    Don't cities have a right to decide what they want to have in their parks?


    Yes, I think cities ought to be able to decide what they have in their parks.

    It should be decided, I think, after civil debate by a vote of the City Council. Some other city council can later change the decision if they wish.

    I can't imagine who else should be deciding such an issue.

    The Feds ?
    nah

    The State ?
    Well, maybe,but....

    To have cities decide is best.

    They might vote to have no statues at all in city parks, which is fine too. Hard to complain about that.

    “Unexpected Fountain Of Youth” Found In Cardiac Stem Cells, Says Researcher

    Cardiac stem cells derived from young hearts helped reverse the signs of aging when directly injected into the old hearts of elderly rats, a study published Monday in the European Heart Journal demonstrated.

    The old rats appeared newly invigorated after receiving their injections. As hoped, the cardiac stem cells improved heart function yet also provided additional benefits. The rats’ fur fur, shaved for surgery, grew back more quickly than expected, and their chromosomal telomeres, which commonly shrink with age, lengthened.

    The old rats receiving the cardiac stem cells also had increased stamina overall, exercising more than before the infusion.

    “It’s extremely exciting,” said Dr. Eduardo Marbán, primary investigator on the research and director of the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute. Witnessing “the systemic rejuvenating effects,” he said, “it’s kind of like an unexpected fountain of youth.”

  11. President Donald Trump blasted establishment and left-wing media on Tuesday afternoon for failing to report the facts on violent left-wing protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

    In the main lobby of Trump Tower in New York City, the president grew combative after a throng of reporters started shouting questions about why he “waited” to specifically condemn neo-Nazis and white nationalists.

    “There was no way of making a correct statement that early,” he said, defending his first statement on Saturday before the facts were in. “Unlike you and unlike the media, before I make a statement, I like to know the facts.”

    As reporters grew more agitated, Trump continued defending his decision and condemning the media for their one sided reporting.

    Trump again denounced racist elements among the protesters, including people supporting the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white nationalists, but clarified that he still believed that there was blame on both sides.

    “You look at both sides. I think there is blame on both on both sides. I have no doubt about it … if you reported it accurately, you would say that,” he said.

    Reporters demanded to know whether the driver of the car that injured counter-protesters and killed a woman in the crowd was a domestic terrorist.

    “I think the driver of the car is a disgrace to himself, his family and this country,” Trump replied. “The driver of the car is a murderer. What he did was a horrible, horrible, inexcusable thing.”

      Lack of knowledge of the facts never stopped Mr Trump from commenting on terrorist attacks in Europe.

      “The driver of the car is a murderer. What he did was a horrible, horrible, inexcusable thing.”
      The driver of the car is a terrorist, for Mr Trump to not explicitly say so, an endorsement of the alt-right.
      Much worse than Mr Obama not calling Islamic Terrorism by name, since the alt-right terrorists are domestic in nature.

  25. Racial fear and bigotry are baked into our history, transferred through generations by people who cling to a misbegotten view of honesty, courage and truth.

    But the resistance to those views is strong and loud, filled with people, young and old, who know better. Many of them were in Charlottesville too, and because of them we can believe that what happened there Saturday wasn't a move backward.

    It was a display of what it looks like to move forward, angrily and hopefully, lugging the past with us.

    The Antiquities Act of 1906 provides for the protection of historic, prehistoric, and scientific features located on federal lands. It authorizes the President to designate as National Monuments historic and natural resources of national significance located on federally owned or controlled land.

    The Secretaries of the Interior, Agriculture and Defense are authorized to issue permits for archaeological investigations on lands under their control to recognized educational and scientific institutions for the purpose of systematically and professionally gathering data of scientific
    value.

    The GOP in each state should propose state laws similar to federal laws. Those that refuse to comply, we know who they are and Trump can deal with them in the next election.

      The alt-right and white nationalist groups protesting the moving of the Confederate statues and monuments are doing it less to preserve aspects of American history and more because they view it as one more attack on white America, but then, these same guys see pretty much everything as an attack on white America. It is their stock in trade.

      How do we know this? Well, Jason Kessler, the guy who organized this day in the park for a few of his close friends and himself, told us so. And I rather doubt that other speakers at the rally, David Duke, Richard Spencer, et al, would disagree.

      This was simply a bunch of yahoos looking for attention and confrontation. Robert E. Lee was as good an excuse as any other.

    Of course there were white Americans who oppose the leftist ethnic cleansing of US history. That is their right. If you are implying that every white person there was a "white supremacist" , the comment is based on ignorance of the facts.

    There were white fascists on both sides. There were white radicals on both sides. The woman killed was white. There were blacks, most were law abiding and some were, radicals, thugs and criminals.

    Anyone with a basic understanding of US law knows that all are equal under the law. The radical Left does not.

    No one in a free society has a right to shut down the free speech and right to assemble. That is lawlessness. The Leftist radicals believe that they are elite and not obligated to be confined by societal norms and US Law. Leftists always do this, in China, The Taliban, Russia, Germany and Italy.

