California Governor, Gavin Newsom, Says He Can Declare Martial Law After Putting National Guard On Alert


California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) said Tuesday that the state is prepared for the possibility of declaring martial law in an effort to combat the spread of the Chinese coronavirus, Breitbart reports.

“[W]e have the ability to do martial law … if we feel the necessity,” Newsom said during a press conference on California’s ongoing response to the deadly illness. In what would be an extraordinary measure, martial law is the suspension of ordinary law and the imposition of direct military control of a population. The governor has already placed the California National Guard on alert for humanitarian duties, including food distribution and public safety activities.

This really should not come as a surpise to anyone, with so many people laughing this virus off and doing as they please, the only thing that will slow the number of people breaking the guidelines, will be Martial Law. Now I am not saying I am for it, but I understand why it has a high probability of happening.

According to Fox 5 News, while urging Californians to stay united and promising “we will get back to the life that we have lived,” Newsom also acknowledged much is unknown and so the state is preparing for frightening worst-case scenarios. He put the California National Guard on alert for duties that include humanitarian missions like ensuring proper food distribution and public safety as some grocery stores resorted to rationing to control panic buying.

He said the state is acquiring two vacant hospitals to beef up capacity as it faces the possibility of a surge of hospital patients. California also is negotiating with about 900 hotels to acquire tens of thousands of rooms that could be used for hospital patients and for the homeless, a group particularly susceptible to coronavirus, which is spread by coughs and sneezes.

It would not surprise me in the least to find ourselves in a federal martial law situation and people will be shocked and angry but when people ignore safety and ignore Presidential orders, bad things follow.
