Gateway Pundit Stands With Our Fellow Conservatives on ‘Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day’ | The Gateway Pundit

From what I’ve read about this guy, it is my OPINION that he is a dangerous, vindictive liar.  I have read what he has done to various bloggers, yet I only heard of him earlier this week.  Why hasn’t his face been everywhere?  Well, it’s obviously up to conservative bloggers everywhere to stand up and tell the truth about Brett Kimberlin.

Let’s see what Gateway Pundit has to say on the issue:

We Will Not Be Silent

In the past year bloggers such as Aaron WalkerStacy McCainPatterico and Liberty Chick (Aaron Worthington) have been harassed and threatened by a terrorist known as the “Speedway Bomber” Brett Kimberlin. Kimberlin was convicted of several federal felonies in 1981 and sentenced to 50 years for terrorizing an Indiana town with a weeklong bombing spree. Kimberlin was released from prison in 2000 and since his release he has harassed and threatened anyone who dares to write about his past or current actions. Stacy McCain has not been silenced by this terrorist. He has been forced to leave his home in order to continue his investigation from an undisclosed location.

Brett Kimberlin is a nightmare.  In fact, he is the stuff nightmares are made of.  American citizens, exercising their First Amendment right to speak freely, are being viciously targeted and terrorized by a George Soros-funded violent domestic terrorist.  Today, in a strong showing of unity, spearheaded by Michelle Malkin, bloggers across the country are standing together to expose this predator of free speech to the world.

Here’s more from  Gateway Pundit  regarding what happened to Patrick Frey  (Patterico) :

Read Patrick Frey’s (Patterico) horrific experience as a target of a new tactic of terrorism called SWATting,

You’re about to listen to one of the most bone-chilling pieces of audio you will ever hear. At least, it was to me when I first heard it.

It’s a phone call that could have gotten me killed.

In this post you will hear that audio clip. You will also read about a months-long campaign of harassment carried out by at least three individuals: Ron Brynaert, Neal Rauhauser, and Brett Kimberlin — much of it directed at critics of Brett Kimberlin. This harassment includes repeated references to critics’ family members, workplace complaints, publication of personal information such as home addresses and pictures of residences, bogus allegations of criminal activity, whisper campaigns, frivolous legal actions, and frivolous State Bar complaints.

And finally, you will hear a comparison of one of those men’s voices to that of the man who made the call that sent police to my home. And you’ll read a declaration from a forensic audio expert comparing those two voices. …

Here is the disturbing call that sent police to the Frey’s home…

The National Bloggers Club has stepped up to the plate and set up a donation page to help support the bloggers targeted by Kimberlin.

I would say this is unbelievable, but is it really?  Why can’t people see what’s going on?  It’s so obvious.


Via National Review:

Bernardine Dohrn has a history with the Justice Department. More specifically, in the early 1970s, she was one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives because of her actions with the Weather Underground, a violent radical organization.

Times have changed. In 2010 and 2011, the Justice Department saw fit to give $400,000 in grants to an organization that lists Dohrn as a member of its board of directors: a $150,000 grant in September of 2010 and a $250,000 grant a year later.

I want you to do your own homework too.  Look at the groups getting grants, subsidies and other money from this administration.


