Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These Accord APSWDF Adjustable Magnetic Air Deflectors work really good. Bought two of them to deflect the moving air away from our bed at night as this causes my wife to sneeze. They did just that! The air cond is on now, haven't tried them with the warm air (heater on) yet, so hoping they don't melt.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Clinton Cash Review you all should read!, May 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
UPDATE: For some reason this review was taken down after I posted it on 5/16/2015 -- so I am posting it again for all you to read!!!

Okay, I know I’m going to offend any Clinton fans here with this review – but you want truth and honestly don’t you? Well, here it is. First before I say anymore…here is my DISCLAIMER; I am a Libertarian slightly right of center. I will call out any Republican or Democrat (the 2 major parties) which I believe is guilty of fraud, lying, bribery, extortion, any crookedness or whatever shameless act the politicians do…and we all know both parties are guilty of all to some extent!

Also YES, I did read the book! A lot of the 1 Star reviewers here plainly did not read the book. Each and every one of them did NOT say one thing related to the book; no proof, no commentary or opinion on any of Author’s examples of fraud committed by the Clintons…nothing! Any person could have reviewed this book as they did. Well, I will go into much detail about facts, names and policies without giving away the house. If you really want to know what is going on and want real events leading to what seems to be a pattern of suspicious behavior then you need to read this book yourself.

In summary, Peter and his team have researched to a great deal by looking at financial records, tax records, government documents, and more that his team have uncovered a repeated pattern of financial transactions coinciding with official actions favorable to Clinton contributors. He is only focusing on foreign businesses, investors and governments because they cannot donate to political campaigns but CAN pay for speeches and can donate to the Clinton Foundation. Now, strangely enough these donations or payments suspiciously COINCIDE with major decisions made by US Governments and just by reading the whole chain of events as outlined and presented by Peter and his team…it is REALY hard to believe each on is simply a “coincidence” and should be not be explored or investigated! I’m not naïve and neither is most folks in the country (I hope) but it is just common sense when something like this event or that event happens and MILLIONS are donated to the Clinton Foundation, big favors to them, or huge payments for speeches followed by these suspicious donators somehow achieving a “hard to get” lucrative business deal or key piece of legislature passed which will definitely benefit them…that this COULD very well conclude anything but honest dealings (AKA bribery, tit for tat, etc.). Remember, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck…

Below are few examples of “questionable” donations from US companies. I’ll get to the foreign donators shortly.

In 1999, Anheuser-Busch Co gave five payments totaling $1 Million to the William J Clinton Presidential Library. Less than a month earlier the Clinton administration Federal Trade Commission dropped a bid to regulate beer, wine, and liquor advertising allegedly aimed at underage drinkers. Would that benefit the big beer company? Yep!
Also in 1999, Attorney from Chicago pledged $1 Million to this foundation. At the time, he was being investigated by the Justice Dept to determine if he was lying under oath concerning a Clinton donator and lobbying of Federal Officials. Three months after his donation…the DOJ dropped the investigation. Coincidence?
Same year, a Doctor and his lawyer were lobbying President Clinton to increase hospital Medicare reimbursements. The Doctor owned 8 hospitals in Puerto Rico and this would greatly benefit him. Eight months prior to Clinton proposing increased Medicare payments, the Dr’s lawyer gave the Clinton Library a $1 Million gift. The Dr donated $100,000 six months after that.
Just before Bill Clinton left office, he pardoned a billionaire fugitive Marc Rich who was an oil trader and financier; had business ties with Fidel Castro, Muammar Qaddafi and an Arab named Ayatollah Khomeini which he was trading oil with in violation of US law. Marc was indicted on numerous charges by US prosecutors and had fled the country. He owed $48M in back taxes which he tried to avoid, thus putting him on the FBI’s most wanted list. On Bill’s last day in office, he infamously pardoned March Rich. The pardon came after his ex-wife Denise Rich donated $100,000 to Hillary’s 2000 Senate campaign, $450,000 to the Clinton Library and $1 Million to the Democratic Party! Some will say it was just a coincidence while others with a little sense will say otherwise.

