    Blunt Force Truth ^ | 06/29/20 | Shane Trejo
    20-year-old Lucas Gerhard, who faces up to 20 years in prison for posting a picture of his rifle on social media, was denied his motion to dismiss charges on June 11 in a Chippewa County court in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.Big League Politics broke the story earlier this year of how Gerhard was banned from continuing his studies at Lake Superior State University dorm and charged with making terroristic threats because he posted an image that triggered a far-left student on campus. Because the student was scared by a picture of a firearm with text making fun of liberal snowflakes, Gerhard is...

    Nearly half of all deaths from the coronavirus in the United States have occurred at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, according to new reports. The rate of cases to deaths from such facilities has been disproportionate: while only 11 percent of positive cases around 282,000 have occurred at nursing homes and long-term care facilities, about 43 percent of deaths or 54,000 deaths have come from the same, the New York Times reported. The Times cited its database for the numbers, arguing that some states and the federal government have not provided comprehensive data. The...

    President Trump has lost ground with his base of voter support, white Americans, in swing states while not increasing his support with Hispanic and black Americans, New York Times/Siena College polls show. The polls of six battleground states, released this week, come as racial tensions have swept the nation with the Black Lives Matter movement leading riots, protests, and the destruction of historical monuments in major cities. Conservative circles have speculated that voters may not be expressing their actual opinions to pollsters. Trumps administration has been laser-focused on messaging specifically to black Americans, with daily social media posts from the...

    Still in the midst of the most wretched tyranny ever imposed on an American state, attorney Katherine Henry has authored the Restore Freedom Initiative, which would amend the Michigan State Constitution in order to avoid a repeat performance by any of the states future governors. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) called the effort to clarify the separation of powers, foundations and functions of government to enhance government accessibility, transparency and accountability, irresponsible. In times of crisis there isnt time to debate. A strong leader needs to take action immediately. Fussing over whether laws are passed by the legislature or decreed by...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden did not sponsor or co-sponsor any of the six bills recognizing Juneteenth during his time in the U.S. Senate, though he is now attempting to champion the holiday. Juneteenth commemorates the day that slaves in Galveston, Texas, were informed on June 19, 1865 that they had been freed by President Abraham Lincoln in the Emancipation Proclamation more than two years before. A search of GovTrack records of congressional bills, which is a complete record of all legislation dating back to 1973 the year Biden entered the Senate finds that Biden neither...

    A Michigan movie theater company organized a Juneteenth Film Festival and the Democrat attorney general threatened to criminally prosecute the organizers. Emagine Entertainment announced it would hold the event at a Royal Oak theater to honor the work of black actors, screenwriters, and filmmakers, Fox 2 reported. But Attorney General Dana Nessel quickly intervened because it allegedly violated Gov. Gretchen Whitmers executive orders still shuttering portions of the Michigan economy.

    This clip has mega millions of views, 5 million on Snapchat and millions on Twitter from several accounts — A young black man was filmed beating the crap out of an older man inside the just re-opened Macy’s at the Genesee Valley Center mall in Flint, Michigan. This is Flint Township police, Michigan State Police-Flint post, and Genesee County sheriff’s police. The assault happened on on Monday or Tuesday. The camera caught the face of the perpetrator perfectly. In the video that was filmed by the black man’s friend — he sneaks up behind the man and smacks in...

    The Federalist ^ | June 18, 2020 | John Daniel Davidson
    By treating Black Lives Matters protests differently than other large gatherings, public officials and health experts have exposed themselves as hypocrites. We’re told a second wave of coronavirus infections is coming. As businesses open back up and states relax lockdown orders, the number of new cases is ticking up in a handful of states. We’ve heard warnings in recent days from the Centers for Disease Control and various public health experts and elected officials that a new series of lockdowns might be necessary.What these experts and officials don’t seem to realize is that Americans will never comply with their lockdown...

