A story from the Chicago based website Second City Cop
Two thieves rob a man at gunpoint and run from the scene. The victim climbs in his car, chases the “suspects” and, well, take a gander at this brief video to see justice being served. Second City Cop calls this payback for the number of times such a**holes get away clean after their armed robberies.
Watch closely as the action takes place fast!

So eager were congressional Democrats to sign Barack Obama’s healthcare servitude plan into law that nary a one recognized the fact that passage would effectively end their top of the line, taxpayer funded health insurance coverage.
And this would be just one of the unpleasant Affordable Care Act realities to take the legislation’s authors by surprise. For they would also lose some $10,000 in yearly premium assistance which had for decades been part of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP). “In effect, the Affordable Care Act gave members of Congress a $10,000 pay cut.”
But that Washington lawmakers should be ravaged to the tune of $10,000—even as a result of their own legislative efforts—well that sort of inconvenience is reserved for commoners, after all.
So the Office of Personnel Management (OPM)—with some slight urging on by Barack Obama—decided it might ignore that portion of the Affordable Care Act which forbids providing generous subsidies to congressional employees.
But not even this convenient bit of contempt for the law would eliminate other problems the Affordable Care Act would cause its authors. Perhaps the greatest of these “prohibits employers from making contributions to their employee’s coverage through the American Health Benefits Exchange (ObamaCare Exchange) THAT SERVES INDIVIDUALS.” (my caps)
Difficult as it is to believe, members of Congress are employees of the American people. Their benefits, salaries and the like are handled by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). If congress wanted to take advantage of the generous, ongoing premium assistance illegally afforded its members, they would have to sign up for ObamaCare with the D.C. Small Business Exchange.
However, D. C. law “limits participation in the Exchange to small businesses employing 50 or fewer full-time employees.” This should have made it rather difficult to register the 12,359 congressmen, dependents, staffers and others currently taking advantage of taxpayer financed health insurance.
So our congressional “employees” have defrauded the American people and American taxpayers by engaging in a willful conspiracy with the Office of Personnel Management, the D.C. Small Business Exchange and Barack Obama! Judicial Watch lawyers have at last forced officials at the D.C. Small Business (ObamaCare) Exchange to fess up and admit that “Congress is taking advantage of health benefits its members and staff are not entitled to claim.” Of course, the Exchange “blacked out” the names of those who submitted the false ObamaCare applications on the part of the House and Senate; applications received in response to a Freedom of Information lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch.
Members of the House and Senate do not exhibit self-importance; rather they are self-infatuated, displaying an arrogance born of uncontested power. CiR will keep readers up to date with the progress of the Judicial Watch lawsuit.
For voters who are unsure, who don’t yet know which candidate they will support in 2016, here is something to think about.
If you vote for Donald Trump, Melania Trump will be our First Lady.
Of course, there are those who might prefer our next First Lady to more closely resemble the money mooching primate that currently inhabits the White House.
Then again, with a Hillary presidency our next First Lady will be:
Bill appears to be practicing his aim. Given the prospect of being required to stand at Hillary’s side every few days with a feigned look of awe and wonder as prompted by her under-appreciated genius…well who could blame him!
Tonight’s debate by Republican presidential candidates promises to be the Jump on Trump show as Republican Party elders have told nominee wanna-be’s that their future in Election 2016 depends upon removing The Donald from the crowded though increasingly ONE MAN field.
According to DC Whispers, Big Dollar Republican donors have made it clear to the various candidate camps that “Donald Trump cannot be allowed to appear to win” the Thursday evening debate. As a display of their Party loyalty, it has been claimed that “some of these high-powered donors are helping to finance the campaigns of BOTH Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush!” And we wonder why true conservatives are no longer welcome members of the GOP.
Donald Trump is worth approximately $10 billion. He has made the vast majority of this fortune on his own initiative. So the question is, how will a field which includes many lifelong politicians show up Donald Trump? He cannot be intimidated. He will not be flustered. And he is well aware of the fact that his will be the one overwhelming presence in the field of 10.
So how will Marco Rubio, who currently boasts just 5% Republican support, “take out” Trump? Or John Kasich, Rand Paul or Ted Cruz? Chris Christie can’t be expected to make much of a showing because Barack won’t be there to hug and gush over.
Tonight’s nine minor participants and the Republican Party’s list of increasingly nervous, big money donors have just one hope—that the FOX News moderators will attack Trump at every turn, prevent him finishing his answers or making his points while asking nothing but the “When did you stop beating your wife” questions usually reserved by Candy Crowley for marginal conservatives.
But if Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly play it straight and honest, Donald Trump is likely to score the sort of KO which could remove as many as half a dozen pretenders from the GOP field.
“What, then, is law? It is the collective organization of the individual right to lawful defense. Each of us has a natural right—from God—to defend his person, his liberty, and his property. … [I]t follows that a group of men have the right to organize and support a common force to protect these rights constantly…Thus, since an individual cannot lawfully use force against the person, liberty, or property of another individual, then the common force—for the same reason—cannot lawfully be used to destroy the person, liberty, or property of individuals or groups.”Frederic Bastiat 1801-1850
Coach is Right has written often of Twila Brase, President and Co-Founder of the Citizens Council for Health Freedom and her work to expose the corruption of ObamaCare and the fraud perpetrated on Americans by HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. In a recent commentary entitled “ObamaCare is Plunder,” Brase applies contents of The Law, a book by 19th century theorist and political economist Frederic Bastiat to
the assault by Barack Obama’s criminal healthcare scheme on the rights and liberty of the American people.
“ObamaCare,” writes Brase, is what Bastiat describes as a “perversion of the law.” This perversion takes place when a law “limit[s] and destroy[s] rights which its real purpose was to respect.” Bastiat refers to such perversion as “plunder,” for the law “takes from some persons what belongs to them and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong.”
Our government mimics Bastiat’s definition of plunder each time it imposes its will in the name of the greater good. It is the plunder of our wealth, of our health (remember Death Panels?) and of our liberty. And it is the loss of liberty which is most destructive, for the fraudulent legalization of ObamaCare marks only the first step in the devastation of our freedom by a ruling body of
insatiable, power hungry legislators.
By transforming the ObamaCare individual mandate into an unconstitutional tax, Chief Justice John Roberts literally provided Congress permission to impose its every whim on the American people. For as a result of Roberts’ ruling, Congress needs only pass a law and assign a tax penalty to those who refuse to comply. Could there be a more direct application of plunder?
“See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime,” suggests Bastiat. Consider the laws, rules and demands put in place by lawmakers and bureaucrats. The requirements of some of these would land the average citizen in jail should he attempt to impose their provisions on other Americans. What would be a crime were you or I to attempt its implementation may not be disobeyed, not even questioned when imposed by the government.
Brase refers to ObamaCare as a “whole system of legal plunder,” but that is not the case. ObamaCare has been
unconstitutionally legalized by the court, but it is not legal. For no unconstitutional statute is legal and as such, ObamaCare’s provisions need not be obeyed by the American people. As the Supreme Court has refused to uphold the law or the Constitution in ObamaCare cases brought before it, the American people must act by refusing to abide the corruption of their legislators, their president and their jurists.
We have been plundered long enough.
