Michigan Elections 2018 Questions

In the 2018 Michigan elections before you cast your vote ask yourself……Which candidate is going to do anything for the average citizen in Michigan? Which candidate is going to continue to keep church and state separate? Remember…casting a vote for a letter designation is the “sheeples” way of casting a vote. Don’t be a follower and follow the Herder do your own research on the candidates and vote wisely! 

Our Founding Fathers were crystal clear in what they wanted for our Republic and it was not a government controlled and run by the church! It was their intension to be a government run by of all the people, for all the people, by all the people not some group of religious zealots jamming down the citizens throats with their beliefs they wanted for everyone!

Ted Cruz Pulls Establishment “Wool” Over Supporters Eyes…Big Time!

All of the Cruz supporters say he is ant-establishment and will fight the establishment and return our government to limited government, conservative and principled values. This will be one heck of a trick if one bothers to do the research and connect the dots.

Let’s take a close look at the credentials of this “ineligible” so-called anti-establishment fraud of a candidate shall we. Let’s also put aside the eligibility issue for now and see just who Ted Cruz really is. Also let’s put aside his connections to the Big Wall Street Bankers and his off-shore tax free accounts in the Caribbean as well.

Connecting the Political Establishment Dots and some of the Players

MITeaPartyNews: Aug 2014 Senator Ted Cruz took a tour through Michigan with “establishment” power broker Ronald Weiser. Check out this endorsement. In Michigan many of the Tea Parties have been high-jacked and co-opted by the establishment MIGOP. Article continues below audio picture.

Eileen and Ron Weiser
Who is Ron Weiser? He is wealthy, politically well connected establishment power broker and has been a dedicated member and “crony” friend of the Republican Party for many years as to advance his personal and Party over people agenda.

Many Republicans in Michigan believe he has “earned the right” to this position as a reward and recognition for all he has done for the Republican Party.

Michigan Board of Education Member Eileen Weiser
His wife, Eileen, was on the State Board of Education from 1999-2006 but failed to win a second term. She now sits on the National Assessment Governing Board, which oversees the National Assessment of Educational Progress test such as the common core standards which she advocates. She was elected back on the board in 2010.

Eileen Weiser testified before the Michigan Senate on The Common Core Standards asking Senate lawmakers to restore funding for the standards quickly!

Ron Weiser was the chairman of the Michigan Republican Party elected to that office in February 2009.  Prior to his election as the MIGOP chairman he was anointed the MIGOP Finance Chair under then chairman Saul Anuzis a strong supporter and advocate of the National Popular Vote initiative.

Ron Weiser, whose prolific fundraising had “earned” him the US ambassadorship to Slovakia under George W. Bush, Weiser got his start in politics in 1989 when then-Senate Majority Leader John Engler asked for his help in his first run for governor. John Engler created the “failed” MEDC where he appointed a little know political crony Rick Snyder as chairman of this new government entity. 5 John McCain

 Weiser is also well-known in national GOP circles, having been appointed as a national co-chairman for  GOP presidential candidate John McCain’s 2007-08 campaign. Other anointed accolades that earned Ron Weiser prominence within the GOP establishment “club” he was awarded a finance chairmanship of the RNC by Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus.  4 Reince Priebus Ron Weiser

“It gives me great pleasure to announce the appointment of Ambassador Ron Weiser as RNC National Finance Chairman,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

Former MIGOP chairman Robert “Bobby” Schostak was finance  chairman under Ron Weiser when Mr. Wiser was MIGOP chairman. 6 Bobby Schostak Sure looks like the same “establishment” players are playing musical chairs with their positions in the MIGOP doesn’t it?

Ted Cruz the Bush Years 8 Cruz Bush
Long before Ted Cruz was a big-name senator wowing the religious crowd at Liberty University in the early days of his presidential bid, he was just another lawyer toiling away in virtual anonymity under George W. Bush.

George W. Bush is ‘the person most responsible’ for Ted Cruz’s political success
Oh how Party loyalty changes.” I just don’t like the guy,” said George W. Bush of Cruz in Denver suggesting that Cruz had “hijacked” the Texas GOP.

This rift is again drawing attention to one of the central themes in Cruz’s political universe and his years working for and “enthusiastically” supporting the same Bushes. Cruz was a part of George W. Bush’s 2000 presidential campaign, then a member of his administration in roles at the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission.

“Few, if any, in American politics have more of an “establishment resume” than Sen. Cruz,” said Stuart Stevens, the top strategist for Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign.

