Jose Guereña died May 5th, during a raid at his southwest side home, reportedly after he pointed a rifle at officers. The team fired 71-shots in all, nearly two dozen hit the former marine. Weeks later court documents tied Guereña to a drug trafficking ring; something the family’s attorney said isn’t true.
Originally the Guerena family filed an intent to sue hoping to get a $20-million settlement. That never happened so the official lawsuit was filed by their attorney and in it, 14 different people and agencies were named including Pima County, the Town of Marana, Town of Sahuarita and each individual SWAT member involved.
The Guerena family attorney Chris Scileppi said, the lawsuit is all about negligence ranging from signing the original search warrant, to the shooting itself and a lack medical attention shortly afterwards.
It won’t bring Jose Guerena back, but Scillepi said it will help the family. He said, “Vanessa, Jose, and Joel have suffered immense lose from the death of their husband and father. This lawsuit seeks in part to make them whole.”
But the SWAT team’s attorney Mike Storie said the claims in the lawsuit aren’t even close to true.
Storie said, “The claims that there was negligence or will full misconduct is absolutely ridicules and to say that any one of them was negligent in their duties is just showing ignorance in police policy.”
And with those extreme differences it’s almost certain to go to trial; something both sides said they’re ok with.
Scileppi said, “They’ve been not providing information we’ve requested. Litigation gives us the power to subpoena these records, subpoena the documents and people who we need to find out everything we need to find out so that 1. This case can go forward with litigation and 2. This never happens again.”
Storie on the other hand said, “This was all about a man who made bad choices and when you make bad choices to men who are armed, uniformed, and there for a lawful reason, bad things are going to happen.”
Graham, America’s most famous preacher, turns 93

RALEIGH, North Carolina — For the Rev. Billy Graham, America’s most famous evangelist across a career that lasted some six decades, the prospect of old age and death was for a long time something he tried not to think about, despite his convictions about the eternity that awaits human beings.
“I fought growing old in every way,” Graham, who turns 93 on Monday, writes in the newly-published “Nearing Home,” a book that ranges from Scripture quotations about the end of life to basic advice on financial planning. “I faithfully exercised and was careful to pace myself as I began to feel the grasp of Old Man Time. This was not a transition that I welcomed, and I began to dread what I knew would follow.”

Obama’s Illegal Aunt: “You Have The Obligation to Make Me a Citizen”
…What gives? Simply put, it’s been our failure by reelecting incompetents year after year: Ron Paul, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, and all the other career politicians who’ve never cared one iota about their constituents but just about stroking their own egos…..
…We are paying the ultimate price for not being energy-efficient and energy-independent. Who do you think was the largest legal contributor to Obama’s campaign? Ever wonder why the largest ecological disaster in the history of the human race (Gulf of Mexico) has been kept quiet? Can you imagine a direct connection between the two?
Editor’s note: This is another in a series of “WND/WENZEL POLLS” conducted exclusively for WND by the public-opinion research and media consulting company Wenzel Strategies.
The newest poll about the 2012 presidential election says one-third of Democrats and independents who lean to the left side of the field are unhappy with Barack Obama as the party’s standard-bearer and are looking for some new faces to enter the race
The startling results are from the newest WND/Wenzel Poll conducted by Wenzel Strategies. The telephone survey was conducted Oct. 22-25 and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
Responding to a question about how satisfied they are with Obama as the nominee, only 55 percent said they were very satisfied. Another 24 percent said they were somewhat satisfied, but that group apparently started falling away quickly, because fully one-third (35 percent) said that would “prefer that someone else enter the race” for the nomination.
Just what’s going on in Washington? See it in”Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies“
It revealed some key demographics where Obama is failing to convince voters of his value.
“Among Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents, just 79 percent said they are satisfied with Barack Obama as their standard bearer in the presidential race, which is a startling finding,” said Fritz Wenzel, chief of Wenzel Strategies.

