The Modern Militia Movement-Missouri MIAC Strategic Report

The Feb. 20 report called “The Modern Militia Movement” mentions such red flags as political bumper stickers for third-party candidates, such as U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, who ran for president last year; talk of conspiracy theories, such as the plan for a superhighway linking Canada to Mexico; and possession of subversive literature.

Town is without a Police Force and Several city Officials!

Ringling Police Chief, City Officials Resign

RINGLING — A dispute between officials has left a small southern Oklahoma town without a police force, and the mayor, vice mayor and city attorney have decided to quit, too.Ringling Mayor Jerry Reid said he and police Chief Jeremy Wilson were among those who resigned from their positions on Tuesday. Reid said his resignation won’t be effective until he provides something in writing.

“There are things that I need to tie up before it’s official,” Reid said by phone Tuesday night.

According to Reid, Wilson was the only paid member of the force and nine others “didn’t draw a penny.”

Reid said he tried to talk Wilson out of quitting, but after five other meetings regarding his employment, Wilson was “tired of being on the chopping block.”

A few weeks ago, the council held an emergency meeting to consider a request to fire the entire police department.

“He’d managed to get past it, but this time it looked like the three council members were getting together and were going to fire him over some crap that wasn’t true anyway,” Reid said. “I resigned, the vice mayor resigned and the city attorney resigned.”

Phone calls to council members Terry Blackwell and Mary Elliot went unanswered Wednesday. There was no telephone listing for the third council member, Tony Bortz, and a message left at Ringling City Hall also was not immediately returned.

The Jefferson County sheriff’s office will take over patrol duties until a more permanent solution is found.

Reid said part of the dispute involves a “dope problem” in the town of about 1,100.”We’ve got these special interest groups that got aggravated that there were too many patrolmen on the streets. To me, when a police officer is patrolling the streets, I feel safe. For people who got something to hide, it’s worrisome when a police officer patrols on the streets.”

There also has been controversy surrounding the investigation into the family of two teenage girls who, along with a relative, were killed in a fire last month.

“Maybe this will wake up the town,” Reid said. “Local governments don’t get the very best people at times because nobody wants to do it.

“Constantly, you’re stuck with dummies.”

Beware of Your Bumper Sticker/Sign!

Oklahoma City police officer pulls man over for anti-Obama sign on vehicle

The police officers who stopped Oklahoma City motorist Chip Harrison and confiscated a sign from his car told him he has a right to his beliefs, but the Secret Service “could construe this as a threat against President Obama,” according to the incident report released this morning.

The sign, which read “Abort Obama Not the Unborn,” was returned to Harrison later that day, the report said.

Police spokesman Steve McCool said this morning that the sign was taken in error, and Oklahoma City residents should not be worried that their First Amendment rights will be violated.

Harrison told the officers that in his opinion the words “Abort Obama” meant to impeach him. He told the officers he does not believe in abortion because he is a Christian.

Harrison was stopped on westbound Interstate 240 at 8:45 a.m. on Feb. 12, according to the police report.

Harrison said he later received a call from a person who said he was a lieutenant supervisor for the Internal Investigations Department and wanted to know his location and return his sign to him.

According to Harrison, the supervisor said the Secret Service had been contacted on the matter and had told them the sign was not a threat to the president.

Harrison was asked if he would like to file a complaint. He said he was not sure but would take the paperwork, just in case.

But his run-in with the law wasn’t over yet.

”The Secret Service called and said they were at my house,” Harrison said.

After talking to his attorney, Harrison went home where he met the Secret Service.

”When I was on my way there, the Secret Service called me and said they weren’t going to ransack my house or anything … they just wanted to (walk through the house) and make sure I wasn’t a part of any hate groups.”

Harrison said he invited the Secret Service agents into the house and they were “very cordial.”

”We walked through the house and my wife and 2-year-old were in the house,” Harrison said.

