  • Your New Scoop Site

    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.

    For support, questions, and general help with Scoop, email support@scoophost.com

S. Constitution Amendment X, State Sovereignty, constitutionally-restrained government, Supremacy Clause abuse, illusion of state control, bogus opt-out clause, "bait-and-switch" federal pitch, nullification vs. enabling, legislative malfeasance, liberty-minded network, acta non verba, empowered grassroots operation, sending a message, naming names and identifying targets, heavy-handed bifarceisanship, politician paper training, Rick Snyder, GoverNerd, #OneRoughTurd, Nerd King, Slick Rick, lower house losers, selective focus, 30th Biennial Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference, "Mastermind" vs. "Oracle", corinthian scales vs. absolute standard, Reagan's Eleventh Commandment, creeping progressivism (all tags)

    As House Bill 4714 (2013) was rapidly transitioning from "read a second time" to "substitute H-3 adopted and amended" to "placed on third reading" to "read a third time" to "placed on immediate passage" to "passed; given immediate effect" . . . yes, transitioning just that quickly (the proof starts on page 24 of House Journal # 59) . . . I was in conversation with, among others, Dara Bailey (Vice President & National Vetting Director of iCaucus National).  She offered to commit national resources to help the liberty-minded network in Michigan do what needs to be done to visit political punishment on every single legislative turncoat next summer.  All that we need to do as a statewide movement is to use Joanie's screencap of 2013 House Roll Call # 241 as a motivator to set aside our nationally infamous internecine squabbling, and work as a cohesive machine toward a larger goal.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    The Mechanics of Takeover

    By Kevin Rex Heine, Section News
    Posted on Thu Jan 31, 2013 at 09:24:49 AM EST
    Tags: integrity argument, patronage system, equality of merit, cleaning out closets, Schostak Must Go, Michigan "Dele-Gate" Fiasco, Anuzis Amendment to MIGOP Convention Rule # 9, Michigan's 11th Congressional District write-in campaign, Michigan Banana Republican Party, Republican County Conventions, Republican State Convention, District Caucuses, General Session, Robert's Rules of Order (all tags)

    As I published in June of last year, what the combined grassroots effort accomplished at the May Convention was impressive, but only the first battle of a much longer campaign that will be necessary in order to purge the Republican Party in Michigan (at every level) of the blueblood elites that have taken over the party establishment.  At the time, I mentioned that the reach of the broom needed to extend all the way down to the county executive committees where necessary, and I provided at strategic overview of what would need to be done to effect the end goal.  At this point, regardless of how it worked out, phases 1 through 4 are complete.  Since we only have four weeks to work with, we need to stay tightly focused on phase 5 of the plan, and we must use our time wisely.

    So with that in mind, grab a pot of coffee and a snack plate, and let's go below the fold.

    How To Replace Party Leadership

    I have more than once on this site cited a paraphrase of John F. Kennedy's warning:  Those who insist on making a peaceful takeover impossible will ultimately make a takeover by revolt inevitable, and perhaps even necessary.  Since we cannot seem to trust the blueblood elites in the establishment to get the message, let's go below the fold and discuss an idea to "grease the skids" for their removal from power.
