On hiding Melson.

By now, everyone knows that Melson "resigned" and has been "re-assigned", and y'all have probably hit all the major blogs and news sites, but this is one that might have been missed- David Hardy's Of Arms & Law.

Some good reading.

Dip your finger and take a taste...

Shade of things to come.

The guy is a former cop from the Katrina days and was one of the few cops who didn't leave his post.

From his series: Patriot Paranoia: Hayden Takes on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Top Ten Conspiracy Theories

I haven't gone through the whole series yet. Interesting and has links. And in some cases, personal eyewitness.
Very good catch by Curtis, and the series starts here.

I, like he have not read all, but will be finishing it as soon as able.

Too Many Inconvenient Truths

Too Many Inconvenient Truths

by Guy Somerset
August 26, 2011

On July 18, 2011, Sean Hoare was found mysteriously deceased by London police. This is notable for two reasons.

The first reason is that Hoare was a primary whistle-blower in the unfolding crisis at News Corporation. The scandal has implicated multitudes in illegal and immoral electronic eavesdropping on everyone from an abducted teenager to Prince William and his brother.

The second and far more ominous reason is because Sean Hoare’s demise was not suspicious in any way. The London police, though already implicated in the scandal for widespread corruption through bribe-taking and callow complicity in shuttering earlier eavesdropping investigations, assure us it is so.

Naturally, only the pitifully paranoid or unsettlingly obsessed would doubt this claim.

At approximately 5:40 PM on Monday, 29 June 2009, Deputy Attorney General of the United States David Ogden landed in "Duke City" -- Albuquerque, New Mexico -- via Southwest Flight #663. Albuquerque was named for the Spanish Viceroy Francisco Fernandez de la Cueva, the Duke of Alburquerque, but somewhere along the line the first "r" in the spelling was dropped. However that may be, it's named after a duke, thus it is known as "Duke City."

So tell us boys, while here, did y'all learn anything about the Constitution & Bill of Rights y'all wipe your asses with daily?

You know, that which you swore and oath to- this one in fact:
I [name] do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
Or, was it merely something of convenience both times?

Snowflakes in Hell asks about the NRA Complicity and wants to bust "myths".

I read the following at NO LAWYERS, ONLY GUNS AND MONEY wherein he points out in the following that:
"Fortunately, Sebastian at Snowflakes In Hell has done an excellent job of examining some of the myths around the passage including those that the NRA and major gun manufacturers were complicit in its passage. He also looks at some of the other myths regarding the enactment of the National Firearms Act of 1934."
So I hit the embedded link to read what was posted and read this:
Were NRA & Manufacturers Complicit in the Gun Control Act of 1968?

A post by Lyle over at View from North Central Idaho got me thinking about a topic I started researching:
"The patent on the M1 carbine was owned by Western Cartridge Co. and David "Carbine" Williams, and still in effect when Penney and Arnold wanted to begin manufacturing M1 carbines in 1958. Penney and Arnold contacted Winchester-Western and offered them a percentage per carbine manufactured, in return for permission to manufacture the M1 carbine. John Olin, owner of Winchester-Western, refused. Olin, Winchester-Western, and more than a few other American manufacturers were opposed to all of the surplus weapons being returned to the United States, where they were being sold at prices the manufacturers couldn’t compete with. This opposition eventually led the manufacturers and the National Rifle Association to support the Gun Control Act of 1968, which, amongst many other things, prohibited the importation of U.S. military surplus."
I’ve tried, at various times, to do some research on the historical arguments surrounding the Gun Control Act and the National Firearms Act, but there’s difficulty without spending some very serious time or buying articles. Dave Hardy is also probably more of an expert on this than I am, given he’s done quite a bit of this kind of research. Generally speaking, I’d want to rely on period accounts rather than modern accounts. Examination of the Congressional Record would also be important. My concern is that there’s a lot of bullshit in this issue, and plenty of people willing to twist the truth to help fit their preferred narrative.
I read the post, hit the links and then went to comments where I found out that you cannot put in hyperlinks as it will be seen as SPAM. OK, his site, his rules, his way of preventing outside sources and controlling the debate. Fine by me, as I will copy and past and link and then I will bring back posts I made in regards to this "debate" and point you to the embedded links in each one of my posts, and say READ THEM ALL!

