Turkey Politicians

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY NOVEMBER 19, 2020

         HOW IS YOUR THANKSGIVING PLANNING GOING? GOT THE TURKEY YET? GOT YOUR GUEST LIST? IF YOU LIVE IN THE STATE OF WASHINGTON, FORGET IT. GOVERNOR JAY INSLEE HAS EFFECTIVELY CANCELED AMERICA’S MOST FAVORITE AND NON CONTROVERSIAL HOLIDAY AS PART OF HIS NEW COVID LOCKDOWN ORDER.

         SO AFTER NINE MONTHS OF BEING TOLD WE SHOULD WEAR MASKS, WASH HANDS AND STAY SIX FEET APART IT WASN’T ENOUGH. THIS GETS TO WHAT ASSOCIATE JUSTICE SAMUEL ALITO TALKED ABOUT IN A SPEECH LAST WEEK TO THE FEDERALIST SOCIETY LAWYERS CONVENTION. ALITO SAID OUR LIBERTIES ARE SLOWLY BEING TAKEN AWAY, NOT BY CONGRESS AND STATE LEGISLATURES, BUT BY INDIVIDUAL GOVERNORS AND MAYORS WHO DECIDE WHAT THEY WILL ALLOW US TO DO.

         WHILE NOT DIMINISHING THE THREAT OF COVID AND THE IMPACT IT HAS HAD ON LIVES, JOBS AND THE ECONOMY, ALITO WARNED EXECUTIVE ORDERS LEAD TO “THE DOMINANCE OF LAWMAKING BY EXECUTIVE FIAT RATHER THAN LEGISLATION.” UNDER ANYONE’S DEFINITION THAT CAN LEAD TO FACISM.

         LIBERTIES LOST ARE DIFFICULT TO REGAIN. WHAT’S NEXT, CANCEL CHRISTMAS? PROBABLY. I’M CAL THOMAS.