2012 WTF 24 – The Dept of Labor Banning Farm Chores

By Kurt Sloan
2012 WTF 24 – The Dept of Labor Banning Farm Chores – I grew up in Ohio farm country, and had a great childhood there, but now new rules by the Dept of Labor would change how those farm kids I grew up with would grow up today.
The Department of Labor has stated that it is putting the finishing touches on rules that would apply more child-labor laws to children working on family farms, prohibiting them from performing a list of jobs on their own families’ land.  Under the rules, children under 18 could no longer work “in the storing, marketing and transporting of farm product raw materials.”  “Prohibited places of employment,” a Department press release read, “would include country grain elevators, grain bins, silos, feed lots, stockyards, livestock exchanges and livestock auctions.”
The new regulations, first proposed August 31 by Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, would also revoke the government’s approval of safety training and certification taught by independent groups like 4-H and FFA, replacing them instead with a 90-hour federal government training course; and would prevent kids from doing 4-H and FFA projects if they are not conducted at their parents’ house.
According to the article below, when pressed by the American Farm Bureau regarding why they felt the need to release these new rules now, the DoL indicated it was because the number of injuries are higher for farm kids than in non-ag industries, HOWEVER a US Dept of Agriculture study released recently says that farm accidents among youth fell nearly 40 percent between 2001 and 2009, to 7.2 injuries per 1,000 farms.  I guess they missed that report.
Cherokee County Farm Bureau president Jeff Clark declared the rules were “so far-reaching, kids would be prohibited from working on anything ‘power take-off’ driven, and anything with a work-height over six feet…” including most farm equipment.  He went on to point out that the “anything ‘power take-off’ driven” clause would also prohibit children under 16 from using battery-powered screwdrivers, and other power tools, since their motors, like those of a tractor, are defined as “power take-off driven.”
Additionally, the new rules say that jobs that could “inflict pain on an animal” would also be off-limits for kids, but they don’t bother to define what “inflicting pain” means.  So if putting a halter on an animal causes it discomfort, does that mean kids can no longer do that?   Montana Republican Rep. Denny Rehberg complained that the animal provision would also mean young people couldn’t “see veterinary medicine in practice … including a veterinarian’s own children accompanying him or her to a farm or ranch.”
Kansas Republican Senator Jerry Moran blasted Hilda Solis for getting between rural parents and their children.  “The consequences of the things that you put in your regulations lack common sense, and in my view, if the federal government can regulate the kind of relationship between parents and their children on their own family’s farm, there is almost nothing off-limits in which we see the federal government intruding in a way of life.”
To me, this just seems like more of the gov’t overstepping its bounds to control the people of America, trying to control how we raise our kids, instead of operating as representatives of the people’s wishes who elected THEM (or in this case elected the people who put Solis and company in their positions).

Allen West: Muslim Brotherhood & Extremist Groups Are Influencing U.S. Strategy | Video | TheBlaze.com.

He’s the bravest guy I know. He will always tell it the way it is! Take a look.

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) is never afraid to take a stand on the issues he holds dear, which is why the conservative politician is taking aim at the FBI for removing nearly 900 pages of allegedly-offensive training materials. According to West, this action, which was taken after Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) complained about some of the materials’ contents, is a form of “cultural suicide.”

Durbin, who wrote a letter to FBI director Robert Mueller about the situation, complained that the controversial documentation could lead Muslims and others to be targeted based on their religion. “There is a real risk that agents will be operating on false assumptions about Arab-Americans and American Muslims,” Durbin maintained.

West, though, said that the removal is evidence that extremist Muslim groups are holding sway over U.S. strategy. He discussed the issue of “tolerance” and its relation to the situation in an interview with Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning.

“We have to understand that when tolerance becomes a one-way street it leads to cultural suicide,” he said. “We should not allow the Muslim Brotherhood or associated groups to be influencing our national strategy.”

West’s main concern is that the U.S. seems to be watering down its definition of who America’s enemies are. In an attempt to decrease how intensely officials offend extremists, the politician claims that leaders are potentially endangering the nation.

Socialist Party of America Releases The Names of 70 Democrat Members Of Congress Who Are Members Of Their Caucus | The Obama Hustle

Well, I guess Allen West knows what he’s talking about.  Of course I never doubted him.  Most of the names are not surprising and I’m sure most of you will recognize them.  Here’s a hint at one. “And guess what this liberal will be all about.  This liberal would be all about Socializi…uh, um…will be about…would be about…basically, (pause) taking over, and the government running all of your companies.”  Give up?  Her initials are Maxine Waters.

MA Socialist Party of America Caucus

“This should come as a surprise to absolutely no one. The radical Marxist-progressives (communists) took control of the democrat party some time ago. They’ve only become more emboldened with the election of Barack Obama, who was raised as a communist from birth.

With their new found leader, Barack Obama, the Socialist Party of America felt secure enough to announce the names of 70 democrats in Congress that belong to their caucus.”

