Mystery: Posters In NYC, D.C. Call Clintons ‘America’s Lannisters’

 

 

 

” A new Clinton mystery has hit New York City and Washington, D.C. with the surprise display of posters declaring the Clintons as “America’s Most Dangerous Family” and “America’s Lannisters.”

  Pulled by advertising bikes over the weekend, the posters use themes from TV’s “Game of Thrones” and “House of Cards” in portraying BillHillary and Chelsea Clinton — and advisor James Carville — as evil, though they don’t indicate exactly what the advertising is for.

  One of the ad posters appears similar to the style of the hit Netflix series, “House of Cards.” The poster is in black and white and shows Bill and Hillary under an upside down U.S. flag, the sign of distress. That poster reads, “America’s Most Dangerous Family.” “

Sand-Based Lithium Ion Batteries That Outperform Standard By Three Times

 

 

 

 

 

” Researchers at the University of California, Riverside’s Bourns College of Engineering have created a lithium ion battery that outperforms the current industry standard by three times. The key material: sand. Yes, sand.

” This is the holy grail – a low cost, non-toxic, environmentally friendly way to produce high performance  anodes,” said Zachary Favors, a graduate student working with Cengiz and Mihri Ozkan, both engineering professors at UC Riverside.

  The idea came to Favors six months ago. He was relaxing on the beach after surfing in San Clemente, Calif. when he picked up some sand, took a close look at it and saw it was made up primarily of quartz, or . “

Someone Tried To Shame Her Body With Graffiti, But This Teen Took An Awesome Photo Instead

 

 

 

” When 14-year-old Carleigh O’Connell heard that a gibe about her body had been spray-painted on a cement block for her whole town to see, she responded in the unlikeliest, but most awesome of ways: She snapped a photo while posing proudly with the graffiti.

  She then shared the image on social media and told her mom, Daryl, to do the same.

  She wanted the image to go viral. She wanted to turn the story around.

” [Carleigh] decided that she was going to be stronger than hurtful words on the concrete and that she was going to be proud of her figure,” the teen’s mom wrote in a Sunday Facebook post. “She also told me that she feels complete sympathy for the teenagers across the country who face this everyday. She understands and wants all of them to find strength inside to rise above the nastiness and be empowered by who you are, how you are made and what is in your heart.” “

Feds Booed In California City After Standoff On Illegals

 

 

 

 

 

 

” An overflow crowd in a Southern California community where protesters turned back Homeland Security busloads of immigrants gave a harsh reception to federal officials behind the decision to bring them to Murrieta in the first place.

  Local politicians calling for secure borders proved far more popular with the crowd Wednesday night.

” Send them back! Send the back!” the special-meeting crowd chanted, shouting down Chief Border Patrol Agent Paul Beeson after he took responsibility for transferring the Central American children and families to Murrieta from Texas, where the numbers are too much for facilities to handle.

  On Tuesday, the buses were rerouted an hour south to San Diego after they were met with flag-waving protesters in Murrieta.

  The Wednesday night crowd, gathered at a high school auditorium that seats 750 in the desert city of 100,000 people, groaned when Beeson said four of the immigrants had to be hospitalized, two with scabies and two with fevers.

  And Beeson conceded that he did not know where Tuesday’s immigrants nor several more waves slated to arrive from Texas in coming days will end up.”

 

 

   Here’s an idea how we get can get the illegals out of our country: All we need to do is put a few guns on the buses and have them accidentally cross the Mexican border . That way the Mexican government can imprison them indefinitely just as they have done to our Marine , Andrew Tahmooressi .

A Most Pertinent Question From Erich Bridges At The Baptist Press

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” If you want to stand in the room where America as an idea was conceived, visit Montpelier, where James Madison grew up, lived most of his life and died.

  Montpelier is a beautiful place, nestled in the foothills of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. On clear days, you can see the peaks rising in the distance through the second-floor window in the library of the restored plantation house. I stood in that spot recently and trembled at the magnitude of what took place there, in the mind of one man. “

 

 

 

 

 

” You can imagine Madison looking out that very window for inspiration during the months he spent alone there before the historic summer of 1787, poring over his own books and the many volumes of history, philosophy and politics sent to him by his friend and political ally Thomas Jefferson. When he emerged from his self-imposed intellectual retreat, Madison carried the ideas that would form the basis of the U.S. Constitution and its first 10 amendments, the Bill of Rights

  Without those founding documents, our nation — which was then a shaky confederation of former colonies on the verge of squandering their hard-won independence from England — would not exist. And you would not enjoy the right to speak, worship, vote and assemble with others as you please. Neither would untold millions of other people across the world, freed from their chains by the ideas Madison not only forged but ceaselessly labored for, wrote about and campaigned to see ratified.

