JULY 2017  ARCHIVES


  Media Madams and Adam                                                 7-1-2017



                     Is there a difference between today's Mainstream Media and Street Hookers?  If so, I don't see it.  Journalists and Reporters have prostituted themselves for money. 

                     I remember a time that these folks were held responsible for being truthful, accurate, and bias-free. Their job was to seek out and/or investigate the news and deliver it to the public in a manner that inspired trust. Many of these men and women were willing to put their own safety at risk to "Get" the story and most of what they reported could be perceived as credible, because it usually WAS. 

                     Lying, embellishing, manipulating, sensationalizing, or displaying bias could be grounds for dismissal by the outlet that employed them, and sometimes, even lawsuits. The majority of them were honorable though, and kids used to envy the T.V characters like Jimmy Olsen that led exciting lives chasing the story. How did the media change SO radically, SO quickly? 

                     It happened when the wealthiest Leftists started buying-up the media outlets. From the small-town newspapers, to CNN, from Hollywood's movie companies and the music industry, to today's Social Media sites. Today, most media of all forms, is owned, controlled, and manipulated by the Left. Reporters are now told what to cover and how to report it.  Media is the most powerful influence on earth and it manages the minds of the masses.  You see and hear what they WANT you to, but rarely what you NEED to. 

                      Media manipulation is a lot like the "Feel Good" Pastors like Joel Osteen, who preach about rainbows and unicorns but never talk about the reality of sin's consequences or the future of the unsaved. People just don't WANT to hear hard truths or be made uncomfortable with their own behaviors and life choices, they want their ears tickled. They want to be told that everything is okay, and that a sinful life is acceptable. They want Safe Spaces, and a maternal government that will nurse them through life on the public teat. 

                       That immaturity and dependency are Manna to the Media Moguls who seek to misinform and indoctrinate. They tell the Sheeple what they want to hear and they will follow them anywhere, physically and mentally.

                       Since Obama's first election, the dishonesty and corruption of the media has reached unprecedented levels, and the last election between Hillary and Trump was absolutely the END of American Journalism as we have always known it. WE have failed to hold them accountable just as we have failed to hold our politicians accountable, and the price of our apathy has become all too obvious. We are literally on the brink of a second, Civil War, designed and encouraged by Left-Wing Elitists via the Media. 

                        I often urge my readers to actively seek alternative news outlets and to be discerning when disseminating what they find. We can no longer expect to get both sides of a story by passively accepting what mainstream media force-feeds us. Nor can we expect honesty or accuracy from ANY media source, Left or Right. It's up to those of us who care enough to WANT truth, to dig it UP. 

                        Wikipedia is actually a very good source with reliable statistics and factual information. In its history, Wiki has never once had to print a correction or retraction, and has never been accused of any manipulation. The only drawback is that their information is seldom in-depth, but they DO direct you to sites where you can find more reliable details.  Wiki is a good place to begin. 

                         The media frenzy to cover the Sandy Hook Event drew reporters from all over the country, all anxious to be the one to get that juicy tidbit that none of the others had. The first 48 hours of any catastrophic event, be it real or staged, are always little more than a cacophony of hearsay, rumor, and misinformation. There is just too much to sort out and sift through, too many "Theories" and guesses. 

                          Where Sandy Hook is concerned, the conflicting stories were so prolific and implausible, that the word "Chaos" doesn't come close to describing it. To this day, the alphabet soup of conflicting theories and reports remain exactly that.  Even the so-called "Experts" who were on-scene that day have never gotten their stories straight or in agreement with one another, not the police, not the reporters, not the parents or alleged employees of the school.  The Coroner couldn't even remember his lines or that he wasn't supposed to laugh and joke in the wake of 20+ "murders".  THAT piece of Sandy Hook is probably the strongest evidence that the whole thing was a hoax, and we will delve into that part after we cover Adam Lanza in the coming week.

