Say What? (No .. really not all that surprised - this WAS a 100% Democrat plan after all)
And There are R's in congress about to cave on this?
Former Detroit Mayor and trendsetter Kwame Kilpatrick got what he earned (again) yesterday with a 28 year sentence for being a good Democrat.
In other news, a pay for play [victim] complains:
"Construction company Walbridge wants as much as $5 million in restitution that prosecutors want awarded to Detroit because company officials argue the firm was victimized by Kilpatrick's criminal scheme."Really, we gone THAT far over the edge.
Its even asked:
"Legal expert Peter Henning has said the companies involved in the conspiracy were going to be needed by the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's Office to help prosecute the case and that it's "hard to distinguish" whether the payer of a bribe is also culpable of a crime.God help us.
Yes. GOD help us, as the US justice department would have to set a new standard unseen in the last 5 years; prosecuting itself, and its employer.

Peters is the guy the Dems will be presenting as their choice for US Senate.
This ad mocks Peters Washington record, and abuses the pure Michigan campaign slightly.
Whats not to love?
Bart Stupak was likely the deciding factor in the passage of Obamacare.
Remember this, and the fact that the entire mess we are facing is due to his coalition backing the ACA at a point where it was vulnerable for being recognized as a tool for the baby killers. As a pro-life congressman, he was snookered. Fooled like anyone who capitulates with even a single aspect of the worst legislation that has ever emanated from Washington DC.
And now even while our state senate legislative body considers falling into their own version of bait and switch, there are some on the other side who want a better chance at retaking the governor's seat; and planting the once fooled representative from the UP into it.
"His pals complained that the apparent anointed one, former Congressman Mark Schauer, was not catching fire and that Gov. Rick Snyder might beat this guy. They told Mr. Stupak he was their guy."Wet wood, huh?
Folks, we must remember that memories are short. Stupak would beat Snyder based on that very fact. And the fact he has indicated a non-interest in running? Consider it a courtesy for the time being. This is what the literary world calls 'foreshadowing'.
All the more reason to support a gubernatorial primary challenge on the Republican side.

Yes something that should have been done .. oh perhaps a few years ago.
Solving a number of crimes? Maybe.
The back story is the epic of liberalism allowed to be unchecked in our midst for decades. Priorities of self gratification for Detroit's elected miscreants and bureaucrats has taken its toll.
As for the nerd? We'll have more on him in the next few days.

National Republican Senatorial Committee Communications Director, Brad Dayspring's statement on Rep. Peters reportedly entering the Senate race:
"Gary Peters already lost a statewide campaign and that was before supporting a cap and trade energy tax policy that would effectively put Michigan out of business and ObamaCare which will raise health care costs. It takes a special kind of guy like Peters to ask for a promotion from the very same people that his policies would put out of work.What he said.
It should be noted however, that Peters enters with about $800k to start. Sans a fight in the Democrat primaries, it is likely a sufficient start. Presumed entrant Mike Rogers' reported $1.4 M would be spent down considerably in an expected multi-candidate contest by Republicans.
Rogers seems to have some other baggage to climb over as well.
No one is jamming anything down their throats.
Somehow I doubt that if the Democrats in prison (given a higher incidence of Democrat criminality, I use them in this example) were to claim they should be served no-fat lattes, it would be laughed at. At what point does a political ideology of a prisoner dictate how we feed him or her? From the Ivory Tower:
"A federal lawsuit was filed today against the Michigan Department of Corrections, alleging several Muslim inmates aren't getting enough "nutritional" food during the month-long fast of Ramadan and are being forced to eat foods that violate their religious beliefs."They can eat the swill the others are eating. They ARE criminals, right?
Consider it a part of their debt to society. The Michigan department of corrections should not cave under any circumstance to this type of suit that is meant to undermine the operations of our prisons. Rewarding this group CAIR and the dangerous ideology they represent by acceding to their demands, is unnecessary, and dangerous policy capitulation.
