Terrorists leave a mark on defenseless, it-can’t-happen-here Canada


by Doug Book, editor

On Monday, Muslim convert Martin Rouleau ran down 2 members of the Canadian military, killing one and injuring another before he was shot and killed by police. Yesterday a second Muslim convert and terrorist Michael Zehaf-Bibeau killed a soldier outside of the Parliament building in Ottawa before sauntering inside to wound a number of MPs. Countless other members of the Canadian government had “…barricaded themselves behind doors reinforced with furniture.”

“It’s terrifying to think how high the body count may have been if not for the courage of Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers. The former Mountie is being widely praised as a hero after he shot and killed Zehaf-Bibeau just outside the parliamentary library before he managed to reach the MPs.”  And how is it this lunatic Islamist was able to frolic into Ottawa’s Parliament building, killing a soldier and shooting others along the way? Well it seems no one in Canada may carry a firearm unless they are able to prove that protection afforded them by police will be insufficient. Though it may be difficult to believe, such a claim almost never results in permission being granted to carry a gun! Imagine that. (By the way, both soldiers carried rifles for which they were NOT allowed to have ammunition!)

So one 58 year old former Mountie and current Sergeant at Arms,  Kevin Vickers–apparently the only Canadian armed at the time–found himself responsible for protecting all of the firearm wary MPs who had taken to diving behind furniture as the common-sense method of protecting their lives.  Seems Canadian politicians have far less concern for their safety than those incomparably, self-important folks in Washington, DC. This nut would have been met with the fire of countless “assault weapons”– the real, full-auto kind–had he pulled this stunt in the District!

Both of these terrorists were assisted in murdering innocent people by a Canadian government which revoked their passports, concerned that the desire expressed by these loons of traveling to Turkey might result in their joining ISIS! A brilliant stroke by politicos who are apparently the same all over. After all, better these murderous Islamists are kept where they can kill Canadians  than be released to another country where they might get into trouble!

Middle East expert Walid Phares brought the truth behind these attacks and the Canadian left’s unwillingness to expose the facts of terrorism into the United States to lay them at the feet of Barack Hussein when he stated that “the Obama administration’s obsession with political correctness in preference to honesty is disingenuous to the American people. Instead of calling these homegrown terrorists what they are, the violent acts of these radicalized jihadists are couched as “workplace violence” or random acts of violence.” 

These killings, however, have prompted even the Ottawa Sun to expose Muslim terrorists and Islamic jihadists for what they are.

Will Barack follow the example of Canada by telling the truth about the next act of “workplace violence” committed by one of his fellow Muslims? I wouldn’t count on it.

How Police have confiscated billions from law abiding Americans

 

By Doug Book, editor

Thirty years ago, the Department of Justice created a civil asset forfeiture program known as “Equitable Sharing.” Though originally created for the purpose of separating drug dealers from their ill-gotten assets and cash, since 2001 Equitable Sharing has been employed by the nation’s police to score $2.5 Billion in cash and assets from citizens “who were not charged with a crime and without a warrant being issued.” It is a high-dollar confiscation scam through which 298 police departments and 210 task forces have seized as much as 20 % of their operating budgets “…despite a federal ban [on the use of such money] to pay salaries or otherwise support budgets.”

A 2014 Washington Post article revealed that Equitable Sharing resulted in “…61,998 cash seizures made on highways and elsewhere since 9/11 without search warrants or indictments.” And this plunder was indeed shared equitably with $1.7 billion going to state and local authorities as “…the Department of Justice, Homeland Security and other federal agencies received $800 million. Half of the seizures were below $8,800.” The rather meager number of less than $8,800 hardly represents automobiles, airplanes or vacation homes confiscated from international drug rings.

How far removed are the nation’s police from the “Protect and Serve” mission we hear so much about? In 2012, John Anderson of San Clemente, California was pulled over by part-time deputy David Frye in Seward County Nebraska for “failing to signal promptly when changing lanes.” The stop for an issued warning ticket took just 13 minutes.

But according to court papers filed by Frye, he claimed to find “…several indicators of possible suspicious activity: an air freshener, a radar detector and inconsistencies in the driver’s description of his travels.” The Deputy asked Anderson if he was in possession of cocaine, heroin or large amounts of money and then sought permission to search Anderson’s BMW. When Anderson declined permission for the search, Frye “…radioed for a drug-sniffing dog, and [Anderson] had to wait another 36 minutes for the dog to arrive.” “I’m just going to, basically, have you wait here,” Frye told him. Upon arrival, the dog was said to have indicated the presence of drugs and although none were found, Frye confiscated $25,180 found in Anderson’s car.

