It's NOT About RACE                                                        12-4-2014

HAT is why they are watched more closely by police, NOT their skin color, their BEHAVIOR. Now, the NY City case of the Black man that was choked by police is an interesting issue, because I watched the video of that incident on the night it happened back in July of 2014. 
That man was attacked by the police despite the FACT that he made NO physical or verbal moves to endanger police, he was not armed, he was not aggressive, and he was not committing any crime at the moment. He begged them to let go, because he could not breathe. Having been an LEO myself, I know that perps will often play sick or injured to get you to let go of them, but this was an obvious case of distress. Still, 6 cops piled on top of him and suffocated him to death with NO probable cause. The responsible officer was NOT indicted by the Grand Jury, but SHOULD have been, and at the very least, he should never, EVER be a police officer for another minute. 
The cop that killed the 12-year-old boy with the toy gun? From the cop's perspective, it is not rare for kids that young to carry guns in the city and USE them. He had no way of knowing if the gun was real or not. Yet he had been removed from the Independence, Missouri P.D because he was found to be "Immature and Incapable of making sound decisions". He was not Cop material, and those who examined him in Missouri stated that no amount of training would change the fact that he was not Cop material. The kid was shot before the patrol car had even come to a stop. I saw and heard NO warnings from the cop, just an immediate gunshot. Hard one to call, not being IN the position, but the Cop was not up to the job and his superiors KNEW it. 
Michael Brown? A very BAD BOY with a long record, guilty in the case that resulted in his death. He robbed a store, roughed-up the clerk,  assaulted the police officer and tried to take his pistol. Brown at fault, Wilson's shoot was righteous. The point here is, that RACE is not the issue. If Michael Brown had been White, he would still have been shot by Wilson, and Wilson would have still been right. The difference would have been, that it would never had made national news. Our government, and the inner-city Blacks who play the Race Card are the ones that are MAKING these incidents about race. 
Change won't come through riots, protests, die-ins, screaming, burning and looting, all that does is incite hatred for the offenders and results in exacerbating the division of the races. Change will come ONLY when we muzzle the Race Baiters, especially Holder, Obama, and Sharpton, and address the CAUSES of crime in the inner cities. It will take the cooperation of the schools, churches, and police agencies, and the engagement and accountability of PARENTS. The Media must also be held responsible for their constant throwing of fuel on the fires. They use divisive words and tactics and report half of every story, usually in favor of the perpetrators. We must hold their feet to the fire and demand truth and FAIR reporting of FACTS, not opinions. 
Body cameras for cops are a great idea, as they will protect EVERYONE, and prove who the aggressors actually ARE. No more "he said, she said", scenarios. It's a shame that in 2014 in America, we still have rioting and savage behavior in our streets, the Race Card at play, and Liberals fanning the flames of hatred. Yet this is what the Obama administration has wanted since Day One. THEY have sown this mess and the innocent citizenry is reaping the horrible results. They are deplorable human beings and we need to demand they be held to account for their actions. Gun Granni - Madison's Militia

 Comfort and Joy                                                           12-12-2014


                       It's been a very busy month, hasn't it ? I haven't had much time for writing and if I had, I might not have written anyway. There is just so much going on in the country that it's overwhelming. Of course, the holidays are upon us as well.  The holidays are crazy, stressful, expensive and a whole lot of other things they were never intended to be. Yet somehow, this season still has an almost magical effect on many people. 

                       Christmas has a different meaning to each of us and we all have our unique memories both good and bad. We have our own traditions, passed down from parents and grandparents, and still, too many of us spend this time striving to make everything "Perfect", rather than allowing it to just be joyful. We run ourselves ragged with shopping, cleaning, decorating, baking, wrapping, sending cards and packages, and attending parties. 

                        When I was a kid, my family was one of those that went overboard on Christmas. It was more of a competition than a celebration. Then when I was a young, single mom, it was impossible for me to give as much as we received from the family in Connecticut. I couldn't compete, and it made me feel a deep sense of dread when the holiday drew near.  I was embarrassed and ashamed to give only one gift per person while my son and I were literally buried in bags and boxes. It robbed me of the joy of the holiday year after year. 

