Global warming-inspired cap and trade has been one of the most stridently debated public policy controversies of the past 15 years. But it is dying a quiet death. In a little reported move, the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) announced on Oct. 21 that it will be ending carbon trading — the only purpose for which it was founded — this year.
Although the trading in carbon emissions credits was voluntary, the CCX was intended to be the hub of the mandatory carbon trading established by a cap-and-trade law, like the Waxman-Markey scheme passed by the House in June 2009.

A college professor who worked as a senior elections clerk for the city and county of Honolulu in 2008 is making the stunning claim Barack Obama was definitely not born in Hawaii as the White House maintains, and that a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Obama does not even exist in the Aloha State.
Tim Adams, a former senior elections clerk for Honolulu, now teaches English at Western Kentucky University.
"There is no birth certificate," said Tim Adams, a graduate assistant who teaches English at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Ky. "It's like an open secret. There isn't one. Everyone in the government there knows this."

Race a factor in school fight
A fight Wednesday at Greeley West High School was precipitated by verbal taunting, which included references of ethnicity, said Roger Fiedler, spokesman for Greeley-Evans District 6 .
The fight, which occurred in the school's commons area during lunchtime, involved five students. Minor injuries — including scratches, a split lip and contusions — were reported.
Fiedler said Thursday that witnesses to the fight said the verbal portion of the altercation included references to Cinco de Mayo, which was Wednesday.
“The school has already followed up on disciplinary consequences for those involved,” Fiedler said.
Though Fiedler said he couldn't comment specifically on the punishment handed out to the students involved in the fight, he said the student handbook states that fighting can result in a range of consequences based on its severity and a student's prior behavior. Discipline ranges from in-school counseling to a maximum five-day suspension.
Information on the fight has been forwarded to the Weld District Attorney's office for consideration of charges.
A woman called the Peter Boyle's show on May 6th. She related the events described in the Greeley Tribune article. While ORF has no way of knowing is this woman was telling the truth, this is another version of what she says happened at the high school.
Her son displayed an American Flag in the rear window of his pickup truck, which was parked in the school parking lot.
The truck was broken into and the Flag was removed.
Other students wore clothing depicting an American Flag theme.
Students celebrating Cinco de Mayo wore clothing depicting the Mexican Flag.
Students wearing Mexican Flag clothing complained to school administration that the students wearing American Flag clothing disrespected Cino de Mayo.
A student wearing American Flag clothing was verbally attacked and then assaulted by several students wearing Mexican Flag clothing. Other students joined in the fight.
A group of students celebrating Cino de Mayo roamed the school chanting 'F' Whitey' &
While ORF cannot determine the truth of the woman's statements, she claimed to be the mother of the student whose truck was broken into and related the story to the Boyle's show, from her son's first hand account.

