“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.

Wolf Hit and Killed by Car in Gladstone

WOLF HIT AND KILLED BY CAR IN GLADSTONE

GLADSTONE, Mich. (WLUC) – A wolf has been hit and killed by a car between Escanaba and Gladstone.

Kelly Norkooli says her stepson Bobby Beauchamp was driving south on U.S. 2 and U.S. 41 on Thursday February 23, just past the Shell gas station in Gladstone near the Log Cabin Grill and Bar.
He says, the wolf ran out in front of his car and he was unable to avoid it.

The Department of Natural Resources has confirmed they are in possession of the wolf.
DNR spokesman John Pepin told TV6 they believe it’s a lone wolf and there’s no evidence of a pack in the area.
The wolf will be sent to the DNR’s disease lab in East Lansing.

H.R. 193 American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017

JACK BERGMAN
1ST DISTRICT, MICHIGAN

Mrs. Bonnie Frownfelter
(Address removed for privacy)
Munising, MI 49862-8840

Dear Mrs. Frownfelter:
Thank you for contacting me with your support for H.R. 193, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017. It is an honor to serve the people of Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula, and I appreciate your thoughts on this important matter.

As you may know, on January 3, 2017, Representative Mike Rogers (AL-3) introduced H.R. 193. This legislation requires the president to terminate U.S. membership in the United Nations, prohibits the U.S. from contributing funds to U.N. military operations, and invalidates diplomatic immunity for U.N. officials in the United States. H.R. 193 has been referred to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs; however, there has been no further action on this bill to date. While I am not a member of this committee, I will be sure to keep your thoughts in mind should this bill come before the House for a vote.

Again, thank you for contacting me to share your support for H.R. 193, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017. It is an honor to represent you in the U.S. House of Representatives, and I am here to help in any way possible. Please do not hesitate to call if I may ever be of service. You can also visit my website at http://bergman.house.gov to learn more about the many services with which my office is happy to assist. I look forward to hearing from you again soon.
Kind regards,

Jack Bergman

Memorandum For The President

MEMORANDUM FOR THE PRESIDENT

WARNING: You have 30 days to settle the country. A violent “American Spring” looms.

You are under attack on three fronts:

  1. The Extreme Left & the controlled “fake news” MSM
  2. US Neo-Conservatives led by Dick Cheney, funded by foreigners
  3. The Deep State of entrenched senior officials combined with Senators and Representatives being blackmailed and bribed to betray the Republic.

You are not under attack from Iran or Russia – all your existential fights are right here.

There are four things you need to do immediately in order to survive:

  1. Switch out Preibus and Flynn — smart choices for the transition, they are undermining you now, Tillerson and Mattis probably agree they both need to go. You need a loyal Chief of Staff who can manage complexity, and a National Strategy Advisor with balance.
  2. Introduce the Electoral Reform Act of 2017 and demand that it go through – this is the only way you will survive the looming demise of the Republican Party; the only way you legitimize your accidental 27% presidency with a majority of the public; and the only way you free Members from foreign and financial community bribery and blackmail.
  3. Create the non-profit educational Trump Channel backed up by an Open Source Agency. Clear the existing press area in the White House, turn that into Trump Studios, and offer a daily fireside chat as well as short daily briefs by your principals in turn on each threat, each policy, each budget – bypass the fake news media, educate the public, and use PollMole to see what 200 million think on a Presidential Dashboard.
  4. Unleash the FBI, with NSA support, against the Deep State. You may have already started this, the Republican and Democratic Party pedophiles are the Achilles heel. We can isolate 500 other embedded traitors (financial, religious, ideological) in 90 days.

There are four things you can do to be the greatest President in modern history.

