Forced assimilation is an internationally recognized form of genocide

July 21, 2014


Raphael Lemkin in his book “Axis Rule in Occupied Europe” invented the term “genocide”; combining the Greek words “genos” (race, people) and “cide” (to kill).

Lemkin defined genocide as follows:

    “Genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation” . . . “It is intended to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups.”

The United Nations Genocide Conventions legally defines genocide as follows:

“Article II: Genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such:

    (a) Killing members of the group;
    (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
    (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
    (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
    (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

    Article III: The following acts shall be punishable:

    (a) Genocide;
    (b) Conspiracy to commit genocide;
    (c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide;
    (d) Attempt to commit genocide;
    (e) Complicity in genocide.

Forced assimilation is an internationally recognized form of genocide.

Should Americans be concerned?  Many are.  Should those who are concerned be labeled as racist?  Not blindly, no.  The truth is out there somewhere.  Finding it's getting to be a bitch, though.

5 Things To Remember Before You Quit And Say, ‘I’m Done With America’

July 21, 2014


Written by Doug Giles on July 20, 2014



Have you ever looked at all the schlock we’re currently mired in thanks to BHO’s “fundamental transformation” of America and thought, or actually said, “Screw it. I’m done. I officially don’t give a crap anymore.” I have. And I prize myself as being somewhat of a scrappy-faith-filled dude. I hate to admit it, but sometimes I get sick and tired of being sick and tired.

As a 51-year-old, I remember the good old days when we had at least quasi-legit leaders who gave a nominal flip about the continuation and betterment of this grand experiment called America. I recall how their affinity for our sacred principles afforded us a pretty good life, in relative peace, where we could pursue happiness while being left the heck alone. But now, with our current crapmeisters at the helm … eh, not so much as each side of the aisle seems pretty determined to destroy us, to the lining of their own pockets and power.

After I have these little pouting sessions of pathetic wussiness, I realize two things: 1). I’m being a hamster; and 2). Historically, that’s pretty much the crumble of the cookie, in that things usually turned repugnant before they turned around. Indeed, in the very formation of our blessed union we tend to forget King George’s oppressive hell spawned a defiant and free rebel nation; and that didn’t happen with ease or overnight.

For example, take the biblical narrative of the rise of King David and the renewal Israel had under his governance. I love bringing the Bible into this because the left so hates the Scripture. Please note that, before Israel’s heyday via David, they had hell to pay because of the damage done by lousy leaders.

Here’s a brief breakdown of what preceded that epic, Davidic transformation of morphing from being the Philistine’s redheaded step-child to being a free people under God:

1. Things got bad … real bad. Saul’s corrupt leadership, that was spawned by Israel’s decadent desires, effectively drove their country into the gutter and allowed their enemies an upper/oppressive hand. Sound familiar? And it got bad, folks. I’m talking real bad, as Israel became a cartoon of what she was originally intended to be. In this dilapidated state of Philistinian dominance, including Israel’s corruption and cowardice, arose a new leader named David. What appeared to be “the end” for Israel was actually only the beginning of a new day. Chew on that for a while.

2. New leaders emerged. For ancient Israel to extricate themselves from the slough of despond they were in, it demanded that new, principled leaders replace the sucky ones. Everything rises and falls on leadership. If things truly blow then it’s time to blow out the bosses. Oh, and by the way, transformational leadership will not be what you’re used to. David came out of left field. No one expected him to be chosen. No one thought he could fell the foul toad called Goliath, and those who did want to give him a shot tried to arm him with all the crap they had that didn’t work. The leaders we need will not be who we’d expect or pick. They will be unorthodox.

3. Motives for leading changed. David wasn’t trying to be a king. He didn’t have as a five-year plan that one day fair maidens would sing his praises and feed him grapes. He wasn’t trying to be a conservative star. He wasn’t trying to make a career out of this event. David’s motives were God and country. He wasn’t attempting to be the next Big Shiznah or the most popular slingshot artist in Israel. He just wanted to slay giants and save a nation.

4. Enemies were called out. David’s rise to power when Israel was nothing but a craven quail entailed the verbal scathing of the enemies of Israel. Check out how he vocally dealt with Goliath’s threats prior to his taking care of business. David wasn’t sweet or politically correct about what he thought about those who were Israel’s oppressive enemies.

