People aligning themselves with either the Democrat or Republican parties are part of the problem! Don't mistake Trump for a Republican. He's using the Republican party like a $5 whore to first get on, and now stay on the political map but make no mistake, he's a member, founder and the leader, of the Constitutional MAGA Party

She needs to stand trial for murder.
Break out the torches and pitchforks. Don't wait for the politicians to take action. They won't because they're part of the problem.

Michigan declares racism public health crisis, will require implicit bias training for state employees
Order creates Black Leadership Advisory Council

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed a new order and directive to address racism and to expand training for state employees.

Gov. Whitmer signed Executive Order 2020-163, which creates the Black Leadership Advisory Council. The governor also signed Executive Directive 2020-9, recognizing racism as a public health crisis and taking initial steps to address it within state government. Under the Executive Directive, the governor asked MDHHS to make health equity a major goal, as well as required implicit bias training for all state employees.


“Since I was sworn in as governor, I have made it a top priority to include more people of color, more women, and more members of the LGBTQ+ community at the table. We’ve been able to build a more inclusive state government, but there is more work to do. That’s why today, I am proud to create the Black Leadership Advisory Council of Michigan,” said Governor Whitmer. “We must confront systemic racism head on so we can create a more equitable and just Michigan. This is not about one party or person. I hope we can continue to work towards building a more inclusive and unbiased state that works for everyone.”

Related: Michigan to require implicit bias training for health professionals to address racial disparities

The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed, confirmed, and highlighted the deadly nature of pre-existing inequities caused by systemic racism. For example, in cases where race and ethnicity is known, the rate of reported COVID-19 cases for Black/African American Michigan residents is 14,703 per 1,000,000, compared with 4,160 per 1,000,000 for white residents, more than three times higher. And the rate of reported COVID-19 deaths for Black/African American Michigan residents is 1,624 per 1,000,000 compared with 399 per 1,000,000 for White residents, more than four times higher.

“These past several months have been difficult for all of us, but they have been especially tough for Black and Brown people who for generations have battled the harms caused by a system steeped in persistent inequalities. These are the same inequities that have motivated so many Americans of every background to confront the legacy of systemic racism that has been a stain on our state and nation from the beginning,” said Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist II. “That is why, today, we take the much-needed and long-overdue step of recognizing racism as a public health crisis. It is only after we have fully defined the injustice that we can begin to take steps to replace it with a greater system of justice that enables all Michiganders to pursue their fullest dreams and potential.”


The Black Leadership Advisory Council will be included among a set of diverse ethnic commissions within the state of Michigan. Although African Americans are the largest racial minority in the state, this Council is the first of its kind in Michigan to elevate Black leaders and representatives.

The Council will act in an advisory capacity to the governor and develop, review, and recommend policies and actions designed to eradicate and prevent discrimination and racial inequity in Michigan. To accomplish this goal, the Council is charged with:

  • Identifying state laws, or gaps in state law, that create or perpetuate inequities, with the goal of promoting economic growth and wealth equity for the Black community.
  • Collaborating with the governor’s office and the Black community to promote legislation and regulation that ensures equitable treatment of all Michiganders, and seeks to remedy structural inequities in this state.
  • Serving as a resource for community groups on issues, programs, sources of funding, and compliance requirements within state government in order to benefit and advance the interests of the Black community.
  • Promoting the cultural arts within the Black community through coordinated efforts, advocacy, and collaboration with state government.
  • Providing other information or advice or taking other actions as requested by the governor.
“During my time as a state legislator, it has struck me as odd that no ethnic commission existed for Michigan’s largest minority population in our state — the Black community. Working with a diverse group of people from across our diaspora, my colleagues and I last month introduced Senate Bill 1034 to create such a commission housed within the Michigan Department of Civil Rights, but it was sadly sent to the Senate Committee on Government Operations to languish,” Senator Erika Geiss said. “Governor Whitmer recognizes the importance of this issue as well and has taken executive action to create the Black Leadership Advisory Council, which I am proud to support. I look forward to seeing this commission come to fruition and ensuring its statutory status as with other ethnic commissions, so that our state can continue to tackle the issues that impact our Black brothers and sisters long into the future.”