Barack Obama accused of smoking crack rock cocaine and homosexual activity with Larry Sinclair. Sinclair Alleges that in 1999, He and Barack Obama Shared Gay Sex and Cocaine
Sinclair has since agreed to a polygraph, challenged Obama to do the same
The Mainstream Press has Remained Monolithically Mute
The internet is abuzz with an ongoing story where a man alleges he and Senator Barack Obama had gay sex and did illegal drugs in 1999. While the MSM is aware of this story, no one in the MSM has touched it with a ten foot pole.
Is this yet another non-story where the MSM, as watchdogs, decide not to report it? Or is the story about the MSM itself, that the MSM is withholding a potentially damaging report about a popular candidate running in the 2008 election for its own convoluted reasons?
While the MSM continues to ignore this story, the internet has taken up the slack, various blogs have reported on Sinclair and his claims of his illicit involvement with Senator Obama

The debate over spending among Republicans in Congress has become so intense that one Senate Republican leader has started wearing a flak jacket to meetings.
He said he would don the protective gear after Rep. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), an outspoken conservative, blasted him in a meeting for arguing that Congress had already made substantial reductions in discretionary spending.
Coburn objected heatedly. He argued that slowing the rate of discretionary spending growth is not the same as cutting spending, according to sources. Senate aides say that conservatives including Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) agree with Coburn’s point of view.

Addressing the reorganization, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, said: “We will be able to strengthen oversight of the companies that develop our nation’s energy resources.” He addressed a perceived conflict of interest between departments due to the leasing and regulatory functions being in one agency—one brings in revenue and one regulates (and perhaps punishes) the businesses generating the income.
His mid-May 2010 actions bring his new Secretarial Order to reorganize a different agency into question.
On October 26, 2011, Secretary Salazar signed Secretarial Order 3315 that will consolidate the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM) within the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
The Order states that “fee collections” and “regulation, inspection and enforcement, and state program oversight” will now be integrated—the very tasks split out within the MMS reorganization.
Book burning in America: a tale of Nu Skin

There are moments in a person’s life that shake you to your foundation, that cause you to rethink everything you think you know, moments that hit like a two by four upside your head. Just such moment arrived for me late on a Friday afternoon.
A friend of mine, let’s call him Adam, since that’s his name, has self-published a book, Formerly Filthy Rich, My Scandalous Life with a Billionaire Cougar. . . .
Now his book is at the very least R-rated, and it’s an account of his six year marriage to Nu Skin co-founder Sandie Tillotson. Nu Skin, for those of you who don’t know, is a multi-level marketing company which sells skin care and nutrition products through a network of independent distributors.
Nu Skin thinks he knows too much, or at the very least says too much, and on this particular Friday afternoon used its team of lawyers to shut down distribution of Formerly Filthy Rich by Barnes & Noble and Amazon. Let me say that another way, in case you missed it: they got the book banned. A figurative burning of a book, but in the world of electronic publishing a burning none the less. A burning worthy of Nazi Germany, or Fahrenheit 451. Book burning and censorship in America, friends. . .

White House: There’s no sign of E.T. or UFO cover-up
Posted on Sunday, November 06, 2011 2:27:39 PM by BenLurkin
The White House has responded to two petitions asking the U.S. government to acknowledge formally that aliens have visited Earth and to disclose any intentional withholding of government interactions with extraterrestrial beings.
“The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race,” Phil Larson from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy reported on the WhiteHouse.gov website.”In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye.”
The petition calling on the government to disclose any knowledge of or communication with extraterrestrial beings was signed by 5,387 people, and 12,078 signed the request for a formal acknowledgement from the White House that extraterrestrials have been engaging the human race.
These petitions were sparked by an Obama administration initiative called “We the People.” Initially, the White House said staffers would respond and consider taking action on any issue that received at least 5,000 online signatures within 30 days. The requirement has since been raised to 25,000 signatures.
Larson stressed that the facts show there is no credible evidence of extraterrestrial presence here on Earth.

Obama’s response: “I just want you to know that we are working on it. We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

As all political junkies, we are all following what’s going on in the Republican Party. Also the left’s attempt to do what the Tea Party did in 2010, with the Occupied Wall Street hypocrisy.
The Daily Bell – Ingo Bischoff on Why Land Cannot Be Owned, Why the Federal Reserve Was “Good” Once and What Needs to Be Done to ‘Take Back’ America
Daily Bell: You have praised Ben Franklin’s Philadelphia bank. Was its currency backed by gold? Is it true that this bank used only Real Bills against which to create its currency, the Pennsylvania Pound?
Ingo Bischoff: The Bank of Philadelphia discounted Real Bills against the payment of coin which circulated in North America. They were of British, French, Dutch and Spanish origin. The bank collected the discount to the face value upon maturity. The Pennsylvania Pound bank note did not promise redemption in monetary coin to support confidence in its value. Because of the lack of gold or silver mines in colonial America, there were no “colonial” coins. The coins in circulation were those of Britain or other sovereigns. The value of the Pennsylvania Pound was derived entirely from the reputation of the principals of the bank, of which Benjamin Franklin was one and George Clymer, as president of the bank, was another. Despite the lack of redemption promise, the impeccable and honest way in which the Bank of Philadelphia was run caused the value of the Pennsylvania Pound never to drop below the value of monetary coin. This remarkable fact was cited by Adam Smith in his book The Wealth of Nations, published in 1776.
I do not see a contradiction in my logic when I praise the Bank of Philadelphia for adhering to the Real Bills “Doctrine” without promising redemption in monetary coin. The Real Bills “Doctrine” only requires that the value of bank notes in circulation always match the value of un-matured Real Bills held by the bank. I am sure that in the case of the Bank of Pennsylvania this was the case at all times.

