WHOM DO WE THANK???----by Larry Fillmore


At the last Special Town Council meeting, five of the six Councilors present voted to approve the Municipal budget for 2014-2015. Councilor Pesce was the ONLY councilor to vote NO.

In August/September, when the taxpayers of Lisbon receive their tax bills; who is to blame for the estimated 5% - 7% tax increase? It would be unfair to place the entire blame on the Councilors. Several of the Councilors asked for cuts to the approved budget but Chairwoman Ward would not bring the issue before the council. Part of the problem is that the Councilors do not make the suggestions as motion to be put before the entire council. Instead Chairwoman Ward asked for suggestions, instead of motions, and then totally ignored them because it was not presented as a motion.

Second, when the people made suggestions to the council no council member took it and put it in the form of a motion. Because it was NOT made as a motion, there was no action taken on any suggestions by the people. Remember, the people can only make suggestions and cannot make a motion. Chairwoman Ward also ignored the suggestions by the people to reduce the Municipal budget.

Third, Chief Brooks made absolutely no attempt to keep his budget the same as last year. In fact, Chief Brooks increased his budget by $78,268.00 which puts the Police Department’s budget at $1,376,120.00 this year. That’s right the Police Department’s budget is over a MILLION tax dollars. On top of that, Chief Brooks has included in his budget the replacement of three (3) vehicles; one which had a new engine installed last year. Chief Brook’s budget includes two (2) Detectives; two (2) part-time secretaries and a full time Administrative Assistant. The Police Department has two (2) vehicles that sit at the schools all day long. The vehicle count right now is nine (9) and we only have a maximum of two (2) patrols at one time. Chief Brooks stated that the small community of Lisbon normally uses one patrol; so why do we need all the vehicles. A side note, Chief Brooks does not have a “life cycle management” program to replace fewer vehicles each year. Last year we replaced two vehicles and this year we are replacing three vehicles.

As you can see, Chief Brooks made no attempt to help the taxpayers out this year. Instead, he teamed up with Chairwoman Ward (who does not pay Real Estate taxes in Lisbon) to stick it to the people. Chairwoman Ward even went so far as to not allow the people to speak prior to the vote on the Municipal budget at the Special Town Council meeting. This is a gross abuse of her position. How are the Councilors going to know how the people feel if the people are not allowed to voice their concerns?

Every time you see Chief Brooks and Chairwoman Lisa Ward thank them for your increase in your taxes.

OVER A THIRD OF AMERICANS WANT OBAMA IMPEACHED

Even one in five Democrats favors impeaching President

Over A Third Of Americans Want Obama Impeached
by STEVE WATSON | INFOWARS.COM JULY 25, 2014

A new CNN/ORC International poll released Friday indicates that over a third of Americans wish to see President Obama impeached and thrown out of office for consistently acting beyond his authority.
Overall, 33 percent say they want Obama impeached, with 57 percent of Republicans backing the move. Over a third of Independents also said they supported impeachment, with 13 percent of Democrats, more than one in ten, backing a move to impeach Obama.
Forty-five percent, a plurality, also said that Obama has sought to expand the power of the presidency too far. Only three in 10 said that the President’s actions have been about right, with 22 percent somehow believing he hasn’t gone far enough.
In addition to the impeachment view, 41 percent of Americans said they believed House Republicans should go ahead with a planned lawsuit against Obamacare.
On Thursday this week, the House Rules Committee approved a resolution authorizing the suit, led by Speaker John Boehner. The suit claims that Obama violated the Constitution by circumventing Congress and changing the new healthcare law’s employer mandate by executive order.
In a similar poll, conducted by Fox News, a 58-37 percent majority said they think Obama exceeded his authority regarding the health care law change. The poll found that 36 percent favor impeachment.
Most interestingly, almost four in 10 Democrats think Obama is guilty of executive overreach on changing the Obamacare law, while one in five Democrats favors impeaching their own party leader. The highest figures in favor of impeachment, 68 percent, were those who identified themselves as part of the Tea Party movement.
The President has regularly circumvented Congress and acted via executive order during his two terms in office, despite pledging not to do so, and criticising the practice during his election

