    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    A Little Reminder Of What We Face

    One of those incredibly important races this November is the race to preserve our electoral protections.  Keeping a strong Secretary of State is necessary to have a chance against the "vampire like death throes" the Michigan Democrat party is sure to go through.  Click HERE if you want to know what I saying..

    The Democrats cannot be trusted with such a task as securing our ballots.  particularly OAKLAND County DEMOCRATS and their choice Jocelyn Benson.  If they will lie to you BEFORE they are elected, surely one would not expect them to be straight up AFTER the fact.   The Fake tea party fiasco was a perfect example of the disrespect for voters the Democrats in Michigan truly have.  The Secretary of State as their "top of the ticket" Really drives it home.

    However, money talks, and the forces in play are not merely driven by the apple dumpling gang in Oakland County alone.  They have help..  Big Money help.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Bernero, Benson and Leyton? Only if we let them...

    This is a big election year.  

    Only eight weeks from today here in Michigan we will head to the polls and elect a new Governor and Lieutenant Governor, a new Secretary of State, a new Attorney General, an entirely new state House and Senate, members of the Michigan Supreme Court, members of boards of education and boards of regent and local office holders across the state.

    Everything is on the table and up for grabs and the differences couldn't be bigger between Republicans and Democrats.

    We've got a choice for governor between Rick Snyder and America's angriest mayor, Virg Bernero, a man whose platform seems to consist of three plank--shout louder than anyone else, do everything under the sun to empower Big Labor and set up a state-run bank (because state government seems to run everything else so well).

    We've got a choice for Secretary of State between Ruth Johnson and Jocelyn Benson, a near carbon copy of Jennifer Granholm.  The only difference real between Benson and Granholm is that Benson is significantly more liberal.  

    And then there's the choice for Attorney General between Bill Schuette and David Leyton, a county prosecutor in Flint where violent crime has skyrocketed on his watch.  David Leyton seemingly never saw a violent crime case he wouldn't plea bargain. Sure, maybe you plea bargain some first offenses to keep the courts from clogging up. But when you're the Prosecutor in the most violent city in the state -- a city on track for a record setting number of murders this year -- business as usual is not good enough.

    Leyton has been such a failure that this past year community leaders in Flint have called for the National Guard to be deployed to curb the continuing violence.

    Three choices.  Each of them no choice at all.

    And with the Governor, the Senate and the Supreme Court handling redistricting that will go a long ways to determining control of the legislature for the next decade, the stakes this year couldn't be any greater.

    But you know all of that.  The question for each of is is what are we going to do about it?

    It's going to take our combined effort again this year to make sure Michigan turns the corner away from the Democrats' record shattering tax hikes, nation's worst unemployment rates and big-government liberalism.  

    Pick a race.  Blog about it.  I'll pledge here and now to do that myself.  You can expect to see me here every single week between now and the election talking about the critical races facing each of us.  I hope you'll join me.

    And then call one of the campaigns and get involved.

    Let's show the Democrats-- who've given us more dangerous streets, higher unemployment, higher taxes and bigger government-- that enough is enough.

    Credit Where it is Due

    The Ivory Tower this morning has one of the most complete pieces on the Fake Tea Party Fiasco to date.

    More information, more interviews, and an easier to follow trail to the Democrats. Including the following:

    The Free Press found:

    • Mike McGuinness, the recently resigned chairman of the Oakland County Democratic Party, who had denied any role in the Tea Party controversy, recruited his former stepmother to run for state representative.

    • Jason Bauer, 30, of Waterford, former operations director for the Oakland Democrats and McGuinness' roommate, notarized petitions for at least four affidavits to run for office for people who now -- directly or through a relative -- say they didn't sign the affidavits. Overall, he notarized 12 of 23 Tea Party candidate affidavits.

    • State Senate candidate Frantt Whitehill of Midland, who insists he's a real tea partyer, is a Democratic donor who ran for precinct delegate as a Democrat in August.

    The article mentions reporters getting tossed from Mark Steffek's property, the multiple fraudulently filled out affidavits, and an ongoing grand jury investigation.  Add to this a complete and utter denial by Democrat party puppeteer Mark Brewer and would be ballot guard Jocelyn Benson, that they had any connection to the entire attempted vote stealing affair.

    Kudos to the Ivo.. umm Free Press and its crack reporting on this.

    8AM rules committee thing tomorrow.. Some are concerned it will be designed to favor particular candidates.  Hopefully on the up and up.  Chairing it will be Jason Allen.  Fair play gentlemen, is key to restoring trust within the party.  You cannot afford to blow this opportunity, and you may.

    Betty Weaver is on the Bus..  What I find to be a strange event, is the appearance of Elizabeth Weaver at our Traverse city Pick up Spot for the Glenn Beck Restoring Honor Rally Bus heading to DC.  Had the pleasure of an hour long conversation between GR and Okemos, where she boarded the bus to head to the event.  Apparently a big Beck fan.

    Robo Calls suck..  No fewer than 20 Robo calls a day as a reward for becoming a precinct delegate.  Bill Schuette, Michelle McManus and Mike Bishop topped the list. Question.. Do we have a THIRD alternative to the AG nod?

    Non identified emails, and fake websites set up to encourage voting by delegates.. THEMICHIGANREPORT.COM is as fake as reporting blogs go.  Anyone who cannot put their name or normally used moniker on their work is hardly worth paying attention to.  FAIL.

    More below..

    At least when it comes to the fake tea scandal.

    Often we will find ourselves with opposing viewpoints from the Ivory Tower.  There is a point I guess, when things become more than obvious, and "bad" can be called what it is.   Apparently today we are allies:

    If voters' faith has already been shaken by the corruption we've seen in southeast Michigan and the inability of public officials around the state to work together to solve our problems, this Tea Party nonsense rattles it further.

    And how desperate do Michigan Democrats look by trying to pull this off? It's almost an admission that the party's candidates need something other than merit to win this fall.

    The editorial is correct in questioning who planned, financed etc..  

    The lawyer, Michael Hodge, is expected to be challenging the 2-2 decision by the board of canvassers tomorrow.  Who might he present as willing to stand for the party?  Will Mark Steffek show up? What of Jason Bauer, who now bears the tire tracks of Michigan Democrats on his back? Benson and Brewer, and McGuinness, Democrats who have effectively "blanket partied" that fourth stooge at the OCDP sure as heck won't, but will be there in spirit.. to be sure.

    Stay tuned.

    All I can say is I wouldn't want to be the dog waiting to be kicked when the Oakland County Chair gets home.  

    According to the Detroit News, the Oakland County Democrat Party will:

    "review its protocols after reports that a top staffer appears to be among the operatives behind the effort to get Tea Party candidates registered in Michigan.

    County party Chairman Mike McGuinness said operations director Jason Bauer may have crossed the line when he notarized many of the affidavits filed by 23 candidates trying to get on the November ballot as members of the newly formed Tea Party."

    He crossed the line.. the line on the side of the road.  Then he was hit by the bus McGuinness is driving, then backing up.

    My guess is repeatedly..  backing up.
