Editor’s Note: While the media and other leftist elites ignore the millions of folks living in “flyover” states, they do so at their own peril; it was this silent majority that put President Trump in the White House. Each week, Liberty Nation gives voice to the hard-working heartlanders who are silent no more.
Audible gasps and derisive jeers across the heartland this week as Biden-boredom prompted folks to go more local for their political angst and entertainment. Topping the list of exciting discussions was the Michigan governor, who may have once been a target for kidnapping, and her visibly (seemingly) altered face. Even more interesting was the decorative bolster proudly on display in the background as said governor blathered on about the new election laws in Georgia. Rounding out the most talked about topics is the man who may have gotten his junk caught in the wringer – the wringer being the press and his peers.
Can’t Get Past the Pillow
Democratic Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer went on air to rant about the horrible Republicans in Georgia who passed voting laws to curb potential future fraud. Governor Brian Kemp (R) signed the GOP-supported Election Integrity Act of 2021 on March 25 – or, as liberals would say, the day of certain apocalyptic fevers, pestilence, and creeks running red with blood. Liberty Nation’s Andrew Moran explains in a nutshell:
“One of the primary aspects of the bill is improving voter ID. Should voters wish to cast their absentee-by-mail ballots, Georgia will require them to prove their identity by providing a driver’s license, state identification number, or other forms of ID instead of signature verification. Some of the other measures consist of restricting drop boxes, expanding in-person voting, and facilitating early voting before general elections.”
Not so scary, liberals. Nevertheless, attempting to stay relevant, Gretch warned that she would not sign similar legislation: “It is unacceptable. If and when those bills get to my desk, and they are aimed at making it harder for people to vote, they will get vetoed.”
No one heard the woman. Instead, viewers were more enthralled by the possibly new and improved Whitmer visage and a couch pillow bearing Dr. Anthony Fauci’s face on her bookshelf. Democrats aren’t weird. Well, the video prompted one Michigan viewer to ask: “what has she done to her lips?” Den McKee in Fulton, MO., was quick to reply: “No worries, they are on loan from Madam Pelosi.”
In Bath, MI., Marilyn Gibbs showed a bit of down-home kindness, suggesting another gift would be ideal for the fresh-faced guv: “Maybe someone can make her a ‘Fauci blankey’ to match her pillow!” Whether or not in jest, an online store sells all sorts of Fauci-themed home décor – started by a one-time Democratic presidential candidate’s (Andrew Yang) spokesperson. Crafty capitalist liberals.
Serious Scandal or Rumormongering?
The Clinton News Network recently released a report full of anonymous claims of sexual misconduct by rising Republican star Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). Two of the sources allege that Gaetz shared photos of women he claimed to have had sex with, and another source spoke of a video of a naked woman hula-hooping. Gaetz denies any wrongdoing and has released this statement via Twitter:
“Over the past several weeks, my family and I have been victims of organized criminal extortion involving a former DOJ official seeking $25 million while threatening to smear my name. We have been cooperating with federal authorities in this matter…”
Easy enough to investigate. But flyover folks all have a nose that can sniff out falsehood in a fancy New York minute, and most folks discussing on social media platforms cried foul. No one in the heartland puts any faith in anonymous sources that seem so prevalent in today’s activist media.
In Rural Hall, NC., Joan Stewart had her say: “CNN continues to lie about everything. So this is just another one. They have never admitted to any of the lies told in years’ past! They are not journalists — but gossip shows.” Vicki Camp down the way in Southport agreed: “Let the record speak for itself. CNN wouldn’t speak the truth if lives depended on it.”
The ladies in North Carolina are a spunky bunch – yet the gals in Ohio and Michigan are not to be outdone. Carlotta Dickson in Philo called the network out as well: “Here we go again w anonymous sources to ruin a Republican. Why isn’t there as much concern over a Democrat who slept with a Chinese spy?” And Jodi Malnar in Rapid River echoed the rest: “As soon as I saw CNN was involved, I knew it was a lie.”
Perhaps CNN should do a bit of nip tuck on their appearance as well. The number to the Michigan governor’s residence is listed.
