    Join us for a live (online) event: Constitutional Rights in the Age of Government Overreach (UPDATED DATE/TIME)

    It’s a brave new world and a new experience for us, but we’re excited to keep the ball rolling, even if the modern world is shut down.

    NOTE: Event originally planned for Thursday night April 23, but has been moved to Sunday Night, April 26. at 8:30 p.m.

    We’d hoped to have have our next and third speaking tour and a handful of Reader Receptions in Florida this past March. But, like the rest of the world, our plans were foiled by a Chinese lab experiment gone wrong (or right).

    In person events are out of the question for the foreseeable future, depending on the fascist level of state governance, so in the mean time, we’ll be joining the droves of online conference goers and will host our first ever online webinar Sunday, April 26th at 8:30 PM ET (was originally scheduled for Thursday the 23rd).

    It’s a brave new world and a new experience for us, but we’re excited to keep the ball rolling, even if the modern world is shut down.

    Petty tyrants are flexing their tiny muscles to put the squeeze on individual liberty in the midst of a global crisis (because that’s what cowards do) and all in the name of safety. But what about our rights? How do they square with safety issues in the midst of a global pandemic?

    I’ll be hosting Professor Jacobson’s discussion of Constitutional Rights in the Age of Government Overreach.

    More information is forthcoming, so be sure you have subscribed to Morning Insurrection for all the details on our upcoming live event.

    Professor Jacobson will be taking some (not all, because time is finite) questions from our wonderful readers. If you have questions pertaining to government overreach during the COVID-19 pandemic, leave them in the comment section beneath (ON THIS POST). We’ll do our best to get to as many questions as possible. It’s not quite the same as being able to meet you in person and bump elbows, but we’re excited nonetheless.

    Thanks for being part of the Legal Insurrection family. We look forward to taking your questions!

    Questions:

    1. While it is better for each state to decide when and how to reopen their state, do you think that the President has the authority to either close or open up the country? Does declaring a National Health Emergency and declaring all 50 states to be in a state of emergency create an authority?

    2. Isn’t it the decision of the president to decide when to lift the various international travel bans as well as to decide what type of testing or proof of health would be required in order to enter the country?

    After all, the Customs Department is part of the Federal Government. So Cuomo may be able to keep the international airports in NY stay open, he does not have any authority to allow a foreigner into the country, correct?

    A woman arrested in NJ for planning a protest.. This is a perfect example of the state abrogating constitutional rights..

    Here is a link.. https://www.nj.gov/oag/newsreleases20/pr20200417b.html

    NJ is out of control.
