Soccer Scandal

Image result for picture of a soccer ball
From The NY Times: Swiss authorities conducted an extraordinary early-morning operation here Wednesday to arrest several top soccer officials and extradite them to the United States on federal corruption charges.
As leaders of FIFA, soccer’s global governing body, gathered for their annual meeting, more than a dozen plain-clothed Swiss law enforcement officials arrived unannounced at the Baur au Lac hotel, an elegant five-star property with views of the Alps and Lake Zurich. They went to the front desk to get keys and proceeded upstairs to the rooms.
The arrests were carried out peacefully, with at least two men being ushered out of the hotel without handcuffs. One FIFA official, Eduardo Li of Costa Rica, was led by the authorities from his room to a side-door exit of the hotel. He was allowed to bring his luggage, which was adorned with FIFA logos.
The charges allege widespread corruption in FIFA over the past two decades, involving bids for World Cups as well as marketing and broadcast deals, according to three law enforcement officials with direct knowledge of the case. The charges include wire fraud, racketeering and money laundering, and officials said they targeted members of FIFA’s powerful executive committee, which wields enormous power and does its business largely in secret.  http://mobile.nytimes.com/2015/05/27/sports/soccer/fifa-officials-face-corruption-charges-in-us.html?_r=0
FIFa is corrupt but I just wonder if these charges will stick as their offices are not in the US and quite frankly, most people in the U.S. couldn't care less about soccer.
And why hasn't other countries stepped forward?
Yes, it will be hard to prove, but if they can, then it might help get the corruption out of soccer.

Mohave County: Conservative Big Government?

Image result for picture of mohave county courthouse
(Mohave County Courthouse)
Mohave county, AZ. is Arizona's most conservative county, which makes it one of the most conservative county in the country.
But Mohave County is also home to big government services.
For example, We have a Public Defender, Legal Defender and Indigent Defense Services, all of which deal with poor criminal clients.  Now, that's not say I want the poor to receive no legal services if they are accused of a crime (well, actually I don't, but constitutionally, not much I can do).
With few exceptions, all the Fire Departments in Mohave County have full time or at least some full time firefighters, when in most cases, volunteer fire departments would be sufficient.  Volunteers could mostly staff Golden Valley, Pinion Pines, Northern Arizona, Dolan Spring and surrounding areas(Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District ),  Fort Mojave Mesa Fire Department, Golden Shores and the Yucca Fire department, which has less than a thousand people living in and around their district has less than 200 calls a year.  There is no need for a full time fire dept. there.
The City of Kingman just passed a law outlawing smoking in a car when kids are present.  So much for personal responsibility and puts the government inside our cars.  This law is the first in Arizona and is a law liberals love.
Conservatives love law enforcement but pay their police officers horribly along with firefighters, teachers and many other public service employees.  Some agencies pay their employees so little that these employees have had to go on food stamps and/or other government welfare.  These employees should not huge amounts of money but they shouldn't have to receive government welfare either.
The Golden Valley Fire dept. is trying to kick out the private ambulance service, RiverView, which is run out of the local Kingman hospital because the fire department wants to steal the revenue from the ambulance company.  The fire dept. also laughably says that they won't have to hire additional firefighters to staff the ambulances and that their budget will barely increase.  Smaller government?  Not in Golden Valley.
The County, which has an old but solid courthouse is going to be building a brand new courthouse for about $20,000,000 instead of refurbishing the old courthouse for about half the cost.
So, these are just some of the things that makes you wonder just how conservative Mohave County is, when it is one of the most conservative counties in the country.

he list can go on and on.
So, thank you for all those who serve in the military and to those who have supported them throughout the years.

Is Wile E. Coyte A Customer?

From the Kingman Daily Miner: 2015 will be remembered as the year Kingman failed to celebrate Independence Day - unless a college student with lifelong ties to the city can pull off a miracle....
Walsh, however, has been working with the city, the motorsports park and Acme Fireworks, which said it could put on the show on short notice.  http://kdminer.com/main.asp?SectionID=1&SubSectionID=797&ArticleID=66058

The Start of Summer: The Great Debate

Image result for picture of bbq
Memorial Day begins the unofficial start of school and for me, it starts, once again, the great debate:
For the BBQ?
Me, I choose charcoal.  Yes, the charcoal probably will give me cancer and usually burns my food.
But to me, charcoal tastes the best.
And those who use propane?  Why?
It's the same as cooking on the stove except you are cooking outside instead of outside.
So, what say you?
Propane or Charcoal?

