About That ‘Live On TV’ Shooting

Copied in full from Brock Townsend

‘You want a race war [expletive]? BRING IT YOU WHITE [expletive]!’

The man suspected of shooting a television reporter and cameraman during a live broadcast in Virginia early Wednesday left a 23-page letter in which he cited the Charleston church shooting and alleged anti-gay harassment as motives.The note from V***** L** F*******, who killed himself when police cornered him five hours later, was faxed to ABC News, which reported some of its contents.ABC provided a copy to investigators as soon as the fax arrived at 8:26 a.m., some two hours after the shooting that killed WDBJ reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27.

First and foremost, my thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families and friends.
It’s interesting that the bodies aren’t even cold, yet, and there’s renewed calls for additional gun control – as if any legislation short of a complete ban and confiscation would have stopped this moron…
And we know how well THAT works!
(PS – this clown passed the NICS check!)
What should be done then?  Well, I know a veteran television cameraman, who often goes to live news sights ‘on scene’ ‘as they happen’. And I know for a fact he carries, and is a skilled shooter.
BUT, one can’t be in Condition Yellow when one is peering through a camera.
So who knows?

DOOM And DOOM-ER!

doomThe Internet is replete with tales of doom and gloom.

Two of the more current (having appeared almost simultaneously) are (first)…

BERNIE SANDERS BECOMES THE NEXT PRESIDENT

Why?  Because the expected Democratic front runner, Hillary Clinton is mired in all her illegal, dishonest and unethical mess – to the point where even the main-stream media couldn’t ignore it.  So Bernie, who seems to be running strong, and is an avowed Socialist – became the candidate.

And Donald Trump, the RINO populist, who says what ‘the people’ want to hear (at least some people) and cannot be bought (as he is running on his own cash) scares the bejezus out of the Republican establishment.  As they are not about to make him their candidate (because they cannot control him) he forms a third party.  This splits the Republican base, and Bernie The Socialist wins!

Result?  More editing and erosion of the Constitution, and increase in governmental power.  And out-of-control spending!

Quelle surprise.

(second)

WORLD FINANCIAL COLLAPSE

The People’s Republic of China (aka the PRC or ‘Red’ China), the communist behemoth to the East, is tanking financially.  And our own system (Wall Street and The Fed) are failing as well.  (the DJA dropped 1100 points in one day), AND, China holds our note (they are propping US up!)  Translation – both East and West are preparing for a large financial hit.  And failing in the preparation.  International terrorism is rampant.  And let’s not mention Europe and the tinder box in the Middle East (nuclear Iran – “I told you not to mention that!”))…

Quelle surprise TWO.

Expectations are (again, per the Internet-feeding your fears since 1994) that with a second, incompetent Socialist President, and a rapidly failing financial system, WORLDWIDE, the international banking system and what’s left of world stability will fail.

No access to your bank accounts, IRAs, profit-sharing funds, stocks, pensions, gold, jewels.  You will be asked to bring in any valuables to the nearest federal collection station for ‘processing of your contribution’.  Social Security, Medicare and disability payments will STOP.

And anarchy will ensue.

Need an Alka-Seltzer, yet?

Or a whiskey?

Me?  I don’t buy into it.  At least not yet.

I think the demise of the Republic will occur much more slowly and painfully, as it has been since, oh, 1930…

False Flags

EPA, FBI, DOJ, FDA, CDC, ATF: Nearly every government agency routinely plots and carries out false flag operations to justify its own existence

Via comment by Anonymous on Don’t Be Fooled by the Political Game: The Illusio…

Yesterday I posted an article asking for American citizens to send me water samples from the Animas River that the EPA has now heavily contaminated with toxic heavy metals. I want to test the water in my elemental analysis laboratory to expose the EPA’s pollution.The EPA used to prevent corporations from polluting the rivers, but now the EPA has become the polluter, the liar and the cover-up cartel. In that story, I pointed out the total absurdity of our sickening, corrupt government, where private citizens now have to conduct the science to expose the pollution of the EPA.That got me thinking… hey, wait a minute. Almost EVERY federal government agency is now functioning as a rogue entity. Nearly all of them routinely carry out false flag events in order to justify their own existence (and increase their budgets). In a very real way, U.S. government agencies have become mafia-style cartels carrying out domestic terrorism across America in order to justify their own existence.

