I have a friend who is a pastor at a church in Kenya. He has requested prayer over the flooding and mud slide situation. Fortunately, he was able to move his family to a house on higher ground, but that obviously is not financially sustainable. Still, his faith in God’s faithfulness is strong. Please keep our brothers and sisters throughout the world in your prayers.
Michigan House Doesn’t Extend State of Emergency, Votes to Sue Governor
The Michigan House of Representatives on Thursday voted against extending Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s state of emergency for another 28 days, voting instead to file a lawsuit against her.
Whitmer’s initial state of emergency order, which is different than her stay-at-home order, expires on Thursday.
Speaker Lee Chatfield was authorized to sue the governor, saying Whitmer’s “unchecked and undemocratic approach” is a poor strategy, according to ABC12.
“The current status quo relies on one-size-fits-all edicts that unfairly punish millions of people across the state without giving them any recourse or voice in the process,” Chatfield remarked to the station. “The people deserve a better solution, and we can provide it.”
Meanwhile, the state House passed a resolution that would limit her state of emergency declarations to 14 days.
It comes as protesters gathered outside the state Capitol in Lansing.
WDIV in Detroit and Reuters reported that some of the protesters carried firearms, while some held flags or signs.
“This is the people’s house, you cannot lock us out,” one person said.
“We want Michigan open, we want Michigan back to work,” Jason Howland, one of the protest organizers, told Fox 17. “We put the event together, we put it on Facebook, and we heard that they were taking down events that had to do with protests or rallies against the wishes of Whitmer,” he said.
“Governor Whitmer, and our state legislature, it’s over with. Open this state,” Mike Detmer, a Republican U.S. congressional candidate running for the state’s 8th District spot held by Democrat Elissa Slotkin, told the crowd. “Let’s get businesses back open again. Let’s make sure there are jobs to go back to.”
State Sen. Dayna Polehanki, a Democrat, wrote that “men with rifles” were in the Senate gallery, “yelling at us.”
Whitmer, a Democrat, has faced severe backlash for her stay-at-home order, one of the strictest in the nation, which was extended until May 15. It includes not allowing people to travel to other homes under most conditions and bars the sale of items deemed nonessential at many stores.
The order was designed to curb the spread of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, a novel coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19. Michigan is one of the hardest-hit states, with more than 40,000 reported cases.
Elon Musk announced Friday that he’s selling “almost all” his physical belongings.
The billionaire Tesla CEO tweeted that he “will own no house.” He currently owns at least seven houses worth over $100 million total.
Musk also used Twitter to continue to rail against government shutdowns amid COVID-19, and added that he thinks the stock price of Tesla is “too high,” which appeared to trigger a selloff Friday morning.
Billionaire and prolific Twitter user Elon Musk is rethinking his attachment to the material world — and said a first step wil be selling “almost all physical po sessions.”
He also said that he thinks the stock price of Tesla is “too high” — a tweet that was followed by a sharp drop in the share price of the electric car manufacturer. Tesla’s stock was down 9.3% as of this writing.
Musk followed up with a tweet that his girlfriend, songwriter and producer Grimes, is mad at him.
His remarks came amid a broader tweetstorm on Friday morning. Musk, who’s known for his eccentric online presence, also continued his weeks-long rant against government-enforced shutdowns in response to COVID-19 outbreaks.
*Mom’s Note: The globalists will use every opportunity to push their agenda, too. People will be so worn out and ready for some “peace and safety”, they will accept the costs….even if it costs them their freedom and perhaps even their souls. However, I think American patriots still have a little fight left in them.
World in Chaos: Excessive taxation caused massive protests in Boston, which led to the American Revolution. The Storming of the Bastille in France led to the French Revolution. COVID-19 may be the next tipping point for global anarchy and revolution. Economic forecasts that already suggest the coronavirus pandemic will cause the worst economic crisis since […]
