More Obama-Gore AGW Draconian Tripe In The Roanoke Times


-
Roanoke Times, 3-27-2017, Pg Va 7:  Opinion:  Virginia can act on climate change; by Becca Summers of Conservation Voters.
Virginia is having: “increasing erratic extreme weather, prolonged drought, elevated asthma rates and incidences of lung disease and regular inundation from sea level risk.”
-
-
Opinion Indeed!  Where did Ms. Summers get all this “stuff”?
Where’s the RT LTE Girl who asks for 50 shades of proof for each statement when I send in an LTE – and where’s her girl-friend down at the Martinsville Bulletin?
They must be on vacation this week!  How convenient!
-
There is no scientific basis that demonstrates significant global temperature and climate changes are driven by man-made CO2.  Period!
There is no cause-effect connection between any of these “items” Ms. Summers has listed to man-made CO2.  Period!
-
Therefore, if any of these “items were to happen”, it would not be  man-kinds fault and implementing CO2-based proposals would be based on misdirected opinions and not scientific facts and are therefore doomed to have any effect on these “items”.

Trump Lies Pale In Comparison To Obama’s Lies

- 
Roanoke Times,  3-26-2017, Pg horiz 1, 6: Trump is our Liar-in-chief by W&L Univ. Professor R.A. Strong
-
-
The Prof. educates us with a summary of highlighted Presidential Lies by:
Eisenhower
Carter
JFK
Clinton
Nixon
Reagan
Bush
-
“All of this brings us to Donald Trump”
-
NO it doesn’t!
All of this brings us to the Biggest Presidential Liar in History – Obama!
-
A charter member of the Pravda-Media, the Wash. Post, even highlighted just a sample of the Obama Lie Legacy; earning him Four Pinocchio’s:
Obama’s biggest whoppers (a very brief selection of the total):
-
How is it that our universities are awash with liberal progressive socialists who are feeding their biased and slanted view of history and current events to our students at exorbitant prices?
-
It’s also of interest that these Liberal Pied Pipers get their “stuff” published on page 1 of the Roanoke Times as if its “news”; not even relegated to the opinion page or better yet the comics!
They’re so fair and balanced – NOT!
-
Yet Another UnHinged Left-Wing Professor

TeaParty Leadership – We Didn’t Run To Govern And We’re Not Going To Govern


-
The TeaParty Leadership Has Multiple Titles and Groups Including today’s members of the House Freedom Caucus.
-
Their refusal today to support the proposed positive and constructive massive changes to ObamaCare is totally consistent with their mantra:
Our Way Or The Highway!
A Replacement Plan worked out with Trump and the Republican Leadership in the House and Senate is now dead and the positive momentum going forward for the Trump-Republican Agenda has been severely damaged.
-
The Winners in all this: Obama, Pelosi, Schumer, The DNC and The Pravda Media!
The Losers: The Republican Team and The American People!
-
Nowhere is the TeaParty Leadership track-record clearer than here in Virginia where they wouldn’t support:
George Allen so we got Tim Kaine.
They wouldn’t support Ed Gillespie so we got Mark Warner again.
They ram-rod’d through their convention an ultra-right-wing team that set a standard for Virginia Republican Political Failure Loosing:
Governor
Lt. Governor
Attorney General
-
The epitome of their takeover of the Republican Party in Virginia is their labeling anyone who disagrees with them as “Republicans In Name Only”:  RINO’s.
-
This election was a major opportunity to get our Country back from the road into the swamp of Socialism and onto the high-road of Reagan style governance to the advantage of all Americans.
-
How sad that a select few (who still haven’t figured out that the Republican Party is The Minority Party in Va. and the US) have derailed the train and are proud of it!
Ever Wonder --- Who are the Real RINO’s?

