Grass and Muslims                                                   5-2-2012


       Back to the Capitol lawn issue!  There IS an update.  As you know, Cuomo is standing by his ludicrous estimate of $60,000.00 to repair the Capitol lawn after the muddy rally of 2-28-13.  A month ago, some of the Pro-2A Groups had a meeting, and we decided that we would take our rakes, shovels, rollers and seed and repair the small amount of lawn that does exist at the Swan Street side of the Capitol.  One of us is a professional landscaper, so we were ready to go on that Sunday morning.  Sadly, an inside source informed us that work had begun already on the small strip that remained bare, and that 2/3 of the lawn had grown back on it's OWN!  So after contacting Assemblyman McLaughlin to inform him of our plans, we were now unable to carry them out.

       Ah, BUT, Cuomo had made the public statement of the cost being $60,000.00, so he HAD to make it good!  The grass that had returned on it's own, and some seed where it had not, was not good enough. He had to SPEND ! So he put about 15 men on the job and ordered expensive and unnecessary SOD delivered to the Capitol. Not only did they re-sod the bare spots, they dug up ALL the grass and replaced it ! Apparently, nobody bothered to tell them that sod needs a LOT of water every day to take root. It died.  LOLOL!!    The 15 workers returned and ANOTHER truckload of fresh sod was delivered! YOUR money, folks!

       I do believe our gangster governor might just reach that goal of 60k if he keeps going the way he is now. Of course, we all KNOW what this is really all about.  The gangster wants to take a shot at turning the taxpayers against the Pro-Gun groups by claiming WE cost them the 60k. DON'T drink the Kool-Aid !  This work could have and would have been done by US for FREE, and could have been done by pros for a couple of thousand,tops.  Now it has been a three-week long job, 15 workers to be paid, and a truckload of WASTED sod. Just another sorry attempt to demonize the Constitutionalists.  It ain't workin' Andy! 

       Naturally, no mention was ever made of the fact that TWO rallies in January and February of 2013 which drew a combined total of 23,000, had NO vandalism, no disturbances, and no garbage left behind. We made SURE of that!  Cuomo's only mention of the rallies was to whine over the grass.  Seeing as most of the area is paved, I feel very little sympathy.  In fact, to be 100% honest, I felt a bit of pleasurable vindication after the rally when I stood and looked at the mud left behind. It felt good to know that Cuomo would have to look at that mud until Spring and remember that the feet of Patriots exercising their right to a redress of grievances, had created that wallow.  I STILL would have shared in the labor of re-seeding, because it was the right thing to do, but I also took  pleasure in Cuomo's anger.

    Here's a question to ponder: What will Cuomo do when the next group of indignant New Yorkers gather on that new sod?  They WILL, it's only a matter of WHEN. We cannot be denied access to the Capitol or the grounds as it is OUR house, the same as the White House is. Both belong to the PEOPLE, not the politicians we allow to work there.  It will be interesting.  I'm sure he will call out his personal army, the NYS Police to handcuff the "Trespassers".  Gotta feel for the majority of the Troopers in one way, but in another way, I feel that they are a large enough group to take a stand against their union and upper-echelon and refuse to enforce the Safe Act, as the Sheriffs have. They forget that they do NOT work for the gangster governor, they work for the PEOPLE of New York, same as Cuomo does.  If they stand with US, we will stand for them.

      So when you listen to the biased media talk about the cost of repairing the Capitol lawn, remember that it was Cuomo's CHOICE to do it this way, to spend so much money needlessly. Why would he CARE, it isn't HIS money, it's YOURS!   Thank you to Steve McLaughlin for demanding an accounting of every dime!

                                         GITMO ?


       The Teflon Muslim made yet another telling statement this week. He publicly announced that he is "No longer the strapping young Muslim he once was." !  Holy Crap, that guy is a dolt ! Fortunately, his statement is on tape, because his personal protectors, the MEDIA, have already edited it out of their news reports.  On top of that, he also said, "God Bless You" to the Planned Parenthood killers at their convention last week.  God Bless the child-murderers? Highly unlikely. 

        Now he's back on the "Close Gitmo" kick he used in his first campaign. His reasons? Quote: " Detaining people indefinitely without a trial is contrary to who we are.". Ummm, WHAT?!?!?   Does that sound at all Familiar to you? Like maybe the Patriot Act that allows our government to indefinitely detain innocent Americans without charge or trial?!?!  It's okay to treat Americans that way, but NOT the Islamic Extremists that killed THOUSANDS in the Twin Towers??????   ANY other country would have executed all 166 of those inmates LONG ago!  I am sick to death of Islam and an idiot president that licks the sandals of Muslim Leaders who abhor us, while at the same time he is attempting to strip Americans of their liberties. I have had enough of immigrants who refuse to assimilate and earn their own keep.

       Every day, I receive email reports on a great number of issues. Some come from individuals or tipsters, and some from organizations. On a quiet day, I can expect about 100 emails in both boxes, combined. On a busy day, that number can be as many as 300. I spend so much time weeding out the wheat from the chaff, that I get behind on reading the important stuff. 

      One organization that I get daily updates from is called appropriately, "Creeping Sharia".  This group monitors all criminal and aberrant behaviors by Muslims on American soil.  Personally, the few pieces I receive about things Muslims do in their OWN countries, are immaterial. I feel that they should be allowed to follow their own traditions in their own land. As should WE.  However, Islam is a POWERFUL and WEALTHY cult with a very long reach. They have spread to every corner of the world. Those who choose to come to America fail to assimilate and refuse to obey our laws and respect our culture.

     Though they are free to worship as they please, they are NOT free to inject Sharia Law into our justice system or to murder innocent Americans in the name of Allah, or Mohammed or King Tutti-Frutti.  Can you imagine, Americans moving to Iraq and building Christian Churches or Jewish Temples and killing Muslims in the name of God? what if we insisted that only American Law could be applied to Americans in their country?  Better yet, imagine what they would do to an American woman who went out in public in shorts and a tube-top or skinny jeans !  She would be stoned to death.  So why is it, that if Americans in Iraq, including our female soldiers who must wear head scarves, are respectful of Iraqi custom, why do we not require foreigners and newcomers to respect OUR culture when they come HERE?

       Instead, we are expected to "Tolerate" Mosques popping up in every city and town, even at Ground Zero. Obama publicly stated that Americans have NO RIGHT to criticize the Prophet Mohammed !! Muslims HATE US and want all non-Muslims dead, especially Christians and Jews. They do not come to America or any other country seeking a better life, they come to infiltrate and inject their blood-lust into every nook and cranny. These are a people who if they so much as suspect that a woman has looked at or spoken to a man other than her husband, will kill her with no consequences for their crime.

     I have SEEN video of a Muslim woman buried to her neck in sand while her husband and sons winged rocks at her head. When she didn't die immediately and her eye twitched, her youngest child lifted a rock the size of a bowling ball and crushed his mother's skull. Many times, if a Muslim man tires of a wife, he will make false allegations of infidelity against her and she will be stoned to death, solving his problem. Should we allow such atrocities in America in the name of Religious Freedom? Do you TRULY believe that our primarily Christian forefathers had Islam in mind when they penned the First Amendment?  Of course not, yet  everyone, even Muslims, have the right to worship freely in America, but PEACEFULLY.

      There is NO law that gives them immunity from American Law on American soil. We MUST STOP being influenced by the Speech Police and set clear limits on what we are willing to accept from these extremists when they come to our country. We MUST re-instate the death penalty for anyone who commits an act of terror, be it a Middle-Easterner or an Home-Grown. Death sentences must be carried out in an expedient manner. Only then, will we not only see terror attacks cease, but all violent crime worthy of the death sentence. We must stop coddling criminals of all ethnicities, but especially those who are not even natural-born Americans.

      Why do we allow the safety and future of our children to be compromised by evil foreigners? Do we fear the P.C Police and possibility of arrest for a "Hate Crime" so much that we remain silent in the face of evil?  While those who are determined to destroy us flow freely across our borders, our government is busy exploiting the actions of ONE madman in Connecticut to disarm Americans.  Could it be that the president shares the goals of his fellow Muslims?  You BET!  WHY would we EVER allow ourselves to be disarmed at ANY time, for ANY reason, especially at such a perilous time in American history as we are seeing today?

      Where IS the Common Sense, the respect for those who have fought and died for our rights and liberties, the support for law-abiding, natural Americans? Why are Christians and Patriots being persecuted while foreign terrorists receive special protections?  Liberal Progressive Logic, Up is Down and Right is Wrong. STOP being intimidated by them and say "ENOUGH!".  SAY what you know needs saying. To H_LL with the ACLU and the Speech Cops, you are FREE to speak out. Stand up for your country, or find another one.

Boston Bomber Judge’s Middle Eastern Connections

Posted on April 29, 2013 by creeping
After roughly 16 hours of questioning, investigators were surprised when a magistrate judge and a representative from the U.S. Attorney’s office entered the hospital room and read Tsarnaev his rights, the four officials and one law enforcement official said. Investigators had planned to keep questioning him.
District Court Judge Marianne Bowler arrived at the hospital where he is being treated to preside over his initial hearing Monday, when she read him his Miranda rights.
But Fox News’ sources say there was confusion about Bowler’s timing, with some voicing concerns that investigators were not given enough time to question Dzhokhar under the “public safety exception” invoked by the Justice Department.
Two officials with knowledge of the FBI briefing on Capitol Hill said the FBI was against stopping the investigators’ questioning and was stunned that the judge, Justice Department prosecutors and public defenders showed up, feeling valuable intelligence may have been sacrificed as a result.
Judge Bowler has some interesting international connections. She is a member of the Member of the International Judicial Relations Committee of the Judicial Conference of the United States.
Apparently in that capacity, she visited and spoke on legal issues at a number of Muslim countries, becoming the first female judge to speak in Kuwait, appearing also in Egypt and in the United Arab Emirates.
Oddly enough, aside from a visit to the US embassy in Belgrade, those are the only international appearances that she lists and they all take place in Muslim countries.
While Islamic infiltration of our political system is well known, the infiltration of our legal system is less well known, but operates within similar parameters with foreign contacts being made. There is no way of knowing how much Bowler has been influenced by her connections with the legal and political systems of the Muslim world, but it is telling that her international judicial relations appear to begin and end with the Muslim world.
PS: We can’t keep up with the endless and ever-changing story around the Boston bombers, and that is probably exactly what the Ministry of Truth wants.

