Media myths on ‘assault weapons’ and ‘semiautomatic firearms’&Preventing Gun Violence

Media myths on ‘assault weapons’ and ‘semiautomatic firearms’&Preventing Gun Violence | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
If gun-control advocates and our media want to have a conversation about government restrictions on gun ownership, I think that’s fine. Debating more issues, rather than fewer, is probably good for our politics.

 

 Today’s New York Times story on the AR-15 has a lot of good information and aims to be balanced, but the story still manages to perpetuate many of the most stubborn myths about rifles.

Some points I would like to make in response:

Civilian-available AR-15s aren’t automatic weapons

First, the Times calls the AR-15 “the civilian version of the military’s M-16.” The M-16 is a machine gun, that throughout most of its history – and certainly in popular understanding – has been a fully-automatic weapon. When you squeeze the trigger on an automatic weapon, bullets keep firing out of it until you stop squeezing. The U.S. military has shied away from automatic firing, and the newest M-16s have other settings – three-shot burst (which, relative to the automatic setting, preserves ammo and inculcates more discipline among soldiers in combat) and semi-automatic.

AR-15s that are legal to buy do not have the three-shot burst that the military’s current M-16s have. They also don’t have the automatic-fire option that most people associate with the M-16. [Update: I should have made it clearer that the M-16s the U.S. military buys today do not have the automatic option.]

If you’re going to use a famous gun as a point of reference, it seems responsible to mention that unlike the famous machine gun you’re comparing it to, the AR-15 is incapable of automatic or burst fire.

‘Semiautomatic’ isn’t really a useful descriptor

The Times writes:

AR-15s are not the only weapons used by rampaging shooters. Semiautomatic handguns are also frequently employed.

Again, “semiautomatic” mostly means “not automatic.” You pull the trigger on a semiauto gun like an AR-15, and one bullet comes out. You pull it again, and another bullet comes out. Unlike a single-shot gun, you don’t need to cock it or load it after each shot.

‘Assault weapon’ is not a very helpful descriptor

The Times piece twice uses the term “assault weapon” to describe the AR-15. But there’s no real definition of the term.

First, all guns can be used to assault someone – even a muzzle-loading black-powder rifle.

Second, Congressional attempts to define this term were laughably ad hoc.

A rifle could cease being an assault weapon if you sawed off the flash suppressor. It could become an assault weapon if you added a bayonet.

A 49-ounce handgun could be legal under this law while an identical version that was one ounce heavier could be outlawed.

I’m pasting the bill’s definition of “assault weapon” at the bottom of this post. The law didn’t target guns used for murder. It targeted guns that look too military-like.

The AR-15 is not an “assault rifle”

Assault weapon/assault rifle, what’s the difference?

One is a meaningless term, as I explained above. The other is a precise term that doesn’t apply to the AR-15 – despite the Times’ article’s suggestion connecting the two. Also,  ”assault rifle” describes guns that are already illegal — because they are automatic — and basically never used in murders.

The Pentagon defines the term “assault rifle,” and David Kopel quotes that definition in an article in the Journal of Contemporary Law. He writes:

As the United States Defense Department’s Defense Intelligence Agency bookSmall Arms Identification and Operation Guide explains, “assault rifles” are “short, compact, selective-fire weapons that fire a cartridge intermediate in power between submachine gun and rifle cartridges.”[21] In other words, assault rifles are battlefield rifles which can fire automatically.[22]

Weapons capable of fully automatic fire, including assault rifles, have been regulated heavily in the United States since the National Firearms Act of 1934.[23] Taking possession of such weapons requires paying a $200 federal transfer tax and submitting to an FBI background check, including ten-print fingerprints.[24]

 

 

 

 

 

littlebytesnews's insight:

Like so many others, the past week has taken an emotional toll on me. I have been writing about and researching what needs to be done and how we can change so that another Sandy Hook, Columbine, Aurora killing or Virginia Tech shooting don't happen again.

 

The fact of the matter is no law or gun ban is going to stop the crazed and criminal minds from breaking the law. You can't regulate evil away, only God can do that when He returns. However, we can make moral and ethical choices which include taking responsibility for our actions and acting as law abiding citizens who are willing and able to defend life, should the need arise.

