In case you were wondering about the US crime rate...

... and wondering what's being done about it by your federal officials, I have news America! They're deliberately making it worse.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. “The criminal alien releases typically occur without formal notice to local law enforcement agencies and victims,” CIS’s Jessica Vaughan, the report’s author, added.

Catch and release, on steroids. But that's not all, folks.
“In 2013, ICE targeted only 195,000, or 25 percent, out of 722,000 potentially deportable aliens they encountered,” CIS’s Vaughan wrote. “Most of these aliens came to ICE’s attention after incarceration for a local arrest.”
Basically, they don't deport anybody sent to them by police forces across the country. They take them in the front door, fill out some forms and then push them out the back door.
And please people, let's not pretend that this is little Pedro and his mama who only want to live in the Wonderful country of America and work real hard, ok? These guys are deadbeats, dirtbags and drug dealers.
They didn't get pulled over in some bogus traffic stop either, they got busted selling drugs, or robbing people, fighting, vandalism, car theft, shoplifting, beating their girlfriends and etc.

The Obama administration is making America worse deliberately to buy votes from illegal Mexicans. That is all.

No family.

This is the future your socialist overlords have planned for you.

No word on whether the old girl was buried/cremated properly, or if they just chucked her in the power station furnace with the dead babies.

Taser armed Drone.

You read that title and said "No Way!" didn't you? Yes. Way. There's video at the link.

A new drone, armed with a taser, is gaining a lot of interest from military and law enforcement agencies.

It is called the ‘Cupid Drone’ and was developed at Chaotic Moon Studios. The newly developed Chaotic Unmanned Personal Intercept Drone can shoot 80-thousand volts of electricity into a subject.

People don't usually know that the "Eighty THOUSAND Volts!" generated by a Taser comes from a nine volt battery.  The same kind you put in a smoke alarm.  The actual guts of a taser are -small-.

There's no particular technical hurdles to be conquered here, just get a camera-equipped drone and zip-tie a taser to it. If you look at the pictures that's about what they did here. In fact, I'm pretty sure a teenager could hack one together for the school science fair, if they were allowed to fiddle with a taser. First year university types could probably put laser range-finding and targeting on there as well. Oh, and autonomous control.  Arduino is your friend.

All this hardware and software is available to the enterprising young on the Internet as Open Source code and off-the-shelf hardware. Including targeting lasers. They're cheap. Like, under five bucks kinda cheap.

So are infrared cameras and light sources. Flying armed drone with night vision. Made in your kid's bedroom. For a couple hundred bucks.

Time to get working on my autonomous anti-drone defense turret. I'm thinking a multi-thousand dollar gold plated government taser drone probably won't fly well if you turn a hose on it, and even the Ontario government is going to have a hard time justifying banning water hoses.

Oh wait: autonomous anti-drone defense VEHICLE. Because= power washer!  Yeah baby!

EPA = you can't build that!

EPA proposes to fine some guy $75,000 a day if he doesn't do whatever they tell him, with a smile. Oh, and he already has a permit to do what he did, on his own land.

The government says he violated the Clean Water Act by building a dam on a creek without a permit from the Army Corps of Engineers. Further, the EPA claims that material from his pond is being discharged into other waterways. Johnson says he built a stock pond -- a man-made pond meant to attract wildlife -- which is exempt from Clean Water Act regulations.  

The property owner says he followed the state rules for a stock pond when he built it in 2012 and has an April 4-dated letter from the Wyoming State Engineer’s Office to prove it.

“Said permit is in good standing and is entitled to be exercised exactly as permitted,” the state agency letter to Johnson said.

Now, if I were the guy in charge of  the Wyoming State Engineer’s Office, I'd be on this thing like white on rice. Because if my state-issued permits aren't worth the paper they are printed on, my job is in grave danger.

Anyone have any questions why they are teaching "shelter in place" to your kids? Here's your answer.

The Phantom

"Shelter in place" sounds better than "cower".

Infowars reports that the federal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in New York and New Jersey is holding unannounced "lockdown drills" in schools.

“On Thursday, March 6, a team comprised of ten officials from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, and the NJ Department of Education’s Safety and Security Task Forces visited Glen Ridge High School to conduct an unannounced school lock-down drill,” reports Georgette Gilmore. “With the exception of Glen Ridge Superintendent Dr. John Mucciolo and Chief of Police Sheila Byron-Lagattutta, no Glen Ridge Public School personnel received advanced notice of the exercise.”

The federal/state “security team” later reported their satisfaction with GRHS Principal Dirk Phillips for activating the school’s lockdown procedure when ordered to do so by DHS officials and police.

