For decades, government’s power, at every level, has increased exponentially to the point where the people are no longer sovereign. They are but hapless “victims” of a centralized government whose constitutional limits were breached beginning as far back as the Civil War. The people of America, thanks to the 14th Amendment, are now just “citizens UNDER THE JURISDICTION THEREOF of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” It was supposed to be that the United States and the State wherein we reside were under the JURISDICTION of WE THE PEOPLE, not the other way around.

Bill Schuette’s recent opinion asserting that the state’s Right to Farm Act preempts local government ordinances
On behalf of its more than 42,000 farm family members, Michigan Farm Bureau (MFB) applauds Attorney General (AG) Bill Schuette’s recent opinion asserting that the state’s Right to Farm Act preempts local government ordinances attempting to restrict farming activities.
As the largest state farm organization, MFB has been concerned with the alarming trend of local governments approving unnecessary and illegal ordinances regulating farming activities. Members and staff of the organization have being working to defend the integrity of the Right to Farm Act, including recent challenges in Leroy Township and Fenton Township. Continue reading
Here’s the transcript from the DOJ Press Release this morning. I copied & pasted so all errors are their errors as are the CAPS.
My opinion on this ..it’s SES CYA… the new video, “American SS Exposed”, that was released about the ‘unpackaging’ of their hidden reports they’re required by law to file spurred them into action for ‘Damage Control’. It is my thought this message is speaking about the Abel Danger & Field McConnell exposing the SES Treason. Their Report had numerous ‘traps’ set for anyone that tried to ‘unpackage’ the report. It is my thought, ONLY my thought this is the cyber-hacking they are speaking up and using Iran for cover.
I think they’re speaking to their own people and letting them know there won’t be an ‘investigation’ for their protection and conveniently the Iranian Hackers are in Iran.
They had to come up with HACKERS to pass blame for what they’ve been doing. Listen to the video below or use this LINK if you haven’t already listened to it then read this DOJ Press Release.
Remember the Russian Dossier FABRICATED to impeach President Trump. When you have total control over all law enforcement agencies at the highest level anything can be anything you want it to be. Especially nice how they say ‘innocent until proven guilty in America’ for the Iranians but railroaded Hammond’s, Bundy’s and others by fabrication and omission of evidence.
I’m glad I ‘captured’ the transcript because I just checked the ‘live feed’ link of DOJ Press Release and the transcript is no longer there, so it was only available during the live-feed.

Federal & State Law Enforcement Authorities Announce Formation of Special Unit to Fight Public Corruption LINK
Citizen Assistance Encouraged
Innovative Corruption “Button” Rolled Out
CHARLESTON, W.Va. — United States Attorney Mike Stuart and representatives from federal and state law enforcement announced today the formation of a Public Integrity Special Investigations Unit to investigate corrupt public officials, the misuse of public funds, campaign and election law violations and suspected criminal activity.
The Public Integrity Special Investigations Unit includes representatives from federal and state agencies including the Federal Bureau of Investigation; the United States Postal Inspection Service; the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation Division; the Inspector General’s Offices of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security; the West Virginia State Police; the West Virginia Commission on Special Investigations; and the West Virginia State Auditor’s Office. The West Virginia Secretary of State’s Office will assist in investigating campaign and election law violations.
“Maintaining public integrity is a tremendous priority for me and for the Southern District of West Virginia,” said U.S. Attorney Stuart. “Public corruption is a cancer on our system of government. If it’s not rooted out, the cancer grows. It causes the public to be cynical about the honesty of public officials and public institutions. There is an absolute burden on public officials and persons in a position of public authority to be honest brokers to protect the integrity of public service and the taxpayers’ wallets. Dirty politicians and dirty public officials must and will be held accountable for violations of the public trust,” Stuart continued. Continue reading
SHADOW GOVERNMENT IS COLLAPSING – VIDEO
This is a must listen video – it completely exposes the ‘Senior Executive Servie – SES’ Shadow Government, also called, ‘Deep State’ that has been usurping our REPUBLIC and destroying our Constitution since 1978.
