So stunning! So brave!
I had not realized that WXYZ’s Simon Shaykhet has become the Jim Acosta of CNN fame sensationalized Fake News with edited video to perpetuate the everything is an “outrage” narrative.
For us normal folks, I’d say the delivery driver f*cked around and found out that being an asshole when not obeying the Law while also refusing to comply with all said Law entails, it does indeed have a future of unpleasantry waiting for you.
And, to the virtue signaling neighbors and Mayor Jim Fouts that WXYZ gathered for their narrative furthering report, I say to you that when your neighborhoods go to Hell, you only have yourselves to blame for your lawlessness enabling actions.
First, the question must be asked: where was Justin Amash when lawless Democrats deployed their foot soldiers to issue invalid ‘Disorderly Persons‘ tickets to lawful, peaceful Michiganians demanding the return of their Right to Commerce? Go ahead, Liberaltarian clowns bleat away.
Now, let us get to the meat and potatoes of this post.
Want to hear a joke? Here, pull my finger.
No, I think Amash would make a wonderful candidate, especially since he is way behind in his district and has no chance of maintaining his Congressional seat. He almost always votes for the Do Nothing Dems anyway. I like him even more than Jill Stein! https://t.co/V8kutnfvIj

I do so love our President.
Just one day after state Rep. Jim Lower (R-Greenville) announced his primary campaign challenge to ‘Never Trumper’ U.S. Rep. Justin Amash (R-Cascade), one of Rep. Lower’s most conservative colleagues, Rep. John Reilly (R-Oakland) gave strong praise for Lower on the House Floor as well as on Facebook.
The remarks from Reilly carry some significance because he shares much in common with Amash. Like Amash, Reilly is one of only a few lawmakers to post explanations for each of his votes on Facebook. And Reilly often votes against the majority of his own party when he feels it violates his liberty-oriented principles.
According to various scorecards at MichiganVotes.org, Reilly has one of the most conservative voting records of any of his colleagues.
Yet Reilly saluted Lower the very day after the Congressman announced his bid to unseat Amash on the occasion of Reilly’s first bill of the year passing the House.
“This common sense bipartisan legislation has faced surprising hurdles at every step, but throughout the process, Local Government Chairman Representative Jim Lower helped move this legislation forward to do the right thing for these needy children,” Rep. Reilly posted on Facebook. “Thank you Representative Lower for your hard work and support for this bill.”
Reilly’s legislation, which would increase the number of children permitted in foster homes located on large properties of 20 acres or more from 6 to 10, had passed Lower’s committee last year, but was vetoed by then-Governor Rick Snyder. Rep. Reilly re-introduced the bill, which was referred again to Lower’s committee. After passing in the Local Government Committee, the bill was re-referred to the House Ways and Means Committee, where Lower testified in support of the bill alongside Reilly. The bill then passed that committee unanimously.
It is therefore possible that Reilly was simply thanking his colleague for his support of the bill. However, given that Lower announced his candidacy just the day before, Reilly may have went out of his way to signal his support for Lower. Reilly’s office declined to comment.
It is worth nothing that Reilly is an outspoken Trump supporter, for his nationalist ‘America First’ economic policies and restoration of U.S. sovereignty. Reilly is probably the liberty movement’s most shining legislator in Lansing. The fact that Reilly stands with Trump and not with Amash in his impeachment crusade shows that Amash’s hostility toward the President is alienating liberty supporters.
On the House floor, Reilly thanked “the chairman and representative of the 70th district” for his patience and support for the bill. House rules forbid members from naming one another in speeches.
Also, check out the first edition of my biweekly video blog series, “Cronyism in the Capitol.” It is about the legacy of Arlan Meekhof and the hidden costs of auto insurance reform!
Three side with the rule of law. Eleven put a blue ribbon on his prize.
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.

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
RightMi.com has no recommendation.
