This may be one of the most powerful, informative interviews ever on SGT Report. Wayne Jett is not only an accomplished author, he’s a brilliant historian and Patriot. Wayne explains that …
Senior Executive Service (SES) usurped the Civil Service when Congress and CARTER signed all the gov’t over to them when they created them in 1978/79. Top 500 are all lawyers and/or judges and most are also CIA. They create law, policy, rules, statutes, codes, & regulations to keep we the people under their control and to protect themselves from us. They control ALL AGENCIES, they’re un-elected, cannot be fired, and set their own wages. If one happens to get removed from one position they’re just removed to another. No requirements and no background checks necessary.
You don’t want to miss listening to this because he speaks what we all feel and know. Especially when it comes to our owned property that is a illlusion beecause what happens if we don’t pay our property taxes? We are ‘tenants’ on our own land.
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]

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
In the foundation of our nation income was not to be taxed and 74,000 pages is 329 times as long as the English translation of the Bible! (Statistic from a company called, “Commerce Clearing House.”) Taxing of the people is out of control and “We”…need to reform it!!
A MODEST PROPOSAL: LET’S SUNSET THE TAX CODE
“So, our tax code is nearly 74,000 pages long. Tax reform has been one of those unicorn issues in Congress. We talk about it, politicians campaign on it, but in the end; it never goes anywhere.

Troy, MI – Tom McMillin, Chairman of Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan, applauded the outcome of today’s election but cautioned that taxpayers must remain vigilant as legislators weigh other options for fixing Michigan’s roads.
“The people have spoken, and it is absolutely clear that today’s vote was a resounding rejection of tax increases, not road repairs. The Michigan Legislature must act swiftly yet carefully to resolve our road situation, and prove to their constituents they can do what the previous legislature could not: fix our roads within our budget.
“The taxpaying public never deserved to have this problem foisted upon them, but until the legislature develops a road funding solution within its budget, we remain concerned that this crisis of negligence might yet result in a taxpayer bailout.
“As a former mayor, former legislator, former Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, and practicing CPA, I will gladly and with sincere appreciation offer any counsel or assistance I can provide members of the Legislature to find savings for funding roads within current revenues,” McMillin said.
“Until the situation is resolved, Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan will continue to work to prevent unnecessary tax increases.”

Why voters should be offended by Proposal 1
The most offensive aspect of Proposal 1 isn’t the enormity of the tax increases proposed.
Certainly, the tax hikes are steep enough to upset voters who feel they pay enough already. The sales tax, gas tax and vehicle tax hikes combined would take an additional $2 billion every year, making Proposal 1 the largest tax increase in Michigan since the state income tax was introduced in 1967.
But it’s not the hundreds of dollars in additional taxes that voters would pay each year that inspires such bitter opposition to Proposal 1. Nor is it the hodgepodge of unrelated spending and regulations thrown into a proposal supposedly for road repair.
Voters should be deeply offended by the scare tactics employed by the forces supporting Proposal 1, telling us that anyone — even children — might be injured or killed by flying concrete any day now unless we pass these tax hikes.
ALTERNATIVE TO RAISING TAXES TO FIX MICHIGAN ROADS
We don’t need a big tax increase to fix our roads. Call your representative now and tell them so.

