Tremblay an Embarrassment to NH and All of New England

Rep. Stella Tremblay continues to embarrass New Hampshire and the dedication of the public employees.

The past week has been very hard on many of us here in New Hampshire and throughout New England. The Boston Marathon is a significant event for many Granite Staters.  Some run the marathon, some go to watch, others enjoy the day off from work. For the hard-working Boston Police, Fire and EMS Departments, this week has been one that they will never forget.

Over the last week, thousands have showed their support for the hard work of all the Boston area first responders.  Even before the bombing, hundreds of Boston area first responders were working on Patriots Day as part of the annual Boston Marathon. As the first bomb went off, police and firefighters (and many citizens) ran into the blast area to help the wounded.

Those first responders worked from 1 a.m. on Friday morning – when the hunt for the two bombers erupted in a fierce firefight – through until late in the evening when the younger brother was eventually captured in Watertown.

The dedication of these public employees has been commended over the past week with many Facebook and Twitter images with the tag #BostonStrong.

This is what disturbs me: That after all the hard work and dedication from the public employees of all the local police departments, the FBI and Homeland Security, one New Hampshire State Rep sends out a Facebook post that the Boston bombing was a Government Black Op terrorist attack.

The story continues on the NH Labor News

After the Newtown thing above, and I mean no offense (and maybe I am the fool), but I gotta go with DANPatch on this one.

"Wherever there is a lack of information conspiracy theories will fill the gap." True, but should a state rep be spreading them?
DANPatch April 25, 2013 at 03:59 AM
@Lori. Wrong yet again. We've all heard or read the fascist meme that The United States of America is a "Constitutional Republic." Unfortunately, civilization has yet to construct such a form of government. It's a meme. "Constitutional Republic" is also an oxymoron. Our form of government is in actuality a Democracy or Democratic Republic, and has been since its founding. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy Now I'm sure you'll chafe at the suggestion that the CIA fact book is an authoritative source, but it is. In fact the CIA is one of American history's most experienced experts in categorizing and analyzing forms of government throughout the world: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/fields/2128.html The educated among us accept that for over 200 years the United States has represented itself as a Democracy--as have most nations throughout the world. And I'll grant you that several of those countries spit the word "Democracy" out of their mouths as readily of America's own fascists do. But a Democracy--or alternatively, Democratic Republic--is what it remains to this day. I get that the meme among America's fascists--indeed the very meme that defines all of them--is that employing only the "Republic" part of our statutory form of government underscores the primacy of the Republican Party. That's simply a political canard, and has been throughout history.

Personally I think that state reps are a dime a dozen. NH has such a big legislature per capita that virtually anyone can become one. This is about a person's Facebook page, not a press release. It's a short story and the facts are in a single paragraph. I'm surprised that this is lost on people. I have friends that are good people but sign up for most every conspiracy theory ever written. Holding up a Facebook page like it's a press release is a bit thin. Of note is that when you want a good conspiracy theory you have to have a motivating goal, such as going to war with someone not truly an agressor against us. It doesn't make for a very good conspiracy theory. Reporting on anything less than a crime committed by a NH state rep outside of their legislative duty is a stretch. It would be a much more relevant issue in the face of legislation inspired by the events in Boston. Of the 400 reps that we have, 1 for every 3,000 citizens, expect to have all types of people, even conspiracy theorists. We have such a need for instant gratification in terms of getting information that we are going to have many more conspiracy theories when the public doesn't get information as fast as they want it. It's a shame to focus on anything other than justice being served and the regional pride that we all share about the collective citizen and local government responses to these evil acts by malignant people. We turned a horror story into inspiration which has amazed the world.

