An Owosso, Mich. barber has been told by the state of Michigan that if he does not shut down his business that he will be likely be held in contempt of court.
The Michigan State Police came to 77-year-old Karl Manke’s barber shop on Friday and left a Health Protection Order there at the behest of state attorney general Dana Nessel. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has made it clear that Manke could be arrested if he does not shut down his business post haste.
“Michigan has had more than 45,000 cases of COVID-19 and more than 4,300 deaths. Shiawassee County alone had had 201 cases and 16 deaths. People continue to die in our state every day due to the coronavirus. It is critically important for businesses and the general public to follow the executive order to reduce further spread of COVID-19 and save lives,” said Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Director Robert Gordon.
DHHS has made it clear that the state will ask a judge in Shiawassee Circuit Court for a temporary restraining order (TRO) if he does not shut his business down. If he does not comply with the TRO, he will likely be held in contempt of court and potentially jailed for trying to make a living.
“It is without question that we are in the middle of a public health crisis. Both the Governor, through her executive orders, and the DHHS Director, through his orders, are focused on protecting the public health of Michigan residents,” Nessel wrote.
“Based upon our present knowledge of COVID-19, businesses that require close contact – like Mr. Manke’s barbershop – present one of the highest risks for spreading the virus, not just to the City of Owosso, but to the State of Michigan as a whole. According to recent new stories, the shop has received visits from Ann Arbor, Saginaw, Detroit, Jackson and other areas,” she added.
The attorney general made it clear that actions like Manke’s will not be tolerated, and all Michigan residents must continue to live under shutdown conditions until Governor Gretchen Whitmer declares otherwise.
“Mr. Manke was given every opportunity to voluntarily comply with the Governor’s Executive Order and the order of the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services Director. As a result of his continued operation, today his business was deemed an imminent danger to the public health and ordered to be shut down by the DHHS Director. If he refuses, the Department of Attorney General will request an order from the Shiawassee County Circuit Court on Monday to close his business,” Nessel wrote.
“Mr. Manke’s actions are not a display of harmless civil disobedience. His actions are counterproductive to the collective effort businesses and communities everywhere have made to slow the spread of COVID-19, and by opening the doors to his business, he’s putting the lives of many more Michiganders at risk,” she added.
Manke made it clear that his livelihood is on the line, and he cannot afford to sit at home any longer and lose the business.
“I’m not trying to be a scofflaw. I’m trying to make a living,” said Manke. “I tried for the unemployment. I was denied twice on unemployment. I haven’t seen anything in one these other checks from the government.”
Another protest is scheduled in Lansing at the State Capitol on Thursday, May 14 from 9 am to 1 m The humiliation of Manke, who has become a hero across the state, by Whitmer’s thugs may make this upcoming protest the largest thus far.
SCAM HEARING: Rudy Giuliani Gets Squeezed by Michigan GOP Leaders with Key Whistleblowers Unable to Give Testimony
State representative Matt Hall perpetrated this scam.
Tonight’s hearing in Lansing, Mich. featuring attorney Rudy Giuliani has been deliberately scheduled late at night by Republican leaders so whistleblowers can be disenfranchised and not have their powerful testimonies heard by the masses, Big League Politics has learned.
Earlier today, journalist and whistleblower Shane Trejo received a call from Rudy Giuliani attorney Christina Bobb asking him to give testimony with Giuliani about the fraud he witnessed in Detroit on election day. Trejo also hoped to talk about the terror campaign instituted against whistleblowers and public officials by Michigan attorney general Dana Nessel.
Trejo had given truncated testimony at a hearing before the Senate Oversight Committee on Monday, in which he was limited to under three minutes. The video can be seen here:
However, shortly after Bobb extended the invitation for Trejo to speak, she was forced to rescind it. Bobb explained that Trejo would not likely be included on the docket because state representative Matt Hall scheduled the hearing in the House Oversight Committee at 6pm. Trejo believes this is being done to deliberately limit the time in which whistleblowers are able to speak.
“Matt Hall first said that he wasn’t going to bring Giuliani into the state of Michigan because of “logistical” concerns. After overwhelming anger due to his cowardly betrayal of his constituents, he was finally forced to acquiesce and hold a hearing,” Trejo said.
“Then he decided to hold the hearing at 6pm. Now, countless whistleblowers are having their voices muted as a result. This is just another insult against the heroes risking it all to come forward and expose the most heinous crime in U.S. history,” Trejo added.
Big League Politics has reported about the complicity of Michigan Republican leaders with the Democrats who orchestrated the vote steal:
Earlier this week, Big League Politics reported on the cowardly Republicans on the state board of canvassers who signed off on a dubious vote even after dozens of conservative whistleblowers have come forth detailing a third-world gangster vote steal operation that occurred in the city of Detroit.
One Republican on the state board of canvassers, Norm Shinkle abstained from the vote, being too weak to actually oppose electoral impropriety. The other Republican on the state board of canvassers, Aaron Van Langevelde, actually voted with the Democrats to certify election results marred with improprieties and abnormalities.
“We have a clear legal duty to certify the results of the election, as shown by the returns that were given to us,” Van Langevelde said. “We cannot and should not go beyond that. As John Adams once said, ‘We are a government of laws, not men.’”
“This board needs to adhere to that principle and do its part to uphold the rule of law here today. This board must uphold the law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election,” he added.
Van Langevelde received a great deal of support from the liberal media. He also received the backing of the House Republican leadership in the state, who will keep him employed in his cushy role with the party for going along with the façade.
“Aaron has been a very valued member of this team and will continue to be next session,” said Republican Speaker-elect Jason Wentworth of Farwell.
Republican House Speaker Lee Chatfield of Clarklake praised Van Langevelde’s betrayal as a great example of “America at work.”
“As we have been saying consistently for weeks, the Legislature will uphold the law and respect this result as it works to improve the process for next time,” Chatfield said.
Van Langevelde works as a policy adviser and deputy legal counsel for the Michigan House Republican Policy Office. He was effectively carrying out policy from his GOP establishment masters when he joined Democrats to betray his oath of office earlier this week.
These are the primary Republicans standing in the way of electoral integrity in the state of Michigan.
