The Beast Reveals Its Blackened Soul

I don't usually address the individual nature of the public servant as that is not a monolithic thing, but rather a spectrum of individuals who work in government. Many might have found themselves once brought into the fold during war, or enlistment, and realized after their hitch was up that it was an easy transition from military service to public service. It might be nothing more complicated than that.

Others saw their duty as police officers a long time ago, before hundreds of judicial rulings turned them into a quasi standing army for the collectivists, but they are so close to retirement that rather than fight the beast, they have found an uncomfortable peace with it. Or, they might have been lawyers determined to put the bad guys in prison and joined the government as a county, state or federal attorney. It may not have been their preference that the Supreme Court had ruled the way it had, or that laws they disagreed with were put into place and it became their duty to prosecute those laws. Again, as time went on the beast might have snuck up on them and now it seems futile and even disastrous to fight it. (I would suggest as a side note that it is time to own up and stand up)

TCB cars

I’ve got a little bit of experience of using TCB cars from my younger years and thought I’d pass on some tips that I feel helped to keep me from ever getting busted. Granted, times change, especially with GPS, but I’d like to think these pointers kept me from ever getting arrested for about 10 years of living wild. 
By the way, they need a warrant to put GPS on you. They can tail you just because.
Some of this stuff is so obvious that it doesn’t really need to even be said but you’d be surprised at the idiots that overlook them and end up getting nailed.
One thing I need to say is don’t use a stolen car. You have something to accomplish and you don’t need the authorities looking for you before you even get started.
Your Taking Care of Business car should be completely unremarkable. It needs to not be noticed for obvious reasons - you’re taking care of business and you don’t want people to remember you being in the area. Something 4 or 5 years old, in good mechanical shape with a clean body and good paint and no cracks in the windshield. No bumper or window stickers (says the man with a F*ck Obama sticker on his tailgate) and for God’s sake, no personalized license plates. No loud exhaust. If you require a pickup, a truck that’s commonly used as fleet vehicles would be perfect, like a white Ford Ranger or F-150. You definitely want to stay away from lifted trucks or lowered cars. Keep your music low enough to where it doesn’t attract attention. Blend in. Don’t be noticed and don’t get pulled over getting there.
Obviously, it helps to match the vehicle to the environment - A pickup with a load of hay in the back might look perfectly normal in Denair California but it’s gonna draw attention in Manhattan.
Before leaving for whatever you may be doing, do a walk-around and look for anything that doesn’t look right. Make sure you have both license plates and they’re securely fastened. Look for small punctures in your tail lights, mud on the back of the car, anything that might make it stand out to somebody that’s tailing you.
Make sure you are completely legal. Make sure you have your license, registration and proof of insurance up to date. Check every one of your vehicles’ lights - turn signals, brakes, headlights, backup and most importantly the license plate light. Check your tires - make sure they’re in good shape not only to keep you from getting pulled over for bald tires but because you might have to put them to hard use if things don’t go according to plan.
Leave your regular cell phone at home. Buy a cheap pre-paid phone for your trip. Don’t program any numbers into it in case you have to get rid of it.
Make sure you have a full tank of gas. Never start anything with less than a full tank of gas. Every gas station in the country has security cameras and you’re trying to stay unnoticed and as untraceable as you possibly can. If you’re traveling and need to refuel, hit the stations right off the interstate where they see thousands of people every day and pay cash.

Stop EPA's Implementation of UN's Agenda 21

One of the most successful grassroots campaigns during the past year has been the Stop Agenda 21 movement both at the local level and state level. However, we haven't heard as much about Agenda 21 implementation at the national level.

Of course, there were President Bill Clinton's establishment of the President's Council on Sustainable Development by executive order in 1993 and President Obama's "Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance" executive order in 2009. And, many federal agencies have been incorporating sustainability into various aspects of their organizations. Still, virtually all Stop Agenda 21 grassroots activity has been focused on the local and state levels.

