MORE Transparency

This time at a STATE level!  By FEDERAL officials!

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted found 44 cases of illegal aliens voting in Ohio and could find more but federal officials refuse to hand over crucial data.

Husted’s investigation used Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicle data to cross check voter rolls.  However, for a match, the BMV record must be self-identified as a non-citizen.

It just gets better and better, doesn’t it?

Yep, Right Up There With Jerry Springer

Or the Weekly World News!

I’m certainly no fan of the Southern Poverty Law Center.  Under the guise of ‘helping the poor and disenfranchised’, they have continued to malign legitimate gun owners and owner’s rights (see The Bill of Rights) and to push a big government totalitarian nanny state, while conflating legitimate gun-totin’ folk with radical, bomb-throwing ‘ so-called militia’ types.

So, when I saw this expose’ of Morris Dees, the founder of the SPLC, I couldn’t resist:

Morris-Dees

Most young conservative activists see Mark Potok and Heidi Beirich as the face of the SPLC. That is because Morris Dees, the founder, has a sordid past that is dangerous for the organization to have him on any live show. Dees makes rare appearances at campuses. Even, then the Q&A session often get cancelled if their is any opposition in the crowd.

Dees has been denounced as a con artist by people all across the political spectrum. He has been denounced by major newspapers. He has been denounced by people of all races. He has been denounced on the pages of major left-wing websites like Daily Kos and Huffington Post.

Harper’s Weekly, a publication cherished by liberal reporters, even published an expose denouncing Morris Dees.

Most young activists don’t even know about Dees, because their attention is directly at the people Dees’ uses as a buffer.

Young activists should acquaint themselves with the infamous Morris Dees Divorce papers.

Read this expose from Weekly Standard.

Divorce papers?  Seriously?
Yep, I’m right up there with Springer.

Familiarity Breeds Qualification, Right?

From my friend Old NFO (in part)

In a news conference, Deanna Favre announced she will be the starting Quarterback for the Green Bay Packers football team next season.

Deanna asserts that she is qualified to be the starting QB because she had spent 16 years married to Brett while he played QB for the Packers – even though she has actually never played football at any level from grade school up, never ran the offense of any team, nor ever played the game.

During this period of time, she became familiar with the definition of a corner blitz, the nickel package, man-to-man coverage, so she is now completely comfortable with all the other terminology involving the Packers offense. A survey of Packers fans shows 50% of those polled supported the move.

Does this sound idiotic and unbelievable … or familiar to you?

Hillary Clinton makes the same claims as to why she is qualified to be the President of the United States and 50% of Democrats polled agree.

She has never run a city, county, or state during her “career” as being Bill Clinton’s wife. When told Hillary Clinton has experience because she has 8 years in the White House. My immediate thought was, “So does the pastry chef, and the person who picks up dog shit from the White House Lawn” (…)

Of course, you should go and read Old NFO’s whole essay!

I had a supervisor at TMCCC for a number of years, who claimed to be able to analyze our personal problems and offer solutions.

Her qualifications?

She had been married to a clinical psychologist for 20 years (before their acrimonious divorce)!

She had a college degree, but not in psychology or counseling.

I wonder what proximity has to do with actual qualification?  Perhaps if you are an amoeba?

So, a woman who was fired from her job as a Watergate committee lawyer for legal and ethical violations magically becomes a U.S. Senator (from New York (being an Arkansan, and all!) then U. S. Secretary of State.  After some years as a schlock lawyer.  Her only qualification is she was married to a serial rapist, who happened to squirm his way into The Presidency.

And, of course, she is a woman, making her as qualified as the current President, who was voted in because he was Black!  (He, too, also has a questionable and inexperienced background).

Qualification by Proximity!  It’s all the rage.

Quid Pro Quo RE: Gun Rights/Migrants

Says an Oregon Democrat!   (in part)

Calling it the “civil rights battle” for millennials that will decide who controls the the country for the next three decades, Democrat Rep. Kurt Schrader of Oregon says immigration “will decide who is in charge of this country for the next 20 or 30 years,” the Portland Tribune reported Monday. Schraeder’s observation highlights a contention made by Gun Owners of America that amnesty is a threat to the right to keep and bear arms. That position has so far been avoided by other national gun rights groups which refuse to acknowledge the issue, or to score political ratings and endorsements accordingly.

