Apopka FL Starting to Lean Left

Lots of news coming out of Apopka Florida these last couple weeks. Much of the news is showing how our fair City is leaning much more leftward than in the past… From Richard Anderson back in the local news, to wastewater treatment problems, to the Task Force on violence report to veiled calls for Apopka to become an unofficial Sanctuary City, lots going on. For anyone who cares, and in no particular order, here goes:

The headline in this past Friday’s Apopka Chief, “Judge tosses city suit vs Richard Anderson”. The suit was dismissed for no particular reason, and the City has 20 days to file an amended complaint. Per City Attorney Shepard, The City will re-file to include other complaints as well. Never mind that Anderson, after leaving the scene of a serious accident with injury, was able to settle that suit, and also never mind he still faces criminal charges as a result of that same accident. How’s this for another complaint, Mr. Shepard. In February, 2016, it was discovered that Richard Anderson was not registered as a lobbyist to perform at least HALF of the job he was hired to perform for the City. In February 2016, I called for Mr. Anderson’s contract to be terminated immediately, and that he pay back the money he was paid under mostly false pretenses, and ethics investigations. The City did NOTHING and now, a year later, Mr. Anderson continues to cause our City to rack up HUGE legal bills because of his questionable ethics.

So, the consultant hired by the City to review problems at our wastewater treatment facility found “administrative shortcomings” at the facility. And most shocking, Mayor Joe’s special friend, Anuvia may be partially to blame because the organic material they are dumping from their fertilizer plant may be to much for the aging facility to handle. Guess that kinds of shoots the whole, “Mayor Land is to blame” spiel Mayor Joe has been spouting since these problems were first reported.

The City taxpayer funded Old Florida Festival once again, lost money. Mayor Joe said in an interview that making money on this festival was not a major goal, but instead, making sure everyone had fun. I guess that’s true, because the Festival was gutted this year to save money, and to offset any savings the City might have seen, they offered free admission to the event. Liberal logic and your tax dollars, at work.

Also, the City heard, and for those enterprising enough to read the 40 page report, The Task Force on Violence Report.  LOTS of liberal word salad and plenty of finger pointing (except, I noticed at the actual people causing the violence) and at the end of it all, a request for $1.8 million dollars to fund solutions to this problem. I’ve read this report at least 5 times, and am preparing a detailed analysis, from a conservative viewpoint. All I will say now, is that as ambitious and well-intentioned as this report and the people involved with it are, unless you get the buy-in from the community you are planing to “help”, you may as well set fire to that $1.8 million dollars. And Greg Jackson’s constant harping on CRA (community redevelopment), makes me wonder which office he is angling to run for this time. Or whose non-profit agency Mr. Jackson is really advocating for.

And coming from our School Board Representative, Christine Moore, a thinly veiled request that the schools and law enforcement take pity on undocumented immigrants, the politically correct term for ILLEGAL ALIENS.  I also noticed the Hope Community Center is sponsoring an Immigration Fair next Saturday to address concerns among other things, New immigration policy. NEW?? You mean enforcement of existing laws is new? Well, I guess, under Obama, who rarely enforced these laws, it would be new. For an excellent analysis of what SHOULD be done about illegal immigration, read Patti Bankson’s spot-on weekly column, “Anchor Babies and the 14th Amendment”, in this week’s Chief.

There must be a full-moon hanging over our City and it refuses to move. And it looks like, as we draw near the end of just the 2nd month of 2017, it’s going to be a long, crazy, bumpy ride.. Hang on to your seats, my friends… Here we go!

Apopka FL Starting to Lean Left

Despite the Elections Results, Lying liberals continue to rule the day

Three weeks into the Trump administration and the Democrats and Liberals, who before the November election warned Republicans and conservatives they BETTER accept the elections results, continue to protest, riot, destroy and are on the verge of anarchy. Paid protestors, who would normally be playing video games in  mommy and daddy’s spare bedroom, are protesting and twist EVERYTHING President Trump does and says. Sometimes they do not even know why they are participating in this or that protest.

The immigration executive order Trump signed, pausing travel into our Country from certain countries have garnered the most violent protests. The Seven countries listed on this pause are the SAME Countries that the liberal’s lord and savior, Obama listed in HIS travel ban in 2011. Does anyone recall any rioting over Obama’s bans in 2011? Does anyone even recall this ban? Presidents as far back as the failed Carter have instituted some version of a travel ban without riots breaking out yet when Trump does it all hell breaks loose. The dishonest, rotten to the core media continues to feed these destructive riots favorably, and somehow focus only  on families being pulled apart sob stories.They vilify Trump and other conservatives as evil, heartless monsters. Never mind the Executive order in question simply allows for enforcement of laws already on the books! Liberals NEVER allow truth to get in the way of a good story.

And now, ICE agents are finally allowed to enforce other immigration laws ALREADY on the books, by going after people who are in this Country illegally. Yet the lying media presents this story as “raids on undocumented people”, “undocumented people who are working and paying taxes”.  And the disruptive, rude free-for-alls that town hall meetings are turning into. At one meeting, one liberal tried blaming Republicans for the destructive  ObamaCare, and the death panels section within the law. Let’s be clear, the TAX known as ObamaCare was approved completely and ONLY by Democrats; and there is a “death panel” clause within the tax, although lying liberals would cleverly never call it that.

I was thinking this morning, even though every-day Americans spoke up through the elections in November that we had enough of liberalism and demanded a return to our Country’s founding principles, a return to the rule of law in our Country, things appear NO different than before November 8, 2016. Why? And then it hit me. Even though Republicans won the House, the Senate and the Presidency, we still do not have the Courts nor the Liberal, lying, rotten to the core media. THIS is what continues to fuel the narrative in the Country; THIS is what continues to tear at the fabric of our Nation; Liberals DO NOT CARE what happened on November 8.. they do not care what America thinks or wants. And as long as THEY control the narrative through the destructive, lying media and through bleeding heart liberal judges whose rulings are based not on legal justice but social justice, the REAL America, and hard working Americans everywhere will continue to lose.

The question is this: is REAL America strong  enough to combat the forces of evil in our own Country: the lying, rotten to the core media;  liberal judges who continue to impose their own agendas on the American people; the arrogant, self-righteous entertainment industry who insist only they know American values and “who we are”? We have to, we MUST! We must demand that the Republican leaders we voted into office lead the charge and fight back; we must defend the laws of our Country, we must also call out the lying media when they incite and inflame by their dishonest editing and reporting. Even one Democrat told his party enough was enough and admonished them to “grow up”.

President Trump is doing what he promised during his campaign, but he needs OUR help at the local levels, to combat the evil within and restore our Country to it’s Greatness!! Are you up to the challenge?
