MoveOn Protests to Demand Release of Unredacted Grand Jury Data

If you wish to know what the radical left is really up to, there’s no need to wonder. All one has to do is sign up for the MoveOn.org newsfeed to be sent to the email address of your choosing.

For example, yesterday came an email alert of utmost importance. Of course every “alert” MoveOn sends is of the utmost importance.

In part it read:

“Dear MoveOn member,

Last night, Donald Trump’s hand-picked attorney general, William Barr, missed the deadline set by Congress to release the full Mueller report.

That’s why tomorrow, Thursday, April 4—at nearly 300 events around the country—the Nobody Is Above the Law coalition is joining together to demand that Barr immediately release the full report and supporting evidence.”

Well, let’s begin with the obvious. Of course, Barr was hand-picked by the president. Who else would pick him? Chuck Schumer?

However, to many of the nimrods at MoveOn, this may come as a surprise, as most are unaware of the Constitution and even fewer, aware of its content.

The Attorney General is a superior officer of the United States – a Cabinet position, and as such, in accordance with Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the Constitution, shall be appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate. In other words – hand-picked.

And second, and more importantly, is the demand of the left to set an arbitrary deadline for release of the unredacted Mueller report and all accompanying documents including all Grand Jury testimony and documentation.

Attorney General Barr was obligated to remind Nadler and his flunkies that, “the report subject to the federal rules on grand juries ‘by law cannot be made public.’”

Barr added, “he expects to deliver a version of the nearly 400-page report to lawmakers by mid-April, ‘if not sooner.’ He said the material being redacted includes grand jury-related information, as well as information that could reveal U.S. sources and methods or confidential details about ongoing investigations.”

Democrats then cited Watergate as an example where just such unredacted material was released on the order of a federal district judge in 1974.

What the Dems purposely failed to reveal is that this is hardly an apples to apples comparison. The Grand Jury data released during Watergate was to a convened Impeachment Panel, not just to a bunch of democDemocrats fishing expedition.

And not to be outdone, Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell of California, ramped up the idiocy by offering his own reasoning for the release of raw sensitive material. His reasoning was simple – well, the American people paid for the report, so they should be able to see it. Brilliant!

Still, none of this matters to the hard left, who have been so obsessed with running Trump out of office, that they’ll do anything to accomplish it. Rules, law, precedent – none of it matters to the long-tormented hard-liners.

So today, we all get to look forward to leftist protests, because that’s what they’re good at – to “nearly 300 events around the country—the Nobody Is Above the Law coalition is joining together to demand that Barr immediately release the full report and supporting evidence.”

And I’m sure, brought to us in part by Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, etc., etc. All of whom have proven to thus far be “Above the Law.”

Mayor Pete Buttigieg Runs For President While His City Bleeds… Literally

On March 31, a South Bend grandma brought her grandson to the hospital. The 11-month-old baby boy had been shot. His grandmother’s car had also taken fire. It was another early morning in South Bend.

Around the same time, Mayor Buttigieg, was toting up the $7 million in donations from his charm offensive as his bid for the 2020 Democrat nomination got underway. The national media never bothered reporting the shooting of an 11-year-old boy in the city he was supposed to be running, but instead confined its coverage of South Bend matters to a publicity stunt wedding officiated by Buttigieg.

The horrifying shooting of an 11-month-old boy on the millennial mayor’s watch was not an unusual incident. In the last few days, even the media was gushing over Buttigieg’s presidential ambitions, two Indiana University South Bend players were injured in a shooting on Notre Dame Avenue, a blind date ended in a shooting, and yet another shooting added to the bloody toll in the real South Bend.

Those are quite a few shootings for a city of barely 100,000 people. But South Bend is a violent place.

While Chicago is notorious for its murder rate, in 2015, Buttigieg’s South Bend actually topped Chicago’s 16.4 homicides per 100,000 people with a homicide rate of 16.79 per 100,000 people. Those numbers put Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s city on the list of the top 30 murder capitals in the country for the year.

In January, three shootings in one week killed two teens and left a woman paralyzed from the waist down. In one summer week, the casualties included a 12 and a 13-year-old. Last year, a man shot 6 people when he opened fire on 50 partygoers in a house and was sentenced to 100 years in jail.

By 2017, shootings had risen 20% on Mayor Buttigieg’s watch. Rapes increased 27% and aggravated assaults rose from 183 in 2013, the year before Buttigieg took office, to a stunning 563 assaults.

It’s hard to know which are flying faster, bullets in South Bend or dollars into Buttigieg’s campaign.

Some of these stories, particularly the recent shootings of two baseball players which shocked Indiana University, should have been covered by the national media, which instead chose to broadcast Buttigieg’s publicity stunt of officiating at a pregnant woman’s wedding in a hospital. Had the media stuck around, it could have reported on the trail of shooting victims making their way into the hospital.

But reporting on an 11-month-old being shot in their hot new candidate’s city wouldn’t be as much fun.

The media’s bias has never been subtle, but its disinterest in a presidential candidate’s track record has never been this blatant. Mayor Buttigieg’s candidacy is being covered as if he weren’t the mayor of an actual city with actual problems. Instead, his prospects have been covered purely in terms of his identity, a gay millennial, his past career before taking office, and his current witticisms and applause lines.

At no point in time does the media stop to tell the viewers and readers it is regaling with stories of Mayor Buttigieg’s charm that he runs the most dangerous city in Indiana, recently rated as one of the “worst cities to live”, where nearly half the residents live at the poverty level, and even the water is bad.

These are significant data points in the track record of a politician aspiring to run the entire country.

The media keeps asking Mayor Buttigieg which of its wishlist of radical socialist policies he’s willing to sign on to, the Green New Deal, eliminating private health insurance, and freeing more convicts, rather than asking him which policies he used to try and solve problems in South Bend. And how they worked.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg has tried to pass off South Bend’s crime problem as a national issue. But South Bend’s violent crime rates, double the Indiana and American average, run counter to national trends.

Buttigieg responded by doubling down on Group Violence Intervention, a trendy community outreach strategy to gang members, which despite being widely touted by the media, doesn’t work. Gimmicks, ranging from AI to wonkery, were rolled out and the shootings, the rapes and assaults have continued.

Mayor Buttigieg excels at buzzwords and gimmicks. He’s just terrible at actually running a city.

That’s why property crime in South Bend is rising. It’s why the city is overrun with gangs. It’s why South Bend is poor, blighted and miserable. Violence is just one of the many symptoms of Buttigieg’s failures.

South Bend’s top employers are the local schools and hospitals, and the local government. And a local casino. Unemployment and taxes are higher than average. Meanwhile, the average income is below $20,000. The poverty rate is 25%. African-American poverty rates are double. Hispanic poverty rates are 10% higher than the national average. And even Asian-Americans are poorer than usual in South Bend.

Buttigieg’s failed city is a tragic counterpart to Lake Wobegon where everything is below average.

The media has ignored the reality in South Bend while touting Buttigieg as a rival for the hearts of Rust Belt voters. But Buttigieg hasn’t won by winning over traditional Rust Belt voters. South Bend’s white population has dropped steadily on his watch and the city is on track for majority-minority status. The remaining white population is skewed toward a white lefty elite coming for its educational institutions.

South Bend isn’t a typical Rust Belt city. It’s a typical blue city, divided sharply between poor minorities and a leftist elite without any of the culture or tech industries that keep New York or Los Angeles going. Its traditional population has been leaving steadily and that departure only accelerated during Buttigieg’s disastrous time in office.

Much has been made of Buttigieg winning reelection by 80%. This isn’t a testament to his unique charisma. Democrats have had a lock on the mayorality in South Bend for two generations.

The media cheers that Buttigieg won 80% of the vote. It neglects to mention that it was 8,515 votes. That’s about the 8,369 votes that came in during the primaries. Buttigieg raised $337,161 dollars while his Republican opponent, Kelly Jones, had raised $584 dollars. The millennial wunderkind needed $40 bucks a vote while his unknown Republican opponent managed at around a quarter a vote.

Like South Bend’s poverty and crime statistics, these are figures that the media doesn’t report because it would reveal that their shiny new candidate is a hollow façade with nothing inside except spin.

Mayor Buttigieg isn’t winning 80% because he’s universally beloved. That percentage isn’t a testament to his popularity, but to a political system in which hardly anybody except a few lefties bothers to vote.

The truth about “Mayor Pete” is that he’s the son of a Marxist prof working in Notre Dame who used the death throes of a dying city to polish his brand and then jump into the 2020 race over dead bodies.

South Bend is a human tragedy. And while Buttigieg isn’t solely responsible for his woes, he has exploited it, instead of trying to fix it, using buzzwords and gimmicks to build a national brand.

That’s something he has in common with fellow failed hipster mayor and 2020 candidate, Cory Booker.

But Senator Booker was at least clever enough to put a little distance between his tenure in Newark and his 2020 bid. Mayor Buttigieg is betting that the national media won’t bother looking at South Bend.

So far he’s been proven right.

The media keeps touting Buttigieg’s Ivy League credentials, his identity as a gay politician, and his charm. When it mentions South Bend, it’s only to claim that he “turned it around” and that he won his last election by 80%. South Bend hasn’t been turned around. Downtown has gotten a hipster revamp, while the rest of South Bend chokes on crime, violence and misery. But Buttigieg knows that the national media will never bother doing more than reporting on new bike paths and an organic grocery.

The 11-month-old boy who came into the hospital with a wound in his shoulder won’t catch their eye. But as Mayor Buttigieg keeps raising money hand over fist, South Bend continues to bleed and die.

And Buttigieg is hoping that he can sneak into the White House before the blood gets on his hands.

Why Won’t Bernie Sanders Release His Taxes?

No major politician has had a bigger change in his financial status after the last election than Bernie Sanders. And both in 2016 and now, Bernie has been reluctant to release his taxes, and responded to calls to do so with stalling tactics.

He’s played games with financial disclosures before.

Here’s a flashback.

But when federal law required Sanders to reveal, by mid-May, current details of his personal finances, his campaign lawyer asked the Federal Election Commission for a 45-day extension.

Request granted.

On June 30, Sanders’ campaign requested a second 45-day extension, saying the senator had “good cause” to delay because of his “current campaign schedule and officeholder duties.”

Again, regulators approved Sanders’ punt.

Now that Sanders’ second extension has expired, spokesman Michael Briggs confirmed to the Center for Public Integrity that the senator won’t file a presidential campaign personal financial disclosure after all.

Tracking TV ads in the 2016 presidential race

Who is on the air, and where?

“We were told that since the senator no longer is a candidate there was no requirement to file,” Briggs said.

Next year, in 2017, he once again dodged a deadline.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has missed the deadline to file his annual financial disclosures with the Senate, a move that continues to delay a complete examination of how his 2016 presidential bid affected his personal wealth.

Sanders’s Senate office missed the annual deadline to file his personal financial disclosure on Monday, instead requesting and receiving a 20-day extension. The Vermont news blog VTDigger first reported the extension.

Now he’s hiding behind ‘starving children’.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders sidestepped questions Thursday about when he will release his tax returns, with the Vermont independent hinting he could fulfill his six-week old pledge to make public 10 years of tax returns on April 15 — Tax Day.

Yet, as quickly as Sanders suggested that, he appeared to backtrack and wouldn’t commit that he would release them then.
“Do you know what April 15th is? It’s Tax Day,” Sanders told CNN on Capitol Hill when asked if there was an issue to releasing his taxes. “So, I think we want to make sure we have all of them together and as I said, they will be released soon.”

When asked if that meant he would not necessarily release his tax returns on April 15, Sanders responded, “That’s it. Thank you very much.”

An aide then stepped in front of CNN and said, “he answered your question” and referred CNN to follow up with a Sanders’ spokesperson.

That exchange followed a news conference earlier Thursday on the House passing a Yemen War Powers Resolution earlier. When asked about the tax returns at that news conference, Sanders declined to answer.

“Today let’s worry about the starving children in Yemen,” he said, before departing the room.

Pathetic and despicable. But those are two of Bernie’s middle names.

Why does Bernie Sanders keep playing these games? Considering his wife’s history, and his own with finances, behind all the smoke may be a fire. The Sanders Institute was recently shut down as Bernie prepared to run for office. The FBI chose not to pursue his wife over alleged fraud involving Burlington College. But there may be things still lurking in the paper underbrush.

Horrifying Medieval Diseases Are Making a Comeback: “It’s a Public Health Crisis”

A recent report from Kaiser Health News raises serious concerns about the spread of “medieval diseases” that are resurging in some parts of the US.

“Infectious diseases — some that ravaged populations in the Middle Ages — are resurging in California and around the country, and are hitting homeless populations especially hard,” the report explains.

Los Angeles recently experienced an outbreak of typhus — a disease spread by infected fleas on rats and other animals — in downtown streets. Officials briefly closed part of City Hall after reporting that rodents had invaded the building.

People in Washington state have been infected with Shigella bacteria, which is spread through feces and causes the diarrheal disease shigellosis, as well as Bartonella quintana, which spreads through body lice and causes trench fever.

Hepatitis A, also spread primarily through feces, infected more than 1,000 people in Southern California in the past two years. The disease also has erupted in New Mexico, Ohio and Kentucky, primarily among people who are homeless or use drugs. (source)

These diseases will eventually spread to the public.

While the outbreaks are occurring primarily among the homeless, public health officials warn that these diseases can easily spread outside of that population.

Terms like “disaster” and “public health crisis” are being used to describe the outbreaks.

In his State of the State speech in February, California Governor Gavin Newsom warned, “Our homeless crisis is increasingly becoming a public health crisis,” citing outbreaks of hepatitis A in San Diego County, syphilis in Sonoma County, and typhus in Los Angeles County.

“Typhus,” he said. “A medieval disease. In California. In 2019.”

The diseases sometimes are referred to as “medieval” because people in that era lived in squalid conditions without clean water or sewage treatment, said Dr. Jeffrey Klausner, a professor of medicine and public health at UCLA.

The growing homeless population means more outbreaks are likely.

The report goes on to explain that the homeless population has grown in the past two years, and infectious diseases spread quickly and widely among those who are living outside or in shelters.

“About 553,000 people were homeless at the end of 2018, and nearly one-quarter of homeless people live in California,” the report says.

Sidewalks contaminated with human feces, crowded living conditions, weakened immune systems and limited access to health care are all factors contributing to the proliferation of these medieval diseases.

People living on the streets or in homeless shelters are vulnerable to such outbreaks because their weakened immune systems are worsened by stress, malnutrition. and sleep deprivation. Many also have mental illness and substance abuse disorders, which can make it harder for them to stay healthy or get health care. (source)

Dr. Glenn Lopez, a physician with St. John’s Well Child & Family Center, who treats homeless patients in Los Angeles County, described what conditions are like for people living on the streets.

“The hygiene situation is just horrendous. It becomes just like a Third World environment where their human feces contaminate the areas where they are eating and sleeping,” he said.

Don’t be fooled into thinking you are safe from these diseases.

Those infectious diseases are not limited to homeless populations, Lopez warned. “Even someone who believes they are protected from these infections are not.”

At least one Los Angeles city staffer said she contracted typhus in City Hall last fall. And San Diego County officials warned in 2017 that diners at a well-known restaurant were at risk of hepatitis A.

There were 167 cases of typhus from Jan. 1, 2018, through Feb. 1 of this year, up from 125 in 2013 and 13 in 2008, according to the California Public Health Department. (source)

Typhus is a bacterial infection that can cause a high fever, stomach pain, and chills. It usually can be treated with antibiotics. Outbreaks are more common in overcrowded and trash-filled areas that attract rats. Clusters of the flea-borne disease were reported in downtown Los Angeles and Compton last fall. Health officials said they also have occurred in Pasadena, likely due to people feeding stray cats that are carrying fleas.

In February, the county announced another outbreak in downtown Los Angeles that infected nine people, six of whom were homeless. After city workers said they saw rodent droppings in City Hall, Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson briefly shut down his office to rip up the rugs, and he also called for an investigation and more cleaning. (source)

There were 948 cases of hepatitis A in 2017 and 178 in 2018 and 2019, the state public health department said. That outbreak killed 21 people.

Hepatitis A is caused by a virus and is usually transmitted when people come in contact with feces of infected people. Most people eventually recover on their own, but the disease can be very serious for those with preexisting liver conditions.

Pneumonia and tuberculosis also occur among homeless populations, but are more often seen in shelters.

Infectious disease outbreaks are a public health disaster.

Dr. Jeffrey Duchin, the health officer for Seattle and King County, Washington, said the infections around the country are not surprising. The lack of attention to housing and health care for the homeless and the lack of bathrooms and places to wash hands are contributing to the problem, he explained.

“It’s a public health disaster,” he said. He has seen shigellosis, trench fever, and skin infections among homeless populations in his region.

“It really is unconscionable,” said Bobby Watts, CEO of the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, a policy and advocacy organization. “These are all preventable diseases.”

These diseases will become a widespread problem if the SHTF.

If outbreaks like these are beginning to spread among the population now, can you imagine what things will be like if the SHTF?

If you think it can’t happen here, you’d be mistaken.

Just take a look at what happened in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit. Selco has outlined – in tragic detail – what life was like after SHTF after the Balkan War of the 90s.

In the article Venezuela Faces the Return of Forgotten Diseases, Jose explained that tuberculosis, diptheria, ehrlichiosis (a tropical variation of Lyme disease), and leishmaniasis are spreading quickly and are hard to treat due to the lack of medication and proper nutrition.

As Lizzie Bennett explained in Disease: 10 Conditions That Will Become Far More Common After A Collapse, “Many diseases are opportunists, they will surface at a time the conditions are right for them to flourish and most often this is at a time when humans really could do with concentrating on other stuff.” She goes on to outline ten diseases (typhoid is one of them) “that will make their presence felt after a major, long term, disaster be it war, societal collapse or in some cases even an economic downturn.”

In Wake Of Synagogue Shooting, Pittsburgh Decides To Make Easy Targets Of Law-Abiding Citizens By Illegally Banning Their Guns

The attack on the Tree of Life synagogue building in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in October 2018 has given way to the tyrants of the Pennsylvania City Council approving an illegal gun confiscation package, which seeks to disarm citizens and make them soft targets for more criminals who would make easy pray for their crimes.

The public was asked to comment before the vote.

One woman said “It’s not the weapon that’s the problem. It’s the intent of the person handling the weapon that’s the problem.”

However, what someone should have said was that the council had no authority to even consider such legislation since the right to keep and bear arms is just that, a right.  It’s is not something that can be legislated away.

CBS reports:

Pittsburgh City Council took a final vote Monday morning, passing a package of controversial gun laws introduced after last year’s mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue.

Council members voted 6-3 to pass the bills. They now head to Democratic Mayor Bill Peduto for his expected signature.

The legislation will place restrictions on military-style assault weapons like the AR-15 rifle that authorities say was used in the Oct. 27 rampage at Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill, which killed 11 people and wounded seven.

It also bans most uses of armor-piercing ammunition and high-capacity magazines, and allows the temporary seizure of guns from people who are determined to be a danger to themselves or others.

Furthermore, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency adds:

The measures also ban ammunition and accessories, such as large capacity magazines, and allow courts to temporarily remove guns from a person deemed to be a public threat. A companion bill passed by the council directs additional funding to city anti-violence programs.

City residents who own guns and accessories outlined in the bills would be grandfathered. Violators of the laws could be fined $1,000, or face up to 90 days in prison, for each offense.

Second Amendment advocates say they will challenge the illegal legislation due to the fact that the city does not have authority to issue such measures.

