Michigan Political considerations.

Kim you said Jose’s name, why not Vesta’s?

This is beyond insulting to one’s intelligence.

President Trump needs to direct AG William Barr to investigate this court.

The Nessel Doctrine

Dana Nessel doesn’t like the title of the pipeline law.

So much so, that she is using that as a reason to stop the Enbridge tunnel construction from happening.  From the state’s official propaganda service:

LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued her first formal legal opinion today, finding Public Act 359 of 2018 unconstitutional because its provisions go beyond the scope of what was disclosed in its title.   Governor Gretchen Whitmer had sought the Attorney General’s opinion on the constitutionality of Act 359 in a request submitted on January 1.

In her opinion, the Attorney General concludes that certain provisions of Act 359 – including those transferring all authorities related to a utility tunnel from the Mackinac Bridge Authority to the Straits Corridor Authority and requiring the Corridor Authority to enter into an agreement for the construction of a tunnel if a proposed agreement was presented by a specific date and met listed criteria – are unconstitutional because they violate Article 4, Section 24 of the Michigan Constitution, referred to as the Title-Object Clause.

Green New Squeal

Jeez, the Democratic Party is going down faster than Kamala did on Willie Brown.

Washington — The U.S. Senate’s vote to advance the ambitious Green New Deal failed as expected Tuesday, with most Democrats voting “present” in protest of what they’ve called a “sham” vote.

Michigan Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters, both Democrats, were among 43 senators voting present on the resolution, while 57 [Republicans] voted no.

Neither Stabenow nor Peters have publicly endorsed the Green New Deal but both roundly criticized their Republican counterparts for supposedly failing to take climate change seriously or even acknowledge it’s man-made.

Rest of Michigan’s two midwits drool here

Now, let the comedy ensue…

Thought Carrie Nation was an Abject Failure? Try, Allah Nation

The first question should be, much like any homicide, does current statute prevent anything? If no, then what’s the point of criminalizing another whole new group of people other than to backdoor prohibition?

State Rep. Abdullah Hammoud concedes that his goal is not just to eliminate drunken driving. He wants to keep anybody who has consumed any amount of alcohol from getting behind the wheel.

“Drink, or drive,” said Hammoud, D-Dearborn. “Choose one. It should never be both.”

Hammoud, 29, a non-drinker with a background in public health, introduced a package of bills last week that would lower the threshold for drunken driving to a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.05, from the current 0.08.

Hammoud a non-drinker? Allah-Shazam! Guess what? He’s a non-pork eater too. Shall we criminalize eating bacon? Why not, Abdullah’s Democrat Party buddy, Alexithymia Ocashew-Cortex wants to ban cow farts, and am pretty sure pigs fart too so, let’s not offend any moslems, right? 🤦‍♂️

Nessel: Promises Made

Promises kept.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has reached a settlement in a case challenging state taxpayer funding for faith-based adoption agencies that refuse to place foster children with same-sex couples.

The settlement will require the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to maintain non-discriminatory provisions in foster care and adoption agency contracts and end state contracts with agencies if they discriminate against same-sex couples in state-contracted cases.

Mackinac Island Cuckservative and Democratic Socialist Festival

Prediction: lowest turnout ever.

Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican critic of President Donald Trump, is set to be the keynote speaker at this year’s Mackinac Policy Conference and talk about the “current national political climate,” the Detroit Regional Chamber said Thursday.

Oh, the guy that loser Brian Calley endorsed in 2016?

Liars gonna lie, yes? Reckon that’s why Kasich works for Very Fake News.

Other scheduled conference speakers include Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen[nomics] Whitmer; former Florida governor and 2016 Republican presidential hopeful Jeb [Please clap] Bush; Democratic strategist and Fox News contributor Donna Brazile [Crooked Hillary’s BFF]; Stacey Abrams [Tank], the 2018 Democratic candidate for Georgia governor; Detroit Mayor Mike [Demo Disaster] Duggan; and Michigan congressional members.

Am sorely disappointed that they were not able to get Maxine ‘Peach foty fi’ Waters to attend. It would complete their agenda.

Howes: it’s just I know so much that isn’t so

Shot

Chaser

As usual, Sundance is spot-on in his assessment. Mary Barra, perhaps the most questionable selection of a CEO in General Motors’ history, is not operating in the best interests of the working men and women of America, just the same as the politically motivated UAW leadership that fails it’s members. When it comes to these Wall Street players, sorry worker bee’s, they both are just not that interested in Main Street pain.

Also, of late Mr. Howes appears to trumpet the nonsense of autonomous vehicles, which GM, Ford, Google (I know, astonishing, right?), among a few others have gone “all in” as the way of their future business model. Meh, perhaps. However, all one needs to do is look at Tesla, Airbus, and now, Boeing, to see that autonomous vehicles are in no way, shape nor form, close to being primetime on our congested roadways. Not in our lifetime, anyway.

Clown Bigotry – The Greatest Show On Earth.

Nolan Finley puts his head in a lioness' maw.

The reality over the years is that when we disagree with the clown from the Detroit News, its based on a reasonable difference of opinion over the facts.

We don’t hate clowns.  We are just don’t take em so seriously very often.. We call out clownish pranks and goofiness as such.  And truth be told, I once had a (sort-of) clown as a good friend. So there is ..that.

But the bottom line is that once in a while, a clown makes a point.  And today The News’ big top car stuffer is spot on.

Combating hate crimes is a worthy endeavor. But the new campaign announced by Attorney General Dana Nessel has the real potential to morph into thought policing.

Nessel, in partnership with Agustin Arbulu, director of the Michigan Department of Civil rights, say they will create a process to document incidents of hate and bias that don’t rise to the level of criminal or civil infractions.

That could translate to speech or expressions of opinion that some may find offensive, but are protected by the First Amendment. Bias is protected by the Constitution until it infringes on the rights and freedoms of others, and hate is often in the eye of the beholder.

If what Nessel and Arbulu are targeting are words, thoughts and opinions, this could easily become a weapon to shut down groups they find abhorrent, but are operating within the law.

Its true.

Perfect Example of why Conservative Americans Always Lose to the Progressive Left

Ingrid Jacques

Nicole Neily, the founder of Speech First, says she brought a similar case against the University of Texas in December and another suit is forthcoming.

“Sadly, there are many problems,” she says.

So credit the president for shining a light on a very real problem. But that’s where his involvement should end.

“There are terrible environments at many schools, but there are huge dangers that go with any federal effort to police expression,” says Neal McCluskey, director of the Cato Institute’s Center for Educational Freedom.

Whoa-Whoa-whoa-whoa, not so fast there, Ingrid.
