Spreading the news one blog post at a time!

1. Official CT State Police spokesman says that state police would participate in door to door gun confiscations : “The legislature of CT says that a registration is needed so they can know where the guns are. Yet at the same time, they are sending threatening letters to gun owners. So they already have records of who has purchased certain guns. The fact is, that the CT legislature fully intends to confiscate hundreds of thousands of firearms anyway. The registration process will simply make it easier to confiscate, because you acknowledge that you still own a firearm that the state already suspects that you own. CT State Police Spokesman Lt. Vance says that state police would comply with an order from the state to conduct door to door gun confiscations.”

2. Supreme Court Rules Police May Search A Home Without Obtaining A Warrant : “RT reports that the US Supreme Court has ruled that police may search a home without obtaining a warrant despite the objection of one occupant if that occupant has been removed from the premises.” Sort of makes you think about yesterdays poll “Do you think that the 2nd Amendment has protected us from losing the others?”.

3. Gov’t Spooks Hacked Millions of Webcams : “In one six-month period in 2008 alone, the agency collected webcam imagery – including substantial quantities of sexually explicit communications – from more than 1.8 million Yahoo user accounts globally.”

4. That explains it… Yes, There Are Paid Government Trolls On Social Media, Blogs, Forums And Websites : “Do you want solid proof that paid government shills are targeting websites, blogs, forums and social media accounts? For years, many have suspected that government trolls have been systematically causing havoc all over the Internet, but proving it has been difficult. But now thanks to documents leaked by Edward Snowden and revealed by Glenn Greenwald, we finally have hard evidence that western governments have been doing this.”

5. Three-Star General: Muslim Brotherhood Has Infiltrated Pentagon, DOD In ‘High Security Clearance’ Positions : “U.S. Army Lieutenant General (Ret.) William “Jerry” Boykin, in a recent World Net Daily radio interview, confirmed that people with high security clearances connected to the Muslim Brotherhood hold important positions in every major federal agency including the Pentagon and the Department of Defense.”

6. U.S. Military Not Ready for Cyber Warfare : “Those attacks are coming and I think those are near term and we’re not ready for them,” said Army Gen. Keith Alexander, head of Cyber Command and also outgoing director of the National Security Agency.”

7. Officer shoots 70-year-old man reaching for cane : “A police officer in South Carolina shot a 70-year-old motorist who was reaching for a cane during a traffic stop because he thought the man was grabbing a rifle from the bed of his pickup truck, investigators said.” Trigger happy police strike again…

    well we’ll see if the yankees got any fight in them now or if they are all talk. molon labe

    • The season doesn’t even start until April. Yep, Jeter is supposed to be back for one more year. Glad there’s another fan out there.

    • RR,
      Keep in mind that those same Yankees fired the first shots heard round the world. Sadly, they may have lost their backbone in the interveining years.

    • To be honest if they all allowed themselves to be arrested,asked for jury trials and refused to give up the right to a speedy trial this would go away. It would be way to expensive and time consuming to go through trying 100,000 people. The problem would be for the first ones until they figured this out.

  2. #1, doesnt surprise me. The new world order is happening at an ever alrming speed.
    #2, doesnt surprise me. see comment for number 1.
    #7, In view of my recent comments concerning my complete hatred for what our police have turned into,armed thugs and gangs,Im going to try and see things from this officers point of view.Maybe the 70 year old man was one of those highly trained geriatric ninjas you hear so much about. Maybe that cane he was reaching for was one of those tactical assault canes,maybe even high capacity.

    • #7. I would have to ask at what point did the victim represent a viable, shootable threat? Do they mean to tell me that a much younger police man couldn’t wait to see what was coming out of the pickup bed, identify it as a weapon, and then respond before a 70+ year old can pick up a rifle, assume a firing position, and discharge his weapon? I’d like to be on that jury!

      • My question for any LEO is why wasn’t the bed of the truck cleared, and why was he out of the truck in the first place?
        I also wonder when they are body armored up why is the fear so high?
        I really feel this one has either training issues or there is more to the story.

