Military Order of the Purple Heart



Military Order of the Purple Heart Announces Suspension of its National Service Program

Closure of the MOPH National Service Program has been made necessary by failure of the Purple Heart Foundation, the fundraising arm of the Organization, to be able to raise sufficient funds to sustain operation of the Service Program and a number of other programs of the Order.  Faced with a dramatic reduction of 50% of the prior year’s operating budget, already well below earlier years, the MOPH has been left with no choice other than to dramatically reduce expenditures for its outreach programs.

The "Military Order of the Purple Heart of the U.S.A. Inc.," (MOPH) was formed in 1932 for the protection and mutual interest of all combat wounded veterans and active duty men and women who have received the decoration.  Chartered by the Congress, The MOPH is unique among Veteran Service Organizations in that all its members were wounded in combat or by an act of international terrorism.

My question to Florida Governor Rick Scott?



Mr. Scott  (soon to be unemployed),



explain on TV if you can
just how you a loner,
will be able to do what

hundreds of senators
and

hundreds of House of Representatives
have not been able to do if elected?
Remembering that

the Supreme Court
has already ruled on this!
Also
One cannot
take this from the poor and give to the rich!
And
Lord knows one cannot
take this from the rich to give to the poor!

Lock her up Lack him up?


James Comey bashing Trump, James Comey bashing Hillary.

Once again I say to you,


“What’s good for the Goose is good for the Gander”!

A short eleven Days before the election James Comey, he said,

“For the good of the country”

He opened up Hillary’s Emil Questioning again in the hope that the Independents, Undecided and some Democrats would fall off the back of the fence they were sitting on!

And as you can see, it worked!

As you may also have notices,

HE FOUND NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!

Since the day his master fired him he has been singing a different song!

Now

 “For the good of the country”

He wants the Hillary supporters to help him impeach Trump!

A 7’ FBA agent that took down the mob looks a little foolish groveling an apology in the news.

James Comey needs to 'spell the beans' on trump

before trump meets Robert Mueller!

Crazed Dictators understand brute strength!



Crazed Dictators like
Bashar Assad,

Vladimir Putin
ISIS
and

Sayyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei
understand is pure strength!

They think the new guy a Wuss!
They all feared President Barrack Obama.

President Barrack Obama did not attack because
he respects our laws,
not the newest law makers,
the laws!

Unlike the wannabe dictator in the White House, President Barrack Obama did not attack
because his
‘wannabe lawmakers’
in congress
would not give him their permission!

President Barrack Obama or (President Hillary Clinton)
would have had many more countries joining in
because other countries use to be our friends!

The only message a crazed dictator understands is brute strength something the guy in the White House will never have,
unless on Tweeter.


Syrian airstrikes not expected to weaken Bashar Assad's brutal grip on power

The strikes on Syria’s chemical warfare facilities Saturday will not significantly weaken Bashar Assad’s brutal grip on power, which has been expanding in recent years, or change the U.S. strategy of defeating the Islamic State, U.S. officials and analysts said.

Look Floridians for better gun control



Cities and Counties Pushing Back Against State Law Limiting Local Gun Regulations

FlaglerLive | April 12, 2018

Less than two months after a 19-year-old gunman shot dead 14 students and three faculty members at a Broward County high school, city and county officials in parts of Florida are pushing back against a state firearm law they say has created a chilling effect on their ability to respond to constituents’ demands.


Wow look Floridians with a brain are now coming forward to help save our children, elders and themselves from AK 15’s, AR 47’s and so on, from people looking to harm others, what a concept!

However, there are still many convinced that we are all saved by the (2) Amendment?

Want to end the violence?
Punish the lazy nitwits that allow criminals to steal their guns!

Unify the weapons Laws.

While tighten up the weapons laws, like for instance, weapons bought in other states and countries are not permitted in your state!

Crimes committed with stolen weapons double the punishment.

Crimes committed with bought weapons more than once from the same seller, double the punishment to the seller also!
LOCK EM UP!

What is the fuss all about with Facebook?


What is the fuss all about with Facebook?
Your personal private information that's what!
How Hillary and the ‘Citizens of the Unites States’
got 
(rudely violated to say the least),
by the
Russians/Facebook/Donald Trump campaign!
What is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a British political consulting firm which combines data mining, data brokerage, and data analysis with strategic communication for the electoral process.

It was started in 2013 as an offshoot of

the
SCL Group.

Reported


 In a blog post,

Facebook's Chief Technology Officer Mike Schroepfer
said
the company believes data
from up to 87 million people
was
"improperly shared"
with
Cambridge Analytica,

the consulting firm who received data on users and their networks from a researcher who developed an app that captured the information. Facebook banned Cambridge Analytica, the researcher and a former employee from the platform in March.

What is Global Science Research?
last week released


a “new publication that offers guidance on conducting research responsibly in a research environment that is increasingly international and multidisciplinary.” https://www.unh.edu/research/blog/2016/02/new-resource-conducting-global-science-responsibly

P.S.

What ever happened to the rests of the founders of the original face book?

Facebook was launched on February 4, 2004,
by

The founders initially limited the website's membership to Harvard students.

What happened in the Cambridge Analytica scandal and what steps Facebook is taking to ensure that it doesn't happen again. 

Facebook and Cambridge Analytica are the two main actors in an
that touches on the Trump campaign,

millions of Facebook users
and
even two presidential elections in Kenya.

It's complicated, so here's a breakdown.

Why are Facebook and Cambridge Analytica in the news?
In a nutshell,

because the personal data of
50 million people was pulled from Facebook
by a company
contracted by Cambridge Analytica

and used for ... we're not sure exactly what.

