Opinion

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.

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?

Michigan Rally – Trump’s Message

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

Trump was watching yesterday.

His in-box message this morning suggests the primaries might be interesting.  Yeah, ..we have some worthless ‘leadership’ that needs to go.

Big rally in Michigan yesterday, unbelievable spirit and knowledge of what went on with respect to voting and vote counting in the 2020 Presidential Election. Detroit, considered for many years to be one of the most corrupt places in the United States for elections (and many other things!), had large-scale irregularities so much so that two officials, at great risk to themselves and their families, refused to certify the results, and were sadly threatened. Wasn’t it a fact that aside from other things, there were far more votes than voters? Even the RINOs on the Senate Committee found 289,866 absentee ballots that were sent to people who never requested them, “something that would be illegal.” Why did they viciously kick out the Republican poll watchers? Seventy percent of Detroit’s mail-in ballot counting boards didn’t match, it was a total mess. Why won’t they give respected professionals and representatives at yesterday’s rally the right to do a Forensic Audit of Wayne County (Detroit) and Macomb County? That includes the RINOs in the State Senate and House who for, whatever reason, do nothing but obstruct instead of seeking the truth. Hopefully, each one of these cowardly RINOs, whose names will be identified and forthcoming, will be primaried, with my Complete and Total Endorsement, in the upcoming election. Congratulations on the great rally yesterday!

As for number of votes being more than voters exist?  Probably not.

However, the newly minted Michigan constitution (circa crazy-ass 2018 referendums) does say any one of us can demand an audit.  It’s not like the government can ignore the constitutions ..right?

All that aside, Benson should have been impeached by our legislature for breaking the law BEFORE the election.  And now she is shepherding the most damaging (to local communities) electoral gerrymander the state has ever seen.

Cowardice begets tyranny.

Sunday Sermon – A Defense Of Marriage

Genesis 2:18-25

Traditional marriage is under attack like never before.

People not only in America but all over the world are debating and arguing over what a marriage is and what a marriage isn’t. As Christians it doesn’t really matter what our opinions of marriage are or whether or not we think that it should be re-defined. What should matter to believers like us is what the Bible and God says about marriage.

The Bible clearly defines marriage and anyone who cares to read it for themselves will find there really are no gray areas even though some people will attempt to say that there are. Marriage is biblically defined as a holy union ordained by God to be between one man and one woman. No human being, no act of congress, nor any society created marriage. Marriage goes all the way back to Genesis. In Genesis 1:27-28 we read this: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” And in our first reading this morning we read this: So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

Meanwhile On Mackinac

The 'leadership' conference goes on ..

Hopefully our Republican warriors are having a good time.

It’s been nearly a year since “most popular president of all time” won a reality defying contest here in the state of Michigan and they are about to pass a super sized budget at a whopping $62 Billion.  And worse than the size alone is the fact that it continues to fund those agencies which have abused Michiganians over the past year and a half.

From the state police, which was used as Whitmer’s personal enforcers to the ‘occupational’ cretins who relish any chance to assert authority, to the local health departments with over sized nurse Ratchets in charge, so many businesses have been harmed, ..some irreparably and without recourse, even after the courts ruled Whitmer’s earlier acts as illegal.

And worse than all of that, was the destruction of elections with integrity.

First Amendment Or Firing?

Is a recent editorial by a county employee appropriate, ..or defamation?

I tend to be of the opinion that no employment robs one of his or her ability to speak and offer opinion.

Free speech is a win-win, right?  So what happens when a person who represents policy for an employer openly disagrees with that employer’s position on any specific subject? What if the employer is not only disagreed with, but is defamed in the process?

We may find out. From our favorite fish wrap in the North:

“The medical director for the Grand Traverse County Health Department contends county commissioners “crossed the line from illogical to irresponsible” when they passed a resolution that curbs messaging public health officials distribute in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. “

There is disagreement, which would be better served with an “I understand their concern, but this is wrong..” and then there is ..name calling, ..yes?

In this case, it is about the resolution passed in order to reign in some of the messaging, and the inability of the health department to step outside its authority in the name of ‘science.’  Commissioners last week put the check on their subordinates, and it didn’t sit well with the ‘heroes’ of the plandemic.  This particular doctor’s feathers were ruffled, and in true Doctor speak (“I am better than anyone cause of my letters”) he made sure we all know it.

Perhaps 78 year old Collins may not care whether he is employed by the county, so open insubordination bordering on defamation is easy. Or perhaps Mr Collins ..MD, hasn’t in his nearly octogenarian status has yet to learn the role of the politicians we elect? ..That is ..to protect our rights.

Pay Attention – Science Happening Here

Dr. Christina Parks argues against mandates.

The logic of her arguments are unassailable.

A Proper Application Of Government Policy

Grand Traverse County to make a statement affirming Constitutional Rights in light of Covid fear pandering.

On Wednesday, the Grand Traverse County  Board of Commissioners will address in a small way, the potential for yet another round of mandates, and the pressures currently being made for the population to accept and receive as-yet unapproved and untested vaccines.

Those who oppose the effort, a resolution in support for your constitutionally protected rights, will attempt to abuse the constitution in their own way arguing for ‘general welfare’ as reasons to support mandates, lock-downs and other restrictions placed on your liberties.  Those who oppose the statement of liberty would gladly see government toss it’s constitutional limits any time fear can be applied successfully  – As it has in the past 18 months.

The resolution reads:
