Last Updated on November 5, 2022 Gretchen Whitmer, the Democrat governor of Michigan, has attempted to whitewash her policy that put Covid-19 patients in nursing homes. Whitmer was one of several Democrat governors who implemented this plan, as did Pennsylvania’s Tom Wolf and New York’s disgraced former governor Andrew Cuomo. The plan led to higher death rates in states that followed this policy, while Whitmer’s Administration has specifically been accused of covering up deaths.
Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer says nursing homes were not forced to take COVID-19 patients. pic.twitter.com/I77g6PDxNJ When asked if she regretted her decision regarding nursing home policy, she blamed her Republican opponent Tudor Dixon for spreading lies. “My opponent continues to tell people that nursing homes were forced to take Covid patients. They were not. They never were,” Whitmer told Fox 2 in Detroit.
Contrary to the governor’s statement, it has been well documented that she had much to do with Covid-19 patients in nursing homes. Even PolitiFact , a left-leaning fact checking site, confirmed as such. According to PolitiFact, “Whitmer issued an executive order on April 15 that required nursing homes with available capacity to create a dedicated unit to isolate residents with COVID-19 and accept COVID-19 patients discharged from hospitals.”
PolitiFact’s article also added that certain nursing homes were to be designated as “regional hubs” and made to take in more infected people who were unable to be properly cared for and isolated from others.
Whitmer’s initial executive order came on April 15, 2020. By the time PolitiFact wrote the above article in March 2021, approximately 15,000 people died with Covid in the state of Michigan. Around one-third of those deaths occurred in nursing homes.
Remarkably, Whitmer’s recent interview is not the only time that she has attempted to deny her culpability for the nursing home policy. […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