The establishment of Clinton's President's Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD) started a pattern of denial by federal government agencies regarding any connection with the UN's Agenda 21. Even though the PCSD was clearly established in 1993 in support of the UN's Agenda 21 and its Sustainable Development proposals from the UN's '92 Earth Summit in Rio, the PCSD's statements and documents never referred to the UN and Agenda 21.

We have evidence that federal officials were taking pains to make the PCSD appear to be completely separate from the UN's Agenda 21 because J. Gary Lawrence, an advisor to the PCSD, said the following in 1998:



Rand Paul: Time to terminate the TSA

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) continued to rage against the Transportation Security Administration on Tuesday, encouraging supporters to join a campaign to get it to stop "groping toddlers and grandmothers."

"The American people shouldn't be subjected to harassment, groping, and other public humiliation simply to board an airplane," Paul writes in a press release. "It's time to END the TSA and get the government's hands back to only stealing our wallets instead of groping toddlers and grandmothers."
The Kentucky Republican goes on to encourage recipients to add their names to an anti-TSA Campaign for Liberty petition.

YouTube disables popular Christian video site

The author of a soon-to-be-released book on Christian apologetics, “The Magic Man in the Sky: Effectively Defending the Christian Faith,” is questioning the motives behind the termination of the immensely popular PPSimmons Ministry account on YouTube.

Where once one of the more popular God and Country YouTube Channels – with more than 23,000 subscribers, 530-plus videos and 21 million views – could be accessed, now a barren page is found, save for a message. The message reads: “This account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines and/or claims of copyright infringement.”

For Pastor Carl Gallups, one of the people behind the popular PPSimmons YouTube Ministry, seeing a channel disabled he has worked tirelessly to build and promote since 2009 was devastating.
“It was as if you have a thriving business and you came to work one day and the building was burnt down and everything you had created was gone. Instantly,” he told WND.

Bin Laden: Kill Obama to Make Biden President

Osama bin Laden asked that Al Qaeda form hit squads to kill President Obama and General David Petraeus, but that Vice President Biden be spared because Biden is "totally unprepared for the presidency" and making him president by killing Obama would "lead the U.S. into a crisis."
In a 45-page letter to a newly promoted al Qaeda lieutenant in May 2010, part of a trove of documents found in bin Laden's Pakistan compound that were placed online Thursday by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point, bin Laden tells him he had asked his predecessor to put together two teams in Pakistan and Afghanistan to target Petraeus and Obama during their visits "and target the aircraft of either one of them."

Rep. Issa Pushing Contempt Order Against Eric Holder

-- Time to double-down and get Speaker Boehner behind this effort

Rep. Darrell Issa has now finished making his case for holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

Holder, who once stated he wants to see kids brainwashed into supporting gun control, has presided over a Justice Department that helped smuggle thousands of illegal guns into Mexico, all for the purpose of justifying greater restrictions upon firearms in the U.S.

This Fast & Furious scandal has resulted in the deaths of more than 300 Mexican nationals, plus two U.S. federal agents.

Issa has published a pair of documents that makes the case for pinning contempt charges on Holder and has sent them to every member of his Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Issa’s case is based, in part, upon the fact that Holder’s Justice Department “has yet to provide a single document for 12 out of the 22 categories contained in the subpoena schedule.”  In many cases, documents provided by the Department have been completely or mostly blackened out.

Sources on Capitol Hill believe that Issa has the votes to push a contempt citation out of committee.  However, it is unclear whether House Speaker John Boehner is supportive of such a citation.

Fox News reports “that Boehner and House Republican Leader Eric Cantor do not want to deal with a contempt citation against Holder because ‘it’s off message for them.’”

Well, gun owners need to help Boehner see that this is “on message” for him.  This is a quest for justice, as Eric Holder needs to be held accountable for the lies, deceptions and dead bodies left in the wake of Fast & Furious.

Already, more than 100 congressmen have called for Holder’s resignation.  Holding Eric Holder in contempt could bring a fine of $1,000 and a year in jail.

