Apparently The Ricin Terrorist Is A Democrat

Oooooh - Ouch.

kc

MSNBC and CNN hardest hit.

Some conservative bloggers actually I.D.’d  the guy before his arrest was made known. The guy had left a painfully obvious internet trail.

Blogging buddy, Lady Libertyexplains:

Liberty speaks, out of curiosity, started this morning started searching one of the key phrases said to be in the letters as reported by FOX News:

An FBI bulletin obtained by Fox News said the letter sent to Obama is still being screened, though it initially tested positive.

The bulletin said both letters included the phrase: “To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.”

Both were signed, “I am KC and I approve this message.”

Liberty Speaks was able to find a post tied to a Chiropractor practice called Baker Chiropractic which featured one of the key phrases above:

“To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.”
- Dr John Raymond Baker

A link on this post led to another post in which Kevin Curtis, “Elvisguy’ (yes, he’s an Elvis impersonator) commented.

“Mr. Kirwan, I applaud you and anyone else out there who has the courage to step up to the plate with no fear of retaliation from those with something to lose by the threat that those who speak out and take action may cause…know what I mean? Kevin Curtis, Mississippi Activist”

So Liberty Speaks decided to Google Kevin Curtis, ‘Elvisguy’ and came up with his Facebook page which turned out to be a goldmine..

On that page, several posts caught the eye, one in particular was promoting a friend for mayor and included references to both President Obama and Senator Wicker. The post included the phrase:

“This is KC and I approve this message” (link to page)

Also on the About tab for Curtis, we find the other phrase from the Ricin letters:

“To see a wrong and not expose it,
is to become a silent partner to its continuance.”

Game over. Enough said.

 ….While we did not get a screen shot of the above quotes, we did grab some others:

Right,  Paul Kevin Curtis was a big supporter of the Democrat candidate for Mayor, Jason Shelton, who seems like a decent fellow. It’s not his fault one of his supporters is a psychopath.

UPDATE:

AP NEWSBREAK: RICIN SUSPECT RELEASED FROM JAIL:

The Mississippi man charged with sending poisoned letters to President Barack Obama, a U.S. senator and a state judge was released from jail on Tuesday, federal official said, though the reason for the release wasn’t immediately clear.

Jeff Woodfin, chief deputy with the U.S. Marshals Service in Oxford, Miss., said Paul Kevin Curtis has been released from custody. Woodfin said he doesn’t know if there were any conditions on the release.

The development comes hours after officials canceled a detention and preliminary hearing without explaining the reason for the change.

His lawyer Christi McCoy, who has been pushing for the charges to be dropped, said in a text message Tuesday that she could only confirm that her client has been released.

“I can tell you he is with his family,” McCoy said.

McCoy has said that there is a news conference scheduled for 5 p.m. CDT with federal authorities and defense attorneys.

Curtis was arrested last Wednesday at his house in Corinth, Miss., and charged with sending ricin-laced letters to Obama, Sen. Roger Wicker and a Lee County, Miss., judge.

Tuesday’s hearing in federal court was canceled about 90 minutes after it was supposed to begin. Lawyers spent that time conferring with the judge. Later, Curtis and family members were escorted into a meeting room with his lawyers, followed by a probation officer.

On Monday, FBI Agent Brandon Grant testified that Friday searches of Curtis’ vehicle and house in Corinth, Miss., found no ricin, ingredients for the poison, or devices used to make it. A search of Curtis’ computers found no evidence he researched making ricin.

It’s now thought that Curtis was framed.

WA Moonbat Cult Leader JZ Knight’s Anti-Catholic Rants Prompt Calls for Democrats to Return Campaign Cash (Video)

Politics can get really weird on the left coast, just ask Zombie, who recently covered the “Rally for Nudity,” that took place in the city’s Castro District on Saturday, October 20. Out of all the serious issues out there that people should be concerned about – the crushing debt, government corruption, Fast and Furious, Benghazi – this bunch chooses to protest over public nudity laws.  Click on the link and remind yourself that these are the very same people who call conservatives “right wing wackos”.

We find the same dynamic in Yelm, Washington, where we have a far-left moonbat cult leader who gives generously to the Washington State Democrat Party, the Democrat National Committee, the Democrat candidates for state and local office, and Obama, and rails against the Catholic church, Jews, and gays. She tells her deluded cult-followers that Republicans are  “low info voters”.

The NW Daily Marker reported:

Democrats on the bottom of the ticket in Washington state all the way to the very top are caught in a pickle. Stand against religious bigotry or give back some $60,000 in state campaign cash contributed by world-famous spiritual channeler JZ Knight after videos showing Knight preaching hatred of Catholics became public.

