Lansing — Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said Tuesday she would not enforce a state abortion ban if federal protections are overturned, and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said she would veto any new anti-abortion legislation that reaches her desk.
The first-term Democrats promised a dramatically new approach to abortion and reproductive rights in Michigan during separate speeches at a Planned Parenthood of Michigan conference in Lansing.
“You’ve got a powerful backstop in a veto from my office,” Whitmer said. “But the goal is not just to stop bad things from happening. It’s to set an agenda that respects women and girls and family planning.”
Irresponsible women getting knocked up and owning their choices = bad. “Butchering” infant boys and girls = okay, got it?
Whitmer, Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson make up an “amazing” “triumvirate of women that protect us all in the state,” Planned Parenthood of Michigan CEO Lori Carpentier said during an introduction.
Michigan's new thought police effort violates the 1st and 14th Amendments according to lawsuit by AFLC
Some of Michigan’s new administration’s nonsense goes beyond ‘virtue signalling’ or shaming.
We’ve had a few minutes for it to settle in. But the bottom line is that Michigan’s newest Attorney General Dana Nessel is clearly using the power of the state to persecute those who would disagree with her worldview. To the level legally possible, she is using public monies to pressure those who have something to say to either shut up or be pilloried in the court of public opinion.
And this publicly funded defamation, riding under the guise of fighting ‘hate speech’ is being done indiscriminately, and lazily. Nessel’s new thought police unit is using a map to target, and developed by the SPLC, a private, ideologically driven legal services cult that frequently identifies churches or family organizations as hate groups.
One of those groups is having none of it.
In a lawsuit naming (the new hate crimes unit) DANA NESSEL, and AGUSTIN V. ARBULU (Michigan dept of civil rights director), the American Freedom Law Center has charged that Nessel has officially sanctioned the SPLC’s opinions as those of the state, putting groups like the AFLC officially under the umbrella of hate as described by a private entity. Officially sanctioning the partisan opinions with the use of taxpayer dollars and the authority of the office to punish free speech and educational activities engaged in by the AFLC.
Maybe this is what it’s going to take to wake up parents who’ve decided they know better than their doctors. The quickly spreading measles outbreak in Oakland County is needless. Infectious diseases once thought eradicated in the U.S. are roaring back as growing numbers of children aren’t getting shots.
Maybe this is what it’s going to takes to wake up heritage Americans who’ve become comfortably complacent with their elected representatives in government. The quickly spreading measles outbreak in Oakland County and across this nation is needless. Infectious diseases once thought and were eradicated in the U.S. are roaring back as growing numbers of third-worlders and anchor baby children are invading our borders.
There it is- ever since Reagan singed off on the Simpson-Mazzoli Act amnesty baitpile, circa November 6, 1986.
Their parents failed them, and being very generous using it in the sense of a plural. At age 20, and still doing childish ‘muh feelz’ based garbage like that in public, then record yourself doing it – one can tell there wasn’t a male present in the household.
Hirth predicted that the economic value of wind would decline 40% once it reached 30% of electricity, and that the value of solar would drop by 50% when it reached 15% of electricity.EP
In 2017, the share of electricity coming from wind and solar was 53 percent in Denmark, 26 percent in Germany, and 23 percent in California. Denmark and Germany have the first and second most expensive electricity in Europe.
By reporting on the declining costs of solar panels and wind turbines but not on how they increase electricity prices, journalists are — intentionally or unintentionally — misleading policymakers and the public about those two technologies.
The Los Angeles Times last year reported that California’s electricity prices were rising, but failed to connect the price rise to renewables, provoking a sharp rebuttal from UC Berkeley economist James Bushnell.
Recall what the Recucklican Majority passed during lame duck 2016?
Alas! The DetNews highlights just how reprehensible the Bolshevist union of an offspring of the insurance lobby (Whitmer), and radical lesbian Nessel ✡️, has unfolded for Michiganians.
But new Gov. Gretchen Whitmer promised on the campaign trail to shut down Line 5, and she’s allowing that ill-considered vow to get in the way of sound policy.
Whitmer teamed with Attorney General Dana Nessel to block the work by declaring the tunnel unconstitutional.
Nessel’s opinion, issued last week, is that the law approving the deal violates the state constitution because its title doesn’t reflect what’s actually in the bill. That semantical objection seems an iffy legal stance, considering that so many laws in Michigan bear lofty titles that have little connection to their contents.
*Think* the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: it did the exact opposite.
But it was enough for Whitmer, who seized the ruling to order preparations for the tunnel work to cease.
This will surely end up in court. The Republican-controlled Legislature won’t stand by while the new Democratic administration usurps its lawmaking authority, nor should it.
SML Shirkey, Speaker Chatfield, I do believe you have your marching orders.
Ps. when it comes to Line 5 transporting daily 540,000 barrels of light crude oil and synthetic petroleum, 65% of the propane used in the Upper Peninsula, and 55% used statewide, methinks, someone takes the matter at hand a wee too nonchalantly.
Isn’t that just grand? An illegal alien Mexican drug smuggler is sprung free for $200. Uh-huh, now meet the magistrate.

LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued her first formal legal opinion today, finding Public Act 359 of 2018 unconstitutional because its provisions go beyond the scope of what was disclosed in its title. Governor Gretchen Whitmer had sought the Attorney General’s opinion on the constitutionality of Act 359 in a request submitted on January 1.
In her opinion, the Attorney General concludes that certain provisions of Act 359 – including those transferring all authorities related to a utility tunnel from the Mackinac Bridge Authority to the Straits Corridor Authority and requiring the Corridor Authority to enter into an agreement for the construction of a tunnel if a proposed agreement was presented by a specific date and met listed criteria – are unconstitutional because they violate Article 4, Section 24 of the Michigan Constitution, referred to as the Title-Object Clause.
Washington — The U.S. Senate’s vote to advance the ambitious Green New Deal failed as expected Tuesday, with most Democrats voting “present” in protest of what they’ve called a “sham” vote.
Michigan Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters, both Democrats, were among 43 senators voting present on the resolution, while 57 [Republicans] voted no.
Neither Stabenow nor Peters have publicly endorsed the Green New Deal but both roundly criticized their Republican counterparts for supposedly failing to take climate change seriously or even acknowledge it’s man-made.
