When Seconds Count…The Police Are Not Only Minutes Away, But They Are Only Going To Watch And Draw Pretty Chalk Lines Around Your Body, Supreme Court Says!

If you think the police have a duty to protect…bzzzt wrong. They have a duty to draw pretty little lines around your dead body. While there are many honorable police officers who WOULD put their life on the line for you, it isn’t their duty. So while you are dialing 911 for help you better have already gotten your weapon ready to defend yourself.

WASHINGTON, June 27 – The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm, even a woman who had obtained a court-issued protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a violation.

The decision, with an opinion by Justice Antonin Scalia and dissents from Justices John Paul Stevens and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, overturned a ruling by a federal appeals court in Colorado. The appeals court had permitted a lawsuit to proceed against a Colorado town, Castle Rock, for the failure of the police to respond to a woman’s pleas for help after her estranged husband violated a protective order by kidnapping their three young daughters, whom he eventually killed.

For hours on the night of June 22, 1999, Jessica Gonzales tried to get the Castle Rock police to find and arrest her estranged husband, Simon Gonzales, who was under a court order to stay 100 yards away from the house. He had taken the children, ages 7, 9 and 10, as they played outside, and he later called his wife to tell her that he had the girls at an amusement park in Denver.

Ms. Gonzales conveyed the information to the police, but they failed to act before Mr. Gonzales arrived at the police station hours later, firing a gun, with the bodies of the girls in the back of his truck. The police killed him at the scene.

The theory of the lawsuit Ms. Gonzales filed in federal district court in Denver was that Colorado law had given her an enforceable right to protection by instructing the police, on the court order, that “you shall arrest” or issue a warrant for the arrest of a violator. She argued that the order gave her a “property interest” within the meaning of the 14th Amendment’s due process guarantee, which prohibits the deprivation of property without due process.

Raging Against Self Defense: A psychiatrist Examines The Anti-Gun Mentality, By Sarah Thompson, M.D.

Read the whole thing…and this is a companion piece that is worth a read as well.

Communicating with anti-gun people

How can you communicate more effectively with an anti–gun person who is using unhealthy defense mechanisms? There are no quick and easy answers. But there are a few things you should keep in mind.

Anger and attacks do not work

Most gun owners, when confronted by an anti–gun person, become angry and hostile. This is understandable, because gun owners increasingly face ridicule, persecution and discrimination. (If you don’t believe this, ask yourself if anyone would seriously introduce legislation to ban African–Americans, women, or Jews from post offices, schools, and churches. Even convicted felons aren’t banned from such places – but peaceful armed citizens are!) But an angry response is counterproductive.

It’s not helpful to attack the person you’re trying to persuade. Anything that makes him feel more fearful or angry will only intensify his defenses. Your goal is to help the person feel safe, and then to provide experiences and information that will help him to make informed decisions.

Be Gentle

You should never try to break down a defense mechanism by force. Remember that defense mechanisms protect people from feelings they cannot handle, and if you take that protection away, you can cause serious psychological harm. And because defe

The Expanding Flash Mob Threat…Are You In Condition Yellow? Why Not?

From Jeff Cooper:

  • White: Unaware and unprepared. If attacked in Condition White, the only thing that may save you is the inadequacy or ineptitude of your attacker. When confronted by something nasty, your reaction will probably be “Oh my God! This can’t be happening to me.”
  • Yellow: Relaxed alert. No specific threat situation. Your mindset is that “today could be the day I may have to defend myself”. You are simply aware that the world is a potentially unfriendly place and that you are prepared to defend yourself, if necessary. You use your eyes and ears, and realize that “I may have to shoot today”. You don’t have to be armed in this state, but if you are armed you should be in Condition Yellow. You should always be in Yellow whenever you are in unfamiliar surroundings or among people you don’t know. You can remain in Yellow for long periods, as long as you are able to “Watch your six.” (In aviation 12 o’clock refers to the direction in front of the aircraft’s nose. Six o’clock is the blind spot behind the pilot.) In Yellow, you are “taking in” surrounding information in a relaxed but alert manner, like a continuous 360 degree radar sweep. As Cooper put it, “I might have to shoot.”
  • Orange: Specific alert. Something is not quite right and has your attention. Your radar has picked up a specific alert. You shift your primary focus to determine if there is a threat (but you do not drop your six). Your mindset shifts to “I may have to shoot that person today”, focusing on the specific target which has caused the escalation in alert status. In Condition Orange, you set a mental trigger: “If that person does “X”, I will need to stop them”. Your pistol usually remains holstered in this state. Staying in Orange can be a bit of a mental strain, but you can stay in it for as long as you need to. If the threat proves to be nothing, you shift back to Condition Yellow.
  • Red: Condition Red is fight. Your mental trigger (established back in Condition Orange) has been tripped. “If ‘X’ happens I will shoot that person”.

