Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is accusing protesters angry with Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s lock down of the state as being guilty of “corporate greed.”
Tlaib made the insulting comment in response to “Operation Gridlock,” a protest created by conservatives and independents who are angry about Whitmer’s extension of the stay-at-home order that they feel is unnecessary to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
Corporate greed during a national pandemic, folks.

Tlaib is referencing a smear job by Gov. Whitmer, who used a state-of-emergency address to denigrate pro-freedom protesters and tie them to the DeVos family without evidence.
“I think it’s really inappropriate for a sitting member of the United States president’s cabinet to be waging political attacks on any governor,” Whitmer said on Monday. “I think they should disavow it and encourage people to stay home and stay safe.”
A DeVos family spokesman made it clear that Whitmer was lying, and the DeVos family – including Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos – has nothing to do with the protest scheduled for Wednesday, Apr. 15 at Noon.
“Contrary to the governor’s statements, the DeVos family hasn’t spent a dime on this protest nor has it offered prior support to the organizing entity,” said Nick Wasmiller, a spokesman for the DeVos family.
“The DeVos family, however, understands the frustration of fellow Michiganders as elements of the governor’s top-down approach appear to go beyond public safety. Michigan deserves competent governance, not baseless attacks,” he added.
The protest is being organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition, a pro-Trump organization that feels Whitmer’s latest extension of her emergency powers has gone too far. They are urging people to attend the protest around the State Capitol in their vehicles, as they may be subject to Draconian fines of up to $1000 if they leave their vehicles, to create a traffic jam to send a strong message to the Governor and to the state legislature that enough is enough.
“Michigan’s typical small business owners obey laws, but they may not notice the progressive agenda being pushed by our radical leftist Governor Whitmer,” said Rosanne Ponkowski, president of the Michigan Conservative Coalition, in a press release.
“Governor Whitmer will put you out of business before allowing mere citizens to be responsible for their own behavior. That is madness,” Ponkowski added.
The Facebook page for the event has hosted a lot of heated debates between Michigan residents who have succumbed to the mass hysteria and people who refuse to surrender their freedoms due to media-induced fear. Tlaib’s demagoguery is not likely to keep people away from this protest.
Cuomo #MeToo Hoax Distracts From Real COVID-19 Nursing Home Deaths Scandal
This is the old bait and switch.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is in the process of getting #metoo’d, and it may be the best thing that has ever happened to him.
Before a bunch of female accusers came out with accusations of impropriety in a seemingly coordinated fashion, Cuomo was under fire for his murderous policies of housing COVID-19 patients in nursing homes with the elderly, vulnerable and infirmed.
Big League Politics has reported on the Cuomo genocide in New York as the scandal has unfolded:
The New York Post reported that a Cuomo aide admitted as such as Democratic New York state legislators on Thursday. Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa admitted that resarch related to the nursing home policy was spiked directly in response to criticism of the policy on the part of President Donald Trump.
“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” DeRosa said of Trump, referencing presidential tweets questioning the nursing home policy in August. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.”
“Then we were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice, or what we give to you guys, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation.”
A Queens Democrat assemblyman described DeRosa’s remarks as no less than revealing an attempt to avert federal scrutiny, preventing New York’s policy makers from learning of the deadly ramifications of the nursing home policy in the process.
“[it’s] like they admitted that they were trying to dodge having any incriminating evidence that might put the administration or the [Health Department] in further trouble with the Department of Justice,” said Ron Kim.
It’s all but impossible the Department of Justice will investigate the nursing home policy now that Joe Biden is President. Some have speculated that the policy cost New York as many as 10,000 lives, nearly half the deaths in the state with the most COVID-19 deaths in the nation.
After this scandal broke, these women – in fashion similar to Brett Kavanaugh and other #metoo hoaxes – emerged at the same time to get the focus off of Cuomo’s killings and put it onto his alleged sexual lasciviousness. This is very convenient, and those other Democrat governors who implemented similar policies may be breathing a sigh of relief as a result.
Commentators on the Left and Right have commented on the breathtaking idiocy of this entire media-contrived crisis:
In moronic Globalist American Empire the only hope we have of bringing war criminals, Wall Street crooks, and covid tyrants to justice is finding a former Secretary accuse them of giving the wrong compliment 15 years ago https://t.co/bx7uOIiWrc

Conservatives would be wise to stop taking the bait from the fake news media and running with their narratives that only reinforce cancel culture while detracting from the actual issues that matter.