                        Today , being much older and a little wiser, as well as a Christian, I see Christmas much differently. With my parents both gone and the longtime estrangement between the rest of the family and myself, I no longer feel the pressure to strive for perfection or to "compete" with anyone, and I have my OWN traditions now.  Christmas in my home is simplified. I shop online beginning in August and am done by Thanksgiving.  Baking and decorating is spread out over the next month and the only parties we attend are the church dinner and the kid's Christmas play.  We focus on time together, relaxing and reflecting on the REAL reason for the day, the Birth of our Savior. We take time to talk and laugh, be thankful and make plans for the new year. 

                      Most people undergo amazing changes at Christmastime. It is the one time of the year that brings out the best in us. Folks are gentler, friendlier, more charitable, and in many cases, energized by the prospect of a new start in January. Sadly, the holiday cheer always seems to fade all too quickly and it's back to "Business as Usual".  As a Christian, I like to think that the holiday glow is a spiritual thing, the Hand of God touching even the hardest of hearts in an attempt to make Himself known to those who don't believe. 

                     This year, like most others since the 60s, the Atheists are out in force, spreading hate, intolerance, and yes, stealing our Comfort and Joy. If we let them. Having been raised by Atheists, I don't hate them, I don't resent them for their views and I don't have any desire to infringe upon their freedom to be non-believers. I DO wonder why they have Christmas trees and gift exchanges on this most Christian of holidays, but Liberals never make sense any other time of year, so why would Christmas be any different ? In any case, their non-belief is their business, not MINE. 

                      So why is it that Atheists have such a rabid need to steal the joy from others? Why does a 2 or 3 week display of a manger scene in public drive them to the brink of insanity ? All of us are exposed to things we object to, find distasteful or disagree with, EVERY day, but in a diverse world such as ours we have to suck it up and just deal with it. I find it objectionable that there are Mosques and Burkha-Clad women on American soil. I find it amoral that people of the same sex can legally marry one another and that abortion is used as a form of birth control. I am upset by the fact that illegals come into our country freely and are cared for with our tax dollars while our veterans are in such need and American kids are hungry, etc., etc. 

                      These are just a few of the things that are forced upon us daily and are contrary to the beliefs of the majority of Americans. Yet I have never seen or heard of a Christian demanding that Mosques be disguised as churches because they offend us, or that Burkhas be banned or we will SUE those who wear them and "Hurt our Tender Feelings".  I don't see any Liberals complaining about Muslims killing homosexuals or beheading their wives. The First Amendment states, "Freedom OF Religion", not "Freedom FROM Religion". The right to proclaim and celebrate our faith, whatever it is, to celebrate our religious holidays and publicly display the symbols of that faith, are Constitutionally Protected. The decision or "Choice" to find these things offensive, is NOT protected. It isn't even reasonable. 

                      Non-Belief is a personal choice that must be dealt with by the person making that choice, not the entire population.  The Freedom from Religion Foundation, or FFRF, and its very bitter members are illegitimate as there exists NO "Right " to non-belief. You are free to CHOOSE it, but no law or court can legally protect or defend it. Nor SHOULD they. It's very easy to simply look the other way when you pass a nativity scene or Christian cross, as I do when I pass a Mosque or a Planned Parenthood office. So let's grow up and deal with the differences. Those who proclaim a love of diversity the loudest, are the least tolerant people of ALL. 

                    Atheism, Feminism, Islam, Homosexual marriage, Racial Division, Illegal Immigration and a lawless government have stolen the happiness from America and her people. We have been robbed of our strength, resilience, sense of humor, and our Comfort and Joy. These things have been replaced by the evils of Political Correctness, Immaturity, Selfishness,Immorality, and Indoctrination by schools and the media. Nothing is fun or funny anymore and the emotionally handicapped take everything as a "Slur" or "Insult". The response of the judicial system and executive branch has been to impose unconstitutional laws, codes and mandates against what they call, "Hate Speech", "Racism", "Homophobia" and the open expression of Faith, Patriotism, and any opposition to the tyrannical government. That is Communism. 