AP Omits ‘Muslim’ from Obama WH Correspondents Dinner Joke

Posted on April 29, 2013 by creeping
In some of its reports on Saturday night’s White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD), the Associated Press failed to include one of President Obama’s own gags.
AP strangely left out the word “Muslim” in one of Obama’s self-referential jokes.
Early in his comments on April 26, President Obama made reference to his young life with a joke and a visual image projected on the video screen.
President Obama then said,
“These days I look in the mirror and have to admit, I’m not the strapping young Muslim Socialist that I used to be. Time passes, you get a little gray.”
In one version of the night’s story (as seen at Huffington Post, Time Magazine, Breitbart Wires, the Ottawa Citizen, and The Columbian to name a few), the AP’s Bradley Klapper forgot one part of the President’s joke.
“I’m not the strapping young Socialist that I used to be,” the president remarked, and then recounted his recent 2-for-22 basketball shooting performance at the White House Easter Egg hunt.
In other versions of Klapper’s story, the word “Muslim” does appear.
He’s not strapping or young. End of joke.

China has a Jihadi Problems, Too – 21 Dead

UIGHURISIn the deadliest ethnic violence in China since 2009, 21 people were killed in confrontations Tuesday between police and Uighur residents of Kashgar, the country’s westernmost city.

Among the dead were 15 police and neighborhood security officers and six people that the state media described as “mobsters.’’
Kashgar, which lies close to China’s borders with Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, has been a frequent site of violence between the dominant ethnic Han Chinese and the Uighurs, a Muslim minority. As is often the case, it was difficult to confirm details of the incident and the account offered up by authorities was vague.
Tianshan.com, a website run by the Chinese government, reported Wednesday that three neighborhood security officers tried to confiscate knives from a family .

BIG News Day!!!                                                5-8-2013


                    Finally, we are getting some truth about Benghazi. Congress is actually DOING something!  Seems for the first time in many years, Americans have demanded justice and facts and are actually getting both. Of course, the  Liberals in Congress are still making excuses and pointing fingers at the Whistle-Blowers, calling this investigation a "Political" attack on the left.  They are scared, as their acting "President" and  presidential hopeful, the Evil Hillary Clinton, are BOTH on the chopping block, as they SHOULD be !  Had this been a Republican administration, the people involved would have been terminated and criminally charged a long time ago.

                    I deliberately worked indoors today so I could see as much of the hearing as possible.  Watching and listening to high-ranking men in uniform tell the actual FACTS of 9-11-2012 in Libya, was amazing. To hear them clearly state that Washington ordered SEVERAL available  response teams to STAND DOWN despite numerous calls for help was heart-wrenching and exciting at the same time. Susan Rice was proven to be the liar she is, as was Hillary and many others. All the unanswered questions are being answered and if there is ANY justice and Common Sense left in this country, heads will roll.  We might actually see Obama escorted from the White House. My dream may come true !

                   (  I have Channel 6 News at 11 on, and just saw myself grappling with the Hudson City Legal Board again. Hm, they must be up to something new, to be re-airing a video from February.  I guess I have work to do. )

                   Also today, Jody Arias was found guilty of 1st Degree Murder in the killing of her boyfriend.  Deservedly. Sentencing will depend on the level of cruelty involved in the murder. Well let's see, she shot him while he was taking a shower, then  stabbed him 27 times times, then slit his throat from ear to ear. Is that cruel ENOUGH ? GEEZ !! She'll get the Death Penalty, which in America really means "Life on Death Row" because very few states EVER carry out a death sentence. If we DID, we wouldn't have HALF the crime we have and the Liberals would see exactly HOW to stop violence in a sensible and fair manner.  TOUGHER sentences for criminals, NOT Gun-Grabbing and criminalizing the law-abiding gun owners. DUH! 

          Which reminds me of Obama's latest brilliant idea to let felons out of prison to alleviate over-crowding.  Ummm, we have a serious unemployment problem in America that could be greatly reduced by building MORE prisons. Not only manufacturers of the required materials, but engineers, contractors and labor, medical, clerical and security jobs, and on and on.  Hey, they could even save taxpayer's money by using the abandoned military bases and prisons that FEMA and DHS just had completely refurbished with our money to illegally detain American dissidents.  WoW!  Look at how many problems could be solved in one fell swoop! We could reduce crime, increase employment, and eliminate the need for the Patriot Act all at one time!  See? Governing sensibly isn't so hard after all !

           At the local level, I had a brief conversation with a local official yesterday. This is a person that I respect, one of those people that I can disagree with and we remain friends. We talked about the practice of Board-Stacking in town and the bias in appointing folks to town positions. My friend stated that he strongly supports the right of the Town Board to make appointments and legally, he is 100% correct. Town Law states the same. However, what is legal is not always ethical or moral. Abortion is legal, same-sex marriage is legal, but that does not make either of them "right".

           The bottom line is, that Leaders should be men and women of truth, honor and selflessness. To "Lead" is to set a good example and look out for those who put their trust and faith in you. Following today's so-called Leaders is akin to stepping off a cliff.  Just as our town law grants appointment power to the Council, it also states the procedure for making those appointments. Such as, the advertising of vacant positions in the local newspaper and a set deadline for Letters of Interest to be submitted.  OUR Council only advertises if and when it suits them and will extend the deadline for submissions if they are unhappy with the applicants they receive and have another in mind.

         If only one or two people apply by the deadline, the Council is bound to choose the one, or one of the two. Re-Advertising the position is only acceptable if NO ONE applies, but in Lebanon, re-advertising is a common practice if the applicant or applicants that apply are not "Liked" by one or more members of the board. They then use the  grace period to "Recruit" people they DO like or who will play their games. TWICE, this has been close neighbors of Bruce Baldwin and Jeannine Tonetti.  How is that ethical or moral? It isn't.

         Not only is this shameful practice a blatant display of Abuse of Power, it is also a cruel, slap-in-the-face to the original applicants. They might just as well come out and say that they don't like the person, at least it would be honest! As it is, it is insulting, embarrassing and  downright dirty cronyism. Worse still, is when they appoint a "crony" who not only has ZERO experience in the job they are being appointed to, but are also an open supporter of Communism. Chosen over an All-American person who has the laws and codes involved in the job, down PAT.  It's open discrimination and there is NO excuse for it. Yet the people tolerate it and when I object, look at me like I have three heads. Liberals. They know all about Ronald McDonald and WE know all about Ronald Reagan. WORLDS apart.

            My friend says the only way to FIX it is to vote the board-stackers out. Sure, in the most liberal town in the county?  Sadly, Libs have a "Thing" for the Berkshires, and we can call the outcome of elections MONTHS before the vote. My friend also lauded the accomplishments of the Czar. The Town Hall Meeting Room is completed, and the landfill issue is finally coming to an end. He didn't mention the many,many people and hours and years it took to lay the groundwork for these victories before Mike Benson was out of school. Still, I believe in giving credit where credit is due and I posted my very favorable opinion of the meeting room results and the fact that the Czar supports the 2nd Amendment, did I not? I always report the good as well as the bad, but sadly in Lebanon, the bad always outweighs the good. It's not MY fault that politicians are rarely honorable, so to my friend and all the others who say I'm too negative, don't shoot the messenger.  Go to the source of the problems.

           Speaking of local politics, this is a big year for Lebanon. Doug Clark has secured a very cushy new job with the City of Pittsfield and a LONG time ago,  his wife told him he can't run for office again.  He COULD unpleasantly surprise us and try to run again, but it's unlikely, Thank You Lord.  K.B Chittenden's term is also ending this year and I have no clue as to whether he will run again or not. I have no issue with K.B, he's a nice enough guy and an excellent father, which is no small thing. As a Councilman, he is a follower, never brave enough to think for himself or take a stand, and he misses WAY too many meetings.  In any case, we could do worse.

         The Czar IS running again, that is no secret. Since Steve McLaughlin decided to stay in the Assembly last year for one more term, the Czar was stuck here longer than he planned. NEXT year however, Steve will definitely be looking to move up, opening the Assembly seat for Benson. So keep in mind that whomever becomes the next Deputy Supervisor, will likely also be our next SUPERVISOR in 2014 if the Czar gets re-elected this year. . Something to think long and hard about.  We need a few strong Conservatives in local government to balance the liberalism , at least a LITTLE bit ! It's time to inject some HONOR into our town and that can never happen if we keep seeing the same old farts voted in again and again. You can't keep doing the same things and expect a different outcome.

         At the State level, we are seeing a few of the most corrupt being exposed at last. Hardly as many as SHOULD be exposed, but it's a start. The numbers will grow as the guilty throw their cronies under the bus. Toss 'em out and send Cuomo with them.  How LONG Cuomo will be in the Capitol is anyone's guess and he will NEVER see the presidency.  That ship sailed the day he signed the Safe Act. He has tipped his tyrannical hand and upstate New Yorkers have sunk their teeth into it. We will not soon forget his gangster governorship or the turncoats like Dean Skelos, Sheldon Silver, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand.  We will remember the David Marstons, the Doug Clarks, the Christopher Steadmans and the Kathy Murnanes.

            America is awakening, a little late, but not TOO late.  The Patriots are gathered all across the nation and especially in New York, Ground Zero.  By the way, I have severed all ties with Gun Rights Across America. As NY State Organizer for that National Pro-2A Group, my teams and I built a following of 9,000 regulars and a reach of 800,000 ! We held the biggest rallies in Albany's history. GRAA did NOTHING to assist NY despite the Safe Act and the battle we faced and still are facing. They took over management of all the state pages and began to censor posts that were not DIRECTLY related to the 2A. No other issues we are dealing with in America were allowed.  They had a huge problem with double-standards and I have NO patience with THAT! 

