Narco-Tyranny in a Tiny Town: Covington, Texas Police Chief Arrested; Residents “Scared to Death” of Police Retaliation

Covington Police Chief Wade Laurence
A Republic Magazine exclusive
UPDATE, March 10: Chief Laurence was fired by the Covington City Council during its March 9 meeting.

Wade Laurence, Chief of Police in a minuscule town called Covington, Texas, has been arrested by the Texas Rangers and charged with using a fraudulent prescription to obtain controlled substances, a third degree felony. With the Chief free on $20,000 bail, the City Council is planning to meet this evening (March 9), reportedly to consider disbanding the police force. Under Wade’s direction, the Covington PD has carried out what some residents of the town — including former members of the police force — describe as something akin to a reign of terror. In addition to fraudulently procuring prescription medications, Laurence has been accused of involvement in dealing drugs to local schoolchildren and illegal diversion of confiscated marijuana.
“They are scared to death now,” says City Council member Martha Smith. “They lock their doors, they lock their car doors because they are scared of the police.”
A report filed with the Texas Rangers by Officer Kayla Richardson (who provided a copy to Republic) describes how Wade

Building Permit!

I recently applied for a building permit for a new house.
It was going to be 100 ft tall and 400 ft wide, with 9 gun turrets at various heights, and windows all over the place and a loud outside entertainment sound system.
It would have parking for 200 cars, and I was going to paint it snot green with pink trim.

The City Council told me; Forget it...AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN!

So I sent in the application again, but this time I called it a 'Mosque'.

Work starts on Monday.

I love this country. It's the Government I'm afraid of..

The island is Iwo Jima, two words that make anyone who knows anything about World War II shudder. Flamethrowers and swords and hand-to-hand combat in the middle of the night.
Mike Mervosh once spent more than a month on an island in the Pacific Ocean. Relaxing, it wasn’t. War never is.
“It was kill or be killed,” Mervosh said. Of the 240 men in his rifle company, only 31 survived the battle, and most, like him, were wounded. He saw buddies decapitated, blown in half, shot in the head and their brains spattered on his shirt sleeve.
Makes you wonder why he’d ever want to go back.
The Oceanside resident is scheduled to arrive Wednesday, part of a Denver-based program that returns vets to their battlefields, to the places that shaped them when they were young and haunt them now that they’re old. For some, the defining moments of their lives happened there.
All expenses are paid by The Greatest Generations Foundation, but that doesn’t mean the trip is free. Not all the baggage they bring is hand-carried.
Some of the veterans go for closure, to reflect on how the person they were then became the person they are now. They go for camaraderie, to bond again with the dwindling ranks of those who fought alongside them. And they go to say thank you.
Thank you to those who lost their lives, and thank you to whatever it was that enabled them to keep theirs.
After the war, Mervosh stayed in the Marine Corps for 32 more years, retiring in 1977 as a sergeant major and the most senior enlisted member in all the armed forces. He fought in three wars, earned a Navy Commendation Medal for heroism in each of them. He has three Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star.
Everybody calls him Iron Mike. He has club rooms named after him at Marine bases on both coasts. At age 88, he still works out three times a week, can still fit into his dress uniform, still hands out business cards with his picture on them and this underneath: “Keep on Chargin’.”
Ask Mervosh if he expects to get emotional on Iwo Jima and he says no. “I don’t usually react that way,” he said.
Except the first thing he wants to do when he gets there is head to Blue Beach 2, where Charlie Company came ashore on Feb. 19, 1945, en route to fighting for 36 straight days.
“I’ll tell you what,” he said. “I’m going to kneel down and say a prayer.”

Sharing stories

John Riedy is headed to Iwo, too. The Carlsbad photographer has been on 10 of these battlefield trips, volunteering his time and talent to capture the moments when the veterans come face to face with their past.
He takes portraits of them that he’s honored to know might one day be used at their funerals.
“Some of the hardest, most blustery guys when we’re on the way break down the most when we get there,” he said. “The sights and sounds just overwhelm them.”

