McAuliffe And The Hypocrisy Of Ethics

-
New News 4-3-2015, Pg Va 1, 8: McAuliffe stonewalls Federal Ethics Investigators both by phone and Email.
The query appears to be an extension of the investor-visa program that the Homeland AIG described as having "an appearance of special access".
Isn't that what the McDonnell's were charged with? Did they have the "option" to opt-out of that investigation?  Where is the DOJ and the Grand Jury?
-
-
Roanoke Times, 3-28-2015, Pg Va 1,4:  McAuliffe seeks ethics bill revisions
The governor said General Assembly members should adopt his self-imposed “common sense” $100 gift limit.

Report cites favoritism for Terry McAuliffe and brother of Hillary Clinton
http://www.politico.com/story/2015/03/report-cites-favoritism-for-terry-mcauliffe-and-brother-of-hillary-clinton-116370.html

-
 “A Department of Homeland Security watchdog report issued Tuesday blasted the agency’s No. 2 official for repeatedly intervening on behalf of well-connected participants in an investor-visa program, including Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-Va.) and Tony Rodham, a brother of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
-
The inspector general report faults Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas for creating “an appearance of favoritism and special access” as a result of highly unusual steps he took while serving as director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which oversaw the investment-based program known as EB-5.”
-
Where’s this story in the Roanoke Times?

They sure had lots of print space for the Bob and Maureen McDonnell saga.

UVa President Triggered The ABC Charlottesville Take-down Incident

-
Roanoke Times, 3-26-2015, Pg 8:  UVa president says ABC should focus on sellers (of alcohol to underage students)
Establishments are the real culprits, she said.
“I asked the governor back in the fall to come and investigate the liquor establishments here because I was concerned they were serving underage students,” Sullivan said.
-
So, the Governors sends his ABC agents to check the bars and those entering them at the bequest of the UVa President.
Ostensibly, they observed a student being turned away from a bar after showing ID.
-
Good News: the bar in-question was checking for the 21 year-old law.
Ostensibly, the ABC agents approached the turned-away student to question him about the ID he had just used to try to validate his age.
-
Bad News: ABC agents not OK with students behavior when questioned.
-
Really Bad News: student arrested and physically put down on ground and hand-cuffed.
-
Incredibly Bad News: Student yells Racism, Media goes Postal, Governor sends ABC agents to remedial racial-sensitivity class.
-
Let’s recap:
UVa President asks Governor to check-up on liquor-serving establishments.
Governor sends State ABC agents to do the check-up (it’s their job already).
Agents investigate what appears to be real-time fake ID incident.
Agents arrest UVa student (a male of color from Chicago – why are we not surprised) for really bad behavior toward law enforcement officers in the conduct of their duties.
UVa President, Governor and Media all jump-on the ABC agents.
What’s wrong with this picture?
-
Probable outcomes:
ABC agents get reprimanded.
UVa student to be coddled (Bless His Heart!).
Beer Joints continue to be on-guard for both tricksters and agents.
UVa President plays the victim and continues to have job security.
Students over 21 continue to buy beer by the case and share with all.
McAuliffe to be honored by NAACP.

Hillary Learned Key Legal Lesson From Nixon

-
Gowdy: Clinton wiped email server clean, deleted all emails
http://news.yahoo.com/gowdy-clinton-wiped-email-server-clean-deleted-emails-230702244--politics.html
-
The Lesson:  It’s better to obstruct justice by destroying potential evidence than it is to comply with subpoenas and scrutiny.
-
Nixon did not wipe-clean the Oval Office Audio Tapes and as a result, incriminating comments on the tapes were used to force him from office.
-
Hillary apparently has wiped-clean her server that she used for four years as Sec of State for all her Emails personal and official.
No wonder she now is joking about this in her quarter million dollar fund raising séances.
-
Apparently the only thing left on her server is “the video” that caused Benghazi.
-
Bill also learned the same lesson.  He “recalled” all the gifts but missed that “damn dress” fiasco.
-
Isn’t it fun getting back into the Clinton Games again!

Army Brass Finally Got Brass for Bergdahl

-
New Bergdahl News 4-8-2015:
NCIS investigation  (in 2009 - 6 years ago)  reportedly shows Bergdahl had 'deliberate plan' to 'offer himself up' to the Taliban
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/04/07/ncis-report-on-bowe-bergdahl-raises-new-questions/

Bergdahl charged with desertion, could face life in prison
-
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was “captured” by the Taliban after abandoning his post in Afghanistan and then freed five years later in a controversial trade for five Guantanamo detainees, was charged Wednesday with desertion. 
U.S. Army Forces Command announced the decision at Fort Bragg in North Carolina
He was charged with misbehavior before the enemy, which carries a maximum sentence of up to life in prison. He was also charged with desertion, which carries a maximum of five years. 
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/03/25/bergdahl-to-be-charged-with-desertion-official-says/

-
Life in Prison – not that bad when compared to:  Pvt Edward Donald Slovik  whose "life sentence" was cut short by a firing squad.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2015/01/tale-of-two-deserters-eisenhower-and.html
-
Susan Rice, National Security Advisor to Obama, described Bergdahl’s service as honorable and with distinction in response to questions about negotiating ith terrorists and the prisoner swap.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdGe0uP7W-c
At least she didn't claim Bergdahl went AWOL because of a video!