Straws.  Camels backs.  Boiled frogs.  I truly don’t want to believe the above, because I’ve seen evidence of this piece-by-piece for years, and wrote it off to bureaucracies self-perpetuating.
I was (am) in denial.
THIS is why we have ever increasing budgets routinely asked-for and given for most government agencies – some of which have military hardware and budgets rivaling third-word countries!  (Including civilian police!)
And, of course, we have the intelligence agencies.  Secret budgets, money laundering, the E & I Bank, universal unwarranted surveillance and collusion with ‘continuing criminal enterprises’…
Come to think of it, some State and local law enforcement entities are guilty of collusion, as well.  Why else would the Mob (and it’s various permutations) be allowed to operate, largely unrestricted?  Criminal gangs?  Child porn and white slavery rings?
Sure, every now and there is some ‘big’ bust – a large smuggling tunnel with tons of weed, a drug house, some gang member holding an ‘arsenal’ (10 or 12 guns) is busted, to show the public they are holding up the public trust.
But the ring leaders and their politically-connected lackeys are rarely if ever prosecuted, or even mentioned.
Why is that?
And now (from above) …

Words Have Meaning

“It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. …”  –  William Jefferson Clinton

The Quote of The Day (courtesy of Joe Huffman)

The term “assault weapon” is the fake term. “Assault rifle”, or Sturmgewehr, is the correct term for a light rifle or carbine firing an intermediate power cartridge (more powerful than a typical pistol but less powerful than a typical high powered rifle), having full automatic fire capability and feeding from a detachable magazine. The largely cosmetic feature of the pistol grip stock is a other, possibly defining trait, being the THE original Sturmgewehr (fielded by the National Socialist Workers’ Party) had a pistol grip stock.

The serious use of the term “assault weapon” pretty well defines a person as having little or no credibility in regard to firearms. Today’s socialists are pissed off at seeing anything that even resembles an assault rifle, I do herein posit, mainly because it’s THEIR weapon design and they don’t like seeing advocates of liberty carrying THEIR weapon.

Or at least food for amusement.

What’s For Me Is Not For Thee!

Sipsey Street Irregulars brought this clown to my attention…

Matt Sweetwood won a landmark victory for gun ownership rights from the New Jersey Supreme Court. So he’s against gun restrictions, right? Wrong. Here is his six point plan to help reduce gun violence.

There needs to be a Federal database of all guns and gun owners.

7-day waiting period before a gun is purchased and background checks on every purchase.

Elimination of unregulated gun selling / trading events. Every gun sold needs to be in the Federal registry.

There should be a set standard for gun ownership. Currently, it is left in the discretion of local authorities who sometimes error incorrectly either way. If you have committed an aggravated felony you can’t have a gun. If you have mental health issues you get a hearing to determine your status. If you don’t fall into those categories, you can’t be denied a gun.

Let’s do as the Israelis do. Currently, here in the USA, most sports arenas have searches on the way in. That needs to be effectuated on any public place where there are crowds. In Israel, you can’t enter a movie theater, bar, mall, etc., without bags being searched and wanded by a metal / bomb detector.

Most gun crimes are committed by repeat offenders. There needs to be mandatory minimum jail sentences for any crime committed with a gun. Sell drugs while carrying a gun and get 10 years in prison – do it again, get 20 years. We need to let the bad guys know, gun crime gets you real time.”Bill of Rights?  We don’ need no Bill of Rights!”

Doesn’t it make you are gooey inside that someone for whom we stood up has such an individual-civil-rights-oriented view?

Yeah, makes me sick, too.

(Of course, he does live in NEW JERSEY!)

More Fast And Really Furious

Just in case you missed coverage of this on the news…

(As posted by David Hardy in his blog, with attached commentary, in full…)

Plea in murder of BP Agent Terry, with Fast & Furious gun

POSTED BY DAVID HARDY · 11 AUGUST 2015 07:05 PM

Another perp involved has taken a plea to 30 years’ imprisonment. Another perp also got 30 years, and the guy who bought the guns got under five years.

These are all quite lenient. The gunmen faced the death penalty, and the gun buyer could probably have, too (aiding and abetting the murder makes him guilty of murder). If prosecuted under Arizona law (and they still could be, since the offense broke both State and Federal law), they’d be very likely to get death, and at the very least to get life without parole (“natural life”). I’ve seen killers get the latter for a single murder and one not committed in the course of a plan for violent criminal acts.

Why should those who authorised the sale get away with it?

