Cherie DeVille to run for US President in 2020

Los Angeles, CA, Sep-7-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Sporting a doctorate on her resume, a well-spoken, opinionated candidate has emerged in the 2020 run for president. With Donald Trump having opened the door to public figures attaining the highest office, DeVille has announced her intention to run for President. She’s enlisted Coolio to serve as Vice-President due to his rise from poverty to a gangster’s paradise, and having toured every state in this land, and dozens of countries throughout the world speaking to people along the way – together they know how to fix America.

DeVille announces her presidential bid during a 7+ minute press conference which introduces her team as she recounts her views for change. Coolio is introduced as the presidential hopeful’s running mate and is a strong proponent for universal healthcare, hoping to roll out CoolioCare to the masses.
Chere DeVille speaks eloquently on the broken promises of the current administration and goes so far as to touch on the travel ban, healthcare as well as the disastrous situation that Trump has left the world in with the United State’s withdrawal from the Paris Accord.

International models @Khloe and @MissKennedyS bring the millennial vote along with substantial experience from travelling the world and speaking to the people. Summers, is also a third year med student who has very real concepts on how to improve the healthcare system and will work closely with the Vice President on CoolioCare. Canadian born Khloe Terae hopes to cozy up with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in her role as head of Foreign Relations.

Former WWE legend Virgil is the man behind the woman. The former bodyguard for the Million Dollar Man will reprise his role on a much grander scale. Virgil has been pegged with being the personal bodyguard for the Presidential hopeful, along with being head of security. Having broken breadsticks at Olive Garden with Donald Trump, Virgil has keen insight in the current administration, and can help transition when Cherie DeVille captures the White House.

New York’s Health Agency (NYSDOH) Cited in Iraq War’s Blowback

New York, NY, 2016-Dec-31 — /EPR GOVERNMENT NEWS/ — As the Iraq War’s official end on December 18, 2011 marks its fifth anniversary, many questions remain on its fallouts. New York’s French-American community is one of them, as it remembers its blacklisting when France opted out of attacking Iraq.

Choosing diplomatic pressure rather than “shock and awe” ignited fury for many in New York. The call for anti-French boycotts resonated in tabloids as pictures of New Yorkers spilling wines in gutters vied with accusations of an ally’s betrayal and cowardice. Information can be found by googling “New York’s French boycotts and Iraq,” and “Freedom fries.”

How effective were the boycotts? “Very much so, even devastating,” says French consulate’s official physician and mental health coordinator at the time, Gérard Sunnen, MD, “the French-American community of New York was stunned by their virulence. Why, many wondered, did they materialize only in New York, in striking contrast to the rest of the country?”

“Targeted were all manner of French-American businesses, from Air France to bakeries, as rosters of marked companies circulated widely. Earliest felled were restaurants, whose sales plummeted by as much as half. Like dominoes, they closed their doors, dismissing their workers. Called by many the “consulate’s darkest hour,” it went on for weeks, interminable months, and still resonates today.”

“As layoffs mounted,” Dr. Sunnen added, “so did their mental health consequences, from all manner of stress reactions to self-destructive depressions. And workers suddenly out of work could not find employment because no one would take them. The consulate’s social services department work load soared to levels never attained before.”

Faced with this onslaught, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) was repeatedly contacted to lend the community its medical and mental health assistance. In addition, New York state and city top officials were insistently asked to add their voice to call off the boycotts. All appeals remained unanswered and, for reasons of non-assistance and abandonment of responsibility, this matter was eventually reported and filed in New York and Federal courts.

Dr. Sunnen, who also cites his experience as a Vietnam-era U.S. veteran, concludes, “history needs constant reckoning, otherwise it can remain a fable. These events are now brought to light so that long-term allies can better understand the meaning of their relationship.”

Est d’Ucraina: Compagnia europea Flame SA paga a gli guerriglieri

KIEV, 08-Nov-2016 — /EPR GOVERNMENT NEWS/ — “Giornalisti contro la corruzzione e illegittimità” – un gruppo di giornalisti-investigatori Ucraini – ha comunicato dei documenti compromettenti che si sono trovati a loro disposizione e confermano la collaborazione della compagnia europea Flame SA con La Repubblica Popolare di Donetsk (RPD) – organizzazione a riconoscimento limitato che ha preso la territoria al Est d’Ucraina sotto suo controllo.

