Dallas County, Texas Salon Owner Jailed For COVID-19 Noncompliance – Opened Business Now Incarcerated…

Posted on May 5, 2020 by sundance

It doesn’t come as a shock but it is ridiculous in the extreme. A Dallas County Texas salon owner has been sentenced to a week in jail for defying the order to keep her business closed.  “I couldn’t feed my family and my stylists couldn’t feed their families” Ms. Shelly Luther testified.  The court didn’t care.

The stakes are escalating daily as economic desperation takes over and the oppressive hand of the authoritarian government officials refuse to loosen their grip on their new found power over the population.  Confrontation is likely to get much worse quickly.

TEXAS – A Dallas salon owner will spend a week in jail after she was found in contempt of court Tuesday for violating a court order to close her salon during the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to the jail time, Shelley Luther was fined at least $3,500 for continuing to operate her business, Salon à la Mode, in violation of a temporary restraining order issued against the business.

Like other businesses deemed nonessential, Luther’s Far North Dallas salon was forced to close March 22 after Dallas County enacted its stay-at-home order.  She reopened the salon on April 24 despite that order, and tore up a cease-and-desist letter from Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins at a demonstration the following day.

[…] “I couldn’t feed my family and my stylists couldn’t feed their families,” Luther testified.   (read more)

Judge Eric Moyé asked Luther if she would make a statement admitting she was wrong and selfish. Listen here…

The judge told Shelley Luther she
could avoid jail time if she apologized, admitted she was wrong, and agreed to close her hair salon until it was allowed to open.

Unfortunately we predicted this exact outcome when we were discussing how the Blue regions would line up to destroy the financial livelihoods of people living within oppressive control zones. [Previously Here]  There is a growing likelihood things will continue to escalate as people get increasingly desperate and isolated.

This activity is fuel for a full WACO-style confrontation; which, ultimately would serve the interests of the control authoritarians.  This is not a good trend to be seeing.

Also, on the same day this news comes out, we see fully armed SWAT team members with armored vehicles moving in to stop another business and arrest the owners.  Again, this type of activity is going to end with a violent confrontation:JuYeon Kim@JuYeonKimTV

When you see that justice is measured, not by due process, but by compulsion; when you see that in order to invoke your first amendment right to speech; or your sixth amendment right to due process, you must obtain permission from men who rebuke our constitution; when you see that justice is determined by those who leverage, not in law, but in politics; when you see that men get power over individual liberty by graft and by scheme, and our representatives don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you; when you see corruption holding influence, and individual liberty so easily dispatched and nullified; you will know that your freedom too is soon to perish…

The authoritarian government appreciates good citizens who comply with the interests of the state.  Good citizenship is rewarded with access to a safe COVID Compliant Society. A safer society; where the odds will always be in your favor.

A reminder:… During this economic war residents within the Blue occupied territories will be held captive to the political whims of their regional generals.

The economic freedom and liberty zone will encompass the Red region. The center of the country, mid west, southern region (surrounding the Gulf of Mexico) and south eastern Atlantic region. These areas will be open to commerce and economic freedom.

However, the urban dense populations (Blue pockets within Red zones) will push-back against the efforts of the Red generals in an attempt to retain alignment with their Blue team generals. Depending on the strength of the urban forces there may be roadblocks, sabotage, skirmishes and political violence against the freedom & liberty Red team.

If you track the oppression and confrontation you will note it increases in direct proportion to the level of Democrat authoritarian control on a very local level. The higher the spike in the maps below, the greater likelihood your freedom will be removed and you will need to be very careful about any grievance protest.

Red captives within the Blue zones will have to be smart and strategic. Big Blue tech will be assisting the totalitarian Blue generals. Direct confrontation against the Blue forces should be avoided, and it will likely be a better strategy to fight stealthily as insurgents.

Any Red team member of the economic freedom alliance, trapped within a Blue region, is warned to evaluate their connection to their electronic devices. Your cell phones could be used as portable transponders expose your movement and your political views.

As we are seeing, officials within the totalitarian state are not opposed to using full military tactics against U.S. citizens.  This is not new, we have seen this for decades; only this time it is more widespread.  The police firebombed the group MOVE in Philadelphia. Federal officials assassinated members of the Weaver family in Ruby Ridge, Idaho; and everyone is familiar with the WACO Texas massacre.  Those events highlight the potential, only now we are talking about hundreds, perhaps thousands of simultaneous events; again, depending on the level of desperation.

