LISTEN: Whitmer Defends Abortion During Pandemic, Calls It “Life Sustaining”

Appearing on a podcast with David Axelrod, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer defended abortion during stay at home orders, calling it “life sustaining”

Gretchen Whitmer:

We stopped elective surgeries here in Michigan. Some people have tried to say that that type of a procedure is considered the same and that’s ridiculous.

A woman’s healthcare, her whole future, her ability to decide if and when she starts a family is not an election, it is a fundamental to her life. It is life sustaining and it’s something that government should not be getting in the middle of.

MLive reports Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-at-home order can’t prevent a man from protesting out of a Detroit abortion clinic – as long as he practices social distancing.

Whitmer issued the stay-at-home order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. As of Tuesday, April 15, over 27,000 in Michigan have been afflicted with COVID-19.

Whitmer acknowledged in a court filing that Andrew Belanger, who was cited by police for violating her executive order, had First Amendment rights to protest. Belanger and others still have to stay at least six feet from others outside of their household when engaged in “expressive religious activities.”

A citation against Belanger for violating the governor’s stay-at-home order will be dismissed. The parties agreed to dismiss the federal case Belanger and two other men filed against Whitmer and Detroit police.

U.S. District Judge Janet Neff in Grand Rapids signed the order closing the case on Tuesday, April 14. Both sides are responsible for their own legal fees.

A week ago, Whitmer issued guidance regarding First Amendment protections under her stay-at-home order.

“Persons may engage in expressive activities protected by the First Amendment within the State of Michigan, but must adhere to social distancing measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including remaining at least six feet from people from outside the person’s household.”

Belanger was cited March 31 by Detroit police while he was preaching outside of Scotsdale Women’s Center. He was holding a pro-life sign and said he kept away from others.

UK Prince Harry says Trump is one of the ‘sick people’ running the world

Britain’s Prince Harry has blasted US President Donald Trump during a hoax call from pranksters, saying the US leader has “blood on his hands” and is one of the “sick people” running the world, according to British media.

Russian hoaxers impersonating Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg and her father, Svante, telephoned the prince on two separate occasions earlier this year at his luxury home in Vancouver Island, Canada, according to The Sun newspaper.
Harry reportedly slammed Trump for his environmental policies, stating, “I think the mere fact that Donald Trump is pushing the coal industry is so big in America, he has blood on his hands.”
“Unfortunately the world is being led by some very sick people so the people like yourselves and younger generation are the ones that are going to make all the difference,” he added.

Harry also told the fake Greta that she could “outsmart” the US president.

Greta has been asked to speak at several high-profile events, including at the United Nations (UN) and the US Congress, to urge immediate action against what she describes as a global climate crisis.

Back in December, the 16-year-old activist said talking to Trump at the UN Climate Change Summit in September would have been a waste of time since he would not have paid any attention.

Trump has dismissed climate change and is pulling the United States out of the 2015 Paris Agreement on global warming. Trump ridiculed the teenage activist in December after she was named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2019.

Trump Drops Hammer On Ilhan Omar, Backs Call For Investigation Into Spending!

President Trump dropped the hammer on Ilhan Omar and backed calls for an investigation into her spendthrift ways.

Trump retweeted a political ally, Charlie Kirk’s call to investigate Omar. Kirk said:

“Did you know: Ilhan Omar’s campaign is on track to pay her husband’s consulting firm $1.16 MILLION in 2020. Last year, while she was having an affair with her now-husband she paid his firm $523K.”

“How is this legal? She’s funneling money back into her own pockets. Investigate!”

From The New York Post:

Rep. Ilhan Omar is on track to pay the political firm founded by her new husband more than $1 million by the end of the year, campaign finance filings show.

In the first three months of this year, the Minnesota Democrat’s campaign paid the E Street Group $292,000 for advertising, fundraising, travel and other services, according to a federal campaign finance report filed Wednesday and obtained by the Star Tribune.

At that rate, the company would get $1.16 million from Omar’s campaign in 2020 — more than double the $523,000 it received for the whole of last year.

The firm was founded by Omar’s longtime consultant Tim Mynett, allegedly a former lover whom she married last month. The congresswoman announced their nuptials on Instagram.

Their relationship attracted scrutiny in August, when The Post was first to report that Mynett’s then-wife, Beth, alleged in court papers that he walked out on their marriage after admitting to having an affair with Omar and declaring his love for her.

Both Omar, 38, and Mynett, 39 — who were each married to other people at the time — denied the affair.

The claim prompted a conservative watchdog group to file a complaint against Omar with the Federal Election Commission. The FEC has taken no public action in regard to the complaint.

USA Today reports President Donald Trump signed an order late Friday threatening to impose sanctions on countries that attempt to bar the repatriation of U.S. deportees because those people have spent time in the world’s worst hot spot for coronavirus.