    We are unlikely to find more than one person out of a hundred, and this includes law enforcement professionals, who is O.K. with what Derek Chauvin (allegedly until proven guilty) did to George Floyd. President Trump just issued an executive order to address the abuses highlighted by Floyd's death, and rightly so. The House and Senate are both meanwhile considering legislation that goes beyond the executive order. We do not, however, need to associate with a group like Black Lives Matter to achieve reforms with which everybody, including police, agree. BLM is right to denounce the tiny minority of...

    Democrats Lou Correa and Gretchen Whitmer laud those linked to South Asian terror. Joe Kaufman, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, is Chairman of the Joe Kaufman Security Initiative and the 2014, 2016 and 2018 Republican Nominee for U.S. House of Representatives (Florida-CD23). The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) has a long history rooted in terror. However, recently the group has been giving out food, in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Can a few bags of fruits and vegetables remove ICNAs horrors of the past and threat to the present? Two lawmakers, US Congressman Lou...

    Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer are not sold on the polls that show former Vice President Joe Biden with a growing lead over President Donald Trump. The Democrats made their remarks at a Michigan Women for Biden event on Monday, the Detroit News reported. Some people say, Oh, look at the numbers,' Dingell said. I dont believe these numbers. Dingell said given the events of the past few months, a lot can unfold over the next few months leading up to Novembers election. The world is upside down and not one of us on this phone call...

    The Generalissimo gets poured out of court again. Much as Michigans aspiring banana republic dictator, Gretchen Whitmer, tries to ignore the constitution in her serial abuse of the citizenry, the courts just keep telling her no. On Tuesday, Frau Gretchen suffered not one, but two setbacks: Michigan Court of Claims Judge Christopher Murray ruled that the felony provisions included in her draconian shutdown orders are unconstitutional and thus unenforceable; and Shiawassee County Circuit Court Judge Matthew Stewart ruled that, due to a Supreme Court decision issued last Friday, Whitmer and fellow fascist Attorney General Dana Nessel must cease and...

    The language in a petition to recall Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for the signing of nine of her executive orders during the COVID-19 pandemic has been approved by the Michigan Board of State Canvassers. Albion resident Chad Baase, 39, was successful in his third attempt at coming up with clear and factual language to move forward with the recall petition process. He and his group -- the Committee to Recall Governor Gretchen Whitmer -- must come up with more than 1 million signatures from registered voters in 60 days or less to trigger a recall election...... .....The Board of State Canvassers...

    As Twitchy reported earlier, Mayor Bill de Blasio gave a speech earlier at a Brooklyn vigil for George Floyd at which he was booed. As at least one person noted, you cant hold a church service in New York City, even outdoors, but you can gather thousands for a Black Lives Matter vigil, apparently because, as de Blasio explained days before, 400 years of racism in America trumps opening your small business or going to church; theyre just not the same thing. Now we have that woman from Michigan, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, still lobbying hard for the Democratic VP slot,...

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmers (D) office building was attacked in downtown Lansing on Sunday, and so far, she has not responded to that, or the other destruction in the capital city. The George Romney Building named after Sen. Mitt Romneys (R-UT) father suffered damage after rioters broke several windows and sprayed graffiti on pillars.

    Nearly two-thirds of the 60 people arrested Friday night during riots in downtown Detroit over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis were from the citys predominantly white suburbs. Thirty-seven of those taken into custody were from places like Warren, Farmington Hills, West Bloomfield and even Grand Blanc, which is about 60 miles (96 kilometers) northwest of Detroit, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said Saturday....Although Detroit is about 80% black, many of those arrested were white.
  • Will anyone call them terrorists?

    Say, remember when protesters descended on Lansing, Michigan to protest Governor Whitmers draconian, capricious lockdown orders? They attacked nobody. They looted nothing. They set fire to not one single thing. And yet they were called terrorists. Failed Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused them of domestic terrorism for daring to show up to petition their government for a redress of grievances. Again, they attacked nobody, looted nothing, burned not one thing. But these Americans exercising their First Amendment right to peaceably assemble were domestic terrorists in the eyes of Hillary Clinton. To be fair, Clinton wasnt the only one accusing them...
