    On July 30, 2017, a 61-Year-Old, mild mannered musician, Darius Summers, walked down to the local gas station for a cup of coffee. He had recently obtained a concealed carry permit. Darius is not a large man.A local miscreant “made” Darius, and saw that Darius was armed. He decided that he would rob Darius of his gun. It was a terrible mistake in the victim selection process. The store video shows what happened. It did not turn out well for the large, armed, thuggish teenager. Darius lulled the suspect into a false sense of security. Then he accessed his...

    Michigan is on the verge of repealing its antique ban on automatic knives.Michigan was the first state to ban switchblades. It was an early test of the power of the post-war media to push emotional, irrational, legislation. The law, which had an exemption for one-armed people, was passed in 1952.The impetus for the ban is believed to have come from a November, 1950 article  by Jack Harrison Pollack. The Toy That Kills was published in  the Woman's Home Companion. Call it propaganda, yellow journalism, muckraking; it had little to do with fact, and everything to do with pushing legislation...

That double trial was during 2013. Jerome Kowalski was convicted and sentenced to life in prison by Judge Brennan. The documents say...

    Hundreds of women showed up for free gun training in Detroit, Mich., on Sunday. The event, which has been held annually for the last six years, saw its best turnout yet. Organizers said about 700 women expressed interest in the training and around 600 attended. The goal, they said, was helping women learn how to protect themselves. "We teach women how to shoot and discharge a firearm, and a personal protection strategy," Rick Ector, the founder of Legally Armed in Detroit and creator of the event, told the Detroit Free Press. "This is an event to see if owning a...

    Under authority granted the agency by the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act of 2016, the EPA just issued a $100 million grant to the beleaguered city of Flint, Michigan, to help in the effort at replacing the city’s badly corroded and lead-tainted system of water pipes. Some progressive critics of President Donald Trump have pointed to his proposed budget cuts at the Environmental Protection Agency as proof that he is a terrible president who doesn’t care about ensuring that Americans have clean air and water. However, the recent report from The Daily Caller about Trump’s EPA grant just...

    Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s Michigan recount unintentionally exposed major voter fraud in Detroit. Election officials in Michigan found that 37% of precincts in Detroit tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books. Hillary Clinton won Wayne County over Donald Trump 67% to 30%. State officials are planning to examine about 20 Detroit precincts where ballot discrepancies occurred. Detroit News reported: Voting machines in more than one-third of all Detroit precincts registered more votes than they should have during last month’s presidential election, according to Wayne County records prepared at the request of...

    Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto on Wednesday that people walk around with floppy disks in order to hack and reprogram voter machines. Stein–who is attempting to launch election recount efforts in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin to contest Donald Trump’s victory–first explained the indicators that people looked for when a machine is suspected of being tampered with or having an error. “So the indicators that they look for if they want to see a machine error or a foul play or tampering, you look for a couple of indicators,” she said. “So one is close...

    The historic Michigan recount has been underway since Monday in a few counties, but it could end December 7 because of a state court of appeals ruling. The next step: A hearing on the recount started at 10:30 a.m. in front of U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith. However, complicating matters, a federal appeals court issued a separate ruling refusing to block Goldsmith’s earlier ruling that the recount should start immediately. The judge now says he will make a ruling in the afternoon.... Will the recount continue? That’s unclear until the latest hearing, but Republicans trying to stop the recount won...

    An Obama appointed federal judge ordered a massive hand recount of 4.8 million ballots in Michigan.... The Detroit News reported: U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith issued a ruling just after midnight Monday in favor of Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, who sought to let election officials bypass a two-business-day waiting period that would have delayed start of the recount until Wednesday morning. Goldsmith’s order said the recount “shall commence and must continue until further order of this court.” “Defendants shall instruct all governmental units participating in the recount to assemble necessary staff to work sufficient hours to assure that...
