Had the police brutality protests focused on what we all watched on the video of a bad cop killing a civilian, all of America would be on board for meaningful changes and justice.
Saul Alinsky would be proud of what we are all witnessing on the streets of America today. His Rules for Radicals tactics are being carried out flawlessly.
The question remains as to whether or not this movement will cannibalize itself, or simply fade with past social change movements.
The reason is simple, the selfishness of the organizers, and leaders within these social groups which focuses on the abuse of power solely from the perspective of one demographic, generally at the expense of the mass majority of everyone else.
An example would be the difference in treatment from both the government and the media towards lockdown, and police brutality protesters who are both protesting abuse of power.

It is rare when one topic can bring everyone to stand still, but a virus has and it has revealed and even more dangerous virus--Government overreach and abuse of power. We should be unified instead, we are even more divided.

Each of us will handle ourselves as we feel appropriate, and we don’t require the government to treat us like children dictating terms of our survival, nor do we need them deeming our work “essential or not.” The economic damage caused by the government could be felt for years to come by each of us.
Add to the mix another type of government over-reach, which are the abuses by a few in law enforcement, and then add in political opportunists who ready to exploit a tragedy and what you wind up with is rage and civil unrest
Gretchen Whitmer has clearly been waiting for the opportunity to flex her Grrrl power.
Kurt Schlichter appropriately addresses the rise of these ‘Karens‘ recently. His today piece hits a home run as usual (the guy bats about .880, and all of them bring in runs) He writes:
“These mewling Mussolinis need to be slapped back, verbally if not physically, but as long as we are under this lockdown, they will not stop. They live for this, the chance to dictate to and control us, and the problem is some of them have positions of power.
This is not to say that the Chinese coronavirus pandemic is fake or unserious, nor that we should ignore it and pretend that it’s just another flu. It is to say that there is more going on now than a respiratory ailment. There’s an economic ailment that most of us are painfully aware of, and there is a freedom ailment, where the Karens in everyday life and in the corridors or power are taking advantage of this crisis to let their fascist flag fly.
When you have some petty official commanding Christians not to gather together in worship, that’s a line that they don’t get to cross. ..”
That line they don’t get to cross..
Truly you must read the rest, then read whatever the hell he writes every day he writes it from here on out.
I have something that I am happy to unveil to you today: The Michigan Patriot Action Center. A team of conservative patriots in Oakland County have been working on it for several months, and we are very proud of what we have come up with!
This legislative center will help you stay up-to-date on bills that directly impact your freedom and your pocketbook. It is regularly updated with new legislative action updates every week. So you always know the status of each bill, which committee the bill is in, when a relevant committee hearing will take place, basic talking points about the legislation, and receive instructions on how to take productive action to move the bill forward.
All of this information is available on the internet but it is often scattered and difficult to find. Sometimes the legislation itself is difficult to decipher because it was written by lobbyists in a deliberately vague manner, and activists might not know how to describe it. That is why we analyze each bill, and provide a basic script for you to use during outreach. We are centralize all of the pertinent information to make productive action much easier.
I do bill tracking around the country for the Tenth Amendment Center, and sometimes only a few dozen phone calls can move a bill in the right direction so if we utilize this bill center to its full potential, we can all make a real difference. Additionally, we are always working to improve the project. Right now, it is hosted from Google docs which is very easy to use. We are always looking to expand so if you have any comments, please email us. We are also organizing a group of individuals in each state rep district and state sen district to increase the power of this center.
The 'other' definition of "force" once again rears its ugly head.
The logical conclusion to an over applied nanny state is the use of violence to prevent one from hurting oneself.
The Stings are on. Grants to step up ‘enforcement’ (key use of words here) have been doled out. Click on Detroit says:
The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office will be participating in a mandatory seat belt enforcement grant beginning May 23-June 5.
Take the money, or else.
Indeed. Click it, or we’ll put a gun to your head to save your life. As Michigan goes into the high travel Memorial Day weekend, the stage is set once again to punish those who tempt fate by not strapping in. In Macomb County they want to do it the nice way:
Extra patrols start Monday and continue through June 5 as part of the latest “Click it or Ticket” campaign, targeting motorists who are not wearing seat belts.
“Our primary goal is always to encourage voluntary compliance with the law. For those drivers who do not comply, our deputies will deliver warnings or issue violations as the circumstances dictate,” Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham said.
Understand the WHY of the United States of America.
Reposted from a couple of years ago.
Since then, even more highlighting has been added to be fully relevant in today’s political climate. Some have said that certain conditions of tyranny of the day were hardly to the level that our current conditions. For the smallest of taxes without representation added to a number of stated complaints, men pledged their lives; their fortunes to the pursuit of true liberty and a legacy of exceptionalism. Enjoy.
Happy Independence Day Michigan.

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

Rock solid traditionalist, decorated veteran and American conservative Agema, is apparently still living rent free in the penthouse suite of the minds of those who would radically alter this nation. The ‘list’ originally published in late 2014 is published by CAIR ostensibly to identify “Islamophobic Individuals.” Arguably, the list is a ‘hit’ instruction list, though CAIR denies (lies / taqiyya ) such a connection. CAIR updated the list a few weeks ago keeping Agema on it in position 17. (Alphabetical by first name.)
As the ‘religion of peace’ radical islam inserts itself into American culture as accepted and promoted, perhaps it would be good to ask folks if they believe that there is any compatibility of liberty with sharia law? Perhaps even our liberal friends might consider the personal danger posed to their beloved homosexual activists? Arguably, as seen in European nations where islamic resettlement has happened, it may only be recognized when it is too late. Agema and many others who are on the list have been up front in their belief that sharia is not only incompatible, but is dangerous to our way of life.
