Around 6 a.m. on Christmas Eve, and after taking turns running the engine and napping, Withey’s truck ran out of gas and the trio was forced to find proper shelter.

“Off to the left, I could see there was a school about 600, 700 feet away from us. I knew the power would be on, there would be heat in there and I was guaranteeing there would be food in there,” Withey told the station.

After some quick thinking, Withey identified others around him who were also stranded and decided to break into the school.

Withey and his crew, a total of 25, including seven senior citizens, made their way into Pine Hill Primary Center and took shelter — respectfully setting up only what was needed. They set up their main area in the cafeteria, helping themselves only to the food they needed and nothing in the fully stocked freezer, according to police.

I found it astonishing that he had to break in.

One would think with the approaching storm, the Gooferment  — at all levels  — would order all public buildings to be unlocked.  Same for the Churches.  I’m sure every school has a Principal and a Custodian.  Someone should be authorized to take emergency action.

I got the series of threatening letters from my DMV about how I needed to renew early to get Real ID or I wouldn’t be able to fly, and that I’d need to make an appointment at the nearest office and bring a utility bill, social security card, and various other things to prove who I was.

Since I had a passport, I didn’t really need a Real ID, so I kept putting it off. And then my DL expired a few months after COVID hit. When I went online to make an appointment, it told me I could renew online instead—and the DL that arrived in the mail a week later was a Real ID one. No paperwork needed after all, which really inspires confidence in that system.

In January, Colorado police officers confined a 77-year-old grandmother named Ruby Johnson for hours in a squad car without even offering a glass of water during a time when she was due to take her daily medications—why?

Nobody told Johnson what was going on when she opened her front door to a SWAT team assembled on her lawn. Much later, she found out about a stolen truck—reportedly with six guns and an iPhone stashed inside—wrongly believed to be parked in her garage based on no evidence other than her home being located within a wide blue circle drawn by a “Find My” iPhone app. Now she’s suing a Denver cop for conducting what she believes was an illegal search of her home based on what her legal team describes as either an intentionally or recklessly defective application for a search warrant that was “wholly devoid of probable cause.” Because of the allegedly improper raid, the retired US Postal Service worker had to “endure an unreasonable search and seizure, unlawful police confinement, and severe physical and emotional distress.”

End qualified immunity.

When the police are stupid, untrained, or just criminal, they need to be punished.

Police investigating allegations a farmer in Iowa murdered up to 70 women and dumped their bodies in a well are testing soil at the property in Iowa.

Lucy Studey McKiddy, 53, claims that her father, Donald Dean Studey, was a serial killer who forced her and her siblings to dump the bodies of women he killed into a 100ft well.

She said that Studey, who died in March 2013 aged 75, was ‘routinely drunk’ and liked to kill women by smashing or kicking in their heads inside a trailer.

*** end quote ***

My first thought was didn’t someone in Iowa notice that 70 women disappeared.

My second thought was why didn’t Lucy Studey McKiddy come forward sooner — 2013 might have been a good time if she was afraid of the 75 year old man.  Sometime between now and the last 40! Years would have been better.

Of course, it’s the Gooferment’s fault for not discovering this sooner or allow women to defend themselves with a handgun.  If I had a daughter, then I’d be sure that she knew how to defend herself. Argh!

Of course, if prostitution was legal, then it would not be so easy for men to pickup and kill women. 

End victimless crimes like drugs and prostitution.  We’d all be safer.

First, the bill amounts to a direct assault upon religious liberty. The anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, anti-Muslim, anti-religion, anti-God, secular mob will undoubtedly use this law to target people of faith. They will target non-profit organizations. They will target churches. They will target religious schools. You won’t be able to conduct business under the premise of the biblical definition of marriage or you will likely come under fire. As Rachel Bovard at the Conservative Partnership Institute notes, it even creates a cultural justification for market institutions such as banks to discriminate against people with traditional views, dovetailing effectively with the advent of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) social credit scores that can and are being utilized to reduce or eliminate one’s access to financial services based upon social values.

Third — and perhaps most importantly — the bill will inherently become a legal catch-all for the Democratic Party’s radical progressive agenda, which hinges upon the deliberate Marxist goal of destroying the nuclear family and ultimately deconstructing our society’s moral fiber.

