Not dead yet!

Since Jugears mandated that NASA become a Muslim outreach agency, America's space program has been taken over by private interests.

Serious scientific research - at no cost to the taxpayer!

Please - tell us!

Just where will it be legal to carry a gun in Illinois?

Law has tricky mix of where it's legal for permit holder to have gun

Well, it WAS crafted by Demonrats...
For example, the law prohibits guns at events where there is a large gathering of people, like neighborhood street festivals. But it allows people with guns to walk through a public gathering on the way home, to work or to their car.

That means, according to some firearms instructors, that people could legally walk through the crowd at the South Side Irish Parade with a gun tucked in their belt but they couldn't hang around and watch the performances.
And although the law forbids guns in public parks, nothing in the statute prohibits someone from carrying a gun on a trail or bike path that goes through a park.
In other words, firearms instructors said, it's OK to arm yourself while riding a bike through the Cook County Forest Preserves, but you'd better not get off your bike to use the bathroom.
"It's like a Byzantine maze," said Colleen Lawson, owner of Lawson Handgun Institute, a firearms training facility on the North Side. "It's possible to get through it without breaking any laws, but it's tricky."
Bottom line - carry at your own risk in Ill-Annoys, especially if you have a IL state CCW permit. Criminals and gang members will get a pass, as they have in the past.
There are serious penalties for violations. The first offense is a Class B misdemeanor, which has a maximum penalty of 180 days in jail and a $2,500 fine. A second violation is a Class A misdemeanor, which could result in up to a year in jail, a $2,500 fine and a six-month suspension of the concealed carry license. A three-time offender could get the same jail sentence, the same fine and a permanent revocation of the concealed carry license.
Again, no worries unless you are law-abiding.

Loophole in Ill-Annoys?

We all know Ill-Annoys was dragged kicking and screaming into the modern world by a court order requiring them to enact a concealed carry law.

This they did - in the most difficult and irritating way possible. Chicago, of course, is allowed special latitude in refusing CCW permits.

Of course, seeing as the legislation was in part crafted by those paragons of legal knowledge, Chicago Demonrats, we get this:

From the CCW Reciprocity web site (sic):
Illinois allows residents of other states carry a concealed firearm in their vehicle if they are can legally carry a firearm in public under the laws of their state or territory of residence and are not prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm under federal law. 
So, ANY Wisconsin resident can carry concealed in their vehicle, since Wisconsin does not require a CCW to carry a gun in public - just if you want to "conceal" it.

Smart people, those Chicago Demonrats!

Please note - you carry a gun in the People's Republik of Ill-Annoys at your own risk...even with an Illinois CCW...

The Progressive BIll of Rights

Amendment I.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of minority religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of minority speech, or of the press; or the right of minority persons peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Any majority religion or group is specifically excluded from this Amendment.

Amendment II.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to call 911 or join the National Guard, shall not be infringed.

Amendment III.

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law. Law to be decided by the Commander in Chief on the fly.

Amendment IV.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized, unless the local police authority decides there is something he or she does not like about the situation, or there's an anonymous call-in that makes someone think there's something going on that someone might object to.

Amendment V.

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Clarification: "presentment" should have been "presentiment". Precrome was definitely in the mind of the Founders when this was written - they just lacked modern spell checkers.

Amendment VI.

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence- except in cases that might prove embarrassing to the Establishment, in which case, star chamber courts are mandatory.

Amendment VII.

In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law. This Amendment shall not apply to any suit brought by a governmental authority, especially in matters of ordinance or traffic violations.

Prejudging by the media is specifically protected by the First Amendment, with guidance from official Government sources.

Amendment VIII.

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted, except in cases of racism or thought crime. Special attention is to be given to crimes of imagination perpetrated in the public education venue.

Amendment IX.

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people, especially the right to demand rights not enumerated here.

Amendment X.

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Since "the people" is the definition of the government of the United States, this amendment is essentially meaningless.

"Legal" ways to avoid JugearsCare

Why should we have to resort to "loopholes" to get health care?

Eight Ways to Opt Out of ObamaCare

You still get to pay the "fine" for not playing by the "rules".

The best solution is to vote all of them out, and reduce the federal government to its' Constitutionally approved duties.

Zero tolerance

Well said!
The age of crackpot zero tolerance nonsense needs to come to an end.
As a child, I played cops and mobsters, cowboys and Indians and army vs army. If I was a child today I probably would have been locked up on someone’s terrorism watch list as would most of us over the age of 25.
What has led me to this belief? Because the Imagination Nazis are out in force, goosestepping all over imagination and childhood play. Banning toy guns apparently isn’t good enough for some “educators” like the South Eastern School District in Pennsylvania.
This school district has the tagline: “Providing Progressive Education to Strengthen the Global Community”.
With a motto like that is it any wonder that the powers that be suspended a 10 year old boy, Johnny Jones, for pantomiming a bow and arrow?
Tar and feathers, folks - and a rail to "ride 'em out of town".

Proof the MSM is scripted

Maybe I need to start watching Conan O'Brien...


Found here.

Actually, this is nothing new - ever since wire services like Associated Press have existed, newspapers have printed identical stories as filler. Why should TV and, possibly, radio, be any different?

