The EU Bureaucracy And The US Federal Government

-
The British Voters voted to exit the EU out of frustration and hostility to a nameless, faceless, arrogant EU Bureaucracy that has invaded their lives and stifled their dreams.
A Bureaucracy that controls their jobs, or lack thereof, their borders, or lack thereof, their national Sovereignty and independence, or lack thereof.
-
What a direct corollary to our US Federal Government!
-
This week, here in Virginia, the Federal Government has “directed and demanded” that a biological girl be admitted to the boys bathroom in a public school.
What better example of the Federal Government’s intrusion into not only the State’s sovereignty and environment but into our local County School Board’s Bathrooms and a total trespass upon parental guidance of our children.  And to what end?
-
The US Federal Government has totally abdicated our National Borders and is directly placing millions of illegal immigrants into our communities and schools.
-
The US Federal Government has stifled private industry job creation and lies to the American people with unemployment statistics that totally defy the reality of uncounted millions of out-of-work American Workers.
-
The dumbest quote to come out of the BREXIT discussion is a quote by Democrat Senator Mark Warner in today’s Roanoke Times:
“There is nothing in the world that can take away the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit that has always been the life-force of the American economy,” Warner said.
-
Clearly Warner is so committed to the Obama-Progressive-Socialist Movement that he doesn’t recognize the damage to our economic system that seven years of Obama policies have wrought; including:  the stagnation of our private industry jobs, our massive unemployment and underemployment, pathetic economic growth seven years after the recession ended, the decimation of our middle-class and the massive dependency upon the government by tens of millions of our people.
-
The Federal Government’s reply:
We know what's best for you and you people aren’t regulated and controlled enough!
-
Yes Senator Warner – there are things that can destroy the American economic system and they are part and parcel of Socialism and Fascism.
-
-
A very disturbing view of the major immigration into England that greatly influenced the BREXIT vote is:

Obama Helps Sink The British Prime Minister – BREXIT Passes

-
Not since the war of 1812 has a US President done so much damage to a British Head of Government, i.e.: David Cameron.
Obama felt compelled to flash his Nobel Prize Metal in the face of the British voters telling them what’s best for them and how to vote!
-
He also told the Brits if you vote for BREXIT you will be "riding in the back of the bus"!
It is difficult to describe how gross this statement is without using really bad language!
-
They looked at Obama’s stance on uncontrolled illegal immigration, his dismal economic recovery, his penchant to ram federal rules down the throats of American citizens just like the EU is doing to British citizens and then they voted to give Obama and his bud. Cameron the bird and leave the EU.
-
'Brexit' victory sends Cameron packing, roils world financial markets
“Supporters of the "leave" side painted the vote as a referendum on the nation's sovereignty, which they say has been ceded to unelected EU bureaucrats based in Brussels.”
-
-
The BIG implication of this grass-roots rebellion and vote is that Donald Trump’s election may be “on the way” based on his stance on illegal immigration, the economy and always making decisions based on what’s best for the US.
-
Perhaps just like in the UK, every speech Obama makes on Hillary’s behalf may well result in more votes for Trump and a Trump Victory!
-
Just more Hope and Change we can believe in!

Court Smacks Obama For Fracking Infraction

-
Roanoke Times, 6-23-2016, Pg 10: Fracking: Administration decries Federal Judge ruling.
-
Obama and his EPA and Land Mgnt. Minions claim they’re trying to use “21st century standards”, but the Federal Court says “They lack the authority”.
How would Obama and his minions know anything about “21st century standards”?  Since when have any of them accomplished anything but writing hundreds of thousands of pages of indecipherable regulations?
-
First: the RT printed the article in very small print back on Pg 10 -- apparently hopeful that few will see or read yet another court rebuke to Obama and associates; flying in the face of his pen and cell-phone.
-
Second: The RT’s sugar-coated court statement fly’s in the face of the strong words used by the Federal Judge:
You are in excess of your statutory authority and contrary to law!  Strong Email to follow!
-
Clearly the Pravda Media does not want the American consumers and voters to connect the dots between:
(private industry producing large volumes of fracked gas and oil that is resulting in low cost of energy and lots of jobs)
And
(Obama’s sustained efforts to curtail fracking with conjured-up regulations and massive mis-and-disinformation propaganda!
-
Judge Strikes Down Obama Rule on Fracking on Public Lands
A federal judge in Wyoming has blocked an Interior Department rule setting stricter standards for hydraulic fracturing on public lands, the latest blow to an administration environmental agenda that has drawn wide opposition from Republicans and industry officials.
The department’s rule “is in excess of its statutory authority and contrary to law,” Judge Skavdahl wrote.

