Deanna Ballman Murder: Ali Salim, Ohio doctor, charged in 2012 murder of pregnant woman

Via Randy's Right


A central Ohio doctor was charged Wednesday with rape and two counts of murder in the death of a pregnant woman, whose body was found last summer in her car after she had headed to a house-cleaning job listed in an online ad.

Ali Salim of New Albany was indicted by a Delaware County grand jury on nine felony counts in the deaths of 23-year-old Deanna Ballman of Pataskala and her unborn child.

Ballman, who lived in Pataskala and was nine-months pregnant, was reported missing the day before her body was found Aug. 1 in a vehicle parked near a road northeast of Columbus. A coroner determined she died of acute heroin intoxication.

Relatives said she had gone to a New Albany house-cleaning job listed in an online classified ad. Her mother said Ballman called saying she wasn't feeling well, and then the call was dropped.

Salim, 44, was indicted on two counts each of murder and tampering with evidence, as well as single counts of rape, assault, kidnapping, corrupting another with drugs and abuse of a corpse.

Family fights back when 3 gunmen storm their home; one intruder shot

Via Cousin John

A 21-year-old man sprang into action to protect his family Thursday night when three suspects barged into their northwest Harris County home.
The young man was home with his mother and father in the 3900 block of Brook Garden when the armed men forced their way into the house around 8 p.m., according to Harris County Sheriff’s deputies.
The family was in the middle of baking a cake, when there was a knock at the door.
“I see a young boy and I think it is a friend of my son so I open it a little bit,” the father explained. “These guys push and out comes two more, they push me on the ground.”
After the father was down, the suspects went after the mother. That is when the son ran and got his dad’s gun. He opened fire and hit one of the suspects, who died in the back bedroom. The other two suspects fled the scene.

Religious Humanists Hate Confederates

Via Billy

It seems that the professional South-haters up North must be running out of new material to verbally bash the South over the head with so they have fallen back to attacking Andersonville Prison in Georgia again.
A recent article by John J. Dunphy that appeared in The Telegraph in Alton, Illinois trotted out all the old anti-Andersonville stories about prisoner abuse and starving prisoners and what a wretched man Andersonville’s commander Captain Henry Wirz was. If you’ve read this kind of thing once you’ve read it a dozen times. I notice those who roundly trash Andersonville and Captain Wirz have no comments to make about Fort Delaware and its commander, socialist Albin Schoepf, who was one of “Lincoln’s Marxists.” Lonnie Speer, in his book Portals to Hell  tells of Fort Delaware. He says “Albin Francisco Schoepf took over command and served in this capacity until the end of the war. 
Schoepf allowed his subordinates unrestrained control inside the compound and it eventually evolved into the most brutal POW institution in America.” So the Yankees’ Fort Delaware evolved into “the most brutal POW institution in America.” Gee, wonder how the politically correct missed that little fact. Probably because they weren’t looking too hard and they hope you don’t either. Actually, the miserable conditions Mr. Dunphy talks about at Andersonville existed in just about all the Northern POW camps as well—Point Lookout, Elmira, Camp Douglas—you name it, and most of the conditions at Andersonville were present, which made it even worse because the North had the resources to alleviate such conditions. The South did not.

Cheerleader flips and makes half court trick shot

“A N.C. Southerner’s Apology to General Sherman”

“Long before you ever came into North Carolina, your name was a terror to us; news of your march through Georgia and South Carolina had preceded you. “Massa Harold” (my great-grandfather) had expected you to have horns and hoofs; he must have been surprised when you appeared on a neighboring plantation as an ordinary man of forty-five with a head of unruly red hair and a shaggy beard.

But your soldiers were hungry, and they scouted the country-side for food. That is why they came to our house. (No, it was not one of those story-book mansions with white columns; it was only a two-room log cabin. There had been better days for the family, but that is another story). On that morning in March of 1865 when your “bummers” rode up to our gate, “Ole Mammy” (my great-grandmother, then a woman of forty-seven) was standing in the yard. Beside her stood a young woman of eighteen (Aunt Fed), a boy of nine (Uncle Richard), and a little girl of six (Aunt Queen), and a Negro slave (“Aunt Bessie”)…and Frank (my grandfather, then aged thirteen) were down in the swamp with an old horse and a cow. (Three older sons had been taken prisoners at the fall of Fort Fisher just the month before.)

