Discussing Voter Fraud in Lansing

The “everyday” Michiganders who testified before the MI House Oversight Committee about election irregularities, yesterday, were compelling, well spoken, and diverse.

For example, here’s Ms. Hima Kolanagireddy.

P.S. Chairman Matt Hall, a Republican from Marshall, did a fine job moderating a volatile hearing and pushing back against this bullying rep.

Remembering Tom Casperson

The ECRP is very sad to learn of the death of former state Senator Tom Casperson of Escanaba.

While Tom represented the UP for 15 years in the state legislature, he often attended events outside his district, like the Lincoln Day Dinner, in Petoskey. He was a cordial man who didn’t shy away from being a strong advocate of lower taxes and less regulation particularly when it came to forests and wetlands.

The MI Senate GOP Twitter page tweeted: “Today we lost a titan of the Upper Peninsula … our thoughts and prayers are with Tom’s family as we grieve the loss of our friend.”

Mr. Casperson was 61 years old.

ECRP Wishes You and Yours a Happy Thanksgiving

Classy Patriots Flock to the Nation’s Capital

The glorious, orderly scene at today’s Million MAGA March in Washington, D.C.

Law enforcement are estimating 200,000 (but possibly 500,000) people attended the historic event including a drive-by from the President.

Stop the Steal!

Twas the Night Before the Election …

and POTUS and the VEEP came to northern Michigan for one final campaign push! Hello, Traverse City.

Kudos to the red wave supporters that braved the blustery weather, for many hours, to support Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence. Let’s Roll!

Make Halloween Great Again

Trick or Treat? The Trumpkin facemask can double as a costume accessory and a political statement. Happy October 31st!
