    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) used Wednesday’s State of the State address to propose the same gun controls now failing to stop high profile shootings in California. Moreover, she made this proposal at a time in which California witnessed three high profile shootings in a three day time-frame. FOX 17 reported that Whitmer called for universal background checks, a red flag law, and safe storage requirements for firearms. California adopted universal background checks in the 1990s and Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed extreme risk protection order legislation (red flag legislation) into law shortly after the May 23, 2014, attack that...

    TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A police K-9 in Michigan recently had himself a “ruff” day after he was accused of stealing his owner’s lunch. The Wyandotte Police Department shared a mugshot of K-9 Ice, who was accused of eating an officer’s half-eaten lunch in the breakroom during a call to assist with an emergency. When the officer returned to the breakroom, they found Ice “leisurely strolling out of the room licking his chops,” the department said in a social media post.... ...“Dozens of attorneys have offered to defend Ofc. Ice ‘pro-bone-o!'” the department said. “Plus the overall public just doesn’t...

    The U.S. government claims it foiled the Wolverine Watchmen militia’s conspiracy to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer thanks to Army veteran Dan Chappel, an FBI informant who purportedly prompted the bureau’s investigation when he notified law enforcement about the Watchmen’s violent online rhetoric in March 2020. However, Headline USA has learned that another key FBI informant involved in the Whitmer kidnap sting operation, Stephen Robeson, was embedded in the midwestern militia movement since at least 2019. Moreover, Robeson apparently had a relationship with one of the alleged plotters dating back to January 2020—months before Chappel purportedly discovered the Watchmen and...

    Social media users were shocked and outraged over a recent anti-Israel rally put on by pro-Palestinian protestors at the University of Michigan this week. Clips of the protest depicted marchers, chanting “Intifada, Intifada! Long live the Intifada” a call to violent overthrow of the Jewish state inspired by Palestinian riots and rebellions against Israel in the late 80s, early 90s, and early 2000s. “There is only one solution!” a female marcher was seen chanting, as the crowd behind her responded, “Intifada! Revolution! Marchers, seen walking around the Ann Arbor campus screaming into bullhorns and waving Palestinian flags, were also heard...

    A judge on Wednesday ordered a Detroit museum to hold onto an 1888 painting by Vincent van Gogh in response to a lawsuit by its owner, who claims it has been missing for nearly six years. The painting, titled “The Novel Reader” or “The Reading Lady,” is part of a rare van Gogh exhibit, which ends Jan. 22 at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Brokerarte Capital Partners LLC and its sole proprietor, Gustavo Soter of Brazil, acquired the painting in 2017 for $3.7 million, but a “third party” took possession of the art, according to the lawsuit. “Plaintiff has not...

    DETROIT (AP) — The Michigan attorney general said Friday there’s “clear evidence” to pursue charges against pro-Donald Trump Republicans who claimed they were the state’s presidential electors in 2020, despite Democrat Joe Biden’s 154,000-vote victory. Dana Nessel referred the matter to federal prosecutors last year, but no public action has been taken. A year later, she said it’s time for state authorities to step in. “Let’s be fair about what this was: It was an effort to overturn a lawful election,” Nessel, a Democrat, said. “That type of activity can’t go without any consequences. ... There are laws that specifically...

    If Jim Harbaugh is indeed staying with Michigan football for 2023, per his statement on Thursday afternoon, he’ll apparently have to deal with a Level I violation of NCAA regulations. The Detroit Free Press has confirmed that Michigan is expected to receive an official notice of allegations from the NCAA soon, charging the program with four Level II violations — those deemed “more than a minimal but less than a substantial or extensive recruiting, competitive or other advantage” according to a description adopted in 2019 — and Harbaugh himself with a Level I violation — a “severe breach of conduct”...

    Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), the chairwoman of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee and a close ally of Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), announced Thursday she is not running for reelection in 2024. The announcement is a blow to Democrats’ hopes of keeping their Senate majority in 2025 as they face a tough Senate map this cycle. “Inspired by a new generation of leaders, I have decided to pass the torch in the U.S. Senate.

    Former Michigan Rep. Justin Amash is offering to serve as Speaker of the House in the event that Republicans and Democrats can not elect a sitting member to lead the lower chamber. “I’m here because I think this process is really uncertain where it goes. And I think I provide a good alternative to a lot of the options being discussed,” Amash told reporters at the Capitol. “I’m just here at this point because this is interesting, this is exciting in many ways. I think it’s a positive thing for representative government that we have a disagreement on the floor.”...

  • Brutal Christmas storm: Is it climate change — or just weather?

    12/24/2022 10:15:41 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 65 replies
    Many Americans are facing brutal cold this Christmas Eve. Freezing temperatures are plunging into Florida and Texas. Single-digit lows in the Plains and Great Lakes, and blizzard conditions are wrecking travel plans, while the same “bomb cyclone” is driving coastal flooding in the Northeast. Is climate change playing a role here? Weird weather and wild extremes have been the calling cards of a changing climate, and it’s almost reflexive to question how much influence the warming world has in this last angry burst of 2022. Recent advances in the science of weather attribution can offer quick insight — and believe...

    Forty-one House Democrats filed a bill on Thursday to bar former President Donald Trump from running for president in 2024, citing section 3 of the 14th Amendment. “Donald Trump very clearly engaged in an insurrection on January 6, 2021 with the intention of overturning the lawful and fair results of the 2020 election. You don’t get to lead a government you tried to destroy,” Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) wrote in a press release: Even Mitch McConnell admits that Trump bears responsibility, saying on the Senate floor that ‘[t]here’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for...

    Detroit’s school board has voted to remove Dr. Ben Carson’s name from a district school, citing Carson’s involvement with the Trump administration. Benjamin Carson High School of Medicine and Science will be renamed after a poll that revealed 80% of the 1,500 people polled agreed the name should be changed. Dr. Carson told The National Desk he is not surprised by the move. “Cancel culture is alive and well. It’s infiltrating. Political correctness, wokeness, cancel culture, this is going to destroy us as a nation if we don’t get a grip on it.” Dr. Carson grew up in a Detroit...
