  • NY Times: Returning Vets Could Lead to Emergence of Racist Terrorist Groups

    The Juvenile Author

    I was brought up to believe that getting an education, especially a “higher” education, including advanced collegiate degrees, implied that you were more intelligent. The process is supposed to broaden your thought processes, deepen your understanding of the world around you. Apparently, those beliefs could not be more wrong.

    Thursday, in the New York Times, there was an insidious article by one Kathleen Belew. Ms. Kathleen Belew is an “a postdoctoral fellow in history at Northwestern University, is at work on a book on Vietnam veterans and the radical right.” She is also a “Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in History, is also a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis. She received her Ph.D from Yale University for ‘Theaters of War: Paramilitarism, Mercenaries, and the Racist Right from Vietnam to Oklahoma City.’ While at Rutgers she will be teaching history courses, including the ‘Aftermath of the Vietnam War’ and ‘The American Vigilante.’”

    Ms. Belew is obviously highly educated. So much so, that she now deems it her place to grace the rest of us with her opinions on the Vietnam war, Vietnam war veterans, veterans in general, and best of all, how those of us who have gone to war and come home with brain injuries, have the potential to become racist terrorists.

    I thought I had read it or seen it all – all types of stupid and uneducated comments about Veterans being “dangerous, volatile, violent or even terrorists.”

    The author of this article, Kathleen Belew, could possibly be the worst of them all!

  • Bloomturd’s New Campaign: Take Guns from Women in Abusive Households

    For all Michael Bloomberg’s talk about simply wanting to secure expanded background checks, his newest gun control group “Everytown for Gun Safety” is on a broader mission to take away the guns women in abusive homes could use for self defense.

    In an April 16th tweet posted at 6:42 a.m, Everytown came out against guns in homes where someone is abusive. They did so without recognizing that the gun may be the only thing that gives the victim of abuse a fighting chance of survival.

    The tweet said: “The presence of a gun makes it five times more likely domestic violence will turn into murder.” The bottom of the tweet is captioned: “Support policies that keep guns out of the hands of abusers.”

  • Kroger manager fired after he slams a knife-wielding shoplifter to the ground (Pussification of the USA)

    If you’re an employee of a chain store and you see a shoplifter, don’t confront them. It’s been proven again and again and again and again that no matter how noble your intentions are, you can be fired from your job. As KDFW FOX 4 News reports, this is exactly what happened to one Kroger grocery store manager in Arlington, Texas.

    A customer in the parking lot of the Kroger recorded the incident on their cellphone. In the video, you can see the unnamed manager approach the shoplifting suspect. The suspect appears to have a knife in his hand. The manager shoves him into a parked car and gets the knife out the suspect’s hand before eventually slamming him down to the ground.

  • Suspected pipe bomb was box of paintbrushes (Pussification of the USA)

    The San Mateo County bomb squad destroyed a suspected pipe bomb Thursday in Half Moon Bay and later discovered the supposed threat was just a set of paintbrushes, authorities said.

    A resident walking in the 500 block of Kelly Street noticed something that looked like a pipe bomb, and reported the discovery to authorities about 11:06 a.m., San Mateo County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt said. The sheriff’s office and bomb squad responded to the area near Cabrillo Highway to eliminate any potential threat.

  • Inside the Bundy Ranch and the Fight Against Government Overreach

    Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday.

    A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkerville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years.

    Bundy told Breitbart News the only communication he has received from the BLM recently has been through the mail.

    “I’ve received some certified letters that I haven’t opened, and that’s the only conversation on that, so I’m going to save those letters for maybe awhile. That’s how serious I think they are,” he said. “I’m tired of their bull. They put their guns at me and my family and these American people. How can I honor one of their letters? I might never open them,” he added.

    Throughout the ordeal, which stems from a 20-year legal battle between the family and the federal government, Bundy has offered several explanations for why he’s in the right, most prominently his belief that the federal government has no authority over him.

