Smashing Pumpkins In Clayton Leads To Three Arrests For Littering, Assault

 

 

Pumpkins smashed out

 

 

 

” Three people were arrested Monday afternoon during a protest that briefly linked the unrest in Ferguson to the violence that erupted last Friday at a New Hampshire Pumpkin Festival.

  The arrests occurred after approximately 10 demonstrators approached the St. Louis County Justice Center with a red wagon filled with pumpkins scrawled with slogans denouncing “RACISM,” “WHITE PRIVILEGE,” and “HATE.”

  Authorities took protest organizer Derek Laney into custody after he held a pumpkin overhead and decried the shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson police before smashing it at the feet of officers stationed about 10 feet from the Justice Center door.

  The pumpkin bore the words “POLICE BRUTALITY.”

” We are going to smash (pumpkins) symbolically at the foot of someone who can bring (the Brown) case to justice,” Laney said prior to his arrest in a reference to St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch, whose office is in the building. “It’s another way to let people know we will be heard.” “

   While it is becoming more evident that the shooting of Michael Brown was a “justified” use of force , these protesters still had a right to their free speech . Since when is it illegal to smash your own pumpkins ?     

   As to the littering charge , if the “litterers” hadn’t left the scene leaving a mess behind then who is to say they weren’t going to clean up after themselves . The assault charges are also easily trumped up as anytime a police officer grabs you and you pull away , as is a natural reaction , you are liable to be charged with resisting arrest and assault . We cry Bulls**t on this one .

What It Looks Like When A 10-Year-Old Girl’s Gun Marksmanship Blows Away Competition

 

 

 

 

” Her name is Shyanne Roberts, and she’s a gunslinging 10-year-old from Franklinville, New Jersey, who’s just won a spot to compete as an adult in a big shooting competition.

  Shyanne will be competing against 200 women at the Lady 3 Gun Pro Am Challenge in Georgia at the end of the month. She’ll be handling a rifle, shot gun and hand gun in the competition.

  She told CNN she wants to use her skills to inspire other kids.

  I want to be an inspiration to other kids and be a leader. Kids and guns don’t always mean bad things happen.

  As you’ve probably figured out, Shyanne can skillfully handle all types of guns, including an AR 15 she built herself. “

How Asset Forfeiture Allows Cops To Steal From Citizens

 

 

 

 

” It probably seemed like a bright idea at the time: Let the police seize the ill-gotten gains of alleged drug dealers and other suspected criminals and sell it, using the proceeds to buy much-needed crime-fighting gear.

  Unfortunately, the process—civil asset forfeiture—did not require convicting anybody of a crime. In fact, it didn’t even require charging anybody with a crime. Not surprisingly, this led to rampant abuse, which has been abundantly documented for many years. Various reform efforts, including a 2000 federal law, have been unable to stop what’s become known as policing for profit.

  But Virginia lawmaker Mark Cole is going to give it another shot. That’s as good a sign as any that civil asset forfeiture has jumped the shark. “

 

 

  We wish Mr Cole good luck . Legalized theft , aka civil asset forfeiture , is an abuse that is completely incompatible with the spirit of America as well as being blatantly unconstitutional .

Cook County Ballot Box Tries To Cast GOP Votes For Democrats

 

 

” Early Voting in Illinois got off to its typical start Monday, as votes being cast for Republican candidates were transformed into votes for Democrats.

  Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library.

“ I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan said. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

  The conservative website Illinois Review reported that “While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race. He notified the election judge at his polling place and demonstrated that it continued to cast a vote for the opposing candidate’s party. Moynihan was eventually allowed to vote for Republican candidates, including his own race. “

850 Voters In NYC Are Officially 164 Years Old

 

 

Funny , she doesn’t look a day over 103 .

 

 

” A single Bronx voter listed in official records as being 164 years old led Board of Elections officials to review their files — where they turned up another 849 New Yorkers who were supposedly alive when Abe Lincoln was president.

  The stunning discovery came after The Post reported last week that the birth date of Luz Pabellon, a spry 73-year-old who has been living and voting in The Bronx since the 1970s, was recorded as Jan. 1, 1850.

  This week, a search of the records in all five boroughs found 849 more voters with the same wacky birth date.

  Board officials chalked up the implausible age snafu to previous practices that allowed residents not to provide their exact birthdays when registering to vote.

  Some of the new voters — mostly women — simply wrote that they were “21+” — above the legal voting age.

  There was a reason to be vague. Voter registration records are open to the public, so anyone with the inclination can discover the real age of anyone in the files.

“ It’s a leftover vestige from a bygone era,” explained Board of Elections executive director Mike Ryan.

“ They were all listed as age 164. This was no accident. It’s a little quirk in the system. It’s not widespread,” he added, noting there are more than 4 million registered voters. “

The “Border States Of America” With Nick Searcy

 

 

 

Published on Oct 16, 2014

” Please visit www.BorderStatesOfAmerica.com for more information about this film.

  An unprecedented wave of illegal immigration is washing over America, threatening the fabric of our nation. But the Obama Administration refuses to enforce our immigration laws, resulting in tens of thousands of people illegally entering the US. Now, our new film reveals the full scope of this crisis.