Subject: 15 state House reps co-sponsor fixing roads without raising taxes. Yours?
The bills introduced by Reps. Gary Glenn [R-Midland] and Todd Courser [R-Lapeer] have 15 co-sponsors between them, according to the state legislature’s website.
Both bills are essentially re-introductions of the plan that the state House passed last year, the “Bolger Plan,” to fix Michigan’s roads without raising taxes, which were unfortunately abandoned in favor of putting massive tax increases up to the voters on May 5.
Of course as we’ve been saying all along, it is unconscionable for the legislature to sit back and wait until May 6, the day after the election, to begin to decide how it will fix Michigan’s roads.
And the “Bolger Plan,” which has already passed the House once and doesn’t raise any taxes, seems like a good place to start working today to fix our roads. The plan also preserves funding for local governments and actually increases funding for public schools.
The House reps who are supporting the Bolger Plan may surprise you. They are:
Rep. Todd Courser (primary bill sponsor)
Rep. Gary Glenn (primary bill sponsor)
Rep. Mike Callton (R-Nashville)
Rep. Lee Chatfield (R-Levering)
Rep. Ray Franz (R-Onekama)
Rep. Cindy Gamrat (R-Plainwell)
Rep. Joseph Graves (R-Argentine)
Rep. Thomas Hooker (R-Bybron Center)
Rep. Joel Johnson (R-Clare)
Rep. Tim Kelly (R-Saginaw)
Rep. Klint Kesto (R-Commerce)
Rep. Dan Lauwers (R-Brockway)
Rep. Bruce Rendon (R-Lake City)
Rep. Harvey Santana (D-Detroit)
Rep. Michael Webber (R-Rochester Hills)
That’s 15 representatives of 110- not a bad start, and refreshing to see a Democrat in support of the plan.
Of those 15, six of them (Callton, Kelly, Kesto, Lauwers, Rendon, and Santana) voted for Proposal 1 last December. Courser, Glenn, Chatfield, Gamrat, and Webber are freshmen. Franz, Graves, Hooker, and Johnson voted against Proposal 1.
If your state representative is not on this list please take a moment to send a message to your representatives in Lansing. Tell them to do their job and support a plan to fix our roads on May 6 [the day after the election].
(Unlike the U.S. Congress, in the Michigan legislature bills can only be co-sponsored before they are introduced, so additional cosponsors cannot be added. But every state representative, and every senator, can go on record supporting any plan.)
If you think about it, the sham argument for Proposal 1–“no choice”–would be absurd in any situation. It would be irresponsible bordering on derelict for any legislator to say on any urgent public safety problem: “let’s ask voters to approve a given plan, but offer no alternative in the event they reject it.”
Yet that is the position some lawmakers are maintaining.
We need to tell our representatives in Lansing, today: Do your job, and support an alternative.
Whether it is Rep. Glenn’s plan, Todd Courser’s plan, or any other plan, the legislature must act, now, to decide upon a plan for the day after May 5–and have it done before the election.
In our opinion, a rejection of the May 5 ballot proposal would be a mandate from the people of Michigan to fix our roads without raising taxes.
Please take a moment now to click here to contact your representatives in Lansing and tell them: Support a plan to fix our roads without raising taxes.
Predictably, the Prop 1 pushers are lashing out, with a spokesman for the “Vote Yes Or Else” campaign saying the plan doesn’t raise enough new money.
More is never enough for the special interests in Lansing.
We will soon focus our efforts on getting out the vote and defeating the massive tax increases on May 5, but we too cannot wait until May 6 to act.
We need to make sure lawmakers do the right thing on May 6, and that means working now, not having emergency meetings and rushing through some new mess.
And besides, the more lawmakers do their jobs and support alternatives, the clearer it will be to the voters that it isn’t “Prop 1 or bust.” We can fix out roads without raising taxes. That’s a message lawmakers need to hear, right now.
Please, take a minute to send a message to your representatives in Lansing. Tell them to do their job and support a plan to fix our roads on May 6.
And keeping in mind that we still have a lot of work to do to win on May 5, we need as much support as we can get. We’re taking on a multi-million dollar special interest blitz.
If you can, please consider chipping in to support our efforts to defeat the tax hikes on May 5.
Thanks for standing for low taxes and more prosperity in Michigan,
The Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan Team
P.S. Our representatives need to hear from us now and they need to know they cannot remain silent. They need to pass a plan to fix Michigan’s roads on May 6, now. Please take one minute to sign the petition to Lansing today!

Breaking news February 23: CTM Chairman McMillin to Board of State Canvassers: Proposed language “Still Misleads Voters”
Don’t be fooled: Proposal 1 in the May 5 special election would raise the Michigan Sales Tax and the Gas Tax.
Michigan doesn’t need higher taxes to fix our roads or fund our schools. It needs less government spending elsewhere, which it could easily afford.
On Tuesday, May 5th, 2015, Michigan voters will decide whether or not to raise Michigan’s sales tax to 7%. Supporters of the tax claim Michigan’s roads need the money — but as with the gas tax today, most of the money wouldn’t even go to roads.
In fact, Michigan government annual spending skyrocketed by $2.7 billion since just four years ago — not counting $2 billion higher in federal spending for a whopping $4.7 billion budget increase.
Yet incredibly, taxpayers are now being told by the “Powers That Be” that they need to pay an even greater share of their money, just to fix our roads and fund our schools!
It’s about one thing: more money for the politicians and special interests in Lansing.
That’s why we say:
We are Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan.
And if you’d like your taxes not to rise…
Here then, is the complete set of laws to be decided by the May 5 ballot question. If you can make sense of it all, consider running for office — you’re more qualified than most of them!Proposal 1. To be decided by Michigan voters May 5, 2015Table of Contents
