Memorial day – ‘Arlington’

Remembering all those who have given so much so that we can be free. Best wishes to everyone for an enjoyable weekend with friends and family. I only recently heard this song, and so appropriate for today.

“Arlington” is sung from the viewpoint of a soldier, killed in battle and buried at Arlington National Cemetery. It was inspired by United States Marine Corps Corporal Patrick Nixon, who died in battle in 2003.

Trade deal moves forward. Support Elizabeth Warren in stopping this bill

In the most unreported story, the trade bill moves forward. Did I ever think I would be aligned with Liz Warren? The Senators were forced to view the bill in a “secret room” without pen or pencil to take notes, forbidden to talk about the bill. No Senator read or has a clue what is in the bill. I understand Orin Hatch was behind the push to pass the bill. The bill gives more power to the Presidents now and in the future. Here is a link to the vote tally https://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/114-2015/s191

The TPP, which is near completion after more than five years of negotiations, would create a free trade zone covering 40 percent of the world economy. Trading partners have said they want to see fast-track enacted before finalizing the pact, a goal the administration has set for this year.

“Our nation’s economic health and prestige are on the line today,” said Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, Utah Republican and chairman of the Finance Committee, who led the floor debate on passing the bill known as Trade Promotion Authority. The bill would allow Mr. Obama to conclude trade deals he has been trying to

In a victory for President Barack Obama, the Senate passed bipartisan legislation Friday night to strengthen the administration’s hand in global trade talks, clearing the way for a highly unpredictable summer showdown in the House.

The vote was 62-37 on the bill, which would let Obama complete trade deals that Congress could approve or reject, but not change. A total of 48 Republicans supported the bill, but only 14 the Senate’s 44 Democrats backed a president of their own party on legislation near the top of his second-term agenda.

Senate passage of the trade bill capped two weeks of tense votes and near-death experiences for legislation the administration hopes will help complete an agreement with Japan and 10 other countries in the Pacific region.

Clinton latest email dump – ‘Owns Libya policy from start to finish’

No big surprise. Check out the PDF e-mail and who all was all copied. One can only wonder why some names had to be scrubbed. Libya is her baby. From start to finish. What different does it make? Ask Gaddafi.

CNSNews.com) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had “leadership/ownership/stewardship of this country’s Libya policy from start to finish,” says an email written by one of Clinton’s top aides–and forwarded to Clinton herself–as the Libyan rebellion that sought the overthrow of Muammar Qadhafi appeared to be nearing a triumphant moment.

The email is one of those the State Department has thus far given to the House Select Committee on Benghazi. It is among 349 pages of those emails that were obtained by the New York Times and that the Times has posted online in a PDF.

This email about Clinton’s “ownership” of U.S. Libya policy was sent—on the East Coast of the United States–at 7:40 p.m. on Sunday, August 21, 2011. By then, in Tripoli, Libya, it was already 1:40 a.m. on the morning of Monday, August 22.  More at  CNS

Narco cops told to stop arresting those over 40

When I first caught this news, I thought it was something from The Onion. But apparently no. So all of you city dwellers, run do not walk to the nearest exit while you still can. New York City, the next Detroit in the making. Look for the ads to go up. Wanted. Pushers over the age of 40. What could go wrong. Here we go:

The city’s narcotics cops are being told to stop arresting suspects over the age of 40 — a major strategy shift designed to target younger dealers, who are more likely to carry guns and use them, The Post has learned.

Top brass issued a directive that makes it all but impossible for cops to bust older drug suspects, in order to combat a spike in shootings — which are up 7 percent in 2015 compared with the same period last year and 12 percent over the last four weeks, police sources said.

The new policy was laid out in a May 14 memo obtained by The Post that scolded police bosses for busting people outside the 18-40 demographic — and demanded written explanations for arrests of midlife perps.

Division commanders who got that memo immediately ordered the rank and file to stop making collars in that age group and threatened officers with transfers and other discipline if they did not comply, according to multiple police sources. More over at the New York Post

Howard Dean and Hillary Clinton agree – Clinton can’t come up with any accomplishments

Well I traded up from my $175.00 computer to an Acer $399.00. I sure miss my Apple Mac. Windows8 really is a chore. I hope whoever has my computer enjoys it as much as I did. So, I had lots of free time this morning and went over to MSNBC just to get the blood moving. Yes, crickets chirping when they asked the Democrat focus group Hillary’s achievements. That portion is missing in the video, but wait, I recall Hillary couldn’t come up with anything either. Enjoy.

Hillary can’t come up with anything.

NYC thinking about amnesty for one Million open warrants

Finally back at the Bunker. During the trip had my computer stolen. This $175.00 ASUS laptop doesn’t cut it after my Mac! Anywho, hope my readers are still hanging in. This short post ought to get the blood moving about. NYC is going to get the best of the Progressive movement. Enjoy the crime.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is behind a controversial proposal to grant amnesty to more than 1 million people with open warrants for low-level offenses.

But some experts worry it could cause crime to skyrocket.

First he called for reduced penalties for smoking marijuana. Now, Bratton wants to explore granting amnesty to 1.2 million city residents with open warrants for low-level offenses, people who run the risk of being arrested for failing to resolve tickets for drinking in public, disorderly conduct and the like, CBS2’s Marcia Kramer reported Monday.

There is one statistic that shows the magnitude of the problem. Last year, of the hundreds of thousands of tickets that were given out for low-level offenses, fully 40 percent of the people either skipped the proceedings or didn’t show up, Kramer reported.

Obama: ‘We are going to have to change the way the media reports

We know that before Obama ends his regime that everything will be done to control the media. Here we have Fox in the crosshairs. But make no mistake, they will be coming after us lowly bloggers. I am on the road back to the Bunker, so may not get a chance to make my rounds. Sirius radio should keep be in the know. As of now, I can listen to it via the radio. Here we go:

FULL REMARKS: Obama Swipes at Fox: Pushing Narrative That Poor People Are ‘Leeches’. President Obama: ‘We’re Going to Have to Change How the Media Reports’. President Obama Destroys Fox News For Spreading Negative Stereotypes About The Poor!
President Obama spoke at a poverty forum at Georgetown University earlier today and took a swipe at Fox News for, as he put it, perpetuating certain stereotypes about poor people. The president addressed media efforts to “suggest the poor are sponges, leeches,” and that they’re “lazy” and undeserving.”
OBAMA SLAMS FOX NEWS President jabs network over portrayal of poverty
“If you watch Fox News on a regular basis,” Obama said, “it is a constant menu––they will find folks who make me mad, I don’t know where they find them.”

He’s referring to the “I just want a free Obamaphone” stuff that adds to a narrative, the president lamented, that needs to change, because that affects “people’s impressions of what it’s like to struggle in this economy.”
