(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – It would appear as though Governors Newsom (CA), Cuomo (NY), and Wolf (PA) are in some kind of competition to see who can be the most tyrannical. Over the course of the last week or so these men have been doing everything in their power to make sure residents in their respective states know who’s boss.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner these state overlords have been cracking down and issuing mandate after mandate, commanding residents to stay home and alone over the holiday.
First, Governor Cuomo decreed that New York residents were not permitted to have indoor gatherings of more than 10 people, even at their own private residences. Not to be outdone, Governor Newsom issued similar restrictions and added a 10 pm curfew.
The winner of this deranged battle, however, is without a doubt Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf. Residents in the Keystone State have been ordered to wear facemasks literally at all times, even if social distancing, and they’re being told not to get together for the holidays.
Perhaps the most absurd lockdown restriction yet, however, came Monday as Wolf announced his latest decree to hurt bars and restaurants on the biggest drinking night of the year. Wolf has ordered that bars and restaurants stop the on-site sale of alcohol at 5 pm Wednesday evening. The ban is effective until 8 am Thursday morning.
If you didn’t think it was about control before, you certainly can’t have any doubt now.
Pennsylvanians’ rights are being utterly and completely trampled on by this power-hungry tyrant. Local bars and restaurants are again being punished despite there being no scientific evidence or data to suggest the restrictions on this industry are justified.
What makes matters even worse is that Wolf is pretending as though everything is just out of his hands. The Democrats love to blame President Trump for the 250,000+ deaths from COVID but they are sure not interested in taking any kind of responsibility for their tyrannical restrictions and rules when they hurt their residents more than the virus does.
“The thing that we can’t do is ignore reality and say ‘yeah you folks, for no fault of your own, have been hit hardest by this virus.’ But the virus is what’s doing this. It’s not me. It’s not the administration. It’s not the government,” the Wolf said. Can you believe the audacity?
Today I’m announcing efforts to slow the spread of #COVID19 as cases reach critical levels.
They include a recommitment to school safety, protections for businesses and employees, reduced gatherings, enforcement for mask wearing, and an advisory encouraging PA'ians to stay home. pic.twitter.com/NbV8w9Xqq2

Like Cuomo, Wolf is also telling Pennsylvanians not to have people over for the holidays and Wolf’s transgender health secretary Dr. Rachel Levine threatened residents saying law enforcement and state agencies were going to be “stepping up enforcement efforts” of the administration’s mandates.
He said that new and existing orders “will be enforced” and also stated that law enforcement could start “issuing citations and fines and possible regulatory actions for repeat offenders.”
Wolf echoed Levine’s sentiments and issued his own threat saying, “For those who refuse to do their part to protect their neighbors and communities and refuse to accept that their actions have consequences that cause pain and suffering for others, we will be stepping up enforcement of all of the public health orders Dr. Levine and I have put in place.”
Should you get caught without a facemask and have visitors to your home, you could be considered a “repeat offender.” Better watch out, Pennsylvanians, Wolf’s sending out the gestapo.
The irony is that prior to his threatening residents with increased enforcement of his absurd mandates, he said that it is the duty of all Pennsylvanians to “preserve the life we all love in this commonwealth.” What is there to love in Pennsylvania right now? I doubt very much residents agree that there is much to love about life in PA now.
Wolf and Levine have exercised tyrannical control over the state since the onset of the pandemic in March and things have only gone from bad to worse as the duo continue to crush small businesses and suck the life right out of Pennsylvanians.