Ah yes, News Flash in the Pan. And how safe were we under your godhead Mr. Bush's watch? Only 250,000 killed, twice that many maimed, 8,000 of those killed our own, and over 65,000 maimed of our own, counting 9/11 itself--not counting 14 suicides a day. You've never donned a uniform in your life, have you, News Flash in the Pan? And no, you don't have to answer it, I already know the answer. And yet you slink in here with your cowardly potshots, your outright lies and misstatements, and your utterly asinine memes that have nothing whatsoever to do with Rep Tremblay's incompetence. The only way you get away with it, is your awareness that the backwaters of The Patch aren't actively moderated, so that your spew and off-topic Tourette's blurts successfully manage to clutter up every page you attack for the better part of the day. We get it. You're a spineless coward and 'tagger,' mindlessly wandering the blogs of Southern New Hampshire aimlessly lifting your leg on as many of them as you can get to. And you persist in getting away with it cuz Patch can't police you. During the 21st Century, Republican administrations have murdered, maimed, tortured and bankrupted hundreds of thousands of Americans. Bush's administrations raised the debt by over $5.6 Trillion, single handed. Meanwhile, fear-obsessed, racist cowards like you continue cowering and sputtering in fear. Sad, but all too predictable.
DANPatch April 25, 2013 at 12:54 PM
Anyone, and let me repeat that--ANYONE--that consults Infowars.com for 'facts' is demonstrably ignorant. Jones has been spinning his preposterous, utterly and thoroughly debunked, fascist conspiracy theories throughout the 21st century. His appeal is to the most weak-minded, illiterate, fear-obsessed, and cowardly individuals in America. And he's clearly on to something because there are millions of Americans in that category. There were NOT "as many as 6,000, even more" involved in a cover-up to dupe America into believing that Americans landed on the moon. The Boston Marathon bombing was NOT a secret, false-flag government 'Black Ops' conspiracy. ANYTHING can be Photoshop'd to a reasonably persuasive degree--at least long enough to instill fear into a couple of million idiots before the Photoshopping is forensically debunked. Anything video can be digitally altered very persuasively--just long enough to instill fear into a few million weak-minded Americans until it's forensically debunked. And Jones knows this. His brilliant calculus is that all he needs is about a week 'under the radar' to disseminate his media, then his acolytes begin 'Google-bombing' that media and the accompanying memes until The Drudge Report picks it up. Then he's golden. He's 'just' whacky enough to rarely attract national media. And all he has to do is target about 20 million weak-minded Americans with each campaign.

DANPatch, I had never heard of the website or the guy. I was just curious about a response regarding the private contractors. it appeaers as though the "villagers are ready to kill the monster" that Tremblay-stein is, yet no one has actually provided any reason whatsoever as to why they were there. I have not spent any time really looking into it as it seems so outrageous, but it is strange that someone can't just say, "Oh, Menino has them there every year to supplement local police", or something to that effect. I just want to clarify, I don't know the website, the people or its theories/conspiracies. And while I think that the claim is ridiculous, I am curious as to why someone wouldn't just say, the photos are fake or something else dismissing the claim.

The Boston Marathon Bombings footage, photos, recordings, forensic evidence, and witness accounts will be examined with a fine-toothed comb for the next year--or longer. I worked with the 6594th Photo Reconnaissance for three years. Their ability to determine forensic 'fingerprints' from both conventional and extremely high magnification images was the stuff of forensic legend even then--and that was over 30 years ago. The forensic digital analysis technology of today is vast orders of magnitude more effective--which is why most of it is classified Top Secret, and often Top Secret/Compartmentalized Information. Our Armed Forces work directly with the CIA, the NSA and Homeland Security in order to both employ and selective deploy that technology in an effort to protect Americans, America itself, and it's most sensitive resources. That's fact, though much of that technology is so incredible that I can understand how it's often treated as fiction. It's by no means fiction. At best, the Tsarnaev brothers will be determined to be lone, isolated actors. At worst, one or both of them may be determined to have been tangentially involved with other terrorist cells or networks. While I'm not entirely satisfied with Obama's often overreach in the areas of domestic surveillance and drone strikes, Osama Bin Laden was killed and Al Quaeda functionally decimated under his watch. But Al Quaeda isn't America's only threat.
DANPatch April 25, 2013 at 01:54 PM
"Regime"? The Bush Administrations were a 'regime.' The Obama Administration, hamstrung as it was from the outset, has been by no stretch of the whackiest imagination a 'regime.' Obama's Administration to date has been in 'first responder' mode, putting out the fires and destruction of the 8-year Bush Administration--arguably the most corrupt Administration in modern American History. To the extent that the current Administration is viewed as hapless, that's simply an all too convenient canard. Obama's had to rely almost exclusively on Executive Orders due to the ineptitude of the U.S. Congress--the historically least effective Congress of America's last 80 years. That he's managed to accomplish what he has, given the roadblocks he inherited, while still killing Osama Bin Laden are small miracles in themselves, since he's had no help whatsoever from one entire branch of our system of government. He also gained a second term--no mean feat in itself. Those so out of touch with reality that they can't grasp the obvious remain their own worst enemy. But like it or not, Obama's our President for thee more years. We can either go out of our way to further hurt America or we can shelve a few differences for a couple more years and pull together--then let the mayhem begin yet again once we've recovered. Anyone unwilling to cooperate in such an undertaking should be ashamed of themselves.