Time Magazine reports:

Pittsburgh has a home rule charter, which affords the city some independence from the state legislature. But Pennsylvania’s law on the charter says a municipality “shall not enact any ordinance or take any other action dealing with the regulation of the transfer, ownership, transportation or possession of firearms.” The state’s firearms code has an amendment that expressly prohibits municipalities from regulating the “lawful ownership, possession, transfer or transportation of firearms, ammunition or ammunition components.” That inherent tension has set in motion a legal battle over gun rights in Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania more broadly.

Time went on to state something completely unconstitutional.

Pennsylvania’s legislature is the only entity that can change the state law to grant cities and municipalities the right to regulate firearms on their own, according to David Harris, a professor at the University of Pittsburgh’s law school. Right now, Pittsburgh and the courts can battle it out over the specificity of wording in the bills and the state legislation, Harris tells TIME. Because the provision from the city bans the use of certain weapons, one could argue that the state law does not technically stipulate anything about firearms usage. “In order to have this stand up, courts will have to find that the idea of using these items that are now part of the city’s law is different than all the other ways the state prohibited cities from regulating firearms,” Harris says.

Sorry, no, the state legislature has no more authority under the Constitution to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms of law-abiding citizens than the municipality does.  All gun laws are unconstitutional by the very definition outlines in the Second Amendment as a protected right.

The Pittsburgh City Council has become the enemy of the people of Pittsburgh, not it’s representation.

DOJ & FBI Sued For Top Officials’ Communications About Russian Interference in 2016 Elections

Now, that it’s been confirmed that the Russian Collusion scam was nothing more than a conspiracy theory cooked up by the Hillary Clinton campaign that was disseminated by the FBI, the media and the Democrat Party, it’s on to what the real story is about the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 elections.  Government watchdog Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice and the FBI to obtain communications records from then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, as well as then-FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and the Office of General Counsel regarding possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections in the united States.

The original May 21, 2018 FOIA request sought from the DOJ:

All records of internal DOJ communications, including emails (whether on .gov or non-.gov email accounts), text messages or instant chats, of officials in the offices of the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General regarding possible Russian involvement and/or interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.

The original May 21, 2018 FOIA request to the FBI was similar in its request:

All records of internal FBI communications, including emails (whether on .gov or non-.gov email accounts), text messages or instant chats, of officials in the offices of the FBI Director, FBI Deputy Director and Office of General Counsel regarding possible Russian involvement and/or interference in the 2016 US presidential campaign.

Like everything else, both agencies dragged their feet and as a result, they failed once again to respond to the FOIA requests.

The communications that were being sought dated between January 2016 and May 2017.

Judicial Watch reports:

In July 2018 the DOJ claimed that it needed additional time to respond to Judicial Watch’s request but has since been unresponsive. The DOJ’s answer to Judicial Watch is due April 21, 2019.

The FBI asserted in June 2018 that all records responsive to the request were exempt from disclosure, claiming that release would result in interference with law enforcement proceedings.

This is the latest FOIA lawsuit in Judicial Watch’s ongoing, in-depth investigation regarding the FBI’s involvement in the Russian investigation. Judicial Watch’s extensive investigation includes discovering information on the Clinton funded anti-Trump dossier and its use to obtain FISA warrants in order to spy on the Trump campaign; politically biased messages against President Trump between former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page; the leaking of former FBI Director Comey’s memos; and the relationship between FBI official Bruce Ohr, his wife Nellie Ohr and Fusion GPS.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton explained, “Americans deserve to know the truth about what the corrupted DOJ and FBI leadership were saying when they were ginning up the bogus Russia investigation.  The targeting of President Trump by the Obama administration and the Deep State.”

My guess is that we are probably going to discover that there really wasn’t all the interference we’ve been led to believe by the Russians.  Rather, we already know that social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter were actively involved in manipulating news and commentary regarding the election, and on top of that, we know there was a ton of voter fraud around the country.

When are we going to stop pointing the finger at foreign countries and take care of our own corruption?

7 Women Come Forward To Accuse Former Vice President Joe Biden

It’s absolutely amazing this man held any public office, especially the office of vice president.  Even more concerning is his bid for the White House in 2020, after his embarrassment as the usurper’s VP.  Still, as we have reported with documented video evidence, Joe Biden clearly cannot keep his hands nor his lips to himself.  One wonders if he has kept other parts of his anatomy to only his wife and himself.  It looks like the Deep State doesn’t want Biden in the White House in 2020 and so they are sending the CIA-controlled media after him about things that are actually true.

The Washington Post reports:

Biden addressed critics in a video posted to Twitter as three additional women told The Washington Post on Wednesday about encounters with him that made them feel uncomfortable. Their stories bring the total number of people who have expressed concerns about alleged interactions with Biden to seven.

Wow, former Senator Al Franken took quite a while to get that many accusers and look, basically within a week, Biden has done it with ease.  No doubt, there are hundreds if not thousands to whom Biden has acted inappropriately, and no doubt, many more are to emerge in the coming days.

WaPo adds:

Vail Kohnert-Yount said she was a White House intern in the spring of 2013 and one day tried to exit the basement of the West Wing when she was asked to step aside so Biden could enter. After she moved out of the way, she said, Biden approached her to introduce himself and shake her hand.

“He then put his hand on the back of my head and pressed his forehead to my forehead while he talked to me. I was so shocked that it was hard to focus on what he was saying. I remember he told me I was a ‘pretty girl,’ ” Kohnert-Yount said in a statement to The Post.

Of course, Biden sought to exercise some damage control and issued a video on Wednesday in an attempt to justify his behavior.


<p\>Biden acknowledged shifting social norms and promised to be “more respectful of people’s personal space,” he defended his style of interacting and did not offer an apology.

“I’ll be much more mindful. That is my responsibility, my responsibility, and I’ll meet it. But I’ll always believe governing, quite frankly, and life, for that matter, is about connecting, about connecting with people. That won’t change,” Biden said in the video.

Everyone understands a hug from people you know, but we’ve all seen how Biden does lengthy hugs, has his hands everywhere and kissing and just being all around creepy.  He isn’t encouraging any of the women I’ve seen.  Does it appear that way to you?

In fact, it’s interesting that he’s just now saying he gets it about personal space.  I thought he said he understood that in 2018.

“Nothing justifies a man laying a hand on a woman without her consent. Look, you need consent,” Biden said in an April 2018 video interview with feminist media outlet Makers.

Notice the “Never, never, never, never…” comments he makes about it.

Let those “nevers” be that he serves in public office again.

US Muslim Soldier Suing Army – Claims She Was Forced To Remove Hijab In Front Of Others

“Though her MEO complaint was reportedly found to be ‘unsubstantiated,’ Valdovinos told the publication she now intends to take legal action against the U.S. Army for infringing upon her First Amendment rights by violating her freedom of religion. However, according to a statement from Valdovinos’s brigade officer that was obtained by Yahoo!, a commander’s inquiry into her allegations was found to have ‘concluded that the senior non-commissioned officer acted appropriately by enforcing the proper wear of the hijab, in compliance with Army Regulations.’”

So, an inquiry determined that her claims were unfounded, and she is suing anyway.

Armies have uniforms to avoid this sort of thing.

The idea of a uniform is to signify that various individuals are submitting — voluntarily, it’s a volunteer army — to a common purpose, and putting aside their differences in the service of a greater unity.

Is Cesilia Valdovinos doing that?

It’s noteworthy that we have seen Muslims claiming victim status many times before, and making false claims about being mistreated or brutalized: victimhood is a big business these days, and brings the victim many perks.

Is that what we are seeing here?

“Muslim soldier says she will sue Army for allegedly forcing her to remove hijab,” by Aris Folley, The Hill, April 3, 2019:

A Muslim soldier said she is preparing to sue the U.S. Army after her command sergeant major allegedly forced her to remove her hijab in front of others.

Sgt. Cesilia Valdovinos, a member the 704th Brigade Support Battalion who converted to Islam in 2016, told Yahoo! in a recent interview that her brigade commander, Col. David Zinn, granted her permission in June to wear a hijab while in uniform.

But Valdovinos told the publication that from that time forward, she experienced “extremely hateful” behavior because of her religion.

“I got called a ‘terrorist.’ I got called ‘ISIS.’ I hear comments that I’m the reason why 9/11 happened,” Valdovinos told Yahoo!. “There’s a lot of anger and animosity.”

Valdovinos said she filed a complaint with the military’s Equal Opportunity Office last month, however, after her command sergeant major allegedly pulled her out of rank and ordered her to remove her head covering in front of her colleagues.

“I felt embarrassed and religiously raped in a sense,” Valdovinos said in an email to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), a nonprofit advocacy organization that is currently representing her, according to Yahoo!.

“My religious preference is only to unveil in front of my husband in the comfort of my own home,” she continued.

With the help of MRFF, Valdovinos reportedly filed an official complaint with the Military Equal Opportunity Office (MEO) over the incident shortly thereafter.

In the complaint, Valdovinos reportedly alleges she was removed from her post as a “culinary arts specialist” because of her “religious preference to not handle pork” and claims she was referred to as “the girl with the hood” by her sergeant, among a number of other incidents, according to Yahoo.

Though her MEO complaint was reportedly found to be “unsubstantiated,” Valdovinos told the publication she now intends to take legal action against the U.S. Army for infringing upon her First Amendment rights by violating her freedom of religion.

However, according to a statement from Valdovinos’s brigade officer that was obtained by Yahoo!, a commander’s inquiry into her allegations was found to have “concluded that the senior non-commissioned officer acted appropriately by enforcing the proper wear of the hijab, in compliance with Army Regulations.”…

Mississippi: Cop Gets 20 Years for Having Sex with Fellow Cop as Her Child Died in Hot Patrol Car

Long Beach, MS — Leaving a child in a hot car until they die is a tragic mistake that roughly three dozen parents make every year in this country. This nightmarish negligence comes with a punishment no prison sentence could ever trump. Now, a former cop from Mississippi has learned her fate after she pleaded guilty to this very same horrifying blunder of leaving her three-year-old daughter strapped in her hot patrol car until she died—as this cop had sex with her supervisor inside his home.

Former Long Beach police officer Cassie Barker will spend the next 20 years behind bars for the death of her three-year-old daughter. Her sentence was handed down on Monday by Judge Lawrence Bourgeois, who told Barker that she failed in her responsibility to “protect and serve” as a mother and as a police officer.

“You left your own flesh and blood in that car while you were in an air-conditioned house to have sexual relations,” he said.

On September 30, 2016, Barker strapped her three-year-old daughter into a car seat in the back of her patrol car and entered her supervisor’s home for a mid-day romp. Barker knew the air conditioner did not work, but nevertheless turned on the vent and went inside.

As her daughter sat strapped in her death bed, Barker had sex with officer Clark Ladner inside the home. After the deed had been done, Barker and Ladner then fell asleep.

Authorities said Cheyenne Barker’s body temperature reached 107 degrees before she died.

For this gross act of negligence, Barker was charged with second-degree murder. However, as TFTP reported, last month, she pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of manslaughter in a plea deal.

Prosecutors recommended a sentence of no less than 20 years and they got it.

“I don’t know what I could ever do to you that could be worse than what you’ve already experienced,” Bourgeois told her at the time. “You will forever be entombed in a prison of your own mind.”

What makes the case of former police officer Cassie Barker so terrible is that she is a repeat offender. Barker had previously lost custody of Cheyenne for doing the exact same thing a year earlier.

According to the AP, Barker went into a store in nearby Gulfport, and a concerned passerby called police. Child protective services took temporary custody of her, and Baker was suspended for a week without pay.

Because of her blue privilege, Cheyenne’s father, Ryan Hyer was never notified and was helpless to prevent the future event.

“Every time I close my eyes, I picture her suffering, and then I picture her laying in this coffin,” Hyer said Monday, the AP reported. “I still see her smiling and laughing in my head, and I would assume that smile and laughter turned to pain and suffering in that instance.”

Hyer has since filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against both the Long Beach Police Department and the Mississippi Department of Child Protection Services for failing to notify him.

“You lose your child, I don’t think there’s no amount of sentencing or time that could make up for that,” Hyer said after the sentencing. “But this is how the justice system works. With what the judge had to work with, I’m happy that he gave her the max that was allowed by law.”

While Barker’s guilty plea landed her in jail for the next 20 years, as TFTP has reported, not all cops who leave their babies in hot cars until they die get charged.

Officer Mark Fanfarillo left his 4 ½-month-old baby, Michael, in his car during the summer of 2016 — for nearly nine hours — but Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara refused to press charges.

According to McNamara, the officer placed Michael in the back seat to drop his elder child at daycare — though he typically didn’t bring the youngest along for the ride. After returning home, Fanfarillo simply forgot the baby was strapped into his car seat, did a few chores, and, like Barker did, he fell asleep — while Michael suffered in oppressive summer heat, eventually dying of hyperthermia, over 8 ½ hours later.

Unlike Barker, officer Mark Fanfarillo is still a cop.

Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar Working Behind Scenes For Release Of Top Muslim Brotherhood Leader

What Omar does is bad enough, and getting worse all the time, but what is even worse still is the fact that the Democrats have embraced her hatred of America.

They have embraced and internalized it.

It is part of what they are.

The horror of the hate that Omar represents and fosters is very real, but we can be grateful that America is seeing this, hearing this, finally — the true face of the new Nazi party, the party of jihad, the party of treason.

The notoriously hard-left enemedia has hidden the evil of the Democrat party for far too long. Scrub as they might, this is too evil to shroud.

“Ilhan Omar Is Working Behind the Scenes For Release Of Top Terrorist Leader,” Conservative Post, April 3, 2019 (thanks to Mark):

Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar, a noted anti-Semite, is now begging President Donald Trump for his help…

The prisoner she is begging President Trump to help her free is Hoda Abdelmonem, a leader in the terrorist group The Muslim Brotherhood.

“I recently met with @jkbadawy and @thefreedomi to talk about Hoda Abdelmonem, a political prisoner in Egypt,” she said.

“I hope that Trump brings up her case in his meeting with the regime that has imprisoned her. We must work to #FreeHoda,” she said.

Omar was quickly called out on her nonsense by conservative writer Jordan Schachtel who gave it to her straight.

“I just confirmed: Hoda Abdelmonem is a ***senior female leader**** of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Why is an American congresswoman advocating for an Islamist activist?” he said.

Not So Affordable Healthcare: Americans Had To Borrow 88 BILLION Dollars To Cover Their Medical Bills Last Year

I know that the headline sounds outrageous, but it is actually true.  According to a brand new report that was just released, Americans had to borrow 88 billion dollars to cover their medical bills last year.  That is a truly astounding number, and it shows just how dramatically our current health care system has failed.  And even though the vast majority of Americans are covered by “health insurance”, millions of us are deathly afraid to go to the hospital because of what it might cost.  Today, two-thirds of all personal bankruptcies in the United States are caused by medical bills, and most of the people going bankrupt actually had health insurance.  Overall, more than half a million American families are financially ruined by medical bills each year, and meanwhile, our “representatives” in Washington are doing absolutely nothing to fix the problem.

Surveys have shown that up to two-thirds of the country is living paycheck to paycheck at least part of the time, and an unexpected medical bill can be absolutely devastating for those that are just barely scraping by.

Without much of a financial cushion to fall back on, many families must borrow money when confronted with a large medical expense, and the scale at which this is happening is absolutely stunning

Health care costs in the United States are generally measured as the highest in the world. Last year, many Americans could not afford their health care costs and so borrowed $88 billion to pay for that portion they could not afford.

According to a new West Health and Gallup poll, in a new report titled “The U.S. Healthcare Cost Crisis,” the $88 billion was borrowed in the year before the survey, which was done from January 14 to February 20. The poll was conducted via a random group of 3,537 adults over 18 living in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

How in the world is this possible?

After all, more than 90 percent of all Americans have some form of health coverage.  So why did Americans need to borrow 88 billion dollars to cover their unpaid medical bills last year alone?

Well, first of all it is important to remember that health insurance deductibles have gotten obscenely huge.  The following numbers come from a CNN article about Obamacare

The law sets a ceiling on how much consumers have to spend on health care. In 2019, it’s $7,900 for a single person and double that for a family. Some bronze plans peg their deductibles to those levels.

The average deductible for a 2019 bronze policy — which have higher deductibles, but lower premiums than other tiers of Obamacare plans — is nearly $5,900, while the average maximum of out-of-pocket limit is just under $7,000, according to Health Pocket, an online health insurance shopping tool. Family bronze plans have an average deductible of just under $12,200 and an average out-of-pocket maximum of nearly $14,000.

Secondly, even if you have surpassed your deductible, there is still no guarantee that your health insurance company will cover your medical bills.  If you do not jump through every single little hoop they want you to jump through, in many instances, they will leave you high and dry.  When I was running for Congress I had personal conversations with so many people that had been screwed over by the health insurance companies.  The more claims they deny, the more money they make, and they have become masters at finding even the smallest loophole that will enable them to wiggle off the hook.

Of course there are some health insurance companies out there that are doing a good job, but the bad apples give the entire industry a very bad name.

We have a system that is deeply broken, and it greatly frustrates me that both political parties seem so uninterested in getting a solution through Congress.

Here are some more numbers that show the current state of the U.S. health care system…

3.7 trillion dollars was spent on health care in the United States in 2018.  That breaks down to $10,739 per person.

-If our health care system was a country, it would have the fifth largest GDP on the entire planet.

76 percent of Americans believe that they pay too much for the quality of health care that they receive.

-Out of the 36 counties in the OECD, the U.S. ranks 31st in infant mortality.

-Prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States today.

-Pharmaceutical companies spend approximately 30 billion dollars a year to market their drugs to all of us.

Nearly half of all U.S. doctors are considering leaving the field of medicine, and health insurance companies are the primary reason.

-The median charge for visiting an emergency room in the United States is well over a thousand dollars.

When I was growing up, my mother took me and my siblings to the doctor constantly.  But I don’t know anyone that does that today, because it would be ridiculously expensive in most cases.

And one recent survey actually found that 41 percent of all Americans decided against an emergency room visit last year “due to cost”

Another major personal financial concern among Americans is that 45% worry that a “major health care event” would leave them bankrupt, the West Health-Gallup survey found. Additionally, in the past year, 41% said they did not visit an emergency room due to cost.

Fifteen million Americans “deferred” purchasing prescription drugs in the past year because of costs as well. Finally, 76% believe the problem will become worse because health care costs will rise more over the next two years.

Fixing our horribly broken health care system needs to be a top national priority, but earlier today Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made it abundantly clear that nothing will be done about Obamacare in the Senate until the 2020 election.  And of course, the Democrats are not going to make any major moves on health care until the 2020 election either.

Unfortunately, we are stuck with what we have got for the moment.

Our health care crisis is a national nightmare that never seems to end, and it gets worse with each passing year.

So for now, just hope that nobody in your family becomes seriously ill, because if that happens there is a good chance you might go bankrupt.

Blacks Blind To Their Own Cultural Enslavement

Considering the media firestorm surrounding actor Jussie Smollett being charged and subsequently released for perpetrating a potentially dangerous hate crime hoax, I thought it would be appropriate to weigh in with some race-related reality to give some context.

Jussie Smollett is probably too young to understand how his actions dishonored those who sacrificed in the cause of racial equality over the course of our nation’s existence. In school, I imagine he wasn’t taught anything remotely resembling reality on the subject of history, particularly in this area. Factor in Smollett having been raised in the entertainment industry from childhood, and we can see how unlikely it is that any sense of moral obligation he might have harbored could have survived.

As distasteful as it is for me, I occasionally engage in “media slumming,” meaning that I expose myself to media that I would never watch for enjoyment in order to remain informed as to what’s going on in media venues. I don’t have broadcast television, nor do I participate in the ripoff of cable TV, but I do have streaming services through which I can glean a fairly decent representation of what’s afoot in broadcast TV.