                            Sometime during this holiday weekend, take a few minutes to look into the "Libor Scandal". That will be very helpful for you when we begin to look closely at the Lanza Family.  Are you keeping your minds open? I hope so, because once we finish this Sandy Hook Study, there will be absolutely zero doubt in your minds that the entire thing was one of the most horrendous and cruel hoaxes ever perpetrated on the American People.   I hope it makes you angry enough to speak out and share the truth.

  Town Board Meeting and FLAGS !!!                                   7-11-2017


                 WOW !!!   Our Flags for the Valley  Fundraiser is already almost at goal in less than 24 hours!  The "Go Fund Me" page had raised $425.00, and at tonight's meeting, I received another donation from Rocky and Claire Brown. We are almost THERE! New Lebanon will have the Red,White, and Blue waving along Rt. 20 THIS summer!  THANK YOU to all who donated, and I will list the names when we are finished-up. 

                  The Town Board is seriously considering expanding this project with me next year to include more flags in town and some in West Lebanon. What a great sight that will be!  A terrific thing to note is that NYSEG and Fairpoint post the flags for FREE .  They feel it is much safer for them to have experienced linemen with proper equipment do the job, and they're right, of course. Still, it's a kind gesture to the communities. 

                      ##################################


                     Tonight's meeting was long and dry, but that is not a complaint. It's so nice to have meetings that are focused on the business of the town and the good of the community instead of having to address constant corruption. Twenty-three people attended, and that's a great sign, especially since we are beginning to see some faces there that we haven't seen there before. It is SO important to take an interest in your community and local government, and I wish we had more high-school students coming to the meetings. Civics MATTERS. 

                    Another piece of good news is that the Eastwick Press has been saved! An employee of the paper purchased it at the last minute and we can now enjoy a non-biased publication once again.  Jeff Hattat was appointed by the board as Deputy CEO/ZEO tonight. I was thrilled to see that happen, as Jeff is experienced in a number of ways, has lived in New Lebanon as long as I can remember, raised his kids here, has a business here, and is just a great guy. Congratulations, Jeff! 

                     Let's hope we can get a candidate for Town Board that is half as good as Jeff. Dan Evans will not be running again, so we DO have an opening for Town Board this year, and with Jeff Hattat being appointed tonight, we now also have a Zoning Board opening.  The board also voted tonight to increase the number of positions on the  Recreation Comm. from 5 to 7. So if that interests you, send in your info. 

                      Apparently there were several complaints about the noise from the M&M Party last weekend. Despite the town requiring that the music be moved indoors after 10 p.m, it didn't happen, and some residents were kept awake until after 2 a.m.  I never heard a thing and I'm very close, but I guess those who live closer than I do, were NOT happy. I understand their anger, it's hard to get up early in the morning when you were kept awake half the night, and it's another issue similar to the Smoking Ban. We should all be mature enough to think about our neighbors before we do things that will affect them. 

                     We should NOT, EVER need LAWS or REGULATIONS to force us to be considerate of others, especially in a town this small. These things lead to OVER-regulation and loss of freedom, and it is so much easier to just think before we DO.  I didn't like hearing the words, "Noise Ordinance" that I heard tonight, as that is an example of over-regulation. Did you happen to see what happened in Saratoga this week re: the Malta Speedway? Another teeny, tiny group of newcomers and part-timers attempted to limit the track's hours and days of operation due to "Too Much Noise", but they were surprised to find hundreds of track supporters at their meeting, silencing their complaints in favor of a beloved and wholesome sport that they have enjoyed for years. Sound FAMILIAR?  Noise Ordinances are Dangerous, as are most regulations that impede freedom, so if we want to keep those regs OUT, we need to be self-disciplined and considerate. Are you listening, John Dax?

