Rapper Shot Repeatedly in Grocery Store By Another Rapper Thug While Filming Rap Video

Typically, art imitates life. But, with Rap music, the opposite is true... life imitates art, and oftentimes, with dire consequences. 

Recently released video from a Bronx bodega, where two aspiring rappers where filming a no-budget video, shows one rapper pumping multiple, close range shots into his rap partner, then pistol-whipping him as he laid on the floor in critical condition — all without spilling his drink.

France offers Iraq Christians asylum after Mosul threat

 Iraqi Christian refugees receive aid in Hamdaniya, east of Mosul, 20 July 14

The French government says it is ready to offer asylum to Iraqi Christians forced to flee by Islamist militants in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

Many fled Mosul after the Islamic State (IS) group which seized much of northern Iraq told them to convert to Islam, pay a tax or face death.

Iraq is home to one of the world's most ancient Christian communities.

Two top ministers said, "We are ready, if they so desire, to help facilitate asylum on our territory."

IRS Abolishes Mandatory Expiration Dates For Illegal Immigrants’ Taxpayer Status

Via avordvet

 Texas Rep. Sam Johnson

“On the screen, I’ve got figure 6 from the 2012 IG report showing most frequently used addresses for ITIN tax refunds. As you can see, nearly 24,000 tax refunds totaling $46.4 million were issued to the same address in Atlanta,” Johnson said. “Bottom-line these ITINs are costing taxpayers dearly because they can be used to fraudulently get tax refunds…Look at figure 3 on the screen. Over 1,000 ITINs were assigned to individuals using the same address in Atlanta. You agree that there’s still a problem?”


The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) quietly changed regulations to allow more undocumented immigrants to keep their taxpayer status through a program that is rife with fraud and abuse, and to delay deactivation of immigrant taxpayer status until 2016.

The IRS now prevents peoples’ Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) from automatically expiring after five years as previously mandated. Now immigrants can keep their ITIN so long as they pay taxes at least once in a five-year period. (RELATED: IRS Loophole For Illegals’ Children Costs Taxpayers Billions

Brigadier General Viet Luong, 1st Cavalry Division deputy commanding general for maneuver promotion ceremony

As Viet Luong's wife pinned the star on his chest Wednesday morning to promote him to the rank of brigadier general, history was made.

Born in Vietnam and brought to America during the 1975 fall of Saigon, Luong is the first Vietnamese-American to make general officer in the United States Army.

"The journey was arduous," said Luong, deputy commander for maneuver for 1st Cavalry Division, standing at the podium at Cooper Field.

At age 10, Luong's father, a Vietnamese marine, got their family of 10 onto a flight during Operation Frequent Wind and into a refugee camp in Arkansas. The family then settled in Los Angeles.

Revolutionizing Citizenship of the United States

Faced with the defeated South poised to regain voting rights and seats in Congress, the Republican party desperately needed dependable voters and it created a new category of black citizenship to attain this.  Armed with a newly enacted law, the terrorist wing of the party, the Union League, was unleashed on the South with instructions to enlist freedmen and intimidate white voters from the polls.

Revolutionizing Citizenship of the United States

“ . . . [T]he provision of the [Civil Rights] bill [of 1866] appeared out of all relation to our constitutional system. Never before had Congress been known to arrogate to itself the power to regulate the civil status of the inhabitants of a State . . . , [the jurisdiction of disputes relating to contracts and property and even criminal actions, and it] seemed like a complete revelation of that diabolical spirit of centralization, of which only the cloven hoof had been manifested heretofore.

In addition to the definition of “slavery” and “involuntary servitude,” the Civil Rights Bill undertook to fix the precise meaning of the phrase “citizen of the United States.” For general practical purposes, exact determination of the scope of citizenship had not been found necessary [previous to the War].
Where any opinion at all had been pronounced, it had in most cases been in relation to the status of free Negroes. 

The weight of authority on this point was adverse to the claim of citizenship for the blacks.  “No person,” said Attorney-General [William] Wirt in 1821, “is included in the description of citizen of the United States, who has not the full rights of a citizen in the State of his residence.”

This principle had been in general the basis of the government’s practice in all the departments. For native-born persons living within a State, citizenship of the State was the prerequisite for citizenship of the United States; for persons of foreign birth, naturalization alone was necessary. The Dred Scott decision limited this rule by determining that State citizens of African descent could not be citizens of the United States. 

