Civil Disobedience Can End the Coronavirus Stupidity

We are ruled by imbeciles. And they're power-mad

The happiest news to emerge in recent coronavirus weeks come courtesy of videos from online news sources showing the good citizens of Michigan, fed up with their tyrannical governor, taking to the streets in mass — and maskless! — to demand an end to the tyranny.

The saddest news? The realization that it took so long for these types of protests to occur.

And for reason for that, we can turn to the Declaration of Independence.

“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed,” the opening lines state.

Most Americans, when first informed of the coronavirus, wanted to simply do the right thing and help their neighbors, help their communities and families, help their country. They willingly stayed home; out of love for neighbor — or at least, concern for neighbor — abided by the government’s recommendations and mandates to protect against the spread of the virus. Business owners shelved their dreams of entrepreneurial freedom for the good of the country. School administrators closed their buildings; government service officers shut their doors. Church pastors, even, sent their congregations online.

Then things got stupid. Really stupid.

Then government ran amok.

The Americans saw tyrannical types, up close and personal, up close and in their own communities, seize powers the Constitution doesn’t grant and run roughshod over the rights of individuals and business owners. And Americans saw how these tyrannies were taking place in the face of failed computer modeling that showed wildly inaccurate coronavirus numbers.

“Michigan cracks down on seed purchases and tiny gatherings,” The Post Millennial reported, of Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s ridiculous executive-issued prohibitions against the purchase of plant seeds and grains in the state — and against neighbors from visiting their next-door neighbors.

Police state, anyone?

Seriously: How does buying plant seeds cause — or even correlate to — a spread of the coronavirus?

Then there was this, in the aftermath of an eye-opening Fox News interview between host Tucker Carlson and guest, Gov. Phil Murphy of New Jersey.

“By what authority did you nullify the Bill of Rights in issuing this order [prohibiting church gatherings and free assembly of the people]?” Carlson asked.

“That’s above my pay grade,” Tucker,” Murphy said, as the National Review noted. “I wasn’t thinking of the Bill of Rights when we did this.”

Come again?

It’s the job of a governor — of any public servant who takes the oath of office, for that matter — to first and foremost, above all else, uphold the provisions of both state and U.S. constitutions.

To admit to not “thinking” of those documents, as a governor, is to admit a failure of job performance.

It’s a fireable offense. And in these coronavirus times, there are a lot of fireable offenses being perpetrated on the people by government officials, from police to politicians. Are we to stand idly by and watch, sheeplike, doing nothing forever?

This is where the rights of the individual to control and curb the government should blare forth.

President Donald Trump says he’s got a plan to open America’s economy and jumpstart U.S. businesses again, and that states ought to abide by his White House guidelines. Some states say they won’t.

Some states say the heck with reopening the country, the heck with freeing citizens from their house arrest, er, suggested stay-at-home, syndromes — the heck with all that until each and every last case of the coronavirus has been driven from humanity, until it’s safe and secure out there for all.

Well, what right does government have to decide that in the first place?

American citizens are well-equipped to determine how best to protect themselves and their families from looming health threats.

Americans do it every day, as a matter of fact.

Those who feel sick — stay home.

Those who worry about getting sick — stay home.

Those who can’t stay home but worry about getting sick — go ahead and wear a mask, social distance, stay in the car, do whatever seems logical and proper to keep from getting sick.

Just don’t expect all of America to suffer a police state existence for the next, well, forever — as a matter of possible protection for the relatively few citizens in the country who may or may not catch the coronavirus.

It’s time for more civil disobedience. It’s time for the protests of Michigan residents against their power mad governor to spread to the rest of the states — if only to send a message to the government that says: We’re watching. We’re watching, and we’re fed up.

If not now, when?

Americans aren’t going to go quietly into that good despotic night. Nor should they.

After all, it’s in America’s founding to fight for freedom.

“[W]hen a long train of abuses and usurpations [occur] … it is [citizens’] right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security,” the Declaration of Independence reads.

It’s not just a right to Americans to strive for freedom. It’s not just a right enshrined in the Constitution, in the Bill of Rights, in the First and Second amendments in particular.

It’s a duty. An actual duty. It’s a duty and responsibility for Americans to demand government obey. And how do Americans typically go about exercising that duty? With civil disobedience. Peaceful — but purposeful, persistent and powerful civil disobedience.