Il documento sopracennato è un contratto a consegna di 72 000 tonnellate di carbone tra Flame SA e la miniera “Jdanivska” che si trova nel territorio non controllato al Est d’Ucraina. Questo territorio, anche come tutte le imprese localizzate, sono conrollati dai ribelli filorussi della stessa RPD. Intanto, tali relazioni commerciali devono essere regolati proprio dalla legislazione Ucraina: l’impresa, anche stando al territorio non controllato, deve pagare le tasse al bilancio statale, poiché è registrata al territorio d’Ucraina e si trova li stesso.
Però, dopo l’inizio di azioni militari nel 2014, molte compagnie della regione hanno dichiarato della nuova registrazione, iniziando a pagare le tasse al bilancio della autodichiarata RPD.

Praticamente, questo è il diritto finanziameno degli guerriglieri. In mezzo a tali “sponsor” – la sopracennata miniera “Jdanivska” che a sua volta riceveva i soldi dalla europea Flame SA.

A quale base la Flame SA acquistava il carbone proprio in questa miniera e perché non ha trovato una fonte alternativa per le consegne di questa materia prima – resta l’incognita. I rappresentanti della compagnia non hanno risposto ne a una domanda dei giornalisti ucraini.

Tra le altre cose, il sito web della Flame SA è inaccessibile, per questo non risulta possibile avere dei commeti ufficiali della compagnia su quest’affare.

Il Servizio di Sicurezza d’Ucraina (SSU) si è già interessato del fatto del presente contratto – per adesso solo nella parte di rinvio a giudizio penale del direttore della miniera “Jdanivska”, il signore Ruslan Dubovskiy. È accusato di esecuzione delle operazioni illegali d’esportazione con Flame SA e una serie di altre compagnie allo scopo di “fininziamento del terrorismo” (clausola 258-5, parte 1 del Codice Criminale d’Ucraina). Al presente, l’indagine del SSU su quest’affare continua.

Ma non è l’unico “buco” della compagnia Flame SA. Secondo i dati dei giornalisti ucraini, la compagnia in violazione delle sanzioni internazionali ha dei rapporti commerciali con un’altra miniera – “Zarechnaya”, che si trova nella Federazione Russa. Questa miniera è l’attivo della compagnia “Uralvagonzavod” che a sua volta sta nella lista delle compagnie sottomesse alle sanzioni degli Stati Uniti e Unione Europea.

Flame SA e le sue filiali F-Chem SA e Brando International sono situati allo stesso indirizzo in Svizzera. L’attività principale della compagnia è la ricerca e consegna del carbone energetico, coke di petrolio e coke mettallurgico. Flame SA esercita commercio in tutto il mondo, il suo capitale impiegabile è 1 milione di franchi svizzeri. E non è una sorpresa, considerando i volumi degli acquisti e il profitto ricevuto.

La société européenne «Flame SA» paye aux rebelles de l’Est de l’Ukraine

KIEV, 08-Nov-2016 — /EPR GOVERNMENT NEWS/ — «Les journalistes contre la corruption et l’illégalité», un groupe de journalistes enquêteurs ukrainiens, a signalé des documents compromettants dont on avait saisi, qui témoignent de la collaboration de la société européenne «Flame SA» avec la République populaire de Donetsk (RPD), l’organisation non reconnue qui avait pris contrôle du territoire de l’Est de l’Ukraine.

Le document susmentionné est un contrat pour la fourniture de 72 000 tons de charbon conclu entre «Flame SA» et la mine «Zhdanivska» située sur le territoire incontrôlé à l’Est de l’Ukraine. Ce territoire, aussi que toutes les entreprises se trouvant sur lui, est contrôlé par les insurgés pro-russes de cette RPD. Pourtant, c’est la législation ukrainienne qui doit réglementer toutes relations commerciales comme ça : même les entreprises sur le territoire incontrôlé sont obligées à payer ses impôts au budget de l’Etat, étant immatriculées et situées sur le territoire de l’Ukraine.

Néanmoins, beaucoup de sociétés en cette région du pays ont déclaré leur «réimmatriculation» après le début des hostilités en 2014 pour payer leurs impôts au budget de la RPD autoproclamée. En fait, c’est un financement direct des rebelles. La mine «Zhdanivska», qui a reçu de l’argent à son tour de la société européenne «Flame SA», est parmi ces «sponsors».

Reste à savoir à quel titre «Flame SA» a choisi cette mine pour se procurer du charbon et pourquoi on n’a pas trouvé de source alternative de matière. Aucune demande des journalistes ukrainiens a été répondue par les représentants de la société.

