Parents Protest At High School - Transgender Male Wants Access To Girls Bathroom / Locker Room!

Students walked out of class on Monday morning over a transgender pupil’s right to use the women’s locker room. About 200 Hillsboro High School in Hills students held their demonstration after 3rd period for about two hours.

There were two groups of demonstrators.  One on the side of transgender student Lila Perry using the female facilities.  The other group wants her to use the faculty’s gender neutral restroom.

Students protesting longer than two hours could face an in school suspension. Superintendent Aaron Cornman to issued a statement that says in part:

“There does come a point when the school day must continue and we cannot condone behaviors that detract from the overall mission of the district.

Actually Superintendent, the school day cannot continue when students feel their safety is at risk.  This is not about political correctness it is about the safety of female staff and students!

Transgender student, Lila Perry, identifies as female. She started using the female facilities at Hillsboro High School starting this school year. She came out last February and used the gender-neutral faculty restroom for gym class last semester.

Parents are saying that their daughters are uncomfortable with the situation. Even though Perry wears dresses and a wig, she is still physically a male.

Last Thursday’s school board meeting had to be moved into the gym after many parents showed up. The topic wasn’t on the agenda but it was clear why they were at the meeting after thunderous applause broke out after one parent spoke.

Derrick Good, a parent of two girls at Hillsboro and an attorney said, “They should have the ability to do whatever they need to do in the privacy of the bathroom without having a male in there.”
Perry said she’s been attacked on social media and fears bullying and violence if she were to start using the boys’ restroom now.

It’s unclear when and if the school board will make a decision on this. Members of the school board said they cannot comment on the matter.

Personally I would not want someone of the opposite sex in my daughter's or son's locker room or bathroom.

Over 20,000 March Including Alveda King March For #AllLivesMatter In Birmingham

Over 20,000 marchers Led by conservative activist and talk show host
Glenn Beck marches with Alveda King and Rafael Cruz
Glenn Beck and Martin Luther King’s niece Alveda King,   chanted "All Lives Matter".  The group marched the historic civil rights route from Kelly Ingram Park to Birmingham Alabama City Hall Saturday .

Actor Chuck Norris, a conservative activist known for his martial arts, action movies and TV show "Walker, Texas
Chuck Norris
Ranger," marched about two rows behind Beck. Alveda King, a niece of civil rights activist the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., marched in the front row. Bishop Jim Lowe, pastor of the predominantly black Guiding Light Church in Birmingham Alabama, co-organized the march with Beck and marched with him at the front. As a child, Lowe attended Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, where the march started, a headquarters church for the civil rights movement in Birmingham. Lowe and his sisters were in the church when a KKK bomb blew up the church and killed four little girls on Sept. 15, 1963.

"It's about taking our church out in the streets," Beck said. He
Rafael Cruz
Father of Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz
said marchers came from as far away as China, Dubai and the Netherlands.

Marchers held "All Lives Matter" signs and others such as "Justice" with a picture of Abraham Lincoln and "Courage" with a picture of Frederick Douglass. A blimp flew overhead with the Twitter hashtag and slogan "#All Lives Matter."

It is not just about #BlackLivesMatter, #AllLivesMatter including #CopsLivesMatter .

By Executive Order Obama Takes Another Piece Of American History - Changes Name Of Historic Mountain

President Barack Obama says he's changing the name of the
tallest mountain in North America from Mount McKinley to Denali by executive order.
He's  giving the mountain its  Alaska Native name on the eve of a historic presidential visit to Alaska.
Denali is an Athabascan word meaning "the high one." 

The mountain officially known as Mount McKinley from 1917 until 2015, is the highest mountain peak in North America, with a summit elevation of 20,237 feet above sea level.

The mountain was named after former President William McKinley. There have been several efforts by Alaska politicians change it to Denali. But politicians from McKinley's home state of Ohio have opposed changing the name.
Obama is citing the Interior Department's authority to change the name.

Obama departs Monday for a three-day visit to Alaska  to promote his propaganda on climate change.

Illegal Immigrant / Dreamer Guilty Of Murdering Classmate

A 21-year-old illegal immigrant / "Dreamer"
 has been found guilty in the 2010 slaying of Joshua Wilkenson a Pearland texas teen in 2010.

