Gretchen Whitmer: The National Poster Child for God-Awful Leadership

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

This woman is a national menace. – The brain-dead, malevolent bullying by Michigan Governor Eva Von Whitmer is tearing that state apart like none other in the nation.

While free states like Texas, South Carolina, Florida and Georgia are opening their economies back up, yesterday, this plastic-faced aspiring South American strong woman urged her state legislature to pass a resolution extending her irrational statewide lock-down for another 28 days. What she got instead was a massive demonstration in which thousands of freedom-loving Michiganders gridlocked traffic in downtown Lansing for hours while another group of them forced their way into the state capitol building and staged protests in the house and senate galleries.

Instead of extending Herr Whitmer’s “state of emergency” order that expired at midnight, the house of representatives approved a resolution to prevent an extension and limit the terms of any future orders issued by Whitmer to no more than 15 days. House members also approved a resolution authorizing Speaker Lee Chatfield to sue the Governor if she tried to extend the state of emergency via another executive order.

From a report by Channel 4 in Detroit:

 “We believe the law is very clear on this,” Chatfield said. “That’s why every extension since 1976 has come through legislative approval, because that is what the law requires. We followed the law today. We want to partner with the governor next week. We don’t want this to have to go to court, but should she reject our vote, that’s where we’re going.”

[End]

The state senate approved the house measures later in the day, and Herr Whitmer predictably promised to veto them. She also then issued an executive extension of the state of emergency order for 28 days. This is key, since her stay-at-home order does not expire until May 15, but requires the existence of a state of emergency to remain in effect.

To be fair to the Strong Woman, Michigan has been hit fairly hard by the Wuhan Virus, recording 41,000 infections and almost 3,800 deaths. However, just as in many other states, the outbreaks have been heavily focused in big cities like Detroit and in poorly-regulated nursing homes.

But Michigan is a largely rural state, and a big frustration to many residents is that the Governor makes virtually no effort to intelligently differentiate between the densely-populated areas and areas with extremely low density. The manifest stupidity of banning things like the selling of seeds, mowing lawns and the use of motorized boats on Michigan’s lakes – but not sailboats or kayaks – has also caused outrage among the more independent-minded members of the state’s population.

Making matters even worse, Herr Whitmer has responded to every protest effort with condescension and promises of increasing crackdowns, refusing to recognize the validity and constitutional grounding for most of their arguments. She has become the literal national poster child for god-awful leadership in this crisis.

How this abusive, Soros-puppet ideologue managed to be elected Governor in a state with GOP majorities in both houses of the legislature will forever remain one of the great mysteries of our time. The bad news is that she isn’t up for re-election until 2022. The good news for Michiganders is that, while her plastic face remains pasted firmly on her noggin, her ideological mask has come completely off. She will have a hell of a time convincing Republicans who no doubt voted for her in 2018 to repeat that bit of stupidity in 2022.

Morning Joe Agrees to Serve up a Powder Puff Interview With Biden

The Evening Campaign Update

MSNBC and the Biden Campaign are coordinating approved questions and facial expressions as you read this. – News broke late Thursday that the circus clowns at MSNBC’s Morning Joe program will serve as the platform on which Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden will roll out his version of his ummmm…’interactions’ with Tara Reade when she was on his senate staff in 1993.

How Morning Joe got this gig over and above all the myriad CNN and MSNBC programs that were no doubt raising their hands and shouting “pick me! pick me!” at the Biden camp is anyone’s guess. Possibly it’s because Morning Joe is the lowest-rated daytime TV program on any cable news channel not named CNN. Possibly it’s because Biden has the hots for Mika or because he just loves Joe Scarborough’s pompadour hairdo and Church Lady good looks.

Whatever the reason, the presumptive Democrat nominee will be awakened and dressed by his handlers early Friday morning and shoved in front of his basement camera so that his abusive wife Jill can help guide him through the answers to the pre-approved questions that will no doubt be scrolling on a handy teleprompter. This should be god-awful TV, but it will be like watching a train wreck unfold in slow motion – you won’t be able to look away.

Can’t wait.

In other news on this rapid-fire Thursday…

– President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House today that he’d be glad to bring General Mike Flynn back into his administration. No doubt the corrupt reporters in the room all got the vapors on that one;

– The President also said he won’t need to pardon General Flynn because “he’s been exonerated.” Boom;

– Mr. Trump also said that he has seen intelligence that gives him a high degree of confidence that the coronavirus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology – though he would not go into detail when pressed for obvious reasons;

– The hospital ship USS Comfort sailed out of New York Harbor today. The ship had been docked at Pier 90 since March 30. The Navy says that during its time in NYC the hospital ship treated a grand total of 182 coronavirus patients, all of whom were discharged over the past week;

– Meanwhile, the hastily-constructed, 2900 bed field hospital in NYC’s Javits Center is in the process of being decommissioned and shut down after having been used to treat a grand total of 1094 patients;

– and finally, we had this from Catherine Herridge:

Only in an America saddled with an utterly corrupt Department of Justice and FBI could this Strzok guy still be walking around a free man. This must change, and soon.

That is all.

What Biden’s Deafening Silence About Tara Reade Really Means

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

How completely dishonest is Nancy Pelosi? – Today, she said she was “satisfied” with the way Joe Biden has responded to the Tara Reade sexual assault allegations against him.

To be clear, Joe Biden has yet to say a single word about the Tara Reade sexual assault allegations against him.

Your demented, despicable, disgusting, disgraceful, depraved Democrat Party in action.

Oh, but it gets better. Thursday morning, #FireChrisHayes spent hours trending on Twitter. Shockingly, it wasn’t trending due to outraged Trump fans going after the corrupt MSNBC host. No, no, no.

It was trending because Hayes missed the Media Matters/DNC talking points memo that has told every corrupt media outlet for 42 days now to completely ignore the Tara Reade story. That’s not just advice or a suggestion, mind you: That item on the official talking points memo literally says “Thou Shalt NOT Mention the Tara Reade Story” verbatim. It’s like a commandment for atheist Democrats or something.

Anyway, Hayes obviously missed the memo, and this clip was the result:

Thus was MSNBC’s wall of silence on the Tara Reade story broken. Loyal MSNBC viewers who have spent the last 3 years lapping up Rachel Maddow’s various Russia Collusion conspiracy theories immediately flew into a veritable Twitter frenzy, making Mr. Hayes persona non grata in their book unless and until he either takes it all back or invents a Russia Collusion conspiracy theory of his own. Given that he has already done that on numerous occasions, it is certainly not beyond the realm of possibility.

This media-constructed vow of omerta on this accusation would be hilarious if it weren’t such a serious matter to Ms. Reade. Her story is extremely credible in the context of the very criteria set up by the whole #MeToo movement: She has never varied from the details, she filed a formal complaint at the time it took place, and numerous friends and family members have come forward to confirm that she told them about the incident over the years.

By contrast, the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford against Justice Kavanaugh had none of these supporting elements. NOT ONE. Yet, every corrupt media outlet in America gave them non-stop coverage not for hours or days, but for WEEKS.

Now, put yourself in Creepy Joe Biden’s shoes for a moment. If you were innocent of what Ms. Reade alleges, wouldn’t you have immediately jumped in front of the nearest TV camera to deny it in the most vigorous terms, filled with moral outrage? Would you have even considered sitting silent on the matter and refusing to do any interviews unless the interviewer promised not to raise the question for 42 long days while the accusation continued to sit out there unaddressed?

Because that’s what Biden has done. Not for a day, or for a week, but for 42 DAYS since Reade first raised the accusation. For those keeping count at home 42 days is the same as 6 weeks. A full month and a half since this awful man was accused of one the most awful things any man can be accused of, and he just sits there silent on the matter.