Obama’s Pathetic Response To Russian Cold War Revival

-
Apparently, Obama has developed a Howard Hughes Isolation Phobia. 
After the World Apology Tours now Obama refuses to meet with major world leaders.
Shunning Netanyahu was a Obama tantrum based on getting push-back to his Iran Nuc initiative. The Man wants input from “Yes Men” not honest input and feedback and alternatives and certainly NOT criticism.

Obama Snubs NATO Chief as Crisis Rages

Shunning the NATO Chief is unacceptable and deplorable at a time when Putin has made major advances into Georgia and the Ukraine and is continuing that aggression with Russian troops and massive heavy weapons.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2008/09/who-are-bad-guys.html

Apparently Obama’s open-mike comment about his flexibility with Putin has come home to roost on the heads of former Soviet slave-states.

The Story Behind The Ted Cruz At Liberty Lynchburg Story

-
Ted Cruz announced, at Liberty University, that he is seeking the Republican nomination for President.
-
Based on his TeaParty base, it is appropriate that Cruz would come to Lynchburg, the epicenter of the Virginia TeaParty Leadership, to make his announcement.  Apparently Texas isn't Conservative enough.
-
Cruz did not highlight at the announcement the recent Virginia political outcomes resulting from the TeaParty Leadership’s take-over of the Republican Party of Virginia RPV.
He didn’t mention that the Democrats now have the Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General and both US Senators.
-
Nor did he mention the VaTeaParty Leadership’s successful political-assassination of Conservative Republican Congressman Eric Cantor.
He also didn’t reveal the current target list of other Republican Office holders who do not salute the snake-banner nor swear allegiance to the TeaParty’s self-anointed Leaders.  Apparently it’s not about being Conservative enough or governing, it’s all about control and ideology.
-
Cruz joins his friend Santorum and the other TeaParty Leadership entities whose claim to fame was using the primary process to mortally wound the last two national Republican Tickets by placing ideology above selecting candidates who can be elected and then govern. 
-
Cruz’s team is oblivious to the reality that Republican Candidates must win the votes of almost all Republicans, most Independents and many Regan-Democrats.  Their mantra is “it’s my way or the highway”.  The result is that Republican’s now sit on the bleachers watching the Progressives control our government while we pay the resultant taxes and endure the ever-increasing encroachment upon our freedoms.
-
It has been sad to watch a once vibrant and successful Republican Party reduced to a few slogans, bumper-stickers and snake-banners with the resultant loss of representation in the political process.
There’s something sad about self-inflected wounds and misdirected hostility!  Especially when it benefits Obama, Reid, Pelosi and the DNC!

Obama -- Get Over Your Netanyahu Tantrums And Get To Work

-
A long pro-Obama dissertation about Obama’s tantrums over Netanyahu.
Not a word about the 367 House lawmakers letter warning Obama on Iran!
Washington (CNN)A veto-proof, bipartisan majority of House lawmakers have signed an open letter to President Barack Obama warning him that any nuclear deal with Iran will effectively require congressional approval for implementation.
http://www.cnn.com/2015/03/23/politics/house-letter-obama-iran/
-
What a change compared to the other Obama tantrum over the letter 45 Senators sent to the Radical Muslim Terrorist Ayatollah, highlighting that agreements are not treaty’s and the next President will also have a pen and a cell-phone.   Obama and his Pravda Press had tons to say about that.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2015/03/iran-and-righteous-indignation-of.html
-
In the meantime, Obama made a pathetic video address to the people of Iran enlisting their support for a nuclear-weapons agreement.  Since when do the people of Iran have any say or influence on government policy or actions?
-
Didn’t see any headlines in the Roanoke Times on the Ayatollah’s response to Obama’s cowering video:
Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for “Death to America” on Saturday, a day after President Barack Obama appealed to Iran to seize a “historic opportunity” for a nuclear deal and a better future, and as US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed substantial progress toward an accord.

Farming Award To Dr Doolittle?