Cependant, le site web de «Flame SA» est indisponible, ce qui rend impossible l’obtention de quelconques commentaires officiels sur ce marché par la société.

Le contrat a déjà capté l’attention du Service de Sécurité d’Ukraine (SSU), jusqu’à présent seulement au niveau de la traduction en justice du directeur de la mine «Zhdanivska» Ruslan Dubovsky. Il est accusé d’avoir effectué des exportations illégales à «Flame SA» ainsi qu’à un nombre d’autres sociétés afin de «financer le terrorisme» (article 258-5, paragraphe 1 du Code pénal de l’Ukraine). L’enquête du SSU sur l’affaire se poursuit jusqu’à aujourd’hui.

Et pourtant, ce n’est pas le seul faux pas de «Flame SA». D’après les journalistes ukrainiens, la société a également des relations commerciales, en contournant les sanctions internationales, avec une autre mine, «Zarechnaya», qui se trouve dans la Fédération de Russie. Cette mine représente un actif de l’entreprise «Uralvagonzavod» inscrite sur la liste des compagnies et des entreprises sanctionnées par les Etats-Unis et l’Union Européenne.

«Flame SA» et ses filiales «F-Chem SA» et «Brando International», elles toutes ont la même adresse suisse. L’activité principale de la société est la recherche et la livraison de charbon de chaudière, de coke de pétrole et de coke métallurgique. «Flame SA» fait du commerce à travers le monde, son capital libre s’élevant à un million de francs suisses. Rien d’étonnant, étant donné le volume des achats et les montants recueillis.

Doug Berger for NC Senate: Happy Birthday, Garner’s Own, Scotty McCreery

Today, Senator Doug Berger, wished local American Idol phenomenon, Scotty McCreery, a happy 19 th birthday. McCreery, who won Season 10 of the popular TV singing competition, American Idol, is from Garner, North Carolina. When asked why he singled out McCreery, Senator Berger said, “ While many people are fans of Scotty McCreery’s music, I think he should be commended for his decision to not only return to high school, but to attend North Carolina State University.”

Instead of completing his high school education through the use of tutors, Scotty McCreery opted to complete his senior year at Garner High School last fall where he competed as a pitcher on his high school baseball team. After he graduated, McCreery enroll as a freshman at North Carolina State University.

Senator Berger went on to say, “There was a real collaborative effort with his school, his parents — it’s just such a great example to young people, when someone makes it big like Scotty, yet stays grounded and puts his priorities in the right place. So many people look up to him; he’s a local hero and for Scotty to choose education – as a former school teacher that’s something I particularly appreciate, and something for which we should all be proud.”

Senator Berger is running for reelection to the Senate in the newly drawn, NC Senate District 18. The races features two candidates with varying backgrounds; there is a clear choice between Senator Doug Berger and Chad Barefoot. Senator Doug Berger’s distinguished legal career has included serving as a prosecutor, judge, and an attorney in private practice.  Berger has also served as a middle and high school teacher as well as a youth football coach.  Senator Berger’s background in education and law has given him tremendous perspective and insight during his four terms in the Senate.

Doug Berger for NC Senate: Questions Arise in NC Redistricting

Recent media reports indicate that advocacy groups found over two thousands voters who were assigned to the wrong state House, Senate or congressional districts. This information was gleaned from a “spot analysis” of six counties including: Wake, Durham, Wayne, Wilson, Robeson and Richmond. According to these reports, over two hundred of these voters received the wrong ballots on Election Day. Advocacy groups contend that black voters are much more likely than white voters to live in split precincts, which is the root of the issue.

One of the more impacted areas was the former NC Senate District 7 (Franklin, Granville, Vance, and Warren), which was carved up sending Franklin county as well as portions of Wake county into the newly formed NC Senate District 18.  This forced 4-term senator, Doug Berger, into a new district where he is unknown to many of the Wake county voters.

Senate districts were redrawn by the Republican majority during the last legislative session. To accomplish this, Thomas Hofeller who lists his present occupation as, “Redistricting Consultant at Republican National Committee,” was employed. According to Senator Rucho, who served as the Chairman of the North Carolina Senate Redistricting Committee, Hofeller was employed to provide “the technical expertise.” Hofeller also lists years of work at the United States Department of Agriculture, which has its own checkered past regarding race relations.

