Hannity to GOP: If Obamacare’s funded ‘you’ve lost me – I’m done’

Comments Off on Hannity to GOP: If Obamacare’s funded ‘you’ve lost me – I’m done’

 

1Sean Hannity told U.S. Rep Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., that if the GOP-controlled House decides to fund Obamacare when Congress meets again in September… they will lose his support.

Gowdy said, “We just have to have one of those ‘come to Jesus moments’ as a party where we say, ‘You know, what do we stand for? What is enough to fight over?’”

Hannity responded, “This is it for me. I’m going to tell you, congressman, you guys don’t do this, you’ve lost me. I’m done. Because there’s no difference between you, then, and the Democrats at that point. None.”

Obama’s brother linked to Muslim Brotherhood

Comments Off on Obama’s brother linked to Muslim Brotherhood

From or friend, Jerome Corsi of World Net Daily:

 

NEW YORK – President Obama’s half-brother in Kenya could cause the White House more headaches over new evidence linking him to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and establishing that controversial IRS supervisor Lois Lerner signed his tax-exempt approval letter.

Malik Obama’s oversight of the Muslim Brotherhood’s international investments is one reason for the Obama administration’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood, according to an Egyptian report citing the vice president of the Supreme Constitutional Court of Egypt, Tehani al-Gebali

In a news report on Egyptian television of a Gebali speech, translated by researcher Walid Shoebat, a former Palestinian Liberation Organization operative, Gebali said she would like “to inform the American people that their president’s brother Obama is one of the architects of the major investments of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

“We will carry out the law, and the Americans will not stop us,” she said. “We need to open the files and begin court sessions.

“The Obama administration cannot stop us; they know that they supported terrorism,” she continued. “We will open the files so these nations are exposed, to show how they collaborated with [the terrorists]. It is for this reason that the American administration fights us.”

Gallup: Unemployment Rate Jumps from 7.7% to 8.9% In 30 Days

Comments Off on Gallup: Unemployment Rate Jumps from 7.7% to 8.9% In 30 Days

`Outside of the federal government’s Bureau of Labor statistics, the Gallup polling organization also tracks the nation’s unemployment rate. While the BLS and Gallup findings might not always perfectly align, the trends almost always do and the small statistical differences just haven’t been worthy of note. But now Gallup is showing a sizable 30 day jump in the unemployment rate, from 7.7% on July 21 to 8.9% today.

This is an 18-month high.

At the end of July, the BLS showed a 7.4% unemployment rate, compared to Gallup’s 7.8%. Again, a difference not worthy of note. But Gallup’s upward trend to almost 9% in just the last three weeks is alarming, especially because this is not a poll with a history of wild swings due to statistical anomalies. Gallup’s sample size is a massive 30,000 adults and the rolling average is taken over a full 30 day period.

Gallup also shows an alarming increase in the number of underemployed (those with some work seeking more). During the same 30-day period, that number has jumped from 17.1% to 17.9%.

Why does any police force need this type of equipment? One more thing: Where’s that new mosque in TN?  oh yeah that’s right, Murfreesboro.


Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle

The Murfreesboro Police Department has acquired a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle from the Department of Defense through the Tennessee Department of General Services Property Utilization Division, Law Enforcement Support Office. The MRAP was acquired at no cost to the City of Murfreesboro (other than standard maintenance and transportation costs from Fort Campbell, KY).

After serving the US Army in the War on Terrorism, this armored vehicle will now have a post-war life and will continue to “protect and serve” by providing the department’s Special Operations Unit (SOU) with advanced ballistic protection during high-risk situations. The vehicle is capable of providing ballistic protection for SOU officers during transport, deployment and tactical operations where hostile, life-threatening gunfire from an armed suspect poses a danger to officers or innocent citizens.

Chief of Police Glenn Chrisman stated: “Law enforcement must be prepared for situations where they may face a deadly threat from an armed gunman. This piece of equipment will help protect officers who risk their lives to protect others, as well as innocent citizens who may be endangered by hostile gunfire. We appreciate the Department of Defense and their willingness to help p

PARIS TN: Drone company lets Henry County pilots know they won’t get in the way

Comments Off on PARIS TN: Drone company lets Henry County pilots know they won’t get in the way

Members of the Henry County Airport Committee examine this information sheet about a Savannah drone aircraft site during a safety briefing Wednesday at the airport.

A company flying drone aircraft in the Savannah area wants pilots flying out of the Henry County Airport to know they’re there.

Dave Daniels, chief of flight safety for the ISR Group, visited the airport Wednesday afternoon for a safety briefing and information session.

The company has operated a 6,200-acre research and development facility 10 miles east of Savannah for the past three years.

There, the company tests unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs — popularly known as drones.

