Duke Blue Devil’s Basketball Coach Mike Krzyzewski Humilates Obama for Being a Coward President

By -
It’s not everyday you wake up to a story where one of the most successful men in all of sporting history decides he’s going to slam the President for being a major coward.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski has led the Duke Blue Devils to 5 NCAA championships. He’s also represented the stars and stripes internationally when he served as the U.S. Basketball team Olympic coach. That, and he’s the first coach in NCAA Division 1-A history to net 1,000 wins.

To say he knows what it takes to lead would be an understatement.



At the last Town Council meeting/workshop, history was made by the Town Council.  This was an epic evening for residents. 

The Town Council put all differences aside and did what is best for the community.  This was accomplished by instructing Mrs. Barnes to reduce the Police Department and the Public Works budgets by $100,000.00 each.  This is a great move because the Police budget is close to two million dollars and the Public Works budget is over two million tax dollars. 

This action by the Town Council is epic because for as long as I have been in local politics; the Police Department has never been cut.  Instead the Police Department’s budget grows every year.  I only hope that the Town Council will follow through and ensure it is completed or just a theatrical joke to impress the people but it will never happen.  This has happen in the past with other Councils.

This Council, up to this point, has been straight forward with the people. Other than the elimination for the Finance Committee, the $600,000.00 cut in the School budget and what I consider illegal Executive Sessions, I strongly believe that this is the best Council this town has had in a very long time.

Clint Eastwood’s Son Revealed a Secret that Makes America Love Him Even More, Every Parent Needs To See This!

By -

There is no handbook when it comes to kids, that’s for sure. I probably wouldn’t have messed up quite so many times, and my kids probably wouldn’t be as strong and individual as they are today. But, some parents just seem to have a knack for raising kids right – and big-time Hollywood Star Clint Eastwood is no exception to the “Doing it Right” club of parents. More from Qpolitical:

Clint Eastwood’s son is coming clean about growing up in the Hollywood royalty bloodline and what he has to say about his dad’s parenting techniques is making women everywhere swoon and men wish they were him.

Maine Constitutional Carry Bill

The fight is far from over.

L.D. 652, the Constitutional Carry bill, had a public hearing last week, but now it has to survive a crucial work session and vote in the Joint Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety.

If passed, Constitutional Carry would simply affirm that if you can legally possess a weapon, you have the right to carry it concealed for self-defense - without having to beg the government for permission first.

The committee work session for the bill is this Friday, April 17, at 1 p.m. 

It’s critical you contact the committee members at the following numbers:

Sen. Kimberley Rosen: 207-469-3779 or 207-944-9179
Rep. Lori Fowle: 207-649-4863 or 207-748-3432

Rep. Timothy Theriault: 207-649-4434
Rep. Michael Timmons: 207-653-9783
Rep. Charlotte Warren: 207-441-9116

Tell them the citizens of Maine shouldn’t have to beg for government permission to exercise their rights, and they should pass L.D. 652 as written.

Insiders have warned me that some on the committee want to tear this bill to shreds and move forward with anti-gun language instead.

That's right - members of the committee want to gut the bill!

And without your support, they might win.

That’s why we need YOUR help to convince them to pass L.D. 652 as written.

Constitutional Carry will restore your Second Amendment rights.

So please contact the committee members RIGHT AWAY at the following numbers:

Sen. Kimberley Rosen: 207-469-3779 or 207-944-9179

Last night the Town Council started off with a meeting followed by a budget workshop.  The purpose of the meeting was too approved the minutes of the last meeting so it could be included with the CDBG Application which has to be submitted by Friday.  Also, the Town Manager updated the budget schedule which moved the Public Hearing from April 21st to May 5th.  This was also approved by the Council.

Next they moved into a budget workshop.  During this session, the Council reviewed the following department’s budgets:  Finance, Tax/Town Clerk, Town Manager, Codes, Assessing, Economic Development, Town Building, Technology, Sewer Department and all other Miscellaneous Departments.  The Council made several adjustments during these discussions.

After the Council had finish going through all the departments they returned to the Police Department and Public Works Department.  The Council directed the Town Manager to cut both of these budgets by $100,000.00. 

