New York City Police Use Pandemic To Create COVID-19 Checkpoints

Do you LOVE America?


    This article was originally published by Mass Private I at Activist Post. 

    A recent article in The New York Post revealed how the NYPD used the pandemic to justify creating COVID-19 checkpoints.

    New York officials have stopped 353 cars at entrances to the Big Apple to warn travelers of the mandatory two-week quarantine rule. The stops were made from Wednesday through Friday at bridges and tunnels, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office.

    Police are using the pandemic as an excuse to circumvent the Fourth Amendment by asking a vehicle’s occupants to answer questions like have they spent more than 24 hours during the previous 14 days in any state on New York’s restricted list?

    The city has the audacity to claim that these stops are “quick and educational.” There is nothing quick and educational about being stopped and questioned by government officials.

    Is there anything educational about fining people $10,000 dollars?

    Travelers who violate the quarantine rule could face up to $10,000 in fines. There are currently 35 states plus Puerto Rico on the list.

    Earlier this year, The Orlando Sentinel called COVID-19 checkpoints security theater and worried about the cost to taxpayers. COVID-19 checkpoints have also been set up in Rhode IslandNorth CarolinaColoradoMississippiLouisiana, and Texas.

    A WKZO article shows U.S. military personnel conducting a COVID-19 checkpoint at Penn Station.

    A few dozen travelers got off a train from Miami at New York City’s Penn Station on Thursday and were greeted by a team of public health workers and mayoral office staff who handed them informational fliers about the state’s new COVID-19 quarantine rules.

    Government officials use COVID-19 as an excuse to question and interrogate visitors.

    The team, comprised of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s public engagement unit and the city’s COVID-19 Test & Trace Corps, were running a checkpoint starting at Penn Station on Thursday to ensure that visitors from any of the 35 states on New York’s travel advisory were aware of the 14-day quarantine mandate.

    Imagine getting off a train or bus in New York City and being forced to go through a government checkpoint. This is America, you say? I can refuse to answer their questions, right?

    People who refuse to answer their questions could be fined anywhere from $2,000-$10,000.

    A spokeswoman for City Hall said refusing to fill out the quarantine form could subject travelers from designated states to a $2000 fine, and violations of the quarantine orders could result in a $10,000 fine.

    Three years ago, I revealed that police have created thirty-three different types of checkpoints. But this latest ploy; using a pandemic as an excuse to create another police checkpoint, is inexcusable.

    COVID-19 checkpoints make a mockery of police reform and trample our Bill of Rights. It is only a matter of time before COVID-19 checkpoints spread across the country.

      1. I guess that answering the questions in German and placing stickers of Hitler, Swastikas, Goebels, and Mengela on the forms would be the way to go on that!

      2. If one cannot avoid wearing a mask, I would suggest decorating it with a Hitler mustache.

      3. I think that this may be done in order to terrorize people primarily from Washington DC, since both Maryland and Virgina are on the bad states list and every other North East state is on the good state list. Colorado, Michigan, Hawaaii, Oregon, South Dakota, and New Mexico are also on the good states list.

        I refer to Pennsylvania as the Middle East. Nobody else does, but I am technically correct on that. Prove me wrong!

      5. What covid response is is a CIA tactic. It is in fact attacks on individuals by institutions. Saul Alinsky must have been one of the most evil and one of the most stupid people that has ever lived in America. We are watching his 13 Rules For Radicals playout in real time. This is 100% illegal. It employs violations of RICO laws, in addition to fraud, and constitutional rights violations. It is a proven fact that torture is counter-productive. It has been proven that torture does not work, but Saul Alinsky’s 13 Rules For Radicals employ psychological torture in addition to the total destruction of peoples lives through the use of entirely illegal tactics. There is nothing radical about Saul Alinsky’s tactics at all, unless radically status quo, radically fascist, and radically elitist could be considered radical. 

        It seems that Charles Manson has taken over “The Movement.” We now have Hitler groupies in America, romanticizing Adolph Hitler. On the other extreme side we have BLM that is in league with the Weather Underground terrorists Bill Aires and Susan Rosenberg. The fact that BLM is funded by Wall Street and large international corporations proves that it has been hijacked by the very people that the original BLM protesters were protesting. BLM is a pro Wall Street astro-turph network that is a violent version of The Tea Party astroturph network that was hijacked by David Koch and Wall Street. Check the sponsors and you will see that they are funded by many of the same institutions. 

        The instutions are the problem, and BLM is an agent of the instututions that have destroyed America. 

        Saul Alinsky must have known absolutely nothing about human nature at all. Or, maybe he just assumed that everyone was the same as Elliot Abrahms. I refuse to provide positive reinforcement for sick, sadistic, illegal, destructive behavior. Rewarding evil behavior encourages more evil behavior and makes the world a more evil place to live in.

        Saul Alinsky must have had, and those employing his tactics have severe behavioral problems that are so severe that their behavioral problems have led them to a life of serial criminality of sadistic, abusive, predatory crime. It is really sick as hell. These are psychopaths that belong in federal penitentiaries. They have dedicated their lives to being wrong, illegal, and evil. It is total insanity.

        A tactic that would be legal would be a petition to change a regulation or law or boycott a company that is violating human rights or the environment or something of that nature. That is not an illegal evil, sadistic cowardly tactic. The White House even has allowed people to create petitions on its website.

        Saul Alinsky was not a community organizer. He was a community terrorist.

        Saul Alinsky uses premeditated, deliberate, criminally organized tactics with the clear intent to harm an individual through targeted harrassment and stalking.

        Since the stated goal is to harm, and isolate an individual and the stated techniques are the use of targeted harrassment and stalking, which are both illegal also, this is organized crime in violation of RICO laws.

        Here are his tactics that do not work, since they stupid, wrong, sadistic, evil and illegal.

        1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.
        2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.
        3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
        4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.
        5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
        6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.
        7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news.
        8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
        9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.
        10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.
        11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.
        12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.
        13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
