I was reminded today of the real treasure Gretchen Whitmer has become. (H/T CS)
In this video she singlehandedly takes on the novelty lighter cartel. “Novelties are like toys!” She says eagerly playing with them to demonstrate how easily a child is transfixed by such captivating shapes and sounds. The danger we all face as a consequence is just too much!
If you throw up in your mouth a little knowing this person could possibly be the next governor for our great state?
Schuette fights 'misleading' health care claim, attacks Whitmer's vote cutting AG rate oversight
It had to happen eventually.
The theft by BCBS of Michigan of BILLIONS in taxpayer dollars may now be looked at a little more closely. And all it took was much of that money being used to promote Gretchen Whitmer’s candidacy for governor.
Whitmer, who’s father once ran Blue Cross, has been working the former insurer-of-last-resort for Michigan for her campaign finances. Her actions with regard to policy have reflected the cozy connection that has existed between her and the organization that controlled over $4billion in cash reserves as Michigan’s protected underwriter.
Bill Schuette rightly called out Whitmer today for this relationship, raising so many questions about who Gretchen Whitmer has been working for. Is it the well connected fat cats who run health care policy with billions of taxpayer funded dollars? Or is it the taxpayers, who have seen their premiums skyrocket, and insurance worsen by her actions?
Corruption is real. There is big money in healthcare. It would be a huge mistake for anyone to assume that because she is a Democrat, that it ain’t about taking the money.
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.
Tomorrow she might say something very different to salvage any middle of the road Dems, but folks have been wising up to the extremist views held by Democrat candidates. Gretchen Whitmer bobble-heads her agreement to abolishing our immigration enforcement in this video.
“I think we need a governor, who will stand up to the federal government” she says. As governor, she COULD make enforcement of our borders problematic.
Bill Schuette is immediately ready to face down the failed ideas of the left.
The left is bereft of ideas.
Well, maybe not ‘bereft’, but the ideas they have are generally failed attempts at creating equal outcomes instead of promoting equal opportunity. Socialism, a well documented catastrophe of civilization’s epoch is now the new norm for the Democrat party. The tragedy of the ‘best intentions’ has no equal in ways of starving and inciting misery in otherwise viable populations.
Bill Schuette, having earned the nomination of the Republican party is wasting no time challenging the nominee of the Democrats. In a press release today he appears confident that a comparison of her record and rhetoric will expose the regressive policies of those who once upon a time preferred to be called ‘progressive.’
For 75% of the candidates speaking last weekend at the Michigan United People’s Governor Forum, I could’ve very easily just stayed home and wrote this piece out and included their responses even before they made them. They are ridiculously simple to predict and I would’ve easily gotten it pretty darn close to what they actually said with no one being the wiser.
I WOULDN’T do that because that’s not the kind of person that I am.
I also didn’t go to hear what those 75% had to say (although to be fair…some of what those other candidates actually said and how they said it was significantly far more concerning than even I would’ve initially suspected…more on that later).
I went to hear only one person.
Specifically, I wanted to see how he handled himself. More importantly, would he “modify his message” to placate the hostile masses.
Let me just say that what I saw should change your mind (if you haven’t already) regarding this particular candidate for Michigan Governor.
I’ll also get to why I waited this long to post this.
