  • Guess Which Michigan Politicians Passed Up Chance to Condemn ‘Death to America’ Chants

    New American Prophet ^ | April 14, 2024 | Robert Spencer
    For politicians, one would think it would have been an open-and-shut case, and in earlier, saner ages in our national life, it would have been. If a group of people in America get together and scream “Death to America,” officials ought to be lining up to condemn them, and there should be investigations and, if non-citizens are involved, deportations. We live, however, in Old Joe Biden’s America, in which the America-hating left is the dominant cultural force, and so some high-profile politicians have been notably wary about condemning calls for the destruction of the nation they have vowed to protect...

    Newcomer is the new word for illegal aliens. In Biden's America, there is a new word for everything. In Michigan, Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer has gone so far as to name a rent assistance program the Newcomer Rental Subsidy program. It offers landlords $500 for each illegal alien. The program "provides Refugees and other Newcomer population-eligible households with rental assistance up to $500 per month for up to 12 months, with eligibility based on immigration status and household income."Program applicants must have eligible immigration status, which includes refugees, asylum-seekers, special immigration visa holders, victims of human trafficking, Cubans, Haitians, Afghan...

The illegal from Mexico was charged with felony murder, open murder, carjacking, carrying a concealed weapon, and felony possession of a firearm for the March 22 incident. Ortiz-Vite stands accused of murdering Ruby Garcia and leaving her body beside the road on U.S. Highway 31.

    The newly disclosed video shows a dark SUV pulling up to the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in Washington, D.C., at 9:44 a.m. on Jan. 6, 2021. It sits for several minutes until a uniformed man with a bomb-sniffing dog enters from the right and steps up to the vehicle. The driver complies with his command, the dog sniffs inside and outside the car which is soon allowed to enter the parking garage. The man and his dog exit back to the right.This scene is unremarkable except for one detail: The uniformed man and his trained canine came within...

    Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press” that the Republican Party wanted a national abortion ban as part of their “war on women.” Newsom said, “They are not only restricting the rights of self-determination to bear a child for a young woman, and they’re determining their fate as it relates their future in life by saying they can’t even travel and they are modeled after a version that passed in Idaho is now being proposed in Tennessee and Oklahoma and Mississippi. The AG himself of Alabama wants to criminalize travel not just for children but for...

    President Biden knows full well Vice President Kamala Harris is “not up to the job” of commander-in-chief — and he preferred Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer as his running mate in 2020 before caving to public pressure, according to a new book out Tuesday. Biden chose Harris days before that year’s virtual Democratic National Convention after promising to select a woman and after pro-Harris lobbying from former President Barack Obama, veteran Washington journalist Charlie Spiering writes in his book “Amateur Hour: Kamala Harris in the White House.” While the 59-year-old Harris is just “a brain stroke away from the presidency,” her...

    Washington — Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer urged President Biden to personally speak out about the abortion issue more in an interview Saturday with "Face the Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan, suggesting more "blunt language" on the subject "would be helpful." Brennan noted that Mr. Biden has previously expressed reservations about abortion because of his Catholic faith, asking, "Does he need to talk about it more?" "I think it would be good if he did," Whitmer responded. The governor added, "I know one tenet of his belief system is that women and only women, with their families and healthcare professionals, are...

    LANSING – Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed a slate of new gun control bills into law on November 20 that confiscate firearms and ammunition from people in Michigan who have been convicted of both violent and non-violent misdemeanors under new legal definitions of “domestic violence misdemeanors” established in the new laws. These bills, passed by the democrat-controlled state house and senate, broadly expand the category of misdemeanors considered to be “domestic violence” to include many infractions that are clearly not violent, allow law enforcement to confiscate all firearms from anyone convicted of these misdemeanors, and prohibit anyone convicted of these misdemeanors...

    On November 28, Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer signed bills that will revamp electricity generation in the state. The new measures include a requirement for utilities to achieve a 100% clean energy standard by 2040. The measures also transfer authority over large-scale wind and solar projects from local governments to the state’s Public Service Commission. Whitmer emphasized that Michigan is well-equipped, both in terms of its workforce and the newly enacted legislation, to foster robust economic growth in the clean energy sector. The impact of the new laws will be felt in areas such as project locations, electricity sources, and power...

