Michigan has something of a split personality. The political landscape is a study in contrasts. For most of its post-Civil War history, Michigan politics has been dominated by Republicans. Yet at the same time, Michigan has spawned some of the most virulent leftist politicians and organizations in the U.S., and they have had a disproportionate impact on Michigan and the nation as a whole. At the same time, Michigan has one of the largest Arab American populations in the country, including both Muslims and Christians, a potentially explosive combination. Michigan is rated number 6 of the top ten Muslim populated states as a percent of the total state population.
Republicans currently hold substantial majorities in both houses of the state legislature. The governor, attorney general and secretary of state are all Republicans. The GOP has held the state Senate every year since 1992, currently by a majority of 27 to 10. The house has been turned over to the Democrats intermittently for only seven of those 26 years. Republicans currently control 63 of the House’s 110 seats, with 46 controlled by Democrats and one vacancy.The governor’s office has been held by Republicans for the past eight years.The office of the Secretary of State has been held every year since 1995.
At the federal level, Democrats have fared much better. With the exception of Robert Griffin (1966-1978) and Spencer Abraham (1995-2000), Democrats have held both U.S. Senate seats since 1965. From 1965 until 2002, Democrats held the majority of U.S. House seats for all but eight years. Since 2002 Republicans have held the majority for all but two years.
The Kavanaugh Supreme Court Senate hearings both transfixed and horrified America. Over the last few weeks, many have watched in increasing disbelief at the theatrics, grandstanding, walk-outs, and complete lack of goodwill exhibited by the Democratic contingent of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Most Americans who follow politics superficially, or not at all, must be wondering what has happened to the Democratic Party. Would Harry S. Truman or John F. Kennedy behave this way?
If one studies the backgrounds of these senators, however, their outrageous behavior becomes less of a mystery. All of these senators are—at least to some degree—socialists.
Several have connections to communist or Islamist front groups. At least three members are proteges of wealthy stealth socialist Steve Phillips, a former supporter of the pro-China League of Revolutionary Struggle. Several also have connections to supporters of hostile foreign powers.
These Democratic senators would struggle to pass any form of basic background check to get even the lowest form of security clearance.
They are partisans who demonstrably don’t hesitate to put their own political agendas ahead of their duties to the Constitution and the American public.
The Communist Party USA is involved in campaigning on behalf of U.S. Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat from Arizona.
According to Joelle Fishman, head of the Communist Party’s powerful Political Action Commission, the party has injected itself into races “in two states where a Republican seat can be flipped: AZ (Flake open), TX (Cruz).”
While representing her Phoenix district in recent years, Sinema has portrayed herself as a moderate, even as a slightly conservative Democrat. Sinema, however, is an ardent leftist.
During her term in the Arizona state legislature, for example, Sinema was a founder of the leftist Progressive Caucus. Sinema has helped lead numerous leftist national boards, including the Center for Progressive Leadership, Progressive States Network, and the Democratic Socialists of America-affiliated Progressive Democrats of America (as the only state legislator on the board).

Dr. Scott Lively is the co-author of The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, and was sued by the George Soros-funded Center for Constitutional Rights for “crimes against humanity” for criticizing homosexuality during a trip to Uganda. In this interview with Cliff Kincaid, he talks about a secret CIA report on Hitler’s homosexuality, the infiltration of the American conservative movement by transgender activists, and RINO Republicans pushing the agenda of sexual perversion.