MA Members of the Socialist Party of America Caucus are as follows:

Hon. John Olver (MA-01)

Hon. James McGovern (MA-03)

Hon. Barney Frank (MA-04

Hon. John Tierney (MA-06)

Hon. Ed Markey (MA-07)

Hon. Michael Capuano (MA-08)

My AFP-CO Experience With Denver “Occupy EPA”/”Give Red Tape a Rest” Rally

EPA regulations = TOTAL RED TAPE! EPA has had negative impacts on miners, young college grads, farmers and businessmen! Enough is Enough!

Yesterday I attended my first protest rally.  It was called “Occupy the EPA”/“Give Red Tape a Rest” rally.  Going to a rally and holding a sign while calling out to passing cars is completely new to me, but totally worth it.  I’ve been reading and hearing more and more about the overreach of the EPA and how it is slowly finding more and more ways of gaining unlimited control over our way of life.  They have too much power with no oversight and that is one of the reasons I decided I had to join Americans for Prosperity-Colorado in protesting the Environmental Protection Agency-organized mining conference in Denver.  EPA officials were meeting here for a conference on hard-rock mining.

I have come to agree with AFP-CO which believes “the agency’s rogue regulators and biased scientists are destroying jobs, driving-up energy costs, crippling America’s competitiveness and contributing to the country’s economic crisis.”

According to AFP-CO:

Recent rules targeting coal-fired power plants are the latest in a long list of EPA regulatory excesses, according to AFP-CO, which will cost Coloradans jobs and contribute to already-skyrocketing energy costs. The agency relies on biased, agenda-driven “science” and “scientists” to bolster its actions, the group says, pointing to the shoddy work the agency did investigating alleged water well contamination in Pavillion, Wyoming — as well as the agency’s decision to provide a prime speaking spot at the April 4 conference to Boulder-based Stratus Consulting, a hired gun for extreme environmental groups that has been implicated in a scheme to use shady science to rig a favorable ruling in a lawsuit in South America.

About 50-75 people showed up for to protest the red tape the EPA is using to make it tougher for businesses to get approval they need to comply with the crazy regulations and guidelines they keep adding for the supposed purpose of protecting the environment.  We wanted people to know about how red tape and government overreach is restraining businesses to the cost of higher energy rates for everyone and the loss of jobs for many.  Most of the time lately, this comes at the expense of small businesses being unable to afford the cost of implementing procedures to meet EPA regulations.  Large businesses end up passing the cost onto the consumer which means the cost of gas, electricity, natural gas, etc. is passed on to people like you and I.  What’s worse is that these businesses have no recourse but to pay the money and comply or go out of business.

The reason for our protest had a more personal context to those of us here in Denver.  Colorado is a big mining state and we have great resources for hydraulic fracturing (fracking).

According to  from The Colorado Observer:

[…]The EPA is expected to issue new rules on fracking April 17, which critics fear will increase the regulatory burden on the natural-gas industry and drive up energy prices.

[…]The fracking rules come just weeks after the EPA proposed further limits on newly built coal-fire plants. Protestors said they worry that the Obama administration is trying to circumvent the coal industry in favor of natural gas and renewable energy.

Read her article about the protest here.

Lucky for me there are groups like AFP-Colorado that make it easy for people like me to get involved in making a difference.

At the main website for Americans for Prosperity it says“AFP is an organization of grassroots leaders who engage citizens in the name of limited government and free markets on the local, state, and federal levels. The grassroots activists of AFP advocate for public policies that champion the principles of entrepreneurship and fiscal and regulatory restraint.”

If you want to become more involved in standing up for limited government and getting back to the freedoms we’ve been used to as free American Citizens then check out Americans for Prosperity and click on your state to see what’s going on in your area.  It’s really helped me to feel as though I have a voice where I can go and participate in events that are done here in my state and city.  Check it out.  Find your voice!!

Kids held hostage by talk in Jefferson County Colorado – Denver Education Reform | Examiner.com

You may wonder why you should read a story from Jefferson County, Colorado.  Well, I don’t live in Jefferson County either, but I do live in a school district in Colorado.  You may also wonder why you should read this story if you don’t live in Colorado at all.  Well, let me tell you.  If this is happening in one school district, it’s happening in many, many more.  I think these things are going on in many school districts around the country.  The school boards talk about transparency, but sure don’t know how to be transparent.

