Did you catch the story about the democrats plan to address health care in America? As if, Obamacare isn’t as much of a spectacular train wreck as it is. Probable not, it seems that Team “d” is still working out how to package it, in order to make it palatable to voters.
Did you catch the story about the democrats plan to “reform” tax rates? The economic wunderkind from The Bronx is looking at taking 70% of your paycheck before you even see it. Her muslim comrade house colleague is shooting for 90%. Again, probably not.
Now, this might come as a shock to most readers, but despite the top-notch job for what passes for news media here in America today, (I know, I know, that whole “global warming”-thing really took a toll on everyone last week), President Trump will be giving his State of the Union Speech this Tuesday from the floor of the US House Chambers.
What might be part of that speech you may ask yourself?
Women for Trump is thrilled to team up with 100% Fed Up to host a “Build the Wall” rally in Bloomfield Hills on Saturday January 26th.
The “Build the Wall” rally will be an outdoor event and it will be held rain (snow) or shine. Dress for the weather. Flags, posters and handmade signs are encouraged.
We are encouraging everyone to come out. The latest ABC poll shows strong support for the wall. Let’s show President Trump that Michigan voters support him.
“The legacy media and the Washington, D.C. politicians have it all wrong,” said Marian Sheridan, co-founder of Michigan Trump Republicans and candidate for MRP Grassroots Vice Chair. “Women support President Trump’s strong leadership to secure our southern border. Are mothers really ‘against’ reduced drugs flowing into the country or really ‘against’ reduced human trafficking? Women and their families need to come out to this rally to show support for Trump!”
“Also at this rally, we’ll have a “brick wall” petition to sign to show your support of enhanced border security,” said Sheridan. “This petition will be signed at numerous Trump events, then sent to the White House to show the broad Michigan support.”
While this rally will be an outdoor event, a warming facility will be available with bathrooms and refreshments.
With the much under-reported partial federal government “shut-down” being eclipsed by the battle over The Wall by President Trump, who is aggravating the republican swamp-dwellers by actually keeping his campaign promise, compared to recalcitrant democrats claiming that the entire concept is “immoral”, what passes for an unbiased press is hoping that you’ll pay more attention to the shinny object (aka The Wall debate) rather than what is really happening in America.
There are a couple of stories making the rounds, that taken individually, might not pique everyone’s interest for very long, but taken collectively should be sounding alarm bells at the highest levels of what passes for leadership in the Michigan Republican Party.
Especially considering who was the actual cause behind it.
I’ve got to admit, I was more than a little underwhelmed at last night’s speech.
A quick check of what is available on the speech easily corroborates the MSM spin-machine rushing into action to provide cover for their own side.
Obviously video from C-Span nor The White House itself was readily available.
Nothing really new was actually said, and that’s the problem (more on that in a bit).
Pres. Trump reiterated his position, albeit in an un-Trump-like fashion (very measured and scripted).
Team d, who looked more like two p.o.’d parents ready to scold their teenager for coming home after curfew, were just dripping with emotion of how NOT having the American Government performing non-essential functions (which just begs the question of why we are even paying for them in the first place), can be quickly and easily remedied if only Pres. Trump would acquiesce.
Sorry, scooter! Pres. Trump already did that multiple times already via Beavis & Butt-Head (aka Lyin’ Ryan & Squish McConnell).
IMHO, Pres. Trump went about it the wrong way. He used words, when imagery would’ve been far more effective.
Below is a very small sampling of what I mean (just wait for Chuck’s comment in the clip below):
Actions from the “friendly & peaceful migrants” from just last week.
Actions from the “friendly & peaceful migrants” from just last month.
People make resolutions (which they‘ll most likely break before February 1st).
Another session of Congress prepares to ramp up in the midst of a government “shutdown”.
The democrats give President Trump more posturing and obstructionism because…well, illegal aliens (and Americans on the public dole) matter significantly more to them than the safety of the people who actually put them in office in the first place.
The Michigan GOP Establishment achieves its objective…
The Michigan GOP Establishment achieves its objective…
2010 was a benchmark year for conservatives…”Flip the House” was the Tea Party battle cry, and Nancy Pelosi handed the House gavel to John Boehner…The ensuing MIGOP convention saw Dave Agema elected to the RNC over establishment Saul Anuzis, and the establishment held off a serious challenge to the party leadership by defeating the conservative challengers for the State Chair by 71 votes…The “Old Guard” realized they had a significant problem, and set about to to correct it almost immediately…They infiltrated Tea party groups around the state, neutralizing conservative efforts by gaining control of county and regional Tea Party groups, and rendering them mostly harmless…They packed the State and District Committees with a many establishment types as possible, and began changing the rules, or ignoring the established rules to secure their advantage…Voice votes at conventions were used against conservatives in place of ballot votes the establishment knew they would lose…
Conservatives that managed to get elected to offices within county GOP parties became targets also…Our precinct delegates that nearly stole the State convention were also on the establishment hit lists…The CD1 Chairmanship was rigged to elect Jesse Osmer over Adrian Pelousse by a single vote, the establishment pulled out all the stops in that instance…Party and District rules were ignored, slates were printed on the pencils used to mark ballots that were illegally collected and tallied…Elected officials that owed their office to the conservative movement betrayed the very people that put them there…The list goes on, and for most of you reading this, you know these are the facts…because you were there…Even local politics became tainted with the establishment purge…After helping several candidates for the Kalkaska Commission win their seats, and turn a 5-2 Democrat advantage into a 4-3 GOP Commission, I (and others) was literally blackballed from my own County party…Funny how now and again I still get asked for help…
In 2010 we gave them the US House, we gave them Snyder and both houses in the State legislature, in 2016 we gave them the Senate and Donald Trump…In return they gave us higher taxes and a utility monopoly in Michigan, the perpetuation of ObamaCare, and now recreational pot, bureaucratic redistricting, and no fault absentee voting…Soon to come are the National Popular Vote, and the destruction of the Constitution via a Convention of States…The more Republicans we elect, the more they act like Democrats…The result was predictable, and secured November 6th…With the conservative purge nearly complete, they gave us ballot proposals that only served to attract Democrat votes, and a candidate for Governor guaranteed to lose, not to mention giving the US House BACK to Nancy Pelosi…
Yes, the establishment won…Funny, I don’t see anyone celebrating…