The First Amendment does not guarantee the right to trash a Whole Foods store.
The First Amendment does not guarantee the right to “occupy” a public place.
I’m going to say something that some may find controversial. I’m going to say something that should have been said weeks ago. I’m going to say what needs to be said about the “Occupy Wall Street” barbarians.

Internet Freedom Threatened – by Stephen Lendman
Candidate Obama promised to “(s)upport the principle of network neutrality to preserve the benefits of open competition on the Internet.”
As president, his FCC and congressional extremists threaten it. On May 12, Senator Amy Klobuchar (D. MN) introduced “S. 978: A bill to amend the criminal penalty provision for criminal infringement of a copyright, and for other purposes.”
Referred to the Judiciary Committee, June 22 hearings were held. So far, no further action was taken. If enacted, loosely defined unlicensed online streaming becomes illegal, punishable by up to five years in prison.
President of the Protesters?

What happens to a U.S. President when he aligns himself with civil unrest? Barack Obama’s pledge to the occupy protesters that he is “on their side” is – to use the President’s word of choice to describe himself – “unprecedented.” Where this association takes him and his fellow Democrats will be very interesting to watch.
American history is replete with corruption and legally questionable behavior at the White House, much of which pre-dates those of us who are alive today. President Andrew Jackson, for example, was caught transferring taxpayer money out of federal coffers and “investing” it into private banks that were owned by his campaign donors.

Stopping the media’s attacks on conservatives

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, traditionally is a huge retail money maker, but the Sunday ads before the Thanksgiving Holiday are the media money makers.
No longer can we sit by silently and watch the media attack and destroy another decent, winning candidate we like. These vicious attacks on Herman Cain are parallels to the unfair meanness shown Sarah Palin.
Who can forget the Katie Couric display or Charlie Gibson looking down the bridge of this nose? Why do we keep letting the liberal Democrat media types in print, television, and on the web destroy our candidates while we just react?
A boycott of media buys that hits their corporate offices in the pocket books will send a much louder message than any letters to the editor or emails to the “contact us” sites on television message boards.
Just say no; do not buy any newspapers on Sunday, November 20. Turn off the political ghetto on Sunday morning that day. Don’t give a hit to any liberal political web sites.
Here are some other tips for dealing with their continual assaults against anyone who poses an existential threat to their agenda candidate, Barack Obama. (Remember when Michelle said during their ’08 campaign: “We’ve got the Media?”).
Someone with the money and know how to ought to set up a Truth in Journalism website and hire competent opposition researchers (op re) to post only legal documents and citations of the reporters and editors that byline these liberal attacks on conservative candidates.

Corporate Collaborators … Mark Steyn ~ at the Democratic Convention in Chicago, Mayor Daley declared that his forces were there to “preserve disorder.”

Way back in 1968, after the riots at the Democratic Convention in Chicago, Mayor Daley declared that his forces were there to “preserve disorder.” I believe that was one of Hizzoner’s famous malapropisms. Forty-three years later Jean Quan, mayor of Oakland, and the Oakland city council have made “preserving disorder” the official municipal policy. On Wednesday, the “Occupy Oakland” occupiers rampaged through the city, shutting down the nation’s fifth-busiest port, forcing stores to close, terrorizing those residents foolish enough to commit the reactionary crime of “shopping,” destroying ATMs, spraying the Christ the Light Cathedral with the insightful observation “F**k,” etc. And how did the Oakland city council react? The following day they considered a resolution to express their support for “Occupy Oakland” and to call on the city administration to “collaborate with protesters.”
That’s “collaborate” in the Nazi-occupied-France sense: The city’s feckless political class are collaborating with anarchists against the taxpayers who maintain them in their sinecures. They’re not the only ones. When the rumor spread that the Whole Foods store, of all unlikely corporate villains, had threatened to fire employees who participated in the protest, the regional president, David Lannon, took to Facebook: “We totally support our Team Members participating in the General Strike today — rumors are false!” But, despite his “total support,” they trashed his store anyway, breaking windows and spraypainting walls. As the Oakland Tribune reported:
A man who witnessed the Whole Foods attack, but asked not to be identified, said he was in the store buying an organic orange when the crowd arrived.

