  2. Casbolt has to be kept alive. He is a bridge. He actually has personal ritual anecdote of both Aquino and Savile, meaning he links the satanic elements of the U.S. and UK. He is not alone, there are others still in silence yet. His on cam interviews with Miles Johnston can be rambling, segues into the irrational. But there are nuggets, the street address in Reading is specific. Savile was the Dick Clark of England, with his own weekly top 40 show, a vampire ambassador of the dark belly of the music industry. Being able to connect dots between the two communities is a rarity. Most have refused and prefer to take it to their graves. Riveting UK television trilogy from 2009-11 based on true events. Part one, 1974. Part two is 1980 and Part three is 1983. This is what inspired HBO True Detective, season 1. Sean Bean is superb. "all for the beautiful carpets"
  3. "...Don't you do it Keith, don't do it...."
  4. He only gave him an hour, it was rushed. No phone calls in. Could easily have done a full show. Good piece in the Gate book review, some pictures It was an absolute debacle, almost by diabolical design, which many of us knew already. But the depth of the greed is shocking. The movie was a whitewash, 50 percent bankrolled by the Stones. It was far worse than the film editing depicted no food concessions, no water. Definitely adding to my reading list!
  5. I spent a lot of time thinking about this comment. There are Vulcan-type women (as in Star Trek) out there who do understand their motivations almost all the time. My last real-life girlfriend was about 99% Vulcan and 1% psycho. My ex-wife is about 95% Vulcan and 5% psycho. That's a big deal for to me realize because I just figured out who my type is. Those Vulcan-type women are rare but not that rare. I know who I'll ask out on a date if I need one because I know an attractive Vulcan-type woman who seems to like me.
  6. Today
  7. I miss her, too.
  8. Someone you never read because you were too caught up in your own posts and yourself. /hth
  9. I stopped listening because half the story was being left out. The guy woud, or should be responding to Knapp's questions, the pick up after a few seconds at mid answer.
  11. This is from the comments. Moral inversion seems to the the number one job of the media these day. The Left has a penchant of inverting morality to advance its regressive agenda. That's why Vinson is now the villain, and Keith Scott an innocent martyr. We've seen it in the war on Islamic terror, Arab-Israeli conflict, transgender bathrooms, Iran's unprovoked aggression and nuclear weapons program. Right becomes wrong, wrong becomes right, perpetrators become victims, victims are demonized.
  12. no tickey no pillaging!!
  13. The world lost someone amazing when she left us for the final mystery. She was one of a kind and will always be missed.
  14. who is sat
  15. We really should appreciated each other more. Especially the folks who share their real life experiences.
  16. It's easy to search for facts when facts matter. Not so much when they don't. Security footage from the Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington appears to show Cetin entering the mall twice on Friday night: once unarmed, then approximately 10 minutes later, when he returned with a rifle.
  17. The amount of open carry gun owners in Oregon is rising. So long as the weapon is visible, its legal. Since Martin is huffing and puffing the same tune, here are some facts he can consider. Crime and Guns Basic to the debates on gun control is the fact that most violent crime is committed by repeat offenders. Dealing with recidivism is key to solving violence. 71% of gunshot victims had previous arrest records. 64% had been convicted of a crime. Each had an average of 11 prior arrests. 1,2 63% of victims had criminal histories and 73% of that group knew their assailant (twice as often as victims without criminal histories). 3 74% of homicides during the commission of a felony involve guns. 4 Most gun violence is between criminals. This should be the public policy focus. Myth: Criminals buy guns at gun stores and gun shows Fact: One study 5of adult offenders living in Chicago or nearby determined that criminals obtain most of their guns through their social network and personal connections. Rarely is the proximate source either direct purchase from a gun store, or even theft. This agrees with other, broader studies of incarcerated felons. Fact: Another city-wide study, 6 this one in Pittsburgh, showed that 80% of people illegally carrying guns were prohibited from possessing guns, and that and a minimum of 30% of the guns were stolen. Fact: Only about 60% of guns in the possession of respondents were obtained by purchase or trade. Other common arrangements include sharing guns and holding guns for others. 