  The Border States of America takes viewers from the Rio Grande Valley to towns across the country, telling the story of human smugglers and drug cartels who profit from Obama’s policies; of American citizens whose lives are put at risk; and the social and economic toll on our communities. We cut through the fog to bring you the truth about what is really happening with the border crisis.

  Television and film star Nick Searcy has come on board to narrate The Border States of America. He is an accomplished actor, director, and producer with a career spanning more than 30 years in cinema, television, and on the stage. With dozens of starring and supporting roles across a wide range of feature films and TV shows under his belt, we couldn’t be more excited to have him help tell this story.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blues Guitar Documentary – “Busking The Blues” Starring Keni Lee Burgess

 

 

 

Published on Jan 18, 2013

” I shot this film almost 3 years ago! Keni Lee Burgess, who has loads of guitar tutorials here on youtube, allowed me to follow him around the streets and subways of Manhattan to document his lifestyle, that being a busker.

  I was so incredibly lucky that I was able to make contact with the son of the inventor of the resonator guitar John E Dopyera. Although the film was super fun to make, the end result from a film makers stand point is that I wasn’t happy with the video quality. I shot on a miniDV camera, wish I had an HD at that time but couldn’t afford one.

  Please enjoy the film. Feel free to leave feed back. Please visit kenilee burgess here on youtube.

The Guerilla Filmmaker Has Exposed How Voter Fraud Is Both Easy And Condoned In Colorado

 

 

 

 

” Many liberals are adamant there is no threat of voter fraud that justifies efforts to improve the integrity of elections. “There is no real concrete evidence of voter fraud,” tweeted Donna Brazile, former acting chair of the Democratic National Committee, this week. “It’s a big ass lie.”

  James O’Keefe, the guerilla filmmaker who brought down the ACORN voter-registration fraudsters in 2010 and forced the resignation of NPR executives, politely disagrees. Today, he is releasing some new undercover footage that raises disturbing questions about ballot integrity in Colorado, the site of fiercely contested races for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, and the governorship. When he raised the issue of filling out some of the unused ballots that are mailed to every household in the state this month, he was told by Meredith Hicks, the director of Work for Progress, a liberal group funded by Democratic Super PACS.: “That is not even like lying or something, if someone throws out a ballot, like if you want to fill it out you should do it.” She then brazenly offered O’Keefe, disguised as a middle-aged college instructor, a job with her group. “

” Shots rang through the air Wednesday morning in Ottawa as multiple gunmen opened fire on Parliament Hill.

  At least two people were shot, including a solider who was standing guard at the cenotaph at the War Memorial in the city’s downtown.

  Incidents spread across three locations: the War Memorial, Centre Block and the Rideau Centre mall, located kitty corner from the Chateau Laurier. Buildings in downtown Ottawa were locked down.

” A Canadian soldier was shot at a war memorial in Ottawa this morning. Parliament Hill then went into lockdown, two other shootings in the area have been reported, one alleged shooter has been killed, and there are reports of other gunmen at large. Beyond that, the facts are pretty cloudy. For a sense of the chaos, here’s some footage of police firing their weapons during a sweep of a Parliament building. The video was shot by The Globe and Mail‘s Josh Wingrove. “

Aimpoint Launches Affordable New ‘Carbine Optic’ Red Dot

 

 

 

” Aimpoint is getting into the entry-level market — entry level for Aimpoint, anyway — with its new ACO red dot sight. The ACO, or Aimpoint Carbine Optic, is tailored for the “black rifle” crowd, AR-15s in particular.

  The design draws on some of Aimpoints existing products, chiefly the Aimpoint PRO, the company’s previous entry-level optic, and delivers on the ruggedness and reliability the market has come to respect from Aimpoint, just at a more approachable price.

  With an MSRP of $393, the ACO is sure to be a hit with rifle owners of all stripes looking for a non-magnified optic. Realistically the sight will have a significantly lower retail price when it hits shelves later this October.

“ By choosing this optic, shooters get a premium Aimpoint sight at an extremely friendly price point. If you own an AR-15 rifle, the ACO is exactly what you need to complete the package,” Brian Lisankie, Aimpoint’s president, said in a press release. “

Trial Lawyer Industry Tries To Buy A Democratic Majority

 

 

Lawyers Political Contributions

 

 

 

” If you follow the money in the 2014 election — if you look past the audacious nine figures of liberal billionaire Tom Steyer, and past the well-heeled tentacles of the Kochtopus, and past Karl Rove and Harry Reid — you will find a little-noted major player in the battle to control the U.S. Senate: trial lawyers.

  Lawyers and law firms have given more money to House and Senate candidates and party committees than any other industry, with an overwhelming majority going to Democrats.

  Lawyers are top donors in all of the most competitive Senate races. The top lawyer lobby in Washington is a leading bundler and PAC donor for the Democrats’ official and unofficial campaign committees.

  Ironically, despite all these tens of millions in lawyer dollars trying to keep the Senate in friendly hands, it could be the industry’s unpopularity that hands the U.S. Senate to Republicans.

  Trial lawyers love Democrats because Democrats advance policies that help trial lawyers make money. More regulation and more legislation often means more litigation. Democrats oppose tort reform, while Republicans — encouraged by the business lobby — support tort reform. Democrats push laws such as the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act that create all sorts of legal ambiguities and liabilities, which yields profits for lawyers. “
