LOCKDOWN is a terrifying story of not only the chaotic freefall of American freedoms during the opening stages of the COVID pandemic, but the dangerous growth of government power that continues today.
LOCKDOWN is a warning that the extraordinary powers invoked by left-wing Democrats and others, justified by claims of public health and safety, have begun the unravelling of America’s constitutional order and our most cherished freedoms.
Using COVID-19 as a cover, Democrat leaders and their bureaucratic health advisers seized powers the Constitution never gave them, and ordered citizens to stay off streets and out of public parks, banned them from their workplaces, closed down their schools, and made church attendance a crimes — even as these same leaders and their left-leaning cronies blithely, arrogantly, and outrageously allowed mass protests, kept open abortion clinics and did as they pleased.
Relying on her trademark aggressive reporting style, Cheryl K. Chumley explains how the radical left is using pandemic policies as a template for increasing controls over the lives of citizens as they build a one-party, socialist state in America.
A sequel to her bestselling Socialists Don’t Sleep, in LOCKDOWN, Chumley exposes how hypocritical, elitist, and radical leftists are still using the coronavirus to score political points and steal individual rights – as the original pandemic served as dress rehearsal in the march toward the new fascism.
A Note From the Publisher
Praise for LOCKDOWN: The Socialist Plan to Take Away Your Freedom by Cheryl K. Chumley
“A crucial warning for Americans about the left’s never-ending lust to steal individual liberties—and the power of God to stop it.” — Everett Piper, bestselling Author of Grow Up! and Not a Day Care
“Our personal liberties are so easy to take for granted, but if the growing gang of Socialists have their way, we will regret not having paid attention and assuming such a stupid thing would never happen in America. Cheryl Chumley is a gifted writer and courageously explains what’s at stake. Don’t put off reading this book and regret that you failed to realize the threat we face.” — Gov. Mike Huckabee, New York Times bestselling author and host of Huckabee
"The Pandemic reminded us of how fragile our liberties are. Cheryl Chumley shows us how close we came to losing them for good and what we can do to secure them in time for the next challenge." — Cal Thomas, syndicated columnist and bestselling author
"The Hippocratic Oath states: 'First, do no harm.' When a plague originated in a Chinese Communist Party lab in Wuhan began spreading like a prairie fire across America, President Trump faced a no-win situation — how best to stop it. In LOCKDOWN, Cheryl Chumley gets to the heart of the dilemma that POTUS warned us about on that March day — don't let the cure be worse than the disease. Cheryl Chumley is one of the most important voices in the Trump Movement and LOCKDOWN is a must-read for those 'Deplorables' who want to understand the real threat America faces." — Steve Bannon, host of War Room and former White House chief strategist for President Donald J. Trump
“Any conservative who is familiar with Cheryl Chumley’s work, knows she’s a champion of human liberty. LOCKDOWN reveals how anti-freedom, left-wing forces use events and tragedies like a pandemic to advance their barbarous assault on the human spirt. Everyone who loves this country needs to pay attention to this important book as it dismantles the tricks and tactics used by the radical left to advance their dark agenda. More importantly, Cheryl tells us what we can do to stop it.” — Chris Salcedo, host of Newsmax The Chris Salcedo Show
“LOCKDOWN is a deep dive into the radical Left’s aggressive manipulation and politicization of the COVID-19 pandemic to advance their own toxic agenda and silence the American people. Cheryl Chumley has done it again!” — Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA, and host of The Jody Hice Show
“Despite different views Americans will hold about the pandemic and the vaccine, we can all be united about the value of liberty, and the need to be vigilant in defending it. The Left looks for any and every opportunity to destroy it. Cheryl Chumley’s book LOCKDOWN will help you to be even more alert to this danger!” — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life
“Cheryl has emerged as one of the most important writers in America today for one of the most important newspapers today. She made tremendous impact with her landmark book Socialists Don’t Sleep. Now she extends her work in the brilliant LOCKDOWN detailing how precisely collectivists like Joe Biden are, at this moment, doing their utmost to destroy freedom in America. Must read. Essential.” — Craig Shirley, Reagan Biographer and Presidential Historian
“Cheryl Chumley takes you through a no-holes-barred expose of how America was transformed seemingly overnight by one of the most liberty robbing policies ever instituted, the COVID lockdowns. Instead of taking ‘two weeks’ to flatten the virus curve, lockdowns persisted for more than a year and flattened America's constitution, freedoms, common sense, science, and public health. LOCKDOWN walks the reader through the bastardization of science and how unelected public health bureaucrats became dictators virtually overnight in our once free nation. Find out what is behind the tyranny of government stay-at-home orders, curfews, bans on attending weddings, funerals and backyard barbeques. Chumley reveals how global institutions are poised to make the "two-week" flattening of your freedom into a permanent Great Reset using climate change to bring George Orwell's 1984 dystopian vision into reality." — Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot and the author of the bestselling Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal is Even Worse Than You Think and former senior staff of U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works Committee.
“The political divide in America became the mask divide. Those who believe in big government and phony science clung to masks, lockdowns and Fauci far after the facts were against them. Chumley outlines how it happened.” — Jack Kingston, Conservative Activist and Former U.S. Congressman for Georgia's 1st District
