Groene at the Legislature: Thankful for vigilance in pursuit of individual liberty

Sen. Mike Groene - Nov. 24, 2021

Thanksgiving, celebrated in America without commercialization like our other holidays, is a statement of the American character. America’s stature as a place of personal freedom and liberty has endured world wars, regional conflicts and terrorist attacks. Presently, from within, our individual freedom is being assaulted by fear mongers and socialist ideologies that conspire to redefine […]

Groene: Threat to liberty within

Sen. Mike Groene - Nov. 22, 2021

On Veterans Day, we honored those individuals who served to protect our liberty and defend freedom in the world. Most of humanity today does not share the freedoms we have had in America. Repressive socialist, communist, or fascist governments still hold a heavy hand over mankind’s quest for liberty. I have always believed the heroism […]

Groene: Legislature bends to Biden mandate

Sen. Mike Groene - Nov. 5, 2021

There will be no special Legislative session to address the Biden Administration’s tyrannical COVID-19 mandates. The final tally of senators was 28, five short of the necessary 33. Sens. Williams and Pahls added their name to the original 26. Of the 21 senators who refused to support your individual health care choice on COVID vaccines, […]

Groene at the Legislature: Ugly side of politics

Sen. Mike Groene - Oct. 29, 2021

Reading of the recent political attack on Rep. Jeff Fortenberry by President Biden’s Federal Bureau of Investigation reminded me of a recent political witch hunt that I endured. A longtime political activist from Lancaster County, by the name of Kate High, filed a complaint against me with the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission (NADC), the […]

Vaccination mandate shows freedom is on the brink

Sen. Mike Groene - Oct. 25, 2021

What have we become? Is America, let alone Nebraska, a people who seek safety over liberty, socialism over personal responsibility rooted in freedom? As Benjamin Franklin, the elder of the founding fathers, warned “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Of course, I am […]

Groene at the Legislature: Columbus Day reminds us of what is possible

Sen. Mike Groene - Oct. 15, 2021

Monday, Oct. 11 was Columbus Day, a federal holiday that many, including myself, observe in honor of the achievements of Christopher Columbus. His story is the genesis of the American dream. He was born into a modest family of weavers who lived above their shop in the Italian city-state of Genoa. Columbus’s accomplishments belong among […]

Groene at the Legislature: Partisan redistricting

Sen. Mike Groene - Sep. 30, 2021

Redistricting is finished. Our Legislative District 42 needed a minimum of 3,353 added citizens to match the numbers needed. To do so, we picked up the sparsely populated counties to the north — Hooker, Thomas, McPherson and Logan – adding 2,495.  In addition, the remaining number of citizens were garnered by including eastern and northwestern parts […]
