Trouble With Schools, is Fox’s callous take on educating refugee children in a Maryland school district. Kilmeade insists they come to Obama’s America because they get big bucks. Just “send them back,” no matter how dangerous their own countries are.

The water is finally safe to drink, says the mayor of Toledo, Ohio, although some skepticism still remains. “Residents of Toledo, its suburbs and small areas of southeastern Michigan began lining up for water Saturday after news of the contamination surfaced,”reported USA Today. Most media outlets have failed to mention what caused the exuberant toxic, algal blooms. They are reporting the effect, not the cause.
This is not merely a result of Mother Nature randomly throwing a fit and creating a mess of Cyanobacterial blooms. The amount of phosphorus going into the lake has risen every year since the mid-1990s, and toxic algal blooms will increase as more toxic runoff from fertilizer changes the ecosystem. Unless the runoff from big farming is curtailed, this problem will continue to grow. Imagine if an area as large as Chicago or NYC suffers from contamination like this Lake Erie mess. The NOAA Great Lakes Center For Excellence says,
The increased presence of nutrients such as phosphorous is largely due to poor farming practices such as high use of fertilizers and presence of livestock near water supplies, as well as effluent and run-off from towns and cities near waterways…Pesticides and other chemicals may affect the natural grazers which would otherwise control algal growth and their presence increases the risk of blooms.
Naturally, Republicans will ignore the harsh reality that the lack of regulations on disposal of waste from industrialized farming caused the crisis. They will deny that climate change could also be bringing more intense spring rains, which would wash more agricultural runoff into Lake Erie. Remember the West Virginia crisis? Somehow, Speaker Boehner blamed President Obama for not enforcing those pesky EPA regulations. In 2012, the St. Louis Beacon touched on the reality of the EPA vs. the GOP:
The GOP-controlled U.S. House – in particular, the Energy and Commerce Committee – has taken aim at EPA regulations. In the first year after Republicans gained a House majority in 2010, about 160 votes were held against various environmental protections, including more than 80 votes on amendments or bills targeting the EPA.
True, environmental groups and water researchers have urged community leaders to cut down on the amount of fertilizer runoff into the shallowest of the Great Lakes. But legislators in these Republican-controlled states have stopped short of mandating the restrictions leveled upon farmers. As per usual, they know they are turning a blind eye to man-made pollution but will happily tell you it’s Mother Nature just acting crazy. These folks push the fallacy that it’s impossible for man to destroy our planet. What do you expect from idiotic evolution deniers?
In April, 2013, the seven-year term of the Boulder City, Nevada chief of police was fired from his position. During that time period, the small community that touches the Hoover Dam experienced one of the lowest crime rates in Nevada. He was fired for one reason: he was one of the very few non-LDS officials in town. Finn states, “For the past seven years I applied my education, training and experience to lead the police department with the goal of making Boulder City the safest community in the state of Nevada,” … “That goal was achieved almost every year.”
According to Ex-Police Chief Thomas Finn’s allegations, ‘this bedroom burg is a seething cauldron of intrigue, revenge and discrimination, ruled by a small, closely knit cabal of power players, a group of folks who, you might say, are all cut from the same cloth.’ Much like the nepotism afforded to many of Willard Romney’s Mormon brethren during the hosting of the 2002 Salt Lake City (Pork Barrel) Winter Olympics, this closely-knit LDS run city has some dirty corruption. Mr. Finn, now relocated to a Northern Nevada community is not giving up on exposing the unimaginable incompetence and abuse of power in Boulder City.
The attorney who had it in for Mr. Finn, the lawyer for the Mongols Motorcycle Gang Mr. Steve Stubbs (Stubby), understands now that “Karma is a bitch.” He is under investigation for shady law practices and corruption involving collusion with the BCPD Regarding the concern of the former Chief of Police, Stubby was pissed his gang friends were being closely watched, considering their history of violence. Stubbs complained,
“He was going to have a zero tolerance policy against the Mongols for every little thing. People were given handlebar tickets, jaywalking tickets, unconstitutional tickets,” said Stephen Stubbs, attorney for the Mongols.
How dare a police chief closely monitor a motorcycle gang who ordered to shoot to kill any member of the Hell’s Angels who show up near the Mongols. Another interesting case related to more Mormon corruption is the case against the son of City Attorney Dave Olsen. His son Brian Olsen was arrested, but not charged in court, after Henderson police (the city between BC and Las Vegas) received a complaint about him from a female classmate who knew him from a cosmetology school that both attended. The classmate complained that Olsen, when borrowing her cellphone, located and sent two nude photos of her to his email address, court records from the lawsuit show. Mormons are the most sexually repressed —and thus deviously clandestine— of any group. There is a reason there’s more anonymously accessed porn in Utah than any other state. What I’d like to know now is, why the DA declined to prosecute. I wonder how they came to this conclusion, that, if the girl had nude photos of herself on the phone, it was her own fault and got what she deserved…? Probably.
Dave Olsen sued the Henderson Police, on behalf of his son, alleging police violated his constitutional rights to be free of unlawful arrest, false imprisonment and infliction of emotional distress. The judge ruled in favor of the Henderson PD and shortly thereafter, Finn was fired.
Even the current City Manager is less than squeaky clean. City Manager David Fraser has a problem paying his utility bills. In Boulder City, utilities such as power, water and garbage are paid through the city, which means the bills are public information. Records show that 11 times in the last 15 months, Fraser received delinquency notices from the city for not paying his bills. Four times, he was sent disconnect notices. Fraser, who earns $192,000 per year in salary and benefits, ordered city workers to stop the disconnections.
Mr. Finn and his wife Donna now reside in scenic Northern Nevada, far from the site of the misery inflicted upon him in Boulder City. Far from over, he intends to not only clear his own name and reputation which should never have been tarnished, but to show Boulder City who is running the show. He told a local CBS affiliate,
“I get regular contact from city employees and city residents who say, ‘you really may want to look at this.’ What else could they do to me? They tried to convict me of felonies. They fired me. They blast me still on a regular basis. I’m not going away,” Finn said.
Hopefully reason will prevail and Finn won’t stop pursuing his noble fight. Unfortunately, Willard Romney won’t go away, so we haven’t heard the last from him either. I’d much rather hear from the former BCPD Chief whose integrity far exceeds the members of the corrupt LDS community who served with him.
The most gorgeous of all mammals, anyone killing a tiger is less than human. Happy Tiger Day!

