The royal bank of scotland is the owner of citizens bank, it is not an independent rhode island based financial institution, and this new construction is simply a waste of money deposited and invested in citizens bank and a publicity stunt for crooked politicians
I have experienced firsthand the shadiness of that bank, be it dave nolan's crank calling the providence pigs on me even after the US Secret Service orded them to stand down, and his changing the criteria for having accounts after that incident. I have had their employees stalk me, one even sexually propositioning me, so I know firsthand how corrupt they are.
This crooked behavior which is typical for rhode island is one reason why citizens bank, and rbs, continue to lose money and why many financial institutions are preparing to acquire citizens/rbs.
While knowledge of anthony weiner's infidelities has been common knoweledge the real question is why now has she decided to separate from him
It is also odd that the media is reporting on this heavily, yet huma has said nothing about this on her twitter page, while anthony deleted his twitter account and said nothing on his public facebook page
Something is clearly afoot here, as they over focus on anthony weiner's actions, yet they ignore that huma behaves the same way online. I have saved e-mails she had sent me, and I know other men and women similar messages, and this recent action gives substance to rumors her and hillary clinton may be lesbian lovers.
This censorship by israel's ministry of culture and sport is overkill kashrut prudishness to be expected from isis/daesh. Hanna Goor was performing on the beach at Ashdod, her concert advanced well in advance, so critics had ample time to know not to attend.
Additionally, miri reeve and the ministry of culture and sport has not made any comment on this whatsoever, demonstrating that they know they are in the wrong and have become the opposite of why israel was created.
Even though her charge may be negligible, the fact that Amanda Sharp was able to escape shows how lax australian prison security has become. Additionally her Facebook posts are hilarious and not menacing, and certainly not psychotic
So far facebook has not killswitched Amanda Sharp for this the way they have to margin furious and others who made similar posts, nor should they.
While doing site maintenance I noticed that linda pollaro had liked, i.e. shared publicly, the slanderous post made by peter clarke aka purple crow about me in July
Not only did I not try to kill anyone with firearms I have never been in and out of mental institutions. Additionally, linda pollaro had been caught impersonating a Texas MHMR employee and has sent money to purple crow and his sex offender associates. Disgraceful that people like this are given any credibility.
Contrary to what saeed ganji states here, reza pahlavi and his associates, including his national union for democracy in Iran associates, have been out of touch with goings on in Iran for decades, and have spent their efforts spewing platitudes rather than steeling themselves for the necessary actions to remove jomhori mullah while preventing any invasion of Iran
The majority of nufdi membership are the fuzel bacheha who comprise the majority of Iran's young and stupid population who are just as stupid as those who fell for cia/mi6/mossad lies that removing Mohammed Reza Shah would usher in liberal democracy which created the problems Iran has had since 1979, and who will be responsible for any problems Iran will experience should they succeed.
It was recently brought to my attention that rajavi's pmo/mek/ncrI had been inciting Azeri groups to riot inside Iran, mostly northern Iran
The timing of this coincided with the troll attack I experienced which reslted in the killswitch of my original public facebook page which revolved around my supposedly misreporting the killing of an Armenian girl in March 2015. Seeing how the Azeris were involved with rajavi, I would not be surprised if there was a connection, particularly considering the nature of the Armenian-Azeri conflicts.
Contrary to what the press is stating the state of rhode island has only issued a sex offender notification for anthony stravato, not for his killing cats
Another sign the press is not fully trustworthy is how they downplay the fact his dad is an ex cop, and even facebook tries to censor this
One needs to question where anthony stravato was influenced to kill these cats.
On this day 63 years ago Fazlollah zahedi removed that suskimargi mossadeq, who had collaborated with tudeh to seize control of Iran. The only role America played was by having government members inside Iran, notably cia, to assist Iran should Russia invade Iran.
While Mohammed Reza Shah prevented Iran from becoming a stalinist nightmare, he misunderestimated the threat of fundamentalist mullahs like khomeinei, who mossadeq had associated with.
Had Mohammed Reza Shah been as aggressive against Khomeini as he was against mossadeq Iran would not have the problems it does today.
As usual the slobs at golocalprov get the facts on esserman's decline wrong. They forget that his decline began not in providence, but in stamford.
Even though he was a halfway decent cop when with the Metro-North and New Haven departments, once in charge at stamford he headed an organization notorious for ninny state policing, basically arresting people for sneezing, farting, telling someone to fuck off, being in the wrong place because they were sick, usw. Additionally, it was common practice from members of the stamford pd to take items from seized property, and evidence and give them to people in lieu of cash payment, as some members did to my stepfamily when they rented out part of their townhouse in Greenwich.
