Obama Is Turning the Local Police Against American Citizens

Is this what they need in Adamsville, Alabama to hand out parking tickets?

Is this what they need in Adamsville, Alabama to hand out parking tickets? This is the federalization of our local police forces and it having a devastating effect on local police and community relations.

The United States has more than 18,000 police departments. far more than any other nation. Each of the 50 states has its own Peace Officer Standards and Training board and officer / deputy certification criteria for more than 700,000 officers nationwide. Over the next several decades it’s likely that a more federalized policing model will replace this decentralized approach.

“Critics have argued for years that decentralized police administration fosters inherently poor-quality policing, tolerates racial bias, and makes it especially difficult to monitor and verify training and certification requirements across states. For many critics, federal intervention remains the remedy of choice. The current administration in Washington appears to agree.”

Local cops really excited about their terrifying new tank

Robby Soave     Reporter                                                                                           10:31 AM 10/22/2013

___________________________________________________________________________________________

The police department in St. Cloud, Minnesota is excited to have a new means of transportation: a menacing, jet-black tank.

The tank will be the official method of transportation for the department’s SWAT team, which was accustomed to driving an old ambulance on “high-risk” missions, according to the St. Cloud Times.

But thanks to Minnesota’s Homeland Security office, the city was able to upgrade to a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle, or MRAP. The tank is worth $400,000, but St. Cloud only paid a $3,000 transportation fee.

“We got to acquire a very expensive piece of equipment that has everything to do with our ability to do our job in a safe effective way,” said St. Cloud Police Lt. Jeff Oxton in reference to the armored car, which is designed for battlefield combat operations.

The federal government is labeling any American that is anti-federal government in any way to be considered a domestic terrorist, and is setting up an elaborate ‘future crimes’ police state: Things are getting scary: Global police, pre crime and the war on domestic ‘extremists’, John W.

Strong Cities Network: Global Law Enforcement in US – No Congressional Consent

If you live in Atlanta, Denver, Minneapolis or New York City, you have the wisdom, or perceived wisdom, of “law enforcement global partners” working in your city to address violent extremism.”  The announcement by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch came with the launch at the United Nations in New York City on September 29, 2015 … the United Nations, “a sharia-compliant world body …” There are 193 member nations in the United Nations. Of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) 57 states, 56 are member states of the UN. Have you wondered what happened to Syria’s seat in the U.N.? Well, of course, that peace-loving body yanked it and then handed it over to the ‘freedom fighters/rebels.’ In October 2013, the United Nations issued a statement advocating for “greater ties with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to resolve conflict in the Middle East ….” So how’s that working out for the “global partners?” And before I get to the Department of Justice announcement on the Strong Cities Network, I have to show you this from the U.N.policies are being applied in the United States, through local initiatives and now we’re going to see a global police force.

More people take pledge against hate

The SILENCE is deafening…except for the crickets chirping the city is a bed, people with pillows over their head or more likely buried in the sand while a HATE crime goes unnoticed, virtuously unreported as the Times down plays the whole ordeal. Sadly the people of our fair city also chose to ignore this, the mayor, the church leaders, the city council, the concerned hate pledge signers who were so PROUD to have their names displayed in the paper stating that THEY would not tolerate hate…

This same St. Cloud Times that had a two day spread on it’s famous Sign our Against HATE Pledge!!!

This same St. Cloud Times that had numerous days and pages of “mosque vandalism” reported ACCUSING White Cloud of these heinous unforgivable hate-filled acts (which were later to be found to have been cause by one of their own)

Where are all those SELF-RIGHTEOUS church leaders who are usually out front and center for any photo op that makes them look loving to ALL in the community.

Dayton blunt in MN forum: Anyonewho can’t accept immigrants ‘should find another state’

 

So what’s the big picture? Divide and Conquer ~ Control out of Chaos!

The fundamental transformation occurring in the United States is being accelerated by flooding the US with people from third world countries. St. Cloud and other towns are being bankrupted because they are providing humanitarian aid with our taxpayer dollars..Loyalty to the government will be created because these people will be dependent on subsidies to survive. This is simply a tool used to play one or more racial or ethnic groups against another. This technique was developed by Marxist ideologues who used multiculturalism in Russia to divide and conquer resistance to the institution of a communist state.

This is all about exerting control, collapsing the economy and is a PLANNED TAKE DOWN OF AMERICA.

Create the problem ~ Incite a reaction from the public ~ Propose a solution which involves a military intervention, the loss of liberties or both.

Excerpt from: Social Unrest is Here to Stay: Here’s How to Protect Yourself – The Daily Reckoning 

By Genevieve LeFranc

In an op-ed entitled “The Pitchforks Are Coming… For Us Plutocrats,” billionaire and venture capitalist Nick Hanauer taps into that very notion of “it’ll never happen to me.” He writes:

Many of us think we’re special because “this is America.” We think we’re immune to the same forces that started the Arab Spring—or the French and Russian revolutions, for that matter.

