NY Post Flashes Revealing Photo Of Melania Trump

-
“The New York Post slapped a nude photo of Melania Trump on the front page of its Sunday issue over the weekend.”
-
Actually not quite nude – but very revealing – not as much as the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and modest compared to Oslo’s Vigeland Park.
-
We anticipate that the National Organization of Women NOW will jump to Melania’s defense.  This is an outrage and attack against all women whatever their circumstance.
NOW would consider this indiscretion tantamount to the stripping of Vanessa Williams of her Miss America Crown after compromising pictures of her were published.
Unfortunately beautiful young aspiring models are routinely compromised.
-
How strange for a NY paper where Gov. Cuomo and his Democratic Legislature passed a NY State Law making it totally legal for any woman to go topless any place in NY that a man can go topless!
-
With the current Progressive-Liberal mandates that men can share the ladies-room, locker-room and showers with the women – what’s the big deal?
-
Lots of nontraditional things are happening in this election cycle – but – one thing is for sure:
No one is going to publish pictures of Hillary nude!

Hillary Jilted By The Russians – Another Woman Scorned

-
Clinton: 'We know' Russia was behind DNC email hack
-
Hillary is mad at the Russians and is claiming that Trump is in cahoots with them in a conspiracy to hack her stuff!
Yet again Hillary involved in a conspiracy – imagine that!
What's the big deal anyway -- she swore under oath that the 30,000 Emails were just about yoga and wedding plans!
-
Just who has the “relationship” with Putin and the Russians?
Who did nothing when Putin grabbed Crimea?
Who did nothing when Putin grabbed a land corridor to Crimea across Ukraine?
Who has done nothing to thwart the Russian invasion and war in Syria?
Who has done nothing to stymie the Russian expansion into the Arctic?
And most of all --- who claimed “mission accomplished establishing a new wonderful relationship with Russia” with the Big Red Reset Button?

UN records highest casualties in eastern Ukraine in a year
“MOSCOW (AP) — The United Nations says the number of casualties in fighting in eastern Ukraine is back to last year's highs.
Fighting between Russia-backed separatists and government troops has killed over 9,500 people since it began in 2014 and left much of Ukraine's industrial heartland in ruins.”

The Massive UVa Hidden $2.3 BILLION Slush Fund In Perspective

-
Roanoke Times, 7-31-2016, Pg 1, 6:  Helen Dragas And The UVa $2.3 BILLION Slush Fund
-
Helen Dragas, we remember her as the member of the Board of Visitors who made a noble attempt to oust Queen Sullivan the UVa President.
Unfortunately the ouster was thwarted by a massive Liberal-Progressive Jihad to keep the Queen on the throne.  The folly of that move was highlighted by Sullivan’s pathetic and despicable performance in the Rolling Stone caper during which she threw the entire male population of UVa under the Politically Correct NOW bus.
-
Now Dragas has discovered a massive hidden $2.3 BILLION Slush Fund that was hidden by Queen Sullivan and her minions and cohorts.
-
Let’s put this little slush fund in perspective:
-
It’s TEN TIMES BIGGER than the newly announced $266 million state budget shortfall!
McAuliffe announces $266 million shortfall in Virginia budget
RICHMOND — Virginia finished its fiscal year $266 million in the red as payroll- and sales-tax receipts lagged below expectations, Gov. Terry McAuliffe said Friday.
-
It’s enough “extra” money to educate UVa’s entire in-state undergraduate student body for 16 years!
Wow!  Bernie was right!  Free college education for everyone in Virginia!
-
Clearly this massive issue deserves both an administrative and a criminal investigation, 
but it’s UVa – let’s just “Fuhgeddaboudit”!
-
This malfeasance is almost as disturbing as the UVa Michael Mann FOIA stonewalling fiasco in which UVa spent hundreds of thousands of dollars fighting to keep the taxpayers from seeing Mann’s totally debunked so called “Hockey Stick” data that was the basic for Gore’s Inconvenient UnTruth and Obama’s totally misdirected energy mess.  The taxpayers paid for it, but they can’t see it, but it's the basis for our national energy policy!  How sad is that!
-

-
Lawmakers urge UVa to freeze tuition while dispute over $2.3 billion fund is sorted out
“Two state senators Tuesday urged the University of Virginia to freeze tuition while they sort out how the university was able to convert surplus revenue into a $2.3 billion investment fund.”

The Obama-Hillary Anemic And Feeble Economy

-
The May 2016 Jobs News was a disaster:
We didn’t see that highlighted in the Pravda Media
We didn’t see that highlighted at Hillary’s Convention
Obama says the economy is very good!  Good for who?
Hillary’s running on Obama’s Legacy?  How sad is that?
-
US created 38,000 jobs in May vs. 162,000 expected
-
US weekly jobless claims total 259,000 vs 270,000 estimate
-
That means we LOST  221,000 jobs in May 2016
-
-
Record 94,708,000 Americans Not in Labor Force; Participation Rate Drops in May to 62.6%
“The labor force participation rate dropped two-tenths of a point to 62.6 percent, near its 38-year low, the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday.”

