Coronavirus News (shits getting real)...DOJ seeks new emergency powers amid coronavirus pandemic

via Politico
The Justice Department has quietly asked Congress for the ability to ask chief judges to detain people indefinitely without trial during emergencies — part of a push for new powers that comes as the coronavirus spreads through the United States.

Documents reviewed by POLITICO detail the department’s requests to lawmakers on a host of topics, including the statute of limitations, asylum and the way court hearings are conducted. POLITICO also reviewed and previously reported on documents seeking the authority to extend deadlines on merger reviews and prosecutions

Ok.  No one knows what contingency plans are in place or what the modeling they're looking at actually shows but from my chair this means that shit is getting real.

California, New York and New Jersey made the call to have everyone remain at home.

I'm giving the Feds a week to get everything in place and for this to hit sometime this weekend (probably notifying everyone Fri and to make it go into effect the following Mon).

After that we're probably looking at a two week lock down with everyone being slammed, stressed out and looking crazy.

Add maybe another week or two for high population centers to stagger thru all the drama (with fly over country being released from the lock down) and America will be back zooming full strength in May.

Based on this scenario April will be hell.  Get ready folks, this thing is about to get interesting.
