Today is election day in Michigan, where a primary is being held for party nominees for all non-Presidential offices which are going to be decided in November.
And the results of several races for the Michigan Legislature have important consequences in our fight against Islamism and the jihad. Sadly, people aren’t taking things very seriously, if turnout at my polling place was any indication–at 9:30 a.m. Eastern, I was only the sixth person to cast a vote.
Here is my analysis and (if you vote in those districts in Michigan) endorsements in three key races that have important results concerning Islam’s jihad and our fight for freedom:
* Michigan’s 37th House District (Farmington, Farmington Hills) Republican Primary: As I told readers, a sleazy political hack who is in bed with CAIR, Hezbollah, and Iran–Paul Welday–is running for State Representative in the Republican Primary against brilliant conservative businessman, Richard Lerner–who has my endorsement.
Welday, a lobbyist, is on the payroll of Iranian terrorist group, Mujahideen-e-Khalq, a group that helped kidnap and hold hostage our U.S. Embassy officials in Iran for 444 days. He’s trying to get the group’s terrorist designation removed. He also helped cover up and avoid prosecution of ongoing Medicaid fraud by thousands of pregnant Islamic illegal aliens at the hospital his brother heads and for which he is the lobbyist. He heaped praise on CAIR calling them the most democratic group he’s ever seen at an event in 2004 and helped his former boss, Congressman Joe Knollenberg a/k/a Hezbollah Joe, send $86 of your tax money to Hezbollah in 2000 and 2001.
Read all the details on Paul Welday. He has bigger ambitions, like reaching Congress. STOP HIM NOW. AND Vote for Richard Lerner.
* Michigan’s 1st House District (the Grosse Pointes and a sliver of Detroit)–Republican Primary: I have had the pleasure of speaking at length with John Simon, a bright, conservative 23-year-old half-Lebanese Maronite Christian, who reminds me of myself when I ran for the Michigan House at age 21. I hope, though, that unlike me, he doesn’t lose by one vote. He’s walked his district twice, and knocking on doors wins elections. Simon is the example of the type of Arab we need to promote in America, and who is rarely given a voice in the face of whining, vociferous Muslim extremists.
Simon’s key opponent, Pete Waldmeir, a 77-year-old former Detroit Newsistan columnist is very well known to me because he wrote an anti-Semitic, anti-Israel column against me in 1998 on the eve of election day when I was running for the Michigan House. When he wrote for the Detroit Newsistan, many of his colleagues at the paper were convinced he was on the take, and so was I. I also believed he was paid off by my opponent to write his vicious, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel column. The guy’s a scumbag and a liberal who constantly sided with trial lawyers and ambulance chasers. Oh, and he attacked John Simon’s father on his blog. Very low.
Vote for John Simon.
* Michigan’s 12th House District (Southwest Detroit’s Hispanic Area)–Democratic Primary: Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian Muslim extremist whose candidacy was touted across the country on extremist Muslim and anti-Israel mailing lists, is unfortunately a viable candidate for this seat.
Tlaib was a top official at ACCESS, the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services, the agency that gets millions in your tax money to help illegal aliens, fight immigration laws, support Hezbollah and HAMAS. ACCESS was raided by the FBI for engaging in Medicaid fraud, by helping import thousands of pregnant Muslim alien women to America to have their kids here (terrorist anchor babies) and defraud Medicaid, which paid for the deliveries. ACCESS helped supply the fraudulent social security numbers.
Yesterday, Tlaib–about whom I’d never written before–attacked me on Detroit’s National Palestinian Radio (NPR) affiliate for daring to bring out her agency’s engagement in the silent jihad against America from within.
Vote for anyone but Rashida Tlaib.
