Join Jim and Greg as they call out President Biden for his tired act of blaming Russian President Vladimir Putin for our inflation crisis. The war has contributed to the problem, but it was never the main driver of inflation. They also chronicle how Biden is about to completely flip from vowing to make Saudi Arabia a pariah state to begging it to produce more oil. And they shake their heads as two of Michigan’s most prominent GOP candidates for governor fail to make the primary ballot over fraudulent petitions.

Join Greg and Scot Bertram as they appreciate Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett telling Americans to “read the opinion” before getting worked up over the court’s upcoming opinions. They also analyze the effects of Colorado’s newly signed abortion bill, which allows abortions up to the moment of birth, and the hard left shift by Democrats nationally on the issue of life. And they roll their eyes as Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vetoes legislation to clean up the voter rolls of citizens, saying it’s an undue burden on county clerks.

Join Jim and Greg as they react to independent voters turning very negative on President Biden. They also highlight a Michigan audit showing many more nursing home deaths from COVID than Gov. Gretchen Whitmer previously admitted. And they sense Russian military activity could be coming soon in Ukraine as the U.S. considers evacuating the family members of American diplomats there.

 

Michigan Democrats: ‘All Your Children Are Belong to Us’

 

Hey, you know how some people refer to public schools as “government schools” and say that their mission isn’t really education, but social indoctrination and enforcing social conformity? And how other people say, “That’s kook talk. Get away from me, you kook! With your crazy kook talk.” Well, the Democrat Party of Michigan has firmly weighed in on the side of the kooks.

After a brief discussion about outgoing Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam commenting on his blackface yearbook photo, Jim & Greg welcome polls showing just 40 percent of Michigan voters are ready to re-elect Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. They also grimace as year-on-year inflation is the worst in almost 40 years. And they hammer President Biden for saying anyone not supporting the Dems’ plan on elections reform is the equivalent of George Wallace, Bull Connor, and Jefferson Davis.

 

Byron York is in for Jim. Today, Greg and Byron are glad to see New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo losing some of his longtime donors. They also react to a Buzzfeed story about the FBI’s infiltrating militia groups in Michigan leading up to the kidnapping plot against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. But did the FBI only foil the plot or did it push militia members to pursue the idea in the first place? And they reveal how congressional Democrats are planning to pursue an amnesty policy through the massive spending bill they hope to pass this year.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the declining approval numbers for Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and one poll even has her trailing her likely GOP opponent. They also hammer President Biden for not joining three European nations in condemning Iran’s latest nuclear actions and even trying to ease up on sanctions against Tehran. And they roll their eyes as the Biden administration plans to go door-to-door to encourage more Americans to get vaccinated.

Below are pleas from three nurses in Michigan–I got these from a Facebook friend that I respect. The first two posts are from fellow nurses she quoted, and the last post is from her.  These women are in the thick of this battle, so they witness things that most of us don’t see. Their perspective […]

Join Jim and Greg as they shred the blatantly partisan attempt by congressional Democrats to add four more seats (meaning lefties) to the U.S. Supreme Court but welcome House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing she has “no plans” to bring the bill up for a vote. They also react to the new polling showing a sharp drop in public confidence in the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine since the FDA ordered a pause this week. And they examine how Michigan’s COVID numbers are very high but interest in the vaccine is quite low.

Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three crazy martinis. First, they look at Michigan’s terrible COVID numbers and discuss why Gov. Whitmer is asking but not mandating that high schools suspend sports and in-person classes. They also groan as President Biden sets up his special commission to consider changes to the Supreme Court, including the number of justices and how long they should be able to serve. And they’re glad to see all the real problems in the world must be solved since CNN is busy declaring Asian font to be racist.

Two disclaimers; first of all, I am not a lawyer. Second is that I have learned to never assume that any politician is some super-genius executing a plan above my capacity to discern or comprehend. I watched too many people fool themselves with the idea that George W. Bush’s politically disastrous silences were part of […]

Apprently, the Trump Campaign will be filing even more lawsuits come Monday. Sadly, I don’t think the courts, even SCOTUS is going to provide the remedy here. Even if fraud is conclusively proven – and it certainly can be proven – is there a legal remedy that can be ordered, even by the SCOTUS (Roberts […]

Vindication in Michigan: A Victory for the Rule of Law

 

Back in early May, I put up a post entitled Despotism Comes to Michigan, going into some detail concerning Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s seizure of what amounts to dictatorial powers. In it, I suggested two things: first, that the 1945 law under which she claimed to be exercising emergency powers had been replaced by the 1976 law authorizing the legislature to confer on the governor such powers for a limited period of time; and second, that the 1945 law was unconstitutional from the start because it violated the fundamental constitutional principle of the separation of powers by placing the legislative power and the executive power together in the hands of a single person when an emergency had been declared and by leaving the declaration of an emergency to the discretion of that person.

Back in late April, the Michigan Republicans, who control both the state house and the state senate, refused to renew the grant of emergency powers to Governor Whitmer under the 1976 statute and filed suit in state court, arguing that the 1945 act could not be the basis for unilateral action on her part. At the local level and in the appeals court, the Republicans were shot down.

But today, much to my surprise, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that she had violated her constitutional authority by continuing to issue emergency orders after the legislature had refused to renew her powers. And in the process the court ruled that the 1945 act was, as I had suggested, unconstitutional.

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss the stunning hypocrisy of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and her husband and other Democratic governors over Memorial Day weekend.  Greg also shares a very disturbing story about voting by mail in his home state.  They also shudder as President Trump spend time on Twitter trying to implicate MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough in the death of a congressional intern nearly 20 years ago.  And they react to economic officials from the Clinton and Obama administrations admit they are terrified that the economy could be rebounding by Election Day.