Repeatedly duplicate and cross-post all of your outdated information all you like, News Flash. It's only a matter of time until The Patch Moderators come in and remove all but one each of your off-topic comments here. Everyone in this thread is already onto you. You're simply 'white noise' now--on this thread, anyway. But please, waste even more time here a bit longer--all day if need be. At least it'll keep you from tagging all the other thread in The Patch. Happy to be a magnet for you. But honestly, no one's paying any further attention to you today.

DANPatch, Why do YOU feel the need to be the MODERATOR of this site? You are by far the biggest offender of STRAYING OFF TARGET, personal attacks while trying to be the resident expert on EVERYTHING. You have posted 30 times on this ONE Blog while News Flash has posted only 11 times (mostly off topic). Until the official moderators of PATCH feel the need to censure News Flash maybe you can try and stay ON TOPIC for a change, and stop BULLYING everyone that doesn't agree with your point of view. Stop being the resident dictator. Just my opinion.

George Bush's popularity rating is now just about the same as Obama's. People are finally waking up to the disastrous presidency we are having to endure and the devastating long-term effects it will have on this country.
DANPatch April 25, 2013 at 02:53 PM
There's an all too obvious answer, JPF36. I'm one of only three people that have remained on the topic, or at least tried--with little success--to steer the discussion back to the topic. The remaining commenters have admittedly succeeded in keeping this thread off-topic for three days now. Rather a hollow victory. But 'hollow' victories seem to be all the off-topic posters care to achieve. The pattern is obvious. And it will in all likelihood continue a bit longer throughout The Patch until folks with some spine start pushing back. But I'll give you that you and your ilk are 'winning' for the moment, as pyrrhic and pointless as that victory is. The Patch will figure it out in time. Or, as apparent in this thread alone, disinformation will triumph--yet again--over apathy. It is rather unfortunate that those who initiated this thread simply abandoned it . . . but I can't say as I much blame them, given the incessant spamming.

Americans are, and always have been, a forgiving Society. Obama's hovered around 51% to 58% over the past few months. Bush has pulled up to 47% in the Right-leaning Gallup demographic mix. The fact remains that Bush's Administration will never be held in the same high regard as Bush personally. Cheney, by contrast, remains at a 13% approval rating. Which is the far more telling metric by which Bush's Administration remains in the lowest double-digits. Gauging morality based on approval ratings is an interesting meme--desperate, but interesting nonetheless. But it's laughable to call the Obama Administration 'disastrous' if the Bush Administration is the metric. The Bush Administration will go down in the annals of American history as the most disastrous, disingenuous and destructive of the past 100 years. That's not popularity polling, it's historical fact.

Here is Homeland Security ordering 260 million rounds of ammunition. Citizens and local reps should just ignore this and trust Napolitano. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/apr/25/sequester-tight-budgets-means-dhs-buying-less-ammu/ This also relates to the topic at hand.

I'll trust the Moderators to determine if any of this endless regurgitation of fascist blogger article postings are on-topic. If they wish to send the message that The Patch is simply a blank wall to be tagged and spray-painted day in day out, they'll ignore your incessant off-topic posts. If they wish The Patch to remain an actual 'forum' they'll delete them when they get around to it. We get the strategy: copy and paste, copy and paste all day long and hope that the thread remains un-moderated long enough for you to admire your off-topic vandalism. Wikipedia used to face the same daily vandalism until they found a way to apply more resources to defeat it. The Patch is only The Patch. I'm sure they'll do the best they can.

Sure. Do we all, yes we all do. Do democrats want this reaction to their environment? Yes they do. Clear thinking people reject extreme liberal and progressive policies and democrats do not want that.
DANPatch April 25, 2013 at 04:12 PM
You missed a few memos, News Flash. In fact your sources claimed as high a 450 million rounds were being ordered by "Homeland Security." Dismissing entirely the deliberate disingenuousness of those sources, you also appear to have missed the memos citing "Homeland Security buying 2,700 tanks to put down anticipated armed insurrection" from the "They're coming to take our guns" crowd. Infowars.com, the source of an inordinate amount of this kind of tripe, depends on desperate, low-information Americans utterly ignorant of the Federal Procurement System and its regulations for its readership. To the extent that they can continue to fabricate new daily and weekly conspiracies, they'll continue to get hits, and Alex Jones will continue to get $19.95 a month from his hundreds of thousands of desperately delusional subscribers. http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/ssabullets.asp
