MICHIGAN: TIME TO STAND UP!

Last week the Michigan Supreme Court struck down Governor Whitmer’s “legal” basis for practicing tyranny on the citizens of Michigan in the name of a “pandemic.”
Justice Stephen J. Markman, on behalf of the majority in a 4-3 majority that fell along party lines, wrote:
“We conclude that the Governor lacked the authority to declare a ‘state of emergency’ or a ‘state of disaster’ under the EMA after April 30, 2020, on the basis of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Furthermore, we conclude that the EPGA is in violation of the Constitution of our state because it purports to delegate to the executive branch the legislative powers of state government– including its plenary police powers– and to allow the exercise of such powers indefinitely.
As a consequence, the EPGA cannot continue to provide a basis for the Governor to exercise emergency powers.”
Whitmer had extended the “emergency orders” which had been in place since April, until near the end of October, and probably had every intention of extending them indefinitely.

A few days later, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced that she would no longer enforce the Governor’s edicts.
And while Nessel stated that her decision, as the highest law enforcement official in the State of Michigan, was not binding on other law enforcement agencies, several sheriffs throughout Michigan had already stated they would not enforce her edicts.
And The Detroit News reported that the Michigan Chiefs of Police Association was going to follow the Attorney General’s lead.
“If the attorney general says it’s over, then it’s over,” said Bob Stevenson, executive director of the association. (Source.)
But Governor Whitmer has decided she is still in charge and apparently above the law, as yesterday she issued new mask mandates and other mandates on public gatherings in a desperate attempt to remain in control of the public as their Tyrant in Chief.
The Daily Wire reports:
Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is moving forward with new health mandates despite a state Supreme Court ruling last week that struck down her extended emergency powers.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) issued new orders on Monday to keep in place mask requirements, limits on public gatherings, and other health codes put in place by the governor’s administration during the coronavirus pandemic.
The fresh mandates come days after the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that Whitmer lacked the authority to continue to enforce emergency health codes for the pandemic. (Source.)
So the only thing now forcing people to obey the edicts of Whitmer, is the will of the people themselves.
To you U.S. Citizens living in Michigan, what are you going to do now? You now have the law on your side, and your Governor does not.
Will you continue to obey her as slaves, or stand up and exercise your freedoms?
The entire country is watching you now. Time to take off your masks, open up your businesses, congregate, and act as free people!
