Fed. Court Ruling: Cops Can Kick In Your Door & Confiscate Guns Without Warrant or Charges

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals may have just dealt a serious blow to the U.S. Constitution.

In a unanimous decision earlier this month the Court determined that law enforcement officers are not required to present a warrant or charges before forcibly entering a person’s home, searching it, and confiscating their firearms if they believe it is in the individual’s best interests.

Open Letter to Obama: Instead of Fending Off Scandals, How About Looking Out After Our Veterans?

Mr. President:
I am writing this letter to you, not as a Republican, not as a Democrat, but as a Veteran of the United States Army. There are two subjects that I would like to talk about and it is my hope you will make the correct decision concerning both topics after reading this correspondence.

Jon Stainbrook effectively removed from Board of Elections

When the Secretary of State can no longer trust anyone, he has to appoint two judges to do the job of the Board of Elections.

====

Secretary of State Jon Husted notified the Lucas County Board of Elections (BOE) May 20 of the selection of two former judges to provide bipartisan oversight for the certification of the recent primary election.

Judge Peter Handwork and Judge Charles Wittenberg will work with the BOE on the certification of the May 6 primary and the Toledo City Council District 2 special election results.

Eric Holder: Opposers of Gun Control are Racist

If you oppose gun control, you aren’t fooling Attorney General Eric Holder one little bit. You are clearly a racist, and he knows it.

Attorney General Eric Holder, who has suggested that critics of the Obama administration are motivated by race and referred to America as a “nation of cowards“ on race issues while blasting Americans who resist more gun control laws, suggested that those opposed to President Barack Obama’s policy agenda of “fundamental transformation” are quietly prejudiced.

what's taking Jon Husted so long?

Is there anything more frustrating than government inertia? Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted has made it well-known that the Lucas County Board of Elections has taken up more of his time than all of the other counties combined. He's put together a special investigative committee and has asked for the resignations of election board members and employees (most of whom haven't complied)--and still there's no final resolution.

Interestingly, one of the members of Husted's special committee is the very person who refused to place Jon Stainbrook on the BOE back in early 2010--former Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner. Stainbrook's like a bad penny for her.

If you recall, there were two factions of the Republican Party in Lucas County in those days--the Stainbrook faction and the Jeffrey Simpson faction. As seems to be the norm, the Ohio Republican Party couldn't get its act together to decide which of these factions was "official." So each submitted a nominee for the Lucas County BOE and Brunner rejected them both and made her own appointment (Mr. Husted--hint, hint).

HERE ARE JUST 76 LAWLESS ACTS OBAMA HAS COMMITTED.

GOVERNING BY EXECUTIVE FIAT

1) Disregarded 1996 welfare reform law in granting broad work waivers for work requirements of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).

2. Implemented portions of the DREAM Act, which Congress rejected, by executive action

3. Ended some terror asylum restrictions, by allowing asylum for people who provided only “insignificant” or “limited” material support of terrorists.

4. Allowed immigrants in the U.S. illegally, who are relatives of military troops and veterans, to stay in the country and get legal status.

The More We Learn via Gowdy’s Benghazi Investigation – The Closer We are to Martial Law

The attack on the US Consultant in Benghazi, Libya on September 11,2012 which killed Ambassador J Christopher Stevens and US Foreign Service information Management Officer Sean Smith, 2 CIA operatives (confirmed by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton), and two Navy SEALs, SO1 Glen Doherty and SOCS Ty Woods was carried out by terrorist groups related to Al Qaeda.

The whole scenario of the Benghazi incident seems cut and dry to most Americans, our Consulate was attacked by terrorists, resulting in the deaths of 6 Americans. So why the lies and cover up from the Obama Administration?

Jon Stainbrook begs for job at Lucas County Board of Elections

The cancer is on the fence:

TOLEDO -- Four ousted members of the Lucas County Board of Elections are fighting for their jobs before state officials Thursday.

Last week, after a four-week investigation into "dysfunction" at the board of elections, a state transparency committee recommended to Secretary of State John Husted that board members Tony DeGidio, Ron Rothenbuhler, and Jon Stainbrook be replaced, along with Director Gina Kaczala and Deputy Director Dan DeAngelis

why should detroit bother having a public school system?

You have probably heard about the teacher who attempted to break-up a fight between two teenage boys in her Detroit high school classroom by hitting one of them with a broomstick (video appears later in this post). The teacher, Tiffani Eaton, was subsequently fired—but then reinstated.

I heard a lengthy interview with Eaton on WJR radio late this afternoon; and as it turns out, the fight was just the tip of the iceberg of incredible information surrounding this incident. So far the radio interviewer, Mitch Albom, has not posted a podcast of the interview; but here is a summary of what the teacher had to say:

1. The fight pursued due to an argument over a designer belt. Eaton didn’t know the specifics (i.e. was one student accusing the other of stealing the belt, etc.) other than what precipitated the argument was a belt.

2. During the commotion in the classroom, one of the other students took the opportunity to steal the teacher’s cell phone. Eaton said that some time later when things had settled down she discovered her cell phone was missing. The students and classroom were searched, but her cellphone was not found.

