Blogger no more.

Folks,

The time is here to leave Blogger. The forced migration to the "latest, greatest crap interface" is it for me. Yes, Blogger does do quite a bit for you that you will never have to worry about, but just prefer to host my Blog elsewhere and I really did intended to move it a long time ago anyway so go here.

I would be mighty appreciative if you update your links if you have me on your Blog Roll, delete me if you want, but nearly everyone linked from here will or already has been linked at the WP site (if I missed you shoot me an E-mail).

This site will remain up for the foreseeable future for reference but do believe I have migrated the over eight years worth of posts.

I do thank you for those that have stuck around, those that came for a while and also even the one-time viewers.

Sebelius: Decrease in Human Beings Will Cover Cost of Contraception Mandate

Sebelius: Decrease in Human Beings Will Cover Cost of Contraception Mandate

By Fred Lucas
March 1, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told a House panel Thursday that a reduction in the number of human beings born in the United States will compensate employers and insurers for the cost of complying with the new HHS mandate that will require all health-care plans to cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including those that cause abortions.

"The reduction in the number of pregnancies compensates for the cost of contraception," Sebelius said. She went on to say the estimated cost is "down not up."

AND

"Who pays for it? There's no such thing as a free service," Murphy asked.

Sebelius responded that that is not the case with insurance.

"The reduction in the number of pregnancies compensates for cost of contraception," Sebelius answered.

Murphy expressed surprise by the answer.

"So you are saying, by not having babies born, we are going to save money on health care?" Murphy asked.

Sebelius replied, "Providing contraception is a critical preventive health benefit for women and for their children."

Murphy again sought clarification.

"Not having babies born is a critical benefit. This is absolutely amazing to me. I yield back," he said.

Sebelius responded, "Family planning is a critical health benefit in this country, according to the Institute of Medicine."
Sure Bitch, Agenda 21 is the answer.

CSMK writes on Ruby Ridge

CSMK sent this in and posting it verbatim.

RAID ON RUBY RIDGE

The Randy Weaver story began sometime in 1989. There is no record as to when the ATF decided to target Randy Weaver for an "illegal weapons" sale. We do know that on October 24, 1989, he sold two shotguns, the barrels of which might have been 1/4" under the 18" minimum "legal" length.

The two 12ga. shotguns, one an H&R single shot and the other a Remington pump, were sold to a "good friend" who asked Weaver to shorten the barrels. Weaver did not know the "good friend" was an undercover ATF informant.

For reasons of their own, ATF did nothing for 8 months. Then Weaver was approached by two ATF agents who made him "an offer he couldn't refuse." That offer was to spy on the Aryan Nations or go to jail. Weaver refused to be intimidated. Six months later he was indicted on the weapons charge.

On January 17, 1991, Randy and Vici, his wife, started into town to purchase supplies. They came across a pickup truck with its hood up. The vehicle appeared stalled. A man and a woman flagged Weaver down. As Randy stepped out of his ehicle, ATF agents swarmed out of the camper on the back of the "stalled" pickup. They knocked Vici to the ground and placed a cocked 9mm pistol against Randy's neck.

Weaver was then taken before a federal magistrate for arraignment. It was later learned that the magistrate cited the wrong law in charging Weaver. Weaver was released on bond. He and Vici returned to their cabin, vowing never to have any more dealings with the federal court system.

A hearing was placed on the docket of the Federal Court in Moscow, Idaho. Weaver was notified by letter to appear on march 20, 1991. Unfortunately, the actual hearing date was February 20, 1991. The U.S. Marshall Service believed, at this point, that the case was a bust. But when Weaver failed to appear in March, U.S. Attorney Ron Howen decided to take a chance and go to the grand jury. Weaver was indicted for failure to appear.

Normal procedure would have been to revoke Weaver's bail bond, issue an arrest warrant an pick Weaver up. Instead, the Marshall Service began what they referred to as "Operation Northern Exposure." The operation consisted of teams of marshals hidden around the cabin, jet reconnaissance over flights for aerial photo analysis by the Defense mapping Agency and high revolution video which was used to gather 160 hours of film. This surveillance went on for sixteen months at a cost of $13,000 a week.

