My friend Abby is right about outright partisanship being counter productive when fighting big (and oppressive) gov.
I understand that the Republican party has many things to say about Democrat politicians, but all of it is useless blather if the Republicans are complicit in their action, or lack thereof. Think state police ticketing for haircuts, and state attorney generals ordering license revocation because someone needs to work to live.
We’ve said it often enough here, that an R or D is no guarantee. Our state government mechanization has reached critical mass, and is much like an overly aggressive and hungry dog that knows no master any longer, and sees us as its meal. The binding chain needs to be far stronger, or the beast needs to be put down. The dog should not be in control of US.
Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
At 6:31 in the morning on November 4th, a dump of 149,772 votes came in to the State of Michigan. Biden received 96% of those votes and the State miraculously went to him. Has the Michigan State Senate started their review of the Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 yet, or are they about to start? If not, they should be run out of office. Likewise, at 3:42 in the morning, a dump of 143,379 votes came in to the state of Wisconsin, also miraculously, given to Biden. Where did these “votes” come from? Both were State Election changing events, and that is on top of the other corruption without even including the fact that neither state got Legislative approval, which is required under the United States Constitution.
Following an appalling display of hubris from elected officials on “both sides” of the aisle over the undeniably obvious election fraud which occurred last month, Conservatives are not only asking themselves why this level of theft has been allowed to happen against President Trump given the actors involved, but are now asking themselves “What’s next”?
Michigan Secretary of State issues guidance to destroy electronic poll books.
The Michigan Secretary of State has issued guidance to county clerks.
A press release from Senator Lana Theis:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Benson memo demanding deletion of electronic pollbook data questionable
The timing and motivation of a memorandum transmitted Monday by Secretary of State Joselyn Benson to all county clerks in the state demanding, among other things, the deletion of all electronic pollbook software and associated files is questionable, said Senator Lana Theis, Senator Aric Nesbitt and Senator Tom Barrett.
It’s an amazing state with resources and some wonderful people. Sporting opportunities are envied throughout the nation, and it’s the home to the TRUE national pastime, just going for a drive ..because you feel like it.
Unfortunately, we also have our dark side. The political makeup of the state continually blesses us with governors who not only have no business in supposedly ‘defending the constitution,’ but in fact do as much as they can to abridge it, or outright violate it. Sadly, we are always fighting the next disaster that is not natural, but caused by the wrong people occupying higher office doing exactly the wrong things.
While the intent of the power seekers we’ve enjoyed might well be truly direct and honorable, their actions reveal ignorance of common sense, economics, law, and for that matter, the reasons we have rule of law and our state and federal constitutions as well. The very actions taken when crisis arises are exactly what ought not happen.
This could not have been made more clear than with the election of Gretchen Whitmer, an over zealous community organizer, who until being governor was always on the losing team. Her perspective is made of loser ideas, loser goals, and a retarded view of the republic we live in. the people who voted for her were clearly stoned.
Michigan statewide results are unworthy of certification, period.
Michigan’s top election official has soiled the bed.
Not unexpected, but very real and is as evident as the mess dripping off 6tally sheets in Detroit since counting started Tuesday evening. Giving Jocelyn Benson the benefit of the doubt, I guess we could call the entire affair ..gross incompetence. You can decide if it is enough to explain illegal mailings, purposefully overwhelming clerks with procedure changes, and dropping late notice and unnecessary and illegal rules about firearms in election places.
Her office is apparently unavailable at the most critical times during the count, and when fraud is literally happening before folks eyes, there is no adherence to state law. To call this ‘planned malfeasance’ would be a compliment, as the evidence piles up making the case for felony election manipulation seemingly only possible in 2020.
In 2016 there weren’t agents in Michigan’s top offices. In 2016 they didn’t see Donald Trump even having even the slightest chance of winning the ‘blue state’ of Michigan. It’s 2020, and three criminals run the prison, and they saw him coming this time.
Antrim County offers a glimpse at what might happen when we have problems with electronic equipment and such, but Detroit is as Detroit as it has ever been, and with it’s large population, it offers great cover for the largest election fraud operation ever perpetrated on the voters in Michigan. this state has seen it for decades, and that is why there are laws that protect the sanctity of the vote, and why there are procedures to allow challenges to illegal ballots and over counting.