I Know How she feels

From Madison.com:
Eighth grade math teacher Stephanie Bush says she knew last fall, just weeks into the school year, that things could get dicey under a new discipline code for Madison’s public schools.
“Usually the first quarter is a honeymoon period when students are excited to be in school and behaviors are good. So when things were already deteriorating rapidly, it was a sign to me that this was not going in a good direction,” said Bush, 50, who has taught at Jefferson Middle School on Madison’s west side her whole career.
It wasn’t a specific incident, but the piling on of several serious incidents so early in the school year that troubled her.
“I’m seeing behaviors on a regular basis that I haven’t seen in 20 years of teaching,” Bush said. Some of this alarming conduct included students swearing at teachers, kicking trash cans, walking out of class, and kids wandering the hallways and in and out of classrooms, she said.
The behavior policy, implemented at the start of this school year, requires teachers to ask for outside help if they can’t control a misbehaving student. But Bush says such calls for help often go unanswered by overwhelmed support staff, who are supposed to walk an out-of-control student out of the classroom and “intervene” to get a sense of the causes of the misbehavior.
“We call and no one comes," she said. "Teachers have stopped calling.”
Read more: http://host.madison.com/news/local/writers/pat_schneider/madison-middle-school-teacher-says-discipline-policy-problems-forced-her/article_0bea9488-99d5-5cf2-beae-edf40d09523d.html#ixzz3b84R9iBM
This year, I taught at an elementary school for the first time in my 19 year teaching career.
To say I was shocked at the behaviors I saw at our school would be an extreme understatement.
I worked with 4th ad 5th grade students.  I saw some of the most horrible behaving kids, kids so bad that I will be seeing their names in the newspaper in about 8 years in the felony news section of the newspaper.
These bad students were completely disrespectful to the adult staff, ranging from aides, to teachers and principals.  They didn't care because there was little consequences at school and fewer consequences at home.
There were some good kids, of course, but the majority of kids were just bad and throughout the entire school year.  Some kids started good and ended bad, others were just plain bad.  And it wasn't race, the vast of majority of the kids are white.
Now, may of the kids had bad parents.  When the parents came to pick up the kids, it looked like half the parents were drug users, though that may not be fair, it may actually be 3/4 of them.  And for the other 1/4th, the grandparents or others were guardians.
I talked to numerous teachers at the school I was at and so many have said that this was the worst year they have ever had and this also goes to teachers at other schools I talked with.
So, I feel this teachers pain.  It's frustrating when the kids act bad and there is no support from the administration or the district office.
Man, I fear for the future.

Black Lives Matter: not

From the Chicago Sun Times: A 4-year-old South Side girl whose mother was about to move her family to Minneapolis to escape the violence in Chicago was “doing fine” a day after being shot in the head in a drive-by shooting outside a prom party Friday night in West Englewood, her grandfather said Saturday night.
“She wakes up, and … she knows who’s in the room,” said Marvin Gresham, little Jacele Johnson’s grandfather. “She looks at you, and she moves.
“We’re being told that she’s stable and her vitals are looking really good,” he said. “We’re just hoping for her to be all right.”
Jacele had no swelling in the brain, according to her aunt, Marcella Gresham — a good sign, but she remained at the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, where she underwent surgery.  http://chicago.suntimes.com/news-chicago/7/71/629732/girl-among-two-shot-west-Englewood
The fools and tools who protest cops who kill blacks, even when justified, will not say anything about innocent kids who are shot by fellow black thugs.
What a bunch of idiots, especially the big dummy in the White House.

