The top 10 governor’s races of 2018
Democrats face another critical test at the state level in 2018, hoping to rebuild power in governors’ mansions around the country.

By DANIEL STRAUSS 12/31/2017 07:48 AM EST

8. Michigan — Republican Gov. Rick Snyder is term-limited.
Democrats are eager to paint whoever emerges out of the Republican primary as a carbon copy of the term-limited Snyder. Polling has shown former state Senate Democratic leader Gretchen Whitmer leading the Democratic primary field over Abdul El-Sayed, a physician and favorite of the progressive left, and engineer Shri Thanedar. On the Republican side, state Attorney General Bill Schuette is running against Lt. Gov Brian Calley and state Rep. Patrick Colbeck. Trump has already endorsed Schuette, and polling has shown him with a comfortable lead over the Republican primary field. General-election polls show tight races between the major candidates.

2017 Michigan Senate Rankings Most Lib-Conser




Contact: Publisher Susan J. Demas, 517.420.6779,

State Sen. Morris Hood III (D-Detroit) is the Most Liberal senator for the second straight year in Inside Michigan Politics’ annual rankings with an 88.9% liberal voting record. State Sen. Peter MacGregor (R-Rockford) is the 2017 “Most Conservative” champ, having only voted liberal 19.4% of the time on key roll call votes.

Inside Michigan Politics has calculated the definitive rankings of the Most Liberal and Most Conservative senators for more than 25 years. IMP also will release its state House rankings this month.

Placing second on the liberal side was state Sen. Rebekah Warren (D-Ann Arbor) with an 83.9% liberal record. She has the distinction of being the only senator to notch five straight “Most Liberal” wins — in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 — but Hood snapped her streak in 2016. State Sen. Hoon-Yung Hopgood (D-Taylor) was third, voting liberal 83.3% of the time.

On the conservative side of the spectrum, there was a three-way tie for second-most conservative senator between Sens. Goeff Hansen (R-Hart), Wayne Schmidt (R-Traverse City) and Jim Stamas (R-Midland), who each voted liberal 22.6% of the time. Third place was an eight-way tie between Sens. Darwin Booher (R-Evart); Joe Hune (R-Hamburg); Marty Knollenberg (R-Troy); Mike Kowall (R-White Lake); Jim Marleau (R-Lake Orion); Arlan Meekhof (R-West Olive); John Proos (R-St. Joseph); and Dave Robertson (R-Grand Blanc). They each had 25.8% liberal records.

The rankings are based on 31 litmus test roll-call votes in the state Senate this year. For the IMP rankings, 100% is the gold standard for a representative who voted the liberal position on roll calls for an array of social, economic, taxation, environmental, civil rights, and public health/safety issues. If a roll call was missed, it was simply thrown out.

IMP has ranked all 38 members of the Senate in 2017. That list is available to subscribers in our December 11, 2017, edition.

The list of the top three Most Liberal and Most Conservative senators from 2009 to 2015, is available at LINK


Combined Resources of the Deep State

Against all odds and the combined resources of the Deep State, President Trump is experiencing overwhelming success.

The Combined Resources of the Deep State

Are Being Defeated by President Trump

Dave Hodges Article

Donald Trump beat 16 corrupt, Deep-State controlled Republican candidates in the 2016 Republican primary. Following that victory, he destroyed Hillary in the general election, only massive voting fraud kept the election close.

President Trump’s political successes have come in the face of blatant lies and coordinated scheming of the MSM whose entire existence has morphed into removing this populist Presient from office. For example, CNN serves no other purpose than to get President Trump removed from office. CNN’s low ratings reflext the folly of this endeavor. The American people have voted with their feet and if organizations like Clear Channel Communications, owners of 1300 mainstream media radio stations and CNN/MSNBC/CNBC/ABC/CBS/ESPN et al, are all going, or have gone broke.

