ATTENTION: Assault Weapons Ban” Introduced in Congress Today

ar1

House Democrats are making yet another push to restrict the rights of American citizens to purchase certain types of firearms.

Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) has introduced the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2015”. The bill would ban the manufacture and sale of AR-15 rifles and other semi automatic long guns.

“Assault weapons are designed for the sole purpose of killing as many people as quickly as possible,” Cicilline said in a statement to The Hill. “We need to do everything we can to reduce the toll of gun violence by keeping these weapons out of our communities.”

This bill would allow current owners of semi-auto rifles to keep their firearms, however they would not be able to sell or transfer them.

The bill would also deny firearms dealers from selling a firearm if the federal background check does not come back after three days. Under current law, if the background check system does not respond after three days, the dealer can proceed with the transaction.

With a very strong Republican majority in both houses of Congress the bill likely has little chance of passing. However, the bill could signal the Democrats’ intentions when it comes to gun control if they were to win control of Congress in the 2016 election.

“Highly Suspicious” Saudi Civil Defense trucks spotted on Texas highway

A very concerned All News Pipeline reader just sent us the pictures seen above showing a pair of Saudi Arabian ‘Civil Defense’ trucks on a flatbed trailer deep in the heart of Texas. According to our reader, he saw three flatbeds, each of them with two of these vehicles upon them, just the latest strange sightings of foreign military vehicles on American soil and in ‘Jade Helm 15’ Texas at that. These were seen traveling southbound on I-45 just north of Houston, Texas.
Screenshot_from_2015-06-11_203323Foreign militaries on US soil, however, aren’t the only highly suspicious events we’ve been watching unfold in America as for some reason, MANY Wal Marts across the country, specifically in the south and the midwest, have been being evacuated for hours at a time, and to some people who are paying attention, these evacuations just don’t make a whole lot of sense. The 1st video below fromHollywood Joe Tussing adds more mystery to the mix as a massive barge of military vehicles is unloaded in Texas while a Las Vegasmilitary convoy has a blackhawk chopper escort. His warning shortly after the 50 second mark that martial law signs were spotted making their way to Texas has not been confirmed by All News Pipeline.

Between the years of 2008 to 2014, Wal Mart stores across the nation were evacuated a total of approx 16 times according to the interesting new 2nd video below from Professor Doom1; during the first 5 months and 10 days of 2015 alone, Wal Mart evacuations have occurred AT LEAST 30 times across the nation as proven in this 1st video and the story links at the bottom of the page for those who want to check these out themselves. This is not a ‘conspiracy theory’, all of these Wal Marts needing several hour evacuations as outlined by Doom, but a coincidence, or so it seems.

Our videographer tells us that in making this video, he is not stating as fact that even one of these evacuations is for nefarious purposes. He is, however stating that HE believes that AT LEAST 20 of them ARE, but has no proof. Yesterday, a Wal Mart in Alabama was evacuated for 4 hours and federal agencies were involved in the ‘pursuit’ of a man who allegedly stole a car. Just a coincidence, or something more? Police believe that the fact that at least 30 Wal Mart stores in 13 different states have had bomb threats called in is not just a coincidence and believe they are connected.

After receiving the pictures above from the ANP reader in Texas, we decided to do a Google image search of this graphic seen on the front door of the truck; in doing so, we have positively determined that these vehicles are part of Saudi Arabia’s civil defense as seen in screenshot of story below right. What these trucks are doing in the heart of Texas is a different story and one I’m sure we won’t get a satisfactory answer from the govt nor MSM about. Back in 2013 a local Texas outlet ran a story called “Texas Is On Its Way To Being ‘Saudi Texas.'” Did they know something that we should know?

This 1st video is from Hollywood Joe Tussing and he shares with us some startling news at the 50 second mark; this is, however, unconfirmed news and as with all reports on the internet (and TV news for that matter!), attempt to seek confirmation of everything before buying completely. In speaking with the videographer I was told he is attempting to acquire pictures of martial law signs but as of this moment, has been unable to do so.

Geller-Yerushalmi2-800x534

“Killing Jews is worship that brings us closer to Allah” Add Campaign

Controversial posters that state “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah” will be allowed to appear on public buses and trains in New York City. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge John Koeltl ruled against the city’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), which had tried to reject the advertisements on the grounds that they might incite violence against Jews.

