Pennsylvania girl, 5, suspended for threatening to shoot girl with pink toy gun that blows soapy bubbles
A 5-year-old Pennsylvania girl who told another girl she was going to shoot her with a pink Hello Kitty toy gun that blows soapy bubbles has been suspended from kindergarten.
Her family has hired an attorney to fight the punishment, which initially was 10 days for issuing a ‘terroristic threat.’ But her punishment was reduced to two days after her mother met with school officials and had the incident dropped to ‘threatening to harm another student,’ which apparently carries a lesser punishment.
“It’s laughable,” Robin Ficker, the girl’s attorney told FoxNews.com. “This is a girl who had no idea about killing or what happened in Connecticut.”
New Proposal Will Force Gun Owners to Store Assault Weapons At Government Authorized Storage Depots
Because you can never have too many laws, regulations and mandates, Massachusetts State Representative David Linsky has filed a new bill that would, among other things, force gun owners to undergo mental health background checks, acquire liability insurance, pay an additional 25% tax on all forms of ammunition, and require firearms categorized as “assault weapons” to be stored outside of their homes and only at government approved storage depots.
DHS Says Gun Owners Are Terrorists
Following Obama’s choreographed attack on the Second Amendment earlier this week, the Department of Homeland Security announced it will join the administration, the Justice Department and the FBI in a renewed attack on firearms.
Under the guise of preventing what is largely unpreventable short of disarming the entire country – eliminating “active shooter” situations – DHS boss Janet Napolitano announced on Wednesday she will work to “identify measures that could be taken to reduce the risk of mass casualty shootings,” in other words, disarming law-abiding gun owners.
Pregnant woman hogtied by officers gets $250,000 settlement
A pregnant woman who was pulled over for talking on her cellphone — and then hurled to the ground and hogtied by CHP officers on the shoulder of the busy Harbor Freeway — has been paid $250,000 in damages.
The 30-year-old woman was charged with resisting arrest and driving with a suspended license, but the charges were dropped after a judge was shown a video of the incident, captured on a camera mounted on the dashboard of a California Highway Patrol cruiser.
Beaufort County (NC) Calls For Gun Law Nullification And Constitutional Convention
In light of President Obama’s executive orders, Beaufort County sets precedent for North Carolina and other states to pass a nullification resolution in support of the 2nd Amendment.
Rep. Charlie Rangel on Guns: ‘Some of the Southern Areas Have Cultures that We Have to Overcome’
Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), speaking on “MSNBC Live” on Jan. 16 said that “some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome” when it comes to gun control.
Rangel was asked by anchor Thomas Roberts whether new gun control measures passed in New York State should serve as models for other states:
“If you’re proud of what New York has done, obviously there is not going to be any perfect policy or perfect law that everybody is going to agree on from both sides saying that this is key perfection but do you think that New York, and what has been done in this state, could be used as a role model for other states that would like to enact something of New York’s model?”
Rangel responded by saying: “Well I hope so. New York is a little different and more progressive in a lot of areas than some other states and some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome.”
Male Nurse Arrested for Allegedly Having Sex With Corpse
A male nurse at the Sherman Oaks Hospital has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a corpse.
Alejandro Razo, 61, was arrested on Sunday on a state Health and Safety Code violation after being caught by security guards, police said.
He is free on $20,000 bail and is due in court on Feb. 11, according to online records.
The L.A. County coroner will perform an autopsy on the body, police said.
The findings could determine if more charges will be filed.
The coroner’s office declined further comment on the case, citing a security hold.
No other details were immediately available.
Anyone with information is asked to call the LAPD.
Photographer Attacked By Metro Security For Taking Pictures, Filming – Miami man pushed down escalator, violently choked for standing up for his rights
Photographer Carlos Miller and his companion were viciously attacked by security guards while taking pictures at Miami-Dade Metrorail on Sunday night, and they captured most of the incident on film.
