  • 1967 Detroit Riots Begin (50th Anniversary Of Detroit Riots)

    07/23/2017 9:27:06 AM PDT · by Kid Shelleen · 41 replies
    The 1967 Detroit Riots were among the most violent and destructive riots in U.S. history. By the time the bloodshed, burning and looting ended after five days, 43 people were dead, 342 injured, nearly 1,400 buildings had been burned and some 7,000 National Guard and U.S. Army troops had been called into service. --SNIP-- “Our nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal. Reaction to last summer’s disorders has quickened the movement and deepened the division. Discrimination and segregation have long permeated much of American life; they now threaten the future of every American.”

    A woman has been found guilty of shooting her husband to death in a murder case witnessed by a parrot. Glenna Duram, 49, shot her husband Martin five times in front of their pet in 2015, before failing in a suicide attempt. The parrot, an African Grey named Bud, is alleged to have later repeated the words “Don’t shoot!” in the victim’s voice. Duram, of Sand Lake, Michigan, was found guilty of first-degree murder by a jury. She will be sentenced next month. The parrot was not involved in any court proceedings.

    A lawsuit filed in federal court on Monday alleges the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) violated the gun rights of foster parents. Caseworkers from MDHHS and a county judge told William Johnson of Ontonagon, Mich., that he had to choose between his Second Amendment rights and fostering his grandson, according to a complaint filed with the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan. The 54-year-old Johnson is a retired, disabled Marine with a Michigan Concealed Pistol License. He and his wife were asked by the state of Michigan to foster their grandson. According to...

    freedomoutpost.com ^ | July 17, 2017 | Tim Brown
    We've reported on the barbaric Islamic procedure known as female genital mutilation, specifically in Michigan. Now, Michigan has passed a law that will sentence those involved in female genital mutilation to prison for up to 15 years, including parents and anyone involved. Female genital mutilation is nothing like circumcision. It is a barbaric act committed against little girls who are a part of Islamic communities. The law was both written and passed following the widely circulated story of several girls in Minnesota and Michigan receiving the procedure from a doctor in Detroit. The central government claims that, according to their...
  • 412 Michigan Muslims Arrested In Fed’s ‘LARGEST BUST IN U.S. HISTORY’

    Full title : 412 Michigan Muslims Arrested In Fed’s ‘LARGEST BUST IN U.S. HISTORY’ After Uncovering Deadly Hidden Secret The state of Michigan is quickly turning into a Sharia swamp, thanks to the reckless immigration policies of Obama over the past 8 years. Not only are portions of Michigan being transformed into a “mini Baghdad,” but the state is also being overrun with rampant illegal activity, where the Muslim populace is constantly being busted in welfare fraud and disgusting mutilation practices on little girls. Now thanks to the hordes of Muslims taking over the state, Michigan can add another “accomplishment”...

    He’s a cowboy, an American Badass, rock star, and could add the title U.S. Senator to his list of accomplishments if Kid Rock has his way. Yes, that’s right, Kid Rock has officially announced he is running for U. S. Senate in Michigan. He won’t apologize for the confederate flag on his car, his politics, or support for his President Donald J. Trump – and with that attitude, he may be just the person to take incumbent Senator Debbie Stabenow down. He’s rugged, has a redneck flair about him, and is new to the political process, but so was President...

    U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is sounding the alarm with her Democratic base, warning a Senate run by Detroit bad boy Kid Rock could be the second coming of Donald Trump. The “Wasting Time” and “All Summer Long” rap rocker-turned-country singer tweeted on Wednesday that he’s running for U.S. Senate in Michigan. Although it’s been largely dismissed so far as a publicity stunt, Warren isn’t taking any chances with the longshot Republican. “I know a lot of people are thinking: this is some sort of joke, right?” Warren wrote in an email blast with the subject line “Senator Kid Rock (R-MI).”...

    Kalkaska’s village president’s continued refusal to apologize for his Facebook posts may trigger an attempt to remove him from office. A series of posts village President Jeff Sieting shared on his personal Facebook page — including one that appeared to call for the killing of Muslims — caught Cindy Anderson’s eye several weeks ago. She and others fruitlessly sought Sieting’s apology at a June 26 village meeting. Anderson, a real estate broker who owns land in the county and grew up near Kalkaska, returned for Monday’s village council meeting and asked Sieting if he thinks he should apologize for the...

    For many Democrats, the multiple investigations into Russia's influence on the 2016 presidential election seem front and center on their minds, if not daily, pretty close. But not everyone feels that way. Lindsay Maizland of Vox News in D.C., saw that firsthand recently when she returned to her hometown of Linden, a rural little town between Flint and Detroit, and interviewed people there and in the neighboring community of Argentine Township. She reports: Nearly every single person I spoke with said the same thing: The media just needs to leave Trump alone, and the Russia investigation is a distraction. “I'm...

Jamie Raskin (Md.) has introduced a bill that would create a congressional oversight commission that could declare the president incapacitated, leading to his removal from office under the Constitution's 25th Amendment.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), the former chair of the Democratic National Committee, is also co-sponsoring the legislation. The support from top Democrats for the bill comes despite House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and other Democratic leaders telling...

A Taliban spokesmen recently said: “Our fight is Jihad and an obligatory worship. And every obligatory act of worship has 70 times more reward in Ramadan.” Not just the Taliban believe that....

    The FBI is investigating as an "act of terrorism" a knife attack on a Michigan airport police officer Wednesday by a man yelling "Allahu Akbar." The stabbing at Bishop International Airport, in the city of Flint, comes amid a wave of jihadist-inspired attacks in Europe, most recently a foiled bomb assault at a train station in Belgium. US officials identified the suspected assailant, who is in custody and cooperating with investigators, as a 49-year-old Canadian resident from Quebec named Amor Ftouhi. "We're investigating this incident today as an act of terrorism," FBI special agent David Gelios told a news conference,...
