Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has enraged the working people of Michigan with her decrees shutting down economic activity and private life until the end of April.
The backbone of America, the truckers, are expected to show up by the hundreds for Wednesday’s “Operation Gridlock” rally at Noon in Lansing, Mich., outside of the State Capitol. Protesters are being told to stay in their cars, as leaving them could subject individuals to a $1000 fine under Whitmer’s edicts, and create a traffic jam to show their disdain for their anti-Trump governor.
39-year-old Jim TenHaaf is the owner of AAA Poured Walls, a concrete contractor company operating out of Wayland, MI on the west side of the state. He told Big League Politics that many patriotic Michiganders intend to bring their big rigs and other large trucks to the rally in order to demonstrate solidarity with the working people of Michigan against the governor.
“We’ve got a decent group getting gathered together to head out of the greater Grand Rapids area on Wednesday,” TenHaaf explained.
TenHaaf hopes to bring a cement truck to the rally, but licensing and regulation issues may prevent him from doing so. Even if he cannot bring a cement truck, he says that he knows hundreds of individuals who will be bringing large trucks to crowd the Lansing roads.
“I do have hundreds and hundreds of landscape trucks, concrete equipment trucks, form trucks, pump trucks. Just a lot of people in building and construction industries that are showing up in a strong force,” he said.
TenHaaf believes the time has come for the people to fight back due to the economic damage that is happening throughout the state and across the country. The overreach is intensifying as well. Gov. Whitmer declared that gardening companies are a non-essential business last week and now has state officials harassing people on boats.
TenHaaf paraphrased former President Ronald Reagan from his first inaugural address when he said: “…it is not my intention to do away with government. It is, rather, to make it work-work with us, not over us; to stand by our side, not ride on our back. Government can and must provide opportunity, not smother it; foster productivity, not stifle it.”
“It’s very easy for government just to shut things down, but the hard thing is to work next to us and figure out how to get through this,” TenHaaf said. “Michiganders want to work. We are hard workers. We have a fire that burns in our soul to work and provide for their families, and we’re not even allowed to do that!”
“So before this fire gets extinguished, we need to get the ball rolling and keep hope alive especially for these small businesses being hit so hard. They are losing hope and we cannot let that happen,” he added.
Organizers are expecting as many as 15,000 cars in the streets of the State Capitol tomorrow as populist anger explodes throughout Michigan because of Whitmer’s intolerable acts.
“Quarantine is when you restrict movement of sick people. Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people,” Meshawn Maddock, an organizer with the Michigan Conservative Coalition, said while appearing on Fox News. “Every person has learned a harsh lesson about social distancing. We don’t need a nanny state to tell people how to be careful.”
Democrats have attempted to spin the rally as a showing of “corporate greed,” vilifying protesters who have lost their livelihood amidst the shutdown.
Corporate greed during a national pandemic, folks.
Right here, @BetsyDeVosED and her family putting profit before people. Disgusting! We aren't disposable. We need courageous leadership that focuses on health experts, not profit margins.

Democrats may learn that they have pushed the people of Michigan too far with their stay-at-home tyranny when the truckers come to Lansing on Wednesday. The official Facebook page for the “Operation Gridlock” event can be accessed here.
Virginia’s Ralph Northam Caught At Beach Without Facemask, Social Distancing
Northam has mandated strict coronavirus restrictions.
A new photo has emerged of controversial Virginia Governor Ralph Northam inspecting safety measures while inspecting a public beach at Virginia Beach. In the photo, Northam is neither wearing a facemask or keeping six feet of distance away from other people, as suggested by social distancing guidelines.
Northam was caught engaging in the hypocritical conduct on Saturday.

As Governor, he’s urged Virginians to wear face masks and to maintain social distance from others. The state is currently slated to keep its stay-at-home restrictions in place for a lengthier duration than other states, with one public health official claiming that the state’s reopening would be a “two year affair.”
The Governor’s staff issued an excuse for his irresponsible conduct on Saturday, claiming ignorance towards the possibility of entering close proximity with other people.
JUST IN: Statement from @GovernorVA on not wearing a mask today while in Virginia Beach. “The Governor has repeatedly encouraged wearing face coverings inside or when social distancing is impossible. He was outside today and not expecting to be within six feet of anyone.” @NBC12

This isn’t the first report suggesting that Governor Northam is engaging in rank hypocrisy amidst widespread disruption to the lives of everyday citizens during the coronavirus epidemic. Multiple witnesses in Dare County, North Carolina, have claimed that either Northam or his personal family members have violated both county and state stay-at-home restrictions through travel to Northam’s luxurious oceanfront vacation home. Northam denied the reports, but is yet to answer why cars with his distinguishable license plates have been arriving at the gated community where his vacation home is.
The beachfront incident is perhaps the latest corroborating evidence of hypocrisy and an elitist double standard. Luxury and leisure for me, and restrictions for thee?