5. Supernatural strength was fetched. David built himself up in God. If some dork thinks he’s going to change America because he’s fit and glib or she’s got freshly dyed blonde hair and new, fake boobs, they’re gonna get their butt handed to them by demonic forces that currently rule this roost. Youth and zeal are no match for age and treachery unless God be on your side. Yep, the new leaders who were the agents of godly change sought God for supernatural wisdom and strength; and they prayed in no uncertain way that God would waylay the enemies of truth, righteousness and justice.

So, little kiddies … we need to cheer up. You and I can’t curl up in the fetal position and wet our big diaper since things seem bad right now, because that’s exactly what the enemies of our nation would like us to do, namely … check out. Give up. Lose heart. Instead, we must realize the historical pattern of things usually gets real frickin’ bad before it gets better.



 

Campaign: 1950s nuke-survival skills needed now

July 20, 2014


When the Soviet Union was rattling its nuclear missiles and issuing not-so-veiled threats to the free world, students in American schools trained to hide under their desks at the sound of a siren.

Families built bomb shelters in their back yards, some of which still exist.

And who can forget when Soviet Premier Nikita Khruschev pounded a shoe on the U.N. podium and declared, “We will bury you!”

Actually, his son, Sergei, who later moved to the United States, recalled that his father’s words probably were better translated, “We will outlast you.”



But whatever the precise meaning, Americans feared a nuclear attack and were prepared to do their best to survive.

Now, Physicians for Civil Defense, which works to save lives of first responders and the public in the event of disasters, especially terror attacks, has started a campaign to prepare citizens to survive a nuclear attack.

The group has created the Good News Nuke website, where Shane Connor has written an article, “The Good News About Nuclear Destruction.”

He explains that nuclear explosions, dirty bombs, terror attacks and more are survivable if targets “know what to do beforehand and have made even the most modest of preparations.”

Today’s culture, Connor wrote, has “been jaded” by the pervasive “myths of nuclear un-survivability.”

“Most people think that if nukes go off then everybody is going to die, or it’ll be so bad they’ll wish they had. That’s why you hear such absurd comments as, ‘If it happens, I hope I’m at ground zero and go quickly.’”

Connor said the “defeatist attitude was born as the disarmament movement ridiculed any competing alternatives to their ban-the-bomb agenda, like Civil Defense.”

“The activists wanted all to think there was no surviving any nukes, disarmament was your only hope,” he said. “The sound Civil Defense strategies of the 50s, 60s and 70s have been derided as being largely ineffective, or at worst a cruel joke.”

Connor said that since the end of the Cold War in the 1980s, most Americans have seen neither a need to prepare nor believed preparation would do any good.

“Today, with growing prospects of nuclear terrorism, and nuclear saber rattling from rogue nations, we see emerging among the public either paralyzing fear or irrational denial,” he said. “People can’t even begin to envision effective preparations for ever surviving a nuclear attack. They think it totally futile, bordering on lunacy, to even try.”

The reality?

“The biggest surprise for most Americans, from the first flash of a nuke being unleashed, is that they will still be here, though ill-equipped to survive for long, if they don’t know what to do beforehand from that very first second of the initial flash onward.”

In an interview with WND, Dr. Jane M. Orient said the threat today is higher, if anything.



The organization also posted a billboard in Salt Lake City just a few weeks ago to begin advertising its GoodNewsNuke.com website.

“The advice has been proven to work, at Nagasaki and in the 2013 meteor air burst in Chelyabinsk, Russia,” the organization reported.

Connor recalled that the meteor air burst stunned thousands. About 1,500 were injured, mostly from the shock wave hitting glass, which then hit the people who “were anxiously scanning the winter sky … trying to see what/where the bright flash was.”



A fourth-grade teacher in Chelyabinsk, Yulia Karbysheva, was hailed as a hero after saving 44 children from imploding window glass.

“Despite not knowing the origin of the intense flash of light, Karbysheva thought it prudent to take precautionary measures by ordering her students to stay away from the room’s windows and to perform a duck and cover maneuver,” Connor said.