Pravda-Media Coverage: Fake UVa Rape vs Real Horrific Rape



Roanoke Times, 3-24-2017, Pg 3: small article in small print with small title: "teen says she was raped by classmates."
-
Really?  That’s the RT paper headlines?  She "says" she was raped!
Where did all the NOW-Girls at the Roanoke Times go?
-
Maryland high school thrust into immigration debate
-
That's the RT web headline?  It’s not the “high school” that’s thrust into the immigration debate!  It’s the violent and vicious acts by hoodlums that the Obama Team has let into our schools and communities like so many pit-bulls who should have been sorted-out and diverted to “a kennel” back where they came from!
Who writes these contemptible headlines?  
-
The media coverage of this horrific sexual assault of a 14-year old girl in her school by two “Obama Dreamers”, one 18 the other 17 in a ninth-grade school class is starkly muted compared to the fake-rape at UVa.
Rolling Stones, UVa, Fabricated Gang Rape
-
In the UVa fake-rape case the NOW-Girls took over the role Sharpton played in the Twana Brawley fiasco with the Pravda-Media pouring fuel on the fire at every opportunity.
-
Today’s Real-Rape case is not compatible with the Liberal-Progressive Agenda of Obama’s open-door and so-called “Catch-and-Release into our communities” and his Dreamers, therefore, the Pravda-Media has relegated this case to the small slanted and biased print if any print at all.
-
Wonder how this story would be covered if it were one of The Obama Girls that were the victim?
Oh Right!  Can't happen -- they go to exclusive "Private" schools and are guarded 24-7 by armed guards!

After two illegal-alien teenagers were arrested and charged with the brutal rape of a 14-year-old girl in a Maryland school bathroom, a school superintendent is accusing parents and concerned community members of racism and xenophobia.

ISIS Inspired Radical Muslim Terrorist Strikes At Heart Of British Government


-
Roanoke Times, 3-23-2017, Pg 1, 6:  Five killed (40 seriously injured) in vehicle,  knife attack at British Parliament.
-
-
Yet again a vehicle was used by an ISIS inspired Radical Muslim Terrorist to mow-down innocent pedestrians on a city street.
A police officer then let this violent person with a knife get too close resulting in his injury and death.
Most police officers are trained for the Tueller 21-foot rule.
However, given the current anti-police hysteria, this police officer clearly waited too long to take lethal defensive action and paid with his life.
-
Relative to the US homeland security challenges we must have better processes to reject potential problems before they enter the country and better tools and processes for detecting and preventing violent acts by those who become radicalized.
We know from whence this risk comes -- we need the fortitude to confront it!

Roanoke Celebrates Obama’s Pinocchio James Clapper


-
Roanoke Times, 3-23-2017, Pg Va 5:  Gen. Clapper (Obama’s Director of so-called National Intelligence)  told area teachers to start early and stress teamwork to develop cybersecuity.
-
-
Big flowery article with two photos, one of Clapper getting the “key to the city” by Roanoke Mayor Lea.
Key to the city – Really?
How about an orange coverall for repeated cover-ups of Obama’s malfeasance's.
-
Congressional Lawmakers Renewed Calls for James Clapper (Director of National Intelligence)  Perjury Charges
“Clapper faced potential charges for an admittedly false statement to Congress in March 2013, when he responded, “No, sir" and "not wittingly” to a question (by a Democrat Senator) about whether the National Security Agency was collecting “any type of data at all” on millions of Americans.”
-
Roanoke Times, 3-23-2017, Pg 1, 8:  Congressional panel head (Rep. Devin Nunes): “(Obama’s Intelligence) Agencies were spying on Trump”!
So Clapper lied again last week in sworn testimony before Congress stating categorically that The Trump Team was not surveilled by any of Obama’s Intelligence minions – Yet another lie under oath!

WSJ’s Jason Riley At Va Tech: Take-2?


-
Wall Street Journal columnist to speak at Virginia Tech after 2016 controversy
“Jason Riley, a conservative Wall Street Journal columnist, will speak at Virginia Tech next week after the subject of his invitation to the school generated controversy last year.
The talk, sponsored by BB&T, is titled “How Campus Censorship Harms Us All,” according to an email from Vijay Singal, head of the Pamplin College of Business’s finance department. It will be held Thursday, March 30, at 3:30 p.m., in Assembly Hall at the Holtzman Alumni Center.
The talk is free and open to the public.”
-
Hopefully the entire Editorial Staff of the Roanoke Times will attend!

REF:  Roanoke Times, 5-4-2016: Va Tech’s (VT) spat over speaker (Jason Riley) heats up
University Intolerance For Contrarian Ideas And Facts
RoanokeSlant Journal Post  May 6, 2016
“Wall Street Journalist, frequent FoxNews Guest, Black Conservative Jason Riley has been invited, disinvited and reinvited to speak to students at VT.
The drama includes VT faculty and administrators jumping around the issue of who invited him in the first place and why he was disinvited.
-
The most interesting and telling quote in the story is:
“administrators and faculty in Tech’s business college are worried about more protests from the looney left if you (Riley) were to give the lecture”!
-
Says volumes about the teaching-learning environment in one of Virginia’s premier schools of “higher” learning.”
-
Did we mention that Jason's Big Problem is that he's a Conservative Black Man!

