Gov. Whitmer Took the Bait

Detroit this weekend.

During a press conference at Public Safety Headquarters last week, when 29 people were shot in Detroit over the weekend, leaving four dead,

Dozens of protesters surrounded the vehicle and a rear back window was “busted out,” police said.

I just love how President Trump so easily trolls all the Democrat race-hustlers and crooks using their own record of failure.

Thanks, Gov. Whitmer, and Mayor Duggan! President Trump now gets to cut a few more campaign commercials using your body counts.

Who Dat?

Tell Me Again Who Actually Supports Nazis?

From the Detroit Free Press‘ 138 photo collage of rioters in Detroit’s Greektown neighborhood yesterday, 30 May 2020.  Photo 113 of 138.

Some in Michigan have memories that extend beyond 45 days.  Will our deceitful Governor have anything to say about protesters who genuinely embrace Hitler?  Or her lying tool Susan J. Demas?

And just who is reaching into your pocket THIS time?

Whose hand is in YOUR wallet?

A few days ago, I tipped everyone off about a Michigan Republican(?) who felt that your money wasn’t your money.

Well, after reviewing the journals from this week, this shemp had some help placing this bill on the floor to be voted upon.

You’ll be disappointed at his accomplices.

Taxupalozza 2020

Coming when you least expect it!

So, what do you get when you add a ton of special interest groups who feel that they are even more entitled to your money than you are (and their hopes that you’re not paying any attention to them whatsoever)?

You get the makings for a very interesting (series?) of elections in 2020…that’s what!

Lying liars lying (yet again).

Multiple media outlets in Detroit are reporting that the Detroit Institute of Arts will renege on their pledge made after the passage of their Regional Art Tax (aka “Art Institute Authority”) in 2012 and seek a renewal on the March 2020 ballot, two years ahead of its statutory end.

Yeah, I cannot wait to see how they’ll justify spending even more money on “art”?

I’m currently running on very little sleep, but more details to follow…

Remind me again why Michigan Taxpayers were forced to bail them out (and by a republican governor/legislature no less)?

If this post doesn’t get your blood boiling…

That’s right kids…you’re going to school in a wonderful place called Detroit! Don’t worry…someone else will pay for it.

When Property Rights Become A Concern

Its all about control.

Want to see a perfect example of big government thinking?

It’s exposed when defending the little guy becomes suspect, because the advocates for said ‘little guy’ endorse/embrace the constitution. Joshua Akers, an assistant professor of geography and urban and regional studies at the University of Michigan-Dearborn just cannot grasp the motivations of those who would defend the downtrodden.

Akers has issue with a constitutional defense legal firm Pacific Legal ..taking on a constitutional property rights case.  Because they might use it for their own ideological (constitutional) ends. Not making this stuff up, and from the Detroit Free Press:

Akers, who has written extensively on the nonprofit, contends the suit filed in Wayne County Circuit Court is a Trojan horse, less concerned with the constitutionality of the annual tax auction and more focused on using the court system to bolster property rights and solidify language around the Fifth Amendment, which prohibits private property from being taken for public use without just compensation.

And because that isn’t enough?

“This seems pretty great — you’re defending the little guy from government overreach. But in the end, what’s lost is the ability to regulate the usage of property. The ability to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of those living around the property,” said Akers explaining that while some homeowner could benefit from this, by and large, it is the wealthy, politically connected and big industries that win.

And there you go.  Big industries win when a homeowner gets to keep her house.

Read the rest   And consider how much better off we would be if we stopped feeding the beast and defunded these destroyers of our individual freedoms.

Michigan Town Hall – We Build the Wall March 14th (Update!!!)

Okay, I just got back from a weekend with the family and I’m catching up on some correspondence when I came upon this in my inbox from the We Build The Wall organizers over the weekend:

This is Brian Kolfage. I want to make sure you all are aware that we moved our venue to Cobo Center. 

Two reasons why. We outgrew the Warren location by a long shot. We aren’t sure how many 1000’s are showing up so we need to be prepared.

Secondly, security. We need command and control of this event and the venue Cobo Center offers this security for our guests. 

With onsite secure parking, and onsite security who is trained to deal with these functions they are highly competent. Furthermore, we have 18 on duty Detroit Police Officers dedicated to working out event. 

With all these steps taken we believe security of our guests and speakers to be priority and have mitigated any mishaps from protestors who will not be permitted in the venue or building. 

This is going to be an awesome event for everyone and want to ensure it’s safe and secure for you and your friends.  

Thank you for understanding! I hope to see you there! 

Brian Kolfage 

While I’m glad at the outpouring of support for this event which apparently has more Conservatives backing it, than who attended last months GOP State Convention (how sad is that), I’ve got to chime in a several items regarding this Thursday’s event.

With all due respect to Mr. Kolfage, if anyone thinks that they’ve got the agitators under control…you don’t.

Yes, you can “secure” Cobo Hall and keep them at bay.

No, you cannot keep them from harassing attendees entering or exiting Cobo, or worse yet, vandalizing property. The Cobo Parking lots CANNOT be secured. Not only is it a public parking lot, it’s just far too big to effectively patrol.

Making matters worse, my sources have tipped me off that they are already aware of the new venue and are already planning for it. Unfortunately, that’s all I have at the moment.

This IS NOT meant to warn people away.

Just the opposite. I want to see as many people as possible at Cobo this Thursday. I especially want to see them arrive and leave as safely as possible for what should be a memorable evening (in a good way).

I would just want to make a friendly warning for attendees to locate other parking options around Downtown Detroit. There are many within walking distance of Cobo, and this is one of the rare times when I’ll advocate using it, take the People Mover to get to and from Cobo.

So to wrap things up, The We Build The Wall Michigan Town Hall will NOW be held at Cobo Hall in Downtown Detroit in Hall “B” from 7:00pm to 8:30pm

And from The We Build The Wall event page:

DOORS OPEN AT 5:30PM SHARP AT COBO CENTER

NEED GOVERNMENT ID MATCHING TICKET TO GAIN ENTRANCE

To ensure the safety and security of all guests, we respectfully request that attendees refrain from bringing back packs or any other personal bags or luggage. Upon arrival you will be subject to a security check prior to entry which will include metal detecting wands and a possible pat down in the event the wand detects metal of any kind.

Again, I’m not trying to scare anyone away. Forewarned and forearmed…that sort of thing.