I fail to understand how the Gooferment — at any level — can “regulate” “marriage”.

We currently have partnership law.  Anyone can form a legal partnership.  

Where in the Constitution is there a Federal enumerated power to regulate “marriage”?

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The Gooferment should have NO role in “flood Insurance”

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2022/10/flood_insurance_a_modest_proposal.html

Flood Insurance: A Modest Proposal

*** begin quote ***

All of this raises a simple question. What is the best way to deal with this sort of natural disaster? Where I live, it’s an inconvenience from which I can easily recover. That’s a lot like Tornado Alley where some people die each year, but most are unaffected. And even though California gets a lot of earthquakes, most people aren’t seriously affected and, contrary to Red State fever dreams, California won’t slide into the Pacific Ocean with the next temblor, thus favorably altering the political balance of the country. In short, there are natural challenges everywhere. But a few places are more challenged than others.

*** and ***

If every property owner had to purchase flood/hurricane insurance on an open market, it’s likely a lot would not be able to come up with the scratch. It would be just too rich for their blood. But in 1968, the Feds decided that it would be good to “help” out coastal communities. They would have to do some land use planning, but ultimately, the lure of higher local tax bases won out. Over time, subsidized rates became the norm as President Obama finalized them in 2014.

Subsidized flood insurance means that sensitive barrier island ecologies are disrupted by massive cancers of concrete, steel, and lumber. When a storm at sea leads to high waves and beach erosion, the State of Florida dumps millions of dollars harvested from inland on those beaches in the form of megatons of sand. “Someone’s home is about to be washed out to sea!”

*** and ***

We must get the government out of the flood insurance business. Stopping it overnight is probably a bad idea because current owners have a legal “reliance interest” in the program. So a stepwise approach must be found. The simplest approach might be called the “Hurricane Ian” solution. Every building wiped out by the storm would fall under this proposal.

If you lost your home or business due to the storm and were covered by Federal flood insurance, the Feds should pay you the full pre-storm value of the property, including the dirt. Then, the Feds would turn the property over to the state for full demolition and return to nature with a deed restriction that prevents construction on the site. Obviously, there would be an exception for basic park facilities such as parking lots and restrooms, but residences of any sort would be completely forbidden. In a subsequent storm, those would be relatively inexpensive and easy to rebuild.

In our current example, Sanibel Island would become a State Park nature preserve instead of a high-end residential community. The high rise resorts would go away, either because room rents were too high for most or because storm damage was severe. Much of Fort Myers Beach would undergo the same treatment. But neither area would be eligible for building.

*** and ***

The only losers in this approach would be the people who simply “can’t” give up their beach lifestyle and the municipalities that would see their tax base shrink. I’ll shed a few crocodile tears for them.

Utter proof the FBI framed Trump and shielded Hunter
By Andrew C. McCarthy
October 12, 2022 9:19pm Updated

*** begin quote ***

More to the point, though, that the FBI offered to pay such an exorbitant sum in hopes Steele’s anti-Trump claims could be backed up is proof positive the bureau knew these claims were not verified.

That is key. The rules of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and the Justice Department mandate the FBI must verify information before submitting it to the court in applying for surveillance warrants. Even though it could not prove the Steele allegations and had every reason to know they were exaggerated if not out-and-out false, the FBI relied on the Steele claims in sworn applications.

It gets worse. The FBI obtained FISC surveillance warrants to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in October 2016 and mid-January 2017, representing to the court that Trump appeared to be in a corrupt conspiracy with the Kremlin. Finally, in late January, the FBI interviewed Danchenko, who debunked Steele’s reporting. Nevertheless, even after speaking with Danchenko, the bureau continued relying on Steele’s allegations when — again under oath — it persuaded the court to extend the surveillance in April and June 2017.

*** and ***

Of course, what the FBI didn’t mention was that what Danchenko had been “truthful and cooperative” about was the fact Steele’s claims were sheer nonsense. Thus, FISC judges were led to believe Danchenko had verified Steele’s reporting when the truth was just the opposite.

*** end quote ***

​So when do we disband the FBI? And, send people to jail!

Specifically, all those that testified and swore in the FISA courts should be convicted.

If they are lawyers, disbarred.

