Middle School Boys Soccer Results, 9/18/14, PWS vs Maranacook

The PWS Greyhounds suffered their second loss after a brutal 2-8 match on a windy Maranacook Black Bear field. The home team took an early lead putting 7 in goals before Lisbon's offense could respond with a goal of their own off the foot of Striker #6 Nico Soucy. The post half-time action was much closer with the Lisbon's defense led by Center Fullback #16 Jacob George holding the Black Bears to only one more goal while 'Hound Right Wing #3 DJ Douglass connected with Center Forward #11 Noah Austin for the final goal of the game. The [0-2]
 
Greyhounds will next face the Hale-Dale Bulldogs for their first home game on Tuesday,

Natural News: President Obama warns about Ebola outbreak "spiraling out of control"‏

Dear Lisbon Reporter and NaturalNews readers,
"World War E" is upon us. Today President Obama warned about the Ebola outbreak, saying "It's spiraling out of control. It is getting worse. It's spreading faster and exponentially. And if the outbreak is not stopped now, we could be looking at hundreds of thousands of people infected with profound political and economic and security implications for all of us."
(The funny thing is that I seem to remember myself saying all that about a month ago... is Obama ripping off my articles for his speeches? Please say no!)
Dr. Kent Brantly, the missionary doctor who survived an Ebola infection, also testified before the U.S. Senate, warning that "[Ebola is] a fire straight from the pit of Hell. We cannot fool ourselves into thinking that the vast moat of the Atlantic Ocean will protect us from this fire. [Stopping Ebola] is the only way to keep entire nations from being reduced to ashes."
To help save lives and share real solutions on Ebola, today we released Episode Five of the Pandemic Preparedness course:

TMB: Obama Declines to Attend Memorial Dedication for Disabled Veterans



President’s decision not to attend is among first in recent history

BY:
President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event.
The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C.
However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who is familiar with the situation. This would be among the first national memorials in recent history not to be formally accepted in person by a sitting U.S. president.
Organizers of the event were caught off guard when informed by the White House of the president’s decision this week and are hoping to receive an explanation from the White House as to why Obama will not be attending the ceremony, according to the source, who is involved with the memorial and was informed of the decision this week.
U.S. presidents have historically been on hand during dedication ceremonies for major memorials in D.C., including the Air Force memorial, the World War II memorial, the Vietnam War memorial, the Korean War memorial, and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, which Obama attended and spoke at.
The White House declined to comment when asked by the Washington Free Beacon to confirm if Obama would be unavailable to attend the ceremony.
“It’s disappointing that the president is unable to celebrate the dedication of this historic memorial with the heroes that it honors—our nation’s disabled veterans,” said the source.
Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell is currently scheduled to attend the ceremony, as is Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald.
The AVDLM memorial, construction of which recently finished, will honor the millions of disabled U.S. veterans who have fought in wars over the decades, including those with physical and mental injuries.
“The memorial will serve as a constant reminder of the cost of human conflict,” the memorial’s organizers wrote in a recent press release sent to reporters.
The idea for the memorial originated in 1998 and led to the formation of the Disabled Veterans’ Life Memorial Foundation, which first approached Congress to initiate the lengthy authorization process before beginning to raise funds for the memorial.
It now stands completed on a 2.4-acre sight near the National Mall, just south of the U.S. Botanic Garden.

Eagle Rising: This One Image Shows What’s Wrong with Today’s Media



By /
On Fox Business’s Cavuto the other day, host Neil Cavuto showed a graphic that kind of sums up everything that is wrong with the mainstream media today.
Over the years, we seem to have gone through a kind of metamorphosis in media – first they said that their “personal” biases didn’t effect their reporting. Then some of the media began to admit that sure, most of us are biased, but we try real hard to be fair. Now, they usually just laugh us detractors off and continue pretending that they’re doing a great job. (David Gregory anyone?)
Here is what Cavuto showed that should enlighten us all…




Celebrate Constitution Day, Sept. 17

 

On Sept. 17, 1787, 39 delegates to the Constitution affixed their names to a document drafted in Philadelphia.

With the Bill of Rights ratified in 1791, the Constitution established the free press we still enjoy in 2014.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;  or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Middle School Boys Soccer Results, 9/16/14, PWS vs Richmond‏



#11 Noah Austin managing the ball while covered by two Bobcat defenders.

The PWS Greyhounds had victory snatched from them in an exhausting 2-5 season opener with the Richmond Bobcats. Greyhound Captain #11 Noah Austin was the first to score early in the game with teammate Left Wing #3 DJ Douglass putting in another with aggressive assistance from players like Right Wing #4 Scott Smith. It wasn't until late in the first half that #5 Danny Stewart put the Bobcats on the scoreboard. In the end it was Richmond who maintained pressure in the second half on a worn 'Hound defense with Richmond's #15 Cam Dunton and Danny Stewart each putting in 2 more goals past Lisbon's returning Keeper Levi Levesque who had already denied 11 Bobcat shots. Lisbon will play their next game away at Maranacook on Thursday, September 18.

CAFR1: The Dumbing down of America - Who Profits?‏

 

The Dumbing down of America - Who Profits?
  by Walter Burien - CAFR1
  08/24/14

__________________________________________________

In Reply to Doc Blake's post copied below the WJB reply:
_____________________________________________________________


Doc Blake:
Just so you don't get played as was intended by the government boys, the illusion spoon fed us that you parroted below: "We have a rubber stamp government, run by large corporations"  Well, it was that way in the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's, and going into the 60's. But a big transition took place going into the beginning of the 50's to the end of the 60's that culminated by the mid 90's and was absolute come 2000.

The corporations, banks, insurance, and brokerage companies from the 30's to 60's were constantly seeking government funds and investment capital. They thought they could influence the same. They got it each year at an ever increasing rate. That old saying of: "Walk into my pallor said the spider to the fly" doomed those companies to takeover by the eager hand of government. 

Come the 70's "collective" local and federal government was well on its way to taking over controlling interest in those companies by direct investment and cash funding to the same. Little by little bit collective government would invest each year on average 3% to 5% of their gross income. On a good year 7% to 8%. One of my favorite expressions when it comes down to government's investments for takeover is: "there are only so many nickles to a dollar"

Come the 90's "collective" local and federal government owned the majority of those companies by investment, and was calling the shots as the "primary investor". They called the shots and those holdings were being networked via  "private' associations covertly established by the government players themselves. Private associations like GFOA.org, GASB.org, council of Mayors - State Managers - Governors - etc. And let's not forget two of the largest private associations: The Democratic and Republican parties.

 
The comprehension or even a cognitive thought generated in the public per the reality of the obvious nature of what was taking place in their face and right under their noses was diligently held back from them through massive efforts applied in all relevant communication mediums that were covertly taken over DUE TO THE MONEY and wealth ever growing involved. The public never comprehended the scope and size of the government takeover. 

The distractions, misdirections, and irrelevant promotions the public was constantly spoon fed to maintain and create a void as to the obvious was masterfully played out each and every day. For the last 10-years I have wanted to write a book entitled; "The decades of masterful entertainment applied - The road to Government takeover and ruin"
In the 80's and 90's collective US Government doing so well on the domestic front turned their focus on international takeover starting with Mexico in the 80's, moving on to India and the Soviet block countries in the 90's, and as of 2000 the big cherry to pick, China.

To pull this off it was required to keep the population delusional and misdirected to virtually the opposite thinking over the reality of the situation taking place and they pulled it off due to the massive wealth involved. The population parrots almost exactly what they are directed to parrot contrary to the basic glaring them right in the face reality of:

1. Government's increase in their gross income each and every year (almost a 3000% increase on average in 35 years)

2. Collective Governments increase in their domestic "and" International investment holdings (collectively now the primary owner of any relevant large corporation, mortgage, loans, debt instruments and totaling in value as a conservative estimate 110 trillion domestically plus another 45 trillion internationally)

3. Why do these large corporations seem to get a pass-card and policy set to do as they wish reaping in massive profits when in some case those profits generated are seriously in conflict with or in direct conflict with the public's interest and well being? The answer there is realized with another question and answer: 

How do you get the full cooperation of government? 

ANSWER: Give government the largest percentage of the take. (Bank policy; trade policy; market regulatory policy; Insurance / mortgage / loan policy over the last several decades was designed to benefit primarily the largest controlling investor - collective local and federal government)

TREASON: "Treason doth never prosper; what's the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason." Sir John Harrington, 1561-1612

When and if the pubic ever comprehends "the basics" it will all come into view very clearly. But then to cut through the masterful distractions and misdirections due to the money and wealth involve, the general public really has never had an ice-cube's chance in hell of being able to do so.

I am working on having an impact in that arena and hope to make some real progress in that direction soon. The real cute point is I think I can do it with the full cooperation of government and the primary corporations after I have the chance to brief them on how to create a win-win for one and all that creates a thriving economy for all time to come. Done through the TRF program implemented through and by the TRFA. Hard trick to pull off but I think I can do it..


Please share and publish my comments for others to see.

Truly yours,

America Dumbed down? What Do You Think? Do The Crazies in WalMart Know That They Are Crazy?
From: Doc Blake - 09/24/14

WalMart Crazies!   http://youtu.be/r1TWrPRCzbo

Could 287 Chemicals in the Blood of New Born USA Babies Make WalMart Worse?

Why Are Trace Chemicals Showing Up in Umbilical Cord Blood.  http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/chemicals-umbilical-cord-blood/

This is America dumb-ed down, and totally clueless in WalMart! Brain surgeon and retired neurologist Dr. Russel Blaylock spells this out in the video below.  Everyone in America needs to see this video because the implications are becoming such a deep and frighting nightmare as you can clearly see in Walmart and other public areas?

Dr. Russel Blaylock, Video  http://youtu.be/CKjvfc7Fcdk

Instead of looking toward a bright future for humanity expressing the highest ideals assisted by its government, the one our founding fathers foresaw. We have a rubber stamp government, run by large corporations introducing whatever they please in the way of chemicals, heavy metals, GMO's and toxic waste into the food-chain. Bringing mental and physical diseases to a trusting, naive public who believe everything is just fine except they are sick. While on the other side the medical establishment reaps the dividends of these chemically sick Americans and treats them with poisonous, mentally deranging and addictive drugs. So we end up in a mad house country, with the mental patients running the show.

Solution to the Problem
A hell of a lot of government, scientific, medical and business leaders need to be convicted for this and spend a great deal of time in prisons and mental institutions. Because they have committed crimes against humanity and they are far too dangerous to the public to be allowed to cause more harm.

Happy Healthy Trails,

Recap Town Council Workshop/Meeting - September 9th , 2014



RECAP TOWN COUNCIL WORKSHOP/MEETING – SEPTEMBER 9TH

At last night’s Town Council Workshop/Meeting, the Council discussed two items during the workshop.  The first one was “Server Upgrade & Copier Bid” and the other was on “The Utility Operations Proposal”.

The “Server Upgrade & Copier Bid” discussion lasted approximately one hour and involved the three vendors who bid on the contract.  Chairwoman Ward and members of the council had specific questions to ask each vendor.  The vendors were very open and eager to answer all questions.

During the “The Utility Operations Proposal”, which lasted a little short of half an hour, it was spent trying to determine who was hiring Eaton & Peabody.  It was confusing who Eaton Peabody was supposed to provide their report to.  In the end, the Chain of Command was established and everyone was happy.

Next, the Town Council moved into a regular meeting and voted on the “Server Upgrade & Copier Bid”.  The vote was 6-0 with Councilor Metivier excused.   The contract was awarded to Symquest for $56,656.00.  This consolidates the networking with the copiers; all under one company.

Eagle Rising: Bombshell! House Republicans Prove Democrats Working with IRS to Cover-Up Corruption

By /

Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) has, at times, seemed to be on a Quixotic quest to find out what really happened at the IRS that created a culture which would encourage senior officials to persecute Americans, simply for being conservative. But over the last year or so, Congressman Issa has been able to dig up enough evidence to reasonably prove that there was more going on at the IRS than the government was leading us to believe. Their original story that it was just a “couple of bad eggs” in the Cincinatti office fell apart quickly as the malfeasance quite obviously climbed at least as high as 2nd in command Lois Lerner.
Since that revelation, the investigation has been stonewalled at every turn, with dozens of government workers claiming to have lost emails and had hard drives crash – stories which fly in the face of credulity and stretch the understanding of even the most sympathetic of onlookers. The worst part is that these computer problems seem contained to the people under investigation, and it seems that NONE OF THEM followed protocol for their computer problems (the government has a very intricate set of plans for handling such issues).
Now comes some new, not-so-shocking information giving us more evidence of Democrat efforts to cover up the IRS’ crimes.
It seems that the very people at the Justice Department who should have been investigating and uncovering the evils at the IRS were working hand-in-hand with Democrat politicians to hinder Republican efforts to investigate.




Apparently last Friday, September 5th, an aide to Attorney General Eric Holder placed a call to Congressman Issa believing he was actually contacting Issa’s Democrat counterpart, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD). The mistake was not immediately apparent to either side of the phone call, until the aide, one Brian Fallon, made a request to leak some documents related to the IRS investigation to the media “before the majority” (House Republicans) could share the documents.
Basically, the Justice Department had some damning paperwork that would be more evidence of IRS malfeasance. They wanted to get their version of the story out there before Republicans could, so they wanted to see if Rep, Cummings and his office could help them get it to a few key reporters. What this means is that the highest ranking Democrat involved in investigating the IRS was actually helping cover up their crimes!


It would be like a man getting arrested for murder, then a group of the officers involved in the investigation deliberately acting to hide, taint or obfuscate evidence!
Congressman Issa is understandably upset.
He wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder to register his dismay with the situation.
“It strains credulity to believe that the Department would seek to begin to improve relations via a telephone call between two individuals who had never spoken to each other before at 5:01pm on a Friday afternoon at the end of a District Work Period in the waning days of the 113th Congress,” Issa wrote.

Join MHPC for lunch and Reversing the Tide: Undoing Five Decades of Liberal Policies in Maine‏

Reversing the Tide:
Undoing Five Decades of Liberal Policies in Maine
Please Join Us
 
Liberals in Maine have a true political machine, and conservatives don’t.  With an avalanche of money, volunteers, activists and ally groups to help them accomplish their agenda for five decades, they have dictated policy in Maine.  Conservatives, on the other hand, have been unable to build the necessary infrastructure to compete.  Matthew Gagnon, CEO, The Maine Heritage Policy Center, will discuss the unique challenges the Right faces, and how Maine Heritage plans to turn the tables on the Left, to create something that will defeat five decades of destructive, regressive policy in Maine.