-
Roanoke Times, 3-22-2015, Pg Bus. 1, 5: Hog heaven; Concord pig farmer lands top animal welfare certification.
Page and half,  including BIG idyllic pictures of pigs following their “farmer friend”.
http://www.roanoke.com/business/news/concord-pig-farmer-lands-top-animal-welfare-certification/article_33e3ea2f-ab05-5a97-b7dc-2acaa858022c.html
-
With all due respect, and I don’t mean this in a bad way – BUT – a major spread in the “Business” section of a very nice person who has some tame animals as members of the family being portrayed as a “farmer”?  This is a pseudo Dr Doolittle story and he is clearly not a real “business farmer”.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_Dolittle
-
Our American FARMERS are feeding our 330 Million people with the best and ample food supply the world has ever experienced,  plus millions more off-shore.  They do this with real farming tools, processes, technology and massive investments and great business risk.  They don’t have a drove or a sounder following them around like house pets.
-
Perhaps we can cover the Dr Doolittles of Virginia under Pets R-Us and cover some of our amazing Real Farms in the Business Section.
If you enjoy your freedoms,  thank a soldier.
If you enjoy your meals, thank a real farmer.

-
A very crisp view of many people’s dim view of “some of the actions” by PETA and HSUS. 
These organizations are often quick to attack, with major media support, people and organizations who have a major animal component within their scope.
It appears they have the idyllic and very distorted view that things in the wild are nice and kind and that life on the farm or in a zoo are not OK based on their very existence.
The facts in this particular case are not yet clear.  What is clear that the Natural Bridge Zoo and it’s owners have been lynched in the press without due process.

Greenpeace Founder A Man-cause Global Warming AGW Skeptic

-
Why I am a Climate Change Skeptic   March 20, 2015
-
http://news.heartland.org/newspaper-article/2015/03/20/why-i-am-climate-change-skeptic
-
Editor’s Note: Patrick Moore, Ph.D., has been a leader in international environmentalism for more than 40 years. He cofounded Greenpeace and currently serves as chair of Allow Golden Rice. Moore received the 2014 Speaks Truth to Power Award at the Ninth International Conference on Climate Change, July 8, in Las Vegas.
Click to Watch a video of  his presentation
-
I am skeptical humans are the main cause of climate change and that it will be catastrophic in the near future. There is no scientific proof of this hypothesis, yet we are told “the debate is over” and “the science is settled.”
-
My skepticism begins with the believers’ certainty they can predict the global climate with a computer model. The entire basis for the doomsday climate change scenario is the hypothesis increased atmospheric carbon dioxide due to fossil fuel emissions will heat the Earth to unlivable temperatures.
-
In fact, the Earth has been warming very gradually for 300 years, since the Little Ice Age ended, long before heavy use of fossil fuels. Prior to the Little Ice Age, during the Medieval Warm Period, Vikings colonized Greenland and Newfoundland, when it was warmer there than today. And during Roman times, it was warmer, long before fossil fuels revolutionized civilization.
-
The idea it would be catastrophic if carbon dioxide were to increase and average global temperature were to rise a few degrees is preposterous.
Recently, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) announced for the umpteenth time we are doomed unless we reduce carbon-dioxide emissions to zero. Effectively this means either reducing the population to zero, or going back 10,000 years before humans began clearing forests for agriculture. This proposed cure is far worse than adapting to a warmer world, if it actually comes about.
-
IPCC Conflict of Interest
By its constitution, the IPCC has a hopeless conflict of interest. Its mandate is to consider only the human causes of global warming, not the many natural causes changing the climate for billions of years. We don’t understand the natural causes of climate change any more than we know if humans are part of the cause at present. If the IPCC did not find humans were the cause of warming, or if it found warming would be more positive than negative, there would be no need for the IPCC under its present mandate. To survive, it must find on the side of the apocalypse.
The IPCC should either have its mandate expanded to include all causes of climate change, or it should be dismantled.
-
Political Powerhouse
Climate change has become a powerful political force for many reasons. First, it is universal; we are told everything on Earth is threatened. Second, it invokes the two most powerful human motivators: fear and guilt. We fear driving our car will kill our grandchildren, and we feel guilty for doing it.
-
Third, there is a powerful convergence of interests among key elites that support the climate “narrative.” Environmentalists spread fear and raise donations; politicians appear to be saving the Earth from doom; the media has a field day with sensation and conflict; science institutions raise billions in grants, create whole new departments, and stoke a feeding frenzy of scary scenarios; business wants to look green, and get huge public subsidies for projects that would otherwise be economic losers, such as wind farms and solar arrays. Fourth, the Left sees climate change as a perfect means to redistribute wealth from industrial countries to the developing world and the UN bureaucracy.
-
So we are told carbon dioxide is a “toxic” “pollutant” that must be curtailed, when in fact it is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, gas and the most important food for life on earth. Without carbon dioxide above 150 parts per million, all plants would die.
-
Human Emissions Saved Planet
Over the past 150 million years, carbon dioxide had been drawn down steadily (by plants) from about 3,000 parts per million to about 280 parts per million before the Industrial Revolution. If this trend continued, the carbon dioxide level would have become too low to support life on Earth. Human fossil fuel use and clearing land for crops have boosted carbon dioxide from its lowest level in the history of the Earth back to 400 parts per million today.
-
At 400 parts per million, all our food crops, forests, and natural ecosystems are still on a starvation diet for carbon dioxide. The optimum level of carbon dioxide for plant growth, given enough water and nutrients, is about 1,500 parts per million, nearly four times higher than today. Greenhouse growers inject carbon-dioxide to increase yields. Farms and forests will produce more if carbon-dioxide keeps rising.
-
We have no proof increased carbon dioxide is responsible for the earth’s slight warming over the past 300 years. There has been no significant warming for 18 years while we have emitted 25 per cent of all the carbon dioxide ever emitted. Carbon dioxide is vital for life on Earth and plants would like more of it. Which should we emphasize to our children?
-
Celebrate Carbon Dioxide
The IPCC’s followers have given us a vision of a world dying because of carbon-dioxide emissions. I say the Earth would be a lot deader with no carbon dioxide, and more of it will be a very positive factor in feeding the world. Let’s celebrate carbon dioxide.

