Rashida Tlaib: Michigan Protesters Crippled by Democrat Economic Shutdown are Guilty of ‘Corporate Greed’

Tlaib is angry about a planned protest on Wednesday.

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.

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.

Michigan AG Challenges Voter Integrity Lawsuit, Pushes to Keep Social Distancing Mandates to Stop Poll Challengers

Democrats are dedicated to their steal.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is aggressively fighting back against legal efforts to ensure voter transparency in her state.

Nessel issued a brief on behalf of Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Bureau of Elections Director Jonathan Brater. Two conservative activists have filed a lawsuit against Benson and Brater to get an injunction on a state directive that disenfranchises poll challengers by forcing them to stay six feet behind poll workers at all times.

“The State of Michigan has a strong interest in protecting the health and safety of people when they are voting, and also in protecting the election workers while they perform their vital functions. The Secretary’s directive furthers that objective while also providing for challengers to perform their tasks,” Nessel wrote in her brief arguing to make poll challengers irrelevant.

Nessel attempted to claim that the plaintiffs in the lawsuit – state representative candidate Stephen Carra and electoral integrity watchdog Bob Cushman – have only “speculative and hypothetical” concerns because they are not directly impacted by the directive disenfranchising poll challengers. Nessel embarrassed herself by writing blatant falsehoods in her brief.

“Plaintiff Carra has no greater interest in a lawful election than any other citizen who likewise expects that people at polling locations will adhere to the laws,” she wrote.

“Cushman does not allege that he has been informed by any organization that he will be appointed as a challenger for the November 2020 election, or even from which organization he expects to be appointed. It should be noted that—at the time of filing this brief—less than 8 days remain before Election Day. Cushman’s alleged interest, therefore, remains speculative and renders his interests merely hypothetical,” Nessel added.

However, Cushman promptly produced his poll challenger credential for the court, proving Nessel’s brief to be filled with deceptions. He showed that he is an official poll challenger for election day certified by state Republican Party chairwoman Laura Cox.

Big League Politics reported earlier today on how the Michigan Secretary of State is still enforcing the six-feet mandate, despite any doubletalk coming from the Democrat administration desperate to stop Trump at all costs:

In the aftermath of the #DetroitLeaks scandal, there are serious questions about electoral integrity in the state of Michigan. Big League Politics has reached out to representatives in the Trump campaign and officials with the Secretary of State to clarify what is being done with regards to poll challengers.

We released the audio from poll worker trainings in Detroit, in which the instructor and the prospective workers were cackling about how poll challengers would be disenfranchised due to social distancing mandates. The instructor advised for poll workers to call the police on poll challengers who refuse to adhere to these policies that are not based on any law passed by the state legislature.

We reached out to the Trump Victory team in Michigan to see what is being done with regards to protecting the rights of poll challengers to guard the vote. One representative from Trump Victory explained that the Secretary of State would be giving a directive to local clerks informing them that the six-feet distancing rule is not binding and will not be enforced.

However, Big League Politics reached out to the elections division of the Secretary of State and heard a contradictory perspective. We made contact with the Bureau of Elections Outreach Coordinator, Kristi Dougan, and had a brief discussion about the policy. Dougan confirmed that the six-feet distancing policy will be implemented on election day but danced around exactly how the policy will be enforced.

Dougan disputed the notion that poll challengers will be disenfranchised as a result of the six-feet distancing policy, and she believes that election officials will figure out ways on the fly to keep an orderly process.

“There are some creative ways to accommodate everyone involved,” she said.

The lawsuit was filed after the #DetroitLeaks revelations showed poll workers cackling as an instructor informed them that they could hide behind COVID-19 social distancing requirements to neutralize poll challengers. Big League Politics will report on the court deliberations in this landmark case for electoral integrity, which begins tomorrow morning.
