A Miami-Dade fire captain is under investigation after he asserted that the death of an unarmed Florida teen was the fault of “failed, shitbag, ignorant, pathetic, welfare dependent excuses for parents.”
Not that we are trying to start a race war or anything like that!
The US Congress has turned into a ‘puppet of the corporate machine’ and is being totally controlled by big corporations, says the President of Veterans for Peace.
While Americans focused their attention on the Colombian controversy involving U.S. Secret Service agents, prostitutes and excessive drinking, President Obama quietly signed his latest Presidential Executive Order.
The Supporting Safe and Responsible Development of Unconventional Domestic Natural Gas Resources Executive Order seeks to create what amounts to a Presidential super committee that will oversee the regulation and development of the ‘unconventional’ natural gas industry for the purpose of ensuring a long-term natural gas supply for the United States, as well as to do so in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.
Mitt Romney as a conservative? Now there is a laugh. This so called conservative, as Governor of Massachusetts, signed an assault weapons ban that has remained in effect despite the fact that the federal ban has been lifted. I do not know who is calling Romney a conservative but they obviously are blind to the fact that we the American people are purchasing guns literally faster than they can be produced.
The ground game is on! Our volunteer team will soon be calling registered Republican voters urging them to vote for Sheriff Mack. We will also start neighborhood walkabouts, visiting in person voters who have voted in 3 out of the last 4 elections. Technology has afforded the ability to pre-plan the walkabout by sending to your smart phone or tablet a sequentially ordered route.
Don’t be such a tease!
The LENCO BearCat Special Missions armored vehicle is coming to New Hampshire, Keene, city councilors told a gathering of citizens wearing “Thanks but No Tanks” T-shirts at Thursday night’s meeting.
Councilors provoked an outcry in December when they accepted a $285,933 Homeland Security grant to buy the armored vehicle without a public hearing.
Residents rallied, calling the purchase a waste of federal tax dollars; some said it would militarize the city’s police force.
Over the last month we have reported on the numerous and increasingly alarming purchases of hollow point ammuntion by the Department of Homeland Security.
While many have claimed that it is completely normal for domestic government agencies to order over 750 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point ammo, the fact remains that these purchases have been anything but normal and signal a full scale militarization of various government agencies that could one day take on the American people.
Now, a new post on the infamous FBO.gov website by Homeland Security is once against raising eyebrows.
Unprecedented Latin American opposition to U.S. sanctions on Cuba left President Barack Obama isolated at a summit on Sunday and illustrated Washington’s declining influence in a region being aggressively courted by China.
As a US Citizen **YOU** are the world’s only nationality not allowed to travel to Cuba!
My problem is with the people who TOOK the sandwiches for their votes!
This past weekend at “The Summit of the Americas” in Columbia, President Barrack Obama met with 33 different heads of stateto discuss issues which are important to the diplomacy between these many countries.
Much to the Obama administrations dismay, the main topic at this summit was the drug war, or more specifically ending the drug war by legalizing drugs.
The western establishment has successfully painted the legalization movement as a bunch of disgruntled hippies who just want to get high, however, like many political memes this statement offers a gross oversimplification of the real topic at hand.
Enacting a law that bars doctors from discussing gun safety with their patients. Slicing the “f-word” from a designated free-speech wall. Blocking websites about non-mainstream religions and gay-advocacy groups from public computers.
Those were some of the dubious achievements that the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression cited Thursday in announcing its “Muzzle” awards. The Charlottesville center bestows the Muzzles annually to mark the April 13 birthday of Jefferson, its namesake, a free-speech advocate and the nation’s third president.
The stand-your-ground doctrine, which has vaulted into national prominence with the killing of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, isn’t limited to the two dozen states that have passed laws since 2005 expanding the right to use deadly force in confrontations.
It’s also the rule in California, by court decree. For more than a century, the state’s judges have declared that a person who reasonably believes he or she faces serious injury or death from an assailant does not have to back off – inside or outside the home – and instead can use whatever force is needed to eliminate the danger.
Zimmerman is trying to claim he had the right to kill Trayvon under the “Stand your ground” rule, but the fact is Zimmerman was following Trayvon. It was Trayvon was was feeling threatened by this unknown man without a badge or gun who was shadowing him. Stand your ground applied to Trayvon, who had a legal right to defend himself against Zimmerman, who had been told by the police not to follow Trayvon any longer, but of course thanks to the gun grabbers, Trayvon was not armed and hence was unable to defend himself when Zimmerman murdered him.
As written, Bill 1813 states that the IRS must find that $50,000 or more is owed by the citizen—but this is a unilateral determination by the IRS, and it includes penalties and interest. So the alleged amount that you owe could be substantially less—but you are now no longer allowed to travel.
This bill is proclaiming that there is no escape allowed from the constantly increasing taxes, which is the government’s way of saying you have no choice but to stand and fight.
And, of course, if the government is so silly as to keep citizens who know the 16tth Amendment wasn’t actually ratified inside the borders, we’ll just go on teaching our friends and neighbors that history. Realizing that the US Government did lie about Saddam’s nuclear weapons, people are more accepting of the reality that the US Government lied to us to loot our wallets for the privately-owned Federal Reserve banks.
The pictures of Hillary Clinton dancing the night away in Colombia during the Summit of the Americas are now all over Twitter, and were first reported by ABC News:
SS stiffs a hooker, and now Hillary twirls the night away for the Paparazzi. What they are NOT telling you is that Obama has run into a brick wall at these negotiations and things are not going well at all.
“He is not! I am!” — Official White Horse Souse
If it’s good enough for Mitt Romney, it;s good enough for you! I posted this because some scammer is advertising on TV that they will file this for you for only $19.95 and the fact is you can fill this out for free (assuming you plan to file at all this year).
The US government pretends to live under the rule of law, to respect human rights, and to provide freedom and democracy to citizens. Washington’s pretense and the stark reality are diametrically opposed.
US government officials routinely criticize other governments for being undemocratic and for violating human rights. Yet, no other country except Israel sends bombs, missiles, and drones into sovereign countries to murder civilian populations. The torture prisons of Abu Gahraib, Guantanamo, and CIA secret rendition sites are the contributions of the Bush/Obama regimes to human rights.
