Small Town Sends Armored Vehicle And 24 Officers To Collect Debt From 75-year-old man

Published

on

From Truth and Action

The sheriff of the small Wisconsin town Stettin sent an armored military vehicle and 24 armed police officers to collect a debt from a 75-year-old man who owed the municipality $86,000 due to a civil judgement.

The police called the the armored vehicle in when the knocked on the door and nobody answered, yet they could hear noises inside. This alarmed the police enough to call in the armored vehicle, fearing the 75-year-old man, fearing for their safety, they state.

The small town Stettin, Wisconsin has deployed their armored vehicle 53 times since they acquired it in 2011.

That is certainly a lot for such a small town. When boys have toys they tend to play with them.

The Pentagon has been giving small and large towns across America machines of war that were previously used in Iraq and Afghanistan for many years.

When civil war or martial law finally hits the States, all the war machines will be put into use to quell the populace.

Hoeppner owns about 20 acres outside of town, where he restores antique tractors and runs a pallet repair business, according to the Journal Sentinel. In 2008, the town sued Hoeppner over claimed violations of ordinances about zoning, signs, rubbish and vehicles. The two parties settled a year later, but Stettin officials felt he reneged on the deal and filed for a motion for contempt and enforcement. In September 2010, a judge ordered Hoeppner to clean up his land. The property owner didn’t comply, and so the judge then authorized the town to seize assets, which officials did in summer of 2011, selling the tractors, pallets and other items for “pennies on the dollar,” Lister said. Hoeppner was then issued a $500-a-day fine in April 2013 for his previous non-compliance.

“This has been a long outstanding problem between the resident and the township and it’s been contentious. We’ve had deputies go to town board meetings to do security. We know we’ve had our staff involved to mediate this over a number of months trying to calm the situation and it never got any better,” Billeb said.

By October 2, that daily fine amounted to $86,000, which the town sought to collect that day. When Hoeppner failed to open the door, deputies called in the Marathon County Response Vehicle (MRAV) and began inventorying the items on the property.

That brought the 75-year-old then out of the house, but he soon got “pushy” and tried bowling past them, police said, according to the Daily Herald. That’s when a lieutenant handcuffed the property owner.

“I’ve been involved in about five standoff situations where, as soon as the MARV showed up, the person gives up,” saving the county time, money and increasing safety, Bean said to the Journal-Sentinel. “People may not always understand why, but an armored vehicle is almost a necessity now.”

The department obtained the armored ‒ but not weaponized ‒ vehicle in 2011, and it has since been deployed 53 times.

The 75-year-old and his wife have filed a claim for damages against the town in the amount of $4.5 million, according to WSAW.

“It’s a long-running, heavily litigated dispute over his use of his property,” another of Hoeppner’s lawyers (on an unrelated matter), Jeff Scott Olson, told the Journal-Sentinel. “They’re trying to collect in a very heavy-handed manner.”

Stettin officials agreed to drop $6,000 from his bill, in exchange for Hoeppner paying the bill that day without the town needing to haul away and sell the equipment from his property.

“The $86,000 figure is enough to shock most men,” the 75-year-old said. “And they wanted it now, today.”

Hoeppner estimates that his prolonged battle with the town has cost him about $200,000, a retirement fund he “worked very hard to accumulate,” he told the Journal-Sentinel. In addition, he said, the events on October 2 upset his wife so much that he had to take her to a hospital for a few hours that day.

Trump Had ENOUGH! Just Signed a 5-Year Ban….This is HUGE!

It’s happening!

Published

on

President Trump has been in office for less than a year, and he is more determined than ever to make sure his agenda to make America great again does not fail. After the Supreme Court ruled that President Trump’s travel ban was indeed constitutional, he is not wasting any more time and pushing through more initiatives to strengthen our country. Over this past weekend, Trump took his presidential pen and signed an executive order to help restore sincerity and honesty in Washington, which has the left screaming foul.

Now, this is how you drain the swamp.

President Trump is making good on his campaign promises, and the left cannot stand it.

First, Trump scored a significant win when the Supreme Court reinstated the travel ban and then shortly after that he officially recognized Jeresulam as the capital of Israel, which had leftists melting like snowflakes in July. As these fragile liberals are still recovering from a massive dose of #MAGA, Trump used that momentum to sign into action another executive order to drain the swamp.