Here’s what I say to you: You’re living in a dream world.

What everyone wants to believe is that when things reach a tipping point and go from being merely crappy for the masses to dangerous and socially destabilizing, that we’re somehow going to know about that shift ahead of time.

Any student of history knows that’s not the way it happens. Revolutions, like bankruptcies, come gradually, and then suddenly. One day, somebody sets himself on fire, then thousands of people are in the streets, and before you know it, the country is burning.

It’s time for us to wake up and smell the civil strife, folks!

In an article on The New American titled “Prediction: Economic Collapse, Civil Unrest in America by 2016,” author Selwyn Duke echoes the same sentiment, writing:

Violence. Rioting. Looting. Economic collapse and civil unrest. This isn’t a dystopian movie plot, but something else according to an economist with a good track record for prognostication: America’s dark future.

The economist is Martin Armstrong, whose correct predictions include the 1987 Black Monday crash and the 1998 Russian financial implosion. And now he’s predicting civil unrest in America by 2016, precipitated by an economic collapse which he calls “the magic ingredient.” “Turn the economy down,” he continued, “and you get civil unrest and revolution.”

And what would precipitate our economic collapse? Many observers have warned that our runaway spending and loose monetary policy constitute a ticking time-bomb… Of course, some will say that the United States isn’t Hungary or Zimbabwe. But we should seriously wonder what we will be tomorrow if we won’t stop digging an economic grave with credit cards, counterfeit cash, and covetousness cloaked in compassion.

The Facade of Mainstream Media is Falling

SHOCK AUDIO: Katie Couric Edited Gun Documentary To Silence Pro-Gun Opinions

Daily CallerMAY 26, 2016
Dave Hookstead

DAVID HOOKSTEAD  Reporter

__________________________________________________________________________

Newly surface audio revealed that a Katie Couric-hosted documentary, called “Under the Gun,” intentionally edited video to make pro-gun Americans appear dumbfounded.
That audio, obtained by The Washington Free Beacon, shows that the movie was edited in an overwhelmingly deceptive fashion. (SLIDESHOW: Celebrate The Second Amendment With These Gorgeous Gun-Loving Women)

In the clip, Couric asks a group of pro-gun individuals from the Virginia Citizens Defense League, “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”

In the film, the pro-gun group appears to be stunned into silence, with no apparent answer to the question.

But a separate audio recording of the conversation reveals that the group responded quickly, and hit Couric back with nearly 4 minutes of thoughts on the subject.

Virginia Citizens Defense League president Philip Van Cleave told The Washington Free Beacon, “Katie Couric asked a key question during an interview of some members of our organization. She then intentionally removed their answers and spliced in nine seconds of some prior video of our members sitting quietly and not responding. Viewers are left with the misunderstanding that the members had no answer to her question.”

Las Vegas Judge Has Defense Attorney Handcuffed During Trial to “Teach Her a Lesson”

 

Las Vegas Justice Peace Judge Hafen

On Monday, Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Conrad Hafen ordered Deputy Public Defender Zohra Bakhtary to be handcuffed and placed within the area where defendants that are in custody normally are seated in the Las Vegas Justice Court. According to the judge she had violated “courtroom decorum” by speaking after he had told her to “be quiet.” (Transcript included below.)

Later he explained to the Las Vegas Review Journalin a phone interview:

“There’s been a progression of steps in the courtroom where I’ve tried to let her know it’s not proper decorum for her to continue to talk over me or interrupt me after she’s already made her argument,” he said. “Once an argument is made, then you have to allow the judge to respond, so there’s a clear record, and you shouldn’t be interrupting the judge as the judge is making a ruling. … I’ve been trying to work with her. And today it just spilled over to where I thought, ‘Well, clearly she’s not understanding what I’m trying to tell her.’ ”

However, according to Bakhtary, she was simply trying to properly defend her client and the judge wouldn’t listen to her argument. (Once again, via the Las Vegas Review Journal.)

“It all happened so fast,” she told the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Tuesday, a day after Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Conrad Hafen ordered her placed into custody.

Hafen Bakhtary Transcript Las VegasShe was left to sit silently, alongside inmates, while her client was sent to jail for six months.

Moments earlier, Hafen told Zohra Bakhtary to “be quiet,” as she tried to argue that a man facing larceny charges should not be thrown behind bars. After Bakhtary tried to speak, the judge asked her if she wanted to be found in contempt.

“I was not trying to argue with the court,” Bakhtary said. “I was just trying to calm the situation down. I was never allowed to speak. I was never given the opportunity to respond to his question. Had I been given the chance to actually respond, it would have been, ‘Absolutely not…’”

“Every day I zealously represent my clients,” Bakhtary wrote in a statement to the newspaper. “Every individual who goes through our criminal justice system has a constitutional right to effective assistance of counsel. It is a frightening day when a lawyer is locked up for fighting on behalf of her clients and their rights. That is precisely what I was doing, my job. I was placed in handcuffs for attempting to speak on behalf of my client … I have a great deal of respect for our judiciary. I did not act unprofessionally. I simply wanted the Court to listen to my argument and consider it before remanding my client for a 180 day jail sentence. The Court’s constitutional duty is to listen to arguments, not silence them.”

