66-year-old Larry Brinkin, the first man to use the phrase “domestic partner” in a lawsuit, was arrested in California Friday in connection with felony possession of child pornography, police said.  The district attorney’s office will reportedly decide Tuesday whether to file charges.

Media reports are offering more details on the horrific charges, and are also providing a picture of who Brinkin is and how he’s been viewed.  The Huffington Post republished an SF Weekly post that concludes with Theresa Sparks, the executive director of the Human Rights Commission, saying:

“It’s almost incredulous, there’s no way I could believe such a thing…He’s always been one of my heroes, and he’s the epitome of human rights activist — this is man who coined phrases we use in our daily language. I support Larry 100 percent; hopefully it will all come out in the investigation.”

But while there is a certain degree of disbelief, other sources are pointing out that the evidence against Brinkin certainly warrants investigation.

Caution: what follows is extremely disturbing. 

The San Francisco Chronicle describes the allegations:

Police say that Brinkin had pornographic images, some that appear to show children as young as 1 and 2 or 3 years old being sodomized and performing oral sex on adult men, in e-mail attachments linked to his account, according to a search warrant served by San Francisco police.

Representatives of America Online contacted authorities after coming across e-mail attachments from one of its subscriber’s accounts containing what they believed to be child pornography.

The Los Angeles Police Department, which was assigned to the case, traced the IP address associated with the account, Zack3737@aol.com, to Brinkin, a San Francisco resident, according to court records. Los Angeles police forwarded the case to San Francisco police.

San Francisco investigators say the account was registered to Brinkin, and that he paid for the e-mail service with his credit card.

Police provided two examples of e-mail messages from last year in which Zack3737 provides disturbing descriptions of the exploitative sexual acts.

The e-mail account also is linked to Yahoo discussion groups on sexual exploitation of young boys and girls, according to the search warrant. [Emphasis added]

Though the Huffington Post links to part of an article from the SF Weekly, the updated article has far more graphic details:

Zack3737@aol.com — whom the police allege is Brinkin — provided graphic commentary on the photos of interracial adult-child sex. Comments included “I loved especially the ni**er 2 year old getting nailed. Hope you’ll continue so I can see what the little blond bi*ch is going to get. White Power! White Supremacy! White D*ck Rules!”

The AOL e-mail account was also linked to Yahoo! Groups centering around discussions of child porn, according to the search warrant. Investigators say they additionally found e-mails sent from Brinkin’s now-defunct city e-mail account to zack3737@aol.com. [Emphasis added]

The news follows the conclusion of “Pride Week,” where Brinkin has been honored in the past.  After he retired from his 22-year tenure at the Human Rights Commission, the Board of Supervisors even declared the week of February 1, 2o10 “Larry Brinkin Week” in San Francisco.

Brinkin, who reportedly has a longtime partner and teenage son, was not taking questions Monday, but several blogs have risen to his defense.  According to PJ Media blogger Zombie, the “Lez Get Real” blog was the first to do so, writing:

There have been incidents where people have been arrested for possessing child pornography on their computer that turned out to be malware using the computer to launder the images. This can often be difficult for people to prove, however.

Do not be surprised that anti-LGBT organizations will use this arrest against the Community; however, it is important to remember that most pedophiles identify as straight, and there are many straight people who have been arrested, charged, and convicted for possession of child pornography.

Brinkin’s co-workers and supporters seem just as stunned as everyone else by the arrest.  The vice president of the California Association of Human Relations Organizations said Brinkin was always a consummate professional, and Bevan Dufty, who authored the board resolution for “Larry Brinkin Week,” said: “I have admired and respected his work for the LGBT community…I respect and am confident that there will be due process.”

THE BLAZE by BECKET ADAMS


Ohio Man Using a Scheme to Snatch Up ‘Abandoned’ Houses That’s So Absurd, It’s Scary to Think It’s Actually Working

A Springdale, Ohio, family was shocked when they returned from a visit to a dying relative to find that a stranger had moved into their house and changed the locks – and even more shocked to learn that the intruder may have the law on his side.

I Feel Violated: Meet the Man Who Changed the Locks and Claimed Ownership of a Familys Home While They Were Out of Town

Image source: WLWT-TV

The family, who asked to remain anonymous, is moving to Pittsburgh and a local bank is foreclosing on their home of 21 years in Ohio. However, the bank had nothing to do with emptying the Ohio house and changing the locks – the new “owner” did that.

The situation has escalated into an all out legal battle, with the man saying he has the documents to prove he’s the rightful owner of the family’s home.

A local news group, WLWT-TV, investigated the family’s legal situation and found at least a dozen similar cases linked to the same man.

The new “owner,” Robert Carr, began his occupation of the family’s home shortly after they left to visit a relative. He emptied the house, changed the locks and then produced court documents alleging ownership when confronted by the family.

The document Carr showed the family is referred to as a “quiet title,” which can be used in situations involving abandoned property.

More specifically, a “quiet title” is an “action brought by a person in possession of real property against any person who claims ‘an interest’ adverse to him for the purpose of determining such adverse interest,” WLWT-TV explained in a follow-up to their original investigation.

Simply put, Carr is saying he “lives in the properties, everyone knows he lives there and he has lived there long enough to gain the legal right to own it despite having another person say they own the property,” the report added.

The family, of course, disputes these claims.

“What he’s looking for is full title and ownership of the home,” said the family’s attorney, Alison Warner, adding that the family is frightened by the entire ordeal.

“He’s in their home. They don’t know when he’s there. He can be there now,” Warner said.

Carr, for his part, has no intention of paying a cent for the home. And this is apparently how he operates, according to WLWT-TV’s investigation.

The report found 11 cases where Carr had filed similar ownership documents, seven on the same day. When the news group went to look at some of these houses, they found Carr had put up “no trespassing” signs – even though he has yet to be listed as the legal owner of those properties.

Carr explained himself to the news team: “When you abandon a property, bam, walk away from it, ‘I ain’t never coming back. I don’t want nothing to do with it,’ right? Somebody can come in, ‘Oh, mine.’”