In another effort to keep more of his campaign promises, Trump ended backroom deals and put government employees on notice in his latest executive order.

President Donald Trump fulfilled an essential portion of his pledge to “drain the swamp” in Washington, by banning administration officials from ever lobbying the U.S. on behalf of a foreign government and imposing a separate five-year ban on all lobbying activities.

Trump has said individuals who want to aid him in his mission to “Make America Great Again” should focus on the jobs they will be doing to help the American people, and not to be thinking ahead to their future income they could rake in by peddling their influence after serving in the government.

This new ban that Trump signed supersedes the one that Barack Obama signed in 2009, that banned anyone from lobbying the government for a period of two years after leaving the government. Though what makes Trump’s ban better than Obama’s is that the new ban closes up all the “loopholes” that the former ban allowed.

Soon after making that monumental move, Trump went on to sign two more executive orders that show just how serious Trump is about making our country great again.

Here is more from Breitbart:

President Donald J. Trump signed three new executive actions on Saturday afternoon, including a five-year lobbying ban, reorganization of the National Security Council, and a plan to defeat the Islamic State.

Regarding the lobbying ban, Trump said:

So this is a five-year lobbying ban, and this is all of the people — most of the people standing behind me will not be able to go to work.

It’s a two-year ban now and it’s got full of loopholes and this is a five-year ban. So you have one last chance to get out. Good, I had a feeling you were going to say that.

This was something, the five-year ban, that I have been taking a lot about on the campaign trail.

Ahead of the signing, a senior administration official indicated that the lobbying ban included not only a five-year ban on administration officials but a lifetime ban on administration officials lobbying for a foreign country.

After signing the document to reorganize the National Security Council, the President said, “This is the organization of the National Security Council and the Homeland Security Council, you know pretty much what it represents, it represents a lot, and also a lot of efficiency and I think a lot of additional safety. People have been talking about this for a long time, like many years.”

President Trump signed the ISIS plan, after which he said, “This is the plan to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, in other words, ISIS. I think it’s going to be very successful. That’s big stuff.”

The White House senior administration official also said ahead of the signing that the executive action regarding ISIS would give military leaders 30 days to compile and present a report to the President on a strategy to defeat ISIS.

The President responded to questions about Friday’s executive order on immigration after signing each of the three executive actions, stating, “It’s not a Muslim ban, but we were totally prepared. It’s working out very nicely. You see it at the airports, you see it all over.”

President Trump is doing precisely what the American people sent him to Washington D.C. to do, and that is to bring integrity back to the government. Under the Obama administration, everything was sold off to the highest bidder which did not serve the American people, but only helped fatten the lobbyist’s pocketbooks, and that is about to end.

Thank you, President Trump, for putting the American people first and doing your best to make America great again!

Obama Swore It Was Impossible And Refused To Do It It In 8 Years – Trump Just Did It Before The End Of His First

Published

on

It’s been almost a year since President Trump took office and his predecessor still hasn’t gotten the message that this is Trump’s America now. Former President Obama continues to physically follow President Trump around, attempting to undo whatever the President does, despite the fact that Obama had 8 years to have his way with America, and many facets of our society are still deeply scared because of it.

One of those facets is the economy. Despite what the die-hard Democrats will tell you, record number of people on welfare and higher tax rates isn’t what makes for a great economy. Manufacturing jobs, lower taxes, and increased incentives to produce jobs is what makes for a strong and thriving economy, something that President Trump knows a thing or two about.

In fact, Obama was so sure that the America would never again be able to increase it’s manufacturing jobs, he promised it while he was in office. He made sure that everyone knew that was absolutely no hope for the American worker. Enter President Trump. According to America’s News Hub and CNBC, reports now confirm that 40,000 manufacturing jobs have come back in just one month. It’s understandable that Obama might be confused, after all, his resume is a little lacking in anything to do with real life jobs and businesses.

“The manufacturing industry posted its best month of job gains all year, leading a better-than-expected rise in private payrolls during November.

Companies added 190,000 in the month as the economy seemed to return to normal following the violent hurricane season, according to the monthly report from ADP and Moody’s Analytics. The total was just above the 185,000 expected from economists surveyed by Reuters and below the 235,000 growth in October.

