The below desperate man succumbing to the fallacious arguments that were initially presented by the Communists in Russia and Nazi Germany.  The people were desperate and pushed in to agreeing with whoever came along that had a positive spin.  This man, I believe, is desperate and although well intentioned, doesn’t really understand that legalizing this is only going to put the next drug (“harsh drug”) in to the status the marijuana enjoys today.   The cartels across the border don’t care what they deal in.  They care only about the profit.  Heroine is just as easy and cocaine is ready many forms.  The reality is that the geographies that HAVE legalized it have an increase in crime due to, what amounts to, institutionalized advertising.  The reason that the the government may WANT to make it legal is not to “make money” through taxes, but to make money through promulgation and increase of head count in UN “social” programs.  You see.  The drug and crimes associated with distribution aren’t really milking enough from you the tax payer, so now they have to go another rout. Conversely, the drug dealers aren’t making enough “just” from drugs alone.  They are multi tasking.  People trafficing seems to be where it’s at, along side the drugs.  They go hand in hand.  It’s a 2 for 1 stop.  Get your drug and a girl all at the same place.  No need to go to a few different “distributors.”  It’s a special type of Wal Mart.

A caller to his show – an example of the brain damage associated with long term use.  To all those that say that POT isn’t dangerous, please, listen to this person that called in to the show.  I have talked to people that sound similar with moderate and even “light” usage.  To say that it’s harmless is an illusion.  Those who say that it is, please, try and understand where the core of the assertion is.  If it’s simply that it’s too hard to control, then look at HOW it’s been attempted.

The drug dealers are crippling those who are their patronage.  Yet, the victims of this brain damage are so addicted that they protect their perpetrators.

Here is another – absolutely true.  But let the “government official” pot heads tell you that the only way is to legalize it.  Why not just give up our sovereignty as a nation, because it’s too hard to keep it.  Think about it.  Isn’t it just because the fed has been  inept at the punishments and deterrents?

The real reason why LAW enforcement isn’t working on drugs, is because there is no real “punishment.”  It’s more lucrative to continue the idea that the drug trade can’t be fixed, then to create a penal code with punishments and deterrents that MAKE SENSE.    Instead, the politician give politically correct lip service and g-d forbid you stand up and call them liars and inept.

California ‘High Risk’ Prisoners Wrongly Released Due to Computer Errors

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Published May 26, 2011

SACRAMENTO –  Computer errors resulted in some 450 inmates with “a high risk for violence” being wrongly released from California prisons, the Los Angeles Times reported in its Thursday edition.

On top of the 450, more than 1,000 prisoners, deemed to be at high risk of committing drug and property crimes, were also released into the community.

All the offenders were placed on “non-revocable parole” — a program that does not require them to report to parole officers. The program, which started in January 2010, was intended for inmates considered to be at low risk of reoffending.

Reviewing 200 case files of the 10,134 former inmates on non-revocable parole last July, investigators uncovered that 31 were not eligible for the program, while nine of the 31 were deemed likely to commit a violent crime.

It was estimated, using a 15 percent error rate found in the sample, that more than 450 violent prisoners were let go in the program’s first seven months.

However, the findings were disputed by prison officials who said that some of the computer glitches had since been corrected, making the margin of error eight percent, according to a report by the inspector general.

None of the wrongly-released offenders have since been placed on supervised parole or returned to jail, inspector general spokeswoman Renee Hansen said.

Authorities declined to name the concerned prisoners and would not say what crimes they had committed.

On Monday, a divided Supreme Court ordered California to reduce prison overcrowding, a decision that could force the release of tens of thousands of inmates.

Soldier imprisoned for killing a terrorist – Michael Behenna – Serving in FT Leavenworth 2 years of a 15 year sentence

March 18, 2011

I have read this case over and over.

This man should be given a medal and not a jail sentence.

This is not an OBAMA decision.  This was a Bush administration conviction.

Why?

This man is an honorable soldier just like the many out there that serve.  This is a travesty and the policies that guide these “wars” are travesties.  They should be brought home immediately.  This is not a legal way to wage ANY war and certainly not a MISSION of any ARMY

They are being put through a meat grinder.  The policies make it impossible to wage war not to mention kill the enemy.

Who’s the enemy?

