A cafe owner was ordered to remove an extractor fan because the smell of her frying bacon offended passing Muslims.

Planning officials acted against Beverley Akciecek, 49, after being told her next door neighbour’s Muslim friends had felt ”physically sick” due to the ”foul odour.”

The fan has been in Beverley’s Snack Shack takeaway in the Shaw Heath area of the town for the past three years.

And the mother-of-seven whose husband Cetin, 50, is himself a Turkish Muslim work more than fifty hours a week buying, preparing and cooking hot and cold sandwiches and hot-pots for their customers.

But neighbour Graham Webb-Lee complained that his Muslim friends refused to visit him becase they ”can’t stand the smell of bacon.”

And councillors at Liberal Democrat run Stockport Council in Greater Manchester ruled the ‘odours given off from the vent were unacceptable for neighbouring residents.’

Mrs Akciecek who plans to appeal against the decision said, “I just think it’s just crazy. Cetin’s friends actually visit the shop, they’re regular visitors, they’re Muslim people, the come in a couple of times a week.

”I have Muslim people come in for cheese toasties. Cetin cooks the food himself, he cooks the bacon.
“When we go to a cafe my husband wouldn’t be offended by the smell of bacon. His friends are not offended by it, we have three visitors who come here for a sandwich, friends of my husband, and the smell doesn’t offend them at all.

”My brother-in-law doesn’t flinch if he comes and we’ve just taken out three trays of bacon.”
The couple took over the take-away on Adswood Road in Cale Green, Stockport, in 2007 from the previous owner and replaced the exisiting extractor fan, which had been there for six years, with a new modern one.

They claim they received no complaints about the cafe which is open from 7.30am-2.30pm six days a week, until around eighteen months ago when they received a letter from environmental services to say Mr Webb-Lee had complained about the smell.

“We’ve never had a problem about the smell because everything is pre-cooked,” said Mrs Akciecek.
“We cook it in the oven so there’s no foul smell. It’s pre-cooked so the smell isn’t as strong when we’re frying it off. It’s like living next to someone who’s cooking a Sunday breakfast but it’s not constant it’s just in the morning.

“It’s been a sandwich shop for about eight years, cooking exactly the same stuff. The lady before me did double because they were actually building new houses across the road so she was really busy. She was here from 6am-4pm because they were so busy.

“They were there before me but they were also there when the lady who owns the business was here and she was doing double what we are. She had five staff, you can imagine how bust that shop was and they never complained at all.”

They say that Environmental services had been out to inspect their property after their neighbour complained about a foul odour last year, but they ruled that the smell was not causing a problem.

“Environmental services said everything is ok. They kept coming back and guaging it and said there was no problem and because they didn’t take any action they complained again,” she added.

Ron Brown:. The Commerce Secretary died on  April 3, 1996, in an Air Force jet carrying Brown and 34 others, including 14 business executives on a trade mission to Croatia, crashed into a mountainside. The Air Force, in a 22-volume report issued in June of 1996, confirmed its initial judgment that the crash resulted from pilot errors and faulty navigation equipment At the time of Brown’s death, Independent Counsel Daniel Pearson was seeking to determine whether Brown had engaged in several sham financial transactions with longtime business partner Nolanda Hill shortly before he became secretary of commerce.

William Colby: Retired CIA director was found dead on May 6,1996 after his wife reported him missing on April 27,1996. Apparently, Colby decided to go on a impromptu canoeing excursion and never returned.

Strategic Investor had covered the Vince Foster suicide and had hired handwriting experts to review Foster’s suicide note.

Admiral Jeremy Boorda: Died on May 16,1996 after he went home for lunch and decided to shoot himself in the chest (by one report, twice) rather than be interviewed by Newsweek magazine that afternoon.

There were other reports that Neil Moody had discovered something very unsettling among his stepmother’s private papers and was threatening to go public with it just prior to the beginning of the Democratic National Convention. He was alleged to have been talking to Bob Woodward of the Washington Post about a blockbuster story. Witnesses said they saw Neil Moody sitting in his car arguing with another person just prior to His car suddenly speeding off out of control and hitting a brick wall.

Barbara Wise: Wise a 14-year Commerce Department employee found dead and partially naked in her office following a long weekend. She worked in the same section as John Huang. Officially, she is said to have died of natural causes.

Doug Adams: Died January 7, 1997- A lawyer in Arkansas who got involved trying to help the people who were being swindled out of their life savings. Adams was found in his vehicle with a gunshot wound to his head in a Springfield Mo. hospital parking lot.

Mary C. Mahoney: 25, murdered at the Georgetown Starbuck’s coffee bar over the 4th of July ’97 weekend. She was a former White House intern who worked with John Huang. Apparently she knew Monica Lewinsky and her sexual encounters with Bill Clinton. Although not verified, it has been said that Lewinsky told Linda Tripp that she did not want to end up like Mahoney.

Ronald Miller: Suddenly took ill on October 3rd,1997 and steadily worsened until his death 9 days later. (This pattern fits Ricin poisoning.) Owing to the strangeness of the illness, doctors at the Integris Baptist Medical Center referred the matter to the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office. The Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office promptly ran tests on samples of Ron Miller’s blood, but has refused to release the results or even to confirm that the tests were ever completed.
Had been investigated by authorities over the sale of his company, Gage Corp. to Dynamic Energy Resources, Inc. was the man who tape recorded Gene and Nora Lum and turned those tapes (and other records) over to congressional oversight investigators. The Lums were sentenced to prison for campaign finance violations, using “straw donors” to conceal the size of their contributions to various candidates. Indeed, Dynamic Energy Resources, Inc. had hired Ron Brown’s son Michael solely for the purpose of funneling $60,000 through him to the Commerce Secretary, according to Nolanda Hill’s testimony.

Sandy Hume: On Sunday, February 22nd, 1998, Sandy Hume, the 28 year old son of journalist Britt Hume, was reportedly found dead in his Arlington, Virginia home. Aside from the statement that this was an “apparent” suicide, there remains in place a total media blackout on this story, possibly out of concern that the actual facts will not withstand public scrutiny. Worked for Hill magazine, about Congress for Congress.

Jim McDougal: Bill and Hillary Clinton friend, banker, and political ally, sent to prison for  eighteen felony convictions. A key whitewater witness, dies of a heart attack on March, 8 1998. As of this writing allegations that he was given an injection of the diuretic lasix has not been denied or confirmed.
Died on March 8, 1998


Johnny Lawhon: 29, died March 29, 1998- The Arkansas transmission specialist who discovered a pile of Whitewater documents in the trunk of an abandoned car on his property and turned them over to Starr, was killed in a car wreck two weeks after the McDougal death.. Details of the “accident” have been sketchy — even from the local Little Rock newspaper.

Charles Wilbourne Miller: 63, was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head on November 17, 1998  in a shallow pit about 300 yards from his ranch house near Little Rock. Police found a .410 gauge shotgun near Miller’s body and a Ruger .357-caliber revolver submerged in water. Investigators concluded the Ruger was the weapon used by Miller to kill himself. Yet, two rounds in the handgun’s cylinder had been spent.
He had long served as executive vice president and member of the board of directors for a company called Alltel and was deeply involved in his own software engineering company until the day he died. Alltel is the successor to Jackson Stephens’ Systematics, the company that provided the software for the White House’s “Big Brother” data base system and that was behind the administration’s plan to develop the secret computer “Clipper” chip to bug every phone, fax and email transmission in America.

Carlos Ghigliotti: 42, was found dead in his home just outside of Washington D.C. on April 28, 2000. There was no sign of a break-in or struggle at the firm of Infrared Technology  where the badly decomposed body of Ghigliotti was found. Ghigliotti had not been seen for several weeks, commercial cleaning companies may have been contacted in order for the offices to be cleaned.
Ghigliotti, a thermal imaging analyst hired by the House Government Reform Committee to review tape of the siege, said he determined the FBI fired shots on April 19, 1993. The FBI has explained the light bursts on infrared footage as reflections of sun rays on shards of glass or other debris that littered the scene.
“I conclude this based on the groundview videotapes taken from several different angles simultaneously and based on the overhead thermal tape,” Ghigliotti told The Washington Post last October. “The gunfire from the ground is there, without a doubt.”
Ghigliotti said the tapes also confirm the Davidians fired repeatedly at FBI agents during the assault, which ended when flames raced through the compound. About 80 Branch Davidians perished that day, some from the fire, others from gunshot wounds.
Mark Corallo, a spokesman for the congressional committee chaired by Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind., said that police found the business cards of a committee investigator in Ghigliotti’s office. Corallo said Ghigliotti’s work for the committee ended some time ago.

Tony Moser: 41was killed as he crossed a street in Pine Bluff, Ark on on June 10, 2000. Killed 10 days after being named a columnist for the Democrat-Gazette newspaper and two days after penning a stinging indictment of political corruption in Little Rock.
Police have concluded that no charges will be filed against the unnamed driver of a 1995 Chevrolet pickup, which hit Moser as he was walking alone in the middle of unlit Rhinehart Road about 10:10 p.m
Police say they have ruled out foul play and will file no charges against the driver because he was not intoxicated and there was no sign of excessive speed.

AND OF COURSE THERE ARE THE VICTIMS IN THE ATTACK ON BENGHAZI TO ADD TO THE LIST! R.I.P. CHRISTOPHER STEVENS. SEAN SMITH, GLEN DOHERTY, TYRONE S. WOODS

Muhammad... THE CHILD LOVER! The PEDOPHILE!!!

Muhammad... THE CHILD LOVER!

Aisha was just six years old when she was betrothed to Muhammad, himself in his 50s, and only nine when the marriage was consummated. While the quran says: "marriage is valid only between consenting adults, and that a woman has the right to choose her own spouse"

Muhammad had sex with just about anyone he pleased, thanks to Allah's extraordinary interest in his personal sex life, as immortalized in the Quran.

Although the Quran didn't appear to have enough space for topics like universal love and brotherhood (which Muslims sometimes insist are there, but aren't), the list of sexual partners that Muhammad was entitled to is detailed more than once, sometimes in categories and sometimes in reference to specific persons (ie. Zaynab and Mary).

Muhammad was married to thirteen women, including eleven at one time. He relegated them to either consecutive days or all in one night. He married a 9-year-old girl (whom she THIGHED since she was six) and even his adopted son's wife. On top of that, Muhammad had a multitude of slave girls with whom he had sex - sometimes on the very days in which they had watched their husbands and fathers die at the hands of his army.

So, by any realistic measure, the creator of the world's most sexually restrictive religion was also one of the most sexually indulgent characters in history.

Silence is Consent - Why I Oppose Islam

Silence is Consent - Why I Oppose Islam

When I consider the rampant pedophilia practiced in Islam - modeled after Muhammad's own penchant for child marriage, the pure evil of acid attacks, the depraved child torture of Female Genital Mutilation, the heartbreaking sadness of the Bacha Bazi boys who are sold into sexual slavery, the commonplace brutality of domestic violence, the overt misogyny of the burqa, the open practice of legal slavery, and the avowed execution of people of other faiths and those who leave Islam, I find it incomprehensible that anyone in their right mind would want to belong to this barbaric cult.

When I see the Islamic women, mourning their sons and surrendering their daughters to pedophiles, oppression and torture, and I wonder, "Why? Why do you continue to allow this? Why do you not rise up against this madness and protect your children?"

I don't expect everyone in the world to follow the same religious tradition. Of course not. People can be Christian or Jewish or Buddhist or Hindu or atheist, I don't care. But Islam is not like any other faith because it is not a legitimate religion. It is a totalitarian cult created by a madman in the 7th century which seeks to control literally every aspect of human existence by threat of violence or death.

I truly cannot understand why any sane person would want to be a part of this savagery, and for those who claim Islam is a "religion of peace" - why they do nothing to stop it. Silence is consent.

10 Reasons to vote Democratic

10 Reasons to vote Democratic!

Clicking on an ad sponsor helps to support The Butterfly Bonsai

1. I voted Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I've decided to marry my German Shepherd.

2. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

3. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

4. I voted Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

5. I voted Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that get police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.

6. I voted Democrat because I'm not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

7. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away the social security from those who paid into it.

8. I voted Democrat because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

9. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

10. I voted Democrat because I think that it's better to pay billions for their oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher or fish.

And I'll add # 11. I voted Democrat because I am too stupid to think for myself. I'm a "sheeple" and believe the benevolent government will look out for me and take good care of me. And it's important for our comrade leaders in D.C. to live better, have better health insurance, and be able to jet to anywhere in the world on my dime. Let's all hold hands and sing "kum by yah"!

25 Reasons to Dislike Liberal Ideology

25 Reasons to Dislike the Liberal Ideology

Sponsor Ads help to fund The Butterfly Bonsai

1) Only liberals would be cruel enough to pick on kids running lemonade stands with a permit, children putting on Christmas plays at school and the Boy Scouts.
2) Because the closest thing to Sodom and Gomorrah in the modern world is San Francisco and Berkeley.

3) Whether you’re talking about cop killers, terrorists, radical Islamists or dictators, all you have to do is say, “I hate America,” and liberals start to sympathize with you.

4) Liberals are actually bothered by people who do love America. On the rare occasion when you do see a liberal waving a flag, look for a camera.

5) The same people who voted Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama into office think they’re smarter than tradition, the Founding Fathers and God Himself.

6) Liberals might not want to admit it, but the world would have been a better place if Mary Jo Kopechne had crawled up out of that car instead of Ted Kennedy.

7) Only an ass could like Bill Maher, Alan Grayson or Sheila Jackson Lee.

8) Liberals believe in taking money from people who earn it, handing it out as bribes in order to get more power and then using that power to hurt the people that are giving them money.

9) The same liberal who’ll laugh at a rape joke about Sarah Palin and then attack Michele Bachmann’s family will then turn around and accuse someone else of being sexist for respectfully noting that a woman is attractive.

10) Liberals view hooking people on welfare and food stamps as a core part of their election strategy, which is terrible for the country, shows they have no character and requires more than a little hatred for poor people.

11) The dumbest, most close-minded and mean spirited people in all of politics are inevitably liberals who are convinced they’re brilliant, open-minded and compassionate because they call themselves liberals.

12) A policy that makes liberals feel superior and caring that doesn’t work and wastes billions is considered a smashing success because they genuinely DON’T CARE WHETHER THEIR POLICIES ACTUALLY HELP PEOPLE OR NOT.

13) The same liberal who pretends to be angry about Susan Smith or Casey Anthony will then turn around and give the thumbs up to women who do the same thing to their children via abortion.

14) There’s a reason why the average homeschooled kid gets a better education than he would in a public school run by liberals. It’s because the kid’s parents are interested in educating him while his liberal teachers view public schools as just another way to indoctrinate children.

15) Noam Chomsky is an America-hating creep and to think of him as some kind of genius, you have to both despise our country enough to suspend your disbelief and be largely ignorant of world history.

16) Anyone whose first reaction after a terrorist attack is, “Why do they hate us?” is just an intolerable douche.

17) Liberals talk up Hillary Clinton as the most prominent and important female politician in America; yet her entire political career is based on the fact that she married Bill Clinton. That’s actually kind of pathetic.

18) Liberals have been big supporters of slavery, Indian massacres, the KKK, eugenics, fascism, communism and Jim Crow laws. Then, down the road, after liberals finally join everyone else, they try to claim that conservatives still support all the practices that we fought liberals on from the beginning.

19) Liberals think black Americans are inferior to whites, which is why the worst, most crime-ridden places to live in America are inevitably run by liberals. That’s acceptable to liberals because they don’t think black Americans deserve any better.

20) A liberal is more likely to support a man who murders a cop like Mumia Abu Jamal than cops who want to regularly patrol a bad neighborhood in force to keep the criminals from terrorizing the innocent people who live there.

21) The average middle aged Tea Party-er who’s going to rallies, talking about the Constitution and calling for reduced spending cares more about “the children” than 99% of the liberals out there who demand that we support one stupid program after the other “for the children.”

22) You have to be a horrible human being to be okay with terrorists like Bill Ayers teaching kids at a college.

23) Because liberals are unable to ever admit they’re wrong, they systematically ruin and destroy everything they become involved with and then either point the finger elsewhere or demand even more government involvement to fix the problems they created.

24) Detroit – and, yes, liberals did that.

25) Even “liberal Christians” are generally supportive of other liberals who attack Christianity, which is why “liberal Christians” is in quotes.

Illegal Aliens Complain They Get Student Loans Instead of GRANTS

Illegal Aliens Complain They Get Student Loans Instead of GRANTS
By Top Right News on January 7, 2014

Outrageous. But not at all surprising. Illegal aliens, who broke our nation’s laws to come here and stay here, yet receive benefits that millions of American citizens don’t get — in-state tuition — are now complaining that they don’t get it for FREE.

That’s right, despite the University of California system’s generous and shameful pledge to help illegal aliens earn a college degree — at the same time they are slashing aid to citizen students to the bone —  those illegal students are complaining that the aid will come by way of student loans instead of grants.

As UC officials discuss specifics on how the $5 million UC President Janet Napolitano recently budgeted to support illegal alien students will be allocated – much of which will go to student loan programs, it’s been decided - some student activists have bemoaned that it’s not fair to strap stressed out, disadvantaged students in the country illegally with college debt.

    “We think that the 5 million dollars will have an impact if the money goes directly into the pockets of undocumented students,” By Any Means Necessary campus activist group leader David Douglasstold The Daily Californian in an email.

The Californian goes on to report:

    Sophomore Ivan Villasenor Madriz, an undocumented student, spoke with representatives from the UC Office of the President and other undocumented student representatives across the UC campuses in a conference call the evening of Dec. 18.

    Madriz said the students raised concerns about the use of the funds for loans rather than other types of aid such as grants and work-study. He said loans should not be considered “aid” because they are only increasing student debt and putting more pressure on students.

    “The loans that are given out are making one hole to fill another,” he said. “It defeats the purpose of so-called ‘financial aid.’ ”

California — America’s Sanctuary State — going down the rathole of debt to pay for millions of illegal aliens, while schools, hositals and social services go bankrupt. This is what will happen to America should the Obama-Schumer-Rubio-Ryan amnesty become law.

Voluntary government checkpoints spark backlash

Voluntary government checkpoints spark backlash


Larry Copeland, USA TODAY 12:30 a.m. EST January 7, 2014

Checkpoints, which the government insists are voluntary, are creating a backlash because of the presence of uniformed police officers. Some police departments won't participate anymore.

A tactic used by the federal government to gather information for anti-drunken and drugged driving programs is coming under criticism in cities around the country, and some local police agencies say they will no longer take part.

The tactic involves a subcontractor for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that uses off-duty but uniformed police at voluntary roadside checkpoints where motorists are asked on their behavior behind the wheel. In some cases, workers at the checkpoints collect blood and saliva samples, in addition to breath samples. NHTSA has said previously that the surveys do not collect any DNA. Drivers are not charged at the checkpoints.

In an era of rampant distrust of the federal government and in the wake of the Obama administration's National Security Agency surveillance scandal in which the agency has collected telephone calling records from millions of unsuspecting Americans, the checkpoints have come under intense criticism in several cities this year.

"Five years ago it would have been a different story," says St. Charles County, Mo., Sheriff Tom Neer, who recently authorized deputies to participate in a checkpoint in his St. Louis suburb and saw a public backlash. "There're just such strong anti-government feelings among people. Under the circumstances, I would not allow them to do it again. It's just because of the perception."

The NHTSA has conducted the surveys for more than 40 years, in cities across the USA and usually at roughly 10-year intervals. In many cases, off-duty, uniformed police officers randomly wave motorists over; they are then asked by workers for subcontractor Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation if they will participate in the voluntary survey. Drivers who decline are allowed to leave.

However, the mere presence of uniformed officers gives the checkpoints an aura of authority, says Mary Catherine Roper, a senior staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania. She is studying the issue there after motorists complained about a survey checkpoint last month in Reading.

"We have a whole bunch of rules about when police can pull you over," she says. "It looks like an exercise of official authority when a cop pulls you over. People assume it's mandatory, and of course you're going to stop. That's a constitutional problem right there.

"Normally, police cannot pull you over unless they have a good reason for thinking you've done something wrong," Roper says. "There's no exemption to the Constitution for conducting a survey. They're pulling people off the road."

She suggests "there are lots of other places you can talk to drivers. You could hand out notes at a toll booth asking them to participate. You could do them at highway rest stops. There are a lot of ways to do this that do not involve … the government forcing you off the road."

This year's round of surveys is only the second time that data have been obtained on drug use by drivers.

In an e-mailed statement, NHTSA defended the surveys: "Each year, close to 10,000 people die in drunk driving crashes: 27 people a day, or one person every 53 minutes, according to data (from NHTSA)," the statement says.

"To better understand the issue, the agency has regularly conducted its National Roadside Survey of Alcohol and Drugged Driving in communities across the country for over 40 years," according to the statement. "The survey provides useful data about alcohol and drug use by drivers, and participation is completely voluntary and anonymous. More than 60 communities across the country will participate this year, many of which participated in the previous survey in 2007. NHTSA always works closely with state and local safety officials and local law enforcement to conduct these surveys as we work to better inform our efforts to reduce drunk and drugged driving."

Drivers have reportedly been offered $10 for cheek swabs and $50 for blood.

The checkpoints spurred complaints in November from drivers in the Fort Worth area. Fort Worth Police Chief Jeffrey Halstead apologized for his officers' participation on the department's Facebook page. He added: "Any future Federal survey of this nature, which jeopardizes the public's trust, will not be approved for the use of Fort Worth police."

And in June, Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, a Republican, said the stops were "bad timing" after drivers complained about checkpoints in St. Clair County and Bibb County, both near Birmingham. State officials investigated and found that motorists didn't report "undue pressure" to participate, but suggested to Bentley that state police refrain from helping with future studies.

Neer said six of his off-duty, uniformed officers were "duped" into moonlighting at the checkpoints. "Our department coordinator got information from the subcontractor, and came to me," Neer says. "I approve all overtime compliance with private entities. They wanted to know if we'd provide a couple of deputies just for security."

At the Dec. 6 and 7 checkpoints, uniformed deputies in marked cruisers flagged down motorists and showed them to a marked area alongside the road where a NHTSA subcontractor asked if they wanted to participate in the survey. Those who declined were allowed to leave, Neer says.

He says he had not expected the deputies to actively participate, but only to provide security.

Margo's Rules to Live By...

The following are life's rules that I live by:


If you do not like guns, do not own one.

If you do not like alcohol, do not drink it.

If you do not believe in abortions, do not get one. (However, if you have not made that choice by the third month, you have waited too long!)

Do not try to force others to live by your, (or your lack of), religion.

If you do not believe in smoking, don't smoke!

If you are an Illegal Alien, you have ZERO rights in my country! You should be forced to go to your country of origin as soon as you are located! And no, you are not "undocumented", you are ILLEGAL! That says it all!

If I have to be drug tested to go to work, you should be drug tested to receive Welfare benefits of any kind!

It takes an ID card to drive, board a plane, cash a check, open a bank account, get Welfare, so many other things. It should take an ID to be able to vote!

If you forcibly rape a man, woman, or child, you should face the death penalty!

If you commit first degree murder, you should face the death penalty!

If you commit animal abuse, you should NEVER be allowed to own another of God's creatures. EVER!

Never, ever talk trash about our Military Service Men and Women! They protect your right to trash the government! They are doing the duty you can't or won't do!

Our Military NEEDS You NOW!!!

Our Military NEEDS you NOW!!!

Taken from MilSpouse Magazine

The holiday season has drawn to a close.  We (the military community) have been patiently waiting for Congress’ return.  We are waiting for them to execute on beginning to evaluate the repeal of the deferred compensation for military retirees via the Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) reduction.

Over the last week or so, a couple of articles have made their way to the surface that actually endorse this deferred compensation cut.  One, in particular, actually suggests that since he doesn’t need it neither then should anyone else.

I’m sorry…whaa-aat?

In the interest of full disclose, this particular veteran, not-in-need-of-money apparently, is a retired flag officer.  In civilian speak, that means he makes quite a bit more than most and certainly quite a bit more than the average.

Fighting for the repeal of deferred compensation cuts is not for HIM.  It’s for everyone else.

And, also to provide some perspective, when these “luxury” numbers get tossed around like “$70,000 per year including housing and allowances”, you need to understand a few things:

  •     NONE of these “housing and allowances” are included in the retirement compensation.
  •     Retirement compensation ONLY includes ONE HALF of base pay which is significantly less than what a military member gets paid overall while on active duty. 
  •     When “retirement” begins after 20 years, it is deferred compensation.  That means, the military members who get paid on active duty are actually agreeing to take less up front (while they are on active duty) with the proviso that they get what was earned when active duty is over (retirement).
  •     Retirement is not the right word to use.  AT.  ALL.  No one retires from the military in the civilian sense of the word.
  •     None of this matters at all.  Why?  Because those currently serving and those already in the retirement system, agreed to terms up front.  Those terms need to be honored.  In the civilian sector, a cut in deferred compensation without due process is a gross breach of contract.
  •     Don’t confuse a “job” with “duty.”   That’s why it’s called Active DUTY.  Not Active JOB.
  •     The talking heads saying things like “luxury”, “generous” and “working aged” are using those terms very deliberately.  And, they are hoping that by using them, you (the average American Joe or Jane) will then suddenly feel like the military are somehow getting too much.   I can assure you they are not.
  •     The talking heads also say, “Get a job at Walmart and see what you get” and to them I say, “Grab a gun and leave your family to go to Afghanistan for 15 months out of duty, over and over, and see what you get (or what you lose).”
  •     Military cannot---CANNOT---speak out for themselves.  They cannot without fear of retribution say a single, solitary word on their own behalf.

So, I urge you think back.  And, think back a while.

Then, I want you to remember:
                      Who ran IN to the Boston Marathon?

                      Who saved over 2000 people in the flood ravaged 9th Ward after Katrina?

                      And, then turned right around and did the same after the same
                      coastline  was hit by follow-on Hurricane Rita?

                      And, again three years later with Hurricane Ike?

                      Who took personal leave and helped rebuild the shores of
                      New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy?

                      Who aided Joplin, Missouri after a devastating tornado?

The military does this while providing humanitarian aid and supplies, as well as emergency shelters and hospitals around the globe when human beings need them.  Any human beings.  They do all of this---ALL of this---while at war on at least two fronts.    They do this while war-weary, battle-beaten and so worn down that another 15 month deployment seems impossible.   Most of our military have done greater than 3 deployments in the last 12 years.  That’s almost 4 YEARS they have been gone.  

FOUR YEARS.

They do it out of a sense of duty.  Not to Congress.  Not to this nation.  But, to you.  To me.  To every American who has watched them run in when everyone else runs out.  To every American who, in their darkest hour, had no other hope in the world but to grab onto the hand of an American service member.  To every American and every human being who needed something, ANYthing, to hold on to.

When the worst happens, it is the military that comes running.  Every.  Single.  Time.

And, they need you now.

They need each and every one of you to stand beside THEM and fight for what they were promised.   Please.

What is Modern Slavery

What is Modern Slavery?


Over the past 15 years, “trafficking in persons” and “human trafficking” have been used as umbrella terms for activities involved when someone obtains or holds a person in compelled service.
The United States government considers trafficking in persons to include all of the criminal conduct involved in forced labor and sex trafficking, essentially the conduct involved in reducing or holding someone in compelled service. Under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act as amended (TVPA) and consistent with the United Nations Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children (Palermo Protocol), individuals may be trafficking victims regardless of whether they once consented, participated in a crime as a direct result of being trafficked, were transported into the exploitative situation, or were simply born into a state of servitude. Despite a term that seems to connote movement, at the heart of the phenomenon of trafficking in persons are the many forms of enslavement, not the activities involved in international transportation.

Forced Labor

Also known as involuntary servitude, forced labor may result when unscrupulous employers exploit workers made more vulnerable by high rates of unemployment, poverty, crime, discrimination, corruption, political conflict, or even cultural acceptance of the practice. Immigrants are particularly vulnerable, but individuals also may be forced into labor in their own countries. Female victims of forced or bonded labor, especially women and girls in domestic servitude, are often sexually exploited as well.

Sex Trafficking

When an adult is coerced, forced, or deceived into prostitution – or maintained in prostitution through coercion – that person is a victim of trafficking. All of those involved in recruiting, transporting, harboring, receiving, or obtaining the person for that purpose have committed a trafficking crime. Sex trafficking can also occur within debt bondage, as women and girls are forced to continue in prostitution through the use of unlawful “debt” purportedly incurred through their transportation, recruitment, or even their crude “sale,” which exploiters insist they must pay off before they can be free.
It is critical to understand that a person’s initial consent to participate in prostitution is not legally determinative; if an individual is thereafter held in service through psychological manipulation or physical force, that person is a trafficking victim and should receive the benefits outlined in the United Nations’ Palermo Protocol and applicable laws.

Bonded Labor

One form of coercion is the use of a bond, or debt. Often referred to as “bonded labor” or “debt bondage,” the practice has long been prohibited under U.S. law by its Spanish name, peonage, and the Palermo Protocol calls for its criminalization as a form of trafficking in persons. Workers around the world fall victim to debt bondage when traffickers or recruiters unlawfully exploit an initial debt the worker assumed as part of the terms of employment. Workers may also inherit intergenerational debt in more traditional systems of bonded labor.

Debt Bondage Among Migrant Laborers

Abuses of contracts and hazardous conditions of employment for migrant laborers do not necessarily constitute human trafficking. However, the burden of illegal costs and debts on these laborers in the source country, often with the support of labor agencies and employers in the destination country, can contribute to a situation of debt bondage. This is often exacerbated when the worker’s status in the country is tied to the employer in the context of employment-based temporary work programs and there is no effective redress for abuse.

Involuntary Domestic Servitude

A unique form of forced labor is the involuntary servitude of domestic workers, whose workplace is informal, connected to their off-duty living quarters, and not often shared with other workers. Such an environment, which often socially isolates domestic workers, is conducive to nonconsensual exploitation since authorities cannot inspect private property as easily as formal workplaces. Investigators and service providers report many cases of untreated illnesses and, tragically, widespread sexual abuse, which in some cases may be symptoms of a situation of involuntary servitude. Ongoing international efforts seek to ensure that not only that administrative remedies are enforced but also that criminal penalties are enacted against those who hold others in involuntary domestic servitude.

Forced Child Labor

Most international organizations and national laws recognize that children may legally engage in certain forms of work. There is a growing consensus, however, that the worst forms of child labor should be eradicated. The sale and trafficking of children and their entrapment in bonded and forced labor are among these worst forms of child labor. A child can be a victim of human trafficking regardless of the location of that exploitation. Indicators of forced labor of a child include situations in which the child appears to be in the custody of a non-family member who has the child perform work that financially benefits someone outside the child’s family and does not offer the child the option of leaving. Anti-trafficking responses should supplement, not replace, traditional actions against child labor, such as remediation and education. However, when children are enslaved, their abusers should not escape criminal punishment by virtue of longstanding patters of limited responses to child labor practices rather than more effective law enforcement action.

Child Soldiers

Child soldiering can be a manifestation of human trafficking where it involves the unlawful recruitment or use of children—through force, fraud, or coercion—as combatants, or for labor or sexual exploitation by armed forces. Perpetrators may be government forces, paramilitary organizations, or rebel groups. Many children are forcibly abducted to be used as combatants. Others are made unlawfully to work as porters, cooks, guards, servants, messengers, or spies. Young girls can be forced to marry or have sex with male combatants. Both male and female child soldiers are often sexually abused and are at high risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases.

Child Sex Trafficking

According to UNICEF, as many as two million children are subjected to prostitution in the global commercial sex trade. International covenants and protocols obligate criminalization of the commercial sexual exploitation of children. The use of children in the commercial sex trade is prohibited under both U.S. law and the Palermo Protocol as well as by legislation in countries around the world. There can be no exceptions and no cultural or socioeconomic rationalizations preventing the rescue of children from sexual servitude. Sex trafficking has devastating consequences for minors, including long-lasting physical and psychological trauma, disease (including HIV/AIDS), drug addiction, unintended pregnancy, malnutrition, social ostracism, and death.

Modern Slavery Statistics

Modern Slavery Statistics

Today, most people usually think of slavery in terms of history classes they have taken, or movies they have seen. The fact is, modern slavery is just as real, just as brutal, and just as inhuman as any history book. Modern slavery controls, and in some cases claims, the lives of millions of people across the globe. To give you an idea of what exactly modern slavery looks like, we’ve put together this page, culling statistics from multiple sources to give you the best picture possible. We want to present you with modern slavery facts, so that you know exactly what it is we are trying to fight:

    • Source: ILO, A global alliance against forced labor: 2005.
The following statistics are from the UN GIFT (Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking):
  • The Victims
    • The majority of trafficking victims are between 18 and 24 years of age
    • An estimated 1.2 million children are trafficked each year
    • 95% of victims experienced physical or sexual violence during trafficking (based on data from selected European countries)
    • 43% of victims are used for forced commercial sexual exploitation, of whom 98 per cent are women and girls
    • 32% of victims are used for forced economic exploitation, of whom 56 per cent are women and girls
    • Many trafficking victims have at least middle-level education
  • The Traffickers
    • 52% of those recruiting victims are men, 42% are women and 6% are both men and women
    • In 54% of cases the recruiter was a stranger to the victim, 46% of cases the recruiter was known to victim
    • The majority of suspects involved in the trafficking process are nationals of the country where the trafficking process is occurring
  • The Profits
    • Estimated global annual profits made from the exploitation of all trafficked forced labour are US$ 31.6 billion
    • Of this:
      • US$ 15.5 billion – 49% – is generated in industrialized economies
      • US$ 9.7 billion – 30.6% is generated in Asia and the Pacific
      • US$ 1.3 billion – 4.1% is generated in Latin America and the Caribbean
      • US$ 1.6 billion – 5% is generated in sub-Saharan Africa
      • US$ 1.5 billion – 4.7% is generated in the Middle East and North Africa
  • Prosecutions
    • In 2006 there were only 5,808 prosecutions and 3,160 convictions throughout the world
    • This means that for every 800 people trafficked, only one person was convicted in 2006
The following statistics are gathered from an article in the Christian Science Monitor:
  • Today, every country has a law against slavery
  • Between 14,000 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the US annually
  • In 1850, the cost of a slave (in today’s dollars) was $40,000. In modern slavery, the price of a slave in $30.
  • 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across national borders each year.
  • According to the United Nations, profits from human trafficking rank it among the top three revenue earners for organized crime, after drugs and arms.
A final note on disparity in modern slavery statistics made by The UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Trafficking in Persons: Global Patterns report, April 2006:
“Due to its clandestine nature, accurate statistics on the magnitude of the human trafficking problem at any level are elusive and unreliable. Figures that are available range from the actual number of victims rescued or repatriated to estimates of the total number of trafficked victims in existence. The lack of reliable statistics can be attributed to a number of factors… [One of these problems] is the tendency to, often unknowingly, mix data related to human trafficking, migrant-smuggling and irregular migration, which convolutes the true human trafficking picture. In addition, data is often collected only on cases of trans-border human trafficking and not on internal human trafficking.”

