Peoria Police Sgt Investigated by SS for FB Pic

You know what happens to snitches???

A post on the Facebook page of a veteran Peoria police sergeant depicting the photo of seven Centennial High School students in Peoria, four with guns and one holding up a T-shirt with a bullet-riddled image of President Barack Obama, was brought to the U.S. Secret Service's attention by a citizen and an "appropriate follow-up" is being conducted, a Washington D.C-based spokesman for the federal agency told The Republic Friday.

Two spans of the Eggner Ferry Bridge at US 68 and Kentucky 80 were destroyed Thursday night by the Delta Mariner, which was too tall to pass beneath the structure. No injuries were reported on the bridge or in the boat, which was carrying rocket components from Decatur, Ala., to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

The ship was traveling up the Tennessee River on its typical route to Florida's Atlantic coast when it hit the aging steel bridge, which was built in the 1930s and handles about 2,800 vehicles a day.

The U.S. Coast Guard is investigating the collision. And it's too early to speculate on exactly what caused the wreck until that probe is done, said Sam Sacco, a spokesman for ship owner and operator Foss Marine.

A store owner returned gunfire after a masked man shot at him during a failed robbery attempt Wednesday night at 10th and Robeson streets, police said.

Four armed, masked men were trying to rob the store when owner Teodro Reyes fired back at one of them, investigators said.

As the robbers fled empty-handed, one of them fired three shots toward the store as he ran north on North 10th Street, police said.

Can you descend to that primal place of fight at bad breath distance and prevail?


Everything about fighting starts inside your head.

“To the extent a request to withdraw the case referral is procedurally available, I do not believe such a request would be judicious given the hearing is set for tomorrow morning,” the Kemp letter states. “Anything you and your client place in the record in response to the challenge will be beneficial to my review of the initial decision; however, if you and your client choose to suspend your participation in the OSAH proceedings, please understand that you do so at your own peril.”

Secretary Napolitano Unveils National Strategy for Global Supply Chain Security

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano today unveiled the Obama administrations National Strategy for Global Supply Chain Security at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The Department of Homeland Security is committed to facilitating legitimate trade and travel, while preventing terrorists from exploiting supply chains, protecting transportation systems from attacks and disruptions, and increasing the resilience of global supply chains.
We must continue to strengthen global supply chains to ensure that they operate effectively in time of crisis; recover quickly from disruptions; and facilitate international trade and travel, said Secretary Napolitano. As a part of this effort, we look forward to working closely with our international partners in the public and private sector to build a more resilient global supply chain.

The National Strategy for Global Supply Chain Security outlines clear goals to promote the efficient and secure movement of goods and foster a resilient supply chain system. It also provides guidance for the U.S. government and crucial domestic, international, public and private stakeholders who share a common interest in the security and resiliency of the global supply chain.

Not many people outside our family know that each and every one of them can make their own snowshoes, siphon gas, transform volcanic rock into a hydroponic garden, repair a bike, bake bread, shoot a wild turkey, sprout a salad, make a duct tape hammock, milk a goat, service a generator, purify water three different ways, catch fish with a bed sheet, navigate by the sun, disable an intruder, and start a fire 14 ways without a match.

Dear IRS

 He also lists 17 reasons why he has not filed a return in 12 years.  Good info.

via Truth is Treason

Dear IRS,

Whereas the Internal Revenue Code defines a “withholding agent” at IRC 7701(a)(16), which states, “The term ‘withholding agent’ means any person required to deduct and withhold any tax under the provisions of Sections 1441, 1442, 1443 and 1461.” The first three sections apply to nonresident aliens and foreign corporations, while 1461 simply makes the agent responsible for monies collected.

Therefore, as I am neither a nonresident alien nor foreign corporation, my employer is not required to withhold income tax from my paycheck and since I no longer choose to volunteer, I submit this letter and demand the appropriate form and instructions, based on the above definition, i.e. the law, which I can then present to my employer to legally halt having income tax withheld from my paycheck.

Gas Price Spike Act, H.R. 3784

More redistribution shit the enemies are trying to choke down more of the surviving economy.  It seems the royalty of DC is once again spending other peoples money.

via The Hill

The Gas Price Spike Act, H.R. 3784, would apply a windfall tax on the sale of oil and gas that ranges from 50 percent to 100 percent on all surplus earnings exceeding "a reasonable profit." It would set up a Reasonable Profits Board made up of three presidential nominees that will serve three-year terms. Unlike other bills setting up advisory boards, the Reasonable Profits Board would not be made up of any nominees from Congress.