“Ivy League degrees, worked for Gov. Bush and President Bush, Supreme Court clerk, U.S. senator, multimillionaire. It’s difficult to be more of an establishment figure.”

BuzzFeed published excerpts of a little-known contribution Cruz made to a 2004 book called “Thank You, President Bush.” In a 16-page chapter, Cruz effusively praised George W. Bush on a range of issues, sometimes “in direct contradiction with his more recent criticism of the Bush administration,” can you say “flip-flopper” Romney style!

If you want to know what’s really going on in the political arena read what the “left” is saying that the “right” doesn’t want you to know. Reading only what the “right” spoon feeds will keep you dumb downed within the Party where they want you. Yeah Party “unity” that ought to do it. Oh my…

Crony Political Donor Money makes “your” Elected Officials Beholding

Are Michigan Roads a Priority or New Senate Digs? Just raise the “Taxes” instead! Snyder Appointee Ron Boji & Senator Pat Colbeck Contributions and Corruption. Ron Boji funnels money through the REALTORS PAC, Michigan Republican Party and has also donated to Democrats.

Note: Senator Colbeck voted in favor of this new overpriced Senate building!

2013 Senate Bill 509: Authorize new state Senate office building. Introduced by Sen. Randy Richardville (R) on September 17, 2013, to authorize the sale of the Farnum Senate office building in Lansing and construction of a new building for Senators’ offices. Richardville’s Leadership Fund donated to Colbeck’s campaign coffers. Payment made for “yes vote” aka beholding.

The tie’s between the Democrat and Republican factions of the “Party of One” is there for all to see if only you open your eyes and do a little research! Rest assured it’s not just Colbeck either!

If you look at all the money players within the MIGOP you will clearly see they are donating and colluding with both factions through campaign contributions.

Why Donald Trump’s Mouth is a Nuclear Weapon against the “Party of One”

Democrat Republican Logos ProblemAmerica has two big problems. America is under attack by a vicious one-two combination. America has been ruined by two parties. And Trump’s mouth solves both problems. Trump’s mouth is a nuclear weapon. July 30, 2015 by Wayne Allyn Root.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty®. The biased, clueless liberal mainstream media are in shock and awe. They have no idea why so many Americans love Donald Trump. But the answer is so simple and clear. Just ask any conservative. Trump is a breath of fresh air. Trump is the answer to what ails America, simply because he kills two birds with one stone. Trump with Ronald Reagan

Democrats clearly hate American exceptionalism, capitalism, and entrepreneurship along with Judeo-Christian values.

They hate business owners (see “You didn’t build that”) and blame American patriotism, white people, business owners and Christians for every problem in the world today.

The Democratic Party is riddled with socialists, Marxists and communists hell-bent on “fundamentally changing America.” The Democratic Party is filled with: Frauds (see Obama, Jonathan Gruber and the lies used to sell Obamacare), Traitors (see Obama, John Kerry and the new Iran nuclear treaty), Thieves and con men (see Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.)

Reckless wasters of taxpayer money (see Obama’s Kenya trip that cost us over $50 million dollars for one day in a country that offers America nothing)  and outright criminals (see Clinton’s upcoming criminal investigation over her 32,000 deleted emails — some of them classified — and Obama’s use of the IRS to target, persecute and even attempt to imprison political opponents and critics.)

But the GOP may be worse. If there’s anything worse than evil, its pathos. The GOP leadership is riddled with cowards; wimps; and naïve, feckless, country club powder puffs that have no clue how to fight back against the Democrats’ ruining America and destroying our children’s future with debt.

Yes, Democrats are ruining America and destroying our children’s future. But Republicans are standing by helplessly, scared, petrified, allowing it to happen. Reagan Trump Revolution

I suspect many of the Republican leaders in Washington are either being bribed or blackmailed. Exhibit A is Supreme Court Justice John Roberts, House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

These guys are all either bought and paid for or someone is holding a gun to their heads (along with a photo of them in bed doing something shocking).

Don’t believe me? See Dennis Hastert. They are all doing something morally wrong or breaking some law, and Obama’s partners in the NSA and IRS are always watching.

America is being lost because the GOP is bringing knives to a gunfight. The only way to save America is to bring a nuclear weapon to a gun fight. And Trump’s mouth is a nuclear weapon.

