Republican gubernatorial hopeful Garrett Soldano unveiled a set of transparency and anti-corruption proposals that might sound familiar to Michigan Democrats. Soldano, a Kalamazoo chiropractor, said his “Michigan Sunshine 2.0″ platform is modeled after reforms Gov. Gretchen Whitmer supported as a 2018 candidate but hasn’t delivered on. It’s also a response to sexual harassment and ethics investigations facing former House Speaker Lee Chatfield, a Republican who left the chamber due to term limits in 2021.

Under the new policy, first detailed to the AP, Americans will be able to either purchase home testing kits for free under their insurance or submit receipts for the tests for reimbursement, up to the monthly per-person limit.

I fooled around and fell in love. No, not that kind of “in love.” Guys like me who marry up don’t make that mistake if they know what’s good for them. No, I fell in love . . . with a puppy. And since I lost him a few days ago, there’s a hole in my heart this Christmas. My friend Jonah Goldberg is about the best writer I know. With that kind of touched-by-God talent, you would think the first thing he’d want you to know about him is that he’s a writer.

In the latest edition of the theater of the absurd, White House COVID coordinator, Jeff Zientz, had some “stark” words for the untouchables, i.e., the unvaccinated masses. At the December 17 press briefing, Zientz commented on the incoming Omicron wave, sounding rather ominous and depressing, “. . . the Omicron variant is more transmissible and our medical experts anticipate it will lead to a rise in cases,” said Zientz. “But unlike last winter, we now have the power to protect ourselves. We are intent on not letting Omicron disrupt work and school for the vaccinated. You’ve done the right thing, and we will get through this.

While University of Pennsylvania transgender swimmer Lia Thomas, who spent three years at the Ivy League school swimming as a male, has been busy smashing female pool records, friction has been building within the team, according to a Penn female swimmer who said she feared for her ability to find employment after graduating from college for sharing her honest opinion about a transgender teammate. For that reason, OutKick is granting her anonymity to speak out. Thomas’ latest round of swimming record destruction came at a three-day meet in Akron, Ohio where numerous pool, meet and program records weren’t just destroyed but lowered to a point where they may never be broken.

Mollie Hemingway has written a blockbuster book about all the strands of deception and falsehoods that converged to take down Donald Trump on Nov. 3 and 4 and beyond (and before) in her book: Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech and the Democrats Seized Our Elections (Regnery, 2021). I twice asked two Barnes and Noble stores in two weeks whether they had it in stock, and each time -- no. So I finally had to order it online. It has ten chapters, plus a prologue and an epilogue. The total number of endnotes is 1,243 (I added them up), many having extensive commentaries.

This year marked the 25th anniversary of my arrival in the United States, and as the cliché goes, it feels like yesterday. Memories of war and life in a refugee camp penetrate my consciousness daily. The life of cruel suffering, being witness to genocide, and struggles as a refugee and later as an immigrant are part of my ontological makeup. Such events change you in previously unimaginable ways—fostering emotional strength but also existential fatigue. I left Bosnia at the end of 1992, almost a year into the war.

The Interstate 94 freeway remained closed Sunday due to flooding in parts of Dearborn and Detroit after storms hit the region over the weekend, according to Michigan's Department of Transportation. "Until the rivers that have crested because of the rain start to ebb, that water has nowhere to go," said Diane Cross, spokeswoman of MDOT. "We cannot pump it anywhere because it just comes right back into the freeway." I-94 is still flooded from east Dearborn to east of I-75.

LANSING — A Michigan chemical company that arranged for Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to fly to Florida in its private jet is under scrutiny from the Federal Aviation Administration, prompting a change in how the flight will be paid for, Whitmer's campaign disclosed Thursday. Whitmer's reelection campaign will pay PVS Chemicals of Detroit for the $27,521 cost of the flight to visit Whitmer's father, not a nonprofit corporation that Whitmer controls, as announced earlier, Whitmer campaign attorney Christopher Trebilcock said in a letter obtained by the Free Press.

Bill and Hillary Clinton are sensing an opportunity to get back into the political fray as the Democrats look poised to be heading into a devastating midterm this fall. Politico Playbook reported Friday that the power couple believe their centrist, deal-making brand of politics could be useful as party members have tripped up President Joe Biden's agenda. They also believe that the public may have moved on from former President Bill Clinton's scandalous past, as the ratings for FX's Impeachment: American Crime Story - produced by Monica Lewinsky - were surprisingly low, Playbook said.

President Joe Biden was not making a 'human' comparison between opponents of his voter rights push with racists and segregationists in a speech this week, said the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Friday. Rather he simply meant to compare the actions of those who opposed reform with the likes of George Wallace and other notorious figures. The clean-up came after critics accused Biden of divisive rhetoric, and the president has since seen his initiative collapse as two hold-out Democratic senators said they could not support his plan to change Senate rules in order to pass the legislation.

A county judge in Texas dealt a blow to Governor Greg Abbott's controversial 'Operation Lone Star' after ruling his national guard's apprehension of an illegal immigrant unconstitutional Thursday. Operation Lone Star was created by Abbott amidst a wave of illegal immigrants from Central America crossing the US-Mexico border. It deploys law enforcement in areas human and drug smugglers are known to use. The ruling could see the initiative stifled with attorneys saying that it could open a path for other immigrants to challenge their detention.(Snip)On Thursday, Judge Jan Soifer ruled in favor of Jesus Alberto Guzman Curipoma, an Ecuadorian engineer arrested in September and charged with criminal trespassing.

Given the relatively recent demise of the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Indians, the Minnesota Vikings should be looking over their shoulder. Western Washington University (WWU), which also has a Viking mascot, is considering dropping it because it’s colonialist and white supremacist and all that, and if they do, the NFL team may soon afterward have to play as the Minnesota Football Team for a while. The College Fix reported Thursday that “Western Washington University may scrap its Viking mascot and is currently conducting an investigation to help make a final decision on the issue.

Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin on Friday, tweeting out a Martin Luther King quote about 'the white moderate' who ends up blocking 'the flow of social progress.'It came less than 24 hours after the two holdout senators effectively killed President Biden's hopes of pushing through voting rights legislation. As if there were any doubt at what she meant, she cheekily added: 'This is a subtweet.'

COVID-19 vaccines allow breakthrough infections. Their duration "appears to be limited." On top of that, wealthy countries caused harm by bidding up vaccine prices to hoard the "limited supply" available last year. These are not criticisms from a purported purveyor of COVID misinformation. They came from the biggest private funder of global health research. Bill Gates, whom the National Institutes of Health called a "superhero" for his eponymous foundation's lavish health spending, frowned on the results of COVID vaccine research and distribution practices in a short Twitter chat Tuesday. "We need vaccines that prevent re-infection and have many years of duration," he told chat host Devi Sridhar, chair of global public health at the

Retiree Andy Roberts, from St. Albans, West Virginia, relied on the checks to help raise his two young grandchildren, whom he and his wife adopted because the birth parents are recovering from drug addiction.The Robertses are now out $550 a month.

A shocking paper trail shows Paul Pelosi Jr.'s connections to a host of fraudsters, rule-breakers and convicted criminals.