Daniels met with airport officials and one local pilot to brief them about their operation, and how pilots can contact them if they’re in the area.

“That’s our primary concern,” Daniels said. “To make sure we don’t become a hazard to any other aircraft.”

Airport officials included Don Davenport, airport manager; Dell Carter, airport board chairman; and Jackie Jones, board member.

The company, which has operated UAVs in Iraq and Afghanistan, uses their Hardin County facility to explore non-military applications for their aircraft.

The company operates six models of UAVs, ranging from hand-launched models to the 400-pound Viking 400, which is capable of reaching altitudes of 4,000 feet above ground level.

Daniels said that among the most-used models are the Shadow Hawk, a camera-equipped helicopter which typically operates 100-400 feet off the ground, and the Scan Eagle, a fixed-wing aircraft with a maximum altitude of 1,500 feet.

Henry County residents won’t be seeing the company’s drones anytime soon, Daniels said. Any test flights the company makes are either over their property, or very close to it.

“We won’t go outside the boundaries of our property unless we have the ability to dead-stick (land) it back to our property,” Daniels said.

Ground observers maintain eye contact with the UAVs, or “birds” as Daniels called them, at all times.

The company also has four control towers, which are manned primarily to look for other aircraft.

The company posts information about flights at Memphis and Jackson airports.

“We just want you to know, more than anything else, that we’re going to stay out of your way,” Daniels said.

“This is not much different than having skydivers in the area,” Davenport said. “In fact, it’s safer.”

Daniels said the Savannah site will become one of the six sites selected by the Federal Aviation Administration as a Congressionally mandated site for testing civilian drone applications.

That decision, which would see the ISR facility grow to about 10,000 acres, will be made in December.

Possible non-military uses for the drones include agricultural, search and rescue, law enforcement, and emergency management applications.

Daniels said the company had been in talks with Mississippi Emergency Management officials about the UAV’s uses after a major hurricane or similar event.

The drones also could be used by the Tennessee Valley Authority to inspect power lines — a job currently being done by manned helicopters.

“It’s a lot cheaper to fly a lot of these little birds than it is a helicopter,” Daniels said.

Pilots who want flight information about the ISR facility near Savannah can call Daniels at 731-438-7591; or Davenport at 644-7933.

Alexander Lashes Out at Tea Party

Comments Off on Alexander Lashes Out at Tea Party

Facing an active campaign by grass-roots activists to defeat him in next year’s primary, Sen. Lamar Alexander penned a letter to the state’s largest newspaper defending his pragmatic, “problem solving” approach to governing. The letter in The Tennessean defends his record as a conservative who knows how to “get results.”

 

“Well, I learned to count in Maryville City Schools,” Alexander writes. “So I know that if you only have 45 votes and you need 60 senators to get something important done like balancing the budget and fixing the debt, then you have to work with other people — that is, IF you really care about solving the problem, IF you really want to get a result, instead of just making a speech.”

Alexander Lashes Out at Tea Party

 

It is a superficially compelling argument. It is an argument conservatives have heard for decades. Yes, the perfect can’t be the enemy of the good. Yes, we have to compromise to meet many of our goals. And, yes, a half-loaf is better than nothing.

 

But it begs the question. Where has Alexander’s “compromise” and “problem-solving” approach taken us? Alexander has often abetted the Democrats in the Senate, supporting their legislative agenda and providing support for Obama nominees. When has he been able to persuade Democrats to support a conservative issue? Alexander’s record suggests compromise is a one-way street, i.e. Republicans support Democrats. When do Democrats in the Senate ever repay the favor Alexander extends them?

 

The record of the “problem-solving” approach is fairly grim. It has given us $16 trillion in debt, ObamaCare, bailouts of Wall Street and the auto industry, trillion dollar deficits, sweeping new regulations, and government encroachment on ever more aspects of our lives.

 

Against this, Alexander proudly trumps his successful campaign to preserve the rights of people to fish at dams. That’s all well and good, but it isn’t exactly an even trade.

 

I have no doubt that Alexander is a fine man and a decent-enough Senator. Unfortunately, both he and the state’s junior Senator, Bob Corker, represent something of a wasted opportunity. Tennessee is a deeply conservative state. It is still one of only a handful of states that doesn’t have an income tax. Alexander and Corker, however, have voting records that better reflect the voters in Maine or Illinois.

 

There is perhaps a place for Alexander’s approach to governing. Tennessee isn’t that place.

Well in this update, I have to announce this poll is NOT accurate. It allows people to vote more than once, just refresh the page or go to another browser and you can vote again. Here’s the same poll’s numbers below taken at 9:10am August 22, less than 24 hrs from the above poll numbers.  You can see a huge difference slanted way in Lamar’s favor. No doubt these numbers were manipulated.  So sadly this poll can no longer be trusted.
