One of the victims of Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s overreaching executive orders is 77-year-old Owosso, MI barber, Karl Manke, who defied the governor’s shutdown order after he realized he was going to lose his business if he didn’t reopen.
After being denied twice by unemployment, Karl Manke said he had enough.
“The governor decided she was going to go another two weeks, and then another two weeks, and now this last time when she said we weren’t going to come back May 1st, that we were going to be secluded here until the 28th– it brought me to my knees.,” Manke said.
“I had a policeman stop by this morning, and I thought, okay here it is—it’s done. He said, ‘I love you,’ and walked out,” Manke said.
In early May, Owosso police cited Manke for a civil infraction and two misdemeanors. A court date is set for June 23, and he faces a more than $1,000 fine.
Governor Whitmer made it clear that Manke will face the consequences of defying her order.

In a fascinating new analysis published by Forbes, the researchers find data that supports what The Gateway Pundit has been saying for ages: COVID-19 is very dangerous to the elderly — especially in nursing homes — but not so much for everyone else.
Some 2.1 million Americans, which represents just 0.62% of the U.S. population, live in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. “According to an analysis that Gregg Girvan and I conducted for the Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity, as of May 22, in the 39 states that currently report such figures, an astounding 43% of all COVID-19 deaths have taken place in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.”
That’s nearly half of all deaths.
“Among states reporting their death totals, 42% of COVID deaths have taken place in long-term care facilities; we estimate the share as 43% for the full U.S. population, based on incorporating the demographics of the non-reporting states,” the writers say.

The UN Human Rights Chief has demanded that authorities in the United States take “serious action” to stop the police killings of unarmed African-Americans following the death of George Floyd.
46-year-old Floyd died on May 25th after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck for at least seven minutes, an incident that was caught on camera and caused outrage.
Numerous stores, businesses and even an affordable housing block in Minneapolis were looted and burned to the ground by rioters last night in response to the killing.
The United Nations’ Michelle Bachelet issued a statement today calling for immediate action.
“The US authorities must take serious action to stop such killings, and to ensure justice is done when they do occur,” Bachelet said. “Procedures must change, prevention systems must be put in place, and above all police officers who resort to excessive use of force should be charged and convicted for the crimes committed.”

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has defended his platform’s decision to fact-check US President Donald Trump for the first time ever over his comments on the upcoming election.
A spat erupted between Twitter and Donald Trump, one of the platform’s most prolific users, after Twitter said that two of his posts could be misleading.
The President accused the social media giant of harbouring an anti-conservative bias, a sentiment that was fuelled by unearthed anti-Trump tweets from Twitter’s head of site integrity.
Dorsey, who co-founded Twitter in 2006, wrote that the site chose to put a fact-check warning on two of Trump’s tweets because they may “mislead people into thinking they don’t need to register to get a ballot.”

Hollywood braindeads celebrated Wednesday as it emerged that Twitter is actively censoring the President of The United States and directing anyone who reads Trump’s tweets to a barrage of leftist opinionoverseen by a hardcore anti-trumper.
Here’s just a small selection of pointless out of work celebrities cheering the big-tech censorship:
Star Wars actor John Boyega has been praised for a series of social media posts speaking out against racism.
The first post, a tweet that reads, “I really f***ing hate racists”, was written in the wake of the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers.
The original tweet attracted more than one million likes on the social media website. When some people criticised Boyega’s use of a swear word, the actor remained defiant.
“This is my own personal account. I am not here for the kids,” he wrote back.
In a passionate Instagram Live video, Boyega continued to address the subject.
“That’s a continuous cycle, going on”, he said of the George Floyd killing, which has sparked protests in Minneapolis.
“I don’t live in the States, but I’m Black,” he continued. “F*** that. So I’ll say it again: f*** you racist white people. I said what I said. And if you don’t f***ing like it, go suck a d***.”
Footage has emerged from inside a UK hospital showing patients asking for attention but being ignored because nurses are too busy filming a tik tok video.
The video is seemingly shot by a person waiting to be seen, while nurses congregate through the entire corridor, messing around with mops.
Several other hospital staff are seen in the video standing around watching or filming the action themselves.

Starbucks’ retail chains are reaching out to landlords to renegotiate rental arrangements due to the “staggering economic cost” associated with the coronavirus pandemic, according to a statement issued by the company and reported by The Seattle Times.
“Effective June 1 and for at least a period of 12 consecutive months, Starbucks will require concessions to support modified operations and adjustments to lease terms and base rent structures,” the letter distributed earlier this month said, which was signed by Starbucks Chief Operating Officer Roz Brewer. “This is the worst recession since the Great Depression and far more devastating than the global financial crisis.”
However, landlords throughout the country aren’t happy with the announcement.
San Clemente, Calif. Starbucks landlord Leon Brooks received a letter asking for at least a year’s reduction in rent, according to The Seattle Times.
“I am highly disappointed, disgusted and angry,” he reportedly wrote back to the coffee giant. “Shame on you.”
House Republicans filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to block a system of proxy voting put in place during the coronavirus pandemic on the grounds that it is unconstitutional.
Proxy voting would allow House members to vote on another person’s behalf if they are not able to be physically present at the Capitol, an unprecedented exception for an unparalleled health crisis.
At least 59 Democrats have submitted letters to the House Clerk’s office to authorize their vote to be cast by proxy. Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers have said they will be in the Capitol to cast their votes.
Not a single Republican supported the measure as it passed earlier this month, arguing that the Constitution requires a quorum, or a majority, of lawmakers to be physically present in order to vote on measures, thus concluding that the proxy system is unconstitutional. Republicans also worry that the system concentrates too much power in the hands of only a few members.
