 Fairs and Freedom                                                                 9-1-2014




                 

What an eye-opening experience it was to work at the Chatham Fair today ! I generally avoid places where there are masses of humanity, but I had given my word that I would help out and I value my word. It would have been a much better day had it been about 20 degrees cooler and less humid. My bad back made it necessary to stop three times between the parking lot and the booth I was working, and at the end of the day, my clothes were as wet as if I had gone swimming in them. All that was nothing compared to what I learned by interacting with the public.


The booth belonged to the Hudson Valley Americans for Freedom group, but we had information available from numerous groups and efforts, such as SCOPE, National Liberty Alliance, the Second Amendment Foundation, Common Core opposition groups, and Oathkeepers. I worked alongside EddieF, the Radio man. It was nice to finally meet Ed face-to-face after being online friends and contacts for two years. We stood in front of the booth and offered printed information to passers-by, switching from subject to subject, attempting to engage some people in conversation, etc. Sadly, I learned very quickly that not only has our government experienced negative changes, but so has our entire culture!


Women with tattoos covering every inch of their exposed bodies, girls no older than 12 , walking around in shorts smaller than a handkerchief, and young men wearing tee shirts that said disgusting and offensive things. People who refused to even take a flier about Liberty, and even one family who actually said they had “No interest in Liberty” ! I told Ed that if it wasn't for my not wanting to embarrass the HVAFF , I would have REALLY had some words for those people!! For instance, “What the HELL are you doing in my country if you have no interest in Liberty?”. They were not foreigners, they were as American as you and I, but they had no interest in LIBERTY? Are you KIDDING me?


I had another guy, a little professor type, come up and tell me he was an Attorney for Social issues. Well, THAT was enough to tell me I had a fight on my hands. He said he had a great interest in Liberty, but that he and I would not likely agree. Gee, ya THINK? He then went on to tell me that he supports a universal ban on small weapons. I asked him why he felt that way and he said that too many people are being killed. So I told him about the statistics we all know by heart, and even mentioned last month's double-murder in Troy that was committed with a baseball bat. He then said that guns are just too easy and convenient. I responded that Tyranny seems to be all too easy and convenient right now as well, and that We the People have the inalienable right to protect ourselves, our families, our properties and FREEDOM by any means necessary, and that the prophetic foresight of our founding fathers is why we have the 2A.


He then asked if I approved of citizens being armed, and I said, “As a matter of fact, I am armed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including this very moment!”. He walked away! LOLOL!!! I was absolutely sickened by the number of people who were so interested in the cheap trinkets and greasy food at the booths, but had NO clue about their rights and no desire to KNOW about their rights. They walked around in their bubbles of selfish ignorance, stuffing cotton candy into their gaping maws and looked at us as if WE were the idiots! If you know me personally, you know how miraculous it is that I was able to retain my composure! HVAFF owes me a Medal of Honor for not tearing into these freaks.





When the ordeal was over and I was working my way back to my truck, I took notice of the people who were walking the midway. I saw the dark underside of humanity everywhere I looked. The Unwashed, drunks, earrings where no earring was ever meant to be, more Mexicans than there are left in Tijuana, BIG women in clothes with openings where there should NEVER be openings. Many, many little babies in strollers being pushed by people whose every other word was the F-Word, little kids screaming at their parents for this or that ride or plastic toy from China. Guys with their hands down the back of their girlfriend's pants, and vice-versa, and every other weird and distasteful thing you can imagine. I couldn't WAIT to get in my truck and lay rubber in the parking lot!


Needless to say, I now recall why I never go to the fair. I also know I will NEVER, EVER, go there again! One little fair in one county, in one state, and there was THAT much evidence of the degradation of the American people. Every bit of it, a direct result of Liberal policies, ideologies, and immorality. For me as a Christian Conservative, today was a glimpse into Hell, and I fear for our youth. I fear for us all.


Not that I didn't have the pleasure of meeting some awesome Patriots at the booth, because I DID! One young couple from the city stayed and chatted with us for half an hour and the man, a Transit Worker in Manhattan, was so articulate and informed, that Ed took his contact information and intends to have him on the radio show ! I met veterans, National Guardsmen, firemen, teachers, and Patriot Bikers who were very happy to see us, take lots of information from the booth and stay to talk about the issues. Sadly, they were the minority, at least at the fair. Conservatives are far from a minority in America. However, if the Conservatives, Patriots and Christians do not get out there and push back, it will be too late by 2016.


I have a deep-seated fear that Obama will at the last minute, manufacture a tragedy that will warrant the declaration of Martial Law, which will enable him to remain president indefinitely. This is not an irrational fear, it is a very real possibility. The time to get involved and active is NOW.




THIS is Common Core, and FAIR people!

Pedophilia and the Christian Church                                          9-2-2014



                               


As Christians, how do we respond to abominable sin such as the sexual abuse of a child ? This issue was brought up to me on Sunday and the discussion, though a brief one, has occupied my mind ever since.


Most of you are aware of the exposure of a New Lebanon, accused child molester by one of his victims, as it was shared all over Social Media about a month ago. It was concerning that this woman had not been able to prosecute this man, and even more problematic was the fact that  despite having confessed his crimes, this man continued to work in our high school. Though none of us sensationalized or “Harped” on the story, it WAS shared by hundreds of locals on Facebook and Twitter. Miraculously, everyone respected the request of the victim to NOT persecute the man, but only make others aware for the sake of children within his reach.


It seemed at the time that it was handled exactly as the victim wished it to be and that was that. Until Sunday when I was approached by a friend I will call “P” for the sake of privacy. P is a strong Christian, and an intelligent man of excellent reputation, a parent, and a friend of the perpetrator in this case. It was clear that the exposure of this incident had been in the forefront of P's mind since it occurred and that he had been waiting for the opportunity to take it up with ME. Well, I am certainly easy to find and contact, so I don't know why he waited so long. I am also not the one who broke this story, nor did I elaborate on it.


Doesn't matter much anyway, because I feel ZERO guilt for having shared this woman's letter and maybe in the process, protected another child. P however, obviously felt that the incident should have been kept “secret” and the perpetrator protected. Hmmm. Think about that for a minute. P stated that a child molester should be “Forgiven”, not exposed or punished. As a Christian, I understand and support forgiveness absolutely. As a mother, grandmother, and retired police officer, I understand and support the necessity of protecting our children and holding perpetrators to account.


P went on to “gently” accuse the victim of being a liar. He claimed that she was wrong about there being a statute of limitations on child sexual abuse and backed that up by saying that priests are being held to account all the time for molesting kids who are now adults. He also said that the perp in this case told him that at the time he raped this girl, he believed it was just what “Kids do”, and that the perp had been sexually molested himself as a child.


I was so taken back by P's opinion and statements as a Christian parent, that I had to bite my tongue, HARD. It is not my practice to lose my temper with people I love and respect and I knew if I got started, I would not be able to find my brake pedal, so I simply walked away. Permanently, I might add. So, let's take a look at P's claims and comments.


First of all, he has forgotten that we live in a very BLUE state where liberals and their backward view of reality shapes our government. NY State HAS a Statute of Limitations on Child Sexual Abuse. In fact, the punishment for a violation of the NY Safe Act , such as having a rifle with a pistol grip, is far more severe than the penalties for molesting or raping a child ! FACT!    So this perp thought that children raping one another is “just what kids do”? Seriously ?! Not in MY world.





Let us also not forget that in THIS particular case, the victim was FOUR years old and the perpetrator was NINETEEN ! Hardly “KIDS” being curious. That is a BABY versus an ADULT. So far as the perp having been a victim of child sexual abuse himself, isn't that a damn good reason NOT to repeat the pattern? Why would someone who has been abused and traumatized in such a manner, grow up and do the same thing to another innocent? I am sick to DEATH of that sorry excuse ! We are all responsible for our own actions as adults and we are accountable FOR those actions. Blame and excuses are the tools of evil and of weak men. Look at Obama, he does it ALL the time!


Our local perp no longer works at our high school. When this story broke, he was offered early retirement and wisely, took the deal. Should he be forgiven? By Christians yes, because God commands it and reserves vengeance for Himself. By the victim? That's for HER to decide. Should Christians hide or excuse crime of ANY kind ? No, never. Excusing sin and ignoring the unacceptable is why we now live in a Godless, lawless country, and it is why the Christian church has become weak, irrelevant, and empty. Billy and Franklin Graham both have stated this year, that Pastors and churches are directly to blame for much of the degradation of America. The failure of Christians to stand up and push back is now evident, and the results may be permanent. I agree with the Revs. Graham. If Christians won't get off the pew and take up the sword, who WILL?

 BEHOLD Auto Racing !!!!                                                            9-3-2014


                  I gotta tell ya People, I have just about had all I can take of people who move into this town and then try to change it to suit their liberal dreams of what it SHOULD be !!  If you don't like New Lebanon for whatever it is or isn't, WHY buy or build a home here? Why not just go somewhere where you WILL be contented? Oh, I forgot, liberals are NEVER happy, NEVER satisfied. They have to have everything 100% THEIR way, 100% of the time!  They don't want ANYONE to have the Freedom to choose for themselves and deal with their own consequences.

                 Liberals want to control what we eat and drink, what we see on the news, what our kids learn in school, what PARTS  of the Constitution are acceptable to THEIR ideologies and super-sensitive, immature emotions, and they want everyone to be equal financially except themselves. They want CONTROL. Last week, a bunch of Homosexuals, not happy with the fact they have been ruining the family-friendliness of the NY St. Patrick's Day Parade for years by running up and down in the streets half-naked, NOW want a license to fly rainbow banners proclaiming their "gayness" during the parade. Um, get a clue gay people, nobody CARES what you do in your private, personal lives. You have what you whined for, and it is still not ENOUGH. We don't CARE if you march in the damn parade, just don't let our children see MEN in nothing but a G-String, gyrating in their faces!  WE have RIGHTS, TOO! Control yourselves!!

               Today, it was cigarette sales in pharmacies. Now, CVS has removed them from their shelves. What the heck is THAT? Pharmacies also sell soda, candy, magazines, potato chips and all those things you liberals think should be BANNED, along with guns, freedom of speech, fun and happiness! Mind your own business and live and let live! DON'T come to OUR town and form your little cliques and FORCE things like "Behold New Lebanon" down our throats without even ASKING if we oppose it or not!
                 DON'T form your secret little committees like the EDC, stack it with your cronies, many of whom don't live here full time or don't live here at ALL, and make plans for OUR futures!  Who do you think you ARE ? Leave us alone and go find your utopia, wherever that might be, but do not attempt to dictate to us how we will live and what our town needs to be. Fit in or go away.


