Domino Falling Order Corrected

The order needs to be corrected, in light of recent events in Boston.

Rights Dominos

When they came for the Second Amendment, I owned no guns, so I said nothing.
When they came for the Fourth Amendment, I had nothing to hide, so I said nothing.
When they came for the Fifth Amendment, I had been accused of no crime, so I said nothing.
When they came for the Sixth Amendment, I was not on trial, so I said nothing.
And when they finally came for the First Amendment, I could say nothing.

Coming to a town near you. Isoroku Yamamoto, Japanese Marshal Admiral (WWII), would be laughing in his boots at us today.  We have gone from “You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass” to “Everyone stay in your houses (Shelter in Place) and coward in fear while your government goes house to house violating the 4th Amendment in search of one man who has shut down an entire region of the country”.   This is what can be done to a disarmed society.

 

Remember, they will be sending guys with guns to take your guns

My Two Cents About Burning the Quran or Drawing Cartoons of Mohammad

My Two Cents About Burning the Quran or Drawing Cartoons of Mohammad

If Quran burning or drawing cartoons of Mohammad empowers muslims in fighting us, then did Walt Disney empower the Nazis when he made U.S. war propaganda cartoons? See the flawed logic?

I can just picture a Nazi soldier sitting in a foxhole being told Walt Disney drew Goofy to make the Nazis look like idiots, then raising his fist into the air declaring “Death to Americans, Allahu Hitler!”. Yep if it wasn’t for Disney, the Nazis may have been peaceful and willing to live in harmony with their neighbor countries.

Nero Obama Caesar and His Own Colosseum Games to Focus the People’s Attention from the Destruction of the State

Nero Obama Caesar and His Own Colosseum Games to Focus the People’s Attention from the Destruction of the State

Class warfare, war on women, war on corporations, Occupy, Trayvon Martin and black on white attacks, Obama has given the people “the games” in much like Nero Claudius Caesar did to the Romans as Rome burned.  Where each one of these examples is fueled by pure hatred rather then the cause it declares, and shouldn’t be ignored, look to is pulling the strings to cause the society to burn down.

During his Tuesday evening broadcast, Glenn Beck took a deeper look at the disturbing trend of violence being perpetrated against whites in the name of “justice for Trayvon.”

Beating of Alabama man not seen as hate crime, despite claim ‘Trayvon’ invoked


-From FoxNews

A racially charged beating of a white Alabama man by a throng of African-Americans is not being investigated as a hate crime, despite one witness’ claim that she heard an assailant exclaim: “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”

Matthew Owens, of Mobile, Ala., was assaulted with baseball bats, paint cans and other weapons at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday after telling a group of children to stop playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive, according to Ashley Rains, public information officer for the Mobile Police Department.

After the children left the area, a group of adults armed with weapons returned and confronted Owens, 40, in his front yard, where he was assaulted. Owens’ sister, Ashley Parker, told WKRG she witnessed the attack and that there were as many as 20 assailants. Parker said she overheard one of them say, “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”

Asked if the incident was being investigated as a hate crime, Rains replied: “No, it’s not. It’s being investigated as an assault.”

Eugene A. Seidel, first assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama, declined to comment on the case when reached by FoxNews.com.

“Our policy is not to comment one way or another about cases,” Seidel said when asked if his office has inquired about the incident. “All I can say is no comment.”

The incident occurred in a middle-class neighborhood in Mobile, on a street where residents have often been at odds with teens who block the roadway to play pickup basketball, WKRG reported. Owens has a criminal record that includes arrests for domestic assault, driving under the influence and public intoxication.

Trayvon Martin, 17, is the unarmed teenager who was fatally shot Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla. George Zimmerman, who has been charged with second-degree murder in Martin’s death, went into hiding Monday as he awaits trial. Emotions ran high as six weeks passed before Zimmerman was charged, leading many African-American community leaders to decry what they perceived as racism in the justice system.

Rains said Parker’s statement could not be independently corroborated as of Tuesday. Attempts to reach Parker — who reportedly characterized the assault as the “scariest thing” she ever witnessed — were unsuccessful.

“We have not been able to find any other witness that can back that statement up,” Rains told FoxNews.com. “It’s unknown right now if that was said.”

Owens, who regained consciousness early Tuesday, remains in serious condition at the University of South Alabama Medical Center, Rains said.

