Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Who said the good-old-boy establishment didn’t exist in the LCRC? I wouldn’t have voted for half of the candidates last election (if I was able to vote for all) because they didn’t fill the bill for ethical candidates serving the people. Seems that some are trying to booger the Sheriff’s race also.

I am hearing from others about me becoming a delegate again. I won’t be here so I can’t, but the people asking are looking to knock Chapman out of office Here is one article to read. I normally don’t like Feds working in local venues or the other way around. It is an apples-to-oranges scenario. The choice I had last election was determined by ethics and I voted for Chapman because I believed him to be the best person for the job for ALL county citizens. I had my doubts. I read and hear things that Chapman is liberal. I haven’t seen a liberal or conservative ideology in his performance of the job. I’ve seen where ABSOLUTELY NO DEPUTIES like him or want to work for him. Really? Let’s have a show of hands from the deputies, otherwise it is only foolhearty hearsay. I read he doesn’t know how to budget and blew his budget one year. Sup. Buona, who castigated Chapman, should look at his own dealings with ripping off Loudoun citizens. Being inept and ignorant is not a crime. I didn’t expect Chapman to be a perfect manager right off the bat. He did what he should have and relied on others to help him in certain areas. Some of those others failed him and he took the hit. You can fix ineptness and ignorance. I have talked with Mike on several occasions. He is a likable guy.

Ok, so let’s look at his opponent, Eric Noble. I never met the guy but he seems to have had a great service record with the LCSO. Valors, awards, promotions. Ricky Frye likes him and I like Ricky. Then I came across something disturbing, which you can read here. I was told about this site but when I did an internet review of Noble, it appeared right along with Noble. When you read it, you will get the impression that Noble and his friends are very childish in behavior. Someone that doesn’t take their job or themselves very serious. What got serious was, to me, a tendency of dereliction of duty. The other articles said he retired. This article says he was terminated with prejudice. Hello? And if you have or have had a security clearance, you know not to do anything to ever jeopardize it. These are lasting things that stay with you forever. Why did Noble say he retired? Why the multiple monikers to blog sites to disgrace your boss? Childish behavior or just dangerous antics? You decide. The only thing I want to do is ask Sheriff Mike if it is true about Noble’s termination (just to reassure myself).

You look at what is being said about Chapman and Noble and make your own decision. There is still time to become a delegate. Something that really raises my hackles is a statement from a member of LoCo govt, stating that if you lose the GOP primary, back the candidate and don’t run as an independent (this race in particular, is how it was addressed). Why is that necessary now and not before? Fishy. Stinky fishy. These type politics stink because there is a lack of or, better yet, an absence of ethics. This isn’t about the most likable person for the job but the most trustworthy. With what I read, I can’t give Noble my trust. And I wouldn’t vote for him and put a burden on the citizens. We don’t deserve that. We need better than this.

Look. If you don’t understand this poor, wayward youth, read this article by the NY Times. It even explains that they didn’t know how he got captured. His fellow soldiers knew. The 6 that died looking for him or trying to retrieve him knew. And I am sure the Obama administration knew for they had plans to use this traitor pawn.
So he gets charged for desertion, as well he should. He gets charged with misbehavior. Funny term because of think of kids cutting up in school or at home. Why not just use the term treason. With these charges, Bergdahl is free to roam and ski or shoot his guns while waiting to decide how to go forward. You can see I used the NY Times for both articles to keep it congruent. The article says that the defense department doesn’t want to see him incarcerated. He may not even get a dishonorable discharge, loss of rank or forfeiture of accrued pay while held “captive” ( which is a term I use very loosely and don’t believe). To refresh: he willfully left his post and sought out the enemy. Fellow soldiers died on his behalf. 5 deadly jihadis released in “trade” for poor Sgt. Traitor Bergdahl. And he has suffered enough? No death penalty? No consequences save having to live with some type of conscience where he may hold a smidgen of guilt? More Obama influence and justice maybe? I leave it to you to decide.

Well, well, well. Instead of someone else saying they were doing an “exploratory”, Cruz came right out and declared running for the presidency. Of course, he had the desired affect that I knew it would.
Here’s Gov. Jerry “moonbeam” Brown of California, stating that Cruz is “unfit” to be president. And this statement is because of Cruz’s disbelieve (no science) in the climate change issue. Brown is facing water shortages that he believes is due to climate change. Are smelts a part of climate? The northern part of the state, where there are more trees and less big cities and desert, is doing fine with water. Are trees and cities climate? Poor rabid “moonbeam”. Poor, wretched, boy!
And we all know that Boehner and other establishment Republicans don’t like the Tea Party because the GOP won’t be able to steal from the people like their progressive Dem counterparts. The almighty super-senator McCain called them “whacko birds”.
A conservative (you know, the ones like libertarians that believe in the Constitution) makes establishment Repubs go crazy and start talking stuff about “how we can’t win if we give in to the extreme right”. Extreme right? How about just the right compared to the wrong? What would happen if all the pseudo Repubs out there rallied behind their Tea Party brethren? You would have the old Republican Party back in full glory. Imagine that.