7 Myth: Guns are not a good deterrent to crime Fact: Guns prevent an estimated 2.5 million crimes a year or 6,849 every day. 8 Most often, the gun is never fired and no blood (including the criminal’s) is shed. Fact: Property crime rates are dropping (especially burglaries). The chart shows the legal handgun supply in America (mainly in civilian hands) to the property crime rate. 9 Fact: Every year 400,000 life-threatening violent crimes are prevented using firearms. Fact: 60% of convicted felons admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they knew the victim was armed. 40% of convicted felons admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they thought the victim might be armed. 10 Fact: Felons report that they avoid entering houses where people are at home because they fear being shot. 11 Fact: 59% of the burglaries in Britain, which has tough gun control laws, are “hot burglaries” 12 which are burglaries committed while the home is occupied by the owner/renter. By contrast, the U.S., with more lenient gun control laws, has a “hot burglary” rate of only 13%. 13 Fact: Washington DC has essentially banned gun ownership since 1976 14 and has a murder rate of 56.9 per 100,000. Across the river in Arlington, Virginia, gun ownership is less restricted. There, the murder rate is just 1.6 per 100,000, less than three percent of the Washington, DC rate. 15 Fact: 26% of all retail businesses report keeping a gun on the premises for crime control. 16 Fact: In 1982, Kennesaw, GA passed a law requiring heads of households to keep at least one firearm in the house. The residential burglary rate dropped 89% the following year. 17 Fact: A survey of felons revealed the following: 18 74% of felons agreed that, “one reason burglars avoid houses when people are at home is that they fear being shot during the crime.” 57% of felons polled agreed, “criminals are more worried about meeting an armed victim than they are about running into the police.” Myth: Private guns are used to commit violent crimes Fact: 90% of all violent crimes in the U.S. do not involve firearms of any type. 19 Fact: Even in crimes where the offender possessed a gun during the commission of the crime, 83% did not use or threaten to use the gun. 20 Fact: Fewer than 1% of firearms will ever be used in the commission of a crime. 21 Fact: Two-thirds of the people who die each year from gunfire are criminals being shot by other criminals. 22 Fact: Cincinnati’s review of their gang problem revealed that 74% of homicides were committed by less than 1% of the population. 23 Fact: 92% of gang murders are committed with guns. 24 Gangs are responsible for between 48% and 90% of all violent crimes. 25 Fact: Most gun crimes are gang related, and as such are big-city issues. In fact, if mayors in larger cities were more diligent about controlling gang warfare, state and nationwide gun violence rates would fall dramatically. Myth: 40% of Americans have been or personally know a gun violence victim Fact: This data was from an unpublished survey conducted by a political research organization. Their own footnote reads “Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research for the New Venture Fund (Aug. 2011). Note, this is not publicly available data.” 26 Myth: Interstate transportation of guns defeats local gun control Fact: The BATF reports that the average age of a traced gun is 11 years 27, meaning that most guns moving from state to state were transported when legal owners moved. Fact: Fewer than 5% of traced guns in California, many of which were not crime guns, came from neighboring Nevada and Arizona. 28 Myth: High capacity, semi-automatics are preferred by criminals Fact: The use of semi-automatic handguns in crimes is slightly lower than the ratio of semi-automatic handguns owned by private citizens. Any increase in style and capacity simply reflects the overall supply of the various types of firearms. 29 Myth: Banning “Saturday Night Specials” reduces crime Fact: This was the conclusion of the Johns Hopkins University Center for Gun Policy and Research – and it is wrong. They studied firearm homicide rates from Maryland after passage of a “Saturday Night Special” ban in 1998. It seems the firearm homicide rate has not subsided and remained between 68-94% higher than the national average through 2008. 30 <> Fact: Even banning guns does not slow down criminals. In the U.K., where private ownership of firearms is practically forbidden, criminals have and use guns regularly, and even build their own. One enterprising fellow converted 170 starter pistols to functioning firearms and sold them to gangs. Hundreds of such underground gun factories have been established, contributing to a 35% jump in gun violence. 31 Myth: Criminals prefer “Saturday Night Specials” 32 Fact: “Saturday Night Specials” were used in fewer than 3% of crimes involving guns. 33 Fact: Fewer than 2% of all “Saturday Night Specials” made are used in crimes. Fact: “What was available was the overriding factor in weapon choice [by criminals].” 34 Myth: Gun shows are supermarkets for criminals Fact: Only 0.7% of convicts bought their firearms at gun shows. 