It remains unclear how many people participated in the assault, but Rains said it involved multiple assailants. The relationship — if any — between the children and the alleged perpetrators is also unclear, Rains said.

“We’ve spoken to the victim and we’re doing our best to put together a suspect list and identify any suspects that were in the assault,” she said.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Mobile Police Department at (251) 208-7211.

EXCLUSIVE Interview With Pastor Terry Jones About Qurans Burning on April 28 2012

EXCLUSIVE !!! Interview With Pastor Terry Jones About Qurans Burning on April 28 2012

Asking the questions one week before the burnings, that media will be asking the day after

Pastor Youcef Naderkhani is under the death sentence in Iran for apostasy. (Converting from Islam)  Where Pastor Youcef denies ever being Muslim, the accusations against him is that because Islam is in his “ancestry” any thing less then him publicly denouncing his current religion and declare himself Muslim, results in death by the state.

His death sentence has been delayed, and could happen any day.  Media outcry, a bill resolution in the congress and even a White House statement may well have been the reason for the sustaining of his life, but there also seems to have been a threat from Pastor Terry Jones’ church of burning Qurans and images of Mohammad if Pastor Youcef isn’t released.  Unlike any presidential statement or House resolution, this this comes with a deadline.  On April 28, 2012 at 5pm EST, if Pastor Youcef has not been released, multiple Qurans and even images of Mohammad will be burned by Terry Jones and his church.

Unlike uprisings against American soldiers by muslims after a Quran burning, cartoon drawing of Mohammad or any reason they deem justifiable to burn, destroy and kill,  this may have direct impact on Pastor Youcef’s life.  

This is what I wanted to get answers to. Our American soldiers have to deal with attacks all the time by muslims that didn’t require something to incite them, but Pastor Youcef is hanging on by a thread and this may be the tipping point for his life.  

In any “stand-off” where two sides have hostages, (Iran with Pastor Youcef and Pastor Terry Jones with the threat of burning Qurans and images) if one side “fires first” by taking out their hostage, there is no reason for the other side to keep their hostage with out penalty.  This is the very heart of the question I wanted Pastor Terry Jones to answer.

I was able to get an interview with Pastor Terry Jones and his son Luke Jones while they were holding a protest rally in Sanford, Fl about justice for George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin on Saturday April 20, 2012, one week before the rest of the media would be asking the same questions.

40 Yr Old White Man Beaten to Critical Condition by 20 Blacks on His Own Porch

40 Yr Old White Man Beaten to Critical Condition by 20 Blacks on His Own Porch

I guess I’m going to be able to post at least one of these type of stories per day now, it seems.

Get armed, stay armed. Better to be judged by 12 rather then carried by 6.

How, oh how is this one going to be spun to become justified?  Was he “profiling”? Was he “following”, against the orders of a dispatch officer?

From local15tv.com-

MOBILE, Alabama –

Mobile police need your help to catch a mob that beat Matthew Owens so badly that he’s in critical condition.

According to police, Owens fussed at some kids playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive about 8:30 Saturday night. They say the kids left and a group of adults returned, armed with everything but the kitchen sink.

Police tell News 5 the suspects used chairs, pipes and paint cans to beat Owens.

Owens’ sister, Ashley Parker, saw the attack. “It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed.” Parker says 20 people, all African American, attacked her brother on the front porch of his home, using “brass buckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on.”

Police will only say “multiple people” are involved.

What Parker says happened next could make the fallout from the brutal beating even worse. As the attackers walked away, leaving Owen bleeding on the ground, Parker says one of them said..

“Now thats justice for Trayvon.”

Trayvon Martin is the unarmed teenager police say was shot and killed February 26 by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida.

Police canvassed the area, but did not find any suspects. They’re asking anyone with information to call them at 251-208-7211, Crime Stoppers at 251-208-7000, or text a tip to 274637 and include the keyword CRIME 411.

Suspect: I Beat Up White Man Because I Am Mad About Trayvon Martin Case

Sun-Times Media Wire

Maywood, Ill. – Alton L. Hayes III, a west suburban man charged with a hate crime, told police he was so upset about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida that he beat up a white man early Tuesday.Hayes and a 15-year-old Chicago boy walked up behind the 19-year-old man victim and pinned his arms to his side, police said. Hayes, 18, then picked up a large tree branch, pointed it at the man and said, “Empty your pockets, white boy.”

