Schneier on Security: The War on the Unexpected

November 01, 2007
The War on the Unexpected

We've opened up a new front on the war on terror. It's an attack on the unique, the unorthodox, the unexpected; it's a war on different. If you act different, you might find yourself investigated, questioned, and even arrested -- even if you did nothing wrong, and had no intention of doing anything wrong. The problem is a combination of citizen informants and a CYA attitude among police that results in a knee-jerk escalation of reported threats.

This isn't the way counterterrorism is supposed to work, but it's happening everywhere. It's a result of our relentless campaign to convince ordinary citizens that they're the front line of terrorism defense. "If you see something, say something" is how the ads read in the New York City subways. "If you suspect something, report it" urges another ad campaign in Manchester, UK. The Michigan State Police have a seven-minute video. Administration officials from then-attorney general John Ashcroft to DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff to President Bush have asked us all to report any suspicious activity.

Thrity-six years ago today

I posted the following three years ago, and today it is even more relevant:
Nixon ended the Gold Standard, and today, I read this interesting piece of information.

More on FedLine Advantage can be found here.

By the by, both Nixon's act was a betrayal to his oath of office. The best example to prove this is that what took $100.00 dollars in 1971, now takes $468.40. You can find the proof here, which is the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics tool called the Inflation Calculator. To put the above figures in context, in 1913 when the Federal Reserve Corporation was created, it took fifty-eight years for that figure of inflation to reach $100.00/$409.09. That same level of inflation (actually the figure was $411.36) was reached in 1999, only twenty-eight years later. To put succinctly, inflation is a hidden tax.

And, if the private corporation intentionally misnamed the Federal Reserve predicts that it's new web-based system is safe, just remember how "well" it does with the economy.
I also wish to point out that in 2004, it took $468.40, and today, it takes $514.32 for a decrease in the value of your "dollars" by $45.92. Now with the Chinese capable of so much because of their massive u.S. "debt" holdings, and the "Global Credit Crisis", your worth just seems so much better now, does it not?

This nation, by design since 1910, is being destroyed. I know I would like to see this course reversed and am working for the benefit of my children, and myself, to see this happen. You can too by making the choice for Ron Paul, who is not a savior, but a man wanting to see this nation proceed and succeed by what the Founding Fathers gave us and which is our birthright. If you wish to continue on the path of our destruction, which is painfully obvious, then the choice is yours.

August 6th & Tom Tancredo

Sixty-two years ago, "Little Boy" was dropped on Hiroshima and then three days later "Fat Man" did his work and World War II was effectively over.

This past weekend, Tom Tancredo said something at an Iowa debate, that I have been saying since September 12th, 2001 and stated in a post two years ago- and he is right.

Unfortunately, since we no longer elect men to run the nation, just squabbling little children- which even though grown, are no more than vain and unworthy people who are cowards, and what should be done will not happen...

Cops: Man, 93, Shoots Violent Robber

Jul 27 02:46 PM US/Eastern

EL DORADO, Ark. (AP) - An elderly man beaten unconscious by an assailant wielding a soda can awoke and shot the man during an attempted robbery, police said.

Willie Lee Hill, 93, told police he saw the robber while in his bedroom Wednesday night. Hill confronted the man and was struck at least 50 times, police said. He was knocked unconscious.

Covered in blood, Hill regained consciousness a short time later and pulled a .38-caliber handgun on his attacker. The suspect, Douglas B. Williams Jr., saw the gun and charged the man, who fired a bullet that struck Williams in the throat, police said.

"I got what I deserved," Williams, 24, told police when they arrived, officers said. Investigators reported finding, among other items, a Craftsman drill bit set, three pocket knives and two hearing aids inside his pockets.
No you did not- you deserved death Douglas B. Williams.

Disney stubs out smoking from its films

By Matthew Garrahan in Los Angeles

Published: July 25 2007 18:17 | Last updated: July 25 2007 18:17

Walt Disney on Wednesday became the first Hollywood studio to phase out cigarette smoking in its films, saying smoking scenes in future Disney-branded movies would be "non-existent".

The Disney move is the latest blow Hollywood has dealt the tobacco industry and comes weeks after the Motion Picture Association of America, responsible for the film ratings system, said it would consider smoking alongside other factors, such as violence or sexual content, when rating a film.

In a letter to Edward Markey, chairman of the House sub-committee on telecommunications and the internet, Bob Iger, Disney's chief executive, said the company would also "discourage" depictions of smoking in films made by its other studio labels, which make films for older audiences, such as Miramax and Touchstone.

Disney plans to add public service announcements to DVDs of any future films containing smoking scenes and said it would work with owners of cinema chains to show anti-smoking announcements before the start of films.
Nevertheless, it seems, for at least the past ten years, every Disney production CERTAINLY had a POLE-SMOKER in it and I am sure the future productions will too.