The pair were idly passing time waiting for a train home by taking shots of the Dade County Courthouse, a looming piece of architecture visible from the train platform. Suddenly, as if out of some some dystopian movie, a voice boomed over the loudspeaker ordering them to stop taking photographs.
When the pair ignored the order, a 50 State security guard emerged on to the platform to confront them.
Panetta to lift ban on women in combat
Women in all branches of the military soon will have unprecedented opportunities to serve on the front lines of the nation’s wars.
Leon Panetta, in one of his last acts as President Obama’s defense secretary, is preparing to announce the policy change, which would open hundreds of thousands of front-line positions and potentially elite commando jobs after more than a decade at war, the Pentagon confirmed Wednesday.
The groundbreaking move recommended by the Joint Chiefs of Staff overturns a 1994 rule banning women from being assigned to smaller ground combat units. Panetta’s decision gives the military services until January 2016 to seek special exceptions if they believe any positions must remain closed to women.
Elementary School Girl Threatened With Arrest Over ‘Paper Gun’ – Hysteria in aftermath of Sandy Hook reaches new heights
A South Philadelphia elementary student was searched in front of classmates and threatened with arrest after she mistakenly brought a “paper gun” to school, yet another example of the hysteria sweeping America’s school system in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre.
Melody Valentin was given the “paper gun,” which amounted to little more than a sheet of A4 paper with a corner torn off, by her grandfather before she put it in her pocket and forgot all about it.
When a school administrator found the piece of paper, Valentin was verbally chastised in front of the whole class and, according to her mother, even threatened with arrest. Valentin was also searched as the other children looked on.
The American Revolution Started Over Disarmament
The American revolution started on April 19, 1775 in response to an attempt by the British regulars to disarm the militia of their stockpiles near Lexington. It became the shot heard ’round the world. The subsequent Constitution and Bill of Rights set up checks and balances, in part as a response to various types of British abuse and interference.
Today, the establishment has openly violated much the Constitution and Bill of Rights, wantonly spied on communications without warrant and staked TSA agents at airports to abuse the traveling public despite the 4th Amendment, and has conducted a long train of abuses. Now it seeks to dismantle the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms, removing yet another important check on government power.
Want To Tell The State To Stick It? Homeschool Your Kids
The swelling legions of homeschoolers poke a subtle rebuke at America’s ever expanding nanny state. Under both parties, Washington has systematically invaded private spheres and co-opted public services historically performed by local bodies. But a spontaneous groundswell of freedom minded folks has continued America’s rich inheritance of rugged individualism.
The God-fearing, flag-waiving, gun-toting homeschool crowd embodies the American spirit of mutual self-reliance. You won’t encounter a more neighborly bunch. Their children thrive without government “help.” Their support networks blossom sans the state’s sanction. Meanwhile, taxpayers waste a fortune securing abysmal academic results. In 2012, SAT scores fell to their lowest level since tracking began. As spending soars, assessment scores plummet.
Law-enforcer misuse of driver database soars
Florida’s driver-and-vehicle database, the system that can help law enforcement identify victims of fatal crashes and decipher the identity of a suspect, can be a useful tool for cops.
But the system — known as D.A.V.I.D., for Driving and Vehicle Information Database — can also be easily abused.
Data obtained by the Orlando Sentinel show the number of Florida law-enforcement officers suspected of misusing D.A.V.I.D. skyrocketed last year.
At least 74 law enforcers were suspected of misusing D.A.V.I.D. in 2012, a nearly 400 percent increase from 2011, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
Officers who needlessly pull information or photographs from D.A.V.I.D. that would otherwise be private could face criminal charges, sanctions or disciplinary action.
Marxist Roots of the GOP
It’s critical to know the origin of Marxism in America, and the bankruptcy of that economic system. If you don’t have time to read my book, or Kennedy and Benson’s book Lincoln’s Marxists, do read this article from a 2011 issue of the International Socialist Review, explaining the close ties between Abe Lincoln, New York Tribune publisher Horace Greeley, and his star journalist…Karl Marx.