Executive Directive 2020-9 directs MDHHS to work with other state departments to examine data, develop and plan policies, and engage, communicate and advocate for communities of color. The governor has directed that all state employees be required to take implicit bias training to understand the unconscious preferences we experience without intentional control and how it can impact others. The training is required for existing employees and must be completed within 60 days for newly hired employees.

“Implicit, unconscious bias exists within each of us, and as public servants we have a duty to understand how our bias can impact the lives of others,” said Governor Whitmer. “I am committed to leading by example and making sure state government is a model for equality, understanding, and fairness.”

Under Executive Directive 2020-9, data documenting differences in health outcomes among racial and ethnic groups in Michigan must be collected, analyzed, and made publicly available to help leaders implement equitable policies. Additionally, departments must understand how racial disparities in societal, environmental, and behavioral factors intersect to affect access to resources like good jobs, access to healthy and affordable food and housing, equitable transportation options, and quality public education.

The Michigan Coronavirus Task Force on Racial Disparities will work in partnership with departments to develop a plan that details how Michigan will eliminate the root causes of the inequities that cause disparities in health outcomes for our residents.

MDHHS has introduced an Equity Impact Assessment (EIA) tool to help prevent implicit bias from affecting the policies and practices the department develops to serve the community. The EIA guides leaders to think through the full implications of their decisions on minority populations and is proven to decrease systematic disparities and inequities in marginalized populations.

llinois Governor Pritzker Facing Indirect Civil Contempt Motion Seeking He Be Placed In The County Jail


1596666155803.png


Illinois Governor JB Pritzker is now facing an Indirect Civil Contempt Motion in the Darren Bailey lawsuit to include a request he be placed in custody in the county jail.

The motion is based on the fact the Governor has ignored the Court's prior orders and continues to issue Executive Orders as it relates to COVID-19.


The motion seeks the following:

A. That, Jay Robert Pritzker, be adjudged in indirect civil contempt of this Court and be required to show cause, if any he can, why he should not be held in contempt of this Court and punished for his willful and contumacious disregard with this Court's order;

B. That Jay Robert Pritzker be ordered to purge himself by rescinding the abovementioned executive orders instanter; and should he refuse, he be placed in temporary custody within the Clay County Jail until he purges himself by rescinding the above-mentioned executive orders;

C. In the alternative, the Court craft any other just sanction which compels Jay Robert Pritzker to purge his contempt.

D. That Jay Robert Pritzker be held liable for the Darren Bailey's attorney fees he has incurred in enforcing the willful disregard of this Court' s order;

E. That this Court enters any further orders which the Court deems just and equitable.

Gov. Whitmer extends coronavirus state of emergency through Sept. 4
Paul Egan, Detroit Free Press Published 2:23 p.m. ET Aug. 7, 2020 | Updated 5:12 p.m. ET Aug. 7, 2020

LANSING — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Friday extended Michigan's state of emergency through Sept. 4, amid continued high daily case numbers, ongoing pushback from Republican lawmakers and an accelerated petition drive to sharply curtail her emergency powers.

The state of emergency had been set to expire at the end of the day Tuesday.

Michigan's state of emergency should not be confused with the stay-at-home order, which Whitmer lifted June 1. A state of emergency does not by itself place any restrictions on Michigan residents, but it authorizes the governor to issue orders placing such restrictions, such as ones requiring mask-wearing or limiting restaurant capacity to 50%.

"We are in a crucial time in our fight against COVID-19, and we must do everything we can to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and the brave men and women on the front lines of this crisis from a second wave,” Whitmer said in a news release.

"I will continue to use every tool at my disposal to protect Michiganders from the spread of this virus. I want to remind everyone in Michigan to wear a mask, practice safe physical distancing, and do everything in your power to fight COVID-19.”

Friday's extension of the state of emergency is the latest in a series of extensions Whitmer has made unilaterally since May, when the Republican-controlled Legislature declined to grant an extension under the Emergency Management Act of 1976.


That refusal left Whitmer with only one major legislative tool in her toolbox — the Emergency Powers of Governor Act of 1945, which does not require the Legislature to sign off on a state of emergency.

