Michigan republicans have a bad habit of making national news for all the wrong reasons.
According to Article IV, Section G, Paragraph 1 of the Bylaws of the Michigan Republican State Committee, “The Chairman shall have the power to declare vacant the seat of any officer who refuses to support the Republican nominee for any office within the State of Michigan.” That’s the language, and it’s straightforward. If you’re one of the officers specified in Article IV, Section A of those same bylaws, then you support the republican nominees, up and down the ticket, or else risk immediate termination . . . end of discussion.
That paragraph is something that a certain lady, whom I still consider a friend, should have considered before shooting her mouth off, knowing the cameras were rolling, last Friday.
Look, I get it. If we’re to be so foolish as to buy into the corporate media smear campaign, coordinated behind the scenes with the professional political establishment, designed to distract us from revelations of the actual criminal conduct of the Democrat Party, their nominee for President of the United States, and persons and organizations acting on their behalf . . . if we’re going to be so ignorant, or perhaps even stupid, as to accept that narrative, then I can understand how people might have some misgivings about the Trump candidacy. Hell, we might even go further and swallow whole Nate Silver’s assertion that said democrat nominee currently has between an 84.6% to an 89.3% of winning the Electoral College via popular vote just under three weeks from now, which, given all that a Clinton presidency implies, cannot rest easy with those rightly concerned with preserving our inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
But, those of us who are patient, and understand the modus operandi of the globalists, have trained ourselves to see the smokescreen for what it is. We are thus well aware that the media polling is often designed to advance the corporate media narrative, and that narrative is designed to advance the exact same globalist agenda that the professional political establishment advances legislatively (or through executive or judicial usurpation). So, we know to look at what we’re supposed to be ignoring, such as yet another Wikileaks data dump, or yet another Project Veritas expose, or the now-transparent corruption within the DOJ and FBI. We have also learned to deconstruct the cooked polls, and reach the conclusion that those behind the curtain would rather we not deduce. We are aware that common sense dictates that there’d be no need for coordinated riots, vandalism, or even a smear campaign if the media polls reflected actual reality. And yes, we even have the sense to remember history, specifically how a coordinated smear campaign five years ago persuaded Herman Cain to drop out of the republican primary (right at the point where he would have been untouchable had he decided to stay in), and specifically how the “paper of record” cooked the polls in nine “crucial states” in October of 1980.
So, for Wendy Day – one of the founding mothers of the Michigan tea party movement, a political consultant in her own right, and the Grassroots Vice-Chair of the MIGOP (in other words, someone who should have known better) – for her to take the bait of getting roped into a panel discussion of the anti-Trump smear campaign, there is absolutely no excuse . . . period. Apparently, over the weekend, Ronna McDaniel, state party chair, had confronted Day (at least via correspondence), and asked her to either recant and publicly support Donald Trump, or failing that to promptly resign. In doing so, McDaniel behaved as a competent executive, by providing an out-of-line subordinate with an opportunity to save face. By rejecting both of those options, Day forced McDaniel’s hand, and the end result was then unavoidable (of which Day also should have known better).
So now, as a direct result of Day’s indiscretion, compounded by her stubborn streak, a key vice chair position (one directly responsible for statewide voter turnout) is left vacant, three weeks before the single most important presidential election of our lifetime, with Michigan likely “in play” in the Electoral College. Bloody brilliant.
