The King of Conservative Talk Radio has Died at 70

RIP Rush Limbaugh.  At least, twenty million of us are gonna miss you! You were a one-of-a-kind patriot, as well as a pioneering communicator extraordinaire.

All hail the Maha Rushie and his golden EIB microphone! He was truly America’s anchorman.

New Website: Victims of Whitmer

Kyle Olson, of Breitbart, reports: “A website Unlock Michigan has launched is spotlighting the tragic impact of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) ongoing coronavirus lockdown orders.

Fred Wszolek, a spokesman for Unlock Michigan, the group that organized a petition drive to repeal the governor’s emergency powers, told The Kyle Olson Show this week that will ensure the stories of those harmed by Whitmer’s mandates will not be forgotten.”

Never forget these victims, and do share your own story.

Restaurant Industry to Gov. Whitmer: Reopen Dine-In Service ASAP

Scott McClallen, of The Center Square, reports: “Representatives from approximately 90 bars, restaurants, and other Michigan establishments signed a letter asking Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to safely reopen dine-in service “as soon as possible” to prevent additional permanent closures.

The Facebook post announcing the letter has been shared more than 1,000 times.

‘This is not about right or left, this is about the livelihoods of everyone in the restaurant industry and the decision to extend the ban on dine-in service from today until February 1,’ the letter reads.

Many of the signatory businesses are philanthropic foundations located in communities across Michigan. According to Michigan Farm News, REO Town district restaurant co-owners Matt Gillett and Travis Stoliker have distributed over 300 meals in 14 days during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, and their customers  donated money for 430 additional meals for those in need.”

Line 5 Must Remain Operational to Heat Northern Michigan

Note: The following press release was released from Rep. Damoose’s office.

Rep. John Damoose today said the existing Line 5 pipeline beneath the Straits of Mackinac must remain in operation until a state-of-the-art underground tunnel is built to replace it.The pipeline delivers fuel needed to heat Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. Damoose is fighting against Gov. Whitmer’s efforts to shut down the pipeline without a replacement.

“Line 5 is too important to Northern Michigan to just abandon without a ready replacement,” said Damoose, of Harbor Springs. “The fuel it delivers to our communities is needed to heat homes, schools and workplaces. You can’t simply shut down the pipeline and hope some immediate solution to heat Northern Michigan magically appears from nowhere.

“The fact is, a great long-term solution is already in the works – the building of a state-of-the-art underground tunnel. It’s a safe solution, paid for without taxpayer money. This new tunnel must be allowed to proceed, and the existing pipeline must continue to operate safely until it’s ready.”

Enbridge Energy, in a letter to Gov. Whitmer today, said she doesn’t have the authority to revoke its easement for Line 5 — and the dual lines are in full compliance with the federal safety standards that govern them. Damoose represents the 107th District in the Michigan House, including Emmet, Chippewa and Mackinac counties, and part of Cheboygan County.