When it comes to personal security most of us live in Condition White most of our lives. In Condition White before you understand the threat, it is upon you. We live there because for most of our lives, in most of the United States, you could get away with it. It wasn’t dangerous. Well that is starting to change.

JWR,Last Easter weekend, a twitter message went out and in a few hours 20,000 people descended on Surfside Beach, Texas, population about 600. My LEO contacts tell me there were only six officers available. The crowd turned sour towards the locals who did not want them parking or defecating in their yards.Several residents had to stand on their front porches with weapons displayed to keep groups of hundreds from passing through their property. Several rental beach houses were broken into and one contact said the volume of human feces and trash was unbelievable. The roads were impassable for hours, trapping the residents who may have wanted to evacuate.

via Letter Re: The Expanding Flash Mob Threat – SurvivalBlog.com.

Here is the Associated News that confirms that this was basically a “flash mob” event. Imagine that you are at this beach with your wife and children blissfully unaware, in Condition White, and 20,000 hooligans descend upon you and you don’t notice it until your children are terrified. What do you do now?

Start being aware of your surroundings, we do not have the luxury of being blissfully unaware any longer. The hordes have been allowed into the castle walls…they are aching for a fight. Before we give them that fight we have to survive until the rest of us wake up to the threat.

Report: 1 dead, 3 wounded in Texas beach shooting Published April 08, 2012 Associated Press

SURFSIDE BEACH, TEXAS –  Authorities say one person has been killed and three others wounded in a shooting during a packed beach party on the Texas Gulf Coast. Brazoria County Sheriff Charles Wagner told The Facts newspaper that he had no immediate identification of those involved in the shooting at Surfside Beach and no immediate arrests had been made. Wagner says the circumstances were unclear. The Facts said word of mouth about an unauthorized beach party spread on social media, drawing thousands to Surfside Beach, about 40 miles south of Galveston. Surfside Beach officials told The Facts that the party was not permitted nor authorized. The Facts quoted a witness as saying the party began peacefully, but fights broke out and there was heavy drinking and also drug use.

Eventually we will have to take back our world and make it civilized again, till then Condition Yellow it is.

 

Obama Voter Ann Althouse “Good lord, what an ugly place we are in right now.”

This Zimmerman affair is what you might want to call a teachable moment for those folks like Althouse who voted for Obama.

Zimmerman letter to Obama Attorney General Holder…

I realize that you are no doubt aware of the events that took place on February 26, 2012 in Sanford, Florida. While the facts of the case have not been made public yet, many in the black community have formed what many are calling a “lynch mob” against George Zimmerman. The rhetoric from the black community has ranged from benign to incredibly violent. Among those that have interjected themselves include Congressmen (and women), the Congressional Black Caucus, The NAACP, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Spike Lee, President Barack Obama, and the most violent, the New Black Panthers. Many of the above mentioned groups (or persons) that are commenting on the tragic events of that February night no doubt understand the laws of our great nation. What ever happened to INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY and DUE PROCESS?

Hate Crimes Holder Justice Department The Daily Caller.

Here is a snippet from Althouse’s realization that we are in a very special place…heh.

Good lord, what an ugly place we are in right now. Who would have thought that in the last year of Obama’s presidential term, the public mind would obsess over race at this level? I’m recalling the media coverage of election night, 2008, and the inauguration, when there was a rhapsody of closure and a feeling — some called it “hope” — that we had entered a new era of harmony. How did we get sucked into some nightmare parody of the past? If it’s not Obama’s fault, can he at least do something to yank us up out of this awful place? In 2009 or even 2011, he would have given a speech. He would have believed he could rescue us with a speech, perhaps because we kind of thought he could. Maybe no one believes anymore. There’s a hope vacuum, and look what’s moving in.

