    Breitbart ^ | May 21 2020 | DR. SUSAN BERRY
    A group of Maine legislators sent a letter Monday to U.S. Attorney General William Barr, requesting an investigation into Gov. Janet Mills (D) as a result of her numerous executive orders regarding the coronavirus crisis in which, they say, she “has exceeded her executive authority.” In the letter made available to Breitbart News, the lawmakers, all Republicans, led by Maine Rep. John DeVeau, expressed gratitude to Barr for his memorandum to the Department of Justice in April, in which he directed all U.S. attorneys to be watchful of coronavirus restrictions that could violate Americans’ constitutional rights. The legislators wrote: We...

    The Senate failed Thursday to override President Donald Trump’s veto of a bill that would curb his ability to take military action against Iran. The Senate came up short of the two-thirds majority, and it voted 49-44, with seven GOP senators joining Democrats. Seven Republicans broke with Trump: Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Todd Young of Indiana, and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) joined Democrats in February to pass the bill, but he did not vote Thursday. Trump on Wednesday night,...

A battle is brewing between the County and the State of Maine after Maine’s Democrat Governor Janet Mills issued a very strict “stay at home” order.

    A Maine lawmaker is planning to join protesters next week who are demonstrating against the state’s stay-at-home order as similar protests play out across the country against state and local social distancing measures. State Rep. Chris Johansen (R) said he wants to Gov. Janet Mills (D) to ease some of the restrictions she put on local businesses that have been forced to close after being declared non-essential. Johansen is currently hosting an event on Facebook calling Mainers to circle the governor's residence in Augusta to join the “Re-Open Maine” Convoy and Parade. “The 1st amendment enshrines our Right to peaceably...

    Live Action News ^ | April 8, 2020 | Cassy Fiano-Chesser
    A chain of abortion facilities in Maine have taken advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to push a no-contact service for the abortion pill. Just six days after Maine reported its first case of the coronavirus, Maine Family Planning program director Leah Coplon had successfully implemented the program under the guise of social distancing and helping to reduce the spread of the virus. Maine Family Planning was already participating in a clinical trial attempting to prove the safety of TelAbortion with pills dispensed by mail. Currently, an FDA safety system called REMS (Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy) dictates that abortion pills...
  • Sheriff rebels against governor: 'We will not be setting up a police state'

    The coronavirus cannot kill the spirit of American defiance in the face of government orders Americans believe to be unjust, as shown by Scott Nichols, the sheriff of Franklin County, Maine. Democratic Gov. Janet Mills on Friday issued an executive order that requires all out-of-state travelers to self-quarantine for 14 days to lessen the chance of transmitting coronavirus, according to the Portland Press-Herald. The order also tells would-be visitors not to come to Maine if they have symptoms of the virus. Violators could face up to six months in jail and $1,000 fine. "We will not be setting up a...

    For the better part of President Trump’s first term in office, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has been a target of the far-left, because, of course, she does not embrace their radical agenda line-by-line. A noted moderate in the GOP Senate caucus, Sen. Collins votes with both parties, issue by issue. Sen. Collins’ nuanced approach to governance is unfathomable to the far-left. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) sent a fundraising plea, amidst a global health pandemic, for Sen. Collins’ opponent, Sara Gideon, featuring far-left author Stephen King: Friend, I'm just so fed up with watching Susan Collins acquiesce to...

    Folks, this was done to tank the markets. This was done to resist President Trump. This was done to screw over the American worker. The Senate has a $1.6 trillion Wuhan coronavirus bailout package that Democrats co-wrote. They filibustered it on Sunday night. We all know why they’re doing this. This isn’t a secret. The Dow Jones is down some 600 points as we speak and now, they’re trying to logroll stuff that is unrelated to this pandemic. Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) said this move is to shift the economic agenda more to the progressive Left’s vision. Guy wrote up...

    Believe me, these ten minutes are worth your time. Here's Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) absolutely ripping House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Democrats for sneaking in a laundry list of progressive, environmental provisions into the CARES Act, the third phase of Congress's coronavirus response intended to provide aid, relief, and economic security for individuals and businesses during this unpredictable era. Barrasso kicked off his remarks by condemning "the demands by the Democrats to muck up a bill that is designed as a rescue operation for the American people." He next identified the culprit. "Nancy Pelosi flew back from California...

    During a press conference on Friday, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) criticized the federal government’s response to the coronavirus and the “inconsistent” messaging from the federal government. She called on President Trump “to step back and appoint one of our public health officials to be the spokesman” and suggested Dr. Anthony Fauci serve as the spokesperson and give daily briefings on the virus. Collins said, “We are making progress at the federal level, but I am not satisfied with the response. I think that the messaging at the federal level has been inconsistent. And when you’re dealing with a novel virus...

    A U.S. Senate candidate in Maine has selected an unusual logo for campaign T-shirts – the guillotine – citing the need for a revolution to remove big money from politics. The logo, unveiled this week by Democrat Bre Kidman, recalls the execution device known for its role in the 18th century French Revolution and is intended to symbolize revolt by low- and middle-income people, Kidman said. “The guillotine is an image which calls to mind what people have done for revolution before,” said Kidman, an attorney who’s running for the seat held by Republican Sen. Susan Collins. “If we can...

    U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, seen as a possible swing vote in President Trump’s impeachment trial, announced on the Senate floor Tuesday that she will not vote to remove the president. “This decision is not about whether you like or dislike this president or agree with or oppose his policies or approve or disapprove of his conduct in other circumstances,” Collins said. “Rather, it is about whether the charges meet the very high constitutional standard of treason, bribery or other high crimes or misdemeanors.”

    Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the social media giant will continue to support free expression and encrypted content on its platform in a new interview. "This is the new approach, and I think it's going to piss off a lot of people. But frankly, the old approach was pissing off a lot of people too, so let's try something different," Zuckerberg said Friday at the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit in Utah, CNN reported. "Increasingly we're getting called to censor a lot of different kinds of content that makes me really uncomfortable," Zuckerberg continued. Zuckerberg said the company's...

    A threat made Friday that mentioned U.S. Sen. Susan Collins forced several schools from Machias to Bangor and Aroostook County into a “soft lockdown.” School remained in session, but no one could enter or leave the buildings without authorization. A business in Orono received the threat Friday morning through a “vague, email message,” according to Orono High School Principal Reg Ruhlin. Scott Porter, the superintendent of Machias schools, said the threat specified Collins and listed high schools in Bangor, Brewer, East Millinocket, Caribou, Houlton, Madawaska, Jonesport, Machias and Harrington. School districts did not see the actual message, according to Brewer...
