Not all that familiar w the specifics of Joker’s take down. At what point did he receive the throat injury? I don’t see any throat injury in these leaked snaps.

So what if the kid is a reprehensible person. Maybe the trooper is the best guy in the world when off duty. Either characterization is irrelevant to the matter at hand, which is what happened at the check point. The video evidence is crystal clear. Police state apologists are deluding themselves about this case.
July 8, 2013 at 1:40pm
I cannot condemn the people defending the trooper or dismissing the “smart @$$” kid. Those people are simply victims of a society moving away from individual liberty, and towards an acceptance of blind obedience to authority, which is troubling.
Yes, of course the kid was out to make a point. That IS the point. He’s acting from the founding father’s mindset concerning state authority and individual liberty. Watch it, Expose it, Oppose it!
His premise was – Roll into this check point while recording, comply to the point of what is legally required, and let the chips fall were they may. The young man never swore, raised his voice or attached the character of the trooper. He was polite yet earnest. He simply asked the trooper legal questions, which ensure were developed to protect our constitutional rights.
I contend the trooper was also making a point, you do not question my authority. The trooper then became aggressive, belligerent and overstepped his bounds to drive the point home. Both had points to make, but only the trooper acted illegally.
Is it not obvious that the young man did in fact make his point crystal clear? Of course it is.
Does the FBI not run entrapment operations where they drive the illegal activity in order to catch the bad guys that they setup in the first place? Yup.
Why is it okay for the state to make random checks of drivers for illegal activity, but it’s not okay for a citizen to make a random check to make sure the state is

Are there any other current happenings that make you highly suspicious of the government? Please limit any reply to under 100 happenings for the sake of bit space. ; )

Do you suppose sovereign citizens have a training where they identify marxist megalomaniacs as a danger to the constitution, and that those persons should be carefully watched? Just wondering.
That's kind of like asking if it's necessary to teach a mouse to watch for an owl.
April 9, 2013 at 5:19pm
Really uncle Joe? A newspaper in NY recently published a list of all the CC permit holders in 3 counties using FOIA, but the feds can be trusted with the registration of all guns. C’mon man, that doesn’t pass the straight face test. The state is not our friend and they can’t be trusted.

“What we’re proposing is not radical, it’s not taking away anybody’s gun rights.”
No, it’s just setting up the mechanism to take gun rights away.
“…necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
Could the intent of the constitution by more clear than that?
 March 28, 2013 at 1:10pm
I came to this story late, and I did not read all 600 something comments, but I read a hundred or so.
This article doesn’t debunk a thing. For instance the astonishingly weird performance of Mr Palmer. Folks, I saw him laughing and then getting into character w my own eyes. The article mentions it, but then has no explanation for it. How is that debunking?
Assassinating the character of people who have serious questions about a serious happening is not debunking. It’s suppressing. Why?
March 28, 2013 at 12:33pm
And there just happened to be a guy fleeing the direction of the school wearing similar outfit as Lanza. And the coroner just happened to resign his post until they changed the rules so pediatric autopsies didn’t have to be released to the public a year before the shooting? Seriously, does any of this make sense? It’s public record check it out.
When you are trying to get to the bottom of a suspicious situation a good place to start is asking yourself, Cui Bono. Who benefits? So who benefits here? The statists rolled out the gun grab rhetoric within moments of the shooting.
I’m not claiming anything. I’m just saying the whole thing is suspicious. But, we can’t even raise questions because of the horror of the massacred children. How ’bout that?
March 28, 2013 at 12:17pm
Yeah, but she’s not alive. Does that seem a bit convenient?
March 28, 2013 at 12:15pm
Why print cartridges? You can press out “actual” rounds close to a hundred an hour rate with two hundred dollars worth of gear. Yes, this truly is a great country. Amen.
March 28, 2013 at 12:09pm
This “report” comes out the same day as Obama hosts families of the Newtown shooting?
That’s coordination. C’mon man, it’s kabuki theater folks. I think most people here recognize this.
Can you please do us all a favor? Can you gently ask any of the zombies in your life if they think the timing related to any of this shooting stuff seems a bit manufactured, and then why that might be?
Of course the timing is not coincidental. It's an effort to restore the momentum of a gun-control movement that has lately been flagging. Very smart. That is how you get things done.
LOL. "This is how you get things done". It's nothing more than propaganda, and nothing will "get done". Nothing that will be complied with anyway. And I'd love to see you come force me, child. I'd love for you to give me a reason to dump a magazine into you. PLEASE give me a reason. Heck, I don't even need a reason, just show me those yellow teeth.
A whole magazine? You must be a terrible shot.