Ireland Becomes More Gay

Ireland has decided to become the first country to vote for gay marriage.
From the NY Daily News: Irish voters backed a constitutional amendment legalizing gay marriage — the world’s first national vote on the issue — by an almost 2-to-1 margin, officials declared Saturday.
The historically conservative Catholic country voted 62.1% in favor of the amendment. The final tally was 1.2 million for the measure and about 700,000 opposing it.
“We’re the first country in the world to enshrine marriage equality in our constitution and do so by popular mandate,” said Leo Varadkar, a cabinet minister who came out as gay at the beginning of the effort to amend the country’s constitution. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/world/ireland-voted-resoundingly-legalize-gay-marriage-article-1.2233085
I would not have voted for the amendment based on my personal views but I prefer a country or state vote for gay marriage rather than a bunch old judges who make the decision.
So, if Ireland votes for gay marriage, I have no real problems with it.
And I will still enjoy my Irish music.

Cop Aquitted Of Killing Black Thugs: Updated

Once again, more evidence that if you run from the cops, especially for 20 miles, the chances of you dying increase significantly.
From the Cleveland Plain Dealer: A judge ruled Saturday morning that Cleveland police officer Michael Brelo is not guilty of two charges of voluntary manslaughter in connection with the Nov. 29, 2012 police chase and shooting that ended in the deaths of two people.
Cuyahoga Common Pleas Judge John P. O'Donnell said that while Brelo did fire lethal shots at Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, other officers did as well.
O'Donnell also concluded that Brelo was not guilty of the lesser included offense of felonious assault because he was legally justified in his use of deadly force.
Brelo, 31, was one of more than 100 police officers to participate in a 22-minute police chase, and one of 13 who shot at a 1979 Chevy Malibu. The shooting ended in the deaths of the driver, Russell and the passenger, Williams.
But defense attorneys said Brelo had reason to fear for his life, and was justified in his use of deadly force because he and other officers believed that Russell and Williams had a gun and had fired shots. They also argued that if the 12 other police officers who fired shots were justified in their use of force, so was Brelo.  http://www.cleveland.com/court-justice/index.ssf/2015/05/brelo_verdict.html
And of course, the attention seeking whores will protest for the TV stations and other media and some may even riot.
But once again if you don't run from the cops, 99.999% of the time or more, you are going to live through the ordeal.
Update: Unlike the media and all the tools and fools, I read the judges decision.
If you read the media, this two innocent souls were just minding their business when the cops opened fired on them.
Umm, nope, that's not what happened.
The thugs were stopped by a cop for an illegal turn and for possible drug transactions but he was going to let them go but before he did, they drove off from him.  The cop never reported this.
Then these thugs drove past the police building at a high rate of speed (which shows that these thugs were not very bright who speeds right by the main police station in town?) and sound like a gun shot rang out, though it possibly turned out to be a backfire of the engine.
Then the thugs decided to flee from the cops who were chasing them, for 22 minutes.  They drove recklessly, including driving down the sidewalk by a busy pizza shop at around 10:30 at night.
The thugs then ended up by a school and drove into a parking lot and onto a field.  They tried to run 1 cop over, hit another cop car and was driving towards officer Brelo.  Several cops had already fired their weapons at the car and the thugs still refused to stop.
Finally the car came to a stop and there was still movement in the car and the cops finally took these thugs out of the gene pool forever.
So, these "innocent" thugs were already given 1 chance by the cop who let them go, they speeded past a police station with a defective car and then drove recklessly and without care through the streets of Cleveland of other cities before they tried to run over the cops, who had a legitimate fear for their lives.
It was not the cops fault the thugs are dead, it is 100% the fault of the thugs- they caused their own death.

