So governors are ‘locking down’ their states over coronavirus, but what has to happen before they RESCIND the orders?

'Non-essential' Americans can't be out of work indefinitely

By Jon Dougherty

(TNS) On Saturday, New Jersey became the latest state to go on coronavirus “lockdown,” following neighboring New York as well as Illinois, California and Pennsylvania.



According to Zero Hedge, other governors are considering issuing lockdown orders including Connecticut, which the site believes will announce by Monday.



In short, there are likely several other states considering lockdowns as more people become diagnosed with the disease.

As of this moment, more than 25 percent of Americans — or about 86 million — are living under lockdown conditions. And again, that number is likely to rise.

“We must flatten the curve and ensure residents are practicing social distancing,” New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said in announcing the new restrictions, echoing virtually the same language being used to justify the lockdowns by other governors.

But, he added, “Even with this order in effect…life in New Jersey does not have to come to a complete standstill.”

Really? How do you ‘lock down’ a state without it coming “to a complete standstill” for the majority of residents? We ask that because the order also bars citizens from leaving their homes to work if their jobs are considered “non-essential,” according to Zero Hedge.

Of course, they don’t have jobs to go anymore, either:

Starting at 9 p.m. Saturday, New Jersey residents must stay home and all nonessential businesses have to close indefinitely. All gatherings including weddings, in-person services and parties, are canceled until further notice, Murphy said.

He added that the rules he laid out supersede all those set by towns or cities or counties in his state,  The governor made the announcement during his Saturday press conference. “We need you to just stay home,” he said, adding that, as of 12:30 pm, the state had counted 1,327 positive tests and 16 deaths.

Indefinitely means…what, exactly? Well, of course, it means “we don’t know when we’re going to allow ‘non-essential businesses’ to reopen so ‘non-essential employees’ can go back to there jobs.

Not everyone can “work from home.” You can’t run a restaurant or a bar ‘from home,’ for example. Ditto for a dress shop, or a shoe store, or one of a thousand other small businesses that are now being increasingly ordered closed ‘until further notice.’

So these orders beg the question: How do they get lifted? At what point will they be rescinded?

Roughly a week ago President Donald Trump laid out national guidelines that called for ‘non-essential’ businesses to close and Americans to avoid travel and large social gatherings for 15 days.

Fifteen days is a long time for lower-income Americans with no savings to hold out but it’s doable.

And yet, state-level lockdown orders make no mention of any specific timeline. We don’t know how long they’ll last because governors are not telling us. Are governors following the president’s timeline?

If not, then what kind of timeline are they following?

What has to happen before the lockdown orders will be rescinded? A downward trend in infection rates? Or will the orders remain in effect until there are no new infections — because as long as even one American is infected, there is a danger that others will become infected too…right?

Americans will go along with these orders for a while, but not “indefinitely.” While most people understand the intent behind the lockdowns, they still have to make a living and they won’t tolerate being slowly starved to death by governors and elected legislatures that are still getting paid and still eating.



We need to know, governors, what the coronavirus lock-down order end-game is here. The sooner the better.

Or are we not being told because you don’t think we’ll like the answer?

Half the people in our
‘beloved’ government are NOT
essential. Roam the corridors of any giant government office building. Half are parasites drawing an undeserved paycheck.
But apparently the world can’t turn without them.

The goal — to enslave humanity with a marxist satanic one world order, then you get the medical martial law, forced vaccinations, gun confiscation, property and asset seizure, and microchip. They want you dependent on government for a solution.

This is not a conspiracy theory. This is a satanic reality. Enjoy the ride, sheeple. Or be prepared to fight for your life and soul.

Nazifaggot governors are public servants, not rulers. All of ’em — your mayors and police chiefs too. Damned Traitors think this kung-flu will stop Military Justice and hangings. The power grabbers are going down for the count.

President Trump and the Marines are the KO Punch!

This is not about health. They have a lot of changes they plan to make, like eliminating non-digital currency and most of our human rights.

It wouldn’t be so bad, if the spoiled, entitled generation would stay home instead of insisting they get to party.
