A Gun pointed at your head

                                           A Gun pointed at your head

Obama Care and many federal programs start with grand ideals and end up as a gun pointed at the heads of the American people. The gun is taxation and threats of fines, demonization and jail time for those who fail to pay or go along with the programs.

The 10th amendment States that Powers not granted to the federal government nor prohibited to it by the States are reserved to the states or the people.”

My Question is when and how did we the people grant the feds with the power to take control of healthcare, welfare, education, the environment and the very idea of federal supremacy over laws and issues not specifically granted the federal government by the Constitution of the United States. Was there some kind of Kabuki dance by our elected officials to override the 10th amendment?

“He has erected a Multitude of new offices, and sent hither Swarms of new Officers to harass our people, and eat out their Substances”(Declaration of independence par. 12)

It now seems that what King George did; We are now doing to ourselves.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, (Declaration of independence par. 2)

When the choice of our leaders comes down to a choice between someone that respects the constitution and one that believes that the constitution is an obstacle to the tyrannical rule she desires. One who has promised to appoint judges that would water down the safeguard of our liberty guaranteed in the constitution.

The choice is clear

Blog 83 theknockerblog.com The Vast Left wing conspiracy

Hillary Clinton clamed a right wing conspiracy. The evidence shows there is a leftwing conspiracy between President, FBI, State, News media, IRS

What is Conspiracy?.

“If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

If, however, the offense, the commission of which is the object of the conspiracy, is a misdemeanor only, the punishment for such conspiracy shall not exceed the maximum punishment provided for such misdemeanor.

(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 701; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(L), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)”

What was done?

E- Mails deemed to be the property of the People of the United States, and were required by laws of the United States to be preserved, and Were Under subpoena by the United States congress, were destroyed in an effort to affect the election chances of a political candidate for the office of the presidency of the United States. An Electronic Server Used for official business of the United States and therefor the property of the people of the United States was altered and destroyed without cause by members of the conspiracy. Blackberries and Phones used to conduct official business of the United states and therefor property of the united States were destroyed by conspirators.

Who has done this thing?

The currant sitting President of the United States of America Barrack Obama

A candidate for the office of the presidency of the United Stated Hillary Rodham Clinton

William Jefferson Clinton Husband of the candidate

Attorney General Loretta Lynch FBI Director James Comey

Various staff members of the FBI and DOJ

Various Ranking members of the congress of the United States

Various Staff members of the Clinton Campaign Various Staff members of the State Department

Various Members of the News Media

It Is Apparent to this observer that all or most of the players mentioned above did

“act to effect the object of the conspiracy”

Why did they do it?

To enhance the chances of a political candidate to win an election

What is the solution

The solution Seems Quite Simple Since we as a People cannot trust our elected officials to conduct themselves according to the established law and will in fact corrupt the policing arms of the government i.e. DOJ, FBI, IRS We have to do something to keep politics out of these vital institutions of our government

One more elected office.

I propose an Office of special council, attached to the Supreme Court and branch of the FBI dedicated to special investigations be created. It’s purpose, to Investigate government corruption, and funded by National Sir Tax of some type Its Pay scale set at 100% parity to the office of presidency to  avoid mischief by the congress.

This would have to be a non-partisan position. The applicants and staff must be barred from accepting or donating money to any political office. The candidates must be required to debate on national TV and radio for the job. The term should be two years limited to two terms.

Just my thought

theknockerblog.com Blog 79 In my 30 years in police work I noticed that there is also an over emphasis in many poor black households on “the MAN” Every Ill is blamed on “the Man” This goes on in white homes also but not to the extent that it does in the minority community. The police are wrongly identified as “the man” They should be Identifying “the Man” As their local politicians. There is a need to look in the Mirror for the ones responsible. Politicians are like parents that faced with evidence to the contrary, choose to deny reality; they take the attitude that their child would not do “that” whatever “That is”! Patrol officers hear this all the time. Most just shrug and walk away, knowing that the destruction of the child is thoroughly underway. This is wrong, but it is less likely to generate the thing that the patrolman fears most. That thing is a letter of complaint. In the ass chewing that occurs from one of these letters the political establishment never gives any credit to the officers attempt to point out the problem with defending “Johnny”, when the evidence is that Johnny is a on the path to becoming a “dirt bag corps in an ally” (I know this is harsh reality can be that way sometimes) My Prescription is: Look in the Mirror Take personal responsibility. Apologize for the children, but hold them accountable. Elect politicians that will hold wrong doers accountable; police and civilian alike. Community policing can only be as effective as the community’s willingness to by in. No by in! No peace! I am sick of politicians in both party’s getting away with all the criminal crap they get away with. The double standard is painfully obvious. I want a change to the U.S. constitution to allow the voters to choose an independent attorney general. A non-partisan attorney general would put the fear of god back in all these parties and the politicians that run them and steal from the taxpayer. The crap Hillary pulled, and Nixon before her, are examples. People who wrongfully identify with one or the other parties are made co-conspirators. A pox on both houses and anyone that says “I’m an “R” or I’m a “D “ You are ALL co-conspirators. Just the simple thoughts of a simple man S. Henry Knocker theknockerblog.com

 

Blog 74 theknockerblog.com The left has a yellow streak

 

I have never seen anything like this:

The lefty university administrators seem to have a yellow streak. One bad thing happens and they leave a yellow streak on the road to out of here. They seem content to stay and collect a check. They Coddle the children and strok their own egos, but as soon as something a little bit challenging pops up, they burn up their word processors typing those letters of resignation.

When kids act up I tend to ask, who’s the adult, and who’s the kid?