Now, if Mr. O'Brien can provide a similar sequence involving a political hot button, like a school shooting or the "knockout game"....

Note - If the videos above don't both show Conan O'Brien, but videos from an earlier post, it's Blogger's bug. Perhaps this edit will fix things.

Politicians try to fix stuff

Usually, they make things worse.

"The War on Poverty"
"The War on (some) Drugs"
"Cash for Clunkers"
Glowbull worming - oops - "Climate Change"
"The New Deal" "Quantitative Easing"
"Affirmative Action "
Minimum wages

Now comes a Demonrat from New Jersey, Sen. Robert Menendez, angry that Target could screw up and expose millions of credit-card purchasers to fraud. He's got a sure-fire plan to fix things.

Let the SEC "fine" companies that lose customer's credit card or other personal information to hackers.

Great. The customers lose to the hackers, the stores get a federal fine - that goes right into the federal black hole, and the stores in turn raise prices to recoup their fine.

Everyone is happy, except the cheated customers, who still must deal with their deflicted credit card, and anyone who shops, as the prices go up to cover the new legal expenses.

I've got a real simple law that they could pass - make any retailer or credit-card company that loses customer information liable for every fraudulent charge and credit score loss suffered by any customer, along with a punitive fine payable directly - and tax-free - to the cheated customers. The stores might still raise their prices, but I'll bet they will be real careful with private information, knowing that they will have to pay for all the purchases a hacker might make, as well as paying the cheated for their time and trouble.

And, the federal government will never see a penny of that money.

Now - how could we make that idea work with outfits like the FDA and the EPA?

Gotta keep the (Demonrat) voters happy!

Senate Dems: Illegal immigrant welfare over veteran benefits

Most veterans are unlikely to vote for Jugears' crowd, I guess - besides - they've done their job and are now disposable.

I don't call them "Demonrats" for nothing - they are EVIL.

Why we need Voter ID

I'm not one for government IDs, normally - but the enemy forces you to do unpleasant things sometimes.

Non-citizens caught voting in 2012 presidential election in key swing state

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced Wednesday that his office found 17 non-citizens illegally cast ballots in the 2012 presidential election -- and has referred the case for possible prosecution. 
The alleged crime would be a notable case of voter fraud in a key swing state. By law, only American citizens are allowed the privilege of casting ballots for the nation's leaders.
And here in Wisconsin, it's an imposition on "the poor" (who need government ID to get welfare and all the other free stuff!) to ask them to show citizenship to vote.

And Nancy Pee-Lousy keeps telling us shipping illegals back to where they came from is "just wrong" = primarily because they can be counted on to vote Demonrat?

Go vote - free call!

Gateway crime

"Carrying a loaded firearm is the gateway crime to committing a murder," McCarthy said.

Video at the link.Beware - it keeps going - and going - and going...

I'm sure that every Chicago policeman, including my father, if he was still on this plane, would be surprised to know that as part of their duty, they were participating in the furtherance of murder...

Political appointees like McCarthy do not speak for the police - they speak for the mayor and the ruling political party - and the Demonrats will NEVER admit the fact that more guns in the hands of law-abiding people will bring a decrease in crime.

Celebrating "only 400-odd" murders as a good thing is insane. None of the guns involved in those murders acted alone - each was wielded by a criminal.

Government - looking out for you!

The VA drops the ball - big time. VA ID cards have easily accessible personal identification embedded:

Pearl Harbor

In 1941 we had a Socialist President who ignored the Constitution and forced through a bunch of legislation that has resulted in lasting damage to America.

The Japanese took advantage of our apparent weakness to attack Pearl Harbor. Unfortunately for them, FDR was still an American, and our people were able to switch from a "peacetime" mentality to a wartime footing overnight. America still had a massive industrial base, and millions of skilled laborers, many who were out of work because of the Great Depression. We put together the greatest military force the world had ever seen and defeated both the Japanese and the Nazis, and after, we helped the world rebuild.

Ever since the 1960s, America has enacted law after law all intended to fix social ills or to "protect" the environment. The main result of these laws has been to institutionalize poverty and drive heavy industry offshore.

Today, we have a Socialist President that makes FDR look like a Reagan Republican, and we have foreign enemies who would love to see us brought low. Our military is being systematically stripped of leadership and hamstrung by social engineering.

Will history repeat? I doubt Jugears is capable of leading us anywhere but into Hell.

Tammy Gay shows her true colors

A friend of mine recently contacted Tammy Gay about impeachment of our traitorous "President" Jugears Osama. Here's her reply:

Subject: A message from Senator Tammy Baldwin
From: Senator Tammy Baldwin

Thank you for contacting regarding your support to impeach and remove President Obama from office. 
Our nation's founders created a system of checks and balances, providing for congressional oversight as a fundamental part of ensuring co-equal branches of government.  I took an oath of office to uphold the Constitution.  I take that sacred pledge very seriously.
The president and vice president of the United States also take an oath of office, swearing to "...preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."  This commitment and obligation is so fundamental to our democracy that our nation's founders proscribed that oath in our Constitution.
Article II, Section 4 of our Constitution clearly delineates that the removal of the president and vice president for, is for among other things, "high crimes and misdemeanors."  Impeachment is the ultimate power that Congress has to prevent and punish abuse of power from the Executive and Judicial branches.
President Obama and Vice-President Biden in no way qualify for the strict provisions detailed in our Constitution for impeachment.
It is important that the integrity of our checks and balances remain in place through the careful use of the constitutional powers given to each branch of government.  I do not believe in using the ultimate power that Congress has to check the Executive and Judicial Branches for partisan ends.  Please be assured that I will continue to protect the constitutional prerogatives of Congress and guard against excess power from any branch.
Once again, thank you for contacting my office. It is important for me to hear from the people of Wisconsin on the issues, thoughts and concerns that matter most to you. If I can be of further assistance, please visit my website at for information on how to contact my office.
Tammy Baldwin
United States Senator
:I took an oath of office to uphold the Constitution.  I take that sacred pledge very seriously."
One wonders which Constitution she is referring to. She has certainly voted for enough un-Constitutional  legislation in her time in the House and as a senator.
 "President Obama and Vice-President Biden in no way qualify for the strict provisions detailed in our Constitution for impeachment."
Bowing down to foreign princes and kissing their hands?
Giving material aid in the form of tax money stolen from US citizens to our country's sworn enemies?
Intentionally violating the laws he himself signed?
Directly attacking the Bill of Rights - especially advocating direct violations of the Second Amendment?

Biden might not have done anything actionable - being an idiot and a tame parrot isn't a high crime or misdememanor..

The tyrant rants

Looks like Jugears is getting testy:

Obama Orders IRS to Shutdown Non-Profits That Speak Out Against Him
 Obama orders the IRS to shutdown non profits that speak out against him

One of those websites that prohibits quoting - go read.
In another dictatorial move to squelch any and all opposition to his socialist dictatorship, President Obama’s administration has ordered the IRS to take action against all non-profits classified as social welfare 501(c)4 groups involved in political activities.  This move appears to be targeting conservative groups and PACs such as Crossroads GPS and Priorities USA, both of which have been very vocal in their opposition to Obama and his policies.
On Tuesday, the IRS and Treasury Department offered up a new set of rules that would forbid non-profit organizations from being involved in any ‘candidate-related political activity.’  The banned activities would include registering voters, distributing campaign literature and running campaign related advertisements.

UN coming for our guns?


UN Troops Told To Kill Americans That Don’t Give Over Their Guns

New information has come to light as Obama continues his unconstitutional drive toward stricter gun control.  We all remember how after the tragedy at Sandy Hook quite the uproar was heard throughout the country and whether stricter gun laws would help.  This was met with strong opposition, and immediately shut down the government’s attempts of hindering the second amendment.
Unfortunately one state was able to infringe on these freedoms when the NY SAFE Act was signed into law.
After Obama was silenced on the issue, he took the only other way he knew how.  Instead of going through our country’s court, he is attempting to pass a law through the World’s Court – the UN.

Standing offer

I said this a while back - "give me your "smart gun" and I'll make it work like a regular firearm in a hour".

OK. Looks like I might be able to hope for a test of my claim - all I need is for these folks to ship me a sample.

Armatix GmbH intends to market a "smart gun" here. Story at Alphecca. Their first model is a .22, but larger calibers are easy once you have a mechanism worked out.

A 2002 New Jersey law makes use of this mandatory for anyone in that People's Republik wanting to purchase a handgun within three years after the "smart" gun goes on the market.

Aside from the obvious conflict with the Second Amendment, this is a disaster waiting to happen. If the police are armed with these, look for some smart hacker to develop an area jammer that will disable all RF controlled "smart" guns within range. Following that, look for the police being targeted by criminals wanting to steal these guns, and modify them to shoot uncontrolled by the neat digital watch. If the gun is equipped with their "Target Response System", hackers could make themselves a "no shoot" zone. From their website:
The gun only functions if you are recognized and on target.
  • If you are aiming away from the target area, the pistol is immediately deactivated.
  • No misuse against people or objects around you.
Armatix target shooting with no compromise on safety!

I'm going to send a request for a sample to these folks. I'll let you know the response, if any - and if I do get hold of one, I'll be careful to document my investigation and success or lack thereof.

Here's what I sent on their contact page:
I am a consulting electrical engineer, federally licensed firearms dealer, gunsmith and blogger. I have a standing offer to anyone claiming a "smart gun" - give me a sample, and I'll hack it to work like a regular "dumb" gun.

If you feel up to the challenge, let me know and I'll send my FFL number and such. If I succeed, the procedure and results will be published in my blog
If I fail, I'll publish that fact, also.

I believe a "smart gun" is an impossibility given modern technology, and will only result in people taking needless risks or being endangered by system failures or hackers. Let's see if you can prove me wrong.
I've never made a YouTube video - this might be my big break!

Open carry in Neenah, Wisconsin

Recently in Neenah, two guys were out for a walk, one carrying a rifle. Somewhat unusual in downtown Neenah, perhaps, but nothing to get all worked up over.

First we have the 911 call that triggered the incident:

And the dashcam from the responders:

The officer gets a bit wordy here, but he's got something of a point. PSH do fear people carrying weapons.

The solution is not to hide our weapons but to desensitize the public to regular carry. This should not be seen as am unusual situation.