                  Isn't it interesting,that the Great Phony Czar, Mike Benson, has decided at the last minute, to FINALLY have these elite, clandestine committees come to the Town Board meeting an hour early next Tuesday to FINALLY tell the rest of us Stupid Hicks what they are UP to?  Did this news make the local papers in time for the public to be aware of it, or are we to rely on emails from Town employees that will never reach all those who might like to attend?  Maybe, maybe not. I guess we'll see. It is also interesting that the NEW outreach group in town, "Community Caring", was not included in this meeting of revelation. OH, I know why ! WE have been transparent about EVERYTHING we are doing since Day ONE! WE don't NEED to explain ourselves! Nor are WE asking for local, state or federal grants that will bring more REGULATIONS upon us and how we enjoy our properties.


                  If you read the Courier, you know why I am so riled up tonight. Once AGAIN, Howard Commander is under assault by idiots who moved within earshot of an auto racing facility and now object to it. Yeah, I know, I have HEARD all the whining about how activities at the track have increased over the years, and you know what? Of COURSE it HAS ! That's how successful businesses become successful, through EXPANSION!  DUH!!!!!  CAPITALISM, folks, it's either that or Socialism and if you choose the latter, you need to locate to a country that is Socialist. THIS is AMERICA, and WE like racing, greasy foods, cigarettes, loud music, and a sleepy town with NO tourism. If you don't , it's a BIG world!


                 If we want a soda that's bigger than a gallon of milk, we can HAVE it, if we want to smoke a cigarette that gives the state of NY  almost 5 bucks in taxes on each pack sold, we will damn well SMOKE! We have a "Clean INDOOR Air Act" not a Clean OUTDOOR Air Act, so put that in your pipes. We will smoke in the park, in our trucks, in the parking lot of shopping centers and on Town Property, and I DARE you to tell us otherwise! We will carry a gun, and we will speak our minds, Hate Speech and Political Correctness be damned. We don't tell you to stop eating Tofu and Bean Sprouts, or to spank your whiny, spoiled kids, so stuff it! Get a life and go live it and leave other people alone.


                  Can Howard Commander dig holes and driveways and cut down trees on his property? You BET he can! (Until the EDC gets its grants from the feds and bring in the Federal Regulations that ban everything but breathing, and paying taxes ON "Private Property".)  Can Commander build a Moto-X Track for his personal use or the use of his family? You BET he can ! This ain't Moscow, and it ain't Lenox, and it never WILL be. Howard can even have a Gay Pride Parade and let men dance in G-Strings if he wants to, it's his RIGHT. I wouldn't like it, but guess what? Too bad for ME, it isn't MY property!  I don't want Tourists running up and down our back roads in buses all weekend and gaping at us like we're rats under glass, but we HAVE it!  Compliments of, YUP, more City Liberals. See? THEY can have what THEY want without OUR approval.


               Ruth Abrams never even had the common courtesy to ASK the PEOPLE of this town how we felt about Behold, and she never even bothered to ASK if she needed any permits. She just DID it, and people are PISSED! IF Behold is planned again for NEXT year, it won't be this easy next time! Of course, Mike Benson says we all SHOULD have known about Behold, but all us stupid bumpkins, "Live under a Rock" as Benson said. Mr. Complicit, who also failed to tell his BOARD about Behold or ask THEIR opinions. AND, he sits on the EDC with his Uncle Larry. GAG!


                Now let's talk about John Dax. My, my, didn't HE have a LOT to say in the Courier article?! THIS, the guy who left town after doing something EXTREMELY shameful, not to mention having had a decade-long grudge against the Speedway and Howard Commander, AND abusing residents when he served on the ZBA, has something to SAY ?????? Anything John Dax has to say is drivel and jealousy for Howard Commander's success. Zip-It Dax, no one cares what you think anymore. With your record, you should be hiding, not starting more trouble.


             Ya know folks, if you really knew me, you would know that I am really, truly, a NICE person, and I mean only GOOD for others, for my town and my country. I just have ZERO tolerance for deliberate stupidity, selfishness and lack of respect for differences. I STRONGLY disagree with liberals and everything they stand for and promote, BUT, I believe they have the right to HAVE their views and live as they wish. It is when they refuse to grant the same to me and my fellow Conservatives, that I lose my temper and let them HAVE IT. When they insert themselves into MY life and violate MY freedom, it's GAME ON. I often wonder how liberals manage to drive safely, when it requires that they share the road and not drive down the middle or on whatever side they like better. GEEZ !!!


            News Flash for the opinionated John Dax who was chased out of town on a rail and for some reason appears to be BACK : You will NOT win. NONE of you whiners will win. I have been preparing for you for a LONG time, and I am WAAAY ahead of you. I also have every single thing you ever did or said against town codes, ethics and regulations, archived. You do NOT want to start with me. I am older and wiser, and you have been away too long, doing whatever it is you've been DOING ? Enough said, John?


            I hope Howard Commander keeps on expanding that track forever. I have stood on Rt. 20 at the bottom of Gale Hill Road during Drifting Nights and watched the cars, and I could barely HEAR them, right there! When Howard applied for a permit for the Go-Kart Track at the east end of his property, I attended every ZBA meeting and watched John Dax torment, delay, and cheat in a desperate attempt to deny that permit. It's all on paper with dates, times and details. Has anyone EVER said that the little Go-Kart track can be heard? NO. It can't be. Even if it COULD be, it's a "SPEEDWAY" people, and it has been a speedway for over 60 years and will BE a speedway for another 60, God willing.


         In the past week, I've had a LOT of people complain to me about Behold and the lack of respect locals receive from transplants and part-timers. Locals feel that they are being treated like mindless children in their own town. However, as I said the other night, they are telling the WRONG person! They all need to get up and come to next Tuesday's meeting and voice their opinions for themselves. Okay, I have officially vented and I feel better now. YOUR turn!  COME TO THE MEETING!

             THE ARTICLE


  

Commander’s work at motocross track violates injunction, says group


By Gail Heinsohn
For Chatham Courier
| Posted 12 hours ago
NEW LEBANON — An article in an Albany newspaper confirmed what neighbors of the Lebanon Valley race track had been witnessing — and what may inspire a lawsuit.
The July 23 article quoted track owner Howard Commander as saying he has “two things” remaining on his “already overflowing racing bucket list” — the “flooding” from the Kinderhook Creek, which he said is now “90 percent fixed,” and the addition of a motocross track, which he said was nearing completion.
“‘On a Sunday afternoon I want to see the drag track, motocross track and go-kart track running and being packed full of people,’ Commander said with a laugh,” read the article.
Construction of that “motocross track” requires a special-use permit from the town of Stephentown. After the permit was initially granted in 2010, neighbors sued under Article 78, claiming damage to their property values. The court ruled with the neighbors, granting an injunction against further construction in 2010.
Commander filed a new application, contending in part in his Environmental Impact Statement that the property, adjacent to his racetrack, was “not conducive to further residential development,” that the existence of the track “defined the neighborhood.”
Attorney Lewis H. Oliver Jr. countered that any “hardship” that caused was “self-created.”
The ZBA denied the special use permit in 2013.
But construction, the neighbors’ group charges, has continued. Trees have been cut down and removed and the driveway to the parcel has been widened and covered with gravel.
On July 31, Oliver, representing the Lebanon Valley Conservancy — a group of people in New Lebanon, Stephentown, East Nassau and Chatham who live within earshot of the racetrack — sent a letter to Jason Shaw, attorney for Commander, citing the newspaper’s report that Commander had almost finished construction of the motocross track. Neighbors had verified that construction continued in the face of the injunction against it, stated Oliver.
“Mr. Commander’s statement that ‘the motocross is just shy of completion’” leads his clients to believe “that Mr. Commander has violated“ the court’s injunction, Oliver told Shaw. That statement, “if accurate,” Oliver said, “appears to indicate a knowing and willful violation of the injunction.”
Unless Shaw could provide a “satisfactory explanation” of Commander’s activities at the site, Oliver’s letter continued, he will seek an order “to show cause why Mr. Commander should not be held in contempt of court” for violating the injunction.
According to Shaw, however, the phrase “at this time” in the injunction has, in effect, nullified the injunction. His Aug. 11 response to Oliver takes the stance that the ZBA and his clients were prohibited from “issuing or receiving” (which he emphasized by underlining) “permits or approvals” for any construction activities for the motocross track. “The injunction,” his letter continued, “prohibited [the parties] from issuing or receiving permits” to do what the injunction prohibited.
He reiterated his position in a telephone conversation with the Courier. “If you read the injunction carefully, it says that it prohibits the town from issuing a permit or Commander from obtaining a permit for the motocross or alternative excavating.” And “as read,” he said, “if it says the injunction prohibits him from taking any action to build, it was temporary.”
[The court order] “doesn’t prohibit him from moving dirt, cutting trees, making trails,” Shaw said. “He could even build a motocross track on his land and he would not be in violation of that injunction.”
Asked why his client would want to build a motocross track he couldn’t use, Shaw said that he was “not privy to [Commander’s] plans for the future. I’m unable to answer that.”
Commander continuing to build the track comes as no surprise to former New Lebanon Zoning Board of Appeals member and chairman John Dax.
“His habit in dealing with the ZBA seemed to have developed from his sense that there would always be a way around local laws for him,” Dax said in an email. “Either the laws didn’t really apply to him or that there would be some ‘loophole’ that he could exploit.”
His expansion into another area of vehicle racing also doesn’t surprise Dax. Commander’s history with the town is of continual expansion. Years ago, the racetrack operated one night per week.
“It wasn’t bad then,” said local resident and contractor Frank Koehler, who lives about a half-mile from the track. “Saturday nights and a little on Sunday.”
The cars were mostly stock cars and made little noise, he added.
Now, with what Commander described in another newspaper as “the 1800-horsepower blasts from his drag-race cars,” sometimes it’s so loud that it “sounds like it’s coming up my driveway,” Koehler said. And the tracks are “going every day,” from 9 a.m. to 10 or 11, sometimes later, at night.
Those engines followed a major expansion of the dragstrip in the early 90s, Dax said, when the track “extended the strip, added the timing stand and signs and seating. It greatly increased the activity at the drag strip, the size and number of dragsters on the track and the number of cars in the parking lot,” he said. It “turned the dragstrip from what was mostly a venue for local racers into a regional destination dragstrip with racing all weekend long, spring through fall.”
It also greatly increased use of the campground across the street, which Commander said at the time he had no need to obtain permission for, since he didn’t consider it a “campground,” Dax said.
The permit process took two years from the time he was first cited for a violation of town zoning laws, with frequent delays when Commander failed to provide requisite details to the ZBA.
Commander has since added a go-cart track and a miniature track next to the highway, as well as another activity called “drifting,” in which tires squeal constantly as drivers negotiate his paved parking lot.
According to an October 2012 issue of Performance Racing Industry magazine, the track now hosts special classes and events that include “pure stock, budget sportsman, budget, prostock, sportsman, 358 modifieds, four-cylinder and prostock echo among others,” as well as special events called Monster Truck, Eve of Destruction (rolling over school buses and racing school buses and trailers), Monster Jam, World of Outlaws and “Night of Fire,” which “features jet-powered cars and wheel-standers.”
“What I’m trying to do,” Commander told the magazine, “is be able to keep Lebanon Valley to where they’d really have to screw it up to go through the money that I’m going to leave behind.”
The noise created by the track is even worse in other areas of town Koehler’s worked in, he said.
“It seems to follow the creek — no matter how nice a piece of property you have. Nobody who wants peace and quiet wants to go out on their deck and listen to that,” he continued. “Everybody’s packing up and getting the hell out of Dodge.”
The nascent Noise Ordinance — and request by the group for Commander to be a “better neighbor” — appear to be stalled. Town Supervisor Mike Benson said that he has been unable “to pin [Commander] down” on a date for a proposed meeting.
Regardless of how one reads the court’s injunction, Dax said, “absent from Shaw’s analysis is the more fundamental question of how Commander can build a motocross track without a special-use permit.”
In dealing with the ZBA, Commander “didn’t feel any need to move quickly because he was already doing what he wanted to do,” added Dax. “Possession is 9/10 of the law, they say, which he’s certainly lived.”

