Whitmer Extends Lockdown, Husband Can’t Get Boat Put in N. Michigan Water for Memorial Day Because of Back-up Caused by Pandemic


You have to love the irony when Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s husband is refused getting his boat put in the water for a Memorial Day outing because a small business owner, who was forced to close down during the Pandemic, was booked solid and refused to move “Whitler’s” husband to the front of the line.

FoxNews.com reports that

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer faced backlash from Republican lawmakers after a reported request from her husband to get the family’s boat out on the water before Memorial Day weekend — far from their home in Lansing.

Whitmer, a Democrat, famously has imposed one of the strictest lockdowns in the country, sparking frequent protests. What’s more, she’s told people not living in Northern Michigan to stay away from vacation spots there during the holiday weekend.

In Facebook posts no longer visible to the public, NorthShore Dock LLC and its owner, Tad Dowker, focused on what Dowker said was a request last week by Whitmer’s husband, Marc Mallory. The posts caught the attention of Republican state lawmakers, who said the governor’s family may not have wanted to follow the guidance she’s issued for the rest of the state.

“This morning, I was out working when the office called me, there was a gentleman on hold who wanted his boat in the water before the weekend,” Dowker posted. “Being Memorial weekend and the fact that we started working three weeks late means there is no chance this is going to happen.”

He continued, “Our office personnel had explained this to the man and he replied, ‘I am the husband to the governor, will this make a difference?'” The docking company later noted that Mallory respectfully accepted that the accommodation would not be possible.

Whitmer spokeswoman Tiffany Brown refused to comment on the matter, saying the administration wouldn’t address “every rumor that is spread online,” The Detroit News reported.

Last Monday, Whitmer announced restrictions would be lifted in some regions of Northern Michigan, but urged those who didn’t live in the region to stay away. “If you don’t live in these regions… think long and hard before you take a trip into them,” she said. “A small spike could put the hospital system in dire straits pretty quickly. That’s precisely why we’re asking everyone to continue doing their part. Don’t descend on [waterfront] Traverse City from all regions of the state.”

The vacation property Whitmer and her husband have owned is about 25 minutes from Traverse City, according to The Detroit News, but the family permanently resides in Lansing, over 150 miles away.

State Sen. Tom Barrett, R-Charlotte, said Whitmer had urged Michigan residents not to “descend” on the city. “Yet, what did her family try and do?” Barrett said.

“In the Army, we have a tradition that the leaders get in line for chow last behind everyone else in the unit,” he continued. “Here is the leader of our state. … Her family is trying to cut people in line.”

After rising to fame over her stringent coronavirus policy, Whitmer confirmed last week she had been in talks with the Biden campaign about a potential vice presidential candidate pick.

The governor attracted the attention of President Trump when she criticized the federal government’s response to the pandemic.

“I love Michigan, one of the reasons we are doing such a GREAT job for them during this horrible Pandemic. Yet your Governor, Gretchen ‘Half’ Whitmer is way in over her head, she doesn’t have a clue. Likes blaming everyone for her own ineptitude!” he tweeted after her comments.

Gov. Gretchen “Whitler” Whitmer is definitely the “Pin-Up Girl” for Liberal Democrat out-of-control authoritarianism and hypocrisy.

I was going to call this situation “unbelievable” but, actually it’s not.

Modern American Liberals have been both the biggest fascists and the most hypocritical political authorities since the days of Former President jimmy Carter.

Gov. “Whitler”, however, has given new meaning to the phrase “power-mad Liberal politician”.

Last Friday, she extended her state’s lockdown until June 12th.

In recent days, she has “loosened” a stay-at-home order, in place since March, to allow for social gatherings of 10 people or less while allowing retail businesses to reopen for appointment-only shopping.

While many states have begun to reopen their economies, with some easing their lockdown orders or lifting entirely, Gov. Whitmer extended her lockdown in order to build her political gravitas in an attempt to become Joe Biden’s Presidential Running Mate.

In a tweet, Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox criticized the timing of the extension.

“Not only is Gretchen Whitmer going around the state Legislature with her stay-at-home orders, but now she is sneaking around the people of Michigan by announcing an extension to her stay at home order after regular business hours on a holiday weekend,” Cox tweeted. “The only thing she is trying to keep safe is her political career.”

Unfortunately, Gov. Whitmer is merely one in a line-up of several Democratic Governors who are doing everything they can to keeping the reopening of America from progressing…not because of their concern for the American citizens who they are governing but because the Democratic Elite on Capitol Hill are pulling their strings and dangling the carrot of a lucrative political future in front of them.

At this point in the life of our Sovereign Nation, these lockdowns are strictly being used as a political tool by which to somehow keep President Trump from being reelected.

If Gov. Whitmer’s husband was not afraid to go boating this weekend, why should ay other American living in Michigan, or any other Blue State still be denied their freedom?

