Emergency Prank Draws Sheriff’s Deputies to Unsuspecting Brandon Family (New Prank – ‘Swatting’)
Emergency Prank Draws Sheriff’s Deputies to Unsuspecting Brandon Family (New Prank – ‘Swatting’):
Debora Marshall wasn’t sure what she was witnessing. She came home from work to find sheriff’s cruisers blocking streets in her sleepy Timber Pond subdivision. Deputies with guns drawn and bulletproof vests surrounded her house.
“They had it blocked off at both ends. I thought a murderer was on the loose,” she said.
So did the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities thought her son had killed her.
“My son was home and clueless,” Marshall said. “I was at work, and all my neighbors thought I was dead.”

Ron Paul Addresses Plans For ‘Civil Unrest’ Detention Camps
This is my website. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
Knowledge is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My knowledge, without me, is useless. Without my knowledge, I am useless. I must think my thoughts true. I must think straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill my way of life. I must rebuke him before he enslaves me.
My knowledge and experience confirm that what counts in this war is not the words we write, the noise of our critics, nor the smoke and mirrors of our enemy. We know that it is the minds we liberate that count. We will liberate…
My knowledge is living, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its words, its arguments, its logic, and its composition. I will ever guard it against the ravages of tyrants and oppressors as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against harm and oppression. I will keep my thoughts clear and ready. We will become part of each other. We will be one…
So be it, until victory is America‘s and there is no enemy, but liberty!

Presidential candidate responds to question about detention camps for civil unrest
Paul Joseph Watson
Saturday, August 20, 2011
In a response to a question asked by Infowars correspondent Robert Wanek at Iowa State University during the recent Ames straw poll, Ron Paul said that the federal government was preparing for civil unrest and martial law in the United States.
“Yeah, that’s their goal, they’re setting up the stage for violence in this country, no doubt about it,” responded Paul…………..
America is a country of mad people governed by buffoons. That’s the way a lot of Europeans are content to see it, no matter how much they love the US in other ways. A country of mad people because they are so religious, violent, overweight and in denial about things that look obvious from here but which the flag-wavers over there refuse to get. Governed by buffoons because, for the past half-century, from Lyndon Johnson to George W Bush, no US president was truly respected in much of this continent. Not even Reagan on the right or Clinton on the left. All of them, in various ways, were laughable.
That changed in 2008. With one mighty bound, the nation of mad people became a nation of visionaries, electing not a buffoon but an incredibly cool, incredibly smart, incredibly articulate leader who was so progressive and sensitive that, guess what, he might almost have been one of us. Except that, inconveniently, he wasn’t. But that didn’t matter. We gave him the Nobel peace prize when he’d only been in office for five minutes and drooled whenever he looked in our direction.
Now, with 15 months to go before the next US presidential election, a spectre is haunting Europe. The spectre is the possibility Barack Obama might not be re-elected. In fact it’s more than that. It’s the sense, among a lot of Europeans and a lot of progressives – US ones too – that Obama wasn’t as great as he seemed and that, as a result, he has allowed the mad people to get their act together again and prepare to elect another buffoon next November. Prejudices confirmed. Comfort zone resumed.

NEW YORK, Aug 19 (Reuters) – General Motors Co (GM.N) is seeking to dismiss a lawsuit over a suspension problem on more than 400,000 Chevrolet Impalas from the 2007 and 2008 model years, saying it should not be responsible for repairs because the flaw predated its bankruptcy.
The lawsuit, filed on June 29 by Donna Trusky of Blakely, Pennsylvania, contended that her Impala suffered from faulty rear spindle rods, causing her rear tires to wear out after just 6,000 miles. [ID:nN1E7650CT]
But in a recent filing with the U.S. District Court in Detroit, GM noted that the cars were made by its predecessor General Motors Corp, now called Motors Liquidation Co or “Old GM,” before its 2009 bankruptcy and federal bailout.

Recently, you have probably read a spate of justifiably angry Internet commentaries and watched some truly shocking and sickening videos reporting on and recording the scandal of the ever-increasing instances of senseless, sadistic rogue police brutality throughout the United States. Being provided with a badge, a gun, and a para-military uniform has apparently become a license for their holders to run amok—intimidating, threatening, terrorizing, assaulting, even killing innocent citizens.
Disquietingly, most of the thuggish culprits in the episodes that have received widespread publicity seem to have suffered little or nothing in the way of punishment that fits their wrongdoing—certainly nothing anywhere near the punishment mere “civilians” would have received for the selfsame misbehavior. There are several reasons for this appalling situation. First, police forces seem strangely reluctant to purge from their ranks, on their own initiatives and in thoroughgoing fashion, the brutal, the sadistic, the semi-moronic, and the other degenerate creatures who somehow contrive to join “the Force”—apparently, from the Dark Side—in order to acquire badges and guns wherewith to lord their misbegotten “authority” over other people, even unto killing them. Out of charity, one does not want to conclude that policemen in large numbers lack sufficient personal honor, integrity, and sense of duty to act on their own accord to clean out their own stables. Yet, the fact remains that wielding the shovels would not require the labors of Hercules, because the hard-core undesirables are relatively few, and surely are readily identifiable (especially, after all, by police trained in the latest techniques of “profiling,” reading aberrant facial expressions and body language, and so on).
So, after some notable examples were made within the ranks—and, even better, within the……………..
Facebook Removes Az. Gov. Jan Brewer’s Post Critical Of Obama:
PHOENIX (AP) – Facebook said Friday it mistakenly removed a post in which Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer criticized a controversial policy decision by President Barack Obama’s administration to limit deportations of illegal immigrants.
European royals make do with a less lavish lifestyle than the supposed citizen-executive of a so-called republic.
“I’ll work every day to try to make Washington, D.C., as inconsequential in your life as I can.”
This will be grand news to Schylar Capo, eleven years old, of Virginia, who made the mistake of rescuing a woodpecker from the jaws of a cat and nursing him back to health for a couple of days, and for her pains, was visited by a federal Fish & Wildlife gauleiter (with accompanying state troopers) who charged her with illegal transportation of a protected species and issued her a $535 fine. If the federal child-abuser has that much time on his hands, he should have charged the cat, who was illegally transporting the protected species from his gullet to his intestine.
So eleven-year-old Schylar and other middle-schoolers targeted by the micro-regulatory superstate might well appreciate Governor Perry’s pledge. But you never know, it might just catch on with the broader population, too.
Bill Clinton thought otherwise. “I got tickled by watching Governor Perry,” said the former president. “And he’s saying, ‘Oh, I’m going to Washington to make sure that the federal government stays as far away from you as possible — while I ride on Air Force One and that Marine One helicopter and go to Camp David and travel around the world and have a good time.’ I mean, this is crazy.”
This is the best argument the supposedly smartest operator in the Democratic party can muster? If Bill Clinton wants to make the increasingly and revoltingly unrepublican lifestyle of the American president a campaign issue, Governor Perry should call his bluff. If I understand correctly the justification advanced by spokesgropers for the Transport Security Administration, the reason they poke around the genitalia of three-year-old girls and make wheelchair-bound nonagenarians in the final stages of multiple sclerosis remove their diapers in public is that by doing so they have made commercial air travel the most secure environment in the United States. In that case, why can’t the president fly commercial?
You’d be surprised how many heads of state………..
Maxine Waters – “When You Unleash Us” – What does it mean?:
This clip explores what that expression, “when you unleash us,” can mean. The end times cosmology of Black Nationalists calls for a final confrontation between the black and white races, to be led by black messiahs (plural). Black Liberation Theology is a pseudo-Christian Black Nationalist doctrine that was derived in large part from that of the Nation of Islam. The Nation of Islam is a black cult-like sect, using Islam as a facade, much as Obama‘s Trinity church in Chicago fronts as a Christian church.
At least 12 officers surprised the tenants at 1135 33rdSt. NE when they arrived around 7 a.m. with a narcotics search warrant. Sgt. Cristy Hamblin, a police spokeswoman, later confirmed that nothing was seized from the house.
No one was taken to jail, but the tenants of the house, Justin Davis, 28, and his girlfriend, Erica Lewis, 26, were charged with disorderly house and signed a promise to appear in court, police said. No one was injured during the raid.
Davis said his 5-year-old daughter was in her room when officers busted a hole in the front door. He said he came to the door when he heard a K-9 unit dog barking, and was pulled outside, where he was told to lie face down in his front yard. He said the officers had him at gunpoint.
Davis was visibly upset after police left and mentioned moving out of the area.
“What do you think my neighbors think about me now?” Davis said. “My character has been assassinated, and I’m really upset about that.”
Davis said he and Lewis were handcuffed while officers searched. They were told police had information that there was drug activity at their house.
Hamblin said search warrants are issued only after a judge reviews the evidence collected and signs the warrant. In general, police investigate tips about drug activity by interviewing neighbors, looking through trash and using a drug-sniffing dog, Hamblin said.
“We don’t take just one person’s word, under normal circumstances,” Hamblin said.
Davis said he is on probation and it would be stupid for him to be involved with drugs.
“They should have made sure they had concrete evidence before they knock in someone’s door,” Davis said.
Disorderly house is described as a building or room where someone “resorted to for” illegal activity involving drugs, alcohol, gambling or prostitution, according to a city ordinance.
American Diplomat in India: Without Baths, I Get ‘Dirty and Dark’ Like You (OBAMA’s Diplomat):
Vice-Consul Maureen Chao told students: “I was on a 24-hour train trip from Delhi to [the eastern Indian state of] Orissa. But, after 72 hours, the train still did not reach the destination… and my skin became dirty and dark like the Tamilians.”
Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), who has endorsed Paul, told the Hill that “fair-minded people don’t know why Ron Paul is not given adequate press.” He pointed the finger at the “arrogance of certain people in the media who don’t think he can win.”
Jones said he was especially disappointed in the conservative-leaning press……………….
In this interview, Ron Paul inadvertently coined what should be the new slogan of his campaign.“What are they afraid of?”
He was talking about the blatant suppression by the media of any positive news about his campaign. For the few somewhat principled journalists that have admitted that it is intentional, the excuse offered has been [...]

