up in the mountains somewhere, or if you are extremely, extremely careful with opsec and know more about IT than 99% of people who work in IT departments. If you aren’t in those groups, everything you do is tracked.

      This is a land mine issue at this point. In South Korea, the initial cluster of case started from one mega church. The church members spread all over Korea especially its local city. Over 40% cases came from ppl related to the Church. They were heavily criticized by most Koreans. Now the government started to crack down using the current data. Most Korean agree with the government.

      In PR standpoint it’s not a good move until this is over. The media is our enemy. They will overhype if there’s cluster of cases from a church.
      We need to fight smart. We can still pray and we can still have smaller prayer gathering. We can utilize the current technologies. Just need to be creative and flexible.

        Even constitutional rights can be infringed upon, true. But the review by a court is based on a “strict scrutiny” examination where the premise is that the law is unconstitutional, UNLESS the State can show a compelling reason why an exception can and should be made.

        Here the argument would be that the compelling reason is safety. And that SOUNDS compelling. But is there science to back up the fear? Numbers to support the panic?

        Because we are not seeing waves of dead bodies, it would boil down to a “battle of the experts”, with the State expert predicting X, and the plaintiff’s expert claiming Y, and the Court having to decide which expert is more compelling, in deciding whether our constitutional RIGHTS, made inalienable by God, should be set aside because of a virus. A “battle of the experts” is not compelling. A civil war? THAT’S compelling. And that is why Lincoln could set aside habeus corpus during the civil war. Another inalienable right.

        Is Covid-19 as compelling as the Civil War? If not, then the argument SHOULD be made that these stay-at-home orders are illegal.

    “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

        Frankly, all either has done is destroy our nation while taking nearly everything the vast majority have. The FEdeRAL Beast didn’t get this YUGE without taking from those of us who produce. They even use upward of 70% of the welfare resources for something other than welfare is what I have been told by a “government” employee in a fairly high position.

        A side note: When did the criteria for being a small business mean 500 employees? Most of the small businesses I deal with have less than 10. They will receive no help through this man caused virus crisis that has been released upon the world.

        When “government” was stealing our financial resources (in the trillions at this point, quarterly) we were able to be the most charitable nation on the planet and we were.

      I think those doing the attacking are such cold and timid souls. I often wonder what they think when they look in the mirror. We can escape them by simply walking away, not reading their articles or turning the channel. For them, they can never get away. There is no escape. They have to live with themselves and the shame their actions bring upon themselves. When viewed from that perspective, it makes you feel sorry for those cold and timid souls. As the Southern Ladies say, “Bless their hearts”.

  9. Sounds nice … sounds wonderful … but, isn’t this a “disaster” of our own making? We took the word of a single doctor – who by the way said a very, very different thing a few years ago with regards to the “H1N1 flu” – and shut down our entire country for two weeks. Thereby “necessitating” $2 trillion dollars to fall down from the Congressional sky to save us. (Where, exactly, that money “comes from” is somehow never discussed.)

    “As the minutes march by,” I realize more and more clearly that we were probably hoodwinked. This is not Ebola, or Spanish Flu, or Yellow Fever. Nearly everyone who “tests positive” either has a cold or has absolutely nothing. The number of deaths is considerably smaller than the number of people who unfortunately die from something that is mostly used to “sell flu shots.”

    No – I’m not going to be consoled by yet another patriotic movie-clip. I think it’s time to get some answers here. Hard answers. The kind of answers you really don’t want to give. 😡

    And I would direct them, not only at the “Buck Stops Here™” President – because “the Buck Stops Here” and therefore that’s his job – but more specifically at his phalanx of advisors. I think that a stupendously ill-advised decision was just made here. I want to know how and why.

        Mike Robinson;
        As I have posted previously, I think everyone involved has done a piss poor job of explaining the THREAT this virus poses.
        IMHO, it is NOT the threat to individuals dieing. Which is why comparisons to influenza is meaningless.

        With influenza, within 24 hrs of contracting the disease, and therefore becoming a carrier, you are ‘self-quarantined’, simply because the symptoms send you to bed.
        Therefore, you can only infect, typically, so many people. Therefore, the # of vulnerable people, who contract the disease and because of chronic health issues, require hospitilisation and or die, enter hospitals gradually, over the coarse of the flu season.

        Put another way, the “curve” is naturally and inherently “flattened”.

