  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    Aches and Reoccurring Payne's

    Want to see how Ronulans deep-six Rep. Bentivolio's reelection?  Chem-trails.

    "We'll bring in some Air Force folks right here in our district. We can have an oversight reform committee hearing right here and we'll investigate," said Bentivolio in response to an audience question. "I'd like to find out about it too."

    Oh, Lord.  Please Kerry, don't play with your vegetables.  We here at RM didn't bust our asses in 2012, just to have a few PaulTards in the crowd grenade us in 2014.

    But despite such embarrassing diversions the first-term Congressman, say political insiders, will be difficult to unseat in 2014 - even with last week's announcement that businessman [Foreclosure Lawyer] and Michigan Republican Party establishment favorite Dave Trott has thrown his hat into the ring. Such is the power of incumbency, and the deep pocketbooks of the GOP's insurgent Ron Paul/Libertarian wing that backs Bentiviolo.

    In the redrawn CD-11, I wouldn't be so cocksure as to hang my hat on "the power of incumbency".  Not in Oakland, and Wayne County's den of vipers, anyway.

    The 2013 Update of the Freedom Index is out.

    The Freedom Index: A Congressional Scorecard Based on the U.S. Constitution rates congressmen based on their adherence to constitutional principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, national sovereignty, and a traditional foreign policy of avoiding foreign entanglements. The percentages below are cumulative scores are based on key votes from 1999 through 2013. Click on a senator's or representative's name to get a detailed breakdown of his or her voting record.


    Sen. Carl Levin - 13%
    Sen. Debbie Stabenow - 18%
    Dist.1: Dan Benishek - 70%
    Dist.2: Bill Huizenga - 76%
    Dist.3: Justin Amash - 93%
    Dist.4: Dave Camp - 53%
    Dist.5: Daniel Kildee - 30%

    Dist.7: Tim Walberg - 71%
    Dist.8: Mike Rogers - 51%
    Dist.9: Sander Levin - 16%
    Dist.10: Candice Miller - 51%
    Dist.11: Kerry Bentivolio - 80%
    Dist.12: John Dingell - 21%
    Dist.13: John Conyers - 28%
    Dist.14: Gary Peters - 15%

    48? 51? 53 percent constitutionally competent?  We KNOW the Democrats have abandoned any allegiance to the constitution, but its truly disturbing how 'our side' has characters that would so willingly disregard the TRUE rule of law.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Rep. Bentivolio, You Want Them To Read What They Pass?

    Heaven's to Betsy, what has this world come to when the Ruling Class would be required to read Laws that govern us, and they exempt themselves from?

    WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Congressman Kerry Bentivolio introduced the Read the Bills Act of 2013. This legislation makes important changes to the way Congress does business by giving ample time to review legislation before it is voted on, requiring that all votes on passage be taken by roll call, and by providing that legislation shows in context how it modifies existing law.

    It is a basic moral question that a member of Congress should only vote to pass legislation having read and understood it. The Read the Bills Act accomplishes this by requiring that every vote on a bill's passage take place no less than 7 days after the text of the bill is available on-line to the public where it can easily be found. There is an exception to the "7 day rule" for declarations of war.

    "It is our duty to be transparent to the constituents we serve. This legislation will increase transparency and ensure that Congress doesn't pass legislation to find out what is in it," said Rep. Bentivolio. "Every law affects how the American people live and it is a dereliction of the Oath of Office to pass laws without knowing what they are."

    Rep. Bentivolio's, bill may be viewed here.

    Uh-oh.  No more "unanimous consent" sneak through?   The oligarch running the District of Corruption isn't going to be too happy about that, Rep. Bentivolio.  However, you have my support on this bill.  As an aside... any friendly wagers that this legislation dies in committee like S.3360 did in the Senate last year?

    Mr. Finley, Exec Patterson: Enough is ENOUGH!

    By Corinthian Scales, Section News
    Posted on Thu Aug 09, 2012 at 12:59:25 PM EST

    The level of establishment skullduggery being demonstrated in Oakland Co shows no limits.  Now, we have Nolan Finley, deciding to carry the Patterson/Cassis water with propagating a new "whisper campaign" with seeds of intent to malign Republican CD-11 candidate, Kerry Bentivolio.

    Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson was disappointed in the outcome of the primary vote and wasn't sure if the party establishment will rally around Bentivolio.

    "I don't know what the party will do," Patterson said. "He is our nominee. I don't agree with his libertarian views, but there are issues we can find common ground on, like repealing Obamacare and the $15 trillion national debt."

    What's to do, Brooks?  You and your cronies support the only Republican, Kerry Bentivolio.  C'mon Brooks, get that big old swollen Teddy Kennedy-sized head of yours out of the peoples way: you're obstructing the Party candidate.  It's bad enough to have Third World voting Schostak in Lansing dumping on Mr. Bentivolio, but I never expected to read a hastily slapped together before the AG announcement, Finley piece pushing the 'Nutty Nancy' propaganda mill too.