Finally, the Marshal Service brought in U.S. Marshal William Degan to
"plan a successful conclusion of the job."

Degan, a member of the Special Operations Group, was leading the assault on August 21, 1992. The marshals were dressed in camouflage uniforms and face masks. They were armed with semi-automatic pistols and M16s. Degan carried a suppressed MS5 light machine gun.

Knowing that the Weaver's owned dogs, the marshals tossed some rocks toward the cabin. Striker, Sammy Weaver's golden retriever, barked and went to the noise. Sammy and Kevin Harris thought Striker had jumper a deer. They picked up their rifles and followed to dog.

Suddenly a marshal fired a burst and killed Striker. Sammy fired toward the agent. Randy heard the gun fire and yelled at Sammy to return to the cabin. Sammy answer "I'm coming ,Dad." He turned and started running toward the cabin when Degan cut him down with a burst from his machine gun. One bullet hit Sammy in the arm, a second hit the boy in the back, killing him instantly. Kevin Harris, using a bolt
action Remington 721, shot William Degan in the chest. Degan died almost instantly.

Randy, Vici and their daughters were still at the cabin. Keep in mind that Harris' shot killing Degan was the last shot fired by anyone not a federal agent.

Later that day, under the cover of darkness, Harris and Randy went out and recovered Sammy's body. They placed it in the out-building adjacent to the cabin. They then washed the body, then returned to the cabin.

At this point, any honorable intentions the government may have had were abandoned. With a boy and a marshal dead, the government spinmeisters went into high gear. The feds spent the next 16 months, from the beginning of the siege until the Weaver/Harris trial in Federal court painting Randy as a racist (white supremacist vs. a separatist), an anti-semitic and a criminal. They magically transformed his 2x4 and plywood shack into a "mountain fortress" then a bunker and finally a
"stronghold protected by a cache of 15 weapons and ammunition capable of piercing armored personnel carriers." As a matter of fact, none of Weaver's firearms are on the list of banned "assault weapons" in the Crime Control Act of 1994.

The marshals told the press that Harris fired first and that he had kept them pinned down with one bolt action rifle against full-auto M16s and MS5 light machine guns.

Degan's death triggered a call that brought in reinforcements. Soon Weaver's cabin was surrounded by FBI, ATF, U.S. marshals, Idaho State and local police plus National Guard troops.

Richard Rogers was in command of the contingent of the FBI Hostage Rescue Team2 which were deployed as snipers around the cabin. Rogers, while in flight to Ruby Ridge, rewrote the "Rules for Engagement." Normally, federal law enforcement personnel may fire only when facing death or grievous harm. This is generally taken to mean they will return fire but not initiate it. Rogers new orders were literally a death warrant for the adults, both male and female.

The new rules read:

"If any adult in the compound is observed with a weapon after the surrender announcement is made, deadly force can and should be employed to neutralize the individual."

The new rules further stated "If any 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 the children."

Gene Glenn, the FBI agent in overall command, told the New york Times that Weaver was holding the children hostage. This is the same ploy the Feds later used at Waco.

The Feds still did not have any negotiators present nor had any attempt be made to contact the Weavers when Randy, Sara, his oldest daughter and Kevin harris left the cabin to go to the shed were Sammy's body lay.

The FBI sniper, Lon Horiuchi, would later testify in court that he "could hit within a ¬" of a mark at 200" yards. But on this date his shooting was no were near that good. Horiuchi placed the scope cross hairs on Randy Weaver's spine just below the where the neck and shoulders joined. The bullet missed its mark and hit him in the arm instead. When asked in court did he intend to kill Weaver, Horiuchi
answered "Yes, sir."

Sara jumped between her father and Horiuchi. She later told Jess Walters, a reporter for the 'Spokesman Review', "If they were going to shoot someone, I was going to make them shoot a kid."