ACTION: Please ask your Representative to urge House Speaker John Boehner to get fully behind a contempt citation against Eric Holder.

On the tragic second of May 1863, at the height of his power and moment of his greatest victory, Confederate Genl. Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson was wounded in the dark by his own men in the Battle of Chancellorsville. He died 8 days later. Jackson got his wishes: he died on a Sunday, & he did not live to see the death of his country's independence.

His body lay in state at the Virginia capitol. At the end of the day Governor Letcher ordered the doors closed. Shortly there came a great pounding on the door, and when it was opened there stood a one-armed soldier. When they asked him what he wanted, he raised his stump and said, 'By this right arm that I gave for my country, I demand to see my commander one last time!" When Governor Letcher heard all this, he escorted the veteran to Jackson's bier himself.

Warning: Vile Language.

I opened a real can of worms last week. I hadn’t even planned on going fishing. But one thing I know about worms, is that they can be found wallowing in the mud.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Whenever you go trolling for the bottom feeders you can expect to get slapped with a little bit of muck.

It takes a thick skin to put up with some of the crap that comes my way. But that is OK. I learned in life that if you are going to dish it out you better know how to take it.

Well, I can take it. I refuse to be ridiculed into silence…especially by the deviant-left….and especially when what I am speaking is the truth.

I must have hit a nerve. As my buddy Mark wrote me, “You must be doing something right, Coach. You know you are effective when you can hear the pigs squeal.”

Well, I don’t know if they are pigs, but they sure act like it. More aptly, they are like dogs returning to their vomit.

The tolerant-sodomites unleashed their gutter-language on me after the posting of my commentary “Two Manly Men in Maine.” I thought it would be educational for you to be able to read some of the emails I received as a result of an innocent, coherent, exposition of the Truth.

The different faces of fear

I can say fear was constant. Sometimes moved you and made decisions for you, sometimes was just as a reminder in back of your head. Fear from unknown, fear from pain, fear from minor things that can become disaster, things like cold or injury.

Just like with most of the things there is no rules, so fear is different for different kind of people, and not everybody react same. Someone can say that fear can kill you, yes I agree, but also fear can save your life. Fear can „do“ things instead of you.

I ve seen people doing some weird and crazy things just because they were terrified for their life or lives of their families. I seen man who beat two armed men with rifle, he was driven mad with fear, fear for his family what those two men gonna do to them. He did not even try to shoot , he just use his rifle as some kind of stick or baton, and beat those two guys almost to death.

He was not something like Chuck Norris or anything similar, he was terrified father. Fear just turned him into a monster.

When you find yourself in situation of life and death fear can just overwhelm you.

Futility and ignorance

Washington’s column describes an incident in which a crowd of black teens beat two white reporters. Washington puzzles over their treatment by police. However, the incident was unreported and kept under wraps for two weeks by The Pilot.

Gingerly digging for answers, Washington asks whether the case was racially motivated. That tells us a lot about the credulity of the journalism community, and the futility of the police. How long will the mainstream media and the police continue to cover up the disquieting truth of what’s happening in our cities?

No one is in a better position to answer for the media than Washington herself. Facts, however uncomfortable they may be, are nevertheless facts, and ignoring the painful ones doesn’t make them inconsequential, it just encourages more of the same.

Are newspapers primarily vehicles for commercial advertising, or is their intended purpose to report and analyze events affecting the communities they serve, irrespective of concerns other than the truth?

Norton Rubenstein

Blame The Pilot

As someone who has been railing against the liberal media for too long to be surprised about something like this, I’m sorry to say, I am still surprised

What has The Pilot got against the truth? You’ll report endlessly about Trayvon Martin (when you have very few facts), but not once report on your own employees being beaten by a mob?

I do notice that your publisher was just confirmed by the Obama administration to a post that will surely grant him a lifetime of comfort. Too bad the same can’t be said for those who have to stay in Norfolk

Don’t blame anyone else when the city is in flames. That falls on you.

