A barbershop owner in Owosso, Mich. is defiantly disobeying the shutdown edicts issued by Governor Gretchen Whitmer and says he will not close his store until the state forces him to do so.
77-year-old Karl Manke opened his barbershop on Monday, flouting Whitmer’s executive order forcing his store and thousands of other businesses across the state to stay closed.
“I don’t need the governor to be my mother,” Manke said. “I have one. God bless her, she’s gone now. I don’t need another mother. I can make these adult decisions myself.”
“I can … run my business how I feel I should run it,” he added. “To tell you the truth, I am scared but I didn’t really have any choice. I need to work through that fear and open up.”
Ryan Jarvi of the Attorney General’s office has made it clear that Manke is operating in violation of Whitmer’s orders and that he may be subject to fines or criminal sanctions because of his unwillingness to submit.
“Violations should still be directed to law enforcement agencies overseeing the jurisdiction in which the offense occurred,” Jarvi said. “We are confident those agencies will use their discretion and authority appropriately in enforcing the Governor’s orders.”
Manke is very aware of the possible consequences but is operating in spite of what may happen to him. The devoted Christian believes that his stand is about something bigger.
“I’ll be open until Jesus walks in or until they arrest me,” Manke said.
The community is receptive to his stand, with patriots from throughout the state gathering outside of his shop to show their solidarity with the heroic business owner.
“We came out here to support him,” said Kathy Tran, who drove hours from Milford to demonstrate her support for Manke’s defiant stand. “Our main goal is to support the community and small businesses. I feel like every business should be open and they can do it safely.”
On Thursday, a mass of protesters gathered outside of his store to show their support for Manke and give him their business as Michigan residents get restless about the shutdown that keeps getting extended by their political opportunist of a governor.
Liberty-minded attorney Nicholas Somberg has offered to represent Manke for free if necessary as the patriot continues to push back against Whitmer’s executive orders.
“He’s a patriot and we need more people like him. There is a lot of people out here supporting him,” Somberg said as he livestreamed the protest on his Facebook page.
Civil disobedience is taking hold throughout the country as Americans are unwilling to accept another great depression over coronavirus panic.
As Biden Eyes “Transition Away” From Fossil Fuels, Pennsylvania is Second-Largest Natural Gas Producer in US
Destroying Pennsylvanian jobs.
Joe Biden’s announcement that he plans on a “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels as an energy source may not go over smoothly with the people of Pennsylvania- a state that has scored as the second largest producer of natural gas anywhere in the country.
Joe Biden admitted at the Thursday debate that he plans to “transition away from the oil industry,” citing pollution.

The United States Energy Information Administration identifies a considerable 20.0% of national natural gas production as coming from the state of Pennsylvania, making it the second biggest producer behind Texas. The state punches well above its weight in doing so, producing almost as much natural gas as Texas despite having less than half of its population.
Biden has sought to dismiss his track record of support for the banning of fracking oil extraction, employing a similar thinly veiled rhetorical trick by stating he’d only decline to allow any new fracking.
The energy industry continues to be a source of gainful, family-supporting employment for over ten million Americans. It’s not an option to “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels in the immediate future- a fact Biden tacitly admitted to after the debate suggestion, perhaps indicating that he realized the political folly of the statement.
Biden also said he’s talking about “getting rid of the subsidies for fossil fuels. But we’re not going to get rid of fossil fuels for a long time.”

A study from the American Petroleum Industry indicates that more than 322,000 Pennsylvanians are employed by the natural gas industry that Biden wants to transition away from.
Pennsylvania is shaping up as the most critical swing state in the election, and in nearly every plausible election night scenario the winner of the state’s 20 electoral votes secures the 270 needed to win the election.
Perhaps Joe Biden should transition away from national politics, and leave policy answers relating to carbon emissions, the environment and a strong energy industry to those more considerate of the role of the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania and around the country.
