The Jeff Bezos Post sent two reporters Grand Haven, Michigan, a town of 11,011 people and the county seat of Ottawa County. Their job was to do his newspaper’s version of a story in Politico in February, “What It Looks Like When the Far Right Takes Control of Local Government.”
What they might just as well say out loud is that it is only when conservatives, libertarians, and republicans vote is democracy threatened - and it SHOULD be, for this reason:
"Ours is a constitutional republic that protects individuals from the savagery of mass hysteria."
That is certainly the ideal - and perhaps was true, at some point - maybe still is... in Ottawa County, anyway.
"They closed the county’s office of diversity, equity and inclusion."
One of the best measures taken.
I would not like to live in a county run by The Washington Post
As Barack Hussein Soetoro said, "Elections have consequences."
Well, we conservatives have had to put up with disagreeable consequences for a long time. Now it's their turn.
A victory for the people. A defeat for Bezos and the lefties.
I reckon a safety manager at an HVAC company is more qualified to head the health department than a septic inspector. As for Covid, the former inspector proved she was full of shit, like many of the tanks she used to inspect.
Congratulations citizens of Grand Haven, MI!! Your leadership is a model for countless other counties in our beautiful USA!
Evil despises truth and righteousness. We are indeed in a war between good and evil. We are finally pushing back! Who cares what the evil Post thinks, and other leftist rags for that matter.
Another excellent post Mr. Poca man with the Bentley dreams!!
I stand by what I have always maintained "The more the government does, the worse the problem gets."
The legacy media has morphed from 4th estate to 5th column
“Ottawa County offers a glimpse of what happens when one of the building blocks of American democracy is consumed by ideological battles.”
Bwa bwa bwa. That’s what they say when they lose & right prevails. Sounds lovely to the rest of us. I sure hope it spreads.
Thank you so much for this inspiring article. I live in a totally Blue state, where if you didn't wear a mask you were considered a killer.
As a retired physician I studied all the research papers during the lockdown, on masks, on Ivermectin, on Hydroxychloroquine, on the destructive NIH protocol that required doctors to use medications that were either toxic to the kidneys (Remdesivir), steroids in too low a dose to be effective, and ventilators that most often ended people's lives.
The bureaucratic protocol was designed in such a way that the bioweapons would be considered the only treatment for the virus (which is also a bioweapon created by the DOD through Eco-health alliance in Wuhan) otherwise the bioweapon (falsely labeled a vaccine) could not get Emergency Use Authorization. That meant that instead of treating patients as soon as they became ill as outpatients, with widely used and safe drugs, doctors were told to tell patients, "Come back when you can't breathe." At no time in the 20th century have doctors told patients with an infection "I can't help you until you are near death."
The entire medical community was controlled by public health officials who don't have any patients of their own and never treated patients themselves. Doctors had to follow these protocols or be fired from the medical staff. A few doctors of integrity treated their patients, saved lives, and distinguished themselves. Many were fired from the medical staff of their hospitals and were cyber stalked by social media, and "fact checkers," which made them out to be quacks, when, in fact, they were the best doctors in the country. Drs. McCullough, Pierre Kory, Dr. Marik, Dr. Zelenko, and so many others.
Katherine Watt has done legal research into the laws that made it legal for the DOD to set up a biochemical weapons program and contract with pharmaceutical manufacturers to make and distribute these products labeled as vaccines, but which were bioweapons intended to damage and destroy human beings.https://bailiwicknews.substack.com/. In fact very early on in the pandemic, the US DOD took control of pandemic policy from HHS.
The government used a fake pandemic as an excuse to shutdown the society and bring the economy to a near collapse, to use a bioweapon on its people and then to change voting rules to enable a vast number of fraudulent ballots using multiple fraudulent methods, in order to make sure that Donald Trump would never again be elected President and in order to make sure that as few MAGA candidates won as possible.
In the face of all this evil, it is indeed like shining the light of God on us all, to print this article about honest patriots in Michigan. Thank you, Don Surber.
Change is easiest at the local level..at school boards and in Ottawa county. The Bezos Post’s opinions are irrelevant, as is Foxnews’ now.
Good for Ottawa County. As I recall, voting for the opposition, let alone winning, is punishable by jail time in most Communist countries, and Michigan qualifies on that count. So I understand the Post’s confusion. They’ve moved into the Post-Republican period ( See what I did there?). You’re only allowed to vote for Democrats. Hey, at least Ottawa County had a fair election. We can’t even get that in Arizona, a red state, where RINOs help the Left steal elections rather than let the process work as planned and the people have their lawful vote counted. This is not your father’s Oldsmobile.
A quote from @JeremyRedfernFL that seems useful here “I’m sorry the Constitution is happening to you.”
About 20 years ago, I spent a week on Ottawa County on a project. Some work involved me being out and about at 2am. Never felt safer. Really enjoyed the area, and I usually hate larger places.
The Wikipedia entry for Ottawa County has this not surprisingly biased sentence in the opening paragraph: “As of 2023, the county's board of commissioners has been described as far-right by national and Michigan-based media organizations, with former official of President Donald Trump, John Gibbs, chosen by the board to serve as the county administrator.”
I loved your poll today. Definitely ignoring it.
"An Otherwise Nondescript Michigan County F*cked Around With Its Career Public Servants." I love this strange new world we live in. Bureaucrats aren't "public servants." If you've ever been to the DMV or dealt with a building inspector, they're petty little bureaucrats who have to justify their jobs. We should definitely fuck with them more.
Certainly appreciate your reporting this. We need to work in the trenches, i.e. all levels of government, to bring sanity back if it is at all possible.
If only Donald Trump had the cojones the first time to really clean house. I hope he's learned his lesson for the second round assuming the diaper-filling fool and his party occupying the White House now don't manage to steal it again.