How a 100-year-old miscalculation drained the Colorado River
An epic drought in the West is drying up the river. But that’s only part of the story.
By Benji Jones@BenjiSJones Sep 23, 2022, 8:00am EDT

*** begin quote ***

In the early 20th century, the US Geological Survey sent out this guy named Eugene Clyde LaRue to try and measure the Colorado River. LaRue started to see that, beyond the time horizon that we’d been measuring the river so far [a couple of recent decades], there were some really big droughts. He concluded in a 1916 report that the river is subject to big droughts on timescales of 10-to-20 to 50-to-100 years. It doesn’t just stay wet.

The negotiators of the Colorado River Compact — the foundational document for figuring out how to divide up the river and decide who gets what — needed this information. They needed science. But they came together to figure this out without LaRue. They sidelined him. They ignored his science that said there’s been big droughts.

Instead, the negotiators looked at a much more recent period [of time] that had been extraordinarily and unusually wet. They said the river’s got plenty of water to build all these farms and to build all these cities. They just ignored the science because it was inconvenient.

Minnesota Fraud Scheme

Nearly 50 people in Minnesota have been charged with laundering an estimated $250M in pandemic relief aid, which was intended to provide meals to children from lower-income families. The case is the largest fraud scheme to take advantage of federal pandemic programs, the US Justice Department said yesterday.

Prosecutors claim 47 individuals tied to Minnesota-based nonprofit Feeding Our Future falsely reported serving tens of thousands of meals to children across 250 sites and sought reimbursement for the cost of those meals from the Department of Agriculture’s Federal Child Nutrition Program. The individuals then allegedly laundered the funds through shell companies to buy luxury cars, property, jewelry, and other personal items. They have been charged with conspiracy, wire fraud, money laundering, and bribery (see details).

To date, more than $8B in suspected pandemic fraud has been found, including in more than 1,500 criminal cases.

Prison inmates made out like bandits during the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to internal data provided by the IRS, more than 1.1 million incarcerated inmates received stimulus checks, totaling over $1.3 billion dollars.

In a letter obtained by the Washington Examiner, Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) said of the million incarcerated inmates, 163,000 of them were serving life sentences.

“It’s outrageous that those who inflicted pain on a family or community by committing a crime received a single dime from the government during the pandemic. If anything, the funds should have gone to the victims who would have been better served,” Bacon said.

As the country is facing dwelling inflation, the government doled out a massive amount of paychecks to people as the Biden administration refused to allow hard-working Americans make money of their own.

This may be one way in which a socialist-like government may have begun America: covertly employ thousands or millions of people in the FBI or other national secret police entity who are told they are protecting America, while in reality they are merely being used to covertly stalk, harass, intimidate, and in some cases significantly harm or neutralize innocent persons.

This type of government employment would be much like being in the mafia: once a person is employed by the FBI or other government secret police entity, they “know too much” about the methods, technologies, and potential crimes of the FBI or other secret police entity.

Such persons would be fully dependent on the FBI or secret police for their monetary survival, and, due to “knowing too much,” would likely be unable to obtain employment elsewhere. The more people the FBI or other secret police entity employs, then the more people who are fully dependent on the specific type of government employment which may be nearly impossible to get out of. It is either do what the potentially corrupt boss says, or be without employment.

Forget the media propaganda like the movie with Jimmy Stewart or the TV series with Efram Zimbalist Jr.

Think about the power that J. Edgar Hoover weirded with his files on every politician and celebrity. 

Time to shut down the Deep State and its corruption.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The 600,000 tires the Gooferment sunk have come back to be a problem

Wrightsville Beach renourishment project uncovers hundreds of thousands of tires in the ocean

Wrightsville Beach, N.C. — The shrinking shoreline at Wrightsville Beach is in desperate need of sand.

“We can’t get our ocean rescue vehicles from point A to point B in some places, because there’s just not enough beach,” Mayor Darryl Mills said.

Rebuilding that usually happens every three years is behind schedule. Officials said they have faced numerous challenges since the beach was last filled with fresh sand in 2018.

Wrightsville Beach has sourced its sand from nearby Masonboro Inlet since the 1960s, but a new interpretation of the Coastal Barrier Resources Act (CBRA), dictates that no federal dollars can be used to move sand from a CBRA-protected zone (Masonboro Inlet) to a non-CBRA zone (Wrightsville Beach). Wrightsville Beach’s renourishment is 100% federally-funded, according to local records.

The Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF) said it placed more than 600,000 tires off the North Carolina coast in the 1970s and early 1980s, but said it discontinued the practice in 1983.

“We don’t know the exact number of tires that were deployed back then,” said Patricia Smith, the Communications Director for the NC Division of Marine Fisheries. “Basically, the Division just doesn’t have reliable deployment records from that period.”

The artificial reef closest to the potential sand harvest location for Wrightsville Beach is called the Meares Harris Reef, located about 2.5 miles offshore and spanning 649 acres. That site includes other artificial reefs made of concrete pipes and tugboats that serve as fish habitats, but the aging tires are proving to be problematic.

I guess the artificial reef project wasn’t well thought out.  And the Gooferment only has itself to blame.  Of course, the Taxpayers pay for the mistake.

Argh!

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Make poor children pay for their own misery?

California counties siphon Social Security benefits from some foster kids
by Jeanne Kuang July 22, 2022

California counties regularly take the Social Security benefits of foster youth who are disabled or whose parents have died. Advocates say it amounts to children paying for their own foster care.

*** and ***

Tanner said Butte County, as her guardian, took her survivor benefits of about $1,200 a month until she graduated high school and was no longer eligible for them. The money likely totaled tens of thousands of dollars over her time in state custody.

Ribbing the dead and little defenseless children is what the Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats do best.

This is the Pepuls Republik of Kaliforkneeah, but I bet it happens everywhere.

Vile thieves.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Protectionism — Gooferment picks winners and losers — guess which group you’re in?

FROM “Cafe Hayek”: Gary Galles helps us to better understand protectionism.

Helping Y’all Understand Protectionism
Gary M. Galles – July 22, 2022 

*** begin quote ***

Protectionism provides special treatment for political favorites at the expense of others’ rights and well-being. In fact, it harms all American consumers not given special protection, by removing options they chose for themselves (as illustrated by the fact that undoing protectionist policies could lower prices paid by Americans at a time when rapid inflation is supposedly political topic number one), yet it persists.

*** end quote ***

Not only does it harm “others”; it trains “We, The Sheeple” that they can use Gooferment to live off other’s productivity.

Argh!

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Secret Service ignore the records retention requirements; I wonder why?

Scrutiny of Secret Service Builds Over Lost Jan. 6 Texts

The Secret Service is being pressed about missing text messages from Jan. 5 and Jan. 6, 2021. The Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general gave the Secret Service a deadline of Tuesday to review the text messages of 24 specific employees for material relating to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot — a request that turned up only one new text conversation. The Secret Service says that the majority of the texts in question were deleted as part of a pre-planned “device-replacement program” at the agency. The deletion reportedly came after the IG had requested electronic communications records…

Convent how the Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats don’t have to follow their own laws and regulations. 

Now tell me that their carrier (AT&T, Verizon, somebody) doesn’t have copies of those texts?

I thing their Head IT honcho should be immediately fired.

Argh!

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Biden to allow abortions by executive diktat?

Who Knew That The Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Protects A Right To Abortion?
The Biden Administration is about to walk into another eviction moratorium debacle.
Josh Blackman | 7.19.2022 11:15 PM

Politico reports that the Biden Administration has potentially settled on an executive-action response to Dobbs:

White House officials plotting the administration’s post-Roe response are weighing a narrow public health directive aimed at safeguarding nationwide access to abortion pills, three people familiar with the discussions told POLITICO.

The Biden team has zeroed in on that authority in recent days. They consider it the most feasible of the White House’s limited options for protecting abortion rights, and have concluded that it could have the most immediate on-the-ground impact while also quelling Democrats’ demands for stronger action. . . .

The proposal would rely on powers under the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act reserved for public health emergencies to shield doctors, pharmacies and others from liability for providing abortion pills to people across the country — even those who live in states that have outlawed or severely restricted the procedure. .

*** end quote ***

Seems like this is a transparent attempt to circumvent overturn of Roe by executive diktat.

I would assume that SCOTUS would quickly take cases to set things straight.

And Red-State governors would “nullify” the Federal diktats.

Sigh!

Not like we have an real problems to work on like inflation and the backfiring of Russian sanctions.

Argh!
