Meddling is their business and business is good. This month’s slate of control freaks includes a Connecticut pol who’s bent on regulating young earlobes and a Maryland public school district that would forbid adults from hugging kids other than their own children.

But this time the Nanny of the Month comes to us from Eastchester, New York where a local official wasn’t satisfied with outlawing traditional fastfood joints like McDonald’s and Burger King. He decided to kick it up a notch and shield locals from “fast casual” restaurants like Panera Bread and Chipotle (and to think these newcomers, with their earth tones and organic offerings, thought they could stave off the taste police!).

Presenting the Nanny of the Month for April 2013: Eastchester Supervisor Anthony Colavita!

A judge approved the appointment of the lawyer who represented convicted 1996 Olympics bomber Eric Rudolph to the legal defense team of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler in Boston yesterday approved Federal Public Defender Miriam Conrad’s request to hire Judy Clarke, who has represented some of America’s most infamous murder and terrorism convicts, including “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski, to expand the defense’s expertise in federal death penalty cases. Prosecutors haven’t said if they’ll seek a death sentence.

Researchers Have Stumbled On A Massive Lithium Mine That Could Meet All US Demand

April 30, 2013 by  
Filed under Economy

The U.S. currently imports more than 80% of the lithium it uses, with the silvery metal winding up in batteries from cell phones to electric cars.

According to a United States Geological Survey publication on lithium, “The only commercially active lithium mine in the United States was a brine operation in Nevada. The mine’s production capacity was expanded in 2012, and a new lithium hydroxide plant opened in North Carolina. Two companies produced a large array of downstream lithium compounds in the United States from domestic or South American lithium carbonate, lithium chloride, and lithium hydroxide. A U.S. recycling company produced a small quantity of lithium carbonate from solutions recovered during the recycling of lithium ion batteries.”

BOSTON BOMBINGS; Media Lawyers & Politicians Promote Legal Deception Of ‘Granting Miranda Rights’, There Is No Such Thing

April 30, 2013 by  
Filed under Americas

US Constitution (1920x1200)

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face, it’s just a god damned piece of paper!”- George W. Bush

 

(AE) – A great misconception has been spread all over the media, via “Left Wing” vs. “Right Wing” arguments, on whether a Magistrate Judge, under orders from DoJ, should have “issued Miranda Rights” to Boston Bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

I’ve heard various television lawyers and politicians (most are lawyers) making the most inaccurate legal statements such as these: “the Magistrate Judge GAVE HIM HIS RIGHTS“, “we ISSUED him Miranda Rights”, “we INVOKED his Miranda Rights”, “we GRANTED his Miranda Rights”.

There is no such thing as “Miranda Rights”, the proper term is “Miranda Warning”, and it’s a legal requirement to warn a person being charged with a crime of their US Constitution, 5th Amendment, “right to remain silent”.  Giving this warning does not GIVE YOU your rights, your rights are there and are granted by the US Constitution.  They do not INVOKE your rights, you INVOKE your rights by not speaking.

This is a very dangerous misconception being spread into the public consciousness… that you have NO RIGHTS unless they are GRANTED to you by some legal authority… this is a dangerous deception.

The short text below explains the “Miranda Warning”. The first video below shows FOX News monkeys (some of them lawyers) promoting the”Miranda Rights” misconception. The second video below shows Judge Andrew Napolitano explaining the legal concept perfectly.

 

Miranda Rights (reference.com):

In the United States, the Miranda warning is a warning given by police to criminal suspects in police custody, or in a custodial situation, before they are asked guilt-seeking questions relating to the commission of a crime.  A custodial situation is one in which the suspect’s freedom of movement is restrained although he or she is not under arrest.  An incriminating statement by a suspect will not constitute admissible evidence unless the suspect was advised of his or her “Miranda rights” and made a knowing, intelligent, and voluntary waiver of those rights.  (The term “Miranda rights” is somewhat misleading, as the mandated Miranda warning simply clarifies preexisting Constitutional rights.)  However, a 2004 Supreme Court ruling upheld state “stop-and-identify” laws, allowing police to require biographical information such as name date of birth, and address, without arresting suspects or providing them Miranda warnings.