Gee Dax, how did BEHOLD get a Visitor's Center at Rts. 20/22 without a Special Use Permit????

                 

New Lebanon is PROUD of its Race Track !!!!    Tell the "Newcomers" to DEAL WITH IT!

IMPORTANT  LEBANON  EVENTS !!!!                                         9-5-2014


           Below are several upcoming events in New Lebanon that are worth attending ! The Tuesday, Town Board meeting begins an hour early to allow some of the Secretive Groups and Committees that have been operating behind closed doors, to actually answer questions and speak to the PUBLIC. Imagine THAT ! 


           If you have been wondering what the Economic Development Committee, the Lebanon Valley Business Association, the Shaker Swamp Committee, Behan Planners, and Behold New Lebanon have been doing without the knowledge or input of the taxpaying public, this is your opportunity to find out ! If I remember correctly, I think they call it, "Transparency in Government".  How refreshing!  THIS is your opportunity to ask WHY Behold New Lebanon was implemented without a public forum or any permits, and why the Town Board was never informed by  Supervisor Benson of this project. It is also your chance to ask the part-time residents and NON-residents that sit on the EDC,  why they are making plans for the town as a whole, without open meetings or minutes.  What grants are they considering or have they applied for any? Will there be Public Hearings on these plans? What will it cost us?


          Come and ask Behan about their progress on the Hamlet Revitalization project that will also cost us dearly in the long-run, and while you're at it, ask them how many times they have met with the EDC or any of its members. Ask the Shaker Swamp Committee why they want to keep the land a swamp when it was originally the best bottom land in the valley and was never a swamp. It flooded after the drainage ditches clogged up once the Shakers stopped farming the fields. Why are they more interested in keeping it a swamp rather than restore it to its original state?  I'm sure you have more questions that even I do. If so, don't miss this hour on Tuesday!


           The Constitution Study begins on Monday, Sept. 8 at 7 p.m at the Lebanon Library and will be held every other Monday evening. Paul Engel of West Lebanon is the instructor. Come and learn about your rights as an American Citizen and how to defend and preserve our endangered liberties. There is no charge for this class and it is open to all residents, from teens to seniors.  If you need transportation, email me at: K9Sheps@yahoo.com.


            Please keep in mind the presentation by the John Birch Society that will be held at the Town Hall on Sept. 18 at 7 p.m. This will be an opportunity to ask questions concerning economic development, sustainability, revitalization and all the federal regulations that come with those things. If you own property, this is not a forum you want to miss! Also free of charge and open to all residents.

The Empty Suit                                                                     9-6-2014



                            I cannot even begin to process the comments Obama made yesterday morning from the NATO Summit in Wales. It should now be crystal-clear to even his strongest supporters and mindless fans, exactly WHAT Barry's  priorities ARE, and are NOT.


                             Obama has never been concerned with anything that the American people value, not even VALUES. He was hand-picked, mentored and groomed to be an appealing candidate to Liberals, minorities, the young and the low-information voters. It was a genius plan, and it WORKED! TWICE!!  Obama is a puppet, a flesh and blood robot who has never had an original thought and never performed an hour of labor in his life. That is why removing him through impeachment would solve nothing, because Barack Obama does not run this country, or the White House, or even his own family.


                              I could talk about the terrible truths surrounding this dark ghost for days on end and push the evidence in people's faces and they would still scoff and continue to walk in the slumber of ignorance and deny reality. So I won't waste my time and ink. You just can't reason with Zombies.


                               The summit in Wales has come to a close and as usual, little of any value was accomplished.  The allies will respond to ISIS and the Ukraine issue like the sissies they are. Is it productive to arm the Ukranians? Probably. Engaging troops in that mess is certainly NOT an option, and neither is ignoring it and allowing Putin to continue to be as lawless as Obama.  In Iraq, arming their so-called "Security Forces" is a waste of time and money. WHAT security forces??? The same guys that our soldiers spent over a decade training and arming only to watch them flee before ISIS and surrender the American equipment we left them to fight with? 


                                 Not one member country of NATO is willing to put boots on the ground in Iraq and go in as a United Front to wipe these blood-thirsty lunatics from the face of the earth? Seriously ? One fell swoop of combined NATO troops.  Git 'er Done, in and OUT. Then put Obama on the gallows for the part he played in the rise of ISIS and about a thousand other acts of Treason.  He actually stood before the cameras today and announced this sad course of action decided on by NATO, then immediately segued into a whining rant about Immigration Reform in America !!!


                                 This weak piece of human excrement used THIS opportunity to cry about the Republicans "Standing in the Way" of his getting what he wants ! Again, he threatened to use, or should I say, "ABUSE" executive power to pass his liberal, dangerous idea of immigration reform or "Amnesty". I couldn't believe I had heard him correctly. Had he actually whined like a little baby while reporting on a summit to address Terror?  Yes. Yes he had. Liberals dream of putting the first woman in the White House, but they don't realize that they already HAVE. Obama is a big girl.


                                 A mere three weeks ago, Joan Rivers stood on the sidewalk in front of her NY City apartment and told reporters that "Everyone in Hollywood KNOWS that Michelle Obama is a Tranny, a MAN. "  Funny that Joan died suddenly so soon after making that claim. IS Moochelle Obama a man, or was she born a man? Who knows. What would it matter if she was? I've been told all kinds of crazy things that if true, would not surprise me in even the slightest bit. These days, the more outlandish the rumor, the more likely it is to be factual. We COULD send Moochelle through airport security and settle the question once and for all!  LOLOL!!!

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


                                 Today, Obama announced that he will be delaying any action on Amnesty until after the November elections. My goodness, why do you suppose he would do THAT ? Ya think maybe the Democrats that are seeking re-election actually KNOW that the American Majority wants NOTHING to do with Amnesty, and we want the border CLOSED?  Think they are afraid to vote for Amnesty BEFORE elections because they might LOSE?


                                 As a final thought, have you asked yourselves lately about the missing Malaysian airliner? How about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the Death of Border Agent Brian Terry, Lois Lerner and the IRS targeting of Conservatives, or the NSA spying on American citizens? What about the sudden silence from Ferguson, Missouri, the lack of follow-up of the Sandy Hook incident, Obama's War Crimes and murders of children through drone strikes? How about Eric Holder's conviction for Contempt of Congress? Where are the missing Benghazi witnesses and the Fired Generals who knew the Truth? Why is our Marine still sitting in a Mexican jail, and what is being done to hold Bowe Bergdahl accountable for desertion and treason?


                                  Have you noticed how these things occupy every second of the news and serve as effective distractions when convenient, then disappear overnight? What about Edward Snowden and the  information he exposed about the illegal actions of our government? Why is everyone so quiet about all those illegal children who crossed our border this year, or the fact that they have been enrolled in American schools? How about the drunken Judge, who conspired with her dirty cronies to indict Texas Governor Rick Perry for holding her responsible for unethical behavior? These things don't just "Go Away", they are buried by the mainstream media on orders from George Soros and Valerie Jarrett, the two people who are REALLY at the helm in D.C.


                                    Just for giggles, take a few minutes this weekend and Google them both. Check out their backgrounds , then ask yourself what the HELL they are doing in one of our American, government buildings for ANY reason ! Much less advising the robot president! Be CURIOUS, ask QUESTIONS. Surprise yourself, and ME.

I Pledge Allegiance To......                                                       9-9-2014


                      I lost a fan and friend today. Terry Bingham was a loyal reader of this blog for many years. A good and decent Patriot, great dad and husband and grandfather. We will miss him, and pray for comfort and strength for his loved ones. You will be remembered, Terry.

 ***********************************************************************************




                       Who do you pledge your allegiance to, a political party, or America ? If you're a registered voter, you are entrusted with a huge responsibility to select candidates that will be good for our country.


                        I believe that the vast majority of voters are party-voters that simply vote across-the-board out of a sense of misguided loyalty to a party. That, and a total lack of information about the candidates.  We have a duty as American citizens to do our homework, to know who these candidates are and what they stand for, their track records and accomplishments and failures, before we vote.  I have never voted across-the-board and I probably never will. As a Republican, I want Constitutional , Conservatives representatives in public office, but there are a LOT of liberal Republicans or "RINOS" that fail to support Conservative values. John McCain, Lindsay Graham,Chris Gibson, and Mike Benson come immediately to mind.


                        There is also the rare, Conservative Democrat that deserves consideration, especially at the local level. At the federal level, I would not and could not vote for a Democrat, for obvious reasons. I would vote for an Independent, a Conservative  or a Libertarian, but never a Democrat. Our founders disapproved of political parties and the division and lop-sided power they are responsible for. Personally I agree, but I also know that eliminating political parties is a pipe dream. They are here to stay.


                         November is closing-in quickly and the campaign ads and postcards are filling our mailboxes. This particular mid-term election is one of the most important in recent history, and NOW is the time to look closely at the candidates, their values, and character. It's time to look at the route America has taken in the past 6 years and decide if we want to continue down the road to Socialism or take an entirely new direction back to being a Constitutional Republic OF the People. Do we want to send a message to all politicians that we have had enough of their failures, treason, and Constitutional Amnesia, or will we allow the decline to continue and become citizens of a Socialist Nation by 2016 ? It's in OUR hands.