Funny Of The Day

Image result for funny picture of hillary clinton
From Common Sense Evaluation:
Barack Hussein Obama, Hilary Clinton, the Pope and a boy scout are on a plane. The plane is about to crash when they realize there are only 3 parachutes. The first passenger, President Obama said “I am the president of the United States, as much as it will haunt me for the rest of my life, I must insist I take a parachute. I have a great responsibility, being the leader of nearly 300 million people and the strongest military in the world.” The others agree and the president grabs a bag and jumps out. The second passenger, Hillary Clinton, said “I am the future first female President of the United States, and I am the smartest woman in the world. I will be everything Obama was not and in that manner set a new path for all women in this world. I demand that I take one of the parachutes.” The boy scout hands her a bag and she jumps out. The third passenger, the Pope, says to the fourth passenger, a 10-year old boy scout “I am old and frail and I don’t have many years left, so as a Christian gesture and good deed, I will sacrifice my life and let you take the last parachute.” The boy scout said “It’s okay!” “No, my dear boy. I must insist. I made my peace with God many, many years ago,” explains the Pope. “Dying will be like going home for me.” “No, really it’s okay,” says the boy. “My son, how can you be so fearless in the face of death? You are but a young boy,” asks the Pope. The boy scout holds up two bags. “There’s two parachutes left. I gave that annoying bitch my backpack.” - See more at: http://www.commonsenseevaluation.com/#sthash.8JTAjUKj.dpuf


From Fox News: In the long-running campaign by Republican-led states to rein in food stamp abuses and curb the now-$74 billion program, lawmakers are trying a new approach: Restricting what foods can and can't be on a family's grocery list. 
The move is controversial, with critics accusing GOP lawmakers of playing food police to further burden people already struggling. 
“It’s not meant to shame anyone or be punitive," Wisconsin state Rep. Robert Brooks said. 
Brooks is pushing a bill -- which last week cleared the state Assembly -- limiting what foods could be purchased under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. It's the latest effort by lawmakers to put together an approved menu for food stamp users, following a bill in Missouri to restrict benefits from being used for energy drinks, seafood, steak and other items. 
The catch is any state would need a federal waiver to make these kinds of changes to the federal program, and the odds of that being granted seem slim. 
“It would make sense for the federal government to adopt new guidelines but they don’t,” Brooks told FoxNews.com. Still, he said, "it’s important for us to drive the conversation."   http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/05/21/states-food-stamp-purchases/?intcmp=latestnews
Women Infant and Children (WIC) restrict the type and amount of food for those who are on it,
Michelle Obama and the liberals demand that school children demand to fed a certain way if the school districts want to be reimbursed for feeding poor children.
So, why not demand that those on food stamps be forced to only buy certain items and not be allowed to buy other items.
After all, don't we want those on food stamps be healthy, just like those on WIC and in the Federal school lunch program?

Obama Now Shows He Is Retarded

Image result for picture of obama with dunce cap
From the Washington Post: President Obama warned Wednesday that climate change is a growing and "serious threat" to national security, tying severe weather to the rise of the extremist group Boko Haram in Nigeria and the civil war in Syria.
In his latest bid to turn up political pressure on Republicans over the environment, Obama challenged 218 newly commissioned officers at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy to take the threats of climate as seriously as they would a cutter in peril on the seas.
In his remarks here, Obama tied droughts and crop damage from severe weather to the rise of Boko Haram, which has terrorized civilians in Nigeria, and to the bloody civil war in Syria. He cast controlling climate change as a "key pillar of American global leadership" and called it "a core element of our diplomacy."  http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2015/05/20/in-coast-guard-commencement-obama-to-link-climate-change-to-national-security/
As Mark Levin points out, that the Nazi's in Germany and Japan and their brutal actions in WWII was due to climate change.
And I might add, North Korea and their brutal regime can blame their actions on Climate change.
And how about other atrocities, like in WWI, most wars, along with war criminals Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Stalin and other thug world terror leaders, did they commit their crimes against because of climate change?
Apparently Obama shows how stupid he is when doesn't blame muslim extremism or sharia law or radical mulsim leaders or country leaders who constantly violate the rights of their citizens.
I never thought Obama was the smartest person in the room, despite the belief he thinks he is, now I think there is also some mental retardation within that idiot's brain.

Black Thug Kills White Female Cop: What Will Black Racists Do?

