I Was At Operation Gridlock

Last week, I chose to exercise my First Amendment rights and participated in the protest at the State Capitol.

When I first arrived at about 11:10 am, Walnut Street was backed up all the way to I-496. I drove the “back roads” to the State Museum and got on Allegan Street, heading eastbound toward the Capitol building. I was in the middle of three lanes and moved about eight feet in ninety minutes.

Gov. Whitmer's Lies and Leftist Ties

Governor Whitmer has gone too far, and she thinks she can get away with it. Sadly, that’s not surprising coming from someone who continues to spread lies about last week’s rally despite those lies being repeatedly debunked.

On Monday, Whitmer’s administration signed a contract to start sending Michigan COVID-19 patients’ health data to a private Democratic data and political organizing firm. She was going to pay them hundreds of thousands of your tax dollars to contact you and your family members, ask you deeply private questions about your health, and pass that data along to her political cronies to store in a giant new database. For your benefit of course!

Leadership by Insult

Governor Whitmer’s arbitrary and capricious lockdown of the state’s economy has made it illegal for Michiganians to go to work, and roughly a million of our friends, family members and neighbors have lost their jobs because of it.

If true, Michigan was on track to experience the most devastating COVID-19 outbreak on the planet.

We’ve got some questions for the Governor. We bet you do, too.

COVID-19 infection rates are rising more slowly, public health officials are talking about lights at the end of the tunnel, and models show Michigan hitting it’s viral “peak.” That’s good news and suggests that we’re moving in the right direction.

Meanwhile in Lansing, Governor Gretchen Whitmer has extended and expanded her lockdown order, keeping Michigan workers off the job site and preventing them from feeding their families.

Freedom Alert: Legislature Has a Critical Role During Pandemic

Late last week, Gov. Whitmer asked for an astonishing 70-day extension to the state of emergency she declared on March 10, that is set to expire today. Part of her supposed rationale was so the Legislature wouldn’t have to meet frequently. It’s for their own safety, of course.

A lot of dramatic actions have been taken in the name of safety lately. And while many of these are reasonable responses to the coronavirus pandemic, suggesting the legislature forfeit its constitutional role as the people's voice, is not.

In defense of the Legislature's governing role in coronavirus crisis response

This column first appeared in Crain's Detroit Business.

For the strength and safety of our state and its citizens, the partisan handwringing over the Michigan Legislature meeting this week and anytime in the future should end.

Stuck at Home? Join us In the Trenches - Quarantine Edition!