      Kessler refused to change his request and went to Lee Park instead. He was asked by police to leave and again refused.

  32. This whole ugly affair was based by piss poor leadership of the police and a totally unprepared and undermanned police force.

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe's actions before and after the deadly weekend race clashes in Charlottesville are coming under fire amid calls for an independent review to determine if politics played a role.

    Former Republican Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore on Tuesday raised new questions about Richmond's involvement in the riots the claimed three lives and said the public "needs to know" if the state and city had taken the proper precautions to avoid the clashes and if police were told to stand down.

    ReplyDelete
  33. In an interview with Secrets, he dismissed McAuliffe's call for an internal review. Instead, Gilmore, who was a presidential candidate in 2016, said that an independent group must be charged with the investigation, taking it out of the governor's office.

    "This has to be an independent review. We have to know what the governor did, how he participated in it, whether he was part of the meetings, whether he had a meeting, whether the secretary of public safety was in the meeting, where it was held, was it in Richmond or Charlottesville, what planning was done, and what constraints if any were put on the police," said Gilmore, a former Virginia attorney general and county attorney.

    Gilmore, president of the American Opportunity Foundation, formerly known as the Free Congress Foundation, said, "While we support the police, we know they do a good job, we don't know what direction they got at the time of the Charlottesville riots."

    Several reports have said that the police stood by as white supremacists and their foes faced off in fights. Others said that when the violence escalated, unprepared police had to leave to get proper equipment.

    Gilmore also said there was a report that some police were "asked to stand aside and be more passive."

    He added, "They didn't have a plan to separate these groups. The governor seems to be blaming everybody else."

    Gilmore said, "You have to have afore-knowledge of what is ready to happen and a plan in place to be able to deal with it so the police can carry out the plan. In this case the was no plan apparently to divide these people from one to the other. We need to know, we need to be advised as to what action was taken or not taken."

    In a televised statement Saturday, McAuliffe seemed to blame the white hate groups for the violence, but he later blamed the ACLU which sued to keep the protest in downtown Charlottesville.

  34. We will hear more about McAuliffe's role in this. Being a long time Clintonite, it is not his first rodeo

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, the top Clinton operative who holds elected office, is under investigation yet again. This time, it involves $120,000 given to McAuliffe's gubernatorial campaign by a billionaire who served in China's communist legislature.

    McAuliffe's business and political dealings have raised questions repeatedly. For example, in the 1990s, as McAuliffe set records raising money for the Clintons, congressional investigators uncovered a Chinese government scheme to funnel money to the Clinton operation through a number of businesspeople, including a man named "Charlie" Trie. In that case, 94 people either refused questioning, pled the Fifth Amendment, or left the country.

    During that period, McAuliffe helped a company named Loral Space get seats on official trade missions, and, reportedly with McAuliffe's intervention, the Clinton administration overruled national security officials to approve a Loral deal that gave China critical missile technology. Loral's CEO became the largest donor to the Democratic National Committee, where McAuliffe became chairman.

    In 2009, McAuliffe founded GreenTech Automotive, a manufacturer of electric vehicles. "If you have good green projects, there are billions of dollars that are looking for those projects," he said at the time. Soon after, McAuliffe received a package of special-interest "incentives" — loans, grants and targeted tax breaks — from state and local governments in Mississippi to build a plant there. The taxpayers' care package totaled at least $5 million. At the plant's ribbon-cutting, Bill Clinton was an honored guest.

  36. Police Stand Down Blamed

    Of course it was. If police were allowed to do their jobs, this never would have happened. They cancelled the assembly, calling it "illegal" even though they had a valid permit, and forced everyone to leave on a narrow walkway that was lined up with Antifa, while police stayed safely behind the barriers just watching all of the violence happen.

    They created the violence by this action; they knew what they were doing.
    All of the injuries and the death of spoiler-surfer girl is all local government's responsibility.


    ====


    “There was no police presence,’’ she said. “We were watching people punch each other; people were bleeding all the while police were inside of barricades at the park watching. It was essentially just brawling on the street and community members trying to protect each other.”

    Asked about the brawling and why police did not do more to control it, Brian Moran, Virginia’s secretary of public safety, said in an interview on Sunday that “it was a volatile situation and its unfortunate people resorted to violence.

    ’’ But, he said, “From our plan, to insure the safety of our citizens and property, it went extremely well.’’

    It went "extremely well". Suppression of free speech, constitutional rights and one dead, many injured--that's extremely well, Mr. Secretary of Public Safety?

    The sojourners are the original Soros Marxists to infiltrate the black church so obviously it all went well to them.

    My problem with white nationalists is that they either don't realize or ignore that blacks are the first victims to this cultural Marxism bullshit.

  44. He materialized like a ghost on the suave greens of California's La Costa Country Club - a graying, thickening memory of the man who wrote the unhappiest passage in U.S. political history. The occasion for the outing was a Teamster charity golf tournament, the players mostly men with Teamster titles and, in some few cases, police records.