The two allegedly rifled through the victim’s pockets, then threw him to the ground and punched him “numerous times” in the head and back before running away, police said. Hayes and the boy are black; the victim is white.

After being arrested, Hayes told police he was upset by the Trayvon Martin case and beat the man up because he was white, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said, citing court records.

Martin, 17, was fatally shot Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla., by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who was charged April 11 with second-degree murder. Zimmerman is Hispanic, while Martin was black.

Hayes, 18 of the 1200 block of North Woodbine Avenue in Oak Park, was charged with attempted robbery, aggravated battery and a hate crime, all felonies, Oak Park police Detective Cmdr. Ladon Reynolds said.

Hayes was ordered held on $80,000 bond and remained in the Cook County Jail on Friday. He will next appear in court May 11. The boy was referred to juvenile court.

What We Can Expect as the Steps to the Trayvon Martin – George Zimmerman Case

What We Can Expect as the Steps to the Trayvon Martin – George Zimmerman Case

STEP 1 – Now that Zimmerman is in custody, he has a “first appearance” before a judge

* Zimmerman had his first appearance at 1:30 p.m. Thursday April 12, 2012.
* First appearance hearings have to happen within 24 hours of someone’s arrest.
* The judge read the charges, so Zimmerman is clear about the crimes he is accused of.
* The judge addressed Zimmerman’s right to counsel.  Zimmerman has hired Mark O’Mara.

STEP 2 – Zimmerman’s bond

* Second-degree murder is considered a “nonbondable” offense because the maximum penalty is life in prison.
* Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, asked for an “Arthur hearing” in an attempt to get bond set.
* At the “Arthur hearing,” the burden was on the prosecutors to show that Zimmerman should not be given bond.

To meet that burden, they had to present evidence to support no bond.
If the prosecutors fail to meet the burden, the judge will look at other factors to decide whether to set bond. Those factors include Zimmerman’s ties to the community, whether he’s a flight risk and whether he’s a danger to the community.
* This hearing was an opportunity for the defense to see the prosecution’s evidence against Zimmerman.

—————————————————————————————————–

The Defense has yet to have discovery, so any evidence that the state is sitting on hasn’t been shown to the defense.  This was the first opportunity for the state to use any evidence they have that incriminates Zimmerman to keep him from being bonded out.  The state provided no evidence but rather relied on the affidavit which also provides no evidence.  The judge even said as much that he is more familiar with affidavits having more substance.  At this point every and any evidence that has come to light backs up Zimmerman’s claims.  The state, if it had damaging evidence against Zimmerman’s claims, had the opportunity to put Zimmerman’s bond request in jeopardy.  The state provided no evidence.  Why? Because the state was being nice?  Or, the state has absolutely no evidence that doesn’t actually support Zimmerman?  It seems the prosecution is standing on “Trayvon is dead because Zimmerman followed him, and caused Trayvon to attack Zimmerman.”  Lunacy!

—————————————————————————————————–

STEP 3 – Arraignment

* The arraignment appears to have been set for April 29, 20012.

* Zimmerman may or may not appear in open court for his arraignment.

Often the defendant will waive the appearance at the actual court hearing and his attorney can enter a written plea of not guilty on his behalf.
* Zimmerman will be arraigned and must enter a plea on the charges, most likely “not guilty” (at this stage, defendants almost never plead guilty).

In fact, O’Mara has already indicated that publicly.

STEP 4 – Defense files a motion to dismiss based on “stand your ground” law

* Zimmerman is entitled to a pretrial evidentiary hearing on whether he can use the stand your ground immunity.

* The burden at that hearing is on the defense to prove by “a preponderance of the evidence” (meaning it’s more likely than not) that Zimmerman was justified in using deadly force.

In Florida, an individual can use deadly force anywhere (with no duty to retreat) as long as he/she:
– is not engaged in an unlawful activity;

– is being attacked in a place he/she has a right to be; and

– reasonably believes that his/her life and safety is in danger.

* The judge decides whether Zimmerman’s actions were justified and therefore entitle him to the stand your ground immunity.

If the judge finds the force was justifiable, then the charges are dismissed and Zimmerman is immune from further criminal prosecution and, possibly, civil liability.
If the judge finds the force was not justifiable, then the charges against Zimmerman move forward (see steps 5 and 6 below)
* If the judge rules Zimmerman is immune, the prosecution can appeal that decision to a higher court.