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Carr is not acting alone.

“I have a team of people who go out and I say make sure the house is empty. If it’s empty, change the locks,” Carr said.

“You can just come in and change the locks and become owner?”  WLTL-TV’s Karin Johnson asked Carr.

“Anybody can,” he replied.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=bbs2avh1ecI

But the Springdale family is not as impressed with Carr’s strategy as he is.

“I feel violated. (I’m) very scared, you know, because I never know if somebody’s going to be here,” the family said, adding that their legal battle has become a nightmare.

“It’s really been hard,” the family said.

The family’s lawyer added: “This is stress that has fallen on their shoulders out of nowhere, after the death of a loved one and now they’re responsible to answer to this.”

Carr has been charged with breaking and entering in at least one case. He of course disputes the charge.

THE BLAZE by BECKET ADAMS (MY TWO SENSE: OBAMA LAW directive, “Do As I SAY, Not As I Do.” How ever the Left justifies this directive is beyond the powers of logical minds to understand. Socratic Irony is the very description of the Progressive agendas and their responses to opposition. Their contradictory words and actions are Crazy-Making. The Leftard Progressive notion that in order to remove the yoke of societal oppression, society must be oppressed. In other words persecution, abuse, maltreatment, hardship, suffering, misery and repression of the “down trodden,” can only be eliminated through the use of repression, suppression, subjection, subjugation, injustice, tyranny, and despotism toward the rest. Go figure. JUST ME!


ADDENDUM TO DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO–IRS IS OBAMA’S THUG CREW

Cancer Patient Who Says Obamacare Canceled His Health Insurance Now Says He’s Being Audited by the IRS

A cancer patient who said publicly that his health coverage was canceled because of Obamacare now says he’s being audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

Bill Elliott appeared on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” earlier this month and said he was told that his cancer was considered “beyond a catastrophic pre-existing condition” and his plan was being canceled because of new regulations.

He said he was given the option of a new $1,500-per-month plan, up from the $180 per month or so that he’d been paying. Elliott told Fox’s Megyn Kelly that he had decided he wasn’t going to pay for the new expensive plan, and was instead going to take the financial penalty and “let nature take its course.”

Appearing this week on “Rocky D” on Charleston, S.C.’s WQSC, Elliott said that after a media frenzy, his insurance company worked it out with him to allow him to keep his coverage — but there’s a new hitch.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/11/29/cancer-patient-who-says-obamacare-canceled-his-health-insurance-now-says-hes-being-audited-by-the-irs/#ooid=R1d3V2aDqdyY7pXmUz0GrOB3Tj46q_OB

“Monday I got a certified letter, I went down and got it and it’s from the IRS and they are auditing my books from 2009,” Elliott said.

He said he didn’t own a business at that time, and in fact was working for the government. He said he’s paid his taxes every year and is not any kind of a tax evader.

There was one more part of the notice — Elliott said that “due to federal budget cuts,” the meeting between him and the IRS won’t take place until April 2014.

“It doesn’t matter. It could’ve been today if they wanted it to,” he said.

The radio host said, “you stood up and spoke out about how Obamacare screwed over your insurance and probably would kill you and what’s the next thing that happened? You get audited by the IRS. That is not a coincidence.”

“No it’s not,” Elliott said.

And it might not just be Elliott: C. Steven Tucker, an insurance broker who contacted Elliott after his Fox News appearance, said that after he helped assist Elliott with his coverage, the IRS “are now coming after ME all the way back to 2003.”

Elliott told Kelly that he actually voted for Obama over Mitt Romney last year specifically because he liked what Obama had promised about being able to keep your doctors and your insurance plans.

Elliott said on the “Rocky D” show that he’s doing better now health-wise, thought still has to have bone scans every four months.

See the President’s Alleged Handwritten Letter With the Quote ‘Tea Baggers’ in It

President Barack Obama allegedly told a Texas schoolteacher in a handwritten note that pursuing the Affordable Care Act was not “politically” smart, but that it was the “right” thing to do.

The president also defended the rights of so-called “tea baggers,” a derogatory term used against supporters of the Tea Party, to protest his signature health care law.

Obama’s note on official White House stationery was made in response to a letter from Thomas J. Ritter, a fifth-grade teacher at Sally B. Elliott ­Elementary in Irving, Texas, according to the New York Post. Ritter bemoaned the “toxic” political environment surrounding the Affordable Care Act.

“This bill has caused such a ­divisive, derisive and toxic environment,” Ritter wrote, according to the Post. “The reality is that any citizen that disagrees with your ­administration is targeted and ridiculed.”

“I hesitated to write for fear of some kind of retribution,” he added. “I watched you make fun of tea baggers and your press secretary make fun of Ms. [Sarah] Palin which was especially beneath the dignity of the White House … Do the right thing not the political thing. Suggest a bill that Americans can support.”

Much to Ritter’s surprise, he received what appeared to be a genuine response from the president.

“I … appreciate your concern about the toxic political environment right now. I do have to challenge you, though, on the notion that any citizen that disagrees with me has been ‘targeted and ridiculed’ or that I have ‘made fun’ of tea baggers … [I] defend strongly the right of everyone to speak their mind — ­including those who call me ‘socialist’ or worse,” Obama wrote.

“I believe that health care reform will be the right thing for the country … It certainly wasn’t the smart ‘political’ thing! And I hope that in the months to come, you will keep an open mind and evaluate it based not on the political attacks but on what it does or doesn’t do to improve people’s lives,” he added.

Ritter has since put the president’s note up for sale on momentsintime.com.

“I am selling the letter because I am just so disappointed, and this Obamacare bill is wrong,” Ritter said, according to the Post. “The president told me what he thought I wanted to hear. The letter is just words on a paper. It doesn’t mean anything to me because Obama doesn’t mean any of it.”

You can see a copy of Obama’s letter here:   

When TheBlaze contacted momentsintime.com to verify the authenticity of the letter, we were told it was “absolutely” real.