39.2% obtained them from illegal street dealers. 35 Fact: Fewer than 1% of “crime guns” were obtained at gun shows. 36 This is a reduction from a 1997 study that found 2% of guns used in criminal offenses were purchased at gun shows. 37 Fact: The FBI concluded in one study that no firearms acquired at gun shows were used to kill police. “In contrast to media myth, none of the firearms in the study were obtained from gun shows.” 38 Fact: Only 5% of metropolitan police departments believe gun shows are a problem. 39 Fact: Only 3.5% of youthful offenders reported that they obtained their last handgun at a gun show. 40 Fact: 93% of guns used in crimes are obtained illegally (i.e., not at gun stores or gun shows). 41 Fact: At most, 14% of all firearms traced in investigations were purchased at gun shows. 42 But this includes all firearms that the police traced, whether or not they were used in crimes, which overstates the acquisition rate. Fact: Gun dealers are federally licensed. They are bound to stringent rules for sales that apply equally whether they are selling firearms from a storefront or a gun show. 43 Fact: Most crime guns are either bought off the street from illegal sources (39.2%) or through straw-man purchases by family members or friends (39.6%). 44 Myth: All four guns used at Columbine were bought at gun shows Fact: Each of the guns was either bought through an intermediary or someone who knew they were going to under aged buyers. In all cases there was a purposeful criminal activity occurring and the actors knew they were breaking the law. Myth: 25-50% of the vendors at most gun shows are “unlicensed dealers” Fact: There is no such thing as an “unlicensed dealer,” except for people who buy and sell antique — curio — firearms as a hobby (not a business). Fact: This 25-50% figure can only be achieved if you include those dealers not selling guns at these shows. These non-gun dealers include knife makers, ammunition dealers, accessories dealers, military artifact traders, clothing vendors, bumper sticker sellers, and hobbyists. In short, 50% of the vendors at shows are not selling firearms at all! Myth: Regulation of gun shows would reduce “straw sales” Fact: The main study that makes this claim had no scientific means for determining what sales at the show were “straw sales.” Behaviors that Dr. Wintemute cited as “clear evidence” of a straw purchase were observational only and were more likely instances of more experienced acquaintances helping in a purchase decision. No attempts were made to verify that the sales in question were straw sales. 45 Myth: Prison isn’t the answer to crime control Fact: Why does crime rise when criminals are released from prison early? Because they are likely to commit more crimes. 67.5% were re-arrested for new felonies or serious misdemeanors within three years. Extrapolating, those released felons killed another 2,282 people. 46 Fact: 45% of state prisoners were, at the time they committed their offense, under conditional supervision in the community – either on probation or on parole. 47 Keeping violent convicts in prison would reduce violent crimes. Fact: Homicide convicts serve a little more than half of their original sentences. 48 Given that men tend to be less prone to violent behavior as they age, 49 holding them for their full sentences would probably reduce violence significantly. Fact: Los Angeles County saw repeat offender and re-arrest rates soar after authorities closed jails and released prisoners early. In less than three years, early release of prisoners in LA resulted in: 50 15,775 rearrested convicts 1,443 assault charges 51 518 robbery charges 215 sex offense charges 16 murder charges Fact: In 1991, 13,200 homicides were committed by felons on parole or probation. For comparison sake, this is about half of the 1999 annual gun death totals (keep in mind that gun deaths fell from 1991 to 1999). Myth: Waiting periods prevent rash crimes and reduce violent crime rates Fact: The “time-to-crime” of a firearm is about 11 years, making it rare that a newly purchased firearm is used in a crime. 52 Fact: The national five-day waiting period under the Brady Bill had no impact on murder or robbery. In fact, there was a slight increase in rape and aggravated assault, indicating no effective suppression of certain violent crimes. Thus, for two crime categories, a possible effect was to delay law-abiding citizens from getting a gun for protection. The risks were greatest for crimes against women. 53 Fact: Comparing homicide rates in 18 states that had waiting periods and background checks before the Brady Bill with rates in the 32 states that had no comparable laws, the difference in change of homicide rates was “insignificant”. 