Your men found the cow; she would not be quiet and so ended in your pot. (She was dry anyhow.) Frank came up to the house and found your men digging in a ditch for a keg of gold which “Aunt Bessie” had told them was buried there. (People still come and dig for that treasure, but ‘ther aint nare been one.”) Thanks for cleaning out the ditch.

And we got the feathers picked up and the bed ticks sewed back together. Thus far, we were about even; you got the cow, and we kept the horse; you cleaned out the ditch and made us clean up the house. But the thing that made us mad was that pot of chicken stew.

Frank remembered it well. It was the last chicken they had. “Old Mammy” had saved it for an emergency. When she heard that you were over on the Faison Plantation, she knew that the emergency had come. She had hoped her family would have it eaten before you came, but it was still in the pot when she heard that dreaded cry, “Yankees, Yankees; the Yankees are coming.”

And everyone had to hurry to his place. At first your soldiers were nice enough, but after all that digging they were short on manners. They ransacked the house, and not finding the gold, they spied the small pot on the hearth. Now, if your men had drawn up a chair and had said grace like Christians ought to do and had eaten the stew, it might have passed without being recorded. But no, your men were mad and poured out stew on the floor and then stepped on the pieces of chicken. This was too much for that hungry thirteen year-old boy; he darted up from his stool with fire in his eyes. “God damn you dirty rascals.”

Obama, Holder Called Out for Not Enforcing Existing Gun Laws

A group of 23 Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee Friday sent letters to President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder demanding existing gun laws be enforced before additional limitations are passed.

The committee, which has held hearings in recent weeks on ways to prevent gun violence, again called into focus statistics that show a dramatic drop in federal weapons prosecutions over the past decade.

The letters cite a Syracuse University study that show firearms prosecutions under  President George W. Bush peaked at 11,015 in 2004 while the Obama administration has prosecuted about 7,774 firearms cases in 2012.

“A prosecution rate this low is not indicative of a Department of Justice that takes the act of illegally attempting to acquire a firearm seriously,” Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said in a statement accompanying the letters.

“We must all be looking for ways to prevent senseless acts of violence and the taking of innocent life but the best place to start would be enforcing the laws that Congress has already enacted.”

The Price of Arrogance


Whether viewed from a national or local level, the battle over our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms for self-protection can be reduced to elitist arrogance and hypocrisy versus reality and cold hard facts.

Recently, the University of Colorado issued an advisory for women on how to deter sexual assault. Some of the tips included

→ Be realistic about your ability to protect yourself
→ Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating
→ Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone

In some school districts, teachers are being taught to throw objects at an armed attacker to distract him then charge at him with a stapler or scissors.

→ Passive resistance may be your best defense

None of the tips included taking a gun safety class, getting trained in self-defense, or utilizing the right to keep and bear arms for self-protection . . . . I rest my case.

N.C. Wildlife Officials Warn Hunters Of Deadly Rabbit Fever

Via Carl

The N.C. Wildlife Commission and state Division of Public Health are encouraging hunters to take precautions after a rabbit hunter in eastern North Carolina tested positive for a rare but serious disease called tularemia, also known as rabbit fever.

A second member of the same hunting party also showed signs of the disease.

“We’re just asking hunters to take precautions and be aware,” said Carolyn Rickard, spokeswoman for the N.C. Wildlife Commission.

Rabbit hunting season in North Carolina runs from Nov. 17 to Feb. 28.

Both hunters appear to be recovering, the commission noted.

Although rare, rabbit fever is a serious and potentially fatal disease. It’s also one where preventative measures can be taken.

Marilyn Haskell, public health veterinarian and epidemiologist with the N.C. Division of Public Health, said the division’s role is to prevent diseases and its employees would like to get a prevention and education message out to the public.

Tularemia is a disease caused by the bacterium Francisella tularensis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s typically found in animals, especially rodents and rabbits. Most cases occur in rural areas.

There have been 17 cases reported in North Carolina since 1999. 

