Ayoob Misrepresents "Why We Carry Guns"

Ayoob at Backwoods Home writes about an elderly couple who were brutally murdered in their home.

Just like this couple-- Jose Guerena was in his home when he was attacked and brutally murdered by violent killers.


The training, and organization, and decision to target and then to kill Jose Guerena was deliberate at each step in the process. The trigger pullers committed murder, as did those who sent them (prosecutor, judge, sheriff). Those who continue to enable them share the blame (prosecutors, judges, state and federal jurisdictions). And that includes those who excuse this and/or support their training, tactics, and deeds, like Mr Ayoob here. "Enforcers uber alles"?

When laws no longer apply, then there is no law, except what corruptocrats want to make up, an 'insiders mafia'. None of the 'perps' in this gang are charged with crimes since there is no law, only 'connections' and 'raw force' in this crime wave of organized theft and violence.

Daily links to injustice can be found here.

The point is not that these thing happen- THE POINT IS THAT THE VIOLENCE IS PREMEDITATED, TRAINED, AND ENABLED. When responsible people draw attention to it and try to point out that such violence and cover-up undermines law and order; then rather then focusing on the data and the problem - -
- some choose to resort to name calling and ad hominem attacks, like Mr Ayoob here and here.
They do this because the data is overwhelming and damning, so they avoid reason while defending the horrific. Notice people bringing data to the discussion, while Mas and Buddies resort to 'name calling' and 'changing the argument' games. Avoiding the substance of arguments reveals the weakness of their position. By refusing to take action to put an end to 'enforcers gone wild', they enable more of the same.

If there was a single 'oathkeeper' that had jurisdiction in such 'enforcer' violence, A SINGLE ONE, then laws would apply, and the concept of law would be preserved. But tribal loyalty is more important than the law, or the unalienable rights of their victims. By continued enabling of such premeditated organized crimes, these perps and their enablers destroy what used to be our system of government. They make themselves repugnant to the concept of law. They make themselves the 'domestic enemies' Matt Bracken writes about.

Q: "Why we carry guns"?
A: Because Tories behaved just like this, abusing the people, and we made them leave.

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that justifies it.”
- Frederic Bastiat

“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.”
- George Washington

 “When law and morality contradict each other, the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense or losing his respect for the law.”
- Frederic Bastiat

“Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience.”
- John Locke

It's what we explained to the Tories and their mercenary army of enforcers.
That's "why we carry guns".

Herman Cain and the Fed

Herman Cain supported TARP and has a cozy relationship with the Federal Reserve. He is a bankster-statist. A "rat bastard Hamiltonian".

Cain support for TARP; info here and here and here

Cain served as deputy chairman of the board of directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City from 1992 to 1994, and as chairman from 1995 to 1996; info here and here and here

Cain a Statist; info here and here and here and here

Herman Cain shares many ideas with that rat bastard Hamilton; more info here and here and here

from wikipedia
Hamilton was a nationalist who emphasized strong central government and successfully argued that the implied powers of the Constitution could be used to fund the national debt, assume state debts, and create the government-owned Bank of the United States.
Herman is from the FED, and his central planners are here to help you.

Geheimstaatspolizei in Tennesee: "Terrorists on the Interstate"

Amendment IV 
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

NewsChannel 5 report by Adam Ghassemi:
PORTLAND, Tenn. -- You're probably use to seeing TSA's signature blue uniforms at the airport, but now agents are hitting the interstates to fight terrorism with Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR).

"Where is a terrorist more apt to be found? Not these days on an airplane more likely on the interstate," said Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons.

Tuesday Tennessee was first to deploy VIPR simultaneously at five weigh stations and two bus stations across the state.

Agents are recruiting truck drivers, like Rudy Gonzales, into the First Observer Highway Security Program to say something if they see something.

"Not only truck drivers, but cars, everybody should be aware of what's going on, on the road," said Gonzales.

It's all meant to urge every driver to call authorities if they see something suspicious.

"Somebody sees something somewhere and we want them to be responsible citizens, report that and let us work it through our processes to abet the concern that they had when they saw something suspicious," said Paul Armes, TSA Federal Security Director for Nashville International Airport.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol checked trucks with drug and bomb sniffing dogs during random inspections.

"The bottom line is this: if you see something suspicious say something about it," Gibbons said Tuesday.

The random inspections really aren't any more thorough normal, according to Tennessee Highway Patrol Colonel Tracy Trott who says paying attention to details can make a difference. Trott pointed out it was an Oklahoma state trooper who stopped Timothy McVay for not having a license plate after the Oklahoma City bombing in the early 1990s.

Tuesday's statewide "VIPR" operation isn't in response to any particular threat, according to officials.

Armes said intelligence indicates law enforcement should focus on the highways as well as the airports.

Domestic Enemies of the Constitution.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

CNN Captures 'Tea Party'

The 'Communist News Network' has been on a jihad demonizing the 'Tea Party'.
Now CNN is working to help select the 'Tea Party' candidate.
And why pick a candidate based on a 'beauty queen' format? It's an artificial scenario, not related to running the country. 

Wolf is driving a wedge to discredit every candidate and turn one against the other. Audience questions are "Wolf-Morphed" into whatever Wolf wants to discuss- Because he's the voice of the 'Tea Party', apparently.

Silly that the left picks their candidate, and sheep let them do it.

Fundamental Change, As Promised

(unattributable image: variously posted in numerous places, all unattributed.)

Just hold still a little longer, so they can destroy the last few vestiges of our civilization, sell off the last few assets, and steal the last few crumbs from the pension funds. This thing will take generations to bootstrap back up, but the miseducated masses no longer know their own history or culture...

Change you can believe in.

You Maniacs! You blew it up! God Damn you! God damn you all to hell!

Gop re-enables Dem insanity of even more credit.

