Sessions Reminds California: “There’s No Secession, No Nullification”

Yesterday, we pointed out that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has finally acted to stop California from ignoring federal immigration authorities and laws, with the DOJ suing the state to nullify Assembly Bill 450, which stops private companies from voluntarily cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

And shortly after the suit was filed, Sessions warned chided the state for disobeying federal laws, saying American law provides no room for secession or nullification, per the Hill

Isn’t there a quote about “State Officials” and non-cooperation?

Sounds like something Ghandi would say.

In any event, the State of California doesn’t have to aid the Federal Government in enforcing Federal “laws”.

Have You Seen Her? Police Looking for Woman Involved in NJ Fraud Scheme

NOTJJ 2014 09 06

Suspect allegedly stole license plates from cars in East Brunswick, cashed forged checks at various banks around New Jersey, police report.

Guess facial recognition software is NOT that good yet!

In one respect, that’s good for privacy.

In another, that’s bad for putting an end to this petty crime spree before others get hurt,

POLITICAL: Obama supporters posting on Facebook

WND EXCLUSIVE
DID OBAMA BREAK LAW TO WIN RE-ELECTION?
Former Homeland Security attorney exposes shrewd maneuver

*** begin quote ***

The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, enacted by Congress in 1986, is a broadly written law that in practice regulates virtually all computers and cellphones, largely because communications over the Internet tends to have implications for interstate commerce.

Baker argued that the Obama presidential campaign in 2012 possibly violated the act by an arrangement with Obama supporters posting on Facebook. It allowed the Obama campaign to search the person’s Facebook network for likely voters the campaign could identify as unmotivated or unregistered.

The likely voters would then get tailored messages from their Facebook friends urging them to register and turn out.

*** end quote ***

Might makes right.

BHO44 “won” the election. 

(A disputable claim given the fraudulent voting.)

So “his” DOJ isn’t going to investigate squat.

(After all, look at the “birth certificate” and how that was swept under the rug.)

Any claim that the USA is a land of “laws” is a joke.

And the politicians and bureaucrats have no shame at all. It’s now openly blatant that “lie, cheat, and steal” is acceptable to the Mundanes, Clovers, and Sheeple.

Wonder how Hitler, Mao, or any other the other fascists came to power? You’re watching it here.

MONEY: Insurance companies screw dead vets!

Fallen Soldiers’ Families Denied Cash as Insurers Profit
By David Evans – Jul 28, 2010 10:00 AM EST

*** begin quote ***

Lohman, a public health nurse who helps special-needs children, says she had always believed that her son’s life insurance funds were in a bank insured by the FDIC. That money — like $28 billion in 1 million death-benefit accounts managed by insurers — wasn’t actually sitting in a bank.

It was being held in Prudential’s general corporate account, earning investment income for the insurer. Prudential paid survivors like Lohman 1 percent interest in 2008 on their Alliance Accounts, while it earned a 4.8 percent return on its corporate funds, according to regulatory filings.

“I’m shocked,” says Lohman, breaking into tears as she learns how the Alliance Account works. “It’s a betrayal. It saddens me as an American that a company would stoop so low as to make a profit on the death of a soldier. Is there anything lower than that?”

*** end quote ***

This is outrageous.

While it may be important to protect the grieving families from blowing their money all at once, screwing them is unacceptable.

Where’s the VA, DOD, the politicians and bureaucrats?

Where’s the VFW and American Legion?

If I was KING, (and I’m not; nor do I want to be), I’d require that the insurance company open 100k$ FDIC insured accounts for the beneficiaries.

Fraud is force. Theft is theft. Stealing form widows and orphans is really low.

A plague on all their houses. The karmic wheel should roll their way. May their “lawn” be full of crabs.

What’s the one about wildebeests and elderberry?

Argh!

GA: Schoolteacher exchanges gunfire with carjackers
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

*** begin quote ***

“A DeKalb County schoolteacher carjacked early Sunday scored a measure of revenge against his attackers — thanks in part to their poor sense of direction. Derek Harper, 47, had just returned to his Lithonia home around 1:15 a.m. when two unidentified gunmen surprised him from behind, forcing the Evansdale Elementary teacher out of his car and onto the ground, demanding money. ‘After they figured out I didn’t have any cash on me they got into my van,’ he said. His narrow garage helped Harper sneak away. ‘One of them was having trouble getting into the passenger’s side, so while he was doing that I took off,’ said Harper, also the assistant track coach at Stephenson High. As he ran the gunmen started firing, striking Harper once in the arm before speeding off in his van, heading directly toward a dead end on Phillips Place. Knowing they’d be forced to turn around, Harper ran inside and grabbed his .380 pistol. ‘I was waiting for them,’ he said. Harper estimates he fired two to three bullets, which might have contributed to the driver crashing the van less than a block away.” (08/03/09)

380, a girllie gun. A 1911 45 would have been much more effective.

But better than nothing.

RANT: Pelosi seeks to divert attention!

Pelosi Wall Street Probe Follows Pecora After Crash (Update1)
By Mark Pittman and Laura Litvan

*** begin quote ***

April 21 (Bloomberg) — Wall Street may be heading for the deepest investigation of its practices since a congressional panel’s probe of abuses following the 1929 stock market crash.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to push for a comprehensive inquiry, saying that three-quarters of Americans want to know what led to the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and the collapse of Bear Stearns Cos. and Merrill Lynch & Co. She favors one patterned after Senate Banking Committee hearings led by Ferdinand Pecora starting in 1933, according to her spokesman, Nadeam Elshami.

*** end quote ***

And who investigates Congress?

Because, imho, “their fingerprints” are all over this mess — Dodd, Franks, Pelosi, and Reid!

Bush doesn’t escape clean, but they did block him.

The SEC, FTC, FDIC, and the Justice Department could have “blown the whistle”.

There’s enough blame to go around, but Pelosi is seeking to once again divert attention from her own troubles and that of her fellow congress critters.

Throw them all out!

GUNS: The good citizens are the police

Robber fatally shot in Miami Burger King holdup
A robbery at a Burger King in Miami’s Upper East Side neighborhood left one person dead and another seriously injured.
BY ROBERT SAMUELS

*** begin quote ***

An afternoon shootout at a busy Burger King restaurant in Miami left a potential robber dead and the customer who shot him seriously wounded.

The bloody event unfolded about 4 p.m. Tuesday at the restaurant at Northeast 54th Street and Biscayne Boulevard. It was a time, employees said, when it is usually crowded with schoolchildren and people getting out of work early.

The robber entered wearing a ski mask. He approached a clerk, showed his gun and demanded money, said Miami police spokesman Jeff Giordano.

A customer eyed him and the two started arguing. The customer had a concealed-weapons permit and his gun — and the two exchanged gunfire.

*** end quote ***

Guess the police weren’t there. (No slam on them. How could they possibly be everywhere?)

But “we” are the police. The armed citizen willing to step up to the robber.