Once in providence at mayor sissyweenie's invitation, he upheld new practices which included not allowing clergy to visit prisoners, which along with at wall's practices led to criminalization of people while in custody because of their religion. Along with allowing ppd members to run amok and detain and arrest them for trivial matters, as he had done in stamford, led to hostility against the police.
When esserman returned to New Haven he had been chewed up and shit out by providence, and people in New Haven did not research thoroughly his actions in providence before rehiring him.
The real reason which paolino, the city of providence, and the state of rhode island, the media, and these so-called social activists are afrad to face for the problems in downtown providence around kennedy plaza and burnside park is themselves.
Decades of city and state subsidization of 501c3whore agencies and employees who kept people poor to justify their social service jobs helped create the mass of poor people in providence, which is the same as boston and new haven combined, yet these people blame others in order to receive more money and justify their existence.
During the free submarine film showings in Groton I noticed some muslims who would always hang around but never participate in the free film events as you can see here
Even though facebook censored my calling them out on this twitter has not, and when I attended the most recent film showing of Up Periscope, not only were there no cair members around, one of them got me coffee on the way to see the Skipper kick some Japanese ass before Gilligan could do anything about it.
This recently freed hajibaba mehdi khosravi is related to elitist provacetur hajibaba jendafarangis rashin khosravi who has collaborated with niac in using the Iran nuclear deal to open up Iran for infiltration prior to an invasion as Iraq and Libya were invaded, and for reza pahlavi to meddle with the italian government in obtaining this fool's release is either stupid or complicit
Even though italia has been copying off Iran since the days of Scipio, this time they have made the wrong choice, some people need to be locked up and this includes the khosravi's and their associates.
Even though Russia has moved the Supercarrier Admiral Kuznetsov 63 close to Syria, and Iran is in discussions to join the Collective Security Treaty Organization either as an observer or full member, the use of the Hamadan Air base is a curious one to attack isis/daesh in Syria.
Recently Russia began deploying modern fighters to attack isis/daesh
This comes hours after Russian bombers attacked sis/daesh to protect Aleppo
Russia could have used the Tabriz base but with current dealings with Armenia, which currently chairs the EurAsian Union, and with Turkey and Azerbaijan, such a move might incite violence, however no such use is being made of Iran's Dezful Air base. Expect greater defensive ties with Russia, Iran, and their allies and more positive action against isis/daesh to come from this.
Even though Fincantieri does not make obtaining this information easy, I nevertheless managed to find this on their website
This is what the planned ITS Trieste and it's two sisters will look like when completed, and which may be offered to India and other countries, further escalating arms races and conflicts around the World.FincantieriFincantieriFincantieri
Earlier today I spotted this item on Route 1 in Groton
This was placed two miles near the gdeb shipyard and nowhere near gdeb property, so something odd is up by the military/industrial complex in Groton.
Interesting how Amtrak's Arrive magazine has decided to do a piece on Montauk, even though it is not on any rail line, and more interesting how it mentions Camp Hero. As today is the anniversary of the Mountauk incident in 1943 and 1983 and the "Fuck the World" ceremony Aleister Crowley did in 1943 I am sharing their story here.
What’s better than Montauk in the summer? Montauk in the fall, when the weather is still warm, the crowds thin out and the sleepy fishing village regains its easy, beachy charm

NO TRAFFIC LIGHT NEEDEDlocal surfers have the beach to themselves.
One glance up and down the seemingly endless, people-free stretch of beach along Old Montauk Highway, and I was sure this wasn’t Montauk. It couldn’t possibly be. Where were the masses of humanity?
From what I had read, the East End summer had recently morphed from fishing village charm to a powder keg of chaos and pandemonium, lit up by hard-partying urbanites on a vacation bender. I had imagined the beach along Old Montauk Highway to be the nautical version of the subway rush hour, throngs of people fighting for tiny patches of precious, sandy real estate. And when space ran out? Another beachcomber would do the equivalent of throwing himself into a packed train car and unfurl his towel anyway, personal space be damned!
So my plan was to head out to Montauk after Labor Day 2015 to see if I could experience the area in a simpler, slower way, without having to fight crowds at every turn.