The manufacturing sector added 40,000 positions alone.

‘The job market is red hot, with broad-based job gains across industries and company sizes,’ Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s, said in a statement Wednesday. ‘There is a mounting threat that the job market will overheat next year.’

The growth comes as the government’s headline unemployment rate is at 4.1 percent, a 17-year low that economists believe will continue to decline. The Labor Department will release its closely watched official nonfarm payrolls count Friday, with economists expecting growth of 175,000 and the jobless rate holding steady.

‘We’re going sub-4 percent by this time next year, and that’s an economy that could overheat,’ Zandi added in an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.'”

Well look at that! As it turns out, there was a way to bring manufacturing back to America and give more Americans jobs than ever before. You can say it’s because of confidence, or the tax incentives that President Trump is trying to give businesses, and that all might be true. The point here is that liberals will lie to you about the economy every single day of the week.

Maybe that’s because they’re genuinely confused about numbers (that’s been a suspicion for a long time) and maybe it’s because they know that if you understand how good the conservative view is for your pocketbook, you’ll never vote Democrat again. Either way, when you listen to a liberal about anything to do with real actual work, you’re not getting good information.

Crazy as this misinformation seems, it’s just the beginning of the attack on both your intellect as a voter and President Trump as your chosen leader. Just days ago, Obama was speaking in Chicago and actually compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler and Americans to the Germans who turned a blind eye:

“The danger is grow(ing) complacent,” Obama said. “We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly.”

That’s what happened in Germany in the 1930s which, despite the democracy of the Weimar Republic and centuries of high-level cultural and scientific achievements, Adolf Hitler rose to dominate, Obama noted. “Sixty million people died….So, you’ve got to pay attention. And vote.”

Crazy as all of that might seem, they’re not the first to try and push this comparison.  The Independent wrote their own Trump/Hitler comparison piece in November:

“Throughout his presidential campaign, Donald Trump described his opponent, Hillary Clinton, as a criminal and said she should be tried and put in jail (of her guilt, he had no doubt). Commentators at the time noted the extreme nature of such rhetoric and the fact that demands for the investigation and imprisonment of political opponents was alien to the American system. But, they speculated, perhaps it was just that — rhetoric — and with his inauguration as President, he would leave such dangerous talk behind.

It turns out, however, that Trump has proven unable to let go of his obsession with his defeated rival. In early November 2017 — nearly one year after his election victory — he was not only continuing to attack Clinton, but also calling on the FBI and the Justice Department to investigate her. He was “very frustrated” by the fact that he was unable to order those agencies to “go after” his former opponent — something he said he would very much love to do.

It was a horrifying moment as the President of the United States, perhaps more clearly than at any previous time, expressed the thoughts and desires of an autocrat. And with the announcement that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will explore the possibility of creating a new special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton, those thoughts and desires have moved that much closer to being realised.

Such open calls for criminal investigations of political opponents are truly unprecedented in American history — and for good reason, since they would undermine the very foundation of liberal democracy. If the president could order the FBI to investigate Hillary Clinton, where would it stop? Anyone who spoke out to criticise such a brazen act would be vulnerable to the same treatment. And then any individual or any group — regardless of whether they had actually done anything — would be at the mercy of Trump’s politicised justice system. The President would be able to exclude anyone he wished from the national community. The road to dictatorship would be wide open to him. We know this because it was such a system that helped destroy democracy in Germany and helped Hitler establish his Nazi dictatorship.

One of most significant challenges the new Weimar Republic faced was a politicised judicial system — an important element in the weakening of German democracy. One of the key failings of the revolution that toppled the German Empire in 1918 was the failure of the revolutionaries to establish a truly republican judiciary by allowing the judges from the old imperial system to remain on the bench. These were men who’d been trained and established their careers under the old authoritarian system. They had no sympathy for the new liberal, democratic regime. And the verdicts they rendered made this exceedingly clear. Political crimes committed by individuals on the left consistently received longer prison sentences than those committed by people on the right.”

