    (AUDIO-AT-LINK)Indiana Governor Mike Pence brings the campaign spotlight to Macomb County tonight. He'll be speaking at the Lincoln Day dinner in Shelby Township. Organizers say it’s the largest crowd in recent memory for the Lincoln Day dinner, and it’s proof that Macomb County is still fertile ground for the GOP message. Today, Chad Selweski joined us to discuss the political history of Macomb County. He's a former longtime political reporter for the Macomb Daily, now a freelance writer and publisher of the blog Politically Speaking. Macomb County has a long history of conservatism, according to Selweski. In the 1980s, the...

    A ceremony was held Saturday to dedicate a new gravestone for a 7-year-old Michigan boy whose brutal killing more than 80 years ago remains unsolved. Richard Streicher Jr. was murdered in March 1935 in Ypsilanti and his grave in a town cemetery was never marked due to the notoriety of the crime, the Ann Arbor News reports. The boy never returned home after going sledding on a late winter evening. His body was found days later underneath a footbridge near his home with 14 stab wounds. Investigators never found the killer. The Ann Arbor News ran a story about the...

    Wayne-Westland Community Schools has a policy that states that homeschooled students who want to attend a dance such as Homecoming would have to come from an “accredited” homeschool. That would effectively ban homeschoolers from attending dances held by the district since homeschoolers have no reason to be accredited and the state doesn’t require it. Karen Braun, a nationally recognized homeschooling activist in Michigan, said the school district is putting an unfair and unnecessary burden upon homeschoolers. Braun said parents contacted her and said their daughter, a homeschooling student, was invited to the upcoming Homecoming dance within the Wayne-Westland district. The...

    WALLED LAKE, Mich. - There are only 29 days left until the presidential election, and campaign vandalism is in full swing. Hundreds of Donald Trump signs were stolen in Walled Lake, and the mascot of Trump's campaign office was vandalized. The 'Trumpmobile' was mangled Monday night and somebody put a lot of work into the damage. Despite the vandalism, the Walled Lake Trump campaign crew was out in force Tuesday night, doing one of its flash mobs along Pontiac Trail. But when they arrived at the campaign office Tuesday, they discovered that someone had tried very hard to break into...

    YPSILANTI, MI -- More than two weeks after Eastern Michigan University staff discovered racial graffiti spray painted outside of King Hall, students returned to the spot on Thursday, Oct. 6, seeking to create unity and heal as a campus community. While the the spray paint was gone, the pain associated with the incident was still present for many students. A silent protest march organized by EMU student Desmine Robinson, however, aimed to remove some of the tension associated with the hateful act.

    LANSING, MI -- Michigan's presidential vote has been true blue since 1992, but Republicans are hoping that Republican nominee Donald Trump can sway that in November. "I'm on the ground all the time traveling the state and every day I run into voters who are so enthusiastic about Donald Trump, who have never voted Republican, who are changing parties just for him," said Michigan Republican Party Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel. A polling average from Real Clear Politics shows Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's lead narrowing as the race progresses. In a head-to-head Clinton is leading by an average of 4.6 points....

    Attorney General Bill Schuette released an official legal opinion Wednesday that schools operated by the reconstituted Detroit school district may be closed due to poor academic performance. Attorney General spokesperson Andrea Bitely confirmed that the opinion is binding on state agencies. Schuette's opinion rebuffs a contrary legal opinion Gov. Rick Snyder had endorsed. “The law is clear: Michigan parents and their children do not have to be stuck indefinitely in a failing school,” Schuette said in a press release. “Detroit students and parents deserve accountability and high performing schools. If a child can’t spell opportunity, they won’t have opportunity.” Senate...

That was the consensus of the West Michigan Policy Forum, which held its fifth conference in Grand Rapids on Monday. “The status quo is unacceptable and unsustainable and we have a stewardship obligation to leave things better off in the future and you can’t do that unless you deal with these issues,” said David Walker, former comptroller general of the United States and former head of the U.S. Government Accountability Office.

    A recent MIRS report, “State Collects 32% More In Fees Than It Cost to Regulate,” notes that the state brings in $147 million in revenue for licenses and permits. But the total cost to regulate Michigan’s variety of industries was much probably much higher. The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, or LARA, is in charge of overseeing the occupations state law requires to be licensed. In theory, the fees collected for an occupation should pay the cost of regulating that occupation but that rarely works out in practice. According to MIRS, the state gained $25.5 million in revenue...

