- It is completely
despicable the Michigan State Police, and our elected representatives in Lansing, allow/advocate placing a tax on our Amendment II right, which "shall not be infringed." This falls in line with asset forfeiture policing for profit.

Snyder: Planned Parenthood defunding plan 'unconstitutional
Michigan's left-leaning "Republican" governor may decide to not enforce the ban!
Michigan's Republican-led Legislature on Tuesday approved a $56.8 billion budget for next year that seeks to kill aid for Planned Parenthood despite a warning from GOP Gov. Rick Snyder the ban may be unconstitutional.
The Planned Parenthood drama punctuated an otherwise smooth budget process for legislative leaders and the term-limited governor, who reached broad agreement on the budget last month after officials identified a
$500 million surplus
The budget deal includes $330 million in extra funding for road repairs and transportation projects next year, $100 million for Snyder's new talent attraction plan and the largest per-pupil school funding boost of its kind since 2002, despite decreases in the number of students and the Governerd's own commission admitting instruction quality continues to decrease.

++ Scouts of America: Take me off your mailing list!!!!
By Joel F. Hansen
I already told you a month ago to remove me from your mailing list. I no longer want to hear from the "Scouts of America." I only have ever belonged to the Boy Scouts of America. I don't belong to the "Scouts of America." I set forth my reasons for this in my former email. I copy it to you below for your edification. PLEASE STOP SENDING ME YOUR MATERIALS. YOU HAVE JOINED THE ENEMIES OF LIBERTY, MORALITY, AND EVERYTHING THE BSA STANDS FOR .
I read the instructions for the upcoming Jamboree where it indicates you are making sure there are plenty of condoms available. In other words now the Scouts of America is promoting sexual intercourse between boys and girls at camp. No wonder you are allowing girls into the Scouts. The boys need sex partners. How horrible! How terrible! How disgusting! How immoral! How awful! You are contributing to the downward plunge into total immorality in America, which will result and is resulting in the loss of everything this country and the BSA used to stand for.
The Scout Oath says "I will keep myself morally straight." How is distributing condoms at your Jamboree going to help our young boys (and now girls) do that? How can a Scout be "Obedient" to the ten commandments which outlaw adultery and fornication? The New Testament condemns fornication and extra marital sex. The BSA was based on Biblical Principles. You have converted it into a sex club for boys and girls. You are also setting aside places for these young people to drink alcoholic beverages at the Jamboree. What are you trying to do? Get them drunk enough so that they will be willing to engage in premarital sex?
I am so disgusted with your organization for doing this that I can't express the depth of my disappointment and anger. PLEASE remove me from your list. I do not want to be associated with an organization which is subjecting our young people to a Woodstock type orgy instead of an uplifting, moral, and righteous event, where they used to learn the Godly principles upon which the BSA was founded. Baden Powell must be rolling overin his grave at the destruction of his once proud organization. I'm sure my father is doing the same.
++ Governments And Social Media Companies Are Collaborating To Censor Anyone That Would Dare To Question Mainstream Media Narrative - The era of free and unfettered speech on the Internet is rapidly ending. All over the world, national governments are working very closely with social media companies to take control of "Internet news". Up until recently, the Internet really was a wonderful marketplace of ideas, and ordinary people like you and I were empowered to share information with one another like never before in human history. But now the elite have seen the power that this can have, and they are cracking down hard. The term "fake news" has come to mean any source that would dare to question the official narratives that are being fed to us from the mainstream media, and in reality the push to censor "fake news" is really just an all-out effort to eliminate independent thought.
The Chinese are not just filtering out a few legitimately fake news stories. The truth is that they are systematically censoring anything that does not fit the official narratives that they want the public to believe.
This is the greatest threat to freedom of speech that any of us have ever seen, and it has started in the United States too. Late last year, YouTube made an announcement that it had decided to hire "10,000 new moderators" to "flag content"...
as Secretary of State asked the Supreme Court in 1796 if an Art. V convention could be restricted. When not assured, he feared to call one. He wrote to Wilson C. Nicholas (Sept. 7, 1803)
"Our peculiar security is in the possession of a written Constitution. Let us not make it a blank paper by construction."
I certainly would not want a Constitutional Convention. I mean whoa. Who knows what would come out of that?" Link
"A constitutional convention is a horrible idea," Scalia replied. "This is not a good century to write a constitution." Video @ 1:06:22

