Florida woman faces felony charge for letting son go to park

Here is the story.

A mother faces a charge of child neglect after she allowed her son to go to a local park alone. She says he’s old enough but Port St. Lucie Police disagree. Now she’s fighting back.

“I’m totally dumbfounded by this whole situation,” said the mother, Nicole Gainey.

It began last Saturday afternoon when Gainey gave her son Dominic permission to walk from their house to Sportsman’s Park .

“Honestly didn’t think I was doing anything wrong,” says Gainey, “I was letting him go play.

It’s a half mile from their Port St. Lucie home. Dominic says it only takes him about 10 to 15 minutes to get there. During the walk, the 7-year-old passed a public pool. Someone there asked him where his mom was.

“They asked me a couple questions and I got scared so I ran off to the park and they called the cops,” says Dominic Guerrisi.

Dominic was playing at the park when an officer pulled up.

“They said ‘where does your mom live,’ ” says Dominic.

Police took him home. That’s when his mom was arrested and charged with child neglect. Gainey says she was shocked.

No child should ever be unsupervised. Adults who allow their children to be unsupervised should be punished.

I can only think of one exception to this rule. If you want to enter another country illegally, it is permissible to send your unsupervised child across foreign frontiers on a thousand mile journey and thus subject them to the depredations of human traffickers, all manner of sexual predation and sudden, violent death. Parents who do this should be rewarded with a fast-track to US citizenship.

Do I have the logic of government correct here?

The non-militia answer to the Obama’s illegal amnesty

The GOP should make it clear that 1) Obama will not be president forever. 2) If you are an undocumented alien and you apply for amnesty under Obama’s illegal executive order, we will have your name and other pertinent information. 3) When Obama is no longer there to protect his illegal order, the data you submitted will be closely scrutinized.

This is the message.

Obama is not a king or a dictator and, therefore, the executive order in which he has offered you amnesty is illegal. It will be overturned in the courts and it will be withdrawn when he is no longer in power. The files of anyone who applies for amnesty under this illegal executive order will be scrutinized, his or her case will be quickly reviewed and immediate deportation may result. You have been given fair warning. Do not apply for amnesty under this illegal order.

“College Professors *Shocked* How Obamacare Hurts Them”

Poor babies. It’s really hurting the Adjunct Professors who are classed as ‘Part Time’ by the Affordable Care Act and therefore not covered. That’s a big change. Boo fricking hoo.

professor know it all

After years of singing the praises of universal health care, college professors are now shocked at how badly it has turned out — for them.
Adjunct professors are steamed at the way their employers are interpreting the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate, which forces them to cover full-time but not part-time workers. Typical of liberals, they blame their employers instead of the job-killing law they supported.
Starting Jan. 1, ObamaCare makes employers offer all full-time workers health insurance or pay a fine. In response, hundreds of colleges have simply cut instructors’ course loads to dodge coverage. Others are thinking about laying off untenured faculty by the thousands….
The American Association of University Professors says it’s “dismayed” by the ObamaCare-tied cutbacks, calling them “reprehensible.” A Stark State College adjunct professor facing cuts at his Ohio institution whines that it should cover part-time workers, too. “It goes against the spirit of the law,” says the English prof….”

Greg Sergant thinks he has a bombshell. He doesn’t.

Sergant thinks he has proof that the law provides Obamacare subsidies for those buying in state exchanges. His proof is that an early version of the law explicitly said they do. This language was later dropped from the bill.

1) The first Senate version of the health law to be passed in 2009 — by the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee — explicitly stated that subsides would go to people on the federally-established exchange. A committee memo describing the bill circulated at the time spelled this out with total clarity.

Sergant says this proves the Congress intended to proved the subsidies. The reality, is that it provides evidence of the exact opposite.

If language is included and then purposefully dropped, it assumed to be intentional.

For example, imagine a draft law that said this…

“The maximum speed limit for all roads, except Route 16, shall be 55 miles per hour.”

Assume that the bill was later passed into law like this…

“The maximum speed limit for all roads, except Route 16, shall be 55 miles per hour.”

