Friends,

I have embarked upon a journey in recent months, through my organization, the Michigan Caregivers Association, fighting corruption in Lansing.

Sadly, there are members of both major political parties that are engaging in this illicit and unlawful process. Certain Republicans and Democrats are in on it and taking money from the bad guys to sell out the industry.

This is why House Bills 5300, 5301 and 5302 are moving at a lightning pace through the process. These monopoly bills have bipartisan support, with Democrats and Republicans down on their knees for reviled lobbyist Steven “Dr. Evil” Linder, the Chamber of Commerce, and other villains out to steal the marijuana industry from the caregivers, medical patients, small businesses, and other entities that have built it into an economic powerhouse.

This is a takeover by the interests that have opposed marijuana for decades. They fought for prohibition until they saw dollar signs after the marijuana industry started to take off. A great example of this phenomenon is former Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof, a Republican who opposed marijuana until he realized he could enrich himself through the industry. Then he whored himself out to the highest bidder while probably breaking the law while doing so.

Meekhof appointed Rick Johnson as chairman of the Michigan medical marijuana licensing board. As part of what appears to be an evident quid pro quo, Johnson gave three licenses to medical marijuana concerns that had bought off Meekhof. He admitted in emails that were obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that he was in communication with Johnson during the licensure process that ultimately favored Meekhof’s clients.

This seems to be in apparent violation of a 2016 law barring representatives of medical marijuana applicants from lobbying licensing board members. Meekhof’s clients, Chesaning Elite, Lapeer Infused and Power Play Sports 2, benefited from paying off Meekhof and his lobbying associates. Their licenses went from being denied to being approved. This is part of the same money-driven agenda of unfairness that is driving support for HB5301, HB5302 and HB5303.

A Detroit News article noted that Meekhof aligned “with the Michigan Chamber of Commerce on 93% of its top issues in 2017 and 2018.” It should come as no surprise that the Chamber, a crony-capitalist institution that lobbies for corporate dominance, was at most recent committee hearing lobbying for the Linder monopoly bills. It is such an incestuous network and they all work together in concert to preserve the corrupt system because they know it benefits them at our expense at the end of the day.

Keep in mind that this is not anything new. These revelations did not come out yesterday. This has been open knowledge for years. It has been widely reported since 2019 that one of the most prominent Republican leaders was involved in an apparent pay-to-play scheme to abuse the rules, in a possibly illegal but certainly immoral act, in order to create a marijuana monopoly. There has been no accountability from the attorney general on this issue as well.

It appears that the powers that be are looking the other way, even though these are Republicans acting in an obvious conflict of interest, in a blatantly corrupt manner, and not even attempting to hide it. Everyone is seemingly lined up at the same trough for the corporate special interests that want to dominate the marijuana industry. This whole incestuous system is incredibly immoral and disgusting, but that is only a reason to fight harder.

There are certainly a handful of Republicans and Democrats who stand for the caregivers against corruption, and God bless them. But there are far too few. This is why the Michigan Caregivers Association does not lobby our lawmakers based on their consciences or their good faith. It usually does not exist. We instead prefer to lobby the people, inform them on what their lawmakers are doing, and then force the legislators to deal with the fallout if they refuse to do what is right.

The Michigan Caregivers Association has set up a web portal making it very easy to oppose monopoly bills HB5301, HB5302 and HB5303 in Lansing. That portal can be accessed at mi-caregivers.com. For additional information, visit our main website where you can make donations to this noble cause and check out our Facebook page where there are daily updates about the fight to prevent a corporate monopoly and stop the Uniparty system from strangling our freedoms and suffocating our livelihoods.

Sincerely,

Your Friend,

George Brikho

Friends,

It has come time to boot scumbag attorney and destroyer of families for profit Michael Taylor from office.

Taylor became infamous throughout Metro Detroit for defending the reprehensible decision to deny stewardship of an elderly couple to their loving daughter. 7 Action News profiled Michael Taylor for his role in this cruel and heinous scam enabled by the courts to break families apart using the law.

7 7thAction News discovered that there were various firms, tied to Taylor and other cronies, that were essentially lobbying for the government to enforce this scheme to keep elderly people from their families. Taylor was reportedly at the heart of this illicit scheme, and he attacked the woman personally who was denied the role of caregiver for her beloved parents.