U.S. officials are concerned that Israel will not warn them before taking military action against Iran’s nuclear facilities, a senior U.S. military official said Friday.
The official, who asked to remain anonymous, told the CNN network that although in the past, U.S. officials thought they would receive warning from Israel if it did take military action against Iran, “now that doesn’t seem so ironclad.”
The U.S. is “absolutley” concerned that Israel is preparing an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, and this concern is increasing, CNN reported the official as saying.

During a political career that touched four decades and includes more than 20 years in elected office, former South Dakota Gov. Bill Janklow shaped his own legacy with bold ideas, a powerful personality and a political philosophy that often defied traditional labels.
Some saw the Republican, who announced Friday that he has terminal brain cancer, as conservative. Others said he was a populist. And still others said his political shape-shifting to fit the problem at hand transcended politics entirely.

…Two schools of thought run through Republican circles. One holds that Romney is the logical nominee and will consolidate the party’s somewhat grudging support after conservatives stop flirting with longshots such as Bachmann and Cain. Republicans have a history of nominating the runner-up from previous primaries, and Romney fits that bill.
The competing theory holds that Americans are angrier at government and the two parties than political pros realize, and the tea party is just the start of a potent, long-lasting movement. Under this scenario, Romney can never placate conservative voters because of his establishment ties and the more liberal positions he once held on abortion, gay rights and gun control.
A New President, and a Union’s Last Stand (Reagan and PATCO)

FOR 30 years, Ronald Reagan’s breaking of the federal air traffic controller strike has often been seen as a turning point in United States history, the moment when labor unions began an inexorable decline and when political conservatism came of age.
The columnist George Will celebrated the defeated strike as a sign that years of liberal permissiveness had ended. “In a sense,” he wrote, “the ’60s ended in August 1981.”
A kind of myth has arisen — that the Reagan administration had this all planned, that it lured the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization, or Patco, into a trap so that it could be demolished. But as Joseph A. McCartin writes in his excellent history of the strike, “Collision Course: Ronald Reagan, the Air Traffic Controllers, and the Strike That Changed America,” (Oxford University Press), nothing could be further from the truth.
The book says that the Ronald Reagan of early 1981 was no union buster, that he had been reaching out for union support and that, in Patco’s case, he agreed to grant concessions more plentiful than any ever granted to a public employee union by an American president. It was Patco’s hubris, contends Mr. McCartin, an associate professor of history at Georgetown University, that forced Mr. Reagan’s hand and led to the union’s subsequent implosion.
“Collision Course” charts the rise of Patco and other public-sector unions over the course of 20 years, from the moment that President John F. Kennedy allowed government workers to bargain collectively.
Judge Edward Tenney followed a recent First Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Boston in Glik v. Cunniffe in ruling that William Alleman was within his constitutional rights when making an audio recording of Weare Police Officer Brandon Montplaisir during the traffic stop on July 10, 2010.
The recording was made via cellphone when Alleman called Porcupine 911, an answering service for libertarian activists, as the officer approached Alleman’s car. Though the charge was not filed until the following February, Alleman’s attorney, Seth Hipple, told The New American on Thursday that the officer was aware at the time he was being recorded and told Alleman that it was illegal to record him without his permission.
Congressman: Science ‘czar’ giving China U.S. technology

A congressman says he’s alarmed that President Obama’s science “czar,” John Holdren, apparently has been collaborating with the Chinese even though Congress specifically prohibited that activity in a bill signed into law by his boss, Obama.
The accusations from U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf. R-Va., came this week in a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.
The committee was listening to testimony about China’s espionage in the United States and “the violation of the law by the director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy.”
Wolf noted he opposed the idea that the U.S. should work with China in any way regarding that nation’s space program.
“The Chinese space program is being led by the People’s Liberation Army, and to state the obvious, the PLA is not our friend as evidenced by their recent military posture and aggressive espionage against U.S. agencies and firms,” Wolf said.
