NC Carteret County Sheriff Asa Buck addressed the Pvt Bryan Jackson Buck SCV Camp at the June meeting

 A pleasant time was had by all and enjoyed his down-home presentation.
Sheriff Asa Buck came out and spoke to our group about the dangers of prescription drug misuse and abuse and criminal activity related to prescription drug diversion. Sheriff Buck reported on the recent initiative known as “Operation Pill Crusher” which has targeted those in our community who sell prescription medication. The sheriff spoke about the cost to taxpayers related to prescription drug abuse especially concerning  inmate housing, Medicaid fraud, and the millions of dollars associated with hospital costs for treating overdose patients and newborns diagnosed with neonatal abstinence syndrome.

The Sheriff talked about all his office has done and continues to do to bring awareness to this issue. He spoke about the “Pills Can Kill” prescription drug take back program and their “MEDS” program. MEDS stands for Monitor your prescription; Educate family and friends about the dangers of prescription drug misuse, Dispose of medication you no longer need and Store medication you do need in a safe place that only you or trusted family member know about.

Kept Secret From The Public: Now legal memo backing drone strike that killed American Anwar al-Awlaki is released


A federal court on Monday released a previously secret government memo outlining the legal justification for the 2011 killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen and accused al-Qaeda operative, in a drone strike in Yemen.

The document was released under order of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit in New York and provides the most detailed explanation to date for the legal reasoning behind Awlaki’s killing. Its disclosure also represents a significant capitulation by the Obama administration, which fought for years to keep the memo — as well as many other aspects of its targeted-killing program — secret from the public.

Excellent! Top Green Beret Officer Forced to Resign Over Affair With WaPo Reporter (Video)

A legendary Special Forces commander was quietly forced to leave the U.S. Army after he admitted to a love affair with a Washington Post war correspondent, who quit her job to secretly live with him for almost a year in one of the most dangerous combat outposts in Afghanistan. 

U.S. Army Special Operations Command never publicly disclosed that highly-decorated Green Beret Major Jim Gant was relieved of command at the end of a harrowing 22 months in combat in March 2012. 

His commanders charged in confidential files that he had "indulged in a self-created fantasy world" of booze, pain pills and sex in a tribal village deep in Taliban and al Qaeda country with his "wife," journalist Ann Scott Tyson. 

"We did fall in love, I would say over the course of about a week," Tyson told ABC News in an interview, recalling that Gant asked her to marry him within a few days of meeting each other in 2010. She laughed him off at first, but eventually he won her over. 

By the time he was yanked out of Afghanistan two years later because of his relationship with Tyson, Gant also had won over three Pashtun tribes with substantial influence throughout Kunar province.

Top commanders had tasked him with turning the tide of a conflict America was losing, and in his corner of the war, Gant was winning.

It Is Treason…

Via avordvet

if the President of the United States and his government conspired with the Mexican government to deliberately let children from Central America transit through that country on their way to the United States. The evidence does suggest this:

(1) the solicitation at FedBizOpps calling for “chaperones” for these children indicate that the government knew the in flux was coming and

(2) it is highly unlikely that the Mexican government would have their southern border be invaded by Central Americans. What happened here? Did the kids explain that they were on their way to America? How and why did Mexican officials believe this? Contrary to what they demand from the US, their southern border is not porous.

Sheriff refuses to disclose names of firearms permit holders, finds community support


Sheriff Carl Nace is defending himself against a lawsuit by county auditors seeking personal information about concealed carry holders within his jurisdiction of Perry County, Pennsylvania.

State law holds that all information for a license to carry a firearm is confidential and free from public release.

The county auditors, however, maintain they are exempt from this, and they want the names and addresses of local permit holders to crosscheck and verify permits issued and money paid with the individual to whom the records indicate the permit was issued.

Kurdish Soldiers: ISIS Close to Surrounding Baghdad


While Iraqi government officials continue to claim that they are making advances in defeating the jihadist group Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), Kurdish forces on the ground report that ISIS has begun to slowly isolate Baghdad, targeting cities in the Sunni north as well as Shi'ite south.

An extensive McClatchy report quotes several Kurdish military leaders who are significantly concerned that Baghdad could fall to ISIS. At least two critical towns that hold a supply route to Baghdad have been captured, they reported, and ISIS appeared to be traveling south to capture routes on the other side of the capital.

Jabbar Yawar, the spokesman for the Kurdish peshmerga militia, told McClatchy that ISIS was reportedly six miles from Baghdad at times. “This area controls access to southern Iraq, and it appears as if they might try to push into Baghdad or even south towards the city of Hilla,” he stated.

