Wisconsin Senate Votes to Overturn Democrat Governor’s Statewide Mask Mandate

The GOP-led Wisconsin senate on Tuesday voted 18-13 to repeal Democrat Governor Tony Evers’ statewide mask mandate.

Governor Evers issued an emergency 60-day order in August of 2020 and continued to extend his unlawful mandates – until now.

The Republican state lawmakers are working to put an end to Evers’ abuse.

The resolution will head to the GOP-led state assembly on Thursday.

If the joint resolution passes the assembly, it does not need Governor Evers’ approval.

“Governor Evers has abused his limited authority for far too long by repeatedly issuing unlawful orders beyond his 60-day emergency powers,” Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu, R-Oostburg said in a statement. “The Senate voted to end the executive overreach and restore our constituents’ voice in the legislative process.”

The Wisconsin State Journal reported:

Republicans in the state Senate voted Tuesday to repeal Gov. Tony Evers’ statewide mask mandate —

A spokeswoman for Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, said the resolution will come before the Assembly on Thursday, but did not indicate how much support the measure has in the chamber. Republican leaders in the Assembly have not sponsored the resolution.

Measures added back to the bill would prohibit employers from mandating vaccines for employees and allow local public health officials the ability to limit gatherings at churches and other places of worship. Another amendment would grant the state’s GOP-led budget committee authority over how the state spends future federal funds dedicated to the pandemic — a measure Evers has opposed.

Other items in the package that already have passed the Senate would limit COVID-19 liability claims against employers, schools, public health care providers and local governments. It also would extend the state’s one-week waiting period waiver for unemployment benefits and allow for Medicaid coverage for COVID-19 testing and vaccines.

If the Assembly votes Thursday to eliminate the state mask rule, local orders, like those in Madison and Milwaukee, would remain in effect. Dane County’s local order requires everyone age five and older to wear a mask when indoors, with some exceptions.

BREAKING: Markets Spooked Causing Problems with Multiple Online Traders and Trading Companies

The US Markets are spooked after short sells and counteracting actions are causing problems for online trading companies.

US markets are confused after a series of events over the past few days.  One company involved in the frenzy is GameStop according to MarketWatch:

On Wednesday, shares of GameStop  GME, +131.98%  shares rose 141%, pushing the company’s market value to an eye-popping $25 billion from a little over $1 billion at the start of the month and $10 billion at the end of Tuesday’s action.

The parabolic ride higher for GameStop, driven by a klatch of investors congregating on sites like Reddit’s WallStreetBest forum, has made the company the most traded stock in the U.S., according to Deutsche Bank data.

In fact, Deutsche Bank’s strategist Jim Reid said that more GameStop shares traded by value yesterday than either Tesla Inc. TSLA, +0.02% or Apple AAPL, +0.05%, a pair of companies that dwarf GameStop by market value.

MarketWatch continues:

The rise in GameStop’s shares is potentially minting millionaires among the individual investor crowd but many short selling investors, those betting that the bricks-and-mortar company, which operates more than 5,000 retail video game stores in the U.S., Canada and Europe, was going to eventually lose value have been forced to unwind their bearish bets, accelerating the stock’s rise.

Hedge fund Melvin Capital closed out its short position in GameStop fund manager Gabe Plotkin told CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin on Tuesday, noting that the position was closed out Tuesday afternoon following a huge loss.

In addition, down detector on Twitter reported investment services going down or having problems this morning:

The markets overall are down about 1% at 1pm Eastern.  At the same time investment brokerages reported curtailing trading on GameStop and others:

Some major brokerage houses have begun to respond to a frenetic surge in the price of shares of companies that has been attributed to rabid buying by individual investors on social-media platforms.

On Wednesday, TD Ameritrade said it was restricting trading for GameStop and AMC Entertainment Holdings as well as other names, amid a triple-digit percentage surge in the price of those companies in recent days…

…The restrictive moves come as shares of videogame retailer GameStock have shot up 1,600% in January, as traders gathered in online chat forums to take large bets on the stock using options, often out-of-the-money calls that pay off only if the stock rises in value over a set period.

Traders on sites like Reddit’s WallStreetBets, and using trading platforms like Robinhood, have clashed with hedge-fund investors, sparking a battle between prominent Wall Street short sellers and individual investors in GameStop shares.

A Robinhood spokeswoman said that officials at the popular trading platform “continuously monitor the markets and adjust as we feel necessary for the benefit of our customers.”

Robinhood said it also moved raised requirements for GME and AMC to 100%, emphasizing that Robinhood doesn’t allow shorting of equities or allow customers to trade naked options.

However, the recent run-up in GameStop has been spilling over into other areas of the market, with shares of companies like AMC Entertainment also surging in price on Wednesday, along with shares of Bed Bath & Beyond and retailer Express Inc. whose shares were up 250%.

As the big hedge funds began to short sell certain companies, the word on social media was to buy the stocks.  This cost the short sellers millions as stocks like AMC Theaters, GameStop and Bed, Bath and Beyond went way up rather than further down.

