  • DEMS LIE: Pro-Life, Not Pro-Abort, Orgs Need Protection from Escalating Violence

    Pro Deo et Libertate on Substack ^ | June 22, 2022 | Catherine Salgado
    As of June 14, 23 pro-life organizations had been firebombed or otherwise vandalized. Since then, “a prominent abortion activist group called ‘Jane’s Revenge’ promised more attacks on pro-life centers and affirming establishments,” and they apparently made good (or bad) their promise as vandals violently attacked a Michigan pregnancy center. But woke NY Gov. Kathy Hochul lived up to the proud Democrat tradition of protecting the victimizers while calling them victims, by giving $10 million to abortion centers to protect them (presumably against pro-lifers). Except it was a New York crisis pregnancy center, not an abortion clinic, that was firebombed. Pro-abortion...
  • To Promote Public Safety, Michigan Authorizes Cops To Rob Travelers at Airports

    Graham Filler, a state legislator in Michigan, describes two recently enacted civil forfeiture bills as a "reform" that closed a dangerous "loophole." In reality, the new laws open a dangerous loophole by authorizing forfeiture of cash carried by travelers at Michigan airports without a criminal conviction. That change represents a substantial reversal of reforms that Michigan enacted in response to complaints about a system that allows police to seize and confiscate property based on little more than a bare allegation that it is somehow connected to criminal activity. "Traveling with cash is not a crime," notes Institute for Justice senior...

    Wood Grand Rapids ^ | 9/30/2022 | Byron Tollefson - Saturday
    Many small businesses continue to struggle and now a growing number of pizza shops in the Grand Rapids area are closing. Just over a year after Rico Nelson took over Franco’s Pizzeria on Alpine Avenue in Walker, he had to shut the store down. He’s far from the only one. "Business usually takes a while to get your niche and get it figured out," Nelson said. "But it’s just so hard with the uncertainty of the future right now, you know?" It’s the perfect storm facing small businesses right now: employee shortages, rising food and gas prices and supply chain...

    The 22-year-old suspect who recorded himself repeatedly striking a 75-year-old vet in the head will not face criminal charges in connection with the attack. What are the details? Authorities say Jadon Hayden pummeled Norman Bledsoe while the two shared a room at the Westwood Nursing Center in Detroit, Michigan, in 2020. Hayden also reportedly recorded the attack. According to a report from WXYZ-TV, Hayden — who is said to have diagnoses of both autism and schizophrenia — pummeled Bledsoe, beating him until he bled from his head. In the graphic video, Hayden said, "See this b**** a** n**** here? Get...

    With the release of 2,000 Mules, patriots around the country are seeing the truth about the obvious voter fraud that was caught on video at designated ballot boxes. The Mules are those who were dropping fraudulent ballots into drop boxes. We know about the ones that were recorded and who were sloppy enough to keep their phones with them as they committed systemic voter fraud.What is overlooked by many, though, is that there is much more voter fraud evidence from the 2020 election emerging. Patriot Joe Brandis, who has been investigating Michigan voter fraud since the 2020 election with Michigan...

    Two of Michigan’s top Democrats are neck-and-neck with Republican opponents in their races for reelection this year, according to a new GOP internal polling memo. The poll was conducted by ARW Strategies from April 18 to 20, and the results were released Thursday by Republican Matthew DePerno, who is hoping to unseat Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) in November.

    The highest inflation prints in four decades have forced some Americans to flood food banks and pantries (again). WSJ reports that Forgotten Harvest in Detroit has experienced a dramatic increase in demand. Since December, demand at the food bank has increased from 25% to 45%. In March alone, when energy and food prices soared, demand jumped 30% over the prior month. Christopher Ivey, a spokesman for the Detroit food bank, said, “the need is growing quickly, as gas prices are continuing to rise.”  “As you know, there are shortages in the grocery store and the costs of the commodity...

    President Joe Biden should do an ad for his energy policies ala Game of Thrones, “Bundle up! Winter is Coming!” Since Biden was installed as President in January 2021, natural gas futures prices are UP 216% and heating oil is up 199%. The average price of home electricity has SOARED under Biden, as has the prices of many things. Fortunately for Biden and Congress, they live in well-heated (and air-conditioned) digs in the DC area and are not exposed to the damage done by Biden’s executive orders on energy.

