Michigan Supreme court rules for barber in lockdown case

Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer just got a nasty shock from the Michigan Supreme Court. It turns out that she’s not above the law.

And her opponent, courageous 77-year-old barber Karl Manke, is reveling in the victory.

The New York Post reports:

A 77-year-old Michigan barber won a legal battle with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer over her coronavirus shutdown orders — in a stinging unanimous decision of the state Supreme Court.

“It is incumbent on the courts to ensure decisions are made according to the rule of law, not hysteria,” Justice David F. Viviano wrote Friday, MLive.com reported.

It was a stunning rebuke for Whitmer, who has taken a hard line on coronavirus shutdowns, while ignoring her own lockdown and social distancing restrictions during recent protests. President Trump has been particularly irked by Whitmer – he frequently criticized her overreaching regulations on Twitter during the last few weeks.

After reopening his barbershop, Manke famously said of Whitmer: “either Jesus comes, they cut my hands off or she resigns.”

For his trouble, he was fined thousands of dollars and relentlessly attacked as reckless on left-wing cable news and Twitter.

Now that Manke has won his case, and liberal commentators are justifying the mass gathering of people for protests, do you think that they’ll apologize to Manke for smearing him?

  1. I’m glad the Supreme Court finally stood up and did the right thing all courts should be making their decisions according to the law, not political agendas.

      1. Yes agree. The Democratic Party is not the Democratic Party of years ago. They are a mod squad just
        Like Pelosi husband was in California. Take control of everyone and have no laws so they are always protected from their actions. They all need to be imprisoned. Back to Clinton and Obama administration.

      2. Are thrown out of our country ,as those types of people do not know how to live in a free country , but they sure as hell know of ways of destroying one , when left alone to do as they please , and that is the kind of crap that needs to end.

    1. Right! The laws are given for a good reason. TO BE OBEYED! Governors like Kentucky’s Andy Beshear is a power glutton just like the Michigan govenor!

    2. The Rule Of Law Prevails. Now let this ‘Progressive Over Reaching Gov. RESIGN. She is not the representative of the people. Her agenda is hurting the people of Michigan. Show her the door with her bags packed………. Should she NOT RESIGN — Then VOTE HER OUT BY A LANDSLIDE = DISGRACE…!!

    3. I agree! adly some judges are obama placed judges who cover for his agenda and care NOT for America!

    4. Now the barber needs to sue the state of Michigan and the Governor and the money he was fined should be returned to him. No wonder Michigan is asking for a bailout from the president. No way. They have a chance to re-open their economy and put people back to work that produces revenue for the state, yet the governor is so ignorant she doesn’t understand economics. Too bad Michigan residents doesn’t recall the governor.

    5. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE SUPREME COURT TO ALL THESE DEMOCRACT MAYORS AND GOVERNORSTHAT WANT TO DEFUND POLICE LAW AND ORDER. STOP THESE DEMO CRAT LEADERS IN THERE CITIES AND THERE STATES.THIS MUST STOP NOW. IF THESE DEMO CRACT LEADERS WANTS THIS TO HAPPEN OUR COUNTRY WILL BE A STAND STILL HAVE NOTHING ANYMORE. WE WILL BE LIKE VENASWELLA AND CUBA GET A PETTION TO HAVE PEOPLE SIGN THIS AND PUT IT INLAW.THEY CANT STOP POLICE. THIS IS THE UNITES STATES OF AMERICA PEOPLE LETS STOP THIS NOW.WE WILL HAVE NO COUNTRY IF JOE BIDEN AND HIS PARTY WIN IN NOVEMBER WE MUST VOTE ALL THESE DEMCRACTS OUT OF CONGRESS NOW BEFORE THEY DESTROY OUR COUNTRY AND FREEDOM. TRUMP MUST WIN IN 2020. WE THE PEOPLE WANT CAPITALIST NOT COMMUNIST.KATH

  2. The media on the left are not journalists, they are activists. They don’t want truth they spew hatred for whites day in and day out. America has now really see who the true racists are. It’s the whole damn Democratic Party. May God open these thugs eyes

    1. Yes, civil war is inevitable, employees of the MSM are unlikely to survive the first day of the civil war

    2. I I totally agree with you where the media is concerned. They are not journalist . Journalism is about truth and facts and we sure don’t get the truth from them they are sucking up to the left. As PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS FAKE NEWS.

      1. Yes his fine must be returned with quadruple interest, out of the governor’s own bank account. Her annual governor’s salary is probably $300,000. She could afford to pay the barber $275.000, it is a droplet in the bucket for her, a chunk change, she won’t feel no pain.

  3. He is my hero. Thank you for standing and fighting for justice for all.❤ he deserves a big apology. ❤❤❤🙏🙏🙏praying for all Americans to be treated the same equally. NO one is not essential.

    1. Nice to have the Supreme Court to hold up the law some of the governor’s have let the covert19 to go to head and then think they have total control over the people. Maybe know they will get the message that they are not God and act like a human being should. Thank You Supreme Court for going by the law, God Bless You.

