Why Bear False Witness Against President Obama?
He’s not Kenyan or a communist.
He is not a secret radical Jihadist.
He didn’t take over the healthcare system.
He didn’t raise your taxes.
He didn’t increase the deficit.
He didn’t give out free phones.
He didn’t set up FEMA camps for white people.
He didn’t go on an apology tour.
He didn’t invade Texas during Jade Helm.
President Barack Hussein Obama is more popular than Ronald Reagan when he finished his last term. So why do so many still believe the lies about our President?
This simple phrase is a crucial feature of the America legal system. Individuals can not be accused of a crime or violation of policy if the law or policy did not exists at the time. The United State Constitution requires a law to exist before it can be broken. The manufactured allegations against Secretary of State Hillary Clinton violate this principle.
From 2008 to 2012 Clinton used a private email server and then printed those records after leaving office. The preservation of these records meet, in fact, the standards and practices that existed at the time. Subsequently, the federal government raised the bar. The Secretary herself has said that, in hindsight, she could have done better.
In 2009, IRM introduced SMART throughout the Department, enabling employees to preserve a record copy of emails through their Department email accounts without having to print and file them. However, the Office of the Secretary elected not to use SMART to preserve emails, in part because of concerns that the system would allow overly broad access to sensitive materials. As a result, printing and filing remained the only method by which emails could properly be preserved within the Office of the Secretary in full compliance with existing FAM guidance. In August 2012, OMB and NARA issued a memorandum requiring agencies to eliminate paper recordkeeping and manage all email records in an electronic format by December 31, 2016. [Warning PDF]
At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.
Killing jobs. Killing a state. Is it any wonder, young people have to leave the state to find a decent job? Public services are essential for a middle class to survive.
The budget agreement announced today by legislative leaders and the Governor proposes a total of $6.778 billion in state appropriated dollars for FY 2017. This is a decrease of 5.1 percent from the initial FY 2016 budget and of 1.2 percent from the final FY 2016 budget after mid-year budget cuts and supplemental appropriations. Next year’s budget would be 6.3 percent smaller than in FY 2015 and the smallest since FY 2007. Adjusted for inflation, next year’s budget looks to be $936 million, or 12.1 percent, smaller than that of ten years ago.
“Pour son feuilleton hebdomadaire, France 2 a suivi l’équipe de France des boulangers, qui tente de décrocher le titre mondial.”
- “Déborah, boulangère dans la région de Strasbourg (Alsace) prépare la Coupe du monde depuis trois ans.”
- “L’équipe hollandaise, qui ouvre la compétition, a huit heures pour réaliser plus de 300 produits. Une viennoiserie surprise doit être réalisée avec des ingrédients tirés au sort.”
- “Ils ont huit heures pour produire les meilleurs pains et les meilleures viennoiseries. Sur un stand voisin, un entraîneur français encourage en chinois son équipe venue de Shanghai….Thème de l’épreuve artistique : le sport. L’équipe de France a choisi le cyclisme.”
- “Soulagement. La France termine tout juste dans les temps. Claude respire, il semble sortir d’une apnée de 8 heures. Le moment est venu de présenter la production au jury. Les juges observent, sentent et dégustent.”
- “Au moment du palmarès, l’amoureux de Déborah est lui aussi dans le public. La France obtient la 3eme place du podium. Taiwan est deuxième et la Coupe du monde de la boulangerie revient finalement à la Corée du Sud, dont l’archer a séduit le jury.”
The revenue losses understate the total effect on the national debt because they do not include the additional interest that would accrue as a result. Including interest costs, the proposal
would add $11.2 trillion to the national debt by 2026 and $3
4.1 trillion by 2036 (table 4 and figure 1). Assuming the tax cuts are not offset by spending cuts, the national debt would rise by
an estimated 39 percent of GDP in 2026 and by nearly
80 percent of GDP by 2036.
Trumps thinks America wages are too high to be competitive globally. Taxes are too high on the rich.
Oh yeah, it is harder today being a rich, white man than 50 years ago. Take America Back?
Turning a pork shoulder into a tasty meal is worth the wait.
I quartered the pork shoulder to brown each side. Browning is always worth the wait. I then removed the quarters and browned the onions and bell peppers, adding some Tony‘s to the hot pork and the vegetables.
All of these cooked ingredients went into the crock pot with vegetable stock, fresh oregano, and Tex-Mex seasoning (cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, chipotle powder, pepper and salt. It cooked for about 6 hours in low.
After cooling over night, I dumped the pork into a bowl and pulled about. I was careful to remove and chunks of fat. It wasn’t hard to find because of the texture. Everything went back into the crock pot to reheat and serve.
And yet, too many use scripture to condemn the poor, the broken or the “other.” Too many use scripture to justify having and refusing to have mercy on the have nots. If we are made in the image of God, then what image of God do you have?
God is love.
32 “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. 35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
37 “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