After he was exposed, Taylor waged a public smear campaign against the victim who spoke out. He slammed the whistleblower and defended her parents being kept away from her, all the while evading an actual interview with reporters looking to question him and hold him accountable. His damage control attempts were far from effective, and his constituents are asking all the right questions.

“Isn’t being a Mayor of Sterling Heights and getting involved as a Lawyer for some clients a conflict of interest?” one constituent asked in a Facebook post.

“How in the world can a Mayor be messed up with some scheme like this?” another constituent asked. 

“How are we to be assured that Mr. Taylor has not used his position as Mayor to the advantage of his business associates?” a constituent asked via an email response to the report.

Of course, we cannot know, and Taylor’s complete unwillingness to take any culpability for his illicit actions show his extreme contempt for the people of Sterling Heights.

7 Action News also reported that Taylor’s actions likely violated an ethics resolution that was passed in the city of Sterling Heights in 2013, which Taylor actually supported at the time.

“Public servants should avoid engaging in any conduct which is likely to bring discredit on themselves and the governmental bodies in which they serve,” the resolution read.

Even though he continues to lie and deny like the lowlife that he is, it is clear that Taylor exploited his position as Sterling Heights Mayor and the additional notoriety it brings in order to drive a wedge between a family and rob a daughter from being able to care for their loved ones and spend time with them in their final days for his own personal and professional gain.

Seniors in Sterling Heights must ask themselves: Is this the kind of man you want representing you? The man who would sentence you to live out your final days cold, alone and desperate if it meant putting another dollar in his pocket. Taylor ripped loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s away from their daughter because this attorney puts his clients and his bottom line ahead of the people. This is not acceptable.

Additionally, Taylor publicly supported Joe Biden for president last year. This means Taylor is directly responsible for Biden’s policies of economic damnation, an end to the Bill of Rights and Constitution, a domestic spying authority that calls for families to rat out their loved ones, and the selling out of our nation to China at breakneck speed.

Every time you pay at least a $1 more a gallon of gas at the pump, remember it was Michael Taylor’s decision — a nakedly-partisan decision that did absolutely nothing but politicize his office for his own self-serving aims — that made it more difficult for you to fill up your tank. We are all paying dearly, with every corrupt actor in Washington D.C. elevated as a result, because Taylor cares more about garnering favorable media headlines than representing the people. It is similar to when he endorsed Black Lives Matter as the orgy of destruction swept the country, which has resulted in a subsequent crime spree that continues to threaten the stability of our communities.

Taylor talked about his children when justifying his support for Biden. The truth is that his children will bear the stain of their father being a disgraced coward who failed the public at a crucial time of our nation’s history. Taylor is a man who will be remembered among the vermin who cared only about lining their pockets as American freedom was destroyed. That is your legacy, and, sadly, your progeny will not be able to escape the sins of their weak and reprehensible father.

CHALDEANS CAN CLEAN UP STERLING HEIGHTS!

Sterling Heights is home to a robust and vibrant Chaldean community with over a quarter of the population being Chaldean. I am proud to say that I have many friends and family members living there. Our community has a chance to be on the forefront of the movement of patriotic Americans from all backgrounds who unite and say NO MORE to political corruption. 

It is time to drain the swamp in Sterling Heights and maintain a local government that we can be proud of. The upcoming city primary elections are scheduled to take place on Aug. 3. Reject the sleazeball lawyer and destroyer of families Michael Taylor, and elect former city councilman and Air Force veteran Ken Nelson for Mayor. The message will be sent that Sterling Heights demands more from their elected officials after Taylor is sent packing.

I have watched President Donald Trump do many great things for our nation, but we need to make sure to stay on him so he does not go astray as many have within our corrupt political system. He is still a man, he is under an incredible amount of pressure, and we must pray for him as well as stay on him when he is making mistakes. This is how we can exert our power as political activists and help make America great again.

Right now, Trump is making a mistake by refusing to declassify certain government documents that would expose a tremendous amount of corruption at the FBI, Department of Justice and other deep state entities. These documents would reveal Bob Mueller’s special counsel investigation of Russian collusion to be a total farce, but Trump is hesitant to release them. The swamp is in Trump’s ear constantly, telling him that releasing the documents would destroy the prestige of the federal government. They are correct, but this is exactly what needs to happen.

The deep state, the military-industrial complex, the international financiers, the globalist cabal, the new world order, or whatever you want to call them are afraid of the sunlight. They operate under the cover of darkness and commit atrocities that we cannot even comprehend. The only way this system can possibly be reformed is for this information to be released to the public. They may say we can’t handle the truth, but we must challenge ourselves to be up to the task. Living in fear and ignorance is causing America a great spiritual and cultural rot.