There are two very believable possible reasons for this silence. Either Biden’s silence is the silence of a guilty man, or it is the silence of an elderly, clearly impaired and rapidly declining man who honestly has no memory of who Tara Reade is or what she is talking about.

I’d put my money on the latter. Biden honestly cannot say that he did or did not do what Ms. Reade alleges he did for the simple fact that he has no memory of it either way. Hell, it became clearly obvious on the campaign trail that he barely remembers what he did this morning, and often doesn’t even know what state he happens to be in at any given time. Expecting him to confirm or deny something that took place 27 years ago is just asking too much.

Nevertheless, this is the guy your Democrat friends want you to believe is the best pick to be your next President. Given that, maybe you should be more careful in choosing your friends.

That is all.

New Revelations in the Mike Flynn Case Prove it’s Time to Stop the Madness

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Maria Bartiromo has good sources. – This sets her apart from Sean Hannity, Greg Jarrett and Sara Carter, the Tick-Tock brigade who have spent the last two years promising Hannity’s listeners and viewers that indictments of the bad actors in the coup cabal were always just around the corner.

Bartiromo didn’t promise that, but if you remember, she did tweet this on Sunday evening:

The case against General Flynn has not been dismissed, but so much new information has come to light since Monday that it is now blatantly obvious that he was, as his attorney Sidney Powell continues to state categorically, set up and framed by the corrupt cabal operating at the top of the DOJ and FBI in early 2017.

The latest tranche of information came yesterday in the form of previously un-released emails and hand-written notes that conclusively demonstrate that the FBI’s goal in the initial interview of Flynn was to set him up:

In a series of tweets last night, former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy points out that, even after their clear effort to entrap Flynn at that initial Jan. 27, 2017 interview, FBI agents Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka told then-Director James Comey and Dep. Director Andrew McCabe that they did not believe Flynn had lied to them, and apparently recorded that impression in their original 302 filing on the interview (which the FBI continues to claim was somehow “lost”). Comey has in fact stated this in public testimony.

McCarthy continues:

Seems worth reminding: for all the elaborate perjury trap planning, violation of protocol, and dissembling about 302 interview report, FBI did not think Flynn lied and thus never sought to charge him while Comey & McCabe in charge.

Charges were filed only months later by Team Mueller, under circumstances where there is good reason to believe they told him if he didn’t plead guilty, his son would be charged with a felony.

Judge [Emmet Sullivan] should vacate the plea and put onus on DOJ and FBI to tell us whether they’d feel good about going forward with a public trial of this case, so everything that was done and said, and why, can be laid bare. I think hell would freeze over before that. But let’s see.

[End]

As a reminder, and as the notes released yesterday confirm, the entire entrapment effort was based on a phone call that Flynn took with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the Trump Transition in December, 2016. During that call, Kislyak raised the issue of outgoing President Obama’s recent imposition of new sanctions on Russia and expulsion of many of their “diplomats” (most of whom were no doubt spies) over allegations of Russian interference in the recent elections.

On the call – which was surreptitiously and probably illegally recorded by the FBI under one of its ill-gotten FISA warrants – Flynn advised Kislyak not to get into an escalating tit-for-tat with the Obama Administration. The notes released yesterday between Strzok and Pientka [Correction: The notes appear to have actually been authored by Bill Priestap, who was Strzok’s boss at the time of the entrapment effort.] reveal their plan to not play the recording of the call for Flynn, but rather to try to entrap him in a lie. This is because they knew they did not really have a case that Flynn had violated the Logan Act, and so they hoped they could build a case that he had lied to federal investigators.

As Comey and others have stated on the public record – Comey said it under oath to a congressional committee – no one at the FBI believed at the time that Flynn had in fact lied to Strzok and Pientka. Which is why Mueller and his American Gestapo thugs ended up coercing a guilty plea out of Flynn by threatening to abuse his son.

This is what was taking place under the imprimatur of the American system of “justice” in 2016 and 2017. This is the kind of clear and repugnant abuse of power that William Barr was brought in as Attorney General to identify and remove from the system. This is the kind of despicable deception of the court and abuse of the public trust that Judge Sullivan has allowed to take place in his courtroom for years now, as General Flynn has been bankrupted and forced to sell his family home.

