    Here’s what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together. It smells like conspiracy and treason. Everyone needs to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important……
    From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
    A Grand Jury had been impaneled. Governments from around the world had donated to
    the “Charity”. Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared. Now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out. Look who took over this investigation in 2005: None other than James Comey; Coincidence? Guess who was transferred into the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS? None other than, Lois “Be on The Lookout” (BOLO) Lerner. Isn’t that interesting? But this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right? Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005? No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein. Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame? Another coincidence (just an anomaly in statistics and chances), but it was Robert Mueller. What do all four casting characters have in common? They all were briefed and/or were front-line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation. Another coincidence, right? Fast forward to 2009…. James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin. Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, official government business, on her own personal email server. The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary. Like all good public servants do, supposedly looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians. Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, America got absolutely nothing out of it. However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one hour speech; then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours. Ok, no big deal right? Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme. Robert Mueller was the FBI Director during this time frame? Yep, He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009. Who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland? None other than, Rod Rosenstein. And what happened to the informant? The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it. How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise? Very soon after; the sale was approved!~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal. Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division? None other than, – Lois Lerner. Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right? Let’s fast forward to 2015. Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law. He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email. Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary. Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013? None other than James Comey; who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer? Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh? Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and he exonerates her. Nope….couldn’t find any crimes there. In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury! Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Comey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 5th of 2016, and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing. Do you see the pattern? It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General,Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues. FISA Abuse, political espionage….. pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others did it: All the same players. All compromised and conflicted. All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves. All connected in one way or another to the Clinton’s.
    They are like battery acid; they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.How many lives have these two destroyed? As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service. Let us not forget that Comey’s brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes. The person that is the common denominator to all the crimes above and still doing her evil escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter US Agencies? Yep, that would be Hillary R. Clinton.Now who is LISA BARSOOMIAN? Let’s learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian background. Lisa H. Barsoomian, an Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protégé of James Comey and Robert Mueller. Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998. Lawrence also represented: Robert Mueller three times; James Comey five times; Barack Obama 45 times; Kathleen Sebelius 56 times; Bill Clinton 40 times; and Hillary Clinton 17 times. Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times. You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the work history of this Barsoomian woman? Apparently, someone does, because someone out there cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets (?). Someone out there cares so much that even the internet has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian. Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative. Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community. Although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is Lisa Barsoomian@NIH.gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes of Health. This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities. It’s a cover, so big deal right? What does one more attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter? It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and subsequent 14 month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana legalization mix …. and last but not least Mueller’s
    never-ending investigation into collusion between the Trump team and the Russians. Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention? BECAUSE….She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein WIFE!

    Revoke Hillary’s Security Clearance!
    “We are beginning to get a sense of the full magnitude of not only Hillary Clinton’s breach of her sworn commitments to safeguard American secrets during her disastrous stint as Secretary of State, but also of her betrayal of her country, as well.
    Hillary’s conscious decision to violate secure communications protocols – enabled by, among others, her Muslim Brotherhood-tied top aide, Huma Abedin – was reportedly and predictably exploited by Communist China, and probably other hostile nations.
    Evidently, every one of her official and personal emails was obtained in real time by a Chinese intelligence front operating out of Northern Virginia. That means that the highly classified information she received and transmitted, as well as other sensitive correspondence was certainly compromised and probably exploited.
    At a minimum, none of those implicated, including Hillary Clinton herself, should ever have access again to state secrets.”

So sick of the “witch hunt” against him. So sick of the FAKE news and double standard when it comes to this President. How soon we forget past Presidents indiscretions…Clinton for just one example and his affairs…he paid off Paula Jones, Jennifer Flowers and so on. Double standard. Speaking of the Clinton’s, why are they not being investigated for all their corruption??? Just wish as a country we can agree to disagree and rally together to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! Stop all the craziness…let the man do his job. Why would a TRUE American want our countries President to fail…he fails America fails! Keep plugging away Mr. President, you are doing a great job!

      If this Mexico-US thing works out, it will be a good thing for this country and a positive for Trump. That is about all I agree with you on because your memory is a bit faulty. Clinton was impeached for lying about oral sex (by the Republican-controlled House but not the Senate) The Clinton Foundation has been investigated numerous times and has been fined for its shady dealings. We will see how the Trump Foundation weasels its way out of its current troubles. Finally, you stated “Why would a TRUE American want our countries President to fail…he fails America fails!” Why was the rallying cry of Republicans during President Obama’s time in office to do everything in their power to 1st, keep him from being re-elected and 2nd, when that failed to thwart him at every turn? Who were the “TRUE Americans” then? So don’t give me the give him a break line when that isn’t the way things work. He needs to earn the respect of all Americans. He refuses to do that.