It’s time to stop being “nice.” Nice is OK for playing golf with Muffy at the country club. But nice doesn’t work in politics. Nice guys finish last in politics. Nice is getting our country ruined. Nice is killing middle-class jobs. Nice is wiping out middle-class incomes. Nice has led to negative GDP growth. Nice has led to more businesses closing than opening each day for the first time in America’s history.

Nice has left the border wide open to an illegal alien invasion, the bankruptcy of America and a terrorist attack like 9/11.

Nice has led to disaster and disgrace all over the globe. The world no longer has any respect for, or fear of, America. We are in decline and disarray. We are headed for collapse and disaster.

Into this crisis steps “the nuclear mouth,” Donald Trump. He isn’t afraid to put America first. He isn’t afraid to tell the truth. He isn’t afraid of what the media thinks. He isn’t afraid of being called a “racist” for pointing out how Obama has damaged and destroyed America. He isn’t afraid to question Obama’s very mysterious, questionable and troubling past, much of it sealed away in darkness.

Trump isn’t afraid to fight like our future is on the line because he understands it is. He isn’t afraid to offend. He isn’t afraid to expose the cowards and frauds in his own GOP leadership for what they are. He refuses to be “politically correct” when he sees corruption and idiocy. He won’t back down or apologize for telling the truth.

Of course, the evil Democrats, corrupt and cowardly GOP leadership, and biased mainstream media hate him. They are all rooting for another Mitt Romney. Let’s compare Romney to Trump. They are both rich white guys; famous, successful businessmen; and Republican presidential candidates, past and present. That’s where the similarity ends.

Romney is a very nice guy. Romney has manners. Romney would never offend anyone. Romney let the media run roughshod over him. Romney would never say something rude or offensive about Obama or Clinton. Romney would never accuse them of crimes against the American people. Romney would never prosecute Obama or Clinton if he were elected. And there’s one other difference: Romney lost.

It’s no coincidence that Romney lost. The last thing we need now is nice. It’s also no coincidence that the people in power — evil Democrats, the corrupt GOP leadership and the mainstream media — all want another Romney.

They want the status quo. They want to keep the bribes and blackmail coming. They don’t want anyone to upset the apple cart. They are scared to death of Trump, who doesn’t play by traditional rules or etiquette. They are scared to death of a guy who can’t be bribed. They are scared to death of a guy who is tuned into the hopes, dreams and fears of middle-class Americans. They are scared to death of a street fighter.

Mostly, they are scared to death of Trump’s mouth — the kind of mouth that could stir up a citizen revolution and topple “business as usual” in Washington, D.C.

Yes, Trump’s mouth is a nuclear weapon. And that’s precisely why we love him. You know what I say: Bombs away!

Gang of Five Targets’ Michigan’s RNC Committeeman

While many so-called Republican legislators here in Michigan have called for Dave Agema’s resignation this whole attempt was orchestrated by a “hypocritical” former MIGOP chair with the “threat” of withholding funds to the RNC and MIGOP candidates. Betsey DeVos on Fox NewsMr. Agema, a staunch principled conservative who believes in the GOP platform and its planks was elected at the Detroit convention by an “overwhelming” majority of the MIGOP membership.

However, the Party elitist didn’t like that; they didn’t like that one bit. And ever since his election they have been hell bent on getting him ousted (Purged) and replaced with a more loyal establishment go a long to get along UN-principled “liberal” representative.

Enter the “Gang of Five” the major players in this attempted coup. While this “gang” has reached out to others with similar “threats” of who knows what whether financial support or committee assignments’ if they didn’t play ball in calling for his resignation and the fact remains they don’t care for the memberships choice!

Let’s take a closer look at the “Gang of Five’s” Purge Timeline shall we. Rience Priebus

Rience Priebus was told to eliminate Michigan’s Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema or Betsey DeVos would withhold a $750,000 donation from the RNC.

Could it be according to “unconfirmed” reports she has a gay son or close relative who is gay and didn’t appreciate the opposition to the gay agenda in spite of the GOP Platform?

Bobby Schosatk and Snyder asks Scott Walker to call for Mr. Agema’s resignation one day before an RNC meeting to put pressure on him to quit. Schostak Snyder WalkerSome of the RNC members ask Walker why he got involved in a State issue – Walker says, because Schostak and Snyder asked me to. He didn’t even know what the issue was!

Betsy DeVos decries Dave Agema’s so-called hate speech for his sharing of an article by former member of the United States House of Representatives, and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel Allen West on social media. This despite Betsy’s and her families’ history of funding bigoted initiatives. BetsyDevos Hypocrite

No matter what side of the issue you’re on you need to evaluate both sides. The Republicans will never tell its membership what they don’t want them to know so how do you find out what that is?

