  • Will Hawaii's emergency lockdowns ever be declared illegal in court?

    The state Constitution says emergency proclamations expire after 60 days, but Hawaii now is in its eighth month of lockdown. Groups nationwide have filed lawsuits against the coronavirus emergency orders declared by their governors. Some have been successful. But what about Hawaii, whose governor just yesterday extended his state-of-emergency proclamation by another month, till the end of November? Can Hawaii’s seemingly interminable state lockdown, first ordered in March, ever be overturned in court? The Grassroot Institute webinar held Friday, Oct. 23, discussed the trends of lawsuits across the nation and whether they offer any hope for Hawaii. Our special guests...

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s administration tightened restrictions on residents on Friday despite a Supreme Court ruling throwing out her coronavirus-related executive orders. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) issued new orders, which include smaller indoor crowd sizes and new requirements for restaurants to collect contact information from patrons. The State News reported: All dine-in food service establishments are now required to maintain accurate records of the names and phone numbers of patrons who purchase food for consumption on the premises, along with the date and time of entry. If patrons refuse to give out this information then...

    While Dr. Anthony Fauci continues to urge caution in opening up bars and restaurants in his role as national coronavirus czar, another Anthony Fauci — his Staten Island cousin — slings sauce in his popular Italian restaurant and laments what his relative has done to the dining industry. “They shouldn’t do the lockdowns. Especially now. If you don’t abide by the rules … shut that area down, but don’t shut down the whole industry,” said the 84-year-old founder of La Fontana, Anthony Fauci. His son, Joe Fauci, 57, who runs the now-iconic eatery in Oakwood, echoed his dad’s concerns, while...

    It’s just the flu, bro. No politician is doing anything now to alleviate Coronavirus lockdowns. I guess it is understandable that these politicians might be distracted/risk averse as they try to get themselves re-elected or get Trump re-elected. There had better be action on ending these lockdowns from the GOP next week. - An overdue cudos to Trump - there was no overbearing national pandemic response strategy and I thank Trump for recognizing state responsibilities are different than federal government responsibilities. You can bet Biden, if elected, would have a national strategy and you can bet we won’t like it....

    Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) said Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that New York State’s more than 6,000 nursing home deaths allegedly caused by his order to put patients infected with coronavirus back in facilities was a conspiracy theory. Co-host Sunny Hostin asked, “There has been a lot of confusion about an alleged March 25th order that directed nursing homes to accept in New York, infected COVID patients, possibly leading to the death of more than 6,000 seniors. Now you say in your book that that was a lie, that New York state never demanded or directed that any nursing home...

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “Coronavirus is now the third leading cause of death in America, and you say, and rightfully so I think, but I’m going to ask you, you’re holding you-know-who responsible for every death in New York from COVID. I’m going to say to you. Why?”

Yeah, Trump's never accomplished nuthin' . . . other than that minor footnote of managing to make himself the most powerful person in the world. How could Scarborough possibly have discussed Kushner's White House performance without mentioning--not a word!--of his groundbreaking success in engineering the...

    Researchers studying the coronavirus and its genetic mutations revealed in a study a genetic mutation that originated in farmworkers in Spain may have contributed to the second wave in Europe, a report said. The Financial Times reported scientists are working to determine what role, if any, variant 20A.EU1 could play in disease's transmission or lethality. Scientists are looking at the mutation's possible effect on the virus' “spike protein." The variant was found in cases across the continent, including more than 80 percent in Spain, the paper reported. The report pointed out the study has not been published in a peer-reviewed...

    Having a Christmas party could land you on the “naughty” list. Police chiefs in the UK warned that family holiday gatherings may be broken up if they flout coronavirus restrictions. Top cops in the counties of West Midlands and Merseyside said officers will intervene if they get reports of COVID-19 rule-breaking over the festive period, The Daily Mail reported. “If we think there’s large groups of people gathering where they shouldn’t be, then police will have to intervene,” David Jamieson, the West Midlands police and crime commissioner, told The Telegraph. “It’s not the police’s job to stop people enjoying their...

    China's economy is leading the charge for a global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, overshadowing the United States which continues to reel from a rising number of COVID-19 cases. The world's second-largest economy grew 4.9 percent between July and September compared to the same quarter last year, according to government data. But economists had expected growth of 5.2 percent. During the first quarter of the year, China's economy shrank by 6.8 percent as the pandemic closed factories and manufacturing plants. It was China's first economic contraction since the recording of quarterly GDP data began in 1992. Yi Gang, China's central...

    Both Germany and France announced new nationwide lockdowns on Wednesday as Europe enters a deadly new phase of the coronavirus pandemic. Chancellor Angela Merkel says German officials have agreed to a four-week shutdown of restaurants, bars, cinemas, theaters and other leisure facilities in a bid to curb a sharp rise in coronavirus infections. Merkel and the country's 16 state governors, who are responsible for imposing and easing restrictions, agreed on the partial lockdown in a videoconference Wednesday. It is set to take effect Monday and last until the end of November. Merkel said, "We must act, and now, to avoid...