MTA staff “underestimate the tolerant quality of New Yorkers and overestimate the potential impact of these fleeting advertisements,” wrote Judge Koeltl in his decision. “Moreover, there is no evidence that seeing one of these advertisements on the back of a bus would be sufficient to trigger a violent reaction. Therefore, these ads—offensive as they may be—are still entitled to First Amendment protection.”

Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), called the ruling “a triumph for liberty and free speech.” AFDI, a pro-Israel advocacy group, is behind both the MTA lawsuit and the posters, which feature a young Muslim man in a headscarf (ostensibly) expressing the murdering-Jews-pleases-Allah sentiment. “That’s His Jihad,” the ads read. “What’s yours?”

AFDI claims its goal is to criticize Hamas and radical Islam. But in creating anti-Semitic, pro-violence ads that can easily be read as created by Muslims, it seems the group—which has routinely described Muslims as “savages”—may have another agenda, as well.

“Whatever you make of the group, AFDI has been remarkably successful in bringing its message to America,” notes Michael E. Miller at The Washington Post. “AFDI has filed at least nine lawsuits across the country, often against cities or their contractors that refuse to display their messages,” which also include a depiction of Muslim leaders meeting with Adolf Hitler.

While private transit companies could reject such messages, ad space on public transportation is subject to the First Amendment. Perhaps people should rethink their support for government-run transit—not free speech—if this situation bothers them. Another way around the issue without infringing on constitutional rights would be for MTA to ban all advertisements or at least all non-commercial advertisements (something it won’t do because it needs that revenue). As long as buses and subways are government run, however, and as long as they allow political messaging of some sort, we simply can’t have city officials judging which political messages deserve broadcast and which do not.

MTA at least knew that it couldn’t make arbitrary, content-based distinctions on which political ads it would allow, which is why it tried to claim the AFDI ad goes beyond being offensive to actuallyinciting violence—an assertion Judge Koeltl wholly rejected. “The defendants contend that the advertisement could be read as urging a subset of Islamic extremists to follow Hamas’s command, but if that group is as violent and radicalized as the defendants contend, presumably they would not need a bus advertisement to remind them of Hamas’s interpretation of the Quran,” he wrote.

As to MTA’s claim that allowing the ad would run counter to public interest? “Securing First Amendment rights,” wrote Koeltl (quoting an earlier case), “is in the public interest.”

Warrantless bag searches become ubiquitous for Boston subway, bus travelers

MBTA-Boston-Checkpoints2

BOSTON, MA — Warrantless bag searches at have become commonplace at travel checkpoints in Boston as concerns for Homeland Security have overridden citizens’ right to be free of unreasonable searches.  Travelers are forced to “security inspections” of their handbags, briefcases, and other personal possessions.

Large signs indicate that public spaces under the authority of the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) are void of privacy rights.  The first bullet point on one of the signs displayed the following:

For the protection and the security of the riding public, all persons choosing to use the MBTA transit system will be subject to security inspections of their handbags, briefcases, and/or other carry on items.

The signage goes on to claim that all persons will be stopped and searched and that declining a search will result in an order to leave the station.  Those who object will be arrested and charged with trespassing — on public property — which could result in a $100 fine and up to 30 days in jail.

The Bay State Examiner published a video of one of the checkpoints, located in the Chinatown area, which was staffed by approximately half a dozen armed, badge-carrying checkpoint officers.  Individuals from a group called “Defend the 4th” [Amendment] entered the subway station and asked the officers a few questions.

When an individual asked the checkpoint sentries whether they had warrants to conduct any of the bag searches, the leader grew annoyed and insisted that searching bags was legal and had been accepted as legal by the SJC (Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts).  The officer then insisted he citizens move along or leave the station — located on public property.

Of course the courts have upheld warrantless searches in public; no one ever believed that a police state could be erected without the complicity of all three branches of government.  The courts have tolerated a constant erosion of essential rights for a long time.  The enforcers bypass critical questions about their oaths by passing off their constitutional responsibilities to another branch of government.

But we must ask, if the 4th Amendment isn’t applicable on public property, where is it applicable?

The signs and the literature explain that the checkpoints have been installed because of concerns raised by Department of Homeland Security.  Searching purses and luggage is the government’s solution to combating terrorism.

Yet isn’t the subversion of liberty exactly what a true terrorist would wish upon his enemies?  Isn’t the existence of checkpoints across the USA an indication that the “terrorists” have won?

And what effectiveness do these checkpoints have at stopping an attack?  Would any committed terrorist be imbecilic enough to walk up to a bunch of cops in yellow vests and hand over evidence that would lead to his conviction? 