        While SOME hospitals, during flu season have been known to TEMPORARILY stop taking patients, such patients are diverted to other hospitals, as the TEMPORARILY inundated hospital deals,with the patient overload.

        And, by the way hospital personelle becoming infected IS a priblem, during influenza outbreaks, as well.

        Because the unique covid virus enables infected and therefore contagious people to have no symptoms (and therefore no ‘self-quarantine’ DUE to symptoms) they can infect many more individuals.

        The downstream effect of this is that the, ‘vulnerable population’ are far more likely to become,exposed and infected, IN A MUCH SHORTER PERIOD OF TIME.

        The result is that suddenly Hospitals are overwhelmed with large #’s of critically ill patients, in a relatively (in comparison to influenza) short period of time.

        And, ALL the hospitals in an area, or even in a whole country or region, are in the same boat, so diverting patients isn’t possible.

        A hospital can handle increased patient load, during “flu season” of say (making up #’s here) 50 more patients/day.
        However, 500 patients/day? Not so much.
        To further complicate, critical ill patients from influenza usually just need,”supportive care”; fluids and oxygen, I.v. and mask or cannula.
        Critical patients with CHI-NA virus need much higher level of care; intubation and ventilator.
        Hence,Cuomo saying “We need 30,000 ventilators.
        Typical large hospital has ONE floor of ICU, NOT ALL floors.

        The system simply becomes overwhelmed.
        And, of coarse the hospital is, at the outset full of sick people, many of whom are high risk.

        Anyway, my ‘take’ is that THIS is the risk, and the thinking behind attempting to “flatten the curve”, so that the same # of people (high risk) may well get exposed, enter hospital in critical condition, and possibly even die.

        But, over a longer TIME FRAME, so hospitals can handle the influx.

                Also, once healthcare,system gets overwhelmed, it can’t effectively deal with ANY medical emergencies.

                So, things that otherwise wouldn’t be fatal, heart attacks, etc. become fatal due to the effect of the virus on the hospitals (overwhelmed).

The shutdowns are a result of individual states ordering shutdowns. These shutdowns are not the due to President Trump but due to state and local governments. Everything President Trump is doing is an attempt to keep Americans from going broke as the result of State actions. The businesses that have been harmed due to Federal actions, because of the travel bans, the President has proposed financial aid to keep those businesses from going under. The medical help from the federal government is another matter re: financial help, reduction of regulation, manufacturing of needed items.

      So, those blaming President Trump for the business closures need to take their angst out on the governors, mayors, and county supervisors where the actual blame needs to be placed. This includes the lack of emergency medical supplies, hospital rooms and emergency facilities. Those are the responsibilities of each state. FEMA was not designed or purposed to supply all fifty states with emergency supplies and personnel. Next time you, your family, relatives, and friends vote they need to take all that into consideration as how your tax money is spent is up to those who have been elected. A prime example is New York state. They have lots of solar power that doesn’t work but not enough emergency equipment or space because the governor refused to provide. Now he is blaming everyone but himself and the people of the state are suffering because of it.

    This behavior should show Americans just how much care, compassion and concern that those “politicians” actually have for us.

      “For a people-level review of the issue:”

      Great article, the first thing that came to my mind was these elites like Elon Musk offering to help, but in reality they see this an opportunity to enrich themselves at the public trough.

      The production of medical ventilators is not like tooling up to make simple widgets. By the time people like Mr. Musk get even one made, the crisis will most likely be long over. He does not have a track record worthy of consideration here, IMO. I just look at the boondoggle of a solar energy factory here in Buffalo, NY – thanks to Gov Cuomo it is almost a BILLION dollar waste of taxpayer dollars.

        We done edjumkated two generations of folk who snap to judgement without even checking Wiki. This whole ventilator issue should be addressed as it is, they are lifesaving equipment that’s been largely manufactured overseas and now those manufacturing companies overseas are feeding domestic needs. Once that intricate ventilator comes off a dedicated line it’s tested to death to make sure it works, some company making sump pumps or A/C units when it closes on Friday can’t get the materials and skilled labor to start making ventilators on Monday. Note that the pundits are saying we must redirect companies to manufacture ventilators don’t have the foggiest ideas on which ones. “Oh, all you have to do is get that company to switch to making them! Which one? How about the one behind that tree over there?”.

    WONDERFUL!! I am always heartened when we realizes how great the American people are compared to the negativity of the Chicken Littles screeching 24/7.