There are unsolved questions about everything that is important in this country, and people don’t talk about it enough. We have been kept in the dark for too long. Going from JFK to Vietnam to 9/11 to Iraq and so on, we have never been told the truth about any major world event that takes place. We cannot be a dumb, servile, weak, pathetic people and expect for God to bestow us with the blessings of liberty. Trump may be our last chance to turn this around, but he must act wisely. He has done a lot for us, but far more is needed!

Trump has agitated against the powers-that-be magnificently. He has politicized the issue of the deep state and their treasure trove of secret documents frequently, something that no other politician except for Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is willing to do. He deserves credit for that, but he also deserves admonishment for going back on his word. He said he would release documents before the elections, and then recanted. Those documents could possibly have saved the 2018 mid-term elections, which were particularly bad in Michigan for Republicans.

Mr. President: This issue is NOT about scoring political points. It is not a political football you can kick down the road to get better deals for your administration. This is about righting the wrongs that have turned America from the greatest country in the history of the world to a laughingstock that cannot even perform the basic functions of a country. This is about our children’s future and whether they live in a world where truth and justice reign supreme. If Trump fails at draining the swamp and the permanent bureaucracy remains in place in Washington DC, America will NEVER be great again.

We must call upon him to act, and to declassify all documents that show us how the deep state violates our freedoms. Call the President at 202-456-1111 and urge him to declassify these crucial documents!

Thank you for caring about the future of your nation.

Sincerely,
George Brikho

Image result for fake newsThere is so much corruption these days within our politics that it could be accurately described as Biblical. Whether it is the end of days or not, I fight for the future of my family, my community and this land that I love. I try to inspire others to fight as well because it’s the only way we can possibly escape this mess.

We have rooted out corruption before and we will do it again, despite the impediments made by corrupt public officials at every level. I like to keep the focus on local and state corruption because it is what directly affects our lives the most, and it is where we can make the biggest difference. Serving as a whistle-blower against local and state corruption is not always easy, as I recently discovered yet again in Bloomfield.

Appearing on ‘Tough Talk with Paul Taros,’ I spoke about what happened in Inkster to me and other dispensary owners. We were strong-armed by a gangster government. They wanted to extort us to do business in their town. These corrupt officials committed many crimes, documented in many audio recordings, and will pay the price in the court of law when this all said and done. This is happening in many other communities throughout Michigan as legalization becomes a reality. Although the people have spoken, government thugs never make the process easy.

Paul Taros, a friend of mine, is a liberty-minded community activist who recently ran for State House. He has diligently called out local corrupt officials in Bloomfield on his public access show for years. Public access is meant to be a constitutional right for citizens to use in order to spread the truth. It is supposed to be a means for us to communicate with each other and discuss important issues outside of the bounds of the corporate-dominated media. Although it is a small and often overlooked venue, it is nonetheless an important one.

The local tyrants of Bloomfield Township yanked Taros’ show off the air entirely, using my whistle-blowing appearance as the excuse to do so. General Manager Greg Kowalski made the decision to stomp on the constitutional rights of Taros in order to better control information throughout the city. Township Supervisor Leo Savoie, who is as corrupt as they come, is no doubt very happy about the muzzling of Taros. Corrupt Inkster Mayor Byron Nolen and corrupt Bloomfield Township Supervisor Leo Savoie may not be acquainted personally, but they certainly know how to protect each others’ scams.

This shows that every battle being waged at the federal level is also being waged at the state and local levels. The fake news maligns the President and stands in the way of making America great again, but that is just one example of many. Thousands of people are suffering because of these professional liars. When they aren’t using the airwaves to defame you personally, they are hampering your ability to get an opposing viewpoint out. Kowalski and Savoie run Bloomfield Community television in the same way the globalists run CNN: with an iron fist against the We the People!

There is a call for President Donald J. Trump to drain the swamp in Washington DC, but that is not nearly enough. There is a swamp not just in Lansing, but also in every community across the state and the country. Until each swamp is drained, America will never be free or great. This is where you need to get involved. It may seem like a daunting task, but we have the numbers on our side. Despite their institutional advantages, the bad guys are extremely unpopular, and we can outwork them to achieve success. We all must get off the couch and crush our local tyrants before more our our rights are violated.