Althouse is proving that being intelligent is no guarantee of having wisdom. All of this was predictable and predicted by many prominent and not so prominent voices prior to the “One” election/coronation. Some of us are not as intelligent as Althouse but we are blessed with the wisdom to know better when a flim-flam man comes a calling like Obama did in 2007. For some of us we saw through the carefully polished shine when he gave his speech at the 2004 Democratic convention.

Btw having wisdom to see through some of the crap that comes flying my way does not mean I can see though all of it…witness my prediction that Obama would lose from the link to flim-flam man! Boy am I eating that foolish prediction, the American people, including Althouse were far stupider than I ever realized.

But Obama is even funnier than that if you consider the attempted con job he has been trying to pull on the rest of the country. Consider his oh so heralded speech on race, which was actually an attempt to keep the Right Reverend Wright’s lunatics on board while giving willing fools a reason to believe that Obama really isn’t a white hating lunatic himself…no matter what he says about his Grandmother. He really thinks you are a dumbshit…ain’t that cute. Those leftists with their coincidental relationships with reality! Thank goodness that the Democrats are buying into this classic demagogues bullshit. Had they run a centrist candidate not out on the lunatic fringes they might have actually won the Presidency this year. Hell even Lieberman would have crushed McCain. You go girls.

So then where does that leave us? Probably at the cusp of a civil war as none of this is being missed by anyone.

WHY HAS WIKIPEDIA REMOVED THE THOMAS JAMES BALL PAGE?…

Because he specifically attacks the feminist version of reality. Because no attacks are permitted against the prevailing wisdom of the left. Because this is a harbinger of how our nation will be run if we continue down the path of political correctness instead of honest discussion of difficult questions. Because men are evil…

Instapundit » Blog Archive » WHY HAS WIKIPEDIA removed the Thomas Ball page?…

Here is the Wiki discussion regarding the deletion.

Apparently one of the criteria for inclusion is that the story is noted in the national press. Seems like that will be difficult to achieve since it is in the self interest of the national press that this story die. After all offending the feminists who are oppressing men cannot be allowed to happen. The meme of men being evil must be supported in all branches of the elite.

The Organized Silencing of a Man Publicly Burned To Death

Are you in pain? If you’re a man, then Shut Up.

Are you being abused, by your wife or girlfriend? Tough Shit.

Are you worn down by the continuous public narrative that due to your masculinity, you’re obviously a lesser person, or violent, or criminal, or just fucking guilty?

Quit Whining, Shut Up, and Pay Your Fucking Child Support Payments.

In fact, if you have any complaint about the systematic abrogation of your rights, and you speak up against the marginalization of your identity based on your sex, (if you’re male) and you weather years of public shaming, accusation, theft, violence, and criminalization of your person – you can be assured that nobody cares, and your pain is fodder for comedy, or else it is invisible.

What if a corrupt and profiteering family court system driven by money appropriated from fathers in their child support payments – this court system irrevocably separates you from your children, devastating you while utterly denying your pain, and garnishing your earnings. Tough shit, pay up sucker.

self-immolation

But lets say you endure such prolonged agony and abuse through the courts, and such systematic refusal by the institutions of society to redress any grievance that your last ultimate option to be heard is to literally and actually set yourself on fire and die, burning in public.

Now, lets imagine a world so totally twisted that the media totally blanks this as a news item. That dismissive and scant reporting of this act of political self immolation is written off with throw away lines calling you, the burned corpse – a deadbeat, a lone nut.

We Are From The Government And We Are Here To…Kill You! That’ll Learn Them To Dial 911.

While reading this, keep in mind that the son called 911 for medical help. For trying to help his Grandmother he got arrested and his, 86 year old disabled, confined to a bed, grandmother, got tasered, roughed up, cuffed, arrested and then was committed to a mental institution for 6 days. Who does that sort of shit? What sort of bloodless bastard steps on the oxygen line of a grandmother? Which one of these “brave” cops actually stood up and claimed that an 86 year old woman can take an aggressive posture? Goddamnit I used to train cops in self defense and they were good men. What the fuck happened between 1971 and now? Did we breed a bunch of assholes who have forgotten they are supposed to be the good guys?

Police Tasered an 86-year-old disabled grandma in her bed and stepped on her oxygen hose until she couldn’t breathe, after her grandson called 911 seeking medical assistance, the woman and her grandson claim in Oklahoma City Federal Court. Though the grandson said, "Don’t Taze my granny!" an El Reno police officer told another cop to "Taser her!" and wrote in his police report that he did so because the old woman "took a more aggressive posture in her bed," according to the complaint.

