Regardless of what the local mayor’s claim, Governor Pritzker’s Executive orders expired 30 days after he wrote them. That was well over a month ago. Since the media allows JB to continue acting like anything he says is valid, that speaks volumes about their ability to be called a “free press”. Our lame elected representatives are also culpable, they are nothing more than doormats for a tyrant.
See this article from Kirk Allen of the Edgar County Watchdogs: https://edgarcountywatchdogs.com/illinois-governors-emergency-powers-are-limited-to-30-days-according-to-attorney-general-opinions-bureau
Kirk was given a 2001 opinion from the Illinois Attorney General’s office verifying emergency orders only last 30 days and they can not be renewed.
See that document here, Kirk highlighted the important sections: https://edgarcountywatchdogs.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/I-01-028.pdf
There is overwhelming evidence that Pritzker has no authority to keep Illinois shut down. Our elected leaders either don’t know or don’t want to know the dictator has been term limited. Somebody should ask Tari Renner and Chris Koos why they keep pretending JB does, the media won’t. Any executive orders by Renner and Koos expired along with Pritzker’s.
If you missed the local lawyers round-table yesterday on Cities 92.9, listen to it here: https://www.cities929.com/legally-the-state-of-illinois-cant-keep-your-business-closed
These lawyers know only the Health Department can shut down a business. They want to assist local businesses re-open legally. It’s past time to demand government quits violating the law and your rights.
