Michigan Barber Karl Manke Will Take Case to Supreme Court Following Order to Close His Shop

Manke’s fight has just begun.

Published

on

An appeals court ruled against Owosso, Mich. barber Karl Manke on Thursday, demanding he close his barber shop, but Manke intends to take his case to the state Supreme Court.

The Michigan Court of Appeals determined in their ruling that Manke’s rights were not violated by the administration of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in their repeated attempts to coerce him out of business.

“Here, the State has an important governmental interest in containing the spread of COVID-19,” the decision claims, adding that the executive order issued by the governor is “directed at that interest and not at any speech or expressive conduct.”

They overruled the decision of Shiawassee Circuit Court Judge Matthew Stewart, who refused to approve the state’s request to shut down Manke’s business and deprive him of his livelihood. Manke’s lawyer, David Kallman, has said that he plans to appeal the case to Michigan’s Supreme Court.

Regardless of the potential consequences, Manke refuses to cower and remains a free man in the midst of a mass hysteria that has made millions of Americans cower in fear.

“I could care less,” he said in a phone interview at his Owosso barber shop. “If they want to put me in jail, put me in jail. … I will be governed — fair governing — but not ruled. This is a police state action.”

Big League Politics has covered Manke’s stand against Whitmer’s Draconian lock down, which has made him a folk hero of sorts among freedom lovers in his state:

Heroic Texas salon owner Shelley Luther traveled thousands of miles to Owosso, Mich. on Monday to show solidarity with Karl Manke, the barber who defied orders from Governor Gretchen Whitmer and opened up despite his business being deemed non-essential.

They appeared at a press conference outside of Manke’s barber shop with the organizing front Stand Up Michigan, which is encouraging businesses throughout the state to refuse Whitmer’s orders and resume operations.

“I had 20 hair stylists working in my place. I was already a month behind on my mortgage. They were behind on their mortgage. They couldn’t feed their kids,” Luther said to explain the rationale behind her decision to open up her Dallas salon against state-level edicts…

Manke closed by highlighting the psychological ramifications that the shutdown is having on people across Michigan and throughout the country.

“Our governor was concerned more with the physical health. She is so shallow that it is totally completely out of her range of thinking that there is a mental and spiritual aspect of the human being besides the physical,” Manke said.

“We have a bunch of empty shells who are in their homes that are healthy from the coronavirus that are mentally and spiritually starved. We need to bring this type of awareness to each other. We are a community. We are meant to live in a community. So shake hands with people, address people, talk to people. This continual hiding, riding around in our cars with masks on with the windows rolled up, is not healthy!” he said to end the press conference.

Manke has showed that not every American will surrender to the media-generated fear cult, and his heroism is encouraging others to stand as well.

Virginia Man Creates Snitch List of 1,200+ People Who Ratted on Citizens for Violating COVID-19 Edicts

He received the information from a Freedom of Information Act request.

Published

A resident of Forest, Va. has assembled a list of over 1,200 snitches who reported their neighbors for potential violations of the state’s COVID-19 lockdown.

Isaiah Knight compiled the list after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which gave him the name of people who participated in the Soviet-style snitching campaign against their fellow man. He received information from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) that 1,293 people made complaints to authorities.

“The short answer is I wanted to see how many people would rat out Anne Frank. And it’s essentially that,” Knight said.

“What you see on this list from the Department of Health is people’s businesses. You see a lot of people who are complaining about churches. And I just don’t think the government should be telling people whether or not they should be wearing a mask or not,” he added.

Knight does not plan to release the personal information of the snitches, but he wants potential snitches to know that mindlessly complying with government tyranny could have serious consequences.

“I hate that, that you have neighbors who are reporting neighbors. People who are reporting bodies of religion and churches. And I just I hate that and I think our Commonwealth is so much better than snitching on each other and creating a culture like that,” he said.

The COVID-19 pandemic is being used to normalize some of the worst Orwellian overreach imaginable:

The coronavirus pandemic is being used to escalate the push for Big Brother, and tech corporations are salivating at the opportunity to help enforce social distancing edicts with terrifying innovations.

The Intercept has reported on the push to slap FitBit-style bracelets onto people in order to track them and coerce their behavior. AiRISTA Flow, a tech firm based out of Maryland, is marketing bracelets that would beep whenever a person comes within six feet of another individual in the workplace.

“When people come within six feet of each other for a period of time,” the company wrote in a press release about their creepy and invasive device, “the device makes an audible chirp and a record of the contact is made in the AiRISTA Flow software system.”

The technology would also allow employers to track every violation of social distancing edicts committed by their workers. The workers could then be reprimanded, or even fired, based off of the information gathered by the device.

The Redpoint Positioning Corporation is developing similar technology to turn employers into quarantine enforcement brigades. They have announced that they are working on modifying “cutting-edge technology … already used by leading companies worldwide in third-party logistics, auto manufacturing, mine operation” to be used in the enforcement of social distancing edicts. They plan on tagging people and products in the workplace to allow employers to institute Draconian restrictions on the freedom of movement.

“If social distancing parameters, such as a 1- or 2-meter radius, are violated between workers, the tag alarm will alert them to the hazard,” Redpoint wrote in their press release.

“If an infection does occur, historical data from the system will allow for highly accurate contact tracing, as records can show the individuals who were near the infected party,” they added.

Israeli surveillance firm SuperCom is repackaging services that are used on criminals to enforce home confinement on ordinary people in the workplace. They are calling their service “PureCare,” and it is described as a “state-of-the-art solution for quarantine and isolation monitoring to aid government efforts in containing and limiting the reach of infectious diseases.” They claim it is “a non-intrusive patient friendly system that constantly tracks patient location within buildings, vehicles and outside.”

They noted in their press release that they have experienced a sharp increase in “government agencies looking to restrict the spread of COVID-19 among their general population” and anticipate “additional potential industry demand for electronic monitoring services coming from the incarcerated American population.”

Perhaps punishing snitches who comply with government tyranny could be a way to halt the seemingly inevitable rise of Big Brother.