When politicians speak it’s not what the right hand is saying it’s what the “left” hand is doing! “If you want to find out the dirt look to the left.”

“Constitution Party” Opposes CCS as Lansing Republicans Implement Common Core Standards

The Michigan affiliate of the Constitution Party has released a 2015 Resolution Opposing The Common Core Standards ~ USTPM 2015 Resolution Opposing Common Core ~ USTPM

Even the chairwoman of The National Governors Association (NGA), one of the developers and owners of the copyright of the Common Core standards has issued a statement condemning CCS.

“It is outrageous that President Obama and Washington bureaucrats are trying to dictate how Oklahoma schools spend education dollars” ~ Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R).

The Michigan House took a “recorded vote” for all citizens to see how their legislators voted however, the cowardly Senators chose to take a “voice vote” as to hide their vote from the citizens.

*Definition of voice vote – A vote in which the presiding officer states the question, then asks those in favor and against to say “Yea” or “Nay,” respectively, and announces the result according to his or her judgment. The names or numbers of senators voting on each side are “not” recorded. Common Core Stop

Common Core standards for K-12 students approved by Senate
The Republican controlled House and Senate has approved (CCS) as to continue and expand the “indoctrination” of Michigan’s school children.

Gov. Rick Snyder praised the legislative action. Snyder said in a statement. “The standards are supported by educators and the business community alike.

I know many educators and parents that “do not” approve of the common core standards so the good governor is stating lies! He also lied about the state budget as well.

2013 House Concurrent Resolution 011
Introduced by Rep. Tim Kelly (R) on September 25, 2013, to authorize the State Board of Education and the Michigan Department of Education to spend money to implement the “Common Core” curriculum.

Michigan implementation of the Common Core Standards
June 15 2010 adopted with full implementation in the 2012-2013 school year.

ALERT: On the “Faux” TeaParty Patriots of Michigan Facebook Group

My fellow Conservative Facebook Patriots. It seems we have a “fake” Patriot group among our midst! TeaParty Patriots of Michigan Edited

R Al Bain has been given the “boot” from the “Faux” TeaParty Patriots Of Michigan Facebook Group all because they can’t handle the truth. Administrator R George Dunn an avid Mike Huckabee supporter is behind this boot.

The truth of the matter is this group is nothing more than a Mike Huckabee supporter group and anyone who speaks against their beloved “Huckster” will be booted from this fake Patriot group!

This group should be renamed for what it really is a Huckabee supporter group for it surly is NOT a Patriot group!

Some months back another administrator Julie Grace Forster another ardent Mike Huckabee supporter did the same thing to R Al Bain because he didn’t support her candidate.

After several group members asked why I was removed from this group the above administrator stated: I just decided R Al Bain “needed a little time out.” This goes right along with the same mentality of the other establishment supporters.

It was only after this blow back by other members and questioning of this removal by many of the other true Patriot members of this group did one of the administrators re-add R Al Bain back into the group.

Is this a form of censorship? Is this along the lines of Nazism? Is this along the lines of Socialist and Communist? You make the call.

A comment posted on a thread in this group by Julie Grace Foster reads like this:

Julie Grace Foster – You repeat lies like Saul Alinsky expecting people to eventually believe them. That comment was directed at another member who doesn’t support her candidate.

I guess the truth backed up with facts and links are lies! Jed Clampet Tarnation 250 X 235

Common Core and the Trucker Wiser Flip-Flop Connection

Like a bad horror movie called a Nightmare on Christmas Eve this script features questionable characters. Starring in this production is Ebenwiser Scrooge a man with millions of unscrupulous ways to buy political seats. Common Core Wiser Vote No

Co-Starring is the clumsy overweight not too bright fella “Bad Santa.” This con-man known as “Bad Santa” looks like he’s been hanging out at a Fat Fellas BBQ convention.

As the movie unfolds it turns out this real “Bad Santa” is a radio show co-host on the poorly rated, small market and very undesirable RINO Supporters Broadcasting Network (RSBN).

Later it is revealed that both, the Wiser of the two and “Bad Santa” are caught in a tangled web of “deception” involving sub-prime mortgages, real-estate development and construction. Then the movie takes a corrupt twist into the political arena. Bad Santa

These two con-men decide together they can pull the wool of deception over the eyes of the low information voters.  With their con-man abilities, and the Wiser of the two’s money, they scheme to buy a political seat.

