RANDOM SHOTS! Obama & Hugo Chavez, George Washington, Disabled MMA Fireman, and More!


FIRST SHOT!

Obama Supported Socialist Dictator against Democracy in Honduras, so why does Venezuelan Dictator Chavez blame Obama for Cancer?

Dictators always have to blame someone else for their troubles - that's just what they do to divert attention away from their own problems which in most cases was caused by them in the first place.

For a long time, Chavez has questioned whether the U.S. government could be plotting to oust him. No big surprise there. But honestly, Chavez has had to find comfort with Barack Obama in the White House.

After all, Obama has been quick to side with the world's Socialist Dictators and against the defense of Democracy taking place.

Look at what happened just a few months after he entered office in June and July of 2009 in Honduras. In the case of Honduras Socialist Dictator Manuel Zelaya, many still remember how Obama took the side of the Socialist Dictator over those in the coup to bring Democracy to Honduras.

It's been nearly three years, and hundreds of political murders have taken place, but it seems that the Obama administration is still on the side of repression and denial of Hondurans' basic human rights. So with a track record like that, why would a Socialist Dictator like Chavez even think that Obama is not sympathetic to him.

It is said that a Dictator has a long memory and remembers those who cross him. Most tyrants want their people to have a short memory. Their problem is that some people do, and some don't.

Earlier this week, Venezuelan Dictator Chavez proved that his memory might not be as good as it should be.

He must have forgotten that his friend Barack Obama was a staunch supporter of Socialist Dictators like himself, when Chavez said that "it was very strange" that he "and the leaders of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay have struggled with cancer lately."

Chavez went on to say that he does not have any proof that the U.S. is behind this - but asked, "Would it be strange if they [United States] had developed a technology to induce cancer and no one knew it?"

The Obama administration has strongly denounced Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for questioning whether the U.S. might be behind a rash of cancer cases among Latin American leaders. Since being elected, many Americans have just take it for granted that Obama likes Socialism or is a Socialist himself.

I can't help but wonder if President Obama was hurt by the suggestion that he'd actually hurt a fellow Socialist, and maybe said something like, "That really hurts considering some of my best friends are Socialist - just check with Bill Ayers!"  

Yes, all birds of a feather flock together!

SECOND SHOT!
 
Congressman Allen West says "No Regrets Calling Democrats Communists"
 
As a young U.S. Marine, I remember going through training regarding the Communist threat to our nation and our way of life. Later after leaving the Marine Corps, I entered College and found that many there - especially many members of the faculty - reminded me of the profile of faithful Communists. 
 
As I got older and listened to many Liberals, many who were leaders of the Democrat Party, I saw and noted that they were indeed spouting off Communist Doctrine just like one of the devout faithful would. Never in my wildest imagination would I have thought that one day a U.S. Congressman would actually call it like it is and tell the word what he sees in Washington, D.C. in the halls of Congress.
 
It never occurred to me that a Congressman, with similar military training in understanding the Communist threat, would actually come forward and say what many Americans have thought for years.
 
On April 13th, U.S. Congressman Allen West said "The Democratic Party is full of Communists."
 
Rep. Allen West of Florida is a Tea Party favorite and the only Republican member of the Congressional Black Caucus.
 
At a town hall meeting in Palm City, Florida, Rep West said that he believes there are "about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party."

The comments came after a member of the audience asked him what percentage of Congress are "card-carrying Marxists"? After a drawn-out pause, West clarified his claim, saying, "It's actually called the Congressional Progressive Caucus."

Holy cow, were the Liberals in Washington upset about that. So much that almost all of their usually propaganda media sources called for Representative Allen West to apologize.

Well, on April 17th, Congressman Allen West refused to back away from earlier remarks to constituents in Florida that dozens of Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives were Communists.

The freshman Republican, who is backed by the Tea Party, was asked at a forum whether he had second thoughts about calling the 78 members of the House Progressive Caucus Communists.

"I don't regret it whatsoever," said Representative West - who is being mentioned as a possible running mate for the Vice President slot this year.

"There is a very thin line between Communism, Progressivism, Marxism, Socialism ... it's about nationalizing production, it's about creating and expanding the welfare state. It's about this idea of social and economic justice," said West.

West served in the United States Army for more than 20 years of active duty service, including several combat deployments in Iraq. He achieved the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. After leaving the military he and his family moved to Florida where he taught high school for a year and worked for a defense contractor, including in Afghanistan as a civilian adviser to the Afghan National Army.

