GLASS CEILINGS SHATTERED IN 2016

GLASS CEILINGS SHATTERED IN 2016

Hillary Clinton – First Woman under FBI Investigation to lose a presidential election.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz – First Female to resign for tampering with a primary

Michelle Obama – First first lady to claim she has lost hope in her country

Donna Brazil – First woman to get fired from CNN for leaking debate questions

Why I cannot understand why liberals feel President Obama was the greatest president ever.

 

 

It seems as though the Liberals feel that President Obama has been the greatest president in history.  And these Liberals are still upset that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was not elected to continue President Obama’s legacy.  Instead the Liberals and the Media attack Donald L. Trump who actually has the interests of all the people no matter what one’s color of skin is.

 

We keep inquiring what President Obama has done for you and no one can seem to answer that question except that more people are on welfare and disability and food stamps.  After all the Economy has gone downhill with companies moving because of President Obama’s last eight years.  Where was the hope and change and wasn’t he awarded a Nobel Prize even though he bombed a hospital in the Middle East.

 

But what was President Obama’s legacy?

 

 

 

  • The Fast and Furious operation which placed guns America supplied into the hands of Mexican Drug Lords. If the guns were to have been used as bait to try and capture the drug lords, it did not work   Instead hundreds of Mexican citizens were killed along with Border Patrol agents.

 

  • President Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would not assist Ambassadore Christopher Stevens when he requested additional security in Libya. Every other foreign consulate moved their people out and Ambassador Stevens and others were left to die even knowing the dangers.  Obama and Clinton lied to family members of the fallen stipulating stating the attack on the Consulate had to do with a Video against Muslims.  Yet the truth came out later and neither Obama or Clinton were charged for what was done.  In fact Clinton stated “What difference does it make”. And 33,000 of Clinton’s e-mails disappeared.

 

  • The reason Obama and Clinton did nothing to assist and lied about what transpired in Benghazi was  because it would have caused a problem for Obama’s re-election.  His election was more important than the lives of those in Benghazi.

 

  • The United States assisted insurgent groups to take over a new American ally Muammar Gaddafi in the Arab Spring movement of 2012. As a result Lybia was overrun by hostile forces and ISIS.

 

  • Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act was one of the worse scandals for the American people. Not only did he lie that one could keep their doctors and have additional coverage such as pre-existing conditions and children at home covered until age 26, but he stated the program would be more reasonable so everyone could have great health care.  He then placed a fine for those who would not purchase coverage under the ACA.

 

  • Today only the rich or those covered under an Employer’s plan and for those who are on welfare subsidies can afford coverage under the act and the deductibles are extremely high as are the premiums so the average middle class person cannot afford ACA. Today the program is falling apart as the premiums are skyrocketing and and Insurers are exiting because they have taken great losses. Now the Republicans are working diligently to place coverage back into the private sector.

 

  • .President Obama has bowed to those in power in the Middle East and has apologized for America instead of being the proud leader of the free world.

 

  • Without Congress and Senate approval he formulated the Iran deal without securing those who were Americans held in prisons in Iran. President Obama sold the Americans a bill of goods that Iran could be trusted. He stated that Inspections could be made at any time of the Iran Nuclear Facilities but that did not transpire.  Instead Iran hates America and calls us the Great Satan, threatening our ships in the water and taking one of our boats and its sailors hostage.

 

  • Obama paid Iran $400 million ransom for American hostages without congressional approval.  Although he lied that it was not a ransom, the hostages were held up in a plane until the funds showed up in Iran.   It is not the American Foreign policy to pay ransom for hostages.

 

  • President Obama lied about Employment numbers as the GDP grew under 3%. The Bureau of Economic Analysis reported that in 2015 the GDP growth was 2.38%. That was the 10th year in a row that the growth came under 3%. 17.5% of the GDP accounted for Obamacare.

 

  • The Nation’s debt doubled to $19.8 trillion with President Obama adding more to the debt than all previous presidential administrations combined. Of the last 12 months of GDP $6.2 trillion or 45% of the debt was held by the public was owned by foreign investors, China and Japan.