No one has put it more succinctly than Ann Barnhardt at American Thinker:
h/t WRSA
Back to the $2 Trillion that Obama is being handed. I honestly think that most people in this country have no understanding of simple counting numbers. Do you not understand how much a trillion is? Where do you think this money is going to come from -- who has two trillion dollars to loan us? China? Nope. Not even close. China's entire GDP is only $6 Trillion. Do you honestly think that China is going to loan us one third of their total annual economic production? China was a huge creditor to us back when $100 Billion was considered a staggeringly large amount of money - which was four years ago. Now $100 Billion is literally a rounding error. Do you realize that there are only a handful of nations of this planet that even have a GDP in excess of $2 Trillion? If these countries loaned us every penny of their GDP, it wouldn't even be $2 Trillion:

Canada ($1.57 T)
India ($1.54 T)
Russia ($1.46 T)

Are you starting to understand the scope of what we are talking about now? Obama is going to embezzle considerably more than the entire economic output of Canada, India or Russia to his cronies before the 2012 election -- and that is just counting this round of spending. This doesn't include the other $5 Trillion he has already burned through since 2009.

Obama is the enemy. Obama is a Marxist-Communist usurper and puppet front for a cabal of Marxist-Communists who are actively trying to destroy the United States of America. Everything they have done, are doing, and will do has the single goal of collapsing and destroying the U.S. economy, military, constitutional government and culture. What part of "Marxist Revolution" do you not understand?

The Obama regime is not a failure. The Obama regime is not incompetent. The Obama regime has achieved more in two and a half years than anyone could have possibly foreseen. It has debased the currency by 50% of the GDP and guaranteed that our economy will collapse. It has looted the Treasury for more than the size of a top-ten economy and embezzled that wealth into the hands of their fellow Marxists in preparation for the final collapse of the United States. It has ground the economy of the United States to a screeching halt. It has destabilized the entire Muslim world and ensured that there will be a nuclear war centered around Israel within the decade.

The Obama regime has no interest whatsoever in "stimulus" or "getting folks back to work." How can you not understand this? How can we possibly win this war if we refuse to come to terms with the fact that we are in fact fighting a war.
(read the whole thing)

Phoenix Capital Research, via Ol'Remus, via ZeroHedge, summed it up this way:
The monetary interventions, bailouts, and stimulus plans implemented between 2007-2009 were unprecedented. In just three years we spent more money than WWI, WWII, and the New Deal combined... Please note, they DID NOT pay off the debt or let the entities default (solutions that would have SOLVED the problem)...
We are living in historic times: A marxist coup as everyone stood watching, and wondering if anyone was going to do anything to stop them.

Quotes: Which community organizer said these?
"All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state."

"The truth is that men are tired of liberty."

"It is the State which educates its citizens in civic virtue, gives them a consciousness of their mission and welds them into unity."

"_____ should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power."

"The keystone of the ______ doctrine is its conception of the State, of its essence, its functions, and its aims. For _____ the State is absolute, individuals and groups relative."

Each one is a Benito Mussolini quote, where he is explaining a thing he called 'facism', to differentiate it from a different things called 'communism' and 'socialism'. Fill in the blanks with 'facism'.

Benito was a community organizer, and became known for his infamous pose. Same pose as Barry Baraq Mohammad Hussein Sotero Obama.

Which is the more accurate technical description of the Sotero "change": communism, facism, socialism, Obamao-ism, what?

Creating a Standing Army in our Midst, to Dominate the Citizenry

h/t Zero Hedge

Military Training Exercises to Take Place In and Around Boston
For Immediate Release
July 25, 2011
Released By: Mayor's Office
For More Information Contact: Mayor's Press Office

Joint federal military training exercises will take place within and around the Boston area between July 26th and August 5th. Military personnel will conduct training exercises to ensure the military's ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirements. Helicopters will be used in some exercises.

The Boston Police Department is working with military personnel to coordinate training sites that will minimize negative impacts on our Boston citizens and their daily routines. Safety precautions have been taken to prevent risk to the general public and the military personnel involved. With that, training site locations are not open to the public and will be guarded by uniformed personnel to provide additional safety.

Does that ring a bell? Here are some thoughts from The Declaration of Independence
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent
More lines crossed. More bounds overstepped.

Are you a Communist, or a Citizen?

Here's an interesting 9 minute video; an archaeoligical artifact from a mere 50 years ago...
"We are living in an era marked by the growth of socialism."

"... the presence in America of socialists and communist propogandists, dedicated to the establishment of a new order. The communist 5th columnists among us are working for a world dictatorship. To accomplish this, their strategy is to undermine the confidence of our people in the American system and the principles on which it stands. The socialists among us seek to bring about a gradual chang in our system, by gradually destroying the principle of private ownership of property, and substituting the socialist principle of government ownership."

"But let's put the full challenge in a few words: The world is caught in an era of socialist expansion. Most of the nations are effected. And America is a target. In fact, the number one target of both the socialists and the communists. If we permit our great system to crumble through the apathy of our citizenship, we shall lose not only our our freedom but our prosperity ..."

What are our "Obligations of Citizenship"?
1. Understand the American way of life and what makes it tick.
2. Understand communism and their tactics.
3. Understand socialism and it's disguises.
4. Understand propoganda techniques of communism / socialism.
5. Take interest in public schools and colleges, and what is taught.
6. Take interest in local and state government.
7. Strive for spiritual growth.
8. Dedicate a part of your everyday life to citizenship.
"... in our republic, authority is surrounded by an ingenious system of checks and balances that prevents autocratic or dictatorial rule- That is, if we maintain the Constitution as our basic law."
Imagine where we'll be in another 50 years.

Rick Perry is a Trojan Horse of Statism cloaked in Tea Party rhetoric and Bible Buzzwords

Wondering about GOP collaborators? Here's a summary description of another one.

Claire Wolf: Question of the Century Nominee

Claire asks a question, here:

One of the hardest things about living in a police state is watching other people be crushed by state power and feeling unable to do a thing about it.

