Looks like Detroit might get a federal bailout after all, by offloading its retiree health costs onto federal taxpayers via ObamaCare. It’s a window into why Obama-Care costs will quickly spiral out of control.
On Sunday, the New York Times noted that Detroit hopes to push its younger retirees who aren’t yet eligible for Medicare into the ObamaCare exchanges, where many will be eligible for subsidized insurance. Federal tax payers will pick up the tab, rather than those in Detroit…
Farmer Wins Right to Display Anti-Obama Signs On His Own Property

Michigan farmer Vern Verduin has won the right to display signs critical of Pres. Obama – on Verduin’s own truck and property – after Gaines Township officials took him to court in an effort to force him to remove them.
In response to First Amendment arguments raised by The Rutherford Institute, a state district court has dismissed charges against the Michigan cattle farmer who was cited and fined for displaying political banners critical of the Obama administration on a farming truck parked on his private 40-acre lot.

We’ve heard about the government spending $1.5 million to determine why most lesbians are fat and almost twice that much to discover why they are drunks, but a peek under the White House rug shows much more willful waste of our money.Barack Obama is arming Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood so they’ll be able to defeat our ally Israel in the next Middle East war.
He gives the PLO hundreds of thousands of our money each year as well. King Barack has eaten through $1.4 BILLION in happy lifestyle spending on him, Mooch and their royal highnesses. $505,000 of our tax dollars went to “to promote specialty hair and beauty products for cats and dogs” – yes cats and dogs!
The feds are lining someone’s pockets with $1 million a year to develop a menu for space travel with no such trips even scheduled. They have stood over a latrine and peed away $27 million of our money to teach Moroccans how to make clay pots.

A photo depicting what appears to be the Teamsters Union flag improperly flying above the American flag outside the union’s D.C. headquarters on Tuesday was sent to TheBlaze, and the story of how a Marine veteran who tried to bring it to the group’s attention was treated is sure to raise eyebrows.
The photo was taken by the Marine at approximately 2:10 pm ET and sent to TheBlaze by his brother. Both have requested anonymity for fear of retaliation by the union.This is the picture:
Yes, this is the same elegant creature who screeched about “taking out” Tea Party “son-of-a-bitches” [sic] at a presidential event last year. In case you’d forgotten, both the White House and the DNC conspicuously declined to repudiate his vituperation at the time. Now Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. has taken his anger mismanagement show to CNN, seething about an incipient “civil war” in Michigan:
Jimmy Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, said Tuesday he expects Michigan unions and lawmakers to break out into “civil war” after the state legislature passed right-to-work bills that would weaken unions’ power. “This is just the first round of a battle that’s going to divide this state. We’re going to have a civil war,” Hoffa said on CNN’s Newsroom.
“What they’re doing is basically betraying democracy,” he told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin. “If there’s any question here, let’s put it on the ballot and let the people of Michigan decide what’s good for Michigan.” Proponents of the legislation say it gives workers more freedom, while opponents say a less robust union presence will negatively affect workers’ rights. Hoffa also argued that those who don’t pay union dues will be considered “free riders,” as they’re getting the same benefits from union representation without the cost.
Birthmarks, be damned: the FBI has officially started rolling out a state-of-the-art face recognitionproject that will assist in their effort to accumulate and archive information about each and every American at a cost of a billion dollars.
Exclusive: Joseph Farah spotlights irony of Obama campaign’s response to Romney joke
TAMPA, Fla. –
In rapid response to Mitt Romney’s joke to a crowd in his home state of Michigan, that “No one ever asked me for my birth certificate,” Barack Obama’s campaign put out a 15-second TV spot to declare, “America doesn’t need a birther-in-chief.”

