Let The Protestors, Arrests Begin In Arizona. . .

Although U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton on Wednesday threw out some of the more controversial parts of SB 1070, temporarily blunting the new law’s impact, hundreds of demonstrators gathered at dawn to protest. They marched from the state Capitol and held a prayer vigil before moving on to the federal courthouse, where police in riot gear waited.

A few hours later, demonstrators blocked downtown streets as they chanted, “Hey ho, hey ho, SB 1070 has got to go.” They also converged on the office of controversial Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, yelling, “Sheriff Joe, we are here, we will not live in fear.”

Three people were arrested at the courthouse. At least eight protesters who approached a police line were taken into custody, as were two dozen others who sat down in the middle of a street and blocked traffic.
In Tucson, traffic on I-19 was briefly snarled after protesters threw tires, paint buckets and glass onto the roadway. One person was arrested.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio: I’ll Enforce Arizona’s Immigration Law

Maricopa County, Ariz., tells Newsmax he will jail any protesters who attempt to block his jail on Thursday when provisions of his state’s tough new immigration law take effect.  Arpaio also says it’s “great” if undocumented aliens react to the new law and his strict anti-illegal immigration agenda by moving back to Mexico or to the “sanctuary state” of California, and challenges President Barack Obama to invite him to the White House for a “wine summit” to discuss illegal immigration.

Arpaio, whose county includes most of the Phoenix metropolitan area, promotes himself as “America’s toughest sheriff.” He has limited county inmates to two meals a day, banned “sexually explicit material” in prison, reinstituted chain gangs, and set up a “tent city” as an extension of the Maricopa County Jail.
On Wednesday a judge blocked the most controversial sections of Arizona’s new law and put them on hold. The law will still take effect on Thursday, but without some of the …

“NOT the ‘whiteman’s b—-.’”

Ieshuh Griffin, an independent running for a downtown Milwaukee seat in the state Assembly, wants to use the phrase, “NOT the ‘whiteman’s b—-.’” 
A legislative candidate from Wisconsin can’t use a profane, racially charged phrase to describe herself on the ballot, an election oversight board decided Wednesday. But the state’s Government Accountability Board voted to bar that wording, agreeing with a staff recommendation that it is pejorative and therefore not allowed.

State law allows independent candidates to have five words describing themselves placed after their names on the ballot as long as it’s not pejorative, profane, discriminatory or includes an obscene word or phrase.

Griffin, who is Black, argued her case to the five White, retired judges on the board that regulates elections. She said the phrase was protected free speech. “It’s a freedom of expression,” she said. “It’s not racial. It’s not a slur.” She convinced three of the judges that the wording should be allowed…

Voter Intimidation I’d Say So!

If this isn’t evidence of a war against whites, I don’t know what is. I saw this tonight on the news I screamed about what was said about how people aka ‘Whites’ on the internet edit and repeat lies. HELLO, what is MSM nothing more then LIES and not telling the whole story or reporting news at all! The Internet scares the crap out of MSM. Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Stupid question but what is something you can’t do without?

I asked this stupid question because this is something I saw this afternoon on the IFC and it’s frightening and I guess something we always take for granted is going to be there.  Just one more reason to love or hate the Government and NAFTA.

At the 1994 Summit of the Americas in Miami, Florida, the leaders of the 34 nations of Canada, the United States, Central and South America and the Caribbean (excluding Cuba), agreed to sign a hemisphere-wide trade and investment pact called the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA). At this meeting, former President Bill Clinton pledged to fulfill former President George Bush’s dream of a trade agreement stretching from Anchorage to Tierra del Fuego. As envisioned, the FTAA would be the largest free trade zon…

Texas Mayor Kills Teen Daughter and Commits Suicide in Home

URGENT: The mayor of an affluent Dallas suburb shot her 19-year-old daughter in the head then killed herself in a shocking murder-suicide that stunned friends and neighbors in quiet Coppell, Texas. The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s office ruled Wednesday that 55-year-old Jayne Peters shot herself in the head after killing her daughter Corinne, who had just graduated from Coppell High School and was bound for the University of Texas at Austin in the fall. Police discovered the bodies of the mother and daughter Tuesday evening after the mayor failed to show up for a city meeting. Police officers went to their home after the usually prompt mayor failed to arrive at a city council meeting and did not call to explain her absence, said city spokeswoman Sharon Logan. By late Wednesday morning, a small collection of flowers, wreaths and cards decorated the front porch of the Peters’ home. A printed letter said: “Please know that you are loved no matter what happ…

DREAM Act bill would have most impact in California, Texas

DREAM Act bill could provide legal status for some young illegal immigrants. Immigrants in Texas and California would be the biggest winners if Congress and President Barack Obama support legislation allowing young illegal immigrants to acquire U.S. legal status based on education and military service, according to a study released last week.

