Target on your cyber back: DHS has a list of words deemed ‘suspicious’

The Department of Homeland Security has flagged hundreds of words as "suspect" – and while many make sense, like "Al Qaeda," some are just plain odd. For example, the DHS may dig through your cyber life if you write something about snow. Or pork.

So, you’ve just come back from a beach holiday in Mexico and posted about it on your blog. Or maybe you’ve tweeted about skiing lessons? Updated your status, saying you’re stuck home with food poisoning?

All those things will tweak the DHS antennae, according to a manual published by the agency. The Analyst’s Desktop Binder, used by agency employees at their National Operations Center to identify "media reports that reflect adversely on DHS and response activities," includes hundreds of words that set off Big Brother’s silent alarms.

Department chiefs were forced to release the manual following a House hearing over documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. It revealed how analysts monitor social networks and media organizations for comments that "reflect adversely" on the government.

Woman’s death ‘an obvious murder’; charges filed against three suspects

The Ray County Prosecutor is expected to file charges against three Richmond residents, including a three-time state high-school wrestling champion, in what police are describing as the murder of Michelle Rhueport, 40.

Rhueport was found dead in her home at 411 Farris St. shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday.
On Wednesday, police picked up two suspects, Brandon Simpson, 25, and James Gant, 25, for questioning. Simpson, the former Richmond state wrestling champ and football running back, and Gant were formally arrested Wednesday evening, Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Collin Stosberg said.

Both men are being held without bond on probation-and-parole violations pending formal charges in the Rhueport death, Stosberg said.

Danielle Rogers, Ray County’s prosecuting attorney, was in court Thursday morning and had yet to determine which charges would be filed.

A third suspect, a 23-year-old Richmond woman, is on a 24-hour hold pending filing of charges.
Stosberg said that details of what occurred inside Rhueport’s home would be withheld until charges are filed.

Thanks to Harry Reid, illegal aliens will continue to receive IRS refunds

A criminal offense.

Just who does Sen. Reid really represent?

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) blocked a move to bring the Child Tax Credit Integrity Preservation Act (S577) to the floor, and in doing so, assured that those working in this country illegally will continue to receive billions of dollars in tax refunds for children that do not even live in this country.

In 2011, U.S. Treasury Department Inspector General Russell George released a report revealing that the Internal Revenue Service doled out $4.2 billion in refundable tax credits to illegal alien in 2010 alone.

The refunds were given in the form of the so-called ‘earned income child tax credits,’ which are designed to alleviate the tax burden on low income wage earners with children.

DNA study seeks origin of Appalachia's Melungeons

Via Billy

For years, varied and sometimes wild claims have been made about the origins of a group of dark-skinned Appalachian residents once known derisively as the Melungeons. Some speculated they were descended from Portuguese explorers, or perhaps from Turkish slaves or Gypsies.

Now a new DNA study in the Journal of Genetic Genealogy attempts to separate truth from oral tradition and wishful thinking. The study found the truth to be somewhat less exotic: Genetic evidence shows that the families historically called Melungeons are the offspring of sub-Saharan African men and white women of northern or central European origin.

And that report, which was published in April in the peer-reviewed journal, doesn't sit comfortably with some people who claim Melungeon ancestry.

"There were a whole lot of people upset by this study," lead researcher Roberta Estes said. "They just knew they were Portuguese, or Native American."

Beginning in the early 1800s, or possibly before, the term Melungeon (meh-LUN'-jun) was applied as a slur to a group of about 40 families along the Tennessee-Virginia border. But it has since become a catch-all phrase for a number of groups of mysterious mixed-race ancestry.

Women in the Infantry, what is the problem?

Problem solving is a simple process. Define the problem. Identify solutions. Wargame different solutions. Pick the optimal solution from those identified and execute. So why is there a push for women in the Infantry? What exactly is the problem that this is designed to solve?

The Marine Corps opened up Infantry training to "WMs" or Women Marines. As I understand it the training is open but the job field is still closed. The training is to help improve the level of training and readiness of female Marines who necessarily augment line Infantry units in executing the "Security, Stability and Support, and Civil Support" portions of Full Spectrum Ops.

Wait you, say, Full Spectrum Ops is all about kicking in doors! Not so. A military operation is broken up into four areas, "Offense/Defense, Security, Stability, and Civil Support" that is very familiar to veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. Notice that we do not need women to conduct Direct Action.

Let me say that again, WE DO NOT NEED WOMEN TO CONDUCT DIRECT ACTION. So why is there a push to get women into the Infantry? What exact problem is this going to solve?

We need women for all the "other stuff" such as community engagement, medical relief, female interrogation, all the stuff that comes after direct action. SOCOM has been very successful with their "Female Engagement Team" (FET) program. The difference between a FET and a random female who goes through Infantry training is one of focus. Infantry training focuses on Direct Action, and as I stated before, we don't need females to conduct that mission. We need women trained in Civil Affairs and community engagement, not Ranger qualified door kickers.

