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.

AMERICA FIRST: President Trump Fires Tennessee Valley Authority Chairman After Drive to Fire American Workers, Replace With H-1B’s

America First!

President Donald Trump announced his intention to fire the CEO of the Tennessee Valley Authority on Monday, citing the federally owned company’s recent track record of firing its American workers and seeking to replace them with cheaper, outsourced H-1B visa workers.

The President confirmed that he would secure the resignation of TVA CEO Skip Thompson, either through the federal company’s board, or through his own authority. The TVA is the nation’s largest federally owned corporation, created in Great Depression to provide electrical and public works services to a large region of Appalachia and the American South. TVA’s recent firing of 200 American workers had represented a stark departure from its original mission of providing gainful and useful employment opportunities in what remains one of the poorer regions of the country.

Thompson had raked in a salary of $8,000,000 dollars a year as the TVA enacted a firing campaign of its own workers, setting off alarms about executive greed within the publicly chartered company’s leadership.

The President made the announcement following a meeting with US Tech Workers, a pro-American worker organization that has been publicizing rampant greed and corrupt hiring practices in corporate America and the technology industry. Tech Workers recently highlighted the TVA’s replacement of its skilled American workforce with H-1B subcontractors, who provide cheaper labor at the cost of a reduced skill set and poorer services.

At the meeting with US Tech Workers, President Trump also signed an executive order punishing greedy outsourcing practices on the part of companies that receive taxpayer dollars through federal contracts. The new executive order entails oversight over federal contractors by the Department of Labor, which will audit companies for illegal H-1B replacement of American workers.

The TVA caved to the federal pressure immediately, making an announcement that the company would be reversing its recent firing of 200 American workers in favor of H1B replacements shortly after the President addressed the issue.
