Second Family Says Petersburg Police Went Too Far

 

 

 

 

 

 


” Another family has come forward claiming Petersburg Police came on their front porch and tried to stop them from shooting video of arrests happening right in front of their home.

  The family reached out to the On Your Side Investigators and shared dramatic cell phone video. The incident led to a violent confrontation.

  Cell phone video shows JaQuan Fisher, 17, standing on his own front porch recording the arrests happening on Rome Street. In the video, an officer is heard saying, “Unless you want me to take your phone from you,” before there is a struggle and video goes to black.

” I was right here. I pulled out my phone,” JaQuan said, pointing to where he was standing. 

  Petersburg Police had just busted several people at a home next door. They were handcuffing the suspects in front of Fisher’s home. He walked out onto the porch and his cousin—who was one of the people being arrested–yelled, “Start recording.” “

6 Cities React To Illegal Immigrants In Their Communities

” An influx of illegal and unaccompanied immigrant children from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in U.S. border towns is causing the federal government to look elsewhere around the country to house them. But many Americans oppose the placement of illegal immigrants in their communities.”

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor Loses Virginia GOP Primary

 

 

 

 

” In a stunning upset, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost the GOP Virginia primary Tuesday night to Dave Brat, an economics professor and political novice.

  The Associated Press called the race for Cantor about an hour after polls closed at 7 p.m. ET.

  Cantor is the second-most powerful member of the U.S. House and was widely seen as the  next in line to succeed House Speaker John Boehner.

  Cantor’s loss to a political novice with little money marks a huge victory for the Tea Party movement, which supported Cantor just a few years ago.

  Brat had been a thorn in Cantor’s side on the campaign, casting the congressman as a Washington insider who isn’t conservative enough. His message apparently scored well with voters in the 7th District.

” There needs to be a change,” said Joe Mullins, who voted in Chesterfield County Tuesday. The engineering company employee said he has friends who tried to arrange town hall meetings with Cantor, who declined their invitations.

 Tiffs between the GOP’s establishment and Tea Party factions have flared in Virginia since Tea Party favorite Ken Cuccinelli lost last year’s gubernatorial race. Cantor supporters have met with stiff resistance in trying to wrest control of the state party away from Tea party enthusiasts, including in the Cantor’s home district.”

   Heh , outspent by huge margins by the establishment RINO and Tea Party backed Dave Brat still comes out ahead . I guess those reports of the death of the Tea Party must be “premature” .

U.Va. Student Sues State, ABC Agents For $40 Million

 

 

Elizabeth Daly

 

 

 

” A University of Virginia student charged last year with assaulting ABC agents attempting to stop her for underage possession beer that turned out to be sparkling water has filed a $40 million lawsuit against the state and seven agents.

  Instead of beer, a friend of Elizabeth K. Daly, now 21, had purchased a case of canned water from a Charlottesville grocery. Daly said she was terrified when plainclothes agents surrounded her car and banged on the windows ordering her to roll them down.

  After one agent drew a gun and another jumped on the car hood, she said she panicked, unsure they were really agents, and fled the scene in her car, grazing two of the agents. The charges were later dropped, and her record was expunged.”

 

 

   Regular readers may recall our post on this incident from July of last year in which her passenger’s call to 911 can be heard . Six unidentified armed men swarmed the young woman’s car over an alleged case of beer , surely in these times of busted municipal and state budgets there are better things for law enforcement to be spending their time on than scaring the crap out of a college student over sparkling water .

   Read the rest here and hope the State has to pay through the nose for their idiocy and arrogance .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Black Mobs Terrorize Victoria’s Secret Shoppers

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Some were surprised to hear about the black mob violence on Valentine’s Day at Victoria’s Secret in Norfolk, Va.

  Not at the violence: The Galleria at Military Circle has been the site of dozens of episodes of racial lawlessness over the last two years, most of which has gone unreported in the local newspaper.

  The latest example of black mob violence at the mall came on Valentine’s Day. A large group of people fought in the Victoria’s Secret store. One guy pulled out a gun and shot someone in the leg.

The victim’s aunt told a different story to WAVY- TV:

“They were just walking in the mall, and the guys came up to him and wanted to fight DaQuan and his friend,” Towanna Stovall said. “They said, ‘No we got our kids with us.’ They basically said, ‘We don’t care whether you got your kids with you or not, we are going to do this.’ They hit my goddaughter and punched her in the eye. They also jumped on DaQuan and his friend.”

” On Twitter, several people said the fight started over a pair of panties. Whatever the reason, black mob violence is a regular feature of life at this mall – and others in the area.”

US Army Builds Fake City To Shoot At During Training

 

 

 

” The US army has built a fake city designed to be used during combat training exercises.

