“Stop The Violence” Organizers Arrested For Beating Fellow Organizer

Progra4Stop-the-Violence-1024x715

Irony so thick, you need the jaws of life to cut through it…

Two “Stop the Violence” organizers allegedly beat one of their colleagues so severely that he vomited blood and was left unconscious in critical condition.

Nikole Ardeno and Emanuel Velez, both 30, accused their former roommate of stealing their property, and allegedly punched and kicked him in the street until he had seizures. Arrested moments later, Ardeno was still wearing the same “Stop the Violence” T-shirt she had on the night before when she coordinated a march protesting two recent shootings, Washington Police Chief Chris Luppino said.

The victim, Joshua Magraff, also is a community organizer with the anti-violence group, and shared an apartment with the suspects until recently.

Online court records don’t list lawyers for the defendants, who face a preliminary hearing Nov. 10 on charges of aggravated assault, conspiracy, simple assault and disorderly conduct.

AGW The Religion: Envirotards Have “Pre-Traumatic Stress Disorder”

ecotard

I don’t give a shit if AGW is the realest, most-unimaginable horror show ever dreamed up – it is not an immediate threat and these people are fucking idiots.

Pre-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Someone who presumably gets paid for her insights into the human mind, actually believes that you can suffer from debilitating stress related to something that may or may-not materialize 500 years from now. The desire of these bed-wetters to be victims is getting out of hand. With this level of stupid floating around, we may be fast approaching the days when we have to give them real PTSD.

Two years ago, Camille Parmesan, a professor at Plymouth University and the University of Texas at Austin, became so “professionally depressed” that she questioned abandoning her research in climate change entirely.[...]

Parmesan certainly isn’t the first to experience some sort of climate-change blues. From depression to substance abuse to suicide and post-traumatic stress disorder, growing bodies of research in the relatively new field of psychology of global warming suggest that climate change will take a pretty heavy toll on the human psyche as storms become more destructive and droughts more prolonged. For your everyday environmentalist, the emotional stress suffered by a rapidly changing Earth can result in some pretty substantial anxieties. [...]

“I don’t know of a single scientist that’s not having an emotional reaction to what is being lost,” Parmesan is quoted saying in the National Wildlife Federation’s 2012 report, “The Psychological Effects of Global Warming on the United States: And Why the U.S. Mental Health Care System is Not Adequately Prepared.” “It’s gotten to be so depressing that I’m not sure I’m going to go back to this particular site again,” she says, referring to an ocean reef she has studied since 2002, “because I just know I’m going to see more and more of it dead, and bleached, and covered with brown algae.”

Lise Van Susteren, a forensic psychiatrist based in Washington, D.C. — and co-author of the National Wildlife Federation’s report — calls this emotional reaction “pre-traumatic stress disorder,” a term she coined to describe the mental anguish that results from preparing for the worst, before it actually happens.

I would say that there is no way this is real, but sadly, I know better.

24 Man SWAT Team Raids Citizens Over Trash/Ordinance

The Marathon County SWAT vehicle arrives to confiscate property from elderly Roger Hoeppner. (Photo: Ryan Lister)

I’m curious to see what folks have to say on this one. I have opinions, but I don’t want to influence the discussion.

The six-year legal fight is summarized by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

In 2008, the town sued Hoeppner over claimed violations of ordinances about zoning, signs, rubbish and vehicles. About a year later, the two sides settled; Hoeppner was supposed to clean up his property, and the town was supposed to open discussions about its zoning.

The town felt Hoeppner had not complied, and it brought a motion for contempt and enforcement. In September 2010, a judge ordered Hoeppner to remove certain items from his land.

The following May, the judge found Hoeppner had still not complied and authorized the town to seize assets. In the summer of 2011, the town hauled away several tractors, pallets, equipment and other items and auctioned them off for “pennies on the dollar,” according to Lister.

But the dispute wasn’t over. In April 2013, the judge entered a final judgment that imposed a $500-a-day fine against Hoeppner for not adhering to the original May 2011 order, and granting the town’s legal fees.

