Clearwater City Council candidates
mum on Scientology’s impact downtown

Tampa Bay Times, by Tracey McManus

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 2/13/2018 11:18:08 PM

CLEARWATER — At a recent City Council election debate, the first question pitched to the four candidates was: What is the biggest problem facing Clearwater right now? Seat 5 incumbent Hoyt Hamilton answered in code. "I’m willing to work with anybody, but they have to be open and honest in how they communicate and we haven’t always had that, so I think one of the biggest problems trying to move Clearwater forward is getting people to communicate openly and honestly with what we’re trying to do." Wait. Who is "they"? Which people are not being honest? Asked in a later interview if he was

Comments:
The uniformed wind up automatons striding around downtown Clearwater with their beepers and keychains have nothing in common with the locals, and don´t mix with the outside world. They´re just into L. Ron´s every twisted thought. Getting this mind-controlling cult out of town won´t be easy; they´re deeply lodged like a Deliverance deer hunter´s arrow in the rapist hillbilly´s sternum at the riverfront. Well, you pulled it out; let´s see if you can pull that out.

When Scientologists open up Kool-Aid stands in Clearwater...Better be on your guard!

Or remember the old Arab saying,"...Lay down with camels, expect to wake up with fleas.

Nobody´s Even Pretending
Anymore That Alec Baldwin
Can Impersonate Trump
PJ Media, by Jim Treacher    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 5/14/2018 7:44:06     Post Reply
I´ve never understood why anybody thinks Alec Baldwin´s impersonation of Donald Trump is good. When Baldwin first showed up as Trump on Saturday Night Live a month before the election -- never dreaming that he´d end up impersonating a sitting president -- everybody oohed and aahed over him. "A technical marvel," proclaimed Wired. "Uncanny," swooned Popcrush. Meanwhile, I can´t help but notice that Baldwin looks and sounds more like a heavier, even raspier Lloyd Bridges. The wig and ill-fitting suit are doing most of the work. Alec Baldwin does not and cannot impersonate Donald Trump. He´s just a fading movie

Florida Insider Poll: Doubts about
Bill Nelson beating Rick Scott grow

Even amid all the talk of the Democratic political wave this year, Florida´s political elites are growing skeptical about Sen. Bill Nelson´s prospects for fending off Gov. Rick Scott´s challenge. Among more than 200 experts and veterans of Florida politics surveyed in the latest Tampa Bay Times Florida Insider Poll, nearly six in 10 this week said they expect Scott to unseat the three-term Democratic Senator. Just over two months ago, more than 57 percent of the Florida Insiders surveyed expected Nelson to win. "I´m very worried about Sen. Nelson," said a Democrat. "I think the Democrats need to reevaluate

In Cuba, the great American

HAVANA - As U.S.-Cuba relations warmed in recent years, Matilde Portela, an Airbnb host, reveled in the flood of American tourists. An aspiring business executive at age 73, she quickly learned the art of niche marketing - adorning her home with two American flags and laying out back copies of the New Yorker magazine. "We had so many Americans coming that we didn’t know where to put them," Portela said. But Cuba’s Great American Tourism Boom has turned to bust. During the first three months of this year, 95,520 Americans came to Cuba - a 40 percent drop from the same period last

In the aftermath of the epic failure of law enforcement at Stoneman Douglas High School, a number of companies adopted preening, anti-gun stances. One of them was Dick’s Sporting Goods. What makes this weird is that Dick’s is a major retailer of firearms. If you haven’t followed the story, the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action sums up: "We have recently been reporting on the bizarre anti-gun activism of one of the nation’s larger firearm retailers, Dick’s Sporting Goods and its affiliated Field & Stream stores.

Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei are two of the three founders of the news site Axios. Allen came out of Politico via the Washington Post; VandeHei had co-founded Politico after work at the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal. They are heavy hitters in the news business. When they purported to summarize “The public case against Trump” yesterday, I thought attention should be paid. Allen and VandeHei set forth what they declared to be “known knowns” in a series of bullet points, of which this was the first (emphasis in original): “We know Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign chair, has

Bill Nelson is hitting the campaign trail on Saturday, marking one of the first formal events he´s had since the U.S. Senate race with Rick Scott got rolling a month ago. Nelson and state Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith "will join the families of victims lost during the Pulse massacre as they pay their respects Saturday at the interim memorial unveiled this week to honor the survivors and the 49 killed during the June 2016 tragedy," the campaign said. "Also, on Saturday, Nelson´s Neighbors, the Nelson campaign grassroots team, is joining the Seminole County Democrats and Seminole County Young Democrats for a canvass

John Morgan contributes another

Setting the stage for a possible ballot proposal in 2020, Orlando attorney John Morgan last month put more than $154,000 into an effort to raise Florida´s minimum wage, according to a finance report posted online Thursday. The $154,230 contribution from Morgan´s firm, Morgan & Morgan P.A., went to the political committee Florida For A Fair Wage. Since December, the Morgan firm has funneled $478,158 to the committee — all the money the committee has raised. The committee, which is chaired by Morgan, is backing a proposed constitutional amendment that would raise the state´s minimum wage to $10, effective

We’re all educated by our peers and, over the years, a good portion of Donald Trump’s peers have been thugs. Operating in the New York construction world meant dealing with S&A Concrete, co-owned by "Fat Tony" Salerno of the Genovese crime family, and John Cody, the notorious head of Teamsters Local 282, who was convicted on racketeering and tax evasion charges. Building casinos in Atlantic City, N.J., brought Trump into similarly genteel circles. Trump’s hero was Roy Cohn, who unfortunately was born too late to serve the emperor Caligula.