Obama has been known to write notes back to people who send him letters, and has even said he sends checks to struggling Americans.

THE BLAZE by FRED LUCAS


Valerie Jarrett Targets Hobby Lobby as a ‘Corporate Entity’ Trying to ‘Seize a Controlling Interest’ Over Women’s Health

White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett called out Hobby Lobby and insisted the Obamacare mandate case that will go before the Supreme Court is about whether big corporations can restrict women from having access to birth control.

Valerie Jarrett Slams Hobby Lobby After Supreme Court Accepts Obamacare Case

Senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett accused craft store Hobby Lobby’s owners of wanting to “take the option for birth control benefits away from their employees.” (Getty Images)

“No corporate entity should be in position to limit women’s legal access to care, or to seize a controlling interest over the health care choices of women,” Jarrett wrote on the White House blog. “To take that type of power away from individuals, and to let the personal beliefs of a woman’s boss dictate her health care choices would constitute a major step backward for women’s health and self-determination.”

The case is actually a religious freedom complaint against the administration for the Health and Human Services mandate requiring insurance to provide free coverage of abortion-inducing drugs, contraception and sterilization. If the plaintiffs win, it would not allow them to restrict employees from buying these products on their own, only that the employees would not get them for free.

The high court will hear the case from two family-owned companies, the Oklahoma-based chain Hobby Lobby and the Pennsylvania-based Conestoga Wood Specialties Store Corp., both of which argue that paying for employee-based coverage of these drug violates their religious freedom.

“Today, there are people trying to take this right away from women, by letting private, for-profit corporations and employers make medical decisions for their employees, based on their personal beliefs,” said Jarrett, whose blog was cross-posted on the Huffington Post.

Jarrett predicted victory in the high court, and called out just one of the plaintiffs.

“Among the first cases to reach the Supreme Court is one filed by Hobby Lobby, an arts and crafts chain whose owners want to be able to take the option for birth control benefits away from their employees,” Jarrett said.

The two litigants in the case are not trying to restrict anyone’s freedom, said Sarah Torre, policy analyst for the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

“This is an interesting argument from the administration that pushed a health care law that severely restrictions the ability for Americans to choose health care that aligns with the value of their family and restricting companies that could be creating jobs,” Torre told TheBlaze. “Obamacare is about restricting choices.”

“No one is suggesting a ban on anything,” Torre continued. “This is about family businesses – the Green family and the Hahns family – about their freedom to continue to create jobs while respecting their values.”

The Green family is the owner of Hobby Lobby. The Hahns family owns Conestoga Wood. Lower courts split on the decision, ruling in favor of the Green family and against the Hahns family.

(THIS IS OBAMA’S CIVILIAN ARMY-JM)

Defense Department gives local police equipment designed for a war zone

Published November 27, 2013  FoxNews.com

MRAP.jpg

March 12: Attendees look at the Lenco MRAP Bear SWAT Team vehicle at the 7th annual

From war zones to city streets, some military vehicles are getting a new life — and not everyone is happy about the recycling.

The Defense Department recently announced it would be giving domestic law enforcement forces hulking vehicles designed to efficiently maneuver in a war zone for use in thwarting any potential high-scale activity.

This did not sit well with those who see a troubling trend: the militarization of local police departments, including the American Civil Liberties Union, which has criticized the Defense Department for giving 18-ton, $500,000 armor-protected military fighting vehicles to local forces.

ACLU affiliates have been collecting 2012 records to determine the extent of military hardware and tactics sent to police and plan to issue a report early next year.

“One of our concerns with this is it has a tendency to escalate violence,” said ACLU Center for Justice senior counsel Kara Dansky.

An Associated Press investigation of the Defense Department military surplus program this year found that a disproportionate share of the $4.2 billion worth of property distributed since 1990 — everything from blankets to bayonets and Humvees — has been obtained by police and sheriff’s departments in rural areas with few officers and little crime.

Ohio State University campus police got one vehicle, saying they would use it in large-scale emergencies and to provide a police presence on football game days. Others went to police in High Springs, Fla., and the sheriff’s office in Dallas County, Texas.

In New York, the Albany County sheriff’s department already had four smaller military-surplus Humvees, which have been used for storm evacuations and to pull trees out of roadways. Their new Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected vehicle will go into service after technicians remove the gun turret and change the paint from military sand to civilian black.

Sheriff Craig Apple rejected the idea that the nation’s police forces are becoming too militaristic.

“Nothing could be further from the truth,” he said. “Our problem is we have to make sure we are prepared to respond to every type of crisis.”

To be sure, there has been some concerns raised in the past.

Radley Balko, the author of “The Rise of the Warrior Cop,” argues that the police mind set in the country is to be like a soldier.

“Instead of bringing soldiers in to do domestic law enforcement, we have allowed, and even encouraged, police officers to basically be armed like, police like, use the tactics of, be dressed like and adopt the mind set of these soldiers,” he said at a CSPAN forum last summer. “And the outcome is just as troubling, I think, as if the military were actually doing domestic police themselves.”

In October, Reuters ran a column by Michael Shank and Elizabeth Beavers called “The Militarization of U.S. Police Forces” in which the authors called for Congress to permanently ban the transfer of all military-grade equipment to U.S. cities.

The column noted the Pentagon’s 1033 Program that allows the Defense Department to donate its surplus equipment. It pointed out allegations of fraud and abuse and called some of the machinery donated “impractical.”

“Shocking, almost comical, examples of abuse have been well-documented — from the officer who sold his weapons on eBay, to the one who lent his weapons to unauthorized friends and the police departments that lost the military weapons or tried to auction them off,” the column said.

For police and sheriff’s departments, which have scooped up 165 of the mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles, or MRAPS, since they became available this summer, the price and the ability to deliver shock and awe while serving warrants or dealing with hostage standoffs was, however, just too good to pass up.

“It’s armored. It’s heavy. It’s intimidating. And it’s free,” said Apple.

