Standing Chick Refuses To Be A Sitting Duck

The Second Amendment was meant to leave citizens with the ability to defend themselves against unlawful violence. Such threats might come from usurpers of governmental power, but they might also come from criminals whom the government is unwilling or unable to control.

In most American states, including many with large urban population centers, responsible adults have easy access to ordinary firearms, and they are permitted to carry them in public. Experience has shown that these policies do not lead to increased levels of violence. Criminals pay no more attention to gun control regulations than they do to laws against murder, rape, and robbery. Armed citizens, however, prevent countless crimes and have saved many lives. What’s more, the most vulnerable people—including women, the elderly, and those who live in high crime neighborhoods—are among the greatest beneficiaries of the Second Amendment. If the courts require the remaining jurisdictions to stop infringing on the constitutional right to keep and bear arms, their citizens will be more free and probably safer as well. Nelson Lund University Professor, Antonin Scalia School of Law, George Mason University

By Nelson Lund

The right to keep and bear arms is a lot like the right to freedom of speech. In each case, the Constitution expressly protects a liberty that needs to be insulated from the ordinary political process.

Conviction overturned for man electrified by Texas judge

7 March 2018

Judge George Gallagher

A Texas appeals court has overturned a man’s conviction after finding a judge had inappropriately electrified him in court, US media report.

Terry Lee Morris was convicted of soliciting sexual performance from a child and was sentenced to 60 years.

Judge George Gallagher ordered the bailiff to activate a stun belt sending 50,000 volts through Morris when he allegedly refused to answer questions.

The higher court found that stun belts cannot be used as punishment in court.

Mr Morris appealed his 2014 conviction alleging that his constitutional rights were violated when the judge used the belt as punishment for not answering questions properly.

The belts – used by courtrooms such as the one Tarrant County in Texas – are affixed around the legs or midsection of a suspect in court and are used to deliver a shock to the person should they become violent.

Mr Morris said he was too scared to return to court out of more electrical shocks, the Texas Eighth Court of Appeals in El Paso heard.

The appeals court ruled on 28 February that Mr Morris’ shocks and removal from the court was a violation of his constitutional right to be present and confront witnesses during his trial. The decision was first reported by the Texas Lawyer news website on Tuesday.

He has now been ordered to stand for a new trial.

During the case in which Mr Morris was convicted of soliciting sexual acts from a 15-year-old girl, Judge Gallagher asked him to enter his plea of “guilty or not guilty”.

When Mr Morris responded by saying he had a lawsuit against Judge Gallagher and his defence lawyer, the judge warned him that he would shock him if he did not “follow the rules”, the Washington Post newspaper reported, citing court transcripts.

South Texas Judge Charged With Accepting Bribes for Favorable Rulings

Image courtesy of FrameAngel at

The FBI has charged a South Texas judge with accepting bribes after a lawyer working as a confidential informant helped agents record the jurist allegedly accepting $6,000 in cash in exchange for favorable rulings.

Federal agents arrested 93rd State District Judge Rodolfo “Rudy” Delgado of Edinburg on Feb. 2. Delgado was charged with “bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds,” and released on $100,000 bond. The criminal complaint filed against Delgado alleges the FBI worked with an unnamed lawyer, who confessed he had a history dating back to 2008 of bribing Delgado.

The lawyer-turned-informant, listed in the complaint under the initials CHS, worked with the FBI for over a year and participated in numerous recorded phone calls and meetings with Delgado.

The attorney provided Delgado with pre-recorded government funds on two occasions, according to the complaint. In each instance, Delgado allegedly accepted a bribe to place the attorney’s clients on bond.

The attorney wore a recording device as he met with Delgado at a restaurant to hand off an envelope containing the bribery money on Jan. 17, according to the complaint. Delgado allegedly accepted the bribe and then asked for the client and case number. Delgado placed the attorney’s client on bond the next day.

However, on Jan. 29, Delgado sent a text message to the attorney, which stated, “Good evening, please call me. The campaign contribution needs to be by check. I need to return that to you so you can write a check. Sorry about the confusion, I though you knew and I did not open the envelope till today.”

The complaint alleges the text message was an attempt by Delgado to cover up the bribe.

“Delgado had solicited contributions from CHS in the past, but when CHS offered Delgado the bribe, he did not say that it was a campaign donation. Furthermore, CHS offered and Delgado accepted a thick white envelope full of prerecorded government funds,” the complaint alleges. Delgado did not return a call for comment. Neither did his attorney, Adolfo “Al” Alvarez.

Eric Vinson, executive director of the State Commission on Judicial Conduct, said Delgado will automatically be suspended from the bench upon indictment.

The commission normally suspends judges without pay automatically if they are indicted for a felony or a misdemeanor involving official misconduct. Judges are allowed to petition the commission to resume their pay or to return to the bench after an indictment, Vinson said, but the commission has historically not allowed indicted judges to sit in Texas.

“The Feds have 30 days to indict and we’re going to kind of watch and see what happens and go from there,” Vinson said.

