New York Mayor Bill de Blasio Threatens $1000 Fines for Violating Social Distance
written by GEG | April 21, 2020
New York Mayor de Blasio, who says the city will remain closed until July or August, is calling for people to snitch on those who are not social distancing and says this is needed in “wartime” with an invisible enemy. He is asking people to send in photos and locations of any violations they see so police can respond immediately. He threatened $1,000 fines for those who fail to obey. “The folks who still don’t get it are gonna have to pay a price,” he said. [We wonder what will happen in the future when everyone realizes that de Blasio is the one who still doesn’t get it. When the price of lost jobs and massive vaccine injuries is added up, is he “gonna have to pay a price?” This nonsense will not stop until politicians, scientists-for-hire, and fake-news reporters are held personally responsible for their deeds.] -GEG
Mayor Bill de Blasio doubled down on his controversial push to get New Yorkers to rat on their neighbors who are not social distancing — insisting it was needed in “wartime” with an invisible enemy.
“In war times, in a time when people’s lives are threatened … I’m sorry, this is not snitching, this is saving lives,” Hizzoner said of his “New Squeal” push for New Yorkers to snap photos of those gathering in public.
“You’ve got to do it,” he said, insisting it was the only way of “protecting your own family” and fellow Gothamites.
“When we were threatened with terrorism, no one doubted that it was right if you saw something to call it in immediately,” he said of suspicious behavior.
“This is just the same reality, we just have a different enemy — an enemy you can’t see, but an enemy that has taken so many lives,” he said.
“We need those photos. We need those locations so we can enforce right away.”
The mayor conceded that staying inside was only going to get harder with the arrival of gorgeous Springtime temperatures — but threatened to dole out $1,000 fines for those he failed to heed social distancing guidelines.
“If you don’t understand it yet, we’re gonna have to get tougher and tougher,” he said.
As of Sunday, the city had issued a total 244 summonses and fines of up to $1,000 thanks to “proactive enforcement efforts” — not including extra ones from the NYPD in response to 311 or 911 calls, a City Hall spokesperson told The Post.
On Saturday alone, the NYPD said it issued 60 summonses and made two arrests during patrols on restaurants, bars and supermarkets to ensure social distancing was being maintained, the force said.
De Blasio noted that the fines were a hefty blow for many in the middle of an economic crisis.
Ron Paul Reveals the Dire Consequences of Quarantines and Business Shutdowns

Ron Paul wrote that the coronavirus shutdown is worse than the disease, because the shutdown has thrust millions of Americans into poverty. Many have died this past month because medical care has been postponed to make resources available for coronavirus cases. Meanwhile, hospitals are laying off thousands, because the much ballyhooed pandemic never materialized.
Ron Paul Interviewed David Stockman, legendary investor, former congressman, and budget director under President Reagan, who says that mainstream media is terrorizing the public and leading America to commit economic suicide. Over the past four weeks, 22-million Americans filed for unemployment compensation, which equals the number of jobs added over the past ten years of recovery. He says the state of New York, the epicenter of the alleged COVID-19 ‘outbreak’, had less than one coronavirus death out of every 100,000 people. That’s a fatality risk of one-one-thousandth of one percent.
Stockman says the US economy was already fragile, with most people living hand to mouth and, unless the public awakens from its stupor, the result will be a financial crisis like the world has never seen. -GEG
From California to New Jersey, Americans are protesting in the streets. They are demanding an end to house arrest orders given by government officials over a virus outbreak that even according to the latest US government numbers will claim fewer lives than the seasonal flu outbreak of 2017-2018.
Across the US, millions of businesses have been shut down by “executive order” and the unemployment rate has skyrocketed to levels not seen since the Great Depression. Americans, who have seen their real wages decline thanks to Federal Reserve monetary malpractice, are finding themselves thrust into poverty and standing in breadlines. It is like a horror movie, but it’s real.
Last week the UN Secretary General warned that a global recession resulting from the worldwide coronavirus lockdown could cause “hundreds of thousands of additional child deaths per year.” As of this writing, less than 170,000 have been reported to have died from the coronavirus worldwide.
Many Americans have also died this past month because they were not able to get the medical care they needed. Cancer treatments have been indefinitely postponed. Life-saving surgeries have been put off to make room for coronavirus cases. Meanwhile hospitals are laying off thousands because the expected coronavirus cases have not come and the hospitals are partially empty.
What if the “cure” is worse than the disease?
Countries like Sweden that did not lock down their economy and place the population under house arrest are faring no worse than countries that did. Sweden’s deaths-per-million from coronavirus is lower than in many lockdown countries.
Likewise, US states that did not arrest citizens for merely walking on the beach are not doing worse than those that did. South Dakota governor Kristi Noem said last week, “we’ve been able to keep our businesses open and allow people to take on some personal responsibility.” South Dakota has recorded a total of seven coronavirus deaths.
Kentucky, a strict lockdown state, is five times more populated than South Dakota, yet it has some 20 times more coronavirus deaths. If lockdown and house arrest are the answer, shouldn’t those numbers be reversed, with South Dakota seeing mass death while Kentucky dodges the coronavirus bullet?
When Anthony Fauci first warned that two million would die, there was a race among federal, state, and local officials to see who could rip up the Constitution fastest. Then Fauci told us if we do what he says only a quarter of a million would die. They locked America down even harder. Then, with little more than a shrug of the shoulders, they announced that a maximum of 60,000 would die, but maybe less. That is certainly terrible, but it’s just a high-average flu season.
Imagine if we had used even a fraction of the resources spent to lock down the entire population and focused on providing assistance and protection to the most vulnerable – the elderly and those with serious medical conditions. We could have protected these people and still had an economy to go back to when the virus had run its course. And it wouldn’t have cost us six trillion dollars either.
Governments have no right or authority to tell us what business or other activity is “essential.” Only in totalitarian states does the government claim this authority. We should encourage all those who are standing up peacefully and demanding an accounting from their elected leaders. They should not be able to get away with this.