Thanks to Lou for forwarding this email to ORF.
Forwarded to me by a friend who recently retired from border patrol in Douglas........My parents were real good friends of Bob Krentz parents and I knew Bob when we were kids and I lived across the border from Douglas in Agua Prieta. Their ranch was just on the other side from the ranch owned by a doctor that was a partner of my Dad's. Such a shame, real nice fellow.
As you know, one of the local ranchers was murdered in Douglas two weeks ago. His funeral is
tomorrow. I received three messages similar to the one below from different officers within the
Rangers and law enforcement.
Yesterday afternoon I talked to another rancher near us who is a friend of ours and whose great
grandfather started their ranch here in 1880. These are good people.
He told me what really happened out at the Krentz ranch and what you won't read in the papers.
The Border Patrol is afraid of starting a small war between civilians here and the drug cartels in
Bob Krentz was checking his water like he does every evening and came upon an illegal who was
lying on the ground telling him he was sick. Bob called the Border Patrol and asked for a medical
helicopter evac. As he turned to go back to his ATV he was shot in the side. The round came from
down and angled up so they know the shooter was on the ground. Bob's firearm was in the ATV so he
had no chance.
Wounded he called the Cochise County Sherriff and asked for help. Bleeding in the lungs he called
his brother but the line was bad so he called his wife but again the line was bad. Several
ranchers heard the radio call and drove to his location. Bob was dead by this time. The ranchers
tracked the shooter 8 miles back towards Mexico and cornered him in a brushy draw. This was all
at night. The Sherriff and Border Patrol arrived and told them not to go down and engage the
murderer. They went around to the back side and if you can believe it the assassin managed to get
by a BP helicopter and a Sherriff's posse and back to Mexico . So much for professional help when
you need it.
One week before the murder Bob and his brother Phil (who I shoot with) hauled a huge quantity of
drugs off the ranch that they found in trucks.
One week before that a rancher near Naco did the same thing. Two nights later gangs broke into his
ranch house and beat him and his wife and told them that if they touched any drugs they found they
would come back and kill them. The ranchers here deal with cut fences and haul drug deliveries
off their ranches all the time. What ranchers think is that the drug cartels beat the one rancher
and shot Bob because they wanted to send a message. Bob always gave food and water to illegals
and so they think they sent the assassin to pose as an illegal who was hungry and thirsty knowing
it would catch Bob off guard.
What is going on down here is NOT being reported. You need to tell people how bad it is along the
border. Texas is worse. Near El Paso it's in a state of war. 5000 people were killed in Ciudad
Juarez last year and it's over 2000 so far this year. Gun sales down here are through the roof
and I get emails from people wanting firearms training.
Something has to be done but I don't hold out much hope. These gangs have groups in almost every
city in the US . This is serious business. The Barrio Azteca and their sub
gangs are like Mexican Corporations and organized extremely well. If this doesn't get dealt with
down here you guys will deal with it on your streets. Bud

Once the news of Arizona’s ‘proof of legal documentation to be in Arizona’ became public, an array of new disorder maladies became readily apparent. These new disorder maladies have been recognized and listed by the Otero Residents Forum crack staff of therapeutic analysts.
First on the list: COMPREHENSION DEFICIENCY DISORDER (CDD).
CDD may be the reason persons opposed to the Arizona law can’t comprehend what the law actual says; if they even read it at all.
Next on the list: INABILITY TO TELL THE TRUTH DISORDER (4 Ts Disorder).
4 Ts disorder is common in political public speech and debate.
Next: POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY AT THE EXPENSE OF OTHERS DISORDER (PEATTEOO)
PEATTEOO seems to almost be a viral disorder. Symptoms are usually evident once an individual announces their intention to run for a political office.
Next: IF DEHUMANIZATION CONTRIBUTES TO MY POLITICAL AGENDA THEN I’M ALL FOR IT DISORDER
Commonly exhibited by those who would, for example, rally and campaign for fabricated rights of illegal aliens and advancing their ‘right to be here’ in an effort to create a Democrat future voting constituency, while ignoring the northern trek from Mexico, wrought with kidnapping, intimidation, robbery, rape and murder. Individuals who suffer from IDCTMPATIAFI disorder usually have no moral compass or compassion for those other individuals they exploit.

Reid: Senate to act on climate before immigration
04-27-2010 • AP
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday he is willing to bring up climate change legislation ahead of an immigration bill, a possible first step toward resolving a dispute with Senate Republicans that threatens to derail a bipartisan effort months in the making.
But Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, still angry that Reid considered putting off the climate bill, said nothing has changed. The majority leader appears not to be serious about either the climate bill or the immigration measure, said Graham. He has threatened to withhold support for the climate bill if Reid pushes ahead first on immigration.

