Nope, we are not living under the jackboot of the KGB with the required accompanying abuse of power….not at all. Move along ya stupid moos, nothing to see here…
Slaton police came to this woman’s house, who wishes to remain anonymous, to arrest her son. But by asking one simple question, she found herself behind bars instead.
“I told him, ‘I will release my son to you upon viewing those orders.’ Those were exactly my words,” The complainant said. “He said, ‘This is how you want to play?’ He took two steps back, turned around to the officer and said, ‘Take her.’ They turned me around, handcuffed me, and took me in.”
The complainant said she was aware police would be coming to apprehend her 11-year-old son based on a criminal complaint, and that she just wanted to see the warrant. As it turns out, that warrant didn’t exist. She spent the night in jail while her son was left at home.
“He told me it was their duty to come pick up my son,” She said. “Yet, I had someone stay the night at my house. They never came back that evening, they never came to pick up my son, or do what they told me they were there to do in the beginning.”
Just as a preface to the petition that this post is about, three days ago, I wrote this piece about the beginning of the petition movement on WhiteHouse.gov for states to peacefully secede from the union: (more…)
(Look for the update about Texas and Missouri at the bottom of the post)
I’ll have you know that it took quite some time to stop laughing (and then stop shaking my head) after I read this petition on WhiteHouse.gov (linked from Drudge). Here are the screenshots of the petition because seeing is believing. (Dumbing down and globalist re-education of Americans FOR THE WIN!) (more…)
UPDATE #2: Karl Denninger of MarketTicker has the right idea…
The simple fact of the matter is that these legislators are wimps.
There’s only one legal way to fight this crap – with your wallet, by snapping it closed.
I have long advocated that you simply not choose to fly. That’s one of the best ways to address what is ultimately a matter of the Airlines demanding (and getting) liability shields which they should not have, as they both have the most to lose from exploding airplanes (they’re both expensive and filled with passengers that have families who will sue) and the right to protect that investment.
The TSA is not about “safety”; we have TSA agents standing accused of sexual molestation (outside of their work, where it’s considered “legal” at present), theft and myriad other offenses. We also have the TSA now apparently providing “security theater” visions for such earth-shattering events as high school proms, where some kid might (horror of horrors!) smuggle in some alcohol.
There’s nothing like the jackboot of government on your neck, starting with a TSA agent reaching down your baby’s diaper to check for “things”, to set forth the principle that the government owns you – and thus has the right to do anything, including commit a sexual assault.
This abuse only stops when you, the American Citizen, demand it stop. And the best and loudest lawful way to do that is to withdraw your business from firms thatfund the jackals at the gate who were responsible for yesterday’s idiocy – in this case the Texas Legislature.
UPDATE from InfoWars.com: Republican Lt. Governor Killed TSA Bill For Obama
The man who was instrumental in working with the federal government to sabotage a bill that would have made TSA grope downs a felony in the state of Texas was Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, a former CIA agent and establishment insider considered to be the wealthiest man in Texas politics.
….Of The TSA, For The TSA, and By The TSA…
If HR [sic] 1937 were enacted, the federal government would likely seek an emergency stay of the statute. Unless or until such a stay were granted, TSA would likely be required to cancel any flight or series of flights for which it could not ensure the safety of passengers and crew.
Un-F***in’-Believable! Texas decides to pick a fight with the federal government and
the Gestapo TSA over sexual molestation of law-abiding Americans and then runs from it when the going gets tough! (InfoWars.com: Financial Terrorism: TSA Holds Texas Flights Hostage)
Since WHEN do Texans give a flying squirrel’s backend what the feds have to say about anything? WTF were Texas lawmakers thinking whilst begging ‘by your leave’ from the TSA and DOJ, and SINCE WHEN does the DOJ THREATEN an entire state (letter here.) (more…)
On Tuesday, March 9th, a Mexican helicopter was flying over residential areas around Falcon Lake on the Texas side of the Rio Grande.
The sighting came amid ongoing fighting between the Gulf Cartel and its former enforcers, Los Zetas. The mounting death toll and crisis of fear in cities across from the Texas border have drawn global attention, as has a news blackout in affected cities due to the kidnappings of eight Mexican journalists, at least one of whom was killed.
As violence continued Thursday with a highway shootout in Tamaulipas, a Senate subcommittee in Washington heard testimony that drug cartels are trying to infiltrate U.S. agencies along the border, with corruption cases among Homeland Security personnel on the rise.