This is going to be one hell of a struggle.  A Spring and Summer conflict looms like we’ve never seen in the history of U.S. politics.  The pressure is building quickly, be careful.

Conduct your affairs accordingly.

It’s not about a virus; it’s about control…

The tall blue spires are the extreme danger zones.Advertisementsblob: THIS AD

    GRACE IN YOUR FACE. Today the #lockdown gestapo burst into our shop while we were there grabbing sanitation supplies for our home. No lights on, signs off. In busts SIX ARMED #LVPD! And now we have lost our license. This means we can’t take care of our fam when this is over. #COVID19 #OverReach.FACTS ARE STUBBORN THINGS.Here are facts that need facing:• The first step in winning a war is in correctly identifying your enemy.• Our enemies are COMMUNISTS, whether THEY call themselves that or not.• Communists infested America decades ago. They gained critical mass in 1972 when they captured the Democrat Party.• Nearly every Democrat in Congress is a hardcore communist.• Communists control every institution in America, including all of the “dinosaur press,” much of the judiciary, a lot of corporate America, nearly all of the film and entertainment industry, all of the teachers unions, most of the secondary school systems and universities, most of the Protestant sects, and all of the Catholic church.• What they don’t have is the Presidency and the Senate, although they infest federal civil service spread across all of the executive departments and too much of the several branches of the U.S. armed services, although the latter is probably still America’s most reliably patriot institution. Many police and sheriff departments have turned to the Dark Side, as have much of the national security and domestic security apparatus.• Still, the lone institution that America can trust with its future (with some quick and intensive housecleaning) is the MILITARY.• Stop looking for AG Barr to ride to the rescue. If he was going to do so, he would have done it by now. Fact is, he is not interested in protecting conservatives by using DOJ to halt the almost infinite cascade of unconstitutional violations by mayors, governors, police, and sheriffs across America. He just isn’t.• Civil war is not in our best interest. Not only would it weaken America, thereby providing our overseas enemies with manifold opportunities to take advantage of our temporary weakeness, but patriot militias would be outgunned against a militarized police force. Yes, we might still be able to take them down eventually. But just as those who thought the Civil War would take mere weeks to wrap up were terribly wrong, we would be terribly wrong in thinking the cops/sheriffs would back down. They wouldn’t. Institutions protect themselves, and so would the police and sheriffs. So don’t count on them coming over to the patriot side.• There are only three solutions to our current misery, and none of them are appealing.Right now we get to pick one. Later on, the choice will be made for us.Here are your choices:(1) ENGAGE IN A LONG TWILIGHT WAR, using the courts and whatever other “legal” methods exist. Recognize that many of the means of legal redress are in the hands of the communists. So, for example, today a California court found that Gov. Newsom had no authority to give illegal aliens taxpayer money, but that “there was a public interest in sending tax money to illegal aliens during the Coronavirus crisis.”
    See what I mean? Even when you get a communist to admit they’re acting illegally, they continue to act illegally.(2) ENGAGE IN A CIVIL WAR. As discussed above, this is a losing proposition even if patriots are victorious in the end, because our enemies overseas will have moved against our allies while we were otherwise occupied.
    We’d win but would awaken in a new and more terrible world.(3) HAVE THE PRESIDENT DECLARE MARTIAL LAW but only in those states that are in a “state of insurrection.”
    A military governor is appointed for each such state for only a temporary period.
    The idea is to not only IMMEDIATELY TERMINATE all state- and local-government-sponsored “lockdown terrorism” against us patriots, but to use this temporary period to correct systemic problems and corruption at the state level.
    This includes in the school systems, by for example cleansing curriculums of bullshit pervert “studies” and restoring the teachings of our forefathers.
    One of the most important tasks of the military governor is to fix the broken voting system by installing safeguards against fraud, like voter ID.
    The most important role of the military governor would be aiding ICE in every way, shape, and form so that when martial law ends, there are NO ILLEGAL ALIENS REMAINING IN THE INSURRECTION STATE.
    It goes without saying that the military governor’s job would include helping the U.S. Marshals Service in capturing and extraditing all communist officials at every level of government in that insurrection state.
    The military’s mission would be similar to that which we rolled out in Japan and Germany at the end of WWII. The goal is the restore the rule of law and of personal liberty while re-establishing institutions that promote good governance and personal responsibility.…CONTINUED IN NEXT POST….Liked by 1 personReply

