READ all the way to the bottom please!
The tyrants keeping Illinois shut down have no basis in the law to continue doing so.
Start with Chris Koos – his original ordinance #5804: http://www.normal.org/DocumentCenter/View/16424/ORD-5824—Emergency-Authorization—032320?bidId=
That ordinance references:
Koos is basing his Executive Powers on the Governor’s Executive Order. What does the law say?
Pritzker’s authority expired 30 DAYS after he issued it . Chris Koos’ proclamation based on whatever authority the governor gave him to enforce emergency powers expired with it.
What does the law say about LOCAL emergency declarations?
Municipal code gives him 6 days: PDF page 10
The Council has never been asked to approve extending Koos’ emergency orders – they are therefore dead too. If Koos brings them before the council he will have to explain how he has powers based on the governor’s executive orders when they too are expired.
We are being run by tyrants who have no regard for the law. The Sheriff and State’s Attorney have not issued statements saying they will not arrest or prosecute violations, they need to. Both Mayor’s need to issue statements that Pritzker has no authority under the law and businesses who can safely open can immediately.
Want to be free?
- No local or Springfield representatives have ever voted on the lockdown. Tyrants are making laws without the approval of your elected representatives
- Pritzker thinks he can close churches for a year or more
- the law says only the Illinois Department of Public Health can shut down anything – with a court order
- If lots of businesses re-open they will not be able to take every business to court
- lawyers are standing by to assist
The salon owner in Dallas who opened her salon against orders now has a GoFundMe account with more than $500,000. People want leaders, Shelley Luther spoke truth to power. Does McLean County have any leaders?
If you are on Facebook, find the Live Video Stan Nord did yesterday from Uptown. It has close to 1400 views so far. Stan is leading, but he needs your support. The Council despises him because he isn’t a bobblehead. Either the tyrants win or the people do. It’s your choice!
A local lady is organizing a walking protest tomorrow:
Please meet me at the corner of Linden and College at 5:30 pm in Normal Illinois for a social distancing walk. #FreeMyPeople
Bring a friend. Share widely.
Show up if you are tired of tyrants!