Crooked-Hillary’s Russian BombShell


-
Comey to Congress: Russians DID NOT Give Podesta’s Emails to WikiLeaks
-
Comey confirms, Assange did not lie. Podesta emails were not given to Wikileaks by Russians
-
-
“This may explain, in part, why the Dems refused to turn over their server to the FBI for analysis.
(exactly who is authorized to refuse to turn-over evidence to the FBI in a criminal investigation?)
Perhaps, as Assange stated, an insider, was involved. This is not to say the Russians weren't also involved in hacking Podesta or the DNC, but the question is, who gave the emails to WikiLeaks. We do know that 3 IT guys, who were later arrested after being accused of unauthorized access to Congressional computers including Debbie Wasserman Shultz. Could they have been the source of the emails being sent to WikiLeaks? Stranger and stranger.”
http://dailycaller.com/2017/02/04/e...it-staffers-fired-in-computer-security-probe/
-
“FBI Director James Comey testified in front of Congress on Monday. While the mainstream media (MSM) focused on his statements indicating that the FBI is investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 US election, the highlight of Comey’s testimony was ignored.
Comey mentioned that the FBI is investigating the leaks of secret information to the press and he told the House Intelligence Committee the investigation is still underway and he would be unable to discuss matters linked to the investigation.
However, the most important piece of information that Comey disclosed to Congress was that the Russians did not provide WikiLeaks HIllary’s campaign manager John Podesta’s emails.”
-
“Comey said something interesting today that nobody’s picked up on yet because they’re so distracted by this other stuff, which I can understand. He was asked specifically if WikiLeaks was furnished their information on Podesta and the phone calls by the Russians, and Comey said no.”
-
“The entire case that Democrats make that ‘Russia stole the election from Hillary’ is based on the premise that Russia supplied Podesta’s emails to WikiLeaks which then somehow led to Hillary’s defeat.”

New News 3-22-2017:
Trump team communications captured by intelligence community surveillance, Nunes says
(may have to copy-paste link into browser)
“Members of the intelligence community "incidentally collected" communications from the Trump transition team during legal surveillance operations of foreign targets, a top Republican lawmaker said Wednesday afternoon.
House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said this produced "dozens" of reports which eventually unmasked several individuals’ identities and were "widely disseminated."
Nunes said the surveillance collection was "legally collected foreign intelligence under FISA incidental collection." But Nunes said he was "alarmed" the intelligence "ended up in reporting channels and was widely disseminated."”

Anti-Israel-Jewish Jihad Comes To Va Tech


-
Roanoke Times,  3-21-2017, Pg 1, 4:  VT rallied around the Jewish community in Blacksburg to condemn the Nazi symbols recently left on the lawn of the Jewish student center.
-
-
University campuses across the US and EU have become a hot-bed of Anti-Israeli-Jewish demonstrations and hate talk as part of a so-called Pro-Palestinian Movement.
Anti-Semitism spikes on U.S. campuses
-
Today, Mar 21,  the Trump UN Rep.  Nikki Haley (what a great replacement for Obama’s anti-Israel-Jewish minion Samantha Power) is boycotting yet another attack against Israel by Anti-Israel members of the UN.
Compare Trump’s actions in his first two months to Obama’s pathetic behavior over eight miserable years.
House of Representatives votes to DENOUNCE OBAMA for betraying Israel at U.N.
-
Obama’s sustained Anti-Israel actions and rhetoric for the past 8-years has enabled and encouraged those who want to isolate Israel from the US and force a pro-Palestinian solution on Israel.

Roanoke Times, 3-21-2017, Pg 1, 6:  Trump campaign part of FBI Probe.
-
Trump started a firestorm with his Tweet that he and his Trump Tower were “wire-tapped” by Obama’s minions.
-
Clearly “wire-tapping”  No Longer requires folks in fake ATT jump suits carrying little tool boxes to enter a building and attach wires or devices to targeted phones.  As admitted to Congress, our “spooks” clearly are intercepting massive volumes of phone calls through “taps” on the  major switching centers and Internet Providers.
-
So, we don’t do “wire-taps” but we have massive amounts of phone call data, not just phone numbers, but phone call content that we are sifting through per FBI Comey who says he doesn’t have any “wire tapped” data involving Trump or Trump Tower, BUT, he’s sorting through massive amounts of “data” to ascertain what Trump associates were saying to the Russian Ambassador.
But No “wire-tap” data!  Really?  Talk about “DoubleSpeak”!
Reminiscent of the “it all depends on what your definition of “is” is!