The Council reviewed the letters they had received from L/A 911 and Androscoggin County Dispatch pertaining to taking over the Lisbon Communication Center.  L/A 911 had to check with their upper management and Androscoggin County Dispatch said they could take over our Communication Center.  However, Chief Brooks stated that this is not possible.  Chairman Pesce and the Council questions Chief Brooks for a short time because Chairman Pesce said that the potential saving for the town would be approximately $191,000.00 which is a significant savings.  Chairman Pesce said the Town Manager to get clarification on the miscommunications between the two PSAP’s (L/A 911 and Androscoggin County Dispatch).

The workshop was then adjourned.

Hilary Clinton Kick Starts Campaign, While Her Aide Huma Abedin Is Under Invesgation Generational Ties to Islamic Terrorism

By -


By Matthew Vadum

At long last the Department of State is investigating why a top Hillary Clinton aide with generational ties to Islamic terrorism was allowed to work in a sensitive government position while simultaneously working for a Clinton-connected private sector consulting firm.

Hillary Clinton and the senior aide, Huma Abedin, apparently conspired to keep the sweetheart working arrangement that the Muslim Brotherhood-linked employee had at Foggy Bottom a secret. Because it involves a Clinton, the story is, of necessity, complex and convoluted. And it’s classic Hillary as she tiptoes through a minefield of ethics violations, conflicts of interest, and potential national security-related breaches.


Rep. Gowdy Grills DEA Admin. over ‘Sex Parties’ Scandal: ‘What the Hell Do You Get to Do?’

By -

RedFlagNews Drug Enforcement Administration agents attended sex parties with prostitutes while stationed overseas as far back as 2001, according to a report released Tuesday.

Money to pay prostitutes at a farewell party for a high-ranking DEA official was included in an “operational budget” that used government funds for the party, the report said. DEA agents also rented undercover apartments in Colombia and used them for parties with prostitutes, the DEA said in an internal report.

To The Youth and Inexperienced in America. You All Act, most act as the proverbial saying goes, Young, Dumb, and Full of ,,er, inexperience. Here is a Lesson that should be taken seriously.

Keep your eyes open
this is something to think about!!!
 See the Motorcycle? 

 How about now? 

A  picture is worth a thousand words.

The Honda rider was traveling at such a 'very high speed', his reaction time was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident. Swedish Police estimate a speed of ~250 KM/h (155 mph) before the bike hit the slow moving car side-on at an intersection. At that speed, they predicted that the rider's reaction time (once the vehicle came into view) wasn't sufficient enough for him to even apply the brakes. The car had two passengers and the bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them. The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact and landed 10 feet from where the collision took place.

All three involved (two in car and rider) were killed instantly. This graphic demonstration was placed at the   Stockholm Motorcycle Fair by the Swedish Police and Road Safety Department. The sign above the display also noted that the rider had only recently obtained his license.

At 250 KM (155 mph) the operator is travelling at 227 feet per second. With normal reaction time to SEE-DECIDE-REACT of 1.6 seconds the above operator would have travelled over 363 feet while making a decision on what actions to take. In this incident the Swedish police indicate that no actions were taken.

In other words, they didn't even have time to say, 'Oh, S###!'  


 As Motorcycle season is fast upon up let's ALL be Pro-Active and help prevent anything like this form every occurring in our areas or anywhere else.

At The Least, One Maine Community Has Come To Their Senses! BDN: Rockland returning foreclosed homes

ROCKLAND, Maine — City councilors took quick action Monday night in an effort to return four properties that had been seized for nonpayment of taxes or sewer fees.
The council gave unanimous preliminary approval to returning the properties. A final vote is scheduled for next month.
Last month, the city acquired three homes for nonpayment of property taxes and additional homes were taken for failure to pay sewer fees. The foreclosures are automatic under state law unless a municipal body votes to waive foreclosures.
The city initially foreclosed on the properties to protect the municipality’s ability to collect the taxes or fees that are owed on the properties. City Manager James Chaousis said that if the city had not foreclosed on the properties it would have lost its right to collect those taxes or fees. The manager said if the city began waiving taxes, other property owners might follow suit.

Egyptian court sentences leader of outlawed Muslim Brotherhood terror group and 13 other senior members to death for inciting chaos and violence

By -

Barack Hussein Obama must be outraged at this verdict against his Brotherhood pals, several of whom are serving in his own administration right now. Mohamed Badie, spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and 13 other defendants were handed death sentences as 37 people, including an Egyptian-American citizen arrested for being a material supporter of the Brotherhood, were jailed for life by a Cairo court.

