For years, I’ve watched governments take control of our lives. Their argument is always the same: ‘Fewer costs, greater efficiency.’ But the result is the same, too. Less control by the people, more control by the State — until the individual’s anguishes count for nothing. That is what I consider my duty to resist. The point of a so-called great family is to protect our freedoms.
Your great grandchildren won’t thank you when the state is all-powerful because we didn’t fight.”

Oregon’s Malheur County Sheriffs – Brian Belnap and Brian Beck – illegal stop and then they discuss it forgetting that they are still recording themselves. If anyone had any doubt, the large number of corrupt and dishonest police officers is frightening. Malheur County Sheriffs office actually raises money at the rodeo. In the video, SHARK president Steve Hindi had been ejected from the rodeo for no reason other than he had a camera. And then you see what happens here.
- ‘I do not expect to see home again’…
- ‘I don’t want to live in a society that does these sort of things’
- ‘I believed in Obama’s promises’
- ‘Presidents openly lie to secure the office’
- ‘Government has granted itself power it is not entitled to’
- ‘Whenever we had a debate in the office on how to handle crimes, they do not defend due process – they defend decisive action. They say it is better to kick someone out of a plane than let these people have a day in court. It is an authoritarian mindset in general.’
- ‘Once you go on the network, I can identify your machine. You will never be safe whatever protections you put in place.’

Will the extremist Democrat Demagogues in Washington be financially responsible? Will the sun go dark at noon tomorrow? This week the President has reached a new low in demagoguery.
The President demagogues about the rich and their jets while a Democrat controlled House and filibuster-proof Senate passed with President Obama’s signature, the very provisions President Obama is complaining about.
This goes to show how far the extremist Democrat demagogues in Washington go to hold on to their own power instead of doing what is right and responsible.
The extreme spenders in Washington are more concerned about their own power rather than financial responsibility. The height of extremist foot-dragging has come from the President this week.
Here is video explaining how some Sheriffs in Florida intend to infringe upon the rights of law abiding citizens in the State of Florida, if Florida becomes an open carry State. Rick Hernandez, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, and Jim Coats of Pinellas County are disgraces to the badge for making statements like this. Hernandez states that anyone open carrying will be stopped. “When someone is walking down the street with an exposed gun, nobody knows if they’re legal or not legal. Do they have a permit? Maybe they do maybe they don’t.” No mention of probable cause. There are millions of people driving in Florida every day no one knows if they are legal or legal. Do they have a license? Maybe they do, maybe they don’t. Imagine if you could be stopped in your car just to verify your license? Sounds like a police state.
Jim Coats goes so far as to say “rights need to be granted in a responsible way.” Sheriff Coats, I think you have the United States confused with a Fascist country, perhaps Hitler’s Germany. In the United States, rights are not granted to the people. Rights are retained by the people. Privileges are granted, rights are not. Hernandez ends with “If we think that people carrying guns openly makes you safer, I think that is a bad assumption.” If we are operating on assumptions, I think Sheriffs like these two individuals carrying guns openly makes the entire State of Florida less safe.
Sheriff Rick Hernandez says it will be “very, very cumbersome, and very, very scary” if Florida becomes open carry. “Very cumbersome”? Sorry, Sheriff, if doing your job is “cumbersome” perhaps you should find a different profession? We wouldn’t want to have our rights make your job more difficult now would we. He goes on to state that “our stress level is very high at this point.” Well excuse the public for making you do your job. You don’t like the stress level? Pick another profession.
I do not know who is hiring these Sheriffs and police officers in Florida, but the quality and caliber of the men involved is so low as to be disappointing to anyone in the State.
Remember: when seconds count, the police are just minutes away. Exercise your rights or lose them.

“There’s a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to FOX and to MSNBC: ‘Out. Off. End. Goodbye.’ It would be a big favor to political discourse; our ability to do our work here in Congress, and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and more importantly, in their future.” Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV)
1. FoxNews and MSNBC are not on the airwaves, consequently the FCC has no jurisdiction.
2. Senator Jay Rockefeller must have missed at least part of the First Amendment to the Constitution, not to mention the entire Constitution itself.
What are the people of West Virginia thinking electing a clown like Rockefeller? He is right, without a press that is able to publish the truth, the Federal Government’s big-government, power-hungry politicians, would be able to ‘get away’ with a lot more. The First Amendment protects the country against the likes of Rockefeller.
The News & Observer of Raleigh, North Carolina reports that at least in some cases that the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation (NC SBI) lab has “ignored evidence” and “twist reports and court testimony when the trust threatened to undermine their cases.” “At the bureau’s crime lab, agents charged with using science to solve crimes have hidden test results or withheld notes that suggested the opposite of findings presented to the courts.”
The police anywhere must be above reproach incidents like this impact individual defendants and the trust that police officers have to rely upon. The North Carolina SBI should be embarrassed and must take steps to immediately clean up the mess. Power corrupts. North Carolina SBI Officers that took part in this should be charged and in jail themselves. Behavior such as this is completely unacceptable. Read the full story.
In a somewhat related story, the science of DNA test statistics has come under scrutiny. In part, the article states:
“The DNA analyst who testified in Smith’s trial said the chances of the DNA coming from someone other than Jackson were 1 in 95,000. But both the prosecution and the analyst’s supervisor said the odds were more like 1 in 47. A later review of the evidence suggested that the chances of the second person’s DNA coming from someone other than Jackson were closer to 1 in 13, while a different statistical method said the chance of seeing this evidence if the DNA came from Jackson is only twice that of the chance of seeing it if it came from someone else.”
For the details, please see here, first they take your guns, then they take your rights.. When you cede control of your life to the socialist, fascist, power-hungry politicians, they want to control every part of your life, all for a good cause of course.
