Advises Selling Food to Prisons

Original Article

Maine Democrat Gov. Janet Mills reversed her decision last week to allow restaurants in the state’s southern counties to reopen June 1, suggesting to owners they sell already purchased perishable foods to prisons at the government contract rate. Just days before restaurants in Cumberland, York, and Androscoggin Counties were slated to reopen to allow for indoor dining with health and safety measures in place, the governor reversed course, claiming an uptick in COVID-19 cases in the region. “A date for the reopening of dine-in services in these counties is yet to be determined,” the Mills administration said. Mills’ decision to block the restaurants from reopening as the vacation season is underway,

She told them they could reopen-- they hired staff back and bought food, then she reversed her decision. Can you imagine what these owners are dealing with? THIS is worthy of riots.

Maine's tourist season is 5, maybe 6 months long. Hotels and restaurants literally shut down after Halloween. Keeping these businesses shut down will kill them off for good.

There are no words to describe the loathing I have for this moron. Maine still has less than 100 deaths for the whole state and she has everything in the southern part of the state in a hammer lock. I'm supposed to go on my annual fishing trip there in August and I have the feeling this dope will still have the state shut down, especially to vacationers. She is going to destroy the economy of Maine.

I wonder...what's the gov't contract rate for a prison-sized portion of surf and turf? Why is it femule gubernators are the WORST tyrants? Is it insecurity, inferiority complex...subconscious awareness that they were elected only because of their sex?

Someone on a different location called these female, Democrat governors, titty-tyrants. Name fits perfectly. I just hope when this is all over, people remember these leftist thinking, authoritarian-mad, vagina toting, Democrat-run, power-obsessed booby tyrants. Every state. They’re all the same.

Be careful #4, don't let your misogyny show too much. We have three pretty terrible governors right here in the NY, NJ and PA tri-state. In fact, with their nursing home policy, I'd venture to say they are by far the worst. All are male.

She must be in competition with Gov Witchmer In Michigan.. the Michigan Gov royally stepped in excrement the other day- she opened up more per her ‘safe’ standards- based not on science or advice- can’t be because she never reference where she gets her ideas of safe.. Told the women of Michigan to google hair cutting or put a pony tail in- she said salons may open before July 4.. almost 5 months keeping an industry shut.. The liberal Democrat hairstylists I work with used to love the Gov... not so much anymore.

This woman is our governor and a disgrace. Unfortunately the idiots who vote people like her live in Portland and larger towns. Most come from out of state like MA, Ct,NJ,NY etc. There are a handful of conservatives like me, who have tried to beat her but we are outnumbered I’m praying LePage will run again before she ruins the state completely. Above poster is correct that most conservatives live outside of Portland and vote Republican. It’s discouraging to live in such a lovely state and feel we are under a gestapo regime.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany fact-checked CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta this Wednesday after he spewed a blatant lie at her. The lie was the fallacious and already debunked claim that the Trump administration had “gassed and pummeled protesters” prior to President Donald Trump’s “powerful” walk to St. John’s Church earlier this week. To make matters worse, he spewed the lie while referencing deceased civil rights hero and legend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Kayleigh, you mentioned Dr. King. He likely would not have approved of what took place on Monday evening across from the White House as you probably know,” Acosta said.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he has no choice but to move the 2020 Republican National Convention from Charlotte after North Carolina Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper advised the Republican Party that it would need to plan for a “scaled-down” convention to protect the health of its participants. RNC officials are now considering moving the convention to a venue in Nashville, Las Vegas, Orlando, Jacksonville or one of multiple locations in Georgia, according to CNN. Multiple health experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation that it would be foolish for the party to commit to bringing 19,000 dignitaries together in an enclosed arena anywhere in the country,

Congressional candidate in Georgia issued a no-nonsense message to would-be domestic terrorists and backed it with a powerful visual. Republican candidate Marjorie Taylor Green declared she “will never back down” after receiving death threats following the release of her video warning to members of Antifa.

The man arrested by police in Lubbock, Texas, after he brandished a semi-automatic rifle in front of a George Floyd protest posted a threat on Facebook saying he wanted to “off racists and MAGA people,” officials stated. He allegedly shouted, “President Trump must die” and “this is a revolution” as authorities took him into custody. Lubbock police officers arrested 25-year-old Emmanuel Quinones on Saturday after he was captured on video purportedly brandishing a loaded Smith & Wesson .223 semi-automatic rifle in front of protesters, KCBD NBC11 reported. The protesters were standing in support of George Floyd, the black man killed by Minneapolis police in May.

Mail-in votes in a local Baltimore, Maryland, election were discarded and not counted due to a ballot error, officials say. On Tuesday evening, voters went to the polls in Baltimore city elections — including the race in City Council District 1 where incumbent Democrat Zeke Cohen faced a challenge from Democrat Paris Bienert. The race, though, ended in disarray when a ballot error caused mail-in votes to be thrown out and not counted, according to the Baltimore Sun: … the State Board of Elections said Maryland’s mail vendor SeaChange failed to correct an error in the ballot title for the council contest.

The media, having milked “Russia, Russia, Russia” for all it was worth, has moved on. It moved first to the Wuhan virus but, when that failed to destroy Trump, it fanned the flames of riot-happy leftists across America. Perhaps that’s why almost no one in the mainstream media has paid much attention to Rod Rosenstein’s testimony before the Senate. Rod Rosenstein, as you recall, stepped into Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ shoes on the alleged Russia collusion when Sessions, a decent, if malleable soul, allowed the Democrats to bully him into recusing himself. Rosenstein was also the one who wrote the document recommending that Trump fire Comey,

An ugly incident of police brutality has yet again brought the topic of race to the center of public discussion, peddled by the leftist media. Violent riots accompanied by looting, arson, and destruction of property in dozens of American cities were presented my media and leftist politicians as legitimate protests and expression of the black community's pain — because America is racist. Leftist observers call it a "hybrid civil war" instigated by Trump-supporters: "When they say 'Make America Great Again' they mean Make America White Again." "Brown and black people have been protesting for centuries. It's white people who are responsible for what happens next."

Following days of violent riots and looting in cities across the country, Washington, D.C., announced a 7 p.m. curfew on Monday night. About the same time, President Donald Trump addressed the nation from the Rose Garden. Afterward, he walked through Lafayette Park to St. John’s Episcopal Church, which rioters had set on fire the night before. Standing before the church sign, which reads “All are welcome,” President Trump, who previously said he’d be paying his respects to a very special place, held up a Bible.

I'm puzzled. With a hate group like the KKK, it seems that no three Klan members can meet without at least one of them being a FBI informant. So how in Heaven's name does a violent anarchist group like Antifa, which has been around in its present form for over ten years, manage to fly under the radar? Why hasn't Antifa been infiltrated and its organizers exposed? It can't be that hard to do. These people are not like the Mafia or the hardcore communists of the '40s and '50s with their cells and codes. Antifa is composed of pampered punks.

Once you understand the larger objectives, everything becomes a sequence of predictable events. The term “community policing” has been used for several years by groups advocating for radical changes to law enforcement; however, behind the innocuous phrase is really a much more serious agenda. If each community can determine the enforcement of law, then essentially all communities can eliminate the underlying law itself. Remove local enforcement of law and the local community can independently assemble a social structure separate from all other binding contracts that frame a larger societal compact.
