I don’t want to pretend sympathy, and give her some BS benefit of the doubt. Her statements are contrived, and she is manipulating the supposed adults in the room with her mousey voice and child like vulnerability. She is clearly an activist playing a dangerous game of political destruction by falsehood and theatrical presentation.
What angers me most about this, is what it does to all of the sons and brothers of women everywhere, as well as truthful women themselves who when all of this shakes out, will have to wonder if they might possibly be believed, and if it is worth it.
A body language interpreter explains in these two videos below, the difference between Ford, and Kavanaugh in recent public exposure.
They were apparently well received. And though there were no absolutes on future efforts, it was made clear that nothing will happen this year to give the progressive left it’s holy grail, a full blown democracy, when electing the president. Norm Hughes who in large part organized the day long effort writes afterward:
Thank you to all the Patriots that went to Lansing today to talk with legislators. Several dozen were involved and they were truly great. We got firm commitments in both houses that National Popular Vote (NPV) will not be voted on this year. We also picked up at least 12 more NO votes on Convention Of States, meaning we have the votes to defeat it if they bring it up in the lame duck session.
This NPV snafu came at a terrible time, taking volunteers from campaigns to Lansing to educate the very candidates who want their help. I can tell you some top officials think it was one cluster ***. Those who took the Hawaii junket might have fulfilled their obligation to push it but it backfired, How are they going to explain that to their benefactors?
A “terrible time” indeed.
I can tell you that there are certain legislators who signed on that will still feel the pain. When looking for the door knockers, local offices have found that certain representative candidates are not inspiring a ground swell of optimism. They may well win their respective contests, but rightfully, they will have to work harder to do so.
Mr Hughes mentioned in a separate post on Facebook that some of the legislators responded positively to the Proportional Electors idea. This is something which the electoral college was designed to accommodate. There are two states, Maine, and Nebraska, which do not follow the winner take all formula.
Michigan lawmakers are moving legislation to undermine your vote for President of the United States. If it becomes law, your local delegates will be controlled by the National Popular Vote winner, NOT you, the voters. It is known as “The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.. It takes advantage of a loop hole in the Constitution. Article 2, Section 1, Paragraph 2, Line 1. Come out to the Rally and learn how to stop this in your state.
It was unfortunate that I had a library board meeting at the same time the Ted Nugent appearance with Bill Schuette & Lisa Lyons was happening. It was also unfortunate that the meeting which should have lasted 20 minutes, went on for a half hour because I had to defend the first amendment and fight for better crafted policy.
Sometimes the fun stuff has to wait.
And though I was unsuccessful in defeating a poorly written screed not worth the ink used to print, I was at least fortunate enough to catch the headline crew as they worked their way out the back door. I don’t think I broke any speeding laws in my 20 minute drive from Kingsley back to the heart of TC, but even if I had?
Snyder’s cronies mean business. And the gators love themselves a progressive Democrat.
Government insiders pick Whitmer to protect them after Schuette stood up to the Lansing establishment on Flint and Ingham County establishment on Nassar and Dunnings
The Bill Schuette for Governor campaign said today that endorsements of Senator Gretchen Whitmer by members of the Lansing establishment are a signal that Gretchen Whitmer is the insiders’ choice to protect the status quo.
Stu Sandler, spokesman for Schuette says
“As Attorney General, Bill Schuette has been standing up for victims and families. Gretchen Whitmer has made a career of standing with special interests and Lansing insiders. It’s not a surprise that the same people who have been trying to stop Schuette from getting justice in Flint are the same people supporting Gretchen Whitmer. Schuette is willing to take on Lansing bureaucrats, Gretchen Whitmer will always side with special interests,”
Schuette takes on the establishment, even of his own party
As Attorney General, Bill Schuette has taken on the establishment at many levels, putting him on the side of Michigan families instead of government insiders.
– Flint Water: Schuette was the first to stand up and start an investigation into the poisoning of thousands of children, women, and men. In fact, Schuette stood up to an administration of his own party to do so and continues on today despite a non-stop onslaught of opposition to ongoing criminal cases taking place in a court of law by those who have endorsed Whitmer today.
