“No Whites Allowed” Spaces wanted on UMich Campus

UMich Students Demand No-Whites-Allowed Space to plot ‘Social Justice’ Activism

UPDATED [see below]

A student activist group at the University of Michigan is demanding campus officials provide them with “a permanent designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work.”

The demand is one of several lodged by “Students4Justice,” who this month ratcheted up campus demonstrations to pressure administrators to cave, complaining in a newly launched petition that President Mark Schlissel has snubbed their demands.

The clamor for a segregated space for students of color to organize social justice efforts comes even as the public university builds a $10 million center for black students and others in the center of campus.

The State of Michigan plans to sell 100 million gallons of groundwater for $200 to Nestle.

That is what this petition is hoping to expose.

Only miles away from Flint, Michigan — where the government switched the water supply and poisoned the community’s water to save a few bucks — the Michigan water authority is considering letting Nestlé double the amount of groundwater it takes to bottle and sell for profit.

Fake News is Alinsky Tactics

Fake news is Alinsky tactics meant to shut Trump administration down

journalism

Democrats who do not want Trump to make America great again are putting his entire administration and all of America under siege with Alinsky tactics designed to stop Trump from taking action.  They say they are impartial and unbiased, but that bald faced lie earns them five Pinocchios.

The “Very Fake News” of the leftwing media is not just dishonest reporting, not just twisting the facts to make Trump look bad or appease their followers.  They are actively using Alinsky tactics to distract, defame, demoralize, and immobilize President Trump and the Republicans.  If you haven’t read them then you should so you can understand the purposeful actions of leftwing radicals.  Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” is an instruction manual akin to Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” on how to disrupt and overthrow the rightful government in order to gain power to eventually install a socialist dictator.  The Democrat media’s purpose is not to report the news, but to warp the news to detract from Trump’s achievements, and cause so much mayhem that his people are inundated with chaos keeping them from moving forward.

George Washington: Political Parties

George Washington’s views on political parties in America


Wednesday, December 31, 2014

SAN JOSE, March 9, 2012 – When George Washington became President of the United States in 1789, there were no political parties.

Political parties first emerged during Washington’s first term in office with the Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist Party in 1791 and in the following year, the formation of the Anti-Federalist Party or Democratic-Republicans under the leadership of Thomas Jefferson.

The two political parties formulated their views of how government ought to operate in the new republic.

At the end of Washington’s first term, as he was preparing to retire and go back to Mt. Vernon to just be a farmer again, the leaders of the opposing parties both wanted him to reconsider with Hamilton and Jefferson pleading with Washington to stay on for a second term.

Jefferson is credited as stating: “North and South will hang together if they have you to hang on.”

Washington finally consented to such sentiments and was again the obvious choice of the Electoral College as they re-elected him in February of 1793.

During Washington’s second term, the divisions between the two political parties became defined. A good part of the underlying differences between the two factions centered on the French Revolution (1789-1799). Continue reading

An Open Letter Regarding Trump and Putin

An Open Letter Regarding Trump and Putin

This Open Letter is addressed to certain Senators and Members of Congress including Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senator Ben Sasse, Senator Marco Rubio, and Congresswoman Liz Cheney in the wake of comments they made over the weekend.

Dear Senators and Members of Congress:

Thank God for President Trump’s honesty.

In your coordinated weekend expressions of outrage over the President’s comments regarding Putin and Russia, you are correct about one thing: there is no “moral equivalence” between the conduct of Russia under Vladimir Putin and the behavior of the United States during the quarter of a century that has elapsed since the Soviet Union collapsed. Putin wins that contest every time and it is not even close.

Since then, the United States has violently overthrown governments and invaded, bombed, and occupied territories in more than a dozen countries stretching from the Balkans, across North Africa, throughout the Middle East and up into the Ukraine. During the same period, Russia has attacked no other nation despite a blizzard of propaganda to the contrary emanating from the bi-partisan U.S. War Party and its allies in Establishment media organs.

