The Michigan Supreme Court ruled that her unilateral executive orders were illegal, so she transferred all the orders to the State Health Department. The head of the Health Department resigned (IMHO - because he realized this was probably also illegal), so Whitmer appointed another lackey to do Whitmer's bidding.

The more intense their efforts get to "help us" - the more frightened you should be of what their "vaccine" actually does....especially in a year or two.

What a brilliant way to bring about unity. Let's set the percentage of the population that decided to get the experimental shot against those who don't trust the government any time for any reason. This witch needs to run for president.

Remember: Covid vaccines are not approved by the FDA. Covid vaccines have an "emergency use authorization" (EUA). That means the covid vaccines are medical experiments. Masks and covid tests are also medical experiments. No one can force you or your child to participate in a medical experiment. You have the right to refuse consent. Medical and religious exemptions to covid vaccines, masks and tests must be accommodated by law.

According to Whitmer's latest dictatorial pronouncement, Michigan will never fully reopen because we will most likely never reach a 70% vaccine rate. Of course, we could always hope she loses reelection in 2022 and the new governor reopens everything.

So, if their goal is 70% vaccinated. Current world population is 7.5 billion x 70% = 5.25 billion to erase. Leaves a world population of 2.25 billion, unless they get 90% compliance in the 3rd world.

Give them a badge that entitles them (I know... this is NOT a RIGHT we get from the State) to shop, eat, recreate without a mask. Simple. Got the badge. Dump the mask.

#23, I don't trust that the "vaccine" isn't designed to be some sort of a 'cleansing' in several years, perhaps when a second phase 'infection' or new 'vaccination' is provided. I am no antivaxxer. I have taken dozens of vaccinations over the years. And I have managed scientific development projects which developed animal vaccines in foreign countries, and other biotech development projects involved with antibodies, disease vectors, etc. I am not a bioscientist but I managed a bunch of them for years, and asked a lot of questions and understood the answers. I have a pretty good working knowledge of how a vaccine is made, how they work, how antibodies work, etc. And this mRNA is fundamentally technologically different than ANY OTHER 'vaccine' ever used on humans. And all previous research attempts to use this mRNA approach on lab animals ended with all the lab animals dead when challenged by disease vectors later. No thank you. In Germany and in Russia, millions were intentionally eliminated because they were politically inconvenient for leftists. Look at Cambodia, a million killed by communists in the 70s. Tell me that it cannot ever happen again. If you believe that you are pretty much a pollyanna.

Lansing — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer traveled out of state earlier this year to visit her father who is battling a chronic illness, spokesman Bobby Leddy said Monday. The acknowledgment came after spring break trips made by two members of Whitmer's administration drew criticism amid surging COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations in the state. Whitmer's trip took place more than four weeks ago, before Michigan began leading the nation in new cases per population, Leddy said. Whitmer's father has a property in West Palm Beach, Florida, according to public records. "The governor did not go on spring break, and she has not left the state in over a month," Leddy said.

The Catholic Church in America has been thrust into a new and unprecedented crisis—namely the election of Joseph Biden to the presidency. If not dealt with properly, Biden’s presidency will cause serious damage to the very truth of what it means to be Catholic.Of course, I am referring to the fact that while Biden professes the Catholic faith, he fully supports legalized abortion, same-sex “marriage” and transgenderism, and vowed that he will do all he can to advance these causes during his administration. Nonetheless, Biden’s practice of Catholicism will be on display for the whole world to observe—as he attends Mass and receives Holy Communion.

Detroit election officials are projecting 50% voter turnout in the city of Detroit, higher than in 2016, but lower than in 2012 and 2008 when Barack Obama's candidacy drew high voter participation. And the number of absentee ballots the city is expecting is now lower than officials had estimated earlier this month. Speaking Thursday to reporters in the basement of TCF Center in downtown Detroit, Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey and other election officials said they are working to prepare for a historic election in Michigan — a swing state that many will be closely watching next week.

Detroit – When Democrats lost the presidency to Donald Trump four years ago, their biggest vote drop-offs were centered on a trio of Midwestern Rust Belt cities with large Black populations – Detroit, Milwaukee and Cleveland. This year, all three anchor battleground states that Democratic nominee Joe Biden hopes to reclaim for his party, and recent polls show him in the lead. But in 2016, Democrat Hillary Clinton led some of the same October polls in Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio only to lose them all, thanks largely to blue-collar white voters turning to Trump and some African Americans turning away from the election altogether.  Correction*

The Michigan Supreme Court issued a split decision late Friday that ruled against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in a battle over her power to extend emergency declarations used to mandate COVID-19 restrictions. The court's decision throws in to question orders issued by Whitmer related to the coronavirus pandemic. In a 4-3 ruling, the court determined the governor did not have the authority under state law to issue any additional emergency declarations pertaining to the pandemic after April 30. That was the last date when the legislature allowed the governor to declare an emergency.

U.S. resistance to getting a COVID-19 vaccine is slowly diminishing, a new online survey finds, but it still exists and at especially high rates in some blue-collar jobs -- and nearly half of respondents are worried about side effects. For adults under age 65 who are hesitant, reluctance is mainly driven by concerns about safety, side effects and distrust in government, the poll found. It's also largely linked to people's line of work. The bottom line: "Vaccine hesitancy is emerging as a key barrier to ending the COVID-19 pandemic," said lead author Wendy King, associate professor of epidemiology in the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health.

He now faces four years in prison and a whopping fine for the damages to the police station -- a penalty Robinson’s lawyer argues he will never be able to pay.

The Transportation Security Administration announced Friday it will extend a federal mandate that requires people to wear masks in transportation settings, including at airports, on commercial aircraft and on commuter bus and rail systems, through Sept. 13. The initial requirement went into effect Feb. 1 and was set to expire May 11. “The federal mask requirement throughout the transportation system seeks to minimize the spread of COVID-19 on public transportation,” Darby LaJoye, the senior official performing the duties of the TSA administrator, said in a statement. “About half of all adults have at least one vaccination shot and masks remain an important tool in defeating this pandemic.”
