Federal Courts Rebut Obama’s Overreach

-
Roanoke Times,  5-21-2015, Tiny small print on Pg 3:  Panel won’t lift hold on executive authority.
-
One can just imagine the page one big headline and print for an Appeals Court rebut of a Bush initiative!
-
The Federal Court of Appeals keeps on-hold Obama’s executive actions (with pen and cell phone) to stop deportation process for illegal immigrants.
-
-
The Obama totally unprofessional response to the Court findings:
-
“The White House reacted to the news that the Fifth Circuit court of appeals denied an appeal from the Obama administration to lift a stay on his executive amnesty plan, accusing two judges in the decision of interpreting the law incorrectly.”
“Today, two judges of the Fifth Circuit chose to misinterpret the facts and the law in denying the government’s request for a stay,” White House spokesperson Brandi Hoffine said in a statement to Breitbart News.
http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/05/26/white-house-fifth-circuit-judges-misinterpreted-the-law-on-immigration-decision/
-
-
Apparently, in spite of his snide and inappropriate remarks, Obama is not on firm-ground because he’s not going to appeal to SCOTUS!
-
US won't seek high court review in immigration case
WASHINGTON –  The government says it won't ask the Supreme Court to review a judge's decision that put on hold President Barack Obama's executive action on immigration.

Police Training

-
"Now let me see if I have this right. The family situation is so unstable, 'Junior' doesn't even know where to send a Father's Day card. There's no guidance or discipline in the home. Junior gets dumped into the education system where he is socially promoted because the overwhelmed school district can't deal with the undisciplined whelp. Junior's major formative influences are 'gangsta' rap videos and a corresponding peer group of gangsta wannabes.
-

At age 18, Junior is turned loose on society carrying a bad attitude, a broken moral-compass and little respect for authority. Junior gets himself in big trouble with the law and meets dire consequences. Then, the situational diagnosis is that the police need more training and understanding?
-

Pardon me for asking, but do you really believe that heifer-dust?
-
Author unknown but very insightful.

Obama’s Pravda Media Jumps On Secretary Of Defense

-
Roanoke Times, 5-27-2015, Pg 1, 9: AP:  Carter’s (Ash Carter US Sec. of Defense) comment undercuts strategy.
-
-
Undercuts strategy --- Really? – and what strategy might that be?
Is there anyone anywhere who believes that Obama has a MidEast strategy?
Oh Yes there is  --- his Pravda-Media!
How dare Carter say anything to conflict with Obama!
-
Carter looked at the Ramadi Rout of the Iraqi’s by ISIS and simply noted:
The Iraqi’s had far more troops than ISIS.
The Iraqi’s were in a well-developed defensive position.
The Iraqi’s had air-support.
The Iraqi’s were well equipped with US arms and equipment.
When the battle developed:
The Iraqi’s collapsed and ran leaving massive amounts of arms, ammo, vehicles and equipment behind for the ISIS.
-
Darn that Carter – who does he think he is to make these statements?
Oh Yes – he’s the Secretary of Defense!

Flooding Not New And Not CO2-AGW-Caused

-
The Current Texas Flooding is grabbing media coverage and spawning yet more man-made global warming and climate change AGW speculation.
-
It’s noteworthy that the media doesn’t give their audience any reflections or comparisons to historical events, thereby implying that each event is really “new record-breaking news” when in fact very few current weather events are setting new records.
-
The most significant component is that we now have 330 Million people and have become a “target rich environment” for every natural event.
There were only 120 Million people in US in 1927.
 -
Most destructive river flood in the history of the U.S.:
1927:  500 killed; 600,000 homeless
At Vicksburg, Mississippi, May 1927 the river was 80 miles wide.
-
The sheer landmass involved in this flood makes it incredibly noteworthy. Across Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana, some 16 million acres of land (26,000 square miles) were inundated with water from the mighty Mississippi.

