You Would Think The First 16 Times Would Be Enough

If you don't first succeed, then try, try, try,try,try, try,try....again
From the OrlandoSentinel:  An alleged drunken driver had some trouble parking his SUV early this morning.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers say 25-year-old Tony Futch hit 17 cars while trying to park his blue Chevrolet Blazer in an apartment complex in Osceola County.
Around 4 a.m., Futch rammed through the gate of the Gate Condominium complex at 1550 Calder Blvd., off of Osceola Polk Line Road near Interstate 4 in Davenport.According to the arrest report, Futch drove in circles and when he came near the exit of the residence’s parking lot, he crashed against multiple vehicles to his right. He drove around the roundabout, went straight and hit another car to his right.
He made three other turns and hit a number of parked cars before approaching a parking spot, where he hit two more cars.
Osceola deputies pepper-sprayed Futch because he became “combative” as he was being detained. The report says he told authorities “I’ll tell you everything I did, I will tell you anything you want.”
Futch — whose breath smelled of alcohol — refused to provide a breath sample. He was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving by the FHP and faces an additional charge from Osceola County for resisting arrest. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/breaking-news/os-driver-hits-cars-parking-20170818-story.html
Just wondering why he didn't get charged with hit and run.

The War On Cops Continues

From Fox News: Three people were in custody Friday night, including a “strong suspect,” after one police officer was fatally shot and another suffered grave injuries in Kissimmee, Fla., south of Orlando...


The two officers were in the area of Palmway and Cypress, checking out a report of a suspicious person at approximately 9:27 p.m. Soon afterward, a 9-1-1 call came in, saying the officers had been shot, O’Dell said.
The area is known for high drug activity, the chief said.
O’Dell said the officers did not return fire, and it appears they were “surprised.” ....
Also on Friday night, two police officers were shot in Jacksonville, Fla., and two state troopers were shot in Pennsylvania.
It's sad to say, but in some communities, policeofficer's lives really don't matte.

This Is More Tragic Than Charolettesville

From the Chicago Tribune:   The sermon was just about to begin Sunday morning as the 34-year-old usher walked up the steps of South Austin’s Friendship Baptist Church accompanied by his three young children.
According to church members and the pastor, the sanctuary was where the man had sought to turn over a new leaf. It was where his children, all under the age of 10, had been baptized. And Sunday, it was where his life was cut short.
Around 11:15 a.m., two gunmen wearing bandanas ran toward the broad wooden doors of the church and opened fire in the direction of the usher and a 46-year-old man who was visiting the church, police and witnesses said. The men attempted to take cover behind a nearby retaining wall as the usher cried for his children to take cover inside the church.
The children made it to safety, said the Rev. Reginald Bachus. The usher was taken to Stroger Hospital and the 46-year-old was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital. Both were pronounced dead, police said. Their names have not yet been released.
“They were on their way up the steps to the church, and two gentlemen ran up from Jackson (Boulevard) and basically unloaded on them,” Bachus said....
But when the usher’s children burst through the doors, gunfire could be heard only feet away, prompting members, including many seniors and children, to drop to the floor as one of the usher’s children repeatedly cried, “I want my dad!”   http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-two-men-slain-on-church-steps-when-gunmen-basically-unloaded-on-them-pastor-20170813-story.html
2 men going to church with their children are shot down as they entered a house of worship and there is no outrage.
Racist thugs from both the right and left battle in the streets and woman protester hanging with tbe leftist thugs dies and that draws national outrage.
Our country is so screwed up.

More Feel Good Taxpayer Money Down The Crapper

From the Pahrump Valley Times:  The Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project near Tonopah had no energy sales during the second quarter of this year, following the first quarter’s similar path, a recently released federal report indicates.
Tonopah Solar Energy, a subsidiary company through which the plant is operated, didn’t have any sales from November 2016 through June 2017, according to the first and second quarter reports produced by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. That is the U.S. Department of Energy’s arm that oversees the wholesale of the power and transmission of power plants across the nation.
Officials with NV Energy, the sole customer of Crescent Dunes, confirmed that NV Energy began receiving energy from Crescent Dunes on July 12 for the first time since the facility was shut down for repairs and maintenance in late October 2016....
The Crescent Dunes project received a $737 million federal loan guarantee from the U.S. Department of Energy in 2011, a step that was seen as critical for its operation.  http://m.pvtimes.com/news/records-shed-light-crescent-dunes-solar-plant-nye-county#sthash.8GGSCmO8.dpbs
This solar farm is literally out in the middle of nowhere.  The population within 100 miles of Tonopath is less than 10,000 people and that cannot support a huge solar farm.
Thank you Obama for a boondoggle that is a waste of money.

