From the LA Times:

A U.S. Border Patrol agent can be sued for firing across the border and killing a 15-year-old Mexican boy, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, a decision with potentially broad consequences for the highly charged issue of law enforcement’s use of deadly force along the border.

The decision by a three-judge panel in New Orleans said the allegations in the 2010 shooting of Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca, if proven in court, would amount to “an official abuse of power so arbitrary as to shock the conscience.” Because of that, the case can go forward, the judges ruled.

That “15 year old boy” was someone in the employ of a cartel.  Cartels use teenagers because if they get caught, the American judicial system still thinks it’s 1950 and sends them right back because “children are special” or some such mush-brained feel-good nonsense.  This allows cartels to have very effective scouts who can deliver information on operations almost immediately.  They’re treated with kid gloves by the fedgov and they take every advantage of it.  The law treats them as misguided waifs, rather than career criminals – and thus provides criminal organizations with operatives who are immune to the law.

What the story buries is that the “boy” was throwing stones at the agent while the agent was handcuffing another smuggler.  The “boy” was high in a drainage ditch with an angle to exploit plunging fire while the agent was fighting with another alien he was apprehending.

Lawyers in the case say it’s the first time that an appeals court has extended the protections of the U.S. Constitution to a noncitizen on the Mexican side of the U.S. border.

“It’s a huge human rights victory,” said attorney Robert Hilliard, who represents the boy’s family. “It gives you a voice inside a U.S. courtroom. They have to focus on, ‘Did the border agent do something wrong?’”

It’s a “human rights victory” if you call being able to throw stones at federal agents a “human right”.

Border Patrol officials declined to comment on the decision, which reaffirmed the long-standing rule that the agency itself cannot be sued because of the government’s sovereign immunity. The agent, Jesus Mesa Jr., is liable to the suit because his actions went beyond his lawful authority, the judges said.

“No reasonable officer would have understood Agent Mesa’s alleged conduct to be lawful,” they wrote.

EVERY reasonable officer would’ve understood Agent Mesa’s conduct to be lawful.  He was fighting with one alien and getting stones thrown at him by another alien.

This is what happened to one agent down in the Rio Grande Valley a couple years back:

He went to go catch a group of aliens who proceeded to ambush him and throw stones at him and his vehicle.  A chunk of concrete thrown by an alien went through his window and smashed him in the face, incapacitating him.  I don’t know about other injuries, but I know the group was large (numbers I heard were in the 20s), and a motorcycle tire was thrown through the back window of his vehicle as well.

It’s not exactly uncommon, either.

Thing is, a rock is a perfect weapon against US agents.  Hamstrung by racist organizations like The Race with lawyers that exist to target federal agents, an illegal alien can throw a rock, cause harm, and immediately say they were unarmed.  As soon as their projectile is in the air, they can claim they don’t want any trouble.  They can reach for another one and throw it, and they can play the same game over and over.

The very thing they were hired to do was to apprehend illegal aliens breaking into the country – whether simply breaking in or smuggling.  And with this ruling, a federal agent can now be stoned to death or face a lawsuit – or be forced to retreat from doing their job – ever.

“These are not small harassing attacks,” said Shawn Moran, vice president and spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council, referring to the rock-throwing incidents. “They are more like biblical stonings.”

Moran added that agents were now “open to civil liability for doing their job.”

-

To those in the media, they’re just “kids throwing rocks” and the judges are right and the agent is a maniac who wants to murder honor students.

Some of those people claiming it’s just “kids throwing rocks” would find their perception changes if they were to be pelted with stones and rocks and chunks of concrete in order to get them to understand the actual perception of a “reasonable officer” who’s being rocked.  If Mesa’s lawyer told the judges he was going to throw stones at them for a while in court, and then did so, it would’ve been a 3-0 in favor of Mesa.

Via Breitbart, Eric Holder’s gunrunning ATF is planning to use drones:

Attorney General Eric Holder admitted Tuesday that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was in the process of looking at the use of domestic drones.  …

“Within the Department, the only component that uses these vehicles at this point is the FBI,” Holder explained. “The ATF in the process of working through to see if they want to make use of them.”