Here is the video of the Boston checkpoint for “Defend the 4th”:

Christian nursery worker ‘sacked after refusing to read gay stories to children’

Sarah Mbuyi, a Christian nursery worker, is to claim she was sacked from her job due to religious discrimination, as a group backing her case says David Cameron’s defense of faith is ‘failing to play out’

bible-large-article-0

A Christian nursery worker is taking her former employers to court claiming she was sacked for her beliefs after refusing to read stories about gay couples to children.

Sarah Mbuyi says she was dismissed due to religious discrimination, having also been accused of “harassing” a lesbian colleague to whom she gave a Bible when she was recovering from an accident.

The case, lodged at an employment tribunal, comes amid growing concerns among some Christians that religious beliefs are being “outlawed” in the workplace. A Christian group backing the case says it is an example of believers being “robbed” of the freedom to express views.

Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, has warned that “militant atheists” are attempting to impose “politically correct intolerance” on others. “We’re a Christian nation,” he insisted.

Last week David Cameron said Christians should be “more evangelical” about their faith and “get out there and make a difference to people’s lives”. But the Christian Legal Centre, which is funding Miss Mbuyi’s case, said his words were “failing to play out”.

Miss Mbuyi, 30, who lives in north London, carries a Bible. She started work for Newpark Childcare, a London-based group of four nurseries, last April, before being taken on full-time in one of the schools in September.

MBUYI_2887386b

The same month a lesbian worker also joined the nursery, in Shepherd’s Bush, west London. After discovering that Miss Mbuyi was Christian she repeatedly asked her about her beliefs, the tribunal will be told.

Miss Mbuyi, now working at another nursery, will claim her colleague sought to provoke her. In December the co-worker spent time in hospital having had an accident at work and Miss Mbuyi gave her a Bible on her return.

The present, Miss Mbuyi says, was as a result of the interest she had shown in her faith. It was received well, she insists.

The following month, however, Miss Mbuyi, a Belgian national who came to Britain six years ago, says her colleague told her she had received abuse about her sexuality from religious people in the past.

During the discussion, Miss Mbuyi says she told the woman that “if I tell you that God is OK with that I am lying to you”.

At a disciplinary meeting, her employers accused Miss Mbuyi of “harassing” her co-worker, saying such behavior amounted to “gross misconduct”. The co-worker could not be reached for comment.

Her employers inquired how she would feel if she was asked to read children’s storybooks featuring same-sex parents. She replied that she would not be able to read such books.

The Christian Legal Centre has instructed Paul Diamond, a prominent religious rights barrister, to fight the case.

Andrea Williams, chief executive of the group, said: “Sharing Biblical truths out of genuine love and concern for colleagues is being outlawed in the workplace by a dominating cultural correctness. There is a culture of fear which closes down freedom of speech and the manifestation of faith. This culture brands the liberating good news of the Gospel as oppressive and regressive.

“The Christian Legal Centre is representing Sarah Mbuyi as the latest in a line of Christians who are being threatened by a movement to repress Christians from living out a genuine expression of their faith in a country which once led the world in freedom and justice.”

Boy, 13, Arrested And Charged With Felony For Throwing Snowball

Suspended from school for five days in zero tolerance madness
Instead of preventing or dealing with actual crime, a police officer in Chicago decided to arrest a thirteen year old boy and charge him with “aggravated battery to a peace officer” after he allegedly threw a snowball in the officer’s general direction.

Crime: Throwing snowballs is no longer tolerated in the new America.

According to The Chicago Times, the cop reported that the dangerous icy projectile hit him in the arm while he was sitting in a marked squad car close to the boy’s school.

The eighth grader claims, however, that he didn’t throw the snowball, and that someone else in the group of around 15 kids was the real culprit.

“It made me mad,” said the boy, who will face a felony charge in juvenile court. “He (the officer) said the snowball hit him but it hit the car, not him.” the boy added.

“He kept trying to tell the officer that he didn’t do it but they didn’t believe him,” the boy’s mother said. “He was standing on the corner, there was a whole crowd of kids. It’s so crazy.”

“It’s sad, he’s only 13. I’m so upset, he’s never been in trouble before,” the mother added. “It’s his first case.”

In addition to being arrested, the boy has also been suspended from school for five days, under zero tolerance rules. The incident may be marked on his permanent record.

The report notes that the boy was singled out by his school’s dean and a nearby security guard. Neither would give any comment.

Some local residents are appalled at the ridiculous police action and have called for the charges to be dropped.

