COLUMN: The judge strikes a blow at Mask Karens | Opinion
To finish! A federal judge appointed by President Donald Trump, U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, told the Mask Karens to pack sand. Turns out the Centers for Disease Control isn’t in the legislative business after all, and a judge finally said so.
Any sane person knew that, but with this administration it’s a moot point since they don’t have one. They knew it all along, but that didn’t stop those idiots from telling you that an advisory body is the cop on the spot and used it as a scare squad. “Follow the science” my pink, red behind. I watched the videos of airline passengers taking the word. Looks like a lot of happy travelers can start eating peanuts nonstop from takeoff to landing now. But it wasn’t more than two hours before the White House began to object to the judge’s decision. They must. Despite this decision, not everyone is as happy as the guy in seat number 37A. Especially leftist politicians. After all, how can you be controlled now?
How can the puppeteers of fear make us dance to their tune? How can virtue signallers put us to shame? What are they going to manipulate the next election with if they don’t have that? Don’t worry, they’ll find a way. They always do. Because masks have never been linked to your good health. If you think that dust particle mask — that little piece of white, blue, or black paper, or that mind-blowing designer bandana you’re wearing — has already stopped a micron of Chinese virus, you’ve been fooled. No, it’s all about “feeling good”. You can feel good, you are a caring and compassionate person, doing just the right thing. A good citizen who does what is right. It gives some people the comfort they seek for others. As long as you adopt the “awake” view. Or some may really think it helps. This is not the case.
My opinion is that this is just a smokescreen for the real purpose… control and power over you and me. If that goes away, then you’re a threat if you can’t be mandated to comply with the government’s supposed authority. When Judge Mizelle said it was “unconstitutional,” she nailed it. You see, the thing we really need to fear is not a virus – man-made or natural – but the entirely man-made disease called power lust.
The Centers for Disease Control does not have an employee, doctor, nurse, virologist or epidemiologist elected by us. Not a single one is a judicial police officer. They are there to assess and advise. Don’t settle. But this administration doesn’t believe that because any aspect of bureaucracy is authority in the leftist mind. And in the case of the CDC, it has been proven to me to be incompetent, inaccurate and dishonest, and obviously more interested in its own power and influence than public safety.
By overstepping his authority, he diminished my confidence. Frankly, I don’t believe anything the CDC has said is true. This group now says just give us “two more weeks” to assess and advise after two years of showing that these “chin nappies” do nothing. With this, he supports the administration and the decision to challenge Judge Mizelle’s decision. Our founders were wiser than we can know. When they wrote our Constitution, they saw the light of day, like today, where inscrutable and self-interested people would challenge the freedoms guaranteed by that contract. When all this document and the nation it presented would be targeted for destruction.
There are simply people who think that “We the People” must be led by the nose, and we are unable to decide for ourselves. These people are the antithesis of what Americans are. Want to wear a mask and feel safe? Go for it…but if you don’t, well, go for it too. It’s a personal choice, not the government’s. But leftist government is not a matter of choice. No, it’s about his dictates and complying with them.
We are witnessing it and facing it today. Take the example of Biden’s recent nomination to the Supreme Court. It was not about putting the best jurist in the seat, but about putting someone with a documented history of left-wing and questionable decisions and who fit an agenda-driven profile designed to ensure that his agenda will be represented for a life”. “She is the assurance that this lasts and affects our future. You can bet that if the administration’s “Justice Department” insists on this decision and sends it back to the Supreme Court, my money says Ketanji Brown Jackson will oppose it faithfully, as the good “progressive” she is.
Masks are a symbol of fear, and being afraid makes you flexible. The threat of possible death covers the steps the left used in our last election, to use again and again, to affect the outcome. They know that if dying may be the price to pay for exercising a legal voting process, we will follow. They can repeat all the home voting they used before. Don’t worry, you can trust the US Postal Service, mail-in ballots are secure, voters can register remotely, proper identification, and that pesky, inconvenient signature verification won’t be a problem. And heck, why not just send in hazmat friendly crews to help you vote while we’re at it. To grow, you have to “harvest”, right?
Everything that the Chinese virus has brought us plays into the efforts and energies of people who want to bring down this nation and change it. The leftist mantra of “never let a good crisis go to waste” could never have found a better one than this. And even with that, they continue their destruction of our borders, so far allowing some two million (known) illegals to enter our country through the southern border. Then use our tax dollars to ship these untested people across America and to our cities. Are you asking if this is compatible with slowing down or stopping a global virus? Will wearing a mask fix anything? Do you think these morons really care about your health and safety?
I say it’s bull. Instead, they manipulate and divide us, and tell us lie after lie after lie. We don’t elect a king. A president is meant to be our representative and is meant to look out for our best interests, not just in his estimation of what those might be, but within the limits of legitimate power granted and defined in our Constitution and existing laws. He cannot be allowed to reconcile as he goes along, no matter the threat. Do you all remember when some reacted to the attacks of Muslim extremists by calling to ignore our constitutional limits? We were then told that the threat did not justify circumventing the Constitution. Neither does this one.
If we are to endure as free people, we cannot allow fear to influence our way of life. Above all, it is imperative and necessary for the future to respect our Constitution and to face fear. Without it, what’s the point?
To live free is my choice rather than to exist.
