Meet the Fockers.
AYES: Benishek, Camp, Huizenga, Miller, Rogers, Upton, Walberg
We've seen the movie before. Spoiler alert: in this sequel, Paul Ryan and John Boehner lie, and the Marxstream Media prints the lie. Once again, the Michigan GOP delegation majority has voted with Gary Peters, which is their ongoing endorsement of Gary Peters for U.S. Senate.
I cannot do much in other congressional districts, however, I am aware of what I can effect in CD-1.
Congressman Dan Benishek, go f#@% yourself. With a chainsaw.
Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, I thank you for voting NO, and voting on Principle. To that extent, I acknowledge the no vote of this dubious character playing in the Yob-ite propaganda machine. With same regard, I thank Reps. Conyers, and Levin, for their no votes too.
"It was by the sober sense of our citizens that we were safely and steadily conducted from monarchy to republicanism, and it is by the same agency alone we can be kept from falling back." Thomas Jefferson
So ends Chapter Ten of The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic by Constitutional scholar, attorney and popular conservative talk-radio host, Mark Levin. The quote by Jefferson is used, as are many others, to call to us for the need to be active and resolute in our handling of the precious and fragile rarity of liberty during this most distressing point in American history.
Levin's book explores and emphasizes the thought processes of those who lent their thoughts to the founding of the nation, and zeroes in on the part in Article V of the Constitution that reinforces the design of the framers; that the people of the States shall have the power to amend the Constitution in case those in Washington D.C. refuse to follow it.
Here is the answer to the questions so many Patriots have posed most recently due to the appalling disrespect paid to our nation's founding documents by those who reach for absolute power. That, if we cannot sufficiently, through activism within the political process, produce enough legislators steeped in the history of this great nation who will work to shrink the gluttonous beast that is the Federal Government, we are not destined to only trod that narrow path. We are armed with the ability to work with our closest representatives, turning out our passion for liberty onto the villiages, towns and communities we live in.

Michigander Jen Kuznicki makes some great points during a critique of Dick Lugar's 'concession speech' last night.
The not so gracious Lugar had a few things to say after getting the kick in the jewels reminder that nothing is permanent last night to a Roll Call reporter. In the short blog piece answering his statement, "Well there's your problem, Dick", her analysis nails down the essence of the RINO mentality:
"Rejectionist orthodoxyThis particular blog post drew the attention of none other than conservative radio host Mark Levin this morning, where he posted it on his fan page.
H/T to Levin. Indeed.

Mark Levin linked to a story in the Atlantic about what former Governor of Michigan, Jennifer Granholm, reads on a daily basis. She cited a number of progressive and liberal columnists, as well as liberal journalists and news outlets. But, she also had to tell all of us how she hates Rush and Mark Levin.
"If I had to name people I don't like, I'd say Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin. It's that breed of real toxic-spewers who are really damaging to our discourse. I'd be embarrassed to have my mom or dad listen to them. I don't think they shouldn't be on the radio but when the rhetoric inflames and exaggerates to the point of lacking integrity, that bothers me."
Mark Levin reacted,
Aw Jennifer, the feeling is mutual...
I live in Michigan, and can talk for hours about how exactly Jennifer Granholm screwed over this beautiful State for many years to come. And, of course it is because of her leftist ideology that she obviously practices on a daily basis. The easiest way I can think of to persuade the reader that her ideology is the problem is simply to take what she said and translate it. Hey, we lived with her for eight years, Michiganders know her.

Frankly, if the Paul's are going to use the Republican Party name, then toss LBJ grenades into others camps, and then have Ron pull a punk-ass stunt like run Third Party as he has before in 1988, or worse, endorse Cynthia McCommie and Ralph Nader types like in 2008; then they both need to be defeated from holding Office.

Fred Upton, a Republican from Michigan, is insisting he is worthy to chair the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and has written an Op Ed in the Washington Examiner titled, "Rep. Fred Upton: A new majority for America." In it, he describes what he will do if in fact he is chosen as chair, and reiterates his manly chainsaw approach to the budget, and unfortunately, uses the words, "shine the spotlight" on the Obama-Pelosi regulatory policies.
Hang on, check the spotlight bulb first, is it the government-mandated type?

Dr. Daniel Benishek is running a positive campaign for U.S. Congress in Michigan's First District. He gained national attention within hours of Bart Stupak's press conference on March 21st, 2010, when he announced he would vote for the health care bill. It was widely accepted that Stupak had betrayed his conservative district with his decision to vote for the Health Care Bill. Radio talk-show host Mark Levin had Dan on his radio program the next day, supporting him over Stupak. A flurry of television and radio appearances followed, including Sean Hannity, and Neil Cavuto. With help from the grass roots and the Tea Party Express, Stupak made a decision not to run for re-election. In a 6-way race for the primary, Benishek won the district with just 15 votes ahead of long-time State Senator for part of the district, Jason Allen. Allen made a decision not to ask for a recount, and Benishek would move on to face a Democrat challenger, Gary McDowell and three other candidates. Below is a list of important names and endorsements of Daniel Benishek M.D.
