Guy Hiding In His Basement Calls For National Mask Mandate

Wouldn’t it be great if we had a media which would ask tough questions, such as “under what Constitutional authority would you be able to do this, Joe?”

Biden calls for mask mandates in all 50 states: ‘It’s about saving Americans’ lives’

Joe Biden on Thursday called for a mask mandate that would cover all 50 states, as COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. approach 170,000 and cases continue to rise.

At a campaign event in Wilmington, Del., the presumptive Democratic nominee for president urged governors to be in one accord and require universal use of masks, citing “overwhelming evidence” that wearing a mask helps prevent the spread of the deadly disease. Public health experts are almost unanimous in agreeing that masks help curb the transmission of the coronavirus.

“This is not about Democrat, Republican or independent,” he said. “It’s about saving Americans’ lives. So let’s institute a mask mandate nationwide, starting immediately, and we will save lives.”

At a press briefing a few hours later, President Trump inaccurately described Biden’s proposal as a nationwide mandate imposed by federal decree, in contrast to his own approach of leaving it to the states.

And how would Handsy Joe enforce a national mask mandate? Send in federal police? The Constitution gives the Executive Office no authorization to implement a national mask mandate. Yes, some argue that one would violate the 1st Amendment, but, they’re missing the point that the Constitution, including the Bill Of Rights, gives no power to federal government, including the Legislative Branch (John Yoo and James Phillips make the case that Congress could possibly get away with passing one), no power to have one. That power would be left to the states.

But as the virus shows no signs of slowing down, some officials, such as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., have called for a national mask mandate.

The U.S. has the highest number of coronavirus cases in the world, with 5 million positive cases, according to data provided by Johns Hopkins University, and about 166,000 deaths.

“Every single American should be wearing a mask when they’re outside for the next three months at a minimum,” said Biden.

So, if most people are wearing masks, why does the number of cases keep increasing?

Now, what if Trump had instituted a national mask mandate? How do you think Democrats and their pet media would have reacted? Would they say “thank you, good job” or “hell no, Mr. President, you don’t have the authority to do this!!!!!!” And perhaps some “my body my choice” signs, which some anti-mask, and some freedom, people have already brought out.

    TEACH asks: “under what Constitutional authority would you be able to do this, Joe?”

    At a campaign event in Wilmington, Del., the presumptive Democratic nominee for president urged governors to be in one accord and require universal use of masks, citing “overwhelming evidence” that wearing a mask helps prevent the spread of the deadly disease.

    Since when does a US President need to consult the Constitution to “urge(d) governors to be in one accord and require universal use of masks…”?

      Under what authority can governors order universal mask-wearing?

      Some have, and the sheeple have said, “It is good.” F(ornicate) them!

      If the governor asks me to do something, and provides a good reason to do so, I’ll (probably) comply. When the Governor orders me to do so, not just no, but Hell no!

      When it’s a violation of people’s rights?

      Dr Scarf has started to talk about making people wear them at home. One guy was pulled over because he wouldn’t wear one in his car.

      Talk about the knock on the door.

  2. Dana says:

    Gee, so when I am alone or only with my family, on my farm, with no one else for acres around, our former Vice President thinks I should be required to wear a mask?

    Sitzpinkler Biden wants to be the authoritarian dictator he claims President Trump to be.

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Did Mr. Biden discuss forcing citizens to wear masks in their homes?

    Here’s the quote from the article TEACH cited: “Every single American should be wearing a mask when they’re outside for the next three months at a minimum,” said Biden.

    When you go to the local Guns & Ammo are you offended when they make you stand 6 feet apart and wear a mask?

    By law, declared states of emergency, including for pandemics, give executives (mayors, governors, president) expanded powers.

    Don’t like it? Change the laws. Eliminate declaring states of emergency. The authorities can block roads, enact curfews, even make folks wear masks during a public health emergency. Of course businesses can require you to wear masks, shirts and shoes to receive service.

    How well did the US half-assed measures do? 170,000 dead – on the way to 250,000 – crashed economy – unemployment – long term sequelae in survivors…

    Urging governors to enact mask laws may not be as fascistic as suppressing the vote.

      He wants a mask mandate and, since he hasn’t denounced Dr Scarf, I can only presume he’s OK with the idea.

      Here’s the quote from the article TEACH cited: “Every single American should be wearing a mask when they’re outside for the next three months at a minimum,” said Biden.

      Why 3 months? Why pick an arbitrary date like that unless he has no clue (and he doesn’t) about when to end this phony scam.

      When you go to the local Guns & Ammo are you offended when they make you stand 6 feet apart and wear a mask?

      When you go to the local gay bar, are you not offended? And if not, why not?

      By law, declared states of emergency, including for pandemics, give executives (mayors, governors, president) expanded powers.

      Well, some of those expanded powers are already being struck down in the courts.

      Don’t like it? Change the laws. Eliminate declaring states of emergency. The authorities can block roads, enact curfews, even make folks wear masks during a public health emergency. Of course businesses can require you to wear masks, shirts and shoes to receive service.

      They can? Or is this just a gimmick to turn a lot of people into unthinking sheep? And, actually, I don’t think they have the right to make people do something which has no effect on the cause of the emergency.

      How well did the US half-assed measures do? 170,000 dead – on the way to 250,000 – crashed economy – unemployment – long term sequelae in survivors…

      They were doing fine until TweedleNew and TweedleYork opened the country to every sickie in the world. And the count, which obsesses you more than most people is about 340.

      And it’s you guys that tried to crash the economy. Too bad it didn’t work.

      Urging governors to enact mask laws may not be as fascistic as suppressing the vote.

      Ah, but it is and there is not vote suppression. Only vote fraud.