Bush says Sutton fair

Bush won't promise to pardon border agents
Says 'dear friend' who prosecuted Ramos, Compean 'even-handed,' 'fair guy'
Posted: July 20, 2007
3:33 p.m. Eastern

Questioned by an audience member at a forum, President Bush said he could not promise to pardon former U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.

"I'm not going to make that kind of promise in a forum like this," Bush said at the Nashville event yesterday, which focused on his budget.

Bush referred to the U.S. attorney responsible for the case, Johnny Sutton, as "a dear friend of mine" and called him a "fair guy" and "even-handed," according to a White House transcript.

The president elicited laughter when he told the questioner, "You've got a nice smile, but you can't entice me into making a public statement."

"I know this is an emotional issue, but people need to look at the facts," Bush said. "These men were convicted by a jury of their peers after listening to the facts as my friend, Johnny Sutton, presented them. But anyway, no, I won't make you that promise."
Either you are a liar or a fool President Bush- I think you both.

A liar for saying Ramso & Compean received a fair trial- as they should have NEVER been charged to begin with, and a fool if you do not think Johnny Sutton is not another suck ass politician, just like yourself, willing to say anything to climb the power ladder.

So, tell us again about how you support the Border Patrol George. Oh, that is right, the Mexican Border Patrol is the one you support, the one that is paid to invade these united States.

Just how profitable is that?

Garrett refrained from asking for an official reprimand, but he and other conservative Republicans took after Young's declaration that the funds in question represented his money. The assembled conservatives then launched into a general attack on earmarked spending.

Mary Jo Kopechne

She would have been sixty-seven in one week; instead, a small, cowardly punk let her drown in his Mommy's car when she was twenty-nine and then left her body there to be found by two fishermen. In fact, he did not even report one thing to the police until after her body was discovered and the police came to him. Just remember this as the fat, bloated, drunkard bastard writes or pushes another bill to become law- just like he is now, and know that the so many filthy people in Massachusetts have been willing to re-elect him, repeatedly since his crime. Further, at one point many across these united States wanted him to be president and many of them are now in one or the other house of the national legislature.

Makes you want to look up those running for the nomination of the Democrat Party today supported in 1980...

Independence Day

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.? That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, ? That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.? Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
  • He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
  • He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
  • He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
  • He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
  • He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
  • He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
  • He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
  • He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
  • He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
  • He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
  • He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
  • He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
  • He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
  • For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
  • For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
  • For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
  • For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
  • For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
  • For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
  • For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
  • For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
  • For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
  • He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
  • He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
  • He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of the Head of a civilized nation.
  • He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
  • He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Chairman slams immigration bill opponents, challenges them to act

AP Hispanic Affairs Writer

The Chairman of the Republican Party on Friday lambasted Democrats and Republicans who helped kill an immigration bill in the Senate and challenged them to come up with a solution beyond "just build a fence along the border."

"The voices of negativity now have a responsibility to come up with an answer," RNC Chairman and U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla. said.

"How will you fix the situation to make peoples' lives better? How will you continue to grow the economy? How will we bring people out of the shadows for our national security and for the sake of being a country that is just?" he demanded.

I have a suggestion Mel, read this and then obey your sworn Oath of Office!

The paragraph below is from the San Francisco Gate:

Video raises concern about firms' H-1B abuses
2 lawmakers urge labor secretary to probe 'blatant disregard for American workers'

Tom Abate, Chronicle Staff Writer
Friday, June 22, 2007

Hoffman sought to turn the video -- created by an H-1B opponent -- to his advantage. He said it proved the need to pass the Senate immigration reform legislation that, among many other things, gives Silicon Valley more H-1B workers while beefing up rules to make sure that U.S. workers are not displaced.

"The anti-fraud provisions in the Senate bill go right to the heart of what this video is about,'' Hoffman said.
This, of course is spin (actually bullshit as it is known in the English language) and some would admire his tenacity in being able to hold a straight face saying such, but I do not, nevertheless, one thing he IS correct about is that is about wetbacks from every nation wanting the jobs that Americans will do. Spend some time reading the want ads, Craiglist, and many other sources for employment for programming jobs to see for yourself, but most of you already know this as you may know many folks in the tech field. However, this is NOT just about tech jobs, Cohen & Grigsby did these united States a favor when they put the video as this is about all jobs here.

I think every employer should be able to hire and fire whomever he chooses and with that said, I also firmly think his first duty is to his local community, then his state, and then his country as, in that order, is where he made his money and if he wants to continue to enjoy the benefits of his community, and particularly this nation that made it possible for him to do so, then Nobleese Oblige is due- not the spittle that most corporations provide today (and the lawyers that help them do so).

It seems Cohen & Grigsby have been scouring the web for articles and comments about themselves, and in perusing my stats once more, I came across this article at the Des Moines Register linked in the title:
Video tells ways to avoid hiring U.S. workers

June 23, 2007

Washington, D.C. — A video that shows members of a law firm advising employers on how they can avoid hiring U.S. workers has sparked a firestorm of Internet criticism and a congressional investigation by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Ia.

