Doing something right for a change.

There was a story which a friend of mine passed along to me several years ago regarding early American History, specifically relating to government spending, which I immediately enjoyed and still remember to this day.

It focused on a conversation between one Davy Crockett and a constituent by the name of Horatio Bunce, regarding an appropriations bill in the US House of Representatives. Mr. Bunce took issue with not only the speed the appropriation was made, but why it was even made in the first place. During their conversation, he also drove that point solidly home by reminding the then campaigning Rep. Crockett:

“The people have delegated to Congress, by the Constitution, the power to do certain things. To do these, it is authorized to collect and pay moneys, and for nothing else. Everything beyond this is usurpation, and a violation of the Constitution.”

Let’s just say that Rep. Crockett had an interesting response to that situation to say the least (along with how it guided his future decisions).
So, what does a discussion nearly two centuries ago have to do with Michigan Politics today?

Bipartisanship

Our representatives want to help.

Democrats and Republicans want to be on the same page while fighting the Kung Flu.

So reps Annette Glenn, and Mary Whiteford are taking no chances.  They have offered to assist the governor of Michigan in making sure that no medical product channels are being blocked in Michigan.

Whiteford the Chair, and Glenn as committee member of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Health and Human Services, have penned a letter to the governor offering their leverage and help if in fact there are shenanigans (as the governor alleges) that would block life saving assistance from being distributed in Michigan.

They issued the letter below today :

Gov. Gretchen “Half” Whitmer Strikes Again: Normalize Election Fraud

This is a complete abomination orchestrated by Soros’ flunky Jocelyn Benson, that I’m happy to see SML Shirkey, and Senator Johnson, have stated firm opposition.

The order was swiftly opposed by Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, who argued the May elections should be delayed instead. He cautioned against “decisions made in haste” and asked Whitmer to “reconsider this misstep.”

“Our Governor has authorized the Secretary of State to send absentee ballots to individuals who apply to register to vote without first ensuring proper verification,” Shirkey said. “This unilateral change to how we secure our elections has the potential to invite fraud and security concerns that may last well beyond the circumstances of today.”

Correct, SML Shirkey, that is what the game plan has been all along. Shutter a nation then, vote by mail.

SEMCOG Update: “hot spots” Edition

The more that things over time change, the more they stay the same. Ignoring it will not change a thing.

Information from State data as of March 28, 2020.

Livingston County- 31 – 1 death

Macomb County- 404 – 14 deaths

Monroe County- 28

Oakland County- 834 – 26 deaths

St. Clair County- 15

Washtenaw County- 150 – 3 deaths

Wayne County & Detroit City- 1,810 – 37 death

Total- 3,262 or, 89.19% of all confirmed cases of the China Virus and 88.04% of all deaths (81).

Isolating the core problem is the only logical step to make across the country.

Thank you, Mr. President! Americans want to get back to work. This is what real leadership looks like, not like imposing a knee-jerk economic shutdown from Gov. Gretchen “Half” Whitmer using the Democrats playbook to sink our economy by putting Michiganians out of work and shuttering business that bureaucrats in Lansing deem as ‘non-essential.’

Yet Another “Leading” From Behind Moment

https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/michigan/2020/03/27/whitmer-pushes-income-tax-filing-deadline-july/2925356001/

“Last week, the Trump administration extended the federal income tax deadline to July 15.”

So basically, greasy forehead Gretchen got herself elected as governor and all she has accomplished for Michiganians is she earned herself a nickname.

Heh! I truly do love our President.

Message Received

Michigan's LARA backslides on its jack-boot thuggery - A Little.

Someone whispered into her ear: “If you don’t find a way to walk that threat made to doctors back, you will find a Stiletto jammed up your backside so fast ..”

The Director of Michigan’s Licensing agency Debra Gagliardi has ‘refined’ her message to suggest that all they were talking about with regard to Hydroxychloriquine was that hoarding was a concern.  Though not entirely sanctioning the use of the antimalarial drug as a cure for this new public health threat, the softened tone of LARA in its newest release is clear: “Doctors do what you gotta do!”

Restoration PAC Releases NEW John James Ad

Ad scheduled to start airing tomorrow reminds that Peters is just an AOC follower.

DOWNERS GROVE, IL – Restoration PAC today announced a new statewide TV ad buy in the Michigan Senate race drawing the distinction between dynamic outsider John James and go-with-the-flow career politician Gary Peters.

Restoration PAC has been a strong supporter of James since 2017.

The :30 ad airs across Michigan starting Saturday and runs two weeks. The buy is approximately $280,000. It will be supplemented by at least $10,000 in digital advertising.

The new ad again hits Peters on his cagey support of the Green New Deal. Peters told the Detroit News he supports “many aspects” of the radical plan, but has been non-responsive about specifics.

“I can’t think of a contest anywhere in America where voters will have a starker choice,” said Restoration PAC founder Doug Truax. “On one hand, you have John James, a combat veteran and accomplished outsider with fresh ideas versus Gary Peters, a reliable, go-along career politician who supports many aspects of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.”

Restoration PAC’s first Michigan TV ad aired last November and focused on Peters’ non-specific support for the Green New Deal.

Restoration PAC was formed in 2015 and since has become one of the most effective conservative SuperPACs in America. It has focused primarily on U.S. Senate races but has also launched TV and digital advertising in the 2016 presidential race and several House races.
