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?
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.
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?
In a move that I heard rumblings about them for some time now, but felt they had slightly more of a chance of existing than, say, The Nain Rouge, Dogman, The Little Blue Man or even Luke The Spook, The Detroit News reported today that a group calling themselves “Republicans and Independents for Whitmer” have finally made their existence known.
Yes, the name is exactly what is says, although the “republicans” in the aforementioned name aren’t even on the radar when it comes to promoting anything even remotely close to Conservative Values.
Calling them RINO’s would actually be a complement to them.
I’m a little pressed for time today and have to keep this short, but will share one quick quite from Sen. Shirkey and Rep. Chatfield on these knuckleheads before I have to run.
“Anyone claiming to be a ‘Republican for Whitmer’ is someone opposed to lower taxes, limited government and fiscal responsibility.”
I will be touching on that glaringly obvious problem within the Michigan GOP and expanding on this post a little later.
The video on the right appeared amidst the nonsense of a US senate race elsewhere. It is probably the only time in your life you will see the word “penis” in a seriously considered political video. (The ad is actually STILL posted on her official site – I have saved a copy as well)
The “P” word in this ad, is of course used to make sure that the viewers are advised that those who wear the aforementioned appliance are to be viewed with suspicion and disdain. That we cannot wait to show it off in just about every environment. In short, that “Men are evil pigs.”
Aside from the absurdly overblown reaction to the false accusations of events supposedly 4 decades past, this candidate displayed a bizarre sense of propriety and judgement. It was not enough for her to simply ‘hate men’ and let us know that the memberful sex was to be feared, but she actually believes that leaving such inculcation present and viewable during a statewide political contest is wise.
Tomorrow she might say something very different to salvage any middle of the road Dems, but folks have been wising up to the extremist views held by Democrat candidates. Gretchen Whitmer bobble-heads her agreement to abolishing our immigration enforcement in this video.
“I think we need a governor, who will stand up to the federal government” she says. As governor, she COULD make enforcement of our borders problematic.
Bill Schuette is immediately ready to face down the failed ideas of the left.
The left is bereft of ideas.
Well, maybe not ‘bereft’, but the ideas they have are generally failed attempts at creating equal outcomes instead of promoting equal opportunity. Socialism, a well documented catastrophe of civilization’s epoch is now the new norm for the Democrat party. The tragedy of the ‘best intentions’ has no equal in ways of starving and inciting misery in otherwise viable populations.
Bill Schuette, having earned the nomination of the Republican party is wasting no time challenging the nominee of the Democrats. In a press release today he appears confident that a comparison of her record and rhetoric will expose the regressive policies of those who once upon a time preferred to be called ‘progressive.’