         Being fed-up with their behaviors, we began to prepare some months ago to move on, and we set up our own, NEW page and organization to continue the fight. When GRAA got wind of our pending defection, they banned us all from the page and took over.  LOL!! Unfortunately for THEM, they are Texans and no one in the NY Pro-Gun circles knows them, they know US.  Our followers are still that, and they have defected with us. When word got out, I received a call from the NY State Coordinator of NYR who asked me to step in as his Co-State Coordinator. I was honored to say yes. NYR, New York Revolution , is a terrific group of awesome people and like-thinkers. We all love our country and cherish our Constitutional Rights and intend to preserve them for our children and grandchildren.

         I am also still Columbia County Coordinator for "We the People" and the Columbia County plaintiffs in the "Message of Necessity" lawsuit .  So if you are so inclined, feel free to visit our pages on Facebook. OUR new page is: Madison's Militia" and the NYR page is listed as New York Revolution.  We are very united and active, but non-violent, so don't be concerned about that. If anyone throws the first stone, it will be the state government, not the Patriots. 

       Please, before you go to bed tonight, give some thought to what it would mean to lose our 2nd Amendment Rights. Remember the history of what always follows the disarmament of a people, and consider what would follow that in America. We are not immune any longer, which is why the forefathers gave us the Constitution. We MUST defend and retain those protections. It matters not if you are pro-gun or anti-gun, are you willing to lose the entire Bill of Rights that was won with the blood of generations of soldiers?  Many, many thousands of New Yorkers are not.

      An over-reaching, over-sized government was never intended to exist in America and if we don't push back now, all will be lost. Not in a decade, not in two decades, but within the next year or two. If you want to learn more, don't hesitate to ask someone you trust that knows what is really happening in America right now, or come have coffee with me anytime.  I bark, but I rarely bite!  LOL!  God Bless,  JJ

Let voters fire the bad guys



State government needs a revolution — a peaceful one, that is, to clean up corruption in Albany.

It seems like every week brings yet another allegation of corruption in state government of a public official disgracing his or her office and being derelict in duties.

With each new headline, we hear hollow promises from our state leaders that they will pass tough new laws to police themselves. Yet the cycle of scandal continues on and on.

Their plan always seems to be based on the same recycled press releases, whereby the elected officials remain the fox guarding the hen house. Instead of empowering the people, they empower themselves. New York's penchant for passing laws to put more power in the hands of governors and other elected officials to police themselves has proven to be ineffective in rooting out the bad apples.

Lawyers, indictments and investigations are hollow threats for some in what's been dubbed "Planet Albany." What these politicians really fear is getting voted out of office.

The very last words an elected official wants to hear from a constituent is "you're fired!"

It's time to take a page from what 19 other states have done and bringing more accountability to New York.

Let's empower the people, by enabling them to recall elected officials who are derelict in their duties. Let's give them the power to hold their elected officials accountable all the time. Let's give New Yorkers a recall revolution.

The truth is that when some elected officials see the word recall, they get wobbly in the knees. As a deterrent, if politicians fear losing their jobs from a recall election, then they may be more responsive to the needs of their constituents and more apt to uphold their oath of office.

Some would argue that there's no need for recall, because we already have elections every two to four years, depending on the state office. But why should our bosses — that is, our constituents — have to wait if enough of them believe their public servant is derelict enough to be tossed out now, and on Election Day?

Why should some of New York's rogues' gallery of disgraced politicians continue to roam the Capitol?

We've had enough of the corruption in Albany. We trust the voters of New York to help us police state government.

That's why we're joining the taxpayers of New York in calling for a recall revolution to empower them to police their elected officials.

Our recall bill grants voters, through a democratic process, the ability to gather signatures for a recall election to remove incompetent or crooked politicians from office.

If America's representative democracy is built on President Abraham Lincoln's vision "of the people, by the people and for the people," then we should put the power back into the hands of the people.

We've launched a "Recall Revolution" Facebook petition drive (tinyurl.com/recallrevolution) to bring recall legislation to a vote in the Legislature.

This is just part of a holistic approach to clean up corruption in New York; but it must start with giving power to the people to partner with us to take back our state government.

The voters of New York bring us into this world of public service, and they should be able to recall us if and when they feel we are derelict in our duties.

The authors are Republican state Assembly members representing the Capital Region.

BIG News!   This has been a MAJOR Concern, but now it looks like we are gaining ground!

BREAKING! TROOPERS MEET AND TALK NYSAFE

Other sources from within the rank and file of the NY State Police have come forward to give us hope that their union will publicly declare against NY "SAFE".

A secret meeting has been held and was attended by well over 100 NY State Troopers and union guys.

There was a lot of talk about the troopers finding this law unconstitutional, some... passionately speaking against it to wild ovations.

There is a growing movement among troopers to opt-out of contributions to the PBA's PAC fund, which has donated almost $50,000 to Andrew Cuomo.

Still no word on whether the union big shots will give the blessing to a survey of rank and file troopers re: NY "SAFE" and whether the results should be made public. Stay tuned.

America Needs a SHOWER !!!!  (with a lot of soap!)                        5-11-2013


           Holy Crap, where does it END?  Will the left continue to push and shove until blood is spilled? We have reached that point in this country, and it's SCARY!  Obama has succeeded in dividing this country in much the same way New Lebanon became divided during the last Supervisor election. There is a line in the sand, they have THEIR side and we have OURS.  It isn't right vs. Left, or Democrat vs. Republican.  It isn't even Libs vs, Conservatives anymore, not completely. What it has come down to is RIGHT vs. WRONG.  GOOD vs. EVIL. 

           The "Other" side claims to "Celebrate Diversity" yet they are only willing to accept differences that fit into their narrow little aisle of acceptable behaviors, such as Same-Sex marriage, Abortion, Cultism, Islam, Open Borders, Sexual Deviance, Anti-Americanism, Government Hand-Outs and Control, etc.,etc.  THEY are dedicated to FORCING every American to see through THEIR eyes, and that's "Tolerance" and "Diversity"?  When WE disagree, we are BIGOTS, or EXTREMISTS, and guilty of Hate Speech. At least WE are willing to respect THEIR right to choose, live and let live. THEY cannot and will not return the favor.

         They demonize US for loving God and our Country, for respecting traditional marriage and families, for supporting secure borders and deportation, and preferring to be independent and FREE.  They hate us for Defending the Constitution. How is that "Celebrating Diversity"?  What it is, is HYPOCRISY and the Liberal Double-Standard at its best.  Anyone who cannot see this is "Intellectually Challenged".  There, see the NICE way I said "STUPID"?

         Benghazi. Hillary and Obama deliberately refused assistance that could have PREVENTED, or at the very least minimized the attacks of 9-11-2012. WHY did they order the Troops to "Stand Down"? That too, is very clear if you bother to admit who is running this country. Chris Stevens did not deserve ANY of what he suffered. Yet he was NOT in Libya for any GOOD reason. He was there to over-see the delivery of weapons that Obama had sent there to the Muslim Brotherhood. He HAD to die. Sending help might have saved Stevens, and had he lived, Stevens MIGHT have talked. Assistance was deliberately withheld until it was certain that he was dead. Dead men tell no tales.

         While these men were in Benghazi being SLAUGHTERED, and screaming for help. Obama went to BED!  HE WENT TO BED!  STILL think he's the Golden Boy? He is scum, plain and simple. The Dems can whine and deny all they want and point fingers at the Whistle-Blowers till the cows come home and it will not change the FACTS in this case. Obama and Hillary Clinton MURDERED those men. It is NOT Hillary's first murder and if we don't get rid of her NOW, it won't be her last. All of Obama's Constitutional Violations to date, over 60 of them, have gone un-punished. He has been SO protected by the media, that the media is now being referred to as "Obama's Condom".  Crude, but accurate.

           Benghazi is the straw that MUST break the Camel-Rider's Back. This administration is beyond tyrannical, it is deadly.  These evil people must go, and not in 2016, NOW.  They must be removed from our government and charged with the felonies they are guilty of, just as you  or I would be, and just as a REPUBLICAN administration would have already BEEN.  Benghazi is but ONE of the horrible issues that many Americans have not taken seriously enough, not looked at closely enough and not understood the IMPLICATIONS of. 

     There is FEMA, DHS, Immigration, the Islamic Influx, the alliances with Muslim Extremists,Attacks on our Constitutional Rights and Freedoms, the weakening of our military, the militarizing of our police departments, Agenda 21, Excessive Tax Burdens, the Criminalization of Speech, the persecution of Christians and Patriots, Political Correctness, Election Fraud, Indoctrination of our children in the public schools, Fast and Furious, Disrespect for Israel, Obamacare, and NOW, the IRS admittedly targeting groups and individuals with ties to the Tea Party and/or Patriotic Organizations.  They go on the air yesterday and APOLOGIZE?  NO! We don't want an apology, we want those responsible FIRED and CHARGED!

      We will not accept ANY violations of the Constitution and we demand removal of any politician who even THINKS about doing so! Listening Cuomo?  We will NOT COMPLY.  WHY would the people obey un-Constitutional Laws when the so-called "Leaders" don't obey the Constitutional ones?

        Here is what is wrong in America.  The citizenry has allowed itself to be brain-washed into believing that the Government is in control. LOL! Have you ever seen ANYTHING so OUT of control? You have been fooled and subliminally convinced that YOU have no choices. WRONG!  WE have the power, the rights and the protections and it is WE the People who decide what the government can and cannot DO.  Have you all forgotten that?  OUR rights and powers far outweigh those of any government, and any president. We CAN remove them, we CAN stop this snowball from rolling downhill.  It is not only our right, it is our DUTY.

      My son had his taxes done and has been waiting a long time for his federal check to arrive. Early this week, he received a letter from the IRS. They told him that they needed "more information" to ensure his identity. He was directed to a website where he was to complete a questionnaire.  Some of the questions on this form were outright alarming. One of which was , "Where and when did you last reside with Joanna Smith"? Ummm, WHAT?  WHO calls me Joanna Smith?  Nobody.  BIG RED FLAG.  Gee, would this have anything to do with me being the NYS Organizer for Gun Rights, an active Christian and a vocal Constitutionalist?  Hmmmm. 

