Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

Self-Defense Shootings up, Crime down in Detroit

On Tuesday morning, March 25, two young men trying to break into a home on Detroit’s west side aroused the homeowner who went outside to see what was going on. The confrontation led to a fight which led to the homeowner drawing his sidearm in self-defense and shooting them. Both attackers died at the scene. This brings to 10 the number of fatal self-defense shootings so far this year. This is ahead of the 25 justifiable homicides recorded in Detroit in all of 2012, the latest year for which data are available.

At the same time violent crime in Detroit continues to decline, just as the new police chief, James Craig said it already had back in January. Following the shooting, Craig said at a press conference:

 It does appear that more and more Detroiters are becoming empowered. More and more Detroiters are getting sick of the violence. I know of no other place where I’ve see this number of justifiable homicides.

People who are faced with a dangerous situation are taking matters into their own hands. We’re not advocating violence; we’re advocates of not being victims. We’re advocates of self-protection. We want people to be safe.

This should be a message to those who continue to perpetuate violence on Detroiters that enough is enough … Detroiters are fed up and they are taking action.

A 35-year veteran law enforcement officer, Craig started his career in Detroit as a beat cop, moved to Los Angeles, then to Portland, Maine, on to Cincinnati, and then back to Detroit as chief of police. Upon taking office last June he announced his intention to do something about Detroit’s spiraling crime rate:

US to give up its Control of the Internet

Last Friday the Department of Commerce announced that in October 2015 it will relinquish all remaining control over the “root” of the internet to an obscure but vital private non-profit organization. That group, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), promises to create a new structure that will keep the internet

Momentum Gaining to Allow Firearms on Campuses

Jim Irvine, chairman of the Buckeye Firearms Association in Columbus, Ohio, expressed confidence that Ohio will shortly join the growing number of states allowing concealed carry permit holders (CCW for concealed-carry-weapon) on school grounds and campuses around the country. Following the massacres [note the change in language here: these were no random shootings. They were deliberately carefully planned attacks by criminals] at Virginia Tech, Columbine High School and Sandy Hook, legislators have been conflicted as to the best way to protect students from

War on Drugs Claims SWAT team Member Using No-Knock Warrant

Hank McGee should be thankful that he didn’t wind up dead or dreadfully disabled in the no-knock raid on his trailer house in Texas early Thursday morning, December 19. Instead he reacted in fear that he was being robbed, grabbed his pistol and shot and killed one of the SWAT team members.

On Thursday, February 6th, a grand jury in Burleson County declined to indict him for murder, the first time in recent memory such a verdict had been handed down, according to McGee’s attorney, Dick DeGuerin. DeGuerin said McGee thought someone was

Plastic Water Bottle Ban Proposed for San Francisco

The popular three-term President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, David Chiu, unveiled his proposal on Tuesday which would ban the sale of plastic water bottles on city property. Initially the ban would only apply to sites where there are already alternative water sources like drinking fountains, but would eventually apply to all events on San Francisco property. By 2016 the ban would also apply to outside vendors as well.

Said Chiu:

“Saint” Mandela? Not so fast!

Wednesday, 03 July 2013

Written by Bill Jasper

President Barack Obama has compared him to George Washington. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews heralded him as “perhaps the world’s greatest hero.”

The Las Vegas Guardian Express dispensed with the “perhaps,” declaring in headline: “Nelson Mandela World’s Greatest Hero.”

Others have christened him “the greatest man of the 20th century.” Many revere him as “the savior” of South Africa. School children worldwide read books, write essays and sing songs about him, and watch movies extolling his virtues and heroic accomplishments.

As we write, the 94-year-old Mandela has been hovering near death for days, the subject of hourly news updates and the beneficiary of tearful prayer vigils worldwide. With the announcement of his death, the eulogies will

The IMF threatens a dangerous “wealth tax” proposal

The populist notion of taxing the rich once again turned up in the International Monetary Fund’s “Fiscal Monitor Report” released in October, but scarcely anyone noticed. In an arcane chart-laden 107-page long report that was competing at the time with the government shutdown, the failing rollout of Obamacare, and other concerns, crises and disasters, why would they?

Here’s why.

Third Colorado State Senator Resigns to Avoid Being Recalled

In anticipation that the recall movement that had successfully ousted two other Colorado state senators over gun control issues this past summer was about to overwhelm a third, state senator Evie Hudak abruptly resigned on Wednesday, rather than face a recall. By resigning, under Colorado law her successor must be appointed by the Democrat party, thus preserving a one-vote margin in the senate. If she had been ousted, she likely would have been replaced with a Republican.

The recall movement claimed it had 18,900 valid signatures which it was going to submit to the Colorado state’s secretary on Monday, and it was becoming more and more obvious that Hudak

Trayvon Martin was no innocent

On Friday President Obama, in an informal briefing in the Rose Garden instead of the usual press room of the White House, reiterated his earlier statement that Trayvon Martin, the victim in the Sanford, Florida shooting in February 2012, “could have been my son.” Said Obama:

You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son.  Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.

And then he expanded on his remarks
