We should all take a moment and thank God that we have solid, freedom-loving conservatives on the U.S. Supreme Court like Justice Samuel Alito, who stirred up the news cycle over the past 24 hours when he laid out the truth concerning the effect that the pandemic has had on American liberties.
According to The Hill, at the recent Federalist Society’s annual meeting, Alito gave remarks in which he said that the COVID-19 pandemic was nothing less than a constitutional “stress test” for America.
“We have never before seen restrictions as severe, extensive and prolonged as those experienced for most of 2020,” Alito said. “The COVID crisis has served as sort of a constitutional stress test.”
Alito’s eye-opening warning came on the heels of the mainstream media and top Democrats weaponizing the pandemic to wield as a political sword against anyone who questions “the science” of being forced to wear masks, social distance and even forced to stay away from family and friends.
Oh, not to mention the latest round of guidance from several Democrat governors who are actively warning residents of their states to not gather in large groups, even for holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas.
That’s all while Democrats continue to insist that locking down America, which crushes local and state economies, is the best way to mitigate spread of the virus — economic and other mental health consequences be damned.
Adding to that, a top adviser to former Vice President Joe Biden made clear that if Biden wins the White House, Americans should prepare themselves for a potential 4-6 week national lockdown period.
If you turn on virtually any cable news network at any time of the day, you’re likely to see a perpetual split screen — one that shows the anchor who’s talking and another that shows updated COVID-19 infection rates, death tolls and global numbers. They keep that on the screen nearly all day for good reason — they know it scares you.
We already witnessed the pandemic being used against Trump in the 2020 election and many would argue that the tactic worked. Ironically, Trump took measures early on that not a single Democrat would have taken, but to this day, they won’t give him credit for banning China travel very early on, because they know it was a smart and life-saving move.
And they can’t afford even the slightest chance that Trump looks like he did a good job with a novel virus that would have thrown a wrench in the gears for any president of any country.
Alito, who was appointed by former President George W. Bush and confirmed by the Senate in 2006, also pointed out how unfair it is that places of worship have been unfairly targeted during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially given that many other businesses and establishments were allowed to be open.
“Nevada was unable to provide any justification for treating casinos more favorably than other houses of worship,” Alito pointed out as an example. “Religious liberty is in danger of becoming a second-class right.”
Should Biden end up in the White House, justices like Alito might be Americans’ last line of defense against a regime who will likely do everything in their power to keep us locked down, 24/7.
