Looking at COVID Tyranny

If the constant rioting, vandalizing, looting and COVID despotism forced on Americans is not a clear enough picture of what a Biden/Dem-Marxist controlled America will look like, then consider the Constitution-stripping actions being rammed down the throats of the Linscott family because wife/mother Elizabeth tested positive for COVID but refused to sign Dem Party contact tracing control documents.

 

I discovered the Linscott plight in a July 21 email from Mat Staver. That email is a bit of a fundraiser which is a worthy cause, but there is a petition you can sign to show your animus for the government largely under the thumb of faulty Globalist science, Dem control freaks and the Dem media propaganda machine.

 

And I am going to toss in a Washington Times and a Life Site News post on the Linscotts for a bit more clarity on Dem Medical Despotism.

 

If you Google the Linscott family battling COVID Tyranny you more than likely into vitriol propaganda or character assassination. One example is Heavy.com that goes out of its to diminish Elizabeth Linscott for being a Trump supporter, an antagonist toward Globalist wishy-washy science and a believer in QAnon stories.

 

Now I’m not really a QAnon proponent because all the Qdrops predicting the demise of the Deep State culprits has never happened. If prosecutions begin I’ll convert to a QAnon believer. What I love about QAnon though is the movement drives anyone connected to the Left nuts. I find that pleasing indeed.

 

In case you have a short attention span, here’s a 2.56 minute video on COVID tyranny and the Linscott family:

Innocent Family Under House Arrest

After one woman refused to sign a state document regarding COVID-19, the county treated her family like criminals. The county put them on house arrest and sent a team of eight Sheriff deputies and health officials in five cars to their residence to slap ankle bracelets on them that will go off if they get more than 200 feet away from their home.

According to the mom, this treatment was not because they were unwilling to self-quarantine. They were planning to do so. It was simply because she was unwilling to sign a document giving up the freedom for their family to take an ambulance in the case of a medical emergency for her infant daughter.

This government document would include a promise to wait on the phone (or on hold) with the government’s office to first receive approval from a bureaucrat prior to taking an “emergency conveyance” (i.e. ambulance) to the hospital. This restriction would have affected family who had not tested positive but had only been exposed to one asymptomatic person.

Help this young family stand up for their freedoms and push back on the government tyranny. Send your fax to the state leaders who are punishing this mom for wanting to have the freedom to care for her daughter in whatever situation arises in the future. – Mat

 

Right now, the Linscott family is outfitted with ankle bracelets. Did they rob a bank or kill someone? No.

Did they want to visit the local restaurants and bars to willfully infect others? Again, no.

They wanted to care for their infant daughter and have the freedom to, if the emergency arose, take her by ambulance to the hospital.

Yet, because of a poorly written, undefined government document this young family has been treated like common criminals.

Answering a knock on the door, her husband was met by eight deputies and a health official that arrived in five cars. When the mother expressed concerns about the document, the mother and father were fitted with ankle bracelets.

The document demands people agree to a long list of orders including:

 

  • One person cannot stay in their own car, alone, and drive across the county line and return home, even though it would be impossible to spread the virus to others in this manner.
  • In a separate demand, the document also requires that people not leave the state … even though it’s clearly impossible for someone to leave their state while staying inside their own county.
  • It requires that they take their “temperature at approximately the same time each day” and report it to the local health department.
  • And, among other demands, “Not travel by any … emergency conveyance … without the (sic) prior approval.”

 

This last one was the main concern for Elizabeth Linscott.

I understand their concerns about this quarantine document. I encountered a similar one when KY Gov. Andy Beshear sent a document to all members of the Maryville Baptist church who remained in their cars during an Easter parking lot service. Our clients did not sign. We sued and got an injunction against the governor!

Help send a barrage of faxes directly to these government tyrants to demand freedom.

Our new fax campaign targets the Kentucky governor, state health cabinet, attorney general, county health department, sheriff, and county attorney. We need to peacefully demand they let this family have the ability to self-quarantine without being treated like criminals.

 

This all started for Elizabeth when she wanted to go visit her grandparents. Even though she was experiencing no symptoms, out of an abundance of caution, she got tested before the trip. Her test came back positive.

That’s when it started.

“If I have to go to the ER, if I have to go to the hospital, I’m not going to wait to get the [government’s] approval to go,” Elizabeth Linscott told Fox.

“Although she never refused to self-quarantine, ‘that’s exactly what the director of the public health department told the judge,'” Fox News reported. Based on that false information the judge signed off on the order and five cars ended up at the Linscott home with a health official dressed in a full suit and gas mask to put ankle bracelets on the couple.

This is the America that we live in right now. Are we going to accept local officials to mis-represent law-abiding citizens and place them under house arrest OR are we going to change this and fight to regain our freedoms today?