Liberals To Blame For Charolettesville Violence

Once again, liberals resort to violence and this time one of their own paid the price, along with 2 Virginia state troopers who died when their helicopter crashed and burned.
From the Washington Post:
Chaos and violence turned to tragedy Saturday as hundreds of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members — planning to stage what they described as their largest rally in decades to “take America back” — clashed with counterprotesters in the streets and a car plowed into crowds, leaving one person dead and 19 others injured.
Hours later, two state police officers died when their helicopter crashed at the outskirts of town. Officials identified them as Berke M.M. Bates of Quinton, Va., who was the pilot, and H. Jay Cullen of Midlothian, Va., who was a passenger. State police said their Bell 407 helicopter was assisting with the unrest in Charlottesville. Bates died one day before his 41st birthday; Cullen was 48.....
They were met by counterprotesters at the base of a statue of Thomas Jefferson, who founded the university. One counterprotester apparently deployed a chemical spray, which sent about a dozen rallygoers seeking medical assistance.On Saturday morning, people in combat gear — some wearing bicycle and motorcycle helmets and carrying clubs, sticks and makeshift shields — fought one another on downtown streets, with little apparent police interference. Both sides sprayed chemical irritants and hurled plastic bottles through the air.
A large contingent of Charlottesville police officers and Virginia State Police troopers in riot gear were stationed on side streets and at nearby barricades but did nothing to break up the melee until about 11:40 a.m. Using megaphones, police then declared an unlawful assembly and gave a five-minute warning to leave Emancipation Park. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/fights-in-advance-of-saturday-protest-in-charlottesville/2017/08/12/155fb636-7f13-11e7-83c7-5bd5460f0d7e_story.html?utm_term=.0b3f4e6d9682
What the Post refused to write is that some left wing thug threw a rock at the car just before the thug driving it ran over people.  From pictures, it looked like the rock went through the windshield opening up a self defense claim.
The racist thugs had a permit to march and the thug liberals including the dead lady didn't want them to rally.  So, to counteract the nazi thugs, the left wing thugs resorted to violence, which they have been known to frequently to.  Included in the left wing thug groups was the nazi equivalent was the terrorist group of black lives dont matter.
And the cops from the liberal city of Charolettesville let the violence get out of hand, which cops do in liberal cities.  When libral terrorists rally, like the terrorist group black lives don't matter, the cops will do everything to protect them, to the point of dying like in Dallas.  But when right wing thugs want to protest in liberal cities, the cops do very little to protect them.
What if the liberal thugs didn't show up, along with media who were also fanning the flames?  Nothing would have been done, the nazi thugs wouldn’t have had an audience and no one would have cared.  The nazi thugs would have gone back to their hole in the ground not to be heard from again.
You think Martin Luther King would have resorted in violence like the leftist thugs engaged in?  I doubt it.  Even the despicable Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson wouldn't.
I have no sympathy for the lady who died.  she should not have gone or surrounded herself with left wing thugs.  That's a Darwin award nominee move.
I do feel sorry for the 2 troopers and their family and friends who died doing their jobs dealing with thugs from both sides.
When you have racists and thugs on both sides, who in their right mind thing nothing bad will happen?

I Wonder If Guam Is Bombed, Would It Tip Over?

A blast from the past.
From CBS News: Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) is raising some eyebrows with a comment he made about the U.S. territory of Guam during a House Armed Services Committee hearing last Thursday.
In a discussion regarding a planned military buildup on the Pacific island, Johnson expressed some concerns about the plans to Adm. Robert Willard, head of the U.S. Pacific fleet.
"My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize," Johnson said. Willard paused and replied, "We don't anticipate that."
More evidence that liberals just are not that smart.

North Korea: Who Would You Rather Have As President?

Elections have consequences.
Who would you have as president dealing with North Korea...President Trump or Hillary Clinton?
Without a doubt, President Trump is dealing with the North Koreans where other presidents have failed to deal with and Trump is now dealing with their failures.
Trump is doing the right thing by telling the fat boy leader what will happen if fat boy gets stupid and fires a missle at Guam, the U.S. or our allies.  But there is still talks with North Korea.
And Hillary?  She would surrender and try to bribe fat boy with taxpayer give aways.  Just like her husband, ex-president Obama and both president Bush's.
Thank goodness Trump is President.

Good News For Wisconsin

From jsonline, Milwaukee: The ceremonies are over and the land rush is in full stride as southeastern Wisconsin braces for the entry of Foxconn Technology Group.
Thursday at the Milwaukee Art Museum was all about pomp and circumstance as Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed a memorandum of agreement with Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou.
"This is something that will say to the world, 'We have arrived,' " Walker told civic leaders gathered in the museum's Windhover Hall overlooking Lake Michigan.
Walker said Foxconn and Gou chose Wisconsin "because we're ready. We got our act together."
Gou told the audience: "This is our home, my home, Wisconsin."
Gou saluted Wisconsin leaders for trying hard to make the deal and singled out Walker for his tireless work in landing the firm.
"I have never seen this kind of governor or leader, yet in this world," he said.
Final details have to be ironed out in this colossal deal, with Foxconn planning to invest $10 billion in a display panel plant in southeastern Wisconsin.
Foxconn could employ up to 13,000 workers, and draw up to $3 billion in subsidiesfrom state taxpayers over 15 years. It would initially employ 3,000 workers making an average of $53,900 a year plus benefits.
But all that investment needs land.
If Foxconn moves forward it would assemble a huge site by paying likely tens of thousands of dollars an acre for farm land that typically sells for much less.
But such price inflation isn't unusual when a big development is brewing.
Two people who own land in one of the potential Foxconn development sites have told the Journal Sentinel that they are being offered $50,000 an acre for their properties, which are mainly farm land.
http://www.jsonline.com/story/money/real-estate/commercial/2017/07/27/foxconn-offering-50-000-acre-mount-pleasant-factory-site/516421001/
Some unsolicited advice on where to build the plant: Don't build in Milwaukee or Dane County (where Madison is located) in Wisconsin.
The liberals in those counties will eat Foxconn alive with all their demands such as who to employ and how much to pay the employees, theft through taxes and regulations, regulations aimed only at this company and a little kickback money to line the liberal's pockets.
Congratulations to Gov. Scott Walker and his team and also to President Trump who probably had a hand in helping the company to build in Wisconsin.