When is enough enough? When will someone in a position of authority finally, at long last put an end to it and let this man who served his country honorably for more than 30 years get his life back?

McCarthy lays out the obvious solution: Sullivan should allow Flynn to vacate the obviously-coerced plea, which would then allow Barr to respond by withdrawing the charges.

At that point, the punishing of the real bad actors in this case should begin in earnest.

Just as I went to post this piece, President Trump issued the following tweet:

That’s certainly true, and it is fair to note that the President himself has the power to end this ongoing travesty of justice. What’s it going to take for you to act, Mr. President?

That is all.

Oil is not the Only U.S. Commodity in Trouble

Guest Piece by Nathan Kaspar

A good deal of this audience follows DBDailyUpdate for updates on the oil market. Much beyond Shale Oil, the broader commodity market is very sick. No, not with COVID-19, but from the ongoing lock-down of the national economy. President Trump took action yesterday to address meat packing plants staying open, but food production is much more complex than simply slaughtering animals and packaging the meat to go to the grocery store.

The Oil and Food industries were forever linked in 2005 with the passage of the Renewable Fuel Standards. This mandated certain blending levels of ethanol into our gasoline. While support of this is key if you are running for president and want to win the Iowa Caucus, turning half of the nation’s corn crop into fuel is dubious even if the government weren’t largely subsidizing it. Over the last 15 years though, the food markets have largely stabilized and reached “new normal” for how, how much, and what crops we farm to support the ethanol, human food, and animal feed industries.

The problem with this food and fuel link means that when there is a problem on the 90% side of the gasoline equation, the 10% side (Ethanol) is going to get cracked like a whip. Just like our nation’s oil producers are stuck with a surplus of oil with nowhere to put it, Ethanol producers also have no place to store additional production. As “stay at home” orders went from 2 weeks to months, Ethanol producers have had to change from slow-down, to shut-down, to extended furloughs. This is having a dramatic impact on food commodity prices, and it isn’t for the better.

Those prices can be found at the chart linked at the bottom of this piece.

The connection between ethanol and commodity prices is through distiller’s grains (both wet and dry). The byproduct of ethanol production is extremely high in protein and fat, and is sold in it’s wet form to feed lots or dried and sold to feed producers and dealers. These animals can’t simply eat whole corn in their diet as a substitute, so the result is that any commodity with protein in it is trading MUCH higher than last year.

The numbers for DDGS on the linked USDA chart are not valid. While there may be some long term flex contracts being fulfilled, most traders are simply listing (NQ) for DDGS. Most feed companies have been told that they can’t even think about taking delivery of DDGS until the 1st week in June at the earliest.

Some examples from the USDA chart of note:

Cottonseed Meal. $320/ton now vs $260 a year ago.

Bone meal is $335/ton vs $230 last year.

Corn Gluten Meal (byproduct from making corn syrup) is $582 vs $400 last year.

Wheat Mids, $140 vs $95 last year.

Corn prices, however, are terrible (trading at $102 vs $128 last year). This is only going to get worse as the ethanol shutdown continues. With half the nation’s corn crop going to ethanol every year, take 2 months out of that production and that’s 1/12th of the nation’s corn that is going to sit in a silo. Commodity prices are only starting to reflect it, and the cost of feeding animals is going to get much, much worse before the situation resolves itself.

This could very likely have long-term ripple effects through the harvest season in fall through November. Just in time for the election.

COVID-19 will likely be gone by the summer, but the shock-wave from the (largely unjustified IMHO) economic shutdown of the entire country is going to be felt for years.

If you have freezer space, put some steaks in it now. The people who are feeding the animals you hope to eat in 3 or 4 months are looking at the feed prices and trying to decide to sell off now, or allow their animals to be malnourished. Feed Lots with captive animals are having to pay exorbitant prices for their feed, and aren’t going to be able to pay ranchers enough at market to justify putting the cows on the trailer.