    I am in my late 70’s, and have been skiing at 10,000 to 11,000 ft. elevation until the ski industry was shut down a few days ago. My lungs are in great shape, never smoked or used illegal drugs (not even a single joint), had one cold in last 6 years, but I understand that my (hopefully) strong immune system is a problem itself!!! The cytokine storm that fills the lungs with fluid and ends with pneumonia is worst in strong immune systems, typically found in the elderly, who have been exposed to gazillions of bacteria and viruses over decades!!! (I had my first flu shot in 1955!)

    So, ironically, the message is that I should be careful. I am being careful, Mr. President — and raring to go full bore, along with all my fellow Treepers, when you say so!!

      A lot of the “money” was fabricated to begin with, so it didn’t end up in anyone’s pocket.
      If you lost more money than you had in the market, that is a problem, if however you only lost the “gains”, well you really didn’t lose anything but “found” money anyway. It’s all in how you think about it. It is always a gamble, and you never put on the table more than you can afford to lose.
      As far how you will survive the “retirement” being gone, that video should actually make you feel better. That is actually what Americans do for each other. They don’t oppose helping those that need it, they oppose helping those that won’t help themselves.

    Somebody needs to be willing to have a church service with twenty. Get arrested, and go through the legal process so we can start First, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amd challenges to these laws. We need conservative lawyers in these states to step up and file suit in state courts and maybe even federal court.

    That’s how liberals laid the ground work for abortion jurisprudence. Think a law is unconstitutional? Have someone break the law, get arrested, and then the ACLU challenges the conditionality of the law in court, in a pretrial motion. If the motion is denied, and defendant goes to trial and is convicted, or pleads guilty, then they have an issue for appeal, and it’s a juicy issue because it involves the allegation of violating the constitutional of citizens throughout the state. Get the law overturned (ie, Griswold, and others), and now we have a precedent. Then we build on that precedent.

    I don’t live in Virginia, or else I would volunteer my legal services. But someone has to step up and get arrested, so a legal challenge can ensue.

    If we all sit on our ASS*s, and complain about how our rights are being violated, but we comply, then…we also set a precedent.

    Which precedent should we be setting?

        A different perspective: Catholic dioceses around the country have granted their members dispensations from Mass attendance until after the crisis passes. Many churches remained open, for prayer and hearing Confessions- but that is being discontinued in some places.

        Now, there are many who see this as an intrusion of the government, even though this has been a practice for centuries in times of communicable diseases, even before the advent of germ theory.

        The Mass has not stopped- priests all over the country are saying it daily, just without a congregation. We are blessed with the technology to at least pray along.
        (I saw a beautiful Traditional Mass for the feast of the Annunciation today, as it was being celebrated in Switzerland.)

        I think things will go back to normal. Some may even have a greater appreciation for our blessings afterwards. In the meantime, we can offer this up for those around the world who suffer real and violent persecution.

        You can justify compliance any way you want: being smart, being compassionate, whatever. That’s not the point. The point is that these orders come pretty darn close to satisfying a prima facie threshold of evidence needed for a presentation and argument before a court to show that an evidentiary hearing is required to determine if in fact these orders do violate certain constitutional rights.

    “Hold my beer and watch this!”
    Credit to another retired NYS Trooper:
    The reports are that the truckers are getting supplies to the stores. People are stocking the shelves all night and letting old people shop first. Carnival Cruise line told Trump “We can match those big Navy Hospital ships with some fully staffed cruise ships” GM said hold our cars and watch this; we can make those ventilators where we were making cars starting next week. Women and children are making homemade masks and handing out snacks to truckers. Restaurants and schools said, We’ve got kitchens and staff; we can feed kids.” Churches are holding on-line services and taking care of their members and community. NBA basketball players said, “Hold our basketballs while we write checks to pay the arena staff.” Construction companies said, “Here are some masks for the medical staff and doctors”. Breweries are making sanitizer out of the left-over ingredients. We thought we couldn’t live without Baseball, NASCAR, NBA or going to the beach, restaurants or a bar. Instead, we’re trying to keep those businesses open by ordering take-out. And many are making a difference by just being still, a virtue thought to be lost.

    What communist China didn’t count on was America saying “Hey, hold my beer and watch this.”

    I think a Japanese Admiral in the middle of the Pacific said it best in 1941, “I think we have awakened a sleeping giant.”