These politicians that don’t believe that Islam is the enemy make the policies that our soldiers must live and die by.  Yet these people don’t know who the enemy is and wage war against US, the people, when we try to tell them.  They call us Racist.  Islam is not a RACE, Globalists are not a race.  The people of Islam and the globalists ARE the enemies and they are the ones who’ve been dictating the policies of this “WAR”.  THEY use POLITICAL Correctness to silence and bring about LIBEL suites as the tools to enforce silence.  These people have joined together because they have a common enemy. YOU —- The WEST.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

The mainstream media is complicit.

The government is hushing it up.

This is Communist era psychological warfare and it’s being waged against US.

 

Subject: 2 Years Down, 13 Years To Go!

 

 

To the thousands of Michael Behenna supporters,

On March 20th it will have been two years since Michael’s freedom was taken away from him.  Shortly after that horrific day he was publicly paraded through three airports en route to Ft. Leavenworth to begin serving a 25 year sentence for killing a known al-Qaida terrorist.  When Michael first went to prison he was bitter for the incredible injustice that had been done to him by a country he put his life on the line for.  But that bitterness was soon replaced by an attitude of inner peace and a desire to discover himself.

Today Michael works 5 days a week in exterior grounds maintenance, lifts weights in the prison gym, reads his numerous cards and letters, and has immersed himself in books sent to him or that he checks out from the prison library.  He is treated well at Leavenworth because many of the MP’s know that his situation is vastly different than most incarcerated there.  However, it is still a prison with the associated hardships of “groundhog day” monotony, violent flair-ups of inmates, strip searches, full prison lockdowns, and the predictable food menu every week.  He lives in his own cell and he finds solace among the other Leavenworth 10 soldiers who have been convicted of similar war crimes. They have been a Godsend for one another as they have a common bond and each are remarkable individuals and soldiers who have been entangled in a bizarre legal quagmire for unknown political purposes. Your generous contributions to Michael’s canteen account enable him to call home regularly and we are lucky enough to live a few hours away from Leavenworth so that either family or friends can visit him almost every weekend.

Michael recently wrote a letter about what he has learned while he has been in prison.  We wanted to share it with you now.

Since arriving in prison I have begun a journey of continuous refining of both my thought and my action; the way I relate to others, an appreciation for life, and self-understanding.  As Emerson once wrote ‘What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us’ and I am finding that what lies within us knows no limits.

I have no access to the outside world except through newspapers and magazines and phone calls and weekend visits with my family.  Yet I am not confined to my cell so long as I have books that take me to places I have never been.  Books have become my avenue to knowledge and it is through them that I have met some magnificent people whose lives have inspired me to not only continue my fight for freedom, but to find freedom behind these bars.

Solitude was necessary for me to know myself.  Once I began to truly know myself I began the journey of transformation. I have a notebook where I write down anything that I find meaningful in the books and letters I read.  I have learned that it is not how much one knows, but what one does with what one knows.

There is a story of an old Cherokee who told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside of every person – it is a battle between two wolves.  One wolf is life-taking:  it is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, guilt, arrogance, self-pity, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego.  The other wolf is life-giving:  it is joy, peace, love, hope serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.  The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather which wolf won.  The old Cherokee simply replied, ‘The one you feed’.  I am working on only feeding the wolf who gives life.

One of the most inspiring books I’ve received is called ‘Gives Me Hope’.  It is filled with true stories of kindness and generosity and I highly recommend it.  When I first came to prison I had very little hope and a whole lot of bitterness.  That is no longer the case.  To all those who have supported me through this struggle I want you to know from the bottom of my heart that YOU GAVE ME HOPE!  And still do…

As you can see, Michael’s attitude through this ordeal remains unbelievably good.  His greatest fear going to prison was that he would be forgotten.  Quite to the contrary (and to the dismay of the Army) Michael’s case is getting more attention than ever and there are things in the works that are going to put it in the spotlight even more so. Every week we hear from someone who tells us they knew nothing about Michael’s case until they saw a DefendMichael.com wristband or bumper sticker.  It is a grass roots effort that keeps getting bigger and bigger.

The status of Michael’s appeals currently sits with the Army Court of Appeals.  They should make a decision on the many legal issues of Michael’s case sometime later this year.

