Sabotaging a President

Democrats are jumping on the "cause célèbre"'s the  fun thing to do for the moment and solidifying their belief that they are on the right side of history. Kooky, but true.

The latest complaint from the left-wing Democrats is that Republicans are on the defensive regarding Donald Trump...that Republicans have nothing of value to offer...Trump is a joke...Obamacare is great...the wall is stupid...and don't you dare lower the corporate tax--that might create jobs and American wealth for heavens sake.

They fail to mention that they have voted against every Trump measure before them in Congress. The vocal  minority has gone overboard denigrating our president, even attacking Melania, Barron, Ivanka and Jared and are only grasping for relevance in communities across the nation trying in desperation to keep their voter base intact.

Now Judicial Watch says it has uncovered what may turn out to be a case study in the art of sabotaging a sitting president.


An Impatient Driver on Lake Osborne

We who live out here see it all of the time. Crazy drivers, too impatient to slow down for the wildlife that crosses the road...speeding, in a hurry to get to Publix. Doves and turtles have been run over. Drivers beep their horns at them...ducks don't understand...they just waddle across the road. It is their habitat too. One of these days it will be a human being...then what? Will we finally get speed bumps? Considerate drivers? How can anyone be in that big of a hurry to kill a living, breathing animal that is hurting no one?

Slow down and smell the roses and remember that our wildlife needs protection.

NATO Chucklers

It's been reported that some of the members of NATO chuckled when President Trump said that they should be paying their fair share.

In the 28-nation NATO alliance, total defense spending topped $900 billion in 2015. The United States paid $650 billion, or 73%, of the total budget.

What Allen West has to say about Maxine

No one really knew of her until she started running her mouth with outrageous charges. Now she won't shut up. You have to wonder how people like this get elected. She has now reinvented herself from "corrupt" to the most outspoken anti-Trump Democrat in D.C. and now is some sort of hero to all the snowflakes.

Maxine Waters, always looking like a fool

When Maxine Waters was interviewed on live TV, she was asked about her push to cause the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

In this article, former Congressman Allen B. West takes her to task for her foundless charges. He also does not spare MSNBC for aiding and abetting her departure from reality. There has yet to be ANY crime committed, much less one that rises to the levels of High Crimes and Treason.

Who is Vladimir's puppet?

"During the third Presidential debate, Hillary Clinton accused Donald Trump of being Vladimir Putin’s puppet. The media ran with the accusation. But Obama’s former CIA Director just gave testimony revealing that everything you thought you knew about the Russian scandal is dead wrong.

Back in January, BuzzFeed published an unverified opposition research memo stating the Russians had compromising information on President Trump. The document was filled with scandalous gossip and fake news. There was – however – one candidate the Russians did have compromising information on."

And it was Hillary Clinton.

Sign the Petition

Sign the Petition calling on the White House to open an official investigation into Rich’s death.

When Rich was killed in 2016, Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange called for an investigation into the homicide. Why would a wanted man, holed up in an Ecuadorian embassy in London care at all who killed the Washington, DC-based staffer? That question remains unanswered but some believe he was the source of the DNC database of emails which, arguably, cost Hillary Clinton the 2016 presidential election.[Liberty Headlines]

Terror in Minnesota

What in the hell are they thinking?

"The bodies of the latest terror victims in Manchester haven’t even been laid to rest yet, and liberal loons are already up to their usual antics, lecturing everyone who’s calling for increased border security as racists and bigots.

Liberal governors across our country are all too eager to help with ISIS’ mission of destruction, with Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton being the most vocal idiot as of late, with his plans to welcome “refugees” into his state by the droves, recently telling his citizens, 'if you don’t like immigrants, get out of Minnesota'!

With the start of Ramadan kicking off today, Muslims are predictably up to their usual antics. Now the entire town of Minneapolis has just erupted into massive chaos, after what these very Muslim refugees who were welcomed by Governor Dayton were just caught doing."

