Hillary The Hypocrite

From the U.K. Daily Mail:
Just hours after Hillary Clinton unveiled her presidential campaign's push to solve global warming through an aggressive carbon-cutting plan, she sauntered up the steps of a 19-seat private jet in Des Moines, Iowa.
The aircraft, a Dassault model Falcon 900B, burns 347 gallons of fuel per hour. And like all Dassault business jets, Hillary's ride was made in France. 
The Trump-esque transportation costs $5,850 per hour to rent, according to the website of Executive Fliteways, the company that owns it.
And she has used the same plane before, including on at least one trip for speeches that brought her $500,000 in fees.
On Monday the Democratic presidential front-runner announced the details of her initiative to tackle climate change, calling it 'one of the most urgent threats of our time.' 
But shortly afterward, a videographer working with the conservative America Rising PAC spotted her at the private air terminal in Des Moines.
FIfteen seconds of video shot just after 12:00 noon, local time, shows Clinton walking up the plane's stairs while an aide hodls a giant black umbrella over her head to sheld her from falling rain.
'Despite her campaign’s best efforts to rebrand her as a down-to-earth fighter for "everyday Americans," Hillary Clinton’s jet-setting ways are just further confirmation that she’s out of touch with the American people,' the group's communications driector Jeff Bechdel told DailyMail.com.
'It’s that kind of hypocrisy that makes the majority of voters say Clinton is not honest or trustworthy.' 
Sadly, much of the U.S. press won't report on this worst presidential candidate ever hypocrisy.
Instead, we have to rely on the daily Mail and Drudge to report on this liberal moron.


The New Hobby In Las Vegas

From the Las Vegas Sun:
Police are seeking the public's help to identify suspects they say have been ramming stolen vehicles into law enforcement vehicles and fleeing the scene.
There have been six occurrences, including one this morning in which a vehicle stolen about 3 a.m. in the west valley was crashed into a nearby Nevada Highway Patrol vehicle, according to police.
The incidents began April 29 in Henderson and have also occurred in Las Vegas and Boulder City, police said.
The suspects typically steal a truck then rig the gas pedal to crash into unoccupied law enforcement vehicles, police said. The damaged vehicles have included Metro Police K-9 vehicles, an unmarked car and a U.S. Bureau of Reclamation K-9 vehicle, Officer Larry Hadfield said.
Surveillance video from one of the incidents shows a truck and sedan believed to be involved in the crimes, police said.  http://lasvegassun.com/news/2015/jul/27/suspects-wanted-ramming-law-enforcement-vehicles/
Kind of strange... Stealing cars just to run into unoccupied police cars.
Must be the new hobby by the bored kids in Vegas and vicinity.

Can The Police Ever Be Able To Do Their Job Again Without Fear Of Thugs?

This is just getting stupid.
From the NY Daily News: Police arresting a 25-year-old man who refused to leave a Brooklyn Target punched the man as they pinned him to the ground, a video posted online shows.
As four officers pin the squirming Alando Brissett down on the floor of the Flatlands store, a male and female officer punched him in the back several times, the tense 14-minute video shows.
“Stop f---ing hitting him,” one woman yelled as a crowd gathers during the Saturday night incident, which happened around 7:20 p.m., police said.
A woman in a blue shirt who walked toward the melee, pointing and apparently scolding the officers, is shooed away as more police arrive on scene, the video shows.
As cops hold down Brissett, the male officer who had punched him uses his knee to pin his head to the floor, according to the video.
“One person, 50 police,” one man yells as 15 to 20 more officers walk into the view of the lens.  http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/brooklyn/nypd-punch-pin-man-arrest-bklyn-target-video-article-1.2305763
This is getting ridiculous.  The cops lately can't do their job without being videotaped or harassed.
This weekend in Cleveland, the cops arrested a Black 14 year old for being drunk in public and a group of Black thugs attacked the cops and the cops had to use tear gas to get the thugs to back off.  It was a group of Black Lives Matter.  http://www.newsnet5.com/news/local-news/cleveland-metro/protesters-rally-against-cleveland-police
So, these thugs would rather have the cops ignore a drunk 14 year old and let him continue so he could possibly harm himself and/or others?
But these same thugs stay silent when innocent Blacks are murdered by black thugs in their own community.  These thugs are just as dangerous as the murderers that kill in their community because they either excuse or ignore the killing of innocents of their community.
But I guess, anybody with a cell phone with a camera can hit the jackpot if they see a cop doing their job against a thug who decides they want to run or fight it out with the cops.  They tape and their tape just might the tabloids or the evening news.
and the cops, many I believe, are probably thinking they should let the thugs and let them destroy their community because some idiot decides they want to tape what is going on.

Mike Huckabee Is Right

The Democrats and GOP establishment RINO's are are all wringing and crying about what Mike Huckabee said about the horrible deal between the U.S. and a few of our equally corruptible allies and the Anti-Sematic, Israel hating country of Iran.
From Fox News: President Obama and Jeb Bush have drawn the ire of Sen. Ted Cruz after they attacked Gov. Mike Huckabee for his comments about the Iran
nuclear deal. 