—————————————————————————————————–

Zimmerman will probably not be found immune to prosecution due to ‘stand your ground’ due to a loophole the prosecution will attempt to create.

Florida Statutes:  JUSTIFIABLE USE OF FORCE 776.013 

(3) A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.

Here is where the loophole may be attempted. From the Defense argument, Zimmerman was returning to his vehicle and with Trayvon’s attack, prevented Zimmerman’s retreat.  In this scenario every aspect of the Stand your Ground statute has been fulfilled.  I suspect the prosecution will actually attempt to use the facts that Trayvon WAS on top of Zimmerman, so no ability to retreat was present, therefore Zimmerman couldn’t have “stood his ground”, and therefor this is a self defense case instead.

—————————————————————————————————–

“Stand your ground” vs. self-defense:
possible legal arguments in the case of State of Florida v. Zimmerman

Incident

Self-defense argument

“Stand your ground” argument

Neighborhood watch co-captain George Zimmerman sees a stranger in the Sanford community. He calls 911, pursues Martin to “keep eyes” on the suspect so to be able to relay proper information to the police and the operator cautions him not to follow. 

Partially relevant. Following Martin may  weaken the self-defense argument, but only if evidence is provided that shows Zimmerman initiated a confrontation with Martin. Prosecution also has to provide evidence that Zimmerman continued pursuit of Martin which is not currently supported by the 911 call, in that Zimmerman can clearly be heard ceasing his pursuit seconds after being suggested to do so and responds with “ok”.

Not relevant. Following somebody is not provocation to get punched.

Zimmerman is carrying a concealed weapon.

Not relevant.

Not relevant. Outside of Zimmerman’s legal right to carry a firearm, Zimmerman was also not “on duty” in the capacity as a neighborhood watchmen when this situation occurred. If he had been “on duty”, it would have been a violation of Neighborhood Watch code of conduct, which may have resulted in Zimmerman’s dismissal from the Neighborhood Watch, but would still not have been a crime.

Zimmerman allegedly confronts Trayvon Martin.

Relevant. Under Florida law if you are the first aggressor in a confrontation, you forfeit the right to self-defense. The prosecution would have to provide evidence that Zimmerman was the first physical aggressor. Again, following some one doesn’t fulfill the definition as being the first aggressor. Following somebody is not provocation to get punched.

Relevant.

Zimmerman claims he was returning to his truck when Martin confronted him, then punched him.

Relevant. According to George Zimmerman’s version, he was punched without provocation. Following somebody is not provocation to get punched. While  on the ground being pinned and having his (Zimmerman’s) head slammed into the concrete, he couldn’t retreat even under the old law if he wanted to.

Relevant. This is where Martin can stand his ground and not retreat into the car.

According to Zimmerman, Martin punches him and brings him to the ground.

Relevant.

Relevant. “The real issue [in Stand Your Ground] is what happens around the 60 seconds prior to the shooting.” (Ed Griffith, a spokesman for the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office,Tampa Bay Times)

Someone is heard in the 911 tapes calling for help.

Relevant. If it’s Zimmerman, it bolsters self-defense. If it’s Martin, it undermines self-defense.

Relevant. If it’s Zimmerman, it bolsters self-defense. It presents Zimmerman using deadly force as a last resort, in that, in the 911 tapes a person can be heard screaming for help for 45 seconds.  This doesn’t include the amount of time that preceded the beginning of the recording, that caused the caller to make the 911 call.  This would not support a claim that Zimmerman hunted Martin down.

If it’s Martin, it undermines self-defense.

Aspects of the prosecution’s arguments that George Zimmerman pursued Trayvon Martin do not meet the required “First Aggressor” standards that would void ‘stand your ground’.  Furthermore the argument that following anyone deletes a person’s ability to self defend is ridicules.  This would mean that Zimmerman would’ve had to have fore-knowledge that Trayvon was going to attack him and that he was choosing to place himself in peril.   All citizens have an expectation, if legally within property, not to be attacked by another person.  Just as words or an argument has never been a justification for physical aggression in the courts, so too is pursuing a person not justification.  If this was so, there would be a lot of cases dealing with a member of the media being physically attacked because they asked questions that angered the attacker and/or pursuing the attacker in attempt to gain an interview or answers.  The cases would be thrown out because the media person basically “had it coming to them”. This is obviously not the case. In a nut shell, no matter what your “feelings” are, no one has justifiable rights to attack someone because they are annoying, saying things that anger you or following.  Trayvon Martin meets none of the aspects of ‘stand your ground’ besides having the right to be where he was. 