    * Dozens of acquaintances of Nixon's, ranging from casual to intimate, were willing to discuss his situation with Newsweek and did - on the understandable condition that their names be withheld.

    * Haldeman insists that they are still friends - it is just that each is engrossed in his own memoirs and has nothing to talk to the to the other about. But Nixon, within his own circle, has taken to blaming Haldeman for a misstep fatal to both of them: wiring the White House to record all the president's conversations - not, as Nixon claims to have believed, just the important ones.

  45. COLLUSION GONE MISSING

    The latest Washington Post collusion story is different from the others. The story is “Trump campaign emails show aide’s repeated efforts to set up Russia meetings.” Last night Paul Mirengoff summarized and and deconstructed the story here.

    If you’ve been following the collusion hysteria, you won’t want to miss this story. The story comes in the accustomed form — under the byline of numerous Post heavy hitters (Tom Hamburger, Carol D. Leonnig and Rosalind S. Helderman with the assistance of Adam Entous, Alice Crites, Devlin Barrett, David Filipov, Philip Rucker and Ellen Nakashima), features the usual anonymous sources, and stands at one remove from the original documents — but this is a collusion story with a difference. The collusion has gone missing.

    The story is based on “20,000 pages of documents the Trump campaign turned over to congressional committees this month after review by White House and defense lawyers.” The Post reporters haven’t seen the documents themselves, but relevant parts have been read to them “by a person with access to them.” And that’s not all: “Two other people with access to the emails confirmed the general tone of the exchanges and some specific passages within them.” I guess that’s the way the Post heavy hitters were taught to do it in journalism school.

    The Post heavy hitters won’t come right out and say it, but those parts of the 20,000 pages that were read to them lack the whiff of collusion. The emails involving a volunteer campaign policy adviser demonstrate that proposed meetings with the Russians “generated more concern than excitement within the campaign[,]” which of course does not slow down the heavy hitters one bit.

    Again, that’s not all. Proposals sent to then campaign manager Paul Manafort were expressly rejected. “We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips [to Russia],” Manafort wrote.

    The Post solicited a comment from an unnamed spokesman for Manafort. The unnamed spokesman commented that the email chain provides “concrete evidence that the Russia collusion narrative is fake news.” That seems an entirely reasonable interpretation of the evidence presented in the story.


    Wary of readers who may need to brush up on ancient history, the Post heavy hitters add that Manafort’s “Virginia home was raided by FBI agents three weeks ago as part of an investigation by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III[.]” It’s amazing what you can do with nine reporters on a story like this.

  47. I think I have this right.

    The City had voted to take the statue down.

    Then the Nazi, KKK scum obtained a valid permit to hold a protest of this decision.

    Then, predictably, the antifa scum decided to show up to counter the Nazi/KKK scum.

    A big scrum broke out between the two sets of scum.

    The Police seem to have taken a temporary vacation.

    One of the Nazi scum from far away from some other state with a history of 'mental problems' took a page out of the muzzie playbook and turned his car into a homicide device.

    He will be holed up at taxpayer expense for a long long time.

    I assume the City's decision to take the statue down will stand as it ought to do, being duly passed by the elected office holders.

    2. If the police had controlled antifa and arrested lawbreakers and the mental case terrorist had not had his car beat on by antifa, perhaps a life and many injuries would have been saved.

    Wow, how deep. Humans have evolved by learning. They don't escape the womb quoting Cicero or snapping their fingers. My God, the brilliance of Obama is wilting.

    1. Oh great one, enlighten us on how the babies are born inside ISIS-besieged Deir ez-Zo, Syria.

      QUESTION

      During the year of 2014, under the rule of His Holiness, Barack Hussein, how were the children doing under the religion of love? Let's take a look , shall we?

      Oh dear, a turd in the tweet bowl!

      more than 100,000 people, perhaps a third or more civilians, died violently in conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and the Gaza Strip in 2014, making it one of the bloodiest years in the Middle East’s history.

      “Already in 2013 we all thought it had reached a level of violence and devastation that couldn’t get worse,” said Bente Scheller, Beirut-based Middle East director for the Heinrich Boll Foundation. “It became worse in every country.”

      The people of Syria suffered by far the highest number of deaths. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitoring group, at least 76,000 people died violently in Syria, nearly a quarter of them civilians, in the most deadly year of a conflict ignited by government violence against peaceful protesters in 2011.

      The struggle has since mushroomed into a complicated civil war pitting the regime of Bashar al-Assad against an array of rebel fighters, including powerful forces allied with al-Qaeda, who are also battling the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, the group known as Isis. Fighting in 2014 ravaged Syria and spread misery throughout the region.

      “The Syria crisis is the biggest humanitarian crisis we have faced in the past two decades,” said Juliette Touma, spokeswoman for the UN’s special envoy to Syria. “The human toll is so huge. More than half of Syria's population is in need of humanitarian assistance: 75 per cent of people in need are women and children. The impact the crisis in Syria is having on the region from a social, security and economic side is immense.”