        Clinton was impeached by the House but not convicted by the Senate (which doesn’t decide impeachment, only conviction). Millions have been spent investigating the Clintons and nothing has been found (7 or 8 investigations of Benghazi alone). President Clinton did not pay off Paula Jones to keep her quiet and commit campaign fraud in hopes of winning an election; he paid to settle a lawsuit that had been filed in open court; no hush money or non-disclosure agreements.

      Some dumbass was standing on the back of a cart, and when the cart turned, he fell off and hit his head. Possibly with the help of a couple bud lights, or not.

    The Globe Gazette is the “Titanic” of local news sources. Going…Going…GONE! Of course, the BIG difference between the Titanic and the Globe is that the operators of the doomed ship TOLD all the passengers that it’s “game over”. There were no crew members bailing water in the futile hope that the ship might be saved. And the Titanic did not hurl passengers overboard to eliminate some weight in the hopes of saving the ship from sinking. But as compartment after compartment became flooded, the ship sank deeper and deeper. Just like the Globe will continue to do. They tossed multiple employees overboard, but to no avail… They no longer even print their papers because they cannot afford to. Given that the Globe is a caricature of its’ former relevance (news-wise), I’m pretty sure that its’ keel will soon be facing skyward. With NO survivors.

      Your insightful commentary can also apply to the good old days of KGLO TV with Bob the Weatherman and Barts Club House. They were comfortable old souls who rode off into the sunset. They were replaced by corporates who knew what was best for us and gave us KIMT. This amateurish endeavor is presently saddling up and leaving Dodge but they have been absent for years already. And alas, our beloved local radio stations are now on preprogrammed, endless sound loops 24/7 interrupted by occasional news bites every few hours. The days of home grown local news, weather and sports are over and gone my friend. Turn out the lights.

    Children raised in fatherless homes, especially black children, are far more likely than children raised in two parent homes to engage in criminal behavior and thus, have contact with police. Ergo when they father a child with a woman to whom they are not married – or at least living with -they are contributing to the problem against which these football players are taking a knee.

    If you look at many of these players’ records on out-of-wedlock children, you find that they are contributing significantly to the problem against which they are protesting.

    For example, Antonio Cromartie has 12 children by 9 different women. Apparently the NFL had to shell out $500,000 before he could even play football for them. Travis Henry has 11 children by 10 women, Willis McGahee has 9 children by 8 women, Derrick Thomas has 7 children by 5 different women, Bennie Blades has 6 children by 6 women, Ray Lewis has 6 children by 4 women and Marshall Faulk has 6 children by 3 women.

    They forgot to include Adrian Peterson. 11 kids from 7 different women?

    Before these guys take a knee they should take a good look in the mirror. It appears that their problem is not the knee.

Then the boy genius shows up finally to finish screwing it up. Their license on fcc.gov says they can’t abandon their city of license which is mason city, which they have, and will do more of on Oct. 1.

    The need to take our city back falls onto the same agenda as take our country back and clean the swamp. Mason City needs the local businesses owners to come forward and truly take control. We see overpaid city positions, understaffed crews and department heads that are plainly impossible to deal with let alone talk with. Many need to be shown the retirement door like street department heads, chamber,park boards and development boards that have simply done nothing. Drive down to the north end and look what businesses are TRYING to do with little MC help. Instead of getting behind their efforts, we tie their hands at every corner. ONLY true established business owners know the facts of attempting business ownership in MC. The city and it people are NOT loyal to you, MC doesn’t support MC. We need an effort from native MC to reclaim this town and stand united, or watch it continue to deteriorate. Thank you Jessica Tierney and hubby for seeing the light and working hard to lease out your owned buildings at a FAIR rate.

    I was wondering why the Globe Gazette didn’t cover the US Marshall’s take down in the Walmart parking lot but then I remembered I don’t subscribe to that junk paper. Anyway a friend said as he sat in his car many law enforcement vehicles some of which were US Marshalls stormed the parking lot and took 6 people out of a car, made them go face down on the pavement at gun point. Turns out one of them was wanted for murder in Chicago. But then aren’t all Chicagoans wanted for murder? Probably though the Globe didn’t want to scare the old folks here which are 90% of the population.