THE BLAZE by BILLY HALLOWELL


 

Your Eyes Are Fooling You: There Aren’t Two Children in This Photo — and the Family Has a Chilling Explanation

We will be discussing this story and all the day’s news on our live BlazeCast with Editor-in-Chief Scott Baker (@bakerlink) beginning at 2:15 pm ET:

A curious photograph has given comfort to a grieving father who lost his son in a deadly tornado last May, though the seemingly supernatural reason the bereaved father has been put at ease might seem unbelievable.

Scott McCabe wholeheartedly believes that his 9-year-old son, Nicolas, who died inside Plaza Towers Elementary School during the disastrous tornado that struck Moore, Okla., has made himself visible from beyond the grave.

The picture in question shows Madison, Nicolas’ cousin, playing with a lighted sparkler on July 4 — nearly two months after the boy’s death. Upon closer examination, it looks as though a second child is standing behind her.

The problem? Madison was the only person in front of camera when the cell phone picture was snapped. Now, McCabe is convinced that Nicolas appeared behind her.

“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” he told KWTV-TV. ”Nicolas loved the Fourth of July and he loved firecrackers.”

Take a look at the picture below:

McCabe said that the apparition has been a major source of comfort.

“I was in awe. It touched my heart. It’s obviously not Madison,” the father said. “It’s obvious there are two people there or one person there and one spirit there.”

McCabe said his brother was also amazed after seeing the picture.

While some might dismiss the phenomenon as a camera glitch that resulted from Madison’s movements, McCabe told KWTV it’s clear to him that the two faces have different features and skin tones.

And that’s not all — the father said there was one more gripping detail. Nicolas was buried in his red Plaza Towers Elementary T-Shirt — and McCabe said he can make out a red shirt on the figure seemingly standing behind Madison.

McCabe knows many people will be skeptical of the image, but he’s not concerned with naysayers.

“They can say what they want. I believe,” he told KWTV. “I believe he’s watching over us.”

You Might Be Surprised by Who’s Furious at MSNBC Over Martin Bashir’s Sarah Palin Comments

Baltimore Sun TV critic David Zurawik angrily criticized MSNBC and NBC News — along with network stalwarts Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd — for failing not only to punish host Martin Bashir for comments he made about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin recently, but also for not even speaking about the issue.

TV Critic David Zurawik Criticizes MSNBC Over Martin Bashir’s Sarah Palin Comments

“Where are people like Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd who claim to speak for NBC News and the brand?” Zurawik asked Fox News’ Howard Kurtz on Sunday’s “MediaBuzz” program.

“Why haven’t they called Bashir out and the lack of punishment for him?”

Zurawik said Bashir’s comments and the lack of reaction from MSNBC hosts and the network as a whole is “part of the larger problem here, that the mainstream media isn’t more upset about this.”

“I’ve been complaining about the way our civic and political conversation on cable TV is debased,” he said. “And MSNBC has led that drive in a calculated way because they have no journalistic function. They have no reportorial infrastructure anymore for business reasons.”

Zurawik noted that when hosts are just “sitting in front of a camera doing opinion, you have to keep turning it up and turning it up and turning it up and being more and more extreme. And this is what we got. And no one cares! That’s what’s outrageous! Whatever you care about, whatever you feel about Sarah Palin doesn’t matter. The conversation of democracy, you can’t have this kind of stuff going on!”

As for the question of whether the media treats Sarah Palin with a double standard because she’s conservative, Zurawik said, “I think there is some of that, Howie, but the real question are where are people like Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd who claim to speak for NBC News and the brand? Why haven’t they called Bashir out and the lack of punishment for him?”

Here’s the clip from Fox News via Newbusters:

‘The Definition of Bullying’: Church vs. State Threat Leads Another School to Cut Ties With ‘Operation Christmas Child’

Just days after a South Carolina charter school came under fire and subsequently dropped support for Operation Christmas Child, an annual outreach to poor children that is operated by Samaritan’s Purse, an evangelical Christian organization, another public school in Colorado has done the same.

But while SkyView Academy, an elementary school in Highlands Ranch, Colo., officially cut ties with the group, parents are fighting back with an effort of their own to make sure that the outreach goes on as planned.

The school announced last week that it will be severing its relationship with Operation Christmas Child, ending two years of participation in the outreach, The Christian Post reported.

Students at the school had been raising funds and were preparing to put shoe boxes together for children in need. This was halted, however, when the American Humanist Association recently wrote a letter threatening a lawsuit if the charter school didn’t stop working with Operation Christmas Child.

The letter warned that the school is violating the separation of church and state by facilitating student participation in a Christian outreach — one that shares the Bible’s central message along with items for kids in need.

So, looking to avoid a lawsuit, SkyView Academy sent a subsequent note to parents and explained that the school would be halting to project.

An e-mail to parents allegedly read, in part, “In an abundance of caution because we do not want to expend school financial resources defending a lawsuit, we are not going to accept Operation Christmas Child boxes. If you and your child had planned to donate a shoebox of supplies, you are encouraged to find a charity of your choice for the gift.”

Some parents were so frustrated by the development that they planned a ”Religious Rights Rally” on Wednesday, where they assembled outside of the school to show support for Operation Christmas Child and to collect funds independent of the school.

It is unclear how much money was raised on Wednesday or whether the “Religious Rights Rally” was successful, but it seems some parents aren’t so willing to back down. Ruth VanSant’s daughter, Michaela, is one of the students who founded the Operation Christmas Child outreach at the school.

VanSant said that the effort “is still happening, according to The Denver Post. In addition to the Wednesday effort, materials will be collected on public property outside the school before and after each academic day starts.

Another parent responded to the American Humanist Association’s lawsuit threat by calling it “the definition of bullying.”

Kendal Unruh said that it is “tragic” that SkyView Academy “was bullied down.” And while she understands that the school does not want to enter a legal battle, she is hopeful that word gets out about the situation.

“I still want this egregious violation of our legal liberties being violated to be known publicly,” she told KUSA-TV.