    Only a week earlier, both the federal agents Bundy supporters had snipers trained on each other in the showdown. But Friday on the ranch, mothers and fathers strolled around the clay desert ground along with their children in tow wearing name tag stickers saying, “Hello, my name is domestic terrorist,” a reference to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s accusation toward Bundy and his allies. Reid later called the group “domestic violent terrorist wannabes” on Friday afternoon.

    “Bundy doesn’t believe that the American government is valid, he believes that the United States is a foreign government. He doesn’t pay his taxes. He doesn’t follow the law. He doesn’t pay his fees,” said Reid on Las Vegas’ KSNV.

  • The Next Shoe Just Dropped: Court Denies Attorney-Client Privilege

     

    Submitted by Simon Black via Sovereign Man blog,

    In the Land of the Free, people grow up hearing a lot of things about their freedom.

    You’re told that you live in the freest country on the planet. You’re told that other nations ‘hate you’ for your freedom.

    And you’re told that you have the most open and fair justice system in the world.

    This justice system is supposedly founded on bedrock principles– things like a defendant being presumed innocent until proven guilty. The right to due process and an impartial hearing. The right to counsel and attorney-client privilege.

    Yet each of these core pillars has been systematically dismantled over the years:

    1. So that it can operate with impunity outside of the law, the federal government has set up its own secret FISA courts to rubber stamp NSA surveillance.

    According to data obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, of the nearly 34,000 surveillance requests made to FISA courts in the last 35-years, only ELEVEN have been rejected.

    Unsurprising given that FISA courts only hear the case from the government’s perspective. It is literally a one-sided argument in FISA courts. Hardly an impartial hearing, no?

  • SAFE Act Repeal – Legal Update by NYSRPAs Tom King

    Friends,

    The above suit (Razzano vs. Cuomo – Filed by SCOPENY) has failed to produce an injunction or any other effect to restore our Second Amendment rights. That leaves the NYSRPA’s suit as the only viable suit. People have criticized us for spending so much money to initiate the suit, critiquing the basis upon which we prosecuted our litigation, the court we chose, for the initial filing and the lawyers we hired for the litigation. Yet the NYSRPA’s is the last case standing, Why? We didn’t undertake this endeavor to grow our association, make headlines or disrespect others; we did it to win and restore our Second Amendment rights. No more no less. We chose the best attorneys, we partnered with the right plaintiffs and as the NRA affiliate in NYS we had the expertise of the premier 2nd Amendment group in the world backing the NYSRPA. Most of all we had the great 2nd Amendment supporters of New York State supporting our effort.

    We never promised you a victory all we promised was a fight to the end and to that we are still committed. We never held spurious press conferences to give you false hope. We reported what happened when it happened. We believe that’s what a member driven association is about; telling the truth to our members and the 2nd Amendment Community.

    The suit is currently in the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals awaiting the briefing deadline for both sides. Can we promise a victory? We can’t, remember current SCOTUS member Sonya Sotomayor was appointed to SCOTUS from this court. That said we have from the start prepared and developed this case as one bound for the Supreme Court and we all still believe that is possible and continue to work toward that goal. Part of that preparation is public opinion, even Supreme Court Judges read the papers and listen to the news, that is why we have been fighting to keep public statements to a minimum and civil with no threats. Early in this process the State used comments taken from the February 28, 2013 Rally in an attempt to block NRA participation during an oral arguments. We prevailed but it was close and that’s why our attorneys have been demanding we don’t participate in large rallies at the Capital. As you will undoubtedly remember the NYSRPA has not directly participated in any rally since that date. That does not mean we don’t support them if we are asked to. Absolutely not! Last April at the rally where Judge Janine wowed the crowd with her inspiring presentation; the NYSRPA paid her fees and expenses. We are involved when asked.

    This is not a popularity contest it is a battle to the end and “we are in it to win it” in any way possible but we believe at this time the Courts are our only hope. Please continue to help support our lawsuit! Ask yourself; WHAT ARE MY 2nd AMMENDMENT RIGHTS WORTH?

    Win Quiet, Lose Loud!

  • 86M Full-Time Private-Sector Workers Sustain 148M Benefit Takers

    Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.

