Left-Wing Michigan Governor Floats Truly Orwellian Measures Under The Guise Of Combating Coronavirus

(Tea Party PAC) – You had to know that, as our nation battles the novel coronavirus within our borders, there would be those out there who are determined to take advantage.

Never let a good crisis go to waste, right?

The leftist Governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, is just one of these people.

She has not ruled out invoking Martial Law in her state to battle the virus.

As of Saturday afternoon, according to The Gateway Pundit:

• There have been 2,499 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the US.
• There have been 55 deaths blamed on the coronavirus.
• There have been 36 million cases of seasonal flu.
• There have been 22,000 deaths blamed on seasonal flu.

You know this is exactly what the Democrats have been trying to prepare the minds of the American people for.

They’d like nothing more than to see more left-wing governors start restricting gun sales, suspending free speech, imposing curfews, and all manner of unconstitutional measures to stop the spread of the virus that has killed so few Americans.

The Daily Caller reported:

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer discussed the outbreak of the coronavirus Friday morning on the Michael Patrick Shiels talk radio show. Shiels asked Whitmer whether she would declare martial law in the state of Michigan.

“Could we get to a position where it’s sort of like martial law, where everything is closed and everybody stays home, like it is in Italy, for instance ,where you only have the hospitals and the drug stores open?” Shiels asked.

“I think we have to make decisions based on where the facts and science dictate,” Whitmer said. “At this juncture it is too early to make any statements — it wouldn’t be responsible to make any statements on that front.”

“I will tell you that every decision we make, we will be transparent about it, what’s driving the decision,” she added. “We will share it as quickly as we can with the public once the decision has been made and we will always put the health and safety of the people of the state first and foremost and that will drive all decisions.”

Meanwhile, in Illinois, one mayor is already restricting gun sales at a time when her citizens have more of a reason than ever to want to defend themselves.

As Breitbart reported, on Thursday, Champaign, Illinois Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen (a Democrat, as if I even had to tell you), issued an executive order giving her the power to halt ammunition and firearm sales in the city.

A statement from the city read:

Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen issued an Executive Order declaring the existence of a local emergency in the City of Champaign related to the COVID-19 virus, which is causing or is anticipated to cause widespread impacts on the health of members of the community. Provisions in Chapter 12 of the Champaign Municipal Code provide the Mayor authorization to declare an emergency for a limited period of time. This allows the Mayor to exercise significant emergency powers at the inception of the emergency, and then to provide an opportunity for the City Council, as a whole, to deal with an emergency.

  1. And if I lived in Michigan the very first thing I would do is hire an attorney and file a 1 TRILLION dollar constitutional violations lawsuit against this idiots arse so fast that she would wish that all she had was this virus to deal with. And this would throw cold water on the Democrats attempts to take our guns so fast that it would break their necks for them to be moving backwords.

  2. FUNNEL VISION: which end are you lQQking through?
    INCREMENTALISM: one state at a time! Michigan is the test case for the mule party AmeriKan Soviet Socialist (ASS) invasion!

    Side of This Anti Human Rights Criminal Jew Filth ?

    • And with your bias and racism its a wonder they even let you on this site. Go to the White Supremacy websites and they will believe your racist BS, but not here

  4. I hate to say this, as a confirmed conservative – probably for more years than most of you, this article had scandalous misquotes of both of these politicians, misquoted from the blaring headline through the lead-in. If you read the rest of the article: the mention of calling up the National Guard under emergency powers was NOT made by the governor but rather a local talk show host, Michael Patrick Shiels. Before the fifth conservative commenter makes a comment, I would suggest that anyone else who comments should read the damned article completely and carefully. I despise it when conservatives make comments that are just as ridiculous as CNN and the rest of the lamestream media. TeaPartyPAQ writers and commenters have do better this or else we are just as hypocritical and biased as the left-wing nuts. FOLKS, WE CANNOT SINK THAT LOW!

    • I totally agree with you. As much as CNN, MSNBC, NYT, etc. pushes out fake news all the time, conservative editorials that we depend on for news such as TeaPartyPAC should objectively pushes out news that are factually based and not stoop to the level of the MSM that the rest of America distrust.

