Got Snow?

These folks do!!

And a bit much!!!

The Alaska National Guard reported more than 18 feet of snow has fallen on Cordova in the past weeks, although theNationalWeatherService did not immediately have a measurement.

I am personally liking this bit of Gorebal Warming we are experiencing!!
Nice, nice nice…

But I am thinking Cordova is not!!

18 feet? Wow…..and I thought the 7 feet or  so we got last year was a bit much….

And apparently they “Got Snow” here also…

Since Thursday, the Vorarlberg region has seen two to three metres (6-10ft) of snow.

Anti-Gun Vigils Held in Mpls, Duluth

And what is an “anti” gun vigil going to do?

Please tell me?

A gun is a tool..

An inanimate object..

It is “used” to commit a crime, murder, assault..Control others.

Much like a club, a knife, a car, your fists, a rope…

It is also used to protect, provide, defend.

It is an inanimate object, pieces of metal, plastic, wood, brass, lead, copper and does only what you use it for..

Like you are being used, your protesting a tool..

Your being used by those just as clueless as you…

You are lemmings, unthinking, wanting to be unaccountable and depend on others.

I’ll keep my guns and use them as tools, to protect myself from those whom are lawless and out to take or harm me or mine, to keep my Freedom and Liberty…to provide for me and mine.

Because you sure as hell won’t!!!

Candles and Violence..

Have what to do with each other?
Well apparently those Anti Violence groups that want to disarm those that feel a need to protect themselves and their families and
NOT have to rely on others, (we that work in EMS realize how fast or not 911 works and know and accept the fact that you are responsible for yourself), should be disarmed and left helpless to by exploited by others.

These anti freedom groups felt the need to promote a “Light a Candle” day.

Well so did Weerd..
And others likewise felt a need to support the right to protect oneself and NOT be a victim, which goes against the Anti’s screed of being a victim is better then protecting oneself and ridding the world of scum.

As described here, one stopped violence from being done against him. Which of course is completely against the Anti’s screed.
And there any many today, whom have a candle lit and ae ready and willing to not be victims…
GunFreeZone..with some apt tales of folks and guns….
Or Linoge
Or Brigid…whom as usual, well go read it!!
And many more

So light a candle, against violence and make sure you can prevent violence, not be creating more victims, but by showing those that would bring harm that you will not be a victim and refuse to be one.
Ever…

Will you?

Below is a letter that Congressman John Kline sent out to his constituants regarding the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012. Because there is so much confusion about whether or not it allows for the indefinite internment of American prisoners, we felt it important enough to share it with you.

Dear Friend,

Thank you for contacting me to share your opposition to detainee provisions within the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). I appreciate learning of your views and am glad to have the opportunity to correct some misinformation.

As a member of the bipartisan, bicameral conference committee responsible for reconciling differences between competing versions of the NDAA, I can assure you there is no provision within the final version of the NDAA that expands the President’s authority to detain United States citizens. Under no circumstances would I support a bill that would infringe upon the liberties of American citizens in such an egregious manner.

This bill does affirm that the military may lawfully detain individuals who are engaged in armed conflict with the United States, as stated by the Authorization of the Use of Military Force. The new requirement for military custody only applies to foreign individuals who are part of or provide substantial support to Al Qaeda or associated forces AND have participated in the course of planning or carrying out an attack or attempted attack against the United States or its coalition partners. This provision facilitates greater intelligence gathering from foreign terrorists while explicitly exempting U.S. citizens. Section 1021 states "Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States." and Section 1022 states "The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States." Full explanations and the text of the NDAA are available for your examination at http://armedservices.house.gov/index.cfm/ndaa-home?p=ndaa

Let me close by reiterating that I will not support any measure that infringes on the liberties of American citizens. As I serve you in Congress I will keep my commitment to national security and our Constitutional rights.

Thank you again for contacting me. Please feel free to do so again regarding any issue of importance to you.

Sincerely,
John Kline
Member of Congress

Additional Information About

FY12 NDAA Detainee Provisions – Sections 1021 & 1022

* Both Administrations have detained individuals who are members of Al-Qaeda, Taliban, and associated groups and the courts have affirmed their ability to do so under the U.S Constitution.
* The specific authorization for detention was under the September 11, 2011 attacks Authorization for Use of Military Force (circa 2001) – and not stated in statute. This provision now in the NDAA holds the Administration accountable and doesn’t allow them to infringe on our constitutional rights.
* The NDAA explicitly states that authority in statute, on the exact same terms as the courts have recognized it with one exception. The bill adds explicit protections for American citizens – even American citizens who have joined Al Qaeda to take up arms against the United States.

1. Reaffirming the lawful detention of certain individuals from Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and associated forces engaged in armed conflict with the United States. The FY12 NDAA reaffirmed the lawful detention of certain individuals, pursuant to the Authorization of Use of Military Force, that are in engaged in the armed conflict with the United States. This provision does not address or extend new authority to detainee U.S citizens – Section 1021(e) states, "Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States Citizens, lawful resident aliens of the US or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the U.S. The section explicitly states that nothing in the AUMP pre-empts or trumps existing law or authorities for detention of U.S citizens.

2. Requirement for military custody for foreign Al-Qaeda terrorists. In cases such as the Christmas Day bomber, where a foreign terrorist is caught in a plot to attack the U.S, this establishes a new requirement for military custody. This provision only applies to individuals who are part of, or substantially supporting, Al-Qaeda or associated forces and have participated in the course of planning or carrying out an attack or attempted attack against the U.S or its coalition partners. It is vital that terrorists bent on waging war against American freedom are treated according to the laws of war, not like simply criminals.

* Provides a waiver for Sec Def when requirement is not in the national security interests of U.S.

* Facilitates greater intelligence gathering from foreign terrorists.

* Explicitly exempts U.S citizens from the requirement – Section 1022(a)(4)(b)(1) – The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States. Concerns from some groups that the President or Executive Agencies have labeled Christians and Tea Party members as terrorists would still not make this section of the NDAA applicable to them since they are afforded due process under the Constitution as U.S citizens.
