Are the Media, and Elements of the US Government Involved in Sedition and Treason?

There’s evidence the “Free Press” is no longer “Free”, but rather a propaganda arm for one political party, and an attack attack dog aganist the other party.

To this reporter, it seems we have come a long way from the eloquent statement by the Founding Fathers of forming a more “perfect union” and the “establishment of justice”.

However, it now appears the “Union” of “We the People”, has recently taken a step into an even more sinister dark hole. Are the Media, the Democratic Party, the FBI, the Justice Department and other deep state elements of our Government, involved in a conspiracy to overthrow a legitimately elected Government and its President? If so then “We the People” are on the precipice of a failed democracy and nation state as they knew it.presidentabrahamlincoln

“This country belongs to the people. Whenever they grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their right to amend it, or their revolutionary right to dismember it or overthrow it.”
— Abraham Lincoln

It’s obvious to everyone the “Free Press” is no longer “Free”, but is instead expressing and publishing political ideology that favors one political party over the other. A Free Press is supposed to be impartial and objectively report the news without bias. That’s to serve three purposes, (1) to keep “We the People” truthfully informed about what the Government is doing, (2) keep the Government honest and (3) to preserve for posterity, the guaranteed individual freedoms envisioned by the Founding Father’s and codified in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution for “We the People”.

The Founders intent for a “Free Press, wasn’t that it would become a propaganda arm of one political party and act as an attack dog against an opposing political party. Nor was the intent that a “Free Press” be a protector and enabler for a corrupt and criminal Government, by not reporting their evil deeds. However, it’s quite clear that’s exactly what ‘s happened. Evidence clearly shows that vast elements of the “Free Press” have become apologists for Democratic party, and for a corrupt “Deep State Government”, whose criminality is being revealed daily.

The vitriol coming out of the Media and their Political ally, the Democratic Party, is tantamount to “inciting the populace to riot” in an attempt to overthrow a duly elected Government by an act of impeachment. At the same time, they totally ignore the daily revelations about the criminality committed by the former Obama Administration, FBI, Justice Department, State Department, CIA and of course the Clinton Family.

The Incitement to Riot Press, just won’t report any of it, as they continue their daily stream of sedition attacks on the President as they try to incite people to riot and join the “impeach the President” movement. This is unparalleled in the 242 year History of the “UNION”.

Everyday the Media engages in “vitriolic incitement” remarks about President Trump and his supporters. What’s even more insidious is what FBI agents, in the person of Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, were saying and doing as they planned and executed a “back up insurance plan” to destroy President Trump, if by chance, he was elected. Are the Media, the Democrats and certain elements of the FBI, Justice Department, State Department, CIA, NAS and deep state elements, either separately or collectively, trying to fabricate reasons to overthrow a duly elected Government? There is more and more evidence coming out daily to prove that answer is yes!

As of this writing, an intelligence memo appears to show real seditious and treasonous acts were carried out by high level employees of the FBI and Justice Department. Also just coming out is news is that the FBI lost five months of texts between the FBI conspirators Lisa Page and Pete Strzok. Does the FBI really think “We the People”, are that stupid to believe that lie?

So when does all the above demonstrate a conspiracy between the above parties to “incite a riot” with the intent to overthrow a duly elected President and the Government? Millions have died protecting our freedom and are dying every week to preserve it. However, the Fake News media, the political corruptors, and there supporters, are trying to destroy the UNION.

At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, when queried as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation, a woman directed this question to Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” Ben Franklin responded, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

“We the People” are on the verge of losing the Republic.

Executive Travel – Hidden Fees

contributed by Executive Travel (
For the Week of: December 18, 2017

Here is how a $116 flight on Allegiant Airlines turns into $571 –

Buyer Beware! The low cost airlines such as Allegiant, Frontier and Spirit do a great job of promoting low prices. What the airlines don’t want you to know is that in many cases you will actually pay hundreds of dollars more for your tickets when you arrive at the airport with all their “hidden fees”. I recently went to the Allegiant web site and found an amazing price flying from Grand Island, Nebraska to Las Vegas for $116 round trip. I decided to figure out the total cost if I wanted to do what many people do and take my golf clubs for a few rounds of golf to Glitter Gulch My plan was to take my golf clubs, one suit case, one carry-on and get seat assignments along with a boarding pass by calling the Allegiant toll-free phone number. I hope you are sitting down. List below are all the extra costs.

•  Roundtrip airfares – $116
•  Seat selection fee – $80
•  Call center booking fee – $15
•  Boarding pass printing fee – $10 ($5 one way X 2)
•  Carry-on luggage fee – $100 ($50 one way X 2)
•  Checked luggage fee – $100 ($50 one way x 2)
•  Oversized luggage (golf clubs) – $150 ($75 one way X 2)
•  Total cost of airline ticket – $571

So it turns out taking the “low cost” airline is not such a great deal after all. As the late-great Paul Harvey used to say, “Now you know the rest of the story”.

Ottawa County Administrator Applauds Common Sense

The Michigan House of Representatives narrowly defeated a proposal to cut the State income tax early Thursday morning. The process unfolded much like those of us responsible for balancing local government budgets have seen too many times before. Tax cuts were proposed without identifying which expenditures would be cut or how new revenue would be captured to cover the gap. We concur that tax cuts properly executed can improve taxpayer disposable income and have other positive economic effects, however, those cuts which are blind to the impact on state and local budgets and services are ill-advised. We wonder how many Representatives understood that the proposed cuts could significantly impact State Revenue Sharing payments to local governments? Revenue Sharing is the second or third highest revenue source in many local government budgets, paying for law enforcement, fire, jail, courts and many other essential public services.

Rep. Daniela Garcia and Rep. Jim Lilly stood up for making solid, informed decisions. They thought those decisions through to the consequences. Ottawa County very much appreciates and applauds their commonsense approach.

Courage…The Guts to Fail

By: Sylvia Allen

Someone quipped that a classified newspaper ad read: “For sale. Parachute. Only used once, never opened, small stain.”

I realize that we cannot afford to fail in some endeavors. But I also know that we cannot afford NOT to fail in most of what we do. Unfortunately, too many of us live by the motto: If at first you don’t succeed, don’t admit that you tried. Why? We often feel ashamed or embarrassed when we fall flat.

In his book THE COURAGE TO FAIL (McGraw-Hill, Inc. 1993), Art Mortell tells about a conversation he had with baseball’s Lou Brock. It took place when Brock held the record for stolen bases. He was about 35 years old at the time and his days as a professional player were winding down. Brock was talking about why he successfully stolemore bases than younger, faster players.

“When you start out in baseball,” Brock said, “you’re young and you have the speed and reflexes. However, when you try to steal second base and you get thrown out, it’s a long walk back to the dugout, with 40,000 fans watching you. When you reach my age, you come to understand that records are not set by being the quickest, but by the willingness to look bad in the eyes of others.”

There are other ways to avoid failure throughout life:
* Never ask anyone out. There will be no possibility of rejection and embarrassment.
* Never ask for a promotion. That way you will not risk the humiliation of being turned down.
* Never go back to school. You cannot fail a class you do not take.
* Never change careers. You’ll never fail at something you never try.
* Never try anything you’ve never done before.

If success is just avoiding failure, I don’t want it. But if success is about pursuing a passion or finding the guts to risk in order to experience life fully, then I want it. Even if it means a lot of long walks back to the dugout while everyone is watching.

State Investment Needed to Ensure Sustainable Disaster Relief

BY: Christine Robere, President and CEO of United Way of the Lakeshore

The Flint Water Crisis has cast a light on the necessity to be prepared when disaster strikes. One service that has unwaveringly shone tremendous value throughout this situation, and which has proven worthy of state support, is Michigan 2-1-1.
2-1-1 is a confidential service that is free of charge to users and provides referral agency assistance. It helps those in need of assistance in our lakeshore communities of Muskegon, Newaygo and Oceana Counties, as well as throughout the state, to connect to thousands of different programs and services. The program has been instrumental in providing the Flint Water Task Force with timely information in Flint. This has allowed the group to make informed decisions day-in and day-out, all while keeping residents safe by providing the latest information and updates.

It’s far from the first time 2-1-1 has engaged in disaster relief in Michigan. Amidst flooding in Grand Rapids and Detroit, the recent tornado in Wyoming, and wildfires in the Upper Peninsula, 2-1-1 has been at the helm 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ready to help residents connect to – necessary resources and information.

Yet the program receives only $500,000 of its nearly $7 million in operational costs from the state. The rest is contributed by local United Ways, including the United Way of the Lakeshore. This funding inequity is an unsustainable model for the future, with some communities already unable to support 2-1-1 and the critical services it provides due to funding constraints.

Therefore, Michigan 2-1-1 is requesting a total of $3.5 million from the state to ensure the organization’s sustainability and to improve its infrastructure. This will allow the 2-1-1 network to meet the state’s demands for real-time information about the needs and questions residents have on a local level. This funding request includes a $500,000 fund for disaster and emergency relief that could roll over in years where it is underutilized. This will help ensure that Michigan residents in the midst of a crisis receive support immediately, when it is most needed. To chart a course for the future under this increased investment, the organization would develop a planning committee of state stakeholders and 2-1-1 leadership responsible for stewardship of the emergency funds.

Given their continued commitment to their lakeshore constituents, I urge Senator Goeff Hansen and Representatives Marcia Hovey-Wright, Holly Hughes, and Jon Bumstead to support the efforts to bolster the Michigan 2-1-1 network.

The sustainable funding will help 2-1-1 meet demands that have become evident in recent months, as well as achieve long-term goals to best serve Michigan residents. 2-1-1 currently supports 97 percent of the state, but the first priority under additional state support would be to provide statewide quality assurance, embracing a true statewide model for the organization.
Crisis support requires quality staff members, and ongoing training to arm them with the necessary skills needed to provide relief. The funding increase would support training sessions, including Veteran and Military Cultural Competency training, to AmeriCorps and other 2-1-1 staff.

As our culture continues to evolve and modes of communication change, 2-1-1 needs to be able to meet local residents where they are located and with current technology. For that reason, testing and deploying a mobile app, expanding online chat, and testing text-based assistance are top priorities for the organization in coming years.

In the event of a disaster, residents of our lakeshore communities need to know that they have somewhere to turn for critical information and resources. 2-1-1 will be that resource, but only if Michigan invests in its sustainable future.
2-1-1 is a program that connects citizens in need of assistance to the appropriate community resources. Locally, It is partially funded by United Way of Lakeshore. For more information on 211, visit United Way of the Lakeshore is uniting to inspire change and build thriving communities. Our Bold Goal – 10,000 more working families meet their basic needs by 2025. For more information, contact United Way of the Lakeshore at 231-332-4047 or visit

Riddle for Seniors…

Today’s riddle for seniors…Here is the situation:

You are on a horse, galloping at a constant speed.
On your right side is a sharp drop-off.
On your left side is an elephant traveling at the same speed as you.
Directly in front of you is a galloping kangaroo and your horse is unable to
overtake it.
Behind you is a lion running at the same speed as you and the kangaroo.
What must you do to get out of this highly dangerous situation?

Think logically before you track down for the answer.




Quietly get off the merry-go-round!

A Poem by Dana

“Who are you, Papa?” she said.
I smiled, and in a moment before I could speak
I realized the hats I wear are so many
But to her
I am he that in the darkness waits
Till your asleep and all is safe
For when the light is gone and no one’s near
I’m the one, your fears fear
I am he who moves toward that which comes
Stand on guard while your having fun
Fix your broken mend your tear
Looking up from you, you’ll see me there
I am he who will love you no matter what
Since before you were borne, no ands ifs or buts
I loved your mommy when she was small too
It’s true when I tell you, I will always love you
“Your mommy’s daddy” I said
