” The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that a former air marshal can seek whistleblower protections for disclosing sensitive information to the news media about the absence of security officers on certain flights.
On a 7-2 vote, the court rejected arguments made by President Barack Obama’s administration, which was seeking to reverse an appeals court ruling favoring whistleblower Robert MacLean, who was fired for the 2003 leak.
” I believe the ruling will give other federal employees more confidence to expose wrongdoing,” MacLean, who was fired in 2006 and now works in residential construction management in California, said in an interview.
The legal question was whether MacLean’s actions may be protected by the U.S. Whistleblower Protection Act, a law that protects employees if a disclosure exposes unlawful conduct, gross mismanagement or threats to public safety.
In an opinion by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court concluded that U.S. Transportation Security Administration regulations that prohibited MacLean’s disclosures did not have sufficient legal force to bar him from receiving protections under the Whistleblower Protection Act.”
As With All Things Progressive It All Depends On What The Meaning Of “Is” Is
By now everyone has heard of the latest effort from Nanny Bloomberg as the astroturfers in the liberal media regarding the epidemic of “school shootings” since Sandy Hook . 74 of them if the usual suspects are to be believed . Since this meme seems to be spreading like wildfire across the web we thought we would make a concerted effort to quantify exactly what the gun grabber Statists consider to be “school shootings” .
Below is our result . Make of it what you will and please understand that by quibbling with the Statist’s methodology we are in no way minimizing the pain and horror felt by the families that are made to suffer at the hands of thugs with guns . However , all sympathies aside , that does not grant the Left license to twist the English language to their will .
Let us start by saying that in our minds a school shooting at least as they have come to be understood is an incident where an disgruntled individual , whether it be student or adult enters a place of education with the intent to “avenge wrongs” however warped or imagined they may be by killing and maiming as many students and/or faculty as possible , usually before taking their own lives .
If that definition is acceptable it stands to reason that other types of shootings , whatever the reason , are not exactly honest comparisons to “going postal” . That means that common robberies , suicides , arguments over games , debts , girlfriends and what have you should be categorized as what they truly are , at least to those without an agenda , crimes , plain old ordinary , violent crimes .
That being the case , Everytown’s map is very misleading to say the least , and downright deceitful to be perfectly honest.We took they time to explore every single incident included on Bloomy’s map and provide the reader with a synopsis of the fatalities/injuries links to the sources and a diagnosis of the type of shooting that each incident represents .
Below is our result , survey the data , follow the links , bookmark the page and feel free to use these facts in any refutation you might need to defend against the Statists in your sphere of influence . At the end we have provided an approximate count on the actual school shootings that meet our above mentioned criteria along with what we feel are “other” categories … ie , robbery , suicide , lovers spats , gang violence , accidental discharges , fights that escalate to arms , etc .