Lonnie Tinsley claims that he called 911 after he went to check on his grandmother, whom he found in her bed, "connected to a portable oxygen concentrator with a long hose." She is "in marginal health, [and] takes several prescribed medications daily," and "was unable to tell him exactly when she had taken her meds," so, Tinsley says, he called 911 "to ask for an emergency medical technician to come to her apartment to evaluate her."

In response, "as many as ten El Reno police" officers "pushed their way through the door," according to the complaint.
The grandma, Lona Varner, "told them to get out of her apartment."

The remarkable complaint continues: "Instead, the apparent leader of the police [defendant Thomas Duran] instructed another policeman to ‘Taser her!’ He stated in his report that the 86 year-old plaintiff ‘took a more aggressive posture in her bed,’ and that he was fearful for his safety and the safety of others.

"Lonnie Tinsley told them, ‘Don’t taze my Granny!’ to which they responded that they would Taser him; instead, they pulled him out of her apartment, took him down to the floor, handcuffed him and placed him in the back of a police car.
"The police then proceeded to approach Ms. Varner in her bed and stepped on her oxygen hose until she began to suffer oxygen deprivation.

"The police then fired a Taser at her and only one wire struck her, in the left arm; the police then fired a second Taser, striking her to the right and left of the midline of her upper chest and applied high voltage, causing burns to her chest, extreme pain and to pass out.

Strange Story Appears Then Disappears From Canadian Free Press Site…Obama Serves 14 State Governors With Warnings Of Arrest?

Got a weird email that referenced a story on the Canadian Free Press site. Here is what I believe is the complete text of the story but my goodness this is crazy talk… right?

Obama is angered by the several State Governors who have reestablished “State Defense Forces.” These forces are described as: “State Defense Forces (also known as State Guards, State Military Reserves, State Militias) in the United States are military units that operate under the sole authority of a state government; they are not regulated by the National Guard Bureau nor are they part of the Army National Guard of the United States. State Defense Forces are authorized by state and federal law and are under the command of the governor of each state. State Defense Forces are distinct from their state’s National Guard in that they cannot become federal entities.”

Mr. Obama is fearful of these State Defense Forces, in that he does not have control of said forces, and with the U.S. Military stretched to near breaking from multiple deployments and theatre actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, these State military forces would be under the direct command and authority of the Governors in which states have said forces. In essence, the Governors would have “de facto control” of the United States.

The two Governors leading this move are: Tim Pawlenty, Governor of Minnesota; and Rick Perry, Governor of Texas. Both of these State Governors stated they have: “…deep fear the President is destroying their Nation.” Governor Pawlenty’s fear of Obama is that since Obama took office he has appeased America’s enemies and has shunned some of America’s strongest allies, especially Israel. Governor Perry has declared that Obama is punishing his State of Texas by dumping tens-of-thousands of illegal Mexican immigrants into the cities and small towns of Texas. Governor Perry further recently stated: “If Barack Obama’s Washington doesn’t stop being so oppressive, Texans might feel compelled to renounce their American citizenry and secede from the union.”

Obama fearing a revolution against him by the states, has moved swiftly by nationalizing nearly all National Guard Forces in multiple states; Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, Minnesota, Tennessee, Virginia, Louisiana, South Carolina – to name a few.  The Governors of the Great States of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia still have under their Command-and-Control the State Defense Forces to go against U.S. Federal forces should the need arise.  Also important to note:  There are NO U.S. laws prohibiting National Guard troops from also joining their State’s Defense Forces.  This dilemma occurred during the Civil War with many “citizen soldiers” choosing to serve their states instead of the Federal Government.

Followed the link to an empty page on the Canada Free Press site. Did a search on the Canada Free Press site and voila the story shows up with the title: Obama Serves 14-State Governors with Warnings of Arrest click on the link within the search results from Canada Free Press and nothing. Someone tell me that the Canada Free Press site are a bunch of wackos so I can go to sleep…or else this story about mobilizations of National Guard Units around the country starts looking a lot more worrisome. I know this shit is wacko but then again we have a bunch of communist wackos running our government. We should be expecting this shit.

