Tucker Carlson guest arrested for running his business

True courage is hard to find these days, but at least one small business owner is demonstrating just that.

Ian Smith, the owner of Atilis Gym in New Jersey, has been repeatedly attacked by the government for reopening his business with social distancing regulations in place.

Smith has kept meticulous records of all the customers who entered the gym – a number in the thousands. According to him, not a single infection was reported. That wasn’t enough for the Health Department.

They started by trying to fine him into oblivion. When that didn’t work, they arrested him and his business partner.

Smith says that he removed the doors to his gym and took up occupancy there, after the health department boarded them up.

He says: “My partner [Frank Trumbetti] and I have had the doors removed since Thursday and we had not left the building since,” Smith said. ” We had two weeks worth of clothing and we [were] prepared to stay inside at all cost but we did agree we would go peacefully if law enforcement came.”

Law enforcement did come – and Smith and Trumbetti went to jail.


What does it say about our society when you can attack a federal courthouse and go scot-free, but if you try to run your business you go to jail?

Ian Smith isn’t scared though.

“I’m not afraid of tyrants. No American should be,” Smith said. “We outnumber them greatly and the only thing that they run off of is fear.

11 We believe that men should appeal to the civil law for redress of all awrongs and grievances, where personal abuse is inflicted or the right of property or character infringed, where such laws exist as will protect the same; but we believe that all men are justified in bdefending themselves, their friends, and property, and the government, from the unlawful assaults and encroachments of all persons in times of exigency, where immediate appeal cannot be made to the laws, and relief afforded.

New Jersey and you? How is that working out for you people in New Jersey? Born and razed New Jersey left in 1984 and never looked back. The political system in New Jersey never changes it’s like a family of Mafia bosses that run the State with a heavy hand. It would be nice if New Jersey try using Republican’s occasionally to make the state a nice place to live.

Same here, born and raised in New York City. Left in 1976 to Florida.
Became an Independent in 1998 and then a Republican and never
looked back. These Democrats need to look and see what the
Democrats are doing for them. Nothing, they are still poor, uneducated,
and living in squalid conditions. The Democratic elite live in large houses
in lovely neighborhoods and all they care about is power and money.

When it became unpopular to be found out as a member of the Communist Party of America, members joined the rank and file of the Democrat Party. Therein lies the reason for godlessness, anti-America, thuggery, lies, name-calling, voter-fraud, and violence coming from the Democrat Party.

That is right, the Democrats only care about themselves, staying in power . They will cheat , lie and do what ever it takes to stay in power. Voters should take them out of power , use your voting power or we are doomed.

Thank God for honest and logical Americans….it is unfortunate that the DNC has not a single honest and logical member, and certainly no group of them. Honesty, logic, decency, THINKING, intelligence, and love of one’s country are what count, and there is precious little of any of those things being practiced by the leftists. But then, what can one expect from a group of stupid and hate filled “people” who are determined to own the USA so that they, the left, will own every penny and every bit of power…….exactly what they are working for. I applaud Mr. Smith for what he has done. Too bad that most people would not have done what he did, and it is HIM that I so admire.

There is an old,old prophecy that says, ” they came for my neighbor and I said nothing, then they came for my friends and I said nothing, then they came for my family and again I said nothing, finally they came for me and there was no one left to say anything.” It’s time for decent people to stand up and bring this to a close by what ever means it takes.

I agree,, it is just sickening how the rats in the left twist, the rhetoric, people are afraid of them and cave and the marxists know it. Its the guide book for them since the Bolshevik revolution, nothing has changed, they just get more brazen, if we dont stop them there will be no one left to defend this great coountry of ours.!

I stand firmly behind him. They are letting criminals roam the streets destroying property and attacking police officers at will with no response. Yet they want to cause good hard- working-people lose the businesses they worked so hard to build. They let violent criminals out of jail early but replace them with honest citizens trying to hold their business together.

It’s time they get serious with these rioters. And yes when they throw bottles and shoot fireworks at police and destroy property they are rioters. They need to start rounding them up and putting them in jail and cutting off any public assistance they might be receiving. Show them their actions won’t be tolerated and they’ll stop this crap. I know we’re in a pandemic and we need to work together to get through this. But if a business is taking the steps to make it safe let them open. They let the rioters gather in groups of thousands with no masks or distancing and they’re destroying our country.

When will these snowflake politicians get some common sense and realize that businesses bringing in money is good. Burning police stations is bad?

If you want destruction, devastation, and lose of life vote Demoncrat because they removed God from their platform in the 2008 DNC convention, that left the door open for Satan to take control of the Democrat Party. Satan came to steal, kill, and destroy. Satan is a LIAR from the beginning and the father of ALL LIES. All the people that spew the garbage that they do and the actions they do are useful idiots of Satan bottom line. Resist = Rebellion = Witchcraft = Demonic.

All of the Democrats in the U.S.A. need to be totally replaced with Conservatives. The Democratic party to me is now in my opinion the American Communist Party! Their intent is to destroy America like Obama wanted to do, and destroy both Christianity and Judaism like our Country was founded on. Their attempt to destroy both the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights is more than obvious.

Mr. Smith,
It is great to see someone who’s trying to get this country’s normal life back. Someone who is not afraid.to stand up for what they believe instead of giving into the tyrants trying to take over and put us all under their rule like they own us. Last time I looked those type people are called communist. Keep up the good fight.

They are fictionalizing Covid 19 deaths. A post mort. blood smear showing a Covid map on a plate and signed by the patients medical doctor or county coroner is needed to VERIFY that the patient died of Covid and not seasonal flu or another age related malady. In language for low info readers, they are cooking the books.

The “Silent Majority” must get out to VOTE on NOVEMBER 3RD, this is going to be the most important election of my 85 years on this planet, if President TRUMP is defeated by the LEFT the country will be in a permanent downward spiral leading to a Muslim being elected to the Oval office in either 2028 or 2032, & with Groper Joe wanting to start teaching Muslin beliefs in our public schools, that’s exactly where we are headed…

Conservatives must stand up on NOVEMBER 3RD, “lock & load” with a VOTE!

The Dems are working their control now [ going against the Constitution, even the laws of God ] and if not stopped will continue. This is where God comes in, we need to ask him to help us and too, help them [ the enemy ] to open their eyes and see what their doing. Satan has been out like a roaring lion attacking us all, whispering evil thought into the ears of those that will listen. He hates us people and wants to see us destroyed [ not just physically, but spiritually ], so we have to call out to God and put on his whole armor.

Peter: Well where is the SC when you need them, OUT TO LUNCH as is shown by the decision regarding church attendance in Nevada. They, because of turncoat Roberts, voted 5 to 4 to sustain sissylack’s edict of no more than 50 people in church at a time, but casinos, the life blood of NV, come on down the water’s fine. Roberts is becoming more of a liberal commycrat by the day.

Everyone of you is correct. we the people need to take back our country.
go to every commission meeting and let your voices heard. it’s time we stop waiting
on someone else to do something. it has to be US! this is it people if we don’t do
something and everything we are done. we will have no one to blame but ourselves.
we need a new party. one who believes the constitution to the latter, and follows it.
we are setting on the each of the cliff and now is the time to pray even if you’ve never
prayed before. We need to stand up for each other and have each others back.
they fight using words, and intimidation. but if we stand up for each other they can’t win
that way. we need to start legal actions on the work places that fire employees for standing for their
belief. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE A VOICE. we are all equal. We need to form groups that will take
on the businesses, schools, and individuals that infringe on our rights.
