He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
May we all share our eternal lives in Him.
Washington — Michigan officials have provided congressional investigators with tens of thousands of documents related to the Flint water crisis since the start of the year.
The office of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is continuing to work “cooperatively” with the House Oversight and Reform Committee to produce the documents that the panel requested, Nessel spokesman Dan Olsen said this week.
“Our office has already supplied the committee with tens of thousands of pages of documents, and we are diligently working to send the rest,” Olsen said.
Olsen added that, while some of the records provided to the committee have been submitted previously, “most of these pages of documents are new.”
The Attorney General’s Office is sending the documents in response to Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings of Maryland, who in late December wrote to then-Gov. Rick Snyder asking he “fully comply” with the committee’s 2016 bipartisan request for documents related to the water crisis.
Well, there is a lesson to be learned in all this.
This is pure evil.
Lansing — Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said Tuesday she would not enforce a state abortion ban if federal protections are overturned, and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said she would veto any new anti-abortion legislation that reaches her desk.
The first-term Democrats promised a dramatically new approach to abortion and reproductive rights in Michigan during separate speeches at a Planned Parenthood of Michigan conference in Lansing.
“You’ve got a powerful backstop in a veto from my office,” Whitmer said. “But the goal is not just to stop bad things from happening. It’s to set an agenda that respects women and girls and family planning.”
Irresponsible women getting knocked up and owning their choices = bad. “Butchering” infant boys and girls = okay, got it?
Why are you seeing things like this occur in Jason’s post?
Whitmer, Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson make up an “amazing” “triumvirate of women that protect us all in the state,” Planned Parenthood of Michigan CEO Lori Carpentier said during an introduction.
Boobus Michiganderus you’re getting the government you elected.
Oh, by the way… why does the Detroit News reference Rick Snyder vetos in the article?
I have not always agreed with the Muskegon County commissioners, but even ‘a stopped clock ..’ as they say..
Commissioners voted 6-2 to evict Planned Parenthood from county property. They have three months to pick up their baby murdering kits and amscray.
Sorry, dear, go wash your coochee.
Rebecca Smith, 44, who’s serving at least 25 years at the Women’s Huron Valley Correctional Facility in Pittsfield Township for a 2010 murder conviction, filed a class-action lawsuit this week against the Michigan Department of Corrections, along with other unnamed inmates.
As if Gretchen’s threat of a government shutdown if gas taxes aren’t raised in total to 89¢ per gallon is not enough… More bullshit for us taxpayers to navigate and pay for.
Here’s the part that pisses me off.
Berkley, Michigan, in December 2002 and the body of Michael Lee Smith was found dumped in a ditch, he’d been shot twice and was wearing just a t-shirt and his wedding ring.
Detectives soon worked out that he’d been killed elsewhere and some family members told police he may have boarded a bus and headed out of town.
However, eventually the evidence led much closer to home and to his wife 32-year-old Rebecca Maureen Smith, who was arrested for his murder. She was eventually found guilty of second-degree murder and sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison.
Oh, please, please, please pick me as a jurist for the itchy scratchy class action lawsuit brought on by the murderer of her own husband.
I promise to remain impartial.
It’s sad to witness what an effeminate society our nation has deteriorated into, nevertheless, presenting Exhibit A.
For a traffic stop?🤦♂️ Watching such things, which are common events today, I struggle to relate with it as being reality. In my youth we were raised to be respectful not only to police officers but, also our elders. Perhaps, today that’s why garbage like this happens. Imagine if the office said to the precious snowflake, “here’s your ticket, you f****** a******.”?
Anyhoo, even more cringeworthy, on to Exhibit B
Peon scapegoats? After the Rick Snyder/Brian Calley Detroit bailout?
If the feds don’t smash this Ed McNamara politburo machine down, then there’s no point in building a wall. Not for Michigan families, anyway.
For some reason I have forgotten to get this up.

Michigan's new thought police effort violates the 1st and 14th Amendments according to lawsuit by AFLC
We’ve had a few minutes for it to settle in. But the bottom line is that Michigan’s newest Attorney General Dana Nessel is clearly using the power of the state to persecute those who would disagree with her worldview. To the level legally possible, she is using public monies to pressure those who have something to say to either shut up or be pilloried in the court of public opinion.
And this publicly funded defamation, riding under the guise of fighting ‘hate speech’ is being done indiscriminately, and lazily. Nessel’s new thought police unit is using a map to target, and developed by the SPLC, a private, ideologically driven legal services cult that frequently identifies churches or family organizations as hate groups.
One of those groups is having none of it.
In a lawsuit naming (the new hate crimes unit) DANA NESSEL, and AGUSTIN V. ARBULU (Michigan dept of civil rights director), the American Freedom Law Center has charged that Nessel has officially sanctioned the SPLC’s opinions as those of the state, putting groups like the AFLC officially under the umbrella of hate as described by a private entity. Officially sanctioning the partisan opinions with the use of taxpayer dollars and the authority of the office to punish free speech and educational activities engaged in by the AFLC.
Who owns the vineyard.
One of the questions I get, as a pastor, is how I go about writing a sermon. For me, it begins with a review of the scriptures we have been given for the week. I think all of you know that we are a tradition that uses the common lectionary, which is a three year cycle of readings, that includes an Old Testament reading, a Psalm, a New Testament Reading and a Gospel reading. I start by searching for one of the readings that might have a relevant message within in it.
When I read through the Gospel lesson, however, which was only verses 9-20, I was a little confused because the parable by itself made no sense at all. So, I pulled out one of my bibles and began reading from the beginning of the chapter and continued on a few verses beyond the parable. This is what I just read to you, and when I had the context of the situation it made much more sense to me. It was then that I could see that Jesus was begging the question, “who owns the vineyard?”
The chief priests, the scribes and the elders knew they had been bested by this question so they plotted further to trip Jesus up. So they send spies who pose the question of taxes. I am going to actually begin with that question, because it offers us a little context of the day.
The Jews of Jesus’ day were vexed at living under a foreign, pagan government, whose rule was enforced by an army of occupation. The Jews paid a land tax, an income tax, a poll tax, an import tax, and a tax on grain, wine, and oil. We may think we are heavily taxed today, but things were far worse in first century Israel. Well that is unless, of course, our current governor gets her way.