Gov. Whitmer Extends Michigan’s Stay at Home Order to 5/28 After Hundreds of Protesters Storm State Capitol Building


It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed. – Vladimir Lenin

FoxNews.com reports that

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Thursday extended Michigan’s state of emergency and disaster declaration through May 28, hours before it was set to expire and after hundreds of protesters, some of whom were armed, gathered in the state Capitol building to voice their displeasure with the Democratic governor.

Whitmer also took shots at the Republican-controlled legislature for refusing to extend the order earlier in the day.

“By refusing to extend the emergency and disaster declaration, Republican lawmakers are putting their heads in the sand and putting more lives and livelihoods at risk,” she said in a statement. “I’m not going to let that happen.”

The emergency declaration gives Whitmer additional powers to issue executive orders during an emergency. She claimed she had the emergency authority regardless of what state lawmakers did.

In a rejection of the governor, the state House and Senate adopted resolutions Thursday to legally challenge her authority and also approved a bill to allow some of her mandates but not her stay-at-home order, which expires May 16.

No lawsuit had been filed as of Thursday night, MLive reported.

Whitmer said she planned to veto the bill and won’t sign any bills that “that constrain her ability to protect the people of Michigan from this deadly virus in a timely manner,” her office said, according to The Detroit News.

Earlier in the day, hundreds of demonstrators, some armed with rifles, descended on the state Capitol building in Lansing to voice frustration over the stay-at-home order, which mandates temporary business closures and that residents remain home.

Many made it inside the building and stood shoulder-to-shoulder, calling for a return to normal daily life. Opponents accuse Whitmer of overstepping her authority by prohibiting sales of items like garden supplies and banning most travel between homes and certain activities.

An earlier rally on April 15 called “Operation Gridlock” drew thousands outside the Capitol building, in addition to another gathering outside Whitmer’s home. Similar demonstrations have occurred nationwide as many Americans remain concerned about their livelihoods.

The Michigan Court of Claims sided with the governor Wednesday, denying a motion for a preliminary injunction to the order. The court ruled that the stay-at-home order doesn’t violate residents’ constitutional rights.

Michigan recorded 41,379 COVID-19 cases as of Thursday, including 119 deaths, according to the state website.

In her declaration announcement, Whitmer said scientific data shows the state is not ready to resume normal operations.

“It defies common sense and science,” she said during a virtual town hall Thursday night. “We are still in a state of emergency. We have to take this seriously. If we are smart, we can start to reengage safely.”

The article above is a microcosm of the choice that faces Americans.

We, as free Americans, must decide for ourselves whether or not to live in fear, relying on a Nanny-State All-controlling central government, along the lines of the U.S.S.R. in its glory days.

I do not believe that President Trump wants Americans to live in self-isolation forever.

That is why he allowed the Federal Rules for Social Distancing to expire.

I also believe that he is not a fan of state governors, like Whitmer, who have used the Chinese Coronavirus as an opportunity to place their citizens under their thumb, acting punitively when their “subjects” object to their totalitarianism.

Yes, the health of Americans is a concern, it will always be a concern.

However, the same rules for personal hygiene which Americans have been using for yeas still apply.

Wash your hands, cover your mouth when you cough, be careful that you do not sneeze on anyone, and use common sense.

In other words, act like an American, instead of a panicked sheep hoarding toilet paper at the neighborhood Walmart.

God has given us all the ability to make our own decisions.

Each one of us must choose what is right for us and our families.

If you wish to continue to isolate yourself while other Americans “reopen America”, it’s a free country…go ahead.

However, one of our Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin once said,

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

As an essential worker (by the Grace of God) who has watched his fellow Americans so willingly give up their liberty…I will have to say that Ol’ Ben was spot on.

It is definitely time to reopen America for business.

And, petty little tyrants like Gov. Whitmer will just have to get over themselves.

Trump Trolls Dems with “Liberate” Tweets and Dem Governors Start Moving Toward Reopening States


Stop and think about it. You’re part of an economic rebirth, a roaring economic period of three years. Record number of jobs. Wages are on the way up.New careers are being created and sought by the week, by the day. The economic opportunity in America is bursting. It was only three, five, seven years ago the American people were told not to expect this kind of thing anymore because the world economy had changed so that, “Eh, better get used to an America in decline rather than an America where high expectations dictate.”

And along comes Donald Trump blows that away. And then one day after three years of being part of this economic rebirth — if you wanted to be, if you wanted to be out there working and advancing your career. Then one day, for apparently valid reasons, we are told, “You can’t go to work today. Your business is not allowed to open today.

“Your recreational opportunities are taken away from you. You’re not allowed to leave your house for any reason, under penalty of who knows what,” and we’re into what, week five? How long has this shutdown been going on? Week five, week six, whatever it is — and it’s the most abnormal state for normal people to be involved in.