This cop tells us that if he sees me "walk into a gas station" carrying, he's going to cap me. I guess I've been really lucky, since I've open carried into several Beloit gas stations - and never got a look, except for the clerk with the Middle Eastern accent who wanted me to show him my gun - I declined...

Link to the YouTube page with lots more open carry videos.

Must read speech

Utah Senator Mike Lee addressed the Heritage Foundation recently. His speech needs to be read by every American and especially by all of our "leaders"

The concept of "America" has been a "war on poverty" from the beginning - LBJ's formal "war on poverty" has been a resounding failure - as are all socialist / big government projects in the end.

If we heed Senator Lee's advice, the only people left in poverty will be those who refuse to do anything about it.


"We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it”
A physician called into a radio show and said:
"That's the definition of a stool sample".

Freedom of association

It's ironic - here in Wisconsin we have a law "stripping" public unions of much of their power to blackmail and extort pay increases and benefits from the taxpayers. This law is, of course, being contested by the people who would have to live within the budgets the people of Wisconsin can afford, otherwise.

I just heard one sound bite of a union member telling us that the Constitution prohibits laws that affect "freedom of association" - so membership in unions should be protected.

OK, I'll accept that anyone has a right to associate with anyone they choose. Allowing that association the power to command the people to pay them does not seem to be mentioned anywhere in the Constitution that I can find.

As much as I abhor what FDR did to our country with his "New Deal", he at least had the intelligence to prohibit public unions - so there was no extortion until Wisconsin led the way with allowing public unions in the late '50's.

It's also ironic that the same people who are screaming for the "right to associate" as they will are likely also those who support things like the new push for "ENDA" in CONgress - a law that will further prohibit people from associating as they desire.

Religion of peace?

Perhaps, for some values of "peace" - but definitely a religion of grand theft from anyone who isn't a devout Muslim (of the right polarity).

U.S. imam: Muslims can take the property of Christians and Jews

In his sermon/lecture in the YouTube audio below, Qadhi begins by calling Christians “shirk” for being “polythesists” who believe in the Triune God, instead of Islam’s “monotheist” god Allah. Since “there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah wuzza wuzza,” Christians are “by necessity and by definition … the most evil of all evils.” Like all “unbelievers” and “polytheists.” Christians are “filthy.” They are ”najusa” (feces, urine) — “a filthy impure dirty substance.”
Then Qadhi declares that the prophet Mohammad — and by extension all Muslims — “has been commanded to do jihad.”
What is jihad?
Jihad “is a means to establish monotheism on the land.” The prophet had said, “I have been commanded to fight the people until they” convert to Islam. But “if they don’t [convert to Islam,] their life and property are halal [free for the taking] for the Muslims.”

Their own words. This is what a devout Muslim believes.

When will our government take notice of what is happening right here, right now?

Well, as long as we have a Muslim-loving president, never.

When "mainstream" Islam begins to publicly disavow people like Qadhi, I'll start to believe they might be thinking of peaceful co-existence with other religions. Until then:


The power has to come from SOMEWHERE

and solar plus wind ain't going to do it:

California's First-in-Nation Energy Storage Mandate

California has adopted the United States' first energy storage mandate, requiring the state's three major power companies to have electricity storage capacity that can output 1325 megawatts in place by the end of 2020, and 200 MW by the end of next year. The new rule issued by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) will be key to implementation of the state's ambitious renewable portfolio rules, which calls for 33 percent of delivered electricity to come from renewable sources by 2020 and virtually guarantees that California, along with Germany, will remain in the world vanguard of those aggressively building out wind and solar.
[Editor's note: For an explanation of why the mandate is expressed in units of power instead of energy follow this link.]
By common expert consent, wind and solar can only reach their full potential if storage is provided for, as otherwise little-used generating capacity must be held in reserve for the times the wind does not blow and the sun does not shine. California's landmark rule was written by Commissioner Carla Peterman, newly appointed to the CPUC late last year by Governor Jerry Brown.
 Even with "storage" - and this mandate requires the use of the most expensive methods available, instead of older, less "efficient" means like pumping water into a high reservoir and using hydroelectric generators.

Those batteries either use expensive and dangerous chemicals like lithium compounds, or they use cheap and dangerous chemicals like lead and sulfuric acid. Knowing Kalifornia, you can guess which technology will be chosen. Batteries also have a finite life - someone will have to pay to replace them regularly, and dispose of or recycle the old cells.

Flywheels with energy density high enough to be worthwhile are essentially big fragmentation grenades. Engineers know that highly stressed structures tend to fail spectacularly, and spend a lot of time on designing containment structures - that cost a lot of money and energy to produce.

We have ample energy available in nuclear and future thorium-nuclear power plants. For the interim, "clean coal" technology exists that can also provide the thorium cycle with fuel.

We had clean, safe nuclear power available twenty years ago, in the form of the Argonne Labs' IFR project - that was killed by President Clinton, at a cost higher than allowing the project to be completed would have been.

(Damn, Slick Willie has a lot to answer for - he killed the Superconducting Supercollider in Texas, too. So many Demonrat Presidents have done so much to hamstring humanity's advance...)