      Not all Chicagoans, or former residents of it’s Suburbs, are wanted for murder. On the contrary, most people who arrive here from the Chicago area, are just as law abiding, just respectful as most residents of Mason City. They pay their taxes, some run businesses, and contribute to our community.

Now they’re panicking, Now not only do they not have their libtard empire but conservatives are taking control of everything. This could turn back the clock on their agenda and they could lose a century of plotting.

    The real definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.
    Here are six Conundrums of Socialism in the United States of America :
    1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized
    2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.
    3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.
    4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer
    5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other Countries only dream about.

    The left screws up several hotbutton issues which only makes their disappointment at the ballot box seem more inevitable. Look, Trump is a crook; there’s no denying this any longer, but he’s skilled at playing the 2 viewpoints against one another to enrich and aggrandize himself. Example: Immigration. The left continues soliciting for sympathy on separated border crossers (which is an effective detterent nobody wants to admit to) and by doing so they make it harder to defeat Trump on the corruption charges he should rightfully be impeached on.

        I agree with you (TortElvis) that the Democrats have placed diversity / inclusion more important than building policies to help multigenerationally born US citizens. It’s a fact that they want America etnically, globally, racially diverse, and think nothing of placing a foreign born Arabic student in line to receive a scholarship over a white US born Iowan. Daddy Trump is a crook though, and they will stop at nothing until he is impeached or indicted. He colluded with Russians and he has to pay the ultimate price for that action.

Let’s see Trump’s tax returns to see how much the Russians gave him in loans, Clinton’s speaking fees are what he was offered (when is free enterprise a crime?) and show some proof that the money that came to the foundation from Russia-affiliated people was dirty money.

    THANK YOU HON GOV JERRY BROWN!
    After the yearly session closed, all the Representatives went home exhausted and the damage was done. So what did they accomplish during this high pressure year in Sacramento? This is an update today on the progressive Democrats’ continued destruction of California. The ones who would not endorse Dianne Feinstein, because she is not sufficiently Socialist extreme.
    By the way, we are already deemed the worst state for businesses. Here are some of the highlights of this session:
    * Passed Cap-n-Trade Tax which will increase gas 0.63 to 0.93 cents a gallon change and the taxes that go with it. So do the math projection….. (0.12 + 0.63 = 075/gallon + current $3.10/gallon = $3.85/gallon)
    * Proposed increase on a new tax every residence will pay for tap water!
    * A $3.46B parks bond to pay for parks in “disadvantaged communities”. The debt service alone will be over $200 million a year. The good news is some money goes to help fix the Salton Sea which should have always been a State responsibility!
    * Law to release any lifer (murder, rape , child molestation, etc.) who is 60 years old and has already spent 25 years in prison! Charles Manson would have qualified if he just waited a few months before dying; and the Melendez brothers that murdered their parents could be released in about 12 years? Victims?… What victims?
    * A new $ 50 charge on all residents living in a mobile home parks to address “living condition enforcement” in those parks? What the hell does that mean? As if having to live in a mobile home park isn’t bad enough? Regressive tax on the poor?
    * We picked an official dinosaur for the State of California. Really???
    * Requires Tesla to either unionize with the United Auto Workers Union, or forfeit State incentives to buy their electric cars! Maybe political blackmail doesn’t count as breaking any law. Unions are loving it. “Watch out solar companies… They may be coming after you next!!!”
    Hang tight Elon!
    * Reduce from a felony to a misdemeanor the purposeful intent to transmit the AIDS virus to a unknowing partner
    * Give preferential treatment to prisoners convicted of serious crimes that are less than 25 years oldbecause their brains are not mature enough to understand right from wrong. Whaaat?
    * A bill to require our true sex be omitted from drivers licenses? Whaaat?
    * Free legal services for illegal immigrants… Of course!
    * Establish safe “injection zones” run by government to oversee people injecting heroin!
    Yep, it all passed! You may consider forwarding this so that ALL Californians can be proud of our elected officials.

    East park Band Shell showing neglect due to lack of use and some decay and vandalism. Interior of shell looks terrible and is in need of painting. Mason City needs to lease the back of this out or office on site someone who will oversee it’s condition and rental. I ahve talked with many that state it needs to be moved, and some state the some trees block the line of site for concerts. I’s sad to see it go unused, could be and should be a great venue with all the southern exposure for seating. NO, MC has to build a NEW outdoor Pavilion, what a waste. At lease rent it out.