Huckabee said the president’s Iran policy would “take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.”
The president bristled at what he called a “ridiculous” comment.
“The particular comments of Mr. Huckabee are just part of a general pattern we’ve seen that would be considered ridiculous if it weren’t so sad,” he said.
“We’ve had a sitting senator call John Kerry Pontius Pilate. We’ve had a sitting senator, who also happens to be running for president, suggest that I’m the leading state sponsor of terrorism. These are leaders in the Republican Party.”
Cruz rebuffed the president’s slap and said it was “particularly sad today that President Obama chose to engage in gutter politics – attacking Mike Huckabee by name, attacking me – both of us for standing up against this catastrophic deal – rather than defending the merits.”  http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2015/07/27/cruz-defends-huckabee-accuses-obama-gutter-politics.html?intcmp=hplnws
Here are a few facts:
Iran hates Israel so much that call for the destruction of Israel and death to all Jews.
Iran already sponsors terrorists who attack Israel like Hezbollah and other terrorist thugs.
Iran has called for the death to America.. by it's it Supreme Ayatollah Ass Hole.
President Obama also hates Israel.  While he says he doesn't hate Israel, his actions say otherwise.
So, Huckabee's comment was spot on.  Iran would love to kill all the Jews in Israel and the world and the reference to Nazi Germany was spot on.
So, congrats to Huckabee for sticking up for Israel and hiss and boos to the GOP RINO's and the democrats, especially Obama.

The Once Proud FDNY Being Destroyed By Liberals

Image result for images of fdny
When you hear the initials FDNY (Fire Department Of New York or the New York City Fire Department), you think of the world best, the worlds bravest fire department and firefighters.
From 9-11 where they lost 343 firefighters that day and many more from 9-11 illnesses, the busiest to heroic rescues, to some of the most innovative equipment and strategies, to the most physically fit firefighters in the world.
Except now, the new firefighters are now allowed to fail the physical part of training and still become a firefighter.
From Fire rescue 1: An FDNY recruit is getting a third chance to pass the training academy after collecting over $81,000 for a year in desk jobs.
NY Post reported that Choeurlyne Doirin-Holder, 39, failed midway through a fire academy class in 2013 and returned to her former job as an EMT. She entered another class in 2014, but dropped out due to an injury. FDNY kept her on the payroll and she made $81,376 last year — about $26,000 more than what she made as an EMT and well more than the $39,370 starting firefighters earn.
"She was qualified as an EMT. She should have been serving the public while waiting for the next probie class, but was paid as a full-time firefighter to do office work and train on the payroll," a high-ranking source told the Post.
A classmate called Doirin-Holder "the most pathetic specimen of physical fitness I've ever seen," saying she failed to run 1.5 miles in 12 minutes, stopped to walk and got winded walking up stairs, according to the report.
Doirin-Holder declined to comment, referring questions to the FDNY.
"We don't discuss individuals or individual cases while in the academy," said spokesman Jim Long.
Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro confirmed in a letter to firefighter union president Steve Cassidy that probationary firefighters no longer have to pass the FST if they do well on academics and practical skills or individual tasks. Also, they can demonstrate adequate aerobic capacity on a Stairmaster machine if they fail the 1.5 mile run, Nigro said.  http://www.firerescue1.com/Firefighter-Training/articles/3016076-FDNY-recruit-fails-test-earns-81K-desk-job
At the average age of a middle age dinosaur, with back, knee and other physical aliments, I probably run the 1.5 miles in under 12 minutes.  That pace is about 9 minutes a mile, which is a fast walking pace.
And when she failed this part of the test, she was able to land a desk job instead of going back to being an EMT and working on the ambulances and on to p of that, get a whole lot of overtime pay and make $81,000+ for the year, much more than the rookies or probies got, and they got through the fire academy, which is probably the toughest fire academy in the world.
And the reason why the FDNY is being ripped apart?
First, some liberal judges have decided that the FDNY discriminated against women and minorities based on the FDNY and ordered the FDNY to offer jobs to minority men and women and redo the testing procedures.
However, when ultra liberal Bill de Blasio was elected mayor, he refused to appeal the judge's rulings and he ordered the Fire commissioner/chief to dummy down firefighter requirements for those who tested and those who may be accepted to the fire academy.
So far, there have been a handful of minority women who have not passed the physical requirements of the fire academy but were accepted as firefighters nonetheless.
Not only is this moronic and dummy's down firefighting requirements needed to work on the busiest fire department in the world, they also put their fellow firefighters at risk and it becomes a life and death situation.
For instance, if a firefighter is trapped in a fire, how is a firefighter who is unable to run a slow mile and a half without almost collapsing be able to throw the injured firefighter over their shoulder and carry them out of the burning structure?
As an aside, is doing a walk/run on Stairmaster the same as actually doing some running or actually walking up 45 stories of a NYC high-rise?
Of course not and it shows just how moronic the upper echelon of the FDNY the mayor's office has become.
Or is they are not strong enough, can they carry 100 pounds of equipment into a fire or will they have to depend on their partner to carry their own equipment along with some of the out of shape firefighter's equipment.
So, once again, we see liberals trying to destroy a proud organization so that they can pat themselves on the shoulder and say what a good person they are, when in reality, they are putting other people in a life or death situations when it just so they can look good.
Which is a better indicator of how good a shape a person is by using this:

or climbing this:

This Fire Chief Is Just A Big Government Liberal

Here in the Kingman, AZ, area one of the most conservative counties in the country, there is a crisis in fire protection and the fire chief in charge is just another big government liberal moron.
From the Kingman Daily Miner: The human cost of rapidly declining revenue for fire districts in Arizona can be found on the way to Las Vegas in Dolan Springs and Meadview, where waiting on help to arrive has turned into a frustrating and sometimes heartbreaking exercise in futility.
Not too long ago, the vast Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District boasted seven ambulances, a number of fire vehicles and the staff to operate them. People bought homes in Dolan Springs and elsewhere in the district based in part on the confidence the robust department inspired.
What they didn't know was that the district was burning through its budget until it went bankrupt.
Today, the troubled district is down to three firefighter-paramedics and a fraction of its former fleet - and that trio must cover a district that encompasses a staggering 7,000 square miles.
To put that into perspective, the Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District represents an area larger than four states and is nearly the size of New Jersey.
Troubled history
People in Dolan Springs say the dramatic downsizing has rendered the department incapable of responding to fire or EMS calls in a timely manner - or with the equipment and items they need to help residents.
When the district became insolvent, it was put on Patrick Moore to get it back on firm financial footing.
The only way for the chief of the Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District to do that was to cut spending down to a level the district could afford, which happens to be three firefighter-paramedics, two stationed in Dolan Springs and one in Meadview.
Moore said he understands the frustration in Dolan Springs. Unfortunately, there are a number of issues in play that indicate things will not get better anytime soon.
Here are a few.
• The district is far too large for its limited assets.
• The district can only afford three firefighters and they do not earn as much as do their counterparts at other regional departments, including at Northern Arizona Consolidated, so turnover is a problem. Moore said it took about two months to fill a vacancy in the district, meaning it wasn't uncommon for a single firefighter to respond to fires and EMS incidents....

Moore agrees on the safety issue. He said state lawmakers passed a trio of new tax rules regarding fire districts that severely limit how much revenue they can generate. As a result, Moore rarely has enough firefighters on duty to safely fight a standard house fire, which is about a dozen, according to best practices guidelines for the Fire Service.
In a recent interview regarding tax laws that have cut funding to fire districts across the state, Moore said firefighters have been given pagers and are essentially on call to respond to incidents throughout the Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District.
But Moore said the days of volunteers are all but gone because state and federal rules require volunteers to undergo the same training and to obtain identical certifications as paid firefighters.
  
http://kdminer.com/main.asp?SectionID=1&SubSectionID=1&ArticleID=66751
So, according to this moron fire chief, it is better to go with 3 firefighters on duty in 7000 square miles, including a very long stretch of Hwy 93, which links Las Vegas and Phoenix.
There are far more volunteer firefighters and fire departments in the United States than full time paid fire departments and firefighters.
And all these volunteer fire departments have to train and hold the certifications- Firefighter 1 and 2.  And then some people would just opt to work on the ambulance and they can become EMT's or even paramedics.  Further, some people can help out by being drivers, doing paperwork, help out behind the scenes, direct traffic at emergencies and much more.
But this big government liberal hate the very idea that volunteer firefighters can do the same thing as paid firefighters.  He feels threatened by volunteers and is probably afraid that a volunteer fire chief could do just as good of job as he can do.  actually, that's probably not much of a stretch, considering how he runs the Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire department.
So, to me this shocking thinking- a big government liberal moron, in a very conservative, almost all Republican voting county.

I Don't Blame Reggie Jackson For Being Angry

From ESPN: Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson confirmed that he got into an altercation with a fan outside a Cooperstown restaurant Friday night but denied a report that the encounter turned physical.
The New York Daily News reported that Jackson, in Cooperstown for the Baseball Hall of Fame's induction weekend, was involved in what appeared to be a "heated, physical confrontation" with an autograph seeker. TMZ posted a 17-second video of the encounter Saturday.
Jackson told reporters that he ate dinner with a few friends at a sushi restaurant and was leaving through a back entrance when a group of fans began to gather. He said he was approached by one fan who had already gotten an autograph from him earlier Friday on the golf course.
Jackson said he used profanity and called a halt to the impromptu autograph session. He said he was getting in a car with his friends and leaving the restaurant when a scuffle appeared to break out behind him.
"I was upset because it was kind of an 'over and over' thing," Jackson said Saturday. "It's 10:00 at night -- it's time to go home. Leave us alone. So the words got heated. But as far as anybody touching someone, that did not come from me.
"I was disappointed that the yelling happened, but it's all day, all night sometimes with people. You wish those things don't happen. I've been stern before with people verbally, but you don't touch the public. In today's world, you can't do that."  http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/13317808/reggie-jackson-acknowledges-confrontation-denies-shoving-fan-cooperstown
For some reason, people think they have a right to bother famous people who are out to eat with their friends or they are just doing their jobs.
I have been in the Pawn Stars pawn store when the stars of the show come out to do their work and some people just get so rude that they get in the star's face for no real reason, whatsoever.
Reggie Jackson just wanted to eat with his friend and some morons think they are more important than anything else.
so, I don't blame Reggie
Jackson for getting mad at some rude people who want his autograph. 
Can't they just let the guy eat in peace with his friends?

They Didn't See This Coming?

From the LVRJ:
A fire caused an estimated $340,000 in damage to a Henderson business late Friday night.
The Henderson Fire Department responded to a call from The Psychic Reader, 140 E. Horizon Drive, at 10:45 p.m., spokeswoman Kathleen Richards said. Passing motorists in the area saw heavy smoke and flames in the area, prompting them to call for help.
Responding firefighters prevented the fire from spreading to nearby businesses. No injuries were reported, Richards said.
The cause of the fire was still under investigation on Saturday night.

They are not very good psychic(s) if they didn't see this coming.

Huh??

From the Havre Daily News: Officers investigated a 3:21 p.m. Thursday complaint at the police station about keys that were found by Lincoln-McKinley School.   http://www.havredailynews.com/story/2015/07/24/local/for-the-record-july-24-2015/504928.html
That must be 1 hell of a school to find keys and turn them into the cops.
Journalism is so quickly going down the drain.