And via the Daily Caller, Eric Holder getting mad at being called out for being held in contempt.  Full video of the exchange between TX Rep Louie Gohmert and Mexican-cartel-arms-merchant General Eric “You Don’t Wanna Go There” Holder:

Gohmert is entirely too nice to Holder, and unfortunately seems to try to address a couple too many points as his time runs out.

Remember Fearless Distributing, the ATF’s plan to create crime in Milwaukee?  Or the score of other crime-creating ATF programs in the last year or so?  Apparently just like the ATF’s Gunwalker Operations like Fast and Furious and Castaway, they’re just going to go ahead and never answer any congressional inquiries and simply expect to never be held accountable.

From FOX:

Rep. Darrell Issa has subpoenaed the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for information about what he calls a “dangerously mismanaged” program, which originally was launched to get crime guns off the street.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which Issa chairs, has been looking into complaints about the program for months. Under the operation, ATF agents set up storefronts in multiple cities to try and entice criminals to sell their crime guns, unwittingly, to the government so they could be traced. But their tactics and missteps, including using mentally disabled people, drew criticism.

Issa, R-Calif., claimed this week that the ATF has stonewalled him by withholding documents and shown a “complete lack of cooperation.”

“I have no choice today but to issue the enclosed subpoena,” he wrote to ATF Director B. Todd Jones. “… The time for hollow promises is over.”

Yup, now is the time for coverup and the media to carry the Obama administration’s water.  For those who say FOX is a conservative news outlet, it’s worth reading how this story is written when it comes to the ATF’s actions.

Under the operation, ATF agents set up storefronts in multiple cities to try and entice criminals to sell their crime guns, unwittingly, to the government so they could be traced. But their tactics and missteps, including using mentally disabled people, drew criticism.

If you’re not familiar with it, read the Journal-Sentinel article.  There aren’t “missteps” that drew criticism.  The entire operation is based around the premise of creating crime in order to say they fought crime.

Details on problems with the program first emerged last January, when The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported on missteps in Milwaukee under the program known as Operation Fearless. In that operation, thousands of dollars in merchandise, as well as several guns, were reportedly stolen from ATF agents.

Again, “missteps”, like this was Chevrolet launching a car with wipers that didn’t work.

Details of other similar operations in other cities later emerged, including claims that one operation was located across the street from a middle school. House committees are now investigating, on the heels of the controversy over the botched anti-gun trafficking Operation Fast and Furious.

And here we get to a big one, and a whopper that somehow exists across the media.  Operation Fast and Furious was not botched.  It did just what it set out to do.  It armed the cartels, got guns to the cartels, blamed American gun stores, and got people killed… and when F&F guns were found at murder scenes, ATF supervisers were practically “giddy” (in the words of whistleblower John Dodson).

There was no “botched” about it.  Fast and Furious worked as intended – just the intentions are so insane that people refuse to accept it for what it was.

When congress began questioning whodunnit, the local ATF guys like Bill Newell gave non-answers, the higher-ups gave no answers, and the paper trail consisted of the DOJ issuing redacted blacked-out non-documents to congress while shredding the real thing:

That's not a print of Malevich's "Black Square".

The FOX story continues, but with watered-down treatment again:

ATF agents, though, have defended the storefront program, saying lawmakers overstate the problem.

“Putting this into context, there were deficiencies with the storefront operations, but there have been many successes and it still remains a viable technique when managed well,” ATF Deputy Director Tom Brandon told lawmakers recently.

The operation in Milwaukee, despite its flaws, resulted in dozens of arrests.

“There were deficiencies?”  The ATF defends it, despite it being a crime-creating program, because people will report it without asking why, and without simply restating what it did and how it did it.

Dozens of arrests are meaningless as a statistic against crime, and dozens of arrests when a fedgov agency is off creating crime being used as a defense is horrible.

It’d be like if the Army said of the My Lai Massacre, “Putting this into context, there were missteps, but we got a body count of 347 probable enemy, so it still remains a viable technique”.

Again, keep in mind this is FOX that’s writing the bland media line about what the ATF did.  Other outlets simply don’t report it at all.

