Like him or not, bash him over his debt ceiling votes or not,  he is still the best candidate to beat Debbie Stabenow. Here are the reasons why I support him.

Pete has been endorsed by Governor Snyder, Congressman Paul Ryan, Herman Cain, Senator Pat Toomey, Governor John Kasich, Congresswoman Michele Bachman to mention just a few.

Pete has been incredibly competitive in polls, closing to within 5 points of Stabenow before the primary and he has been doing well with his fundraising efforts.

He served as the ranking member on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, playing an instrumental role in reforming the intelligence community after the terrorist attacks on 9/11.
Working with both Democrats and Republicans, including a Democrat president, Pete Hoekstra helped balance the federal budget in the 1990s.  During that time, there was in fact a budget surplus!     
His main primary opponent, Clark Durant, doesn’t have nearly enough name recognition as Pete has.  There have been rumors about him taking too much money out of his non-profit charter school organization. He doesn’t have the “it” factor that Pete has, Pete is just  a real likeable kind of guy, that is accessible and understands business, economics and politics. 

Pete has been endorsed by Right to Life and he is very strong proponent of the lives of the unborn. 
He has supported multiple pieces of legislation over the years that protect unborn children. He supported the Right to Life Act, the Parental Notification and Intervention Act, and the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act. Each of these acts protects the unborn children of the United States.He also supported legislation that rewards families who have adopted children with tax benefits. 

 He will do right by the citizens of Michigan.

Help Pete with a contribution. http://www.hoekstraforsenate.com/

Thjs is such a well written endorsement besides telling the truth as to what is going on in Michigan's new 11th congressional district. Please read Rand Paul's endorsement and make a donation to Kerry's campaign at http://bentivolioforcongress.com/

We are proud to announce that Rand Paul has endorsed Kerry's candidacy!  Please read Senator Paul's endorsement and donate today.
Dear Patriot,
I am proud to endorse Kerry Bentivolio for the House of Representatives and I hope you will join me by helping him today.
A veteran, Kerry Bentivolio is still fighting a battle to defend the Constitution. This time it is against both the progressives in Michigan that support President Obama's wasteful spending and big government and his own party's elites who believe they should be allowed to handpick a successor to Thaddeus McCotter. Instead of supporting the only Republican on the ballot, the establishment GOP has chosen to run a write-in campaign in favor of a person who authored some of the worst tax legislation in Michigan's history. 
Kerry Bentivolio is ready to start taking on big spending Republicans who claim to be conservatives but don’t really act like it. He’s running to represent Michigan's 11th District and he needs our help.
We need conservative leaders who truly want to change the way business is done in Washington. That’s the kind of person Kerry Bentivolio is. He's already promised to propose an amendment to the Constitution that bans the Obamacare tax mandate as his first action in Congress. Kerry Bentivolio is tough, principled, and ready to serve the people rather than special interests.
Kerry's establishment opponent is Nancy Cassis who wrote the Michigan Business Tax, a job-killing proposal that hurt Michigan's economy. We can send a message to the Republican establishment by sending a small government conservative to the House of Representatives like Kerry Bentivolio rather than their handpicked candidate.
Both parties helped put us on the path to a debt crisis by propping up big government spending.The race in Michigan's 11th District is a chance for the Tea Party to send a message to the Republican Party establishment. You are there to represent us!
I proudly endorse Kerry Bentivolio and ask you to join me in supporting him.
For America,
Rand Paul

One would think that after the 2010 election the GOP and establishment politicians have seen what the people are looking for in a politician.
Not so in Michigan, at least not all of Michigan. The new 11th congressional district has been going through some unusual times the last few weeks.
First we lose Thad McCotter because he wasn't able to get the required signatures in an honest way. Once caught, the only way out he saw, was quitting on the spot leaving the seat wide open.
But, there already was another name on the ballot, Kerry Bentivolio. He got all the required signatures, has a huge teaparty following due to his constitutional and fiscally conservative stance.
Kerry is not a politician, but has been in the political circle for some years. He understands the problem and certainly understands what needs to be done. That involves staying true and blue to ones convictions, and that, dear reader, is not what the MI GOP is looking for.  They want someone they can mold and pull strings when needed. They found this person in one Nancy Cassis, a former, term limited state senator, certainly old enough to be retired.  Mrs. Cassis is known to be the Mother of the Michigan MBT, or Business Tax, which she together with former Governor Granholm proudly thought of and endorsed, among other big spending votes.  Mrs Cassis is running now as a write-in.
Mr. Bentivolio continues to fight for his nomination while Mrs. Cassis is lavishly running outrageous vicious lies and commercials with money thrown at her from all the big wig establishment. Many names on that list who endorsed her quite stunned me, especially Congressman Rogers and Congressman Wahlberg. What are they thinking? I am sure they know we are watching them as well and won't forget.  Other names are not surprising.
The establishment continues to ignore Kerry Bentivolio, the latest was an interview with the MI GOP chair who acknowledged that he had someone on the ballot, but would not utter his name.
I strongly support Kerry Bentivolio and hope you will vote for him in the upcoming primary.

Here is another boondugle between Granholm and Obama that has been hidden from us. We know that Obama recently promised billions to bring in arabic refugees, even though we can't afford it. But what we didn't know is that not only will we house them, clothe and school them, now we have to put up with yet another option when making our phone calls. When will we draw the line and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

I just received this info and will share the bulk with you:

Muslim men are allowed to have as many as 4 wives. Many Muslims have immigrated into the U.S. and brought their 2-3- or 4 wives with them, but the U.S. does not allow multi marriages, so the man lists one wife as his, and signs the other 2 or 3 up as extended family on welfare and other free Government programs!
Michigan has the highest population of Muslims in the United States . When President Obama took office, the United States paid several millions of dollars to have a large number of Palestinians, (all Muslim), immigrated here from Palestine . Why? I have no idea. Do you? We don’t pay for other persons to immigrate here, and I’m sure that some of those Muslims moved into Michigan with the large current number of Muslims already established there.
So now in Michigan , when you call the Public Assistance office you are told to “Press 1 for English. Press 2 for Spanish, or Press 3 for Arabic”!
Every time you add a new language to an American program it requires an additional number of persons fluent in that language to process those persons who refuse to learn English in order to live here at an additional cost to the taxpayer! Why are we even allowing persons to immigrate here who cannot provide for themselves and putting them in our welfare system?

Press 3 for Arabic.
This is quite alarming!!! This seems to have happened clandestinely, for, as far as I know, no public announcement or opportunity to vote on this was offered to the American people. They're just adopting an official stance and very likely using tax-payer money for it, in various capacities, without public knowledge or approval.

The following link takes you into the State of Michigan Public Assistance page, (as in Food Stamps etc). You won't have to scroll far before you see the assistance-letters options for...(get this).....English, Spanish, and ARABIC !!! 
When did the ARABIC option sneak into our culture? Will we soon have to listen to our governmental offices, stores, and other venues offer us the option of "pressing 3 for ARABIC?"

Check it out for yourself.


Please inform every red-blooded American you know, that this is happening. It is outrageous! The camel's nose is literally now OFFICIALLY under the tent! I am afraid.

Michigan GOP or some of the good old boys are still not getting it.  Just finished reading the blogprof's latest article http://theblogprof.blogspot.com/2011/01/gop-state-convention-bummer-lt-gov.html in which he reported that the GOP still thinks Michigan turned red this year because of them.  No credit to the Tea Party folks.

But what really disturbed me was seeing their newest logo.  When I see it side by side with the Obama logo, I get chills.  What   is wrong with them?

I hope enough comlaints will make them change it.

This is my version:

Thanks to Deb O'Hagan for her detailed accounting about our new county leadership.

The Oakland County Executive Committee met last night and elected new officers.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NEW Oakland County Republican Party officers!

Chair: Jim Thienel
Vice Chair: Angela Rivers
Secretary: Lauren Gervason
Treasurer: David Staudt

What a great team in place to move us forward and prepare for 2012!

Jim’s multi-million dollar entrepreneurial business experience, vast knowledge of the party and people involved, his involvement in growing NORC to become the largest republican club in MI, and his tremendous behind the scenes efforts supporting successful candidates, certainly gives him the ability to lead us forward!

Angela’s marketing and image building background will help put a positive and strong face on our party! Her own campaign experience gives her first hand knowledge of what it takes to recruit and elect conservative candidates!

Lauren’s long and successful record of fundraising for candidates such as Mitt Romney, Joe Knollenberg, and most recently Rick Snyder will help bring in much needed funds for our county party to win in 2012. She is a graduate of U of D law school and has worked for the OCRP in finance and fundraising prior to the Snyder campaign!

David’s experience as our current treasurer ensures financial continuity at a critical time! He is also committed to upgrading the OCRP web presence and making it the number one webpage in the country! This is key to opening up the lines of communication between all of us!

The new OCRP leadership stressed the importance of working together, providing transparency, building the grassroots, and welcoming the tea party efforts and ideas. They have an open door policy to each and every one of us. As Jim said last night, ‘don’t talk about me, talk to me’. He also said ‘ I have always let people know what I like and dislike and expect the same from all of you’. And if you know Jim, he couldn’t have said it any better and meant it more J.

I hope you are as excited as I am and are ready to work with and become an active part of the team. They will need our support in terms of manpower, ideas, and finances. It’s up to us to make sure they get it so OCRP is successful in 2012 and beyond!

Deb O’Hagan
OCRP Executive Committee Member
West Bloomfield 8th Precinct Delegate
Lakes Area Tea Party Coordinator

I  have written before about the TSA (Thousands Standing Around) and their unfair and unjustified abuse of passengers.   http://mymichtaxparty.blogspot.com/2010/11/tsa-thousands-standing-around.html
 But after reading about this gentleman that has a urostomy bag and was humiliated to such a degree,  I now think we need to seriously take a stand on this.  Enough is enough. 

This month Transportation Security Administration agents hauled aside a white, 61-year-old retired Lansing special ed schoolteacher bound for Orlando from Metro Detroit airport and — in a rough pat-down — broke the bladder cancer survivor's urostomy bag.

"I am a good American and I want safety for all passengers as much as the next person," Sawyer told MSNBC. "But if this country is going to sacrifice treating people like human beings in the name of safety, then we have already lost the war."
