Meet Maine ‘s New Governor —  

(from an email I received anon.)

In case you haven’t heard about this guy before, his name will stick in your mind!

The new Maine Governor, Paul LePage is making New Jersey ‘s Chris Christie look timid. He isn’t afraid to say what he thinks. Judging by the comments, every time he opens his mouth, his popularity goes up.

He brought down the house at his inauguration when he shook his fist toward the media box and said, “You’re on notice! I’ve inherited a financially troubled State to run. Observe…cover what we do…but don’t whine if I don’t waste time responding to your every whim just for your amusement.”

During his campaign for Governor, he was talking to commercial fishermen who are struggling because of federal fisheries rules. They complained that 0bama brought his family to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park for a long Labor Day holiday and found time to meet with union leaders, but wouldn’t talk to the fishermen. LePage replied, “I’d tell him to go to hell and get out of my State.” The Lame Stream Media crucified LePage, but he jumped 6 points in the pre-election poll.

The Martin Luther King incident was a political sandbag, which brought him national exposure. The ‘lame stream’ media crucified him, but word on the street is very positive. The NAACP specifically asked LePage to spend MLK Day visiting black inmates at the Maine State Prison. He told them that he would meet with ALL inmates, regardless of race, if he were to visit the prison. The NAACP balked and then put out a news release claiming falsely that he refused to participate in any MLK events. He read it in the paper for the 1st time the next morning while being driven to an event and went ballistic because none of the reporters had called him for comment before running the NAACP release.

He arrived at that event & said in front of a TV camera, “If they want to play the race card on me they can kiss my ass”, and he reminded them that he has an adopted black son from Jamaica and that he attended the local MLK Breakfast every year that he was mayor of Waterville. (He started his morning there on MLK Day.)

He then stated that there’s a right way and a wrong way to meet with the Governor, and he put all special interests on notice that press releases, media leaks, and all demonstrations would prove to be the wrong way. He said any other group, which acted like the NAACP could expect to be at the bottom of the Governor’s priority list!

He then did the following, and judging from local radio talk show callers, his popularity increased even more: The State employees union complained because he waited until 3 P.M. before closing State offices and facilities and sending non-emergency personnel home during the last blizzard. The prior Governor would often close offices for the day with just a forecast before the first flakes. (Each time the State closes for snow, it costs the taxpayers about $1 million in wages for no work in return.)

LePage was CEO of the Marden’s chain of discount family bargain retail stores before election as governor. He noted that State employees getting off work early could still find lots of retail stores open to shop. So, he put the State employees on notice by announcing: “If Marden’s is open, Maine is open!”

He told State employees: “We live in Maine in the winter, for heaven’s sake, and should know how to drive in it. Otherwise, apply for a State job in Florida !”

Governor LePage symbolizes what America needs; Refreshing politicians who aren’t self-serving and who exhibit common sense.

THE LAW IS THE LAW!

I really love this one.

This is one of the better e-mails I have received in a long time! I hope this makes its way around the USA several times over!!!!! HERE IS WHAT Governor LaPage said,

“THE LAW IS THE LAW So “if” the US government determines that it is against the law for the words “under God” to be on our money, then, so be it.

And “if” that same government decides that the “Ten Commandments” are not to be used in or on a government installation, then, so be it.

I say, “so be it,” because I would like to be a law abiding US citizen

I say, “so be it,” because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions.

I would like to think that those people have the American public’s best interests at heart.

BUT, he said, “YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I’D LIKE?

Since we can’t pray to God, can’t Trust in God and cannot post His Commandments in Government buildings, I don’t believe Government (Federal, State and Local) and its employees should participate in Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our government is eliminating from many facets of American life.

I’d like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter. After all, it’s just another day.

I’d like the” US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays.” After all, it’s just another day.

I’d like the Senate and the House of Representatives to not have to worry about getting home for the “Christmas Break.” After all it’s just another day.

I’m thinking a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter. It shouldn’t cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be “politically correct.”

In fact….I think our government should work on Sundays (AFTER ALL, It was initially set aside for worshipping God) because, AFTER ALL, our government says that it should be Just ANOTHER DAY….”

What do you all think???? If this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop giving in to the “minority opinions” and begin, once again, to represent the “majority” of ALL of the American people.

SO BE IT….Please Dear Lord, Give us the help needed to keep you in our country! ‘Amen’ and ‘Amen’!

If this gets around the country a few times, I believe we all will see a better day!

Views of Jerusalem – Morning to Nightfall

sparks some thinking… good pictures

Jerusalem is a port city on the shore of eternity -Yehuda Amichai, Israeli poet
ירושלים היא עיר נמל על חופו של נצח יהודה עמיחי, משורר ישראלי

This week’s post is all Jerusalem, as seen from various vantage points around the city, from morning to nightfall.
ההודעה של השבוע היא כל ירושלים, כפי שנראה מנקודות תצפית שונות ברחבי העיר, מהבוקר ועד רדת החשכה.

“…the earthly Jerusalem will one day fade away into the Heavenly Jerusalem.”

“… ירושלים של מטה תהיה יום אחד נמוגות לתוך ירושלים של מעלה”.

The Psalmist gave us these words, “Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.”

התהילים נתנו לנו את המילים האלה: “התפללו לשלום בירושלים. מי ייתן וכל מי שאוהב את העיר הזאת ישגשגו”.

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand and Fourteen

In the Year of Our Lord, Two Thousand and Fourteen

By:  R.S. Helms

 in the year of

Now that the bell has rung out the old year, and brought us a new year what exactly does that mean?  Using a psychology expression, “when a person continues to do the same old things expecting a different outcome; is the definition of crazy!”  To many, that makes a lot of sense, unless you are crazy of course.  The optimist will say, thank God, the year has ended, we get a fresh start, and we have fifty-two weeks of hope and promise; okay, how has that worked out for us since 2009?  Actually, I love to be an optimist, although my writing over the past five years has reflected a pessimistic, angry, old codger and has won me nothing but bad names.