    That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work — in the private sector — and did it week after week after week.

    These are the people who built America, and these are the people who can sustain it as a free country. The liberal media have not made them famous like the polar bear, but they are truly a threatened species.

    It is not a rancher with a few hundred head of cattle that is attacking their habitat, nor an energy company developing a fossil fuel. It is big government and its primary weapon — an ever-expanding welfare state.

  • Bloomturd Plans a $50 Million Challenge to the N.R.A. (Another FAIL in the Making)

    Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association.

    Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own.

    “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A. “ ‘If you don’t vote with us we’re going to go after your kids and your grandkids and your great-grandkids. And we’re never going to stop.’ ”

    He added: “We’ve got to make them afraid of us.”

    The considerable advantages that gun rights advocates enjoy — in intensity, organization and political clout — will not be easy to overcome. Indeed, Mr. Bloomberg has already spent millions of dollars trying to persuade members of Congress to support enhanced background check laws with virtually nothing to show for it.

    What is more, for many gun owners, the issue is a deeply personal one that energizes them politically, said Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, who dismissed the mayor’s plans.

    “He’s got the money to waste,” Mr. Pratt said. “So I guess he’s free to do so. But frankly, I think he’s going to find out why his side keeps losing.”

    The N.R.A. had no comment.

    Mr. Bloomberg’s blueprint reimagines the way gun control advocates have traditionally confronted the issue. Rather than relying so heavily on television ad campaigns, Mr. Bloomberg will put a large portion of his resources into the often-unseen field operations that have been effective for groups…

  • Chicago Police Are Also Cooking Their Crime Numbers (Just Like NYPD!)

    It was a balmy afternoon last July when the call came in: Dead body found inside empty warehouse on the West Side.

    Chicago police officers drove through an industrial stretch of the hardscrabble Austin neighborhood and pulled up to the 4600 block of West Arthington Street. The warehouse in question was an unremarkable-looking red-brick single-story building with a tall barbed-wire fence. Vacant for six years, it had been visited that day by its owner and a real-estate agent—the person who had called 911.

    The place lacked electricity, so crime scene technicians set up generators and portable lights. The power flickered on to reveal a grisly sight. In a small office, on soggy carpeting covered in broken ceiling tiles, lay a naked, lifeless woman. She had long red-streaked black hair and purple glitter nail polish on her left toenails (her right ones were gone), but beyond that it was hard to discern much. Her face and body were bloated and badly decomposed, her hands ash colored. Maggots feasted on her flesh.

    At the woman’s feet, detectives found a curled strand of telephone wire. Draped over her right hand was a different kind of wire: thin and brown. The same brown wire was wrapped around each armrest of a wooden chair next to her.

    The following day, July 24, a pathologist in the Cook County medical examiner’s office noticed something else that had been obscured by rotting skin: a thin gag tied around the corpse’s mouth.

    Thanks to some still-visible tattoos, detectives soon identified this unfortunate woman: Tiara Groves, a 20-year-old from Austin. She was last seen walking alone in the wee hours of Sunday, July 14, near a liquor store two miles from the warehouse. At least eight witnesses who saw her that night told police a similar story: She appeared drunk and was upset—one man said that she was crying so hard she couldn’t catch her breath—but refused offers of help. A man who talked to her outside the liquor store said that Groves warned him, excitedly and incoherently, that he should stay away from her or else somebody (she didn’t say who) would kill him too.

    Toxicology tests showed she had heroin and alcohol in her system, but not enough to kill her. All signs pointed to foul play. According to the young woman’s mother, who had filed a missing-person report, the police had no doubt. “When this detective came to my house, he said, ‘We found your daughter. . . . Your daughter has been murdered,’ ” Alice Groves recalls. “He told me they’re going to get the one that did it.”

    On October 28, a pathologist ruled the death of Tiara Groves a homicide by “unspecified means.” This rare ruling means yes, somebody had killed Groves, but the pathologist couldn’t pinpoint the exact cause of death.