I have always said that diversity of opinion is a goal in life. If we all think alike some of us are not necessary. This conundrum seems to be what the left has created and is fostering on college campuses’ a one world view. Saul Alinsky rules their world. Thinking themselves wise they have become fools. Where have I heard that before? McCarthyism in the 1930s and now a new “ism” to name in this millennium. OUR Universities are far too important of institutions to be allowed to be used as the incubators of civil war.

These White feathers who light the fuse and run like hell thinking no one notices better think twice. I see it, and I am going to point it out.

Whaling about white privilege, when you are the privileged, is disgusting. Privilege lectures from the privileged goes down like drinking battery acid to a guy who grew up with your parents whispering about me because I had holes in the knees of my pants, before that became fashionable.

Go read the Star Bellied Sneetches and know:  I think you all FOOLS!

Blog 72 theknockerblog.com Abuse of citizens and Police take downs

 

 In the ordinary business of policing the police are obliged to make arrests of belligerent individuals. This is a fact of life in the regulation of human conduct. There are two kinds of belligerents that are commonly encountered resisting arrest. There is the nonviolent resister, mouthy disrespectful beings intent on not following  the directions of authorities. This was as seen in the disgraceful exobition  in a high school classroom this last week. There are also violent resisters such as the one that started the riots in Ferguson Mo.  Both of these ended badly for the same reason.

 

Tombstone courage or failure to recognize the need for backup.

 

 I am a 30 year veteran of policing and a past president of the police guild of a medium sized pacific North West city. (See my book: A View from the Street / River City Policing) I have made many arrest under both of the situations articulated above. I have learn from bitter experience that there is no shame in taking the time to properly ramp up the number of personal needed to make these arrest. One on one may make us feel brave, and we are the home of the brave, but it makes us look like thugs, when we are dealing with some 98 pound, belligerent, thuggish girl, that we can roll up in a ball and  boot into the rear of a patrol car.  It will never look good when viewed through the prisms of the arch enemy of the police “the nightly news”.

 

This is what I have learned

That there is no such thing as a fair fight. Fair exercise of power in an arrest. is five on one. or one officer to control each arm and leg and one officer to explain to the crowd of on lookers why this violent person is being handled in this way. This officers sole responsibility is to point out the areas of resistance to the grate uninformed masses what the hell is going on. I have even gone so far as to call in the fire department and have an individual stretched out  on a back board and laced  up between two back boards because he was so violent and would not quit. This episode was drug induced. One 98 LB. high school girl was so violent that four officers had to hold her down and tie her up with ropes. One of us could have done the job but both the officer and the girl would have suffered great bodily harm. What made her mad? We removed her drunken boyfriend from the dance and she jumped on the back of an officer.

 

The point I am making here is that all officers should whenever possible never try to remove a belligerent one on one. Just because they haven’t clocked you yet don’t mean they won’t, and if they do you are, as a reflex, are going to clock them back. If you don’t get hurt at the scene of the arrest you will be hurt; as seen on the nightly news.  

GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!

Blog 72: theknockerblog.com: Lets think about the office of U.S. Attorney general

 

As a retired police officer the lawlessness of elected officials in the federal government really chaps my rear end.

How many times do the people have to suffer the excesses of politicians? The political class thinks it is immune from prosecution, and they have good reason to think just that.

It is bad enough that wars are conducted without declaration of war from the Congress, and related stuff like that. Obvious criminal acts are openly perpetrated against the people without consequence.

Richard Nixon deceived us, Bill Clinton lied under oath. Lois Lerner conspired with others to use the IRS to harass and intimidate ordinary citizens. General Petraeus and Hillary Clinton were carless with Government secrets. The list goes on and on I guess if you are a deranged Army E4 you can go to prison for dumping secrets on the internet but if you’re a political hack, or friend thereof, running for the presidency you get to claim some kind of political immunity because your party has the white house and controls the Department of Justice.

The time has come to change the way we select the Attorney General. It seems that the politicians can’t be trusted to do the right thing. Maybe we should elect the Attorney General with a two year over lap of the presidential election. They might think twice before pulling any of these political shenanigans. Especially if the statute of limitations is ten years

I know that this idea isn’t going anywhere but me writing it may give someone pause to think and Know that some of us are getting PISTED.

Blog 71 Bill; Hillary

Well here we go, the Bengasi hearings going hot and heavy the pot is calling the kettle black the biggest spenders in the government are worried about the cost of the hearings. Well this independent observer says send the bill to Hillary.

It was Hillary’s lie that started the whole dust up.  If there was any doubt that she and the president were lying in regard to the reason for the Bengasi attack it was dispelled when it came to light that she said one thing to the American people and said quite another to members of her family. If you were on the fence about whether there was a protest that got out of control over a “video” or an Al-Qaeda inspired attack on our people in Libya. It ended when she was pinned down with the E-Mails, to her family and the Egyptians, the day of the attack, and days thereafter.

Hillary is a liar and she lied to us and may have lied to the president. Whether he is a lair too is up for debate. When she lied to us, did she also mislead the president?  As a political matter he may have been a willing dupe. We can’t look into his heart on that. We only know that whole situation stinks to high heaven. Hillary should be made to pay the bill in full for the entire cost of ferreting out the truth.

The time has come in this nation to insist on term limits and further to limit the number of political advisers that a politician can retain on the government payroll. The heads of OUR government agencies need to come from those agencies. Our money should be spent on competent knowledgeable professionals. We don’t need a bunch of political hacks running these organizations. They are supposed to work for us not the political parties. Why can’t we insist that the presidents we higher resign from political parties, fund raising, and partisan involvement of any kind while they work for us?

WHY!   WHY!   WHY!
