Call them globalists, tyrants, power hungry liberals or just out-of-control and overreaching politicians, but whatever name you choose, they have finally pushed many law-abiding American citizens right past the point of "I don't give a d*mn."
THERE IS AN EXPLOSION COMING............
Thursday in Michigan, residents are once again arming up, and protesting the overreach and outright Nazi-esque mandates of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, dubbed by President Trump, that "woman" governor.
The executive orders by Whitmer, arguably some of the strictest within the country, have caused an uproar and outcry from residents that just want to go back to work and be able to live their lives normally, without threats of force and violence against them for daring to think they are "free" citizens entitled to their constitutional rights.
Thursday's protest against the unconstitutional stay-at-home orders will not be the first as Reuters explains:
Whitmer recently extended the state's stay-at-home order - one of the strictest in the United States - until at least May 28 to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and the respiratory disease it causes, COVID-19.
The protest is organized by Michigan United for Liberty, which says it is a nonprofit with nearly 8,000 members, organized and formed in response to Whitmer's first stay-at-home order in April, which it views as unconstitutional.
Hundreds of protesters, some armed, gathered at Michigan's State Capitol building in Lansing on April 30 to protest against Whitmer's request to the state legislature to extend emergency powers to combat COVID-19.
Whitmer is a perfect example of the dictatorial nature of Governors across the nation with their attempts to grab more and more power, while taking more control of people's lives, all while violating their constitutional rights claiming they are doing it for "the good" of the people.
The example comes in the form of a 77 year old barber that had it right up to the eyeballs with being forced to keep his shop closed with the state deeming it "non-essential." Fact is that shop was "essential" to the owners livelihood and life.
After Whitmer extended her stay-at-home orders, the 77 year old, Karl Manke, reopened his shop anyway and started cutting his clients hair again.
So the state went to a judge asking for permission to shut his shop down against his wishes, and the judge said no, not without the proper legal procedures which includes holding a hearing.
What did the Michigan government do? They bypassed the court and all legal procedures by suspending his barber license and his shop license without any due process.
State regulators on Wednesday suspended the license of a 77-year-old Michigan barber who insisted on cutting hair despite an order to stay closed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Karl Manke has pledged to keep his shop open “until Jesus comes.” A judge declined the state's request to shut down his shop Monday without first holding a hearing. Regulators took a different path by suspending his barber license and his shop license.

This comes after a Texas salon owner, Shelley Luther, was arrested and imprisoned for daring open her salon to pay her bills. The governor in Texas, spoke up against that action, then signed an executive order retroactively eliminating jail time for violating the state’s coronavirus restrictions.
In that case the Texas Supreme Court ordered Ms. Luther freed.
“Throwing Texans in jail who have had their businesses shut down through no fault of their own is nonsensical, and I will not allow it to happen,” Abbott said in a statement on Twitter.
“That is why I am modifying my executive orders to ensure confinement is not a punishment for violating an order. This order is retroactive to April 2nd, supersedes local orders and if correctly applied should free Shelley Luther.”
We are seeing stories like this pop up throughout the country as Americans are getting sick and tired of having their guaranteed, constitutional rights violated.
This executive orders are unconstitutional, or in the words of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, "unlawful," as they struck down the order by Governor Tony Evers' administration to stay at home.
Wisconsin’s Supreme Court struck down the state's “safer at home” order Wednesday, saying Democratic Gov. Tony Evers’ administration overstepped its authority when it extended the order through the end of May.
The court ruled four to three in a case brought forth by Republican lawmakers that sought to block the order issued last month by Evers’ top health secretary, Andrea Palm.
All future lockdown orders must go through the legislature, the ruling said. The court denied a request from Republicans for a six-day stay, instead striking down the order immediately.
That ruling followed protests held at the Capitol building in Madison, Wisconsin, in late April, as shown in the image above.
We see liberal Hollywood personalities and politicians all siding with the unconstitutional orders, yet the optics of how law enforcement are handling the enforcement of these orders.... are not good at all.
Example: The NYPD slamming a mother, who has a toddler with her, to the floor of the Brooklyn subway to handcuff her because she wasn't wearing a face mask properly. The onlookers can be heard yelling to the cops, "she has a kid with her!"
That type of abuse, and optics, is what will cause Americans to rise up and say enough. Many already are, and we fully expect to see more and more protesting citizens standing up for their rights, and helping others stand up for theirs.
Now we are starting to see local headlines like "Resentment Builds When COVID-19 Reopening Rules Apply To Some Businesses, But Not Others," with many business owners thinking"well, if that place can be open, then mine should be allowed to be open as well."
If that is what people in California, unarguably the most liberal state in the nation, are feeling, just imagine how people in other states are responding.
These are people that do not want a government handout, do not want to collect unemployment benefits, even if they were eligible for it. They would rather work and earn their money to keep food on the table a roof over their head.
Considering the price hikes still being seen at the grocery store, those businesses are very, very "essential" to them and their employees.
COMING TO A HEAD.......... IT IS ABOUT TO BLOW
We have seen the commentary on chat forums, social media and even in our own comment section, showing people are done, just finished with their state government's tyranny and "unlawful" orders,and apparently the courts have so far backed "the people" over the government in most cases.
There seems to be a general "feeling" that something is definitely coming to a head, a tension opening a wide gap between "we the people" and "them the tyrants....errrrr.....sorry, state leaders."
This can also be seen some of the headlines:
• ‘A pressure cooker’: Pa. governor aims to contain GOP revolt
• Big police presence expected at Michigan protest of stay-at-home order
• Businesses Chafing Under Covid-19 Lockdowns Turn to Armed Defiance
• Tensions over restrictions spark violence and defiance among protesters as Trump pushes states to reopen
Those are just the tip of the iceberg, but we also see how this whole issue has become a political one as well. While many might say it should not be a political issue, that ignores the reason why the states run by liberals have far stricter, more tyrannical and more controlling rules than the states run by conservatives.
Far left liberals vote for nanny-state policies and politicians that are so far to the left they think the constitution is just some "old" document, ready for the shredder, and many of them have stated such.
Look at this leftist headline from NBC: "Michigan coronavirus protesters shout 'liberty!' — as right-wing rhetoric weaponizes freedom." The sub-header pretty exemplifies the mindset of all liberals, with "What might happen if we were to understand liberty as a type of freedom that holds us accountable for the welfare of all Americans?"
How the heck do you "weaponize freedom?" What does that even mean? Only a liberal would be able twist themselves into a pretzel to try to justify that one.
The point here is that people are getting angrier with each passing day that state governments keep them under house arrest.
Things are coming to a head and if the commentary we have been seeing is any indication, if the lockdowns last much longer, freedom loving Americans are about to blow.
The resulting explosion will be heard around the world.