Hoeppner appealed, but lost in a March ruling. So by Oct. 2, he owed the town about $80,000, according to court records, and the Town of Stettin obtained a writ of execution to collect — without notice to Hoeppner or his attorneys, they say.

The reporting site had this to say:

The lawful oppression of the Hoeppners — which cost the couple $200,000 in legal fees and fines — perfectly illustrates the inherent injustice of zoning ordinances. When petty tyrants are able to dictate the rules for other people’s private property, homeowners are faced with a choice to submit or potentially lose everything, even over the most menial of complaints.

Washington Post:

Hispanics on a GOP Senate: Sure, why not?

Reps

survey

This number jumped out at me from the new Washington Post/ABC News poll: It showed that, among Latinos, 50 percent say it doesn’t matter who wins the Senate come November. And among those who do think it will matter, twice as many say it would be a good thing (30 percent) if the GOP took over as say it would be a bad thing (15 percent).

This is a demographic, we will remind you, that voted 71-27 for President Obama just two years ago. And only 15 percent are concerned about a GOP-controlled Senate.”

Zombies “R” Us

zombies

A couple weeks ago I posted an article about the fact that the Centers for Disease Control had wasted a ton of money preparing a Zombie Preparedness Publication.

Now it seems that the left in our country is using the term, “Zombie” to refer to Bible totin’, gun owning, Conservatives. There has been evidence of this all along. Short films have been posted that call us and our leaders zombies.

Here is ‘Tea Party Zombies Must Die’. Also here is New York Times’ opinion writer Maureen Dowd’s column titled, ‘Ted Cruz’ Thunderdome‘ complete with this artwork:

ted cruz' thunderdome

There are plenty of other examples of us being dehumanized into the walking dead. On the surface it all looks like childish fun. But now we are seeing Obama administration offices making plans for when we zombies attack.

This is from the Rutherford Institute:

Zombies Are Us: The Walking Dead in the American Police State

For years now, the government has been carrying out military training drills with zombies as the enemy. In 2011, the DOD created a 31-page instruction manual for how to protect America from a terrorist attack carried out by zombie forces. In 2012, the CDC released a guide for surviving a zombie plague. That was followed by training drills for members of the military, police officers and first responders.”

What other actions?

So how does the military plan to put down a zombie (a.k.a. disgruntled citizen) uprising?

The strategy manual outlines five phases necessary for a counter-offensive: shape, deter, seize initiative, dominate, stabilize and restore civil authority.”

And the Institute’s conclusion:

If there is any lesson to be learned, it is simply this: whether the threat to national security comes in the form of actual terrorists, imaginary zombies or disgruntled American citizens infected with dangerous ideas about freedom, the government’s response to such threats remains the same: detect, deter and annihilate.”

Scary indeed if our government is planning for eliminating dissenters – but not too surprising.

‘Improving’ The United States

This image is from 90 Miles From Tyranny:

obama improved us

Of course the vomit image could be a reference to Ebola or it could be a reaction to Michelle’s claim. Americans across the country consider his efforts to have been spectacular failures.

But they’re not. They are successes.

Not long ago president Obama commented that his successes are, “Just not being reported”. If you examine his goals he may well be right.

He told us up front that he wanted to remake America. Observers have told us also that his goals for the country are to reduce its world position and to convert the country’s economy into something the opposite of a free, capitalist one.

If these are his goals, and I believe they are, he is succeeding. Michelle’s comment above makes a lot of sense in that light.

We should not try to determine whether he is succeeding or not based upon our definitions of success. He has a different view.

Update: Obama Promises to Solve Ebola ‘Just Like We’ve Solved Every Other Problem’

It was Obama’s Chief of Staff who said, “Never let a crisis go to waste”.

Nine US Cities Experiencing ‘Black Flight’

Maybe it’s just me but this surprised me for some reason. Maybe it’s that I never thought I’d see something like this actually Reported. In reflection, though, it seems that black people are no different than any other Americans. They want to avoid danger, they want to search for opportunity, and they are willing to go where things are better.

What’s interesting in this report is that the direction of movement has changed. Like many other Americans they are heading south.

Times have changed. There was a time when southern states were considered to be the most racially divided.