We read Pastor Neimoeller’s famous lines as a warning to ourselves. But really, there’s not much chance of heeding the warning in a way that changes anything — except perhaps for the worse.


We can’t watch others be crushed without feeling a stab of their agony. We know, as others are crushed, that the crushing machinery gathers momentum and will roll toward our own lives. We know that not only we, but the ideals that sustain civilization, are being crushed. And that matters to us. Matters vitally, painfully, heartbreakingly. No matter what else we do, we can’t stand by and watch that happen without feeling an obligation — or at least a passionate longing — to do our all to stop it.


But how? What? And why does it keep rolling on so inexorably when so many are speaking out?


So we come back to the question: What’s the responsibility of a resident of a police state? If mere speaking out doesn’t change anything, what does? And how do we do it?
Read the whole thing. The article captures the dilemma of every moral person, just now. How can we make it stop?

Claire is smarter than most of us. We'll see more of her thoughts in the next installment (part 2+?).

But here is my response, today- We don't have to like it. But we cannot ignore it.
Like being raped while watching others being raped. Something must be done.

“Let me see your papers”, and “Just following orders” were phrases we heard about other countries and other times- Now we see it here.

One thing I have been doing (perhaps stupidly) is engaging local ‘enforcers’ in discussions, and also on-line. I commented several times at Massad Ayoob Backwoods Blog regarding the murder of Jose Guerena- But Mr Ayoob sides with the storm troopers ‘just doing their job’, ‘just following procedure’ as they kill and kidnap citizens. Every suspect must submit or die, in his weltanschau. Anyone who dares question the tactics is no longer viewed as a citizen/his employer, but rather as a “cop hater”. So they create their mental barriers, to allow them to do what they do, to continue to pay their mortgage, to continue to ‘follow orders’.

I now understand how the colonists felt when the Redcoats demanded obedience.

It’s like watching the gate guards at Auschwitz go to work. You talk to them about what they’re doing, and they are so keen on ‘just following orders’ that they have lost sight of civilization.

When reason doesn’t work, when the ballot box and the courts accelerate the tyranny, when tyranny advances if you continue playing by ‘their rules’… Then what? What did the colonists do? They left for a new land.
And when tyranny tried to ensnare them there- What did they do? And where did all the prominent Torries go, during and after the ‘troubles’?

“Sic Semper Tyrannis” is the Virginia State motto.

In the end, tyranny is about raw naked force.
Most of the signers of the Declaration were captured, killed, or bankrupt.
So the bottom line then, is that Liberty is about putting an end to raw naked force of tyranny.

or Death

Avoiding trouble only works if trouble leaves you and your family alone. But tyranny is the thing that does not leave you alone, it demands your subservience. Obey or be punished. Lightbulbs or poisonous mercury. No coal, no oil, no nukes, no jobs. Tax or death. Only the state can decide which businesses are allowed, what media may report, which children get scholarships, which special friends get favors and kickbacks.

Do we let our children be enslaved in debt? Do we let our heritage be robbed from them? Do we let our civilization be consumed by locust? Do we watch and do nothing but type and whine about it? Do we apologize to our children, for what we have enabled through inaction?

Do what you must, because you can do no other.


“So we come back to the question: What’s the responsibility of a resident of a police state? If mere speaking out doesn’t change anything, what does? And how do we do it?”-Claire

We have been here before.

What did the colonists do?
Complain, petition, seek redress- for years, in every way possible. They tried avoidance, and not participating. But tyranny is intrusive, and it damaged all their lives, and ate out their substance.
And then, finally, they defended themselves against the aggressors who demanded obedience.

After many years of widespread conflict and suffering, the Torries were eventually purged, and their storm troopers too. Washington crossed the Delaware to kill one large group of mercenaries in their beds, on Christmas morning, as they slept.

That’s what happens when people start to say no to tyranny: Tyranny masses forces and comes to your village to take you guns, your property, your business, and your children’s future. And at some point- People say no. Some guy stands in front of a tank, or something. Or they gather guns and powder, and then stand on the village green- Just to say “Oh Hell No!”.

Saying “Oh Hell No!” invariably leads to ‘crossing the Delaware’ or ‘crossing the Rubicon’. That’s what comes next, when they won’t stop pushing, and we the people say “Oh Hell No!”.

They won’t stop pushing.
There’s going to be fight.
Let’s win it.
Beans, Bullets, Bandaids, Brains, Balls, Buddies.
PT. Plan contingencies. Read Sun Tzu and your bible. Kiss your children good night when you tuck them in. We’ve been here before.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising them the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence:
from bondage to spiritual faith;
from spiritual faith to great courage;
from courage to liberty;
from liberty to abundance;
from abundance to selfishness;
from selfishness to apathy;
from apathy to dependence;
from dependency back again into bondage.”
-Alexander Tytler, 1770

“But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations…This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.”
- John Adams

“You have Rights antecedent to all earthly governments; Rights that cannot he repealed or restrained by human laws; Rights derived from the Great Legislator of the universe.”

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
- Ronald Reagan

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”

“Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.”

“It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.”
– Voltaire

“If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were ever our countrymen.”
- John Adams

“If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my children may have peace.”
– Thomas Paine

“We are not to expect to be translated from despotism to liberty in a featherbed.”
- Thomas Jefferson

“If you can’t hit them with the first 6 shots, what makes you think the next 6 are gonna be any different ?”
- Jeff Cooper

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst; the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!”
– Alexander Solzhenitsyn


Summary: We don't have to like it. But we cannot ignore it.
Like being raped while watching others being raped. Something must be done.

Raw naked power never yields, willingly. Resistance invariably means crossing the Delaware, eventually, for us or for our children and grandchildren.

“If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my children may have peace.”
– Thomas Paine

Aliquis Esse Stultus

in response to WRSA article here

A while ago, a man from Culpeper Virginia put it this way:
"Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
- Patrick Henry, before the Virginia House of Commons, March 23, 1775

Osama is Dead. Fellow Travellers Continue his Mission.