One would think that when a military helicopter from a neighboring nation is flying over your soil, you might just DO SOMETHING! Did Washington do anything other than hear testimony on a related matter? Did the coward-in-chief do anything? Is he doing anything now that Americans are DEAD – besides state that he is “outraged” and pulling dependents of American personnel? Do you think that some of our former presidents would have sat back after helicopters from another nation were flying over our soil, or American citizens working in our consulates were executed trying to get across the border?
The consequences of having the weakest pResident known to mankind is that the mexican drug cartels appear to have declared open season on Americans. Thanks Barack; though, unfortunately, we knew this was coming. This is one reason that gun sales have increased so dramatically. I am sensing yet another impeachable offense coming soon.
Story #1 from Reuters:
Mexico gunmen kill American consulate staff
CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (Reuters) – Gunmen in the drug war-plagued Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez killed two Americans and a Mexican linked to the local U.S. consulate, an attack U.S. President Barack Obama said “outraged” him.
An American woman working at the consulate in Ciudad Juarez, just over the border from El Paso, Texas, and her U.S. husband were fatally shot by suspected drug gang hitmen in broad daylight on Saturday as they left a consulate social event, U.S. and Mexican officials told Reuters.
A Mexican man married to another consulate employee was killed around the same time in another part of the city after he and his wife left the same event, a U.S. official said.
The U.S. official, who asked not to be identified, said it was not clear if the victims had been specifically targeted, and the motive for the attacks was unknown.
Bloodshed has exploded in recent months in Ciudad Juarez as the head of the Juarez cartel, Vicente Carrillo Fuentes, fights off a bloody offensive by Mexico’s No. 1 fugitive drug lord, Joaquin “Shorty” Guzman, at the worst hotspot of Mexico’s three-year-old drug war.
“The president is deeply saddened and outraged by the news,” said White House National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer. He said Obama “shares in the outrage of the Mexican people at the murders of thousands in Ciudad Juarez and elsewhere in Mexico.”
The U.S. State Department updated its warning on travel to Mexico to say it had authorized the departure of dependents of U.S. government personnel from consulates in Ciudad Juarez and five other northern border cities.
Nearly 19,000 people have been killed since President Felipe Calderon came to power in Mexico in late 2006 and launched a military assault on the country’s powerful drug cartels, sparking a surge in violence that has alarmed Washington, foreign investors and tourists.
Most victims are rival traffickers and police, and to a lesser extent soldiers, local officials and bystanders. It is rare for drug gang hitmen to target foreigners.
“The Mexican authorities are determined to clarify what happened and bring those responsible to justice,” the Mexican Foreign Ministry said of Saturday’s attacks.
CHILDREN SURVIVE SHOOTING
The attack on the U.S. couple began with a car chase and ended in front of the main border crossing into El Paso, an area heavily patrolled by soldiers, local newspaper El Diario reported. The couple’s baby girl survived the attack.
The Mexican spouse was murdered in an upscale neighborhood of the city when gunmen boxed in his car with other vehicles and shot him, according to a local newspaper photographer who soon arrived at the scene. His wife, who was following in a second car, was unhurt, but their two children were wounded.
Story #2 from the LA Times:
Five police officers are slain and the bullet-riddled bodies of eight men are found in Acapulco just as foreign tourists are arriving for spring break.
Reporting from Mexico City
At least 13 people were killed Saturday, some of them beheaded, around the popular beach resort of Acapulco, just as foreign visitors have begun arriving for spring break.
Elsewhere in the Guerrero state where Acapulco is located, 11 other people, including soldiers and suspected traffickers, were killed, authorities said.
The dead in Acapulco included five police officers, authorities said, who were ambushed while on patrol on the city’s outskirts about 2 a.m.
Over the next four hours, the bullet-riddled bodies of eight men were discovered in three locations, police said. Four had been beheaded, in the style typical of drug traffickers who have been at war with one another and with government forces for three years.
Obama (the coward who bows to world leaders and mayors AND who chokes in situations with Somali pirates) has ordered the dependents of American personnel out of six American consulates in Mexico. I am not holding my breath for any real action from that man we knew was going to BLINK. Thank God Texas Is Texas!
From Dallas Morning News:
Obama condemns U.S. consulate killings in Mexico
MEXICO CITY — Three people associated with the U.S. Consulate office in Ciudad Juárez were killed Saturday in the troubled city, prompting swift condemnation from President Barack Obama.