And here’s the kicker. Frye handcuffed Anderson and told him he was under arrest. “Drug currency is illegal in Nebraska,” said Frye as he offered the undoubtedly shaken Anderson the following deal: “You’re going to be given an opportunity to disclaim the currencyto sign a form that says, ‘That is not my money. I don’t know anything about it. I don’t want to know anything about it. I don’t want to come back to court.’ ” Anderson was not read his Miranda rights until over an hour had passed in the “arrest” procedure. An hour later, after signing away his $25,000, Anderson was permitted to go. Fearing arrest, the possible destruction of career and reputation and how one might be treated over 1000 miles from home by a LEO obviously more interested in cash than justice, I wonder how many of us would follow Anderson’s example? Anderson has since gone to court to retrieve his money, saying he signed the waiver because he felt intimidated by Frye.

Deputy Frye committed a number of unconstitutional actions during his “arrest” of John Anderson. And though he will probably retrieve his money, Anderson will undoubtedly be required to sign away his right to sue, that being SOP for others who have decided to take a stand after having been intimidated by police into parting with money or property.

Could an innocent John Anderson have avoided the nerve-wracking hours of threat and intimidation suffered at the hands of a Deputy whose behavior was far more suggestive of John Dillinger than a member of law enforcement? The answer is yes. This week, Coach is Right will review the ways in which motorists may protect their rights from an officer trained to intimidate and confiscate rather than protect and serve.

Police steal $100’s of Millions from innocent Americans in “Stop and Seize” scams

By Doug Book,  editor

After 9/11, the federal government “…called on police to become the eyes and ears of homeland security on America’s highways.” But if the new, more aggressive agenda of seeking out suspicious individuals was embraced by officers as part of their interdiction training by the federal government, their policing behavior turned out to be worlds removed from the mundane yet somehow historically reassuring promise to “protect and serve” the American public. For law enforcement officers throughout the nation were eagerly learning and practicing the fine art of “policing for profit,” that is, the barely legal method of confiscating money and assets from generally guileless American citizens taught since childhood that police may be trusted.

Thirty years ago, the Department of Justice created a civil asset forfeiture program known as “Equitable Sharing.” Though originally used for the purpose of separating drug dealers from their assets and cash, since 2001, Equitable Sharing has been employed by the nation’s police to score $2.5 Billion in cash and assets from citizens “who were not charged with a crime and without a warrant being issued.” It is a high-dollar confiscation scam which is painfully easy to operate and, to ensure the successful practice of which, law enforcement has been dealt every trump. How can billions be confiscated from law abiding drivers?

Simply pull over a car for any violation, real or imagined. While issuing a warning or a ticket, “study [the driver or passengers] for signs of nervousness, including…clenched jaws or perspiration.” Police are then taught to look for “supposed indicators of criminal activity, which can include such things as trash on the floor of a vehicle, abundant energy drinks or air fresheners hanging from rear view mirrors.” Unbelievable.

It will be after the reading of these meaningless tea leaves that the officer will ask permission to search the vehicle. A legal refusal by the driver may cause drug sniffing dogs to be summoned, a thoroughly illegal use of the driver’s time as has already been determined by the Supreme Court. But how many Americans will be aware of such legal decisions guaranteeing their rights?

And now comes the fun part. Drivers across the nation have been found in possession of thousands of dollars in cash. It’s their own money, lawfully acquired, but police immediately conclude that it represents the ill-gotten gains of a drug sale. The money is confiscated on the spot and the driver must now prove that the cash was acquired in a legal manner should he ever wish to enjoy its return.

Unfortunately, given the cost of hiring attorneys to fight Big Brother, over 60% of law abiding people who are the VICTIMS of a crime committed by the police, will never retrieve their money. And for those who choose to fight, it is usually mandatory that they sign away their right to sue!

During the rest of the week, Coach is Right will relate the stories of honest citizens who have been robbed by the people they look to for protection while providing some of the knowledge necessary to avoid becoming a victim.

Why does the left keep aiming at our guns?

By Doug Book, editor

In 1996, Washington Post reporter and FOX News’ faux-conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer wrote “…the [Clinton Administration’s] assault weapons ban will have no significant effect either on the crime rate or on personal security.  Nonetheless, it is a good idea . . . .  Its only real justification is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public to the regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation.”