The video, seen by thousands of viewers on YouTube, feeds into a churning debate in Washington and across the country over immigration and the role of foreign workers in the U.S. economy.

Grassley says H-1B visas issued to skilled workers brought from overseas are being used to deprive Americans of high-tech jobs and drive down wages.

The visas are supposed to be given only when American workers are not available, but Grassley contends the program is rife with fraud and abuse.
Now, article is a good one, but the following statement had me laughing until my sides hurt:
A public relations consultant for Cohen & Grigsby released a statement that says the firm has a responsibility to ensure that clients are aware of all laws affecting employment of international workers.

"To that point, we stand by the substance of our recent Immigration Law Update Seminar. We regret the choice of words that was used during a small segment of the seminar," said the statement.

"It is unfortunate that these statements have been commandeered and misused, which runs contrary to our intent."

Ramos & Compean

WASHINGTON — Pressure is growing on Capitol Hill to investigate the prosecution of two former Border Patrol agents doing prison time for their on-duty shooting of a Mexican man who was transporting drugs into the United States.
No pardon or amnesty- these men deserve to have the convictions OVERTURNED and full rights restored.

Those who screwed them deserve, in my opinion, the DEATH PENALTY, but seeing how that will not happen, they should receive LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE- especially for Johnny Sutton.

Keep up the calls, letters, faxes and E-mails.

"Our goal is clearly NOT to find a qualified U.S. worker ... our objective is to get this person a green card ... so certainly we are not going to try to find a place where most applicants would be most numerous."

- Lawrence M. Lebowitz - Vice President of Marketing - Cohen & Grigsby
Remember this as corporations scream how there is NO qualified Americans to do the work and then remember the meat-packing plant where the grabbed all of the wetbacks and then 750+ American Citizens showed up to apply for the jobs.

As for Lebowitz and the firm Cohen & Grigsby- both are Anti-American in my opinion- but hey, you make up your own mind...

Ed and Elaine Brown

Ed and Elaine Brown are the current sixty-four (64) year old couple that the feds say live in a fortified compound- at least that is what the ferals are calling it and their PR Machine, the MSM (which did the exact same thing at Ruby Ridge & Waco).

However, I want you to look at this couple:

A real scary couple, aren't they? I do not think so and I doubt you do as well, but the ferals do, but then again, they think anyone is scary who stands up and questions or has the audacity to simply say NO.

For those that do not know who they are, Ed and Elaine Brown are a couple who have been charged with tax evasion. The Browns asked to be shown what law stipulates that they pay taxes, and have stated they WILL pay such, if the law will be shown to them. Nevertheless, this is not what the ferals want- nor can they do. What they want is the Brown's beaten and imprisoned so as to install fear and control over the rest of we citizens.

There are a number of great sites and blogs that detail this travesty and here are a few:
Alex Jones Prison Planet/GCN Network will be live with the Brown's Press Conference tomorrow and Randy Weaver will be there in the capacity of a freelance reporter.

Go spend the time to read up on this and if possible catch the press conference tomorrow live.

Rate Lawyers, Get Sued- Of Course

Attorneys sue site that comes up with ratings on ... lawyers

By Tricia Duryee

Seattle Times technology reporter

A lawsuit filed Thursday against Avvo.com aims directly at the Seattle startup's distinctive feature — a system of rating attorneys across the country on a scale of one to 10.

The plaintiffs, John Henry Browne and Alan Wenokur, are practicing lawyers in Seattle who called the system unfair.

They think their ratings, 5.2 and 6.5, respectively, were uncharacteristic of their experience, industry recognition and professional conduct.

The suit, which is seeking class-action status, was filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle by Steve Berman, a Seattle attorney who has handled high-profile class-action cases and is a partner at Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro.

The defendants named in the suit include Avvo and its chief executive, Mark Britton, former general counsel at Expedia.

Berman said the rating of Browne, a criminal defense attorney in Washington for 35 years, was hurt because Browne had been sanctioned by a state disciplinary authority.
Doing what lawyers do best, hide the truth...


How do you corner a house?

Feds Corner Home Of Convicted Tax Evaders
U.S. Marshals Cut Phone, Power, Internet To N.H. Couple Who Won't Report To Prison

PLAINFIELD, N.H., June 14, 2007

(CBS/AP) Federal authorities have cut phone, power and Internet service at the fortified compound of a couple convicted of tax evasion who have refused to report to prison.

It's unclear what effect that has on Ed and Elaine Brown, who have solar and wind power generators at their 110-acre spread, where they have been holed up for months.

Of course, ask the ferals to do it...


PS - Leave them alone and start looking for real enemies of the Constitution and if you do not know where to begin, I suggest starting in the swamp.