 

  • President Obama included $ 50 billion for new infrastructure projects to be funded through the creation of a government-run infrastructure bank. He stated that these expenditures would put thousands of Americans back to work.  Instead, similar to the National Broadband scenario which went under, it created zero private sector jobs.  Furthermore money was placed in a slush fund for the Democratic Party with Union Allies.  Yet the inner cities remained in poverty with no jobs.

 

  • The Obama administration implemented extensive permitting, environment hurdles, public hearings and land acquisition problems so that it would take multiple years for a business to get started in the United States.  Many large corporation as a result of these hurdles left the United States taking away more jobs.

 

  • The taxation of businesses was one of the highest in the free world along with the implementation of Obamacare where businesses with 50 or more full time employees were required to provide insurance or pay a a fee of $2,000 per full time employee (excluding the first 30 employees). If only a few ended up with unaffordable coverage or if the coverage did not meet the minimum value standard the fee was $3,000 per employee for which the employer paid 1/12 of the annual totals for each month.

 

  • Although the feed did not apply to employers with 49 or less full time employees or for those working less than 30 hours a week, many employers then chose to change the status of full time employees to part-time employees. As such many in the work force no longer had coverage and worked more than one-part time job in order to make ends meet.  Yet this was a problem because many could not find additional work and ended up in poverty.

 

  • As of January 2017, the unemployment rate was recorded at 4.9% in August 2016. The number of unemployed persons was a fat 7.8 million and tha labor force participation rate stood at 62.8%.  Many stopped looking for jobs because none could be found and more had to go on disability, welfare and food stamps while homes went into foreclosure.  Those that turned 62 took early social security retirement benefits.  Yet even those money was taken from Social Security beginning with LBJ, and President Obama took the funds to utilize in Obamacare, those who have placed money in the fund along with their respective employers are told that there will be insufficient benefits for the future.   Social Security is not welfare but President Obama apparently felt that the older population were of little value and instead gave millions of dollars to countries that despise Americans.

 

  • Welfare is not threatened and illegal aliens who have come into this country; mainly Muslims, secure nice welfare benefits of $1,900 a month in accordance with information I have received from friends in the know. Furthermore these illegal aliens receive medical insurance as well as other benefits legal immigrants or citizens of the United States may not receive.   How many of you receive $1,900 a month and with free medical benefits?

 

  • All immigrant headed households, legal and illegal receive an average of $6,241 in welfare. This is 41% more than the $4,431 received by non-immigrant households on welfare according to statistics.  The total cost is over $103 billion in welfare benefits to households headed by immigrants.

 

  • Although President Bush should not have entered into the Iraq war, our Service Men won the battle. Yet in lieu of leaving our Service Men to protect Iraq, President Obama removed all from Iraq, beginning the formulation of ISIS.

 

  • Because there are no jobs, 72% of legal immigrant households with children accessed one or more welfare programs as compared to 52% of native households. In 2012 it was estimated that 62% used one or more welfare programs as compared to 30% of native households.

 

  • Solyndra was a premier example of the Obama administration’s poor business skills. Solyndra was a solar energy venture where the government threw $80 billion of taxpayer’s money away and like Broadband’s billions, it went down causing the Obama administration further political liabilities. The North Florida Broadband Association squandered $30 billion dollars of Obama’s stimulus. Country folks living in the boondocks were never considered to be the recipients of wired internet connections and after it failed the NFBA and its network was turned over to Affinity FL, a private company in September 29, 2013.

 

  • The General Services Administration manages and supports basic functions of many government departments. Yet this agency took care of itself first with lavish parties and useless projects.The GSA resisted oversight and accountability. When the press required proof of the overspending, Obama’s political operatives stymied the request and stripped watchdog, Judicial Watch of its media status.

 

  • The Obama administration allowed the IRS to target Tea Party and pro-life groups attempting to secure tax-exempt status. Obama’s Justice Department made a mockery of investigating the IRS even though they indeed delayed the processing of these groups’applications.

 

  • Hillary Clinton then Secretary of State sold 20% of America’s uranium stockpile, after a Russian bank paid Bill Clinton $500,000 for a speech. It was said that millions went into the Clinton foundation; however, Snopes attempts to discredit the amount.