Memorial Day

As liberals remove memorials and statutes of our confederate soldiers and try to erase our history, Memorial Day celebrates and honors all Americans who died while in the military service.

Honoring Robert E. Lee on Memorial Day

"The first official Memorial Day observation (then called Decoration Day) was held on May 30, 1868 at the former mansion of Robert E. Lee in Arlington, Virginia.
Various Washington officials, including Gen. and Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant, presided over the ceremonies. After speeches, children from the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Orphan Home and members of the GAR made their way through the cemetery, strewing flowers on both Union and Confederate graves, reciting prayers and singing hymns.
There were no “foreign” soldiers honored in that first solemn ceremony, since both Union and Confederate soldiers, dead in battle, were Americans."

America's strongest asset is Patriot, Donald Trump

In September, 2016, Scott Adams switched from supporting Hillary Clinton to backing Trump too—and after Trump won the US presidency, simply stated the obvious: “It turns out he was Keyser Söze all along – and by that I mean smarter than you thought.”


Obama Meddling in Foreign Elections

"The stench of the Obama administration is beginning to overwhelm Washington. From leftist politicos screaming for Trump’s head based upon fairy tales backed by zero evidence--

to the corrupt mainstream media parroting the Democrat mantra to dump Trump--

to foreign leaders now providing evidence of Barack Hussein meddling in foreign elections bankrolled by US taxpayer dollars,

the depth of the corruption is breathtaking and should land many high-profile Democrats in federal prison, hopefully and especially Hussein himself," says Thomas Madison

It's a George Soros connection and "senators are asking Tillerson to launch a full-scale investigation into these funding efforts in order to determine how exactly the Obama administration sought to promote left-leaning causes and political parties across the globe."

Supreme Court to decide on Travel Ban Order

When Donald Trump took the oath of office as our 45th president, he swore to uphold our Constitution.

Giving campaign statements more credence than Trump swearing to uphold the Constitution, Judges decided that these statements showed his true intent when he issued his Executive Travel Ban Order. Security of our country was irrelevant--it was discrimination against the Muslim religion.

And then you have Obama who restricted visas for seven Muslim-majority countries — Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen where there was no problem with the courts.

"The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court injunction against President Trump's March 6 executive order on immigration. The injunction blocked the portion of the order that suspended the entry of nationals from Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen into the United States. The Fourth Circuit concluded that the motivation for the executive order was religious in nature in violation of the First Amendment. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he would appeal the case to the Supreme Court" [Ballotpedia]

It took me a very long time to buy a Peter D'amico painting. Although I always loved and admired his art for years, it just didn't go with my decor which is all animal and earth tones. But when he died a few weeks ago, I bought this painting and actually found a spot where it "works."

Trump at NATO

NATO is an Alliance that consists of 28 independent member countries across North America and Europe, the newest of which, Albania and Croatia, joined in April 2009. An additional 22 countries participate in NATO's Partnership for Peace program, with 15 other countries involved in institutionalized dialogue programs. The combined military spending of all NATO members constitutes over 70% of the global total. Members' defense spending is supposed to amount to at least 2% of GDP

Trump Poll numbers slightly up

Not that I particularly like polls--they are somewhat suspect to me ever since Donald Trump's win on election night. The polls got it all wrong leading up to November 8, 2016. Remember that Clinton was predicted to win by an 84 percent chance while Trump had a 16 percent chance, according to The Upshot  Well, we all know how that all turned out.

On Wednesday, Rasmussen Reports released its daily presidential tracking poll, putting Trump at a 48 percent approval rating. That’s a four-point jump in two days from Rasmussen, and a five point increase from his recent low of 43 percent on May 16.

Minnesota Muslim Jihadists

"Clare Lopez, vice president of research and analysis for the Washington-based Center for Security Policy, said the incident in Minneapolis very well could indicate the tip of a very dangerous iceberg.

Local law enforcement knows that the Minneapolis neighborhood of Cedar-Riverside already functions as a Somali enclave known as 'Little Mogadishu,' where Shariah prevails, not U.S. constitutional law, or Minnesota law or Minneapolis municipal law.