In a story that may become a national news story as soon as tomorrow morning, Knight is seen and heard on video to let loose a profanity-strewn rant against Catholics and has been a frequent and generous contributor to Democrats here in Washington and at the national level. Knight’s contributions to Democrat at all levels total more than $120,000 for the current election cycle.

As of Tuesday, Democrats are deciding to take Knight’s money and run, an equivocation that could produce significant controversy among swing voters just as many are marking their ballots to decide a very close election.

The video evidence of Knight’s tirades are difficult to watch.

“F— you, you Catholics!” Knight bellows over cheers from her audience.

“We will come on you in a terror,” Knight growls in another cut. “We will bring… St. Peter’s temple down and we will swallow it in the sea.” (“St. Peter’s temple” is a reference to the Catholic church itself.)

The entirety of hateful language used by Knight defied redaction to meet our standards for publication. For the full context, you will have to brace yourself and view the videos. We warn you use discretion when viewing these where the general public and especially small children may be present. It’s very rough stuff.

 Thurston County Commissioner Sandra Romero is featured in the first video receiving Knight’s blessing of her 2012 re-election bid. You can watch a second video at the NW Daily Marker.

Keep in mind, Knight is supposed to be “channeling” an entity named Ramtha of the lost land of “Lemuria”  (no longer considered a valid scientific hypothesis) who’s 35,000 years old and apparently has it in for Catholics, Jews and gays.

Extreme language warning:

Washington State Republican Party Chairman Kirby Wilbur issued a sharply-worded public request to Washington State Democratic Party Chairman Dwight Pelzto return contributions Knight has given to them in this election cycle.

“This video that was recently posted online is nothing short of repulsive,” Wilbur said in a statement released Monday. “I am personally disgusted by the sickening things uttered by Knight on the tape. She is anti-Catholic, anti-Semitic, homophobic, vulgar and profane. She donated $50,000 to the State Democratic Party this year and I am asking Chairman Dwight Pelz to return that donation.”

The strongest response from Democrats noted so far has been from State Democratic Party spokesman Benton Strong, but it doesn’t indicate much willingness to see things Wilbur’s way. From The Olympian’s Tuesday online edition:

Democratic Party spokesman Benton Strong distanced the party from Knight’s comments, but said Democrats would not give back the money.

The public relations spokesman for the cult says that the offending quotes were “taken out of context.”.

That seems to happen to Democrats, a lot.

Video: Why Chicago Teachers are Striking

Why are They Striking? – Created by Ben Howe for the

Via CNN: The official reasons they’re striking:

Q. What’s the sticking point?

A. Among the major issues, the teachers are negotiating over the length of the school day, objecting to their evaluations being tied to performance and fretting about potential job losses.

Q. How would the length of school days change?

A. Elementary students would gain 75 minutes to create a seven-hour school day. High school students would gain 30 minutes to create a seven-and-a-half-hour school day. Teachers wants additional .money to teach the additional hours.

They are also asking for a hefty 30% pay raise in a city where only 15 percent of fourth graders are proficient in reading, and only 56 percent actually graduate from high school:

Some facts you may not have seen (unless, of course, you’ve been reading the Foundry): the average Chicago teacher makes $71,000 a year before benefits. That’s $24,000 more than the average Chicago resident, and second only to New York City in teachers’ salaries.

BTW, The Senate Did Too Conduct Business During Pro-Forma Session

http://townhall.com/political-cartoons/natebeeler

Dan Pfeiffer: January 4, 2012:

 The Senate has effectively been in recess for weeks, and is expected to remain in recess for weeks.  In an overt attempt to prevent the President from exercising his authority during this period, Republican Senators insisted on using a gimmick called “pro forma” sessions, which are sessions during which no Senate business is conducted and instead one or two Senators simply gavel in and out of session in a matter of seconds.

Jay Carney, Jan 5, 2012:

I defy you to find anything like a quarum – anything like even enough people to fill this room,   You might find them in very warm places, or snowy places having fundraisers.

No Senate business, eh? They all flew off  to “warm places having fundraisers”… (sound like anyone we know?)

Hans Von Spakovsky for PJ Tatler, reports:

…a simple review of the Congressional Record (“CR”) shows that claim to be categorically false.

Most senators left D.C. on Dec. 17 after scheduling pro forma sessions for December and January.  The CR for Dec. 17 shows that Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) received unanimous consent to schedule Dec. 23 as a pro forma session.

