Elections

A history lesson is obviously in order.

Just in case you’ve missed this, President Trump signed an executive order temporarily banning immigrants from certain nations with ties to islamic terrorism from entering the United States.

As usual, the pundits are working feverishly to spin this, with Team “d” demonstration again why they got their backsides handed to them last November.

Sadly, some Michigan Representative, like Rep. Justin Amash, either have no problems with seeing dead Americans or they require a remedial lesson in recent US History.

In Rep. Amash’s case, I’m hoping that it is the latter.

My name is Kenneth Lloyd, I am running for MIGOP Outreach Vice Chair, and this is my story.

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.

The democrats are coming! The democrats are coming!!!

Let's see if they can last?

I’ve mentioned previously that get contacted fairly frequently asking for my input on various political things going on around the area.

This one is too good for me not to share with everyone here.

Human Error?

Plausible deniability of the year tale comes with "machines bumping up against each other"

I probably could have commented on this several times since the recount nonsense.

The unintended consequences of the Jill Stein recount, was to officially put the Michigan Secretary of State on notice that there are irregularities with the voting in the motor city. Of course the unspoken truth has always been known, but proof of such shenanigans was elusive and considered inconsequential for most elections.

Given the revelation of fraud, and the incredible magnitude which it has appeared, it would seem only proper to fully investigate all of those who are entrusted with our voting responsibility in these precincts.  Criminal sanctions are likely warranted in some cases revealed by Stein’s efforts, yet the players caught with their hands in the cookie jar are not going to admit culpability too easily.  From the New American

That is quite a disguise you are wearing there, Mr. Finley

“Wolf” in sheep’s clothing.

 

In case anyone needed a clue as to why The Detroit News wasn’t acting like the Conservative Newspaper that it once was?

Digital First Media certainly pays its employees well to act like something they are not.

Hmmm, I wonder if Stephen Henderson is really a conservative???

And … Cut!

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.

Appeals Court Decision Should Halt The Nonsense

Michigan Court of Appeals gives Mandamus ruling to canvassers.

It ends here.

The Michigan Court of Appeals has ordered [suggested?] the canvassers to do their job.  There was no reason to hold a recount when the outcome was not going to benefit Stein, and that she was not an aggrieved candidate with standing.

Jill Stein has no reason to continue.  The recount will end. The federal decision was not in conflict with what should have happened in the canvasser’s hearing. The federal decision was unrelated to the decision by the canvassers, and was timing related only. Thus, as reported by the Detroit Free Press:

Andrea Bitely, a spokeswoman for Schuette, said the Michigan Court of Appeals said that “there is no conflict between” its order and the federal district court’s temporary restraining order, so the recount should end immediately.

Time to go report to your masters Jill.

You failed to start a chaos driven event.

Michigan’s Supreme Court Should Engage NOW

Michigan's Supreme Court can intervene and save taxpayers millions and end the Democrat created chaos.

An Obama appointed federal Judge has ordered the recount to begin today at Noon.

This wouldn’t have happened by itself, and required a petition by Jill Stein to ‘expedite’ the process.   Michigan Law dictates that state officials must wait two business days after hearing objections to a recount petition before they can start counting. This allows court review of the Board of Canvassers ruling on recount requests.

The federal Judge is attempting to circumvent Michigan’s election law, which is not it’s role.

If the canvassers had ruled for the Trump objection to the recount, this couldn’t have happened. The decision is based on the presumed ability to complete the recount in the shortened time and not whether it should go forward. However, the net decision requires an expedited ruling from the Michigan Court of Appeals or the Michigan Supreme court, or taxpayers on Attorney General Bill Schuette’s motion.

Stein has no skin in the outcome, and even admits the process is not expected to change the results of the election.  Yet Stein has pursued this avenue in order to insert chaos into the electoral process.

And the Democrats including Mark Brewer, former chair of the Michigan Democrat party are happy to see it happen.

Brewer filed the for the federal judge’s action on behalf of Stein as Plaintiff.

And If You Were Wondering

Michigan Poised to end this nonsense once and for all.

objectionCanvassers meet today to determine if they ‘accept’ the objection to the recount.

As best I can tell, (with a minor exception of two) the scheduled recount counties are those which have a traditionally higher Democrat voting, an/or did fairly well for the indicted criminal, Hillary Clinton.  If there were errors or machine missed/uncounted ballots, the percentages advantage Democrats in these counties.

If you are in the most conservative areas, Jill Stein (AKA Campaign for Hillary) does not want to recount your votes.

If the objection is accepted by the board of canvassers, its done, and Trump Wins Michigan.  If they do not accept the objection, then next Tuesday will be the beginning of the ‘fun.’

Stay tuned.