      PAY ATTENTION! Ask QUESTIONS and do NOT trust the government. READ the U.S Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the NY State Constitution while you're at it, it will show you all the laws CUOMO has violated!  Maybe you're an older person and don't care what happens to America in the months and years to come.  Okay, but what about your kids and their kids? What about the people you knew that died for our freedoms? What about your neighbor whose son or daughter just went to Afghanistan? What about the men who were murdered in Benghazi? You must care about SOMETHING? Every voice is vital, every hand precious. Stand UP and say " NO MORE ".


                 On a lighter note, I want to thank Gail Heinsohn for her article about the New Lebanon Sidewalk project. Doug Clark LIED to you folks at the last meeting on this issue. Wow, BIG surprise. This sidewalk that no one wants or needs, will RAISE YOUR TAXES, and don't let Dougy fool you. NO sidewalk will bring business to this town, nor should a sidewalk be installed unless and until business DOES come and make it necessary. The cart before the horse. Part of Benson's "Shovel-Ready" campaign promise. GEEZ, give me a break.  We need a market and a pharmacy, not a sidewalk to nowhere.  NOT public water, not a Big Box store. We want a peaceful little town with its rural flavor preserved. We want that eyesore at Rt. 20 and Lover's Lane CLEANED UP along with several other messes on our main drag.

              By the way, the Public Hearing in Stephentown for the Moto-X Track is being held on the SAME night at the SAME time as our Town Board Meeting!  Isn't THAT interesting??  I hope many of you will go to Stephentown and support Howard Commander as I have business here that night. I wish I could do both, but they are only two of the FIVE meetings I have to attend this week.  I find myself having to choose which ones to accept and which to turn down more and more often lately. This is going to be a busy summer.

          Don't forget the sidewalk hearing on Monday night at the High School. Also, on Thursday night, Chatham will be voting on their opposition to the NY Safe Act, which Lebanon needs to do NEXT month! Clermont and Kinderhook have done theirs.

    On Wednesday night at 6 p.m, there will be a fundraiser for the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association at the Scotia/Glenville Fish and Game Club, called Guan Ho Ha Club. Food available, Jim Tedisco will be speaking, and items will be raffled, including a brand-new Shotgun from Guns Inc. in Schodack, the world's BEST Gun Store! This is to raise funds for the very costly lawsuit against Cuomo and his minions for violating the Constitutional Rights of the Law-Abiding Gun Owners of NY.  One of THREE major suits and the most serious one of the three.

      Don't forget to visit our brand-new page on Facebook; "Madison's Militia".  For those down-county, check out "New York Revolution" as well.  No More "Gun Rights Across America", they are of NO use to NY. Get involved.  As Ron Paul said, "Let us not say that we did nothing".

                        God Bless!  JJ

Benghazi and the Shameful Conduct of our Government

The Resistance Movement is about more than an advocacy for the Bill of Rights . It is an assertion that we, as American citizens, have rights. We demand a government bound by Constitutional law, administered by people who have sworn upon their honor to obey these laws. We demand a government accountable to the people.
While this was the very basis for the forming of our great Republic, the notion we hold, that government is accountable to we, the people, somehow makes us “right-wingers” unreasonable to many on the left. We must reject such scorn and derision; we are patriots.
That is why the Benghazi hearing was so troubling. Our fight is not merely against individual lawmakers who advocate for unconstitutional laws; our fight is against a government who feels bound by nothing, a government who operates according to their own agenda and not in the interests of the American people.
The Benghazi hearing on Wednesday was nauseating. While the media and many assorted Democrats fought to portray the hearing as some sort of right-wing witch-hunt, the truth is that the hearing shined a light on a scandal of tremendous proportions that left four Americans dead and a government that was more interested in protecting a narrative than the lives of American soldiers and diplomats.
What makes this all the more shameful and embarrassing is that eight months later, the terrorists are walking around freely, the Obama Administration and the State Department have engaged in numerous cover-ups and instances of witness intimidation and any efforts by anyone pursuing the truth is promptly met by the media and the Democrats with an incredulous, “Benghazi? Jeez, are we still on that?!”
On a side note, imagine for a moment if any of derelictions of duty or obvious cover-ups had occurred when George W. Bush was president. Would the media find the Benghazi scandal newsworthy then? Would Hillary Clinton question, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
No; the left would demand answers and you know what? I would be right there beside them, demanding answers, too. Why? Because Americans are dead at the hands of terrorists due to egregious lapses in security coupled with a sociopathic unwillingness to attempt a rescue operation.
Admittedly, the Resistance Movement focuses much of our efforts on the preservation of our Constitutional rights. But let’s not delude ourselves: we can never be free if we are saddled with a government that feels that they are above the law and not obliged to answer to the American people.

Paul: Benghazi Failure Should Keep Hillary From 'Ever Holding Office'

Image: Paul: Benghazi Failure Should Keep Hillary From 'Ever Holding Office'
Saturday, 11 May 2013 07:40 AM
By Matthew Auerbach

Speaking at an event hosted by the Iowa Federation of Republican Women Friday, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said that Hilary Clinton’s alleged failure to prevent the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi should “preclude” her from ever again holding public office, Politico reports.

Paul says he has not yet decided whether he will be a presidential candidate in 2016, but he appeared to be in full campaign mode during his two stops in this first-in-the-nation caucus state.

Speaking to a small group of voters at a household event sponsored by the Iowa Federation of Republican Women, Paul drove home his point that Clinton’s mishandling of the Benghazi situation should disqualify her from serving the American people.


“I think it precludes Hillary Clinton from ever holding office,” Paul said.

“I think her mistakes were of such significance that she should never again be in that position, to make those decisions.”

While Clinton has also remained mum on her plans for 2016, recent public opinion polls have shown her to be of the best-liked politicians in the country and a strong favorite for the Democratic Party’s 2016 nomination.

Paul began his assault on Clinton earlier in the day, telling reporters at a press conference she was “absolutely responsible” for the inadequate security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi.

“She was in charge of the State Department. She was asked repeatedly for increased security for Benghazi
,” Paul said.

“I fault her absolutely for not reading the cables.

Part of being in charge is triaging what comes to your desk and what doesn’t come to your desk. And to say that Libya wasn’t important enough for her to be reading the cables from the ambassador asking for more security, I think was inexcusable.”

Without secrecy, donations stop for NY Cuomo group

Originally published: May 10, 2013 4:14 PM
Updated: May 10, 2013 6:24 PM
By The Associated Press  MICHAEL GORMLEY (Associated Press)
ALBANY, N.Y. - (AP) -- Donations for a lobbying group that promotes Gov. Andrew Cuomo's policies dropped from $17 million to zero after the state ethics board began requiring that donors be named, a 2012 federal tax filing provided Friday to The Associated Press shows.
The business-based Committee to Save New York has funded statewide TV ad blitzes boosting Cuomo's popularity and has lobbied the Legislature and public to support his proposals. The committee spent millions spinning Cuomo's image, without requiring the Democrat to touch his own massive campaign account, whose donors must be identified.
The tax record shows the Committee to Save New York received $17.4 million in payments in 2011 when contributors were anonymous and the group received $1.15 million in January of 2012, including a $600,000 payment by one unidentified person.
But the record shows no donations coming in after July 2012, when the ethics board began requiring that donors be identified, and through the end of 2012. The Committee to Save New York ended that year with $2.1 million.
Cuomo had no comment Friday on donations to the group. His aides have said they coordinate efforts with the Committee to Save New York.
A 2011 ethics and lobbying law required that donors to powerful lobbying be identified so the public would know what groups or individuals are trying to influence public sentiment and elected officials.
But it was up to the state Joint Commission on Public Ethics, headed at the time by many of Cuomo's appointees and former staffers, to determine when those disclosures would begin.
The commission decided not to make the requirement retroactive, instead setting the start clock at July 2012.
According to the tax filing, the Committee to Save New York's continuing purposes include promoting "responsible gaming." The New York Times reported that the New York Gaming Association acknowledged the group contributed $2 million to the committee more than a year ago, as Cuomo was pushing for more casino gambling.
The tax record also shows committee director Steven Spinola was paid $861,887 in 2012.
But committee spokesman Michael McKeon said that figure reflects Spinola's salary at The Real Estate Board of New York, which has members associated with the committee. McKeon said Spinola isn't paid by the committee, but tax rules required the compensation from The Real Estate Board of New York be listed. The board represents New York City real estate developers.
In addition, the tax record shows that in 2012 the committee paid more than $4 million for "media/radio" to ASGK Public Strategies, a Chicago-based public relations firm founded by David Axelrod, former aide to President Bill Clinton. Axelrod is no longer with the firm. Cuomo also worked in the Clinton administration.
Another $139,652 went to Mercury Public Affairs, a Manhattan public relations firm, where McKeon works. And the committee donated $10,000 to the Coalition for New York's Future, another lobbying group based in Manhattan.

Obama’s IRS Apologizes for Targeting Tea Party — and It’s Still Bush’s Fault

Posted on May 10, 2013 by Tad Cronn

The popular saying is that lightning never strikes the same place twice. Science has shown that it’s quite the opposite, that places that have been struck tend to attract lightning bolts repeatedly.
The Obama Administration appears to be one of those places. Struck on Friday not only by an ABC report that shows conclusively that the Administration knew from the beginning of al-Qaida involvement in the Benghazi attacks, it then received a follow-up bolt from the BBC, whose North America Editor Mark Mardell publicly acknowledged that he now believes there has been an administration coverup.
Then, just to keep liberals hopping, came another bolt from a completely unexpected direction.
The IRS, out of the blue, apologized for targeting the Tea Party and other conservative groups applying for nonprofit status prior to last year’s election.
At the time the IRS harassment was going on, the Administration was its usual sweetness and innocent denials, even as conservative groups across the country were facing illegal demands from the IRS, such as being ordered to provide membership lists, names of speakers at meetings and notes about their topics.
Obama even made jokes publicly about using the IRS to target political enemies.
Lois Lerner, head of the IRS division that oversees nonprofit groups, said the IRS targeted dozens of groups whose names included the words “Tea Party” or “Patriots” for additional investigation.
ads not by this site
“That was absolutely incorrect,” she said during a conference sponsored by the American Bar Association. “It was insensitive and it was inappropriate. That’s not how we go about selecting cases for further review. … The IRS would like to apologize for that.”
White House spokesman Jay Carney agreed that it was improper of the IRS to target conservative groups but said he didn’t know when the White House found out the Tea Party was being targeted.
My guess would be the day before the policy took effect.
But liberals are nothing if not clever creatures, being similar to rats in that regard. According to Lerner, the policy was begun by low-level IRS agents in Cincinnati led by IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, who told a House Ways and Means Subcommittee in March 2012 that there was no political targeting. Shulman is a  — wait for it — George Bush appointee.
So even when the IRS apologizes for illegally targeting Barack Obama’s political enemies in an election year for bureaucratic harassment, it’s still Bush’s fault. After all, it’s not like Obama’s in charge of his own Executive Branch, right?
Like I said, clever.
House Speaker John Boehner reacted to the IRS announcement: “The admission by the Obama administration that the Internal Revenue Service targeted political opponents echoes some of the most shameful abuses of government power in 20th century American history.”
Can’t argue with that. But remember it’s all Bush’s fault.