Nonetheless, I keep writing about the injustice that this administration has perpetrated against the freedoms and rights of the people of our great nation.  Keep in mind that most all of the past administrations have had their effect as well, but put them all together, and they would not; reach the level of abuse that this administration has inflicted. 

For myself, and many other citizen journalists, and the infamous “bloggers” and social media writers of the conservative perspective, we will not forget the issues that need resolved, even in the face of political correctness.

Closure needed for all the families, including Mexican Nationals and the people of the USA

Some of the issues are not going to be kicked down the road like an old horse biscuit and eventually forgotten.  Just taking them by the oldest first, “fast and furiest” and the murder of Bryan Terry, plus others along with untold numbers of innocent Mexican nationals just trying to survive the insane evil conditions in their own country.  The latest incident was just before Christmas, the Cartel and Mexican police engaged in a fight, and in the aftermath five dead several wounded and guess what was left at the scene?, right, a weapon from the fast and furiest gunrunning scheme.  What is needed is for Eric Holder and Obama to be held criminally accountable for the criminal act.

Next, we should visit a popular story even today, and as Hillary gears up, it will get more attention; that would be the Benghazi attack and the killing of four Americans, murder if you prefer.  Unlike the New York Times, most Americans do not think it was brought about by a video, and the terrible liberal disregard for personal journalism ethics will not change the facts.  Here again, what is needed is for Hillary Clinton and Obama to be held criminally accountable for the criminal act of gunrunning to Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood partners in the Middle East.

More than a gun-running cover-up
More than a gun-running cover-up

We will learn more on Seal Team Six set-up as that investigation has been adopted by congress.  However, it does sound like someone has finally paid attention to the allegations and may start looking into the matter.

There should be an investigation into several congressional members as to complicity in several issues concerning the conduct of the Executive Branch’s unconstitutional power plays using the regulatory agencies and cabinet for wrongdoing, with other serious scandals.

John McCain, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, all 30 – something Czars, Homeland Security, IRS, EPA, NSA, CIA, FBI, NASA, FEMA, TSA, The State Department, Department of Labor, Secretary of the Treasury, Department of Education, Department of Defense.  This is a partial list of individuals, departments, and agencies that are obvious in their collusion in illegal or/and unconstitutional and criminal activities of the Obama administration.

 

Okay, I am optimistic about this year offering the opportunity for conservatives to begin cleaning up the mess, and repairing our government.  I am optimistic that Americans will get up from their stupor of complacency and actually hold the Democrats and Republicans accountable for their oath of office.  Get rid of

Be careful with your vote, most will not listen after they get this far.

the whole lot who are progressive or politics as usual bureaucrat chums in the beltway club. 

From the alarmist in me, and for some time I have expounded on civil disorder and federal martial law.  Obama promised in 2008 that he would build a “civilian army better equipped and better trained than our military, he meant just that, and it is proving to be a promise kept.  The first thing out of his mouth in the New Year is, “I will spend the rest of my time in office on equality issues.  Watch him close; he is a liar, bully, Marxist, Muslim, illegal alien who will stop at nothing to gain total power over the American people.  What he is saying here is simply, “I will cause the blacks, whites, and Muslims to get so upset, that I will create a manufactured civil unrest crisis, and put the nation under martial law, then elections will be postponed and eliminated, and the president will have total power.  On the other hand, it may not be about his power, but his party’s approval rate at a critical mid-term election, where ObamaCare has nearly guaranteed their not being re-elected and losing congressional seats.  However, hat would not hurt the agenda of the administration; there are too many Rino politicians who will go along with Obama to keep their job, and status in the beltway boyz and girlz club. 

The conspiracy theorist nametag that was put on anyone who even thought about putting one plus one equals two was ridiculed so bad that it became embarrassing; even for those doing the bulling.  No one ever mentioned anything, which could be remotely deemed as conspiracy.  It became such a joke that conspiracy was a comedy routine.  Nonetheless, when issues line up, and the dots are connected it is as plain as the nose on your face, if you have one that is not pushed so far up this liberal Marxist ideology.   

Marxist ideologies are not compatible with the Constitution and Liberty
Marxist ideologies are not compatible with the Constitution and Liberty

The president will attempt to change the rhetoric from Obama care, and the lie, to put in the class warfare, adding the class card, to the race card.  This is simply dividing the race and classes even more, calling names and demonizing Republicans, who thought that going against constitutional conservatives in the Republican Party, would save the Rinos from the wrath of the liberal name-calling.  In fact, it has only showed them as spineless progressives, who are dividing their party.

Nevertheless, we will start out the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand and Fourteen, with more of the same politics with emphasis on anything but ObamaCare, it has started in congress and the press because Obama has decreed it to be.  We are in for a fantastic show of politics, with lies, name calling, leveraging of voting blocs, and more division and lose of liberty. 

Get your popcorn, with plenty of butter, a over-sized drink because this will be a show you have no choice about, but the content of the production promises to amaze even the most open minded liberal.  It has a cast of millions, as all the special interest groups weigh in with a perspective of their own.

This should be an entertaining year
This should be an entertaining year

 

All for what?  The outcome will be either good for our nation or just bring us closer to a socialist nation.  So enjoy it however, you want to that may not be a freedom you have after the next one.  The reason I say this is that if Obama is not stopped now, Hillary will pick it up and run it in for the winning score. 

Enjoy your popcorn.  Educate yourself, become informed of the truth, get some backbone and go vote for our constitution, our liberty, our nation.