The FFL lodged a NICS check,and probably committed no crime since the check came back “proceed”, but the LEO that cleared the sale was apparently fully aware of the intent of the purchaser.

Surely that approval in the face of evidence of likely criminality is illegal, especially given that there was no attempt to “follow the guns” as was later claimed as justification.

As pointed out on other blogs, taking a plea deal means there won’t be any embarrassing discovery phase that would occur if a trial was held. Another win in the “Move Along, Nothing to See” column for this “most transparent ever ” administration.

I have highlighted salient points in red. (Guffaw)

If indeed there is a thin blue line between us and murdering smugglers, and one (or more) of them falls, the perpetrator should obtain the maximum.

This is a travesty, not only for the family of Brian Terry, but for all others killed or maimed by ‘government-sponsored’ smuggling.  In both countries.

And, of course, the reasoning stated above says it all.

The Boy Who Cried Wolf

We all remember that Aesop Fable.

Fast-forward to today, wherein people are lampooned for worrying about the Jade Helm military exercise.

I wonder why they came to the conclusion there was something malicious about it?

Could it be governmental actions have been less-than-benign now for over 40 years?

  • unwarranted airport searches
  • unwarranted sobriety checkpoints
  • unwarranted vehicle searches for contraband at the borders
  • unwarranted personal questioning with regard to citizenship or legal residence
  • local police abuse of constitutional rights
  • federal agency abuse of constitutional rights
  • intelligence agencies spying on American citizens’ cellular telephones, Internet communications, snail mail, conversations and all manner of communication
  • intelligence secret ‘courts’ forcing citizens into black ‘prisons’ for interrogation without benefit of counsel or constitutional protections
  • military-sanctioned assassinations via drone strikes of U.S. Citizens overseas
  • The U.S. Attorney General not ruling out similar actions on U.S. soil

Ad infinitum, ad nauseum

I believe in the Constitutional Republic of The United States of America.  Whatever we have been perverted into is not the same nation, however.

It is no wonder that people reflexively want to believe the worst about their government.  FEMA concentration camps, contrail poisoning, and Jade Helm are just the tip of the conspiracy theory iceberg.

We need to support a presidential candidate in this next election who proposes dialing back the abuses of the past 40 years.

Of course, if we truly believe in conspiracies, they will be discredited or assassinated before that happens.

True Detective

(No, not the pulp magazine Robert D******* purloined from the convenience store when we had a sleep-over in my Dad’s camper, when we were in junior high!  :-P)

We just finished watching Season Two of True Detective on HBO.  Each season had it’s own story, characters, actors and themes.  Season One was in Louisiana.  This one was central and northern California.  Both were in part produced by the lead actors from season one – Woody Harrelson and  Matthew McConaughey.  Rest assured, this is no longer the Woody from the TV comedy Cheers.  They are both consummate actors.

The theme carried over to Season Two is there is something larger, deeper, more sinister going on than first appears to the on scene investigators.  It takes the season to unravel the mysteries.  Both seasons consist of eight episodes each.

Season One took place over a number of years, following the rise and fall of career detectives in pursuit of a serial killer.  Season Two was revealed in a much shorter time frame, involving murder, political power and blackmail.  Both seasons were populated with extremely flawed, alcoholic, addicted and trapped detectives and career criminals, in extreme emotional pain.

Not exactly an evening of light television.

For the record, I liked both presentations.  The critics were especially hard on Season Two, as over-complicated and not living up to Season One’s standards.  It is still undecided if there will be a Season Three developed.

I’m certain both seasons are available on You Tube, Netflix, and the like.

The opening to Season Two, below…

Faster and Furiouser

Assailant in Garland, Texas, attack bought gun in 2010 under Fast and Furious operation

I wonder how many other attacks on U.S. soil are traceable to these transactions?

(Probably not too many, as difficult as it is to bring illegal stuff across the border…)

The World Turned Upside Down, Part Dos…

A report at The Navy Times in July confirmed that one of the Marines shot during the Chattanooga terrorist attack exchanged fire with the terrorist. Navy Lt. Cmdr Timothy White also shot back at the terrorist.

But rather than being celebrated as a hero, Lt. Commander White may be charged for discharging a firearm on federal property.

Allen West reported this week that Lt. Commander Timothy White

This is obscene!  Nothing more needs to be said.
(courtesy of Brock Townsend)
THIS JUST IN – The Navy reports they are NOT going to charge Lt. Commander White!  I wonder if this is a reversal of opinion, or the story was previously misreported?

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