Troopers and Town Meeting                                           5-13-2013


           Let's begin with the NY State Police. I have always been supportive of all Law Enforcement until recent years.  Since the illegal passage of the NY Safe Act, I have gained even MORE respect for the Sheriffs and Deputies in NY State who chose to Honor their Oaths and openly state that they believe the Safe Act to be unconstitutional and useless.  My first job in the field was as a Deputy Sheriff and I learned very quickly that there is usually very little love between the Deputies and State Troopers, for many reasons.  To some extent, I understood the animosity and found many Troopers to be obnoxious and elitist and seriously lacking in the people skills so necessary to the job.

        As I moved on to other areas of Law Enforcement, I didn't really give Troopers much thought one way or the other.  Then things in Lebanon changed, and the long-time Troopers who lived nearby and knew everyone, began to retire and our local barracks became a training center for the new Troopers fresh out of the academy. No longer did we get to know them or they to know US, because they were here one day and gone the next. This was a problem, as there were no community relations built .  The "new" breed of Troopers are for the most part, a cold bunch, and the elitist attitude has continued and has proven detrimental to residents.

       When the Safe Act passed in the middle of the night, Troopers were mum. No statement was forthcoming, no comments made and no Stand taken. As we worked with the 62 NY Sheriffs and made steady and solid progress, we kept waiting for the NYSP to make a decision. Some people condemned them right from the start because they are "State Employees" and would stay loyal to Cuomo. Others, myself included, understood their dilemma. Their union was NOT going to stand against the governor and neither would the upper-echelon, as they were all essentially in Cuomo's pocket.  We talked to a lot of the road Troopers, and every one said they hated the Safe Act but they were stuck between a rock and hard place. I get it, the job pays an excellent salary, has MANY perks, great retirement and benefits, etc.

      In today's economy, no one can take a chance at losing a great job like that.  So we felt their pain, but we also believed that it would not be long before the Pro-2A Troopers took a stand and opposed the law.  They did not.  Our sympathy for their situation began to wane, and as we started seeing Safe Act related arrests, it dissolved completely. What little hope we had that the NYSP would honor their oaths, was gone and we began to see them as Cuomo's Private Army. I continued to talk to those I ran into or knew, and they stated that they , as state employees, work for Cuomo. I reminded them that they in fact do NOT work for Cuomo, but for the People of NY State. CUOMO is an employee of the People of NY State!  WE pay them and fund their insurance, benefits, retirement, uniforms and the rest of it, not Andrew Cuomo.

        It never sunk in though. In their minds, they are indeed, Cuomo's Army. Last week, 100 troopers met with their union reps to discuss the Safe Act and their alleged opposition to it.  I have no way of knowing what went on in that meeting or how it ended, but apparently the Union won, whether through bribery, threats or both, we will never know.  THIS week, a man from Dutchess County was stopped by New Lebanon Troopers for having a license plate light out. For me, that's a ridiculous reason to stop anyone, but I'm not a green trooper. Turns out that driver had a suspended license, and for that, he should pay the price, no argument there.  However, he also happened to be a licensed pistol-owner and the pistol was in the vehicle. All legal.

        Until the troopers decided to count the number of bullets in the pistol's magazine and found 9 instead of the "allowed" 7.   So the man was also charged with a violation of the unconstitutional Safe Act.  I am not afraid to say that EVERY Trooper I have talked with, stated that they would NEVER ask how many bullets a legal carrier had in their magazine and they would NEVER count them! It was, they said, the ONE way they could oppose the Safe Act.  Apparently, they kept THAT promise in the same way they honor their oaths.  They DON'T.

         Experience has shown me that Troopers LOVE revenge. They will do whatever it takes to strike back at anyone who DARES to challenge or oppose them, wrong or right. Now please keep in mind that this is not true of 100% of Troopers, there are plenty of decent men and women among the ranks, but it IS true of the majority, especially the younger ones. That being said, the arrest in Lebanon has struck a chord that has reverberated across the state.  Anyone who might have felt some sympathy for the Troopers before, do not any longer. Gun Owners in this state are now LIVID. The push is now on for the Troopers to be returned to the Thruway where they belong. This was their original purpose and assignment, and it should be again.

       Troopers have proven that they cannot relate well with locals and most locals resent them and prefer the Sheriff's departments.  Troopers belong on the interstates, chasing speeders, drug-runners and illegals. So despite the fact that we, the Pro-2A people of NY will undoubtedly be attacked for our actions, we have decided to take them anyway.  Months ago, we told the State Police that if they honored their Oaths and opposed the Safe Act, we would stand with them against their union and superiors. WE, their employers, would protect their jobs. We are good people of strong character and we would have kept that promise to the letter. Now, all bets are off.

        From this day forward, anytime ANY of us requires police assistance of any kind and call 911, we will make a point to tell the dispatcher to NOT send the State Police, only the Sheriffs or locals. If the Troopers DO respond, they will be asked to leave and we will wait for the Sheriffs. You need to understand, that these Troopers are adults of reasonable intelligence, or they could not have graduated the academy. They KNOW, that they are great in numbers, and have the option and the power to unite in opposition to the Safe Act, leaving the union and superiors NO choice but to support their decision. They are NOT stuck, they are NOT Cuomo's flunkies, they are strong,American Law Enforcement officers who all took an oath to oppose unconstitutional laws and tyranny. They have violated that oath and destroyed our trust.

        We are non-violent people and will never target a police officer of any kind for any reason. However, we WILL not sit still for this betrayal by those whom we pay to protect us. This will NOT go away. Until and Unless the Troopers man-up and do the right thing, we want NOTHING to do with them and will work diligently to see them put back on the thruway and taken OUT of our neighborhoods. They have opted to become a militarized group of government-controlled robots, and THAT is too perilous to accept.

     Public Hearing on Sidewalk Project

           About 45 or 50 in attendance. It was hard to keep an accurate count, as people came in and out. Doug Clark was conspicuously absent as was K.B, as usual.  It came down to the majority wanting a referendum on the project. Matt Larabee openly agreed while Creighton Manning employees kept up the sales pitch. There were of course, the few Liberals for whom money is no object, that stated their full support for the sidewalks. The VAST majority however, was strongly against the project.  Lebanon taxes are above and beyond what most of us can manage NOW. Sidewalks and public water and sewers would make this exactly what the liberals WANT it to be, a town for the rich only. The NY version of Stockbridge, where only the wealthy and famous can afford to dwell.

       NOT gonna happen.  Sidewalks are NOT gonna happen. This is an old rural town, and we want to keep it that way. Anyone who wants the snobby atmosphere of Massachusetts, should GO there. Mr. Pandy was awesome tonight, stating that the officials need to consider the wishes of the PEOPLE for a change!  The Obnoxious Wanna-Be Award of the night goes to Monte Wasch, again. I knew the minute he signed up to speak, that anything he had to say would infuriate me. HE infuriates me. He is such a little Socialist. He actually said that we have no right to impose our opinions on the board as we ELECTED them to do the job and until we vote them out, we essentially need to shut up and get out of their way!!! 

      First of all, I personally didn't vote for ANY of them and with the exception of Matt, never WOULD. As far as I am concerned, Matt is the only one with ANY integrity, honesty or fairness. ALL the others need to take it down the road a.s.a.p. Monte the anti-American, used California as an example of "excessive" referendums and said that their state is a disaster. Yes, it is! Not because of referendums, but because of LIBERALS and SICKOS that think like HE does!  In a nutshell, we WILL be petitioning for a referendum to stop this project. It WILL be stopped.

      Tomorrow night is the regular Town Board meeting and I have an idea that it will be a lively one.  I'm actually hoping that it will be sparsely attended and that more folks will go to Stephentown and support the Speedway. If you are a race fan or got your first job from Howard, you should be there!  Remember, no Speedway, no Lebanon. Bottom line.

       I announced to Monte tonight after he finished his rhetoric, that it is, "WE THE PEOPLE".  Much like the time he told me that America is not and never was a Christian Country. Like I've said a thousand times, never mistake education for intelligence.

N.Y. Man Arrested for Gun Violation in NY — His Offense? Two Extra Bullets

Gregory Dean, Jr. was pulled over in New Lebanon, N.Y., Sunday for a light on his license plate being burnt out. But what began as a simple traffic stop ended up with Dean being arrested over two bullets in his registered firearm, which put him in violation of the state’s new law, the Journal News reported.

Last month, a provision in New York’s strict gun control laws went into effect, making it illegal to have more than seven rounds in a magazine unless said firearm was being used at a range or in a competition.

The state troopers saw a .40-caliber pistol on Dean’s passenger side when they approached his window. Although it was lawfully possessed by Dean, they discovered nine bullets within the magazine, putting him two bullets over the seven-bullet max set by the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act.

Dean was arrested for this violation and charged with unlawful possession for the number of bullets in the ammunition feeding device and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, according to the Journal News. Both are misdemeanor charges that went along with infractions he received regarding the light outage on his vehicle as well.

