Michigan

Are they for real?!?

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.

Willard, Willard, Willard…

So, it’s a new year.

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.

And then the Indrid Cold-grinning idiot from the Michigan’s 13th Congressional District lets the worst kept secret out of the bag pertaining to the democrats end game for the 116th Session of Congress.

Not to worry girlfriend, the economic wunderkind from the Bronx has got your back.

Oh, snap!

Is that the media asking more questions that she’s unable to answer?

Sorry, but you’re on your own girlfriend!

Making matters even worse (only if you are unaware of his family’s penchant for screwing things up), a “republican” completely and unnecessarily enters the fray.

Crickets

Newly elected Michigan Congressman demonstrates high level of class.

Silence will be all we hear from those afflicted with TDS (Trum Derangement Syndrome) on this.

Michigan seriously went to the dogs in November. Those who speak harshly of Trump’s demeanor should probably now just shut up. Unless of course, they are finally willing to engage the ever increasing insanity of the left. From the Daily wire is a reminder of why certain people have no business representing anyone:

On Thursday night, her first night as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, new Michigan Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib spoke to a crowd of supporters and decided to personify the famous statement of Michelle Obama that Democrats go high when the GOP goes low, saying of President Trump, “We’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother***er.”

This speaks well of those who elected her, yes?

“Boring” is not the adjective we should be using to describe the next several years I suspect.  “Respectful” may be too much to hope for as well.

Elections have consequences to be sure.

2920 More Days

Eight years of the lady parts.

Truthfully, I wonder if Rick Snyder couldn’t have replaced Senator Whitmer on the Capitol steps that day 6 plus years ago.

Yeah that was a boot to the backside of the guy who really needed to go, but it’s not getting any better.  For those of you with a strong constitution, rewind and play all of the video linked above. It’s obviously family friendly because it has kids in it holding signs, right?

Gretchen Whitmer is hardly friendly to the patriarchal designs of safety for the family however. While promoting theV-J-J day nonsense in that video, she at the same time has been speaking to weakening the protections afforded to us by the authorities protecting our borders and removing gang elements.

Ice Ice baby.

Probably not well thought out, her parting comment in this video speaks volumes if she intends to act upon it given that the job is now hers.  Accountability to one’s words are the hallmark of the up and coming XX Democrat activist, yes?

Somehow, there is a disconnect with the XX movement and the very ‘patriarchal’ nature of SE Michigan immigration however.  The V-J-J day exercise seems to run in conflict with the practices of such favored ‘immigrant’ communities that practice FGM.

Arguably, the forced mutilation of XX children is tantamount to kidnapping and torture, and should be considered under federal statute period.  However liberal judges are now a dime a dozen, and while supported by wing nut lefty XX’ers cannot support the V-J-J position that “my V-J-J is my own.”

Arguably, the left is insane.

Sausage Making

Regional 'payoffs' still ignore proper role of government.

Cronyism is now everywhere.

I have written at the beginning of Snyder’s terms that he was the guy who essentially brought the neu-cronyism to Michigan.  He invented the current form, and served as its first overlord.  Money spent in ways that used to invite constitutional challenges, now routinely passes through the sieve of Lansing into favored projects and could be expected to always get the blessing of the governor.

I doubt the new governor will do anything but enhance it’s reach as she attempts to cajole lawmakers from the ‘other side’ to embrace her sure-to-be bizarre mechanizations that raise the cost of government further.  Sadly, it is a Republican legislature that continues to make this kind of thing happen:

$10M In Sports Funding Coming: Is Indoor Traverse City Sports Complex Next?

By Beth Milligan | Dec. 29, 2018

$10 million in state funding is headed to northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula to create a regional sports commission – an initiative that dovetails with an effort by Traverse City Tourism to explore opening a year-round indoor sports complex in Traverse City.

Governor Rick Snyder signed off Friday on two supplemental spending bills totaling $1.3 billion for numerous projects throughout the state, including road upgrades, contamination clean-up, and education initiatives. The bills – approved earlier this month by state lawmakers – also include funding for community projects throughout Michigan, including $10 million to establish the Northern Michigan Regional Tourism and Sports Fund and to create a Great Lakes Sports Commission.

… Traverse City Tourism hired a consulting firm earlier this year to conduct a feasibility study on whether there is a need for such a facility in the area, how much it would cost to construct, and if it would be financially sustainable. The firm’s results are expected in January. But Traverse City Tourism President/CEO Trevor Tkach says preliminary findings “prove there is enough demand to run a cash-positive business if the facility gets built.”

Maybe “cash positive” means profit?  Maybe, maybe not.

Because.

"I'll just hang out here in the white house and sulk about the wall.." LOL

It drives those with TDS crazy when they think the guy has finally made some major blunder, then finding out they’ve been fooled again.

If you aren’t sure what I am referring to?  Its OK.  Not a big deal.  in the mean time Just appreciate that we have Michigan Service members in that crowd below.  May God continue to bless the Trumps, and our nation.

Sunday Sermon – Why Christmas?

Worrying about the actual date of Christmas may miss the point of it.

“Why Christmas?” Why does the entire world seem to at least acknowledge that the 25th of December is Christmas?

For just a moment I’d like us to ignore the obvious – that it is the celebration of Christ’s birth, because if we were totally honest with ourselves, that isn’t what it means to the vast majority of people who celebrate it. I mean, look around us. This is a very festive looking room, but what don’t you see? I’d like to take a few moments to examine the history that surrounds some of the traditions of Christmas.

Many people realize the date of Christmas was originally used by pagans to celebrate the passing of the winter solstice. They knew that by this time in December that the shortest day and longest night had passed, and with that came the promise of longer days, shorter nights and eventually spring.  The date of December 25th, as the celebration of Christ’s birth, however, was first seen in a Roman calendar dating from approximately 336 AD.

But it is very unlikely that Christ was born during the winter months. Why not? Good question. In Luke 2:8 we read: “And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flocks by night.” Now, the usual time for the sheep to be kept in the fields surrounding Bethlehem is after the last of the winter rains in April and before they start up again in November. So, if there were shepherds in the fields then the birth likely occurred between April and November.

But December wasn’t always the choice for celebrating Christ’s birthday. In the two hundred years after the death of Christ, Christians celebrated his birth on January 6, April 19, May 20 and several other dates. A few years ago a British physicist and astronomer, David Hughes, calculated that the date of Christ’s birth was September 17th, 7 BC.
