New, unedited video of Unions’ assault on Steven Crowder. Will we see this on the Nightly Newscasts NOW?

Remember the “Peaceful Unions” who demonstrated their peace-loving peacefulness up in Michigan by cracking a political opponent in the face?


Do you also recall NOT seeing this reported on the Nightly News?

Well, that’s ’cause the Media had to come up with some reason to not air it, since it made their side (Liberal Democrat cronies, aka Unions) look bad.

Ed over at Hotair says it perfectly:

Run and Hide

If our Federal Government would just take a day off from trying to run &/or ruin our lives, that would make me deliriously happy.

Courtesy of the Examiner.com:

U.S. Border Patrol Agents, along with others under the authority of the DHS and President Obama, are being told to “run and hide” if they encounter a shooter like the one Democratic Rep Gabrielle Giffords did, according to Fox News.  Federal law enforcement officers are never supposed to run and hide instead of fight and defend. So why is that now happening under the Obama administration through this new training video?

Police are never supposed to leave victims to their own devices in crisis situations. They are always supposed to risk life and limb to protect others. That’s even part of the pledge they take when sworn into duty: that they will defend the innocent and helpless.

Yet the latest DHS computer course, known as “IS-907-Active Shooter: What You Can Do”, is telling all federal employees (not just the civilians) that if they encounter workplace violence, like the gunmen who shot Rep. Giffords, that they are to evacuate, hide out—and as a very, very, last resort, ….maybe take action.

Border Patrol Agents definitely face the possibility of workplace violence guarding the U.S. borders. So telling them to evacuate where they are supposed to be protecting is like asking them not to bother doing their job.

Both FOX NEWS and Breitbart.com mention the disconnect between who exactly this training is for. The DHS is not exactly clearing up the confusion, either.

DHS officials maintain that the Active Shooter course was designed for all  employees—civilian and law-enforcement officers— and no one should rush into a  situation where they, or others around them, could get hurt.

I did some digging around on the web and managed to locate the online version of the training HERE.

And on the main page it does mention that it is intended for non-law enforcement employees. Still, if it were that cut-and-dry, the border patrol union wouldn’t still be raising a stink about it since June 20th, and/or the Feds would have responded clearly by now. Something doesn’t make sense.

We just might get some answers sooner than later, since this news caught the eye of Sandy Adams, Representative from Florida’s 24th District. Adams has already has sent a letter to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, requesting clarification. Judging from Napolitano’s history, of course, I’m not exactly holding my breath while I wait.


Actually, my biggest beef is with the training itself. I’ve had to get through hours and hours of company sponsored, computer-administered training during many years in a Fortune 100 company. And this is pretty pathetic, even by comparison.  As a matter of fact, some parts of it are contradictory and outright dumb. For instance, check out this section on “how/where to hide”:

Your hiding place should:

  • Be out of the active shooter’s view.
  • Provide  protection if shots are fired in your direction (i.e., an office with a closed  and locked door).
  • Not trap you or restrict your options for movement.

To prevent an active shooter from entering your hiding place:

  • Lock  the door.
  • Blockade the door with heavy furniture.
  • Close, cover, and move away from windows.


So, somehow I’m supposed to find a place that I can barricade myself in, and yet be somewhere that doesn’t “trap” me? Huh? Where exactly would that be? In almost every office I know, the majority of rooms and offices have only one door, with the possible exception of the cafeteria.

(Hey, I think I just thought of a new regulation for FEMA to mandate! Yay, me!!)


I downloaded the test, too. It’s even worse than the training. My own standard for that determination is: if I can skip the training and STILL get 100% on the exam, ….both the test and the training are totally unnecessary.

Judge for yourself. Here’s an actual question from the test:

12. After an active shooter incident is over, human resources and/or management should analyze the lessons learned and:

a. Hold a press conference to describe how the organization handled the crisis and recognize law enforcement’s exemplary response efforts.

b. Identify the shooter’s mental health problems to exonerate the organization of any wrongdoing.

c. Require future potential employees to undergo mandatory psychological testing, to screen out anyone with mental health issues.

d. Develop an after-action report that describes how the Emergency Action Plan worked and how it might be improved.

Seriously? Someone got paid to write this? Glad to see brain-dead, bureaucratic CYA training is alive and well in the Federal Government.


For what it’s worth: If I was in management at one of these locations, the very first item I’d cover as part of MY preparation is noticeably absent from the existing training: I’d want to know how many people have a concealed carry permit, and if they regularly carry.

‘Cause personally, I’m guessin’ most folks would feel a whole lot safer “hiding” in THOSE people’s offices, if-you-know-what-I-mean.

Nothing to see here. Move along…

I really had no intention of writing anything else today, but I kinda/sorta promised I would address this as soon as possible.