If you remove the E from SES what do you have, that’s right, SS and didn’t the Nazi’s have an SS?
On December 15, 2015 the ‘community organizer’ BHO signed an Executive Order —Enhancing the Senior Executive Service
There approx. 9,000 to 10,000 SES people and 8,000 were appointed by BHO after he signed the E.O. Enhancing the SES another 33,000 were added before he left office.
The video: “Trump Drops Bomb on Sex Traffickers” (below) is only 8 mins and worth the listen. It discusses President Trumps EO and exposes a couple of well-known Child Traffickers.
Many people are unaware there is a wicked nefarious luciferian religion that does the unimaginable to humans and especially innocent children and even little babies and they MUST BE STOPPED. Street level pedophia’s are being removed now but those at the top of our GOVERNMENT need also to be removed and held accountable by indictments. Continue reading

12 BALLOT PROPOSALS BEING DEVELOPED
March 9, 2018
by Farm News Media
None of the proposals listed here have gone through all of the steps to gain ballot access.
Twelve potential ballot initiatives could be on the Nov. 6 Michigan election ballot, according to Matt Kapp, elections specialist with Michigan Farm Bureau.
For a proposal to make the ballot, he said, several steps need to be met, including: board of canvassers approving the petition form, signature collection, verification that the required number of valid signatures have been collected, surviving any legal challenges, etc.
None of the proposals listed here have gone through all of the steps to gain ballot access.MFB has not yet taken a position on these ballot issues; although based on current Farm Bureau policy, our likely position should be obvious, Kapp said.
The potential ballot initiatives are: Continue reading
Received this complaint about new Land Assessment:
Have you gotten this years assessment yet?
MY 5 A WENT UP $600.00 MY 40 A WENT UP $10,100.00. A LATE 70’S POLE BARN AND A 1986 MOBILE HOME AND NO OTHER IMPROVEMENTS SINCE. SO HOW COULD THIS GO UP THAT MUCH IN VALUE? Now so you know the tax payer is paying for the assessor and then they are paying for.their yearly traning, and the board of review which is a joke!!
I think this assessing should be 10 or 15 yrs not every year ????
The assessor has never seen the property. [end]
Below is the form you have to use to protest your new tentative tax assessment.to your local review board.
This form is issued under the authority of P.A. 206
1973 is when the EVIL was unleashed – when Roe vs Wade passed and infanticide by abortion was legalized in our country without outrage or protest. It’s a HIDDEN GENOCIDE taking place in our country with 58+ MILLION abortions since 1973. Hitler killed 20 million over a 12 year period and there is question to whether Stalin killed 20 or 60 Million over a 30 year period. It is time to stop this evil that is sacrificing our babies at the alter of Moloch. Please sign the petition and share wherever you can – Thank you
REPEAL ROE vs WADE – BAN ABORTIONS
Created by B.F. on February 25, 2018
Abortion has been legal since 1973. When it was legalized it was restricted to first 13 weeks. At this time we did not have the technology we now have so it was easy for people to be deceived into believing the baby was a ‘glob of cells’ and given the inhuman title of ‘fetus’.
Technology now without question proves and shows it is an infant baby in the womb that can smile, interact with mom’s movements, and feel pain.
Since 1973 abortion has advanced to murdering a baby at time of birth to harvest & sell their organs, it is used as birth control and gender selection.
Numerous birth control methods are available as well as adoption, no baby should be aborted. Wholesale slaughering of our most innocent must be stopped.
Sanctity of life needs to be restored if we hope to #MAGA [Make America Great Again]
This petition must reach 100K by March 27th to be addressed by the White House – Congress. It needs 150 before the link will be visible to all, so right now the only way it is seen is if you send a link directly to all your contacts. Please share this on all your social media platforms, by email, and word of mouth. We cannot protect our children if we don’t first protect our unborn. It is ludicrous and insane that so many cry about the ‘slaughtering of our babies’ referring to mass shootings but totally ignor or support the mass slaughter of our babies in this country. We must unite, stand, and ACT against this violence that has taken place since 1973. I witnessed the degradation of our society since we legalized the murdering of our babies. Please take a stand, now is the time to ACT – let your voice be heard –
Thank you – perhaps we can be ‘One Nation Under God’ again
Michigan House votes to make English official state language
By – Associated Press – Thursday, February 22, 2018
LANSING, Mich. — House lawmakers want to make English the official language of Michigan.