Muslims attacked the World Trade Center, Twice: Osama spoke about the need to crash the US economy, so the West would be more vulnerable to the jihad, and so US would be less able to interefere with the Jihad.

Osama is Dead. But fellow travellers continue his mission.
Osama had to sneak a few guys onto planes. Meanwhile, a '5th column' has infiltrated education, courts, business, media, and taken over federal/state/local Government and bureacracies. These domestic enemies continue Osama's work, deliberately crashing the and America; economy, finance, law, industry, even liberty itself.

The current regime in DC is supporting AlQueada and Jihad- Strategically re-shaping the facts on the ground in the middle east, and even go so far as to have the US military openly providing air support for Al Queada in Libya. The current regime also supports the jihad in Dearborn, New York, and the rest of America. When it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and supports the jihad like a duck: Then it's a duck.

Fellow travellers with common objectives. Doing the same things for the same reasons.
They want to end you, and your way of life.

update: Osama Obama's military renders full honors to the mental illness they are fighting, bury Bin Laden's body at sea within 24 hours in Keeping With Islamic Tradition! Not even the Saudis would accept bin Laden's body for burial.

update from AP:
Now that he's dead, do we get OUR CONSTITUTION BACK?

Now that he's dead, will our GOVERNMENT STOP MOLESTING OUR CHILDREN, GROPING OUR WIVES, HUMILIATING OUR PEOPLE, and trampling on the Bill of Rights?



Well then, concerning the death of just another jihadi terrorist...I really could care less. It is no victory to kill one man, especially not in a 4GW organization.

bin Laden was a far lesser threat to the American way of life and liberty than is our own government.

The biggest threat is in DC, in unconstitutional searches, in TSA checkpoints, in militarized police. The biggest threat is alive and well. It is not in Pakistan, in Afghanistan, in Libya, Egypt, Syria, or Iraq.

Not "If", But "When"

Years ago, Nova started writing "American Apocalypse" to wrestle with his own feelings of where we're headed, to vent, and to provide some comic relief from the day-to-day headlines. (Comic mythical religions stand in for actual ones, and he still gets blasted for the obvious: religions will play a part in tribal groupings.)

Several years ago, the scenes depicted in the opening book seemed far-off. But now, they are all around us.

Nova is thinking a few years ahead, again, when he asks "What If?"
You live in a semi-rural area. The closest big town is the county seat and is a ghost of what what it was once. The population is 82% white, 10% black, the rest a mix of stranded Latinos and wanders from other countries who have little restaurants and businesses.

The area was hard hit by the first wave of the economic meltdown but life, on the surface, is still good. You know people who are hurting, you can see the empty storefronts from when money flowed, but you think it will all come back. Then the second wave of the meltdown hits. Perhaps triggered by gas prices. Perhaps by the bankruptcy of European states. Perhaps both.

Your area, which was struggling, cuts services to the bone, perhaps deeper. Money gets tight and the number of people who actually have little or nothing to eat, forget about cable, increase.

Your state elections place a right wing group who wrap themselves in the flag and the cross into power. The economic situation continues to worsen.

Two years later.

You and your elderly wife own a nice parcel of farmland. You did your time in Vietnam and lost your belief in God. Your neighbor wants a big chunk of that land. He is the brother of the county power broker. He offers you half what you paid. You say "No."

You start getting denied service at certain businesses. Your wife has a friend who calls and asks if it is true you sometimes let homeless people camp down by your creek. The same people who may be involved in _________. The local pastor of the church that has grown tremendously in the last five years comes by and invites you to join. You refuse.

Two months later you and your wife are found dead. The Sheriff raids the creek camp. Four months later your parcel, because you have no heirs or a valid will goes to auction. Who gets it for next to nothing?

Dat Le, the owner of the one profitable restaurant in town is approached for a campaign contribution. He does not pay. His 17 year old daughter is abducted and raped. The investigation goes nowhere. Dat joins the church and tithes. His daughter commits suicide two years later.

The woman who owned the one art gallery in town and is know as a liberal has a fatal car wreck.

You are a Christian and a member, one of ten, of the local Catholic church. You and the other nine are getting pressured to join the super church. What do you do?

The local Latinos have been confined to a small area. A ghetto. They are illegal and are kept there until the feds show up. The feds are never notified. They work in the fields. What do you do?

I am a Christian. My version of one. That is perfectly legal still in the USA. The USA has a separation of church and state. What happens when the state becomes the church? Or the state no longer can enforce the separation?

I am on cordial terms with someone. She is a placid, funny older woman who has since retired. I mentioned one day that XXXX would not make a good President. She got extremely angry. In the blink of an eye I became the enemy. That kind of angry is restrained only by tenuous, invisible bonds that are far more fragile, because they are artificial, than you ever want to know.

The hate, the anger, the desire to profit at your expense, the blind need to destroy is out there. Surviving a major change only starts with canned goods. That only gets you to the first step on a very long road.
and in comments
I am really beginning to believe that it isn't about guns and beans. That will get you the first snowfall. It's the winter afterwards that is going to be interesting.
(please read and comment there)

Got Tribe?
Better start thinking about that first winter, and then- what comes after.

Islam is Brutality, Slavery, and Rape. Accept Reality. Then Eradicate Islam.

(bump-9/11 post)
News flash: Islam is war. Jihad is the duty of all muslims. The Jihad won't stop until they have been reduced to rubble -OR- have conquered you and raped your wife and children (“it’s in the Koran!”).
The Curmugeon Emeritus says:
(h/t PolyKahr)
Just in case you've napped away the past thirty years, there's a war on. No, not in Afghanistan, and certainly not in Iraq. The war of which your Curmudgeon speaks is the stealth jihad of which Robert Spencer and others have so eloquently warned us: the ongoing, loosely organized Islamic campaign to demoralize the nations of the West so that shari'a, Islam's law code, can penetrate our lands and eventually displace our native arrangements. That campaign uses Western "tolerance" toward religious differences to disarm our resistance to Islam's advance.

