I Think It Was a Combination of Unexpectedly Bright Lights Shining on Their Nasty Little Business

…and getting awfully close to that 19th of April date which, for some reason, the Feds seem drawn to like a FLAME for coming down heavy, and leaving somebody…in flames.

More: From the Las Vegas CBS affiliate:

LAS VEGAS — The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years.

The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte.

The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy’s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said she was thrown to the ground by an officer.

With more Bundy supporters pouring in from around the country, safety concerns began to grow.

The I-Team has learned the deal to end the gather was brokered by Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie.

Though, isn’t it ODD how eveything has to simmer down RIGHT QUICK when HARRY REID’S DIRTY DEALINGS get stirred into this righteous “deadbeat cowboy didn’t pay his fees and is torturing tortoises” mix?

Koch brothers, my ass.

Nice to have friends ride in to help. And MILLIONS of friends to pass the pictures ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.

Crimean Tatars Will Have to Vacate Land – Official

MOSCOW, March 18 (RIA Novosti) – Ukraine’s breakaway region of Crimea will ask Tatars to vacate part of the land where they now live in exchange for new territory elsewhere in the region, a top Crimean government official said Tuesday.

Crimean Deputy Prime Minister Rustam Temirgaliyev said in an interview with RIA Novosti on Tuesday the new government in Crimea, where residents voted Sunday to become part of Russia, wants to regularize the land unofficially taken over by Crimean Tatar squatters following the collapse of the Soviet Union.

“We have asked the Crimean Tatars to vacate part of their land, which is required for social needs,”

I’m sure our President will be PISSED when he gets off the course and finds out about this…right up until he finds out WHY they went all grabby pants.

For “social needs”?! Then it’ll be okey schmokey dokey. Might even see if they need some help with that.

…Temirgaliyev said. “But we are ready to allocate and legalize many other plots of land to ensure a normal life for the Crimean Tatars,” he said.

Temirgaliyev emphasized that members of the Tatar community could receive senior political positions in the new government, in an apparent move to ease ethnic tensions in the region.

“I think that Crimean Tatars will be well represented in the government and parliament,” he said.

I’ll BET they will! EVERY government needs janitors, sanitation engineers and road crews/ditch diggers.

Shovel ready jobs for the opposition.

Truth In Advertising

Shoot First, Ask Questions Later

This is SO HORRIFIC ~ and strikes so close to home, literally and figuratively ~ that I am SHAKING.

Shoot first, ask questions later method puts former Beckville resident in Alabama hospital

A Beckville graduate was shot in Alabama by an Opelika Police officer Thursday after the man stopped on the side of the interstate because of a minor traffic accident.

Air Force Airman 1st Class Michael Davidson, a 2012 graduate of Beckville High School, is in now in East Alabama Medical Center after undergoing extensive life saving surgery, his father, Billy Davidson said.

The shooting happened Thursday night, March 6 on the side of I-85 between the Torbert Road and West Point Parkway exits.

…according to his dad. “Apparently, Michael’s vehicle and a ‘diesel rig’ were involved in a minor accident,” Billy said, “and they pulled to the side of the interstate to exchange information. He got his billfold out and was going to talk to the driver.”

Michael never got to speak to the driver of the truck.

“He remembers hearing a yell coming from someone behind him. He saw the reflection of flashing lights on the truck he was beside, and realizing it was the police, raised his arms and turned around.”

That’s when Officer Phillip Hancock, a seven-year veteran with OPD, shot Michael in the stomach.

…Other officers responded to the scene. “Michael remembers seeing the officers searching his vehicle while he was laying on the ground. He tried to sit up and asking why he was shot, but he was pushed back to the ground and told to stay down,” his dad said.

Billy said details were sketchy after that because his son, who had lost a lot of blood, passed out.

The bullet hit an artery in his stomach and damaged organs. Billy said he was told they almost lost Michael several times during the surgery. “He lost so much blood they ran out of blood and had to use blood expanders,” Billy said.

Michael’s parents were not notified of the shooting until around noon the following day.

Speechless. Ebola just came across country, like this Airman was doing, checking in with his dad the whole way, like this Airman was doing.

His folks KNEW something was wrong when he didn’t get back with them by that evening at the latest. So THEY got to lose their minds worrying.

Then to find out your son had been practically shot in cold blood and left BLEEDING TO DEATH by the side of the road, while these GOMERS “LAW ENFORCEMENT” types ignored him?

As a mother, I’m just sick at heart for his suffering and his folks’.

As a CITIZEN?

I hope they OWN these assholes.

Mass. High Court: Subway Upskirt Photos Not Illegal

Massachusetts’ highest court has ruled that a man accused of secretly snapping photos up a woman’s skirt on an MBTA train did not break the law.

The State Supreme Judicial Court on Wednesday dismissed charges against Michael Robertson of Andover, who was arrested in August 2010 by transit police.

…“Because the MBTA is a public transit system operating in a public place and uses cameras, the two alleged victims here were not in a place and circumstance where they reasonably would or could have had an expectation of privacy,” a draft of the ruling stated.