                       At the state level, Andrew Cuomo has been running a TV ad that attempts to paint his opponent, Rob Astorino, as a corrupt politician. The ad claims that Astorino is being investigated by the Duchess County D.A. Look into this claim before you buy it as factual. It is not what Cuomo claims it is. Speaking of Cuomo, it's a FACT that he is being investigated by the FEDS for proven corruption involving the Moreland Commission. If you don't know the details of THAT, I urge you to do some reading.


                     I could literally write a novel about Cuomo's political crimes, Constitutional and Ethical Violations, over-reach and outright lies. It would require a second novel to address his lack of character, honor, integrity, poor parenting and lack of marital fidelity. Definitely NOT a man who should have ever held office. If Astorino has done anything questionable as a Duchess County official, you can bet your bank account that it pales in comparison to the things Cuomo had done and continues to DO. That's just a Fact folks, and facts are stubborn things.


                    If Cuomo was the Republican and Astorino the Democrat, I would still vote for Astorino. His running mate is a Constitutional Sheriff from Upstate and if they win this election, the Safe Act and Common Core will go away, immediately. Upstaters are sick and tired of NY City politicians running the entire state and attempting to "Liberalize" us all. It's time for some Conservatism in Albany. Cuomo has driven out more jobs, industries, small businesses, and farm families than all other NY Governors in History, combined. He has destroyed our public schools and made us ashamed to admit we are New Yorkers. We pay the highest taxes of any state in the country and rate second among those with the most rules, regulations and oppressive laws. You can surely guess which state rated first, can't you?


                   Despite all the abominable things Cuomo has done as Attorney General and then Governor, for ME, the most egregious was his deal with the devil, a.ka., Obama. Cuomo literally SOLD the Second Amendment Rights of NY residents to Obama in exchange for the Relief Funds for Long Islanders who suffered damage from Hurricane Sandy. Also a Stubborn FACT. It backfired on Cuomo in the end, because Long Islanders are still waiting for that relief, and they are NOT happy ! Where did that money GO? Is it funding the TV ads in Cuomo's smear campaign against Astorino?


                    This will be a very interesting election folks. Two people running for Lt. Governor on the Democrat ticket and Cuomo being challenged by ultra-liberal, Zephyr Teachout. There will be a lot of vote-splitting and that is very, very good for the Astorino team. By the way, why is ol' Shelly Silver still running around loose after what HE was caught doing? If he had been a member of any other party, he would have been removed from office and awaiting trial.


                     So vote carefully, my Fellow Americans. Put aside the party allegiance and vote for men and women of Honor. Take the time to do a little research and fact-finding on each one and shut out the TV ads and Smear Campaign materials from ALL parties. Be an independent thinker, an informed voter and a responsible American.

                    Last night's Constitution Study Class at the Lebanon Library was more successful than we ever imagined it would be. We expected 5 or 6 attendees, and we got FIFTEEN! Five of these were teenagers and two others were from Massachusetts. The ages ranged from 14 through 75 !


                   One of the many pluses about this study is the fact that it is 100% non-partisan. We are there to learn and understand the Constitution and how it was intended to impact our lives and regulate power, PERIOD.  As Jack Webb used to say, "Just the facts, maam".  Please consider joining us at the next class on Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. We will be kicking off the in-depth study of the Bill of Rights. Bring your teens, your parents and your elderly neighbor and take part in some lively discussion.


TONIGHT: 6 p.m - Special Town Board Meeting .    Come and ask questions of some of the groups and committees that tend to be very secretive and non-inclusive, such as "Behold New Lebanon", "The Shaker Swamp Committee", the "Economic Development Committee", "Behan Planning" and the Lebanon Valley Business Association.  Regular Meeting will begin at 7 p.m as usual. See you there!

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


               

 Twilight Zone, 12125                                                                   9-9-2014



                        I am honestly uncertain as to where to begin !  It may take a good night's sleep to process the trip I took to another cosmic plane tonight.


                        My father was a big fan of the supernatural, sci-fi, and stories of space aliens visiting the earth. I did not share that particular interest with him, but after tonight, I have to wonder if maybe he knew something I didn't. Liberals have got to be from another galaxy, it is the only way to explain the way they think, reason and behave and the manner in which they herd together like flocks of sheep waiting to be fed. If one claims that up is down, the rest will follow suit and back him up to the death.


                       I don't know WHERE I was tonight, but it wasn't New Lebanon ! There were strangers seated in the chairs that generally seat our town council. Each of them was there to give a "presentation" about the clandestine group or committee they were members of. It was intended to "inform" the public, which was laughable in itself, since just about every person present was one of THEM. (Whose fault is THAT, people??)  In the board seats were two representatives of Behan Planning including Mr. Behan himself. There was also David Stocks of the Shaker Museum, Fiona Lally of "Grow the Valley", Max Gitter of the Economic Development Committee, and of course the notorious Ruth Abrams, birth mother of Behold New Lebanon.


                      The Behan rep talked ALL about the Red Flags, such as sustainability, revitalization, open spaces, and GRANTS, GRANTS, GRANTS ! All the libs oohed and aahed of course. Fiona spoke on two subjects, since the famous John Dax was unavailable to speak on his Shaker Swamp project. All I have to say about THAT is, no matter what is growing or living in that "swamp" today, is not what was there when the Shakers were farming it as the best, most fertile bottom-land in the valley. It was never WET. It was irrigated by wooden troughs and sluices that brought water down from the hill and there were drainage ditches to keep it DRY and WORKABLE. So this Shaker Swamp Committee is trying to preserve something that never was, rather then restore something to its original state. Go figure.


                      The Lebanon Valley Business Association is no more. It has now been re-named, "Grow the Valley" and includes all the groups and committees that were represented tonight at the meeting. The Shaker Museum is a positive thing, much like the Heritage Center is, because it is an effective way to preserve our unique, local history. My only concern with it, is that the board needs to ensure the residents of Shaker Road that they will direct their visitor traffic to use Rt. 20 and NOT little, narrow, Shaker Road.


                       Then there was Mr. Congeniality, Max Gitter. The very first statements he made were in reference to his Co-Chair of the EDC, Sharon Moon. He said that of all the people in the room, Sharon loves New Lebanon the most and is most informed about the town's history. Okay, you all know that I like Sharon a lot, and I am grateful for all her hard work in helping to preserve Lebanon's past. I mean that sincerely.  However, for Max to state that Sharon loves this town and knows more about its history than anyone else is not only untrue, but insulting. She grew up in Canaan for heaven's sake, while there were people in that room who were born and raised in Lebanon and have given to this town all their lives ! How dare he make such a biased statement and hurt others! Oh, I forgot, it was MAX.


                        He then made it worse by stating that the donors to the Town Map are the real heroes of the town. Really ? Not the firemen, first responders, clergy, teachers, past historians or officials, Charlie Muller Sr., veterans, etc.? The DONORS are the heroes? Yeah, HIS heroes. Holy Crap !   The Historical Society also had a representative present, and he announced the upcoming celebration of Samuel Tilden's Birthday. Well, the flier for that event has been in local businesses for several weeks now and I have had numerous complaints about it, especially from the business owners. Apparently, there are only 100 tickets available, so it's first come, first served. One man showed me the flier, which is beautiful to look at by the way, and pointed to a line that said: "Bring a dish to share. If you don't bring food, you don't EAT!". Hmm. So anyone who lives in Lebanon and can't afford to bring a dish and/or buy a ticket, is uninvited ? Now THAT'S Community , huh?  Despicable !!


                         Finally, Ruth Abrams had her turn to speak, and speak she did. I have never HEARD anyone give a presentation quite like that outside of a TV commercial or stage play, but it was certainly entertaining. I gotta tell ya folks, it was REALLY hard for me to retain my composure, and I was not the only one! Ruthie said she was going to "Tell us a story". She then went on to almost SING the praises of Behold's first weekend of operation. She said that the tourists had "Flocked" to the Visitor's Center to buy tickets, and they were "enthralled" by the presentations given by local craftsmen and farmers. They "Swooned" over Schuyler Gail's pigs and the fact that they could actually BUY pork on site!! They were THRILLED by the cows and the printing press at the "Grant House". LOLOLOL!!!!!!!  It was like listening to a reading of Alice in Wonderland, honestly!

                        She even had a little drawing of a yellow school bus with a big, BEHOLD sign on its side. Really ? I have met some enchanted people in my life, but not THAT bad ! It was half hysterical and half nauseating. She made NO mention of the strong opposition to this project or the anger of long-time locals. Nor did she mention the fact that she had never bothered to ASK locals if they WANTED this in their town!!! She DID say that she wants to see New Lebanon "On the Map", which is exactly what folks have been telling me they do NOT want. We heard WAY too much about Tourism, Tourism, tonight, and yet the strongest opposers who have come to me with their complaints, were absent. You know who you ARE, and you know what? If you can't get some gumption up and speak out to the people who need to hear you, then you deserve to lose this town. Don't tell ME, tell THEM !

                       The regular meeting was relatively uneventful, save for one thing that really ticked me off. Benson decided to read "Communications" tonight. He said that this is what is done at the County Supervisor's Meetings, so he thinks it should be done here as well. Are you SERIOUS ?!?!  Lebanon Town Board Meetings ALWAYS included reading of communications, ALWAYS. Until Benson took office and removed it from the agenda. At the time, I had objected to the removal, and Benson gave me his tacit middle finger and ignored it. Now all of a sudden, it's HIS great idea to read communications? Loser. So, COMMUNICATE folks! Write some letters to be read in meetings. Let's see how long the Great Czar continues to put it on the agenda.

                      During Privilege of the Floor, TWO residents thanked the Czar for having the informational meeting and presentations by the secret committees. Oh my goodness, people! Don't you GET it ? How long have I been telling you that he was denying us Political Transparency by keeping the actions of these groups a secret? Now all of a sudden, he has them all come to speak? Ever heard of Legal Advice? SOMEONE gave him a little, and he decided to do this to cover his own A_S! Get a damn CLUE! Jack and Trina, you THANKED him for doing what he should have done two years ago? REALLY ?!? Like I said, the Twilight Zone.


                         Outside after the meeting, I asked several long-timers if they had ever heard any of the names that Gitter read off as being valuable volunteers and contributors to their private agendas. No one had. ALMOST ALL of the people involved in these things are newcomers, part-timers, and non-residents. ALL of them are liberals who salivate over turning this town into a Tourist Trap and getaway for city people. If you don't see that, you are blind, backward, or both. If you allow it, you are doomed to looking for a place to live elsewhere in the near future, where you can afford to live. Personally, I will continue to object and do everything in my power to counter this takeover, but I won't be retiring here. I will finish the incomplete work on my home, and in another two years, when my husband is ready to retire, it will be goodbye NY. Life is too short to live in a liberal state.