                    The mature and sensible way to deal with the whiners and emotionally fragile is to simply tell them to grow up, deal with it, read the Constitution and be grateful to live in America. This country was founded and built by men and women who were strong physically, emotionally, morally, and spiritually, and it is people like THAT who will reclaim and retain our vital freedoms. There is no place for the weak, the whiners and the sissified. 

                    This Christmas and New Year, let us resolve to be strong Americans and restore our sense of humor, the ability to laugh at ourselves and one another without being cruel or easily offended. Let us respect one another's choices and object only when our Protected rights are violated.  Let us promise ourselves that we will learn what our rights are and are not under the Constitution and exercise and defend those liberties. In 2015, we must toughen-up, become STRONG, Moral, resilient Americans once again and restore the Comfort and Joy to our lives.

Why do we HAVE a Congress ??                                      12-14-2014


              First, a moment for New Lebanon. 

                Last week's Town Board meeting was a yawner, totally uneventful for a change. Councilmen Larabee and Evans were absent. Seems that it gets more and more difficult to have a full board in attendance with each passing month. I guess that once-a-month obligation isn't all that important. Folks like myself, Jeff Winestock, Cynthia Creech and a few others, attend more meetings than the Councilmen do. I missed ONE in all of 2014. 

               There is a new rumor circulating in town that the OTB is leaving soon. I haven't bothered to try to confirm this, but I HAVE heard advertisements on the radio for Chatham's "Side Door Grille" that say that OTB is coming soon to their location. Guess we'll have to wait and see.  A few people have asked me what Supervisor Benson is doing up on his Rt. 5 property with all the heavy equipment. I don't much care about that either, but if I had to guess, I would say he is building a new barn to go along with his pricey, new cattle fencing. Three years ago, he falsely claimed to the people of New Lebanon that HE was a FARMER, remember? I guess maybe he is planning to raise some beef cattle and legitimize his lie. 

                The new M&M Taproom should be opening soon in the Midtown Monstrosity, as they are quite behind schedule. They are nice kids and I hope they do very well. It's nice to have a local boy come home and open a business for a change instead of city newcomers with no clue about country living. Smitty's Pizza has recently started offering live entertainment about once a month and it has been very popular. Maybe we will see him expanding one day soon. Of course there is also the facelift taking place at the old Country Store at West St. and Rt. 20. Amazing difference there already! 

                 Sadly, we have seen two more young locals arrested this week for a burglary in Kinderhook. The getaway driver is a graduate of Lebanon High School and the daughter of a NYS Trooper that trained in Lebanon.  There has been a growing burglary problem in Lebanon in the past year and I can't say for certain if the Kinderhook group is connected, but some of the evidence strongly suggests that it is the same group of young people.  I hate to see our kids take this route. A couple of them are beautiful, young girls with caring parents and they have a long life ahead of them. It's sad that the choices they make today may shape the rest of their lives. Let's pray that they learn their lesson NOW and turn it around before it's too late.

                 Congress.  What exactly is their JOB? What do we pay them a six-figure, lifetime salary FOR?  Isn't it to speak for US, the PEOPLE?  The politicians that make up the House of Representatives has been little more than a Good Ol' Boy's Club for many years, but never have we seen the number of RINOS in the House as we have seen in the past 10 years. Heck, we have Rinos right here at home on our own town boards! Chris Gibson and I have worked together on many grassroots projects in the past two years and we've had some interesting conversations. We disagree often and though I respect his military service and experience, I have little confidence in him as my representative.

                  Chris flip-flops like a fish out of water and as recently as 8 weeks ago, we butted heads over what HE sees as priority issues and what I and millions of other Americans , see as priorities. WE see the Border, Immigration, Benghazi, the IRS, Fast and Furious, ISIS, Executive Over-reach and Amnesty among the most important issues, while Chris seems to think it is more important to focus on growing tourism in NY state. He claims to be a strong advocate of the Second Amendment, yet has voted more than once for bills with hidden funding earmarked for Gun Control. As he did THIS week with the Amnesty bill, which includes over 1 BILLION dollars for Gun Control. The majority of the Republicans voted in favor of unconstitutional, executive amnesty, against the people of America and the Constitution. So much for our big win in November,huh? Republican and Conservative are no longer synonymous.

