Well folks, I and along with a host of others were saying back in April and May that these rulings and shutdowns by these governors/emperor's were unconstituional.

I know that now, months later its little solace. But I think this is proof that we were right.

SHutdown ruled unconstituional

our freedoms and liberties don;t just go away. There not some thing that can just be erased when a governor wants them to be gone.



The court closes this opinion as it began, by recognizing that defendants' actions at issue here were undertaken with the good intention of addressing a public health emergency,” Stickman wrote. “But even in an emergency, the authority of government is not unfettered. The liberties protected by the Constitution are not fair-weather freedoms — in place when times are good but able to be cast aside in times of trouble.”



No government or entity should be able to take away our rights.

Good to know one state got it right.
Hopefully, my state will do the same with our "witless" governor. She is way too power hungry.

That was a Federal Judge. There's the chink in the shutdown armor. Now the other States can use the ruling as precedence.

That is actually extremely encouraging -- it only takes one to turn the rolling pebble into a thunderous boulder in our citizens' favor.

As far as I know, the petition drive for repealing her favorite little law is going damn well. Canvassers came through my neighborhood last week, we all signed it. It'll only take 340,000 valid sigs for the legislature to strip it from the books, and the odds look high at present.

The recall petition canvassers haven't been through yet, but likely will soon enough. Although, in lieu of that, I'll absolutely settle for forcing her to ask permission first before doing anything at all, like she's supposed to. It's about damn time she's knocked back a few pegs and put in her place. Governorship is not a be all, end all position and anyone who believes and acts so needs backhanded into the next dimension. Yanking a favored law to abuse is backhand enough for me in the proverbial sense.

Excellent news from Pennsylvania! At least there is one courageous judge in the federal judiciary.

No. It's the first time it went Federal. All of the other rulings were by the State Supreme Court. The fix was in there.

As a Pennsylvania resident, I am waiting to hear a response from Governor Wolf.

Wow! A thread about a Covid whistleblower stating that it was created in a lab. Then this thread, back to back.

Are we getting some type of sanity ?

Mark the date.

Agreed.
I just heard that Secretary of Health, 'Cousin It' was asked three times by reporters at the afternoon news conference to comment on the ruling. I am told that the answer when it finally came was a wishy washy non answer.

"Cousin It" I like that. The best part is that it is even gender neutral.

Not so fast -
"In the United States, qualified immunity is a legal principle that grants government officials performing discretionary functions immunity from civil suits unless the plaintiff shows that the official violated "clearly established statutory or constitutional rights of which a reasonable person would have known"."

With this ruling a case can be made they KNEW tjey had no authority to take some of these actions.

Plus the main target isn't the governors, it's the Orwellian psychopaths in the fake pharma run medical community.

We need these fake doctors in prison, they have proven themselves wayyy too dangerous to be left alone.

The entire world economy was crashed for no good scientific reason and it was unconstitutional and any reasonable person knows this. They made it way way worse than it ever could have been absent their meddling.

I expect charges filed pronto.

If the govt can't enforce the law well I guess the people will have to take matters into their own hands.

This is why we need a govt that enforces laws.

At this point all states who are shut down are violating the Constitution.

Covid-19 hospitalizations and deaths are falling below levels that we typically see with a flu outbreak.
