    Several Baraga County commissioners, plus the sheriff, prosecuting attorney, clerk, and treasurer of the Upper Peninsula county, have all signed a manifesto that places the state on notice that they will no longer enforce the state's COVID-19 mandates and restrictions. The declaration reads: “Since March 10, 2020, the People of the State of Michigan have endured restrictions on their freedom which have not been seen in North America since the days of King George III and the American Revolution. In the face of a worldwide pandemic our political leadership in Lansing has ignored the protections guaranteed to all America citizens...

    Andrew Cuomo — Fredo the Elder — crawled out of the cave where he spends his days pulling wings off of flies and smelts participation trophies for his handling of the pandemic in his state to remind us that he is perhaps the worst governor in America. I only said “perhaps” because who knows what Gavin Newsom will do this week? ... he has led what might be the most botched vaccine rollout in the country. Originally he had set strict rules about who would have priority to receive the vaccine, and threatened to levy fines of up to $1...

    Michigan’s Governor, Gretchen Whitmer (D), has used every tactic at her disposal to keep the State of Michigan in an almost terminal lockdown because of the COVID virus. But the Michigan State Legislature has started to unravel the convoluted web of her authority. In an early vote Friday morning, the Michigan House of Representatives voted to repeal the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act of 1945; the legislation used by Whitmer to claim authority to use public health orders to close down her state. The 1945 Emergency Powers law authorized the governor to declare a state of emergency but it...

    This week, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-Mich) was one of those nominated by Time to be its "Person of the Year." The editors praised "her pioneering efforts to transform her state from an out-dated racist republic to a vibrant authoritarian dictatorship. While there were other governors who similarly ruled with an iron fist, none were as effectively 'in-your-face' as Gov. Whitmer." Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) was also nominated, but is not expected to make the final cut because "his state's legislature is not trying to impeach him. " Self-proclaimed Gov. Stacey Abrams (D-GA) also received a nomination, but is not favored...

    In response to the perceived "second wave" of COVID-19 cases, various luminaries are advancing lame ideas for dealing with it. Though the largest controlled study of masks found no significant differences in COVID infection rates between those who did and didn't wear masks, media proclaimed President-Elect Joe Biden recommends "that everyone wear a mask until my inauguration. This is the surest way to guarantee that there will be enough survivors for me to govern when I'm president." Biden dismissed contentions that the type of masks that almost everyone has been wearing offer little to no protection, saying "I know that's...

    A petition calling for the impeachment of Democratic Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has gained traction in recent days. The renewed activity with the petition, created months ago, follows Republican lawmakers introducing articles of impeachment on Thursday over Whitmer's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, and ahead of Michigan's Board of State Canvassers meeting Monday to decide whether to certify the presidential election—a normally little-noticed process now under intense scrutiny amid claims of election fraud by President Donald Trump and state Republicans.

    Three Republican members of Michigan’s House of Representatives introduced a resolution for impeachment against Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Wednesday, following the state’s plan to enforce new coronavirus-related restrictions. “The four articles of impeachment against Gov. Whitmer include failing to respect the separation of powers by exercising power granted to the legislative branch, violating the constitutional rights of the people of Michigan, issuing executive orders against the interests of the people and state, and using state resources to reward political allies,” he added..... “We’re not the party that impeaches someone because we’re upset with policies that they’ve enacted,” he told local...