Lloydy look up "fire for effect". Better yet, oogle "mad minute". But yeah, you seem to be the kind to put a stick in the face of a rabid honey badger and coo.
March 28, 2013 at 11:09am
@13:35 Cody’s throwing up his double U’s. How ’bout that?
March 19, 2013 at 12:52pm
The number of National Instant Checks (NIC) checks just about breaks a new record every month for years now. But, they know gun ownership is declining because of phone surveys? Really?
Would you ever tell a stranger calling you out of the blue that you own guns? Have any of you gun owners received such a call? Hmmm, I guess you weren’t counted then. C’mon man. Does any of that pass the “straight face” test?
Not to mention the fact that more guns (scary evil) in the hands of less people (racist wackos) fits the statist narrative to a T. As in, “of course we need to register all guns and their owners in order to know what they are up to because whatever it is, it must be a threat to the Union.”
That’s profoundly Ironic considering they won’t give the people any rational answers as to why they are militarizing our domestic agencies. Answers for me but not for thee!
March 18, 2013 at 2:28pm
Because no one is that bat crap crazy but you? Golly, where is an American Nigel Farage who can stand up and marginalize this woman for the fool she is?
I would LOVE to hear Nigel's response to her idea!. He has a way with words and his description of the stupidity of her suggestion would be most entertaining and probably hilarious.
March 18, 2013 at 2:13pm
Unwanted pregnancy is failure. Not minor failure like forgetting to put out the garbage, but the profound failure to take seriously the responsibility for creating a human life. Abortion is the convenient “fix” to extricate the involved individuals from the consequences of such profound failure. It’s a sweeping under the rug so to speak. It just is.
Should people really be celebrating such abhorrent behavior? What kind of message does that send about taking responsibility for ones actions?
Remember, shame is a powerful shaper of behavior. Is the effect of this type of celebration to reduce the inherent shame created by snuffing out life because you couldn’t control yourself? You bet it is, and it’s by design!
What could be more shameful than that?
March 18, 2013 at 11:42am
I’m in the video production biz. I can tell you that in a big time production like the Bible there is no such thing as a mistake, chance, or accident about what something looks like on screen, especially a pivotal character like Satan. The production new exactly what they wanted the Satan character to look like.
March 14, 2013 at 3:35pm
What’s the first thing the bad guy says to his abducted victim? “Stay quiet!” Why? Because that’s the only way the bad guy can get away with his crime.
So what if Cruz is brand new to the Senate. He’s got every right, heck, it’s his duty, to remind his fellow senators when they stray off the path set forth in the constitution.
Finally, who’s really being condescending when someone calls someone else condescending? For the love of free humanity, please please stay strong Senator Cruz no matter how many entitled feathers you ruffle.
In my little microcosm world of politics, very local, this was the tactic used in 2010 with the election of a tea party candidate: mockery of his lack of experience, snickering, face making, out and out shouts of "You don't know what you're doing," or "When you're here as long as I have been blah blah blah..."
It seems clear that they're a little worried, I hope so. Hoping for no more politics as usual.
What they are hoping for is an effective disarmament of the American people before the manufactured Federal Reserve collapse of the economy.
Yes, they are worried because they are effectively "all in" with their strategy.
Personally, I think the current administration has severely underestimated the resolve of the American people willing to fight back.
@TSUNAMI-22, good ol' American resolve to fight back, from your mouth to God's ears. I'm in.
Perhaps we need to remind Senator Leahy that, while "new" to the Senate, Senator Cruz was : Solicitor General of Texas 2003-2008; while a law partner, he was a U.S. Supreme and Nat'l. Appellate Court litigator; Director of the office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission; Assoc. Deputy Attorney General at the U.S. D.O.J.; Adjunct Prof. of Law at University of TX School of Law Austin 2004-2009 taught US Supreme Court litigation; law clerk to Wm. Rehnquist, Chief Justice of the United States - perhaps Leahy and others should pay attention.
@tsunami...I thoroughly agree with you, they have severly underestimated the resolve of the American people to remain the greatest nation ever created in the history of the world.
When you are talking about shredding the constitution and bill of rights you need to be reminded what it means. Remember Ted Cruz was Solicitor General for Texas and argued in front of the Supreme Court at least twice.
The "you are new" comment screams for term limits. This guy isn't fresh out of college or right off the farm.
@TGAYLE, Good job. Thanks for the info. Keep on keeping on. Don't grow weary or fainthearted.
IF it was Leahy, I'm sure you enjoyed the lecture and if you weren't always so Condescending to everyone else, perhaps you could learn from an intelligent and knowledgeable young Senator from Texas who in reality probably knows so much more than an old man who's worn out and doesn't seem to uphold our Constitution and Bill of Rights for the citizens of AMERICA.