 

Send your fax right now.

 

Liberty Counsel Action is passionate about giving patriots across America the ability to unite and fight for our freedoms. We can only continue on this path to restore liberty because of your help and financial partnership.

Give today to empower us to demand Americans be set free to use commonsense again, from Kentucky to the halls of Congress, and across the nation.

 

Thank you for your concern and your partnership with Liberty Counsel Action.

Onward,

 

Mat Staver
Chairman

 

P.S. No one should have to choose between medical care for themselves and their infant or house arrest. This is what happens when government is without constitutional bounds. Now is the time for us to unite around this family and help restore their freedoms. Send a fax demanding that powerful politicians and bureaucrats allow this family to self-quarantine in peace and not have to abandon all hope for the hopefully unnecessary care provided by an ambulance.

If you cannot send a fax today, please sign our petition to leaders and to the White House urging them to provide national leadership to protect our basic freedoms and liberties.

You are the reason that we can continue the vision God has given to wake up America and we are very grateful for you. If you can support Liberty Counsel Action with a donation of any size today, we would deeply appreciate your partnership with us in this mission. Again, thank you and God bless.

America, it’s happening: Gov’t knocking on doors, jailing COVID-19 patients

Washington Times

 

A woman in Kentucky, Elizabeth Linscott, who tested positive for COVID-19 has been ordered by local health department authorities to stay at home — ordered, and then when she balked, slapped with court papers and shackled around the ankle with a monitor that basically sounds an alarm if she leaves her residence.

 

Linscott’s husband, Isaiah, received the same treatment.

 

It’s happening, America. Wake up and smell the contact tracing — the “new normal” that allows government to knock on doors and demand voluntary self-quarantining compliance from free citizens, else face mandatory, court-approved house arrest.

 

Leftists have worked hard to play down the dangers of a government that’s given the authority to oversee private citizens’ health decisions, i.e. the new coronavirus. Democratic Rep. Bobby Rush’s staff, for example, in an email in May, in several angry, arrogant emails in May, in fact, fought tooth and nail to downplay the dangers to citizens’ freedom that are inherent within the congressman’s H.R. 6666, the “COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act” — the dangers that call for huge amounts of money, up to $100 billion, actually, to be thrown local health departments’ way to “trace and monitor the contacts of infected individuals, and to support the quarantine of such contacts, through mobile health units and, as necessary … at [citizens’] residence.” In other words: Money for government to knock on citizens’ doors and demand they self-quarantine — or else.

 

And left-leaning members of the media have gone into overdrive to ensure such truths of contact tracing are similarly squelched.

 

Reuters, for instance, did some quick damage control, following widespread criticisms of — and fears about — Rush’s H.R. 6666.

 

“False claim: H.R. 6666 bill allows strangers to enter your house, test you for COVID-19 and take family members into quarantine,” one Reuters headline stated in May. “The bill says nothing about forced testing, forced entry to people’s houses or the removal of family members to be quarantined.”

 

That’s called smoke and mirrors.

 

The bill hasn’t yet passed — but here we have, in this Kentucky couple, a perfect example of how it would play in the real world, in real time, in a real COVID-19 so-called voluntary self-quarantining case.

 

Here’s what happened — here’s what is happening right now — in Radcliff, Kentucky: Linscott said she voluntarily went to be tested for COVID-19 on July 11 because she was going to visit her grandparents and wanted to make sure she wasn’t going to infect them. On July 12, The Associated Press reported, Linscott said the health department in her community notified her of a positive test for the virus, and emailed her a form to sign that required her to self isolate and check in each day at the clinic. It was all for the good of the public; to “prevent the introduction, transmission and spread” of the coronavirus in the state, according to the document’s text, as reported by the AP.

 

Linscott refused to sign.

 

Why?

 

Truthfully — it’s her right. It’s her right as an American citizen to refuse.

 

But this is the “new normal,” remember. This is the day and age of the coronavirus, contact tracing and the big boot of government that can stamp out individual freedom, individual choice, for the collective good.

 

“Linscott,” the AP wrote, “said she declined to sign because of one sentence: ‘I will not travel by any public, commercial or heath care conveyance such as ambulance, bus, taxi, airplane, train or boat without the prior approval of the Department of Health.’”

 

What if her child became sick? What if time were of the essence, and she had to run somewhere?

 

“I could not comply to having to call the public health department prior if I had an emergency, or I had to go pick something up for my child or myself as a necessity and could not wait,” Linscott said, AP reported.

 

So she said no to the form.

 

And the local health bureaucrats didn’t like that.

 

So they went to court.

