Jolly turning St. Pete sewage crisis to state law enforcement authorities

Good! “Minutes after Mayor Kriseman finished telling CIty Council members that his administration would devote more attention, manpower and time to the city’s sewage crisis, Jolly announced that, after talking with whistleblower plant operator Askew and reviewing the facts of the case, he’s turning it over to state law enforcement ..Here is Jolly’s statement: “Following extensive conversations with Askew regarding the recent wastewater discharge .. this has now become a matter that reaches beyond the jurisdiction of my office and merits a review by law enforcement. I have spoken with state law enforcement officials who have direct investment responsibility over environmental matters and they have concurred that the allegations rise to the level of a formal investigation.. ”


Don’t be fooled by utility-backed solar amendment

“Floridians for Solar Choice started a citizens’ initiative to deregulate the solar market to allow 3rd-party power providers to sell rooftop solar-gen power to neighbors. FL’s 4 largest electric companies launched a counter offensive. They crafted their own amendment to compete with the pro-solar effort. Their goal was to confuse voters with competing amendments. As it turned out, they had the resources to get their amendment on the Nov ballot through paid petition gatherers. The real pro-solar effort fell short of getting on the ballot this year.The utility-backed initiative will appear on the Nov ballot as Amendment One. Instead of promoting choice, it limits it. Instead of allowing competition, it suppresses it. Instead of helping small businesses, it requires more regulation.Don’t be fooled by their clever ploy. Vote NO on Amendment 1.”

Fish kills stain South Pinellas beaches

Ugh!!”But once people stepped out toward the ocean, away from the hotel, the odor of dead fish baking in the late-morning sun was undeniable.Thousands of specimens dotted the entire coastline along St. Pete Beach, a stretch of sand and hotels most associated with ranking year in and year out as the one of the best destinations in the country..People swam in water where the occasional dead fish floated by on the surface. Taking a stroll along the shoreline involved tiptoeing around dead marine life. …Their bad timing is likely due to Red Tide, said a spokesperson for the Fl Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. It has already been confirmed off Manatee County. No Red Tide declaration has been made for Pinellas Co yet, even though half of the municipalities along the Gulf Blvd corridor have reported fish kills.”

Obama’s Colossal Email Lie Final Test for Tarnished MSM

“Obama communicated in 2012-under a pseudonym-with Hillary on the home-brew email server and then claimed he did not know of that server’s existence until reported in the press in 2014 is far more than the usual politician’s prevarication.Since the fish rots from the top, the surfacing of this particular lie calls to question the entire FBI inquiry into the Clinton server.. we do know that one of Clinton’s own IT workers referred to her 60-day email retention policy as “Hillary’s coverup operation..The seriousness of this- involving national security -makes Watergate seem minor. If the media does not investigate, they are the enablers of the decline of Western civilization. Without a free and honest press- not to mention adherence to the rule of law, such a civilization cannot survive.”

La. AG: Administration Coerced ‘Local Jurisdictions in My State to Institute Sanctuary Policies’ for Illegal Aliens

Unbelievable!! Look at the crime rate increases in Sanctuary cities!”Landry (Attorney General for Louisiana) wrote that he is “pushing for change because the Obama admin has not only decided to not enforce the law, but they have also used their power to coerce local jurisdictions in my state to institute sanctuary policies.”Landry noted that crime is up in cities with sanctuary policies. For instance, in Los Angeles, crime rose in 2015. Violent crime was up 19.9%. Homicides were up 10.2%. Shooting victims rose 12.6%. Rapes were up 8.6%. Robberies were up 12.3%, and aggravated assault was up 27.5%, he wrote in his opening testimony. Furthermore “Immigration and Customs Enforcement recently revealed that 1,867 illegals released by sanctuary cities were later arrested 4,298 times with 7,491 new crimes – including rape and child sex abuse.”

Hundreds of Noncitizens on Voting Rolls in Swing State of Virginia

No wonder VA went Democratic-Looks like Voter Fraud! “The 2012 presidential race in Virginia was decided by just 3% points, as was the next year’s race for governor. In both 2005 and 2013, fewer than 1,000 votes decided contests for Virginia Attorney General. Against this backdrop, watchdog groups have pushed local election officials in 7 VA jurisdictions to reveal hundreds of noncitizens who are registered to vote. So far, they have found more than 550.Every ineligible voter on the rolls could end up being an eligible vote that cancels out the vote of other, eligible voters,” @PILFoundation says.Potentially more could be found on the voters rolls, as the Public Interest Legal Foundation pursues a total of 20 counties and cities in the Old Dominion—a sampling of its 95 counties and 38 independent cities.”

Lester Holt shows he doesn’t know the meaning of impartial

“The referee not only made himself part of the game on Mon night, he ran up to the scrimmage line, then sacked the quarterback 3 times..For the most part, Holt asked the kinds of basic questions that gave Hillary and Trump plenty of opportunities to repeat favored talking points: what would you do to pump some life into the job market? How would you heal the race divide? Are police biased against minorities? ..But in the last half of the show, Holt started going after Trump. He got into an unfortunate bickering match over the latter’s (apparently offhand) support for the Iraq War in a 2002 Howard Stern interview. It was perfectly reasonable to bring up the point, but the exchange became tiresome on both sides, with the two men talking past each other. Arguing with Trump is Clinton’s job, not Holt’s.”

