Police Officer Prays with Flood Victims, Red Cross tells Him to Stop!

Via Billy

Apparently, that whole First Amendment, Freedom of Religion thing is kind of passé for some people at the Red Cross down in Lafayette, Louisiana. I mean, how else could you explain their decision to condemn a police officer for having the audacity to pray with flood victims in need of help?

This past week police officer Clay Higgins stopped by the local Red Cross shelter after work to see how he could be of service to the hurting people of his community. Higgins was still in uniform and carrying a Bible as he spoke and prayed with local residents. After a few minutes on scene he was approached by a Red Cross volunteer who told him that the Red Cross had taken issue with what he was doing and wanted him to leave.

“He said the Red Cross had an issue with me being there. So I asked him what the problem was. He looked down at my Bible and he gestured and said, ‘They have a problem with that.’”

Higgins then asked to see a supervisor, and that supervisor told him that he needed to leave their facility.

Trump By A Landslide?

Via Billy

If we believe the mainstream media and the Establishment it protects and promotes, Trump has no chance of winning the presidential election. For starters, Trump supporters are all Confederate-flag waving hillbillies, bigots, fascists and misogynists. In other words. "good people" can't possibly vote for Trump.

Even cartoon character Mike Doonesbury is fleeing to Vancouver to escape Trumpism. (Memo to the Doonesbury family: selling your Seattle home will barely net the down payment on a decent crib in Vancouver.)

For another, Trump alienates the entire planet every time he speaks.
The list goes on, of course, continuing with his lack of qualifications.

But suppose this election isn't about Trump or Hillary at all. Suppose, as political scientists Allan J. Lichtman and Ken DeCell claimed in their 1988 book, Thirteen Keys to the Presidency, that all presidential elections from 1860 to the present are referendums on the sitting president and his party.
If the public views the sitting president's second term favorably, the candidate from his party will win the election. If the public views the sitting president's second term unfavorably, the candidate from the other party will win the election.

17-year-old to be charged with bus assault on 5-year-old

Via Nancy

Parents of a 5 year-old girl are furious. They say security video, taken on a Bamberg school bus, shows her being hit. Now, the 17-year-old accused of hitting her has a warrant out for his arrest.

Jasmine's parents want to know why the high school student was allowed to ride the bus in the first place.

Terry Peters says he immediately noticed the mark on his little girl's face when he picked her up from after school care on Thursday. "I'm very upset! I'm mad," Peters said.

He says the daycare workers told him 17 year old Tavon Walters, a high school student, hit his daughter on the bus ride from the schools to the after school program. "He had reached over that seat and telling another girl if you don't hit her then I'm going to hit her for you," the father said.

Anthony Weiner Busted Sexting...Again

Via Billy

Anthony Weiner, disgraced former New York Congressman and NYC Mayoral candidate has been busted again sending explicit text messages to a "40-something divorcee" according to the New York Post. This is the third time Weiner, who is married to longtime Hillary Clinton aid Huma Abedin, has been caught up in a sexting scandal; the first incident forced his resignation from congress while the second scuttled his New York City mayoral bid.

Photos of disgraced congressman and his digital paramour were leaked to the press, and include cringe-inducing shots of a bare-chested Weiner, several shots of his crotch, and one particularly disturbing image in which Weiner's son appears in the background.

As I have done nearly everyday since I left the state of Florida, I would post the Colors of the Southern Cross. On this Sunday morning of August 28, 2016, I would post them in the picturesque town of Sylva, North Carolina, at the red light that heads east into downtown Sylva, and west towards Western Carolina College, for some two hours holding conversations with the many who stopped, and in so many instances posing for photos.

I would later make my way west for approximately 2 miles , and come to a stop at the entrance of War Mart where  my previous routine would began again. Three young women would stop and ask of me where I was heading next? When I related to them FLORIDA,  the next question was why?

I told them that during the first American Secession, Paul Revere road through the streets shouting, the British are coming. He was immortalized. Monuments were built of him, with the words inscribed, roads and schools bore his name. No matter that many Brit's still believe that this secession was illegal, and that America is still the property of the British Crown.

During America's second Secession,  a baby boy that bore the honorable Givens name, ran through the streets of Tampa,  Florida shouting, the Yankees are coming! He now lies in the cemetery in downtown Tampa, with a plaque bearing his name His actions enabling the citizens to repel the carnage that would surely have been carried out by the northern army with orders to do so. This time secession was legal, while the invasion was not.

No monuments were built, no schools or roads in young Givens name. Only the graves of the Southern soldier's who would hear his cry, alongside others who now lie nearby. Their resting places now being vandalized because of a Southern Governor who would perpetuate a lie. Their honorable vilified, their lives given,  now taxed to shame. The memory and accounting of the honor earned by their African family, who loyally served and supported the Confederate Cause in an humble and noble capacity now forced into oblivion by those who write the schoolhouse books.

And not to forget the print media who excuses the North and the then supposed civilized world, to include the African Kings who were all complicit in the economic institution of slavery,  and most of the evil associated with it.

I told these babies, and the crowd that now surrounded me to listen, that FLorida had now become the new cesspool of Southern social and cultural genocide, to include the eradication of the teachings in the Christian Bible, and all memory of Jesus Christ. I as a messenger had to tell the people of this unholy game that was being played out again. 

God bless you!

Is Earth being contacted by ALIENS? Mystery radio signals coming from a sun-like star baffle scientists

Via Billy

 Two SETI research groups will track HD 164595 tonight using the Allen Telescope Array (pictured) in northern California and the Boquete Optical SETI Observatory in Panama
Two SETI research groups will track HD 164595 tonight using the Allen Telescope Array (pictured) in northern California and the Boquete Optical SETI Observatory in Panama A spike in radio signals coming from the direction of a sun-like star has excited astronomers.

The signals seem to be originating from a sun-like star known as HD 164595 in the constellation Hercules, around 95 light years away.

Scientists suggest they are likely to be the result of a natural phenomenon, such as 'microlensing', in which the star's gravity strengthens and focus signals from elsewhere. 

But astronomers have also asked Seti (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) to take a closer look at whether they could be a message from ET.

Stephen Hawking Helps Launch Project 'Starshot' for Interstellar Space Exploration

 Stephen Hawking wants humanity to reach the stars. 
The famed cosmologist, along with a group of scientists and billionaire investor Yuri Milner, unveiled an ambitious new $100 million project today (April 12) called Breakthrough Starshot, which aims to build the prototype for a tiny, light-propelled robotic spacecraft that could visit the nearby star Alpha Centauri after a journey of just 20 years.

"The limit that confronts us now is the great void between us and the stars, but now we can transcend it," Hawking said today during a news conference here at One World Observatory. [Stephen Hawking: 'Transcending Our Limits' With Breakthrough Starshot (Video)]

Burns Chronicles No 26 Firearms Not Allowed

What happens when one law says that you can and the other law says that you can’t? Well, let’s enter the world of Perplexity and see what we can find.

To begin, we have to look at Count II of the Superseding Indictment. In the Indictment, it reads like this:

(Possession of Firearms and Dangerous Weapons in Federal Facilities)

(18 U.S.C. §§ 930(b) and 2)
On or about January 2, 2016, and continuing through February 12, 2016, in the District of Oregon, defendants [lists names of Defendants], and aided and abetted by each other and by others known and unknown to the grand jury, did knowingly possess or cause to be present a firearm or dangerous weapon in a federal facility located at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, and counseled, commanded, induced and procured the commission thereof, with the intent that the firearm or dangerous weapon be used in the commission of a crime, to wit: 18 U.S.C. § 372, Conspiracy to Impede Officers of the United States, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Sections 930(b) and 2.

So, let’s put that into English, in simple terms, “On or about January 2, 2016, and continuing through February 12, 2016 [The Defendants] did knowingly possess or cause to be present a firearm or dangerous weapon in a federal facility located at the Malheur National Wildlife Refugewith the intent that the firearm or dangerous weapon be used in the commission of a crime, to wit: 18 U.S.C. § 372.

The first cited statute, 18 US Code §930(b) reads:

(b) Whoever, with intent that a firearm or other dangerous weapon be used in the commission of a crime, knowingly possesses or causes to be present such firearm or dangerous weapon in a Federal facility, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.

Did those who occupied the Refuge “intend” to shoot anybody; use firearms to force people to leave their duties (18 US Code §372); or, have any other intent than to protect themselves?

Trump Versus Clinton: This Election is all About the Debates!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/article_750/usa-election.jpg

Conventional wisdom says Donald Trump is going to lose, and lose big.   
You see it everywhere in corporate media. Republican Party insiders are bereft and in denial, simultaneously refusing to accept the reality that their party is facing the possibility of catastrophic defeats in races all over the country this fall; indeed, some pundits say Trump marks the beginning of the end of the GOP. The New York Times is running a 24-7 odds placement that puts Hillary Clinton's chances of victory at 86 percent against his 14 percent.     

Indeed, if the election were held today, Hillary Clinton would beat Trump by a sizable margin. But that's not the case. Two months is a long time. Old scandals percolate; new ones emerge. Another terrorist attack could prompt voters to turn to the right

By far the biggest potential game changer, however, are the presidential debates. Conventional wisdom says Hillary Clinton will use her superior command of the facts and her ability to namedrop world leaders to run circles around Trump. But conventional wisdom is often wrong -- just ask unstoppable 2016 Republican presidential nominee Jeb Bush.      

I think Donald will trounce Hillary in the debates.      

In fact, I can't imagine any scenario in which she doesn't get destroyed.