Dean was released without bail and has a court date for later this month.

Notice that none of the media has named the arresting Troopers??

Inhofe: Obama, Benghazi, and the ‘I-word’

by The Blog on May 13, 2013    
“I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment,” said Representative Steve Stockman in regards to Barack Obama’s January 16 executive actions against the Second Amendment.
Fast-forward.
On Friday, May 10, Senator James Inhofe told radio host Rusty Humphries that “People may be starting to use the I-word before too long.” The Oklahoma Senator believes the national outrage over the Administration’s gross mishandling of the Benghazi terror attack will lead more and more to start calling for the impeachment of Barack Obama.
Sen. Inhofe said, “This is something that could last until after the 2014 elections. This is not a short story. … This is clearly an orchestrated cover-up.”
As of this post, Conservative Action Alerts has sent just under 9,000 petitions to lawmakers — and many thousands of faxes — on behalf of thousands of signers who have been calling for the impeachment of Barack Obama since the first month of this year.

Anyone Seen My Country ??                                       5-16-2013



        I am not even going to THINK about our local, Town Government tonight. The next three weeks will be interesting here at home and I CAN wait. At the moment, I am  dizzy with trying to sort through all the White House scandals. I got home last night about 10 p.m after attending a fundraiser in Glenville for the NYSRPA Lawsuit against the Gangster Governor. 

        The first piece of news I received was about the EPA's deliberate bias against Conservative-owned companies. Very much like the IRS Scandal that also broke this week. Seems the EPA assists "GREEN" business, liberal-owned, in getting grants, permits and financial aid while over-looking violations and unmet requirements. Conservative business of course, received the opposite treatment and includes harassment and targeting.

        Around midnight. my cell phone rang to tell me the third scandal of the week had just broken. Obama and Eric Holder had been caught wire-tapping CONGRESS! They had bugs planted in the cloakroom, which is NOT a room where you hang your hat and coat, but a "lounge" area for Congressmen and women to rest, nap, chat, have coffee, whatever. How INSANE can this administration GET ?!?!  One would think they had reached the nadir of evil, but NO, they keep digging the hole deeper.

         Let's see; 1) Fast & Furious:  still no satisfactory answers and NO ONE held accountable even though we KNOW who the guilty are.

                         2)  Benghazi: no explanation necessary except to say that Hillary Clinton leaves a trail of dead bodies everywhere she goes and if you want dates and details, feel free to ask and I will provide them to you.

                         3) The IRS: Obama is playing the outraged leader on this one and claiming innocence again, and I have a ski resort for sale in Miami. Any takers?

                         4) The AP:  Aah, this is good!  Not ONLY did the CIA seize items from the AP offices, but also from the private homes of AP journalists! The AP had been asked by the CIA to "sit" on a story for FIVE days. Al Qaeda had planned another "underwear" bombing on an American passenger flight, and the CIA was onto it. It would never happen, being foiled before it began, and KUDOS to those who prevented what could have been another tragedy!  However, since the plan was known to the CIA, there was no reason for continued secrecy and no danger after the first several days.  Still citing "National Security", the CIA requested that the AP continue to hold the story back for an extra day, which would mean Tuesday.

                  The AP refused and broke the story on Monday in accord with their original agreement. This apparently rained on Obama's parade and he was TICKED! The Teflon Muslim wanted to break the story first and take credit for the foiled plot while basking in undeserved glory, as he did after the killing of Bin Laden. AP stole his thunder and the next day, CIA agents in a Police-State action, stormed their homes and offices and seized their private files. An Obama Temper-Tantrum of the HIGHLY Illegal kind.  This is what Tyrants DO.

                          5) Today.  Father Time has seen his last New Year's Eve. Sheldon Silver has been officially outed for having paid six-figures to gag victims of the sexual abuses of Vito Lopez. Cuomo is screaming for Lopez to be kicked to the curb, but has said NOTHING about Silver's complicity. Dontcha LOVE the way Cuomo keeps saying he will not tolerate corruption, yet he is the MOST corrupt of them ALL?  Nor does he hold his cronie's feet to the fire.  I say, "Bye-Bye Shelly!".

       The Dems are dropping like flies from NYC to Washington and I could name more than a few Republicans that need to go WITH them!

                                ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

          Another victory for Liberty tonight! The Town of Chatham voted to oppose the Safe Act ! Columbia County is on a roll. I attended with the NYR Team and on behalf of Madison's, and I couldn't help but notice an eerie similarity between this meeting and the public hearing in Stephentown on Tuesday night.  Libs stick out like the sore thumbs they are, and I can walk into a room full of strangers and pick out every liberal on sight. All the women have the same hairdresser and shop at the same clothing stores. I think they take lessons together on how to keep nasty expressions on their faces, they always look like they smell a dead body.

        ALL of them, male or female, young or old, are 100% self-absorbed and clueless. They care NOTHING about the Constitution or their responsibility to defend it. Yet they enjoy the liberties and protections it affords them.  For some reason known only to them, they seem to believe that all the big red flags are figments of the Conservative imagination and that all is well in the world. I guess in Liberal La-La Land, it IS. 

      SEVERAL of them actually said that the Chatham Board should remain neutral on the Safe Act as they have enough to do, like work on a budget! So, their apparently very late budget trumps the Constitution? Do these people live in a bubble?  They made it VERY clear that they resented non-residents attending and having something to say. They failed to admit how many of them are city-transplants as was obvious to ME!  I told them that is not a matter of who lives where, it is an AMERICAN issue that affects us ALL and it is the duty of everyone to stand for our freedoms.

     One chick with purple hair made her liberal non-argument, then spent the rest of the meeting reading a book! She felt the need to admonish the man seated next to me for making comments under his breath, stating that he was being disrespectful to the speakers. LOL! So it was rude of him to comment on the speaker's words, but it wasn't RUDE and DISRESPECTFUL for her to have her say then IGNORE what everyone else had to say?  I asked her if she had come to read a book or learn something.

      No matter, we WON. Three to two. Chatham has now joined Kinderhook and Clermont in opposing the NY Safe Act !  Let's hope Lebanon is next.  BY the way, the Troopers who made the first Safe Act arrest for number of bullets in a magazine here in Lebanon this week are: Troopers  Matthew Radowitz and Ian Jackson.  Oath Breakers! They will be formally introduced to the Oath KEEPERS next week.  That's a story for another day.

      So if you can sleep after reading all this, good for you. If you can continue to do nothing after reading all this, I hope you never have a good night's sleep again. You do not deserve it.       JJ

Homeowner's son fights off home invaders, KHOU, Houston, Texas, 05/14/13

Posted on May 15, 2013
 
A trio of home invaders entered a house in Houston, Texas, forced the homeowner’s son into a closet and ransacked the house. While the criminals were searching for valuables, the son left the closet, retrieved a gun and fired on the intruders, striking one in the leg and neck and causing all to flee. The wounded criminal only made it to a nearby home before collapsing, at which point neighbor Craig Gaddis discovered him and called the police.
Following the incident, Gaddis showed support for the young man who was forced to defend himself, telling local media “The owner, thank God for rights, he shot one of ‘em.” Gaddis also addressed the criminal adding, “He got what he deserved… You want to come over here and rob houses? Those of us who carry guns in our houses, they are there for one reason – to keep you people out.” (KHOU, Houston, Texas, 05/14/13)

A "Sideshow"?
Obama is calling Benghazi a “sideshow.” Dead Americans and an attack on our consulate on September 11, 2012 is a “sideshow“? On that alone, he shows how unqualified, incompetent, dangerous and unconcerned he is/was with American lives and national security — not to mention that he has, yet again, been exposed as a vicious, bold-faced liar.
Dck Cheney said on Hannity: “I think it’s one of the worst incidents frankly that I can recall in my career.” He said that officials would not allow Americans to know the truth about the attack because it would challenge the basis for President Obama’s re-election campaign. “If they told the truth about Benghazi — that it was a terrorist attack by an al-Qaida affiliated group — it would destroy the false image of competence that was the basis of his campaign for re-election,” Cheney insisted. “Well they lied.”
I can’t believe that CNN broke this. I wonder how long Tapper will last there, desecrating the holiest of O-liest.

In 2010 Democrat Senator Dick Durbin (the #2 Democrat in the Senate, Harry Reid's right-hand man) called on the IRS to begin an investigation into conservative 501c4 groups.  Democrats were concerned about potential losses in the upcoming 2010 Midterm election and Durbin seems to have called on the IRS to intimidate or silence conservative groups.
Please read through all of the misdeeds by liberal Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, and if you agree with us that it's time for Durbin to be voted out of the Senate, then support our campaign to Defeat Dick Durbin.
IRS ATTACKS ON CONSERVATIVES:  It was Senator Dick Durbin who formerly called on the IRS to investigate conservatives. 
Durbin even brags about his call for the IRS to take action against conservatives on his official Senate website.  Here's a screen grab we took from his official Senate website:

The First Big Step Toward Obama’s Impeachment

Impeach Obama SC The First Big Step Toward Obamas Impeachment

Over the last few days, I’ve heard the word “impeachment” from more of my sources on Capitol Hill than in the last six years combined.

One member of Congress told me to look at the Richard M. Nixon articles of impeachment and just change the name to Barack Obama.

That member believes that many of the arguments about the Watergate cover-up apply to the current Benghazi cover-up scandal, the IRS Tea Party scandal, and the AP telephone records scandal.

Here’s how article one against Nixon laid out the charges:

  • making false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States
  • withholding relevant and material evidence or information from lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States

Or how about this one:

  • making or causing to be made false or misleading public statements for the purpose of deceiving the people of the United States into believing that a thorough and complete investigation had been conducted with respect to allegations of misconduct on the part of personnel of the executive branch of the United States

Seems to me all of these charges would apply to Obama’s situation, yet they are direct quotes from the articles condemning Tricky Dick.

It’s too early to say if Barack Obama will be impeached. But mark my words… before the first day of summer, at least one member of Congress will introduce articles of impeachment accusing Barack Obama of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Just in the last week, the public statements about potential impeachment have been astounding. Former Governor Mike Huckabee said, “I believe that before it’s all over, this president will not fill out his full term… I remind you, as bad as Watergate was, because it broke the trust between the president and the people, no one died. This is more serious because four Americans did in fact die.”