      Please do not go there where President Trump is calling out fake news.

  5. This whole virus is a hoax. The globalists have been losing their power. Now by scare tactics and working with the left wing news media are actually shutting down the economies of multiple countries. It’s a power move. 20,000 die from the flu every year on average. Yet 55 die out of 350 million people and we have a pandemic? Get real. The left is doing exactly what they do. Create a fake disaster to take down Trump. They don’t give a dam about the virus or people suffering from a down economy. I personally think Trump has been railroaded during this whole thing. Just like the flu people need to take precautions . The elderly especially since that’s who it is affecting. Anyone with good health have not been negatively affected. Average age of the deaths is 80. Tell me now why are we in a state of emergency? Makes no sense. Why are the stores void of toilet paper, paper towels , Kleenex and water? Tell me why? The symptoms have nothing to do with people needing to wipe their butts. The symptoms have to do with the chest and lungs. Pneumonia not diarrhea. All those panicking fools leaving millions without supplies is disgusting. This is why we the people cannot believe anything global. The W.H.O we should pay zero attention to. What good have they done? FEAR or FAITH. Don’t be a killjoy. Live your lives.

  6. I can’t believe people actually believe what these Democrats say!!! Why do ‘t they just do some investigation? I realize on line sources make it difficult to get the truth, but are some people just incapable of putting 2 and 2 together and coming up with 4? How long has it been since logical reasoning (either inductive or deductive) has been taught in schools? Far too long, I would say!!!

    • States of emergency are temporary, not permanent. I betcha that after this “state of emergency” is declared over we are going to have to remind these
      DemocRAT Socialist Communists, one way or another, that they are not permanent. Believe me, they will use the “seriousness” of the situation to breach the 2nd Amendment further, and they must be stopped or this nation is toast, specially if by some freak of nature TRUMP loses the election and the DSCs hijack the Senate.

  7. ANYTIME that you meet a politician ask her/him ‘Why do you need to control people?’ Watch their facial reaction closely. They know at that moment someone knows their defect. This Governor has a major hidden problem. You NEVER want to hand over your control of your own life to someone who FEEDS upon controlling others. Vote this person out of office.

  8. Just remember that they can get away with on the state or local wait to see what happens if President Trump loses his reelection and the Liberal Leftist Socialist Democrats maintain control of the House and win the Senate.Look out America here martial law enforcement being on January 21,2021 and by April of 2021 a full blown civil war between
    the Liberal Leftist Socialist Fascist Communist Democrat controlled “Left Coast/NY-NJ-DC east coast” and the MIDDLE AMERICA.

  9. Yeah You Dumocrats go ahead and bring on Martial Law and lets get this Civil War started, so We can end Your Tyranny ASAP!

  10. Where do they find these idiots running cities and states? Under rocks maybe? They only want control and power. They’re not interested in the safety and health of their citizens. Limiting gun sales during a pandemic is the height of stupidity. Pathetic Putzes is what they are.

  11. two dumpacrapanywhere propaganda fear mongering sluts. who should be removed from office and spread out naked in the desert sands stacked over ant hills with molasses poured over them

    • I just find the followers of this Governor and the mayor of Champaign to be more Ignorant than either these two despots. How stupid can one get to listen to such a obvious power grab and be lead by the nose by a power hungry communistic despot ?? Talk about demonrat voters who are stone cold dummies… JEEZ!!!

  12. I think politicians in general have acquired the mentality that just because of the position they’re in that they can do whatever they want and that’s totally false. I’m not having any politician impose anything on me that I don’t agree with. There are a lot of common sense things we should be doing around this virus thing but politicians (democrats/liberal idiots) are stirring up a shit storm and panicking people and that’s bullshit!!! Yes, anything to take advantage and control. That’s their motto!!! It’s not gonna happen!!!

  13. Well, EXCUSE ME! I was unaware that the corona virus had anything to do with the Second Amendment! Democrats tend to consolidate two or more unrelated issues into one combined fiasco! When the outcome proves to be less than successful, the Democrats will still prevaricate their asses off in order to TRY to convince everyone that the outcome WAS a success!