  The 300 acre ‘town’ includes a five story embassy, a bank, a school, an underground subway and train station, a mosque, a football stadium, and a helicopter landing zone.”

 

 

     One commenter asked , ” Does it look like a middle eastern city , or an American city ? ” A very pertinent question and one that these pictures from the Telegraph help to answer . What do you think ?

 

 

The 300 acre 'town' includes a five story embassy, a bank, a school, an underground subway and train station

 

 

Looks pretty down home American to us …

 

 

” Located in Virginia, the realistic subway station comes complete with subway carriages and the train station has real train carriages.

  The subway carriages even carry the same logo as the carriages in Washington DC

  There are also bridges and several other structures which can be transformed into different scenarios.

  The $96 million is designed to meticulously “replicate complex operational environments and develop solutions“. “

 

 

    This “future battlefield” is located on the grounds of Ft AP Hill in eastern Virginia just 80 miles south of DC .

 

 

FT AP Hill

38.120609,-77.266037

     No expense was spared during the construction of the “mock city” as these photos from the construction companies involved can attest . It’s nice to know that in times of economic hardship the State is being so responsible with taxpayer funds .

 

 

   

   

 

As with everything else involving the government and it’s spending the initial budget was set at between $55 – $61 million yet ended up costing over 50% more than “expected” .

 

 

   This video from one of the contractors involved in the project gives a good overview of the kind of detail that went into the construction of the “fake city”.

” W. M. Jordan Company is providing construction services for the Asymmetric Warfare Group Training Complex at Fort AP Hill, Virginia. The $63 million complex is designed to prepare military troops in anti-terrorism exercises. Spread over 92 acres, this 25-building training facility features a mock town with various building facades, a Training and Support Center, and an indoor firing range. These training areas are connected by roads of differing qualities with various obstacles such as sand, bridges, tunnels and rough terrain in order to simulate real-world environments. “

 

 

    While we recognize the need for training in the field of asymmetrical warfare in these times of conflict with organizations other than standing armies we can’t help but feel that the expenditure of nearly $100 million dollars to build a replica American city , especially given the current administration’s demonstrably anti-American , unconstitutional proclivities , is a harbinger of terrible preparations being made by our army for operations that would surely violate the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 :

 

 

” The text of the Posse Comitatus Act, which is still in effect (as 18 U.S.C. Section 1385), reads:

  Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.

  Today, the Posse Comitatus Act has taken on a very different meaning from the one that it had in 1878. No longer associated with Reconstruction, it is a useful way to prevent the U.S. armed forces from directing their efforts against U.S. dissident groups. Public sentiment in favor of the Posse Comitatus Act is so strong that a 2006 law permitting an exception to the Act in cases of public disasters (in response to Hurricane Katrina) was repealed a year later.”

 

 

    This is an alarming development on many levels , not least of which is the idea that the US Army expects to be occupying cities , whether foreign or domestic in the near future . If the training is to be for action in foreign cities then we are obviously not about to give up on the foreign adventurism that is so contrary to our Founders ideals and if the training is for domestic operations then the patriots among us who have always held the belief that the military of all branches of the State would side with the people in defense of the Constitution .  

   While much is made of the protections afforded the citizens of the US from the use of the army against them in the Posse Comitatus Act , the real danger to our liberties embodied in this new asymmetrical warfare training center lie in the Insurrection Act of 1807 wherein Congress granted the president sweeping powers during times of “unrest” ….

 

 

” The 2007 Defense Authorization Bill, with over $500 billion allocated to the military, and which also contained the changes to the Insurrection Act of 1807, was passed by a bipartisan majority of both houses of Congress: 398-23 in the House and by unanimous consent in the Senate.[4] For military forces to be used under the provisions of the revised Insurrection Act, the following conditions must be met:

(1) The President may employ the armed forces, including the National Guard in Federal service, to–
(A) restore public order and enforce the laws of the United States when, as a result of a natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition in any State or possession of the United States, the President determines that
(i) domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of maintaining public order; and
(ii) such violence results in a condition described in paragraph (2); or
(B) suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy if such insurrection, violation, combination, or conspiracy results in a condition described in paragraph (2).
(2) A condition described in this paragraph is a condition that–
(A) so hinders the execution of the laws of a State or possession, as applicable, and of the United States within that State or possession, that any part or class of its people is deprived of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law, and the constituted authorities of that State or possession are unable, fail, or refuse to protect that right, privilege, or immunity, or to give that protection; or
(B) opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws.”

    The deck is already stacked against the supporters of Constitutionally limited government and the fact that the army saw fit to expend such huge sums of our tax-payer dollars to build a facility to train to fight a domestic war should give all who value liberty and expect the military forces of the US to behave accordingly serious pause .

