Tough Night for Michigan RINOs

In politics, 235-185 against the incumbents is considered a landslide victory. That’s exactly what happened Thursday night at the Oakland County Republican (OCRP) Convention of recently elected Precinct Delegates..

The Party base had had enough:

  • unfair convention rules to perpetuate the incumbents
  • open antagonism towards Liberty and Tea Party Constitutionalists seeking to enforce the Party Platform
  • candidates more focused on the wishes of the Chamber of Commerce than adherence to will of the People

District 29 Caucus Leader, David Lonier, commented, “In a 235 to 185 vote, we [Constitutionalists] substituted inequitable convention rules with “fair” rules, and went on to elect a principled permanent convention chairman, who appointed the permanent convention officers and conducted the rest of the Convention in a most fair and orderly fashion. The body voted to appoint 9 principled members-at-large to the OCRP Executive Committee, and the District Caucuses, which were chaired by “elected”, “not appointed” chairs, elected some 39 more members to the 2014-2016 OCRP Executive Committee.”

Lonier continued, “It was an evening not soon to be forgotten by the 420 voting delegates …  Feelings of good will and camaraderie have not been so high in an OCRP event within the memory of most who attended.  There’s great excitement with the prospect of Oakland County leading the way in a new, clean, transparent and principled direction for politics in Michigan and beyond, as other counties and states join us in our peaceful determination to regain our freedom through the Republican political process.”

The accomplishment of the loyal opposition to unseat the all-powerful OCRP leadership team was “monumental”. Unifying the base and mentoring them to effectively use Robert’s Rules took commitment and practice. Challenging the Temporary Convention Chair, Jim Thienel, on the grounds of an unfair agenda to force the adoption of unfair rules took the courage to withstand multiple threats of ejection from the convention. The unified and vociferous outcry of the assembled delegates demanded an honest vote on the rules. Multiple recesses to find a way to escape the wave of change proved fruitless for Mr. Thienel and his leadership team.

Unanimously-elected Convention Permanent Chairman, Matt Maddock, reveled in the victory of the party base, “Fairness won the night and added dozens of new foot soldiers. This will set the stage for years to come. The days of discouragement and uncomfortable votes that we know are tearing the party apart are behind us. Let’s seize the day and continue this new direction towards transparency and build this party into a Democrat beating powerhouse!!”

Next Monday November 24th, the newly elected OCRP Executive Committee will elect the 2014-2016 ORCP Chairman. Matt Maddock will be challenging the Establishment candidate Theresa Mungioli.

Citizens Threaten To Recall Rep. Kurt Heise

Republican activists threaten a recall of Rep. Heise if he votes to double gasoline taxes.

Republican activists threaten a recall of Rep. Heise if he votes to double gasoline taxes.

Rhetoric has been getting heated recently as the Michigan House of Representatives prepares to vote on a bill which would raise gasoline taxes by $1 billion annually.The focus of much of that heated rhetoric is Kurt Heise, the Republican representing Canton, Plymouth, and Northville in the State House.”Some activists are talking about recalling Kurt Heise if he votes to double the gas tax” said Ignacio Marques, a Republican Precinct Delegate in Canton. “Heise already broke his campaign promise to lower taxes when he voted for similar bills hiking gasoline and vehicle registration taxes in the past – we can’t let him get away with it again.”

This would not be the first time citizens attempt to recall a State Representative from the 20th House District. In 2008, State Rep. Marc Corriveau (D-Northville) faced a recall over his vote for higher taxes.

More recently in 2014, recall petitions were filed against several Plymouth Township Board Trustees.

Whether or not recall petitions will be filed against Rep. Heise remains to be seen, however.

“We will only go through with this if he votes for the tax hike,” Marques said. “But we are fully prepared to get the necessary amount of signatures to force a recall election if Heise breaks his campaign promise against higher taxes one more time.”

The bill, which passed the State Senate, will replace the flat gasoline tax of 19 cents per gallon with a higher wholesale tax. Under the new wholesale tax, state gasoline taxes could rise to 41 cents per gallon by 2018.

The Most Amazing Wedgie

boehner-wedgie435 US House of Representative members including 234 Republicans were simultaneously given a fanny flossing by the POTUS last night.

The president, in one of the boldest moves yet, did an in-your-face to our sitting elected representatives, the likes of which have never been seen in our nation before.  Picture a petulant child walking up to mom with a Mr. Microphone, calmly telling her to go shtump herself then drop the mic on the floor in a classic you-have-been-served moment.  Though our Congress is not exactly saying “oh what a precious child,” they are enabling the president’s current action, and making future actions likely worse by not putting him over the knee and giving him the red bottom spanking he so desperately needs.

But it should somehow not surprise us that nothing will be done. Especially when our own state elected politicians hardly understand the scope of what this president has done to the constitution.  The president has been recycling the parchment as toilet paper multiple times, yet even our AG’s response is weak as he responds:

“America must have a hopeful immigration policy, a policy of inclusion not exclusion.  America’s door of opportunity must be open to new citizens.  The door to America’s unique experiment of freedom and enterprise must be open and welcoming to new Americans.

However, President Obama seems to be more interested in gamesmanship and litigation than working on bipartisan solutions to immigration reform.  By ignoring Congress and stretching Executive Orders beyond Constitutional limits, President Obama is clearly playing politics instead of providing lawful solutions to immigration challenges.  The result is gridlock and lawsuits, just what the American people voted against in 2014″

This ain’t “politics” bubba.

This is an outright gauntlet thrown down.  This is the gloves pulled off, slapped face, pee-in-your-cheerios, challenge to a duel.

homer-constMichigan’s congressional delegation must act before it’s too late.

Before anyone simply assumes that Obama is a clumsy leader and simply mistaken on taking this country to its low point in history, perhaps they consider that it is no accident.  At Townhall.com, Walter Williams makes this point about seeing a driver going the wrong direction:

“Would you call him a stupid and/or incompetent driver? You say, “Williams, what kind of question is that? Of course he’s one or the other!” I’d say, “Hold your horses. What are his intentions?” If the driver’s intentions are to cause highway calamity, one can hardly call his actions stupid or incompetent. Given his intentions, he is wisely acting in a manner to achieve his objectives.”

Indeed, one must have a full understanding of what the objectives are.

For more than five years now, our congress has not only allowed the president to act contrary to law, but they have funded his efforts.  In his article, Williams further points out the responsibility of congress to act under article 1 of our constitution.  Unless they act to suppress the objectives of this president, (or his incredible off the chart incompetence) through the power of the purse, we will have to fully admit the constitution is lost, and our Republic has been replaced by simple tyranny.

For that, who needs a congressman?

So, why aren’t we being more direct? And is this a good place to start? (see item linked at end of post)

Because we’ve seen Gadsdens flooding Lansing, over the State Income Tax hike? Medicaid expansion? The non-bailout Detroit Bailout A/K/A DIA Bailout? Doubling Tipping Fees (garbage collection tax for the mouthbreathers)?

With an alleged Republican executive branch? – Corinthian Scales November 14, 2014″

I’ll be 100% honest here, this comment from Corinthian Scales (along with Kevin Rex Hines’ follow-up…linked here) on the Snyder(Calley)/Richardville Gas Tax Hike, really bothered me over the weekend.

Despite 1,200 miles of driving and numerous other issues I’m currently juggling this weekend that aren’t exactly going according to “Plan ‘A’ “, both gentlemen’s very direct comments regarding this issue gave me reason to pause over the weekend.

Ultimately, I feel that this is a guestion that should to be addressed if the Conservative Movement here in Michigan (and elsewhere) is to have any long-lasting relevancy.

Snyder, Calley, Obamacare, and Their 42%

The fine folks over at MCC may as well get this plan out of their heads because this state has a load of English as a second language deadbeats waiting in the wings when .FEDGOV tightens its pursestrings.

Immigrants and their U.S.-born children make up more than 40 percent of new Medicaid recipients at a cost of $4.6 billion, according to an analysis of government data.

The Center for Immigration Studies, a low-immigration advocacy group, released a report early Thursday that found both legal and illegal immigrants [aliens] and their minor children made up 42 percent of Medicaid growth from 2011 to last year.

Part of the increased enrollment came as a result of the new healthcare law’s expansion of Medicaid to impoverished and low-income adults.

“The high rate and significant growth in Medicaid associated with immigrants is mainly the result of a legal immigration system that admits large numbers of immigrants with relatively low-levels of education, many of whom end up poor and uninsured,” the report says. “This fact, coupled with the extensive supports we provide to low-income residents, unavoidably creates very significant costs for taxpayers.”

As an aside regarding Obamacare, newly elected SML Arlan Meekhof is proving his weight in Nerd gold as to what a useless ass he’ll be for Conservatives.

Frankly, I just can’t begin to wrap my mind around the concept of Michigan’s delegation fighting anything in D.C. when they willfully turn a blind eye to sonofabitches in their own Party in Lansing, who work to implement Obama’s agenda.
