Michigan’s State Police Leader Fined Five Days Pay For Calling NFL Players Who Take The Knee ‘Anti-American Degenerates’

I guess the millionaire America hating ingrates have free speech rights but Michigan State Police Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue does not. 

Start fining the NFL players and the kneeling will stop. Update to this story.

Via Daily Mail:

A top Michigan police woman will lose five days of pay for sharing a Facebook post in September that called NFL players who kneel during the national anthem ‘anti-American degenerates.’

Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue has been under fire since September 24 when she shared a meme on her personal Facebook page that called NFL players who kneel during the national anthem ‘millionaire ingrates who hate America.’

She has apologized, especially to black lawmakers, but hasn’t publicly explained why she shared it.

Governor Rick Snyder confirmed the penalty Thursday at the end of press release that announced many steps to ‘review the culture of state government.’

Hundreds of athletes have expressed they are taking a knee during the pre-game national anthem as a symbolic protest against racial oppression and incidents of police brutality against blacks.

The controversial message on her personal Facebook page caused outrage, as some have called for her to be fired – which Snyder had already said he would not do.

The full message reads: ‘Dear NFL: we do not support millionaire ingrates who hate America and disrespect our Armed Forces and Veterans.

‘Who wins a football game has ZERO impact on our lives. Who fights for and defends our nation has EVERY impact on our lives.

‘We stand with the Heroes, not a bunch of rich, entitled, arrogant, ungrateful, anti-American degenerates. Signed, We the People.’

Obama Trying To Hide The Extent of His Imperial Presidency Using Presidential Memorandums, Carry Same Weight As Executive Orders…

Leave a comment

I dare you to tell me Obama does not think he is the Emperor of America or maybe the Ayllatollah of America. 

 

fTwfaNM

As of today the Imperial President has issued 195 executive orders and 198 presidential memorandums.

Via USA Today:

President Obama has issued a form of executive action known as the presidential memorandum more often than any other president in history — using it to take unilateral action even as he has signed fewer executive orders.

When these two forms of directives are taken together, Obama is on track to take more high-level executive actions than any president since Harry Truman battled the “Do Nothing Congress” almost seven decades ago, according to a USA TODAY review of presidential documents.

Obama has issued executive orders to give federal employees the day after Christmas off, to impose economic sanctions and to determine how national secrets are classified. He’s used presidential memoranda to make policy on gun control, immigration and labor regulations. Tuesday, he used a memorandum to declare Bristol Bay, Alaska, off-limits to oil and gas exploration.

Like executive orders, presidential memoranda don’t require action by Congress. They have the same force of law as executive orders and often have consequences just as far-reaching. And some of the most significant actions of the Obama presidency have come not by executive order but by presidential memoranda.

Obama has made prolific use of memoranda despite his own claims that he’s used his executive power less than other presidents. “The truth is, even with all the actions I’ve taken this year, I’m issuing executive orders at the lowest rate in more than 100 years,” Obama said in a speech in Austin last July. “So it’s not clear how it is that Republicans didn’t seem to mind when President Bush took more executive actions than I did.”

Obama has issued 195 executive orders as of Tuesday. Published alongside them in the Federal Register are 198 presidential memoranda — all of which carry the same legal force as executive orders.

Pelosi Asks Dems To “Stand With Her And Fight Against The Tea Party”…

San Fran Nan has some serious brain damage.

I think most Democrats want to steer clear of Pelosi,Reed etc.

 

 

If it wasn’t for Nancy Pelosi this country would have been overrun by Tea Party terrorists a long time ago.

Dear Drew,

This was a tough November, there’s no doubt about it. The Tea Party has even more allies in Congress.

But we cannot be defeated. It is more important now — maybe more important than it’s ever been — that we stand with Nancy in the fight for middle class families.

Will you sign on to stand with Nancy and fight against the Tea Party?

The Tea Party is almost certain to ram through the Ryan Plan to end Medicare as we know it. They could try to privatize Social Security or restrict women’s access to health care.

Everything we’ve fought so long to achieve is still on the line.

Nancy will not sit by and watch the Tea Party chip away at America’s middle class. She is running to be the Democratic Leader in the 114th Congress so she can continue to fight for our families and our future.

She needs each and every one of us with her.

Stand with Nancy in support of middle class families and values. Sign on today.

Thank you.

Team Pelosi

It is a shame the lid did not come off his latte had covered him.

Lousy Disrespectful Bastard.

Unreal.

Obama has been in office since January of 2009 and he still can’t salute properly?

It would have been better if Obama would have just done nothing.

Obama’s disdain for the military has no ends.

Daily Beast Lib Wants Companies To Sign “Loyalty Oaths” Pledging Allegiance To Obama’s “Economic Patriotism”…

Leave a comment

Shades of 1939 Nazi Germany.

Obama and the DemocRats are responsible for the draconian tax laws that are forcing industry to flee America.

 

Well, that’s, ummm, kinda creepy.

The United States Needs Corporate ‘Loyalty Oaths’ – Daily Beast

On top of all the wars and global messiness, 2014 will be remembered for the plague of “corporate inversion,” which the news media should start routinely calling “corporate desertion.” So far, 47 American-based companies have renounced U.S. citizenship and bought foreign subsidiaries in order to dodge American taxes. Many more are preparing to flee. […]

Because oaths and pledges are a little creepy, this effort needs something else—something that comes out of the legal and business worlds: a contract. More specifically, an NDA.

Non-disclosure agreements are common in corporate America, where tens of thousands of senior managers and employees sign contracts promising to keep all sorts of information confidential. It’s often a condition of employment.