The Miranda warnings were mandated by the 1966 United States Supreme Court decision in the case of Miranda v. Arizona as a means of protecting a criminal suspect’s Fifth Amendment right to avoid coercive self-incrimination (see right to silence).

2013.4.25 The Five Goes After The ‘Injustice Department’ For Reading Suspect Miranda Rights, ‘It’s Shameful’ (FOX News, youtube.com):

 

4/25/13 – Most of Thursday afternoon’s edition of Fox News’ The Five was dedicated to former White House press secretary Dana Perino’s extended interview with George W. Bush.  But towards the end of the show, the hosts got a chance to tackle the latest developments in the Boston bombing case, and they were not pleased.  Eric Bolling presented the reported scenario in which the suspect stopped speaking to FBI interrogators after a federal magistrate judge read him his Miranda rights.  “They warned Dzhokhar Tsarnaev that he had the right to remain silent so he did,” Bolling said.

Noting that a U.S. attorney was also in the hospital room when the FBI “stepped back,” Kimberly Guilfoyle said, “There you go, Eric Holder, the head of the Injustice Department.”  She said this was a call made by the “D.O.J.” because they “believe in just issuing Miranda rights.  They didn’t have to. What they needed to do was make sure America was safe.”  She later added, “It’s shameful.  Care more more about the safety of the country.

“Andrea Tantaros speculated that it was the Obama administration made the call for “political reasons,” a “knee-jerk reaction” to ward of critics claiming the suspects wasn’t being afforded his Constitutional rights.

Before signing off, the hosts briefly discussed the video interview that emerged today of the suspects’ mother claiming the bombing was a like a “play” with “paint instead of blood.”  Brian Kilmeade jumped in on this story, saying, “I don’t know what kind of drugs she is on and what her role is, but she evidently is the one who radicalized her son.”

Before the commercial break, you could hear Bob Beckel, off camera, suggest, “Mushrooms.”

 

2013.4.25 Shepard Smith & Judge Napolitano Go Off On Those Who Want To Strip Bombing Suspect’s Rights (FOX News, youtube.com):

 

‘We Have Our Rights!’

While addressing the news that Boston bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev had divulged information about the attacks during 16 hours of questioning before a judge arrived to read him his so called “Miranda rights” to remain silent and not incriminate himself, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith and senior judicial analyst Judge Napolitano tore into the concept of stripping the suspect of his rights solely because of the nature of his alleged crimes.  Smith has occasionally let fly his civil libertarian leanings (see the time he shouted “We do not fucking torture!” on-air), and this time he did so immediately at the outset of the segment:

“I want to get the facts out of the way here, because I think they are important:  The reading of the rights does not activate them.  The absence of the reading does not remove them.  They simply are.  They are rights and, he, like you and I, has the right to remain silent.

“What’s confusing that this?” he asked the judge, who in turn said “Nothing” and heaped praise upon Smith for his eloquence on the matter.  Napolitano then explained that the suspect was read his rights because of how, according to criminal procedure, he must be charged with a crime within 72 hours of being detained.  Once a charge is filed, the judge noted, you must bring them before a judge.  In Tsarnaev’s case, the judge had to be delivered to his bedside due to physical impairment.

“This is not rocket science,” the judge said, dismissing those (including his own Fox colleagues) who are appalled that the suspect was read his rights.  “This is criminal procedure 101.  It happens in every courthouse — state, local, and federal — every day in the United States of America.”  A clearly incensed Smith then asked:  “What is the ruckus?  It’s as if people think because they didn’t read him his rights, he did not have them.  He had them.  What they’re suggesting is that we shouldn’t have told him what his rights are.”  “That’s where they are wrong,” Napolitano responded before explaining why, exactly, the Supreme Court instituted what is now known as the Miranda rule for criminal procedure of civilians.