During the war, however, the old view was entirely overthrown in practice.  Mr. Lincoln’s attorney-general argued away all the precedents, and gave it as his official opinion that a free Negro, born within the United States, was ipso facto a citizen thereof.  He assumed nativity as the broad basis of citizenship . . . [and] With that assumption the status of United States citizenship was placed entirely beyond the reach of any State influence whatever, and a purely national conception was attained.

To justify this sweeping enactment, the special conception of citizenship which the history of our institutions had developed was discarded, and the broad principle of public law was adopted in its place.  All [Northern] authorities agreed that the status of citizen implied the reciprocal duties of allegiance and protection.  A citizen of the United States, then, was entitled to the protection of that government to which allegiance was owed. But this protection was to operate against all sources of oppression, and if a State government happened to come in this category, it too must succumb.”

A Man Was Saved From A Bear Attack By His Justin Bieber Ringtone

 Screen Shot 2014-08-06 at 10.52.45 AM

Justin Bieber may need bodyguards to save him from Orlando Bloom but the peach-lipped douche needs no help when it comes to handling bears.

Russian Igor Vorozhbitsyn was en route to his favorite fishing spot when he was savagely attacked by a brown bear.  The 42-year-old told Central European News, “I had parked my car and was walking towards the spot I’d marked out when there was a tremendous impact on my back and the bear was on top of me.”

Luckily, Vorozhbitsyn was saved from certain death when his phone cranked out Justin Bieber caterwauling his song “Baby.”  At hearing the falsetto pre-pubescent mating cry the bear hightailed it into the woods.

“I couldn’t believe my luck when the phone went off and he fled,” Vorozhbitsyn said. “I know that sort of ringtone isn’t to everyone’s taste, but my granddaughter loaded it onto my phone for a joke.”

Female Campus Carry Advocate and Dartmouth Student Details Stalking: "They Found a Rape Kit in His Car"

Of course, the college turned her down.

Yesterday Students for Concealed Carry held their annual conference in Washington D.C. One of the panels during the conference featured women who have been stalked unrelentingly by violent and dangerous men.

One of those panelists was Dartmouth Student Taylor Woolrich, who detailed her long battle against a man who began stalking her after she served him a cup of coffee at a shop she worked in. The man was 40 years older than her and wouldn't leave her alone.

"Eventually it all came to a climax when he attacked, well attempted to attack my then boyfriend in high school when I was 17-years-old and told him he should never speak to me again and threw hot coffee in his face. I got an emergency restraining order.

"Luhansk faces a siege like that of Leningrad in WWII"



The steadily advancing Ukrainian army is setting its sights on the largest rebel-held city in eastern Ukraine, while Western officials on Wednesday warned that a Russian military buildup on Ukraine's border could herald a major incursion to protect the separatists.

President Vladimir Putin has resisted mounting pressure from Russian nationalists to send the army in to back the mutiny in eastern Ukraine. Even though the U.S. and NATO would be unlikely to respond militarily, the West would be certain to impose major sanctions that would put the shaky Russian economy on its knees — and could quickly erode Putin's power.

Russia already is showing signs of economic dismay from sanctions imposed earlier this year, but Putin on Wednesday showed Moscow aims to fight back, calling on government agencies to develop a list of agricultural imports from sanctions-imposing countries that could be banned for up to a year.

"When you see the buildup of Russian troops and the sophistication of those troops, the training of those troops, the heavy military equipment that's being put along that border, of course it's a reality.

It's a threat, it's a possibility — absolutely," U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday.

U.S. and NATO officials say there are now about 20,000 Russian troops massed just east of Ukraine.

Bundy Ranch August 6, 2014

Via John 
I offer warning to you and other government personnel that lead or follow your example. The people are in unrest because of these types of egregious actions.

To Sheriff Doug Gillespie, Clark County Nevada Sheriff's Department,

In a recent press conference, you mentioned 1) the BLM lied to you and 2) Bundy brought armed men to the ranch for protection.

While I can't speak to the validity of your first claim, we unequivocally take issue with the second. We never asked for armed men to come to our aid. In fact, everyone who arrived at the Bundy ranch (men, women, armed & unarmed) voluntarily came to support the constitutional rights that you failed to defend. Had you not neglected your duty to defend our rights, the rights of the very people for whom you swore a solemn oath to defend, there never would have been a standoff in the first place.

