Does It Matter To YOU if You Are Free?

October 6, 2015

Does it matter to you if you are free to do as you please? To shop? To talk online or on the phone? To spend your money as you wish? To have a job of your choice? To be able to get into your vehicle and travel as you please? To worship as a Christian without repercussion from our government? To be able to defend yourself against criminals?

As an Independent voter, I trust NO ONE, especially the MSMs to give you the TRUTH. The propaganda is evident, on display both on cable/satellite as well as on the internet.  The art of Dialectic Process is evident. Only the subverted individual would assume everything they see and hear is factual.  If you have a peaked interest in a topic, research it, vet it.  Do not trust one internet site to give you what you what to see or hear.  Go to at least two or three places to confirm or deny what you are being fed on a daily basis. Be an individual; not a sheep.

An excellent example is here:

IF you and/or your family is confronted by criminality, would YOU be able to defend yourself and your loved ones? A rape whistle won’t work, a call to 9-11 won’t be able to help for a period of time ( you are the FIRST responder), yelling or screaming won’t work…then what?  Responsibility comes with gun ownership; training and safety first.

President Obama: Give Janet Napolitano a Newspaper or Have Her Communicate With The Head Of Border Patrol!

This is unbelieveable! The Head of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, the one who couldn’t even control the illegals coming over the border in Arizona, now says this:

Napolitano: Violence in Mexico Not Yet Spilling Across U.S. Border.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano acknowledges rising violence in Mexico, but says while U.S. officials are preparing for that violence to spill across the border it has not yet.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano denied Thursday that the latest drug-fueled violence in Mexico has spilled across the border, even as local officials throughout the country see troubling signs of Mexican gang activity.

The Department of Justice reports that 230 U.S. cities, from Anchorage to Atlanta have a cartel or Mexican gang presence.

A February report from the Cato Institute found a “troubling number of incidents” in which Mexico violence was spilling across the border.

It also noted increasing violence against U.S. citizens traveling in the southern neighbor.

Federal authorities say more that $14 billion in illegal drugs are smuggled into the U.S. every year through Mexico.

And Phoenix, the capital city of Napolitano’s home state of Arizona, recorded 370 kidnappings last year, placing it only second to Mexico City worldwide, though it wasn’t immediately clear how many of the kidnappings can be traced to Mexican drug activity.

Napolitano acknowledged Thursday that violence in Mexico “has risen to very high levels.” But she said that although the U.S. is planning for the potential for violence to move north across the border, it hasn’t happened yet.

“Right now it has not (crossed the border). But it is a contingency we have in mind because it could,” the former Arizona governor told reporters.

“We have contingency plans should violence spread into the United States.”

The situation in Mexico is dire.

The country sees almost daily assassinations and kidnappings of government and police officials, battles frequently break out between soldiers and drug gangs involving small-arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades.

Experts warn that the violence already is on a pace to break last year’s record of nearly 6,000 people killed by narco-terrorists in Mexico.

“What we have seen in Mexico is a very sobering trend. … At the current pace, for 2009 we are looking at something in the area of 8,000 dead. It is a carnage that is alarming already,” Ted Carpenter, a Cato Institute foreign policy expert, said at a forum Thursday. “Mexico has already displaced Colombia as the kidnapping capital of the world … and the violence is spilling across the border into the United States. American citizens, including law enforcement personnel, have been targeted by the drug cartels for assassination.”

President Obama discussed the latest drug violence during a meeting last month with Mexican President Felipe Calderon, whose country already has deployed 45,000 troops to fight the cartels.

The final stimulus plan Obama signed into law this week contained about $600 million to help bolster border security and curb gun flow to Mexico — 95 percent of which come from the U.S.

The situation is so unstable the Obama administration’s new director of national intelligence warned Congress last week that the Mexican government is losing control.

“The corruptive influence and increasing violence of Mexican drug cartels impedes Mexico City’s ability to govern parts of its country,” Dennis Bair told the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Even more alarming, the U.S. Joint Forces Command said in recent report that Mexico rivals Pakistan as the country most at risk of collapse. The report said Mexico’s “politicians, police and judicial infrastructure are all under sustained assault and pressure by criminal gangs and drug cartels. … Any descent by Mexico into chaos would demand an American response based on the serious implications for homeland security alone.”

