Did Governor Gretchen Whitmer Just Admit That Lockdowns Are Purely Political? (Opinion)




On October 18th, 2020, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer was a guest on Meet the Press. Chuck Todd – host and often leftist hack – was told by the would-be despotic ruler of Michigan how all of the state economic lockdowns can end and how America can finally move past the horror that has been COVID-19. The long-awaited answer to the devastation brought to America and the rest of the world by the red-death Wuhan bat stew flu??? Well electing Joe Biden of course.

Whitmer told Todd that lockdowns and COVID restrictions could end if Americans would simply elect Joe Biden. She explained to Todd and his audience that Trump does not care about those who have died from COVID. Whitmer tried to convince those who were watching – in an effort to appease those who have been obedient to her tyrannical executive orders – that the real victims of the lockdowns are the “heroes” who are staying closed and staying home indefinitely. The recent target of an alleged abduction also made the charge that Trump – and all of those who wish to get back to living their life – are inciting violence. In short, all the COVID restrictions are because “Orange Man Bad.”

The Queen of Michigan wants you to believe that Trump is to blame for Democrat governors, politicians, and various other operatives keeping their economies locked down. She wants you to ignore that she – along with many other Democrats – has been claiming that masks and distancing can save us all, but that masks are not enough to open businesses. She would prefer that you not ask why it is okay to be part of an Antifa or BLM protest but not a Second Amendment or “Open Up the State” rally. Just take her word for it all and blame Trump for all your problems.

Whitmer, in making her case, went so far as to say, “This is a gravely serious moment for all of us and if you’re tired of wearing masks or you wish you were in church this morning or watching college football or wish your kids were in school in person, it is time for change in this country, and that’s why we’ve got to elect Joe Biden.” This statement on its face sounds like little more than partisan, political rhetoric. If you were to ignore the obvious facts that it has been Democrats – not Trump – that have tried to keep churches and schools closed, then it might even be a compelling call to action. But you must ignore a lot for it to be effective. (I would like to remind everyone that Biden has committed to a national mandatory mask policy.)

But what if this is something more than a stump speech supporting your party’s candidate in the closing days of a Presidential election? What if, at least for Whitmer, it really is that simple? I would typically point out the flaws of Whitmer’s “logic” and move on without playing this “What if” game, but given that we have heard very extortionist-like statements, “give us what we want or your cities will burn,” perhaps the question is appropriate to ask.

Regardless of the rationale in the beginning, have the economic lockdowns that are currently on-going become nothing more than the exercise of political power? Did Governor Whitmer just make a veiled promise to open up if we elect Biden or more of a veiled threat to remain shut-down if we re-elect Trump? Whitmer can only answer for herself and exactly how political the lockdown of Michigan happens to be. She certainly cannot speak on behalf of all of the other Democrats who maintain their own lockdowns. To me, her statement does sound a lot like an admission of politics rather than public safety. But only Whitmer knows what is going on in her head. Maybe a journalist will ask her.

Donald Trump Is Already ‘Planning for the Next Administration’ — VIDEO

2024 will be here before you know it…

John Salvatore



If Donald Trump again runs for president in 2024 AND if he becomes the Republican Party nominee, you’d have to imagine there’s little chance he would “lose” an election twice in a row. If Trump becomes president on January 20, 2025, who comes with him as a member of his cabinet? Pompeo, most likely. Carson would be probable. But you’d have to think Haley, Pence, and a few other big names from the first term wouldn’t even get a phone call. Appearing on Hannity on Friday night, Mark Meadows, former Congressman and chief of staff, dropped a bomb. Meadows said, “What we will see on Sunday is we will see the start of planning for the next administration. And I can tell you, the people that are at the top of that list, all of them have Trump as their last name.” WATCH: And here’s your daily dose of random noise from Twitter…

Trump to Start New Political Action Committee — Corey Lewandowski to Head It Up

He’s still top dog!

John Salvatore



The world has long been waiting to see what’s next for Donald Trump. The former President has been largely laying low down at Mar-a-Lago these past few weeks, with only a few quick statements having been disseminated by those around him. His Twitter account remains suspended, which could be one reason for the lack of controversy he’s spawned these days. Now, with a major CPAC speech leering imminently over the horizon, The Don is making some moves. From Fox News: Former President Trump is starting up a new political action committee and is eyeing longtime top political adviser and aide Corey Lewandowski to head up the new super PAC, multiple people with knowledge of the conversations confirmed to Fox News. The move was decided during a meeting late last week at Trump’s south Florida residence at Mar-a-Lago when the former president gathered with his political team. The group included 2020 campaign managers Bill Stepien and Brad Parscale, senior adviser Jason Miller, former White House social media director Dan Scavino, and Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. CONTINUED: Sources familiar with the meeting shared that a number of Trump’s post-presidency political activities were discussed and added that plans to start up the PAC were not finalized. “MAGA supporters and candidates supporting President Trump’s America First agenda are going to be impressed with the political operation being built out here,” Miller said. “We expect formal announcements of the full team in the coming weeks, which will include some very talented operatives not yet named.” The move will likely solidify Trump’s influence over the Republican Party – something that moderates and Democrats alike still fear.