SCOTUS Stops POTUS’ Illegal Immigration Fiats

-
U.S. Supreme Court Deadlock Blocks Obama’s Immigration Plan
WSJ:  The one-sentence decision was an anticlimactic end to Mr. Obama’s ambitious plan to push his executive authority over immigration to the outer limit, a move blocked by a federal court in Brownsville, Texas, after Texas led 26 Republican-leaning states in a lawsuit against the policy.
-
-
Yet again the Obama pen and cell-phone have been thwarted by Federal Courts that try as they may to “go with him” are forced to say “No” yet again.
-
Obama, “the constitutional scholar” has been rebuked by 20 unanimous SCOTU rulings with many more cases working their way up the system.
-
The current rebuke on Obama’s Immigration Proclamation clearly sends the message that Obama has and is issuing mandates in disregard of our laws and Constitution knowing that the judicial system is so cumbersome that he can have his way for years before he is rebuked.  This bad behavior by someone sworn to uphold our laws and Constitution!

Media Diagnose McAuliffe With ADHD

-
Roanoke Times, Editorial:  6-22-2016:
Our view: Terry McAuliffe's inattention to detail
-
After years of covering every detail of McAuliffe’s activities with great fanfare and admiration the Media has now concluded that all McAuliffe’s missteps are caused by “inattention to detail”, aka ADHD.
Does he not have hundreds of taxpayer-paid staff to analyze each and every thing he does and advise him of the +’s the –‘s and the adverse consequences?
-
Apparently to satisfy the Liberal Media one must be totally true to the orthodoxy and McAuliffe fell off the wagon with his support of the Fracked-Gas Pipelinel.
-
For the rest of us, McAuliffe does not have ADHD; he has the Obama-Hillary Progressive Virus and a penchant to do what he wants to do without regard to little things like the State Legislature and Constitution.
-
Actually McAuliffe and Hillary have a lot in common: they’re both under FBI inverstigation:
-
McAuliffe’s biggest transgression is to try to ensure Virginia will go for Hillary by enabling over 200,000 felons to vote this year by executive fiat.
McAuliffe Plays The Voting Race Card With Felons
-
The McAuliffe order is a restoration of all citizenship rights for felons.
This has resulted in a rash of adverse consequences including defense attorney’s questioning if they can require:
Rapest to be on Rape case juries.
Child Molesters to be on Child Molester case juries.
And how about gun ownership?  Prior law makes it illegal for felons to possess a firearm – apparently now it’s OK?
-
Killer: Where’s My Absentee Ballot That McAuliffe Promised?
-
Roanoke Times, 6-17-2016, Pg 1, 5: Many sex offenders may be able to vote.
-
Roanoke Times, 6-19-2016:  Pg 1, 7: Ex-felons seeking an opportunity to get guns.
-
The height of McAuliffe’s audacity is to besmirch those who are trying to cope with all the adverse consequences of his political-racist action.
Roanoke Times, 6-23-2016, Pg 2:  McAuliffe chastises prosecutors (who have joined Republican Legislators in a law suite) opposed to rights restoration order.
-
-
It may be uncomfortable for McAuliffe to discuss his felons-voting fiat now that he is under FBI investigation himself. Perhaps he will be able to get his “voting rights” back after his criminal case is complete.

Another Baltimore Police Officer Cleared; Maryland AG, Marilyn Mosby, Shown To Be Unfit For Office

-
Freddie Gray case: Officer Caesar Goodson Jr. not guilty on all charges
“Officer Caesar Goodson Jr., 46, had faced the most serious charges of any of the six officers indicted in Gray's arrest and death last April, including second-degree depraved heart murder. Goodson was also acquitted of three counts of manslaughter, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office.
His acquittal, which comes after Judge Williams considered the charges for three days, throws the rest of the cases into jeopardy. The other officers charged face similar, but lesser accusations.”
-
-
For a third time the serious criminal charges against Baltimore Police Officers in the Freddie Gray case have been shown to be without merit.
-
The Maryland State's Attorney, Marilyn Mosby, has been exposed as an over-zealous charlatan who abused her office and should be impeached and then sued by the wrongfully persecuted police officers.
(Editorial note: persecution is the correct term for abusive prosecution)
Blindly following Obama’s anti-police crusade should not be the basis for state AG’s or local district attorneys to persecute those officers who are lawfully carrying out their duties on behalf of public safety.
-
The personification of Mosby’s malfeasance focused on the knife Freddy Gray possessed when he was arrested.
The arresting officers stated the knife was an illegal concealed weapon.
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/05/05/baltimore-cop-claims-freddie-gray-knife-illegal/26950303/
Mosby says the knife was legal and therefore Gray should not have been arrested and that his injury and death was on the arresting officers.   For the past year Mosby has refused to publicly show the knife or make it available to defense attorneys.
Why is she hiding this knife?  Why hasn't she entered it into evidence?