Now on to the Foreign Donators. Here is one you’ll like:
The eldest daughter of Uzbekistan’s dictator named Gulnora Karimova had a special friendship with the Clintons. The country dominated by forced labor, organized crime and torture to name a few, Gulnora was loathed by her people. Most saw her as greedy, power-hungry and uses her father to crush business people and whoever gets in her way. She sported a fashion and jewelry line she tried to establish in Europe and the United States. According to some resources, messages sent from her country to the US agencies showed that she was “hoping that a relationship with Bill will allow her to establish good relations to the Secretary of State (Hillary). She proceeded to cosponsor a Clinton Foundation fundraiser in Monaco where she posed with Bill for photo ops. Soon after, NBS’s Today Show reported that Bill Clinton was “among her friends”. In 2013, she had a falling out with her father and is currently under house arrest. No telling where that would have led.

The above events are from Chapter 1. Chapters 2 & 3 talk about the current media story regarding Frank Giustra (Mining tycoon and Bill’s traveling companion), Nursultan Nazarbayev (once ruler of Kazakhstan), a key official named Mukhtar Dzhakishev (president of the agency that runs Kazakhstan’s uranium and nuclear energy industry), Kazakh prime minister Karim Massimov, Ian Telfer (another mining tycoon and also involved in high profile penny stock mining companies) and Frank’s shell company UrAsia which is now part of his other company…Uranium One. There are 9 other players involved in this complex “Uranium Deal” which is nothing short of amazing (not in a good sense)! I don’t want to give away too much detail as to what took place, but these two chapters are about enough to warrant an investigation from US officials and Officials in Canada, never mind Kazakhstan doing an investigation…I can already tell you how that would turn out. In a nutshell, Frank’s Uranium One company was approved for mining in a place that is really difficult to get a permit to mine, somehow along the way acquired American Uranium companies (50% domestic Uranium output) which finally led to Hillary’s approval for sale of this company to the Russian Government. During this time of the “Uranium Deal” the Clinton Foundation received donations & commitments from the above mentioned players in excess of $145 Million.

In Chapter 4, Peter shows us the Indian Nuke deal that none other than Hillary Clinton had a key role in to helping India be a part of the Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) that was put into force in 1970. It basically said that the five countries: USA, Soviet Union, GB, France and China would be recognized as Nuclear Powers. This Treaty prevented any other country from attaining nuclear weapon status. If a country singed this treaty, it would be given the benefit of access to peaceful nuclear technology. India never signed this then and was not about to. But when Bush took office and there was a new administration, New Delhi began changing its mind. Indian governments hired expensive lobbyists and encouraged Indians in the US to build a rapport with both parties. Huge donations came into the Clinton machine; some came if form of Speech payments, others came in form of donations to Hillary’s Senate campaigns and her presidential bid. Those who could not legally donate to her campaigns donated Millions to the Clinton Foundation! The players in this deal were Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh; a globe-trotting businessman with celebrity friends and high level political connections named Sant Chatwal (came to the US in 1975); Vikram Chatwal (son of Sant) who became a Clinton benefactor like his father; an Indian parliament named Amar Singh who, like Sant, quickly elevated in the Clinton World! In the end the bill was passed in 2008 despite the public opposition of her closest advisers and the fact that it was a clear reversal of her previous policy positions. Why did she change her mind?? Did I mention the donations to the Clinton Foundation were in the Millions?

For the remaining chapters 6 to 11…I will leave that as a surprise and hopefully will motivate you to purchase this book and find out for yourself what has been and what is going on regarding the Clintons and their money machine (AKA Clinton Foundation). There really is just too much to write about here on the review. You will read about other suspicious deals involving foreign investors and businessmen who made out handsomely while donating major money to the Clinton Foundation. Peter does talk about the Haiti Disaster relief deal…as you hear currently on the news, which friends and family of the Clintons were awarded the concessions to rebuild there not to mention getting permits from the Haitian government (which it had not done in 50 years) to mine its natural resources worth Billions. Only two permits were awarded, one of the tiny companies was VCS Mining and had very little mining experience in Haiti or anywhere else! One of the members of VCS Mining was Tony Rodham, Hillary’s youngest brother. Would you believe he had NO experience in mining?

Do yourself a favor and get this book. Doesn’t matter if you are a Democrat and/or like the Clintons, you really should know what the Author has found and researched regarding these two and their friends, advisors, foreign business partners, investors, etc. For those who want footnotes…there are 29 pages full of footnotes (all in small font size) all totaling 635 footnotes giving this book and Peter a lot of credibility! I mean did anyone else go to so much trouble for a few years to gather up this much information to put it all together for all of us to read?