9/11 Keeps On Killing

From the NY Daily News: Another firefighter has lost his life to a 9/11-related cancer.
Retired Firefighter Michael Duffy, a 20-year veteran of the department who spent time at Ground Zero after the terror attacks, died on Aug. 8, officials said Thursday.
Duffy joined the FDNY in 1982 and spent his entire career at Engine 310 and Ladder 174 on Snyder Ave. in East Flatbush, known as “Snyder Island.”...
On 9/11, 343 firefighters and 23 NYPD cops were killed when terrorists flew two jumbo jets into the World Trade Center.
As of July 15, 157 FDNY members — including firefighters, EMS personnel, civilian employees and fire marshals — have died of 9/11-related illnesses, department officials said.
By the end of 2016, 132 additional NYPD cops had died of illnesses that can be linked to their time at Ground Zero, officials said.  http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/brooklyn/fdny-firefighter-michael-duffy-dies-9-11-linked-cancer-63-article-1.3401663
It's been almost 16 years since the muslim terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001 and the tragic attack is still killing people who worked at the WTC.
RIP to firefighter Duffy and prayers for his family, friends and the FDNY family.

A Real Hero

Alaska fishermen are tough.
From the Washington Post: Dramatic video from the U.S. Coast Guard captured the moment Monday when the captain of a capsized Alaskan fishing boat risked his life to rescue one of his crewmen from choppy, 47-degree waters near Kodiak Island. Captain Christian Trosvig and his crew of three had spent the afternoon trawling for salmon in the Kupreanof Strait off the coast of Alaska’s Raspberry Island when suddenly their vessel, the Grayling, started to take on water.
As the stern sank below the surface, a distress call went out to the other fishing boats in the area, according to KTUU. The Calista Marie arrived, and the men on board agreed to tow the troubled Grayling back to safety.
It should have been a quick trip, the shore only about a quarter-mile away. But soon after they got going, the Grayling rolled over without warning, throwing Trosvig and the three other fishermen into the frigid, turbulent sea, the Alaska Dispatch News reported.
Fighting 6-foot waves, Trosvig and one crewman managed to pull themselves onto a lifeboat from their sinking vessel, according to Dale Pruitt, the Calista Marie’s captain, who spoke to the Dispatch News. Another crewman swam to the Calista Marie and climbed aboard, he said.
But the fourth member of the Grayling was nowhere to be found....
Some 20 minutes passed with no sign of the fisherman.
Then, finally, his limp body drifted to the surface — 50 yards away, right next to the overturned Grayling.
Trosvig dove in. Around the same time, the Coast Guard’s MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter arrived, piloted by Lt. Kevin Riley, who described the scene to Alaska Public Media.
“We had just made one pass, maybe two, searching overhead,” Riley said. “We saw visually and in our sensor the crew member that was missing, basically floating.”
Riley lowered the helicopter and watched the captain jump into the water.
“It looked like he was swimming very fast,” he said of Trosvig. “I’m sure the water was cold. It was probably in the upper 40s out there. But he was swimming extremely fast considering he was in a life jacket.”
Conditions were treacherous, Riley added in comments to KTUU, saying the high waves, the overturned boat and the nets and rigging floating around the men made the rescue especially risky.
Shaky footage from the helicopter shows Trosvig with an orange life jacket strapped to his shoulders paddling up to the fisherman and grabbing hold of him by his right arm. The fisherman appears unresponsive, bobbing up and down as waves roll over the two men and water splashes up from the sides of a vessel near them. At one point, Trosvig appears to lose his grip and the fisherman slips below the surface, disappearing from him.
Moments later, a small boat appears in the frame. A man on board throws them a rope and an orange float and pulls them to the vehicle’s aft. The video ends as the men begin lifting the fisherman out of the water.
Once on board, Trosvig immediately started performing CPR, Pruitt told the Dispatch News. After about five minutes, Pruitt said, the fisherman was revived.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/07/26/to-god-be-the-glory-heroic-captain-of-alaska-fishing-boat-braves-frigid-seas-to-save-nearly-lifeless-crewman/?tid=a_inl-amp&utm_term=.cf589e87e5e9.
The ships captain is a real hero and a very tough man.

More Media Bias

The media bias towards President Trump is on display everyday but here is a little tidbit that shows the media bias.
The U6 unemployment rate is basically the number of people out of work or work part time because they cannot find a full time job.
During ex-president Obama's presidency, the U6 unemployment rate was never mentioned because it was so bad.  The U6 rate was always in double digits, with a high point of 17%.  The media never wrote about it.
But now with President Trump, the U6 unemployment rate is mentioned several times a week by different media companies and they do so because the U6 is higher than the official unemployment rate.   Now, the U6 rate is close to 8%, over half of what it was for Obama.
Just more media bias on display.