ISIS moving south of Baghdad is significant because of strongholds they already possess in Anbar province, to the west, and their initiatives to control the north. They have also been moving ISIS jihadists east to attempt to cut off the remaining roads to the city.

Email: VA Doctors Have Nothing To Do At Work

Doctors at the Philadelphia Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Regional Office are sitting around with nothing to do, despite the fact that hundreds of thousands of U.S. veterans continue to wait for medical appointments.

“Urgent! Need work for In-house Physicians,” wrote the Office’s assistant veterans service center manager Ameen Khabir in the subject line of a June 19 email to colleagues, which he placed on “High” importance. The Regional Office is responsible for processing compensation, benefits, employment and insurance claims. More than 276,000 veteran benefit claims across the country are still backlogged, having been waiting for more than 125 days. Wait times in Philadelphia reached 309 days in March of this year.

So what was the problem in Philadelphia? As of 1:41 p.m., the Office’s in-house doctors just had nothing to do. Here’s the email, obtained by The Daily Caller:

Feds Threatening ‘Third Wounded Knee’ with Eminent Domain Land Grab on Sioux Indian Reservation

Via Susan

In the wake of a Bundy Ranch crisis sparked by a militarized federal land-grab effort in Nevada, it seems that the Department of Interior has set its sights on a new prize - this time targeting once protected Indian reservation land on Pine Ridge in South Dakota.

 The Oglala Sioux and Lakota Sioux of the reservation have been told by the Federal Government that the National Parks Service will be taking land that comprises the South Unit of the Badlands National Park as a new ‘Tribal National Park’, only the wording in the bill clearly indicates that it will be a federally managed national park under the Department of Interior, giving mere lip service to its tribal title. The Congressional bill has already been written, and if passed through Congress, both tribal members and non tribal members will be stripped of their deeded land – at a price set by the federal government. If owners do not accept Washington’s offer (expected to be a meager one), the land can be acquired at no cost because the measure has waived all appraisal rights and stipulates that Washington can simply take Indian land by force under ‘eminent domain’.

Iraq: Syria and Jordan Drawn Into The Fold as US Readies for Action

Via Billy


While the United States has been pondering whether or not to take military action in Iraq, other actors such as Bashar al-Assad’s Syria are replacing the opening in the power vacuum created by the ongoing sectarian bloodshed. Syrian fighter jets bombed ISIS targets inside of Iraq Tuesday, revealing physical evidence that it will stay friendly to its fellow Shiites in the Middle East under Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki.

Separately, Jordan is on high alert after ISIS reportedly took over a Jordanian-Iraqi border crossing.

In response, “The General Command of the Armed Forces of Jordan has decided to strengthen its military forces on Jordan’s border with Iraq in an unprecedented manner” and that “the military buildup consisted of rocket launchers, armored personnel carriers and tanks,” said a senior Jordanian military official. He added, “The Jordanian army is not afraid of any party that is considering compromising or tampering with the security of the country.”

Sources said 228 Iraqis, including Brigadier General Ali-al-Asadi, fled into Jordan as the ISIS militants overtook the border crossing.

Anti-Gun Columnist Asks If It’s Time for the Government to Kill “Gun Nuts”

Via avordvet

Here is an excerpt from a column by Susie Madrak over at,
But Perlstein doesn’t mention the big honkin’ elephant in the room: Namely, at what point does the federal government literally go to war with its own citizens? Because we’re not talking about bank robbers here, we’re talking about (mostly) non-criminal cranks — scofflaws and political malcontents. So what line has to be crossed in the good old U.S. of A. before we start mowing them down to make our point? Because you can’t talk about the Bundy ranch without talking about Ruby Ridge, and Waco.
So here’s the political corner into which we’ve painted ourselves.
Do we have the ATF and BLM agents roll up in armored tanks? Do we use drone strikes? I can see the administration’s reluctance to have that confrontation — after all, it’s not as if gun control advocates were flooding the White House switchboard, screaming to ‘take them out!’ And then we do have the militia types all over the country, just waiting for an excuse to start their own local uprising. These assholes want a civil war so bad, they can taste it.

United Nations Seeks US-based Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Specialists

Via avordvet


It’s no secret that the United Nations, with assistance from members of the Executive and Legislative branches in the United States, has been actively working to reduce Americans’ accessibility to firearms. In 2012 President Obama, along with then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, spearheaded a backdoor move that would have imposed gun control on the United States through foreign means by signing a global disarmament initiative known as the Small Arms Treaty. Though that attempt failed, mass shooting incidents at Sandy Hook and elsewhere have kept the pressure on gun owners with the President having made repeated suggestions that he would mandate gun restrictions through Executive Order should state and federal legislatures fail to act.