      1. But this is only the Michigan Supreme Court, not the US Supremes. Howver, it should give some impetus to others to do the same, and perhaps the courts will do the right thing there, too, though I will not hold my breath. Love that MN governor now wants US taxpayers to pay for damage He is responsible for, huh? No National Guard, wants to defund the police, allowed the destruction running to what is just now conservatively estimated to be 55 mil-I am sure it will be much much more than that. He has excoriated Trump, refused to call out the National Guard, had the police stand down, and allow the thugs to have their way——watch closely as to which states ask for and receive Fed help-remember in November.

        1. TRUMP DONT GIVE THESE DEMO RATS PARTY A DIME. THEY DESTROYED THERE STATES. AND THEY WANT TO GET RID OF TRUMP. ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.TRUMP IN A LANDSLIDE IN 2020.GOD BLESS AMERICA AND GOD BLESS OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP WHO WE 60 MILLION VOTED FOR. GET RID OF THESE DEMORATES VOTE THEM OUT.

    2. yes he DOES! but will never get from Whitless or any of the Democrats, funny how the protesting cured COVID19 and Whitless doesn’t follow her own executive orders standing inches/shoulder with protesters no 6 feet between her and them. Disgusting!

      1. Everybody knows that Whitless’s laws only apply to the peons, NOT the elite of the government.

  4. The Michigan Governor got what she deserved. The democrats want everything their way, but don’t want to listen to anything that doesn’t agree with their concept of life. They need to go back to church and listen to the word. Jesus died for us even for those who don’t want to admit it.

    1. The demoncats want to destroy our republic in order to create a socialist state. After dealing with the ”The National Socialist Party of Germany” and “The United Soviet Socialist Republic” of Russia back in the the 1930s & 1940s, you
      would think that lessons would have been learned. Apparently not.

  5. Happy to hear the decision of the Supreme Court was in favor of Mr Manke. It’s good to know that they are still protecting our rights when the media and the demoncrats want to destroy our freedom.

  6. Of course, they WON”T APOLOGIZE! They’ll step up their attacks and probably attack the Supreme Court, POSSIBLY even call for “Protestors to attack the supreme court! That seems to be their Standard Operating Procedure for dealing for people who don’t agree with them!

  7. No. They would never apologize for anything they do. They are Socialist and want to run the country as such.

  8. That barber is a disgrace to the profession. He’s making money off all this PR. Google Mark Manke and get his whole history!! I can’t believe the media is dumb enough to give him air time. Anybody that knows the history of his family is laughing, He doesn’t even need to work. I wonder how many of his books are selling now that he’s been made famous.

    1. You might want to research this a little further. The name of the barber is Karl Manke not Mark Manke. Maybe your research method needs some work.

    2. That is not the point!! The point is the Governor over stepped her authority. This is happening across the country and it is the Liberal Socialistic Democratic party that is doing this to American citizens. This whole COVID-19 thing has been a media test in fear porn. People across this country listened and damn near destroyed this country. It did succeed in further dividing the country as the Liberal Socialistic Democraps wanted. Divide the people and make them hate each other. That was how you conquer a people.

    3. You better get your facts straight before attempting to squash a GENUINE AMERICAN WORKING STIFF- JUST TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING/ SURVIVE IN THIS HYSTERIA!

    4. Can you produce some facts to back up your empty accusations? First of all, the Michigan barber is KARL MANKE – NOT MARK! What of his history don’t you like? Have you ever read any of his books? If I had to make a guess, I would probably opine that you are a fan of Saul Alinsky & his Rules For Radicals. You can straighten that out just by presenting some facts to back up your hate statements.

    5. MARTI YOU ARE A TRUE IDIOT, SORRY BUT YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID!!AND AND THAT WOULD BE YOU MR DEMOCRAT! SOOO SAD!!

    6. The Democrats should be praying that they lose the 2020 election because they cannot imagine what will happen if they should win

  9. One hopes that the governor has learned her lesson. Unfortunately, I am not holding my breath.

  10. Of course they won’t apologize. Thank God he won his case. They think we are stupid and don’t know what their up to. They cut their own throats a little more each day. Trump 2020

    1. History repeats itself. Comparing the arrogance of the Democrats-SDEMS, Socialist Demorats-crats and the monarchies of old England towards the Americans. Thinking that America is ignorant and they know better, the SDEMS will make the one big mistake. Take freedom away from the majority and they-SDEMS- will lose their entire hold on the power they so ignorantly want more than to service justice and the US people.

  11. It just shows that Elected Officials SHOULD be Versed In Law and NOT make laws According to Political Desires !

  12. Mr. Manke is a very strong and Christian man. Thank you Mr. Manke for upholding to your principles and beliefs. You are a role model for all of us, and we should not let power hungry, selfish government officials take over our lives and livelihoods.

    1. I agree 100% with you. God will always be with his children.
      Whitmer thought she was God and she got knocked down from her throne.
      Thank you to the supreme court judges.