“I wonder how concerned you are that when these big, troubling events happen that bring us together as a nation and we mourn in unison, that we will go to the extremes of the Constitution and sometimes beyond it,” Smith asked to conclude the segment.

“I am profoundly concerned that when the evidence of guilt is overwhelming and the people are weeping because they have been deeply disturbed and hurt and harmed and maimed and killed, the government will find ways to go around the Constitution,” the judge responded.”

And when the government has done that, historically it has never worked,” he concluded.  “It has never brought about safety, it has only lessened freedom.”

 

Former CIA Operative Robert Baer: Boston Suspects Probably Didn’t Make The Bombs

How did a boxer and a college student with a major in nursing manage to make bombs that would detonate with sophisticated electronics circuitry?

electronics-circuitby Mario Andrade

April 30, 2013

DeadlineLive.info

Without special training, the Tsarnaev Brothers did not have the skills to make the detonators for the ‘pressure cooker bombs’ used in the Boston Marathon Bombing. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 19-year-old student at University of Massachusetts was majoring in nursing. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a boxer. Neither one of the alleged bombers had an electronics background. Former CIA Operative Robert Baer told CNN yesterday that someone else out there must’ve made the bombs.

Recent reports by the so-called mainstream media suggest that the pressure cooker bombs were detonated by remote control using ‘toy car’ hand-held controllers. If that really was the case, then the bombs would’ve require an electronic device capable of receiving the same frequency and signal emitted by the hand-held remote control, and yet, capable of igniting the ‘fireworks powder’ or gun powder inside the pressure cookers. The making of such device requires experienced personnel or someone with an electronics background.

 

Baer told CNN:

My opinion is, it’s the circuitry of the bomb. There’s a certain signature they are going to find on this. And I have seen multiple reports, “Wall Street Journal,” ABC News, CNN and on, that there — that police are looking at this as a sophisticated device which does not precisely follow the Internet plans that are in “Inspire” magazine. If that’s the case, there’s a master bomber out there. If there is a master bomber, is he in Dagestan or is he in the United States? Because if he’s in the United States, there’s a chance he could strike again.   I mean, if [the suspects] made [the bombs] off the Internet in their kitchens, they wouldn’t be carrying them to rural Massachusetts, outside of town. It just doesn’t make sense.   And in an attack like this, the last thing you want is a bomb to be a dud, because the plot is uncovered, everybody goes to jail, nothing happens, it doesn’t serve their purposes, their ideological purposes. So you want these things to be foolproof. And in order to have them foolproof, you need a bomb maker to do it or someone with a lot of practice. Otherwise, these things just don’t go after with that consistency that they managed to make happen.

If the Tsarnaev Brothers really made those bombs, then they woud’ve required an instructor, and perhaps a lot of practice hours in the field. Otherwise, the bombs must’ve been made by somebody else. They did NOT make those bombs based on the so-called instructions published by the ‘Al-Qaeda Magazine.’

In order to make a remote-controlled electronic detonating device, one is required to be familiar with electronic components, soldering, measuring voltages, currents and impedances with multi-meters, and perhaps checking the signal received by the device with an oscilloscope. These are skills that one does not learn in a boxing ring or at nursing school.

Ron Paul: Police manhunt for Boston Marathon bombing suspect scarier than attack

April 30, 2013 by  
Filed under Police State

Send this article to Sen Rand Paul!

Washington Times

Former Rep. Ron Paul said the law enforcement that swarmed around Boston in the days following the marathon bombings was scarier than the actual terrorist attack.

“The Boston bombing provided the opportunity for the government to turn what should have been a police investigation into a military-style occupation of an American city,” he said on the Lew Rockwell website, Politico reported. “This unprecedented move should frighten us as much or more than the attack itself.”

The terror attacks on April 15 in Boston killed three and injured 264.

