F.Y.I.

















Emperor Trumpus Maximus I technically cannot, as it turns out, "overrule" governors who refuse to re-open houses of worship.

What he can do, is direct the U.S. attorneys in any state that refuses to open them, to secure grand jury indictments of any and all governors who won't re-open churches, for conspiracy, and deprivation of civil rights under color of authority, as well as violations of the 14th amendment "equal protection" clause, send U.S. Marshals to arrest those governors and anyone else complicit in interfering with any religious service, and back it up with federal troops deployed from any and every handy base, cocked, locked, and ready to rock, exactly as Ike did at Little Rock in the 1950s with desegregating schools.

Anyone so arrested could look forward to no bail on the grounds of re-offense before trial, a speedy and public federal trial, a federal felony conviction, and a good stretch in Club Fed, and Trump would win the November election 48 states to 2. Bonus points would be awarded if the governors in question were either/both those of MI and/or IL.

So go ahead, @$$tard governors, go there, and see how that works out for ya.

Popcorn futures are off the charts Sunday morning.

Should churches be holding in-person meetings, as if everything was back to normal?
Probably not.
That's a question of prudence though, not jurisprudence.
They should probably do some modifications, but if they did a few sensible things, they could minimize risk to no worse than letting people into WalMart.

But the one thing that is crystal clear is that it's up to them, not the government, as to whether or not they re-open, and how they go about it.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;..."
"No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state...deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." 
In that sense, Orange Man can damned sure overrule any such unconstitutional edicts, on whatsoever grounds, and back that reversal up with force of law and force of arms, if needs be. I wouldn't like the odds of the state police or any state's Notional Guard contingent if a battalion of the 101st helos in to keep a church or three open, but it would have a salutary effect on reminding police agencies of the limits of their power, very possibly in a new-third-eye-in-the-forehead kind of way.

How the chicoms keep R₀ low; it should be mandatorily instituted in all public gathering places by all 50 states forthwith.

"It would have been nice if the governments of the world had been honest and told us up-front, that this is a manufactured virus that escaped the lab it was created in to begin with. Would have made the gyrations they went through in the beginning a lot more palatable. No one should volunteer for Gates' patented vaccine. Fauci and Gates are in this up to their figurative armpits."

The first two words that came to mind when the Usual Suspects started whining "He Can't Do That!' were "Little Rock".