McAuliffe Immediately Faces Patronage Controversy After Assuming Office

 

 

” Less than a week after taking office, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is already facing criticism for using his appointment powers as a political tool.

  On Wednesday, McAuliffe appointed consultant Boyd Marcus to one of the most lucrative patronage positions in the state government, the Alcoholic Beverages Control (ABC) board. The position is expected to pay at least $124,000 a year, according to local media sources.

  Marcus had been a campaign consultant for Republicans for decades, but unexpectedly switched sides last election. He was allegedly offered more money by the McAuliffe campaign. According to former Cuccinelli adviser Chris LaCivita, Boyd also knew the forthcoming ABC appointment was compensation for working on McAuliffe’s campaign.”

Tea Party %22Rapists%22

 

 

” In an outrageous ad aired on the local Washington D.C. NBC affiliate WRC-4, Virginia Democratic state senate candidate Jennifer Wexton – running to replace newly elected Virginia attorney general Mark Herring – made a shocking comparison between violent rapists that she once tried as a prosecutor to “Tea Party Republicans” in the Virginia legislature. [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

  After describing women being assaulted and “traumatized again by facing the criminal in court,” Wexton made this declaration: “…as a prosecutor I put violent offenders in prison. In the Virginia Senate, I’ll fight just as hard against Tea Party Republicans who would take away a woman’s health care and her right to choose, even in cases of rape and incest.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sanctuary For Wounded Warriors Gets Slapped With $10,000 Tax Bill

 

 

 

” A Virginia couple who put up $1 million and 37 acres of rural land to help brothers in arms are learning the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished.

  Ken and Julia Falke, who opened the Boulder Crest Retreat for Wounded Warriors in September, are on the receiving end of a $10,000 property tax bill from Loudoun County.

  Ken Falke told Fox News in a story broadcast Thursday that the couple — operating the site as a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization — is providing wounded veterans with services “the county can’t afford to deliver, the state can’t afford to deliver, and I guess arguably the federal government is not delivering.” “

Popularity Of ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ Plates In Virginia Suggests Tea Party Still Strong

 

 

 

 

” A Virginia license plate with the Tea Party-embraced “Don’t Tread on Me” logo is a big seller, suggesting the movement remains popular, at least in the state, even after a tough loss in this year’s gubernatorial election.

  At least five other states also sell the specialty plates: Arizona, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas. But in Virginia, the tag ranks No. 2 among such plates approved in the past five years and ninth among more than 200 total.

  The tag was issued to roughly 21,800 Virginia-registered vehicles in just the first 20 months of sales, according to state figures reported by The Virginian-Pilot newspaper.

  The sales figures for the “Don’t Tread on Me” plates indicate more than just Tea Party members are buying them, which Dwyer suggests is an indication the movement’s mantra of less-government and no new taxes resonates with many Americans.”

Bloomberg Anti-Gun Group Loses 97 Percent Of Va. Delegate Races

 

 

 

” 2013 was a lousy year for Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a group co-founded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. Despite the millions of dollars the group and Bloomberg himself contributed to support gun control laws and candidates who support them, they had little success to show for it.

Although Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ efforts helped defeat GOP gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, no one seriously expected him to win. However, of the 67 Virginia House of Delegates candidates endorsed by the National Rifle Association and targeted by Bloomberg’s group, 65 won, according to the Washington Examiner.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reading The Tea Leaves: An Historical Republican Opportunity

 

 

” Tuesday’s results were not good for folks living in New York City or Virginia. The former will be saddled with a communist sympathizer for a mayor, and the latter will have to suffer with having a crook for a governor. The most that New Yorkers can hope for is that Andrew Cuomo prevents Bill de Blasio from finally bankrupting the city. The most that Virginians can hope for is that the law finally catches up with Terry McAuliffe.

For those of us who do not reside in either place, however, there is a silver lining. Ken Cuccinelli ran a terrible campaign until very late in the game; the Republican establishment failed to give him the requisite support; and the government shutdown infuriated the federal workers living in Northern Virginia, causing them to turn out for the Democratic Party. The good news, however, is that, if he had had a week more, Cuccinelli would nonetheless have won. His surge in the last week of the campaign was a function of his decision to make Obamacare the issue on which he ran.

Had Cuccinelli won, there would be panic in Washington, and it might even have affected the White House. But he lost, and Barack Obama is nothing if not vain. This is a man who cannot admit that he made a mistake. Anyone else would have dumped the Attorney General who brought us Fast and Furious. Anyone else would have cleaned house in the State Department after Benghazi. Anyone else would have made Kathleen Sebelius jump off a cliff.”