    • BC, check out canemasters.com

      • Good link, thanks. I may have to get one of their canes. The one I use in public has a heavy brass harness hame as a grip and lately it’s been drawing some disapproving looks which kind of defeats the purpose since I don’t actually need it to walk.

        • Dog Log says:

          I got a kick out of it when I first stumbled across it, but it looks serious, useful. Something to consider for when I age a little more.

    5. My father, a colonel in the USAF, had to hold several security clearances but never had access to the Pentgon. This “dude” (if Obama had a general…) can go wherever he wants. Does this make sense?
    My uncle, who was the top civilian in charge of missile silos across the West, remarked once that anyone with an IQ of 40, could get clearance. Often he said that security was a joke…

    Our political correctness, often mentioned on this blog, will be the downfall of our once great country. From not baking a cake on religious grounds to nongender bathrooms in schools to the Pentagon, common sense has become the joke.

    • NW:

      With the political correctness going on in the administration of the country and having it “trickle down” into the senior ranks of the military, I would not be surprised if you could put “radical Islamist” under religious preference, and still get a TS clearance! Once upon a time, 3 traffic violations would mean you couldn’t get a Secret level clearance. If you were too far in debt, they would pull your access to TS (Top Secret) material.

      Now we promote officers, with identified mental issues, unqualified for their jobs, BECAUSE they are a “minority”. Then when they shout “Allah Akbar” and start shooting soldiers, we call it “work place violence”.

      • Tactical G-Ma says:

        Used to if you ever used marijuana you couldn’t get a clearance either. But the last pres did coke and this one smoked dope so I guess anything goes now.

      • In at least one agency that shall go un-named (see what’s in caps), no one can have one DUI or oNe asSAult charge (including self defense). But in Congress, one can apparently do away with girlfriends, take bribes, divert billions of dollars, use insider trading info, etc.

        When the lefties screw up the military, that really really really pees me off and scares the poo out of me. The Ft. Hood shooting never ever should have happened. Politically correct and/or totally incompetent superiors should be charged and then tossed under the bus.

  4. #7. I think fear plays a huge part in the interactions between the police and the rest of us. I think that police are more and more being “fed” fear in every training effort they are involved in. Out of that fear there is a huge rush to judgement and the reaction is a much more militarized police response and a lot more “action before assessment” going on. Add to that they usually only socialize with other law enforcement personnel, therefore, never, ever seeing that there are a lot of really good people out here in the real world. And yes, there is the ego problem fed by testosterone poisoning. That helps a lot as well.

    #1. It is hard to believe that our government would resort to door to door searches. They are willing to execute the orders of this small law and yet do not direct their officers to the big things. Law abiding citizens are low hanging fruit. It would be wonderful if the LE there refused the orders to do this, but they won’t………………there are no heroes anymore.

  5. Hunker-Down says:

    #1. Move out of there NOW!

    #1,2,3,4; Cant we do anything original? These are copycat Hitler methods. It works for a few years, then we take them down. Should have started 2 years ago.

    #5. I believe one has to be an accomplished liar to rise to a high political position. Muslims are taught it is preferred to lie to any infidel if it promotes conquering infidel lands. Getcher berka before getting raped or shot. The enemy has infiltrated us and the sheeple could care less.

    #6. Follow the money. Does the gang behind the curtain at the federal reserve want us to stay vulnerable?

    #7. The persons who hired that coward should be fired. They are unable to distinguish civil servants from criminals. The persons who declared his actions to be reasonable should be charged for obstructing justice.

  6. The door on the Arc is closing, either get inside, or experience God’s wrath. This time it won’t be water, it is promised to be fire.

    May God Bless you and keep you, may He make His face shine upon you, and give you His peace, in the coming days, weeks, months, and years. Amen

    Is any of this news? I weep for my grandchildren and their grandchildren.