-
-
The U.S. Economy is Sucking Wind
“During the second-quarter 2016 GDP rose just 1.2% below the 2.6% economists were expecting.”
-
What Happened to Business Investment in 2Q?
“Perhaps the biggest shock to Wall Street was the sharp drop in inventory building from American businesses. Digging into the data, non-residential fixed investment dropped at a 2.2% annualized rate in the quarter, shaving 0.28 percentage point off of GDP, while the total change in private inventories erased 1.16 percentage point from 2Q GDP.”

Six Baltimore Police Exonerated In Anti-Police Gray Case

-
New News 8-1-2016:
Law professor goes after Maryland prosecutor for Freddie Gray case
“A law professor with a history of taking prosecutors to task has set his sights on the Baltimore state’s attorney, who failed in her bid to put six cops in prison in connection with the racially-charged death of Freddie Gray.

George Washington University law professor John Banzhaf has filed complaints against Marilyn Mosby with the Attorney Grievance Commission of Maryland. He alleges Mosby and two deputies committed ethics violations, used “fraudulent or misleading tactics," withheld evidence from the defense and brought charges without probable cause against the Baltimore police officers involved in the April 12, 2015 arrest of Gray, who died of injuries suffered inside a police van.”
-
-
Baltimore prosecutors drop all remaining charges in Freddie Gray case
“BALTIMORE — Prosecutors on Wednesday dropped all charges against the three officers awaiting trial in the Freddie Gray case, effectively closing the books on the high-profile case and leaving the state without a conviction in the 25-year-old’s arrest and death, which sparked protests and riots in the city last year.”
-
-
This case is the epitome of the current anti-police crusade that has been orchestrated from Obama and down to the local Black Lives Matter gangs.
-
District Attorney, Mosby, indicted six police officers in Gray’s unfortunate demise, without even a semblance of proof of her charges or the minimal effort of presenting her case to a grand jury.
-
Mosby was pulled into mob mentality by Baltimore Mayor Rawlings-Blake who told rioters (not protesters) to burn-down buildings in downtown and told police to stand-down and just watch.
-
Sadly this Anti-Police Crusade is being empowered today by the DNC at Hillary’s Convention – how sad it that!

Tim Kaine’s Wife Resigns As Virginia Secretary of Education

-
-
-
-
Many Virginians didn’t know that Ann Holton, Virginia’s Secretary of Education is the wife of Tim Kaine.  It’s interesting that this is being made very visible now that she has resigned.
There was never any need to be bashful – nepotism can be a good thing – especially when it benefits you.
-
For Example:  What did NBC News’s Chelsea Clinton do for her $600,000 salary her first job out of school?https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/erik-wemple/wp/2014/06/13/what-did-nbc-newss-chelsea-clinton-do-for-her-600000-salary/
-
Relative to Mrs. Kaine's performance as Secretary of Education one may wonder how does the serious accusations by “The “Virginia LegalAid Justice Center’s JustChildren Program” that ‘our schools are a pipeline to prison’ reflect on Mrs. Kaine’s stewardship and education of our children?
-
These accusations were recently the focus of two big exposés by the Roanoke Times:
(1) Roanoke Times Doubles-Down On Denigrating Roanoke Schools
-
(2) Despicable Roanoke Times School Headline And Content
-
It might be helpful if Mrs. Ann Holden Kaine were to share with the parents, teachers and administrators of Virginia’s schools what her actions have been to address these very serious allegations and what should be done by others going forward.

Anti-Police Crusade Continues At Hillary’s Convention

-
Black Lives Matter movement in the spotlight at Democratic convention
“The eight women, known as "Mothers of the Movement", were greeted by chants of "Black Lives Matter" as they took the stage”
-
It is indeed sad to loose a loved one to violence.
It is particularly sad when the death could have been avoided by simply following the rules ALL people are required to follow:
-
When approached by police – do exactly what they tell you to do – nothing more or less
It is a felony to fight with police or threaten them or resist arrest
You can sue the police for transgressions after the judicial system process completes
If you are a protected class – the DOJ will investigate the incident for you
-
It is disturbing that the BLM has become a violent anti-police entity and yet they are being highlighted at Hillary’s Convention.
The “Black Lives Matter” Gang Chanting:
'Pigs in a blanket - Fry Em like bacon' chant at Minnesota Fair

Moment of silence for fallen cops marred by jeering at DNC convention

A hard-won moment of silence for fallen police officers Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention was marred by chants from the crowd of “black lives matter!” in an ugly moment that angered law enforcement representatives and underscored the anti-cop climate that has gripped the nation.