He said they interviewed him for about 30 minutes and then left, not finding any evidence Harrison was a threat to the president.

”I’m still in contact with a lawyer right now,” Harrison said. “I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

Harrison said he feels his First Amendment rights were violated.

McCool said the officer who pulled over Harrison misinterpreted the sign.

”We had an officer that his interpretation of the sign was different than what was meant,” McCool said. “You’ve got an officer who had a different thought on what the word ‘abort’ meant.”

McCool said the sign basically meant Obama should be impeached and it was not a threat.

”(The officer) shouldn’t have taken the sign,” McCool said. “That was (Harrison’s) First Amendment right to voice his concern.”

McCool said although the sign should not have been confiscated, the situation was made right in the end.

”We always try to do the right thing and in the end we believe we did the right thing by returning the sign,” McCool said.

Deport Aunt Zeituni Onyango, Here Illegally??

Group Calls On Obama To Deport Aunt

Woman Was Living In Boston Housing Development

A national group is calling on President Barack Obama to deport his aunt, an illegal immigrant who was living in Boston.

The Americans for Legal Immigration PAC filed an arrest request with Immigration and Customs Enforcement Monday and issued a public demand for Obama to deport Zeituni Onyango.  Onyango is currently under a court’s order to leave the country or be deported, according to ALI-PAC.

Onyango is currently living in Ohio and has vowed to fight against being deported. Four years ago, an immigration judge instructed her to leave the country after her request for asylum from her native Kenya was rejected.

“President Obama has promised the American public that his administration will honor the principles of open government, the Constitution and the Rule of Law,” said William Gheen of ALIPAC.  “Obama must either deport his aunt or destroy his own credibility by showing her favoritism.”

Last year, Onyango was found living in Boston. Obama said that he didn’t know that one of his relatives was living in the city illegally and believes the appropriate laws should be followed.

A spokeswoman for the Boston Housing Authority said when Onyango was given public housing she met all federal and state standards. The deportation order came a year later, according to Lydia Agro.  She said the BHA was never notified of the order.

A Shot for Freedom In South Carolina!

A Shot for Freedom in South Carolina

I received some news this past week that has put a smile on my face that will not go away. My lawyer, Rich Bolen of Lexington , SC ( shades of the first Lexington ) filed a lawsuit in the Fifth Judicial Circuit Court. This time around yours truly is not the defendant. The defendants are Larry McDaniel, the man that lied about hiring a company that employs illegal aliens. Police Officer Gregory James, the law enforcement official that took me to jail while ignoring all the crooks hard at work on the job site that I protested. The city of Columbia , South Carolina and Richland County are also defendants because of their willful acts in trying to shut me up.

These four defendants are facing a multitude of charges which include malicious prosecution for attempting to force me to plead guilty and when I refused improperly filed an additional charge against me. Abuse of process, false arrest and imprisonment, civil conspiracy, assault and battery and violation of my civil rights. Larry McDaniel and PO James, if found guilty face a fine of $2000 dollars and/or five years in prison. Richland County and Columbia conspired with these two individuals to violate my civil rights as guaranteed under the US Constitution and the South Carolina Constitution.

I have always been a big believer in karma. Whatever you do to people, be it good or bad, will come back on you some day. That’s why I will usually go out of my way to avoid getting into an argument with anyone. But every once in a while something happens that makes you put your foot down and say ‘to hell with this crap’, if these guys want to treat me like a common criminal for standing up for my constitutionally guaranteed rights, then they most definitely picked the wrong guy to try to push around.

That is what I was thinking a year and a half ago, while handcuffed in the back of a police cruiser, on my way to the Richland County Detention Center to spend a glorious night in jail. At that point I had completely given up on my politicians, my government and my law enforcement agencies. Why have faith in a system that will throw you in jail for speaking out against it? Why have faith in a government that has become corrupt? Why have faith in a police department where the chief is a personal friend of the man I was protesting? Why should I have faith in any department of the American government when they are more interested in feathering their own nests than they are in our Constitution and protecting the rights of American citizens.