The Board of Education in Jefferson County, Colorado sure doesn’t like Regan Benson trying to keep them honest.  Her diligence in trying to find out what her county school district is spending tax payer money on is sure pissing them off.  They make things difficult for her and her kids in any way they can.  I can’t even list the number of things various school district employees have said and done to her and her family.  I like her because she’s still speaking up.  Regan’s dedicated to making sure that when her school district makes excuses for the poor education the kids are getting because the district doesn’t get enough money, that they’re telling the truth; and they don’t like it.  The JeffCo school board does everything they can to make it difficult for Regan to attend public meetings.  They want her to stop talking.  After meeting her, and reading her articles, I’m sure she’s not going to stop making them accountable for the taxpayer money they receive.

Now, here’s the reason I think you should read Regan’s article.  It may help you find a way to check on your own school board in your local area.  You may realize there are real problems where you’re kids go to school and no one’s speaking up about it.  Well it’s time for all of us to check out our districts and make sure our kids are getting the best education possible.  If they’re not, speak up about it.  These bloated government agencies count on us being silent, but if moms don’t speak up, who will.

Here’s some of what Regan found in her school district:

[…]The Jeffco School Board along with the superintendent, were being led by a facilitator from the Colorado Association of School Boards (CASB). Prior to this meeting on March 23rd, this same facilitator met with the board in the same capacity for a total of 2.5 hours in November and December 2011. The school district, by way of the taxpayers has paid CASB $3016.90 for the 2.5 hours of this particular facilitator to provide, talk. The hourly conversion rate is in fact $1,206.76 for every hour of talk provided by this facilitator. There is no known reason to the general public as to the necessity for these services or who was responsible for coordinating such.

[…]Jeffco R1 financial transparency reflection of recent expenses paid to CASB:

  • Legal Fees/Financial Support to CASB (these dollars are being used directly by CASB to fund the Lobato lawsuit which equates to taxpayer dollars being used to sue taxpayers into providing additional funding for public schools in Colorado)- $84,933.00
  •  Annual Fees for district membership to CASB – $28,613.00
  • Consulting Services- $9,975
  • CASB Conference Tickets- $3560.00
  • CASB fall conference registration- $2090.00
  •  Annual Fees for district membership to CASB- $27,792.00

The day was full of “chalk talk” on March 23rd. One might expect that if the general public were welcome at these public meetings, hearing the majority of talk by the five member board would be a compliment to good public service. However, it is often the case that the majority of time board members talk in their public study sessions, they do not use microphones and indicate fear of the general public actually being able to hear what is being talked about.

And that’s just a drop in the bucket.  Regan has done some great research and there’s plenty of clear chicanery and non-transparency going on out there in JeffCo.  How much is going on in your school district?

Rule of Law » How Many Crimes Did the New Black Panthers Commit in Florida?

Rule of Law » How Many Crimes Did the New Black Panthers Commit in Florida?

This article is great!  J. Christian Adams is someone I really admire for his testimony before congress and his honesty in telling what he saw in the Obama Administration and the DOJ.

Here’s just a taste of what he’s written in this article:

America is not a land where thugs should be allowed to threaten free Americans who have been charged with no crime.  Seminole County, Florida, is not Ox-Bow Canyon, where resolutions come quick by murderers with rope and a tree.

We can thank Eric Holder in part for the disgusting bravado we’ve seen from these lawless thugs over the last few days.  Not only did his DOJ drop the voter intimidation charges against them, the DOJ refuses to bring what appears to be slam dunk felon-in-possession gun charges against one member.

The New Black Panthers act like they are above the law because so far they have been.

Americans are taking renewed notice of the New Black Panthers and the politicians who have enabled them.  What sort of country have we become that racist uniformed thugs can stalk polls and threaten free citizens with mob arrest and murder?  Is this a post-racial America, or a wicked reminder of a lawless age we thought we had moved beyond forever?