The CR for Dec. 23 shows that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid specifically asked for unanimous consent for H.R. 3765 so “that if the House passes and sends to the Senate a bill which is identical to the text extension of the reduced payroll tax, unemployment insurance, TANF, and the Medicare payment fix, the bill be considered read three times and passed.”

In that pro forma session, Reid received unanimous consent and the two-month extension of the payroll tax break that had caused such a political commotion in Washington was considered read and passed in the Senate after the House acted. That’s not a “gimmick.” That’s legislating.

That same CR for the Dec. 23 pro forma session records a series of other business actions taken by the Senate.  The President pro tempore signed several enrolled bills.  Other senators were designated as members of a conference committee to negotiate with the House over disagreements to H.R. 3630.   The minority leader even made appointments  to the United States-China Economic and Security Review Commission, pursuant to 22 U.S.C. § 7002.

Contrary to White House assertions, the Senate unquestionably conducted actual business during at least one of its supposedly pro forma sessions.  This simple fact makes President Obama’s actions even more indefensible.

Rest here.

Mexican Consulate In Santa Ana, CA Sets Up ID Center on UNITED STATES PUBLIC SCHOOL PROPERTY (Update: OLD)

Isn’t this special? No doubt emboldened by the Obama’s lawless behavior encouraging illegal immigration,  the Mexican Consulate in Santa Ana CA is engaging in its own lawless behavior, essentially granting backdoor amnesty to illegals on public property by issuing them ID cards, while United States citizens, unable to do anything about it, watch helplessly…

Via Noisy Room:

LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE ALLOWED CONGRESS!!!

The Santa Ana, CA, Mexican Consulate set up a mobile Mexican Matricula Consular ID center on UNITED STATES PUBLIC SCHOOL PROPERTY – Capistrano School District (one of the most conservative parts of Califormia) at the Adult English Language Development Center located at 31351 Camino Real, San Juan Capistrano, CA.

Mexican Consulate Mobile Matricula Consular Center

Mexican Nationals in the U.S. ILLEGALLY do NOT have a green card and therefore need a Mexican matricula consular identification card – matricula means: of a like group and consular means: from a consulate.

Box of matricula consular application forms on US public school property.

Presence of the Minutemen had a chilling effect on the assembled. The mobile center was shut down – see above photo.

Once Minutemen began to observe and report, documenting and photographing, the Mexican Nationals no longer ventured forth to the center and many, who had been in attendance, left the mobile center.

MEXICAN DIPLOMAT TELLS MINUTEMEN – LEAVE!

DIPLOMAT ASSAULTS!

To our utter amazement, the diplomat started to strike out at the Minutewoman! We were in a state of shock. As she yelled, she struck across the Minutewoman’s lower right jaw and lip, several times.

The Minutewoman above, in her left hand, used her sign as a shield, while pulling her camera back from the assaulting Mexican diplomat.

Ten minutes after the assault, the Minutewoman still had a “stinging” sensation on her lip and jaw area.

Incredibly, the diplomat called the police on the Minutemen, who promptly asked for paperwork giving them permission to use the facility. When she told him she didn’t have it with her, he asked her for her I.D. She didn’t have that, either.

After the officer spoke with the diplomat, he returned to his vehicle and spoke on his cell phone for about 15 to 20 minutes.

After he hung up, he met with us. He said the consulate did not have paperwork, but that he had spoken to the individual who had granted the use of the school. He said that we could continue to assemble on the school property.

He appeared sympathetic about the Minutewoman assault, but said the Mexican Consulate staff had diplomatic immunity.

Noisy Room reports that more than 350 financial institutions accept Matricula Consular cards as proof of identification thereby allowing thousands of illegal immigrants to have access to mainstream U.S. financial services.

Spread the word.

UPDATE:

FreedomActionNow sends word that this is a years old story.  Should have known…this stuff has been going on for awhile. Just think: If they were getting away with that three years ago, imagine what they can get away with now.

Am I the Only One…

…who wants to choke the s*** of the people on “our side” of the political spectrum when they keep attacking the non-expert/experienced politicians who have decided to endure hostile, partisan reporters spelunking in their sphincters and uteruses, and the scorn and derision of pundits, who often have done nothing remotely risky in their lives other than ordering iffy fish at swanky restaurants or daring to buy a suit off the rack, rather than visiting their tailor for their latest Armani.

I’d like to know when so many conservatives bought into the idea that our leaders must be drawn from the pool of experts and experienced politicians.  A careful reading of the Federalist Papers and other assorted writings make it clear that the Framers certainly never envisioned a government consisting of career politicians and professional experts rich in “knowledge” largely or completely unsupported by real world experience.  But honestly, as far afield as we have strayed from so many other things that they intended, I find this gradual acquiescence less frustrating than the unrestrained contempt that so many of these so-called conservative “journalists”, talking heads, and their devoted followers have for people like Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, or even Michelle Bachmann.