Washington 7 Months In Review

So, almost 7 months have passed since President Trump took over the presidency from the failed Obama presidency.
From my perspective, President Trump has been doing a fantastic job policy wise.  Politically, he is a novice and says and does some stupid things.  But he is a very smart man and he beats down the democrats and the media so much that the v Democrats and media act like fools.
The GOP congress are pathetic who get very little done.
The Democrats are even worse.  They contribute nothing except to add to global warming every time they breathe or open their mouths.
The media has shown that they hate America and will say anything to get viewers, listeners and readers. The media is worse than Hitler's propaganda machine.   They put out lies that put people in danger and they don't care if someone gets hurt or killed because of the stories they write or talk about.  There many liberals who act violently towards anybody they disagree with.
Meanwhile the economy is growing at a very fast pace and more people are working as companies are hiring because they have fewer regulations to deal with and those who have hired illegal aliens are now forced to hire people who are legally entitled to work in the U.S..
You don't have to watch the news about politics because nothing much is happening that is of consequence.

What The Heck?

From the NY Post: Shortly after saying “I do,” a Tennessee bride was arrested for pulling a firearm out from beneath her wedding dress and pulling the trigger on her new hubby.
Police said Kate Elizabeth Prichard, 25, and her groom had started fighting only hours after their nuptials in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, according to news station WTVF.
The couple was drinking outside a local motel called the Clarion Inn when they began to fight, authorities said.
“She pulled out of her wedding dress a 9 mm pistol. Pointed it at her new husband’s head and pulled the trigger,” Murfreesboro Police Sgt. Kyle Evans told WTVF.
The gun, however, was not loaded, forcing the pistol-packing bride to load a round before reportedly firing a shot into the air. http://nypost.com/2017/08/01/bride-arrested-for-pulling-gun-from-wedding-dress-pointing-at-groom/
So, who the hell packs a gun in her wedding dress,,,,?

Rosie's Burns Down...Again

So sad.
 From the Kingman Daily Miner: Rosie’s Den Cafe was hit by a fire again early Monday morning.
According to sheriff’s spokeswoman Trish Carter, Mohave County Sheriff’s Office and Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District responded at 12:53 a.m. to the iconic restaurant on U.S. Highway 93. Golden Valley Fire Department and Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District also responded and assisted. 
The fire was contained to the basement and part of the staircase going up to the kitchen. The business suffered a significant amount of smoke damage. No one was inside the business during the fire. 
After the fire was extinguished, the owner reported a small safe with an undisclosed amount of cash had been stolen from the business. An investigation is ongoing and the incident is considered possible arson and theft.
This is the second fire at Rosie’s, best known as a pit stop for travelers between Las Vegas and Kingman. The building was completely destroyed by a fire in August 2011 and reopened in 2013. The diner and market is famous for the long lines of thousands Powerball players who would drive from Las Vegas in hopes of scoring the million-dollar prizes. http://m.kdminer.com/news/2017/jul/31/arson-suspected-rosies-den-fire/?
We drive by Rosie’s every time we went to Vegas.  I always wanted to check the place out and now I guess I never will.

RIP To Hero Dog

Military dog farewell
From the Chicago Tribune: Hundreds of people in Michigan came together to say a tear-filled final goodbye to a cancer-stricken dog who served three tours in Afghanistan with the U.S. Marines.
Cena the 10-year-old black lab received a hero's farewell Wednesday before being euthanized at the USS LST 393, a museum ship in Muskegon, and carried off in a flag-draped coffin.
Cena, who was recently diagnosed with terminal bone cancer, was a bomb-sniffer for the Marines until his retirement in 2014. The celebration for Cena was organized by his owner, Lance Cpl. Jeff Young, who was paired with the dog in 2009 and 2010 while on a combat tour in Afghanistan and who adopted him in 2014. Cena then became DeYoung's service dog to help him with his post-traumatic stress disorder.
"My whole adult life I've had Cena," DeYoung said. "When I was 19 overseas learning how to be responsible, I had Cena. And now I'm 27 and I'm having to say goodbye to one of the biggest pieces of my life."
DeYoung said he has carried Cena across rivers and thrown his body over him while under heavy fire from the Taliban. He said Cena kept DeYoung's body warm during cold desert nights, and comforted him when he lost seven friends in three weeks.
As part of the celebration, DeYoung took his dog on one last ride in a topless Jeep that was decorated and named "Cancer Response Team."
"It started off with my basically wanting to go to a dealership and wanting to borrow a Jeep for a day and really small to a community tribute or a community parade for him and he's truly deserved it all," DeYoung said. "The support, all the love people are giving him, he can see it and he can feel it."
The ceremony was attended by the U.S. Marine Corps League, Michigan State Police, Muskegon County Sheriff's Office, Muskegon City Police, Muskegon Fire Department and officers from several other departments, including a canine officer named Rex. Attendees gave one final three-volley salute with "Taps" playing in the background for Cena, who was wearing a decorated blue Marine vest.
"Lord, it is with heavy hearts that we are sending another Marine to you today," said chaplain Wesley Spyke as he addressed the crowd in prayer.
A GoFundMe page was set up for donations to help build a headstone for Cena.  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/midwest/ct-marine-dog-cancer-farewell-20170727-story.html  
This hero dog did more for this Country than probably 75% of  of our population.

