    In Tuesday’s special election in Michigan, Democrats won both House seats on the line, reclaiming control of the Michigan House. Both candidates who won, Mai Xiong of the 13th District and Peter Herzberg of the 25th District, were in areas that heavily favored Democrats. Democrats are now in control of both chambers of the state legislature as well as the office of the governor, giving them control of the entire state’s government. “I am incredibly humbled for the overwhelming support of the voters of the 13th House District, who have chosen me to represent our community as the next State...

  • 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...
  • HUGE! MI Legislators Vow To Take Case to US Supreme Court Before 2024 Election, After Biden-Appointed Judge Dismisses Suit Arguing Unconstitutional Changes To Election Laws Via Ballot Proposal Funded By George Soros

    Michigan legislators claim that the state government infringed on their constitutional rights when it used ballot initiatives to change election laws. Eleven Michigan Legislators have vowed to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court after U.S. District Court Judge Jane Beckering, a Biden-appointed judge, dismissed their federal lawsuit on April 11, citing a lack of standing. The lawmakers’ claim, filed Sept. 28, 2023, argues the 2018 and 2022 state constitutional amendments regulating time, place, and manner of federal elections are legally null and void because they usurped the legislators’ constitutionally protected rights. Plaintiffs include Republican Senators Jonathan Lindsey and Jim Runestad;...

    EXCLUSIVE: The Biden campaign said it does not want the votes of those caught on video chanting "Death to America" during a recent anti-Israel rally in the 2024 battleground state of Michigan. A Dearborn crowd was led in chants of "Death to America" and "Death to Israel" by Michigan-based activist Tarek Bazzi during last Friday’s International Al-Quds Day rally. When asked if the president was still courting those agitators, who typically lean Democrat, Biden campaign spokesperson Charles Lutvak replied, "No." Bazzi’s remarks were also denounced by the White House. "The White House condemns these abhorrent and antisemitic remarks in the...

    Representative Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) on Thursday refused to condemn “death to America” chants that featured prominently at a rally in the district she represents. Last week, at an anti-Israel demonstration in Dearborn, Michigan, local activist Tarek Bazzi led a crowd in chants of “death to America” and “death to Israel,” saying the Jewish state “does not deserve to exist” and celebrating former Iranian ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Fox Business reporter Hillary Vaughn approached Tlaib in the halls of the United States Capitol Complex and asked whether the Michigan congresswoman would condemn the chants. Rather than answer Vaughn’s question, Tlaib said...

    It was Al-Quds Day last Friday. To celebrate the occasion, protesters in Dearborn, Mich., chanted “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” while a speaker named Tarek Bazzi declared the United States — a place that’s afforded him the liberty to openly support rapists, murderers and terrorists — one of the “rottenest countries” on the planet. “It’s the entire system that has to go,” he explained to cheers of, what I assume, were American citizens. As commentator Seth Mandel noted on X, there’s Charlottesville every other day in America, and barely anyone on the left cares. Most progressives, let’s face...

    Ethan Crumbley’s parents were sentenced to between 10 and 15 years behind bars Tuesday for their son’s 2021 massacre that left four students dead — the first parents convicted in a US mass school shooting. James and Jennifer Crumbley were handed the prison time by Judge Cheryl Matthews in a Pontiac, Mich., courtroom after they were found guilty on involuntary manslaughter charges at separate trials in March and February, respectively. The duo are the first parents in the nation’s history to be convicted in relation to a school shooting carried out by their child. The parents faced prison for failing...

Bazzi’s comments were followed by crowds chanting "Death to America!" in the background.

    Anti-Israel protesters in Dearborn, Michigan, closed out Ramadan by chanting, “Death to America” and “Death to Israel,” during an International Al-Quds Day rally. Video of the protest went viral on social media Sunday, showing activists condemning both Israel and America in the harshest of terms. Activist Tarek Bazzi of the Hadi Institute said chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” were only logical. “Why are our protests on the International Day of Al-Quds, why are they so anti-America?” he asked. “Why don’t we just focus more on Israel and not talk so much about America?

    Old Joe Biden has stabbed Israel in the back in order to try to ensure that he carries Michigan in November, but at least some of the Muslims in the Great Lake State don’t exactly seem grateful. Friday was International Al-Quds Day, an orgy of global victimhood posturing and rage over Israel’s refusal to surrender to the Palestinian jihad, and in Dearborn, rallygoers observing the day demonstrated that if Biden actually cared about the wellbeing of the American people, he would have bigger things to think about in Michigan than the presidential election. Dearborn’s International Al-Quds Day rally was streamed...

Radical Muslim activist Tarek Bazzi spoke to Muslims in Dearborn on Al-Quds Day on Friday. Tarek Bazzi: We’ve been asked in the past, why are our protests on the international Day of Quds, why are they so anti-American? Why don’t we just focus more on Israel and not talk so much about America? Gaza has shown the entire world why these protests are so anti-American. Because it’s the United States government that provides the funds for all of...