Then read this: Border Patrol Agents Shoot Man as He Runs Over Fellow Officer

EL PASO, Texas — U.S. Border Patrol agents shot a man described as a suspected drug smuggler in the New Mexico desert Thursday night, federal officials said Friday.

Doug Mosier, a Border Patrol spokesman in El Paso, said agents were trying to stop a pickup truck headed north along a desert ranch road about 11 p.m. Thursday night, when the driver ran over an agent.

At least one other agent at the scene opened fire, hitting the driver at least once.

Following the shooting, Mosier said, the driver of the truck crashed the vehicle along N.M. 9, about 25 miles west of the border crossing at Santa Teresa, about 14 miles west of El Paso.

The agent and the driver, neither of whom have been identified, were both taken to a hospital in El Paso. Mosier said the agent suffered nonlife-threatening injuries.

No details on the driver’s condition were available Friday.

The truck is believed to have crossed the border along a patch of rough desert littered with scrub brush and little else. Mosier said there are about 48 miles of vehicle and pedestrian fencing in the area, though it is unclear exactly where the driver of the truck came across the border.

Todd Hulsey, an FBI spokesman in Albuquerque, said agents from the El Paso office were at the remote scene overnight and the FBI’s field office in Las Cruces is investigating the alleged assault on the agent.

The Las Cruces FBI office was was writing an affidavit for a federal arrest warrant charging the driver with assaulting a federal officer and drug trafficking, he said.

The FBI does not know who the driver is because he carried no identification, but believe he is a Mexican national, Hulsey said.

The truck contained 1,500 pounds of marijuana, wrapped in 25-pound bundles that filled the interior of the Ford pickup “so that only one human being could fit inside of it,” Hulsey said.

Mosier said Thursday night’s incident illustrates the danger agents face along remote stretches of the border.

“It is always a dangerous formula when you have a smuggling episode and desperation on the part of suspected smugglers,” he said.

It’s not the first time an agent has been run over while trying to stop a vehicle in the desert.

Agent Luis Aguilar was working in southeastern California’s Imperial Sand Dunes last January when he was hit and killed by a suspected marijuana smuggler. Jesus Navarro Montes was arrested earlier this month in Mexico near Zihuatenejo in an operation coordinated with the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service. The U.S. government is seeking his extradition on drug charges.

So according to Janet Napolitano; even though there have been 370 recorded kidnappings by drug cartel, a border agent run over and killed in California last January, one border agent run over by a drug smuggler recently and over 230 U.S. cities, from Anchorage to Atlanta that have a cartel or Mexican gang presence, says while U.S. officials are preparing for that violence to spill across the border it has not yet?

What? Are we to wait until we start have 500 killed by drug cartels or more before she realizes we have a problem? What is her focal goal before she acts?

And Obama and our current Administration wants to control our guns and ammunition? Whatever happened to the RIGHT to protect our homes and families from the likes of the Mexican cartels? Since our own Homeland Security Secretary fails to recognize we as Americans have a problem on our southern border, don’t we have the right to protect ourselves from this violence?

The biggest shocker is when the Mexicans can sue an AMERICAN farmer protecting his ranch from illegals TRESPASSING on his property!

Unbelieveable!

The “Audacity” Of Illegal Immigrants: Suing Americans For Violation of “Their Civil Rights”

16 illegals sue Arizona rancher

Claim violation of rights as they crossed his land

An Arizona man who has waged a 10-year campaign to stop a flood of illegal immigrants from crossing his property is being sued by 16 Mexican nationals who accuse him of conspiring to violate their civil rights when he stopped them at gunpoint on his ranch on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Roger Barnett, 64, began rounding up illegal immigrants in 1998 and turning them over to the U.S. Border Patrol, he said, after they destroyed his property, killed his calves and broke into his home.

His Cross Rail Ranch near Douglas, Ariz., is known by federal and county law enforcement authorities as “the avenue of choice” for immigrants seeking to enter the United States illegally.

Trial continues Monday in the federal lawsuit, which seeks $32 million in actual and punitive damages for civil rights violations, the infliction of emotional distress and other crimes. Also named are Mr. Barnett’s wife, Barbara, his brother, Donald, and Larry Dever, sheriff in Cochise County, Ariz., where the Barnetts live. The civil trial is expected to continue until Friday.

