Gorsuch-COVID Orders ‘Greatest Intrusions on Civil Liberties… in the History of this Country’

Trump-appointed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch released a lengthy statement condemning the radical and coercive COVID policies that took the country by storm three years ago, saying that “since March 2020, we may have experienced the greatest intrusions on civil liberties in the peacetime history of this country.”

Gorsuch covered nearly every aspect of the COVID response – from the mandatory school closures to the unprecedented expansion of the government intelligence and surveillance apparatus.

“They surveilled church parking lots, recorded license plates, and issued notices warning that attendance at even outdoor services satisfying all state social-distancing and hygiene requirements could amount to criminal conduct. They divided cities and neighborhoods into color-coded zones, forced individuals to fight for their freedoms in court on emergency timetables, and then changed their color-coded schemes when defeat in court seemed imminent.”

The statement comes just after the Supreme Court dismissed a case involving Title 42 – the now-expired Trump-era policy that laid the legal foundation for the easy and prompt deportation of illegal immigrants.

Gorsuch frequently tried to halt the advances of the radical lockdown measures in several supreme court cases in 2020 but was often overruled by the left-wing justices working with Chief Justice John Roberts.

The Trump appointee has been one of the biggest critics of the COVID response, releasing dissenting statements after several cases in which the left-wing justices and Roberts upheld pandemic “emergency” measures without regard to whether they were constitutional.

While the pandemic raged, civil injustice ran amok across the country. Churches and schools remained closed – which has significantly hurt children’s academic prowess and amplified the decline of Christianity in America – while marijuana dispensaries, fast food restaurants, and gambling spots remained open, which Gorsuch noted.

“They shuttered businesses and schools public and private. They closed churches even as they allowed casinos and other favored businesses to carry on. They threatened violators not just with civil penalties but with criminal sanctions too.”

Gorsuch also took issue with the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate and the first amendment violations that the FBI undertook on social media by suppressing “COVID misinformation.”

“They deployed a public-health agency to regulate landlord-tenant relations nationwide. They used a workplace-safety agency to issue a vaccination mandate for most working Americans. They threatened to fire noncompliant employees, and warned that service members who refused to vaccinate might face dishonorable discharge and confinement. Along the way, it seems federal officials may have pressured social-media companies to suppress information about pandemic policies with which they disagreed.”

The Supreme Court justice ended his statement with an ominous warning, implying that the fear-mongering that gave politicians the mandate to impose illegal “emergency” measures may be used again in the future.

“One lesson might be this: Fear and the desire for safety are powerful forces. They can lead to a clamor for action —almost any action — as long as someone does something to address a perceived threat.”
