GOP Party Unity – Fact or Fiction

Trott_DavidbentivolioFabulously wealthy foreclosure attorney and generous friend of the GOP, David Trott, decides it’s time to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a United States Congressman.

He claims to be conservative, and Lord knows we need all we can get in Congress, so that should be a huge and appealing plus. But, instead of throwing his considerable assets and resources at a vulnerable and flaming liberal Congressman Sander Levin, who is older than dirt and an avowed leftist- Mr. Trott would instead prefer to challenge one our own, GOP freshman Congressman Kerry Bentivolio.

Granted, Trott does live in Bentivolio’s 11th Congressional District- but just barely.

Too Much Private Property

DNR-trust-2One of the little deals with the DNR and its ability to purchase land, is that it is limited.

Limited to 4,650,000 acres in fact, with some exceptions, and not more than 3,910,000 acres north of a line between Mason and Arenac counties, to be exact.

This means that the amount of land that is available for private use and development will not continue to shrink indefinitely.  It means that the revenues from oil and gas lease rights are not forever used to remove land from local tax rolls. It also means that overzealous misplaced urban planner graduates from the MSU school of property theft have one less tool in their belt of American dream destruction.

in 2012 Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, signed a common sense piece of legislation (huh.. how bout that) that put a check on the runaway property acquisition of the DNR, and the way in which it distorts property values and makes desirable land unavailable for private use.  The ONLY 5 Republicans Voting against the bill at that time were Jon Bumstead, (R) Holly Hughes, (R) Peter Pettalia, (R) Bruce Rendon, (R) and Wayne Schmidt, (R).  They and their Democrat property rights thieving counterparts were sent packing, as the bad ol Republican bullies put that limit on the quite literal GROWTH of government through land purchases.

Surprise, surprise, now they are back. And they brought friends. And they seem to think Michigan has too much private property available to it.

Little Ronna Romney Shuns a Republican District Manager and also a Army Veteran House Candidate

Unbelievable and this is most likely the new MIGOP national committee-girl? Can you say arrogant, self centered, immature, the feeling of entitlement because of the family name? Can you say “dele-gate” all over again?

A Ronna Romney Jr. 1

Little Ronna was hand picked by the establishment power brokers of the MIGOP before Terri Lynn Land even “quit” and by hook or by crook she will win mark my words!

By Thomas Norton – My question to all of you is, what do you expect out of our National Committeewoman?

Thomas Norton For 73rd District House

Myself, I would expect someone who cares about everyone who wants to be in the process.

Those email and direct mail solicitations – trust but verify

One of the more annoying parts of the political business is getting 6-7 emails a day from different groups asking for money. I’ve long given my opinion about donating to the NRSC or NRCC for various reasons. While I don’t donate to them at all, at least they spend their money on actual elections.

I got this one email the other day from something calling itself “Conservative Campaign Committee” claiming to be a Ted Cruz supporting PAC. I get about 3 emails a day from this group. I then saw the address from California. Why the hell would a Ted Cruz PAC be headquartered in California?

RNC: Another Romney? Really?

Nearly 40 years ago, in the wake of Watergate, Ronald Reagan said the following words to discouraged members of the Conservative Political Action Conference: “A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers.”

They rang true then, and now, as history repeats itself so-called “moderate” Republicans pushing its members to abandon their conservative values.

Please remember them and uphold the values of our last true conservative President by electing another true conservative, Mary Sears, as the new national committeewoman of the Michigan Republican Party.

Don’t be fooled by the other candidates, who, spawned by financially and politically powerful dynasties, hide behind the Republican Party banner while secretly maneuvering to push forward their dangerous liberal agendas with a little help from their friends—friends who have used their Republican Party connections to bring corruption and financial ruin to the doorsteps of Michigan taxpayers from Detroit to Flint to Lansing and in between.

Northern Michigan Shake Up

Challenging the Republican in the 107th District is Lee Chatfield, who decries incumbent Frank Foster’s votes to expand welfare, (medicaid expansion) Common Core, and an effort to amend the Elliott-Larsen [Civil Rights] Act.”

He might add to this; Cronyism and constituency rewards.

Below is a video of Lee Chatfield speaking in Petoskey. More information on his candidacy can be found at Izzy’s WatchDog Wire column.

The Only One

homer-constThe Michigan congressional delegation Republicans had the right idea with regard to Roll Call 61.

Except for Michigan’s very own captain courageous, Dave Camp.  Camp along with 27 other GOP congressional critters carried the water for Democrats and Barack Obama.

Maybe he was confused by the title of the bill that raised the debt ceiling?  Only in government, can a bill with the title:

To designate the air route traffic control center located in Nashua, New Hampshire, as the “Patricia Clark Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center”

be used to continue out of control spending by an unaccountable administration that needs to have its criminal leadership removed, not rewarded with more resources.

Going forward in Michigan’s 4ths congressional district, there IS another choice.