The problem with their little scam is those low information voters find out they both have “flip-flopped” on a political issue they despise.

The Wiser of the two uses his massive wealth to purchase a respected high level conservative from Washington DC.

Ebenwiser fly’s Ted into the Motor City for an invite only event in an attempt to align himself with this respected conservative and con his invitees.

The Wiser of the two soon finds out that there’s a shortage of  “wool” to pull over the eyes of the would be state delegates to the upcoming convention. He then resorts to sending out a mass email claiming “False Attacks” in a devious attempt to court the sympathy vote.

The “buffoon” known as “Bad Santa” gets his 30 pieces of silver from the Wiser of the two, then travels around the state peddling his “Faux” conservative propaganda to whoever will buy it.

This all to “serve” his master the Wiser of the two, so the master can obtain the political seat he covets so desperately.  Common Core Children

I’m not going to give away the rest of this tantalizing B-Movie’s script, I’ll just  leave it to your imagination. Bah! Humbug!

Detroit Bailout Leaves Michigan Taxpayers On The Hook For More Than $195 Million – AND A LOT MORE!

1 Detroit Aid $195M

Below you will find just a few examples of how Michigan Taxpayers are on the hook for a hell of a lot more than this “Grand Crap Sandwich Bargain” of $195 Million of your tax dollars! If this isn’t leaving a bad taste in your wallet just wait, now that this is done they are working real hard for you up in Lansing to pass legislation as to raise your Gas Taxes too. 2 FilmTaxCredit

While Detroit Goes Bankrupt, Michigan Taxpayers Hand Disney’s ‘OZ’ Nearly $40 Million in Film Credits and this is but one example there are numerous other Film Subsidies that have and will be handed out to Obama’s Hollywood supporters!

The hard part to swallow is our legislators all think it’s funny that they are spending our tax dollars on this wasteful venture that corrupt politicians created in the first place. They won’t be out done they will all laugh when they pass yet more tax increases on we Taxpaying Citizens of Michigan. 3 Detroit Crony Capitalism

Can any Taxpayer in Michigan explain to me why our taxes should be used for the rich and wealthy as to continue to build their empires?

The Taxpayers of Michigan have had to pony up over $515 Million in subsidies for Ford Field, Comerica Park and the New Red Wings Arena not to mention the Pontiac Silverdome which was built and maintained with a taxpayer subsidy buried in an Agriculture Bill.


State Awards $830K Taxpayer Money to new Detroit Grocery

4 Detroit GroceryMore than $1.2 million in grants and loans have been awarded to the owners of the grocery and retail center it anchors. The “failed” Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC) announced the funding this week. The money was approved by the Michigan Strategic Fund.

The project was awarded a $830,000 grant by the state of Michigan’s economic development agency. That’s on top of Detroit Economic Growth Corp. providing a $200,000 loan and a $225,000 loan through Invest Detroit, which funds city development projects.


$127.5M in aid OK’d for projects in Pontiac, Detroit, Cheboygan
The Michigan Strategic Fund approved a request today for a $125 Million Taxpayer Funded subsidy to Green Box NA Michigan for a yet-to-be-built plant in Detroit. The Michigan Strategic Fund is just one of the many tentacles of the “failed” Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC).

State to spend up to $20 Million to improve Belle Isle 5 Belle Isle Grand Prix
The state (we the taxpayers) said it plans to spend up to $20 million to improve the park during the first 18-36 months of state management.

Belle Isle Roads Resurfacing
For the 2014 Grand Prix in Detroit on Belle Isle $3,500,000 Million allocated on December 18, 2013 from the states Trunkline Fund. So again the rich and well connected benefit from we taxpayers such as Roger Penske with his “Team Penske” motorsports who raced and won at the Grand Prix this year on Belle Isle.  

6 Detroit M1 RailWayne County OK’s $3 Million Taxpayer Money on road fixes for new M1 Rail street car project
Michigan Taxpayers should question why the money wasn’t being spent to fix potholes. “The money being utilized for this project is supposed to be restricted for road purposes.”  Being as Detroit and Wayne County both are broke and facing financial issues with Bankruptcy along with the state in control how could this be?

Could Wayne County Go Bankrupt Next?
With the news of Detroit’s bankruptcy still sinking in some financial experts say Wayne County could be next. But other cities are facing similar financial difficulties as well…can you say Flint as but just one other example?