(Facebook later said the number may have been even higher: up to 87 million users.)

The third-party firm, Global Science Research, used a clicky personality quiz


to get people to interact with the app,

which then


of that user, and also the same data relating to all their friends --
typically 200-300 other people per user. 
WHY?

Security for EPA chief comes at a steep cost to taxpayers


Security for EPA chief comes at a steep cost to taxpayers

Regardless of our
political affiliation
my friends!


WE need to rid this country of the
greedy, selfish, infestation in our government,
while we still have a government and a country!


Just one of many that need to be on our chopping block!

Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt’s concern with his safety came at a steep cost to taxpayers as his swollen security detail blew through overtime budgets and at times diverted officers away from investigating environmental crimes.

Altogether, the agency spent millions of dollars for a 20-member full-time detail that is more than three times the size of his predecessor’s part-time security contingent.

Pruitt apparently did not consider that upgrade vital to his safety when taxpayers weren’t footing the bill for his ticket.

But on weekend trips home for Sooners football games, when taxpayers weren’t paying for his ticket, the EPA official said Pruitt flew coach.

The prior head of Pruitt’s security detail, Eric Weese, was demoted last year after he refused Pruitt’s demand to use the lights and sirens on his government-owned SUV to get him through Washington traffic to the airport and dinner reservations.

President Donald Trump offered a full-throated defense of Pruitt in a tweet Saturday night.

7 Misleading Things EPA Chief Scott Pruitt Said In His Interview With Time

In a rare mainstream media interview, the nation’s top environmental regulator blows some smoke.


Promise
Clean up air pollution


Pruitt often praises the improvements in U.S. air quality since the Clean Air Act was passed in the early 1970s.

But he also says Obama should have done more to meet existing standards before issuing newer, tighter limits on pollutants, such as a 2015 ozone standard that drew opposition from business groups.

In Pruitt's own words

“One-hundred-twenty million people in this country live in areas that don’t meet air quality standards. That’s what the previous administration left us with,”

Pruitt told a Heritage Foundation event in October.

In line with his promise


  • Plans to keep EPA’s existing standards for nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide, which cause respiratory problems and acid rain.


  • Advanced or approved a higher number of state implementation plans for cutting pollution than the Obama administration did in its first eight months.

Not in line

  • Missed a key deadline for implementing Obama’s 2015 ozone pollution limits and has not indicated when EPA will require polluted areas to take action. Instead formed an ozone task force.
  • Moved to rescind Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which would have reduced planet-warming carbon emissions and harmful air pollutants from coal plants.
  • Plans to ease Obama’s auto pollution standards.
  • Delayed the legal defense of Obama’s standards for mercury and air toxics from power plants.
  • Halted an Obama-era order to prevent states from exempting power plants, refineries and chemical manufacturers from pollution standards when they are starting up, shutting down or malfunctioning.
  • Defended a White House budget proposal that would cut money for state regulators who test air quality and carry out federal laws – despite his public vow to push for funding.

In Pruitt's own words
In line with his promise


  • Suggested a top-10 list of priority sites for the agency to aggressively address.


  • Ordered all Superfund cleanup plans costing more than $50 million to get his personal approval.


  • Issued a task force list of 42 recommendations for the Superfund program, including steps to speed up the assessment, review and decision processes.


  • Ordered two companies to pay $115 million to clean up the San Jacinto Superfund site in Houston, one of two sites significantly damaged by flooding from Hurricane Harvey.

Not in line

  • Signed off on a White House budget proposal that would strip $330 million from the $1.1 billion Superfund program and cut funding for the Justice Department to enforce cases.
  • Has endorsed further staff and resource cuts that could make it more difficult to expedite cleanups.

MSNBC Morning Joe 04/06.2018 trade wars


Morning Joe - Hillary won by 17 million votes

Even Morning Joe is now admitting that Hillary Clinton won the Whitehouse by (around 17 million votes);

The MSNBC’s Morning Joe Show mercilessly beat up on Hillary and the Democrats all during the elections.

Is finely admitting that Hillary was the actual winner.

So what are we going to do about this?

Today the guy in the Whitehouse is cutting his staunch supporters off at the knees!

100 billion trade wars hurt all of his supporters!

Trump doubles down on potential trade war with China!


Hurts the countries farmers and manufacturing!

Trumps war is going to trickle down to also with Japan, South Korea, and seven or eight other countries, for will Trumps followers feel about him now?

WASHINGTON

President Trump said Thursday the United States would consider slapping an additional $100 billion in tariffs on the Chinese, on top of the $50 billion the White House has already authorized, escalating a trade dispute with China.

Mr. Trump said in a statement that he was responding to “unfair retaliation” by China, which published a list on Wednesday of $50 billion in American products that would be hit by tariffs, including soybeans and pork, a direct reaction to the $50 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods that the White House detailed on Tuesday.

“Rather than remedy its misconduct, China has chosen to harm our farmers and manufacturers,” Mr. Trump said, adding that he has instructed the United States trade representative to determine if another $100 billion in tariffs were warranted and, “if so, to identify the products upon which to impose such tariffs.”

The threat came one day after some of Mr. Trump’s advisers tried to calm markets and tamp down fears of a trade war between the world’s two largest economies, saying that the tariff threats were just the first step in a negotiation process. Mr. Trump said in his statement that the potential for new tariffs would not preclude discussions with the Chinese “to protect the technology and intellectual property of American companies and American people,” but the threat of new tariffs is unlikely to make that already tough task any easier.
