I wonder why he needs them

The President requires enhanced detention powers... because the virus must be arrested!
The Justice Department has quietly asked Congress for the ability to ask chief judges to detain people indefinitely without trial during emergencies — part of a push for new powers that comes as the coronavirus spreads through the United States.

The move has tapped into a broader fear among civil liberties advocates and Donald Trump’s critics — that the president will use a moment of crisis to push for controversial policy changes. Already, he has cited the pandemic as a reason for heightening border restrictions and restricting asylum claims. He has also pushed for further tax cuts as the economy withers, arguing that it would soften the financial blow to Americans. And even without policy changes, Trump has vast emergency powers that he could legally deploy right now to try and slow the coronavirus outbreak.
Wait, the President is using a crisis for the benefit of the American people? Surely that is an impeachable offense.

They're afraid Trump might act Nationally like Gavin Newsome is acting locally in California. It's OK if Democrats Rob you of your Civil Liberties.

We're applauding this now because Trump is in charge. What if the the Dems take the Presidency and retain these sweet, sweet emergency powers?

Since the stock market and black employment are kaput, and everything is collapsing, and it may even be the end of the country, Trump has nothing left to lose. He should declare himself Emperor and kill these people. He should become the national savior.

Blogger Azimus March 21, 2020 2:48 PM  

On the surface, this seems like a terrible idea. How about asking for that power for THIS national emergency, and have a sunset to it?

Anytime is a good time to remind everyone that General George Casey said "And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse."

President Trump is going to restrict the border during the pandemic?! I can only hope General Casey's fellow travelers will go on the record early and often on how restricting the border will be a greater tragedy than the Chinese flu.

I listened to a room-temp IQ black, female nurse (RN)raving about how the GE was using the corona crisis to declare martial law and become president for life. It was fascinating, among other things she claimed that Trump's family had murdered Tesla and stolen his work and now Trump was using "secret beam-rays" to enslave black people.

She blew a fuze when I told her she needed to get out of all that Nation of Islam stuff and read her Bible instead.

I hope the GE gets everything he's asking for and unleashes the storm. Let justice be done, let the wicked and evildoers be punished, let the innocent be vindicated.

"We're applauding this now because Trump is in charge. What if the the Dems take the Presidency and retain these sweet, sweet emergency powers?"

That's the cuck response. Imagine if I said, ''yeah it's good we're using guns against our enemy, but maybe we should consider disarming ourselves in the hopes that our enemy who has sworn to destroy us will take it easy on us!" It's very dumb, of COURSE Trump supporters would applaud Trump doing effective things and would decry their enemy doing effective things. What kind of shrooms are you on that you feel it is even worth pointing out?

What if the Dems take the presidency and enact these powers, or simply act as if they've been enacted and have a judge back them up?

Truth is, various emergency powers have been in place at least since FDR. What keeps presidents from using them is the same thing that keeps Democrats from banning guns when they're in power: fear of a public backlash. If we win and restore civilization, that's what will prevent them in the future too. If we lose, it doesn't matter what's on the books, because they will change it to suit them.

Celebrities are going bonkers, especially several with suspected pizza connections. I don't know if they're scared of the Storm, having drug withdrawals, or just acting out because they aren't getting their usual amount of attention.

Ever watched rotting meat rupture? If the meat's a solid chunk you can generally carve off the rotten part and the rest is fine. Not so much though, with a hotdog slurry that has never been allowed to set. That stuff is foul through and through before you can ever see it. Only your spirit-testin' nose will warn you.

"Justice department asks congress." Why would Barr ask congress? And how do we know this isn't Barr intentionally giving Trump a publicity headache because of his annoyance with Trump's tweets? I see absolutely no reason to trust this fat swamp beast.

Re loss of civil liberties: This came up and it's worth a reminder: A PNAC document quote below is appropriate and then to keep that critical point of balance in the universe between secular rabidity and religious rabidity we can ponder the theotoxin, I mean theology of Zachariah 14 with emphasis on vs 6, but read it all for fun because you only get one apocalypse. My online Rabbi was gloating about the coming death of the wicked and enemies of Hashem, Hakodosh Baruch Hu the blessed one the annointed one, but I personally am making no predictions. He is the expert. Read Zachariah 14 - it's a page and a half.

“Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor… And advanced forms of biological warfare that can target specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.”

Interestingly, the UK government is introducing a Corona virus bill that has sweeping powers to detain people designated by 'trusted' persons as a danger to the health of the community. I'm thinking many people who write nasty comments about ZOG will be on that list.

I assume this process of emergency laws will be global. A one world government is being constructed before our eyes.

Blogger English Tom March 22, 2020 8:50 AM  

BTW Not only did Bill Gates and Soros run pandemic simulation exercises before the pandemic appeared, but there was another exercise called Crimson Contagion about a pandemic outbreak in 2019. The coincidence of exercises taking place and then the thing happening, all since 2001 and the 9/11 exercises, deserves a special designation a la the Streisand/Mandela effect.

Never let a good crisis go to waste, especially one you yourself have created. See my comment above.

The only thing notable about Trump requesting detention authority during a public health crisis...is that it is Federal. The Feds do not tend to bother with these things. Disease fighting and public health are state problems and they already have a zillion powers and regulations, which are unusually broad (depending on the state)....everything from venereal disease, to tuberculosis, to leprosy, to malaria, to typhoid, to meat safety, solid waste, medical waste, dead animals. You name it.

The only interest the Feds normally have is in regard to diseases brought to US ports and the disease problems of the Indian nations. The public health service officers checked each boatload of immigrants and was anxious about every ship that put into US port cities....even American ships.

They obviously knew Congress would refuse, and loudly. So why do you ask a question when you already know the answer? To get the answer on record.

Most people are far more afraid of the virus than they are of 2000-era black helicopter scenarios. They'll just see Trump trying to do what's necessary and the Democrats being obstructionist and putting politics first.

Blogger eclecticme March 22, 2020 7:21 PM  

Dems complained that Trump is Hitler and a fascist.
Now they are complaining that the fed govt is not seizing control of everything. See e.g. Gov. Cuomo.