                      Here's something interesting; remember a couple of weeks ago when we had a long-duration outage of our Cable TV Service?  Supervisor Teal told us tonight that Charter has promised a credit to all affected residents, so keep an eye out for that and speak up if you don't get it.  Also, when you call Charter with a question or complaint, make sure you let them know that you are a part of "Charter Legacy", and NOT Spectrum. This is why we have so much trouble getting any assistance when we call, New Lebanon is not yet under Spectrum, and won't be for at least another 18 months.

                    Per the suggestion of a resident at last month's meeting, the Town Board is looking into increasing public service positions from 2 year terms to four year terms. This would include Town Clerk, Supervisor, Highway Super, and a number of other positions, but if passed, it would be at least 2019 before it goes into effect.  It makes sense, since these jobs take a good year to learn, so in effect, the employee or official is really only getting ONE year of being comfortable with the job. Then they either have to run again for the office, or be replaced by someone else who needs a year to learn! In any case, there will be much discussion and of course, a public vote before it happens. Won't be THIS year. 

                    Wondering what is going on with Dunkin Donuts? Well, DOT is the hold-up. They want one entrance and one exit instead of one opening for both purposes. They are also not satisfied with the designated truck turn-around that DD proposed, and they want a "Sidewalk" in front of the building! LOL!!  As if a Dunkin Donuts isn't going to look ridiculous enough in this town, imagine a little, short sidewalk in front of it. It will be the only place in town with a sidewalk and it will look extremely out-of-place. Should be interesting.

                     My step-daughter Michelle, is in the hospital tonight preparing to welcome her first baby. She is a week over-due, so tomorrow, they induce. We will be welcoming Freja Smith to the family.  (Fray-Ya. It's Norse.) Next month, my step-son Kennith and his wife Julie will be welcoming a little boy, Killian Smith, their first. It's funny, because Bob's one grandchild T.J, will be 15 next month, and my grandaughters are 18 and 21. Now we begin all over! (With Joy!) CEO Cissy Hernandez will also become a grandma for the first time next month, and Kevin Smith will be celebrating his first grandchild any day. Is there something in the water?  LOL!!

                    So no, I have not forgotten our Conspiracy Series we've been working on. Joe has sent me SO much information to read through, and I have to do that before I attempt to write about it. Problem is, there is so much to DO, that I haven't had the time or quiet to sit and read ANYTHING.  Fret not, I have no intention of dropping the ball on this. 

                     Again, sincere thanks to all who have helped to build the Flag Fund , I am SO pleased!  Sleep Well, New Lebanon!       JJ

 Directing Compassion                                                        7-12-2017


                        First, allow me to congratulate Councilman Kevin Smith, on his first grandchild, Eva Lillian Smith. She was born on Friday, July 7, and weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces. Welcome Eva!  Bob and I are still anxiously awaiting news on his daughter who is pacing the halls of St. Peters and not so patiently preparing to welcome HER daughter. LOL!!

                        I hadn't planned to write tonight because I have so much reading to do, but then, someone sent me something. Someone ALWAYS sends me something that sets my mind on fire and I HAVE to write.  Tonight, it is "Misplaced Compassion". 

                        Most of us have at least one thing we are passionate about, a hobby, a job, a calling of some type or another. A good number of us are passionate about a LOT of things, and some of us about too MANY things. (Guilty as charged).   Liberals claim to be passionate and COMpassionate about a good many social issues like the Right to an Abortion, to same-sex marriage, to protection from offense of any kind, to oppressive laws that benefit only themselves, etc.,etc.  They claim to care about the oppressed while they themselves are being oppressive bullies. They claim to care about minority issues while doing all they can to enslave minorities and keep them dependent on the government. But you know all that, right?

                      One of the millions of things that Liberals support that I find rage-worthy, is assisting Muslim "Refugees" who are not families in need of safety, but strong, young men who have ABANDONED their families in the war zone. They come to Europe and America to "escape"??   No, they come to invade, assault, infiltrate, and terrorize in the name of making Islam the only religion. Yet American and European Liberals stand with and behind them despite the overwhelming evidence of their evil intentions. 