Title click to read article, 'Fannie Mae owns patent on residential 'cap and trade' exchange' on Freedom's Phoenix webiste.
04-27-2010 • washingtonexaminer.com/opinion
The patent, which Fannie Mae confirmed it still owns with Cantor Fitzgerald subsidiary CO2e.com, gives the mortgage giant a lock on the fledgling carbon trading market, thus also giving it a major financial stake in the success of cap-and-trade legislation. Besides Raines, the other "inventors" are: * Former Fannie Vice President and Deputy General Counsel G. Scott Lesmes, who provided legal advice on Fannie Mae's debt and equity offerings; * Former Fannie Vice President Robert Sahadi, who now runs GreenSpace Investment Financial Services out of his 5,002-square-foot Clarksburg home; * 2008 Barack Obama fundraiser Kenneth Berlin, an environmental law partner at Skadden Arps; * Michelle Desiderio, director of the National Green Building Certification program, which trains "green" monitors; * Former Cantor Fitzgerald employee Elizabeth Arner Cavey, wife of Democratic donor Brian Cavey of the Stanton Park Group, which received $200,000 last year to lobby on climate change legislation; and * Jane Bartels, widow of former CO2e.com CEO Carlton Bartels. Three weeks before Carlton Bartels was killed in the Sept. 11 attacks, he filed for another patent on the software used in 2003 to set up the Chicago Climate Exchange. The patent, which covers both the "cap" and "trade" parts of Obama's top domestic energy initiation, gives Fannie Mae proprietary control over an automated trading system that pools and sells credits for hard-to-quantify residential carbon reduction efforts (such as solar panels and high-efficiency appliances) to companies and utilities that don't meet emission reduction targets.

CAP & TRADE HR 2454: YOU WILL LICENSE YOUR ENERGY EFFICIENT HOME
If HR 2454 (Cap & Trade) passes, you will have comply with fed regs and replace all electric and gasoline motors in your house with new energy efficient products. Plus you are ORDERED to have your your inspected by the fedgov if you want to sell your home.
...and WHERE will these new energy efficient products be manufactured? China? Mexico? How about General Electric?
In a May 2009 letter to Henry Waxman, G.E. CEO Jeff Immelt urges the passage of HR 2454. G.E. is just one of several corporations waiting in the wings to get in on the monopoly of selling 'energy efficient' products to the mandate created market the American public will be ORDERED to buy from.
This will impact middle Americans, who make too much to qualify for a fedgov subsidy, but who will pay higher taxes (redistribution of wealth scheme) to pay for energy subsidies for poor people. Problem with subsidies for the poor...the majority of poor in America don't own their homes. The landlord can either comply or simply cease renting the property and let it sit vacant or tear it down.
The elite and self-indulgent 'green' crowds will bask in the glow of a 'cleaner' world as Cap and Trade relies heavily on the science of anthropogenic global warming. AGW is a HOAX! The 'Brave New World' is here. It's greener and it stinks more than the 'Old World'.

The American main stream media is not carrying this story.
The news from the British Institute of Astrophysics warns that the current position of the planet Jupiter will cause the Van Allen magnetic belts surrounding the Earth to 'wave fluctuate' causing a 'wave length generation depletion' of Earth's gravity. Essentially, what this means is a lose of 30%-50% of Earth's gravity. Archeologists suggest this happened once before during the Jurassic period in Earth's history. What this means for present day civilization is disaster. The obvious impact on several levels are cited in a report (that has been purposely repressed by the United Nations and the federal government of the United States). The lose of gravity is expected to occur, starting May 17 and last approximately 72 days. This is what will happen:
1) Air travel will cease, as airplanes would be jettisoned into the stratosphere and beyond.
2) All utilities based on turbine generated power would become useless as turbines depend on gravity to accomplish cyclic power generation.
3)Water contained in oceans, seas,lakes and rivers would become what is referred to as 'poly-water', rising into the atmosphere, creating 'poly-oxygen- or a thick soup of air heavily contaminated with water molecules too thick for air breathing species to breath.
4) Any mobile object to include humans, animals, vehicles, winds, etc. would gradually float beyond the gravitational pull of the planet and be drawn into the infinity of space. This includes radio and TV signals and the internet, which will all be useless as any mega-hertz or electrically generated signal will be siphoned into the Van Allen belts.
5)World governments will try to repress mass panic by reassuring their populations that there is nothing to fear while attempting to save a select few for re-population of the planet.
6) After the 72 days of gravitational loss, the planet will be void of most species, including mankind.
7) Those fortunate few who do survive face a rebuilding time frame of maybe...1200 years to get back to where the 'world ended' in 2010.
Why hasn't the government or any other international organization issued warnings or attempted any kind of precautionary measures to save human lives?

