Nicole Bromley wants to set the record straight on downtown parking controversy

Please don't come into the Gold & Silver Exchange using foul language in front of our customers. If any more “friends” of Lindsey Swidorski say we are causing the problems, please note we never had an issue with anyone for over 10 years...

Manistee's Gay Welcome Signs

I’m writing about a subject I have lost much sleep over. Many a time when I tried to go to bed, I was plagued by the knowledge that there are forces in Manistee trying to fundamentally change the character and demographics of our town...

February 2023:


Last year I got discouraged by the lack of progress promoting this site. Despite standing around town with my sign on many occasions, this publication barely has any readers, and only a handful of people have ever written in on the forums. I was in last year’s Fourth of July Parade with the Manistee Speaks sign, and not one person wrote in afterwards...

Replacement Facts

There’s been much talk about the replacement of White people in America. Many claim it’s a myth, and a conspiracy theory. I would like to provide our readers with the facts.

Nethanial Degrave's letter from prison

Dear Fellow Americans –

I never thought I’d write a letter like this, but we’re living in very different times. This is my cry for help.

My name is Nathan DeGrave, and as a non violent participant at the Jan 6th rally, I’ve spent the last 9 months detained as a political prisoner in pod C2B at the DC DOC…otherwise known as DC’s Gitmo...

Ukraine Conflict

During the 20th century, the Ukrainian people suffered through a civil war, the Holodomor, and World War Two. Today they are enduring another terrible tragedy, one I and millions of others had hoped to never again see on European soil. How did this happen? No doubt you’ve heard various things from the American Empire’s propaganda machine about evil Russian war criminals, and Putin going mad. There’s so much propaganda coming out of the Potomac Regime that I’m not even going to try and document it here. Instead, I intend to present you with an alternative viewpoint.

I’m sure you’ve heard the establishment’s account of the “capital insurrection”, and attack on “Our Democracy”. But have you heard the other side of the story?

Crypto Scheme?

On Monday, December 6th, I began a serious study of cryptocurrencies, hoping I would be able to break into the market somehow and generate some passive income. This study lasted about a week, and the findings are rather disheartening...

If this is a true pandemic, then it’s been very poorly handled, not just by the American Empires’ establishment, but the World Health Organization as well. On December 31st, 2019, Taiwan began trying to sound the alarm. Chinese Communist Party officials denied that there was anything wrong for weeks, actively trying to cover up that anything had happened...

Waukesha Terror:

On Sunday, November 21st, 2021, the city of Waukesha, WI was having a Christmas parade. The streets and sidewalks were filled with people celebrating with their families. The happy occasion was swiftly turned into a nightmare, when a red SUV smashed through a police barricade, sped through the street, and ran over dozens of people- killing at least 5 adults, injuring more than 40 others, including 18 children...

Thoughts wanted on the Rittenhouse Trial:

On Friday, November 19th, in the year 2021, a jury in Kenosha Wisconsin found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on all 5 charges, to both the delight, and horror of millions of Americans. Personally I’m surprised by this outcome. I had thought at least one charge would stick, if only in an attempt to placate the mob. What happens next is anybody’s guess. My own is there will be protests, and possible riots over the verdict...

The Case for Copyright Reform:

You probably heard about Dr. Seuss Enterprises stopping the licensing and publication of numerous Dr. Seuss books. I wrote Random House Publishing about this, asking for permission to archive the works for the public, and received no response. Effectively, Dr. Seuss Enterprises has used copyright laws to destroy the creative works of the original author...

If there is one thing that defines our current zeitgeist, it’s a fervent support for Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity - at least by the elites and public institutions. So, what are these people actually talking about? Let’s try to unpack it...

Disproportionate Power:

Do you remember the Occupy Wall street movement? It seems like a lifetime ago. For awhile, there was a growing number of people upset about where the country has been headed. They pointed out that the wealth gap between the rich and the poor has been widening over several generations...

A Response to MARJDI:


I would like to know, how was my letter threatening to anyone? I've been trying to work that out for months.
It is true that the native tribes lost much of their lands to Europeans. But what did Indians do to each-other? I think a good place to start your education would be the Crow Creek Massacre...

Frustrations with the News Advocate:

Two months ago I submitted my first letter to the editor of the Manistee News Advocate. It was published about 5 days later, on August 19th. The very next day a rebuttal authored by MARJDI was published as a letter to the editor. In this letter I was defamed, and among other things accused of being threatening. To whom I do not know to this day. I tried to find out by writing a reply, which couldn't be submitted for 30 day's since my last submission due to the advocate's policy...

Life Chain Rally:

It was raining hard. While walking to the event location, I was thinking nobody would show up in this deluge. To my surprise there were some people at the corner of river street and US 31. I walked up and spoke with an elderly gentleman, whom I later found out was one of the organizers for the event...

Editor calls for letters:

Fellow citizens,
It is with great joy that I am putting out this call for letters to the editor of Manistee Speaks. As many of you are no doubt aware, it's nearly impossible to put forward a dissenting view on social media without being censored. Even the Manistee News Advocate reserves the right to refuse to publish letters to the editor for any reason...