Stuart Schwartz

In the aftermath of a beating

Re: “A beating at Church and Brambleton” (Michelle Washington op-ed column, May 1): A mob of teenagers beats two adults driving near downtown Norfolk, and this didn’t merit a story in the newspaper? My suspicion is that the editors decided they didn’t want to run a story that cast a poor light on race relations in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting.

The blame falls entirely on the perpetrators. Having gotten out the car and then having been attacked by antisocial, hate-filled young men, Dave Forster had the right to defend himself if the beating appeared to be something severe, and Marjon Rostami equally had the right to defend Forster or herself.

What if Forster or Rostami had been armed? Someone might have been shot. While that would be unfortunate, it would be better than either Forster or Rostami suffering severe injury or death, which could have easily happened. They are very lucky they merely suffered enough pain to keep them out of work for a week. What if they had been walking from the theater to their car when this happened? I recommend they buy a weapon and learn how to carry it responsibly, or stay far away from such situations.

Consider how this case parallels the Trayvon Martin case. Like Forster, Zimmerman should have stayed in his car. But he made the decision to check out a suspicious person, just as Forster made a decision to check out the rock throwing. Both did something unwise but legal. Zimmerman claims next that he was attacked by a 17-year old, and the beating was most definitely severe. Unfortunately for Zimmerman, he didn’t have Rostami there as a witness.

In both of these cases, the perpetrators were black and the victims were white (or “white Hispanic” as the media have labeled Zimmerman).

The races are not important, other than to note that there are a lot of troubled black youth in our society. You can be white or Asian or Hispanic, or a combination of all three (as I am) and be troubled, and you can certainly be black and be a wonderful, responsible person. But the antisocial nature of much of what transpires with black youth today (violent and misogynistic music is one symptom) is a real problem.

Carry Me a Little Farther


DAILY CONSTITUTIONALIST [AUGUSTA, GA], July 17, 1862, p. 3, c. 2

At the battle of Shiloh, early in the action,I saw a young warrior
by a tree aiming deliberately towards the enemy with a Sharp’s
rifle, and, from curiosity, I rode up to him and asked him who he
was shooting at. The reply was, “at those everlasting Yanks; I
want to put an end to some of them.” I asked him why he did not
advance, and he said, “my leg is broken, but if you will carry me a
little further, I will kill more of them, for I have yet six cartridges.”
This brave fellow, whose leg was afterwards amputated, was
a young Cherokee, formerly from Tahlequah, Cherokee Nation.

This Treasure Hunter Says He Has Located Bin Laden’s Body

That smiling guy is Bill Warren, the Californian treasure hunter who claimed he was searching for Osama Bin Laden's dead body back in June 2011. He didn't find him then, but now he claims he has located the cadaver.

Talking to Spanish newspaper El Mundo, Warren says he has no doubt about where Osama is:
I've located where they threw him away. I'm the only one with this information. He's 200 miles to the west of the Indian city of Surat.
Warren—who claims he has discovered more than 200 shipwrecks during his career as a treasure-hunter—says that bin Laden's body is still at that same location, deep under water. His thought is that, since the Navy weighted down the bag, the body hasn't moved from where it was dropped. He is now trying to rent Russian deep diving equipment to locate his payload, and to conduct DNA tests once he finds him.

At least, that's what he believes. He says he pinpointed the drop point from photos recently released by the US Navy.

Sources tell ABC15 that a prominent former neo-Nazi is among five people shot and killed Wednesday in a Gilbert neighborhood.

Gilbert police Sgt. Bill Balafas said the victims in the Wednesday shooting are two men, two women, and a young girl between 1 and 2 years old.

Sources say J.T. Ready, who was running for Pinal County Sheriff, was involved in the shooting, however it is not clear if he was the gunman or a victim.

Ready was known to be a member of the National Socialist Movement who advocated using violence to stop people from crossing the border. In a 2010 interview with ABC15 he discussed his beliefs and showed off his cache of high-powered weapons.

Authorities have not yet confirmed the identities of the victims and suspect.
