Members of Congress Defiant About Polygraph Tests
Submitted by: Doug Charette

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Lawmakers serving on the House-Senate panel probing pre-Sept. 11 intelligence breakdowns have been asked to submit to lie-detector tests to learn the source of a leak, according to reports Friday."

" 'Lie-detector tests are a standard element of FBI investigations and they are meant to eliminate people from suspicion,' an official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. 'They are always voluntary.' "

KABA NOTE: When those who refuse to submit to these "tests" come under greater scrutiny and deal with accusations of "having something to hide", perhaps they will begin to pay closer attention to rights violations -- maybe a few will even begin to understand why the only way a patriot will give up his/her guns is bullets first.

"Alice Russell's granddaughter roused her from bed at 9 a.m. Wednesday, shouting, 'Nana, something terrible's happening, the police are all here.' And it wasn't just the police."

"More than 50 fire inspectors, animal control officers, social service workers, cleanup workers, even U.S. marshals rumbled into a West Side neighborhood Wednesday morning for the second Clean Sweep, a citywide initiative to crack down on quality-of-life problems."

"While cleanup crews mowed lawns and cleaned vacant lots, teams of officials went door to door, checking houses for working smoke detectors, unlicensed dogs, illegal cable television hookups and social services concerns. Organizers of Wednesday's effort said they installed 40 smoke detectors, replaced batteries in 30 others, issued 15 summons for unlicensed dogs, uncovered 20 illegal cable hookups and made more than a dozen referrals to social services and housing agencies."
 

NC: Judge Rules Durham Police Search Unconstitutional

"For the second time in a month, a Durham judge has thrown out a search conducted by the Durham Police Department. The rulings have the department re-evaluating its procedures."

"When neighbors complain about illegal activities, Durham police often go door-to-door looking for the problem."

" 'So when the complaint comes in, it's our job to come out,' said Lawrence Campbell, public defender."

"Called 'knock and talks,' the practice is commonly used by police in what are considered to be problem areas. There are no search warrants involved. Officers simply knock on doors, talk to residents and ask to be let inside to search the home."

"Thursday, Judge Ron Stephens called a search of an apartment on Trinity Avenue unconsitutional."
 

"Tips for protecting yourself against an attacker"

Here we have another "self defense" report from a television station:

"Recent abductions of girls across the country has sparked renewed concern over personal safety. KATU's Corinna Allen spoke with some teens today who are taking action to reclaim their safety and maximize their chances of escaping an attack."

They go on to list a few ways to help in the event of being attacked. And some of the tips make sense -- but they've failed, as usual, to mention the most effective, most efficient, most affordable, easiest to carry and use form of self-defense ever devised: the handgun. And this report was aired on an Oregon news station, where open carry is legal and a concealed carry permit is relatively easy for a lawful, peaceable person to obtain.

The operative phrase: negligent reporting.
 

Gun-Violence Prevention and the PAC Option: One State's Experience

"It requires commitment and hard work, but a group of Colaradans has proven that a state political-action committee, or PAC, can be a formidable tool for reducing gun violence. Formed in 2000 to fund the campaigns of Colorado legislative candidates who said they favored stronger gun laws, Colorado Ceasefire is gearing up for this fall's elections intent on exceeding their debut fund-raising efforts and maintaining a strong defense against the gun lobby."

KABA NOTE: If you are realize that "gun violence prevention," to liberty's enemies, means "making it harder for lawful people to keep and bear arms", ... you're not alone. Were that same bankrupt mindset applied to the prevention of unwanted pregnancies, all females from puberty onward would wear satellite-monitored chastity belts, and those who engaged in unauthorized sex would be subject to federal prosecution. Prior restraint is prior restraint, and there's no Constitutional authority for it.

"Some gay and lesbian residents of the Lewiston area are aiming for better self-defense by taking up handgun shooting."

They call themselves the 'Pink Pistols.' "

"It's a national organization that works to educate gays on gun safety and ownership and encourages members to carry concealed weapons."

"The national group, launched in 2000, has 32 chapters in 23 states. The Palouse chapter started forming in the past few months."

"In conjunction with another shooting club, they hold outings to go over scenarios dealing with potential hate crimes."
 