There is your data . As you can see each alleged “school shooting” from the infamous map , as defined by Bloomberg & Co is represented with a link to a legitimate news story about the incident . Two incidents claimed by the map were unable to be corroborated by yours truly and so that brings the count to 72 alleged incidents .
Of those 72 “school shootings” we can only count 8 as meeting our criteria as far as being as school shooting in the Columbine/Sandy Hook interpretation . Of course none of them come anywhere near the horror of those but that is an argument for another day .
Of the 64 incidents left our count leads us to the following statistics :
Gang related/Drive-by – 3
Robbery/Crime – 6
Fights – 13
Suicides – 10
Personal – 8
After Hours/Proximity To School – 12
Accidental Discharges/Irresponsible Shooting/Stray Bullets – 10
Self-Defense – 2
The death toll for all of these shootings combined compares to the average weekend in Chicago at 31 fatalities . Of those thirty one lost lives ten were non-students who were found/killed on school property after hours , eight were suicides , three were the perpetrators themselves and one was a criminal killed in self-defense which leaves nine students and/or teachers killed .
It goes without saying that any loss of life is a tragedy but at the same time it is just as unseemly to dishonestly climb atop the graves of these unfortunate lost souls and attempt to gain cheap political points in order to further one’s personal agenda and that is what is taking place here .
Bloomberg and his allies , like the progressives in general , are attempting to tug at the heartstrings and push their legislative goals wrapped as a moral imperative that is not to be questioned under pain of being called uncaring . It’s just another card out of the “racist” deck cavalry . Whenever they are losing an argument on the merits they jump up , knock the cards from the table and cry “have you no decency” ?
Just an aside before we leave you . The number of children that die at the hands of their parents every year in America dwarves the numbers above . Yes , you read correctly . It is estimated that somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 children under the age of five are killed each year by their parents . Think about that before deciding that school shootings are some sort of epidemic .
” Dear Rep. Trey Gowdy,
I probably speak on behalf of many (millions?) of American citizens when I say I am most happy at the US House of Reps. forming a select committee to fully investigate Benghazi.
However, right from the get-go, I have reservations on what the intended outcome of this committee will be. You see, I don’t trust most folks in Washington, Deceit.
Will House Speaker John Boehner make a premeditated political show of this thing by reverse engineering it to appear to seek the truth in Benghazi, but actually just produce nothing but Republican-advantageous noise and prosperous backroom deals all during this 2014 election year?
So, the charter or mission statement and limits of jurisdiction and judicial empowerment of said committee must be disclosed up front to all Americans to see for themselves if the stated mission is to be a noble-full-weight-of–the–law mission or a theatrical-no-one-will-be-punished mission, especially if Boehner and his pals risk being indicted for his involvement in any Benghazi-associated cover-up.
If we fast forward to the year 2017 and see Barry Soetoro-Obama retiring with a hefty pension, hefty health care package, hefty Security coverage, new Obama Presidential Library, and lucrative speaking engagements instead of rotting in a jail cell for any convicted treasonous involvement with the Benghazi murders, then we will know. And my grandson in the year 2074 will know when he is my age, that this so-called select committee never intended to find the whole truth and never intended from the get-go to punish anyone involved in Benghazi….and America just drifts out to sea as a lawless, immoral disheveled ship of state.
Here are some things I expect to see as a natural-born American taxpayer:
1) You pretty much set up the mission and have free-reign to prosecute like the trained and experienced professional you are; let the cards fall where they may and the convicted get punished per existing laws. Why you? Because you appear to be a Nun among Whores in Washington, Deceit.
2) Include private citizens who have shown a commitment to pursue this case to a whole-truth-and-consequence conclusion, such as Tom Fitton and Larry Klayman of Judical Watch, Sherriff Joe Arpaio and LT Mike Zullo, the Citizens Committee on Benghazi, Orly Taitz, and other outside professionals.
3) Set a timetable and move this investigation along expeditiously, say, completed by October 2014 or sooner if possible. If any stonewalling, delays, resistance, lying, boycotts, witness tampering, etc. are detected, swiftly fine or imprison the offenders for contempt or obstruction of justice. “

” We decided to dig up the truth on baby carrots, and here’s what we found.
Most baby carrots sold in U.S. supermarkets are really what the industry calls “baby cuts” – made from longer carrots that have been peeled and cut into a smaller size. These carrots have been specifically bred to be smaller in diameter, coreless and sweeter than regular carrots.
Bob Borda, a spokesman for Grimmway Farms, the world’s largest carrot grower (it ships 10 million pounds every day), says that over the years the company has developed a hybrid that combines the best qualities from over 250 known commercial varieties.
“Naturally, you breed carrots to get the sweetest flavor and crunch,” he told FoxNews.com.
But baby carrots didn’t start out that way. Prior to the mid-1980s, broken and misshaped carrots were discarded, leaving some farmers with as little as 30 percent of their crop to take to stores. Tired of throwing away perfectly good food, California carrot farmer Mike Yurosek took the carrots and used a potato peeler to reshape them into small pieces more suitable for quick munching. Yurosek purchased an industrial green bean cutter to quickly whittle the carrots into the familiar 2-inch portions we still see today — and their popularity took off.”
” The ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee on Monday demanded that Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) withdraw a “misguided” subpoena of an official who is working to fix the federal ObamaCare website.
In a blistering letter, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) accused Issa of hurling “unfounded accusations” against Todd Park, the administration’s chief technology officer (CTO).
Cummings said Issa’s subpoena was “diverting Mr. Park’s energies” from his work and could “seriously impair” the race to repair HealthCare.gov.
Issa subpoenaed Park last week, ordering him to testify Wednesday before the Oversight Committee.
The committee chairman said he offered a handful of opportunities for Park to speak in front of his committee but was continuously rebuffed by the White House, which said Park was too busy to appear.”
Sandy Hook School To Be Completely Destroyed, Demolition Contractors Sign Confidentiality Agreements
” The people in charge of destroying the remaining ‘evidence’ of the alleged Sandy Hook Massacre have stated that they do not want ‘exploitation’ of anything at the crime scene, so that is why they now have armed guards patrolling the area day and night, stopping people from taking pictures or video of the place.
Some understand that this is an effort to conceal something. Along with all the other ways that people investigated this ‘massacre’ have been stifled, jailed, or halted, now the people concealing this event are destroying the only remnants of this event that can still be investigated. If they didn’t destroy this building, an independent investigation could yield the truth, and that is why they are demolishing the entire building.
If you really want to keep people from stealing stuff and putting it on EBAY, put barbed-wire fence around it and call it a day…
NEWTOWN, Conn. — When the old Sandy Hook Elementary School is demolished, building materials will be pulverized on site and metal will be taken away and melted down in an effort to eliminate nearly every trace of the building where a gunman killed 26 people last December.
Contractors also will be required to sign confidentiality agreements and workers will guard the property’s perimeter to prevent onlookers from taking photographs or videos.”
The writer asks a valid question , why is there NO video of Lanza ? Every other mass shooting in a public place has yielded some sort of surveillance video and still photos , why not Newtown ? No other public building has been razed , why Newtown ?

