Gov. Kate Brown signed an executive order Friday extending Oregon’s state of emergency to July 6 in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The move comes roughly two months after the original declaration was signed March 8. It was set to expire May 7.

The new executive order gives the governor the legal authority to maintain the orders she’s issued thus far — including the stay-home order, a moratorium on residential and commercial evictions and other financial stimulus measures — and issue new ones as she sees fit, said Charles Boyle, a spokesman for the governor’s office.

Gov. Kate Brown extends Oregon coronavirus state of emergency to July 6

This is insanity. I have no idea how they are planning on keeping people sequestered that long. I know they are gonna try and bribe them, but the money will be useless if there is nothing to buy, specially food-wise.

And yes, the bribe is in the making:

 

Who wants to bet they will “hear the voice of the People” and loosen the restrictions just a bit but not enough to get back to work? Maybe something along the lines of:

Tell you what: You guys get to walk outside one hour in the mornings and one hour before sunset, once a week trip to the grocery store (no more than 2 hours)  and still get your $2,00 a month and don’t have to pay rent. How does that sound?”

And Antifa will be declared essential workers since they have the experience of being masked.

  1. Sounds like J.Kb needs to open a Northwest office for his pneumatic guillotine sales.

  2. I’m really trying to wrap my mind around the irony of an American state being under a government imposed lockdown during the 4th of July.

    All I can say is “aim small, miss small.”

  3. It’s amazing. As much as I despise Andrew Cuomo, it turns out there are Democrat governors even worse than him.

    She’s going to look awfully stupid if the majority of the country is up and running by July and she still has Oregon shuttered.

  4. Ya know, Mr. Gates could swing by every month, bury my/your house in dollar bills, and drive away, only to return next month…

    And, if there is no food on the Kroger/Safeway/Publix/whatever shelves, then, IANAC( I am not a chef), but, I wager that it is mighty difficult to make a “dollar stew” that is in any way nutritious or filling.

    So, Governor Brown, good luck with that. And, please, Please, PLEASE! For the LOVE of Crom!, Do NOT NOT NOT take or return any calls from/to Governor Whitmer!

    1. I don’t see any way grocery stores go empty, or even lack entire categories like meat or dairy. Most of the suppliers are complaining about overstock, not lack of stock, and not being able to sell to the higher-margin restaurant market.

  5. The new executive order gives the governor the legal authority to maintain the orders she’s issued thus far — including the stay-home order, a moratorium on residential and commercial evictions and other financial stimulus measures — and issue new ones as she sees fit, said Charles Boyle, a spokesman for the governor’s office.

    That’s my Governor, y’all. (Or should I say, “Not My Governor”?)

    Her original order had a written expiration date of 60 days. The legal length of a “catastrophic disaster” order is set in the State Constitution at 30 days unless the Legislature votes to extend it (such a vote must pass by three-fifths majority), which as far as I’m aware, they have not, and there were no related votes on the schedule.

    Her new order … *ahem* … “gives” her the legal authority to extend her own emergency order.

    The first order was an unconstitutional power grab (because of its length, not the order itself), but now she is going a step further by usurping the authority of the Legislature and ordering herself the power to give herself more power.

    If we’re following the State Constitution, this ended almost a month ago, on April 7th, 30 days after the first emergency order was issued. Thus, the State is open.

    But because we’re “Progressive”, it won’t be done until July 6th, if ever.

    (Also note, Gov. Brown is term-limited and can’t seek re-election in 2022. She has nothing to lose. Beware of term-limited “Progressives” in your states.)
