Legal – Jurisprudence Reform

Our court system is seriously screwed up.  The primary [purpose of court seems to be to get the criminal off scott free rather than determine guilt or innocence.  Far too often past record of persons brought to trial are not considered, use of “diminished capacity” is overused (drunk, drugged, mentally incompetent, etc).  You’ll like some, hate some, but they should start a conversation, and a good conversation will probably end up with the best of these suggestions being made better, and the worst might give someone an idea for something better in the long run. Maybe we need a few … Continue reading

Oathkeepers Update on Bundy Ranch

Oathkeepers.org posted this update late yesterday. The founder, Steward Rhodes along with other Oathkeepers are still at the ranch.

Remnants of BLM’s recent sojourn here are still present, such as the lights they had put up at their “field-headquarters” and no doubt we are under surveillance of all kinds, but there is no overt, visible massing of federal law enforcement. We are, however concerned … Continue reading

It’s Not About Turtles, It’s About Water

The following rather lengthy video doesn’t tell us much that we didn’t already know, except for two key things.  At about the 55 second mark the news anchorman at NDTV quotes a former land broker who worked in that area for nearly 2o years and issued a statement saying: “It’s not about the turtles, it’s about water. There are developers working for military contractors that want that land and water for mining weapons grade minerals for industry. They want to sell the land by the highway for real estate development because it’s close to I-15 and the Bundys have been refusing … Continue reading
