Concentration Camps

It has long been said that wealthy, elitist Democrats don’t care about illegal immigration because they don’t have illegal immigrants in their neighborhoods. Ron Desantis has proven that old saying to be correct by shipping some illegals to Martha’s Vineyard.

FDR put inconvenient non-whites into military guarded camps. Now the left has found another group of non-white people to put into camps. Less than 36 hours after arriving in Martha’s Vineyard, which declared itself to be a sanctuary location, the immigrants that arrived there were shipped off to a concentration camp to be guarded by 125 National Guard troops activated for that express purpose.

It isn’t that liberals don’t understand hypocrisy or cognitive dissonance, as Miguel argues. They fully understand it. The leftists have simply decided that they don’t have to follow the rules that they have set for others.

In the meantime, everyone on the left who supports this needs to be called a racist who supports putting Hispanics into concentration camps.

See? They Can Find You, if they want to

In a follow up to a post from three days ago, it turns out that the cops CAN use plate trackers to find criminals. Or anyone else, if they really want to.

They Know Where You Are

USA today recently discovered that Florida police are tracking people through plate readers and toll transponders. This isn’t new. Police have been doing this for years. I first reported on this way back in 2011, when I did a post on plate reading cameras.

There are also readers that track toll transponders without charging the driver a toll. They are everywhere. Then there are people tracking your cell phone. Ask the J6 protesters about that.

That’s the reason why every vehicle I own as a Faraday bag in it. If I ever want to be more difficult to track, I just drop the cell phones and transponders into the bag.

Of course, USA today didn’t care then, and they didn’t care when I showed that NYPD was doing it back in 2014. The only reason that they care now is because they want to make DeSantis look bad. They just fail to mention that the program has been going in for far longer than DeSantis has been in office, and it taking place in more places than just Florida.

Cops Stealing PMs

This man sued PA cops because they took his silver coins and bullion. Note that the suit wasn’t dropped because it didn’t have merit. It was dropped because the man just couldn’t do it any longer.

I have a problem with how it all went down:

Because of Schifter’s rambling and vague answers plus a record showing arrests in three states, Conrad sought permission to search the RV.

It was denied due to six dogs in the RV. Asked if he would allow a search were it not for the dogs, he said no.

So no probable cause, they asked to search and were denied. So far, I don’t have a problem.

A search was conducted after Conrad’s drug detection dog had an alert at the front and passenger side of the RV. That is when the cash, bullion, coins and jewelry were discovered.

The entire thing of drug dogs alerting is bullshit. It is long past time for drug dogs to be eliminated as probable cause.

Dogs are very good at reading people. They know that if they give their handler what he wants, they get a reward. If the cop wants the dog to alert on a car, the dog will alert on a car. There was one study that actually supported that, but once the study was published, cops have refused to participate in any more studies unless those studies are being performed by pro-policing organizations.

Cops don’t even keep records of how often dogs alert to drugs and then no drugs are found. The police say:

“There’s been cars that my dog’s hit on… and just because there wasn’t a product in it, doesn’t mean the dog can’t smell it,” says Gunnar Fulmer, a K9 officer with the Walla Walla Police Department. “[The drug odor] gets permeated in clothing, it gets permeated in the headliners in cars.”

The problem here is obvious- even giving the dog the benefit of the doubt, probable cause means that the search is being done because drugs are probably there. What the cop in the above quote is saying is that by alerting, the dog is indicating that drugs may have been there at some time in the past. The dog indicates the odor of drugs, but not the presence of drugs. That isn’t the same thing and shouldn’t be enough to trigger a warrantless search of someone’s property.

Anyhow, back to the story at hand.

The silver was seized and taken to the state police barracks in Milton where Schifter claimed he had bought them periodically over the past several months at Nevada Coin and Jewelry but did not have any receipts.

Contact was made with the manager of the business who said Schifter always paid cash.

A review of receipts that were obtained revealed eight purchases for silver bullion between Oct. 17 and Dec. 19, 2019, totaling $64,904. One was in the name of the woman with him and the others in his.

That should have been the end of it. If they can’t prove that he bought the coins with the results of criminal enterprise in court, that is the end of it.

There were suspicions of money laundering because an ion scan indicated the cash had been in close proximity of high levels of methamphetamine.

We aren’t talking about cash. Where did cash enter this story? Just bad reporting. Are they saying that Schifter had cash on him that tested positive for drug residue? So what, most of the money in the nation does.

This is nothing more than theft. The government is out to steal your possessions. Asset forfeiture is theft. It is unconstitutional, but the courts don’t care about that.

End Run

If a cop asks a criminal to break into your house to search it for evidence of a crime as an end run around the Fourth Amendment’s requirement for a search warrant, is that an infringement of your rights?

If the government asks a media company to censor free speech in order to influence an election, were people’s rights violated?

The FBI is the Sword and Shield of the Democrat party.

Dual Justice System

Two women are being forced to pay $40,000 in fines and facing up to 5 years in prison as a part of a plea deal for ‘transporting stolen property’ in the form of Ashley Biden’s diary that detailed sexual improprieties that the President was taking with his daughter. The plea deal is the culmination of a years long investigation into a crime that sounds like the title to a Hardy Boys book- “The Case of the Missing Diary.”