The traitors are:
  1. Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio)
  2. Reps. John Conyers Jr. (Mich.)
  3. Bob Filner (Calif.)
  4. Marcia Fudge (Ohio)
  5. Jim Langevin (R.I.)
  6. Lynn Woolsey (Calif.). 

No surprises there.

If these asshats are so hell bent on the redistribution of "wealth", then they need to step up and "redistribute" some of their wealth to their minions. 

But...the Oprichnina are above the law.  Maybe not for long......who knows which way the winds will blow.

Repercussions of NDAA?

Could this be the first incident in people saying "we will not stand for anything NDAA" or was it a night hunter?

Time will tell.

via Military Corruption

It was nearly twelve midnight on Friday, Jan. 20, at Camp Shelby, Miss., when a military policeman was shot while on routine patrol. His bulletproof vest stopped the slug and saved his life.

The unidentified MP was rushed to Forrest County General Hospital as a precaution. He was later released.

Officials at the largest National Guard training facility east of the Mississippi River are tight-lipped about who might have tried to kill the military policeman.

The gunshot came out of the dark and the attacker fled the scene. Sources say the incident could range from someone trying to steal scrap metal, all the way up to a possible terrorist incident. One thing is for sure. Whoever got off the shot, which struck the police officer in the chest, fully intended to kill the MP.

Investigators say the shooting took place at the North Gate, which begins at the southern boundary of the city of Hattiesburg.

The area on the 134,820 acre installation is usually fairly quiet late at night, with only a National Guard building and vehicle park in the immediate vicinity.

Both the Forrest County Sheriff's Dept. and the Army's CID are investigating. No word yet on whether or not the FBI has joined the search.

Just Pondering-Updated w/ comments

OtL has an update to his post from some one who saw it go down.  I have some words to say, but will hold my tongue, as they would be construed as threats against LEO.  But I will say Santa is making a list & checking it twice.

Lancaster Citizen at 1:21 PM January 22, 2012
I see the comments…but on this one I was there. This dude just finished coming into my buddy’s store, bought a few items, talked with us, he was very peaceful. Now you could tell he had a drug problem, but this guy was wearing a t-shirt, and sweat pants….those flimsy kind with the drawstring in the front, there is no way those would manage to hold a gun much less anything else….He was on a kids BMX bike. So as far as the thug comment…this dude was not one. and the shots rang out, police were there in less then 30 seconds after that…and i mean alot of them. They could have handled this so many different ways, but like always….they decided to shoot…and they shot ALOT of times…dude couldn’t have been bigger than 5’9, and maybe 150 pounds….and the so called “suspect”….he was a witness…and we seen with our own eyes…they threatned to kill him too…I would have ran too. But these cops will walk…go home to there families…and this dude went home in a bag. SMH.

On to Liberty has a post up on a man murdered by LEO for riding a bicycle on the sidewalk.

Curtis @ Battliefield USA has a similar story from his area.

 In the past year we have saw more of these stories.  At some point the some citizens are going to stand up and say enough is enough.  We have seen few people stand up and fight back.  But, I'm talking about "what's good for the goose is good for the gander" thing on a large scale.

I did not think much more about it till I visited a good size gun shop here last Saturday. I was shocked, the parking lot was full and inside the store you could hardly find a spot at the counter (and like I said this is a large gun shop).
The store had 3 telephones on speed dial trying to get background checks done, the phones were on speaker so I could hear them. The applications were stacked up because of the wait. I heard an employee saying they had not seen this much activity before, apparently it was over the entire country.

David & Goliath-UPDATE

1/22/12-The oldest came home yesterday and showed us picture she took of the test in the "geography" class.  She held fast and did not answer the questions on islam.

  • What are the 5 pillars of islam?
  • What is the difference between sunni & shia sects?
  • What place do muslims go to once in their life?
  • What is this called?
If these type religious questions are taking place, they a far above the minimum requirement from the state.  Why doesn't Christianity get equal billing?  You know the answer.

Resist, fight, do anything. But do not sit quietly.


    We felt like David back in the Old Testament when he came face to face with Goliath.  This past week my wife and I have been locked in combat with the local school district.

