NBC29 WVIR Charlottesville, VA News, Sports and Weather - Saturday, February 16, 2013 - Protesters Crash Democrat Breakfast Demanding Dumler Resign - NBC 29 .
(2) Albemarle Democrats Cancel Dumler Appearance - Daily Progress - Embattled Albemarle Supervisor Christopher J. Dumler will not appear at a Democratic Party event this morning that attracted attention from several would-be protestors.
The Albemarle and Charlottesville Democratic committees originally invited Dumler and Supervisor Ann H. Mallek to speak about issues facing county government in the coming year.
Cynthia Neff, vice-chair of the Albemarle Democrats, said in an email Friday morning that the event has been postponed.
Instead, the party will stage a reading from Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s new book “The Last Line of Defense.” at 9:30 a.m. at CitySpace on the Downtown Mall.
“Cuccinelli’s book has drawn attention statewide for its attacks on Medicare, Social Security and even public recreation centers,” Neff said in a statement.
Neff declined to comment for the reasons for the program change.
Dumler pleaded guilty Jan. 31 to a misdemeanor charge of sexual battery. He had been charged in October with one count of forcible sodomy.
His scheduled appearance at the Democratic breakfast sparked a call on Facebook for the event to be picketed.
A petition drive to ask the Albemarle Circuit Court to consider removing Dumler from office is also under way.
(3) Sending a Message: Russian Bear Bombers Caught Circling Guam Before Obama Delivered the State of the Union - The Blaze - NBC News has confirmed with U.S. military officials that two Russian Bear bombers were circling the U.S. territory of Guam last week at roughly the same time President Obama delivered his State of the Union address. The planes were capable of carrying nuclear cruise missiles, the report adds, and while they stayed in international airspace, the United States scrambled F-15 jets from the Andersen Air Force Base to intercept them.
The exchange “stayed professional,” one source said, despite the unusual encounter.
“It wasn’t provocative but it certainly got our attention,” another source elaborated.
The Washington Free Beacon, which broke the story, notes that this isn’t the first time that Russian jets have been caught poking around U.S. territories. Over the summer, they were caught simulating attacks on on “enemy” air defenses and strategic facilities near Alaska.
The U.S. has stated its hope of “pressing the reset button” with Russia, and President Obama signed a strategic arms reduction treaty with Russian President Medvedev in February 2011. Read more........
(4) Neil Snyder: President Obama has Set in Motion Forces that He Can't Handle - American Thnker - Barack Obama is a terrible president. That's obvious to everyone who isn't chronically ignorant or incurably liberal. By "liberal" I don't mean the classic definition of the word which has to do with being open-minded and objective. I mean the modern version of liberal: self-centered, emotional, illogical, and void of reason. Unfortunately, in 2012 ignoramuses and liberals represented the majority of those who voted. I'm not worried about offending them with my harsh words. My very existence offends them, and so does yours if you don't buy into their worldview......This is the point: a perfect storm is brewing. I think we're heading for a chaotic and violent period in this country the likes of which no one alive today has ever witnessed. If I'm right, conditions will be ideal for criminals to ply their craft, and President Obama is pushing for gun control at precisely the wrong moment.
I believe that what I have described is realistic and unfortunately inevitable, and that brings me back to my back to the president. He has set in motion forces that he can't handle, and all of us are going to suffer the consequences so get ready for a wild ride. Read more.......
