  • nursejdavis: I am looking for a few Press Releases from Kevin Hillman that have disappeared.... not sure why they would be hidden from the public unless they contain narcs who have gotten their charges dropped for their cooperation. Seems the same Press Releases were also deleted from Facebook. Thanks for any help in locating these

  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Lepard LLC: Why so long before it comes online? 911 took out a loan or bond with the known guarantee payment and began building..

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: You mean that tax that the Commissioners would not put on the ballot for so many years? Strange things happened when the citizens got a chance to vote on that issue.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

  • Lepard LLC: Is that true Valor? Did he ask you what you wanted?
    March 01, 2016, 04:55:37 AM
  • Lepard LLC: Gene Newkirk Rick I have waited for a Sheriff to bring it to me on what he wanted. I have pushed Mr long for a while to get it to me. He told me he was close to having or done. Now hopefully the people will get to decide on it. I spoke with Steve about this a few times.

The New York Times has a profile of the PFC who leaked classified documents to WikiLeaks:
 
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/09/us/09manning.html?th=&emc=th&pagewanted=all
 
The picture painted by the New York Times -- which I think we can all concur does not have a conservative pro-military bias -- shows a soldier with serious problems including assaulting an officer. He joined the military after being fired from various jobs and being thrown out of his father's home because he was homosexual. He had made a point of criticizing religion in the middle of the Bible Belt as early as his school days, even refusing to say the "God" part of the Pledge of Allegience, which is of course his constitutional right, but could have been been an early indicator not just of legitimate and respectful dissent but also of a contrarian personality. He was not only politically liberal (which is fine in the Army, and should be) but also spending time with liberal politically motivated computer hackers. That should be just as much of a problem as a political conservative on active duty spending his time with anti-government extremists. On top of everything else, he was dating a self-described drag queen while serving on active duty -- not exactly a recipe for acceptance or a long-term military career.
 
My first question: How did this guy get and keep his security clearance?
 
My second question: Since this PFC's off-duty antics were apparently fairly well known, did concern by his supervisors about not violating the "don't ask" part of "don't ask, don't tell" play a role in him not only not getting discharged but also keeping his security clearance? Do we have a problem similar to the shoot-em-up psychiatrist, with his supervisors fearing they would be accused of an anti-Muslim bias if they paid appropriate attention to the warning signs?
 
I have numerous other questions, but many of them probably won't get answered until this guy's court-martial, unless he chooses to go public to the media. At least for now, his military-appointed JAG defense attorney is declining interviews on his behalf.

I hope  if he is found guilty, they find him guilty as a traitor.

I definatly belief some in his chain of command need to go down for this too. There were entirely too many issues for this individual to have acess to a computer thaat had all this data on it, not to mention, he either emailed or downloaded this material, and no secutrity precautions caught any of that.
He is guilty of being a traitor, and could face theifiring squad, but alot of people in his unit should have stopped it before it began.