“Karbysheva, who remained standing, was seriously lacerated when the blast arrived and window glass severed a tendon in one of her arms; however, none of her students, whom she ordered to hide under their desks, suffered cuts.”

Connor said even at Nagasaki, police officers survived because they had looked at the impact in Hiroshima, and decided that ducking would be a prudent response to a white flash.

The “unsurvivable” ground zero for nuclear explosions these days would  be about 2.2 miles. Death and injuries could occur for another nine miles.

With “duck and cover” employed by all, there could be more than 15 times fewer casualties from a blast wave.

But the U.S. has not only neglected teaching such defensive maneuvers, it actively teaches fatalism.




 

U.S. Army Training To Fight Americans (VIDEO)

July 19, 2014


Pretty cool, but...

I thought the Posse Comitatus Act prohibited using the military on US soil.
Check it out:

A promotional video touting FEMA’s emergency response capabilities shows U.S. National Guard troops training to detain unruly African-American citizens in prison camps before handing them over to police.

The video appears on the official YouTube channel for Guardian Centers, an 830 acre “disaster preparedness and tactical training validation center” located in Georgia which is routinely used by FEMA and other government agencies to practice emergency response procedures.

After the 2 minute mark in the clip, the scene cuts to a black woman who is struggling to escape from the clutches of a uniformed soldier. The area is surrounded by concertina wire and guarded by other troops.

The clip then shows the woman, along with another African-American, being handed over to local police before being driven away.

Described by CNN as the “doomsday Disneyland,” Guardian Centers is a mock city complete with a subway station that “allow(s) a variety of responders to do a variety of drills in one location.”




 

Picture of the Day: ‘No illeagles’ graffiti treated as hate crime

July 19, 2014


It’s easy to imagine Emily Litella doing a segment on this, beginning with the question “What’s this I hear about ill eagles?” But there’s little to laugh about in the kneejerk liberal response to a poorly spelled message anonymously spray-painted on a wall in Westminster, Md. A screen grab of the sentiment, which reads in all caps “NO ILLEAGLES HERE, NO UNDOCUMENTED DEMOCRATS,” appears below.



CBS Baltimore notes that the graffiti is being treated as a hate crime, which is puzzling insofar as the message merely raises an objection to people entering the country illegally. Is it now a crime to express opposition to lawbreakers? More quizzical still was the reaction of Maryland State Police Sgt. Marc Black, who is quoted as saying:

    The tone of the crime is what we’re really concerned with. Again, you are targeting a specific group just based on their nationality.



But there is no mention of any nationality, and the tens of thousands of migrants pouring over the southern border hail from several countries. Was the sergeant maybe lumping them all together in his mind under the label “Mexican”? If so, who’s the real bigot?

U.S. Senator Ben Cardin, a Democrat, also reacted, releasing a statement that said in part:

    There needs to be a respectful debate about immigration but we cannot allow such a conversation to devolve to the lowest common denominator of xenophobia and ignorance.

But that view ignores the clear ideological divide that has arisen in the Free State over the decision by the Department of Health and Human Services to clandestinely ship illegal immigrant children to an Army Reserve center in Westminster, which is 35 miles from Baltimore. That decision, which drew anger from plenty of Marylanders after Republican Rep. Andy Harris exposed the plan, has since been reversed. In the interests of balanced coverage, CBS might have chosen to include these inconvenient truths.


The following clip is far less annoying than the actual CBS clip.  It is also far less annoying than the actual song 'Royals' which the clip parodies:



 

Baker appeals government re-education order

July 19, 2014


DENVER – A Lakewood, Colorado, bakery owner has appealed to the Colorado Court of Appeals an order from the state’s Civil Rights Commission that he take his employees through a mandatory re-education process because of his religious objections to promoting same-sex marriage, which the state constitution does not recognize.

The Alliance Defending Freedom, who represents Masterpiece Cakeshop artist Jack Phillips, says the order by state bureaucrats requires Phillips to “re-educate” his employees so that they “endorse all views.” Phillips also must file quarterly reports for two years proving that the “re-education” has been implemented.

