Something stinks in the White House

Three major scandals have arisen in our government. The intense interest in resolving the blame for these scandals is moving at a snail’s pace. It is understandable why the results are moving so slowly, as these are a great black eye on the present administration. In the investigations, there have been a lot of stonewalling. People can’t remember, and some refuse to answer questions. Whom are they covering for?

I have an opinion that probably will not be popular with those who support the current administration and party in the White House.

Looking back at Chicago and the gangster era, attempts by the government to indict the mob heads were almost impossible. The reason? There was no paper trail to connect the mob leaders to their lieutenants and hit men. The mob leaders did everything by word of mouth so there would be no connection. The government managed to get some put in prison — not for the crimes they had committed, but for income tax evasion.

My theory is that it will almost be impossible to tie President Obama to any of these scandals because he issued instructions by word of mouth. The same may go with those immediately under him. Only those who may be a third step down may be paying the price for the corruption that has invaded this White House. This makes Obama coming out smelling like a rose, while his henchmen take the fall for him.

However, it is going to take a long time to open up the trail to those responsible for handing down the instructions in all three of these scandals. Democrats will circle their wagons around this administration because they know the damage that will be done if it eventually entails the former secretary of state, the DOJ and President Obama.

Basically, and I don’t think I am alone in this, something stinks to high heaven. We have an administration that has arrogantly stomped on the Constitution of the United States because it knows that a majority of those voting are not involved in issues. It is sad when news reporters interview college students and they can’t even tell you who the vice president is, nor the secretary of state during the Benghazi murders. These are the young people who came to the forefront in Obama’s re-election. Ignorance is not always bliss, and the adage of “what you don’t know can’t hurt you” is a fable.

Liberty-loving Americans must wake up and take a stand, regardless of political affiliation. Our country’s liberty is at stake. We have a biased media that won’t print nor broadcast the facts, as they circle their wagons around this corrupt administration. Our only hope is that God-fearing Americans will shout and bring this monstrosity to a climax, with those responsible being indicted and, if necessary, impeached.

May God help us, for we are in grave danger of being taken over by uncontrolled socialism and our constitutional liberties perishing.

Tipton County pays big price for turbines

Industrial wind turbines have cost Tipton County a lot.

Tipton County is no longer beautiful from any view.

The love, joy and peace has faded away.

While chasing the wind, no one was minding the store.

Scandals in government and its leaders cost taxpayers extra money.

Secrets and conflicts of interest cost loss of trust and respect.

E.ON officials should have been a wind farm information desk. The people were given attitude, ignored, stressed and given no hope because no one was willing to listen.

They were and are forced to live among industrial turbines. For what, costly so-called green energy?

Even worse, division of communities, loss of longtime friendships, families divided, and arrogance, telling people to leave if they don’t like the change.

Sounds friendly! Everyone puts their pants on the same way: one leg at a time.

Money, control and influence have ruled Tipton County for years. Is it working? It’s still on the decline. Industrial wind turbines — is that truly the answer?

There are no winners in this battle.

There is no foundation when we have lost humility! A high price to pay for industrial turbines.