Delgado has a history with the commission. He was suspended from the bench in 2005 after a grand jury indicted him in connection with a driving while intoxicated incident. That suspension was later lifted by the commission in 2007 after the criminal charges against Delgado were dismissed by a visiting judge—a decision that was later upheld by Corpus Christi’s 13th Court of Appeals.

South Texas Judge Enters Not-Guilty Plea to Bribery Charges

In Minnesota $150 a day `gifts` (bribes) For Judges Is Acceptable

Under a rule judges made for their benefit only, they can take $150 `gifts` (bribes) from lawyers, special interests and anyone else. They can keep these `gifts` (bribes) secret – they do not have to report them to anyone. They can take an unlimited number of these `gifts` (bribes) – as many as they want.

The rule is part of the Canons of Judicial Conduct. The paragraph that states the rule is very convoluted. In simplified language it states that a judge can accept:

`Any other gift, loan, bequest, or other thing of value not exceeding $150, if the source of person is not a party or other person who, directly or indirectly, has come or is likely to come before the judge, or whose interests have come or are likely to come before the judge.` 

The rule allows a lawyer or person to appear before a judge even if a partner or associate gives the judge $150 gifts (bribes). Thus, law firms commonly designate a `DE` (designated entertainer) to give judge gifts up to $150 in value. DEs do not appear in court.

To see the rule, go to Minnesota Canons Judicial Conduct  3.13 (C) (2) to see the language quoted above. A judge must report the gift only if it is more than $150 in amount or value.

`That is scandalous` former Governor Quie said when he learned that judges can take up to $150 gifts from lawyers, special interests, and others. It is more than that – it is outrageous. Judges know they can take $150 `gifts` – as many as they want – and keep it a secret. They are well aware of their rules of judicial conduct. Many judges accept these secret gifts. If they do not, the rule would obviously be unnecessary and could be eliminated.

Legislators, legislative employees and employees of the executive (governor`s) branch of state government cannot accept `gifts` (bribes) in any amount over $5. This is because a code of ethics exists for the legislative and executive branches of state of government. There should be such a code for the judicial branch of government but there is not.

The legislature should outlaw `gifts` by anyone to judges except from members of their immediate family as other states have done. Judges should be required to publicly disclose all gifts received from anyone other than their immediate family. `Gifts` to judges promote judicial corruption and undermine justice.

Gun Confiscation Beta Tests Are Spreading Across the Country

This was a familiar site in Boston and surrounding areas following the Boston Marathon Bombing.


Boston’s brush with Martial Law

In the Spring of 2017, I received the following communciation from someone claiming to be with DHS and they stated that they were rehearsing gun confiscation in urban areas. I had nothing to connect this communication to so I simply hung on to the message until I could connect this to something tangible. In the last 48 hours, there have been two events which tells me the Deep State is firmly in control and they are now rehearsing the seizing of American held guns. Here was the original warning:

Mr. Hodges

I have read much of what you have written about gun confiscation and so-called Fema camps. They are real and generally, the information you provide is accurate. To the best of my knowledge you have not covered the mechanics of a gun seizure operation. 

I am not totally on board with what I have been training to do with regard to Americans and their Second Amendment gun rights. I am eligible to retire in three years and my protests will accomplish nothing and I would lose my retirement. So you could say that I go along to get along. 

What I am writing to you about is the government sponsored gun confiscation that is coming to this country. There are people in our government who determined to take your guns. 

We have trained in mock cities on how we will accomplish this feat. We use a traditional checkerboard pattern similar to what the citizens of Boston experienced after the Boston Marathon bombing. 

We have routinely practiced the same scenario, repeatedly. To cover a suburban block, our forces approach with two armored personnel carriers on opposite ends of the street, two per side of the street. One vehicle remains  on each side of the street as the accompanying vehicle moves down the block. Our teams approach a house from the front but we also flank the house and enter the backyard. Our support vehicle trains its guns on the house. the assault teams consist of a dozen men each. The armored support vehicle has orders to immediately fire upon anyone appearing in a window with anything that could be construed as a gun. Our personnel, will knock one time on the front door. When the door is answered, we secure the individual or individuals and ask them how many people are in the house and where they are. We also ask how many guns are in the house, what type of guns they own and where they are stored and would anyone have guns on their person. Most often we have trained to assault a house between the hours of 3 and 4 in the morning. Then we clear the house with an emphasis on first entering the bedrooms. We accomplish this task in two man teams. We order any occupants to get on the floor and we secure them and then begin the search for guns. We emply a portable metal detector and gun sniffing dogs if available. 

If the occupants are nonresponsive, we enter after knocking down the front door. Before going in, we have already viewed the schematics of the target house. Yes, we have the blueprints for virtually every house in America. We go in hot and are trained to use deadly force against any any all perceived resistance. We don’t use tear gas, we are trained to shoot any resisters.

Upon entering the house we are trained to identify ourselves and order everyone out of the house under gunpoint. We have trained on mock houses in which guns were hidden in the attic, under the bed, in a safe and even in underwear drawers. If the seized guns are legally registered, we seize the guns and let the family return. If the guns are illegal or not registered, we take the entire family into custody. We have practiced transporting families to differential holding facilities  re children, men and women are held in different facilities. 

