    White Republican voters chose a black conservative over a white billionaire in Michigan.  How can that be?  Democrat Andre Carson of the Congressional Black Caucus said the Tea Party (conservatives and Republicans) is racist and wants to see blacks "hanging on a tree."  Folks, as a black Tea Party activist since 2008, I can tell you this is the evil slander of salt-of-the-earth patriotic white voters I have been fighting.  Black conservative John James won Michigan's U.S. Senate Republican primary because he shares the values of most Americans.  James boldly expresses his desire to help Trump Make America Great Again.  Voters chose James because of...

    President Trump blasted Pakistan in his first tweet of 2018, saying its leaders have given the U.S. nothing by lies & deceit. The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools, he said Monday morning. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more! he added. The New York Times reported late last week that the Trump administration might withhold $225 million in aid over frustration with...

Pensler also criticized the way Trump speaks, saying he spoke at a fourth grade level.

    In 2018, conservative Republicans are looking forward to challenging ten incumbent Senate Democrats in states President Donald Trump won in 2016, in hopes of defeating them with bona fide conservatives.

    Lena Epstein, co-chairwoman of Donald Trump's Michigan campaign, has announced her candidacy for U.S. Senate. If Epstein wins the Republican nomination in 2018, she would be up against U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, who first won her Senate seat in 2000 and won easy re-elections in 2006 and 2012. Epstein is the first Republican to declare candidacy for the seat. A 35-year-old Bloomfield Hills resident, Epstein is co-owner of Vesco Oil Co., a distributor of automotive and industrial lubricants. The company has more than 200 employees and annual revenues of $175 million, according to Epstein's personal website. In a press release...
  • Odds on GOP retaining Senate in 2018

    11/15/2016 8:19:59 PM PST · by Degaston · 17 replies
    The Republicans have 8 seats, Dems have 23 seats, and the 2 Dem-leaning Independents are in this Class. With 44 seats in the other 2 classes for the GOP and Pence as VP this means the Dem's have to pick off 3 seats to get the majority. Utah Hatch, Texas Cruz, Nebraska Fischer, Mississippi Wicker, and Wyoming Barrasso are about as close as possible to being done-deals that their seats stay GOP in 2018. Picking off Corker in Tennessee would be super hard to do. Flake in Arizona could be vulnerable depending on fallout with immigration enforcement. About the only...

    Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan tells Yahoo News that she believes race was a factor in the state's slow response to the Flint water crisis. "The sad, outrageous reality is that people were not paying attention to what the residents were saying because they weren't a priority," Stabenow told Yahoo News and Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga. "[The state] would react differently when their friends that lived in those areas called ... that's just a fact that [Flint was] treated differently than others would be treated." ...

    Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) delivered a pitch-perfect trolling lesson to the Senate on Wednesday, filing an amendment calling to defund "the purchase of stationary [sic] or electronic devices for the purpose of members of Congress or congressional staff communicating with foreign governments and undermining the role of the President as Head of State in international nuclear negotiations on behalf of the United States." In other words, Stabenow wants to defund Tom Cotton letters.

    EMINENCE At the same time U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell toured Eastern Kentucky lauding his work on the passage of the Farm Bill, the Democratic chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee told a crowd in Henry County that she forgot McConnell was even on the committee. Now, the reason that I had forgotten that is because he has never attended a meeting in the three years I have chaired the committee, U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Michigan. Stabenow stumped for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes in Kentucky farm country Monday afternoon and later at a town-hall style meeting in...

    Michigans U.S. senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow are among those urging the Army Corps of Engineers to allocate money to help the Great Lakes recover from Hurricane Sandy damage. While the Great Lakes navigation system is threatened due to underfunding, which has been worsened due to lakes levels that have hit record lows, the system also was damaged by Hurricane Sandy, a group of Midwest senators wrote in a letter Thursday to Assistant Secretary of the Army Jo-Ellen Darcy. This storm covered 900 miles, and impacted 24 states, including states surrounding the Great Lakes. Across the Great...

At the time, the company was promoted heavily by President Barack Obama, U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm and U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow. Since then, A123 has shed money, laid off half its workforce, recalled products and seen its stock price plummet to about 26 cents this week from a previous high of $26. Now, just two years after the initial roll-out, A123 is...