Charge a Fed for Killing an illegal but never charge them for killing uS Citizens

BREAKING NEWS: Corbett hearing postponed until August; prosecutor may turn to grand jury

By Jonathan Clark

Published on Friday, June 15, 2007
BISBEE — Cochise County Attorney Ed Rheinheimer said he may seek a grand jury indictment against Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Corbett after a judge postponed a preliminary hearing Friday meant to determine if Corbett can be charged with murdering an illegal immigrant.

Justice of the Peace David Morales granted the seven-week continuance after defense attorney Sean Chapman complained he had not received a complete set of police statements made by six Mexican nationals who were present when Corbett fatally shot Francisco Javier Dominguez-Rivera near Naco on Jan. 12. Chapman called it "fundamentally unfair" and "outrageous" that the County Attorney’s Office had not fully disclosed the statements.
The ferals do nothing to protect their own when someone is being charged with killing an illegal, but when the assassin Lon Horiuchi was charged with manslaughter, they pulled out all of the stops to make sure the trial would never happen. Certainly tells you what the government of these united States thinks of the Citizenry, and how much it cares for illegals, does it not.

New Blog Link

Darkblog- go spend some time reading.


Tell us again NRA how the deal you just screwed us with won't be abused?

The following is about a former feral who retired from the Secret Service to raise her newborn son- now 19 months of age. When flying to a family reunion from Reagen International, she had some tap water in her boy's "sippy cup" which, any astute reader by now knows is nearly the most horrible thing you could ever do. Nearly I say because most know darn good and well that the most horrible thing a citizen of these united States, even a former feral, can do is spill that water while in the presence of the currently employed uS feral:
"I demanded to speak to a TSA [Transportation Security Administration] supervisor who asked me if the water in the sippy cup was 'nursery water or other bottled water.' I explained that the sippy cup water was filtered tap water. The sippy cup was seized as my son was pointing and crying for his cup. I asked if I could drink the water to get the cup back, and was advised that I would have to leave security and come back through with an empty cup in order to retain the cup. As I was escorted out of security by TSA and a police officer, I unscrewed the cup to drink the water, which accidentally spilled because I was so upset with the situation.

At this point, I was detained against my will by the police officer and threatened to be arrested for endangering other passengers with the spilled 3 to 4 ounces of water. I was ordered to clean the water, so I got on my hands and knees while my son sat in his stroller with no shoes on since they were also screened and I had no time to put them back on his feet. I asked to call back my fiancé, who I could still see from afar, waiting for us to clear security, to watch my son while I was being detained, and the officer threatened to arrest me if I moved. So I yelled past security to get the attention of my fiancé.

I was ordered to apologize for the spilled water, and again threatened with arrest. I was threatened several times with arrest while detained, and while three other police officers were called to the scene of the mother with the 19 month old. A total of four police officers and three TSA officers reported to the scene where I was being held against my will. I was also told that I should not disrespect the officer and could be arrested for this too. I apologized to the officer and she continued to detain me despite me telling her that I would miss my flight. The officer advised me that I should have thought about this before I 'intentionally spilled the water!'"
Really pissed off right now?

You should be, but you are probably asking yourself just what this has to do with the NRA's backdoor brokered deal that even excluded notification to the Repgulicrats and passed on a VOICE VOTE and the answer is? (Bueller, Bueller, Bueller)


Now that I have that, momentarily, off my chest, please continue with your everyday reading.


SMELL (really HELL ) Computers II

Nothing like starting the day out right

Hmm, lets see:

1. Illegal, Eligio Chia-Duran, molests and paralyzes eight month old last Christmas Eve, - lawyers want evidence tossed because of 1963 Vienna Treaty. Judge says no.

2. Panties are in a wad because a newly appointed Kansas City Parks Board member, seventy-three year old Frances Semler, is a member of The Minutemen Project. Rabid anti-Americans demand her ouster. Mayor says no- so far.

3. The Anti-American asswipes in the uS Senate are working towards, again, to give this nation to Mexico, even though nearly all of the nation has said no.

4. Over in the once great Britain, Charles, Prince of Wales, has commissioned a work, entitled the BEAUTIFUL NAMES, glorifying the raghead god allah- and the place it will make it's debut is none other than Westminster Cathedral. Catholics are outraged- and of course ignored.

5. Bush and his minions are thoroughly pissed about a new bill in congress that works towards protecting free speech on the internet- including bloggers. And of course, the Bush line is that the onus of proving that posting would be or are free speech is upon the individual- not the feral government as the constitution stipulates.

Nothing like an acid build-up first thing in the morning, is there...

Mr. Wizard is Dead!

Long Live Mr. Wizard!


PS - I just ended a call to Anonymous about Mr. Wizard's passing, and just before ending the call, he said to me that he was surprised that I did not call when Charles Nelson Reilly died and I told him that I thought it best to quietly mourn his passing. He noted that game shows would never be the same, and I reminded him that they have not been the same since Paul Lynde died...

