Published

The battle against the coronavirus, an invisible invading force that has ravaged the globe making folks seriously ill and killing those most vulnerable to its effects, continues to rage across the United States and things are getting intense.

Many states across the country have opted to put out stay-at-home orders in a bid to prevent the spread of the virus, resulting in many businesses being shut down and other measures that are guaranteed to have a deep economic impact on the local community and the country at large.

The latest state to join in on employing these measures is Maryland.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan issued a stay-at-home order on Monday.

“We have reached a critical turning point in the fight to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the Republican said during a news conference. “We are no longer asking or suggesting that Marylanders stay at home. We are directing them to do so.”

“No Maryland resident should be leaving their home unless it is for an essential job or an essential reason,” Hogan said, adding that buying food and medical reasons are exempt.

The state of Maryland seems to be taking the stay-at-home order to a brand new level, seeking to actually use legal action to help enforce it. Individuals who are caught breaking the order could receive a misdemeanor and be subject to a year in prison plus a $5,000 fine.

The order goes into full effect Monday evening at 8 P.M.

By the end of the day Monday half of the states in America will have one of these orders on the books including California, Alaska, Delaware, Colorado Connecticut, Ohio, Oregon, and many, many others.

Some might think the idea of enforcing this kind of order with actual legal action is crossing into dangerous territory. We all know that once the government sees how easy it is to take control over us and how easily we accept their rule, it will be difficult for them not to abuse the power they snatched from the hands of the people.

The government is good at taking power away from others, but not so good at giving it back. We all agree that things must be done to stop the spread of the virus, but the question we must all ask ourselves is how far is too far?

Are we willing to sacrifice our liberty for safety?

Guess we’ll know the answer to that sooner rather than later.

Save conservative media!

There’s a whole heck of a lot to unpack regarding the death of Minnesota man George Floyd and former police officer Derek Chauvin. Let’s just get right to the latest news. From Daily Wire: On Friday, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner issued a report saying a preliminary autopsy showed no evidence that George Floyd died of strangulation and traumatic asphyxia. Floyd’s arrest was captured on video and went viral earlier this week. During the incident, at least one officer is seen kneeling on the 46-year-old’s neck while Floyd repeatedly tells him he can’t breath. Floyd died soon following the arrest.

Violent rioters reportedly stormed a police precinct in New York City on Friday and lit law enforcement vehicles on fire.

Democrat Chicago Mayor Has ‘Two Words’ for Trump, ‘It Begins With F & It Ends With U’

Not cool, Lori.

When Republicans in office disagreed with Barack Obama, at least the vast majority did so in a professional manner. The same cannot be said about Democrats in the era of Trump. Enter the far-left mayor of Chicago, via Fox News: Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted President Trump and invoked an expletive Friday in response to his tweet after three days of protests in Minneapolis, Minn., when he called the protesters “THUGS” and tweeted that “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Lightfoot said, “Donald Trump’s comment last night was profoundly dangerous. And we must stand firm in solidarity and say this is totally unacceptable no matter who is the speaker.” She added, “He wants to show failures on the part of Democratic local leaders, to throw red meat to his base. His goal is to polarize, to destabilize local government and inflame racist urges. We can absolutely not let him prevail. And I will code what I really want to say to Donald Trump. It’s two words. It begins with F and it ends with U.” Here’s a screenshot of Trump’s tweets: And here’s what Twitter decided to do with those tweets: A Lightfoot tweet: https://twitter.com/chicagosmayor/status/1244762897743351808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1244762897743351808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fchicago.suntimes.com%2Fcity-hall%2F2020%2F4%2F6%2F21211314%2Fgetting-roots-done-not-essential-getting-hair-cut-mayor-lightfoot VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ah7xQHo9WOQ
