    With all the nonsense going on in New York with the son of Mario and big brother of Fredo in regards to his administration hiding nursing home death totals, you just knew that questions were going to be asked in other states also. Well, here in the State of Michigan, one Michiganian ( Fact Check: Hey Michigan, You Are NOT a Michigander.) is asking how our Governor has handled this. Enter, Charlie LeDuff. LeDuff is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and currently, the host of the No Bullshit News Hour heard over on the Red Shovel Network here in the Detroit...

    Detroit - As the Texas power grid shudders in part under renewable power, the auto industry is also facing an uncertain transition to green energy. General Motors dropped a bombshell last month that it will build only electric vehicles by 2035. The commitment comes as the Biden administration stocks up on climate activists to?transform the economy to fight global warming.The administration is in line with governments from Europe to China that have declared EVs the future and - for the first time - are mandating which powertrains automakers must use.But as GM and other automakers spend billions to bring electrics...

    This seems like a big deal, doesn’t it? – If we had a functioning news media based on real standards of journalism in this country, this would not be news at all, since President Trump told us weeks ago that he had offered to call in National Guard troops to help Capitol Police control the Capitol grounds on January 6, but was turned down by Nancy Pelosi. The entirety of the corrupt national news media ignored Trump for the simple fact that statement did not conform to their preferred narrative that the Capitol riot was in fact an attempted insurrection...

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) has packed her “Council on Climate Solutions” with campaign donors and a major utility lobbyist and dark money group executive that boosted her 2018 campaign, a review of campaign finance records revealed. Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-182 last September to create the board, which advises the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy. “The science is clear, and message urgent: the earth’s climate is now changing faster than at any point in the history of modern civilization, and human activities are largely responsible for this change,” the order said.

Jamie Raskin (D-MD) tried to argue that years of Trump rallies were incitement to violence.National Review reporter John McCormack reported several Republican Senators left the chamber during part of Raskin’s presentation, and missed the subsequent argument of Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), who argued that Trump was a future danger.Inside the Senate chamber:Trump’s 2016 rivals Rubio, Cruz, and Graham watched intently as video documented Trump’s 2015-2020 remarks making light of or justifying political violence.Graham, Rubio, and Cruz then left...

    An Ingham County judge dismissed charges on Monday against several hair stylists who cut hair as a protest on the steps of the Michigan Capitol in May. Several haircutters and barbers participated in “Operation Haircut,” which was organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition. At least six stylists were ticketed for “disorderly conduct” by the Michigan State Police, which carried a $1,000 fine. The executive order issued by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) used as the basis for the infractions was later ruled unconstitutional.

    The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office announced Monday it is dismissing some 1,700 tickets for violations related to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s pandemic-related executive orders that were later ruled unconstitutional. Prosecutor Kym Worthy’s office said in a statement that as a result of a Michigan Supreme Court ruling, it has reviewed cases relating to both pending and adjudicated violations of Whitmer’s COVID-19 executive orders and determined there is no legal basis to move ahead with prosecuting them. “[The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office] will be dismissing all adjudicated cases and all pending cases,” Worthy’s office said in a statement, which indicated the dismissal...

    The Michigan Senate refused to confirm 13 individuals appointed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to various state boards and commissions on Wednesday. In a party-line vote, the Senate’s GOP majority defeated the nominations 19-14. On Jan. 13, Republican state Sen. Jim Stamas stated in a press release that Whitmer’s appointments would be rejected until the administration ended COVID lockdowns and permitted the state to reopen. “The governor is continuing punitive lockdowns and jeopardizing lives and livelihoods — while state government has largely been unaffected,” said Stamas, R-Midland. “People have suggested that the governor and her department heads not get paid until...

    Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer traveled to Washington, D.C., on Wednesday to attend President Joe Biden’s inauguration, despite having urged her own constituents to stay home amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “The country is ready for a leader who listens to medical experts to lead our country’s COVID-19 response and works on behalf of hardworking Americans,” Whitmer said in a press release before the inauguration, according to local Fox 2 Detroit. “I am honored to attend the inauguration of President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and ready to begin working closely with each of them to fight...

    Andrew Cuomo — Fredo the Elder — crawled out of the cave where he spends his days pulling wings off of flies and smelts participation trophies for his handling of the pandemic in his state to remind us that he is perhaps the worst governor in America. I only said “perhaps” because who knows what Gavin Newsom will do this week? ... he has led what might be the most botched vaccine rollout in the country. Originally he had set strict rules about who would have priority to receive the vaccine, and threatened to levy fines of up to $1...

    Bridge Michigan ^ | December 24, 2020 | Baruch Feigenbaum
    Michigan drivers and taxpayers have been complaining about road and highway conditions for years. But the solutions policymakers have recently proposed ranged from the politically impossible, like raising the gas tax 45 cents per gallon, to financially-risky short-term fixes like borrowing billions in bonds to pay for teacher pension contributions so that money could be shifted to funding for roads. But it seems like Michigan lawmakers may be warming up to a long-term, sustainable, users-pay solution to achieving better roads: tolling. Lansing's interest in tolling has gone back decades but this year the state Legislature and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's administration...

    The ongoing coronavirus lockdowns and restrictions ordered by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) have shuttered 32 percent of Michigan businesses at least temporarily this year. Michigan was second only to Puerto Rico in the United States for closures, a territory that was hit by a 2017 hurricane and relies heavily on tourism. Nationally, 19 percent of businesses were impacted by government-mandated lockdowns, the Center Square reported.

    Twitter/ScreenshotOne of those special things at this time of year is when kids get to meet with or get a call from Santa Claus. Now that conversation is usually about Santa asking if they’ve been good this year or what they want for Christmas. But this year, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer interfered in the normal tradition of childhood and used an imitation Santa Claus to tell little kids that they should follow her Wuhan coronavirus rules, saying Santa was “following the rules” and making sure that “he stayed safe and the elves stayed safe.” I don’t know about those poor...

    Life is too short to live it in fear of dying.More than eight months after “15 days to flatten the curve,” our so-called medical experts, politicos, and pundits are bidding us to avoid our family at all costs over the holidays, lest we die. This Thanksgiving week, family separation is the name of the game, with governors and local authorities implementing onerous restrictions to discourage people from leaving their homes.“If you are planning to spend Thanksgiving with people outside your household, we urge you to reconsider,” wrote a group of governors in the pages of the Washington Post.

    GRAND RAPIDS, MI—According to anonymous sources, one local Michigan family is choosing to rise up against tyranny and rebel against cultural norms by celebrating the holidays with friends and family, just like normal. In a leak to the press, Governor Whitmer's network of spies revealed that the Ritterson family is planning on having brothers, sisters, and grandparents over for a lovely Thanksgiving and Christmas, filling the home with warmth and joy. "Don't these murderous insurrectionists know that we're in the middle of a pandemic?" bellowed Governor Whitmer. "I will not have my authority questioned by this rebel scum!"