 

Before you start to think or say I'm a gun nut or 'right wing extremist', I'm not a gun owner nor enthusiast, though I have shot them before and would consider buying one for my own protection. However, I have not felt the need to, and have some fears of owning such a weapon with young children around so have put it off. I know there are safes and locks to keep it in,but I am not ready to purchase one at this time, but when the time comes I feel the need to arm myself, I want that right to personal freedom and protection to defend myself or family regardless of where I am. Sure we have laws against crimes and police to 'serve and protect us', but by the time the police arrive a crime has already taken place.

 

Most people who intend to commit a crime don't make a public announcement...some may leave clues, but they are not usually discovered until after the fact. Some people make verbal threats or written threats and that is when you can take some action to prevent harm to yourself by alerting the police, getting a restraining order or otherwise, but none of these things will actually stop someone from committing the crime unless you have solid enough proof prior to the act taking place.

 

We don't know when someone will 'lose it' and take their anger, frustrations and insane thoughts out on innocent people and the only way we can protect ourselves from such people and incidents is to protect ourselves. We must have the same rights as the police and the same protection the police could provide when seconds count and it is a life or death situation. There are many instances that go underreported where people's lives have been saved because they or someone nearby had a concealed weapon on hand to stop the killer from committing a crime. http://gunssavelives.net has a complete list of recent incidents in which armed citizens protect and defend themselves from harm.

 

Here are a few recent headlines you don't hear about in the mainstream news:

Houston Hotel Clerk Turns Tables on Armed Robber

Resident Shoots and Kills Armed Intruder Protecting His Girlfriend and 2 Yr Old Child

Homeowner Uses Gun to Fight Off 2 Violent Home Invaders, Saves Family

[Video] Utah Pastor Uses Laser Sighted Gun to Protect His Family From Intruder on Drugs

 

While more and more Americans own guns, about half of all US households, violent crimes have actually fallen. More guns in the hands of 'good guys' keeps criminals from committing crimes. In addition, the actual number of killings by semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15 used in the Newtown shooting are rare.  A weapons ban on these or any gun would do nothing, especially when criminals can steal the weapon from law abiding gun owners, like Adam Lanza did, or they can buy them illegally.

 

In addition, the number of children who actually die or are killed in schools is actually only around 1% according to DOJ reports. However,  the shock of such a horrific massacre against such young and innocent children and the 24/7 media discussion of the incident leads politicians and others to react on emotion. This emotional reaction results in more laws,taking freedoms away from law-abiding citizens not the criminals, while ignoring the fact these criminals/murderers are already breaking several laws by stealing the guns and breaking into private property and acting out violently. 

 

The problem is not the weapon of choice used, but the actions of the user. We would be better off trying to stop these tragedies from happening by protecting and securing our environment and making sure there are others readily available to take immediate action to stop the crime from becoming worse. If one teacher or the principal had a gun at Sandy Hook, I fully believe the senseless slaughter of so many would have been prevented. Even if they saved just one life, it would have been worth it to have someone armed with a gun to fight back.

 

Identifying those with mental health illness is another major factor in these cases. Your average person who watches violent movies or plays violent video games doesn't act out violently against others and knows the difference between right and wrong and have emotional control of themselves. However, those like Adam Lanza  who are prone to act out because they are already socially isolated,  have shown agression before in social settings[his mom had to home-school him because of outbursts at school&had to have a babysitter for him while he was a teen because she feared leaving him alone.] and/or they have had a life change like a divorce that has affected them long term emotionally [his parents divorced in 2009 and since then he became estranged from his father, had no male role model in his life, his older brother left home for college] made him more depressed and isolated, according to family friends.

 

These red flags should have alerted his mom to seek professional help and care for him and herself. She should have never put all of the burden on herself. Recent reports say she was preparing to seek professional help and have him committed and this may have been one reason he acted out the way he did...but the fact of the matter is, it sounds like she waited too long and should have gotten him the help he needed a lot sooner, like when she had to start home-schooling him.

 

Unfortunately his mother thought her love, time and committment to him was enough to make him feel loved and accepted but she still had troubles reaching him and 'bonding' with him so she taught him how to use guns and took him target shooting. I question his mother's logic on teaching such an emotionally unstable person how to use a gun, let alone letting him have access to them in her home, considering she warned others not to leave him alone when he was babysat as a teen. Family friends and those who went to school with him said he was highly intelligent and perhaps he knew how to break the safe or lock or combination to steal the guns and ammo, but knowing she had someone unstable living in her home she should have never allowed him to use the weapons let alone keep them in her home, in a room where he spent most of his time playing violent video games.  These violent games, the social isolation, aggressive behavior/outbursts, likely depression and other underlying mental illness we don't know about created a recipe for disaster. 