Senator Slams Obama Admin’s New Report That Compares Religious Freedom to Slavery

Must Read! “Last week, the Commission on Civil Rights released a report entitled “Peaceful Coexistence: Reconciling Nondiscrimatory Principles with Civil Liberties.” It analyzed the balance struck by federal courts in considering claims for religious exemptions from nondiscrimination laws. Yet, many freedom-loving Americans were none too pleased to find that the document claims the term “religious liberty” is sometimes code for discrimination..The commission argues that religious freedom is being used as a “weapon” just like in the days of slavery and Jim Crow. Religious liberty, the report reads, is being used to “undermine” the rights of minorities.The report singles out the Religious Freedom Res Act, which is currently in 22 states. The commission insists states change the law so it does not “unduly burden” nondiscrimination laws.”

Colorado voter fraud revealed: Slew of ballots cast by the dead spark investigation

“..evidence of voter fraud in CO has sparked an immediate invest by Sec of State Williams. Election sleuthing by Brian Maass of KCNC-TV exposed multiple instances where dead Coloradans were still voting. A dead World War II vet named John Grosso voted in a 2006 primary election, and a woman named Sara Sosa who died in 2009 cast ballots in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Mrs. Sosa’s husband Miguel died in 2008, but a vote was cast in his name one year later.“This is the kind of thing you hear rumored, joked about in Chicago” Maass said . “Tonight, that changes. We did find voter fraud in CO that essentially waters down your vote.”At one point Mr. Maass‘ investigation led him to the CO Springs home the daughter of Mrs. Sosa. The reporter received the cold shoulder when he asked the homeowner about her mother’s “voting” record.”

Hillary Should Be 50 Points Behind

In a bizarre video message to the Laborers International Union, Hillary asked, “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?”..Clinton claimed that Trump was staunchly opposed to labor unions, but she had a long history of support. According to Clinton, “Right to Work is wrong for workers and wrong for America.”In fact, Right to Work is only wrong for labor bosses and liberal Democrats like Hillary who depend on their donations. Right to Work laws have now been enacted in 26 states. In essence, these laws give workers the choice of whether to join a labor union or not with the decision having no impact on their employment status or their opportunity to be hired. Right to Work laws give employees more freedom and limits the power of the union bosses, which is what upsets Hillary and her fellow liberals so much.”

Every Immigrant Without High School Degree Costs US $640,000

How to bankrupt America!!”Low-skill immigrants are shown to impose substantial fiscal costs.. The future government benefits they will receive greatly exceed the taxes they will pay.On average, a adult immigrant without a high school diploma will create a net fiscal cost in both the current generation and second generation. The average net present value of the fiscal cost of such an immigrant is estimated at $231,000, a cost that must be paid by taxpayers. Slightly more than 4 million adult immigrants without a high school diploma have entered the U.S. since 2000…To cover the future cost, each taxpaying household would have to pay an immediate lump sum of over $10,000. Costs would go up in the future as more than 200,000 additional adult immigrants without a high school diploma arrive in the country each year.”

SEND ‘EM BACK: DOJ Sends Same Unit to Charlotte That Helped Ferguson, Baltimore Rioters Organize

Unbelievable!! The Department of Justice (DOJ) encouraging riots? “In moments of social unrest featuring violence and crime, one would expect the only proper role of the taxpayer-funded federal government is to quash the disturbance.However, a unit of progressive attorneys within the DOJ has been at the center of every significant riot during the Obama administration, and this unit — the Community Relations Service, or CRS — was not at those scenes to protect the safety of all citizens. In fact, the CRS was caught encouraging the chaos. Not only did CRS side only with the protesters and not with law enforcement, they actively facilitated the protests, even as they were turning violent. Additionally, this same unit has a serious fraud and corruption problem. CRS came under fire this year for internally generated charges of incompetence, out-of-control management, and abuse of taxpayer funds.”

Up to 15% of Noncitizens in US Are Voting, Alleges Expert

Stolen elections!! “The Obama admin opposes states verifying citizenship status of registered voters. Inquiries into voter fraud are typically met with derision from both government and the media.. Prosecutors don’t prioritize voter fraud, while convictions only garner light sentences.These are among the voter fraud problems facing the US experts noted this week…A 2014 study by Old Dominion found that 6.4% of all noncitizens voted in the 2008 election and 2.2% voted in the 2010 midterm elections. The study concludes this likely put MN Sen. Franken over the top in the race in his 312-vote statewide victory over Republican Norm Coleman in 2008.“The left generally, which is behind this, wants to be able to steal elections if necessary, says @TomFitton.Fitton said this is approaching 15% of all noncitizens voting.”

‘Surprise That Will End Trump’: Globalists Registering 8 Million ‘Global Citizens’ To Vote Hillary

Very Concerning!! “Soros planning on reaching 8 million overseas US citizens to vote in upcoming elections! A new campaign, touted as the “Oct surprise that will end Trump”, is seeking to mobilize a “secret swing state” of more than 8 million mostly unregistered “global citizens” and “progressive” Americans living abroad to vote in the US election.The initiative was launched in London in the UK on Wed by ‘Avaaz’, a registered U.S. charity and one the world’s largest and most powerful activist groups linked to Soros… While illegal for registered U.S. charities to work with or for presidential candidates , a spokeswoman for Avaaz denied any connection to the Hillary campaign when quizzed. Campaigners with Avaaz however, were recorded shouting, “Vote for Hillary!”

Officials quiz St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman about sewage spills

And the Major did not know?”Pinellas County’s legislative delegation quizzed local officials Tuesday about the region’s growing sewer crisis.Much of the two-hour meeting centered around a study that St. Pete Mayor Kriseman and his top aides say they did not learn about until last week. The city-ordered study warned how closing the Albert Whitted treatment plant could leave the city vulnerable to sewage spills.But the Fl Dept of Environmental Protection knew about the study last year from another document, said DEP Southwest District director Yeargan, who also attended the meeting.”We read the report in the fall last year after Albert Whitted closed,” Yeargan said, adding that the agency requested the study from the city a year ago.”
