Finally! The State Legislature is taking Ms Whitmer to Court, trying to get a ruling that the 1945 law she is using to create her tyrannical rulings unconstitutional!
www.bridgemi.com...

“It’s a sad day for our state, because we truly should all be working together,” Chatfield, R-Levering, said in a press conference at the Michigan Capitol. “We believe this is a necessary step to ensure that millions of people in our state have their voices heard.”


But the 1945 law, reportedly inspired by a Detroit race riot two years prior, was designed to facilitate responses to local emergencies, not the kind of statewide emergency Whitmer continues to assert in her response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the lawsuit contends.

The statute gives Whitmer the authority to act “within” the state, not “throughout” it, said attorneys from the Troy-based Bush Seyferth law firm who are representing the Legislature in the caes, along with House and Senate legal counsel. The law also references areas, zones and sections, which suggests it was intended for localized responses, they said.

Whatever happens in the Court of Claims, the case is likely headed for the Michigan Supreme Court.

Power in the Hands of Autocrats Relieves Us of Our Freedom

Free market economist Frederick Hayek held forth that socialistic economic planning, regulation, and intervention pave the way to totalitarianism by building a power structure that will inevitably be seized by the most power-hungry and unscrupulous. Hayek is quick to point out that emergencies have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberties have been taken away. It is a very short and slippery slope to an authoritarian dictatorship.


Stop treating us like citizens without brains and no common sense.
It's time to let the economy resume, before it is too late.

    We are looking at a great depression, by her collapsing it even more than it has to be, it will take us way longer to get out of it. You cannot compare this to the great recession of 08, this is much worse than that.

    I think that the governor should be held financially personal responsible for abusing her power as governor. You can always find people who believe as you do to collaborate what you believe is right. She is doing that. She is not thinking rationally, she has not been thinking rationally at all since she got elected. She tried shoving the gas tax down our throats and when challenged went on a binge trying to disrupt our state thinking she could blame the Republicans for everything. She has a big head, she lashes back when challenged and infringes even more punishment on everyone she can if someone challenges her beliefs. We do not need a governor like that.

    She sounds even worse than Hillary Clinton is....I must now go wash my hands since I typed that. If I said it, I would have to go wash my mouth out with soap.

    And the techno-fascists banned Candace Owens from Twitter for criticising this piece of work then later overturned the decision and apologised. Yep they APOLOGISED.

    Bet their feeble little brains were in overdrive trying to deal with a black, woman conservative with one hell of a smart brain in that head.

    The left hate African Americans that leave the plantation that is the Democratic party.

    I must admit I have somewhat of a crush on Cxandace Owens

    I hope the top courts in Michigan are open, and that they fast track this request.

    She knows damn well that this will all be in the past and people will be engrossed by the full blown election media circus by the time a judgement is handed down.

    Michigan citizens took her to court of Claims a week or so ago and got a ruling.
    I am pretty sure courts are in session for this.

    This hearing is set for fast track or whatever the term is called in Michigan.
    Win or lose, it will go up the chain of command, i am sure.
    To the State Supremes if necessary.


    And, hell, SCOTUS is open.....why not the State Supreme?

    en.wikipedia.org... make up of the justices its 4-3 rep Dem respectively

    Following the 2012 election, the court had a 4-3 conservative Republican majority, with Robert P. Young Jr. serving as Chief Justice. After the resignation of Justice Diane Hathaway and appointment of David Viviano in 2013, there was a 5-2 Republican majority.[4] After the 2018 election, the court went back to a 4-3 conservative Republican majority with the election of Megan Kathleen Cavanagh. The current Justices of the Michigan Supreme Court are:
    so this could set an interesting precedent

    I think the difference is that she isn't smart enough to kill off people that cross her and get away with it. Other than that, you can see it in her eyes and face when she doesn't get her way, she acts like a petulant, spoiled rotten brat, probably like she was growing up with a rich daddy. Hillary also took out her rage on individuals, Gretchen is taking out her rage on the entire state.

    Let her be just the FIRST corrupt domino to fall from this flu hoax.

    These politicians need to realize who they work for.

    Consequences are a bitch.

    Is this political suicide for her? She has been a Rep, Senator and Governor for Michigan since 2000, so 20 years...

    Trump took this blue state in 2016 and it looks like she is doing her damnedest to give it to him again and swap the state red.

    I hope you're right, I'm sick of Democrat governors trying to ruin our state, driving companies and people out by the tens of thousands a year.

    DontTreadOnMe if you are from Michigan , I want to say how proud I am of you and your many neighbors. I was very pleasantly surprised at the protests there. Flack caught for exercising the 2ND yet I think the guns kept the police at bay. I saw the 2ND amend. doing what it was supposed to do. Respect. Need our lily livered state opening up.

    She is worse than Hilary...this is likely her audition to become Biden’s running mate.