To his credit, he has many awards and decorations including the Bronze Star for bravery.

Representative West has asked  fellow Conservatives for their help in his re-election campaign. And no, he has not backed down - but instead is repeating his belief that members of the Progressive Caucus are akin to Communists.

 
THIRD SHOT!

George Washington named as Great Britain's Greatest Military Opponent Ever!

Imagine that  for a moment. We're talking about a nation that has been around for hundreds of years, yet George Washington has been named Great Britain's Greatest Military Opponent ever. It's just hard to believe really.

Great Britain's greatest ever foe was George Washington, according to the United Kingdom's National Army Museum.

During the American Revolution, 1775 to 1787, Congress created the Continental Army on June 14, 1775. George Washington was appointed Major General and Commander-in-chief.

Washington had three roles during the war. In 1775–77, and again in 1781 he led his men against the main British forces. Although he lost many of his battles, he never surrendered his army during the war, and he continued to fight the British relentlessly until the war's end. He plotted the overall strategy of the war, in cooperation with Congress.

Second, he was charged with organizing and training the army. He recruited regulars and assigned Baron and General Friedrich von Steuben, a veteran of the Prussian general staff, to train them. The war effort and getting supplies to the troops were under the purview of Congress, but Washington pressured the Congress to provide the essentials.

In June 1776, Congress' first attempt at running the war effort was established with the committee known as "Board of War and Ordnance", succeeded by the Board of War in July 1777, a committee which eventually included members of the military.

The command structure of the Americans' armed forces was a hodgepodge of Congressional appointees. Congress also had the habit of sometimes making those appointments without Washington's input with state-appointments filling the lower ranks and of all of the militia-officers. The results of his general staff were mixed, as some of his favorites like John Sullivan never mastered the art of command.

Eventually Washington found capable officers, like General Nathaniel Greene, and his chief-of-staff Alexander Hamilton. The American officers never equalled their British opponents in tactics and maneuver, and consequently they lost most of the pitched battles.

The great successes, at Boston (1776), Saratoga (1777) and Yorktown (1781), came from trapping the British far from base with much larger numbers of troops.

Third, and most important, Washington was the embodiment of America's armed resistance to the Crown. He was the representative man of the Revolution. His enormous stature and political skills kept Congress, the Army, our French allies, the many state and local militias, and the states all pointed toward a common goal.

Then by voluntarily stepping down and disbanding his Army when the war was won, he permanently established the principle of civilian supremacy in military affairs.

Earlier in the 1780s, George Washington had been approached twice by the officers who promised their support if he decided to seize civilian power. In one famous incident in 1782, Col. Lewis Nicola wrote a letter urging Washington to overthrow Congress and become America's King. Washington instead scolded Nicola the very same day.

Then in 1783, Washington caught wind of officers wanting to stage a coup d'état against Congress. The so-called Newburgh Conspirators were frustrated that Congress was not paying them what had been promised when the nation desperately needed their sacrifice. Washington would not be moved.

On the Ides of March - a date rich in irony for its association with the tyranny and assassination of Julius Caesar - he called the men together and sternly reprimanded them for losing faith in the idea of America. The new nation had a chance to succeed only if its leaders and military adhered to the rule of law. This was the non-negotiable foundation of a free republic.

When King George III of England heard that George Washington would resign his commission to a powerless Congress instead of being America's King, he told the painter Benjamin West,  "If he does that, he will be the greatest man in the world."

He later presided over the writing of our Constitution in 1787.

As all Americans should know, and I blame Liberal Teachers if everyone doesn't, George Washington was the first President of the United States of America. He served as such from 1789 to 1797.

He was in fact the dominant military and political leader of the United States from 1775 to 1799. Washington became the first president by unanimous choice, and oversaw the creation of a strong, well-financed national government that maintained neutrality in the wars raging in Europe, suppressed rebellion and won acceptance among Americans of all types.

Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I of France) said, "Posterity will talk of Washington as the Founder of a Great Empire, when my name shall be lost in the vortex of revolution."

The American Revolutionary War hero and first President became the winner of a vote held at the United Kingdom's National Army Museum to identify Great Britain's most outstanding military opponent, reported by the The (London) Daily Telegraph.