Sara continued to shield her father and pushed him back to the cabin with Harris following. Sara and Randy moved past Vici who was standing in the cabin doorway. As Harris moved by Vici, who was holding their 10 month old daughter, Horiuchi fired again, striking Vici in the head. Bone fragments from her skull struck Kevin Harris, critically wounding him.

Later, the FBI made several contradictory statements. In an internal report, the FBI indicated that Vici was indeed the intended target. This seems to be verified by the claim made by Bo Gritz, a former Viet Nam war hero called in to negotiate at Weaver's insistence. Gritz stated that he had seen a FBI profile which instructed the agents "to take Vici Weaver out if the opportunity arose." They told the press
that they did not know Horiuchi had killed Vici Weaver, but they also told a 'New York Times' stringer they were "using a listening device that allowed them to hear conversations, and even heard the baby's cries in the cabin."

Jess Walter's story of his interview with Sara Weaver continued "Elisheba cried all night. She was saying 'Mama, mama, mama.' Dad was crying and saying 'I know baby. Your momma's gone."

And like Waco, the FBI began a pyops operation; that is psychological warfare. "They come out late at night and say, 'Come out and talk to us, Mrs. Weaver,' or 'Good morning, Randall. How'd you sleep? We're having pancakes. What are you having?"

After word of Vici's death got out to the media, the Feds claimed she was killed "in an exchange of gunfire." But the only gunfire had been the two shots fire by agent Horiuchi.

Kevin harris' condition continued to worsen, and on August 30, 1992 he surrendered. The following day Randy Weaver walked out of the cabin and gave up.

The federal agencies continued to vilify Weaver and Harris to the press. They apparently believed if they could convict Weaver in the press, they could convict him in court.

Gerry Spence, the lawyer for both Harris and Weaver, did not put on any defense. Instead, he merely cross examined the federal agents. The half-truths and out-right lies told under oath convinced the jury to find Weaver guilty of only one charge, failure to appear in court on the very same weapons charge they found him not guilty of committing. Harris also was found not guilty. Rather, the jury found that the Weaver/Harris' had acted in self defense.

To this very day, the AFT and FBI continue to lie to the news media and the public over their actions at Ruby Ridge. This can not be tolerated for any reason.

1 A shotgun barrel under 18" is not illegal. Under the National Firearms Act of 1934, it does require the firearm be registered with the ATF and a fee be paid. The Supreme Court case of the U.S. vs Staples in 1939 was over non-payment of the fee, not the legality of "sawed-off" shotguns.

2 The FBI Hostage Rescue Teams were under Larry Pott's supervision at Ruby Ridge. Agent Richard Rogers was AIC during the siege, but this does not mitigate Pott's responsibility, especially since he used the same tactics during the Waco Invasion.

Ruby Ridge - Twenty Years

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
I firmly think, unfortunately, it is nearly time that atrocities such as these, and others will be happening once again. And if you do not believe or think so, then read yesterdays post.

U.S. Marine Arrested for Facebook Posts

U.S. Marine Arrested for Facebook Posts

Feds retaliate against another critic of the U.S. government.

SALEM / RICHMOND) - A decorated U.S. Marine who served his nation in two wars, Brandon Raub, of Richmond Virginia, was arrested for airing his critical views of the U.S. government on Facebook this weekend. We just reported yesterday that a Human Rights activist in Bahrain is being prosecuted for six Twitter messages. Politically, this country is increasingly resembling Bahrain and other nations that arrest those who speak out critically over federal policy.

His mother, Kathleen Thomas, says it is another case of the word 'terrorist' being applied to arrest and detain a citizen. You can hear the pride she feels for her son when she explains what he has been through, and by all counts Ms. Thomas makes her points loud and clear.

The law enforcement officials rolled up to the man's home around 7:00 last night. "He was there, the FBI, Secret Service and Chesterfield Police showed up in a storm," she said.

Thomas says her son was questioned about why he was writing certain comments, "He basically said 'I have some disagreements with the government and share this', and they said, 'You have to go with us'".

"He was handcuffed, not read his rights, put into a Chesterfield Police Department vehicle and taken to John Randolph Psychiatric Hospital in Hopewell, Virginia," Thomas said.

