State Senator Wayne Schmidt Visits Emmet County

At the invite of the Northern Michigan Women’s Republican Club, State Senator Wayne Schmidt, who represents MI’s 37th District, spoke to the group and fielded excellent questions. He was asked about Elliott-Larsen expansions, mask mandates, GOP gubernatorial candidates, and election reform.

Sen. Schmidt mentioned the 39 election reform bills that MI GOP senators have recently filed.

A good time was had by all; thanks to Vernales restaurant for a delicious lunch!

Action Alert: House to Vote on Amnesty Bills in Coming Days!

From the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR):

As the Biden Border Crisis rages, the House is scheduled to vote on two MASSIVE amnesty bills this week!

Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats are clearly not getting the message. So let’s remind them:

Now is not the time for any bill that does not address the concerns of the American people, especially not an amnesty which will only make the crisis worse. 

We need to stop these amnesty bills dead in their tracks. That is why I am asking you to please take action now and contact your representative!

Here is what to do:

  1. Click the take action button (link below) and follow the steps to send a message to your elected official telling them to VOTE NO on the two amnesty bills slated for consideration this week: H.R. 6 – American Dream and Promise Act and H.R. 1603 – Farm Workforce Modernization Act.
  2. Share the “Take Action” link with your friends and family members on social media or through email so that they can make their voices heard as well.
It is up to us to take a stand against these “America Last” proposals. If you have a few minutes, please take action now.

Sen. Lana Theis Introduces Bill to Protect Female Sports

Editorial comment: You go girl!

LANSING, Mich. — Legislation introduced by Sen. Lana Theis (pictured) on Wednesday (March 10) would require Michigan schools to only permit students of the same biological sex to compete against one another in school-sanctioned gender specific athletics.

“As a society, we fought for generations to ensure girls and women, through Title IX, have an equal opportunity to compete in athletics on a level playing field,” said Theis, R-Brighton. “Sadly, today, identity politics threatens all that was sacrificed and gained. Across our country, biological females are losing opportunities at titles, records, scholarships and, at times, participation itself.”

First They Came for Dumbo, Then They Came for Peter Pan …

To think this observation was written over seventy years ago, since 1984, the book, was published in 1949. Orwell was truly prescient!
