Michigan Politics

Michigan Political considerations.

Do Not Let the Establishment Demoralize You!

Following the 2020 election, the feeling of something being very wrong in this country hit its pinnacle with millions of Americans.

Over the years, we have endured an increasing more corrupt government, a dishonest media, a rigged financial system, increased crime, and a drastic loss of civil liberties, and Draconian corporate censorship. So much has happened and from so many different angles, that it has become difficult to keep up with it all.

Yet throughout this assault on the hard-working majority, by a well-funded and well-publicized lunatic fringe, Americans have kept the faith and kept fighting for their liberties. Such is the case with grassroots activists fighting for our freedoms, best exemplified by Michigan State Rep. Matt Maddock.

If there was any doubt as to whether or not an education actually means being intelligent.

This post is going to be a little bit of what happened to me yesterday (and I’m pretty sure that some of you will be able to relate to it) and a little bit from my inbox.

I finally had a chance to spend some time with my friends over the weekend whom I haven’t seen in a while due to the unknown virus from unspecified origin ™. To put it very, mildly things didn’t go very smoothly.

These are friends (and they still are) that I’ve had going back several decades now. We don’t see eye-to-eye on all things politically. Despite that, we still got along over all that time and doing things that friends normally do for one another like helping each other out here and there and attending each other’s family events.

That ended about two years ago when they went into pretty much full lockdown mode, not wanting to have anything to do with anyone. Until last weekend, any attempts to meet earlier have crashed and burned when they would only agree to meet if certain ”precautions” were taken (mask wearing, “vaccine” status, meeting only in medically “safe” parts of the state, etc.).

I’m not 100% sure of what had changed.

Quite honestly, I didn’t care.

They were still my friends and I was still interested in meeting with them after they had finally agreed to drop their ludicrous conditions.

As sad as that is for them, how they choose to live their own lives is their concern. I had been living my life as close to normal as I could without succumbing to the fear and paranoia created by the propaganda promulgated by the government.

Speaking of which…

What???

I commented last week regarding President Trump’s visit to Washington last week.

Obviously, the legacy media wasn’t going to provide the most glowing coverage of his speech (For the record: They did not).

Oh sure, they had a presence there. Hanging on his every word (along with those speaking there as well). Waiting for that one moment they can glom onto so that they can rebroadcast it as a snippet during the evening news as proof-positive their gaslighting was justified.

Why they consistently fail to display the same level of journalistic integrity when it came to covering “the most popular president in history” ™…well, I’ll leave that up to you.

See the latest example below:

Allow me to go into some of what they didn’t report about, and what some of the rationale is behind it.

Just one more won’t hurt.

I just wanted to dove-tail on an earlier post made by Jason regarding SB-653 to institute a museum tax on Southeastern Michigan.

Well, not ALL of Southeastern Michigan.

Even the backers of this heaping, steaming pile of legislative waste sponsored by the entire Michigan Senate democrat caucus realized that well is running dry, so they were going to focus on the easier marks in Oakland & Wayne Counties instead.

No, I’m not kidding.

They didn’t call them easy marks directly, per se (that would’ve been too obvious), but they did spell out their plan when they went before the Michigan Senate Committee last December to push for this little shakedown.

Check it out for yourself, it’s a short video cued up to the best part. OABTW, be sure to check it out at the 5:23 mark regarding the “Time sensitivity with the bill”

 

So, what insulting here?

Oh, the fact that not only did four “republicans”, namely Sen. Ken Horn, Sen. Curt VanderWall, Sen. Kim LaSata, Sen. Mark Huizenga, voted to move this bill out of committee, instead of letting it die a slow death, but they voted to have it take immediate effect!

Now, why would a “republican” from Frankenmuth vote to promote a tax hike in Oakland & Wayne Counties?

Better yet, where is that same zeal shown in the video to let Taxpayers know how that money is being spent?

Or better yet, to allow communities to opt out of this grift?

Stay tuned…

We want to work on people until they can no longer resist us.

There is something distinctly un-Canadian about not being civil.

It’s distressing to state publicly that a republic which has at its core foundation a freedom of not only speech, but of the press as well, having no compunctions seeing those two bedrock principles quickly being twisted into ersatz versions of themselves. Worse yet, no one seeming to care.

But, what else did you expect when people in power are not only challenged, by are visible threatened by those challengers?

