I’ve disconnected my home alarm system and de-registered from the Neighborhood Watch.

I’ve got two Pakistani flags raised in the front  yard, one at each corner, a Gadsen flag in the middle, and the black flag of ISIS in the  center.

The local police, sheriff, FBI, CIA, NSA, Homeland Security, Secret Service and some other gov’t. agencies are all watching the house like a hawk 24/7.

I’ve never felt safer and I’m saving $49.95 a month.

More incompetence. I really find it hard to believe this administration makes so many “accidental” errors. Yes, he is a local moron, he was born in Stillwater.

WH Chief of Staff Accidentally Reveals American ISIS Hostage’s First Name

White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough accidentally revealed the first name of an American woman being held by the Islamic State (ISIS) during one of appearances on all five Sunday morning news shows.

The woman’s family and the U.S. government have been keeping her name out of the public, but in McDonough’s appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” he said. “[W]e are obviously continuing to work those matters very, very aggressively. We are sparing no expense, and sparing no effort, both in trying to make sure that we know where they are and make sure that we’re prepared to do anything we must to try to get them home. But, [redacted]‘s family knows how strongly the president feels about this. And we’ll continue to work this.”

 

Politico contacted National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan, who said, “We don’t have anything to add, other than to request again that you not use the name of the individual.”

It is known she is a 26-year-old aid worker who was kidnapped in August 2013.

His “permit” was for Colorado, not Minnesota. What an asinine argument….and really, two pounds? Come on already…

Legal battles not over for man accused in medical marijuana case

By Wendy Johnson Today at 6:24 a.m.
Colorado resident Ben Hallgren thought he would be able to move on with his life after accepting a plea agreement in Jackson County that helped him avoid jail time after being charged with possessing marijuana after traveling home to Minnesota to spend time with his dying father. But the 23-year-old Carlton native, who holds a physician’s certification from Colorado stating that marijuana use could help alleviate symptoms of his long-standing issues with irritable bowel syndrome, finds his life is still very much on hold. 
lier this week. “However, having been put on probation means I need to wait for a transfer to Colorado. For Colorado to most likely accept a transfer, I need to be living there.”

It’s the same sort of Catch 22 that has surrounded Hallgren’s case from the very start.

Hallgren was apprehended by Jackson County authorities last summer when he was driving home from Colorado to spend time with this ailing father. He was stopped for having a headlight out, but when the officer noted drug paraphernalia in Hallgren’s car and confronted him about it, Hallgren willingly surrendered just under two pounds of marijuana in both plant and edible form, for which he said he had a medical certificate in the state of Colorado.

The argument didn’t hold water with local authorities, however, since Minnesota’s medical marijuana laws have not yet gone into effect. The arrest resulted in felony charges of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance against Hallgren, to which he and his attorney, Allen Eskens of Mankato, vehemently objected.

But when Hallgren appeared in Jackson County Court on Jan. 5, he entered into a plea agreement that helped him avoid jail time, but included five years of supervised probation, in order to get the whole ordeal over with. In the days since that time, however, he’s been having second thoughts.

“What really is driving me crazy is that I took this plea deal to basically end the madness of the court case and just get home to Colorado so I can begin working and getting back to my life,” Hallgren said. “It’s a huge injustice in my opinion that my travel and freedoms have been restricted. Even if probation is transferred to Colorado, I cannot travel, go out for drinks, own firearms, apply for some jobs or even vote. It blows my mind that I lose my right to vote for being a medical patient from a different state. No other medical patient would be afraid of this happening.”

Hallgren said he has even put money down on an apartment in Colorado in order to demonstrate that he intends on living there, but he’s not certain if that will be enough to convince the court that his probation should be transferred there.

In the meantime, he’s been exploring the option of finding work in Minnesota, just to have some sort of income while he waits to go back to Colorado.

Hallgren said he is also working with his attorney to explore the possibility of rescinding his plea.

