by Shari Dovale
Hundreds of people took their protest inside the Michigan Capitol building in Lansing on Thursday, with some shouting, “This is the people’s house, you cannot lock us out.”

The Michigan House of Representatives declined to extend Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s state of emergency another 28 days, and instead voted on Thursday to authorize Speaker Lee Chatfield to sue the governor, saying Whitmer’s “unchecked and undemocratic approach” is not the best way, ABC 12 reported.
California Governor Gavin Newsom was forced to back down on his threats to close all of the State Beaches after a week of controversy. Newsom decided Thursday only to close beaches in Orange County, though it had been widely reported that he intended to close all of the state beaches.
Bill Melugin of KTTV, who broke the story — suggested that Newsom was being less than honest about his policy and that he had, in fact, backed down.
Oh. So according to the San Diego mayor’s chief of staff, Governor Newsom was less than honest with us on TV a short time ago. https://t.co/BxHIP1srTM

Thousands are expected to rally outside the state Capitol in Salem on Saturday.
“The situation here in Oregon is very, very dire. And so we’re hoping with a big turnout and with the picketing, that will at least tell the governor that she’s got to pay closer attention to what people are feeling here in Oregon,” their spokesperson, Adam Ellifritt, told Fox News.
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) expects his citizens to blindly follow his demands that they stay at home, while fuming over their questions asking where his billionaire wife has disappeared to. It is reported that she has fled the state for their $12.1 million equestrian estate in South Florida, defying his orders.
Ah, those pesky serfs.
During a Friday afternoon briefing on the coronavirus response, Virginia Health Commissioner Norman Oliver said Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam’s “Phase One” coronavirus response plan, which involves business closures and social distancing, could last for as long as two years.
After weeks of being locked inside their homes, the people are questioning their government’s narrative, and finding them wanting.
The powers-that-be, namely the Governors, are battling the citizens over lifting the restrictions and allowing them to get back to work. Many Americans are seeing this as a long-term economic crisis, for which the government could take advantage and make the people too dependent on them.
There are even discussions that several people are afraid that the “cure” will wipe out more Americans than the Virus itself.
A new study found that the coronavirus mortality rate could be as low as 0.1 percent, “similar to that of flu.”
A few states have begun to lift the burdensome restrictions, such as Georgia, whose Governor, Brian Kemp, announced Thursday that the state’s shelter-in-place order would be lifted for most residents at midnight. However, the order will remain in effect for the elderly and “medically fragile” until June 12.
More Protests are planned for this weekend throughout the country.
