EDITOR’S NOTE: Some said this “can’t happen here.” It’s happening. The cure has become worse than the problem. We are living in a totalitarian state.
China Is Literally Dragging People Out Of Their Homes And Sending Them To “Mass Quarantine Camps”
Department of Defense: The Military Has MASS Quarantine Camps Set Up In The U.S.
Coronavirus Keeps Spreading: Forced Quarantines & Mass Camps for the Infected in the U.S.
All of a sudden, people all over the country are very afraid of travelers from New York, Louisiana and other COVID-19 “hotspots” across the nation. In fact, as you will see below, some states are now trying to intercept travelers from other states and force them into quarantine.
Measures that would have been unthinkable just a few short weeks ago have now become a reality, and things are likely to get even crazier in the days ahead. If this pandemic is causing this much fear already even though less than 3,000 Americans have died so far, what will the level of fear be if 30,000 or 300,000 Americans die?
Unfortunately, many experts are now warning that the death toll will eventually get very high in this country. For example, on Sunday Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN that he expects to see more than 100,000 deaths in the U.S. alone…
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top expert on infectious diseases, predicted Sunday that the United States will end up with “millions” of cases of coronavirus and up to 200,000 deaths by the time the pandemic ends, though he cautioned that any projection of mortality statistics could “easily” end up being wrong.
“Looking at what we’re seeing now, I would say between 100,000-200,000 [deaths],” Fauci said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
This virus spreads so easily from person to person, and once it gets loose in a city it can spread like wildfire.
Right now, New York City is being hit harder than anywhere else in the country. At this point close to 700 members of the NYPD have tested positive for the virus, and the public transportation system is being flooded with calls from sick employees…
The MTA’s 24-hour hot line for workers with coronavirus symptoms is constantly crashing because it’s being flooded with calls — and higher-ups are bracing for a mass sickout, transit insiders told The Post.
Bus and subway employees already called out sick at three times the normal rate last week, prompting the MTA to dramatically reduce service.
Overall, the death toll in New York has reached nearly 1,000, and many believe that what we have seen so far is just the beginning.
Needless to say, hospitals are rapidly being overwhelmed, and basic medical supplies are being used up fast.
Fortunately, a lot of outside help is coming in. On Sunday, I was greatly encouraged to learn that Samaritan’s Purse is actually putting up a field hospital in Central Park…
Dozens of people worked in a drizzle to erect the facility for an expected influx of COVID-19 patients at the epicenter of the US coronavirus pandemic.
Samaritan’s Purse, a US-based Christian global relief agency, is setting up the hospital on the park’s East Meadow lawn, where workers in face masks unloaded a white tarp and other equipment on the grass. The site is right across from one of the facilities in the Mount Sinai hospital group.
But as other states have watched the nightmare that is currently unfolding in New York, they have become greatly alarmed, and some have even taken measures to try to prevent New Yorkers from spreading the virus to their communities.
Beginning on Friday, authorities in Rhode Island started stopping vehicles “with New York plates”, and any New Yorkers that were discovered were forced into “14 days of self-quarantine”…
Rhode Island police began stopping cars with New York plates Friday. On Saturday, the National Guard will help them conduct house-to-house searches to find people who traveled from New York and demand 14 days of self-quarantine.
“Right now we have a pinpointed risk,” Governor Gina Raimondo said. “That risk is called New York City.”
When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo found out about this, he went ballistic, because it specifically discriminated against citizens of his state.
So Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo later expanded the directive to include anybody coming into Rhode Island from any other state…
Gov. Gina Raimondo instead has expanded the order to include ‘any person’ coming to Rhode Island from another state to ‘immediately self-quarantine for 14 days’.
The directive, signed late Saturday, does not apply to health workers or those working in public safety. It reads: ‘Any person coming to Rhode Island from another state for a non-work-related purpose must immediately self-quarantine for 14 days.’
Of course, Rhode Island is basically the size of a postage stamp, and so not that many people are too worried about what they are doing.
But Florida is a much bigger deal.
Florida has already been forcing anyone flying in from New York to self-quarantine for 14 days, and on Friday Governor Ron DeSantis expanded that directive to include anyone traveling into the state from Louisiana…
New Orleans is experiencing a coronavirus surge of more than 1,000 infections linked to the Mardi Gras celebration in February, sending Louisiana’s total number of cases past 3,300 as of Saturday. DeSantis wants to intercept any Louisiana travelers from “seeding” the virus in Florida.