Not only do my ex’s live in Texas, but your ex’s, and pretty much everyone else’s ex’s as well. All of America is moving to Texas. Especially the ex-residents of high tax states like California and New York. And, I’ll bet many of the ex-residents of Big Brother tax and spend Massachusetts, Illinois and Michigan are there too.
The fact is Texas led the nation in net population growth for the past decade, while New York and California led the nation in net population loss. Interestingly, the most new Texans (over 550,000) came from one state- California. They brought with them a remarkable $14.3 billion in income, but even that paled to the almost $1 trillion in assets and income that re-located New Yorkers brought to the Lone Star State.
Michigan Massacre Reported by KGB… (“Is it possible that such carnage took place under the noses of American citizens?”)
By Douglas V. Gibbs Thursday, June 14, 2012
TEA Party activists, conservatives, and other groups opposed to the President’s policies have speculated that if the liberal democrats, led by der kommisar Barack Hussein Obama, continue to strip away freedoms in the fashion that they have been, we could wind up with blood in the streets.
According to Tim Flanegin, owner of MineraLab, the company that runs Radiation Network, it was simply a technical glitch.
Nonetheless a very scary glitch for many. WSBT in South Bend, Indiana had many concerned individuals call after the reported readings seemed to have gone through the roof.
There is no doubt in my mind that we should be on the look out for radiation (especially the particles that are more difficult to test for). So I am glad that people were alert and actively engaged. However, this does “seem” to be a glitch.
In a statement to WSBT Tim Flanegin says this about the occurrence:
“My apologies to all. I have no idea what caused this. The alert level reading (Wednesday) evening appears to be a false alert from an equipment malfunction,” said Flanegin. “We use some form of radiation, almost everyday. We count on it for medicine, the sciences, communication and cooking.”

Prison Planet.com » Indiana Radiation Spike Triggers Elevated Levels In Other States, Media Stays Silent
Elevated Indiana radiation levels — specifically near the border of Indiana and Michigan — have prompted explosions, military helicopters, thousands of eyewitness accounts, but where is the mainstream media coverage? Now independent radiation experts are reporting increased levels in some other states, with one particular station noticing an increase since just around 11:45am mountain time on Thursday.
It was recently reported that a rather significant, concerning, and mysterious spike in radiation occurred in the north Indiana / south Michigan area, causing widespread alarm throughout the nation. Not only are the reports of the radiation spike concerning in of itself, but the appearance of military helicopters, aircraft, and Department of Homeland Security hazmat fleets is also generating some raised eyebrows. Reports are continuously coming out updating on the event occurring throughout June 6-7, with locals reporting on a series of explosions, house-shaking rumbles, and even large trees being completely snapped in half on a clear day just days before.
The thunder-mimicking sound led some locals to believe that explosions took place in their own basements; planes breaking the sound barrier, earthquakes, and extremely powerful fireworks were ruled out – so what could it have been? Could the shakes and loud sounds have been a result of a terrible fracking incident? In the past fracking has caused concerning explosions both in Pennsylvania and Nixon.

These reports come after a Department of Homeland Security hazmat fleet was sent out to the location after ‘years’ of inactivity.
Those on the ground report that the explosions are ‘loud and deep’, sounding like fireworks with a kick. The explosions are oftentimes followed up with a squadron of helicopters or other aircraft, oftentimes black and unmarked. One Michigan resident reports the following, and is then backed by dozens of organic comments which confirm the findings:

I was invited via an email from Cabela’s to trick out my AR. It took a minute to figure that they were talking about an automatic rifle. The picture looked like the M-16 I carried 40 years ago in military service, but more upscale. I don’t own an AR. I don’t even have a gun. It is usually nice shirts and camping equipment I get from them. So it was a little surprising.
I like Cabela’s. When we lived in Michigan I’d take my kids to see their beautiful four-story displays of bears, coyotes, foxes in hinterland settings. It seemed a representative part of glorious northern Michigan known as the UP. I tend to like guns as well. But the AR is not a hunting gun. It is a war weapon and a lot of people are buying them. In fact, guns today are said to be the only bright spot on the economy and Cabela’s stock is booming.
But why are so many Americans buying guns? It has been like this for several years now. Since Obama was elected president. The question should be asked in the same way Thomas Mann once asked, “Why are they disinfecting the streets of Venice?” Is something dark and unknown rising within us? Is it already here?
Paul said that Santorum seemed to be an “addict of conspiracies.”

