Michigan Board of Education Proposal
On May 10th the Michigan Board of Education will be voting whether to create a special LGBTQ class of students in Michigan public schools. Anyone suggesting such an outrageous a few years ago would have been considered insane or worse. Today, instead of suggesting that such people be sent to a mental institution, we elect them to the Board of Education, Congress and even President. Amazing what becomes of a society that turns its back on God. Only a generation or two ago it was common for teachers to open the day with prayer and Bible reading, today one wouldn’t dare do such a thing or even post the Ten Commandments. God forbid that children should learn that it is wrong to murder, steal, lie or cheat. After years of teaching them that the universe came to be from nothing, that they evolved from monkeys and from primordial soup, should we be surprised that some of them can’t figure out if they are male or female?

If we allow the Board of Education to promulgate their homosexual agenda, the consequences will be disastrous. Here is a sampling of what is proposed:

Students would be permitted to use restrooms and locker rooms in accordance with their chosen gender identity.
Students could participate in PE classes and sports in accordance with their chosen gender identity.

It encourages LGBTQ topics to be included throughout the academic curriculum.

Teachers would be asked to address the students by their chosen names instead of their given names.

It recommends that teachers, coaches, bus drivers, janitors and cafeteria workers be given special indoctrination so as not to offend the poor darlings who can’t figure out what sex they are.

Action Alert: HB4847 – Restoring Constitution Right To Jury Trial


Folks this is our chance to get this right restored without having a court battle. Please make those calls.

From: Rep. Gary Glenn (District 98) [mailto:GaryGlenn@house.mi.gov]
Sent: Thursday, April 14, 2016 12:01 PM

Subject: Action Alert: House Bill 4847, Restoring Our Constitutionally-Guaranteed Right to a Jury Trial

Dear Friends,
The purpose for this email is to bring to your attention House Bill 4847, which would restore Michigan citizens’ constitutionally-guaranteed right to a jury trial, including on lawsuits filed against the state.

Specifically, HB 4847 would allow any citizen of Michigan to sue the state on any matter and demand a trial by jury in their district of residence.

As provided by our state constitution, Michigan residents already have a right to have any lawsuit brought by them to be heard by a jury of their peers. However, that right has not been upheld by the current system in which lawsuits against the state are currently heard by the Court of Claims, which provides no trial by jury.

HB 4847 would right this wrong and put in statute what is already in our state constitution.

I urge you to take action today by contacting the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, as well as all members on the committee, to ask them to allow HB 4847 to be taken up for a hearing and subsequent vote. This could be accomplished via a phone call as well as an email. The contact information for committee members are as follows:

Chairman Klint Kesto, R-Commerce Twp., District 39, klintkesto@house.mi.gov; 517-373-1799
Majority Vice-Chair Peter Lucido, R-Shelby Twp., District 36, PeterLucido@house.mi.gov; 517-373-0843
Rep. Kurt Heise, R-Plymouth, District 20, kurtheise@house.mi.gov; 517-373-3816
Rep. Joel Johnson, R-Clare, District 97, joeljohnson@house.mi.gov; 517-373-8962
Rep. Martin Howrylak, R-Troy, District 41, martinhowrylak@house.mi.gov; 517-373-1783
Rep. Triston Cole, R-Mancelona, District 105, TristonCole@house.mi.gov; 517-373-0829
Rep. Jim Runestad, R-White Lake, District 44, JimRunestad@house.mi.gov; 517-373-2616
Minority Vice-Chair, Jeff Irwin, D-Ann Arbor, District 53, jeffirwin@house.mi.gov; 517-373-2577
Rep. Rose Mary C. Robinson, D-Detroit, District 4, rosemaryrobinson@house.mi.gov; 517-373-1008
Rep. Stephanie Chang, D-Detroit, District 6, StephanieChang@house.mi.gov; 517-373-0823
Rep. Vanessa Guerra, D-Saginaw, District 95, VanessaGuerra@house.mi.gov; 517-373-0152
I hope you will contact these legislators today. If they hear from you, they will know that HB 4847 is a bill that they need to act on immediately. Thank you.

