  • Hillary surrogate Jennifer Granholm gets election hilariously, breathlessly, disastrously, wrong

    So much for her Supreme Court nomination In addition to being a top flight Dating Game contestant, Jennifer Granholm has the distinction of being the worst Governor in the history of Michigan. When her gubernatorial tenure was up, she packed her backs and fled for California, where she embarked on a decade-long career of licking all the right boots at DNC headquarters. Over the last five years, she’s become something of a professional sycophant. First, she cozied up to the Obama campaign (delivering that insane 2012 convention speech) and then later she became a chief talking head for the Clinton...
  • Weak Sauce: Pro-Clinton Granholm Defends Clinton's Flip-Flop On Trade,

    The first day of the Democratic National Convention is over—and the Trans-Pacific Partnership was probably the major punching bag of the night. There is vicious opposition within the Democratic Party over this free trade agreement. An agreement that Hillary Clinton once called the gold standard for free trade deals. She has since walked back her praise. Yet, Donald Trump criticized free trade as well, and is actively trying to court Sanders supporters based on the issue of trade. The anti-TPP sentiment is stronger here than on any other issue that's been mentioned.— Philip Klein (@philipaklein) July 26, 2016 Sanders forced...
  • Maher: Obama’s Pulling His Numbers on Islam ‘Right Out of His A**,’ ‘It’s Not One Small Slice’

    HBO host Bill Maher argued that “it’s not one small slice” of Muslims who hold extremist beliefs, and President Obama’s claims to the contrary are pulled “right out of his a**” on Friday’s “Real Time.” Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm (D) said, “ISIS is a narrow, and far extreme sect of the wide band of the Muslim religion, the Islamic religion, to — and this gets back probably to your previous conversation, and the point you’ve been making a lot, I think, on this show, is, why not say ‘Islamic terrorism?’ However, we’ve got a huge number of moderate Muslims,...

    Yep, we’ll probably be seeing lots more of these kinds of defenses from Hillary Clinton’s supporters: Mia Farrow "Reminder: Hillary's emails were not marked classified at the time they were sent. She never emailed anything classified. #letsmoveon" Perhaps Mia Farrow and Jennifer Granholm should join together take their vast knowledge of the content of Hillary’s emails straight to the FBI.

    Can't imagine why you weren't watching. When fossil fuel-phobic Al Gore sold his “Current TV” network to Al Jazeera, we noted the oil-based irony and mourned the passing of our favorite primetime lineup. After all, Current had been home to crackpots like Keith Olbermann and Dating Game contestants like Jennifer Granholm for the better part of ten years. That kind of crazy is hard to come by and we knew that we wouldn’t see anything quite like Current again. MSNBC does it’s best to fill the void, but it’s just not the same. Anyway, Al Jazeera America premiered a little...

    Even though some say Hillary Clinton would benefit if you were to be the GOP nominee, for the good of the country I want you to get out of the race. Your lies and vitriolic rhetoric are causing irreparable damage to the nation. In "The Leadership Challenge," a best-selling tome on leadership by James Kouzes and Barry Posner, 89% of people across the globe identify honesty as the most important characteristic of a leader. It seems counterintuitive, then, that despite spewing lies every week and managing to offend people of every race, creed and color, you have still managed to...

    FULL TITLE: Fmr. Dem. Gov. Granholm, Who Vetoed Partial Birth Abortion Bans Twice, Caught Lying on Camera About Law Former Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D-MI) had a very liberal record during her tenure, twice vetoing a ban on partial birth abortions. A recent hidden camera investigation caught Granholm misrepresenting the true nature of Michigan’s abortion laws, saying that they were more restrictive than they actually are in what appears to be an effort to downplay the horrors of late term abortions. The video was taken by a citizen journalist who wishes to remain anonymous and has provided the video exclusively to...

    The union that exploited Michigan’s home-based caregivers for the best part of a decade has seen its revenue tumble since the scheme that enabled the exploitation ended. SEIU Healthcare Michigan reported $5,398,383 in dues and fees in 2014. That's just 48 percent of the $11,307,314 it reported for 2012, the last full year during which the union's dues skim was in place. The information was contained in a financial disclosure report the union submitted to the federal government 57 days after the March 31 deadline it is apparently required to meet. The disclosure finally took place shortly after Michigan Capitol...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 6/21/2015 | Dr. Michael Thom
    Six years ago, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm promised in a radio address that listeners should “get ready: the movies are coming to Michigan.” Each dollar spent on the state’s newly minted film tax credit program, the governor claimed, would “generate up to $3 in economic activity.” Since then, Michigan taxpayers have spent $500 million trying to lure Hollywood to the Great Lakes State. Unfortunately, they have little to show for it. A Senate Fiscal Agency report concluded that Michigan spent $37.5 and $100 million on tax credits in 2009 and 2010 to generate just $21.1 and $59.5 million, respectively,...