Monsanto Ordered to Pay $93 Million to Small Town for Poisoning Citizens

gmo monsanto crop money 263x164 Monsanto Ordered to Pay $93 Million to Small Town for Poisoning CitizensBig wins can happen in small places. The West Virginia State Supreme Court finalized a big blow to the biotech giant Monsanto this month, finishing a settlement causing Monsanto to pay $93 million to the tiny town of Nitro, West Virginia for poisoning citizens with Agent Orange chemicals.
The settlement was approved last year, but details were worked out only weeks ago as to how the funds were to be spent. The settlement will require Monsanto to do the following:
  • $9 million will be spent to clean dioxin contaminated dust from 4500 homes.
  • $21 million will be spent to test to see if people have been poisoned with dioxin.
  • Citizens will be monitored for such poisoning for 30 years, not just a few months.
  • An additional $63 million is to be allotted if additional tests for dioxin contamination testing is necessary.
  • Anyone who lived in the Nitro area between Jan. 1, 1948, and Sept. 3, 2010 will be tested for dioxin. Although they must show proof they lived in the area, they will be eligible for testing even if they no longer live in Nitro.
  • Former or present employees of Monsanto are not eligible for any of these benefits.
  • An office will be set up to organize testing for Nitro citizens. The registration of participants is to be overlooked by Charleston attorney Thomas Flaherty, who was appointed by the court.
  • Residents have a right to file individual suits against Monsanto if medical tests show they suffered physical harm due to dioxin exposure.

Hospital Shooting Stopped By Armed Doctor: He Saved Lives, “Without a Doubt”

The Daily Sheeple

A psychiatrist is being hailed as a hero after he stopped what could have been a mass shooting at a Pennsylvania hospital earlier this week.
49-year-old patient Richard Plotts and his caseworker, 53-year-old Theresa Hunt, went into the office of psychiatrist, Dr. Lee Silverman for an appointment. Shortly after arriving a heated argument broke out, and a staffer peaked through the door to see the patient, Plotts, pointing a handgun at Silverman. The staffer then quietly shut the door and dialed 911 to alert police.
Plotts opened fire and shot Hunt in the face. She died at the scene.
That’s when Silverman crouched behind his desk and retrieved his firearm. He was able to fire several shots at Plotts, striking him twice in the torso and once in the arm.
Plotts fired several shots at Silverman, hitting his thumb and grazing his temple.
Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan said it was clear that the doctor acted in self-defense:
“When the caseworker was shot, (Silverman) crouched down behind the desk to avoid him being shot.
He was able to reach for his weapon, and realizing it was a life or death situation, was able to engage the defendant in the exchange of gunfire.”
After doctor and patient exchanged gunfire, the suspect fled to a hallway. There, hospital employees wrestled him to the ground and took his weapon, Whelan said.
Plotts had 39 bullets left on him when he was apprehended – bullets police believe he intended to use.
“I believe that if the doctor did not have a firearm, (and) the doctor did not utilize the firearm, he’d be dead today, and I believe that other people in that facility would also be dead,” Whelan said.
Yeadon Police Chief Donald Molineux said that “without a doubt, I believe the doctor saved lives.”

Obama Using Biological Warfare Against U.S. Citizens

• Illegal alien diseases are a ticking time bomb.
By Ronald L. Ray —
All job growth in the United States since 2000 has gone to immigrants, says a new study, while three-quarters of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, and more than half earn less than $30,000 per year.
But now, a deadly threat has been heaped onto those injuries. Although legal immigrants to this country receive a thorough health screening, and are refused entry if they have communicable diseases, that is not true with regard to the hordes of illegal aliens crossing the U.S. borders at a rate of thousands each day. And these invaders bring with them a host of horrific illnesses and parasites, which threaten the health and lives of American citizens, as well as U.S. national security.
The public health menace posed by foreigners storming across U.S. borders has been growing for several years, studiously ignored by the federal government. Thanks, however, to the nation-destroying policies of the Obama administration, the invasion of illegals—fomented by every U.S. president after John Kennedy—and the number of disease-bearing individuals—have multiplied like bacteria in a Petrie dish.
While the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) disingenuously claims that it “has public health controls in place,” the reality is that the Border Patrol, even with assistance from the U.S. Coast Guard, is overwhelmed completely. Its officers are themselves being infected. Quarantines consist of a mere line of yellow “caution” tape, while screening and detention occur only if active symptoms are observed.
Most of the people caught entering the country illegally are released into the general population after 72 hours, with only the merest hope that they will appear for their deportation hearing. Meanwhile, three-quarters of the invaders are never caught, leaving them free to infect Americans.
Nor are all from Mexico and Central America. Many illness-bearing illegals are black Africans, Chinese and Filipinos, some of whom also enter the U.S. from the south.
Mexico formerly prevented foreign nationals from passing through its territory on the way to America. Today, the latter receive Mexican assistance and arrive in busloads at our border.

