Gretchen Esther Whitmer is an American lawyer and politician serving as the 49th governor of Michigan since 2019. A member of the Democratic Party, she served in the Michigan House of Representatives from 2001 to 2006 and in the Michigan Senate from 2006 to 2015.

Whitmer was born and raised in Michigan. She is a graduate of Forest Hills Central High School near Grand Rapids, Michigan State University, and the Michigan State University College of Law. She ran unsuccessfully for the state house in the 1990s before being elected in 2000. In 2006, she became a state senator, a position she kept until term limits forced her to step down in 2015. For six months in 2016, she was the county prosecutor for Ingham County.

Whitmer was elected governor in the 2018 gubernatorial election, defeating Republican Attorney General Bill Schuette. In February 2020, she was selected to give the Democratic response to President Donald Trump's 2020 State of the Union Address.

Covid-19 lockdown

Whitmer was responsible for one of the hardest lockdowns in the United States

In May 2021, showing what she really thinks of the emergency, Whitmer was photographed with large group of unmasked people with no social distancing on a bar in East Lansing.[1] The restaurant was violating state-mandated social distancing guidelines that restricted indoor dining to no more than six people on a table.[2] Because she was caught, Whitmer apologized for the incident.[3]

FBI false flag plot

Full article: Gretchen Whitmer/Kidnapping plot

On October 8, 2020, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced the arrests of 13 men suspected of orchestrating a domestic terror plot to kidnap Governor Whitmer and otherwise violently overthrow the state government. The suspects were tied to a paramilitary militia group that called themselves the Wolverine Watchmen, which was founded by two of the suspects.[4]

It soon turned out the plot was orchestrated almost entirely by the FBI. The plotters’ driver and ‘explosives expert’ were both agents, while the militia’s head of security was an undercover informant. At every meeting leading up to the supposed kidnap attempt, an FBI source was present, and out of the five men who drove a van to kidnap Whitmer, three were FBI agents and informants.[5]

In a further bizarre coincidence, the FBI agent in charge of the infiltration operation was promoted after the plot was foiled, and given a position in the agency’s Washington DC field office, and oversees the prosecution of hundreds of Capitol rioters.