Hope He Had Insurance

Pictured: The wrecked Ferrari 430 Scuderia, which crashed on the M1 near Barnsley, South Yorkshire
A former $340,000 car
Some people just should not have high performance cars, like this fool.
From the Daily Mail, UK: A man was left with damaged pride after he crashed his £260,000 supercar - having had it for just an HOUR.
Pictures released by police capture the remains of a jet black Ferrari 430 Scuderia after it crashed off the side of a motorway and transformed into a fireball.
Officers said the Ferrari driver left the road in wet conditions and slid 50 metres across a field before the vehicle burst into flames near Barnsley, South Yorks.
At the scene officers revealed the driver, who survived with cuts and bruises, said 'it was a Ferrari' with 'a hint of damaged pride' - before saying he 'only had it an hour'.
Police offices lifted the lid on the reason why motorists were stuck on at Junction 37 of the M1 earlier today after posting two pictures of the wreckage on Facebook.
South Yorkshire Police Operational Support posted: 'Afternoon folks, were you stuck in traffic this afternoon on the M1 south around junction 37? If so, here's why.
'Officers were deployed to a single vehicle collision with reports that the vehicle had left the carriageway and burst in to flames.
'Road conditions were wet at the time and as officers arrived on scene it became clear there was a vehicle well alight.

This Stinks

From the UK Daily Mail: A double manhunt has been launched after a 15-year-old girl was raped by two different men in the same day.
The teen was first assaulted in a secluded part of Witton railway station, in Birmingham, between 7pm on Tuesday and 2am the following morning.
She had walked to the station with her friend, but was led away by a man who approached her.
Shortly after that attack, the girl walked out of the station and flagged down a passing vehicle to ask for help.
However, after getting in the car she was then raped a second time by another man.
A major investigation, involving detectives from both British Transport Police (BTP) and West Midlands Police, is now under way to try to identify both attackers and appeal for witnesses.
The first attacker is described as Asian with light skin, brown eyes, was of a skinny build and about 6ft tall.

I wonder what part of Asia these dirty thugs were from?

Right Decision

While there are certainly a few transgender people who make good military service people, President Trump is right to deny them them the opportunity to serve in the military.
From the NY Times: President Trump announced on Wednesday that the United States will no longer “accept or allow” transgender people in the United States military, saying American forces “must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory” and could not afford to accommodate them.Mr. Trump made the surprise declaration in a series of posts on Twitter, saying he had come to the decision after talking to generals and military experts, whom he did not name.The sweeping policy decision was met with surprise at the Pentagon, outrage from advocacy groups and praise from social conservatives. It reverses the gradual transformation of the military under President Barack Obama, whose administration announced last year that transgender people could serve openly in the military. Mr. Obama’s defense secretary, Ashton B. Carter, also opened all combat roles to women and appointed the first openly gay Army secretary.The shift was announced with such haste that the White House could not answer basic inquiries about how it would be implemented. Chief among those questions was what would happen to the thousands of openly transgender people currently serving on active duty.“That’s something that the Department of Defense and the White House will have to work together as implementation takes place and is done so lawfully,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said.
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/26/us/politics/trump-transgender-military.html
First, no one has a right to serve in the military, so no one is losing any rights to serve.
Then, the military is a organization that depends on working as a team with the fewest interruptions and transgender people do cause interruptions, especially when we have seen what has happened in public schools with the bathroom issues with transgendered people.  If it happens in public schools it happens and will happen in the military.
So, President Trump made the correct decision and since he is the commander in chief, he is the man in charge, even though there will people who will attempt to sue and a liberal judge will surely say they are the commander in chief and rule against Trump.  But it will be overturned by the Supreme Court, when it goes there.

Minneapolis Muslim Cop Shooting Update

itemprop
Terrorist Cop?

Here is an update to the police shooting in which a muslim police officer shot an unarmed woman in her pajamas after she called 911 to report a possible case of assault. http://lasvegasbadger.blogspot.com/2017/07/possible-minneapolis-cop-terrorist.html

Well, basically, there is no update.
We still don't know what happened.
The muslim officer is refusing to talk to investigators.
His partner has said they were startled by a loud noise but he was shocked that the muslim officer fired his weapon.
The police chief said that the victim didn't have to die (no kidding) and then she, the chief, was fired.
No recordings of the shooting either through the dash cam or officer cameras was found.
There have been no real protests of the shooting by the usual thugs in Minneapolis and surrounding areas.  Could that be that the officer was black and the victim white?
Why haven't the Fed's opened up an investigation yet?

I am leaning more to the theory that this was a terrorist attack that is being covered up by the powers in Minneapolis than an accidental shooting or justified shooting.
If this was an accidental or justified shooting, the public would have been made aware of the facts of the case within days of the shooting but there are no facts that have been put out by the cops.
Why isn't the muslim cop talking to investigators and has lawyered up?  If he is innocent, he has nothing to hide?  If a civilian did the shooting, they would be under arrest by now.
Again, there is a cover up going on with this shooting by the mayor, former and current police chief, the media who are not asking the hard questions and others in power in Minneapolis.  They city probably will pay out a few millions to the victim's family to keep them quiet and then the story will go away quietly and a possible terrorist attack will be swept under the table by a liberal city government.

