Gov. Whitmer fumes after Michigan Supreme Court strikes down her coronavirus orders – Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) released a defiant statement in response to the state Supreme Court striking down her controversial coronavirus mandates on Friday, reminding Michiganders that her rules are still in place for another three weeks.

The Absurdity Of COVID “Cases” – Today’s headlines announced Donald and Melania Trump “tested positive” for covid-19. Another claims nineteen thousand Amazon workers “got” covid-19 on the job. Both of these pseudostories are sure to ignite another absurd media frenzy.
As always, the story keeps changing: Remember ventilators, flatten the curve, the next two weeks are crucial, etc.? Remember Nancy Pelosi in Chinatown back in February, urging everyone to visit?