Zimmerman’s police call: The “pursuit” starts at 2:05

911 calls before the shot:

STEP 5 – Pretrial

* Both the prosecution and defense could file a slew of pretrial motions in the case that deal with anything and everything from turning over documents and evidence to keeping certain evidence out at trial. It is too early to tell.

STEP 6 – Trial

* Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder.

To convict someone of second-degree murder prosecutors have to prove several things beyond a reasonable doubt.
– First, that Trayvon Martin is dead.

– Second, that George Zimmerman’s criminal act caused Trayvon Martin’s death.

– Third, that Zimmerman knew his actions were reasonably certain to kill, that he committed the act with a depraved mind and the act itself was indifferent to human life.

NOTE: Prosecutors do not have to prove that Zimmerman intended to kill Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman could assert self-defense at trial, but the burden is on the prosecution to prove that it wasn’t self defense beyond a reasonable doubt.

The jury will have to consider the circumstances surrounding the killing and decide whether it was second-degree murder or a justifiable use of deadly force.
The jury could also look at lesser-included offenses. At some point during or after the trial, the attorneys will meet with the judge in what is called a “charging conference” to argue which legal instruction the judge will give the jurors. We will not know which lesser-included offenses will be given to the jury until then.
* It is too early to tell what lesser charges the evidence may support, but one possibility is manslaughter.

To convict someone of manslaughter, prosecutors have to prove two things beyond a reasonable doubt:
– that Trayvon Martin is dead AND
– that Zimmerman’s acts caused Trayvon Martin’s death

NOTE: Manslaughter does not require that it be an intentional killing, only that the act that caused death was intentional and not justified or excusable.

Zimmerman could assert self-defense at trial, but the burden is on the prosecution to prove that it wasn’t self defense beyond a reasonable doubt.
The jury will have to consider the circumstances surrounding the killing and decide whether it was manslaughter or a justifiable use of deadly force.
NOTE: In the charging document, Corey alleges that Zimmerman killed Martin with a gun. That is important, because if the jury does convict Zimmerman of the lesser charge of manslaughter, using a gun increases the penalty that Zimmerman would face on a manslaughter conviction.

If convicted of second-degree murder, Zimmerman faces a sentence of 25 years to life in prison without parole.

—————————————————————————————————–

Now if and when Zimmerman is acquitted, Eric Holder and the full force of the United States Attorney General’s office will come down upon Zimmerman with racial profiling charges.  This, like many other lawsuits  from the government with unlimited funds, is meant as a ceremonial crushing and punishment of Zimmerman for being found not guilty. Zimmerman will be required to put forth a defense against Federal charges that is meant to drain any and all funds, as it will be dragged out as long as possible. 

Zimmerman has been found guilty in the media and by some high ranking members of government so he will be punished by one mean or the other, even if is found not guilty in criminal, civil and federal courts.

Negroes With Guns

Negroes With Guns

 Written By : Ann Coulter

Liberals have leapt on the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida to push for the repeal of “stand your ground” laws and to demand tighter gun control. (MSNBC’S Karen Finney blamed “the same people who stymied gun regulation at every point.”)

This would be like demanding more funding for the General Services Administration after seeing how its employees blew taxpayer money on a party weekend in Las Vegas.

We don’t know the facts yet, but let’s assume the conclusion MSNBC is leaping to is accurate: George Zimmerman stalked a small black child and murdered him in cold blood, just because he was black.

If that were true, every black person in America should get a gun and join the National Rifle Association, America’s oldest and most august civil rights organization.

Apparently this has occurred to no one because our excellent public education system ensures that no American under the age of 60 has the slightest notion of this country’s history.

Gun control laws were originally promulgated by Democrats to keep guns out of the hands of blacks. This allowed the Democratic policy of slavery to proceed with fewer bumps and, after the Civil War, allowed the Democratic Ku Klux Klan to menace and murder black Americans with little resistance.

(Contrary to what illiterates believe, the KKK was an outgrowth of the Democratic Party, with overlapping membership rolls. The Klan was to the Democrats what the American Civil Liberties Union is today: Not every Democrat is an ACLU’er, but every ACLU’er is a Democrat. Same with the Klan.)

In 1640, the very first gun control law ever enacted on these shores was passed in Virginia. It provided that blacks — even freemen — could not own guns.

Chief Justice Roger Taney’s infamous opinion in Dred Scott v. Sandford circularly argued that blacks could not be citizens because if they were citizens, they would have the right to own guns: “[I]t would give them the full liberty,” he said, “to keep and carry arms wherever they went.”

With logic like that, Republicans eventually had to fight a Civil War to get the Democrats to give up slavery.

Alas, they were Democrats, so they cheated.

After the war, Democratic legislatures enacted “Black Codes,” denying black Americans the right of citizenship — such as the rather crucial one of bearing arms — while other Democrats (sometimes the same Democrats) founded the Ku Klux Klan.

For more than a hundred years, Republicans have aggressively supported arming blacks, so they could defend themselves against Democrats.

The original draft of the Anti-Klan Act of 1871 — passed at the urging of Republican president Ulysses S. Grant — made it a federal felony to “deprive any citizen of the United States of any arms or weapons he may have in his house or possession for the defense of his person, family, or property.” This section was deleted from the final bill only because it was deemed both beyond Congress’ authority and superfluous, inasmuch as the rights of citizenship included the right to bear arms.

Under authority of the Anti-Klan Act, President Grant deployed the U.S. military to destroy the Klan, and pretty nearly completed the job.

But the Klan had a few resurgences in the early and mid-20th century. Curiously, wherever the Klan became a political force, gun control laws would suddenly appear on the books.

This will give you an idea of how gun control laws worked. Following the firebombing of his house in 1956, Dr. Martin Luther King, who was, among other things, a Christian minister, applied for a gun permit, but the Alabama authorities found him unsuitable. A decade later, he won a Nobel Peace Prize.

How’s that “may issue” gun permit policy working for you?

The NRA opposed these discretionary gun permit laws and proceeded to grant NRA charters to blacks who sought to defend themselves from Klan violence — including the great civil rights hero Robert F. Williams.

A World War II Marine veteran, Williams returned home to Monroe, N.C., to find the Klan riding high — beating, lynching and murdering blacks at will. No one would join the NAACP for fear of Klan reprisals. Williams became president of the local chapter and increased membership from six to more than 200.

But it was not until he got a charter from the NRA in 1957 and founded the Black Armed Guard that the Klan got their comeuppance in Monroe.

Williams’ repeated thwarting of violent Klan attacks is described in his stirring book, “Negroes With Guns.” In one crucial battle, the Klan sieged the home of a black physician and his wife, but Williams and his Black Armed Guard stood sentry and repelled the larger, cowardly force. And that was the end of it.

As the Klan found out, it’s not so much fun when the rabbit’s got the gun.

The NRA’s proud history of fighting the Klan has been airbrushed out of the record by those who were complicit with the KKK, Jim Crow and racial terror, to wit: the Democrats.

In the preface to “Negroes With Guns,” Williams writes: “I have asserted the right of Negroes to meet the violence of the Ku Klux Klan by armed self-defense — and have acted on it. It has always been an accepted right of Americans, as the history of our Western states proves, that where the law is unable, or unwilling, to enforce order, the citizens can, and must act in self-defense against lawless violence.”

Contrary to MSNBC hosts, I do not believe the shooting in Florida is evidence of a resurgent KKK. But wherever the truth lies in that case, gun control is always a scheme of the powerful to deprive the powerless of the right to self-defense.

Those Damn Dirty Apes: Progressives see Victory with ALEC Disbanding Non-Economic Task Force

Those Damn Dirty Apes: Progressives see Victory with ALEC Disbanding Non-Economic Task Force

A Progressive Victory? ALEC Disbands Non Economic Task Force
Some of the sponsors that abandoned ALEC

by Becket Adams  at The Blaze

The campaign against the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) has paid off: “The American Legislative Exchange Council will disband the task force that tackled non-economic issues [i.e. voter ID and “stand your ground” laws],” Hot Air’s Tina Korbe report.

David Frizzell, Indiana State Representative and 2012 National Chairman of ALEC, issued the following statement today (via ALEC’s website):

Today we are redoubling our efforts on the economic front, a priority that has been the hallmark of our organization for decades. Fostering the exchange of pro-growth, solutions-oriented ideas is precisely why ALEC exists.