Mr. Paul, a former libertarian political candidate who served in Congress as a member of the Republican Party, said the door-to-door searches police conducted in Watertown for the bombing suspects were particularly alarming.

They reminded of a “military coup in a far off banana republic,” he said, Politico reported. “Force lockdown of a city. Militarized police riding tanks in the streets. Door-to-door armed searches without warrant. Families thrown out of their homes at gunpoint to be searched without probable cause. Businesses forced to close. Transport shut down.”

Mr. Paul reminded the surviving suspect, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was ultimately discovered by a civilian, and not due to police crackdown, Politico reported.

“He was discovered by a private citizen, who then placed a call to the police,” he said. “And he was identified not by government surveillance cameras, but by private citizens who willingly shared their photographs with the police.”

CA Couple claim their sick five-month-old boy was taken away by police because they asked doctors for a second opinion

April 30, 2013 by  
Filed under Police State

The parents of a 5-month-old were shocked when police showed up to take away their infant boy after they told a doctor they wanted a second opinion.

Daily Mail

Caught on camera, the footage shows police entering the California home of Anna and Alex Nikolayev and asking Anna to hand over the baby.

‘I’m going to grab your baby,’ one of the several officers at the scene told Nikolayev, ‘And don’t resist and don’t fight me.’

Surprise: Anna and Alex Nikolayev wanted a second opinion after doctors at a Sacramento hospital made them too nervous leave son Sammy in their care

‘He grabbed my arm,’ the new mother told KXTV, ‘so I couldn’t take Sammy. And they took Sammy, and they just walked away.”

The saga began about two weeks ago when Sammy, who suffers from a heart murmur, began showing flu-like symptoms.

The Nikolayevs took him to Sutter Memorial Hospital in Sacramento, California, the hospital where Sammy had been receiving regular treatment for his heart condition.

According to Anna, the couple became alarmed after a nurse came in to give the baby antibiotics.

‘I asked her, “For what is that?” And she’s like, “I don’t know.”’

How, Anna wondered, was the woman working as a nurse but unaware of the purpose of a medication? Anna said a doctor would later tell her Sammy did not need antibiotics.

While still at Sutter, Sammy was admitted to the pediatric ICU for observation. Within a few days, doctors began discussing the possibility of heart surgery for the baby.

Motivated by fear, Anna took Sammy from the hospital without a proper discharge and admitted him to another hospital, Kaiser Permanente.

Taken: Though they got OK'd from a different hospital to take Sammy home, police let themselves in the next day and took Sammy into protective services

Harsh: Anna, left, said CPS told her Sammy was taken due to the Nikolayev’s ‘severe neglect’ and Alex, right, said he met police at the door and they threw him to the ground before entering the home and taking Sammy

 

‘I don’t want to have my baby have surgery in the hospital where I don’t feel safe,’ Anna explained.

Police then showed up at the second hospital.

‘They told us that Sutter was telling them so much bad stuff that they thought that this baby is dying on our arms,’ Anna said.

At Kaiser Permanente, the doctor indicated on the infant’s records that he was clinically safe to go home with the Nikolayevs and that there was no concern for the Sammy’s safety in their care. They went home.

On April 24, the police arrived at their house. Alex said he greeted them and was pushed to the ground when he asked if he was being arrested. They then took Sammy away.

According to Anna, a child protective services worker told her Sammy was taken away for ‘severe neglect’ but did not elaborate on the neglect.

KXTV reached out to Sutter Memorial and were told to contact child protective services. Reporters were told by CPS that they couldn’t comment on individual cases.

CPS spokesperson Laura McCasland told the ABC affiliate, ‘We conduct a risk assessment of the child’s safety and rely heavily on the direction of health care providers.’

The Nikolayevs were allowed an hour of visitation with Sammy on Thursday.

An outraged Alex told KXTV. ‘It seems like parents have no right whatsoever.’