 

  • Since 2013, the Obama administration has allowed 300,000 criminal aliens into the US. The administration undermined immigration enforcement and granted de facto amnesty to as many illegal aliens as possible.  President Obama also has not allowed law enforcement the ability to work with U.S. Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement to deport illegal criminals.  Many of these illegal aliens are involved in the drug and heroin trade providing a crisis in rural areas and local law-enforcement officers know they can do nothing about it.

 

  • In my opinion, during the Obama presidency, the racial difficulties between blacks and whites reached one of the highest levels ever. President Obama presided during the rise of Black Lives Matter and included the leaders for talks in the Whitehouse.  He can be accredited for the riots in Ferguson, Mo along with Eric Holder as well as the uprising in Baltimore.   Everything was falling apart because of the Obama Administration’s meddling.  Yet he stood for those with criminal actions who were black against the police force; However if there were black on white crimes, one would never hear of the incident.  Furthermore, how many Republican protestors have damaged cars and buildings as well as stealing during riots.    Yet there never was a word from the Obama administration to curb such violence in protests.

 

There was continual corruption in Obama’s cabinet and especially with Attorney General Loretta Lynch (meeting with Bill Clinton at the international airport to talk about grandchildren during the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails) and Obama’s first Attorney General Eric Holder who was in contempt of congress.

 

Redacted expense reports allegedly for security reasons push the known costs for vacations during the Obama’s reign in excess of $71 million which is over $10 million per year.

About General Mattis

When asked what he thinks about General Mattis
being considered for Secretary of Defense, Rob O’Neill (the man who killed Bin Laden), said, “General Mattis has a bear rug in his home but it is not dead, it is just afraid to move”.

A little story

 

Goodbye Grandpa

 

A father put his 3-year-old daughter to bed, told her a story and listened to her prayers which ended by saying, “God bless Mommy, God bless Daddy, God bless Grandma, and good-bye Grandpa.”

 

The father asked, “Why did you say good-bye Grandpa?”

 

The little girl said, “I don’t know daddy, it just seemed like the thing to do.”

 

The next day grandpa died. The father thought it was a strange coincidence.

 

A few months later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers which went like this, “God bless Mommy, God Bless Daddy and good-bye Grandma.”

 

The next day the grandmother died.

 

“Holy crap” thought the father, “this kid is in contact with the other side.”

 

Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed, the dad heard her say, “God bless Mommy and good-bye Daddy.”

 

He practically went into shock. He couldn’t sleep all night and got up at the crack of dawn to go to his office.

 

He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch and watched the clock. He figured if he could get by until midnighthe would be okay. He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day he stayed there, drinking coffee, looking at his watch and jumping at every sound. Finallymidnightarrived; he breathed a sigh of relief and went home.

 

When he got home his wife said, “I’ve never seen you work so late. What’s the matter?”

 

He said, “I don’t want to talk about it, I’ve just spent the worst day of my life.”

 

She said, “You think you had a bad day, you’ll never believe what happened to me. This morning my golf pro dropped dead in the middle of my lesson!”

 

 

 

Gov. Jan Brewer explains the context of illegal immigrants

 

Smart Lady!

 

 

 

Yes, you have to love an American like her!

Former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vs. the Phoenix Suns

The owner of the Phoenix Suns basketball team,

Robert Sarver, came out strongly opposing

AZ’s new immigration laws.

Arizona’s Governor, Jan Brewer,

released the following statement in response to Sarver’s criticism .

“What if the owners of the Suns discovered that

hordes of people were sneaking into games without paying?

What if they had a good idea who the gate-crashers are

but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed

to ask these folks to produce their ticket stubs,

thus non-paying attendees couldn’t be ejected.

Furthermore, what if Suns’ ownership was expected to

provide those who sneaked in with complimentary

eats and drink?

And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher

became ill or injured, the Suns had to provide

free medical care and shelter?”

IT NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE ME THE LENGTHS THAT A CORRUPT CITY, INCLUDING WHITE SPRINGS, WILL GO THROUGH OVER A FEW MESSLY DOLLARS.

 

Joel Edward CHANDLER, Appellant,
v.
The CITY OF GREENACRES, Appellee.