To that end, our legislative board last week unanimously agreed to further our work on policies that will help spur innovation and competitiveness across the country.

We are refocusing our commitment to free-market, limited government and pro-growth principles, and have made changes internally to reflect this renewed focus.

We are eliminating the ALEC Public Safety and Elections task force that dealt with non-economic issues, and reinvesting these resources in the task forces that focus on the economy. The remaining budgetary and economic issues will be reassigned.

While we recognize there are other critical, non-economic issues that are vitally important to millions of Americans, we believe we must concentrate on initiatives that spur competitiveness and innovation and put more Americans back to work.

Our free-market, limited government, pro-growth policies are the reason ALEC enjoys the support of legislators on both sides of the aisle and in all 50 states. ALEC members are interested in solutions that put the American economy back on track. This is our mission, and it is what distinguishes us.

Translation: because groups like Color of Change and the the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) successfully incited a mass exodus of sponsors, ALEC has been forced to bow out of certain issues.

Unsurprisingly, liberal activists groups who have long targeted ALEC cheered the decision, viewing it, in part, as a victory (with ThinkProgress referring to it as a“progressive victory”) for their campaign to get “corporations and other groups to drop their support for the Washington, D.C.-based organization,” the AP reports.

ALEC believes it has been unfairly targeted as part of a broader campaign against its conservative agenda.

“This is an all-out intimidation campaign designed to promote government-based solutions rather than the free-market principles that we have seen work,” said Ron Scheberle, the group’s executive director.

Lisa Graves, a leader at the Center for Media and Democracy who has been targeting ALEC over the past year, said the announcement was unexpected but likely a public relations move.

So where does this put us?

“ALEC’s decision was an unfortunate one, but, under the circumstances, it does make sense,” Korbe writes. “They have a vested interest in keeping their focus narrow so as to retain support on both sides of the aisle and to continue to be effective at influencing legislation at the state level.”

She continues:

… ALEC’s decision to sharpen its focus on economic issues doesn’t exonerate the corporations who succumbed to outside special interest groups to go against their own interests…McDonald’s, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Intuit, Kraft, Arby’s and Walgreens showed their true colors when they quickly abandoned ALEC. Apparently, they prioritize political correctness above all — even above free and fair elections, not to mention the free markets that enabled the success of such corporations in the first place.

They want us unarmed, unable to self defend, they want us to shut up and allow any voting fraud to take place so they can shape the humanity in the way they want.  Stupid fools. Using methods to destroy the rights they cherish, thinking they will be kings and queens, only to be slaves to bondage and no means to defend themselves.

1912 Titanic Disaster: Was Racism To Blame?

As the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic approaches, new shocking evidence has surfaced that a racist vendetta was at the epicenter of the disaster.

NBC News is about to release a mostly unedited Morse Code transcript of messages between the Newfoundland Emergency Operator and the Titanic’s Captain, George White, moments before the fatal altercation:

Operator: Newfoundland SOS, what is your emergency?

Titanic: This is George White, skipper of the Titanic. I’m on neighborhood watch in the North Atlantic. It’s dark out and I think I see an iceberg.

Operator: An iceberg? Can you describe it?

TitanicIt’s big…. there’s no moon out tonight… It looks black!

President Barack Obama: 

“This is evidence of a GOP ‘War on Ice,’ which is an attempt to exacerbate global warming. We can’t allow the forces aligned with Big Coal to sabotage our invest-ments in newest sailing technologies, such as wind.”


VP Joe Biden:

“NOW I know why Herbert Hoover was laughing when he announced this disaster on television!”


It is believed the enraged White, who happened to be white, pursued the iceberg instead of turning the ship to avoid it as the operator suggested. The situation deteriorated quickly and within hours, the Titanic had sunk taking with it thousands of passengers, many of them wealthy people who deserved it.

White’s defenders will probably argue that it is almost impossible to turn a large vessel quickly and the confrontation was unfortunate but unavoidable. However, the historical record indicates White was driving the ship too fast and was in an area it shouldn’t have been in to begin with, as other neighborhood watch craft in the area had broadcast iceberg sightings earlier in the evening.

It is likely that White, harboring deep-seated hatred for ice, deliberately sought out a large iceberg in an attempt to provoke a quarrel and incite violence.

Experts fear the new revelations will lead to an anti-ice backlash and warn against citizens refusing ice in their drinks or de-frosting refrigerators too often in a display of disrespect to the iceberg community.