– Nassar: Bill Schuette was the only prosecutor to step up and take on the Nassar investigation and prosecution, successfully putting Nassar behind bars, giving survivors the opportunity to face Nassar and address the world, and investigate and charge officials at the university.
– Ingham County Corruption: Bill Schuette is the prosecutor who challenged the Ingham County government establishment and cleaned up the corruption mess created by former Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings by charging criminal activities and securing a conviction.
Sandler rightly points out
“Gretchen Whitmer has an unaccomplished record as a public official, passing only three bills into law in 14 years and failing to successfully take on the establishment in Lansing, Ingham County, or anywhere else. Bill Schuette has a strong record of doing the right thing, even when it meant going against his own party to do so. He took on the Lansing and Ingham insiders as attorney general and will do so as governor,”
In a move that I heard rumblings about them for some time now, but felt they had slightly more of a chance of existing than, say, The Nain Rouge, Dogman, The Little Blue Man or even Luke The Spook, The Detroit News reported today that a group calling themselves “Republicans and Independents for Whitmer” have finally made their existence known.
Yes, the name is exactly what is says, although the “republicans” in the aforementioned name aren’t even on the radar when it comes to promoting anything even remotely close to Conservative Values.
Calling them RINO’s would actually be a complement to them.
I’m a little pressed for time today and have to keep this short, but will share one quick quite from Sen. Shirkey and Rep. Chatfield on these knuckleheads before I have to run.
“Anyone claiming to be a ‘Republican for Whitmer’ is someone opposed to lower taxes, limited government and fiscal responsibility.”
I will be touching on that glaringly obvious problem within the Michigan GOP and expanding on this post a little later.
Bill Schuette and Lisa Posthumus Lyons rally with Ted Nugent in Northern Michigan with Sportsmen and Sportswomen for Schuette Coalition
Bill Schuette, Lisa Posthumus Lyons, and Ted Nugent will rally in Northern Michigan today with members of the Sportsmen and Sportswomen for Schuette coalition at events in Marquette and Traverse City.
Schuette and Nugent kicked off the day in a with a radio interview in Traverse City, where Nugent expressed his support of Bill Schuette and his campaign for Governor.
“I’ve watched Bill Schuette as Attorney General, and he’s always been the law and order guy. And that’s why I support Bill Schuette and Lisa Posthumus Lyons, they are absolutists that God gave us the individual right as Americans to keep and bear arms,” Nugent said.
The campaign also announced that Bill Schuette has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), and has received an A+ rating from the NRA.
“I’m going to support your Second Amendment rights and I appreciate the endorsement of the NRA. Gretchen Whitmer will take away your Second Amendment rights, and that would be a step backwards for Michigan residents and our Constitution,” Schuette said.
Michigan’s outdoors key part of Michigan economy
Michigan’s great natural resources are not only a key part of our quality of life, but also key to Michigan’s economy. Schuette’s Paycheck Agenda focuses on protecting our natural resources to encourage Michigan as a destination for hunting, sport fishing, and tourism, with billions of dollars at stake, and as an attraction to draw new residents to the state because of our high qualify of life.
The video on the right appeared amidst the nonsense of a US senate race elsewhere. It is probably the only time in your life you will see the word “penis” in a seriously considered political video. (The ad is actually STILL posted on her official site – I have saved a copy as well)
The “P” word in this ad, is of course used to make sure that the viewers are advised that those who wear the aforementioned appliance are to be viewed with suspicion and disdain. That we cannot wait to show it off in just about every environment. In short, that “Men are evil pigs.”
Aside from the absurdly overblown reaction to the false accusations of events supposedly 4 decades past, this candidate displayed a bizarre sense of propriety and judgement. It was not enough for her to simply ‘hate men’ and let us know that the memberful sex was to be feared, but she actually believes that leaving such inculcation present and viewable during a statewide political contest is wise.
Just putting this out there till the next article on the disaster that is the NPV.
California decided it was going to allow ALL of the illegal aliens to vote? What if they encouraged it? What if they Required all election precincts to accept any ballots cast by anyone who had identification or not?
What if it added a couple million to the voter rolls? What if that was the ‘popular vote’ difference and forced states who are bound by the NPV to cast for those with the greater vote total number? Therein lies the rub.
Legislators in Michigan who would support such fraud should be tarred and feathered for such malfeasance.