                          Like I said before, finish the museum, build the tourist trade, bring in Ruth Abram's Philharmonic, keep the sex hotel open up on Salls Road, get those grants and bring in the regulations and re-Zoning that Behan talked about tonight, and raise those taxes! Green it up! Raise those bean sprouts and grass-fed piggies ! Then my house will be worth a lot more than I paid for it, and I will laugh all the way to the bank in the West. I will feel NO guilt about leaving you remaining Conservatives behind, because you failed to FIGHT. You failed to STAND. You deserve what you accept.

(By the way, one of the more arrogant newcomers in town was tossed out of a local business when he approached them about doing a Behold presentation at their locality, because HE knows more about what they do than THEY do ! LOLOL!!!)

Random  Stuff                                                                                 9-12-2014


              Happy 80th Birthday to Archie, our housemate, friend and Godfather to my son. Retired Master Mechanic and Car Salesman, now a dedicated Chicken-Whisperer . 


               I have a couple of dear friends you may have heard of. Bob Schulz and Judith Whitmore of "We the People" are two of the nicest, hardest-working folks I have ever had the pleasure to know.  Bob is known  best for initiating the lawsuit against Andrew Cuomo for abuse of the Message of Necessity in the passage of the Safe Act.  Judith is his indispensable, right arm. These two people have given of their time, energy, and personal funds to defend Constitutional Law in NY State for a number of years now, even prior to the Safe Act.

                Bob and Judith have a dream, to one day see a Constitution Center in every state capital, manned by trained Constitution Monitors who would be responsible for defending and upholding Constitutional Law in each state and ensuring that all politicians adhere strictly TO it.  It's a nice goal, and one that can be realized if enough Americans step up and lend a hand. Therein lies the problem.

                Several months ago, "We the People of NY" gave birth to a huge effort to restore Civic Education in N.Y schools, both public and private. NY State Education Law requires that ALL students receive adequate teaching re: the Constitution, Common Law, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence. Sadly, this law has not been enforced in most schools for decades, and the results are clear to see. Very, very few Americans can tell you what the Bill of Rights has to say or what their rights are. As a result, we have a lawless government. From the little towns like our own all the way up to Washington,D.C, officials have run amok for so long, that the citizenry actually believes that we have no recourse, no power to change the status quo.


               So Judith and Bob rolled up their sleeves and set up this outreach to ensure that all our children and grandchildren learn the history of our freedom and what our hard-won liberties are. Judith spent many, many hours setting up a spreadsheet and reaching out to County Organizers like myself. She created an online petition for NY residents who oppose Common Core and the lack of Civic Ed in our schools to sign, and then share with their own email and social media contacts. In effect, a Chain Petition. Easy, yes? Well, sort of. The setup was horrendous, but once the hard part was done, it should have been a cinch to get the 600,000 signatures that Judith and Bob hoped for.


              The petition signing began on Sept. 3rd after a few weeks of notifying all Patriot groups that it would be coming. We all worked many hours to get it out to the public and ask that they all pass it on. All it required was a click on a link, an electronic signature, and another click to confirm. All of about 3 minutes. Once the petition closed on the 15th, it would be presented to the NY State Board of Regents, Board of Education, and the Governor, on the 17th. As of last night, the petition had received less than 500 signatures. What does that say about us as New Yorkers, as Americans? Nothing positive, that's for certain.


            Early this week, the Home Depot, which was boycotted last year for their decision to hire only gay employees for a number of months and to promote homosexuality via parade floats and store ads, is now requiring all their employees to take "Muslim Sensitivity Training Classes".  You all know where I stand on the gay stuff, live and let live, hire whomever you want. As long as the employee is a good and honest one, who cares what they do in their private lives? This latest move however, is unacceptable, or SHOULD be. The lack of awareness and refusal of so many to admit that Islam is pure evil is mind-boggling to me. How much evidence do you NEED?         How many Christians do the Muslims have to behead before we see some "Christian Sensitivity Training"?  The world has gone insane.


             Will Americans stand up and object to Home Depot's anti-Americanism? I seriously doubt it.  No one seems to care that we have documented Communist Party Members and Muslim Brotherhood Members working in the White House and Pentagon, or that illegal aliens are crossing our southern border by the thousands each and every day, bringing with them crime, drugs, gangs, and serious illnesses. Why would they care about what Home Depot does?  No one is crying out for justice for the 4 Americans who were murdered in Benghazi, or the Border Agent that was killed by Mexican Cartels with weapons given to them by Eric Holder and the U.S Department of Justice.


              I haven't heard anyone raising questions about Bowe Bergdahl, the traitor and Muslim convert that Obama swapped 10 terrorists for, and I haven't heard any outrage over the recent beheading of two, American journalists. Does anyone care about the American Marine still  being held in a Mexican jail?  Are they all out playing golf with the president?  Where is the FORTITUDE that made America great? Did it die with the last of our World War soldiers? When did we lose our pride, our moral compass? Where are our Pastors, our teachers, our veterans, our law enforcement officers ? Have they ALL been so indoctrinated by government propaganda and media indoctrination that they truly believe they are powerless?  The results of the Civic Education Petition-Signing effort speaks very loudly. America is asleep.


              Do you recall the surge of Patriotism we saw in America immediately after 9-11? Every home and business was flying the stars and stripes, so many in fact, that American Flags were back-ordered, everywhere! For a brief moment, America was ALIVE again, the people united, angry, defensive, and proud. What happened? Are we THAT weak that we will surrender to evil and oppression without a whimper? It would seem so. I find that to be the saddest truth I have ever had to face in all of my life.


              Here in New Lebanon, we number 2400 souls, give or take a few. How many of that number voted last election? How many have attended a Town Board Meeting, or objected to political corruption, or any of the legal, moral and ethical violations I have exposed here for the past 7 years?  Right now, this very minute, our town is being taken out from under us like a worn carpet, and despite all the warnings, information, and incentive PACT has given the residents, they fail to react. They don't even bother to look INTO any of the issues, but they ALL have something to say. All talk, no action. That is what America has become, and because of that apathy, we are now seen by the rest of the world as weak and ineffective, an easy target for terrorists and Socialists, illegals, drug runners, human traffickers, and high-level thieves.  We have weak people and a weaker leadership. America is dying, and no one is coming to her rescue.


             A lot of older folks have given up, because they feel their days are numbered, why fight it? I say, even though you may never see it grown, plant the tree anyway! The men who wrote the Constitution were not young when they took on that vital task, but they did it anyway. They did it for future generations in the hope that we would carry on their tradition of courage and hold dear their love of freedom. They never saw the tree mature, but they went ahead and planted. What gives US the right to fail THEM? Who are WE to dishonor their sacrifices?  I don't have all the answers, just a lot of questions, and the most pressing one is "What has happened to the American Spirit"?


             As a Christian I am often asked where God is in all of this. I think it's pretty obvious. When God is not welcome in a nation or by the people OF that nation, how can we expect him to Bless that Nation? America has become the new Sodom and unless we stand up for what is RIGHT and against what is wrong, we will suffer the same fate.

 Facts on Illegal Immigration                                                        9-13-2014


             Just a few of the major issues we face as a result of our Wide-Open Border.  If the president refuses to address this issue, the American people, MUST.










^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Liberal Government Breeds Gang Violence


Gang violence can  easily consume a community.

Young men without jobs, or supervision by fathers, disinterested in education, pose a constant threat.

A recent Orange County, CA,  club meeting featured an OC assistant district attorney speaker on how the department was attacking gang violence in the area.

The district attorneys engaged in the gang community through personal contact...monitoring school attendance and other such actions to try to quell gang violence. It is a dangerous enterprise.

Hearing of such deployment of highly trained law enforcement was ultimately troubling. Obviously, the work of gang abatement is necessary to keep gang crime from terrorizing the entire community. Though one had to consider why gangsters from another country are the job of USA taxpayers.

The speaker did not name the place of origin of the gang members, though from the location of the gang activity, it is known many of those in gangs are illegals from south of the border.

Gang-Violence1The DA's office staff clearly feel strongly their work is needed...and they  work hard and creatively to try to combat mindsets which motivate criminal behaviors in the USA. It can't be an easy assignment, and law enforcement believes its can make an impact with its methods.

The presentation had two elements in need of attention: first, the cultural foundation of the gang violence and, secondly, the assumption that the US & its citizens are responsible, simply because these people, through propinquity, broke illegally into the USA. Both are flawed in reasoning.

As these criminals/illegals were able to invade the USA, bringing with them their habits and mindset of disrespect for the law and the USA, does not make them entitled to a place at the table. In fact, they should be shown the door.

The meeting also featured a presentation of a scholarship honor to a young man, who attended along with his family. So one naturally can contrast his situation with those in gangs.

It can be said, this young man is the "product," so to speak, of the ethos of the United States, his community and his family. Obviously, he was reared to respect he Rule of Law, the USA and education.

In contrast, the gang members' behaviors are also the product of their country/community's ethos. A situation resulting from 400 years of Spanish Colonial racist, elitist policies, which disadvantaged them...for which the US had no role.

It is well known that people all over the world yearn to be in this great country. Unfortunately, USA citizens lack the Midas Touch, and cannot financially or culturally accommodate and rehabilitate the billions of disparate people who wish to be here.

Illegal ObamaThose who break illegally into the USA often bring with them their disregard for the Rule of Law, the USA, education and lawful decent conduct. That is the fault of their country of origin, not of the USA.

USA Citizens believe the way to deal with the growing gang crime and violence of this unlawful community is to use USA law and deport them all. The notion that because they were able to break into the USA taxpayers must pay to try to control their lawlessness is wrongheaded.

To spend citizens' hard-earned tax dollars on the expensive enterprise of changing inbred personal moral code is not effective. Those in need of remediation, resulting from hundreds of years of Spanish Colonial policies, which hurt the native population of Mexico and other countries in that hemisphere, are not the responsibility of the American people. That's a job for Mexico and other countries from which they came.

Deportation is the correct solution to criminal people in the USA illegally.

Unfortunately, the Obama administration refuses to deport a significant number of the 20-30 million criminals/illegals (11 million is fiction) in the USA currently. In fact, it orchestrated the current wave of criminals/illegals - 90 %  teen males - flooding the southern border. In effect...importing more gang violence as many of the young men bragged about being gang members. These criminals/illegals were secretly relocated to interior cities and no one knows where they are.  It is not fully known what diseases they brought, what Americans may be infected, and how much additional violence will result.

In any case, highly trained lawyers and law enforcement of the district attorney's office should not be deployed to this matter.