The time to completely re-open markets was 3 weeks ago. If you have the ear of a politician who supports the lock down, you might want to let them know how they are killing the food supply.

In New Tweet, Bill de Blasio Goes Full-on Hitler [UPDATED]

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Going full-on Hitler is never a good look, Mr. Mayor. – Holy cow, it’s hard to even know what to say about this latest tweet from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Just take a look at it and then contemplate its implications in the context of the long, sorry history of political leaders who have previously decided it was time to start “rounding up the Jews” in their own cities or countries:

If nothing else, the utter and complete lack of self-awareness on display here is stunning, even shocking.

Of course, the media will try to studiously ignore this since de Blasio is a Democrat. But try to imagine the uproar that would justifiably resonate throughout the nation’s news media if such a tweet or statement targeting “the Jewish community” were to be issued by any Republican mayor, governor or member of congress. It would be epic.

And note that the use of the term “the Jewish community” betrays the fact that Mayor de Blasio views those of the Jewish faith to be somehow separate and apart from “normal” New York society.

This is LITERALLY HITLER, y’all.

Image may contain: 1 person

Shocking. I don’t even know what else to say other than that.

UPDATE: By contrast, here is the tweet the Mayor issued to Muslims in his city last week at the beginning of Ramadan:

Image

ummmm…doesn’t that look to you as if he is actually encouraging Muslims to congregate in large groups?

Despicable. And shocking.

The Inescapable Conclusion: General Mike Flynn Was Framed

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

You could never make this stuff up, folks. Never in a billion gazillion years. – During what had to have been the most ironic “Town Hall for Women” event in world history yesterday, given the two participants’ history of serially abusing women, the Pantsuit Princess spent about a minute and a half bestowing her formal endorsement upon Quid Pro China Joe Biden. Hilariously, the elderly, clearly impaired and rapidly declining presumptive nominee of the Democrat Party actually appeared to nod off on camera for about 15 seconds while the Fainting Felon was droning on:

Continuing to run this declining man out there in front of the cameras by his staff and his craven wife is disgusting. This is elder abuse, folks. There are laws against this stuff. Is there no one on earth who actually cares about Joe Biden as a human being? The evidence available to us on the public record indicates the answer is ‘no.’

Speaking of evidence on the public record… – The law firm that formerly represented General Mike Flynn (which also happens to be the law firm in which former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder is a partner) just suddenly and completely coincidentally realized this week that it had been illegally withholding 6,800 pages of potentially exculpatory evidence in the Flynn case and turned it all over to the court of Judge Emmet Sullivan yesterday without prior notice.

Why, it was like, totally just a “communications error” according to the firm, Covington and Burling, y’all. The firm assures us that the sudden “discovery” of this mass of documents had nothing at all to do with the fact that, last Friday, the Justice Department itself had released what current Flynn attorney Sidney Powell believes to be a treasure trove of exculpatory evidence, likely including emails and other communications between DOJ lawyers and the original Covington and Burling lawyers who worked on the case.

Think about it: If the DOJ treasure trove contains emails between those parties that had not already been turned over to the court by Covington and Burling, that would be clear evidence that the firm had been withholding relevant documents that should have been turned over years ago. So, presto changeo!, the firm suddenly “finds” 6,800 pages of relevant documents that had been withheld for years and blames it all on a clerical error. Nothing suspicious about this at all, folks – it’s all totes normal and stuff, or something.

Is everyone beginning to understand now why General Flynn decided to fire these lawyers last year?

Apparently growing weary of all of the lawyerly shenanigans that he has allowed to continue to take place in his court for years now, Judge Sullivan responded to Covington and Burling’s latest muck-up by ordering the firm to examine all of its files one more time and come back to his court on Monday, May 4 and swear under oath that it has now turned over every document in its possession that is in any way relevant to this case. The evidence available on the public record indicates that the Judge has a better chance of winning the Mega-Millions lotto than he does of getting an honest response from this firm.

