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...

Stevens Tone Deaf to Democratic SocialismStevens Calls Ocasio-Cortez “Dynamic Rock Star” LANSING, Mich., March 21, 2019 –  In a recent Time Magazine article, Michigan Democrat Congresswoman Haley Stevens expresses her praise for fellow freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling her a “dynamic rock star”. This praise comes despite the fact that Ocasio-Cortez’s signature policy goal, the $93 trillion Green New Deal, would destroy Michigan’s economy by decimating the states manufacturing and agricultural industries.  In addition to its job-killing regulations, the Green New Deal would also strip away American’s right to choose their own health care. In Stevens district alone, 85% of constituents would lose their healthcare coverage, having it replaced with a government-run healthcare bureaucracy.   Ocasio-Cortez has also received criticism for sending a fundraising appeal that said that pro-Israeli group AIPAC was, “coming for her”, after fellow Democrat Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib faced their own anti-Semitic scandals. Despite these type of incidents, Stevens said Ocasio-Cortez was simply, “Getting a lot of attention” and “Why is that a bad thing?” “If Haley Steven’s thinks Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a ‘rock star’, she must be tone deaf.”  said Laura Cox Michigan Republican Party Chairman “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a democratic-socialist whose radical agenda would destroy our economy and healthcare system. Michigan can’t afford Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist vision for our nation, or to have a Congresswoman who refuses to stand up to these extreme elements in her party.”   More >

In Case You Missed it: Gillibrand Joins the Race to the Left In case you missed it, video surfaced yesterday of Kirsten Gillibrand saying that firearms manufacturers, "want to sell an assault rifle to a teenager in a Walmart." Previously, Gillibrand supported 2nd Amendment rights, but apparently that does not fit the Democrat's new ultra-radical agenda. This is just another sad example of how Democrat Presidential candidates will say anything in their race to the left.

Gillibrand and O’Rourke Race to the Radical Left! LANSING, Mich., March 18, 2019 – Today, Democrat Presidential Candidates Kirsten Gillibrand and Beto O’Rourke used their Michigan campaign stops to appeal to the most radical elements of the Democrat party. In a desperate attempt to court progressives and socialists, the candidates each made a laundry list of promises including the public financing of campaigns, government-run healthcare, free college, and the passage of the budget-busting Green New Deal. There was no indication on how either would pay for their plans, but the cost for the Green New Deal alone has been estimated at $93 trillion over ten years or $600,000 per American family.  In an MSNBC town hall in Auburn Hills, Gillibrand reportedly told the audience, “we should be brave enough to fight for Medicare for all. We should be brave enough to fight for a Green New Deal,” despite the fact that the Green New Deal would hit Michigan’s manufacturing and agricultural industries especially hard. O’Rourke has previously said that, “the future of the world” depends on the $93 trillion boondoggle. In line with the Democrats race to the left, video surfaced today of Gillibrand saying that firearms manufacturers, “want to sell an assault rifle to a teenager in a Walmart.” Previously, Gillibrand supported 2nd amendment rights.  “Today, Gillibrand and O’Rourke engaged in a game of progressive one-upmanship, promising money our nation doesn’t have, on government takeovers it doesn’t need.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “If the socialist plans being... More >

Democrat Circus Comes to MichiganGas Tax Gretchen Meets Green Deal Gillibrand While Beto Stumps in Southeast MI LANSING, Mich., March 18, 2019 –  The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox on today’s Presidential campaign visits by Green New Deal supporters Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Congressman Beto O’Rourke. Gillibrand will appear with Governor Gretchen Whitmer, while O’Rourke’s will be campaigning in southeastern Michigan. “Today, the Democrat Presidential circus is coming to Michigan and bringing with it two of its biggest clowns. However, there is nothing funny about Kirsten Gillibrand and Beto O’Rourke’s support for the Green New Deal. This $93 trillion disaster would deal a fatal blow to Michigan’s manufacturing and agricultural sectors, and destroy Michigan’s middle class. The Green New Deal, along with “Gas Tax Gretchen’s” 45-Cent fuel tax fiasco, is further proof that the Democrat Party’s only solution is for Michiganders to pay more.”    More >

Nessel Turns Back on Michigan Farmers LANSING, Mich., March 15, 2019 –  The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Attorney General Dana Nessel’s decision to withdraw Michigan from a Multi-State lawsuit filed against over-burdensome EPA regulations. The regulations were opposed by Nessel’s Republican predecessor due to the adverse effects they will have on Michigan farmers. “Attorney General Dana Nessel’s decision to withdraw Michigan from the lawsuit seeking to limit federal overregulation, under the Waters of the United States rules, threatens our state’s second leading industry, and is a slap in the face to Michigan farmers. Nessel hides behind the cloak of the Great Lakes, but this lawsuit isn’t about the Great Lakes.  This lawsuit was designed to stop environmental extremists from regulating every mud puddle, on every farm in the state, which would drive up the cost to farm, eliminate jobs and raise food prices for everyone in our state.  This is Nessel’s own ‘Green New Deal’ for Michigan, and it is just as much a disaster as the one put forward by environmental extremists in Washington.” More >