Freaky Fast

Jimmy John's Logo

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune: Jimmy John's is the "freaky fast" sandwich chain that specializes in delivery anytime anywhere, and apparently that includes bringing dinner to motorists blocking traffic on the freeway.
A driver whose car stalled out July 2 on a north metro freeway placed an order while he waited for help to arrive. As a State Trooper arrived at 5:18 p.m. to push the man's vehicle out of the northbound lanes of I-35W at County Road E2 in Arden Hills, so did a Jimmy John's vehicle to make the roadside delivery.
"At that moment, the driver for Jimmy John's said someone from this address ordered Jimmy John's," the trooper's report said. "At that moment, my driver stuck his head out the window of his truck and said, 'that was me.'  I guess Jimmy John's really does deliver anywhere fast."
The trooper pushed the hungry driver's vehicle off the freeway and into a nearby parking lot. Then issued the food-ordering driver a citation for driving with a suspended license. http://www.startribune.com/driver-orders-gets-delivery-of-jimmy-john-s-while-stalled-on-i-35w-in-arden-hills/436318803/
So, if you are in the middle of a traffic jam or causing a traffic jam, just call Jimmy Johns and they will be there before the cops get to the scene because they are Freaky Fast

Chicago Thugs Continue To Kill each Other

Tracking Chicago shooting victims
Tracking Chicago murders above

Another liberal city, another city with a huge murder rate.
From the Chicago Tribune: At least six people were killed and 35 others were wounded in weekend violence in Chicago as the number of homicides continues to outpace last year.
There have been at least 391 homicides this year, four more than last year when violence reached levels not seen in two decades, according to data kept by the Tribune.
The number of people shot, however, is down from last year: 2,112 compared to 2,337.
The first homicide of the weekend occurred Friday night when 23-year-old Brendon Frazier was killed in the 8800 block of South Eggleston Avenue, the South Side block where he lived. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-weekend-shootings-chicago-violence20170724-story.html
And yet, Democrats who run the city say nothing.  The Democrats elected to Congress say nothing but will bitch about Russia and Trump.  They have no clue how to fix the problems in Chicago and for that matter, other liberal cities with huge crime and murder issues.
I just can't wait for the mayor or Chicago, a huge supporter of Trump and Clinton, to blame President Trump for Chicago's problems, even though ex-president Obama could have helped Chicago but he refused to do so and continues to refuse to do anything to help Chicago.  Obama cares about his legacies and one of his legacies is the blood on his hands with all the big city violence that started under his watch.

Yeah, Not Me

From the NY Post: Conservative: Stop Enjoying Life, Say Greenies
The “Merchants of Misery — a k a climate scientists — are working overtime to shame you about all the pleasures you’re enjoying this summer and how your selfish indulgences will cause the planet’s demise,” warns Julie Kelly at National Review. Two new studies list “many of the sacrifices you should make to reduce your carbon footprint,” including having one fewer child. Other suggestions “include eating a plant-based diet, living car-free and avoiding air travel,” and even “keeping backyard chickens, letting your lawn grow longer, and hanging your clothes outside to dry.” So your life “should look something like this: stuck at home without a car, washing laundry in cold water and then clipping it on a clothesline while chasing down chickens and preparing locally grown vegetables for dinner.”  http://nypost.com/2017/07/24/de-blasios-impotence-excuse-the-mccain-tragedy-other-comments/
When I see rich liberals doing this, like a Johnny Depp, Al Gore, Hillary Clinton nd ex-president Obama, I may reconsider doing this but not until they do.

John McCain Needs To Resign

U.S. Senator, John McCain is my Senator and he needs to go and go quickly.  No, I don't mean die from his brain tumor but go quickly as in resigning from the U.S. senate.
McCain, everyone says, is a war hero.  Ok, I will give you that.  He served honorably during the Vietnam war and was captured and tortured in a North Vietnam POW prison camp and suffered serious, permanent injuries.
However, since he returned and has been in Congress, he has been a disaster for the State of Arizona and the United States.
McCain has been in Congress since 1982, a total of 35 years.  No matter who you are, 35 years in Congress is way too much time to serve and serve effectively.
He ran for president in 2008 and did a horrible job.
The man is almost 81 years old and it is time for him to move on.
He had a primary challenger in 2016, a fine lady named Kelli Ward, who also is challenging our other lame brained senator, Jeff Flake, and Kelli Ward would be a better senator than either McCain or Flake as she is a true conservative...
Which brings me to the real reason why McCain needs to resign.
He is a horrible, horrible Senator.
Arizona is one of the most conservative states int he United States and McCain hates conservatives.
McCain hates President Donald Trump (and I am sure, if you really got Trump to speak honestly, I am sure Trump feels the same way about McCain).
McCain undermines most GOP congresscritters and their proposed laws.
McCain wants to go to war with every country he disagrees with.  If he had his way, we would be fighting about 15 wars right now.
McCain just doesn't have a sound mind, that is before he was even diagnosed with his brain tumor.
The far left media love McCain because he is anti-GOP and anti-conservative.
McCain cares nothing about his constituents, especially veterans.  The biggest VA scandals are in Arizona, his home state, supposing he still lives here, which I doubt.  McCain and his family own about 8 houses/condos, according to Politico.
In short, McCain is a horrible Senator and with his ramining days, he should do some good and spend them with family and not in the senate.
John McCain needs to resign.
And when he goes, Kelli Ward should replace him.

