Gretch and the Dems are promoting Gilchrist II as a socially conscious black man from the city, who once worked for Obama and is an expert at Twitter. Black, notwithstanding, the neighbors here view him as another profiteering hipster from the suburbs. A guy with connections, a guy who used to work for the mayor, a guy who’s out for himself.
What more could would we expect from opportunist Democrat politicians. Who couldn’t see such things coming from leaders of the new #MOB ?
I was reminded today of the real treasure Gretchen Whitmer has become. (H/T CS)
In this video she singlehandedly takes on the novelty lighter cartel. “Novelties are like toys!” She says eagerly playing with them to demonstrate how easily a child is transfixed by such captivating shapes and sounds. The danger we all face as a consequence is just too much!
If you throw up in your mouth a little knowing this person could possibly be the next governor for our great state?
Gretchen Whitmer is no friend to hunters, sports shooters, or those who self defend.
The reality when looking at the gubernatorial race is that #thePartyOfCrime (as a rule) is not the gun owner’s friend.
We have had Michigan Democrats who claim they do not want to take your guns, but then speak of enhanced registration, or further limits on where lawful gun carrying might take place. There have been legitimate Dem politicos (Bart Stupak for one) who even faced personal firearm tragedy and yet was honorable enough to respect our 2A tradition.
Those days are gone however, and the reality of the zombie #MOB Democrats is upon us.
The ACA, a health insurance mandate conveniently had lines of [code] within it to begin stealth registry of gun owners through doctor visits. Gretchen Whitmer and other gun grabbers pushed it hard for Michigan.
Whitmer has in the past called for enhanced background checks, extended waiting lists and red flag bills that can deny due process to those with supposed mental problems and depression. (where could THAT possibly go wrong?) She has also spoken on prohibitions of ‘assault weapons,’ wherever the hell that definition falls on any day of the week.
Michigan’s sporting heritage may not be at risk in the immediate future from some of these minor tweaks that Gretchen Whitmer and today’s Democrats #Mobs advocate, but is it worth the risk?
Halloween can be spooky enough without this ghoul stalking law abiding gun owners.
Schuette fights 'misleading' health care claim, attacks Whitmer's vote cutting AG rate oversight
It had to happen eventually.
The theft by BCBS of Michigan of BILLIONS in taxpayer dollars may now be looked at a little more closely. And all it took was much of that money being used to promote Gretchen Whitmer’s candidacy for governor.
Whitmer, who’s father once ran Blue Cross, has been working the former insurer-of-last-resort for Michigan for her campaign finances. Her actions with regard to policy have reflected the cozy connection that has existed between her and the organization that controlled over $4billion in cash reserves as Michigan’s protected underwriter.
Bill Schuette rightly called out Whitmer today for this relationship, raising so many questions about who Gretchen Whitmer has been working for. Is it the well connected fat cats who run health care policy with billions of taxpayer funded dollars? Or is it the taxpayers, who have seen their premiums skyrocket, and insurance worsen by her actions?
Corruption is real. There is big money in healthcare. It would be a huge mistake for anyone to assume that because she is a Democrat, that it ain’t about taking the money.
6 Republicans cancel appearance at LWV event in Traverse City
It might as well be a Democrat forum.
Republican commission candidates in Grand Traverse County Michigan are through with the league of women voters.The league has always been ‘suspect’ but appeared to be respectful, and provided a forum to all candidates with no spoken bias.
However, after CEO of the national League of Women Voters was arrested for engaging in civil disobedience protesting the Kavanaugh nomination, it was clear the illusion of neutrality has been blown. There can be no way that the LWV can be trusted to perform such informational services without bias, and that their ‘neutrality’ is for IRS purposes only.
Well, to some – it is “the quickest way to kill a good romance.”
To a live-in girlfriend, it might be a piece of paper that guarantees she will get some money for all the time she invested in a bad relationship.
To others it is the answer to most of their problems – and still others it is where most of the problems began.
Turning to our first reading, however, we find that God conducted the first wedding in the Garden of Eden. Hence, we find this possible definition: It is the union of one man and one woman by the will of God into a growing relationship of love for life.
Biblically speaking, marriage fulfills four purposes God has for mankind.
The first is to populate the earth. In Genesis 1:28 God tells Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply.”
The second is to avoid loneliness. In our opening verse we find that for the first time in the creation account something is NOT good. God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone.”
The third purpose is to satisfy sexual desires. In 1 Corinthians 7:9 Paul says, “. . .it is better to marry than to burn with passion.”
And the fourth is to build character so as to produce godly children. This is found in Malachi 2:15, “Has not the Lord made them one?” And why one? Because He was seeking godly offspring.”
Of course, one of the the most damaging situations for any relationship is one’s own demeanor. If one is content or happy with their own life, then they will most likely extend that contentment or happiness into the relationship.
And it is also true that most relationships benefit from both persons bringing this type of attitude into the relationship.
There has been an impressive amount of grassroots fervor that has resulted from the National Popular Vote push by Republican legislators in Lansing.
As I am sure you are aware, the National Popular Vote scheme would destroy the electoral college and game our system so that voters in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, and other liberal-dominated population centers would control the entire nation forevermore. It would have meant Hillary Clinton winning the Presidency in 2016, and all the power of Michigan voters would effectively be nullified.
After it was revealed that Republicans were wined and dined with a trip to Hawaii and other lavish trips paid for by lobbyists, outrage erupted immediately. Legislators were inundated with calls and emails from angry constituents, and we were given assurances that the legislation in the state House and Senate to enact NPV was dead. House Speaker Tom Leonard admitted as much.
“I support the electoral college and the Constitution as our framers intended,” Leonard said to journalist Brandon Hall. “I have no interest in taking this bill up during the rest of my tenure as Speaker.”
There have always been ideological differences between Ds and Rs and some other variations of the political spectrum.
What has held this country together however, is shared experience, similar desires for prosperity, and common pursuits that are rooted in the similar values. The nation has survived, thrived, and become stronger because of this. Our state and federal constitutions reflect the principle foundations upon which we as society agree to govern ourselves upon.
There are people however, that have been trying to twist those commonalities. Recent suggestions that there is ‘polarization’ in our state and country are largely true. Although conservatives and traditionalists can rightly argue that there has been little shift in their beliefs and mores, there can be no question the separation of ‘left’ and ‘right’ is growing.
We are a nation under siege from within.
In the video on the right, Whitmer’s extremist gubernatorial pick, displays a perfect example of what ‘Change’ has meant since we first heard that simple word used in the 2008 presidential elections.
“Movement to win this election. Because we need a movement to actually lead in Michigan. Movements are what make change happen. Movements are what deliver legislative wins. Movements are how we get to redefine the values in Michigan.”
We are the change we have been waiting for, right?