                 Then there is John Boehner. Good Lord, what a piece of work that guy is! He seemed very energized right after the election, strengthened by the fact that he would have back-up beginning in January. It didn't last long, and Boehner being Boehner, he once again folded under Democrat pressure. BUT, I have inside info that strongly suggests that Mr. Boehner is being blackmailed. Allegedly, the NSA has some serious dirt on old Johnny, and he was given the choice of playing along with the Dems , or being exposed. Sounds about right, after all, that IS how the left gets their way. I don't know what John is guilty of, but nothing surprises me anymore. 

                A lot of Republican Conservatives are demanding Boehner's removal as Speaker and that he be replaced with Trey Gowdy. Now THAT would be positive progress for the GOP! Gowdy takes no prisoners and he is 100% pro-Constitution. In any case, don't be surprised to see a battle to remove Boehner in 2015.  Conservatives have not had fair representation in the house in many years, and now that we have the majority, there is NO excuse for this to continue unless WE allow it. We can not allow it. We can not allow the GOP to nominate RINO candidates for the 2016 election and we can NEVER allow another Clinton in the White House. NO Jeb Bush, NO Chris Christie and NO Mitt Romney or John McCain. We NEED a Ted Cruz, an Allen West, a Rand Paul,a Mike Huckabee or a Gowdy. A STRONG, CONSERVATIVE candidate! So to my Conservative friends, there's enough homework for you for the rest of the year! Get involved. 

                In closing, I need to say something about the Black and Blue issue. I know I covered this pretty well last week in my Ferguson post, but things have escalated in some dangerous ways since then. In NY City yesterday, Blacks and Bleeding-Heart, White Liberals, took to the streets to rally against the NYPD. Their chant was, "What do we want" DEAD COPS! When do we want it" NOW!".  How is that effective activism ? How is that NOT Hate Speech or Conspiracy to Commit Murder? Oh yeah, I forgot, it is BLACKS and LIBERAL WHITES making the threats and calling for the murders, so it's all okay. Meanwhile, young Black males, the REAL root of the issues, are now entertaining themselves by spraying accelerants on innocent white people and setting them on fire. Yes, you read that correctly. Yet the media is not reporting any of these atrocities, and the ACLU has No Comment. Al Sharpton has not addressed it and neither has Eric Holder or Barack Obama. 

              I have said this before and I will damn well say it again; We need to focus on Truth and FACTS, and that means refusing to be politically -correct when it comes to Black crime in America. There are bad cops, no question about it, and I have known a few personally. Still, I believe that MOST cops are good people with good intentions and one of the hardest jobs in the world. They deserve better. WHY are we so afraid to just SAY it? America has a SERIOUS problem with its young, Black men and we MUST start holding THEM, their parents and their community leaders, responsible, and STOP blaming Whites, Cops, Environment, Poverty and for heaven's sake, SLAVERY. Get OVER it. I'm Irish and MY ancestors were the FIRST people to be sold to Americans as slaves, not the Africans!  

              The excuses and free passes based on skin color must END. NO MORE CODDLING, NO MORE ENABLING. Read the articles I have posted below, and ask yourself if you think enough is enough, or we should allow this behavior among Black teens to continue unchallenged. It is NOT racist to speak the truth and point to the REAL causes of the race issues in America, it is Honorable and Responsible, and it is the ONLY way that change will ever take place.

Prepping for a New Year !                                                12-27-2014


                   We had a very nice Christmas at the Cabin, and I hope you and yours did as well.  Now we look forward to a brand-new year, an opportunity for fresh starts and making resolutions we won't keep.  We'll make them anyway. 

                    I truly wish that I could look at 2015 as a Blank Slate, but it isn't and it won't be. Too many things remain unresolved, too many questions unanswered. We're going to see a LOT of changes this year and they will not be small ones. Some will be undesirable, for Conservatives at least, but I believe that the majority of the coming changes will  be positive ones for all of us. 