New Years Eve Eve

Going to be a live stream with a bunch of active conservative types on FaceFart.  It could be an entertaining night

From Rescue Michigan’s Adam de Angeli:

It’s going to be one heck of a live stream, with commentary from some of the hardest-working and most effective grassroots leaders in the Michigan conservative movement.

We’ll be recapping 2021: the good news and bad, the victories and defeats. We’ll be sharing what we know, what we’ve learned, and what’s in store for 2022.

If you cannot possibly tune in live, the show will be archived for viewing at your convenience, but if you can join us, we hope you will.

It’s not just our panel of guests, it’s the live interaction with all of you in the chat that make these shows so worthwhile.

It’ll be a marathon of a show, so it will, in large part, be a free-form conversation, with our guests and all of you that fight in the trenches to preserve and restore our great tradition of liberty in America.

There will be a lot of discussion, reflection, and a strong dose of levity for these trying times.

Looking at the cast..  It ought to be interesting.

The feedback alone would be worth the price of the ticket.

It’s Time for a Grassroots Reality Check

Since at least Jan.6 – when it became abundantly clear that the election would be stolen and Trump would be ousted from the White House – the grassroots has been its own worst enemy.

Conservatives throughout the madness of a stolen election and the unprecedented fallout have grown increasingly desperate, relying on false idols to pied piper them with false hope and becoming increasingly unmoored to objective reality. In doing so they have empowered the RINOs and the far-left radicals by living up to the most caricatured portrayals of conservatives as humiliating, deranged crackpots who are not worth taking seriously.

Just look at all of the failures and dead ends that conservatives, populists, patriots, America Firsters, freedom lovers, and so forth have pursued over the past year.

We all hoped that the “Kraken” lawsuits offered by Sidney Powell and many other attorneys to challenge election fraud would come to fruition. They did not.

We all hoped that the Arizona forensic audit would be a game changer and have cascading ramifications throughout the country. Instead, it fizzled.

We all hoped there would be a “plan” of sorts from the Trump White House to deal with election fraud that everyone could see coming from a mile away. No such plan ever existed.

We heard how the military was going to reinstate Trump – mind you, the same military filling its leadership ranks with transgender communists who believe in critical race theory – but that never happened.

We heard that the white hats were going to deliver, under the jurisdiction of Jeff Sessions or Bill Barr, with serious investigations and indictments over deep state crimes. Instead, all the conspirators got away scot free and now enjoy well-paid positions in government, media and the corporate sector.

Can we sense a pattern here? Disinformation agents put out fantastical notions to keep the grassroots satiated, that never even come close to coming to fruition, and by the time that the previous predictions have failed, the same buffoons who led the grassroots astray rush headlong into their next narrative of gibberish or look for scapegoats to avoid capability.

Stupidity

Proving once again, that Republicans can be as moronic and ignorant as Democrats

Don’t ever let your kids or the dog drive your car.

That might be a good idea if the ‘bi-farcian’ sponsors of HB5272 have their way, anyhow. On Tuesday at 9am, the Michigan House Judiciary Committee will take up testimony on House Bill 5272, which would authorize state and local police to use un-manned “photo radar” machines to issue speeding tickets on Michigan roads. Language in the bill actually says you are presumed guilty until proven innocent:

(4) In a prosecution for a violation of this section, prima facie evidence that the vehicle described in the citation issued was operated in violation of this section, together with proof that the defendant was at the time of the violation the registered owner of the vehicle, creates a rebuttable presumption that the registered owner of the vehicle was the individual who committed the violation. The presumption is rebutted if the registered owner of the vehicle files an affidavit by regular mail with the clerk of the court that he or she was not the operator of the vehicle at the time of the alleged violation or testifies in open court under oath that he or she was not the operator of the vehicle at the time of the alleged violation. The presumption also is rebutted if a certified copy of a police report, showing that the vehicle had been reported to the police as stolen before the time of the alleged violation of this section, is presented before the appearance date established on the citation. For purposes of this subsection, the owner of a leased or rented vehicle shall provide the name and address of the individual to whom the vehicle was leased or rented at the time of the violation.

Those are a couple of iffy “if” statements there comrades.

Perhaps these losers: Gary Eisen (district 81) Joseph Bellino, Gregory Markkanen, David Martin, Ben Frederick, Robert Bezotte, Pat Outman, Beth Griffin, David LaGrand, Julie Brixie might get a call or a letter from their misrepresented constituents?