No. 4D13-377.
District Court of Appeal of Florida, Fourth District.
June 11, 2014.
1082*1082 Edward M. Mullins, Annette C. Escobar & Regan N. Kruse of Astigarraga Davis Mullins & Grossman, P.A., Miami, and John W. McKnight of The Law Offices of John W. McKnight, Tampa, for appellant.

Pamela S. Terranova, Greenacres, for appellee.

WARNER, J.

The trial court dismissed appellant’s petition for writ of mandamus to compel production of public records, finding that the petition failed to show appellant’s standing to bring the action. Accepting the well-pled allegations as true, as we must, the petition showed that appellant had sent appellee an e-mail request for documents. No more is required to show standing. We therefore reverse.

As alleged in the petition for writ of mandamus, “On November 22, 2011, [appellant] made a public records request by e-mail to the City….” The petition quoted from this e-mail, which was attached to the petition and on its face showed that it was sent from leo.namesxxx@xxxxx.[1] Although the attached e-mail did not include a person’s name, the body of the e-mail used the pronouns “I” and “me.” The petition also alleged that appellant had sent three other e-mails to city employees requesting documents. These e-mails, also attached as exhibits to the petition, showed they were sent from the same e-mail address.

The city clerk responded to the e-mails by notifying the sender that the sender must fill out a form on the city’s web page for obtaining public documents. No form was filled out, and five months later, a sender from the same e-mail address again e-mailed the city and asked when the sender would receive the documents. Again, the clerk informed the sender that the city’s form needed to be filled out in order for the city to determine the cost of production of the documents.

A month later, appellant filed a petition for writ of mandamus demanding production of certain public records, and also seeking attorney’s fees and costs under the Public Records Act. The petition alleged that appellant had sent the e-mails and that he was a “person” as used in the Act, section 119.07(1), Florida Statutes (2012). The trial court issued an order to show cause directing the city to provide access to the requested public records or serve a written response showing why the petition should not be granted. The city moved to dismiss the petition, arguing that appellant lacked standing to bring the petition because it did not allege that appellant was a “stakeholder in interest” in the controversy nor demonstrate that appellant had a connection with the e-mail address from which the requests were sent. It also argued that appellant needed to fill out the city’s form in order to secure an estimate of the cost of production. However, after appellant filed the petition, the city provided him an estimate of $0.90 to obtain the public records requested in the e-mail. 1083*1083 The trial court granted the city’s motion and dismissed the petition, prompting this appeal.

This court reviews an order dismissing a petition for writ of mandamus de novo. Barnett v. Antonacci, 122 So.3d 400, 404 (Fla. 4th DCA 2013).

Florida’s Public Records Act requires public records custodians to allow inspection and copying of public records “by any person desiring to do so.” § 119.07(1)(a), Fla. Stat. (2013); see also Art. I, § 24, Fla. Const. (providing right to access public records and meetings). Mandamus is “an appropriate remedy to compel the timely production of public records request[ed] under Chapter 119.” Town of Manalapan v. Rechler, 674 So.2d 789, 790 (Fla. 4th DCA 1996).

“A party petitioning for a writ of mandamus must establish a clear legal right to performance of the act requested, an indisputable legal duty, and no adequate remedy at law.” Smith v. State, 696 So.2d 814, 815 (Fla. 2d DCA 1997). Under Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.630(b), a petition for writ of mandamus must “contain the facts on which the plaintiff relies for relief, a request for the relief sought, and, if desired, argument in support of the petition with citations of authority.” Id. at 816. “If the complaint shows a prima facie case for relief, a trial court must issue an alternative writ of mandamus,” and “[o]nce an alternative writ has issued, the burden is on the respondent to come forth with facts upon which it refused to perform its legal duty.” Id.

To establish a clear legal right to the performance of an act, a petitioner must establish standing. “Standing is a legal concept that requires a would-be litigant to demonstrate that he or she reasonably expects to be affected by the outcome of the proceedings, either directly or indirectly.” Hayes v. Guardianship of Thompson, 952 So.2d 498, 505 (Fla.2006). “In determining whether to dismiss a complaint for lack of standing, we must confine our review to the four corners of the complaint, draw all inferences in favor of the pleader, and accept all well-pled allegations in the complaint as true.” Gordon v. Kleinman, 120 So.3d 120, 121 (Fla. 4th DCA 2013) (quoting Wheeler v. Powers, 972 So.2d 285, 288 (Fla. 5th DCA 2008)). The exhibits attached to a complaint “are encompassed within the four corners of the complaint and must be considered therewith” on a motion to dismiss. Abele v. Sawyer, 750 So.2d 70, 74 (Fla. 4th DCA 1999); see also Fla. R. Civ. P. 1.130(b) (“Any exhibit attached to a pleading shall be considered a part thereof for all purposes.”).