Roanoke Greets Trump

-
Roanoke Times, 7-26-2016, Pg 1, 4, 5, 7:
Trump fires up Roanoke crowd
Roanoke gets taste of fevered campaign
Trump criticized Kaine’s record as Va Governor
Opposing crowds chant civilly
Sanders backers not happy with Kaine
Hundreds of Pro-Sanders march in Philly  -- 50 arrested
-
Pg Va Pg 1, 2:  Heat at hotel was too much for Trump – Special by Dan Casey
Pg 5: Editorial:  Trump’s brilliance (with much tongue-in-cheek)
-
-
The Trump coverage in the RT was robust and reasonably OK given the usual slant of the Roanoke Times editorial team and their commitment to Obama, Hillary and the DNC.
Lot’s of OK pictures and fair view of pro-con-protesters.
Perhaps the Bernie, Wasserman, Email and rebellion fiasco took the edge off their quills.
-
Of interest and some entertainment was Dan Casey’s expose on the Roanoke Hotel air-conditioning fiasco.  Clearly Trump was disturbed that 1500 of his supporters were stuck in a sauna at 90 degrees and 80 percent humidity in a 5-star facility he had paid BIG money to rent for the day.  Trump made his displeasure very plain from his view as well as on behalf of his supporters who were clearly mistreated –
He Was Their Voice!
-
Casey likes to do roll-playing scenarios – so here’s one:
Casey books a first-class suite honeymoon package at the Roanoke for him and his lovely spouse for their anniversary.  The room is at 90 degrees and 80 percent humidity.  His spouse is understandably not happy, but, Dan refuses to complain or ask for a rate adjustment because after all, this is THE Roanoke Hotel and Dan wouldn’t want to be proactive and thereby distract from his mild and meek image.  Really?  I think Not!

Pravda Media Burying Sanders Supporters

-
Roanoke Times, 7-25-2016, Pg 4, Small article buried in the chaff: Sanders supporters rally at convention.
“Thousands of demonstrators took to Philadelphia’s sweltering streets Sunday”
“Throngs of Bernie Sanders supporters marched down a main thoroughfare to show support for Bernie and disdain for Hillary”
“”Chanting Hell No, DNC, we won’t vote for Hillary”
And "This is what democracy looks like”
-
Why wasn’t this on page one instead of the half-page coverage of a kid tracking a snake?
What great headline opportunities with BIG pictures.
Priorities?  Bias?  Slant?  Doing all we can do for our girl!

Hillary Immediately Brings Disgraced DNC Chair Onto Her Campaign!
Like President Obama, Hillary offers no apology or even acknowledgment that it was wrong of the DNC to rig the election against Senator Sanders. Instead, she praises DWS and gives her a new job. ON HER CAMPAIGN.If that isn't a middle finger to the Bernie Sanders voters, I don't know what is.”

Roanoke Teachers Leaving “The School To Prison Pipeline”

-
Roanoke Times, 7-24-2016, Pg 1, 9:  Pressure at workplace and workplace culture takes toll on Roanoke city’s teachers – major burnout and turnover
Pg 9:  Teacher Shortage evident across Roanoke and Va.
-
The primary reason for major teacher turnover in Roanoke is painted as the Superintendent’s fault.  She’s acting like a warden.  Seems appropriate, after all, the Roanoke Times and their partners at The “Virginia LegalAid Justice Center’s JustChildren Program have labeled Roanoke Schools as a pipeline to prison.
https://www.justice4all.org/justchildren/justchildren-program/
-
A mitigating factor in the teacher turnover is stated as too much tops down demands from staff.  This is understandable given the flow of “wisdom” from Obama’s DOE down to McAuliffe’s DOE (Tim Kaine’s Wife in-charge), down to the local school board and then down to the teachers where conflicting objectives and processes meet the reality of teaching 30+ students in a politically-correct dysfunctional teaching-learning environment.
-
Perhaps the “teacher leaving” issues include: teachers are working in a hostile disrespectful classroom environment, accused of being a key part of the school-to-prison pipeline, expected to have all the students pass the SOL’s and be the on-site Social Worker repairing the dismal home-life many children suffer.
Roanoke Times Doubles-Down On Denigrating Roanoke Schools
-
Is it any wonder that teachers, who started their teaching education and career wanting to help children and society, become disillusioned and burned-out and seek other careers!
-
Perhaps a productive thing would be for the over three-dozen highly educated folks at the Virginia LegalAid Justice Center’s JustChildren Program 
to come out of their Charlottesville Ivory Tower and come-on-down to Roanoke and help teach our children, show us how it’s done and how to end your so-called “school to prison” pipeline.
Having the editors of the Roanoke Times substitute one day a week would also be helpful on multiple levels.

Wiley: Bishop instrumental to Roanoke schools -- 8-4-2016