Sullivan is not the only guy who is tired of all the nonsense. Crusty old Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, who chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee during the first two years of this travesty of justice, sent a letter over to Attorney General William Barr on Monday, accusing former Acting AG Oily Rod Rosenstein of obstructing the Judiciary Committee’s previous inquiries into the DOJ’s conduct of this case, and urging Barr to make all documents related to the case public as soon as possible.

Here’s that letter:

Image

Image

The inescapable conclusion to come to, given all of the evidence that we now have on the public record, is that Sidney Powell is exactly right when she says that General Mike Flynn was entrapped and framed. He was framed not by some Mafia outfit, but by an utterly corrupt FBI and DOJ whose senior personnel were functioning just like some Mafia outfit. Even worse, it is beginning to appear as if Flynn’s own original lawyers may have actually been working in cooperation with those corrupt FBI and DOJ personnel who, remember, were all tied into the Mueller Investigation and all the rampant corruption that entailed.

This is an epic, disgusting scandal for the ages. If Judge Sullivan, after the revelation of all of this monstrous deception and chicanery taking place in his court, cannot at long last summon the personal integrity to summarily dismiss this case, then the time has well and truly arrived for President Trump to issue a full and complete pardon to General Flynn.

And then, just for fun, the President should make every leftist head in America explode simultaneously by re-hiring General Flynn, not as his new National Security Advisor, but to replace the worthless, corrupt Christopher Wray as Director of the FBI.

That, folks, would be real justice.

Trump Invokes the DPA to Protect the Nation’s Food Supply Chain

The Afternoon Campaign Update (Because it’s too Early to Call it Evening)

On Tuesday afternoon, President Trump made a crucial move to protect the nation’s food supply chain. Faced with the closings of a number of food processing plants around the country – some of the largest of which, under the Smithfield name, are owned by Chinese interests – the President invoked the Defense Production Act to order food processing plants to remain up and running in order to ensure the nation’s supermarket shelves remain stocked with meats and other food.

Naturally, the Twitter perpetual outrage mob that has been actively praying for people to start going hungry so that we will have rioting in our streets  immediately knee-jerked to idiotic reasoning such as this from the mentally-impaired Jennifer Rubin:

Other leftist talking points you can find in response to Ms. Jacobs’ tweet include these gems:

– He’ll use the DPA on Tyson, but not to get more testing kits made! (Of course, he hasn’t needed to use it to get test kits made since so many great U.S. companies voluntarily stepped up to the plate to do it.)

– Workers have died in these plants!!!! (No, they haven’t.)

– What about Tyson’s liability??????? (He’s going to sign an EO to take care of that issue.)

And on and on the inanity goes. Expect to see all of these moronic talking points rolled out this afternoon by Juan Williams on The Five.

This is absolutely the right action for the President to take given the state of play right now. The U.S. population has taken all of the restrictions related to the government’s response to the Wuhan Virus quietly to this point, largely because of the various stimulus bills designed to mask all the financial hardships and the fact that no one is going hungry because of it to this point. But that peaceful acquiescence and the increasingly tiresome “we’re all in this together apart” messaging would go down the tubes in a hurry if the pork, chicken and beef suddenly disappears like all the toilet paper suddenly did back in March.

You want to see massive civil unrest in this country like Jennifer Rubin and her fellow DC dimwit brigade are wishing for? There is no surer way to bring that about than through large-scale interruptions in the food supply chain.

This is the right move at the right time by President Trump. All else is just so much noise parroted by a pack of critics who never missed a meal in their privileged lives.

GOP States vs. Democrat States: The Differences are Very Clear

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

With Texas Governor Greg Abbott now moving fairly aggressively to reopen Texas and its economy (the 10th largest on earth), the differences in approach between Republican governors and Democrat governors are now becoming increasingly stark.