UK Daily Mail  The defendants found guilty of plotting unrest from their headquarters in a sprawling Cairo protest camp in the months after the military overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.

Judge Mohamed Nagy Shehata, known for his harsh rulings in cases involving the Muslim Brotherhood, also sentenced two Islamists who have fled the country to death.

Clinton Foundation Took Millions in Foreign Cash Before Hillary Left State Dept.


Hillary Clinton

The Clinton Foundation started taking in millions of dollars worth of contributions from foreign governments while Hillary Clinton was still at the State Department, according to a Washington Post report.

The foundation agreed in 2008 that it would not take foreign donations while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, but an exemption written into the ethics agreement allowed for continued donations from some foreign donors.

The Clinton Foundation accepted millions of dollars from seven foreign governments during Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, including one donation that violated its ethics agreement with the Obama administration, foundation officials disclosed Wednesday.


Judge Jeanine: Hillary Clinton ‘Is Only Out For Herself’

 By -
On Saturday, the Fox News Channel’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine” host Judge Jeanine Pirro said Hillary Clinton ” is only out for herself.”

“I want someone who says what she means and means what she says, I want someone who understands and respects the Judeo-Christian ethic upon which this country was founded. I want  someone who cares about us, someone who cares about the American people. Hillary Clinton is not that person. She is only out for herself. It’s never her fault, it’s all about convenience, she didn’t know, and in the end what difference does it make? If you think that Hillary Clinton, the self-described champion of women and children cares about you, your kids, or anyone else for that matter, you are sorely mistaken” she said.

Audio Released of Cop Shooting and Killing College Student for Speaking Disrespectfully

Corporal Christopher Carter works for the University of the Incarnate Word campus police. In spite of shooting Robert Cameron Redus, a 23-year-old student at the university, the officer was not arrested, indicted, nor even fired. The San Antonio officer was placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation into the shooting of an unarmed and student.
Since the late-2013 shooting, Corporal Carter kept his job, until he very recently chose to leave the department on his own. A court has once again just cleared him, even while they released the audio of the incident, which proves Redus was essentially shot for being sarcastic.
Redus was shot and killed by officer Carter at 2 am after making a sarcastic remark toward the campus cop who followed him well outside of the boundaries of his campus jurisdiction, finally pulling him over, for allegedly “speeding.”
Local KSAT News says that witnesses claim the officer “emptied his gun” into Redus with no provocation.
“I didn’t hear him say anything like, ‘Get down on your hands and knees,’ you know?” one witness recalled, “I didn’t hear him say anything. He just started shooting. He emptied the gun on him… Boom, boom, boom.Six shots — five or six.”
 The court’s release of the 13-minute audio recording of the incident makes that refusal to indict even more inexplicable.
An open records request by KENS 5 forced the Alamo Heights Police Department to release the recording that Redus’ family fought for over the course of over a year.
Carter: Stop it (yelling). Stop (yelling). Stop (yelling). Redus: You’re (expletive) choking me dude. Carter: Stop (yelling). Stop (yelling). Redus: You just tried to (expletive) choke me. Carter: Stop (yelling). Stop (yelling). Or I will shoot (yelling). Stop (yelling). Redus: You’re going to (expletive) shoot me?Carter: Stop or I will shoot (yelling). Redus: You’re going to (expletive) shoot me. Carter: Stop (yelling).Redus: For trying to make you not choke me right now? Carter: Stop (yelling). Don’t put your leg up (yelling). Stop resisting (yelling). Redus: Are you going to shoot me?
Mohammad Haidarasl saw it all go down. He said that Redus’ final words were “Oh, you’re gonna shoot me?” Haidarasl added that the officer kept saying “Stop resisting, stop resisting,” even though Haidarasl saw no physical resistance at all. Redus lived below Haidarasl, who says that he was “the nicest guy.” Other classmates said that Redus was “kind, intelligent, compassionate and well-loved within the community.” “He was not an aggressive person at all, so the story doesn’t make sense,” said another anonymous student. Carter claims that “a struggle ensued” between Redus and himself. An official University statement claims that Carter has “an extensive law-enforcement background,” and has been employed for “several years” at the school. The San Antonio Express-News, however, clarifies that he has only been on the job for two-and-a-half years, and that he has been jumping from department to department before that. The Redus family responding to a coroner’s report, proving that Redus was shot at close range and in the back, recently released a statement, as follows: “We are stunned to learn that Cameron was shot in the back from very close range. The report also shows that the shot to his eye was delivered at a downward angle, again from very close range. That knowledge coupled with information from the earlier police report indicating that Cameron died on his back with his legs underneath him has left us heartbroken and shaken to the core.” If you believe this story should be front page news, nation-wide, help us SPREAD THE WORD and hold these killer cops accountable!

