Food for Thought for Conservatives

A lot of people have brought up the fact that they won't vote for Trump if he's the eventual nominee. I just want to put something in perspective.

Justice Scalia's seat is vacant. Ginsberg is 82 years old, Kennedy is 79, Breyer is 77, and Thomas is 67. Nowadays, the data shows that the average age of a Supreme Court retirement or death occurs after 75.

These are 5 vacancies that will likely come up over the next 4-8 years. The next President will have the power to potentially create a 7-2 Supreme Court skewed in their ideology.

Think about that... 7-2. If the next President appoints 5 young justices, it will guarantee control of the Supreme Court for an entire generation. 7-2 decisions will hold up much more over time than 5-4 decisions which are seemed to be lacking in mandate.

Hillary has made it clear she will use the Supreme Court to go after the 2nd Amendment. She has literally said that the Supreme Court was wrong in its Heller decision stating that the Court should overturn and remove the individual right to keep and bear arms. Period.

Everyone saying that they won't vote for one candidate or the other if they are the GOP nominee, please realize this. If Hillary Clinton wins and gets to make these appointments, you likely will never see another Conservative victory at the Supreme Court level for the rest of your life. Ever.

If you are a Conservative, a vote for anyone but the GOP nominee, whomever that will be, is a vote for Hillary Clinton.

Dear Officers

Dear Officers,
I have noticed several times in different articles when Police Academy Class # 25 is mentioned it shows it to be in the year of 1963...Class # 25 graduated on the 4th of March, 1962. Their school had started in the fall of 1961.
I am attaching several articles pertaining to the graduation in hopes it will help to correct the date.
My husband, Herman Heath- Badge # 1599, graduated in Class # 25 and as we sadly read about another of his classmates passing away, Ray Collins, I just wanted to correct the date these guys walked so proudly across that stage in the Music Hall to officially become Houston Police Officers.  We wives were so proud of that day too after all the weeks of hard study our husbands had done to reach that final step. I am sure you remember your special day too.
Thank you for your service.

I am the head of casting for Atlas Media Corp - we're a television production company that has produced many documentary crime series including "In the Line of Fire" which highlighted police heroism working with NYPD Chief Bill Bratton. 

We've also produced other crime series like "Dr G: Medical Examiner" "The Mind of a Murderer" and "Stalked" all for Investigation Discovery network.

Dr G took place in the Orlando pathology office and we did 8 seasons of that show. Our cameramen became licensed by the state of Florida to film crime scenes and in the autopsy room. We operate within the highest professional standards in the industry.

Contacting your office for a new series we're working on developing and wondering if you can help.

We are currently seeking and interviewing retired female detectives for a new prime time series on major cable. The series would be her narrating/talking about past cases. Homicides, stalking, sex crimes, kidnapping, etc. Only cases that led to convictions and on the public record.

We are seeking women with outgoing personalities, not shy around cameras with some great stories to tell. This is going to be pitched to a prime time cable networks that skew to a female audience. Ideally she's also under 55 years old.

I am contacting organizations like yours in various cities for possible candidates. If you know of someone great - I'd love to hear about it. 

If you do happen to know a woman the fits the bill for this - feel free to forward this message to them and they contact me directly if interested. I'm also happy to answer any questions if someone from your org wants to contact me. 

Thanks so much for your time and for any assistance you can provide.

I’m From The Government And I Am Here To Help You
Wednesday, September 30, 2015
Ronald Reagan made this statement as the most feared words you ever want to hear from your government, and he was so right.  Let me give you another example as to how they are here to help us.
I am a member or the NRA and in the October issue of The American Rifleman is a very interesting article involving many of us our friends and relatives.  I had heard about this before but after reading the article it becomes more clear as to how they want to help us.
The article states that if you are a veteran and/or collect Social Security you are in the crosshairs of the Federal Government.  The Dept. of Veterans Affairs along with the Social Security Adm. has created a background checking system and reporting anyone who has been declared incompetent to manage pension or disability payments and has assigned as fiduciary, someone to handle you financial affairs for whatever reason.  This information is forwarded to the FBI National Instant Criminal Background Check System better know as NICS.
In the article it explains how it works.  It states  “they can assign a “representative payee” to receive a beneficiary’s benefits either at the request of a beneficiary or at the initiation of the agency itself or someone that knows the beneficiary.  According to a former SSA employee, this process typically takes place voluntarily at the behest of the beneficiary or a loved one and if often for the sake of convenience.”
For instance, “elderly individuals may choose this option if they no longer drive, live far from a population center or have physical difficulty traveling to a post office or bank.  The assignment of a representative payee is typically perfunctory bureaucratic procedure offering no evidence that the person of diminished mental capacity whatsoever and it certainly does not rise to the level of “adjudication” as required by statue.  For those assigned a representative payee, this program will automatically assign them prohibited-person status and forward their name to NICS, with no due process or finding of dangerousness.”
The next statement is very troubling to me and should be to anyone who is thinking about helping someone.  “To SSA once you’ve been assigned a representative payee you’re in the same category as a violent felon and other prohibited persons and should be stripped or your Second Amendment protected right.”
All of this was accomplished by your president and by Executive Order.  He has a pen and a phone and that is all he needs.
The article gives more information and numbers of people that are affected by this giant gun-grabbing move by our government, who by the way wants to help us, but I think you get the jest of what is going on.
US Sen. John Cornyn, of our great state, has introduced a bill that provides some protection against the Obama administration’s bureaucratic overreach.  If you want to look at the bill it is under S2002, Title 3 Sec. 301-302-304 and 305.
Now, don’t you feel better because they are going to help us….I don’t think so.