Deportation of the criminals/illegals is the right action.

The NY Governorship                                                   9-17-2014


                      For weeks now, we've been watching television ads from the Cuomo Camp attempting to demonize his opponent, Rob Astorino. Hopefully, most of you know that campaign ads are half-truths at best. Elise Stefanik was similarly smeared , yet Channel 6 Fact-Checkers proved that the ad in her case, was inaccurate. You can see the results of their investigation on their website. You can also learn there, the real story about the lawsuit Astorino is facing, which was filed by a political opponent with a grudge. The case has no teeth.


                      Cuomo's attempt to paint Astorino as a corrupt politician is just that, an "Attempt", and a failed one at that. If Astorino actually had done the things Cuomo claims he had, the evidence would be there, but it isn't. Unlike in Cuomo's corruption investigation by the Federal government for his role in the Moreland Commission Scandal. The FACTS concerning that HAVE been provided and are indisputable! Cuomo is scared, and well he should be ! His record as governor is deplorable and even the Democrats know it.


                      No NY Governor has chased more industry away than Cuomo has, or eliminated more jobs. Almost Half a MILLION New Yorkers have relocated to other states in the past 4 years alone, and millions more intend to leave if Cuomo is re-elected. Conservatives, who Cuomo stated are NOT welcome in NY, are the biggest number of emigrants, but a lot of Liberals have left also, due to the hardships this Governor has placed on businesses. Democratic Westchester County, has seen many families leave due to the Common Core Curriculum issues and the torment their children have suffered since it's implementation last year.

                      Four gun manufacturers, including Remington Arms, have left the state since last year's passage of the unconstitutional Safe Act. Same Sex Marriage was passed by executive order, with NO consideration for the opinion of the people of this state. Our taxes are the highest in the entire country, and the corruption in Albany and NY City is the WORST in the United States, and that is a FACT!  Cuomo has supported abortion, then walked into the Catholic Church just a few yards away from the Capitol, and taken Communion.


                       Of course, as I mentioned earlier this week, the absolute WORST thing he has done in my own opinion, was his sale of New Yorker's Constitutional Rights to Barack Obama in exchange for the Sandy funding for Long Island. THAT money is now paying for Cuomo's sleazy campaign, while Long Islanders are still waiting for the disaster funds to repair their homes and lives. Don't believe me? Look into it for yourselves! Facts are stubborn things,folks.


                        Rob Astorino is a family man with a political record of lowering taxes and creating jobs. If elected, he WILL remove the dreaded Common Core from our schools and replace it with Common Sense! The Safe Act will go AWAY ! Businesses will be welcome once again and Conservatives will be considered just as valuable as liberals. Balance and integrity will dwell in the Capitol for the first time in decades. Remember Spitzer ?  How about Patterson? Followed up by Cuomo, that doesn't say much for New York's Democrat governors, does it?  We are STILL waiting for Sheldon Silver to be held accountable for his Hooker-Gate scandal. It's time for change in NY. Do your homework before you vote. What's more important, party, or a strong, united and economically-sound state?

  

                       Now, before you watch the video I posted a link to below, make no mistake, Carl Paladino and I do NOT get along, not even a little bit! I find him rude, crude, opinionated, and pushy. We have had some interesting conversations that have been more like shouting matches, but I will spare you the details. The man has NO business in politics, period. He is a Neanderthal. Looking at him beside Astorino is like looking at a hog standing beside an eagle. So now you know how I REALLY feel about Carl. LOL!!  Rob Astorino on the other hand, is a gem, and NY deserves a man like him at the wheel.


                      Enjoy the video, and again, Thank You to my fellow Oathkeeper, Mert Melfa, for bringing the REAL news to the people of NY.   Hope to see many of you tomorrow night at the John Birch Meeting in New Lebanon, and to my Oathkeeper Chapter, sorry to miss this month's meeting, but I can't be in both places at once. See you guys next month!    JJ

Gratitude and Boorishness 9-18-2014




I would like to say a sincere Thank You to all of you who attended the John Birch Meeting tonight. Personally, I was disappointed that Hal failed to address the issues he came to speak about, but seemed to get side-tracked somewhat. Not that I don't appreciate his time and effort, I most certainly DO, but I kept waiting for the meat and got only the potatoes. It really doesn't matter anyway, because the people who most NEEDED to be there, once again, stayed home and watched TV. I guess ignorance must be comfortable.


Speaking of ignorance, I am going to end my self-imposed truce with Planning Board member Trina Porte as of tonight. Her rudeness tonight was inexcusable and unwarranted and enough is enough. Trina emailed me about two weeks ago after I had first invited her to attend tonight's meeting. She had Googled the Speaker, Hal Shurtleff, and wanted me to know that she was “Disappointed” in me for supporting such a hypocritical and ignorant man. Hmm. Since Trina had just accused me of being a Homophobe a week before THAT, I was still surprisingly able to remain cool and allow her to express her opinion as is her right. The Homophobe comment was a result of my being pleased that Hobby Lobby, a Christian-Owned business, had won their court case to NOT provide the abortion pill to their employees. The article I cited had claimed that “Radical Homosexuals and Feminists” had threatened to have sex in the aisles of Hobby Lobby stores. So, by repeating what the article stated, I was a “Homophobe”.


When Trina arrived at the Town Hall tonight, she was wearing a mountain-sized chip on her shoulder. She had already decided that she disagreed with whatever Hal had to say and she was loaded for bear. The entire 45 minutes of the presentation, she sighed as loudly as possible and kept using the Lord's name in vain. I still let it go, even though she was sitting right behind me. As the talk wound down, she had her hand waving in the air immediately, and wasted NO time in attacking Hal and essentially calling him a liar. All this, despite the proof he had provided right in front of her eyes! She accused him of having said something about the Girl Scouts being BAD, which he never said and made NO sense at all. She also again went after me and Bob and said she was so “Surprised” that we would expect people to listen to HIM, when he was from out-of-town and we object to out-of-towners having a say in what happens in our town.


She failed to mention that the outsiders we object to, are the liberal part-time residents and non-residents that are busily planning the future of New Lebanon behind closed doors. People like Linda Hursa, Melanie Hunt and Ruth Abrams. Hal was just a representative of JBS and never said a single word about how we should run our town and he wasn't here to try to “Change” us , or start a ridiculous project like “Behold New Lebanon” that very few people want any part of. He was simply a guest speaker, and she treated him like he was here to steal her undies and send her packing. Not a bad idea, actually. Ya know, I have gone above and beyond to defend Trina when people like Mike Benson and Max Gitter went on the attack against HER. I didn't sit still for their abuse and I will never again sit still for Trina's. Courtesy works BOTH ways, and just because she happens to be gay, does not give her a license to trample the rights of others to be heard or have a differing opinion.




Bob actually told her that if she was so unhappy, she should just leave! LOL! She stayed until the end though, and on her way out of the room she looked back over her shoulder and snapped at me, “Shame on you! You hypocrite!” I have absolutely NO clue as to what she was referring to or what she thinks I did to deserve that title, but oh well, it's just another one to add to my collection. Sadly, Trina's behavior tonight was a CLASSIC example of Liberalism. How DARE anyone have a view that doesn't line up with her own! How DARE the Conservative point of view be publicly stated in HER town! Whine, whine, whine. She made a fool of herself, and if anyone should be ashamed tonight, it is Trina.


I am also adding the members of our Planning, Zoning, and Town Boards to the list of those who should be ashamed. ALL of them show up for every liberal meeting, but want nothing to do with Common Sense or the other side of the story. Tony Murad had the interest, sense of responsibility, and old-fashioned courtesy to attend and contribute. It's called, “Integrity”. Tony and I don't always agree, but we respect one another and agree to disagree. That's why we are Conservatives. We are willing to give others the right to see things differently without calling them names. LOL! Libs ALWAYS resort to name-calling when they don't get their way 100% and have no argument left. Geez, I've been called more things than I can even keep track of, by Liberals. Yet not  one of them could hold their own in an intelligent debate on the issues. So they avoid anything that might lend credence to the opposite view. Hence, the lack of officials at tonight's meeting.


Some of you would have been amazed to see who WAS there ! Rev. Ernest Smith and his son, Steven. Steve is a very dear friend of mine and I love him fiercely. He's a huge fan of the JBS and rarely misses any of their local meetings. It was worth everything to see him tonight. Rev. Smith is 92 years old now and in a wheelchair, and he really doesn't know anyone anymore, but he is still the same guy that stood on the pulpit of the New Lebanon Congregational Church for over 20 years. That was evident by the way he still likes all the ladies! He sat beside Judy Zimmer with his arm around her shoulder all night. LOL!! Some things DON'T change.


So, once again, I Thank all of you who were so kind by attending tonight, it is truly appreciated. It's still possible to re-unite New Lebanon, but only if we are ALL willing to meet one another halfway.

 Understanding the Bundy Standoff                                              9-19-2014










At last night's meeting, the Cliven Bundy incident in Nevada earlier this year, came up in conversation. The media mis-direction about that almost 2nd Civil War, had many millions of people blaming Bundy for the standoff and pointing fingers at the Americans who came to defend him and help him protect his property. No surprise there. However, I was asked about the details of the Bundy incident and one person even requested more information, so tonight, we'll talk about the facts surrounding that historic day.


I don't know how many of you recall the Randy Weaver story or what happened down in Waco, Texas at the Branch Davidian Compound, but BOTH of those tragic incidents were the direct result of government over-reach and extreme violations of Constitutional freedoms. If you are unfamiliar with those two stories, you might want to Google them and read up. Kent State is another good source of information on government terrorism. You will learn very quickly that Yes, our government is willing to kill its own for financial and political gain, to cover up their own sins, or to get something that YOU have and THEY want. Or, simply because you dared to disagree with them. Horrible to consider, but it has happened numerous times throughout our history and will happen a lot more if we don't step up and address it, now.


The Cliven Bundy matter was the first really notable case of open government tyranny since the Waco massacre. Harry Reid and his wimpy son had an opportunity to make many millions of dollars in a dirty deal with China to build a Solar Farm in Nevada. Problem was, the land they needed belonged to a cattle rancher by the name of Cliven Bundy. So the Reids and their minions who stood to gain from the deal, decided to FORCE Bundy off his own land and the adjoining grazing lands that had been used by ranchers for generations, and is considered to be “Government” land. Fact is, the government doesn't own any land, the PEOPLE of the United States, do. The government itself, owns NOTHING that you and I do not pay for, maintain, and OWN.


