This week, President Trump will deliver his State of the Union Address, and Democrats have chosen Gretchen Whitmer, Governor of Michigan, to deliver their response.
Who is Gretchen Whitmer? Her “State of the State” address, delivered this past week, was a painful reminder to Michiganders: Gretchen Whitmer is a deeply insecure woman.
Whereas Michigan’s previous Democrat governor, Jennifer Granholm, chose to let her actions speak for themselves and set about destroying Michigan’s economy with a steely determination, Gretchen Whitmer instead blunders about, proclaiming all the while what a Strong Independent Woman she is.
She opened the night’s remarks by lecturing the audience about their presumed sexism, in a painfully awkward reminder of a fake controversy over her personal clothing last year.
This is a classic example of Whitmer’s inability to see how she telegraphs her insecurity: She considers it strength to be condescending when she began her speech by saying:
“Everyone is looking fantastic tonight. But this year I want to get one thing straight: This is not the red carpet. Focus on the substance of my speech. It’s about issues, not appearances.”
In reality, it’s so sad that she leads this solemn address by dwelling on what she wore a year ago.
As it happened, not one lawmaker last year took the bait and said a word about her dress. Whitmer had to go to a click-bait article and anonymous comments on the Internet to find the fodder to cast herself as a victim. Her condescension was not only insulting, but embarrassingly misplaced.
The rest of the speech was a mercifully short 35 minutes, as she had no accomplishments to tout, and few ideas. She stole credit for passing “historic” auto insurance legislation. Fact check: she threatened to veto it, saying “I’m done playing games,” before agreeing to sign a watered-down version of the same bill.
The theme of the speech was “do something,” a sad attempt to paint the Republicans’ rejection of her 45-cent-per-gallon gas tax hike as an obstruction.
The gas tax hike was so unpopular, not one Democrat in either chamber even introduced it.
“When it comes to tackling Michigan’s challenges, I’ve got a Plan A and a Plan B. Plan A was simple. It was in my budget last year,” she intoned, as if everyone in Michigan didn’t know “Plan A” was the gas tax hike.
“Plan B,” it turned out, was an executive order to issue billions in bonds.
These are the Democrats’ ideas on paying for things they want: taxes, and debt.
It will be a stark contrast with Trump’s State of the Union this week: President Trump, a deal-maker, just signed the USMCA, reflecting a complex series of negotiations in Congress and with multiple foreign nations.
Gretchen Whitmer is unable to work with anybody.
She was too embarrassed to even mention her major “achievement” of last year: throwing every department into a tailspin with 147 budget line-item vetoes totaling $2 billion, plus dozens of “administrative transfers” where money was unilaterally diverted away from its appropriated purpose (e.g. roads) and into another (e.g. buses.)
At the time she said: “This is not what the people want and deserve, [but] I know that there are things that (Republicans) care about in this budget that are no longer a reality. And I think it’s incumbent on everyone to get back to the table.”
Translation: “I vetoed critical programs to force Republicans to negotiate with me.”
The gambit didn’t work. Republicans passed bills to restore most of the funding, leaving some of her vetoes on the cutting-room floor, and called it a day. She signed them.
Gretchen Whitmer is the perfect Democrat to respond to President Trump’s State of the Union Address: a bitter, insecure, and isolated executive who can’t work with anybody and blames everybody else, versus Donald Trump, accomplishing landmark deals while letting nothing bother him.
This should be an exciting speech on Tuesday.
‘Protest by the Tens of Millions’: Left-Wing Coalition Demands Chaos in the Streets to Force Trump’s Ouster Following Election
A left-wing organizational front, Rise and Resist, is part of a coalition setting up mass rallies to agitate for the removal of President Donald Trump from office, regardless of the vote.
They make it clear with their rhetoric that they will not accept a win by President Trump under any circumstances. They intend to wage a campaign of terror in order to oust Trump by any means necessary.
Their big post-election event is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, Nov. 4 at 4pm. They noted that this is just “a tentative date & time” and give no location for the event, as they hope to conceal their actions from the public. They wrote on their official event page that “we are facing an unprecedented threat to the future of our democracy, and we also need to start preparing now for sustained nonviolent actions in the streets that grow over time.”
Terror groups like ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter have shown the world what the Left means when they refer to “nonviolent actions.” Rise and Resist is attempting to maintain plausible deniability as they set up their riots.
“If Trump tries to steal the election, we need to protest by the tens of millions. And we need to keep protesting until Trump concedes and leaves The White House. A contested election won’t be a legal fight. It will be a struggle of political will,” the front wrote.