Agent Sherry Grainger with the Federal Bureau of Investigation called Kathleen Thomas, who described the conversation.

She said, "I am with the FBI" and "We have taken your son. He has been arrested by the Chesterfield County Police Dept because he assaulted an officer and resisted arrest. He has been arrested and taken to the Chesterfield Police Department."
Why did the feds require the locals to arrest him?

Why did they arrest him?

Why did the local PD loose information on his arrest?

Why was he sent for examination in a mental institution?

You know why- those in positions of power, our elected officials and their bureaucratic JBT's (Jackboot Thugs) are very nervous and have decided to send a message and the message is Brandon Raub.

If you have spent anytime reading his Facebook postings, his notes and even his pictures you will note that these postings are just like MILLIONS of other Citizens posting all across the Republic.

Brandon Raub refused to be silenced, I won't and neither should you.

Go sign the petition, call that PD and demand to know what has happened to this young man. If you don't, the next will be your neighbor, friend, son or even yourself.

"We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately." --Benjamin Franklin at the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

In the past seven days, we have witnessed CRIMINAL and CIVIL CONTEMPT CHARGES on the Attorney General of these United States, Eric Holder, Jr. by the Congress of these United States- but yet he remains free, playing at Disney World, instead of behind bars while BP Agent Brian Terry, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata, an estimated (quite low IMO) 300 Mexican Citizens, along with an fully unknown body count of American Citizens which have been killed or murdered by those Mexicans wielding weapons ILLEGALLY sold to them at the behest of the FERAL GOVERNMENT of these United States- and specifically the Attorney General of these United States, Eric Holder, Jr.(and IMO Hilary Clinton and the Muslim Kenyan).

In the past seven days, we have witnessed the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of these United States re-write a law, brought before the High Court, one WHOLLY un-CONSTITUTIONAL, that DICTATES that the feral government can force the citizenry to purchase a product, to "seemingly" make it Constitutional under a completely different avenue than the four requested arguments that the plaintiffs were instructed to argue. The traitor, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, who was nearly completely unknown as an epileptic to we mere citizens before this, said it is actually a TAX, when "those" who penned it, stated it was not as well as the feral lawyers who argued it before the Supreme Court of these United States said it was NOT. So now, the feral government of these United States NOW has the power to TAX you for something you REFUSE to purchase. Of course, after declaring such a monstrosity, where did the traitor, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts go? No, NOT Disney World, but to the "impregnable island fortress" of Malta.

As children, we Americans were instructed that NO ONE is above the law. That the three branches of our Republic- the Legislative, the Executive and the Judicial all are there to protect our Constitution and our liberties, swearing OATHS to do such. Moreover, daily we are told how sacred it we mere citizens OBEY the law of the land and if we have grievances, that our Constitution provides us the avenues to address the inequities and follies of the mistakes of our fellow citizens and elected officials.

No, we do not. At every turn, whether a good and prudent law is passed, it is overturned- no matter what "we the people" desire, need or require. The most recent example is Arizona's Immigration Law which had the Supreme Court of these United States overturn all of it except the requirement for papers. So the Executive branch then, with malice aforethought stripped ONLY Arizona of it's ability to be a part of the program that uses such and created a toll-free number and an E-mail address specifically aimed at Arizona. Moreover, this was AFTER granting back-door amnesty!

Our government has been and is now BOUGHT by large corporations- left and right. I could provide link, after link, after link, after link, after link but I do not have to- you see it daily and know the truth. From oil, pharmacology, prisons, and military. You are nothing and MUST accept the fascist state of CORPORATISM!

I say NO!

There are four boxes to our Republic and each is a true and proper avenue to obtain and re-gain our suppressed liberties, but each one can fail and the first three have been useless since 1913 and the last was tried from 1861-1865 and think days such as those coming upon us once more.

For those that do not know what the four boxes are, I present them in order and yes, most reading this have used the first three- over and over so often that all colors have drained from the use.









