Dallas County, Texas Salon Owner Jailed For COVID-19 Noncompliance – Opened Business Now Incarcerated…

It doesn’t come as a shock but it is ridiculous in the extreme. A Dallas County Texas salon owner has been sentenced to a week in jail for defying the order to keep her business closed.  “I couldn’t feed my family and my stylists couldn’t feed their families” Ms. Shelly Luther testified.  The court didn’t care.

The stakes are escalating daily as economic desperation takes over and the oppressive hand of the authoritarian government officials refuse to loosen their grip on their new found power over the population.  Confrontation is likely to get much worse quickly.

TEXAS – A Dallas salon owner will spend a week in jail after she was found in contempt of court Tuesday for violating a court order to close her salon during the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to the jail time, Shelley Luther was fined at least $3,500 for continuing to operate her business, Salon à la Mode, in violation of a temporary restraining order issued against the business.

Like other businesses deemed nonessential, Luther’s Far North Dallas salon was forced to close March 22 after Dallas County enacted its stay-at-home order.  She reopened the salon on April 24 despite that order, and tore up a cease-and-desist letter from Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins at a demonstration the following day.

[…] “I couldn’t feed my family and my stylists couldn’t feed their families,” Luther testified.   (read more)

Unfortunately we predicted this exact outcome when we were discussing how the Blue regions would line up to destroy the financial livelihoods of people living within oppressive control zones. [Previously Here]  There is a growing likelihood things will continue to escalate as people get increasingly desperate and isolated.

This activity is fuel for a full WACO-style confrontation; which, ultimately would serve the interests of the control authoritarians.  This is not a good trend to be seeing.

Also, on the same day this news comes out, we see fully armed SWAT team members with armored vehicles moving in to stop another business and arrest the owners.  Again, this type of activity is going to end with a violent confrontation:

When you see that justice is measured, not by due process, but by compulsion; when you see that in order to invoke your first amendment right to speech; or your sixth amendment right to due process, you must obtain permission from men who rebuke our constitution; when you see that justice is determined by those who leverage, not in law, but in politics; when you see that men get power over individual liberty by graft and by scheme, and our representatives don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you; when you see corruption holding influence, and individual liberty so easily dispatched and nullified; you will know that your freedom too is soon to perish…

The authoritarian government appreciates good citizens who comply with the interests of the state.  Good citizenship is rewarded with access to a safe COVID Compliant Society. A safer society; where the odds will always be in your favor.

A reminder:… During this economic war residents within the Blue occupied territories will be held captive to the political whims of their regional generals.

The economic freedom and liberty zone will encompass the Red region. The center of the country, mid west, southern region (surrounding the Gulf of Mexico) and south eastern Atlantic region. These areas will be open to commerce and economic freedom.

However, the urban dense populations (Blue pockets within Red zones) will push-back against the efforts of the Red generals in an attempt to retain alignment with their Blue team generals. Depending on the strength of the urban forces there may be roadblocks, sabotage, skirmishes and political violence against the freedom & liberty Red team.

If you track the oppression and confrontation you will note it increases in direct proportion to the level of Democrat authoritarian control on a very local level. The higher the spike in the maps below, the greater likelihood your freedom will be removed and you will need to be very careful about any grievance protest.

Red captives within the Blue zones will have to be smart and strategic. Big Blue tech will be assisting the totalitarian Blue generals. Direct confrontation against the Blue forces should be avoided, and it will likely be a better strategy to fight stealthily as insurgents.

Any Red team member of the economic freedom alliance, trapped within a Blue region, is warned to evaluate their connection to their electronic devices. Your cell phones could be used as portable transponders expose your movement and your political views.

As we are seeing, officials within the totalitarian state are not opposed to using full military tactics against U.S. citizens.  This is not new, we have seen this for decades; only this time it is more widespread.  The police firebombed the group MOVE in Philadelphia. Federal officials assassinated members of the Weaver family in Ruby Ridge, Idaho; and everyone is familiar with the WACO Texas massacre.  Those events highlight the potential, only now we are talking about hundreds, perhaps thousands of simultaneous events; again, depending on the level of desperation.