Catastrophic global warming, Anthropogenic global warming - the latest victims are our flowers. This article is unbelievable. Now we are to accept genetically modified flowers because global warming is killing their fragrance:
Flowers losing scent due to climate change
Mon, Mar 22, 2010
New Straits Times
KUALA LUMPUR: A rose may stop smelling like a rose.
This is the concern of environmentalists as flowers are losing their scent due to climate change and air pollution. And their fragrance may be lost forever.
Science and Technology Professor Emeritus at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Dr Abdul Latif Mohamad, said genetically modified flowers might be the way out.
Climate change is also the reason Kuala Lumpur City Hall is increasingly turning to shady trees, because flowers which previously formed the centrepiece of its beautification programme have been wilting fast.
Datuk Bandar Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ismail said City Hall used to spend RM1.5 million ($635,100) a month to plant and maintain flowers in the city, but the contractor's services were terminated in March last year.
City Hall has taken over the planting, opting for bou-gainvillea and the tropical shrubs, Ixora, for their durability and cheaper cost.
Under the previous arrangement, some of the small flowers cost RM3.50 per seedling.
"It was getting too costly to beautify the city. Flowers were dying fast," he said, adding that City Hall would continue to plant shady trees more suited for soaking up the increasing pollution and coping with global warming.
Latif said UKM might have offered plausible reasons as to why some pollinators were not spreading flower seeds, a pattern caused by the missing "scent trail" with scent tissues burning easily due to global warming.
"The aroma producing chemical compounds in flowers dry up faster now compared with before."
The only way out, he said, was to genetically modify the flowers so that the effects would not be permanent and the future generation would not be robbed of nature's beauty.
"The act is almost like producing essential oils. Scientists add on certain chemicals for stronger scent."
He said scents in flowers last longer in colder climate as plants can hold on to their essential oils longer.
"The flowers may still have strong scents in colder climate. But locally, we fear this might be lost forever."
With flowers emitting lesser scent, the insects and butterflies are travelling further and longer to get a share of nectar.
Latif said birds and insects were heading towards hilly areas and deeper into the jungles where the weather is cooler.
He related an incident in Sungai Siput, Perak, where the farmers failed to get fruits from their orchards.
Upon investigation, Latif's team discovered that the flowers were no longer pollinating after dust from a hill blast blocked the growth of stigmas.
He said Malaysians could no longer rely on nature to heal itself without the help of science.
He said Malaysia needed to follow in the footsteps of Japan, Europe, the United States, China and South Korea which have invested millions in the research of genetically modified seeds.
Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) director-general Datuk Dr Abdul Latif Mahmod said recently the extreme weather change might affect the life span of trees as a result of lighter or heavier rain.
"We should look at how trees can be mutated so that they will not be destroyed."
He said experts, including from FRIM, should look at ways to prolong the lifespan of certain plants.
Meanwhile, Natural Resources and Environment Deputy Minister Tan Sri Joseph Kurup said given the extreme climate changes, every country should work together and not in isolation.
He said the decline in global biodiversity and ecosystem services urgently called for proactive measures.
"Both policy-makers and researchers need to work hand in hand to strengthen forest genetics, breeding and conservation."
Contact New Mexico Attorney General Gary King and urge him to join other states poised to protect their state's sovereignty and citizens' rights.
Here is what other states' attorneys are doing. We deserve no less.
Health Care: Cue Up the Legal Fights
Florida says several states to file healthcare lawsuit
Mon Mar 22, 2010 11:01am EDT
MIAMI, March 22 (Reuters) - Florida's attorney general will file a lawsuit with nine other state attorneys general opposing the healthcare legislation passed by Congress, a spokeswoman said on Monday.
"The health care reform legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives last night clearly violates the U.S. Constitution and infringes on each state's sovereignty," Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum, a Republican, said in a prepared statement announcing a news conference.
"On behalf of the State of Florida and of the Attorneys General from South Carolina, Nebraska, Texas, Utah, Pennsylvania, Washington, North Dakota, South Dakota and Alabama if the President signs this bill into law, we will file a lawsuit to protect the rights and the interests of American citizens."