It does not suit the plans of the New World Order and the international Communist movement to allow the use of energy sources that are cheaper and truly sustainable, because these sources tend to make people independent of governments. Wind farms and solar farms can only exist with governmental subsidies - no corporation on Earth would touch these technologies in the volume they exist today unless they were getting healthy amounts of money from somewhere - and turbines and solar farms can never economically justify themselves.

I would love to see an accounting of how much dirty energy is required to produce one wind farm turbine - versus how much "clean" energy that turbine will produce over it's lifetime. Or, how much energy and toxic waste is involved in making a lithium cell for commercial energy storage. Is there a break-even, or a net loss?

Here's why we need Voter ID laws

Evidence of Widespread Voter Fraud Found in Virginia Governor’s Race

Richmond, VA–Merely hours after the close of a bitter and divisive Governor’s race in Virginia that saw Democrat Terry McAuliffe pull out a win over Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, irregularities in voting data have emerged.  According to mainstream media outlets McAuliffe supposedly defeated Cuccinelli in a razor-thin 47-46 percent victory to become the next Governor of the great state of Virginia.
Immediately following the announcement, Cuccinelli’s office opened a full investigation into the legitimacy of the vote and quickly turned up surprising results.  In 13 districts, multiple instances of intimidation at the polls were reported.  Large black men wearing traditional Black Panther garb were reported lingering around polling places approaching older voters asking questions about who they intended on voting for.  In Loudoun and Fairfax counties (traditional Democratic strongholds), election officials withheld submitting voter data in order to get an idea of whether to count absentee ballots or not.  In an audit of the voter registration information, it quickly became apparent that MULTIPLE votes were cast by people who were either deceased or had long ago moved out of the district.
According to exit polling Cuccinelli won the race by big margins reaching a high percent of the key voting blocks of women, Latinos and Blacks.
Cuccinelli was a target of large amounts of out of state financing as the Democrats set out to make the race be a referendum against the Tea Party movement.  McAuliffe got a late boost from Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as Joe Biden, who campaigned hard for the Democrat.
The Demonrats know full well that they will lose in a fair election - so they cheat.

Here in Wisconsin we hear that we don't need Voter ID because there's no cheating - but I remember reading in the Chicago Tribune back when Clinton, or maybe Gore, was running for President, that Demonrat "community organizers" were providing rides to the polls and passing out cigarettes on Milwaukee's Skid Row equivalents.

As long as a photo ID is required to get EBT or Medicaid, or to buy booze, a photo ID should be required to vote


Via Matt Bracken:


Sipsey Street Irregulars has some good advice for anyone concerned about our country and wanting to do something about it...

Praxis: Musings on Counterintelligence, Cockroaches and Rats.

Agents provocateur can be similar to snitches but generally are brighter, higher-functioning, more sociopathic. The best ones are charismatic, but deeply serious about the cause. They are constantly urging action, warning of dangers, casting doubts on other group members, etc. Good APs are hard to find, so Feds often reuse them under different names with other groups across the country. He may have left one group because it wasn't "hardcore" enough, or claims to have had a falling out with the leadership over principle.
With all of these the best defense is the individual Threepers' moral center that I talked about above. DPAs, SCI,s snitches and APs all count on human weaknesses -- without that moral center, if they scare someone enough they can guide them into making threatening statements, taking steps to do something illegal, etc. The principal method used is the "what if they do this, then we should do that" hypothetical discussion. NEVER -- EVER -- GET SUCKED INTO HYPOTHETICALS. If you know who you are and Who you serve then it is harder for the evil bad guys to sucker you into betraying those principles. They may have the latest threatening news of some intended raid, with just enough detail to make it plausible. Beyond a certain heightened awareness, do not react. If you have good relations with the local sheriff, report the threat to him. If someone tries to draw you in to a can't miss deal on an automatic weapon or explosives, do the same thing. Do NOT call the Feds. Remember, they're the ones who sent you the puke to begin with in order to entrap you.
Why do you think the FBI does not record interviews (even though it is high-tech and extremely efficient and precise), but uses two agents to do the interviews and write down afterward what they claim was said? The report is called an FD-302, and they can, after the fact, make it say whatever they want since it is the word of the two of them against the one of you.
I remember vividly the advice that the retired Marine counterintelligence officer once gave me. When dealing with people who approach you, always ask yourself two questions:
1. Why is this guy telling me this?
2. Why is this guy telling me this NOW?
Another important caution, again from the Bible: "Take not counsel of your fears." DPAs, SCI's and APs all count on fear to make you do things you otherwise would not. Just keep doing what you're doing and don't take your eye off the ball. If you feel the need to do SOMETHING then go train, meet and greet with potential political allies, have a cook-out BUT DON'T REACT. A reaction is what they are looking for. Deny it to them.
And don't forget the antiseptic qualities of bright light. If you are not in a position to do that yourself, pass the knowledge on to someone who can.
 Our jug-eared "leader" (and his predecessors!) have given the secret police (FBI, Homeland Security) directions to seek out "domestic terrorists" - defined, of course as anyone who believes that America is a country with a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, not a tyranny where you can be fined for not buying government-mandated "health insurance" or jailed for having freedom's tools without Big Brother's explicit permission...or anyone who believes that God is supreme over government, and wants to not serve or hire people who act in ways abhorrent to his religion..or anyone who believes in freedom, when you get right down to it.