So while you chastise my family and pontificate about how, "Bundy should be held accountable for crossing the line", let it be known that the responsibility for this escalation rests primarily at the doorstep of the Clark County Sheriff's office.

Please allow me a moment to remind you of some of the history leading up to that day:

Hundreds of militarized agents invaded our community and terrorized us.

 They seized the land by gunpoint, claiming it as their own.

 They not only threatened, but actually inflicted bodily harm on anyone who stepped onto the land. Remind you, this land was cared for, cultivated, and improved upon by my family and the community for many generations.

 A 57 year old cancer surviving woman was body slammed by a federal agent, for doing nothing more than exercising her first amendment rights.

 As we sat in the sniper's cross-hairs, federal agents shoved M-16 rifles into the faces of our wives who were holding our infant children.

 Dave was, kicked, beaten, battered, loaded into a federal truck and taken to the BLM compound to become the BLM trophy. They paraded him around in the sun, cruelly ridiculing him for hours, tightly bound (without water). After they had their fun with him, they dumped him out on the road and covered up any legal proof that they even took him.

These are just a few of the atrocities that were inflicted upon my family and the community - who was peacefully protesting. The only thing we pointed at those agents, were cameras to capture their atrocities for the world to see. In return, they released dogs on us, they tased us, they beat us, and they abused us in order to intimidate us.

When our first amendment rights were stripped down to a 20'x50' box, you did nothing. When armed men trampled my brother, beat him, and nearly took his life, you refused to protect. When women, infants, and children were held captive at gunpoint by angry and violent men, our cries for help fell on deaf ears.

When men and women literally wounded and bleeding were in need of emergency assistance, because you allowed these heavy hands to afflict us, you then refused the emergency medical services to be dispatched for our care.

When we called, you said, "there wasn't anything you could do".  You said, "this fight was between the Bundys and the BLM". However, you commanded your deputies to stand by while their own families and community members were being inflicted upon and threatened with lethal weapons.

Sheriff, your response demonstrates that you have a fundamental misunderstanding of your place in our government. You have more authority and responsibility than any federal agency, and yet you cowardly forced the people to defend themselves.

Evidence in your power and responsibility was never more apparent than at the standoff.  When your deputies told the federal agents to back down - the federal agents backed down. They backed down because your deputies who had constitutional and jurisdictional authority from the people, finally did what the people hired you and them to do, and insisted that these federal agents stop their abuses.

In the end, your deputies did the right thing, but, Sheriff, you should have never let it come to this. While the BLM was willing to shoot my family over land and power, we were willing to die for our families, our livelihoods, and our constitutional rights. You should have been defending these rights for us. That's what we elected you to do.

Thankfully, the American people came to our defense. They came to our defense because you failed to do your duty. For that, you should be grieved and held accountable.

I offer warning to you and other government personnel that lead or follow your example. The people are in unrest because of these types of egregious actions. The purpose of government is to protect and uphold the unalienable rights of the people, not to infringe upon them. It is our duty and obligation to defend our God-given rights if our government representatives fail to do so, or tries to discard them. We, as citizens, desire to live in peace and tranquility, but will defend our freedoms if necessary, in order to do so. I call upon you, Sheriff Gillespie, and all civil servants, to honorably effectuate the true purpose of government, to uphold the oaths and duties of your sworn offices - to truly be representative of the people, by the people, and for the people.

I leave you with the wisdom of Thomas Jefferson:

"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."

McCrory demands details from feds on immigrant children

Via Michael

 FILE - In this June 18, 2014, file photo, detainees sleep in a holding cell at a U.S. Customs and Border Protection processing facility in Brownsville,Texas. For nearly two months, images of immigrant children who have crossed the border without a parent, only to wind up in concrete holding cells once in United States, have tugged at heartstrings. Yet most Americans now say U.S. law should be changed so they can be sent home quickly, without a deportation hearing. A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds two-thirds of Americans now say illegal immigration is a serious problem for the country, up 14 points since May and on par with concern about the issue in May 2010, when Arizona's passage of a strict anti-immigration measure brought the issue to national prominence. (AP Photo/Eric Gay, Pool)

Gov. Pat McCrory said Tuesday that state officials have been kept in the dark about the immigrant children being placed in North Carolina, and he demanded more information – and work toward a solution – from federal officials.

