Hillary’s Challenger

By The Troll On July 15th, 2014 at 11:33 pm

sittinbullAs it becomes more and more obvious to the Democrats that the Hildabeast may not be able to win in 2016, not to mention that many Democrats and a lot of the Press just don’t like her. She’s NOT Bill.  There has been a push to get a person they view as the PERFECT candidate to run.

May I introduce Democrat Dream Candidate Elizabeth Warren,  Sweet Lizzy.  Ms. Warren has been doing an “impromptu” tour of Democrat Money Spots.  Many of you don’t know her but she has two true claims to fame.  The best known one is the line that President Obama stole from her “You didn’t build that”, her second is her false claim that she is Native American.  I present the following info for your viewing and reading pleasure as a highlight of the High Quality of our Democrat Leaders running for President.

CAPPING SUCCESS?

By David Vance On July 15th, 2014 at 12:03 pm

Unknown

I will be on the BBC Nolan Show tomorrow morning discussing this topic. Should we allow Government to impose a CAP on the salaries of senior executives? 

 

The High Pay Centre’s report says that, without further action, trust in business will be damaged by the perception that an executive “elite” is reaping all the rewards from economic growth.

“The government’s tinkering won’t bring about a proper change in the UK’s pay culture,” High Pay Centre director Deborah Hargreaves said. “A maximum pay ratio would recognise the important principle that all workers should share in a company’s success and that gaps between those at the top and low and middle earners cannot just get wider and wider.”

OK, let’s put this in a little context, shall we?

The “High Pay Centre” is a LEFT LEANING organisation. Deborah Hargreaves is a former GUARDIAN journalist. Amongst those offering advice to Deborah is Francis O’Grady –  General Secretary of the British Trades Union Congress. I hope that sheds a little light into the balance of this “report’.

Now, back on topic.

In the first place shareholders in public limited companies already have a clear and legal say on Executive pay, as we saw with Burberry. I fully approve of engaged shareholder engagement and in this case they (narrowly) rejected the pay demands for Christopher Bailey, the CEO.  Now that’s their call, Bailey has done wonders for their profits,  BUT if they think he is not worth it he can either stay or go! The risk is they cut off his nose to spoil their face but hey that’s how the free market works. I fully support this.

I do agree that some greedy Chief Execs and the boards that surround them are weak in terms of good governance and shareholders should indeed rise up and express their views but the mechanism is there, the power is there, it’s that simple! If it is not used, who is to blame?

The High Pay Centre seems most upset that many hareholders seem reasonably content to support considerable financial rewards for CEO’s who deliver VALUE to them and make those companies prosper.

There is however one area where the High Pay Centre could have a point however but oddly enough it fails to make it. Mmmmm, I wonder why?  In the PUBLIC sector, we see nurses earning around £20k whilst the heads of the Health Trust’s rake in close to £200,000k. We see the Director General of the BBC raking in 450,000 a year whilst many of those behind the scenes earn less than 30k. We even see the rank hypocrisy of trade union barons raking in 130k whilst some of their members are on minimum wage – where is the  fairness there? Where is the mechanism to justify value for those who pay for these public sector bosses? How can WE have a say to cap them? Silence.

At the end of the day, the anti-business Secretary Vince Cable wants to find ways for central Government to CONTROL the practices of private business. The High Pay Centre want to put in place control bizarre pay ratios in true communist fashion. It’s the politics of jealousy and should of course be treated with contempt.

The Consummate Professional Eric Holder

Group At Center Of IRS Scandal Has Never Been Interviewed By FBI Investigators

HolderNo one from True The Vote, the highest profile organization targeted by the IRS in the scandal involving improper scrutiny of conservative-leaning non-profits, has been interviewed by the FBI or investigators from the Department of Justice, according to the group’s President, Catherine Engelbrecht.

This stunning revelation comes just days after Attorney General Eric Holder rebuffed the suggestion that an independent investigation is needed into the growing scandal. Holder told ABC News this weekend that a special investigation was unnecessary because “career people” and FBI agents were “doing a good, professional job” investigating the matter.

When I raised Holder’s assertion to Engelbrecht Monday morning during an interview on WMAL radio in Washington, DC, I asked her what her involvement and experience has been with the FBI and the DOJ, considering Holder’s claim that they were doing a “good and professional job” investigating the IRS scandal.

More Destruction of Evidence

By The Troll On July 14th, 2014 at 9:59 pm

The continuing saga of the most criminal administration in American History.

Would you believe, another crashed hard drive?

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Monday made yet another request to the federal government for details about a crashed hard drive that may have contained information allowing criminal charges to be brought against a federal official.