Similar to the inescapability of superfluous homo-erotica, pro-LGBTQ messages and anti-Trump snark pervading TV and films these days, the America-as-an-institutionally-racist-nation message has also taken on new life over the last couple of years. Case in point: In just the last year, I’ve viewed more TV dramas than I can count in which characters bemoan Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and a host of other real-life black Americans being murdered by racist cops.

Such laments are abject mythology, but when one is in that passive mode of being plugged into the brain-sucker box for entertainment purposes, the ensuing effects can be quite insidious.

I was having a discussion with some people on social media the other day on the topic of how the genres of hip-hop and rap debase black people, particularly black women. I offered that while I certainly concur with this assessment, it’s only a small part of the ongoing campaign of the left – and to some extent, our government – to keep blacks culturally enslaved. This is actually a theory I began developing in my teens, when I saw the music being marketed to blacks becoming less mainstream and increasingly geared toward hedonistic and narcissistic themes. Perhaps I noticed this because I’m a lifelong musician, as opposed to being remarkably intuitive.

I paused bemusedly after having employed the phrase “cultural enslavement.” I don’t know If I coined it then and there, and I don’t need the credit, but it’s bloody brilliant regardless.

Cultural enslavement is essentially what the political left has imposed upon blacks since the Civil Rights Movement. I have written previously about some of the federal government’s efforts to keep blacks on the proverbial plantation as popular sentiment around the existing racial inequities in America began to change; these included FDR and Harry Truman conspiring with unions to use entitlement programs to keep black men from taking union jobs, and of course the deleterious effects entitlement programs have had on black families in general.

It’s been said that prior to the Civil Rights Movement, blacks were probably one of the most socially conservative groups in America. Occasionally, someone will point out how stable black communities and families were prior to this period, when wholesale government intervention into race-related issues and the explosion of entitlement programs took place. This is certainly accurate, despite leftists being quick to offer catty little mincing retorts in these cases: So, are you saying that blacks were better off under Jim Crow and segregation – hmm?

I often proffer the argument that America is not an institutionally racist nation in the sense that black activists and liberals maintain it is. America is indeed an institutionally racist nation, however, in the sense that since the Civil Rights Movement (which I’m using as a temporal landmark, not a cause), blacks’ identity has been dictated by liberal whites and their black lackeys, and this has been actualized largely through the entertainment industry. I went into great detail on this topic in my book, “Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal – America’s Racial Obsession.”

In short, since the late 1960s, blacks in America have learned how to behave and who to be from TV sitcoms, films and the music industry.

Of even more significance is the fact that blacks have learned from these media sources how to relate to other racial groups and how other racial groups relate to them. The worldview they adopted as a result has been extremely disadvantageous to them and was predicated upon the desire of influential liberals to influence how blacks relate to just about everything.

More recently, young blacks have been indoctrinated en masse into the sociopathic culture of the lowest-of-the-low in the black community: criminals. In addition to the gratuitous use of profanity, more often than not the themes of rap and hip-hop purveyors are narcissistic in the extreme, antisocial, anti-authority, misogynistic and racist. The attitudes represented within these themes have been adopted by young blacks in the same manner in which young whites assume the attitudes of their music idols.

Unlike Mötley Cruë, however, which promoted the abstract if morally ambiguous “sex, drugs ‘n’ rock ‘n’ roll” lifestyle, in their lyrics, rappers routinely showcase their disdain for authority, multiple baby mamas, dealing drugs and killing people – even police.

The cure? As simplistic as it may sound, like so many of the threats we face from the hard left, it’s going to come down to people waking up to the reality of what’s going on. In the case of black Americans, with so many remaining mired in the orthodoxy of the left and the Democratic Party, I see this as being a particularly difficult if not an extremely unlikely proposition.

Purdue Pharma & Sackler Family Were Exposed In 2007 – Why Was It Ignored?

Consider how many lives could have been saved if those responsible for the prescription opioid epidemic had been charged under RICO.  Why should they have been charged and what exactly is RICO?  Here is a simplified definition for those not familiar.

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering and allows the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes they ordered others to do or assisted them in doing,

Raymond & Beverly Sackler

In July 2007, I was asked to testify before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee at the request of Vermont’s U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy concerning the guilty plea of Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin in federal court on charges of criminally marketing OxyContin.  My testimony before the Judiciary Committee is shown below.  It is a day I will never forget.  What is etched in my mind more than anything is when my testimony was delivered, Senator Leahy advised me that there would be “no investigation” into Purdue Pharma or the Sacklers.  The Committee was only taking testimony.  I was stunned.

If you take the time to read through my 2007 testimony below, where I have highlighted reference to the Sackler family, owners of Purdue Pharma, you might want to ask how many lives would have been saved 12 years ago, if Purdue Pharma and the Sacklers had been investigated and charged?  Why has it taken 12 years for attention to be given to Purdue Pharma and the Sacklers when I begged for it in 2007?

Instead of photo ops with politicians and attorneys general, you might want to ask them — “How many deaths were you waiting for to become interested in saving lives to a manufactured opioid epidemic — by an evil family who ran a multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical corporation?”  Where was the outrage?

Testimony of Marianne Skolek

US Senate Judiciary Committee
July 31, 2007

My name is Marianne Skolek. I had a beautiful 29-year-old daughter named Jill. She had the misfortune of being prescribed OxyContin in January 2002 and was killed on April 29, 2002. Jill left behind her son Brian who was 6 years old at the time of his mom’s death. Brian is with me in the Senate today.

Why did a $9 billion privately held pharmaceutical corporation take the life of my precious daughter? My work against Purdue Pharma for the past 5 years initially focused on J. David Haddox, dentist turned psychiatrist, and Senior Medical Director of Purdue Pharma. I also focused on Robin Hogen, former Public Relations spokesman for Purdue Pharma.

In 1996, the American Academy of Pain Medicine and the American Pain Society issued a set of guidelines for the use of opiates in the treatment of chronic pain. These guidelines are referred to as a “consensus statement.” The statement leaning toward a more liberal use of opiates was adopted just as the marketing push for OxyContin began. This consensus statement was produced by a task force, which was headed by J. David Haddox, former president of the American Academy of Pain Medicine, who was senior medical advisor for Purdue Pharma – the maker of OxyContin. Haddox was quoted as saying that “the point was to gather consensus. If you are going to do this, this is how it should be done.” There was a question as to whether it was ethical for Haddox to be associated with a pharmaceutical manufacturer to guide the formation of a document that would play a key role in promoting the use of products made by the company – Purdue Pharma.

Richard Sackler

When OxyContin was introduced on the market, it was intended for the treatment of cancer patients and they were losing the patent on MS Contin. At one point, in the greed and sheer evil of Purdue Pharma, they intended to market OxyContin to OB/GYN patients. I flooded the country with emails and faxes to Attorney Generals and the media reporting that we had enough devastation in the country without addicting infants to OxyContin. This marketing ploy was terminated by Purdue Pharma. Pain patients from various pain societies will speak of the merits of OxyContin and their quality of life being restored because of the drug. These pain societies throughout the country – are funded by Purdue Pharma. Let the pain patients not a part of any funded pain society of Purdue Pharma speak about the quality of life they have after becoming addicted to OxyContin – and when their physicians refuse to renew prescriptions for the drug – and they go on the street to buy the drug because they can’t kick the habit of this less addictive drug.

Ask the FDA and the DEA why OxyContin is in such plentiful supply on the streets all over the country. Jill and thousands of victims of an out of control, greedy pharmaceutical company headed by three convicted criminals marketed OxyContin as less likely to be addictive and abused.

There are assertions that the only victims in the criminal activities of Purdue Pharma were the physicians who were misled by Purdue Pharma’s sales representatives. The physicians, who were used as pawns by Purdue Pharma, were not ingesting a powerful narcotic that was being marketed as less likely to be addictive or abused – the patients were ingesting OxyContin and were becoming addicted and dying. If patients aren’t victims of Purdue Pharma’s criminal activities, tell me what they should be called. The addictions and loss of lives because of OxyContin continue to impact every state in the country every single day. The far-reaching consequences of the criminal activity of Purdue Pharma did not end in 2001 or 2002 as they would like it to be believed – no one can turn the clock back.

This has been allowed to become a national crisis because there was no conscience in the marketing of OxyContin – there was only greed. We all hear on the news every day about individuals who work for government agencies or private industry who embezzle funds. Purdue Pharma has been found criminally responsible for marketing OxyContin which resulted in death and addiction. Is it justice to have these convicted criminals – these monsters – fined an amount of money that is very well afforded by them, or will the Senate send a message that because of the magnitude of the crime committed, they deserve to be further investigated by the Senate. Anything that is imposed against these convicted criminals will not give us back Jill, but I will guarantee that Purdue Pharma will never forget the name Jill Skolek.

When I began my work at exposing these three convicted criminals and Haddox and Hogen, I told Hogen that you messed with the wrong mother – and they did because my work is not over. I want to know why the FDA allowed OxyContin to cause such destruction to the lives of scores of innocent victims.

I want to know why 12 warning letters were sent by the FDA to Purdue Pharma about their marketing of OxyContin and to this day, they are not required to put “highly addictive” or “addictive” on the label of the drug. I want to know why the FDA deleted without reading so many of my emails about the marketing of OxyContin until this last month.

I want to know why Curtis Wright, while employed by the FDA, played an intricate part in the approval of OxyContin and then was hired by Purdue Pharma.

I want to know why Attorney General Blumenthal of Connecticut’s Citizen Petition which requests strengthened warnings for OxyContin as a result of information they uncovered in their investigation against Purdue Pharma has been sitting at the FDA – without any action – since January 2004.

I want to know how Rudy Guliani could be the “big star” hired by Purdue Pharma to play down the abuse and diversion of OxyContin and also get paid by the DEA for work performed for them.  

I want to know why the Sackler family has not been held accountable for their involvement with Purdue Pharma and the mass marketing of OxyContin.

Raymond & Beverly Sackler

 

Eventually, Purdue Pharma will introduce another blockbuster drug similar to OxyContin and as they did with another devastating drug called Palladone. Palladone was removed from the market after a couple of months.

I like to think that my faxes and emails all over the country played an intricate part in having it removed. My advice to Purdue Pharma is when you are ready to introduce another drug such as OxyContin or Palladone, look behind you, because I will be right there. I will be working at having Howard Udell disbarred for his criminal activities and Paul Goldenheim’s medical license revoked for what amounts to white collar drug trafficking. I will be actively working at Friedman, Udell and Goldenheim never being able to work in the pharmaceutical industry again because they are convicted criminals who criminally marketed OxyContin. I will accomplish this – hopefully with the help of Attorney General Blumenthal — do not doubt me at not being successful at achieving this. Her name was Jill Carol Skolek. She did not deserve to be prescribed OxyContin and die because of the criminal activities of individuals of Purdue Pharma . Please give my family justice and investigate the criminal activity of Purdue Pharma .

Thank you, Senators, for giving me the opportunity to speak for thousands of victims of an out of control pharmaceutical corporation.

Beto O’Rourke Funneled $100,000 In Campaign Funds To Family Firm

Whatever the polling numbers may say, Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are in a tight race to cash in on their political brands. Bobby O’Rourke is still an amateur. But he did manage to pick up $100K in campaign cash.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke paid roughly $110,000 in campaign funds to a web development company while either he or his wife owned it, public records show.

Either O’Rourke or his wife owned Stanton Street — a small web development firm that O’Rourke founded in 1998 — during the vast majority of those payments.

Such payments are legal, so long as the campaign is charged for the actual cost of the services, but ethics watchdogs have criticized the practice as a form of self-dealing.

Which it obviously is.

But still less outrageous than the shenanigans that Mr. and Mrs. Sanders had allegedly gotten up to.

Still it’s bad.

The conflicts of interest and the impropriety are obvious.

O’Rourke didn’t break the law. But these are not the actions of the idealistic outsider that O’Rourke wants to market himself as, but as an old establishment hand who knows every angle for cashing in on his position, his brand and his image.

Educratic Semantics: “Competence”

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in my last article, I showed you the at least 20-year-old movement to ‘expand time’ in the name of ‘education’. If you read that article, you saw that the goal wasn’t a true academic advancement of oneself, it was more about a student/worker hurried up and churned out as a ‘competent’ skill-based apprenticeship leading to a job.

However, what if I showed you, there’s a much more devious plan afoot?

Warriors, we once experienced history where Germany attempted to ‘rule the roost’. If you’re like me, you weren’t born then, so you didn’t live through those horrors.

Immediately after World War II, America was one of the 4 countries in control of the restructure. Many years later, the changes which were made, showed through in education. How? By way of the economic structure, the corporate structure, and, the government structure changes.

Yes, the US was involved in the German restructure by pushing for ‘democracy’. Since America’s a republic (by our Constitution), I wonder what would be different today, had the push been for a ‘republic’.

freeamericans

So, imagine, that in 2019, in America, some of those very Germanic restructured roots showed up. What would you do? What has OUR government done? What has OUR economy done for education? What has OUR corporate structure accomplished? 

********************************************************************
The educratic global shift we’ve seen is NOT the fault or total undoing of one country, it’s been a controlled and well-financed group effort!

workedcycle
America’s ensnared in the alignment of education and workforce.

Enter the Word Game surrounding “Competence”:

Warriors, if you’re like me, every time you hear certain words, you cringe. Especially when you research items. You may also be like me, and see the larger picture looming in the background because you’ve seen so much. Case in point, “Competence”.

Germancompetency(Source for German/Latin roots)

****If you choose to access the German/Latin roots, you may need to use your internet tool for an English translation.*****

My fellow Warriors, you know how I’ve shown you, over the years, the word games used against us. I’m not assuming every educrat in DC or your State knows the watered down English version of ‘competency’; but knowing it has more to do with other things than true academics, do you see how it’s been used to further the agenda?!

Look at it this way, ‘CBE, competency-based education’: NOT ‘expert’ based education or ‘skill’ based, BUT ‘legally controlled and authoritatively carried out’ education!!

English speaking countries may mean ‘skill-based’, but NOT “expert-based” or ‘legally/authority based’.
But, if the educrats did mean one version, and, assume you and I believe the other, then it’s the Latin meaning of ‘clashing’.

It’s also a ‘classic set up’, we’ve seen the CCSS Machine used repeatedly, you look one way, while I undermine the other way.

So why, in the context of ‘competent’, would the German version be more accepted and in 2019?

****Because it is the closest to align with the UNESCO/OECD* plan for authoritatively controlled workforce based training NOT academic prowess!!****

(*Note: OECD is short for Organization for Economic Co-operation and DevelopmentUNESCO is short for the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization.)

2009humancapital

Warriors, why would it matter what the German usage and meaning of ‘competence’ really stands for? Because when it’s accepted as their nation sees it, it’s about a collective reflection of education interests of the society….not each student.

This is an approach DC has been taking for years. Especially since the Johnson Administration straight through to the Trump team. 

Come with me, Warriors, as I show you the German model America has heartily set us up to embrace without hesitation. (How much of the current system is based off Hitler’s? Read and find out.)

hitler

Vocational Education:

Warriors, Germany still calls education which trains you for a job or a trade as vocational education. Americans called it ‘vo tech’.

Some Americans, to this day, believe ‘vo tech’ is not only still an option, but should be taught. In 2006, that term ‘died’and was replaced. (Yes, Warriors, another word game.)

That’s when our US government changed what the definition of ‘vocational education’ was. The ‘training’portion was also redefined. How? The government funding!
However, even the CCSS Machine still uses ‘vo tech’ in America to confuse us!

voctegrave
Congress, at least, has finally stopped lying about how education is seen. Look below, this sentiment is readily spoken and shared by BOTH major political parties:

A German Commissioned Study:

Warriors, I found this undated (appears to be very recent, though) commissioned study by Bertelsmann Stiftung (an education based social change group. They heavily support a ‘school to work’* concept.) But, it’s WHERE I found it, you will be interested in. The American “National Career Pathways Network” website.

The German Study features an ‘expert’ from Germany who is considered the ‘go to’ guy on vocational tech training. His name is Professor Dr. Dieter Euler. He’s known across the world as the specialist for reforming vocational tech systems.

Some Of  The Study’s Points:

WarriorsI’ll share some of the most troubling points from the Study. I trust you can see the ways in which our nation, our government, and, our corporate overreaches have set the same shift up in American education. I encourage you to read the Study on your own.

1) The shift to work-based learning (also called dual enrollment) should be the main focus of vocational tech/training. The main target? Citizens under 25 years old. (Page 14 has a brief history of combining education and work.)

2) Many countries are looking at the success of Germany’s system because it’s been spun as a ‘win/win’. Students get fast-tracked education, employers get trained workers.

3) America’s not as developed in dual vocational tech, yet. But, the shift is being increased with ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) and its embedding of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math)WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), and HEA (Higher Education Act).

HEA is currently the last national US law to receive the‘school to work’ makeover. Congress is dead set on increasing the German based concepts. How? Increased CTE (Career Tech Education), which replaced ‘vo tech’, increasing pprenticeships and internships, increasing dual enrollment, and anything connecting them all.

4) The 11 Vo-Tech Reform Components can best be accomplished in ‘incremented innovation’ programs and learning. The shift in education and work training is also metered out in ‘incremented segments’.

votech11

5) Other concerns include which government or business group is in charge of exams for certificates and degrees. In Germany, it is the Chamber of Commerce and Industry as well as the German Confederation of Skilled Crafts. You’ll find this laid out in Germany’s 2005 Vocational Tech Training Act (Sect. 1, Paragraph 3); Austria’s 2006 Vocational Tech Training Act modulized certain jobs (meaning the selected jobs were taught and trained for in modules, or fast-tracked pathways).

Switzerland’s cantons are in charge of all vocational based exams. (In America, we are divided into States, Swiss has cantons.) Cantons have their own government set-up, but they cannot contradict the federal confederation.

In the Netherlands, they are receiving lots of global attention in vo-tech education. Why? Their 1996 Adult and Vocational Technical Training Act * merged education and labor into 2 training tracks. One was/is school based, the other is dual workforce training (or vocational tech training). *See Point 2.4. Notice the regional vo-tech training centers.

All the countries mentioned above are using national credentialing systems. Why? The ‘big essential’ is ‘real life conditions’ can best be experienced in dual vo-tech training, not necessarily education (you’ll see that referenced on Page 30.)

Not from the German Study, but definitely related is the 2012 “Roadmap to Vocational Education and Training (VET) Systems Around the World.

Warriors, every ONE  of these are things are either already in place in America, or the framework is being laid out!! How? College and Career Readiness via ESSA, WIOA, HEA, and more!

The screen shot below is from an old article of mine on apprenticeships in America, but notice the wrench and hammer symbol.

Some of the companies here love CTE and Career Pathways. They also are unabashedly supportive of CC aligned citizens.
Study Warning Bells For Us:
  1. By government and business ‘rule’ a ‘consensus principle’will be put in place.
  2. By government and business funding, education and training, especially for jobs will be ‘easier’. But at what cost of our freedoms will this be?
  3. “Industry specific solidarity contributions”. What will these look like? Grants for apprenticeships!
  4. A merger of economics, family, and youth via integrative vocational training (Norway has had this since the mid 90s).
  5. A ‘flexible’ vocational education/training track for disadvantaged citizens.
    “Quality standards” for vocational tech training and education mean laws, not scopes and sequences we’re used to.
    Teachers and Trainers will have government controlled ‘hoops to jump through’. Their section begins on Page 52. Look for the “Ordinance on Trainer Aptitude”. Then, read what the UN (United Nations) has on this.
    Class size changes will occur. Being done away with are the large, teacher-led classes. What the shift to vo-tech training will produce (already in use in Denmark) is small ‘hubs’ or groups. These groups will spend 5 weeks at a time on one module, then switch to another. A large ‘completion logbook’ is kept on each person. This is their version of ‘personalized learning’.
    Expect more ‘education research groups’ and ‘vocational analysis’. Germany’s model has been deemed so successful because all the reform is based off ‘in-depth’ research.