We are praying for follow-up success from Singapore and the G-7 Summit, That the Deep State is held accountable and trimmed, and that you and yours have a great week!
National and International
++ Singapore Summit a Huge Success!!!
"President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a document on Tuesday stating that Pyongyang would work toward "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula"- a historic concession, which was one of the requirements the U.S. sought at the summit in Singapore.
Trump said at a press conference that he will be ending joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea.
He also said Kim agreed to destroy a 'major' missile testing site, but did not offer specific details.
The joint declaration states that the U.S. has committed to providing "security guarantees" to Pyongyang. Trump told reporters that the remains of U.S. prisoners of war and those missing in action during the Korean War will also be returned.
Even CNN agrees
"Just landed," Trump tweeted shortly after touching down at Joint Base Andrews. "A long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office.
There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea."
++ G-7 "Partners" shocked they can no longer screw the USA

"Just another G7 summit where other countries expect America will always be their bank.
After years of playing whack-a-mole against the USA, bending American presidents and taxpayers over the barrell and shoving it to us, the crybaby ally chiefs are shocked that
they can't continue the practice. I am fed up with the World Trade Association and the U.N., even NATO and G& - screwing the USA as we pay most of their costs to do it to us.
You go, Trump!
++ USA Rescinds Support for G7 Deal
"Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!" Trump tweeted.
Functional good governance requires respect for the rule of law. Here the former Director of the FBI, and those under his charge, utterly failed to respect the rules.
++ Prevailing Wage Repeal!! Saving taxpayers $400 Million a year on government construction projects.
he Michigan legislature last Wednesday passed prevailing Wage Repeal, an issue MCU has worked on for 40 years! Petitions for the initiative obtained enough signatures, sent it to the legislature for consideration. The legislature could have let the issue go to the ballot, but chose to take it up and approve it on Wednesday. Shortly after the Senate passed it 23-14, the House passed the measure 56-53. In both chambers Democrats and a handful of Republicans voted against it.
The issue does not go to Gov. Snyder who promised to veto such a measure. It becomes law immediately!
We should get about five miles of roads repaired for the price of four under the the old laws that limited bidding to only higher priced - mostly union contractors. THIS IS A HUGE WIN! Article

Gilbert seals $618M tax incentive package for 4 Detroit projects -
Dan Gilbert, the billionaire who has overhauled downtown Detroit by resurrecting historic buildings, sealed one of his biggest Motor City deals yet by getting final approval Tuesday for a $618 million tax incentive plan.
The largest tax subsidy ever awarded in Michigan will fuel Gilbert's $2.2 billion plan to create the tallest building in the city on the empty Hudson's block on Woodward Avenue; develop 3 acres of mainly vacant space on the Monroe Block; renovate the equivalent of seven football fields of interior space at the long-dormant Book Tower and Building on Washington Boulevard; and add an 11-story annex to the One Campus Martius building.
The approval by the board of the Michigan Strategic Fund in Lansing on Tuesday was the final bureaucratic hurdle for the tax incentive package. The $618 million amount "is a new height for us," Greg Tedder, an executive vice president of the Michigan Economic Development Corp., said at a press conference Tuesday.
The strategic fund is part of the MEDC (Rick Snyder was its first Chair).
By comparison, construction of the $863 million Little Caesars Arena received $329.1 million in tax subsidies earlier this decade. More

speaks of the motivation that pushed him and his partner, Dr. Steven Lantier to divest themselves from the government-insurance-hospital system back in the late 1990s:
They wanted to stop enabling what Smith identified as "financial serial killers," so-called non-profit institutions that end up charging astronomical prices for healthcare yet have no qualms about bankrupting defenseless patients who are unable to pay those prices. (Thanks, Abigail)

Comment: Medical Transparency is part of the answer. The clinic across the street from yours might have much better results at half the price. We will never know until prices are published. Better yet, proces with a rating system foir success of various procedures.
There is a price score card for pharmaceuticals.
published prices for most drugs at various pharmacies in your area, and was coupons that might even beat your insurance co-pays. We need such a thing for health care.
