Residents of Illinois fed up with the country’s strictest COVID-19 restrictions are starting to revolt – with protests against Chicago’s cordoned-off lakeshore and no-parking zones around churches, according to Breitbart‘s Warner Todd Huston…

Last Sunday, the city’s first gay mayor sent the Chicago Police Department (CPD) out to erect new signs around the neighborhood of Philadelphia Romanian Church to suddenly create long stretches of new “No parking/tow warning” zones around the building.

Lightfoot also sent the CPD to prowl around outside several of the city’s churches to hand out parking violations, Chicago’s CBS affiliate reported.

The mayor’s campaign against churches comes on the heels of statements by several church officials across the city saying they had no intention of submitting to the mayor’s orders to shut down their houses of worship. –Breitbart

I just can’t do this anymore. I stand with our citizens and businesses of DuPage County who have offered no trouble or no resistance to any rule we put upon them, no matter how strange,” Mendrick wrote on Facebook. “I will not victimize lawful residents of DuPage County trying to put food on their children’s table. I’m so proud of our DuPage citizens who have done everything right from the beginning. All I can say is thank you.”

As Sheriff, I feel that my own 1st amendment constitutional right to free speech has been completely trampled on by a governor who has threatened my Offices’ reimbursement and grant funds as a tool to force me not to speak. I just can’t do this any more. I stand with our citizens and businesses of DuPage County who have offered no trouble or no resistance to any rule we put upon them, no matter how strange. In fact they have communally helped to support us during this pandemic with resources and physical help. I will not have a polarized and threatened society when we are currently experiencing nothing but great treatment from our citizens and businesses. We are not experiencing the same problems as Cook County. We can re-open responsibly and with proper care. We’re not just going to open up with no precautions but science suggests a potentially different route. We did all say from the beginning that we would follow science to the end correct? We have now created “super hot spots” for COVID-19 within our most coveted resources. Our primary food sources. (Costco,Jewel, etc). As our local restaurants continue to dissolve into oblivion, the reliance on food will cause more people to flock to the few that are open, causing very high potential virus transfer, food shortages and a potential collapse of our economy. If other businesses were opened responsibly, wouldn’t that take away from congregation at the only few places left open? This is what purely scientific minds have asked me. I’m just having difficulty with what looks like politics pitting everyone against each other and then wanting the police to arrest everyone who disagrees. We are not stormtroopers. We are peacekeepers. All these years, you have told us that you want law enforcement that thinks before arresting, doesn’t violate your rights and treats their citizens with decency. Now you have that and are asking us to regress into what you didn’t want and didn’t deserve. Please let us be the law enforcement you always asked us to be. Non oppressive. We are dealing with a serious rise in crime, new challenges in our correctional facility and a massive upsurge in our courthouse when everything opens back up. We will rise to the challenge. This is not the time to introduce fear into our society by threatening class A misdemeanors,but instead it’s a time to assist our citizens and businesses to get back on their feet. I feel DuPage County is ready to re-open responsibly before everything is gone and I will not victimize lawful residents of DuPage County trying to put food on their children’s table. I’m so proud of our DuPage citizens who have done everything right from the beginning. All I can say is thank you.

Elsewhere in the state, growing numbers of Illinois residents are coming out in opposition to Gov. Pritzker’s (D) lockdown policies which were found by WalletHub to be the harshest in the country – including a provision which would jail business owners for up to a year for refusing to obey.

Pritzker’s restrictions are so – restrictive, that DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick announced that he has no intention of enforcing them, according to the report.

Joining Mendrick is Kendall County Sheriff Dwight Baird, who similarly said he has no intention of enforcing Pritzker’s order to break up gatherings or shut down businesses since “the Governor’s Executive Order is not a law.”

The city of Gibson in Central Illinois also won’t be enforcing the restrictions – announcing that they will not make misdemeanor arrests of individuals or business owners for violating the EO.

In addition, downstate Madison County reopened its businesses despite the orders.

In reply to these officials, Gov. Pritzker warned he would send the state police in to enforce his rules.

Counties that try to reopen in defiance, may not be reimbursed by FEMA for damages they cause because they ignored the law,” Pritzker said adding, “Local law enforcement and the Illinois State Police can and will take action.”

Individual business owners have also defied the governor’s threats.

A gym owner in Moline, a city on the border with Iowa, straight west of Chicago, reopened his business on Monday in direct defiance of Pritzker’s orders.

Madison County Board Chairman Kurt Prenzler helped usher through a resolution that “basically declared all businesses and churches essential.”

“I did the Zoom classes for a while. Rented out all my equipment and, you know, you reach a point where enough is enough, and somebody’s got to say something,” said Chris Ninotta, owner of Omni Strength. “I can’t do it any longer. I’m a single father, and that’s where my loyalty lies, and there’s no man or government on earth that’s gonna tell me I gotta, you know, do this.” –Breitbart

In short, you can only push people so far – even in liberal Illinois.

The accumulating death toll from Covid-19 can be seen minute-by-minute on cable news channels. But there’s another death toll few seem to care much about: the number of poverty-related deaths being set in motion by deliberately plunging millions of Americans into poverty and despair.

    While not downplaying the seriousness of a pandemic, so far the Covid-19 pandemic is dramatically smaller than previous pandemics yet resulting in draconian measures never seen before.
    Countries are closing their borders, restricting travel, locking down cities, introducing social distancing rules, driving millions into unemployment, and taking actions that are inflicting a financial crisis like we’ve never seen before.
    This whole coronavirus scare may be, in effect, a beta-test of governments’ ability to control its economies and citizens and to gauge the adaptive capacities (how compliant citizens are to government mandates).