    If you want to earn some cash in Michigan painting a barn, be prepared to take 60 hours of educational courses and pass a state-mandated test. It will set you back hundreds of dollars in total. But to obtain an amateur pilot’s license, the Federal Aviation Authority mandates only a book and flight test with 40 hours of flight instruction. The state of Michigan licenses nearly 200 occupations, including more than dozen “maintenance and alternations” contractors. But a review of who is required to be licensed and who is able to work legally without state permission is seemingly arbitrary. A...

The issue is back in the news because a limited-government legal foundation announced last month it will represent the Marquette County Road Commission in a federal lawsuit against the EPA. The agency has blocked a plan to build a shortcut road to the Eagle Mine in the western Upper Peninsula. In a phone interview with Michigan Capitol Confidential this week, Sen.

    There will be no statewide questions on Michigan’s ballot when voters head to the polls Nov. 8.

The Bureau of Elections, part of the Michigan Secretary of State, confirmed to Michigan Capitol Confidential that no ballot measures made it to the fall ballot. Ten initiative petitions were filed with the Secretary of State, according to Ballotpedia. Three initiatives that didn’t make the ballot would have legalized recreational marijuana...

As Ford begins plans to build a $1.6 billion auto assembly plant in Mexico for small car production, the company continues to experience the pressure of globalization crushing their American business dreams. Ford was a classic Michigan company, but as Detroit News reported Michael Martinez reports, "It will employ 2,800 at the new Mexican plant by 2020."

    Michigan appears to be about average in access to dental care. There are about 7,700 dentists in the state and over 10,000 dental hygienists. In 2011, there were 6.2 dentists per 10,000 people, exactly the national average. But there is a concerning trend: Michigan’s dentist population skews older than average and the state may be facing a dentist shortage in the near future. Results from a 2011 survey of Michigan dentists reveals the problem. At that time, 37 percent of dentists were between 55 and 64 and another 15 percent were over 65. This means that over half the dentists...

    The Left hates Donald Trump, but nothing has inspired more invective than his outreach to the black community. It’s like he has barged into an exclusive club wearing the wrong color shoes. In a recent column in The New York Times, Charles Blow sounds positively unhinged by Trump’s overture to African-Americans, writing a hate-filled screed that calls the GOP candidate a bigot, a reprobate, and a charlatan whose soul is “dark” and who is “a prime example of the worst of humanity.” And that’s just in the opening paragraphs.

But not by much. Specifically, 50.6 percent of fifth-graders scored ‘proficient’ or better in English, saving the state from having the majority of every grouping of grade and subject branded as less than proficient in English, math, science and social studies. The fifth-graders’ math test was one of 18 grade and subject groupings covering students from third to 11th grade in those four...

    As an old proverb on foreign policy goes, "Only Nixon could go to China." But, after his meeting with an African-American evangelical congregation on Saturday, someday, they might make a similar statement about race relations: "Only Trump could go to Detroit." Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump absolutely stunned the political world with a speech that went directly to the heart of his efforts to reach out to African-American voters. And afterward, a number of African-American faith leaders said they were swayed by his comments. "For centuries, the African-American church has been the conscience of our country," he said. "It's from...

I will take a demotion," said the cameraman. In case the cameraman lost his job, the RSBN network just posted an offer. Hope he accepts! @RSBNetwork: "To the cameraman who told Reuters you'd take a demotion rather than cut feed at #TrumpInDetroit, contact us- we will pay you much better..." 3:00 AM - 5 Sep 2016 · Opelika, AL, United States

    Unhinged: A "journalist" who claims he can discern meanings other than those suggested by a man's words has essentially turned his own imagination into his primary source The media’s Donald-Trump-as-racist narrative is apparently unfalsifiable. No matter what Trump does, it’s proof he’s a racist. If he ignores black voters altogether, that makes him a racist. If he appeals for black votes in front of a largely white audience, as he did a few weeks ago, that’s proof that he’s a racist. And if he actually goes to a majority black area to speak at a mostly black church? That’s the...