During the last 25 years, the United States has caused the deaths of more than a million people in sovereign nations that have not attacked us including hundreds of thousands of non-combatant men, women and children. This trail of bloody carnage runs through the former Yugoslavia, Algeria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, the Ukraine, Yemen, Somalia, and Syria (among others) and continues to this day. In contrast, Russia has conducted itself with admirable restraint despite the most recent United States’ aggression in which the United States organized, funded, and directed the violent overthrow of Ukraine’s democratically-elected government and inserted a puppet regime in its place in February of 2014. Senator John McCain and Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, were intimately and directly involved in that putsch.

Just to be clear, I am no peacenik. I believe defense of the nation is the Federal Governmen’s primary responsibility. I am a veteran of five years active duty service with the 1st Cavalry Division, the 7th Infantry Division, and the XVIII Airborne Corps. I am a small businessman and the father of five grown children, two of whom were career military men. I despise Marxism, Socialism, and collectivism of all sorts and for most of my life have considered myself to be a conservative Republican. That self-identification ended when I finally realized that the Republican Party and the Washington Defense and Diplomatic establishment had been subverted by an insane empire-building neoconservative cult during the Clinton administration.

The hypocrisy that underlies your constant efforts to demonize Russia and Iran is disgusting and transparently obvious. For murderous thugs like you who have been constant cheer leaders to Washington’s bloody banditry and are implicit in it to presume to lecture the President of any other country about his conduct is enough to make one vomit. I only hope the American people awaken quickly enough bring you and your fellow war criminals to justice before you ignite the Great War you are working so hard to foment.

Sincerely,
Frank J. Brady

REF: ENOUGH!  OPEN LETTER REGARDING TRUMP AND PUTIN

Michigan College Busts Students Sharing Constitution

Michigan College Busts Students For Giving Out U.S. Constitutions Without Permit

Asking passers-by if they ‘like freedom and liberty’ deemed ‘too provocative’

A federal lawsuit was filed against Kellogg Community College Wednesday alleging students’ free speech and due process rights were violated. The lawsuit comes after an incident in the fall where student activists were arrested and jailed after refusing to stop handing out pocket Constitutions on the campus.

On Sept. 20, 2016, KCC students Brandon Withers, Michelle Gregoire and three students from other colleges were passing out pocket-size Constitutions and recruiting students to join the Young Americans for Liberty group at the Battle Creek campus. As they were doing it, school administrators told them they were violating a school solicitation policy.

Alliance Defending Freedom, a legal foundation that advocates for freedom of speech and religion, is representing Withers, Gregoire, and Young Americans for Liberty. KCC’s trustees, President Mark O’Connell, Chief of Public Safety Harold West, and Drew Hutchinson, manager of student life, are listed as defendants in the lawsuit, among others

 SOME UPPER PENINSULA RESIDENTS IN REVOLT OVER FEDERAL ROAD CLOSINGS

U.P. Senator on Forest Service plan: ‘They’re not listening to the citizens’

Some Upper Peninsula residents are outraged over a U.S. Forest Service plan to close roads in the Hiawatha National Forest. Community members say they were left out of the planning process and presented with a plan they were expected to sign off on.

The proposal, called the Camp Cooks Integrated Resource Management Project, would close a number of specified two-track roads and trails in order to diminish accessibility and reduce alleged environmental damage. These roads are unpaved and typically not large enough for full-sized vehicles. They are often used for recreational purposes by people who ride ORVs, side-by-side ATVs and snowmobiles, but they are occasionally used to access camps and other private properties within the million-acre national forest.

The Forest Service wants to close 35 miles of existing roads that were previously ordered to be closed but never were, according to the plan. It designates these roads “operation maintenance level 1,” or “OML 1,” which it reserves for roads meant for “basic custodial care” and not vehicular traffic.

The plan also calls for decommissioning another 31 miles of roads based on criteria that are not clear in the text. The Forest Service did not respond to questions asking for a clarification.

The Camp Cooks plan also asserts that 95 percent of such roads in the forest should be closed down because they are damaging wetlands. (It’s unclear how many more roads and trails this may be, but regular visitors know that the entire forest is crisscrossed by hundreds if not thousands of these “two-rutters.”)

One of the announced goals is to limit access to make the forest more secluded for wildlife.