-

The only reason this stuff has continued is because the press refuses to do their job.  And the few hard-nosed real reporters left are left hung out to dry for doing their jobs.

Colorado has made news in recent weeks for pretty much decriminalizing marijuana, and they’ve made news in the last year for working to criminalize and infringe upon citizens’ right to keep and bear arms.

But federal law may have already done those forces wanting to disarm Coloradans a big favor, as anyone who’s filled out a Form 4473 to buy a gun already knows from question 11.e.:

4473 marijuana

18 USC 922(g)(3) is the law that provides the basis for that question, and defines a person prohibited from owning a firearm thusly:

(g) It shall be unlawful for any person—
(1) who has been convicted in any court of, a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year;
(2) who is a fugitive from justice;
(3) who is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance (as defined in section 102 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 802));

to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or affecting commerce, any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce.

18 USC 922(g) is a bit long, especially in contrast to “shall not be infringed”, so it isn’t all that surprising that it would be overlooked.

21 USC 802 still lists marijuana as a controlled substance and illegal narcotic, thus every user in Colorado is an unlawful user under federal law – and thus their right to own a firearm is abrogated.

The penalty for toking up and owning a gun?  10 years and a $250,000 fine.

-

You can claim the right to put what you want in your body, but it now comes at the expense of the fedgov denying you your right to protect yourself from harm.  And unlike drug laws, which the Obama administration has chosen to slack off on their duty to enforce, they choose to enforce gun laws though creation of crime, and with Fast and Furious went out of their way to murder people in other nations just so they could go after citizens’ rights in the US.

Judging their actions, this administration is certainly not a fan of pot rights, though it may find it convenient to hop on the bandwagon and have a large section of the population of the state thankful for being able to blaze away their troubles and worries created by this adminstration’s other decisions.

The current administration has made it abundantly clear that they don’t care for citizens with guns and plan on using backdoor “executive actions”, and doubtless they’ll use Colorado’s new decriminalization of marijuana as a means to use federal laws against stoners with guns.

Stoner guns especially.

*Just to be totally accurate, there are about four people in the US who could both smoke pot in Colorado and still own a gun, because it’s contingent on federally legal use.  But Irvin Rosenfeld lives on the east coast, not Colorado.

David Gregory and Toys For Totalitarians

It’s been a little over a year since the most popular post to date here at The Patriot Perspective.  David Gregory waved a 30-round magazine that’s illegal in DC on TV in clear violation of the law.  NBC staff went to the DC police beforehand and asked permission but was denied, so they willingly and knowingly violated DC law, and yet no one faced charges, in a clear case where if you’re rich and powerful and politically connected, the laws don’t apply to you.

david gregory if I were you

Now this year, Mike Vanderboegh over at Sipsey Street Irregulars (famously one of the blogs that broke Fast and Furious) has started a little Christmas season campaign called “Toys for Totalitarians”, wherein he sends standard capacity rifle magazines to governors of anti-gun states and a few media figures who’ve championed for anti-gun causes – often where their receipt and possession of a magazine is in violation of their own laws, just to yank their chains and invite them to arrest themselves and enforce their own laws.

And he sent one to David Gregory:

Re: Your award in the Sipsey Street Irregulars Toys for Totalitarians Campaign.

Congratulations! Enclosed you will find my Christmas gift to you, one twenty-eight-round standard capacity AR-15 magazine in 7.62×39 caliber, manufactured by C Products Defense, Inc. of Bradenton, Florida. You have been awarded this gift as part of what my friend David Codrea calls my “Toys for Totalitarians Campaign.” We had a few magazines left over after sending them to the governors of Colorado, Connecticut, Maryland and New York so we decided to select collectivist media purveyors who likewise deserved our scorn and your name was among five at the top our list! You earned that thanks to your previous run-in with the District of Columbia’s draconian law when you flashed an AR-15 magazine to make a gun control point and suffered not at all thanks to the usual collectivist hypocrisy that is characteristic of the anointed of the DC Mandarin class to which you and your wife, former federal prosecutor and former Fannie Mae executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary, Beth Wilkinson, belong. (We could chat about her role in the cover-up of the Oklahoma City bombing, but then I really don’t have the inclination at the moment — so many smuggling challenges, so little time.)

