Judge Blocks Illinois Governor’s Extension of Stay at Home Order

J.B. Pritzker will appeal.



An Illinois Judge has blocked the governor’s wide-ranging stay at home and state of emergency executive order, claiming that Governor J.B. Pritzker has overstepped his authority in seeking to extend the state’s existing coronavirus emergency order for more than 30 days.

Clay County Circuit Judge Michael McHaney issued a temporary restraining order blocking Pritzker’s extension of his initial April 2nd state of emergency order on Tuesday. State law gives the Illinois governor authority to implement a 30-day state of emergency, but Pritzker was seeking to extend the existing emergency to a period of 37 days, stretching into May.

McHaney ruled as a result of a lawsuit filed by Republican state representative Darren Bailey. Bailey’s lawsuit applies purely to the state of emergency restrictions as they pertain to the Xenia lawmaker himself, but the ruling sets up precedent for a wide variety of Illinois litigants to challenge Pritzker’s emergency order in the court system.

Pritzker is resolving to appeal and overturn McHaney’s ruling as soon as possible, expressing confidence that his extension of the state of emergency will be upheld in statewide courts.

Illinois has incurred a grand total of approximately 46,000 coronavirus cases as of Monday, and 50 people died of the disease in the state the same day. State Republicans are accusing Pritzker of utilizing the pandemic to advance a prison break agenda, having released 1,300 prison inmates since the beginning of the emergency.

Pritzker has a strong chance of reinstating his bonus emergency powers in the Democratic-controlled state judiciary, but the ruling could place additional pressure on the governor to prepare an exit plan for the state.

Michael Moore: White Texans Don’t Deserve COVID-19 Vaccine

This is medical racism.



Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore called for the COVID-19 vaccine to be reserved for Texans who aren’t white in a tweet thread slamming Texas’ decision to rescind its mask mandate, at first stating that Texans didn’t deserve the coronavirus vaccine because of the state’s refusal to implement mask restrictions permanently.

After some Democrats criticized Moore’s embrace of a medical embargo on Texas, the hateful filmmaker clarified his proposal. Moore said that the poor and members of non-white groups should be vaccinated, with most White Texans seemingly banned from receiving the vaccine.

The anti-white racist only reveals his own ignorance. Texas Governor Greg Abbott cited the coronavirus vaccine expressly as a cause to roll back COVID-19 restrictions, with the vaccine more effectively enabling individuals to reintegrate into social society. Mississippi followed the Lone Star State in terminating its mask mandate on Tuesday, and several other red states are moving to finally take statewide mask mandates out of the picture in addition to reopening schools.

Moore’s proposal for racial restriction of President Trump’s COVID-19 vaccine also amounts to a medical crime against humanity, practiced by totalitarian regimes throughout history in times of disease. During the Medieval Black Plague, Jews and other minority groups were at times blamed for the disease, in roughly analogous fashion to Moore’s libelous remarks.

If Moore is so worried about the impacts of Texas’ measured COVID-19 policy on public health, maybe he should take a look in the mirror. Obesity is estimated to be among the most harmful and costly threats to public health in America, with the most overweight at severe risk of incurring a serious case of COVID-19.
