Michigan Gov Gretchen Whitmer Did What?!

By Debbie Schlussel

I just listened to Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s latest coronavirus/COVID-19 press conference. And it was a WTF?! moment. And the latest in her string of virus related insanities and tone-deaf moves.

I have a lot to say about Michigan’s liberal Democrat Guv, most of which I reserved to private conversations with my friends as I readied for and celebrated Passover. (And maybe I’ll talk more about it at some point.) But her latest statements and actions–aside from her non-sensical dictatorial edicts–are absurd.

Today, Whitmer announced her solution to poor, desperate out of work Michiganians (I hate “Michiganders” – we aren’t Michigeese, either): a meditation hotline. I swear I’m not making this up. Um, we Michiganians want to work and get a paycheck, not meditate. This is insane and so out of touch. It’s as if this woman is locked down with Gwyneth Paltrow and the Goop staff.

Liberal elites meditate. The rest of us work!

It’s truly Whitmer’s “Let Them Eat Cake” moment. Let Them Meditate. Talk about adding insult to injury.

And on top of that is the name of the company to whom she’s mindlessly paying (wasting!) tax dollars for this: Headspace. I kid you not. The name of the company is Headspace! Soooo damn emblematic. How much more of this liberal psychobabble gobbledygook from this dictatrix are people going to take?

Not a lot more, which is why she was forced to announce in today’s press conference that she will slowly open things up again on May 1 (but refused to say what will re-open and how).

She also noted that the protesters who showed up by the thousands on Wednesday to oppose the lock down, are scheduled to have another one very soon. And she had the nerve to, once again, make outrageous claims about their behavior and predicted they would spread the virus.

Whitmer declared that the protesters would speed, get in car accidents, have to go to hospitals, and contaminate police officers. WTF?! Read the United States Constitution, bim. First Amendment. Hellooooo . . . .?

Whitmer’s behavior has thankfully meant that even clueless liberal vessel/dementia patient Creepy Joe Biden won’t pick her for his Vice Presidential nominee.

But, unfortunately, for those of us locked down in Michigan, that means that for the time being . . . we’re stuck with her.

Please publish this. She’s just an out of touch with the voters elitist snob who only cares about them during election time. She should meditate on when voters wise up and kick her out of office.

Debbie, I’m thinking he picks her. You’re looking at this all wrong. It’s about whose hair he wants to sniff.

Everyone in Michigan should memorize this: TITLE 18, U.S.C., SECTION 242 https://www.justice.gov/…/deprivation-rights-under-color-law

Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. Persons acting under color of law within the meaning of this statute include police officers, prisons guards and other law enforcement officials, as well as judges, care providers in public health facilities, and others who are acting as public officials. It is not necessary that the crime be motivated by animus toward the race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin of the victim.

The offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term, or the death

Debbie, it looks like he wants to sniff her hair. He will pick her.

Exactly how long does she expect the country to be locked up? Is Michigan suppose to become the new North Korea? I like the way she trashes the protesters. Isn’t this the party that is always telling us that protesting is a “patriotic American duty”? I guess not if it is about them. If it is safe to go to planned parenthood, why wouldn’t it be safe to go to the dentist or a doctor’s office. It has nothing to do with being for or against abortion.

The Ayatollah of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, flexing her liberal gubernatorial muscles by banning the sale of “nonessential” items like seeds to grow your own food, paint, garden supplies, clothing and car seats, has consulted with CAIR-MI to find ways muslims can feel more welcome in this country, is considering the following: banning music (except, of course, praise goes to Allah, the call to prayer), dancing, laughing too loud, and smiling excessively in public. Wearing of burqas (for public safety of course) is recommended but not mandatory at this time.

WRS- Wuhan Respiratory Syndrome is what this virus should be labeled to be consistent. In 2012, the world adopted the name Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), another oronavirus that originated in bats. Because Obama was president, there was no problem labeling it based on origin; it is still labeled MERS today. But because Donald Trump is president, the world has to kowtow to China and label this “COVID-19.” We should be calling this one WRS. The media and leftists are such frauds. Thank you for the update on the Obamesque Headspace nonsense. I will definitely spread the word.

Debbie, I am a long time follower. I love your commentary; it is always “RIGHT ON.”

The Democrats want to shut us down for as long as possible. Their goal is to tank the economy, and get Trump out of office.

Jean on April 18, 2020 at 12:56 pm

    It’s called a self-fulfilling prophecy. And unfortunately, there are a lot of people in this country dumb enough to fall for it. After all, it takes actual thinking to distinguish cause from effect.

