It's Time to Pay Attention: Grocery Stores Now Being Closed Under New Lockdown Measures (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

by N.Morgan

According to all reports cases of CONVID are spiking again. Cases are exploding and hospitalizations are on the rise. The recent spike has governments scrambling to contain the virus.

It appears that everything they do, however, has the same outcome: the people get poorer, the corporations get richer, and the virus continues to spread.

A recent move by the governor of New Mexico has citizens in shock as it is one no state has implemented. Because humans need to eat, one industry that has remained largely open during the entire course of the pandemic is the grocery industry.

Although they have implemented capacity limits inside stores, grocery stores, even mom and pops, have remained open. But that is no longer the case in New Mexico. If enough employees of a grocery store test positive for COVID-19, that store must now close.

Under Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s public health order, businesses with four or more rapid responses in a 14-day period have to shut down for two weeks. According to KOB4, grocery stores in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Roswell, Carlsbad, Farmington, Hobbs, and Las Cruces, have been closed.

The governor is telling citizens not to worry though and that these closures won’t affect their access to the thing that sustains life.

The governor’s office issued a statement to KOB4 News TV, saying, “There is no community in the state of New Mexico where COVID-19 closures have closed off all food and water or medicine options for any community or group of people.

Every single community where the virus is forcing closures has alternate stores, alternate resources. Moreover, stores are only ordered closed for the protection of public safety when the store’s staff members have an abundance of COVID-19 infections among them – surely you and everyone in New Mexico can agree that not one of us would like to be shopping among staff that are contagious.”

But John Block at Pinon Post says the governor’s office claims are “untrue and easily disprovable.” He posted photos of New Mexicans waiting in long lines outside of grocery stores with dates and time stamps. The photos were taken between Nov. 13 and Nov. 23.

“Upon the news that limits of 75 people inside each store, retailers pre-emptively began limiting capacities to begin compliance with the mandate,” Block said.

Nothing stops the spread of the virus quite like hundreds of people congregating outside of grocery stores.

What’s more, the governor’s office apparently didn’t think of the unintended consequences of closing grocery stores in some areas while opening them in others. People are now traveling across multiple counties and even out of state to get food — which is literally causing the virus to spread further.

One man told KOB 4 he and his wife tested positive for COVID-19 and had to go shopping in-person because they could not get their groceries delivered or curbside because of a lack of options — all thanks to the governor’s order.

But fret not silly peasant, the government has everything under control. Oh wait, actually they don’t have anything under control and it has been this way since day one.

If you think that the government — whose coronavirus ‘task force’ consisted of more lobbyists than it did public health experts — has your interests in mind, think again. From the start, the feds have seemingly done everything in their power to make things worse. From selling all of our PPE to China to sending out faulty tests to completely underestimating community transmission, the largest multi-trillion-dollar bureaucracy the world has ever seen has completely dropped the ball in regard to the coronavirus.

As a result of utter incompetence and outright insidious backdoor deals, the United States’s response to COVID-19 has been a massive dumpster fire. The only tool left in the toolbox appears to be taking away what little freedom Americans have left.

It is easy to say “close all the non-essential businesses to prevent the spread,” when you are a governor or bureaucrat who continues to receive a taxpayer-funded check. It is easy to sic cops — who are also on the taxpayers’ dime — on businesses who refuse those orders so their families don’t starve. And, it is easy to blame the public’s disobedience when those orders, mandates, and dictates fail to stop the virus from spreading.

You cannot simply close everything down and expect the American public to live off of a one-time $1,200 check. It is no wonder there is massive resistance and unrest.

The orders are so arbitrary and ridiculous in nature that even the tyrant governors who issue them have been caught breaking them. In New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo has been seen on video and photographs disobeying his own orders — which have gotten average citizens beaten and arrested. He’s even been seen hugging people while maskless. 

In California, Gov. Gavin Newson was caught and exposed flouting his own ridiculous strictures on eating in restaurants — not putting his mask back on between bites (yes, he really mandated this) — while breaking the size limit on gatherings. When he was caught dining at one of the world’s most expensive restaurants, he lied to the public and said the table was outside. But photos quickly surfaced, outing his lies.

Louisiana Gov. Jon Bel Edwards — while forcing bars to shudder across the state — was caught on video breaking the gathering size limit while simultaneously hiring a private bar company for a political fundraiser.

Even Gov. Grisham in New Mexico — who is now forcing grocery stores to close — has been caught breaking her own rules. During her mandated closure of non-essential businesses, she had a store open up so she could buy jewelry. 

This list goes on and on and on.

The hypocritical response by the government is not at all surprising as this is what government does — do as I say, not as I do. With political leaders flaunting their above the law states, it should come as no surprise that there is massive resistance to their mandates. With the current political climate, it should also come as no surprise that the virus has been dangerously politicized.

The arguing on the left and the right has successfully whipped the country into a fit of insanity with many folks thinking it is a hoax, ignoring basic safety precautions, and others being so scared of it that they kill themselves, die in their home refusing to the go to the doctor for a treatable illness, or advocate violence against their fellow citizens for refusing to obey any of the many arbitrary dictates.

As a result, Americans are more divided now than ever and we are no closer to getting back to normal than we were at the beginning of this monstrosity. In the meantime, as kids in the land of the free sink into deep depressions, while being forced to stay at home, kids in China, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea are going to concerts.

It seems that the downfall of the American empire may have begun, and the catalyst for it was a microscopic nucleic acid molecule in a protein coat.

      The tests are flawed and inaccurate and corona virus CASES ARE NOT COVID CASES YET . We are being played like little children and now people serving the public are forced to be ‘tested’ that will lead to stores closing down with flawed cases. The aim is to control us with food so stores must come with a trick to arrange sales via cell phone and they just pick up their bag on the pavement identifying themselves with their cell phone looking through a solid window. (of course they pay via the cell phone also. So they don’t ‘open’ their doors.

      grisham is simply not very bright and very much a sadist as are ALL members of the Nazi style pedophile death cult members; USA.

      The damn masks are/will cause bacterial infections which WILL/ARE picked up as the “cv” slither fraud which deems that as SUPREME crimes against humanity!!!

      NM is the 5th largest state and the poorest of all fifty states.

      Like I said; the NSPDC-USA members are quite stupid and quite the sadists.

      Perhaps, if they do not repent and turn themselves around, they most definitely will find themselves recipients of their own savage and gruesome “dictates”.

        STOP taking the criminally insane con man/women’s tainted and made to NAIL you tests.

      You know this is NOT constitutional? The governor has no right to her claims and the police farce or ANYBODY that enfarces them. If they do, tell them they will arrested, tried for treason, and HANGED by the people or the 2nd Amendment Militia.

      Oh, wait, you don’t have a 2nd Amendment Militia. Handy for times like this and would actually PREVENT this from happening in the first place since no Demoncrap would try and no 2nd Amendment militia would likely let them.

      Oh drats? No, oh doughnuts! :lol:
