Cases are before the courts, recounts are pending, and we don’t even have the original count yet — but Biden is already showing his authoritarian streak.
Now’s a good time to take a moment and remember that famous Lindsey Graham quote from the Kavanaugh hearings: “Boy, you all want power. God, I hope you never get it.”
Nobody has yet confirmed Biden is moving to Pennsylvania Ave. But that isn’t stopping him from playing the part to get the public on his side and make it that much more difficult, politically, for a court to overturn his ‘win’. (Judges are people too.)
So, what does this intrepid ‘leader’ have lined up as the very first item on his agenda? Forcing the public to comply to his will.
Joe said nothing about the ‘mass spreader events’ when crowds of people took to the steets to cheer along with Joe as he claimed the mantle of President-Elect before it had actually been given him. (It serves his purposes, after all.)
Immediately afterward, Joe began insisting on micromanaging the lives of ordinary Americans. Just like we said he would, despite all of Joe’s denials.
He’s talking about mask mandates.
These guys just can’t help themselves, can they?
The WHO has already stood up and agreed with our side’s instincts that these mass lockdowns were a bad idea, causing as much or more harm than it could help. A recently as June, WHO was saying that most healthy people under 60 are not even advised to wear them.
[Editor’s note: The FoxNews blockquote that follows erroneously calls Biden president-elect. This is in the original quote, but that mistake was fully addressed above. Strikeout text is ours.]
One of Joe Biden’s first priorities
as president-electwill be implementing mask mandates nationwide by working with governors. The future 46th president, however, says if they refuse than he will go to mayors and county executives and get local masking requirements in place.
…As for social distancing, Biden’s plan says it will be used as more of a “dial” approach that will determine the risk of spread using evidence-based guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a move Siegel says is a mistake.
“I don’t think social distancing is dial. I think masks are a dial,” Siegel said. “Social distancing is something we should just be doing right now. You never know how much virus was in the community.”
He believes physical distancing is actually more important to curbing the spread than masks are.
“I think physical distancing is more important than masks,” Siegel argued. “If you’re 10 feet away from someone, you’re not going to get the virus. If you’re one foot away with a mask, you might.”
Siegel’s comments come just a day after crowds flooded the street across major cities to celebrate Biden’s projected win. While the majority of Americans supporting Biden have worn masks, many of the celebrations over the weekend had an absence of social distancing, which the president-elect has appeared silent on. —FoxNews
Federalism won’t let him tell us what to do.
So he will look for ways to coerce Governors to do that on his behalf. The ‘Or else’ is implied. For our own good of course — it always is.
To hell with what individual citizens may feel about it.