 

Instead of gun control limiting law abiding citizens from protecting themselves from crazed criminals, we need better mental health awareness. While not every shy person who plays violent video games or watches violent movies is going to act out like Adam Lanza, we need to be able to recognize that those who are emotionally immature and unstable could be affected differently. They are at a higher risk to cause self harm or harm against others. These people who are at a higher risk should be evaluated and under professional supervision, and institutionalized if necessary. It's not the weapons, but the underlying instability of the person using these guns.

 

Evil will not go away with more laws, but prevention can take place by removing those who pose a potential danger to themselves and others from society. Unfortunately groups like the ACLU have made it difficult for families to care for those who are a high risk and suffer mental illness. They are often told the person has to commit a violent crime before they can be committed.  As a result, these families must then go through legal barriers to have someone committed against their will, unless they commit a violent act. While I should hope mental evaluations are done accurately and without malice, and people aren't committed because of convenience, it could alert those involved that this person needs help temporarily or permanently to keep them from posing a danger to society.

A Call To Action to Restore America & What's Really Destroying America

A Call To Action to Restore America & What's Really Destroying America | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

A Call To Action to Restore America

by P Garza aka @littlebytesnews

 

UPDATE:

Do you support unification of TeaParty orgs,etc to take legal action against the liberal propaganda media, as well as boycotting of their sponsors? If you want to restore America we must act together and unify our groups to stop the liberal propaganda machine from smearing Conservatives and covering for the socialist/communist Obama, liberal agenda!

 

Do you oppose the moral and cultural decay of our country and the decline of our education system?? Then we must act now and work together to take back the education system, whether by homeschooling, private schooling or getting more involved in the public education system at the local level.

 

If you are not aware by now, after the re-election of Obama, the direction our country is heading is very dire. I fear by the time Obama is done with his four more years, it will be too late and we will all be equally poor and oppressed. I believe we need to take action before that happens and before 2014 and 2016!

 

Sadly, like others I have my doubts those who re-elected this moron will not learn from their mistakes, but am hopeful if we fall completely they will wakeup, but fear that by then it will be too late. I think we need to organize against the media and take back the message. I also think we need to take back the message in schools where our children are being taught about social justice, anti-capitalism, and distorted versions of history rather than the facts. Those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it.

 

My Solutions/Ideas To Change Direction

1) I don't know exactly how we can go after the media other than boycotting sponsors of the liberal propagandists and/or a class action lawsuit by we the people organized by the tea party movement?? They need to be sued for media malpractice and being complicit in keeping the truth from the public, not vetting Obama properly, protecting him from the scandals surrounding his admin from fast&furious to Benghazi, Solyndra/green energy loans,etc. If we are successful in a class action lawsuit, I am hopeful their broadcasting license are revoked and conservative media and new media can take over and get the truth to the American people and the world.

 

2)To change/reform education we need more conservatives teaching, acting in leadership roles in the system from school boards, to the administration. We have let the liberals take control for far too long and they now not only control the education system and curriculum but our Universities where many vulnerable young minds are being taught to accept the liberal ideology, social justice, anti-capitalism, etc. Many are also taught antisemitism and this is another reason so many young support Gaza/Hamas rather than our ally Israel. They are not getting the truth and they are not learning from history and about true history, but a revised version of history distorted by the liberal/progressive/Marxists running our schools/universities.

 

I believe the distortions of the liberal media, voter fraud, [http://obamavoterfraud.com] illegal voters through Obama's backdoor amnesty/DREAM Act& foreign donations, as well as lack of photo ID laws allowed Obama to win re-election. Not to mention the brainwashed/misinformed voters who have been taught otherwise in our schools/universities. I know everyone can't home-school so homeschooling as an alternative can not be the only option.

 

We must take back our education system and not only improve the system, but control the message.