Rise and Resist frequently links to Protect the Results, an organization that provides a tool kit for activists to cause mayhem following next week’s election. The organization references the Transition Integrity Project (TIP), a Soros-backed group staffed with Democrat and Never Trump operatives designed to set the stage for a color revolution coup against the president. Protect the Results seems to be the organizing arm of the coup, with TIP serving as the lawfare arm.
Protect the Results is in a coalition with tons of left-wing organizations, some with direct ties to the Democrat Party. They include Black Lives Matter, Indivisible, Bend the Arc Jewish Action, Democracy 21, Greenpeace, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, The Jewish Vote, and the Women’s March. Rise and Resist is listed among the coalition partners and serves as their boots on the ground in New York City.
Rise and Resist has posted images and video from previous rallies, which can be seen here:

Traitorous Republicans, aka Republicans hate early voting because it lessens the impact of their last minute dirty tricks. Oh well #CountEveryVote

Big League Politics has reported extensively on the infrastructure that is being put in place to rob President Trump of a second term in office:
The so-called Election Integrity Partnership is producing propaganda to protect the color revolution coup that the globalists are perpetrating against President Donald Trump in an attempt to remove him from office regardless of next month’s election.
The group published some gibberish attempting to obfuscate the truth of the establishment’s color revolution attempt with a word salad of academic drivel. They blamed talk of a color revolution on foreign powers and implied that right-wing journalists like Darren Beattie, Michelle Malkin and Jack Posobiec are working with the Russians.
“After this “mainstreaming” portion led by prominent partisan influencers, social media users who found the story appealing moved the narrative into Facebook groups and pages through shares,” the Election Integrity Partnership wrote.
They are appropriating Orwellian neologisms popularized during the COVID-19 mass hysteria, such as “superspreader,” to demonize their political opposition and set the stage for their censorship on major social media platforms.
“Some displayed “super spreader” behavior, in which an extremely active user shares content into dozens of different Groups nearly simultaneously. In this specific case, users shared links either directly related to blog or news coverage of the color revolution claims themselves, or used the phrase “color revolution” in their commentary while sharing links to stories of other incidents they seemed to believe were evidence of the claim,” they wrote…
The Election Integrity Partnership describes their organization as a “coalition of research entities focused on supporting real-time information exchange between the research community, election officials, government agencies, civil society organizations, and social media platforms.” They use nonpartisan and independent phrasing to hide their deep left-wing connections to progressive oligarch George Soros.
On their official website, the Election Integrity Partnership notes that support from the James L. Knight Foundation was influential in the launch of the organization. The Knight Foundation worked with Soros’ largest front, the Open Society Foundations, to support a project that served as the forerunner for the Black Lives Matter terror movement. They also collaborated to train left-wing activists in South America and the Caribbean to subvert and undermine their national governments.
Additionally, the Knight Foundation has an incestuous relationship with ProPublica, a corporate-funded propaganda mill that reguarly doxes right-wing activists and journalists with half-truths and smears. Knight President and CEO Alberto Ibargüen serves on the board of ProPublica while ProPublica president Paul Steiger is a trustee of the Knight Foundation, according to the Media Research Center. ProPublica has been funded with large donations from the Open Society Foundations since at least 2010.
These findings indicate that the Election Integrity Partnership is just another deceptively-named organization that is attempting disenfranchise the American voter in a desperate attempt to stack the deck against President Trump.
The Trump campaign is encouraging activists to go to DefendYourBallot.com to insert themselves in the process and become a poll challenger in order to stop this steal.