But Islam is not a religion. It's a totalitarian ideology with a few theological trimmings. If you're aware of its prescriptions, its proscriptions, and its record when in the saddle, you cannot sincerely disagree. If not, you need to complete your education before allowing yourself an opinion on the subject.


One does not fight a war by conciliating the enemy. No, not even a war of ideas, insofar as Islam can be considered an idea to be assessed objectively and rationally. In a war successfully concluded, there can only be victory and defeat. Inasmuch as Islam has defined itself as a war creed unalterably opposed to all others -- read the Koran if you don't believe your Curmudgeon on that score -- our choice is to prosecute the war to victory, or to meekly accept defeat.
Everyone knows- Mohammed was a psychopath who started a totalitarian culture of brutality that is incompatible with reality.
And now it is time for islam to be extinguished, like other vicious tribal insanities.

PolyKahr points out that we don't have a choice,
We have been at war with these people since the day Mohammad founded his crazy "faith." We are at war whether we want to be or not, whether we recognize it or not, whether we are prepared or not. There can be no peace with these people. Islam is an implacable enemy, who will not stop. That being the case, I think burning some Korans is not a bad idea. Not a bad idea at all. Throw in some copies of Mein Kampf while you're at it.
There will be much commotion and crying and gnashing of teeth.
But exposure to Western freedoms is killing Islam. Islam is dying, and they know it.

Sure they cause some trouble, like the KKK or MS-13 or Mexican Drug Cartels. But they are brutal thugs and will be put down as thoroughly as the KKK, and the SS.
America, the West, and Liberty triumphs over pedophiles, rapists, slavers, wifebeaters, and thugs.


It is inevitable, so we may as well start talking about it . . .

Sophia Church? Cordoba Cathedral? City of Constantinople? Buddist statuary in Afghanistan?
Temple Mount can erase the mohammedan eyesore and restore the Temple.
Destruction and then building on rubble is an Islamic philosophical schwerpunkt, and therefore a vulnerability, and therefore a necessity.

Here's an updated map of Mecca, outlining plans for the “Kaaba Cathedral”. “Sister Mary’s Convent, and Women’s Shelter” is around the corner. The “Karbala BBQ” is across the street, next to “Mo’s Bar & Grill” and the “Haram-a-Burger” joint. The “Ayisha Massage Parlor” is just down the street.
The pig farms occupy most of the rest of the town. NASCAR Track to the northeast.

Yankee ingenuity, to build something useful on the rubble of Mecca.

By the way, the Pork-Rinds at “Mo’s Bar & Grill” are excellent. And try the Bacon Cheeseburger !
And...for private parties you can book the exclusive "Goat Room" at the "Ayisha Massage Parlor".  (h/t Birk)

Mecca & Medina ? ?    Oh Hell no !

Mecca re-named: The City of Sobeiski.
Medina re-named: The City of Martel.

Sobeiski & Martel.   Has a nice ring to it!
[ And helps us remember 11 September 1683, when Islam got uppity and needed it's ass kicked outside Vienna. ]

We need to find a City worthy of the name Holger Danske.

Never forget the perpetual victims of this sick cult, 1400 years worth.
Light a pyre every 9/11 in remembrance of recent victims and in remembrance of the victory at Vienna.

Grow a pair.                                                             Then do what men do to protect the women and children.


May we re-discover the will to live, and accept that war has come to us, that makes us the latest target of 1400 years of slaughter. May we accept our grim duty and methodically wipe out the mental illness that is islam; branch, stem, and root.

Happy Birthday!

29 March 1911: The US Army formally adopts a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun developed by Mr. John Moses Browing,
US Patent Number 984,519;  and designates it the Model 1911.

The rest ... is history ...

After 100 years, many of Mr. Brownings inventions are still the best at what they do.

When Men Become Truly Free

h/t Bad Cyborg

Watch the video.

Colin Ryan poem When Men Become Truly Free
Written by Colin Ryan
Read by Des Brittain
When Men Become Truly Free
by Colin Ryan

There comes a times in the lives of men
When the ruthless and the criminally insane
Who rule the masses for their own gain
Make the fatal mistake of enjoying too much
Their psychopathic entertainment.
They lose control in their lust for blood
And take too far their need to tread men down
By destroying any sense of a secure life
And taking away each and every freedom
Stealing the last piece of wealth they possess
So they cannot even care for their own
Stifling their voice with laws and corruption
Beating them down with rule by force
Where no justice exists for those being played
And there is no direction left for men to turn.
When this insane game is taken this far
Comes the time when men have nothing left to lose.
This is the time when the minds of men are freed.
It is a time when man loses his fear of death.
This is the time when a man becomes invincible,
He becomes free to do whatever he must do
Without fear for his life or for his future.
He will take control of the destiny of the world
Away from the bloodied hands of the soulless.
Any action he takes he will take with a surety
That he must do something for he has no future.
So the act he chooses will be all the greater
For when faced with oblivion and with no way out
There is one thing this now fearless man will do.
He will take down as many of his oppressors with him
Gladly die in a selfless act to change the world's future.
This day is coming soon as it always does.
The perverse minds of evil always self destruct
As their addiction to our suffering can never be sated,
Exerting control for their paranoia and fear of men.
For every good man will take down these brutes.
Every free man will give up himself for his brothers.
For a man with nothing left becomes fully empowered
And he is the most unassailable weapon.
(C) 2010 Colin Ryan
What a fine poem for our times.

Colin- Next time I'm up your way, let me buy you a pint.

Shut Up, and Plow For Your Masters

People are realizing that the public sector unions are organized against YOU.
They are protesting against you. They demand that you pay them, or else they will abondon their jobs and wreak havoc and violence and great expense upon your state and municipality.

TL in Exile
So, now that it is apparent that these union goons are protesting against you, the taxpayer, the benefactor of their existence, at the behest of the Democratic Party…


Unfortunately, there seems to be no outrage that the Democratic Party, through the President of the United States, has conducted a huge money-laundering scheme via labor unions and now expects the members of these unions to help them stall and even discourage legislation. Are any of you awake?