Professor Dr. Dieter Euler:

I was curious as to what other reforms this German ‘expert’has been a part of.

Here’s what I found:

A) From 2006, A Swiss paper on ‘E-Learning’. A mandate for vocational training/education to be including in the SVC(Swiss Virtual Campus).
B) From 2010, Euler’s paper on developing and transitioning vocational technical training and demographics. He predicted a labor shortage by 2025. Below is the screen shot for the 2013 Journal/Report in appeared in.
youthjournal

C) In this undated McMillian Publishing proofEuler was a contributor. So was the Aspen Institute. Euler’s topic was‘Reflective Executives: A Realistic Goal for Modern Management Education’. A brief summary (Page 11) of Euler’s work reveals that ‘management education’ is more of a control tool, than it sounds.

Aspen Institute wrote on 2 different topics. One was on business and its relation to social and environmental issues, the other, “A Closer Look at Business Education: Sustainability in Curriculum”. This book was written exclusively for an audience of humanism followers.  Warriors, it’s important to note that much of the UN’s overreach into education is rooted in humanism.

D) From 2013, The Routledge Companion to International Management Education had Euler write on “Reflective Leadership: A Vision for International Management Education”. As you can see (below) ‘international management education’ is tied to the UN’s design via theGRLI (Globally Responsible  Leadership Initiative). This screen shot is a bit hard to see, so be sure to go to the link above and read it there. When you read the GRLI and related information, you’ll see international managed education is NOT about training or educating people for managerial employment, it’s about controlling education altogether!

grlieuler

Closing:

Warriors, with the process for the HEA heating up before Sen. Lamar Alexander retires, we have got to inform our representatives and senators about what they are supporting and trying to further. We are America, not Germany 2.0!  We are free Americans, not UN led-by-the-nose citizens!

With all that you’ve learned in this article about the words being used against us, you know the UN/UNESCO/GRLI attempts to fast track apprenticeships (like Citizen Schools and the German model) will be lumped in under ‘lobbyists’ and ‘special interests’.

As Democrats Subpoena White House Over “Security Issues,” Just Remember 44 House Democrats Exempted Muslim IT Spies From Background Checks

On Tuesday, The House Oversight Committee voted to authorize a subpoena for a former adjudications manager in the White House Personnel Security Office to testify behind closed doors as part of an investigation into the security clearance process of the Trump administration.  The whistleblower said the White House overturned 25 denials of security clearances.  However, not one of these Democrats raised even a peep when 44 House Democrats hired Muslim brothers as IT professionals, who turned out to be spies, and exempted them from background checks posing a serious national security issue.

As was reported on Tuesday, “Tricia Newbold, who was the adjudications manager in the White House Personnel Security Office told Cummings and a bipartisan staff that her office had issued 25 denials of security clearances that have been overturned by the White House.”

“However, the Republican staff on the committee responded to both Cummings and Newbold. The members complained that Cummings “cherrypicked” partisan information and didn’t not give ample opportunity for Republican members to respond to Newbold.”

Of course, I don’t want to belittle the allegations if there truly is a security issue here.  I should be looked at.  However, given the past two years and millions of dollars spent on a nothing burger of an investigation, one has to wonder if this isn’t the next distraction coming from House Democrats against the Trump administration.  I think it is.

Yet, not one of these Democrats on the committee voiced so much as a peep when 44 of their colleagues exempted Muslim IT spies from background checks.

Luke Rosiak reported in April 2018:

Every one of the 44 House Democrats who hired Pakistan-born IT aides who later allegedly made “unauthorized access” to congressional data appears to have chosen to exempt them from background checks, according to congressional documents.


All of them appear to have waived background checks on Imran Awan and his family members, even though the family of server administrators could collectively read all the emails and files of 1 in 5 House Democrats, and despite background checks being recommended for such positions, according to an inspector general’s report. The House security policy requires offices to fill out a form attesting that they’ve initiated background checks, but it also includes a loophole allowing them to simply say that another member vouched for them.

Among the red flags in Abid’s background were a $1.1 million bankruptcy; six lawsuits against him or a company he owned; and at least three misdemeanor convictions including for DUI and driving on a suspended license, according to Virginia court records. Public court records show that Imran and Abid operated a car dealership referred to as CIA that took $100,000 from an Iraqi government official who is a fugitive from U.S. authorities. Numerous members of the family were tied to cryptic LLCs such as New Dawn 2001, operated out of Imran’s residence, Virginia corporation records show. Imran was the subject of repeated calls to police by multiple women and had multiple misdemeanor convictions for driving offenses, according to court records.

If a screening had caught those, what officials say happened next might have been averted. The House inspector general reported on Sept. 20, 2016, that shortly before the election members of the group were logging into servers of members they didn’t work for, logging in using congressmen’s personal usernames, uploading data off the House network, and behaving in ways that suggested “nefarious purposes” and that “steps are being taken to conceal their activity.”

A pair of closely-held reports on Imran Awan, his brothers Abid and Jamal, his wife Hina Alvi, and his friend Rao Abbas, said, “the shared employees have not been vetted (e.g. background check).”

“Shared employees” means they were all hired as part-time, individual employees by individual members, cobbling together $165,000 salaries. Jamal began making that salary at only 20 years old, according to House payroll records; Abid never went to college, his stepmother said; and Rao Abbas’ most recent job experience was being fired from McDonald’s, according to his roommate. (“Whether they had formal training or not, they were trained on the job by Imran,” one of Imran’s lawyers said.)

Among the 44 employers, the primary advocate for the suspects has been Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, who introduced a bill Monday that would require background checks on Americans purchasing ammunition. “Without bullets, a gun is just a hunk of useless metal,” she said, calling ammunition the “loophole” in gun control policy.

What Do Gloria Allred & A Florida Judge Busted In A Prostitution Sting Have In Common?

What do attorney Gloria Allred and a Florida judge who was busted in a prostitution sting in 2018 have in common?  They both have apparently put a victim of rape in a very dangerous position.

I’ve been telling you the story of Deanna Williams, a single mother with multiple sclerosis who was the victim of rape in 2009.  Without going into all the details in this piece, I will simply post links to the previous articles on what has been an ongoing case in which she has lost virtually everything after settling with the man she accused in 2012.

For more on Williams’ allegations, along with the text of the agreement between Allred and Williams in a retainer agreement, please see “Rape Victim Claims Gloria Allred Failed To Honor Agreement – Now She Faces Threats Of Arrest & Judgments Of Over $1 Million.

That will present the information of the situation that Williams is involved in currently where she is no longer under threat of arrest, but is actively being pursued by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office due to something that the judge earlier in the case presided over.

That judge was Judge Jay B. Rosman.  Rosman became part of the case in mid to late 2015.  Less than a year later, he would have an order of his overturned as those pursuing Ms. Williams for what is now over $1 million were found to be without any evidence to preserve her assets, and the trial court had made several legal errors in its order to do so.

As I pointed out previously, Florida Second District Court of Appeals Judge Edward C. LaRose ruled that the plaintiffs in the case had no standing and that there was no evidence provided to substantiate their claims against Ms. Williams.

He wrote:

Appellees did not file a charging lien in the personal injury lawsuit.3 Instead, they instituted a new action against appellants. Pursuing a quantum meruit theory of recovery, they claim entitlement to some portion of the settlement proceeds for their efforts on Ms. Williams’ behalf. To forestall the further disbursement of settlement funds held by the Heller law firm, appellees filed a motion to preserve assets. They submitted no verified pleadings or affidavits in support of the motion. The trial court referred the motion to a magistrate who heard argument on the motion. No party presented evidence. Appellees feared that, absent a freeze of the funds, they might be unable to secure any meaningful relief if they succeeded on their quantum meruit claim. Appellees argued that appellants had a duty to disgorge any fees and to return any disbursed funds because they had been on notice of a charging lien. Appellants noted that appellees never filed a charging lien. Appellants also maintained that appellees were asking for the entry of a temporary injunction without an evidentiary hearing or bond.

The magistrate recommended that the trial court grant the motion to preserve assets, finding that:

Any assets presently in the custody of Law Offices of Jonathan A. Heller, P.A., derived from, or related to, their representation of Deanna Williams should be frozen, withheld and not distributed or spent. An order protecting the assets is designed not to allow wasting of assets nor permit harm to any party. The final determination of whether or not the frozen funds should be released should be made after the trial of the cause.

The trial court adopted the magistrate’s report and recommendation and entered the order now before us.

Though Judge LaRose acknowledged the plaintiffs pursuing Ms. Williams did seek relief, he clearly points out above that they provided zero evidence for why that relief should be granted.

He then went on to make the legal arguments why the plaintiffs had no standing citing several cases prior.

Then, Judge LaRose wrote a reversal of the order citing utterly embarrassing actions of Judge Rosman’s court.

“Neither the order nor the magistrate’s report and recommendation recite sufficient factual findings to show us that appellees satisfied each element needed for entry of a temporary injunction,” the judge stated.  “On this basis, alone, we must reverse and remand for further proceedings. See Randolph, 903 So.2d 384 (Fla. 2d DCA 2005). It appears to us that there were disputed issues of fact between the parties. Yet, to our knowledge, neither the magistrate nor the trial court held an evidentiary hearing. Thus, substantial, competent evidence was not provided to establish entitlement to a temporary injunction.”

“We must also note that Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.610(b) requires that a bond be set for the issuance of a temporary injunction,” the judge added.  “The trial court did not require a bond. This, too, was error.  Because the trial court committed legal error in granting the motion to preserve assets, we reverse and remand for further proceedings.”

Now, this really should have made things come to a halt.  In fact, they should have come to a halt before it began.  According to documents in the case, which the public can view at LeeClerk.org, which the plaintiffs in the case filed well over a year after Ms. Williams reached a settlement with attorney Allred, they admit that they never filed any charged attorney liens.

The plaintiffs in the case claim that they served notices of charging liens for attorneys’ fees and costs related to Ms. Williams civil rape case, but they admit, “These notices were not filed with the Court.”

Understand, that plaintiffs did have communication with Williams’ attorneys regarding fees, but they never filed those liens with the court and that is an admission they made in the court record that was filed on 11/19/2013.

With that said, Judge Rosman enters the picture in 2015, just about a year before Judge LaRose’s ruling.  It’s clear from reports that Judge Rosman was engaging in unlawful activity with prostitutes and yet, presiding over many cases, including this case, which was the result of a sex crime.  Does anyone think this is a conflict of interest?

News-Press.com reported in February 2018:

Rosman and five other men were arrested Friday following a Naples Police Department prostitution operation.

Rosman pleaded not guilty, waived his arraignment and asked for a jury trial.

Chief Judge Michael T. McHugh will preside over Rosman’s docket, Miles said.

Rosman was one of three high-profile arrests in that operation, including a pastor and a Broadway actor

Rosman, 64, is also accused of resisting arrest.

Naples police say Rosman allegedly made contact with an undercover officer via phone and arranged to meet at a hotel. He agreed to pay $300 for a sexual act but instead was placed under arrest. He began to resist but officers were able to gain control and handcuffed Rosman.

Rosman sent a letter to then-Governor Rick Scott announcing his resignation on February 13, 2018.

In March 2018, it was reported that he agreed to deferred prosecution in the charges against him in the prostitution ring sting.  What happened to Rosman?  He didn’t even get a slap on the wrist, more like a tickle and a wink.

Rosman agreed to the following program:
– six months supervision with early termination when all conditions are met
– pay $1,000 fine with half going to the drug court program and that other half to a DCF trust fund
– pay $50 for cost of prosecution
– attend an AIDs workshop/STD screening
– complete the ‘More to Life Restorative Justice Program’ about the negative effects of prostitution/human trafficking

This came just months after he used the court overseeing the interception of $200,000 of Ms. Williams money by her attorney and then only giving Ms. Williams 50% of it back while giving the other $100,000 to the man Judge Rosman allowed to be substituted in place of plaintiff Michael Dolce, Scott Mager.  Though the substitution of Mager Paruas cited Florida Law (Schmidt v Mueller), as best I can tell, that case cited involved a man who had an interest in a case and because he started his own company, he merely substituted the company, which was his, for his name as a plaintiff.  Mager of Mager and Paruas was never a part of the original rape case.  So, how he or Mager Paruas had any interest in this ongoing lawsuit is beyond me.  The only connection was Dolce and Dolce didn’t begin working for Mager Paruas until after this case had begun.

Calls to Mager Paruas for comment have gone unreturned, something that Ms. Williams also faced as a court deadline approached last month.

Other cases were put under scrutiny immediately following Judge Rosman’s arrest.  Keep in mind, this judge has been on the bench for three decades!

I ask you, why is there no scrutiny in this case of every single one of Judge Rosman’s rulings that has deprived Ms. Williams of time, and hundreds of thousands of dollars, not to mention she is now being sought for arrest?  Again, where is Governor Ron DeSantis?  Where is Attorney General Ashley Moody?  Where is the Florida Bar besides simply assigning a Bar investigator to Ms. Williams for a complaint?

Williams is in physical danger due to complication she had with a pregnancy and the stress has only piled onto that, and she can find no attorney to help her without a huge retainer, which she would gladly pay if her money had not been taken from her.

This brings us right back to Ms. Allred.  As I pointed out, The Washington Standard reached out to Ms. Allred for comment.  Though we have the text of her retainer agreement that agrees to pay all previous attorney fees, which would have resulted in this years-long case even beginning, they apparently weren’t, and now Ms. Williams has been judged, wrongly I might add, for over $1 million to the plaintiffs under another Flordia judge.  Ms. Allred has written to The Washington Standard to state nothing more than, “Any legal problems that Ms. Williams faces has nothing to do with our representation of her and there is no factual basis for the assertions set forth in your email.”

Read for yourself the retainer agreement and the history here and you see if you don’t think it has everything to do with all the legal problems that Ms. Williams faces today.

Ms. Williams is in need of medical care, but cannot seek it.  She has no money.  She is in need of an attorney to represent her, but a good attorney in a civil matter like this requires a $15,000 retainer fee, which she does not possess.  If you read my first report, you will see that Ms. Williams had criminal actions against her by one of her attorneys who also failed to represent her which resulted in a judgment against her and negligence or purposed fraud committed against her by another attorney she acquired.

When is someone going to step forward, put the brakes on all of this and settle this matter fairly and justly in the light of day with proper representation for Ms. Williams?  Furthermore, when will someone come forward from the Florida Bar and actually begin the investigation into the allegations of malpractice, fraud and theft in the matter?

We can’t make America great again if we don’t stand up for the weak against injustice.  Who knows when you will need someone to stand up for you!

List Of Major Corporations Who Oppose Your Right To Keep & Bear Arms

Last year, we asked the question, “Should Major Corporations Be Influencing Gun Control?”  The problem here is when major, private companies have centralized control. In a free market, corporations should be able to do what they want. If you don’t like it, you support a competitor. But that’s not the system we have in the U.S.  Instead, it’s a system where cronyism has allowed a few large corporations to have massive control, and there are huge hurdles to anyone trying to create an alternative.  With that in mind, Here’s a list of 25 corporations who are attacking your right to keep and bear arms.

Gunpowder Magazine provides this list:

Amazon Web Services
Amazon restricted user access to codeisfreespeech.com,, where users could access blueprints for making guns with a 3D printer.

Avis and Budget Car Rentals
Avis and Budget ended its participation in the NRA rewards program in March 2018.

Bank of America
Bank of America said in April it would stop financing manufacturers that make military-inspired firearms for civilians, such as AR-15s.

Buffalo Wild Wings
“In 2009, [Buffalo Wild Wings] announced a blanket no-gun policy at all of its locations,” ConservativeReview.com reports.

Citi Bank
Citi Bank told its retail business partners to prohibit the sale of firearms to customers younger than 21 and to those who have not passed a background check.

Chipotle
In 2014, Chipotle asked that customers not bring guns into its restaurants because “the display of firearms in our restaurants has now created an environment that is potentially intimidating or uncomfortable for many of our customers.”

Craigslist
Craiglist’s user policy prohibits weapons; firearms/guns and components; BB/pellet, stun, and spear guns; etc., ammunition, clips, cartridges, reloading materials, gunpowder, fireworks, and explosives.

Delta Airlines
Delta tweeted in February 2018 that it was ending the NRA’s contract for discounted rates and “requesting that the NRA remove our information from their website.”

Dick’s Sporting Goods/Field & Stream
The chain store enacted a new policy in 2018 that halted the sale of so-called “assault-style weapons” in their Field & Stream stores. The company announced it would destroy all the weapons pulled from its shelves. Dick’s CEO has since announced sales are down, and they may have to close the Field & Stream line of stores.

Enterprise Holdings (Alamo, Enterprise, and National)
Enterprise ended its discount program with the NRA amid the #BoycottNRA movement of 2018.

Facebook
Facebook prohibits ads that “promote the sale or use of weapons, ammunition, or explosives. This includes ads for weapon modification accessories.”

L.L. Bean no longer sells guns or ammo to people under the age of 21.

Reddit
Reddit updated its policies to forbid “[soliciting] or [facilitating]” transactions involving firearms, including “gun sales, drug sales, prostitution, stolen goods, personal information, and counterfeit official documents.”

REI
“The Seattle-based outdoor retailer said March 1 [2018] that it was halting future orders of some popular brands — including CamelBak water carriers, Giro helmets and Camp Chef stoves — whose parent company, Vista Outdoor, also makes assault-style rifles,” The Los Angeles Times reported.

Shopify
Shopify changed its user policy to prohibit the sale of certain firearms and accessories. Retailers who use the platform say this move will likely cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Starbucks
Starbucks published an open letter in 2013 from its CEO asking patrons not to bring firearms into Starbucks stores or seating areas.

Target
Target issued a statement in 2014 saying, “Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create. Starting today we will also respectfully request that guests not bring firearms to Target – even in communities where it is permitted by law.”

Toms Shoes
Toms announced it will use $5 million to advance universal background checks.

Twitter
Twitter’s user policy says it “prohibits the promotion of weapons and weapon accessories globally.”

Wyndham Hotel Group
Wyndham ended its affiliation with the NRA amidst pressure from the gun control lobby.

YouTube
YouTube curtailed content intending to sell firearms or provide instructions on firearm manufacturing.

Many of the corporations listed above are actively working to change the social perception about the right to keep and bear arms.  In other words, they are using their corporate status to propagandize the people against the law, the US Constitution.  Perhaps it’s time to rethink just granting corporate status indefinitely and start reining that status in every few years to keep them from having so much power.

Additionally, in the past, we have also listed a plethora of big banks that are also targeting guns, gun dealers and gun owners.

Finally, following the Parkland incident in 2018, a number of businesses cut off their relationship with Second Amendment advocates at the National Rifle Association.  These included:

Citizen Schools: Expanding The Beast’s Indoctrination To The Entire Community

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, as we know, there are 24 hours in one day/night cycle. Nothing we can do will expand that or increase it.

So, anytime the CCSS Machine brings up some cockeyed education scheme about ‘expanding time’ it means one thing: you start earlier in your student’s lives. As in younger ages/younger grades. We know ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) embedded universal preschool, in-home visits for ‘student success and family engagement’, as well as ‘community alignment’ to ensure all children are college/career ready.

babyessa-300x240

We know that, thanks to ESSA, several groups have access to our kids in public schools, but also all those OTHER schooled kids, too. How? After school programs, libraries, museums, or ‘anywhere at anytime’  via digitally driven content. Even if we don’t agree or support these groups agendas, because it can be connected to education (no matter how relevant or not), our kids are accessible.