This is going to be one hell of a struggle.  A Spring and Summer conflict looms like we’ve never seen in the history of U.S. politics.  The pressure is building quickly, be careful.

Conduct your affairs accordingly.

It’s not about a virus; it’s about control…

The tall blue spires are the extreme danger zones.

    Shelly Luther was was very polite.
    She rejected the arrogant judge’s demand for a Chinese communist-style “shaming confession”, and politely gave her reasons. There can be no ‘contempt’ aspect to this arrogant judicial civil rights abuse under color of law. So this jailing and fine must be a criminal sentence and fine based on the governors shut-down order. Which may or likely is not, legal, especially for imprisonment.

    The Texas Governor has relatively limited powers. How can violation of the Texas Governor’s shut-down order for actual house-arrest (same as a criminal sentenced to house-arrest) and a taking-theft of property in her business, be criminal? And what is the sentence prescribed for the ‘crime’ of violating a Texas Governor’s order, itself violating the right of assembly?
    Any Texas Governor criminal order must be supported by the Texas Constitution, and probably further by criminal law passed by the legislature. But Abbott’s order violated the Texas Constitution. Article 1 of the Texas Constitution says:
    Sec. 19. DEPRIVATION OF LIFE, LIBERTY, PROPERTY, ETC. BY DUE COURSE OF LAW. No citizen of this State shall be deprived of life, liberty, property, privileges or immunities, or in any manner disfranchised, except by the due course of the law of the land.

    Sec. 27. RIGHT OF ASSEMBLY; PETITION FOR REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES. The citizens shall have the right, in a peaceable manner, to assemble together for their common good; and apply to those invested with the powers of government for redress of grievances or other purposes, by petition, address or remonstrance.

    Sec. 28. SUSPENSION OF LAWS. No power of suspending laws in this State shall be exercised except by the Legislature.

    The arrogant judge’s ‘criminal punishment’ also must not violate the US Constitution. The First Amendment, 5th Amendment (taking of her business property without just compensation) and 13th/14th Amendments (no involuntary servitude except for crimes) cannot be violated by the States or this arrogant judge, except perhaps by the MINIMUM necessary for the china virus ’emergency’.
    However, all shutdown demands are questionable in view of the Sweden approach and other data. New York shows that those incarcerated in Nursing homes, and those subject to house arrest (incarcerated in their houses) make up the vast majority of cases and deaths. Further, the purpose of the Texas Governor’s order was allegedly to ‘flatten the curve’ to prevent hospital overload, which was already done (many hospitals are going broke because they are empty. Moreover, and most important, it was not necessary to imprison healthy people and destroy their businesses and livelihood to ‘flatten the curve’.
    It has been judicially held to be a civil rights violation to quarantine those with AIDS/HIV and Ebola virus. But assuming some quarantine is acceptable, it is not acceptable to imprison healthy people who are likely to only have normal ‘flu-like’ symptoms before recovery. Any attack on Texas and US Constitutional rights must be the minimum necessary, here for ‘flattening the curve’. A less draconian approach would be to imprison only those who are in morbid/mortal danger, under house-arrest. There are many healthy people who have had the china virus without symptoms, now presumably with ‘herd immunity’. Many others have the regular ‘flu symptoms” and are sick for a week or two. But those who are obese (BMI >35), older (say, >60), diabetic, immune-compromised, are at higher morbid/mortal risk. A more minimum imprisonment and 5th Amendment-violating business-taking order from the Texas Governor, if any are valid, would be house-arrest-imprisonment for only those who are sick or at higher risk than a bad flu season, with everyone else asked to wear masks, avoid all public transportation, and wash hands, doorknobs and public surfaces. And use HCQ, Ivermectin, and other cheap drugs tested and applied successfully in other countries to moderate or prevent infection.

