    There are many of us, perhaps millions, who believe that the Republican party as a governing force has been the lesser of two evils. We fear what the Democrats are doing to destroy the country but we’re angry about what the Republicans aren’t doing to repair the damage. This is why Donald Trump and Ben Carson have been so popular. It’s why so many people are willing to tell pollsters that they support either of the anti-establishment candidates.Thankfully, there’s a third candidate who would stand in stark contrast to the ineffective Republican Establishment that has been harming the party and...
  • Man Arrested in the Murder of Widowed Veteran, 91, Who Was Beaten and Set on Fire

    Police have arrested a suspect in the murder of a 91-year-old Michigan man they say was beaten and then doused with gasoline before he and his home were set on fire. Officials announced that a suspect in the murder of Paul Monchnik was arrested Tuesday, a day after the retired TV repairman and World War II veteran was found dead in his burning northwest Detroit home. "We do have a suspect in custody, and this is just a part of a closed chapter for that family that is still grieving," Detroit Police Chief James Craig said at a news conference....

    This is a big part of what the University of Missouri and copycat racist crybully protests were about. Making racist indoctrination mandatory on campus not only provides jobs and entitlements for the crybullies, but perpetuates the cycle. They got their way at the University of Michigan. The University of Michigan has added a three-year diversity requirement to its Ross School of Business undergraduate curriculum that, among other things, will teach their students how race, gender and sexual orientation "connect to larger systems of power, privilege and oppression." The classes, which include "Identity 101" and "Entering into, Engaging with and Exiting...

    Now, 25 Republican governors – and one Democrat too – have said they don't want Syrian refugees in their states, as President Obama recommitted the U.S. to take a portion of this population fleeing from ISIS. In a press conference this morning in Turkey, Obama said that 'the United States has to step up and do its part,' while chiding those in the opposition party for suggesting there be a 'religious test' for entry into the United States. There's concern, after Friday's brutal attack in Paris, that ISIS fighters are infiltrating those fleeing Syria and will carry out future violence...

"Given the terrible situation in Paris, I've directed that we put on hold our efforts to accept new refugees until the U.S. Department of Homeland Security completes a full review of security clearances and procedures," Snyder said in a statement released to media Sunday.

Micro-units, the planning commission’s solution for people who make too much money to qualify for subsidized rent yet not enough to afford new, market-rate apartment, must be 475 square feet or smaller and be incorporated into a mixed-use commercial building, according to MLive....

Immediately one of the Muslims has caused controversy by showing himself to be somewhat less than the tolerant multiculturalist that he was no doubt assumed to be. Will we see any supremacist and pro-Sharia initiatives from this city council? Only if they decide to “show the Polish and everybody else.” The local multiculturalists, however, are still willfully unaware of Islamic supremacism and confident that everyone can work together.

    Christians have just won a major legal battle. First, the backstory: For several years, it has become standard operating procedure for Christians to be threatened and attacked by Muslims at the Dearborn Arab Festival. Christians have also been threatened by the police and have been arrested for exercising their right to free speech. This piece is about an attack that occurred in 2012. (See here for video.) Now, three years later, after initially losing the court case, they’ve won a victory. Robert Muise and David Yerushalmi of the American Freedom Law Center report:

    Snip....... Dr. Mark Christian, a former child imam born into a prominent Muslim family in Egypt who later broke away from the Islamic faith and became a Christian, said the key actors driving the backlash against Muslim immigration are the Muslims themselves. They are using their Twitter accounts on a daily basis to communicate their agenda of hatred against Jews and Christians, and by their actions in Europe, in Israel and throughout the Middle East where they are killing non-Muslims, Christian said. People are afraid when they see what Muslims are doing on a regular basis in their own countries...

    The suspect first went for the Rojas, who has been working with the department for about two years. When Adams, a 13-year department veteran, stepped in to help her partner, the suspect turned his attention and his weapon to her. Both paramedics were stabbed and slashed repeatedly before making it back to their vehicle. Adams then drove she and her partner to Detroit Receiving Hospital where both remain in serious condition. It was a horrific scene. The EMS rig, the scene inside of the rig is horrific. Their injuries are horrific, Jones said, adding that both paramedics will...

    11 Months before September 11: Secondly, there is other forms of racial profiling that goes on in America. Arab-Americans are racially profiled in what is called secret evidence. People are stopped, and we have to do something about that. My friend, Senator Spencer Abraham of Michigan, is pushing a law to make sure that Arab-Americans are treated with respect. So racial profiling isnt just an issue at local police forces. Its an issue throughout our society. And as we become a diverse society, were going to have to deal with it more and more. I believe, though I believe,...

    "I do a lot of traveling; I would just jump to the border and go to Wisconsin," said Lobello, 47. "I used to buy lottery tickets in Illinois, but I'm not purchasing them anymore. If they're not paying when they say they're going to pay, I have no confidence in the future." As of Thursday, Illinois Lottery payments for any winnings over $600 are being delayed until the state budget stalemate is resolved. Lottery officials said the agency's check-writing account is depleted and no authority can replenish it, though winnings under $600 can still be retrieved immediately at retail kiosks....

    We unfortunately have another police shooting of an unarmed teenage suspect back in the news, though this one took place much earlier in the year. (Before the SJW and BLM get their knickers in a bunch, don’t worry… the kid was white.) Back in February, teenager Deven Guilford was pulled over in Mulliken, located in Eaton County, Michigan. The cause for the stop was the fact that Guilford had flashed his high beams at a cop coming in the opposite direction, so we’re not exactly talking about an international crime spree here. But upon being approached by Officer Jonathan Frost...

    ON THE AFTERNOON of September 26, George W. Bush gathered 15 prominent Muslim- and Arab-Americans at the White House. With cameras rolling, the president proclaimed that the teachings of Islam are teachings of peace and good. (SNIP) And he has done so to their mutual political benefit. During the 2000 campaign, Norquist urged Karl Rove to focus on the Muslim votepointing to, among other things, the thousands of Muslims in the key state of Michigan. By all appearances, the Bush campaign heeded Norquists advice. In an admirable departure from the usual Republican script, Bush frequently integrated mosques into his platitudes...