Republicans led the way in passing a bill Thursday that would require its use in public records. State departments and local governments still could publish documents in other languages.
Rep. Tom Barrett, a Republican from Potterville, says Michigan is a diverse state. But he says diversity with “no shared values” drives people into their “own corners.” He and other supporters say the bill will encourage assimilation. [emphasis mine and I agree]
Rep. Vanessa Guerra voted no. The Saginaw Democrat says the bill could isolate people whose English skills are limited. Another critic, Rep. David LaGrand of Grand Rapids, says it’s a “dark moment” for the country if diversity is not embraced.
URGENT: KLAYMAN NEEDS TO BE NAMED SPECIAL COUNSEL! SIGN THIS PETITION ASKING PRESIDENT TRUMP TO HAVE APPOINTED THE ONLY LAWYER EVER TO HAVE A COURT RULE THAT BILL CLINTON COMMITTED A CRIME! THE REPUBLIC HANGS IN THE BALANCE!
Larry Klayman is not partisan and WILL DRAIN THE SWAMP! 97% of the lawyers are Leftist and not going to drain themselves. If Larry Klayman is appointed Special Counsel he will have the power of the DOJ to follow through with INDICTMENTS of these criminals. All that are there play both sides of the fence when it is to their advantage. If President Trump is to get anything accomplished this Deep State needs to be ‘shut-down’. We will never have another chance such as this to actually reclaim our constitutional representative Republic than right now, but we must act now. Please sign this petition, I did. It’s not like they don’t already know everything about us already right? I refuse to live in fear of ‘Black helicopters’ landing in my yard, if it is to be, then lets get it on! I’m free & will not submit to tyranny. I’m an AMERICAN and I believe II Chron 7:14 “MY people” not non-believers but ‘believers’
SENATOR RAND PAUL RESPONSE TO FISA MEMO RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
February 2, 2018
Contact: Press@paul.senate.gov, 202-224-4343
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) issued the following statement after the U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released its memo on alleged abuses by the FBI and the Department of Justice:
“While I applaud the release of this memo, I also call for Congress to take immediate action to help prevent such behavior in the future. It is imperative it start by listening to Americans who have expressed outrage over its disregard for the Fourth Amendment and reexamining the powers it reauthorized right before we learned of the memo. Continuing to ignore the Constitution will only guarantee that others fall victim to government abusing its domestic surveillance powers.”
NUNES SECRET FISA MEMO RELEASED! NO REDACTIONS!
First two pages is laying the foundation for it – so six pages total – 4 pages actual memo. This memo is a summary of the actual document. The 99 page document I posted a few days ago was another summary of the original investigation that ended up being over a MILLION PAGES.
If you know someone living in CA it’d probably be good to given them this information. The AlIENS that are already there are going to have some competition. See how corrupt these Communist Global Democrats are? RINO’s are right there with them as well.
Maxine Waters tells United Bank that she needs their money to get elected but doesn’t want anyone to mention the 41,000 Somalian Refugees being re-located in LA until after the November elections bc it may hurt her chances of re-election.
The Michigan House has overwhelmingly approved tax cuts that would go further than addressing an unintended consequence of the federal tax overhaul.
Bills approved Thursday with bipartisan support would gradually raise Michigan’s personal tax exemption to $4,800 and create a $100 tax credit for residents age 62 and older.
Republican Gov. Rick Snyder favors keeping intact and slightly boosting the personal exemption to $4,500, but warns larger tax cuts would jeopardize his plan to boost road spending.
Republican Rep. Jim Tedder, a sponsor of one bill, says the economy and budget are in good shape, and it’s a “perfect time to deliver real tax relief.”
