    It is common for gun control zealots to bloviate about how the United States is such a violent country, and others such as Canada’s dictator in chief Justin Trudeau using the crime rate in the United States as justification to seize firearms from his citizenry. And yes, the United States is ranked third when it comes to our murder rate. Now, want to know a dirty little secret? If you remove the following cities—Chicago, Detroit, Washington, DC, St. Louis and New Orleans—from the equation, the land of the free and home of the brave slips all the way down to...

    San Francisco city officials unveiled a new self-cleaning toilet last week. Designed to reflect San Francisco values, the toilet stopped working within days of its inaugural flush. This latest dysfunction in the Democrat-run city casts doubt not only on the whether the designers followed through on their aim of coming up with something as "indestructible as possible," but also on the utility of the city building 24 toilets just like it. Touted by the San Francisco Chronicle as the "future of public toilets," a so-called self-cleaning "Amenipod" was recently installed at the edge of Embarcadero Plaza and opened to the...

    “Here We Go Again… Suspicious Ballots Arrive Way After Legal Deadline in Detroit,” Ben Wetmore reported on Wednesday, after a confusing election night. According to the Detroit Free Press, Michigan voters on Tuesday decided to enshrine reproductive rights, early voting and financial disclosures on behalf of certain elected officials into the state constitution. Voters in Oakland County came out to support transit. Meanwhile, incumbents Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Attorney General Dana Nessel won their respective races, according to the Associated Press’ unofficial results. U.S. Rep. Dan Kildee defeated Republican nominee Paul Junge in a contest...

    Multiple sources provided The Gateway Pundit with reports of suspicious activity at numerous locations in Detroit, Michigan prior to the 2022 midterm elections. Here is what we heard– Our sources have witnessed suspicious activities in Detroit for several days now. Over the weekend, concerned citizens, driving in two cars, followed a Penske rental truck from the Detroit Department of Elections to a non-descript, one-story warehouse in southwest Detroit. The truck ran at least one red light, possibly related to an attempt to shake the followers. Once there, the citizens initiated a round-the-clock vigil that, at press time, is still ongoing...
  • WATCH: Whitmer Bails on Interview When Questioned About Pandemic Record

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 11/07/2022 | Benjamin Wilson
    Citing a technical difficulty, Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer on Monday bailed on a live television interview immediately after the host asked a question about the Democrat's pandemic record. "Do you have any regrets," the Fox 2 Detroit anchor asked Whitmer, who in response stared blankly into the camera. The governor then asked someone off-camera if she botched the audio by moving her AirPod, to which the person replied, "It's okay." Whitmer, who frequently disobeyed her own COVID-19 rules, lied about the number of deaths in Michigan nursing homes after she required facilities to take patients who tested positive for coronavirus....

    Politics bites. A Michigan GOP county chairwoman has accused a rowdy Democratic protester of chomping her on the arm at a rally for Republican gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon — the latest act of mayhem as the midterm elections approach. “I’ve never been bit by an adult in my life, or anyone over 5,” Wayne County Republican Party chairwoman Cheryl Costantino told Detroit’s WXYZ News on Thursday, showing off bruising and teeth marks on her upper left arm. “I couldn’t even raise my arm, like, it was even uncomfortable just to drive,” Costantino said. The demonstrator, a special education teacher in...

    Former President Barack Obama dealt with a heckler in Michigan on Saturday while stumping for Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Obama — speaking in front of a packed house in Detroit — expressed despair at the ongoing radicalization of U.S. politics and warned that “more people are gonna get hurt” if tensions do not de-escalate. Obama was interrupted by a heckler who shouted out during a pause in the former president’s speech. The interrupter, a male, could not be understood from initial video. “Sir, this is what I’m saying,” Obama said to the heckler, exasperated. “We’ve got a process that we...

    The editorial board of the Detroit News, one of Michigan’s largest newspapers, weighed in Wednesday on the state’s gubernatorial race, announcing its endorsement of Republican Tudor Dixon over incumbent Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), whom the board criticized for having an “inclination toward authoritarianism.” Dixon, a conservative commentator and political outsider, is “informed, measured and focused on the right priorities,” the board stated, noting it was “reassured” following interviews with Dixon and her debate performance against Whitmer.

    The Daily Signal ^ | October 11, 2022 | Fred Lucas
    After the arrest last week of the CEO of an election software company amid alleged ties to China, at least two suburban counties outside the nation’s capital canceled contracts with the company, Konnech Inc. The moves by Virginia’s Fairfax and Prince William counties follow cancellations by Detroit and Los Angeles County, where the District Attorney’s Office has alleged that Michigan-based Konnech stole information about election officials and poll workers. Fairfax and Prince William canceled their contracts to use Konnech’s primary product, PollChief. “Effective this week, we have suspended using PollChief and are erasing any data contained on their server to...

    DETROIT, U.S. -- Thousands of fans of the Mustang, a storied American "muscle car," stampeded into downtown Detroit, invited by its manufacturer, Ford, to see the unveiling of the new, 2024 Mustang sports coupe. The "Mustang Stampede" was easily the highlight of what was a decidedly low-key North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) held in Detroit on Sept. 14-25. Pre-pandemic, the annual Motor City event was one of the world's most important auto shows. But, to listen to critics, it is now fighting for survival, with organizers struggling to avoid the fate faced by shows like those in Frankfurt, Geneva...
