Michigan Democrats Turn on Gretchen Whitmer for Putting COVID Patients in Nursing Homes

Whitmer essentially issued death sentences to these coronavirus sufferers.

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s heavy-handed authoritarian governance has made her a pariah throughout the state, and Democrats are starting to become frustrated with her leadership as a result.

State representative Leslie Love (D-Detroit) is flabbergasted over Whitmer’s order to send coronavirus patients into nursing homes, which has resulted in an untold number of unnecessary deaths by putting the most vulnerable population at needless risk.

“To return seniors into an environment, seniors with the virus still recovering from the virus, into an environment with, well, seniors, just didn’t seem — it’s not a good idea,” Love said.

Whitmer made an executive order in April that mandated seniors diagnosed with COVID-19 to be placed into nursing homes, called “regional hubs,” to be around other healthy seniors. State officials claim that the policy is effective because of distance requirements that are required between the healthy and unhealthy seniors.

“It’s a good move, a good step to make these regional hubs, and I think as we move forward, we have to look at making sure we’re really implementing best practices, looking to other best practices across the state,” Chief Medical Executive Joneigh S. Khaldun said.

Initially, the state wanted to put the sick seniors at the TCF Center in Detroit but that became untenable after the site was shut down. This meant seniors with coronavirus were put into nursing homes among the vulnerable instead.

Love is worried about individuals in nursing homes throughout the state, including her 86-year-old mother, catching the highly-infectious disease.

“That would break my heart because I’ve been on the front lines of this, trying to make sure our seniors — my mother, your mother, anybody else’s mother — does not get sick and die from this, particularly if they’re in a nursing home,” Love said.

Love isn’t the only Democrat lawmaker who is angry with Whitmer over her response to the coronavirus pandemic. State representative Karen Whitsett (D-Detroit) has had contentious words with Whitmer because she dared to credit President Donald Trump after hydroxychloroquine saved her life.

“There’s so much more to this story, and it’s shameful on the Democratic Party,” Whitsett said last month. “Let’s be serious and use some common sense here.”

“The resources we’re supposed to have he told me quite frankly are supposed to come from the Governor and the Governor is not painting the same picture to him or the Vice President,” she added. “I believe this is the Governor. She has decided that she is going to slap me on the wrist by silencing me. It’s a shame that she’s doing this. It’s politics at its best.”

Whitmer’s mismanagement of the coronavirus borders on criminal and should disqualify her from vice presidential contention completely.

Heroic Michigan Barber Wins Appeal to Michigan Supreme Court Against Governor Whitmer’s Shutdown Edicts

Karl Manke has taken on the system and won.

The Michigan Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Karl Manke, the Owosso barber who the state has been trying to put out of business for weeks because he cut hair without the permission of Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

The Department of Health and Human Services V Manke decision was ruled in favor of Manke by a 7-0 margin on Friday, although the case is still not settled.

“It is incumbent on the courts to ensure decisions are made according to the rule of law, not hysteria. Here, in addition to entering an order whose validity is highly suspect, the Court of Appeals majority took the extraordinary step of directing the trial court to take immediate action despite the fact that an application for leave had already been filed in our Court,” the ruling stated.

“Courts decide legal questions that arise in the cases that come before us according to the rule of law. One hopes that this great principle—essential to any free society, including ours—will not itself become yet another casualty of COVID-19,” the ruling concluded.

Big League Politics has reported on the Manke case as he made his heroic stand for freedom against the tyranny of his Democrat, anti-Trump governor:

Owosso, Mich. barber Karl Manke refuses to bow to the state, and he is operating his barber shop in direct contradiction to a court order mandating that he shut down.

Manke was still open for business on Tuesday, despite the fact that goons from Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office showed up at his barber shop the day prior to tell him he was violating the order.

“Both you guys look like you need a haircut,” Manke said he told the agents from the attorney general’s office.

While Manke was discussing his visit with Nessel’s goons, an individual in the barber shop suggested that he should offer to cut Nessel’s hair. Manke then mentioned that some of his supporters were sending letters with their own hair in it to show their dismay with Nessel and her boss Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

“I don’t know how many of my clients have loaded up hair and sent it to the governor,” Manke said.

Shiawassee County Circuit Judge Matthew Stewart issued an order on Friday, which stated that Manke’s barber shop “shall be locked and closed.” His attorney, David Kallman, has requested that the state Supreme Court intervene on behalf of his client.

The Safe Salons for Michigan coalition claims that this is the only state in which salons remain completely closed, as Whitmer arbitrarily punishes barbers and hair stylists out of spite.

“It’s a bunch of crap. Really, it is,” Manke stated about Whitmer’s edicts, which he maintains are unconstitutional.

“Like all governments, they’ll do something knowing that it’s probably illegal but if they tie it up in the court system, then they can drag it on and do what they want to do,” he added.

On the same day the ruling was announced, Gov. Whitmer said she was lifting the ban on salons and barber shops in her state. Manke has shown how one principled courageous man can defeat the gynocracy.
