Small COVID Victory – Pennsylvania Restaurant Owner Wins Fight Against Unilateral State Decrees…

A Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, restaurant took their COVID-19 $10,000 state fine to court and said “not guilty.”   The judge agreed with their legal position that Governor Tom Wolf’s unilateral decrees were arbitrary, unconstitutional and not enforceable.

(Via Breitbart) […]  “The crux of the legal argument is that orders that have been issued by the Governor and The Department of Health are legally unenforceable. Judge Garvey agreed with that argument,” said Eric Winter, the restaurant’s lawyer.

The restaurant, which is owned by siblings Michael Mangano and Christine Wartluft, opened its doors in May as restrictions ran rampant throughout the state in an effort to “make a living.” (read more)

If one restaurant and/or bar opens, the state can and will target the owner. But if every bar and restaurant in town opens; and if everyone ignores and dispatches the silly dictates of the local, regional or state officials; there isn’t a damned thing they can do about it.

Unfortunately, the cost of fighting back against these dictates is considerable. Lawyers and legal fights cost money; thus the state enforcement authorities start out with a massive advantage to deny freedom.

However, the power of the local, regional or state authority comes from the expressed consent of the people. As soon as the majority of people deny that consent, those officials and state authoritarians lose all of their power.  Mass civil disobedience works specifically well in countering arbitrary dictates.  The reason most do not fight is their fear. Yes, it really is that simple.

(Local CBS News) […]  Masks and social distancing were not required at the restaurant and they didn’t have plexiglass barriers.

The restaurant’s spokesperson Mike Magnano said, “We were absolutely ecstatic. You know a lot of people said a lot of different things about Taste of Sicily. We were selfish. All we cared about was business and money and it’s like we need to make a living.”

Magnano said after being closed during the statewide shutdown, Taste of Sicily opened back up to full capacity in the yellow phase citing financial struggles.

“Seeing that again, the business needed it. The family needed it and they needed to do things to survive. They went ahead and reopened. And at that point, they had great support from the local level elected officials,” said Eric Winter, Attorney for Prince Law Offices.

Magnano’s attorney Winter said the Department of Agriculture tried to cite the restaurant for things they couldn’t lawfully cite them for. Winter adds citations have to be prosecuted by the attorney general or local district attorney.

Taste of Sicily pleaded not guilty. Judge Carl Garvey ruled the family business was unconstitutionally cited and the restaurant was found not guilty.

“The crux of the legal argument is that orders that have been issued by the Governor and The Department of Health are legally unenforceable. Judge Garvey agreed with that argument, “Winter said.  (read more)

This case appears to be a good example of Blue rules inside Red territories.  The local officials were on the side of the restaurant.  Once again highlighting just how fragmented the application of COVID-19 rules are depending on very specific areas and regions.

This situation, and the acceptance of an environment that is not conducive to freedom, is what helps drive many people out of the blue states, regions and even pockets.

In the aggregate Americans do not like these arbitrary dictates; and when you travel to freedom zones you will notice there are large numbers of very affluent democrats who have hypocritically fled from the choking outcome of their politics.  Those far-left ideologues who can afford to leave blue regions do so; leaving the working class to cope with the crisis they create.  It’s the most hypocritical reality imaginable.

It’s madness really.

      Apart from the facial insufficiency of these decrees, they are utterly arbitrary and capricious. A resident of an unaffected area of Florida (even by the silly statistics the Tyrants rely on in making policy) cannot freely travel to NYS (even though the same silly statistics say NY is worse).

    It is unconstitutional to silence American citizens, restrict their ability to earn a living and congregate peacefully, play doctor and force them to take a vaccine. Every single thing these activists are doing to cancel America must be challenged and declared unconstitutional, once and for all!

        However, right now, I believe the biggest contribution (and there are many), of the Trump Presidency is how it has jerked the American populace out of their civic apathy. I see this as a perfect opportunity to educate the participation trophy generations as to why our Republic was founded on our great constitutional principles of “Individual and Private Property Rights”. I see more people engaged in the political discussion than I have seen in my lifetime.

        For the first time in years I can see our Republic getting a needed re-birth. It is messy as hell, but I would bet our founders thought their fight for Freedom and Liberty was every bit as messy.

