Welcome to the USSA and be ready to give up your travel information, such as where you’re from, where it is you’re going, and how long you’re going to stay.
In America, it used to be dogs have papers; people don’t have papers.
But New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is doubling down against his constituency by signing Executive Order 137, establishing COVID-19 travel registration checkpoints at key entry points into NYC to ensure compliance with the state’s travel restrictions.
Belligerent souls who dare to resist the mayor’s edict are subject to a $10,000 fine or forced quarantine.
Do New Yorkers not realize that they are a Mississippi heartbeat away from total subjugation and stripped of the rest of their rights in a New York minute?
Today, we announced COVID-19 checkpoints at key entry points. @NYCSheriff Fucito joined us to talk about what that means for New Yorkers and visitors to our city.

Well, hells bells, the rest of the country is nearly as far gone.
Maine Governor Janet Mills modified a travel mandate that requires those visiting “Vacationland” who plan to stay in a lodging establishment to show a negative COVID-19 test or opt to self-quarantine for 14 days. Forced testing leads to forced vaccinations. Travelers from five states, including Vermont and New Hampshire, are exempt.
As of August 1st, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker announced that travelers entering the state will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days or show a negative COVID-19 test result. The state is in step 1 of phase 3 of its reopening plan.
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan expanded a mask mandate requiring people over age 5 to wear a face covering in public spaces of all businesses or when outdoors when social distancing cannot be maintained. The state is currently in Phase 2 of its reopening plan.
In the Midwest, Illinois and Indiana are among the many states of the union that have implemented mask mandates and extended shelter-in-place orders to control their states’ citizenry.
In Illinois where residents are restricted from owning firearms, Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s heavy-handed mandates allow criminals to roam freely while law-abiding citizens are locked down in their homes. In Michigan, residents were not even allowed to buy seeds to plant in their gardens, as per the governor’s orders. Seeds were deemed to be non-essential items.
In Atlanta, the June 12th shooting death of Rayshard Brooks at the hands of an Atlanta police officer sparked riots and descent against the Atlanta Police Department. The officer involved was fired before the Georgia Bureau of Investigation had completed its investigation and the mayor’s and district attorney’s rush to judgment to appease the mob has resulted in calls to defund the police department.
There’s a lot of that going around. In the wake of the upheaval and lack of municipal support, the Atlanta Chief of Police has resigned and the officer is suing the city over his firing. Another crazy town.
The state of Nevada is facing a new health crisis as the governor proclaims that racism is a public health crisis. These are the types of proclamations by an elected official that allow the Department of Health do whatever is necessary, without oversight, for the public good during a health crisis. The next move is to probably require all white people to attend cultural sensitivity indoctrination as part of their treatment to cure them of racism.
More craziness comes as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announces that he is authorizing city officials to shut off power and water to any houses or businesses that are hosting “unauthorized” gatherings or parties, according to FoxLA.
California Governor Gavin Newsom continues to press his boot on the necks of 40 million Californians with relentless stay-at-home mandates. Bars, wineries (except his), movie theaters and indoor museums are among businesses that must remain closed.
Now, amid teachers’ refusal to return to school to educate the state’s young, Gov. Newsom is stepping up enforcement of a new law that imposes stiff penalties on parents who hire tutors to teach their students at home. The law that went into effect on January 1st requires parents who hire tutors to pay them as employees, not independent contractors.
The West Coast fell to communism long ago and people don’t even realize it. When you factor in Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon riots, mayhem, and calls to defund their police departments, establishing autonomous zones, and releasing felons from prison while arresting law-abiding citizens, words fail to express the downfall of America.
In a land where wrong is now right, up is down, and bad is good, I guess unicorns really are a national treasure.
At least there’s a new line out of it for our working Sheriffs:
Papers, please! Take out your papers! Have your papers ready for inspection.