Last Tuesday night’s Town Council meeting, the Council voted to eliminate the Finance Committee.  They provided three reasons:  (1) the first was that the Town Manager and the Finance Director are more than qualified to handle the situation, (2) the lack of applicants, and (3) finally the finance committee could never get organized to make recommendations to the Council. 

This was all a setup to gain absolute control of all financial matters in town.  In a democracy, there are checks and balances to safeguard against corruption.  It has nothing to do with the integrity or character of those in charge but more eyes on the subject enables all aspects will be evaluated prior to a final decision.  This Council has eliminated all checks and balances and changed our form of government from a democracy to tyranny.  In this case, the Town Council has absolute control of both the School Department funds and the Municipal funds with no one checking what they are doing.

The idea that the Town Manager and the Finance Director will be able to decipher the School budget this year is ludicrous.  Mr. Rick Green and Mrs. Catherine Messmer have a history of doing an outstanding job on their budget.  The members of the School Board are very pleased with their performance and have complete faith in them to do all they can to present the best budget possible.

The Town Council has directed them to cut $600,000.00 tax dollars out of their budget or the Council will refuse their proposed budget and place before the people to vote on what the Council figures is a valid school budget.  The voters in Lisbon need to reject any and all budgets the Town Council puts before them. 

This Town Council is out of control and ONLY the people can regain control of their finances by voting all Councilors up for re-election out.  This town needs honest candidates who will always put the best interest of the town before their personal agenda.  Our current Council has forgotten it is all about the community and not themselves or following anyone else’s agenda.

The correct manner to form an efficient Finance Committee is to have the School Board appoint three members and the Town Council appoint three members with the Chair to be changed every year by a School Board member and a Councilor.  This will ensure members are familiar with both sides and can provide recommendations to the School Board and the Town Council.  As it was, the Town Council appointed all members and the majority of them were former Councilors.  These were the same individuals who created the financial situation the community is in today to include reducing our Undesignated Fund by more than two million dollars ($2,000,000.00) tax dollars.  None of these members wanted anyone to find out how they put us in this position.

At the time the Council voted to eliminate the Finance Committee there were two members on the committee.  The Councilors had two candidates to review and the Town Manager did not include the two additional applications she had received prior to the meeting.  This means the Town Council had four additional candidates to consider which if approved would have meant the Finance Committee would have six members and this was plenty to have a quorum.  With six members the Finance Committee would have been able to make the recommendations the Town Council was looking for and would keep the checks and balance in the system.

Absolute control over everything is what the Town Council was looking for and finally succeeded at getting.  
The only way to retake control of our community is find three incorruptible individuals to run in November to replace the Councilors who have sold their souls to the dark side.

 Alcohol, Gasoline, & Fleeing an Officer  Will Not Fly

By Dawn Gagnon, BDN Staff

LISBON, Maine — A local transient formerly from Augusta was arrested Friday after he allegedly stole a pickup truck and numerous items from a Capitol Avenue business, then led a Lisbon police officer in a brief pursuit that ended with a more than 80-foot plunge down to the banks of the Androscoggin River.

Hillary Support Atrophying In Swing States, Voters Say She’s ‘Not Honest’

Matt Vespa | Apr 10, 2015        

Hillary Clinton will announce her candidacy sometime over the weekend, and it appears the email fiasco, among other things, has taken a toll on her numbers. Clinton’s strength is beginning to wane in the swing states of Virginia, Colorado, and Iowa, while Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has seen a surge in support.

