Posted on 07/15/2020 9:28:17 PM PDT by george76
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry (R) said Wednesday in a 9-page legal opinion that the Democrat governors mask mandate is likely unconstitutional and unenforceable.
Democrat Governor John Bel Edwards over the weekend announced a statewide mask mandate and additional restrictions
Landry also said that the Governor has no power to make substantive law through an executive order, even in an emergency and asserts that the mask mandate exposes individuals to unlawful searches and seizures, as well as burdens them with exposing potentially sensitive personal health information and having it exposed to others in a public setting.
The mask mandate flatly violates due process, separation of powers, the delegation clause, state public accommodation anti-discrimination laws and it is unenforceable,
Democrat governors across the US have issued similar unconstitutional statewide mask mandates.
Its a slippery slope. Whats next? Mandatory burkas for women?

Che the governator....
its ture for every governor tyrant who’s issued these ‘orders’
none of them have legislative power to just create law by themselves out of thin air
you would think more people on this site would know this and denounce wvery govtard who does this
but too many here are totally down with it because it makes them feel good
the fearpers here love being little eichmann’s when it joves with what they want, they just prove they aren’t true conservatives
These Rat and RINO governors need to rot in prison.
These on gong executive orders from many states negate the legislature and eliminate a representative form of government. That make them all unconstitutional based on that alone.
Governor Creosote here in Illinois got a smack down declaring all of his orders illegal and unenforceable 3 weeks ago. He promised to appeal but hasnt bothered to file one yet.
Not one word about it in the local press.
How are they going to enforce this? There have already been violent confrontations over this. A bus driver in the UK was beaten to death over this crap. Are the people who are destroying law enforcement and refusing to stop the rioting and monument wreckers really going to throw people without masks into the gulag? We are headed toward utter chaos.
I think $hit for Brains (Insleep) in WA and Nuetersome in Ca have mask mandates too.
I wonder. La. is a mix of ‘common law’ and ‘civil law’.
No idea what powers they give their Governor.
Wish the AG had addressed that,
It’s also a violation of federal law in the workplace. Where is Barr?
All of the Commie governors used the Coronavirus to stage coups and concentrate all government power in themselves. One way or another, a "Republican Form of Government" (as required by Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution) must be restored in those States.
Governor Bullock bulled his way into the pile today, announcing an EO that
masks are MANDATED as of today. No end in sight. I think hes trying to beg some support for his ongoing campaign of becoming our next Democrat senator.
Hes lowered his ambitions by just a wee bit. He was trying to run for President as well. He managed to make it to the debate stage a couple of times but got washed out very quickly.
Many will die.
Do has Abbott inTexas
Yes. As soon as they think they can get away with it, they will.
That is the end-state goal of the Left: the removal of their political opponents. By Any Means Necessary.
Well heres a bit of hopeful news for the morning!
I have wondered why no one is challenging these mask orders on constitutional grounds. I hope this is the first of many. Heck, probably about 90% of the orders of these demented governors and mayors, which shut down businesses, locked people in their homes, and ruined their lives and those of their children, were flatly unconstitutional.
Its late but theres still time to start challenging this, particularly since they seem to be trying to rev up the shutdown again.
Once, it was mandated that negroes sit at the back of the bus in Alabama.
One woman said to herself, This is bullshit and ignored the mandate.
We need millions of new Rosa Parks to engage in the civil disobedience that is at the core of our government of the people.
No matter what the sign says, walk in without a mask and make them confront you. This simple act, repeated millions of times daily, will show the elites and the tinhorn politicians that they really have no power other than what we allow them to have -a first step in taking our country back.
The second step is on 11/03/20
I suspect that if this is not addressed promptly, the apparently omnipotent governors -- mostly, but not limited to, Democrat/Left governors -- who think they have unchecked power to suspend Constitutional rights and, without any legislative or judicial action, control the lives of hundreds of millions of American citizens will, following Trump's re-election, "punish" voters by commanding their periodic lockdowns and by maintaining the elevated level of fear, distrust, depression and anger among the citizens of "their" states for the next four years!
“Governor Bullock bulled his way into the pile today, announcing an EO that

Can you even believe this a$$hole?
We live in Montana!
Go Steve Daines!
I’m thinking about a Steve Daines 2020 face mask.
“One woman said to herself, This is bullshit and ignored the mandate.”
That woman worked for the NAACP and was asked to resist - with full legal backing of the NAACP.
