THANK YOU TO OUR NEW MEMBERS! Your support, readership and sharing is making a difference and is much appreciated. We change public policies by changing pubic opinions. Perhaps we have been given a reprieve to restore God and His principles to our great land. We are pleased to work hard to equip you with a digest of key news, information and opinions to share. The work is not done. Please help! Pass this newsletter on to another or copy and share an article. Keep tuned as we strategize, network and prepare to win conservative governance.
MCU's MiCPAC was a HUGE success. More than 40 new groups were represented, and many new members received their pins. MCU's Board meets next in Southeast Michigan on June 10. Our Annual Board meeting will be in Plainwell July 8. There will be some new Directors selected from among current members as we broaden our base. Members are kept informed, have first option to events, and discounts to MCU events.

une 3/4/5 Everyone is encouraged to wear RED, which will be the color of altar paraments signifying the Spirit's fire burning brightly in our lives and in our church!
Pentecost is significant in both the Old and New Testaments. "Pentecost" is actually the Greek name for a festival known in the Old Testament as the Feast of Weeks (Leviticus 23:15; Deuteronomy 16:9)
. The Greek word means "fifty" and refers to the fifty days that have elapsed since the wave offering of Passover. The Feast of Weeks celebrated the end of the grain harvest.
Most interesting, however, is its use in Joel and Acts. Looking back to Joel's prophecy (Joel 2:8-32) and forward to the promise of the Holy Spirit in Christ's last words on earth before His ascension into heaven (Acts 1:8)
, Pentecost signals the beginning of the church age. Article
Was Creation real? Was there a "Big Bang" - was it an act of God? Was Darwin right? Did we get here by natural selection? It seems like the Middle East is a time capsule that keeps proving scripture!

++ Thank YOU! Thousands phoned and emailed the White House to encourage President Donald Trump to pull the USA out of the Paris Climate Accord. We were pleased to be part of that message. Below is a repeat of part of our last Newsletter asking you to take action. And that you did! Today President Trump made the announcement:
The Paris Accord would cost about $450 Billion a year and rising (mostly American money) and MIGHT decrease temperatures by 0.02% total, by the end of the century. That is after 83 years of intense redistribution of wealth, jobs and technology from the USA to other countries, and ceding much of our sovreignty to the UN and unelected committees we have no influence over. Prager U(Thanks Phyllis)
++ You may have received it in your email - a note from the President asking for our defense! "The United States is officially withdrawing from the Paris Climate Deal. It was a terrible deal that crushed hardworking Americans and handed over control of our country's future to global power brokers. Now those very same special interests -- the fake news media, Hollywood, lobbyists, and the entire corrupt establishment -- are attacking us from all fronts.
I need you to defend our decision to put America First and stand up to the vicious attacks coming our way."
Please use our talking points below.
Conservatives - Are we losing ground? We keep working for candidates who
vote for things ther campaign against! Wise strategy and excellent tactics will direct
our efforts to weaknesses in this relentless onslaught. We must step up efforts to get
our arguments out there, limited and cogent and aimed at precise targets.
One way we have effectively organized is by the use of Citizen Task Forces.
A typical task force meets in person about six times over a six month period to
study issues and propose conservative policies and solutions. We are looking at inviting panels on Energy and Health Care, and additional sessions on Education (Phase V) and Property Rights (Phase II). Participants pay their own expenses. They are expected to
bring experience and expertise on the subject, a commitment to conservative governance, and the ability and willingness to donate time and work in a collegial group atmosphere. Meetings are well organized and of limited duration, typically 90 minites and usually in Lansing. Additional phone or subcommittee meetings are sometimes used.
If you are interested, please email email@example.com with vitae or bio.

++ Liberal intimidation on college campuses. Say's liberal journalist Fareed Zakaria:
"American universities seem committed to every kind of diversity except intellectual diversity. Conservative voices and views are being silenced entirely," Zakaria said More (Thanks, Foster)
Years ago your editor collaborated on President Reagan's Strategic Defense Program at two separate agencies. The prospect drove liberal politicians nuts. If you eliminate the surety of "Mutally Assured Destruction" it might change the balance of power in favor of the USA. Democrats and many Republicans in our own country opposed it. Maybe they liked going to bed at night wondering if we might wake up? The threats of the Cold War were real.SDI forced the USSR to step up their military spending to an unsustainable amount, bringing the USSR down and freeing many nations forced to it. Here,, we see howe the work then prepared us to deal with the possibilities of rogue nations or groups today: Video shows moment US successfully intercepts target ICBM Link
++ Russia remains the greatest nuclear threat.