    Washington (CNN)Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley took a major shot at Hillary Clinton on Sunday, saying the country needs a "new perspective" and "new leadership" in the 2016 election. "Let's be honest here," O'Malley said. "The presidency of the United States is not some crown to be passed between two families." The Democrat's comments, in an appearance on ABC's "This Week," are another signal that he's likely to challenge Clinton in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary. He's focusing in recent weeks on issues like income inequality and wage stagnation -- which liberal darling Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has made her...

    A former governor on ABC’s “This Week” made a not-so-veiled threat Sunday to former Democratic Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley that he could lose a cabinet position in Hillary Clinton’s administration by running against her. Former Democratic Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who also serves as a Senior Advisor to Ready for Hillary PAC said, “She is comfortable enough to be able to withstand a primary.” Granholm added, “And Martin O’Malley, he’s a very nice guy, and I was thinking he might make a nice member of a President Clinton administration, so he better watch it.” “I think he and anybody else,...

    Before he was alleged to have become a spy for Saddam Hussein's regime, Muthanna Al-Hanooti's charity work and political activism provided him with access to the highest echelons of government. Newsletters collected by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, some published now for the first time, show Al-Hanooti photographed with dignitaries ranging from First Lady Hillary Clinton in 1996 and Vice President Al Gore along with significant members of Congress. That may explain why Iraqi intelligence agents had confidence that Al-Hanooti would be able to persuade Congress to lift economic sanctions against Iraq. A federal indictment unsealed Wednesday accuses him of...

    Since Canadian born Ted Cruz has emerged on the scene in Washington as a future presidential candidate for 2016, attention has turned to whether he is Constitutionally eligible for Article 2 Section 1, the presidential qualification clause. This is what we know. Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Many say that disqualifies him to be eligible for the presidency. Enter former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm. She was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I came across an interview she did with Fox News's Chris Wallace in February of 2010. During the interview Wallace brought up the fact that...

    In the Wayne-Westland Community Schools, high school math teachers are the lowest paid as a group and make on average almost $25,000 less a year than the physical education teachers. The high school science teachers make $11,000 less than the district’s gym teachers on average. The salaries are set by a six-year teacher’s contract Wayne-Westland agreed to in 2008 and runs through 2014. The salary schedule determines pay solely by years of experience and education background. On average, physical education teachers were the highest paid group and made $78,675 a year. Teacher gross salaries can also include pay for extracurricular...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 3/18/2013 | Bruce Walker
    As reported recently in Michigan Capitol Confidential, Michigan taxpayers shelled out a cool $40 million in tax credits to the House of Mouse for the perceived benefits of filming the movie "Oz: The Great and Powerful" in our state. As noted by several Mackinac Center analysts, there are reasons aplenty for opposing film subsidies given to any movie. Just what exactly did Michigan residents get for their government's extremely generous $40 million gift to Disney? Even if "Oz: The Great and Powerful" measured up to the aesthetics of MGM's 1939 classic "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" (it doesn't), it would...

    Al Jazeera is coming to America — courtesy of former Vice President Al Gore and entrepreneur Joel Hyatt. The Arab network, funded by Qatar, has just bought Current TV — the low rated liberal cable station Gore and Hyatt founded — for a reported $500 million. The deal gives the anti-Israeli Arab network access to 40 million homes in the United States. Beyond bringing anti-Israeli propaganda into these new American outlets, Al Jazeera has a long record as the chosen news outlet for Al Qaeda and other terrorist cells. It was through them that Osama bin Laden would regularly post...

    PONTIAC, Mich. — Even the great and powerful Oz could not save the film studio that was supposed to save this town. The studio, a state-of-the-art facility fit for Hollywood blockbusters, had risen from the ruins of a General Motors complex here. It was the brainchild of a small group of investors with big plans: the studio would attract prestigious filmmakers, and the movie productions would create jobs and pump money into the local economy. A glamorous sheen would rub off on this down-on-its-luck town. But in Pontiac, happy endings do not usually come Hollywood-style. The tale behind the studio,...