      I agree. In fact friends of ours wanted to put on a concert series there and were misdirected (lied to) by a park board member, I’m betting they would have leased it out too.
      Now as I understand the ‘city of ‘ actually controls it due to it’s historical value. The park board is in charge of it’s rental and that’s where the problems emerge. Maybe they need to be on the same page. If the city controls it then the street department must have some take due to the street area that it would seem needs to be blocked during events.
      Does renting the shell need park board clearance and if so why? Do all park shelter houses need park board clearance to rent?
      Do they list any technical/electrical or lighting diagrams on the shell anywhere, possible renters probably need to know that. It just seems just like many area’s of ‘city of ‘ control, it’s done half way and too difficult.

      Parks do not look good in general. Just go to other towns to see the difference in upkeep. But, the sculptures downtown are in perfect order. Thanks to our city employees for spending so much time in the downtown, they do a great job, they do what they are told and the orders come from their bosses who are controlled by elected persons who are controlled by 9 North Federal. Too bad they aren’t set out to keep up our parks and neighborhoods the same way. Dear Leader Robin and her lackeys get the attention while the rest of us taxpayers get the scraps – that’s life in Mason City. Would make a great story, don’t you all think?

            Did you know that weed pulling and general care of the flower beds throughout the city, including Central Park is performed by an army of local volunteers and local civic groups?? We do this because we have pride in our community and all the while it saves the city money and it builds a strong network of “grass roots” support. There are tons of opportunities available and Im sure openings for weed pullers. Stop in at City Hall and apply today! Thanking you in advance for your service.

            The people violating the no smoking rule most at Central Park are there after City Hall closes, the buses have left, and Police are too busy with other calls.

            One of big violators has long hair, wears a cap, and drives a three tone spray painted truck with no front bumper. But it’s no surprise that bunch causes a lot of problems down there, and keeps decent families from enjoying the park in the evening.

      Live near East Park and in the last 5 years have notice a big drop in activities there. Band Fest moved, Up in Smoke moving, car show gone, National Night Out left, occasional movie night. Was somebody in the front office pro-East Park and that person left? Nice wall behind the train but other areas are looking shoddy, especially with trimming around stuff and the big pumper truck that is sometimes parked down the hill from Kentucky Ave. tearing the piss out of the grass/ground in that area. Also seen some bikes riding up and down the sledding hill on a “race course” ruining the landscape, why?

    85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to “put away” — you may be interested in the following:
    Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?
    A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.
    Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?
    A: The Democratic Party.
    Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?
    A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US.
    Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?
    A: That’s right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!
    AND MY FAVORITE:
    After violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

    1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, But we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.
    Funny how that works. And here’s another one worth considering..
    2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.
    Actually, President Kennedy and Sargent Shriver were the first ones to misuse the SS account. They used SS funds to start the Peace Corps. Not the first or last time our money has been taken from American citizens and given to foreign nations.
    Things every US citizen should know and remember about Social Security and changes made.
    History Lesson on Your Social Security Card
    Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card
    were not to be used for identification purposes. Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.
    Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:
    1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary.
    No longer voluntary
    2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program. Now 7.65% on the first $127,200 (2017)
    3.) That the money the participant selected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year.
    No longer tax deductible
    4.) That the money the participants put into the independent ‘Trust Fund’ rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other Government program, and, Under Johnson the money was moved to the General Fund and Spent
    5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income. Under Clinton & Gore Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed. Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month only to learn that we are getting taxed on

    1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized
    2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.
    3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.
    4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer
    5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other Countries only dream about.
    6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about, yet they want America to be more like those other countries.
    Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.
    Makes you wonder who is doing the math. By the way………… …….

            This is from their website “The Republican-American has a socially and fiscally conservative editorial stance. It advocates pro-business government policies, such as tax cuts and regulatory reform. The Republican-American is quick to blow the whistle on wasteful use of tax dollars, as well as unnecessary growth of local, state or federal government. The newspaper is a frequent critic of the demands of organized labor, especially public-employee unions, arguing they compel governments and businesses to spend beyond their means.”

            Because of its stance on the issues, the Republican-American is more inclined to endorse Republican candidates in election years. However, the paper is not hesitant to support Democrats who share its views or are uniquely qualified for the positions they seek.

So, you are wrong in your statement that “it leans along way right” am I correct. Actually since it collaborates with the left, it is more. Least Biased.

Being “socially and fiscally conservative”, does not prove the RA leans “a long way right”. Your leftist brain has got you confused to the point that you can’t figure it out.