Yes, Karl Marx once wrote for the New York Tribune. Marx was a great fan of Lincoln, who was the first American president to begin adopting Marx’s ten points of the Communist Manifesto. Today, U.S. government policy includes all ten points of Communism in The Communist Manifesto. If you doubt this, look it up online.
Guns and the President
Here is an uncomfortable pop quiz: Who has killed more children, Adam Lanza or Barack Obama? We’ll hold off on the answer for a few paragraphs while we look at the state of governmental excess – including killing – in America. But you can probably guess the correct answer from the manner in which I have posed the question.
DEPUTY: “I’LL SHOOT YOU IN THE F***ING BACK!”
He states “I don’t care if he has a license or not.”
Illinois Citizens Still Being Arrested For Filming Cops – Despite Court Ruling Which Blocked Unconstitutional Law
Following yesterday’s story concerning residents of Naperville who attempted to resist utility workers invading their private property to install so-called ‘smart meters’ – which have been linked with health issues – it emerged that one of the refusniks, Malia “Kim” Bendis, was arrested on attempted eavesdropping charges for recording police officers during the incident.
The irony of citizens being arrested for supposedly “eavesdropping” on cops in public where there is no expectation of privacy, while simultaneously the government forcibly installs devices on people’s property that really do eavesdrop on them in total violation of the 4th amendment, is staggering. Remember – this is a state that threatens to send people to prison for life for recording police officers.
2 meter opponents arrested in Naperville: ‘A society of violating one another’
Two vocal opponents of Naperville’s initiative to install wireless electric meters on homes were arrested after interfering with the installation process, according to city officials.
Police are accompanying crews this week as they install smart meters at homes that previously sent away installers.
“The previous installation attempts were met with some resistance and we wanted to ensure our employees’ safety,” City Manager Doug Krieger said.
Naperville has installed smart meters on 57,000 homes and is about 99 percent through with the process. Officials have said the project will make the electric system more reliable and efficient and reduce costs.
However, the Naperville Smart Meter Awareness group has expressed concerns over whether the wireless meters will affect health, security and privacy. The group has a federal lawsuit pending against the city.
Gun Owners Refuse to Register Under New York Law
After Democrats in New York rammed a sweeping assault on the right to keep and bear arms through the legislature that failed to exempt police officers from the draconian restrictions, gun owners and even some lawmakers are planning what has been dubbed potentially the largest act of civil disobedience in state history. According to news reports, gun rights activists are urging everyone to defy far-left Governor Andrew Cuomo’s new registration mandate while daring authorities to “come and take it.”
Analysts say the legislation, passed in a frenzy last week in the wake of the Newtown shooting, represents the most brazen infringement on the right to keep and bear arms anywhere in the nation. Among other points, the so-called SAFE Act seeks to limit magazines to just seven bullets, require virtually all of the estimated one million semi-automatic rifles in the state to be registered with authorities, mandate reporting of patients who express indications that they may have thoughts about hurting themselves or others by doctors, and more.
Martin King’s Family: Share Civil Trial Case That US Govt Assassinated Martin
Coretta Scott King: “We have done what we can to reveal the truth, and we now urge you as members of the media, and we call upon elected officials, and other persons of influence to do what they can to share the revelation of this case to the widest possible audience.” – King Family Press Conference, Dec. 9, 1999.