“The purpose of this proposal is to reduce access in areas with management emphasis on seclusion,” the plan states.

In Nahma Township, which lies entirely within the Hiawatha forest, four trail networks totaling 16.2 miles have been deemed “illegal,” with a recommendation that they be closed. The “illegal” label is claimed because these two tracks have not been designated official off-highway vehicle (OHV) areas and were not created by the Forest Service.

“The trails are located in sensitive areas including wetlands and Great Lakes coastal lands,” the plan states. “Increasing illegal use on these trails is negatively impacting hydrological and ecological function.”

Some local residents say the Forest Service has blocked their ability to provide meaningful input on the plan.

Rich Heinz, a Delta County resident who owns a business in Escanaba, said the situation has gotten out of control.

“There’s a huge problem up here with the Forest Service gone wild,” he said. Heinz added he has driven down many of the trails in question on his side-by-side and there’s no valid reason to close them.

“These people get emotional about a mud puddle because they want to turn it into a wetland,” said Heinz, who attended a Sept. 28 town hall where the plan was discussed with the Forest Service.

Sen. Tom Casperson, R-Escanaba, doesn’t buy the argument the Forest Service wants to shut down the roads to cut costs, another rationale the agency has cited.

“They’re not listening to the citizens,” he said. “This is an internal policy and I would challenge anybody to come up and take a look at what they’re talking about shutting down and you’ll shake your head because they’ve done no maintenance to these roads.”

Casperson and Rep. Ed McBroom, R-Vulcan, penned a letter to the Forest Service’s District Ranger Joanne Sanfilippo and Matt Dickinson, National Environmental Policy Act coordinator for the forest, on Oct. 5 asking them to abandon the Camp Cooks project.

The two said that instead of reducing public access and use of the public land, the Forest Service should work with local communities “to improve access, management and use of these lands where it makes sense.”

Casperson’s office said it has yet to get a response from the Forest Service.

“We urge the USFS to abandon this proposed project and work with these local units of government, users and organizations to determine how this public land can further enhance the local communities,” the letter continued. The office said it was “asking the agency to start over and involve the locals at step one of any discussions regarding change of use or management of the forest.”

Sanfilippo did not respond to a request for comment. Another town hall meeting is scheduled for Oct. 18.

Jason Hayes, director of environmental policy for the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, said that while the Forest Service likely had good intentions, the plan should be stopped since the community was left out of the planning process.

“Growing opposition to the Camp Cooks Integrated Resource Management Project is evidence that the U.S. Forest Service brought a completed plan to the people of Nahma Township with the expectation that they would simply agree without comment, and the process could proceed uninterrupted,” he said. “It is clear, however, that stakeholders in the area feel they have been excluded from the planning process and are demanding their rightful say — as taxpayers and residents — in the management of the Hiawatha National Forest.”

Hayes added, “While it may seem like a setback initially, the USFS needs to halt the current, failed process. They can then move forward with a concerted effort to work with local governments, local communities, and user and recreation groups. By doing that, they will gain the support of stakeholders and help to ensure the long-term success of the final plan.”

Before You Fail To Vote For Trump…

I received this by email…it is posted as written with no corrections for grammar or spelling…

BEFORE YOU FAIL TO VOTE FOR TRUMP…

I am 82 years old.  I have never ever before registered to vote and obviously I have never before ever voted.  The reason has never been because I was not interested, but because there was never before a candidate who was not a politician or a member of the establishment, even Dwight Eisenhower.  And, neither before has the outcome of a presidential election been so critically important to the future of our Federation and the prevention of the replacement of our Western Culture with a mishmash of confusion, with no manner of unity, being manipulated into Sharia Law.

Why have all those women and others who are now coming out with all the accusations against Donald Trump waited until now to vent their displeasure?  It is truly amazing, the revelations of Wikileaks about how the Democrap Party Leadership and or Hillary Clinton’s campaign Screw have paid agitators to disrupt Trump’s meetings; not to overlook how the CIA used Mena Arkansas as the import location for drugs while Bill Clinton was Governor and Hillary was his wife.