So, have you heard about ‘Citizen School’? Look below, you won’t see ‘expanded learning time’, but it is one of their ’causes’. The others? STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math), national service, and middle schools. (*Note: if you are familiar with the UN/UNESCO SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), you’ll notice that some of the same colors used there are used here. There is actually a color psychology in the use of the colors and their meanings.)  Why would I bring this up? STEM is the ‘educational change agent for education’!

citizenschool

Warriors, Citizen Schools has the national financial support from several CCSS Machine member groups, including our federal government. Gates, Google, Dell, Cisco, AT & T, and, Bank of America are a few I know you’ll easily recognize. However, there are several more groups, foundations, and government entities funding this. Be sure to scroll all the way down the page.

So what DOES a “Citizen School” do? Who teaches? How long has this been around?

csgoal

Basically, WarriorsCitizen Schools use everyday citizens to teach. Some appear to be licensed or credentialed, as the CCSS Machine phrases it. As a non-profit, the Schools also partner with existing school districts, community groups, and all related entities. This portion expands the school to the entire community.

Add to that the ‘expanded time learning’, and you’ll see fast-tracked apprenticeships for skill-based education, exclusively in STEM fields. (Would you believe 10 weeks?)

****Warriors, we’ll return to Citizen Schools, but first, look at the connections you can make to the shift in education.****

1) From the National Association to Advance CTE (Career Tech Education)STEM is also woven throughout every one of the 16 Career Clusters (aka: Career Tracks, Career Paths):

careerstem
(Source, added emphasis is mine)

2) From FL Polytechnic University, the STEM Career Guide gives you the old name of a job title and its STEM makeover name. For example, a civil engineer has been rebranded to become an architectural engineer.

3) Since STEM is the UN’s (United Nations’s) education change agent you’ll find other countries are expanding STEM learning. Look below at what Canada has for grades 5 to college/career via STEM Village:

stemvillage

3a) You may wish to see the STEM Village’s Teachers page, where their version of ‘speeding up’ learning is displayed. On their blog, nothing but PBL (project-based learning, another global education tool) and ways to introduce your child to STEM. The four men who created STEM Village are not found on the website. I did find them on AngelList, however. Doug Walker, Kevin McCafferty, Mark Applebaum, and James Lowe.

3b) STEM Village corporate partners are TribalWorldwide(of DDB, a global advertising agency) and JAM (a Canada based marketing firm). Among JAM’s biggest clients? MasterCard (a huge CCSS Machine member group.)

3c) Tribal Worldwide has been honored by AT & T (a major contributor to STEM and CCSS. You’ll also find AT & T financially supports Citizen Schools, too.) Why would we need to know this? The Tribal Worldwide group has offices all over the United States.

***Some thoughts and questions, Warriors.

If you scroll back up to the STEM Village picture and read the part about the parents’ role in education, did you notice the shift? It isn’t about parents nurturing their children, it’s about the parents steering their children to a particular education style and track. Not for their personal gain, but an ECONOMIC gain!

Consider ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act)  and some of its mandates for family engagement are geared off of‘student success’. That’s why we’re seeing family in-home visits. Folded into the mandates are family assessments for student engagement; there’s community-wide accountability for students, too. This all EXPANDS control of the student by the GOVERNMENT, not the parents! Also, part of the ESSA mandates is an expansion in STEM teachers for STEM education.
Warriors, we also have federal and State legislation seeking to expand ESSA’s powers over the parents!

That’s right, HR 804 states that parents are to assist in the carrying out of a student’s success plan. Do you see the overreach? The federal government will assign the parent an assisting role in their child’s life?! This is huge, my followers!

stempipeCitizen Schools, Part Two:

Warriors, we left off with Citizen Schools where the community’s role in education was expanded. What about the learning time expansion? According to the website, ELT (Expanded Learning Time) has helped ‘pave a road to success’ for students. Especially those who struggle or are in low-performing schools. Look below:

cselt
(Source, added emphasis is mine)

Warriors, if you see it above, notice, that the ELTinformation isn’t very in-depth, but it does gloat about expanding math learning time by 3 months. However, when you realize the ELT’s goal isn’t really academics, it makes that 3 months ‘expansion’ pretty worthless.

A working link to the Abt Associates Study can be found here.

The Citizen Schools blog article about the Study is here (*Note the partnership of Transforming Education, that’s another CCSS Machine group with financial support from Gates, Stone Foundation (also funds Citizen Schools) and others.)

If you’d like a more descriptive understanding of ELT, go here. (*Note: the biggest road block, according to this description is the lack of school district funding, hence why we are seeing more and more P3s, public private partnerships, in education.)

csroad
*Note: you can find the original ‘road map’ on the “Impact” page of Citizen Schools’ website.)

If you’d like to see the Citizen Schools 20th Anniversary Report, you can access that here. Be sure to read the historical timeline.

Warriors
, I’m not sure about you, but I believe the Citizen Schools website and program is lots and lots of educratic cow chips dressed up as magical time expansion for all.  The only thing truly expanded is control over citizens for a pre-determined path to work for the CCSS Machine.

 

Closing:

Warriors, my next article will show you the German model being adapted worldwide (yes, America’s well on its way already) that also steps right in line with the Citizen Schools.

If you ever understood America is being leveled to become like every other country in government, education, and citizenry, this will be the ONE to read!

The American Old West: How Hollywood Made It “Wild” to Make Money & Advance Gun Control

Hollywood has a clever way of distorting our perspective on history, and a great example of this is Western film – a movie genre we’ve all come to love. Cattle rustlers, guns blazing, outlaws running loose, and vigilantes dishing out vengeance indiscriminately. These scenes have become more synonymous with the American Frontier than Winchester and their “Cartridge That Won the West.” But these fictional tales have produced more than entertainment for over a century; they’ve also contributed to an ongoing, subtle push for gun control, all while making Hollywood millions.

Revisionist history books tell us that the “Wild West” was an anarchic period of time that was not conducive to human prosperity. Images of a Hobbesian nightmare – a life that is brutish and short – are ingrained in our consciousness thanks to decades of public schooling and violent images on the silver screen which are light on actual history and heavy on creative license.

However, individuals who believe in liberty and developing their critical thinking faculties should be skeptical of most mainstream narratives regarding history, especially American history. After all, these narratives, by and large, have been created by Hollywood, a legacy institution that has historically advanced politically correct content with the support of Washington in order to perpetuate the cultural status quo.

When the curtain of political correctness that’s been draped over this particular period of history is pulled back, we see a much more nuanced picture of the American Frontier. In fact, research by historians such as Peter J. HillRichard ShenkmanRoger D. McGrathTerry Anderson, and W. Eugene Holland shows that this period was rather indicative of a “not so wild, Wild West.”

For the purposes of this article, the Wild West will now be referred to as the Old West. This is by no means a pedantic distinction, but rather an acknowledgment of the fact that this time period was not “wild” by any stretch of the imagination when compared to other chaotic periods in human history. Indeed, the Old West had its fair share of challenges for American settlers. But as we’ll see below, crafty settlers found ways through ingenuity and mutual cooperation – all done with very limited state interference – to create a stable order for generations to come.

So let us delve into the “not so wild, Wild West.”

The Not-So-Violent West

West World: How Hollywood Misrepresents the Old West to Make Money & Advance Gun ControlThe Old West was not a paradise by any stretch of the imagination. There existed conflict between groups, such as American settlers and Native American tribes, once they came in contact in the Great Plains and other parts of the frontier. This was natural due to the cultural differences that existed between these groups and the lack of defined property rights in those regions.

However, in more settled towns on the frontier, there was not as much violence as the Hollywood flicks would like you to believe. One of the most important texts disrupting this depiction of the Old West was W. Eugene Hollon’s Frontier Violence: Another Look. Hollon argued that “the Western frontier was a far more civilized, more peaceful, and safer place than American society is today.” Additionally, historian Richard Shenkman makes the case that the popular depictions of the Old West belong more in a movie script rather than a real-life historical account.

Shenkman noted:

“Many more people have died in Hollywood Westerns than ever died on the real Frontier.”

Dodge City has become a landmark for Western movies, but its portrayal is more fiction than reality. Shenkman also dismantled the Dodge City myth:

“In the real Dodge City, for example, there were just five killings in 1878, the most homicidal year in the little town’s Frontier history: scarcely enough to sustain a typical two-hour movie.”

Larry Schweikart of the University of Dayton also pointed out that the infamous bank robberies that captivate movie audiences were not very frequent. His research uncovered that there were fewer than a dozen bank robberies in the frontier West from 1859 to 1900. In essence, Schweikart argues that there are “more bank robberies in modern-day Dayton, Ohio, in a year than there were in the entire Old West in a decade, perhaps in the entire frontier period.”

Arguably, the strongest and most concise text reclaiming the true history of the American West, Terry L. Anderson and Peter J Hill’s The Not So Wild, Wild West has forever changed the way Americans view the American Frontier. Anderson and Hill’s research found that the establishment of property rights was key in taming the American West. Indeed, this process took time, but it was well worth it. The Old West was a demonstration of human ingenuity and long-term planning that eschewed the quick fixes of modern-day politics.

In mining-related matters, American settlers found ways to peacefully adjudicate disputes, which Anderson and Hill noted:

“In the absence of formal government, miners in a particular location would gather and hammer out rules for peacefully establishing claims and resolving disputes over them.”

The authors went as far as to say that the “rules that govern western mining and mineral rights evolved literally from the ground up.” These developments in the Old West were no trivial occurrences, they set the stage for even bigger developments that the authors note below:

“Not only did the miners pave the way for mineral rights throughout the West, but they laid the foundation for western water law.”

This manner of peacefully settling property rights disputes carried over into other sectors, such as ranching and farming. There were obviously various roadblocks at the start, but settlers still found free-market ways of getting around these obstacles. In sum, Anderson and Hill’s findings demonstrated that the Old West was not so chaotic:

“In the mining camps and on the open range, the six-gun seldom served as the arbiter of disputes. Instead, miners established rules in camp meetings, and cattlemen used their associations to carve up the range, round up their cattle, and enforce brand registration. Though not all attempts at dispute resolution succeeded, institutional entrepreneurs found ways to define and enforce property rights that created, rather than destroyed, wealth. In short, the West was really not so wild.”

Such scenes of mutual cooperation on a voluntary basis are almost unheard of in today’s political climate. For many busybody politicians, all meaningful economic activity must be conducted under government supervision. As a matter of fact, had any of the problems in the Old West surfaced in present times, there would be instant calls for the government to step in and try to fix things. Once the unintended consequences of these interventions set in, the same calls for more government “help” would come back to life.

Thankfully, our forebears were much wiser in the late 19th century. By maintaining a relatively hands-off approach, the federal government allowed the unsettled American Frontier to naturally tame itself through the voluntary cooperation of settlers.

Understanding Violence in the American West

West World: How Hollywood Misrepresents the Old West to Make Money & Advance Gun ControlThe most infamous images of the American West always consist of scenes of extreme violence and vigilante justice. Many history books have implanted in the minds of millions of students that gratuitous violence was a normal way of life in the American Frontier. It also does not help that Hollywood’s greatest Western films were laden with epic shootouts and cliche conflicts between outlaws and law enforcement.

Although there are some slivers of truth in these depictions of the American West, they tend to be exaggerated. Since the 1970s, a wide array of literature has challenged these common assumptions.

In Gunfighters, Highwaymen, and Vigilantes, historian Roger McGrath looked at notable western cities in California, Bodie and Aurora, to see how they stacked up to modern cities as far as crime rates were concerned. McGrath provided some context to famous scenes of bank robberies in the Old West:

“Next to stagecoach robbery, bank robbery is probably the form of robbery most popularly associated with the frontier West. Yet, although Aurora and Bodie together boasted several banks, no bank robbery was ever attempted. Most of the bankers were armed, as were their employees, and a robber would have run a considerable risk of being killed.”

Armed citizens also deterred the robbery of individuals, while armed homeowners and merchants discouraged the burglary of homes and businesses. So it’s clear America’s long established gun culture and civic responsibility of providing defense transitioned quite seamlessly to the American frontier.

McGrath provided some interesting statistics on robberies in Aurora and Bodie:

“Between 1877 and 1883, there were only 32 burglaries – 17 of homes and 15 of businesses – in Bodie. Again, Aurora seems to have had fewer still. At least a half dozen attempted burglaries in Bodie were thwarted by the presence of armed citizens.”

The historian then compares these numbers to American cities:

“Bodie’s five-year total of 32 burglaries converts to an average of 6.4 burglaries a year and gives the town a burglary rate of 128 on the FBI scale. In 1980 Miami had a burglary rate of 3,282, New York 2,661, Los Angeles 2,602, San Francisco-Oakland 2,267, Atlanta 2,210 and Chicago 1,241. The Grand Forks, North Dakota, rate of 566, and the Johnstown, Pennsylvania, rate of 587 were lowest among U.S. cities. The rate for the United States as a whole was 1,668, or thirteen times that for Bodie.”

Even general theft was not much of a problem in cities like Bodie:

“Bodie’s forty-five instances of theft give it a theft rate of 180. In 1980 Miami had a theft rate of 5,452, San Francisco-Oakland 4,571, Atlanta 3,947, Los Angeles 3,372, New York 3,369, and Chicago 3,206. Lowest theft rates among U.S. cities were those of Steubenville, Ohio, at 916, and Johnstown, Pennsylvania, at 972. The rate for the United States as a whole was 3,156, more than seventeen times that for Bodie.”

McGrath came to several powerful conclusions when observing Aurora and Bodie’s robbery rates:

“Institutions of law enforcement and justice certainly were not responsible for the low rates of robbery, burglary, and theft. Rarely were any of the perpetrators of these types of crime arrested, and even less often were they convicted.”

In McGrath’s view, armed citizens were the key factor behind low burglary rates:

“The citizens themselves, armed with various types of firearms and willing to kill to protect their persons or property, were evidently the most important deterrent to larcenous crime.”

West World: How Hollywood Misrepresents the Old West to Make Money & Advance Gun ControlThis is consistent with findings that gun researcher John Lott uncovered in More Guns Less Crime when he analyzed states that liberalized gun laws during the 1980s and 1990s. Many of these states witnessed substantial decreases in robberies when citizens were allowed to not only defend their homes, but also carry firearms for self defense.

As far as rape was concerned, women were virtually safe from all occurrences of rape in Aurora and Bodie:

“Aurora’s and Bodie’s records of no rapes and thus rape rates of zero were not matched by nineteenth-century Boston or Salem. From 1880 through 1882, Boston had a rape arrest rate of 3.0 and Salem 4.8. A conversion factor of 2.6 – a figure consistent with FBI data in 1980 – gives the towns rape rates of 7.8 and 12.5. Nor are Aurora’s and Bodie’s rates matched by any U.S. city today, although in 1980 Johnsontown, Pennsylvania, had a rate of only 5.7.”

McGrath did concede that homicide rates were indeed high in the Old West, but there was a caveat – these cases of homicide were confined to fights between willing combatants, i.e., duels, as was common during this period where “honor culture” prevailed.

McGrath explained:

“While the carrying of guns probably reduced the incidence of robbery, burglary, and theft, it undoubtedly increased the number of homicides. Although a couple of homicides resulted from beatings and a few from stabbings, the great majority resulted from shootings.”

When we think about it, this makes sense. Firearms are very effective tools in dishing out legal damage. Guns did facilitate homicides, but McGrath argued that there was some nuance to this:

“The citizens of Aurora and Bodie were generally not troubled by the great number of killings, nor were they very upset because only one man was ever convicted by the courts of murder or manslaughter. They accepted the killings and the lack of convictions because those killed, with only a few exceptions, had been willing combatants, and many of them were roughs or badmen. The old, the weak, the female, the innocent, and those unwilling to fight were rarely the targets of attacks. But when they were attacked – murdered – the reaction of the citizens was immediate and came in the form of vigilantism.”

Even in a relatively anarchic environment like the American Frontier, there was a tendency for society to police itself in some shape or form. When the weak were attacked, citizens in these towns responded in vigilante fashion, but McGrath showed it was not as chaotic as people think:

“Contrary to the popular image of vigilantes as an angry, unruly mob, the vigilantes in both Aurora and Bodie displayed military-like organization and discipline and went about their work in a quiet, orderly, and deliberate manner.”

All in all, McGrath concluded that the violence we see in major urban centers today bears very little resemblance to violence in the American West:

“The violence and lawlessness that visited the trans-Sierra frontier most frequently and affected it most deeply, then, took special forms: warfare between Indians and whites, stagecoach robbery, vigilantism, and gunfights. These activities bear little or no relation to the violence and lawlessness that pervade American society today. Serious juvenile offenses, crimes against the elderly and weak, rape, robbery, burglary, and theft were either nonexistent or of little significance on the trans-Sierra frontier. If the trans-Sierra frontier was at all representative of frontiers in general, then there seems to be little justification for blaming contemporary American violence and lawlessness on a frontier heritage.”

Because of nearly a century’s worth of historical misinformation spread in popular culture and schools, Americans have been led to believe that the American Frontier was the violent period in American history. On the other hand, progressive urban centers like Chicago and Washington, D.C. are held up as enlightened cosmopolitan hubs, when in fact, they have witnessed crime sprees in recent decades that were unheard of in other points of American history. These cities are in political jurisdictions that feature stringent gun control like universal background checks and make it nearly impossible for citizens to acquire firearms.

And it’s more than just the guns. These areas are already filled with a bevy of socialist policies like public schooling, minimum wage laws, and subsidized housing that create sub-optimal socio-economic outcomes. On top of that, many urban centers have questionable policing practices and criminal justice policies that don’t effectively apprehend criminals, nor prevent them from reverting back to their criminal ways once they’re back in normal society. In turn, many individuals resort to crime in these cities as a way of making a living. Adding gun control into the mix just makes things even worse.

Northfield, Minnesota vs. Tombstone, Arizona: A Tale of Gun Rights vs. Gun Control

West World: How Hollywood Misrepresents the Old West to Make Money & Advance Gun ControlAny proud gun owner should celebrate when an armed citizen steps up to defend himself against criminals. Researchers like Gary Kleck point to over 2 million cases of individuals using firearms in self defense. This is no recent phenomenon though.

Law-abiding citizens standing up to criminals actually occurred on numerous occasions during the Old West. The most notable case was the failed bank robbery attempt conducted by the James-Younger Gang in Northfield, Minnesota.

The James-Younger Gang gained national notoriety for waltzing into towns and coming out with all the loot through well-orchestrated robberies. With so many robberies under their belts, their next robbery attempt in the sleepy town of Northfield, Minnesota seemed like a walk in the park. On the fateful day of September 7, 1876, the gang of outlaws would be in for a rude awakening once they entered Northfield.

The last thing these criminals expected was an armed citizenry that was willing to stand up against their devious schemes. As the outlaws proceeded to carry out their robbery, Northfield’s citizens quickly realized what was going on. Instead of turning to law enforcement, they took matters into their own hands.

The armed citizens of Northfield fired back at the outlaws and successfully killed several members of the James-Younger Gang. This incident had its fair share of tragedy when members of the James-Younger Gang killed the First National Bank’s cashier Joseph Lee Heywood and Swedish immigrant Nicholas Gustafson. However, these deaths were not in vain.

After the smoke cleared, the rest of the James-Younger Gang bolted out of Northfield, which marked one of the biggest reversals in Jesse James’ criminal career. From there, James lost considerable prestige as a criminal and would later be murdered by one of his partners in crime, Robert Ford, in 1882.