What it looks like is they are fleeing places that have been controlled by Democrats for decades. I’d say that is smart. This report comes from the Atlanta Black Star:

In the 1990s, Black Americans began moving in significant numbers to the South. This marked a reversal of the Great Migration, in which Blacks fled Jim Crow racism in the 1920s and 1930s for jobs in the industrial cities of the Northeast, Midwest and West.

Analysis of 2010 census data shows that more than half the cities with large concentrations of Blacks have seen significant declines in their Black populations. Here are nine of those cities experiencing elevated levels of Black Flight.”

detroit1-600x330

The cities that have fewer blacks are:

New York which has 41,000 fewer blacks than in 2000.

Chicago which has lost 181,000. An interesting fact is that Chicago’s population is now down to the level it was in 1910.

Los Angeles has lost more than 120,000.

Washington D.C. is down 8%.

And of course Detroit has lost 185,000.

The other cities are San Francisco, Boston, Oakland, California, and Dallas.

Officer MacLeod is a little confused

This police officer has confused “respect for the law” with “respect for Officer MacLeod”. When police officers get confused in that manner, they become dangerous.

Granted, we haven’t seen the whole encounter and it may very well be the “God bless you” was sarcastic as hell, still, the kid’s comment doesn’t really strike me as fighting words.

Doctors bailing out of Obamacare

They want no part if it.

Over 214,000 doctors won’t participate in the new plans under the Affordable Care Act (ACA,) analysis of a new survey by Medical Group Management Association shows. That number of 214,524, estimated by American Action Forum, is through May 2014, but appears to be growing due to plans that force doctors to take on burdensome costs. It’s also about a quarter of the total number of 893,851 active professional physicians reported by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

In January, an estimated 70% of California’s physicians were not participating in Covered California plans.

There are three reasons they are bailing

1) Substantially lower reimbursement rates
2) A significant risk of not getting paid at all
3) Sicker patients that cost more to care for

To Obamacare users: Congratulations. You have insurance. Now try to use it.

La Raza publishes helpful voting guide

The group supporting illegal immigrants has offered them a helpful guide as to where they can vote in America without an ID.

The pro-amnesty Hispanic activist organization the National Council of La Raza helpfully promoted a Washington Post article explaining which states people can vote in without having to use a photo ID.

“Voter ID laws are at-issue across the country, with newly Republican-controlled legislatures having passed them in numerous states after the 2010 election,” explained The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake. “Most states still request some form of ID, but don’t require it. Another 20 states don’t require identification.

Meanwhile, you need an ID to buy Sinutab in all 50 states.

Homeland Security is really cracking down hard!

The US Border Patrol is getting deadly serious about illegal border crossings.

U.S. Border Patrol agents slapped a $5,000 fine on an American citizen this week for slipping into the United States from Canada on a mountain bike, the agency announced Wednesday.

The 40-year-old American and his 44-year-old Canadian companion were nabbed Sunday near Houlton, Maine, after allegedly biking across the border south of Notre Dame, Canada, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

A Border Patrol agent spotted the two men at about 2:30 p.m. with mountain bikes on a dirt road near the border. After questioning the suspects, the agent arrested them for illegally crossing the border.

Each was fined $5,000, said CBP.

Alarmists to ‘fast-track’ bad weather as global warming

Remember when it was freezing cold and somebody would say, “well, so much for global warming”. The alarmists would always say, “there is a difference between weather and the climate and this is just weather”.

Now the alarmists have a new plan: Any bad weather can be immediately attributed to global warming. Good weather will be ignored.

Environmental scientists want to introduce a new system to prove that adverse weather events are directly linked to climate change to counter global warming sceptics.

Under the new plan, a heatwave or major storm will be linked scientifically to man made climate change immediately after the event to prevent critics from blaming it on natural variations in the weather.

Scientists want to be able to provide proof of whether an event was caused by climate change within three day rather than the current system which can take up to a year.

“A Safety Message for Civilians” From Saint Louis Coptalk Blog

A QuikTrip convenience store burns during a night of rioting in Ferguson, Missouri

The people in Saint Louis County, Missouri are worried about the possibility of violence in their streets if the Grand Jury does not indict the police office who shot Michael Brown. The police are concerned as well. They know they will not be able to keep citizens safe from violent acts. They are warning people that their safety and that of their loved ones, is in their hands.

