The Reality of Supposed CIA Torture
"Khalid Sheikh Mohammed told me personally, “Your country will turn on you, the liberal media will turn on you, the people will grow tired of this, they will turn on you. And when they do, you are going to be abandoned.”
...“How many times in your life have you had a law enforcement official call you up in the middle of the day and say, ‘Leave your house immediately?’ That happened to me a couple of days ago,” Mitchell said.
“I don’t mind giving my life for my country but I do mind giving my life for a food fight for political reasons between two groups of people who should be able to work it out like adults,” he added."
Violent Crime in Burlington Takes No Holiday
"Burlington police continue their investigation into a pair of robberies
in last Thursday night…one around 10:30 and reported just after it happened…and the other committed early last(Thur) night, but not reported until Friday morning."
Burlington's criminal class remain hard at work as 2014 draws to a close. When the FBI compiles per capita violent crimes for the year, 2014 may show an embarrassing increase.
The Great Wall of Burlington
Burlington wants a levee.
If there were not all the "free" money from the state and feds to chase, it is doubtful Burlington would consider a levee. The cost to benefit ratio would not add up.
Most of Burlington "protected" by a levee would be parking lots. The Port of Burlington is an old truck terminal designed for rapid removal of valuables inside. The building most affected has been Memorial Auditorium.
What cost a new auditorium on higher ground? There is no shortage of blighted real estate in Burlington's core. The empty lot Manor Mall may not be large enough without a parking ramp. There is probably no "free" money for a new auditorium.
Burlington is no position to go it alone on a new auditorium out of the river's reach. After our recent rule by fools, Burlington can not even fix the streets. The cry has become spend more of what we have not to chase "free" money for a levee. We will all be happy and secure if we do.
Burlington's levee may well prove a Maginot Line against the Mississippi at its mightiest. Gulfport across the creek had water over the roofs in 1965. Gulfport got an improved levee after the flood of 1965 and the Mississippi has hardly bothered them since then.
The best way to defeat flooding is declare victory and leave the flood plain battlefield to the waters.

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon Denies Obama Admin Pressured Him Over National Guard
Governor Caught in Lie At Press Conference Stating He Never Talked to the White House
Democratic "Missouri Governor Jay Nixon adamantly denies that the White House pressured him
to resist sending in the National Guard in response to violent protesters unhappy with the Michael Brown shooting decision.
It is clear, however, that Nixon has been in close contact with President Obama's senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as the chaotic situation unfolded. According to the White House, Jarrett spoke with Nixon the first night of the protests as well as the morning after.
Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz confirmed that Jarrett received “updates” from Nixon, “promising to stay in close touch” as the situation continued.
“Valerie spoke to Governor Nixon both last night and this morning, and has been briefing the President on an ongoing basis since last night,” Schultz said, speaking to reporters on Air Force One. “And in each of those conversations with Governor Nixon, Valerie has pledged to stay in close coordination with the Governor in making sure that he’s getting the support he needs from the federal government.”