Unlock Michigan, a group with strong ties to the Republican Party, has collected more than 100,000 valid signatures in the last three weeks on its way to a goal of 500,000 signatures in a bid to repeal the law, spokesman Fred Wszolek said Friday.


Under Michigan's provisions for citizens' legislative initiatives, iIf the group submits more than 340,000 valid signatures to the Legislature within the required time frame, the House and Senate could vote to repeal the Emergency Powers of Governor Act and Whitmer would have no veto power to stop the repeal.

Wszolek said Unlock Michigan expects to submit the required signatures before the end of October, and possibly sooner. More than 68,000 activists have asked for signature kits, he said.

Whitmer has expressed increasing concern about high coronavirus case numbers in recent weeks, though she said this week that new cases appear to have reached a new plateau, with daily cases in the 600s and 700s. Whitmer announced no new restrictions on economic or social activities at her news conference Wednesday.

Instead, she continued to urge adherence to measures announced earlier, especially stressing the wearing of masks.

Republican leaders have slammed Whitmer's orders as arbitrary and contradictory, most recently her July 29 announcement that the size of gatherings and indoor service at bars serving alcohol would be dialed back Up North, at the same time she announced Detroit's three casinos would be allowed to open at 15% capacity.

"Same day Governor allows Detroit casinos to reopen, she orders Northern Michigan and UP to go backwards," House Speaker Lee Chatfield said on Twitter.

"Science? Data? Sorry, but this seems more like political science."

More: Gov. Whitmer declares racism a public health crisis in Michigan

Sen. Tom Barrett, R-Charlotte, announced Aug. 2 that he had tested positive for the coronavirus, after hosting an Unlock Michigan signing event on July 18 that he said drew 580 people from 21 Michigan counties.


The signing event was billed as a drive-through, but Barrett acknowledged Friday that many exited their vehicles and mingled outdoors after signing the petition at a table. Photos taken at the event show Barrett, not wearing a mask, standing a few feet away from others in attendance, and in one case, reaching out to shake the hand of another man, who was also not wearing a mask.

Barrett said he was not aware whether state coronavirus contact tracers had shown any interest in the event.

According to an article in Healthline, there is no evidence that protests related to the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police resulted in an increase in COVID-19 cases, Barrett said.

"If the media insists the BLM (Black Lives Matter) outdoor protests have not at all increased COVID transmission, then certainly another outdoor activity wouldn't either, unless you believe the virus has a political agenda," Barrett said.

Whitmer this week halted in-person news conferences, switching to conferences held online. The switch was in part an effort to comply with a Whitmer order limiting indoor gatherings to 10, said Whitmer spokeswoman Tiffany Brown.

But she also cited the infection of Barrett, saying he had potentially infected "his fellow senators, staff, and members of the media."

That drew pushback from Republicans who noted Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist presided over the most recent Senate session Barrett attended, before speaking at a Whitmer news conference on Wednesday. Also, the governor took no similar action earlier this year after two House Democrats from Detroit, Reps. Tyrone Carter and Karen Whitsett, tested positive for the coronavirus.


Barrett "is not the first person to test positive in the Legislature," said Amber McCann, a spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, R-Clarklake.

Brown said Friday that Gilchrist was tested for the coronavirus and the test came back negative on Tuesday, the day before he spoke at Whitmer's news conference. As for similar actions not being taken after Whitsett and Carter tested positive, Brown said the infection of Barrett was only one reason for the change.

"This will always be about safety," she said.

Also Friday, Whitmer signed an executive order prohibiting employers from "discharging, disciplining, or retaliating against employees who make the responsible choice to stay home when they or their close contacts are sick."

She said she took the action partly in response to the recent expiration of the $600 per week bonus payment the federal government had added to state unemployment checks during the pandemic. Removing the $600 payment puts more pressure on people to return to work, even if they are sick, Whitmer siad

On Tuesday, Whitmer issued a directive to state agencies, including the Michigan State Police, to ensure enforcement of her orders related to the coronavirus pandemic, including ones related to wearing masks in indoor public spaces and crowded outdoor spaces, as well as capacity restrictions for bars and restaurants.

She said any violations of the order could negatively impact business licensing.