‘We did everything,’ a tearful Anna agreed. ‘We went from one hospital to another. We just wanted to be safe, that he is in good hands.’

A court date hearing was set for April 29.

Uncertain: Sammy remains in the care of authorities, with his fate to be determined April 29

IS GRAHAM FULLER (CIA) AT THE CENTER OF THE BOSTON BOMBINGS?

April 30, 2013 by  
Filed under Commentary

***BREAKING***

And the Media continues to promote “estranged” uncle Ruslan….

CIA Father in Law connection just another strange coincidence?

The uncle of the two suspected Boston bombers in last week’s attack, Ruslan Tsarni, was married to the daughter of former top CIA official Graham Fuller
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham_Fuller

Ruslan Tsarni married the daughter of former top CIA official Graham Fuller, who spent 20 years as operations officer in Turkey, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Afghanistan, and Hong Kong. In 1982 Fuller was appointed the National Intelligence Officer for Near East and South Asia at the CIA, and in 1986, under Ronald Reagan, he became the Vice-Chairman of the National Intelligence Council, with overall responsibility for national level strategic forecasting.
http://www.madcowprod.com/?attachment_id=3832

What is known is that sometime in the early 1990’s, while she was a graduate student in North Carolina, and he was in law school at Duke, Ruslan Tsarnaev met and married Samantha Ankara Fuller, the daughter of Graham and Prudence Fuller of Rockville Maryland. Her middle name suggests a reference to one of her father’s CIA postings.https://www.facebook.com/ankara.fuller/about

On a more ominous note, Graham Fuller was listed as one of the American Deep State rogues on Sibel Edmonds’ State Secrets Privilege Gallery,. http://www.justacitizen.org/images/Gallery%20Draft2%20for%20Web.htm

Criminal activities were being protected by claims of State Secrets, she asserted. After Attorney General John Ashcroft went all the way to the Supreme Court to muzzle her under a little-used doctrine of State Secrets, she put up twenty-one photos, with no names.

One of them was Graham Fuller.

http://www.filmsforaction.org/news/boston_bombers_uncle_married_daughter_of_top_cia_official/

VIA OPPOSING VIEWS:

Ex-CIA agent Graham Fuller denied any connections between the CIA and the Boston bombing suspects after reports surfaced about his daughter once being married to the suspects’ uncle, Ruslan Tsarni.

Fuller confirmed that his daughter, Samantha A. Fuller, was married to Ruslan for three to four years in the 1990s, when his surname was then spelled Tsarnaev.

Fuller, former CIA officer in Turkey and vice chairman of the National Intelligence Council, told Al-Monitor that internet rumors about “possible connections between Ruslan and the Agency through me are absurd.”

“Samantha was married to Ruslan Tsarnaev (Tsarni) for 3-4 years, and they lived in Bishkek for one year where Samantha was working for Price Waterhouse on privatization projects,” said Fuller, who retired from the CIA in 1987. “They also lived in our house in [Maryland] for a year or so and they were divorced in 1999, I believe.”

He described Ruslan as an interesting son-in-law, but said he was homesick and moved back to Central Asia after the couple divorced.

“Like all Chechens, Ruslan was very concerned about his native land, but I saw no particular involvement in politics, [although] he did try to contact other Chechens around,” Fuller said. “He also felt homesick and eventually went back to Central Asia after the divorce. His English was shaky. (We always spoke Russian together).”

Fuller said he thinks he met father of the suspects, Aznor Tsarnaev, once in Kazakhstan, but he admitted his daughter knew the family better.

Of the Boston bombing, Fuller said: “I for one was astonished at the events, and to find myself at two degrees of separation from them.”

“I doubt [Ruslan] even had much to say of intelligence value other than talking about his own family’s sad tale of deportation from Chechnya by Stalin to Central Asia,” Fuller noted. “Every Chechen family has such stories.” Josef Stalin deported all Chechen men, women, and children from the Caucasus to Central Asia in February 1944.