It is, in effect, a no-go zone, where local police must be wary for their security if they enter in uniforms or police cruisers, Lopez said. It is a place that exports jihadist suicide bombers to Islamic terror groups like al-Shabaab and the Islamic State.

Now is the time to act. Police should use the arrests of the two jihadists as a pretext to go in and clean out the neighborhood, Lopez said."

Read about these Jihadists... who live in an American town under Sharia Law where the police fear to tread and our Constitution doesn't matter.

Why aren't we doing anything about it? Ask the next politically correct liberal you meet.

ISIS in Philippines--Duterte declares Martial Law in Mindanao

“Anyone now holding a gun, confronting the government with violence, my orders are spare no one, let us solve the problems of Mindanao once and for all," Duterte said Wednesday.
“If I think you should die, you will die. If you fight us, you will die. If there's an open defiance, you will die, and if it means many people dying, so be it. That's how it is,” he added.

ISIS is sneaking closer to our country and operating their mayhem in the Northern hemisphere. At least seven police officers were killed in Marawi by ISIS. President Rodrigo Duterte placed the entire island of Mindanao under martial law for 60 days after battles between government troops and the Maute (ISIS) in Marawi escalated

$1,000,000 Dinner Celebration

The Lake Worth Dollars for Scholars and the Lake Worth High School Alumni Foundation celebrated the one million dollar level of awarding scholarships to deserving students at Lake Worth high. There is also the Barry Grunow Fund that awards scholarships to Palm Beach County students who want to pursue education as their profession.

Held at the beautiful Atlantis Country Club, the room was filled with those who have helped contribute towards this million dollar success.

Dr. Annette Gilbert, class of 1975 and now the Guidance Counselor at Lake Worth High and a LWHS Alumni Board member along with her son Brandon, Class of 2001, performed the song, "The Greatest Love of All."  The high school chorus gave an outstanding performance as well.

Its founding president Dennis Dorsey spoke, as well as David Cantley, former principal of the school who talked to us about the Dollars for Scholars history. Harold Gilmore, class of 1947, is the president of the LWHS Alumni Foundation and the master of ceremonies for Tuesday night's festivities.

Many there were politicians, past and present from the PB county school board, present commissioners Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell and Commissioner Herman Robinson from Lake Worth, and former commissioners Honey Duncan and Nadine Burns. Elvis Epps, the new principal of Lake Worth High School was also there enjoying the evening as well as Bradley Harper, our newly elected judge in Palm Beach County's 15th Circuit Court, a former recipient of a scholarship.

Bitching about everything Trump - Now it's the Budget

While the whole world is focused on the horrors of Manchester, the liberals prepare for their assault on the President’s budget. Their plan will be to grow every entitlement program at the cost of the military. In this article, Allen West takes us to where the military is right now and then where it should be. You will also understand the tactics of the Democrat party as they buy their votes with your dollars.

What's the Budget priority?  More Food Stamps or Vanquishing the Enemy?

Read Allen West's article

Even while the president was on his Mid-East trip building bridges, the news media was focused on bashing him on the firing of James Comey and the fabricated Russian "collusion."

And now just glancing at the headlines of the Palm Beach Post, what is their choice today as the top story? "CBO: 23M lose coverage in newer bill," rather than spotlighting a positive that this budget would reduced spending by $110 billion over 10 years.

We get all these horror stories and essentially the Left, knowing that the status quo is unsustainable (average premiums rose 105% in 2017 for Obamacare) and that we must get to a balanced budget.  They won't accept anything less than socialized medicine or Single Payer healthcare with huge premium subsidies to all, even those who are non-citizens, at the expense of our national security.
Study on Obamacare

Trump was elected not to fix what was there, but to repeal and replace healthcare and reduce our spending. Basically, liberals  want to bitch about everything Trump.

