Democrat Tries to Hold State Hostage, Judge Steps in And Wipes the Floor With Him

It can happen at any level. An elected official can be slowed or stopped. Democrats might be power hungry and have Trump Derangement Syndrome. But common sense eventually steps back in. Americans will allow life to grind to a halt but only for a short time. If we see the need to shelter-in-place, we’ll do that. You need to justify that need when other facts start coming in. And with Democrats nationwide holding purse strings, push will come to shove.

Clay County Circuit Court Judge Michael McHaney ruled against Democrat Pritzker’s order approving a restraining order to Rep. Darren Bailey. The ruling is applicable only to Bailey but it opens the door for similar legal action nationwide.

“We are certainly going to act in a swift action to have this ruling overturned,” Pritzker said in his daily coronavirus press briefing.

Democrats usually like slippery slopes. Not so in this case.

Bailey, a Republican from Xenia, IL alleges Pritzker overstepped his authority and violated the civil rights of the state’s residents. Pritzker renewed the stay-at-home order to May 30 to try to keep the coronavirus from spreading.

“Enough is enough!” Bailey said in a statement. “I filed this lawsuit on behalf of myself and my constituents who are ready to go back to work and resume a normal life.”

Pritzker really can’t do anything until the lawsuit is resolved.

“Representative Bailey’s decision to go to the courts is an insult to all Illinoisans who have been lost during this COVID-19 crisis. It’s a danger to millions of people who might get ill because of his recklessness,” Pritzker said Monday. “Disasters don’t evaporate on a 30-day timeframe. Legislators took this into account when they wrote this law. We will fight this lawsuit to the furthest means possible. In the interim, we will be issuing new public health directives so we can respond to this public health crisis.”

Walk it back

Pritzker’s latest order relaxes a little It allows for some outdoor activities, surgeries and medical treatments. Retailers can fill online and curbside orders.

“We are in possibly the most difficult parts of this journey,” Pritzker said. “I know how badly we all want our normal lives back. Believe me, if I could make that happen right now, I would, but this is the part when we have to dig in.”

Illinois has had a total of over 45,000 cases and 2,000 deaths from the coronavirus. Bailey wants the intent examined. His authority “calls for an immediate review and reconsideration of legislative intent.”

Illinois state law gives the governor authority to declare a state of emergency for 30 days but says nothing about extending that. Extensions can be granted based on need.

  1. This pompous POS is the one needs his butt keel hauled. Illinois needs and wants to get back to living and the virus isn’t that bad. People of Illinois need to vote this prickster out of office.

    1. Absolutely, speaking from southern Illinois. Chicago needs to be their own state, they dictate how the rest of the state has to live.

  2. The longer he keeps people locked up the worse the rebound will be. Keeping healthy people locked up destroys their immune system so the faster they get them back to work the better. When immune systems are compromised people get sick more and will catch the virus quicker if they are going to catch it. Unfortunately that is what the democrats want, if they can keep you out of circulation longer the more the economy drops its all part of their plan.

  3. This guy is a typical democratic tyrant. I served over 20 years in the miltary and thus far ass tyrsbt will not take my rights away while he and his family do as they please. He works fights. We dont do as he says he dose as we say.

  4. This is the asshole that told everyone they couldn’t go out or they would’ve arrested, and then allows his pig wife to go to Florida so the rich bitch can be on their million dollar ranch! Then when someone brings this up he’s got the nerve to blame the people for attacking his family. Scum like this fat slime should be thrown in jail for 20 years. Let this fat asshole become someone’s bitch. Nuff said!
