OPERATION ID: DAY 6 CAROUSELS OF CRIME SCHEDULE

KEEP Y OUR LETTERS COMING!keep your letters coming! KEEP YOUR LETTERS COMING!
Go to KPAM.COM, Victoria’s Page (click on photo), download the letter in pdf format, sign it, send it back to this address: Victoria Taft, OPERATION ID, KPAM, AM 860, 888 SW 5th Avenue, Suite 790, Portland, Or 97204

The Secretary of State and Governor should be requiring proof of citizenship to vote, receive benefits, and receive a driver’s license. We should ask no less in a post 9/11 world.

This year’s governor’s race is being impacted by this effort. Check out Ron Saxton’s latest salvo on illegal immigration here. All the republican candidates are of the same mind on this, but Saxton has plenty of dough to produce this video which you’ll find at the link.


These are places where state agencies have come together on a Saturday to offer free stuff to Mexican Nationals at the behest of the Mexican Government. See entries below on how ludicrous this is. But, thanks to RINO WATCH, here is the schedule of upcoming Carousels of Crime:

OPERATION ID: DAY 6

KEEP YOUR LETTERS COMING IN

Go to KPAM.COM here and get your letter. Print it. Sign it. Send it. Here: Victoria Taft, Operation ID, KPAM AM 860, 888 SW 5th Ave., Suite 790, Portland, Oregon 97204

Why don’t Oregon officials check to see if you’re a citizen before you vote, receive benefits, receive an Oregon Driver’s License? Seems simple enough to require it. But they don’t and,worse, they don’t check what documents they DO get.

Operation ID calls our Governor and Secretary of State to account for this abject failure. We call on them to require people signing up for the above items to prove they’re citizens.

Go here to get a copy of the letter. Print it. Sign it. Send it. We’ll present these letters to the Governor and Secretary of State and demand they change the way we do business in the state of Oregon.

SCANDAL! Not. NSA eavesdropping. Anything UNREASONABLE about that?

I heard a talk show host on a liberal station the other day talk about the president’s lack of constitutional authority to conduct the NSA wiretaps of those connected with Al Qaeda or whose deets were found in the personal effects of a bad guy.
This host said they were reading from the fourth amendment. And they elucidated thusly, “t
he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause
.”
The talk host then build their entire case upon this premise.

Notice anything amiss?
Here’s the way the fourt amendment
REALLY reads:
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against
unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
Makes a bit of a difference, doesn’t it? Once again I ask you: Is there anything UNREASONABLE about the searching (wiretapping) of people with connections to our enemy in time of war?
Here’s something else to chew on. When the pinheads tell you that warrantless searches are unprecendented and unconstitutional on their face, read them this list from National Review writer and former federal prosecutor,
Andrew McCarthy (whom I trying mightily to get on the show),