So Massachussetts will TAKE YOUR CHILD AWAY, even if you live in a different state, but, God forbid you wear a SKIRT OUTSIDE THE HOUSE.

EX-NEW ORLEANS MAYOR RAY NAGIN FOUND GUILTY OF CORRUPTION, TAKING BRIBES WHILE IN OFFICE


Not only was he a miserable, DEMOCRATIC, inept, short-bus/short-OF-buses, lying sack-of-shit FAILURE, he’s a CONFIRMED thief, too.

Imagine that.

ths update: Oh for cripes’ sake. Try to find a (D) or the word “Democrat” ANYWHERE in this BBC story about the verdict.

“…Mayor of the city from 2002-10, he was criticised for failing to implement his evacuation plan when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005….”

“Criticised”? He LEFT HIS PEOPLE TO DIE.

Seems to be the thing for these Democrats to do.

There were LOTS of buses, but, really. What difference would it make?

ObamaCare = Cancelled Insurance = Put Your Kids On Medicaid

I’ve been looking for this for two days. Gobsmacking.

…The Benjamin family pays $1,788.00 for their current private health care plan, which covers the entire family, but no longer meets the requirements of the Obamacare law.

The Benjamins could buy separate policies without subsidies, but it would cost their family $16,000 at the very least.

Experts say that putting children on Medicaid has many drawbacks, including the small number of doctors who will accept it, a concern echoed by Benjamin:

Now I’m just going to hope and pray that they’re [the kids] not going to need to go to the doctor.

Lying liars who lied.

…Further, the quick response force that was mobilized, a FAST team of Marines in Rota, Spain, was forced to deplane and change out of their uniforms before flying to Libya, committee members learned.

“When we got people down do you really have — do you really actually let somebody push the military around and say, well, you are in the wrong uniform,” Chaffetz asked in disbelief.

Is that really a reason to delay the FAST team coming in to protect Americans, that they are not wearing a t-shirt?

Oh, and LANE CLOSURES!

Rebels wound US soldiers in South Sudan

KAMPALA, Uganda — Rebel fire hit two U.S. military aircraft responding to the outbreak in violence in South Sudan on Saturday, wounding three U.S. service members and heavily damaging at least one of the aircraft, officials said. South Sudan blamed the attack on renegade troops in control of the breakaway region.

The U.S. military aircraft were heading to Bor, the capital of the state of Jonglei and scene of some of the nation’s worst violence over the last week. One American service member was reported to be in critical condition. Officials said after the aircraft took incoming fire, they turned around and headed to Kampala, Uganda. From there the service members were flown on to Nairobi, Kenya for medical treatment, the officials said.

Plus, he’s on VACATION now, so good luck hearing that “FUGGEDABOUDIT” from anybody at all.

A Happy Update

In a wonderful story, folks have made sure they’ll stay together

A blind man who nearly died after falling onto subway train tracks will get to keep the loyal dog who tried to save him – thanks to New Yorkers who whipped out their checkbooks to help the duo stay together.

Cecil Williams, 61 – whose 11-year-old pooch, Orlando, leaped onto the tracks after his master fainted on Tuesday – said the lovable lab will retire as a seeing-eye dog and become a pet with the help of donation money.

Williams, who will get a new service dog because Orlando is too old, had planned to give up his furry pal because his insurance plan doesn’t cover the living cost of non-working dogs, he said.

Donation cash will now pay for Orlando’s vet bills and food, which Williams said fills him with joy.

“The spirit of giving, Christmas and all that – it exists here. It’s in New York,” he said, in tears, at St. Luke’s hospital on Wednesday.

“Orlando, he’s my best buddy. He’s my pal. He takes me on the train. He takes me on the buses. He takes me everywhere I need to go. He’s a very gentle, gentleman,” he said.

No bureaucrats, no red tape.

There was an existing need and the People addressed it immediately.

If the Government had decided it would “help” Mr. Williams, imagine how much time it would have taken them, and imagine how much it would have cost if it ever actually got done.

In fact, I fear that the government will get their revenge and punish Mr. Williams as I expect them to declare that the monies raised now render him ineligible for whatever public benefits he currently receives…

TEN THOUSAND PLUS DEAD, Millions in Dire, Terrible Need and the Politically Correct, Ever-So-Educated HuffPo Crowd

…is putting out tweets like this:

GOD, their self-absorbed smugness BURNS MY ASS.

I’ve NEVER met ANYBODY like the Salvation Army in a major disaster zone and I’ve been in THREE. They’re the first in, the last to leave and they work their asses off 24/7 to help EVERY SINGLE SOUL IN NEED, it doesn’t matter if you’re black, white, orange, green, purple, gay, bi, straight or zombie. They want YOU taken care of as best they can and they do it.

From a previous post with Hurricane Katrina overhead:

UPDATE: While I can get online, let me first thanks Bingster for posting this, but please, please let me add my fervent appeal for your donations to go to the Salvation Army. We have unfortunately gotten to see all the aid agencies in action. The Salvation Army has impressed us tremendously with their selflessness and dedication to people’s immediate needs and their continuing ones. They were literally a Godsend after Ivan and stuck around through thick and thin for months afterwards. For everybody. Feeding people, clothing them, sheltering them, holding hands, getting answers. If you need it, they’re there if there’s anyway on earth possible for them to be.