Glyphosate Detected in Deformed Piglets

Heather Callaghan
Activist Post

In April, a Danish farmer called for a ban on glyphosate. For three years he had used non-GMO soy feed for his pig herds, but when he ran out, he ordered two tons of GM soy feed. His herdsman immediately told the farmer of diarrhea in the piglets and lack of appetite in the sows. He had not told the herdsman of the feed switch.

Worse, he began noticing an absurd amount of deformed piglets and reproductive problems in the sows.  Roundup is used on GMO soy shortly before it is used as pig feed.

But that's not all - he brought 38 malformed piglets to a laboratory. In a research project by German and Egypt Veterinarian doctors using ELISA testing, differing levels of glyphosate (aka Roundup herbicide, by Monsanto) concentrations were discovered in piglets born from sows eating genetically modified soy feed.

That research became "Detection of Glyphosate in Malformed Piglets," published in April, by open access journal Environmental & Analytical Toxicology.

All organs and tissues of the euthanized one-day old piglets contained glyphosate. Highest concentrations of glyphosate were found in the lungs, followed by the hearts. Lowest concentrations were found in muscle tissues. They noticed that the rate of malformations increased to one out of every 260 piglets born of sow when feeds contained 0.87-1.13 ppm glyphosate during the first 40 days of pregnancy. If feed soy contained 0.25 ppm glyphosate, then one of 1,432 piglets was

Wikipedia temporarily bans Congress IPs over ‘persistent’ editing

 5 hours ago 0 328 ViewsCapitol computers have been barred from modifying Wikipedia for 10 days, due to “persistent disruptive editing.” The legislative body was told by Wikipedia administrators that it is welcome to make “useful contributions” once the ban expires.


“You have been blocked from editing for a period of 10 days for persistent disruptive editing, as you did at Mediaite. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions,” a Wikipedia message said. 
“If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block,”administrator Tom Morris told Congress on Thursday.
The ban follows an existing one-day ban that was imposed earlier this month in reactoin to the Mediaite incident referenced by Morris. IPs originating from Congress computers were found to have edited Mediaite’s description to a “sexist transphobic news and opinion blog” that “automatically assumes that someone is male without any evidence.”

Stanford biologist warns of early stages of Earth's 6th mass extinction event

The planet's current biodiversity, the product of 3.5 billion years of evolutionary trial and error, is the highest in the history of life. But it may be reaching a tipping point.

In a new review of scientific literature and analysis of data published in Science, an international team of scientists cautions that the loss and decline of animals is contributing to what appears to be the early days of the planet's sixth mass biological extinction event.

Two NH cops fired for excessive force against prisoner

published by Tom Sullivan on Thu, 2014-07-24 21:14

Two police officers who used excessive force against a prisoner in 2009 have been fired. Two others have been punished as well. The Seabrook, NH incident was caught on camera and the video was released by the victim in January 2014.

Michael Bergeron posted the video to YouTube, which depicts cops from the small New England town slamming a local man face-first into a cinder block wall as they attempt to move him down the corridor of a jail facility. A surveillance camera near the scene of the incident also caught one officer discharging his pepper-spray at the man while he is on the ground and just barely out of sight. Bergeron, who was 19 at the time of the incident, wrote in the video description that he was the prisoner who was attacked.


According to the New Hampshire man, the footage of November 2009 incident was uncovered by attorney he hired two years ago after the altercation but ultimately “disappeared” until just before he posted it. Bergeron said he was in police custody at the time of the incident after being arrested for driving while intoxicated.

