Gov. Whitmer stripped of her emergency powers

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer was left angry on Thursday after Republicans stripped her of her emergency power which she had used to deny residents of their constitutional rights.

The Unlock Michigan initiative was approved by the State Senate on July 15 and passed by the House with a 60-48 vote along party lines.

“Yesterday was a great day for Michigan, and yesterday was anything but partisan politics,” Michigan Congresswoman Lisa McClain told “Fox & Friends First” on Friday. “It was the voice of the people saying enough is enough.”

Thegatewaypundit.com reports: Whitmer had enacted the Emergency Powers of Governor Act of 1945 during the early days of the pandemic to issue some of the harshest mandates in the nation. People in the state were so outraged by her authoritarian orders that there was an armed protest at the state’s Capitol.

“The governor had repelled a similar push to limit her powers in March 2020 when Senate Bill 1 made its way to her desk: The bill aimed to amend the state’s public health code by limiting orders from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to no more than 28 days of effect unless approved by both houses of the State Legislature,” the Fox report notes.

Whitmer vetoed the bill.

“Unfortunately, epidemics are not limited to 28 days,” Whitmer said in a veto letter. “We should not so limit our ability to respond to them.”


  1. How does the dangerous Demorat ideologue Whitmer get elected in a majority Republican represented state? It’s the unread urban block vote. The Demorats will do the same with national elections if they can!

    • Yes, ALL politicians are liars, she surely isn’t so pretty without her pig’s lipstick on. That photo of her rightly portrays her as an insane incandescent with rage after being stripped of her emergency powers. The Republicans really did it this time around – Bravo!!!!

  2. She’s incandescent with rage? Good. Now she knows how she makes Michiganders feel. Typical Democrat reaction when their authority is questioned.

  3. The main problem with ALL politicians, is that they will say and do anything to get elected and then only say and do whatever they have to to get re-elected. In between those points they play power games to suit themselves.
    In other words once they get into the club … They follow the club rules.