    The US Supreme court has held that jail sentences of less than 6 months are not subject to the US Constitution requirement of trial by jury. (yes, they DID, The Supreme Court also held that slaves and former slaves were not US Citizens and did not have ht right to sue in Federal Courts – Dred -Scott) ) The courts try to avoid jury trials by claiming that jail terms up to 6 months are only ‘quasi-criminal’. This is NUTS, and should be revisited. Texas has a stronger jury trial right.
    Her imprisonment is pretty dicey legally. She has the funds to take it on now. You go, Girl !!!

    IMHO, here are sections of the Texas Constitution arguably violated by the arrogant judge.
    Article 1
    Sec. 9. SEARCHES AND SEIZURES. The people shall be secure in their persons, houses, papers and possessions, from all unreasonable seizures or searches, and no warrant to search any place, or to seize any person or thing, shall issue without describing them as near as may be, nor without probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation.

    Sec. 10. RIGHTS OF ACCUSED IN CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS. In all criminal prosecutions the accused shall have a speedy public trial by an impartial jury. He shall have the right to demand the nature and cause of the accusation against him, and to have a copy thereof. He shall not be compelled to give evidence against himself, and shall have the right of being heard by himself or counsel, or both, shall be confronted by the witnesses against him and shall have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, except that when the witness resides out of the State and the offense charged is a violation of any of the anti-trust laws of this State, the defendant and the State shall have the right to produce and have the evidence admitted by deposition, under such rules and laws as the Legislature may hereafter provide; and no person shall be held to answer for a criminal offense, unless on an indictment of a grand jury, except in cases in which the punishment is by fine or imprisonment, otherwise than in the penitentiary, in cases of impeachment, and in cases arising in the army or navy, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger.

    Sec. 11. BAIL. All prisoners shall be bailable by sufficient sureties, unless for capital offenses, when the proof is evident; but this provision shall not be so construed as to prevent bail after indictment found upon examination of the evidence, in such manner as may be prescribed by law.
    Sec. 12. HABEAS CORPUS. The writ of habeas corpus is a writ of right, and shall never be suspended. The Legislature shall enact laws to render the remedy speedy and effectual.

    Sec. 13. EXCESSIVE BAIL OR FINES; CRUEL OR UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT; OPEN COURTS; REMEDY BY DUE COURSE OF LAW. Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel or unusual punishment inflicted. All courts shall be open, and every person for an injury done him, in his lands, goods, person or reputation, shall have remedy by due course of law.

    Sec. 15. RIGHT OF TRIAL BY JURY. The right of trial by jury shall remain inviolate. The Legislature shall pass such laws as may be needed to regulate the same, and to maintain its purity and efficiency…

    Sec. 19. DEPRIVATION OF LIFE, LIBERTY, PROPERTY, ETC. BY DUE COURSE OF LAW. No citizen of this State shall be deprived of life, liberty, property, privileges or immunities, or in any manner disfranchised, except by the due course of the law of the land.

    Sec. 27. RIGHT OF ASSEMBLY; PETITION FOR REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES. The citizens shall have the right, in a peaceable manner, to assemble together for their common good; and apply to those invested with the powers of government for redress of grievances or other purposes, by petition, address or remonstrance.

    Sec. 28. SUSPENSION OF LAWS. No power of suspending laws in this State shall be exercised except by the Legislature.

    Sec. 29. BILL OF RIGHTS EXCEPTED FROM POWERS OF GOVERNMENT AND INVIOLATE. To guard against transgressions of the high powers herein delegated, we declare that everything in this “Bill of Rights” is excepted out of the general powers of government, and shall forever remain inviolate, and all laws contrary thereto, or to the following provisions, shall be void.

    Soros money has gone far in Texas. The large city DAs are now all left wing Soros bought offices as are many of the city councils. San Antonio has unanimously passed hate speech law regarding use of the phrases China Virus or King Flu Virus. This is insanity.

    It looks to me like the fights for Texas is now on. I wonder if this will be the event that finally wakes up the Texans who are still convinced Texas will never gonna blue.
