In 2012 the city of Seattle banned the use of single use plastic bags. The move was met with great applause by environmentalist and social justice campaigners.
Since then California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, New York, Oregon and Vermont followed suit, along with hundreds of cities and towns across America.
Recently the Mayor of New York City and failed Democrat candidate for President Bill de Blaiso said, “Big Oil has been pushing single use plastics for too long – and it stops here. They litter our beaches and parks, jam our recycling machines, and contribute to climate change.”
All was well on the march to the utopia of a national banning on all single use plastic bags until recently when the Wuhan Virus struck the shores of America.
According to the most recent updates there are over six hundred and forty positive cases in Washington State with the death toll rising to forty people and six hundred and thirty cases in New York State, with two hundred and seventy of them in New York City. In total forty seven States now have positive cases.
Researchers are now showing that those tote and reusable bags that were imposed on tens of millions of Americans from coast to coast could in fact spread the virus as well as influenza.
On Sunday morning the researchers were joined in their alarm by Nick Isgro, the two-term mayor of Waterville, Maine a city of seventeen thousand people located in the central part of the Pine Tree State.
Mayor Isgro posted on his Facebook page “Tomorrow at our first COVID-19 Task Force meeting I plan to ask that we go to the City Council and ask them to not only temporarily suspend the ordinance passed last year banning the use of plastic bags, but also encourage all retailers to, until the COVID-19 outbreak passes, enforce a ban on bags brought from home.”
Big League Politics reached out to Mayor Isgro and he gave us the following statement:
“I’m asking for the ban because we know that bags from home are often full of contaminants and disease. We also know that right now our grocery stores have higher than normal customer counts, while at the same time running out of the very supplies we’d be asking people to clean their bags with. For the safety of the community, including both customers and store employees who are already under tremendous stress, it seems like a simple and common sense request to add to the mix of other safety precautions we are asking people to take.”
When asked about how his community is responding to his request Mayor Isgro remarked, “So far outside of one of two Facebook comments I’ve seen no negative feedback, only common sense support. I think most people realize this is not a time for politics.”
The mayor expresses hope that other communities will follow as well as store chains themselves.
Giuliani And Ellis Allege Considerable Voter Fraud in Arizona
Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, legal counsel for President Donald J. Trump, along side of campaign witnesses and election observers, appeared in front of members of the state legislature of Arizona today alleging that a sizable amount of voter fraud occurred in the state while also pushing for Republican majority state House and Senate to hold a vote on the certification of the election.
Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, opened his remarks by saying that socialist-leaning politicians and officials have gradually eroded the personal liberties of Americans, noting that the allegedly fraudulent election process on November 3rd is an extension of that.
“We have been warned for twenty years that going to major mail-in ballots … will be fraught with tremendous fraud,” he continued, adding, “We were warned by former President Jimmy Carter.”
Citing the U.S. Constitution, Mr. Giuliani said, “You, the legislature of Arizona, have the plenary power to regulate the selection of electors in a presidential election,” he went on to argue that the Supreme Court has ruled that state Houses and Senates can reclaim the power to name electors.
“Your political career is worth losing to save the right to vote in America,” Giuliani told the GOP senators. “At times in our history, men and women stepped forward to defend Americans’ rights and liberties,” he remarked.
Jenna Ellis, another one of President Trump’s lawyers, said the Trump team isn’t asking the legislature to overturn the results of the election, but to rather, not certify allegedly fraudulent results.
One witness that was called by the Trump legal team was retired Col. Phil Waldron who asserted that the United States is a victim of “information warfare” due to the lack of security around voting machines in the State of Arizona. The machines “can be hacked to manipulate votes,” Waldron commented to the members of the Arizona legislature.
Another witness for the Trump Team was a provisional ballot clerk. She testified that the state directed her to allow people to vote who were not registered to vote in Arizona.
The Trump legal team is aiming to hold similar hearings in Michigan as well as other battleground states.