SkyView Academy board president Lorrie Grove added that she and others were “shocked and disappointed” by the humanist group’s legal threat.

“It was hard to believe we were receiving a threatening letter based on the good intentions of our students,” she told The Denver Post.

KUSA is reporting that Principal Mike Munier admitted in a private email received by a reporter that the school was involved in an “indefensible” violation of the separation of church and state, although it is unclear what, exactly, he was referencing.

The email reportedly claimed that the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative legal group, had advised the school that due to an error in their handling of the Operation Christmas Child situation, participation was not permissible. But a lawyer from Alliance Defending Freedom told KUSA that it is possible for schools to participate in the outreach within the confines of the law.

SkyView Academy’s cancellation follows similar action that was taken by East Point Academy, a charter school in West Columbia, S.C., after the American Humanist Association sent a similar letter warning about a perceived church vs. state infraction.

THE BLAZE by DAVE URBANSKI (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/11/22/youre-just-a-young-punk-70-year-old-great-grandma-gives-pistol-whipping-thug-more-than-he-bargained-for/)


‘You’re Just a Young Punk’: 70-Year-Old Great-Grandma Gives Pistol-Whipping Thug More Than He Bargained For

 

Wanda Pierce, 70, pulled into her son’s driveway like she does every morning, hopping out of the driver’s seat to the passenger side and waiting for her son to emerge so the pair could carpool to work.

Suddenly her passenger door opened. Pierce thought it was her son.

“As soon as I turned my head, there we were, face-to-face,” Pierce told WTHR-TV in Indianapolis. She wasn’t looking at her son, but another man in his early 20s.

And he was pointing a gun at Pierce and grabbing the purse on her lap.

That’s when the great-grandmother did something her attacker probably wasn’t expecting.

“For some particular reason, instinct told me at the same time, ‘That’s mine,’” Pierce told WTHR of the Tuesday attack. “‘I work for what I get. You’re just a young punk running around out here doing things you ought not do and you’re not getting my purse.’”

“Then he told me, ‘Lady, give me the purse or I’m going to shoot you,’” Pierce recalled. “And that’s when I told him, ‘No, you won’t’ — bad word — and I held on to it anyway,” she told WTHR.

Pierce acknowledged that the safest path in that situation was to give up her purse — and that if she had to do it over again she’d make a different choice — but “until you’re in that situation, you really don’t know what you’d do.”

“I was bound and determined to keep what was mine,” she said. “Didn’t work.”

The attacker then pistol-whipped her, Pierce said. “He hit me in the head and I knew it was bleeding, but I still held on.”

“I continued to hold onto the purse and he hit me here,” she added, pointing to her right wrist.

“And something else hit me that said ‘let go’ and I let go,” Pierce said.

The man may have gotten away with her purse, but Pierce said she’d face him in court in a heartbeat and give him a piece of her mind.

“I’d tell him, ‘I hope that wherever you’re going, somebody beats the living tar out of you because you deserve it,’” Pierce told the station. “I only got hurt, but that’s all right. At least I gave ‘em a fight. I don’t think he quite expected that either.”

Egypt has documents indicating Obama is part of the Muslim Brotherhood

Egypt has documents indicating Obama is part of the Muslim Brotherhood

Surprise, surprise, President Obama’s half brother, Malik Obama, oversees much of the finances of the Muslim Brotherhood, not just in Egypt but throughout the Mideast.

When Morsi was arrested last month, the Egyptian military discovered a pile of documents linking the Obama regime with the illegal activities of the Muslim Brotherhood. Investigative journalist Jerome Corsi has obtained a copy of the document held by the Egyptian military, proving the Obama regime sent millions of dollars in bribes to the Muslim Brotherhood, paid out by the U.S. Consulate.

Conveniently, the President’s brother…is one of the architects of the major investments of the Muslim Brotherhood and oversees an $8 billion dollar bribe to the Muslim Brotherhood made by the Obama regime. The bribe was payment to guarantee that the huge tract of Egyptian land, the Sinai Peninsula, be turned over to the Muslim Brotherhood sister group Hamas, The Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas mince no words about their goals for Israel, which is total annihilation.

The former Chancellor of the Constitutional Court of Egypt and current adviser, Tahani Al-Jebali stated that the reason the United States cannot fight the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood is because the brother of U.S. President Barack Obama is the architect of the investments for the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood.

According to Egypt Daily News, a document exists showing the eight billion dollar “holocaust” agreement with the Obama administration that was signed by former Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi and his second in command Khairat Al-Shater. Both are under arrest by the Egyptian military for murder and treason.

Obama’s close ties certainly explains our weapons and arms shipments to Egypt along with monetary aid. It may also explain why the Obama administration ignores the persecution of Christians in Egypt.

According to Khairat Al-Shater’s son, Saad Al-Shater, prior to being arrested by the Egyptian military, his father was in possession of information linking Obama with the Muslim Brotherhood that he says would put Obama in prison.

If the Egyptian military releases this document, it would no doubt spell the end of the Obama presidency, bringing impeachment, a long prison term, and perhaps even the death penalty.

FOXNEWS by CATHERINE HERRIDGE


State Department

‘Pleading’ distress calls made from US consulate on night of Benghazi attack

State Department employees at the Benghazi compound knew they were in a death trap and made a series of radio distress calls to the CIA annex during the terror assault last year, according to congressional sources familiar with recent testimony on the attack from five CIA personnel.

Sources told Fox News that the radio calls, which were described in closed testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, were characterized as almost frantic, with State Department employees who knew they could not defend themselves “pleading” for their lives.

When the CIA team arrived from the annex about a mile away, they found the State Department employees without guns that could adequately protect them; one of the agents was found hiding in the consulate, apparently in a closet. The testimony lends more weight to repeated claims, in the wake of the attack, that the consulate was not adequately protected despite being located in a volatile and violent area prone to attack.

