Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vetoed Monday a bill from the GOP-controlled Legislature that would have provided additional liability protections for health care workers and facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Legislature’s bill would have added language to the 1976 Emergency Management Act specific to the COVID-19 pandemic that would have established expanded liability protections from March 10 through Jan. 1, 2021.
What this should indicate to anyone with reasonable intelligence is that Gretchen Whitmer knows she is a one term governor, as does Gretchen’s Party so, her and the Democrat Party are throwing everything they can into the wind of a looming, President Trump landslide re-election victory.
On Friday, the UAW decided they would support at any cost, the power grab by Dem governor Wretched Grifter. A blast was sent out claiming that ‘Unlock Michigan’ efforts are making false claims and attempting to take away the Governor’s power to “Do everything she can to keep Michigan working families safe.”
It doesn’t stop there however. The UAW wants folks who received this blast (presumably it’s membership) to “report or record any petition gathering activities ..” [Insert record scratch here]

In Detroit, the Department of Justice will supplement state and local law enforcement agencies by sending approximately 42 federal agents from the FBI, DEA, and ATF to the city. An additional 10 Detroit ATF agents have been reassigned to work on violent gun crimes. Under the leadership of Matthew Schneider, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, these federal agents will work cooperatively with the Detroit Police Department to combat gun and gang violence, as they have been doing since December 2019. These additional resources include 11 new and permanent ATF Special Agents and five new and permanent FBI Special Agents who will focus on violent crime in the City of Detroit.
The Bureau of Justice Assistance will make available $1.4 million to support Operation Legend’s violent crime reduction efforts in Detroit, and the COPS Office has also made $2.4 million available to the Detroit Police Department to fund the hiring of 15 officers.
Sreenivas Cherukuri is running a campaign for the term-limited 38th state representative seat in Oakland County, and he has portrayed himself as an example of the “American Dream,” being born of immigrants who assimilated and grew to be wealthy and successful as a result of freedom and opportunity.
Cherukuri has portrayed himself as a fervent supporter of American values. He received an Aq rating from the National Rifle Association based on his responses to their candidate survey. He has touted himself as a defender of the 2nd Amendment as well as a hardcore Trump supporter.
We are currently at a historic crossroad within our state.
Our governor has taken it upon herself, to bestow her office with virtually unlimited power and authority.
She has utilized that to imprison our fellow citizens within their own homes, unilaterally decided which Michiganians are essential along with those of us who are not, has placed the health and safety of our most vulnerable population in mortal danger for the sake of her own bureaucratic convenience, has significantly damaged Michigan’s economy through a series of contradictory and mystifying executive orders and has turned Michiganian against Michiganian via the same.
July 24 was the deadline for campaign finance reports for Michigan legislature. Here are summaries of the total amount raised in competitive Michigan state house districts. Totals include in-kind contributions. Candidates who filed reporting waivers are generally omitted. These numbers come from MIRS and the SOS campaign finance reports. XX means the report has yet to be filed.
I thought masks weren’t supposed to be political, Gretchen? Perhaps you missed it, but @POTUS has already been wearing a mask. Maybe if you focused more on reality instead of trying to defund your state’s police and drive the economy into the sewer, you’d know that. pic.twitter.com/gwX5bNa9XH
Did you ever notice all these mask harpies are the same people that hoarded all the toilet paper? They don’t care about anyone else, they only care about deflecting their own insignificance they see in the mirror every day onto others- science and common sense be damned!