Not to mention the fact, they have the infrastructure, knowledge and well-oiled disaster relief machines to do it. With the ADDED BONUS that EVERY DOLLAR YOU SEND FOR THAT DISASTER GOES to RELIEF IN THAT DISASTER. Not like the predatious Red Cross (and other “relief organizations”), who reserve the right to use those dollars where “they see the need”, like headquarters, salaries and jaunts.

Oh, I am HOT.

ths update: Wow. She actually paid attention to my tweets in reply defending the Salvation Army. And learned something. How really nice. (And I MEAN that in the NICEST way possible.)

I Guess They Wanted Her To Be Well Grounded In Her Studies

Hillary was wrong: it doesn’t take a village to raise a child, it takes voltage

A Connecticut couple was arrested for punishing a 9-year-old girl by strapping an electric dog collar around the child’s throat and forcing her to bark until she was zapped.
Eduardo Montanez, 43, placed the PetSafe bark collar on the little girl inside their Danbury home last week, after she came home from school with a disappointing progress report, police said.

We Remember Like It Was Yesterday

Thirty years ago today. The HORROR.

‘The worst part for me is that nobody remembers’: Retired Carmel Marine recalls 1983 Beirut bombings

The massive suicide bombing that ripped apart the four-story Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, early Oct. 23, 1983 — killing 241 U.S. troops — violently shook Carmel resident Mark Nevells and other Marines from their Sunday morning slumber, he remembers.

“I grabbed my gear and ran to the barracks,” Nevells, who was 21 and a lance corporal with what was then the 24th Marine Amphibious Unit’s service support group during the terrorist attack, recalled Friday. “We watched as the building dropped then we went over for the recovery mission. There were so many people in that building and we just wanted to get them out.”

The explosion was so violent that it created an 8-foot crater and buried Nevells’ friends and brothers-in-arms under 15 feet of the building’s rubble. He and other Marines spent five days digging for survivors and freeing the bodies of the men they served with during the multinational peacekeeping mission.

“That was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done,” Nevells said while wearing a black Beirut veteran’s hat honoring those who perished during the bombing. “We just did what we had to do.

As always, I recommend The Root by Eric Hammel, if you can find a copy.

So they had to RECALL a FURLOUGHED WORKED to come back in SPECIFICALLY to SHUT the AmberAlert website down.

Catholic Priests Risk Arrest If They Voluntarily Perform Mass on Base During Shutdown

For reals.

Shutdown Impacts Chapel Services

…There is a chronic shortage of active duty Catholic chaplains. While roughly 25% of the military is Catholic, Catholic priests make up only about 8% of the chaplain corps. That means approximately 275,000 men and women in uniform, and their families, are served by only 234 active-duty priests. The temporary solution to this shortage is to provide GS and contract priests. These men are employed by the government to ensure that a priest is available when an active duty Catholic Chaplain is not present. With the government shutdown, many GS and contract priests who minister to Catholics on military bases worldwide are not permitted to work – not even to volunteer.

During the shutdown, it is illegal for them to minister on base and they risk being arrested if they attempt to do so.

Is he Obama or Oliver Cromwell?

ths update: More news types have gotten on this since Ebola let me know about it. Todd Starnes at Fox has more:

The U.S. military has furloughed as many as 50 Catholic chaplains due to the partial suspension of government services, banning them from celebrating weekend Mass. At least one chaplain was told that if he engaged in any ministry activity, he would be subjected to disciplinary action.

“In very practical terms it means Sunday Mass won’t be offered,” Archbishop Timothy Broglio of the Archdiocese for the Military Services told me. “If someone has a baptism scheduled, it won’t be celebrated.”

…the military installations impacted are served by non-active-duty priests who were hired as government contractors.

…“Catholic military personnel should not have their religious liberties held hostage by this funding crisis,” Crews told me. “I find it alarming that these priests cannot even volunteer to provide services without threat of arrest.”

The archbishop said a priest at Joint Base Langley-Eustis was banned from officiating at the wedding of a couple he’d been counseling.

“The wedding could be on the base, but the priest can’t do the wedding,” Broglio told me.

So There Are More WWII Honor Flight Vets Headed to the Memorial Today

Per Obama Administration orders, the National Park Service is ready…

Hope Gramps got through on the Health.gov website yesterday…

ths update: IMAGINE THAT

The #BARRYCADES are coming down, STAT.

Hah.

Bad ASS

And a TOTAL shout out to their Congressmen, who MOVED the barriers/distracted the police, so the Vets could storm the memorial.

THEIR Memorial.

The Memorial that stands free to all in the open air, without fence or gate or guard, 24/7, until the President of the United States PUT BARRIERS THERE.

Another Honor Flight from Arkansas is due in this weekend, I think.

Bet they’re full of piss and vinegar just THINKING about it.