Despite the chaotic nature of the Northfield incident, armed civilians made a positive difference to thwart this criminal act. Had these citizens been disarmed, Jesse James and company would have made their way out of town with a cool wad of cash. This is definitely one story American students won’t find in their history textbooks.

Gun Control Could Not Save Tombstone

West World: How Hollywood Misrepresents the Old West to Make Money & Advance Gun ControlAlthough the Old West was marked by high degrees of freedom, especially when compared to present times, it still had pockets of gun control throughout certain regions.

Take the example of the infamous O.K. Corral standoff. This shooting has become legend throughout American folklore and an integral part of Hollywood Western movies. However, there is much more to this story than meets the eye. When we look past the dramatic effects and scruffy gunslingers, we see a much more nuanced picture of this event.

What many people don’t realize is that the O.K. Corral shootout took place during a dispute over gun control legislation in Tombstone, Arizona. According to an 1881 law, it was “unlawful to carry in the hand or upon the person or otherwise any deadly weapon within the limits of Tombstone, without first obtaining a permit in writing.”

This law, however, did not deter the outlaw gang of Ike Clanton, Billy Clanton, Tom McLaury, Frank McLaury, and Billy Claiborne. For them, criminal behavior like cattle smuggling and horse thievery was a way of life. No law was going to stop them – above all, Tombstone’s gun control ordinance.

The gang of outlaws were ready to up the ante with their criminal behavior once they set foot in Tombstone. From the get go, they encountered resistance from the Earp brothers – Virgil, Morgan, and Wyatt – and Doc Holliday, who were ready to stop these outlaws in their tracks. The law enforcers even demanded that the bandits hand over their guns. But much to the law enforcers’ dismay, the outlaws could not have cared less about Tombstone’s gun control laws and continued to disobey them like any seasoned band of criminals would do.

Eventually, this conflict escalated when both sides drew their firearms and engaged in an explosive shootout. Once the smoke cleared, three of the outlaws died during this confrontation. Thankfully for the citizens of Tombstone, there was an armed law enforcement presence to push back against the outlaws. However, this just goes to show that laws are not enough to prevent criminals from committing heinous acts. Armed individuals are ultimately the best first responders againsts criminals.

Gun control laws like those in Tombstone were not the norm in the American Frontier. That being said, there is still a valuable lesson behind this experience – gun control legislation will not magically make criminal activity nor gun violence go away. Even in a not-too-distant past, gun control legislation could not stop criminals.

Why the Amersican West Matters

West World: How Hollywood Misrepresents the Old West to Make Money & Advance Gun ControlIn sum, the Old West has not received a proper historical assessment that is free of Hollywood dramatization and pro-government bias. Advocates of gun rights and other facets of limited government would be wise to closely examine the history of the American Frontier and restore it to its proper place. The United States is currently in a narrative war of sorts, where advocates of Progressivism will distort historical events to advance their agenda.

The misleading depiction of the Old West is a historical sleight hand that not only advances false history, but also associates foundational freedoms such as gun rights with sprees of violence that never even existed. That’s why it’s so important to think critically and do thorough historical research. Gun rights have historically served Americans well, providing them a means of defense against violent criminals while checking the state from embracing all-out tyranny as witnessed in present-day Venezuela.

We must remember that it’s not those who have the right ideas who win. It’s those who create the most compelling narratives who come out on top. Political outcomes are ultimately valued neutral. The forces of good are not always guaranteed victory.

Americans have been misled about capitalism, Americans have been misled about the New Deal, and it’s become clear they’ve also been subject to many falsehoods about the Old West. History departments across America by and large have failed in providing their students with the right material to understand our country’s most cherished political practices. When institutions of higher learning drop the ball, it’s incumbent upon us to defend our history and culture by stepping up to ensure America has “an alert and knowledgeable citizenry” as President Eisenhower famously remarked. Learning the true story of the American Old West is one step in that direction.

State Passes Bill To Seize Guns Based on Entirely ‘Unchallenged’ Accusations, With NO Due Process

In February of 2018, after the tragic shooting in Parkland, FL, President Donald Trump took to national television to betray his oath to the Constitution and his supporters and famously said, “take the guns first, go through due process second.” While this was largely ignored by his base and downplayed in the media, since then—that’s exactly what’s been happening.

As politicians and anti-gun rights activists continuously chant, “we don’t want to take your guns,” behind the scenes — in only the year — politicians have been working overtime to limit your right to bear arms.

In just the first six months after the shooting in Parkland and the president’s statement, the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence recorded a whopping 55 new gun control measures in 26 states. That number is now far greater as states pass “red flag” gun laws to literally do what Trump advocated for in Feb. 2018. They are taking the guns first and seeking due process second.

Colorado just became the 15th state to pass such a law and if it is signed by the governor—which it will be—Colorado citizens will be subject to laws which allow their guns to be seized without them having any say in it whatsoever.

Citizens who are targeted by the law will be deemed guilty first and only after their guns are taken, will they have a chance to defend themselves in court. This is the de facto removal of due process.

As Reuters reports, under the legislation, a family member or law enforcement officer could petition a judge to seize firearms from a person they think is a threat to themselves or others. The judge could then hold a hearing without the targeted person being present and grant a temporary order for 14 days.

Under the fifth and fourteenth amendments, due process clauses are in place to act as a safeguard from arbitrary denial of life, liberty, or property by the government outside the sanction of law.

In spite of what officials and the media claim, when a person is stripped of their constitutional rights, albeit temporarily, without being given the chance to make their own case based on what can be entirely arbitrary accusations, this is the removal of due process. This is exactly what is happening in Colorado.

This new law is so egregious that even the National Rifle Association (NRA) is speaking out, despite their silence in the face of other “red flag” laws.

“Unchallenged statements made by a petitioner before a judge … would be sufficient for law enforcement to enter that person’s home and confiscate their private property,” the  NRA said in a statement.

What’s more, the overwhelming majority of elected sheriffs in the state—50 out of 62—have been outspoken against this measure. According to Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams, this law also puts cops in danger because they’d be showing up unannounced to steal people’s guns despite no crime having been committed.

Despite the resistance from law enforcement, the bill’s head sponsor disagrees.

“This bill will give law enforcement and families the tools that they need to stop tragedies from constantly happening and save lives,” House Rep. Tom Sullivan (D) said.

Sullivan ran for state representative after he tragically lost his son in the Aurora mass shooting in 2012. While his son’s death is certainly tragic, laws like this one would likely not have prevented it.

We’ve seen this play out before already. Earlier this year, a tragedy unfolded in California as a deranged gunman, Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, walked up on an innocent woman, officer Natalie Corona, pulled out his guns and began shooting her repeatedly until she died. Limbaugh then fired several more shots at others before turning the gun on himself and taking his own life. Had more people been nearby, Limbaugh would’ve likely carried out a mass shooting.

Limbaugh’s case is important to bring up due to the fact that he was subject to California’s “red flag” laws in 2018. Limbaugh was given a high-risk assessment that ordered him to turn in his registered weapons to police, the only one being a Bushmaster AR-15. On November 9, Limbaugh turned in the weapon.

Despite being banned from possessing a weapon, he still obtained one illegally and used it to commit murder.

What’s more, there were already laws on the books that should’ve stopped Nikolas Cruz from ever getting a gun as well. But none of them worked.

Citing Cruz as the reason for advocating the erosion of the 2nd Amendment, the anti-gun activists are claiming he should’ve had his guns taken which would have prevented the tragedy. Sadly, however, they are ignoring the fact that he was accused of multiple felonies by multiple peopleand should’ve never been able to purchase a gun in the first place—but law enforcement failed to act on any of it.

The reactionary nature of disarming Americans because deranged psychopaths kill people is dangerous and only serves to keep the guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens as the above two cases illustrate. Moreover, deranged psychopaths don’t even need guns to cause mass death.

According to a 2015 study, even if all guns were removed from America, in a ten year period, 355 people still would’ve been murdered in mass killings. 

From 2006 to 2015, 140 people were murdered by arsonists in mass fires, 104 were stabbed in mass stabbings, and 92 people were beaten to death in mass killings. To reiterate, these are deaths in which four or more people were killed.

“People sufficiently enraged to commit such crimes may also be motivated to find other ways,” criminologist James Alan Fox of Northeastern University points out.

Now, Colorado citizens will be able to disarm their neighbors over a feud or send a swat team to an ex-husband’s home to take his guns over an argument—and all of it will be legal—due process and innocence be damned.

New Zealand Deputy PM Under Fire For Claiming Muslim Communities In New Zealand Have “Militant Underbelly”

The Christchurch mosque massacres are being used to shut down any negative word related to Islam, including opposition to jihad mass murder and Sharia oppression. There could be jihad activity in New Zealand; what would be preventing it?

Jihad against unbelievers is taught in the Qur’ans they read in New Zealand as much as it is in the Qur’ans they read everywhere else.

So what did Winston Peters say — 14 years ago — that was false?

The very fact that he is being made to answer for these statements now is a manifestation of the witch-hunt, Cultural Revolution collective hysteria that is currently gripping the public square.

“Winston Peters won’t apologise for Muslim comments,” RNZ, April 1, 2019:

Winston Peters isn’t backing down over comments he made about Muslims during a 2005 speech titled The End of Tolerance.

In that speech, he said New Zealand has always been a nation of immigrants, but not of Islamic immigrants.

“In New Zealand the Muslim community have been quick to show us their more moderate face, but as some media reports have shown, there is a militant underbelly here as well,” he said.

“These two groups, the moderate and militant, fit hand and glove everywhere they exist.

“Underneath it all the agenda is to promote fundamentalist Islam.

“Indeed these groups are like the mythical Hydra – a serpent underbelly with multiple heads capable of striking at any time and in any direction.”

In that speech, he also suggested asylum seeker Ahmed Zaoui must “chuckle at the naiveté and innocence of his supporters who clearly have no understanding of radical Islam.”

Mr Peters told Morning Report the comments were made in the context of recent terror attacks in London and that Imams around the world were saying the same thing.

“I was talking about extremism and I don’t resile from that.”…

Prayer to Jesus Is Offensive To Muslims & Democrats Because Christ Is The Only One That Brings True Freedom & Liberty

This week, The Blaze reported, The first Muslim representative elected to the Pennsylvania legislature is demanding an apology from another member who began their session with a prayer to Jesus Christ, calling it ‘highly offensive.’”

The Pennsylvania State Democratic party called the prayer an “Islamophobic message,” while Party Whip Jordan Harris shrieked:

Today, we saw religion weaponized in the House chamber in what could be considered a gross attempt to intimidate, demean and degrade a Muslim State representative in the presence of her family, friends and guests.

This got me thinking: The United States was founded by immigrants of many cultural and religious diversities. Since the early 1600s, America was known as the place where people could go to start a new life with freedom of religion, the liberty to choose your own occupation, and a place of refuge from oppressive governments.

The Mayflower Compact states why the Pilgrims came to America in unequivocal terms:

Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia… 

During the time of our founding, Islam was a major religion in many parts of the world. Therefore, there were numerous Muslims living in America during the time of its founding. Naturally, there was great concern over Muslims taking over America’s Christian value system, especially since America was in a war against Islamic terrorists – the Barbary Powers War – that spanned over the presidencies of Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison. 

Concerning the fear of Muslims holding high office in America,

Supreme Court Justice James Iredell, who was nominated to the Court by President Washington, stated:

But it is objected that the people of America may perhaps choose representatives who have no religion at all, and that pagans and Mohammedans (Muslims) may be admitted into offices . . . . But it is never to be supposed that the people of America will trust their dearest rights to persons who have no religion at all, or a religion materially different from their own.

Make no mistake, the intent of our founders was not to sanction religions outside of Christianity. In the words of Supreme Court Justice and Father of American Jurisprudence, Joseph Story, “The real object of the (First) Amendment was, not to countenance, much less to advance Mohammedanism (Islam), or Judaism, or infidelity, by prostrating Christianity; but to exclude all rivalry among Christian sects, and to prevent any national ecclesiastical establishment, which should give to an hierarchy the exclusive patronage of the national government.”

Lastly, we definitely need to understand that when our founders referred to the Lord, they were referring to Jesus. George Washington acknowledged Christ as the Divine Author of our blessed religion. This is also the same Lord they acknowledged when signing the Constitution “in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty-seven.”

Why were they so exclusive?  Simple, because Christianity is the ONLY system of worship designed to bring liberty and freedom to all mankind who are created in God’s image. Contrary to being a weapon, Christianity is a defender of the physically, spiritually, and mentally oppressed. You see, where the Spirit of our Lord is, there is liberty.

Signs Of Another Recession Are Literally Everywhere

The signs of yet another economic recession are everywhere.  In fact, it seems hard to find any positive economic news anymore, even though a mere few months ago, it was difficult to find a report signaling the United States might be headed for some turmoil.

The Federal Reserve finally turned more dovish recently, alluding to market fears.  Stating they wouldn’t be raising interest rates again, which makes borrowing money more expensive, was just one of the signs that we may need to prepare ourselves for another downturn. With the current state of the average American’s finances, any hiccup in the economy could be bad news for those living paycheck to paycheck (or 78% of Americans.)

Some economic analysts are now saying that very soon, the central bankers at the Fed will begin actively easing by reinvesting the Fed’s maturing mortgage bonds into Treasury securities. It’s not exactly “Quantitative Easing I, II, and III,” but it will have some of the same effects, according to GoldSeek.com. Two factors appear to be the catalyst to the Fed’s “thinking” on this dovish turn.

The first is the increasing recognition of the same slowing global growth that made other central banks turn dovish in recent months. The second is the Fed’s realization that its previous course risked inverting the yield curve, which was violently turning against its fourth-quarter expectations and possibly toward recession. Raising rates at that point would not have looked good for central banks in the history books, hence the backtracking. But eventually, their history will be ruined either way – this is just a “kick the can down the road” temporary solution.

Central Banks Prepare For A Slow Down In The Economy; But The Fed Can’t Fix This Crisis

GoldSeek.com believes, as we do, that a recession is approaching but it’s not quite here just yet.  The latest data is not encouraging, however, and it won’t be long before we start to see canyons, instead if some minor cracks in this economy. The most glaring concern for economic analysts is that the global economy clearly hasn’t recovered from the last recession like it did in previous cycles. Money printing and QE has failed to work this time regardless of the fancy stock market “recovery” numbers. Rising prices and wage stagnation have led to a wealth gap that has seen the more ignorant masses calling for socialism and complete government control over the economy.

Those solutions have failed every single time they’ve been tried, but people have lost all hope that they can make it in this already authoritarian environment created by the elite politicians and central bankers.  What the disillusioned masses fail to realize is that they are held back by themselves, and the beliefs in the rules put in place to intentionally keep them down and brainwash them into believing they are nothing without government dominance and control.  But it’s time to take back power from the government and central bankers, not add to it.

You can begin by preparing for the inevitable, even if it’s early. In fact, the earlier the better! Preparing yourself for a recession is simple, but it is also incredibly difficult at the same time.  You will need to become as financially free as you possibly can before it hits you square in your wallet.

How Prepare For An Economic Downturn: Go Debt-Free In 2019

To do that, you’ll need to live on less and pay off debts.  Throw every spare cent at your debt, and watch your payments dwindle. When you don’t owe anyone any money, you are free to do with your income what you choose, and buying some extra food and bottled water is never a bad idea. Seriously, who knows what could happen? A severe storm could even warrant using that stored food and water, in you’ll be glad you took on a preparedness mindset when the economic SHTF.

Ohio: Muslim Dentist Nessreen Zayed Supports Genocide of Jews Wants to Torture ‘Zionist’ Patients

Even the Nazis didn’t take such unbridled joy from genocidal hate and bigotry as do today’s Muslim Jew-haters. It literally defines them. Zayed is like her fellow medical professional Lara Kollab, the vicious Muslim racist who had a monstrous history of Jew-hatred and racist statements and even BRAGGED about her hatred but wasn’t fired until Canary Mission called attention to her statements.

Is Zayed currently employed in the Cincinnati area?

Did her employers not vet her?

Or did they secretly agree with her?

“Dentist Nessreen Zayed Supports Genocide of Jews & Expresses Desire to Torture ‘Zionist’ Patients,” IsraellyCool, April 2, 2019 (thanks to Mark):

One of my favorite movies of all time is Marathon Man, starring the imposing acting duo of Laurence Olivier and Dustin Hoffman. Perhaps the most iconic scene is when Olivier’s Nazi war criminal Dr Christian Zell, a dentist, tortures Hoffman’s “Babe” Levy, a Jewish graduate student.

What is even more terrifying is the idea that real-life Cincinnati dentist Nessreen Zayed is out there practicing – because she has expressed a desire to go all Zell on “Zionists.”

She is referring to this video:

Yup, she’s just like Lara Kollab, only without the medical school part.

Sorry, I could not resist.

But what is also no laughing matter is Zayed’s Jew hatred.

Which manifests itself beyond hate speech, into support of terrorism against Jews.

Make no mistake about it. This dentist is advocating genocide…

Joe Biden Put His Hand On Sexually Assaulted Woman’s Thigh At Sexual Assault Event

Just Bad Touch Joe being Joe.

On Tuesday alone, two more women told The New York Times that the former vice president’s touches made them uncomfortable.

That’s framed under a headline of, “Biden’s Tactile Politics Threaten His Return in the #MeToo Era”.

Also “Serial Killer’s Tactile Interactions Threaten His Workplace Career”.

Tactile politics may be the most interesting euphemism the media has come up with yet.

The list of women coming forward is growing. Caitlyn Caruso, a former college student and sexual assault survivor, said Mr. Biden rested his hand on her thigh — even as she squirmed in her seat to show her discomfort — and hugged her “just a little bit too long” at an event on sexual assault at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. She was 19.

Ms. Caruso, now 22, said she chalked up the encounter at the time to how men act, and did not say anything publicly. But she said it was particularly uncomfortable because she had just shared her own story of sexual assault and had expected Mr. Biden — an architect of the 1994 Violence Against Women Act — to understand the importance of physical boundaries.

Allegedly groping a woman who had been assaulted at an event on sexual assault is truly something else. I would like to say it’s unimaginable, but Biden’s fellow creepy Democrat, Bob ‘Filthy’ Filner, was accused of something similar.

D. J. Hill, 59, a writer who recalled meeting Mr. Biden in 2012 at a fund-raising event in Minneapolis, said that when she and her husband, Robert, stepped up to take their photograph with the vice president, he put his hand on her shoulder and then started dropping it down her back, which made her “very uncomfortable.”

Her husband, seeing the movement, put his hand on Mr. Biden’s shoulder and interrupted with a joke. Ms. Hill did not say anything at the time and acknowledged that she does not know what Mr. Biden’s intention was or whether he was aware of her discomfit.

That’s four women.

But the New York Times desperately tries to carry water for Biden by describing his behavior as affectionate and supportive.

Eric Holder In Custody On Suspicion Of Murder Of Nipsey Hussle

It was reported earlier that Grammy nominee Nipsey Hussle was murdered in broad daylight while working on a documentary following the life of Dr. Sebi—real name—Alfredo Darrington Bowman, and his alleged cures for cancer and AIDS.  Many have come forward and believe this is the reason for the murder.  On Tuesday afternoon, California police arrested a suspect in the killing of Hussle, Eric Holder.

No, this isn’t Fast and Furious, Contempt of Congress Eric Holder.

CBS Los Angeles reports:

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told CBS2 that 29-year-old Eric Holder was caught by deputies sometime before 1:30 p.m. in the 9900 block of Artesia Boulevard. Los Angeles police responded to the scene and confirmed the man arrested was indeed Holder.