Reaction from other concerned parties to the new evidence has been swift and pointed.

NYC Mayor Bloomberg: 

“We must increase government ship controls. Most of the ship disasters in New York Harbor are caused by ships from other places, and this terror ship was heading for New York as well. In fact, the only way to protect people from sinking is to lock them in their houses. They can come out when I say it’s safe to come out.”

Special Prosecutor Angela Corey:

“I intend to charge White with second-degree ice-breaking as soon as I can rent a scuba tank.”

 DPRK Leader Kim Jung Un:

 “At least when we launch stuff, it hits the water, not icebergs.”

The late Ted Kennedy, speaking through a psychic: 

“I have a piece of advice for White: publicly support pro-ice causes and then you can make chopped ice whenever you want in your private life.”

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton: 

Have announced plans to charter boats and picket the site of the fatal encounter, and Spike Lee vowed to tweet the location to all his followers as soon as someone relays to him the exact point in the Pacific Ocean where the ship sunk.

The People’s media will have more on this story as we develop it develops.

Horror… To Ease Gas Prices Barack Obama Moves to Control Oil Industry

Horror… To Ease Gas Prices Barack Obama Moves to Control Oil Industry

Posted by Jim Hoft at thegatewaypundit

But he’s not a socialist.

Barack Obama has a new plan to ease gas prices – He wants to take control of oil industry.

It’s the Maxine Waters’ plan.

Obama wants more government control on oil industry.
FOX News reported, via Free Republic:

Under pressure to take action on rising gasoline prices, President Obama wants Congress to strengthen federal supervision of oil markets, increase penalties for market manipulation and empower regulators to increase the amount of money energy traders are required to put behind their transactions.

The White House plan, which Obama was to unveil Tuesday, is more likely to draw sharp election-year distinctions with Republicans than have an immediate effect on prices at the pump. The measures seek to boost spending for Wall Street enforcement at a time when congressional Republicans are seeking to limit the reach of federal financial regulations.

Obama plans to spell out his $52 million proposal Tuesday at the White House, where he will be joined by Attorney General Eric Holder.

Republicans have been hammering Obama on his energy policies, recognizing the political cost of high gas prices on the president. Obama’s plan would turn the tables on Republicans by taking aim at Wall Street’s role in the oil price chain.

Senior administration officials who put together the proposal said it aims to detect and deter illegal manipulation by energy speculators, the type of practices that many Democrats blame for the high cost of gasoline. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the plan ahead of Obama’s announcement.

This way he can stifle production even further!

Schoolgirls in Afghanistan poisoned in anti-education attack; Taliban laughs at Obama’s charge of GOP War on Women

Schoolgirls in Afghanistan poisoned in anti-education attack; Taliban laughs at Obama’s charge of GOP War on Women

By Mohammad Hamid

KUNDUZ, Afghanistan

(Reuters) – About 150 Afghan schoolgirls were poisoned on Tuesday after drinking contaminated water at a high school in the country’s north, officials said, blaming it on conservative radicals opposed to female education.

Since the 2001 toppling of the Taliban, which banned education for women and girls, females have returned to schools, especially in Kabul.

But periodic attacks still occur against girls, teachers and their school buildings, usually in the more conservative south and east of the country, from where the Taliban insurgency draws most support.

“We are 100 percent sure that the water they drunk inside their classes was poisoned. This is either the work of those who are against girls’ education or irresponsible armed individuals,” said Jan Mohammad Nabizada, a spokesman for education department in northern Takhar province.

Some of the 150 girls, who suffered from headaches and vomiting, were in critical condition, while others were able to go home after treatment in hospital, the officials said.

They said they knew the water had been poisoned because a larger tank used to fill the affected water jugs was not contaminated.

“This is not a natural illness. It’s an intentional act to poison schoolgirls,” said Haffizullah Safi, head of Takhar’s public health department.

None of the officials blamed any particular group for the attack, fearing retribution from anyone named.

The Afghan government said last year that the Taliban, which has been trying to adopt a more moderate face to advance exploratory peace talks, had dropped its opposition to female education.

But the insurgency has never stated that explicitly and in the past acid has been thrown in the faces of women and girls by hardline Islamists while walking to school.

Education for women was outlawed by the Taliban government from 1996-2001 as un-Islamic.
