  • Lemons: Gun-Totin' Left-Wingers Demonstrate at the Arizona Capitol: Is Bloodshed on the Horizon?

    Phoenix New Times ^ | 3/26/2017 | STEPHEN LEMONS
    Hey, lefties with guns, that's cool. At least, that was my first impression upon seeing about 40 or so assorted anarchists, Brown Berets, and members of a group calling itself the Phoenix John Brown Gun Club across the street from the state Capitol, openly armed to the proverbial teeth.

    Suggestions on how to legally and peacefully protest with firearms. WHY Participate in Civil Disobedience with Guns? Was there a point during the Obama administration that you felt threatened and powerless? Were you convinced the government was sincerely committed to securing your constitutional rights and ensuring law and order? Were you certain that your military and law enforcement were being allowed to keep you safe from invaders, jihadists and revolutionaries? Were you confident your objection to Obama's fundamental transformation was being heard when you voted in 2010, 2014? The Obama administration was a soft tyranny, a silent communist insurgency that...

    Nine years ago, a driver lost control of his pickup truck and crashed into the Confederate monument on the front lawn of the Franklin County Courthouse, decapitating the marble soldier. Some locals who found the monument offensive said they were glad to see it go, but there was never much doubt that once the money was raised, the soldier would be back. The rededication ceremony in 2010 drew a crowd of about 500 peoplewomen wore hoop skirts and men donned the gray uniforms of Confederate soldiers.

    Growing tensions between the ‘extreme Right and the Muslim world’ have pushed France to the ‘verge of a civil war’, the country’s most senior security chief has warned.Patrick Calvar, head of the General Directorate for Internal Security (DGSI) – France’s equivalent of MI5 – made his claim in the wake of last year’s terrorist attacks on Paris. A total of 147 people were murdered by terrorists in the capital during atrocities in January and November.Many of those responsible were French passport holders with North African backgrounds, leading to far-Right politicians calling for a massive clampdown on immigration.But Mr Calvar, 60, warned...

That's where police can seize your property and cash without first proving you committed a crime; without a warrant and without arresting you, as long as they suspect that your property is somehow tied to a crime. Now, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol has a device that also allows them to seize money in your bank account or on prepaid cards. It's called an ERAD, or...

    Barack Obama sent out his final Passover greeting as US president on Friday, recalling his 2009 tradition-making seder the first ever at the White House, and drawing a parallel between the story of the Israelites Exodus from Egypt and the battle for civil rights across the globe. Mah nishtana halailah hazeh?, the president wrote, quoting the Four Questions asked during the Jewish service on the first night of Passover. The Hebrew phrase means: Why is this night different from all other nights? The president continued: For Michelle and me, this Passover is different from all other Passovers because it...

    It will use 150,000 tonnes of concrete - nearly as much as the whole of the London Olympics - and contain enough cable to go around the world three times. And at £1.14billion the new bridge over the Firth of Forth is one of the biggest civil engineering projects undertaken in Britain in recent years, creating 1,300 jobs. Designed to take some of the strain off the old Forth Road bridge, which was recently closed due to safety fears, the Queensferry crossing is now taking shape with the three towers which will support the structure in place.

    Pope Francis warns marriage has been stretched and distorted in the United States, to the point where it is no longer even similar to the Christian sacrament of matrimony. The pontiff noted the unprecedented changes taking place in contemporary society, with their social, cultural and sadly now juridical effects on family bonds, referring to the Supreme Course decision in June to legalize same-sex marriage for the entire nation in Obergefell v. Hodges.

    Is it Time for Civil Disobedience? Is this the act of a government worthy of our respect? When the government rules by illegitimate means, is it legitimate to peacefully stand in defiance and disobey? The answer to this question is a reluctant yes. I have thought about this question for a long time and, as a former police officer and federal agent who pledged his life to upholding and enforcing the law, I take this call to action very seriously. In a piece (http://www.bornfreeamericanwoman.com/blog/) out yesterday by Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka Tea Party, a group victimized by the IRS...

    The debate about the Charleston Bible study shooting has morphed into a debate about the Confederate battle flag and other symbols of the Confederacy. This is not a trivial sideshow. Racism is not just a personal prejudice and an evolutionary byproduct. It resurfaces year after year because its been woven by historical events into the fabric of American culture. That culture is transmitted through the generations by the things we honor or dont honor, by the symbols and names we celebrate and dont celebrate. If we want to reduce racism we have to elevate the symbols that signify the struggle...

    This afternoon, in announcing her support for removing the Confederate flag from the capitol grounds, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley asserted that killer Dylann Roof had a a sick and twisted view of the flag which did not reflect the people in our state who respect and in many ways revere it. If the governor meant that very few of the flags supporters believe in mass murder, she is surely right. But on the question of whose view of the Confederate Flag is more twisted, she is almost certainly wrong. Roofs belief that black life had no purpose beyond subjugation...

    Judiciary Federal court: no liability for PA judge who made up criminal charge By Rachel MartinPublished April 13, 2015watchdog.org A federal court recently told a Lawrence County woman shes simply out of luck and cant sue local officials, including a Common Pleas judge who apparently made up a criminal charge that was used to place her on electronic monitoring. A judge has absolute civil immunity, even if the action was in error, was done maliciously, or was in excess of his authority, the three-judge panel ruled in its six-page opinion. Judge Thomas Piccione had ordered Lynn Van Tassel to report...

    In a speech one month ago, the first black president of the United States challenged millions of white Americans to resist the convenient allure of overlooking the countrys blemished moral record. It was a dual challenge, actuallyfirst to the classical understanding of American exceptionalism, but also to Americas persistent critics, who abjure the concept of exceptionalism altogether. What greater expression of faith in the American experiment than this? President Barack Obama said. What greater form of patriotism is there than the belief that America is not yet finished, that we are strong enough to be self-critical, that each successive generation...

    This week, the Supreme Court heard arguments re Texass refusal to allow Confederate flags to be stamped on license plates as part of a Sons of Confederate Veterans design. I wouldnt ask sons of Confederate veterans to disown their ancestry; in fact, my mothers mothers family was Southern, and four of my great-great-grandfathers fought in the Confederate army. And I know that lots of Americans sincerely see the Confederate flag as a symbol of states rights particularly because virtually no Confederate soldiers actually owned slaves. But, personally, I see the Confederate flag as the symbol of men who, as...

    With Prime Minister Yatsenyuk putting his foot down and squeezing the central bank to lift capital controls, Ukraine's currency is totally collapsing this morning. Up over 5 handles to a fresh record low of 33.75/USD, we suspect currency trading will be halted any minute. While we discussed the endgame for Ukraine last night, on the street, things are dire with ATM lines, shelves emptied, and local currency exchanges marking up levels dramatically more than the 'official' rates... The 'independent' Central Bank halted currency trading, and then the government screamed... "I learned this morning on the Internet that the National Bank...