UPDATE 1-Virginia to sue U.S. over healthcare reform
Mon Mar 22, 2010 10:22am EDT
* Virginia to file lawsuit after Obama signs bill into law
* AG: Congress lacks power to force insurance purchases
NEW YORK, March 22 (Reuters) - Virginia's attorney general said he plans to sue the federal government over the healthcare reform legislation, saying Congress lacks authority to force people to buy health insurance.
Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli, a Republican, said on Monday that Congress lacks authority under its constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce to force people to buy insurance. He said the bill also conflicts with a state law that says Virginians cannot be required to buy insurance.
"If a person decides not to buy health insurance, that person by definition is not engaging in commerce," Cuccinelli said in recorded comments. "If you are not engaging in commerce, how can the federal government regulate you?"
Cuccinelli said he plans to file his lawsuit in federal court in Richmond, Virginia, after President Barack Obama signs the bill into law, which he is expected to do.

Green Global Dictatorship: Regional Governance, UN Agenda 21, Sustainable Development, and the Wildlands Project Dr. Eric T. Karlstrom, Professor of
Here's how it works. Dr. Karlstrom has done an excellent job explaining how the UNITED NATIONS & NGOs work together to incrementally diminish U.S. sovereignty and have us all living under U.N. global dominance. Title click to read entire article on WATER WATCH ALLIANCE.
From Dr. Karlstrom's excellent article:
In “The Greening of America Part 1- How Did It Happen?” (http://discerningtoday.org/greening_of_america1.htm), Dr. Michael Coffman (Ph.D. forester), notes that the “Greening of America” with its attendant conversion to Regional Governance, U.N. Agenda 21 (Agenda for the 21st Century), and Sustainable Development, began with the creation of the United Nations in 1945. In 1946, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) was formed as the primary scientific adviser to the UN on environmental issues. It was founded by Julien Huxley, who was also a founder of UNESCO- United Nations Education, Scientfic and Cultural Organization. Members of the IUCN today include over 880 governmental agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) in 133 countries. In the U.S., IUCN members include the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. National Park Service, and U.S. Forest Service. Other IUCN members are the U.N. Environmental Program (UNEP), the UN Development Program (UNDP), UNESCO, as well as a host of NGOs, including the Sierra Club, The Nature Conservancy (TNC), National Wildlife Federation, National Audubon Society, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), and the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). Two other major international environmental organizations were later created to also serve as advisers to the UN: the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) and the World Resources Institute (WRI). Figure 1 (below) illustrates how federal agencies today cooperate with environmental groups to implement strategies devised by the United Nations in concert with the IUCN, WWF, and WRI. Coffman notes that almost every strategy implemented during the past 30 years (1978 to 2008) has originated with this “unholy alliance.”

"Al Gore is by far the most visible beneficiary of the global warming ponzi scheme. As a climate-change fear-monger, Gore has banked millions in book sales, speaking fees and DVD royalties. His pseudoscience flick, “An Inconvenient Truth,” won an Academy Award for best documentary, not to mention 21 other film awards. He was also the co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his “efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change.” Note that word, “efforts”. It seems that liberals can get awards for simply trying, not achieving."

Link to google document containing information on the global warming scam.
Anthropogenic global warming has been exposed as a fraud. Don't mince words on this international scam. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has admitted it skewed the data. Scientists who once advocated for global warming have flipped and admitted the whole scam was for political power and huge payouts. The fraud and lie of global warming is being taught in our schools. Heavy-handed environmental regulations, conceived by the IPCC and adopted by its demented cousin, the EPA, have impacted Otero County...negatively! Get behind this proposed ordinance and show the Otero County Commissioners the Citizens of Otero County want the Anthropogenic Global Warming ordinance passed!

Shelter for school children built at school bus stop on rural road in Cantron County.
Shelter was built after wolves were observed stalking children walking on rural roads.
Title click to read article in the DENVER POST.
Some quotes from the article:
"Wolf advocates say wolves will improve the state's ecological balance and even its economy: Visitors flock to Yellowstone National Park to try to spot the animals."
"That fear of wolves is most apparent in one southern New Mexico county where local officials have built cages at bus stops for children to wait in if wolves are spotted in the area.
But Wendy Keefover-Ring with WildEarth Guardian said those type of reactions are an example of over-the-top, anti-wolf factions trying to make wolves look bad."
"WildEarth is urging Coloradans to "celebrate their (the wolves') return to their ancestral homeland."
"Let's bring out the welcome mat," reads a form letter the group is urging wolf advocates to send to Gov. Bill Ritter."