Earlier this week, while we were highlighting the overt media disparity between the Tea Party and the Occupy crew (It’s the Tea Party… Run For Your Lives!), commenter ‘a2buckeye‘ pointed out that the 5 men who were arrested for planning to blow up a bridge were likely associated with Occupy Cleveland. I deliberately skipped including it in my list of Occupy violence since enough facts weren’t yet known as to their Occupy kinship.

Well, more facts have come to light, and ‘a2buckeyewas spot-on.

From Jim Treacher’s blog:

The federal probe that resulted last night in the arrest of five  purported anarchists for allegedly plotting to bomb an Ohio bridge began last  year at an Occupy Wall Street rally in Cleveland that was infiltrated by an  informant who was directed to attend the event by his FBI handlers.

It was at the October 21 OWS event that the informant first met Douglas  [“Cyco”] Wright, 26, who reportedly confided details of his group’s planned  attacks “against corporate America and the financial system,” according to court  filings…

Wright eventually served as the informant’s bridge to the four other men  busted in the bombing plot–despite the fact that the quartet was “unsure” about  the snitch for whom Wright vouched. Of the five men arrested, four were involved  in the Occupy Cleveland movement, according to their Facebook profiles, a news  story, and a federal criminal complaint.

Predictably, Occupy Cleveland has tried to distance themselves from these cretins. Good luck with that. Jim Treacher points out the obvious connections, including:

“…..how did Brandon “Skabby” Baxter spend his time when he wasn’t plotting to murder people? He was organizing an Occupy rally. Last weekend.”

Make sure you read his whole post (complete with video), which will be, …uh, …’problematic” for Occupy Cleveland to dispute.

Gotta love those lil’ Occupy darlings. They’re so cute at that age.

It’s the Tea Party…. Run for your lives!

I can’t believe they’re still at this.

The Democrats have a curious obsession with comparing the Tea Party to terrorists. This happened with stunning consistency for the past two years, especially during the 2011 Debt Ceiling debates. Even Vice President Joe “Foot-In-Mouth” Biden did it, as did Bill Clinton. It happened over, and over again.

Why? Because the Tea Party wants our country’s government to spend within our means? If you want to disagree, that’s fine. But calling that terrorism? I just don’t get it.

And now …….it’s happened again, this time in Oklahoma City, of all places.

From news9.com:

OKLAHOMA CITY -The chairman of the Oklahoma Democratic Party is refusing to back down from comments he made likening convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh to tea party activists.

   Chairman Wallace Collins on Tuesday described McVeigh as an anti-government “right-winger” and said he sees tea party activists in a “similar vein.” He previously told a Fox News reporter that if McVeigh were alive today, he would likely be a member of the tea party.

Oh, good grief.

As Bernie Goldberg said, this is coming from “….people who don’t call real terrorists ‘terrorists’ ”.

Have they still never SEEN a Tea Party?

Michael Graham, a radio talk-show host in Boston, wrote a book in 2010 titled That’s No Angry Mob, That’s My Mom. In it, Graham discussed various Tea Parties and their motivation: ordinary tax-payers pushed into action by the threat of higher taxes and increased government intrusion. Far removed from anyone’s definition of ‘terrorist’, these are non-violent, respectful, patriotic Joe & Jane Six-packs who want their government to not bankrupt the country.

Yep, they’re terrifying.


Now, if it’s violence and various other illegalities that Chairman Wallace Collins (or anyone else) is looking for, there actually IS a movement that fits the bill, though the media is loath to describe them as such. Have you ever heard of the Occupy Wall Street kids?

It appears that these playful little scamps have run afoul of the law a time or three. The entire list is waaaaay too long to include here, so I’ll just borrow a partial one from verumserum.com as of mid-November last year:




  • Occupy Boston – Two drug busts in a week
  • Occupy Boston – Another drug arrest
  • Occupy Boston – Heroin dealers busted were living with 6-year-old boy directly behind welcome tent
  • Occupy Portland – First hand account “Drugs. Selling…Heroin. Meth.”
  • Occupy Portland – Video of open drug use in the camp
  • Occupy Portland – “I get high




Public disturbance

Rape/Sexual Assault


  • Occupy DC – Let’s have a coup by taking over the military
  • Ted Rall wants occupiers to choose the path of violence
  • Occupy DC – Mike Malloy incites crowd to cheer for President Bush’s execution



  • Occupy Portland – Theft is ongoing
  • Occupy Boston – Store owner suffers 4 break-ins since camp began


Remember: this is an old list. There’ve been plenty more “indiscretions” since, most recently on May 1st of this year:

Dozens arrested during May Day protests across U.S.


Next time you hear someone painting the Tea Party as some amalgamation of horror-movie monster-meets-Hezbollah-member, keep in mind that actual Tea Partiers look like this:

And those harmless, loveable imps in Occupy Wall Street look like this:
