NM Takes Draconian Measures
In arguably the most Draconian response to the COVID-19 pandemic in the country, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham invoked the state’s Riot Control act to lock down the city of Gallup, about 100 miles west of Albuquerque. We’re talking complete, Marshall Law-type lockdown here, enforced by the state police and National Guard, with checkpoints everywhere. No one can enter the city and no one can leave.
A major violation of our Constitutional rights. Does this make any sense for a virus that is akin to the common flu, albeit a bit more contagious?
The response from Grisham is just another in a string of extreme actions from Democrat governors across the nation. Where do these jackasses get their marching orders? Probably from the Grand Poobah of Jackasses, aka the Deep State. The mandate took effect at noon Friday and will last through Monday. All businesses–of which there are very few still open–were ordered to shutdown between 5 p.m. and 8 a.m. during the three-day span. Medical facilities are exempted. Residents are ordered to stay home unless absolutely necessary. Here’s the stunning reaction from Hard News TV 2 upon reporting the lockdown.
