HAPPY HALLOWEEN

THANK YOU FOR THE ADD,MLH&R

Are you truly free? Can you really spend your money as you see fit? Can you express your actual thoughts without affecting your employment or your finances? Can you say anything you want without any negative consequences? At first, the natural answer is, “yes, of course I can.” But can you really? If you stop and think about these questions for a couple of minutes, you will start to realize that the answer is not so obvious.
The government actually dictates to you how much of your money you can keep for yourself and how much you must “give” to them. Does the word “tax” ring a bell? Who doesn’t carefully consider their words before they speak, especially if they are speaking in front of their boss or their customers. Expressing certain thoughts can have a negative effect on your life and your finances. In our politically correct culture, you must be extra careful concerning what you say and who you allow to hear your true thoughts. Is this really freedom?
In truth, you are not truly free. You are free to live your life as you see fit as long as you adhere to certain boundaries that our government sets up, and those boundaries are becoming more and more restrictive every year. Just look at the changes in the political climate over the last 30 years. More and more of your freedoms are slipping away and the government always seems to justify it one way or another. See things as they really are and take the appropriate steps to ensure your future.

Waco Day 897

OFF THE WIRE
agingrebel.com
Waco will never end. For the jurors in the first Biker Brawl trial, listening to the prosecution’s  slow motion attempt to manufacture a criminal case against Dallas Bandido Jake Carrizal day after day, week after week must be like drowning in a manure pond.
The trial, originally scheduled to begin October 9, will enter its fourth week tomorrow. This is only trial one of a possible 192. There are also about 100 civil complaints for false arrest waiting for the criminal cases to end. A handful of civil suits have been filed against the Twin Peaks restaurant. And then just over the horizon is the prospect of a RICO case titled United States v. Reyna et al. And then just a few months after that the dream of the promised land, a vision of McClennan County District Attorney Abelino Reyna in an orange jumpsuit accented with shackles and a belly chain, listening as a humorless judge reads him the plea colloquy. “And how far did you go in school, Mr. Reyna? Do you understand the charges against you? Do you understand that by making this plea you may be giving up certain of your rights” Like the right to see the stars at night, big and bright, for, say, eight or nine years.
If the prosecutors were actual human beings they would know they have lost. If the four grand inquisitors – Brody Burks, Amanda Dillon, Michael Jarrett and Abel Reyna – actually had evidence that Carrizal was guilty of some crime they would have mentioned it by now. Don’t you think? Wouldn’t you? They have not because they do not. Their only recourse seems to be to delay and delay and delay the inevitable contempt and scorn they are bringing on themselves.

Blood Soaked Photos

Just Friday, defense attorney Casie Gotro complained that she still hasn’t seen all the evidence in this overblown case. She insinuated that she may eventually move for a mistrial. Carrizal will probably be acquitted before it comes to that
This is a contextless prosecution. This jury is compelled to watch a drama written by idiots, full of blood soaked crime photos and baseless accusations glued together by half-baked conjecture and inference. The presentation of the ballistics evidence just started at the end of the third week. Maybe the defense will get its turn soon. But the prosecution just called its 45th witness. Its witness list has 450 names on it so this could take awhile
Prosecutors are deliberately misleading the jury in order to secure a conviction against a 35-year-old family man who is, at most, guilty of not trusting a system run by people like the prosecutors. This is not a trial. This is a political campaign. It is a political campaign because that is what these arrogant nitwits know how to win. None of them gives a damn about justice. They only care about winning.

Willie Horton

This prosecutorial team is comprised of what Paddy Chayesky called humanoids. They are not people who know the world from experience. They know the world at secondhand. They are the kind of very smart people who don’t get art or religion. That is why it is so easy for them to try to slander Carrizal’s character.
None of them even has the simple human capacity to feel ashamed. The low point this week may have come when prosecutors actually had the gall to show jurors images of all the dead including Jesus “Jesse” “Mohawk” Rodriguez. Then they showed the jury photos of Jacob Rhyne who was one of the two men who assassinated Rodriguez like he was a rabid possum. The jury was supposed to infer that somehow all the deaths were Jake Carrizal’s fault. Because he was there. Because he didn’t stay home that day. Because he knew the Cossacks were dangerous and he refused to be bullied by them. Because he subscribes to an old fashioned code of honor that forbids men to allow themselves to be bullied. That’s why the prosecutors wanted “to do” Carrizal first. He’s too big for his britches.
The idea in this case is to convince 12 jurors, not 10 or 11, but 12, that Christopher Jacob Carrizal is Willie Horton. Reyna and his running dogs are trying to convince the jury that Rhyne didn’t shoot Mohawk Rodriguez in the head. Carrizal did. It is an absurd notion and the only explanation for the prosecution’s case is that all of them are such egotistical provincials that they think they can convince anybody of anything.