Abbott now joins Republican governors like Brian Kemp in Georgia, Henry McMaster in South Carolina, Ron DeSantis in Florida, Kristi Noem in South Dakota and Kevin Stitt in Oklahoma in lending a sense of urgency to getting businesses reopened and people back to work, rescinding stay-at-home orders in the process. Noem, along with Republican governors in 6 other states (Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, Utah and Wyoming) in fact never even issued such an order for her state.

Unsurprisingly, not a single Democrat governor showed similar restraint. Democrats literally live for the chance to lord political power over common people, and the Wuhan Virus provided the best such opportunity most of them have ever had to do so. As New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy told Tucker Carlson with a smile on his face recently, he “wasn’t even thinking about the Bill of Rights” when he issued his own order, and there can be little doubt that most, if not all, other Democrat governors also never gave such arcane concepts as individual freedoms a second thought. Drs. Fauci and Birx had advised governors to use their judgment in ordering their people to stay at home, and by God, the judgment of every Democrat was to knee-jerk to such an order.

Today, as Republicans are now rescinding the orders they issued, here are the actions we have seen in recent days from Democrat governors around the country:

Virginia Governor Ralph KKK Coonman Northam – On April 15, he extended his order for the closure of “non-essential” businesses to May 8. On April 23, he extended his ban on “non-essential” surgeries for another week (there sure is a lot of “non-essential” stuff going on in Virginia, huh?). On March 31, he extended his stay-at-home order through June 10. Truly, this a man on a mission.

Michigan’s plastic-faced Strong-Woman Gretchen Whitmer – After earlier extending her stay-at-home order through May 15, announced on Monday that she wants the legislature to step in to further extend it for another 28 days. Whitmer claims to have the power to do this herself (power she has exercised, rightly or wrongly, already on several separate occasions) but after receiving pushback from members of both parties in the legislature, she is now looking for political cover.

California Governor Gavin Newsom – While Newsom has surprisingly performed fairly reasonably during this crisis – with notable exceptions, like getting burned when he purchased thousands of Chinese respirators that don’t work – it is important to note that his own stay-at-home order doesn’t even have a planned expiration date. In mid-April, he rolled out 6 requirements that must be met in order for him to begin rolling that order back. As of today, those requirements have not been met, and aren’t likely to be met anytime soon.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom WolfExtended his stay-at-home order through May 8.

New Jersey Governor Phil MurphyOn Monday announced that his own indefinite stay-at-home order would remain in place “until further notice.” At the same time, he outlined a gradual plan for reopening that hinges almost entirely on the current false media narrative about “more testing.” In other words, he’s really enjoying this exercise of authoritarian power and has no plans to give it up anytime soon.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo – What can you say about this guy? His feckless lack of leadership and preparation have been largely responsible for this outbreak across the United States, and the media-directed national panic that led to so many needless draconian restrictions across the country, as governors of both parties failed to realize that their states were not like New York, not at all. Cuomo still, to this day, has not shut down the petri dishes on rails that are New York City’s subway cars. To. This. DAY. He got caught short on ventilators because, in 2015, he made the decision to forego buying 15,000 of them at bargain prices, spending the money instead on nebulous “climate change” nonsense. He has utterly and completely failed to protect senior citizens living in the state’s nursing homes, which have been the centers for a huge portion of New York’s massive COVID-19 death toll.

Naturally, Cuomo’s performance in this pandemic has made him a folk hero to the corrupt news media and most Democrat voters, and he is a virtual shoe-in to be re-elected to an unprecedented fourth term in office this November, 2022.

Holy crap.

It’s hard to be optimistic about America’s future when voters keep electing and re-electing Democrats to positions of power. Granted, Republicans aren’t a hell of a lot better, but as we have seen during this epidemic given to us by the ChiComs, they at least exhibit some level of respect for the rights of their citizens, and observe the need to take those into consideration while also taking actions necessary to protect the public.

Where the respective governors of each party are concerned, the contrasts in approach are in fact very stark and unambiguous.

Keep that in mind when you cast your votes in November.

That is all.
