    ‘If the FBI is trying to run the clock out, the Muskegon/GBI Strategies voter fraud investigation will die,’ MFE’s chairperson said. Pressure is mounting for action concerning a 2020 incident in which Brianna Hawkins, an employee of GBI Strategies, a campaign services vendor, allegedly attempted to submit 12,500 new voter registration applications to the city clerk of Muskegon, Michigan, in the weeks leading up to the presidential election. Both Ms. Hawkins and GBI Strategies are named in an otherwise heavily redacted police report. Dozens of the applications were quickly found to contain erroneous names, addresses, and signatures that appeared to...

    Arab American organizations in Michigan are urging President Joe Biden to 'step down' as they push for Democratic voters in the state to cast their ballot for 'uncommitted' in the February 27th primary. Arab Americans have been furious with the president since the Israeli-Hamas war began in October. Biden has strongly backed Israel's counter strikes in the West Bank. In Gaza, the Health Ministry said the death toll had risen to 29,092 since the start of the war with around two-thirds of them women and children. Now that anger could have political consequences in a state that could decide which...

    The Office of Global Michigan is looking for resident volunteers to house migrants in their homes and help integrate them into US society. The Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Development says residents who participate must make a 90-day commitment. As part of the refugee support program, residents are asked to help with relocation needs due to the border crisis, and make a home in the state. Residents are asked to meet the person or family at the airport, helping find housing, enroll children in school, and help with finding employment for adults as part of the Welcome Corps.

    Michigan autoworkers are worried that President Joe Biden’s policies pushing for a transition to electric vehicles (EV) will cost their jobs, according to The New York Times. Some autoworkers represented by the United Auto Workers (UAW) union are not pleased with the president’s support of EVs due to the products needing less manpower to produce, which could eliminate tens of thousands of jobs not just in manufacturing, but also in supporting services like insurance and trucking, according to the NYT. Biden has made union support a key part of his campaign and presidential policy, but his push to have half...

    With early voting underway in Michigan’s presidential primary, a group is calling on Democrats to vote uncommitted instead of for President Joe Biden. “This is our protest vote at the ballot box,” Listen to Michigan campaign manager Layla Elabed said. Elabed said the groups want to send a strong message to Biden over his administration’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war. The group is pushing for a cease-fire. “We’re seeing a genocide unfold right in front of our eyes in 2024,” Elabed said. Elabed’s sister, Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, offered her support to voting uncommitted in a video posted on the...

    A Chinese green energy firm backed by Michigan's state government is tearing down trees to make way for a proposed electric vehicle (EV) battery plant designed to help the state meet its climate goals. Gotion Inc. - whose parent company is Hefei, China-based Gotion High-Tech - said it has initiated its tree-cutting process this week to make way for its controversial EV project in Mecosta County, Michigan, which has received support from Democrats and climate activists, but opposition from Republicans and national security experts. The firm said the process is legal and pushed back against concerns raised by locals. "It’s...

    A green nonprofit that is indirectly funded by a foreign billionaire is pressuring broadcasters to drop advertisements that criticize the Biden administration’s massive electric vehicle (EV) agenda. Climate Power wrote to numerous broadcasters this week demanding that they stop airing American Fuel and Petrochemicals Manufacturers (AFPM)-funded advertisements in swing state markets that rail against President Joe Biden’s plans to impose widespread EV adoption in the coming years. The charitable organization affiliated with Hansjorg Wyss, a Swiss health care mogul and billionaire philanthropist, donates millions of dollars to the Fund for a Better Future, which was the fiscal sponsor for Climate...

    Actor Selma Blair is facing backlash online after an Islamophobic Instagram comment from last week went viral. The comment was made on an Instagram video posted by Abraham Hamra one week ago, in which he calls out U.S. Representatives Rashida Tlaib, D-Mi., and Cori Bush, D-Mo., for being the only two members of Congress to vote against a measure that would prevent anyone who partook in the Oct. 7 terrorist attack on Israel from immigrating to the U.S. Hamra, whose Instagram bio refers to him as a speaker and Syrian Jewish refugee, calls Tlaib a "liar," "moron" and a "hateful...

    Michigan officials are calling upon state lawmakers to enact a mandatory state registry of all homeschooled children in Michigan. Since December 2023, Michigan state officials — including Attorney General Dana Nessel, the state House and Senate Education Committee chairs, the State Board of Education, and State Superintendent Michael Rice — have criticized homeschooling and called for stricter government regulation and oversight over homeschooled students and their parents. The motivation for these attacks was the arrest in December of two couples in Clinton County for “allegedly abusing and financially profiting from foster and adopted children.” However, instead of focusing on the...

    Senior officials in the Biden administration are being deployed “to Michigan on Thursday to meet with Arab-American and Muslim leaders” in the swing state as the war between Israel and the terrorist organization Hamas continues to splinter the left, according to the Associated Press. The visit also comes as President Joe Biden is vulnerable in the Wolverine State and trails former President Donald Trump in several Michigan polls published in recent months. The Associated Press was the first to report on Thursday’s impending meeting, citing three sources familiar with the plans. At the gathering, Biden aides will be met with...

    The headline is regarded as far worthier of condemnation than the fact that thousands in one city repeatedly celebrated the indiscriminate massacre and rape of men, women, and children.. Last Friday, The Wall Street Journal published an op-ed titled “Welcome to Dearborn, America’s Jihad Capital,” by Middle East expert Steven Stalinsky. While the usual corners of the political left, including President Biden himself, excoriated the article, no one has proven it to contain a single incorrect fact. Stalinsky outlined how, in the wake of the Oct. 7 terrorist attack in Israel, the Detroit suburb erupted in pro-Hamas protests. At these,...

    A conservative legal group identified grave markers for various deceased Michigan residents still listed on the state’s voter rolls, video footage provided to The Federalist shows. Published by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), the mini-documentary shines a light on the inclusion of long-deceased Michigan residents as active voters on the state’s voter registration lists. As shown in the video, some of these individuals have remained on the lists despite dying decades prior. One of these former residents is a woman named Mamie Jones, whose voter file listed a birth year of 1823 — 14 years before Michigan became a...

    A Michigan suburb with the largest Muslim population in the US has upped its security in fear of hate attacks after it was branded America's 'jihad capital.' The headline of a Wall Street Journal opinion piece published on Friday read 'Welcome to Dearborn, America's Jihad Capital' - a title given to the city by the publication because of its residents' pro-Palestine stances. The contentious article was written by Steven Stalinsky, who is a commentator on terrorism and has served as executive director of the Middle East Media Research Institute, based in Washington DC, since 1999.