Contrast that with “The Case of the Purloined Letter.” Or have we all forgotten about Bob Woodward stealing documents right off of Donald Trump’s desk? In this case, it was the draft copy of a trade deal between the US and South Korea. Isn’t that interference with an official proceeding? Stealing government documents?

It’s painfully obvious that the FBI is the Sword and Shield of the Democrat party when a lost diary gets a 2 year investigation and a 5 year jail sentence, but stealing a treaty from the Oval office and in the process interfering with official government business gets you an advance for a tell all book.

Still Going On

More than a year and a half later, the FBI is still arresting people for J6. At least 45 more arrests were made in Florida this week.

The FBI claims that they are now analyzing social media pictures to see if people in the J6 photos are wearing the same clothes in social media posts.

ATF

The ATF needs two weeks to complete a gun trace. That, according to NBC, is just insanity. The ATF likes to blame this on the fact that they are not permitted to keep a registry of where all of the guns are. Any of us in the gun culture know that this is bullshit. How do we know?

The NFTR is a database of all NFA weapons: short barreled rifles and shotguns, machine guns, silencers, and AOWs. In short, a database that is supposed to be kept by the ATF of where every registered weapon in those categories is located. Dealers in those weapons are regularly inspected. ATF’s own inspectors reported to the Office of the Inspector General that 86 percent of the time, they find errors in the ATF database.

Of course, the point of the NBC article is that we must establish a nationwide firearm registry so we can make everyone safe. Did you know that last year, nearly 20,000 ghost guns were confiscated in criminal investigations around the country, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives? This sounds serious, right?

Except it’s misleading at best, outright bullshit at worst. ATF is including ALL weapons without serial numbers in its definition of “ghost gun” in order to make the problem sound worse than it is. Even so, the ATF traces half a million firearms every year. So the number of “ghost guns” being traced by ATF represents less than 4 percent of the total number of firearms being traced.

To make the article even more dishonest, CBS includes this picture of a confiscated firearm:

Ghost gun or not, this firearm is already illegal. It is a picture of what is either an SBR or an AOW. If you don’t know why I say that the ATF rules are arbitrary and stupid? Read this post.

Even when you DO comply with the law, the ATF will go to extraordinary lengths to put you away. There was a case where the ATF took a legal semiauto rifle, cut the welded FCG out of the rifle, and then replaced the entire FCG with a full auto FCG, which permitted the technician to fire it in full auto. They then prosecuted him for possession of an unregistered machine gun. The jury was not having it, and he was found not guilty. Imagine how much THAT cost in legal fees.

IRS cops

Check this out. These agents will be going after landscapers, roofers, and others. Not billionaires. How do I know? Here is one job posting, and it is in the “Small Business Self Employed Office of Fraud Enforcement Field Operations” division. They carry guns, ammo, and “no Tasers:” dead or alive, you are coming with me:

I would also say that the way the agent is teaching how to apply handcuffs is not correct, according to how I was taught. You don’t “smack” the handcuffs on, because that is painful for the arrestee. Why be an asshole?

It looks like they are also looking for digital currency tax dodgers.

Interestingly, they refer to tax evasion as “stealing from the government.”

This is Important

I think that reading this article is important. See if you can read between the lines and come to the same conclusion that I did.

The story goes like this: The Oversight Committee of the House of Representatives told the CEO of Smith and Wesson to appear before the committee so that other invitees who were the family members of people killed by criminal actors could pile on the hate and blame Smith and Wesson for the deaths. The CEO of Smith and Wesson wisely refused to attend.

The Chairman of the Oversight committee then said that Smith and Wesson would pay a price for their impertinence.

“The CEO of Smith & Wesson refused to testify before my Committee and face the families who’ve lost a loved one because of his company’s weapons of war. Highland Park, Parkland, San Bernardino, Aurora — these mass murders were all committed with Smith & Wesson assault weapons,” Maloney said. “As the world watches the families of Parkland victims relive their trauma through the shooter’s trial, it is unconscionable that Smith & Wesson is still refusing to take responsibility for selling the assault weapons used to massacre Americans.”

Make no mistake, this was no investigation. This was a politician wanting to use political power to punish someone while grandstanding in front of the press. Fuck him. I wouldn’t have gone either.

Even worse, they try use Kyle Rittenhouse’s use of force in self defense against the company.:

Kyle Rittenhouse also used a Smith & Wesson rifle to kill two people and injured a third during a 2020 protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rittenhouse was acquitted on all counts related to the shootings.

The committee has issued a subpoena to Smith & Wesson for documents related to its manufacturing and sale of AR-15- style firearms. My guess is that the FBI will be raiding Smith and Wesson soon.

My answer would be: GFY. I don’t think that I would answer this subpoena. There are still such things as Constitutional rights, I am not giving you information because you want to go on a fishing expedition. You got PC for a specific crime? Go for it. Until then, GFY.