“I think that’s ridiculous — it’s such a big charge,” said Latanya Powell, a construction worker on the block where the incident occurred. “It’s just going overboard. I can see if it were a weapon and harm was done, but it was just a snowball. This is a case of kids being kids.”

Yet others are advocating making an example of the boy. “If [the boy] had gotten away with it, who’s to say what they’d do next? If it doesn’t stick to them now, they’ll be 16 or 17, and they’ll have a gun,” said Ray Fields, an educator and resident.

“If we as parents and educators don’t teach them right from wrong, then what are we teaching them?” Fields added.

The boy is lucky to have gotten away with a simple arrest, if previous cases of this kind of heinous crime are anything to go by. In a New York case settled earlier this month, five teenage boys were rewarded hundreds of thousands of dollars after a cop pulled his gun on them for throwing a snowball at him, before arresting and charging them.

SWAT team took over innocent woman’s house without permission to investigate neighbor

JACKSONVILLE, FL — A woman says a SWAT team kicked her out of her home and then helped themselves inside to gain a “tactical advantage” over a neighbor who was under investigation.

Deborah Franz was told to leave her home on Sunday, February 2nd, when there was a domestic disturbance in the mobile home across the street.  A neighbor had allegedly gotten physical with his father and displayed a handgun.  The reaction was a paramilitary force cordoning off the block and forcibly evacuating neighboring homes for the rest of the day.

Deborah Franz says she was violated when SWAT invaded her home.  (Source: W>WTEV)

“The cop goes ‘You all need to leave, you can’t be in your house,’” Franz told WTEV.

Franz left for 6 hours while police blockaded the street.  Little did she know that controlling the scene meant taking over homes not involved with the investigation.

When she returned, she says she “froze” when she opened her door and her belongings had been obviously tampered with.  Her television had been moved and her Xbox game console disconnected.  Window drapes had been pulled to the floor.

Franz believed she had been victim to a home invasion.  Then it dawned on her that the home invaders were working for the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

The SWAT team had broken into her home to obtain a tactical advantage against the suspect next door.  Franz wasn’t even so much as notified of the entry.

Her complaint to the department drew only a press release promising police would review their own actions to make sure that they were “legally sound” and performed “in the best interest of the safety” of police and the community.  It would not be the first time that officer safety has been trumpeted as an excuse for infringing citizens’ rights.

SWAT spent hours holding its standoff, bringing in heavy machinery resembling a forklift, and threatening the suspect over loudspeakers.  Embarrassingly, it turned out that the house they were focused on had been empty the whole time.  When SWAT crashed in after 5 hours, the suspect, Michael K. Farrell, had already left.  The siege of Glen Gardener Drive had not stopped the suspect from leaving.

A similar case of police commandeering multiple homes of innocent people took place last year in Nevada.  The families involved sued the department for violating the 3rd Amendment.  No update has been made available on the case.

It does not bode well that the police can operate outside the law when it suits their tactical advantages and safety objectives.  Is there an exemption for police officers in the breaking and entering laws in Florida?  Does the 3rd Amendment apply to police seizing homes?

Has the 4th amendment been changed to read:  “The right of the people to be secure in their houses against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated — unless it gives the government a tactical advantage”?

Accountability Check

You’re under arrest and we’ll need your DNA

DNA_Arrest

So says Pennsylvania bill that may help solve crimes faster. Foes say it threatens civil rights.

Taking DNA samples from people charged with but not yet convicted of serious crimes would give police and prosecutors a powerful new tool to solve crimes faster and even prevent others from happening.

But a proposal to expand Pennsylvania’s collection of genetic identification has drawn fire from criminal defense lawyers and the American Civil Liberties Union, who say it threatens the principle that a person charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty.

Furthermore, opponents argue, the collection of evidence without a warrant and invasion of privacy inherent in taking a person’s genetic material damage everyone’s civil rights.

“The government can’t snatch your medical records without judicial intervention; they shouldn’t be able to snatch your biology without judicial intervention,” Easton criminal defense attorney Gary Asteak said.

State police say DNA collection is a useful tool, but that they can’t support the proposed expansion because state lawmakers have not provided funding to do it. They also question whether the increased cost of a broader approach would pay off. A bill in the Legislature would cost the state police $27 million to hire additional technicians and build a new laboratory, a state police spokesman said.

Under existing state law, offenders convicted of felonies and certain misdemeanors must give DNA samples for inclusion in state and federal identification databases.