All of these things need to change before Conservative principles and the intentions of our founders will be fulfilled again. We have slowly been moving away from those traditional values&morals thanks to the corrupt/biased media and education system. Until we take those back we may never be able to win this fight without total destruction, but by then it might be too late to ever recover. I hope we can somehow do something now and before 2014 to change the message and take back control of the media and education system. Otherwise, we will be doomed to tyranny, the status of a third world country,militarily&economically, and the American Dream will be no more.

 

If you have other ideas and a way to organize with the tea party movement to pursue a class action lawsuit against the corrupt media or change our school system or otherwise, please share and contact me. Hopefully we can all work together to start a citizens action group that can take back our country without violence or the need for another civil war or declaration of independence.

 

Thanks for posting this and helping to raise others awareness of what is destroying our country.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Update: What America needs — if it is to survive in liberty — is a surge in citizen activism unlike anything our nation has ever before seen.

The success of such a grassroots movement will depend on how much individual citizens are willing to do their part to return our country to divinely-inspired principles of self-governance — those principles contained in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, and those validated by common sense and biblical teachings.

If you feel you need to "wait for instructions," or otherwise depend on others — especially those in positions of leadership — to guide and assist you, our country will not survive these perilous times. You must act as though the future of our countrydepends on you alone, for in a very real sense it does. It depends on the creative, responsible, exemplary initiative of yourself and those you inspire to similar patriotism.

Here are suggestions for helping to make a difference in the future of our country.



Submit frequent letters to editors.

Testify at public hearings.

Hold regular gatherings in your home or community to discuss and promote the cause of liberty.

Volunteer to work in a political campaign, at any level, for any worthy purpose.

Widely distribute signs for a cause or a candidate.

Lead — or get involved in — a worthy petition drive.

Organize a rally, large or small, to publicize an urgent issue or cause.

Contact your local paper and offer to be interviewed regarding a public question or concern you have vital knowledge of.

Pick up the phone and share your views on talk radio — or if you have the skills and opportunity, create your own radio or internet talk show.

Create a blog.

Found a website.

Write and publish a regular column — or even a book.

Get actively involved in a major (or possibly a "third") political party in your state or the nation.

Run for local — or higher — public office.

Sign the Pledge for America's Revival — and invite others to do the same.

Participate in RenewAmerica’s Facebook page (and also America’s Revival’s Facebook page) — and support similar interactive forums on the web.

Help organize your state or local area in the cause of taking back our country.

Inform yourself. "Zeal without knowledge" (see Rom. 10:2-3) will not save our country. Become acquainted with reliable, principled websites, blogs, publications, books, speakers, organizations, and other praiseworthy sources for information regarding the needs of our country and the solutions to those needs. Sign up to receive helpful newsletters and alerts.

A good place to start informing yourself would be to study essential documentsthat describe our nation's founding principles.

Work on your "people skills." By this, we mean your ability to strengthen and influence others for good — so they might be persuaded to take independent action — not your ability to "use" others for your own ends, as some might think. Respect the worth, dignity, and free will of each individual as you seek to assist them in fulfilling their duty as citizens.

Work on your communicative skills. "Politics is communication," to a large extent. Become the kind of communicator God can use for His purposes. Meaningful communication requires practice, experience, wisdom, and the operation of God's Spirit in effectively informing real people in real situations. This applies equally to both spoken and written communication.

Turn your skills and resources mainly to saving our country — above any other purpose beyond your own salvation and the well-being of your family — and rely on God to give you the practical means to do so.

and take the pledge: http://www.americasrevival.com/pledge.php#pledge

 

Help spread this message and help me get at least 10,000 to take legal action against the corrupt liberal media!

Hamas Media Strategy Relies on Deaths of Civilians
Michael Oren, +CNN 

...Hamas gunmen carry out attacks disguised as women and old men, fight from UN and Red Cross vehicles, store rockets in schools, and physically prevent Palestinian civilians from fleeing combat zones. This context, though, is rarely mentioned by the media when covering the civilian cost of the fighting.

Unlike Israel, which respects the privacy and dignity of its fallen, Hamas has no difficulty in displaying these casualties to foreign cameras. And the media broadcasts them, obsessively.

The sources of that obsession are many. They include genuine empathy for the Palestinians, objection to Israeli policies, and even animus toward the Jewish state. Still, many journalists would be appalled by the suggestion that they are aiding a terrorist group indistinguishable from ISIS and al-Qaeda. Most, rather, are just doing their job by providing their audiences with the most up-to-date pictures and stories.