 

On July 16, Hardin County Sheriff John Ward’s deputies helped issue the stay-at-home order from a Hardin County Circuit Court judge, and affix Linscott — and her husband, too — with ankle monitors. Knock. Knock.

 

“I open up the door and there’s like eight different people [there],” said Linscott’s husband, the New York Post reported. “I’m like what the heck’s going on? This guy’s in a suit with a mask, it’s the health department guy, and he has three different papers for us. For me, [my wife] and my daughter.”

 

They’re confined to home for two weeks and required to notify local law enforcement officials if they stray more than 200 feet from their jail cell, err, residence.

 

Welcome to the “new normal,” America. It’s happening.

 

And with contact tracing coming on strong, as well as the accompanying funding to hire and train the necessary numbers of government workers to enforce citizens’ compliance, the Linscotts’ story will soon become commonplace.

 

Of course, as Rush and Reuters and the merry band of “trust me, I’m from the government” types will continue to sell it — this is all voluntary and amicable. Just your friendly health department helpers reaching out their friendly helping hands.

 

And it is. All’s friendly and amicable. So long as you obey.

Kentucky couple fitted with ankle monitor for refusing to sign COVID-19 quarantine order

The wife who tested positive said she was accused of refusing to self-isolate when officers showed up at her door, but ‘that’s not the case at all.’

 

Linscott Ankle Monitors from Wave News

Life Site News

 

(LifeSiteNews) – Health authorities in Hardin County, Kentucky had a woman fitted with an ankle monitor after testing positive for COVID-19, because while she agreed to self-quarantine she refused to sign a list of quarantine conditions she believes went too far.

 

As a precaution before traveling to see her parents in Michigan, Elizabeth Linscott tested positive for COVID-19 last week, WAVE reported. She was asymptomatic. The health department then asked her to sign a Self-isolation and Controlled Movement Agreed Order detailing the conditions of her home confinement, one of which being that she had to contact the department before leaving home.

 

Linscott says she agreed to stay home, but did not want to sign the document because “if I have to go to the ER, if I have to go to the hospital, I’m not going to wait to get the approval to go.” She added that she would still take precautions in such a situation, like notifying the ER of her test results.

 

Fox News added that she subsequently received a text message warning her that the case was being escalated into a law enforcement matter. A few days later, several sheriff’s department officers came to her home.

 

“I open up the door, and there’s like eight different people, five different cars,” Elizabeth’s husband, Isaiah, said. “I’m like, ‘What the heck’s going on?’ This guy’s in a suit with a mask. It’s the health department guy, and he has three papers for us — for me, her and my daughter.” They put ankle monitors on the couple that would trigger if they moved 200 feet away from their home.

 

“We didn’t rob a store. We didn’t steal something. We didn’t hit and run. We didn’t do anything wrong,” Elizabeth stressed. But “that’s exactly what the director of the Public Health Department told the judge, that I was refusing to self-quarantine because of this, and that’s not the case at all. I never said that.” The couple says they will be retaining an attorney to challenge the action.

 

In response, Hardin County Sheriff John Ward confirmed that his office delivered notice of a quarantine court order to an unidentified individual last week, but denied that his office installed a “location monitoring devices” on anyone, USA Today reported. Lincoln Trail District Health Department spokeswoman Terrie Burgan refused to comment on the case.

 

This case, which is not the first instance of Kentucky officials enforcing COVID-19 quarantines with ankle monitors, is only the latest example of the dramatic actions that city, county, and state officials across the United States have taken to restrict private citizens in the name of containing the coronavirus, from banning indoor religious services to encouraging residents to report on neighbors not wearing masks.

 

As of July 20, the United States is estimated to have seen more than 3.9 million cases of COVID-19, with more than 143,000 deaths and 1.8 million recoveries, though questions remain as to just how accurate the official positivity rates and death counts really are.

Adding Good News to Pro-Trump Facebook-Chains


John R. Houk

© May 30, 2020

Shared to me by Diana Houk notifying info the Dem propaganda MSM fails to inform YOU.

 

Unfortunately upon reading the Facebook-Chain, I have discovered the sentiment to be true but much of the specificity to be inaccurate at best. Below where I have determined Pro-Trump assertions as accurate I embedded a link in the phrase. Where I determined the Pro-Trump assertion to be inline with Donald Trump’s sentiment I offer clarification with corresponding embedded links.

 

On a personal level President Trump has made some budget mistakes that could come back to bite America’s future after one term of Office that favors a Globalist mindset more than an American Liberty mindset. NEVERTHELESS President Trump stands for Originalist Constitution interpretation evidenced by Federal Judiciary appointments drive Dem-Marxists nuts; Christian Liberty by protecting Christian voices and Church attendance; the promoting of 2nd Amendment Rights; Promoting Conservative Free Speech in the midst of Dem-MSM-Social Media censorship and that is just off the tip of my thinking.