Hamas Continues Their Middle East Terrorism

-
Amnesty International accuses Hamas of torturing, killing Palestinians in new report on Gaza conflict
http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/05/27/amnesty-international-accuses-hamas-torturing-killing-palestinians-in-new/
-
Amnesty International accused Hamas militants Wednesday of abducting, torturing, and carrying out summary executions of Palestinians during last year's conflict in the Gaza Strip. 
The report, the last of four released by the human rights group detailing events during the fighting, said that at least 23 Palestinians were shot and killed by Hamas, which rules Gaza, while dozens more were arrested and tortured. Amnesty said those targeted were either political rivals of Hamas, including members of the Fatah party of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, or people the militant group had accused of cooperating with Israel.
-
-
The Radical Muslim Terrorists are equal-opportunity terrorists. 
It’s interesting that Amnesty International would finally take a break from their abuse of Israel to acknowledge the real terrorists and murderers in the area.
-
-
And our esteemed leader still can’t say” “Radical Muslim Terrorists”!

Media’s Dual Coverage Policy For Police Deaths

-
Omaha police officer killed in shootout just hours before going on maternity leave
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/05/21/police-officer-suspect-killed-in-omaha-shooting/
-
MSN AP:
Slain Omaha officer who was new mom honored at her funeral
http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/slain-omaha-officer-who-was-new-mom-honored-at-her-funeral/ar-BBkgE73
OMAHA, Neb.Omaha police officer Kerrie Orozco was one day away from going on maternity leave to care for the daughter she had delivered prematurely three months earlier when she answered a call to help a fellow officer.
Within minutes, Orozco lay in a yard fatally wounded. She had been shot by a man wanted for an earlier shooting.
-
-
It’s interesting that MSN and AP who have been super quick to highlight and emphasize the color of police involved in black-person incidents totally forgot to mention these facts in this story.
The media's dual standards for highlighting race-bating incidents clearly is on display in yet another case of Police Officers killed in the line of duty.
-
I missed this story in my local news, perhaps because Obama, Holder, the FBI the DOJ and all the rioters were no where to be seen.
Something about:  If a police officer falls in the line of duty and the media isn't interested – was the officer’s life important?
-
MSN  AP:  "Shot by a man"
In contrast, FoxNews did print the appropriate picture:
-
-

-
-
God bless Officer Orozco, her family and all the other officers who serve in harms way to help ensure we can live in peace in our homes and on our streets.

'Il Silencio' (The Silence)
The conductor of the orchestra is Andre Rieu from Holland.
Melissa Venema, age 13, is the trumpet soloist.
The Original version of Taps was called Last Post, and was written by Daniel Butterfield in 1801. It was rather lengthy and formal, as you will hear in this clip, so in 1862 it was shortened to 24 notes and re-named Taps. Melissa Venema is playing it on a trumpet whereby the original was played on a bugle.

ISIS And The Media

-
The Media is working diligently to downplay and marginalize the Al Qaeda and ISIS atrocities, their major battlefield wins and their genocide of Christians.
-
 -

-
-
These news events are not covered lest the public come to understand the massive deterioration in the safety and security of multitudes of innocent people and its direct connection to Obama’s Failed Policies.

Hillary’s Emails: Pravda Press Achieves New High In MisDirection

-
Roanoke Times, 5-23-2015, POg 1, 4: AP:   Clinton’s Benghazi emails released.  The emails, from her private server, were handled securely, Clinton and her staff said.
-
-
THIS IS NOT A NEWS STORY – THIS IS A PR RELEASE BY THE CLINTON ELECTION COMMITTEE THROUGH THEIR EMISSARIES IN THE PRAVDA PRESS!  AND IT'S A LEAD ON PAGE 1 !
-
-
Only Clinton knows how many Benghazi Emails were in her unauthorized private basement server unprotected by the federal governments firewalls designed to protect national classified materials.
-
Clinton has acknowledged that only 55,000 of her total Emails were turned over to the State Dept. IT.  Only Clinton knows how many there were and of those how many she chose to delete and what the criteria was for deletion. 
This initial 900 Emails represents 1.6% of the 55,000 she chose to release.
-
Clinton has stated she has “wiped clean” her server hard-drives and has refused to turn-over her server to Congressional Investigators.
-
This so called release of 900 Emails clearly cannot even begin to reflect the Email traffic about Benghazi that the Secretary of State would have received/sent on one of the biggest political debacles of the Obama term.
-
Having now looked at these hand-full of Emails, two years after the fact, the FBI has concluded that at least one contains SECRET data.  Hillary claims that this is a new designation that didn’t apply when the Email originated!
Of course it didn’t apply – the people who classify and secure government classified materials never saw them – STUPID!
-
Internal emails show Clinton got detailed intel on 'planned' Benghazi hit

