President Trump, moving with haste to slow the spread of the coronavirus, is preparing a plan to mobilize the National Guard to help enforce a two-week quarantine of the public if his tough-love efforts so far fail. The unprecedented action would require everyone to “stay at home,” according to a source knowledgeable of the evolving plan. The effort, which is still being mulled and wouldn’t be announced until early next week if needed, would urge that all businesses, except grocery stores and pharmacies, be closed.

Somehow, I knew this was coming.

If he closes the gas stations, he won't have to close the drugstores and grocery stores, since there will be no deliveries after a couple of days.

Democrats will be very happy with the financial impact this will have. Look for them to begin more stock holdings selloffs and profit-taking ahead of the announcement. Meanwhile, I just got laid off one of my jobs, so no paychecks on Friday from them anymore for the near future.

This is the only guy reporting this. He wrote it a few days ago. Trump addressed this yesterday and said he didn't see the need, at least until Fauci talks him into it.

Many people are most of the way there already. Really, how far is our government going to take this? If two weeks don't work, will we do four weeks next? By now, people know what safety measures are needed to protect against corona virus. Let people decide how far they want to go. Worried about catching the bug? Stay home 99% of the time. At some point we have to get back to business as usual, and open back up as a nation. We have to move on. There have been 276 deaths (so far) in a nation of 328 million people. This might sound callous, but that's a small number. Get over the panic that our media and government have created.

The press floated this earlier this week and last week also. The President said very clearly in yesterdays news conference that this wasn't in the plans. These articles serve no purpose other than cause more panic buying and scare the public.

BS. The National Guard can’t enforce anything. They have no police powers. None. A guard member can not order you to do anything.

Let the states decide this. In all of KS we have 35 cases, 1 death. Almost all is in our densest county, where I live, in the extreme east. The odds of this benefiting those of use out here in "fly over country" are quite limited. NY has over 4000 cases, four times the second place state, and ten times the fourth place state. This should not be "one size fits all".

Aren't we already a week into a quarantine? How much more of a shut down in needed? Nothing is open. If it is open, the number of people allowed in is restricted. At some point somebody with some common sense has to step in and say enough is enough.

Millions of average working people depend on coin operated laundromats to clean their clothes. Thousands of long-haul truck drivers count on gas stations with their inevitable convenience stores to be open as they carry produce, meat and dairy from farms to warehouses. People who experience car problems on the road need a repair shop. Home owners and renters will still need a plumber when the toilet stops up, or a pipe is broken. Emergency home repairs depend on hardware stores. Thousands of residences undergoing roof replacement may not be able to make do with buckets land plastic sheets in the next storm. Cities will need the national guard to protect their commercial districts from opportunistic looting. Police will need to incarcerate criminals, and jails will need to house them. People will still need to keep their doctor and dental appointments or invite other medical issues. All industries will need to pay their bills; the banks cannot prop up a defaulting economy. The list is endless, but you get the point. Our national economy is a defense against would-be invaders. We cannot board up America and expect it will not become a tempting time to terrorize, attack, invade, or unleash yet another virus. We must stop madness before it becomes too late.

All the consequences of government entitlements and reliance diminished over half of the population's ability to be resourceful in protecting themselves. And now the government has no choice but to implement a draconian Socialist method to rule and manage the country. Let this be a learning opportunity for all AMERICANS in what SOCIALISM looks like. Pray and hope America will survive this and return to the nation of Republic again.

President Trump said today that he is not for a national quarantine and that he was going to leave that matter to the governors to handle in their individual States. This morning Vice-President Pence's Chief of Staff was on TV and said such a national quarantine plan has never been discussed. It would be crazy for Trump to do that, as the Governors know what is best under the circumstances present in their State. It view of the above, it looks like just more fake news.

The owner of a 7-Eleven in New Jersey looking to make a few bucks on the coronavirus outbreak sold a homemade sanitizing spray that burned four children, authorities said. Manisha Bharade, 47, was issued a summons on charges of endangering the welfare of children and deceptive business practices for mixing foaming sanitizer not intended for resale with water and packaging the mixture in bottles sold in her River Vale store, state and local authorities announced Tuesday. “Let me be perfectly clear: If you try to take advantage of our residents during a public health emergency, we will hold you accountable,” New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said.

St. Paul — Police arrested a woman on Monday, March 9, after she allegedly dragged her 11-year-old son from his bunkbed and threw him off the balcony of their fourth-floor St. Paul apartment, leaving him seriously injured. Investigators interviewed the 33-year-old mother on Monday, and “she admitted to doing it, but she did not tell them why,” said Steve Linders, a St. Paul police spokesman. The investigation remains underway. A person in an apartment building in the St. Anthony Park neighborhood called 911 about 8:40 a.m. and reported an attempted suicide.

Joe Biden reached a new and heady milestone when he shellacked Bernie Sanders in Florida, Illinois and Arizona to become the de facto Democratic nominee for president. But there was no soaring speech to acknowledge the moment. He never took the stage amid a sea of Biden signs or before an adoring crowd on national television. Biden was instead stuck in a makeshift studio in his Delaware home, webcasting his remarks with a low-quality personal computer camera against a straight-out-of-YouTube black backdrop and two American flags. He warned about the coronavirus contagion. He offered an olive branch to Bernie Sanders. Then, despite two consecutive weeks of smashing victories,