Every court in the land would assume the maximum speed limit for Route 16 was 55 miles per hour. That the first draft excluded Route 16 would be irrelevant and the court would assume that the exception for Route 16 was stricken from the law consciously and because the authors of the bill decided NOT to exclude Route 16.

If an early version of Obamacare explicitly included subsidies for those who purchased on federal exchanges but language was later dropped, it is further evidence that the Congress* knowingly and purposefully deleted the language because it was their purpose to deny subsidies to those in states that opted not to set up exchanges.

In other words, Greg Sargent gets it exactly wrong.


*By “Congress” I mean the consultants who designed and drafted the legislation. Democrats in Congress who voted for Obamacare didn’t have a clue about this level of detail. They had delegated their thinking to others.

We’re sorry your experience was unsatisfactory…

Perhaps you would be happier seeking “refuge” in Columbia or Venezuela…

Tuesday at the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ Ad-Hoc Hearing on the humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied minors flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border, a 15-year-old boy who made the journey alone from El Salvador accused U.S. Border Patrol of having “mistreated” him at one of the border holding centers overwhelmed by the tens of thousands of children.

The young illegal immigrant complained about being given only “a cold ham sandwich twice a day” because it was not “enough food.” He also complained of being given only a nylon blanket for warmth, the lights being left on and no privacy in the bathrooms.

“I felt very mistreated,” he said. “My time in the ice boxes was the worst time of my life.”

“Please don’t mistreat children the way your government has mistreated me,” he added.

The problem here isn’t this soon-to-be loyal Democrat voter. The problem is the activists who coached him and drilled him in order to get him to deliver this testimony.

Jury Awards POS Jesse Ventura $1.8Million in Defamation Case

Taya Kyle

Dirtbag sued the estate of Navy Seal Chris Kyle who was killed by a former service member he was helping deal with PTSD. Now the court has determined that Kyle’s wife, Taya Kyle, must pay the greasy SOB $1.8 Million.

A jury awarded former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura $1.8 million on Tuesday in his lawsuit against the estate of “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle.

On the sixth day of deliberations, the federal jury decided that the author of the 2012 best-selling book defamed Ventura in its description of a bar fight in California in 2006. Kyle, regarded as the deadliest military sniper in U.S. history, wrote that he decked a man whom he later identified as Ventura after the man allegedly said the Navy SEALs “deserve to lose a few.”

Ventura testified that Kyle fabricated the passage about punching him. Kyle said in testimony videotaped before his death last year that his story was accurate.”

This is sad. First the woman loses her husband to a killer. Now this.

“U.S. Says Russia Tested Cruise Missile, Violating Treaty”

Result? Obama sends Putin a letter.

WASHINGTON — The United States has concluded that Russia violated a landmark arms control treaty by testing a prohibited ground-launched cruise missile, according to senior American officials, a finding that was conveyed by President Obama to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia in a letter on Monday.

It is the most serious allegation of an arms control treaty violation that the Obama administration has leveled against Russia and adds another dispute to a relationship already burdened by tensions over the Kremlin’s support for separatists in Ukraine and its decision to grant asylum to Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor.”

The Obama Economic Plan Is Working

As even the New York Times can see, the income levels of Americans has fallen dramatically. President Obama has caused it to happen.

27datapoints-superJumbo

The Typical Household, Now Worth a Third Less

Economic inequality in the United States has been receiving a lot of attention. But it’s not merely an issue of the rich getting richer. The typical American household has been getting poorer, too.

The inflation-adjusted net worth for the typical household was $87,992 in 2003. Ten years later, it was only $56,335, or a 36 percent decline, according to a study financed by the Russell Sage Foundation. Those are the figures for a household at the median point in the wealth distribution — the level at which there are an equal number of households whose worth is higher and lower. But during the same period, the net worth of wealthy households increased substantially.”

As the Times notes near the end of the article,

The reasons for these declines are complex and controversial, but one point seems clear: When only a few people are winning and more than half the population is losing, surely something is amiss.”

That means something is wrong but they don’t want to get into it.