Historic Pond Spring, General Joe Wheeler Home in Hillsboro open after restoration effort

The commanders in Cuba made their reputations as generals during the American Civil War -- on opposite sides. Maj. Gen. William Shafter commanded the V Corps, which invaded Cuba. He had been a Union brigadier general.

Maj. Gen. "Fighting Joe"Wheeler led a division of V Corps. During the Civil War he commanded the cavalry of the Confederate Army of Tennessee. During the charge up San Juan Hill,Wheeler forgot where he was and, as the Spanish ran from their positions, he yelled, "Come on! We've got the damn Yankees on the run!"

"Come On! We've Got The Damn Yankees On The Run!"

HILLSBORO, Alabama -- Meandering under a lush canopy of kudzu-tangled red oaks, Kara Long walked toward the resting place of three families from the 19th and 20th centuries.

"This is the family cemetery," said Long, curator of the 50-acre Pond Spring, the historic grounds best known for its final residents, the Wheelers. "But he's not buried here."

Long ends her tour of the plantation, commonly referred to as the Gen. Joseph Wheeler home, by noting that the Napoleon-sized soldier -- and later congressman -- is one of only two Confederate generals buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

"He had the honor of being buried there because of his service to the U.S. after the Civil War," said Long, a veritable encyclopedia of everything Pond Spring.

As Commandos Raid Tampa, US State Dept Demands Power to Declare War?

Clinton Goes Commando, Sells Diplomats as Shadow Warriors ... Clinton, wearing pearls and a silver and black blouse, climbed the stage and began to speak. And soon it all made more sense. She had an idea to sell — and to defend ... She described a vision in which shadowy U.S. and allied Special Operations Forces, working hand in hand with America's embassies and foreign governments, together play a key role in preventing low-intensity conflicts. And where prevention fails, the same commando-diplomat team goes on the attack ... – Wired (5/24/12)

It happened again at the recent Tampa-based conference, "Building the Global SOF Partnership" ...

The US military staged a mock drill in violation of 130+ years of the Posse Comitatus Act that bars domestic forces from active use on US soil.

It wasn't just the US, either. Some 90 nations supposedly participated in the drill, which aimed to "rescue" Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, supposedly kidnapped by terrorists. There were helicopters overhead and a tactical assault showed up by water. Then special ops teams invaded a "terrorist village" near the Convention Center and rescued the mayor, who said he was grateful.

The ongoing militarization of all phases of US society via Homeland Security searches and military training exercises surely should be of concern to those who are searching for a less warlike and aggressive United States.

But the pendulum apparently continues to swing in the other direction. While the mock drill received a lot of attention in the alternative media, statements of the guest of honor, Hillary Clinton, are worthy of equivalent concern.

Sheriff Joe’s posse: ‘Hawaii duped Arizona’

“Hawaii duped Arizona” in its response to Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett’s request to verify Barack Obama’s eligibility for the 2012 election, charges the lead investigator of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse.

“We have developed incontrovertible proof that the verification provided by the Hawaii Department of Health to Arizona’s secretary of state on May 22 really doesn’t verify anything of significance,” said Mike Zullo, who is in Hawaii to follow up on his team’s initial findings concerning Obama’s birth record.

Kansas Governor Signs Bill Effectively Banning Shariah

Republican Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed a bill aimed at keeping state courts and agencies from using Islamic or other non-U.S. laws when making decisions, his office said on Friday.

The law has been dubbed the "sharia bill" because critics say it targets the Islamic legal code. Sharia, or Islamic law, covers all aspects of Muslim life, including religious obligations and financial dealings. Opponents of state bans say they could nullify wills or legal contracts between Muslims.

Supporters said the law will reassure foreigners in Kansas that state laws and the U.S. Constitution would protect them. Opponents said it singled out Muslims for ridicule and was unnecessary because American laws prevail on U.S. soil.

Sherriene Jones-Sontag, a spokeswoman for the governor, said in an e-mail that the bill "makes it clear that Kansas courts will rely exclusively on the laws of our state and our nation when deciding cases and will not consider the laws of foreign jurisdictions."

Here is what I have at the moment, we will be gathering for a Summer Texas PatCom. There has been great interest from folks in the San Antonio area, I suppose now is the time to start asking questions. Who is willing to travel? One day event? Meet at my place? Meet at a public restaurant or tavern?

Or do folks want me to call the shots? I already have support on my side of town to hold a small gathering, I do have room for anyone that might want to camp out, there is a country watering hole not far from my place, I will stop in today to check it out.

I am stuck in limbo at the moment, should I just have another BBQ at my place and invite all that wish to attend, the trip from San Antonio area is about three plus hours to my place. It would be nice to hold a function in San Antonio.

The ultimate goal is to bring like-minded folks together to help build a support network, this is not a militia, it’s average citizens coming together to build tribe and support. I have to assume most folks are preppers, I wish to share non hybrid garden seed, local connections in long-term food storage, I would also like to hold a swap meet.
