Rutherford Institute defends Brandon Raub

Via Knuckledraggin' My Life Away

CHESTERFIELD, VA— The Rutherford Institute has come to the defense of a former Marine, 26-year-old Brandon Raub, who was arrested, detained indefinitely in a psych ward and forced to undergo psychological evaluations based solely on the controversial nature of lines from song lyrics, political messages and virtual card games which he posted to his private Facebook page. Although the FBI and Chesterfield County police have not charged Brandon Raub, a resident of Chesterfield County, Va., with committing any crime, they arrested Raub on Thursday, August 16, 2012, and transported him to John Randolph Medical Center, where he was held against his will due to alleged concerns that his Facebook (FB) posts were controversial and "terrorist in nature."

In a hearing held at the hospital, government officials disregarded Raub's explanation that the Facebook posts were being interpreted out of context, sentencing him up to 30 days' further confinement in a VA psych ward. In coming to Raub's defense, Rutherford Institute attorneys are challenging Raub's arrest and forcible detention, as well as the government's overt Facebook surveillance and violation of Raub's First Amendment rights. "For government officials to not only arrest Brandon Raub for doing nothing more than exercising his First Amendment rights but to actually force him to undergo psychological evaluations and detain him against his will goes against every constitutional principle this country was founded upon. This should be a wake-up call to Americans that the police state is here," said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute. "Brandon Raub is no different from the majority of Americans who use their private Facebook pages to post a variety of content, ranging from song lyrics and political hyperbole to trash talking their neighbors, friends and government leaders."

An Alabama woman said she was forced to shoot an intruder that broke into her home this week in order to protect herself and her daughters.

Martha Lewis of Dora, Ala. told WVTM-TV it was about 3 a.m. Tuesday morning when she heard a loud noise, which turned out to be someone kicking in her door. Lewis said she called the police and grabbed her gun, then went to her daughters’ room and told them each to get something to defend themselves with. She said one grabbed an ax and one got a butcher knife.

They were at the top of the stairs when they saw a man standing there at the bottom.

“I knew when he stepped on the landing that I would have to shoot him,” Lewis told the station. “He starts like coming up the stairs and he said, ‘would you shoot me?‘ And I said ’I don’t want to have to but I will.’”

Ignoring her warnings, the man kept coming — and that’s when Lewis said she fired.

“It wasn’t like, oh can I pull the trigger? It was like when should I shoot? When will he be close enough that I know I won’t miss him? That’s one of the things that was going through my mind,” she said.

Dairy Queen employee shoots and kills sword-wielding robber

Via Zombie Rush

A Las Vegas Dairy Queen was the scene of a deadly shooting, after an employee protects the store from a sword-wielding robber.

Metro Police say a masked suspect entered the Dairy Queen with a samurai sword.

"It was a full-sized, martial arts sword," says Lt. Ray Steiber, with Metro Homicide. "It's not something you see every day. That sword is deadly, if in the right hands."

The attempted robbery happened around 12:15 p.m. Sunday at the business located in the 2500 block of South Maryland Parkway, just south of Sahara Avenue.

Action News spoke with the family who owns the Dairy Queen. It was a father and two sons, who were working at the time of the incident. They're extremely shaken up. They say the suspect came into their store screaming and waving the sword violently. That's when one of those family members pulled out a gun, and shot the suspect.

Former union boss at Occupy event: Our goal is to ‘overthrow the capitalist system and build communism’ [VIDEO]

Former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689 president Mike Golash, now an “Occupy” movement organizer, was caught on tape Sunday revealing his political goals: overthrowing capitalism in the United States and instituting a communist government.

“Progressive labor is a revolutionary communist organization,” Golash said during an Occupy DC “People’s Assembly” on August 19.

“Its objective,” he added, “is to make revolution in the United States, overthrow the capitalist system and build communism.”

Golash said he and his comrades are “trying to learn something from the historical revolutions of the past: the Russian revolution, the Chinese revolution, the revolutions in Cuba and Eastern Europe.”

“What can we learn from them so we can build a more successful movement to transform capitalist society?”

Hank Williams Jr.: Obama ‘hates the military, hates the US and we hate him’

Country crooner Hank Williams, Jr. is not shy about sharing his outlandish opinions about President Barack Obama.

This time around, Williams aired his thoughts to an enthusiastic crowd of 8,500 during a concert at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines Friday night.

A reviewer for the Des Moines Register wrote that after he played “We Don’t Apologize for America,” Williams went on a political tirade against his favorite target.

“We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US and we hate him!” he said as cheers erupted from the audience.

Muslims Gang Rape Colorado Woman

I've got something for them.

Court documents reveal that the victim of an alleged vicious sexual assault remembers some of the suspects telling her about being unhappy with the way they were treated in the United States. Five Iraqi nationals were arrested in connection with the case.

Two are charged with the crime while all five are charged as accessories with the crime. Some of the victim’s injuries were described by police as being “rarely seen.”

“I can tell you this is one of the most horrific sexual assaults I’ve seen in my career as a police officer,” said Lt. Howard Black with the Colorado Springs Police Department.

More specifics about the victim’s injuries were redacted from publicly available documents to protect the victim’s privacy.