From the Omaha News World:
An Omaha police officer and a suspect involved in a shootout Wednesday have died.
Kerrie Orozco, 29, a gang unit officer, was serving a warrant on the Metro Area Fugitive Task Force when she was shot.
Omaha police had responded to a “Help an officer” call at 30th Street and Martin Avenue. 
Officers were serving a felony arrest warrant about 12:55 p.m., said Deputy Police Chief Dave Baker. During the process of serving the warrant, shots were fired, he said. 
Orozco and the suspect, Marcus D. Wheeler, 26, were taken to the Creighton hospital in extremely critical condition, with CPR in progress.
"In spite of our most valiant efforts and aggressive care," Orozco and Wheeler were unable to be resuscitated, said trauma surgeon Dr. Michel Wagner.
At a press conference at the hospital, Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said, "This is a somber day for the city of Omaha, Omaha police officers especially, and the entire law enforcement community." He said Orozco was a seven-year veteran of the department and had worked in the gang unit since March 2012.  http://www.omaha.com/news/metro/this-is-a-somber-day-for-omaha-police-officer-dies/article_1da4d4cc-ff1b-11e4-913c-a7885fa50422.html
So, you have a black thug who shoots a white female officer.
Will racist Obama send anyone from the White House to this police officers funeral, like he has done for Black thugs?
Will he blame the thug and black culture just like Obama blames the police and police culture?
Will these fools, tools, racist and rioters say a prayer for the cop or maybe even hold a rally to support her family?
I'm not holding my breath.

Illegal Kills Fireman, Wife

From Fire Rescue 1:  A Houston man has been charged with intoxication manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid following a collision on U.S. 59 that killed a Splendora firefighter and his wife as well as injured their two young daughters.
Alejandro Guzman-Lopez, 23, a laborer living in Houston, was held without bail Monday on these charges because he's not a legal resident and could flee, Montgomery County prosecutor Tyler Dunman said.
The charges followed the death Sunday night of firefighter Brad Frazier, and his wife, Shea, both 21 of Splendora. The couple's two daughters, a 2-year-old and 5-week-old infant, were treated for their injuries at a Houston hospital and then released to relatives....
Guzman-Lopez, who received only minor injuries, fled from his wrecked vehicle after it also came to a stop. However, another motorist who had stopped to help ran after him, tackling him about 200 yards from the scene of the wreck.
"This good Samaritan held the suspect until investigators arrived to take him into custody," Dunman said.  http://www.firerescue1.com/fire-chief/articles/2173861-Driver-charged-in-death-of-Texas-firefighter-wife
First the illegal alien is not a Houston man- he is from an unknown country where he is a resident of.
2nd, Obama and liberals say that these illegals are only hard working innocent people and yet there is case after case of illegals committing crimes (besides the obvious of being here illegally) and often violent crime.
And yet, apparently, the death of the firefighter and his wife must be an acceptable risk to the Obamas of the United States because after all, they don't go after these illegals.

Strange Going On's In Vegas, Kingman

Last Friday, I was leaving Las Vegas around 9:00 at night when I pulled into a Rebel gas station in Boulder City, just outside of Las Vegas.
In came ina bus, kind of like a tourist bus that we all see in Vegas, but this one was different.
The bus writing was all in Spanish and it had a Mexican license plate on it.  Out popped out about 40 Hispanic men, ranging in age from about early 20's to may late 40's.  None spoke English and there were no females outside.  Out of the 40 or so, maybe 3 actually spent money at the gas station, while the rest either went to the rest room our just waited outside.
Ok, I thought, strange but there may have been some kind of explanation:
45 Hispanic males on a tourist bus.
Huge bachelor party.
A bunch of gay Hispanic men leaving Las Vegas after some fun.
But I talked to a woman in Kingman, who saw the same thing at a Kingman gas station, which was on Hwy 93, the road heading north to Las Vegas.
This time 2 Mexican buses stopped at the gas station and about 80 or so male Hispanic males piled off and either went to the bathroom or made eyes, ogling my woman friend.
Apparently, these Mexican buses don't have bathrooms.
But this is something I have not seen previously or anybody I have talked to.
So, why are these Mexican buses bringing scores of Hispanic males to the Las Vegas area?  Where are these men staying?  Are they getting a fair wage, assuming they are laborers?  Who is employing them?  are they paying taxes on their earnings?  Do they have the necessary paperwork to even visit the United States, like a passport?  Are they here on some kind of Obama plan?
I honestly don't know, but maybe some news reporter can find out what is going on. (And I know some read this blog)