 

America needs a SECOND Trump term of Office to at the very least stall the full Dem-Marxist indoctrinated transformation of America to allow Liberty loving Americans to confront the Marxist-Globalist totalitarianism foisted by the hands of gullible sheeple unaware their Freedom is being ripped from their very lives.

 

BY THE WAY! When looters come to your homes and businesses YOU do have the right to shoot no matter the condemnation of a derelict Leftist media or Dem Communists!!!

While so many work tirelessly to make Donald Trump out to be a buffoon, over the last week he did the following, but you probably won’t hear about it:

 

  1. Made vaccines voluntary not mandatory. Military will check purity and distribute vaccines

 

  1. Defunded WHO forever [Blog Editor: The “forever” assertion was not accurate when this Facebook-Chain began, but I just found out that as of 5/29/20 President Trump has terminated a U.S. relationship with the W.H.O.] and wants an investigation into its operations [SEE HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE]

 

  1. Cancelled the Democrats HR 6666 Bill, known as the Covid19 TRACE Act that was the basis for Bill Gates’s diagnosis and tracking project, which was also cancelled. [Blog Editor: The only fact here is a Bill with three numbers of the Mark of the Beast (666) has been proposed to surveil Americans. It hasn’t passed the Dem majority House. It is doubtful it would even get out of a Committee of the GOP majority Senate. AND I have serious doubts President Trump would support let alone sign a spy on Americans Bill. SEE HERE & HERE.]

 

  1. Cancelled Bill Gates project known as ID2020 [Blog Editor: ID2020 is an evil Orwellian Big Brother spy on Americans project. Other than Facebook variations of this list I have found no legitimate information that President Trump has a connection to any for-or-against this massive spy on ordinary people campaign cooked up by Left-Wing Globalists.]

 

  1. Opened a complaint platform to report censorship on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. It was overrun with complaints. They got the evidence.

 

  1. Executive Order to reopen states: Governors who refuse to reopen will be sued. [Blog Editor: There is no Executive Order to open States; however there is the threat of withholding Federal Funding for various Federal-to-State programs. SEE HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE.]

 

  1. Executive Order for W.H. to take over all Electrical Grids: Which will include Internet servers, Broadcasting systems, Electronic systems. [Blog Editor: The EO aimed at protecting the American Electric Grid does not mention the Internet or Televised/Radio broadcasting. The EO does address defending against foreign hacking of Electric Grid. Here is an irony – Left oriented US News & World Report on June 6, 2019 reports on ChiCom propaganda goals with media (which would include Broadcast Media):

 

In a 2016 speech, Chinese President Xi Jinping, leader of the Chinese Communist Party, told state media, “Wherever the readers are, wherever the viewers are, that is where propaganda reports must extend their tentacles.”

 

Today, years after the Chinese government began advising governments abroad and expanding its sphere of influence, Beijing is increasingly looking to global media as a tentacle for sharing its ideology. In line with that effort, Beijing is using a combination of jailing Chinese citizens at home with the use of soft power, technology and even intimidation, according to a new report by the rights group Freedom House.

 

The country’s practices, which include spreading positive reports about the Chinese government and silencing foreign critics, pose a threat to democracies around the world, the report warns.MORE TO READ

 

To my knowledge there is not an EO or Congressional legislation on foreign influence on Broadcast Media, BUT according to a 4/4/20 article from Multichannel News this title emerges: “Trump Orders High-Level Review of Foreign Ownership of FCC Licenses”:

 

President Donald Trump has ordered the review and possible revocation of the applications for, or sales of, FCC licenses, but it has nothing to do with the President’s view of media outlets or his legal team’s threats against TV station owners.

 

Trump issued an executive order Saturday (April 4) establishing the Committee for the Assessment of Foreign Participation in the United States Telecommunications Services Sector.

 

The committee’s aim is to help keep the telecommunications sector secure from foreign threats to national security, including by revoking existing licenses if necessary. The new committee will be chaired by Attorney General William Barr and funded by the Department of Justice.

 

The committee will make recommendations to the FCC on whether it should “dismiss an application, deny an application, condition the grant of an application upon compliance with mitigation measures, modify a license with a condition of compliance with mitigation measures, or revoke a license.” … MORE TO READ]

 

  1. Declares places of worship ‘Essential Services’. Some mayors are fining people for going to church. [Blog Editor: Churches rebel against restrictions. Religious Liberty attacked by arrests, citations and fines: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and more not listed.]

 

  1. Applauded Australia and 116 countries [Blog Editor: As of 5/18/20] for insisting on a China Probe into the spread of Covid19 despite several threats from China about refusing critical exports.

 

He’s changing the world!
