“Under the US Constitution, in order to restrict the movement of Americans, the government must prosecute and convict you of a crime – only after a fair trial (due process of law) as under the due process clause in 5th Amendment vs. Federal Government and under 14th Amendment vs. State Governments.
“We should be outraged, yet most Americans are too scared and confused to even think. The media is already conditioning Americans to accept another major LOCKDOWN with the sacrifice of all US Constitutional Rights with a flood of daily news stories.

I contracted the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) on a 2015 Nile River cruise from Luxor to Aswan.
Though 71, I thought I just had a cough; I didn’t seek medical attention until returning home four days later.
My resulting diagnosis was the first time I ever heard of coronaviruses. After some light preliminary research, I found that there are seven types: The human coronavirus (HCoV) contains HCoV-229E, HCoV-NL63, HCoV-OC43, HCoVHKU1, SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV, HCoV-229E, HCoV-NL63, HCoV-OC43, and HCoVHKU1 are pathogens of the common cold.
In other words, this family of viruses are all MEDICALLY COMMON COLDS.
When news outlets began the COVID-19 panic party, I was fairly certain this virus would not be overly dangerous to those with healthy immune systems.
With the suspicion that the media might be amplifying the impact of COVID-19, I started a review of past information about fear as a revolutionary tool.
Six years earlier, Dan Butler (1955-2018) wrote a piece predicting a media driven pandemic campaign that would be used to strip us of our Constitutional rights.
Into this mix, I add here a quick summary of coup d’etats from noted historians Nesta Webster, Antony Sutton, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, and many others. Communist coup d’etats all begin with a Reign of Terror:
The French Revolution opened its Reign of Terror by publicly guillotining aristocrats, government officials, and priests. After decapitation, their heads were placed on spikes and paraded through the streets of Paris. Unable to think, Parisians were traumatized, paralyzed, and helpless.
The Bolshevik Revolution began in 1917 with the First Red Terror lasting about a year. According to many scholars, the Russian Red Terror and mass executions didn’t really end until the onset of World War II in 1939.
Mao Zedong and Fidel Castro used the same bloody terror campaigns to cement the mental capture of their people. Anyone who disagreed was killed. Again, everyone was paralyzed with fear. The results of these revolutions were terrible! While the French Revolution exterminated approximately 3,000,000 people, Solzhenitsyn, the brilliant Russian novelist and historian, estimated the ongoing Russian Revolution was responsible for the deaths of more than 60,000,000 Russians.