The future is here

Guaranteed to give Hairy Reid, Nancy Pee-Lousy, Babs Boxer, Diane Feinswine, and all other PSH/hoplophobes the running shits:

Story and photos here.

It appears that perhaps some polishing and stamping of lettering was done after the printing - sintered parts are "grainy" looking right out of the printer, and there will be some roughness due to the finite thickness of the many layers of metal making up the parts.

The barrel is the last sticking point for 3-D printed weapons. Plastic versions only last a few rounds at the most, as plastic tends to melt or char under the heat of a round firing. let alone the friction of the bullet in the bore.

Laser sintering 3-D printing machines aren't cheap - but they also aren't federally regulated - yet.

I wonder if an enterprising entrepreneur could buy one of these and offer time on the machine to citizens who want their very own one-off printed handgun?

And now, some other news

Recently, I put flashing in place around the outside cellar door. No more basement flooding from water leaking past the edges of the door.

Also rebuilt the small storage shed - it's going to be the winter chicken coop. The original back by the shooting range will be too far away to manage once we get a foot of snow on the ground, let alone be possible to have electricity run out to it to keep the birds and their water from freezing.

The '63 Bug is poised to get new door seals and trim - and a replacement windshield (again, the first new one developed a crack at eye level on the driver's side) for reasonable prices, even with shipping. Might be able to have the car sealed up before the worst of the weather hits us.

The new job is going good.

#1 daughter is mostly moved in to her new house.

Everyone is healthy, despite the best efforts of our government.

Moved my orange workshop hypercat Leo II into the house - Lucky and Hal are still hiding, but the signs are that they will learn to co-exist peacefully. Now, I can work without an orange streak flashing across my keyboard periodically.

Oh, yeah - found the nagging problem with the prototype I've been working on for my last customer - a bad solder joint on a filter capacitor. All the weirdness in the unit is gone now - and my desire to work on that project is back.

Going to go out later today to finish clearing the swale I want to bridge out back of fallen trees. Might actually finish that job before winter.

Off to work!


OK.Time to vent.

JugearsCare is imploding. The major networks are reporting the fact that Jugears Osama LIES bald-faced whenever he tells us "facts" about this abomination, and knew long before the thing was passed that no one would be able to "keep their present plan".

The Demonrat leadership is starting to fracture. True believers like Nancy Pee-Lousy and Hairy Reid are still hanging on, but many others are fleeing the sinking ship of state.

Even some of the RINOs in CONgress are starting to figure out that their support of this creature from Hell might hurt their re-election chances.

The EPA is poised to finish Jugears' plan for destroying the American economy. Bush-era environmental rules just closed the last virgin lead smelter in the USA - now, all our heavy metal needs will come from China, where there is no effective "EPA".

The FDA just approved China as a processor for our chicken - so we are now going to be shipping American-raised birds by ship to China for "processing" in plants unregulated by those same bureaucrats who can't stop salmonella outbreaks here. When will the first lawsuit against KFC or McDonald's for melamine-infused chicken parts be filed?

Dianne Feinswine and Babs Boxer and their ilk are still trying to get more illegal gun control laws enacted.

The Federal Reserve has told us they intend to keep on printing funny money by the billions per month. Inflation is good, right?

When will the outcry for mass impeachments start?

More importantly, WHO will prosecute those impeachments when those needing to be impeached make up a majority of CONgress?

Locally, the infestation of roundabouts or "traffic circles" continues to spread. I found a new route to work around the west side of Rockford that unfortunately has one of these idiocies in the middle of a major 55 MPH highway - with a 15 MPH speed limit - and they mean it. 15 MPH is the upper limit for safely going around those curves.

Common Core continues to encroach on our schools, and the Demonrats in Wisconsin led by fleebagger and lame duck Tim Cullen can't stop squawking for more money for "public" schools, to be spent on things like seat belts in school buses. Evidently, bus accidents are not sufficiently bad now - they want to ensure that the kids have even less chance of getting out of a sinking, rolled or burning wreck than they do now - at a cost of only about $15,000.00 per bus.

The Town of Beloit is considering incorporating part of the area, and cutting us in the rural area loose. At least here the leaders are going to listen to the voice of the people. That might not make much difference, since in a "democracy" the 51% get to dictate to the 49% - and the majority of Town of Beloit residents live in the area being considered for incorporation - and would benefit from it.

Enough. I'm sick of ranting. When the rain clears, I'm going out back and doing some target practice.

Obama's Big Lie-There Won't Be Default Unless HE Ignores Constitution (We're Already Over Debt Limit)

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void. US Constitution, Amendment 14 Section 4
 The President is doing his best to frighten Americans and our creditors by claiming if the GOP does not capitulate to his demands and "cleanly" raise the debt ceiling we will default on our debt, damaging forever the full faith and credit of the United States. Simply put, that is a lie!

In fact we are already over the debt limit and the sky hasn't fallen. The present debt limit is $16.999 trillion. According to Treasury Direct, the Dept. of Treasury's website the US has already surpassed the debt limit by over $47 trillion.

