EXCLUSIVE: Former ‘Dominion’ Project Manager Executed $25 Million Contract with State of Michigan While Serving As Dem Vice Chair


Reported by  

A former project manager for Dominion has been revealed as the Mayor of Lathrup Village, Mich., a small town right on the outskirts of Detroit.

Mayor Mykale “Kelly” Garrett is a veteran Democrat operative in the state of Michigan. New York Young Republican Club President Gavin Wax made the discovery in a Twitter post, noting that she has been earmarked by the Michigan Democratic State Central Committee:

 

Garrett also attempted to get onto the county commission in Oakland County. She lost her Democrat primary race but her comments in a pre-election interview show how deep her ties in the Michigan Democrat Party truly are.

“I also want to learn more about Oakland County government,” Garrett said during an interview with the Oakland County Times – talking up the “inclusion and diversity” she has brought to her small town.

“If anyone knows me knows that I put Lathrup where it’s at right now,” she arrogantly boasted.

The interview started to get interesting when Garrett started talking up her “professional experience.” She could not help but flaunt her credentials.

“I was the deputy director for voter protection for the Michigan Democratic Party,” she explained.

From her words, it seems like she supports policies like the ones that turned the absentee voter counting board in Detroit into a third-world style free-for-all.

“I’m very passionate about everyone that can vote, who wants to vote, should be able to cast a ballot and that ballot count and that is something that I still, um, fight for,” she said.

Garrett also leads Mothering Justice, a nonprofit organization that agitates for socialism and wealth redistribution. She continued to brag in the interview about her deep ties in the Democrat Party of Michigan.

“I was the vice chair of the Oakland County Democratic Party, and I just recently stopped being the chair of the Southfield-Lathrup Democratic Party,” she said.

“Because of some of the volunteer positions that I have, I actually know people across the state. I have a very good relationship with our governor, with our secretary of state,” Garrett added.

She failed to mention her ties to Dominion in the interview. Wax noted that she helped broker a $25 million contract between Dominion and the state of Michigan while still serving as a vice chair for the Oakland County Democrat Party.

 

DEFIANCE: Michigan Barber Vows to Stay Open ‘Until Jesus Walks In or Until They Arrest Me’


Reported by   | Published May 7, 2020

77-year-old Karl Manke opened his barbershop on Monday, flouting Whitmer’s executive order forcing his store and thousands of other businesses across the state to stay closed.

“I don’t need the governor to be my mother,” Manke said. “I have one. God bless her, she’s gone now. I don’t need another mother. I can make these adult decisions myself.”

“I can … run my business how I feel I should run it,” he added. “To tell you the truth, I am scared but I didn’t really have any choice. I need to work through that fear and open up.” has made it clear that Manke is operating in violation of Whitmer’s orders and that he may be subject to fines or criminal sanctions because of his unwillingness to submit.

“Violations should still be directed to law enforcement agencies overseeing the jurisdiction in which the offense occurred,” Jarvi said. “We are confident those agencies will use their discretion and authority appropriately in enforcing the Governor’s orders.”

Manke is very aware of the possible consequences but is operating in spite of what may happen to him. The devoted Christian believes that his stand is about something bigger.

“I’ll be open until Jesus walks in or until they arrest me,” Manke said.

The community is receptive to his stand, with patriots from throughout the state gathering outside of his shop to show their solidarity with the heroic business owner.

“We came out here to support him,” said Kathy Tran, who drove hours from Milford to demonstrate her support for Manke’s defiant stand. “Our main goal is to support the community and small businesses. I feel like every business should be open and they can do it safely.”

On Thursday, a mass of protesters gathered outside of his store to show their support for Manke and give him their business as Michigan residents get restless about the shutdown that keeps getting extended by their political opportunist of a governor.

Liberty-minded attorney Nicholas Somberg has offered to represent Manke for free if necessary as the patriot continues to push back against Whitmer’s executive orders.

“He’s a patriot and we need more people like him. There is a lot of people out here supporting him,” Somberg said as he livestreamed the protest on his Facebook page.

Civil disobedience is taking hold throughout the country as Americans are unwilling to accept another great depression over coronavirus panic.

Selfless vet returns to Iraq to fight ISIS: ‘I’m not serving my country — I’m serving Christians’

Much like the original Crusades were a response to Muslim aggression, today brave Christian warriors have gone to the Middle East to battle the Islamic State. Weeks ago, a team from CBS’ “60 Minutes” came across Brett Felton, 28, of Troy, Mich., who slipped into Iraq to help the people of the mostly abandoned Christian town of Bakufa.

He is not only there to fight, but to train the Christians who stayed behind to defend the town.

Jeff Newton, a “60 Minutes producer” sat down with him for an interview and was clearly impressed.

“If you look at him, he’s literally all tattooed out like a biker,” he said on “60 Minutes Overtime” Sunday. ”But if you look really closely at his tattoos, they’re like Jesus Christ crying blood tears out of his eyes and stuff like that — so he’s kind of a hardcore Christian.”

Felton is no stranger to Iraq. In 2006 he was deployed there with the 10th Mountain Division, 2nd Battalion, 14th Infantry Regiment.

Months ago when he was studying abroad in Lebanon, he slipped back into Iraq to take the fight to ISIS.

Other Christians from abroad have started to trickle in to help the effort, but CBS’ Lara Logan doesn’t like their chances. “They’re under-funded. They don’t have good weapons. They’re completely outgunned by the Islamic State,” she said. “When you’re with them, you have this terrible feeling that many of them would be massacred if the Islamic State really turned its attention to taking back those villages.”

But Felton is undeterred.

“People say, ‘You’re crazy for doin’ this,’” he said. “I think people are crazy for not doing their part, to be honest with you. To me, for the Christians here,” he added. “It would be an honor to give my life helping these people.”

Hopefully, he won’t have to.