“Americans should not be forced by the government – or by another citizen – to endorse or promote ideas with which they disagree,” said lead counsel Nicolle Martin, one of more than 2,400 attorneys allied with Alliance Defending Freedom.



“This is not about the people who asked for a cake; it’s about the message the cake communicates. Just as Jack doesn’t create baked works of art for other events with which he disagrees, he doesn’t create cake art for same-sex ceremonies regardless of who walks in the door to place the order.”

Two homosexuals filed a complaint with the state agency after Phillips declined to produce a cake celebrating same-sex marriage. According to the records in the case, he explained he doesn’t produce such cakes because of his religious beliefs, just as he does not produce cakes celebrating Halloween, which he considers pagan.

“In America, we don’t force artists to create expression that is contrary to their convictions,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Jeremy Tedesco. “A paint artist who identifies as homosexual shouldn’t be intimidated into creating a painting that celebrates one-man, one-woman marriage. A pro-life photographer shouldn’t be forced to work a pro-abortion rally. And Christian cake artists shouldn’t be punished for declining to participate in a same-sex ceremony or promote its message.”

It was back in 2012 when Charlie Craig and David Mullins asked Phillips to make a wedding cake to celebrate their same-sex ceremony.

“In an exchange lasting about 30 seconds, Phillips politely declined, explaining that he would gladly make them any other type of baked item they wanted but that he could not make a cake promoting a same-sex ceremony because of his faith,” ADF said.



“Jack, and other cake artists like him – such as those seen on TV shows like ‘Ace of Cakes’ and ‘Cake Boss’ – prepare unique creations that are inherently expressive,” Tedesco said. “Jack invests many hours in the wedding cake creative process, which includes meeting the clients, designing and sketching the cake, and then baking, sculpting, and decorating it. The ACLU [which is representing the homosexual duo] calls Jack a mere ‘retail service provider,’ but, in fact, he is an artist who uses his talents and abilities to create expression that the First Amendment fully protects.”

The appeal contends the determination from a state administrative law judge was incorrect and that the commission lined up in concurrence with his mistakes.

It notes that the bakery owner did not discriminate because of “sexual orientation,” and he “acted in accordance with the provisions” of state law and public policy in Colorado.

The appeal argues Phillips and the other appellants are “protected by the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution and by Article II, Section 10 of the Colorado Constitution from being forced to use their artistic talents to design and create expression they disagree with, here in the form of a wedding cake celebrating a same-sex union.”

ADF, in an earlier legal filing, warned that Colorado’s “government seeks “to impose a new belief system upon Jack [Phillips], one that is fundamentally at odds with his conscience and his liberty.”



 

20 Signs The Drought In The Western United States Is Starting To Become Apocalyptic

July 18, 2014




When scientists start using phrases such as "the worst drought" and "as bad as you can imagine" to describe what is going on in the western half of the country, you know that things are bad. Thanks to an epic drought that never seems to end, we are witnessing the beginning of a water crisis that most people never even dreamed was possible in this day and age.

The state of California is getting ready to ban people from watering their lawns and washing their cars, but if this drought persists we will eventually see far more extreme water conservation measures than that. And the fact that nearly half of all of the produce in America comes out of the state of California means that ultimately this drought is going to deeply affect all of us.

Food prices have already been rising at an alarming rate, and the longer this drought goes on the higher they will go. Let us hope and pray that this drought is permanently broken at some point, because otherwise we could very well be entering an era of extreme water rationing, gigantic dust storms and crippling food prices. The following are 20 signs that the epic drought in the western half of the United States is starting to become apocalyptic...

#1 According to the Los Angeles Times, downtown Los Angeles is now the driest that it has been since records began being kept all the way back in 1877.

#2 The California State Water Resources Control Board says that nearly 50 communities are already on the verge of running out of water.

#3 In a desperate attempt to conserve water, the state of California is considering banning watering lawns and washing cars. Once implemented, violators will be slapped with a $500 fine for each offense.

#4 It has been reported that a new social media phenomenon known as "drought shaming" has begun in California. People are taking videos and photos of their neighbors wasting water and posting them to Facebook and Twitter.

#5 Climate scientist Tim Barnett says that the water situation in Las Vegas "is as bad as you can imagine", and he believes that unless the city "can find a way to get more water from somewhere" it will soon be "out of business".