54 Myth: 86% of Americans, 82% of gun owners favor universal background checks Fact: Those statistics came from a pair of surveys reported by gun control group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, who has been caught stacking survey responses by polling left-of-center mailing lists. Myth: Gun makers are selling plastic guns that slip through metal detectors Fact: There is no such thing as a ‘plastic gun’. This myth started in 1980 55 when Glock began marketing a handgun with a polymer frame, not the entire firearm. Most of a Glock is metal (83% by weight) and detectable in common metal and x-ray detectors. “[D]espite a relatively common impression to the contrary, there is no current non-metal firearm not reasonably detectable by present technology and methods in use at our airports today, nor to my knowledge, is anyone on the threshold of developing such a firearm.” 56 Incidentally, Glocks are one of the favorite handguns of police departments because it is lightweight, thanks to the polymer frame. Myth: Machine guns 57 are favored by criminals Fact: In the drug-ridden Miami of 1980, fewer than 1% of all gun homicides were with machine guns. 58 Fact: None of over 2,220 firearms recovered from crime scenes by the Minneapolis police in 1987-89 were machine guns. 59 Fact: 0.7% of seized guns in Detroit in 1991-92 were machine guns. 60 Myth: Corrupt dealers sell almost 60 percent of crime guns Fact: Only 0.5% of the reported traces were for original purchase three years of less before the trace was conducted. 61 Thus, 99.5% of retailer sales had left their control long before the gun was traced (and many traces are not for crime guns). Fact: The average “time to crime”, the time between the retail sale of a firearm and its use in a crime is 11 years. A firearm can change hands and travel far in six years.

  18. Has anyone mentioned the rifle? He didn't carry it in with him, I heard them mention it on the radio, then no follow up. Seems suspicious to me.
  19. That is a 'Family Man' in amerkan black culture, a hero to the community!!! Intermission:
  20. You tell 'em, Fluffy!
  21. You have to admire the tenacity of the Powers that Be in whipping the race war into the next un-civil war.
  22. Nail, meet hammer.
  23. Protest Thugs and the Real Evil in Charlotte Nothing says “family man” like assaulting women and children. September 23, 2016 Keith Lamont Scott was scum. He had been convicted of assault with a deadly weapon in two different states and convicted of assault in three states. He had been hit with “assault with intent to kill” charges in the 90s. His record of virtue included “assault on a child under 12” and “assault on a female.” The media spin; “Family and neighbors call Scott a quiet ‘family man.’” Nothing says “quiet” like “assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill” and nothing says “family man” like assaulting women and children. Keith Lamont Scott, the latest martyr of Black Lives Matter and its media propaganda corps, was shot while waving a gun around. He had spent 7 years in jail for “aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.” This vicious monster’s career of crime ended when he was shot by Brentley Vinson, an African-American police officer, protecting himself from the latest rampage by this “quiet family man.” Brentley Vinson is everything that Scott isn’t. The son of a police officer, Brentley dreamed of following in his father’s footsteps. He used to organize his football team’s bible studies and mentored younger players. Former teammates describe him as a “great guy” with “good morals.”*His former coach calls him a “natural leader” and says that, “We need more Brent Vinsons… in our communities.” Except that Obama, Black Lives Matter, the media, the NAACP and everyone else going after this bright and decent African-American officer has decided that what we really need are more Keith Lamont Scotts. And the streets of Charlotte are full of “Scotts” throwing rocks at police, assaulting reporters and wrecking everything in sight in marches that are as “peaceful” as Scott was a “quiet family man.” That’s what Hillary Clinton wanted when she tweeted that, “We have two names to add to a long list of African-Americans killed by police officers. It’s unbearable, and it needs to become intolerable.” What exactly should be intolerable? An African-American police officer defending his life against a violent criminal who happened to be black? Should black criminals enjoy a special immunity? The greatest victims of black criminals are black communities. Whom does Hillary Clinton imagine she’s helping here? Instead of standing with heroic African-American police officers like Vinson, she’s championing criminal scum like Scott. Tim Kaine, Hillary’s No. 2, wants us to think about Scott’s family. We should do that. Scott’s brother announced on camera that all “white people” are “devils.”*Timmy should check to see if he can get an exemption from white devildom.