Has anyone noticed how similar her name sounds to Kretschmer Wheat Germ? I’m not joking. Some have compared her appearance to that of a Klingon from “Star Trek.” But it figures that those on the Left who scream “sexism” and “misogyny” and “she’s being targeted just because she’s a woman” anytime this wench is rightly criticized for her fascistic measures, has engaged in far more demeaning, degrading, sexist, misogynist insults against South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem who, thankfully, has thus far not caved to the mobs demanding these totalitarian, Stalinist lockdowns for the entire country.

Meanwhile, speaking of her fealty to Planned Parenthood, I hold Whitmer partly responsible for inducing and inciting a 22-year-old Michigan mother, Marylinn Feher, last April, to murder her newborn son and then have her boyfriend dump the baby’s corpse into a garbage disposal. That, to me, is the perfect encapsulation of the Left’s attitude towards life – utterly worthless and highly disposable.

Here’s a transcendental meditation:

“The years ahead will be great ones for our country, for the cause of freedom and the spread of civilization. The West will not contain communism, it will transcend communism. We will not bother to denounce it. We’ll dismiss it as a sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last pages are even now being written.”

Ironically, I think in some ways, his victory over Soviet Communism freed Democrats up to openly pursue it here.

Something sure did.

There have been a number of surprises over the last year or so even from the right with the NRA, the President and Bob Barr seeking refuge in violating and condoning trashing the US Constitution over Red Flag laws.

Not surprising governors now even Ron Desantis has stepped outside the constitution but not without notice. The more I learn about this virus the more I feel the virus patent owner needs to be held accountable for the care custody and control of that substance and it’s use.

What I have found out is that it’s a lot more delicate than previously thought and is not passed on through hand to mouth as stomach acids destroy it quickly. Sneezing or aerosol appears to be the best mode of transmission and the numbers are appearing to look like a normal flu. Often too ventilators are a problem.

Thanks for the post.

The lockdown is one thing. But what strikes me is how she’s used it to create a fiefdom of her own, w/ her bizarro rules.

If one is stuck at home, now is the perfect time to do all those home improvement jobs that one was sitting on, and what does she do? Ban the sale of paint and garden seed. So that the only options for people would be watch Netflix, play video games, sleep or… smoke weed (which has not been banned, even though paint is).

Then there’s the rule about going to one’s 2nd home outside the city, while allowing out-of-state residents to do that. Also, when allowing kayaks and jetskis while banning motor boats, did she also rule that only one rider is allowed on either?

I do hope that she’s the VP pick for Biden, so that Vice President Pence can take her apart during the debates for her above anal policies ?

Er . . . in Whitmer’s case, “Michigeese” would very much qualify, although I do agree with Debbie’s preferred “Michiganians.”

Concerned Patriot on April 20, 2020 at 10:03 am

Debbie you can tell from that picture that Sleepy Sloppy Joe wants to either grope Dim-Whitmer, smell her hair or both. If she picks that harridan they’ll richly deserve each other.

Ken B on April 20, 2020 at 11:10 am

A “dictatrix”: I like Debbie’s phrase. Gov. Whitmer does resemble a political dominatrix.

A sign at one of the recent Coronavirus lockdown protests read as follows (and I paraphrase)…

“Hey governor… Are YOU still getting paid?! Wait until November!!”

By a show of hands how many of you think that the Democrat-Socialist-Globalists are planning on there being an election this coming November?

Let the record show that no hands are raised, including mine!

I’ve distilled all the coronavirus responses and suggested responses coming from the left. I can only conclude that if “it” will hurt this country they are “for it”. All the better if they can blame “it” on Trump. As suggested by Kent above, the US Constitution plays no part in their deeds.

It’s just a mild flu strain. Literally only peple over 80 or people with pre-existing medical problems who are risk – lock THEM up.

DS_ROCKS! on April 27, 2020 at 12:11 am

To ‘Tim Godfery’: I am forced to conclude her intention for the lockdown’s duration is until the 12th of Never.

Concerned Patriot on April 27, 2020 at 1:43 pm

Oh boy! I’ve got a feeling this lady’s going to be recalled pretty soon. And,if I might say,not soon enough for many in Michigan.

Ghostwriter on April 28, 2020 at 6:22 am

How about Michiganite for one and Michiganidae for many? The Latin structure of the plural lends it a nice scientific gravity. 🙂

The fascist left wants to keep us quarantined indefinitely. Here’s the perfect compromise…

Keep the fascists quarantined indefinitely while the rest of us get on with our jobs and our lives.

Gretchen Whitmer has done the impossible: She has made me nostalgic for Jennifer Granholm.