The museum drew up a list of 20 candidates, which was whittled down to a shortlist of five. On Saturday, five historians presented the case for each commander to an audience of 70 guests at the west London museum who then voted.

Washington was named ahead of Michael Collins, who led Ireland to independence from the United Kingdom, France's Napoleon Bonaparte, World War II German commander Erwin Rommel, and Turkish World War I leader Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

To qualify for the vote, each commander had to come from the 17th century onwards - the period covered by the museum's collection - and had to have actually led an army in the field against the British, which excluded political enemies like Adolf Hitler.

 
FOURTH SHOT!

Bride charged with Faking Cancer for lavish Wedding

From The Times Herald-Record, Goshen, New York, authorities there say a former New York woman pretended to have terminal cancer so she could have a lavish wedding reception and honeymoon.

The Times Herald-Record reports that an Orange County Grand Jury has indicted 25-year-old Jessica Vega, a former Montgomery resident, with grand larceny and scheme to defraud.

According to the indictment, Jessica Vega accepted thousands of dollars in donated services and goods after claiming in 2010 that she was dying of leukemia. And yes. even the newspaper ran a story on Vega's wedding wish to be married to the father of her young daughter before she "died."

The small community reportedly came together, and many having sacrificed, contributed thousands and donated services to provide her with the wedding of her dreams. She married Michael O'Connell in May 2010 and the couple spent their honeymoon in Aruba - all paid for by friends and the community who wanted to help a woman in at death's door.

Four months later, the honeymoon was over when Michael O'Connell told the newspaper that Jessica Vega in reality faking the illness.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman told the paper that Jessica Vega "took advantage of the community’s hearts and minds. Our office will hold this individual accountable for fleecing the public through lies and deception."

The couple divorced over the incident, and Michael O'Connell moved to Virginia. Jessica Vega later joined him. They have two children.

"She's a good mom, and that's all that counts at the end of the day," Michael O'Connell said, according to the report. "I want my kids to have their mother back."

Jessica Vega was arraigned and pleaded not guilty. She's being held in county jail on $10,000 bail.

What can you say about someone so sick as to impersonate someone dying of cancer in order to fleece people? I can't really think of the proper word to describe her, scum is too polite and dirt-bag is too gentle. I guess we're just going to have to call her what she is - nothing but criminal trash.


FIFTH SHOT!

Laid-up Los Angeles fireman arrested after being caught MMA Fighting

Years ago a friend blew his back out, and an acquaintance told him don't let "them" catch you doing something stupid that you shouldn't be doing. The "them" was the State's Workers Compensation Insurance. He didn't have to worry about doing anything stupid, he could hardly get around at the time.

Later when he went through Vocational Retraining, he was amazed to hear stories of how many people fake on the job injuries for quick cash settlements. He was shocked to learn how many abuse a system not really designed for the injured worker - but really suited for the opportunist. That is, unless of course he gets caught.

Recently, a laid-up Los Angeles Fireman was arrested on suspicion of Insurance Fraud after he was caught moonlighting as a Mixed Martial Arts Fighter under the name "The Noodle."

Now, we're not talking about some guy who claimed to have a bad back and insurance investigators have pictures of him hauling a sofa - we're talking a guy who is supposed to be injured who is dumb enough to stay with Mixed Martial Arts Fighting while receiving money compensation from the State.

It's just my opinion, but I think he may have taken too many punches to the head because this Fireman is not very bright. 

Prosecutors allege Raphael Davis, 35 years old, filed for Workers' Compensation between Dec. 2, 2008, to May 20, 2011, even though the "injured" Fireman fought in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fights during that time period.

When arrested, Raphael Davis was hit with four felony counts of Insurance Fraud for taking $30,000 in disability checks from the Los Angeles Fire Department.

An office spokeswoman declined to detail what ailments Davis claimed to have that would prevent him from being able to work his regular job. But whatever it was, he is now being held on $30,000 bail and is facing a five-year jail term if convicted.

According to one MMA website, Raphael Davis is 6ft-3in, 203-pounds and has a 12-2 record, and went 6-1 through the workers compensation claim period.


LAST SHOT!

Wisconsin man arrested for slaughtering 100 deer or more in "Thrill Kill"

This is one of those stories that makes me just shake my head and ask why?

In March, four guys in Wisconsin decided to shoot at least 100 deer without a license. Now the hunters are threatening a fine of $ 1,000, or about $ 10 per animal.