In the present case, the city argues that appellant’s petition was properly dismissed because it failed to establish standing, since the petition failed to establish an “identifiable connection” between appellant and the e-mail address at issue. However, the petition alleged that appellant had made a public records request via e-mail, and attached the e-mails sent from the e-mail address at issue. The clear implication is that this e-mail address belongs to appellant, or at least that appellant utilized the address to make the public records request. See Gordon, 120 So.3d at 121 (on motion to dismiss, court must “draw all inferences in favor of the pleader”). This is all that is required to establish standing to file a petition for mandamus seeking the production of public records. While the appellant will still be required to prove the allegations of the complaint, i.e., that he sent the e-mail requests for public records, his petition sufficiently alleged standing to preclude dismissal.

The city also maintains that the petition failed to state a claim for relief, and thus 1084*1084 the trial court correctly dismissed the case. Specifically, the city argues, based on the uncontested facts alleged in the petition, that it did not improperly deny access to the requested records, but rather wanted to obtain payment prior to furnishing the records. The city contends that the requirement for the requester to fill out the city’s form was merely an attempt to obtain an “address or other identifiable source of payment of the associated costs.”

Although section 119.07(1), Florida Statutes, allows a custodian to impose “reasonable conditions” on the disclosure of public records, the Florida Supreme Court has narrowly interpreted this phrase as:

refer[ring] not to conditions which must be fulfilled before review is permitted but to reasonable regulations that would permit the custodian of the records to protect them from alteration, damage, or destruction and also to ensure that the person reviewing the records is not subjected to physical constraints designed to preclude review.

Wait v. Fla. Power & Light Co., 372 So.2d 420, 425 (Fla.1979).

The Public Records Act authorizes a custodian to collect a fee, prior to disclosing the records, for the cost of copying the records. § 119.07(4), Fla. Stat. (2013) (providing the custodian “shall furnish a copy… of the record upon payment of the fee prescribed by law”). The custodian may also collect a special service charge for requests that “require extensive use of information technology resources or extensive clerical or supervisory assistance….” § 119.07(4)(d), Fla. Stat. (2013). However, when a custodian receives a written request by mail for public records and for information regarding copying costs, the custodian has a duty to respond with the amount of the fee and, once the requester has forwarded the fee, to produce the records. Woodard v. State, 885 So.2d 444, 445-46 (Fla. 4th DCA 2004); see also Wootton v. Cook, 590 So.2d 1039, 1040 (Fla. 1st DCA 1991).

“[T]he Public Records Act does not condition the inspection of public records on any requirement that the person seeking to inspect records reveal that person’s background information.” Bevan v. Wanicka, 505 So.2d 1116, 1118 (Fla. 2d DCA 1987). Furthermore, “[a] requester’s motive for seeking a copy of documents is irrelevant” to the requester’s right to access the records. Microdecisions, Inc. v. Skinner, 889 So.2d 871, 875 (Fla. 2d DCA 2004) (finding “the fact that a person seeking access to public records wishes to use them in a commercial enterprise does not alter his or her rights under Florida’s public records law”); see also Warden v. Bennett, 340 So.2d 977, 978 (Fla. 2d DCA 1976) (finding the fact that the requester “intended to use [the public records] to help her in her labor organizing was irrelevant”).

