NBC News Analyst Claims U.S. Lock-Down Protests Created by Russians…

Oddly enough I thought about this yesterday when Washington State Governor Jay Inslee was complaining about citizen protests being a form of “domestic rebellion.”  The modern liberal mindset cannot fathom how removing liberty and freedom, from a nation founded upon freedom and liberty, would start to ignite protests.  They need to blame something.

In the Democrat collective worldview big government control of their lives is a utopia to be achieved. Therefore those same Chè T-shirt wearing ideologues cannot understand push-back based on individualism.  A justification for visible frustration is needed.  What could possibly be causing this anger?…  Why yes, the Russians of course. Gottabe.

Barb McQuade is an NBC legal analyst and law professor at the University of Michigan. We can only imagine the pretzel logic taught by her during her indoctrination efforts.

All of the various restrictions coming from state governors in response to the COVID-19 do not come from State House and/or State Senate debate and decisions. These are not laws.

The rules restricting liberty, in response to the COVID crisis, have been pronounced without any representative voice supporting them.

All of the rules are arbitrary, and many of these rules will be challenged in court.

However, until those court challenges take place, the only option for a redress of grievance comes in the form of public protest. Currently, there is no way for an citizen to appeal to a representative voice against the decrees from a state governor; other than a public protest.

Boise, Idaho More than 1,000 protesters gathered at the Idaho Statehouse Friday afternoon in defiance of Gov. Brad Little’s extension of the statewide stay-at-home order.

[…] “I can’t get a haircut, but by golly I was able to walk into Pet Smart this morning and get my dog a grooming appointment. It defies logic,” said Wayne Hoffman, president of the Idaho Freedom Foundation. “The damage that’s being done to the individuals, to businesses and the economy is horrific.”

Hoffman said the governor should allow all businesses to open to give owners a chance to demonstrate that they can take appropriate steps to mitigate the risk.

“I worry that if we don’t adapt our approach that we will continue to battle COVID-19 in incremental ways for weeks, months and years to come,” Hoffman said. “It’s like a lot of other variables that you have to deal with in the world – people with all kinds of ailments come to your doors.”

Most at the protest were standing shoulder-to-shoulder and not wearing masks. Some carried signs claiming the coronavirus is a hoax, while others held signs with slogans like, “All workers are essential” and “Freedom not fear.”

The effect of the coronavirus on the economy has been dire. In Idaho, nearly 96,000 people have filed for unemployment since Little first declared a state of emergency on March 13. That’s far more than the number of claims filed in Idaho during all of 2019.

Similar protests have been held across the country, with groups pushing back against stay-at-home orders in places like Michigan, Texas and Virginia. Dozens circled Oregon’s state Capitol in their vehicles Friday to protest that state’s stay-at-home order.  (read more)

Rebellion against unilateral and authoritarian power is America. Rebellion or push-back against non-representative government is the thread connecting the patchwork of our constitutional republic. Protest is so critical to our nation that it is protected within the very first amendment to our constitution.

It just cannot be real that freedom and liberty is the heart of America as NBC legal analyst Barb McQuade thinks about it…


Pesky Russians.  Gottabe!

      1. Mueller’s Report has the same validity as the Predicate for the Mueller Report. Zero.
      2. The “Dossier” and the “Report” were some of the few things that formal Washington still allowed to be Made in the USA. 100% excrement from the DNC/FBI/ U.S. Media, with a few foreigners as stalking horses.

    Orwell’s Animal Farm: “Whenever anything went wrong it became usual to attribute it to Snowball. If a window was broken or a drain was blocked up, someone was certain to say that Snowball had come in the night and done it, and when the key of the store-shed was lost, the whole farm was convinced that Snowball had thrown it down the well. Curiously enough, they went on believing this even after the mislaid key was found under a sack of meal.”

    So the question is, is Snowball’s real name Donald or Vlad?

        Where have our brains gone?

        Down the same rabbit’s hole as our communal institutional memory, our God-given liberty (the price paid for free will), and our democratic republican – deliberately lower case – Constitution.

        Shame on us all if this be true.

        The judgement of the Lord sometimes falls on an entire people for their joint want of faith and evil acts; regardless of this, salvation is strictly a one-on-one transaction between God and each individual soul based on merit by His account; praises be for His boundless love and saving Grace. Lord knows we do and shall need both.

    As the DNC was deceiving much of the nation, it also continued to trick a good many of its own willfully blind followers. The scapegoat was yet again Bad Vlad. Whenever anything went wrong for the DNC, it became usual to attribute it to Bad Vlad. In fact many of their claims begin to sound completely ridiculous to the objective mind. Of course, the DNC’s minions in the Shill Squealer Media Propaganda Ministry’s mission is to keep everything clouded and misdirected in the minds of their sheeple as they are led to servitude and ruin.

      Thank you for the link. The globalists are using these scenarios to steer the technology not vice-versa . There is no doubt.

      I worked my entire career in new technology development and engineering. As technologies and possibilities began to expand exponentially, we could no longer wait for the market/customers to tell us what was needed. We had to be ahead of our customers and present them multiple scenarios to help us prioritize R&D..

      We turned to scenarios to envision the possibilities of emerging technology, and then align it with market needs and competitiveness. That is not what these sick bastards are doing.

      That journal article is driving what has befallen freemen, in dark partnership with big-tech, politicians, monopolies, and availability of capital. It is evil. Quite the roadmap.

      For example look at the “headlines” for Lock Step scenario on page 22. Add about 4 years for the delay Donald Trump caused them, and we are not far off.

      “Now why is that a big deal? Because it means that more people have had coronavirus and that means the death rate is much lower than we thought it might be.”

  20. They are acting tyrannically not because they are Nazis at heart, but because they fervently desire to project legitimacy, especially leading up to the election. This has been obvious (to me) at every step of the anti-Trump persecutions; even the littlest among them — like Vindman — want to portray themselves as having a “higher loyalty” than that filthy wretch (TM, DNC and BHO) the so-called President Trump. They are insane, and it shows most clearly in their absolute obsessions with clinging to their legitimacy in power. Of course, it only works on their own brainwashed multitude, not on anyone who can see they “do protest too much” when they insist upon dissolving basic, and even quite reasonable, individual freedom.
