Senate hopeful John James has slashed incumbent Debbie Stabenow’s lead in half. It’s the “Kavanaugh effect” in action – as Stabenow lost 10 points in this latest poll after she voted “NO” on his confirmation. President Trump is planning a rally for James, and Don Jr. and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle are also campaigning for James. wsjm.com Republican U.S. Senate candidate John James is riding the momentum among GOP and independent voters following the bruising confirmation battle of US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. A new poll by Mitchell Research and Communications done as that fight was ongoing shows the West Point graduate and Iraq war veteran has slashed the lead of Democratic U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow in half, from 18 to 9 points. Pollster Steven Mitchell says the surge is despite this year shaping up to be a worst-case scenario for a lot of GOP candidates. “We wanted to take a look at realistically what might happen,” said Mitchell regarding their latest poll. “This shows that John James in the game by cutting that lead in half.” Stabenow leads by a 51-to-42-percent margin, but James leads among independents. He says he’s connecting with Michigan farmers as businessmen and is gaining support despite most agriculture organizations in the state endorsing Stabenow. “When I go, I talk to them about trade, I talk to them about labor and I talk to them about regulations and barriers they have to success. We relate on that level, and you’re beginning to see that traction.” James and Mitchell made their remarks at an event during which the candidate received the endorsements of the Michigan Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. James has had the backing of the White House since the primary, and Vice President Mike Pence has been in the state twice so far to campaign for him. He is seeking to become the first African-American U.S. Senator ever from Michigan, and the first Republican from the state in the Senate since Stabenow ousted incumbent Spencer Abraham 18 years ago. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ◆ Latest news videos: http://bit.ly/2Kn8KeN ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ★ CONNECT WITH US ★ ◆ Google+: http://bit.ly/2LPVNjq ◆ Email: email@example.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Videos can use content-based copyright law contains reasonable use Fair Use (https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/)

The firebrand Michigan congressman unloads on the GOP leadership's unwillingness to shrink the size, scope, and spending of government. ---- Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/reasontv Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magaz... Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason Subscribe to our podcast at iTunes: https://goo.gl/az3a7a Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. ----- Since arriving in Washington in 2011, Justin Amash has cast more consistently libertarian votes than any other member of Congress. A lawyer by training, the 37-year-old Michigan Republican is an outspoken defender of due process, civil liberties, and defendants' rights. He is also resolutely non-interventionist and friendly toward immigrants. Outspoken in his principles, he rarely misses an opportunity to excoriate his GOP colleagues when they fail to live up to the party's limited-government rhetoric. "There is such a level of stupidity right now in the way we spend money," says Amash, an opponent of ever-increasing Pentagon budgets and adventurism overseas. He is also a fierce critic of Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.): "The speaker has not been protecting the institution. You need a speaker in there who is an institutionalist, who cares about the institution first, who is not a partisan." Instead, Amash tells Reason's Nick Gillespie, Ryan is protecting individual members from having to cast votes for which they might be held responsible. "Let Republicans and Democrats and others offer their amendments, and let's have votes on all sorts of things, substantive things, not just post offices like they do now." He is also fed up with Republican scapegoating of immigrants and refugees. "My parents are immigrants," he explains. "My dad's a Palestinian refugee. I think that a lot of his experience rubbed off on me. That he came from a place where he had no rights. He came here as a refugee. He told me all the time how wonderful it was to be in this country. How blessed we were to have been born in this country. That we have an opportunity here." Amash is known for explaining each of his votes on Facebook and for maintaining a lively Twitter feed, where he excoriates Democrats and Republicans whenever they seek to expand the size, scope, and spending of the federal government. "The omnibus is one of the worst—and most costly—pieces of legislation ever to become law. Period. That's why I voted no," Amash tweeted after his congressional colleagues passed a 2,300-page bill they clearly had not read. This interview was conducted at Reason Weekend, our annual donor event, which was held this year in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Have Democrats ever been this mad? Liberals are furious that their efforts to block Judge Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court failed. Now Democrats are trying a shocking new maneuver to strip Kavanaugh from the bench. Democrats New Plan to Remove Kavanaugh Revealed Kavanaugh’s confirmation battle was one of the nastiest conflicts in political history. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford decided to alert Democrat leaders of the accusation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh. All hell broke loose at that point. Radical leftist protestors swarmed Capitol Hill to intimidate senators. But it failed. And the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh. Now, liberals are trying a different strategy. Democrats are demanding the impeachment of Kavanaugh. Of course, they don’t have the votes to do that. At least not yet. That’s one of the reasons they’re determined to take control of Congress this fall. If Democrats flip the House, they could launch an investigation against Kavanaugh. Once done, Democrats would draft articles of impeachment. Liberals overwhelming support the idea. This is clear by an online petition on the website Credo Action. The petition has over 173,000 signatures in favor of impeachment. Impeachment Is Democrat’s Favorite Tactic Against Republicans This isn’t the first time Democrats have called for impeachment. Impeachment is the Democrats’ new favorite tool. Democrats have been kicking and screaming ever since their defeat in 2016. So, they made it their mission to defeat Trump and all that he stands for. That’s why they delay and obstruct anything Trump does. Of course, the liberal media joined the Democrats in their efforts. But their main goal has always been to impeach Trump. So, they’re smearing Kavanaugh. And they’re using him to bring both he and Trump down. Their scheme starts with the midterm elections. Democrats need to pick up 23 seats to take control of the House. Then, they can begin impeaching Kavanaugh and Trump. However, their plans are backfiring. Recent polls show that the confirmation battle is igniting Republicans. Meanwhile, the strong economy may be flipping undecided voters. These swing voters are crucial. And Liberals are taking notice. Some Democrat leaders are incidentally admitting this is true. Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that is was “premature” to impeach Kavanaugh. While Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) ignored the question on CNN’s “State of the Union.” But Nancy Pelosi gave a wink and a nod to liberals. Is Nancy Pelosi Leading the Charge? Pelosi informed members she would file a Freedom of Information Act request. That way, she can obtain records from the FBI investigation. She’s hoping to find a smoking gun that could bring down Kavanaugh – and more importantly, Trump. And Pelosi’s ally, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), is the top Democrat in the House Judiciary Committee. Nadler declared he may investigate allegations of perjury against Kavanaugh. The reality is, impeachment of Kavanaugh is unlikely if Democrats captured control of the House. It would require two-thirds of the Senate to remove Kavanaugh. It’s virtually impossible for Democrats to have those kinds of numbers in the Senate. So that means there is only reason Democrats want to go after Kavanaugh. Only one reason why they want to continue smearing and destroying him. They want to use him to destroy Trump. Will it work? Let us know what you think in the comments below. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ◆ Latest news videos: http://bit.ly/2Kn8KeN ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ★ CONNECT WITH US ★ ◆ Google+: http://bit.ly/2LPVNjq ◆ Email: firstname.lastname@example.org ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Videos can use content-based copyright law contains reasonable use Fair Use (https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/)

Michigan Just Took Their State Back From Muslims And Made Most Of Them Felons OVERNIGHT - Hot News Source Photo and Content: https://goo.gl/PDC4FY Subscribe Hot News : https://goo.gl/8KJSaS G+ : https://goo.gl/O7XuC7 Blog : https://goo.gl/E983tR Michigan Just Took Their State Back From Muslims And Made Most Of Them Felons OVERNIGHT. The state of Michigan is quickly turning into a Sharia swamp, thanks to the reckless immigration policies of Obama over the past 8 years. Places like Dearborn that was once an all-American town has now earned the nickname “Little Baghdad,” where markets, businesses, mosques, and Islamic schools surround residents, as the place has been transformed into a third world country. In the wake of disturbing reports of a Muslim now being positioned to take over as governor, lawmakers are quickly realizing they have to take drastic measures before their state is completely overtaken by Muslims. In an unprecedented move, Michigan has just passed a law that will instantly make most Muslims instant felons overnight, sending a clear message that Sharia Law will no longer be tolerated in their state. Michigan has been on everyone’s Sharia radar lately, after the huge scandal emerged recently about the two Michigan doctors who were caught forcing female children to undergo genital mutilation. Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, 53, and his wife, Farida Attar, 50, were arrested several weeks ago at their medical office in Livonia, Michigan, where they were charged with three federal criminal counts, including conspiracy, female genital mutilation and aiding and abetting. But unfortunately for the Muslim couple and the entire Muslim population of Michigan, things have gone from bad to worse after what lawmakers just passed overnight. After realizing that only jailing two Muslims for their crimes would do little to stop the rampant cases of little girls being mutilated in order to comply with Sharia Law, (as it’s common that Muslims will just perform this procedure on their own children), Michigan has just passed a law that will send any Muslim to prison for 15 years who is found guilty of taking part in the procedure, to include parents. Pamela Geller has more: The law was written and passed in the wake of a widely reported and horrific discovery of the procedure being conducted on two girls from Minnesota and four from Michigan allegedly by a doctor in Detroit. The federal government investigating the incident said the FGM was pushed in these instances by an India-based Muslim sect called Dawoodi Bohra. Gov. Rick Snyder, who will be running against Muslim Abdul el-Sayed in the 2018 governor race, is frantic to take back control of his state that is being completely overrun by these Sharia-supporting Muslim terrorists. “Those who commit these horrendous crimes should be held accountable for their actions, and these bills stiffen the penalties for offenders while providing additional support to victims,” Gov. Rick Snyder said in a statement. “This legislation is an important step toward eliminating this despicable practice in Michigan while empowering victims to find healing and justice.” FOX News went on: The practice, also known as female circumcision or cutting, is a federal crime punishable by five years in prison. But the new Michigan laws — which also give prosecutors and victims more time to pursue such cases — create harsher penalties for procedures that have been condemned by the United Nation but are common for girls in some parts of Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Michigan is the 26th state to officially ban the practice in the U.S. The state laws take effect in October. The new laws apply to parents or others who knowingly facilitate genital mutilation, including the transporting of girls to another state for the procedure. Defendants in such cases will not be able to defend themselves in court by saying it is a custom or ritual. Under the laws, the statute of limitations for criminal charges to be filed will be 10 years or by the alleged victim’s 21st birthday, whichever is later. Victims will be able to sue for damages until their 28th birthday, which is longer than the previous two-year window after the discovery of harm. The state Department of Health and Human Services will develop an educational and outreach program targeting specific populations, including girls who may be at risk. Teachers, physicians and police also will receive information. Advocates say few states have enacted education requirements or longer statutes of limitations. “This barbaric procedure has no accepted health benefits and is only performed to exercise control over young women,” said one of the bill sponsors, Republican Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker of Lawton. “We owe it to our girls to give law enforcement and prosecutors every available tool to bring the perpetrators to justice.”

Amy McGrath (D) announced her campaign for Congress in Kentucky’s 6th congressional district with a highly-effective ad. CNN: A Democrat from Kentucky announced her campaign against current Rep. Andy Barr with a video that is making the rounds on social media. Lt. Col. Amy McGrath, a Marine Corps veteran, released a video on Tuesday to formally announce that she is running for Barr's seat in Kentucky's 6th Congressional District. The video is full of compelling visuals about her time in the military. "This is my new mission: to take on a Congress full of career politicians who treat the people of Kentucky like they're disposable," McGrath says in the video. The announcement begins with McGrath highlighting her military service, saying she was the first female Marine to fly an F-18 in a combat mission. "When I was 12 years old, I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I grew up," McGrath says in the video. "I wanted to fly fighter jets and land on aircraft carriers, because that's the toughest flying you can do." McGrath goes on to say that when she was 13, she was informed by her congressman after writing him a letter that she wouldn't be able to achieve that dream because "women ought to be protected and not allowed to serve in combat." Her senator, Mitch McConnell, never answered her letter, she said. McGrath says she went to the Naval Academy anyway, and while she was there the law was changed and women were allowed to serve in combat. She then had a 20-year military career, in which she flew 89 combat missions, including bombings targeting al Qaeda and the Taliban. Now, McGrath is running against Barr, whom she calls McConnell's "hand-picked choice" for the seat, and who defeated a Democratic incumbent in 2012. Barr has recently faced criticism from his constituents at town halls because of his support for repealing the Affordable Care Act, which provided insurance to nearly half a million people in Kentucky by expanding the state's Medicaid program. "Mr. Barr, my mom is a polio survivor who became one of the first women to graduate from UK Medical School," McGrath says, addressing her opponent. "She persevered and ended up treating many of the same kind of people whose health care that you and Mr. McConnell would take away." McGrath is the third Democrat to announce her campaign for the seat. She joins state Sen. Reggie Thomas of Lexington and perennial Democratic candidate Geoff Young in the race. Barr won his 2016 re-election bid by more than 20 points. However, Democrats are aiming to capitalize on President Trump's low approval ratings thus far and challenge GOP-held House seats during the 2018 midterm elections.

Activists have reached a milestone in the battle against Gerrymandering. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Read more here: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/michigan-gerrymandering-reform_us_5a37ee8ce4b040881becd450 “A Michigan grassroots group says it has gathered enough petition signatures to put a measure on the 2018 ballot that would allow voters to choose whether to amend the state constitution to create an independent redistricting commission. The group, called Voters Not Politicians, plans to turn in more than 425,000 signatures to the Michigan Secretary of State’s Office on Monday to begin the verification process. The group needs at least 315,654 valid signatures to get the measure on the ballot. The campaign and petition collection effort was run completely by volunteers, though the group has recently brought on paid public relations, fundraising and legal assistance. An independent redistricting commission could have significant consequences in Michigan, which the Brennan Center for Justice describes as one of the most severely gerrymandered states in the country. Following the 2010 census, Michigan Republicans controlled the redistricting process and drew the lines in such a way that gave Republicans an advantage of two to three additional seats in Congress, according to the Brennan Center’s analysis. The ballot initiative aims to make the redistricting process more fair by amending the Michigan Constitution to create a 13-member redistricting commission with four Democrats, four Republicans and five independents. The commission would be required to hold at least 10 public hearings as part of the redistricting process.” Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

The chairman of the Republican Party in Macomb County, Michigan, a key swing county in a key swing state, is planning to use a list of foreclosed homes to block people from voting in the upcoming election as part of the state GOPs effort to challenge some voters on Election Day. We will have a list of foreclosed homes and will make sure people arent voting from those addresses, party chairman James Carabelli told Michigan Messenger in a telephone interview earlier this week. He said the local party wanted to make sure that proper electoral procedures were followed. State election rules allow parties to assign election challengers to polls to monitor the election. In addition to observing the poll workers, these volunteers can challenge the eligibility of any voter provided they have a good reason to believe that the person is not eligible to vote. One allowable reason is that the person is not a true resident of the city or township. The Michigan Republicans planned use of foreclosure lists is apparently an attempt to challenge ineligible voters as not being true residents. One expert questioned the legality of the tactic. You cant challenge people without a factual basis for doing so, said J. Gerald Hebert, a former voting rights litigator for the U.S. Justice Department who now runs the Campaign Legal Center, a Washington D.C.-based public-interest law firm. I dont think a foreclosure notice is sufficient basis for a challenge, because people often remain in their homes after foreclosure begins and sometimes are able to negotiate and refinance. As for the practice of challenging the right to vote of foreclosed property owners, Hebert called it, mean-spirited. GOP ties to states largest foreclosure law firm The Macomb GOPs plans are another indication of how John McCains campaign stands to benefit from the burgeoning number of foreclosures in the state. McCains regional headquarters are housed in the office building of foreclosure specialists Trott & Trott. The firms founder, David A. Trott, has raised between $100,000 and $250,000 for the Republican nominee. The Macomb County partys plans to challenge voters who have defaulted on their house payments is likely to disproportionately affect African-Americans who are overwhelmingly Democratic voters. More than 60 percent of all sub-prime loans — the most likely kind of loan to go into default — were made to African-Americans in Michigan, according to a report issued last year by the states Department of Labor and Economic Growth.

For the first time in more than 30 years the U.S. House today passed extensive tax reform legislation with several provisions beneficial to farmers nationwide. Supported by Michigan Farm Bureau (MFB), H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed 227-205 with 9 out of 14 members of Michigan’s Congressional delegation voting in favor of the bill. Leading up to the vote, MFB District 3 Director Mike Fusilier, State Young Farmer Committee member Adam Dietrich, and National Legislative Counsel John Kran spent Nov. 14-15 in Washington D.C. The trio met with representatives and staff to share why farmers need a tax system that promotes economic growth and addresses agriculture’s unique challenges.

Democratic Rep. Henry Cuallar is everything wrong with the party. Ron Placone and Mark Thompson, hosts of Aggressive Progressives, discuss. "On Wednesday afternoon, 18 House Democrats joined all but one Republican in voting for a GOP resolution in support of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a deportation force created in 2003 as part of the Department of Homeland Security that’s come under fierce national scrutiny for its detention and treatment of huge numbers of undocumented immigrants. One of the 18 Democrats, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), has also received—and defended—campaign contributions from private prison giants GEO Group and CoreCivic, which are profiting enormously from Donald Trump’s harsh immigration policies. The Florida-based GEO Group has already scored $166 million in ICE contracts to detain immigrants this year alone and is on pace to eclipse its 2017 total, which was its highest on record. CoreCivic has received contracts totaling $103 million this year. Democratic leaders called on their caucus to vote “present” to signal they wouldn’t take part in what Minority Whip Steny Hoyer called “a political gotcha bill.” One hundred thirty-three Democrats voted “present,” while 34 Democrats and one Republican, Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, voted no."* Read more here: https://tytnetwork.com/2018/07/18/democrat-who-got-16500-from-private-prisons-joins-gop-in-vote-supporting-ice/ Follow Jimmy Dore on Twitter: http://twitter.com/jimmy_dore Follow Steve Oh on Twitter: https://twitter.com/stevenoh88 Follow Stef Zamorano on Twitter: https://twitter.com/miserablelib Follow Malcolm Fleschner on Twitter: https://twitter.com/CultureShlock Follow Ron Placone on Twitter: https://twitter.com/RonPlacone

Ari Berman, author of the new book "GIVE US THE BALLOT: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America ( http://amzn.to/1xBLYTH ) testified at a Congressional Luncheon Briefing on the Threat of Voter Suppression on April 21, 2016. Rev. Dr. William Barber, leader of the Moral Monday & Forward Together Movement served as the event's opening speaker. The briefing was attended by man members of the Congressional Black Caucus, including John Conyers, Elijah Cummings, and Sheila Jackson Lee. It was sponsored by the Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC), led by noted civil rights attorney Barbara R. Arnwine, former Executive Director of the Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights Under the Law, and also sponsored by the National Election Defense Coalition (NEDC). The evisceration of provisions of the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision in the Shelby case has allowed states to brazenly restrict voting rights. This includes, but is not limited to, proof of citizenship laws, strict photo identification requirements, early voting cutbacks, and practices that create extreme waiting lines where there is a large presence of African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans and university students. Recent studies reveal that new state voter suppression could stop approximately 1.3 million from voting in competitive states. At the briefing, you will hear from the nation’s top experts on how scores of Americans are being denied the right to vote in states that have passed onerous voting laws. In Texas alone, half a million people lack the photo identification required to vote. Thirty-two states have promulgated new Jim Crow laws to combat the largely mythical "voter fraud." Sixteen of these states will see their plans go into effect for the first time in the crucial 2016 elections. Additionally our aging voting machines and insecure vote-counting technology poses serious questions about vulnerability and accuracy. At this Congressional briefing new information based on the 2016 primaries voting experiences, and on 2016 published reports and books, will be explored. The briefing also featured recommendations and proposals for combating and redressing voter suppression, and legislation promoting an open, transparent and inclusive franchise for all eligible citizens. Other speakers at the event: Barbara R. Arnwine President, Transformative Justice Coalition Former Executive Director, Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Bernard Simelton President, Alabama NAACP Alejandra Gomez Living United for Change in Arizona, Anti-Voter Suppression Activist Robert J. Fitrakis PhD Professor, Columbus State College, PhD Election Defense Expert on Vote-Counting Security and Election Fraud Lindsey Nielson, PhD Bucknell University Author of the recent UCSD Report on How Voter Suppression Laws Are Restricting the Vote in Communities of Color.

In advance of Gov. Rick Snyder’s delivery of his executive budget on Wednesday, House Democrats announced they would fight for a budget that refocuses Lansing’s attention toward everyday families, local communities and schools. Democrats proposed revenue savings by ending tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas, and holding state contractors accountable — like the Unemployment Insurance Agency Vendor that recently exposed the names, social security numbers and private data of nearly 2 million Michiganders. Protecting and preserving the Healthy Michigan plan, as well as criminal justice reform, are also top priorities.

Rachel explains what is happening in Michigan with the Emergency Manager Act and how it is being used by the Republicons to destroy democracy. "The House and Senate recently passed legislation that allows the state to intervene at an earlier stage. The new law also expands the power of emergency managers in order to better equip them with the tools needed to address a local unit's financial emergency." Sounds good but what it does is circumvent the democratically elected local representatives of the people and install a dictator appointed by the Governor. The Republicons are always paying lip service to local control when it suits them but when it doesn't they opt for dictatorship.