LAPD Chief Michel Moore told reporters Tuesday that Holder, a gang member, approached Hussle and the other men he was with several times Sunday and spoke with them. Holder then returned with a handgun and opened fire.

“Mr. Holder walked up on multiple occasions and engaged in a conversation with Nipsey and the others that were there. He left and subsequently came back armed with a handgun, and purposefully and r

Following the shooting, Holder fled in a 2016 Chevrolet Cruz being driven by an unidentified woman. Investigators were searching for the female getaway driver at last report.

Moore said that Holder had been engaged in some kind of dispute with Hussle, but did not specify the details of that dispute.

According to Moore, “At this point in our investigation, based on witness statements, and the background of those that we’ve identified, we believe this to be a dispute between Mr. Hussle and Mr. Holder.”

“It appears to be a personal matter between the two of them in regards to a dispute, and I’ll leave it at that,” Moore added.

Holder’s capture came just hours after LAPD Chief Michel Moore called upon Holder to surrender during a press conference, urging citizens to not provide shelter to him.

“To Mr. Holder, who I am confident is watching this … I ask him to surrender,” Moore pleaded.

“There should be no safe haven for this individual,” said Moore. “This is a man who is of substantial risk to public safety and willing to use violence and we want to see that stop.”

According to Page Six:

The slaying came just one day before Hussle, a reformed one-time gang member, was set to meet with LAPD brassto strategize on how to steer kids away from the streets, but Moore stressed that the slaying appeared motivated by a personal beef.

“We believe this to be a dispute between Mr. Hussle and Mr. Holder,” said Moore.

He declined to reveal the nature of their feud, but Holder reportedly had confronted Hussle minutes before the shooting, demanding to know whether he’d dropped a dime on him to cops.

Another Democrat Subpoena To The White House Issued After Security Clearance “Issues” Alleged By Whistleblower

The House Oversight Committee voted to authorize a subpoena for a former adjudications manager in the White House Personnel Security Office to testify behind closed doors as part of an investigation into the security clearance process of the Trump administration.

Prior to the hearing on Tuesday, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) claimed to have received a letter that alleged national security concerns that 25 officials had received security clearances “improperly.”  The allegations by the whistleblower claim that those 25 people were denied security clearance by the White House Personnel Security Office only to have those overturned by the White House.

Jennie Taer reports:

Tricia Newbold, who was the adjudications manager in the White House Personnel Security Office told Cummings and a bipartisan staff that her office had issued 25 denials of security clearances that have been overturned by the White House.

However, the Republican staff on the committee responded to both Cummings and Newbold. The members complained that Cummings “cherrypicked” partisan information and didn’t not give ample opportunity for Republican members to respond to Newbold.

In the rebuttal letter, Republican staff stated: 
  • Ms. Newbold generally focused her testimony on her concerns about Carl Kline, who served as OSCO’s Director of Personnel Security (and Ms. Newbold’s manager) until June 2018. Kline left the White House in January 2019.
  • Ms. Newbold’s primary concern with Kline was that he disagreed with her adjudication determinations in 25 cases, granting favorable adjudications when Ms. Newbold had recommended unfavorable outcomes.
  •  Ms. Newbold also lodged complaints about the office’s environment—ranging from how office files are stored, to the manner in which employees were required to scan documents into emails, to the physical position of aKline’s computer monitor on the desk inside of his office.

• Ms. Newbold testified that OSCO has been plagued by poor management during the majority of her 18-year tenure as an employee. She acknowledged, however, that the Trump Administration has implemented improvements to the office.

According to Cummings letter, Newbold’s concerns were serious and need further investigation. 
  • Why whistleblower came forward: “I would not be doing a service to myself, my country, or my children if I sat back knowing that the issues that we have could impact national security.”
  • The impact to national security: Security clearance applications for White House officials “were not always adjudicated in the best interest of national security.”
  • White House retaliation: “I’m terrified of going back. I know that this will not be perceived in favor of my intentions, which is to bring back the integrity of the office.”
  • Congress needs to act now: “this is my last hope to really bring the integrity back into our office.”

Now, if this is, in fact, going on, it is a serious concern.  After all, people wondered how in the world domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn made it in the White House during the usurpers stay in the People’s House.

However, it was New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who simply had to chime in with one of the most silly statements she could make.

“Every day that we go on without getting to the bottom of this matter is a day that we are putting hundreds if not potentially thousands of Americans at risk. I mean, really, what is next, putting nuclear codes in Instagram DMs?!? This is ridiculous.” said Ocasio Cortez.

Yeah, that’s not exactly the same thing and to be honest, unless someone had the particular security clearance, those codes would be meaningless anyway.  However, it’s not quite the same thing, but if there is an undermining of the security process, then that does need to be looked at.

The White House has referred to the security clearance investigation as “dangerous” and “shameful” and more than likely, they are probably correct, given the fact that the Democrat Party has been absolutely rabid to catch President Trump in anything at all in order to start impeachment proceedings against him.  This White House has been under investigation for two years with investigators having absolutely nothing to show for their investigation into alleged Russian collusion, and failing to arrest the actual colluders with Russia in the Obama administration.

On Monday, Kushner told Laura Ingraham, “I’ve been accused of all different types of things, all have been false.”

I guess we’ll find out whether or not this is more Christine Blasey Ford soap opera politics or whether there are any merits to the allegations soon enough.

Omar Investigation Over Paying Divorce Lawyer With Campaign Funds Reaches End – What’s The Conclusion?

Clearly the fault of the Jews.

WASHINGTON (SBG) – Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., the controversial freshman House Democrat, is soon to learn the results of a probe into her campaign spending as a state lawmaker in Minnesota, Sinclair has learned, with authorities there having recently completed their investigation and preparing to issue rulings in a pair of complaints Omar faces.

The complaints were filed last year, while Omar cruised to election to the House of Representatives, by a Republican state lawmaker, Rep. Steve Drazkowski. In referring Omar to the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board, Drazkowski alleged that Omar improperly spent close to $6,000 in campaign funds for personal use, including payments to her divorce attorney and for travel to Boston and Estonia. Drazkowski’s filing of the two complaints followed an earlier episode in which Omar repaid $2,500 for honoraria she received for speeches at colleges that receive state funding, a violation of ethics rules for Minnesota lawmakers.

Here’s some background from Drazowski.

A formal CFB investigation into the Omar committee’s use of campaign money to pay legal fees to her divorce attorney also remains ongoing. According to statements made to the CFB by attorney Carla Kjellberg, Omar’s payment to Kjellberg’s law office was reimbursed for services that the Kjellberg firm initially paid for on behalf of the Omar Committee, which would be a violation of state law. Additionally, it appears that the reimbursed expenses may have been related to tax preparation and legal expenses related to immigration.

All this goes back to the weird incest thing in Rep. Omar’s background.

More recently Omar found herself in serious trouble because of campaign finance rules. In her end-of-the-year report, Omar recorded a $2,250 campaign finance disbursement to Kjellberg Law Offices on November 20, 2016. The same law office represents Omar in her divorce proceedings.

Last year, Alpha News investigated the interesting background of Omar after Powerline Blog writer Scott Johnson indicated Omar may have engaged in marriage fraud. Omar, who publicly identified Ahmed Hirsi to be her husband, is currently married to Elmi – who through extensive investigation appears to be Omar’s brother.

Court documents obtained by Alpha News show Omar filing for divorce almost a year later than she had planned to. “I have yet to legally divorce Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, but am in the process of doing so,” Omar said in an August 2016 statement.

Kjellberg has described the payments as relating to crisis management. That could cover all sorts of territory.

And if the results are unfavorable, look for Rep. Omar to go on another anti-Semitic rant to shift the conversation.

Why Did The Florida Judicial System Render A Final Judgment Against A Rape Victim Without Giving Her Time To Defend Herself?

I’ve been bringing you the story of Deanna Williams, a single mother and grandmother who is currently pregnant and suffering from multiple sclerosis.  She is also the victim of rape.  Not nearly a day goes by now that I don’t learn something new in the case where attorneys are going after her for profit without any justification for doing so and seeking to use the court as a weapon against this defenseless woman.  In looking at the public record of documents near the end of 2017, it becomes clear that not only did the court render a final judgment against Ms. Williams to the tune of over $1 million, most of which was awarded to an attorney who had performed no legal services for Ms. Williams during her rape case nor was his firm a part of offering anything in that case, but it also deprived Ms. Williams right to defend herself and argue against a court order that came two full days after the final judgment.

To catch up on this case, please view the following previous articles:

According to attorney Nicole Spence of Affordable Law, who filed a motion to vacate on behalf of Ms. Williams, the order is to come before a final judgment.  Once the final judgment is issued, that is basically the end of the case.  However, as you will see, that did not happen, and I will let the reader and the Florida Bar, as well as Governor DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody determine just how much corruption, negligence, conspiracy, malpractice, ethics violations and downright criminality has been engaged in by the court, Ms. Williams’ attorneys and the plaintiff in the case by the actual records of the court.

All of the documents below can be easily obtained from the public record at LeeClerk.org under case 13-CA-003181.

First, understand that three final judgments were entered into the record, along with the report and recommendation of the general magistrate on the same day, 11-27-2017.

All three final judgments were signed on November 20, 2017, by Judge Jay B. Rosman, who would be busted in a prostitution ring sting only a few weeks later.  Keep that in mind.

Here are those documents.

 

Notice that Scott Mager and Mager Paruas, an attorney and firm that never offered nor were part of the original civil rape case of Ms. Williams were ever involved nor render any services, even though, according to court records, Scott Mager of Mager Paruas LLC claimed that it was “the law firm that handled the litigation for which Judge Rosman awarded entitlement to all reasonable fees and costs.”  Ms. Williams alleges that Mager purchased the rights to sue her from attorney Michael Dolce, and Mr. Dolce claims that is untrue.  Yet, Mager and Mager Paruas are attempting to collect more than $1 million from Ms. Williams when they provided absolutely no litigation services to Ms. Williams.

Now, take a look at the date on the report and recommendation of the general magistrate, November 22, 2017, a full two days after the final judgment.

Where I come from, we say “something is more crooked than a dog’s hind leg here.”   I’m not the only one that thinks so either.  Attorney Nicole Spence also believes something is out of order here because the Magistrate is not a judge, and a recommendation must come before a final judgment as to give the defense a time to argue against it.  That never happened.

There seems to be a serious violation of the rights of Ms. Williams here.

Additionally, as I have pointed out, a higher court ruled that the attorneys who were suing Ms. Williams had no standing and no evidence of such standing and reverse the lowered court’s ruling to hold Ms. Williams’ assets, but not Judge Rosman.  He acted against the court’s ruling and ordered the $200,000 illegally intercepted without authorization by Ms. Williams’ attorney at the time, Ware Cornell, to be split 50-50 between Ms. Williams and Scott Mager.  That money, according to Ms. Williams, is stolen funds, which is in the possession of Scott Mager of Mager Paruas.

Additionally, Mager also received another $200,000 of Ms. Williams money due to what Ms. Williams previous attorney, Mike Chianopolis, called an error and which Ms. Williams claims was a fraud upon the court.  Mr. Mager sought to receive all of the remaining settlement payments promised to Ms. Williams, even though that was not the agreement reached by her and her counsel, Mr. Chianopolis, and he even filed a motion and affidavit to the effect that what was entered into court records was not what was agreed upon on June 1, 2018.  Yet, the money continued to go to Mager, money that she desperately needs now for medical care due to a high-risk pregnancy and to retain an attorney to represent her.

This woman’s life has been destroyed.  First, via a rape.  Second, attorneys who were supposed to represent her and look after her interests have time and again been negligent, engaged in malpractice, theft, and incompetence… or they have conspired to rob Ms. Williams and use her in a bigger plan to force Ms. Williams to sue Gloria Allred for an even bigger payout.  I don’t know which it is, but there is definitely enough for the governor, the attorney general, the Florida Bar and the governing body that deals with judges in the state to get involved and get involved quickly.

Ms. Williams has lost her home.  She is about to lose her car.  She is also about to lose the apartment she is living in, and all that can be done in this matter is that an attorney, Scott Mager, who provided no litigation services whatsoever to Ms. Williams, can do is push for a contempt of court enforcement against her that will seek to arrest her.

If you are compelled to help Ms. Williams with funds to acquire an attorney, which will cost $15,000 in order to retain one, in order to help her fight back, along with money to simply survive, please click here to donate to her Go Fund Me account.

It should be noted that Mr. Mager wanted to depose Ms. Williams and was to do so by March 27, 2019.  Here is the record of attempts Ms. Williams made to set up deposition with Mr. Mager after her last attorney Daniel J. Endrizal, III withdrew from the case on March 19, 2019.

3/19/2019 – faxed fact info shett to Scott Mager

3/19/2019 – fax to set up depostion

3/19/2019 – phoned twice to set up deposition

3/19/2019 – emailed twice to set up deposition

3/20/2019 – emailed to set up deposition

3/20/2019 – phoned to set up deposition

3/21-2019 – emailed to set up deposition

3/21-2019 – phoned to set up deposition

3/22/2019 – emailed to set up deposition

3/22/2019 – phoned to set up deposition

3/25/2019 – emailed to set up deposition

3/26/2019 – emailed twice to set up deposition

3/27/2019 was the final day to be deposed as determined by the court order, and Scott Mager never returned her calls nor her emails to establish a time for deposition to meet the date of 3/27/2019.

Phone records and emails easily verify Ms. Williams’ claims.

Instead, Scott Mager’s assistant said that he would be available for deposition on April 17, 2019, nearly three weeks after he knew the court had set a date on, and Mr. Mager has been the one pressing the court to go after Ms. Williams.  All the final public records show this at LeeClerk.org.

Still, Ms. Williams made two final attempts as late as 3/29/2019 by phone to try and set up a deposition.

According to Ms. Williams, she spoke to an attorney about the April 17, 2019 date for deposition and was told that it was a trap set for her and that she should respond to the assistant by requesting deposition within the time frame allotted by the court or asking that they set aside the contempt order and writ of bodily attachment before agreeing to a deposition date outside of the court’s parameters.

Attorney Scott Mager never responded, but he did appeal to the court to enforce the contempt charges and have Ms. Williams arrested.

While the court claims that Williams is not compliant with the court, their own records show that the court infringed on Ms. Williams rights to be heard and that Mr. Mager failed to work with Ms. Williams in the constraints of what the court ordered.

Grammy-Nominee Nipsey Hussle, Making Documentary on ‘Cure for Cancer and AIDS’, Murdered in Broad Daylight

Los Angeles, CA — Nipsey Hussle was a Grammy-nominated rapper who served as an inspiration to other great musicians and athletes. At the time of his death he was working on a documentary following the life of Dr. Sebi—real name—Alfredo Darrington Bowman, and his alleged cures for cancer and AIDS. That documentary may never come to light now, because on March 31, 2019, Hussle was murdered in broad daylight outside of his clothing shop in Los Angeles.

Now, many people are coming forward to allege that this documentary was a factor in Hussle’s murder. According to Heavy, the doc, which followed the 1985 court trial in which Dr. Sebi proved he had a cure for AIDS, allegedly contained evidence that the government assisted in Dr. Sebi’s death.

Hussle, who was loved by many in the music and sports world, just a couple of hours before being shot, had tweeted, “Having strong enemies is a blessing.”

TFTP found a post on Facebook that also hinted at the fact that people may be coming after Hussle for his work.

????✊????

Posted by Neequa Love on Friday, February 15, 2019

Sadly, this protection did not work.

While Hussle was an amazing musician, in more recent years, he had developed an interest in technology and community development, and he was part of a team of artists and entrepreneurs who developed Destination Crenshaw, an open-air museum devoted to honoring African-American artistic achievement, according to the LA Times.

“In our culture, there’s a narrative that says, ‘Follow the athletes, follow the entertainers,’” he told the Times last year. “And that’s cool, but there should be something that says, ‘Follow Elon Musk, follow [Mark] Zuckerberg.’

“I think that with me being influential as an artist and young and coming from the inner city, it makes sense for me to be one of the people that’s waving that flag,” he said.

Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Ashgedom, had also become a fan of and advocate for the work of Dr. Sebi. Dr. Sebi was a controversial figure who Hussle believed was a threat to the multibillion-dollar medical industry that not only relies on continued sickness but also needs it to profit from it.

Dr. Sebi’s death was highly controversial and many believe that he was taken out for his work in allegedly curing AIDS and cancer.

According to the Root, 

On May 28, 2016, Dr. Sebi was arrested at Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport in Honduras for carrying some $37,000 in cash. He was released pending a court hearing, only to be rearrested June 3 by the Ministerio Público, Honduras’ version of the FBI, and charged with money laundering. Dr. Sebi remained in custody until Aug. 6, when he was rushed to a local hospital reportedly suffering from complications of pneumonia. Dr. Sebi died en route. He was 82.

Just last year, Hussle went on the Breakfast Club radio show and talked about his documentary on Dr. Sebi.

“I am working on doing doc on the trial in 1985. When Dr. Sebi went to trial in New York because he put in the newspaper that he cured AIDS. He beat the case. Then he went to federal court the next day, and he beat that case. But nobody talks about it,” he said.

While this may sound outlandish, it is based in truth. In 1985, Dr. Sebi was running ads in several publications saying that “AIDS has been cured.” When the New York State attorney instructed him to stop the ads, he went to court.

In court, Dr. Sebi said he had cured every single one of his patients who received his treatment, so the judge asked him to bring just one of those patients in as evidence. Dr. Sebi brought in 77 of his healed patients and won the case. 

According to Heavy, this accomplishment was never celebrated or honored. The late pop star Michael Jackson, who was also one of his patients, took him down to Washington D.C. to meet with Black Congressman, but they received zero support for what should’ve been considered the greatest medical break through of the 20th century.

When Hussle explained why he felt the need to do this documentary, he said, “I think the story is important. It’s a powerful narrative. Like if someone in this room said, ‘Hey, I cured AIDS.’ I’d be like yeah, right. And then I can show you an example of him going to trial and proving in court he proved AIDS, I’d be interested in it. More so than championing his products or explaining his methodology. Put some light on that case.”

For those who may not understand the impetus behind murdering a man like Hussle, consider how powerful movies like “Leaving Neverland” or “VAXXED” have been and the damage they have done. If Dr. Sebi’s work was real, this documentary could’ve single-handedly been responsible for bringing down the medical industrial complex. CEOs, government officials, and pharmaceutical companies would have taken massive losses and potentially even gone to jail. As the old saying goes, there is no money in the cure—only sickness.

Hussle also had enemies in the financial world as he was an outspoken advocate for cryptocurrency and was instrumental in raising awareness for it.

Sadly, this documentary may never see the light of day. As to whether or not he was killed for his work, we may never know as the suspect who killed Hussle is still at large.

Former Police Chief Who Wasn’t Jailed for Robbing Bank, Just Robbed Another Bank & Got Shot

Williamston, SC — In 2017, the former police chief for Williamston, South Carolina walked into a bank of America with a gun, handed the teller a note, and then walked out of the bank with a sack of cash. He was later arrested and found guilty for committing armed robbery—a felony, according to 16-11-330— that imposes a penalty of 10 to 30 years. However, he received no jail time. Now, after receiving his blue privilege in the form of a wrist slap for robbing a bank, this former top cop has struck again.

Richard Edward Inman, 47, was arrested late last month for robbing yet another Bank of America—this time, in Pawleys Island. Inman was apparently on a mission to get away and as he tried to escape, he was shot.

According to police, Inman arrived at the bank around 6 p.m., handed the teller a note, and then took off in a van with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The Post and Courier reports:

Investigators deployed a bloodhound tracking team as part of their search effort and eventually engaged in a vehicle pursuit southbound on U.S. Highway 17 toward Charleston.