            The Tea Party lacked real leadership with a clearly defined direction/strategy. The Tea Party was a grassroots movement made up of the same patriots right here on this site rallying for Trump and in essence the Tea Party hasn’t gone anywhere, the ideals are alive and will continue to prosper under the President.
            Actually only now are we pressing the battle forward with Trump on the inside. I can see it dimly others can see much clearer than I. The battle began 2016 and continues to be fought the left communist have never experienced the push they’re getting and they’re screaming and crying and angry they play dirty.
            But they gonna lose, the truth of the matter there is no way they can win as long as we continue pushing them, exposing them. They will eventually come apart at the seams. This is what Sundance has been saying the whole time if we stick together stay strong, positive and upbeat they can’t win.
            They only win if we quit fighting back. And I can tell there’s too many tough individuals in this country to quit.
            It ain’t just talk when Trump says we are of the same blood of those who turned this country into greatest power in the world. I know that it’s true there’s too many of us who refuse to roll over.

              IMHO,
              The Tea Party had clear goals, having focused on the nexus of the problem.

              Their goal was to primary REPUBLICONS in the Senate, who were ignoring, contemptuosly, the base they were SUPPOSED t “represent” and working hand in glove with the opposition.

              And so, caught by surprice when one of their own was succesfully primaried, they asked the Obama admin to slow down the IRS tax exempt applications, in order to stymie the Tea partiy groups, long enough for an infiltrate and disrupt operation, and general demoralisation to take its toll.

              I suspect the pressure the IRS put on tea party groups, to furnish membership rolls, was so they could do NSA about searches on big donors, to blackmail or discredit them.

              McConnell and co. got access to contractors, too. Thats why Republicons have resisted any effort to reform FISA.

          And a good opinion it is, at that.

          I guess I look at it this way: I actually agree with your perspective at this moment in time. But I believe the moment is extraordinarily delicate.

          Perhaps a metaphor will do here to explain what I mean.

          When you put down grass seed to grow (the seed being the “rejection of apathy” let’s say), if you give it plenty of water it will sprout a nice green whisker stalk within a week. But then, you have about a month or 6 weeks, when it may grow a little longer, but the blade remains thin; it doesn’t look like your normal mature grass, though it may be as long. This is a critical time if you hope to have successful turf.

          The *precise* amount of water, sunlight, fertilizer, etc. must occur and be very well tended for this grass to turn in to a part of your normal lawn and blend in the way you want it to. Otherwise, sure, you had the formerly brown dirt patch spring to life with some green for 8 weeks or so, but you’re quickly back to brown dirt, only much more frustrated than you were when you set out the first time to “fix this problem spot/area once and for all!”

          I feel like we are in that critical stage. I do see what you see, but it is the green immature blades I mentioned, not really “new lawn” but full green cover and pleasing to the eye for now. Without re-election for our President, we’ll quickly return to our brown dirt patch again.

If you undermine your neighbors businesses you should no longer be welcome in any of them.

    That takes courage though and at the moment they are able to seat enough to just get by. One Owner I talked to 2 weeks ago did tell me they were going to open indoors regardless the next weekend but I think the state drew down the restrictions 2 days later. Especially with it getting colder restricting outdoor seating there will not be acceptance of new lock downs here in the IL suburbs of st louis.

    Timely and great ruling. Regarding the commentary about liberals ruining an area and moving to a red area it is rampant in the states around California. Look at Arizona and Nevada; also Idaho and parts of Montana.

    I personally refuse to wear a mask as all the science (the real science not the fake TV stuff) shows they do not work and are ineffective against viruses. The virtue signaling and brow beating is unreal and I am personally fearful for the future of our society.

    We just had a blow up with relatives who are addicted to MSM and literally have no idea how illogical and narrow minded their indoctrinated beliefs are. You can put the facts in black and white in front of them, they can agree to those facts, and still turn around and say the conclusion is wrong.

    We have a large following in the industry we operate within and I advised businesses to ignore the edicts and force the politicos to close them down. I argued that by voluntarily complying they would not have damages… but being forced to comply gave them real and measurable damages they could then use to file suit once things chilled.

    ***Treepers Please Read:
    Preface I’ve never placed a header on a post like that. But this is big.
    I live in MI. Whitmer leveraged 2 laws on the books and wrote countless covid “executive orders” against them starting in March. Ludicrous. . 180 in all, One of the 2 laws, , the EPGA Act of 1945, aka “the race riot act” as originally named – was 100% unconstitutional from inception and slipped onto the books during battle of Okinawa. No matter: we learned just because it’s a law doesn’t make it constitutionall. Big wake up.

    Net: MI Suprene court declared EPGA unconstituonal and whimer’s abuse of emergency act of 1976 illegal. All of her EO’s wiped out. Done. The 107 page ruling is a work of art. Red pill for me from legal ground perspective.

    A soccer mom, as she might say, constitutional attorney from Grand Rapids crushed Whitmer. Katherine Henry. Please go to her Restore Freedom Initiative site and watch her YouTube video as she breaks down all mask orders from a constituonal perspective. Priceless. It changed everything for me. I’m now “engaged” with local school board, their mean spirited illegal mask “edict” is unreal work of sick progressive intimidation. It child abuse. And unlicensed practice of medicine. I learned all this from Katherine Henry.

