Happy New Year, DU!!

The President is doing all he can in spite of the Obstruction.. Including..

"Mr. Obama is also seeking to reshape the national debate over closing the facility in Cuba by casting it as a fiscal issue, arguing that keeping it open is cost-prohibitive."


Thank you, DI.. Happy New Year!

"It’s important to note that the president didn’t really want to nominate Boggs.."


It’s important to note that the president didn’t really want to nominate Boggs, so this isn’t exactly an example of Senate Democrats betraying the White House. Boggs was included as part of a compromise reached with Republican senators from Georgia, as part of a deal on blue slips (for more on what a blue slip is, see our coverage from March).

But Democrats in the upper chamber weren’t part of that agreement and were under no obligations to honor it.

MOre facts..

But, of course the reality won't stop those who want to continue taking out their ignorant rage on President.

Happy New Year, Major.. and as we say on the Island..

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe watched in an emotional moment for James W. Ray


James W. Ray sat silently in the front row of the church meeting room, rubbing his eyes.

Ray wasn’t mourning a loss. Rather, the Vietnam veteran and felon wept over something that had just been returned to him — the right to vote.

“Those are tears of joy,” observed Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who came to First Baptist Church in South Richmond on Thursday to formally restore the rights of Ray and two others.

The governor was commemorating a year in which the secretary of the commonwealth’s office restored the rights of 5,113 Virginians to vote, serve on a jury, hold public office and become notaries.


“This is a great day in my life,” said Ray, convicted in 2005 of a nonviolent felony. He received an official proclamation from the governor along with LaQuita Fairley and Verneda Muhammad.

“This is what’s great about being governor,” said McAuliffe, who became a little emotional himself at seeing Ray’s reaction.

“I’ve said many times I think it’s important that everybody in life gets a second chance,” the governor told the audience of parishioners, politicians and rights restoration advocates. They cheered and applauded frequently throughout the event as officials and former offenders alike told of trying to restore civil rights — and the impact restoration will have on their lives.


Second Chances, baby! Thank you Governor McAuliffe~ The sacred right to VOTE

I got a Picture! The moment they get the call from the President..

CNN Reporter confronts Lynch.. Lynch goes full on Hypocritical..

CNN Reporter Confronts NYPD Union Head About Cops Turning Backs to de Blasio

What he did say was, “We have to understand the betrayal that they feel.” Lynch kept saying that today is a day for mourning, and tomorrow everyone can go back to debating. He did not outright say whether these officers were right or wrong to do what they did.

Lynch, of course, has been incredibly critical of de Blasio, to the point where he blamed the mayor’s rhetoric about the police for the deaths of Ramos and his partner Wenjian Liu.


Yeah, "a day for mourning" and a day to show that we're not above Westboro Church.. we can Protest at funeral's too. Seems to me like Lynch was the one who made this happen with his inflammatory rhetoric.

YOOOHOOO!!! Your Karma bus has arrived! Remember him from January in West Virginia of Elk River


Shocking! NOT.

Freedom Industries President facing federal fraud charges

Charleston, WV - Gary Southern, President of Freedom Industries during the January 2014 MCHM spill into the Elk River, is facing charges of bankruptcy fraud, lying under oath and wire fraud.

According to the criminal complaint filed in federal court in Charleston, Southern lied under oath about his role at Freedom Industries prior to the spill in order to deflect blame from himself and protect himself financially.

FBI Special Agent James Lafferty II says in the criminal complaint that Southern engaged "in a pattern of deceitful behavior, which included numerous false and/or fraudulent statements about his role at Freedom, his role in the sale of Freedom to Chemstream, and his knowledge about conditions at the Etowah Facility.”

In bankruptcy court, Southern said under oath that his role with Freedom Industries prior to its sale to Chemstream, a Pennsylvania company that bought Freedom on December 6, 2013, was as a "part-time financial-type consultant," and that his role in Freedom Industries sale to Chemstream was "superficial."


FEMA to the Rescue.. Were they grateful? I hope so.

FEMA Brings Water to Residents Affected by Water Ban


Ooops .. Lies didn't work this time.

UPDATE.. "Four Executives Indicted From Company Behind West Virginia Chemical Spill"

The U.S. Attorney General’s office has filed an indictment against four executives of the company that contaminated drinking water for 300,000 West Virginians this past January, alleging violations of the Clean Water Act.

The indictment marks the second time this month that former Freedom Industries CEO Gary Southern has been charged with violations related to a massive chemical spill that saw 10,000 gallons of a coal-cleaning chemical called crude MCHM dumped into West Virginia’s Elk River. Also named in Wednesdsay’s indictment are company ex-president Dennis Farrell, former secretary William Tis, and onetime vice president Charles Herzing.