Every Day Is "Tumbleweed Tuesday"Locals call the Tuesday after Labor Day "Tumbleweed Tuesday," since that’s when life in their sleepy town returns to normal. Ask around, and they’ll say fall is arguably the best time to visit Montauk, anyway. The weather remains pleasant, the crowds thin out and the prices fall. One can walk into a restaurant at 7 p.m. without a reservation, hike over quiet nature trails, and enjoy the farmers market bounty of pumpkins and apples during harvest season. And, if it becomes "sweatshirt weather," as my grandma always called a chilly day, a number of world-class art museums are an easy drive away.
"People don’t get it," Montauk native Maureen Keller says of what visitors imagine locals do during the fall. "They’re like, ‘You don’t have a mall?’ We don’t even have a traffic light."
OCEANFRONT PROPERTYBlack Cod, caramelized fennel and concentrated tomatoes at Scarpetta Beach

Keller is the concierge at Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa, the oceanfront hotel built right into the hillside below Old Montauk Highway. A $5 million renovation has turned the historic property into a pyramid of suites with terraces overlooking the water. The year-round resort has a saltwater pool, provides free shuttles into town, and houses the stellar Italian restaurant Scarpetta Beach with a large deck overlooking the surf.
If one’s sole motivation for visiting Montauk is to collapse onto a beach chair and not move for 48 hours, save for mai tais, massages and shuteye, Gurney’s is an ideal temporary home.
On my first morning in town, Keller took me on a drive around Montauk.
"Over 60 percent of the land in Montauk is protected," she notes. We toured the Montauk Point Lighthouse, perched atop the steep dunes on Long Island’s eastern tip; Camp Hero State Park, a one-time army base that was disguised as a fishing outpost; and Rocky Point, an under-the-radar walk that winds around Napeague Bay’s coast. In nearby Hither Hills State Park, there are 168 oceanfront campsites that cost $35 a night for New York residents, one of the best deals in the state.
September Is the Coolest MonthAs we skirted Lake Montauk, Keller talked about what it was like to grow up here. "We didn’t have a key to our house," she says. "We never locked the door." Once, her sister worked as a server for a party at Andy Warhol’s former estate, Eothen, that feted the Rolling Stones. Keller’s sister, then in high school, didn’t have a car, so she caught a ride home from Mick Jagger. The Rolling Stones would become Montauk regulars and eventually write the song "Memory Motel," named for a still-standing area motel.
While visitors are unlikely to bump into Jagger and company in Montauk today, the town has much more to offer than celebrity sightings. For example, there are the lobster sandwiches.
For lunch, Keller dropped me off at the Montauk Yacht Club on Star Island. The sprawling 32-acre property fronts Lake Montauk and is home to docks that house up to 250 boats. Today, though, I essentially had the restaurant patio to myself and could enjoy my lobster roll, stuffed with so much meat that it required two hands, as I looked out at the glassy lake feeling like this was my own private estate. I dined with bar director Wayne Connolly, who moved to Montauk five years ago and, when asked his favorite month, quickly picked September.
"The fishing is better," he says. "You see stripers flapping out on the water, and you are quickly reeling them in."
Fishermen aren’t the only outdoors enthusiasts who can delight in the fall season. It’s also prime time for surfers, who can ride out the remnants of the hurricane season storms, and birdwatchers, who can look off the point and view the winter migration of birds taking the skyway from Canada to the Caribbean.

Even though the baked sand feels just as good in September as in the peak summer months, and the air and ocean temperatures fall by only a few degrees, not everyone is a beach person. For those who aren’t, there are side trips. One afternoon, I took a short drive to the LongHouse Reserve, an outdoor sculpture garden set on the grounds of textile designer Jack Lenor Larsen’s East Hampton home, tucked back on a winding, woodsy road. The LongHouse Reserve is an ideal stop for those parties that contain both art experts and novices, because the tour weaves through 16 acres of manicured gardens and hedges dotted with metal artistry. Tour highlights include Dale Chihuly’s cobalt glass reeds rising out of a pond, a white concrete chess set with human-sized pieces created by Yoko Ono, and the piece "Eye of the Ring" by Takashi Soga that appears as if the ring atop a beam is floating in the air. As we walked, curator Wendy Van Deusen pointed out how the sun’s light and grassy backdrops are constantly changing throughout the day and the seasons, casting different perspectives on the sculptures.
"In another hour, the pieces will look different," she says.