Cop needlessly shoots dog…

Cop gets fired.

A south suburban police officer has been fired after the shooting death of a family dog that has outraged a small community. Witnesses say an officer from the Hometown Police Department shot and killed the dog in front of its owners.

On Monday, Eyewitness News spoke with the family who lost their pet.

Alexis Gamino loves animals, but is especially fond of her dog, Apollo, a 14-month old German shepherd-pit bull mix.

“He made me laugh a lot,” said Alexis, 6.

On Friday, Apollo was shot and killed by a Hometown police officer in the front yard of the dog owner’s home, and she says her daughter Alexis saw it all.

“My quick reaction was to grab her and run inside because she fell to the floor and started screaming,” said Nicole Echlina, Apollo’s owner.

It’s about time.

Mail carriers are evidently far braver than many police officers. Mail carriers face barking, snarling dogs every day without a shot fired. Maybe a little pepper spray now and then, but that is about the size of it. Among a certain breed of police officer, however, the slightest provocation from a dog results in the cop killing it.

In all seriousness, I don’t believe cops are less brave than mail carriers. What I believe is that there is a certain type of person who becomes a cop because he covets authority and power. When this type of person sees an opportunity to use deadly force legitimately, he will use it without hesitation or concern. That mentality is dangerous.

A cop who shoots a dog because he can, not because he is legitimately threatened, should be relieved of his sidearm. If I shot the neighbor’s dog – even in my own yard – because it bared its teeth, I wouldn’t just be relieved of my side arm, I would be sent to jail.

Hamas Wants To Kill This Woman… And She Knows It

She is a 29 year-old Isreali. She lives in a kibbutz in the south of Israel not far from Gaza. In this video she tells what it is like living there. She says the Israeli Defense Force has discovered a tunnel opening right next to their kibbutz and found Gaza fighters coming out of it.

She tells the history of the bombing of southern Israel and she tells about the last two weeks and how it has gotten worse. She claims to be non-political. She says she only wants the rest of the world to know the truth.

If you watch this ten minute video you will know what she and other Israelis are living with.

Obama Now Inventing Reasons To Pull Support From Israel

He is pissed that the Israeli media is dissing John Kerry’s stupid peace proposal. That’s the proposal, you may remember, that gave Hamas everything they wanted and Israel nothing they wanted… the one Israel rejected.

The petulant child is upset that the media there has portrayed the proposal that way even though it’s true.

Obama Administration Enraged About Israeli Criticism Of Kerry

According to President Obama’s deputy national security adviser Tony Blinken, that type of criticism crosses a line.”

Oooh. Another red line.

Israel has no better friend, no stronger defender than John Kerry,” He said the criticism of Kerry was based on “people leaking things that are either misinformed, or attempting to misinform.”

Other officials used even harsher language, saying the attacks on Kerry crossed a line and put the relationship between the U.S. and Israel in jeopardy. Those officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter on the record by name.

In trying to implement the cease-fire over the weekend, “U.S. Secretary of State of State John Kerry ruined everything,” wrote columnist Ari Shavit in Monday’s Haaretz, Israel’s leading liberal newspaper. “Very senior officials in Jerusalem described the proposal that Kerry put on the table as a ‘strategic terrorist attack’.”

According to the article linked the Palestinian Authority actually agrees with Israel’s assessment of the proposal.

The United States Lowers Israel’s Diplomatic Shield at the United Nations

Despite a history of rocky relations between U.S. President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Obama administration could largely be counted on to watch Israel’s back in the U.N. Security Council, where it succeeded for more than five years in blocking successive efforts by the Palestinians to gain more of the trappings of an independent state and to get the world body to formally censure Israeli settlement policies.

That changed after the stroke of midnight Sunday when, in the early minutes of Monday, July 28, the U.N. Security Council, with the backing of the United States, issued a formal “presidential statement” demanding that Israel and Hamas implement an “immediate and unconditional” cease-fire to end fighting that has left more than 1,000 Palestinians and 43 Israelis dead. The Palestinians say they will continue to seek Security Council support for a legally enforceable resolution demanding that Israel halt its military offensive in Gaza.”