  5. northwoodswatcher says:May 5, 2020 at 9:56 pm…CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS POST….I hesitate to point out that there is actually a FOURTH OPTION.I call the “Wyatt Earp Vendetta Ride” option.This is the option that Gen. Augusto Pinochet quite rightly employed against the communist Salvador Allende. It’s the death squad option.But recognize that even as we speak, America’s well-ingrained civil order is degenerating much faster than you might imagine..As Sundance alluded to, it’s only going to take a little longer and some antifa in the bushes is going to fire a shot during a tense faceoff between armed patriots and militarized police. Once that gets going you are going to see scenes reminiscent of Northern ireland during “the troubles.” Both sides will take a beating. The possiblities for multiple Waco bloodbaths is something that the communists (including ALL of the sociopathic demonRAT governors) are drooling over, because their dictatorial powers will be cemented by our employment of 2nd Amendment rights.Unfortunately, the folks we will be fighting will be our former close allies, the thin blue line. Which, again, is why the communists are drooling. It will be the good guys against the good guys. And the bad guys will get to pick up the pieces.The solution is to beat the communists to the punch but shutting down the shutdowns.Using the hammer of the military means that the cops and sheriffs will finally stand down.When they see martial law announced, the demonRAT governors will suddenly bleat that they were about to open everything up.Too late. The U.S. Marshals Service will already be knocking at their doors, courtesy of President Donald J. Trump.The demonRAT governors and other assorted communists will soon find themselves at Gitmo undergoing rendition, then trials, then exile of the permanent kind in a country that ain’t kind.Shoot all the holes in it this option that you want.Then recognize that MARTIAL LAW IN THE STATES IN INSURRECTION is the solution.Liked by 3 peopleReply

But first DJT would have to massively purge the upper ranks of our military establishment of those who climbed the ranks strictly through their ‘lip service’ (multiple meanings there) to the Clinton-Bush-Obama juntas. Otherwise, we will have a wide-ranging bloody and destructive civil war…we may succeed because we control the free-market economy, but I hate to see my 9 grandk’s and 2 great-grandk’s live through that.Liked by 1 personReply

      CLOSE, but no cigar. You are right that the,Conmunists have infiltrated almost every aspect of our Society.The CCP simply picked up where the USSR left off, and are very thorough.
      Given that, do you honestly think that,in a “two party” system/country, that they would ONLY infiltrate and corrupt ONE of the two main parties?Wouldn’t that be really,…innefficient, and even, well, STUPID of them?
      Particularly when given the Trillions of our $ that they have stolen over the years, money is literally not a problem.I address your coment that they “what they don’t have is the Presidency and the SENATE”. As you say, IDENTIFYING who the enemy is, is VITAL.If one looks, OBJECTIVELY, at both the actions, and the inactions of Senate Republican leadership, the only REASONABLE conclusion one can come to, to explain their behaviors is that THEY HAVE BEEN CORRUPTED, and are Conmunists, too.That what they SAY they favor, in terms of policy, is NOT what they actually favor, much like Democrats 12-15 years ago, who SAID they favored a wall on the southern border, SAID Abortion should be “available, safe and RARE”, etc.Just look at it logically, if YOU were the Conmunists, WHY would you only infiltrate and corrupt ONE party, when you could do BOTH?And, with Muh Russia being the biggest political scandal in American history, and ALLEGEDLY committed by an outgoing Democrat admin, against an incoming Republican admin, WHY aren’t Republicans in the Senate holding committee hearings every DAY, and screaming from the rooftops?Do you REALLY believe Grahams lame excuse, “muh investigation” is why he is not holding hearings in Judiciary committee?Thats ludicrous on its face, and has been used for far too long. During Watergate, the committee worked WITH investigators and prosecutors, and they held hearings AND got convictions.Face it, Mitch McConnell, Graham, Thune, Burr, Cornyn were all IN on the Coup, from day one, and continue to do everything they can to shield the small group from being held accountable, because the Senate Republicans instigated the coup, and are complicit.So no, “WE” don’t “HAVE” the Senate, and “WE” did NOT “Lose” the House, in the 2018 midterms. Cause you can’t “LOSE” something you never had.Ryan, Conmunist handed the House to the Dems, because politically and as a matter of Optics, the Republicans in the House couldn’t initiate Impeachment against a Republican President, so like a wrestling tag-team, Ryan gifted the Speakers gavel to Nancy.Given that the military was ‘re-made’, not just during the Obama years, but during the Bush years as well, I am afraid I don’t have much confidence in the military, nor the martials service.LikeReply