The Senate recently passed its own tax cuts. It remains to be seen if Snyder and Republicans who control the Legislature can cut a deal. Source LINK
Sen. Patrick Colbeck quoted Sir Winston Churchill:
”GENTLEMENT WE’VE RUN OUT OF MONEY SO ITS TIME TO THINK”
Sen Colbeck is running for Governor …we need to keep our eyes on him because he could be a good candidate. Something he quoted in this (please listen) is Michigan Congress states the people would SUPPORT a tax hike to improve the roads. If memory serves me the people of Michigan did NOT support the gas tax for roads and they still implemented it after a “NO” vote from the people. People we MUST get involved and perhaps even AUDIT the books to see where OUR FUNDS ARE ACTUALLY GOING. My Solution: CUT WASTE & the PEOPLE need to determine what constitutes waste, not them!
Sen. Chuck Schumer said Monday that Democrats and Republicans have reached a bipartisan deal to end the government shutdown until February 8th, by which time if a deal is not reached, the Senate will immediately look to DACA legislation.
Why it matters: Not everyone is happy with the agreement, however, and numerous senators are still voting “no.” Continue reading

“It may not be amiss…to remind you of the good old rule, that on the question of fact, it is the province of the jury, and on the question of law, it is the province of the court to decide.

Brailsford, 3 Dall. 1, 4 (1794), 1 L.Ed. 483. “…for as, on the one hand, it is presumed that juries are the best judges of facts; it is, on the other hand, presumable, that the court are the best judges of law. But still, both objects are lawfully within your power of decision.”

Statement by the Press Secretary on the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity
Issued on: January 3, 2018
Despite substantial evidence of voter fraud, many states have refused to provide the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity with basic information relevant to its inquiry. Rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense, today President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order to dissolve the Commission, and he has asked the Department of Homeland Security to review its initial findings and determine next courses of action.

Do you know this law against ‘burning’ our flag exists? Probably not because it seems all our REPUBLIC LAWS have been stomped on with no consequences. The First Amendment is ‘Freedom to Speak’ to say whatever it is you have to say. Burning our flag is an ACTION- which is not protected speech. Demand the enforcement of this law!
18 U.S. Code § 700 – Desecration of the flag of the United States; penalties
Current through Pub. L. 114-38. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.)
(1)Whoever knowingly mutilates, defaces, physically defiles, burns, maintains on the floor or ground, or tramples upon any flag of the United States shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both.
(2)This subsection does not prohibit any conduct consisting of the disposal of a flag when it has become worn or soiled.
(b)As used in this section, the term “flag of the United States” means any flag of the United States, or any part thereof, made of any substance, of any size, in a form that is commonly displayed.
(c)Nothing in this section shall be construed as indicating an intent on the part of Congress to deprive any State, territory, possession, or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico of jurisdiction over any offense over which it would have jurisdiction in the absence of this section.
(1)An appeal may be taken directly to the Supreme Court of the United States from any interlocutory or final judgment, decree, or order issued by a United States district court ruling upon the constitutionality of subsection (a).
(2)The Supreme Court shall, if it has not previously ruled on the question, accept jurisdiction over the appeal and advance on the docket and expedite to the greatest extent possible.

Executive Order Blocking the Property of Persons Involved in Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption
Law & Justice
Issued on: December 21, 2017
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) (NEA), the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act (Public Law 114-328) (the “Act”), section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 (8 U.S.C. 1182(f)) (INA), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code,
I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the prevalence and severity of human rights abuse and corruption that have their source, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States, such as those committed or directed by persons listed in the Annex to this order, have reached such scope and gravity that they threaten the stability of international political and economic systems. Human rights abuse and corruption undermine the values that form an essential foundation of stable, secure, and functioning societies; have devastating impacts on individuals; weaken democratic institutions; degrade the rule of law; perpetuate violent conflicts; facilitate the activities of dangerous persons; and undermine economic markets. The United States seeks to impose tangible and significant consequences on those who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption, as well as to protect the financial system of the United States from abuse by these same persons.
I therefore determine that serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.