The last box is one that all should dread opening, but there are those who just have pushed and keep pushing because they firmly believe it is their due to dictate how others live and that Man should be in chains.

Americans are fed up- we are tired of the lies, the cheating, the murders and killings of us. It is only going to get worse. It has to stop and you have to chose to say no more.

A man I respect is wont to say: "I for one look forward to the coming pandemonium- debts will be paid."

I understand fully his meaning, do you?

Homeland Security Report Lists ‘Liberty Lovers’ As Terrorists

Homeland Security Report Lists 'Liberty Lovers' As Terrorists

Americans who are "suspicious of centralized federal authority, reverent of individual liberty" deemed domestic threat

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
Tuesday, July 3, 2012

A new study funded by the Department of Homeland Security characterizes Americans who are "suspicious of centralized federal authority," and "reverent of individual liberty" as "extreme right-wing" terrorists.

Entitled Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970-2008 (PDF), the study was produced by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland. The organization was launched with the aid of DHS funding to the tune of $12 million dollars.

While largely omitting Islamic terrorism - the report fails completely to mention the 1993 World Trade Center bombing – the study focuses on Americans who hold beliefs shared by the vast majority of conservatives and libertarians and puts them in the context of radical extremism.

The report takes its definitions from a 2011 study entitled Profiles of Perpetrators of Terrorism, produced by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism, in which the following characteristics are used to identify terrorists.

- Americans who believe their "way of life" is under attack;

- Americans who are "fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation)";

- People who consider themselves "anti-global" (presumably those who are wary of the loss of American sovereignty);

- Americans who are "suspicious of centralized federal authority";

- Americans who are "reverent of individual liberty";

- People who "believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty."
Happy Independence Day.

I first posted this on Independence Day, 2004

I found this a couple of months ago:



And it made me think of just how far most people in this country have let slip their desire for freedom and liberty- so much so, that I remembered this:



Then, two days ago, my compadre No-Neck sent this to me:



I knew this would be true and I thought long and hard about these men:



The men, whose history is unknown by so many- and cared for by even less, gave us our start on this path and that so many of the men of their day were willing to do this:



Understand, they were traitors to their government, they conspired to commit acts that would bring certain death down upon them and their families, and I must ask, how many are willing, today, to risk the same?

Vin Suprynowicz has a column that has been around the net since he first wrote it in 1997, and it is well worth reading and then contemplating, particularly in light of recent laws, regulations and SCOTUS announcements.

Happy Independence Day!

Since then, as everyone knows, it has only become worse. Day in and out, it has not stopped, the thieving, raping, and killing of These united States peoples- by what is best explained in the following quote from the movie THE PATRIOT by Mel Gibson's character:
"Why should I trade one tyrant 3000 miles away for 3000 tyrants one mile away? An elected legislature can trample a man's rights as easily as a king can."
Which EVERY legislature, FEDERAL, State and Local has done and for so many this state of affairs is becoming intolerable. Quite frankly, simply reading the Declaration of Independence is an exercise in pure anger today.

This document, something fully never said to the World before is utterly amazing and to this day frightens people. About eight or nine years ago, I had a telephone conversation with a friend from High School. He started in about how overwhelming the federal government "was" becoming and I let him talk for a goodly bit and then told him I wanted to read him something that listed quite a number of crimes the government was committing and he agreed. I went through around a fifteen items and said there were a dozen more Facts. When I finished, his voice lowered and he said, "If you publish this, they will kill you." I then told him that this was not my work and that the government had indeed killed some of the men who had signed and published it. He was not surprised and asked when it was and I told him, July 4th, 1776. There was a very long pause as what I had just told him sunk in.

Yes, I had paraphrased in modern English the Facts set forth in the Declaration of Independence and used examples that were recent in our history with each one- which is not hard to do.

And this is the problem, it is not hard to do.

I no longer think that the first three of the four boxes will solve anything in the state our fallen Republic is in and see the opening of the last box as the outcome- not on the horizon, but very close to shore and is not something that is truly wanted, just something that is utterly obvious.

