Not Michigan related directly, but I found something that happened yesterday to be too fun to be ignored.
Talk about taking a rolled up newspaper and tapping a few mongrels on the nose.
Donald Trump remained calm as he laid out the case (from the start) that main stream media has done our country a disservice. By the end of the hour plus woodshed visit, the spirit of those labeled so easily as “very fake news” wash nowhere to be found.
I don’t think I have ever seen a press conference like this, and enjoyed every minute.
My name is Kenneth Lloyd, and I am running to be the next Outreach Vice Chair for the Michigan Republican Party. This is my story.
I was born in 1990 with the condition known as cerebral palsy. It affects the central nervous system and makes it very difficult to control the movement of my muscles, which is why I use a wheelchair. Thankfully, I am in stable condition and the disability has not impacted my cognitive skills. I have never let my physical limitations stop me from working to achieve my goals in life.
In 2009, I graduated from Osborn High School as the Valedictorian of my class. In the fall of that same year, I began my undergraduate collegiate education at Wayne State University. In the spring of 2013, I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in political science from Wayne State University. In the fall of 2015, I began working on my Master’s degree in political science at Wayne State University. Politics is a great passion of mine.
One of the reasons as to why I am seeking this degree is because I want to teach political science at the collegiate level, to try to help offset the negative effects that left-wing indoctrination is having on the political thinking of college students. I understand the history of the Founding Fathers, and why they are so important. I want to keep that legacy alive and bestow it to the next generation. My own perseverance, aided by rapidly-developing technology, will allow me to make my dreams a reality.
Thomas Sowell is retiring his pen (or keyboard, IBM selectric, whatever).
In one post today, he reflects on how nice it was to be away from the noise of politics, news etc., during a recent outing with friends. He implies in another, that it is the lessons unlearned which plague our youth with unrealistic expectations and social fantasy.
“The old are not really smarter than the young, in terms of sheer brainpower. It is just that we have already made the kinds of mistakes that the young are about to make, and we have already suffered the consequences that the young are going to suffer, if they disregard the record of the past.”
The recount was over when the appeals court said Stein had no standing.
That’s a wrap, everyone can go home.
As I said yesterday, when the Michigan court of appeals demonstrated the logic we expect from our best legal minds, it was a done deal. Tonight, the big news is that judge Goldsmith followed the constitution, and responded properly to the state court decision of recount propriety. From ABC news:
U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith agreed with Republicans who argued that the three-day recount must end a day after the state appeals court dealt a blow to the effort. The court said Stein, who finished fourth in Michigan on Nov. 8, didn’t have a chance of winning even after a recount and therefore isn’t an “aggrieved” candidate.
“Because there is no basis for this court to ignore the Michigan court’s ruling and make an independent judgment regarding what the Michigan Legislature intended by the term ‘aggrieved,’ plaintiffs have not shown an entitlement to a recount,” Goldsmith said.
Clearly, he recognized his role was not to determine standing in this case.
The image on the right btw, is for those who think the GOP is forcing them into a safe space.