Why have faith in an American criminal justice system where the prosecutor is more interested in forcing me to plead guilty than he is in finding out the truth? Why have faith in a criminal justice system where the prosecutor threatens me to plead guilty or the crook that I was protesting will level another charge of cursing against me? Why have faith in a corrupt system, where the prosecutor forgets to insure that there is an adequate supply of jurors in the pool? Why have faith in a system where I am forced to go to court six different times even though I am guaranteed a quick and speedy trial?

Why have faith in any of this? Simple, it is because all of my faith was in the American people and the United States Constitution. I did not and do not have faith in my courts, police or politicians because they are the ones that have sanctioned the wrongs that have been done to this country and the American people. The First Amendment guarantees my rights to free speech no matter that I spent a night in jail exercising it and it was a night well spent. My forefathers were prepared to sacrifice their lives and the least that I could do was spend a few uncomfortable hours in jail.

Well, my faith in America , its people, and Constitution did not let me down. I was found not guilty by a jury of my peers even though the prosecutor did everything possible to threaten me into pleading guilty. My faith always rested with the American people because I knew they would see through the lies. My faith rested with the US Constitution because I knew it spoke the truth unlike my prosecutor and the man I protested for admitting to me that he employed illegal aliens. And they came through for me.

On Feb. 21st, 2008, I was found not guilty of all charges leveled against me by people that have forgotten our Constitution and what it stands for. These people were so awed by their power and the money in their bank accounts that they figured a jury would convict someone, solely on the basis of their lies and threats. They figured wrong and now it is time for them to pay the piper.

Commuted Sentences are Not Good Enough!

with 2 comments

The Commuted Sentences of U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, are great news for their families, and is great in getting them out of prison where they don’t belong, but they should have been Pardoned.

These men were doing the job they were trained to do, and should never have been convicted.  But since President Bush showed his Liberal side, (as he has done so many other times) these two men are still considered convicted felons and so will have all the restrictions that apply to felons, and no matter what anyone says they will be treated as such, and that is just not right.

Bush Cuts Sentences of Ramos, and Compean

Agents convicted of shooting smuggler will be released from prison March 20

© 2009 WorldNetDaily

President Bush commuted the prison sentences of former Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean today.

The announcement came on the last full day of Bush’s presidency. The sentences for Ramos and Compean are scheduled to expire March 20 but there was no immediate explanation for the time period between today’s announcement and that date.

Two years ago, Ramos and Compean began serving sentences of 11- and 12- years respectively for a 2005 incident in which they fired on a drug smuggler as he fled back into Mexico after bringing 750 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. near Fabens, Texas.

“Thank God for this commutation,” said Joseph Farah, editor of WND, who launched a petition and letter-writing campaign that re-energized the Ramos-Compean issue in the last 30 days of Bush’s term. “This will end the sleepless nights for their wives and children. This is the first step toward making these families whole, again.”

His petition collected more than 40,000 signatures by the time today’s announcement was made, and the letter campaign produced more than 3,000 FedEx letters to the White House.

“We can only thank Joseph Farah, Jerome Corsi and the staff at WorldNetDaily because from the beginning you have been with us and you never gave up on the case,” Joe Loya, Ramos’ father-in-law, said today. “Your reporting had a lot to do with the decision today by President Bush to commute the sentences.”

The petition had described how the agents “are now serving outrageously long prison terms for shooting and wounding, in the line of duty, a fleeing illegal alien drug smuggler trying to bring almost 800 pounds of marijuana into the U.S.”

The smuggler was granted immunity for his illegal activities in return for testifying against the agents. After the trial, it was revealed the smuggler participated in another drug run into the U.S. while he held immunity.

The law under which the agents were ordered to serve minimum 10-year sentences for using a firearm in the commission of a crime never had been applied to law enforcement officers.