Senate Dems to Obama: Leave Some Campaign Cash for the Rest of Us
Senate Dems to Obama: Leave Some Campaign Cash for the Rest of Us:
While an increasing number of Democrats have lately shown themselves willing to join in criticizing President Obama’s handling of the economy and unemployment, POLITICO reports that even mainstream Democrats are finding a (new, yet related) reason for perturbation with the President.
Senate Democrats are increasingly concerned that Barack Obama’s campaign money machine is sucking up so much cash that it will cut into the party’s aggressive campaign to hold on to the Senate next year, several Democratic sources say.
Democratic senators have already pressed Obama campaign officials — including campaign manager Jim Messina — not to lock up the richest Democratic donors, but the presidential campaign declined to make such a promise. …
Obama Issues Executive Order on ‘Diversity’ [no more hiring white people for fed jobs]:
President Obama issued an executive order yesterday titled, “Establishing a Coordinated Government-Wide Initiative to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Federal Workforce.” It’s quite vague, extolling the value of diversity without defining it, and setting up a “government-wide initiative” for “all agencies” that will “develop and issue a Government-wide Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan.” Details later, and the devil, of course, will be in the details.
Still, it’s bad enough already. If government personnel are told to strive for diversity, then of course they will be putting their fat thumbs on the scale to ensure a politically correct racial, ethnic, and gender mix, and that means that there will be divisive, unfair, inefficient discrimination, with the best qualified people not getting hired and promoted.

