      They let him resign, when he was really fired for doing what liberals do best, lying about our president. They should have fired him years ago. Next will be Juan Williams.

        No one is lying about him thru the news he is corrupted and lies constantly that the news can easily prove each false claim he makes and its pathetic you trump supporters don’t see it or you’re just too damn stubborn to admit he made you all look stupid for voting for him.

        He reported true facts about Trump, which is what the alt-right, otherwise known as Nazi terrorists, don’t want. Juan Williams is too knowledgeable for Faux News audience’s comfort, too.

    Oh, I agree. It’s very hard to fix this City. And it’s because of folks like Max Weaver who don’t support pro-growth strategies and fiercely resist change. Every city has a contingent of folks like Max Weaver, the difference is this community caves to their childish outbursts in city council meetings every time. The fact HyVee wouldn’t even talk to our city leaders about their distribution center because of past city council conduct should speak volumes about why this city is dying.

      Max does what is best for the city. He balances resources with assets and makes the right decision. How many times have the elites remodeled downtown. Always saying that will save the city and it does nothing. They bring in a couple of bars and think they have done something. Thursday night music is nice if you are a park tweaker.

    The City of Mason City Water Supply Division will be flushing water mains in the southeast quadrant of town, all areas east of Federal Avenue and south of Highway 122, starting Monday October 14th and will continue through Friday, October 25th.

    Water customers may notice some discoloration of the water after the mains have been flushed, however, the water is safe to drink. Caution should be used when washing clothing because discolored water may cause staining.

    The public is asked not to park near or across from fire hydrants during this period of time. If citizens have questions, please phone the Water Supply Division at 641/421-3685.

    Pretty soon Trump will say he knows Rudy G only slightly. He will deny that Rudy is his personal attorney and that what he does on his own time has nothing to do with Donny. Then, he will say he wants to see Donny Jr.’s birth certificate because he isn’t sure he is the daddy and he doesn’t really know him well.

You don’t ever want us to say how we really feel…if our answers or statements don’t fit YOUR agenda….or your own personal beliefs, you don’t want to hear it! And THAT is the reason why Donald Trump beat all of you in 2016! You want to win? Then you need to LISTEN! You need to accept what we’re saying, and what we WANT! You all swear an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States of America….so help me God….but none of you really do it or even believe in that! And, as shown by the results of the 2016 presidential election, that makes a good deal of you traitors.

    Turn on the news:
    At the Trump rally in Minnesota, Trump supporters shout USA and support for law enforcement.
    Outside the rally:
    Cowards covering their faces. ANTIFA starting fires and calling law enforcement officers pigs, burning objects, breaking windows and throwing things at police. Surrounding the cars of Trump supporters and not allowing them to leave. Disrespecting our flag.
    Protest is one thing. Violence and anarchy is another.
    I hear some folks say that “both sides” are at fault. Not accurate.
    One side respects America, the Constitution and the rule of law. They understand the blood and sacrifice embodied in our Stars & Stripes. They believe that Americans are Americans and hyphens are unnecessary.
    One side seeks to divide us by race and economic class. They call Police “pigs,” disrespect our flag, encourage anarchy, call our brave soldiers “baby killers” and embrace socialism.
    Turn on the TV and watch it for yourself. Watch these scum taunt our brave law enforcement officers and throw objects at them.
    The choice is clear in the coming election.

    Lying is habitual, it’s reinforced by success, the reinforcement is magnified when the reward is greater. Warren is very dangerous, because she has internalized her successful deception as reality and feels that she’s “worthy of greatness” because of the fake life story she’s advertised. “You Didn’t Build That” was plagiarized from a Professor in California’s previous speech

    **MAX WEAVER is running for CITY COUNCIL against Paul Adams. Adams only supports elites,
    And has never had an original thought on his own. He is nothing but a yes man for Lee.

            No surprise there. You have absolutely no idea how much debt the city of Mason City has. Yet you run your mouth like you’re some sort of expert on how cities should be managed.

            I’ll key you into this much. Mason City has about 1/3 of the debt as a fast growing city like Ankeny. 33%!!! So according to you, a town loaded with debt should be failing and a terrible place to live. Yet Ankeny, with almost 200% more debt obligations than Mason City grows like a weed and churns out new businesses almost daily. Seems like there is something to be said about cities that invest in themselves rather than trying to squeeze pennies to appease their lowest common denominator.