Whether it’s the vacuous and groundless criticisms leveled at Sarah Palin, (She’s dumb, she’s a hillbilly, Trig isn’t hers, OMG, she didn’t give a polished and pat answer to the hostile reporter’s query, its her fault the nutbar shot Gabby Giffords, or that she’s a quitter because she decided to stop costing the taxpayers of Alaska money fighting boundless and, ultimately frivolous ethics complaints and resigned the governorship), the “he doesn’t have a policy plan for every single contingency” leveled at Herman Cain, someone who I would wager has more ideas that would actually grow the economy and jobs in his little finger than The President and all of Congress have between themselves and their legions of advisors and staff.  Besides, I’m quite sure that the only reason an “electable candidate” like Mitt Romney can cogently answer a specific foreign policy question because at least one or more paid advisor has advised him on a safe, or expected answer to such question.  Be honest, do you think at his first inauguration, George W. Bush was planning to spend the majority of time in office in charge of conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, or that he thought that we would suffer a devastating terrorist attack on our soil that would kill thousands of American civilians, or that a cadre of career Democratic appointees going through a revolving door at Freddie and Fannie would feed an unsustainable bubble by guaranteeing bad loans and personally enriching themselves in the process, despite it being brought to his attention once in office, and his numerous warnings to Congress about their dreadful oversight after it was brought to his attention.

The fact that these criticisms come from people who haven’t decided to subject themselves to the inevitable criticism and scrutiny directed at these candidates is irritating.  These people aren’t making the decision to run because they want power.  Despite the claims to the contrary, they don’t do it for “the fame”.  I’m quite certain that Governor Palin hasn’t appreciated “the fame” that has made her daughters the focus of David Letterman’s creepy sexual innuendos, or Andy Sullivan all but petition the courts to make his own gynecological examination of her nethers.  I’m equally certain that Herman Cain didn’t decide to move into the public eye and run for office because he’d like to be President.  Representative Bachmann on the other hand, clearly enjoys driving partisan hacks like Chrissy “Tingles” Matthews insane when she purposely doesn’t play the role that he hamfistedly tries to maneuver her into.  But then, to hear some talking head with a complete lack of understanding of the tax code prattling on and pretending to know more than her would lead me to frustrate the sputtering simpleton at every opportunity as well.  No, these people made the decision to step away from their lives because they could no longer ignore the fact that decades of leadership by the experienced and the experts isn’t working.  And what thanks do they get?  A complete eclipse of consideration by self-appointed deciders obsessed with talking points, elaborate plans which may or may not survive the events of the potential candidate’s administration, ‘electablity’-otherwise known as the careful positioning that ensures that the candidate doesn’t really have a position that would evoke a strong feeling by any potential voter, and policy expertise informed by, well, more experts.  And then they lament months later the fact that the new boss is largely undistinguishable from the old boss.

I have an idea.

How about you journalists, pundits, loyal followers and other deciders who purport to be on our side try a novel strategy this time?

Shut the hell up and let us decide, m’kay?

Video:Rush Says Nothing On His Program Is Staged – Ever

Unfortunately, it became necessary this week, for Rush to explain to audience  that he doesn’t take callers from paid actors, a charge, that  he maintains, doesn’t even make much business sense for a show like his.

The story he’s referring to, originally appeared in The Tablet Magazine on the 11th of February, and suggested that shows like Limbaugh’s, Hannity’s, and Beck’s take fake, paid callers:

“I was surprised that it seemed so open,” the actor told me in an interview. “There was really no pretense of covering it up.”

Curious, the actor did some snooping and learned that Premiere On Call was a service offered by Premiere Radio Networks, the largest syndication company in the United States and a subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications, the entertainment and advertising giant. Premiere syndicates some of the more sterling names in radio, including Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Sean Hannity. But a great radio show depends as much on great callers as it does on great hosts: Enter Premiere On Call.

“Premiere On Call is our new custom caller service,” read the service’s website, which disappeared as this story was being reported (for a cached version of the site click here). “We supply voice talent to take/make your on-air calls, improvise your scenes or deliver your scripts. Using our simple online booking tool, specify the kind of voice you need, and we’ll get your the right person fast. Unless you request it, you won’t hear that same voice again for at least two months, ensuring the authenticity of your programming for avid listeners.”

Rush clarifies, it’s FM morning shows that use these types of paid actors:
