Dem Governors Face Dozens
of Lockdown Lawsuits

Original Article

Posted By: Garnet, 5/8/2020 5:44:53 AM

Abraham Lincoln is frequently credited with the following aphorism: “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” These words may well have been misattributed to the Great Emancipator, but their wisdom is difficult to dispute. Indeed, during the past two months, the nation’s Democratic governors have clearly demonstrated that the temporary possession of emergency powers can unmask the hidden tyrant in even the most unremarkable politician. Virtually all have overreached their legitimate mandates, and few show any inclination to relinquish their newfound authority. This has not only produced widespread protests but has also led to dozens of constitutional lawsuits.

Gov HalfWhitmer of The (Formerly) Great State of Michigan needs to be sued - and is being sued.. She was denied further emergency powers by legislature. Her nonsense phase of what is and isn’t essential is - maddening. Detroit is 52 % if population- why Democrat’s govern for that small geographic area. Hospitals in rural areas won’t survive/ nor will small businesses. But, the former Soros employee doesn’t care/ her way or the highway she can’t fix either.

Yesterday I was reading on Rush's website about a caller wanting to talk about Dr. Judy Mikovits and the Plandemic movie. I am very disappointed in Rush that he doesn't have the 26 minutes to watch it etc. This over reaction by Democrat governors with the virus outbreak makes me wonder about a lot of things and then I see video clips of Dr. Anthony Fauci that make me question things even more. Dr. Anthony Fauci stated on January 11, 2017 that President Trump, no doubt will experience a viral disease outbreak. Rush Limbaugh, how do you explain that? Look up the definition of conspire and you see a lot of that going around lately. DOJ dropping case against Michael Flynn. A lot of conspiring going around; it almost seems like a disease in itself. . .

I certainly hope our Democrat governor faces LOTS and LOTS of lawsuits. As Attorney General he spent four years bringing frivolous lawsuits against our Republican Governor, Matt Bevin. The new Dem governor and former AG, Andy Beshear, already has one lawsuit brought by his new AG, a republican. Interesting, I don't think Andy will be re-elected since Kentucky is a deep red state, and Beshear's whole administration is Republican. The stomping, bellowing teachers hated Matt Bevin so much they launched a nationwide campaign and got lots of NEA and AFT money to defeat him.

It's a shame that governors can't be held personally liable for exceeding their powers and infringing upon the constitutional rights of citizens. #2 I too heard Rush's comments on Dr. Mikovits. He went on to destroy a "strawman" at which point I turned him off.

The governor's powers last only as long as the actual crisis does. These fools are looking for any way they can find to extend this. I would not be surprised if vote by mail and getting to the next flu season so they can shut down again is their goal.

Yes, as some have noted Rush was not his usual well prepared self yesterday. I imagine the treatments have been eating up a lot of his time. But to the issue, isn't it refreshing to see the Dim governors exposed to protestors, a group of people who could be classified as the silent majority?

No more needs to be said about what a totalitarian government would bring. Various marxist governors just put totalitarianism, communism, facism, marxism, and socialism on full display for all to see. IMHO, the pandemic was engineered and planned from the very beginning. The Rothchilds et al were growing very impatient with the lack of progress being made to achieve the new world order.

The Nazi style governess of New Mexico, Grissom, is on the road to totally destroy the state. It can't stand another month before it's a wasteland not fit to give to the illegals. If anyone defies her she sends the state storm troopers and National Guard to end the protest. Grissom did it to the mayor and village of Grants, New Mexico. The sad part about this is we are the bluest of blue states and she probably will get re-elected and if Biden gets the nomination will receive the electoral votes but I still intend to vote for President Trump.

This was posted on the Powerline blog yesterday: not my words. The Bayh–Dole Act, signed into law by Carter in Dec 1980 (after Reagan won election), changed US patent law to allow government funded researchers into vaccines and other medicines to patent their medical inventions, even if the research was funded by the US taxpayer. The idea was to encourage government funded researchers to share in the financial rewards of vaccines/medicines they developed. There may be underlying conflicts of interest at work in the Covid 19 response. It would be good if all conflicts were disclosed (looking at you Dr. Faucci and Bill Gates) before embarking on mass (mandatory?) vaccinations.

If there is one thing this whole scenario should have finally taught us it is that those who said "they can't/won't do that!" were fatally wrong. They will do anything we allow and try to do more. And they will be helped by military and LEOs who are "just following orders." Hence why the 2A is the ultimate target. Citizen or subject, that is the only choice.

What good does it do to sue Crat governors? It is the state taxpayers who ultimately pick up the tab while the politicians eventually walk unscathed. If no criminal activity can be prosecuted resulting in prison time then what is the point? People will just be suing themselves.

The balance of Wayne county (Detroit), Oakland, Macomb, and Washtenaw (Ann Arbor) counties, the most populous counties adjacent to Detroit, make up about 4.2 million, just under half the total state population.

The lawsuit filed by the Legislature is being broadly miscast as an attempt to strip Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of her powers to manage Michigan through the COVID-19 crisis. That's not at all what legislative Republicans are attempting to do in suing the governor. What they're asking for is a restoration of their Constitutional authority to provide oversight of an executive who has unilaterally declared herself the sole and absolute power in Michigan.The lawsuit filed this week in the Court of Claims says just that: "..

Attorney General William Barr’s decision to drop the prosecution of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is an ugly, but necessary element of the cleanup of the Justice Department and FBI in the wake of their failures in the Russian collusion probe. While Flynn had pled guilty to lying to federal investigators, the revelations of FBI shenanigans by people whom the Trump administration has since fired or have resigned justified the extraordinary step of letting Flynn go. Dropping the charges against the former national security adviser, like the firing of James Comey as FBI director and the removal of his circle of aides, is an important step in restoring control

The coronavirus shutdown is over by public demand. There are crowds of sunbathers in the parks of New York City and mobs on the steps of the statehouses. Pedestrian and road traffic are rising and businesses are defying orders by informally reopening. The people are speaking — the people who used to work on a hand-to-mouth economy, the people who cannot afford to stay indoors indefinitely, the people who cannot be bothered to stay in when the sun comes out.

The narrative seemed set: After a brief surge of public support for President Donald Trump in the early days of America's fight against the coronavirus, his approval numbers had settled back into the low 40s. Right? Right. Except that in Gallup's latest two-week tracking poll, Trump's job approval is back to 49% -- matching the highest it's ever been -- while his disapproval is at 47%. That marks a 6-point improvement on Trump's approval number from the last Gallup tracking poll. And that improvement comes exclusively from independents -- 47% of whom now approve of the job Trump is doing, the best he has ever done among that group in Gallup polling.

There is only one reliable metric that reveals how likely you are to die from COVID-19 in a given state, and it isn’t what you’re seeing in the legacy media. The number of new cases and deaths, for example, are staples of news stories about the pandemic. Neither of these factoids, however, tells us very much in the absence of sophisticated epidemiological data that just isn’t yet available. A far more predictive metric is “death rate per million.” Why? Testing is far more consistent for fatal cases. By this measurement, you are probably more likely to die from coronavirus if you live in a blue state rather than a red

The stay-at-home orders issued by most states have created a puzzling disconnect. On the one hand, opinion polls show the orders to be overwhelmingly popular, but on the other hand there have been protests in states like Michigan and Wisconsin objecting to these quarantines. What to make of this? Public opinion polls are not, nor should they ever be, the sine qua non of republican government. Public opinion is influenced by the government at least as often as it influences the government. That is probably the case here. For weeks, public health authorities have been warning the people that these quarantines are necessary and prudent.

Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis famously wrote that an advantage of America’s federal system of government is that a state may “serve as a laboratory; and try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country.” In a less celebrated passage of the same opinion, Justice Brandeis acknowledged that this was a mixed blessing with the potential to produce “arbitrary, capricious, or unreasonable” actions by the states. This is where we find ourselves today. A number of Democratic governors have used the coronavirus pandemic as a pretext to “experiment” with constitutionally protected civil liberties. Their states have, in effect, become laboratories of despotism.

The SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) began accepting new applications this week for an additional $310 billion in forgivable loans to small businesses with new rules and money set aside for certain groups in order to broaden the initiative's reach. But the agency's electronic filing system crashed within minutes of the program reopening, as a week-plus of backlogged applications poured through, raising concerns about how long the second round of funding may last.

Unlike other rumored contenders, she comes right out and says she’d make an excellent running mate. Nor is she shy about saying what she thinks she’d bring to the ticket: campaigning skills among minority communities, a history of public service and “25 years in independent study of foreign policy.” Surely, Biden must be honored that someone so distinguished