    It appears Jayson Chambers, one of the key FBI Agents involved in the entrapment effort, did just that. Why? n 2017, Steven Crowder, a conservative activist and host of a popular YouTube channel, infiltrated Antifa with his producer. Weeks before a speaking engagement by Ben Shapiro at the University of Utah—an event Antifa planned to disrupt violently—Crowder worked his way into the group through the use of burner phones and encrypted chats. Crowder secretly recorded discussions between Antifa thugs promising to use “plain clothes and hard tactics” to shut down Shapiro’s speech on September 28, 2017. This included distributing weapons...

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A federal prosecutor withdrew Tuesday from the case of a plot to kidnap Michigan Gov.

He's not required to give a reason. ... Roth was one of two prosecutors at the high-profile trial of Adam Fox, Barry Croft Jr., Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta. He gave the opening statement, saying the men wanted to kidnap Whitmer and create a “war zone here in Michigan,”...

    The Democratic governor has called on the Republican-led state legislature to repeal the abortion ban.After the Michigan governor sued Thursday asking a court to find that the state constitution includes the right to abortion, the state’s Catholic conference urged that the state’s laws, and judicial precedence, be respected. “It is unfortunate that the judicial branch is being used to try to invalidate a long-standing policy approved by elected representatives and left untouched by the legislature for nearly a century since,” Rebecca Mastee, a policy advocate at the Michigan Catholic Conference, said April 7. “Let us also recall that the people...

    In a shocking twist, a gaggle of white men accused of conspiring to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in the weeks before the 2020 presidential election dodged convictions on Friday. After five days of deliberations, a Michigan jury acquitted Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta of several charges, including conspiracy, for what prosecutors said was a depraved scheme born out of anti-government anger at the Democratic leader’s COVID-19 restrictions. The jury, however, could not come to a consensus on the other two defendants and alleged ring leaders of the plot—Adam Fox and Barry Croft—and thus their cases may end in a...

    The move comes as Democratic governors across the nation brace for decisions about abortion access to be left to states for the first time in more than 50 years, a potentially critical issue that is likely to resonate in the midterm elections. Whitmer is preemptively suing 13 elected county prosecutors in Michigan who have an abortion clinic within their jurisdiction, a move intended to circumvent a 1931 Michigan abortion law that would ban abortion even in cases of rape or incest. The law, which is still on the books, is currently not in effect because the federal 1973 ruling in...

    ANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Friday vetoed Republicans' proposal to permanently cut the state income tax, make more seniors eligible for deductions and restore a child tax credit, saying it would reduce funding for basic government services. The veto, which was expected, may prompt negotiations between GOP legislative leaders and the Democratic governor, who has called for more targeted tax breaks for retirees and lower-wage workers....... While Michigan has a $7 billion budget surplus, her administration says it is largely one-time revenue that cannot be counted on in future years..... “This plan would have cut taxes for...

The school apologized for the email, and a second email was sent out which added the word “dismantling” in front of “anti-Semitism:” “Earlier today an e-mail was sent to our campus community outlining our commitment to the...

Yet historian JoEllen Vinyard says the “citizen militia” activists she got to know in the 1990s didn’t seem like the types who would abduct a governor or stage a coup. “I don’t think they were dangerous,” said Vinyard, an Eastern Michigan University professor emeritus and author of a book about far-right movements in the state. “They reminded me of the good old boys I knew growing up in Nebraska.” But as four men charged...

    Bloomberg News co-founder Matthew Winkler is twisting numbers again to try to make leftists look like economic wizards. This time, he went to bat for Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) who imposed tyrannical COVID-19 shutdown policies on her constituents. Winkler’s blog celebrating Whitmer Feb. 16 was headlined, “‘Woman in Michigan’ Governs the No. 1 Economy.” Winkler fawned, in part, about how Whitmer’s economic policies“outperformed the U.S. when Trump was in the White House and continues to do so 15 months after voters rejected his bid for a second term.” He claimed that “Among 37 states with a population greater than...
