Fellow Michganians, try to keep in mind that we still have 1,335 days remaining with smear merchant, Dangerous Dana.
Nessel’s revelation of the complaint against retired Michigan Court of Claims Judge Michael Talbot is problematic, experts said, since such accusations are usually kept confidential by the Attorney Grievance Commission until and unless public admonishment is deemed necessary.
The gravity of the disclosure is compounded by the fact that the complaint against Talbot had been dismissed months before — something the Attorney General’s office initially did not reveal. One expert said the result of such disclosures is “besmirching reputations,” while another called Nessel’s conduct an “unseemly inconsistency” between two separate parts of government.
The first-term Democrat testified before the Senate Oversight Committee, where she used her opening statement to dispel what she called “misconceptions” about the unit she officially launched last month.
“We are not policing thoughts or words,” Nessel told lawmakers. “While some people in this state may choose to exercise their right to free speech by thinking hateful thoughts, saying hateful words or associating with hate-filled people, as attorney general it is my job to protect that right, not to prosecute it, even if I vehemently disagree with those thoughts, words or associations.“
Washington — Michigan officials have provided congressional investigators with tens of thousands of documents related to the Flint water crisis since the start of the year.
The office of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is continuing to work “cooperatively” with the House Oversight and Reform Committee to produce the documents that the panel requested, Nessel spokesman Dan Olsen said this week.
“Our office has already supplied the committee with tens of thousands of pages of documents, and we are diligently working to send the rest,” Olsen said.
Olsen added that, while some of the records provided to the committee have been submitted previously, “most of these pages of documents are new.”
The Attorney General’s Office is sending the documents in response to Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings of Maryland, who in late December wrote to then-Gov. Rick Snyder asking he “fully comply” with the committee’s 2016 bipartisan request for documents related to the water crisis.
Well, there is a lesson to be learned in all this.
Alas! The DetNews highlights just how reprehensible the Bolshevist union of an offspring of the insurance lobby (Whitmer), and radical lesbian Nessel ✡️, has unfolded for Michiganians.
But new Gov. Gretchen Whitmer promised on the campaign trail to shut down Line 5, and she’s allowing that ill-considered vow to get in the way of sound policy.
Whitmer teamed with Attorney General Dana Nessel to block the work by declaring the tunnel unconstitutional.
Nessel’s opinion, issued last week, is that the law approving the deal violates the state constitution because its title doesn’t reflect what’s actually in the bill. That semantical objection seems an iffy legal stance, considering that so many laws in Michigan bear lofty titles that have little connection to their contents.
*Think* the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: it did the exact opposite.
But it was enough for Whitmer, who seized the ruling to order preparations for the tunnel work to cease.
This will surely end up in court. The Republican-controlled Legislature won’t stand by while the new Democratic administration usurps its lawmaking authority, nor should it.
SML Shirkey, Speaker Chatfield, I do believe you have your marching orders.
Ps. when it comes to Line 5 transporting daily 540,000 barrels of light crude oil and synthetic petroleum, 65% of the propane used in the Upper Peninsula, and 55% used statewide, methinks, someone takes the matter at hand a wee too nonchalantly.
This incident supposedly occurred on November 11, 2016, immediately after Donald Trump’s 2016 General Election victory. It was a hate crime hoax which specifically targeted Donald Trump supporters. This Muslim woman was never charged by the Washtenaw County Prosecutor Brian L. Mackie, nor identified by the Ann Arbor Police.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has reached a settlement in a case challenging state taxpayer funding for faith-based adoption agencies that refuse to place foster children with same-sex couples.
The settlement will require the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to maintain non-discriminatory provisions in foster care and adoption agency contracts and end state contracts with agencies if they discriminate against same-sex couples in state-contracted cases.
The reality over the years is that when we disagree with the clown from the Detroit News, its based on a reasonable difference of opinion over the facts.
We don’t hate clowns. We are just don’t take em so seriously very often.. We call out clownish pranks and goofiness as such. And truth be told, I once had a (sort-of) clown as a good friend. So there is ..that.
Combating hate crimes is a worthy endeavor. But the new campaign announced by Attorney General Dana Nessel has the real potential to morph into thought policing.
Nessel, in partnership with Agustin Arbulu, director of the Michigan Department of Civil rights, say they will create a process to document incidents of hate and bias that don’t rise to the level of criminal or civil infractions.
That could translate to speech or expressions of opinion that some may find offensive, but are protected by the First Amendment. Bias is protected by the Constitution until it infringes on the rights and freedoms of others, and hate is often in the eye of the beholder.
If what Nessel and Arbulu are targeting are words, thoughts and opinions, this could easily become a weapon to shut down groups they find abhorrent, but are operating within the law.
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.”
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.
