SWAT-Team Nation
New Yorker, by Sarah Stillman

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/10/2013 5:48:05 AM

The moment the assault rifles surrounded her, Angie Wong was standing in a leafy art-gallery courtyard with her boyfriend, a lawyer named Paul Kaiser. It was just past 2 A.M., in May, 2008. Wong was twenty-two years old and was dressed for an evening out, in crisp white jeans, a white top, and tall heels that made it difficult not to wobble. The couple had stopped by a regular event hosted by the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (CAID), a red brick gallery with the aim of “turning Detroit into a model city,” and arrived to find a tipsy,

A writer in the article says its not the cop but the policies. Baloney. The individual cop loves this military stuff. Blue-suited jackbooted thugs (tm) as far as I´m concerned. I do not like what our police have become; paramilitary hoodlums with too much power and a mandate to produce revenue for the municipality.

Ditto that No. 1. Now what can we as a collective whole do to stop this? Probably very little. Look at the Herculean effort many of us put out to put a stop to Princess Caligula - the White House place holder. And for what? To be not only beaten at the polls but beaten with the IRS, NSA, and ACORN/MoveOn.org/KandyCrowfaceCrowley et. al.. type of "phony scandals"!!!

I have seen this coming for years, and thought o myself how are they getting away with it. I just finished Radley Balko´s book, "The Rise of the Wartior Cop", if you are concerned about this assault on the constitution read the book.

Poster 4 noted the gruff, military style approach of police officer. Over the past couple of decades I´ve observed that style of behavior by individual police on the beat has clearly become more prevalent. Let alone the expansion of gestapo tactics detailed in this article. We live in a police state and we are under constant surveillance five different ways. And there isn´t much that citizens can do about it except use big brothers tactics against them by arming ourselves with good cell phone cameras and dash cams.

Color me cynical, but hey, they´ve gotta spend that Homeland Security money somehow. And how many of you know former politicians (local, not just bigwigs like Rudy Guiliani) who left office and became homeland security consultants to state and local govt. entities? We´ve got one here where I live (a very, very good man btw). So now, IMO, local police look for big ticket items on which to spend the grant money and other funds that are supposed to protect us from terrorists.

IIRC there was no SWAT team in Northfield, Minn when the James/Younger crowd visited. "The People" took care of themselves. The question I ask today is: Is it "We the sheeple or We the People?" I´m afraid that 52% feel it´s We the Sheeple will do anything for someone else to keep us safe(r). They have attitudes such as "If you´re not doing anything wrong, don´t worry", "The cops have to go home at night", "The Constitution was written a long time ago" and so on. The militarization of the domestic police forces turns them into the standing army that our founders were so afraid of, and Congress has aided and abetted the issue with their largess and some horrible laws regarding the seizing of property.

#14 ~ the Director of the FBI organized what can only be called a SWAT TEAM to take down my cousin´s ex-husband in downtown Chicago in a back alley near a theatre where he and his companions sought relief from the heat.

24 people died that day due to lack of air conditioning.

S.W.A.T. teams have their place, but the trend to overuse them is alarming. Most police I´ve met are decent, dedicated servants and heroes - but their funding is more and more dependent on DHS these days. Those who control the funds, control the police. The militarization of our police is simply an end-around to bypass the 3rd and 4th Amendments, and the Posse Comitatis Act.

Having worked in law enforcement I can tell you it has nothing to do with GWB and very little to do with Obama. It began in the early 80s with the influx of military into law enforcement, the rise of the unions, the hiring of women (the majority being feminazis), making lawful activities unlawful. The whole attitude of people in law enforcement (and people in general) changed and has continued to escalate.

Following up on #4 and #11, the aggressive, "command voice" police are trained to use now has become embedded in their personalities. If one dares in my home town newspaper to criticize police policy, he is treated to a barrage of cop trolls who somehow manage to project their "command voice" into their posts. It is extremely offensive and not a little terrifying. The paper has recently done away with pseudonyms for posters, requiring a real name and town. While I recognize their attempt to bring a website that has basically been out of control back to civility, it seems that no one now wants to criticize the police, or much of anything about local government. That may be what they really wanted.

Look at what happens when ambulance service is needed. Not only does the ambulance arrive but a fire truck and crew along with about 3 to 4 teams of cops. Experienced that when need arose to use an ambulance with a COPD patient. The cops had the nerve to fan out around the house at will. Disgusting!

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 7:32:56 AM     Post Reply
Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

Goldwater was nicknamed “Mr. Conservative,” but now even liberals adore him. Robert F.

A three-year study of how network news refers to “Easter” reveals that by a margin of 500-56, reports that mention the word or “Easter season” choose a secular path linking it to candy Peeps, frilly clothes and cocktails over Christ’s resurrection. “Instead of celebrating Christ´s rising from the dead, the networks have made it about ´egg-cellent Easter fashions,´ frilly Easter bonnets and pink martinis,” said a report from the conservative Media Research Center provided to Secrets on Good Friday. The study reviewed three years of news in the two weeks before Easter and found that about 89 percent of the references to

Holder’s undermining of the

Attorney General Eric H. Holder was reminded during a recent congressional hearing that he has been held in “contempt of Congress” — for nonproduction of subpoenaed documents. He interrupted with a personal rebuke of his questioner. Later, he suggested that questioning of his leadership, nonresponsiveness to congressional oversight, and referring to the contempt vote was evidence of racism. The accusation was made a second time, perhaps as a political stratagem, by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Let’s stop there — and stop the deflection, too. No attorney general of the United States is entitled, for any reason, to escape scrutiny of Congress,

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