Passing The Torch of Liberty To The Next Generation


You need to take 2 ½ minutes to listen to this young girl.

Passing the Torch of Liberty to the next generation.
Let’s not just pass this torch, we need to pick it up for all future generations. Tean just outlined for you what it is going to take to safe America.

Thank you Greg for sharing this.

Lawless Legal System


This land grab is taking place in every state to some degree. If the people do not stand for one another there will be no privately owned left to leave as an inheritance to your children or children’s children.


Folks we have a constitutional crisis. We have public servants, yes judges are servants and they work for us, who are absolutely out of control. They have created a lawless legal system and are using it to crush property owners. Please post this and share with others. We need folks to wake up and realize what is happening. Why would the STATE go to such extremes to deny having a jury hear this man’s case? And how about all these other cases they have used to “justify” denying this man a jury trial, what happened in those cases. Does the STATE not want the people to know what is happening behind the closed doors of the court?

Please read Art I § 14 Jury trials and Art III § 7 Common law and statutes, continuance below from the Constitution for Michigan before reading the excerpt concerning the right to a jury trial from the Jack Morley property rights case involving wetlands in Michigan. You do not need to be an attorney to read and understand the courts double talk and circular logic depriving Mr. Morley a jury to hear this unjust case against him. I have attached the whole Appeals Courts opinion for those who care to read the whole tyrannical court opinion.

1963 Michigan Constitution

Art I § 14 Jury trials.  The right of trial by jury shall remain, but shall be waived in all civil cases unless demanded by one of the parties in the manner prescribed by law. In all civil cases tried by 12 jurors a verdict shall be received when 10 jurors agree.

Art III § 7 Common law and statutes, continuance. The common law and the statute laws now in force, not repugnant to this constitution, shall remain in force until they expire by their own limitations, or are changed, amended or repealed.

Before: SAAD, P.J., and STEPHENS and O’BRIEN, JJ.

Defendant Jack O. Morley appeals as of right the final order of the circuit court granting judgment in favor of plaintiff, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). We affirm. Continue reading



Michigan 1718

[My Note:  This information was taken from familypedia online and can be edited so do your do diligence for accuracy if using information as a resource.]

Michigan ( /ˈmɪʃɪɡən/) is a state located in the Great Lakes region of the Midwestern United States. The name Michigan is the French form of the Ojibwa word mishigamaa, meaning “large water” or “large lake”.[1][lower-alpha 2] Michigan is the 9th most populous of the 50 United States, with the 11th most extensive total area. Its capital is Lansing, and the largest city is Detroit. Michigan was admitted into the Union on January 26, 1837, as the 26th state.

Michigan has the longest freshwater coastline of any political subdivision in the world, being bounded by four of the five Great Lakes, plus Lake Saint Clair.[5] Michigan is one of the leading U.S. states for recreational boating.[6] The state has 64,980 inland lakes and ponds.[7] A person in the state is never more than 6 miles (9.7 km) from a natural water source or more than 85 miles (137 km) from a Great Lakes shoreline.[8] It is the largest state by total area east of the Mississippi River.[lower-alpha 3]

Michigan is the only state to consist of two peninsulas. The Lower Peninsula, to which the name Michigan was originally applied, is often noted to be shaped like a mitten. The Upper Peninsula (often referred to as “the U.P.”) is separated from the Lower Peninsula by the Straits of Mackinac, a 5-mile (8 km) channel that joins Lake Huron to Lake Michigan. The two peninsulas are connected by the Mackinac Bridge. While sparsely populated, the Upper Peninsula is economically important due to its status as a tourist destination as well as its abundance of natural resources.


When the first European explorers arrived, the most populous tribes were Algonquian peoples, which include the Ottawa, the Ojibwe or Anishnaabeg (called Chippewa in French), and the Potawatomi. The Anishnaabeg, whose numbers are estimated to have been between 25,000 and 35,000, were the largest. Continue reading