Some might say the Author is going after Hillary because he doesn’t want her to win presidency in 2016 or he is just going after the Democratic Party. Well, perhaps that could be true, however what else is true if the fact that the Author also wrote two other books titled…”Throw Them All Out" (2011) and “Extortion” (2013). His first book was written about concerns of members of Congress engaged in Insider Trading. He looked at both their stock trades and their official activities on certain voting bills. He discovered that politicians from BOTH parties had curious patterns in their stock trading. Was there absolute proof or a “smoking gun” of illegal or immoral behavior which led to why these politicians were making these particular trades at those particular times? No but the patterns where highly suspicious and did warrant an investigation which led to both parties to pass the Stock Act. President Obama condemned the practice of inside trading and later signed the Stock Act into law. His other book, “Extortion” argued that members of Congress from BOTH parties were in the habit of extorting campaign contributions and other favors from businesses and outside groups. I also read this book and was spot on! A very good read from Peter. He plainly demonstrated to his readers how money flowing into politics was not just about outside interests trying to “bribe” politicians, but politicians were knowingly putting outside interests in a position where they had to buy “protection” from them! Again, I can go into that book, but that is for another book review.

So you can see that Peter is not just going after the Democrat Party, or IMHO attacking the Clintons for personal reasons…but really just doing his work. What is his work you ask? Read his books and you’ll find out.

Let’s discuss a “Smoking Gun”. In reality, when someone is guilty of convicted of a crime rarely is there a smoking gun. We all want proof and HARD evidence of wrongdoing in every situation, but 99% of the time there simply is NO smoking gun. We have to rely on intuition and common sense derived from the facts, numbers, stats, comments, or any other type of information to come up with an ideal scenario or outcome. In law, a jury would use this information (no smoking gun) to come up with a verdict. Remember the OJ Simpson case. Prosecutors had all kinds of evidence, witnesses, and patterns of behavior but because of lack of an ACTUAL VIDEO (Smoking Gun) or perhaps a confession, there was no conviction by the state. We all watched the court room every day and in the end, there was no doubt in my mind OJ was guilty! I’m sure most of America thought so too! Well in this case, most Hillary fans will say…”there is no smoking gun, so they (Clintons) cannot be involved in such crooked scrupulous behavior and the Author wants us to believe.” And I have heard that from many “left leaning” news outlets. Their conclusion is – No hard evidence, no guilt. Well, do you think these intelligent savvy businessmen, investors and Gov’t officials are going to leave a “Smoking gun” around for us to see and use to convict them? All we have and should have is what the Author found by intense research.

Another thing to consider is, without going too far off topic, what about those 30,000 emails Hillary deleted from her PRIVATE server just a couple of months ago? For one, why would she have a PRIVATE SERVER?? Maybe because if you and your spouse are involved in suspicious behavior…accepting Millions in donations from foreigners (email would be best communication) which coincided with them benefiting from matters in which you handle and you wanted it ALL private… then a public server would not be in your best interest. Could it be possible that she and her “group” knew of this book releasing soon could bring about a warrant to search her private server and she simply had to destroy this evidence? Who knows…that server “may” have very well contained emails from foreign donors and could have been the Smoking Gun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Review for VIZIO SB3821-C6 38-inch Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer, April 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Just got this VIZIO SB3821 Sound Bar few days ago. It only took me an hour or so to install and hook up to my VIZIO 42" HDTV I have hanging on the wall. The sound is really awesome! Hard to imagine this robust sound is coming from a speaker bar this size. The wireless Subwoofer really hits some deep lows...puts in a nice background bass sound to my movies. VIZIO hit a home-run with this set up! Would recommend this to my friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review and FINALLY A RESOLVE TO THE OUTDOOR TEMP SHOWING DASHES, April 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great product - the La Crosse Technology Atomic Digital Wall Clock. It works great when it does work!
I know many reviewers say that the Outdoor Sensor may go out from time to time or it goes out and does not come back on. Yes, this finally happened to me after owning this wall clock for 4 months. The outdoor temp just showed dashes. I did a simple reset which is taking batteries out and waiting 5 minutes then replacing. The time came back within 4 - 5 hours but the outdoor temp was still showing dashes on the display.

Well I did it again by following the instructions for a Hard Reset from the La Crosse support page (Q: Outdoor Temperature Shows Dashes.) After doing it by their instructions...IT WORKED! The Atomic Wall clock finally showed the outdoor temp.

Here is the URL: https://www.lacrossetechnology.com/support/top_solutions.php#a

Just copy and paste the above link to your browser address bar and go to this page.
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE "T" and your outdoor temp should work.
REMEMBER TO REPLACE BATTERIES WITH NEW BATTERIES -- even if the batteries are still good. This device needs fresh new batteries!