Oh, snap. Gov. Walker did the union unthinkable and signed into law right-to-work. The union is pissed and it just means less dues for them but, actually, more attractive work conditions for new business and others looking to relocate. Remember, unions brought you this: http://www.npr.org/2015/02/26/389177391/west-coast-ports-dispute-caused-collateral-damage-labor-secretary-says The Labor Sec. says it was all due to arbitration, or the supposed lack thereof. Unions do have cause and effect, and it doesn’t look like any really winners when that happens.

This seems to be what the BATFE is trying to push off upon those ignorant masses called American citizens. Townhall picked up on this and reported it here. (NOTE: The report date of 2014 is in error. The guidelines are for starting date of January 2015.) So is this an error or just another end around from the Obama administration? When are these people going to be held accountable? When will they be fired and permanently banned from working for or with the U.S. Government? When will they be IMPRISONED? I would ask when they would be executed but the government and the liberals don’t have the stomach for Capitol punishment because they may be caught in the web themselves. Imagine that. Anyway, with his new enlightenment to the general public, do you really think that the public comment period is going to have any impact on the already “conclusive” decision the ATF has made to ban this ammunition? Can you say “fat chance”.

Sorry. I wanted to get this out earlier but the transcript wasn’t available. I watched it live and was very excited through the whole speech. Unfortunately it wasn’t the leader of MY country making me feel good, but that of ANOTHER country. This speech was needed to be said and heard. READ THE WHOLE THING SO THAT YOU UNDERSTAND ITS IMPORTANCE.

There were many Congress critters absent, although you could not tell because this was a PACKED HOUSE! Even Feinstein was there after she said she wouldn’t be. Pelosi was there, annoyingly and continuously turning around to talk to others. Who was very conspicuously absent was Plugs Biden. Well, his schedule says he is doing this. Not sure what it is but it is consistent with this administration: when things are in crisis mode, there is always time to f#^koff and be political. Nature of the beast.

When you read this transcript, you will see things like “the enemy of my enemy is my enemy” and “Israel can stand up for itself”. He is giving Obama a chance to do the right thing but he is stating that the U.S. will not keep Israel from doing what is necessary for its protection. Bravo BiBi, bravo.

As I await the speech to AIPAC from Netanyahu, I hear from members of Congress who will snub him when he gives his speech to Congress tomorrow. Most of the Obama administration “heads” will be conveniently out of town. They’ve had enough notice to redo their schedules to be present , which means this is really just a snub. Here is one article on the issue.

Now when Amb. Samantha Power spoke, she said many things. She got some applause but then raised her eyebrows each time, like she had just hit a home run. I, personally, thought it a disgusting display, as my interpretation was that of “politics being played”. To strengthen that belief, she stated that Obama reiterated that Iran WILL NOT GET A NUCLEAR WEAPON. PERIOD. What does “will not get” mean? Won’t be able to buy one? Won’t be able to make one? Won’t be able to steal one? All ambiguous and subjective from my point of view. Above all, we have another “period” statement. That tells me a lie is being perpetrated and something underhanded is moving forward; based, of course, on past behavior from this administration.

When Netanyahu spoke, he only spoke as to why he would speak to Congress tomorrow. He believes that there is a strong relationship with the U.S. and Obama. He only wants to let our governing body know how Much Israel is in danger. But there are ads from Jstreet, supposedly objective and conservative Jews, who say this is a bad idea for both Israel and the U.S. I did some research into Jstreet. This article should sum it up pretty well. All in all, there seems to be great opposition towards this visit and speech from Netanyahu. I won’t ask why because I already know. Unfortunately, Israel, on this subject, also has our best interests in hand because our administration is willing to weaken the world and put everyone in jeopardy by allowing a nuclear terrorist state. People who have openly declared destruction of their perceived enemies, of which we are one.

And then you have John Kerry, chief lackey for all affairs foreign, trying to assemble some type of coherent speak on the issue. When he stated that “Israel is safer” because of the interim agreement with Iran. After all these Obama years of indoctrination, this should be easily believed by the masses, no? Trying to remember what that interim agreement was. Something like we will lift sanctions and Iran will stop buying and using centrifuges while allowing inspectors to see every aspect of their nuclear program. How is that working out?
