Surveillance is the act of removing transparency from one person while operating under a veil of secrecy yourself. Surveillance is a one-sided exploitation of cultural violence, like a street mugging backed by ideological rationalizations. To be able to invade the life of another human being at will; to catalog his hopes, dreams and weaknesses; to put yourself in a position to judge him from a discreet distance or undermine his future entirely: This is what surveillance is truly about. Make no mistake, mass surveillance is not about safety; it’s about power. It is a means of enslavement.
For generations the Democratic Party has relied upon unions and their members to dutifully pull the lever for Democratic candidates and to man their call centers and canvass neighborhoods. And yet, an objective look at what are arguably the three biggest issues shows that Democrats are on the wrong side of these issues when compared to the desires and needs of union members.
Subtle collusion appears to be alive and well again in Duluth with gas prices now ranging from $3.84 to $3.89 per gallon while Hibbing is $3.66 all over town, Scanlon is $3.69 and Cloquet ranges from $3.69 to $3.79.
Former New York lieutenant governor Betsy McCaughey bets “you can’t find five members of Congress who have read” the Senate “Gang of Eight” immigration bill.
The former Democrat is experienced at reading large bills the Congress seems inclined to pass without reading, such as Obamacare. She tabs them, underlines them and tries to see the big picture of what will happen if the provisions of the bill are implemented.
Detroit, Chicago and other cash-strapped cities are turning into domestic tribal war zones akin to the middle east, with cops outnumbered 500-to-1. Now, with the revelation that they have no money left, people who believed in the benevolence of government and depended on them to pay for their retirements are going to be left high and dry.
A group of university professors and liberal political organizers came together in Madison for a conference on the working class in which many of the participants were extremely critical of capitalism.
An IRS supervisor who oversaw over 200 agents in the Cincinnati office admitted that she personally reviewed applications from conservative and Tea Party groups for tax-exempt status. Her statements contradict assertions by other IRS officials that "rogue" agents were solely responsible for the targeting.
Perhaps the Mayor can do the same for Duluth Beach goers.
And does anyone wonder what the heck Barack Obama did to improve Chicago as State Senator? Just a thought: If you sucked at your former job, you shouldn't be promoted.
Since when has "immigrant" meant coming from Mexico illegally, being mostly illiterate even in Spanish, and possibly carrying Tuberculosis? Immigration IS a good idea, IF we take from the world's brightest, regardless of country of origin, not simply so they can come here to collect benefits and make babies.
The DFLX received a new production from an email tipster. Apparently DFL Duluth's 'Clean and Safe' crew do not go behind the Historic Norshor. OccuFAIL Duluth has been known to loiter in the neighborhood at the crumbling but Historic Kozy Bar property.
There was a gun found and three juveniles, two males and one female, were taken into custody on outstanding warrants.
But chill out! There's no crime problem in DFL Duluth, it is a figment of your imagination. Let the DFL create some more jobs by building some more Section 8 low-income housing and expanding the DFL Duluth Socialist Industrial Complex with more social services and non-profits.
Chicago officials are probably already scouring the country for a City that will take this wonderful woman abused by a racist system. Get on the phone, Mr Mayor! She can live in the soon to be renovated Kozy.
It is no wonder why DFL Duluth is so screwed up when you have ASSCLOWNS like this in or seeking office and organizing government union workers.
The DNT article states; “Jim Gaylord, who had been endorsed by the DFL, pulled out in May, saying he could not devote adequate time to a campaign due to a commitment in Oklahoma, where he is assisting the Red Cross with tornado relief efforts.” ***What's that smell?***
Don't hold your breath for the DFL subservient media to report on this one as they chose to report on the unendorsed candidate only. The DFLX could see through the tornado stench excuse and the election is 6 months from the bogus pull out.
Two officers responded to the area of the 300 block of East Locust Street where the vehicle’s registered owner lives. There, approximately 30 minutes after the crash, one officer encountered the 26-year-old man armed with a handgun. The officer radioed for assistance and shouted commands at the man. The second officer in the area arrived to help, and both officers repeated loud verbal commands to attempt to get the man to comply. The encounter lasted for more than three minutes. When the officers attempted to take the man into custody he reached for the area where the gun was located. Both officers fired weapons, hitting the man who was pronounced dead at the scene.
The American Civil Liberties Union and the New York Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the Obama administration, challenging the constitutionality of the phone surveillance program revealed by The Guardian.
The suit alleges that the program violates the First and Fourth amendments.
“The agent began his investigation and had determined that the ambassador routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children,” says the memo.
Saying it's "for the victims of gun violence", you never hear about those who have used guns to protect themselves and their families. Why not protest Duluth for inviting gun-toting criminals? Because these people are the ones inviting them.