“It’s something I am interested in only because [the plea agreement] puts so much of my life on hold. I am glad there is no jail obviously, but I was planning a year of studying abroad in the future as well as trips around the West as I am an avid camper and explorer out there. Now, tabs are being kept on me for using my medicine. This whole situation is wearing down on me. I have made the mistake of reading the Internet comment boards and see the support as well as the questioning of my intentions, so it’s just a roller coaster and I’m trying to just hold on and make a plan.”

Hallgren’s attorney declined to comment on any further action, saying he and Hallgren are still in the midst of discussions on the matter.

Jackson County Attorney Sherry Haley did not return an email inquiry from the Pine Journal regarding the future status of Hallgren’s case.

 

Socialism is alive and well in Minnesota. Isn’t this what all these left wing freaks want?

This Man Will go to Jail for 6 Months if He Doesn’t Remove a Windmill from his Own Property

Posted on January 23, 2015 by John Vibes

Orono, Minnesota – Over the past year, we have been following the story of a Minnesota man named Jay Nygard, who is routinely risking jail time because he refuses to remove a wind turbine from his property. Nygard has been in and out of court over the years, and despite a short-lived victory back in October, he is now risking jail time again, and facing an ultimatum from the city yet again.

Jay owns a company called Go Green Energy, which sells wind turbines in other areas of Minnesota, but he isn’t able to do so in Orono where he lives because of permit and licensing laws. These are the same laws that are preventing Nygard from building on his own property.

The local government and a few nosy neighbors had been disputing the placement of this turbine for over 4 years, since it was built in 2010.

Jay reached out to the Free Thought Project in October to let us know that a judge ruled that he was allowed to keep the wind turbines on his property because the case was getting so much media attention and he was receiving so much support from the community. However, now just a few months later, the local government is coming after him with different threats, and a different deadline.

According to the Minneapolis City Pages, Judge Susan Robiner has ordered that Nygard be arrested if he doesn’t disassemble the turbine in his front yard by February 19.

The judge has said that the turbine produces an “intense flashing light and sound” that “no person should be expected to endure.”

However, Nygard says that the turbine is not a nuisance, and doesn’t even have a light. Nygard is not backing down though, he has refused the court’s orders for years, and he doesn’t plan on stopping any time soon.

We didn’t take the turbine down because there is no nuisance. There is no noise because the turbine has been locked down and not turning. This is my city. I can’t believe they’re doing this to me. That’s the craziest thing, all of this is happening over going green,”  Nygard told reporters.

If Jay doesn’t take the turbine down by the deadline of February 19, then both him and his wife will be jailed for up to 6 months for refusing to obey a court order.

Nygard has the right to do whatever he wants with his own property, but unfortunately in a democracy such as the United States, the property rights of an individual can be overridden according to the whims of politicians and the demands of uninvolved third parties.

“They seem to think they can control our property, and what we do on our property is their business, it’s my right to have it.” Nygard told the Star Tribune earlier this year

I’m ready to go to jail for everyone’s right. If that’s what it takes, that’s what I’ll do,” he added.

I’d bet Netanyahu would rather kick him in the balls than spit in his face..Obama is an embarrassment to our country, politicians, and the world.

Posted on Jan 23, 2015 at 11:13 AM

By The Right Scoopcaucus-obama-netanyahu-blog480

This very childish and petulant White House is now attacking Netanyahu through the media for accepting Boehner’s invitation, saying he spat in their face and now they are threatening that there will be a price to pay:

TIMES OF ISRAEL – The White House’s outrage over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to speak before Congress in March — a move he failed to coordinate with the administration — began to seep through the diplomatic cracks on Friday, with officials telling Haaretz the Israeli leader had “spat” in President Barack Obama’s face.

“We thought we’ve seen everything,” the newspaper quoted an unnamed senior US official as saying. “But Bibi managed to surprise even us.

“There are things you simply don’t do. He spat in our face publicly and that’s no way to behave. Netanyahu ought to remember that President Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency, and that there will be a price,” he said.

Officials in Washington said that the “chickenshit” epithet — with which an anonymous administration official branded Netanyahu several months ago — was mild compared to the language used in the White House when news of Netanyahu’s planned speech came in.

TIMES OF ISRAEL

This administration is out of control. They’ve always hated Netanyahu and now that Obama isn’t up for reelection any longer, they are showing it again and again.