The first attempt was made by insisting that a desert tortoise was endangered and continued cattle grazing could result in their extinction. Of course this brought all the loonies like PETA and save the moon-beam butterfly types. In reality, the tortoise in question is so prolific, that the government has been systematically killing some of them off each year because they are destroying the plants that other wildlife relies on for survival. The eco-balance was endangered BY the tortoises, not the other way around. In addition, cattle have been grazing there for so many years that few can remember a time that they didn't ! No one had EVER seen a cow eat or step on a tortoise or fight them for food. LOL!! Nope, not even ONCE.


So the tortoise ploy didn't hold water for long. The Reids then resorted to claiming that Bundy was in arrears in his “Grazing Fees”. Well, just between you and me, why does he have to PAY grazing fees to the government to begin with? Grazing of these lands is what keeps it healthy land, and as I said before, if it is government land, it is the people's land, and there for the use OF the people. Reid, with the full knowledge and cooperation of our liberal administration, decided to go after Bundy with everything he had. So they sent in the Nazis, a.k.a the Bureau of Land Management and the EPA. Naturally, in the New America, these agencies have their own, heavily-armed police forces, which we also pay for. So does the Department of Education and the Social Security Administration, but that's a story for another day.


The Government Nazis poured into Nevada, filling up the motels and restaurants and unnerving the residents. They surrounded the Bundy Ranch and stood guard 24 hours a day with automatic weapons, snipers, and armored vehicles. All because a guy was behind in paying his unfair grazing fees? Um, NO. All because Reid and his cronies wanted that land. What the government and the Dirty Harry crew failed to understand, was that the American Patriots would not allow this rancher and his family to be robbed and maybe even killed, by a greedy, tyrannical, and over-reaching bunch of dirty politicians. There would not be another Waco.


The standoff began with just the neighbors and friends of the Bundys, and quickly grew to include militia groups, Oathkeepers, Marines, Veterans, and patriot volunteers from all over the USA. All ARMED and experienced . The TV cameras stood watch as well, waiting with bated breath to see who would cast the first stone. The BLM had already managed to slaughter a good number of Bundy's cattle, his livelihood, and claimed that the animals were on government controlled lands. ( PETA had nothing to say about THAT! ) We all saw the pictures of the cattle being bulldozed into holes dug by the BLM, and it was reminiscent of the German Camps and the mass graves of captured Jews.


This showdown continued for a number of weeks, until the government , and the REIDS, got the message that the lovers of freedom and Constitutional Rights, were not backing down, and not going away, and neither was the press. It was then that this administration understood that if they wanted to press, it would not be as easy as it was in Texas, or Idaho. They were not facing untrained civilians this time, they were looking down the barrels of thousands of guns in the hands of men and women who knew how to fight. It was a message that ran through this lawless administration like a rapier, and they backed away. We had shown them that if they want a fight, we will give them one, and we have the military, police, veterans, and millions of others, on OUR side. Yes, we DO still outnumber them by a HUGE margin, and they know it.


As Stewart states in the video I posted below, this standoff was an enormous victory for us and lesson for the government, that if they continue to attempt to run amok and run us over, they will have a battle on their hands that they are not likely to win. For those of you who have not bothered to oppose the attempt to impose draconian regulations upon gun owners in America, this is a perfect example of WHY this government wants the citizenry disarmed. What do you suppose would have happened in Nevada if the patriots had NOT been armed? Better yet, what do you think would have happened if even ONE member of the BLM or EPA had fired a shot? What if an Oathkeeper had? Peace between the people and the government is THAT fragile right now. NO American with a lick of sense or an iota of awareness, would ever even CONSIDER giving up their firearms. Americans have never submitted to gun grabs and they never will, and the threat of tyranny is the reason why. Our forefathers knew this, they planned ahead for it, and they STATED it, loudly and clearly.


No one, not even Trina, can deny the evidence of how far the government is willing to go to have things THEIR way, that we saw in this standoff. It was a valuable warning to those of us who have not been paying attention to history or to recent events. History DOES repeat, and it IS repeating. Cliven Bundy is not a criminal or even close to being one. He is a gentle, well-liked and respected, cattle rancher in middle America. If this could happen to HIM, what do you think could happen to YOU if someone like Harry Reid decides he wants what is YOURS? This is why you must learn all you can about Agenda 21 and how it will affect you and your property if we allow it to continue to gain a foothold here in Lebanon, or ANYWHERE, for that matter.


Last night's speaker from the JBS, failed to address the issues he was here to address. So if you care about your property rights, you will have to do your own homework. Don't wait for the Zoning Police, the BLM or the EPA to come and standoff with YOU . Stop it NOW. Know your rights and the government's Constitutional limitations BEFORE you NEED to exercise those rights. Stop denying the lack of honor among thieves and be armed with knowledge and awareness. KNOW what the Constitution has to say about these very issues, what protections you have, and be prepared. These are bi-partisan realities folks, the bad guys know no particular party allegiance, and neither should YOU. Not when it comes to freedom, property rights and outright tyranny.


This is no longer a “What If ” scenario, it is a very real threat to every one of us and it will take every one of us to rein in the tyrants. Starting in your own town. Can you say, “EDC”?

 Sissy  Americans                                                                        9-22-2014



                             

I have often said that there are no absolutes, and I have said it because I have always believed it to be true. Blanket statements about any particular group, ethnicity, religion, etc. are usually unfair and inaccurate. It's easy to make statements such as , “Irish people are drunken brawlers”, “All teenagers are troublemakers”, "Black people are violent”, “Polish people are stupid ”, “Jewish people are cheapskates”, and so on. We all know that such claims are ridiculous, but at the same time, do we ever wonder WHY they're made at all ?


This is “Profiling” , something that a lot of folks think is relatively new. Profiling has always existed and will never go away, and there are times that it has it's advantages such as in Law Enforcement. Profiling can prevent and even solve crimes. Profiles don't come from thin air and they are not born of hate or racism, or anti-Semitism. They are built, or “earned” when the majority of any group or class of people tends to behave in a consistent manner that is unique to that group. Young, Black males are seen as potential threats because they so often ARE. The Irish are seen as drunkards because they very often ARE. The religious are sometimes labeled as pious or hypocritical, because so many of them ARE. Profiles are a result of behavior.


It isn't easy to be part of a profiled group when you don't fit the profile yourself, but it's a fact of life that we all have to deal with and one that cannot be changed quickly or easily. Believe me, I know the feeling. So how DO we deal with this issue? Maybe we can't. In many cases, all we can do is decide to rise above the labels as individuals and toughen our hides. We live in a melting pot and the thin-skinned will find happiness elusive.


I am a collector of all things Uncle Sam. When Samuel Wilson was a mere boy of 8 years old and living on a farm in Massachusetts, he not only served the Patriot movement as a secret messenger, but also witnessed the ride of Paul Revere ! Revere rode right through the Wilson farm and shouted to alert Samuel's father who was a Minuteman. Every man and boy stood and fought in one way or another, and so did the women. A neighbor of the Wilsons, a huge old woman named Mother Batherick, single-handedly took six British soldiers captive and delivered them to the local, Patriot leaders.


Everyone had a role and everyone fulfilled that role without question, fear, or hesitation. After all, look what they were fighting for !! Today, we find ourselves once again fighting for Freedom. This time, the enemy is not the red-coated British, it is our very own, federal government. Unlike those early Patriots, we are MANY. We have amazing technology, access to immediate information, speedy transportation, and for those who care to tap into it, HISTORY. So why are we losing ground ? We are losing for more reasons than I care to count, but complacency tops the list, followed by ignorance. Our military aside, how many of us have ever had to take up arms in defense of our families, neighbors or properties? How many of us could or would if we had to ?


Americans of today are spoiled. We reap what was sown by others and take it all for granted. Our people have lost their pride, courage and determination and become a society of selfish, thin-skinned sissies. Few of us have ever known a life without freedom . The Patriots of Uncle Sam's childhood stood together, fought and died for what they held dear. Americans today, fight in courtrooms because someone called them a name or otherwise “offended” them ! Can you imagine men like Paul Revere wasting time on such childish nonsense ?



When I was growing up, one of my favorite TV shows was “All in the Family”. Archie Bunker was the ultimate bigot and spared NO ONE. He had an opinion and a derogatory title for everyone who was not a White, Catholic, Blue-Collar worker like himself. His neighbors, the Jeffersons, were Black and shot back at Archie's whiteness and bigotry at every opportunity. This TV program held the number one spot for most of the 1970s, and no one ever sued the network or tried to force them to end the show. We were not yet fully sissified then and we were still able to laugh at ourselves and others without fear that it might cause permanent, emotional damage. GEEZ !


The show had it's liberal viewpoint via Archie's son-in-law, who he called “Meathead”. Rob Reiner played that role, which was no stretch for him as he is a far-left, extreme liberal in real life. So what the hell happened in 30 years to turn us into the whiny babies we are today, incapable of having a sense of humor or letting words bounce off while remaining emotionally healthy and intact?


No matter who or what you are or what you do in life, someone will dislike you for it, profile you, call you names and maybe even sue you for exercising your rights of religious expression or free speech. If you can't take name-calling with a grain of salt and still retain a sense of self, you will never know peace in your life. We are all different in a variety of ways but we are ALL Americans, all facing the loss of our freedoms that those early Patriots battled to give us. We MUST stop focusing on the ridiculous and trivial things like Political Correctness, tender feelings, Hate Speech, and frivolous lawsuits and toughen up, unite, and clean up this lawless government that threatens us ALL, regardless of our beliefs or skin color.



In closing, I have to say one more thing about absolutes. I said that blanket statements are unfair and inaccurate, and not very long ago, I believed that to be true in every case. That was before Islam reared it's ugly head and began to slaughter all non-Muslims everywhere in the world. I now KNOW, that ALL Muslims are dangerous and most of them are evil. They deserve ZERO tolerance in our country, and if you disagree, you are fooling yourself. Liberalism too, has been a MAJOR cause of the destruction of American society, pride, morality, strength and unity. I have come to believe that there are NO liberals deserving of the gifts our soldiers and founders bestowed upon us. ALL Liberals are mentally impaired. ABSOLUTELY.

 Are You KIDDING Me ?!?!                                                            9-24-2014



Climate Change. REALLY, People? Thousands of you gathered in D.C, Obama spoke at the U.N, and all the Liberal Tree-Huggers whined. Good Heavens, that's pathetic !


Global Warming is a HUGE hoax perpetrated by a government that wants to control everything you do and force us to support their “Green” agendas that will pad their bank accounts. Co2 is VITAL to the greening of the environment. It is what green things EAT ! If libs are so concerned about the CO2 levels, maybe they should stop BREATHING and TALKING !