I checked each link, fixed where needed, switched to the Web Archive versions and added a comment since Haloscan/JSKit/Echo no longer allows me to edit them.

If Snowflakes in Hell is providing new insight regarding the NRA actions, non-actions or complicity in writing the major and not so major Gun Control Laws of the 20th Century that is great! However excluding current NRA activities such as spending 22+ hours on this blog on November 13th, 2006 because of the following VERBATIM post I made on November 10th, 2006 then, I still will be hard pressed to believe let alone think that the NRA is NOT happy to see more gun control laws that SUPPRESS the RIGHTS of the Republic or that the did not gladly assist in writing the 1934NFA, 1968CGA or the utter disdain for over-turning the HUGHES AMENDMENT to the 1986FOPA.
In my recent post, Stalwarts versus NRA, there were several comments made and one in particular by Hammer (see here).

However, to make things easier to follow, here is what Hammer said:
I was reading the December 1945 issue of American Rifleman today.

There was letter expressing concern about some of the M1 carbines having 17.75 inch barrels and therefore being under the NFA 34

The NRA responded with:

What does it matter? The Carbine has no sporting purpose anyway..

This has been one of the main problems with the NRA leadership in my opinion. Giving ground throughout the years because the laws didn't affect affect hunters or target shooters
Hammer | Homepage | 11.10.06 - 7:24 am | #
And I told him:
You scan it and tell me where to download it (or E-mail it to me), and I will give it a permanent spot on the blog and site.
So, first thing this morning, Hammer sent them to me. Now, his scanner is down so he took photos of them (1, 2, 3) and the original images will not fit so I sharpened them and resized them and here, in order below, are the new images and the full size ones can be viewed by clicking on the title beneath the images below.

American Rifleman December 1945

American Rifleman December 1945 Page 32

American Rifleman December 1945 Page 32 Inset

I want to thank Hammer for sending them to me and I want the rest of you to understand that, yes, I am slamming the NRA, but strictly for the attitude I mentioned in the post referenced above as I do stand by my statement and opinion that NRA does deserve to be honored for many things- I just prefer to understand that the NRA is happy with helping to foist un-Constitutional laws downs it 3+ million members throats and has since the beginning...

Heck, I did not even mention the funny money stuff or their ridding the BoD of all but WINNING TEAM type Yes-Folk, but that is another point that most either gloss over, forget, do not know about or intentionally ignore.

I strongly suggest that if a contemporary view from the years of 1934, 1968 and 1986+ of these laws and the NRA's position and views are desired, find the old issues of American Rifleman as the printed word says a lot- almost as much as the NRA's actions in regards to these laws and should also provide leads regarding manufacturers attitudes, desires and wishes (it is not like the Republic does not have a boat load of laws to prevent competition at the behest of manufacturers).

Also, one better look REAL hard at who lead the NRA/ILA to the success of the 1986FOPA- then look at what the NRA did to him.

Oh, and just so everyone knows, in regards to FULL DISCLOSURE, I am a paid in full NRA LIFE MEMBER and have been for years.

Ruby Ridge - Nineteen Years on

On August 21st, 1992, US Marshals shot and murdered a dog and a 14-year old boy named Sammy Weaver. In self-defense, a family friend, Kevin Harris, who was staying with the Weavers, fired in response and killed one of the Marshals at Ruby Ridge, Idaho.

Over twelve days, Randy Weaver, Sammy's Father, was shot in the back while entering the shack, next to their home, to visit his murdered sons body and severely wounded by FBI HRT sniper Lon Horiuchi. The next round fired by this murderer blew Vicki Weavers (Sammy's Mother) head off while she cradled her 10-month baby girl Elisheba in her arms. The round continued on striking and wounding Kevin Harris in the chest.