Of the Stimulus Bill over $800 billion was meted out to these entities on the FIRST page alone: ...
There follows a list of ‘Stimulus’ to public sector unions.

Funding public sector unions is not ‘stimulating’ the econmy. It only stimulates the bank accounts of political organizations. We used to call that graft and corruption. Kleptocracy. Now it’s being called “stimulus”. And they don't want the gravy train to stop.

Michael Barone tells of
Enormous contributions, yes -- to the Democratic Party and the Obama campaign. Unions, most of whose members are public employees, gave Democrats some $400 million in the 2008 election cycle. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the biggest public employee union, gave Democrats $90 million in the 2010 cycle.
Follow the money, Washington reporters like to say. The money in this case comes from taxpayers, present and future, who are the source of every penny of dues paid to public employee unions, who in turn spend much of that money on politics, almost all of it for Democrats. In effect, public employee unions are a mechanism by which every taxpayer is forced to fund the Democratic Party.
ColdFury comments
A nice, tight, and very vicious little circle indeed. Don’t be fooled by all the whining about the poor, put-upon “little guy” here. This fight is all about power, from first to last, and nothing more. The Democrat Socialists and their union footsloggers intend to hold onto it, by hook or by crook, and taxpayers be damned, of course and as always.

Liberal-fascists want you to know your proper role here, which is to stay bent over, stop complaining, be humble, and keep paying up. And for God’s sake, stop electing people like Walker who have seen through their cozy little scam and intend to try to put a stop to it, willya?
This about about people who want to keep you plowing for them, to keep the chains on you.
“..know your proper role here, which is to stay bent over, stop complaining, be humble, and keep paying up.”

Just to be clear: I don’t want to end the scam and extortion. I want the extortionists and scam artists punished and jailed for what they have already done.

Should we accept serial rape, and never do anything to stop it? Should we feel better when they take a break, when they are demanding their right to come back for more? If we do not go after the rapists to stop the rape, then we should not complain when the rapists come again and again.

Bend over? No thanks.

Let's put and end to it, and hunt down the perpetrators.

The President Commits SEDITION, Actively Interfering in State Governance

from Deep Winter, ( h/t Arctic Patriot )
What is most concerning is that the President is effectively committing sedition, actively taking a role in funding the interference in a state to govern itself effectively and legally. Obama’s Organizing for America, the remains of his 2008 election campaign, is directly and admittedly involved in the situation.

From a sharp and clear voice on another forum, I submit for your consideration:
–noun 1. incitement of discontent or rebellion against a government. 2. any action, especially in speech or writing, promoting such discontent or rebellion. 3. Archaic . rebellious disorder.
OBAMA, our currently sitting POTUS, is not only inciting this with words and deeds, he's ******** FUNDING IT! HE IS DIRECTLY INTERFERING WITH THE STATE OF WISCONSIN'S SOVEREIGN RIGHT TO GOVERN. I also believe that Obama helped orchestrate the acts of the Wisconsin Democrats and probably funded their 'escape' to the Illinois resort and their transportation to that resort....”

Organizing for America is also actively looking at spreading this type of activity to other states that are looking to pare back on benefits paid to public employees and their unions by the taxpayers.


Destroying the ability of a state to govern, and then another and another, leaving only the Federal Government, provides a very bleak path to a Night of Long Knives.
He's got a point there.

States unable/unwilling to defend themselves will be subsumed. Indiana has already relented.

Who Are They Unionized Against? Against 'we the people'.

from comments over at Small Dead Animals
Tim 2/14/2011

It is really troubling to see what many of you are writing.

I am a private sector employee, lucky to have my job and to be able to feed, clothe and house my wife and four kids - all of which attend a public school. I have a modest income of $50,000 per year gross. Out of this income, I pay 100% of my insurance premiums for my $10,500 family deductible health insurance plan. I have no 401k and pensions haven't existed in my private sector industry for 25+ years. Like many of my coworkers, I have not seen a raise in the past several annual reviews. My company's revenues are down, and we middle class workers share in the down cycle.

My wife and I love the commitment of our kid's school teachers. We help and support them any way we can. But it is so difficult to hear the arguments and disdain against our family by all of you teachers.

[read the whole thing]

The unions feel that they are entitled to have the rest of us support them.
The more they clarify their feelings about us, the more the nation is revolted by them.

On Meet the Press
There was a referendum on this issue and the unions lost.

The teachers union is compelling society to pay them much more than the median wage and give them a great retirement. Average Wisconsin teacher makes between $80,000.00 and $90,000.00 per year (including benefits) for 39 weeks of work a year with 13 weeks off. Meanwhile, the average Wisconsin resident in the private sector makes $37,398.00 for a full year's work.

Those are the issues: Do the citizens plow for the teachers, or will the teachers agree to work for the citizens?
The elections in Wisconsin were a referendum on cost cutting measures. Does voting work, or is voting now irrelevant (does might now make right, or does corruption make right, or is it voting)?

The Unions have a good ponzi scheme going, and they want to keep the money flowing.
from Redstate
If the union can defeat Scott Walker’s reform plans, not only does it keep the union dues of teachers, it also gets to keep its health insurance monopoly intact.
Watch. Next move? The union will try use force (it's what they do). They already abandoned their jobs to create havoc, to 'show the citizens' their power. Next, goons will be brought in to compel the citizens to plow for them. National level thugs (lawyers, guns, and money) are being bussed in.

How much is this costing Wisconsin? Who should pay for the disruption, lost days, and associated costs? Part of the Union strategy is to explode costs for the State, at a time when the State is vulnerable to budgetary pressure. Turn-about is fair play- Bankrupt the Union, Jail the leadership, and make Public Unions illegal: Who are they organizing against? Against 'we the people'.

What I propose:

1) Wisconsin balances their budget, as best they can. The election was about that, now do it.