If the October 17th deadline is passed without an increase in the debt ceiling it simply means the government can't borrow money and has to "live" on the tax revenue it takes in each month (about $250 billion). Interest on the federal debt runs about $20 billion each month leaving money left to run parts of the government.
And that's what Jugears cannot abide - living within "his" means. As a good would-be Communist elite, he feels he's entitled to live like a king while the proles adore him from afar.

Move America Forward is proud to bring you this update! We are headed to DC to attend the Million Vet March on this Sunday October 13th and we hope you can join us! We are on the road now flying and driving to Washington D.C. to bring Move America Forward staff to help organize this important event and make it a success! Please join us as we tell President Obama to STOP playing politics with our veterans!
Join us on October 13th, 2013 as we welcome veterans and
their families to join us in "unblocking" the WWII Memorial

Move America Forward's Scott Raab, Outreach Director and
Diana Nagy will be attending to perform and speak for MAF! Come Join us!

Our troops are not pawns for Obama to play politics with! These memorials were made to honor those who have served and sacrificed for our country, but Obama has closed these memorials up to try to make Americans "FEEL THE PAIN" of the Government shutdown, even at the cost of hurting our veterans of WWII, Vietnam or other wars!

It's a despicably childish political stunt, but unfortunately this President has elected to go down that road. Help MAF put a stop to this by supporting our efforts to make the Million Vet March a success and send a message to Obama that we're not going to let him continue this!

Make a donation today to help us continue to
spread the word and stay in the fight!


You can also help today's military by sending them a care package full of the treats and items the requested. But most importantly, each care package includes a personal message from you!!!

More shutdown

Priests facing arrest if they say Mass to Catholic servicemen - voluntarily:

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.
Emphasis mine.

On Wisconsin!

I am SO PROUD to be a Cheesehead today...

Wisconsin Nullifies Park Service Shutdown Order

The governor of Wisconsin, who has previously publicly stated his intention to resist Obamacare, had his state’s Department of Natural Resources reject federal requests to close portions of parks in the wake of the federal government’s shutdown.  The Wisconsin DNR also reopened a boat launch that the federal government had closed down on Tuesday.
As reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
“The park service ordered state officials to close (portions of national parks), but state authorities rebuffed the request because the lion’s share of the funding came from state, not federal coffers.”  The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had also closed down a boat launch, but “in a sign of defiance, the DNR removed the barricades at the landing, saying it had the legal authority to operate the launch under a 1961 agreement with the federal government.”
Let’s ignore for a moment the idiocy of closing park land because of Congress can’t decide exactly how much it should add to the ballooning national debt.  What Wisconsin has done is quite heroic.  In the face of childish federal “take my ball and go home” tactics, Wisconsin has told the feds to go away, that they can handle the expenses of maintaining these parks without federal “help.”
Governor Walker advised the federal government to “Look at what we did in Wisconsin. We had a $3.6 billion deficit; we now have more than a half-a-billion-dollar surplus.”  Walker added, “I think not just in Wisconsin but in states across the country there’s a lot of governors and lawmakers in both parties who wish the folks in Washington in both parties would act more like the states and less like our nation’s capital.”


Just plain mean and nasty

That's our Jugears!

I thought the federal government shut down! Who is paying for this server?

UPDATE: I got a letter telling me my ham radio license expires in January -so I went to the FCC's renewal website. Found this:

Federal Communications Commission

We regret the disruption, but during the Federal Government-wide shutdown, the FCC is limited to performing duties that are immediately necessary for the safety of life or the protection of property. FCC online systems will not be available until further notice.
If you need to contact the FCC to address an emergency situation, please call: (202) 418-1122 or email:
Telecommunications companies must continue to use the Network Outage Reporting System (NORS), which will remain available during the shutdown, to file reports of telecommunication service disruptions pursuant to Part 4 of the FCC's rules. NORS allows companies to file Notifications, Initial Reports and Final Reports. The information on service disruptions is essential to maintain and improve the reliability and security of the telecommunications infrastructure.
Vacancy announcements for positions that were open for receipt of applications have been closed and will re-open when the Government is operational.
During this time, the FCC is not accepting any deliveries of supplies, or services that have not been identified as necessary for the safety of life or the protection of property.
The Commission has issued a Public Notice concerning procedures for submissions that would be due to the FCC during the shutdown.

It costs nothing but power bills to let a website run on a server - but it costs real money for some programmer to write even a simple page like this and post it to that same server...


OK. The federal government is "shut down" for lack of money. 5/6 of Jugears' personal servants in the White House are on layoff.

There's no money to "run" the national parks or monuments. Especially the ones that require absolutely no human attention on a daily basis - like the veteran's memorials, that are in the open air and have no gates or admission hours, let alone attendants.

Somehow, though, Jugears has found the money to have a bunch of Park Service employees place barricades across sidewalks and in the grass to keep WWII vets away from their monument - the monument paid for with tax money, and their blood, sweat, and tears.

Somehow, the money was found to keep mounted park police on duty for the express purpose of preventing American citizens, especially veterans, from paying their respects to the fallen at them.

Several right-thinking members of Congress went out yesterday to remove the barricades Jugears personally ordered erected. Those barriers were reinstalled again today.

If the government was truly shut down, someone should have switched Jugears off for the duration.