Many of you reading this may think that the murderer Horiuchi was being fired upon, but you are wrong because the Rules of Engagement (ROE) had been changed to the following:
1. If any adult male is observed with a weapon prior to the announcement, deadly force can and should be employed, if the shot can be taken without endangering any children.
2. If any adult in the compound is observed with a weapon after the surrender announcement is made, and is not attempting to surrender, deadly force can and should be employed to neutralize the individual.
3. If compromised by any animal, particularly the dogs, that animal should be eliminated.
4. Any subjects other than Randall Weaver, Vicki Weaver, Kevin Harris, presenting threats of death or grievous bodily harm, the FBI rules of deadly force are in effect. Deadly force can be utilized to prevent the death or grievous bodily injury to oneself or that of another
Standard FBI deadly force rules are this:
"Agents are not to use deadly force against any person except as necessary in self-defense or the defense of another, when they have reason to believe they or another are in danger of death or grievous bodily harm. Whenever feasible, verbal warning should be given before deadly force is applied."
This license-to-kill was so obviously un-Constitutional and immoral, that members from Denver, Colorado SWAT, (assigned to the siege) agreed amongst themselves that they would NOT follow it. Obviously, the lessons taught by the Nuremberg and My-Lai Trials of "just following orders" were not lost to these men nor were the morals of our once proud Republic.

This started the first of the sieges on US Citizens that were public and subsequent wide spread discovery by the public of just how often the ATF, US Marshals, FBI and other such government funded JBT and their handlers lie.

Here is an example of lies pointed out about Randy Weaver, written by FBI Assistant Director Danny Coulson on August 24th, 1992 in a memo:
OPR 004477
Something to Consider
1. Charge against Weaver is Bull Shit.
2. No one saw Weaver do any shooting.
3. Vicki has no charges against her.
4. Weaver's defense. He ran down the hill to see what dog was barking at. Some guys in camys shot his dog. Started shooting at him. Killed his son. Harris did the shooting [of Degan]. He [Weaver] is in pretty strong legal position."
Understand, this was written DURING the siege of Ruby Ridge- AFTER Vicki Weaver had been murdered.

Since then, we had Lon Horiuchi also murder at Waco, another ATF/FBI war on the citizens of the Republic that wound up burning alive 86 children, women and men after a 51-day siege upon their Church. Horiuchi was there to shoot those trying to flee the flames. For his reward, he was kept out of the spotlight, after the charges of manslaughter were stripped from the State of Idaho, and in 2008 made a spokesman for HS-Precision, a company once held in high esteem by the shooting public for their ultra high-quality stocks though used primarily, it seems, by Jack Booted Thugs (think US government letter agencies) now.

There have been other less well known instances, others with less than such horrible endings as Ruby Ridge and Waco, but there were others directly blamed on these two events. However, the most troubling aspect of Ruby Ridge, beyond the event itself, the immoral murders of Sammy and Vicky, the lies perpetrated upon Randy and his family is the militarization of police forces across the Republic. This was denied for many years, but even Soldier of Fortune, in a full cover of their March 1999 issue had a lengthy article detailing this. Unfortunately, I can no longer find it on SOF's site, even the cover PDF, but did find the complete article at FOX News and you can read it here. From near the end of the article:
Made-For-TV Nightmare

None of the cop/soldier blur is a secret. Rather, it's what a blur is supposed to be confusing. Night-after-night, American TV audiences are treated to real-life cop shows in which SWAT teams, dressed in camouflage or black, break through doors and hold suspects to the floor with the aid of fully automatic weapons in order to confiscate cocaine, marijuana or heroine in varying amounts.

In local newspapers and on local TV, police departments show-off new programs in which Navy SEALS train local officers. Police chiefs and sheriffs brag of acquiring helicopters, armored personnel carriers and airplanes from the federal government's post-Cold War military surplus programs.

