GUESS WHAT ? YOUR COP'S ARE MOST LIKELY CONSERVATIVE ! WONDER WHY ? READ THIS.

Some months ago I had the misfortune of having to perform an administrative task that had only the most tangential of connections to actual police work.  It was my further misfortune that the task required a trip to the LAPD headquarters building in downtown L.A., a place I visit as seldom as possible.
There, in one of the offices where the LAPD’s vast bureaucracy churns out a steady stream of mostly meaningless paperwork, I chanced to see, adorning the wall of one of the many cubicles, something I had never seen in any police station I had worked in or visited: a Barack Obama campaign sticker.  
I had come with another officer, and I very discretely directed his attention to the sticker, bringing a roll of his eyes and the whispered question: “What’s going on here?”  
The cubicle’s occupant was absent, preventing what might have been an uncomfortable conversation.  My partner and I finished our business, and as we drove back to our assigned station I asked him if he knew of any cops who had voted for Barack Obama.  He didn’t, nor did I.
Which is not to say there aren’t any.  The LAPD prides itself on diversity, after all, so I expect Mr. Obama got a few votes from within its ranks.  But not from anyone at my station, where posting an Obama sticker on one’s cubicle would be all but unthinkable.
I’m a bit ashamed to admit I was once a liberal, the product of a Jesuit high school and what is often referred to as an elite university.  A few years of police work cured me of this affliction, but even before I came around I knew enough to keep my political opinions to myself.  (I described my political conversion for NRO back in 2000.  Part 1 is here; Part 2 is here.)
Cops tend to be conservatives, perhaps because they spend the bulk of their day dealing with the consequences of failed liberal policies.  Whatever liberals you might find in the department can mostly be found, like the absent cubicle dweller discussed above, in bureaucratic assignments that keep them safely shielded from the hazards of actual police work, and from those pesky consequences.

Undated photo provided by family of Shirley Kornegay.
Shirley Marks was five feet tall and barely 100 pounds in 1943 when she finally managed to enlist in the Marine Corps, after trying three times to meet the physical requirements.
It was World War II, and she, like 23,000 other American women, answered the call to serve at home so that male Marines could fight overseas. After boot camp, she boarded a troop train to San Diego, where she was assigned to drive trucks at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot.
It sounds patriotic, and these women were trailblazers, doing tough jobs.
But, her children say, the men’s sharp dress-blue uniforms are really what attracted her in the first place.
Shirley Kornegay, her married name, eventually reconnected with the Marines decades later, and was laid to rest with military honors at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery on Thursday. She died March 7 at the age of 89.
Col. Stephanie Smith solemnly handed a folded American flag to Kornegay’s oldest daughter, offering the thanks of a grateful nation.
“She truly is a pioneer,” said Smith, who until recently was a MCRD battalion commander. “I couldn’t be doing and having the opportunities I have in the Marine Corps were it not for amazing women like her who chose to come in and serve their country. Her stepping up really paved the way for me.”
Kornegay and 48 other women were the first female Marines assigned to the San Diego recruit depot during World War II. They called themselves the 49ers.
Since 1913, women had been allowed to enlist as Marines during war. But their jobs were mostly clerical.
This time around, female Marines did all types of “men’s work” on base, including fixing trucks in the motor pool, parachute rigging, welding and mapmaking.
By mid-1944, women comprised almost two-thirds of personnel staffing Marine bases in the United States and in the Pacific, said Barbara McCurtis, director of the MCRD Command Museum.
“A lot of people forget that women did all facets of the base. We have some great pictures of women mechanics,” McCurtis said.
“There were a lot of women who did extraordinary things. They drove as if they were the regular guys in the motor pool, and they probably hadn’t had that kind of background.”
Kornegay met her husband, Kenneth, one day in the motor pool when he saved her from a runaway motorcycle. He was a heavy-equipment mechanic just back from Guadalcanal.
In their wedding photograph, both wear their Marine uniforms, ties crisply knotted.
After V-J Day, Shirley Kornegay was discharged, as were all the female Marines. Her husband became a civilian mechanic for the military, and the couple settled in San Diego County, eventually joined by four children.
Shirley Kornegay didn’t talk much about her Marine days, her children say. But she was still tough as nails.
“We would ‘Yes, sir,’ and ‘Yes, ma’am,’ everybody. And if we didn’t, we were let know about it,” said Robin Baker, laughing. Her brother, Brian Kornegay, added, “You see how polite I am.”
Their sister Shawnee Miller, who did academic research on her mother, said her mom’s silence was typical of military women of that era.
“Women never spoke of it. They felt that what they did wasn’t important. They weren’t at Guadalcanal. The men had the war stories,” she said.
Many years later, Shirley Kornegay’s health was poor and she was living in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs home in Chula Vista.
Her son got a bright idea in January 2010. He called MCRD and told one very nice public affairs officer about his mother’s story. “Can some Marines bring her a birthday cake?” Brian Kornegay asked. No problem, the officer said.
On Shirley’s birthday, Col. Smith and four female Marines arrived with cake for the whole wing of the VA home.
“Once a Marine always a Marine — that’s really shown in the past couple of years with the way the Marines have treated my mom,” Brian Kornegay said.
A friendship bloomed, and Shirley became a minor celebrity at the recruit depot. They invited her to attend their battle color ceremony and to be a reviewing officer for a boot camp graduating class.
“Ever since then, it just added to her whole life. I think it kept her going,” her son said.
At Thursday’s ceremony, Shirley Kornegay received a military rifle salute and a Marine in dress blues played Taps.
Her ashes will go next to her husband’s at Fort Rosecrans. She gets her own niche, one of her children said. Because she earned it.

The gullible mind explained

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) In light of the string of the blatant falsehoods being announced by the U.S. government these days (FDA, DHS, White House, etc.) it's interesting that so many people still believe whatever they are told by "official" sources. It brings up the question of the functioning of their brains: How could a person swallow official information so gullibly and so completely without even asking commonsense questions about the reliability or factual basis of that information?

These people, it turns out, are operating from what I called The Gullible Mind. It is a psychological processing malfunction that filters out information based on its source rather than its integrity. People who operate from The Gullible Mind tend to have misplaced trust in governments, institutions, mainstream news networks, doctors, scientists or anyone who wears the garb of apparent authority.

Whereas a normal, intelligent person would raise commonsense questions about information they receive from all sources, the Gullible Mind wholly accepts virtually any information from sources that occupy the role of apparent authority in society.

Governments never lie

But how does this work inside their heads? It's an interesting process. Gullible Mind people do believe it is possible for a government (or institution) to lie; but they believe that 


governments, institutions and doctors choose NOT to lie even when it would serve their own self interests to do so.

Follow this carefully, because this is the fascinating part. These Gullible Mind people effectively believe that even though a government official could lie about something, they would never actually do so. And why wouldn't they? Because, ultimately, the Gullible Mind crowd believes that governments, institutions and mainstream media outlets operate from a sort of honor code. So even if it were in the interests of our own government to lie to us, it would never happen because that would violate this imaginary honor code.

Where does this honor code exist? Where is it written down? Nowhere, of course. It is imaginary. But to The Gullible Mind, it seems real. Interestingly, even though this "honor code" only exists in the imagination of The Gullible Mind person, they project this honor code onto sources of authority, imagining that they abide by it.

Extreme gullibility

This is how The Gullible Mind person believes that network news always reports the truth. The news networks have a sense of "honor," they believe, and this sense of honor requires them to always report the truth and never manipulate the news for any nefarious purposes. So news networks never "shape" the news and they only report what is factually true without any consideration whatsoever of politics or advertiser profits.

This view of the world is, of course, laughably naive. And yet it is the core belief system of at least half the population -- the Gullible Mind half that believes everything it is told by its own government, media or authority figures.

Interestingly, the Gullible Mind is also inwardly gullible because it does not recognize its own gullibility. Instead, it believes it is operating as a Rational Mind. This false Rational Mind believes it functions as a critical filter of incoming information, but even this is self deception. In truth, this false Rational Mind is on "auto filter" so that it filters out any information that conflicts with the information it is receiving from official sources.

This is the key to understanding the Gullible Mind -- it isn't the quality of the information itself that matters; it is the confirmation of the story from official sources that "makes it real" in the Gullible Mind.

The Easter Bunny killed Bin Laden!

For example, let's say a Gullible Mind person comes across an announcement that says the Easter Bunny has killed Osama Bin Laden. The report claims that colored eggs were found near Bin Laden's body, and there was evidence of feathers being left at the scene, which proves the Easter Bunny was there.

Then, last August, after years of painstaking work by my intelligence community, I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread to ground. I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan . And finally, last week, I determined that I had enough intelligence to take action, and I authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad , Pakistan .

The three-member Marine Corps administrative board at Camp Pendleton found that Sgt. Gary Stein had committed misconduct by posting anti-Obama comments on a Facebook page, calling the comments “contemptuous.”
Stein, a nine-year veteran, posted comments on Facebook calling Obama a coward and “the economic and religious enemy,” the Administrative Discharge Board was told. 
Stein urged the president’s defeat in the fall election, writing “screw Obama” and superimposed Obama’s face on a poster for the movie “Jackass.”

The board’s decision came after a daylong hearing. The final decision on Stein’s status will be made by the commanding general of the Marine Corp Recruit Depot San Diego. (BIO BELOW)

U.S. Navy jet crashes in Virginia; 2 pilots believed to have ejected

Posted by Bh

FROM FREE ZONE MEDIA NEWS 

Officials have confirmed that a U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornet jet has crashed in Virginia after taking off from U.S. Naval Air Station Oceana, with the two pilots believed to have ejected before impact.
There are currently no reports of injuries on the ground. Several photos have emerged from the crash, showing the wreckage and black smoke rising from nearby buildings.
Virginia Beach EMS division chief Bruce Nedelka said several witnesses saw the pilots dumping fuel from the jet before ejecting, which likely avoided a massive fireball and fire.
Virginia Department of Transportation traffic cameras showed black smoke rising from the Birdneck Road area of Virginia Beach at 12:30 p.m. local time, FoxNews reports.
MSNBC is reporting that a local witness told the network the jet crashed into a local two-story apartment building. They are also reporting that two individuals have been admitted to nearby Sentara Virginia Beach Hospital in connection with the crash, according to a public information officer at the facility. One of the individuals is reportedly one of the two pilots who ejected from the plane, while another is a civilian who is suffering from smoke inhalation.

"He was in shock and still strapped to his seat," Volunteer rescue squad member Pat Kavanaugh told CNN affiliate WTKR.

David Schleck of the Virginian Pilot tells MSNBC that several witnesses saw both parachutes descending in the air, with both parachutes being caught in buildings above ground.

Schleck says a local neighborhood child was able to obtain a knife that was reportedly used to free the Navy pilot.

Report: VA Teacher Kristin Martin Said Republicans Are Stupid
Republicans are “stupid.” 
That loaded statement was purportedly delivered to sixth-graders by their public school teacher in Fairfax County, Virginia. The educator, Kristin Martin, is said to have railed against conservatives, allegedly telling students that “[Republicans] don’t care about anyone but wealthy people and businesses.”
These comments, reportedly made at Powell Elementary School as voters were flocking to the school to cast ballots on Super Tuesday, are certainly eyebrow-raising. The Daily Caller spoke with students who were apparently in the classroom that day.
Report: VA Teacher Kristin Martin Said Republicans Are Stupid
“It all started when this disabled kid came in and named all the Republicans candidates for Super Tuesday,” one student said. “She [Martin] said to him, ‘I don’t like them, I think that they are stupid.’”
One mother, a Republican who is going unnamed in an effort to protect her child from retaliation, claims that the teacher’s words constitute indoctrination.
“I felt like the teacher was brainwashing naive, young children to believe people like me, my family and, to a certain extent, my daughter, were stupid,” the woman told The DC in an e-mail.
According to the woman’s daughter, Martin also made it known that she had voted for President Barack Obama and that the Democrats tend to do more “for the community and schools.”
Report: VA Teacher Kristin Martin Said Republicans Are Stupid
After learning about the incident, the mother promptly contacted Linda Clifford, the school’s principal. Via e-mail, Clifford responded with an apology, writing:
I am so sorry that Miss Martin used such very poor judgment. I will certainly address it with her tomorrow. I share your assessment of the situation that there is no room for that kind of comment in a school setting. Thank you so much for bringing this serious situation to my attention.
Students report that Martin did, indeed, apologize to students the next day, claiming that she “shouldn’t have shared” the opinions with the class. You can read more about this incident over on The DC. It follows another report about a middle school in the same county that allegedly encouraged students to do opposition research on GOP candidates.

I MADE A BOO BOO, BUT THEN I IS THE BOSS, TOUGH
Press Secretary Jay Carney‘s longstanding tiff with Fox’s Ed Henry has been well-documented, but now it seems even members of the media’s “big three” (ABC, CBS, and NBC) are getting fed up with Carney and his wordsmithing.
During his Thursday-morning press briefing, Carney continued to try and explain away Obama’s comments that it would be “unprecedented” for the Supreme Court to overturn his health care law. After trying to wax poetic to Henry, CBS reporter Bill Plante called out Carney.
“What he said on Monday was an obvious misspoken moment, because he talked about the Court not being in the position to overturn acts of Congress. You‘re standing up there twisting yourself in knots because he made a mistake and you can’t admit it.”
Carney shot back: “No no no, Bill, I am acknowledging– you’re sharing in the righteous indignation here of your colleague [referring to Henry].”
Plante answered: “I‘m just noting that you’re putting yourself in knots.”
“The president spoke in answer to a question relatively briefly and in the context of this case made the statement that there is longstanding judicial precedent which would argue that court should not overturn this la,” Carney then added. “I totally grant to you that he did not refer to the Commerce Clause, he did not refer to the full context. I think he believed that that was understood. Clearly, some folks, notably people sitting in that chair [referring to Ed Henry] and others, missed that.”

Something changed on Tuesday night with Mitt Romney’s three primary state victories, and it wasn’t just the all-but-universal acknowledgment that he’ll be the Republican nominee.
In his speech in Wisconsin, Romney finally found the right argument to use against Barack Obama — indeed, located the very specific dividing line between the president and his opposition that Republicans and conservatives have been trying to draw for four years now.
The president, Romney said, has “spent the last four years laying the foundation for a new government-centered society.”

“Government-centered society” isn’t the most felicitous phrase, nor the most memorable sound-bite. But that may be for the best. What it lacks in mellifluousness, it makes up for in deadly accuracy.

It’s not enough for Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer that the city schools are jumping on the latest elite food fad by dropping “pink slime”: He wants them on the bandwagon now.
Let’s be clear: The meat product known as “lean finely textured beef” does look gross. But so does just about every meat product — ever seen how they make pastrami? And this stuff is perfectly safe, and almost certainly healthier than its likely replacement.
The US Department of Agriculture goes to great lengths to ensure that the national school-lunch program serves appropriate food to America’s kids. And its scientists have been unambiguous: This meat product is perfectly fine.

But activist celebrity chef Jamie Oliver decided to make a stink about it, and “right-thinking” people have rushed to go along.

By Greg Hunter’s
President Obama attacked the Supreme Court, this week, over his health care bill.  The nation’s highest court is deciding if a law, known as “Obama Care,” is constitutional.  It would force all Americans to buy insurance under threat of fine or penalty.  The President said that he hoped the court would not overturn the law.  The President could not imagine the court would rule against him and opined, “And I’d just remind conservative commentators that for years what we’ve heard is, the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint — that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law.”
Hard to believe that President Obama, a Constitutional Law professor, doesn’t understand a little something called “Separation of Powers”?  He does.  I think the Supreme Court will rule the “Obama Care” law is unconstitutional this summer, and the President wants to set up another wedge issue for the fall election.  In the Middle East, Iran stated it is sticking to its “nuclear path.”  Super powers of the world meet with Iran, next week, in Turkey to try to avoid war.  Israel has a new enemy and it is Egypt.  A rocket was fired this week from the Sinai desert, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu now calls the area a “Terror Zone.”
In Syria, The Russians are warning the west not to arm the rebels there.  Nearly 10,000 Syrians have been killed in the last year of civil war.  South Carolina became the second state in the union to declare gold and silver to be money.  Twelve more states are following in the footsteps of Utah and South Carolina in a move to allow gold and silver as a form of payment.  Finally, I want to end with the comments made this week by billionaire Hugo Salinas-Price.  He made his fortune in Mexican retail and said about the world’s financial system, “. . . this whole scheme of paper is unworkable, then the world is going to go down in flames.  The only thing that would last will be people’s savings of gold and silver.”   When billionaires start talking about the world going down in “flames” and touting gold and silver—look out!  All these stories and much more analysis are coming from Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog.com in the Weekly News Wrap-Up.

THE TRUE REASON FOR OBAMACARE

FREE ZONE MEDIA

Obamacare SC The True Reason For ObamacareThe True Reason For Obamacare


A week ago,Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy observed that implementation of the Affordable Care Act stood to “…change the relationship of the federal government to the individual in a very fundamental way.”
Although Kennedy was probably unaware of it at the time,that “change” is precisely what the authors of ObamaCare have hoped to impose on the American public for decades. For healthcare itself was never the real purpose of the massive,complex,and overreaching law as the following information should make clear.
Charged with defending the constitutionality of the Act before the Court,Solicitor General Donald Verrilli told the Justices that some 40 million Americans were either permanently or occasionally without health insurance.
But were that number 50 million,as has been claimed by some ObamaCare advocates during the past year,these facts must be considered:
  • 8 million of that number are Medicaid recipients and therefore NOT uninsured
  • 10 million are illegal aliens
