Gov. Mike DeWine reissuing statewide mask order with new sanctions, says he may close restaurants, bars and gyms – cleveland.com

The following are the provisions, DeWine said:

1. Each retail business will be required to post a face covering requirement sign at all public entrances to the store;

2. Each store will be responsible for ensuring that customers and employees are wearing masks; and

3. A new Retail Compliance Unit, composed of agents led by the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, will inspect businesses to ensure compliance. A first violation of this order will bring about a written warning and a second violation will bring about closure of the store for up to 24 hours.

“We know that masks work,” DeWine said. “They are the easiest, most cost-effective way to limit the spread of COVID-19.” He argued that workers and shoppers have the right to be safe.

Arizona’s GOP AG says people voted Republican, but not for Trump | TheHill

Brnovich dismissed the lawsuit as inconsequential saying, “We are literally talking about less than 200 votes that are in question and doubt. So the reality is, even if it was possible that those votes flipped, those 200 votes, I do not think it will make a difference in Arizona just because of the numbers.”

Brnovich ended his interview by making the observation that if there was indeed a conspiracy, it failed in securing other elected seats for the Democratic Party.

“The county election official who was Democrat lost and other Republicans won. What really happened, it came down to people split their ticket. People vote for Republicans down ballot, but they didn’t vote for President Trump.”

Proud Boys leader trying to rebrand the group as explicitly antisemitic – The Jerusalem Post

Kyle Chapman, the founder of a “tactical defense arm” of the Proud Boys known for engaging in street violence, claimed in a message on the encrypted chat app Telegram that he has staged a “coup” against the current leader of the Proud Boys — a Black man named Enrique Tarrio.
“We will confront the Zionist criminals who wish to destroy our civilization,” Chapman wrote after using other bigoted language. “We recognize that the West was built by the White Race alone and we owe nothing to any other race.”
Chapman also wrote that he has renamed the group the Proud Goys, referring to the Jewish term for non-Jews that neo-Nazis have tried to appropriate and use to symbolize their antisemitism.
The move comes as the Proud Boys are preparing to protest with other right-wing groups in Washington, DC, on behalf of Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that the presidential election was stolen from him through widespread voter fraud.