    Given the finding of homicide—and the corroborating evidence at the crime scene—the Chicago Police Department should have counted Groves’s death as a murder. And it did. Until December 18. On that day, the police report indicates, a lieutenant overseeing the Groves case reclassified the homicide investigation as a noncriminal death investigation. In his writeup, he cited the medical examiner’s “inability to determine a cause of death.”

    That lieutenant was Denis Walsh—the same cop who had played a crucial role in the alleged cover-up in the 2004 killing of David Koschman, the 21-year-old who died after being punched by a nephew of former mayor Richard M. Daley. Walsh allegedly took the Koschman file home. For years, police officials said that it was lost. After the Sun-Times reported it missing, the file mysteriously reappeared.

    But back to Tiara Groves. With the stroke of a computer key, she was airbrushed out of Chicago’s homicide statistics.

    The change stunned officers. Current and former veteran detectives who reviewed the Groves case at Chicago’s request were just as incredulous. Says a retired high-level detective, “How can you be tied to a chair and gagged, with no clothes on, and that’s a [noncriminal] death investigation?” (He, like most of the nearly 40 police sources interviewed for this story, declined to be identified by name, citing fears of disciplinary action or other retribution.)

    Was it just a coincidence, some wondered, that the reclassification occurred less than two weeks before the end of the year, when the city of Chicago’s final homicide numbers for 2013 would be tallied? “They essentially wiped away one of the murders in the city, which is crazy,” says a police insider. “But that’s the kind of shit that’s going on.”

  • Down the Slippery Slope: A Timeline of Social De-Evolution in America

    It is certainly not breaking news to assert that America is in cultural decline. Many aspects of this decline have been widely documented: the breakdown of the family, threats to life, and ever increasing secularization.

    My intent in this article is to draw together the consistent progression of this cultural decline so that we can step back and examine the path of the social revolution that has been underway in America for some time. As we see, the undermining of family and life is not something new.

    I have broken the following timeline into several stages. That is not to say that the only developments of this time concerned a single matter. Rather, the name marks the major turning point of that stage. I have also included a few international events, when they seem indicative of broader social change.

  • Russian Gun rights activists promise tough response to rejection of self-defense initiative

    A public petition asking to broaden the legislative limits of self-defense has been rejected by the Interior and Justice Ministries, but activists intend to continue the campaign and promise pickets near the government HQ and rallies across the country.

    The petition entitled “My home is my fortress” has collected over 100,000 signatures of Russian citizens on a dedicated web-site which officially gave it legislative legs. If the draft was passed any action of a citizen inside his or her home against an intruder would be qualified as necessary self-defense, which, in turn, could lead to the withdrawal of murder charges or of inflicting grievous bodily harm.

    Both the Interior Ministry and the Justice Ministry have vetoed the draft, the mass circulation daily Izvestia reported on Tuesday quoting an unnamed source in the special federal group for dealing with public initiatives.

    The group was scheduled to consider the petition at a special session on Tuesday, but without the ministries’ approval it will most likely be rejected, the source said.

    However, on Tuesday afternoon the working group reported that it had approved the petition on broadening the limits of necessary self-defense, and forwarded the document to the government. “This is the first initiative of three that had gathered the necessary 100,000 signatures on the internet,” the Open Government Minister Mikhail Abyzov told the ITAR-TASS news agency.

  • Eyewitness says BLM “scared crapless” by THOUSANDS of patriots supporting NV rancher Bundy

    The People vs. BLM

    I was basically standing around twiddling my thumbs when the word came down that the Director of BLM had surrendered and all forces would be withdrawn. I could not go on. The road was blocked and would be blocked probably for the rest of the day at least. A bunch of us turned around and left. It was over.

    There were THOUSANDS of people there, and more arriving every minute. The ranch, Gold Butte, the entire area was completely surrounded by Americans. The highway was completely blocked in both directions of people trying to get through. Everyone was very peaceful and friendly. No fights or anything. There was a rumor in the line, that some of the mercenaries hired by the feds had defected and were now on the side of the Americans.

    I came back and immediately saw this [the media’s] pack of lies and half truths.