I didn't take an actual count at the meeting at Peppers but since each table holds 8 and there were at least 8 tables filled, 64 +/- would seem reasonable.
Don Omey read the Las Cruces Tea Party mission statement:
"The Las Cruces TEA Party is a non-partisan group dedicated to promoting the United States of America's Constitutional values of limited government, fiscal responsibility and restraint, as well as individual freedoms and liberties guaranteed to the citizens of the United States by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We are committed to promote active participation in the development of government policy in order to limit the tyranny that results from unrestrained legislation, especially that of taxation.
The Las Cruces TEA Party provides information, promotes self-education, involvement of the public at all levels, and provides a forum where ordinary American citizens have a chance to be heard. The LTCP intends to strengthen values and principles as set forth by the original framers of the Constitution of the United States."
You can sign up to be a member at this link.
Then Congressman Pearce gave brief remarks, he had a meeting scheduled with the Chamber of Commerce at 6:00 pm, and started taking questions and giving answers.
Although there were attendees who frequent Tea Party meetings and rallies, a number present were Republicans who do not attend TP meetings. Even a couple of Democrats were there. Alamogordo Second Amendment Task Force had several members present. Candidates present: Janet White, Benny House, John Lee, Yvette and Tommy Herrell.
After a number of questions had been asked and replies given by Congressman Pearce, Dan, A2ATF, asked Pearce where in the U.S.Constitution could the word "democracy" be found. Dan then answered the question himself by saying that nowhere in the Constitution will you find the word democracy because we are a republic. Congressman Pearce replied he knew the difference between democracy and republic and knows we are a republic but it was just shorthand, I think is the term he used (someone please correct me with the actual language), because that is what most people use today. It was hard to understand the Congressman's response because he was talking rapidly and walking towards the other end of the room.
Now, as far as I know Alamogordo Tea Party does not have a mission statement but if it did it would probably be similar to Las Cruces' statement which supports our U.S.Constitution which is the framework for our Representative Republic.
In the early morning hours of February 27th, two men died in the crash of a stolen pickup, in north Denver. Police and the Colorado State Patrol fired on the men in the vehicle when the stolen truck attempted to ram police and State Patrol officers at a road block. The vehicle came to a stop after crashing into Denver’s landmark nursery, Paulino Gardens. A third man in the truck was taken into custody. The names of the three men suggested they were all from Mexico or another country. The legal status of the three men, in regards to their immigration or citizenship status, is not presently known.
The following is an ORF parody. This ‘parody’ was originally posted in the comment section of an article about the incident in the Denver Post. The comment, in its entirety, was removed from the comment thread of the article. The parody has been modified slightly since the removal from the Denver Post’s online comment feature.
Here is the parody.
“This incident is clearly in violation of the U.N. Treaty on Police Pursuits of Discontented Individuals. The treaty mandates that Police use vehicles weighing no more than 453.59237 kilograms (1000 pounds) and not capable of exceeding 72.420 479 999 kilometer/hour (45 mile/hour (mph) .
The Convention prohibits the use of deadly force by the Police; requiring them to hold up placards written in 27 different languages that read, “Please stop eluding the police and return the vehicle. The Convention goes on to require Police to route the pursuit away from areas occupied by ‘hard structures’ to areas less inhabited if a ‘soft-impact crash’ is necessitated.
Paulino Garden’s may be in violation of the treaty’s building codes. Paulino Garden’s structures are not within U.N. guidelines defining ‘hard structures that may pose a threat to discontented individuals general welfare and safety, who are being pursued by Police’. The nursery may also be in violation of carbon emissions and green building code guidelines determined in other U.N. conventions in force in the United States..
The treaty states in lieu of Police responding to an incident involving a ’discontented individual’, a ’cultural counselor’ is to be called to attempt to locate the discontented individual to determine if the incident (crime) is an expression of cultural pride, economic need, or emergency re-distribution of wealth.
The Police violated the discontented individual’s 4th Amendment Rights to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and acquired things against unreasonable searches and seizures. The Convention requires Police to seek the consultation of a board of the discontented peers before initiating a pursuit or search and seizure of a discontented individual’s acquired possessions. The board will determine if the discontented individual is engaging in a crime or a misunderstood expression of cultural tradition. Police clearly disregarded this procedure.
The owner of the acquired vehicle (stolen truck) could be fined for ownership of a greenhouse emitting, carbon producing vehicle in violation of U.N. guidelines and which tempts discontented individuals and could cause a cultural incident (crime) of misunderstanding. Green counseling, in 27 different languages, is available to the owner of the acquired vehicle (stolen truck), to direct the owner in green vehicle replacement and cultural loss prevention.
The Police should be investigated for leaving carbon footprints on the Smartgrid.
Let’s hope this incident didn’t add to duress of young people who are already suffering from obesity.
My parody (this is a parody) may appear unsympathetic for the victims of this incident, but aren’t WE, the Citizens of the United States the real victims?
Thank the Higher Power of your choosing, as defined by the U.N. Convention on Global Higher Powers, that no Police were injured.”

