Anarchist Hypocrisy – Planned Recruitment Center Protest (Torches & Cages?)

Posted by Admin on March 12, 2008

It has come to my attention (Credit to FReeper ConcreteBob) that an anarchist/anti-war/anti-recruiting group in Pittsburgh – Pittsburgh Organizing Group (POG – OrganizePittsburgh.org) is planning to have an old-fashioned medieval “torch march” on March 19, 2008! Their announced plans are to march carrying torches to the recruitment station, and “If the station remains open, we intend to evict it and everything inside of it, occupy the location, and transform it into something useful for the community.”.  They are also planning to bring with cages to place the military recruitment officers inside of.

Now, while it’s commendable to peacefully protest and stand up for what you believe in – no matter how crazy others may think you are – to conspire to commit felony destruction of federal (taxpayer owned) property and the kidnapping of Federal (Military) Officers while in the course of duty – not to mention a host of other various felony and criminal charges they could incur – is the height of stupidity, not to mention hypocritical. My guess is that they are counting on police being there to “hold them back” as they’ve alluded to in their announcement (convenient isn’t it?).

Below is a screenshot of their announcement which was posted on their website on February 20, 2008;

Wouldn’t it be interesting if they were allowed to go forth with their plans instead, and then force them to deal with the realities of their stupidity? As one poster, FReeper TaxControl, suggested over on FreeRepublic.com; the Recruiters should just protest vociferously that they don’t want to go into the cages, but let themselves be put inside. Then once inside, these military officers should pull out their cell phones and call the FBI to report the kidnapping of a federal officer in progress.

Then let the Feds deal with these punks who think they are above the law. Because, as I said, peaceful protesting is one thing – a right of these citizens that I fully support even though I don’t agree with them – destruction of federal property and kidnapping is another.

As another FReeper, Captain Rhino, pointed out if this group’s plans are successful there is a whole list of felonies (state & federal) that they will be guilty of including, but obviously not limited to; Felonious Tresspassing – felony (State & possibly Federal), Destruction of Federal Government Property – felony (Federal), Assaulting an officer in the course of duty – felony (Federal), Unlawful Detention – Felony (State & Federal), Kidnapping – felony (State & Federal). I’m guessing that in today’s atmosphere there are probably a few more things they could charge these people with – even up to treason (for abducting a military officer during a time of war — and no, I’m not positive on that, but it would make sense would it not?).

What’s intriguing about their plans – besides the fact that they are conspiring at this point to commit a host of federal felonies – is that it’s in direct violation of their group’s stated policy on planning actions of this sort as well. In a page on the group’s website entitled, “Hey POG why did you DO That? A Statement on what POG does and does not organize“, they state the following;

“As a group we absolutely never organize anything involving destruction of property or physical harm to human or non-human animals.”

Hmmm… someone better mention that to the person at POG who planned this event…

I really do hope the FBI will consider sending a clear message to this group – and all like them that believe NON-peaceful protest is acceptable as long as it’s aimed at those who they have pronounced as “criminals” – interestingly without due process which I’m sure they will insist upon if they are indeed arrested.

One clue for these people — it’s not exactly going to endear you to the public (some of whom may even agree with you) if you insist on protesting in this manner. Even most liberals I know would be telling you the same exact thing.

Al-Qaeda Declares War Against India

Posted by Admin on June 9, 2007

AL-QAEDA DECLARES JIHAD AGAINST INDIA


The Associated Press is reporting the following:


Al-Qaida declares holy war on India
By Aijaz Hussain, Associated Press Writer | The Boston Globe | June 9, 2007

SRINAGAR, India –A group claiming to represent the al-Qaida terror network declared a holy war on India over its partial control of the divided Himalayan region of Kashmir, Indian officials said Saturday.

A statement and video was sent Friday to the Current News Service, in Srinagar, the main city of India’s Jammu-Kashmir state, in which a masked man standing next to an automatic weapon read the declaration.

“We declare righteous holy war against India on behalf of God the great in which Jammu and Kashmir will be the launch pad for holy war in India,” said the statement signed by Abu Abdul Rehman al-Ansari, purportedly the chief of al-Qaida Fil Hind or al-Qaida in India.

Al-Qaida Fil Hand had not communicated anything since July of last year when they announced their establishment. The statement released is said to be 5-pages long and is being investigated by police who will also attempt to establish its veracity. The Director General of Police Gopal Sharma is advising people not to panic. Read the rest of this entry »

Amnesty to FELONS? and more…

Posted by Admin on June 6, 2007

Thanks are due to Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) for exposing yet another lie about the AMNESTY bill currently being debated in the Senate.

Today, the Senate voted against an amendment that would prevent the GRANTING OF LEGAL STATUS TO FELONS — including those who are subject to court orders calling for their deportation!

This is just the latest proof to come out that exposes the lies President Bush and backers of this Illegal Immigrant AMNESTY bill have told to the American people… Read the rest of this entry »

Solutions besides Amnesty…

Posted by Admin on June 4, 2007

I wrote the following in response to someone on a website who said it’s not enough to simply complain about the ‘bi-partisan’ Shamnesty bill that our elected officials in Washington are attempting to ram down our throats.

This is a rough draft, and I plan on ‘cleaning’ it up, but here are a few of the solutions I propose instead of these new immigration laws which — no matter what spin they put on it — equals amnesty for illegal immigrants.

There are many parts of this bill besides the amnesty part that should cause serious concern among U.S. Citizens, legal immigrants, and would-be immigrants who are waiting to come here from around the world legally.  I’ll try to address those issues soon… Read the rest of this entry »

SPECIAL REPORT: Airplane Crashes into a Manhattan Apartment Building UPDATE: Yankee Pitcher Cory Lidle May Be Among The 2 Known Deceased, plane registered to Lidle

Posted by Admin on October 11, 2006

UPDATE – 4:45 p.m. US/Central

PILOT OF CRASHED PLANE MAY BE YANKEE’S PITCHER CORY LIDLE; FAA: PLANE REGISTERED TO LIDLE; PASSPORT REPORTEDLY FOUND IN STREET

Yanks’ Lidle Believed Among 2 Dead in Plane Crash – FAA: Plane Registered to Pitcher, Passport Found in Street” – Ch. 2 WCBS-TV (CBS) – CBS Corporation – New York, New York, US – 11 October 2006 – 5:32 p.m. US/Eastern

QUOTE:

(CBS/AP) NEW YORK A small plane with New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle aboard crashed into a 50-story condominium tower Wednesday on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, killing at least two people and raining flaming debris on sidewalks, authorities said. There was no immediate confirmation Lidle was among the dead.

A law enforcement official in Washington, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Lidle was on the plane. And Federal Aviation Administration records showed the single-engine plane was registered to the athlete, who just days ago — after the Yankees’ humiliating elimination from the playoffs — told reporters that he was getting his pilot’s license.

The official said he did not know whether Lidle was at the controls; at least one other person was aboard the four-seat aircraft.