ESPN, whose former President was arrested on child pornography charges is on life support having just fired 150 significant employees in order to stop the financial bleeding. The American people, including myself, are tired of a sports network acting as a propaganda instrument of the Deep State. This endeavor was never more in evidence than this past Monday evening at College football’s national championship game. I was listening on ESPN radio during my commute home. I knew that President Trump was going to be a part of the opening ceremonies, so I tuned in. When the President was introduced to the crowd, he was wildly cheered.There was about 30 seconds of dead air on the radio in which the crowd reaction was on full display. I believe the ESPN accouncers were instructed to remain silent because they were hoping for a negative crowd reaction to President Trump as he was introduced. I could hear nothing but prolonged cheering over the dead air. Yet, that did not dissuade the ESPN accouncer from saying “There’s quite a mixed response the President received”. I think ESPN should invest in the purchase of “Miracle Ear” hearing aid products for its announcers. The President was the recipient of very robust and prolonged cheering from the crowd. I could not hear the negative reaction alluded to by the agent of ESPN propaganda. This is the same behavior as we see in these network polls that demean the President and word polling questions to the degree that ehey could easily elicit a negative reaction. Yet, independent polling shows that this President is not only popular with his base, he has expanded his base of support.

We have not learned that President Trump has been battling corrupt FBI agents who actively plotted to have him removed from office. No, President Trump is not paranoid, my own FBI source has seen the proof, up close and personal of the involvement of FBI personnel in the Russian Dossier.

Update – Coming Membership Function

Update:  I’m still working on the register and log-in features for this ‘blog site’. I’m adding easy log-in for those on social media but I need my pc that is 400 miles from my present location.

It’ll be another week or two before I’m able to finish the process.  I have to download code and upload code to verify my ownership of this property (website).  My original site builder is on my windows pc and I use a Mac for this WP site.

So, Lord willing, once I get the pc down here this will move along quickly.  The registration should be working now.

If you subscribed under the old format you’ll have to register again.  Security is in place to eliminate spam.

I postedt earlier I will not approve any requests that do not have a real name and typical email address.  I’m not hidden and I don’t expect anyone to hide that would register.

Registering is private so there is no need to hide.  NSA knows all of us already – do you have a smart phone? Smart TV? Or any other online devices – you’re known and even if you delete from your device it stays on the ‘cloud’.

To claim our Sovereignty that has been acknowledged by President Trump in multiple speeches to us and the world we must be courageous and stand up to the tyranny that has kept us oppressed for decades.


If we’re fearful to do and say what is ‘lawful’ to do and say then we are an oppressed people living under a tyrannical government and our country is in ‘distress’ reflected by the upside down flag- and all is upside down right now don’t you think?


We are the  Restoration Founders of our Constitutional Representative Republic. 

’One Nation Under God with Liberty and Justice for All’

The Oath of Office


Let’s start this way with the origin of the oath. In the United States Constitution under Article IV it states: “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution…” (U. S. Constitution 1787)

The Republic State of Michigan also covers language requiring an oath of office before entering upon the duties of political office. Article XI, sec.1 in the Constitution of the State of Michigan (Appendix B), states; “All officers, legislative, executive and judicial, before entering upon the duties of their respective officers, shall take and subscribe the following oath or affirmation: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the constitution of this state, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office of ______ according to the best of my ability…” (Constitution of the State of Michigan 1835)

It is clear that both the U. S. Constitution and the republic of Michigan Constitution hold politicians (all) accountable for their actions. If the oath is such an important word and referred to in both Constitutions, it is obvious that Politicians and Elected Official must know and understand what this word means.

A Sad Day in The Bundy “Mis”-Trial

A Sad Day in The Bundy “Mis”-Trial

[NOTE: This article was shared on Twitter by Cliven Bundy himself]

Dan Love Now a Whistle Blower?

As a citizen of this great country, I have just experienced one of the saddest days in my life.

Let me explain…

I sat in the courtroom of day 15 of the Cliven Bundy trial (at this point that is six calendar weeks in the courtroom).  Over the previous weeks, I’ve made the journey from my Northern Nevada home, staying weeks at a time in Las Vegas, to watch the wheels of justice turn … slowly … painfully slowly.

It was clear from the beginning motions and evidential testimony of Special Agent in Charge Daniel P. Love — and from the additional officers that were involved in the round-up operations in April 2014 — that there has been much more to the story than most were aware.

While I have come into this story later than most who are involved, I have had access to Cliven Bundy like no one else.  I spent two months at the detention center in Pahrump, NV, carefully chronicling Cliven’s story as his biographer.  Since my release, I have immersed not only my entire life; but, my editors, and research team in the Bundy drama.

Going into the trial, I quickly recognized that because of my background, I was more educated on the issues than most folks in the courtroom.  As I listened to the opening statements, the prosecution’s witnesses, the cross examinations, evidentiary hearings, I didn’t hear much information that was new (at least, to me). Most of what I heard only confirmed all I had already written about in my book on Cliven’s story, Cliven Bundy American Patriot. Continue reading

Fresh Look & New Functions Coming!