Another sweet plea agreement…at least there will be some mo’ scum, dope, and guns off the street..for awhile.

Cloquet felon sentenced to five years for possession of a firearm

By Wendy Johnson Today at 6:18 a.m.

A Cloquet man with previous felony convictions was sentenced in Carlton County Court last Wednesday for illegally possessing a firearm.

Sidney Mathews-Bey (also known as Sidney Mathews), 47, was ordered by Judge Leslie Beiers to spend 60 months in prison, pay $210 in fines and supply a DNA sample after pleading guilty to one felony count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Two additional charges of felon in possession of a firearm were dismissed as part of the plea agreement, along with one gross misdemeanor charge of carrying/possession of a pistol in a public place without a permit and one misdemeanor charge of illegal possession or sale of a hypodermic syringe/needle.

According to the criminal complaint filed in the case, on Nov. 14, 2014, at approximately 4 p.m., Carlton County sheriff’s deputies and Fond du Lac police officers responded to the 2700 block of Higbee Road after the report of a felon in possession of a firearm.

As authorities arrived on the scene, they discovered a van backing out of a parking space at the residence. Inside the van were Mathews-Bey, Johanna Dorothy Martin-Ogima, 28, and their 7-month-old child. Officers were aware that both adults had previous felony convictions and were prohibited from carrying firearms.

As the officers ordered the couple to exit the vehicle, they immediately detected an empty holster on the rear floor of the vehicle, as well as a hypodermic needle in the panel of the driver’s door. One of the deputies also found a box of .380 ammunition in the center console area, along with a .380 or 9 mm-caliber handgun.

A check of the criminal records of both the suspects revealed that Mathews-Bey had a 1990 conviction for fifth-degree controlled substance in St. Louis County, as well as a 2003 conviction  in Wisconsin for possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute. Martin-Ogima was convicted of simple robbery in 2005, second-degree controlled substance in 2008, fifth-degree controlled substance in 2011 and escape from custody felony conviction from 2012.

Officers also found a large amount of drug paraphernalia in the vehicle consistent with the use of methamphetamine. When authorities further investigated the hypodermic needles found in several locations in the car and in a purse, they discovered some of the needles were still filled with liquid, which later tested positive as meth. A baggy that was also found contained meth as well.

Also, when Martin-Ogima was first questioned, she gave a false name to officers. Officers on the scene were familiar with her, however, and were aware that she commonly used aliases. At the point of apprehension, the Department of Corrections had a warrant for her arrest.

The two were subsequently taken into custody and arraigned.

Martin-Ogima, who has been charged with two felony counts of felon in possession of a firearm, one felony count of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance, one gross misdemeanor count of possession of a firearm without a permit, one gross misdemeanor count of giving a false name to a peace officer and one misdemeanor count of illegal possession or sale of a hypodermic syringe/needle,  has withdrawn her right to a speedy trial and her case is still working its way through the legal system.

 

It would be nice if Al took Sheriff Clarke’s advice but I’ll not hold my breath, he hasn’t done enough damage yet.

Black Sheriff to Al Sharpton: ‘Go Back Into the Gutter’

Thursday, 22 Jan 2015 06:15 PM

By Jason Devaney

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has a message for the Rev. Al Sharpton: “Go back into the gutter.”
During an interview on “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning, Clarke, who has been making a name for himself as a conservative commentator in recent months, was discussing the police shooting in Ferguson, Mo. from last summer.When asked to comment on Sharpton’s remarks in the wake of the shooting that left an 18-year-old black man dead, Clarke was blunt.

“I don’t expect anything intelligent to come out of the mouth of Al Sharpton,” Clarke said.

 

“The next intelligent thing that comes out of his mouth will be the first. Al Sharpton ought to just shut up and go back into the gutter that he came from.”

Story continues below video.

The segment was centered on Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who will reportedly not face federal civil rights charges for shooting Brown. He was cleared of criminal charges in November.

Sharpton said over and over the shooting was race-based because Brown did not have a weapon on him. But the evidence, released by St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch, showed Brown attacked Wilson several times, leaving the officer no choice but to use his gun.