“The NJ DOE team told us that of all the schools they have visited, GRHS was one of the best,” said Superintendent Dr. Mucciolo, confirming that the drills are now becoming commonplace throughout the region.

A prominent feature of these drills is the command to students to "shelter in place". Note the word command, note the phrase "shelter in place".

The article raises some rather alarming points.

While authorities justify school lockdown drills as necessary exercises to prepare for potential school shootings, the likelihood of one happening is miniscule. Critics have pointed to the fact that the drills achieve little else than traumatizing school children.

Some have also argued that teaching kids to “shelter in place” rather than evacuate the scene of a shooting is bad advice because it is likely to lead to more casualties. The process of having children submit to armed masked men during school lockdown drills is also contradictory in that it teaches them to behave exactly the same way towards an actual gunman.

Yes. Actual shooting attacks in schools are exceptional events. As in, they are the exception to the rule. Your kid is more likely to be eaten by a tiger than to die in a school shooting. We don't have armed tiger patrols to prevent that eventuality, do we? So why do the authorities feel the need to have federal police agencies conducting school lockdown drills?

Because: lawyers.

From a tactical point of view, getting all the kids to huddle in a corner is the stupidest possible response. You have just made a pile of immobile children, commanded them not to move and reinforced those commands with drills. That's the perfect environment for a crazed shooter, as proven by Adam Lanza.

However from a bureaucrat's point of view, this is the only possible response. State politics dictate that schools be Gun Free Zones, so you can't get the kids all into the school gym and defend them. You can't teach them to escape out the windows etc. because then you have a bunch of kids running around the schoolyard with no coats on during a drill, and their mummies will get all upsetted. But as long as you have a PLAN and a PROCEDURE, and DRILLS for that plan, the lawyers are happy. That it is the worst possible plan is irrelevant in court.

The Feds are involved mostly because DHS is searching for new and innovative ways to expand their power and throw their weight around, plus they have all this shiny new combat gear they want to drive around in. They have more and better stuff to play with than the Gestapo ever did, and they're looking for places to show it off.

Best part is, a whole generation is being taught to -cower- in the face of authority. That's what "shelter in place" means. Cower, and hope the alligator eats somebody else. Excellent behavior to have in a population when you're installing a police state.

Ladies and gentlemen, free men do not cower.  The proper response to a lockdown drill is for your kid to GET OUT NOW!!! and call you up on his cell phone after he or she has escaped. If necessary the kid needs to bite and claw their way out past any officials who try to restrain them. Teach your kids to FIGHT, not cower like mice.

I think its time for parents and students to start up some serious civil disobedience to this.

Finally some video push-back!

Yes friends, it IS legal for Americans to videotape the cops. In Maryland, anyway.

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A Baltimore City lawsuit settlement sparks major police policy and training reforms that affect everyone with a cell phone camera.

The police department is putting it into writing so their officers fully understand. You can record them and they can’t do anything about it. First Amendment advocates call it a major victory.

Only took four years and a major lawsuit to convince the cops that the law really does say what it says. That being that anybody can video anything as long as they aren't underfoot in a police situation. If you're across the street, you're good.

No word on the legality of video recording the cops in Canada, that's an experiment for somebody with lots of time and money I'm pretty sure. As with most things cop related here, they can do whatever the hell they want at the time, somebody may make them apologize later but that will be about all.

Does EPA work for the Saudis?

Things like this make you wonder.

In partnership with green activists, the Department of Interior may attempt one of the largest federal land grabs in modern times, using a familiar vehicle—the Endangered Species Act (ESA). A record 757 new species could be added to the protected list by 2018. The two species with the greatest impact on private development are range birds—the greater sage grouse and the lesser prairie chicken, both about the size of a barnyard chicken.
Huge swaths of land that would go off limits to development are some of the nation's most productive oil and gas fields. The prairie chicken sits atop Texas's Permian Basin oil bonanza, and the sage grouse is near the Bakken Shale in North Dakota. An Interior Department report describes the impact on the sage grouse of oil and gas operations as "universally negative and typically severe," even though modern horizontal drilling leaves a much smaller footprint than in the past.

 As to drilling, according to my spies in the trade, "much smaller footprint" for a horizontal drilling rig amounts to an acre or so, most of which is where the pipes sit and the trucks drive around. Call it four or five suburban lots. Not blocks, lots. A drill rig can sit there and drill all summer long while Farmer John grows a crop on the same field.

Which brings up an interesting thing. Nobody gave a shit about the lesser prairie chicken and the greater sage grouse when a zillion acres got put under the plow to grow corn for ethanol.

Not that I mind, really. Since I'm a Canadian, and our Conservatives in Ottawa are not busy trying to tank oil extraction by any and all possible means. Anything the USA doesn't dig up for themselves they can buy from us, and pay handsomely for it as well.

If I were an American though, I'd be -pissed-.

The "drought" in California is not due to government interference because of the "endangered" Delta Smelt. No no no, you bad people, COWS did it. Yes they did, the New York Times says so.

Meat Makes the Planet Thirsty


Money quote, waaaay down at the bottom after you get past a whole lot of "hundreds of thousands of gallons per ton" bullshit is this:

It’s understandable for concerned consumers to feel helpless in the face of these complex industrial and global realities. But in the case of agriculture and drought, there’s a clear and accessible action most citizens can take: reducing or, ideally, eliminating the consumption of animal products. Changing one’s diet to replace 50 percent of animal products with edible plants like legumes, nuts and tubers results in a 30 percent reduction in an individual’s food-related water footprint. Going vegetarian, a better option in many respects, reduces that water footprint by almost 60 percent.
Feeling thirsty yet?
See, its important to understand that this drought, and all the displaced farm workers and all the social injustice in California is YOUR FAULT, America!  If you would only give up your horrible Redneck ways, particularly the disgusting practice of eating poor helpless animals and become a wholesome, morally and politically correct liberal Vegan like Mr. James McWilliams, then you could atone for your sins and reach Enlightenment.

Or possibly suffer a slow decline from protein starvation and vitamin deficiency, which is what usually happens to pinheaded liberals who become Vegans. I think the fact that there is even a word like "Vegan" in our modern lexicon is entirely due to propaganda from the Caring Left, and is yet another demonstration that there's a sucker born every minute.

Sadly, my caring liberal friends, Human Beings are omnivorous for quite a few really good reasons. Chemistry and physics are what you call "inflexible boundaries" in the sciences. A purely vegetarian diet violates quite a few of those boundaries.

Here's another inflexible boundary that's been violated: The Imperial Valley of California is THE most productive agricultural area on Planet Earth, by a looooong way. The -entire- reason there is a drought in California has nothing to do with rainfall. The reason is the Greenies have decided that fish and birds are more important than human beings, Greenies have taken over the water management systems of California AND the federal system as well, and Greenies have wasted the stored water on increased flow through the creeks and rivers instead of storing it and spending it on agriculture the way they were supposed to.

The reason there are dams and reservoirs in California at all is because the place is an uninhabitable DESERT, and without water it will return to its previous uninhabitable state. That is I believe the main goal of Greenies generally and the ones infesting the California state government in particular. To destroy human habitation wherever it is found, and return the land to its primeval condition.

No word on what they plan to do when the Russians and the Chicoms move in to the deserted territories and put up coal fired generating stations all over the place.

Ivory Tower is the cutting edge of fascism in America.

State university of Tennessee will require all students and staff to wear remote trackable ID badges at all times on campus.

He [Dr. Curtis Johnson] said the new ID card, with software managed by Stanley Security, would include a color photo, name, ID number and campus classification. On the back of each ID card would be a large magnetically encoded stripe with the wearer’s ID number and additional pertinent data.

“However, we are replacing the key FOB (for students) with ID Cards containing a Proximity Chip, along with a magnetic strip on the rear of the card that provides greater capabilities, such as access control to residence halls, computer labs, athletic events, concerts, digital media labs, Post Office Services, and several other academic locations,” Johnson said.

Why do they need remote trackable ID on every frickin' human body in the place? SAFETY!

“Our primary concern is always to provide a safe and healthy environment for all of our students, employees and visitors,” said Dr. Curtis Johnson, associate vice president for Administration, who is in charge of Emergency Management. “Safety on our campus is priority number one, and with the new policy, we want to ensure that our students, faculty and staff are safe at all times.”

 Yes, in order to make you safe, the authorities must track your every movement 24/7 and watch you every second through chip activated camera systems, and control your passage through the facility with computer controlled doors.

Nobody at this august institution of higher learning and intellectual freedom seems to have a problem with any of it, either. Because deep down they LOVE the idea. Fascists love to control the masses.

No word on how they will react when the Engineering Society hacks the lame-ass security company's encryption and clones those stupid cards for five bucks a piece. The "Proximity Chip" RFID tags in the cards are available on the open market, ten for a dollar. Add a programmer and a laminating press, instant ID card.

If I were a computer science prof in this place, I'd make it a lab unit for first year students to design and build a quick and dirty ID card hack. Extra credit if you capture the university president's ID code.