The lawsuit is based on a March 7, 2004, incident in a dry wash on the 22,000-acre ranch, when he approached a group of illegal immigrants while carrying a gun and accompanied by a large dog.

Attorneys for the immigrants – five women and 11 men who were trying to cross illegally into the United States – have accused Mr. Barnett of holding the group captive at gunpoint, threatening to turn his dog loose on them and saying he would shoot anyone who tried to escape.

The immigrants are represented at trial by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), which also charged that Sheriff Dever did nothing to prevent Mr. Barnett from holding their clients at “gunpoint, yelling obscenities at them and kicking one of the women.”

In the lawsuit, MALDEF said Mr. Barnett approached the group as the immigrants moved through his property, and that he was carrying a pistol and threatening them in English and Spanish. At one point, it said, Mr. Barnett’s dog barked at several of the women and he yelled at them in Spanish, “My dog is hungry and he’s hungry for buttocks.”

The lawsuit said he then called his wife and two Border Patrol agents arrived at the site. It also said Mr. Barnett acknowledged that he had turned over 12,000 illegal immigrants to the Border Patrol since 1998.

In March, U.S. District Judge John Roll rejected a motion by Mr. Barnett to have the charges dropped, ruling there was sufficient evidence to allow the matter to be presented to a jury. Mr. Barnett’s attorney, David Hardy, had argued that illegal immigrants did not have the same rights as U.S. citizens.

Mr. Barnett told The Washington Times in a 2002 interview that he began rounding up illegal immigrants after they started to vandalize his property, northeast of Douglas along Arizona Highway 80. He said the immigrants tore up water pumps, killed calves, destroyed fences and gates, stole trucks and broke into his home.

Some of his cattle died from ingesting the plastic bottles left behind by the immigrants, he said, adding that he installed a faucet on an 8,000-gallon water tank so the immigrants would stop damaging the tank to get water.

Mr. Barnett said some of the ranch´s established immigrant trails were littered with trash 10 inches deep, including human waste, used toilet paper, soiled diapers, cigarette packs, clothes, backpacks, empty 1-gallon water bottles, chewing-gum wrappers and aluminum foil – which supposedly is used to pack the drugs the immigrant smugglers give their “clients” to keep them running.

He said he carried a pistol during his searches for the immigrants and had a rifle in his truck “for protection” against immigrant and drug smugglers, who often are armed.  

Roger Barnett said he had turned over 12,000 illegal immigrants to the Border Patrol since 1998.

A former Cochise County sheriff´s deputy who later was successful in the towing and propane business, Mr. Barnett spent $30,000 on electronic sensors, which he has hidden along established trails on his ranch. He searches the ranch for illegal immigrants in a pickup truck, dressed in a green shirt and camouflage hat, with his handgun and rifle, high-powered binoculars and a walkie-talkie.

His sprawling ranch became an illegal-immigration highway when the Border Patrol diverted its attention to several border towns in an effort to take control of the established ports of entry. That effort moved the illegal immigrants to the remote areas of the border, including the Cross Rail Ranch.

“This is my land. I´m the victim here,” Mr. Barnett said. “When someone´s home and loved ones are in jeopardy and the government seemingly can´t do anything about it, I feel justified in taking matters into my own hands. And I always watch my back.”

GUESS WHO IS FUNDING THE ILLEGALS?

Foundations Bankrolling Amnesty Advocates, Sean Lengell, Wshington Times

June 6, 2007
Foundations bankrolling advocates for aliens By Sean Lengell THE WASHINGTON TIMES Published June 6, 2007

Wealthy philanthropic foundations are helping bankroll the pro-immigration movement, while groups advocating for tighter control of U.S. borders say they take a more grass-roots approach to raising money. The Ford Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation and Democratic activist George Soros are among the liberal funders that have donated millions of dollars to pro-immigration groups, as the Senate continues its debate on a contentious bill that would overhaul the nation’s immigration policy.

Three of the nation’s biggest and most influential pro-immigration groups — the National Immigration Forum, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) — collectively received more than $3.25 million from Ford Foundation since 2005.

The three advocacy groups generally support the proposed Senate bill which would give many of the estimated 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens in the U.S. a path to citizenship.