Liberal Cry Babies

From Jsonline: Three Wisconsin Supreme Court justices skipped ceremonies Monday to swear in recent Marquette University Law School graduates, amid a bitter dispute over who should be in charge of the state's high court.
It was the first time the court was to meet as a group since conservatives who control the court voted to make Patience Roggensack chief justice. Shirley Abrahamson, who had held the job for 19 years, has contended she remains chief justice and has sued over the issue in federal court in Madison.
U.S. District Judge James Peterson, who is hearing that case, declined to issue an order Friday allowing Abrahamson to serve as chief justice while she pursues her lawsuit, and signaled she would have a difficult time ultimately winning.
Monday's ceremonies showed relationships on the court remain strained. Roggensack has said repairing the court's reputation is a top priority.
Apparently boycotting Monday's event were Abrahamson and Justices Ann Walsh Bradley and N. Patrick Crooks. Those are the three justices who did not vote for Roggensack as chief justice and contended the email vote putting her in place was improperly conducted.
Abrahamson and Bradley are the court's liberals. Crooks is a swing vote who has sharply criticized Abrahamsonfor her lawsuit but also said there should be a transition plan to transfer power to a new chief justice. Crooks had hoped to follow Abrahamson as chief justice.
Supporting Roggensack are her three fellow conservatives on the court — Justices Michael Gableman, David Prosser and Annette Ziegler.
Those four marched Monday into a packed Capitol hearing room to admit the new graduates into the state bar. Roggensack sat in the middle seat that Abrahamson had occupied for nearly two decades. The seats on either side of Roggensack — those for Abrahamson and Bradley — were vacant, as was the one for Crooks.  http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/three-justices-apparently-boycott-swearing-in-of-marquette-law-grads-b99502308z1-304119741.html
So, these three liberals (Crooks is a liberal wanna be) didn't geet their way with Wisconsin voters or a Federal judge, so they are going to throw a temper tantrum cry wee wee wee all way to their liberal home.

They May Not Like The Message But He's Right

From Fox News: A Duke University professor was defiant after the school last week condemned his "noxious" and "offensive" words in a letter published in The New York Times in which he compared African-Americans unfavorably to Asian-Americans.
The school's rebuke came after a student backlash against Political Science Professor Jerry Hough, 80, whose May 9 letter sought to address racism and the Baltimore riots. Hough said African-Americans don't try to integrate into society, while Asians “worked doubly hard” to overcome racism instead of blaming it.
Every Asian student has a very simple old American first name that symbolizes their desire for integration,” he wrote on May 10. “Virtually every black has a strange new name that symbolizes their lack of desire for integration.”
Duke students and faculty blasted Hough last week, and the school told The News & Observer of Raleigh that he was placed on leave and that 2016 will be his last year at the school.
“The comments were noxious, offensive, and have no place in civil discourse,” said Duke spokesman Michael Schoenfeld. “Duke University has a deeply held commitment to inclusiveness grounded in respect for all, and we encourage our community to speak out when they feel that those ideals are challenged or undermined, as they were in this case.”
But Hough, in an e-mail to an ABC affiliate, said political correctness is getting in the way of thoughtful and frank debate.
“I am strongly against the obsession with ‘sensitivity,'" Hough wrote. "The more we have emphasized sensitivity in recent years, the worse race relations have become. I think that is not an accident. I know that the 60 years since the Montgomery bus boycott is a long time, and things must be changed. The Japanese and other Asians did not obsess with the concentration camps and the fact they were linked with blacks as ‘colored.’"
Hough even played the "Coach K" card, referencing beloved.  http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/05/19/duke-professor-responds-to-criticism-about-online-comments-made-regarding/
The professor is right.
The Japanese and most Asians were worse than Blacks around WWII and probably through the Korean and Vietnam War.
However, the Asians, both who lived here and who immigrated here have worked hard, both in their education and in their jobs.  They have advanced so far that now, Asians are now discriminated against, especially in supposedly tolerant California, when it comes to college admissions.
Blacks, on the other hand, have turned the inner cities into war zones, their education stinks, they live off the government and expect people to cater to them.
Of course, those are generalizations.  Not all Asians are perfect- some are in gangs and there are some on welfare.
And not all Blacks in the inner city are bad- some are hard working and do their best despite their horrible education in those liberal cities and some are not on government assistance or if they are on government assistance, some do get off.
But the professor is right, Asians have outpaced Blacks in general significantly in the past 70 years or so in their accomplishments and education.

