(Photo: Eric Seals, Eric Seals/Detroit Free Press) WASHINGTON — A U.S. Department of Homeland Security report indicates a 6-month shutdown of the Poe Lock in Sault Ste. Marie, if one occurred, would plunge the nation into recession, closing factories and mines, halting auto and appliance production in the U.S. for most of a year and […]
Michigan governor Rick Snyder has released thousands of emails over the past few weeks in response to urgent calls for answers on Flint’s water crisis.
Those kept in the jail — including pregnant women — were forced to drink and bathe in the contaminated water, as well as eat food cooked with it. They were not provided bottled water until January 23.
Gordon Duff – Industrial workers, according to Reagan, were a threat to America’s security, their love of unions, of social justice and their desire to improve their lot. Attempts by those of “non-inherited wealth” to gain social mobility was seen as a “share the wealth” threat.

The story of the U.S.S. Michigan begins in Erie, Pennsylvania. On her launch day, December 5, 1843, the Navy gunboat U.S.S. Michigan became stuck on the ways in the harbor at Erie. Most of the Erie populace had gathered to see her go straight to the bottom. They knew she would sink because she was […]
I am not in any way condoning, endorsing, approving, or sanctioning the deplorable behavior of those ill-natured brutes who engaged in four rounds of fast and furious fisticuffs with Fox News reporter Steven Crowder.
Octogenarian billionaire mall developer A. Alfred Taubman has been sued for $29 million by a Michigan flight attendant who claimed he sexually harassed her numerous times aboard his private plane.In a complaint filed Thursday with the federal court in Detroit, Nicole Rock accused her former boss, 88, of a variety of improper conduct in the roughly six years she worked for the married father of three
Around me, 50 million Americans are homeless, living in travel trailers, in tents. 500,000 young veterans, too many with families, have applied for 100% disability compensation. All have supportable medical diagnoses of total disability. Their “paperwork” will remain in limbo for years, until they kill themselves, perhaps their families too. For the best of them, luck, as it has for me, will intercede.
Both the methods and propaganda of the GOP are not only un-American, but right out of the Nazi playbook. The GOP leadership has calculated that the more miserable they can keep the American people, the better chance they have of regaining power. That, in turn, would allow them to get on with the business of totally enslaving the American people. So they routinely employ tactics from right out of Joseph Gobbels’ handbook on the effective use of propaganda to keep us so angry and divided that we’re blind to their concerted effort to keep America ignorant, distracted, and miserable.
So what I’d like to know is this – if a shade tree journalist sitting up in his den in the heart of a Los Angeles ghetto could see what was going on, why couldn’t the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, CNN and all of the other media networks; why couldn’t Harvard, Yale, and all of the various and sundry Ph.D.s from America’s great institutions of learning; and why couldn’t the nation’s so called “think tanks,” all of the nation’s political scientists, and the United States Congress figure it out?
In spite of the GOP claim that they believe in limited government, The Michigan Messenger has reported that newly elected Republican governor, Rick Snyder is poised to sign an emergency management bill that will hand total control of local governments over to “emergency managers” appointed by the government. “According to the law, which has already been approved in the House, the governor will be able to declare “financial emergency” in towns or school districts and appoint someone to fire local elected officials, break contracts, seize and sell assets, and eliminate services.”
Michigan governors aren’t breaking entirely new ground in the ongoing U.S. collapse into fascism. Sure, they’ll be able to overthrow local elected governments and install cronies and corporations to rule over Americans without the pretense of public servants mediating. But the president of the United States can already do that to the entire country. I wonder if anyone remembers these lines from Congressman Dennis Kucinich’s articles of impeachment for George W. Bush:

FIND OUT WHO IS FINANCING AMERICA’S EXTREMIST “PATRIOTIC REVOLT?“ By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor “However, an investigation of site ownership and client lists funding the “Patriotic Revolt” were not what we expected.