A Brazoria County Texas jury convicted Hermilo Moralez, who was charged with murder in the beating death of his missing classmate, Josh Wilkerson District Court.

Wilkerson's partially burned remains were discovered in a Fort Bend County field, where his body had been dumped with his hands and feet bound.

The week before Thanksgiving 2010, Wilkerson disappeared after leaving the campus of PACE Center, Pearland school district's alternative high school.

Wilkerson was murdered by an illegal immigrant who, because he came to the country as a minor, would have qualified for Obama’s 2012 executive amnesty granted to illegal immigrant minors — or so-called DREAMers, whom Obama insists “belong here.”

Why Trump Won't Commit To Republican Party - Colorado Republicans cancel 2016 presidential caucus vote

If you are wondering why Donald Trump won't commit to not

in Steamboat Springs, Colorado before GOP cancelled the caucus
running for as a third party candidate, here is your answer... 

Colorado will not pick a Republican candidate for president in its 2016 caucus after party leaders approved a little-noticed shift that is likely to diminish the swing state's clout in the most open nomination contest in the modern era.

The GOP executive committee voted Friday to cancel the traditional presidential preference poll at the caucus after the national party changed its rules to require a state's delegates to support the candidate that wins.

 "We just didn't think in this meeting anyway, they should be bound to somebody when there could possibly could be a large number of candidates," said Colorado Republican party chair Steve House.

"I think if there were only a few candidates it would be a different story." he said.

The move makes Colorado the only state so far to forfeit a role in the early nomination process, according to experts, but other states are still considering what to do.

"It takes Colorado completely off the map" in the nomination process, said Ryan Call, a former state GOP chairman.

The Colorado system often favors non-establishment candidates who attract a dedicated following among activists — as evidenced by Rick Santorum's caucus victory in 2012. So the party's move may hurt GOP contenders such as Donald Trump, Ben Carson or Rand Paul, who would have received a boost if they won the state. This move favors the Establishment candidates such as Jeb Bush who is not doing well in the polls.

Colorado will likely remain a swing state - but with no need to campaign so early in the race, our state could get less attention early on.

Walker chastises Boehner for Calling Ted Cruz a "Jackass"

Speaker of the House John Boehner  left attendees at a

Ted Cruz / Scott Walker
Colorado fundraiser for Republican Representative Scott Tipton stunned this week when he called Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz as a “jackass,” to people in attendance.

According to attendees Boehner said that he likes how Cruz’s presidential campaign keeps “that jackass” out of Washington.

That remark rubbed many attendees the wrong way.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker came to the aid of Sen. Ted Cruz Friday.

John Boehner
The Real Jackass
Appearing on "The Hugh Hewitt Show," the Republican presidential candidate called Boehner's reported statement "just wrong."

"I think it's just wrong," Walker said. "Even though I don't know Sen. Cruz as well as I know some of the governors, I've grown to know him and like him and admire him quite a bit out on the campaign trail.

Reporter Rude To Trump Masquerading As A Journalist

Last night leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump held a press conference in
Ramos Heckling Trump
Dubuque, Iowa.  During the press conference Trump was heckled and interrupted by Univision reporter, Jorge Ramos

Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell and MRC Latino Director Ken Oliver-Mendez issued the following statements this afternoon in the wake of Univision/Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos’ crass abandonment last night of professional journalism standards and protocol.

In Dubuque, Iowa, Ramos attended a Donald Trump press conference and launched into a statement-filled (rather than question-filled) diatribe without first waiting to be recognized for a question by the candidate. After Trump refused to address him, Ramos yelled, "I'm a reporter, an immigrant, a senior citizen. I have the right to ask a question."

Tangled Web
Jorge Ramos, Hillary Clinton, Paola Ramos
Jorge Ramos is well known for using his platform at Univision and Fusion to advance a liberal policy agenda. Univision and Ramos, whose daughter, Paola Ramos, works for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, have very close ties to Clinton as well as the Obama administration.