#6 The water level in Lake Mead has now fallen to the lowest level since 1937, and it continues to drop at a frightening pace. You can see some incredible photos of what has happened to Lake Mead right here.

#7 Rob Mrowka of the Center for Biological Diversity believes that the city of Las Vegas is going to be forced to downsize because of the lack of water...

The drought is like a slow spreading cancer across the desert. It's not like a tornado or a tsunami, bang. The effects are playing out over decades. And as the water situation becomes more dire we are going to start having to talk about the removal of people (from Las Vegas).

#8 In some areas of southern Nevada, officials are actually paying people to remove their lawns in a desperate attempt to conserve water.

#9 According to Accuweather, "more than a decade of drought" along the Colorado River has set up an "impending Southwest water shortage" which could ultimately affect tens of millions of people.

#10 Most people don't realize this, but the once mighty Colorado River has become so depleted that it no longer runs all the way to the ocean.

#11 Lake Powell is less than half full at this point.

#12 It is being projected that the current drought in California will end up costing the state more than 2 billion dollars this year alone.

#13 Farmers in California are allowing nearly half a million acres to lie fallow this year due to the extreme lack of water.

#14 The lack of produce coming from the state of California will ultimately affect food prices in the entire nation. Just consider the following statistics from a recent Business Insider article...

California is one of the U.S.'s biggest food producers — responsible for almost half the country's produce and nuts and 25% of our milk and cream. Eighty percent of the world's almonds come from the state, and they take an extraordinary amount of water to produce — 1.1 gallons per almond.

#15 As underground aquifers are being relentlessly drained in California, some areas of the San Joaquin Valley are sinking by 11 inches a year.

#16 It is being projected that the Kansas wheat harvest will be the worst that we have seen since 1989.

#17 The extended drought has created ideal conditions for massive dust storms to form. You can see video of one female reporter bravely reporting from the middle of a massive dust storm in Phoenix right here.

#18 Things are so dry in California right now that people are actually starting to steal water. For example, one Mendocino County couple recently had 3,000 gallons of water stolen from them. It was the second time this year that they had been hit.

#19 At the moment, close to 80 percent of the state of California is experiencing either "extreme" or "exceptional" drought.

#20 National Weather Service meteorologist Eric Boldt says that this is "the worst drought we probably have seen in our lifetime".



Most people just assume that this drought will be temporary, but experts tell us that there have been "megadroughts" throughout history in the western half of the United States that have lasted for more than 100 years.

If we have entered one of those eras, it is going to fundamentally change life in America.

And the frightening thing is that much of the rest of the world is dealing with water scarcity issues right now as well. In fact, North America is actually in better shape than much of Africa and Asia.

Without plenty of fresh water, modern civilization is not possible.

And right now, the western United States and much of the rest of the world is starting to come to grips with the fact that we could be facing some very serious water shortages in the years ahead.



 

Former Border Patrol Deputy Chief: "We’re back to a pre-9/11 situation"

July 18, 2014


Former national deputy chief of the U.S. Border Patrol Ronald Colburn tells National Review Online that the Obama administration has undone all of the progress made at America’s southern border since 9/11.



“We’re back to a pre-9/11 situation basically, and this administration did that in the past five years,” he says. “All of the good that was done after 9/11 up to now has been reversed singlehandedly.”

Colburn, who spent more than 30 years working for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, says the resulting national-security risk has to do with the “clutter” of people at the border. He says all of the gains made since 9/11 came as a result of reducing the number of people crossing the border. The Border Patrol’s task is to sort through the haystack of people as they come across, he says. “What this situation on the border is doing is growing the haystack, is adding clutter, so that those dangerous needles get through because we’re tied up capturing, instead, juvenile children from Guatemala and El Salvador,” he says. “When you see the cartels — the Zetas and MS-13 and the Gulf Cartel — laughing about this on the Internet, you know what’s behind it.”

Colburn says the “gangsters down south” enjoy social media, taking selfies, and talking about one another online. Border Patrol officials monitor the cartels’ online communications along with officials from the Department of Defense and intelligence community, he says.