    “Deliberate outages could become the new normal in an era in which scientists say climate change is leading to fiercer blazes and longer fire seasons.” I am calling B.S. on this. The fiercer fire are caused by inept forest management practices. But pulling the well worn “climate change” excuse out of the hat is a nice out for lack of accountability.

      The outage in California has nothing to do with scientists, and everything to do with corporate greed. PG&E, Pacific Gas and Electric, has for years diverted funds that should have gone for infrastructure maintenance and upgrades, to pay stock dividends instead. Thus, corporate executives, whose salaries and bonuses are tied to stock prices, got richer, as did the stockholders, at the expense of their customers. Now that the chickens are coming home to roost, they want to blame scientists. Alliant Energy obviously watched and learned from their example, as they’re doing the same thing to us right now.

    The Chinese government has murdered “hundreds of thousands” of members of the Uighur Muslim minority and the Falun Gong religious group to harvest their organs, a human rights lawyer has claimed. The China Tribunal, a group investigating the organ harvesting, said at a meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council on Tuesday that the Chinese government was taking hearts, kidneys, lungs, and skin from persecuted religious groups. “Forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience, including the religious minorities of Falun Gong and Uighurs, has been committed for years throughout China on a significant scale, and that it continues today. This involves hundreds of thousands of victims,” Trump is right. China is not our friend like Biden says.

      This is what Clapper said “The message I’m getting from all this is apparently what we were supposed to have done was to ignore the Russian interference, ignore the Russian meddling and the threat that it poses to us, and oh, by the way, blown off what the then commander-in-chief, President Obama, told us to do, which was to assemble all the reporting that we could, that we had available to us — and put it in one report that the president could pass on to the Congress and to the next administration. And while we’re at it, declassify as much as we possibly could to make it public, and that’s what we did.”

      Your interpretation of Clapper’s words are so far out there it is laughable. You really need to go back to school and take some classes in English comprehension.

      The corruption in our government is rampant and Trump is not innocent in that corruption. You freak out over Biden and his son but give Trump a pass when he employs his daughter and son-in-law in the White House (while their businesses profit from that employment) and allows his sons to conduct business with our allies and enemies with secret service protection and work out ‘deals’ with his hotels to house our servicemen overseas. His weekly golfing excursions put thousands of dollars into his businesses. Money given to his campaign results in a government position regardless of your experience or expertise in that area.

    The House has “not established any procedures affording the President even the most basic protections demanded by due process under the Constitution and by fundamental fairness” in violation of “every past precedent.” Trump should have the right to access evidence, examine witnesses, and have counsel present at hearings, Cipollone said. The Committees must also disclose evidence that is favorable to the president.

        I hope you conspiracy garbage humans pay close attention to what trump did with pulling troops out of Syria now turkey has invaded our allies who fought with us to stop ISIS and that means where the thousands of ISIS are being held captive will soon be free because the kurds have to go to the front line and defend it and not only that but women and children will be slaughter.

        Trump has dealings with turkey and Russia who reportly are helping turkey coordinate the attacks if you can’t see trump made some kind of deal because I can promise you this is no coincidence then you are just as stupid as him.

      Did you read the report?
      1st finding:, The Committee found, that the IRA sought to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election by harming Hillary Clinton’s chances of success and supporting Donald Trump at the direction of the Kremlin.
      2nd finding – the Committee found that IRA social media activity was overtly and almost invariably supportive of then-candidate Trump, and to the detriment .of Secretary Clinton’s campaign·
      3rd – Despite Moscow’s denials, the direction and financial involvement of Russian oligarch Yevgeniy Prigozhin, as well as his close ties to high-level Russian government officials including President Vladimir Putin, point to significant Kremlin support, authorization, and direction of the IRA’ s operations and goals.
      4th -The Committee found that the IRA targeted not only Hillary Clinton, but also
      Republican candidates during the presidential primaries. For example, Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were targeted and denigrated, as was Jeb Bush.
      Another – That analysis found that in terms of user engagement, the top two
      intentionally false election stories on Facebook included articles alleging Pope Francis’ endorsement of Donald Trump for President (960,000 shares, reactions, and comments), and WikiLeaks’ confirmation of Hillary Clinton’s sale of weapons to ISIS (789,000 shares, reactions, and comments).·
      These are only a few of the findings. Trump says that Putin says Russia didn’t interfere in the election and he believes him. How in the hell can anyone believe him?