” The party that swept into power on promises of transparency and accountability scrambled Wednesday to circle wagons in an extravagant attempt to protect administration officials, the White House and the woman many Democrats hope will be their next nominee for president.
Congressional Democrats strenuously tried covering up the inquiry into the botched handling and dishonest aftermath of the terrorist attack on a U.S. facility in Benghazi that left our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans dead.
It was a performance the likes of which have not been seen in this town since the darkest days of the Iraq War when Republicans on Capitol Hill scraped and scrounged for any sort of defense that could be made of the Bush administration and the mountains of bad news that kept emerging from Iraq.
A Democratic Congress, we were promised back then, would be different. Democrats vowed to be a check on the White House and the administration no matter who was president. Turns out, that was just something that sounded good in the heat of an election campaign.”
” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) wrote Tuesday he believes major revelations about the lead up to the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, are imminent, in a Facebook message:
“I think the dam is about to break on Benghazi. We’re going to find a system failure before, during, and after the attacks.
“We’re going to find political manipulation seven weeks before an election. We’re going to find people asleep at the switch when it comes to the State Department, including Hillary Clinton.”
” Days later, after the FBI solicited the help of the public in identifying two men in grainy video images, the two Chechnyan brothers came out of hiding, killed an MIT police officer in cold blood in an effort to steal his sidearm, car jacked an Asian man, drove to a convenience store and robbed it, then engaged in a firefight with police. The two men were armed with a small arsenal of five pipe bombs, an M-4 carbine, two handguns and a BB gun. They planned to kill as many people as they could and then, depending on who is talking, blow up New York or party there, authorities said.
Police begin to look pretty incompetent if they are having a shootout involving dozens of police officers and just two suspects if the suspects escape, even if the suspects are armed with several weapons. But now we know that the pair did not have an arsenal, as first reported, but only one Ruger 9 mm handgun.
If police will lie about the weapons the pair had and what happened during the shootout, what else are they lying about?
The FBI claims it’s looking for other members of the Tsarnaev’s terror cell. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick insists they acted alone. It can’t be both, but no one outside of alternative media is asking which it is.
The FBI, the CIA and other non-government organizations (NGOs) use patsies to stage terror events. Even Obama mouthpiece The New York Times has outed the FBI for staging terror attacks so it could swoop in at the last minute and “save” Americans from attacks that would not have happened without FBI help. They have long been known to lie to advance their agendas: Aurora, Colo.; Newtown; Waco; Ruby Ridge; Oklahoma City; 9/11; Gulf of Tonkin;USS Liberty — the “official” stories on all these are lies.”
” There has been no acceptable explanation for not rescuing Americans under siege in Benghazi, and nothing less than a special House committee investigation will satisfy the retired U.S. Army general who played a key role in organizing a letter signed by more than 700 special operations veterans in demanding the formation of the special committee.
Retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin served in the Army’s special forces and in the Army Rangers. Boykin is now executive vice president at the Family Research Council, and he’s a member of the WND board of directors.
He told WND the lack of action during the Benghazi crisis, and the lack of answers since, have been bothering him for months.
Boykin said he and his colleagues directed the letter toward the House of Representatives rather than the U.S. Senate because there are already 70 House co-sponsors for a resolution calling for the creation of the same select committee to probe what went wrong before, during and after the Benghazi attacks. He is very cautiously optimistic that House leaders will approve the committee, but he cautioned the reaction over the next day or so will be critical in determining whether it will happen.
The general agrees with Special Operations Speaks Co-Founder Larry Bailey, who told us earlier in the week that to this point House leaders have been somewhat complicit in allowing key questions on Benghazi to go unanswered.
“If you look at the fact that the commander of the Africa Command, Gen. Carter Ham, has never been brought in to testify, if you look at the fact that there are at least 32 survivors of this incident and none of them have ever been brought in and questioned, if you look at the fact that one of those 32 is still in Walter Reed and a member of Congress has visited him twice but he’s never been asked to come across town and appear before a committee or subcommittee, this is inexcusable and it reeks of a cover-up of some kind , Boykin said .”

