Legislation Being Suggested By Illinois Lawmaker Would Give Unprecedented Power To Illinois Governor; This, Folks, Is How Liberty Dies

(Tea Party PAC) – It’s perfectly acceptable to be scared of the coronavirus that has swept throughout the globe leaving a trail of bodies and extremely ill individuals in its wake. Fear is only natural and normal. Often times, fear can be helpful. It warns us of danger. Fear makes it possible for us to stay safe, to stay alive. To protect that which matters most to us.

Fear is like a fire. When it’s kept within a pit or proper boundaries it provides warmth and safety. When it rages out of control, it leaves nothing but a path of destruction and desolation. A pile of ashes is all that is left in the wake of uncontrolled fear.

And that’s the problem with what’s happening now in many states around the country, especially in Illinois. Folks have allowed a healthy fear of a disease, something that should drive them to better personal hygiene and other practical measures, take over their lives and push them so deep into the grip of terror they are willing to allow the government to strip away their freedoms and rights.

And the radical left in this country are taking full advantage of that fear to justify taking unprecedented action to usurp power and authority for themselves.

Take what one Illinois lawmaker is suggesting in new legislation as a perfect example.

Apparently, this new bill would give Gov. J.B. Pritzker the power to confiscate property from business owners and citizens during state emergencies. Like the coronavirus pandemic for instance.

Here’s more from Gateway Pundit:

Senator William E. Brady, the Illinois Minority leader in the state senate, introduced legislation on Wednesday that will give government the right to confiscate property from business owners who defy their lockdown orders.

Senator Brady is a Republican.

According to the proposed legislation SB3993 the government will set “safe place of business protocols” for businesses to follow to reopen.

The protocols include:

The protocols shall include:

(1) customer density limits based on business facilities’ square footage and appropriate social distancing;

(2) face covering requirements for employees; and

(3) regular cleaning regimens.

(d) The Department shall publish additional protocols for specific customer-facing businesses as necessary.

(e) A business that complies with the protocols may reopen and rehire staff at its discretion as soon as is practical.

(f) A hospital or other healthcare facility that abides by the protocols and is located in a Region with adequate intensive care unit capacity may offer the full spectrum of inpatient and outpatient care and treatment to its patients.

The Department shall conduct a public information campaign to explain hospitals’ and healthcare facilities’ safety protocols and to urge patients not to put off any necessary care.

(g) A day care center, as that term is defined under Section 2.09 of the Child Care Act of 1969, may reopen or expand its capacity at its discretion and as soon as is practical if it complies with the protocols.

The legislation then goes on to describe how the Illinois governor can confiscate personal property during a state emergency.

(20 ILCS 3305/7) (from Ch. 127, par. 1057)

Sec. 7. Emergency Powers of the Governor.

(4) On behalf of this State to take possession of, and to acquire full title or a lesser specified interest in, any personal property as may be necessary to accomplish the objectives set forth in Section 2 of this Act, including: airplanes, automobiles, trucks, trailers, buses, and other vehicles; coal, oils, gasoline, and other fuels and means of propulsion; explosives, materials, equipment, and supplies; animals and livestock; feed and seed; food and provisions for humans and animals; clothing and bedding; and medicines and medical and surgical supplies; and to take possession of and for a limited period occupy and use any real estate necessary to accomplish those objectives; but only upon the undertaking by the State to pay just compensation therefor as in this Act provided, and then only under the following provisions:

a. The Governor, or the person or persons as the Governor may authorize so to do, may forthwith take possession of property for and on behalf of the State; provided, however, that the Governor or persons shall

SB3993 – 5 – LRB101 21409 CPF 72043 b

simultaneously with the taking, deliver to the owner or his or her agent, if the identity of the owner or agency is known or readily ascertainable, a signed statement in writing, that shall include the name and address of the owner, the date and place of the taking, description of the property sufficient to identify it, a statement of interest in the property that is being so taken, and, if possible, a statement in writing, signed by the owner, setting forth the sum that he or 0 she is willing to accept as just compensation for the property or use. Whether or not the owner or agent is known or readily ascertainable, a true copy of the statement shall promptly be filed by the Governor or the person with the Director, who shall keep the docket of the statements. In cases where the sum that the owner is willing to accept as just compensation is less than $1,000, copies of the statements shall also be filed by the Director with, and shall be passed upon by an Emergency Management Claims Commission, consisting of 3 disinterested citizens who shall be appointed by the Governor, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, within 20 days after the Governor’s declaration of a disaster, and if the sum fixed by them as just compensation be less than $1,000 and is accepted in writing by the owner, then the State Treasurer out of funds appropriated for these purposes, shall, upon certification thereof by the Emergency Management Claims Commission, cause the sum so certified forthwith to be paid to the owner. The Emergency Management Claims Commission is hereby given the power to issue appropriate subpoenas and to administer oaths to witnesses and shall keep appropriate minutes and other records of its actions upon and the disposition made of all claims.