Now it’s time to change the “D” and expect the same from boards of directors—a “non-desertion agreement” with the John Hancock of every board member and CEO in the United States.

If boards thought for even a second about the long-term interests of their companies, they would summon their lawyers and sign. It’s protection against the risks of resurgent nationalism that could strip them of the many advantages (indirect government subsidies, easy access to American markets) that they currently enjoy.

Companies that fail to sign non-desertion agreements would face the kind of public shaming that has gone out of fashion but could come back with a vengeance: boycotts, petitions, angry shareholder meetings full of the language of patriotism.

Wife Outraged After Unconscious Vet Was Pronounced Dead At VA Hospital

Will the giant clusterf**k known as the VA Health care facilities by able to be fixed?

 

 

Do not give the VA a DNR order.

Via Daily Mail

A woman in Kentucky is demanding answers from a local VA hospital after she claims her husband was erroneously pronounced dead.

According to Jennifer Dunn, doctors at the Lexington VA Hospital assured her last week that her husband, Danny Dunn, was no longer among the living.

The wife was given her husband’s time of death, but when she went into his room to bid a final farewell, she found Mr Dunn with a strong heart rate and blood pressure.

It all started last Thursday morning when 46-year-old Danny Dunn, an U.S. Army veteran, was discovered unconscious by his wife in their Central Kentucky home.

The former soldier was rushed to a hospital in Harrodsburg and was later airlifted to the VA Hospital in Lexington, where medical personnel pronounced him dead.

‘I said, “Are ya’ll sure he’s gone?” and they said, “There’s no pulse, ma’am, he’s gone,”‘ Jennifer Dunn told LEX18.

In accordance with her husband’s end-of-life wishes, Mrs Dunn made the decision to take him off life support, but she quickly discovered that Danny still had vital signs.
Utter shock: Jennifer Dunn was given her husband’s time of death and went into his room to take him off life support, in accordance with his end-of-life wishes, when she discovered that he still had vital signs

As of Monday, the 46-year-old veteran was very much alive, and according to his wife, apparently growing stronger.

‘He squeezed my hand when I asked him to,’ she said. ‘He opened his eyes when I asked him to. And he grabbed my hand.’

The Dunn family now want the ailing husband and father transferred to another hospital for treatment.

The VA facility in Lexington released a general statement to the local TV station, which read in part: ‘Veterans can have confidence that our staff of dedicated and professional providers is committed to working with them and their families to honor their wishes and support their needs.’

But the Dunns are far from satisfied with the hospital’s response to the near-fatal blunder.

‘They said his soul was gone and that he wasn’t living no more,’ said Dunn’s son, Tyler. ‘That he was gone long before we got him there… I mean we’re just looking for answers and they won’t give us any.’

Missouri Dem Gov. Jay Nixon Vetoes Bill Requiring Background Checks For Obamacare Navigators

Democrat Jay Nixon says screw you to the people of Missouri one more time.

The agenda of Emperor Obama must be advanced to destroy our health care system and America.

 

Because background checks would disproportionally hurt Obama’s base.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed legislation Monday that would have limited who could work in the state as a health insurance guide and blamed a national conservative group for injecting an error into the model legislation.

The vetoed bill would have required criminal background checks for people applying for state licenses as enrollment aides for a federally run health insurance website. Anyone with past convictions involving fraud or dishonesty would have been barred from the jobs.

Missouri is one of more than a dozen Republican-controlled state legislatures that have passed measures tightening requirements for the workers known as navigators or counselors under President Barack Obama’s health care law. While the federal government does not require criminal background checks for navigators, states can set their own rules.

The vetoed Missouri measure mirrored model legislation produced by the American Legislative Exchange Council, an organization of conservative lawmakers and businesses that has opposed Obama’s health care law.

Isn’t liberal tolerance and understanding wonderful?

Trey Gowdy

How progressive.

Gowdy was tapped on Monday to lead a new select committee on Benghazi. His office referred all questions to the Capitol Police.

Training Begins In Texas School Marshal Program

More states need to follow Texas’ lead with similar training programs.

 

 

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe which teacher is armed

Via KTBC

The trainers from the new school marshal program began their first day of training in San Marcos on Monday. The program will allow a designated school official to carry a gun on campus.

19 participants are taking part in the class at the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center in San Marcos. They will learn the curriculum of the program then take it back to their communities and train the school staff members who want to participate.

The program was created through the passage of House Bill 1099 in the last legislative session. It allows staff members to act as marshals in armed shooter and other emergency situations when police are still minutes away.

All prospective marshals must pass a mental health evaluation, attend active shooter and emergency situation training, and take ten times the amount of firearms training required for CHL holders.

North Carolina is the only other state to pass this legislation. It has yet to be implemented.

More Common Core Indoctrination: “The People Must Obey The Government’s Commands”

American parents Wake Up this is where your children are headed.

Get Common  Core defeated now .

 

 

Wow, indoctrination tied up as instruction on possessives. This is reportedly part of the Common Core lessons for third graders so it applies to all schools employing those standards.

This is courtesy of Chris Sardegna. In case you question the above, Chris even provides the answer key and a teacher’s power point.

So third graders are learning:
it is the President’s job to make everything fair
the people must obey the commands of government officials
the individual’s wants are less important than the nation’s well-being.

Let’s try a new lesson on the use of the possessive.

Common Core’s instruction on possessives is atrocious indoctrination and Common Core’s “standards” should be investigated and tossed.

There, now we did our homework for the day…
