Detroit Democrats plan to vote Saturday to censure and bar any future endorsements of a Democratic lawmaker who credited President Donald Trump with advocating for the drug that she said cured her of COVID-19. State Rep. Karen Whitsett, D-Detroit, broke protocol by meeting with President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence during an April 14 meeting of COVID-19 survivors, during which she credited hydroxychloroquine for saving her life.

Comments:

A good and decent woman had the nerve to speak her truth. I thought the Democrats were the party of free speech?

Man... how hateful can one be? Can you imagine the media's uproar if the republicans would have done this to a republican meeting with Obama or Clinton? And some republican's did and sometimes republican's applauded specific actions of both Obama and Clinton... why? Because, 1) we recognize something good can happen from a politician of an opposition party and 2) we are not filled with hate... that's the biggest one... hey democrat, it's alright to leave the party of hate, actually any of democrats reading this, you too can leave the party of hate!

Much like a bully, they need to show how it will be if they stray off their orchestrated narrative, for any/all who dare speak out of turn. Believe gang members also do something similar, to ensure others know the consequences if they too dare step out of line.

Co-morbid buffoon...if it were he that were dying of this scourge, he would accept any potential remedy. That is what Rep Wilson did. All she did was tell of what meds saved her life. I would extol the virtues of the life saving remedy as well! Not her fault that her remarks were well circulated and to the benefit of many who have suffered.

It is not a good idea for the leftist and liberal Democrats to harass Karen Whitsett, as there are bound to be other corona virus sufferers who have recovered and feel the same way as Whitsett, who will speak up thus biting the Democrats right on their politicized butts.

Democratic legislators have as much political freedom to stray from their paras members of the North Korean parliament. She ought to cross aisle to the side constantly fighting each other. It may be messy and frustrating herding cats, but it is the best representation of what it means to live in a free republic.

Ms. Whitsett, you might want to rethink your party. Again, they don't want you to speak your own mind. They want to control you. All they want is unfettered power and they don't care who dies.

I watched the April 14th meeting at the WH. This rep has Lyme Disease (The article just says she had an underlying condition). She repeatedly thanked the President for his understanding of Lyme Disease. He guided her to the WH doctors to see if they could help her in her recovery from Covid 19. He was very respectful of her and her husband, as well as they of him. She started out her story by saying that she didn't know that expressing thanks was a political thing. Looks like her home state proved her wrong.

The party of Don't Break Our Protocol. How dare you give any republican credit for anything good. It is against our party rules. It only matters what the people can be made to believe from the mouths of us Marxist Communist democrats and that does not include acknowledging anything positive or good from anyone other than one of our Marxist Communist democrat comrades.

So they won't censure a treasonous crook like Pelosi or Schiffty, but they will censure an honest democrat who told the truth. I hope we can all call or email her office, for she needs our support. She did good.

That is one of the major changes in Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's "stay home" order, issued Thursday, which also extends the expiration of the order to May 1. Until now, travel between two Michigan residences has been permitted.

Brit Hume: Time To Consider Lockdown
Possibly ‘A Colossal Public Policy Calamity’

Earlier this week, Fox News’ Brit Hume suggested it’s time we consider lockdown policy as possibly being “a colossal public policy calamity.” Speaking to Shannon Bream on Fox airwaves Tuesday night, Hume discussed the disastrous side effects of stay-at-home orders adopted by nearly every state in the union, highlighting the irreparable harm done to the folks’ livelihood and savings, and the social toll the isolation has caused, particularly for children, who are at extremely low risk for novel coronavirus. To boot, emphasized Hume, it’s unclear how effective lockdown policies have actually been, especially when compared to other, more sustainable mitigation strategies.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday that New York will report a $13.3 billion shortfall in revenue compared with its original forecast — representing a 14% decline in the state’s projected receipts. The Empire State, which has been hit harder by the coronavirus pandemic than anywhere else in the U.S., currently forecasts $61 billion in total lost revenue between fiscal years 2021 and 2024, Cuomo said. “What you’re going to see is what we expected,” Cuomo said at a press conference, referring to the state’s assessment of the virus’ economic impact. The projections offer a glimpse into the devastating financial toll

And right now, the coronavirus pandemic has brought tough times to literally billions of us all around the world. For a vivid illustration of both the best and worst response to the pandemic, you have to look no further than the rash of small but disturbing protests taking place intermittently around the U.S. against shelter-in-place orders that are saving lives.

Most politicians in the running to join a presidential ticket as the VP candidate are inclined to stay silent, change the subject, or simply express their humility at the thought of being considered. Stacey Abrams isn't most politicians. "I would be an excellent running mate," Abrams said in a recent interview with Elle magazine, citing her "strong history of executive and management experience," as well as her "25 years in independent study of foreign policy." As soon as it became clear that former vice president Joe Biden would be the Democratic Party's nominee for president, Abrams embarked on a media tour to make the case for why Stacey Abrams,

On Fox News Friday night, Michigan State Representative Karen Whitsett told Tucker Carlson that text messages she's been receiving from Governor Whitmer have not been pleasant ever since the Democratic state lawmaker credited President Trump for her personal recovery from the Wuhan coronavirus. The lawmaker now faces a censure from her Democratic colleagues for crediting the president for her recovery. Tucker Carlson asked Whitsett if the governor ever called the representative to simply say, "I'm so glad you didn't die?" "Actually, it was not as pleasant as that," Rep. Whitsett began, "and the text messages that we have had since then have not been as pleasant as well."

We’re all homeschoolers now. Schools have closed for more than 55 million students nationwide, and at least 34 states have shuttered schools for the rest of the academic year. Just in time, our media and academic elites are coming out swinging against homeschooling. The Washington Post and ­Salon have raised questions about the practice lately. More alarming, Harvard Magazine this week unleashed a thoroughly unfounded attack on homeschooling, drawing on the work of Harvard University law professor Elizabeth Bartholet.

The novel coronavirus pandemic will define the modern era in the same way World War II shaped an earlier generation, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates says in a 11-page memo outlining his ideas on how best to tackle the disease. “This is like a world war, except in this case, we’re all on the same side,” he writes. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $250 million to the battle and Gates has been speaking up regularly to influence its direction — something that has sometimes placed him at odds with President Donald Trump and made him a target of right-wing pundits and conspiracy theorists. Gates’ memo barely mentions politics,