Thank You Scott Walker

Take on government unions and you are dangerous????
From the Washington Post: “First off,” Scott Walker proclaimed, “we took on the unions, and we won. We won!”
Taking on the unions is usually first off for Walker, the Wisconsin governor and Republican presidential candidate. It is the very rationale for his candidacy. And on Thursday, he took a detour from the campaign trail to appear here before the annual meeting of the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council, a group of state legislators dedicated in large part to defeating unions....
This is the essence of Walker’s appeal — and why he is so dangerous. He is not as outrageous as Donald Trump and Sen.­­ Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but his technique of scapegoating unions for the nation’s ills is no less demagogic. Sixty-five years ago, another man from Wisconsin made himself a national reputation by frightening the country about the menace of communists, though the actual danger they represented was negligible. Scott Walker is not Joe McCarthy, but his technique is similar: He suggests that the nation’s ills can be cured by fighting labor unions (foremost among the “big government special interests” hurting the United States), even though unions represent just 11 percent of the U.S. workforce and have been at a low ebb.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/why-scott-walker-is-so-dangerous/2015/07/23/8b462bea-3182-11e5-97ae-30a30cca95d7_story.html
First, if you piss off a guy with a girl's name, you are not doing too badly.
And yes, government unions have done much damage to the country, on the Federal, State and local levels and Walker dealt with it.
And it made things better.
Before, the unions dictated how the workers would work, now the supervisors do.
And the unions are just not that popular in the government sector, as the unions have lost a significant number of government workers.  Is the union angry?  Of course because the union leaders are not getting all the mandatory dues that they got before Act 10 and now these union thug leaders are no longer living high on the hog or union worker.  Their lavish lifestyles are being diminished in Wisconsin and that is a good thing.
So, thank you Scott Walker.  Thank you for taking on government unions and winning.

Thanks Ted Cruz

From Fox News:
An extraordinary scene unfolded on the Senate floor Friday as Republican Sen. Ted Cruz bluntly accused Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of lying and said he's running the Senate like his Democratic predecessor. 
The charges from the Texas senator and GOP presidential candidate were a rare departure from the Senate's usual staid decorum, even for a politician famous for his fiery speeches. 
At issue were assurances Cruz claimed McConnell, R-Ky., had given that there was no deal to allow a vote to renew the federal Export-Import Bank -- a little-known federal agency that has become a rallying cry for conservatives. Cruz rose to deliver his remarks moments after McConnell had lined up a vote on the bank. 
"It saddens me to say this. I sat in my office, I told my staff the majority leader looked me in the eye and looked 54 Republicans in the eye. I cannot believe he would tell a flat-out lie, and I voted based on those assurances that he made to each and every one of us," Cruz said. 
"What we just saw today was an absolute demonstration that not only what he told every Republican senator, but what he told the press over and over and over again, was a simple lie." 
Reports had emerged earlier this year that McConnell privately pledged a vote on the Ex-Im Bank, in exchange for winning support on President Obama's trade agenda. Cruz says he was assured at the time there was no deal. 
He also charged that the Senate under Republican control is no different from when Harry Reid of Nevada ran the chamber and was accused by the GOP of shutting down debate and limiting amendments.   http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/07/24/cruz-on-senate-floor-accuses-gop-leader-mcconnell-lying/?intcmp=hplnws
Cruz is right.  McConnell is a disgrace and is an Obama light model.
And thanks to the morons in Kentucky, we are stuck with this idiot in the Senate for the foreseeable future.

Thanks Obama

From the LVRJ:
Two former detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba were arrested by Belgian police in a counterterrorism operation targeting a recruiting network for al Qaeda in Syria.
They were arrested Wednesday night along with three others as they were about to break into a house to raise funds in the town of Hoboken, near Antwerp, a senior Belgian counterterrorism official told CNN.
"We have dismantled a serious recruiting network for Syria," the official told CNN.
One of the former Guantanamo Bay detainees was Moussa Zemmouri, 37, a Moroccan national born in Antwerp, Belgian federal prosecutors announced Friday. The other was an Algerian identified as Soufiane A., who prosecutors believe spent time in Syria.
Both have been charged with participating in the activities of a terrorist group and all five have been charged with attempted armed robbery.  http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/nation-and-world/ex-guantanamo-bay-detainees-arrested-belgian-police
Obama is looking for his legacy and his legacy will be death, destruction and making the middle class poor.

Cute

How could anyone resist those faces? Apparently, no one, once a picture of hugging dogs Kala and Keira were posted on Facebook with a plea to save their lives.
 It only took two hours for someone to rescue the dogs, who were in a shelter but couldn’t find anyone to adopt them, Angels Among Us Pet Rescue in Atlanta posted on Facebook.
The post of the hugging dogs — a black-and-white boxer mix (Keira) and Kala, the puppy-faced brown pooch desperately clinging to the other’s neck — went online Monday. The pet rescue was desperate to get them adopted, as both were scheduled to be euthanized within hours, People added.
 
Embedded image permalink
We have 4 rescue dogs at our home, all from the street where they were abandoned by their owners, so it is good to see the dogs being rescued and into, hopefully, loving homes.
 

