The coronavirus is pandemic is reaching its most crucial phase.
Democrats spent weeks preparing for this moment.
But William Barr released one document that had every Democrat anticipating the worst.
Democrats and so called “public health experts” keep shifting the goal posts on re-opening the economy.
First they argued lockdowns were necessary “flatten the curve” and allow hospitals to build up extra capacity of beds, ventilators, and personal protective equipment.
Now that this goal has been accomplished, some Democrat Governors won’t reopen the economy on grounds there isn’t enough testing or infection rates need to drop even further.
This smells like a sabotage campaign to keep their power grabs in place indefinitely and maintain the lockdown so an economic depression lasts into the fall and ensures Donald Trump’s defeat.
Attorney General William Barr released a memo that fired off a brush back pitch against any Democrat Governor thinking they can lockdown their state for as long as they please.
Barr’s memo made it clear the Department of Justice would take action in the form of joining or filing lawsuits against tyrannical stay at home orders that long since outlived their usefulness.
“But the Constitution is not suspended in times of crisis,” Attorney General Barr wrote. “We must therefore be vigilant to ensure its protections are preserved, at the same time that the public is protected. I thank you for your attention to this important initiative and for your service to our country.”
The Attorney General described how infringing on fundamental rights such as religious freedom would be one such cause of action.
But Barr also added that “interfering in the national economy” would be grounds for the Justice Department jumping in and working to end a lockdown order in the courts.
“For example, the Constitution also forbids, in certain circumstances, discrimination against disfavored speech and undue interference with the national economy,” Barr continued.
Governors were given latitude – too much many critics argue – to impose lockdown orders to “slow the spread” of the coronavirus.
Attorney General Barr is making it clear that America needs to get back to business and the Department of Justice will take steps to make sure that happens.