    My oldest daughter, who is a freshman, was doing some homework last weekend and she asked me what the 5 pillars of islam were.  That's right.  This was for her AP Geography class along with 4 other questions regarding islam.  No questions like this for Christianity.

    We blew a gasket.  My wife told her not to answer the questions and she sent a scathing letter to the "coach" teacher.  Tuesday she came home and said that basically he mocked us said and we were stupid for this.  Oh, and the questions would be in the new "EOC" tests.  These are the new finals for kids in Texas so they can go to the next grade.

    Next she sent out a prayer request/info email to our contacts.  Some were teachers that agreed with us.  The next day I spoke with the principal,  who agreed with me that it was wrong.  But what could she do...It was on the state curriculum.  Pass the buck...My hands are tied....Sorry, nothing I can do....yada.....yada....yada.

    Below is the state says the school must teach.
    17 (B)
    describe major world religions, including animism, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Sikhism, and their spatial distribution; Supporting Standard
    Yesterday I went with my wife to the district WMA meeting (Baptist Womens Missionary Auxiliary).  There she put it out for a prayer request.  Those ladies literally gasped when she said that "our" schools were teaching islam, but not Christianity.

    By the time we made it home, there was a call from a local very influential family matriarch.  she had already heard about it from the WMA ladies and wanted to find out directly from my wife.  She was fired up about this.  One of her immediate family is a school board member and didn't know about this.

    One of her closing comments was "we'll see about this".

    After this I decided to contact my state rep just to see how this battle could go.  I spoke to the office manager in Dayton.  she was shocked and we discussed some of this.  She was concerned and after speaking to the rep would get back in touch with me.  Her comments were we are a very conservative district and this is BS.

    So as the day dawns, we will see what new battle presents it self.  But we will not back down on this.

    Christians, patriots, you know who you are; we must not give concessions anymore.  We have did this for many years.  NO MORE.  we must stand for what we believe in.  Fight for our Rights from the God.  Not let our children be corrupted by the scum that roams the halls of education and indoctrinates them.

    One seed.  One person.  Water it and it will grow.

    The Year I Accidentally Grew Wheat

    via Survuval

    I'd like to share a recent adventure in practical survival skills that I stumbled upon by accident. Luckily for me this was not a disaster that forced this, but instead the natural friction that occurs between man and wife. In the course of a year I grew a crop of wheat, harvested, processed, and made a loaf of bread. The adventure was that I did not start out to do any of those things! In the course of this learning experience I found out that things “everyone knows” are not, in fact, easy to find out.

    “we got drunk one night and someone made a bet.”

    Innovation at it's best.

    The drunk bet with the follow through.  They made a AR platform 50 cal muzzleloader.  LOL.  That's right.

    Yep, you read that right. As if Tactical Bacon wasn’t zany enough CMMG is making a 50 caliber muzzleloading AR-15. The main charge and projectile are loaded down the front of this 20 inch barrel, but the user needs to place a primed 5.56 case (no powder, just the primer) in the chamber to light the thing off. The gun uses a standard AR-15 bolt and bolt carrier but the gas system is inoperable, meaning you need to manually cycle the action. Ammunition is stored inside the single shot sled-like magazine block. When asked why they made such a thing, the rep replied “we got drunk one night and someone made a bet.”

    I really like CMMG products.  They have quality items at reasonable prices.

    Converting .303 British to .410 Shells

    Great tip from Down Range.  Check out his other posts.  Tons of good info.

    I like to tinker and experiment with guns and ammo. I have reloaded my own cartridges for many years am always thinking of ways to do it more efficient and save money. This would be especially helpful in a survival situation. I was recently thinking of reloading shotgun shells using the all brass cases, these would be preferable because they would last longer than plastic shells.

    I was on line looking at 12 gauge brass hulls and also saw 410 hulls for sale. They both ran about $25 for a box of 25, not too bad so I started looking at loads for 410 shells and ran across a link where 410 shells could be made from 303 British ammo. I decided making my own shells would be better that paying for them so I scrounged around and found an empty 303 cartridge and decided to experiment.

    Texas City girl wards off burglars with dad's gun

    Compliments of Your Crazy Uncle

    Another happy ending...compliments of a gun

    via The Daily News
    A 15-year-old-girl turned the tables on a pair of intruders early Saturday afternoon.

    At 12:52 p.m., Texas City police received a call from the girl saying there was somebody trying to get into her house in the 7300 block of Meadowlark.