A wedding photographer by trade, Riedy got involved with the program through a friend he played softball with. At first he saw it as a great experience, a chance to visit places such as Pearl Harbor, the beaches at Normandy, and Belgium, where the Battle of the Bulge was fought.

Georgia Law Not Enforced Against the Powerful
Letter received at Free Zone Media


It’s official: the corruption goes all the way to the top of the Georgia judicial branch. This week the Georgia Supreme Court denied our motion for an emergency injunction to delay the certification of the Georgia Democratic Presidential primary election results. Yesterday the Georgia Secretary of State certified Obama as the winner of that election.
There’s an old saying in law: reasonable minds can differ on almost any argument. Our motion for injunction was an exception to the rule. No reasonable, unbiased person would have denied this motion. We were asking for something that wouldn’t have harmed the defendant in any way. Delaying certification of the primary election results for a few weeks would not have changed the outcome of the election and would not have cost a dime. When granting an injunction will harm no one, and denying the motion will arguably destroy the Constitution, what possible reason could be given for denying the motion? Apparently the answer for the Georgia Supreme Court is: None.
The order denying our motion was one sentence:
“Upon consideration of Applicant’s ‘Emergency Motion for Preliminary Injunction,’ the motion is hereby DENIED.”
You can see the order on our website. Such one-sentence orders are not unheard of. However, in this case issuing a one-sentence denial reflects an unbelievable level of disregard for the importance of this motion. Add to that the fact that a denial is completely unsupportable considering the relief requested, and you can see why this ruling is so appalling. Essentially the Georgia Supreme Court said: We deny your request for relief that would have harmed no one, and we have so much contempt for your request that we’re not going to bother explaining our shocking ruling.
The Court also waited to rule until an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court was impossible. Liberty Legal Foundation filed our emergency motion seven days before the Georgia Court ruled. As you can see from our filings on our website we gave the Georgia Court all the information it needed, including the lack of harm that would result from granting our motion. Both LLF and Georgia Representative Mark Hatfield pointed out to the Court the date on which the Secretary of State planned to certify the election. Yet the Court sat on our filings for seven days, then ruled on the day certification had been planned.
If we had been given one or two days we could have filed an emergency motion with the U.S. Supreme Court. Currently the Justice assigned to review such motions from Georgia is the most Constitutional originalist, Justice Clarence Thomas. I’m sure that the Georgia Supreme Court is aware that Justice Thomas would have been our next step, had we had time to file another motion. The Georgia Court ensured that such review was not possible by waiting until the last day to rule before our motion became moot. It is possible that this timing was nothing more than a busy court not being able to rule faster, but after what we have seen in Georgia, do you believe that? Even if that is true, what does it say about this Court’s level of respect for the importance of this case? The Court didn't even bother to spell our client's name correctly!
I believe that this latest ruling proves that Georgia law does not apply to the powerful. Put another way, Georgia laws are enforced against the powerless by the powerful, but when the powerless try to have the laws applied to the powerful the courts protect the powerful. This is worse than anarchy. With total anarchy everyone knows that the powerful rule. With anarchy everyone understands that the only rules are the rules that the powerful want to enforce, when the powerful want to enforce them. What we have in Georgia is a system of laws and courts that appear to be fair and claim to be impartial, but in reality the purpose of the laws and courts is to deceive the people into thinking that justice is possible. The laws and courts are a sham. The courts serve to disguise the one-sided enforcement of the law.
Liberty Legal Foundation will continue to fight this case. The Georgia Supreme Court denied our injunction, but it has not ruled on our underlying case. When it dismisses our case we will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. We are also still fighting the eligibility issue in Tennessee and Arizona. I’ll update you on those cases, our Obamacare case that is ongoing separate from the upcoming Supreme Court hearings, and the threats against us soon. Please continue to support our efforts.
In Liberty,
Van Irion, Founder

Rachel Maddow totally unprepared for Sen James Inhofe and Get's A** K******

Posted by BH
By Kevin DeAnna
WASHINGTON – It had to be an embarrassing moment for MSNBC host Rachel Maddow – who didn’t do quite enough homework before interviewing Sen. James Inhofe about his new book about climate change alarmism, “The Greatest Hoax.”
During a pre-recorded, 30-minute segment airing last night, Maddow revealed that she doesn’t read guests’ books very carefully – and apparently doesn’t even pay much attention to her own TV show.
Maddow grilled the senator about allegedly taking her words out of context when he cited her Dec. 3, 2009, program in his book.
Referring to a section of “The Greatest Hoax” in which Inhofe takes Maddow to task for having attacked his positions on climate change, Maddow claimed last night that the 2009 show in question was actually about Inhofe’s supposed efforts in support of anti-homosexual policies in Uganda.
2009 Winter TCA Tour - Day 9However, in her enthusiasm to nail Inhofe over the Uganda segment, which mentioned Inhofe among other officials, Maddow completely neglected a separate, lengthy segment on that same day’s show that attacked Inhofe over his positions on climate change.
That was the segment Inhofe clearly cited in “The Greatest Hoax,” which Maddow claimed to have read, even excerpting the exact dialogue from that night’s show. A video and a transcript of the 2009 show are still available.
Nevertheless, during last night’s interview with Inhofe, Maddow completely neglected the segment in which she criticized Inhofe’s views on climate change and instead returned to her preferred line of attack regarding homosexuality in Africa.
Thus, instead of a discussion – as advertised – on global warming and his new book, viewers were treated to a lengthy digression on proposed sexual-morality legislation in Uganda.
Maddow even suggested that Inhofe might be supportive of executing homosexuals, asking him if he was for or against a “kill-the-gays bill.”
Her mistake probably would have been edited from a taped interview. However, after being bumped from his scheduled appearance last Tuesday, Inhofe secured a promise that his segment would be broadcast unedited and uncut, before he would agree to appear.
As a result, Maddow’s big mistake made it on the air.

How to Rein In Rogue Prosecutors.from the Wall Street Journal

Posted by BH




On Thursday, a special prosecutor released his report on the botched prosecution on corruption charges of the late Sen. Ted Stevens. It's worth noting the lessons learned from this investigation. Otherwise, wrongful convictions will continue.
The special prosecutor, Henry Schuelke, found that Justice Department lawyers committed ethics violations by the deliberate and "systematic" withholding of critical evidence pointing to Stevens's innocence, but he declined to go further. The reason: There was no court order expressly directing the government lawyers to turn over the evidence. Criminal charges can only be brought when there is a knowing and intentional violation of an order.
In sharp contrast, on Friday, Feb. 17, the chief judge of the Texas Supreme Court convened a court of inquiry to determine whether the former Williamson County district attorney violated state laws by failing to turn over evidence that could have prevented Michael Morton from spending 25 years in prison after his 1987 conviction for a murder that DNA evidence now proves he didn't commit.
The judge in the Morton case could deal directly with the prosecutor's alleged misconduct while the judge in the Stevens case could not. The Texas prosecutor had been expressly ordered by the trial court to turn over the lead investigator's complete report, an order that made certain all exculpatory evidence would be disclosed. The obligations of the Stevens prosecutors, while based on the Constitution and the disciplinary rules of the profession, were not formally embodied in a court order.
The two cases present a simple solution

DOJ seeks to ensure illegal aliens get federal housing

Posted by BH

| March 16, 2012
In a case that legal experts say defies logic and common sense, in order to ensure that low-income minorities get taxpayer-subsidized housing, Obama...
With so many white, black and Latino citizens on waiting lists for public housing, the Obama DOJ is pushing to house illegal aliens, say critics. In a case that legal experts say defies logic and common sense, in order to ensure that low-income minorities get taxpayer-subsidized housing, Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) has launched a nationwide discrimination probe that, ironically, is focusing on an area where the overwhelming number of public housing residents are Latino and black. 

