Global Research Editor’s Note 

The cat is out of the bag. The successive covid lockdowns imposed on humanity, on 8 billion people Worldwide in more than 190 countries, starting on March 11, 2020 is now acknowledged in a historic report by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

The Independent media including Global Research have relentlessly reported upon the Covid-19 Lockdown and the subsequent imposition of the mRNA vaccine from the very outset in January 2020.

Global Research has published several thousand articles on the corona crisis, testimonies and analysis. We have been in contact with the victims in different regions of the World.

From the outset our reports have been the object of persistent smears by the mainstream media as well as censorship.

GR articles have been excluded from the search engines and social media platforms for telling the truth.

Today our thoughts are more than ever with the victims of this criminal undertaking directed Worldwide against humanity.

Supreme Court justice has labeled the avalanche of covid lockdown measures imposed across America as among ‘the greatest intrusions on civil liberties in the peacetime history of this country’.

Justice Neil Gorsuch delivered an excoriating review of the restrictions enforced at both a state and federal level by executive officials.

In a statement written as part of a Supreme Court case about Title 42, Gorsuch said emergency decrees were issued during the pandemic ‘on a breathtaking scale’.

Many businesses were forced to close across as officials tried to stop the spread of covid – but the extreme measures amounted to some of the ‘greatest intrusions on civil liberties’ in US history, a Supreme Court justice has said.

‘Governors and local leaders imposed lockdown orders forcing people to remain in their homes. They shuttered businesses and schools, public and private,’ he wrote.

‘They closed churches even as they allowed casinos and other favored businesses to carry on. They threatened violators not just with civil penalties but with criminal sanctions too.’

The justice, who was nominated to the Supreme Court by Donald Trump in 2017, gave examples of how authorities ‘surveilled church parking lots, recorded license plates, and issued notices warning that attendance at even outdoor services satisfying all state social-distancing and hygiene requirements could amount to criminal conduct’.

He explained how ‘federal executive officials entered the act too’ through vaccine mandates which included threats of dismissal for employees and service members who refused.

‘Along the way, it seems federal officials may have pressured social-media companies to suppress information about pandemic policies with which they disagreed,’ Gorsuch added.

Emergency decree were issued ‘at a furious pace’ while Congress and state legislatures ‘too often fell silent’.

The statement was filed as the Supreme Court dismissed a case brought by Republican states which sought to maintain the Title 42 public health policy which allowed the US to turn away asylum seekers during the pandemic.
