Neil S. Rodgers, a former D.C. government official, was sentenced Tuesday for his role in the misappropriation of $110,000 earmarked for D.C.’s Children at Risk and Drug Prevention Fund to cover a deficit for the 51st State Inaugural Ball for President Obama’s inauguration in 2009. Rodgers, found guilty of fraud in March, was sentenced to 36 days (served on weekends) plus two years of probation. Rodgers must also repay the entire $110,000 as restitution for his crime. In 2008, as arrangements were underway for inauguration celebrations, the Washington City Paper reported on former council member Harry Thomas Jr.’s early plans for the 51st State Inaugural Ball, noting that “there would have to be a plan to raise funds for the event, and security and cleanup concerns would also have to dealt with. Thomas says all that will be taken care of; he says he plans to seek private donations to cover the difference between the event’s cost and the revenues raised by the $51 ticket cost.” Donations, however, came up short. Justice Department officials described Rodgers’s role in the misappropriation scheme in a Tuesday press release:
I would like to comment on the South Carolina church shooter. Why is it that all of these wacko mass murderers have been prescribed the same drugs for polar disorders? It seems to me that the medical profession needs to address this problem and stop this insanity, allowing these people to roam the streets. If the condition cannot be corrected without the use of these drugs then it might serve society better if they were incarcerated in an institution that can deal with the problem. I really think that the drugs are more of the problem than the mental condition of the shooters before they acquired their prescriptions. We are quick to focus on guns as being evil yet many of us carry guns and never carry out such heinous acts, but the one thing that stays a constant is the taking of these mood altering medications.
Although worldwide peace levels were stable this year, the division between countries enjoying peace and those afflicted by conflict has increased, according to a report. The annual Global Peace Index report produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace measures the state of peace in 162 countries by using 23 indicators that gauge the absence of violence or the fear of violence. “The world is less peaceful today than it was in 2008,” according to the report. “The indicators that have deteriorated the most are the number of refugees and [internally displaced persons], the number of deaths from internal conflict and the impact of terrorism.”
I know what we should do, we should do out another Nobel Peace Prize to some liberal who loves everyone.
Pierre Krahenbuhl, Commissioner-General of UNRWA, the UN body tasked with aiding “Palestinian refugees,” admitted on Wednesday that Hamas terrorists hid weapons at UNRWA facilities during their terror war against Israel last summer. “We were the ones who found the weapons caches in our facilities during inspections,” Krahenbuhl told Yedioth Aharonoth in an interview. “The reason that the whole world knew about it is that we told them.” Krahenbuhl’s reference is to at least three separate occasions in which rockets were found at UNRWA facilities. After the first finding of rockets at an UNRWA school, UNRWA workers reportedly called Hamas to come remove them. Likewise, a booby-trapped UNRWA clinic was detonated, killing three IDF soldiers. Aside from the massive amounts of explosives hidden in the walls of the clinic, it was revealed that it stood on top of dozens of terror tunnels, showing how UNRWA is closely embedded with Hamas.
There’s a leak today concerning the statement coming from the Vatican. The Pope is going to release a teaching, from his own belief, that is not reportedly coming from God. The Pope apparently is going to side with those who preach global warming, and those that blame warming on man and his quest to better himself. He’s going to tell us that the rich nations should use less energy and at the same time spend more money supporting poor nations. This of course is a continuation of his assault on capitalism and is embracement of socialism. Apparently the Pope has bought into this social justice theology. I’m sure that somewhere during his studies the Pope has read that believers should not yoke themselves to unbelievers, and it is explained to us that darkness and light cannot exist together. The scientist that the Pope is embracing in this global warming scam, are not part of the believers that he represents. The scientist are the same scientist that have taken God out of the schools, and teach our children that the world came from evolution not from creation. This is not the first time the Pope has yoked himself to unbelievers, he has done with Muslims and homosexuals in an attempt to gain their favor. I hope that the pope’s followers understand this direction that they are being led is not something that has been given to them from the true Holy Father our Lord and God. And just to emphasize that the Pope is wrong there is just then they release of a study which shows that the earth has actually been cooling over the last 10 years. Which makes you question what exactly is the agenda of this man?

Data from America’s most advanced climate monitoring system shows the U.S. has undergone a cooling trend over the last decade, despite recent claims by government scientists that warming has accelerated worldwide during that time. The U.S. Climate Reference Network was developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to provide “high-quality” climate data. The network consists of 114 stations across the U.S. in areas NOAA expects no development for the next 50 to 100 years. The climate stations use three independent measurements of temperature and precipitation to provide “continuity of record and maintenance of well-calibrated and highly accurate observations,” NOAA states on its website. “The stations are placed in pristine environments expected to be free of development for many decades.” In essence, NOAA chose locations so they don’t need to be adjusted for “biases” in the temperature record.
Establishment Republicans desperately trying to secure the passage of Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), which would give President Obama fast-track authority to secure congressional approval of at least three secretive trade deals, are now willing to increase taxes on small businesses in a way that would violate a pledge almost every Republican Congressman has taken when elected into office.

Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio said Sunday Democrats are mostly interested in immigration reform because the newly legalized residents will eventually obtain voting rights and will vote for Democrats.“That’s common sense,” said Arpaio. “I don’t think that’s something that nobody knows. You make them here legally so they can vote.”
