    Macon county and Decatur, claim they have to issue those draconian orders because of the Governor’s mandates. They hide behind it

    You will not find a constitutional authority for the governor to unilaterally mandate stay at home orders and closures of so-called non-essential businesses, including churches because of an alleged emergency. Neither does the Governor have the constitutionally granted authority to bankrupt small business owners. Go ahead and check our Illinois Constitution for yourself, that power does not exist! What about the governor’s executive orders you ask, doesn’t that give him that authority? The governor may not, by means of executive orders, exercise powers not granted to him by the Illinois State Constitution or by lawful acts of the Illinois state legislature. Let me explain; the granting of the executive power to the Governor is not a blank check giving him power to do whatever he wants, he is not a King!

    Thank you, ECWd.

    I’ve a bone to pick from the interview.

    The Illinois judiciary’s lack for answer on the 30 day question indicates as slower moving court system than what operates in other states, irrespective of [their] general assemblies, I believe. I would very much like to make this covid-19 phenomenon analogous to a healthy sloth swimming out a flood, but the ominous disposition of an alligator is setting in as time wears on. That, and Judge Judy once snarked about how they do things differently in Illinois. Ha!

    Anyway, among states that have and have not answered this 30 day question, what is the per capita variance on the number of officials and compliments which comprise their state courts? I suspect the variance to be significant.

    I remember the context of Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker’s presser on an interrelated question: “It’s not political.”

      I have the misfortune of once having to submit a formal complaint; and I understood the JIB’s complaint process before doing so.

      On a follow-up call to check on status some eight months later, a representative indicated my complaint had been closed (some undisclosed time prior), and that a close-out letter would be forthcoming in a matter of weeks. Four months later, I contacted a state representative for help then received a close-out letter several days later.

      The JIB complaint process does not provide for delay of a status letter!

      The four months that lapsed from when I was informed the complaint was closed until the complaint process was completed represents a significant waste on others time. So really, the authority comprised to assure a certain quality of justice in Illinois state courts is unadhered to their own process and the input actor.

      Rest assured?

    Hey, since Pritzker has no constitutional authority to arbitrarily cherry pick which businesses he deems “essential” while bankrupting others, can’t we all sue him personally? He has no “qualified immunity” if acting outside the scope of his job, right?

    Not a lawyer, but THANK YOU Watchdogs for updating on the legal attempts at ending this theanny.

    Just 2 more years of lockdown. Gov. needs as many people as possible not voting in person come his re-election. Be prepared, 2 more years of lockdown in the name of our health.

    In order to hold our State Legislators accountable we need to ensure we have honest elections. We will not be able to elect true reformers who will do the right thing if the State of Illinois continues with the massive Vote by Mail and electronic voting equipment that is now being exposed throughout the Country as being ripe for election fraud.

    Thank you Tom, John and Kirk for the informative interview and for all that you have been doing to educate residents of Illinois about the State Constitution, and the rule of law.