State may eliminate use of student testing projection measurement

State may eliminate use of student testing projection measurement
Facing stinging criticism, the Texas Education Agency may retool or eliminate the practice of counting as passing students who fail state-mandated tests but who are expected to pass in later years.The Texas Projection Measure was first used last year and gives schools credit under the Texas and federal academic accountability systems for students who don't pass the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills but are expected to do so within three years.In a letter sent Thursday to district administrators throughout the state, Education Commissioner Robert Scott said that he will review the measure because students' and educators' "hard work is being overshadowed by criticism of the use of TPM for state accountability purposes."Scott could not be reached for comment Friday. In the letter, he asked for feedback on several options, including the suspension of the measurement, continued use of…

Israeli Agriculture Ministry employee sold fake chemical permits

Police arrested an employee at the Agriculture Ministry on Thursday on suspicion of selling fake permits to purchase a controlled chemical pesticide. The suspect, Uri Haim, allegedly sold permits to farmers that allowed them to buy 67 tons of a substance called Methyl Bromide, which is closely regulated because of its harmful effects on the environment, over the last two years.

United States In the United States methyl bromide is regulated as a pesticide under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA; 7 U.S.C. 136 et seq.) and as a hazardous substance under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA; 42 U.S.C. 6901 et seq.), and is subject to reporting requirements under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA; 42 U.S.C. 11001 et seq.).

U.S. Chamber of Commerce – Antiboycott

U.S. Chamber of Commerce – Antiboycott
So in other words….”THERE IS A LAW HERE IN THE USA THAT MAKES IT ILLEGAL TO BOYCOTT ISREAL!!!!!!!



Antiboycott IssuesBackground
During the mid-1970s the United States adopted two laws that seek to counteract the participation of U.S. citizens in other nation’s economic boycotts or embargoes. These “antiboycott” laws are the 1977 amendments to the Export Administration Act and the Ribicoff Amendment to the 1976 Tax Reform Act. Boycotts of Israel in some Arab nations — although less stringent today than in past years — are the principal foreign economic boycotts that U.S. companies must be concerned with today. The antiboycott laws, however, apply to all boycotts imposed by foreign countries that are unsanctioned by the United States.
It is currently a federal criminal offense under U.S. “antiboycott laws” for any U.S. person to participate in another nation’s boycotts or embargoes of third countries. The definition…

Find Reveals Early Humans Who Endured Harsh Cold

Scientists have depicted early humans as wimps who couldn’t hack it in chilly northern climates, but a newly discovered cache of stone tools is forcing archaeologists to revise their opinions. Scientists reported at a news conference here today that creatures much like us managed to carve out a living at a spot on the coast of England roughly 900,000 years ago, when the area would have resembled today’s southern Scandinavia in climate and landscape. Never before have early humans been shown to live so far north.


The finding, which will be published in Thursday’s edition of Nature, is the latest to show that scientists have perpetually underestimated the humans who lived thousands and millions of years ago. Accumulating evidence shows, for example, that Neanderthals were not the stupid brutes of public image but beings capable of symbolic thought.





The people whose tools were found in coastal England probably moved there during a warm period, but they proved the…

Racist pols go straight back to disarming blacks

‘Reasonable’ restrictions on gun ownership the poor can’t meet

Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Chicago’s handgun ban. Gun rights groups hailed the ruling as a seminal moment in their ongoing fight to roll back restrictive gun-control legislation. As far as the National Rifle Association (NRA) is concerned, McDonald settles the matter once and for all: “This decision makes absolutely clear that the Second Amendment protects the God-given right of self-defense for all law-abiding Americans, period.” Be that as it may, the McDonald decision is really a victory for and about black Americans. At least it should be.  America’s gun-control laws owe their genesis to the post-Civil War era, when white southerners moved to disarm freed slaves. The former Confederate states’ successful efforts to restrict gun ownership had disastrous long-term consequences for black Americans’ life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

Africa not the only country overrun with the epidemic of a Hiv/AIDS

Baton Rouge area second, New Orleans third in nation in AIDS  The Baton Rouge metropolitan area ranks second in the nation in AIDS case rates, and New Orleans is No. 3, according to 2008 statistics released recently by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Miami ranks No. 1 in the nation, according to CDC data.