2) Walking out from jobs = Firing offense.

3) The Union is creating expense for a State that cannot afford it. Make sure the people of the State know the total cost to the State for this Union strategy. Make it clear that taxes will need to go up to cover the costs, if the Union responsible refuses to pay for expenses associated with their actions.

4) Union responsible for organizing = Repay the people of the State for direct and indirect costs of their protest.

5) National organizations busing in outside agitators? Arrest them locally, and issue warrants for others who support them (Pelosi, Reid, Rahm, Obama, et al).

6) Pass bills nationally, making 'public employee unions' illegal organizations, organized against (what?) the people and/or against the government they are supposed to serve.

*** *** ***

Like Unions, the Ivy League schools depend on Tax Payer money to exist. These "private" schools receive "public money" (my money), for everything from government backed student loans to research grants.

Yet, these schoools now openly hate America and the American people. Why am I forced to pay for them?
We need to keep that in mind when severe budget cuts are necessary... "Ivy League, Delende Est"

Why support a group that actively works to undermine your culture, your history, your civilization; and which supports people and projects and ideologies which are repugnant to Western Civilization and to the Constitution? Their support for Communism and Facism would be examples. Uncivil hatred of America and of Americans, would be another.

It's your money. You get to choose where it gets spent. no?

Supreme Court To Revisit Elegibility

from Bob Unruh at World Net Daily
In a stunning move, the U.S. Supreme Court has scheduled another "conference" on a legal challenge to Barack Obama's eligibility to occupy the Oval Office, but officials there are not answering questions about whether two justices given their jobs by Obama will participate.

The court has confirmed that it has distributed a petition for rehearing in the case brought by attorney John Hemenway on behalf of retired Col. Gregory Hollister and it will be the subject of a conference on March 4.


"The real question here is one of getting members of the judiciary to take seriously the oath that they swore to protect and preserve the Constitution," Hemenway wrote in his petition for rehearing. "To continue to avoid the issue will destroy the constitutional rule of law basis of our legal system when it is under vigorous assault as surely as if the conscious decision were made to cease preserving and protecting our founding charter."
How was this not definitively settled before elections? Shirking responsibility. Playing along to get along. Loving tranquility so much, that they couldn't be bothered to do their jobs, to protect the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

'The Jipster' wishes he was like 'The Gipper'

The urban dictionary defines "jip":
1. jip
Verb: To take unfairly, to rob.
Alternate Spellings: Gyp, Gip, Jyp.
Shortening of the word Gypsie, as Gypsies were believed to be thieves.
'I got jipped.'
'What a jip.'

2. jip
'It's giving me some jip.'

3. Jip
A letdown.
Or in some cases a rip-off.
'I paid £8 to see this lame movie, what a jip!'
'Red Hot Chili Peppers at Leeds Festival 07, pft, what a jip!'
RCP has video: Obama Refers To Himself As "The Gipper" In Farewell To Gibbs.

"The Gipper" ? No way.

"The Jipster" fits better.

At Least They Are Trying

Junior GOP Congresscritters are trying.

from The Hill
House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) on Friday evening introduced a revised 2011 government spending bill that the GOP said will cut at least $100 billion in spending this fiscal year, bowing to demands by Tea Party-backed House freshmen.

The continuing resolution funding the government after March 4 cuts deeply across all areas of domestic spending and singles out many programs for complete elimination.

In the CR $81 billion has been cut from non-security programs, and security-related programs have been reduced by $19 billion, compared to Obama’s 2011 budget request.

The legislation will increase funding for the Department of Defense by 2 percent over last year’s level.

“This evening, on behalf of House Republicans, Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers introduced a Continuing Resolution that will reduce spending by at least $100 billion in the next 7 months – a historic effort to get our fiscal house in order and restore certainty to the economy,” Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said in a statement.
There is a difference between politics and actually doing something.
Several of the new Congresscritters are trying to actually do something.

Charles Manson-Cloward-Piven

Foreign Policy? The world is as digusted with Obama as we are.
Abdication of responsibility, weakness, and backstabbing traditional allies.

Charles Manson- Cloward- Piven marxism strategy. Chaos, anarchy. "Burn, Baby, Burn" Remember?
And the 'community organizers are convinced that they will (a) survive, and (b) float to the top during the chaos, like drug lords.

Once it's viewed as the Charles Manson plan, it is easier to anticipate their actions.

Brightest Blurb on Thursday's Internets

comment by 'Birdman III' at Townhall article by Walter E. Williams
article linked at Western Rifle Shooters Association
At some point a collapse WILL happen. And then there will no longer be any money for anything, Defense, Home Security, Education, SS, Welfare, Medicare, et al. No one will give us any money loans and the well will dry up. The one who happens to be in office at the time will receive the blame. And we will be fair game for any tinpot dictator to walk in and take it all. Who would stop him?

All that oil we can't drill now wili be confiscated to someone else's benefit and the American people will go without. The trees we can't harvest now will be cut down for someone else's warmth and housing and the American people will do without. The coal that we can't mine wil be mined for someone else's use and the American people will do without.

Maybe at that point a new generation of Chino-Americans will wake up and become self-sufficient like our fore-fathers. But it will not save the America we grew old in. That America will cease to exist. And people around the world will cheer and celebrate until the next earthquake or tsunami or volcanie eruption and no one comes to the rescue.

We can bite the bullet now and possibly save the old America or we can let continue under Socialism and die a slow ugly death. You choose America between platitudes or reality. You can serve God and save yourselves or you can choose Man-god, as for me and my family we will serve God.
Me? I think we're past the point of saving 'the old America'. That bus was deliberately driven over the cliff, and sure as gravity and economic principles, it's only a matter of WHEN we crash onto the rocks below.

But it's good that some folks still believe it can be saved. May they be right.

Bigger Magazines and Violent Crime

Data beats propaganda.