“The president is deeply saddened and outraged by the news of the brutal murders of three people associated with the United States Consulate General in Ciudad Juárez , Mexico,” White House National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer said in a prepared statement, “including a U.S. citizen employee, her U.S. citizen husband, and the husband of a Mexican citizen employee.”
On Sunday, the U.S. State Department ordered the evacuation of dependents of U.S. personnel in six U.S. consulates in Mexico. The consulate offices are in Tijuana, Baja California, Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Nuevo Laredo and Matamoros, Tamaulipas and Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. The order, according to the statement, will be lifted April 12.
The U.S. Embassy in Mexico City also asked its employees to postpone any travel to the northern cities of Durango, Coahuila and Chihuahua.
Hammer said Obama “shares in the outrage of the Mexican people at the murders of thousands in Ciudad Juárez and elsewhere in Mexico.”
Mexican authorities in Ciudad Juárez said the two incidents took place separately and within minutes of each other Saturday afternoon.
More than 18,000 people have been killed since President Felipe Calderon took power and vowed to restore order in key regions throughout Mexico, launching an army crackdown on traffickers in late 2006. More than 4,000 of the victims were killed in Ciudad Juárez , despite the presence of thousands of troops, federal agents, state and local police.
“He extends his condolences to the families and condemns these attacks on consular and diplomatic personnel serving at our foreign missions. In concert with Mexican authorities, we will work tirelessly to bring their killers to justice.”
Hammer said the United States would work with Calderon’s government “to break the power” of drug-trafficking organizations.
There are actually Americans still out there believing that Bahana Obama has raised our image around the world. How deluded must one be to not realize that they are laughing at us on a daily basis. Now it’s being translated into action on a daily basis.
Time to let Texas know what you think about changing our childrens’ textbooks to spin a new version of American history.
From WorldNet Daily:

Look what they’re erasing from U.S. history!
American heroes could get swapped for hip-hop culture in textbooks
A state board of only 15 people will vote on whether to revise U.S. textbooks to omit references to Daniel Boone, Gen. George Patton, Nathan Hale, Columbus Day and Christmas.
The Texas State Board of Education will also vote on a proposal to substitute the term “American” with “global citizen.” (emphasis mine)
Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, is warning Americans to speak up before only eight people, with a majority vote, have a chance to literally rewrite American history.
He appeared on the “Huckabee Show” to explain why the board’s vote matters to the rest of America. Staver said Texas and California are the two largest textbook purchasers in the nation.
“Whatever textbooks they select affect the rest of the country because publishers publish those kinds of books, and the rest of the country follows,” he said.
But because of California’s budget crisis, the state hasn’t been able to purchase as many new textbooks, he explained. So the default is Texas.
“So when this 15-member board – eight people of that will make a majority – make a decision, it will affect the entire nation,” Staver said.
Those eight people could decide what children will learn in various other parts of the country.
According to Liberty Counsel, some of the suggestions that have come forward at various times include:
* Removing references to Daniel Boone, General George Patton, Nathan Hale, Columbus Day and Christmas.
* Including the cultural impact of hip-hop music, ACLU lawyer Clarence Darrow and the Hindu holiday of Diwali.
* Replacing the term “American” with “global citizen” – stating that students need to be shaped “for responsible citizenship in a global society” without any mention of citizenship in American society.
* Replacing expansionism and free enterprise with imperialism and capitalism.
Staver said one proposal suggests the name of Nathan Hale, a patriot of the American Revolutionary War, be removed and replaced with the name of a man who invented fireman helmets. He also said one proposal suggests removal of references to Independence Day.
“Those are no good anymore,” Staver told Mike Huckabee. “America is looked at, not as some country that gave liberty and freedom to others around the world, but as a global villain.”
He warns, one proposal suggests take the Declaration of Independence and literally erasing God from its Preamble.
“A lot of the history – particularly religious history or patriotic history and American exceptionalism – all of that will simply be removed if people around the country don’t speak up,” he said.
Cynthia Dunbar, an elected member of the board and assistant professor at Liberty University School of Law, said, “James Madison warned us that when error is allowed to become steeped in precedent it leads to tyranny. If an erroneous view of our American heritage is allowed to stand, that view will be even more entrenched when we revisit this issue again in 10 years. Since the board consists of only 15 members, the decision of eight individuals may determine what goes into textbooks on a national level; it is crucial that the voices of patriotic Americans be heard.”
The board’s next meeting is in March, and the final reading and adoption of the social studies guidelines will be in May.
