Donald Trump and the Republicans lead Hillary Clinton and the Democrats in early voting returns, Chad Livengood of the Detroit News reports.

190,000 Republicans have turned in ballots vs. only 170,000 Dems. Nearly 160,000 independent/unaffiliated voters have also cast ballots, a group Trump consistently leads with in nearly every poll.

Those numbers translate to:

Trump/R: 36.5%
Hillary/D: 32.6 %
Independent/Unaffiliated/Non-Primary voters: 30.9%

Stay tuned! :)

Breaking: Illegal Immigrant Arrested In Grand Rapids, Slaughters A West Michigan Mom 5 Days Later (After Being Deported TWICE!)

Karla

Some mock Donald Trump for his focus on border security and building a wall, but make no mistake, Karla Guadalupe-Magaña, a young West Michigan mom, isn't laughing. She's dead, murdered by an illegal immigrant who had just been arrested and released by the Kent County Sheriff's Office only five days previously. 
The murder transpired despite the fact the assailant was deported multiple times in the last decade... 
According to a blockbuster report from WOOD TV 8:
"A man who allegedly admitted to strangling his girlfriend at a Wyoming apartment has been deported twice and was also arrested and released from jail only days before the homicide.
Raul Perez, 43, is charged with open murder and being a third-time habitual offender. He’s accused of killing 31-year-old Karla Guadalupe-Magaña at Woodcreek Apartments on 44th Street east of Burlingame Avenue SW...
Police say Guadalupe-Magaña was Perez’s girlfriend, but the victim’s brother tells 24 Hour News 8 they were friends and she wasn’t living with Perez.
GoFundMe page shows Guadalupe-Magaña was a mother of five children. Family is asking for help with funeral expenses.
Just five days before the killing, 24 Hour News 8 learned, Wyoming police arrested Perez on a misdemeanor operating while intoxicated charge. Kent County Undersheriff Michelle Young said he used a different name to identify himself after the arrest: Jerry Lopes Sosa.

A fingerprint scan showed his real name, though, which revealed his criminal record. Young told 24 Hour News 8 that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would have been notified of his arrest and it would be up to that agency to direct the jail to keep Perez in custody.
“On the [Saturday, Oct.] 22, ICE would’ve been notified this person was in custody and ICE from there has to do a manual search to identify that this person is associated with a previous contact. That would’ve taken manual intervention and that doesn’t happen over a weekend,” Young explained during a phone interview.
She went on to explain the Kent County Sheriff’s Department had no reason to keep Perez in custody, so he was released on Oct. 22 — a day after his arrest.
It has been more than a decade since Perez first had contact with ICE, during which time he was twice deported to Mexico, the agency told 24 Hour News 8."
Excellent job from WOOD TV 8!

Imam From Dearborn Joins Trump Michigan Middle East Coalition, BLASTS Hillary

Sheikh Mohammad Al Hajj Hassan, the Imam from Dearborn who supports Donald Trump, has joined the campaign as a member of the Michigan Middle East Leadership team.

The Middle East Leadership team is featured below.

In a statement, Hassan touted his Muslim faith, blasting Hillary Clinton for her ISIS ties while praising Trump. Hassan also urged people of all faiths to vote for "the Donald."

He also referenced his brother, who was kidnapped by ISIS... Hassan has previously blamed Hillary for co-founding the Islamic State...

"It is an honor to work with leaders from Michigan’s Middle Eastern community in support of Donald Trump for President," Hassan said.  "We will be doing everything we can to get out the vote for Mr. Trump on November 8th because we know he is the only candidate who will bring the change needed to unleash our economy and make the world a safer and more peaceful place. 

My friends and family overseas have been personally victimized as a direct result of the creation and spread of ISIS under Hillary Clinton’s watch.  Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s poor judgment at home and in the Middle East has already cost us too much, and we simply cannot afford a third Obama term.  As a Muslim, I proudly support Donald Trump for President and urge people of all faiths and backgrounds to do the same.”

Breaking: Allegations Lon Johnson Fathered Stephanie Cutter's Baby Swirl In MI-1

Lon Johnson and Jennifer Smoot


By-Brandon Hall
(Email West MIPolitics@Gmail.com)

Allegations Lon Johnson fathered Stephanie Cutter's baby are hounding the 1st District Congressional candidate with the election against Republican Jack Bergman just two weeks away.

The mystery has been ongoing for over 3 years now...

According to 2013 reports from the Daily Mail:

"CNN anchor Stephanie Cutter 'excited' to be pregnant with her first child at 44 - but there's no word on who the father is

Top political strategist turned CNN anchor, Stephanie Cutter is pregnant with her first child at the age of 44.

The Washington Post notes that there is no early word on who the father is and the blonde is, who is not married, is thought to be single.

A source told the publication that Ms Cutter, due in March, is 'very excited' about the prospect of motherhood and otherwise, 'not dishing about the details of the pregnancy at all."

Cutter, a close member of Obama's inner circle, is no stranger to the spotlight, serving as Michelle Obama's Chief Of Staff in 2008, and Deputy Campaign Manager in 2012. She then hosted "Crossfire" on CNN.