I hereby determine and order:
Section 1. (a) All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in:
(i) the persons listed in the Annex to this order;
(ii) any foreign person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General:
(A) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have directly or indirectly engaged in, serious human rights abuse;
(B) to be a current or former government official, or a person acting for or on behalf of such an official, who is responsible for or complicit in, or has directly or indirectly engaged in:
(1) corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets, the expropriation of private assets for personal gain, corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources, or bribery; or
(2) the transfer or the facilitation of the transfer of the proceeds of corruption;
(C) to be or have been a leader or official of:
(1) an entity, including any government entity, that has engaged in, or whose members have engaged in, any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section relating to the leader’s or official’s tenure; or
(2) an entity whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order as a result of activities related to the leader’s or official’s tenure; or
(D) to have attempted to engage in any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section; and
(iii) any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General:
(A) to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of:
(1) any activity described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section that is conducted by a foreign person;
(2) any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or
(3) any entity, including any government entity, that has engaged in, or whose members have engaged in, any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section, where the activity is conducted by a foreign person;
(B) to be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or
(C) to have attempted to engage in any of the activities described in subsections (iii)(A) or (B) of this section.
(b) The prohibitions in subsection (a) of this section apply except to the extent provided by statutes, or in regulations, orders, directives, or licenses that may be issued pursuant to this order, and notwithstanding any contract entered into or any license or permit granted before the effective date of this order.
Sec. 2. The unrestricted immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States of aliens determined to meet one or more of the criteria in section 1 of this order would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and the entry of such persons into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, is hereby suspended. Such persons shall be treated as persons covered by section 1 of Proclamation 8693 of July 24, 2011 (Suspension of Entry of Aliens Subject to United Nations Security Council Travel Bans and International Emergency Economic Powers Act Sanctions).
Sec. 3. I hereby determine that the making of donations of the types of articles specified in section 203(b)(2) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(2)) by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order would seriously impair my ability to deal with the national emergency declared in this order, and I hereby prohibit such donations as provided by section 1 of this order.
Sec. 4. The prohibitions in section 1 include:
(a) the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; and
(b) the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.
Sec. 5. (a) Any transaction that evades or avoids, has the purpose of evading or avoiding, causes a violation of, or attempts to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.
(b) Any conspiracy formed to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.
Sec. 6. For the purposes of this order:
(a) the term “person” means an individual or entity;
(b) the term “entity” means a partnership, association, trust, joint venture, corporation, group, subgroup, or other organization; and
(c) the term “United States person” means any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States.
Sec. 7. For those persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, I find that because of the ability to transfer funds or other assets instantaneously, prior notice to such persons of measures to be taken pursuant to this order would render those measures ineffectual. I therefore determine that for these measures to be effective in addressing the national emergency declared in this order, there need be no prior notice of a listing or determination made pursuant to this order.
Sec. 8. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to take such actions, including adopting rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to me by IEEPA and the Act as may be necessary to implement this order and section 1263(a) of the Act with respect to the determinations provided for therein. The Secretary of the Treasury may, consistent with applicable law, redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States. All agencies shall take all appropriate measures within their authority to implement this order.
Sec. 9. The Secretary of State is hereby authorized to take such actions, including adopting rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to me by IEEPA, the INA, and the Act as may be necessary to carry out section 2 of this order and, in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, the reporting requirement in section 1264(a) of the Act with respect to the reports provided for in section 1264(b)(2) of that Act. The Secretary of State may, consistent with applicable law, redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States consistent with applicable law.
Sec. 10. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General, is hereby authorized to determine that circumstances no longer warrant the blocking of the property and interests in property of a person listed in the Annex to this order, and to take necessary action to give effect to that determination.
Sec. 11. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to submit recurring and final reports to the Congress on the national emergency declared in this order, consistent with section 401(c) of the NEA (50 U.S.C. 1641(c)) and section 204(c) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1703(c)).
Sec. 12. This order is effective at 12:01 a.m., Eastern Standard Time, December 21, 2017.
Sec. 13. This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