Enjoy Independence Day with your family and friends, as always, we never know when our last will be so live today with every ounce of liberty our Founding Fathers wanted and bequeathed us, as it is up to us to keep- even though most are happy to piss theirs away.

I think I am going to put some lead downrange.

Declaration of Independence

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.

Kerodin points the question asked by - "TL: Are you ready for Thursday?"

"TL: Are you ready for Thursday?"

TL asks bluntly: Where do we jump off? I suppose as long as life is tolerable we will continue along, waiting for that moment, which I hold has come and gone, easily managed by the politicians of the day.

Curtis observes: Deja vu...

One of the discussions front and center again over at CA's place is the Moral High Ground. This goes to Curtis' point - that topic has come around at least 4 times in my 2 years online. Many of the same people weigh in, many of the same arguments, one or two people change or nuance their position, and we are all 2 years older while OpFor is 2 more years along with their plan.

Bill posted today about the fact that the war is well underway. For those critics of mine that will state the contrary in regards to already being at war… strap on your heater and walk down town and wait for it. You can't defeat that logic so don't even try, at least not with me.
Most think of the SCOTUS ruling and I say that does not mean a damn thing. The Holder CONTEMPT vote weighs much more heavily on my mind. The Muslim Kenyan's actions yesterday with regards to Arizona speaks volumes!

There is no longer any pretense that we live in a Republic- despite the Republicrats push of Mitt Romney and the November "elections"- this is nothing but theater.

TL also stated this:
I am growing tired of empty gestures and hollow words. This is one reason I have not been posting as often of late. I have my own battles with the powers that be that are non-stop. I do what I can to strike back at the beast in ways that inconvenience them, that take up their time, that runs them about and it all still seems useless. Every day I near the point where writing stops and I concentrate on my own agenda.
It has been the same for me and I am sure many others. Blogs have gone quiet and blogs have gone down.

They know it is coming.

Executive Privilege over Gunwalker (Fast and Furious) Documents

Issa pushes ahead with Holder contempt vote despite Obama intervention

Published June 20, 2012
FoxNews.com

Rep. Darrell Issa said Wednesday that he is pressing ahead with a committee vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, despite an 11th-hour move by President Obama to exert executive privilege over the Fast and Furious documents at the heart of the dispute.

The announcement immediately touched off a caustic debate on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, as Democrats accused Issa of prosecuting a "political witch hunt" and Republicans stepped up their criticism of Holder's "stonewalling" over the Fast and Furious probe. Even for Washington, the tone at the hearing was decidedly bitter and accusatory.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee was first informed of the president's decision to exert executive privilege in a letter Wednesday morning, shortly before the contempt vote was scheduled.

Jefferson Davis (1808 - 1889)


Jefferson Davis was born June 3, 1808, in that portion of Christian county, Kentucky, which was afterwards set off as Todd county. His grandfather was a colonist from Wales, living in Virginia and Maryland, and rendering important public service to those southern colonies. His father, Samuel Emory Davis, and his uncles, were all Revolutionary soldiers in 1776. Samuel Davis served during the Revolution partly with Georgia cavalry and was also in the siege of Savannah as an officer in the infantry. He is described as a young officer of gentle and engaging address, as well as remarkable daring in battle. Three brothers of Jefferson Davis, all older than himself, fought in the war of 1812, two of them serving directly with Andrew Jackson, and gaining from that great soldier special mention of their gallantry in the battle of New Orleans.

Celia Alchemy Savage - Why did they arrest her?

'I love mass destruction': Meet the glamorous gun-toting college student arrested on explosives, firearms and drugs charges

By Lydia Warren
PUBLISHED: 09:18 EST, 1 June 2012 | UPDATED: 11:00 EST, 1 June 2012

A college student has been arrested after federal agents swooped on her rural home and allegedly unearthed a cache of illegal weapons, explosives, firearms and drugs.

But when officers confronted Celia Alchemy Savage about the stash at her Cornelia, Georgia home, she reportedly had no remorse, simply stating: 'It's my hobby to blow things up.'