 

'Beyond B.S.': Attorney erupts over D.C. 'cover-up'

July 18, 2014


WASHINGTON – The attorney for the family of the late Miriam Carey usually has an exceptionally calm demeanor.

And Eric Sanders has been extraordinarily patient while waiting more than nine long months for investigators to release the official police report into the shooting death of the unarmed suburban mother, after she apparently made a wrong turn into a White House entrance on Oct. 3, 2013.

But, it would be a vast understatement to say the attorney is not buying the official explanation of how, after a seven-minute wild chase with her infant daughter strapped into the back seat, Carey ended up shot to death at the hands of U.S. Capitol Police and uniformed Secret Service agents, in the shadow of the Capitol.

In fact, Sanders finally lost his temper after the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced there will be no criminal charges in the case of the 34-year-old mother from Stamford, Connecticut, who was shot five times, once in the head, three times in the back and once in the arm. Somehow, the bullets all missed her 14-month-old child.



The attorney let loose a torrent of scathing observations and delivered a damning indictment of the investigation, delivered with the keen eye for detail that comes from being a former New York City Police officer himself.

That eye first zeroed in on the one officer who was not in uniform.

That officer was seen in pictures released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, when it announced on July 10, that “the evidence was insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the officers who were involved in the shooting used excessive force or possessed the requisite criminal intent at the time of the events.”



Sanders began quietly, telling WND in a soft but firm tone, “It’s about male bravado,” then adding, “I’ll tell you why I know that.”

He points out one of the pictures shows that plain-clothes officer confronting Carey in her car, and that he has a cooler in one hand and a metal barrier in the other (below).



Sanders notes the police report even got that simple detail wrong, referring to it as a “bike rack.”

According to the report, Carey struck the “rack” with her car after the officer placed it in front of her, and then it struck him.

“He’s in plain clothes. How is she supposed to know that he’s an officer?” the attorney wondered.

Additionally, what the still pictures taken at the White House gate don’t show is whether Carey tried to avoid, or go around, that officer.

Sanders thinks it is significant investigators released only still photos, and not the surveillance video of the incident, because they “conveniently” show only the pictures the police want seen.

“If that’s the best they can do to show what this case is all about, then the public should really be afraid of these people. This is a complete cover-up.”

Sanders then picked up his analysis of the photos by noting that the plain-clothes officer appears again, at the Garfield traffic circle, where shots were first fired at Carey.



“What the hell’s he doing there?!” he asked rhetorically, then answered his own question.

A livid Sanders, uncharacteristically using profanity, said he believes the officer chased down Carey because the one overriding thought in his mind was: “This b—- f—— hit me with her car.”

“I told you this was all about bravado from the beginning, didn’t I?” said the attorney, insisting that the officer chased Carey only because he was upset at what happened at the gate, and that she had done absolutely nothing illegal.

Sanders said, as former police officer, the more he’s looked at it, the more he is convinced that his first hunch was correct, that the investigation was all about officers protecting their own.

“They covered up misconduct and criminal activity in this case, because what those guys did was willful.”

Sanders said he will demand the Department of Justice review the investigation by the U.S. Attorney.

“The whole investigation is B.S. The investigation is beyond B.S. It was designed to get certain results. They should be ashamed of themselves. I’m going to increase the damages we’re asking for in our civil lawsuit because what they did is a cover-up. They engaged in serious misconduct.”

Something else that greatly bothers Sanders is that the official police report was never actually released.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia reviewed the investigation done by the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan police, but did not release the official report, only a summary of their findings and an announcement that no criminal charges would be filed.

“That is unprecedented. They released the report on the Navy Yard shooting (on Sept. 16, 2013.) Why don’t they release this? If they’re so confident about what they did, release it. Why not?”

Sanders will try to get that report released in the $75 million civil lawsuit the Carey family is planning to file against the Capitol Police and uniformed Secret Service, but he expects them to fight it.

The former officer expressed amazement authorities would simply announce there is insufficient evidence to press charges without showing what evidence is there.

As an example of unexplored questions, he returned to the plain-clothes officer who confronted Carey by leaning on her car.

Sanders said it is “Police 101″ for plain-clothes officers to avoid contact because citizens may have no idea it is an officer confronting them, and that can easily cause a person to panic.

