A Democrat Sheriff in Michigan has now been forced to back down after attempting to defy Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s draconian lockdown order. As The Daily Wire reports:

A Democratic sheriff in Michigan said his officers would not penalize residents and business owners for violating Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s lockdown order but walked back his statements soon after.

Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson was the latest local law enforcement head to buck Whitmer’s mandate, saying he was not “writing tickets” for lockdown violations. A day later, though, he offered a confusing explanation of his stance while walking back his commitment not to enforce the governor’s heavy-handed actions.

Swanson appeared on “No Bullshit Hour,” a popular Michigan radio show, on Friday and told host Charlie LeDuff that the sheriff’s office has not and does not plan to enforce Whitmer’s coronavirus lockdown orders.

“You know people have to talk about the Constitution in its entirety, and that’s the separation of powers, and the sheriff is the executive branch of that separation. We enforce laws with discretion,” Swanson began. He added that the courts should decide whether a law is constitutional or not.

It appears that Whitmer will go to any length to impose her radical agenda, has it now reached the point where she is willing to intimidate other elected officials?

    1. Gretchen “The Michigan Witch” Witchmer is a disgrace. She’s desperate to land the VP job under Biden and her audition includes using **** Gestapo tactics to please the left wing of the Democratic Party!! If she gets the VP nod, she’d be one heart beat away from becoming President! Think about that chilling prospect when your head hits the pillow tonight!

      1. A better question. When is an EXECUTIVE ORDER that does not come from a congress, somehow a LAW???? Gretchen cannot make laws. She can, however, claim that as a DICTATOR, anything she says is law.
        I think she is bucking for Biden’s VP. God help us. Biden is old and will probably croak. That would leave us with a brain deficit female who believes she can DICTATE.

  2. The sheriff needs help, he’s apparently been threatened, that’s the only way Whitmer can keep her gestapo government going – honestly, just where is The FBI and DOJ anyway?

    1. I am more concerned about the amount of Americans that refer to these Communist tyrants, as anything but Communists, which is the opposite of anything German Nationalists, SS, Gestapo, or Der Führer. Whereas the 3rd Reich were fanatical Nationalists, Communists rather seek the destruction & deconstruction
      of every nation they rule. Americans loved Hitler, before they were conned into hating him. Same thing happened to Nixon, South Africa, and now Trump. The deep state and the media, have for a long time, been working together to smear anything & anyone, they seem as a threat to their wealth & power. Hitler was TIME Magazine Man Of The Year 1938, and one other time, beloved by the world, for his socisl & economical accomplishments during & after the great depression. His National Socialism would’ve put the world banking system at a great disadvantage. They murdered Germany.

  3. I don’t understand why the federal government not intervene in these abusive cases.

  4. The citizens need to bring a recall on this lady for she does not have the authority to take away the citizens rights, also the citizens have every right to sue the the governor and the state!!!

    1. you yankees are seeing what we down South seceded from….abuse, threats, theft. You helped make this bed, go lie in it !

  5. well I do not know how it is done in Michigan but here the sheriff is elected and the Gov. can temp. suspend him but it is up to congress to fire him and if they do he can turn around and run in the next election

  6. Well folks if you like this kind of government that takes away your freedoms and abuses their power keep voting democratic. At the rate they are going soon Russia will look like the land of the free.

      1. What is your obsession with “Yankees”? Are you Rip Van Winkle and have been asleep for the past 150 years? The Civil War is over, man. How about trying to be relevant instead of throwing around ancient references to Americans in the 1860s? Can you come into the present instead of blaming all your woes on the “Da** Yankees”? Cause you’re just making yourself look silly and out of touch.

  7. This women is a Polisi ***** made over. When are the people going to wake up to democrats. Those bastards think they are above the law because the ball less republicans have let them get away with breaking every law on the books. Now we have an attorney General that has sold out.

  8. This has got to stop. These politicians are loving the power they think they have because of the virus. They want to take away every right the American people have and dictate to them what they can do or not do. They have forgotten that they are supposed to be working for the people, not the other way around. People are hurting here in this country. They shouldn’t be. It’s bad enough that they have the virus to deal with, but these politicians are not helping, they are only making it worse. Something has got to be done, either by the people or whoever has the authority to stop this bull. They are killing this country. I didn’t spend 4 years in the Air Force during the Korean War to have my rights taking away from me because of some hungry power hungry politician.

  9. In the military there is an understanding which says a soldier not only has a right to disobey an illegal command, they have a responsibility to do so. I will accept any contradictions to this.

    1. Yes Sir, the UCMJ is very specific in that! Too bad these dictatorial govenors can’t be charged with crimes by the same law enforcement agencies in their states! That would be poetic justice!

    2. Meanwhile, back in Civilian Life:

      18 U.S. Code § 242.Deprivation of rights under color of law
      U.S. Code

      Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

      Basically, ANY law enforcement office that attempts, or does VIOLATE THE RIGHTS of any Citizen is COMMITTING A FELONY.

  10. Does Michigan law provide for the impeachment/removal from office of elected officials? If it does, the electorates displeasure with their governor can be clearly expressed.

  11. Sheriffs cannot be forced. They’re elected and consequently are deemed executives of the county, outside any authority except the voters themselves. If he can summon sufficient courage, this sheriff might wish to reconsider his party loyalties.

    1. What he should do is march up to the governors office and ARREST HER for ABUSE OF POWER, MALFEASANCE OF OFFICE, VIOLATING HER OATH OF OFFICE and a few dozen other obscure Laws.
      Toss her into one of his jail cells and let the courts determine the details.

      1. Exactly, he can arrest her and I don`t understand why more sheriffs aren´t doing just that.

  12. He said he would have his people enforce this crap now , but WILL he, really?? Even cops cant see everything that is going on all of the time. (wink, wink) As for the snitches, finks and informers who are calling in complaints, I have heard that in some cases around the country their names have been made public. Something for KGB wannabees to think about.

  13. I would really like to know what LAW allows these tin-pot governors to rule their states by fiat. Can anyone that is knowledgeable help me out on this? If these tyrants can just make up “pronouncements” and then enforce them as if they were real laws, we are doomed. DOOMED I say!

  14. “It appears that Whitmer will go to any length to impose her radical agenda, has it now reached the point where she is willing to intimidate other elected officials?”

    Of course she will, she’s a card carrying communist. She just needs to plasticize it.

  15. I don’t know what the Michigan constitution says, but most states the Sheriff is a constitutional Officer and chief law enforcement officer in his County. Therefore the Governor has no power over him unless he violates a law. In other words he’s in charge of his County.

  16. The voters of michigan should re-call that horses ass ! Alot of democrat governors are over reacting. The main stream media has been painting the President as authoritarian and a ” Dictator ” , yet it is not he acting that way but the democrats , not all but most . Gov. Cuomo in the past has used his office as a club ,like when he passed his “safe?” act over the protests of all of his Sheriffs , Yet in this pandemic he has been remarkably restrained compared to his cronies. In NY some counties began reopening last friday.

  17. She needs to be spending more time and effort on the two Dams that failed and helping those fleeing the area and their homes!