At the exit is a 7-foot-tall "Gateway Bell" by Toshiko Takaezu with a wooden mallet resting at its base. "Give it a hit," encouraged Van Deusen. Bang! The move went against everything I had been taught about not touching the art, but it turned out to be a wonderful exercise in stress relief. In fact, I did it again.
Keeping the Un-Hamptons RealThe Hamptons and "dive bar" are two terms rarely associated with each other, but Montauk has a stable of colorful, low-key joints not named Sloppy Tuna. Most notable is The Dock, where you’re just as apt to be told what you can’t have as what you can. The list of prohibited items includes credit cards, cellphones, strollers, screaming kids, requests, dirt bags, whining, wimps and chickenhawks.
"That list has grown over the years, the things that annoy me," admits proprietor George Watson. What happens if someone breaks a rule? "I have a bullhorn," says Watson, who speaks with a certain sense of pride when noting that he had just caught a cellphone offender. "I stood at her table and kept screaming," he says. "And the rest of the patrons cheered me on."
"People don’t get it," Montauk native Maureen Keller says of what visitors imagine locals do during the fall. "They’re like, ‘You don’t have a mall?’ We don’t even have a traffic light."
BREATHING THE SALTY AIR An ocean view at Camp Hero State Park; enjoying a bonfire on the beach.
Watson started visiting Montauk to go camping in Hither Hills in the 1950s, and his father built a house here in ’57. Watson left the New York City fire department when the opportunity arose to buy the bar in Montauk Harbor. As Watson tells it, he met with the previous owner at 8 a.m., and their meeting involved blackberry brandy and ended with a handshake deal.
"I had the bar by that night," he says. The cinder block building décor can best be described as "stuffed animal head chic," and the four rotating draft beers are always fresh and ice cold. For all the things that irk him, though, Watson is rather welcoming of a new breed of Montauk bar patron. "A lot of people complain about the hipsters," says Watson. "As far as I am concerned, the hipsters are a lot better than the shark fishermen."
The hard-partying hipsters have, in recent years, been at the root of tension between the local community, second-home owners and the summer visitors. Montauk has always considered itself the "un-Hamptons," but now the nightlife and parties have turned its summer into a threemonth bacchanal.
And yet, it’s an inevitable growing pain for a village that dates to the 1700s and is close to numerous metropolises. A seaside community will always attract people who want to breathe in the salty air and blow off workweek steam in the summer.
"In the 1970s, we partied as hard as the kids do now, except we were high school kids then, and now they’re stockbrokers," says longtime Montauk Life publisher Kirby Marcantonio, who has lived in the area since the 1960s.
However, partiers get older too. Along the way to realizing they’ve outgrown skinny jeans, Marcantonio says, they might begin to think, "Maybe I want Montauk to be calmer and cooler than when I first saw it." Then they slow down and begin to appreciate the surroundings for their historical significance.
Until that happens, head to Montauk in the fall. The only thing you’ll miss from peak season are the crowds.
I would not be surprised if those who planned this act of terror in Crimea had american/nato backing, especially considering the timing and location of this
Recall the trouble america and nato made for Russia in Crimea during the 2014 Olympics, and notice the timing of this during the 2016 Olympics, in all probability retaliation for Russia's actions in defense of Abkhazia and the Ossetia region during the 2008 Olympics.
Recently facebook decided to use their killswitch on my page on Wednesday, mainly as a result of false reports that the courts in rhode island were going to either incarcerate or kill me, however those complaints have turned out to be false and mark suckerberg and his associates have treated me the same way they treated marjan faritous, omar mateen, korryn gaines, dylan roof, julie simone, and others who fb has censored under pressure from elitist pigs who abuse their power
I should remind suckerberg and his associates that even though his 1456 edgewood drive place in palo alto is on the opposite coast, though I have a few associates in the area, the place he and the zuckerberg family use at 2 russell place in dobbs ferry is minutes away from the Cemetery I am part owner of in White Plains.
I and millions of others would be thrilled to see someone pull a killswitch on suckerberg, just so I can have the satisfaction of sitting on the grave of that elitist sissyboy who is fucking over people on the internet.
I should note the very last post on my public facebook before it was censored involved louisa chafee on the american olympic team competing in Rio.
Notice how this elitist twat never placed more that thirty-first in any of her competitions, attended brown university for five years and obtained less than a PhD, and in all probability got the position because her father lincoln and grandfather john were former rhode island governors and senators. Far from champion material.
Also odd to notice her birthday is days after mine, interesting how chafee birthdays always coincide with people close to me.