Title click to read article on LOUISVILLE COURIER-JOURNAL website. (Apparently this guy wrote the poem in 2007. The poem was posted on a neo-Nazi website.)
From the article:
“This is a threat by one individual against another because he is the president and because he is black,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Philip Chance.
Whalin said after Friday’s hearing that he will decide next week whether there is a probable cause that Spencer, 27, committed a crime. Threatening to kill the president is a felony punishable by a maximum five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
From the article:
In 1969, the court reversed the conviction of a young African-American man who said at an anti-draft rally that if “they ever make me carry a rifle, the first man I want to get in my sights is LBJ,” referring to President Lyndon Johnson.
* Remember the DVD 'DEATH OF A PRESIDENT'?
The following is from AMAZON.COM, where the DVD is for sale:
Winner of the International Critics' Award at the Toronto Film Festival, DEATH OF A PRESIDENT is conceived as a fictional TV documentary broadcast in 2008, reflecting on a monstrous and cataclysmic event: the assassination of President George W. Bush on October 19th, 2007. The "documentary" artfully combines archival footage and carefully composed interviews presented in a respectful and dignified manner. The film doesn't advocate violence; rather, it shows its pernicious effects. It is exciting and questioning, and it offers viewers a riveting story -- creating a provocative political thriller that reveals larger truths.
* This DVD and the portrayal of the assassination of a sitting President was protected under free speech. ORF in no way agrees with anything a neo-Nazi scum bucket says, but ORF believes free speech should be protected. The neo-Nazi is an obvious racist. ORF asks what's the difference between the DVD and the scum-bucket's poem? The lawyers will explain that riveting question.

Otero Residents Forum says:
I'll get right to the point. You all know the dynamics of the State of the Nation today. I'll focus on one glaring point. The border with the United States and Mexico has never been secured. The media downplays the invasion of illegal trespassers into our Nation. Colorado has legalized medical marijuana use by its Citizens. Other states have already legalized pot for medical use. The legalization of medical marijuana in the United States will lessen the demand for illegally smuggled marijuana into the United States from Mexico. Medical marijuana will be grown in the United States by licensed growers. This will create a void now filled by the Mexican drug cartels. The drug king-pins in Mexico will adapt their criminal enterprise to compensate for drug monies lost in the United States. There's a real possibility that the flood of Mexican 'super meth', illegally smuggled into the U.S., will increase substantially.
Our elected officials in Santa Fe are going to vote on S.1689 in the near future. They will be voting on legislation that would create a wilderness area on the U.S./Mexican border in Dona Ana County, New Mexico. Senators Jeff Bingaman, Tom Udall and Harry Teague want to designate 259,000 acres as wilderness and another 100,850 acres as a national conservation area. These designations come with the heavy handed regulations from federal agencies that severely restrict county and public use and control of these areas. Add to this designation of wilderness the failure of state and federal governments to close the U.S./Mexican border. This wilderness designation will create an attractive, unsecured, unmonitored gateway for drug smuggling into the United States.
The drafters of this legislation and environmental groups have NO concern for the Citizens of Dona Ana County who live in the region of this proposed wilderness designation. Citizens in Dona Ana County and the contiguous counties will be forced to endure with and protect themselves from illegal trespassers and the possibility of a flood of illegal drug smuggling through the wilderness area. The Mexican drug cartels are at war in Juarez, MX., right across the river from El Paso. The creation of a massive wilderness area on the border, so close to Juarez, threatens to invite the drug smugglers and their violent turf war into Dona Ana County. Now is the worst time to add a large region of land to our nation's already unsecured and open border between the United States and Mexico.
Do these elected officials really want to destroy our nation's sovereignty and put the lives of U.S. Citizens at risk? The answer is YES. They seek political expediency at the expense of the Citizens of Dona Ana County. This is the State of our Nation today.