MRC President Brent Bozell reacts:
Jorge Ramos is a pro-amnesty activist masquerading as a journalist. The stunt he pulled at Donald Trump’s press conference reflects poorly on Univision -- again. Ramos is not a 'reporter' nor does he therefore have the 'right to ask questions.' Ramos embarrassed both himself and his profession by becoming the story with his unseemly antics. Those who expect a fair and honest debate on the policy issues impacting the U.S. Latino community should ignore Jorge
Selfie Time
Ramos  & Clinton

MRC Latino Director Ken Oliver-Mendez reacts:

At that press conference, Jorge Ramos clearly crossed the line between reporting and editorializing. His behavior was more akin to that of the transgender amnesty activist who recently interrupted President Obama at the White House, rather than that of a professional reporter. He should know that to the extent he continues to ramp up his advocacy approach to the journalistic profession, he is operating outside the confines of honest journalism and his credibility will deservedly suffer as a result

Vet With No Friends Or Family Has 800 Show Up At His Funeral

There can still be some faith in humanity as acts of kindness
and charity are still around.

Hundreds of people turned out in Lancaster, Kentucky, to provide a military funeral to a United States veteran they didn't even know. 

Vietnam veteran Don Kaas died at age 66 at a VA hospital in late July. 

The hospital was unable to locate any members of the former sailor's family, so an owner of a local funeral home stepped in. 

After the remains went unclaimed for a few weeks, Lancaster Funeral Home owner Shane Young decided to post about it on Facebook. 

He said he was hoping that at least a few people would show up to pay their respects, but the response quickly "snowballed."

"It was an overwhelming response. We knew that night something special was happening," said Young.

With support from local veterans organizations, an estimated 800 people showed up to honor Kaas and provide him with a full military funeral.

Not much is known about Kaas. He served on a submarine during the Vietnam War and later moved to Kentucky because he loved horses.

Breaking: Not Enough Votes To Expel Todd Courser And Cindy Gamrat

Cindy Gamrat / Todd Courser

Sources are stating that Speaker of The House, Republican Kevin Cotter does not have the votes to expel Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat.

The Democrats under Minority House Leader Tim Greimel want an independent investigation.  They want to know why
Tim Greimel
Cotter did not bring the alleged affair and cover up to the attention of the House back in May when it was first reported according to Courser/Gamrat Staffer Josh Cline.

The Democrats are wondering if the Republican Leadership intentionally held this information at hand until it best benefited them.  Was Todd Courser's request to Attorney General Bill Schuette asking him to investigate the questionable Arlen Meekhof - Ron Boji new senate building purchase the reason why this information was now released?

Sex, Lies, Texts and Misuse Of Public Funds - These Are The Days of Our Lansing Legislators

The preliminary findings from a House Business Office probe
Todd Courser / Cindy Gamrat
have come in this afternoon.  The preliminary report states that Michigan state Representatives Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat did misuse  taxpayer funds to attempt to cover up their extra-marital affair.

Addressing the media this afternoon, Director Tim Bolin said, "After completing the investigation, we have preliminary findings of both misconduct and the misuse of taxpayer resources by both representatives."

Bolin continued, "Asking an outside counsel to review the report is a normal process to protect the privacy and confidentiality of affected individuals and ensure compliance with Human Resources regulations.   The findings will be made public once the legal review has been completed."

A little over two weeks ago Courser and Gamrat were exposed for having an extra-marital affair.  A recording leaked to the Detroit News and released by the paper opened up the investigation.

The preliminary finding of the misuse of taxpayer funds comes from Todd Courser asking his staff to send out a false flag e-mail stating he was into male prostitutes and was a sexual deviant picking up these prostitutes all over Lansing.  This e-mail was an attempt to cover up his affair with Gamrat.  

Courser said he came up with the idea after receiving blackmail texts.  His brother Dan has also reported receiving texts as Courser didn't respond to his.  A private investigator has been hired to track down the texter and the results of these findings should be released sometime this week. 

Courser believes that his affair, which was known by Speaker of the House Kevin Cotter since May, came out now as Courser is going after the Senate Majority Leader Arlen Meekhof - Ron Boji Senate Building deal and has asked Attorney General Bill Schuette to investigate a potential "friends and family cronyism deal" that could cost Michigan taxpayers $70 million or more.

According to whistleblower and former staffer Josh Cline, he told Cotter of the affair back in May and it fell on deaf ears.  Cline said he had to resign because of the affair and that his integrity was of utmost importance, in his televised media press conference last Monday.  Just a day later in West Michigan Politics, Brandon Hall reported that Josh Cline had an Ashley Madison spouse cheating site himself.  Which added more fuel to the speculation that Courser and Gamrat where under the microscope because they wouldn't play ball with the "Lansing Mafia" as Courser described.

This story is far from over as more twists and turns are surely going to come out in the next days and weeks.

It Is Time To Stop The #BlackLivesMatter Protest Disruptions

I don’t know about you but I have had my fill with these
#BlackLivesMatters Takes Over Bernie Sanders Stage
#BlackLivesMatter protests.  Seems like they think they are the only lives that matter. 

All across the country they are disrupting  traffic and business commerce with their protests and looting. 

Recently they have attacked at Bernie Sanders presidential campaign rally and have threatened to attack more campaign rallies.

Now they intend to start attacking State Fair’s this late summer and early fall.  Will law enforcement start enforcing laws or will chaos and anarchy continue to rule?

Black Lives Matter has announced plans to “shut it down” and protest the first Saturday of the Minnesota State Fair.

The protest, called “#Blackfair”, will march at Hamline Park in St. Paul at 11 a.m.

“Join us for #BlackFair, where we will continue to make our voices heard as we continue to fight for justice and bring white supremacy to an end,” the group said in the Facebook event description.

As of Friday morning, over 100 people confirmed they are going on the event page.

The #BlackLivesMatter so called movement has done much more harm to race relations than it has helped.

Courser - Gamrat Affair Whistleblower Sought Extra-Marital Affair Himself

If you are going to throw stones at one who has sinned, you
Josh Cline Press Conference
better be sure you have not committed the same sin yourself.

Normally affairs themselves are not newsworthy but when you set a high standard and feel you are step above the next person that is one you find yourself in trouble . 

According to a report by Brandon Hall of  West Michigan Politics, Josh Cline who was a former aide to state representatives Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat, is among the millions of users whose information was released this week by hackers of the cheating website Ashley Madison.  It should be noted that West Michigan Politics was the outlet that first broke the Courser Gamrat affair as well.

The Ashley Madison website is a place for those currently married to seek an extra-marital affair. 

West Michigan Politics went over hacked data from Ashley Madison, which apparently indicates that an address in Attica, Michigan has been a subscriber of the website for at least three years. Going over Lapeer County records, it was discovered that the address is registered to Cline, who is married.

The discovery of Cline possibly now having had an affair himself with his three year subscription through the cheating website casts doubt on the sincerity of his press conference this past Monday.    

In that press conference, which many said looked more like a
"Hi Mom I am on TV" moment as it lacked any new substance as well as appearing scripted and contrived, Cline made a powerful statement on why he quit his staffer position at the Courser - Gamrat legislative offices.  He said "It was not an easy task to choose integrity over a paycheck. But I chose to preserve my integrity and resign effective immediately," He continued. "Having chosen integrity over continued employment in a hostile, untenable work environment in which I was required to turn a blind eye to unethical behavior in the offices of Courser and Gamrat, I am confident I did the right thing."  With the discovery of Cline's Ashley Madison account, Cline's integrity seems to be thrown out like yesterday's trash. 

It was odd that Josh Cline was even a staffer for Todd Courser. Cline himself is a long time political operative for the Republican party, often was found associating with those that were either establishment or anti-tea party.  Cline most recently attempted to run for State School Board in 2014 and in 2012 was involved in the Pete Hoekstra for campaign.  (hat tip to Bill Hartmann of the 12th District for that reminder)

Just As We Thought The Gas Tax Increase Isn't For The Roads

You can blame Obamacare and Governor Rick Snyder for our roads not being repaired.
Senator Patrick Colbeck

Governor Snyder stepped into it, as they say, when he pushed through the Medicaid Expansion also known on the radio at the Healthy Michigan Plan. 

By offering free medical care to some it is we the taxpayers that have to pay for it.   This is nothing more than distribution of wealth and fits the classic definition of socialism.

To now pay for this medicaid expansion Governor Rick Snyder is pushing for a gas tax increase.  The voters in May of this year shot down a tax increase by an overwhelming margin of 80%.

State Senator Patrick Colbeck, who has a plan to fix our roads without raising our taxes confirmed this today in a facebook post of his:

"Many of you are wondering why it is so difficult to pass legislation that would fix our roads. Simple answer...some people insist upon it being about much more than roads. According to Gongwer News Service (not yet addressed in SE MI papers), one of the sticking points in the most recent negotiations revolved around increasing the Health Insurance Claims Assessment (HICA) tax. "What does HICA have to do with roads" you say? HICA revenue goes to pay the state portion of Medicaid payments. OK...what does Medicaid have to do with roads?

The short answer is that some people in state government are relying upon a tax increase to backfill gaps in Medicaid funding with the same money that the House and Senate plans have already earmarked for roads. This problem becomes exacerbated in 2017 due to the passage of Medicaid Expansion (i.e. Section 2001 of HR 3590 otherwise known as Obamacare). In 2017, the Federal government will no longer provide 100% of the funding for the expanded Medicaid population.

So...if you are wondering why it is so difficult to fix our roads, look no further than Medicaid Expansion. The good news is that I have offered solutions to both Medicaid Expansion and our Roads that protect you from tax increases."

Another Lansing legislator State House Republican Peter Lucido of Shelby Township also has a plan to fix our roads without raising taxes.  

Between these two plans we should be able to fix our roads.  As for the Medicaid expansion problem?  That is something Governor Rick Snyder will have to figure out.  That plan was forced upon the people of Michigan after it failed on the first vote.  And now that the people of Michigan are seeing that the Medicaid Expansion is holding up our roads being repaired, I would have to believe it is even less popular than it was two years ago. 

Deez Nuts for president? Independent candidate has strong showing in polls

Deez Nuts is a phrase created by rapper Dr. Dre many years
Deez Nuts coming strong at 9%
ago to annoy or frustrate someone, usually it means you are just joking.

Well a 15 year Iowa old farm boy took this saying and turned it into a presidential candidate.  Everyone took the bait hook line and sinker. 

The candidate polling at 9 percent in North Carolina against Trump and Clinton isn’t a real person. But Brady Olson, who gamed the FEC filing system, certainly is.

Deez Nuts, the Independent candidate from Iowa, is polling at 9 percent in North Carolina for President of the United States.

“When I heard about the Limberbutt McCubbins story, I realized I could,” Olson said.

Brady Olson is 15 years old. He filed to run for the President of the United States with the FEC on July 26 as Deez Nuts.

According to a Public Policy Polling survey released Wednesday, almost one in 10 Tar Heel State voters would vote for him in a race between Nuts, Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton.

(Limberbutt McCubbins, by the way, is a cat from Kentucky seeking the Democratic nomination for president.)

Perhaps the 2nd most important thing to take away from this story is that Donald Trump is beating Hilary Clinton by 2 points in North Carolina.

Founder of #BlackLivesMatter Is White - You Can't Make This Stuff Up

Shaun King, one of the founders of “Black Lives matter” is really white.  Investigators looking into his background have produced evidence that King is white.  

King has called himself biracial.  His mother is white and he said his father was white.  

That’s not what his birth certificate says.  The birth certificate verifies that his father was white.  

 Breitbart news checked with Kentucky Department of Vital Statistics and confirmed that fact.

If being black is so bad, why are so many white people pretending to be black?

Courser Gamrat Affair Known For Months - Announced Now To Hide Bad Perhaps Illegal Land Deal

This morning radio hosts Trucker Randy Bishop and Brian
Trucker Randy Bishop & Brian Summerfield
Your Defending Fathers Radio Show
Sommerfield on Your Defending Father's Radio on 94.5 fm in Petoskey Michigan stated that timing of the State Representative Cindy Gamrat and State Representative Todd Courser affair was to deflect and stop an investigation of the unnecessary purchase of the new Senate Building which was purchased 3 times over the market value.  The building was assessed to be valued at $12 Million but yet the state is purchasing it for over $41 million.

The move, proposed last year by then Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville (R-Monroe), would move senators into renovated office space while other state departments are being told to brace for cuts.

"You can question motives and you can question everything," Richardville told Channel 7's Ross Jones in November, "but this is a damn good business decision."