Liberals will do absolutely anything to make you dependent on them and therefore vote for them. The more jobs they ruin, the more people will be forced to be on welfare, and if you’re on welfare, you won’t vote for someone who wants to downsize welfare. It’s sad to think that any homegrown American would try to cut the legs out of the American economy that way, but it’s hard to see this as anything else but a pointed attack on the American economy. Ignoring it won’t make the monster of fear and ignorance go away, you’ll just lose track of how close it’s getting.

HOLY CRAP! Obama Just Went On The World Stage And Stabbed Trump In The Back

He’s still trying to destroy America!

Published

on

While former President Obama might have been one smooth talker, anyone who compares his words to his actions can tell he’s just that; all talk. Whether you agree with what he did in office or you think he’s the worst thing that ever happened to this country, it would be nice for the rest of the world to see that we had the good sense to elect a President that doesn’t say one thing and then do another. But alas, that’s not the case with our former Commander-in-Chief.

It seems that Barrack Hussein Obama might be taking retirement hard, since he can’t seem to quit trailing around behind President Trump, looking for ways to sabotage what the President is doing. Even though Obama had eight long years to do his damage, he’s still working overtime to try and sink the knife of liberalism into the just recovering country.

Most recently he actually followed the President on his tour of Asia, stopping where the President stopped and seeming to apologize for everything that President Trump did while he was on his diplomatic missions. According to Down Trend, during the former President’s speech in India, he went so far as to actually attack President Trump on everything from his social media following, to Obama’s beloved Paris Agreement that POTUS did away with post haste:

“Obama’s legacy as president was almost entirely based on the sometimes illegal executive orders he issued. He had to know that Donald Trump was going to come in and erase the sad level of achievement and that’s precisely what has happened. It has to be disappointing for Obama to realize the only thing he will be remembered for is the color of his skin and that bitterness is showing. At a speech in India he repeatedly shit-talked his replacement, showing what his wife meant when she said, ‘When they go low, we go high.’

The AP reports that Obama spoke at a ‘leadership’ forum in New Delhi on Friday. I guess that’s kind of like when Hillary Clinton gave a speech on cybersecurity; it’s just as important to hear from failures as successes. As you know, Obama is terrified to utter the word ‘Trump’ because he thinks it will unleash untold evil and the AP actually made note of this:

‘When former President Barack Obama spoke to a leadership forum in India’s capital on Friday, he never once used the words “Donald Trump” and was careful to avoid any direct reference to his successor in the White House.’

Actually, that’s not true, Obama directly referenced Trump many times. Here he’s trying to rub it in that he has more Twitter followers than Trump:

‘And look, I’ve got 100 million Twitter followers. I actually have more than other people who use it more often,’ said Obama, followed by, ‘Think before you tweet.'”

For the record, even AP was willing to correct the fact that Obama doesn’t actually have 100 million followers, he’s got 97 million followers, but one can understand why he might be mentally rounding up. What isn’t forgivable is why he would personally attack the President for something like pulling out of the Paris Agreement, but that’s just what he did, calling Trump a “climate denier.”

“‘It’s an agreement, even though we have a little bit of a pause in American leadership, that is giving our children a fighting chance,’ Obama said.

A pause in American leadership? Does he mean the 8 years he was in office? That’s not a pause; that’s a full-on drought. 

Obama actually continued to attack Trump’s leadership:

‘And so if you see a politician doing things that are questionable, one of the things as a citizen is to ask yourself ‘Am I encouraging, or supporting or giving license to the values I’m hearing out of the politician?’ Because frankly, politicians tend to be more of a mirror and more of a reflection of forces in the society,’ said Obama.

If I’m understanding this correctly, while Obama was president, America was lazy and inept? Another way to look at that is that Obama is saying now that Trump is president, America sucks.”

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and apparently, Obama’s is that President Trump is doing a bad job. Sadly, he’s not even the only one who thinks that, and that’s OK. What isn’t OK is the former President actually following the current President around and trash talking him behind his back.

President Trump has a lot to do while he’s in office if he plans to repair the damage done by the Obama Administration and make good on his promise to make America great again. If he’s going to do that, he needs to be able to keep his eyes forward without someone who might still hold clout in the eyes of world leaders going behind him and undoing his progress and stabbing him in the back. This flailing attempt by Obama to make President Trump look bad is pathetic at best and treasonous at worst. It’s time to put a stop to it.
