Idiots In Grand Rapids – Patriots in Houghton Lake?

'Leadership' discourages grass roots participation when they need it most - if only to give the scheme credibility.

The shortsightedness of the so-called MI Republican Leadership of not allowing duly elected delegates access to their roles as they assume their coup derived ‘authority’

Foolishness is the hallmark of losers

Dear 1st District Delegates to Convention,


In the wake of the court orders in Kent County against Kristina Karamo, we are left with few options in our fight to save the grassroots movement in the Michigan Republican Party.
Here’s what you need to know right now :
1) The Secretary Angela Gillesse and Treasurer Jennifer Standefer still hold their titles in elected offices.
2) The Secretary has sent all of the credentials she received from your County Chairs to Mr. Foster of Mr. Hoekstra’s team, and 25 counties were DENIED credentials to the Grand Rapids Convention.
3) The repeated disregard for the established rules has caused irreparable harm to the delegates right to engage in the convention process.
I have been involved in the party for many years – many state conventions, served as a State Representative in Lansing, and as you know, a target of the Democrat Attorney General – and I have never seen anything like what has been playing out right now in our party.
Over the last year, you have been a victim of deceiving propaganda and fake news against our grassroots leader, who has been a fearless warrior for freedom.


Recent court orders prohibit Kristina from acting as Chair of the Michigan Republican Party (MRP) in any manner, and nullified all of the meetings she’s called since January 6, 2024. This puts us in a position where we have to pivot to next steps and take the fight in a new direction.

The newly declared administration of MRP appears to be inviting dissent, disregarding rules with the consent of their RNC allies and we will not play that game by falling into their plan.

Denying the majority of the Delegates elected at the County Conventions in the 1st District from attending the State District Convention is not acceptable. So, where does this leave us?

We have been eagerly awaiting decisions from the court, but we can no longer wait. Your county Call to Convention stated we shall convene on March 2nd, and that is what we will do. Your 1st District leadership has formulated a plan to hold this District Convention in Houghton Lake! We are working hard to make it a meaningful Convention with enjoyable events starting tomorrow night, March 1st! Stay tuned!


I understand this is a lot of information to digest, and it might be irregular. That said, this is the battle we signed up for at county convention, and we need you all to stick together and show up!
You have my pledge that your team will NOT stop fighting for you and for your rights as Republican delegates.

Thank you all for fighting for what is right.
