In 2012 ,the USA,TURKEY and Jordan were running Cial and Special Forces training camps in Safawi , Jordan for Syrian Rebels.
Were they funded by monies our Attorney General was receiving from fines on the large banks as Bank Of America plus the American tax payer?
It would not be the first time this man is caught with his hand in the money jar. Remember Fast and Furious? Our Administration went around congress and hid that operation, why not train and arm a secret army in Jordan.
This army was trained to fight against Assad in Syria. We are still funding them today as our President asked for $500 million in aid for them in June as Syrian Rebels.
They were calling themselves Isis.
This is why they are some many foreigners in this army from many countries. They were the trainers hired by the Cia a few years ago. Now they are in charge of their own army, funded and trained and given weapons by the good old USA.
Our tax dollars are paying their salaries and this why the President has no plan to stop them. I know this sounds far fetched but it is very closed to the truth. They say they are coming to the USA and they are already here because of the trainers that are America hired by the Cia as mercenaries.
There were a large number of ads in veracious magazines about three years ago hiring ex -military people to train overseas. They offered large salaries if you went. The number of people unemployed in America made it easy to get people to go.
Our President made it so easy for this to happen by by creating the loss of jobs in America and down sizing the military. He forced most of the good personnel out of the upper ranks of our own military.
Most of the above facts are contained in military magazines that I receive being retired.

Letter To The Editor
as published in Centre Daily Times
U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson’s voting record as reported by “Roll Call” is either inhumane with no concern for the health or safety of constituents or unhuman, as his votes seem cast in as an automaton controlled by the national political machine — or both (“Roll Call,” Sept. 15, CDT).
My interpretation of Thomson’s voting record is that he favors mercury poisoning, air pollution, unsafe work environments, endless war, depriving service men and women of food stamps, depriving millions of health care, removing our mountain tops and clogging our streams in the process, prevention of a living wage, abusive derivatives trading, putting bond holders before military personnel, denial of overtime pay, jeopardizing pensions of teachers and first responders, shipping domestic oil overseas, keeping teaser lending rates, keeping Guantanamo open, prolonging the Veteran’s Administration benefits backlog, cutting health care for women and children, sharing private information with businesses, impediments to voting, BP polluting the gulf, ground water contamination, preying on seniors, exposing your passwords to employers and gender discrimination as in paying women less for equal work.
This is my assessment of individual votes. Need I tell you of my overall assessment of Thompson’s long and consistent voting record?

Bipartisan Solutions on Job Creation
August Jobs Report a Stark Reminder
by Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5)
Earlier this month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released its August jobs report that indicated only 142,000 jobs were added to the U.S. economy, marking the lowest amount of job growth in 2014. Perhaps worse, only 62.8 percent of the working aged population is currently employed. During the week of September 12th, 315,000 Americans applied for unemployment aid, an increase of 11,000 claims from the previous week and more than all summer. As the economy continues to creep along with marginal growth, more people continue to feel that the country is heading in the wrong direction.
A recent POLITICO poll indicated that 57 percent of likely voters disapprove of President Obama’s handling of the economy. Unfortunately, we are caught in the president’s second term slump, where international crisis has risen to the forefront, while Americans continue to struggle at home. While President Obama cannot bear the brunt of a downed economy alone, he is not helping the situation. Despite the many challenges we face throughout the world, the American people deserve leadership both abroad and domestically.
While congressional inaction dominates the news coverage, there have been real bipartisan solutions passed out of the House of Representatives, in the form of over 40 bills that will increase American competitiveness and facilitate an environment for job creation. Yet, almost every single one of these bills sets idle, awaiting Senate action even though most have received Democrat support in the House.
Despite Senate inaction, the House has continued to produce legislation to create an environment where small businesses can expand and the economy can grow at a faster pace. The chamber has passed legislation that will streamline inefficient and cumbersome regulations in order spur capital investment that will help start-up companies and small businesses. We’ve also passed legislation to expand job opportunities, including bills to promote research and development, along with reforms to make energy more affordable for American families and businesses.
Notwithstanding failed attempts at repeal, we have also passed bills to improve the Affordable Care Act, including a replacement of the law’s 2.3% medical device tax, which is especially harmful to Pennsylvania’s economy. This measure received overwhelming bipartisan support in both the House and Senate, including backing from Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey. Yet, Leader Reid has failed to bring the measure to a final vote in the Senate. If passed, this will mark at least 17 times that the president will sign legislation correcting flaws with the Affordable Care Act.
Despite these modest steps, the Senate needs to act on the bipartisan legislative measures passed by the House. If the Senate’s prerogatives differ from the House, Majority Leader Harry Reid should at least put forth legislative proposals based upon his party’s vision and bring them to a vote. While both chambers of Congress must pass an identical bill in order for it to become law, the process of going to conference and hashing out our differences still exists. We’ve witnessed this with the 2014 Farm Bill, signed into law this past February, which is a huge win for Pennsylvania’s economy. Additionally, the president recently signed the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act, which will aid in putting Americans back to work through reforms made to our nation’s workforce development system. Both of these examples were heavy lifts, but no one ever said representative democracy was easy.
Given the August jobs report and tremendous pressures on American families at home and our national interests overseas, there is obviously need for much more to be done. However, in our constitutional republic everyone must be at the table for the system to work. The American people deserve as much.

Pennsylvania Commits to Action Plan to Improve State Waters and Chesapeake Bay
The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today announced its commitment work with bay partners and interested stakeholders to develop to an action plan to reach the goals outlined in the recently signed Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement.
The agreement was signed by Governor Tom Corbett, along with the governors of Delaware, Maryland, New York, Virginia, West Virginia, the mayor of the District of Columbia, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency and the chairman of the Chesapeake Bay Commission on June 16.
“Signing the agreement was the first step toward reinforcing Pennsylvania’s commitment to improving state waterways and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay,” DEP Secretary E. Christopher Abruzzo said. “This new action plan will be our road map to continue to protect water quality for all Pennsylvanians.”
The action plan will consist of “management strategies” that address sustainable fisheries, vital habitats, water quality, toxic contaminants, healthy watersheds, stewardship, land conservation, public access, environmental literacy and resiliency of the bay ecosystem.
Over the next nine months, DEP, as well as other state and federal partners, will craft these management strategies to meet the goals of the recently-signed Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement.
“We have and will continue to be actively engaged with our watershed partners in Pennsylvania to identify needs and find opportunities to successfully implement this plan,” DEP Deputy Secretary for Water Management Kelly Heffner said. “These partnerships are a critical component to implementing the management strategies and meeting the goals set forth in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement.”
Since 1985, Pennsylvania has directed more than $4 billion by way of grants, loans and program investments toward Chesapeake Bay restoration efforts and has continued to see a downward trend for all three pollutants of concern: phosphorous, nitrogen and sediment.
Citizens can find out about what is being done, what needs to be done and offer their input on these plans by visiting the Chesapeake Bay Programs website, www.chesapeakebay.net.