Savage seems to enjoy something of a double life, with photographs on social networking sites showing her toting guns, riding motorcycles, skydiving - and posing provocatively for the camera.

In other photographs on Facebook, the Gainesville State College student dons boxing gloves - before switching to her barely-there bikini to become a ring girl.

The profile page also admits to her love of blowing things up - and her loathing of the law.

'I despise all law enforcement and any governing authority,' she writes. 'I am not one for selective targeting but mass destruction.'

The weapons were discovered after an army of law enforcement officers - from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the FBI, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and local law enforcement officers - searched Savage's home in the woods.

Authorities discovered two pipe bombs, a selection of firearms - including a Taurus .454 calibre revolver - suspected illegal drugs - including meth and pot - and drug paraphernalia.

Savage allegedly told an FBI agent she has made up to seven pipe bombs as 'manufacturing explosive devices and detonating them for recreation was her hobby', an ATF report noted.

She added that she likes to blow up toilets in the woods, as a video uploaded to YouTube shows. Her father Tommy confirmed she appeared in the video, Channel 2 reported.

Documents also allege that Savage used the pot the day before the search and used the meth two months earlier.

But her father said Savage should not have been arrested for her collection of dangerous weapons and explosives, and insisted her destructive attitude is healthy.

CPD Hacked

It was with laughter that I read the following:
Thursday, May 17, 2012
Hacked
We've been informed about "virus warning" type windows popping up on the Department computers lately. We're told it occurs dozens of times during the processing of a simple arrest.

Guess what happened? And guess who predicted it?
NATO protestors have infiltrated the CPD computers with a worm that is wreaking havoc across the board. 35th Street and OEMC are in a full panic. The entire Department Intranet is in danger of a meltdown on an unimaginable scale, just in time for a potential "mass arrest" situation this weekend that would bring the Department to a grinding halt. (from our e-mail)

Did you see that latest AdMin Fax that told everyone to change their passwords if they haven't been altered in a few years and that efforts were underway to have passwords changed every 90 days? That gaping security risk, pointed out by SCC readers almost a year ago, is coming home to roost. Good thing CPD trimmed the in-house I.T. people and never spent the money/effort on a decent internet security protocol.

This is going to cost big time. And be careful with those detachable drives - you might bring home presents for your own personal computer by accident.
I laughed even harder at this comment by Edison Park:
This is probably just the beginning. Chicago is an alpha city, the CPD is a huge and critical institution and there's no question the eShitheads will target us. Completely gutting our capacity for a real time IT emergency response will absolutely, positively, most certainly lead to a data catastrophe.

How would you like it if they get into the network and rustle up all the personnel info? Wouldn't it be 'thrilling' if the complete employee dossier of every CPD officer were posted to the internet, name, address, family info and all?
Why the utter fear that their fellow Chicagoans could know full well who amongst them are "Peace Officers"?

Go spend some time here before CATO screws it up and visit their archives and then spend some time here and read the writings of a former CPD Peace Officer and you will understand why they fear.

Just realize that cities ("alpha" or otherwise) have these types of problems and that is why "Peace Officers", more commonly called LEO's (Law Enforcement Officers) fear the citizenry- they know we know so many of them are the real thuggish criminals.

Escape and DHS

From Ol' Remus:
It was known to looters as the "miracle mile", actually three miles of four-lane highway west of the city, jammed with vehicular junk, parallel lines of rust and glitter and human ruins. The horror and stench deterred looting at first, afterwards the difficulty and danger of travel, finally the diminished numbers of able foragers. Rumors of how it came to be were forgotten in successive waves of catastrophes. From time to time wandering refugees came upon it, took all they could carry and moved on. Thousands of vehicles made good pickings even after all this time. Nobody stayed. Even by the standards that had become normal, this place was an unspeakable horror. What really happened was even worse.

