Move it along, folks, nothing to see here:

“The republic is at stake. This is no game for us.
“There’s a group in this state and country willing to throw away our valuable and precious freedoms.

I filed a "right to know" request after learning that a "deal had been struck" for Monroe County to purchase the bank / property from PNC.
Frustrated, I reached out to an attorney for help. This is what they told me:
Should the DOJ Watch Out for State & Local Orders That Infringe on Citizens’ Rights?
“Many policies that would be unthinkable in regular times have become commonplace in recent weeks, and we do not want to unduly interfere with the important efforts of state and local officials to protect the public. But the Constitution is not suspended in times of crisis. We must therefore be vigilant to ensure its protections are preserved, at the same time that the public is protected.”

Update 5/20/20 @ 10:30:
I did some more research on the 2020 Census and it seems the driver in our area is likely part of the "Update Leave" part of the census, where they send drivers to areas without postal service. However, the strange part is our area ALSO received those postcards. Not sure why this happened, it should only be one or the other during this phase of the census. FYI, the actual "Door knocking" part of the census begins on August 11, 2020.
Update 5/19/20 @ 8:40am - Message from neighbor:
Nate: This Census dude actually is a big question mark. I filed a police report on him. He dropped off somebody else's census on my porch. I drove around the neighborhood until I found the house it belonged to, and delivered it. He came back THE NEXT DAY and was attempting to come up my driveway to drop off another packet. I chased him off, but then grew suspicious. He has been wandering around the area for several days now. Since you obtained a picture of his car, I'm turning it over to the police to investigate.
Why are Census workers driving around, against "social distancing" orders, not wearing masks, in a "red county"?
I was surprised, let's say, when this 2020 Census worker pulled into my driveway on Saturday May 16, around 4pm.
Further, we had already completed the census online, on April 2nd! He had no reason to even pull in.
Watching this transpire, I decided to throw my hat in the ring:

To the Supervisors:
By way of this letter, I am hereby expressing my interest in the open auditor position.
Thank you for your consideration.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: There is no single “reason” why farmers are being forced to dump their milk and why stores are largely still limiting the amount that consumers can purchase this week. The situation is complex, and two rumors are confirmed to be untrue. First, there is no health problem or health-related plant closure, nor is there a shortage of gallon jugs, according to Department of Agriculture sources. And no, milk jugs are NOT made in China. Most milk processing plants have their own plastic blow-molds and U.S. companies produce them as well.
Now that a few rumors are out of the way… Here is the industry narrative for plunging farm-level milk prices and reports of farms being forced to dump their milk. It goes something like this: Schools are closed, foodservice demand is stalled and exports are drying up. The first two weeks of so-called “panic buying” at supermarkets settled into a third week into the COVID-19 national emergency finding consumers continuing to ‘buy’ more milk and dairy products, but “not buying enough to overcome” the aforementioned sales losses…
The coronavirus is sending everyone into a frenzy. Some people are going to the store and making panic purchases by the cartload. Ronda Rousey and Travis Browne seem to be doing just fine on Browsey Acres.
The Baddest Woman On The Planet uploaded a video to Instagram showing off their doomsday preppers stash. They’re good on meat, veggies, water, and fruit. It seems like they have quite a set-up going on.
Our coronavirus panic shopping list is:
It’s no secret I’ve been a proud preppier for years- but let’s all learn from this pandemic panic and be a little more self sufficient and prepared in the future. Taking steps to live sustainably takes time but ultimately saves money, permanently eliminates water and power bills, reduces our carbon footprint, and is just plain healthier. We started @browsey_acres with just a compost bin and a few boxes of @soylent, which then became just a small herb garden, then a full garden (admittedly still under construction) then a few chickens, then a few more chickens (and ducks!), then a whole steer, then a solar roof, then a water catchment system. Start small! Just start! Let’s stop panicking and start preparing! Stay safe out there and #StayRowdyMyFriends!
You can check out the video to see Ronda Rousey’s video. She might be set to board herself up at home for a while. It looks like she’s plenty prepared for anything that’s coming.
Not many main-stream news outlets are discussing this, but the COVID-19 / Coronavirus lockdown in putting the US economy in an an unprecedented position: a simultaneous shutdown of both "wall street and main street" across the country. Since the "great recession" of 2009, I believe that the US economy has not properly recovered. Instead, concepts like Quantitative Easing and Zero Percent Interest Rates came into play. These policies sound great when first introduced, but they only debase the currency further and further, eroding people's hard-earned savings and purchasing power.
The history can be traced back to 1933 when they confiscated gold from private citizens. In 1932, Gold was equal to $20 US. In 1933, they changed it to be worth $32. In 1970, when Gold was worth $34 per ounce, President Nixon stopped allowing for gold to be exchanged for Dollars. In 2009 Gold was over $1000 and today is over $1500!
Here are some links, videos, and other resources, to help illustrate my point.
Since Governor Wolf’s virtual press conference on March 16, 2020, there has been a lot of confusion about what, exactly, “nonessential” business are, whether he could shut them down, and speculation on whether he might seek to seize firearms and ammunition.
During the press conference, he declared that “effective at midnight all nonessential stores are to close in Pennsylvania as well as bars and restaurants, except for takeout . . .” He also stated that he “anticipates” that the closure will remain in effect for two weeks but would not commit to it ending after those two weeks.
