Fears Of Biden’s Harsh COVID Restrictions Are Coming True

More News For You

There were a great many Americans who were concerned that a Joe Biden administration would enforce a new set of harsh, restrictive COVID ordinances, and the news this week is proving them right.

Joe Biden was noncommittal during the 2020 election any time he was asked about a possible mask mandate, stating simply that he would “follow the science”, in a statement that sought to cast Donald Trump as some sort of anti-science heretic.

Somewhat predictably, Biden issued a “100 Day Mask Challenge” which absolved him from calling it a nationwide, public mandate, but still allowing it to be an excuse for Americans to berate one another.

When it came to travel, however, Biden did sign an executive order proclaiming that anyone traveling domestically in the United States will wear a mask.

This week, that mandate sharpened its fangs.

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security David P. Pekoske announced that a National Emergency Determination had been made to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. According to the announcement, this new determination stems from a previous determination on March 13th, 2020, that the spread of COVID-19 constitutes a national emergency.

The determination grants the TSA certain authorities required to implement an executive order issued by President Biden on January 21, titled the “Executive Order on Promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel.”

According to a statement from the public affairs office of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the TSA will be requiring individuals to wear a mask at TSA screening checkpoints. Masks will also be required throughout the commercial and public transportation system.

The TSA hasn’t always been the most trustworthy industry, of course, having made headlines numerous times in the past for their failure to actually prevent weapons from entering airport terminals, and for the proclivity toward indiscriminate groping.