* But if there are any white devils, it’s men like Kaine and women like Hillary who enable the worst behavior in a troubled community while punishing those who try to help. Every time the lie about “peaceful” protests is repeated, another black community becomes unlivable. Twenty police officers have been injured and National Guard troops have arrived to deal with all those “peaceful” protests. Protesters chanted, “Black Lives Matter” and “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” before throwing things at police and then peacefully shooting each other. Stores had their windows broken and decorated with Black Lives Matter graffiti. A Walmart was peacefully looted and trucks were torched. A police officer was peacefully hit by a car. Another was peacefully hit in the face with a rock. Mobs besieged and attempted to break into hotels. Reporters were attacked and a photographer was nearly thrown into a fire. White people were targeted by the racist Black Lives Matter mob and assaulted. But all these peaceful rioters are probably just quiet family men too. The peaceful protests are as big a lie as the “bookish” Keith Lamont Scott reading a book in his car. Police had no trouble finding a gun. They couldn’t have found Scott anywhere near a book. The only thing he could have done with a book is try to beat someone to death with it. Maybe a child. Scott wasn’t a quiet family man; he was a violent criminal with a horrifying vicious streak. He and the rest of the Black Lives Matter rioters remind us of the monsters that we need dedicated police officers to protect us from. The spin on what happened between a deranged black criminal and a courageous black police officer fell apart as fast as the Freddie Gray case, where black police officers were targeted and a city terrorized over conspiracy theories relating to the accidental death of a drug dealer. The claims of racism are absurd. Not only was Scott shot by an African-American police officer, but Charlotte Police Chief Kerr Putney, who has taken the lead in defending him, is also African-American. Are we supposed to believe that an African-American police officer and an African-American police chief are racists or that these two black men took the lead in a genocidal conspiracy to kill black men? That’s the laughable premise of the racist Black Lives Matter hatefest that alternates between “Stop killing us” street theater and violent assaults on police officers, reporters and anyone in the area.* But the truth doesn’t matter. Black Lives Matter rioters are still chanting, “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” long after the Michael Brown lie fell apart. They’re holding up signs reading, “It Was a Book.” *The lie is backed by some of the biggest media corporations in the country, by $130 million from George Soros and the Ford Foundation, by Barack Hussein Obama and by Hillary Clinton. These are the malign forces destroying Charlotte, as they trashed Baltimore. On the ground there are the vulture community organizers of Black Lives Matter, funded by the left, who parachute in to organize race riots, behind them are the reporters who sell the spin live on the air and the photographers who capture glamor shots of the racist rioters, and after them come the lawyers of the DOJ out to ruin, terrorize and intimidate whatever law enforcement survived the riots. They did it in Ferguson and a dozen other places. Now they want to do it in Charlotte. They want to do it because they hate white people and black people. They hate peace and decency. They hate the idea of people getting up in the morning and working for a living. They hate the idea of good officers, white and black men and women, like Brentley Vinson, who genuinely believe in doing the right thing. They want unearned power. They demand unearned wealth. And they thrive on destruction. This is the real evil in Charlotte. And we need to stand up to it. From the ghetto to the manors of the liberal elite from burning cars to pricey restaurants in exclusive neighborhoods, it plots against us. It is a lie repeated a million times. Sometimes the lie is simple. Other times it’s sophisticated. But the way to fight it is to begin with the truth. The truth is that Keith Lamont Scott was a violent criminal who came to a bad end because of his own actions. Just like Michael Brown, Freddie Gray and too many other Black Lives Matter martyrs to count. The truth is that everything Black Lives Matter does reminds us of why we need police officers. The truth is that this is not about race, but about those who want to build and those who want to destroy. It’s about the difference between Brentley Vinson and Keith Lamont Scott. It’s about what kind of country we want to be. Is it a country that celebrates a young black football player who chose to follow in his father’s footsteps, who organized bible study and helped others, who risked his life to keep other people safe. Or is it one that celebrates Keith Lamont Scott, who assaulted a woman, a child and anyone else he could get at, who terrorized three states and died as he lived. Obama and the left want a nation of Keith Lamont Scotts. But now it’s our turn to choose.