    Is Michigan’s bitter, lesbian AG Dana Nessel’s time running out? It’s possible, but it won’t be a walk in the park. Republicans, currently the minority, have just filed impeachment articles against Nessel. They’re accusing her of abusing her authority to target her enimies and shield the regime. So, will Michigan’s TDS-infected DA face impeachment? Time will tell, though it’s certainly an uphill battle. The Midwesterner: In what legislative insiders indicate is a longshot, eight Michigan House Republicans announced they’re seeking the impeachment of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel. Rep. James DeSana, R-Carlton, announced Thursday he and his colleagues had filed...

    A judge wants to know why two men convicted of secondary roles in a plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer have been transferred to federal prisons out of state. Paul Bellar and Joe Morrison are entitled to appeal their convictions following a trial on state charges in Jackson County in 2022. But their lawyers said it’s extremely hard to work with them hundreds of miles away. They said the distance interferes with a right to have access to Michigan courts. The transfer is "mind-boggling" and "appalling," said Michael Faraone, who represents Morrison. "Whatever we may say about this case,...

    It’s bad enough that the queer community has created a movement within their movement that they dare to label Christianity, a movement that not only seeks to normalize, but also to glorify sicj grotesque sex acts that would even have the assailants at Sodom and Gomorrah rolling over in their graves. From drag queen story time to trannies pushing abortion from the pulpits, those caught up in this movement would do well to remove the name of Christ from their lips altogether, as it will go better for them on the day of judgment. But to make matters worse, some...

    Less than 48 hours after polls closed and Democrats emerged from the midterm election poised to take control of every branch of state government, the Michigan Republican Party released a scathing memo blaming their electoral failures largely on Tudor Dixon, her campaign and former president Donald Trump. There’s a forest of pointing fingers emerging as Republicans reckon with a total loss of power at the state level, and the party provided their own suggestions looking to the top of the ticket. Paul Cordes, the party’s chief of staff, wrote Dixon’s weak performance as a gubernatorial candidate — Democratic Gov. Gretchen...

    Sworn FBI testimony in the trial of the men accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer has revealed that the FBI played such an integral role in hatching the alleged plot that they even trained the men to kidnap the Governor. An undercover FBI informant trained men to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer, according to the sworn testimony of FBI agent Henrick Impola, which came as part of the ongoing trial of three men who are accused, along with eleven others, of plotting to kidnap the Michigan Governor. The alleged plot to kidnap Whitmer was “busted” less than a...

    A consultant for Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D., Mich.) used a coded message in a "calculated" effort to "conceal" from the public record sensitive communications regarding the administration's response to a local water crisis in Michigan, according to a lawsuit. Michigan energy department consultant Andy Leavitt in September 2021 emailed a top adviser to Whitmer to express "some major red flags" with the administration's response to a lead water crisis in southwestern Michigan, which Leavitt compared to a similar crisis in Flint, Michigan. But Leavitt's initial message was not written in English—the consultant used letters in the Greek alphabet in place...

    Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh reportedly will be suspended by the program following self-imposed sanctions. Harbaugh had been facing a four-game suspension from the NCAA, but negotiations collapsed seemingly at the 11th hour. It now appears UM will attempt to cut off the NCAA Committee on Infractions before it can get involved. The program will suspend Harbaugh for all three non-conference games, according to multiple Monday afternoon reports. No official announcement has come from the university. If the reported suspension decision holds, Harbaugh will miss games against East Carolina, UNLV and Bowling Green, and the star coach will then return...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Michigan community leads fightback against Chinese takeover of US agriculture as Beijing-backed companies now own $2bn of American farmland, with more acreage than Bill Gates (Gotion)

    A rural community in Michigan has hailed a 'huge victory' after a Chinese-owned industrial firm backed out of buying local farmland. Residents of the idyllic Green Charter Township, around 50 miles east of Lake Michigan, say they were 'bullied' into accepting the takeover, but refused to do so. Gotion, a company that 'pledges allegiance' to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), did, however, complete the purchase of 260 acres of derelict industrial land in the township and 10 acres of disused farmland last week. It comes as data shows Chinese firms now own more than $2billion worth of US farmland, up...