From the King Center on the family’s civil trial that found the US government guilty in Martin’s assassination:
After four weeks of testimony and over 70 witnesses in a civil trial in Memphis, Tennessee, twelve jurors reached a unanimous verdict on December 8, 1999 after about an hour of deliberations that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. In a press statement held the following day in Atlanta, Mrs. Coretta Scott King welcomed the verdict, saying , “There is abundant evidence of a major high level conspiracy in the assassination of my husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. And the civil court’s unanimous verdict has validated our belief. I wholeheartedly applaud the verdict of the jury and I feel that justice has been well served in their deliberations. This verdict is not only a great victory for my family, but also a great victory for America. It is a great victory for truth itself. It is important to know that this was a SWIFT verdict, delivered after about an hour of jury deliberation. The jury was clearly convinced by the extensive evidence that was presented during the trial that, in addition to Mr. Jowers, the conspiracy of the Mafia, local, state and federal government agencies, were deeply involved in the assassination of my husband. The jury also affirmed overwhelming evidence that identified someone else, not James Earl Ray, as the shooter, and that Mr. Ray was set up to take the blame. I want to make it clear that my family has no interest in retribution. Instead, our sole concern has been that the full truth of the assassination has been revealed and adjudicated in a court of law… My husband once said, “The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” To-day, almost 32 years after my husband and the father of my four children was assassinated, I feel that the jury’s verdict clearly affirms this principle. With this faith, we can begin the 21st century and the new millennium with a new spirit of hope and healing.”
TSA Conducts Random Checks At Austin Train Station – Passengers asked to “volunteer” to have bags searched
Not content with treating people like prisoners in the nation’s airports, the TSA is rapidly expanding its operations with random spot checks on Amtrak trains. This was in full evidence yesterday in Austin, Texas, as passengers at Lamar Boulevard station were treated to random bag checks at the hands of agents and drug sniffing dogs.
The TSA agents, as well as Austin police officers, and officials from the Department of Homeland Security all descended on the station yesterday morning at 9.30am.
“The security at airports has increased so the bad guys are now traveling on the trains and buses,” TSA official George Robinson told kxan news. Of course, no “bad guys” were actually discovered. In fact, nothing was discovered, other than a few disgruntled passengers who did not appreciate the government rifling through their bags.
“These facilities are not necessarily protected as well,” Robinson added, noting “We do impromptu visits at locations throughout the country.”
The Original Green Movement
I became frustrated when I started studying the history of Communism in 2006. I read Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago, The Black Book of Communism, many of Robert Conrad’s works, and much more. Absolute oppression and evil. The crushing of generations. As I kept reading I would ask, “Why didn’t anyone fight back?”
Granted, Russians didn’t have the benefit of historical parallels to their situation. The consensus was generally positive in 1917 when Lenin promised universal health care, infrastructure investments (electricity), pulling out of an unpopular war (WWI), and other hope and change assurances.
But there were Russians who did fight back, physically and economically. Called “bandits,” “wreckers,” or “internal enemies,” these were citizens who saw a tyrant’s actions through the fog of his words. They pushed back.
Captain Kirk’s Predecessor: Star Trek Was RAND Corporation Predictive Programming
In a rare and recently unearthed interview from 1965, the actor who preceded William Shatner as first captain of the Enterprise, stated that the series was based on the RAND Corporation’s “projection of things to come”.
Actor Jeffrey Hunter, who played captain Christopher Pike in the Star Trek pilot “The Cage” told a Hollywood columnist in January of ’65 that he hoped the pilot-episode would be picked up as a series because he was intrigued by the fact that the series was based on the RAND corporation’s “projection of things to come.”
“We should know within several weeks whether the show has been sold.”, Hunter stated almost half a century ago.
“It will be an hour long, in color, with a regular cast of a half-dozen or so and an important guest star each week.”, he stated hopefully.
“The things that intrigues me the most”, Hunter said, “is that it is actually based on the Rand Corporation’s projection of things to come. Except for the fictional characters, it will be like getting a look into the future and some of the predictions will surely come true in our lifetime.”
Fram or STP? Use an oil filter as a suppressor.
Firearms expert and awesome marksman, Hickok45 takes to his shooting range to demonstrate an alternative to the costly gun suppressor – a good one costs about $1000 when you include an outrageous $200 tax stamp. And yes, it’s a common automotive oil filter, available anywhere. The only difference is that he’s added an inexpensive adapter. Check out this video which is suitable and fun for the whole family……especially Hickok.
