We’ve all seen the videos… police arresting a mother for taking her kid to a public park that her own tax dollars built; a surfer busted for the high crime of surfing; a middle-aged hausfrau led away in handcuffs for refusing to be a prisonwer in her own home, etc., etc.
Probably out of force of habit, most of us were disgusted when we read and/or saw videos of Americans cops “just following orders” at the behest of petty tyrants from coat to coast.
But after a moment or two, we realize that these aren’t the days of Daddy Bush, Bubba Clinton, Dubya, or Comrade Barry.
These are the Trump days were living through. He’s the one who gets things done. In spite of Deep State Democrats, a very hostile media, and more than a few RINOs still roaming free, Trump makes stuff happen.
Case in point: The Washington Times is reporting that AG Barr is ordering legal action be taken against the same Lil’ Stalins and Mini Hitlers crapping all over our basic Constitutional rights (emphasis mine);
Attorney General William P. Barr Monday ordered U.S. attorneys to pursue legal action against governors whose efforts to prevent the spread of the coronavirus infringe upon Americans’ civil rights.
“If a state or local ordinance crosses the line from an appropriate exercise of authority to stop the spread of COVID-19 into an overbearing infringement of constitutional and statutory protections, the Department of Justice may have an obligation to address that overreach in federal court,” Mr. Barr wrote in a memo to all U. S. Attorneys.
“Many policies that would be unthinkable in regular times have become commonplace in recent weeks, and we do not want to unduly interfere with the important efforts of state and local officials to protect the public. But the Constitution is not suspended in times of crisis,” Mr. Barr wrote.