Prior Cases:  Baltimore Abuse Of Prosecutorial Power In Freddie Gray Case
Freddie Gray: Prosecutor criticized after officer acquittal
BALTIMORE (AP) — After two trials and no convictions, Baltimore's top prosecutor is facing criticism that she moved too quickly to file charges against six officers in the death of Freddie Gray without first ensuring there was enough evidence to bring them to bear.
The judge overseeing the cases — in his verdict Monday acquitting the latest officer to stand trial in the death of the African-American man — said the state failed to prove its case on any of the charges.

Twenty Virtual-Warheads Launched Into Orbit From One Missile

-
India sends 20 satellites into orbit in historic launch
India successfully launched a record 20 satellites aboard its Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket late on Tuesday
ISRO confirmed that, after a flight of 16 minutes and 30 seconds, the fourth stage of the rocket reached orbit 316 miles above the Earth at an angle of 97.5 degrees to the equator, close to the satellites’ intended orbit. “In the succeeding 10 minutes, all the 20 satellites successfully separated from the PSLV fourth stage in a predetermined sequence,”
-
-
This launch highlights and validates the ability of other countries to launch major simultaneous nuclear weapons upon other countries within 30 minutes from launch of a single missile.
We have lived with this threat from Russia for over 50 years.  Now, through missile and nuclear weapons proliferation, the risk has been extended to other countries like China, North Korea and Iran.
-
But not to worry – Obama and his minions scrapped our Strategic Defense Initiative SDI, Anti-missile systems,  Development and Implementation, calling it Reagan's Star Wars.

Progressives Continue To Undermine Public School Education

-
The Progressive dumbing-down of our public schools is now being accelerated by a focused crusade by organizations to destroy the “teaching-learning” environment in the name of reducing their so called “school to prison” pipeline.
-
Here in Virginia this crusade is headed by McAuliffe, directed by the Virginia Legal Aid Justice Center and aided-and-abetted by Liberal Media outlets like the Roanoke Times.
-
The following excerpts from a significant article on this issue should come to the awareness of all those interested in the success of our public schools and students.
Those directly involved in the teaching and administration of our public schools should peruse the entire article and reflect on how this crusade is having and will have major negative impacts on our schools and students.
-
Blind to the Truth About School Violence
-
“The Advancement Project, a civil rights advocacy group, has a very clear goal. It wants to promote its own brand of progressive racial justice -- and banish effective discipline in public schools across the U.S.
-
Instead of addressing challenges in the families, homes, and communities of minority groups that cry out for improvement, it is easier and more progressively palatable for the government and the Advancement Project to charge overburdened public schools with changing their own discipline policies -- at taxpayer expense.
-
"Specifically, as politically incorrect as it may be to say so, the black community gets involved with law enforcement at a higher rate than the white community," Ridenour continued. "Part of the reason for this is that black kids are more likely than white kids to come from unstable homes. The data is clear that kids who don't come from homes in which they live with their own married parents are more likely to drop out or to have disciplinary issues. The schools can't control this. All they can do is try to deal with it."
In trying to destroy the much-touted "school-to-prison pipeline," progressive educational efforts instead destroy the teachers' authority, which is obviously crucial to any learning environment.
Even worse, teachers have been asked to examine their own "white privilege" when addressing the discipline of minority students.
"If you tell a black kid that if you work hard you can achieve anything you set your mind to, that's racist, because you are perpetuating a myth of meritocracy," Dan Chriestenson, a two-term school board member from Oregon's Gresham-Barlow school district, told EAGnews.”