There's not much difference between Pat and Dianne. They're both old, both senile, both full of crap and both old flaming douche bags not to mention both are treasonous.
They were saying that seniority rules and Cruz must go through the pecking order. Feathers always get ruffeled when he new guy comes in and gives them the finger and refuses to bend over and drop them. His carrer is toast. You have to start at the bottom and kiss every old politicians A_ss that is stuck in your face.
DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO FORCE A CIVIL WAR LIKE THEY DID IN 1859. THEY BELIEVE THEY CAN DESTROY THE NATION AND THEN REBUILD IT INTO A MARXIST REPUBLIC LIKE NORTH KOREA.
We must fight to prevent this. There are more of us than them.
I hope cruz can keep resisting beanner ,he did promise to demoncrats he would change the tea party candidets into lefties.
"..you haven't been here that long.."
And some have been there WAY TOO LONG. Like a bad weed that just keeps growing and destroying the natural habitat. It's time for the CONSERVATIVES to KEEP ROARING.
“I’m tired of these condescending…” seemingly the same person can heard saying, trailing off [at about the 22 second mark]:
Well, maybe if Dems weren't such friggin Marxists and Communists, we wouldn't be condescending to you... Just a thought, progs.
I am starting to understand the debate rules hereabout. When AvengerK deletes my post, it automatically means I have bested him. I am OK with that.
You know - I just realized. The progressives are not just trying to disarm us of our firearms - they're trying to disarm us of our strong, Constitutionalist representatives. May they lose in both endeavors. We need both to defend our rights.
Add your comments
Anyone with a facebook page, hammer these guys if you want. These people are delerious. They are praising Swinestien for her little display this morning, saying she took him to the wood shed, etc, lol these are the useful idiots we are dealing with.
Do not cross Cruz, or we will get the 9" nails for dem and repub alike.
I am sick of the incompetence at best from Owebama on down.
My money on the mocking came from the diaper wearing stuart smiley aka Al Franken. He had a smug look of disgust on his face. Most likely jealous because his IQ is about 80-90 points lower than Senator Cruz's.
The senator that got thrown off the "secret intellegence committee"
because he couldn't keep a secret!!
He kept telling everything he knew to try and seem relevant.
What a dumb azz.
@ TSUNAMI_22 - There are several factors in play here. Firstly, the order of things. The economy right now is all but crashed, and then there after, they want to come after guns, all the while folks who own them are either planning future hunting trips to feed their families, or learning how to do so.
Secondly, I am not rich, so there is a chance you can tell me how horrible the rich are and how much it is their fault I am where I am, and maybe...just maybe, I will believe you because I don’t know, but...if I own a gun, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt the only individual that will ever find out is one meaning me harm, not innocent children or whatever.
The truth is, our country is vastly stronger than was anticipated by these...people...By now, they had thought it would have already been done, but it is still hanging in there, and only because we still believe. The second conservatives stop caring, and throw in the towel, walk away form their jobs and business to live off of the land, free phones and all the rest of it go away.

Sounds like classic Alynski to me. Maybe b o actually has done something to earn his pay since he got elected. He's always been an Alynski teacher, maybe being elected potus just means a huge pay raise and perks and a larger more powerful classroom to teach it to.
oath of office! An oath is indivisible, it cannot be in part true and in part false.
It is my assertion that most, if not all of these senators are GUILTY of perjury of oath of office and conspiracy!!
18 U.S.C. 1621 in any declaration, certificate, verification, or statement under penalty of perjury, willfully subscribes as true any material matter which he does not believe to be true; is guilty of perjury and shall, except as otherwise expressly provided by law, be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both. This section is applicable whether the statement or subscription is made within or without the United States.
The false statement statute, 18 U.S.C. 1001, is closely akin to the perjury statutes. It outlaws false
statements in any matter within the jurisdiction of a federal agency or department, a kind of
perjury with oath prohibition.
A false declaration in the form established by 26 USC 1746 can result in federal perjury charges.
MISPRISION. (1) a contempt against the sovereign, the government, or the courts of justice, including not only contempts of court, properly so called, but also all forms of seditious or disloyal conduct and leze-majesty;
18 USC Sec. 241 CONSPIRACY AGAINST RIGHTS
42 USC Sec. 1985 CONSPIRACY TO INTERFERE WITH CIVIL RIGHTS
One of the big problems right now is that we don't know whether it was a Rino or a Democrat
saying these things. In his own way McCain was saying the same thing about Rand Paul after
his filibuster. And of course, we all know what the general feelings are about gun control as far
as the Dems are concerned.
Sober and 22,
I got your six.
The most obvious problem in the senate/politics is most have been there to long. How refreshing is it to Sen. Cruz, I would suggest longevity in politics is more the problem then the solution!