  1. Detain American citizens for investigative purposes without a warrant; Arrest American citizens, based on probable cause, without a warrant; Conduct a warrantless search of the person of an American citizen who has been detained, with or without a warrant;
  2. Conduct a warrantless search of the home of an American citizen in order to secure the premises while a warrant is being obtained;
  3. Conduct a warrantless search of, and seize, items belonging to American citizens that are displayed in plain view and that are obviously criminal or dangerous in nature;
  4. Conduct a warrantless search of anything belonging to an American citizen under exigent circumstances if considerations of public safety make obtaining a warrant impractical;
  5. Conduct a warrantless search of an American citizen’s home and belongings if another person, who has apparent authority over the premises, consents;
  6. Conduct a warrantless search of an American citizen’s car anytime there is probable cause to believe it contains contraband or any evidence of a crime;
  7. Conduct a warrantless search of any closed container inside the car of an American citizen if there is probable cause to search the car — regardless of whether there is probable cause to search the container itself;
  8. Conduct a warrantless search of any property apparently abandoned by an American citizen;
  9. Conduct a warrantless search of any property of an American citizen that has lawfully been seized in order to create an inventory and protect police from potential hazards or civil claims;
  10. Conduct a warrantless search — including a strip search — at the border of any American citizen entering or leaving the United States;
  11. Conduct a warrantless search at the border of the baggage and other property of any American citizen entering or leaving the United States;
  12. Conduct a warrantless search of any American citizen seeking to enter a public building;
  13. Conduct a warrantless search of random Americans at police checkpoints established for public-safety purposes (such as to detect and discourage drunk driving);
  14. Conduct warrantless monitoring of common areas frequented by American citizens;
  15. Conduct warrantless searches of American citizens and their vessels on the high seas;
  16. Conduct warrantless monitoring of any telephone call or conversation of an American citizen as long as one participant in the conversation has consented to the monitoring;
  17. Conduct warrantless searches of junkyards maintained by American citizens;
  18. Conduct warrantless searches of docks maintained by American citizens;
  19. Conduct warrantless searches of bars or nightclubs owned by American citizens to police underage drinking;
  20. Conduct warrantless searches of auto-repair shops operated by American citizens;
  21. Conduct warrantless searches of the books of American gem dealers in order to discourage traffic in stolen goods;
  22. Conduct warrantless drug screening of American citizens working in government, emergency services, the transportation industry, and nuclear plants;
  23. Conduct warrantless drug screening of American citizens who are school officials;
  24. Conduct warrantless drug screening of American citizens who are school students;
  25. Conduct warrantless searches of American citizens who are on bail, probation or parole.

WA SMOKING BAN: Unintended Consequences, Part 1

Fuggedabout the tavern, pool, bar owners whose businesses have suffered mightily due to the smoking ban in the state of Washington brought to you by the ‘we hate smokers’ and ‘we know better than you crowd.’ Now, according to the Seattle Weekly, they’re worried about the impact of a smoking ban at the HOMELESS SHELTERS. Well at least they’re upset on behalf of one group of people whose rights have been trampled by this ridiculous law. But, check it out, the best piece of info in this story is the revelation that homeless shelters, well, at least this one, have a “specially constructed smoking room” that homeless people cannot now use to smoke.

When Washington’s smoking ban went into effect last month, the worry in the social services community was that police might use it to hassle homeless people in Seattle for violating the 25-foot rule. As it turns out, it wasn’t the police they needed to be concerned about. Public Health– Seattle & King County is now going after the state’s largest homeless shelter for not stopping clients from smoking inside a specially constructed smoking room.

Go Bush Go! Fidel Castro is "punk’d!"


The US Mission in Havana, Cuba has been used as a big electronic sign of late urging Cubans to get rid of their communist dictator and listen to the words of Abraham Lincoln. While the media are most afraid that Fidel Castro will get cranky (here), the rest of the free world is cheering on chutzpah of the US! The full rundown is here at Gateway Pundit.
Before Castro could hold one of his marathon talks, he’d been punked!

The sign was activated as Castro began speaking in front of the building Tuesday morning, relaying global news and quotes including Abraham Lincoln’s: “No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.”

Castro glanced up at the building, saying, “They already turned on the little sign — the cockroaches are brave,” before starting his speech.

UPDATE: Supporting the Troops, This Columnist says Why Bother?

Joel Stein of the LA Times wrote an article here on his decision NOT to support the troops. Talk show host, attorney, former Reagan era justice department lawyer, Hugh Hewitt interviewed ol’ Joel. Read some of it below. Read the rest here.
Read his explanation, uh, here.

JS: Well, I think I said it clear in the column, too. I don’t have a…if you are for the war in Iraq, I think obviously, then you should support the troops. My problem is the people who are against the war and support the troops anyway, I think that’s kind of an excuse. I think that’s a way of making you feel better about your guilt, and I think that’s kind of a lazy form of pacifism.

HH: Did you support the troops when they delivered, say, tsunami relief off of aircraft carriers and via supply ships?

JS: Yeah, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to imply in the column that I don’t think we should have a military.

HH: I’m just wondering where you draw the line. So that mission is okay in your view?

JS: Yeah, I’m just simply saying that as a person whose against the Iraq war, I think all these I support the troop statements, I support the troops magnets, are a little hy

pocritical.