In a new Quinnipiac poll, Sen. Paul leads Clinton in Colorado (44/41) and Iowa (43/32), but slightly trails her in Virginia (47/43). Clinton isn’t faring any better with the rest of the Republican field in Colorado.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who’s expected to make his presidential run official on April 13, leads her by one point, 41/40. Clinton is tied with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee at 41/41, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker leads 42/41 over the former first lady. The former secretary of state leads Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) by one point, 41/41. She’s virtually tied with the entire field. She only leads Bush 41/38 and Christie 41/39, albeit not by much. It’s within the margin of error.


‘Nine-year-old pregnant’ after being raped by at least 10 Islamic State paedophiles

By -


Hundreds of Yazidi women and children who were taken hostage by the brutal regime were released this week after more than eight months in captivity.

But volunteers in huge make-shift refugee camps have given a distressing account of trauma and abuse at the hand of the jihadist group, which continues to wage a bloody war across the region.


EDITORS NOTE:  This is not about religion, it is about uncontrollable animals running loose.  No religion allows for the rape of children.

BREAKING: Congressman Finally Makes Move to Impeach Barack H. Obama… It’s About Time!

By -

After 7 years of numerous high crimes and misdemeanors, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives finally just made a move that could set off impeachment proceedings against Barack Obama.

Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., is preparing to introduce a resolution setting forth the House’s definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” drawing an unmistakable line in the sand that would directly challenge Obama’s actions.

This is the single most significant action taken by a Republican towards impeachment to date.


A Judge Just Made A Monmumental Ruling About The Pledge of Allegiance

By -

The American Humanist Association recently filed a lawsuit against a local school district for including the phrase “And Under God” during the pledge of allegiance on school property. The lawsuit contends that by having the phrase as part of the pledge of allegiance, they are breaking the law separating church and state.

The lawsuit went in front of a judge today, and he made a very important decision.

The judge completely dismissed the lawsuit.


Ben Carson Says ‘Rights of Christians’ Get Short Shrift in America

By -

Dr. Ben Carson is calling for more attention to be given to Christians and their rights, suggesting that they are being passed over in favor of other concerns, such as gender identity and sexual orientation.

“I would like to see as much emphasis on the rights of Christians and people who are members of the faith community as there is for some of the other groups,” he tells CNN’s “New Day.”


The Future of Freedom: A Feature Interview with NSA Whistleblower William Binney

  "20/20 Hindsight:Censorship on the FRONTLINE" Film Exposes WallStreet Fraud
Former NSA Director, the highest ranking National Security whistleblower in U.S. history, William Binney... a living, breathing National Treasure, and an inspiration to me personally, for standing up and doing what he knew to be the right thing, even though that act came at great risk and expense; both to him, and to those he cared about the most.

Would you like to learn more about the agenda being carried out with YOUR TAX DOLLARS, and WITHOUT your knowledge, approval, or consent?

Carefully consider everything that Binney is sharing within this historic interview, he's a 36 year veteran of America’s Intelligence Community... and he resigned from his position as Director for Global Communications Intelligence (COMINT) at the National Security Agency (NSA) and blew the whistle; after discovering that his efforts to protect the privacy and security of Americans were being undermined by those above him in the chain of command.

Want to know WHY you're losing your Civil Rights & privacy; giving them up in exchange for alleged security? Want to know why it's now YOU and your family that's being targeted by the NSA's surveillance programs?

Please watch, and share... thank you, for tuning in, and NOT dropping out!

A 36-year veteran of America’s Intelligence Community, William Binney resigned from his position as Director for Global Communications Intelligence (COMINT) at the National Security Agency (NSA) and blew the whistle, after discovering that his efforts to protect the privacy and security of Americans were being undermined by those above him in the chain of command.

The NSA data-monitoring program which Binney and his team had developed -- codenamed ThinThread -- was being aimed not at foreign targets as intended, but at Americans (codenamed as Stellar Wind); destroying privacy here and around the world. Binney voices his call to action for the billions of individuals whose rights are currently being violated.

William Binney speaks out in this feature-length interview with Tragedy and Hope's Richard Grove, focused on the topic of the ever-growing Surveillance State in America.

On January 22, 2015: (Berlin, Germany) – The Government Accountability Project (GAP) is proud to announce that retired NSA Technical Director and GAP client, William "Bill" Binney, will accept the Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence Award today in Berlin, Germany. The award is presented annually by the Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence (SAAII) to a professional who has taken a strong stand for ethics and integrity.