    • I was in Newtown (Sandy Hook) eating at the Blue Colony Diner as the tragedy unfolded and had almost been run off the interstate 84 exit by two state cruisers – no one knew what was happening at the time. The legal reaction is senseless as it would not have prevented it if it had been in place beforehand. Regardless, I would rather not rely on 911 when threatened and run away! In Massachusetts we have the criminal right to work law – you must run out the back door and leave all for the scum – only law abiding folks go to jail or spend themselves into bankruptcy defending themselves – but Governor Patrick fights for EBT card use for tattoos, strip clubs and for increased gun control! The King’s army marched on Lexington and Concord in 1775 in Massachusetts to disarm the citizens – today’s governor has technology on his side and all are fingerprinted and filed for the upcoming confiscation – just a matter of time.

      • WYO Ryder says:

        Tom,

        I lived on the Sudbury/Concord line in the 70’s. My favorite time of year was April 19th – Patriots Day 1775 re-enactment – the Sudbury Minutemen milita would dress up in full regalia with muskets/cannons and march from Sudbury to Concord – they would go right by my house. It was AWESOME. I am disheartened to hear what is happening at present with Governor Patrick. Perhaps someday soon, the patriots still in Massachusetts will rise up and fight again for freedom.

        Blessings from a fellow neighbor.

  9. Nice new banner!

  10. #1 – Obviously the cops need to go back to school and learn what “Shall not be infringed” means.

    #2 – Reading the brief it seems that the victim of domestic violence gave permission but the guy who beat her up said no. Umm that is kind of a fine line and I can see both sides. Though I think it should be protected and I disagree with the ruling.

    #3 – want to bet they have done it with Skype also? Because I can not see them doing it to only one of the 2 main services.

    #4 – Trolls working for the government… say it isn’t so.

    #5 – We have known this for years, no surprise that the WH has been bringing in enemies to help destroy the nation.

  11. I try and have no contact with the police at all. I’m with bctruck on this. Most of the police are just another organized crime syndicate. I think that I might trust someone I had never met, before trusting a cop. I have been let off with a warning before, but the majority of the time I have been harassed and looked upon with suspicion for no reason. I would venture to say that, I don’t know if I would help a cop if I saw one in need. I just can not find any sympathy for the arrogant bastards. They will be a great addition to Obama’s SS troops.

  12. OwlCreekObserver says:

    The situation in Connecticut is the perfect example of what happens when a group of lawmakers set out to punish the innocent for the actions of one lone criminal. The legislators themselves openly acknowledge that their gun registration law was in direct response to the Sandy Hook Elementary killings. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence could have seen the reaction that would almost certainly result from their ill-advised legislation. Obviously the legislators in Connecticut ain’t that bright.

  13. # 1 and 2: I suspect that this will drive some gun-owners to go farther underground. -perhaps burying a cache, or other means to hide a weapon, or getting false paperwork indicating they sold it. However, some will likely sell their guns or give them to a friend/ relative out of state. Glad I live a red 2nd amend state.

  14. ozhillbilly says:

    So 3.6% of the adult population of Konnecticut are felons now? It’s going to be curious how this plays out. I didn’t see this story listed above but what about the school district in Kalifornia that just won a federal appeals court ruling pretty much squashing our 1st Amendment rights for the sake of safety in the school? What’s next? They gonna take our guns cause our neighbors and/or town need to be safe???

  15. There is a rumor of a member of the Muslim Brotherhood at the highest levels of the Whitehouse – goal was destabilize Libya, Egypt, Syria, etc.

  16. Jersey Drifter says:

    #1 Sounds like it is time for Colt to get some pressure from gun owners / future owners to move out of the state. Not that it would make a difference to the gun haters up there. Maybe some street barricades like they use in South America and Europe. Really big barricades, burning tires, cars, trucks, and about 6,000 to man it.

  17. To borrow a phrase , Just say NO, or come back with a warrant. I hope some civil right lawyer type is writing up his arguments for the Supremes now. Get your best strategies in line and worked out because this is a test case for the rest of the nation.

    They are doing what they are not supposed to or supposedly cannot do , but folks it is happening and here in America.
