"98% of mass murders since 1950 have been in gun free zones... 
Washington DC was the gun murder capitol of America  until 
they changed the law."   Larry Pratt,  Gun  Owners of  America 
at MiCPAC, Holt, Mi.   Watch  MiCPAC Afternoon session

"Why be involved in politics? We kick tires, test drive, research, make calls, try it on, sometimes go from store to store to save on their specials, but give half our money to governments and don't care what they do with it? It is a matter of self defense, stewardship, because eternal vigilence is the price of liberty." Norm Hughes

Mark Twain wrote:
"When in doubt, tell the truth."
"Always do right. That will gratify some of the people, and astonish the rest."
"Patriotism is supporting your country all the time 
and your government when it deserves it."
"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that 
you didn't do than by the ones you did do ...
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your
sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." (Thanks, Bill Federar, American Minute)

++ Democratic Party files suit alleging Russia, the Trump campaign , and WikiLeaks conspired to disrupt the 2016 election (Thanks Mike and Linda)   Link

The DNC has made a major faux pas when they filed their lawsuit claiming that there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia was a huge mistake. Because of that suit, Republicans can now depose Hillary Clinton, under oath, on tape, and without softball questions...The same can be said for Debbie Wasserman Schultz and several other DNC officials as well as any Democrat who claimed there was evidence of collusion. It's one thing to make those accusations on TV and an entirely different matter in a deposition and under oath.  Link

Brenda Parsons   -  GREAT NEWS!!.for the people of Hazel Park, Warren, Madison Heights..the people that bought the Race Track is AMAZON!!, it's going to be a distribution center..that's right, can you just image the jobs coming!!!..WOO-HOO!!..what a wonderful thing! Thank you President Trump...MAGA!

On Guns - They Agreed
They are essential to freedoms
Patrick Henry wrote "Let him candidly tell me, where and when did freedom exist when the sword and the purse were given up from the people? Unless a miracle in human affairs interposed, no nation ever retained its liberty after the loss of the sword and the purse ...  The great  object is, 
that every man be armed... Everyone who is able may have a gun." (Thanks, Bill)
Mahatma Gandhi wrote: "Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history 
will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest."

Islamic Sharia law forbids non-Muslims from possessing arms, swords or weapons of any kind.
"We are practicing Muslims. We are above the law of the land." 
Mustafa Carrol, CAIR, Texas, USA
Adolph Hitler
acted similarly with his Edict of March 18, 1938: "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjected people to carry arms; history  shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjected people to carry arms have prepared their own fall." 
German Firearm Act of 1937 stated: "Firearm licenses will not be granted to Jews.

++ Will violance against Trump end in Revolution?  'Insidiously and incrementally, we are in the process of normalizing violence against the elected president of the United States. If all this fails to delegitimize Trump, fails to destroy his health, or fails to lead to a 2018 midterm Democratic sweep and subsequent impeachment, expect even greater threats of violence. 
   The Resistance and rabid anti-Trumpers have lost confidence in the constitutional framework of elections, and they've flouted the tradition by which the opposition allows the in-power party to present its case to the court of public opinion................
   The danger to the country this time around is that the Left has so destroyed the old protocols of the opposition party that it will be hard to resurrect them  when progressives return to power.
   We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth.  The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary.'  More

More Michigan Information

++ Lansing politicians promised and owe us a tax cut.  At a time they allege we cannot in any way break the promises of past politicians to the bureaucracy, their cadillac pensions  and perks included, they have no problem screwing We The People taxpayers.           They rejected even a 0.2% tax cut. In 2007 our personal income taxes were raised by 11.5 percent,  from a rate of 3.9 percent to 4.35 percent. That increase came with a promise: The hike would be rolled back, starting in 2011. But Gov. Rick Snyder and the Legislature permitted  a cut of just one-tenth of one percentage point before stopping the rollback in its track. 
   A reduction of the state income tax rate to 3.9 percent should generate 15,000 new jobs after one year. As the benefits of the tax cut build, the total number of new jobs created  would rise to 18,400 through 2022....Reversing Michigan's tax hike is one way for us to attract more citizens than we have lost in past years. (Thanks, Michael).  Article

Duh, 18,400 new taxpayers would INCREASE government revenue. And the Governerd was an accountant? Reagan proved the Laffer Curve works. As taxes  decrease the taxpayers have more money to spend or invest, the economy booms putting more people to work; A smaller sliver of a bigger pie produces more tax money. Trump is  proving it again. Why is Michigan government so socialist? Lansing, LISTEN UP!
   As a bonus, the new opportunities that are born in Michigan may help reverse its years-long population losses.

++  Prevailing Wage Repeal; Legalize recreational MJ Ballot Issues -  the Board of State Canvassers (BSC) deadlocked on party lines on approving the prevailing wage repeal ballot initiative.  There are two Republicans and two Democrats on the Board.  The two Republicans went with the recommendation from the Secretary of State to place it on the ballot.  The two Dems didn't.  BIG PROBLEM!  And, all this while placing the liberal measure of placing recreational use of marijuana WAS placed on the ballot.  Read on....