America is the CLEANEST country on earth, and what you call a Climate Crisis is just WEATHER. NORMAL cycles of weather that have occurred throughout history . Pay attention folks, the government never pushes ANYTHING that does not serve an agenda or make them millions of dollars. Yeah, I have HEARD all the weak arguments from liberals that “70% of Scientists say...” . Really? Who are these scientists and who is paying them? Exactly what is IN it for them? Money, that's what. Manufacturers of light bulbs that look like piles of white dog doo and if broken, require a response from Hazmat ? They cost 10 times what an incandescent does and are toxic to boot, but look at the money to be made! Not only do you have to buy the expensive dog doo bulbs, but you have to change your lampshades and hardware to accommodate them. Recycle them, and hope your kids don't break one !


Coal. America has always depended heavily on coal. Have you seen Kentucky lately? I'm not talking about the fancy horse farms with the rolling hills of bluegrass, I'm talking about the hill country, where the miners live. It is 2014, and many of these miner families have no running water or electricity, but they are a faithful bunch, dedicated to God and family. Some are 10th and 11th generation miners and have never known anything else. They desire little and are happy living in a community that is close-knit and off-grid. They are truly a breed apart. Now , as a direct result of Barack Obama's anti-coal policies, they are losing what little they HAD. Their incomes are gone, they have no jobs and are losing their ramshackle homes. An entire society is being eradicated because we have a president that prefers to keep us dependent on foreign oil delivered by extremists who despise us and want us all dead.


Liberals share in this disaster, equally. Their refusal to face reality and accept truth, is destroying the economy and stripping us of even MORE freedom and independence. They are killing jobs and people by the millions in the name of saving a tree or two. America NEEDS to mine, drill and yes, even frack in some cases. We NEED to supply our OWN energy and create millions of jobs associated with that effort. It can be done safely and effectively, but only if the greenies stop whining and believing what the Rothschild's Media feeds them. Get a CLUE ! Last week, I actually had a liberal tell me that she doesn't like windmills because they kill birds! Seriously ? Yet you support abortion? You would have the Kentucky miners starve to death before you would sacrifice a house wren? This is how liberals think.


So while they were all walking around D.C this week with their Greenpeace signs, who was addressing the border crisis? How about hunger in America? Who was doing something about the Beheading of American journalists, or Ebola sweeping across continents, race-baiting by the government, voter fraud, constitutional violations, Muslim Czars in the White House and Pentagon, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the Libor connection in the False Flag , Sandy Hook shootings, Bowe Bergdahl being back on active duty as a Muslim convert, Common Core, Welfare reform, the tyranny of Obamacare, Agenda 21, gun grabbing, and the IRS targeting ?


Climate Control ? THAT is what you are active about? No interest in Term Limits, ending the 6-figure, LIFETIME salaries of Congress and the Senate? How about the epidemic of homelessness among our veterans while illegal aliens are housed, fed, educated and given free healthcare? Any of you have a comment on the Somali Muslims in America who are whining that our food pantries don't stock Muslim-Friendly foods? No comment on the public schools that are banning tee shirts with American Flags on them and denying your kids the right to pray before a football game?


Of course not, you're too busy lying to little kids about the drowning of the poor Polar Bears because the ice is melting at the North Pole. There is a bigger ice cap at the pole right NOW than there has been for the past 20 years! FACT !!! Are any of you objecting to the rampant persecution of Christians all over the world, including here at home? Do you ever wonder where that missing Malaysian airliner is? Or how many ISIS members have come across our border with the Mexicans? Do you wonder when or IF Obama will be held responsible for the RISE of ISIS because he pulled our troops out of Iraq prematurely for political reasons? Are your mis-guided beliefs that TREES and BIRDS are in danger, more important than National Security ? Apparently so, and THAT my liberal friends, is why Conservatives abhor your ideologies and laugh at your tantrums. You are INSANE.


Hillary Clinton made a personal appearance a few weeks ago, and stated that she is “Thinking” about a run for the White House in 2016. The crowd CHEERED ! LOL! Yup, they blindly support a woman who is a proven thief, liar, and killer, because they want to be “Progressive” and put the first woman in power. Well, last time, you put the first Black man in power. How's THAT working for America? Are you KIDDING me?! There is no explanation for that level of stupidity. Yet if a Conservative dares to disagree with you, you resort to name-calling and temper fits because you have no teeth for your arguments. You are literally crazy, and you are dangerous to the future of our country and our children.


It would be great if we could just give NY, California and the New England states to the liberals to do their own thing, and the Conservatives could take the mid-west and Texas. You do your thing, we do ours, and see what happens. What states would be free and solvent in 5 years time? Where would the churches prosper and where would they fail? Which states would have the better educated children who were happy to go to school ? Where would crime rates rise and where would they drop? No brainer. The “C” words always win. Conservatism, Common Sense, Church, Children, Capitalism, Courage, Compassion, Culpability, Consistency, Caring, Closed Borders, and Cooperation. C? Wasn't that easy? You can have the OTHER “C” words, like Common Core and Cynicism, Corruption and Coexistence. Would be an awesome experiment. Anybody IN? LOL!!!!

 The  NEWS                                                                            9-30-2014


              Let's catch up with recent news a bit. The Teflon Muslim is finally admitting that we cannot eradicate ISIS without Boots on the Ground. Of course, WE knew that from the start, didn't we ? It was even discussed right here a few weeks ago, if you care to look back.


               What Obama has still NOT admitted is the FACT that the rise of ISIS is HIS fault. His weak, inexperienced, and dangerous "Leadership" led to the premature withdrawal of our troops and opened the door wide to the Terrorists known as ISIS. Every death, every drop of blood spilled since then, lies squarely in Obama's lap.

                The weirdo that breached White House Security last week has been the catalyst for countless meetings and policy changes. Personally, I would have been thrilled to see a handful of Navy Seals and Special Ops breach the Halls of Tyranny from every direction and take the entire place hostage in the name of the American People, but I digress. The trespasser got through the front doors and well INTO the building and in the end, his foolish risk may well make an important point that nothing else has. Our National Security SUCKS.


                 I wonder how the Obamas feel about having THEIR personal privacy and safety put in peril ? Do they now have a CLUE as to how the rest of us feel ? Will Obama's advisors actually decide that maybe the security of our OWN homeland should be a priority ? Perhaps they should CLOSE THE BORDER ?? I doubt it. The Illegal's future Democratic votes are far too valuable and much more important than our safety is.

                     We also saw America's First Beheading in the name of Allah this week. The liberal Media continues to spin it as "Workplace Violence" , just as they did with the Fort Hood shootings. Okay, so let's humor the libs and call it; "Workplace Violence resulting from Islamic Extremism and the Infiltration of Shariah Law into American Society". There, now everyone is happy. By the way, this incident would have been much more tragic if the Muslim Loony had not been stopped by a Good Guy with a GUN. Stuff THAT in your ears, Gun Grabbers!

                      Have you seen the videos from Hong Kong? The people have taken to the streets to demand FREEDOM. They are now but ONE of NUMEROUS countries who have seen mass protests and rebellion against Tyranny and Communism, oppression and Shariah, in 2014. The Media won't tell you! No one reported the arrest and imprisonment of Iceland's corrupt bankers, either. The government does not want you to know that people everywhere are rebelling and hungry for liberty, while WE in America, sit on our lazy asses and watch our freedoms disappear. They don't want you to KNOW the power we hold if we bothered to stand up and unite. "Pay NO Attention to that Man Behind the Curtain"!  Stay stupid, become slaves.

                      The state of New Jersey is considering a new, Draconian law that would make it mandatory for citizens to turn in their firearms. This is of course, Confiscation by Force. Umm, I don't believe that ANYONE has the power to impose an UNCONSTITUTIONAL law or MANDATE to disarm law-abiding Americans. Not only would such an attempt fail, but it would incite riots that would make Ferguson, Missouri look like a day at Disneyland.


                          This is a fine line that both sides must approach with great caution. Martial Law is Obama's Dream, and those of us who have done our homework know all too well that this government thinks NOTHING of using False Flags to incite panic and civil unrest. Which then leads to our militarized Police Forces stepping in, then the U.N Forces if required, followed by the declaration of Martial Law and the indefinite reign of Barack Obama and friends. Blood WILL flow and neither side is prepared. Fortunately, the so-called, Right-Wing Extremists are better prepared than the liberal lefties. A lot of people believe that the Conservatives are ready, and I agree to a point. When you consider the number of us who are heavily armed and well-trained, we DO out-number even the Government Cops. Yet the government has the CDC, and now they have Ebola. You can't shoot diseases. Pretty scary, huh? Okay, go watch TV now.

                         The Department of Agriculture purchased 85, fully-automatic machine guns last week.  I guess Cliven Bundy's cattle must be trespassing again. Maybe they have Mad Cow Disease ! OR, maybe it's the people like my brothers and sisters of the Oathkeepers that will be in the sights of those guns. Could be that Dirty Harry and Son are still salivating over that Bundy land and the Japanese money waving under their snotty noses. In any case, be careful not to piss-off your local milk inspector unless you pat him down first.

                        Andrew Cuomo did a little traveling last week it seems. Poll results strongly suggest that most New Yorkers are not pleased with his travel when there are so many issues to deal with right HERE in NY. Why were 4 governors flown to Afghanistan on the people's tab ? Well, it IS an election year ! It has been 103 days since Cuomo appeared at a single, local event or meeting, nor has he been present at the Capitol or Governor's Mansion in over 30 days. Avoiding the local press?


                         We know he's sucking up to the downstate Dems. With any luck, he might just be enjoying his final days in office, and even better if he is packing his bags for a stint in Coxsackie.  Cuomo is in serious trouble this time, and it won't be easy to make the Moreland Scandal go away.  My friend FUD, also known as Fred Dicker, was once a Cuomo supporter but all that changed when the Safe Act was forced through. FUD says that Cuomo will hide in the city until after the election, to avoid debating Astorino upstate, where Cuomo is considered Public Enemy Number One.  LOL!!


                         Cuomo is an accomplished "Hider". He hid when we surrounded the Capitol to protest his violation of our Constitutional Rights. He hid for over a week when the Moreland story broke and no one knew where he was. No One! Now he is hiding from Rob Astorino and the upstate Conservatives. What a Hero !

                         To complement our first Beheading in the name of Islam, we now also have our first case of Ebola diagnosed on American soil. This guy traveled to Liberia, and came back to the U.S with a little souvenir that could kill millions of people in a very short time. Sooo, WHY are we allowing free travel between here and the affected countries? Good question. Much like, "Why are our borders wide-open to criminals, terrorists, diseases and human leeches"?    The answer to all these things is very simple. We have these perilous issues facing us all because we do nothing to DEMAND anything different from our Congress. We are reaping what our apathy has sown. Sleep well.