This is beyond disturbing, folks. Here we have the death of the very liberty we all take for granted. Power like this should never be handed over to the government, especially when it is being suggested during a time of deep, unrelenting fear and terror.

Liberals want the full power of the people so they can institute socialism brick by brick. It’s a scheme they’ve been working on for decades, infiltrating every part of culture and society in order to make it happen. And now we’re seeing the fruit of all that work.

We must resist this power grab, folks. Pay attention. Let your voices be heard.

  1. My buddy’s sister-in-law makes $69/hour on the computer. She has been fired from work for nine months but last month her check was $12345 just working on the computer for a few hours.

    Go Here…………. W­o­r­k­4­6.Co­m

  2. So what, exactly, prevents the businesses from just saying “Screw it. We close” and all leave Illinois? Or is there a provision in the proposal to make them stay in Illinois?

  3. The communist was like little baby compare to what they want to do. “Animal farm” was like preschool compare to our position we are in right now, and it is going to get better….. It’s time to move out of Illinois. Let them eat what they prepared for us.

  4. Inch by inch it’s coming, just like everything else that’s happened and happening— We’ve let society but in THIS case-politicians -keep raising the bar of MORE government-this translates into MORE POWER =MORE CONTROL = COMMUNISM and SOCIALISM all rolled into one. This has become the agenda of the Democratic Party- and this my friends is and will continue to -INCH by INCH take away our Constitutional Rights . This RINO William Brady has got to be VOTED OUT – he undoubtedly has succumbed to the thirst for MORE POWER , MORE CONTROL of our lives . This needs to be STOPPED NOW or the INCHES TURN INTO a POINT OF NO RETURN if not seriously addressed- look around and you CAN SEE what happens to society if we keep LETTING ‘THINGS’ SLIDE by DOING NOTHING . Let’s NOT WAIT for SOMEONE ELSE to do something !!!!!


  6. I thought I immigrated to America. Am I still in America? Where am I?

    And I see that the party that split America in 1860 and caused a Civil War which cost the lives of hundreds of thousands, all because they did not want to accept the outcome of an election, AGAIN do not want to accept the outcome of an election, and is up to it’s old tricks again.

    For the last 3 years the democrats have used their control of the marxist media to attack this President, just like they attacked President Lincoln, and with their constant barrage of lies they have created a split in America between those who tune in only to the marxist media and who swallow everything that media tells them, and those who use their minds for critical thinking, source their news from multiple providers with different perspectives, and who have come to realize that the marxist media are pathologocal liars, and never more so than when they have to report anything about this President.

    This fat Illinois governor is out of control and lackeys, like this so-called republican senator minority leader, William E. Brady, are enablers of his behavior.

    If a so-called republican like Brady acts exactly like the democrats, so that no one can see a nickel’s worth of difference between republicans and democrats, then why would anyone fed up with the bad governance under the democrats even bother to come to the polls to elect a republican? To borrow a concept from George Orwell’s animal farm, when republicans acts like democrats “it becomes such that an observer would not be able to distinguish human from animal”.

    Brady is a born loser who will die a loser, like too many in the republican party. John McCain and the joker from Utah who lost spectacularly to obama in 2012, and whose name my brain dismisses as not important enough to remember, both come to mind when I think about losers.

    President Trump has really saved the republican party from the irrelevance of chronic losership, which would have been quickly followed by extinction, by showing them again how to stand like men on principle and speak from principle, regardless of leftist attacks by the marxist media, which is really just the propaganda wing of the democrat party.

    Hopefully, enough democrats wake from their stupor to give republicans both the house and the senate so that this President can stand against the rising tide of fascism that is China under Communist rule.

    Otherwise, the policy of appeasement by the democrats, or the appearance of peace at all costs, will embolden the Chinese Communists, and will lead inevitably to war.

  7. Ham sandwich will not win this battle!…the people of Illinois are starting to get anxious!…a lot of people not wearing masks..nobody is sick!!

  8. Is this guy nuts? And he’s a legislator?? That’s straight up communism. This goofy bill better not pass…or else. Lock and load before the Land of Lincoln becomes a slave state.

  9. Is it possible that it is a sort of Trojan Horse ploy? Once in force, then the owners of businesses shut down by the government in the lockdown would be able to demand compensation from the government for their losses?