                     The all-out assault on our police officers by Black radicals seems to have had an effect that few other issues have had in recent years.  All the mind-boggling atrocities perpetrated upon America and the American people by the Obama administration, and some from the Bush administration as well, have gone unaddressed and unpunished, but none are forgotten.  The majority of us are still hungry for closure and accountability and these issues are not going to go away until we get it. The assaults on our freedoms and traditions have simply been simmering below the surface. REAL Americans, those who THINK, pay attention, and know accurate history, who work for a living, obey the law, pay taxes, and take responsibility for their families and themselves, are FED UP. 


                       We who are Patriotic and Proud of our country, have had far more than enough. The final quarter of 2014 has seen the Patriots finally beginning to push back. Ferguson and the murder of two, NYPD Police Officers seem to have been the final straws. The simmer has finally come to a boil. In the past two weeks, I have read statements and comments on various Social Media from people of all ages, sexes and races. The picture these people paint of the depth of their insanity and how prolific mental illness is in America, is terrifying. Millions of people in this, the greatest country on earth, are seriously mentally deranged, void of compassion and conscience,common sense and any idea of right vs. wrong. They are literally dangerous to society as a whole. Which is exactly why we have so much violence. 

                        American adults of all colors are celebrating the cold-blooded murders of police officers and demanding more! They are taking to the streets in support of criminals, perverts, and societal leeches and condoning and PROMOTING lawlessness and violence.  Evil Race-Baiters like Al Sharpton are deliberately inciting violence and acting as accessories after-the-fact, to murder.  The Media is also complicit in the spilling of innocent blood and the excusing of felony behaviors among Black radicals and Liberal idiots.No one is being held accountable and the wrong people are being blamed. This new, Black uprising is not going to be tolerated in 2015 and beyond, nor will the liberal agenda, because REAL Americans are finished with the oppression and bullying from leftists and minorities.

                        Support for the police is at the highest level recorded in many years and the working, middle class is speaking out loudly and with NO political correctness, against the Race Card and the incessant, stale excuse of "Racism" for bad behavior among Blacks. Statistics are what they ARE, and it is embarrassingly simple to research the crime rates among Blacks vs. Whites.  One has only to watch Channel 6 Perp Patrol, Cops, or even re-runs of America's Most Wanted to see who commits the majority of the violent crimes in this country.  For that matter, look at the prison populations, visit a Welfare Office or a Planned Parenthood clinic, then YOU decide what the issues are and what segment of our society needs to pull it together! 


                           No one alive today had a single damn thing to do with slavery, any more than they did with the Revolutionary War. Nobody. Yet that is all we continue to hear, decade after decade. Blacks have not seen oppression for over 50 years, and Racism? It is now Blacks who are the Racists, the oppressors, the most prevalent of thieves, takers, assailants, irresponsible parents, sexually promiscuous, violent, and lazy members of our society.  Those are just the FACTS, not cruelty or racism, just TRUTH, and until we admit it and SAY it, nothing will ever change.

                           The recent behaviors of Black mobs and the lone loonies, have opened the floodgates of many, many years of White frustration and forced tolerance. People are FINALLY saying what has needed saying since the 1960s. It is time for Black coddling to END. Affirmative Action, the NAACP, the Negro College Fund, Food Stamps, Cellphones, and Welfare freebies, ready-made excuses, all must END. NOW, today. Equality means that ALL people of ALL colors and races, are EQUALLY expected to be self-sufficient and responsible, obey the same laws and face the same consequences. We must insist that Blacks and all other leeches sink or swim on their own, because the life-jacket factory is CLOSED. 

             Get a job, pay your own way, get a loan for college or earn a Scholarship based on academic excellence, get off the Welfare Train and the Pity-Pot, raise decent kids, and EVOLVE. If you commit a crime, you do the time, and if you rob a store and try to kill a cop with his own gun, you deserve to be shot. If you make threats against cop's lives on Social Media or anywhere else, you go to jail. That is how it would be if it were Whites doing these things and that is how it must be for Blacks and any other American. 

              Equality is a wonderful thing, but bullying cops, burning Whites alive, robbing, looting and committing arson while hiding behind your skin color is NOT fine, and America is DONE with it. That is NOT equality, it is all-out WAR on Whites and Law Enforcement. Al Sharpton needs to go to prison for a LONG time. First of all, for owing the filthy IRS over 4 MILLION dollars in back taxes. FACT, look it up! Now he has incited violence and is greatly responsible for the murder of the two NYPD officers as well as several people in another riot he spurred in the 1990s. This piece of garbage has his own TV show on the nauseating MSNBC Network and has recently been hired by the Sony Corporation as a "Sensitivity Trainer" in relation to the North Korean hacking of their computers. SERIOUSLY ????     In what psycho ward is that okay ?


