Wind Farms in the Sandhills? Oh, No You Don’t!!

By Craig Andresen / Right Side Patriots

As you Patriot readers of The National Patriot well know, I deal with the political landscape of national and international news but today, I’d like to take a departure from those issues of the day to let you all know about an issue that is not getting any national or international coverage.

ls 1I have always said that if you want to have an effect on national politics, the place to start is in your own corner of the world so in that light, I want to let you all in on what this Patriot has been up to on a local level.

In order to do that, I must first remove the “political” from the landscape and provide you with a bit of background on our actual landscape here in north central Nebraska.

To be specific…we live in the Nebraska Sandhills.

And what exactly are the Nebraska Sandhills, for those who have never heard of them before? 

Well…I’m glad you asked…

Obamacare Sticker Shock Zeroing In On Nebraska Guy has covered the dismal Obamacare news. Right now, the entire law is on the verge of total and complete collapse. Premiums are set to spike by double-digits again, even for the low-cost plans, and more Americans are opting to pay the penalty rather than enroll due to the costs. The law that was meant to make health care cheaper and more accessible has people waiting on the sidelines because it’s more economical for them. In Tennessee, the insurance commissioner warned that the president’s signature domestic achievement is about to breakdown. In Nebraska, the state also braces for sticker shock on its insurance rates (via Omaha World-Herald):
A sampling of individual health insurance rates for Nebraskans next year shows increases that will average about 35 percent on the Affordable Care Act marketplace, with some increases near 50 percent. 
But federal officials have said the law’s tax subsidies will offset such increases for three out of every four people buying the policies, allowing them to purchase coverage for $75 or less per month.
Figures issued Friday by the Nebraska Department of Insurance showed increases ranging from 12 percent to nearly 50 percent for a sampling of policies that would take effect Jan. 1.
House Oversight Committee: Did Hillary Clinton or Staff Destroy Email Evidence Under Subpoena? Last week's 58-page, bombshell FBI report partially detailing the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of multiple private email servers while Secretary of State, didn't make the scandal go away but instead has prompted more questions for the Democrat presidential nominee.

“In reviewing those files, the Committee identified a sequence of events that may amount to obstruction of justice and destruction of evidence by Secretary Clinton and her employees and contractors, including her attorneys, employees of Platte River Networks, and employees of Clinton Executive Services Corporation," a letter sent Tuesday to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia by House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz states.

“In light of this information, the Department should investigate and determine whether Secretary Clinton or her employees and contractors violated statutes that prohibit destruction of records, obstruction of congressional inquiries, and concealment or cover up of evidence material to a congressional investigation.”

Essentially, Chaffetz is asking if evidence was deleted under subpoena.

Clinton Staged Benghazi Hearings, “We wired it”: Heartless, Calculating Emails Ahead of 2013 Benghazi Hearing

In an email to Hillary’s daughter Chelsea (pseudonym Diane Wells):

“Very strong opening. She got very emotional when talking about the families. We wired it that Menendez would provide an opportunity to address two topics we needed to debunk (her actions/whereabouts on 9/22 and these emails[s] from Chris Stevens about moving locations)….. She’s on her game.”
