Courts Thwart Gretchen Whitmer’s Plan to Keep State in Lockdown Until After Election

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s now becoming clear that one of the main deciding swing issues of the 2020 Presidential Election is going to be COVID Lockdowns. Incredibly, Democrats are now openly trying to leverage pain and suffering caused by the very policies they have been advocating for since the crisis began. 

This week a Michigan Supreme Court ruled in favor of the people, effectively rebuking efforts by the state’s Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer to impose a new state-wide lockdown meant to ‘tackle’ COVID-19.

Earlier this month, the court struck down Whitmer’s initial decree to extend her COVID lockdown into the spring of 2021, but Governor’s office was determined to keep the state under lockdown and appealed for a stay of the court’s ruling.

It appears that a desperate Whitmer had hoped to delay the Court’s ruling going into effect for a further 21 days – until after the General Election on November 3rd, but it now looks like the Court has seen through this partisan tactic by Democrats and proceeded to reject Whitmer’s attempted delay on Monday.

This drama confirmed what many had already suspected – that Democratic politicians have been trying to keep their states under lockdown until after the election, effectively increasing the amount of economic and social pain and suffering – a disingenuous election strategy designed to blame President Trump for all of the economic damage caused by state-imposed lockdown policies.

It is obvious from the Governor’s own statements what her real intentions were – using the brute force of her office to overturn a Court ruling in favor of the people over an authoritarian executive power..

PJ Media reports:

This latest drama comes just weeks before the big election, as Michigan, a key battleground state in the upcoming Presidential race, prepares for Nov 3rd.

This Democratic Party strategy of ‘maximum pressure’ on the American people is also being conducted at a national level as well, as evidenced this week after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi  (D-CA) led calls to stop the President’s $1.8 Trillion Corona virus Relief Bill.

The partisan move was so obvious that even pro-Democrat network CNN pushed back against Pelosi during her segment with Wolf Blitzer yesterday. The CNN anchor’s questions were met with a stinging response by Pelosi who was clearly upset at being asked to justify her party’s controversial decision to hold up relief ahead of the election. Watch:

Strategy Backfiring

It is unconscionable that politicians would be using the current crisis in order to impose restrictions on citizens in order to blame the crisis on their opponents and thus leverage votes in a general election. But this appears to be exactly what is happening. Of course, if this tactic backfires on the Democrats, it will provide a much-needed bounce to the incumbent President Trump in the close battleground states.