Jasmin Caldwell

They can’t even convince a local television reporter named Jasmin Caldwell.
Prosecutors put crime scene technicians on the stand for days, and what they proved was that everybody in Texas carries a weapon and Waco has crime scene investigators just like all those big, uppity cities out there beyond the Brazos. You know, like Durango. Oh, and the technicians and operators and other important police persons found very many guns at the scene. So by the looney tunes logic of this whole wacky case, the jury should also infer that Jake Carrizal must be the biggest gun dealer in Central Texas.
“Witnesses painted a mental picture of the day for the jury,” Caldwell wrote Wednesday, “but little was discussed that appeared to actually relate to the defendant and his alleged relation to the evidence being presented.”
So now I’m back in Waco. Friday I pitched some people from The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Vanity Fair, The Times Sunday Magazine and Rolling Stone. No go so far. Friday night a woman I know a little, not a lot, asked me why I was wasting my time on this.
I’m came back anyway. Here goes another three grand. Keep reading. I’m starting to get angry.

The Vegas Vagos Case

OFF THE WIRE
agingrebel.com
Buried in a footnote, at the bottom of the third page of the United States’ eight page “Response to Motion to Reopen” a detention hearing for Vagos Motorcycle Club president Pastor Fausto “Ta Ta” Palafox, is a clue to why the case is being adjudicated in Vegas. The response was filed last June 29. The note reads:
“In August 2010, Homeland Security Investigation (HSI) in Riverside, California began a TIII wiretap investigation targeting the Vagos involving numerous telephones over a nine-month period. Telephones by Defendants Palafox, Lozano, Siemer, Juarez, and others, were intercepted.”
The footnote elaborates the government’s assertion that “The evidence against Palafox includes but is not limited to witness testimony, Title III intercepts,1 and video surveillance.”

Hello Officer

Palafox wasn’t the only guy whose phone was tapped. Two million conversations involving 44,000 people were authorized by a single Riverside County, California judge named Helios Hernandez. Federal investigators usually prefer to have state courts authorize wiretaps because the local judges are less worried about Constitutional technicalities. Federal judges usually view wiretaps as a last resort. The wiretaps authorized by Hernandez remain mostly sealed and the ones pertinent to the Vagos case have not yet been shown to defense attorneys.
The indictment of 23 Vagos was returned by a grand jury on September 6, 2016 but the indictment remained sealed and nobody was arrested until June 16, 2017. The weak and surplusage filled indictment illustrates the power of prosecutors to punish people they don’t like by simply accusing them of being criminals.

Conspiracy To Murder

For example, Palafox is accused of ordering the murder of Jeffrey Pettigrew, president of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club’s San Jose charter, who died in a brawl between the two clubs in John Ascuaga’s Nugget Casino in Sparks, Nevada on September 23, 2011. The accusation was made in a state trial in Reno by an ex-Vago named Gary “Jabbers” Rudnick. Rudnick was the fellow who actually started the fight that led to Pettigrew’s death. He was expelled from the Vagos the next day.
In a signed statement recanting his testimony, Rudnick later wrote:“There was no conspiracy” to kill Pettigrew. “It was just a fight between me and him.” Rudnick wrote that state prosecutor Karl Hall fabricated the conspiracy and offered Rudnick a lighter sentence for his perjury. “He told me … what he wanted me to change to lie for him,” Rudnick wrote. “I was looking at 25 years in prison.”

Answer Is

Many of the accusations in the indictment are based on investigative reports made by a Los Angeles County Sheriff and sometime Tactical Field Officer for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives named Augustino Brancato. In an associated case that was folded into the current indictment, Brancato was caught on tape plotting to lie about a defendant.
After Brad Heath and Brett Kelman of USA Today broke the news about the massive wiretapping expedition in Riverside County in 2015, federal prosecutors in Los Angeles, where most of the accused Vagos live, told federal investigators they would no longer prosecute cases based largely on wiretaps authorized by state court judges.
And that is why the Vagos case is being prosecuted in Las Vegas.

Can You Buy A License to Speed?

OFF THE WIRE

In the parking lots of Silicon Valley’s venture capital firms, expensive cars gleam in the California sun. Successful tech companies like Facebook may have set a culture of not flaunting wealth, but the Valley’s financiers don’t feel similarly restrained. The prototypical car is a Porsche 911, with its impractical two-door design that tells the world, “I have money to burn.” 
A closer look reveals that the cars share a mysterious detail: they nearly all have a custom license plate frame that reads, “Member. 11-99 Foundation.” If you look for it, you’ll start noticing the same license plate frames on nice cars throughout the area. BMWs parked outside upscale Palo Alto restaurants have the plates. Sports cars zipping up and down Highway 101 do as well. 
Are the Bay Area’s wealthy all part of some sort of illuminati group that identifies each other by license plate instead of secret handshakes? If the foundation is a charitable one, what cause has garnered such elite support?
The answer is the state highway patrol -- the men and women that most people interact with only when getting ticketed for speeding. A number of the frames read “CHP 11-99 Foundation,” which is the full name of a charitable organization that supports California Highway Patrol officers and their families in times of crisis. Along with engraved mugs, jackets, and leather wallets, the foundation gives out the license plate frames as tokens of thanks to donors who become “Lifetime Members.” Donors receive one license plate as part of a $2,500 “Classic” level donation, or two as part of a bronze, silver, or gold level donation of $5,000, $10,000, or $25,000. 
Rumor has it, however, that the license plate frames come with a lucrative return on investment. With a frame announcing that the driver has contributed a substantial amount of money to a fund that benefits highway patrol officers, donors believe that cops won’t give them speeding tickets.
“I have the ultimate speeding ticket solution,” a member of a Mercedes-Benz owners community wrote online back in 2002. “I paid $1800 for a lifetime membership into the 11-99 foundation. My only goal was to get the infamous ‘get out of jail’ free license plate frame.” A more recent post on a sports car site reads, “I have been stopped with the frame on my car only once, and I was let go. The officer specifically referenced the license plate frame as the reason he let me go.”
Which raises the question, can California drivers buy a license to speed?
An Old Story
The question of whether 11-99 Foundation license plate frames allow wealthy drivers to buy their way out of speeding tickets is an old one. The 11-99 Foundation has sold license plate frames for most of its 32 year existence, and drivers have been aware of the potential benefits since at least the late 1990s. But attention to the issue in 2006-2008 led the foundation to stop giving out the frames.
In 2006, a blog post about the frames entitled “Culture of Corruption” reached the top of the Google search results for the foundation, prompting representatives to contact the author. A police officer forum described the situation with the frames as “out of control.” An article in the LA Times asked “Can Drivers Buy CHP Leniency?” The article began by describing a young man zipping around traffic -- including a police cruiser -- and telling the Times that he believed his 11-99 frames kept him from receiving a ticket.
In response to the interest from the LA Times, the CHP’s new commissioner investigated the issue and described himself as “surprised” and “bothered.” He drew up a memo for the agency that stressed that no special consideration should be given to any drivers, and he contacted the 11-99 Foundation. 
In September 2008, the 11-99 Foundation announced it would “phase out the distribution of Member license-plate frames to donors, effective January 1, 2009,” in order to protect its good name. No more license plate frames were given out for several years until, curiously, the foundation decided to bring them back.
Getting Out of Speeding Tickets: A Cottage Industry
Without the ability to purchase frames from the foundation, buyers turned to secondary markets. 11-99 Foundation donors had long sold extra frames on Craigslist, eBay, and forums for owners of pricey cars. The foundation’s decision made them an increasingly hot commodity. 
But the decision was almost irrelevant to another thriving market: the production and sale of fake 11-99 license plate frames. Drivers who heard about the “speeding ticket insurance,” but didn’t have a few thousand dollars to spend on it, commissioned or bought fakes for under one hundred dollars a pop. “I was traveling south on the 101 yesterday and spotted at least three fake 11-99 foundation license plate frames,” one police officer shared on an online forum. “The first was TOTALLY fake like something a person had made at a swap meet or bought online for $10.” It’s “out of control,” another added.
11-99 license plate frames are prominent in the Bay Area where Priceonomics is located. But spending time on the sites where they are bought and sold reveals that they represent only one part of a gray market of license plate frames that people believe offer an insider’s wink to cops.
Many police departments give out or sell license plate frames with officer’s local radio call sign. Cops and their friends and family can use the frames on their personal vehicles, and many believe it lets officers know to be lenient on a fellow officer or his/her family. As a result, the secondhand market is full of license plate frames, fake and legitimate. 
A BMW owner shows off his license plate with a LAPD call sign. Some frames are available only to officers; others are sold publicly. Since so many people make fakes or buy secondhand, many officers say they assume the owner is not a cop and may even be a criminal with something to hide.
One enterprising fellow shared his strategy for avoiding tickets: veteran license plate frames. Although he is not a veteran, the frames are sold publicly, so he buys them under the assumption that cops don’t want to ticket veterans. Others swapped stories of local police departments that gave out license plate frame stickers for each $100 donation.
If all else fails, speeders can cover their windows with "We support our local police" stickers. Although according to some officers, that can backfire, drawing police attention. “Somehow the cars that have [stickers] always lead to tickets/arrests,” one officer writes.
California drivers, however, no longer need to search out old 11-99 frames. The foundation once again offers license plate frames to donors. A frame can be had for a $2,500 donation; two for $5,000.
Does It Work?
If cops really are lenient toward 11-99 Foundation donors, it’s not a problem the police currently acknowledge.
When we called the Palo Alto police department to ask about the license plate frames around Stanford, an officer informed us that “most cops are familiar with the program,” but that the frames were never discussed in the department. (Local police departments wouldn’t necessarily be motivated by the frames, since the 11-99 Foundation exclusively benefits the state highway patrol.) The officer replied to questions about officers treating frame owners differently with standard lines about “patrol impartiality” and tickets being given “at the discretion of the officer.” 
At the California Highway Patrol, Officer John Michael Harris told us that the perception of 11-99 frames as a license to speed is “not accurate at all.” To the foundation’s credit, Officer Harris said that the 11-99 Foundation told the highway patrol to report if any of their members attempted to use their status for preferential treatment so that the foundation could rescind that donor’s membership.
When we asked whether individual officers may take the frames into consideration, Harris replied with a flat “No” and stated that officers never give “preferential treatment based on affiliation.” Inquiring how the CHP could be unconcerned -- despite the commissioner finding it necessary in 2008 to contact the foundation and remind officers not to give anyone preferential treatment -- Harris repeated that citation decisions were impartial and “at the discretion of the officer.”
Owners of the license plate frames certainly believe that they are effective -- although not 100% of the time. Posts on forums for sports car owners are full of people claiming to get out of tickets with the frame, and anecdotally people have shared stories of wealthy neighbors recommending the frames to avoid tickets. But it could be a false perception. 
On Officer.com, in a discussion about 11-99 frames (and fakes) mentioned earlier, a number of cops weighed in. Priceonomics is still trying to verify identities, so their statements could be fabrications. But it presents an intriguing perspective of officers’ potential views on the 11-99 frames.
A number of cops reported ignoring the license plate frames when they decided whether to pull over and ticket drivers. One cop describes a driver whose “first words” were about the stickers indicating the donations he made. When the driver insisted that they required big donations, the cop replied, “Well, paying for these citations shouldn’t be a problem.”
But some answers indicate that people have reason to believe that the frames will help them avoid tickets. In addition to the frames, the CHP 11-99 Foundation gives out membership cards to big donors. In reference to secondhand or fake frames, one cop wrote, “Unless you have the I.D. in hand when (not if) I stop you, no love will be shown.” Another added, “Ya gotta have more than just a license plate frame or a sticker.” The implication from these officers seems to be that buying a fake license plate frame is useless, but real donors will receive some leniency.
The Road is Paved with Good Intentions
The 11-99 Foundation’s announcement in 2008 that it would no longer provide license plate frames did not cite donors motivated by a desire to avoid speeding tickets. It focused on the sale of frames on secondary markets in violation of the foundation’s policy that the frames are property of the 11-99 Foundation. The announcement complained that sites like eBay did not comply with requests to take down listings for the frames. Then president Edward Trickey stated that “it’s really important to block these sales, so we can prevent the frames from being misused, especially by people who don’t share the 11-99 Foundation’s goals.”
The idea that none of the foundation's donors have an interest in avoiding speeding tickets -- whether it works or not -- and that only secondhand buyers see the speeding ticket insurance angle does seem like wishful thinking. Everything reported in this story is public knowledge, and the foundation's own frequently asked questions page finds it necessary to stress that the foundation doesn’t simply sell license plate frames.
A reproduction 11-99 license plate frame available for sale on a license plate frame website 
Yet this still seems to be the foundation’s official stance. After failing to reach the foundation’s CEO, administrative assistant Jenny Lawrence answered our questions. Ms. Lawrence told us that the foundation did not believe donors were using the plates to avoid traffic citations (in her words: it is “not something we are actively working to address at this point"), and she replied that the frames were brought back after a redesign rather than due to declining donations. Ms. Lawrence acknowledged that the frames were changed to no longer have the acronym “CHP” on the frame, but focused on the problems the foundation previously had with “people selling them online.” 
No one is getting rich by selling 11-99 license plate frames, and the donations go to a well regarded cause. The CHP 11-99 Foundation has donated over $21 million in emergency assistance to the families of police officers, particularly officers killed in duty. If cops are being lenient, it’s not in exchange for donations to a slush fund. 
But there’s not really an argument for keeping the license plate frames. The foundation says the frames play a valuable marketing role, but it doesn’t seem worth the negative perception. If they do function as a license to speed, it does a disservice to the highway patrol by allowing the wealthy to buy preferential treatment. And if they don’t, donors sincerely giving $2,500 or more should be just as happy with complementary jackets and mugs as a license plate frame.
We propose a simple experiment. The foundation could track down the owners of the Porsches and BMWs sporting 11-99 frames, explain the bad publicity the frames cause, and offer the donors a new 11-99 Foundation jacket in exchange for turning in their license plate frame. If they donated for good reasons, and use the plate to spread the foundation’s name, they should happily return the frame and put on the jacket as they head to their next meeting.

We have plenty of housing for illegal' but we can't find space available to house our homeless veterans? Our government has no problem degrading Americans who have served our country with pride and opening the doors for people who don't care about America and are only coming here for free hand outs.
There should be NO HOMELESS SERVICEMEN to begin with! No to refugees and yes to take care of our own! God bless America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why Do Biker Cops Use Big Harley Type Motorcycles Instead of a Sport Bike?

OFF THE WIRE
A lot of people wonder why most Police departments in the country use Harley-Davidsons. Most of these “general wonderers” are people who don’t ride. And it is this lack of knowledge which translates into this ignorance of a question.
Most people who know ride know why Harleys are the preferred choice for police departments across the country. Many people think cops should use sport bikes instead since they’re faster and agiler. Well, nobody is denying the speed and agility of sportbikes.
However, contrary to popular media perception, motorcycle cops aren’t engaging in high-speed pursuits all the time. This is why speed and agility is not particularly high in the police departments’ priority list. What is of greater importance is comfort. Motorcycle cops’ motorcycles are practically their office where they spend 8 hours a day! If you’ve ridden a sportbike you wouldn’t probably even dare imagine that.
So, comfort is the primary reason something like a Harley-Davidson is much better suited than a sportbike. Next, a Harley has the space to stock up all the gear and stuff motorcycle cops need to carry with them. Imagine the kind of baggage they have on their bikes on a sportbike and you’ll understand how ridiculous a motorcycle cop on a sportbike will look!
The next thing is reliability. Police departments can’t have their cops’ motorcycles be stranded in the workshop every couple of thousand kilometers. And this is where Harley’s reliability steps in. Of course, Harleys are hassle-free only when they’re well maintained, but then that’s not really a difficult task for most police departments.
The reason Harleys are preferred by most police departments over other cruisers is probably because departments like to go “American” whenever they can. This is probably why the U.S. Military uses Hummer and not Land Cruisers. Police Cars are generally Fords and not Hondas. And probably also why police motorcycles are more often Harleys and not BMWs.
If we missed any point there, please do let us know in the comments section below.
