The Tennessean Editorial: Mayor Megan Barry Must Resign for Nashville’s Sake (VIDEO)

WHEN YOU HAVE LOST THE LIBERAL TENNESSEAN, ITS TIME TO RESIGN …

The Tennessean, the liberal newspaper of record of Nashville, TN who endorsed the mayor, is now asking her to resign. Mayor Megan Barry’s extramarital affair has not only been an embarrassment to Nashville and herself, has caused another marriage to go to divorce, but also most likely broke laws and her own ethics standards. There are four current investigations into the actions of Mayor Barry, one of which is looking into there was misappropriation of funds where her boy toy, now retired Metro Nashville Police Department Sgt. Rob Forrest, was paid tax payer dollars and claimed to have been working when having their affair.

A leader must put the interests and the needs of the people she serves above her own.

We thought Nashville Mayor Megan Barry was doing just that.

However, it has become abundantly clear in recent weeks that this is not the case after the revelation of her affair with her subordinate and former head of security, retired Metro Nashville Police Department Sgt. Rob Forrest.

This is a confounding and disappointing situation:

How he could rack up more than $170,000 in overtime pay over three years, which included extended domestic and overseas trips with her alone and overtime charges in Nashville for hours after the mayor’s calendar showed official events of the day had ended.

How her Chief Operating Officer Rich Riebeling let the Mayor’s Office approve and pay for security detail travel requests – and how those trips grew from one with just Barry and Forrest alone to nine more after Chief of Staff Debby Dale Mason started supervising those requests.

How despite promises of cooperation with authorities and transparency with the public, Barry and her administrative team have only done so when forced to. Several public records requests are still unfulfilled with the mayor’s office citing a “deliberative process” exemption.

On Feb. 4, the Sunday after Barry confessed to her affair publicly, the Tennessean Editorial Board chose to rebuke her in an editorial entitled “Megan Barry betrayed Nashville.”

The truth of the matter is, Tennessee may be a red state, but Nashville is as liberal as it gets. Mayor Megan Barry thinks she is just going to go on business as usual. However, that is far from the case. What Mayor Barry has not figured out because she is surrounded by “yes” individuals is that it is the LEFT that is now against her and her political career is over. I personally know people who actually voted and campaigned for Mayor Barry and they want her gone. Even women on the LEFT think she is an embarrassment. We have not even got to the possible crimes that she has committed where her boy toy security guard was paid a ridiculous amount of overtime while having this affair. Rob Forrest was on something, I don’t believe it was the job. All things considered, when the liberal newspaper of Nashville comes out against the liberal mayor that they endorsed … MEGAN, HAVE SOME DIGNITY WITH WHAT IS LEFT AND RESIGN.

Megan Barry has debased her leadership position, acting selfishly and deceitfully for nearly two years in a secret affair with her head of security.

She shocked and angered the community. She tore apart two families.

This would not be any of our business if she were an ordinary citizen. And, to be clear, the relationship between Barry and former Metro Nashville Police Sgt. Robert Forrest Jr. was consensual. It was not sexual harassment.

The Tennessean endorsed her in 2015. We commended Barry, a Democrat and former corporate ethics and compliance executive, for her empathy, her inclusion and her accessibility.

Poll: 35% of Americans Don’t Know ObamaCare & Affordable Care Act Are the Same Thing

UNINFORMED AMERICA, LET’S HOPE THESE PEOPLE DON’T KNOW HOW TO VOTE EITHER …

As reported at The Hill, 35% of Americans have no clue that Obamacare and the not-so Affordable Care Act are one in the same. How is that possible. The Times article bias tried to portray that people are confused between the two names for the same law, yet some how when we look at the numbers … among Republicans, a higher percentage of 72% said they knew Obamacare and the A.C.A. were the same. The liberal bias Times would have you believe that the high percentage is a reflection of the party’s longstanding hostility to the law. Sorry Times, maybe it’s because they pay attention more and are more informed.

More than one-third of Americans are unaware that ObamaCare and the Affordable Care Act are the same law.

The figure comes from a new poll by Morning Consult that found 35 percent of Americans do not know ObamaCare is another label — made popular by the GOP — used to describe the Affordable Care Act, enacted under former President Barack Obama in 2010.

About 17 percent of Americans polled thought they were two different laws, and 18 percent said the didn’t know whether they were the same policy or two different things.

The New York Times published the results from the survey on Tuesday. Morning Consult conducted the survey in late January with a sample of 1,890 adults.

The bias analysis of the polling data courtesy of the NY Times:

Sorry Libs, it’s not a matter of confusion, this is a matter of a voter electorate being willfully and woefully uninformed. When one side of the political spectrum is so uninformed regarding what was supposed to be Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation, their is a problem and it has nothing to do with confusion. However, ask those same Obamacare-ACA challenged people who the Kardashian’s are and the number skyrockets.

This finding, from a poll by Morning Consult, illustrates the extent of public confusion over a health law that President Trump and Republicans in Congress hope to repeal.

In the survey, 35 percent of respondents said either they thought Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act were different policies (17 percent) or didn’t know if they were the same or different (18 percent). This confusion was more pronounced among people 18 to 29 and those who earn less than $50,000 — two groups that could be significantly affected by repeal.

Among Republicans, a higher percentage (72 percent) said they knew Obamacare and the A.C.A. were the same, which may reflect the party’s longstanding hostility to the law.