Scam? (Not really)

State Association Annual Reports are due!
Dear State Association Leader,
State Associations continue to serve in a critical role as the state-level delivery system for NRA programs. The NRA depends on State Associations to promote these programs within their states and motivate NRA-affiliated clubs and grassroots volunteers to activate these programs in their local communities. The NRA wants to identify the ways we can assist State Associations to accomplish this task.
Please visit the link below to complete your state association's 2013 Annual Report no later than December 1, 2013 so that this information may be presented to the NRA Clubs & Associations Committee at the January 2014 Meeting.

Update - just got this:

We sent out an email on this list earlier today regarding state associations. If you are not a member of the leadership of your state association, please disregard the message; it went out to several email addresses erroneously.

The last straw

What will it be?

If I was living in the Virginia Beach area, this would be it for me:

Awful: School expels kids who played with airsoft gun on private property

The Virginia Beach seventh graders who were suspended for playing with an airsoft toy gun on their own private property have now been expelled for an entire school year.
The decision was made unanimously by a disciplinary committee consisting of three members of the Virginia Beach City Public Schools board, according to local news.
Khalid Caraballo and Aidan Clark are banned from Larkspur Middle School until at least January, when a new hearing will be convened to determine whether the boys can come back to school early.
Somehow, people have to show these petty dictators that they are employees of the people, and earn a living at the pleasure of the people. That school ends at the end of the school day and that anything at all that happens off school property is absolutely none of their business.

An example must be made. How about a blacklist of former school officials who have mindlessly adhered to "zero tolerance" rules, or worse, attempted to spread lies and disinformation to their students about our laws and history. Anyone on this blacklist would be shunned by all Americans, and ultimately end up in a cardboard box under a bridge or would emigrate to a country where such people are welcome.

I, for one, would be happy to donate some $$$ to a project to relocate these types to a more favorable place - North Korea comes to mind...

Maybe what we need is DEMONRAT CONTROL!

All the worst atrocities occur in places run by liberals and Demonrats. This is not a coincidence. This is either by design or due to their failed philosophy.

Gun Control? Obama's Chicago New U.S. Murder Capital

Hardly major news when we hear more about gun violence and murder in Chicago - in fact just one day ago a mass shooting in South Side park was reported, albeit fortunately with no fatalities. Chief McCarthy however soon got on the "assault" weapon band-wagon, working we assume on the basis that banning such rifles automatically prevents criminal aquisition and use.
In recently released statistics, the FBI reported there were over 500 murders in the Windy City in 2012, and yet as most know, the City is perhaps the largest single gun-free zone in the nation. Illegal guns of course are in plentiful supply but the good guys have no legal recourse to a means of self-defense.
There is a link to a bigger article -

Obama's Chicago Is Now Murder Capital Of U.S., FBI Says

One definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results. By that definition, most of CONgress and all of the loudest screamers for victim disarmament ought to be locked up in padded cells - not running loose.

Email exchange

Every so often, I get an email from a friend, discussing gun control and violence. I thought I would share this one:

On 9/17/2013 8:56 PM,  Bill wrote:
Chuck, Jim,  the information that I have so far gleaned from the media is that the D C Shooter was a mentally unstable man who was permitted to own and use guns.  He was legally armed when he killed those innocent victims.  The information seems to be structured to advance an ideology.  It hasn't been easy to get detailed information, so whatever I have has been sketchy at best. I would like to know your opinions on
1) what happed, and,
2) how can this sort of tragedy be minimized, and,
3) is new legislation necessary?
this is big news here.  Did this make the news in the UK, and if so, what is the thinking about it?
 Please "respond to all"
ps:  other comments welcome also
My response:
 Bill, as far as I can see, the guy came on to the base with a shotgun, attacked and disarmed two security people to get handguns, and proceeded to go shooting. Reports say many of the base personnel were armed - but evidently, not where it mattered.

There is no way to "minimize" this kind of crime unless we allow the government to institutionalize every person who ever showed any signs of anger or instability.

I believe that the proper legislative approach is to repeal all the failed "gun control" legislation, and allow the American people to exercise their rights as per the basic law of the land, the Constitution. Step one.

Next, we must dismantle the painstakingly built up framework of welfare and the dependency on government it fosters. This will be a long bloody fight, as so many Americans are hopelessly addicted to the system.

At the same time, we must somehow instill the values of a bygone era in the children of America, so that they grow up knowing how the system is supposed to work and that no one advances by stealing the bread from another in this country, but only by their own hard work and moral grounding.

I don't see either of these happening in our lifetimes.

One thing that has been ignored by the media and those mental giants in Washington is the fact that most, if not all,  of the perpetrators were either under treatment with psychotropic drugs, or had "gone off their meds" shortly before the incident. As many of these drugs carry dire warnings about suicide and other side effects, perhaps all such treatment should be carried out inside a secure facility until the patient is recovered, or for life if such recovery cannot be guaranteed. I fear this kind of power in the hands of our present "leaders" - remember the Soviet Union routinely used :mental hospitals" for "rehabilitation" of political dissidents.

The rise in violence in this country tracks the dismantling of our mental health infrastructure, the rise of inner-city welfare, and the destruction of family. I know that correlation does not prove causation, but both issues are worth looking into.
