Carter 4 months ago Lots of mouths moving. Nothing happening. We are still locked down. This is intolerable. 3 Author Mark Glennon 4 months ago Reply to V. Carter Right. Only things feds asked for is to keep it in state court. 1 Markebe Buntenbach 4 months ago we need this state open now, I need my Church now more then over, The President said he will not allow mail in ballots, I had with this governor, This is the virus they want to win a election, I was democrat but no more I had with them, There is mental health issues and doctors appoints, Drug abuse and People living along we help now 5 Governor of Alderaan 4 months ago Destroying the economy for political gain is a good intention? 3 Chase Gioberti 4 months ago Reply to Governor of Alderaan Yeah I stopped at “well intentioned”. 4 Wolfnight 4 months ago I should have added the whole DOJ statement of interest is worth a read. Although only a layman, I am struggling to see how even Harry Houdini could get out of this one. The statement references prior cases and seems to make a very clear and well written argument. 2 Wolfnight 4 months ago This is very serious for the Governor. Tilts the equilibrium somewhat as a massive statement of intent from the Feds. I guess this is why we have the checks and balances; three branches of Government (and two have failed in this instance). From my experience Judiciaries will always prevail in the end, sometimes at an unfortunate cost to Joe Public. Not that it is for me to advise Governor Pritzker but in these circumstances I would open Illinois ASAP. Custer’s Last Stand comes to mind. God Bless America. 8 MikeH 4 months ago Reply to Wolfnight At this point, I hope he overplays what’s left of his hand and does something so egregiously stupid that nobody can deny action must be taken. 3 Wolfnight 4 months ago Reply to MikeH Yes Sir I agree, dumbing down seems to be a common course of action so lets see if your hope comes to fruition. I am fantasizing here but believe we could see a Governor Recall on the ballot come November. Now the Feds are involved would the Legislative Branch in Springfield want to vote down any such recall petition should enough signatures be obtained? 5 debtsor 4 months ago Reply to Wolfnight “I am fantasizing here but believe we could see a Governor Recall on the ballot come November.” We live in a little bubble here. Most of the state does not feel as we do. They feel JB is keeping the state safe. Even an uninformed family member of mine told me yesterday that JB seemed like he was doing a good job but he doesn’t follow politics. And this is a guy who leans right but never votes. That’s just one example. On the other end is Oswego Willy who supplicates to The Fat Anointed One. We with our visceral… Read more » 2 Wolfnight 4 months ago Reply to debtsor Please read all his Twitter and Facebook pages, look at some key websites and their comments (Edgar County Watchdogs for example). Do some DD. State people are very unhappy, recall Governor Pritzker signs have appeared in my City, which leans Democrat. A wise man once told me to never fight the Fed. Now they have stepped in, watch Springfield step back (why have they not yet legislated on the Governor’s Emergency Rule for example). It really will become Custer’s Last Stand, then watch all the Governor’s support fall away. Have a great memorial weekend. 1 debtsor 4 months ago Reply to Wolfnight I wish you were right but facebook and twitter comments are never representative of the real world. They’re just representative of the most vocal naysayers and carnival barkers from the cheapseats, using JBELUGA’s own words. 0 Author Mark Glennon 4 months ago The cavalry has arrived. 3 UnclePugsly 4 months ago Hope everyone is enjoying living by the whims of the bloviating, odious, partisan hack elected Gov. 3 Bill 4 months ago It is past the point of civil suits. Indictments are what are now needed. The Reds in the Democratic Party are trying their damnedest to destroy the U.S. economy every way that they can and if not checked in the very near future, they will succeed. Illinois, California, Michigan and other areas of the country dominated by the Democratic Party have literally jailed everyone within their respective boundaries and the courts (federal and local) refuse to intervene. This is the true crisis of the day. 12 Wirepoints Original Stories “Este estado es el más corrupto del país.
