      This news effects so many people in a positive way and that’s all you have to say?
      Must be nice, zoomer!

      I am looking forward to November 5, when the students can be released from the illegal overreach of the corrupt governor and government agencies!

    “I had 800 to 1000 small business owners at various times throughout 2020, in 80 plus of our counties. How many of those business owners do you think a court order closed, because they were not listening to the governor’s executive order? Zero. How many times do you think the governor’s office, or some state level agency took one of those business owners to court, to try to get them to close for not following his executive order? Zero. … So there is an analogy to be dealt with as we talk about school boards.” – Tom Devore

      From Mr. Devore’s presentation, I gather that judge Grischow found that the Gov. has the authority to re-issue consecutive emergency declarations for as long as he likes. I’m frowning at the amount of time the Illinois court system and judge Grischow have taken to process the case(s). Time limits are in order.

      The order of this state’s high court to have consolidated casework seems to have enabled the Sangamon County Circuit Court showcase how to kick the plaintiff’s sense of urgency to curb. Because of the time taking and disregard for the plaintiff’s sense of urgency, its easy to disagree with the court’s finding.

      I also gather now that Mr. Devore is the person the Gov. referenced during a recent presser. At that time, Pritzker said that [they] were “…making schools less safe.” But really, the Pritzker administration not adhering to administrative law is causing local school districts a lot of grief. As a registered attorney and member of the Chicago and Illinois bar associations, Pritzker is truly careless to suggest that his agencies are making schools safer by acting outside the framework of administrative law; or worsening, that any challengers to the slop of his agency would be ‘…making schools less safe.”

      My own high school experience included a graded classroom assignment to write a review of the animated film story from George Orwell’s Animal Farm,

      Thanks for posting the link to Mr. Devore’s presentation here.

        The intent of an emergency declaration, according to 20 ILCS 3305/7, is to mobilize personnel and resources to respond to the emergency, and does not allow deprivation of any right or rights to compensation.

        ” … the Governor shall have and may exercise for a period not to exceed 30 days the following emergency powers; provided, however, that the lapse of the emergency powers shall not, as regards any act or acts occurring or committed within the 30-day period, deprive any person, firm, corporation, political subdivision, or body politic of any right or rights to compensation … ”

        The intent of 745 ILCS 70/ Health Care Right of Conscience Act, is to establish

        #1) A minimum amount of compensation, $2500, where no identifiable damages have occurred, and
        #2) To increase the penalty for identifiable damages threefold, e.g. lost wages for example.

        In the last 30 minutes of Devore’s presentation, he seems to downplay the importance or applicability of the Health Care Right of Conscience Act, although the Act clearly states it applies to “any person”. Pritzker would not be clamoring to amend this Act if it was not applicable.

        Illinois corporate by-laws notwithstanding, 18 U.S. Code 241 and 242 already establish penalties for deprivation of rights, regardless of what the State of Illinois decides to do.

    Just remember, you can’t let up after we win this battle. If you go back to ignoring whats going on with the government, then you are part of the problem.

    We can never put our guard down again. This has always been and will continue to be a BATTLE OF THE WILLS. It truly is Good versus Evil (or God versus Satan). We know that in the end God wins – but how much suffering occurs is the unknown.

    Remember freedom is not free. You have to fight for it because those in power and control will never give you your freedom.

    Pray, Fight and Never Comply to tyranny and giving up your God given Freedoms.

    Sad this didn’t include All Illinois School districts. All facing the same issues.
    —-Even worse… didn’t include the “experimental” vaccine push in our schools on children who have a 99.997% survival rate IF they even get C-19.
    —-PARENTS STEP UP & FIGHT FOR YOUR FREEDOM TO CHOOSE WHAT’S BEST FOR YOUR CHILDREN WHILE YOU STILL HAVE CHILDREN TO FIGHT FOR.
    —-Protect your child’s right to life from the “Experimental C-19 vaccine”. Which has killed 100’s of children. Do your research. Know what’s in it.
    —-Government’s pushing hard for emergency FDA approval of this vaccine for ALL school children by November. WHY? Really, I’m asking WHY? WHY? WHY?
    —-Sept 9, 2021 – IL School District 186 -SPRINGFIELD- passed a recommendation for ISBE to require the C-19 “experimental” vaccine to be included in the immunization requirements for ALL School Children in order to attend school. 
    —-Do you know all school districts were given millions of dollars from the government/CDC to force the masks, push vaccines, weekly testing, social distancing, quarantine, raciest protocols on our children and staff? Look it up, ask your district to show you how much they got.
    —–How many schools remodeled, new builds, additions, upgrades, new HVAC systems, what else is new? Have you seen updates to WiFi, new cell towers, 5G, street lights near your schools? Be concerned, do your research.
    —-Mama and Papa Bears we need you in this battle to save and protect the children, your children – take a stand to keep your Parental Rights to have the Freedom to choose what’s best for your children while you can still fight for it.
    —-God Bless and protect the children & parents, give them wisdom and courage to get them through this battle.
