Michigan is Freed!/ Democrats Undermine Election

The state of Michigan has been freed from the tyrannical lockdown of its far-left governor Gretchen Whitmer. Breitbart News reported:

The Michigan Supreme Court on Friday struck down a 1945 law that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) has been using to keep the state locked down since April.

Whitmer has repeatedly extended a “state of emergency” for the past several months and pointed to a World War II-era law to do so, most recently lengthening it until October 27.

But today, the basis for the ongoing lockdown was ruled unconstitutional.

The Court concluded the Emergency Powers of Governor Act:

…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.

House Speaker Lee Chatfield hailed the decision via Twitter:

“The Supreme Court ruled today in agreement with the legislature that the 1945 law is unconstitutional,” Chatfield wrote.

“The governor had no right to extend the state of emergency over the Legislature’s objection. Our Constitution matters, and this was a big win for our democratic process.”

“Michigan is now unlocked,” Fred Wszolek, spokesman for Unlock Michigan told Breitbart News.

Unlock Michigan has been leading a petition drive to repeal the same 1945 law. On Friday, the group submitted 593,000 signatures to force a vote by the legislature, Mlive reported.

This is a major story and is great news. A court ruling also recently opened up Pennsylvania after its Democrat governor had locked down the state significantly.

The lockdown in Michigan was one of the most stringent in the nation and it turned Michiganders against Whitmer in large numbers. Nikitas3.com believes that this will redound to the benefit of president Trump and Republicans in Michigan on November 3.

Liberals Always Bend the Rules, and the Law

Democrats, liberals, leftists and progressives always seek to bend the rules and the law to their advantage.

In Kentucky, the state’s attorney general released recordings of the grand jury proceedings in the fatal March shooting of a black female named Breonna Taylor that involved three Louisville police officers.

But grand jury proceedings are supposed to remain secret, and for a reason. Grand juries are very specific legal entities that are separate from other juries. Wikipedia reports:

Grand jury proceedings are secret. No judge is present; the proceedings are led by a prosecutor; and the defendant has no right to present his case or (in many instances) to be informed of the proceedings at all. While court reporters usually transcribe the proceedings, the records are sealed.

Yet these Kentucky grand jury proceedings have been made public for one reason only – because Democrats, blacks, the Fake News media, liberals and leftists put on pressure to release them because progressives think that the law does not apply to them, that their case is so important that it is above the law.

Leftists are Undermining the Presidential Election

Democrats and their activist and media allies are doing everything in their power to undermine a free and fair presidential election in 2020. But this is nothing new. Since the 1960s Democrats have been promoting these ideas that undermine normal elections:

*Allowing illegal immigrants to vote.

*So-called “motor-voter” laws that automatically register you to vote when you get a driver’s license. This automatically registers illegal aliens to vote when they get licenses, as they are allowed to do in some states. The illegal alien is not supposed to vote, but many do, maybe in the millions.

*Online voter registration, which means that you do not have to go face-to-face with a voter registrar. This makes fraud much easier.

*Early voting, which takes voting farther and farther away from election day. And it gets earlier and earlier every year. Millions of Americans have already voted.

*No voter ID required, so that anyone can vote in your place.

*Same-day voter registration, which allows a person to register and vote on election day, and the vote is often counted without the registration even being verified.

*Mail-in voting, which allows citizens to vote without going to the polls. While absentee voting by mail is a good idea that has been around for a long time, widespread mail-in voting is ripe for fraud since ballots can be stolen and fraudulently filled out.

*There is a new tactic that is being used in more and more places called “ranked choice voting”, which is the most confusing and absurd thing that you have ever seen. Here is an explanation. TIME magazine reported:

Ranked-choice voting is an electoral system that allows people to vote for multiple candidates, in order of preference. Instead of just choosing who you want to win, you fill out the ballot saying who is your first choice, second choice, or third choice (or more as needed) for each position.

The candidate with the majority (more than 50%) of first-choice votes wins outright. If no candidate gets a majority of first-choice votes, then it triggers a new counting process. The candidate who did the worst is eliminated, and that candidate’s voters’ ballots are redistributed to their second-choice pick. In other words, if you ranked a losing candidate as your first choice, and the candidate is eliminated, then your vote still counts: it just moves to your second-choice candidate. That process continues until there is a candidate who has the majority of votes.

Imagine the complexity of this system. It will totally confuse both voters and those who count the votes, but that is the goal. This system is designed by progressives to create confusion and chaos.

And perhaps you have noticed something new that has emerged as election 2020 day nears – more and more Democrats are saying that we can’t count the votes and decide the winner on election day and that it may take weeks for the results due to a large number of mail-in ballots because of the China virus.

This is being done for a reason – to take the vote farther and farther away from a normal election and to create chaos so that Democrats can steal the election. Brteitbart News reported about one official, a Democrat (of course):

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold (D) on Thursday took to social media to call on the media to not report any election results on the night of November 3rd.

Griswold wrote in a series of tweets:

Our democracy cannot be held hostage to a ratings race. If you care about our democracy, you will protect it. Full Stop. We are in the middle of a pandemic and the President of the United States has telegraphed that he may claim victory on election night, even when millions of ballots will not have been counted. Indisputable facts: 1. This is no normal election. A record number of Americans will be voting by mail. 2. Election “night” will be dramatically different than ever before.

We need an UNPRECEDENTED plan from the media for how they will cover an unprecedented election. That is why I am calling on national media networks to pledge to #PressPause for democracy and: 1. Make NO projections on election night 2. Announce NO election results on election night. In the coming days, I will ask election administrators, voting rights organizations, media ethicists, corporations, religious leaders, and all concerned Americans to stand with me in demanding media executives #PressPause for democracy.

Griswold’s plea comes after the Democrat official made headlines when it was revealed that her office mailed postcards to non-citizens and dead people encouraging them to register to vote in order to cast ballots in the election. Griswold mailed the cards to a handful of individuals who are ineligible to vote, according to CBS4.

Democrats are terrified that Trump is going to win. Thus they need extra time to figure out how to steal the election. Period. End of story.
