The Iron Pipeline

The State of New York is always complaining that we here in NC are feeding the “Iron Pipeline.” Is this what they’re talking about?

A 32-year-old Raleigh man was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in federal prison Monday for his role in a scheme to use stolen credit card numbers to buy large amounts of relatively cheap North Carolina cigarettes and resell them in New York.

Naturally the criminal has a previous record.

Suspect

Don’t you think that $5.85 a pack in taxes is a bit excessive?

At what point do we give up on someone?

We hear a lot about prison overcrowding and how we need to reduce our prison population.

Police found a man stabbed to death early Monday in the 1000 block of North Miami Boulevard and were looking for suspects in the homicide, they said.

But we never hear about all the terrible people who are free to roam the streets.

Suspect

Have you noticed that very frequently the victims are criminals too?

Getting an early start in crime

He stole it, ran from the cops, and ended up crashing.

A robbery suspect was arrested Tuesday after wrecking the stolen vehicle while attempting to exit to South Tryon Street from I-77.

No one ever cares about the victims.

Suspect

But I can guarantee you that someone is complaining that this poor misunderstood youth shouldn’t be thrown in jail for his crimes.

Robbers got to rob

It’s not so much random crime as it is a lifestyle choice.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested and charged a man and a woman in a several University City area robberies that happened on Jan. 7, Jan. 17, and Jan. 20. A tip to Crime Stoppers about the vehicle driven by the suspects lead to the arrests.

It seems they made their living this way.

Suspect 1

It’s the job he knows how to do.

Gun Grabbers @NCGV plan ‘vigil’ for murdered felons

They say, “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade,” which sounds like a good idea. But what do you do when life hands you 25 dead bodies? How much sugar do you have to sprinkle on that to make it sweet?

Apparently North Carolinians Against Gun Violence (now another subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg, Inc) has decided to find out how much you are willing to swallow. Take a 25 dead bodies, hide the histories of half of them, stack the innocent children on top and maybe they’ve got themselves a winning argument for gun control.

NCGV is “partnering” with the Religious Coalition for a Nonviolent Durham, another shadow gun grabber group to “honor” these Durham victims of violence.

NCGV Vigil names

I thought it might be a good idea to see who it was they were “honoring.”

  1. Antonio Dixon
  2. Alfredo Jobel
  3. Carolyn Robinson Hemingway
  4. Jeffery Lamar Dawes
  5. Shontina Nakeisha Williams
  6. Juan Carlos Ruiz
  7. Marquise Keshawn Mangum
  8. Derek Huggins Jr
  9. Rakwon Smith
  10. Breon McCallum
  11. Haywood Jabbar Downey
  12. Marcus Anthony Keith
  13. Holly Martez Lyons

Thirteen of the 25 names used by NCGV to attack your civil rights were people with adult criminal records, 9 of them Felons.

They hoped you would never notice.

I made sure to point these names out to Grass Roots North Carolina. They’ve turned it into an Alert. It looks like weather will cancel the vigil which was rescheduled for Thursday the 26th of February. Perhaps a little outrage on by the citizens for “honoring” a bunch of criminals in among the real victims will cause them to reconsider this whole sordid thing.

You can let NCGV know what you think on their Facebook page. Make sure to give them the link to this blog post.

Indecent liberties

Someone likes to take what he wants.

A Huntersville man has been charged with two counts of indecent liberties with a 14-year-old girl in east Lincoln County.

But then he has a track record of taking things that don’t belong to him.

Suspect

Some people can’t be fixed.

The #MuslimLivesMatter and #ChapelHillShooting hashtags are a sophisticated social media campaign

This is the first time I’ve seen the power of the fully operational Death Star Muslim social media campaign. A random shooting in Durham County becomes a cause célèbre for Muslims around the world.

Let’s have a little timeline. The first 911 call of shots fired came in at 5:11 PM on Tuesday the 10th of February. At 6:15 am the next morning I got mentioned on Twitter.

I’m out walking my dog, and I scratched my head wondering what the heck the #ChapelHillShooting was. So I backtracked the tweets, checking out @RBPundit. I found a raging hashtag war with #MuslimLivesMatter and #ChapelHillShooting getting tweeted all over the place. They were pushing the “Muslims murdered by Christian Terrorist, Western Media Silent!” Then I found this.

Killer of 3 NC Muslim Students Was Hardcore Anti-Religion Atheist Progressive A horrific triple homicide was committed yesterday in Chapel Hill, NC, as three Muslim students were apparently murdered by a deranged anti-religion progressive.

Look at the time stamp. February 11 at 2:18 in the morning. Even if that was 2:18 Pacific time, that would still be only 12 hours after the first shots fired call. It points to the Raleigh newspaper, The News and Observer.

CHAPEL HILL — Police charged a Chapel Hill man Wednesday with first-degree murder in the deaths of three Muslim students in a quiet neighborhood near Meadowmont, just south of N.C. 54.

That’s date stamped Tuesday the 10th, so it was no more than 6 hours after the first shots fired. Let that sink in for a minute. The “Christian Terrorist” (and that’s a direct quote of many, many tweets I saw) meme had gone around long enough that someone at PJ Media had looked up the guy’s Facebook page and found out that he was an atheist, and a militant one. And that rebuttal was posted no later than 12 hours after the shooting, and more likely only 9 hours. By the time I saw the #ChapelHillShooting hash tag on Twitter at 6:15 AM, there were thousands of “Why is the Western media hiding this terror attack on Muslims!” tweets. This, as a result of a spontaneous movement is frankly impossible. It cannot have happened that way at all. I’ve traced back tweets as far as I am able and have found “Western media Silent!” tweets at 1am Eastern. That basically can not have happened without some large group pushing the meme.  

So it looks like right around 1AM on the 11th, about 8 hours after the first shots fired 911 call, the Twitter campaign takes off, pushing a narrative of “Islamophobia.”

By now, however, we all know that the shooter was not a “Christian Terrorist,” despite all the claims on Twitter

Here’s what I see. This is a campaign to push the idea that Muslims are the victims of “Islamophobia” in the west and especially in America. I believe that this campaign is a direct response to the #IamCharlieHebdo hashtag. It’s a direct attack on the west, with the Muslims attempting to regain the mantle of “Victim” by attempting to portray everyone racist and bigoted because the victims in this incident were Muslims.

We were played. And they did a fantastic job of it.

I spoke about this in The Squirrel Report Podcast, which I have embedded in this post. The discussion of this incident starts at the 1 hour 2 minute mark. It is very much NOT SAFE FOR WORK. The language in this podcast is very strong. It is tagged explicit on iTunes, so be warned.