And This Is Obama"s General

Good thing he is retiring soon or he would have been fired.
From Fox News: The Army’s top officer told Fox News Tuesday it’s “frustrating” to watch the gains he helped achieve in Iraq disintegrate at the hands of the Islamic State, saying in an exit interview that the chaos now unfolding “might have been prevented” had the U.S. stayed more engaged.
Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno, weeks away from retirement after 39 years in uniform, spent more time in Iraq than any other U.S. Army general -- more than four years, the last two as top commander. He is widely viewed as a key architect of the Iraq surge....
“It's frustrating to watch it,” Odierno said. “I go back to the work we did in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 and we got it to a place that was really good. Violence was low, the economy was growing, politics looked like it was heading in the right direction.”
Odierno said the fall of large parts of Iraq was not inevitable, reiterating concerns about the pace of the U.S. troop withdrawal there.

“If we had stayed a little more engaged, I think maybe it might have been prevented,” he said. “I've always believed the United States played the role of honest broker between all the groups and when we pulled ourselves out, we lost that role.”
In 2009, while still the top commander in Iraq, Odierno recommended keeping 30,000-35,000 U.S. troops after the end of 2011, when the U.S. was scheduled to pull out. The recommendation was not followed.
“I think it would have been good for us to stay,” Odierno said, when asked if it was a mistake to pull out....
While Odierno says he supports the recently announced nuclear deal with Iran, he warned that Iran will not change its behavior in the region.
“Iran has continued to do malign activities throughout the Middle East [and] they will continue,” warned Odierno, who blamed Iran for contributing to the unraveling of Iraq and the rise of ISIS.
Dempsey recently told Congress that Iran was responsible for roughly 500 American deaths, an estimate Odierno did not dispute.
Odierno said of Iran: “We can't be na├»ve.”
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/07/21/exclusive-army-chief-odierno-in-exit-interview-says-us-could-have-prevented/
General Odierno must have bit his tongue a couple of times a day when he worked as Obama's lead General and the poor guy probably has no feeling in his tongue.

Somewhat Personal

Last week, while at work, I was helping to unload a semi-trailer at the local K-Mart, where I worked.
As I was climbing into the trailer, my foot slipped and my knee crashed into the metal plating.
Now, my leg is still quite swollen and bruised and I have doing a lot of bed rest, when not at work, so I have not been able to do much blogging.
But, it kind of pisses me off because our store has decided that us old folks have to do the heavy lifting jobs while the 18-25 year olds do the light duty mop up work.  Because of this, I got hurt.
So, please bear with me as I try to heal from the injury.

Union Thug going Bye Bye To Prison

When you look in the dictionary for the word "thug" this thug's picture is shown prominently. 
From Philly.com: Joseph Dougherty, once one of the city's most powerful labor leaders and an unapologetic enemy of nonunion builders, was sentenced Monday to 19 years and two months in federal prison for overseeing a years-long campaign of sabotage, arson, and intimidation to keep members of his Ironworkers Local 401 employed. 
The sentence - the stiffest in a racketeering conspiracy case that led to convictions of 11 other ironworkers - was hailed as a significant victory in a city where contractors have long complained of the violent tactics employed by some construction unions. Comparing Dougherty to Lady Macbeth, U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson chastised the 73-year-old business manager for acting behind the scenes and relying on "an army of ironworkers" to commit crimes for him. "That's the real tragedy of this case," Baylson said. "His leadership led to a lot of damage. It led to a lot of crimes. It continued the bad reputation Philadelphia has for tolerating union violence."
That list included some of the most high-profile incidents in the city's recent history, such as the 2012 arson of a Quaker meetinghouse in Chestnut Hill, the baseball-bat beatings of nonunion workers outside a King of Prussia Toys R Us in 2010, and an all-out brawl in 2013 between ironworkers and members of the Carpenters union.  http://philly.com/

Good bye and good riddance.
Have fun behind the iron bars of prison.

It's Tough To be A Weak Kneed Liberal

No wonder is last in the polls.
From CNN: Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley apologized on Saturday for saying "All lives matter" while discussing police violence against African-Americans with liberal demonstrators.
Several dozen demonstrators interrupted the former Maryland governor while he was speaking here at the Netroots Nation conference, a gathering of liberal activists, demanding that he address criminal justice and police brutality. When they shouted, "Black lives matter!" a rallying cry of protests that broke out after several black Americans were killed at the hands of police in recent months, O'Malley responded: "Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter."
The demonstrators, who were mostly black, responded by booing him and shouting him down.
Later that day, O'Malley apologized for using the phrase in that context if it was perceived that he was minimizing the importance of blacks killed by police.
"I meant no disrespect," O'Malley said in an interview on This Week in Blackness, a digital show. "That was a mistake on my part and I meant no disrespect. I did not mean to be insensitive in any way or communicate that I did not understand the tremendous passion, commitment and feeling and depth of feeling that all of us should be attaching to this issue."  http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/18/politics/martin-omalley-all-lives-matter/index.html
There are so many things wrong here.
First, O'Malley was right, all lives matter but all these black liberal haters think that only black thugs who resist arrest or run from the cops, well, there lives matter most.  These same liberal black leaders will not say a darn word about all the black violence in the inner cities which are killing not only black gang members but also killing the innocent Black children, the elderly and those who have nothing to do with gangs or crimes.
And no wonder O'Malley is doing so badly in the polls.  He his the polar opposite of Donald Trump.  While Trump is arrogant and brash, O'Malley is timid and afraid.  O'Malley makes President Obama look like a Churchill or a Reagan instead of a Neville Chamberlin.
If O'Malley was elected president, can you imagine what kind of talks he would have with Vladimir Putin?  Heck, we would be drinking vodka and eating Borscht within a month of his inauguration.  Finally, why is he on a show named "This Week In Blackness"? 
Can you imagine if a Trump or Walker was on a show named "This Week In Whiteness"?

