Michigan County Board Approves Resolution to Impeach Gov. Whitmer

A county in northern Michigan announced its support of impeaching Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Friday.

Members of the Kalkaska County, Michigan Board of Commissioners voted 4-2 to introduce a resolution that would call for the impeachment of Whitmer. It will be sent to the Michigan Legislature for consideration.

Many accuse Whitmer of abuse of power and unconstitutional actions amid the COVID-19 pandemic and have expressed outrage at actions taken to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Kalkaska County Commissioner David Comai said that Whitmer signed “unconstitutional executive orders” that were “the primary cause of the economic crisis Kalkaska County is experiencing,” and are grounds for impeachment, according to reports from WPBN/WGTU.

Michigan State Rep. Matt Maddock claimed that Whitmer had “Ignored court orders. Violated our Constitutional rights. Completely ignored due process and the legislature. Weaponized contract tracing databases to aid democrat campaigns. Caused the unnecessary death of thousands of our vulnerable elderly who died alone and scared in nursing homes,” when listing the reasons he believed she should be impeached.

Maddock, one of Michigan’s most conservative and outspoken lawmakers, has been critical of Whitmer’s actions during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement posted earlier to Twitter, he wrote, “Michiganders have been beaten down for too long. Restaurants losing dine-in customers watching their life’s work circle the drains. Thank you to my fellow legislators who are calling for impeachment hearings of @GovWhitmer #FreeMichigan #ImpeachWhitmer #MILEG @realDonaldTrump.”

Michigan Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield, a Republican, criticized the impeachment resolution in a Wednesday statement.

“We’re not the party that impeaches someone because we’re upset with policies that they’ve enacted,” Chatfield said. “I thought it was shameful what the Democrats did to President Trump last year and I would assume that any attempt by Republicans right now, with the current set of facts that we have to impeach the governor, would be on the same level.”

A petition calling for Whitmer’s impeachment on Change.org has received over 7,800 signatures as of Monday. The petition states that Whitmer’s refusal to allow doctors to use chloroquine as a coronavirus treatment made Whitmer “more than incompetent, she is deadly and who knows how many lives have been lost due to her ignorance.”

Under the new restrictions, Michigan residents are required to work from home, if possible, all college and high-school classes are to be conducted remotely, indoor dining is prohibited in bars and restaurants while movie theaters, casinos and stadiums remained closed. The restrictions are expected to remain in place until December 8.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