Each armored vehicle and their personnnel make their way down the street from opposite ends. The accompanying vehicle stands guard at the end of each block to prevent escape. We prefer to execute the operation in bad weather because it eliminates escape possibilities. 

One of the reasons that I am wirting to you is because you have identified Camp Graylling as a detention facility during the Jade Helm drills. during that time my team trained foreign solders at the camp in the art of  securing new prisoners.  My training of foreign nationals makes me suspect that future gun confiscation efforts will be conducted under the auspices of the United Nations although I have not been told that. This is where I part company with my employer. I will not participate in such an operation. 

When you write future articles on potential gun confiscation activities, I am hopeful that you will refer to some of the logistics to evaluate the authenticity of the information that you are given…….

This FEMA camp facility in Grayling, MI., was the sight of martial law training for the Michigan National guard commencing on July 15, which was  the inception date for Jade Helm. This facility also houses hundreds of UN military vehicles. During Jade Helm, DHS, National Guard and foreign troops participated in the art of incarcerating the general public.

Spotted on American soil. The United Nations Is positioning for the takeover of the United States.

Gun Confiscation Beta Test In Redlands, CA

Paul Martin contacted me on the evening of March 5, 2018 and told me he had reliable reports of two different groups of law enforcement going block to block in what appeared to be a gun confiscation beta test in Redlands, CA.

I recently interviewed Paul Martin regarding door-to-door visits by law enforcement as well as Jerry Brown’s Moon-Beam Militia and they are asking residents if they have registered guns. Paul Preston, from Agenda 21 Radio is aware of this as well. This is a breaking story, it is incomplete at the time of the recording and there will be  much more that is forthcoming on this disturbing event.

There was much more that surfaced 24 hours later in Seattle.

Nazi Style Gun Consfication in Seattle

There is even more 2nd Amendment tyranny to report.

 From SHTF:

A man in Seattle has had his gun confiscated by police after breaking no laws. The police took his gun without a warrant and without pressing any charges.  Tyranny has officially taken hold on American soil.

This sets a precedent that government can now forcefully take guns away from an individual without a crime being committed or an arrest being made and without a warrant. In the name of fear and political exploitation of anti-gun rhetoric, a citizen’s Second Amendment rights have been ripped away from him by the government.

The new “red flag” law, which has taken hold in other states already, allows the courts and law enforcement to take away guns from individuals they deem are dangerous and they’ve just begun the confiscation. A man living in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle, Washington became the first individual in the state to have his firearm confiscated without any formal arrest or charges.  The man was not identified by authorities.

Neighbors complained that the man had been “staring” at people through storefront windows while wearing a holstered firearm. He was not brandishing his weapon by any account, and open carrying is legal in the area, so he was abiding by the law. Other residents also complained that the man’s open carrying made them feel “uncomfortable” and “unsafe.”

This was a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment and 5th Amendment due process as well as 4th Amendment search and seizure.

The University of Hawaii Democide Project

The University of Hawaii maintains a site about death by government and they use the term “democide” to describe the act of government’s use of genocide against its own people. Genocide far outnumbers the amount of people killed in all wars. Thus, the greatest threat to a people, is its own government. Thomas Jefferson was correct when he said the 2nd Amendment was not for the French and British, it was designed to protect future Americans from its own government.

The following genocide chart demonstrates the lethality of government towards its citizens.

20th Century Democide

There is a punchline to this democide chart.

Your Time Is Running Out

In a video posted on Twitter by NRATV, conservative political activist and TV host Dana Loesch tells “every lying member of the media” that they have “had enough”.

“To every lying member of the media, to every Hollywood phony, to the role model athletes who use their free speech to alter and undermine what our flag represents…Your Time is running out. The clock starts now.”


Racist Bigot? Hardly

We Just Found Out What Trump’s Been SECRETLY Doing To Black Homeless Lady For 8 Years- MSM SILENT




The media has relentlessly worked to portray Trump as a racist, bigoted, rich “neo nazi,” as they have all Republicans.

But a homeless woman just posted an incredible video on social media that absolutely shreds that narrative.

The woman says she snuck into Trump Tower nine years ago and became a squatter in one of the empty rooms of the hotel, until she was discovered by law enforcement. Police threatened to arrest her if she didn’t leave the premises. When she refused to leave, the officers contacted Mr. Trump over the phone and he arrived to the scene.

What the billionaire magnate did for the woman is heartwarming.

“Instead of evicting me off the property, he said that I can stay and it’s been eight years I’ve been here,” the woman reveals. “Not only did he not evict me off the property, he made sure that I ate three meals a day by room service and that I get a delivery of fresh flowers every week.”

Trump never asked her to pay a dime and the notion that Trump is a “bad guy” is malarkey, the African American woman said.

“If it weren’t for him I’d be homeless – I’d be dead right now, I’d be in the street,” she concludes. “Donald Trump is not a bad guy, he’s a wonderful, wonderful man, and everything I’m telling you today is true.”