Ron Paul 2012
February 28, 2012
ANN ARBOR, Michigan – 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul shattered his already-impressive record of drawing supporters and undecided voters to his campaign events. Today, in a phenomenon unique to the Paul campaign, the 12-term Congressman from Texas drew an impressive 4,000 supporters to a youth rally held at Michigan State University.
Dr. Paul’s East Lansing Rally took place at 4:00 p.m. EST in the Concert Auditorium of Michigan State University, located at 149 Auditorium Road, East Lansing, MI 48824. The rally, part of a campaign swing in Michigan, was conducted in cooperation with ‘Youth for Ron Paul.’
Youth for Ron Paul (YFP), an initiative of the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign, launched on Wednesday, September 7th and since its inception more than 37,000 people signed up to join the campaign and get involved, forming more than 571 chapters.
“More and more young people each day show their support for Ron Paul because he proposes real solutions to America’s serious economic challenges. No other candidate can generate this level of enthusiasm among 18- to 29-year-olds, a key demographic for Republicans if they hope to beat President Obama. I join the 4,000 youth at MSU in saying I am excited for Election Day this November,” said Edward King, National Youth Coordinator for the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign.
In addition to a youth attendance, the rally was free and open to the East Lansing and at-large community.
Pictures of Ron Paul’s record-breaking campaign rally at MSU follow.
Ron Paul approaches the podium and surveys the capacity crowd at MSU.
Seats were full resulting in a large number of attendees standing in the back and along the aisles.
HANGING…”BY THE MOST TENUOUS OF THREADS…”
Leading in the national polls and within striking distance of scoring big victories in Michigan and Arizona next Tuesday, Rick Santorum is portraying himself as the little ‘guy from a steel town’ who will stop Barack Obama from accumulating regal powers.
‘Back in 2008, the American public at a time of crisis went for a rock star that they believed could solve their problems, someone that they believed in to make a difference in their lives,’ he said at the Maricopa County Lincoln Day lunch in Phoenix, Arizona.
(“…Communism is a “left” thing. I now know better, that “Neocon” means “Commie….”) ~ Communism in Indiana, the Real GOP | Veterans Today
It has taken me a long time to get over the idea that Communism is a “left” thing. I now know better, that “Neocon” means “Commie.” For years we were told that right wingers were Nazi’s. Imagine, having to apologize to Nazis.
The problem is spreading but the worst places, of course, have been Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana. A group there of what we now know to be communists have taken over the government pretending to be conservatives.
They have been working to break trade unions and replace them, not with capitalism. They want a Stalinist police state with gun seizures, neighborhood spy groups that they call “anti-terrorist watches” and, at the same time, destroy the middle class and education systems which might threaten totalitarian rule.
We thought “ground zero” would be Wisconsin but it is now Indiana where a jury just convicted Secretary of State Charlie White, the man who runs the state’s elections with 6 felony counts of voter fraud.
The governor tried to keep him in office anyway and has appointed his assistant, someone who may also face similar charges in what we have been told is a secret Federal Grand Jury investigation, as his replacement.
Is there no shortage of communists in Indiana? Why Indiana? Why the resurgence of communism? How did communists get control of the Republican party?
Mike Connell literally had a falling out – of the sky
The verdict against White came back yesterday at 2 pm while Whites assistant in all his acts on behalf of what we can now call the Socialist Republic of Indiana, Jerry Bonnet, has taken up his gauntlet.
The basis of communism is the elimination of free elections, we know this well in Ohio.
The agency announced Thursday that it had taken control of the domain names of 307 websites as part of “Operation Fake Sweep”. Most of the websites in question were said to be illegally selling and distributing counterfeit sporting merchandise.
Barack Hussein Obama’s Georgia counsel, Michael Jablonski, had stated that it was “unreasonable1” to expect Obama to attend the ballot challenge hearing in Atlanta on January 26 at 9:00 a.m. ET.The White House has been posting Obama’s activities day by day this week2, and the schedule now reflects that his schedule was open on Thursday morning.
However, The Post & Email has been told by a source that Obama watched the entire hearing remotely. Is that why his morning schedule was open?At the beginning of this week, the presidential schedule was devoid of entries3.
Various external reports were published each morning stating that he planned a trip to the West beginning on Wednesday following his State of the Union address. Currently, the schedule shows4 that he spent time in Nevada on Thursday and then flew to Michigan for an address on Friday morning.During the early afternoon hours on Friday, Obama went to Cambridge, MD and was scheduled to return to the White House at 3:00 p.m. for a 3:30 meeting with Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton5.

