Gen. Boykin is a highly decorated veteran- a Patriot American. The sort of American citizen that Obama and his minions detest. You see, he was trained to understand, identify and disrupt Marxism. The far left, including our current President and his appointee’s and many of his supporters, share a contempt for America and are using every Alinsky Radical tactic to overthrow our Republic, substituting the despotism of Marxistm. Get a backbone and fight the Marxists who openly threaten your family and generations to follow.
The Stunning Contrast between Tea Party and ‘Occupy’ Protestors
The media love to portray members of the Tea Party movement as out-of-touch hicks who are racist and only care about themselves. News outlets tried so hard to find something bad to report at Tea Party rallies, but try as they might, they couldn’t. Contrast this with the filth, crime, and vulgarities that often accompany ‘Occupy’ protests, and one wonders where all the news coverage is.
Check out this post from The Blaze in which they report on the hundreds of Occupy Oakland protestors who were arrested when they clashed with police officers.
Police Sgt. Christopher Bolton said the arrests came after protesters marched through downtown Oakland a little before 8 p.m. Saturday, with some of them entering a YMCA building.
At different moments on the livestream video, protestors could be heard yelling “Kill the police” and “F**k the police.”
The Christian Science Monitor reports that 300 protestors were arrested following incidents in which “Occupy Oakland demonstrators broke into the historic building and burned a U.S. flag.”
Saturday’s protests – the most turbulent since Oakland police forcefully dismantled an Occupy encampment in November – came just days after the group said it planned to use a vacant building as a social center and political hub and threatened to try to shut down the port, occupy the airport and take over City Hall.
An exasperated Mayor Jean Quan, who faced heavy criticism for the police action last fall, called on the Occupy movement to “stop using Oakland as its playground.”
It’s amazing how these protestors are portrayed and how the media tries to spin them as some kind of freedom fighters. Just look at the story at CNN.com. First, the opening paragraph has this line: “the culmination of protests Saturday that saw police and protesters trade allegations over who was responsible for clashes.” By writing it in this way, the attempt is made to put the “Occupy” protestors on equal footing with law enforcement. There’s a clash. There are allegations. Maybe the police are right; maybe the protestors are right. That’s how they spin it.
Then, the very next paragraph reads: “Undeterred, the protesters — who remained on the street early Sunday morning — said they will forge ahead with a planned “Rise Up Festival” at an area park later in the day.”
Undeterred? As if the police were somehow the ones in the way of progress??? Come on! And, of course, the protestors will “forge ahead” with even more protests. The bias is just so blatant.
At least the local video report on the CNN site appears more balanced:
The “Occupy” protestors need to go home and grow up. “People not profit” might be a good slogan, but without business making money, there are NO jobs! These people should take a good look at the Tea Party movement and see what can happen through the power of a strong message and peaceful demonstrations.
From “The Loft”.. Any rational observer, with a thimbleful of discernment, can determine that the “occupy” squatters/social misfits embrace the old, familiar tactics of Marxism, Alinsky, and Obama supported self destruction. The Occupy movement is an good example of the hate filled, destructive core “values” that define this small group of rabble that should be held to account for their willful and increasingly hateful personal assaults, abuse of personal and public property, and flagrant disregard for respect for honest and reasoned debate. Because they cannot win the war of ideas, mobs like this resort to violence, anti social behavior of all kinds and complete disrespect for rational dialogue. It’s time we end this menace. While Obama is in office, this sort of radical, coordinated domestic terror will be encouraged and supported by the Eric Hoder/Obama “Marxist change machine”..
Angry federal judge rips ‘false testimony’ of federal scientistsA tough federal judge in Sacramento has become a folk hero of Central California citizens for protecting people and endangered species instead of putting the interests of either over the other.
In the process, U.S. District Judge Oliver Wanger made two huge splashes last week in what began as a water-supply war a decade ago, then grew into a convoluted endangered-fish war.
Today, it’s a gigantic good science versus bad science war pitting California residents against a tiny fish and government officials diverting two years’ worth of water for a large city or agricultural region and flushing it into the San Francisco Bay.
The flushing might help save the allegedly endangered 2-inch-long fish, the delta smelt.
So many lawsuits sparked by the conflict have landed on Wanger’s desk, with so many plaintiffs and so many defendants, that he merged them into one and titled his rulings “The Consolidated [salmonid, delta smelt, or whatever] Cases.”
In a searing opinion, Wanger ripped two Interior Department scientists for giving “false” and “incredible” testimony to support a “bad faith” delta smelt preservation plan.
The two scientists are Frederick V. Feyrer of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and Jennifer M. Norris of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Wanger also threw out huge chunks of the federal government’s official “biological opinion” on five different species, calling the opinion, which is a guidance document for environmental regulators, “arbitrary, capricious, and unlawful.”
Wanger has become a hero to millions of Californians thanks to his strict interpretation of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969.
Section 1 of NEPA establishes policy. Section 2 describes penalties. Environmentalists focus solely on the latter, while ignoring the former, even though both are federal law.
Wanger says “the public policy underlying NEPA favors protecting the balance between humans and the environment,” by, according to the first purpose listed in the statute, establishing “a national policy which will encourage productive and enjoyable harmony between man and his environment.”
Environmentalists worship NEPA as “the environment’s bill of rights” and focus almost entirely on the penalties it provides, while Wanger looks at the whole law.
In an earlier decision, for example, he excoriated the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Agency for its to-hell-with-people policy:
“Federal defendants completely abdicated their responsibility to consider reasonable alternatives that would not only protect the species, but would also minimize the adverse impact on humans and the human environment.”
Craig Manson, general counsel of the vast Westlands Water District (and a former assistant secretary of the interior for fish and wildlife and parks), said of Wanger’s ruling on the government’s biological opinion:
“The court is again calling for sound science. The people who depend on water supplied by these projects, are entitled to the government’s best efforts supported by the best available science. The recent rulings by the court give us the best opportunity in a decade or more to make real NEPA’s policy of harmony between humans and their environment.”
Brandon Middleton, a Pacific Legal Foundation attorney, said, “The court’s willingness to recognize NEPA’s policy of ‘protecting the balance between humans and the environment’ is refreshing. For decades, environmental groups have attempted to impose their viewpoint without any consideration for the human impacts of ‘environmentalism at all costs.’ “
After reading Wanger’s opinion, Feyrer and Norris may need to consider new careers.
In a court transcript of last week’s decision obtained by The Washington Examiner, Wanger wrote of Norris: “I find her testimony to be that of a zealot. … The suggestion by Dr. Norris that the failure to implement [her plan], that that’s going to end the delta smelt’s existence on the face of our planet is false, it is outrageous, it is contradicted by her own testimony.”
Feyrer got worse — a ruling of “agency bad faith.”
Isn’t that a firing offense, even for a career civil servant? I asked Julie McDonald, former deputy assistant secretary of interior for fish and wildlife and parks.
“No, they don’t get fired, they get promoted,” McDonald said, citing the power of the federal “science cartel” to protect its rule over America’s environmental regulations from people like Wanger.
Wanger, who has announced his retirement, has cut a larger-than-life figure ever since he was nominated for the federal bench in 1991 by President George H.W. Bush.
He’s been called colorful, but I think red white and blue are the colors that fit him best.

I thought most everyone in California had gone mad. Finally, a federal judge proclaims the obvious.. their is a massively corrupt system being foisted on America.. from within. We must elect people who yearn for Truth, Good Faith decision making, and who do NOT have this radical “Earth First” ideology that is determined to destroy our way of life today, and for future generations.
