Rep Runestad To Senator Arlan Meekhof -Pass Constitutional Carry

State Rep
Jim Runestad
Fifteen House Republicans have signed a letter to Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof urging him to have the Senate quickly pass legislation that would end the need for a permit to carry a concealed pistol.

Mr. Meekhof (R-West Olive) placed the House-passed legislation (HB 4416, HB 4417, HB 4418 and HB 4419) into the Senate Government Operations Committee, which he chairs and tends to use as a burial ground for controversial legislation he prefers never see the light of day. Mr. Meekhof, however, does occasionally move bills out of the committee, and his spokesperson has said he has not buried it with the decision to place the bills there.

The 15 Republicans invoked the recent shooting at the Republican congressional baseball practice as further justification for the legislation. Five people, including U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-Louisiana) and former Michigan House staffer Matt Mika, were shot during that incident.

"We abhor the idea of politicizing a tragedy. But this incident itself was a political act and one that bears on us directly as lawmakers," the House members wrote in a letter led by Rep. John Reilly (R-Oakland Township). "It was an attempted mass assassination of Republican elected representatives. It was an attack on innocent people. It was an attack on our party. It was an attack on the Congress of the United States. It was an attack on our nation and its lawful governance. And it was only thwarted because one representative with armed security happened to be there."

A security team shot and killed the shooter.

The legislators said no law-abiding resident should be "prevented, encumbered or delayed from obtaining and carrying firearms for his or her personal safety."

Meekhof spokesperson Amber McCann said Mr. Meekhof has not decided whether to hold a hearing on the bill, "but he'll give Representative Reilly's request careful consideration."

Current law bars those who have committed various felonies and misdemeanors, as well as those involuntarily committed to an institution for mental illness, from obtaining a concealed pistol license.

Federal law already requires those purchasing firearms from a federally licensed dealer to undergo a criminal background check and supporters of the legislation have said that would ensure those wanting to obtain a concealed pistol license are law abiding. However, many firearms are purchased through private sales where no federal background check is required.

"We believe that the right to self-defense is God-given and that it is the duty of the state to protect that right for all law-abiding citizens. Regrettably, many laws still on the books infringe upon this fundamental right," the legislators wrote. "Senator Meekhof, we write to entreat you in your capacity as a senator and the leader of your chamber to expeditiously pass legislation to restore and expand the rights of law-abiding citizens to be armed and protected."

Mr. Reilly did not return a message.

Also signing the letter were Rep. Steve Johnson (R-Wayland), Rep. Joseph Graves (R-Linden), Rep. Jim Runestad (R-White Lake Township), Rep. Triston Cole (R-Mancelona), Rep. Shane Hernandez (R-Port Huron), Rep. Gary Glenn (R-Midland), Rep. Pamela Hornberger (R-Chesterfield Township), Rep. Julie Alexander (R-Hanover), Rep. Michele Hoitenga (R-Manton), Rep. Jeff Noble (R-Plymouth), Rep. Sue Allor (R-Wolverine), Rep. Tom Barrett (R-Potterville), Rep. Jim Lower (R-Cedar Lake) and Rep. Hank Vaupel (R-Handy Township)

A Mom's Plea After What Happened To Her Son With Down Syndrome

A mom's passionate plea over her son who has down syndrome goes viral after what happened to her son. 

Kristen Miller Rumphol with her son Brandon left

An open letter, 

To all that were at the Algonquin public pool. I am a special needs mother, my son Brandon has Down Syndrome. I never thought I would be one of those mother's that write an open letter for all to read but here I am.

Today while at the swimming pool my heart was breaking! You see NO ONE wanted to play with my son. He would go up to other kids and say " hi boy or hi girl." He is still categorized as nonverbal and he is hard to understand but he was trying his best! Every single time the kids would either look at him weird and say nothing or just swim away.

Brandon would look back at me with a look of disappointment. Not understanding why the kids were being mean to him.

Parents, please educate your children! Tell your children that children with special needs want the same thing they do, they want to be accepted. They want to be included and treated just like every other "normal" child. They want friends that won't judge them and will just accept them as they are. 
If they ask what is Down syndrome? Tell them it is a third copy of the 21st chromosome. Every person with Down Syndrome will learn to do the same thing as everyone else it just takes them longer to get there. They will need more help to there. But they WILL get there! 

Secretly I hope this might go viral. Please feel free to share this.. Help me to spread awareness for all children with special needs just not down syndrome. They just want to be loved, accepted and included!!

Democrat Party Fined A Record Amount For Election Fraud



While the Democrats keep trying to stick made up corruption and collusion charges against Donald Trump, their party continues to sneak by in breaking elections laws.    In Michigan one of the largest fines was just issued for a violation of election laws! 

The Detroit Free Press reports:

“Games of chance have always been risky, but they also just got very costly for the Michigan Democratic Party.

The party has agreed to pay a hefty $500,000 civil fine to the Federal Elections Commission — one of the largest penalties every levied by that office — after an internal investigation of its bingo operation, which was used for political fund-raising, found numerous examples of shoddy record keeping, contributions that exceeded limits and campaign finance reporting inaccuracies. one of the largest fines eve levied by the federal elections commission.

It’s a fine that far exceeds the average penalty levied against candidates and political organizations over the years. The highest average fine over the past 40 years was $179,499 in 2006.

But the $500,000 fine will put a crimp in the party’s budget. It must pay $100,000 immediately and then pay off the rest in quarterly installments through mid-2019.  The party’s federal campaign fund has a balance of $147,915, according to reports filed with the FEC. Under state law, a political party’s state campaign finance reports do not have to include a summary sheet, which would detail how much disposable cash the party

COMEY HEARING: What You Need To Know


By Kevin Tatulyan
Vice Chair Michigan Republican Party
Coalitions
A recap of today's hearing from former FBI Director Comey:

1. President Trump wanted the Russian investigation to continue.

2. No votes in the election were altered by Russia, and President Trump never asked for the investigation into Russian involvement be stopped.

3. President Trump did not try to interrupt or interfere with Russian investigation.

4. President Trump was personally not under investigation by the FBI.

5. Former Attorney General Lynch instructed James Comey to to call investigation into Hillary Clinton a "Matter' and not an Investigation.

These five points need to be shared with all our family members, friends, and especially those who worked so hard to elect Donald J. Trump as our 45th President of the United States.

Additionally, Marco Rubio nailed it out of the park when he stated: "The only thing that's never been leaked is the fact that the president was not personally under investigation."

I encourage everyone to follow Ronna Romney McDaniel on Twitter. She is doing an amazing job tweeting about today's senate hearing. Her twitter handle is: @GOPChairwoman. Retweet her tweets so you can help spread

Jerry Seinfeld Defends Kathy Griffin


Seinfield with Kathy Griffin

Jerry Seinfeld is defending Kathy  Griffin and her disgusting act of holding a bloody real life looking Donald Trump head.

This is what Seinfeld said, 

“Yes, it was another bad joke. Every comedian tells bad jokes,” Seinfeld said. “We all do it. That’s how we find the good jokes. So someone told a bad joke — so what, I don’t understand the big deal.”

This is not the first controversy Jerry Seinfeld has found himself in. Back in 1993 the then just shy of 40 years old Seinfeld  was dating 17 year old Shoshanna Lonstein who was a senior at the prestigious Nightingale-Bamford School on the Upper West Side.

She was just Seventeen

Kathy Griffin's Bizarre News Conference Are You Connecting The Dots?

By: Randy Schaefer
I just learned that Lisa Bloom is representing Kathy Griffin, who is accusing the Trump family of bullying her.

 For those of you who do not remember, or do not know. Lisa Bloom is the fake investigative reporter from the Huffington Post who claimed that Donald Trump raped a 13 year old girl over 30 years ago, just days before the election.

 She and her mom, Gloria Allred, represented all 13 women who came forward with accusations against Donald Trump just before the election. She and her mom represented all five women who accused Bill O'Reilly and at least three women who accused Roger Ailes. 


They are also both large donors to the Clinton Foundation
and to Hillary Clinton's Presidential campaign. 

Her mom also represented Anita Hill when she was faslely accusing Clarence Thomas almost 30 years ago. Are you starting to see a pattern here.

 Are you starting to connect the dots?

Why Trump Must Dump Paris Climate Change Accord



There are many reasons why President Trump must pull the United States from the Paris Climate Accord some of which include the facts that 1) Man Made Climate Change is a hoax - weather patterns are controlled by sun patterns, 2) It is a job killer that will weaken the U.S. Economy bankrupting us and 3) it is a back door TREATY that by-passes the required 2/3rd vote to be ratified by the U.S. Senate.   Obama knew this which is why he hurried to get us into the accord.

Here is a dirty secret in 1969 There was a  United Nations gathering in Vienna to sign the Treaty on Treaties.  The Treaty on Treaties was the frame work of how Treaties should be handled even if not fully signed by all willing or considered willing participating coutries.

Yes considered willing countries, if  a country is considering some or all of a Treaty according to the Treaty of Treaties section 18 you are basically ratifying the Treaty when you agree to all or party the treaty even if you haven't signed the treaty .

This is why Trump must pull us out of the Paris Climate Accord as it is a treaty in its own right and under the Treaty of Treaties section 18, if we agree with any part of it verbally we are considered bound,   Now since the accord was agreed to by Obama but not passed by 2/3rds of the U.S., Trump has the ability to undo Obama's agreement.  However if he does not pull out, we could be stuck with being in the Paris Climate Accord unless we get 2/3rds of the Senate to pull us out. 

Trump can save face by saying that we are pulling out of the Accord, as it is considered a Treaty, and it must be passed by 2/3rds of our Senate.   There it will likely die and President Trump won't have to take the blame as he alone didn't make the decision to get out of the Paris Climate Accord alone but wanted the U.S. to accept the accord/treaty under the laws of our Constitution.

Here is the clause of the 1969 Vienna Convention Treaty on Treaties, which by the way never was ratified either by 2/3rds of the U.S, Senate.


Article 18. OBLIGATION NOT TO DEFEAT THE OBJECT AND PURPOSE
OF A TREATY PRIOR TO ITS ENTRY INTO FORCE
A State is obliged to refrain from acts which would defeat the object and pur
pose of a treaty when:

(a) It has signed the treaty or has exchanged instruments constituting the treaty
subject to ratification, acceptance or approval, until it shall have made its in
tention clear not to become a party to the treaty; or

(b) It has expressed its consent to be bound by the treaty, pending the entry into
force of the treaty and provided that such entry into force is not unduly
delayed.


Michigan City To Farmers: You can't sell blueberries unless you affirm gay marriage

Tennes Family

The Tennes family has been farming in Michigan for generations.

They grow all sorts of crops at the Country Mill Farm – organic apples, blueberries, pumpkins, sweet corn.

And for the past seven years, Steve Tennes and his family have sold their produce at the farmer’s market owned by the city of East Lansing.

But this year – city officials told the devout Catholic family that their blueberries and sweet corn were not welcome at the farmer’s market – and neither were they.

Last year, someone posted a message on Country Mill’s Facebook page inquiring about whether they hosted same-sex weddings at the farm.

Tennes told the individual they did not permit same-sex marriages on the farm because of the family’s Catholic belief that marriage is a sacramental union between one man and one woman.

City officials later discovered the Facebook posting and began immediate action to remove Country Mill from the Farmer’s Market – alleging the family had violated the city’s discrimination ordinance.

"It was brought to our attention that The Country Mill's general business practices do not comply with East Lansing's Civil Rights ordinances and public policy against discrimination as set forth in Chapter 22 of the City Code and outlined in the 2017 Market Vendor Guidelines, as such, The Country Mill's presence as a vendor his prohibited by the City's Farmer's Market Vendor Guidelines," read a letter the city sent to the family.