Keep spreading the word about Michael’s case and continue writing letters to your representatives.  And please keep sending Michael cards and letters that ‘Give Him Hope’.  That is a gift that we will be forever indebted to you for.

Pirates – International prison for pirates?

March 6, 2011

Anything INTERNATIONAL is always going to wind up being NOTHING.

The only reason why they all “agree” on the international thing is because they couldn’t care less about what the pirates do.  They also know that any international agreements would be broken because of this and that.   America needs to grow some…..

Paper tiger.

More accurately, paper kitten.

This is PATHETIC.  Whose brain child was this?

By what Constitutional authority does this President get to defer American justice to the “INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY?”

Pirate plans: An international prison for captured pirates is a step closer after a major international meeting to look at what to do with the maritime criminals and how to deal with them in courts. Source: PerthNow

 

An international anti-piracy meeting hammered out a new arrangement for how to handle captured pirates.

The international working group’s “mandate was … to find a solution to the (pirate) incarceration problem”, said Thomas Winkler, of the Danish foreign ministry’s judicial service, who heads the working group.

The international community is facing a large challenge of prosecuting the growing number of pirates off Somalia.

“You have to be able to prove that a person is a pirate for him to be prosecuted,” Winkler told said, pointing out that many captured pirates were released due to a lack of evidence.

Nonetheless, new numbers showed a total of 820 Somali pirates are behind bars in 16 different countries at the moment, he said, adding that his working group had been drawing up an international framework to help clarify how the pirates could be imprisoned.

 

“No country wants two, three, four hundred pirates sitting in their prisons for 15 to 20 years. That’s why the system is clogged,” he said, adding “they simply cannot have (pirates) lounging in the prisons. It is a big burden for their systems.”

<Thats why the NAVY had the authority to execute these vagrants. On the spot.  This is ridiculous!>

More than 100 delegates from about 45 countries and numerous international organisations, including NATO, the UN, the African Union and the European Union, and representatives of the shipping and maritime industries took part in the two-day meeting.

Winkler said the judicial framework, including respect for human rights and for sentences handed down in other countries, could pave the way for the UN-planned construction of two new special prisons for convicted pirates, in Puntland and Somaliland.

The two prisons would cost up to$A29 million and would hold 1000 prisoners, he said, adding that once the money was in place, “the prisons could be finished within a year”.

The Danish meeting took place just over a week after seven Danes, including three adolescents, were captured by pirates in the Indian Ocean about 550km from Somalia. They are still being held captive.

ACORN – Nevada – Las Vegas judge has spared senior ACORN executive Amy Adele Busefink jail time for her role in a notorious voter fraud conspiracy

January 12, 2011

No wonder voter fraud is sooo pervasive.  The penalty is worth the political imbalance.

If you were George Soros, then you would be willing to pay this small amount — a million times over— to have this much weight.

She was in charge of a program called “blackjack.” This program gave voter registration people cash bonuses for exceeding a daily quota of 20 or more.  She authorized the money.  This is the same as paying for votes.

This is on the level of Rangle’s EARLY DAYS.

The judge in this case has been bought and payed for by the “demo – Rat ” and “regressives.”

The mainstream slime media didn’t even cover it.

New Jersey – Man sent to jail for owning LEGAL guns

December 22, 2010

 

 

Without the SECOND AMENDMENT we will never be able to defend the First Amendment.

Hooray for Governor Christie for standing up to the Communists and allow this innocent man his freedom.  The only issue with it is that now, even though his “sentence” is commuted, the conviction still stands.  That’s not right!  Thats not justice.  That is a miscarriage of truth

 

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie Commutes Sentence of Man Sent to Jail for Owning Guns Legally:

Brian Aitken, 27, seen here in an undated photograph, was sentenced to seven years in prison for guns his attorney and father claim were owned legally. Some experts told FoxNews.com the entrepreneur was a victim of the country's "patchwork" of gun laws.

A man given seven years in prison after being found with two guns he purchased legally in Colorado has had his sentence commuted, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie announced Monday.

The case of Brian Aitken, 27, had become a cause célèbre among gun-rights advocates. On Jan. 2, 2009, Aitken, an entrepreneur and media consultant with no prior criminal record, muttered to his mother that life wasn’t worth living after a planned visit with son was abruptly canceled at the last minute. Aitken then left his mother’s home in Mount Laurel as she called police, who later found two locked and unloaded handguns in the trunk of his car.