So your anti-firearm hypocrisy is legendary and it goes without saying that you have a distinct bias when it comes to citizen disarmament. So I selected a magazine for you in the caliber of 7.62×39, for that is the round originally designed for Mikhail Kalashnikov‘s AK-47. Given your collectivist politics, I thought it was an appropriate choice, since Kalashnikov was an unrepentant Soviet to the end of his days. (Kalashnikov, of course, just crossed over to meet his Maker. I’m sure his conversation with God about Stalin was an interesting one.) From one collectivist to another, I thought. Dulce et decorum est.

Anyway, now that you’ve accepted another piece of technology that is illegal within the confines of the District of Columbia, you are once again in violation of the law. Why don’t you go down and turn yourself in for arrest? I mean, if you are intellectually honest you would, right? Oh, wait, the terms “intellectually honest” and NBC cannot be used in the same sentence, now can they?

As for myself I will continue my campaign of armed civil disobedience — including smuggling — against this latest spate of unconstitutional state laws. You may choose to twist that news in service to the collectivist meme however you like. You always do.

Sincerely, and hoping you have a happy socialist Kwanzaa (a holiday invented by an FBI COINTELPRO stooge),

Mike Vanderboegh, Smuggler

The alleged leader of a merry band of Three Percenters

Reprinted in full so as not to lose any of the heavily acerbic punch.

If more people were to do this, it might work like those old “mail a brick” protests.  Hmm…

For those who’ve missed the news in the last few months, the knockout game is a “game” where urban kids punch unsuspecting people in the head and try to knock them out with one blow.  Or many.

You can peruse WorldStarHipHop for plenty of examples.

The perpetrators are almost exclusively of one ethnic background, while their victims are usually of a specific ethnic background, but they target a few different groups.

From the DOJ:

Conrad Alvin Barrett, 27, has been charged with a federal hate crime related to a racially-motivated assault of a 79-year-old African American man, announced   Acting Assistant Attorney General Jocelyn Samuels of the Civil Rights Division along with U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson of the Southern District of Texas and Special Agent in Charge Stephen L. Morris of the FBI.

See, if you’ve missed the discussions of it in the news for the last few months, the ethnic background of the punchers is almost exclusively black.  The ethnic background of the punched are typically white and/or Jewish, but have also included at least one noteworthy asian – a congresswoman.  Also, frequently the targets are women.

This worthless sack of garbage just did the reverse for attention:

According to the complaint, Barrett comments in a video that “the plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?”   The complaint further alleges Barrett claims he would not hit “defenseless people” just moments before punching the elderly man in the face.   Barrett allegedly hit the man with such force that the man immediately fell to the ground.   Barrett then laughed and said “knockout,” as he ran to his vehicle and fled, according to allegations.   The complaint indicates the victim suffered two jaw fractures and was hospitalized for several days as a result of the attack.

This guy’s absolute garbage, but he’s also something else.  He’s in it for the attention, like spree killers going for news media coverage.

He wanted to see if it would be nationally televised, because his attack would be one of the incredibly rare examples where colors were reversed.

Anyone paying attention knows the DOJ is biased and that they will prosecute only when it’s in ideological agreement with their beliefs.  This dirtbag who punched a 79 year-old man did so because he figured he’d play on the DOJ for some fame.

It’s sickening on so many levels.  First that some people are more equal than others and that there are “hate crimes” where the color or orientation of the victim means more than the act itself – so there is no equal justice.   Second is that the Obama administration and Eric Holder’s DOJ is such a mockery of justice that they ignore waves of crimes and single another out.   Third is that their very ideology means they only engage in prosecution that agrees with their worldview and that means some dirtbag like this would see assaulting an innocent old man as his key to fame.  Fourth is that when that violence is ignored depending on who the perpetrators are and who the victims are it leaves both groups in turmoil and harms both communities – one community is victimized directly, the other is victimized by having criminals left unchecked in their midst.

The justice system is so screwed up under the social justice progressives that this slackjawed misanthrope knew everything he needed to do to make national news was to just commit a crime that gaves the racists at the DOJ something to hold up.

