New York, Oregon Governor’s Expect Police To Enforce Their Thanksgiving COVID Restrictions

Will police do this? I guess it depends where they are. Are there enough China Joe Biden cops in deep blue areas who are willing to give this a shot? They best bring something

What part of the Constitution and their state constitutions are not clear?

Cuomo limits how many people you can have in your home; will cops come knocking?

One of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s latest mandates aimed at helping to stop the spread of coronavirus has gotten a lot of people talking.

It restricts how many guests you are allowed to have in your own home and limits the number to 10 or fewer.

This has caused consternation among those who believe the edict crosses the line between the need to take measures to curb the virus, and individual liberties, especially with Thanksgiving fast approaching.

With every new rule handed down by then governor, he’s almost always been quick to add that it’s up to local authorities to enforce it.

Most of the law enforcement, mostly Sheriff’s departments, said that they would, at worst, simply give people a lecture, and only if someone snitches. Well, don’t even let them in without a warrant. But, really, Cuomo has, in fact, directed law enforcement to enforce his edict, which will cause some to push their authority. You can bet their will be some interesting news stories come Black Friday.

Oregon Governor Imposes Statewide “Freeze” to Curb COVID-19 Spread, Restricting Bars and Restaurants to Takeout Service

Gov. Kate Brown announced today she’s imposing a two-week “freeze” on many activities in Oregon because of the sharp increase in COVID-19 infections.

The new restrictions, which go into effect Nov. 18, include restricting bars and restaurants to takeout only, limiting in-home gatherings to six people from no more than two families, capping grocery and retail stores to 75% of capacity, and limiting attendance at churches to no more than 25 people indoors or 50 outside.

The restriction on social events in private homes will be in effect on Thanksgiving Day.

For counties that have seen a particularly large increase in COVID-19 cases, Brown said the freeze would last at least four weeks. One of those counties is Multnomah.

Wait, that’s the most blue of blue counties in the state, with the city Portland. Is Gov Kate saying that all the Democrats are failing to follow her edicts? Huh

Brown also said today that she has directed the Oregon State Police to begin coordinating with local law enforcement agencies to police the restrictions on in-home gatherings. Brown noted that households that violate the six-person limit will be committing a misdemeanor and could be to subject to citation or arrest.

“We have not chosen to enforce the law in the past,” Brown said. “Unfortunately, now we have no other option.”

People might kowtow to law enforcement in Multnoma, and cops might be willing to go to citizen’s homes, but, that won’t happen in the more rural areas. That Gov. Kate is willing to do this in contradiction of the federal Constitution and the Oregon constitution says a lot about Democrats, just like with Cuomo. Will China Joe voting states and cities try the same thing?

    What better way to start isolating the police from the public. Get the people to hate the cops and there will be no impediment to defund the police.

    I noted here that Reichsstatthalter Andy Beshear (NSDAP-KY) wrote his executive orders to have the conty health departments enforce them, not the state and local police. While I don’t know this to be his reasoning, I suspect that it’s his knowledge that the vast majority of our 120 county sheriffs would never go along with orders to break up large gatherings on private property.

    Alas! our officially non-partisan but in practice Democrat controlled state Supreme Court said the Herr Beshear’s executive orders do not violate the state constitution, so it will be up to the General Assembly to restrict his emergency powers under KRS Chapter 39A. Fortunately, the 2020 elections gave Republicans veto-proof majorities in both chambers, and not just barely. With three seats still being determined, the GOP already has 72 out of 100 seats in the House, with up to 75 a possibility, and 30 out of 38 seats in the state Senate. We could ‘lose’ up to 5 to 8 votes in the House and 4 in the state Senate and still override a veto.

    OK, now how are they going to do that? The police would need either probable cause that a crime was being committed at the time to enter a private residence, or probable cause to obtain a warrant to enter. Does a Karen calling in a complaint, “There are seven people in that house!” constitute probable cause? By the time they get a judge to sign off on a warrant, Thanksgiving dinner, and Thanksgiving day, are over.

    That was what happened in Lexington, Kentucky. According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, “more than 670” Karens called in to combitch to the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department about people not wearing face masks. So far, the health department has issued eight fines to seven businesses for mask mandate violations. The fines are $50 for the first violation — and fines are not imposed unless the business has first had a warning — $75 for a second, and $100 for a third. The Walmart at 500 West New Circle Road has been fined a whopping $50; what’s that to Walmart?

    I listed the seven businesses on my site, urging anyone in Lexington to shop at those businesses; I most certainly will.

    But think about it. Most of the businesses cited have minimum wage employees in customer contact positions, but the Reich Governor expects 19-year-old waitresses to confront 220 lb bikers and order them to wear a mask. Yeah, that’s going to work.

    It sure didn’t seem as though the people in Multnomah County kowtowed to police during the riots. And why would Governess Brown expect that people who wouldn’t obey the law concerning vandalism and arson would be more willing to do so when it comes to COVID-19?

    Oh, wait, I know! She recognizes that the Mostly Peaceful Protesters™ wouldn’t be the homeowners hosting Thanksgiving dinners; it would be their parents, since the Mostly Peaceful Protesters™ all live in cramped apartments if they are not in their parents’ basements, and couldn’t host or afford a large family dinner.

    Teach, are mandatory vaccinations for school children constitutional?

    Was it constitutional to quarantine health care workers who had treated Ebola patients?

    Are current stay home orders, mask orders, restrictions on “non-essential” businesses constitutional?

    The answer to all three is YES.

    By all means, take your grievances all the way to the Supreme Court and see what they say. The new reactionary court may rule in your favor.