Hiding the vote

"That's what took place Wednesday when the House, by voice vote, passed a gun control bill that Rep. Dingell, D-Mich., helped broker between the NRA and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y."
CSMK made me aware of the post at AmBack and cannot say that I am surprised at the follow-up post by OldStar as many in this country will react the same or want the same power over others.

A brand spanking new database that will be perfect in conception, design, and of course implementation- HAH! If even one of you doubts for one minute that it will be abused, I point you to this article I read this morning and to give you a quick peek:
FBI Finds It Frequently Overstepped in Collecting Data

An internal FBI audit has found that the bureau potentially violated the law or agency rules more than 1,000 times while collecting data about domestic phone calls, e-mails and financial transactions in recent years, far more than was documented in a Justice Department report in March that ignited bipartisan congressional criticism.
Oh, that is enough to convince you? Then how about this one:
FBI Terror Watch List 'Out of Control'

A terrorist watch list compiled by the FBI has apparently swelled to include more than half a million names.

Privacy and civil liberties advocates say the list is growing uncontrollably, threatening its usefulness in the war on terror.

The bureau says the number of names on its terrorist watch list is classified.

A portion of the FBI's unclassified 2008 budget request posted to the Department of Justice Web site, however, refers to "the entire watch list of 509,000 names," which is utilized by its Foreign Terrorist Tracking Task Force.
Or better yet, how about the comment by becca:
Who cares about the inconvenience. I can barely sleep at night as it is. I am not paranoid by any means....I am a normal 31 year old female in DC and I am glad they even have a list no matter how long it is..... I believe the list just needs to evolve with the times and more man power is needed to do it. Its because of these liberals that believe we are sitting pretty and doin just fine shaking our hands with the enemies that this kind of stuff is getting news. Do you care or dont you that we are sitting ducks?

Posted by: becca | Jun 13, 2007 12:08:57 PM
Well becca, I for one am not about to rely on anyone but myself for protection and the generations raised to think that it is the responsibility of others is a major part in why this nation has fallen to depths of filth & disgust that it has.

If you cannot see exactly what the lists, databases, and records are doing to this nation, what it is founded on, and see how the documents that bind the social contract of these united States, then please, please take the advice of Samuel Adams:

"Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say 'what should be the reward of such sacrifices?' Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!"


Freedom, not climate, is at risk

I agree with Professor Richard Lindzen from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who said: "future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century's developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree, and, on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined into implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age".
President Vaclav Klaus indeed understands intelligence when he reads it.


Your numbers are off Bloomberg & Schwarzenegger

"Together, the mayors pledged to enlist their 250 million constituents in the fight against global warming."

At best, asswipe Bloomberg, your constituency is around 8.2 million, and asswipe Schwarzenegger, your state population is roughly 36½ million. Moreover, what is questionable about these numbers is just how many wetbacks from all the different countries from around the world help bolster those numbers and make them false as well. Neither of you are deserving, IMO, of the positions that your constituencies elected you to, but that does not matter, as I am not one of them, and 87.3 percent of the nation is not as well (New Joke City 8.2 + Commie/Mexi-fornia 36.5 = 44.7 million or 14.9% of US 300 million [article postulated 250 million]. Estimating that 5.5 of the Commie/Mexi-fornia population and 1 million for New Joke City are illegals for a total of 6.5 million [deducting the 14.9% for both city and state] = leaves a combined constituency of roughly 12.7% of US Population.)

Asswipe Bloomberg, you are an unindicted and yet convicted RICO felon for your so called gun stings which were IN FACT straw-man purchases and asswipe Schwarzenegger you are nothing more than a sellout trying to pervert this nation- for both of you, jail is too good, but that is just my opinion.


10 June, 2007


To sign on to the deal, the powerful gun lobby won significant concessions from Democratic negotiators in weeks of painstaking talks. Individuals with minor infractions in their pasts could petition their states to have their names removed from the federal database, and about 83,000 military veterans, put into the system by the Department of Veterans Affairs in 2000 for alleged mental health reasons, would have a chance to clean their records. The federal government would be permanently barred from charging gun buyers or sellers a fee for their background checks. In addition, faulty records such as duplicative names or expunged convictions would have to be scrubbed from the database.
Government databases that could be petitioned by 83,000 vets and who knows how many countless innocent citizens? However, to not sound so negative, I ask you to join with me in laughter at the following line:
This time, Democratic leaders dispatched Dingell and Rep. Rick Boucher (Va.), a pro-gun Democrat who represents Virginia Tech's home town, Blacksburg, to reach a deal. But talks dragged on over issues of constitutionality and questions over how to institute a means to clear names from the system.
Since when did they even give two cents worth of concern about constitutionality? The ferals and the NRA wipes their asses with it daily...

Perhaps more men should Senator Bishop.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Simmering tensions in the Alabama Senate boiled over Thursday when a Republican lawmaker punched a Democratic colleague in the head before they were pulled apart.

Republican Sen. Charles Bishop claimed that Democratic Sen. Lowell Barron called him a "son of a (expletive)."