    Contributing to the hesitancy of GOP poobahs to embrace Bentivolio Wednesday were rumors that his campaign will be touched when Attorney Gen. Bill Schuette issues election fraud indictments Thursday in the McCotter ballot petition fraud investigation.

    That dive into how a veteran congressman allowed a failure to collect enough valid signatures to bounce him from an office he'd held for 10 years is expected to produce fascinating findings that could go beyond McCotter's office and staff.

    Opinions piece based upon agenda rumors, Nolan?  Unnecessary.  Sorry, Mr. Finley, but YOU really owe Mr. Bentivolio, a HUGE apology.  And you actually wonder why Kerry declined speaking with you?  You're some piece of work, Nolan.  Your employer must be so proud.

    Like before, The Buck Stops with McCotter.  AG Schuette Press Release, here.

    Schostak Flirting With a Potential Keith Ellison-D in CD-11

    By Corinthian Scales, Section News
    Posted on Thu Aug 09, 2012 at 09:35:13 AM EST
    Tags: Kerry Bentivolio, CD-11, Silencing Conservatives within the MI-GOP, Party Overhaul, Grassroots, SB-992, Bobby Schostak has to GO! (all tags)

    I just happened to catch this little gem from the Worst Party Chair EVER via The Detroit News.

    Bentivolio will face Dr. Syed Taj, a Canton Township trustee, in November. Cassis congratulated Bentivolio, but did not offer an endorsement.

    Bobby Schostak, chairman of the Michigan Republican Party, offered a mild endorsement of Bentivolio at a GOP unity event in Lansing, but would not commit the party to spending money in the 11th District to help him win.

    "It's obviously difficult to have a write-in campaign. He succeeded. He's a Republican on the ballot, and we intend to send a Republican to Washington. Plain as day," Schostak said.

    "We'll evaluate the races equally and where possible we'll invest in races."

    Later in the day, the Michigan Republican Party issued a memo emphasizing that the 22,276 Republican write-in votes "beat" the 21,952 votes Taj got in his Democratic primary victory against Bill Roberts, a Lyndon LaRouche activist from Redford Township.

    The memo also noted Bentivolio received more votes than Taj and Roberts combined.

    With Taj as the nominee, Democrats see the 11th District as a possible opportunity to capture a Republican seat that would have been unimaginable six months ago.

    So, the only Republican on the ballot in CD-11 receives "He succeeded" in an all-out  orchestrated smear campaign waged against him.  That besmirching of Kerry Bentivolio, actually happened at the MI-GOP "Unity" event for Hoekstra?  What strange bedfellows.  Pete, and John, where's all that 'Relentless Positive' talk from folk in Party Leadership for, Mr. Bentivolio?   DRIC Nerd make no likey for Kerry-san too?  DRIC Nerd has not been afraid to poke his nose into Oakland Co politics before, so that is a reasonable question to raise.

    Wow!  What a take away from it all.  Unbelievable.  Well, maybe it's not so unbelievable considering that Chair Schostak was gushing over adding the 2010 MEA, UFCW, AFL-CIO, MI AFSCME, AFT endorsed Democrat, Roy Schmidt poisoning the Party well.

    The CD-11 agenda is obvious.  If Chair Schostak isn't signaling the local Party's that he is willing to aid them with noncommittal messages to get their Chosen One elected on Sept 5, then nothing is.  Folks in CD-11, you're now being played at the state level.  Without doubt.  The state level players have said that you are incompetent dummies that need your candidate selected for you by networked hierarchy folk with money.

    Frankly, I'm not sure where the grassroots stand anymore after their successful ouster of NPV Saul Anuzis and his ties to the Anyone but Hoekstra senate candidate, but if this kind of ongoing election manipulation such as "DELE-GATE" by establishment is to ever end, replacing Saul and Holly, with the Honorable Rep. Dave Agema, and Terri Lynn Land, was just the beginning.

    Bobby Schostak, has to go.

    Thanks, Doc: But I Will Be Getting A Second Opinion

    A commentary piece as read by a Rep. Benishek constituent, via the good folks at MCC.  

    U.S. Rep. Dan Benishek speaks out against vague language in legislation

    By Rep. Dan Benishek

    Imagine government without responsibility toward its citizens -- let me give you a hint, it looks a lot like Syria's Bashar al-Assad regime.

    America is blessed with a Constitution that protects Americans so they are not afraid that each new leader will turn the country into a fascist nation. No matter how much anyone disagrees with a president's policies, we can take solace in the protections of the Constitution.

    The Constitution's authority is supreme and every piece of legislation must fit within the Constitution's limits.

    Roger that, Doc.  So far, we're on the same page.  Let's continue...

    Bentivolio Ad Takes A Shot At Cassis' Granholm Connection

    Actually a very powerful ad, it will resonate well with Tea folk and true conservatives who had little love for the failed former governor and her state wrecking policies.