The investigations are being conducted by the DOJ’s  civil rights division, which is headed by renowned  illegal immigration advocate Thomas Perez, who once served as president of a taxpayer-funded group (Casa de Maryland) dedicated to helping illegal aliens, according to a public-interest law firm.  
A former Maryland Labor Secretary, Assistant Attorney General Perez has made a number of controversial moves at the DOJ to protect illegal immigrants and minorities in general. Most famous is his dismissal of charges against the New Black Panther Party who were "accused" of voter intimidation of whites, according to public interest groups such as Judicial Watch and the National Legal and Policy Center.

Among controversial moves is his ordering Colorado to protect the interests of “language minority populations,” suing a public college system for discrimination over a requirement that job applicants furnish proof of residency to get hired and launching an initiative to kill written tests that Perez asserts discriminate against minorities in the workplace.
"Perez doesn't care if these workers can speak, read and write English. In his world, as long as they are living and breathing they're qualified to work at institutions of higher learning," said former New York Detective Ben Cardoza
This month the DOJ’s pro-minority act du jour focuses on two cities -- Lancaster and Palmdale -- in Los Angeles County known as the Antelope Valley. Perez claims they discriminate against blacks and Latinos when it comes to providing federally-subsidized housing known as Section 8, even though 86% of the Section 8 recipients in both cities are minorities, according to the county commissioner Michael Antonovich who represents the area.  
Antonovich accused Perez, who flew into the Antelope Valley a few days ago to formally announce the probe, of grandstanding.  
At the heavily promoted Antelope Valley press conference Perez also announced that his agency has opened a related investigation into allegations of discriminatory policing by the law enforcement agency that patrols the area, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. This is relevant because Perez alleges that deputies harass minority residents of government-subsidized housing in an effort to drive blacks and Latinos out of the historically white area that sits about 60 miles north of the city of Los Angeles, according to Judicial Watch's Jill Farrell.  
Officers who patrol the Antelope Valley engage in a pattern or practice of discrimination on the basis of race or national origin, Perez said, revealing that his agency made the determination after “extensive conversations with individuals” in addition to “representatives from community organizations.”

Have You Seen the First Ever Double Barrel .45 Caliber Pistol Ready to Hit the Shelves?

What do you get when you merge two .45 caliber pistols into one with a sleek new design?
A whole lot of compact stopping power, also known as the Arsenal Firearms AF2011.
Have You Seen the First Ever Double Barrel .45 Caliber Pistol Ready to Hit the Shelves?
The folks over at the Firearms Blog found this incredible new design created by Arsenal Firearms, who provided these photos and the video below.
The AF team is clearly proud of their achievement, writing on their site that:
“To commemorate the legendary Colt 1911-A1 in the Centenary by making a true industrial market-ready double barrel .45 caliber pistol. We achieved success in the brief span of 6 months, after intense and round-the-clock 3D designing, stereolithographic modeling and parts machining.”
This is not an entirely new concept, and there have been many other double barrel pistols created in the past. In fact, ten years ago a Swiss armorer named Vivian Mueller cut and welded together parts of the storied Sig P210 for a similar effect. He successfully created a long slide, double barrel 9mm pistol that shot well. But the AF 2011 is the first time two pistols have been welded into one in a design that is shelf-ready and meant for sale.
Have You Seen the First Ever Double Barrel .45 Caliber Pistol Ready to Hit the Shelves?
That’s right — this model can be produced and sold in a mass market instead of just one-off collector pieces.
Now you may be wondering how the AF 2011 performs. Sure, it looks cool, and it certainly can throw rounds downrange, but what kind of patterns can it put on a target?
According to the AF team, the double barrel 2011 shoots cleanly and with good-enough accuracy:
“The gun can be handled by any shooter… [and] holds amazing and surprising target performance for the shooter: in fact, it will group all the 8 double .45 caliber rounds (16 bullets) held in the duplex, single columns magazines, in a target of the size of an orange at 15 yards and of a water melon at 25.”
Have You Seen the First Ever Double Barrel .45 Caliber Pistol Ready to Hit the Shelves?
Whether you think you have room in your collection for the AF-2011 or not, you probably want to see this amazing piece of gun craftsmanship doing what it does best. So below is a video that gives you the full effect of the AF2011.
Right after he finishes off some shots, the test shooter in the video describes the stopping power in his hands:
“This was 8 double rounds…. in other words, it was 4000 grains of payload sent downrange in about 5 seconds. to achieve the same result with a single barrel 9mm pistol we would need to shoot about 30 rounds, with two changes of magazines, in about 30 seconds.”
As described on the AF site, “it will knock down a bull.”
Check out the video of the AF 2011-A1 in action on the range, via YouTube:
And in case you wanted even more specs from Arsenal Firearms:
“The AF2011-A1 can be ordered either with 2 independent triggers and one sear group (left or right, with user-interchangeability for right or left operations) or with 2 triggers permanently joined and the choice of 1 or 2 sear groups. The AF2011-A1 is available in mirror finish Deep Blue or with a 3400 Vickers surface hardness White Ash Nitrite coating.”

The federal government is proposing some sweeping new regulations that will affect how family farms operate in America.  The Blaze has reported on these regulations over the last year.  This week we covered the testimony by Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis before the Senate Subcommittee on Labor, Health & Human Services, Education and Related Agencies, and Pensions.
The regulations and what Solis had to say did not sit well with Glenn Beck.  He spent significant portion of his Thursday GBTV broadcast explaining his deep concerns. describes this as “one of his most passionate monologues since he began to broadcast on television.”

“I am so tired of these elites telling us what to do,” Glenn said.
“Because I saw hard work from my father, because I saw him have passion for what he did. Because I saw hard work from my grandfather. Because I saw people work themselves to death I happen to have good work ethic and I hope my kids learn it from me.”

Major RED FLAG: Military Cover-up in Afghanistan

 16 March 2012

Info just coming out that a 22-year-old Marine was murdered on 01 Feb, about 6 weeks ago, in another insider attack.  The military covered it up as if it were combat operations.  Lance Cpl. Edward J. Dycus of Greenville, Mississippi was shot in the back of the head by an Afghan soldier.  Our people immediately turned over the murderer to the Afghans.
That's a huge Red Flag on numerous levels.  How many other "combat deaths" have been caused by insider attacks, and how often has our military covered it up?  How many murderers have been turned over to Afghans?  What happens when we turn over a killer to Afghans?
We've taken about 200 Coalition casualties that we know of from insider attacks.  How many do we not know of?  This cover-up is rotten from head to tail.

Official: Afghanistan slaying suspect headed to U.S.

SEATTLE — The soldier accused of killing 16 Afghan villagers was on his way to a U.S. military prison, a senior defense official said Friday, as the soldier’s attorney spoke of the impact the fighting had on his client.  The defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of security surrounding the move, said the soldier was en route to Fort Leavenworth, Kan., the military’s only maximum-security prison. The Kuwaiti military said in a statement carried on the state news Friday that the soldier had leftKuwait. He had been moved there from Afghanistan on Wednesday because, officials said, there was no appropriate detention facility to hold him in Afghanistan.  The U.S. defense official said the suspect’s move does not necessarily mean a decision was imminent on announcing formal criminal charges.  The soldier’s attorney, Seattle attorney John Henry Browne, told The Associated Press on Friday that he and the judge advocate general had to cancel a 6 a.m. PDT video conference with the soldier because the suspect was either preparing to fly or was en route.  Browne said either he or his legal partner, Emma Scanlan, will meet with the soldier at Fort Leavenworth next week.  The details have not been independently verified.Browne said that the day before the rampage, the soldier saw his friend’s leg blown off.  He said his client’s family provided him with details of the injury to another U.S. soldier.  “His leg was blown off, and my client was standing next to him,” he said Thursday.  It isn’t clear whether the incident might have helped prompt the horrific middle-of-the-night attack on civilians in two villages last Sunday.Browne said it affected all of the soldiers at the base.  The suspect had been injured twice during his three previous deployments to Iraq and didn’t want to go to Afghanistan to begin with,Browne said. Browne declined to release his client’s name, citing concerns for the man’s family, which is under protection on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Tacoma. But he said the soldier has two young children, ages 3 and 4.