 

Underscoring the extent of the coronavirus in the U.S., some countries and immigrant advocates have called for a pause in U.S. deportations for fear that the international movement of immigrants could spread the virus to countries less equipped to handle it.

Guatemala briefly stopped accepting its own deported nationals from the U.S. last month because of the virus. While the country resumed accepting its own citizens, it is continuing to block Honduran and Salvadoran migrants deported from the U.S.

Trump’s order instructs consular officials to stop processing U.S. visas for countries in which the Department of Homeland Security finds is no longer accepting deportees.

It was not immediately clear if the order was aimed at any country in particular. Neither the White House nor the State Department responded to a request for comment.

Trump’s memorandum cites the coronavirus and the national emergency he declared last month as justifications for the move. Countries that deny or “unreasonably delay” the acceptance of their citizens from the United States during the coronavirus pandemic, the order reads, “create unacceptable public health risks for Americans.”

There were nearly 500,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S. as of Friday. Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador – all of which have significantly smaller populations than the United States – all had fewer than 500 reported cases.

Joy Behar Wants Trump Supporters Arrested, Co-Host Calls Them Racist Over Michigan Protest…

Joy Behar and the gang on The View crossed the line today and attacked Trump supporters for protesting the Michigan Governor’s restrictive lockdown.

Sunny Hostin said of “Operation Gridlock,” the Michigan protesters opposing Whitmer’s stay-at-home orders to be “racist” while Joy wanted them arrested.

“If you are indeed upset about the stay-at-home order, I can understand that because it is probably I think the most restrictive in the country, and people are very concerned about that,” Sunny Hostin said.

“But I guess I just didn’t understand the manner within which it was done – I thought rather than it becoming a stay-at-home order protest, it seemed to become some sort of racist protest.”

“Are you going to say ‘I don’t need a ventilator because I thought I should go out and defy the governor’s order’?” Behar said.

“They blocked an ambulance the other day. Can’t they be charged and arrested for that?”

“I understand the fact that, you know, they can’t get their veggies, but hello. We’re talking about this disease being way more infecting and worse than they even thought.”

“They’re watching Fox a little too much,” Behar continued mocking the protesters before turning her anger on Fox News:

“They’re watching Laura Ingraham, who tweeted ‘Time to get your freedom back.’ And then the brilliant Jeanine Pirro.”

“In early March, she was parroting Trump that the infection rate would drop as the weather warms.”

“I mean, this is who they’re listening to. So again, do you say I won’t get the treatment if I get the virus? That’s my question.”

Barack Obama Demands ‘Vote-By-Mail’ This November Because of Coronavirus!

“Let’s not use the tragedy of a pandemic to compromise our democracy. Check the facts of vote by mail,” Barack said in a tweet linking to an anti-Trump New York Times article titled, “Does Vote-by-Mail Favor Democrats? No. It’s a False Argument by Trump”

Thegatewaypundit.com reports: House Democrats have been pushing for vote-by-mail and scheming to legalize ballot harvesting after watching conservative districts in Orange County flip from red to blue in the 2018 midterm election.
The Democrats are using the Coronavirus as a vehicle to push for a nationwide vote-by-mail in an effort to steal the 2020 election.
On Tuesday Nancy Pelosi said on CNN that she was going to push for federally forced vote-by-mail in the 2020 election in the next round of Coronavirus aid.
The election is seven months away.
The Democrats’ plan for federally forced nationwide vote by mail, advocated for by the likes of Elizabeth Warren, where states would send a ballot to every registered voter, including inactive voters, creates a massive opportunity for voter fraud, the RNC said earlier this week.
Judicial Watch boss Tom Fitton sounded the alarm on the Dems’ ‘vote-by-mail scheme.

TOM FITTON: FRAUD: Left’s “vote by mail” abuse would blow up clean elections in November. The Pelosi/Clinton scheme would result in sending ballots to zombie voters, the end of voter id, and wide scale voter intimidation.

VIDEO Trump Says He’ll Immediately Deport Or Imprison Up To 3 Million Undocumented Immigrants DO YOU SUPPORT THIS?

President-elect Donald Trump made a plan to deport or imprison approximately 2 million and 3 million undocumented immigrants as soon as he is taking the workplace.
In an interview with CBS News, so one can air Sunday night, Trump said he could launch what can be the largest mass deportation attempt in cutting-edge records, promising to instantly deport some of the human beings similar to the file-placing figure that president Barack Obama finished over terms in workplace
“what we are going to do is get the humans which might be crook and have criminal facts, gang members, drug sellers, wherein a lot of these human beings, in all likelihood 2 million, it is able to be even 3 million, we have become them out of our united states or we are going to incarcerate,” Trump stated in the interview. “but we’re getting them out of our united states, they’re here illegally.
In announcing that 2 million to three million undocumented immigrants with criminal data live within the u.S., trump was repeating a declare he’d made in advance inside the campaign that the Washington post-reality-checked and decided turned into erroneous.
The migration policy institute, a nonpartisan think tank, estimates that around 820,000 undocumented immigrants have criminal information ― a parent that consists of many humans whose most effective conviction is crossing the border illegally. Beneath prosecutorial discretion pointers in the vicinity when you consider that 2011, undocumented migrants with minor crimes are in a few instances capable of avoiding deportation.
After his preliminary spherical of deportations and efforts at border security, Trump said, his management could assess its coverage at the ultimate undocumented immigrants dwelling right here.