    “She was home by herself in the bathroom and when she called — she was hysterical,” police Capt. Brian Goetschius said.

    The teen said she heard the front door jiggle and when she looked out, she saw two men standing there, Goetschius said.

    The girl called her father, her aunt and the police. Then she got her father’s handgun and went outside, Goetschius said.

    One of the men had gone into the garage and was attempting to steal a pickup. The girl did not know where the other one was.

    She confronted the man in the garage and he ran away, heading east on Meadowlark. He was followed by his accomplice, who had been inside, searching the house, Goetschius said.

    “It had been ransacked,” the captain said.

    LSW brings up a good point.  Watch for the fallout & screeching of how dare the parents have a gun that a teen has access to.

    I was listening to the so called conservative talk show host saying it might not be a good idea for a teen to use a firearm to defend herself at home. To me, she done right and never should feel ashamed about brandishing a handgun in self defense to protect her home.

    Mercs War on Drugs

    BBC (Spanish edition) via Activist Post has a article on how U.S. Department of Defense Counter-Narcoterrorism Technology Program Office (CNTPO) has transferred the war on drugs (WoD) to those PMC's.

    CNTPO issued "no bid" contracts to PMC for operations in countries that the US wages the WoD.

    The "no bid" contracts, issued under the Counter-Narcoterrorism Technology Program Office's $15 billion dollar budget, are described as "non-specific" and are said to be "juicy" for the private contractors. The Pentagon says "the details of each cost in very general contracts do not go through bidding processes."
    Not only that, but there is no Congressional oversight to keep them in check as the subcommittee's claim that the ops are secret and not public info.

    But this move is not without risk, as private mercenaries have known to operate outside of national and international laws.  "Here we go into a vague area where the rules of engagement are not clear and there is almost zero accountability to the public or the electorate," said Bagley.

    The Pentagon maintains that it's perfectly legal, and mercenaries must follow strict parameters. However, Bagley points out that "few members of the Oversight Committees of the Senate and the House are aware, but they are required to keep secret, so all this flies under the radar."

    Based on a 2009 DoDIG report , CONTPO has a history of letting these PMC's off their leash to do what they want.

    The contracting officer (CO) is the one who holds the check book.  They are the ones who are warranted and are legally authorized to obligate, financially, the Govt.  Read the report to see the details of the below.

    SMDC contracting officers and the contracting officer’s representatives (CORs) did not
    properly manage the 35 task orders reviewed, valued at $98.8 million. Specifically, the
    contracting officers did not do the following:
     Maintain complete contracting files or require all parties involved to sign memoranda of agreements.

     Properly use firm-fixed-price contract line items for 28 task orders valued at $32.5 million for de facto cost-type contracts.

     Properly use firm-fixed-price contract line items in 10 task orders for $16.1 million to buy commercial items; instead they used cost-plus-fixed-fee contract line items and could waste about $439,000.

     Properly exercise options for four task orders.

     Properly identify or manage Government-furnished property by requiring accountability for an undeterminable quantity of Government property including personal locator beacons, night-vision goggles, and encryption equipment.

     Obtain a Theater Business Clearance before contract award for six task orders
    from the Joint Contracting Command for Iraq/Afghanistan in Afghanistan.

    When I worked for the Govt, ot was in the realm of Govt. property (GP).  Govt. Furnished property (GFP) must be tracked, accounted for, inventoried, marked as GP, etc. Especially sensitive equip.  The below is from Page 16 of the report.
    The contracting officers also did not properly manage the Government-furnished property provided to contractors.  Specifically, the contracting officers either did not maintain any property records or they did not maintain complete property records for CNTPO property in the contract files. The property included personal locator beacons, night-vision goggles, and encryption equipment.
     Those who were in the service, what would your CO do if you lost one of those equipment?  You would get UCMJ'd & lose the $$$ of the acquisition cost.

    As a bonus, why do they need encrypt gear?  NV?  There is commercial gear available for them to use.  No need to use GP.

    There is a ton more in the IG report.  But it's from 2009 and the problems more than likely have not been fixed.

    These mercenaries are allowed to wage war in countries, that Big Brother doesn't want to appear that they have invaded due to political fallout, with no form or fashion of oversight/accountablility from the command that issued the contracts or from Congress.

    This should give us a clear picture of times to come CONUS.  But they will be worse.