One World Wide Web site (www.policeguide.com/swat.htm) features links to 50 colorful home pages of local yokel SWAT teams throughout the United States, in Mayberry settings like Ames, Iowa, and Spartanburg, S.C.

"It's all being done out in the open, and many people don't see it as frightening," says defense lawyer Blewitt. "That's because Americans have been conditioned to think it will only affect criminals. They've been convinced society is being destroyed by crime, even though violent crime has steadily decreased in recent years, and these military-style police are our only hope. What they should worry about is an emerging police state that threatens the very fabric of free society."
On June 1st, 2011 I posted TL IN EXILE - Hardcore in response to TL's just outrage over the murder of Jose Guerena but this was just one more on the march to the Republic's full oppression. So many others may be read about here, there, and just about everywhere- DAILY! It is so horrible, that the parents of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry have been told by the DOJ that they have no standing as victims!

For those that have no clue who murdered Border Patrol Agent Agent Brian Terry is, then get out from under your rock, turn the damn bread-and-circuses crap off and read about the latest ATF/FBI/DEA/CIA Politician controlled program to suppress the rights of the Republic in the next five links.
What I have presented here are facts, facts from some of the events over the past nineteen years of atrocities that have numbed most of the Republic- desensitized them to what is coming and that is a crash on a scale of proportions not seen before. Unlike "Global Warming", this is man-made, and we allowed it to occur.

Since 1913, the legislation and tools have been increased for the Republics destruction and the militarization of police is just one key aspect of it.

Near the top, in the right column of this blog is a set of cross-hairs on a bouncing hour-ball, has been there for a very long time and it is titled: How long before it is YOU?

There are so many things working for our destruction; plans, legislation, sown distrust, and simple ignorance created by a false sense of trust in our supposed leaders. How long indeed is the proper question.

Our Founding Fathers, knew what tyranny is- they left us the tools to keep it at bay, we let those tools rust and squandered their wisdom but I will not forget these words:
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined." Patrick Henry

Forty Years since Nixon's Great Crime

In 2004, 2005, and 2007 I posted about the Nixon ending the Gold Standard.

Tomorrow marks the 40th anniversary of Nixon ending the Gold Standard and since then, especially in the past four years our "leaders" have fully bankrupted us.

Gold in 1971 was priced at the artificial price of $35.00FRN because of the Bretton Woods System and by the end of 1971 it was priced at $44.20FRN- a 38.804% increase. Then, by the end of 1972 an ounce of gold sold for $70.30FRN a jump of just over 100% in sixteen and half (16½) months, peaked at the end of February 1975 at $185.25FRN and was down to $140.25FRN at the end of the year (appreciation to KITCO for making the graphs available). From then until the peak in 1980 until 1999 the pricing stayed relatively flat and if interested, you can see the average price from 1968 until today here (appreciation to the Gold Information Network for having the data available to all).

Now, let us recall that the peak price for gold was January 21st, 1980 at $850.00FRN and that it recently hit a "high price" of $1814.80FRN on the spot market which seems on the surface to be a new record, but it is not.

Thanks to inflation, it will take $2,328.45FRN to beat the old record, in equivalent FRN (1980 $850.00FRN = 2011 $2,328.44). This means that gold is $513.65FRN away from the record or 35.331% away and one third (1/3rd) away which seems like a lot, but even the JPMorgue thinks it very well may hit this price and pass it by the end of this year.

Many think and believe it- I know I do but unfortunately, I am not a wealthy man, nor do I have funds to allocate to it and frankly never have. My Wife and I put food on the table, pay our bills and store what we can and have done so for a number of years but never really had a lot of disposable funds. Some of this was unintended bills, others were our mistakes and will never blame others for OUR choices.

Banksters, corporations, politicians, and parasites do such- we do not. They never risk themselves, always others and the fruits of others labors is what they choose to use via corrupt legislation that become laws- which they pay for to the politicians.