Shaneen Allen makes an innocent, harmless mistake

pic_giant_072414_SM_Shaneen-Allen

She crossed a state line.

Shaneen Allen, a young mother of two, was arrested in Philadelphia last October over an honest mistake.

She’s African-American, and instead of getting any kind of leniency — or decency — she was charged with a felony and could face up to four years in jail.

Where is the Left rushing in to cry racism and note black crime statistics and ask whether Allen would have gotten the same treatment if she were white?

Nowhere, and that might be because Allen was arrested over a concealed-carry permit.

Allen had been robbed twice in 2013, so she bought a handgun legally in Pennsylvania and obtained a concealed-carry permit. She didn’t realize the permit wasn’t valid in every state and was driving in New Jersey when she was pulled over for a minor traffic offense. She informed the officer she had a weapon and provided her permit, thinking she was within the law.

But she wasn’t. New Jersey’s stringent gun laws don’t recognize Pennsylvania’s concealed-carry permits.

She is facing four years in prison. The prosecutor had the discretion to drop the case, charge her with a misdemeanor or just put her in a NJ first time offender education program. Nope. He is going to attempt to ruin her life with a felony rap and a prison term.

So, the question arises… Where is the left? Were is Al Sharpton? Why is no one on the left running to assist this African America victim of over prosecution?

She is a victim of politics and the left’s hatred of the Second Amendment. Their anti-gun agenda evidently even trumps their desire to defend oppressed minorities.

Libya in total collapse and complete chaos

This is what Choom Gang foreign policy looks like.

Libya appealed for international help Monday after an oil depot was set on fire during severe fighting between rival militias at Tripoli’s international airport in the worst level of violence since the 2011 revolution that ousted Moammar Gadhafi.

The interim government said that fighting between rival militias caused the blaze at the depot, which contains 1.6 million gallons of petroleum and could trigger a “humanitarian and environmental disaster,” the government said in a statement.

Libya’s state-run National Oil Corp. said on its Facebook page that the government had contacted “several (foreign) states asking if they were willing to send planes and teams specializing in fire extinguishing.”

The US and Germany have evacuated all personnel from the country.

I know it get old, but can you imagine the MSM feeding frenzy that would be going on right now if it had been Dubya rather than “The World’s Smartest Diplomat” who overthrew the government had tossed Libya into anarchy, violence and chaos?

Reparations for the Choom Gang?

Obama-pot

Slate says we should pay reparations to the victims of the war on weed.

Nevertheless, blacks are 3.73 times more likely than whites to be arrested for marijuana possession, with an arrest rate of 716 per 100,000 for blacks to 192 per 100,000 for whites (compared to a national average of 256 per 100,000). What’s startling is that the total marijuana arrest rate has increased by nearly one-third since 2001, while at the same time, the rate for whites has remained constant, a sign that blacks account for the bulk of new arrests. And this dynamic is persistent across the country, from Washington D.C.—where the arrest rate for blacks is 8.05 times greater than for whites—to Alaska, where it’s “just” 1.6 times greater. Nationally, nearly one-half of our 1.7 million drug arrests are for marijuana possession.

We can’t always heal injury, but we can acknowledge and compensate for it. Any plan for legalization should come with a plan for reparations for those communities most damaged by our misguided war on marijuana. That doesn’t mean individual payments—the logistics are too difficult—as much as it does policies for affected communities, from job training and educational services to something like My Brother’s Keeper, all funded by a surtax on marijuana sales and distribution.

We can’t wash our hands of our past mistakes. The war on drugs—and the war on weed in particular—has been a disaster and a burden for millions of Americans and their communities. We can’t fix all of the damage, but as we wind down the conflict and liberalize our laws, we should do our best to make amends.

Satanists want to use Hobby Lobby decision to exempt women from abortion laws

These clowns are always good for a laugh.

In a statement, the Satanic Temple said that it will use the Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby decision to exempt its believers from state-mandated informed consent laws that require women considering abortions to read pro-life material.

