Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) issued new executive orders last night to extend Michigan’s state of emergency after the Republican-controlled legislature voted to sue her for unauthorized use of power.

Whitmer’s orders extended her stay-at-home orders until at least May 15.


The Daily Wire’s Eric Quintanar reports:

The governor asserted in a statement that the executive orders come from “independent sources of statutory authority.” Whitmer also refers to the coronavirus as “an enemy that has taken the lives of more Michiganders than we lost during the Vietnam War,” and later accuses Republican lawmakers of “putting their heads in the sand and putting more lives and livelihoods at risk.”

“We’re all in this together,” said Whitmer. “Defeating COVID-19 is an all hands on deck moment for our state, and I remain hopeful that Republicans in the legislature will stop the partisan games and start working with me to re-engage our economy safely and responsibly.”

Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield (R-MI) told the Detroit Free Press that the legislature was willing to work with Whitmer on some of the measures she wanted, excluding a statewide stay-at-home order, but that the governor declined to do so.

“We’re all in this together and we should all work together. We believe upholding the democratic process is best,” tweeted the speaker, who writes that “she just said no.”

Well, your vote isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.
In case you haven’t been paying attention, the demoloons do what they want, not what you want.
Most probably get elected by fraudulent means – what other explanation could there be?
So when the purge comes, be prepared to take your community back, your country neck from the nonsensical demoloons.

It will depend on how many BROWN SHIRTS you have working in Law Enforcement.
I have seen enough of the LEOs in Virginia and Tennessee to say that you had better be ready to fight and die. Those guys are fanatic gestapo types who firmly believe their word is law.

She is a DEmocrat. She wants to take down the economy so Trump will lose in November. But she is not the first dictator. We have Clay Jenkins as county commissioner in Dallas County. He does not bother even telling the other commissioners what he is doing. He just makes decrees. And he is still doing it. Oh, and yes, he refuses to talk to the governor of the state since Abbott is a Republican.
Take a look at him. Typical leftist Democrat.

Sounds like “emperor cuomo” here in COMMUNIST-RUN N.Y.
UNCONSTITUTIONAL “royal decrees” (usually done in the dead of night) to keep the citizens CONTROLLED.
Anyone hoping to get him to run for POTUS should;d stay as fay away from this corrupt dictator as possible. Or expect to be turned into “subjects of the crown” if ANY democommunists get power.

She thinks she can win. So let’s see if the Republicans actually grow a set and DO sue her. Expedite the suit so it can go before a judge now.

When I read the headlines, i immediately thought this article was about gavin gruesome nuisance. The head ass wipe doing his damnedest to destroy California with his total shutdown order, in effect since March 16th. This thieving and lying socialistic idiot does nothing but flaps his gums trying to make himself look important yet fails miserably. it’s obvious this clown doesn’t have a plan in place to reopen things with safety in order so he just goes on and on and gives his BULLS**T updates daily without saying anything important. Just who in their right mind elected this bastard in the first place? Pretty much the same can be said of the governor of Michigan.

I think it’s time we start just ignoring these leftist politicians.
While it’s established law that governors, and even local mayors, have the power to quarrantine sick people they have NEVER had the power to do the same to healthy people. Their FEAR is not adaquate grounds to deprive citizens of their constitutional rights.
If they want to quarrentine people, make them PROVE their accusations.

Compare apples to apples please. Michigan lost 2649 persons in the Vietnam war. So, I hate to admit it, but Whitmer is technically correct in that we have lost more in our state to the coronavirus than we lost in Vietnam. Having said that, it’s irrelevant how many died by virtue of coronavirus vs. Vietnam. So what?

Let’s go to the Civil War. Michigan lost 13,000 in that war. MUCH more than we have lost to the coronavirus. So what?

It is ridiculous to compare losses to a virus to losses in a war. Why not to auto accidents or drownings? Apples to apples. How about comparing COVID-19 losses to run-of-the-mill flu viruses over the last five years? Or to the Swine flu, Mers, or SARS?

Using war losses is just a way for the left to sensationalize the situation. create fear, and subliminally link COVID-19 losses to the president, just as Vietnam war losses were linked to the president at that time. At least during war the president, as commander-in-chief, actually is responsible, ultimately, for losses. Not so for a world-wide pandemic.

Break down the damn door where she works and remove her sorry excuse of a human. If people in that state can’t work and get paid neither should she. She is acting more of an idiot and playing politcs with people’s lives instead of being a leader. She must be a good puppet to be this bold, someone is watching her back

Whitmer numbers and all numbers are terribly inflated. All deaths are counted as Covid-19 deaths.
Heart attack. Covid
Car accident. Covid
Seasonal Flu. Covid
More money is made from Govt.

This is a MAJOR problem with all these so called “statistics”. IF someone dies from an auto crash but has one molecule of Covid on their lips, then the death is obviously a Covid death. Just add it in. Why?? Because the hospitals get more money that way. The death figures are BOGUS. The fake death figures help to raise fear in the populace, which is what the dems and the RINOs want. More fear means more control. Don’t fall for it.

I saw that lie too. I was thinking what the hell? But then remember they tell this crap to people who don’t know any better and would never dream of fact checking or ever looking anything up. There was a headline the other day claiming that the U.S. has a 12% COVID-19 mortality rate. Anyone with a minimal math education and some quick calculating would realize that with an over 300,000,000 U.S. population – 10% would mean over 30,000,000 people have died.

Although I totally support the cause and agree with all of us that she should reopen her state I just wanted to clear up your talking point so your correct. She didn’t say more then Vietnam altogether, she said more then MI specifically lost in Vietnam. No doubt she’s a moron, but I want your talking points to be correct

I find it interesting that the Democrats have said for so long that the first dictator in our country would be a Republican, specifically Trump, and yet here it is someone from their own camp who is the first dictator. Hmmm, gee, imagine that! No one could have predicted that, now could they? (Heavy Sarcasm)

Whitmer needs to be removed from power by any legal means at the disposal of the legislature and the constituents they represent. She does no good for herself, her party, or her state. She needs to go away and have her foolish, immature, far-left ideas removed from public view forever more.