Obama Deletes The Orlando Radical Muslim Terrorist’s 911 ISIS Statements

-
Obama Deletes The Orlando Radical Muslim Terrorist 911 ISIS Statements --- wouldn’t want to upset his Muslim brothers and sisters.
Imagine the Obama coverage if the killer had claimed KKK membership! 
-
-
“Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on Sunday that the FBI will delete mentions of ISIS when they release transcripts of the 911 calls Omar Mateen made during his attack on an Orlando nightclub.”
-
-
“'I did the shootings': DOJ releases some redacted transcripts of Orlando killer's phone calls during massacre”
“House Speaker Paul Ryan called on the Obama administration Monday to "release the full, unredacted transcript" of the Orlando massacre gunman’s 911 calls, slamming the Justice Department’s censoring of all references to Islam as "preposterous."”
“Mateen is known from prior FBI statements to have pledged allegiance to the ISIS chief and expressed solidarity with other terrorists. But Monday's release deleted all of those references.”
-
-
Yahoo – NYPost:  Why did the White House just humiliate AG Loretta Lynch?
“Idiotic: That’s the only word for the Obama administration’s move to scrub references to Islam or ISIS from the transcripts of Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen’s calls.
Under an avalanche of ridicule, the Justice Department on Monday relented and released the full transcripts. But what was the point? Everyone already knew that he’d pledged allegiance to ISIS and its “caliph.””

Obama Fails Earth Science 101: Ignorant Or Charlatan Or Both?

- 
Roanoke Times, 6-19-2016, Pg 1, 3:  Obama talks climate change at Yosemite.
-
-
Obama hyping the Gore-AGW man-made global warming impacts on the National Parks, oblivious to the reality of massive NATURAL global warming and climate change, the only kind so far.
-
Standing in front of Sentinel Bridge, Obama opined over the vast glacier that is now almost gone.  Did it ever occur to him what kind of Natural Park he would be standing in under 4,000-feet of ice?
-
Does Obama not know that the Ice Age Glaciation of the Northern Hemisphere has been almost wiped-out by NATURAL global warming (long before there was any man-made anything!) – and what a good thing for man-kind!
-
Does he not know that there has been a Medieval Warm Period and then a Little Ice Age since the end of the Ice Age?
-
Does he not know that the NATURAL global warming that ended the Little Ice Age circa 1750 is still with us today?
-
Has Obama not taken his daughters to see the Disney “Ice Age” Series:
Ice Age is a 2002 American computer-animated buddy comedy adventure film directed by Chris ... It was followed by three sequels, including Ice Age: The Meltdown in 2006, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs in 2009, and Ice Age: Continental Drift in 2012
-
What is wrong with a President of the United States who is such a demigod that he would stand in front of the world and proclaim that he is either ignorant or a charlatan or both?
-
But this isn't the bad news!
The bad news is that Obama is talking to a world so educationally-challenged that most of his subjects believe his totally corrupt words and DoubleSpeak!
Just More Hope and Change We Can Believe In!

Ice Age Glaciation of Yosemite Valley
Glaciers played a major role in determining the landscape and features of Yosemite National Park. During the Great Ice Age portions of the Park were covered by glacial advances at least three times. These glaciers, along with stream erosion and mechanical weathering, deepened Yosemite Valley, widened it and produced the extremely steep valley walls.

Kerry Visits Arctic And Views Results Of Natural Climate Changes

-
Kerry tours Arctic Circle to see climate change impact
NY-ALESUND, Norway (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday visited Norway's extreme north, viewing areas where climate change has melted ice and opened new sea lanes.”
-
-
Unfortunately Kerry and entourage chose to view glacier-icebergs that lack the historic history necessary to understand the natural global temperature and climate changes of the past 300 years.
-
They should have visited Norway’s land based glaciers where there are factual data to demonstrate that glaciers in the Northern Hemisphere started massive retreats as part of the natural warming that  ended The Little Ice Age and continues today with minimal help from man-kind’s CO2 that is in-addition-to natures massive CO2.
-
 -
-
-
-

-
Then Kerry could visit Mendenhall Glacier in Alaska, one of the most vivid and most documented examples of the same natural warming with the same history.
Obama Avoids Mendenhall Glacier’s Lessons On “Natural” Global Warming
-
-
Then Kerry could visit Nisqually Glacier in Washington State,  another vivid and well documented example of natural warming with the same history.
-
-
-
Kerry could visit Glacier National Park but the 4,000-foot deep Glaciers there were gone long before man-kind started burning fossil fuels. Old Faithful is still there and represents the reality that glaciers don’t do well when sitting on-top-of volcanoes, as is well demonstrated today in both Ice Land and Green Land.
-
It’s interesting that the AGW-Alarmist community refuse to acknowledge the facts and reality that the climate is changing because the climate has always been changing and there is marginal evidence that man-kind is making a significant difference to the massive changes that nature makes and has made for hundreds of thousands of years.
-
There is more than adequate reason to be Skeptical about the Gore-AGW Hypothesis and the claims that emanate from that hypothesis.

Arctic Report  -
The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at Bergen, Norway
 -
Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.  Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.
 -
Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.  Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.
 -
Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.  Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.
-

I must apologize; I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post - 93 years ago  --- well before there was any significant man-made CO2!