60 Minutes Walks All Over Lumber Liquidators, Déjà Vu The GMC Pick-up Debacle

-
Roanoke Times: 3-2-2015
http://www.roanoke.com/news/virginia/minutes-report-accuses-lumber-liquidators-of-selling-illegal-flooring/article_c047dbce-0792-5a14-81e1-7ee7142a0832.html
'60 Minutes' report accuses Lumber Liquidators (Founded in Christiansburg Vaof selling illegal flooring.  Shares of Lumber Liquidators plunged more than 25 percent Monday after a scathing “60 Minutes” report accused the company of selling laminate flooring that contains high levels of formaldehyde.
The 13-minute segment Sunday night claimed that hundreds of thousands of homes across the U.S. may have flooring with formaldehyde levels that exceed regulatory standards.

Some folks in California made claims and filed a lawsuit that flooring manufacturer Lumber Liquidators (Founded in Christiansburg Va) were selling flooring that did not meet industry standards and could make homeowners ill.
Simultaneously a ‘short-stock seller’ (one who bets that a stock will drop in value) shorted Lumber Liquidators. And also simultaneously,  NBC’s 60-minutes jumped-in and did an expose on the allegations with Righteous Condemnation of these bad business people who are jeopardizing peoples health with malice aforethought.
-
The combined actions caused a big decline in stock prices (making the short-seller a lot of money) and initiated negative flooring sales and sparked regulatory actions against the company.
-
After some floor-dust settled it appears that the complainant’s noncompliance testing was in itself in noncompliance with industry and regulatory testing standards.
The jury is still out on all the details; however, it appears that the Stock Market now believes that this was a “red herring” and perhaps is reminiscent of the NBC GMC Pick-up Truck gas tank explosion debacle!

In that case NBC purposely “rigged” a false test with false equipment and false explosives and then played on national TV  a devastating falsified video of a horrific explosion and fire that maligned that model of GMC Pick-up trucks.

And we though that only Pravda did a lot of nasty things!

UVA Student Martese Johnson's Bloody Arrest Sparks Probe, Protests

Gov McAuliffe went on national TV to express great concern about a “rough” arrest of a UVa student who allegedly was under 21 and was trying to enter a bar with a fake ID.
Details and facts are TBD – However, McAuliffe expressed concern about his college age son and daughter being treated that roughly by police.
-
Governor – here’s what you should do TODAY to help minimize the chances that your daughter and son will have this problem.
Sit down with them and explain:
-
Do not try to enter an establishment that requires you be 21 to enter.
Entering under 21 is “Trespassing” and is a violation.
-
Do not obtain or possess fake ID’s.
Especially since 911 authorities become “very alert” to that situation.
-
Do not present fake ID’s to police officers.
That is a significant “crime”!
-
After the above, when police officers are questioning you
Do not get arrogant, disrespectful, and belligerent.
That will cause police officers to reasonably believe you are potentially violent.
-
If a police officer tells you “you are under arrest”
Comply exactly with his instructions and commands.
Resisting arrest is a “serious crime”!
-
IF you have violated all the above advice and rules and laws
Expect to be forcibly put down on the ground and handcuffed
No this is not a 50-shades of grey “love” thing.
Expect to get dirty and perhaps have some bruises and scrapes
That’s the price you pay for all the things you just did that you should not have done!
And No – this is Not Racism!  It’s called the administration of law and order!
-
Now, run along kids and behave and follow the rules and have fun.
-
Governor, it would be appropriate and show real positive leadership for you to go back on national TV and repeat all the above for the benefit of all parents and their children.