Doug Berger for NC Senate: Senator Doug Berger Reaffirms Support of Teachers and Education on World Teacher Day

Today, Senator Doug Berger issued the following statement regarding World Teachers’ Day:

I want to thank teachers everywhere but particularly in North Carolina. Yesterday, we learned that in North Carolina we lost about 11,791 teachers last year. North Carolina is facing a critical time and we must find our footing regarding the prioritization of public education. Teachers are entrusted with our greatest resource, our children and the future they represent.  Instead of cutting education we need to invest in education and that starts with teachers. During the last legislative session I stood with teachers. As a former teacher for both middle school and high school, I understand the challenges that teachers face. It’s bad enough that teachers find themselves as targets, but the assault on the overall funding for education makes it even worse. For example, in Franklin County , they saw a 54.4% reduction in funding for textbooks; books are becoming so expensive that schools have to guard them due to the lack of funding, a student must ask to bring a textbook home and even then, there is no guarantee they will receive permission. Recent reports place the present spending for textbooks in Franklin County at approximately $14 per student, per year – that is unacceptable. North Carolina can do better, indeed North Carolina MUST do better. The choking of our schools funding simply cannot continue. Republicans want to take money from schools so they can pay for their tax cuts for millionaires – it’s Robin Hood in reverse, rob from the areas in need and give to those who do not understand need. I hold educators in the highest regard; I understand and thank them for their sacrifice. I am extremely honored and grateful to have been endorsed by the North Carolina Association of Educators. They represent what I have spent my eight years fighting for as a State Senator. I will do everything in my power to insure teachers receive what they need to make sure our children have the best possible chance for the future.”

Held annually on October 5th since 1994 – World Teachers’ Day was created by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, with the purpose of celebrating teachers worldwide.

A long advocate for teacher’s and education, Senator Doug Berger is running for senate in NC Senate District 18. This race represents a clear choice between Senator Berger and Chad Barefoot. Senator Doug Berger’s distinguished legal career has included serving as a prosecutor, judge, and an attorney in private practice. Berger has also served as a middle and high school teacher as well as a youth football coach.

24.09.2012 Germany will not increase Eurozone rescue fund

According to the press service of the German Finance Ministry, it is unreal to increase the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) four times – from 500 billion to two trillion euros. This denial was a response to the article in Der Spiegel about the negotiations on this issue, and Germany has already spoken for the ESM increase.

Martin Kotthaus, the representative of the German Ministry of Finance in Brussels, said there were talks going on in Brussels about leveraging the capacity of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) in the same way as its predecessor, the European Financial Stability Fund (EFSF). But, asked about a report in the German media, that the ESM’s capacity could be 4 times leveraged to 2 trillion euros through the intervention of the private sector, he said this was “illusory”. “It is not feasible to talk about figures at present,” Kotthaus told reporters. “It is purely abstract.”

ESM treaty was conceived as the euro zone’s permanent bailout fund and will enter into force if it is approved by the Member States representing 90% of eurozone capital subscription at the European Central Bank. The ESM was assumed to come into force on July 1, 2012. But the deadline was postponed due to delays in the ratification procedures in a number of euro zone countries, including Germany, where ESM was first acknowledged by the Constitutional Court.

In September 2012, the German Constitutional Court admitted that the ESM permanent euro-zone bailout fund and fiscal pact ESM European Union (EU) do not contradict the legislation of the country under certain conditions. The German Constitutional Court demanded that German liabilities within the mechanism not exceed 190 billion, without the approval of the lower house of the German parliament. In addition, both houses of the German parliament should be informed of the decisions taken in the ESM.

On September, 14, Eurogroup chair Jean-Claude Juncker announced that the ESM will be operational in October 2012 and will provide the first three tranches of the total 32 billion euros. According to Angel Gurría, Secretary-General of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Eurozone bailout funds need to be increased to at least €1 trillion as soon as possible. “Greece was the first and most urgent step. But the challenges remain daunting. We need to construct a stronger financial firewall. And this wall must be high, strong, and sufficient enough to deter speculations and must be undebatable in action “- said Angel Gurria.

At the same time, according to a financial advisor Dmitry Chernavski, the ESM increase does not solve the fundamental problems of the debt crisis in Eurozone. The debt crisis in Europe, said Dmitry Chernavski, is just a consequence of the countries with different levels of life and mentality integrating into European Union. “After the clearance of liquid asset the peripheral countries in Europe can no longer offer competitive products to the world market, thus reducing the trade deficit, they cannot create jobs and stabilize the budget”, – says Dmitry Chernavski.

Palestinian Statehood Bid Questioned at UN Headquarters in New York by International Christian Delegation

A group of Christian pastors presented an outline of Bible prophesies to the U.N. relating to the proposal to recognise Palestine this month and the dangerous consequences to the nations. As reported by The Washington Post and The Associated Press in a news release dated Wednesday, August 31, 2011, Israel is resigned to the U.N. General Assembly’s endorsement of a planned Palestinian bid for admission as a state to the United Nations in late September.

Conservative Christians are virtually unanimous in their support for Israel. In mid-August, Yahoo News news.yahoo.com reported that Bible-believing pastors were in New York City to warn U.N. officials concerning the Palestinian’s admission to the United Nations. The group informed officials of the Bible’s strong warnings against dividing the land of Israel. One member of the delegation was quoted as saying“There’s a Jew on the throne of heaven and Israel is his land.”

They have repeated their warnings of the Bible’s declaration of the true owner of the land of Israel and the predicted consequences to the Nations that are involved in dividing Israel. A summation of their beliefs is as follows:

1. God’s ownership of the entire land of Israel is absolute and His conveyance of the land to the Jewish people disallows U.N. authority over Israel.

• God said of Israel, “The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine…” Leviticus 25:23

• God gave it, “To Israel for an everlasting covenant, saying, unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance” “And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee…all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.” Genesis 17:8

2. Granting nation status to the Palestinians defies God’s declaration of ownership and will lead to the following judgments:

• God said that all nations would collectively divide the land of Israel and that the people and nations involved would be judged severely. They used the following Bible verses to support their case: Zechariah 12:3 “…I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Joel 3:2 states: “I will also gather all nations …and will plead with them…for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.”

• The Bible also teaches that subsequent to dividing the land of Israel, God will bring the following types of catastrophes and judgments which are revealed in the Prophets and the New Testament:

• Worldwide financial collapse

• Worldwide weather disasters and extreme heat waves

• The greatest earthquake of all time leading to the cities falling

• Worldwide famine with plagues and pestilence

• Armageddon

“For the LORD shall rise up …he shall be wroth…Now therefore be ye not mockers…: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.” Isaiah 28:21-22

Some have asked how a loving and merciful God could seek to destroy the nations for coming against Israel. The answer they state is that they have rejected The Lord Jesus Christ, referred to in the Bible as the King of the Jews and the ruler of heaven and earth.

• “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” Matthew 28:18

• “The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.” Psalms 110:5-6

Several U.N. staff members agreed that the Bible teaches that Jesus, who paid for the sins of the world with His blood, will return and reign over the whole earth. The delegation quoted the following Biblical verses in the context of Jesus’ offer of mercy and imminent worldwide reign: “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up…to worship the King, the LORD of hosts…” Zechariah 14:16

Those who recognize their personal sin and ask Jesus for salvation will escape the world-wide judgements. “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness…” Mark 7:21-22

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13.

WTAMU Professor Seeks Exit Poll Data

Dr. Dave Rausch is gearing up for November’s general election. That’s because Rausch, Teel Bivins Professor of Political Science at West Texas A&M University, loves studying election results and is conducting an exit poll for November’s gubernatorial election.

“I use exit polls to uncover the reasons why voters selected a particular candidate,” Rausch said. “I also use the data for teaching social statistics.”

An exit poll is a survey of sorts taken soon after selected voters leave their voting place. This type of poll differs from an opinion poll by asking how the voter actually voted. Rausch is asking voters to visit wtamu.edu or his web site at wtamu.edu/~jrausch. Both sites will have a link for the exit poll with a few questions about the election as well as questions on term limits, the Tea Party movement and the United States Congress. Voters also will be asked some economic questions and about religious affiliation and church attendance to help Rausch define voting trends.

“The information collected will give me a better understanding of why voters cast ballots as they did,” Rausch said.

Early voting runs Oct. 18-29, and election day is Tuesday, Nov. 2. The general election ballot will include the race for several state offices including governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general.

Martha Lane Fox’s ‘Network Nation’ Will Help The Jobless

Internet millionaire Fil Adams Mercer put his support squarely behind the Coalition Government’s plans to get 10 million more Britons to use the internet.

“There were seven million jobs advertised online last year. 900,000 unemployed people do not currently use the internet. It’s a no brainer,” said Mr Adams Mercer, whose online parcel company Parcel2Go has grown to a £16 million business.