Here is a link to the Saint Louis Coptalk blog. The message, posted by ‘A Concerned Cop’ reads,

If you don’t have a gun, get one and get one soon. We will not be able to protect you or your family. It will be your responsibility to protect them. Our gutless commanders and politicians have neutered us. I’m serious, get a gun, get more than one, and keep one with you at all times.”

If Orwell Had Written ‘1984’ With SarahPalin In Mind

This is interesting. It very accurately describes the visceral hate for Palin that exists in the mind of leftists but must be fed with a daily dose of hate from their leaders. That is what CNN’s Carol Costello was doing when she programmed her viewers to be happy about Palin’s daughter being attacked.

1984-two-minutes-hate-02-500

It was nearly eleven hundred, and in the Records Department, where Winston worked, they were dragging the chairs out of the cubicles and grouping them in the center of the hall opposite the big telescreen, in preparation for the Two Minutes Hate.

The next moment a hideous, grinding speech, as of some monstrous machine running without oil, burst from the big telescreen at the end of the room. It was a noise that set one’s teeth on edge and bristled the hair at the back of one’s neck. The Hate had started.

As usual, the face of Sarah Palin, the Enemy of the Democratic Party and the Main Stream Media and especially leftist bloggers, had flashed on to the screen. There were hisses here and there among the audience. A little red-haired woman journalist gave a squeak of mingled fear and disgust. Palin was the renegade, one of the leading figures of the Republican Party, almost on a level with the near mythological figure “Reagan”, and had engaged in counter-liberal activities, had been condemned to irrelevancy, but had mysteriously escaped from liberal media attacks and gained a mass following. The programmes of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Palin was not the principal figure. She was the primal enemy, the defiler of the Party’s plans including the Death Panels.”

Ebola nurse won’t stay home..

She is refusing voluntary isolation.

Kaci Hickox, the Ebola nurse who was forcibly held in an isolation tent in New Jersey for three days, says she will not obey instructions to remain at home in Maine for 21 days.

“I don’t plan on sticking to the guidelines,” Hickox tells TODAY’s Matt Lauer. “I am not going to sit around and be bullied by politicians and forced to stay in my home when I am not a risk to the American public.”

Maine health officials have said they expect her to agree to be quarantined at her home for a 21-day period. The Bangor Daily News reports.

But Hickox tells TODAY she will pursue legal action if Maine forces her into continued isolation. “If the restrictions placed on me by the state of Maine are not lifted by Thursday morning, I will go to court to fight for my freedom,” she says.

Ah, yes. She is wrapping herself in the mantle of liberty and freedom. Because freedom carries no responsibility to your neighbors or fellow man. Freedom means doing what you want, when you want, others be damned. Because freedom is your right and everybody knows there are no responsibilities associated with rights.

The Feminist Utopia

A radical feminist tries to lay out a vision for a better tomorrow: Men regulated almost out of existence.

All of men’s (alive and euthanised) belongings, property, resources and land will be confiscated from men and handed back to female care and supervision – property rights over land will be abolished. You can’t own land!

All men at least above 15 (or younger if very asocial) should live separately from women and children, on their own in small huts or studios, isolated from one another and scattered around so that women can keep an eye on them (they should never be in groups or packs, that would be illegal). So it would also be illegal for male adults to impose their presence on females, girls and children. Men would have to care for themselves on their own: food, laundry, etc. No male above his age of puberty would be allowed to receive any kind of service from a female. Their life expectancy would probably drop to the age of 40, but that’s how things should be. Women’s life expectancy without men would rise to 130 years at least.

PIV would be illegal too of course, as well as the initiation of any verbal or physical contact to women and girls or boy children, unless solicited by a woman for specific matters. I’m not sure what to do about boy children. Obviously you know my opinion, but let’s say that’s up to the mother to decide what she wants to do before he turns of age to leave the female family circle.

In order to keep all men and post-pubescent boys busy, we’d send them to clean up the vast amounts of detritus, pollution and toxic wastes men have littered and almost killed the world with. Much of the damage to the earth is irreversible, however with a great deal of effort and genius, women will find sustainable, natural and simple ways of healing a lot of the damage men have caused, and send men off to do the dirty work. No man will be allowed to take any decision without female guidance. We know what happens when men decide on their own! DISASTER.

You really should read it all. It’s a hoot.

US plans to bring foreign Ebola patients to US

Sure. Why not? What’s the worst that could happen?

The State Department has quietly made plans to bring Ebola-infected doctors and medical aides to the U.S. for treatment, according to an internal department document that argued the only way to get other countries to send medical teams to West Africa is to promise that the U.S. will be the world’s medical backstop.

Some countries “are implicitly or explicitly waiting for medevac assurances” before they will agree to send their own medical teams to join U.S. and U.N. aid workers on the ground, the State Department argues in the undated four-page memo, which was reviewed by The Washington Times.

“The United States needs to show leadership and act as we are asking others to act by admitting certain non-citizens into the country for medical treatment for Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) during the Ebola crisis,” says the four-page memo, which lists as its author Robert Sorenson, deputy director of the office of international health and biodefense.

Meanwhile, back in the sane world, Australia institutes a travel ban from West Africa.

Immigration Minister Scott Morrison announced “strong controls” on arrivals from West African countries affected by cases of the deadly disease.

Telling Australia’s parliament during a question time session Monday that his ministry was currently “not processing any application from these (Ebola) affected countries,” he said that the government was also suspending its humanitarian program.

He added that holders of permanent Australian visas based in these countries would be subject to a mandatory, three-week quarantine process prior to their departure. Visitors approved to travel to Australia will also face further screening and followup checks upon arrival.

Sharyl Atkisson Was More Than ‘Stonewalled’. She Was Set up.

After her investigations and revelations about Obama administration crises like ‘Fast and Furious’ gun running she learned that three classified documents were placed on her computer hard drive. They were discovered by someone who also discovered that her computer(s) had been hacked.

Atkisson relates this and more in her new book. It is scheduled to be released in early November but early copies have been available.

stonewalled

The intruders discovered my Skype account handle, stole the password, activated the audio, and made heavy use of it, presumably as a listening tool,” she wrote in “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.”

But the most shocking finding, she says, was the discovery of three classified documents that Number One told her were “buried deep in your operating system. In a place that, unless you’re a some kind of computer whiz specialist, you wouldn’t even know exists.”

“They probably planted them to be able to accuse you of having classified documents if they ever needed to do that at some point,” Number One added.”

Tennessee School Uses Nation Of Islam Handouts To “Teach” 8 Year Olds

660-Nation-of-Islam-handout-550x309

Why my kids are home-schooled:

The mother of an eight-year-old wants to know why a Tennessee school teacher gave her child a handout from the Nation of Islam that portrayed the presidents on Mount Rushmore as being racists.

Sommer Bauer tells me her son was given The Nation of Islam handout at Harold McCormick Elementary School in Elizabethton. The handout asked “What does it take to be on Mount Rushmore?”

The handout then explains that George Washington hailed from Virginia, a “prime breeder of black people.” Of Theodore Roosevelt, it was alleged he called Africans “ape-like.” There were also disparaging remarks made of Thomas Jefferson (he enslaved 200 Africans) and Abraham Lincoln.

She said her jaw dropped when she followed the link to a website that was listed on the handout. Imagine her surprise when up popped the Nation of Islam home page.

I support teaching the whole story. I support teaching that Thomas Jefferson and George Washington owned slaves. I support teaching that LBJ bragged that he’d “have them niggers voting Democrat for the next 200 years”, that FDR knowingly appointed a Klansman to the Supreme Court, that Robert Byrd was a Klansman, Jim Crow was the outgrowth of Democrat policies, the Klan was a Democrat organization. I’m all for it.

I do not support using the propaganda of a racist organization to infect children with the hate America virus. I support being honest about our past, good & bad. The leftists teaching your kids support teaching your kids to ignore the good and revile the bad, undermining their view of America and all the good she has done in the world.