Biker Fight Leaves 9 Dead

I'm pretty sure the cops didn't rush in to break up a fight between a bunch of biker thugs, as long as innocents were not in any danger.
From The Waco Tribune: Police now believe there were five gangs involved in Sunday’s deadly shootout at Twin Peaks in Central Texas Marketplace, and some were allied with one another.
Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said police attempted to contact Twin Peaks’ corporate headquarters after the shooting, but said he is unsure of the content of that conversation.
Officials are continuing to comb the crime scene as of about 7:30 p.m. and weapons and even several dead bodies remain in the parking lot.
In downtown Waco, about 100 or more people were questioned at the Waco Convention Center by law enforcement authorities, said Senior Department of Public Safety Trooper D.L. Wilson.
Officials had also closed off several streets downtown, including the bridges spanning the Brazos River. Reports were trickling in Sunday evening of various restaurants and bars that were closing early because of the potential for more violence in the city.
Sunday evening, Twin Peaks tweeted: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and victims of the tragedy at franchise partner’s restaurant in Waco.”
Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said part of the altercation that preceded Sunday’s biker gang shooting at Twin Peaks started in a restroom, spilled into bar, then into the parking lot.
At least two of the gangs were trying to do some recruiting in the area Sunday, and Twin Peaks was a known place for that kind of activity, Swanton said. Multiple law enforcement sources confirmed that the Bandidos and Cossacks biker gangs were at the center of the incident.
“In 34 years of law enforcement, this is the most violent crime scene I have ever been involved in,” Swanton said.
“There is blood everywhere. We will probably approach the number of 100 weapons.”
The cops also said that a bunch of bikers headed towards Waco and they were arrested, with weapons on them.  For the cops, it was like shooting fish in a barrel- pull over every motorcycle riding gang looking thug and chances are they found some weapons and the thugs got arrested.
So, 9 thugs dead and not a huge loss to the DNA pool.

The Growing Stephanopoulos Scandal

From USA Today and Peter Schweizer:
If Stephanopoulos had disclosed his donations to the very foundation I was there to talk about, perhaps it would have put the aggressive posture of his interview with me in context.
But he didn't.
And even though he has apologized to his viewers for keeping this information from both his audience and his bosses, there is much that Stephanopoulos has yet to disclose to his viewers. Indeed, far from being a passive donor who strokes Clinton Foundation checks from afar, a closer look reveals that Stephanopoulos is an ardent and engaged Clinton Foundation advocate.
For example, in his on air apology for this ethical mess, Stephanopoulos did not disclose that in 2006 he was a featured attendee and panel moderator at the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI).
He did not disclose that in 2007, he was a featured attendee at the CGI annual meeting, a gathering also attended by several individuals I report on in Clinton Cash, including mega Clinton Foundation donors Lucas Lundin, Frank Giustra, Frank Holmes, and Carlos Slim — individuals whose involvement with the Clintons I assumed he had invited me on his program to discuss.
Stephanopoulos did not disclose that he was a 2008 panelist at the CGI annual meeting which, once again, featured individuals I report on in the book, such as billionaire Clinton Foundation foreign donor Denis O'Brien.
ABC's most visible news employee did not disclose that in 2009, he served as a panel moderator at CGI's annual meeting, nor did he disclose that in 2010 and 2011, he was an official CGI member.
Stephanopoulos did not disclose that in 2013 and 2014, he and Chelsea Clinton served as CGI contest judges for awards, in part, underwritten by Laureate International Universities — a for-profit education company I report on in the book. Bill Clinton was on its payroll until his recent resignation.
Obviously, Stephanopoulos has favorable feelings toward Hillary and Bill Clinton; he gives their foundation his money and his time. Big-time news media personalities have one thing in very short supply — time. Regular participation in Clinton Foundation events shows a deeper commitment to the Clintons than just the donations.  http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2015/05/16/stephanopoulos-abc-clinton-schweizer-foundation-hillary-column/27436475/
No wonder people turn into Fox News more often than not.  People cannot trust the mainstream media and now, no one could ever trust ABC News.
ABC News needs to fire Stephanopoulos immediately because he won't quit because that is not what liberals do.  if ABC does not fire him, then ABC News has no creditability whatsoever, not that they had much creditability to begin with.