We agree with the Attorney General that “[a] person requesting access to or copies of public records, therefore, may not be required to disclose his [or her] name, address, telephone number or the like to the custodian, unless the custodian is required by law to obtain this information prior to releasing the records.” Op. Att’y Gen. Fla. 92-38 (1992) (in footnote 14, giving example of section 320.05, Florida Statutes, which requires DHSMV to record the name and address of any person who requests or receives information from a motor vehicle registration record); see also Op. Att’y Gen. Fla. (May 27, 2011) (informal opinion) (reiterating that an anonymous requestor may not be forced to disclose his or her name, address, telephone number, or similar identifying 1085*1085 information).[2]

If a public agency believes it is necessary to provide written documentation of a public records request, it may require the custodian to complete an appropriate form or document. However, the person requesting the information cannot be required to provide such documentation in order to inspect or receive copies of public records. As the court in Sullivan v. City of New Port Richey, [No. 86-1129CA (Fla. 6th Cir.Ct. May 22, 1987), affirmed without opinion, 529 So.2d 1124 (Fla. 2d DCA 1988)] recognized, a requestor’s failure to complete a city form required for access to documents does not authorize the custodian to refuse to honor a request to inspect or copy public records…. The duty of a custodian to safeguard records is not sufficient to justify the imposition of an additional condition, which might for some have a chilling effect on access to public records.

Op. Att’y Gen. Fla. 91-76 (1991) (emphasis added) (footnotes omitted).

In sum, the city could not properly condition disclosure of the public records, to the then-anonymous requester on filling out the city’s form and giving an “address or other identifiable source for payment of the associated costs.” The city could have sent an estimate of costs through e-mail to the requester just as it could through regular mail, had the request been made via paper by an anonymous requester. Requiring appellant to provide further identifying information prior to disclosure could have a chilling effect on access to public records and is not required by the Public Records Act. Therefore, we reject the city’s contention that the petition failed to state a cause of action.

For the foregoing reasons, we reverse and remand for further proceedings.

MAY and LEVINE, JJ., concur.

WS Works for a Community Center because they need to appease the citizens for whom they have violated their oaths.

In the Jasper News, the Hamilton County Board of County Commissioners has submitted potential projects to present to Senator Bill Monford and Representative Elizabeth Porter.  One of the projects after securing a much needed Fire Station in Jennings is a community center in White Springs.

Since our council members Willie Jefferson, Rhett Bullard and Tanja Brown  have done nothing for the people in White Springs.   These three need the power of their office to provide special strokes to special folks, especially their own family friends and others who may be important to them in some way.

While paperwork has been submitted through the Town of White Springs to the County, for grants, lets review some of the corruption these three have used  only for their own benefit and against the people of White Springs.

 

  • Tom Moffses diligently worked with Councilwoman Helen Miller to secure, I believe, a grant of some $60,000 in the “Invest in Children Program”. This program would have provided an after school program for Children including food and activities, among other benefits.   Along with our Town Manager, our esteemed Mayor, John Rhett Bullard, esq, Council persons Willie Jefferson, Deputy Sheriff and Tanja Brown, assumed Welfare recipient, kyboshed the program and refused to assist the working and less fortunate Citizens of White Springs.  They just did not wish to bother with the program, even though Tom Moffses had the building next to the school painted and refurbished for use of such programs.   It is a shame that we have voted in council members who only care about themselves and not the Citizens of White Springs.

 

  • Joe Griffin produced a budget which eliminated only one police officer, but added one additional staff member as is required in our Charter. Joe’s budget saved approximately $100,000 which could have reduced your sewer bills by a great sum.  Currently your sewer and water bills are paying over $50,000 of the General Fund for office Staff.   The first year, Rhett Bullard was fearful he would not receive votes, so they lowered your sewer bill by $5.00; the second year, it was only under $3.00, most of which would have to be paid for  an increase in garbage pickup.

 

 

  • Our White Springs police officers have their hands tied by these council members who continually are hindered from doing their legal justice for all. Willie Jefferson, in the meantime, makes certain his son only receives probation and his son never had to spend any time in jail, because of the utilization of a Sheriff’s yellow bond.  Jefferson has also assisted others in not being incarcerated while letting the average citizen who does far less, spend time in jail.  So, tell me; Does Willie really care about the rest of you?   Is this community center a ploy to make certain you vote for him because he and the other two council members have done so much wrong toward our citizens?

