The Mackinac Center for Public Policy has sued Gov. Gretchen Whitmer over her plan that allows the state to fine business owners up to $70,000 and impose up to three years incarceration for violating her executive orders. Under the emergency powers laws, fines were limited to $500 and jail time was capped at 90 days.
Whitmer’s workplace rules for reopening will be enforced by the Michigan Occupational Health and Safety Administration. That allows for…

Governor points finger at legislators — but they rejected her cut
By Tom Gantert
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has made claims that she tried to fix Michigan’s infrastructure problems, including strengthening the thousands of dams in the state.

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) accused Michigan protesters last week of depicting “some of the worst racism” in America’s history.
According to the Michigan governor, those protesting her coronavirus measures had “swastikas, Confederate flags, nooses.”
Whitmer said, “We know that people are not all happy about having to…Continue

Detroit — Detroit Democrats unanimously passed a resolution Saturday to censure a Democratic lawmaker who credited President Donald Trump with advocating for the drug that she said cured her of COVID-19.
State Rep. Karen Whitsett, D-Detroit, broke protocol by meeting with President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence during an April 14 meeting of COVID-19 survivors, where she credited hydroxychloroquine for saving her life, a Democratic district leader said.

Given that the current viral fear pandemic besieging our nation is a medical issue, let me draw a rough healthcare analogy.
If a woman goes to her doctor and tells him that she is having chest pain, she should get ready for a battery of tests, especially if she is well insured. One reason for all those tests is that the physician wants to help determine the cause and will call in other specialists who will keep ordering tests until the cause can be identified and…

As you all well know, I am retired military. So, a good place to start is to know your enemy.
What is a virus? My good old Webster’s Dictionary defines a virus as:

Any one tired of President Trump winning yet? I am NOT!
This has to be one of President Trump's best weeks. He has had FOUR major wins.
He won on Impeachment. We knew this was going to happen. The Dems had nothing but their bitter hatred against President Trump. Hatred is NOT an impeachable offense!
The Democrats had a…Continue

Dear Senators Stabenow and Peters:
I have been trying to follow the House of Representative action to impeach and now the Senate trial. I have concluded that this is wholly unjustified. Here is why.
Our Constitution states explicitly only four grounds can be used for impeachment of the President. Treason. Bribery. High Crimes. Misdemeanors. I don’t see how either charge rises to the highest levels to revoke the will of the people.
The first charge is basically…Continue
In 2016, James Shupe made history. After living as a transgender woman for a year, he decided that he wasn’t any more comfortable identifying as female than he had been identifying as male. He determined that he was, indeed, a third sex and that he needed documentation to prove it.
So it was that he convinced Multnomah County Judge Amy Holmes Hehn to issue the first court order in the U.S. legally designating an individual as a “non-binary” gender –…

The state Attorney General of Virginia seems to have finally grown tired of pesky counties and cities in his state passing Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions and would like to put the whole unpleasant affair behind him. But how does one do that? Why, by calling a press conference and issuing a proclamation, of course. Such resolutions are meaningless (according to the AG) and will have no effect on…Continue

I once posted about an Obama administration official who actually had integrity, a man who noticed that something was amiss and acted. It was this man who traveled to Trump Tower on November 17, 2016, to brief then-President-elect Donald Trump that communications from the building were being tapped. He did not notify his superior, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, beforehand.…Continue

Now we learn that Congressman Schiff was able to obtain the personal phone call logs of his political opponents, including Congressman Devin Nunes, Rudy Giuliani and others. What isn’t clear is how they were obtained, with or without a subpoena.
According to Schiff, “the blowback has only come from the far right.” He’s partly correct,…Continue

The Chicoms have a problem.
Seems the Hong Kong protests they are so desperate to tamp down have started to ignite elsewhere, deep into China's cities.
Here's one the Chicoms really didn't want:
Protesters in southern Guangdong province, China, took to the streets last week to demand the communist government not build a polluting crematorium near their town, adopting slogans common to…