Informed consent or “right to know” laws state that women seeking elective abortions be provided with information about alternatives to the procedure, often couched in language that attempts to personify the fetus. According to the Guttmacher Institute, 35 states currently have informed consent laws, and of those, 33 require that the woman be told the gestational age of the fetus.

In some states, that information consists of pro-life propaganda that links abortion to a higher incidence of breast and ovarian cancers, or discusses “post-abortion syndrome,” a mental condition not recognized by any major medical or psychiatric organization.

Of course there are about a half a dozen reasons stated in the case why this will never fly not the least of which was that the court explicitly stated that the logic of the case applied to the specifics of the situation at hand. The case cannot be extended to pretend religions, non-sincere religious excuses or other areas of the law.

Texas Militias Hit The Border

shit

I am gonna catch so much shit for this…

Groups describing themselves as militias have set up a training area near San Antonio and say there already are four “operations on the ground” along the US-Mexico border in Texas.

The groups, which supported Cliven Bundy at a standoff at his Nevada ranch earlier this year, posted an update on a website used to organize the efforts Tuesday night that said there are currently three “troops on the ground” on the Arizona border, and “four credible operations on the ground” on the Texas border.

The Texas militia, known as “Operation Secure Our Border,” is being led by Chris Davis, a 37-year-old truck driver who was discharged from the Army in 2001 [...]

He does not appear to have any arrests, according to public record sources. Last year, Davis was one of three men in the group Open Carry Texas cited by the San Antonio Police Department for disorderly conduct while openly carrying rifles outside a Starbucks. The incident sparked an open carry rally at the Alamo that drew hundreds of armed protesters[...]

“We have patriots all across this country who are willing to sacrifice their time, money even quit their jobs to come down and fight for freedom, liberty and national sovereignty,” Davis said in the interview.

Davis deleted his Facebook and YouTube accounts, including a 21-minute video in which he describes plans for “securing the border:” “How?” he asked on the video. “You see an illegal. You point your gun dead at him, right between his eyes, and you say, ‘Get back across the border or you will be shot.’ [...]

The militas have said they will carry firearms along the border and carry out “missions” to stop the increasing number of migrants fleeing violence in Central America from entering the country illegally.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection opposed the militias through a statement, saying they “could have disastrous personal and public safety consequences.”[...]

Davis’ bio in his Twitter account, last active June 8, reads: “I believe in the King James Bible, The Constitution, and Bill of Rights! I am a Future Veteran of the Refounding. Molon Labe! III%! Spirit of 1776!”

Okay, where to begin? I removed references to the militia commanders discharge from the Army because it was obvious that they are disparaging the man in an attempt to smear him, instead of addressing the issue. My fairness noted, I have to say that these fools will (likely) end up getting someone killed and creating all sorts of problems in addition to the real problem we have, which is an out-of-control federal government refusing to do it’s job.

The militia isn’t comprised of middle-aged men, playing weekend warrior, and acting on behalf of the state at their own discretion. These are vigilantes – and we are a nation of laws. The militia is all able-bodied males called upon in time of crisis, by their state, to serve in the interest of that state. If Washington’s militias existed today, all these Rambo wanna-be’s would be crying crocodile tears at what was/is expected of them.

I think it’s great that we still have Americans who are willing to fight, even when our government refuses to. The way they are choosing to go about it is ill-advised and dangerous. It only serves to escalate tensions and force an issue that will cost lives. I would support them fully, if the Governor of Texas called them to arms and was directing their activities, but I cannot support groups of armed men taking it upon themselves to do enforce the law. That’s the type of justification used by the Klan.

These same individuals are hurting the rights of decent gun-owners with their open-carry horseshit. Literally. Same people. It almost seems like they’re trying to hurt conservative causes.

Serial Liar Susan Rice Calls For Immediate Cease-Fire In Gaza

According to Politico President Obama sent his lying lackey Susan Rice out to demand that Israel go for the stupid peace that John Kerry tried to foist on them.

Rice, you may remember, was the UN Ambassador at the time she was sent out to tell the world that the attack on the US compound in Benghazi, Libya was the result of an amateur video about Mohammed that was made in the United States.