Virgnia violent crime went down after larger magazines became available again in 2004; from 282 per 100,000 in 2000, fairly level, until a year or so after 2004, down to 227 in 2009.

After 5 years of larger magazine sizes, the decrease accelerates! The 2009 Virginia rate is the 7th lowest in the nation.

More Liberty, and Safer Citizens.

Liberty is Good.

Notice the Peoples Republic of Maryland, with uber-restrictive gun laws and 20 round magazine limitations IS MUCH MUCH WORSE than gun friendly Virgina. Also notice that larger magazines in Virgina did not lead to massive liberal bloodbaths in Maryland (despite the mythology).

Is Maryland benefitting from Virginia and National laws?
Someone is going to have to study that.

Years of data - Beats the spin on media hype, doesn't it?

What else was Virginia doing these last few years?
Expanding Open carry
'Shall Issue' Concealed Carry
Unrestricted Magazine sizes
And crime was going down. Hmmmmmmmm.

I'm not saying crime reducing is what led to magazine sizes changing, or that magazine sizes changing is what led to reduced crime. The data is being shown. And the data debunks the lies being told in the media.

Why the focus on Virginia today? Well, CA over at Western Rifle Shooters Association links to articles where some geniuses noticed that in the years since larger magazines have been legal, that police are finding more of the legal magazines! Brilliant!
(Silly observation, really. But pushed as important findings by collectivists here)

The media lies don't end. Collectivists want to take your Liberty.
Seek data to keep informed. Liberty depends on the Truth.

How about National 'violent crime rates' after larger magazines were again available?
FBI data shows national violent crime also going down after those larger magazines magazines are available.

What else was was happening Nationally during these last few years?
Expanding Open carry
More 'Shall Issue' Concealed Carry
Nationally unrestricted Magazine sizes
And violent crime was decreasing? Hmmmmmmm.

Liberty is good.

The data debunks their mythology.

Liberty depends on the Truth.

Data beats propaganda.

[update] Tip of the hat to Borepatch for catching/correcting some of mine. He tried. What's still wrong, is all mine.

[update 2] Tam has a great post regarding magazine size, and the best comment:
"I relate the magazine restriction to governing all cars to 30mph because drunk drivers kill people. If they could only reach 30mph, fewer deaths would result."
Surely, that wins the internets (?)

spotted at Eternity Road
the police—oathbreakers all—in Arlington, MA, who have conspired in violation of the First and Second Amendments and 18 USC 241 - 242 to deny one Travis Corcoran the free exercise of his constitutionally-protected civil rights.
Travis is known as TJIC on his blog (now offline). Goons came and took his guns and ammo and his Massachusetts 'gun license', as they trampled on the Constitution, some Amendments, Federal Law, and common sense.

Borepatch is leading this cause, and he provides the details of the 'high crimes and misdemeanors' TJIC is implicated in:
On the day that Congresswomen Giffords and a Federal Judge and 7 others were shot, TJIC had a Blog headline that said: "1 down, 534 to go."
His comments were along the lines of the old lawyer joke: What do you call a ship full of lawyers at the bottom of the sea? A good start.

To say that is a threat to lawyers is laughable on its face. Same as with TJIC's comment. Inflammatory? Perhaps. Boorish? Maybe.

But the First Amendment seems to me to apply especially to speech that people are likely to see as boorish.


It would be one thing if the law were applied equally to all.  It's not, and it will be applied disproportionately to us, because we hold views considered by some in power to be Double Plus Ungood.
Think back on the last 10 years and everything that was said, was done, pictures, and movies, and inciting with violent images and language; and then tell me that if this is allowed to happen to TJIC-- Then tell me who among us 300 million is safe from this?
First they came for the ... [you know the rest!]
Borepatch just recently escaped from the 'Peoples Republic of Massachusetts', and reminds us: Was it not "... a famous Massachusetts citizen who said We must all hang together, or surely we will all hang separately." (Ben Franklin)

If not now, then when? Really.

In my father's time, anyone flagrantly violating the Constitution and Federal Law would be imprisoned for long stretches for such actions repugnant to the Constitution... So now we must watch and see: 'is there any law'? And if it is demonstrated that 'there is no law', then what?

Title 18, USC, Sections 241 and 242
Title 18, U.S.C., Section 241
Conspiracy Against Rights

This statute makes it unlawful for two or more persons to conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person of any state, territory or district in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him/her by the Constitution or the laws of the United States, (or because of his/her having exercised the same).
It further makes it unlawful for two or more persons to go in disguise on the highway or on the premises of another with the intent to prevent or hinder his/her free exercise or enjoyment of any rights so secured.

Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242
Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law

This statute makes it a crime for any person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom to willfully deprive or cause to be deprived from any person those rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution and laws of the U.S.
This law further prohibits a person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation or custom to willfully subject or cause to be subjected any person to different punishments, pains, or penalties, than those prescribed for punishment of citizens on account of such person being an alien or by reason of his/her color or race.
Acts under "color of any law" include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the bounds or limits of their lawful authority, but also acts done without and beyond the bounds of their lawful authority; provided that, in order for unlawful acts of any official to be done under "color of any law," the unlawful acts must be done while such official is purporting or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. This definition includes, in addition to law enforcement officials, individuals such as Mayors, Council persons, Judges, Nursing Home Proprietors, Security Guards, etc., persons who are bound by laws, statutes ordinances, or customs.
Punishment varies from a fine or imprisonment of up to one year, or both, and if bodily injury results or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire shall be fined or imprisoned up to ten years or both, and if death results, or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.
This situation will clarify a few open questions. We can watch and discover the position of this government: Does 'might make right'? Are some portions of the population now Overlords, 'above the rule of law'? Are the people now slaves, no longer whole men; but just 3/5ths of a man, and subject to the whims of their masters?
"If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stomping on a human face -- forever."
- George Orwell
What is the position of the government? Are they constituted to protect our Life, Liberty, and Property? Or is it their intent to trample the common man? And to do so publicly and boldly, to demonstrate that they can.