“It is unimaginable in this day and age that one could be drawn to violently attack another based on the color of their skin,” said Special Agent in Charge Morris.   “We remind all citizens that we are protected under the law from such racially motivated attacks, and encourage everyone to report such crimes to the FBI.”

What a load of crap.

Hey FBI – here’s one to investigate – the victims even managed to fight back and subdue the attacker:

And just so this is crystal clear, there are plenty of folks of all races who recognize this kind of violence for what it is.  There’s no shortage of good people out there saying what it is and calling for an end to it.

Just for two examples, the first is an impassioned, emotional call for an end to the knockout game, the second an assessment more on the practicality of it (with a bit of humor at the end).

-

Update: I realized I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention again and elaborate that there is black-on-black knockout game crime, but it’s another type of crime that goes ignored as it has notably become a prominent black-on-someone-else crime in the last couple years.

For the big government progressive at the DOJ, black-on-black knockout game crime is no more a concern than murders in Chicago are.  Addressing crumbling families (like how Kentray Brown in the first video mentioned there must not be father figures to the kids going polar bear hunting or knocking out UPS drivers or teachers) would require addressing the progressive roots of the destruction of the black community through “help”, as well as the progressive cultural agenda that has utterly failed the black community (though progressives are happy with LBJ’s contemptuously racist promise he’d have black folks voting Democrat for 200 years).

Conservative types often don’t discuss it either because they don’t want to be perceived as racist or because it’s not going on in their neighborhood, or a combination of both.

As evidenced above, there are folks of all races who address that type of knockout game crime, but their voices may not be heard very loudly on a bigger stage.  Their voices are those within a community, though, not of some disconnected talking head in the media nor of some politician in government.

Theirs are cruel and tragic.  In addition to being offensive, stupid, destructive to communities, exploitative of the mentally handicapped, and entrapment when they hire felons to work in their phony gun stores.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that in addition to Fearlessly Distributing guns to criminals, the ATF has plenty more violently stupid operations going on:

Agents pressed suspects for specific firearms that could fetch tougher penalties in court. They allowed felons to walk out of the stores armed with guns. In Wichita, agents suggested a felon take a shotgun, saw it off and bring it back — and provided instructions on how to do it. The sawed-off gun allowed them to charge the man with a more serious crime.

In Pensacola, the ATF hired a felon to run its pawnshop. The move widened the pool of potential targets, boosting arrest numbers.Even those trying to sell guns legally could be charged if they knowingly sold to a felon. The ATF’s pawnshop partner was later convicted of pointing a loaded gun at someone outside a bar. Instead of a stiff sentence typically handed down to repeat offenders in federal court, he got six months in jail — and a pat on the back from the prosecutor.

There are all kinds of these storefront operations set up around the country, where the ATF goes in, rents a storefront, sells goods for below cost, then offers to buy stolen items and guns.  It ends up creating crime.

An undercover operation in Atlanta, a smoke shop called ATL Blaze, experienced similar problems. Some defendants came to the store as many as 20 times after stealing weapons and other goods.

Some guns were stolen from police squad cars. ATF agents said in court documents they tried to deter such thefts by paying less for police guns.

The burglaries associated with ATL Blaze caused other problems for local law enforcement. Sheriff’s deputies and local police — unaware the weapons had already been recovered by federal agents — scrambled around to solve the burglaries, spending untold resources interviewing witnesses.

At times, they never solved the case. And the weapons never made it back to the owners.

A Hi-Point pistol stolen from a car just after Christmas in 2010, for example, was still listed as stolen by the Fulton County Police Department when the Journal Sentinel contacted the department last month. ATF agents bought the gun at their secret storefront a week after it was taken.

“If the ATF recovered this weapon, it should be in our system.” said Lt. G.T. Johnson, of the department. “We have not received any notification that it was recovered.”

The lack of communication not only affects the clearance rate for the police department but also is a problem for whoever has the gun now, Johnson said.

Molchan, the state prosecutor in Pensacola, said there were worries at the outset that the sting might encourage more burglaries, but agents in charge concluded the risk was worth it.

“That is one of the concerns that you have going into something like this,” he said. “That is certainly worrisome.”