Dedicated to the Great – Big Cats of the World
The world is losing its Great Cats at a vicious speed. If we lose our apex predators, then we lose a vital part of this Earth. This page was created to help bring awareness and to be a voice for our Great-Big Cat Species. We must come together to help put a stop to this “Out of Control War” to kill our great cats, before it is too late. Once they are gone – there is no coming back.

I jokingly predicted earlier this week in a tweet: Next on Sunday’s Meet The Press: Lindsey Graham and John McCain discuss how Obama arranged the downing of MH Flight 17. Once again, Mr. Deference to Republicans with a side of hardline questions to Democrats, David Gregory, has engineered another episode of Meet The Press that could double as a commercial for the RNC. After an interview with Secretary of State Kerry, where facts were given regarding Gaza, MH 17 and the Border Crisis, a smirking Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appeared on the screen. I recorded it and the transcript below is directly from the interview. With regards to the Kerry comments, he said,
“That was the most delusional summary that I can imagine. It scares me that he (Secretary Kerry) believes that the world is in such good shape. America is the glue that holds the free world together. Leading from behind is not working, the world is adrift, and President Obama has become the King of Indecision. His policies are failing across the globe and it will come here soon.”
Gregory asked what Kerry left out, saying “what is the administration not yet prepared to do that you think must be done?” (Since Graham deserves the final say on the matter,as his foreign policy ideas have been the model of peace and prosperity for the U.S.)
“What he didn’t call Putin the THUG that he is. He didn’t call for the arming of the Ukraine so they can defend themselves against local separatists supported by Russia. All the enemies of our nation are being well supplied, Russia and Iran are helping Syria, a 160,000 have been slaughtered, John Kerry, by Russian-supplied weapons to Assad. Syria has become a safe-haven for terrorists to attack our nation.” (from Syria?) He then commented on how the Europeans weren’t going to lead on the issue of laying heavy sanctions on Putin and we can’t keep “leading from behind. There’s a battle of wills between the KGB colonel and the “Community Organizer” (aka black guy) and the colonel is winning. “
Next Graham went into harsh criticism mode on the “deliberative” nature of the president. He said, “it comes off as indecisive, he’s trying to be thoughtful, it comes off as weakness.” He then supported aggressive US-European sanctions on Russia, especially in the banking sector and he finished up his rant on how we should rebuild the missile defense systems “that Obama took down.”
The final comment was regarding the border crisis. Gregory asked if his party was prepared to move with the President on this. He predictably said, “there will be NO MONEY….we have to streamline and quicken deportations, there will be no immigration reform because of the crisis on the border, I blame OBAMA for this moment.” He then stated the 2015 “Republican Congress” with the House leading (of course) will need to solve this immigration crisis or they won’t win the White House in 2016. However, they are not prepared in any way to cooperate with anyone to change anything.
The South Carolinian best bud of Senator McCain, in a very short time, blamed Obama for the border crisis, the crisis in Palestine and the Ukrainian mess. Naturally, David Gregory had absolutely no challenges to any of those assertions and, in fact, followed up the interview with a largely Republican panel who parrotted Graham’s delusional ravings.