For more than two years, the Michigan Education Association has had a manual that urges its members to use students as propaganda in contract negotiations and also lays out how to organize strikes, which are illegal in Michigan.
A 28-page manual, “Building Full Capacity Locals — Crisis Planning, It’s Never Too Early To Start!” has one section that reads: “Strikes: Aren’t They Illegal?” and follows with a civil disobedience quote from Mahatma Gandhi. The manual appears to have been created in July of 2009.
“What’s really troubling about this publication isn’t what’s inside, it’s right there on the cover. This organization has decided it is above the law that has empowered them so much in so many other ways,” said Paul Kersey, director of labor policy at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, in an email. “We have given them the authority to represent employees who individually may not support them, and to collect dues and agency fees from them and have them fired if they refuse. But the union does not feel it is bound by the law’s prohibition of government strikes.”
The manual states that the “MEA … supports and defends its members who engage in a strike.” It also says that not all job actions are strikes. It offers advice on how to pull off “Work-To-Rule” actions where employees refuse to do anything outside of what is included in their contract.
“Understand that a local is limited only by its collective imagination when it comes to specific work-to-rule actions,” the manual states. “If you carefully examine your contract you will probably find a number of work-to-rule opportunities. Keep in mind, however, that you don’t want to violate the contract or past practice; you want to adhere to it … exactly!”
Doug Pratt, spokesman for the MEA, didn’t respond to an email seeking comment.
One section of the manual appears to quote almost verbatim Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” — a handbook for community organizing. Alinsky’s book includes: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
“Don’t resist – you’ll just make it worse.”
Until recently, the only people expected to make that demand of their innocent victims were rapists and police officers. Fortunately, women are no longer expected to submit to sexual assault, but rather to fight back by whatever means are available – unless the assailant is one of the State’s costumed enforcers, in which case resisting sexual assault would be a felony.
Prison Guards vs. Teachers: Who Is Worth More?

Boortz wrote a letter to the editor saying prisons enjoyed more luxuries and received more funding than public schools in Michigan.
But Michigan’s teachers probably wouldn’t want to make that transition considering they make on average about $12,200 more a year than prison guards.
…When the President asked her what her sources of information were that she was quoting from, she said, “From a blog written by my friend Gerry Ashley… it’s called Grand Rants.” She told me that Obama stared at her and smiled as he wrote it down.
It’s a bit unnerving to know that The President (the most liberal and dangerously close to socialist President in our nation’s history) chose to write down the name of the blog himself. We already know he and his staff are skilled Internet users.
Those of us who have supported Ron Paul since his presidential run in 2008 (and some who supported him long before that) have come to expect an astonishing array of mainstream media tricks, lies, and censorship when it comes to the “journalistic” examination of the good doctor.
This doesn’t mean, however, that we have ever or will ever come to ACCEPT this consistent trend of deception and disinformation as a forgone conclusion of our political lives.
We will never throw up our hands and walk away from the mess the MSM has deliberately created, because that is exactly what they would like us to do; give up, shut up, go home, vote for Romney (an establishment crony with the creepy grin of a pedophile), and watch him lose to Obama (yet another establishment crony) in 2012.

Why Hillary Clinton Can’t legally Be President
(Re Excerpt: “The Arnold Amendment”)
By John Christian Ryter
In point of fact, about the time this article appeared in 2004, an effort was being made to enact what became known as “the Arnold Amendment” that was purportedly designed to change the laws of the land to provide for naturalized citizens like California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm to legally seek the office of President of the United States. The Arnold Amendment was really the Screw America Amendment since it was covertly designed to legalize Hillary Clinton’s run for the roses.
Since Hillary knows that 60% of the American people—men and women—will never vote for her,
The woman, known only as juror number 12 left her job and went into hiding fearing co-workers would ‘want her head on a platter’.
Her husband said before leaving she told him: ‘I’d rather go to jail than sit on a jury like this again.’
He told NBC News he was worried for her health and had his bags packed ready to leave if his 60-year-old wife’s name gets released.

Ted Nugent: Obama White House Is ‘Mao Zedong Fan Club’
Posted on Sunday, May 01, 2011 12:46:34 PM by maddog55
President Barack Obama and his followers are “anti-freedom, anti-gun, anti-Constitution and anti-Bill of Rights,” gun-loving rocker Ted Nugent blasted during an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV.
“And I’m anti-them,” he added. “But we’ll be clearing house soon, so it’s merely a bump in the road right now.”
Nugent spoke to Newsmax.TV at the NRA‘s annual convention in Pittsburgh, where he gave a speech titled “I Still Believe.” He described the Obama White House as “the Mao Zedong fan club.”
“President Obama is a clueless rookie community organizer,” said Nugent. “That he’s the President of the United States of America is a manifestation of cultural deprivation and cultural disconnect and abandonment.
“His track record, now that he is the commander-in-chief, has been abysmal.”