It’s about a three-hour drive from New Orleans to Pensacola, Florida, and panhandle officials had expressed concerns to him about travelers fleeing the Bayou State and carrying the virus into Florida.
In fact, a highway checkpoint has already been set up on Interstate 10 so that police can monitor who is coming into the state…
“Look, we’re either trying to fight this virus or we are not,” DeSantis said of his plan that includes a checkpoint on Interstate 10 at the Alabama line and National Guard members greeting travelers from the New York City area at airports.
In the days ahead, more states may start implementing such measures.
So if you are still not where you want to be to ride out this pandemic, you need to get there as quickly as possible.
We still don’t know how bad this crisis is going to become. It may fizzle out with just a few hundred thousand deaths globally, or we may end up with a nightmare scenario in which millions die.
We just don’t know yet.
But those that are running things are starting to act like we are facing a worst-case scenario, and that should deeply alarm us all.
For instance, I was quite surprised to learn that officials from U.S. Northern Command have isolated themselves inside the giant Cheyenne Mountain facility in Colorado…
‘To ensure that we can defend the homeland despite this pandemic, our command and control watch teams here in the headquarters split into multiple shifts and portions of our watch team began working from Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, creating a third team at an alternate location as well,’ Air Force General Terrence O’Shaughnessy, head of U.S. Northern Command and NORAD, said during a Facebook Live town hall with those under his command.
Perhaps such a move is warranted during a time of great crisis, but what really got my attention was the following statement that O’Shaughnessy made…
‘My primary concern was … are we going to have the space inside the mountain for everybody who wants to move in there, and I’m not at liberty to discuss who’s moving in there,’ O’Shaughnessy added.
Apparently so many people were clamoring to get inside Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station that he was concerned that there wouldn’t be room for them all?
I don’t like the sound of that at all.
We live in very strange times, and they are about to get even stranger.
I hope that you are somewhere safe, and I hope that you are well stocked up for the long, dark months that are ahead of us.

Hawaii demands that all new arrivals go into Quarantine for 14 days. Fine with me, I don’t like most tourists. If they quit coming here I could care less.
Locals are under a “essential services only” order.
I went to the dump, the grocery store, Post office, and feed
store last week, after the “lockdown” was imposed.
I am prepared, I probably one of the reasons Mac “locked” down this site because there were a few guys that would hijack an article like this and talk about things they wanted to, kind of like a SHTF version of Brietbart or Hill.
If you read the world news this isn’t just America, doing this stupidity.
What is interesting is it is all big cities. While the government issues “orders”, because I’m very rural it virtually no immediate affect on me. The Fire department this AM got lost on a road looking for something, got stuck because they didn’t know they can’t go down that road. They usually ask, but not today.
Get out of the city. Don’t talk to cops. Prepare because the government can’t help you and is your enemy.
Watch the Movie, “Escape from New York” with Kurt Russell.. Classic.
Just wall of the entire State of NY, and use it as a dump and let the infected NY Cockroaches scavenge through the trash and let them fight it out among themselves. NY is a concrete Ghetto.
Hey where Genius and Braveheart, FishandMud, I bet you are friggin glad you escaped TN and back to your families homestead in N Georgia, about now eh? Remember me telling you to go now back years ago, because in SHTF, they may close off the State lines and you won’t be able to get to your BOL. See ya’ll on the other side of this killing machine. Hey many of us said the great culling is a coming. What asssholes don’t die from this virus in this round now, our flying lead will finish off when needed later. Got your lists?? Stay alert and never give up or give up your Guns.
Hey relik! Good to see your still kickin’. Hows that solar coming along? I think we should quarantine Kalfornians for a month to see if they are communists lol. All is well here, I think I will pull my retirement and just take what I can get. I can always do other stuff or my old job if I want too. Aloha!
Too little, too late.
Rule #1: Avoid crowds. The let the flu take its natural course. But no, Republicans and Democrats are using this flu to build their power and wealth. Get it yet?
sitting here in break at a resort in Virginia Beach, VA. we are opened for business as are a few others. when I parked today, I noted license plates from NY, NC, FL, GA and others… yet the governor has extended his power grab (stay at home) through June 10! I keep wondering why resorts are opened for interstate travel, but others are being told to stay home. This entire thing stinks right to hell…
In the U.S., smoking-related deaths are apparently almost half a million a year. If the corona deaths reach that number in the U.S., I might get worried. At the moment, they’re less than 1% of that.
Why do you never allow my comments? Pussy.
Yep, all State borders locked down here Downunder. Complete over-reaction; only 20 deaths in the whole nation and not one under 67 years old…