      I would give my life to preserve the sovereignty of our Republic.
      Pain and anguish comes with individual freedom.
      Unless I live in a cave by myself, some parts of my freedom defined, has to have measure. There are more than just me, who have their ideas of being a free man.
      Since our Republic was created, by our Bill of Rights and our Constitution, and the, you know, Declaration, thing, all of these documents went thru a consistent test.
      The simple clarification of our Republic, passes thru virtue and conventional morality.
      This passage is the route we must proceed to stay within the frame work of our system of governing. That particular route isn’t straight, smooth nor easy. Pain, death and sadness are unfortunate detours, to our lives as self reliant individual free people. It is an erudite path, where the reward has to be worth the pain. When I sail into the wind, the rum flows a plenty when I reach my end, If we win this battle for our Republic, for which it stands, never forgiving our purpose, for cheap victory. We will leave a stronger map for our future, and a resolve like no other. This is our country, our vote, for our freedom. If we have the best concept of human civilization, we have to prove it works.

Whether the Judge was reluctant or not, the $3500 fine in addition to the week in jail is a travesty of injustice for a struggling small business owner trying to save her business with “voluntary” customers willing to go her shop. She wasn’t forcing anyone to walk into her Salon.

The bigger picture — THE BIGGER PICTURE — is that ALL OF THESE “OVERREACH” CRIMES have already been occurring in other ways, in other forms, since before President Trump became President.As was just pointed out, we currently have the administrative powers conferred but the Presidency to take corrective action.These are not unconnected, unrelated incidents.This is cockroaches coming out of the woodwork wholesale.This is both a plague and a blessing.The “blessing” is that you have your enemy right out in front of your where you can reach out and smite him.Gen. George S. Patton Jr. pointed this out when Hitler massively overreached in attacking in the Ardennes. He related that, words to the effect, ‘they have come out in the open… we don’t have to pry them out from their defense… they’re right there in front of us… all we have to do come around both shoulders and cut them off at the neck.’ In other words, Patton would have bagged the whole lot in one fell swoop, rather than pushing back on a broad front and letting the enemy regroup and dig back in.Eisenhower agreed that is was a blessing, but he still failed to embrace Patton’s neck-cutting solution, and so the long twilight war ground on for another five months.LikeReply

    “When the State tells you it’s safe to go to Home Depot to buy a sponge but dangerous to go and buy a flower, it’s not about your health.When the State shuts down millions of private businesses but doesn’t lay off a single government employee, it’s not about your health.When the State bans dentists because its unsafe, but deems an abortion visit is safe, it’s not about your health.When the State prevents you from buying cucumber seeds because it’s dangerous, but allows personal lottery ticket sales, it’s not about your health.When the State tells you it’s dangerous to go golf alone, fish alone or be in a motor boat alone, but the Governor can get his stage make-up done, and hair done for 5 TV appearances a week, it’s not about your health.When the state puts you IN a jail cell for walking in a park with your child because it’s too dangerous but lets criminals OUT of jail cells for their health- It’s not about YOUR health!When the state tells you it’s too dangerous to get treated by a doctor for chiropractic or physical therapy treatments yet deems a liquor store essential- It’s not about your health!When the State lets you go to the grocery store or hardware store but is demanding mail-in voting, ITS NOT ABOUT YOUR HEALTH.WAKE UP PEOPLE — If you think this is all about your health you’re mistaken! Please open your eyes! Stop being lead like blind sheep.”4Liked by 1 personReply

We have the weapons. If the enemy were in our shoes, they would most assuredly use those tools, those weapons, for evil.We are being called upon to use those tools for good — to fix a system that our enemies rotted.One does not repair rot. One clears it away and builds anew.Do we have the gumption — does our President have the vision and steadfastness — to use the tools that Lincoln used to clear away the rot and build anew?LikeReply