I know Mike personally, and he‘s not prone to hyperbole and over-the-top statements.

Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma said Benghazi is the “most egregious cover-up in American history… People may be starting to use the I-word before too long.”

Chairman of the Government Reform and Oversight Committee, Congressman Darrell Issa, said of Benghazi: “This is a failure. We need to be investigating.”

When the Salt Lake Tribune asked Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah about impeachment, he said, “It’s certainly a possibility.”

Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas started the year talking about impeachment. As the White House prepared gun control proposals, Obama announced he would carry out a lot of his ideas through executive orders. Stockman, a strong defender of the Constitution, responded to Obama’s comments by saying:

I will consider speaking with my colleagues and filing articles of impeachment… Impeachment is not something to be taken lightly. It is a grave and serious undertaking that should only be initiated in a sober and serious manner. It should be reserved only for most egregious of trespasses by the president. I would consider using executive orders to engage in attacks on a constitutionally-protected right and violating his sworn oath of office to be such a trespass.

Stockman continued, “The president cannot issue executive orders depriving the people of full access to an enumerated constitutional right. I do not think it will come to that. The president is not an absolute ruler, and his actions and orders can be checked and balanced by the Congress and the courts – if the Congress is willing.”

Rep. Louie Gohmert, also of Texas, told NewsMax at the same time that Obama has “already abused the law enough times that it’s just been staggering… It’s not a president who steps up and says: ‘You know what? Previous Congresses have passed the law — and it’s been signed into law, and I disagree with it, so I’m just going to create new law — and as I speak, so shall it be,’” Gohmert concluded.

While these are just a few voices, I believe the chorus for impeachment will grow in the weeks ahead. Obama has made a series of highly questionable mistakes, and he refuses to take responsibility for the problems. Expect to hear much more about these scandals before the long, hot summer is over.

 No More "NICE"                                          5-21-2013


       See that banner at the top of this page? It's a Common-Sense warning from someone who "knows" something that not everyone else knows.  All of our lives, we hear and read warnings of all kinds and levels. They are on the products we buy, the food we eat, the roads we travel, and we have certainly all heard our share of warnings from our parents!  We are not GOOD at heeding most of them. I rip ALL the tags off my pillows!  LOL!  Warnings can be vital in many cases, for instance the horrible events in Oklahoma this week. Many lives were saved as a result of early warnings and good preparation.

      Still, some warnings are senseless and unfounded. I had a childhood friend whose mom told her every day of the winter, to NOT sit on the cold ground or she would get "Piles".  When my son was born, the old farm wives told me never to tickle his feet because it would cause him to stutter.  There are good warnings and silly warnings, but don't they all deserve at least a moment's consideration, just in case?

       We have talked a lot about Conspiracy Theories here, and there are a LOT of them out there. Some can be quickly dismissed as just that, while others warrant a little looking into. I am distrustful of most people, most of the time, and I can usually peg a nutcase right off the bat. People who believe in life on other planets and wear tinfoil hats are nuts. People who attempt to expose secret doings in our government? Not so much.  After the past week of White House scandals. even the most left of liberals, Piers Morgan, Chris Matthews and Jon Stewart ALL admitted that the so-called government Conspiracy Theorists had been proven right.  Our government is up to NO good and they ARE the liars and tyrants we have been trying to tell them they are.

       Wake-Up Call.  When Liberal Democrats admit they were WRONG, you KNOW there is conspiracy afoot.  The DHS purchases of many millions of rounds of ammunition is not a "Theory", it is fact.  What the IRS and Justice Departments have just been exposed for doing, were not "Theories", they were FACT.  Congress was wiretapped, drones are being made available to police agencies in this country, the AP was assaulted by SWAT Teams and records seized, and the men who died in Benghazi were deliberately eliminated, whether you choose to believe it or not. Our own government is at the bottom of it ALL, and the Truth is coming into the open at last.

      So, if all these things are true, why not FEMA Camps and Agenda 21? There is more evidence to support the agenda of these programs than there is in the IRS Targeting case, yet liberals still scoff.  The John Birch Society is a honorable and reputable organization that has done exhaustive research and performed tireless investigations into gathering the evidence of these Communist groups that operate under semi-legitimate government agencies and profess to be anything but what they actually ARE.  In fact, Agenda 21 is well documented and the information is available to anyone who requests it. The U.N has printed and distributed the entire program and has made little effort to disguise it. Go ahead, look it up for yourselves!

      I purchased the books and DVDs I mentioned last week, for our town councilmen and they received them at last week's Town Board meeting.  Tonight, a meeting was held to pass a resolution to "Accept the Findings" of the public hearing and D.O.T meeting re: the sidewalk project. It was sparsely attended and was about as exciting as watching paint dry.  I have been doing my best to be still at the meetings lately, and TRY to give these "men" the benefit of the doubt until and unless they over-step as they always eventually do. There ARE things simmering beneath the surface, but they are on a mission to build sidewalks that we don't want or need, so that will keep them on their best behavior for a short time. Also, it IS an election year, so the Czar is working hard to be a "Good" boy. Don't be fooled.

     Still, I have let up on them some and usually just sit and listen to the meetings. Tonight was no different. Dougy did his usual staring thing and I did my usual ignoring of it. In fact, I was having a hard time staying awake. Then he just HAD to do it! Dougy just NEVER learns!  I may not have his engineering degrees, but as I always say, never confuse education with intelligence.  This guy is the saddest excuse for a human being I have ever met, after Obama. (No, I have not MET Obama and have no desire to). You get the gist.  Anyway, the talk about the "Hamlet" planning for New Lebanon came up and Dougy just HAD to take a stab at me. He made a nasty comment about the "Booklets that were passed out to the board last week claiming that community planning is a "PLOT". LOL!  Idiot.

     Not ONE of the councilmen acknowledged the materials I had bought and given them, yet Dougy insinuated that I am a Conspiracy Theorist. Apparently he hasn't heard any news in the past 8 or 10 days. Or maybe he HEARD it, but as the liberal idiot he is, he denied it or failed to understand it. Had the materials been written by Preppers or  extremists, I could relate, but it was John Birch material, and FACTUAL evidence of what Community Planning means for the future. It is a "Warning" to those of us that are intelligent enough, sensible enough, and realistic enough to SEE the intent. That leaves Dougy out. Had he, or ANY of the Town Board members BOTHERED to attend the Stephentown presentation of Agenda 21 last month as they were invited to do, they would have seen the Truth for themselves, but they were too busy pushing sidewalks down our throats.

     I guess they have forgotten history, and what happens to the supporters of tyranny. They are the first to be sacrificed, EVERY time.  We warn, they ignore. WE survive, they do not.  Ignorance. I am SO glad that Dougy's wife ordered him to NOT run for office again.  She is not only his boss at work, but at home as well.  Thank you Mrs. Clark! One less emasculated male with a little "Title" will do Lebanon NO harm.

     I try not to go this far into the "private" lives of the dirty local government, but Dougy stepped over the line tonight and just this once, I am cutting myself some slack and shooting back.  Wait until he sees what ELSE I have waiting for him! I've been visited by some officials twice in the past week, and informed of some important duties that ol' Dougy was supposed to have done and has not! Since it involves ME directly, and these officials are NOT happy with Dougy, I see another win for our side coming very soon. NEVER poke a hornet's nest with a short stick, Dougy.

   Onward and upward. Thursday is shaping up nicely and we are expecting between 100 and 300 protestors here in town at 3:30 sharp. Lebanon will not soon forget. Of course, the Town and the officials are not the object of this protest in any way, the TROOPERS are. It will still be a memorable event. A Redress of Grievances as described in that document the liberals hate so much, the Constitution.  Speaking of which, the Gangster Governor is now beginning to threaten the Sheriffs who have Honored their Oaths and refused to enforce the Safe Act. So the Sheriffs of NY State are taking it to Federal Court.  Cuomo's response to that was, "Let them, it's America".  LOL!

      Watch the video below of Steve McLaughlin speaking at the Fundraiser in Glenville last week.  If it moves you, be at the courthouse on Thursday afternoon.

Cuomo attempts to SILENCE NY Sheriffs

From Jacob Rieper- Nra/ILA


I reported this morning about a meeting between
Gov. Andrew Cuomo and leaders of the New York
State Sheriffs’ Association, during which Cuomo
told the sheriffs to keep quiet about the SAFE Act.


Many sheriffs, who are elected on the county
level, oppose the law and have said so publicly.
The Sheriffs’ Association as well as several
elected sheriffs last week signed an amicus brief
supporting a federal court challenge to the new
gun control law. One of the named parties was
Putnam County Sheriff Donald Smith, the past-president of the association.

I reached out to Smith as I reported the article.
He said he did not attend the meeting with Cuomo,
who has said the SAFE Act will save lives. Smith did offer these thoughts:

“I have joined in the amicus brief because I feel
so strongly that what is at stake in this case is
a basic, fundamental and constitutional right of
our citizens. All our rights as set forth in the
Declaration of Independence and the Constitution
are put at risk if citizens are stripped of their
ability to defend themselves in accordance with
the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights.
The
Second Amendment is about more than hunting and
target shooting—it’s about good citizens being
able to protect themselves and their families
against threats to their life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.”

“One of my deepest concerns is that drug dealers,
gang members, and felons will always skirt the
laws to obtain any kind of gun they want and thus
the strictures on gun ownership in the new law
will effectively penalize only law abiding
citizens. Similarly, such drug dealers, gang
members and felons are not going to abide by the
restriction against loading more than seven
bullets in the guns they carry. The only sure
effect of those provisions of the law will be to
put innocent gun owners at a potentially fatal
tactical disadvantage against better armed criminals.”

“Although law enforcement officers are trained,
equipped and ready to respond to acts of armed
violence, their response time is often measured
in minutes, while in many instances, citizens
under attack have just seconds to ward off harm.
Here in Putnam County we have one of the most
well-armed communities in New York State, with
over 10% of our residents having handgun
licenses, and Putnam County has had the lowest
crime rate in the State of New York for three consecutive years.”


