KTNV [Las Vegas], by Jacqui Heinrich

Las Vegas, NV -- The government shutdown is being felt close to home for some locals. They say they´re being forced out of private homes on Lake Mead because they sit on federal land. Joyce Spencer is 77-years-old and her husband Ralph is 80. They´ve been spending most of their time in the family ice cream store since going home isn´t an option. The Spencers never expected to be forced out of their Lake Mead home, which they´ve owned since the 70s, but on Thursday, a park ranger said they had 24 hours to get out. "I had to go

Mrs. Spencer had to go to town to buy her husband jeans and undershirts because "he forgot his pants".

The good news is that the National Park official who ordered residents out of their homes will get a promotion for "making the shutdown as difficult as possible for ordinary people"

This is about as perverse an interpretation of law that I can imagine.

This must be ignored or violated by ordinary people and challenged in court at the earliest opportunity.

Just clicked over to this story original article, and scrolled down a bit. There´s a photo of a sign saying ´´Congress, do your job and give us our national parks back.´´

Evidently there´s some sort of organized protest of Lake Mead boaters being planned. I didn´t bother with that story, because I wanted to address that sign first.

To the originator of that sign and the wording thereon: Check your premises. ´´Congress´´ IS doing its job - it´s doing EXACTLY its job.

Your professionally preprinted sign (gee, who does that? /s) needs to be redone, addressing your message to the person REALLY responsible for this - our D-in-C in DC.

When you knowingly put your home on land that does not belong to you, you are always at risk. The Parks Service is being harsh, unreasonable and maybe even acting in violation of the leases. But, the land doesn´t belong to the homeowners. What a sad situation.

It is a small matter, but I happened to notice that Navy played a football game against the Air Force Academy Saturday, yet the Coast Guard game against a private college team was cancelled. The rationale -
a perverted Administration, just as the action to force the people in the article out of their home. We are seeing the results of the election of a tyrant into office and his minions are, for the most part, senseless, in my opinion.

How very strange. The revolution is being lead by the Greatest generation and others in a similar age group. It isn´t by storming a beach, but simple civil disobedience. And it is a powerful reminder that the goobernment isn´t about serving those that consent but instead to oppress those that withdraw their consent. With jobs being non existent for the nation´s youth, one would think they would be leading the revolution. Instead, it seems that group just wants their participation trophy. The goobernment isn´t going to win this one as more and more people challenge the petty oppressions of the goobernment.

It´s going to start soon. Somewhere, a small group will unite to stand and fight against this tyranny - and probably die - in objecting to these acts of oppression and terrorism.

The government and its enslaved press will claim they are ´hoodlums´ or anarchists, or criminals in some way, but it will be obvious what they are fighting for and why they died, as proud, free Americans.

...And a new revolution, for better, or for worse, will begin.

There is a move underway, mostly in Western states where the Federal Government owns large tracts of land, to have the states take control over these lands within their contiguous borders. As these types of incidents prove beyond doubt, the Federal Government is the most inept, inconsiderate, and despicable stewards of any lands. Those in their employ are nothing more than robotic "brownshirts" who do the bidding of their higher ups for fear of retribution. This all looks vaguely familiar to anyone who knows anything about history in the 20th century. America could do quite well without the Department of Agriculture, the National Fish and Wildlife Service, The National Park Service, and the US Forest Service. Let the states where those resources lie take care of them and manage them.

What concerns me the most is it appears to me that the repubs go along with obama on this. If not why haven´t they formed a group and went to the WW2 memorial and breached the barricades challenging obama´s storm troopers to arrest them. If they did this all other sites would have to relent and let visitors in.

MEXICO CITY – Mexico´s government confirmed late Sunday that the leader of the Knights Templar Cartel was killed in an early-morning shootout with troops despite being declared dead by authorities in 2010. Tomas Zeron, head of the criminal investigation unit for the federal Attorney General´s Office, said the identity of Nazario Moreno Gonzalez had been confirmed 100 percent by fingerprints, but added that tests would continue. Moreno´s death was one of the more bizarre twists in Mexico´s assault on drug cartels, in which two others of the country´s most powerful capos have been captured in the last year without a shot fired.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today.

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey.

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief
