Florida State Senator Uses Political Power to get Electric Power Restored to Mother After Irma

This is a story of power, restoring power, and having the audacity, and power, to flaunt your abuse of power while facing no real consequences for your actions. This is the story of American politics, Florida style. After Hurricane Irma left the state of Florida, 12+ million Floridians found themselves without power. Some of the people without power happened to include the mother and sister of a powerful State Senator in Florida, Daphne Campbell, D-North Miami Beach. What do you do when your kin doesn’t have power? What do you do when you find yourself with a different kind of power, mainly political power? You do what it appears Daphne Campbell did, you use that power to turn on the power for your mother and sister. A website named Rise News originally broke the story of text messages being sent from the Florida State Senator to John H. Holley, the Vice President of Florida Power & Light. As it so happens, the Senator from North Miami Beach sits on the Committee on Communications, Energy, and Public Utilities. Needless to say, this would be a committee of significant interest to Florida Power & Light. The text messages were sent starting Monday, September 12th, just a day after the storm had moved through the state, and ended Tuesday, September 13th. Here is the transcript from the text shared via images originally...

Game of Budgets, A Tale of the PA Coercive Enterprise

As Pennsylvania’s governing bodies, the executive and legislative branches, continue to find themselves at an impasse regarding the budget for 2017, Governor Tom Wolf is letting the public know that some tough decisions had to be made as a result. The Governor has announced that he was “forced” to withhold a little under $1.2 billion in payments to Medicaid program providers. This translates to mean the state is withholding payment for services rendered by hospitals, doctors, medical personnel. The move is sure to encourage even more healthcare providers who currently accept Medicaid to potentially decide to decline to continue to do so. Even if the impasse is broken, and the bills are eventually paid, the reality of being in the first round of providers the state will decline to pay for services already rendered might give more healthcare providers greater incentive to cut their potential losses while they can. The governor’s office has stated that payment to these providers could be delayed “for at least a week,” though no maximum time for the delay was given. Looming next week is a bill in the amount of $581 million that is set to pay “pensions obligations” for public school teachers and employees. What that translates to is this, the state may have to defer payment to retired teachers and retired employees who received pension benefits that far exceed those experienced,...

Public Schools to Create Patriotic World Citizens

Two days into the start of my daughter’s 7th grade school year, she brought home a document that triggered a bit of an apoplectic, expletive-laden meltdown for me, and it was all centered around one word, Patriotism. The document was a form the school wanted me to sign acknowledging my receipt of something called the “Framework for Citizenship- The Student Code of Conduct.” This document, to me, read like a badly written Sci Fi novel, only the Fi was missing, as in, this was a non-fiction declaration. There were a few key parts of the document here, which I’ll cover in this article, but I more thoroughly break down the document in the video below: The document seemed, for the most part, to be quite innocuous but for a few key phrases that got my attention almost immediately. The first such phrase comes in the first paragraph of the document, where the school district explained they were striving to “promote good citizens.” Yes, schools have for a while entered into the business of making “good citizens” so that, while troubling to me, merely brought a bit of pink to my otherwise sun-deprived pallor. I kept reading, and as I read I quickly came upon another phrase that converted my bit of pink to a persistent flush of gentle red. The document explained that the Framework for Citizenship was based...

US Virgin Islands Governor Orders Gun Confiscation Ahead of Hurricane Irma

The Governor of the US Virgin Islands, Kenneth E. Mapp, just announced that he is authorizing the Virgin Islands National Guard to seize weapons and ammunition from citizens ahead of the approaching major storm, Hurricane Irma, which is now a Category 5 Hurricane.  The Hurricane is expected to reach the Virgin Islands Wednesday morning. The Governor released an official State of Emergency declaration in which he said, ” In accordance with Title 23 Section 1522, Virgin Islands Code, The Adjutant General is authorized and directed to seize arms, ammunition, explosives, incendiary material and any other property that may be required by the military forces for the performance of this emergency mission, in accordance with the Rules of Force promulgated by the Virgin Islands National Guard and approved by the Virgin Islands Department of Justice. ” Remember all those reports of national guardsmen going around and collecting guns from people after Hurricane Katrina?  If you check on Snopes, that oh so reliable progressive-run fact-check site (and I use the term fact-check loosely), you’ll be led to believe those reports are bogus.  After this recent Hurricane that hit the Houston area and parts of Louisiana, there are also reports of gun confiscation occurring, as well as calls by police departments for people to turn in their long guns. Well, now you don’t have to take rumor’s word for it, the Governor of...

Freedom Through a Lifestyle Business – Liberty Under Attack

http://media.blubrry.com/liberty_under_attack_radio/s/www.libertyunderattack.com/wp-content/uploads/Documents/LUA170903final.mp3 The once touted “job security” within the statist-servile society is become less and less stable as time goes on. With most folks being employed by major corporations and the seemingly endless acquisitions and mergers, more people are finding themselves laid off, bringing their financial situation into an uncertain state. But, with that uncertainty comes new opportunities–the opportunity discussed today is building your own lifestyle business. A lifestyle business can provide you with the financial income you need and more, in addition to the freedom from the grueling 9-5 jobs. My guest for today, Kevin Geary, has built one...