I am sending this out because I am deeply concerned about the designation of a Wilderness Area in Dona Ana County, our neighboring county, which borders on Mexico in very close proximity of Juarez which has the highest homicide rate of ANY CITY IN THE WORLD.
We have until 3:00 pm on Friday, 2/19, to let the Energy and Natural Resources Committee know what we think about a Wilderness Area in Dona Ana County. You can click on the original alert below and read some testimony to the committee.
There are many reasons to object to this land grab by Washington; national security, private property issues, local economics, increased control by DC enabled by our tax dollars, the high probability that the "science" used to justify this Wilderness Area is tainted/skewed - not unlike Global Warming.
I am providing a link to view current Wilderness Areas: http://www.wilderness.net/index.cfm?fuse=NWPS Please open this and type NM to view New Mexico Wilderness areas. It will astound you. Guaranteed.
Here is what you need to do now. Contact Bingaman, Udall, Teague. Direct links are below in the original message. If you have already done this, do it again. Then call or fax the Energy and Natural Resources Committee. This may take a few tries as there is only one number and one person answering the phone. Be persistent and polite.

STAND UP TO PRESERVE OUR ACCESS TO PUBLIC LANDS
Comment Deadline – THIS FRIDAY, Feb 19
The field hearing for S 1689 was held in Las Cruces yesterday. A hearty “thank you” to everyone who attended to express their concerns about the numerous impacts of this wilderness legislation.
There was clear agreement on protection of these lands from sale and development from all who testified. The main point of contention is what legislative tool is used to establish this protection. It was clear from the testimony that there are many concerns about establishing federal Wilderness protection, which is the most restrictive land use designation available. Many compelling issues were raised, but flood control, border security, and public access stand out as very serious concerns.
For more information on the testimony and some excerpts, click here.
This legislation is NOT in the best interests of Dona Ana County residents.
There is still a small window of opportunity to have your input heard. Comments will be accepted until this FRIDAY, Feb 25.

Mistrial declared in Alamogordo bar stabbing
Associated Press - February 11, 2010 12:45 PM ET
ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) - A judge has declared a mistrial in the case of a registered nurse who is accused of battery with a deadly weapon in an Alamogordo bar stabbing.
State District Judge James Counts says prosecutors should have shared a DVD recording from a police patrol unit with attorneys for defendant James King, who is accused of stabbing Javier Pacheco three times at the Palm Side Lounge on Jan. 24, 2008.
Pacheco's spinal cord was severed and he now uses a wheelchair.
A state District Court jury hung on five charges in the first trial but convicted King of resisting, evading or obstructing an officer and two traffic offenses.
The DVD, which recorded King's arrest, was delivered by Alamogordo police to the District Attorney's Office but it apparently was misplaced after the first trial.

They were outspoken Northeastern liberals whose political yard signs stood out a little on their suburban lot facing a cul-de-sac called Scarlett O'Hara Circle.
Some neighbors found them to be friendly. Others clashed with them. Armstrong said that Bishop passed around a petition to get another neighbor's dogs to quiet down. Armstrong signed the petition; he said Bishop and the dogs' owner eventually ended up in court."
