Ohio Republicans are pissed. They just filed articles of impeachment against Governor Mike DeWine in response to his unconstitutional COVID-19 orders. Finally, American patriots are pushing back against their tyrannical rulers.
Republicans move to impeach
A group Republicans in Ohio have officially filed articles of impeachment against their own Republican governor.
State Reps John Becker, Nino Vitale, Candice Keller and Paul Zeltwanger called the move an “effort to restore the rule of law.” They claim Governor DeWine implemented unconstitutional orders in response to the pandemic.
Becker slammed Governor DeWine in a statement to reporters, alleging “mismanagement, malfeasance, misfeasance, abuse of power, and other crimes including, but not limited to, meddling in the conduct of a presidential primary election, arbitrarily closing and placing curfews on certain businesses, while allowing other businesses to remain open.”
Governor DeWine issued a stay-at-home order and required citizens to wear masks. Republicans say this is a clear violation of civil liberties, and argued the order “promotes fear, turns neighbors against neighbors, and contracts the economy by making people fearful to leave their homes.”
Tyrannical COVID lockdowns
Governor DeWine brushed off the effort and stood behind his lockdown orders. “As governor, my priorities are to keep people safe and to get our economy moving faster,” DeWine said. “If there are others in the legislature who want to spend their time drawing up resolutions and filing articles, I’d just say to them, ‘Have at it.'”
The articles of impeachment will first go to the House, then require a vote from two-thirds of the Ohio Senate to actually evict the Governor. Many doubt it will ever make it that far.
DeWine’s articles of impeachment come just one week after a county in Michigan approved a resolution to support impeachment of Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Whitmer has faced harsh criticism over her draconian lockdowns in the state.
Almost one year after the start of this pandemic and many Americans are tired of the nonsense. We are eager to get back to work, back to school, and back to our normal lives. End the lockdowns now.