Rules for Obama Radicals: Vote Fraud, Intimidation, and Chaos

Mike Scruggs

In 1960, Chicago Mayor Richard Daly ran an impressive get-out-the-vote campaign for Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kennedy. The Nixon-Kennedy race in 1960 was a cliffhanger, so Mayor Daly’s delivery of an impressive Democratic voter turnout won Jack Kennedy the City of Chicago, Cook County, and the State of Illinois. Two states where massive vote fraud was suspected—Illinois and Texas—made Kennedy President of the United States. Daly’s victory-producing management of the Chicago election machine was more than spectacular. Credible accusations have been made that it was supernatural. According to these accusations, thousands of people rose from the dead to vote for John Kennedy. Nixon won 92 of 101 counties in Illinois, but despite its heavily Republican Chicago suburbs, Daly’s Chicago gave Kennedy a margin of 450,000 in Cook County, winning Illinois by less that 9,000 votes of 4.75 million cast. In 1962, three Cook County election officials were convicted of vote fraud. Richard Nixon, President Eisenhower, and Senators Dirksen (R, IL) and Goldwater (R, AZ), all believed vote fraud played a significant part in Kennedy’s election.

In Texas, Kennedy got 51 percent of the vote versus Nixon’s 49 percent, winning by 46,000 votes. Despite this 46,000-vote margin, Republicans contended that Lyndon Johnson’s Democratic vote machine had stolen the election by massive vote fraud along the counties bordering Mexico. In Fannin County, there were only 4,895 registered voters, but 6,138 votes were counted, about three-quarters of them for Kennedy. In one precinct in Angelina County, Kennedy received more votes than the total of registered voters. The Republicans contested Texas, but the Texas Board of Elections—all Democrats—declared Kennedy the winner before an election challenge could be properly filed.

In five other states—Hawaii, Missouri, California, New Mexico, and New Jersey—Kennedy’s margin of victory was less than one percent. The Republican Party challenged the vote in eleven states.

In his final analysis, Richard Nixon did not contest the election because he believed such a legal contest would tie up the American Presidency in the courts for years and destroy the American people’s confidence in our democratic election process. The result would have been political and foreign policy chaos. Yet it is not comforting to know that massive vote fraud did occur in Chicago and along the border of Texas and Mexico and may have determined a presidential election.

Is winning a national presidential election by fraud this November less likely than in 1960? The unfortunate answer is that attempted election fraud is even more likely. Is President Obama’s former Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, not now the Mayor of Chicago? Does he not embrace Chicago values and reject Biblical Judeo-Christian values? Emanuel is the gold standard of ruthless political opportunism.

Most Americans believe voter ID laws are a fair and reasonable prevention of voter fraud. Proof of identity is necessary to get a mortgage, auto loan, or even to cash a check. Yet most Democratic legislators claim making someone get an ID to vote is racist. President Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, says the fact that minorities do not turn out to vote in the same percentages as whites is sufficient evidence of discrimination and voter suppression. Few minority voters actually believe such baloney. The only reason to reject voter ID is to commit voter fraud. No one outside of a politically correct straightjacket believes elections without voter ID requirements are likely to be fair and honest. Holder even wants to make voting mandatory, as in many Communist countries. Holder also failed to prosecute New Black Panther Party bullies engaged in 2008 voter intimidation.

Illegal immigration is probably the most formidable potential means for massive voter fraud, especially with all the politically correct restrictions on immigration enforcement. Obama’s recent illegal amnesty of one million “Dream Act” qualifiers—many by fraudulent documents or no documents at all—have already turned into two million, and in my opinion, will probably result in three million amnesties. Obama’s intention is that as many as possible should be made legal voters as quickly as politically feasible. Republican failure to oppose President Obama’s illegal amnesty actions will eventually bury Republican prospects of winning national elections.

While the Obama administration is straining ever nerve to maximize the potential for vote fraud, it is obstructing the military vote by condoning late mailing of absentee ballots resulting in fewer ballots returned. In 2010, less than five percent of the Republican leaning military voters overseas were able to cast ballots that counted.

Of course, we still have Obama’s own Acorn vote-fraud chaos specialists under many front-names. There are over 1.8 million dead people on U.S. voter rolls to work with. About 2.75 million voters are registered in more than one state. Approximately 12 million voter addresses are incorrect, most of them having moved or died. Yet Obama’s Justice department is actively blocking states from cleaning up their voter rolls before the November election.

If Obama cannot win an electoral victory honestly, his actions strongly suggest that his backup strategy is massive fraud, intimidation, and chaos. His campaign is already hiring legions of lawyers to block election certifications unfavorable to him and his party. Part of his strategy may be a total breakdown of the election system. Out of chaos will come totalitarian power. It is all in his mentor, Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals. Marx, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao couldn’t be prouder.

Carlos Hathcock USMC Sniper Scope – Hi-Lux 8X Malcolm

Carlos Hathcock is probably the most famous sniper of all time. He had 93 confirmed kills in Vietnam, and until recently held the world record for a sniper shot at over 2500 yards, using a Browning M2 .50 cal. machinegun. During his entire career as a sniper, Carlos Hathcock used a U. S. Marines version of a Unertl precision riflescope. This was standard issue on his Winchester Model 70 sniper rifle, and he even used the same scope on the .50 cal. for his record shot. It is an odd scope by today’s standards. There are no internal adjustments to zero these old style Unertls. The scopes adjusts with turrets integral to the rear scope mount, and the tube of the scope floats inside adjustment pins.

To buy an original of this USMC scope today would cost you thousands, but Hi-Lux/Leatherwood this past year released an exact replica, called the 8X Malcolm USMC, and the scope really great, but hard to mount. It has an MSRP of $549 and the internet and street price is slightly below that. Hi-Lux sent us one, with the mounting hardware, and we were able to have it mounted for a full range test. Our friends at the American Gunsmithing Institute (AGI) agreed to help us and you by making an instruction video on the difficult mounting process, included here, in the style of their monthly magazine and DVD subscription called GunTech that is available to their Gun Club of America gunsmith student members. If you have any interest in mounting this scope, the video will save you or your gunsmith a lot of headaches.