Amateur Leading British Open

This hasn't happened since 1927.
From ESPN: Paul Dunne strode along the 18th fairway Sunday afternoon, soaking in the cheers, waving to the crowd, acting like the Old Course was his own personal playground.
And for a day, at least, it was.
His 66 tied him atop The Open leaderboard, in some heady company, with a different kind of history within his grasp. No amateur has won The Open since Bobby Jones in 1930. No amateur has led The Open through 54 holes since Jones in 1927.   http://espn.go.com/golf/theopen15/story/_/id/13277336/amateur-dunne-inches-closer-own-open-history
If you are a bettor, he is going off as a 20-1 shot to win tomorrow.  At the beginning of the tournament, he was a 1500-1 shot to win.

Packers Retire Favre's Number

Just imagine, 67,000 people paid to see Brett Favre's number 4 retired from the Green Bay Packers.  No game, no concert.  Just seeing the ceremony. 
From ESPN: Former Green Bay Packers president Bob Harlan called him the "greatest player we've ever had," but on the day Brett Favre was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame and his No. 4 retired, the legendary former quarterback was more humbled by the fans.
More than 67,000 of them packed Lambeau Field to watch Favre's induction on the stadium video boards, a sign that all had been forgiven for the way his career in Green Bay ended in the summer of 2008, when he unretired and was traded to the New York Jets, only to play two more seasons for the rival Minnesota Vikings.
"It was like I never left," Favre said Saturday of walking back onto Lambeau Field. "It was a great feeling."
Favre is the sixth Packers player to have a number retired by the team, joining Tony Canadeo (3), Don Hutson (14), Bart Starr (15), Ray Nitschke (66) and Reggie White (92).  http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/13280080/brett-favre-humbled-fan-response-green-bay-packers-hall-fame-induction
I am kind of surprised that 67,000 paid, and in fact the tickets sold out in just a couple of hours, even though Favre decided to play the hated Minnesota Vikings.
But hey, Favre was a spectacular player who brought the Packers out of has beens and won a Super Bowl.
So, congratulations to Favre and thanks for the memories.

More Evidence Dogs Are Smarter Than Humans

Today, in Kingman and surrounding areas, we had thunderstorms with flash flooding throughiut the area.
My dogs, all 4 of them, would not step outside to do their business.
However, at K-Mart, many people decided that during the height of the storm, that would be a good time to go shopping.  Shopping for swimming pools, backpacks and other assorted junk.
I can imagine what some families said:
"Hey ma, it's raining and thundering outside.  Gather the kids and let's go to Wal-Mart to buy us some school supplies and a swimming pool.  Maybe buy us a vacuum cleaner.  After all, it can't wait 4 hours for the rain to stop".
Yep, there are times when dogs are smarter than us humans.

muslim Terrorist Killed The Marines

I'm shocked, I tell you, just shocked.
From CBS: A gunman unleashed a barrage of gunfire at two military facilities Thursday in Tennessee, killing at least four Marines and wounding a soldier and a police officer, officials told CBS News.
The shooter also was killed. Two law enforcement sources told CBS News that the shooting suspect was identified as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez.  http://www.cbsnews.com/news/report-police-officer-shot-near-tennessee-army-recruiting-center/
Considering that this is the last day of ramadan, I guess this terrorist attack is not surprising.
And I am sure the Obama administration and Senile Harry Reid will just call this a "work place incident", just like they did for the Fort Hood terrorist attack.

Obama Visits Future Home

Image result for image of obama at prison
From Fox News: From the White House to the big house, President Obama made an unprecedented presidential visit to a federal prison Thursday as part of his push for changes to the criminal justice system. 
The president, after issuing dozens of commutations and tackling the subject during an NAACP address earlier this week, toured the El Reno Federal Correctional Institution, a medium-security prison for male offenders near Oklahoma City.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/07/16/obama-making-1st-visit-by-sitting-president-to-federal-prison/
Someone, either the president or his staff, are completely tone deaf.
Don't they realize the fun people will have with this story?  How late night shows will make fun of this?  How talk show hosts will lampoon him and bloggers will make fun of this?
Over half the country dislike or hate Obama and many of us, and me included, think he deserves to be behind bars at a maximum security prison.
It does make me wonder if he will issue a pardon for himself and others in his administration just before he leaves office.

ESPN Gives Courage Award To Killer

Just disgusting.
From CBS New York: Caitlyn Bruce Jenner accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs on Wednesday night while urging acceptance for others who are transgender.
She He received a standing ovation from some of the sporting world’s biggest stars after her 10-minute speech during the annual awards honoring the year’s top athletes and moments....
“Trans people deserve something vital, they deserve your respect,” she said. “From that respect comes a more compassionate community.”...
“If you want to call me names, make jokes and doubt my intentions, go ahead because the reality is I can take it,” she he said.  http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2015/07/16/caitlyn-jenner-espys-speech/
First, a transgendered person does not deserve our respect- they need to earn it.  Just because you change your sex does not automatically qualify you to be respected by others.
And Bruce Jenner says you can call him names.  OK Bruce, you are a killer.  You killed your neighbor because you were not paying attention when you plowed in to her (a real her), which caused her to go into traffic and she was killed when her car was hit by a Hummer.
You are 100% responsible for her death.  And not once, in your speech, did you mention the victim's name or apologize to her family.
Bruce, you are disgusting and you are an unrepentant killer.