That avoidance is in spite of the fact that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has stated illegal aliens have “earned the right to be citizens. It’s in spite of all credible polling showing the foreigners to be overwhelmingly Democrat and anti-gun in their sympathies.   (…)

Duh.

Potential new citizens being given the many gifts of citizenship, after having already being given gifts as illegal aliens migrants , it only stands to reason they would vote for the party that gave them all the free stuff.  And align themselves with the Democratic progressive agenda who provided it.

Not knowing part of doing so would further The Republic’s The Nation’s The Oligarchy’s ability to deny their rights!

Quid Pro Quo

(and what sort of name is Jeh, anyway?  Inquiring minds want to know.)

I’m NOT A Supporter Of Apartheid, But…

The accompanying cutting, from today’s Mercury, serves to confirm that South Africa is indisputably on a Zimbabwe-style road to rack-and-ruin: Black ANC government ministers, including King Kong himself, regularly attend overseas’ business conferences to attract Overseas’ Investors. Any potential Investors must, however, be warned about the accompanying article and be warned about the treachery of our black leadership scum. Furthermore, I must remind potential investors about the perils of the ANC government’s racist Affirmative Action/Employment Equity, and BEE, regulations:  inexperienced, poorly-educated, parasitical blacks must be given employment preference, irrespective of more competent, better-qualified Whites.

Stipulated minimum wages, furthermore, are proving to be very inflationary in the light of poor productivity. Similarly, Black Economic Empowerment is a situation in which politically-connected blacks get handed huge sums of cash, to start their own businesses, but these morons seem to think that “turnover is profit,” and spend everything on big homes, luxury vehicles and expensive clothes, etc. The BEE success rate is estimated to be less-than 10% but government continues with this drain on our fiscus!

A long story but l would certainly think twice before investing in this Gucci-Socialistic, crime-ridden country!

Focus on land reform

THE ANC is placing emphasis on the need to speed up land redistribution amid increasing pressure from opposition such as the EFF and Numsa. ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe said yesterday that the ruling party was calling for a cap on land…

Land redistribution?  Sounds suspiciously like neighboring (communist dictatorship) Zimbabwe.  And the preferential treatment for Blacks, regardless of ability, education.  Sounds like racial quotas.  In other words, racist.

I thought the ANC was bringing Heaven-On-Earth to the beleaguered ‘Republic’?  Once the nasty White overlords were run out of office.

Substitute one evil for another.  Yeah, that’ll work!

You know, I always admired Col. Cooper for his work with firearms.  His world view, in spite of his Master’s Degree in history, not as much.  But, he called it on the future of South Africa, 20 years ago!

Duty?

NY Post:

Throughout the city, precincts are being ordered to hand up to borough commanders “activity sheets” indicating the number of arrests and summonses per shift, sources told The Post.

Police officers around the city are now threatened with transfers, no vacation time and sick time unless they write summonses,” one union source said.

“This is the same practice that caused officers to be labeled racist and abusers of power.”

More @ Resister In The Rockies

So, that tired meme about cops not having a quota of summonses (“I can write as many as I want!”) has been laid to rest in NYC.  Quantity, not Quality seems to be the order of the day.

There was a time, when law enforcement was about enforcing the law, NOT generating revenue or creating numbers to justify budgets.  Not unlike news organizations pandering to bring in an audience for the advertisers, instead of just reporting the news.  (If it bleeds, it leads!)

I’m a capitalist.  I’m all about the profit motive.  Free enterprise.  But some people need to focus on their duty, not their dollar!

Law Enforcement ‘Desperately’ Trying To Hide Use of Surveillance Cell Towers

Law enforcement organizations around the country are desperate to keep the public unaware of the use of Stingrays, a surveillance technology that secretly monitors cell phones, even as courts and lawmakers are starting to fight back.

But, The Koch Brothers Are Meanies!

I’m a big believer in giving credit where credit is due.  And blame.  AND RESPONSIBILITY.

Much of the media likes to pin the badge of how evil the Koch Brothers are, because they support conservative causes.  Funny how they rarely look at George Soros and his tentacles with anything more than a passing glance.