Man arrested for throwing Molotov cocktails (firebombs) from the roof of a DFL Duluth liquor store. Proof positive that banning guns won't work, because you can't reasonably ban knives, baseball bats, and certainly not gasoline, bottles, and rags. You need to ban CRIMINALS.
What a bunch of BULLSHIT by The King of Double Talk No Jobs Nolan who is looking for sympathy with his spin insinuation of threats. The bottom line is this 70's retread radical wants to control what guns you can have and how many rounds a gun will hold. Nolan is as much for the second amendment as his father is the Pope.
$32,272,407 towards streets, $25,409,336 to general city expenses such as employees, $11,200,000 to employee-retiree benefits, thus leaving $11,116,257 plus interest earned as the probable Community Investment Trust Fund balance. HOW MUCH OF THE SO-CALLED STREET MONIES HAVE GONE TO GOVERNMENT UNION WAGES AND BENEFITS WHICH ARE BETTER THAN MOST OF DULUTH'S CITIZENS?
"The well-known co-owner of popular businesses such as Fitger's Brewhouse and Burrito Union has been at UMD since 1989. However, after months of questions and an investigation - has been let go."
The violations included the following:
• "Violation of the Regent's Policy on Outside Consulting and Other Commitments and the Administrative Policy on Outside Consulting and Other Commitments.""
• "Violations of the Regent's Policy of Nepotism and Personal Relationships and Administrative Policy on Managing Nepotism and Personal relationships."
• "Untruthfulness during and Office of Equal Opportunity investigation."
• "Violation of the Administrative Policy on Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources."
• Inappropriate sexual conduct with a UMD student on University premises, and during work hours."
“The evidence from the investigation clearly indicated that he had been sexually harassing a number of young women”. This is a clear UMD double standard. Where’s the protests, women’s rights activists, or does UMD only stand up for victims of a certain race or sexual preference?
"DFL Duluth’s pension fund is circling the drain because it has only 900 active members supporting more than 1,200 retirees — and those retirees continue to get cost-of-living increases despite the fund’s $120 million shortfall. St. Paul is in better demographic shape, but it is short $600 million. Despite these frankly predictable shortfalls, both funds asked for increases for retirees so that they get the same deal as teachers in the state fund (TRA). Meanwhile, TRA, despite a $6.2 billion deficit, asked for a break for its retirees from cuts made in 2010. This is the kind of thinking that makes taxpayers wonder what planet these folks live on."
In brief, of the 3105 total casualties, only 47, or 1.5% have been of high profile targets. The rest, including some 175 children, is what can be classified as "collateral damage." But who cares: the classic liberal revulsion is never an issue because the only American involvement is that by a 19 year old with a rapid response and a trigger finger. And at the end of the day, who really cares what goes on on the other side...
A record 89,967,000 Americans were not in the labor force in March, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That is an increase of 663,000 from the 89,304,000 Americans who were not in the labor force in February.
The code word "investments" means tax you more. Invest means tax.
The coded language "better quality of life" means to only give only the government union folk a "better quality of life" via much more pay than you get for similar work and letting many them retire in their 50's with fully taxpayer guaranteed funded pensions and health insurance for life.
"The CHUM worker said that Woodruff had texted her with directions to the gazebo and another CHUM worker went there to drop off supplies."
This DFL Duluth poster child been charged with burglary, theft, assault, domestic assault, stalking, violating an order for protection, disorderly conduct, trespass, resisting arrest, terroristic threats, tampering with a motor vehicle, disturbing the neighborhood, escape from custody, providing false information to police, possessing a small amount of marijuana and 18 cases connected to alcohol consumption including drinking in public and public urination.
Yet Sharla Gardner and he Band of Libtards try to tell you DFL Duluth does not have a crime problem and we need more Section 8 Housing.
Yesterday, Rick Nolan was one of ONLY FOUR representatives to vote against the annual appropriations bill that funds the Department of Veterans Affairs. Every other member of the Minnesota delegation, Republican and Democrat, voted for it.
College tuition costs have gone up 945 percent since 1980. Demand for a college education has increased partly because graduating college dramatically increases job prospects and partly because of government subsidies.
"It is to Obama’s benefit to be thought of merely as a “liberal,” even though the more popular term these days is “progressive.” But it is not “liberalism” that we are seeing out of Obama and his White House."
On May 7, 2012, in the St. Louis County District Court of Minnesota, James Michael Hill, former Treasurer of Graphic Communications Conference of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (GCC-IBT) Local 76-C (located in Duluth, Minn.), pled guilty to one count of felony theft by swindle of over $5,000. The plea follows an investigation by the OLMS Minneapolis Resident Investigator Office.
