Republican Michigan State Representative Paul Mitchell ripped into Governor Gretchen Whitmer for bulldozing the constitutional rights of her constituents during his appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Rep. Mitchell is currently suing Governor Whitmer for violations of the U.S. and Michigan constitutions, as well as the state law.
While appearing on Fox News, Rep. Mitchell said that she has “decided to bulldoze the constitutional rights we have in the state.”
“Our governor has decided to bulldoze the constitutional rights we all have in the state,” Mitchell said. “For example, going across the state to visit your grandchildren was prohibited, now it’s allowed. But it can be changed.”
The representative continued on to blast Whitmer for changing the rights that the people of Michigan have on a “week to week basis” and closing off parts of stores while allowing the business to stay open in general.
“Any rights we have can be adjusted by the governor on a week to week basis, which she’s done in some areas,” added Mitchell. “So, even the right to go get medical care is limited. Your ability to go, as I said, up north to your house, to shop for certain things at points in time, she had actually closed off parts of stores because it was not appropriate to shop for paint for your house, for example.”
Mitchell also blasted the fact that you can currently get an abortion in the state, because she deemed them to be “essential,” but you can’t get medical care such as a knee surgery.
“I couldn’t get consultation for healthcare for my knee, but you could get an abortion,” said Mitchell. “She was making unilateral decisions that most of us in this country depend upon a legislature and a court system to do for us, but she used all of government, at this point in time.”
In the lawsuit Mitchell filed in a federal court in Grand Rapids, he said that “Michiganders can and do take reasonable, private action to protect themselves from infection without the need to shut down civil society.”
“Given that the projected surge has not occurred, there is no basis, either legally or factually, to continue any further mandatory lockdown orders.”
Governor Whitmer is currently being sued by a group of churches in the state who claim that her order violates the First and Fourteenth Amendments of the Constitution.
Under Whitmer’s orders, gatherings of two or more people who are not part of the same household are prohibited, including at religious services until May 28, 2020.
According to her order, religious institutions and their owners are exempt from legal penalty, but people who attend the services are not.
The lawsuit states that while “’neither a place of religious worship nor its owner is subject to penalty under section 20 of this order for allowing religious worship at such place,’ nothing in this provision applies to individuals attending a place or worship as clergy or congregants and does not apply to Plaintiffs.”
“This case seeks to protect and vindicate statutory and fundamental constitutional rights. Plaintiffs bring this civil rights action under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution and 42 U.S.C. § 1983, and for other statutory and constitutional violations, challenging Defendant’s EOs, acts, policies, and regulations which deprive Plaintiffs of their rights,” the lawsuit continues.
To rectify the situation, the lawsuit is asking the court to issue a permanent injunction against the order.
Michigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield and Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey are currently seeking legal action against Whitmer for extending the state of emergency in the state.
Brodd no longer lives at the Santa Rose home that was attacked.
Brodd testified last week that police were justified in keeping George Floyd pinned because he kept struggling.
The new family that lives there called the police when they were awakened by the group of black clad individuals outside their home shortly after 3 a.m.
Law enforcement believes that the individuals thought that Brodd still lived there.
Santa Rosa Police say 45 minutes later a hand statue at the plaza mall was vandalized w/blood and a sign saying “Oink Oink”. The substance is believed to be animal blood.

“Because Mr. Brodd no longer lives in the city of Santa Rosa, it appears the victim was falsely targeted,” police said in a news release.
Santa Rosa Police Chief Rainer Navarro through Brodd under the bus on April 13, issuing a statement saying “Mr. Brodd’s comments do not reflect the values and beliefs of the Santa Rosa Police Department.”
Approximatey 45 minutes after the home was vandalized, a hand statue in front of the Santa Rosa Plaza mall was also splattered with animal blood. The vandals, who match the description of the people who attacked the home, left a sign with a pig on it that read “oink oink.” The statue has no apparent message related to the trial, as it is dedicated to immigrant agricultural workers.
Damage to the residence exceeded $400, making the attack a felony, according to a report from KPIX.

A GoFundMe campaign to support the restaurant has raised over $20,000.
A heroic California restaurant owner blocked in a Los Angeles County health inspector’s car after he attempted to shut his business down for allowing outdoor dining, asserting that “if we can’t work, you can’t work.”
Carlos Roman, the owner of Bread & Barley in Covina, did not back down even after police arrived.
“He wants to come in here and say that no one can work, so he can’t work either,” Roman told the officer. “He decided to come today and take photos of the people outside and say that he was going to fine us,” he explained.
Roman refused to move his truck, telling the officer to go ahead and get her supervisor.
“This is what happens when people get desperate. I’m desperate. Who is going to pay her car payment? Who is going to pay my cook’s rent?” Roman asked the officer. “I want it to be hard on everyone. I want everyone to see how hard this sh-t is.”
The outraged owner demanded to know if the inspector and the officer got paychecks last week, asserting that his employees haven’t.
“You’re just doing your job right, we’re all in this together?” Roman asked the inspector. “When I go to the bank, can I tell the bank the health department said it’s ok and that I don’t have to pay you?”
“What do I tell my employees?” Roman shouted.
Roman is now facing two $500 fines for failure to comply and interfering with the health officer.

Hunter Biden’s Ex-Wife, Kathleen, Tells Him He is a Better Father Than Joe Biden Was
In an email to her ex-husband Hunter Biden, Kathleen Biden told her troubled former spouse that he is a better father than Joe Biden was.
The cryptic email was found in a trove of documents currently being reviewed in a joint effort by District Herald and the Nationalist Review, provided to us on Friday by a source who obtained them from former Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
“I want you to know that you are a great father – a better father than your dad. Your girls love you because you love them for who they are. You haven’t judged them, you have loved them for who they are. You listen and you make them and their problems important to you. You make them great because you allow them to be who they are without unfair expectations. You are patient, caring, and loving,” Kathleen Biden wrote. “I know you and I have struggled but your love for the girls hasn’t waivered. Remember how we use to joke that the girls didn’t have anything to survive to make them strong and interesting? Well, we gave it to them! They did survive it and they are stronger. Through it all they never questioned your love or commitment.”
Kathleen Biden asserted that the former Vice President “wasn’t perfect” as a father.
“I know you love your dad and I do too but he wasn’t perfect,” the mother of Hunter’s children continued. “No one is perfect. At your core, you taught our girls what was important. They are kind, thoughtful, open, curious, funny, compassionate and hard working. You were as much a part of that as I was in helping them grow. Don’t ever question whether you were as good a father as your dad. You were better, in every way.”
In response, Hunter wrote that he worries he has failed them. “Thank you for this it means everything to me. I worry so much that I have failed you all in so many ways,” he said.
Hunter also acknowledged that he will need to earn his children’s trust and respect back, though the reason is unclear.
“I know the girls love me- but I often wonder if they trust and respect me. I know it’s something I have to earn back. And I know that you are the best mother I have ever known. You have raised three incredible young women. We are so lucky to have them, and I am so lucky to have met you 23 years ago. Thank you,” he wrote.