Around 7:30 p.m., Inman was stopped by Charleston County and Georgetown County sheriff’s deputies on Highway 17 across from Doe Hall Plantation Road, according to the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office.

During the stop, at least two deputies from the Charleston and Georgetown sheriff’s offices fired at Inman while trying to apprehend him, both agencies confirmed. Inman suffered non-life-threatening injuries, authorities said, and was transported to a hospital.

The details as to how or why police shot Inman remains unclear. However, they likely considered him armed and dangerous since he had just committed armed robbery of a bank.

On Monday, authorities confirmed Inman had been booked into jail after being released from the hospital and charged with armed robbery, entering a bank with intent to steal, and failure to stop for blue lights.

Prior to quitting his job of police chief in shame for making racist jokes, Inman had been a cop for 25 years. When he committed the first armed robbery in 2017, the judge likely considered his prior career in law enforcement as the reason for only giving him four years of probation.

Now, however, prosecutors will likely throw the book at him as he’s proven to be a repeat offender, in less than two years.

While a cop turning into an armed bank robber may seem like a rare and insane situation, TFTP has reported on multiple instances of this very phenomenon.

Just last year, right up the road in North Carolina, a police officer was arrested and charged with armed robbery following a bank heist in which the deputy was the only suspect. Davidson County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) Deputy Jeff Athey was arrested just four minutes after he allegedly committed the crime.

According to WSOC TV9, “Athey worked for the department for years, and also worked as a private contractor for Blackwater in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Athey allegedly robbed the F&M bank on West Main Street in Rockwell. He reportedly used a semi-automatic weapon during the robbery. Highlighting the ludicrous nature of Athey’s situation is the fact that he was was scheduled to work later that day as a police officer for DCSO.

Also, as TFTP reported at the time, former Atlanta police officer Maurice Dodd fatally shot himself while fleeing police after he robbed a bank in Illinois. Dodd was reportedly in the Chicago area visiting family when he robbed the bank. He had just been fired from the department for a DUI arrest.

TFTP also reported on the notorious “Snow Bird Bandit,” who was making headlines by robbing multiple banks and getting away with it. For months, the robber, who got his name because of his old age and gray hair, alluded authorities until he was finally nabbed in Orange County, CA.

When police finally caught up to him, they found the infamous bank robber was none other than 70-year-old Randolph Bruce Adair, a retired Los Angeles cop.

Volcano That Could Completely Cover Mexico City With Volcanic Ash Just Erupted 200 Times In A 24 Hour Period

The most dangerous volcano in Mexico just erupted 200 times in a 24 hour period, but there has been an almost total blackout about this in the U.S. media.  Authorities are saying that the odds of more volcanic activity at Mt. Popocatepetl are “immediate to high”, and if a full-blown Plinian eruption were to occur it would be the worst natural disaster in the modern history of North America.  Approximately 26 million people live within 60 miles of Popocatepetl’s crater, and so we are talking about the potential for death and destruction on a scale that is difficult to imagine.  In ancient times, Mt. Popocatepetl buried entire Aztec cities in super-heated mud, but then it went to sleep for about 1,000 years.  Unfortunately for us, it started waking up again in the 1990s, and now this is the most active that we have seen it ever since the volcano originally reawakened.

What we have witnessed over the last several days has been nothing short of stunning.  According to a British news source, a level three yellow alert was put into effect after “200 eruptions were recorded in just 24 hours”…

Popocatépetl volcano, just 35 miles from Mexico City and 20 miles from Puebla sent ash and plumes of smoke more than 1.5 miles high. Mexico’s National Centre for Disaster Prevention (CENAPRED) has warned people to keep away from Popocatépetl after 200 eruptions were recorded in just 24 hours. A level three yellow alert has been issued meaning the chance of volcanic activity is immediate to high.

At this point, a 7.5 mile “security radius” has been established around the volcano, and if things continue to get worse authorities will be forced to begin large scale evacuations.

Hopefully, there will be enough warning before a Plinian eruption occurs because several towns could be completely buried by super-heated mud traveling at 60 miles per hour

While not every Plinian-sized eruption is alike in ferocity, all the volcanologists I spoke with provided grave details about Popo’s sure devastation. First, you would see 1,000-degree lahars and pyroclastic flows speeding down at 60 mph. Those flows would reach most, if not all, of the towns in the High Risk area, which today include Santiago Xalitzintla (population: 2,196), and San Pedro Benito Juarez (3,153), and Buenavista (814).

No human on the entire planet can run that fast.  If people are able to get to their vehicles in time they would have a chance, but in reality ,the highways would quickly become completely clogged as thousands of escaping vehicles all converged at the same time.

Mexico City would be out of range of the tsunami of super-heated mud, but the truth is that the volcanic ash would kill far more people.  Even just breathing in the volcanic ash could potentially be a death sentence

The real threat, of course, begins after the lava halts. If the wind blew in Mexico City’s direction, a city-sized cloud of ash 20 centimeters thick would descend upon the buildings, dismantling roadways, shutting down airports and the Metro line. Breathing it in could kill you. And that’s just the first day. After that, seeping ash would clog Mexico City’s drainage lines, poisoning its water supplies, and ceasing electricity transmission via short-circuiting. With food supplies cut off, and no electricity, the dense metropolis would probably resemble something like the World Trade Center the night of September 11th, except with three times as many people attempting to flee. All under the veil of an ash-blackened sky.

Ultimately, we are talking about an event that would mean the end of the modern nation of Mexico as we know it today, and this is the most active that Mt. Popocatepetl has been in any of our lifetimes.

Are you starting to understand why I get so frustrated with the mainstream media?  What is happening to Mt. Popocatepetl should be front page news all over the county, and yet the mainstream media is almost completely ignoring it.

Meanwhile, a volcano in Washington state is starting to vent steam and gas.

I’ll bet you hadn’t heard about that either.

Mount Baker is 31 miles due east of Bellingham, Washington, and all throughout the month of March steam and gas have been pouring out of the volcano

The state’s quartet of the potentially eruptive peaks are all part of the Cascade Mountain Range, and the northernmost is Mount Baker, which is located in Whatcom County, 31 miles east of Bellingham.

On March 4, the 10,781-foot-tall volcano began producing a number of steam plumes known as fumaroles. The expulsions have continued throughout the month since then and several have been highly visible from many miles away and widely captured in photographs and cell phone videos.

Those of you that are familiar with my work know that I am much more concerned about Mt. Rainier, and when that volcano starts venting steam and gas I am likely to really start freaking out.  But Mount Baker is a very serious threat too because of its “proximity to human population”

Mount Baker last erupted in 1843, but in several recent publications, the U.S. Geological Survey has maintained that Washington state’s third-highest peak continues to present a serious threat due to the frequency of its eruptive history and the volcano’s proximity to human population.

We are seeing a rise in seismic activity all along the Ring of Fire, and as I have frequently warned, North America will not be immune from what is taking place.

The entire west coast lies directly along the Ring of Fire, and seismologists assure us that it is just a matter of time before we witness absolutely massive natural disasters.

And with all of the shaking that is currently going on, the truth is that time may be running out a lot more quickly than many of us had been anticipating…

Man Tries to Kidnap 5-Year-Old Girl – Mom Pulls a Gun

A woman and her daughter were shopping at a mall in West Virginia when things took a terrible turn. And if the mother had not been armed and willing to use her firearm, there’s no telling how badly this story would have ended.

Here’s what happened.

Who would think that Old Navy would be a place that you need to be armed?

A mother from West Virginia just made a very good case for carrying everywhere, 24-7.

She was shopping at the Huntington Mall in Barboursville, a small town in West Virginia with a population of about 4000 people. Suddenly, a man grabbed her five-year-old daughter by the hair and began dragging her off.

According to the criminal complaint, a mother was shopping with her daughter in the Old Navy store a little after 6 p.m. when the suspect approached them.

The complaint says the suspect “grabbed the child by the hair and attempted to pull her away,” and then the little girl “dropped to the floor with the male still pulling her away.”

Police say the mother then pulled out a handgun and told the suspect to let go of the child. The mother told police the man then let go of the girl and ran out of the store into the mall. (source)

This story would probably not have ended with the suspect fleeing had the woman not been armed. It’s yet another shining example of a woman defending herself and someone else with a gun. Here’s an article I wrote a while back with my own experience protecting my child with a gun.

The mom identified the suspect to police.

In the Huntington Mall case, the police were able to arrest the suspect. After the mother scared off the would-be kidnapper, she reported the incident to mall security and the local police. They found him walking near the food court.

The attacker is facing felony charges.

Mohamed Fathy Hussein Zayan, 54, of Alexandria, Egypt, was arraigned at the Cabell County Courthouse late Monday night…

…Barboursville police are investigating and believe this is an isolated incident, and no further danger to the public exists.

The suspect’s bond was set at $200,000.

The magistrate says he’ll have to surrender his passport and stay in West Virginia.

An Arabic-speaking interpreter was used on the phone at the arraignment.

The suspect’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 8.  (source)

Don’t hold your breath about seeing this on CNN.

It always defies the narrative when innocent people protect others using a gun, which means that stories like these, which would encourage public opinion to support concealed carry, are unlikely to see the light of day on the mainstream news.

But we know that it takes a good guy (or gal) with a gun to defeat a bad guy when you are either physically unmatched or carrying a weapon of his own. Women, particularly, need to be armed and confident in using their weapon.

Previously, I wrote about women who used guns to defend themselves and others.

These brave women didn’t wait around to be victims. They took their personal security into their own hands. Each of them got a gun and learned how to use it. They didn’t hesitate when the time came and because of this, they and others remained unscathed.

Notice that none of the assailants threatened the women with a firearm. They tried to use their superior strength and size to intimidate their would-be victims. In each case, the gun served as an equalizer.

Biology defies the politically correct ideal that everyone is equal. If my daughters were to ever find themselves in a position where they had to fight to save their own lives, I would far rather they be armed with the handgun of their choice than any number of weekend self-defense classes. Nothing is going to empower them more than a firearm that they can use with comfort and accuracy. Nothing is going to be more likely to end a conflict before it erupts into violence than seeing that the person you thought was going to be your victim is willing to fight back with deadly force.

The idea that we all need to hand over our guns and then the world would be a safer place is nothing but a silly,  rose-colored daydream with no basis in reality.  If that offends you, then you need to sincerely think about the fact that under your guidelines, the smaller, weaker person will always be the victim.

We all have the natural right to protect ourselves and our loved ones.  Why are some people so terrified of the idea of taking control of their own safety?

There is no way to guess how many times a firearm in the hands of a would-be victim deters a criminal and saves a life. The mere sight of a firearm doesn’t cause violence. It can prevent the violence that is brewing. (source)

And here’s yet another story that supports my claim.

Unfortunately, our right to bear arms is under threat. I’m glad we have brave sheriffs across the country who are creating Second Amendment sanctuaries. This particular sheriff is even willing to go to jail to support our right to defend ourselves.

Destroying the Electoral College & Disenfranchising Voters

The State of Oregon House passed legislation (HB 2927) that would make Oregon award its seven (7) Electoral College votes only to presidential candidates who win the national popular vote. According to National Popular Vote, this kind of legislation has already been passed by 14 States, equaling 184 electoral votes (CA, CO, CT, DC, DE, HI, IL, MA, MD, NJ, NY, RI, VT, WA).

To be clear, Oregon and these other 13 States are not abolishing the Electoral College but altering it. Article 2, section 2, clauses 2 and 3 and the Twelfth Amendment of the US Constitution requires States to establish electors that will choose the president and vice president of the United States. These States are not eliminating their electoral college; they are eliminating the voice of their citizens and eliminating the legitimacy and relevance of their State’s involvement in the political process. However, now members of Congress are creating bills to actually dissolve the Electoral College. Either way, altering or abolishing, these changes will result in disenfranchising the vote of every State.

This infectious disease of ignorance must be stopped. The only cure is knowledge, so here are some facts that we must not only consider, but use to educate others.

The process of the Electoral College was established for a specific reason.  Because we have failed, for generations, to teach an accurate application of the Constitution, many people like Oregon Rep. Alissa Keny-Guyer believe that the electoral college is “flawed and outdated” and “does not fit the ‘We The People’ and ‘One person, one vote’ style of government.” Keny-Guyer, and those who believe as she does, simply do not understand why the electoral college was established and how that process protects her individual liberty and the sovereignty of her State, or understand that neither Oregon nor the U.S. are democracies, but instead are Constitutional Republics.

The process of the Electoral College was established to ensure that the person elected to be president of these United States would accurately represent the union as a whole, not favoring certain States while ignoring others. The office of president, contrary to popular belief, was never designed to be a representative of individual citizens, but rather a representative of the collective interests of the States.

A survey of the powers delegated to the president via Article 2 of the Constitution makes the role of the president quite clear. He is not the “leader of America,” he is the leader of the military upon declaration of war by Congress. He is part of the treaty process that makes contractual agreements with foreign governments and the States. Most everything that the president is to do, he does only with the consent of the Senate: the voice of the States. Together, the President and the Senate ensure that each State’s interests are represented equally in matters of war, peace, and foreign commerce. The office of the president was established to be the voice to foreign countries on behalf of the collective States. Because he is the representative of the States, the electors of the State are to choose their president based upon the person they believe will best represent the principles and interests of their State.

These subtle distinctions are hard for Americans to grasp since we have forgotten that our republic is a collection of independent sovereign States who created D.C. to represent their interests.

However, the national popular vote movement takes us even farther away from our Constitutional structure by further removing the independence of the States and eliminating the voice of the people within those states. This legislation proposes that once a popular vote is complete across the nation, each elector of the State must choose the president elected by popular vote nationwide, regardless of the collective choice of his fellow State citizens.

Through popular vote, the individual States would become completely irrelevant in the processes of the federal government. The president would no longer be required to ensure all States’ interests were represented in matters of foreign affairs, treaties or trade. The president’s only concern, throughout the entire four years of his terms, would be to make sure the select few States with the greatest voting population were happy and pleased with the execution of his power. It would be like Georgia surrendering all its voice to New York and legislating themselves out of the political process, or like Connecticut asking Texas to decide what is in the best interest of Connecticut.

The national popular vote would ensure that the people themselves would be silenced. What would be the point in voting if you didn’t live in New York, Texas, California, or Florida, where the majority of the voting population resides?  Every presidential election would be chosen by these few States and all others relegated to being a spectator in the entire political process, making them politically irrelevant. Future presidents could then ignore all but a few states.

A national popular vote is, in fact, an oxymoron, as it would only reflect the voice of the most populous States, denying the disenfranchised voters in the other states a voice in the presidential election.

More Joe Biden Stories Are Coming Out: “Anybody Who’s Ever Been Around Joe Biden Has Been Touched By Him – Literally”

For years, conservatives have been pointing out Joe Biden’s extremely inappropriate behavior with women and children, but the mainstream media almost entirely ignored it.  But now that some victims on the left are coming forward and speaking out, all of a sudden the mainstream media is all over this story.  Could it be possible that the media has been given the green light to destroy “Creepy Uncle Joe” because someone else is slated to get the Democratic nomination?  No new polls have been released since this scandal went viral, but an average of the previous six polls shows Biden with a solid 7.4 point lead over the rest of the field.  And even though he is not the most charismatic politician in the Democratic field, he is still widely loved by many on the left, and many people believed that he had the best chance of beating President Trump in November 2020.

But not now.  Lucy Flores dealt the first blow, and now more women are coming forward with their own stories.

Christian Science Monitor reporter Linda Feldmann recalls her encounter with Biden very vividly.  She was up in Connecticut on a very hot day to report on a political event, and the thing she remembers most about that day is “Mr. Biden’s sweaty arm”

We were at an outdoor event in Glastonbury, the sun blazing overhead, and I noticed the senators standing around chatting. I walked over and introduced myself. Senator Biden greeted me warmly – and then threw a sweaty arm over my shoulder, and gave me a squeeze. I cringed a little internally; I had never met Mr. Biden before. But I chalked the overly friendly gesture up to his personal style, and maybe a generational difference. I proceeded to interview the senators, but the thing I remember most vividly is Mr. Biden’s sweaty arm.

As Gail Russell Chaddock, a longtime congressional reporter for the Monitor put it, “Anybody who’s ever been around Joe Biden has been touched by him – literally.”

Clearly, Feldmann was not as offended by this encounter as Lucy Flores was, but she did admit that she “cringed a little” when Biden grabbed her.

What former congressional aide Amy Lappos is alleging is much more disturbing.  On Monday, she told the Hartford Courant about the time that Biden inappropriately touched her…

“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,”Amy Lappos told The Courant Monday. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”

Like so many of Biden’s encounters, it was relatively brief, but Lappos continues to be traumatized by this memory to this day

“I never filed a complaint, to be honest, because he was the vice president. I was a nobody,” Lappos said. “There’s absolutely a line of decency. There’s a line of respect. Crossing that line is not grandfatherly. It’s not cultural. It’s not affection. It’s sexism or misogyny.”

Of course, these new allegations are not exactly shocking to those of us that have been following this story for years.

As Vox has noted, Biden has a very long history of touching women in inappropriate ways…

Biden’s been caught on camera embracing a female reporter from behind and gripping her above her waist, just below her bust. At a swearing-in ceremony for Defense Secretary Ash Carter, Biden put his hands on the shoulders of Stephanie Carter, Carter’s wife, and then leaned in and whispered into her ear. (He’s whispered into many women’s ears.) He’s also touched women’s faces and necks during other photo ops. Once at a swearing-in ceremony for a US senator, he held the upper arm of the senator’s preteen daughter, leaned down and whispered into her ear, as she became visibly uncomfortable. Then he kissed the side of her forehead, a gesture that made the girl flinch.

Biden just kept getting away with it, and so he just kept on doing it.

But now his skeletons are starting to catch up with him.

And Biden has always known that he makes women feel uncomfortable.  Just consider this old quote from well before this current uproar

“I’m a tactile politician,” Biden said March 16 during a speech in Dover, Del. “That gets me in trouble, as well, because I think I can feel and taste what is going on.”

I really can’t understand why some on the left are still choosing to defend the guy.

Just think about it.  If some dude went around touching women inappropriately, sniffing their hair and kissing them without permission, how long would that individual last in your workplace?

In no universe is such behavior acceptable, and this is a point that even CNN’s Jake Tapper is making

Discussing former Nevada lawmaker Lucy Flores’ claim he inappropriately touched and kissed her in 2014 at a campaign rally, Tapper said, “I have to say, if any of the men around this table behaved this way at our places of work, we would get reprimanded, we would get potentially even fired. You are not allowed to touch women inappropriately. Again, it doesn’t matter if your intention is sexual or just friendly — you can’t massage a woman’s shoulders and sniff her hair and kiss the back of her head. That’s not appropriate.”

Someone has just put up a fake Biden campaign site that highlights his inappropriate behavior, and I have to admit that it was the best April Fool’s joke that I saw this year.

His campaign is dead now, and he was receiving a very lukewarm reception from potential donors even before this story broke

Don’t just take my word for it; consider this recent AP headline: “Joe Biden faces a challenge winning over progressives. That challenge is affecting Biden’s fundraising efforts.” According to CNBC, “Skeptical Democratic donors tell Joe Biden they will not raise funds for him at the start of the 2020 campaign.”

Major donors admitted that “they’re not yet convinced he can overtake the younger, more diverse and progressive field, and that they are going to wait to see how he competes in the race.”

If America is ever going to move in a positive direction, we must demand moral behavior from our leaders.

And that includes those on both the left and the right.

Joe Biden’s behavior should disqualify him from running for any political office ever again, and anyone that tries to defend him is choosing to become part of the problem.