When the CIA personnel were asked for their reaction to the administration’s initial explanation that an anti-Islam video and a demonstration gone awry were to blame for the attack, Fox News is told they were seething with anger because everything on the ground — from their perspective — showed it was a premeditated attack.

At least three of the five — who were all in Benghazi — responded to the scene that night. The witnesses testified that five mortars rained down on the annex in less than a minute. They pointed to those details as more evidence of a professionally trained team, describing the attack on the annex as akin to a professional hit on the operation in order to drive it out of Benghazi.

Congressional sources say the testimony seems to further conflict with and undercut the briefing three days after the attack by then-CIA Director David Petraeus, who likened the attack to a flash mob. When pressed on the number and precision of the mortars, Petraeus offered that Benghazi was flooded with mortars, and played down their accuracy by suggesting they could have been fired from the back of a pick-up truck.

When Petraeus appeared on the Hill in November, following his resignation from the CIA over his admitted affair, he tried to claim that he knew it was a terrorist attack all along and insisted that he did not put the emphasis on the anti-Islam film.

BIZPACK REVIEW by JOE SAUNDERS followed by letter, posted on her Facebook page, by YOLANDA (LANA) VESTAL as told by CHERYL CARPENTER KLIMEK


NBC confronts Pelosi with ‘pass it to see what’s in it’ clip; hot mess follows

Nancy Pelosi still can’t see it.

Confronted by “Meet the Press” host David Gregory on Sunday about her famous Obamacare statement of 2010 — “We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.” — the San Francisco congresswoman didn’t give an inch.

pelosi 1“I stand by what I said there: When people see what’s in the bill, they will like it, and they will,” Pelosi said, in utter defiance of reality.

“It took a great deal for us to pass the bill. I said, ‘If we go up to the gate and the gate is locked, we’ll unlock the gate. If we can’t do that, we’ll climb the fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole-vault in.’”

Set aside for a second the fact that Pelosi might have thought she was talking about the Democratic approach to immigration. The former House speaker had no visible qualms about defending the handiwork she and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid produced during the disastrous years, from 2008-2010, that Democrats held both houses of Congress.

“It doesn’t matter what we’re saying here,” Pelosi nattered. “What matters is what happens at the kitchen table of the American people.”

Actually, what matters is what’s been happening with congressional Democrats who aren’t lucky enough to be from San Francisco and who abandoned President Obama Friday by voting for the “Keep Your Health Plan Act,” sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton, R-Ill.

What matters is what’s going to happen to Democrats who don’t start listening to their constituents when election time rolls around in November.

What matters is that the American people are seeing what’s in the bill. It’s what conservatives have been saying was in the bill for three years now.

They’re seeing it. And, no matter what Nancy Pelosi says, they don’t like it at all.

BELOW THE LETTER:

Texas single mom’s ‘thanks a lot’ letter to Obama goes viral

Crossroads ObamacareA Texas single mom’s letter “thanking” President Obama for Obamacare, and all that it entails, has gone viral.

Yolanda (Lana) Vestal posted the letter on her Facebook page, and what started out as a way to vent, became a way for others to share frustration over Obamacare. The single mother of two blasted the president for increased taxes and lavish vacations. The post has received over 63,000 “shares,” according to FreePatriot.org.

Here is Vestal’s letter to Obama:

Dear President Obama,

I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all you have done and are doing. You see I am a single Mom located in the very small town of Palmer, Texas. I live in a small rental house with my two children. I drive an older car that I pray daily runs just a little longer. I work at a mediocre job bringing home a much lower paycheck than you or your wife could even imagine living on. I have a lot of concerns about the new “Obamacare” along with the taxes being forced on us Americans and debts you are adding to our country. I have a few questions for you Mr. President.

Have you ever struggled to pay your bills? I have.

Have you ever sat and watched your children eat and you eat what was left on their plates when they were done, because there wasn’t enough for you to eat to? I have.

Have you ever had to rob Peter to pay Paul, and it still not be enough? I have.

Have you ever been so sick that you needed to see a doctor and get medicine, but had no health insurance because it was too expensive? I have.

Have you ever had to tell your children no, when they asked for something they needed? I have.

Have you ever patched holes in pants, glued shoes, replaced zippers, because it was cheaper than buying new? I have.

Have you ever had to put an item or two back at the grocery store, because you didn’t have enough money? I have.

Have you ever cried yourself to sleep, because you had no clue how you were going to make ends meet? I have.

My questions could go on and on. I don’t believe you have a clue what Americans are actually going through and honestly, I don’t believe you care. Not everyone lives extravagantly. While your family takes expensive trips that cost more than most of us make in two-four years, there are so many of us that suffer. Yet, you are doing all you can to add to the suffering. I think you are a very selfish and cold hearted man, who does not care what is best for the people he was elected by (not by me) to represent, but more so out for the glory of your name attached to history. So thank you Mr. President, thank you for pushing those of us that are barely staying afloat completely under water and driving America into the ground. You have made your mark in history, as the absolute worst and most hated president of the United States. God have mercy on your soul!

Sincerely,

Yolanda Vestal

FOXNEWS.COM by DR. KEITH ABLOW (MY TWO SENSE: I believe it is worse than Obama disrespecting others. I believe he is a clinical Narcisist, that he is amoral, and lacks empathy–all of the characteristic facets of a narcissist and a psychopath. No drama, Obama’s lack of character and integrity was certainly shaped in his youth, but once autonomous, he decided which path works best for him and his goals. He is also a megalamaniac, with delusions of power, relevance, and omnipotence. In short, Obama is in love with himself, and if he could, he would make love and procreate all by himself. JUST ME)


Why it is easy for President Obama to lie to the American people

By Dr. Keith Ablow

FoxNews.com
  • Recently, America has witnessed something we have not seen since Watergate:  The president of the United States openly admitting that he lied to the American people.

There are at least these two differences this time: First, the admission of the lie does not come at a moment when this president is facing impeachment (which would almost certainly have been true for President Nixon had he not resigned).

Second, this president still shows, in my opinion, even after his most recent mea culpa, far less remorse than President Nixon showed in the speech he made upon announcing he would leave office and in his choice to leave office.

