Re: your story about  Virginia Beach member Shannon Kane using the fire department employees as her own labor force to erect her campaign signs in violation of the law. 

I don’t see what the problem is:  She is only following the lead of Mayor ‘Conflict-of-Interest’ Will Sessoms in betraying her public trust.

Extrapolating it further (e.g. Hillary Clinton) ‘After all what difference does it make?’

But another problem is brought to light.  Her Fire Dept. lackey, William Bailey, head of the fire fighters union, is drawing disability because he can’t work for the city, but can erect signs for her.  Is that right?  Should his disability payments be investigated?

Sincerely,

Martin Kane

Dallas police had to follow orders to not wear protective gear because it "might appear to be confrontational". Police died. 

Police everywhere are being subjected to orders from mayors, etc.,  to NOT stop looting/rioting, or to NOT apprehend protesters who break the law. They endure having things thrown at them while they stand looking powerless during protests.

Let your local police and sheriff's offices know that you appreciate them and their officers. And tell them we don't need federal intervention to keep the peace. We need to keep our community police local and independent.

I hate to bring this up, but Ramadan begins on Monday, June 6, 2016 and ends on Tuesday, July 5, 2016.

You can anticipate a bloom of Muslim jihad attacks, both in the USA and Europe on "soft targets." That will include malls, beaches, schools in session and, yes, government offices.

Oh, I'm not conjuring-up this advice. ISIS told us that they were going to raise hell during Ramadan!

[Open letter to VB Mayor “I don’t know a conflict  when I see one” Sessoms] … 

OK, Mr. Mayor of Virginia Beach, Will "No Contest" Sessoms, how about you show some leadership and tell the feds to go pound sand. 

In my estimation, we are going to spend $330 MILLION on a light rail line that will not reduce traffic congestion according to the project's Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). 

Why not use that money to keep our little girls safe when they go to the bathroom? Why not reject federal funding if the feds demand such repugnant changes. [Click Read More below]