           Speaking of SONY, since when does a 4-foot tall, wet-behind-the-ears Dictator tell Americans what movies they can air or view?  Little pervert. America does NOT bow or bend to ANYONE, only Obama does that! The men in MY family and bloodline would tell Little Kim to get back in his playpen and suck on his pacifier! In fact, so would the WOMEN!  Just because we have a sissy, sexually-confused, druggie,Commie, coddled, girly-man in the White House, doesn't mean for ONE minute that Americans have lost THEIR cajones! Try us and see!  Despite the media lies to the contrary, the Liberals and violent Blacks are still a minority in this country and  Right-Wing Rage is on the rise!

See that map??   WHO is the MAJORITY?????

                       



 Quick Notes for Now                                                12-29-2014



                             Just about everyone in town knows Mark Sheline.  Please, if you are a person of faith, keep Mark in prayer as he is in Albany Medical Center and is seriously ill.  Also remember his wife June, and his 3 children, Mark Jr., Erica, and Kenny in your prayers. 


                             Another request for help has come in from Pastor James Manning of the Atlah Ministries of Harlem,N.Y.  PACT and our Activist group, Madison's Militia, are actively assisting in the effort to hold Al Sharpton responsible for his part in the murder of the 2 NYPD police officers and inciting the racial violence in NY and  Ferguson,Missouri.  We also are pressing to have Sharpton arrested for his tax debt of over 4 million dollars, and his firing from MSNBC by boycotting all G.E subsidiaries and products. G.E owns MSNBC.  See more at the link posted below. 


                             The violence against American police officers continues and is escalating, but the mainstream media is not telling you about any of this. While our "president" golfs and basks in the Hawaiian sunshine, law enforcement officers across America are being shot at and targeted by minority and liberal groups, as well as idiot officials such as Bill DeBlasio. See our MM page on Facebook for the details of the latest assaults. 

                             Holding the Race Baiters like Sharpton, Obama, and Holder to account is a great way to begin the New Year.

   TIN HAT PREDICTIONS for 2015                                    12-30-2014

   It's that time again ! I dug my Conspiracy Theorist's cap, also known as my "Tin Hat", out of storage to assist me with my New Year's Predictions.  I always find it amusing to see and hear people's reactions to many of the truths of what our government is actually up to, because let's face it, some of it is so outlandish that the average person simply cannot accept or process it. Which is why it's helpful to approach these issues with a healthy sense of humor. 


                         We humans are an odd lot. Many will devour the grocery store news rags that tout headlines such as, "Celebrity Gives Birth to Alien Baby". Others are obsessed with daytime Soap Operas filled with wealthy, beautiful, conniving villains and vixens or TV shows about walking dead people and vampires. Yet, try to explain to these same folks that the Newtown shootings could not have been real, and they call YOU crazy ! LOL!!  It is what it is and to each his own, I guess. 


                          Personally, it really doesn't faze me even a little bit to be called a Conspiracy Theorist. I do a LOT of research and fact-checking and sometimes I still get it wrong, but more often, I get it right. When I DO manage to hit the mark, it's usually as a result of my gut feeling rather than my research. Always trust your gut. I want to have a little fun with the predictions this year, as Heaven knows we could all use a little more of THAT. So we'll take our time and look at a few things each night in no particular order. 

                          At the moment, I'm knee-deep in several projects at once, one that I'll share here after we finish the predictions, and another that has to do with completing my goal of purging and down-sizing junk and collections. One of my 4 resolutions this year is to finish all the little, home-improvement tasks like my falling-down fence and pot-holed driveway, etc. Another is to organize my wood-shop so I can actually get in there and WORK again. I know I can KEEP those 2 resolutions, but I'll keep the other 2 to myself, just in case! 

           Tomorrow Night: Tin Hat Predictions Part 1.
