Burlington Derailed — The Continuing Story

04 May

Recovery From Drunkards and Fools


“They’re happy to see you continue to work towards your progress as you’re reaching your goals and eliminating those deficit accounts that were on your books,” said Squires. “I think you’re going to continue to see what I call some ‘upward rating pressure’.”

Burlington's financial prospects are reportedly brightening.

City Hall has largely been swept clean of the guilty. Remain vigilant. Electing another lot like the ones who made the mess is not in our interests best.

The media ignores the actual laws which apply to Clinton’s email server

Clinton in Grave Criminal Circumstances

Of Her Own Lawless Behavior

"The applicable statute, 18 USC 793, however, does not even once mention the word “classified.” The focus is on “information respecting the national defense” that potentially “could be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation.” 793 (f) specifically makes it a crime for anyone “entrusted with … any document … or information relating to the national defense … through gross negligence (to permit) the same to be removed from its proper place of custody.” A jury (not a Democrat or Republican political administration) is, of course, the best body to determine gross negligence on the facts of this case.

The courts have held repeatedly that “national defense information” includes closely held military, foreign policy and intelligence information and that evidence that the information is classified is not necessary for a prosecution. Evidence that the information was upon later review found to be classified, however, as is the case with approximately 2,000 Clinton messages, is of course one kind of proof that the information met the test of “national defense information” in the first place.

...The law itself seems to be clear on one point: no matter how many times the former Secretary of State crows about the documents not being “marked classified” while residing on her private server, those markings are not only not central to the case, but they aren’t even mentioned in the law. This all comes back to the entire “born classified” theory of intelligence control. Even if she were somehow unaware that maps of North Korean nuclear sites should have been considered sensitive, that doesn’t change the fundamental nature of the documents and the danger they could pose to US interests if they were exposed. (It does, however, say something about Clinton’s fitness for even that office, to say nothing of her qualifications to be leader of the free world.)

So what’s the penalty which we should have been discussing all this time for those in violation of 18 USC 793? (Emphasis added)

Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or (2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

Courtney Stoops to Level Below Whale Crap

Disgusting Turd Senator Tom Courtney Still Floating in Own Juice


"A southeast Iowa senator says it is “way past time” for the legislature to investigate the foreign company that’s building a huge fertilizer plant in Wever. Senator Tom Courtney, a Democrat from Burlington, suggests the company isn’t turning out to be the economic godsend it was billed to be.

“When the governor first told us about this it was Orascom,” Courtney said this morning during a speech in the Iowa Senate. “People in my district now are calling it ‘Orascam’ because it seems to be a scam.”

Hurry, hurry, we need an investigation, now, right now, this very minute, just like the oversight Courtney provided for the Film Office and school board association.

The speech the peasant jackass gave to the Iowa Senate is probably the most stupid thing I've ever heard from Courtney. Maybe Courtney should submit to a drug test.