NY: Shooter acquitted in slaying - but charged with illegal possession of a handgun

"A 19-year-old man acted in self-defense when he killed one man and wounded a second during a drug-related shootout in northwest Rochester, a jury said Wednesday."

"Monroe County Court jurors acquitted Christen Dowdell of second-degree murder, second-degree assault and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon in the Jan. 30 death of Timothy M. Fruster and wounding of Prince Trotter."

"But jurors convicted Dowdell of fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor, because Dowdell admitted on the witness stand that he illegally possessed a 9mm pistol used in the shooting, said his lawyer, Joseph S. Damelio."

KABA NOTE: Some people who call themselves liberty advocates would frown on this self-defending shooter because his case involved one of the handful of drugs from which the federal government doesn't overtly and directly profit. We pose the following questions to such a naysayer:

1) Does someone who chooses to put something into his own body that the government doesn't like have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? A right to self-defense? If not, which clause in the Constitution validates such a wholesale stripping of basic rights?

2) When your firearm is banned like a handful of drugs are banned and you are demonized as a criminal for mere possession, would you like to be hated by people who call themselves liberty advocates?

"The 19-year-old son of Bryan Ferry, the singer, was arrested by armed police officers after approaching Tony Blair's constituency home in the middle of the night with pro-hunting posters."

"Otis Ferry, an amateur whip with the Middleton Hunt in Yorkshire and a passionate supporter of hunting, was intending to place Countryside Alliance posters on the walls of the building at Sedgefield, Co Durham. He was challenged by two officers after passing through the security gates at 4am and arrested when he refused to give his personal details."

"Yesterday, after being released without charge, Mr Ferry said: 'I had seen on the news that pro-hunting protesters had been targeting MPs' homes and thought you couldn't get better than Tony Blair's home.' "

"Officials are scrambling to improve airport and in-flight security in Norway after two shocking examples of recent negligence. Both cases left them embarrassed and promising to sharpen up."

"In the latest case, a door leading from an insecure area into the tax-free shop at Oslo's airport at Gardermoen was left standing open for several days."

"Anyone could have wandered in, and then straight onto international flights, without having to go through the security control station outside the international terminal."

"In another case revealed earlier this week, a woman managed to board a flight for domestic carrier Braathens at Alta in northern Norway carrying no less than six handguns, one of them loaded. She also had 225 bullets in her carry-on bag, according to newspaper VG."

"From the start, police have called the shooting an accident. It happened, officials have said, as [Police Officer Anthony] Gonzalez led a team of four officers single-file across the front yard of a house believed to be a drug den. As Colon exited the house onto the front steps, another officer tripped over a tree root and pushed Gonzalez, who inadvertently let off three rounds. One struck Colon in the head."

"Colon's girlfriend, Lydia Sierra of Patchogue, who was sitting in her car outside the house, and another witness who lives across the street, have disputed the department's version of the incident. They said Gonzalez was standing still when the shots were fired."

"A Union City police officer has been arrested by Fayette County sheriff's deputies for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend at her east Fayette residence Wednesday morning."

"Samuel Howard Goodall of Union City is being held without bond at the Fayette County Jail on four charges: aggravated assault, aggravated sexual battery, kidnapping and battery (family violence). Police say he viciously beat the victim in the head and face after forcing his way into her residence."

" 'He stripped her of her clothing and sexually assaulted her,' Maj. Bruce Jordan of the Fayette County Sheriff's Department testified during a court hearing Thursday afternoon."

"Goodall, who was wearing a handgun at the time, also threatened to kill the victim, Jordan said. During the altercation, Goodall showed the victim the gun which was hidden under his shirt and placed his hand on it to intimidate her, Jordan said."

"Showing photos of the victim to Magistrate Court Judge A.K. Melear, Jordan said one of the marks on the victim's face matched up to a ring that Goodall was wearing at the time of the incident."

"The victim was choked so roughly that a blood vessel in one of her eyes burst, Jordan testified."

"The Lincolnshire Echo has started a campaign to Ban Replica Guns following an increase in armed incidents in the county over the past five years."

"In 1997-98, the county police's armed response unit was called out to 29 incidents, with this figure rising to 486 in 2001-02. In the first four months of this year, the unit has been out 260 times."