And it’s not just residents that got hit by the thieves. Anything for a Buck itself was ripped off, just like the agency’s Fearless storefront in Milwaukee. The Pensacola sting was burglarized at least twice, records show.

“I remember hearing that and kind of laughing about it, ‘We got burglarized,’” Molchan said.

Despite those problems, Molchan said he thinks the operation was successful.

“We did accomplish getting the bad guys off the street and incarcerated them,” he said. “Certainly no operation is perfect, but overall we view it as a major success.”

They accomplished creating crime where there was less before they arrived.  They don’t live in those neighborhoods, and yet they worked to destroy local communities, hurt residents with crime, generate more crime, burden local authorities with having to fight the crime they create, and then leave victims of theft still violated by the loss of their property.

One of the larger thefts linked to the operation was that of engagement and wedding rings, worth $15,000, that were stolen four months after the store opened.

“It requires no great thinking to know if you accept stolen goods in a pawnshop … people are going to sell you stolen goods,” said Harris, the professor from Pittsburgh. “You’re asking people who frequent that place to rob and burglarize their neighbors.”

It’s unclear how many of the stolen items were returned to their rightful owners. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office put thousands of items on display at an open house after the bust and invited the public to come in to claim their belongings. Laptops, GPS devices, tools and jewelry filled the room.

According to local news accounts at the time, just 23 items — not including guns — were returned to 10 people. The sheriff’s office refused to answer Journal Sentinel questions.

But wait, there’s more – ATF agents encouraged local kids who hung out at the Squid’s pawn shop next to a school (for added school zone crime penalties) to play video games to get tattoos:

Glover and Key, both 19 at the time, were regulars at Squid’s. Glover lived right around the corner and spent hours at a time playing video games with Squid and people he thought were store workers.

One day the idea of getting a tattoo came up, Glover told the Journal Sentinel.  Glover said he was reluctant, but that he was persuaded by the guys at Squid’s, who he thought were his friends.

“It was like, ‘Now you guys are honorary members of the club,’” Glover said. “We was young at the time … I was so naive.”

After they got the tattoos, he said agents took pictures and posted them on the phony storefront’s Facebook page and website.

“They humiliated us,” he said. “They were making a mockery of us.”

Glover was ultimately charged with trading an ounce of marijuana for clothing at the store. The charge included selling drugs within 1,000 feet of a school.

Little, who spent eight years as a federal prosecutor in California and a year as associate deputy attorney general in Washington, D.C., said he had never heard of such out-of-bounds behavior by federal agents.

“That’s about as far over the line as you can imagine,” Little said. “The government shouldn’t be encouraging people to permanently disfigure their bodies.”

Little was apparently unaware of Fast and Furious, where the ATF ran guns to the Mexican narcoterrorist cartels with the intent of finding them at crime scenes.

Charles Cooke at NRO did a piece on the Journal-Sentinel story and even got Fast and Furious wrong:

The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) is probably best known these days for the failure of its disastrous Fast and Furious scheme — a botched initiative that aimed to give American guns to Mexican cartels first and to ask questions later. Under pressure, the administration was quick to imply that the mistake was an aberration.

There was nothing “botched” about it.  The ATF set out to send guns to the cartels and did so.  They intended to send guns to the cartels, and they did so.  The administration made up their own story, but proceeded to hide behind executive privilege when pressed for details and information about who was responsible.

If something is an “aberration” or a “botched sting”, then there’s nothing to hide.  There’s only accepting responsibility for mistakes.  Fast and Furious was no mistake.

Fearless Distributing and Squids and Anything for a Buck were not mistakes – they were all deliberate strategies by the ATF.  The ATF agents above even said they believe they’re doing the right thing by creating crime because then they take “bad guys off the street” – bad guys they enabled, supported, and helped to facilitate.

They hired felons in their stores to entrap people.  They contributed and encouraged thefts and crime.  They kept local law enforcement in the dark while spurring criminal enterprises in their communities.  They took advantage of the mentally handicapped.  They gave guns to felons walking out of their own stores – people they knew were criminals – and did nothing.

The JPFO is right – it’s time to boot the ATF.