That's right! Four Wisconsin man illegally slaughtered as many as 100 deer in what prosecutors call an unprecedented "thrill-kill" spree. They now faces up to six months in jail.

That's all, just six months in jail and a $1000 fine, and they walk.

The oldest is Nathan Blaha, 20 years old, of Hillsboro, Wisconsin. He and his three accomplices allegedly wandered the backroads of Richland County in a pickup truck, stunning deer with a light before shooting them - and yes, they just left their carcasses there to rot.

Supposedly it was a contest to "get the most deer," according to court documents.

"This is the antithesis of hunting," Richland County District Attorney Jennifer Harper told Fox News. "This is thrill killing."

I agree, this isn't hunting. This is a sick sort of blood lust that people in their area should be worried about.

Nathan Blaha, and his accomplices, 17 year old Steven Blaha and 18 year old Brogan Gillingham, face criminal charges in the December killing spree. But it appears that they will only receive lite penalties considering the enormity of the crime.

To me, it's not just about shooting whitetail deer from the road after dark and without a license. It's about the scope and their sick intent. This has nothing to do with hunting. It has everything to do with their twisted idea of entertainment. The aim of unusual entertainment was which of the four could kill more deer.

Blinded by the headlights, the animals near the road were then shot and left to rot. 

District Attorney Jennifer Harper said, a fourth suspect, a juvenile male who has not been named, was issued citations. Steven Blaha, 17, can be tried as an adult under Wisconsin law.

According to a criminal complaint obtained by Fox News, Nathan Blaha is believed to have done most of the shooting and has confessed to killing 20 to 30 deer "this past fall and during the 2011-2012 gun deer season illegally."

"The reason I was doing this was because we all kind of had bets who could get the most deer," Nathan Blaha said in a written statement to Conservation Warden Mike Nice of Richland Center.

But Nathan Blaha's co-defendants estimated the number of slain deer to be much greater, telling authorities they believe he illegally shot and killed as many as 100 whitetail deer within the past two years.

"There have been cases of shining and road hunting," Harper said, "but nothing to this extent."

Deer "shining" is the practice of using a high-powered, hand-held light to see the animal at night. The bright light is commonly used by hunters to track the location of deer herds at night when the animals are most active.

Nathan Blaha, 20,  is charged with three counts that each carry a penalty of up to six months in jail and a $1,000 minimum fine. He also faces revocation of hunting rights for the next nine years.

Nine years, that it? Nine years? Folks, these young Jerkweeds should never be allowed to hunt and kill anything again.

Nine years! That's insane when looking at what they have done and why. And yes, the reason they did this is the most important part of this story.

My God, it was for entertainment!

The investigation into the illegal deer killings began when private landowners reported hearing gunshots at night and finding deer carcasses on their properties.

Licensed deer hunting is a time-honored tradition throughout the scenic landscape of Richland County and other parts of the state during a nine-day period around Thanksgiving. Like other states, residents must obtain a license and conform to various regulations and ethical rules. Hunters can use only certain kinds of weapons, for example, and are prohibited from shooting after sundown.

The suspected illegal slaughtering of deer by Nathan Blaha violates all of the rules of hunting, authorities said, and has since outraged many hunters and conservation groups who claim Nathan Blaha may have depleted the herd and brought unfair notoriety to the sport.

"Some people hear this story and they think that’s what hunters do," said Jeffrey Schinkten, president of Whitetails Unlimited, a national conservation organization based in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.

"He’s not a hunter. He’s a game thief," Schinkten told Fox News. "I hope they throw the book at him. It’s unconscionable."

I agree. Nathan Blaha is not a deer hunter, he is a criminal and should be tried much more harsh than what he will get for doing what he has done. As far as I'm concerned, he and his brother should a few years in prison for the needless slaughter.

What a waste! Such a crime! Such creeps! They wouldn't last long around this neck of the woods. To actually receive joy from killing deer like that, with those numbers, is just sad.

In this area, everyone hunts - but we never see stuff like this. This is just too sick to accept simply as just kids having fun.  Killing deer for entertainment, makes me wonder what if they got bored with that and decided to move to shooting people - for entertainment. 

These creeps should not be in possession of any type of firearm ever again. Any hunter worth his salt would never allow these jerks to have hunting permits again, nevertheless allow them the possibility of handling firearms. This guys are sick.