Aitken had purchased the guns legally in Colorado, and he passed an FBI background check when he bought them, according to his father, Larry Aitken. Brian also contacted New Jersey State Police before moving back back to the Garden State to discuss how to properly transport his weapons. But despite those good-faith efforts, Larry Aitken said, Brian was convicted on weapons charges and sent to prison in August.

Judge James Morley would not allow the argument in trial earlier this year and Christie later declined to reappoint the judge due to an unrelated case.

According to an order for commutation of sentence released by Christie on Monday, Aitken was to be released from custody as soon as administratively possible. The order is subject to revocation at any time.

Prior to Monday’s announcement, Larry Aitken, who could not be immediately reached for comment on Tuesday, said he would not stop advocating for his son’s release.

“I don’t think there are words yet invented that could characterize the — I guess anger would be one word, but it’s a lot deeper than anger,” he told FoxNews.com this month. “Whatever the word is that’s a combination of anger, shock, disbelief, horror and a desire to expose all of this — that’s the word.

 

“This can’t happen. I won’t let this happen to my son.”

Brian’s relatives and his lawyer, Evan Nappen, believe he had a legal exemption to have the handguns in his car because they say he was in the process of moving from his parents’ home in Mount Laurel to Hoboken when the guns were found.

Nappen claimed the moving exemption issue was raised both during the trial and in a pretrial motion to have the entire case dismissed, but he said the jury was never given the exemption statute because Morley refused to provide it to them.

In an e-mail to FoxNews.com this month, Joel Bewley, a spokesman for the Burlington County prosecutor’s office, said “no evidence” was presented during the trial to support Aitken’s claim that he was moving at the time of his arrest. And despite an appearance on FoxNews.com’s “Strategy Room” in August 2009 to discuss his case, Aitken did not testify at his trial.

“However, his roommate testified that they had been sharing the Hoboken apartment since June 2008, and that he had seen the guns at the apartment in September 2008,” Bewley wrote. “[Aitken’s] mother testified that he had been living in Hoboken and working in New York City since June 2008. This incident occurred in January 2009.”

Regarding Aitken’s interview on the case, Bewley wrote: “While we fully recognize the defendant has a right not to testify, it is difficult to understand why he would grant an interview on national television, yet choose not to explain his actions to a jury when his liberty was at stake.”

Nappen, meanwhile, said Aitken’s case “absolutely” shows how states’ differing gun laws can put well-intentioned gun owners at risk.

“There’s a wide patchwork of gun laws between various jurisdictions and, in some states, it can differ from a local town that passes an ordinance to another town,” Nappen told FoxNews.com this month. “That’s why it’s so Draconian in its application and how you end up with a Brian Aitken situation.”

Mexico – Tamaulipas – 140 prisoners escape with staff assistance

December 18, 2010

Money talks and violence cracks heads.  Whats not to like?

The people have NO incentive to do the right thing.  They do what is least dangerous for them and if they get some money along the way, well then, all the better.

The cartels have the same attitude as HAMAS.  They want to overthrow the government in reality, but don’t want that flashlight on them.  They keep the “government” in place, because it’s easier to have a puppet government, then to have to PERFORM the services of the government and to have to participate in the above aboard negotiations.  They would rather keep JUST UNDER that radar.  It’s much more lucrative that way.

 

 

Mexico prison staff suspected in mass escape

Last Updated: Saturday, December 18, 2010 | 11:08 AM ET

CBC News

An intensive manhunt along Mexico’s northern border has failed to turn up any of the more than 140 prisoners who escaped from a federal prison.

The inmates apparently walked out unchallenged Friday through the main gate of the prison in the northeastern city of Nuevo Laredo.

Map of TamaulipasTamaulipas state security chief Antonio Garza told local radio that the prison’s director was reported as missing, along with the inmates.

Prison staff are under suspicion of being involved in the escape, the latest in a series of such incidents in Tamaulipas this year.

Garza said the vehicle entrance was used as the escape route, “presumably with the assistance of the prison staff.”

The last mass escape in Tamaulipas occurred in September when 85 inmates broke out of a prison in the northern border city of Reynosa.

The state has been plagued by a steady wave of violence tied to turf battles between the Gulf and Zetas drug gangs, but it was unclear whether members of those groups were among the inmates who escaped on Friday.