Silly Puppy

The other week, we got a new addition to the family.  We think we got a part black lab and border collie mix.  I think Paul, (his name), is also part Alaska Husky as well because his favorite place to lay down is in the refrigerator.

Guess What Gets You Carded In Arizona?




Maybe I Am The Only Silly Enough To Think Of This

Maybe this issue is far to easy to figure out?
Thousands of people die each year of drug overdoses in the United States.
And prisons have problems getting drugs to execute thugs on death row.
So, why don't the prisons get the drugs that kills people on the streets and use them to execute thugs?
Probably too easy so I am there is a catch somewhere.

And That's A Wrap At Kmart

After almost 3 years working at the Kingman, AZ Kmart, I up and quit today.
It got to be too much to being all the heavy, hot and hard jobs while kids who 2 to 3 times younger than me get the easy jobs in the air conditioning
Also, what bothered me even more than my problems is what they did to a kid on Friday. They made him work inside a hot truck trailer unloading the truck for 4 straight hours with no break and they didn't supply him with water.  Needless to say, the kid ended up with severe heat exhaustion and had to go the hospital for several hours to get IV treatment and b re a thing problems.
So, I'm done with abuse of employees by the store manager along with her lies.

Possible Minneapolis Cop Terrorist Attack?

On the surface, this is one of most bizarre police shootings in recent memory.
From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:
The Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Justine Damond in the alley behind her home Saturday night has been identified as officer Mohamed Noor. Meanwhile, state investigators have confirmed that they did not find any weapons at the scene.
Noor, 31, joined the department in March 2015 as the first Somali police officer to patrol the 5th Precinct in southwest Minneapolis, according to a city newsletter. He holds a degree in Economics and Business Administration from Augsburg College. Before joining the department, he worked in property management in commercial and residential properties in Minneapolis and St. Louis, Mo....
Three sources with knowledge of the incident said Sunday that two officers in one squad car, responding to the 911 call, pulled into the alley. Damond, in her pajamas, went to the driver's side door and was talking to the driver. The officer in the passenger seat pulled his gun and shot Damond through the driver's side door, sources said. http://m.startribune.com/minneapolis-police-officer-who-shot-killed-woman-identified/434975623/?section=%2Fl
Normally, when there  is a police shooting the cops are out there with a narrative of what happened with a few hours.  Usually, thete is a confrontation between the cops and the thug and this case you have a middle age woman in her pajamas talking with the driver of the police car.
The only other possible scenario would be that shooter cop was playing or reckless with his gun and it discharged.
Either case, it is truly bizarre and an innocent woman was killed.

PT Barnum Was Right

The great circus man famously said "There is a sucker born every minute."
And true it is in Kingman AZ with the local Kmart closing.
The last few days we have been swamped because our store is closing Oct. 1.
They think they are getting a good deal with 10 to 30% off of every item.
But if these same people actually wanted to save more money, they could have saved 40-60% or more when we actually had really sales...not the pretend sale going on now.
Suckers.

Another Reason Why Healthcare Cost So Much In The U.S.

From the Washington Post:   More than 400 people across the country have been charged with participating in health care fraud scams totaling about $1.3 billion in false billings, including for the prescription and distribution of opioids.
In what federal officials Thursday called the “largest ever health care fraud enforcement action” by the Medicare Fraud Strike Force, 412 individuals, including 115 doctors, nurses and other licensed medical professionals, were arrested in a nationwide operation that involved more than 1,000 law enforcement agents in at least 30 states.
“One American dies of a drug overdose every 11 minutes and more than 2 million Americans are ensnared in addiction to prescription painkillers,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said at a news conference. “We will continue to find, arrest, prosecute, convict and incarcerate fraudsters and drug dealers wherever they are.”
Sessions said the operation began with tips from people in the affected communities and from “very sophisticated computer programs that identify outliers.”
The investigation particularly focused on medical professionals who were involved in the unlawful distribution of opioids and other prescription narcotics, officials said. The abuse of pharmaceutical opioids is widely blamed for a medical crisis involving tens of thousands of overdoses on heroin and fentanyl....
Among the 412 defendants, 120 were charged with opioid-related crimes. Six of the doctors were charged with operating a scheme in Michigan to prescribe patients with unnecessary opioids, some of which were then sold on the street. The doctors allegedly billed Medicare for $164 million in false and fraudulent claims, according to federal officials.
A clinic in Houston allegedly gave out prescriptions for cash. Officials said one doctor at the clinic provided 12,000 opioid prescriptions for over two million illegal painkiller doses. And a rehab facility for drug addicts in Palm Beach that is alleged to have recruited addicts with gift cards, visits to strip clubs and drugs billed the government for over $58 million in false treatments and tests.
“Narcotics officers have arrested schoolteachers, doctors, nurses and fellow law enforcement personnel,” said acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. “Many who succumb to the lure of the opioid high are kids…In some cases, we had addicts packed into standing-room only waiting rooms, waiting for those prescriptions.”...
“Health care fraud is a reprehensible crime,” said Health and Human Services Inspector General Daniel Levinson. “It not only represents a theft from taxpayers who fund these vital programs, but impacts the millions of Americans who rely on Medicare and Medicaid.”
Obviously, if those arrested gave out illegal prescriptions, then they should be prosecuted, especially the Palm Beach clinic where they bribed patients to go there.  Bribes will not help those addicted.
However, I have no sympathy for those who overdosed on the pills.  They chose to overdose, probably to get a high or try to relieve the pain they in.  I feel for the families or friends but not the dead.  They chose their path in life, gambled and lost.  And I say this as a person who does need pain meds to be able to work or even sleep.

