FBI warns of threat from anti-government extremists

Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday.

These extremists, sometimes known as “sovereign citizens,” believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference.

Legal convictions of such extremists, mostly for white-collar crimes such as fraud, have increased from 10 in 2009 to 18 each in 2010 and 2011, FBI agents said.

Eighteen per year is a three per two month average.  Or, about one every three weeks.  Mostly white-collar crimes.  Wow, what a crisis.

Could you imagine the parties that city officials in St. Louis would be having if there were only three murders every two months in the city?

It was only a regional buy.  I might have been sitting on Johnny-on-the-Spot, but I don’t think this ran in St. Louis:

Question for Bloomberg and Menino, when they say they “support the 2nd Amendment.”  If language like the 2nd Amendment weren’t in the Constitution, would you support inserting it in?

Yours truly, NRA deals with the idiocy.

UPDATE 5 PM

The “dog ate my homework” excuses are getting lamer by the day.  Someone in Utah used a Salt Lake City TV website’s classifieds section to buy a gun from someone else in Utah.  WTF DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH NEW YORK CITY?  Michael Bloomberg is so loath to blame his city’s violence on people that could vote for him to be Mayor that he blames it on people in Virginia, Tennessee and Utah.  I heard that Abos in Tennant Creek, NT, Australia like to shoot boomerangs with air rifles — Don’t tell Bloomberg, or he’ll bitch about that.





Silver In Dem Dere Caucuses

6 02 2012

Mysteriously, it took more than a day after the caucuses closed for Clark County (Las Vegas et al.) to report all its results, thereby completing Nevada’s results.

There were 44,324 caucus votes cast in 2008 among Republicans, while there were only 32,894 cast this year.  That continues the trend of states that are well known Romney wins having lower turnouts than four years ago.  And Nevada is a swing state, too — Not a pleasing trend for Republicans heading toward November.

Ron Paul got 6,087 votes, 13.73%, 2nd Place, in 2008.  While he slightly improved his raw vote total (6,175), and somewhat improved his percentage take (18.77%), he didn’t finish in 2nd Place.  (I’m guessing all the Sands employees got the memo from the Top Floor to go caucus for Gingrich or else.)  So far, Nevada has represented his worst “improvement” over four years ago.  Of course, Nevada was one of his very best states early in the 2008 primary and caucus season, (his big numbers in later primaries and caucuses, after McCain wrapped it up, are the political equivalent of garbage time touchdowns in football), so it would have been hard to come up with a quadruple improvement like he did in South Carolina.  And, he won two Nevada counties compared to the one he won four years ago, the common county being Nye, the home of Art Bell and Front Sight.

But other than that, there’s no sugar coating finishing behind someone who spent almost no money in Nevada.

What could explain?  CofCC took the words out of my mouth.  All of his racial pandering to blacks and Hispanics to overcompensate for the newsletter “controversy” is turning into a buzzkill.

One more thing:  In spite of Las Vegas having a significant Jewish population, including a big Gingrich backer in the person of Sheldon Adelson, according to CNN’s exit polling, only 2% of caucus goers were Jewish.

Liberals are in a hurry to prohibit fatty and sugary snacks in school for the sake of “childhood obesity.”

I’m curious to see how they’ll react to this news:

Bill: No sweets with food stamps

Cookies, cakes, more would be banned from Florida program

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -  A Florida lawmaker is pushing a bill that would ban the use of food stamps to purchase snacks and sweets, such as cookies and cakes.

Republican State Sen. Ronda Storms, of Valrico, says her goal is to stop a small percentage of recipients who misuse food stamps.

Her bill would also require food stamp recipients to take state-run classes on healthy eating and how making your own baked goods is cheaper than store-made sweets.

The bill is moving through state committees in Tallahassee.

Critics say the government shouldn’t be telling people what to eat.

Democratic Rep. Gwyndolen Clarke-Reed, of Pompano Beach, also says the educational provision is demeaning to minorities and the poor by implying they aren’t smart enough to make their own choices.

Of course.  RACISM.

Ronda Storms should paint herself black and change her name to Michelle Obama.  Maybe then her bill will have a chance of passing.

Former Congressman Pete Hoekstra (R-MI), the second-place finisher in MI-GOV-R in 2010, is running for Senate this year to try to replace Debbie Stabenow.  He had a Super Bowl ad featuring a young Asian woman speaking broken English.

Five, six, seven, eight…

LANSING, Mich.—A coalition of black ministers in Detroit called Monday for U.S. Senate candidate Pete Hoekstra to apologize for his Super Bowl ad featuring a young Asian woman speaking broken English to describe the impact of the Democratic incumbent’s economic policies.

Hmmm.  What if this young woman opened a convenience store in Detroit?  And eventually…

What say you, black preachers?

Theft of Frozen Fetus Sparks Wild Gang Brawl in New Zealand

NEW PLYMOUTH, New Zealand – The theft of a frozen fetus from a young couple’s home sparked a wild gang brawl in New Zealand, police sources told Friday’s Taranaki Daily News.

The miscarried 12-week-old fetus was stolen last year from a freezer, where it was being kept ahead of a burial ceremony, at the property in New Plymouth on the country’s North Island.

The burglars also stole meat being stored there.

Police sources told the Daily News two women were arguing this week over who was to blame in the theft when gang members drinking nearby joined in, sparking a fight which involved up to 30 people.

A woman and three men, who were described as associates of New Zealand’s notorious Black Power gang, appeared in court Thursday on charges relating to the fight.

Well, almost black.  The Maori don’t look very black to me.

Two nooses and a hit list of black students found at University of Wisconsin at Parkside.