The bill also would allow aliens here to bring close family members into the country. Pro-immigration nonprofit groups say they’re hardly awash in cash compared to organizations lobbying on other contentious issues, such as abortion, the environment and tort reform. “To me, it’s remarkable how little money goes into immigration reform on both sides of the issue,” said Frank Sharry, executive director of the National Immigration Forum. “It’s Lilliputian.” Mr. Sharry said groups on both sides of the immigration issue can rightfully be considered “grass-roots” outfits. “We have a staff of only 10 people,” Mr. Sharry said of his group, which supports allowing aliens a path to legal residency or citizenship. “These groups on all sides of the debate are small, intense and highly informed.”

But groups supporting stronger immigration policy and tighter border control say they rely more on small donations from individuals than large foundations.

NumbersUSA, which says it has 366,000 members, saw its membership grow 50 percent since Jan. 1 and 18 percent in May, spokeswoman Caroline Espinosa said. Two-thirds of the group’s financial support comes from private people, with the average donation being $40. “Contrary to what might be popular belief is that the grass-roots aspect is more on our side than the [pro-immigration] side,” Mrs. Espinosa said. “They have more of these organized, established types of groups funding them and driving their activism.” John Tanton, a retired small-town Michigan ophthalmologist who helped organize Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), NumbersUSA and the Center for Immigration Studies, says money alone won’t win the immigration debate. “Money can be a help, but it also can be a hindrance,” he said. “If you don’t have to go out and meet the public and get shouted at and get direct-mail surveys rejected, then you won’t know about the pulse of the public. “We’ve had our share of major supporters, but we’ve had to rely on nickel-and-dime support,” Mr. Tanton said.

A complete list of funders isn’t available, as these lobby groups are not legally required to report their funding sources.

But many major philanthropic institutions make at least part of their donor lists public, showing a strong pro-immigration bias in their donating. The Open Society Institute, run by Mr. Soros, has given $825,000 from 2002 to 2004 to the National Immigration Forum.

Mr. Soros, who donated large sums of money in a failed effort to defeat President Bush’s bid for re-election in 2004, also has donated $525,000 to NCLR and $325,000 to MALDEF during the same period.

The Ford Foundation, with assets of more than $9 billion, is known to favor liberal causes. The foundation was significantly criticized in 2003 after it gave millions of dollars worth of grants to Palestinian nonprofit groups that later were accused of conducting terrorist activities.

The Carnegie Corporation has contributed almost $7 million collectively to the National Immigration Forum, MALDEF and NCLR since 1994.

NCLR also collected almost $2.2 million from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation from 2003 to 2005 and $425,000 from the Rockefeller Foundation since 2004.

The Rockefeller Foundation since 2004 also have given more than $1 million to MALDEF and $300,000 to the National Immigration Law Center. About one-third of NCLR’s budget comes from foundations, NCLR spokeswoman Lisa Navarrete said, noting, however, that her group cannot use money from tax-exempt foundations for political purposes, but rather uses it to support its other functions. “Foundation money is used strictly for policy purposes and research work,” she said. “We keep a strict line on that.” Less than 2 percent of NCLR’s budget is used to promote its immigration agenda, she added. “We’re a Latino advocacy group. What we do is much broader than just immigration,” Ms. Navarrete said.

Advocacy groups on the other side of the immigration debate are not without some financial support from philanthropic entities. The conservative Scaife Foundations of Pittsburgh gave FAIR — one of the biggest immigration-control nonprofit groups — $775,000 from 2003 to 2005. The foundations during the same time period also gave $420,000 to the Center for Immigration Studies and $100,000 to the NumbersUSA Education and Research Foundation — groups also that advocate tighter border control and restricting the flow of immigrants.

The Scaife Foundations, which include the Sarah Scaife and Carthage foundations, are connected with conservative billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife, the principal heir to the Mellon banking, oil and aluminum fortune.

The F.M. Kirby Foundation, which has supported many conservative nonprofit groups in recent years, gave $475,000 to NumbersUSA since 1998 and donated more than $375,000 to FAIR since 2000.

But overall, opponents of the bill say they rely more on strength in membership numbers that translates beyond donations, noting the more than 750,000 faxes opposing the Senate bill sent to members of Congress last month.

“This just shows how angry people are about this bill and over the idea of amnesty and allowing 12 million illegal aliens to remain here in this country and basically get rewarded for breaking the law,” Mrs. Espinosa said.
