TU: After being used once, rule limiting Jacksonville Council spending targeted for change

Personally, I think changing the current law is a VERY bad idea as the current law indicates waiting until the budget is proposed to include spending on projects or other matters. By changing this law, the council is allowing itself to move forward with spending, and unfettered spending at that, that was not planned for in the budget. Most of us understand the importance of a budget and the budgeting process and also understand you can't spend money from next years budget when…

CNS: At a Wednesday hearing, House Homeland Security Chairman Pete King (R.-N.Y.) said that "at a minimum" there are hundreds of "soldiers of Hezbollah" inside the United States.

This is not good news, but little that goes on under this administration is good news for our country.  Obama is at war with the very people of the very country he is a public servant of and is warring to overturn our form of government and replace it with socialism or what he considers "fair" and "just".  In the mean time, he and all his friends, in this administration, are not worrying themselves with doing the actual job they are supposed to do nor do they care about…

CNS: Obama Tells Russia He’ll Have ‘More Flexibility’ After Next Election

The man is a total ignoramous and a worm.  Imagine saying something like this near an open mike.  Did he think no one would know he was running around making deals with folks to wait until after he is re-elected and no one can do anything about what he does.  Basically, he admits here that once he can't get re-elected again, there will be no stopping him ON ANYTHING.  Everyone better be ready to FIGHT and get him GONE.…

CNS: Syria and Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood; which story do you think describes their real stance in both countries?

I have 2 related articles that I think you will find contradict each other as far as the Muslim Brotherhood goes.  I am not believing that Mr. Obama won't give these folks money in Egypt and am also not believing that all those middle eastern countries Obama meddled in will all be photo copies of Iran by the time the Muslim Brotherhood gets done.  The citizens of these countries fought and are fighting for democracy and freedom and what they will get ,before it is all over and…

Right Side News: A Future for Britain Free from Islamization: An Interview with British Freedom Party Chairman, Paul Weston

There is hope as you can see from this article.  If the Brits can consider looking for government officials to turn things around and recapture their country including all the areas that are not safe for some of their folks to even go into, then, there is also hope for us and stopping what is happening all over Europe from happening here even though we have a good beginning on it.  We must never allow for the use of Sharia law in our courts, and must remove any judge who attempts…

WND: Witness counters Trayvon Martin media narrative; Says 17-year-old was beating Zimmerman before shooting

Since the NAACP (Al Sharpton and others) is treating this like a cold blooded murder, and we are treated to pictures of this young man when he was 9 or 10 rather than as he looks now which is quite different and more ominous to someone, it tends to slant how people feel about this case, and the media has made a circus of it when the facts are not even yet known.  The NAACP also voiced concerns about Angela Corey being the lead investigator on the case. …

TU: Jacksonville council members want taxpayers to give them free parking

Our fine city council has now become fearful of the folks they represent apparently, and think the taxpayers should pick up the parking tab for them, so they don't have to deal with anyone on the street who might say something to them they don't feel they should have to listen to.  This sounds awfully like Ms. Lee who claims she was dressed down over in Hemming Plaza and now wants them to renovate to eliminate any chance of that happening again to the tune of $100,000 also paid…

Yokima Herald: Saturday Soapbox -- Here's what Saul Alinsky really said

To understand Obama, you must understand and be very familiar with Alinsky, because Obama is Alinski in a different body.  He follows the Alinsky rules for radicals exclusively, and he is all about Alinsky.   The thing this article does not mention is that Alinsky indicated the first real radical was the devil and he got his own empire.  Obama' through Alinsky's Rules for Radicals is all about and only about obtaining power, and everything is about personal self interest.  He…

The Blaze: Democrats, Socialists and Communists…We Are All Together’: Piven Draws Chilling Connections

This is a very nasty lady, and she is still around brain washing young people to follow this insane Alinsky Rules for Radicals philosophy, but now the words have been is the democrats, socialists, anachists, and communists (in her own words recorded and available via video).


According to Frances Fox Piven:

CNS News: Obama Pitching Part of Keystone XL Pipeline 'Nothing More Than a Con Job,' Okla. Republican Says

The man is a total fraud.  No approval from him is needed for this part of the pipeline to go in, but he is taking credit for allowing it to happen and using it, of course, for another photo op.  Every day a new lie or fairy tale! - An oil-state Republican says when President Barack Obama stands in Cushing, Okla. on…

TU: JTA Executive Director Michael Blaylock steps down

It is about time, but even with his resignation, Mr. Blaylock will still be in the position until September 30th which is a long time given the total lack of any type of oversight provided by Blaylock, who earns a salary of $273,000 a year, to remain in a job he was clearly not doing.  We can thank Larry Hannan for his  4 month long investigation, and The Times Union for informing the public of the results of Mr. Hannan's investigation on behalf of the Times Union for uncovering…

TU: Jacksonville on the hook for millions more in pension costs

Trust of the voters that our elected officials were acting in the best interests of the taxpayers is really at the root of this problem.  A number of years ago, Mayor Ed Austin, who came into office as a democrat and changed to republican during his time in office, signed an agreement with the unions allowing for the current guaranteed rate of return we currently have (it was a really bad agreement), and every mayor since has done nothing to fix the problem.  Another issue is the…

TU: Florida Senate OKs revised district map; wait for court approval begins

After the Florida Supreme Court threw out the last maps, the Florida Senate went back to work redrawing new maps and 2 districts have been changed to the political disadvantage of the people currently in those seats.  How have we gotten where we are when judges decide what our districts will be instead of the state legislators who are charged with this task?  I have included a copy of the newly drawn districts, and as you can clearly see Audrey Gibson's district is clearly gerry…

TU: PolitiJax: JEDC now operating under new name at new location

Well if you were uncomfortable with the JEDC wasting tax dollars and never doing any follow up and then, holding the folks receiving tax dollars from both our city and out state accountable to the terms of agreements that allowed them to receive money, look out, because the city has just done an "Acorn" on us.  They moved the JEDC and (drum roll) gave them a "new name".  They are now the Office of Economic Development and are moving to the second floor of city hall on March 26th.  Doesn't…

TU: JEDC OKs grants for Brooklyn apartment development

This bears reading and pay careful attention.  The JEDC has put together a deal that violates the law, so the suggestion has been made to just waive the 10 limit..................this is what happens when folks don't think they are tied to obeying the law and for many of the folks who have read some of the bills that go through council, you are very familiar with the constant use of the word "waive" when it comes to the law.  You would think we didn't have a single good law on…

TU: Downtown Jacksonville's Hemming Plaza could close for renovations

Someone insulted one of our city council persons, so now we need to spend 100,000 on renovations.  I suggest they trim the trees, clean it up and have a police detail that roams on a random schedule and arrests people who are breaking the law?  Certainly, I am sick, sick, sick of the constant spending our council just seems addicted to doing.  We DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY FOR THIS OR ANY OTHER NON ESSENTIAL PROJECTS.


Improvements are eyed as council committee chairwoman witnesses…