Martha Lane Fox, the Government’s ‘digital champion’ and founder of Lastminute.com, intends to have 100% of the British public online by the Olympic year 2012 with her ‘Network Nation’.

The potential savings for Government are obvious if a higher percentage of administrative functions can be performed online.

“We’re not advocating that everyone has a computer at home. There has been so much ICT (information and communication technologies) investment into communities – into schools, into GP surgeries, into libraries. For example, there are 500,000 computers locked up in schools every night. That’s just dumb, especially now, when we need to be sweating our assets as much as we can,” she said.

The Prime Minister said: “We need to ensure that people aren’t being left behind as more and more services and business move online. Promoting digital inclusion is essential for a dynamic modern economy and can help to make government more efficient and effective.”

President’s Call For Jobs and Justice Fuels Rallies By National Black Farmers Association

The call for jobs and a renewed emphasis on civil rights in the State of the Union address will echo through upcoming rallies, according to Dr. John Boyd, president of the National Black Farmers Association.

President's Call For Jobs and Justice Fuels Rallies By National Black Farmers Association

In a series of regional events, black farmers will urge Congress and President Obama to act now on a promised $1.15 billion to remedy decades of discrimination.

“The nation’s treatment of black farmers is a blight. Empty promises only make matters worse,” said Dr. Boyd. “It is time for Congress to do the right thing and compensate discriminated black farmers for the government’s wrongs against them. It certainly has found the will to fund far less worthy and much more expensive causes. “

Beginning on February 6 in Little Rock, Arkansas, black farmers and supporters from some of the most depressed areas of the country will come together to insist on long promised and long delayed justice. It was back in 1999 that the government agreed to one of the largest civil rights settlements in our history, the Pigford case, due to discriminatory practices by the USDA.

In his State of the Union address, President Obama observed: “We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal, that no matter who you are or what you look like, if you abide by the law you should be protected by it; that if you adhere to our common values you should be treated no different than anyone else.”

On the other side of the aisle, Governor Bob McDonnell of Virginia found it easy to agree on the subject of job creation.

“We were encouraged to hear President Obama speak this evening about the need to create jobs,” said McDonnell. “All Americans should have the opportunity to find and keep meaningful work, and the dignity that comes with it.”

But for black farmers, the ideals laid out by both President Obama and Governor McDonnell have been only a dream. Black farmers and supporters will rally throughout the Southeast culminating in a rally in front of the US Department of Agriculture in Washington, DC to make heard the urging of thousands: keep your promise; justice now.

The rally schedule includes:

Saturday, February 6, 2010: Little Rock, Arkansas (The Downtown Hilton)
Monday, February, 8, 2010: Memphis, Tennessee (Handy Park)
Tuesday, February 9, 2010: Jackson, Missouri (Battlefield Park)
Wednesday, February 10, 2010: Montgomery, Alabama (in front of the Capital Building)
Thursday, February 11, 2010: Columbus, Georgia (The Columbus Civic Center)
Friday, February 12, 2010: Columbia, South Carolina (The Clarion Hotel)
Saturday, February 13, 2010: Richmond, Virginia (Downtown Hilton)
Monday, February 15, 2010: Washington, DC (US Department of Agriculture – Jefferson Drive side)

Tony Blair Rewards $14.95 a Month to Middle Class in New labour Government Rhetoric

Trying to raise the veil of ignorance surrounding the Blair rewards program is quite a mystery and requires significant data collection, statistical analysis, and number crunching. Based on significant time and energy to determine the net cost for the middle class, it has been established that Blair rewards cost the average middle class family $14.95 a month.

The blairrewards received notice as Tony Blair continued to promote politicians by rewarding them for self-serving actions. The Blair rewards program was deployed as a means to achieve additional political power and incentivize individual politicians to side with Tony Blair in order to further their careers. Naturally, this type of political lobbying is somewhat commonplace in our society, no matter how unfortunate it may be.

The new Labour Government and many individuals get caught in the confusion. When there is confusion, there is a profit to be made. The Blair rewards program has profited Tony Blair considerably. In return for his greater locus of control and promotion of war, he has received a generous token position with JP Morgan for millions of dollars a year.

By researching the Blair rewards program it has come to light that the ramifications of blair rewards is $14.95 a month (8.89 GBP) for the middle class. From all of the confusion and settling of dust surrounding the stratagem deployed by Tony Blair the cost is finally put into terms that one can understand. The average family no longer gets rewards of $14.95 a month because they were left behind by the conservative party.