Everyone knows this and most in the united States have their livelihood tied to this and they do not want it to end.

However, it cannot last as there is NO SUCH THING AS PERPETUAL MOTION.

The Republic of these United States is bankrupt and yesterday, the Iowa Straw Poll was won by Michele Bachmann by LESS one percent (1%). A woman who has always worked for government- first as an IRS Agent who put people in jail over taxes and then her husband and she collected a portion of her funds from foster kids.
The Bachmanns were licensed by the state from 1992 to 2000 to handle up to three foster children at a time; the last child arrived in 1998. They began by offering short-term care for girls with eating disorders who were treated through a program at the University of Minnesota, said George Hendrickson, the chief executive of PATH Minnesota, the private agency that handled the placements.

While Mrs. Bachmann may have envisioned herself caring for unwed mothers, as she said in 2006, Mr. Hendrickson, who worked with the couple for four years, said that to his knowledge, none were pregnant.

He said the Bachmann home was "technically considered a treatment home," which offered a higher level of reimbursement. (The current rate is $47 a day, Mr. Hendrickson said.) That designation required a higher standard of care from parents who had the educational and emotional capability to handle "serious mental health issues." Dr. Bachmann's training was an asset.
Now, realize today's $47.00FRN rate was just over $29.00FRN's (once again, using the BLS Inflation Calculator for this) in 1992 or $7830.00FRN for roughly nine months per child (scaled down to nine months for this figure for 1992). Today, that would be $12,597.31 for one kid (not counting the changes in law since then and the increase in monies via other programs for foster children). By 2000 that daily stipend was $43.68 or $11,793.60 for nine months per child. This does not take into account any ancillary business her husband GAINED by word of mouth for his therapy business because of the foster children.

Now, granted, these figures are estimation on my part but I think them valid when looking at this woman and those who tout her as a real conservative and a solution for our bankruptcy and in fact, most, as usual will not look or hear anything but soundbites.

Everyone of the GOP slate, except for one, has recently touted that the Federal Reserve needs auditing and the Thursday "debate" put on by FAUX NEWS was full of laughter due to the responses of those on stage- except for one, Ron Paul.

Across the Web, TV, Radio there are those who are and will continue to do their damndest to see him fail.

Each has a stake in his failure- whether they firmly believe he is wrong or have monied interests in the outcome, the goal is the same- the continuation of our ruin.

Ron Paul entered politics specifically because of Nixon's Great Crime and the only man who is running who has worked his entire career to see it corrected.
While still a medical resident during the 1960s, Paul was influenced by Friedrich Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom, which caused him to read many publications by Ludwig von Mises and Ayn Rand. He came to know economists Hans Sennholz and Murray Rothbard well, and credits to them his interest in the study of economics. He came to believe that what the Austrian school economists wrote was becoming true on August 15, 1971, when President Richard Nixon "closed the gold window" by implementing the U.S. dollar's complete departure from the gold standard. That same day, the young physician decided to enter politics, saying later, "After that day, all money would be political money rather than money of real value. I was astounded."
It is good to see more and more have awakened and are waking up, but they need context and history.

A goodly portion in Iowa did yesterday as Ron Paul nearly came in first- missed it by nine tenths of a one point (9/10ths of 1%) and for those that think this a loss, I will point out that the IRS Agent had roughly twenty percent (20%) of her supporters either cast votes for others or not at all and squandered $35,310.00FRN on poll tickets.

If he had won first place, all of those wanting Ron Paul to fail would have touted that the poll meant nothing, but they cannot now as those very same are touting it as propelling the IRS Agent into the lead.

This was a huge win for Ron Paul, but even more so for Liberty as he has often said, it is not about him, but the ideas of Liberty and Freedom.

Ron Paul started his career forty years ago, has spent those forty years fighting against Nixon's Great Crime and the next sixteen months will be the culmination.

What do you want, those that wish to dictate how you and others live, or a man who started his his career in politics for his and others liberties?