He believes that is exactly what happened to Carey, that she panicked when an unknown man, not in uniform, threw a rack in front of her car.

And that is why, he believes, she sped away.

“People get spooked. They keep saying she was mentally disturbed. There’s not one shred of evidence to support that.”

The problem is, Sanders insisted, the mainstream media take everything the authorities say at face value.

“For example, it says in the press release that she confronted the officers. How did she confront the officers? The officers confronted her.”

As for the two uniformed officers in another photo taken at the White House gate?



“She somehow got past them. You know how she got past them? Because they were over there, smoking and joking and lackadaisical, just like I said from the beginning. That’s why they don’t want to show the video!”

Sanders said the reason authorities did not release photos of officers shooting at Carey at Garfield circle is because their excuse is so weak.

“Officers were (supposedly) concerned because she was driving towards people on the sidewalk. They didn’t show pictures of anyone on the sidewalk. They didn’t show she was about to run anybody over, either.”

Sanders explained what he saw as the absurdity of that reasoning.

“Think about that one for a minute. Let’s assume there was someone in front of her car. And you morons are shooting at her from the back? What, are you stupid? So, you miss her and then you shoot (innocent bystanders?)”

Sanders said the bottom line is that what authorities did reveal leaves more questions than answers. And he’s apparently not the only one who feels that way.

Three days after authorities announced there would be no criminal charges filed, a Washington Post editorial titled, “Questions remain in the shooting death of Miriam Carey” stated the decision left a critical question unanswered: “Was there a better, nonlethal means of dealing with the situation?”

In other words, did officers make the wrong call?

Sanders certainly thinks so, and he is anguished that a jury will not get to make that same decision



 

Lawsuit: DEA Gave Recovering Addict Crack-Cocaine For Undercover Work

July 17, 2014


A lawsuit filed in New Mexico this week accuses the Drug Enforcement Agency of paying a drug addict crack cocaine for undercover work.

According to the lawsuit filed in Albuquerque’s U.S. District Court Monday, five DEA agents confronted 38-year-old Aaron Romero, a recovering crack addict, in 2011 and offered him the drug in exchange for help with “Operation Smack City.” Succumbing to his addiction, Romero would be used to carry out drug deals in order to bring down an alleged Las Vegas drug ring.

Romero’s lawyer, Erlinda Ocampo Johnson, says the agents caused her client immense physical and emotional damage by taking advantage of his addiction.

“The United States government and the defendants affirmatively and intentionally established a pattern of distribution of crack cocaine to (Romero) in order to utilize his addiction to crack cocaine to further the investigation and to ‘stack drug related charges’ against him,” the lawsuit states.



Johnson also says the agents never obtained approval from prosecutors to work with Romero in the first place, making the recruitment a violation of DEA policy.

Despite assisting the agents, Romero was later charged with distribution of drugs in federal court, although the charges were eventually dropped several months later.

“He was targeted because he was a known drug addict,” Johnson told the Associated Press. “He is trying to get his life back together but he’s still afraid that the government will try to restart his addiction again.”

Romero, who is now reportedly clean from drugs, is seeking $8.5 million for “the loss of love, familial relationships, and companionship” due to his DEA-fueled addiction.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Albuquerque declined to comment on the case.

While the DEA publicly decries the alleged dangers of marijuana legalization, behind the scenes, the agency is deeply involved with helping the drug trade flourish.

Recently uncovered court documents revealed that the agency helped Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel bring billions of dollars worth of drugs into the country between 2000 and 2012. The documents also showed that DEA agents met with high level Sinaloa members more than 50 times during that period.

Ironically, while the DEA was threatening legal action against banks that attempted to store cash for legal marijuana businesses in Washington and Colorado, those same banks were given a free pass by the DEA when laundering cash for Sinaloa.

The DEA remained silent last year as Attorney General Eric Holder refused to prosecute HSBC, a bank caught laundering billions in drug money for Mexican cartels and groups tied to terrorism.

Similarly in 2011, Wachovia avoided criminal charges after laundering more than $378.6 billion in drug money for Mexican cartels as well.

Meanwhile, the DEA focuses its attention on prescription drug abuse in the NFL.