"I responded to his comment with my right hand," Bishop said.
Hmm, what comes to my mind is the following line from THE SHOOTIST:
"I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people and I expect the same from them."
Senator Bishop, it sounds as if he gravely insulted your mother's honor and thus you were insulted- you responded like a Man, now don't go getting all touchy-feely like most will tell you to and, by all means, stand by your guns sir.

And now ass-wipe two (Barack Obama):
"We can do this," Obama said in a speech in Iowa City at the University of Iowa's medical school. "The climate is far different than it was the last time we tried this in the early nineties."

Mercury-Redstone 3

Some of you may have heard that Wally Schirra died two days ago and he was the only man to fly in the first three uS space programs, Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo- indeed a man of great accomplishments. However, I wonder how many remember that forty-six years ago, today, May 5th, the first manned space flight of a uS rocket, Alan B. Shepard, Jr. occurred. This was not the first manned space flight, that honor went to Yuri Gagarin of the now defunct Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

These were courageous men. Men who should be remembered, praised and honored, but they did not do it alone, and so many unnamed, and forgotten men made those, and many more space flights possible. Today, most ignore and accept manned space flight as routine, and though not ubiquitous- yet, we are getting there and the promise that men like myself thought to be true, just might come to pass. I am posting the lyrics to a song that was written twenty-one years after Mercury-Redstone 3 to honor another great space flight, but I think that they apply just the same.
RUSH - Countdown
Words by Neil Peart, Music by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson
Dedicated with thanks to astronauts Young & Crippen and all the people of NASA for their inspiration and cooperation.

Lit up with anticipation
We arrive at the launching site
The sky is still dark, nearing dawn
On the Florida coastline

Circling choppers slash the night
With roving searchlight beams
This magic day when super-science
Mingles with the bright stuff of dreams

Floodlit in the hazy distance
The star of this unearthly show
Venting vapours, like the breath
Of a sleeping white dragon

Crackling speakers, voices tense
Resume the final count
All systems check, T minus nine
As the sun and the drama start to mount

The air is charged --- a humid, motionless mass
The crowds and the cameras,
The cars full of spectators pass
Excitement so thick --- you could cut it with a knife
Technology --- high, on the leading edge of life

The earth beneath us starts to tremble
With the spreading of a low black cloud
A thunderous roar shakes the air
Like the whole world exploding

Scorching blast of golden fire
As it slowly leaves the ground
Tears away with a mighty force
The air is shattered by the awesome sound

Like a pillar of cloud, the smoke lingers
High in the air
In fascination --- with the eyes of the world
We stare...

Border agent charged with murder

And another one:
By EDUARDO MONTES, Associated Press Writer
Mon Apr 23, 8:29 PM ET

PHOENIX - A Border Patrol agent was charged Monday with first-degree murder in the shooting of an unarmed illegal immigrant at the border in January.
An unarmed illegal immigrant? No Mr. Montes, each one of the Mexicans are illegal aliens.
An investigation found that Agent Nicholas Corbett's killing of Francisco Dominguez-Rivera, of Puebla, Mexico, was not legally justified, said Cochise County prosecutor Ed Rheinheimer.

Corbett is also charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter and negligent homicide. A judge will determine which of the charges the evidence supports best, Rheinheimer said.

"We have concluded that the evidence shows that at the time he was shot, Mr. Dominguez-Rivera presented no threat to agent Corbett," Rheinheimer said.
Excuse me Mr. Rheinheimer, is not the job of a prosecutor to make the decision of what charges to file, or is this really a case of throw as many charges against this man to see which ones stick?
His attorney, Daniel Santander, didn't immediately return a message left Monday afternoon by The Associated Press. The Border Patrol said it would make a statement Tuesday.

The shooting, which drew condemnation from the Mexican government, occurred while Corbett was trying to apprehend Dominguez-Rivera and three others who were trying to enter the country illegally.

In the days after the shooting, the Border Patrol said that a scuffle had led to it and that the agent had "feared for his life."

More than 300 pages of documents later released by prosecutors revealed that Corbett's account didn't match witness testimony or forensic evidence.

Corbett told colleagues he shot at a man who looked like he was going to throw a rock.

But three witnesses who were being apprehended along with Dominguez-Rivera — his two brothers and a sister-in-law — told investigators Corbett fired while pushing Dominguez-Rivera to the ground.

Corbett remains an agent but is not working in the field, said Gus Soto, a patrol spokesman.
Three hundred pages eh? Heck, I thought most government agencies generate that everyday to verify that someone actually showed up just so you can their employment to begin with and it is not like we have seen forensics falsified and faked before now have we? In fact, we have seen men convicted and put on trial at the behest of the Mexican government before.

As I said in the last post, our so-called leaders truly intend to see the Republic cast over and if you care to see what the Border Patrol faces daily, then RIGHT CLICK here (WARNING - 11.4mb AVI) and SAVE AS the file to your system. The video is of a recent attack on Border Patrol agent Arturo Lorenzo, and watch it over a few times, and think again about Agent Corbett...