Obama The Master Illusionist, King Of AGW MisDirection

-
Roanoke Times, 5-21-2015, Pg 4:  Obama: At Coast Guard Officers Graduation: AGW Climate change denial endangers US.
-
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/05/20/obama-to-warn-coast-guard-cadets-global-warming-national-security-threat/
-
Obama The Master Illusionist, King Of Misdirection in Action:
-
Look over here:  See the Video that caused the Benghazi disaster
Reality:  It was a well-planed Radical Muslim Terrorist Attack
-
Look over here:  See how low the unemployment rate is
Reality: The rate is low because millions of workers have dropped out of the workforce
-
Look over here:  See how Al Qaeda is decimated and defeated
Reality:  Al Qaeda is powerful and growing and a real and present danger
-
Look over here:  See how I got all the chemical weapons out of Syria
Reality:  Al-Assad is killing his people with chemical weapons now
-
Look over here: The Iranians are going to curb their nuclear ambitions and weapons
Reality: The Ayatollah said again yesterday no inspections and no restrictions
-
The List Goes On and On and On and On!
-
Graduates of the Coast Guard Academy, defenders of our shores and ports and ocean facilities around the world, in this time of Jihad against us by the Radical Muslim Terrorists of the world, I, as your Commander-In-Chief want you to focus on Global Warming and Climate Change.
-
I have no data or scientific facts to show you the danger.  In fact, the preponderance of the data shows no significant global warming or climate change due to nature or man and I'm certainly not going to show you that!
-
But, I have on the government payroll many hundreds of “scientists” with dozens of computers cranking out unverified predictions of bad things to come.
-
These programs cannot explain the past three hundred years since the end of the little ice age, nor the last one hundred years of less than one degree warming nor can they explain why there has been no change in the global temperature for the past 18 years.
-
However, believe me and my grant-dependent “scientists”,  we know what the future holds -- we don't need facts -- we have a consensus!
-
Just don’t look behind our “consensus” curtain.
-
-
You just might find these NASA graphs and data

Va TeaParty-Republican Congressman Brat Flaunting His Ineptitude

-
Roanoke Times, 5-21-2015, Pg Va 3:  Immigrants in military not good for country, Brat says.
http://www.roanoke.com/news/politics/dave-brat-criticized-for-immigration-islamic-state-comment/article_a9fdd3dc-77e3-562f-a485-a6dbdb4446a7.html
-
Dave Brat, The Va TeaParty’s replacement for our outstanding Conservative Republican Eric Canter,  has again demonstrated his inability to properly represent the people of Virginia.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2014/07/teaparty-wins-and-gop-loses.html
-
Brat, the professional professor, tells the public that immigrant young people shouldn’t serve in our armed forces.
-
Really?  Historically that has been one of the “paths to citizenship” for thousands of young immigrants.
-
As an Artillery Officer in Germany, I served with many young German-American soldiers who had immigrated to the US and were immediately drafted and then sent back to Germany to help face two million East-block troops backed by 60,000 T24 Soviet tanks.  They all served with honor and distinction.
-
There is no reason to believe that the US military cannot separate the wheat-from-the-chaff today like they have in the past.

And to think these TeaParty-Republicans call me a RINO!

Tabloid Junk Journalism Unbecoming The Roanoke Times

-
Roanoke Times, 5-21-2015, Pg Va 1, 8:
Pg 1: Morrissey admits he’s father of out-of-wedlock child
Pg 8: Morrissey to run for Va Senate
-
This Tabloid Yellow Journalism by the Richmond Times should not have been “picked-up” by the RT.  It highlights and flaunts:

-
However the most disturbing part of this gross mess are the staged photos that the RT apparently felt compelled to share with their readers.  Photos that are clearly intended to spark negative emotions by the viewers.
And, the media claims thy are working hard to make things better in our culture! 
Who chooses this stuff off the wire-services?   How sad is that!