From Politico:

It’s the U.S. view, as well, that the death toll and the civilian toll in Gaza is rising in an alarming pace,” Rice continued. “It’s a concern that is grave and deepening on the part of the United States, the American people and the entire international community.”

Rice proceeded to call for “an immediate, unconditional humanitarian cease-fire,” echoing what President Barack Obama and his top officials have said in recent days.”

Who would believe anything that comes from this woman? Who would pay any attention to her? Certainly not Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He is a practical man with a job to do. He has been burned by these idiots before.

Hillary: Bush Made Me Proud To Be An American

Ouch.

Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the United States standing in the world and said former President George W. Bush is the president who made her “proud to be an American.”
Clinton then seemingly took a shot at Obama’s current lack of direction in world leadership.

“We have to go back out and sell ourselves,” Clinton said. “It is not to be taken for granted. What do we stand for and, how do we intend to lead and manage? How do we try to enlist the rest of the world in this struggle between cooperation and order and conflict and disorder which is really at the root of so much that’s going on today, and i don’t think we’ve done a very good job of that.”

DC Issues Full-Reciprocity With All 50 States

First reported here. We have a new development in the war on the 2nd Amendment. DC Police have issued full-reciprocity with all 50 states, as reported by Fox5NewsDC reporter Emily Miller

As we reported on Friday, a US court has ruled that Washington, D.C.’s ban on carry outside of the home was found to be unconstitutional.
We are now seeing reports from D.C. reporter and gun rights activist Emily Miller that the Washington DC police will be treating the District of Columbia essentially as a Constitutional Carry state until further notice.

DC police chief using guidance from AG — grants full reciprocity for all open and concealed carry from others states.
Only gun arrests now in DC can be DC residents with unregistered guns and non-residents who are prohibited under federal laws.
Of course, this is only temporary. DC will likely put a licensing process in place and you can bet it’s probably going to be an incredibly strict one given the District’s stance on gun purchase and registration.

Also note, magazine capacity limits would still be in effect as well as any restrictions on types of weapons. Basically anything carried would need to be DC legal. We’ll consult the laws and update this further.
Gun rights attorney (from the Heller case as well as the case in question here), posted the actual police memo on his website. If you have questions about the memo you should probably direct them to either DC Police or your attorney.

White House Says Israelis Dissed Kerry

Israel’s leaders are not concerned with Secretary of State Kerry’s bruised feelings. They are trying – again – to save their country and its people from annihilation. Kerry, at the direction of the White House, put together a proposal for a peace agreement that gave Hamas everything they wanted and Israel nothing. Israeli leaders rightly rejected the childish proposal unanimously and Israeli media called Kerry and the proposal stupid. They were right.

From the Associated Press:

US FUMING OVER ISRAELI CRITICISM OF KERRY

WASHINGTON (AP) — Obama administration officials were fuming Monday over a torrent of Israeli criticism of Secretary of State John Kerry’s latest bid to secure a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas.

In unusually harsh language, officials said the criticism of Kerry could put the relationship between the U.S. and Israel in jeopardy. They also said the personal attacks on Kerry crossed a line and were particularly disappointing at a time of active conflict.

Israeli media commentators have leveled almost nonstop criticism at Kerry in recent days over his attempts to bring Qatar and Turkey — two countries viewed by Israel as strong Hamas supporters — into the cease-fire negotiations. Kerry was also being accused of abandoning some of Israel’s key demands during the negotiations.”

Update: The Prez tells the world where his sentiments lie. Here is a celebration from White House.gov website:

Statement by the President on the Occasion of Eid-al-Fitr

As Muslims throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families. This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.

In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy. That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities.

On behalf of the Administration, we wish Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration. Eid Mubarak.”

While domestic crises simmer and international conflicts flare, President Obama can be counted on to pitch and putt.

The duffer in chief has played 81 rounds of golf and had attended 75 political fund-raisers in the 628 days since his 2012 re-election, a Post analysis of his schedule found.

The president is on pace to double the 104 days he spent on the links during his first term.