It was unsustainable. It can’t go on. It could not go on. And the first chance that people had to follow, they would do it. They just needed a little leadership on the reopen side. Just need a little leadership — leadership and a plan, a plan of how we’re gonna do it. Try to maintain as much safety as possible, dip our toes in the water.

All it took was somebody making the first move, and then here come a bunch of people willing to follow, and then more people willing to lead. So this is going to feed off of itself. – Rush Limbaugh, 4/17/20

In a related story, FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump sparked uproar on Twitter Friday with a series of tweets encouraging followers to “liberate” amid a growing movement of protests across the country to demand governors reopen “non-essential businesses” and send people back to work.

The three states Trump tweeted about — Virginia, Michigan and Minnesota — are run by Democratic governors and critics have responded by calling to “liberate America” from the president.

The protests — mainly led by conservative supporters of Trump – are a controversial part of a growing effort to turn around an economy that has been hurt in recent weeks because of the pandemic.

A small group of protesters gathered in Virginia’s Capitol Square in Richmond on Thursday to voice their displeasure with the state’s move to extend the state’s lockdown orders. Larger protests have occurred in Michigan and an event was scheduled for Friday in Minnesota – and the president has apparently taken notice and took to Twitter to express support.

On Wednesday, hundreds of cars, trucks and SUVs descended on Michigan’s state capital for “Operation Gridlock” as part of a noisy protest against Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s social-distancing restrictions that critics say have gone too far.

“Minnesota citizens now is the time to demand Governor Walz and our state legislators end this lock down!” the description of a Facebook event titled “Liberate Minnesota” scheduled for noon on Friday reads. “Minnesota’s economy must be reopened for business or destroying the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of Minnesota citizens and their families may result if we don’t act quickly!”

Trump’s tweet caused the word “liberate” to quickly become a top trend on social media, with people from both sides of the political spectrum chiming in — but outspoken liberals were particularly vocal.

Later yesterday, per FoxNews.com

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz eased some restrictions on outdoor recreation due to the COVID-19 shutdown Friday – the same day protesters rallied outside his residence demanding an end to stay-at-home orders.

Bait shops, outdoor shooting ranges, game farms, public and private parks and trails, golf courses, driving ranges and marina services can reopen Saturday morning under the new executive order.

Campgrounds and retail stores that sell equipment for outdoor activities must remain closed along with charter boats and recreational equipment rentals.

“It’s important for us to stay active and enjoy the outdoors while preventing the spread of COVID-19,” Walz said in a press release. “This measure will allow Minnesotans to take advantage of more opportunities to get outside, while still doing their part to keep their neighbors healthy.”

The governor is urging people who do go outside for recreation do so near their homes, especially in rural communities where hospitals have fewer resources and ventilators.

And he said residents should continue to maintain social distancing guidelines and avoid crowded areas to minimize the spread of the coronavirus.

Despite those guidelines, hundreds of people gathered in St. Paul demanding an end to the stay-at-home orders to “Liberate Minnesota” outside Walz’s official residence Friday, according to local news reports.

At least 400 protesters honked horns, waved American flags and donned Trump 2020 gear. Outside in the sun, the protestors held signs reading “Stop the Shutdown,” “We do not consent” and “Walz is the virus,” according to reports from KMSP-TV/FOX 9 Minneapolis-St. Paul.

Images from the protests show demonstrators ignoring COVID-19 precautions like face masks while waving Trump flags and wearing “Make America Great Again” hats.

Also yesterday, news came that Michigan’s Governor Whitler…err…Whitmer was going to begin reopening Michigan’s Economy on May 1.

So, did President Trunp’s “Liberate” tweets put pressure of the Democratic Governors that he aimed them at?

Does Nancy Pelosi have way too much ice cream?

President Trump has always been a master of using Twitter to reach out directly to the American people to get his point across unfiltered by the biased Main Stream Media.

He also takes delight in “trolling” the Main Stream Media and their masters, the Democratic Party, through its use.

In this instance, as he tries to restore America’s Economy as we seem to be coming out from under the Chinese Coronavirus, or COVID-19 for the politically correct, it was his way of supporting average Americans attempting to regain their right of freedom to live their lives as American citizens.

It was also his way of telling those Democratic Governors whose cages he rattled that they had overstepped their bounds.

It has been very obvious for a long time to us “Deplorables”, otherwise known as average Americans living between the coasts, that if you give Modern Democrat Politicians an inch they will take a mile…and in the case of several Democratic Governors, they used the opportunity to put rules into place that had nothing to do with the Chinese Coronavirus, such as only allowing kayaks on lakes.

It’s true.

What the President did yesterday with Twitter was a modern day version of the boy who pointed out to the crowd that the Emperor had no clothes.

And, it worked.