According to the United Nations the Islamic State, formerly ISIS, has ordered all women between the ages of 11 and 46 to undergo female genital mutilation.
It is estimated more than 4 million women would be affected.
"This is something very new for Iraq, particularly in this area, and is of grave concern and does need to be addressed," said Jacqueline Badcock, the UN humanitarian coordinator in Iraq.
"This is not the will of Iraqi people, or the women of Iraq in these vulnerable areas covered by the terrorists," she added.
According to blogger Fadi Al-Qadi the order is dated July 11. He posted the following fatwa containing the IS logo:

LISBON TAXPAYERS LOSE AGAIN!!!! ------- by Larry Fillmore


At last night’s Town Council Workshop and Special Town Council meeting, the taxpayers lost again. The Town Council minus Councilor Dillon Pesce passed another budget that will raise our taxes for the fourth year in a row.

I want to commend Councilor Pesce for sticking to his beliefs and putting the taxpayers first. The Municipal Budget was penny for penny the same with the exception of the Town Manager cutting $6,035.00 out of General Government. Two Councilors who voted NO turned around and approved the budget last night. So what changed?????????? Whatever took place behind the scenes worked.

Chairwoman Ward continued her pressure on Councilors and denied the people the opportunity to speak during the Workshop and the meeting prior to the vote. This maneuver is typical when you are desperate to protect your mentor’s budget. Council Lunt suggested not replacing any Police vehicles this year at a previous meeting and was totally ignored by Chairwoman Ward. Other suggestions for making cuts in the budget were also ignored by Chairwoman Ward. This action by Chairwoman Ward shows how far she would go to protect the Municipal Budget.

Chairwoman Ward ordered that the Audience Participation portion of the meeting come after the vote on the budget. Normally, Audience Participation comes prior to the voting portion of the meeting. According to the Council Working Rules, the people have a right to speak on agenda item before the agenda item comes before the council for action. Now it does say that the order of the agenda maybe changed by the Chair. But denying the people the right to express their feeling to the council is wrong on so many levels. The fact she refused to allow the people to speak prior to the vote on the budget is a violation of the town’s mission statement and is an injustice to the people who elected her. The people have a right to participate in local government and to let their elected official know how they feel on issues before the council votes on them.

This is an abuse of position and Chairwoman Ward should be immediately removed as Chairwoman of this council.

Larry Fillmore


P.S. I personally believe, after listening to the people, that the approved Municipal budget has approximately $465,000.00 of excessive spending in it. This is an entire .mil rate. Thank you Chief Brooks!

Lisbon Property Taxes Are Going UP

At last nights Town Council Meeting Lisbon Councilors hung their heads and passed the annual budget with a 5-1 vote. Councilor  Pesce was the only one that held his ground and voted against this bloated budget.

This new increase in taxes will probably elevate Lisbon to the second highest taxed Town in Androscoggin County, above Durham and Auburn.  Our taxes will increase somewhere between 5% and 7% percent, If we are lucky.

Why didn't Lisbon Councilors make meaningful reductions in the high Police budget? What are they afraid of?   Everyone in town knows why our taxes are so outrageous.  

This September when we all open our new tax bills we can all thank 5 Councilors for the increase.

Thank You Councilor Pesce for standing up for Lisbon Taxpayers.

Exposed: The REAL Reason MH17 Was Shot Down


Justice Department appears 'knee deep' in IRS targeting scandal

A congressional committee chairman released a report on Tuesday that appears to further question the identity of who triggered the IRS investigation into conservative groups when testimony from the number-two man at the U.S. Justice Department appeared to have contradicted the previously released information by the Internal Revenue Service. Lawmakers now believe the Justice Department is knee deep in the growing scandal.
According to a report from House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and its Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Job Creation, and Regulatory Affairs Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, Deputy Attorney General James Cole testified that a DOJ attorney contacted the IRS, apparently on his own initiative. However, Issa and Jordan contend that an email from that DOJ attorney indicated that someone at the IRS had asked him to look into conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.
Richard C. Pilger, the DOJ's director of the Election Crimes Branch in the Public Integrity Section of Criminal Division, contacted the IRS' former tax-exempt division chief Lois Lerner, the key person in the scandal, who has twice refused to testify before Congress, invoking her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
In his opening statement, Cole testified that a "Public Integrity Section attorney reached out to the IRS for a meeting… for the purpose of understanding what potential criminal violations, related to campaign finance activity, might evolve following the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. FEC.”
Cole also stated that Pilger “reached out” to Lois Lerner, but in Pilger’s email he said, “I have been asked to run something by you.”
"That would beg the question, who is that person who contacted Pilger and triggered the inquiry into tea-party groups? Investigators would be keen to know if that person was a higher-up at the Department of Justice, or perhaps even the White House," noted Issa and Jordan.
Following subcommittee chairman Jim Jordan's relentless questioning Cole finally conceded that the DOJ had reached out to the IRS to inquire about whether conservative groups may have been in violation of their tax-exempt status. Cole also admitted that even after receiving computer disks containing well over one-million-pages including confidential taxpayer information which were kept by the DOJ for four years, his office did nothing.

