    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    BREAKING - Stupak Endorses Prominent Conservative

    Reposted from MTTM - I am honored  .. I guess? ~ jg

    In an unexpected move, Former Congressman Bart Stupak has endorsed across the aisle, and named Jason Gillman the man to beat for the governorship of Michigan.

    Speculation ended only yesterday, when the 1st district Democrat declared that he would rather run against fellow first district citizen, businessman, and author Jason Gillman, for Governor of Michigan, than he would against the current incumbent Rick Snyder.  "My goal is to win back the state for Democrats, and I think I could actually beat Gillman," Stupak said. "And anyhow who is that guy?"

    Stupak's campaign manager Dennis Lennox was hired by the former trooper and legislator after it was determined that he was personally responsible for a long string of Republican losses. Lennox reportedly said "What can I say? Its not everyone who has such consistent results," and when questioned about his last paying job, he simply replied "please talk to my attorney."

    Stupak was recently recruited by Michigan Democrats by newly installed Dem Chair Lon Johnson. Johnson who lives in the 1st district apparently still 'owed one' to the former congressman not for political favors, but from "that time when he was a trooper and was really cool and let me off with a warning." according to Johnson.

    The endorsement of Gillman is seen as a wise strategic move by Team Stupak, and is expected to move all the big [liberal] money in the Republican primary to a non incumbent.

    Yup.  $1,055.69 buys wannabe malefactors for Team Karl Rove GOPe Progressives.  As was noted throughout the blogosphere, the above is the face of who pushes Matt Jones.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    RightMichigan.Com Endorses Blake Edmonds For Michigan Republican Party Youth Chair

    By JGillman, Section News

    Though we apply a decent dose of critique and praise at times, we don't always officially endorse from here.

    History will demonstrate that its hard to do so, without a near guarantee at some point that we eat crow.  Some folks make mistakes, and we might even be associated with those mistakes when, and if, that time comes.  In fact, associations are often a good indication of a candidate's character, or at the very least, his or her ability to discern the good from the bad.  An occasional judgment lapse doesn't define a person, and as well, a minor success or effort does not either. However, we must embrace those who bring the whole package in a productive manner.

    We must look at the big picture.

    Today, we start with the recognition that our young voters have not only been misled by current political events, but their indoctrination in our failing public education system completes the corrosive understanding of government and politics.  Folks, we recognize the need to concentrate first and foremost on that big picture by stepping up our outreach to our younger voters and activists. We need to embrace them.  Not only to rebuild their trust in traditional conservative values as espoused in our Republican platforms, but get them involved as it is THEIR future we are fighting for.

    To reach them, RightMichigan.Com endorses the selection of Blake Edmonds for the Michigan Republican Party Youth Chair.

    Blake has been fortunate enough to have had a solid family values background, a sense of self reliance, work ethic, and skills that have allowed him to develop a college Republican organization that has kept the interest of his peers for more than a single meeting.  He is willing to expand upon those skills statewide with a realistic strategy of growth by inclusion and involvement. This last point cannot be over-emphasized. Without a sense of belonging, its hard to rally the effort needed to win elections and spread a constitutional Republican message. A history of his efforts point to a likelihood of success as youth Chair.

    We note the clearly conservative voices in support of Blake as well with Jen Gratz (HERO of Michigan's MCRI effort) Sarah Ledford, (incumbent youth chair) Jeff Sakwa, (2012 candidate, MSU trustee) and Dave Agema, who has demonstrated that there is room in the Republican party for ethical conservative leadership. On Blake's site one can find some quite favorable commentary.   Association with these conservative stalwarts, along with a well considered plan of action, complemented by results already achieved by bringing a conservative Republican message to our youth, seals the deal.

    A last word needs to be said however.  for Blake, and others whom we may endorse in the next few days, it is important that he is allowed to accomplish what needs to be done.  That requires a commitment to a party environment that fosters inclusion.  Clearly, it would be helpful to consider a change at the top of our state party, so that such talent is not held back by a repressive central control.

    And THAT, We will address shortly.

    Not Exactly A Surprise

    Tonight was the Dartmouth College Republican Presidential Primary Debate, sponsored by Bloomberg and livestreamed courtesy of the Washington Post.  Truthfully, I'm a little bummed that Gary Johnson wasn't invited, as I'd love to see another of his one-liners.  However, as disappointing as that is, what may be more disturbing (if not exactly unexpected) is an endorsement that was made today in the exact same city as tonight's debate.

    SAFR Endorses COX

    Tags: Mike Cox, 2nd amendment, Gun Rights, SAFR, NRA, Constitution, Endorsement (all tags)

    Mike Cox has Received the endorsement from Shooters Alliance for Firearm Rights.

    I know we have talked about the NRA recently, and SAFR became part of the discussion.  SAFR is definitely one of the smaller representatives of Gun Owners rights, but seems to represent the true nature of the 2nd Amendment better than some other gun groups.

    It was a win for the Cox campaign to see Mike Cox receive the SAFR endorsement, an important point made as the Shooters Alliance for Firearm Rights (SAFR) PAC, is one of the stronger pro-2nd Amendment leaders, with activists and voters across the state.  AG Cox issued the following statement:

    "As a Marine, prosecutor and Michigan's Attorney General I swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and I will continue to defend our gun rights as governor.  I am honored to stand side-by-side with pro-2nd Amendment leaders, activists and voters at the Shooters Alliance for Firearm Rights in the fight to protect the right to keep and bear arms."

    Note that its NOT JUST about hunting...

    KEWADIN - A former state lawmaker from Northern Michigan and a current representative from Clinton and Gratiot counties have endorsed Greg MacMaster, Republican candidate for the 105th District House seat.

    Former state Sen. Walter North of St. Ignace offered his endorsement on Tuesday after MacMaster discussed challenges facing the state with North, who also was executive chairman of the Mackinac Bridge Authority.

    "I am extremely honored that Senator Walt North has endorsed my campaign." MacMaster said after the meeting. "I would be truly honored to continue his legacy in the Legislature and Northern Michigan."

    The other endorsement from state Rep Paul Opsommer:

    "In these tough economic times we need tough-minded representatives who can make the hard choices that will put Michigan back to work, and Greg is that person,"
    And,   "Greg brings to the table the values and integrity Lansing so badly needs."

    "Representative Opsommer is a key Republican and is well respected in the Legislature," MacMaster stated. "I am looking forward to working with him in January after I am elected."

    Endorsement for 105th District State House Seat

    We are in the midst of a series of crisis that calls for absolute understanding in the primary cycle where the conservatives and moderates stand.  Never have we had to consider absolutes in such a way that a yes or no question was imperative as today.  

    YES or NO..  Taking a stand and committing to principle, instead of some wishy washy nuanced approach that is designed to maximize votes and not hurt any feelings.  True conservative principle that has no room for an intrusive government. Our leaders need to be transparent in their core convictions, the part of them which drives their actions on our behalf.

    They also need to be upstanding.