George Stephanopoulos: Poster Boy For The PravdaPress

-
Roanoke Times, 5-20-205, Pg7: Cal Thomas: “Who is a journalist?”
-
Stephanopoulos, who worked in the Clinton Whitehouse, donated $75,000 to the Hillary Slush Fund and then went postal on an author who questioned the massive conflicts of interest between Hillary and the millions given to her by foreign governments while she was Secretary of State.
-

NY Post:  ABC’s ‘secret’ $105M gamble on Stephanopoulos
http://pagesix.com/2015/05/18/george-stephanopoulos-future-and-105m-contract-in-danger/
ABC has plenty of reasons to be freaking out over the George Stephanopoulos scandal — $105million, to be exact.
The “Good Morning America” and “This Week” anchor renewed his contract last year for $105 million, TV industry sources told The Post Monday.
-
-
Hillary is now anxious to have the Emails released to the public that she and her minions scrubbed clear of any embarrassing data.
All the “other stuff” was deleted and her basement server wiped clean.
And the think she was on the Nixon impeachment investigation.
Yes, she was, but she was fired for being “unethical”!

Highlighting Political Hypocrisy

-
Roanoke Times, 5-16-2015, Editorial: Pipelines and hypocrisy focusing on Republican hypocrisy relative to not building a pipeline on “my” land but it’s OK to build it on “your” land.
-
-
We will now wait with “baited breath” for the RT Editors to focus on the hypocrisy of the Kennedy Clan’s Jihad against the Wind Power farms off-shore from the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis.
-
To help with their follow-up hypocrisy article they may refer to my Prior blog item comparing Wind Turbines on the Highlands of Va to the Kennedys.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2005/05/wind-turbines-on-highlands-of-va.html
-
At Nantucket Sound, Ma., this same issue was fought in 2003. The environmental elitists, the Kennedy Clan, raised every issue possible to stop off-shore wind turbines including getting Walter Kronkite to make TV ads for them. However, Walter changed his position from "no" to "show-me" and then had the ads removed from the air.

Obama: Turn Off The Lights – Solar Panels Don’t Work At Night

NYC in talks to keep Times Square billboards after federal law called for lights out
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/05/06/lights-out-nyc-reportedly-under-fed-pressure-to-take-down-times-square/?intcmp=latestnews
-
-
Great idea by Obama and his EPA and Green-energy team.
Shut off the lights at night (because solar panels don’t work at night) unless there is a nice breeze sufficient to run the wind-turbines.
-
What about that New Years Eve Ball thing?  If we raise it up during sunlight hours, we should be OK to drop it at night.
-
The hooligans and muggers are all onboard.  The sooner the lights are turned down the sooner they can increase their revenue both on and off  the streets and with DeBlasio in charge, they will enjoy free-rein.
-
Perhaps NYC can bring back the whale-oil lamps, if not the kerosene lamps, if not the natural gas lamps.  Sure has been a series of technology upgrades in the street light business.

ISIS - Obama’s Designated JV-Team Takes Ramadi

-
Roanoke Times, 5-17-2015, Pg 9:  Islamic State tightens grip on Ramadi.

Would this major military set-back be on page-9 if a Bush were in office?  I think NOT!  Something about the Pravda-media accenting the positive and marginalizing the negative for their main-man.

ISIS takes Ramadi as their reinforcements surge into city
http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/17/asia/isis-ramadi/

(CNN)The key Iraqi city of Ramadi fell to ISIS on Sunday after government security forces pulled out of a military base on the west side of the city, the mayor and a high-ranking security official said.

The ISIS advances came after militants detonated a series of morning car bomb blasts, Mayor Dalaf al-Kubaisy and a high-ranking Iraqi security official said. The explosions forced Iraqi security forces and tribal fighters to retreat to the city's east, they said.

Clashes have raged in the beleaguered capital of Anbar province for months as Iraqi and allied forces battle ISIS militants for control of the strategically located city, which is just 110 km (70 miles) west of Baghdad.

Ramadi, the largest city in western Iraq, is just a few miles from an Iraqi army headquarters that ISIS blew up in March.

