Harrisburg PA, Pennsylvanians on Tuesday voted to strip Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf’s emergency powers that he imposed during the COVID-19 outbreak. The vote approves constitutional amendments proposed by Republican lawmakers angry over Wolf’s handling of the outbreak. Republicans see the vote as an overture to the upcoming governor’s race.

The move comes just three months after the New York State legislature voted to strip emergency powers from Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo amid mounting scandals. “Last night, Pennsylvanians voted to reject Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf’s overreach of executive powers after his failed COVID response — a clear sign of accountability coming in 2022,” Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel tweeted Wednesday morning.

On the West coast another  cluster of five counties in rural Oregon voted Tuesday to consider seceding from the state and joining Republican-controlled Idaho. Voters in Malheur, Sherman, Grant, Baker, and Lake Counties approved measures demanding county officials move forward with constituent demand to move the state’s borders in an attempt to escape blue-state rule. Last year, Jefferson and Union Counties approved similar measures. Sherman, Jefferson, and Lake Counties lie along the eastern edge of the Cascade Mountains, while Union, Baker, Grant, and Malheur Counties are farther east. Malheur and Baker Counties border Idaho. Move Oregon’s Border for a Greater Idaho supports the efforts, which is an organization that hopes for Idaho to encompass the conservative parts of Oregon and northern California. “This election proves that rural Oregon wants out of Oregon,” the organization’s lead petitioner Mike McCarter said in a statement. “If Oregon really believes in liberal values such as self-determination, the Legislature won’t hold our counties captive against our will. If we’re allowed to vote for which government officials we want, we should be allowed to vote for which government we want as well.”

  1. Love it….defrock these clowns.

  2. More to come. The populace is fed up with arbitrary overreach and suppression of individual rights. When CDC can’t make up their mind what is a sound Covid prevention strategy… when governors can’t figure out how to translate ambiguous CDC guidance into effective public policy… it’s time for a change in leadership. And first step is stripping the incompetents of their self-given power.

  3. Don’t hold your breath waiting for it to come to NJ.

    The majority of residents fall into three categories:
    – Ignorant
    – Misinformed
    – or Self-Loathing Hypocrite