Time For Tiger Woods To Retire

Tiger Woods just keeps embarrassing himself.
Today, at the British Open, a tournament he has won 3 times, he shot an opening round of +4.  While that is a good score for the average duffer who plays gold 1-2 times a month, as a professional golfer, it is a disaster.
Dustin Johnson leads the British Open with a score of -7, which means Woods is 11 strokes behind Johnson.  Currently, Woods is in 143rd place and is ahead of only 9 other players, with 156 players entered.
Ever since his former wife found out what a cheater he was and attacked him with a golf club, Woods has lost his way on the golf course.  He has not won a major tournament(British, PGA, Masters and U.S. Open) since 2008 and these are the tournaments he lives for.
It's time for Woods to retire from golf with what little golfing respect he has left.

Scott Walker beats Liberals, democrats again

From jsonline, Milwaukee: Dealing Gov. Scott Walker a victory just as his presidential camapaign gets underway, the Wisconsin Supreme Court in a sweeping decision Thursday ruled the governor's campaign and conservative groups had not violated campaign finance laws in recall elections in 2011 and 2012.
The ruling means the end of the investigation, which has been stalled for 18 months after a lower court judge determined no laws were violated even if Walker's campaign and the groups had worked together as prosecutors believe.....
Writing for the majority, Justice Michael Gableman found a key section of Wisconsin's campaign finance law is "unconstitutionally overbroad and vague" and that the activities prosecutors had investigated were not illegal. He ordered prosecutors to return all records they seized and destory any copies they made of them.
"It is utterly clear that the special prosecutor has employed theories of law that do not exist in order to investigate citizens who were wholly innocent of any wrongdoing," Gableman wrote.
Calling those who challenged the probe "brave individuals," Gableman wrote that their litigation gave "this court with an opportunity to re-endorse its commitment to upholding the fundamental right of each and every citizen to engage in lawful political activity and to do so free from the fear of the tyrannical retribution of arbitrary or capricious governmental prosecution. Let one point be clear: our conclusion today ends this unconstitutional John Doe investigation."...
A spokeswoman for Walker's presidential campaign applauded the ruling.
"Today's ruling confirmed no laws were broken, a ruling that was previously stated by both a state and federal judge," AshLee Strong said in a statement. "It is time to move past this unwarranted investigation that has cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars."...
Walker and other Republicans have insisted the probe is a political witch hunt — claims prosecutors deny.
Those in the majority raised questions about the way the probe was conducted, with Gableman writing the search warrants were executed as "pre-dawn, armed, paramilitary-style raids" and Justice David Prosser writing in a concurrence that the subpoenas were "so extensive that they make the fruits of the legendary Watergate break-in look insignificant by comparison."
In all, 29 organizations and individauls received subpoenas seeking millions of documents. Some of the material seized was "wholly irrelevant information, such as retirement income statements, personal financial account information, personal letters, and family photos," Gableman wrote.
Todd Graves, an attorney for O'Keefe and the club, praised the ruling and said in a statement Chisholm and the accountability board until now "acted like playground bullies without fear of restraint from the courts."
"The government acted as if key protections in our nation's Bill of Rights simply did not apply," Graves said in his statement. "They used search warrants to conduct pre-dawn raids on families and secretly obtained millions of personal emails from numerous parties, including individuals who still do not know they were targeted. They counted on a veil of secrecy to assault the fundamental liberties of our clients and commit taxpayer funds for an outrageous misuse of their offices and the law."
Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel — who had no role in the investigation — issued a statement that said the ruling "leaves no doubt that the John Doe investigation is over."
"This closes a divisive chapter in Wisconsin history, and the assertive recognition of First Amendment rights by the Wisconsin Supreme Court protects free speech for all Wisconsinites," his statement said.
http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/wisconsin-supreme-court-ends-john-doe-probe-into-scott-walkers-campaign-b99535414z1-315784501.html
This was a bogus investigation from the beginning and it was a huge political witch hunt that targeted walker.
The democrats/liberals running the investigation tried to use the criminal courts to get to Walker because they simple hate the man and they fear him as a presidential candidate.
This is how low and evil the Democrats/liberals have become- they are willing to convict and ruin a person's life just because they don't like their politics.  It is disgusting and evil and if you believe in an after life, they will rot in hell for their actions.

Shooting At Naval Building In Chattanooga Update: 4 Marines Killed

Update:
From the Chattanooga Free Times Press: Four soldiers were killed in two attacks on military centers in separate parts of Chattanooga by a unknown gunman, leading to lockdowns at local hospitals as well as the Army Recruiting Center on Lee highway as well as the Naval and Marine Reserve Center at the Chattanooga Riverpark, where shots were fired. 
Four marines were killed and one police officer were shot in the attacks, according to multiple sources. 
One shooter is dead, according to reports, and police say this is no longer an active shooting situation. 
Witnesses at both sites reported hearing multiple gunshots in each case, with the bulk of the firing happing at the Amnicola Highway location. Shortly after the shooting, blue markers littered the ground outside the recruiting station on Lee Highway where shots were fired, and police completely blocked off Amnicola Highway to traffic. 
There has been a shooting at a Naval recruitment building in Chattanooga, TN.
There are not many details, but listening to scanner traffic, they are sending rehab units to the scene via the fire departments.
http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/local/story/2015/jul/16/breaking-shots-fired-tennessee-riverpark-chattanooga/314944/
From Chattanooga.com:
Chattanooga Police and emergency vehicles flocked to Amnicola Highway around 11 a.m. after reports of an "active shooter."  A police officer has been reported shot. 
A 911 call said there were "shots fired," and bystanders reported hearing multiple shots.
Mayor Andy Berke said one police officer and a shooting suspect were down.  Mayor Berke tweeted "Horrific incident in our community. We will release details as they are confirmed. Prayers to all those affected."
Numerous ambulances and emergency vehicles went to the scene.   Additional ambulances were still going to the scene as late as 11:40 a.m.
Chattanooga State Community College nearby was on lockdown.
Amnicola Highway was blocked in both directions.  http://www.chattanoogan.com/2015/7/16/304290/Police-Emergency-Vehicles-Flock-To.aspx

Numerous schools, a hospital and many businesses are on lock down.
The local TV station stated that the Navy said the shooting was at one of it's recruiting buildings but not sure if it was directly in their office.
The FBI is already involved, leading me and only me, to think this may be an act of terrorism.
Update: The Chattanooga fire department just ordered all their fire stations to close their doors and lock all the entrances.
This tells me that there is stilla  shooter out there.
Also, the entrances to Erlanger Hospital, near the shooting scene are being guarded by heavily armed police offers.
Update: Fox News is reporting that there are 2 shooting locations, possibly both at military installations/recruiting centers.
The cops might be looking for a white male driving a silver Mustang.
Many State government buildings in Nashville have also been placed on lockdown.
Update The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that 4 Naval recruiters and 1 officer has been shot.
"I just heard all the shooting," said Fred Wright, a counter salesman at Carquest Auto Parts downhill from the US Army Recruiting Office at the U.S. Army Recruiting Office at 6219 Lee Hwy.
Then Wright saw recruiting office personnel come running.
"All of them starting running through the brush and the briars," Wright said. "One of them was yelling, 'Call 911, someone's shooting at us.'"
"Three of them came in here, and we called 911," Wright said.

http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/local/story/2015/jul/16/breaking-shots-fired-tennessee-riverpark-chattanooga/314944/
Some reports now say that the shooter is dead and that there is no active shooter.  Hopefully that is true but just a few minutes ago, all Chattanooga fire stations were told to lock their doors and close all bay doors.
WRCB reports the police officer shot is in stable condition.
The local blood bank is putting out requests for emergency blood donations.
Picture outside Naval recruitment center:  There are about 15 bullet casings on the ground.

Fox News reports the shooter is dead.
Fox News just reported that the 4 Marines who were shot have now died.
RIP to the Marines and prayers to the families, friends and for the Marine corp.
I will update as needed.

Will This Be Treated As A Hate crime?

Image result for picture of a amish farmer
I wonder when the FBI will become involved in this case.
From the Wisconsin Rapids Tribune: Wood County and state authorities believe someone might have poisoned a well and crops on an Amish farm.
A state Department of Natural Resources warden contacted the Wood County Sheriff's Department on July 7 about the possible poisoning in the 7700 block of Highway 186 in Arpin, said Sheriff's Capt. Shawn Becker.
An Amish farmer first noticed something was wrong when some of the crops began dying in his garden, Becker said. When he began harvesting food, the problem was worse and he notified authorities something was wrong.
In addition to the crops, authorities found evidence that a private well on the property was contaminated, Becker said. Officials think both the well and crops could have been poisoned, he said.
None of the food was sold to the public, and the incident appears to be an isolated one, Becker said.
The investigation could lead to possible criminal charges.  http://www.wisconsinrapidstribune.com/story/news/local/2015/07/15/farm-poisoning/30215103/
So, when will the Fed's be involved to see if the farmer civil rights were violated?
Hahaha: the farmer is too white and conservative to be considered to be a victim according to the Feds.

Another Reason Why Walker Will Be A Great President

From jsonline, Milwaukee:  Gov. Scott Walker's health secretary sued federal officials Tuesday in an attempt to allow the state to screen people with drug tests if they seek food stamps.
The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Milwaukee, came two days after the Republican governor signed a budget including the drug testing provision and one day after he announced he was running for president.
Federal officials had been expected to block the move, and the lawsuit is an attempt to pre-empt such an order and get a federal judge to allow the program to go forward.
Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel filed the lawsuit on behalf of the state and Kitty Rhoades, Walker's health secretary. He brought it against U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and other federal officials responsible for running the nutrition program known as FoodShare in Wisconsin.
The case will be heard by U.S. District Judge Charles Clevert.
In a statement, Walker said testing people for drugs was part of a "compassionate approach to ensuring individuals on certain public assistance programs are workforce ready."
"Our most recent budget builds on our record of enacting big, bold entitlement reforms to restore programs to their original purpose — a safety net, not a hammock," his statement said. "We are focused on helping people move from government dependence to independence because we want people to know the dignity that comes from work."  http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/scott-walker-administration-sues-feds-to-allow-food-stamp-drug-tests-b99538108z1-315091711.html
I have no problems with Wisconsin drug testing people receiving Food stamps.
I am pretty sure that if you are using crack, meth or pot, your chances of getting off public assistance, especially food stamps is pretty much, no chance in hell.
If a person tests positive, then they should seek treatment and if they refuse to do this or are caught a 2nd time using drugs while on Food stamps, should be suspended for at least 6 months.  A 3rd drug test, they are out for a full year and a 4th time, they are done with Food stamps forever.
Just another reason why Scott Walker would make a great president.