10 Countries where slavery is most prevelant

Please, do NOT spend your money in these areas of the world!


Thomson Reuters Foundation - Some 30 million people worldwide are victims of sex trafficking, debt bondage, forced labor and other forms of modern slavery, a global index on slavery showed on Thursday.
Here are key facts on the 10 countries with the highest prevalence of slavery per head of population, according to the Global Slavery Index 2013 by Walk Free, an Australia-based rights group.
1. MAURITANIA
* Some 151,000 people - or almost 4 percent of the population - are thought to be slaves, according to the index. Estimates by other groups put the prevalence rate at up to 20 percent.
* Most common is chattel slavery, meaning that slave status is passed down through generations.
* Slavery has been outlawed in Mauritania since 1961 and trafficking since 2003. Forced marriage and debt bondage are not criminalized.
2. HAITI
* Haiti has around 209,000 slaves, fueled by high poverty, lack of access to social services and a system of child labor known as "restavek", in which poor children from rural areas are sent to work with families in cities.
* Rights groups say restavek children are often deprived of food, sleep and schooling and are physically, mentally and sexually abused.
* A draft law on human trafficking is now before parliament that would make child trafficking a criminal offense.
3. PAKISTAN
* Some 2.1 million Pakistanis are thought to be enslaved, especially children and bonded laborers.
* The Asian Development Bank estimates that 1.8 million are in bonded labor, though some non-governmental organizations put the number far higher.
* Many Pakistanis migrate to Gulf states, Iran, Turkey, South Africa and elsewhere in search of work, where they fall prey to unscrupulous labor agents who withhold passports and don't pay wages.
4. INDIA
* With an estimated 13.9 million slaves, India is home to almost half the world's slave population.
* Almost all forms of slavery are prevalent, ranging from inter-generational bonded labor to sex trafficking, child labor and forced marriage.
* Experts say India has excellent anti-slavery laws but enforcement is sporadic and inconsistent. It remains one of the few nations not to have ratified the Worst Forms of Child Labor Convention.
5. NEPAL
* An estimated 259,000 Nepalis are enslaved, both inside the country and abroad.
* About 90 percent of the 2.5 million Nepalis working abroad are undocumented, making them vulnerable to forced labor.
* A crippled economy, endemic corruption and institutionalized ethnic and gender discrimination have created conditions for slavery to thrive since the end of Nepal's decade-long civil war in 2006.
6. MOLDOVA

Socialism does NOT work!! Wake up America!!!






Socialism Does NOT Work!


  1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

  2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

  3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

  4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!.

  5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

A Military Coup Against Obama Is Inevitable

A Military Coup Against Obama Is Inevitable

Friday, January 3, 2014 12:57
Taken from: (Before It's News)
 


Ex-CIA deep cover agent, Dr. Jim Garrow has stated that a military coup against Obama is inevitable. Despite Garrow’s pronouncement, the facts speak for themselves. Even if the military was not loyal to the American people and could care less about the preservation of the Constitution, the military must fight back if for no other reason than simple self-preservation.
As a nation, we can afford bouts of economic downturns, civil strife and even some degree of political mistrust of our leaders. A nation can take definitive steps to recover these maladies. However, the one thing that America cannot tolerate is the compromising of our military, and since Obama has been president, the effectiveness of our military has been greatly compromised as witnessed by the firing of 200+ command level officers.

A Crisis of Military Leadership

The number of generals either drummed out of the service or forced into early retirement since Obama took office is growing by the month. Untruthful pretexts have been manufactured by the Obama administration to usher out many of our top military commanders. Many of these generals were among our most effective and experienced military leaders. Almost all of these generals are being replaced by men with less military experience and this fact alone leads to a less effective military.
This unprecedented parade of musical chairs, being played out against our military leaders, began when Obama demanded the resignation of General McKiernan. This marked the first time, since the time of the Korean War when General Douglas MacArthur was fired by President Truman in a disagreement over strategy, that a battlefield general was fired by a president. The strategy backfired in Korea and it backfired in Afghanistan as McKiernan was deemed to be to old school to suit Obama. He was old school to Obama because he wanted to kill the enemy while minimizing American losses. Obama wanted to adopt a policy which allowed the enemy to open fire first which, before Americans could return fire. This has surely caused the casualty rate to rise.
After he was fired, McKiernan challenged Obama’s impotent leadership by stating that “I don’t understand ever putting your men and women in harm’s way, without their having the full ability to protect themselves. That also means operating on actionable intelligence to defeat insurgents, and protect your forces.That’s how you keep your soldiers alive.” Obama apparently does not care how many soldiers get to come back home to their families.
Following McKiernan, Obama appointed Stanley McChrystal. But very soon, the new general grew weary of forcing his troops to accept fire before shooting back for fear of offending the Afghans. McChrystal later claimed that he had presented a plan to Obama for defeating the Afghan resistance, but Obama continued to promote rules of engagement which served to make the Americans a less effective fighting force. The relationship between McChrystal and Obama became strained and McChrystal was fired over a negative Rolling Stone article, written by Michael Hastings, that revealed that McChrystal had become disgusted with Obama. Petraeus replaced McChrystal who was in-turn quickly replaced by General Allen who then became entrapped in the same scandal, and the confirmation of General Dunford had to be rushed through and subsequently completed in record time. Count them, Obama has gone through four generals and is now on his fifth battlefield commander. His firing of two-four star generals is unprecedented in American History. This is what Stalin did when he assumed the dictatorship of Russia and it almost cost the Russians victory in WWII. The war in Afghanistan is lost thanks to Obama.
General Mattis, the Commander of Central Command offended several administration personnel and was fired on the spot. Admiral Gayoutte, the former commander of Carrier Task Force Three, operating in the Gulf, was fired last fall. General Hamm, the former commander of AFRICOM was fired last fall as well. Gayoutte and Hamm both tried to launch a coordinated rescue mission designed to save the life of Ambassador Stevens in Libya. Both leaders were refusing to follow a Presidential order, delivered through Leon Panetta, to stand down with regard to the Stevens affair. Both men were arrested prior to dispatching the rescue troops.
To this point, we may just have a case of gross incompetence. Yet, aren’t we supposed to fighting al-Qaeda? According to our government, did al-Qaeda plan and carry out the attacks of 9/11? Then why are we supporting al-Qaeda in Libya and Syria? Treason of stupidity?
When the leadership of the military is greatly compromised, it cannot help but to weaken the fighting effectiveness of our troops. There is more, but suffice it to say that Obama goes through senior military leaders more times than he changes his underwear.