RECAP TOWN COUNCIL WORKSHOP & SPECIAL TOWN COUNCIL MEETING -- by Larry Fillmore


JULY 22, 2014

At last night’s Town Council Workshop there was little discussion about the budget. There was a lecture by Chairwoman Ward about how much work the Finance Committee and others had put into the proposed budget. The Town Manager cut $6,035.00 out of the Professional Development budget of the General Government. Other than that, the Municipal Budget was penny for penny the same as the previously failed budget.

Councilor Bickford said that he felt it was an injustice to have any bonds on the June ballot and wanted an Ordinance prepared to limit bond issues to the November ballot. The Workshop was adjourned without the people having an opportunity to speak which is normally done at the end of the Workshop.

Next, the Special Town Council meeting began with Council Orders, Resolutions & Ordinances. The Municipal Budget passed by a vote of 5-1 with Councilor Pesce voting NO. The Economic Development Budget passed by a vote of 6-0. The Catering permit for Hi Style Catering was passed by a vote of 6-0. And finally, the Community Planning Agreement for Professional Services was passed by a vote of 6-0.

There was no one to speak during Other Business or Audience Participation & Response.

The meeting was adjourned.

'Tokyo should no longer be inhabited,' Japanese doctor warns residents regarding radiation


Tokyo

(NaturalNews) In an essay addressed to his colleagues, Japanese doctor Shigeru Mita has explained why he recently moved away from Tokyo to restart his practice in western Japan: He believes that Tokyo is no longer safe to inhabit due to radioactive contamination caused by the March 11, 2011, meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The essay, titled "Why did I leave Tokyo?" was published in the newsletter of the Association of Doctors in Kodaira, metropolitan Tokyo.

Soil tests prove contamination

Dr. Mita opens his essay by contextualizing his decision to leave, noting that he had a long history as a doctor in Tokyo.

"I closed the clinic in March 2014, which had served the community of Kodaira for more than 50 years, since my father's generation, and I have started a new Mita clinic in Okayama-city on April 21," he wrote.

Dr. Mita notes that, for the past 10 years, he had been working to persuade the municipal government of Tokyo to stock iodine pills to distribute to the population in the case of a nuclear accident. Dr. Mita's concern had been that an earthquake might trigger a meltdown at the Hamaoka nuclear power plant. All of his requests were rejected, however, under the excuse that there was no reason to expect such an accident.

When the disaster did occur -- albeit at a different plant than Dr. Mita had feared -- Tokyo did not act to protect its population, and still has taken no measures. Yet, based on soil surveys, Dr. Mita noted, "It is clear that Eastern Japan and Metropolitan Tokyo have been contaminated with radiation.

Maine communities could become more dangerous without bear baiting, hounding, trapping

bear_1721930cBlack bears are becoming a national menace as well as a serious threat to public safety and private property, and exacerbating this problem is the Humane Society of the United States and its radical, Pollyanna belief that bears can be managed without the use of hunters.


The D.C.-based Humane Society roams our country using its vast millions looking for opportunities to promote its anti-hunting agenda. Now the group has landed in Maine with the November bear referendum; as a result, Maine could join the growing list of states struggling to prevent bear-human encounters.

According to a recent report in the Wall Street Journal, the American black bear population has continued to thrive in recent years, growing to 850,000. This is an astonishing fact given the populations of the world’s largest predators have declined. For example, the combinedworldwide populations of lions, polar bears, gray wolves and tigers is 224,000.