Michael New - Soldier of these United States

Inside Politics

By Greg Pierce
April 24, 2007

No appeal

The Supreme Court yesterday rejected an appeal by a U.S. soldier who received a bad-conduct discharge after refusing to serve on a United Nations peacekeeping mission in the former Yugoslavia.

Former Army medic Michael New has been fighting his discharge for the past 11 years. Mr. New argued that he was not afforded all his legal rights in the course of the court-martial that stemmed from his refusal to wear the U.N. insignia on his Army uniform.

He was supposed to be among a few hundred soldiers who were sent to Macedonia, a former Yugoslav republic, to guard against the spread of unrest from other areas torn by ethnic turmoil. The justices declined to hear his case without comment, the Associated Press reports.
The lesson to be learned here, our so-called leaders would rather wiper their asses with the Constitution than do right as the goal is the complete over-turning of the Republic.

The Battle of San Jacinto

"We view ourselves on the eve of battle. We are nerved for the contest, and must conquer or perish. It is vain to look for present aid: none is at hand. We must now act or abandon all hope! Rally to the standard, and be no longer the scoff of mercenary tongues! Be men, be free men, that your children may bless their father's name."

April 19th

The following post is nearly (except for last sentence) an exact copy from last year, and if you have not read it, enjoy, if you have, then perhaps you have forgotten- either way, it is worth the read.

This day in American History has had many occasions to recall:
  • In 1933 - The traitor FDR announced he was further working towards destroying the economy by announcing the US will leave the Gold Standard.
  • In 1861 - Riots occurred in Baltimore, Maryland and the illegal union blockade of the Confederate states starts.
  • In 1995 - The Alfred P. Murray Feral Building, in Oklahoma City is nearly destroyed. (That took extra feral demolition teams to finish the job.)
  • In 1939 - After 148 years, Connecticut approves the Bill of Rights.
  • In 1989 - USS Iowa's gun turret explodes killing 47 crewmen.
  • In 1943 - Though, not US history, the Warsaw Ghetto uprising happens and the starving Jews kick some Nazi ass.
  • In 1993 - The might of the united States government sweeps in with the winds and ends their 51-day siege upon a Church, founded and run by it's citizens in Waco, Texas. Seventy-four (74) men, women and children died from gas, gunshot, and fire by feral agents acting in the name of "We the People." These feral agents received NO punishment for the crimes, as "We the People", though filled with righteous indignation, did nothing, even unto this day.
  • In 1775 - Feral agents of the government came to take our arms away and the "Shot heard round the World" was answered by many great men. One in particular needs mentioning, as I am sure if he had been alive in 1993, he would have done the same thing.
His name was Sam Whittemore and:
"There, before the eyes of his astonished family, Sam methodically loaded his musket and both of his famed dueling pistols, put his powder and ball inside his worn and well-traveled military knapsack, strapped his French saber around his waist, squared his grizzled jaw and, as he strode briskly out the door, simply informed his worried family that he was "going to fight the British regulars" and told them to remain safely indoors until he returned.

Whittemore walked to a secluded position behind a stone wall on Mystic Street, near the corner of what is now Chestnut Street in Arlington, and calmly settled in. Some of the Minutemen pleaded with Whittemore to join them in their safer positions, but he ignored their admonitions. Soon the 47th Regiment of Foot, followed by the main body of British troops, appeared in view. On both sides of Whittemore, Minutemen were shooting at the approaching Redcoats and then sprinting away to where they could reload in safety.

Waiting until the regiment was almost upon him, Whittemore stood up, aimed his musket carefully and fired, killing a British soldier. He then fired both dueling pistols, hitting both of his targets, killing one man outright and mortally wounding another. Not having time to reload his cumbersome weapons, he grabbed his French saber and flailed away at the cursing, enraged Redcoats who now surrounded him. Some of those infuriated soldiers were probably less than one quarter of Sam's 80 years; few, if any, were even half his age.

One Englishman fired his Brown Bess almost point-blank into Whittemore's face, the heavy bullet tearing half his cheek away and knocking him flat on his back. Undaunted, Whittemore attempted to rise and continue the fight, but received no less than 13 bayonet wounds from the vengeful Redcoats. They also mercilessly clubbed his bleeding head and drove their musket butts into his body as they ran by.

When the last Britisher had left the scene and was far enough away for them to come out in safety, the villagers who had seen Whittemore's last stand walked slowly toward the body. To their astonishment, he was still alive and conscious--and still full of fight! Ignoring his wounds, he was feebly trying to load his musket for a parting shot at the retreating regiment.