Remember the Voter Intimidating New Black Panthers From Philly!

leave a comment »

Well THE AMERICAN PUNDIT explains that The Justice Department has not for gotten one little bit.

Justice Department Sues Thugs from New Black Panther Party

You’ll recall the thugs from the New Black Panther Party engaged in intimidation tactics in Philadelphia on election day, standing outside a voting precinct in black uniforms and bearing billy clubs. Well, the Justice Department evidently hasn’t forgotten about them, either. It’s filed an injunction against said thugs.

Justice Department Seeks Injunction Against New Black Panther Party
Lawsuit Seeks to Prohibit Voter Intimidation in Future Elections

WASHINGTON – The Justice Department today filed a lawsuit under the Voting Rights Act against the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense and three of its members alleging that the defendants intimidated voters and those aiding them during the Nov. 4, 2008, general election.

The complaint, filed in the United States District Court in Philadelphia, alleges that, during the election, Minister King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson were deployed at the entrance to a Philadelphia polling location wearing the uniform of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, and that Samir Shabazz repeatedly brandished a police-style baton weapon.

“Intimidation outside of a polling place is contrary to the democratic process,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Grace Chung Becker. “The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was passed to protect the fundamental right to vote and the Department takes allegations of voter intimidation seriously.”

According to the complaint, party Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz confirmed that the placement of Samir Shabazz and Jackson in Philadelphia was part of a nationwide effort to deploy New Black Panther Party members at polling locations on Election Day. The complaint alleges a violation of Section 11(b) of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which prohibits intimidation, coercion or threats against “any person for voting or attempting to vote.” The Department seeks an injunction preventing any future deployment of, or display of weapons by, New Black Panther Party members at the entrance to polling locations.

The New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, which claims active chapters nationwide, is distinct from the Black Panther Party founded by Bobby Seale in the 1960s.

The Civil Rights Division enforces the Voting Rights Act of 1965. To file complaints about discriminatory voting practices, including acts of harassment or intimidation, voters may call the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division at 1-800-253-3931. More information about the Voting Rights Act and other federal voting laws is available on the Department of Justice’s web site at www.usdoj.gov/crt/voting/index.htm.

And as American Pundit said.  GOOD.  I hope they teach these gentleman a lesson, and make an example for others in the future that have and stupid ideas.

Police Try to Use You Tube to Catch Fugitives!

Hey I’ll be the first to say, I’m all for it if it can help solve criminal cases.

Ore. police use YouTube to catch fugitives

By Rick Bella
Oregonian

OREGON CITY, Ore. — The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office is using a popular video-sharing Web site in hopes of catching criminals.

The sheriff’s office has started its own YouTube page, where deputies are posting videos on open cases, as well as public service announcements.

“It’s a Web site that many people already are familiar with,” said Detective Jim Strovink, sheriff’s spokesman. “We hope to use the site to present information that will be useful to the public and open a two-way dialog with our deputies.”

The Web page opened for business earlier this month. Deputies have posted videos on the sheriff’s department’s Air Patrol and Domestic Violence Unit, along with videos on the county jail and boating safety. A video by Sheriff Craig Roberts announces that the sheriff’s office is hiring.

The first video deputies posted on a criminal case is a 4-minute piece on Leonard Weston Ramey Jr., who is on the FBI’s Most-Wanted List for white-collar crimes. Ramey faces felony charges of securities fraud, money-laundering, racketeering and aggravated theft for allegedly scamming would-be investors in Clackamas County out of $600,000. Authorities believe he also pulled similar scams in Tacoma and California.

Strovink said Ramey is accused of running elaborate Ponzi schemes, using money from new investors to pay off older investors. He said Ramey fabricated financial reports to convince investors to give him more money, then left town.

He was last seen in the San Francisco Bay area in 2006.

“This is one of those cases that people may forget unless we bring it to their attention,” Strovink said. “We’d like nothing better than to get a good tip from our YouTube page.”