When the collapse happened, it happened with astonishing speed. All wealth in digital form disappeared in less than an hour: bonds, checking accounts, investments, credit, debt, savings—everything. The economy immediately contracted to cash-and-carry with a side of barter. There were "addresses to the nation" and summit meetings and announcements, with draconian and contradictory decrees from DC, state capitals, mayors and even sheriffs. Everybody was in charge and nobody was in charge. The permanent government soon revealed itself for the madhouse it had been all along. Federal and state agencies were arresting each other, expanding, disbanding, merging and going rogue. Coup de 'tats and alliances and insurrections were reported and denounced and denied by turns until the tangled narrative became incomprehensible and, finally, irrelevant. Aside from the hobbyist preachers, the rumor mill took over short wave radio. Travelers from any distance were questioned closely. Only what they had seen with their own eyes was credited.
I was told of this last night and did not get a chance to read it until this morning, right after I viewed this pic in my E-mail sent from Tennessee.

Yes, The Re-Education Camp Manual Does Apply Domestically to U.S. Citizens

Yes, The Re-Education Camp Manual Does Apply Domestically to U.S. Citizens

The time for denial is over

RELATED: Leaked U.S. Army Document Outlines Plan For Re-Education Camps In America

A shocking U.S. Army manual that describes how political activists in prison camps will be indoctrinated by specially assigned psychological operations officers contains numerous clear references to the fact that the policies do apply domestically to U.S. citizens.

Despite the fact that the manual is well over 300 pages long and would take hours to read properly, within minutes of posting our story yesterday a minority of commenters were claiming that the policies outlined in the document only pertained to foreign combat operations and did not apply domestically to U.S. citizens.

This is similar to the denial witnessed prior to the passage of the NDAA when some argued that the indefinite detention provisions did not apply to American citizens despite numerous legal analysts asserting they did and President Barack Obama himself acknowledging they did when he signed the bill.

Click here to read the full document entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations.
Does anyone actually think that this is the first one? More than likely just one of the latest updated versions, but go and grab it and read all 326 pages (if the link above does not work, use this one) and spread it far and wide.

Oh and the boys in camouflage- just remember the supposed wise words of Isoroku Yamamoto:
"You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass."
There are other quotes at the link, but this one is spot on:
"A military man can scarcely pride himself on having 'smitten a sleeping enemy'; it is more a matter of shame, simply, for the one smitten. I would rather you made your appraisal after seeing what the enemy does, since it is certain that, angered and outraged, he will soon launch a determined counterattack."

New Mexico Cancels MOST CHL Reciprocity Agreements.

According to the Texas State Rifle Association, here is the reason:

"This stems from a new and different interpretation by NM DPS of that state's reciprocity law, which requires other states' concealed carry statutes to be as stringent as, or substantially similar to, New Mexico law."

The only thing I can think of is that there must be a new anti-gunner as of the head of the NM DPS- or one playing politics.

  • 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!"

Big Sis Launches Undercover TSA Spies To Ride Houston Buses

Feds to watch for suspicious activity, pre-crime criminal behavior

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Tuesday, April 17, 2012

A new program in Houston will place undercover TSA agents and police officers on buses whose job it will be to perform bag searches, watch for "suspicious activity" and interrogate passengers in order to 'curb crime and terrorism'.

Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee unveiled the program, labeled Bus Safe, during a press conference on Friday. According to a Metropolitan Transit Authority of Houston (METRO) press release, agencies involved in the scheme will, "ride buses, perform random bag checks, and conduct K-9 sweeps, as well as place uniformed and plainclothes officers at Transit Centers and rail platforms to detect, prevent and address latent criminal activity or behavior."

"While local law enforcement agencies focus on overall safety measures noted above, representatives with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will also be on hand, lending their counter-terrorism expertise and support during the exercise," states the press release.

"If you think you're going to be a bad actor on buses, get ready. You are going to have a short-lived time frame," Jackson Lee said during the press conference. The Congresswoman is a staunch advocate of the TSA, having recently chastised the passage of a new law that allows airports to evict TSA agents and replace them with private screeners by claiming it would lead to a new 9/11-style attack.

"Sic Semper Tyrannis"

This is a great post penned by the Great Mr. Sharkey seven years ago 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!!