American soldiers in prison – Michael Behenna – An American HERO imprisoned, wrongfully – Freedom ride for awareness begins in Leavenworth

July 6, 2010

I just received an email from the Defend Michael campaign.

This soldier and a few others have been in prison FOR DEFENDING their country.  It’s wrong and reprehensible for them to be in prison.  Leavenworth is no joke and these soldiers are in prison for being moral and honorable.

The ARMY is giving out medals for soldiers to act in SEDITION.  They give medals for NOT fighting.  Our government is sending soldiers to their slaughter.  They are NOT supposed to fight.

Courageous Restraint?

Courageous Restraint?:

Posted by Alan W. Dowd on May 21st, 2010 and filed under FrontPage

“The notion that there needs to be a commendation for restraint is based on the false and faulty premise that U.S. forces haven’t used restraint to date. In fact, as Lt. Col. Tadd Sholtis told Navy Times, “Our young men and women display remarkable courage every day, including situations where they refrain from using lethal force, even at risk to themselves, in order to prevent possible harm to civilians.”

Indeed, the U.S. military is so self-restrained that the world doesn’t even notice. Just think about what happens when the U.S. military makes what we civilians, from 7,000 miles away, call a mistake: It court-martials people, changes target sets, scrubs missions, orders bombing pauses, investigates, apologizes and invests in ever-more precise weapons to prevent mistakes.”

I wish that I could be there.  I don’t have a bike, but I would be cheering.

To all Michael Behenna supporters,

The Ride is on!!! FREEDOM RIDE FOR THE LEAVENWORTH 10 is set for September 4, 2010 in Leavenworth, Kansas.  Motorcycles and vehicles of all kinds are welcome.   A new website has been created to keep you updated on this important and exciting event as well as to tell the stories of each of the Leavenworth 10 soldiers  (www.L10freedomride.com.)  We already have a commitment from Congressional candidate Lt. Colonel Allen West (Florida) to speak, in addition to the families of the Leavenworth 10.  We have received many responses from the media and people who want to participate in this event so we know it is going to be very successful.

The intent of the Freedom Ride is to bring awareness to how our soldiers are being imprisoned for killing the enemy during a time of war which one news commentator compared to ‘giving speeding tickets at a NASCAR race’.  These soldiers, serving multiple deployments, are provided complex and ever changing Rules of Engagement and then have to deal with untenable “Catch and Release” policies against an enemy the US military General’s have yet to figure out how to defeat.  An enemy that these same General’s have recently decided to release back to the battlefield on a ‘pledge’ that they won’t rejoin the Taliban.  This while our soldiers who took actions to protect themselves and their fellow soldiers are imprisoned from 10 to 40 years in Leavenworth and receive no clemency whatsoever.

The FREEDOM RIDE will originate in many states across this nation and culminate in Leavenworth on the morning of September 4th. We will assemble south of Leavenworth on HWY 73 and move in a procession north through the city of Leavenworth and then past the Leavenworth Base and Disciplinary Barracks where our soldiers are being held.  We know that traveling long distances on a holiday weekend to participate in this event is not without its challenges; but I want you to know how much this ride means to these soldiers who are imprisoned at Leavenworth.  By your show of support each of these soldiers will feel some hope in the knowledge that they have not been forgotten and that you have their back.  They have become casualties of war by their own government.  We need to show them that ‘we the people’ are fighting to get them exonerated.  If you are not able to attend the Freedom Ride then please consider making a donation at www.L10freedomride.com to help underwrite this important event.

As you think about this Independence Day consider that these 10 soldiers love the United States of America and chose to volunteer their service to this country.  They put themselves in harm’s way to protect the freedoms we all cherish.  Despite the fact that our military has construed their activities to be that of a criminal please know that each of them took action in a war zone because they thought it was the right thing to do and that their actions were not for personal gain. The military’s second-guessing of their actions does not erase the many years of honorable and distinguished service of these soldiers. Please remember each of these 10 soldiers and all our military on this FREEDOM holiday.

Finally, to get an idea of what kind of charismatic leader Lt Colonel Allen West is click on the following link (Speech by Lt Colonel West).  This is the kind of leadership we need in Congress.

It’s Time to Stand Up For the Leavenworth 10!!!