Shades of Lawmakers Renewed Calls for James Clapper (Director of National Intelligence)  Perjury Charges

-
Given there’s No “wire-taps” what are the sources of the data that is being leaked to the press?  Given the supposedly small band of people who had access to Mike Flynn’s phone data content “not collected by wire-tap” the FBI should be able to isolate and prosecute the so-called-leaker.
-
Leaking these “not collected by wire-tap” phone conversations is the Only Crime identified to date!
The content of the phone conversations, reviewed to date, were described by Comey as Not Criminal!

New News Item  3-21-20017 PM:  There was an "old" wire-tap at Trump Tower -- Really?
Russian mafia boss still at large after FBI wiretap at Trump Tower
There, indeed, was an FBI wiretap involving Russians at Trump Tower.
But it was not placed at the behest of Barack Obama and the target was not the Trump campaign of 2016. For two years ending in 2013, the FBI had a court-approved warrant to eavesdrop on a sophisticated Russian organized crime money laundering network that operated out of unit 63A in Trump Tower.

US Troops Enter Poland, 1st Deployment at Russia's Doorstep

WARSAW, Poland — American soldiers rolled into Poland on Thursday, fulfilling a dream some Poles have had since the fall of communism in 1989 to have U.S. troops on their soil as a deterrent against Russia.
Some people waved and held up American flags as U.S. troops in tanks and other vehicles crossed into southwestern Poland from Germany and headed toward the town of Zagan, where they will be based.
-
What’s wrong with this picture?
Did not Trump just confront Germany’s Merkel about the anemic showing by the EU countries in the NATO mission?
-
The EU NATO countries have milked their dependency on the US too long.  It’s past time for them to do their share.
Why isn’t this a German Unit rolling into Poland from Germany?
They know where it is – they’ve been there before and
they've confronted the Russians before!

Maryland Sanctuary County “Dreamers” Rape Fellow Student In School


-
New News 3-23-2017:
Undocumented Man Allegedly Raped Girl, Democrats Want To Protect Him
“Last week, two male high school students at Rockville High School in Maryland allegedly raped a 14-year-old girl in the bathroom. One of the two suspects is an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala, but Maryland Democrats want to protect him from getting deported. The Democratic-controlled Maryland legislature voted in favor of a bill to make their state the first “sanctuary state” in the country. If the bill becomes law, it would protect illegal immigrants like 18-year-old Henry Sanchez-Milian, who was arrested last week along with 17-year-old Jose Montano. The two students, who were enrolled as freshmen due to their limited English skills, have been charged with first-degree rape”
-

-
Two 9th grade immigrants, one from Mexico18 and the other from Guatemala 17 , raped and sodomized a girl student, in the boys room of their school in the sanctuary county of Montgomery County Maryland.
New, brutal details emerged Monday in the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl at a Maryland high school by two male students…..
-
This brutal crime involves all the current issues of:
Out of control Illegal Immigrants
18-year old's in 9th grade classes
A Sanctuary County with that associated mentality and rules

Trump To Merkel: Time To Do Your Share


-
Trump and Andrea Merkel held a meeting in DC.
The meeting was strained and tense at best.
-
Trump’s bottom line:
One: You German’s need to engage in “fair” trade with the US, unlike what has been happening!
Two: It’s nice you German’s have put one-million refugees on your welfare rolls, however it’s time you put your money into your military defenses (consistent with your commitment to NATO) and stop depending on the US for the back-bone of your national defense!
-
Why isn’t Germany supporting Ukraine and standing in the way of the Russian invasion of Ukraine!  Your 88's have faced the Russians before!
-
Why isn’t Germany taking a lead role in securing Safe Zones in Syria so that millions of refugees aren’t fleeing into the EU?
-
Its way past time for Germany and the other EU countries to come to the aid of themselves and those who are being abused!
-
Yet another good reason folks voted for Trump and not Crooked-Hillary!

Freedom Of Information Not Free


-
Roanoke Times, 3-13-2017, Pg 1:  Groups defend public access to federal data;  The Trump administration has limited or removed information sources that citizens formerly accessed.