President Kennedy sent the national guard to Alabama to force the governor to allow blacks to attend college. Trump should likewise send the guard to force the governors to cease and desist.

All the world’s a stage: Trump is a puppet, a figure head, acting out a role scripted by his handlers, and he has now made that quite clear, ‘I’ve really enjoyed being your president’, FEMA running the Big Brother show, civil war builds in the undertow!

He should arrest the Governors for treason. That would send a strong message to any future Governor that deciding to serve the NWO and trash the Constitution comes with strong consequences.

He serves the NWO. He gets his orders from his Globalist masters. The time has come to charge all these Governors with treason. To try to subvert the Constitution is treason.

he did, didn’t he – tucker punked out like a bitch and just let the fool gov get away with that lame-ass answer…. because tucker’s game is to make you think that he has the people’s back, but in reality he only goes half way, which shows that he actually has the establishment’s back.

Thank you, Ms. Chumley; excellent article — and photos: top one sure looks like the MN (vs. Mich) protest … Yes, it’s called civil disobedience. As u sd: “Are we to stand idly by and watch, sheeplike, doing nothing forever?”

FEMA has been in charge since Trump declared a national emergency. All seeds and everything else is now controlled by FEMA, theu National Security Council, and the military. And it will be this way for at least six months. Congress has been suspended. Trump is no longer President and is only a messenger boy now. Notice his podium say President and Washington, the Presidential seal, and the presidential flag are gone. The American flag has the gold fringe around it. This is the flag of Admiralty and military rule, so everybody can stop bitching about what Trump says or does from now on because he is in charge of nothing.

What a stupid and uninformed article this is. It’s nobody’s “duty” to act irresponsibly during a world-wide pandemic. The callous disregard for life, the future security of this country, family, friends, elders, young and old is despicable. Nobody’s “freedom” is being infringed here. Either you stupid fkn fools can spread the virus around among yourselves, or you can stay home. Pretty damned simple. 99% of America is laughing at you stupid idiots. You think you “patriots” while disregarding the life, liberty, security and happiness of everyone else. You’re a bunch of no-nothing faketriots, phonies through and through. Bunch of ignorant dumbshits. Everybody knows it.

Feeding the prole: What a stupid half-wit dumbshit, and what an uninformed comment yours is, StupidNut; a scamdemic requires no soshill (sic) distancing, no lock down incarceration (oh, you didn’t realise that’s what it is), no spraying of hands, face and extraneous parts like demented monkeys, no masks, no gloves, no hazmat suits, in other words, a scamdemic just requires you to wake the flvuck up. Doos. Look it up, clown.

I will say that most non-government, non-big pharma virologists and microbiologists as my niece, all pretty much say this is no more than N1H1, swine flu, or any of the other diseases that has killed hundreds of thousands of people. Why the police state on this one. Want numbers world wide … active infected 1,700,000 world population 7,700,000,000 equals 0.0002 % that means 2 in 10,000 infected. Those are not lock down pandemic numbers. How about deaths as unfortunate as they are 165,000 / 7,700,000,000 equals 0.00002 % that is 2 deaths per 100,000 people. Do you know cigarette related deaths are over 450,000 per year. That is only in the USA, not the world. The numbers indicate no pandemic, nothing more than a flu season with police state tactics by the rich and powerful. As Mr Goebbels said back in 1939 … tell a lie enough times and it becomes the truth. They are using Consensus Science to lock us all down. Benjamin Franklin said … those who would give up liberty for security … deserve neither

You little coward slave. Stay at home hiding under the bed if you think that will protect from the big bad boogie virus. The rest of us who aren’t slaves prefer to go out as we please.

Corona Virus is a false flag used in instilling fear and cover-up of the World Corporate Government Bankruptcy and the impending Global Currency Reset. The Governments of the Breton Woods’ member countries are illegitimate corporations. (KH)

‘Tis all a numbers game, where zero plus zero equals whatever Big Brother says it does: The virus is as fake as their news, the Fourth Estate spewing forth the scripted fear and loathing divide and fool gruel, and if you want some clues, I’ll provide them on cue, and did I mention, non-existent diseases are best promoted via crisis actors and white coated geezers!

Yep… You didn’t say non-existent, but you said “The corona virus is false. Period.” The false are the narrative and fear mongering of the MSM following the order of their financier owner.