Baltimore’s Freddie Gray: Swiss Army Knife or Switch-blade?

-
Latest 5-23 Baltimore Crime News:
Violent crime surges as arrests drop in Baltimore post-riots
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/05/23/violent-crime-surges-as-arrests-drop-in-baltimore-post-riots/?intcmp=latestnews
-
I was recently “informed” about the details of the case of Baltimore’s Freddie Gray (the black-man who died in Baltimore Police custody).  The “informer” claimed to have “inside” information about the case.  He claims Freddie was wrongly arrested because his knife was legal.  His “inside facts” are that the knife was simply a “Swiss army knife”.  What could be more innocent than that?
-
I simply stated that concealed knives can be illegal depending on the size and type.  Blades longer than 3-inches are illegal in most places IF concealed.  That’s why most craftsmen and sportsmen carry their knives in holders on their belt.
-
Apparently, this person’s “inside” information stands in stark contrast to data in USAToday that states the knife in question was a “switch-blade” knife.
-
It’s difficult to confirm the USAToday and the Baltimore Sun data because the Prosecutor who filed charges against the cops is refusing to display the knife to the media or public!  What’s up with that?
-

Baltimore cop argues Freddie Gray had illegal knife 
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/05/05/baltimore-cop-claims-freddie-gray-knife-illegal/26950303/
“The arrest report stated that the 25-year-old Gray was carrying "a spring-assisted, one hand-operated knife."
“A police task force also determined the knife was "spring-assisted," thereby violating city law”, The Baltimore Sun reported.
“In a motion filed Monday, one of Nero's attorneys, Marc Zayon, states the knife is illegal under both city and state law.”
“City law prohibits the sale, possession or carrying of "any knife with an automatic spring or other device for opening and/or closing the blade," commonly called a switchblade”

Morally Sick People Exploiting A Disaster

Democrats and MSNBC instantaneously converting a fatal tragedy into a sick political attack.

8th victim found in Amtrak wreckage as engineer claims no memory of crash

-
Before the smoke cleared and bodies could be recovered and next of kin contacted, Congressional Democrats chanted that the disaster was caused by Republican budget constraints.

How sick is that!
-
Budget constraints made the train do 100 MPH?
And the majority of people keep voting Democrat!
There clearly is a major problem with our school systems to say nothing about our Pravda-Press!

AMTRAK is a Government Run Train System!
The engineer of the train traveling 100 MPH in a 50 MPH speed zone is yet another Obama government employee with selective amnesia.
Probably like all the other maleficent Obama team members he can’t be fired either!
However, he is a white-male so that places him in a higher-risk category.

But no one blamed the Republicans!

Obama to Change Republican Thinking with Media’s Help

Obama Rips Fox: ‘We’re Going to Have to Change How the Media Reports’
http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2015/05/12/obama-rips-fox-were-going-to-have-to-change-how-the-media-reports/
“And so, if we’re going to change how  Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)  and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) think, we’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues, and how people’s impressions of what it’s like to struggle in this economy looks like. And how budgets connect to that. And that’s a hard process because that requires a much broader conversation than typically we have on the nightly news.”

Obama is upset that there is one news outlet that has not joined his Pravda-Press!
He is so upset that he has publically launched an offensive against FoxNews and Congressional Republican Leaders by enlisting his Pravda-Press to escalate the political-domestic war on his behalf.
-
“Strugggling in this economy”!
Did it ever occur to Obama that it’s HIS ECONOMY – STUPID!

At every opportunity Obama has marginalized and berated and inhibited private enterprise and personal businesses; including his nasty tirade at Fire House #1 in Downtown Roanoke:
Obama to Businessmen: You Didn’t Do Nothin!

Watch the video of Obama, watch the facial expressions, watch the body language listen to the words and draw your own conclusions as to who is "twisting the truth" and who is insulting your intelligence.

Gasoline Was $1.84 -- Then We Bought The Hope And Change

It’s amazing how the AP Pravda Press can continue for six years to peddle the Obama-snake-oil – and how local press like the Roanoke Times can just jump on the heifer-dust wagon and help spread the “message”!
-
And buy the way – Obama and minions have done everything within their power to increase the cost of energy in the quest for so called “green” energy.