  1. Diversify your senior team – adding Cynthia McKinney and Dennis Kucinich – and Ralph Nader and Jesse Ventura in some capacity – will strangle the extreme left and open up the middle. Take your diversified team on the road – 50 states in 30 days.
  2. Organize a Grand Strategy Summit, televised for public consumption – the ultimate reality show. The last one was done in 1953 by Ike Eisenhower. Address all high level threats and all Cabinet policy domains in context of achieving a balanced budget.
  3. Organize a Revenue Summit, televised for public consumption, in which you invite Dr. Edgar Feige of Wisconsin to brief his idea of an Automated Payment Transaction Tax that allows you to eliminate all other taxes, especially income taxes. This fractional tax puts the tiny burden where it should be: on Wall Street instead of Main Street. Allow the public to scrutinize the alternatives you have been considering. You will be a hero.
  4. Invite every citizen in debt to sign a Debt Renunciation Pledge on a non-profit website, authorizing you to negotiate, on their behalf, a reduction of the three trillion dollars in student debt, elderly medical debt, and small business and family credit card debt. This will connect you to 150 million or more citizens and empower you against Wall Street.

Michigan Restaurant – Legs Inn – Middle of Nowhere!

The Michigan Restaurant In The Middle Of Nowhere That’s So Worth The Journey

Michigan is home to so many talented chefs and amazing restaurants it’s sometimes hard to choose, right? How about a restaurant that’s out of the way, maybe even considered “remote” due to its unique location? There are probably many remote restaurants in Michigan, but this one in particular is so worth the journey.

The Legs Inn is a landmark in these parts and deservedly so. It’s been in the same family for more than 90 years and is one of the most unique “destination restaurants” you’ll encounter in Michigan.

Perched high on a bluff with long-range views of Lake Michigan, Legs Inn is seemingly in the middle of nowhere with views that go on forever.

Nearly 300 Arrested – CA Human Trafficking Raids

Nearly 500 arrested in California human trafficking raids

By Sebastien Malo

NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Almost 500 people were arrested in a crackdown on human trafficking in California, police said on Wednesday, in raids that also led to the rescue of more than 50 victims, including children.

Police said they had rescued 28 children, some of whom had been reported missing, and also 27 adults who had been coerced into prostitution.

“We let everybody know throughout the state that … we’re going to aggressively go after the pimps and the exploiters, as well as the johns and especially the johns that think that they can prey on the minors,” said Kent Wegener, a lieutenant with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department

Police arrested 474 people and freed victims in and around cities from Los Angeles to San Diego and Santa Barbara in state-wide raids over three days in late January, Wegener said.

Charges against those arrested include pimping, solicitation of prostitution and human trafficking, said the San Diego Country District Attorney’s office in a statement.

The crackdown was carried out to coincide with the end of Human Trafficking Awareness Month in January, which former President Barack Obama proclaimed in 2014.

More cases of human trafficking were reported in California than in any other U.S. state last year, according to data from the National Human Trafficking Resource Center’s hotline.

Some 5,500 cases of sex trafficking were reported to the center’s hotline nationwide last year, according to its website.

Globally, nearly 21 million people are victims of human trafficking, according to the U.N.’s International Labour Organization. An estimated 4.5 million of them are forced into sex work.

There Is No Liberty With Innocents in Prison!

There Is No Liberty With Innocents in Prison!

For Immediate Release: February 1st, 2017

We The People of The United States of America, do hereby request the immediate assistance and intervention by President Donald J Trump, the U S Congress, the U S Attorney General, media outlets, churches, civic groups, and all freedom organizations, to join together in stopping the injustices befalling numerous Americans, who are now in prison as a result of out-of-control federal regulations. These victimized Americans have not committed any crimes, have harmed no other human being, and are good honest people. It appears that their only offense has been to offend federal bureaucrats, who have in turn done all in their power to make examples of otherwise law-abiding citizens. We beg the President and all public servants to put an end to these senseless and cruel atrocities. A brief review of only a few of these injustices are as follows: Continue reading

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

Monday, February 6, 2017

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

Slavery By Consent

SLAVERY BY CONSENT

Every American citizen needs to see this and understand what has happened to the people of this country.  The war was not fought to free the slaves …that was the lie told to the people to get support… it was about COMMERCE…it’s always about money…the 14th Amendment enslaved all CITIZENS… via the BIRTH CERTIFICATE and US CITIZENSHIP.

The Foreign International BANKERS are enemies of all people and until we open our eyes to see the truth we will never be free men and women and human trafficking will never stop!