Close to 1,200 children who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border during the first six months of this year have been placed with sponsors – many times relatives – in North Carolina, and the governor said he expects that number to increase "fairly dramatically" when July numbers come in. Already, the state has seen twice the number of immigrant children as it does in an average year, he said.

Murder in Rio Grande Valley: 'This Is Coming to a Town Near You'
 JAVIER VEGA JR and father

The voice on the other end of the line is exasperated. "It's insane," he wants America to know. "We're in a war zone." And there's no room for apathy.

"This is coming to a town near you," he warns.

The man on the phone is a veteran of the Department of Homeland Security who works in South Texas. He reached out to me last night in the wake of an off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent's horrific murder on Friday. The 36-year-old agent, Javier Vega Jr., was shot execution-style in front of his wife, his parents, two of his sons and another child in the Rio Grande Valley. Vega's father was also shot but survived. They were on an idyllic family fishing trip before being robbed and ambushed.

The two suspects are Mexican nationals from Matamoros. "They're here illegally," my source said with a weary sigh. And not just that. They had been previously deported after committing other serious crimes, he says. "But we just drop the thugs off at the border, and they come right back."

"........four helicopter gunships and twenty Black Hawks of troops arriving over Washington from Quantico would do it."

Unstable countries are unstable, this not always being obvious in those countries, and then comes a man on a horse. The United States, methinks, is not particularly stable.

That anything seismic might happen is an idea doubtless inconceivable to most Americans, who still remember the America of Reader’s Digest, but is daily less improbable. Weimar America is not stable. The cracks in the foundations, the social crumbling and virulent antipathies grow daily more evident.

The economy declines, jobs leave for other climes, the petroyuan looms, college graduates crushed by debt find no work, the middle class shrinks, and the young begin to live perforce with their parents. Times of diminishing expectations are dangerous.

City after city joins the ranks of the bankrupt, semiliterate, corrupt black Bantustans which by honest naming would be called Lower Third World. Their culture is utterly alien to that of Eurowhites.

Across the open border to the south pour huge waves from the Latino slums, less alien to Eurowhites, less hostile, but nonetheless threatening to form yet another country within a country. The Third World proportion of America closes rapidly on a full third. Despite desperate attempts to impose multicultural harmony, experience shows that widely disparate peoples who do not like each other do not enjoy happy endings.

“Never in the civilised world have so many been locked up for so little.”—“Rough Justice in America,” The Economist

Why are we seeing such an uptick in Americans being arrested for such absurd “violations” as letting their kids play at a park unsupervised, collecting rainwater and snow runoff on their own property, growing vegetables in their yard, and holding Bible studies in their living room?

Mind you, we’re not talking tickets or fines or even warnings being issued to these so-called “lawbreakers.” We’re talking felony charges, handcuffs, police cars, mug shots, pat downs, jail cells and criminal records.

WSJ/NBC Poll: 79% dissatisfied with Obama and the American political system


"The American public is telling its elected representatives that the economic distress that a significant proportion of them are feeling is directly their fault," Democratic pollster Fred Yang of Hart Research told the Journal. He conducted the poll with Republican Bill McInturff.

"The public seems to have moved beyond the plaintive cry of 'feel our pain' to the more angry pronouncement of 'you are causing our pain,' " Yang added.

That pain has translated into strong feelings among the 1,000 adults polled that their children will not have a better life that they do, that the country is on the wrong track, that America is in a state of decline, that the country is still in recession — and that the nation's economy is not stronger because of unprecedented partisan gridlock in Washington.

NC: Tarboro requests state audit town

Via Cousin John

A troubling tip led to further scrutiny which eventually ended in a state investigation that exposed reported misappropriations of more than $500,000 of taxpayers’ money in the Town of Tarboro.

While it was Tarboro Town Council that officially requested North Carolina State Auditor Beth Wood to investigate the purchasing and expenses practices of former town manager Sam Noble, it was current town manager Alan Thornton who approached council with the matter.

“Certain things were brought to my attention a couple of years ago,” said Thornton, who became town manager after Noble retired in June 2011. “I looked into those things. After looking into it and doing some checking, I didn’t have a good comfort level with what was discovered.

“I took the information to council, and council decided to have the state auditor look into it.”

Wood’s report, which was released to the public on July 22, revealed that between 2006 and 2011, Noble made purchases, received reimbursements and charged travel expenses to the town that were “unnecessary” in the performance of his duties.