Jr, joined by Ted Nugent et al made an amazing speech in TC today!
Unscripted and impactful!
When folks started to arrive the temperatures were about 35 degrees, and the wind was blowing hard. The sun was shining however, and the Saturday Traverse City matinee to the main event Monday could not have been better. Donald Trump Junior blew it up!
General Jack Bergman (incumbent/candidate CD1), and John Roth (candidate R-104) opened the event, and were followed up with Ted Nugent and Cam Hanes doing warm up for the son of our President. A warm up I might add, that was both entertaining, (Think hunting stories about truck beds full of goats) but not even necessary!
Could a Supreme Court decision open the door to legal sanctions?
Michigan’s governor continues to violate the law.
Tomorrow begins that part of the process where our state’s highest court decides whether it agrees with our laws and constitution. It will decide whether it will join the executive branch and perform legal ju-jitsu to ‘protect’ Michigan citizens from the pandemic, or whether it will take the absolute legal and uncomfortable route of holding each of the branches to the purposefully limited and separated authority they wield.
There are reasons each branch of our government hold powers that are separate and distinct. This pandemic has very much revealed what happens when that separation is not upheld immediately. People through no act of their own will die needlessly.
A case before the Michigan Supreme Court suggest as much. An opinion piece in USA today highlights the plaintiff’s many concerns for the patients under his care.
One of my patients came to see me when he felt like he had nowhere else to turn. The governor’s orders prevented him from getting regular treatment for his diabetes. By the time he came to me, he was in a full-on medical emergency. He told me about an odor coming from his foot — it turned out to be gangrene. His kidneys were in full-blown failure.
We rushed him to the nearest hospital, but it was too late. His foot had to be amputated. And then, just days later, he died from complications.
None of this trauma had to happen. But happen it did, because of shortsighted executive orders issued unilaterally by Gov. Whitmer.
Irresponsible action from the governor, and the slow-to-act courts have resulted in misery and death for Michiganians.
Add to this the already huge death numbers of those exposed to the China virus in nursing homes due to the governor’s actions, it should give pause to those who think government protects us in any meaningful way. Clearly we cannot put our faith in those who are willing to break the law, if even ‘for our own good.’
Malfeasance and criminal disregard for the law must have consequence.
Such a concept is no stranger to the rest of us. Should it give pause to the state’s highest court as deliberations are made? Should the court waffle in it’s responsibilities in order to protect the sanctity of absolute government authority, or should it uphold the law which renders government leaders accountable and responsible?
And should an affirmative verdict that the governor has broken the law be issued, what are the consequences? What should they be?
We know. We know what the answer is.
And it should never have to be decided in such a way again.
The 1945 PA 302 does not grant unilateral power grab authority. PA 390 Provided a check on her (or any governor’s) ability to extend such authority and subordinates PA302 with the addition of extension rules.
No one should adhere to her tyrannical decrees beginning May 1, unless Michigan’s legislature makes the mistake of extending her Emergency Declaration. Be strong and hold the line Michigan.
LARA instruction clarifies the intent of Michigan to keep its citizens SICK
This is not a drill.
In the email inbox today is an instruction to physicians to REPORT any use outside of the ‘normal’ (accepted use) of hydroxychloroquine or lose their licenses. The following is the exact text: and available on their FB page as well
Dear Licensed Prescribers and Dispensers:
The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs has received multiple allegations of Michigan physicians inappropriately prescribing hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine to themselves, family, friends, and/or coworkers without a legitimate medical purpose.
Prescribing hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine without further proof of efficacy for treating COVID-19 or with the intent to stockpile the drug may create a shortage for patients with lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or other ailments for which chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are proven treatments. Reports of this conduct will be evaluated and may be further investigated for administrative action. Prescribing any kind of prescription must also be associated with medical documentation showing proof of the medical necessity and medical condition for which the patient is being treated. Again, these are drugs that have not been proven scientifically or medically to treat COVID-19.