Russian-Trump Collusion

Florida Concealed Weapons Holders database hacked

By: Associated Press
May 23, 2017

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Officials say hackers may have obtained the names of more than 16,000 people who have Florida concealed weapon permits

The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services announced Monday they had discovered a data breach of the online payment system that processes payments for applications and permits.
Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam has ordered a review of the department's cybersecurity measures. State law enforcement is investigating the breach, which authorities suspect originated from overseas.

The agency stated that no financial information was obtained.

The department also warned that the breach may have revealed the social security numbers of 469 customers. The agency plans on offering free credit protection for one year to these individuals.

The Florida Legislature in 2006 passed a law that made the names of concealed weapon permit holders confidential.

Damn, I'd better load this thing.

  • Building condition (locker rooms and restrooms): Fair to good
  • Building deficiencies: Roof cover and minor mechanical and plumbing issues
  • Pump House deficiencies: Replace roof system. interior piping near end of its useful life--needs to be removed and replaced.
Commissioner Remarks: Some of which are reasonable; others bizarre.

Mayor Triolo: That kind of feature (pool) does not have to make money--just needs to be sustainable.
Commissioner Hardy: Parroting resident Peggy Fisher, Hardy asked, "Which information do I trust?" (William Waters or the engineering firm} Why did the city pay Kimley-Horn to do an engineering report if we can't trust them?
Commissioner Amoroso: Says if the pool is opened, we lose $600,00; if closed, we lose $300,000. If it doesn't beak even, you the tax payer is paying for it...needs to be modernized...ask about the penny sales tax to be used for project.
Vice Mayor Maxwell: "This pool has been used as a political pawn; it has been prostituted. in some ways." Concerned about the huge financial loss.
Commissioner Robinson:  "Would love to see a family friendly pool--not necessarily in that location--not interested in spending $500,000 and getting the same thing." Last night at the Atlantis Country Club, you told me you wanted to save the pool.

Lake Worth Pool 1920

It was directly across from the Atlantic ocean then. Why is this not still the ideal location?
It was crowded and people flocked to our salt water pool at the Lake Worth Casino.
We have attracted swim clubs, even the Navy Seals trained here.

We now have a heated fresh water pool and people love our pool. It's the ideal place to go swim, exercise and relax at our Olympic Pool at the Lake Worth beach.

Preserving our south Florida soils, uplands and wetlands

Palm Beach Post
May 22, 2017 Local News
By:  Drew Martin

Preserving our South Florida soils, uplands, wetlands

Currently, Southeast Florida continues to destroy many of its remaining open areas for development.

These areas hold native plants, soils and habitat for migratory birds. We continue to focus on growth rather than quality of life. A large amount of the water in our area is ground water.

In order to have clean ground water we need to have open areas where water can reside and percolate into our aquifer. Open areas also provide a place for storm water to accumulate, which helps to prevent flooding. Development plans are failing to protect the open areas. Planned Unit Developments (PUDs) with (planned) golf courses are now permitting the golf courses to be developed thus removing more open space.

The more we remove open space and natural areas the more we reduce aquifer recharge and increase aquifer contamination. An example is Century Village off Okeechobee Boulevard in West Palm Beach. The development was planned with a large golf course. That golf course is now being eliminated. Where will the water that accumulated on this golf course during storms go? Most likely more water will be pumped out into the ocean during heavy rains. This will damage our coral reefs. New scientific models show the reefs off Palm Beach County and northern Broward County are particularly valuable to reducing storm surge damage. How many billions in dollars of property value are put at risk by building on open space.

The Agricultural Reserve in western Palm Beach County is being destroyed by small cuts, by constant changes in development zoning. The loss of open space will negatively impact drinking water and increase the risk of flooding. At the same time, the loss of native trees and shrubs increases the heat of the day. Migratory birds need these open areas to rest between flights.

In Miami-Dade County, an area known as Pineland Rocklands is up for development for a Wal-mart store. Natural areas are what bring people to Florida. They enhance property values and improve the mental health of the residents.

We need to change our priorities and protect the environment first.
