  • Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Vetoes Bill to Prevent COVID-19 Patients From Being Housed in Nursing Homes

    Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer vetoed a bipartisan bill on Friday that would have protected the elderly and vulnerable by banning COVID-19 patients from being quarantined in nursing homes. “Protecting the health and safety of nursing home residents and their staff continues to be a top priority for my administration,” Governor Whitmer said while announcing her veto. “Senate Bill 956 is nothing more than a political game that would relocate vulnerable seniors without any requirement for consent, doctor’s approval, or notification to patients and their families. It’s time for the Republican legislature to get serious about protecting our most vulnerable and...

The shooting happened in a neighborhood in Delta Township about 30 minutes after the stabbing outside a Quality Dairy store, state police Lt. Brian Oleksyk said.

    Michigan’s Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order Friday that goes into effect Monday mandating face masks in public indoor and crowded outdoor spaces. It introduces a misdemeanor charge with a $500 fine for violators who refuse. “The heroes on the front lines of this crisis have gone hours without taking their masks off every day, doctors, nurses, child care workers, grocery store workers. We owe it to them to wear our masks when we’re on a trip to the grocery store or pharmacy,” Whitmer said in a press release. “For the sake of your loved ones, let’s all...

    Nearly half of all deaths from the coronavirus in the United States have occurred at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, according to new reports. The rate of cases to deaths from such facilities has been disproportionate: while only 11 percent of positive cases – around 282,000 – have occurred at nursing homes and long-term care facilities, about 43 percent of deaths – or 54,000 deaths – have come from the same, the New York Times reported. The Times cited its database for the numbers, arguing that some states and the federal government have not provided comprehensive data. The...

    President Trump has lost ground with his base of voter support, white Americans, in swing states while not increasing his support with Hispanic and black Americans, New York Times/Siena College polls show. The polls of six battleground states, released this week, come as racial tensions have swept the nation with the Black Lives Matter movement leading riots, protests, and the destruction of historical monuments in major cities. Conservative circles have speculated that voters may not be expressing their actual opinions to pollsters. Trump’s administration has been laser-focused on messaging specifically to black Americans, with daily social media posts from the...

    Still in the midst of the most wretched tyranny ever imposed on an American state, attorney Katherine Henry has authored the Restore Freedom Initiative, which would amend the Michigan State Constitution in order to avoid a repeat performance by any of the state’s future governors. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) called the effort to clarify the separation of powers, foundations and functions of government to enhance government accessibility, transparency and accountability, “irresponsible. In times of crisis there isn’t time to debate. A strong leader needs to take action immediately. Fussing over whether laws are passed by the legislature or decreed by...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden did not sponsor or co-sponsor any of the six bills recognizing Juneteenth during his time in the U.S. Senate, though he is now attempting to champion the holiday. Juneteenth commemorates the day that slaves in Galveston, Texas, were informed — on June 19, 1865 — that they had been freed by President Abraham Lincoln in the Emancipation Proclamation more than two years before. A search of GovTrack records of congressional bills, which is a complete record of all legislation dating back to 1973 — the year Biden entered the Senate — finds that Biden neither...

Emagine Entertainment announced it would hold the event at a Royal Oak theater to “honor the work of black actors, screenwriters, and filmmakers,” Fox 2 reported. But Attorney General Dana Nessel quickly intervened because it allegedly violated Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive orders still shuttering portions of the Michigan economy.

    By treating Black Lives Matters protests differently than other large gatherings, public officials and health experts have exposed themselves as hypocrites. We’re told a second wave of coronavirus infections is coming. As businesses open back up and states relax lockdown orders, the number of new cases is ticking up in a handful of states. We’ve heard warnings in recent days from the Centers for Disease Control and various public health experts and elected officials that a new series of lockdowns might be necessary.What these experts and officials don’t seem to realize is that Americans will never comply with their lockdown...

    We are unlikely to find more than one person out of a hundred, and this includes law enforcement professionals, who is O.K. with what Derek Chauvin (allegedly until proven guilty) did to George Floyd. President Trump just issued an executive order to address the abuses highlighted by Floyd's death, and rightly so. The House and Senate are both meanwhile considering legislation that goes beyond the executive order. We do not, however, need to associate with a group like Black Lives Matter to achieve reforms with which everybody, including police, agree. BLM is right to denounce the tiny minority of...

The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) has a long history rooted in terror. However, recently the group has been giving out food, in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Can a few bags of fruits and vegetables remove ICNA’s horrors of the past and threat to the present? Two lawmakers, US Congressman Lou...

The Democrats made their remarks at a Michigan Women for Biden event on Monday, the Detroit News reported. “Some people say, ‘Oh, look at the numbers,'” Dingell said. “I don’t believe these numbers.” Dingell said given the events of the past few months, a lot can unfold over the next few months leading up to November’s election. “The world is upside down and not one of us on this phone call...