    2. I am proud of you, Karl Manke for standing up for your beliefs and for giving others who do not support the far left policy and erroneous decisions made for political expediency the courage to let their voices be heard. We do not need or support acts of terrorism perpetrated by thugs destroying communities and destroying livelihoods in order to be seen for a moment of fame fanned by corrupt media views. Equal justice under the law mandates anyone committing a crime have their day in court and be judged by the law of the land and a jury of one’s peers.

  13. Nice to have the Supreme Court to hold up the law some of the governor’s have let the covert19 to go to head and then think they have total control over the people. Maybe know they will get the message that they are not God and act like a human being should. Thank You Supreme Court for going by the law, God Bless You.

  14. Our eyes are being diverted from the problem. Color & fake pandemic is being used to prevent us from addressing what needs to be fixed. Our politicians are acting like kings & treating their constituents like subjects.

  15. hope he is suing for fines and legal fees the Governor should pay not the people.

    Good ruling

  16. It is great he won. It looks like the
    Michigan Supreme Court is much better than the federal supreme court.

  17. I am glad the Supreme Court stod up for what’s right. I don t expect Whitmer to lower herself to apologize.

    1. Elaine – apologies would be a step UP for her. Sadly, you’re probably correct that she will never apologize for anything.

  18. God bless him and thank God he had the guts to keep on fighting and the Supreme Court did the right thing. He should sue her because he certainly has every right to. She’s just another Democrat who is power crazy and somehow thinks they rule the world and the lives of all the constituents that they’re supposed to be serving and representing. The court has ruled against her many times one would think at this point she’d get her head out of her own butt and get a reality check but she’s nothing but a loser.

  19. Bravo for Mr Manke for standing up to his Principals! Bravo for the Surpreme Court upholding the law and finding in favor of Mr Manke. It’s time for American Citizens to take a long hard look at what is going on in our country. Time to fight back for our rights. Boy Red at the Ballot Box!!! Vote them out.

  20. The media is so liberal and Democrats they will not acknowledge good only hate and spread the divisiveness. What happened to the impartial media…

  21. All of you are spot on. Antifa should be totally unmasked and the people exposed for who they really are. They should be tried for destroying property, injuring and killing innocent people, and provoking civil unrest. Everyone of them should be shipped to Cuba, Communist China, North Korea where they will get a real taste of Communisim of which they so desperately want. Black Lives Matter is HAMAS using another name and should be arrested for the same things as Antifa. The mayor in Washington D.C. who had the name changed of a street with bold yellow letters stating Black Live Matter should be removed from office immediately. Mayor Garcetti who does not want to fund the L.A. Police Department should immediately be removed from office. All of those who are against the U.S. Constitution and the American Flag should have their citizenship yanked and sent out of this country permanently.

  22. I am so glad that someone has had the balls to stand up to our worthless governor and win now she needs to pay him for all the lost wages that he would have made and she needs to step down and get a real governor in that office

  23. He will not receive an apology due to the FACT THAT DEMOCRATS DO NOT AND WILL NOT APOLOGIZE FOR THEIR OWN STUPIDITY AND TO THINK THEY WILL IS JUST LOST THOUGHT !

  24. I am thankful the gentleman won his case and I believe his fine should be given back to him. That governor there is acting like Hitler. She is overreaching her bounds

  25. SURELY YOU JEST!(! Do you see what’s happening now? Ignorance has taken over much of our country and the far left are ecstatic!! This is truly frightening when you have a segment of our country so stupid!!

  26. The DemoCommunists are nothing but Satan’s helpers. Watch when Jesus Christ comes down to earth again then they will stand in line looking like idiots.

  27. Our America is being seriously THREATENED by Black Lives Matter which is being used as a cover for Organizations committed to Destroying us at the CORE. All these Dictates by people in charge are EXACTLY what the left is using to produce all this wasted time and money. Totally counter productive. Let’s get back to work before we lose everything ! Then What ??

  28. Hopefully the great people of Michigan vote her out. I am very happy for the barber and the courts decision. The governor has been a pure as whole to the people who voted her in.she thinks she is better than everyone. Hope Joe Biden picks her as his 😛 nominee lol

  29. I DON’T THINK THEY WILL APOLOGISE. UNLESS GOD HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS. I’M GLAD HE WON!! NOW THEY NEED TO GIVE HIM MONEY. DEBBIE FROM KANSAS

  30. Thank you God I don’t live in Michigan, let me be clear on that! I’m glad the barber won! But this is only a taste of what the democrats want in our country!! Hillary said people are to stupid to manage their own affairs and nasty Nancy says it too!! So I ask each of you is that the kind of country do you want to live in??
    People please wake up ! Don’t let them take your home,car,bank accounts ( obama has already passed) your life,! If we don’t do it now they are going to where to live,what if any car you can drive,what money if any you can have, what food is available and how much you can have!!! Only the rich will have any freedom!!!

  31. IN MY MIND, JFK WAS THE LAST GOOD DEMOCRAT PRESIDENT. JOHNSON WAS WORTHLESS
    TO THIS DAY I BELIEVE JOHNSON HAD A HAND IN JFK’S ASSASSINATION!