-
3-15-2017, Pg 1, 6: US (Obama) spent $36-MILLION (of taxpayer money) in records (FOIA) suits last year.  The Obama administration set a record for a second year for refusing information (FOIA) requests.
-
3-16-2017, Pg 7: Opinion: It’s your right to know.

Hopefully The Trump Administration will continue to take-down and eliminate all of the mis-and-dis-information that Obama’s minions had posted on government websites.
Removing the Gore-Mann so-called AGW Global Warming tripe was a good first start!

Mike Flynn A Russian Piker Compared To Bill Clinton


-
The Pravda-Media all-a-buzz with news about Mike Flynn’s Russian speaking fees – not one word that Bill Clinton got 10-TIMES AS MUCH with a clear quid-pro-quo with Hillary’s influence peddling at US expense!
-
-
Russians Paid Mike Flynn $45K for Moscow Speech, Documents Show
“The state-sponsored Russian television network RT paid former Defense Intelligence Agency head Mike Flynn more than $45,000, plus perks, to speak at its 10 anniversary gala in December 2015, according to documents released by Democrats on the House Oversight Committee Thursday.”
-
-
Hillary And Bill Had The Real Lucrative Russian Connections
Bill Clinton received $500,000 (10-times as much as Flynn) for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.  The very Russians that at that time were getting 20% of the US uranium capacity from Hillary as Obama’s Secretary of State!
Move along folks – nothing to see here!
Hillary: can you say malfeasance?

“While Rachel Maddow drones on with the coherence of Janet Yellen, losing thousands of viewers by the minute, the MSNBC anchor was promptly scooped not only by the White House which revealed her "secret" one hour in advance, but also by the Daily Beast which reported that its contributor David Cay Johnston had obtained the first two pages of Trump’s 2005 federal income tax return, allegedly receiving them in the mail, and posted his "analysis" on his website, DCReport.org.
According to the documents, Trump and his wife Melania paid $38 million in total income tax, consisting of $5.3 million in regular federal income tax, and an additional $31 million of “alternative minimum tax,” or AMT.”

Obama College Buddy And Appointee Declares Trump Travel Ban Not OK

Isn’t it interesting that the countries designated by Obama as Terrorist States have now become Muslim States and designating them for “enhanced vetting” is now a Big Religious Problem.
Talk about Liberal Hypocrisy and abuse of the legal system!
“The law signed in December 2015 by Obama applies to countries designated by the United States as having "repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism." Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen (the same seven countries in Trump’s order) have that designation.”

Bigotry or Prudence?


-
Repost of a RoanokeSlant item from Thursday, January 11, 2007
-
This message just as valid after 10-years of painful experiences.
-
-
Ref: Letters to the Editor of the SML Eagle, Pg 4A, 1/10/2007
-
Having read the recent thoughtful and passionate letters to the editor by Mr. Bricca and Ms. Carr relative to Rep. Goode’s position on Muslim immigration, it appears to me that they and others may be failing to consider the stark facts of the current violent situation we all face from members within the Muslim community.
-
Perhaps one should reflect on the Muslim situation with Salman Rushdie, the Pope’s recent interaction with the Muslim community, the European government’s and medias’ fear and capitulation to threats and intimidation by their domestic Muslim communities. This being compounded by the absence of the Muslim leadership and community condemnation of the Radical Muslim movement’s brutal attacks on Americans and other non-Muslims and the World War that Radical Muslims have launched across the globe.
-
Perhaps concerns and reactions to these facts are not based on bigotry but may be based on data that would lead a reasonable and prudent person to conclude that there is a clear and present risk within that religious community and that the leaders of that community have not repudiated these violent acts nor mounted a visible effort to stop it. In fact it appears that many of the Mullahs are a key part of the problem. Many of their madrassa-schools have "graduated" thousands of violent radicals who have joined the Jihad against US. A Mullah who resides here in the US was the leader of the first attack on the World Trade Towers.
-
The US has always used our immigration policy and procedures to regulate the number of people entering from other countries. Where there have been demonstrated or perceived risks among certain groups, the quotas have been zero. The fact that these risks might be wrapped in robes and carrying a religious book does not mitigate the risks but in fact may make the risks greater. The Japanese Kamikaze’s (The Sacred Warriors) were also very religious and were wrapped in robes and carried the Kojiki.