    Whitmer tried a clone using her health dept. Not a single member of law enforcement will touch it. Or they are liable for big judgment should they tase a mom watching a HS football game.

    Every single large corporate entity like CVS Walgreen’s Home Depot Dick’s have ripped their signs down, and/or placed “not medically tolerable” exemption on their site.. even Whimers original mask order had that exemption and I swear no one read it but me. I never wore a mask and have not yet. I was thrown out once, went quietly, and will never be back.

    It ALL starts with US. Do not wear a mask if you don’t want to. Ever. Get tased get a huge payout. Otherwise this will never end.

    Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Rachel Levine is a “transgender”.

    It isn’t clear from the wiki page on Secretary of Health Rachel Levine if “she” has undergone a biological “sex change” operation or is, instead, “identifying” as the female “gender”. (IMO, the wiki article appears to be carefully-worded to avoid having to state it positivelly one way or the other). [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rachel_Levine ]

    What I want to say is that, *I* choose to recognize someone’s “sex” (biological) vs. their “gender” (subject to the moment-by-moment whims of the mind); and therefore, if Levine has *not* undergone a “sex change” operation, then “she” is a “cross-dressing” MALE and not a “she” (recognizing the “sex” not the “gender”).

    The Left doesn’t get to make all the rules; and I disagree with their “rule” that we must recognize someone’s “gender” and not their “sex”. I am not aware of any law that makes it illegal to recognize someone’s biological sex vs. their self–chosen “gender” identity.

    I choose to recognize their “sex”, not their “gender”.

    Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Rachel Levine is a male.

    I don’t care for the whole concept of “identifying” as one thing or another (whether it’s “gender” or something else). It’s a made-up concept brought to us by the Left to further divide everyone into groups that they then set at each other.

    Nota bene: A different wiki page ( https://fact-files.com/dr-rachel-levine-wiki/ ) states: “Rachel, however, doesn’t like to discuss whether she took hormones or had surgery as she calls it a private medical matter.“. If that is true, then Levine isn’t revealing if he has or has not had SRS (sex-reassignment surgery). Under that circumstance, my choice to refer to him as HE is bolstered.

      Sundance himself said we are the majority then I think we should start pushing our weigh around, use it to push Trump in for four more and the use it to change a bunch of things that we don’t like.

      When someone declares something obviously and provably wrong like their “belief” they are the gender they are in reality NOT, I assign it to mental health issues. Since when do you appoint to leadership, those who are imbalanced mentally?

      The left keeps screaming at the world to “follow the science” for COVID and climate change but then insist that we ignore biological science. Nope, science is science, period!

    An English man comes to the rescue. PTrump should memorize this talk and repeat it 24/7.

    I’m sure Herr Wolf will appeal this decision just like he did with the Stickman decision. But I’ll take whatever victories I can get here in PA. 😁

    People are so fearful of running afoul of these dictators decrees. Sad how timid people really are.

    My friends and I are going to go and eat at Taste of Sicily soon. Good for them. Here in Chester Co we are still pretty shut down. We are a fairly blue county of late but we are working hard to make it red. We have some good local candidates that we are hoping to get across the finish line. I see quite a few Trump signs but a lot of people don’t put them out because they get stolen. That’s a huge problem here.
    My grandson goes to a college in FL and they are not allowing the students to go home for Thanksgiving for fear they go back with covid. How ridiculous. I don’t see how that is constitutional. In my opinion it is time for the president to call off the national emergency.

    Economy-Crushing COVID-19 Lockdowns Contributed To 100,000 US Deaths, New CDC Guidance Suggests – 21 Oct 2020

    https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/covid-19-lockdowns-may-have-caused-more-100000-avoidable-deaths

    While 200,000 of the 300k excess deaths have been directly attributed to COVID-19, researchers suspect that the other 100,000 excess deaths were indirectly caused by COVID-19: For example, they might have been drug overdoses or suicides brought on by depression, or a fatal stroke caused by a lack of testing availability.

    Government has no business dictating social conventions and using its infinite power to do so.

    If the government had a scientific basis for doing so (think alcohol) they would be showing us the science supportive of their position.

    In lieu of the science that does not exist, they push the opinion of scientists.

    Do not submit to their will.

    I just spent a week in northern Michigan. Hardly anyone was wearing masks. The bar’s and restaurants were packed, no social distancing. I think they took Sundances suggestions. The best sign I saw was, save America vote for Trump. I was truly in Trump country.