"More than half of these incidents involved replica guns and after a Lincolnshire Echo reporter purchased a fake firearm for £30 from a local toy shop, the paper is now calling for replicas to be banned."

"The ballbearing replica gun bought by the reporter even carried the warning: 'Please bear in mind that because your replica weapon is so realistic, running about in a public place or having them to hand in a public place or displaying them in an anti-social way could well precipitate a very dangerous situation with the armed police.' "

"Echo reporter Ben Rooth, who is leading the campaign, said: 'Since April 1 there have already been 260 incidents of gun crime.' "

" 'It is escalating out of all control and speaking to workers of the armed response unit, it appears that between 50-80 per cent [of crimes] involve a replica gun. It made total sense to campaign for a ban.' "

KABA NOTE: These Brits truly do appear confused enough to ban kitchen knives baseball bats.

"A REVOLVER and a 12-bore shotgun are among scores of weapons handed into Lothian and Borders Police as part of a two-month replica gun amnesty."

"The deadly arsenal was revealed as police said 100 firearms have been handed in as the weapons surrender reached the halfway stage."

"But the force revealed that most of the weapons surrendered are real guns capable of firing live bullets."

"They said 87 real guns were handed in by members of the public and only 13 replicas or imitations."

"The cache of dangerous weapons included 32 shotguns, most of which were 12-bore shotguns or .410 garden guns, 29 air rifles and 19 air pistols which were either .22 or .177 air rifles. A mini shotgun and an 8mm revolver were also taken and destroyed by police."

"People handing in weapons will not generally risk prosecution during the amnesty, but the police will look into the individual circumstances of any real guns handed in."

Like almost every 'civilized' country following the 'progressive' turn of the 20th century (before the late 19th century, nobody had ever heard of a passport, and people were freer to 'vote with their feet'), Germany required individuals to carry officially issued identification."

Polls have shown that 79 percent of the public and 80 percent of pilots favor the legislation. Nearly every pilot and flight attendant association supports the measure. Newspaper editorial boards all over the country including The Washington Times and Charleston Post and Courier have written in favor of arming pilots."

"Some months ago, in an article in this publication titled The Rationale of the Automatic Rifle, I quoted some oral history from war veteran and career Navy man Bob Menard.

He had been Virginia State Champion prior to moving to the Granite State.

An Oregon anti-gun reporter uses the fact that a gubernatorial candidate in Alaska carries a firearm to make fun of basic rights and those who exercise them:
-------
" 'I need something compact,' Ulmer told the newspaper, after checking out some hardware in a Yukon Valley gunshop. Presumably, it complicates your message to appear at a debate with a bazooka."

"You could check all the campaign-reform groups that produce reports every two weeks on how to fix our politics, and you won't find any concluding that what we really need are armed candidates. Right now, Congress is arguing over whether to let airline pilots carry guns, but here we have a politician who couldn't make it through airport security."

"From the perspective of people who spend lots of time asking candidates questions they might not want to answer, the image of pistol-packing politicians is less than reassuring. The next time a politician asks a reporter if he could rephrase that question, it might happen a little quicker."

KABA NOTE: While the disarming of any lawful, peaceable person isn't right, this situation might be chalked up to "cosmic justice" -- now these police officers know what it's like to be treated like second class citizens whose rights exist at the whim of the government.

"Violent criminals who prey on San Francisco's residents and visitors have a better chance of getting away with their crimes than predators in any other large American city."

Are We 'Federal Children,' owned by the Government?

"In 1921, the federal Sheppard-Towner Maternity Act created the birth 'registration' or what we now know as the 'birth certificate.' It was known as the 'Maternity Act' and was sold to the American people as a law that would reduce maternal and infant mortality, protect the health of mothers and infants, and for 'other purposes.' "

"One of those other purposes provided for the establishment of a federal bureau designed to cooperate with state agencies in the overseeing of its operations and expenditures. What it really did was create a federal birth registry which exists today, creating 'federal children'."

"This government, under the doctrine of 'Parens Patriae,' now legislates for American children as if they are owned by the federal government. Through the public school enrollment process and continuing license requirements for most aspects of daily life, these children grow up to be adults indoctrinated into the process of asking for 'permission' from Daddy government to do all those things necessary to carry out daily activities that exist in what is called a 'free country'."
