Witch Doctor

Witch doctor
noun
(among tribal peoples) a magician credited with powers of healing, divination, and protection against the magic of others.

It’s no secret to loyal RightMi.com readers that I have little use for, Rep. Dan “Enough is Enough” Benishek. You see, good ‘ol slow-talking Doctor Dan, has this history of wanting to portray himself as a “Constitutional conservative” only to vote to raise the debt ceiling, reauthorize the NDAA, and vote to fund Obamacare. That’s a “Constitutional conservative”?

Benishemp-RINOHardly, and his 1% margin over Gary McDowell, in 2012, certainly serves to highlight that CD-1 voters see Doctor Dan as a fraud who happened to be in the right place at the right time in 2010, for certain movers and shakers within the state Party’s apparatchik.

Well, upon discovery, I just happened across Doctor Dan’s new allegiance to the Progressive Country Club, or as founder Fred Upton, would like to convince us unapologetic Conservatives, his “main street partnership”. Frankly, I do not see one thing considered normal, Constitutional, nor even Conservative about its founders and their Democrat-lite mission statement.

It is though, a clear sign of how desperate Dan Benishek is to remain in office.

It’s time for Doctor Dan to be booted from the District of Corruption, and back to his private life of billing Medicaid/Medicare.

Vote your conscience tomorrow.

I am.

Lorence Wenke: Not Libertarian

Back in May, Lorence Wenke switched from Republican to Libertarian.  He claims that this move was based in principle, not political convenience.  So how well do his views line up with libertarianism?

Wenke said he would support expanding the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act to include protections for LGBT citizens, adding that if no one else introduced the bill, he would do so.

Anti-discrimination laws violate freedom of association, and there is a long libertarian tradition opposing them.

How about the basic free market position of opposing the minimum wage?

Wenke, the owner of Wenke Greenhouses in Comstock Township, said he would have voted yes on the minimum wage increase.

He said the increase will have a significant impact on the payroll businesses, but added that he believes the working poor of the community deserve the raise.

Michigan 56th District Race Mystery Mailers

Anonymous mailers flood mailboxes in Michigan's 56th state house district.

Bain-card3Randy Bain was pleasantly surprised that someone supports him in his bid for the Michigan House of representatives..

When mailers arrived at his home not just once, but TWICE, he wondered who might it be that would be sending out the cards describing Democrats and Republicans as having no discernible differences.  Who was it saying “Al Bain isn’t a party robot!” in two separate mailings?

Bain-card1Did we mention R. Al Bain is a candidate for the 56th District house seat as a (Constitution party) US Taxpayer?

Bain says that he knows of other Republicans who have received the postcards, yet his neighbors who are Democrats, have not. This could feed the speculation that Democrats are subtly assisting 3rd party candidates who have a strong possibility of drawing votes from Republicans to give THEIR candidates a better shot. This is not out of the question, as we have seen THAT before.

Interestingly, there is no disclaimer, a part 47 campaign finance violation.  The return address could be any number of businesses in the tower address. There are a number of election contributions from that address over the years, but nothing that would indicate a pattern of contributions or big money.   Bain says:Bain-card2

I googled the address it’s a 12 story office tower in Southfield I called a number and the girl said her company had the whole 12th floor they are a automotive marketing and research firm. There are several businesses in that tower.

Candidate Bain is already planning his victory speech.