“We are a nation of laws, in which the rule of
law must be observed. We in law enforcement
cannot cherry-pick the laws we like and choose to
enforce only the ones we favor, because that is a
slippery slope that leads ultimately to anarchy.
Instead, when we perceive that a law is not well
designed and will not promote the public good, we
have a duty to do what we can within the legal
processes to oppose and change that law and to
help craft a better one. That is what I and so
many of my colleagues in law enforcement are trying to do in this case.”

What Our Kids Will Never Know.                     5-29-2013


                  Most of the folks who bother to read this blog are around my age and older. We are the Americans who remember America.  WE are the people who have witnessed the devastation wrought upon our country by liberalism and seen the negative changes that have come about in society as a result.  How many of you remember your early days in school?  Every classroom had the alphabet posted around the top of the walls in both block and cursive.  Cursive isn't taught anymore.

                  George Washington and Abraham Lincoln pictures were hung prominently along with other patriotic signs and pictures.  The morning routine was one minute of silence for prayer followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. No child was ever told that they HAD to pray, or HOW to pray, but if they chose to, they had that ONE minute to do so before their day began. That was a "choice", but the Pledge was NOT.  No one dared refuse to stand and recite those words, in fact, no one would ever even THINK about refusing. We were PROUD to be Americans and to pay respect to our flag!

                While we were in school, the teachers and Principal were our leaders and examples and we did as we were told with no back-talk or argument. We traveled from the classroom to the lunchroom or gymnasium in an orderly LINE and with little noise, and we dressed in clean, conservative clothing.  Anyone who dared disrupt the classroom or show disrespect for faculty was sent to the office, and the Principal was terrifying! He had a leather strap about 8 inches long with a wooden handle, and was free to use it. Boys were strapped on the palms of their hands and girls were warned with a sound slap on the Principals desk with the strap inches from their hands.  It was not abusive, it was instructive and effective.

                Many times, if we stepped that far out of line in school, our parents knew about it well before we got home, and more punishment was waiting. It was a GOOD thing, and the majority of us matured into GOOD people.  We learned about the TRUE history of America. We were taught all about the Constitution, how and why it came to be and what it contained. Easter was Easter and Christmas was Christmas, not "Spring and Winter Festivals".  I grew up in a large city and we had classmates of many races and cultures, but there was no need for "Political Correctness" or "Special Treatment" because we were just all kids and friends, and didn't even NOTICE the differences very much. We didn't have Sex Education classes because those things were left to the parents to teach, as they should be, and we never focused on any religion, we celebrated them ALL and every holiday associated with them. It helped us to learn more about one another in a fun manner and no one was "Overly-Sensitive" as they are today.

         We went home after school and our mothers were THERE. Dads went to work and made the bacon and mom cooked it.  My dad was away a lot as a long-lines truckdriver, but most dads had 9 to 5 jobs and families sat at the table together at dinnertime.  Kids played outdoors with other kids. We had no computers, no video games or color T.V, no remote controls and no cellphones. We went out and got dirty and tired and used our imaginations, played games as teams, ate a good dinner, bathed and slept like the dead.  Most families practiced their faiths by attending services on Saturday or Sunday. We had a lot of Jewish families in the neighborhood and THREE Temples in a three-block area.  There were Italians, Germans, Lithuanians, Blacks, Irish and Jews, co-existing peacefully. We kids loved the diversity, because having dinner at a friend's house could mean anything from Gefilte Fish to Kielbasa.

          Unemployment was not an issue, there were jobs aplenty and people could afford the little luxuries like a second telephone or a small backyard pool. Then the Hippies appeared and Vietnam happened. Liberalism had always existed, but now it was assaulting us like an epic tornado and destroying everything in its path. One day I was witnessing the murders of JFK, RFK and Martin Luther King, the first steps of a man on the moon, the panic of Apollo 13, and videos of the war on the nightly news, and the next I was learning about Homosexuality and Free love and worst of all, Anti-Americanism. Nuclear War loomed over us , the neighbor boys came home in boxes and people threw garbage at them. Families began to change from a mom and dad to just a mom, and often a very YOUNG mom. More and more people went on welfare and violent crime escalated.

         Suddenly there was this thing called "Racism" and "Black Power" and inequality and it was all so confusing.  Everyone was angry at everyone else all of a sudden.


          Fifty years later and here we are in a different America.  If we were to spend a day or two in a public school classroom today, we would not be able to relate. There is no moment of silence, and the Pledge is optional. There is no dress code and the girls dress like Hookers and the boys wear shirts with offensive and disgusting words on them. Patriotism is taboo and actually brings punishment. Teachers receive little respect and many don't deserve any. There is no order or control, and teaching the Constitution and accurate history can cause funding to be taken from the school that dares teach it. No more strap, no more scary principal, no encouragement of imagination or free-thinking. Tolerance of the intolerable is forced upon the kids and Political Correctness is a requirement. Freedom of Speech is suppressed and punished and normal play like Cowboys and Indians or Cops and Robbers can get a kid suspended. 

         Kissing and improper touching between students is dismissed as "Normal" and Birth Control devices are made available to students as young as eleven. Racism is  accentuated and exacerbated and there is extreme Left-Wing indoctrination of the kids via orders of the liberal teacher's unions and Boards of Education.  College is even worse! If you are Conservative, sending your kids to college is a huge waste of time and money unless you choose a Christian College with no Liberal Professors. Tall order, since I am aware of many Christian Schools at every level of education that are forced to hire non-Christians and liberals under the EOE Act.  Look at the Boy Scouts!  The Homosexuals have now forced themselves into that Christian Organization for no reason other than because they COULD. Now, Conservative parents are pulling their sons out of the Scouts by the thousands and that centuries-old organization will fail as a result.

      Gay parents could very easily have started their own , similar group, but that would have been too "Fair" and would not have made anyone miserable, which is their goal in life. Unless they are shoving their alternative lifestyle down others throats, they are not content. Gee, maybe we should organize Heterosexual groups to infiltrate the Gay bars and clubs and LAMBDA. WE don't do those things because we are contented with our choices and feel no need to force it on anyone else. It's called, "Live and Let Live". Liberals don't get that.  It's their way or the highway.


            America has never been perfect and there have always been good folks and bad folks and numerous differences. That's what makes life interesting. Forcing one's ideas and choices upon others though, is NOT acceptable. Those who cry the loudest for Peace and Harmony are the very ones who do their utmost to prevent it.  I disagree with a lot of lifestyles and beliefs, but I respect the rights of others to choose.  I have friends of every race and religion and sexual preference. As long as they are not doing anything criminal or harmful to others, I respect their freedoms. So why is it, that as a White, Conservative Christian, I am not afforded the same respect? Why must I conform to the things I disagree with, yet the minority groups do not?  Why should I accept Islam when it is pure evil and should be banned from America as a dangerous cult, not as a "Religion"?

          Why should I accept the violations of my Constitutional Rights by people who run to the Constitution to protect their own?  Answer is, I DON'T and I WON'T ! I will respect the rights of others but I will demand the same.  I will object to the evil of Islam and Pedophilia and Communism with my last breath and I will love my God and my Country forever regardless of what anyone else thinks or feels. I remember America, and I know that the country I remember will probably never be seen again. I ache for our youth who never got to see it, never have seen anything BUT the amoral and selfish effects of liberalism.  It makes me so very, very sad and it also makes me feel guilty for not having done more, sooner.  I am disgusted with and ashamed of our government and the fact that WE have allowed them to get so large and out-of-control, so dis-honest and corrupt.

        Seven years ago, I made a promise to myself and to God that I would dedicate the rest of my life to doing as much as possible to make things better for the next generations. I have kept that promise and will forever. It has cost me friends and made me new friends. I have been laughed at and criticized and persecuted, and I have been thanked and blessed. I had sleepless nights and felt self-doubt, but I have also been strengthened and informed. Life is a crap-shoot folks, but I believe that each and every one of us has a purpose and the gifts to put that purpose into action. Each of us can do SOMETHING to make the world a better place, and we SHOULD.  Whether you choose to go the Washington D.C and Lobby Congress or donate a bag of groceries to the Food Pantry , you are doing something terrific and compassionate and important. One is no more honorable than the other.  To borrow a line from Nike, "Just DO IT". 

        God Bless our Young People Today.           JJ

Chemung County Sheriff Christopher Moss said Gov. Andrew Cuomo was
clear in his meeting with him and a handful of other local law
enforcement: Expressing your opinion about the SAFE Act hurts its enforcement.

"He was adamant that sheriffs around the state should not be giving
their personal opinions in reference to the SAFE Act because they
wouldn't be able to objectively enforce the SAFE Act if they did so,"
Moss said in an interview today with Gannett's Albany Bureau. The
Times Union reported on the meeting in today's papers.

Moss, who was the only sheriff in attendance, said he thought he and
members of the sheriffs and chiefs' associations were meeting with
the Democratic governor a month or so ago to discuss potential
changes to the gun-control law passed in January. Instead, Cuomo
sought to shut down their vocal opposition, Moss said.

"We told the governor that we were elected officials and we had a
constituency just like he did, and that we were responsible to them,
and we had the right as elected officials to give our opinion on the
act," Moss said.

Moss, a Republican, said there wasn't a lot of backslapping going on.
The sheriffs, who are mainly from upstate, have opposed the law,
saying parts of it is unenforceable and unconstitutional. They also
filed an amicus brief in support of a lawsuit seeking to have the law tossed.

"The meeting was cordial, but you could tell it wasn't a friendly
atmosphere after it got rolling," Moss said. "Because at the end of
the day, the governor has his opinion and we respect that, and we
hope he respects our opinion as well."

Moss said, "I think the governor is doing a good job. Just in this
instance, we don't agree with him."

Cuomo downplayed the meeting when asked about it today by reporters,
saying he remembers them simply discussing the law and potential changes to it.

"That's not my recollection of the meeting at all," Cuomo said of
Moss's description. He added that, "People have opinions, and people
can offer their opinions and that's part of the process. I offer
mine: agree, disagree."