This confusion may affect the public debate over health care policy. If many people think repealing Obamacare would not affect the popular provisions of the A.C.A., they might not understand the potential consequences of the proposals being considered in Washington.

National Enquirer Reports Hillary Clinton Fixer Says I Arranged Sex Trysts For Her with Men & Women

WHATS GOOD FOR THE GOOSE IS GOOD FOR THE GANDER …. I HAVE HEARD RUMORS AND NOT SO RUMORS OF THIS FOR YEARS.

From the National Enquirer comes the following story that a former Clinton family operative admits to arranging sex trysts for Hillary Clinton with both men and women. Hmm, and we thought that it was just Bill Clinton who had a pension for the women. But what;s another sex scandal, it is just the Clinton’s being Clinton’s.  As Powerline opines, “live by the smear, die by the smear, perhaps”. But before you dismiss the story because of the source, let me kind remind folks that when it comes to stories like this, the National enquirer has nailed many of them like the John Edwards-Rielle Hunter love child affair, the Gary Hart affairs, Bill Cosby, Tiger Woods and many more. So we shall see, but do inquiring voters want to know is the question?

One thing is for certain, this election process has been shameful and a pox on everyone’s house. The United States faces so many important and crucial issues like terrorism, the economy, the national debt, illegal immigration, energy, healthcare, Supreme Court in the balance and a Middle East that is a tinder box and the media is sadly more concerned over what people said on tapes 20 years ago.

hillary-clinton-FIXER

Hillary Clinton is a secret sex freak who paid fixers to set up illicit romps with both men AND women!

That’s the blockbuster revelation from a former Clinton family operative who is sensationally breaking ranks with his one-time bosses to speak to The National ENQUIRER in a bombshell 9-page cover story — on newsstands Wednesday.

“I arranged a meeting for Hillary and a woman in an exclusive Beverly Hills hotel,” the man, who was hired by the Clintons, via a Hollywood executive, to cover up their scandals, told The ENQUIRER.

“She had come to the studio to see the filming of a movie in 1994.”

“While I was there, I helped her slip out of a back exit for a one-on-one session with the other woman. It was made to look casual, leaving quietly [rather] that being caught up in the melee … but really it was for something presumably more sordid.”

What’s more, it wasn’t just Hillary’s flings with women that the shadowy Mr. Fix It helped to orchestrate!

I have to kinda agree with the Right Wing News, this report will probably make no difference for the election. Those who are voting for Hillary know she is a liar and a generally sleazy individual. They just don’t care. Although I must admit, I was wondering if anyone was going to release a piece on Hillary’s trysts. The only video that could possibly harm Hillary Clinton is if there is any of her harming puppies.

New York Daily News Nothing But an Editorial Rag, Not News … Columnist Linda Stasi Writes that Rightwing Christian who was Murdered by the Islamic Terrorists in San Bernardino was as evil as Terrorists

IDIOT OF THE WEEK … SO NOW THE LEFT-WING LUNATIC MSM IS BLAMING VICTIMS OF TERRORISM AND CLAIMING THEY ARE AS BAD AS THE TERRORISTS?

It is no wonder that the New York Daily News is having circulation issues and now they are just into link-baiting editorials so that individuals read and comment on the hideous and misguided articles. All last week the NYDN ran editorial covers on their front page following the San Bernardino radical-Islamist terrorist slaughter that saw 14 innocent lives lost, first they did the prayer shaming cover, then the one calling the NRA chief a “terrorist” who is just as bad as mass killer and now they have outdone themselves. Linda Stasi, a Daily News columnist, has penned a piece stating that a right-wing Christian who was murdered and one of the 14 innocent people killed by Islamic terrorists, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik,  in San Bernardino was just as evil as they were.

Linda Stasi

Check out what a Liberal, hate-filled moron looks like who would dare compare a terrorist victim to a terrorism

They were two hate-filled, bigoted municipal employees interacting in one department. Now 13 innocent people are dead in unspeakable carnage.

One man spent his free time writing frightening, NRA-loving, hate-filled screeds on Facebook about the other’s religion.

The other man quietly stewed and brewed his bigotry, collecting the kind of arsenal that the Facebook poster would have envied.

What they didn’t realize is that except for their different religions they were in many ways similar men who even had the same job.

Are you kidding me? I am in agreement with the American Conservative 100% … “What kind of person writes this? What kind of newspaper publishes it?” How in the hell does one equate an individual who was savagely murdered at the hands of a terrorist to an innocent victim who was just expressing their God given First Amendment rights of free speech? Nicholas Thalasinos, a victim of terrorism, never once killed another person because of his views or opinions. However, this is the derangement of the LEFT today and the MSM where they have such hate for anyone who is Conservative or has a differing point of view from them, that they would make the comparison. UNREAL. What kind of a bottom-feeder must you truly be to defame a deceased person who died at the hands of a terrorist.

It is vile, utterly vile, that Linda Stasi and the Daily News would speak of a murdered man that way. So, what, does the Daily News now reserve the right to look into the opinions of all murder victims, and if they don’t like what they see, publish columns saying that they are no better than the man who slaughtered them?

Stasi here reminds me of the old black-humor joke: “Sure, Hitler hated the Jews. But to be fair, the Jews also hated Hitler.”

I am not a sue happy individual, but if i were the family of Nicholas Thalasinos, I think i would be bringing a defamation and libel suit against the New York Daily News.