” Benghazi: The House GOP has threatened to subpoena the survivors of the Benghazi terrorist attack, those who know the truth, and hold up the? nomination of our murdered ambassador’s replacement. It should do both.
The Obama administration is fond of using a familiar tactic, the shield of an “ongoing investigation,” to cover up its malfeasance in the deaths of Americans serving their country.
It was used to hide the truth regarding the administration’s Fast and Furious gun-running operation to Mexican drug cartels, which resulted in the deaths of agents Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata. They are using it again concerning Benghazi.
The only American witnesses to the Benghazi attack who have been named by the Obama administration are the four whom the terrorists killed in the Sept. 11 attack on our Benghazi mission — Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who were working for the CIA.”
We’re a day late with this one but it is very much worth your time .
” Today is the one year anniversary of the death of New Media pioneer and American patriot Andrew Breitbart. In his memory I’m reprinting the article I published a year ago in response, explaining the impact he had, originally titled “Immortality: Andrew Breitbart’s 5 Gifts to Generation Y Conservatism.”
My wife called him the wizard, for he could conjure up anything at any time with limitless energy.
As an enthusiast for pop culture’s fruits, perhaps Big Hollywood’s founder would allow a Harry Potter reference to describe the impact he left on American political culture and the lives of those who knew him.”

” Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a “very senior person” at the White House warned him in an email that he would “regret doing this,” the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.
CNN host Wolf Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the White House declined.
“It makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, ‘You’re going to regret doing something that you believe in,'” Woodward said.”

” The leading legal and investigatory government watchdog announced Feb. 20 that it filed suit in federal court demanding the President Barack Obama and the director of national intelligence release documents relating to the Sept. 11-12 attacks on our diplomatic mission in Benghazi.
“With all of the Benghazi lies coming out of the Obama administration, the only way to get at the truth is to release these records immediately,” said Thomas J. Fitton, the president of the Washington-based Judicial Watch, a conservative, non-partisan education foundation.”

“General Patraeus Sir,
We seem to have a President who was willing to let GOOD MEN DIE to hide something else, something very sinister that was happening in Benghazi. You KNOW more than what you let on, Sir.
Your recent testimony before Congress appeared to throw the Administration under the bus, but lingering questions remain. Rice is a distraction. We want to know the truth.
WHAT WAS OBAMA HIDING THAT HE LET 4 GOOD MEN DIE IN BENGHAZI?
You were the head of the CIA and as such you have the information that the people seek. Silence will betray your honor, if the full truth is not revealed.
That night we got our rear handed to us by Muslim Brotherhood ideologues who alternately want to kills us or enslave us. The people YOU call co-workers are either in league with the enemy or have the same objectives. Four American men and a little piece of America died that night. They died because someone in this Administration watched the battle rage for 7 hours, yet still gave the order to STAND DOWN as Americans were overrun, tortured and massacred.
WE WERE ROUTED BY THE ENEMY AND OUR OWN GOVERNMENT CHOSE TO LET OUR PEOPLE BE SLAUGHTERED!
WHO GAVE THAT ORDER, SIR? “