                      This is not compassion, this is stupidity and Treason. If the Liberals truly wish to be compassionate to a people in need, they should look at North Koreans, not Muslims. They should look to protecting FREEDOM in America, and securing the safety of OUR people, lest we one day become another North Korea. Too many people are unaware of just HOW horrible it is for the people who live under that psychotic regime, or how wonderful those people ARE. It is the North Koreans we should be protecting and sheltering, not Islamic terrorists. 

                      You are about to watch the most heart-wrenching video you will see this year. Listen to this heroic little girl speak from her heart, and then, think about where we SHOULD be directing our compassion.
  

    Here is the link to this emotional video.

  Utter Stupidity !                                                          7-11-2017


                 Yeah, it IS about time, and I strongly support deportation of illegals. Imagine the jobs we could create if we; 1) Build the Wall, 2) MAN the wall, 3) Hire experts to re-vamp our useless immigration system, 4) Organize Task Forces to chase down the illegals who are HERE and get them OUT of here. 5) Make it easier and faster for LEGAL immigrants to complete the citizenship process.  Safety, Jobs, and a boost to our ailing economy all in one package. 

                 However, what I really want to address tonight is not the Illegals who climb the barbed-wire that serves as our border, but those who come here on student and work visas and just never leave. They are just as illegal as the others, and when you come or stay in America in an unlawful manner, you are a FELON.  As WE would be if we did the same in another country. 

                 I am so sick of hearing people say that we NEED the Mexicans and Somalians to do jobs that Americans won't do. Even my own husband supports Mexican Farm Workers because he claims that American kids don't want to work. To some extent, that's true, our kids can be spoiled, lazy, privileged brats that wouldn't get their hands dirty for less than 25 bucks an hour.

                Today, the news has been saturated with business managers and owners, complaining about not having enough employees, especially for summer jobs, because work visas for Mexicans are being denied. REALLY?!  You need foreigners to keep your businesses solvent?  Number ONE, there ARE plenty of Americans willing to do dirty jobs, young and old alike. Number TWO, how many people in every state are collecting unemployment checks? How many able-bodied bums are living on Welfare that YOU pay for? Got job positions that need filling? Start putting the welfare leeches and unemployed into these jobs and save the taxpayers a few bucks!

              I saw an interview with a shrimp fisherman from Louisiana, and he was desperate for workers, his business all but decimated from lack of help. He regularly employs Mexicans on work visas, and until this year, did very well. Now that visas are being denied and illegals deported, he is all but on his own.  I find that ridiculous and utterly STUPID. Our veterans need jobs, parolees need jobs, and Lord knows the Welfare bums and those who have been collecting unemployment for ages, need jobs! Do not tell me that men who have served time in the military or in prison, are afraid or unwilling to get their hands dirty or break a sweat! 

            State and Federal governments have the power and the DUTY to be good stewards of our tax dollars, and handing out checks to the lazy and chronically unemployed is not the answer. Kill two birds with one stone, and put the leeches to work and fill American jobs. Why is it so damn complicated for politicians to just do the sensible, beneficial thing?     SIMPLIFY ! 

             If foreigners wish to come to America, that's fine, who can blame them? However, there is a PROCESS to doing that, there are LAWS governing that, and there are REQUIREMENTS that must be met. Learn the Constitution and the English language, be law-abiding, be self-responsible and sustaining, and pledge your loyalty to the United States, or do NOT come here. See how easy that is?  I don't know about you, but I am sick to death of going out to dinner or to a grocery store and having to listen to people jabbering in some foreign language. I am sick of TV commercials that are in Spanish only, and everything I buy having Spanish directions included. Dial ONE for English?  No, YOU dial ONE for something OTHER than English! 

           Whomever issues work and student visas in this country should be arrested for their failure to follow-up on those visas and send those foreigners home when the visas expire.  It's their JOB, and WE pay them! Can you go to work and not do your job and still get paid? I doubt it.  Start holding your representatives accountable, folks, it matters.