Chicago Investigator Blows Whistle on Corrupt Police Review Board

A former investigator with Chicago’s Independent Police Review Authority has filed a lawsuit claiming that he was fired for refusing to produce false reports regarding officers accused of misconduct.

Lorenzo Davis began working with Chicago’s Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA) in 2008 as an investigator after 23 years with the Chicago Police Department. By July 2010, he was promoted to supervising investigator before moving up to deputy chief administrator in October 2011 and finally, chief administrator in February 2014.

Courthouse News reports

As his boss, Davis says, “Ando began ordering plaintiff to change his sustained findings of police misconduct … in favor of the accused officers.”

He claims that Ando and Mitchell told him “to change the content of his investigative reports to more favorably reflect upon the accused officers’ conduct or to discredit the victim or witnesses.”

He wasn’t the only one, Davis says: “Ando and Mitchell also ordered other IPRA investigators to change the contents of their investigative reports and change their ultimate findings from sustained to not sustained, unfounded or exonerated.”

The IPRA was originally formed in 2007 to investigate other accusations of police corruption and misconduct. Unfortunately, the agency has itself been the subject of misconduct and corruption. In fact, in December 2015, Ando resigned from his position as head of the IPRA just as it was announced that the U.S. Department of Justice would begin an investigation into the CPD. The IPRA’s reputation has become so tarnished that in early April, the editorial board of The Chicago Tribune wrote, “the IPRA and its reputation are beyond repair. The way forward is clear: Blow it up. Start over.”

Only weeks ago Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced plans to completely end the IPRA in favor of a “new civilian investigative agency that has more independence and more resources to do its work.” Emanuel’s plan mimics a report from the Police Accountability Task Force, organized by Emanuel after the death of Laquan McDonald, which calls for the creation of a new review board. According to the Better Government Association, between 2010 and 2014 Chicago police shot 240 people, killing 70.

Both the Chicago Police Department and the IPRA are under fire for corruption, abuse, and possible criminal behavior. At this point the idea that the Mayor (another representative of the establishment) could realistically root out the poison that seems to infected the core of the Chicago Police Department is preposterous. All of these bureaucracies exist to sustain themselves and to subvert the will of the people. This is because these institutions are dependent on the people for funding (stolen via taxation) and ultimately serve the will of the State.

Imagine what would happen if our communities started organizing against these violent criminals and peacefully prevented the murder of our people? It’s time to start having those conversations.

I wanted to give you a quick update before the memorial day weekend in case you’re conspiring to slip this appointment by in a Friday news dump so no one knows about it.

I just want to remind you that my evidence in case #19HA-CR-15-4227 is being illegally withheld from me by your judicial candidate Phil Prokopowicz, chief deputy Dakota county attorney.

Oh and by the way, Grant County attorney Justin R. Anderson is also illegally withholding my evidence from me and related cases 19-HA-CR-15-4229 and 19HA-CR-15 4230

Apparently Prokopowicz nor Justin Anderson can win their cases by giving evidence  to the defendants they are victimizing in criminal cases. Remember, I did report this obstruction of justice to District 4 – Commissioner Nancy Schouweiler don’t you? (Calls recorded). Schouweiler is still lawyered up isn’t she? Schouweiler still has no intention of investigating the misuse of public funds nor the misconduct of the public officials at the Dakota County Attorney’s office does she? To protect myself and others, I am still going to continue to educate the public that they cannot trust any arrest, prosecution nor conviction in lawless Dakota County. Again, If you want a corrupt Dakota County judge who thinks and acts like they are above the rules and the laws, then Chief Deputy Dakota County Attorney Phillip Prokopowicz is the perfect corrupt candidate for you.

__________________________________________

Mike Volpe joins the show to report on the Rucki divorce/custody case here in Minnesota.  After an April 8, 2016 on 20/20, where Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was interviewed, it is uncertain what the actual situation is.  Why didn’t the court respect the wishes of the girls allowing them to live with their mother?  Why did the court give custody to the father who had a history of abusive behavior, documented in police reports?

“Despite his history, David Rucki currently has sole custody of their five children; Sandra Grazzini-Rucki last saw her children in early 2013 and she is scheduled to go on trial for parental interference for her alleged role in her two daughters’ more than two-year disappearance.

The Rucki family came to the attention of the media when the two oldest daughters ran away on April 19, 2013, after their pleas to live with their mother were shut down repeatedly by the court.

They remained missing until November 2015, when U.S. marshals discovered them on a farm in Herman, Minnesota”