Yep, She Is Just Like Us

From ABC News: Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Bill Clinton reported Friday that they earned more than $30 million combined in speaking fees and book royalties since January 2014, putting them firmly within the upper echelon of American earners as the former secretary of state seeks the White House again.
Clinton's presidential campaign reported the income in a personal financial disclosure report filed with the Federal Election Commission on Friday night. The report, required of every candidate for the White House, showed the couple amassed more than $25 million in speaking fees and Hillary Clinton earned more than $5 million from her 2014 memoir, "Hard Choices."
The earnings put the couple in the top one-tenth of 1 percent of all Americans.
While Clinton has begun her second campaign for president by casting herself as a champion for middle-class voters, she's long drawn criticism from Republicans about the wealth she and Bill Clinton have generated since he left the White House. That includes their ability to command six-figure fees for delivering speeches to corporations and trade groups, which the report lists in detail.  http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/clintons-report-making-25m-speeches-jan-2014-31083330
$30,000,000 in just over a year.
Hillary... just like us... if we were one of the 1%ers.

Of Course, He Was Playing 1st Graders Or The Physically and Ment lly Disabled

From the Chicago Sun Times:
Russian President Vladimir Putin is a scoring machine.
During an exhibition hockey game that clearly was on the up-and-up, Putin scored eight goals in his team’s 18-6 win Saturday in Sochi.
The game featured retired NHL players, and most of the 62-year-old’s goals came on assists from Pavel Bure and Valeri Kamensky.  http://national.suntimes.com/world-news/7/72/1131139/vladimir-putin-russia-eight-goals-hockey
And the opposing team's goalie probably faced 20 years in the gulag if he blocked any of Putin's shots.
Putin seems like he is taking a page out of the fool idiot from North Korea who has a bad hair cut, Kim Jong-Un.

Spoiled Firefighters

From WFTV, Florida:
A Seminole County commissioner who sparked controversy about a grocery run firefighters made is ignoring the backlash that blew up after Channel 9's story aired.
Since WFTV's story aired last week, more than 2,000 people have signed a petition asking Commissioner Brenda Carey to apologize.
The controversy started after Carey texted the Station 36 firefighters' superiors about them going to a Winn-Dixie less than a mile from their fire station while they were on the clock.
Tuesday was the first commission meeting since the story broke last week, but Carey again ignored speaking out about the controversy and instead praised the work of all emergency responders, according to Channel 9's Tim Barber.
Carey told Barber over the phone last week that she was just looking out for taxpayer dollars and the text was not meant as a complaint, although it eventually turned into one.   http://www.wftv.com/news/news/local/seminole-co-commissioner-ignores-firefighter-groce/nmFMp/
This story appeared on Fire Rescue 1, a fire service web site and the spoiled full time firefighters acted like a bunch of spoiled babies, based on some of these comments: http://www.firerescue1.com/weird-news/articles/2167433-Firefighters-grocery-store-run-angers-politician/
If you don't want them going to the store then you provide their meals for them.

How about going to the store before their shift starts?

  • Chris-Trista Long
    Steven Mayfield think about this they work 24 hour shifts. If they shope before shift or after shift that takes away family time for them. They were in their response area so I don't see a problem with them getting groceries

  • Bill Mason · Top Commenter · NWSCC
    Steven Mayfield apparently family time and sleep aren't that important to ya. Firefighters work only (on average) 10 days a month, but that's equal to a month of 60 hour weeks because they run 24 hour shifts. Each house fire is equivalent to running a marathon in energy exertion, and with the current load of medical calls that most departments run, sleeping at the station is almost a thing of the past. Let them go get some grub and don't be an ass.