Democrat Georgia State Rep. Breaks From Party, Slams Biden and Endorses President Trump’s Reelection

Democrat Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones has defied his party and endorsed President Donald Trump’s reelection.
Jones also slammed Biden, saying that his policies devastated a generation of African American families.

Jones endorsed Trump on Tuesday, praising the president for the economy, criminal justice reform, and his support for historically black colleges.

Speaking to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jones said that he has no plan to switch parties he just thinks Trump is doing a good job on certain issues.

“It’s very simple to me. President Trump’s handling of the economy, his support for historically black colleges and his criminal justice initiatives drew me to endorse his campaign,” Jones said.

“This is not about switching parties. There are a lot of African Americans who clearly see and appreciate he’s doing something that’s never been done before,” Jones added. “When you look at the unemployment rates among black Americans before the pandemic, they were at historic lows. That’s just a fact.”

Jones was especially pleased with the First Step Act and President Trump granting clemency to Alice Marie Johnson, after being lobbied to release her by Kim Kardashian.

“A generation of African American families have been devastated by draconian policies that Joe Biden supported and voted for when he served in the U.S. Senate,” Jones said in a statement to CBS 46. “A change was needed and President Trump took action.”

The chairwoman of Georgia’s Democratic Party, Nikema Williams, is outraged about the endorsement and called Jones an “embarrassment.”

“Never has that been clearer than this moment, when he chose to stand with the racist president who has made an all-out assault on Black Americans, who has tried to rip away American health care, and who has failed our country in its greatest time of need during the most important election in our lifetimes,” Williams said in a statement. “Vernon Jones doesn’t speak for Georgians, and neither does Donald Trump — which is why Georgians will send him home in November 2020.”

Jones described himself in 2008 as an “independent thinker and a conservative Democrat who supports faith-based initiatives, tough immigration laws and fiscal responsibility.”

Obama: ‘Biden Has Touched Us All’

U.S.—Former president Barack Obama endorsed Joe Biden for president in a touching, intimate video Tuesday, saying, “Biden has touched us all.”

Many were worried Obama wasn’t going to endorse Biden, but he came through for the DNC establishment, telling everyone how deeply and personally Biden has touched everyone he has ever worked with.

“Many leaders, um, you know, they, um, don’t rub you the right way,” Obama said. “But not Joe. Joe, see, he, um, touches everyone he comes into contact with, whether they want him to or not. He’s breathing down Trump’s neck in, um, in the race now, and I know he will overcome and grab a come-from-behind victory. I’m very fondle–excuse me–very fond of Joe, and with a stroke of luck, we’ll be able to lick Trump in this election as we grope about for the White House.”

Obama brought his patented brand of eloquent, hope-infused rhetoric to the speech, saying, “We can, um, smell a win this year.”

“Joe’s campaign is very touching, that’s what I’m, um, here to say. So don’t let a Trump victory sneak up on us — embrace Joe Biden in 2020.”

Rosie O’Donnell Gets Nasty With Trump, Crosses Line With Mental Illness Election Prediction…

Rosie O’Donnell is a national joke and a worldwide disgrace. Really – her own daughter has come out against her and that is not something you see in healthy families.

Rosie continues to take to any microphone that will have her and trash Trump – and her attacks are growing nastier.

But this time Rosie missed and hit Joe Biden instead – say what you will about Trump – he at least knows what in the hell he is talking about.

You may not like him, but you understand him. Can you say the same for Joe Biden? No, he seems lost.

From The Washington Examiner:

“I firmly believe that the heart of the nation is bigger than his mental illness, and people will rise to the occasion and vote him out,” O’Donnell said during an interview on stand-up comedian Marc Maron’s podcast. “That’s what I hope.”

O’Donnell said the 2020 election was “gonna be a landslide and take him out, that’s what I have to believe.”

A frequent critic of Trump dating back years, O’Donnell once predicted Trump would be arrested before the end of his first term.

“Yes, I certainly do,” O’Donnell said when pressed on that assertion. “I believe in America, I believe in our political system, and I believe we will right the wrong of the tyranny of Donald Trump.”

Trump was famously asked during a 2016 presidential debate about allegations of calling women “fat pigs.”

“Only Rosie O’Donnell,” Trump quipped.

During her time as co-host of The View, O’Donnell said Trump was not the self-made businessman he was selling to the people but rather a ” snake-oil salesman on Little House On The Prairie.”
