    The Chicago Sun-TImes ^ | May 26, 2020 | Neal Earley
    Suburban Republican Allen Skillicorn insists he would really rather Gov. J.B. Pritzker finish out his term than be booted from office. “Frankly I just hope the governor fixes the unemployment system, so people can get their unemployment and we should move on from this,” the state representative said. “I mean, I would much prefer that.” Whether the governor is able to solve the unemployment problems that have arisen during the coronavirus crisis remains to be seen, but Skillicorn isn’t waiting to find out. The East Dundee Republican launched a recall effort to remove the Chicago Democrat from office — an...

    It was the call heard 'round the world. A May 2 virtual meeting meant for Trenton officials to discuss fighting the devastating coronavirus in the Capital City devolved into a mudslinging free-for-all of homophobic slurs and insults. **SNIP** But things escalated to new heights on May 2, when West Ward Councilwoman Robin Vaughn unloaded on East Ward Councilman Joe Harrison and Gusciora during a conference call for the local leaders to discuss the city’s response to the coronavirus. In her rant, Vaughn called Gusciora a "pedophile,” a “woman” and a “bitch a**,” among a flood of expletives. When Harrison tried...

    Michigan citizens have been flooding a petition at calling for the removal of Governor Gretchen Whitmer, accusing her of gross negligence and failures in handling the coronavirus pandemic.The “Recall Governor Whitmer” petition alleges the governor’s measures, such as “closing and banning various non essential business’s [sic] and activities while leaving others open,” are actually “causing more Michiganders to get sick.”Launched three weeks ago by John Powell, the petition has picked up steam in past days following the governor’s extension of a stay-at-home order and raising penalties for non-compliance to a $1,000 fine and/or six months in jail.In just the 24-hour period between Monday...

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today announced it is requesting manufacturers withdraw all prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) ranitidine drugs from the market immediately. This is the latest step in an ongoing investigation of a contaminant known as N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in ranitidine medications (commonly known by the brand name Zantac). The agency has determined that the impurity in some ranitidine products increases over time and when stored at higher than room temperatures and may result in consumer exposure to unacceptable levels of this impurity. As a result of this immediate market withdrawal request, ranitidine products will not be available for...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | February 1, 2020 | Jim Hoft
    Utah Rep. Tim Quinn (R-Huber City) filed a bill this week to recall an elected US Senator. The bill was filed after months of Mitt Romney, aka Pierre Delecto, trashing and working against the Republican President. Mitt has been among the staunchest voices against President Trump, since joining the US Senate in 2019. President Trump had an excellent relationship with Mitt’s predecessor, Orrin Hatch. UT went for president Trump in 2016, in spite of local rightie ‘resistance’ from a few insignificant fools. Orrin Hatch assured president Trump that Mitt would be a good replacement. Then the president endorsed Mitt for...

    A Utah state lawmaker introduced a bill that would allow voters to recall a sitting U.S. senator before his or her six-year term ends. Republican Rep. Tim Quinn, 56, claimed that the bill had nothing to do with either of the state's current senators, Mike Lee and Mitt Romney, but that he believed the policy was important given the length of a senator’s term.

    Today we are faced with the possible destruction of our God given and constitutionally protected rights in the Commonwealth of Virginia. But we are not going to back down, we are not going to quietly submit, and instead fight back using every means at our disposal. The Virginia State Constitution provides a means to recall an elected official, even the Governor, for a trial in the Circuit Court, determining if the official has violated their oath of office. The Virginia State Constitution is very clear, in Article 13 it states- ‘That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of...

    The blackouts imposed by Pacific Gas & Electric Co. in mid-October affected hundreds of thousands of residents throughout California, causing agricultural operations to come to a virtual standstill in some areas while costing the state’s overall economy as much as $2.6 billion, according to some estimates. It also fueled a valuable conversation about the condition of our forests and the apparent lack of preparedness among our government agencies and utilities.

    ... California residents have come face-to-face with an uncomfortable new reality: Large swaths of the state—by itself the fifth-largest economy in the world, and home to the globe’s most technologically advanced companies—may be subject to the sort of abrupt blackouts normally associated with underdeveloped countries. The state’s three big investor-owned utilities now have regulatory permission to cut off power to parts of their service territories during strong winds to reduce the risk of their electric lines causing wildfires, after at least 21 blazes linked to utility equipment killed more than 100 people and burned tens of thousands of homes in...