The Air Force Crisis

Air Force combat pilots are leaving the Air Force at an alarming rate and, as such, this has constituted an emergency. The USAF is now offering bonuses that amount to several hundred thousand dollars in a desperate attempt to retain their services. The pilots cite the low pay (Obama just slashed Congressionally approved pay raises by over half), being overworked and the ability to find more lucrative employment in the private sector.

Obama Repeatedly Demonstrates Disdain for the Military

Obama refuses to salute flag. Obama refuses to salute the American flag.
Following the inauguration, the President , according to Major General Patrick Brady (Ret), is supposed to attend an inaugural balls honoring veterans, including  a special ceremony for Medal of Honor winners. Obama did not attend, thus, making him the only President to snub such an important military event.
And he refuses again! And he refuses again!

Under Obama, women are now being groomed for combat. This will significantly weaken our military as a fighting force. Women do not possess the upper body strength, quickness, or stamina to survive in combat. Rape is at all-time high in the military and nothing is being done about it. The military is not a corporation. The military does not score points for fielding the most fair army, it is kill or be killed. Women’s rights apply in every other sector of American life, except the military. 
...but he will bow to a Saudi Prince Obama may refuse to salute the American Flag, but he will bow to a Saudi King.

Obama Is Attempting to Deindustrialize the US

When Obama was first elected, he attempted to get congress to support his cap and trade legislation which would have reduced individual energy use by an estimated 80%. This would have been national suicide. I almost forgot to mention that Obama and his Senior White House adviser, Valerie Jarrett, helped to found and then fund the Chicago Climate Exchange which was to oversee a 10 trillion dollar per year management of cap and trade activities and policies. Now, Obama is seeking to bypass Congress and have the EPA impose carbon emission regulations. This is unconstitutional and it will effectively nationalize the American energy industry and place it under the control of Obama. The net effect, is that America is being deindustrialized through these cap and trade policies.
America is being crushed by high energy rates, but Obama uses every regulatory power to stop drilling for oil and natural gas, denies permits for construction of nuclear power plants, and discourages the use of coal, oil shale and tar sands, where our reserves dwarf those of Saudi Arabia, and he killed the Keystone Pipeline. This cannot be explained away solely based on environmental concerns, because Obama applauds and promises to financially support Brazilian deep-water oil drilling.

The Ponzi Scheme Called Obamacare

Today, businesses are afraid to hire new employees because the government has captured the health care system on behalf of Big Pharma and the managed health care industry and nobody knows what is going to happen. Obamacare has unleashed massive new taxes and regulations, all of which are economy killers. Along with the death panel policies which are beginning to come to light, every American should look under their collective beds before going to bed.

The Most Unconstitutional President in History

1obama-and-the-consitutionBy signing the NDAA into law, he made the US government one of the most lawless nations on the face of the earth. Under the NDAA, an American citizen can be snatched off of the street, without due process (violation of the 5th Amendment).  Attorney General Eric Holder has asserted the right for Obama to murder US citizens under the NDAA.
Under Executive Order 13603, Obama can seize every resource, including all food and water supplies, both public and private, in the country and he can also conscript its citizens for any purpose.
The Most Divisive President In American History
Can there be any question that Obama is intentionally dividing Americans on the basis of race, economic class, gender, sexual orientation and, sometimes, religion. The fact that he ordered the Department of Justice to open an investigation into the Trayvon Martin case only inflamed the highly volatile case. This was, and is, a local law enforcement issue.
Obama’s policies are forcing Christians from the military in record numbers. Obama is forcing the military to accept open homosexuality in the military, while punishing soldiers for having open heterosexual relationships. As one general told me, the politically correct police are patrolling the halls of the Pentagon. Many veterans have told me that Obama’s new military provides benefits to people of Islamic faith not afforded to Christians. Along these lines, Obama cancelled the National Day of Prayer, while instituting the Muslim Day of Prayer. This is hardly equitable. 
Prior to running for president, it has been widely reported that Barack and Michelle routinely attended religious services where the volatile and crude, as well as Un-American rhetoric was commonly preached from the pulpit of Jeremiah Wright. 

The Destroyer of the Economy

obama resistance is futileObama still blames Bush for the economy, but he claims the country is in the midst of an economic recovery. The recovery is working so well, that the number welfare recipients outnumbers the number of fulltime workers (101 million to 97 million). New job creation is at a standstill, energy prices are unrelenting and college loans administered by this President are astronomical. Obama has increased the national debt faster than the last five presidents combined. Does any of this sound like recovery to you?

There Is No End in Sight for Obama’s Destructive Policies

What did Michelle Obama mean when she said she’d never been proud of America in her adult life before her husband’s election to the highest office in the land? Why is Obama so insistent about the United States deferring to international bodies in the conduct of its foreign affairs? Why is he so determined that our nuclear and conventional forces and our military space program as well as our missile defenses be scaled down? He is taking a page right out of Benedict Arnold’s book of treason when he tried to give away the vital fort of West Point to the British.

Conclusion

Really? Really?

One does not have to be a conspiracy theorist to recognize the damage Obama is doing to the country and I haven’t even touched on his administrations lawlessness and his intent on signing the UN Small Arms Treaty Ban.
Is he a traitor or just plain stupid? I would say he’s both. However, treason trumps stupidity and this President needs to be impeached and tried for treason. And since Congress is bought and paid for, it is up to the military.