House Majority whip Republican Kevin McCarthy of California says amnesty is going to happen.

Illinois Democrat Rep. Luis “My Only Loyalty Is To Illegal Aliens” Gutierrez says Republicans are telling him amnesty will happen.

“When I talk to my Republican friends,” Gutierrez said, “[they tell me] all of the parts will lead to the full package.”

He made his comments on Al Jazeera America’s Inside Story on Friday. Gutierrez has called Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) his “ally” in his quest for amnesty and has praised Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) as well. He emphasized that he, like President Barack Obama, does not care if immigration reform is “in parts and pieces as long as in the end, there is a full menu.”

Last week, President Barack Obama said of the comprehensive bill that passed the Senate, “If they want to chop that thing up in five pieces, as long as all five pieces get done, I don’t care what it looks like. Then, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said that immigration reform was “absolutely not” dead.

Note Gutierrez was going to Al Jazeera to brag.  And let’s not forget that Paul “Screech” Ryan is so much a RINO that Tanzanian poachers hang out by his house.

Joe Biden’s been hanging out with illegal alien supporters on the national mall, and Pelosi’s willing to let the GOP surrender inch by inch.

Meanwhile, billionaire Mark “Here’s A Tip – I’m Rich So Screw You” Zuckerberg has decided he’s going to flaunt immigration law by hosting “hackathons” with illegal aliens while telling you that it’s a civil right for someone else to break into your house and thereby it becomes their civil right to sleep in your bed.  After all, being a citizen of one nation doesn’t mean you don’t have a civil right to the goods, services, and privileges of another nation.  He’s also funding propaganda to support the right of invaders to live in your house, and telling the agents who are tasked with your protection by enforcing immigration law “screw you”.  (Standby for our Facebook page vanishing if JBH cross-posts it there.)

Nice to know that somebody who made billions in the US market is ready to try to destroy the nation.  And of course he won’t listen to ICE agents about illegal aliens and why we’d want to screen people for admission coming into the country.  He’s a billionaire.  He’s the Ruling Class through and through.  He’s not going to get his store robbed by some gangster illegal alien from the Ukraine, or shanked by a “gardener” illegal alien who was hacking people up with machetes during the El Sal civil war.

He’s going to get cheap labor for programming while he ditches American workers.  Democrats get free votes, Republicans get cheap labor.  The American citizenry, legal immigrants, legal residents, and everyone who played by the rules and believes in the rule of law gets screwed.

Folk Musicians Suck

Posted: November 2, 2013 by ShortTimer in Crime, Culture, Music

From FOX:

Federal officials have launched an investigation after a set of names were found carved into a national monument in Montana where explorer William Clark signed his moniker more than 200 years ago.

The new marking on Pompeys Pillar National Monument is about 3 feet from the signature of Clark, a member of the Corps of Discovery expedition that opened a land route to the West. It reads: “Cole + Shpresa 10/10/2013″ and includes a heart.

Bureau of Land Management personnel noticed the carving on the sandstone formation during a walkthrough Oct. 17. Someone had to climb over a railing to make it.

Officials told KRTV.com that Cole Randall and Shpresa Lieshiaj, both of Minnesota, were questioned by park officials after a silent alarm was triggered. Authorities have not identified either Randall or Lieshiaj as suspects.

Not suspects?

folk musician vandals suck

Seriously, they carved their names IN STONE.  Cole may not be the most uncommon name, but Cole + Shpresa?  And authorities found it the same day a silent alarm was triggered… and they encountered two people named Cole and Shpresa there… and they still couldn’t connect the dots?

blm officer barbrady

Or is the BLM cop who handles defacing of historical sites still on furlough?

KXLF in Montana identifies these warbling snots for what they are:

On Thursday, officials confirmed that Cole Randall and Shpresa Lieshiaj were the couple that was stopped at the historic monument after a silent alarm was triggered.

Randall and Kieshiaj are a singing duo in Minnesota that perform as “Flora Cash.”

Their website states that they were on a tour of the “heartland” from July 20 through October 17.

Modern folk musicians suck.  Their music sucks, and they suck.  And their vandalism sucks in its own special ways beyond just run-of-the-mill sucking.