Ruffle feathers!!! Pluck 'em!!!!
The old guard likes to have a senior-freshman system. That is not the way it works. My guy who just went to the senate is equal to the progressive that has been there 30 years.
Agree 100%! Well said!! They are scared to death a new group of senators is gonna upset their sweet deal they have made for themselves!!
Cruz is new and yet he shows more sense than 9/10's of the idiots in Washington.
He hasn't been there long enough to have become a useless moron!
Cruz was not sent to the Senate by the voters of Texas to sit down, shut up, or follow the edicts of the Democrats. He is a very smart lawyer who clerked for a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. He also believes in the Constitution and Bill of Rights, unlike the left wing liberals in charge of the Senate.
Clinging to God and our guns!
The wheel of time spins round and round.. Just saying.
@Turkey....About that pecking order you speak of and having to kiss feathered azzes on the way up to the vaulted position enjoyed by old timers in gov...I raise chickens, turkeys, all kinds of fowl and while the senior hens usually are at the top of the pecking order, it really all depends on how tough the new girl is when introduced to the flock. Quite often the younger will give way to the older, but if the younger is of a mind not to be bossed around and can prove how tough she is, she takes the place of the senior hen. In other words, it all depends of how much you want to be heard and how hard you are willing to fight for your cluck (voice in this case) to be heard.
just because he is a junior senator, I think he can run circles around the elite rhino's and is refreshing to hear someone challenge their hypocricy
I hope Cruz, Paul, Lee, Johnson, Toomey all go back to their offices and toast themselves and each other for pissing those crusty OLD marxist butts off! I know I would! Proud to be a conservative!
These old entrenched liberals are like small condescending children.
Run them and the media off the virtual cliff.
Well, Leahy, if you know so much about the Constitution, why don't you respect and obey it? P.O.S.
Patrick Leahy could best serve his constituents by standing in front of a wall.
What's all this about these senators claiming special privileges because they've been there forever??? Term limits!!!
Since when does "I'm offended" become a rational response to a question?,unless you can claim some divine write to be above question. Which is typical of arrogant people like the liberals who have established among themselves to have entitlement to rule.
Great example. I'll give you another one. Why do women stay in abusive relationships? Among the several reasons, one strong reason is because she's afraid to talk about it. As long as she stays silent, he's protected. It's even worse with MALE victims because they're ashamed to talk about it!
Silence protects the abuser, in the home or in the government.
fight for my rights im in also,seems its alright for these pecker heads to defend them selves but not us. Lets do it now!!!!
It matters not that Ted Cruz is a newly minted senator. He is orders of magnitude smarter and damned sure more patriotic than the socialist old fool Leahy.
I have to agree with Desert Speaks, there is a matter of law to be considered. Our rights are not up for grabs by the politician with the biggest mouth or who thinks they have a majority. Our rights do not belong to the government or any social group, they belong to us individually, not collectively and they are not dependent upon popularity; nor are they subject to the designs of social engineering. Government is subordinate to the unalienable rights enumerated in our declaration, constitution, and bill of rights. Whether a politician or group are willing or not to recognize that our natural rights are granted by God is not relevant, our nation IS founded upon these principles. For those politicians who are engaged in making policy that seeks to undermine our rights or to empower their self or government to the ends of subordinating those rights, I remind you that you are subject to prosecution under the law for high treason against the people whom you were elected to serve. So by all means, please continue revealing your motivations and ambitions through legislative treason and we the people will reward your efforts with impeachment, prosecution, and imprisonment.
Amen. Courage, character and truth. Anymore of that and the left is in trouble.
March 12, 2013 at 1:36pm
The real world is what we make of it. Will finds a way. What are you doing to create more will, besides giving up? Not a personal attack, simply an observation on your post and an innocent question.
March 12, 2013 at 1:20pm
Creating more and better jobs?
There are only two damn things the government can do that will lead to more and better jobs. Lower taxes and less regulation. That’s it, period, over and out. It just is folks.
Is there anyone seriously talking about doing those two things in Washington? I’m not talking lip service, I’m talking serious political will that has a chance to go somewhere. The answer is No, of course not. So what can we deduce from this observation?
That everything you are seeing in Washington is political theater, cronyism, pocket lining, and backside coverage. Or in other words public posturing for personal profit.
Let’s not kid ourselves. That’s a crystal clear explanation of the situation, and we’re allowing it.
Ctzn, You're just being too ''demanding'' in your expectations from this administration.
Doubt if either one of what you suggested ever gets discussed in any meetings. Are
they still actively looking at how to lower the true number of unemployment? Or how
to get folks off of welfare and into a job? (I don't think so, either.)