Clarke also had harsh words for Attorney General Eric Holder, who traveled to Ferguson after riots and violent protests broke out in the St. Louis suburb. Holder vowed there would be a federal investigation into the shooting, even after the grand jury’s decision in November that said Wilson acted in self defense — and even after Holder’s options to charge the 28-year-old officer were limited. 

“Just take a look at the history here. This isn’t the first time that he has done this sort of thing,” Clarke said of Holder. “He sat up there for months just slandering law enforcement officers all across the nation. He’s the one in Ferguson, Mo. that brought up the racial profiling term. That we were gonna end racial profiling once and for all. He invoked that into this thing, when that was never any part of what happened in the tragedy between officer Darren Wilson and Mike Brown.

 

“This is habit now for this Justice Department under Eric Holder, and I just think it’s a shame.”

Is this getting to be a trend? Freaks.

Superior man gets 25-year sentence for child pornography

By John Myers Today at 2:45 p.m.

A 49-year-old Superior man has been sentenced to 25 years in a federal prison after pleading guilty to producing child pornography.

Roger Aleshire, 49, was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge James Peterson. He pleaded guilty in federal district court in Wisconsin on Nov. 5.

According to John W. Vaudreuil, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, Superior police detectives executed a search warrant at Aleshire’s home after getting a report that he had taken pictures of a child’s genital area.

Officers determined that Aleshire videotaped a different child’s genital area while she was using the bathroom at his home. Aleshire also has a prior conviction for sexually assaulting a minor.

In court Wednesday, Peterson said that Aleshire exploited the child he videotaped in his home for his own selfish interests. He also noted that while 25 years was the minimum sentence Aleshire was eligible for, it was an appropriate sentence given the circumstances of the case. Aleshire’s prison term will be followed by lifetime supervised release.

In addition to Superior police, other agencies that helped in the investigation include Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, the Lake Superior Forensic Technology & Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and the FBI.

 

Meanwhile, Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar participate in a “Die in” on MLK day. You wonder why I call them liars, cowards, and incompetents?

Holder announced his plan at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, in the wake of unrest in Ferguson, Missouri following a grand jury

Former Top FBI Official: Police Live In Fear Due To Obama Administration’s Ferguson Response

A former Federal Bureau of Investigation official said that the Obama administration exploited the Michael Brown shooting case for political purposes despite knowing all along that no civil rights laws were violated in the case.

The Department of Justice announced Wednesday that it would not seek civil rights charges against Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson, who was not indicted in the shooting death of Michael Brown. The case sparked nationwide anti-police protests.

Ron Hosko, who began working with the FBI in 1984 and became assistant director of the criminal investigative division in July 2012, described his view of the Obama administration’s Ferguson efforts.

“DOJ has known from the very beginning that no violation of civil rights occurred when Officer Darren Wilson shot an aggressor, Michael Brown, in self-defense,” Hosko said in a statement after DOJ’s announcement Wednesday evening. “Instead of deliberating immediately and issuing their conclusion in the fall, the Obama Administration let the embers of civil unrest burn, fanned by the rhetoric of opportunistic race dividers.”

“Perhaps the country could have found a better path — one that didn’t include painful, angry and divisive protests or framing law enforcement as impulsive racists who value black lives less than others,” said Hosko, who took over as president of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund in April 2014.

“The damage caused by this ordeal will be felt long after the Ferguson case is closed. Police officers across the country fear not only for their own safety, but also that sinister motives will be assigned to any legitimate and lawful action they take in the line of duty. The biggest victims of such risk aversion will be at-risk communities who most benefit from police patrol.”

“The Obama Administration, especially as it prepares to nominate a new attorney general, should take a long, hard look in the mirror and ask what responsibility, if any, it has for the events of the past five months. Did President Obama and top administration officials fan the flames of discontent, or did they help maintain order during a turbulent time? Did they align themselves with respected community leaders and law enforcement in efforts to demonstrate unity, or did they pander with the least common denominator of our society? Did they encourage residents of America’s inner cities to cooperate with our brave men and women in uniform, or did they remain silent as police stood alone?”