Sunday's Advocate reported that last year, the Baton Rouge metro area ranked No. 3 in the nation for AIDS case rates, according to the 2007 data.
The CDC uses the U.S. Census Bureau's Metropolitan Statistical Area to define the Baton Rouge metro area. It consists of nine parishes: East and West Baton Rouge, Ascension, Iberville, Pointe Coupee, East and West Feliciana, Livingston and St. Helena.

Will the NRA endorse Harry Reid

The National Rifle Association  is in unfamiliar terrain on the conservative firing range this election year: It’s the target.

The conservative Netroots are abuzz over the possibility that the NRA may endorse Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). This would be the second major slight by the NRA for political conservatives — the gun group also just negotiated a big exemption on a campaign finance bill loathed by the right.

Conservatives say there’s a clear political calculation at work: If Reid loses, he’s almost certain to be succeeded as majority leader by a fierce gun-control advocate, either Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin or New York Sen. Chuck Schumer.

The NRA isn't even denying this line of reasoning but says it hasn’t made a decision about whether to endorse Reid.  “The Second Amendment and the National Rifle Association are always one bad incident away from politicians like Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin exploiting their agenda of gun control,” said Andrew Ar…

Archaeologists Begin Dig on Buried Stone Circle Ten Times Bigger Than Stonehenge

Archaeologists have begun a major dig to unearth the hidden mysteries of a buried ancient stone circle site that is ten times bigger than Stonehenge. The enormous 4,000 year old Marden Henge, in Wiltshire, is Britain’s largest prehistoric structure stretching for 10.5 hectares, the equivalent of 10 football pitches. English Heritage is carrying out a six-week dig hoping to reveal the secrets behind the giant henge which has baffled historians for centuries.

Most of the Neolithic henge has been destroyed over the years due to farming and erosion but minor excavations in 41 years ago estimate the site to between 2,000 and 2,400BC.
Marden Henge was once a 45ft high mound surrounded by a water filled ditch which was used for sacrificial offerings.
Although the henge no longer has its vast stone circle it has a large puzzling sunken circular feature which is almost unheard of at Neolithic sites.
A team of 15 archaeologists and historians believe the dig could show the ancie…

Chicago Mayor Daley plans strict handgun law

A community comes out to raise awareness about the need to stop violence in their neighborhoods.

With the city’s ban on handguns certain to be overturned, Mayor Richard Daley on Thursday introduced what city officials say would be the strictest ordinance in the United States to regulate such weapons.
The measure, which draws from ordinances across the country, would ban gun shops in Chicago and prohibit gun owners from stepping outside their homes, even onto their porches or garages, with a handgun.
Daley announced his ordinance at a park on the city’s South Side three days after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Americans have a right to own a gun for self-defense anywhere they live. The City Council is expected to vote on it Friday.
“As long as I’m mayor, we will never give up or give in to gun violence that continues to threaten every part of our nation, including Chicago,” said the mayor, who was accompanied by activists, city officials, and parents whose te…

Somali who attacked prophet cartoonist Westergaard charged with terrorism

Denmark’s top prosecutor on Friday charged a Somali man with terrorism for allegedly trying to kill a cartoonist who caricatured the Prophet Muhammad.

Joergen Steen Soerensen said the man, who cannot be named under a court order, wanted to “seriously frighten the population” and destabilize Denmark in the January attack on Kurt Westergaard.


The 28-year-old allegedly forced himself into Westergaard’s home — armed with a knife and an axe — trying to break into the panic room where the Danish cartoonist was hiding.  Police, who had been alerted to the scene, shot the attacker in the hand and leg as he tried to escape. Westergaard, age 74, was not hurt in the attack.

The suspect, who has been in custody since the attack, claimed he only wanted to frighten Westergaard and has denied all charges except of possessing weapons.  Soerensen said the suspect was also charged with attempted murder of a police officer. If found guilty, he faces a life sentence, which in Den…

Arizona to Release Immigration Training Plan for Police Officers

Guide to Selected U.S. Travel and Identity Documents
Prepared by the Forensic Document Laboratory

Arizona officials plan to release a training program Thursday designed to teach police officers to enforce a tough new crackdown on illegal immigration without racially profiling.

An hour-long video and supporting paperwork will be sent to all 170 Arizona police agencies and publicly released Thursday morning.

Officials released an outline for the video in May.





It will emphasize the importance of professionalism, ethics and integrity, as well as an officer's duty to protect civil rights, according to the outline.

Retired immigration agents also will describe how federal officers are trained to avoid racial profiling and the documents that immigrants are required to carry.

And officers will be taught how to contact federal immigration authorities or local officers certified by the federal government to determine someone's immigration status.

Gov. Jan Brewer ordered the Ariz…