'Suspicious device' explodes at Nogales,AZ power plant...radioactives stolen in Mexico

'Suspicious device' explodes at Nogales,AZ power plant...radioactives stolen in Mexico | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
A makeshift bomb exploded at a Nogales, Arizona power plant Wednesday, rupturing a large fuel tank and prompting the FBI and federal bomb experts to

 

Local officials were alerted at 9:30 a.m. to "suspicious activity" at UniSource Energy Services' Valencia Plant. The explosion damaged a diesel storage tank, but there were no reports of injuries and authorities said they knew of no suspects or witnesses.

Officials closed off the power plant and an adjacent car dealership on North Grand Avenue. The FBI, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Arizona Department of Public Safety were called.

Wednesday evening, agents were still processing the scene. Arizona Corporation Commission spokeswoman Rebecca Wilder said there were no power disruptions and the plant received only minor damage.

"The reason for the high-scale response is the plant is an electrical substation and critical to the area," Nogales police Lt. Carlos Jimenez said, explaining that as many as 30,000 customers depend on the plant for power.

"The whole city of Nogales could have been compromised," he added.

Authorities described the explosive as "a suspicious device" but would not elaborate. The fuel did not ignite, Jimenez said.

There’s a bombshell of a rumor going around right now that Chief Justice John Roberts has signed off on Interpol to have Obama removed from office for multiple counts of treason.

The charges are to include declaring war without consent of Congress, Second Amendment infringements, and abuse of the Posse Comitatus Act during the Bundy land dispute.

When Obama was sworn into office he took an oath to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States of America,” however according to the leaked document he’s guilty of the following crimes;

The patient, a healthcare worker who traveled from Saudi Arabia to Indiana, is being kept isolated in an Indiana hospital after being diagnosed with Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) virus, the CDC says.

 

"In 2014 these new diseases are just a plane ride away," said Dr. Anne Schuchat, assistant surgeon general and director of CDC’s National Center for Immunizations and Respiratory Diseases. “We have been preparing since 2012 for this eventuality.”

The World Health Organization has expressed alarm about the increase in reports of MERS. WHO reports more than 250 confirmed cases and 93 deaths since the virus was identified in 2012. But Saudi Arabia alone has reported 371 cases, with 107 deaths.

WTH?Pentagon ‘Lost Track’ Of $626M/43% Of Weapons In Afghanistan

WTH?Pentagon ‘Lost Track’ Of $626M/43% Of Weapons In Afghanistan | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

The Pentagon has lost track of $626 million of weapons that the agency provided to Afghan security forces. The misplaced firearms amount to more than 43 percent of those the taxpayers funded and the governmental agency handed out in Afghanistan.

 

A Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) repot says that the Defense Department information systems designed to track weapons sent to Afghanistan is “full or errors.” The revelations in the report has caused concern that at least some of the firearms have now found their way onto the black market and into the eager hands of militant groups.

The Afghanistan weapons report also noted that 747,000 firearms and “auxiliary equipment” was sent to the Middle East nation state in the past 10 years. Among that batch of items were a significant amount of small arms. The SIGAR document stated that of the total 474,823 serial numbers recorded in the Defense Department database 203,888 had either duplicate or missing information. Government auditors also found that 24,500 serial numbers were repeated at least one time in the database designed to record and track weapons sent to Afghan forces. A total of 50,304 serial numbers noted in the database had no receiving dates or shipping dates recorded.

SIGAR senior audit manager Jeffrey Brown told The Washington Times that there is currently “no evidence” that firearms have become the property or militant groups or terrorist strongholds such as Pakistan, but added that unearthing those types of facts was not in the scope of the ordered audit.

MSM ignores peaceful proIsrael rallies&likes to focus on the violent proGaza/Hamas rallies

MSM ignores peaceful proIsrael rallies&likes to focus on the violent proGaza/Hamas rallies | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Rallies of Israel will be held across the country tomorrow

 

Palestinian rallies tend to involve violence, with signs reading “death to Israel” and chants of “go back to the ovens.” Advocating another Holocaust makes for lousy public relations, but their deep seated beliefs are at least honestly displayed

Pro-Israel rallies are peaceful. Jews carry signs proclaiming a love for America. Jews thank the police officers providing security. Jews sing songs for peace, and long for the day when they have a true partner for peace.  Despite Hamas using their own Palestinian people as human shields, the victims still blame Israel.

 

For these and so many other reasons, rallies in support of Israel are spreading. A recent pro-israel rally in Los Angeles had over 2,000 attendees.

For those looking for more pro-Israel rallies, here is a calendar.

The only way to stop this illegal invasion and national security&health crisis is to enforce the current immigration laws and enforce/secure our borders!! We MUST know who is coming and going, whether they are kids or not, we are a nation of laws and we can not risk our lives by leaving our borders porous to disease, drug cartel, terrorists and other criminal elements. Just because kids are getting through doesn't mean criminals aren't also! The job of the federal govt is to secure our borders and keep our country&citizens safe, leaving them open to illegal immigration violates our laws and our sovereignty! This must stop!! Send them back, change the trafficking law snuck into a House bill in 2008 while Bush was a lame duck POTUS and stop letting illegals take advantage of our taxpayers,welfare system, laws and our country!

Confirmed:Mexico, Guatemala fast-track illegals to U.S. by granting regional visitor cards

Confirmed:Mexico, Guatemala fast-track illegals to U.S. by granting regional visitor cards | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

NEW YORK – Mexico and Guatemala have reached an agreement that is intended to make it easier and safer for Central Americans, including unaccompanied minors, to enter the United States illegally.

Though largely unreported in the U.S. mainstream media, the two nations agreed on July 7, in a presidential-level meeting in Mexico, to make it legal and safe for Central American immigrants, including unaccompanied minors, to cross Mexico’s border with Guatemala and transit Mexico en route to the U.S. border at the Rio Grande.

The agreement apparently does not recognize that the result of such trips – entry into the United States – remains illegal.

But to facilitate the program, the Mexican government announced plans to issue a new “Regional Visitor Card” that will provide documentation for the Central Americans to remain in Mexico as long as it takes to get to the United States.

Under the auspices of a “Southern Border Program,” Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan President Otto Pérez, in a meeting in Mexico, agreed to take five concrete steps designed to “protect and safeguard the human rights of migrants who enter and transit Mexico, so as to order international routes of passage [in and through Mexico] to increase and develop the security of the region.”

The five steps in Mexican “Southern Border Program” included the following action steps:

littlebytesnews's insight:

I first saw reports of this earlier in the week from conservative sites and thought it was a conspiracy theory or satire because it seemed hard to believe....but it appears it is true that Mexico and Guatamala have opened up their border to aid in the trafficking of illegals through Mexico into the US. As long as they are traveling through Mexico to get to the US illegals crossing into Mexico from the southern border will be given regional visitor passes, allowing them to pass through without being detained or deported by Mexico.

 

WTH!! This is allowing an invasion from Mexico into the US and these are countries receiving billions in aid from the US...for what so they can violate our laws and send their poor and sick to the US because they would rather pad their pockets with the billions in aid money we send them to improve their economies and improve security in their countries??!! US aid to Mexico and Central America MUST stop now! Use this money to secure our border and expedite the deportation of these illegal immigrants invading the US! In addition change the 2008 trafficking law that allows the US to assign these illegals a lawyer, fast track them back to their countries of orgin like we do with illegals from Mexico and Canada!!

 

This invasion must stop now!

As the video states, nurses at the 'refugee camps' are being told to keep silent on health conditions of these illegal immigrants or face arrest. In the meantime, border patrol agents are overwhelmed and being used as babysitters at these camps rather than doing the job of securing our border.