Of course, Krauthammer soon learned that the American people cannot be “desensitized” to the left’s arrogant enterprises of would-be gun theft.  On the contrary, recent in-your-face efforts by gun control zealots to force gun owners into 2nd Amendment defeatism have inevitably resulted in defiance, not submission.  The unparalleled explosion in gun sales upon the installation of Barack Hussein in the White House, the absolute refusal to appease the left after New Town and the unexpected appearance of armed freedom fighters at the Bundy ranch; all have served to give provide the nation’s Krauthammers with a real education.

And today the left is faced with what may be its greatest fear—a serious, firearm owning public which has drawn a line in the sand that a gun grabbing government is not permitted to cross.

But why did the government choose this fight? Why did a battle over 2nd Amendment guarantees take on the seeming appearance of life and death to the American left? Was the Democrat Party somehow convinced disarming the American people would be an easy win? Did Chuck Schumer and Diane Feinstein really believe a coupling of the left’s laughable “nobody wants to take your gun” mantra with a professed “common sense” approach to gun control had actually fooled the nation’s gun owners?

Anyone who believes liberal claims of heartbreak over 19,000 annual firearm suicides or even the yearly average of about 250 youngsters accidently killed by mishandled guns must first ask how the left can abhor these numbers yet celebrate some 1 million annual abortions.

In 2010, the FBI reported 8,874 firearm homicides in the United States. In 2011, the number was 8,583. Of these homicides, as many as half—and depending upon location, sometimes far more—are committed by gang members. As of 2011 there were some 1.4 million active gang members in the United States comprising 33,000 different gangs. The FBI determined gangs to be responsible for “…an average of 48 percent of violent crime in most jurisdictions and up to 90 percent in several others.” This means the American left has spent decades doing everything in its power to trample the Constitution and disarm the American public, all for the prevention of some 4,300 deaths.

Does anyone really believe that Democrats and other dedicated gun grabbers can get all broken up over 4,300 shootings?

News of Chicago’s St Sabina stiffing workers for $200,000 finds its way down the memory hole

 

By Doug Book, editor

On September 2nd, Chicago’s WGN carried a news story entitled “Chicago Summer Job Employees say they have not been paid.” Several hundred people who signed up for the city’s summer jobs program “One Summer Chicago” did not receive the paycheck they were expecting on August 29th.

But don’t bother looking for this story on the web today unless you are familiar with “webcache,” for the entire piece has been erased and chucked down the familiar memory hole. Why? It could have something to do with who owes these summer jobs workers the money! That would be the St Sabina Catholic Church, made infamous outside the Windy City by its priest, the dedicated Marxist, Obama-supporter, America hater and well known fighter for his own brand of “racial justice,” the Reverend Michael Pfleger.

In 2008, Pfleger decided he and his anti-gun minions should simply do away with John Riggio, the owner of Chuck’s Gun Shop in Riverdale.   “We’re going to snuff out John Riggio,” said Pfleger to a gathering of like-minded gun grabbers at a rally outside of Chuck’s. As a typically inclusive liberal, Pfleger added “we’re going to snuff out legislators that are voting against our gun laws.”  When questioned about his choice of terms, the good reverend claimed, “I was talking about exposing the gun shop owners and legislators who support them.” After all, everybody knows that “snuff out” really means expose. This provides just an idea of the general depravity of St. Sabina’s priest.

According to the current “Page Can’t Be Found” story, WGN investigated the complaints of the unpaid One Summer Chicago workers to find they had been part of a mentorship program through St Sabina. They told WGN they “were not given an explanation as to why” they hadn’t been paid. The only information they received had come from a supervisor who wrote in a text message that he also didn’t know why no one had been paid.  “I don’t know when we’ll be paid,” he continued. “As soon as I get more information, I’ll let you know.”

Upon continuing to dig, WGN discovered from a city department spokesman that “St Sabina is responsible for paying workers up front and then submitting paperwork to their city for reimbursement.” A call to St Sabina and WGN was informed that the non-payment “came down to cash flow issues.”

“Because there were three pay periods in the month of August, we didn’t have the liquidity in our accounts.” This was according to Lisa Ramsey, Director of St Sabina’s Employment Resource Center. According to the WGN story, Ramsey said the Church is waiting on “about $200,000 in city funds in order to issue paychecks to these workers.”

The folks who worked through St Sabina for the One Summer Chicago program had better hope these are NOT funds the Church expects as reimbursement for paychecks not yet provided!!! St Sabina has to pay FIRST and THEN get reimbursed. That’s just sorta how it works.

As for the Reverend Reverend, he has been out among the flock, offering $5,000 to anyone who can provide information as to the identity of an individual who killed a 9 year old boy in Chicago. This is certainly commendable, but shouldn’t Reverend Pfleger take care of the business of St Sabina before offering rewards around town?