Tony Blair Rewards from JP Morgan Chase and U.S Circuit Lectures Tops $2 Million Annually

The notable Blair rewards program just keeps getting better. It appears that the Blair rewards goes both ways. As political officials further their careers by receiving rewards for holding the line that Tony Blair deems worthy, Tony Blair receives rewards from big business. Tony Blair received $1 million from JP Morgan Chase and $250,000 for a 45 minute speech on the United States lecture circuit.

Known as the easy saver when it comes to the Blair rewards program, Tony Blair saves and promotes political careers for politicians willing to hold the line, his line. Perhaps Blair rewards would not be considered in such a negative light by the general public if the line that he was holding made sense for the rest of the world rather than a few elite politicians selling hope and salvation, while creating destruction and despair. The result is so much power and so little idea of how to use it.

For politicians it pays to act on the interest of war. French President Jacques Chirac, who was against the war in the Middle East, has not reaped the benefits of lucrative circuit lectures. Apparently, his opposition and insistence on peace is of little benefit to the high dollar stakeholders and businesses in the United States. After all, without the war in Iraq it would have been difficult to raid the coffers of the United States and launder and distribute astonishingly large amount of cash though big business in the name of peace via a war on terror. The value for the ring leaders is that they get to leave office with little to no accountability and then go and collect from the businesses that benefitted from their self interested decisions.

Certainly, the Blair rewards program is taken as more of a feather in Tony Blair’s hat rather than a stain upon his name and character. As a politician trying to become elected or reelected, the easy saver would be a path of least resistance and a tempting offer to consider. This simply proves the stereotype that politicians are only interested in money and power. Too many people either did nothing or participated in the Blair rewards program, which has allowed evil to prevail.

It is unfortunate that the Blair rewards program has come full circle from the United States. As the economy is in the tank, the elite reward those who helped get us there. While many individuals have suffered as a result of self-interested decision making, Blair rewards himself with a 45 minute lecture for a fee of $250,000.

Summary:
The $1 million From the Dan David Foundation, the Blair Rewards of $250 thousand for his 45 minute lecture on the U.S. Lecture Circuit and the JP Morgan Chase $1 million have sweetened the Blair kitty for retirement while the middle class gets kitty litter. This still stinks in my opinion, even if we got the kitty litter.

Bobby Blair is politically conscious individual that is intolerant of political misuse such as the blair rewards program. Issues like the blair rewards are examples of the political misuse of power and influence faced by society. Left unchallenged this type of behavior may result in compounded social problems for the world.

Tony Blair Rewards all But Those Who Complain, Who’s The Easy Saver Now

The Blair rewards program is a brilliant illustration of the political circus. As the global climate continues to spiral into economic ruin Blair rewards continue to create controversy and mistrust of government officials. It is good to see individuals rising up to question the Blair rewards as they make a mockery of the intelligence of the populous.

Blair rewards complaints are not new; however, they are becoming more main stream, which is making it more difficult to sweep the controversy of the Blair rewards program under the rug. Several Blair rewards complaints have resulted in greater attention to the action of our public officials. Sadly, the Blair rewards program would likely not have been put under such scrutiny if it was not such a transparent program for self-promotion and self-interest.

It is as though the blair rewards program has taken a chapter from the lobbyist’s handbook of achieving one’s own self interest no matter what the cost is for other individuals. The Blair rewards complaints are likely to result in nothing more than a political slap on the wrist resulting in a bit of bad press before the next sensational story comes about for journalists to pursue. In the mean time, spinning the Blair rewards program is easily accomplished through rhetoric and various other political tactics.

Unfortunately, Blair rewards complaints are nothing more than discourse catalyzing no change or modification of behavior by politicians and the status quo. The level of openness regarding the blatant favor-seeking behavior as illustrated through the Blair rewards program should be somewhat suspicious. Like many other things in the world, it propagates a certain acceptance by the general public that politicians are not trustworthy and therefore the Blair rewards program opens the door for future politicians to simply follow suit. The general population then becomes more accepting of such practices as a result of being lulled into submission by the precedence set forth by Blair rewards.

The precedent set by the Blair rewards program is then an open ticket for more open political lobbying practices. As we move forward, the population becomes more and more desensitized to this type of behavior creating a vacuum for future misconduct. Blair rewards can be similarly described as the way businesses interact with one another. The difference is that the Blair rewards program is funded by the general public and the only stakeholder that is benefiting from the program is Tony Blair.