  To be sure, the encouragement of Madison’s great mentor Jefferson (who also wrote a little something called the Declaration of Independence) was crucial. So was the instant credibility George Washington brought when Madison persuaded the beloved revolutionary general to attend the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787. Many others contributed to the basic principles that went into the Constitution, both during Madison’s formative years in the Virginia legislature and during the long, hot summer of the convention itself, where he spoke more than 200 times. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” But without Madison in his finest hour, where would we be today?

” As a framer and defender of the Constitution he had no peer,” historian Garry Wills wrote. “No man could do everything for the country — not even Washington. Madison did more than most, and did some things better than any. That was quite enough.”

  He would go on to serve two terms as president, lead the young country through the War of 1812 and live until age 85, the last of the Founding Fathers to pass off the scene. Yet in that pivotal year of 1787, James Madison was 36 years old. And he was far younger when he began grappling with the ideas that would make him the “Father of the Constitution.”

  I highlight Madison’s youth at the time in order to pose a question: Where are the Madisons of today? More specifically, where are the spiritual Madisons?”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” We keep hearing that the Millennials, born after 1980, are leaving churches in droves (or never joining in the first place), that they are wary of making commitments to faith communities, government, school, marriage or any other institution. They like having unlimited options, we’re told, and prefer digital social networks to joining or forming the groups that traditionally have held society together. 

  The Pew Research Center supplied more confirmation of those attitudes in its study released March 7, “Millennials in Adulthood: Detached from Institutions, Networked with Friends.”

” The Millennial generation is forging a distinctive path into adulthood,” the study reported. “Now ranging in age from 18 to 33, they are relatively unattached to organized politics and religion, linked by social media, burdened by debt, distrustful of people, in no rush to marry — and optimistic about the future. … [H]alf of Millennials now describe themselves as political independents and about three in 10 say they are not affiliated with any religion.”

  Pew said Millennials are “at or near the highest levels of political and religious disaffiliation recorded for any generation in the quarter-century [it] has been polling on these topics.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

” You have to give Millennials credit for being optimistic about the future, given the crummy economic and career prospects they’ve been handed. Maybe that’s the natural energy and hope of youth. The grim economic outlook of recent years, not to mention massive student debt, also explains part of their reluctance to get married and enter into other major social or financial commitments. The issue of trusting others, however, is revealing.

” Millennials have emerged into adulthood with low levels of social trust,” Pew reported. “In response to a longstanding social science survey question, ‘Generally speaking, would you say that most people can be trusted or that you can’t be too careful in dealing with people?’ just 19 percent of Millennials say most people can be trusted, compared with 31 percent of Gen Xers [born from 1965 to 1980], 37 percent of [the Silent Generation, born from 1928 to 1945] and 40 percent of Boomers [born from 1946 to 1964].”

  People tend not to interact with those they don’t trust — and definitely won’t willingly work with them, join churches or other voluntary organizations with them, or cooperate with them to keep civil society functioning. 

  Perhaps you’re a Millennial believer in Christ, but you’ve decided to take a pass on being part of a local church. It’s an outmoded institution encrusted with irrelevant traditions, you say. You’re “spiritual but not religious,” so you intend to worship on your own or with a few close friends. You plan to do ministry and missions that way, too, rather than bothering with bulky religious organizations that might waste your time and money. 

  It’s your choice. But consider this: What if James Madison had decided to go it alone after the American Revolution? He could have stayed at Montpelier and enjoyed his big Virginia plantation — and let others worry about a fledgling nation on the edge of collapse. Instead, he rolled up his sleeves and plunged into the long, exhausting task of dialogue, debate, compromise and coalition-building that went into creating the United States of America out of the competing interests of 13 ornery colonies.

  The church, a far older institution than the United States, is also the body of Christ. Christ commands that we not only worship, serve and proclaim the Gospel alongside other sinners saved by grace, but that we love them.

  In order to form a more perfect union, we must commit ourselves to renewing the imperfect one we have. We need you to be a part of it.”