Hello and Happy New Year to all,

With this New Year we have a new look to reflect the return of our constitutional representative Republic.

President Trump in numerous speeches has given our Republic back to:

State of Michigan ~ Sovereign Republic

He has done what he can do as our President but he cannot ‘dictate’ us back to our Constitutional Republic, it will be up to We People to stand up and ‘take it back’ by demanding the enforcement of our constitutional laws, and remove all from Congress that do not adhere to them.

All congressional leaders that support the globalist U.N. agenda need to be REPLACED with those that know and enforce our Constitution.

LOL…I’m sorry I went off on my tangent because this note was only suppose to let you know there’ll be some new functions here such as the ability to register then log-in to post comments and receive emails of new posts.  I’m working on it now but not all is functional and I’m sure there will be errors until I ‘learn’ how to navigate all the settings.  Please be patient and continue to check-in for new posts.

Also if you see something of interest please share – buttons below.  Thank you!

Jury Nullification

Jury Nullification
“…there can be no doubt that the jury has an `unreviewable and unreversible power…to acquit in disregard of the instructions on the law given by the trial judge….'”

U.S. v Dougherty, 473 F.2d 1113, 1139 (1972).
Other info related to Dougherty case: 16 Am Jur 2d, Sec. 177.

“In criminal cases juries remained the judges of both law and fact for approximately fifty years after the Revolution. However, the judges in America, just as in England after the Revolution of 1688, gradually asserted themselves increasingly through their instructions on the law.
“We recognize, as applellants urge, the undisputed power of the jury to acquit, even if its verdict is contrary to the law as given by the judge and contrary to the evidence.”
U.S. v Moylan, 417 F.2d 1002,1006 (1969)

“It may not be amiss…to remind you of the good old rule, that on the question of fact, it is the province of the jury, and on the question of law, it is the province of the court to decide. But, it must be observed that by law…you have nevertheless a right to take it upon yourselves to judge both, in controversey…both objects are lawfully within your power of decision.” Justice John Jay to the jury, Georgia v. Brailsford, 3 Dall. 1, 4 (1794), 1 L.Ed. 483. “…for as, on the one hand, it is presumed that juries are the best judges of facts; it is, on the other hand, presumable, that the court are the best judges of law. But still, both objects are lawfully within your power of decision.”

Sparf v. United States, 156 U.S. 51 (1895)
‘It may not be amiss here, gentlemen, to remind you of the good old rule that on questions of fact it is the province of the jury, on questions of law it is the province of the court, to decide. But it must be observed that, by the same law which recognizes this reasonable distribution of jurisdiction, you have, nevertheless, a right to take [156 U.S. 51, 65] upon yourselves to judge of both, and to determine the law as well as the fact in controversy.

…the jury has “…the power to bring in a verdict in the teeth of both law and facts.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Horning v D.C., 254 U.S. 135, 138, 41 S.Ct. 53, 54, 65 L.Ed. 185 (1920)

“…no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.” U.S. Constitution, 7th Amendment. Only another common law jury can review a decision of a jury. There is no other appeal. Not even the Supreme Court can review a jury’s decision.

Presidential Advisory Commission- Election Integrity

Statement by the Press Secretary on the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity
Issued on: January 3, 2018

Despite substantial evidence of voter fraud, many states have refused to provide the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity with basic information relevant to its inquiry. Rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense, today President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order to dissolve the Commission, and he has asked the Department of Homeland Security to review its initial findings and determine next courses of action.

1895 8th grade final exam

Mich Biotech Firm Selling Unborn Babies Heads

Michigan Biotech Firm Caught Selling Heads of Unborn Babies, Officials Find Four Unborn Babies in Its Warehouse

A grisly case out of the state of Michigan is once again putting the spotlight on the sale of aborted baby parts.

A biotech firm has been caught selling the heads of unborn babies. There is no information on whether the babies died in miscarriages or were victims of abortions. But undercover agents on behalf of the Reuters news agency engaged in transactions to purchase the heads of those babies.

As part of the news agency’s examination of the industry, for example, a Reuters reporter was able to purchase two human heads and a cervical spine from Restore Life USA, a broker based in Blackburn’s home state of Tennessee. The deals were struck after just a few emails, at a cost of $900 plus shipping. Continue reading