If the Blair rewards complaints fail to carry any consequences, then there is really no reason to change the practices. Essentially, without consequences the Blair rewards program is a program that is surrounded by only upside potential for continuing the practice. Politicians are well-accustomed to negative press and they understand that the general public is forgetful as a result of such things being so far out of their domain for understanding. It is easy for the public to forgive such actions when they place themselves in a position of thinking that the politicians must have more information at their disposal, which is justification enough for propagating such behavior.

Bobby Blair is politically conscious individual that is keen on addressing blair rewards complaints. Issues like the blair rewards program are good examples of the problems that we face as a society. Left unchallenged this type of behavior can go unmitigated and result in additional social problems for the world.

The Latest Health Study Of 9/11 Survivors And Rescue Workers Is Raising Serious Concerns Among Leading Experts And Politicians Alike

According to the World Trade Center Medical Working Group of New York City’s 2009 Annual Report on 9/11 Health, long-term medical and mental health problems continue to rise in the terrorist attack victims. The report also underscores the urgent need for increased special federal funding for medical services and additional research. [http://home.nyc.gov/html/om/pdf/2009/pr418-09_report.pdf]

“It’s critically important to sickened 9/11 heroes and heroines that they are not forgotten as the majority of them still don’t have the proper health care and struggle with medical insurance companies,” says Steven M. Centore, author of One of Them: A First Responder’s Story.

Mr. Centore, who is a 9/11 first responder, a federal employee and a Navy veteran, details his own battles with medical insurance companies and the federal government in his book—battles that have made his many 9/11-related health problems all the more painful to deal with.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg released the Annual Report on 9/11 Health, which was based on recent medical and environmental research.

“We will do whatever is needed to take care of those who came to our aid after the city’s darkest day,” said Mayor Bloomberg.

Appointed by the mayor two years ago, The World Trade Center Medical Working Group is comprised of health experts in the fields of science, medicine and government. Its aim is to examine and analyze research findings on health impacts caused by the September 11 attack.

“It’s eight years after the attack and 9/11 victims continue to fight for the government’s attention and help,” adds Mr. Centore. “They put their own health, their own lives and the futures of their families on the line when the nation needed them, and they deserve respect for their sacrifices.”

Mr. Centore has appeared at congressional hearings to fight for the rights of the thousands of first responders. In his book he details his own personal account of his experience at Ground Zero on 9/11.

The Inside Story, William E. Mayer’s Warriors – No Place for the Meek

A magnificent two volume book set of “Beyond the Call, Memoirs of a Medical Visionary”, the life and times of Dr. William E. Mayer, has just been released and is available through national distribution in book stores and online everywhere. This is the stirring biography of one of America’s most noted, dedicated and decorated heroes. From his beginnings in the military, to his courageous climb in civil service and political station in government office, his career was a true and valiantly fought war of a different kind…for the rights and dignity of the US warrior and private citizen of the United States. Every soldier honors his country, his fellow military brother or sister and those who have passed in valor by committing to memory and living by the very principles that make the American soldier the best and toughest fighting machine in the world…the Military Code of Conduct…brought about by the work of William E Mayer, MD in the study of POW’s and their behavior following the Korean War.

Dr. Mayer relates with great candor, the unvarnished realities of dealing with medical incompetence, how it happens and why it happens with great clarity and brutal honesty. He recorded each event of his personal missions over the tours of duty in some of the hottest combat zones of Korea, the Middle East and Washington DC. Dr. Mayer was never a shy, retiring type, but a warrior who welcomed the challenge to get it right, correct it now and build it strong with conviction, drive and purpose.

From his broad perspective as a dedicated military officer, Assistant US Secretary of Defense and Assistant U.S. Surgeon General, these books expose the unsavory secrets of political incompetence and corrupt practices that were in his charge to fix and then police. He became one of the most respected physicians in government. He will take you there word by word, action by action and event by event in these two volumes that you will never put down until finished. He is charming, witty, poignant and sometimes brutal, but will never polish the truth.

“Beyond the Call, Memoirs of a Medical Visionary” is published by Mayer, Publishing Group International located in University Place, Washington and Albuquerque New Mexico. The book is available directly from http://www.amazon.com, or your local bookstore. Dealer discounts offered through Baker & Taylor & Ingram.