John Kerry was just seen leaving a cafe in Paris after meeting with what appeared to be five Iranians driven in vehicles with diplomatic plates, according to Trump campaign senior advisor Jason Osborne. Osborne tweeted on Saturday: "So John Kerry just left a meeting @ L’Avenue in Paris w/3 Iranians. A friend was sitting next to their table and heard JK blasting @realDonaldTrump. The Iranians had a 5 person security detail and left in diplomatic vehicles. Is he FARA registered?" (Tweet) "FARA" is the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

In his new book, The Restless Wave, and in an upcoming HBO documentary, U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) expresses regret about choosing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate in the 2008 election. According to The New York Times, in the documentary, McCain refers to the Palin selection as “another mistake” he made in a long political career. In his new book, McCain reportedly claims that former Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, a Democrat, would have been a better choice for the ticket. McCain noted that his advisers convinced him not to choose the Democrat, so he

Premium cigars have second chance to
gain exemption from FDA regulation

TAMPA — A "Save This Factory" banner will be rehung next week on J.C. Newman Cigar’s Ybor City factory, and the company’s savecigarcity.com website lobbying against government oversight of premium cigars will be relaunched. Both were tactics that company president Eric Newman used to fight the Food and Drug Administration as the agency weighed whether to lump in premium cigars with mass-produced stogies, vaporizers and e-cigarettes as part of its regulatory expansion over tobacco. His effort failed, and in 2016, the FDA chose to regulate premium cigars. But Newman and his industry have a second chance under a new administration that touts itself

In “Robert Mueller would prefer not to” we took a look at Special Counsel Mueller’s reluctance to proceed with criminal case he has brought against Concord Management, one of the three Russian entities he has indicted. There I noted that Mueller appeared not to anticipate that any of the defendants would appear in court to defend against the charges. Rather, Mueller seems to have obtained the indictment to serve a public relations purpose, laying out the case for interference as understood by the government and lending a veneer of respectability to the Mueller Switch Project.

Conservative syndicated columnist George Will wrote this week that Vice President Mike Pence has “become America’s most repulsive public figure.” Why does Will think Pence deserves this absurd slur? Apparently, the columnist has found the vice president guilty of the heinous crime of being a decent man. Will announced in 2016 that he was leaving the Republican Party over the nomination of Donald Trump as the GOP’s presidential candidate. So it is no surprise that Will has become part of the so-called “resistance” to the duly elected president of the United States. He’s even become a contributor to NBC and its

Shortly after President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal last Tuesday, an adviser to a top Iranian official retaliated by dropping a bombshell threat. The threat concerned the president’s plan to reimpose sanctions on Iran: An adviser to H.J.Ansari Zarif, the deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, specifically threatened to expose every corrupt official who accepted bribes to make the Iran deal happen three years ago. “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they

Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted the ´terrible joke´ a White House aide told about cancer-stricken John McCain and said if his own aide made such an error he would apologize. Graham, who has traveled the globe with McCain and is one of his closest friends in the Senate, spoke after the White House refused to apologize for the crude remark and press secretary Sarah Sanders fumed about leaks rather than condemning the remark. Asked if he was satisfied with the White House response, Graham, a South Carolina Republican, responded: ´No, not really.´ He called Kelly Sadler´s reported joke about McCain´s opposition to Trump CIA

Washington - Senate candidate Mitt Romney of Utah said Sunday a prominent Baptist minister shouldn’t be giving the prayer that opens the US Embassy in Jerusalem because he’s a “religious bigot.” In a tweet, the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee criticized Dallas minister Robert Jeffress for his remarks about Jews, Mormons and Islam. The Jerusalem Open House on Monday also lambasted Jeffress’s participation, saying he had in the past called gay rights promoters “pedophilia activists” and said homosexuality was a “perversion.” Jeffress, a Southern Baptist who vigorously

Martin Luther King Jr. once said there is nothing in the world more dangerous than sincere ignorance. Well, sincere ignorance had a banner day last week when President Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal. A CNN/ORC poll taken shortly before Trump’s decision found that a majority of Americans — 63 percent — wanted the U.S. to stay in the deal. But get this: 62 percent of Americans believed Iran had violated its terms. To me, the second result is the more alarming. That poll is proof of sincere ignorance of the deal on the part of nearly two-thirds of Americans. They are under the spell of Trump’s

A profane tirade during a parent-teacher conference this week at a Dallas elementary school led to a teacher being injured and a woman facing assault charges. The alleged attack happened Tuesday at John Neely Bryan Elementary School in east Oak Cliff. A teacher reported that a woman accused her of "pinching her nephew" and assaulted her during an 11 a.m. parent-teacher conference, according to the arrest warrant. Lakietha Lashell Lawrence, 27, was arrested by Dallas school district police officers on charges of assaulting a public servant. She was taken to the Dallas County Jail.

Washington - Among recent pilgrims to the Arizona ranch of Senator John McCain was Joe Biden. The Republican, who has an aggressive form of brain cancer, urged the former vice-president to “not walk away” from politics, Biden told the New York Times. It did not take much imagination to see this as a metaphorical shove – into the next race for the White House. Biden has the desire, the pedigree – and the rage. On Friday, incensed by reports that a White House aide had dismissed McCain with the terse comment “he’s dying anyway”, the 75-year-old Democrat let rip, declaring

After months of swaggering hesitation, President Trump finally announced the United States’ withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, to which Britain, France, Russia, China, Germany and the European Union are also parties. This action tramples on European leaders, who urged Mr. Trump to exercise restraint in the interest of international security and multilateralism. Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, reacted to Mr. Trump’s announcement with a sharp statement. The European Union and the rest of the international community, she said, would “preserve this nuclear deal.” The question is how. Notwithstanding an abundance of