Stalin's son was a war deserter: German magazine claims dictator's child surrendered to Nazi forces

Via Timothy
  • A Soviet archive has yielded up one of the last secrets of World War Two that dictator Josef Stalin took to his grave - the fact his son Yakov gave himself up to Nazi forces during the 1941 invasion of his country.
  •  The party line in Stalin’s Russia was always that Yakov Dzhugashvili, the eldest son of the murderous Communist tyrant, was captured.

  • Now a file of the Defence Ministry suggests that he gave himself up because of his disillusionment with the conduct of the war which saw 1.3 million Red Army men captured, killed or disabled in the first weeks of the Nazi invasion in June 1941.

    Spiegel Magazine has accessed the files and prints the story of Stalin’s son, known as Yasha, in its latest edition. 

    Stalin disowned him in 1928 following a dispute about a girl and the defence ministry archive in Podolsk reveals Stalin writing to his mother in April 1928: 

    'Tell Yasha that I think he behaved like a thug and an extortionist, someone with whom I no longer have anything in common and with whom I no longer want a relationship. Let him live where and with whom he wants. J. Stalin.'

    Yakov volunteered for the army in 1937, became a lieutenant in 1940 and was a commander in the 14th Howitzer Regiment of the 14th Tank Division at the time Hitler unleashed three million men in Operation Barbarossa on June 22 1941.

Blueprint NC: How A Shadowy Left-Wing Hydra Plans A Targeted Attack On NC Republicans

Via Terry

 Blueprint NC - Organizations

 On Thursday, the Charlotte Observer ran a story about a leaked confidential memo released by a below-the-radar shadow group called Blueprint NC. The confidential memo revealed a left-wing plan to attack North Carolina’s governor and other conservative leaders.

According to the Observer’s piece, the confidential memo was from Bluepint NC’s Communications Coordinator Stephanie Bass and addressed to its “partner groups.”

As part of a two-year plan to “Eviscerate, Mitigate, Litigate, Cogitate, and Agitate,” the memo outlines a strategy to target Republican Governor Pat McRory and other conservative leaders:
  • “Crippl(e) their leaders (McCrory, Tillis, Berger etc.)”
  • “Eviscerate the leadership and weaken their ability to govern.”
  • “Pressure McCrory at every public event.”
  • “Slam him when he contradicts his promises.”
  • “Private investigators and investigative reporting, especially in the executive branch…”
If you’ve never heard of Blueprint NC, you’re not alone. The semi-private group seems dedicated to keeping a low public profile, according to its website:
Blueprint has been created as a strategic initiative – focused on creating collaborative change and not focused on a public identity beyond our partners. Blueprint does not seek recognition for itself, but prefers that its partners be recognized for the good work that they do. [Emphasis added.]
In 2010, Blueprint NC’s “partners” were  identified by the Civitas Institute which revealed a conglomeration of national and state “progressive” organizations—including the AFL-CIO’s A. Philip Randolph Institute, as well as the anti-life group NARAL.

2nd Amendment Action Alert~Republican Senator Peter Brunstetter Trying to Overturn the Castle Doctrine in NC!


 A snowball's chance in hell, but nevertheless........

Action Needed ASAP
Action Item: Senator Peter Brunstetter, a Republican, is trying to make it a felony offense in NC to willfully discharge a weapon in any building or vehicle, including your home, to harm another or incite fear. Big government Republicans are just as bad and dangerous as a Liberal. So, with this short bill, Senator Brunstetter is seeking to overturn the Castle Doctrine in NC.
This bill makes a criminal of anyone defending themselves in any building, structure, motor vehicle, or other conveyance, erection, or enclosure with the intent to do harm or incite fear. Call Brunstetter and tell him to rescind: Senate Bill 124.§14-34.10. Which states: Discharge firearm within enclosure to do harm or incite fear. Unless covered under some other provision of law providing greater punishment, any person who willfully or wantonly discharges or attempts to discharge a firearm within any building, structure, motor vehicle, or other conveyance, erection, or enclosure with the intent to do harm or incite fear shall be punished as a Class E felon.
Link to bill
He and his progressive friends have no right to trample upon our second amendment rights and make felons of us for protecting ourselves or our loved ones. We all have an inalienable right, enshrined in our US Constitution, to keep and bear arms. No government or bureaucrat has the authority to take that away. We will actively seek another to run against him in the next election.