 

  • The Town had a function at the same time as someone had rented the current community center. Tanja Brown had no consideration for the lessee but rather wished to take all the Tables and Chairs for the Town function.  She was rude to the Lessee as she has been to others in the Town saying what she wishes due to the fact that she has a Deputy Sheriff and an Attorney on her side and that is fine with the former two.  It shows how much respect they have for the Citizens of this Community.  None!   And speaking of none, as Joe Griffin has been fighting for your rights, Ms. Brown basically said no one has to listen to him because of her dislike of Joe Griffin and myself, Karin.  In fact you will recall, with both Joe’s and my business experience, and experience with festivals, we were declined as volunteers for the Town of White Springs.  Brown was the first to object loudly and the Camels in the back of the room were happy as a result.

 

  • Joe Griffin placed an ethics complaint against Rhett Bullard based on the fact that Bullard allowed Stacy Tebo to breach her contract. Tebo did not change her primary residence to Lake City as promised but rather resides in Orange City where she spends long weekends.  Our Charter not only requires a primary residence within a proximity of White Springs but requires the Town Manager to work the usual hours of business and to assist on weekends if there is a problem.  The Ethics Commissions stated that this was a Management Problem and although there was a violation, it was not one the Commission could use but that the Council Members should discuss the violation with Rhett Bullard.  Yet, you know, there would be a 3/2 vote because Brown and Jefferson would never chastise their meal ticket Mayor.

 

  • I believe strongly that the three worked against Nikki Williams being elected. And, we found that the early voting ballot box was taken by Tomlinson to her home before going to the voting building.  What was the reason?  You probably could guess.   They did not wish Nikki Williams to be elected and Nikki may have had more votes to begin with but ended up with two or three less.

 

 

  • I also believe Willie Jefferson worked against Mr. Fred Robinson, who was qualified to apply for Town Manager by his refraining from attending the meeting so that Mr. Robinson’s vote tally was less with only four out of five councilpersons voting and an average taken. We are used to Willie’s fabrications and promises and if you believe him, you better open your eyes in the future.

 

  • I really respected Arthur Natteal who also ran for council. Yet the fix was in from the prior year.  The three, Bullard, Jefferson and Brown have had secret meetings so that the three would always be voted in, but unfortunately this has not been able to be proven, because some people are fearful of mentioning it or do not realize that these meetings in the dark are corruption in its finest..  Arthur did not stand a chance and although I am certain he would not believe the corruption, it would have been nice to have fresh blood in the Council.

 

Many of you treat the Council Members as if they are deity.  You look up to them and feel they can do no wrong.  But understand, they are no different than you are except that in a Town they may hide their corruption and they feel you will accept it, possibly with fear of repercussions from the police if you do not agree.  Yet, of late under the direction of Rhett Bullard, an attorney, he is picking and choosing what he will obey in the charter.  For instance:

  • If Laws are not obeyed, any complaint relative to the law must be addressed by the Council relating to Robert’s rules of Order. The Charter stipulates Robert’s Rules of Order must be utilized at meetings.  Rhett Bullard does not believe Robert’s Rules of Order need to be utilized even though the Charter as well as the Florida Bar use of Robert’s Rules of Order.  He feels there are too many rules.   Shouldn’t politicians be ethical and follow the laws other people must abide by?  In other words, the Council will not hear or address your complaints and we have a Town Manager who won’t even speak to you but rather sits in her office doing what, we do not know.

 

  • Ordinances are not obeyed and those that are pertain only to those the Council does not respect.

 

The Three are not Deity and it is time that you voted for people who may give a damned about the Citizens of White Springs.

We currently have the Eco Center and the Women’s Center/Community Center and were supposed to have a building which was hurricane/windstorm proof, which some modulars would provide.  Yet, there is consideration of building this center where the old Carver school site, which currently has much water drainage and would require fill.

POTUS doubles down on Voter fraud and I’ll bet he will be found correct.

With the Media questioning President Trumps claims of voter fraud…well, it is not over. What we will find probably is that POTUS will actually find what he believes. He has an uncanny way of knowing things of which most media are in disbelief. Here is POTUS’s Tweet:
 
Trump tweeted: “I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and…. even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!”
President Trump has been criticized continually and his comments have been found to be correct.  We might as well investigate this as well especially when so many illegal aliens have used their driver’s licenses and other criteria to vote when in fact they are not citizens.