++ MAGA Movement Finds Hillary's Deleted Emails, Court Orders Them RELEASED - Hillary Clinton's deleted emails will be released to the public in September 2018, in accordance with a court ruling pertaining to the contents of Clinton's "backup" email device.
   It turns out that fired FBI director James Comey had Hillary Clinton's definitive backup email device the entire election and never searched it.
"The documents are part of the accelerated schedule of production ordered by U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg, which requires the State Department to complete processing by September 28, 2018, the remaining documents of the 72,000 pages recovered by the FBI in its investigation into Hillary Clinton's illicit email server. These new classified and other emails appear to be among those that Clinton had attempted to delete or had otherwise failed to disclose."   More

++ FEC Records Indicate Hillary Campaign Illegally Laundered $84 Million - There was "extensive evidence in the Democrats' own FEC reports, when coupled with their own public  statements that demonstrated massive straw man contributions papered through the state parties, to the DNC, and then directly to Clinton's campaign-in clear violation of federal campaign-finance law."  (Thanks Tim)  More

++ NAFTA re-write is moving fast. President Donald Trump and his top officials have indicated that a new version of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is almost ready. A number of disagreements remain, but negotiators reportedly expect to have them worked out very soon. Senior U.S. administration officials are even said to be plotting wild schemes to ram the "modernized" NAFTA regime through Congress.      But opposition among Americans and their elected representatives is growing louder.
  In Canada, far-left Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government has been openly championing a "progressive" and "feminist" NAFTA revamp that would enshrine radical environmentalism, Big Labor cronyism, climate alarmism, UN Agenda 2030, sustainable development, gender ideology, and more all across North America.
   The Mexican government, which has swarms of negotiators in Washington working on NAFTA right now, also gave indications that an agreement was near...." Indeed, considering upcoming elections in Mexico could throw everything into disarray, that timeline is said to be crucial. (Thanks, Joel)  Link
   We are Praying President Trump holds up his campaign promises and put the USA first!

++ H.J.Res. 2: Proposing a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Fails to get 2/3rds, vote 233-184    H.J.Res. 2 amends the Constitution of the United States to require three-fifths of both legislative bodies to approve spending than exceeds government revenue, require three-fifths  of both legislative bodies to raise the limit on the debt, and require the President to submit a proposed budget to Congress in which total outlays do not exceed total receipts. 
   Congress may wave these requirements for any fiscal year the United States is engaged in military conflict that causes an imminent and serious military threat to national security
and is so declared by a joint resolution.

++ Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz Gets $540 Million of Your Tax Dollars, It's Spending $30 Million to Take Over Congress - No "nonprofit" organization should be allowed to rake in  hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars - and then turn around with a related PAC and indirectly use those dollars to impact the political process.    "You can't divide it up," attorney  Casey Mattox has said. "Planned Parenthood stands alone as a major recipient of taxpayer funding that is also a major participant in elections."
  Already, Planned Parenthood Votes is stocking its war chest for at least three fall targets: Michigan, Florida, and Nevada, where it thinks it can pick off pro-life Republicans....
  Planned Parenthood plans to drop another $30 million on direct mail, phone banks, and other canvassing operations across the country to target "infrequent voters." The goal?
  Populating Congress and governors' mansions with abortion allies who would help protect its multi-million dollar federal funding stream. (Thanks, Jim)  More

++ Michigan HB  is extraordinary over-reach with huge fees and fines, a destruction of personal and property rights. This is precisely the type of stifling regulation the MCU Property Rights Task Force exposed. Last month patriots rolled back the TOST regulations in Barry and Eaton Counties. They remain in about 8 other counties. TOST allowed/required county health departments to inspect every property prior to sale or transfer, where they could impose thousands of dollars in expenses as a condition of transfer. If the seller changed minds after seeing the costs, they imposed the changes and expenses anyway, at the threat of huge daily fines and/or confiscating the property. This and the wind farm boondoggles need to be exposed by another phase of MCU's Citizens Task Force.

++ Calley turns in Democrat petitions
- Michigan gubernatorial hopeful Lt. Gov. Brian Calley inadvertently turned in dozens of nominating petitions for other candidates in unrelated races as part of his bid to qualify for the
August primary ballot. The Portland Republican on Tuesday personally submitted thousands of petitions to the Secretary of State's office, but at least 47 sheets contained  signatures for GOP U.S. Senate candidate Sandy Pensler and two petitions were for U.S. House hopeful Nancy Skinner, a Democrat. News article
   Sloppy staff work, at a minimum. Personnel makes policies.

Communism - anti-God, anti-Freedom, murdered 100 Milion People!
Evolutionary influences are especially visible in Marxist legal theory. Because Marx rejected the God of Creation, he was deeply scornful of the doctrine of human sin, and convinced that the evolution of human nature would lead to its absolute perfection. Marx also believed that laws are always the product of human will and, more specifically, the arbitrary will of the ruling social class. He sought, therefore, to displace the ideal of the rule of law and create in its place his own secular utopia on earth. The result? In every communist regime around the world, the attempt to enforce the Marxist dream of equality of wealth has led to gross inequality of power and, to be sure, to governmental oppression and "deification" (not to mention equality of poverty  among the masses). Thus, in the twentieth century alone, Marxist-inspired governments killed at least 100 million people. Such a bloodbath is simply the by-product of a naturalistic world-view that deems the most powerful humans to be the ultimate arbiters of right a nd wrong.   More
