Former House speaker Lujan dies
(UPDATED with statement
from Bill Richardson)

Associated Press, by Staff*

Original Article

Posted By:cjjeepercreeper, 12/19/2012 11:42:18 AM

Ben Lujan, the speaker of New Mexico´s House of Representative and the father of U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, has died. A spokesman for the congressman, Andrew Stoddard, confirmed in a statement early Wednesday that the elder Lujan had succumbed to lung cancer late Tuesday night. The Santa Fe Democrat spent nearly 40 years in the chamber before he announced on the first day of the session this year that he would not seek re-election.

Comments:
* with KOB staff (NM)

This corrupt demorat ran our House for way too many years. He was as corrupt as they come, a charter member of NM´s "good old boy" Congress, and the father of our Rep. in the national house, Ben Ray, a lapdog of Nancy Pelosi. I usually am not this callous, but I don´t miss this man nor would I miss his son. NM State politics are much better off without him.

I don´t have much respect from anyone who goes into politics and spends more than 2 terms in office.

After that, they become part of the problem!

I say we place these lifers on a sliding scale. You get full pay/benefits your first term. That decreased by 30 percent your second term. Your third term you lose 50 percent of your current pay/benefits and so on. Eventually, you are working for free.
When they whine, we remind them that they got into this game to "help people" and "make a difference". Now they can do it on their dime.
Who´s with me on this?

Anything past two terms in a single position is treason....so the headline should read "NM multi-decade Traitor dies"

This article was updated with a message from the current NM Gov Susana Martinez not the last slime ball loser.

There is a special place in hell for Mr Lujan (and Greasy Bill Richardson´s place of agony will be right next door)! Both have done their utmost to destroy this state. Both have raised political corruption to ultimate new highs! Now the destruction will continue be carried out by their prodigy voted in by the mindless D- students ushered in by their destruction of the eduction system in this state.

Am I bitter? You bet your arse I am!

Family members tell KOB that U.S. Marshals have located Lacey DeWent, the Albuquerque 14-year-old reported missing more than two weeks ago, in Arkansas. According to DeWent´s father, Marshals located DeWent with 26-year-old Robert Butler in Fort Smith, Ark. The family is on their way to the airport to be reunited with their daughter. Her mother, Jessica DeWent, says Lacey is doing OK and was not harmed. Daniel DeWent also said authorities took Butler into custody. DeWent and Butler met online and tried to form a relationship, but he was arrested for being in contact with her.

After April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer support the Windows XP operating system. There will be no more security fixes, software updates or technical support, although Microsoft will still provide some anti-malware support for an unspecified amount of time. Computers that continue to run Windows XP will be at increased risk for malware infection after April 8, yet many businesses have critical XP-only applications. Others can´t afford to upgrade to new PCs. How much of a risk are they running?

The surge in the popularity of inexpensive but cutting-edge smartphones is more than just another marketplace success story. It is one with profound social implications, particularly among low-income Black and Hispanic consumers who have long been on the losing end of the digital divide. If there has been any recent development that has helped to bridge that divide in communities like my own here in Harlem, it has been the advent of low-priced smartphones. Indeed, studies have shown that Black and Hispanics access the Internet on a cellphone, tablets or other mobile handheld devices at demonstrably higher rates than whites.

A federal appeals court on Thursday upheld Texas´ tough abortion restrictions that have led to the closure of nearly 20 clinics around the state, saying the new rules don´t jeopardize women´s health. A panel of judges at the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court judge who said the rules violate the U.S. Constitution and served no medical purpose. Despite the lower court´s ruling, the appeals court already had allowed some rules to go into effect while it considered the case. The latest decision means more regulations will begin later this year, as scheduled, and sets

Farmington police order ammunition

The Farmington Police Department now orders its ammunition about a year in advance after retail stocks nationally began running low due to greater demand. Trade officials say the shortages largely began in 2013 when gun owners began stockpiling bullets...(snip)The source of the fear that drove ammunition hoarding is President Barack Obama, said Erich Pratt, director of communications for Gun Owners of America, a firearms advocacy lobbying group. "You could give him the gun-salesman of the year award," he said.

They’re probably going to end up with NOTHING in the final analysis, as breaking news from San Francisco reveals that the source of the mystery gold has been discovered: A story that describes a gold heist from the San Francisco Mint at the turn of the century could explain the source of the gold coins worth $10 million that were found last month in California’s Mother Lode country.

On the eve of the Netanyahu visit to Washington, President Obama gave a lengthy interview to Jeffrey Goldberg that shows a chief executive who has learned next to nothing about the world in his five years in office. First, kudos to Goldberg: he pressed Obama repeatedly, challenging vague formulations and seeking clarity. Goldberg pushed Obama hard, especially on Iran and Syria. Obama isn’t good off the cuff, especially when challenged; he is far better with a prepared speech. And what emerged is an awful portrait of the president and his conception of the world.

FARMINGTON — Local and federal law enforcement officials charged 29 people Wednesday on suspicion of trafficking methamphetamine in San Juan County. The charges came after a year-long investigation into a meth dealing ring in northwestern New Mexico that investigators called "Brown ICE," law enforcement officials said at a press conference in Farmington on Wednesday evening. The meth dealing network was allegedly headed by Isaac Anaya, a 30-year-old Farmington man, said San Juan County Sheriff´s Office Lt. Neil Haws, the director of the Region II Narcotics Task Force.

LOS ANGELES – Paramount Studios has poured an estimated $125 million into the production of “Noah,” casting big names like Emma Watson and Russell Crowe, and trusting their baby to Oscar-nominated director Darren Aronofsky. But six weeks ahead of its theatrical release, concern is brewing that the flick may not be popular with Christians at the box office. Faith Driven Consumer – a movement connecting Christian consumers with companies compatible with a biblical worldview – issued the results of an online survey, first published in Variety, that indicated a whopping 98 percent of faith-driven consumers are “unsatisfied with (the) Bible-themed

Shiprock — When Myk Redhouse spoke to the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission, he shared a story about the night his transgender friend was attacked in Waterflow while traveling home from Farmington. "They basically beat her up ... and left her to die in the median of the road," Redhouse told the commission. The commission on Wednesday met at the Shiprock Chapter House to hear accounts of violence perpetrated against Navajo women and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer tribal members. Redhouse, who is gay, said being homosexual on the reservation is not easy, especially when there is no support

FARMINGTON — A federal agency is attempting to deport an undocumented immigrant who was acquitted of criminal sexual penetration against a 3-year-old Aztec girl. David Kantun-Vera, 31, was arrested in February 2012 on suspicion of criminal sexual penetration against the child, who Kantun-Vera was babysitting at her father´s home on Light Plant Road in Aztec. In January, Kantun-Vera was found not guilty of lesser charges after a jury trial. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested Kantun-Vera while he was still at the San Juan County Adult Detention Center after his trial.

The global warming hysteria is disastrous enough in its intended goal, which is to ban the use of our cheapest and most abundant fuels and force us to limp along on "alternative energy" sources that are insufficient to support an industrial civilization. But along the way, the global warming campaign is already wrecking our science and politics by seeking to establish a dogma that cannot legally be questioned. The critical point in this campaign is a defamation lawsuit by global warming promoter Michael Mann against Mark Steyn, National Review, and the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
