Marie, Mich.Big League Politics broke the story earlier this year of how Gerhard was banned from continuing his studies at Lake Superior State University dorm and charged with making terroristic threats because he posted an image that triggered a far-left student on campus. Because the student was scared by a picture of a firearm with text making fun of liberal snowflakes, Gerhard is...

    Nearly half of all deaths from the coronavirus in the United States have occurred at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, according to new reports. The rate of cases to deaths from such facilities has been disproportionate: while only 11 percent of positive cases around 282,000 have occurred at nursing homes and long-term care facilities, about 43 percent of deaths or 54,000 deaths have come from the same, the New York Times reported. The Times cited its database for the numbers, arguing that some states and the federal government have not provided comprehensive data. The...

    No cases of coronavirus have been traced back to protests in Michigan, state officials said Friday, one day after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist II took part in a peaceful unity march" through Highland Park and Detroit. Some Michiganders who observed photos and video from the event have noted that the governor, who has consistently called for residents to wear masks and keep 6 feet apart to reduce the spread of COVID-19, did not observe that during the march. On Friday, June 5, Whitmer was asked about the march and if health officials have concerns that the...

    Michigans Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmers decision to ban most residential construction during the coronavirus shutdown led to a 44 percent decline in Michigan construction jobs and contributed to her states second highest in the nation unemployment rate. Although unemployment rates rose in every state in April, three states stand out in particular: Nevada led the nation at 28.2 percent, followed by Michigan at 22.7, and Hawaii at 22.3. Michigans 22.7 percent jobless rate is the highest the state has registered since at least 1976, when comparable data was first tracked. The states previous high was 16.7 percent in December 1982...

    A gay swingers club with glory holes is being allowed to operate in Lansing while Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer aims her business-killing death ray on 77-year-old barber Karl Manke for giving haircuts. If Gretchen Whitmer can send six officers to serve Karl Manke orders to shut down his business for violating her orders, but she cant rouse herself to sent the SWAT team into a place that only exists for group sex, I think its clear that none of these orders are about public health or the transfer of disease.

    A day after armed protesters against Michigans stay-at-home order entered the statehouse in Lansing, Donald Trump once again expressed support for the rightwing movement. Michigans Democratic governor, Gretchen Whitmer, should he said: make a deal with the demonstrators. The governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire, the president wrote in a tweet on Friday morning. These are very good people, but they are angry. They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal. She didnt listen to the Presidents advice. Protestors in Michigan said that they are planning to...

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Wednesday that the protests in the state's capital city against state measures meant to limit the spread of the coronavirus make it more likely that the state will have to keep restrictions in place longer. Appearing Monday on ABC's "The View," Whitmer, a Democrat, was asked about the pushback against her administration's coronavirus restrictions. There have been multiple protests in the state's capital city of Lansing in the past few weeks, including one late last month that saw protesters -- some of them armed -- entering the state Capitol, screaming at law enforcement officers and...

    She claimed to know how frustrating the situation is, before cautioning I expect people to follow the law. These executive orders are not a suggestion. Theyre not optional. Theyre not helpful hints. Owosso barber Karl Manke has become a like folk hero in the movement to reopen the state. The 77-year-old Manke has refused to close his shop, despite repeated orders to do so. He just wants to work, Mankes attorney, David Kallman, said, according to the Lansing State Journal. And he wants to do it in a safe and responsible way.

    A Michigan judge has denied a motion made by Gov. Gretchen Whitmers administration that an Owosso barber close up shop during the coronavirus outbreak. Great Lakes News was outside Karl Mankes Barber & Beauty Shop on Monday when the ruling came down. Reporter Katie Heid said the judge denied the states claim that the 77-year-old Manke to close his shop because he was allegedly in violation of Whitmers stay-at-home order. This is not only a big victory for Mr. Manke, but also for other small businesses, she said. Who else will open their doors? The state Attorney General lost in...

    After initially pointing out that some of Whitmers critics felt her policy violated [their] constitutional rights, Melvin launched into a rant against the demonstrators and implied a racial double standard in how authorities treated the protests: "I want to talk to you about these demonstrators that I saw over the weekend in your state capitol, a number of them armed. I remember vividly a few years ago being in Ferguson, Missouri and protestors there, many of them protesting, they werent armed, they were referred to as thugs. These men and women, many of them carrying flags, walking around with their...

    NOTE: This story has been edited to reflect that the final version of the bill didnt attempt to reduce the amount of time a governor could call for a state of emergency. As promised, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has vetoed legislation that would have shortened the length of some of her executive orders. Senate Bill 858 would have amended Michigans Emergency Management Act of 1976, laying out deadlines for when some of Whitmers executive orders would end. Notably, it would have allowed restaurants, bars, gyms and other public-facing businesses to open May 15 with social distancing measures in place. The bill...

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) has been one of the most tyrannical governors during the Wuhan coronavirus. In fact, part of her shelter-in-place order was so ridiculous it banned the sale of "non-essential" items, like seeds for gardening. She even went so far as banning people from traveling between two residences. But, in her mind, her orders were "one of the nation's more conservative" stay-at-home orders. For someone who is convinced she knows what is best for Michiganders, on Monday she proved that she is not as up-to-date on health care practices as she claimed. While lecturing residents on how...

Meanwhile, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has her sights set on something else secretary of defense, say those familiar with her plans. If they go with a black woman, it would be Kamala Harris, but shes a clunky communicator and couldnt generate any excitement for her own campaign with black or white voters, the Biden insider said.

    Make no mistake about this: You are now being conditioned by Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the U.S. news media to accept fascism in your lives and to demean anyone who dares protest the irrational, brutish edicts coming down from Democrat governors and mayors as dangerous racists who want to kill you. Check out this report from California yesterday. There, Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom, who on Friday shut down all of the beaches and state parks in his domain, on Saturday surrounded the state Capitol building with police fully-armored in riot gear to deal with a peaceful assembly of...

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer slammed the protesters who gathered inside the state's Capitol building on Thursday to demand she rescind her stay-at-home orders, saying they represented the worst racism and awful parts of U.S. history. Some of the outrageousness of what happened at our capitol depicted some of the worst racism and awful parts of our history in this country, Whitmer said Sunday on CNNs State of the Union. The behavior you've seen in all of the clips is not representative of who we are in Michigan, she added.

    Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Thursday extended Michigan's state of emergency and disaster declaration through May 28, hours before it was set to expire and after hundreds of protesters, some of whom were armed, gathered in the state Capitol building to voice their displeasure with the Democratic governor. Whitmer also took shots at the Republican-controlled legislature for refusing to extend the order earlier in the day. "By refusing to extend the emergency and disaster declaration, Republican lawmakers are putting their heads in the sand and putting more lives and livelihoods at risk," she said in a statement. "Im not going to...
