Meet the “Not Ready for Prime Time Players.”

Meet the Not Ready for Prime Time Players.

…featuring, Gretchen Whitmer, Shri Thanedar, Abdul El-Sayed…

What?!?

We’re you expecting the likes of Laraine Newman, John Belushi, Jane Curtin, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, Garrett Morris or Chevy Chase.

Okay, I’ll give you that second lot wouldn’t been much more funnier.

Even though that quaint concept of “Rule of Law” comes into play here (with that whole proposing legislation and eventually signing it into law thing), it’s not as if that first group can’t provide us with some laughs as well.

{The hilarity ensues after the fold}

So after nearly eight years of lamenting about Republican Control up in Lansing, the 2018 starting lineup is beginning to take shape Bill Cobbs, Gretchen Whitmer, Shri Thanedar and Abdul El-Sayed.

On the surface, this group is pretty much interchangeable, especially with their stand on the issues.

But aside from that and the “-d” after their names, all similarities end.

First off you have local businessman Bill Cobbs, of whom most people wouldn’t recognize if he were sitting next to you at American Coney Island.

Then you have career politician Gretchen Whitmer, whom not only sat on her duff when a certain pedophile was having his way with little girls up at MSU, but is fighting off opposition from Solidarity House who want her out of the race, toot sweet.

Nah! I wasn’t scared of Whitmer.

Next is Shri Thanedar, political noob who while likeable, still has AN AWFUL LONG WAY TO GO learning the ropes in Lansing (Exhibit “A” go to 13:34 in this clip…sorry but I cannot cue this one up).

And rounding out the list there is former Detroit Health Department Exec. Abdul El-Sayed.

This is the one who should be on everyone’s radar.

No, I won’t delve into the whole Muslim Brotherhood, Sharia Law supporting, Soros’ protégé thing, or his large number of financial supporters from outside of the State of Michigan. Other people have done that one to death already. Plus I’d rather stick to something a little more relatable to most Michigan Voters.

 

His campaign is standard democrat language…if democrats were 100% open about where they stand on things (which to be honest, I can at least respect that much in him): Free stuff for everyone!!!

Free healthcare. Free school. “Free” internet. “Living” (yet economically unsustainable) Wage. Conferring “You’re special” statue to the LGBTIQ-crowd.

Santa Claus is comin’ to town!

If this sound vaguely familiar, it should, he is an unabashed proponent of Bernie Sanders’ platform and makes no bones about it. As a matter of fact, the remnants of Sanders’ political machine are glomming onto his campaign.

He is a polished and charismatic speaker that might remind everyone of another Muslim who broke onto the political scene not that long ago.

Things were humming along quite nicely for an August showdown for the Team “d” crown.

That is, until The Bridge magazine broke a story that has been making the rounds behind the scenes for sometime now: El-Sayed in Constitutionally ineligible to run for Michigan Governor because of his residency.

Short version, while attending Columbia in ‘12, El-Sayed registered to vote in NY. He changed his Driver’s License over to NY in ‘13.

The requirements for Michigan Governor according the Michigan Constitution Article V § 22:

“To be eligible for the office of governor or lieutenant governor a person must have attained the age of 30 years, and have been a registered elector in this state for four years next preceding his election.”

El-Sayed came back to Michigan in ‘15 to work for the City of Detroit.

Now, to be fair, this isn’t really a problem for him (yet).

But it will be, if on or before April 24th (page 3), he declares that he is legally eligible to run for Michigan Governor.

If he does, then release the kraken, release the lawyers, because it will be a cake walk for them to remove him from the field, clearing the way for a Whitmer coronation and another civil war within the Michigan Democratic Party.

Much like when the Democratic Party establishment tirelessly worked behind the scenes to dump Bernie Sanders from the ticket.

And we all know how well that turned out for Team “d”.

Stay tuned.

    Yeah I got excited about this prospect until talking to buddies--it's the Al-sayed movement, not the man. Some scenarios were brought up but the best--with name recognition he could run for US senate, which is where his Soros led group really wants him. Not having a viable gubernatorial candidate to run--to the rescue comes Gary Peters--backed by the million$ outta-state money Al-Sayed has amassed. Now, a senate seat opens up (Gary Peters never really liked DC as his network of thieves is back home), just in time for a state-wide special election in time for the Nov. general election. Now, that's just fun, fun, fun.

    Hey What's with Engler as interim president for MSU??? What????? Engler needs to be gone--let Texas take him back or let him stew in DC. He lacks the most basic qualifications to turn a university embroiled in scandal.

    Shri Thanedar has more issues than just his clumsy politics. A 2011 bankruptcy in St. Louis and allegations of creative accounting fraudulently boosting the sale price of his latest company:

    But the lawsuit alleges Thanedar instructed employees to adjust and relax the company’s approach to recognizing revenue. He specifically told employees that the sale – and their corresponding transaction bonuses – would be jeopardized if the company did not meet monthly revenue targets, according to the complaint.

    The entrepreneur is also accused of instructing bookkeeping staff to back date invoices so revenue could be recognized in prior months to suggest a more stable income stream.

    “In the end, Thanedar’s scheme successfully, but fraudulently, induced (the) purchaser to close the transaction and pay a higher amount for (the) seller’s interest than it was worth,” attorneys claim.

    The lawsuit alleges Thanedar violated the federal Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Michigan Uniform Securities Act, the Deleware Securities Act, common law fraud and breach of contract.

    Avomeen Holdings, whose majority owner is High Street Capital, attempted to rescind the purchase agreement and all related transactions in April, according to the suit. Thanedar and the Chemreal LLC company he created during the sale “refused that demand,” attorneys said.

      Oh, trust me.

      What was posted above is merely the "short list".

      I cannot go around including everything I have about them this early in the campaign.

      To paraphrase a line from a favorite show of mine, "...that would be telling."