Imagine driving in your automobile with your family on a bright, summer day and you hear a police cruiser‘s siren and the officer motions for you to pull over. The police officer walks up to your car and says hello using your full name without seeing your license.
Not only that, he requests your cellular phone, and within seconds knows your home address, workplace, work-related telephone numbers, pictures and personal Internet information. Welcome to the 21st Century.
If what’s happening in Michigan becomes the model for the rest of the country, Americans are in for a big surprise when they discover their secrets aren’t so secret anymore thanks to modern technology, say national security and civil rights professionals.
Last week, Judge Lawrence P. Zatkoff, a federal district court judge in Michigan, dismissed a constitutional challenge to the U.S. Government’s bailout of AIG, which used over a hundred million dollars in federal tax money to support Islamic religious indoctrination through the funding and promotion of Sharia-compliant financing SCF.
SCF is financing that follows the dictates of Islamic law. The challenge was brought by the Thomas More Law Center TMLC, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and co-counsel David Yerushalmi, on behalf of Kevin Murray, a Marine Corps veteran of the Iraqi War. TMLC filed a notice of appeal immediately after the ruling and will be seeking review of the decision in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit………………………

Sparing no arrow from his rhetorical quiver, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia fired away in dissent of Monday’s 6-2 ruling that puts a Michigan man back on the hook for a drug murder and casts doubt on the reach of a hallmark opinion penned by the court’s longest serving member.Scalia called Monday’s decision a “mistake,” “patently incorrect,” “incoherent” and a “gross distortion of the law.”Over time, all members of the high court have been subjected to Scalia’s caustic writings.
This time it was Justice Sonia Sotomayor who was responsible for articulating the court’s position–joined by five of her colleagues–that the comments made by a victim hours before he died were admissible during the trial of his shooter.The decision drew a fiery response from Scalia who said the ruling “distorts our Confrontation Clause jurisprudence and leaves it in a shambles. Instead of clarifying the law, the Court makes itself the obfuscator of last resort.”Excerpt Read more at foxnews.com …

“INVESTIGATIVE SUBPOENA” LAW GAVE THE POWER TO PROSECUTORS AND JUDGES
by Sharon Rondeau
Michigan became part of the United States in 1837Oct. 30, 2010 — During the last several months, The Post & Email has been focusing on the absence or corruption of grand juries at the county and state level throughout the country. Here a resident of the state of Michigan describes how he attempted to obtain a grand jury hearing in 2009 and discovered that there had not been a grand jury convened in his county for more than a decade due to the passage of the “Investigative Subpoena” statute by the Michigan legislature in 1996.An article from a 2002 Michigan Law Review provides a description of the Investigative Subpoena statute’s purpose and function as compared to the “grand jury” method of investigation:…Michigan does have some archaic grand jury statutes still on the books-statutes which are rarely utilized because they are cumbersome, expensive and require extensive judicial involvement.
However, in 1995, the Michigan Legislature passes [sic] the Investigational Subpoena law that became effective on January 1, 1996. This law has given prosecutors and police a tremendous new ability to solve some of the most difficult crimes, by expanding their pre-charging powers, while retaining many of the protections of the old grand jury laws, insuring both judicial scrutiny, and individual rights.
A single, 31-year-old woman in Michigan who posted a note on her church bulletin board seeking a “Christian roommate” to share her residence has been cited by the state for violating the Fair Housing Act by discriminating against those of other faiths.
The complaint signed by Tyra Khan, a “Civil Rights Representative” of the state of Michigan Department of Civil Rights, surfaced when the Alliance Defense Fund announced today it was representing the woman.ADF spokesman Joel Oster confirmed the organization sent a letter to the state explaining that such housing rules don’t apply to people living in their own homes and wanting to share their resources.Find how what happens when the government steps over the line, in “Constitutional Chaos””[Tricia] is a single lady looking for a roommate. She is not a landlord. She does not own a management company. She does not run an apartment complex. She is a single person seeking to have a roommate live with her in her house,” the letter said.”She is not prohibited by either federal law or state law from seeking a Christian roommate.