Given the rocky history between America’s gun owners and the United Nations, chances are that the push for disarmament will continue with more ferver than ever before. In fact, a recent job posting at the United Nations website suggests that the organization is not only working to get guns out of the hands of American citizens, they are actively preparing personnel to assist in what they call “disarmament, demobilization and reintegration” activities. And if that’s not bad enough, the duty station for this key U.N. Peacekeeping Operations department is New York city, suggesting that the organization believes such operations may be commencing in the United States at some point in the future.

Knife-Wielding Man Attempts to Rob Former Secret Service Agent, with Predictable Results*368/secret+service+agent+picture+woman+shoots+robber.jpg

While we love the idea of a good super-villain in the movies, the fact of the matter is that vast majority of criminals are simply paste-eating morons.


One of the more recent examples of this phenomenon is the aging Philadelphia thug who thought it might be a good idea to rob a nutrition supplement  store—the kind that caters to weightlifters and other athletes—with a knife.

That was his first mistake.

WH Counsel Can’t Name One Person She Worked With During 6-Month Stint at IRS

During Chaffetz’s exchange, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) interrupted: “Mr. Chairman, I think you may be unfair to the witness. The fact is that last night, the commissioner could not remember 60 days ago who told him about the importance of losing those documents.
“Last night, he could not narrow less than 60 days ago within 30 days when he was told. I think that in fact the ability to remember at the IRS is simply limited,” Issa concluded. :)

White House attorney Jennifer O’Connor testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Tuesday that she couldn’t recall who she worked with during her six months at the IRS.

Before working for the Office of White House Counsel, O’Connor worked for the IRS from May 2013 to November 2013 to help the agency deal with the IRS scandal.

Besides naming acting IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel, IRS Chief Counsel William Wilkins, and IRS Deputy Chief Counsel of Operations Chris Sterner – whom she reported to – O’Connor could not name one person she interacted with or specifically reported to her during her tenure at the IRS.

“Anybody in the IT arena?” Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) asked O’Connor.

Top Cold War defector explains devious reason for mass immigration

Virtually all of the 1,087 comments on a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed titled “Immigration Reform Can’t Wait,” by Rupert Murdoch, who owns that prestigious newspaper, disagreed with the article’s call for an immediate “path to citizenship” for our millions of illegal immigrants.

This disagreement is historically significant: America is beginning to see through the thick veil of disinformation designed to conceal the secret intelligence weapon of mass immigration under a mask of humanitarianism.

“This is not a humanitarian crisis,” stated the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers. “It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans.” Two congressmen avowed that the flooding of America’s Southern borders with illegal-alien children might derive from a secret strategy to transform the U.S. into a socialist state.

Do not take me wrong. I am a conservative who appreciates Fox News, I have often been published in the Wall Street Journal, and I am myself an immigrant – in fact, I paid with two death sentences (from my native Romania) for the privilege of becoming a citizen of this great country.

Democrats Want Taxpayers To Pay Illegal Aliens Legal Bills

Via Cousin John

As a flood of illegal immigrants, many of them unaccompanied minors, continues to flow across the southern U.S. border, the Barack Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats are proffering plans to protect the undocumented newcomers at taxpayer expense.

According to multiple reports, the Obama Administration has ordered border security agencies to stand down and allow the illegal immigrants to make their way into the U.S. interior.
The Associated Press reports:
Most of the immigrant families are from Honduras, El Salvador or Guatemala and cannot be immediately repatriated, so the government has been releasing them into the U.S. interior and telling them to report within 15 days to the nearest U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement offices. Despite promises for better transparency on immigration issues, the administration has been unwilling to say how many immigrant families it’s released — hundreds or thousands — or how many of those subsequently reported back to the government after 15 days as directed.

Woman Says DHS Forced Her to Strip Naked at Gunpoint During Terrifying Dawn Raid

Kari Edwards said she and her boyfriend were forced to strip naked at gunpoint during a terrifying Department of Homeland Security dawn raid on their Florida home which lasted for two hours.

The incident began on June 10 at 6:16am when numerous armed SWAT team members, accompanied by a helicopter overhead, arrived in an armored vehicle at the couple’s address before smashing in the door and deafening their pet cat with flash bang smoke grenades.

“They busted in like I was a terrorist or something,” Edwards told the Tea Party News Network, adding, “[An officer] demanded that I drop the towel I was covering my naked body with before snatching it off me physically and throwing me to the ground.”