It Looks Like Raging Hockey Fans Destroyed An LAPD Drone Last Night

 

 

 

” Multiple videos have been posted online showing what uploaders described as hockey fans destroying a Los Angeles Police Department drone outside the Staples Center Friday night after the LA Kings won the NHL’s Stanley Cup. 

  Riot police were called in to break up what the LA Times described as a “melee” outside the arena following the King’s victory over the New York Rangers.

  In one clip posted online, a drone can be seen hovering over the crowd of hockey fans before it was knocked out of the sky by people throwing shoes and clothing:”

 

 

 

   This may or may not have been a police drone . There is every possibility that the drone was a private one , perhaps owned by a blogger or amateur reporter just seeking unique video footage . If so we are sorry to see the destruction of private property . However , if it was a police drone then all we can say is congratulations … good shooting .

Marine Sings 4th Part Of Star Spangled Banner

 

 

 

The Star Spangled Banner Lyrics

 

” Oh, say, can you see? By the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming;
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air.
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave?
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

  On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In fully glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

  And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution!
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

  Oh, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

State Police Investigator Rescues Man From Car That Crashed Into Gas Pump

 

 

 

” Despite suffering injuries himself, Senior Investigator John Vescio was able to crawl out from under a knocked over gas pump and rescue the driver who crashed into the pump.

  Below is a press release from state police describing the incident:

 ” On June 3, 2014 at approximately 11:00 AM, Senior Investigator John A. Vescio of Troop NYC was fueling his State Police vehicle on the southbound side of the Mobil station on the Hutchinson River Parkway in White Plains, NY. 
 
  As he was outside his vehicle he heard a car entering the service area at a high rate of speed.  Sr. Inv. Vescio turned just as a Toyota Camry slammed into an Acura on the opposite side of the pump, and then into the pump itself. The pump housing fell on top of the Senior Investigator, who was able to crawl out from under the pump just as the front of the Toyota and the pump caught fire. 
 
  Injured himself, he immediately went over to the 69-year-old operator of the Toyota, who was incoherent, and pulled him out of the vehicle to safety.  Indications were that the man was having a possible diabetic emergency prior to the collision. 
 
  Sr. Inv. Vescio directed others away from the fire and asked a bystander to help in moving the man further away from the scene.
 
  Knowing that he had ammunition in the trunk, Senior Investigator Vescio directed people to get back and asked a bystander to assist in moving the man further away from the scene. Popping noises were heard in the area of the vehicles, but Troop NYC Captain Dominick L. Chiumento advised that the Senior Investigator’s issued weapon and all ammunition was accounted for with none being compromised. The State Police vehicle and equipment in the trunk was heavily damaged in the fire.
 
  Witnesses described the professionalism and focus of Senior Investigator Vescio during the incident. Captain Dominick L. Chiumento, who was at the scene, said, “Despite Senior Investigator Vescio’s own injuries, he remained focused and committed to saving the life of the operator of that Toyota.  If not for his swift response, the situation could have turned much worse.”

Toyota To Start Producing Fuel Cell Vehicles In December

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Toyota’s hydrogen fuel cell vehicle will go into production ahead of schedule, with production planned for mid-December 2014.

  Sales will also begin “by the end of the year” reports Japan Times (via Autoblog), ahead of Toyota’s original on-sale date some time in 2015.

  No reason has been given for bringing the car forward, but it’s safe to assume Toyota’s development and testing is going smoothly so far – unusual in the alternative fuel vehicle market.

  Toyota first revealed its fuel-cell vehicle as the FCV-R concept in 2012. The concept was subsequently updated in 2013, and the car was revealed in testing camouflage earlier on this year.”

Strangers Beat Up Sex Offender Who Tried To Kidnap 6-Year-Old Girl At A Park

 

 

 

Child Molester Beaten

 

 

 

” Sexual deviants may want to think twice before doing anything suspicious at Benefit Park in Seattle. Jesse Brisbin, who is 30 and has been convicted twice of molesting children, recently got himself into A LOT of hot water — with complete strangers — after he tried to kidnap a 6-year-old girl who was playing at the park with her siblings and father. Brisbin approached the child and asked her to leave with him. The smart cookie told him ‘no,’ and even though she resisted, he reportedly grabbed her by the hand and tried to drag her out of the crowded park.

  The girl was able to break free from his hold and ran back to her family. And don’t worry — Brisbin didn’t get away with what he did — not by a long shot. Instead, the girl’s father, along with 20 or so total strangers, chased the jerk down, tackled him to the ground, and beat him up.”