I do not believe the president sees most Americans as competent. I believe he sees them as children.

In this case, the president lied to Americans about the Affordable Care Act, promising that passing the legislation meant they could keep their health plans and doctors, when the truth is that tens of millions of people will likely lose their health care plans and be forced to switch doctors.

That’s a really big lie, however you measure it — whether in the tens of millions of people affected, or the hundreds of thousands of doctors, or the dozens of insurance companies, or the thousands and thousands of employers or the rerouting of billions of dollars.

Yet, the president only said he was “sorry that people are finding themselves in this situation based on reassurances they got from me.”

He didn’t say that he had profoundly violated the trust of the American people.

He didn’t say that he would search his soul for the reason he could have been so intent on passing his legislation that he promised very important things he knew he could not deliver.

He didn’t say that the rage people feel toward him is justified.

Why does it seem so easy for the president to tell such a gargantuan lie?

Here’s why:

– In order to feel guilty about deceiving someone, an individual must have respect for that person.

– He must consider the other man or woman his equal.

– He must believe that depriving the other man or woman of the truth would be a sin because it deprives that person of free will. Because without the facts, competent people can’t make informed decisions.

But I do not believe the president sees most Americans as competent.  I believe he sees them as children, who cannot think for themselves, nor support themselves, nor defend themselves.

And because he believes this is a nation of children who are powerless to truly decide anything knowledgably, withholding certain facts from them “for their own good,” is no different than telling the kids a few harmless lies to keep them safe and settle them down and calm their anxieties.

“This doesn’t taste bad,” a father might say to his daughter before giving her medicine, even when he knows it will.  The lie is forgivable. It’s meant to keep his little girl from being too anxious and refusing what she needs.

But tell a competent adult something tastes good when it will make him gag, and you’ll be, rightfully, seen as having deprived the person of information he deserved.

This president was lied to by his father who abandoned him, by his mother who abandoned him and by the grandmother who hugged him, but also revealed that she distrusted men of color.

Now, he wants to be the only adult in town. He needs that much power to feel safe, because he was that disempowered and unsafe in the past. So, to him, we’re incompetents.

To him, we’re just kids who need to take our medicine. And lying is the easy and justifiable way to get the job done.

HOMOSEXUAL, OBAMA TRYSTS WITH RICH WHITE GUYS

Here’s How Obama And ObamaCare Is Selling Out The Young Millenials, Get Ready For Pain

obamacare

Remember back to the last election. All of the young people must have just thought that Obama was so cool. He was someone who made them feel good, or something like that. He promised to keep your rates on student loans low so that you could continue to be indoctrinated by liberal universities. And you feel for all of his false keep your healthcare plan and other b.s. In return, you young people voted for Obama by a margin of 28 percent. Simply amazing.

All of us older conservatives (and possibly even the libertarians among you) tried to warn you. We said that liberalism is nothing more than a scam to take your productivity and give it to us. But not only to us, the ones who are actually working for a living. Your income and production will also go to those lazy, good-for-nothings who would rather sit at home and collect food stamps and welfare rather than going out and finding a job.

But thanks to how you voted—for Obama—we now have ObamaCare and a full line up of liberal rules and regulations that are dragging you down. Congrats for this, by the way, you will be the first generation in the history of our country that does not even live up to what your parents achieved, let alone exceed their efforts. Given the fact that we tried to warn you, I do not feel guilty about what you are about to suffer. I can only hope and pray that you learn something from all of this.

Instead of listening to us, you are now going to have the opportunity to do all sorts of things that you will not want to do. You can now buy over priced insurance that you neither want nor need. In return, this will subsidize my insurance, making it cheaper. You will also have the opportunity to work at menial jobs for a lot longer than you have planned, most likely needing to take two or three at the same time to make ends meet (since ObamaCare is going to force more employers to only hire part-time workers). I hope you didn’t plan on that investment banking or real estate career, since the job market may be permanently destroyed.

When I started out there was hope and opportunity and the promise of a better life. Is that still true for you today? Can you work and get credit and start a business? Not very likely due to the crippling regulations, income redistribution, and massive debt that have come with your election choices. According to the current statistics, most of you still live at home with your parents. Even the new ObamaCare law encourages this, allowing you to remain on mommy and daddy’s insurance until reaching 26.

But, hey, all of this makes it much easier for me. Do you realize that the last time I wanted to hire an office assistant (and this is simply a very basic job) I received over 100 applications? Yes indeed. Not that I really needed someone who was too terribly qualified, just some decent writing and editing skills along with the ability to answer a phone call once in a while and operate a computer. Just as a basic lesson in economics, with 107 applicants, do you think I am likely to pay the ‘winner’ more or less of a salary than I had originally hoped?

So, young people of America…please lean something from this pain that you are about to go through. I hope it really sinks in about how liberalism works in reality. It is not about finding a president you think is cool, it is about re-shaping the laws and rules of how things work. But look on the bright side, I will be happy to pay less for my insurance and look forward to getting those social security checks in a few years…but I doubt there will be anything left for you when the time comes.

What do YOU think? Is this an accurate representation of how liberalism works? Would you like to add anything? Why do you think the young millenials voted so decidedly in favor of Obama? Do you think they have learned their lesson…or do they need to experience more pain?

Obama Gets Into it With Louisiana Governor Over Healthcare.gov

121204_barack_obama_ap_605

POTUS decided to travel to Lousiana Friday and discuss the economy; his goal mainly to divert attention from Healthcare.gov. He began speaking about how he was going to create jobs by fixing roads, but Lousiana Governor Bobby Jindal immediately brought focus back to health care.

“We will not allow President Obama to bully Louisiana into accepting an expansion of Obamacare,” Jindal said in a statement, saying the expansion would cost the state too much.

“The dysfunction of the website and the president’s broken promises on being able to keep your health plan are just the tip of the iceberg in regards to the problems with this law,” Jindal added.