Richardville left the Michigan Senate at the end of last year
Ron Boji
due to term-limits, but not before choosing a proposal submitted by Lansing developer Ron Boji as the senate's future home. The state has agreed to purchase his building, called Capitol View, for $41 million and is seeking $70 million in state bonds to finance the deal, but now some accounts are saying the final cost to the taxpayers of Michigan could reach $140 million.  According to the Lansing Assessor's Office the building is only worth $12 million and the Assessor's office has publically stated that the overpriced purchase will not  inflate the property values in and around the area.  

In order to pay for the new senate building it will need to be OKed and financed through bonds from the state through the Michigan Strategic Fund.  Ron Boji was appointed by Snyder to be on that board.  How is this not a conflict of interest?

What was the reason for the need to purchase the new building?  "The main reason given for seeking the new digs, according to testimony by Senate Secretary Carol Vivendi last year, is so every senator’s office would enjoy a clear view of the state capitol."

 A major campaign donor of the Republican Party stands to profit handsomely from this move. Who is that donor? Ron Boji, a big donor to state Republican politicians who was also appointed by Governor Snyder to serve on the Michigan Strategic Fund.

Over the past 7 years, Boji alone has contributed almost $80,000 to the Republican state senate campaign committee, the Michigan Republican Party, and the election efforts of Snyder as reported on the Frank Beckmann Show on WJR 760am in Detroit.

11th District Congrssman Dave Trott and State Representative Clint Kesto
Funneling taxpayer dollars to a wealthy campaign contributor is a classic example of corporate welfare and crony capitalism. This happens all too often in Lansing. Our Senators are attempting to reward a campaign contributor while bilking taxpayers out of $70 million in order to move to an office building that is 50 yards closer to the Capitol Building.  

In late June of this year, embattled State Representative Todd Courser drafted a letter asking Attorney General Bill Schuette to investigate the purchase of the new Ron Boji Senate Building.    According to Randy Bishop and Brain Summerfield of your Defending Fathers Radio, Courser said the letter was never forwarded to Bill Schuette.  Was this the reason why Courser and Gamrat's staff were fired?  Why didn't they complete the letter but instead release the recording of Todd Courser admitting to a false flag e-mail to hide his affair with Gamrat instead? 

According to information Randy Bishop and Brian Summerfield compiled, they surmised that most in Lansing, including State House Speaker Kevin Cotter, knew of the Courser Gamrat affair months prior to the the Detroit News story last week.  Why then didn't this information come out sooner?  Was it because Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat were to release a letter  to the Attorney General Bill Schuette this week asking him to open an investigation into the purchase of the new senate building?    

It also appears that the questionable senate building deal in Lansing wasn't the first time Ron Boji's company made millions off the state with a real estate deal.   

 Ron Boji's brother Nader Kakhouri, who is under investigation with the Feds in his position with the former Wayne County Executive Bob Ficano, who is also under investigation.

Ron Boji and his family have been some of Robert Ficano's most reliable campaign contributors.  Not long ago, Boji held a birthday party fundraiser for Ficano at his sprawling Orchard Lake home.

Ron Boji (right)  Bob Ficano (left)
Ribbon cutting ceremony for new government office in
Hamtramack that Boji's firm built.
Boji's name surfaced in the widening Wayne County scandal back in October of 2011, when the FBI named his company, The Boji Group, in a federal subpoena.  At issue: did his relationship with Ficano's office help land his company federal money for a big development in Wayne County? And did Fakhouri stand to benefit from the deal?

Boji used that federal money to build the Inkster Marketplace, a sprawling two-block, four-building development that couldn't have materialized had it not been for federal funds provided by Wayne County.  It passed along government grants totaling almost $2 million that ultimately went to Boji's company. And the county official who handed over the money?  Fmr. Economic Development Chief Turkia Mullin.

Ron Boji’s company benefited from more than $1.5 million in federal funds to develop the sprawling Inkster Marketplace along Michigan Avenue.

In a December letter, HUD officials asked the county to return $850,000 in grant money because of Boji’s strong ties to then Assistant County CEO
Nader Fakhouri With Bob Ficano
Nader Fakhouri.

Fakhouri, who is Boji’s brother-in-law, received a 20% stake in the building Boji was paid to construct. The Wayne County Commission, which had to sign off on the project, didn’t know about Fakhouri’s stake in the building either.

