Liberal Red State Governor Gets Powerful Message Sent to Him

North Carolina’s Democrat Governor Roy Cooper is under attack by the State House. The House recently passed a bill that would limit the governor’s emergency powers.

According to The Daily Wire:

The bill was unveiled a year after Cooper first instituted an executive order declaring a state of emergency at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Also known as the Emergency Powers Accountability Act, the proposed legislation passed 69-50 along a party-line vote in the lower chamber, after which it is slated to head to the state Senate for debate.

If passed, the bill would mandate that the governor obtains approval from a majority of the Council of State regarding any statewide emergency declaration that lasts longer than 30 days, according to The Associated Press.

Without the Council’s “concurrence,” the governor’s declaration would expire within seven days. And emergency declarations could be extended for no more than 30 days without additional concurrence by the council.

State law already requires a governor to run some orders past the Council of State. But courts hearing lawsuits challenging Cooper’s powers in responding to the pandemic have nearly always upheld his ability to act on his own due to the public health dangers.

It is unclear why the GOP in North Carolina did not act sooner in limiting the governor’s emergency powers.

I thought the bill was to simply put the Governor in prison for twenty years unless he confesses to known fraud. THAT is how the Democrats do it.

It is about time these governors are raked over the coles for overreaching.
They’re constantly moving the post.
Time to stand up and rumble people.

If the virus emergency does result in the people placing strong limits on government power, nationwide, it will be a strong benefit. Government, at all levels, has WAY too much power over people’s lives and MUST be limited. This must happen – either politically or via revolution. Let’s hope we can avoid bloodshed.

So globalist puppet $oro$ will only order globalist puppet cooper to order globalist agendas for 30 days and then extend the globalist agendas for another 30 days until the globalist agendas are permanent at 30 day intervals .

We have plenty of genuine conservatives in out Republican controlled House and Senate. Therefore, it was a shock to me when that let Gov. Obama Cooper get away with NC allowing your vote to counted a full 12 days after Election Day – the longest allowance of time in the USA. Why they didn’t move to stop his power hunger Leftist decisions sooner is beyond me.
