    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...

    Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib — who is definitely not an anti-Semite — is absolutely disgusted with the State of Israel’s refusal to vaccinate the Palestinians it regularly persecutes against COVID19. After all, Israel has become a global model in COVID19 vaccinations.Why does Israel hate the Palestinians so much? Why does Israel want Palestinians to die???Rep. @RashidaTlaib on Israel not vaccinating Palestinians: “It’s really important to understand that Israel is a racist state, in that they would deny Palestinians like my grandmother access to a vaccine, that they don’t believe she’s an equal human being who deserves to live.”— Tom...

    The fight in Michigan to expose what really happened in the November 2020 election is far from over.MI Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn BensonThe morning after the election, in a solidly red county in northern Michigan where Trump banners, flags, and yard signs can be found in almost every front yard, voters woke up to discover Joe Biden had walloped President Trump in the November 3rd general election. Upon further examination, it was discovered that 6,000 votes tabulated by Dominion Voting machines were flipped from Donald J. Trump to Joe Biden. The media called it a “glitch” and blamed it...

    Several Baraga County commissioners, plus the sheriff, prosecuting attorney, clerk, and treasurer of the Upper Peninsula county, have all signed a manifesto that places the state on notice that they will no longer enforce the state's COVID-19 mandates and restrictions. The declaration reads: “Since March 10, 2020, the People of the State of Michigan have endured restrictions on their freedom which have not been seen in North America since the days of King George III and the American Revolution. In the face of a worldwide pandemic our political leadership in Lansing has ignored the protections guaranteed to all America citizens...

    Former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and top officials in his administration have been indicted in the Flint water scandal that led to a deadly outbreak of Legionnaire’s disease, according to a report. Snyder, who was in office when the state’s decision to alter the city’s water supply in 2014 flooded largely minority neighborhoods with lead-tainted water, will be charged by the state attorney general, the Associated Press said. Sources close to the investigation told the wire service that Snyder’s former health department director, Nick Lyon, will be among those charged “soon” in the scandal. State prosecutors are mum on the...
  • Having Already Dropped for Years, US Auto Sales Plunged to 1970s Level in 2020

    Wolf Street ^ | 1-7-21 | Wolf Richter
    During the infamous year 2020, with all its distortions and shifts, automakers delivered 14.46 million new vehicles in the US, retail and fleet combined, down 15.4% from 2019, the largest year-over-year percentage decline since 2008 (-18%). Topping off years of declines, 2020 took auto sales back to levels first seen in the 1970s. Every recession has left a deep scar on auto sales. But over the past 20 years, it has taken many years to get back to the prior highs, only to then watch sales plunging again. The last high was in 2016, which had barely eked past the...

    Members of the Michigan legislature will continue their inquiry into reported irregularities in the 2020 election, a state lawmaker revealed this week, despite growing pressure to abandon further scrutiny of the 2020 presidential election results amid fallout from the recent Capitol riot. The riot at the U.S. Capitol came amid a pro-Trump "Stop the Steal" rally to protest the certification of Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 election. Trump himself spoke at the rally, urging participants to "show strength" and "be strong" in their protests of the certification. Though the president stressed that the protests should be done "peacefully and...

    Definitely didn't expect to be donning a smoke-inhalation hood and having to get down under some chairs because there were concerns that they might start shooting into the House chambers, getting evacuated from the House chambers and running around corridors to try to find a secure location, not knowing what was going on, who was where, and what was happening. So obviously it was chaotic on that front, and then just the fact that finding pipe bombs all over the place—I think there were several of those at the DNC, RNC, I think one on the Capitol grounds.

    Rep. Peter Meijer (R–Mich.), the Republican successor to the retiring Libertarian Justin Amash, has had quite the week. On Sunday, the 32-year-old Iraq/Afghanistan veteran and supermarket heir was sworn into office. On Tuesday, he joined a dozen GOP lawmakers, including such Amash-pals as Reps. Thomas Massie (R–Ky.) and Chip Roy (R–Texas), in objecting to Republican attempts to delay or oppose the certification of Joe Biden as president-elect. ("To unconstitutionally insert Congress into the center of the presidential election process — would amount to stealing power from the people and the states," they wrote.) And on Wednesday? "Definitely didn't expect to...

    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...

    (WWJ) After a somewhat slow start, state officials say Michigan speeding up vaccinations, and now ranks 11th in the nation for the number of first doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered. **SNIP** Meanwhile, slowing things down is many people's refusal to get their shots. Ingham County health officer Linda Vail says nearly a third of those who were eligible to get the vaccine so far have said no for a variety of reasons. "There's everything from, you know, people wanting to wait until after the holidays...over concerns that perhaps they might have a side effect, and they, you know, didn't want...

    2020 was a nightmare year for just about everyone, but the restaurant industry in particular took some pretty big hits during mandated lock-down orders and other impeding restrictions put into place across several states. In order to keep their doors open, restaurant owners have had to think on their feet, as well as out of the box to keep serving customers. That’s exactly what this Michigan restaurant owner has done, by starting an “On-ice meal delivery service,” which will deliver hot meals to ice fishermen directly to their shanties. Not a bad gig!

    Noisy Room ^ | January 4, 2020 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) is one of those people who thinks they are the smartest person in the room, which is usually true in their case until someone else enters. As our Constitutional Republic disintegrates under the weight of a corrupted electoral process, he would split constitutional hairs to allow others, including SCOTUS of the empty-robed Chief Justice John Roberts, to shred and ignore the U.S. and state constitutions, to steal the 2020 presidential election from Donald J. Trump in the biggest crime spree in history. Sen. Sasse is an ignorant coward, the Sgt. Shultz of the Senate, who sees,...

    It’s easy to see why the American Left loved Sami al-Arian. Leftists hate Israel, too. Longtime FrontPage readers will remember Sami Al-Arian, the former University of South Florida professor who for years was a darling of the Leftist intelligentsia. IPT News reported Monday that he has resurfaced, but that the stalwart old Jew-hater hasn’t changed: while he has reined in his rhetoric a bit and speaks in a more civilized manner, he is still calling for Israel’s destruction, which would result in the murder of millions of Jews. Back in 1991, during a speech in Chicago, al-Arian screamed: “The Quran...