WTH?San Diego DHS Goons Occupy VA Hospital And Intimidate Sick Vets

WTH?San Diego DHS Goons Occupy VA Hospital And Intimidate Sick Vets | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Veterans seeking treatment at the VA Hospital in San Deigo, CA this past Wednesday were greeted by an ominous assembly of black uniformed paramilitary police bearing identification patches of DHS and Police, with no name tags or badges. Citing “presence deterrence” as the reason for the action, little more in the way of an explanation was offered. Reports from witnesses state that approximately 20 Federal Protection Services officers, in black SWAT-style uniforms and full gear as well as four bomb-sniffing dogs massed at the entrance to VA Mission Valley Health Care Clinic. FPS is an enforcement group within DHS charged with the protection of government properties. The VA Mission Valley Health Care Clinic provides services in the areas of general practice, a psychiatric clinic, a PTSD treatment clinic, and a disability compensation evaluation clinic. A stream of criticisms from veterans led to a formal complaint being filed with the VA OIG by the advocacy group, Honoring Our Troops (HRT). The complaint states that veterans who were unfortunate enough to find themselves at the facility during this “presence deterrence” were harassed and threatened for taking pictures and asking questions. One veteran reportedly was threatened with a $10,000 fine if he did not delete a photo. One doctor reportedly described the action to a patient’s wife ambiguously as a “familiarization exercise.” Since the OIG complaint, HRT reports being on the receiving end of numerous anonymous phone threats of physical harm as well as threats of stalking and investigations. VA Regional Office spokesman, Alejandro Mendio la Flores verified the FPS action as being part of “Operation Shield” for “presence deterrence.” They claim the number of participants in the exercise was 8 rather than the witness assertions of over twice that many, and that the FPS was conducting training. In addition to the FPS goons, the VA has a “patient security flag” procedure in place in which accusations or warnings about a particular patient are routinely made behind closed doors, without the patient’s knowledge and without an opportunity to face their accusers or refute the accusations. This is the same apparatus which will likely be utilized to a great extent in the determination that many veterans are unfit for the free exercise of their second amendment rights upon the completion of the installation of the police state apparatus and pretexts. The regime has already improperly labeled returning veterans as domestic terrorists or having many of the characteristics that have been labeled as those of domestic terrorists, such as patriotism and a belief that an authoritarian central government is un-American. Is “presence deterrence” designed as a component of the indoctrination process, to reeducate veterans to the “new reality,” that the rules are different, that the former great enemy of socialism is now the path of America’s future. It was chosen for them without being asked by a government intent on controlling, through whatever means necessary, every aspect of the daily lives of their “inmate population.” The message being, accept these conditions or be treated like …

Waseca teen accused in school shooting plot had been planning for months | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
WASECA, MINNLaDue said he had an SKS assault rifle with 400 rounds of ammunition, a 9mm handgun with ammo and a gun safe with more firearms, all in his bedroom at home. He gave an officer the key to the gun safe and the key to his guitar case, where he said they’d find his notebook.

He told police that he planned to kill his parents and sister with a .22-caliber rifle because it would make less noise than some of his other firearms.

Then, he said, he planned to go to the surrounding countryside and start a fire. While police and firefighters were busy, he would go back to the school with bombs, firearms and ammunition. He planned to set off pressure cooker bombs in recycling boxes near the water fountains in the cafeteria and would shoot school liaison officer Jared Chrz “so that he did not stop him from his plans for killing more students,” the document said.

LaDue told police that “if he had brought a gun with him to the storage unit … he would have shot the responding officers,” the complaint said.

Seven firearms and three completed bombs were found in LaDue’s bedroom, the complaint said. Another three bombs, along with chemicals and other materials, were found in the storage unit. LaDue also had 60 pounds of metal ball bearings.

Company Fires Employee For Supporting Sterling's Right to Free Speech | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
via Ron LewenbergShared publicly  -  8:40 PM  American think that we are still in a constitution republic or democracy with rights. But that notion is antiquated is the idea that liberals stand up for free speech. The problem is that liberals have been replaced by cultural Marxist and that we live under a cultural revolution.

There is no peace in this Cultural Revolution. Even thr notion of being a "conservative" is an anachronism as there is precious little to conserve. There is either counter revolution or surrender.

And I write this in the full knowledge at some point in the future if I don't win, I will either have to denounce myself and current positions or face the consequences. I don't consider that a jokeShow lessDavid Fischer originally shared: http://weaselzippers.us/184731-company-fires-employee-for-saying-sterling-has-a-right-to-free-speech/
littlebytesnews's insight:

This is going too far...Sterling may be a racist bigot but he had a right to say what he said in his own home, while in an argument with his mistress....who illegally recorded him.

This is the 25-year-old Boston man who allegedly left two backpacks at the Boston Marathon finish line Tuesday night and got himself arrested for his troubles. His name is Kevin Edson, though he's now apparently going by Kayvon. He is, or was, a student at Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
littlebytesnews's insight:

looks like a kook...probably another liberal, apparently gay since he thinks the Russian Boston bomber who survived last year is 'sexy'.
