And they are correct. Justice Roberts and the presumed swing vote Justice Kennedy are completely happy supporting their leftist counterparts in rewriting the law and acting in a defacto legislative manner. In the meantime our cowardly Republican congress plans its next budget including the money used to screw over the population in a direct violation to the constitution.
The biggest cowards of course being our own Tim Walberg, Dan Benishek, Candace Miller, Bill Huizinga, David Trott, Mike Bishop, John Moolenaar, and perpetual sandbagging liberal Fred Upton. Without their support for continuing funding of the Obama plans, all of this would be moot. Without their capitulation to the sell out speaker of the house Obamacare would have been repealed by the purse. Without their complete and total disrespect for the Constitution of the United States, Obama and the complete and total change of our Republic under his guidance would be but a memory.
As for the ‘Democrats?’ We have know for quite some time that the Marxist infiltration of THAT party is complete.
Three side with the rule of law. Eleven put a blue ribbon on his prize.
Well .. craps.
For those of you getting a little excited about being able to finally be proud of our Michigan delegation? It’ll have to wait another day, or week, or decade in all likelihood. The vote? Three Michigan Republicans voted to enforce the rule of law through the ONE tool that congress has.
H R 240 YEA-AND-NAY 3-Mar-2015 3:14 PM QUESTION: On Motion to Recede and Concur in the Senate Amendment BILL TITLE: Making appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2015, and for other purposes
One of the highpoints from multiple outlets in the local media last night was the announcement from a certain incumbent US Representative candidate against a certain foreclosure king, some democrat (and maybe a Libertarian).
Conservatives may have a choice in the 11th Congressional district after all.
Nothing says I love you like “I’m not going anywhere, thank you very much.”
David Trott has a few extra bucks lying around I am sure. The foreclosure king’s self funded primary netted him a win over under-financed Kerry Bentivolio in the August primary. But what the heck, Kerry still has signs, and is an incumbent congressman. Its not a stretch to say that he COULD pull off a write in win, if people can learn how to spell B-E-N-T-I-V-O-L-I-O in time for the general election.
Suggestions for Michigan's congressional seats, Governor & Lt Governor, AG, SOS, and Prop 14-1
For the August 5th 2014 Republican Primary
First Congressional District – Dan Benishek vs. Alan Arcand
Rightmi.com recommendation is for Alan Arcand.
We have described in other articles here of the current incumbent’s inability to understand the power of congress. Elected as a ‘Tea Party’ candidate Dan Benishek failed on all levels of political activity, and fell in line with the worst of establishment Republicans earning the next to lowest conservative rating from the Heritage foundation of all Michigan’s Republicans, only second to noted RINO Fred Upton.
Benishek’s service to the VA should have given him an especially good look at the inner workings of the VA, and as oversight for the last few years, it seems he is at least as culpable as the administration that Republicans are targeting on this issue. This neglect of our veterans would bite him in November when facing retired two star general Jerry Cannon who will capitalize on it. Democrats are COUNTING on Benishek being the GOP candidate.
Arcand on the other hand offers a fresh chance for Republicans to get it right. As a disabled vet, he takes the opposition tactic off the table. He understands Congress’ role as defined by the constitution, would not be afraid to withhold money from an out of control administration that has already threatened Upper Peninsula residents on the electrical grid alone.
Second Congressional District – Bill Huizenga vs. No Candidate
We ask: "Wouldn't it be better for the party if David Trott were to actually challenge a Democrat?"
Fabulously wealthy foreclosure attorney and generous friend of the GOP, David Trott, decides it’s time to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a United States Congressman.
He claims to be conservative, and Lord knows we need all we can get in Congress, so that should be a huge and appealing plus. But, instead of throwing his considerable assets and resources at a vulnerable and flaming liberal Congressman Sander Levin, who is older than dirt and an avowed leftist- Mr. Trott would instead prefer to challenge one our own, GOP freshman Congressman Kerry Bentivolio.
Granted, Trott does live in Bentivolio’s 11th Congressional District- but just barely.