Last week at least 2 anonymous sources reported to the Conservative Examiner that National Guard troops were on the move inside the country.  As the days have progressed more reports surfaced, and several bloggers wrote that troops have been spotted on the move in massive convoys in various parts of the nation.

And I am working on a story of a friend who happens to be the head of an extremely successful company that is ranked very high in the world for its type of business. This guy is probably one of the most sensible people I know. We are both preparing for Armageddon and both of us looked at each other when we realized what the other was doing and almost on cue wondered aloud how crazy was it that we were forced to do this in the United States. It is time people…start finding your buddies. Get your hide spots picked and get your supplies cause remember that most people are surprised by the collapse of civilizations. They never expect it. This guy who runs this huge company is talking about burying a gas tank on his farm to take care of business.

You have been warned.

BERNIE MADOFF’S NEMISIS HARRY MARKOPOLOS SAYS THERE ARE SCAMMERS WHO ARE BIGGER THAN BERNARD MADOFF…GREEN SHOOTS SPOUTING UP ALL OVER THE PLACE!

This might be worth paying attention to but no one is reporting it. Scary stuff…but hey who cares eh?

HARRY Markopolos — the whistleblower on Bernie Madoff who proved to be much smarter than the SEC — says there are evildoers out there who will make the Ponzi scum "look like small-time." Markopolos gave a speech to 400 of the faithful at the Greek Orthodox Church in Southampton and predicted major scandals will soon be revealed about the unregulated, $600 trillion, credit-default swap market. "To put it in simple terms, it is like buying fire insurance policies from five different insurance companies on your neighbor’s house and then burning down the house," he said.

Sheesh someone quick put this guy in charge of the SEC. Not likely given how many politicians on both sides of the aisle who are protecting those that are ripping us all off!

CUDA ATTACK! SARAH DOES WHAT NO OTHER REPUBLICAN HAS THE BALLS TO DO! ATTACK OBAMA! WHY IS IT THAT ONLY REPUBLICAN WOMEN ARE TOUGH? WHERE ARE THE MEN???? SARAH PALIN 2012!

Sarah taking it to that bastard in the White House! You Betcha!

PALIN: That’s how I feel! I feel like… and I think that more and more constituents are going to open their eyes now and open their ears to hear what is really going on and realize ok… Maybe we didn’t have a good way of expressing that, or articulating that message of ‘here is what America could potentially become if we grow government to such a degree that we cannot pay for it and we have to borrow money from other countries, some countries that don’t necessarily like America.

And this many months into the new administration, quite disappointed, quite frustrated with not seeing those actions to rein in spending, slow down the growth of government. Instead Sean it is the complete opposite. It’s expanding at such a large degree that if Americans aren’t paying attention, unfortunately our country could evolve into something that we do not even recognize.

HANNITY: Socialism?

PALIN: Well, that is where we are headed. That is where we have to be blunt enough and candid enough and honest enough with Americans to let them know that if we keep going down these roads… nationalizing many of our services, our projects, our businesses, yes that is where we would head. And that is why Americans have to be paying attention. And we have to have our voices heard. And ultimately it need to be our will, the American people’s will imposed on Washington, instead of the other way around.

The interview is set to air tonight on FOXNEWS, 9 PM ET.  DRUDGE REPORT: PALIN: ‘TOLD YA SO’ 2009®

Here is EXACTLY what she predicted in 2008 in her acceptance speech. Sarah got it exactly right.

This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting and never use the word "victory" except when he’s talking about his own campaign. But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed … when the roar of the crowd fades away … when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot — what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger … take more of your money … give you more orders from Washington … and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. America needs more energy … our opponent is against producing it.

Victory in Iraq is finally in sight … he wants to forfeit.

Terrorist states are seeking nuclear weapons without delay … he wants to meet them without preconditions.

Al-Qaida terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America … he’s worried that someone won’t read them their rights? Government is too big … he wants to grow it.

Congress spends too much … he promises more.

Taxes are too high … he wants to raise them. His tax increases are the fine print in his economic plan, and let me be specific.

The Democratic nominee for president supports plans to raise income taxes … raise payroll taxes … raise investment income taxes … raise the death tax … raise business taxes … and increase the tax burden on the American people by hundreds of billions of dollars. My sister Heather and her husband have just built a service station that’s now opened for business — like millions of others who run small businesses.

Any questions?
