The Truth Is Out There

Dear Editor:

Within the last couple of years the mainstream media across the country has made an unannounced but obviously coordinated effort to suppress reporting of race and gang information when reporting on violent crime. The only exception to this practice is when the suspect is white and the victim is not, in which case the media may report the demographics involved if they can wedge race-baiting into the story somehow.

This has been common practice in recent years in Europe, too, in order to suppress reporting of the crime wave brought by violent refuge immigrants. All this has given rise to the alternative, underground media. The truth is out there, but you're not going to find it on CNN/ABC/NBC/Associated Press, etc. You have to Google for it yourself. And if anyone really cares you should know that random, unprovoked, race-based violence is soaring, and one of the most under-reported (we're talking complete media blackout) classes of crime.

To the Editor:

So many in the media seem to view polls as the gospel and place a premium on recent polls. If this is true for you and you are buying into the media hype that Hillary Clinton is destined to be the Democratic nominee, you might want to consider the following views I have been following in the news. A recent Quinnipiac poll states 72 percent of Independents don't believe Clinton is honest and trustworthy. This is a dangerous number for Democrats since 43 percent of Americans according to Gallup are independent. Also, 49 percent (compared to 44 percent) of American women don't view Clinton as honest or trustworthy, while over 62% of voters ages 35-64 don't find Clinton honest or trustworthy. From ages 18 to over 65, there was no age group that found Clinton honest or trustworthy, and 59 percent of Americans age 18-34 don't find Clinton to be honest or trustworthy.

Altogether, 51 percent of registered voters have an unfavorable view of Clinton and in general Americans don't trust the former Secretary of State. 59 percent of American voters believe Clinton is "not honest and trustworthy." 55 percent of American voters say "she does not share their values." 50 percent of American voters feel Clinton "does not care about their needs and problems." Like every other poll in 2008 and 2015 illustrating Clinton's wide lead over a challenger, voters say they'll vote for a candidate they don't trust, or feel doesn't care about their problems.

Honest Liberal?

To the Editor:

If "honest liberal" isn't an oxymoron, Camille Paglia fits the profile, writing in Salon, August 2013 summed up Hillary Clinton pretty well. In her own words:
It remains baffling how anyone would think that Hillary Clinton (born the same year as me) is our party’s best chance. She has more sooty baggage than a 90-car freight train. And what exactly has she ever accomplished — beyond bullishly covering for her philandering husband? She’s certainly busy, busy and ever on the move — with the tunnel-vision workaholism of someone trying to blot out uncomfortable private thoughts...I for one think it was a very big deal that our ambassador was murdered in Benghazi... As far as I’m concerned, Hillary disqualified herself for the presidency in that fist-pounding moment at a congressional hearing when she said, “What difference does it make what we knew and when we knew it, Senator?” Democrats have got to shake off the Clinton albatross and find new blood.

Council Defers on Grand Resorts Resolution

Grand Resorts, the planned development put forth by developer Tom Torgerson, has been a hot topic all over Lee County. However, the epicenter of discussion has been Fort Myers Beach. Residents showed up en masse at a joint meeting between the FMB Town Council and Lee County Commissioners at the end of November last year where the scope of the project was first revealed, and again at the Chapel by the Sea in December, where a standing room only crowd packed in to watch another presentation by Torgerson and his team from TPI Hospitality. The Residents of the Beach Town once again showed up in large numbers at the Fort Myers Beach Town Council’s first regular meeting of 2016, where a Resolution was on the agenda regarding the properties seawall.

While the Grand Resorts, as a concept, is one enormous project, the land it is planned to be built on is constituted of several parcels. In this article, we look to break down each individual property involved. This includes who owns it now, how much it was purchased for, and where it fits into the Grand Resorts, should it proceed as currently envisioned.
