The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

So, just like the election of Donald Trump exposed a bunch of conservatives who really aren't conservative (and perhaps never were), the coronavirus crisis has exposed a bunch of people who apparently flunked civics. For example, as you see down below, Ms. Jong-Fast is appalled that the states have to govern themselves, which is pretty much according to what our constitution says. And this from someone who writes for the Bulwark, conserving conservatism.

Apparently, being completely ignorant of how our national government was designed to function is not an impediment to getting a job at the Bulwark. Probably the only requirement is chanting "Orange Man bad!" a few times.

But there are other takes that are almost as bad. Like this one here: quote, Fascinating to see which conservatives are totally fine with Mayors & Governors shutting down private businesses. It's one thing for govt to recommend social distancing. It's an abuse of power to dictate private enterprise stop, end quote.

And this is where a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.

Just because it would be an abuse of power for the federal goverment to shut down local businesses, enforce curfews, and limit travel, it doesn't follow that it's an abuse of power for state or local governments to take such steps in a public health crisis. It might not be wise or prudent to do so, but it is not outside the constitutional purview of local governments.

But I understand the distrust. As ace mentioned in one of his rants yesterday, state and municipal governments haven't exactly covered themselves with glory here. They've let the vagrancy problem spiral out of control until the streets are running with poo. They've ordered the police to stand aside while antifa mobs beat up bystanders and take control over whole areas of blue cities. And then police departments announce that they're no longer going to be prosecuting or even making arrests for certain crimes, thus effectively legalizing them. All the while refusing to cooperate with ICE and even releasing illegal aliens with violent criminal histories back into the general population, where they, get this, continue to rape and murder.

And don't get me started on civil asset forfeiture.

So when the local gendarmerie comes around and tells you to close your business "for your own safety", it's OK to not believe they have your best interests in mind. They've spent the last generation pissing away whatever public trust they may once have had. Like the media. It's just like the media. Just when we badly need them, both have been exposed as hopeless sinkholes of corruption and decay. It's like you've discovered that the house you've been living in that you thought would protect you is filled with termites.

Now get this, without any comment afterward.

Have they ever at any time or place given Trump the same courtesy?

Nope.

There was a plethora of plain lies and misinformation, but

83 "[...] it doesn't follow that it's an abuse of power for state or local governments to take such steps in a public health crisis. It might not be wise or prudent to do so, but it is not outside the constitutional purview of local governments."

This is a non sequitur. The fact that the local governments are empowered to do this is what makes it an abuse of power. They have the legal power. The unwise and imprudent exercise thereof is the alleged abuse. Nobody said the closures were unconstitutional or unlawful.

Posted by: Nick at March 18, 2020 11:22 AM (wWHZw)

84 Now as I posted yesterday, Local governments can't get away with doing whatever they want. If they force your business to close, you can take them to court, follow it through the appeals, and I am sure that in 5 or 6 years, you can get a decision allowing your business to reopen. 7 years, tops.

I was just on a Conference call with other clergy. One of the women was having contractions at that moment! She also has a two year old. She's rather tense about having a baby during coronavirus. If anyone would keep her in prayer it would be appreciated. Her name is Sarah. Thanks

This is a non sequitur. The fact that the local governments are empowered to do this is what makes it an abuse of power. They have the legal power. The unwise and imprudent exercise thereof is the alleged abuse. Nobody said the closures were unconstitutional or unlawful.

I'm guessing DNC has made a deal with Fox, maybe as a condition of hosting Democrat debates/events they are inviting more party diehards such as Schumer onto their shows.

Actually, I'm more inclined to think they don't know. Watch any press conference and listen to the questions being asked. Yes, they are Gotcha questions, but the actual premise is based on ignorance.

These people also have no ability to hear an answer to a question ahead of theirs, and realize their questions has either been answered or refuted. They will instead go on and ask the same question like a parrot.

They also believe that only THEY know the truth of something, that the general public will not be able to find out what they know, so they can successfully hide what they don't want their readers, etc. to know.

It's amazing how fast, once you watch one video on Youtube, then another, your side suggestions are inundated with related content.

I know there was that creep who did a video on that subject a year or two ago, and he was talking about kiddie pron, but that's the Youtube system. It's relentless. It just assumes once you watch ONE video, you have absolutely no other interest in anything else, even if you've been watching other types of content for eons.

248 While it is true that big blue ban areas like SF and and big blue States have routinely violated people's rights and the Constitution it is also true that local governments have established curfews and quarantines throughout the history of the United States and the reasonable courts of those early days thought it was A-OK. I have no problem with quarantines to curb the spread of disease. But I would prefer that we have a little more evidence of the need rather tahn a few locals having a minor spike.

Posted by: SMH - Seriously? at March 18, 2020 11:44 AM (RU4sa)

252 Been doing research this morning. From the CDC website about 2009's H1N1 pandemic:

https://bit.ly/38VtHty

Take note of the CDC numbers in that link. Between April and October 2009, there were 22 MILLION cases in the USA of H1N1. Other than declaring a public health emergency, no one cared.

Contrast that with COVID-19.

Total number of Worldwide cases --- not USA cases, WORLDWIDE --- is... 208,172.

If you are not questioning the narrative, you are beyond help.

H1N1 TIMELINE:

--- On April 26, 2009 Obama's acting director of health and human services declared H1N1 a public health emergency.

--- A Pandemic Is Declared.
On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) signaled that a global pandemic of novel influenza A (H1N1) was underway by raising the worldwide pandemic alert level to Phase 6. This action was a reflection of the spread of the new H1N1 virus, not the severity of illness caused by the virus.

On October 24, 2009, *four months later*, a second declaration was made by President Obama to temporarily waive or modify certain requirements of the Medicare, Medicaid, and State Children's Health Insurance programs and of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Privacy Rule.

+++++

Those saying that President Trump did not act fast enough are lying. And they are relying on the fact that the media will NOT inform people of any perspective by comparing this to the H1N1 pandemic.

This is criminal.

I could not hear any boat traffic on the Willamette River. People are acting like its deadly to be outside or go anywhere at all.

Give the money to everyone, with a clause in the 2020 tax code. Everyone with an adjusted gross income over some amount pays an assessment equal to the money given.

Example: The feds give everyone $3,000.00. In 2021, anyone with an AGI of $250,000.00 or more pays an extra $3,000.00 in taxes on their 2020 return. No need for any Bureaucracy or long ass forms. Rich people get a temporary interest free loan of $3,000, for a year.