Issa’s newest letter concerns the hard drive of April Sands, a former employee at the Federal Election Commission who resigned in the spring after admitting to violations of the Hatch Act. That law puts restrictions on the ability of government officials to conduct political activities while on the job, or from government offices.

Issa noted that while Sands admitted to violating the law, the FEC just recently told Congress that it could not recover her hard drive, which made it impossible to seek criminal charges against her.

“Recent information obtained by the committee suggests that the FEC OIG could not pursue criminal prosecution for the misconduct because the attorney’s hard drive had been recycled by the FEC,” Issa’s letter said.

As a result, Issa asked the FEC to provide information to his committee by July 28. That includes all documents related to the hard drive loss, and documents detailing the FEC’s practices for retaining information on computers.

The FEC is an independent agency, but Sands’ emails clearly indicated she favored Obama’s re-election in 2012. Before the election, she tweeted things like:

“Our #POTUS’s birthday is August 4. He’ll be 51. I’m donating at least $51 to give him the best birthday present ever: a second term.” In another tweet, she said anyone supporting Republicans is her “enemy.”

“The bias exhibited in these messages is striking, especially for an attorney charged with the responsibility to enforce federal election laws fairly and dispassionately,” Issa wrote.

The problem at the FEC is the third high-profile technical glitch that House Republicans have probed in the last few weeks. In late June, Issa’s committee was told by EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy that some emails may have been lost related to a decision blocking a proposed mining operation in Alaska.

And of course, the IRS told Congress it lost more than two years of emails from Lois Lerner, the former IRS official in charge of tax exempt organizations.

Update:  Same Topic different obstruction of Justice.

White House asks Darrell Issa to drop subpoena

The White House is asking Rep. Darrell Issa to withdraw a subpoena of a senior adviser to President Barack Obama and is offering instead to hold a private briefing on activities in the administration’s political affairs office.“While I am hopeful that we can work together constructively to address your stated interests, your subpoena is not helpful to these efforts. As you know, it has been the view of administrations from both political parties that summoning the President’s most senior advisors to provide public testimony raises significant separation of power concerns,” Eggleston wrote.

But Issa’s office said there is little chance that the subpoena will be withdrawn.

A rocket fired from Gaza hit electricity infrastructure in Israel that supplied power to Gaza, cutting power to about 70,000 people in Gaza.

Media then blames Israel for plunging Gaza into darkness…

I’m touched by Adams support for Hamas but am wondering if he will be travelling to Gaza to campaign for gay rights and gay marriage in particular as part of the Equality agenda that drives Sinn Fein? Also, isn’t it a TAD ironic Adams being spotted anywhere near a “war crimes” poster.

 

WHEN JOHNNY COMES MARCHING HOME…

By David Vance On July 14th, 2014 at 10:20 am

Meet Johnny Callie.

180573

Johnny is an American. But he is over here. And he will be staying here. Why? Well, you see 64 year old Johnny is a convicted drug dealer…

His gang flooded Ipswich, in Suffolk, with crack cocaine and heroin, raking in £3,000 a day. He was jailed for seven years in 2007 for his role in supplying heroin and crack cocaine. Part of a gang of 10, he was snared in 2005 following a two-year operation by police.

Home Secretary Theresa May ordered his deportation in 2011 after his release. But Johnny is a diabetic who also has high blood pressure, and he  said that he  and his depressed girlfriend could not afford US care. So, he CANNOT be deported and we must accept that he remains amongst us. The European Court of Human Rights has determined in his favour and we have to accept this as being right. Once again the ECHR is the friend and companion of every criminal and terrorist and idler going…

DEAL REMEMBERED…

The brave heroes of the IRA and the things they did.

 Thousands of people have attended a concert to mark 25 years since an IRA bomb killed 11 Royal Marine bandsmen in Deal, Kent. A massive blast at the Royal Marine School of Music in 1989 killed 10 bandsmen and injured 22, one of whom died a month later.

The anniversary is on 22 September, but when the Marines left the town in 1996, they promised to return each summer. They pay their respects and play on the memorial bandstand every year. The bomb flattened a three-storey accommodation block and caused widespread damage to nearby homes. Most of the victims of the Deal Barracks bombing were teenagers. No-one has ever been convicted over the deaths.

Get that? No one ever convicted of this grotesque mass murder. Yet the IRA godfathers that presided over this are now feted by the British establishment and preen as statesmen. The remains of their victims lie long since put to rest and evil has been allowed to prevail. In this world, you all have a choice. You can look the other way and whistle as you walk on by OR you can stand with those who confront EVIL and the murderous scum who carry it out.
