Fast Facts You Need To Know
The Senator has publicly stated that he believes that unregulated Wireless Radiation represents the #1 environmental issue of our day. He hosted a December 2018 forum in Lansing featuring experts on the topic discussing both the benefits and risks of wireless technology such as smart meters, cell phones and 5G networks. During his tenure, he introduced legislation to empower consumers with increased choice as to the source of their electricity.
He has been attacked by his political opponents for his remarks at a public forum featuring former member of the Muslim Brotherhood Kamal Saleem and former counter-terrorism expert with the Department of Homeland Security Phil Haney. During the forum, he reviewed a document entered as evidence in the federal trial U.S. vs Holy Land Foundation called the “Explanatory Memorandum”. This document was only discovered after the FBI executed a search warrant on the home of Ismail Elbarasse whose wife was caught suspiciously videotaping the support structures of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. When the FBI searched their Virginia home, they discovered a secret room in their basement containing 80 banker boxes of information on the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood in America. The Explanatory Memorandum contains the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan for what they refer to as “civilization jihad” in America. It cites organizations such as the Muslim Students Association as means to that end. Colbeck made a point of highlighting that Abdul El-Sayed, one of his Democratic Party opponents, was Vice President of the Muslim Students Association at the University of Michigan. The Muslim Brotherhood has been designated as a terrorist organization by majority Muslim and Arabic countries such as Egypt, UAE, and Saudi Arabia. When asked about the dangers of Sharia Law at a May 10, 2018 gubernatorial candidate forum hosted by the Michigan Press Association, Abdul El-Sayed responded to Colbeck’s remarks by saying “You may not hate Muslims, but Muslims definitely hate you.”
During a public forum where he discussed the need for the State of Michigan to learn how to live within its means and forego the “politics-as-usual” tax increase approach to solving problems, the Senator referred to his 72k salary as ‘fixed income’ since it remained constant throughout his 8 years of public service. Despite this statement being true, detractors took issue with him calling a $72,000 per year salary a ‘fixed income’ believing he was insensitive to people of lower income levels. “I often use the term ‘fixed’ to describe variables that are constant,” Colbeck said in a statement. “For example, I regularly refer to ‘fixed’ and ‘variable’ costs in financial discussions. Plus, I like to fix things and we have many problems in state government that can benefit from this attitude.”
In August 2018, Colbeck lost the Republican primary to Attorney General Bill Schuette, hampered by poor name recognition and internal party politics. . He received 13% of the Republican primary vote in a 4-way primary race despite only 21% name recognition near election day.
On May 31, 2017 Colbeck filed to run for Michigan Governor to replace current Republican Governor Rick Snyder, whose second and final term expired in January 2019. Colbeck was widely recognized as the most conservative candidate for governor in the 2018 gubernatorial race.
In 2015, during the middle of an intense debate over how to fix Michigan’s roads, Senator Colbeck challenged his colleagues to a debate over whether or not it was necessary to increase taxes to fix the roads. Senator Curtis Hertel accepted the challenge. The ensuing debate was moderated by Kyle Melinn of MIRS News Service.
In 2011-2012, Colbeck led the effort to make Michigan the 24th Right-to-Work state in the United States. Recognized as the “most vocal opponent of anything to do with Obamacare”, he led the effort to oppose state-based health exchanges in Michigan and Medicaid Expansion. He was successful regarding the state-based exchange effort but, despite a procedural move that temporarily blocked passage, he was ultimately unsuccessful in stopping Medicaid Expansion which is now referred to as the Healthy Michigan program. He was also responsible for the passage of legislation to expand school choice and he has been a vocal opponent of the Common Core Standards Initiative.
In 2011, Senator Colbeck co-founded the MI Freedom Center (aka Michigan Armed Forces Hospitality Center) to serve military personnel, veterans and their families. As the chair of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs budget, he implemented performance-based budgets that helped improve Michigan veteran services from among the worst in the nation to #2 in the nation.
Senator Colbeck ran for office during the Tea Party wave of the 2010 elections. As a member of the Rattle With Us Tea Party in Plymouth, MI, he leveraged his retirement account to fund his campaign to become the first State Senator elected directly into the Michigan Senate without ever having served in public office in three decades. During his first term in the Michigan Senate, he served on the Senate Leadership Team as the Assistant Caucus Chair. He also served as the Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee for the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and State Police budgets. During his second term, his outspoken opposition to Obamacare, tax increases, and Common Core Standards motivated the Republican Senate Majority Leader, Arlan Meekhof, to make him the only returning Republican Senator to be denied any chairmanships. He later had him removed from all committees after Colbeck attended a Right to Life Dinner in the Senate Majority Leader’s district.