Don't let media confuse you re kidnapped girls

Two things for starters, before posting a "Front Page" article on Michelle's & Hillary's real agenda.

1) Christians worldwide are front & center highlighting the plight of these girls. For one thing, the criminals in the terrorist organization that took them are radical Islamists, who at last report have forced the girls to convert to Islam (or at least SAY they have converted, so they are not killed). The girls are all reported to be Christian.

Another way for TP to spend her time

Now just so you understand prunefart, I am not saying blacks and Hispanics are "less successful" Arne Duncan is saying it. So if it's racist it's coming from him. I am merely pointing out a way your internet time might be more productive. Perhaps you can give them your input on the need for black teachers, and how poorly same sex schools perform.

Jon Husted recommends removing Jon Stainbrook from board of elections

After voters picked Bill Delany over Jon Stainbrook, now the transparency committee recommends that Jon Stainbrook be fired. Looks like everyone is finally coming to senses that Jon is not very good at anything and is a cancer to any organization he associates himself with. It is nice that all of the bad things he has done is now coming back to haunt him.

=====

A transparency committee appointed by Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted recommended May 9 that three of the four Lucas County Board of Elections (BOE) members be fired along with the board’s director and deputy director.

So Now We Know Why FredtheEntertainer has cleared up his act!

SO FRED LEFEBVRE HAS CLEANED UP HIS RACIST ACT BECAUSE HE WILL PROFIT OFF OF THE BACKS OF BLACK CHILDREN. THE SAME BLACK CHILDREN THAT HIS RADIO STATION COMPARED TO MONKEYS.

From the Blade:
"Scott has both radio and TV studios in the school that are operated by students under the guidance of teacher Lisa Zilba. The school shares 88.3 FM with the University of Toledo, and run jazz programming for half the day. Students also record daily TV school updates that are broadcast internally throughout Scott.

Obama Admin Releases Photo of Obama Depicted as King

Last year, United States Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) criticized Obama for acting “like a king or monarch” as the administration threatened to bypass Congress on gun control. It seems as though the administration felt the title should stick.

UT BOARD RIVALS BOARD OF ELECTIONS FOR INCOMPETENCE

What is it with Toledo and members of local Boards? First we have the disaster that is the Lucas County Board of Elections--and as if not to be outdone by the dysfunction--the University of Toledo Board of Trustees is at the helm of a slowly sinking ship.

Actions overseen by UT President Lloyd Jacobs prompted representatives from the Ohio Attorney General's office to talk to the Trustees, which resulted in the Board pressuring Jacobs to step down, but not until June 2015! Perhaps the Board has some fascination with the macabre and just wanted to see how much more damage Jacobs could do with one more year.

Now UT Provost Scott Scarborough has been hired as Akron University's new president starting on July 1. Anybody with any sense could have predicted that Scarborough would get the job over Jim Tressel (whose hiring would have put the faculty in a tizzy) and the other candidate from Southeast Slippery Rock's branch campus is Punxsutawney (or something like that). Yet somehow the clueless UT Board didn't see the value in immediately axing Jacobs and appointing a stable interim to get the university through this onslaught of administrative lame ducks (the Chancelor left earlier this year). And that's just the tip of the iceberg of UT problems.

Sylvania Schools contradict an Ohio Attorney General opinion and the Ohio Revised Code with Web link

Update 5/9: Sylvania's own district policies prohibit linking to a levy Web site. See: http://www.neola.com/sylvania-oh/search/policies/po7540.02.htm

Under no circumstances is a web site to be used for commercial purposes advertising, political lobbying or to provide financial gains for any individual. Included in this prohibition is the fact no web pages contained on the District’s web site may: (1) include statements or other items that support or oppose a candidate for public office, the investigation, prosecution or recall of a public official, or passage of a tax levy or bond issue; (2) link to a web site of another organization if the other web site includes such a message; or (3) communicate information that supports or opposes any labor organization or any action by, on behalf of, or against any labor organization.

Update 5/2: Sylvania Schools Superintendent Dr. Brad Reiger sent the following: No, we do not encourage district email accts be used for levy recruitment. We clarified with our Admin Team & staff members that personal email accts are to used. Also, you are correct that the levy website shouldn't be linked to the district website. Thank you for pointing this out. We have removed the levy website link. We'll do better with this moving forward.

5/1/2014 - original story:
2 days ago I wrote about the Sylvania School employees organizing pro-levy campaign volunteers using school resources which clearly violates the Ohio Revised code. Today, I will move a step higher and tell how the Sylvania Schools are violating an Ohio Attorney General opinion and the Ohio Revised Code by including a link to the pro levy site campaign site on the district Web site.

Election Results and General Brouhaha - May, 2014

But mainly general brouhaha. Here's the latest, courtesy of the local bird cage liner:
From The Blade:Primary Election Results Delayed in Lucas County

The primary election results were delayed well past midnight today partially because of the missing cards, but Elections Director Gina Kaczala said "we have other problems."

Yeah, they've got problems alright. Here's the source of the problems.
