The nation is gripped with coronavirus panic, but there is also fear about what is going to happen to our freedoms and our economy once the crisis is over.

This pandemic has taken its toll on the United States and that is not lost on conservative actor Chuck Norris, who published an Op-Ed for WND on Monday wondering how long it would be until we were under martial law.

The actor said he believes in “being prudent and also being peaceful” but, he added, he had “tough questions” to ask.

Norris said he was concerned by the growing lockdown orders and curfews being enforced by law enforcement limiting citizens’ movements.

“If the need for citizen confinement grows, and the restrictions increase, where does it end? And what excessive burden are we then placing upon law enforcement to corral even half of Americans (150 million)?” he asked.

“And if even the smallest transgression of confinement restrictions ends up being a misdemeanor, how will officials handle tens of millions of them?”

Norris pointed out that if police are expected to enforce the curfews, they too could become stricken with coronavirus.

And if that were to happen, not only would the hospitals be overrun with police officers, but there would also be fewer people to enforce the lockdown.

But what is more frightening, as Norris stated, is that if the lockdown lasts for five weeks or longer, citizens could fight back.

“How long can we allow Americans, who are a freedom-loving people and patriots, to be under ‘lockdown’ in their own homes without working?” Norris asked.

“Many scientists and specialists are even now calling the federal government to a five-week national lockdown? Do we expect the majority to simply comply? Will they have the resources and wherewithal to go the distance without resistance?”

These are frightening questions, but the fact is that American citizens are used to being free and they are now being subjected to draconian restrictions on their liberties.

State governments have taken control of the lives of millions of people, telling us where we are allowed to go, what time we have to be home and whose jobs are essential to the state.

Normally, taking that kind of control of a nation would take a war, but no one fired a shot and we handed over all of our rights.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who you may remember from his promotion of ninth-month abortions or his blackface scandal, has closed churches in his state.

Is there any American freedom more fundamental than the right to worship when and where we want to?

No one is saying that some restrictions are not needed, but to many, it appears we have given the government too much power too quickly.

Americans are playing along for now, but the question is how much longer are they going to allow these infringements to stand?

And is the government going to “give” all of our rights back after the nation’s mayors and governors have spent a month acting as kings?

That should never be a question we have to ask in America. But it may be the most important one.

No one is working and the government seems to be in charge and ready to hand out money to EVERYONE. What a great opportunity to try out a socialist governed people and see if it really works. It won't but it's worth a try.

Chuck, I've always loved you but, you need to calm the HELL down!!! People are having enough difficulty right now, dealing with sheltering in place, losing their paychecks, waiting to get money from the government and, especially people who are self-employed and, will never see a penny of the government's money!!! The very LAST thing they need to do is need a doomsayer to rile them up even more!!!!! Tone it down SIGNIFICANTLY!!!!!

Consider this a test phase. The many governments State , local and federal are doing a trial run for a full lock down in the future. They are just seeing how far the people will tolerate it so they know what force will be needed in the future. Most likely the use of UN forces.

Think for one minute; if we order isolation of a section of the US, the bread-winner isn't earning anything to pay for essentials and the Governors are given full responsibility, we are talking about out-and-out Communism. We will NOT be led into this trap.

As on today 12,500 people died from the flu this year, where’s the panic over that? This is a politically driven panic to ruin a presidents economy before an election, nothing less. It’s Trump’s no. 1 success. The liberal mob needS to distort that before the election to make a small dent in Trump’s Teflon armor. H1N1, SARS, MARS or the flu never even came close to this mob driven panic, yet more died as a percentage and number than this will. The Coronavirus isn’t new, it’s just like the flu, it changes every time around. I’ll bet next year, not a word will be said when it returns.

Well, we sure are finding out who is stable and who isn't, as well as who has an agenda and who they support.

We need Chuck Norris to kick this fucking virus back to worthless China where it came from. Shove it down the throats of their commie government.

The fact that for the first time in history we're placing perfectly healthy people into quarantine is also very unsettling.

CHUCK, I know you mean well, but what happens if this virus isn't ending? You do want to live, don't you? Just asking. (A friendly conservrative)

After seeing Pelosi and her gang of dedicated Commies hold America hostage for over 2 weeks in a successful attempt to ram through bills she wanted passed, Norris's scenario IS possible. We have been sold out by both political parties on many issues . I do give Trump credit for trying but far to many of our elected officials were more than willing to sell their soul and their country for money, power and votes. WE re-elected most of them. The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA has not been united in anything for a very long time and it was done on purpose. The radicals have the media, Hollyweird and the entire educational system on their side. This could turn real ugly, real fast. We are still a great nation with millions of great people, we will not go down without a fight.

My exact sentiments which I posted on FB last week. I fear this is leading to martial law, especially after they closed the gun shops and the places that are open either don't sell or have quit selling ammo. Sad situation for those of us that hold our freedoms dear and have fought for this country in wars overseas to protect those freedoms.

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
