In case you missed it, the Detroit News editorial board called out Attorney General Dana Nessel for her efforts to undermine Michigan laws that do not align with her radical liberal views. This directly contradicts our system of checks and balances and erodes the power of our elected legislators. Michigan’s “top cop” needs to enforce our state's laws, not try to make her own. Nessel oversteps authority in axing lawsBy the Detroit News Editorial Board Dana Nessel has wasted no time in her first few months in office throwing out or undermining laws she doesn’t like. But she’s the attorney general, not the Legislature, and she is abusing her authority. The three distinct branches of government exist for a reason, and as part of the executive branch, Nessel’s job is not to interfere with law-making. She’s supposed to enforce the laws. Nessel can advise on the legality of legislation in the works, but she’s taken her role and her partisanship much further. Her activism is unprecedented in Michigan.  There are several recent examples that demonstrate Nessel's disregard for legislative authority. Last week, Nessel signed a settlement agreement with the ACLU in an adoption case that will likely lead to faith-based placement agencies getting out of this important service. The ACLU sued the state in 2017 over its 2015 law that protects the religious freedom of adoption agencies if they choose not to place a child with a same-sex couple. Catholic and other faith-based agencies are some of the largest providers that contract with... More >

Peters and Stabenow Vote “Present” on Green New Deal LANSING, Mich., March 26, 2019 –  The $93 trillion Green New Deal was defeated in the United States Senate today when it failed to reach the 60 votes needed to advance. However, Michigan Senators Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow refused to take a stand on the resolution with both voting “present”.  Their inaction resulted in the people of Michigan having no representation on a resolution that would destroy Michigan’s manufacturing and agricultural sectors if implemented. The Green New Deal has also received criticism for even more outlandish proposals such as retrofitting/rebuilding every building in the United States to be carbon compliant, and replacing most air and auto travel with rail by 2030. “When Michigan’s workers, farmers, and families needed their Senators to take a stand on this $93 trillion boondoggle, Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow chose to sit on the bench.” said Laura Cox Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party. Cox continued “By ducking the vote on the Green New Deal, Peters and Stabenow have denied the people of Michigan a say on a resolution that would destroy the state’s manufacturing and agricultural sectors if implemented.  This is further proof that the Democratic Party is moving towards state-run socialist schemes. Michiganders deserve a Senator who will stand up to these socialist, big government programs.”  More >

Brooks Patterson’s announcement that he has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. “My prayers and the prayers of Republicans across our state go out to L.

Brooks Patterson.” More >

In case you missed it, Nolan Finley of the Detroit News has laid out the case for why an investigation of the ties between Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign and the Obama Department of Justice is warranted. Those ties led to the false accusations that the Trump campaign had colluded with the Russians and cost the American taxpayers over $25 million.  Turn sights now to Clinton/DOJ collusionBy Nolan Finley, Detroit News Democrats, devastated that the president of the United States did not collude or conspire with the Russians to steal the 2016 election, are vowing to press on with their witch-hunt until they see Donald Trump burning at the stake. Setting aside Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller's exoneration of the president on the collusion allegations and his failure to produce enough evidence to support obstruction of justice charges, the Democratic-controlled House intends to continue investigations of the Trump White House by every committee that can claim the slightest jurisdiction. For the next 22 months, Democrats will be consumed with trying to get smoke out of the pop gun that is Mueller's report. But they should be careful. That railroad has tracks running in both directions. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, began the Republican counteroffensive Monday by announcing he believes a second special prosecutor is warranted to investigate the shady beginnings of the collusion probe. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has for several months been probing possible abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by the Department of Justice and FBI to jump-start the...

Mueller Finds No Collusion or Obstruction LANSING, Mich., March 24, 2019 –  The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox on today’s revelation that Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no collusion, or obstruction between the Trump campaign, and the Russian government, during the 2016 election. “After two years and millions of wasted taxpayer dollars, the American people now know the truth, this was just a Democrat led witch hunt. There was no collusion with the Russian government and the President in no way obstructed justice.