These are the big gains today as the overall markets are down 1% almost across the board.

“We’re Not Going to Ban Fracking” – Biden Mumbles Through Climate Change Presser, Signs More Executive Orders – Then Calls a Lid (VIDEO)

Joe Biden mumbled through a “Climate Change” presser on Wednesday from the White House.

After waging a war on energy since his inauguration, Biden is now claiming his administration is not going to ban fracking.

“Let me be clear, and I know this always comes up, we’re not going to ban fracking,” said Biden.

Translation: The Biden Admin will just regulate fracking out of existence.

WATCH:

Biden signed more executive orders aimed at ‘tackling climate change, creating jobs and restoring scientific integrity’ – whatever that means.

After Biden signed the executive orders, he shuffled out of the room without answering any questions from reporters.

WATCH:

The Biden White House called a travel/photo lid at 2:05 PM ET – the earliest one since Biden was sworn into office.

Dictator Biden has signed more than 3 dozen executive orders in his first week in office as the military occupies DC and the media cheers.

Cancel Culture Media Calls for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to Resign Over Past Comments — Rep. Greene HITS BACK

CNN published a hit piece Wednesday on outspoken freshman Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia.

Democrats and their media are very upset with Marjorie Taylor Greene after she introduced articles of impeachment against corrupt pervert Joe Biden last week following his virtual inauguration.

According to CNN Rep. Greene “liked” Facebook comments that threatened crooked Democrats and FBI operatives.

Greene, who represents Georgia’s 14th Congressional District, frequently posted far-right extremist and debunked conspiracy theories on her page, including the baseless QAnon conspiracy which casts former President Donald Trump in an imagined battle against a sinister cabal of Democrats and celebrities who abuse children.

In one post, from January 2019, Greene liked a comment that said “a bullet to the head would be quicker” to remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In other posts, Greene liked comments about executing FBI agents who, in her eyes, were part of the “deep state” working against Trump.

If Democrats had hoped Rep. Greene was your typical wilting Republican and would cower in a corner, they would be wrong.

Following the report today Rep. Greene went on a tear hitting back at her liberal critics.

Marjorie did NOT hold back.

Responding to radical Marxist Democrat Raphael Warnock–

This pro-Trump representative is a fighter!

JUST IN: DHS Issues National Terrorism Advisory, Takes Veiled Shot at Conservative Media, Trump Supporters – Admits They Have No Info to Indicate Specific, Credible Plot

This is all political theater.

The Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday issued a national terrorism advisory to last several weeks.

“There is currently a heightened threat environment across the United States that is likely to persist over the coming weeks,” the DHS bulletin said before admitting they “do not have any information to indicate a specific, credible plot.”

The DHS took a veiled shot at Trump supporters and conservative media outlets even though the only violence since Biden’s inauguration has been by far-left Antifa and BLM in Seattle, Tacoma and Portland.

“We remain concerned that individuals frustrated with the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances and ideological causes fueled by false narratives could continue to mobilize a broad range of ideologically-motivated actors to incite or commit violence.”

The Biden Administration is using the military and the might of US law enforcement agencies to intimidate and silence anyone who believes the Democrats stole the 2020 election with vote fraud.

Where was this national terrorism advisory last summer when BLM-Antifa were murdering people, razing buildings to the ground, looting and rioting?

Declassified Documents Prove FBI Knowingly and Willfully Lied to FISA Court to Spy on Trump Campaign (Video)

On Tuesday night John Solomon went on with Actionable Intelligence to discuss his breaking report on Just the News.

Newly released documents prove the FBI knowingly and willfully lied to the FISA Court to spy on the Trump Campaign.
The documents came out now as President Trump left office last week.

John Solomon went on with Eric Greitens to discuss this breaking news on Tuesday

The corrupt FBI knowingly and willfully used false reports to spy on President Trump’s campaign. The FBI and DOJ then later continued this lie to ruin lives and continue a fraudulent special counsel of President Trump knowing there was nothing there.

No one has suffered any consequences for this historic political scandal. And the fake news media refused to report on the greatest political scandal in US history next to the 2020 election.

Here is more from Just the News.

Four days before the FBI secured a surveillance warrant against him in fall 2016, Trump campaign adviser Carter Page repeatedly knocked down the key allegations at the heart of the Russia collusion investigation while talking to a government informant who was wearing a wire.

Page’s unwitting statements of innocence to informer Stefan Halper were never shared with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court before it approved four warrants authorizing a full year of surveillance of Page’s communications.

Page’s exculpatory statements were kept from the American people for four years until President Trump declassified them on his final day in office last week. They were obtained by Just the News.

“The core lie is that I met with these sanctioned Russian officials, several of which I never even met in my entire life, but they said that I met them in July,” an FBI transcript quotes Page as telling Halper during an Oct. 17, 2016 interaction at Halper’s farm in Northern Virginia.

At the time, Page was unaware Halper was informing for the FBI or recording him….