Before that, according to WikiPedia, Cutter:

"worked for President Bill Clinton as Deputy Communications Director at the White House during his administration "to help restore Mr. Clinton’s image in the aftermath of (his) impeachment and Monica Lewinsky."

Beginning in 2001, she served as Communications Director for Senator Ted Kennedy. In November 2003, she was named communications director for the John Kerry campaign, at Kennedy's recommendation. During that campaign, she was criticized for having a surly and difficult personality and was often scapegoated for Kerry's loss. Kerry considered the criticism of her unfair and praised her work."

Johnson, the former Chairman of the Michigan Democratic Party, was recently in the news for a shady house he claims to live in, likely for tax purposes.

Johnson worked with Cutter on various projects via his wife during the Obama campaigns. Johnson is married to one of Cutter's best friends, Jennifer Smoot, who was also part of the Obama team-both Cutter and Smoot were Deputy Campaign Managers in 2012. Cutter and Smoot even attended college together.

Smoot helped raise millions for the President in 2008, then worked at the White House, marrying Johnson in 2011. 

(Interestingly enough, Smoot also used to work for John Edwards in her home state of North Carolina. Edwards was famous for his own love triangle/baby scandal)

Smoot then served as Obama Deputy Campaign Manager in 2012. After Obama's re-election, he was instrumental in Johnson's ouster of Mark Brewer as MDP Chair in 2013...

Cutter and Johnson have remained close, with Cutter co-hosting a $500 a plate fundraiser for Johnson earlier this year in Washington D.C.


Multiple social media posts from 2013, the year Cutter became pregnant, show Cutter and Johnson working together.
























>>>Editor's Note: This story began when I accidentally referred to Cutter as Johnson's wife, and the following conversation ensued:



After receiving corroborating information that can not be released because it will reveal the source, and after further consultation with trusted sources about the information presented, I believe this to be an extremely credible allegation.

Just as I did with the Courser/Gamrat revelations first reported by WMP in July 2015, I believe these allegations are likely true.

>>>Stephanie Cutter, if you happen to be reading:

I am willing to pay for a DNA test of your child if you dispute this report and want to put an end to all of the speculation!

Breaking: New MRG Poll Shows Donald Trump Poised To Win Michigan


By-Brandon Hall
(Email West MIPolitics@Gmail.com)

Despite the absurd narrative from the corporate media promulgating otherwise, a new poll from Marketing Research Group shows Donald Trump in prime position to win Michigan.

According to Lauren Gibbons of MLive:

"The Reuters/IPSOS States of the Nation analysis predicts Clinton obtaining 45 percent of the vote, and Trump obtaining 41 percent.

The latest poll of likely Michigan voters, released Friday by Marketing Resource Group, showed Clinton ahead by five points from a poll of 600 likely voters. The margin of error of that poll is four percent.

"Either candidate can win Michigan by winning votes back from the third party candidates and capturing a majority of the 15 percent of the Independent voters who are still undecided," Marketing Resource Group President Tom Shields said in a statement. "This is coming down to a traditional election where the Independent voters will decide who wins Michigan."

Developing: Project Veritas Video Shows Michigan Being Targeted For Phony Hispanic Votes

James O'Keefe

By-Brandon Hall
(Email West MIPolitics@Gmail.com)

Michigan is featured as a target of DNC linked scam designed to ship voters between Illinois and Michigan in the latest "Project Veritas" video.

The video, which continues to cause controversy despite the media's refusal to report on the revelations, is just the beginning of a series from controversial conservative filmmaker James O'Keefe.

Michigan is referenced specifically, citing the need to get around the "voter registration law for Hispanics."

According to the Chicago Tribune:

"Robert Creamer, husband of Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., and Scott Foval -- two little-known but influential Democratic political operatives -- have left their jobs after video investigations by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas Action found them entertaining dark notions about how to win elections.

Foval was laid off on Monday by Americans United for Change, where he had been national field director. Creamer announced Tuesday night that he was "stepping back" from the work he was doing for the unified Democratic campaign for Hillary Clinton.

In the "voter fraud" video, Foval looks -- somehow -- even worse, describing how voters could be sent to midwestern states to cast fraudulent ballots. But when PVAction edits this into a narrative, something gets lost. Foval says that "Bob Creamer comes up with a lot of these ideas," but what the "ideas" are is lost to a quick edit.

After a quick introduction of Creamer that covers his 2005 conviction for tax evasion, Creamer is seen talking to a journalist posing as a possible donor, rambling a bit as he describes how to get voter IDs to people who need them.

"What do you really need, okay?" says the journalist. "What makes you a citizen? And if you look at that checklist, it's an ID card of any kind that shows you who you are and a pay stub that shows you're getting paid at a local address some place."

"To get registered, you mean?" asks Creamer.

"Yeah," says the journalist. "Let's say I had business inside of, say, Illinois or Michigan, and I hired people, and I had addresses for them, I could write them checks, I could use them as day laborers or whatever and use them and find my way around the voter registration law for Hispanics."

Creamer quickly begins jotting down names of voter registration groups: "There are a couple of different organizations, that's their big trick."