 

The accompanying illustration says it all : ” If you can’t see freedom , you suck.” So what does that say about the GOP in recent years ? All they can sell is their souls to the lobbyists .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Terry McAuliffe Establishes Democrats As Party Of The Elites

 

 

 

” Democrat Terry McAuliffe beat Republican Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia’s governor race, outraising Cuccinelli nearly two-to-one and dominating in the richest part of the state.

First, upper-middle class, white suburbs have marched steadily toward the Democrats for several decades. Montgomery County, Md., and Arlington, Va., switched sides. So did the wealthy New York suburbs in Westchester County, N.Y., and Fairfield County, Conn. Philadelphia’s “collar counties,” once Republican bastions, are now Democratic bellwethers.

Why are the white-collar suburbs moving to the Dems? “I think it’s the social issues,” Bill DuBose tells me at Greenberry’s coffee shop in McLean.

The McLean Greenberry’s is the type of place where everyone knows the name of his state delegate. When I pulled into Greenberry’s, I parked between a Mercedes and a BMW.

Most families in McLean earn more than $200,000, according to the Census Bureau.

McLean has no use for Tea Partiers. If the Tea Party was about grabbing pitchforks and storming the castle, McLean is the castle.

McLean is the home to the ruling class. And Terry McAuliffe is the candidate of the ruling class.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Biden Decries Tea Party’s “Hostility To Science”

 

Biden Idiocy

 

” Speaking to a crowd in support of Virginia Democrat Terry McAuliffe Monday, Joe Biden once again disparaged a conservative movement about which he knows precious little.

In his effort to demonize McAuliffe’s Republican opponent in Tuesday’s gubernatorial race, Biden trashed the traditional values embodied by the Tea Party movement, implicitly describing those involved as uneducated rubes.

The statewide race “has captured the attention of the entire nation,” he said, claiming the reason is a widespread disapproval of “the new Republican tea party.”

He went on to describe the patriotic movement as one in which “social recidivism is only outgunned by its hostility to science and technology and innovation and scholarship.” “

 

   Crazy Uncle Joe must not have gotten the memo , but then again we guess it’s hard to stay informed when you spend most of your time locked in the basement .

On another note , what does it say about the dem’s confidence in their candidate if the feel the need to let Uncle Joe grab the mic ? He was certainly “without exaggeration” spreading the manure far and wide .

Libertarian Crashes The Party On Virginia’s Debate Night

 

 


” Halfway through Wednesday evening’s contentious gubernatorial debate in Virginia, a female voice asked a question that was likely going through the minds of many voters: “Can’t vote for either of these guys?”

Libertarian Robert Sarvis, who has been gaining in recent polling thanks to voters’ dissatisfaction with both of the main party candidates, ran his first 30-second television ad during the debate, touting himself as another option. Coming on the heels of more than 30 minutes of heated debate — in which Democratic nominee Terry McAuliffe accused his Republican rival, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, of supporting a social agenda that is bad for women while Cuccinelli accused McAuliffe of wanting to sell Virginia to the highest bidder — Sarvis criticized both candidates, offering Virginians a third choice.

“Like you, I can’t vote for Ken Cuccinelli’s narrow-minded social agenda. I want a Virginia that’s open-minded and welcoming to all,” Sarvis said in the spot. “And like you, I don’t want Terry McAuliffe’s cronyism either, where government picks winners and losers. Join me, and together we can build a Virginia that’s open-minded and open for business.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TERRY MCAULIFFE PLEDGES COLORADO-LIKE GUN CONTROL IF ELECTED

 

 

” In the section titled “Investing in Virginia’s Urban Centers,” TerryMcAuliffe.com now contains the heading, “Support Common Sense Gun Control Measures.”

Under that heading, it says McAuliffe “will support mainstream and majority supported gun control measures like universal background checks, limiting the size of magazines, and a return to the 1-gun-per-month rule.”

The limitation on magazine capacity is a Colorado-like gun control measure that will put law-abiding Virginians at a disadvantage the moment it is enacted. This is because criminals will not obey it but will keep their “high-capacity” magazines so they can outgun their victims. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Citizens United Spends $300K To Boost Anti-McAuliffe Film ‘Fast Terry’ In Northern Virginia

 

 

Watch the full movie at http://www.FastTerry.com.

” The 29-minute film, “Fast Terry,” was released this summer by Citizens United in the heat of McAuliffe’s (D) campaign for Virginia governor against Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R).

The documentary focuses on two recent McAuliffe business ventures: GreenTech, the electric car company he co-founded that is now under federal investigation (McAuliffe resigned as company chairman in December, and there is no evidence that he personally is under investigation), and Franklin Pellets, a wood pellet company created by McAuliffe that has yet to get off the ground.”