The New York Times – the newspaper that once employed Jayson Blair – today appears determined to not retract allegations made in what many believe was an error-filled hit piece on Congressman Darrell Issa, the man leading the House investigation of Operation Fast and Furious.
Through the week, Washington gun rights activists have been following the unfolding controversy, which is actually something of a sideshow to the larger controversy Issa is investigating: The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ botched gun trafficking sting that put about 2,000 guns into the hands of criminals here and in Mexico, and has accounted for deaths on both sides of the border.
Today the Daily Caller weighed in after Issa’s office yesterday demanded a retraction. Issa’s office provided the New York Times with a detailed explanation of what it considers factual errors in the story, written by reporter Eric Lichtblau. This column discussed the Times story on Issa, and another blog had this to say. Even blogger Mike Vanderboegh at Sipsey Street Irregulars is weighing in.
Suspicion is growing in the gun rights community that the Times story was aimed at discrediting Issa, focusing public attention on him and drawing it away from his Fast and Furious probe because of embarrassing revelations that taint the Obama administration. The newspaper has blasted Fast and Furious, but never appears to have strayed far from its penchant for demanding tougher gun laws. Even when it editorially criticized the ATF for the gunrunning fiasco, it also saved space to make a smarmy remark about Issa:

Barack Obama Cannot Get Congress To Pass Amnesty For Illegal Immigrants So Now He Is Just Going To Ram It Down Our Throats Any Way That He Can
Prison Planet.com � Barack Obama Cannot Get Congress To Pass Amnesty For Illegal Immigrants So Now He Is Just Going To Ram It Down Our Throats Any Way That He Can:
If you are an illegal immigrant and you have not been arrested for committing a crime, the odds that you will ever be deported have now gone way, way down. With the Republicans in control of the House of Representatives, Barack Obama knows that he simply is not going to be able to get amnesty for illegal immigrants passed by Congress. But instead of giving up, Obama has decided to ram amnesty for illegal immigrants down our throats any way that he can.
The head of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, has announced that there will now be a case-by-case review of all deportation cases involving illegal immigrants. Those involving “criminals” will be prioritized and almost all the rest will be thrown out. In essence, this is “backdoor amnesty” for illegal immigrants and it also represents a stunning admission by the Obama administration that it is simply going to refuse to enforce our immigration laws…………………….

For a small-government conservative on the presidential campaign stump like Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a new federal regulation forcing farmers to get commercial drivers licenses would make a perfect example of Barack Obama’s Washington run amok.
But there is no such regulation.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration stepped in to clarify whether the states had the right to do what Illinois had done, and on May 31, the U.S. Department of Transportation issued a public notice asking for comment on the commercial licensing of farm equipment.
Many in the farm community saw that notice as evidence that federal regulations were brewing, and the rumor went viral. That speeded up the process in Washington. Last Wednesday, the agency moved to put the issue to rest.

Col Lawrence Sellin’s Articles @ CFP ~ See Comments Top of Page…
Arpaio told the tea party leaders the complaint is within his jurisdiction, and he will be forced to investigate. He said he expects political pressure, but he pointed out that as the chief law enforcement officer of Maricopa County, he’s taken an oath to respond to citizens who approach him about enforcing the law.
It is time to raise the stakes.
We need to put the fear of God into them.
If Congress does nothing, the cost of gasoline will drop 14 cents per gallon on Sept. 30. That not only would be a boon to consumers oppressed by hefty prices at the pump but also would go a long way toward ending one of Washington’s favorite accounting gimmicks. The public is supposed to think the 18.4 cents tossed to Uncle Sam for every gallon of unleaded (24.4 cents for diesel) goes to roads and bridges. Fifty-five years ago, it was true that the 3-cent-per-gallon levy went directly into the concrete and steel that gave us the Interstate Highway System. The authorization for most of the current tax expires next month, and Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist fears President Obama will use jobs as an excuse to boost this tax. “His plan is going to be the highway bill,” Mr. Norquist said in an editorial board meeting at The Washington Times. “Everyone wants highways, but you give them the money, they don’t build highways. They build everything but highways.” Out of the $29 billion in fuel-tax revenue collected this year, the Congressional Budget Office estimated $7.6 billion would be diverted into mass-transit projects. That is only part of the problem. One look at the Federal Highway Administration’s budget shows core spending priorities in the “highway” account frequently have nothing to do with highways. For example, the agency allocates $6.8 billion to a “livable communities” program designed to promote a leftist anything-but-the-automobile agenda. Another $8.9 billion will be blown on “environmental sustainability” schemes, and $2.5 billion will go to safety – that’s the code word for paying local cops overtime to set up speed traps and East German-style roadblocks…more