Obama has repeatedly promised that Americans could keep their health care plans/doctors, which was a fat lie. In his speech, he made promises to fix the failing website. The remainder of his speech focused on urging Congress to focus on infrastructure progress.

“I know if there’s one thing that members of Congress from both parties want, it’s smart infrastructure projects that create good jobs in their districts,” he said.

This just goes to show that POTUS can’t own up to his mistakes, and even when someone like Jindal brings it up, he still waves it away with lies and broken promises. Not surprising of course, but equally maddening.

Nice save Mr. President. But it’s apparent you’re still not listening to us.

THE BLAZE by JONATHON M. SEIDL (MY TWO SENSE: Israel is being handed to the Jihadis by this administration as fast as the “now you see it, now you don’t” magic tricks all cons use when it suits them. The fact that the obama takeover gang has placed a man like John Kerry in a position to speak to this issue with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, reflects that neither obama or Kerry has any respect for our long-time allies. Kerry, a wannabe war hero, lied his way through the Vietnam War era and remains as big a liar as obama himself. Whatever continues to keep people willing to crawl up the butt of the obama administration baffles me to no end. Frankly, I cannot come up with a logical explanation as to why some lune hasn’t attempted to do something stupid already. Most of us are sane, and we can keep our fury under control, but that’s not true for everyone. That, in itself, seems to point to the fact that the knee-jerk reactionaries of this nation, are obama supporters. Now, that does make sense. JUST ME)


United States Has Been Secretly Lifting Iranian Sanctions, Explosive Report Says

Published Nov. 8 at 8:45 am; Updated at 10:55 am.

The Obama administration has been secretly softening sanctions on Iran since the election of its new president and ahead of a new round of nuke talks with the country that’s been openly hostile to Israel and the U.S. in the past, an exclusive report from the Daily Beast says. That report comes as Israeli Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Friday that he “utterly rejects” the emerging nuclear deal between western powers and Iran, calling it a “bad deal” and promising that Israel will do everything it needs to do to defend itself.

Benjamin Netanyahu calls possible Iran nuke deal very bad

That deal includes the key condition for Iran that there must be relief from sanctions, but the Daily Beast’s Eli Lake and Josh Rogin write that “began quietly and modestly five months ago.”

Lake and Rogin continue:

“A review of Treasury Department notices reveals that the U.S. government has all but stopped the financial blacklisting of entities and people that help Iran evade international sanctions since the election of its president, Hassan Rouhani, in June.”

[…]

“For five months, since Rouhani’s election, the United States has offered Iran two major forms of sanctions relief,” Dubowitz said. “First there’s been a significant slowdown in the pace of designations while the Iranians are proliferating the number of front companies and cutouts to bust sanctions.”

The second kind of relief Dubowitz said the White House had offered Iran was through its opposition to new Iran sanctions legislation supported by both parties in Congress.

Not surprisingly, Netanyahu has been voicing displeasure over the deal, especially over the disappearing sanctions.

“I understand the Iranians are walking around very satisfied in Geneva as well they should because they got everything and paid nothing,” he told reporters.

“They wanted relief of sanctions after years of grueling sanctions, they got that. They paid nothing because they are not reducing in any way their nuclear enrichment capability. So Iran got the deal of the century and the international community got a bad deal,” Netanyahu said.

Israel believes Iran is trying to develop a nuclear weapon, and says international pressure should be stepped up, not eased, in order to force Iran to dismantle its nuclear program. Netanyahu has repeatedly threatened to attack Iran, unilaterally if necessary, if he concludes that diplomatic pressure on Iran has failed.

He spoke before meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. Kerry returned to Tel Aviv from Jordan to speak with Netanyahu before flying to Switzerland to participate in nuclear talks with Iran.

(Credit: AP)

Kerry’s decision to fly to Geneva comes after signs that global powers and Iran were close to a deal that would cap some of Iran’s suspected nuclear program in exchange for limited relief from economic sanctions.

“This is a very bad deal and Israel utterly rejects it. Israel is not obliged by this agreement and Israel will do everything it needs to do to defend itself and defend the security of its people,” he said.

A State Department official said only that Kerry and Netanyahu met one on one for two hours and 15 minutes.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki confirmed Kerry would go Geneva to meet Friday with the European Union’s top diplomat, Catherine Ashton, and Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Israel considers a nuclear-armed Iran to be an existential threat, citing hostile Iranian rhetoric toward the Jewish state, Iran’s missile capabilities and its support for violent Middle Eastern militant groups.

Netanyahu says pressure must be maintained until Iran halts all enrichment of uranium, a key step in producing a nuclear weapon; removes its stockpile of enriched uranium from the country; closes suspicious enrichment facilities and shutters a facility that could produce plutonium, another potential gateway to nuclear arms.

Despite Netanyahu’s warnings, there are growing signs that any international deal with Iran will fall short of his demands.

The Iranian nuclear program will likely to dominate Friday’s meeting, overshadowing Kerry’s efforts to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

A senior state department official said that Kerry has been open to the possibility of traveling to Geneva for the talks “if it would help narrow differences.”

The official said Ashton asked Kerry to attend the latest round of discussions. The official called the negotiations “a complex process” and said Kerry was “committed to doing anything he can” to help.

THE BLAZE by OLIVER DARCY (MY TWO SENSE: President Psycopath–There is NO doubt about it! JUST ME)


Obama Reportedly Told Staff He’s ‘Really Good at Killing People’

President Barack Obama told his staff that he’s “really good at killing people,” according to a new book set to hit shelves Tuesday.

The book, titled “Double Down” and authored by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, reportedly says the Nobel Peace Prize winning president made the comments while discussing drone strikes with his aides.

The quote from the book was first reported by Peter Hamby, who wrote a review for The Washington Post.

Obama has been skewered by critics on both the political left and right for his frequent use of unmanned aerial vehicles to carry out attacks against alleged terrorists.

Nonetheless, the president in October nominated Jeh Johnson, a staunch defender of the U.S. drone program, to be the next secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