While today's threats are felt more likely from North Korea or Iran or a rogue group, Russia has proven capabilities and sees the USA as the greatest threat:
++ Democrats have a dilemma -
Trump urged to appoint special prosecutor on Obama's spying -
former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy suggests President Trump should flip the script on his inquisitors in three bold moves that would turn Democrats from hunters into the hunted:
Appoint a special counsel to investigate political spying, including unmasking and leaks to the media.
Have Congress hold hearings on whether the Obama Justice Department colluded with the Hillary Clinton campaign to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
Have Congress hold hearings on collusion between the Clinton Foundation and Russia.
McCarthy contends those investigations could succeed where the Trump-Russia collusion investigation failed, because, unlike the latter, there is evidence of actual wrongdoing.

Subject: June 3 in Detroit: March for Truth
Dear MoveOn member,
"Investigate Trump!" has been a clarion call of MoveOn members for nearly six months. Coast to coast, thanks to the tireless efforts of many MoveOn members, we have generated tens of thousands of calls to Congress and delivered more than one million petition signatures calling for the truth about Donald Trump. Our people-powered effort to sound the alarm about possible obstruction of justice and Trump's ties to Russia is working-that's why we're taking it to the next level. On June 3-this Saturday-we're teaming up with allies to hit the streets in a March for Truth.
There's a march near you in Detroit. Will you sign up now and ask your friends and family to join you? Just click here! Every day brings a new revelation about the outrageous and endlessly corrupt Trump administration. Republicans in Congress outright refuse to connect the dots about the Trump cartel's damage to our nation's Constitution-but MoveOn members see what's going on and are more committed than ever to demanding the truth. That's why we're coming together with allies on Saturday, June 3, in over 130 communities around the country, for the March for Truth, a grassroots initiative led by volunteers who have had enough of Trump's corruption and Republican attempts to hide the truth. There's a March for Truth event in Detroit! Click here to find out where to go to connect the dots on Donald Trump-and bring your family and friends!
Our Primer to help defend the President on the Paris Accord:
The summit of G7 wealthy nations pitted Trump against the leaders of Germany, France, Britain, Italy, Canada and Japan on several issues, with European diplomats frustrated at having to revisit questions they had hoped were long settled. Trump, who has previously called global warming a hoax, came under concerted pressure from the other leaders to honor the 2015 Paris Agreement on curbing carbon emissions.
According to alarmists, if the USA were to pull out of the Paris Accord the World Temperature might rise 0.3 degrees C in the next 83 years. Link Really? There is no way their computer models can reliably conclude that, nor do they have mechanisms to measure that small a change over a century. The USA produces less than 18% of the World's industrial carbon emissions. To hinge such HUGE regulations and costs on such a tenuous "science" is truly reckless.
For your letter or email to the President, your member of Congress, perhaps a letter to the editor, an op-ed, a call in to a talk show, here are some
Please take the USA out of the Paris Accord. It acceeds National sovereignty and is based on "junk science." There is no proof mankind has endangered the Word climate.
The Paris Accord seeks to further implement the Kyoto Protocol the USA specifically refused to ratify.
The Paris Accord opens the door for a World tax and World-wide redistribution of industrial technology, facilities, jobs and money, from countires that have succeeded to those who have not. It would further gut American jobs, income, technology, industrial worth, and wealth.
Even more than the huge costs of this International bureaucracy, are the costs of the Internationally imposed and demanded regulations upon American families, businesses, communities, and governments.
This might be the most anti-American proposal ever sanctioned. The USA must get OUT!
If President Trump thinks NATO countries have not been pulling their fair share of costs, wait until this socialist scheme goes Global!
To impose extensive reporting requirements to an unelected international bureaucracy would have very negative effects and costs on governments, business and jobs, and implies a World police state and/or taxes to impose penalties for not achieving artifical and unproven objectives.
Climate is God's perview, not governments. Flora takes in CO2 and gives off O2; Fauna gives off CO2 and takes in O2. It is a match made in Heaven.
There have been numerous natural "disasters" that have given off much more CO2 in one incident than all mankind has since Creation. One was a volvano eruption in Italy earlier this year.
Man's footprint is miniscule by comparison. If we eliminated 2/3rds of the population - as recommended by some radical "greens", it would have minimal effect.
The Paris accord seeks to limit Worldwide temperatures to no more than 1.5 degrees C. above what it was before the Industrial Age. There are problems even with the intent. No one knows for certain what Worldwide temperatures were several hundred years ago, nor that such temperatures would be ideal now.
The World population has multiplied several times since the beginning of the Industrial Age. Growth of food must keep pace. Appropriate increases in CO2 are necessary.
The USA never approved this accord as the Treaty it claims to be, which requires the approval of 2/3rds vote of the US Senate. We are not legal partners to this audacious loss of sovereignty and the National Interest.
Think America FIRST, for a change!
Let's make America Great Again! NO to the Paris Accord!
According to alarmists, if the USA were to pull out of the Paris Accord the World Temperature might rise 0.3 degrees C in the next 83 years. Yawn!
The Paris Accord seeks to implement the Kyoto Protocol that was specifically rejected by the USA. The ultimate goal is control by the United Nations, of all land use, agriculture, industry, and population
Just think what might happen if the Nations who will not contribute to the UN, or appropriately to NATO, are given International legal authority to take even more
The plan is at least $100 Billion in US Dollars for the UN Climate Bureaucracy by 2020
And more from there!
What they really want is zero emissions."The agreement requires the world to wean
itself off of fossil fuels by the middle of the century," said Alden Meyer, the director of strategy and policy of the Union of Concerned Scientists. "We have to get to net zero of greenhouse gases by 2060 or so. That can be through a combination of reducing emissions and increasing uptake of carbon dioxide by forests and agriculture by natural syncs. There is no way to meet this goal without phasing out fossil fuels over that time."
If you eliminate all humans that would not be achieved. And if it were, the Planet would die. Flora needs fauna, and needs carbon emissions to survive..
++ Paris Climate Deal Would Kill 6 Million American Jobs -
I think it would be terrible for our country. We have the potential of losing 6 million jobs and it would cost $3 trillion. Really, I don't think President Obama had the right to do it. He did it by himself without the approval of Congress. One of the problems we have in government is we let one person have so much power that he could do something that could cost 6 million jobs and nobody gets to vote on it-I think that's outrageous. It kind of looks like a treaty. If it's a treaty, it should come to the Senate and be passed. But I think President Trump has the ability and he indicated during the campaign that he wanted to get rid of and get out of the Paris accord so we hope we will. We have introduced a resolution to send it to the president to encourage him to get out of the Paris accord.
Joe Verran - Remember that time Donald Trump was paid $500,000 to give a speech in Moscow?! Oh no, wait... that was BILL CLINTON.
Remember that time Trump failed to disclose Russian donors to his foundation before he served as Sec of State? Oh no, wait. that was HILLARY Clinton
Remember the time Trump was business partners with Russian govt? His company received $35M from Russia... oh no wait, that was JOHN PODESTA
Remember the time Trump scored $145M from shareholders of a uranium company that was sold to the Russians? Oh no, wait... that was HILLARY Clinton again.
Remember the time that President Trump gave $150 Billion to a terrorist state and a sworn enemy of the United States. Then later shipped pallets full of small denomination unmarked bills to the same terrorist state and sworn enemy Oh no, that was President Barrack Hussein Obama. (Am I allowed saying "Hussein" on this Facebook page? )
Remember when President Trump said it served justice to allow those under investigation to destroy evidence taking a hammer to cell phones and laptop hard drives, oh no wait, that was James Comey.
Remember that time President Trump destroyed subpoenaed evidence by Congress and the FBI, oh no wait, that was Hillary Clinton.
Remember that time Donald Trump approved the sale of 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russians?! Oh no, wait... that was HILLARY CLINTON.
With such a target-rich environment there, remind me again why we are still investigating President Trump? Especially after a year of CIA, FBI, NSA, 2 Congressional investigations that found not a whiff of evide
nce. Is something else going on besides "following the evidence "? - Author Unkown
Dave Agema - How crazy and wrong has our country become? An East Lansing farmer is no longer allowed to sell his produce at the farmers market because he made a post on his FB concerning his views on natural/traditional marriage. Freedom of speech is gone. Protection of aberrant behavior is espoused, but traditional beliefs are punished. There is no longer a free market of ideas becasue free speech has been squelched. This is drifting towards insanity.
This mans name is Steve Tennis. He needs our support. When agencies get so involved in pushing their agenda that they punish people for supporting what our country has stood for for over 240 years, we have a huge problem and that problem is with progressive liberals running the shop. Its time for the insanity to stop, but it won't until people get involved and voice their opinions while there is still time.