“We’ve never received any paperwork that shows Nader Fakhouri had an interest in this,” Commissioner Kevin McNamara said.

“It would have raised a huge red flag.”

HUD issued their own red flag, deeming it a “conflict of interest” and saying Fakhouri was “…in a position to potentially influence funding…” that went to him and his family.  

Because of these findings the people of the State Of Michigan deserve a full and fair investigation of where their
Todd Courser / Cindy Gamrat
tax dollars are going.  Are political cronies being paid back for their donations both in positions of appointed power and financial kickbacks?  Although Courser's and Gamrat's behavior was unbecoming to say the least of a State Representative, it is important that the investigation request Course and Gamrat were preparing moves forward. 

 The letter Courser drafted needs to be  signed by every state representative in Michigan and given to the Attorney General Bill Schuette this week.    Will other conservative Representatives such as Lee Chatfield, Gary Glenn and Martin Howrylak take up the cause?  What about your State Rep?  If they refuse to request an investigation in the the Senate Building and the conflicts of interests, then they are also part of the problem.

It Is Time To Build The Wall And Mexico Will Pay For It

There is absolutely no excuse that our southern border with Mexico can not be sealed.  Every other
country in the world defends their borders but us.  As Donald Trump has said, our politicians are stupid! They are also greedy.

Many politicians in both parties are using the illegals for their own self interests over the American people and Mexico loves this.  The illegals are mostly criminals and if not they are criminals once they sneak over that border.   Why should we reward anyone with Citizenship with their first act in our Country is a criminal one?

There are two reasons why our politicians are allowing these illegals in:

1) It is cheap labor almost slave labor for their big money donors.  Many wages are paid under the table so there is no way to verify if these illegals are even making minimum wage.  Why hire an American worker and have to page minimum wage or great plus possibly health benefits, when you can pay an illegal pennies on the dollar?

2) It is all about votes.  The leadership in both political parties aren't concerned about their constituents they are concerned about winning.  That is why you hear politicians on both sides of the isle fighting for amnesty.

Donald Trump has come out and said that if elected he will build the border wall and Mexico will pay for it.  Mexico laughed at Donald saying that are not paying for it.  

The fact is they can and should pay for the wall Did you know that we give Mexico $14 billion a year?  How to do they thank us?  By sending their deadbeats over to us over the border illegally.  You know the murderers, the rapists, the thieves... ETC..

In reality we already built a combination of security walls and fences along 653 miles of roughly 1,900 miles of southern border. It cost us only 7 billion. So,  to build a security wall along the remaining 1,300 miles, it will cost us roughly 14 billion.  On the other hand we are giving Mexico in financial aid 14 billion every year. So just one year of cancelling of the financial aid will pay for the wall. Further, we should cancel financial aid to Mexico altogether and use 14 billion every year to deport people who are here illegally. In year 2,000 we deported 1.86 million illegal aliens. Now we deport only 350,000 per year. With additional funding we can deport all illegal aliens within a short period of time and free between 30-42 million jobs for American citizens. Today we have 94 million Americans, who are not in labor force and need the jobs the illegals are taking for a lot less pay.

Man Poses As Rude Target Customer Service Rep Answering Consumers Questions

After Target announced that they would be making their toy section
Mike Melgaard
“gender neutral,” there was quite an angry response from shoppers, who took to the retail giant’s Facebook page to voice their disgust.

That’s where an opportunistic Mike Melgaard came in. Posing as an official Target customer service account, he began fielding complaints from customers.

All Melgaard needed to fuel outrage and confusion was a Facebook account he created called Ask ForHelp that sported Target’s bullseye logo. Ask ForHelp was obviously not verified, but most people didn’t care, interacting with Melgaard and growing increasingly irate as he trolled their gender neutral hatin’ ways. Ars Technica points out that “rather than checking for a verified blue checkmark,” they believed that Ask ForHelp was legit at first glance and sought repeatedly to report him to Target overlords. When Melgaard screencapped his shenanigans and posted them to Facebook, the prank went viral.

It is unknown the financial impact on Target at this time by Mike Melgaard's stunt.  Below are screen captures of his stunt.
