SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) A U.S. judge in Spokane has firmly rejected a water park's challenge to Gov. Jay Inslee's emergency powers as the state responds to the coronavirus pandemic.

Slidewaters LLC, a water park in Chelan, sued the governor and the Department of Labor Industries last month, saying that Inslee abused his power in declaring the emergency and that the state's restrictions were likely to prevent it from opening for the summer.

I am furious with these Communists who believe that Emergency Acts give them limitless power. They are all fragile sissies who curl up in their corners whenever someone says something MEAN.

The Mask is a sign of submission to the state. Like Jizlya, only more public.

I just cannot stand how the government is using this as a way to grab as much power as they want.

A governor can declare anything a health threat and close any and all businesses indefinitely without any need to prove the harm. It is tyranny, pure and simple.

That triggered a question in my mind. If Obama is arrested for using his office for personal gain, the investigation might turn up his actual birth circumstances and determine him ineligible to hold the office of President.

Would that make all the ‘Obama’ judges go away?

You know, this is not good. However, the argument for shutting down a water park under a “health emergency” is at least arguably Constitutional. It is not Constitutional, though, if applied unevenly to different businesses without a rational reason. I don’t know all the facts in this Washington State case.

BUT,CHURCH WORSHIP is an enumerated right contained in the Bill of Rights. The way some courts have summarily dismissed the right to worship should be terrifying to all of us.

Masks are simply

Training Burkas

Submission conditioning seems to work well.

It's the old divide-and-conquer strategy.

The GOP will run several paid shills to divide the right-wing vote, effectively blocking any legit candidate who might threaten their sinecures and rice bowls.

"Bill of Rights? You don't need no Bill of Rights!", he said.

Emergency powers raised in a non emergency situation are illegitimate. Learn it now, learn it later or learn to enjoy the boot on your neck.

Benjamin H. Settle is a Smirking Chimp [Dubya] judge [Western District of Washington].

Of course, the Senate voted him in 99-0 back in 2007, in Communist Washington state.

Thomas O. Rice, who ruled against Slidewaters LLC last week, is a ClownBammy "judge". The Senate voted HIM in 93-4 back in 2012, for the Eastern District of Communist Washington.

Just another Globalist tagteam of Lefty "judges".

It's annoying how these newscorps try to hide the partisan Lefty "judges" who are making these rulings - all while trying to build up "a federal judge today ruled" as The Word Of God...

enumerated rights

Wake up America no such thing exists anymore. Just like private property, you can't truly own a home if the government can tax you out of it, you can only rent it fro the government so long as you pay the rent.(tax)

Open-ended power was not the intent of any legislature. You’d think that lawyers would have anticipated that dictators would seize power with delight. Wolf in PA is just one smarmy tyrant among many.