If that…

90 Miles From Tyranny recently posted a list of those organizations funded by Mr. Soros and his minions.  A smattering off the list:

  • American Civil Liberties Union: This group opposes virtually all post-9/11 national security measures enacted by the U.S. government. It supports open borders, has rushed to the defense of suspected terrorists and their abettors, and appointed former New Left terrorist Bernardine Dohrn to its Advisory Board.
  • American Institute for Social Justice: AISJ’s goal is to produce skilled community organizers who can “transform poor communities” by agitating for increased government spending on city services, drug interdiction, crime prevention, housing, public-sector jobs, access to healthcare, and public schools.
  • Center for Community Change: This group recruits and trains activists to spearhead leftist “political issue campaigns.” Promoting increased funding for social welfare programs by bringing “attention to major national issues related to poverty,” the Center bases its training programs on the techniques taught by the famed radical organizer Saul Alinsky.
  • Democratic Justice Fund: DJF opposes the Patriot Act and most efforts to restrict or regulate immigration into the United States — particularly from countries designated by the State Department as “terrorist nations.”
  • Free Exchange on Campus: This organization was created solely to oppose the efforts of one individual, David Horowitz, and his campaign to have universities adopt an “Academic Bill of Rights,” as well as todenounce Horowitz’s 2006 book The Professors. Member organizations of FEC include Campus Progress (a project of the Center for American Progress); the American Association of University Professors; theAmerican Civil Liberties UnionPeople For the American Way; the United States Student Association; theCenter for Campus Free Speech; the American Library AssociationFree Press; and the National Association of State Public Interest Research Groups.
  • Green For All: This group was created by Van Jones to lobby for federal climate, energy, and economic policy initiatives.
  • Institute for America’s Future: IAF supports socialized medicine, increased government funding for education, and the creation of an infrastructure “to ensure that the voice of the progressive majority is heard.”
  • LatinoJustice PRLDF: This organization supports bilingual education, the racial gerrymandering of voting districts, and expanded rights for illegal aliens.
  • Media Matters for America: This organization is a “web-based, not-for-profit … progressive research and information center” seeking to “systematically monitor a cross-section of print, broadcast, cable, radio, and Internet media outlets for conservative misinformation.” The group works closely with the Soros-backed Center for American Progress, and is heavily funded by Democracy Alliance, of which Soros is a major financier.
  • Prison Moratorium Project: This initiative was created in 1995 for the express purpose of working for the elimination of all prisons in the United States and the release of all inmates. Reasoning from the premise that incarceration is never an appropriate means of dealing with crime, it deems American society’s inherent inequities the root of all criminal behavior.
  • Working Families Party: Created in 1998 to help push the Democratic Party toward the left, this front group for the Soros-funded ACORN functions as a political party that promotes ACORN-friendly candidates.

As with so many progressive-based organizations, they may have been started as independent of politics, with good intentions, but later co-opted by the progressive movement.  Others were poisoned from the beginning.

You should really visit 90 Miles From Tyranny and see the whole, long list.

Then go back to poo-poohing the Koch brothers.

Sneaky Congressional BASTARDS!

But, I repeat myself.

Executive branch granted virtually unlimited access to the communications of every American

When I learned that the Intelligence Authorization Act for FY 2015 was being rushed to the floor for a vote—with little debate and only a voice vote expected (i.e., simply declared “passed” with almost nobody in the room)—I asked my legislative staff to quickly review the bill for unusual language. What they discovered is one of the most egregious sections of law I’ve encountered during my time as a representative: It grants the executive branch virtually unlimited access to the communications of every American.

On Wednesday afternoon, I went to the House floor to demand a roll call vote on the bill so that everyone’s vote would have to be recorded. I also sent the letter below to every representative.

With more time to spread the word, we would have stopped this bill, which passed 325-100. Thanks to the 99 other representatives—44 Republicans and 55 Democrats—who voted to protect our rights and uphold the Constitution. And thanks to my incredibly talented staff.

Oops, they did it again!

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,[a] against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized”

Is the above even passingly familiar to ANYONE?

Or at least use these flashlight functions on your cellular telephone!

Spurious Flashlight Functions

500 million downloads nationwide so far…

Top ten flashlight aps are malware that log all your contact, position and transactions and send the data to one of three countries, China, Russia and India.    Can’t just wipe the app, you have to wipe the app and then reset the phone to factory defaults to wipe out the Trojan code area.

You may have this on your phone!

And I thought cyberterrorism was just compromising our power grid.

NOPE – now it’s PERSONAL!

THANKS, Jim!

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