      By the way, no where in the report does it “highlight” the Obama administration’s failure to work and warn with social media. It does say that not enough was done but it also states it is an extremely difficult job to find, expose and shut down these types of interference but that our ability to do so has increased greatly in the past 3 years.

    NIACC PERFORMANCE SERIES: seems to have taken a downward spiral in the quality of performances and attendance. I went to several events where hardly any tickets were sold. Over the past couple of years the talent has dropped off. Now “Homefront” saved their dismal talent schedule last year but wow was it weak. NOW multiple-acts tickets are for sale,bundling,doing whatever they can to put butts in the seats of fair quality acts. Cutting ticket deals is not a good sign. Pam Tillis has been out of the limelight 25 years. Kris K better sell well to once again save their butts. Such a nice facility, needs new seats though(kinda squeaky). I have no idea what changes were made over the past couple years, but switch back or the downtown facility will kick your butt.

    “President Trump’s abrupt decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria and end U.S. protection for Kurdish fighters upended Middle East policy, roiled advisers, and was met with blistering criticism on Monday from lawmakers and international allies.
    It was “time for us to get out,” Trump said, before bending slightly under the weight of public criticism.
    The president issued a dire warning to Turkey via Twitter on Monday. But on Sunday, he was less focused on the Syrian Kurds and the impact in the region of Turkey’s planned military offensive than on withdrawing U.S. forces. “As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey,” he wrote on Monday.
    “There’s no green light. We’re protecting our troops,” a senior administration official told reporters, noting Trump ordered “50 to 100” U.S. troops to safe locations elsewhere in the region. U.S. forces evacuated two observation posts at Tel Abyad and Ras al Ain on Monday, a U.S. official added.
    Howls of protest and disbelief were heard in the U.S. Capitol and in Europe. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) warned the president against “a precipitous withdrawal” that would benefit Russia, Iran, President Bashar Assad of Syria and the Islamic State. McConnell urged the president to “exercise American leadership” (The New York Times).
    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a Trump ally in Congress and a key senator who opposes efforts to remove Trump from office, joined Democrats in saying he wants to block the president’s moves with Turkey, a NATO ally, if possible.
    “This impulsive decision by the president has undone all the gains we’ve made, thrown the region into further chaos; Iran is licking its chops, and if I’m an ISIS fighter, I’ve got a second lease on life,” he said on “Fox & Friends.”
    “To those who think ISIS has been defeated, you will soon see; and to Turkey, you have destroyed the relationship, what little you had, with the U.S. Congress, and I will do everything I can to sanction Turkey’s military and their economy if they step one foot into Syria,” Graham added (Defense News).
    The U.S. withdrawal will leave Kurdish-led forces in Syria vulnerable to a planned incursion by the Turkish military.”

      Alliant is screwing us on these rates, and screwing the landowners where they’re putting those windmills. Mason City needs it’s own municipal power generation, like other communities do. Elected officials, get off your asses and stop these greedy companies from preying on us!

          Alliant told them not to, so they didn’t. Same with Mediacom. Other, smaller communities have municipally-owned power and phone/tv/broadband service, but we can’t because we keep electing toadies.

    *The American Federation of Teachers was formed in 1916 and the NEA has been around since the mid 1800’s. Warren certainly doesn’t or didn’t do any research before she opened her mouth and inserted her foot.

    * More horse crap…whistleblowers, first told ABC News that the second individual is – like the first whistleblower – an intelligence official, and has firsthand knowledge of certain allegations contained in the first whistleblower complaint, which was not based on any firsthand knowledge. Total crap.

      They’re called patriots, devoted to their country, not a political party or person.

    * We already have the transcript. Is this so ‘ol Shifty is no longer in the spotlight over the first whistleblower and he won’t be a material witness on this one, avoiding conflict of interest? Smells of an inside hit job. Time to clear house Mr. President.

      It’s an indication that the case is still developing. Trump should clean house? He can hardly get anybody to work for him now. He throws everybody under the bus over the first little thing, so why should anybody show him any loyalty?

    * No experience for the office of President! That would mean he doesn’t have the corruption that we seem to be finding everyday with the professional politicians. Didn’t realize there could be so much corruption with our money. Most of Congress works for themselves and forget about WE the People!

      No useful experience of any kind, and no ethics, intelligence, morals, manners, or dignity. Just Twitter and hookers.

    *With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War. Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!” That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. So, say anything you want about President Trump- I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!

    *The letter has been sent. The members of the US House of Reps will have to go on official record; if they won’t, then the President and his administration won’t comply with any demands.