The New McDonalds??

From the Leicester (UK) Mercury: A McDonald's restaurant in Leicestershire is set to introduce table service as part of a major store revamp.
Hungry customers will also be able to place their order at a digital kiosk and surf the web on free to use tablets.
The fast food joint in Lountside, Ashby, is set to create between 25 and 30 jobs in the digital makeover.

The fast food place is introducing the following:
  • Four self-order kiosks - which will also allow customers to personalise their meals
  • Table service
  • New digital menu boards
  • Introduction of in-store tablets
  • Improving the staff room
The franchise owner said that these changes will also lead to more staff in front of the counter to help people use the self-order kiosks and digital menus.

I've tried a fast food kiosk once and failed miserably and will never try it again.
So, if you get table service, do you tip the server?

Hippos 3000 Humans 27


Ok, I didn't know this.
From Fox News: A large number of hippopotamuses have been killed in the western part of Niger after villagers blamed them for destroying crops and livestock.
In Ayorou, which attracts a great deal of tourists, at least 27 hippos have been destroyed, authorities said. 
The "massacre ...started in March and then assumed dramatic proportions" mainly in island settlements on the Niger river, Jando Rhichi Algaher, told the Agence France-Presse....
Despite this particular species of hippopotamus being protected, they are dangerous creatures. Approximately 3,000 people are killed each year by hippos, according to data compiled by Mother Nature Network.   http://www.foxnews.com/science/2017/07/13/27-hippos-massacred-in-african-village-after-crop-livestock-destruction.html
I never realized hippos kill that many people,  I mean, they are so fat but they can run fast, up to 19mph on their stubby little legs.  They probably lure victims into a false sense of security and then stomp or bite the humans.
I'm pretty sure this does not happen:

Ouch!!

This hurts to even read this article.
From the Kingman Daily Miner:  A 19-year-old Bullhead City resident allegedly shot his own sexual organ July 10 by accident.
According to a Mohave County Sheriff’s Office press release, the man was driving on State Route 95 between Aztec and El Rodeo roads with his firearm unsecured in the front of his pants. He allegedly grabbed the firearm and it discharged, according to the report.
He was airlifted from Valley View Medical Center to Sunrise Medical Center in Las Vegas due to a wound to his organ.  https://kdminer.com/news/2017/jul/11/bullhead-city-man-accidentally-shoots-self-groin-h/
My guess is he had thoughts of becoming trans-gendered, he is probably half way there.

Sad Day For The Marines

From MS News Now: According to the U.S. Naval Institute, the crash of a KC-130T in LeFlore County, Mississippi is the deadliest Marine Corps aviation mishap since 2005.
Sixteen people were killed, including 15 Marines and one Navy Corpsman.
According to a Marine Corps spokesperson, the marine aircraft was a KC-130T from Marine Aerial Refueling and Transport Squadron (VMGR) 452, Marine Air Group-49, 4th Marine Aircraft Wing, Marine Forces Reserve based in New York. The flight originated from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., as the squadron was taking personnel and equipment from there to Naval Air Field El Centro, California.
The aircraft was transporting six Marines and one Navy sailor from Marine Corps Forces, Special Operations Command and their associated equipment for routine small unit pre-deployment training at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Ariz. All seven were from the Camp Lejeune-based 2d Marine Raider Battalion.
It's not clear yet where the other marines were based.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire MARSOC family at this time," said the MARSOC chief of staff. "The incredible demands of this dangerous and demanding calling forge some of the tightest unit and family bonds found in the U.S. military. This loss impacts us all."   
According to Naval Air Systems, this plane is one of only 26 in the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Navy inventory. 
The aircraft crashed in Leflore County just off Highway 82 on Monday evening and according to Leflore Co. EOC, had structural failure at 20,000 feet.
The plane is believed to have exploded in mid-air. Investigators said they found debris on both sides of the highway, leading them to believe an explosion happened prior to the crash.
Equipment on board the plane included various small arms ammunition and personal weapons. An Explosive Ordinance Disposal team was called out to the scene as a precaution.
The identities of the victims are not being released yet to allow time for loved ones to be notified appropriately.
The Marine Corps said that while they are still investigating the details of the crash, their primary focus is to provide the necessary support and resources to friends, family, and service members who are going through this difficult time.  http://www.msnewsnow.com/story/35851293/update-16-people-on-board-military-c-130-killed-in-leflore-county-plane-crash
One cannot imagine the horror if anybody lived from the explosion, had to plummet 20,000 feet to their deaths
RIP to the Marines and Sailor and prayers to their families, friends and communities.