A door was used as a makeshift stretcher and Whittemore was carried to the nearby Cooper Tavern. Doctor Nathaniel Tufts of Medford stripped away Sam's torn, bloody clothing and was aghast at his many gaping bayonet wounds, the other numerous bruises and lacerations, and his horrible facial injury. According to every medical text Tufts had ever studied and all of his years of experience treating injured people, the old man should have bled to death from internal injuries."
That old glorious bastard did not die though, he lived another eighteen (18) years and when asked if he ever regretted his actions, Sam replied:
"No! I would take the same chance again!"
I no longer wonder how many Sam Whittemore's there are today- Monday showed us how many...


17 April, 2007

And one that sums up my attitude at this point.

Perpetual Shorty:
We Are A Nation Of Cowards.


Oh my fucking God.

I cannot express the anger I have right now. Anger at the fact that the blame not only rests on the shooter, but the thousands of "public servants" who have disarmed citizens; created free fire zones in our malls, schools, churches, and restraunts; and conditioned two full generations of Americans to not fight back in the face of danger, but flee.

"Lock yourself in your classroom/ bedroom/ office and wait for the police to arrive."


Postings on the VT Heinous Crime

I found the following postings particularly relevant:

  1. Of Arms and the Law
  2. The War on Guns
    • "My editor at GUNS Magazine is going to bump one of my articles in the queue to make way for "A Very Sound Policy," which focuses on Virginia Tech's weapons prohibition policy and the comments of its spokesman, Larry Hincker. Still, it will be a while before it hits the stands--magazine columns are poor places to discuss breaking news stories, but this one couldn't go ignored."
  3. Publicola
Read each link completely as these men have penned some fine words that make some decidedly cogent points.


Sixty+ Victims

And who is responsible? Of course, the one who pulled the trigger is responsible; nevertheless, there are a number of others who share responsibility.

Guilt is shared by the Virginia House Committee on Militia, Police and Public Safety and their predecessors in the Virginia government along with the governing body of Virginia Tech that worked to create these victims and is displayed in the following:
A bill that would have given college students and employees the right to carry handguns on campus died with nary a shot being fired in the General Assembly.

House Bill 1572 didn't get through the House Committee on Militia, Police and Public Safety. It died Monday in the subcommittee stage, the first of several hurdles bills must overcome before becoming laws.

The bill was proposed by Del. Todd Gilbert, R-Shenandoah County, on behalf of the Virginia Citizens Defense League. Gilbert was unavailable Monday and spokesman Gary Frink would not comment on the bill's defeat other than to say the issue was dead for this General Assembly session.

Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker was happy to hear the bill was defeated. "I'm sure the university community is appreciative of the General Assembly's actions because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus."

Del. Dave Nutter, R-Christiansburg, would not comment Monday because he was not part of the subcommittee that discussed the bill.

Most universities in Virginia require students and employees, other than police, to check their guns with police or campus security upon entering campus. The legislation was designed to prohibit public universities from making "rules or regulations limiting or abridging the ability of a student who possesses a valid concealed handgun permit ... from lawfully carrying a concealed handgun."

The legislation allowed for exceptions for participants in athletic events, storage of guns in residence halls and military training programs.

Last spring a Virginia Tech student was disciplined for bringing a handgun to class, despite having a concealed handgun permit. Some gun owners questioned the university's authority, while the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police came out against the presence of guns on campus.

In June, Tech's governing board approved a violence prevention policy reiterating its ban on students or employees carrying guns and prohibiting visitors from bringing them into campus facilities.
Read it again- particularly Larry Hickner's press statement once more. Have those words sunk in yet? Remember them, as that sentiment is just as evil as the act committed by the nut...

"Sic Semper Tyrannis"

This is a great post penned by Mr. Sharkey two years back and I repost it today:
It was on April 15th, 1865, the hand of Justice pushed the American Lenin into Cocytus' icy grip where all traitors to country go. With the immortal battle cry of all who would strike down the tyrant, "Sic Semper Tyrannis", Abraham Lincoln was struck down.

It was the politics of Lincoln which drove this nation into it bloodiest conflict and set the foundations of the tax you were forced to pay and the other infringement and violations of the Constitution we endure daily from a central Federal Government. Of that Civil War and the politics behind it the historian Jeffrey Hummel wrote in Emancipating Slaves, Enslaving Free Men, "The Civil War represents the simultaneous culmination and repudiation of the American Revolution."

If you should suffer from a terminal case of Lincoln worship, I suggest for an antidote read, The Real Lincoln: A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War by Thomas Dilorenzo. For a taste of what it contains see Walter William's comments on it, "Delorenzo is Right About Lincoln".

In memory of this great day, I flew the Bonnie Blue flag of Secession and the South Carolina flag of Sovereignty and thought how this county might have been had not the American Lenin come to power. Remember, "Sic Semper Tyrannis" and rejoice!!

Ron Paul for President

Platt & Matix Day seems like the proper day for me to mention the only man I consider worth paying attention to, giving money to, and in nineteen months voting for at this start of this latest season of stupidity and hyperbole- Ron Paul.