“DNA is a great tool to identify the people who commit crimes and it can exonerate people who haven’t committed crimes,” said Greg Rowe, a prosecutor in the Philadelphia district attorney’s office who handles legislative affairs for the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association.

A bill passed by the state House Judiciary Committee last week would extend the requirement to people who are charged with serious crimes — including homicide, sex offenses and indecent assault — after a district judge rules there’s enough evidence for the case to go to trial.

The bill would add several felonies that trigger the DNA identification requirement on conviction, including selling infants and concealing the death of a child and unlawful restraint. It expands the DNA sample requirement at conviction to people charged with misdemeanors that require registration as a sex offender.

It expands the range of crimes that trigger the DNA sample requirement upon conviction to less-serious offenses, including simple assault and criminal trespassing. The bill also would allow police to search the database for genetic profiles of close relatives to people whose DNA is found at a crime.

Expanding the pool of people subject to DNA identification would help police link suspects to unsolved crimes and keep violent serial criminals off the streets, Rowe said.

Thomas Dymeck, an attorney for the House Judiciary Committee, compared the expansion of DNA identification at arrest to fingerprinting, which has been part of the booking process for decades.

“It is a perfect fingerprint,” he said of the genetic material used to identify criminals. “That’s all this bill is. It’s bringing arrestee identification into the 21st century.”

State police officials, however, warned that the benefit of expanded DNA identification might not be worth the significant cost and increase in workload that it brings. In a House Judiciary Committee hearing last month, state police Lt. Col. Scott Snyder warned that without dedicated funding, the expansion would bring an unending struggle to pay for the requirement.

Although offenders and outside agencies must pay for DNA analysis performed by the state police, the reimbursement rate is 40 percent or lower, Snyder testified.

And the state police say the value of collecting DNA from suspects may be overstated, since the benefit depends on the ability to quickly process the sample and add it to the database. Snyder added that the removal of up to 75 percent of arrestee DNA samples from the database through acquittals or as a result of plea deals would further dilute the benefit of taking DNA upon arrest.

If DNA identification in Pennsylvania is to be expanded, law enforcement would see the greatest benefit if offenders must provide a sample upon arrest for less serious crimes like theft, which often show up early on the rap sheets of people who go on to commit violent felonies, Snyder said.

The legislation, Senate Bill 150, was sponsored in the Senate by Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi of Delaware County. Locally, Sens. Lisa Boscola, D-Northampton, and Pat Browne, R-Lehigh, are among the sponsors. There are no sponsors in the House.

Steve Miskin, spokesman for the House Republicans, said he didn’t think the bill would come up for a vote in December. Some members have raised concerns over privacy issues and other matters, he said.

“It just needs a little more work, but we believe it might be doable,” he said.

Arkansas: More Creeping Sharia In Public Schools; Teacher Attempts To Sneak Muslim Speaker To Class On 9/11

sharia-law

Liberal Academia pushing Islam on the children. In case you missed this one, there was a report at JihadWatch and numerous other sources that a Boston school (Concord-Carlisle High) replaced the Pledge of Allegiance with a Muslim poem on the anniversary of 9/11.

Now if that isn’t infuriating enough, there is another report out of Arkansas in which a school attempted to sneak in a Muslim speaker to proselytize on the 9/11 anniversary.

Parents weren’t told and Liberal media was surprised that parents would have a problem with this. Notice in the video report below, how the media managed to find the one parent and one student to push the “diversity” meme. Interestingly, the school canceled it due to a multitude of outrage, yet the media was at a loss to find at least one parent to represent the opposing opinion voice?

Hat Tip to RightScoop and CreepingSharia who reports the following:

Again, note the sneaky manner in which a teacher invites a Muslim to proselytize impressionable young kids ON 9/11! Without even telling the parents! And note how the media focus on those who sympathize with Muslims.

Contrary to the grandmother’s opinion, she should preach her understanding meme to Muslims and see how that works out.

It was only 30-some miles away in 2009 that another Muslim waged jihad in Little Rock, Arkansas shooting up an Army recruiting base killing one and wounding another. The Sister of professed jihadi says he changed after converting to Islam. Another foreign-funded Muslim group in Little Rock was planning a Muslim-only enclave in the area back in 2006. But we should just understand them and let them preach to our children?

So who was the Muslim speaker? What Islamic group(s) is he a member of? What mosque does he attend? Has the school vetted him and his level of adherence to sharia law? Is he part of the separatist group mentioned above?

Despite the cancellation, it appears only temporary. That’s right, the Muslim dawah has been RESCHEDULED.
