Jerry Buell suspended from Mount Dora High School, Facebook comments about gay marriage, Mount Dora, Florida, First Amendment rights

“If in the opinion of the People, the distribution or modification of the Constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation, for through this in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.”…George Washington

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”…Abraham Lincoln

The US Constitution has been trampled on again. Jerry Buell, a teacher at Mount Dora High School in Florida, was suspended for exercising his First Amendment Rights on his personal time.

From an email from American Family Association August 22, 2011.

“A Florida teacher has been suspended and removed from the classroom in Mount Dora, Florida, for comments made on his Facebook page against homosexual “marriage.” Liberty Counsel will be representing the teacher in court.

In response to New York’s passage of a same-sex marriage bill, Jerry Buell criticized the new law in a pair of Facebook posts. He wrote, “If they want to call it a union, go ahead. But don’t insult a man and woman’s marriage by throwing it in the same cesspool of whatever. God will not be mocked. When did this sin become acceptable?”

Just minutes later, he added, “I will never accept it because God will never accept it. Romans chapter one.”

This reference to Scripture and man-woman marriage has now been labeled as a “code ethics violation” by school officials.

Mr. Buell is currently subject to an Inquisition-type investigation. The school will not let him back into the classroom, says a school official, “until we do all the interviews and do a thorough job of looking at everything – past or previous writings.”

Says Mr. Buell, “It was my own personal comment on my own personal time on my own personal computer in my own personal house, exercising what I believed as a social studies teacher to be my First Amendment rights.”

It’s worth noting that Florida’s constitution prohibits recognition of same-sex marriage, the exact view Mr. Buell supports. In essence, he is now being accused of hate speech for expressing a view enshrined in the state constitution.”

From One News Now August 22, 2011.

“Harry Mihet, the Liberty Counsel attorney representing Buell, notes that the 22-year-plus veteran of teaching is a very popular and successful teacher.
 
“In fact, he was elected as teacher of the year last year precisely because he has an outstanding reputation — not only for being an excellent teacher, but also for loving each and every student who comes across in his classroom regardless of the student’s status or lifestyle or orientation,” the attorney shares.
 
Mihet says it is worth noting that the person who filed the complaint has never been a student in Buell’s classroom. The school is concerned that homosexual students might feel uncomfortable or somehow threatened in his classes. Mihet comes to his client’s defense.
 
“It is an outrageous insinuation that somehow being against homosexual marriage disqualifies you from being a public servant,” he responds. “[That’s] an idea that is so repugnant to the Constitution and to the First Amendment freedom of speech, one of our most cherished freedoms that is supposed to enable us to speak out on matters of public importance.”
 
Mihet believes the school district’s response to Buell’s comments is unconstitutional. Liberty Counsel is demanding that he be immediately reinstated with an apology from the school district.”

It appears that not only do members of Congress need to read the US Constitution but also “educators.” The Constitution should be read in every school across the nation at the beginning of each school year.

  1. —– Direct Quote from “Larry, the Cable Guy”

    “Even after the Super Bowl victory of the New Orleans Saints, I have noticed a large number of people implying with bad jokes that Cajuns aren’t smart. I would like to state for the record that I disagree with that assessment. Anybody that would build a city 5 feet below sea level in a hurricane zone and fill it with Democrats that can’t swim is a damn genius.”

  2. I guess we can expect Eric Holder to jump in at the command of O’bummer on the side of the gay righter’s…..this is nothing but a test of every one’s First Amendment rights. If Mr. Buell loses this one, all of America is next!

    This is exactly why PUBLIC education is a failure….if I had a kid in public education, I would take it out and home school. At least it would get moral instruction which is lacking in public schools.

  3. http://news.yahoo.com/does-rick-perry-texas-success-185553540.html

    Rather than trashing the state in order to demean its governor, perhaps the mainstream media should be thinking about what the Lone Star’s success story means for the rest of the country.

    Texas has done what most of other states — notably the blue coastal ones — have failed to do: create jobs. Over the past decade Texas has created 2.1 million jobs — while New York, California, Massachusetts and Illinois have all lost jobs.

    Its relative performance since 2009 has been even more stellar, producing nearly 40% of all new jobs in the U.S. Its unemployment rate stands at 8.2, well below the national average of 9.1 — an outstanding feat given the fact that the state grew 20%, twice the national average, over the decade. Texas is creating jobs for a growing workforce, while other states like New York or Massachusetts struggle to keep up with stagnant or even declining ones.

  4. http://news.yahoo.com/global-warming-hoax-winning-issue-rick-perry-194900623.html

    Perry also seems to be positioned well politically on the global warming controversy. A recent Gallup Poll suggested that more numbers of Americans are becoming skeptics about man-made global warming and its implications.

    This in turn caused a recent obscenity laced tirade by former Vice President Al Gore in which he laid into global warming skeptics. Compared to the even tempered language used by Rick Perry, it seems that the Texas governor has the rhetorical high ground as well.

    All of this suggests that despite the finger wagging on the part of some in the media, Perry has a winning issue.

    Perry Plays Obama, Media Like a Fiddle

    When Gov. Rick Perry returns to Austin this weekend, he’s likely to return to a hero’s welcome. He launched his campaign in a flawless rollout in South Carolina last weekend, captured the top spot in Rasmussen by double-digits, and is off to a dominating start in the GOP primary. Perry’s welcome will take all of that into account, as well as something else: Those of us who have watched him campaign have seen him blitz like this before, and in the past it has been a prelude to a long, entertaining campaign and ultimate victory.

    The first week since Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced his run for the presidency has gone something like this: Perry says something provocative, media pounces, Obama reacts, and Perry either re-states what he said or ups the ante by saying something new and just as provocative. The media wonders aloud whether Perry is able to stay on script and establishment Republicans like Karl Rove toss out warnings that Perry may have gone too far. All of that misses the possibility, which I treat as fact, that Rick Perry knows exactly what he’s doing and this first week has gone exactly as he expected.

    What many, and I include Rove and Huckabee and his other critics in this, don’t seem to understand is, this is how Rick Perry campaigns. And wins. He understands the media and his opponent better than they understand themselves. The media that fretted when Perry shot a coyote last year missed the fact that most Texans reacted to that same story with something along the lines of “The governor packs heat and protected his dog while jogging? Cool.” Perry is using the media’s own elitism and lack of connection with mainstream America against it, and against Obama, turning both against each other.

    Take the Bernanke comment, for example. Perry gave a little Texas talk and said it would be just about treasonous for the Fed chairman to just print more money to deal with the national’s fiscal problems. While what Perry said struck some as over the top, it focused all of the GOP primary attention on him and pulled the media into covering him, immediately. And on substance, for whatever that’s worth in today’s politics, Perry has a strong point. The comment also established a marker: Rick Perry will not govern in the ineffectual way Obama has. The remark followed up on his very successful rollout, in which Perry laid out his vision and to a great extent laid into Obama’s. The Bernanke comment, then, is a follow-up hit on the current administration’s failed policies, delivered in a way that forces the media to start treating the race as Obama vs Perry, not Obama vs Romney or, maybe more importantly at this stage, Obama vs Generic Republican.

    Perry’s comment about the military preferring a commander in chief who served in the military worked in a similar way. Obama has a famously thin skin. The media can’t help but take a comment like Perry’s and ask Obama directly about it. Obama’s quip that Perry should be given the benefit of the doubt was a lame try to mask the fact that what Perry said is unarguably true — all other things being equal, military members would tend to prefer a president who served over one who didn’t. That’s just a fact, and one for which Obama has no real response since he did not serve and Perry did, as a pilot in the Air Force. Perry’s comment draws that distinction out and sets Obama up for future hits on that key difference in their backgrounds (and, by the way, a difference that separates Perry from most of the GOP field as well). Perry followed that up with yet another jab, on Obama’s failed policies. Bam-bam, Obama has just been hit twice by Perry from two directions — background and success in office — for which he has no response, and in which Perry holds obvious superiority.

    Who is controlling the conversation between Obama, the media, and the voters here? Rick Perry is. And Perry is showing that unlike all of the other GOP candidates, he is hitting Obama in ways that force him to respond. Perry can’t and won’t be ignored because he knows where and how to hit.

    This is the same kind of thing Perry and his campaign did last year to Democrat gov nominee Bill White. Like Obama, White thinks very highly of himself, and like Obama, White also has a very thin skin. That combination makes for an opponent you can box into responding on your command. So Perry playfully jabbed at White throughout the entire campaign, always getting under White’s skin, forcing the media to cover the attacks and ask White about them, and ultimately forcing White to respond to Perry rather than advance his own agenda. Toward the end of the 2010 campaign, White was responding directly to minutiae just as prominently as he responded to the Perry camp’s major attacks, wasting valuable campaign airtime and looking petty and defensive.

    Based on Perry’s first week, he has something similar in mind for Obama. It’s likely to work, because neither Obama nor the media can help themselves.

  7. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/sarah-palin-rick-perry-friendship-stop-mama-grizzly/story?id=14359204

    Palin spoke about Perry on both legs of her bus tour. On the first leg in Baltimore, she praised the Texas governor, saying she thought he would make a “fine candidate” and the two “have a lot in common.”

    Palin added, “I really like him.”

    The next week she defended Perry and his headline-grabbing attack on the Federal Reserve in which he said that it would be “almost treasonous” for Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke to increase the money supply before the 2012 election.
    “More power to Rick Perry for calling it like he saw it,” Palin said on Fox News last week. “And you know, he used some of that rascal type of rhetoric that he uses there in Texas and evidently the president took some issue to that.

    “I just wish that President Obama would stay focused on what really matters,” Palin continued. “Stay focused and quit picking on other people like Rick Perry who is just going to continue to call it like he sees it.”

    Unlike other political friendships, their relationship actually dates back to before the last election, although Palin did back Perry in his gubernatorial primary last year against Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas. She declared her support in a letter to Texas GOP women, saying her choice stays “true to conservative principles even when others think the party needs to go a different direction. I like that about him: He doesn’t care which way the wind blows, he acts on his beliefs.”

    Palin added in the letter that Perry, “walks the walk of a true conservative. And he sticks to his guns, and you know how I feel about guns!”

    What would it cost to buy the support of just about every nationally-syndicated neocon talk show host in America? About $19.5 Billion, which is what Mitt Romney’s private equity firm, Bain Capital, and Thomas H. Lee Partners have agreed to pay in a leveraged buyout agreement with Clear Channel Communications, the largest radio station owner in the country.

    Ed. Note — The original story we posted on this topic inferred that Bain Capital had recently purchased Clear Channel Communications. That is not true. The transaction took place in November of 2006. The facts remain that Bain earns a share of Clear Channel’s profits and that Mitt Romney, while a retired partner, still earns money from the private equity firm.

    Limbaugh’s program syndicate is Clearchannel/Premier Radio. Romney co-founded Bain Capital and still owns mega-stocks. Bain Capital purchased/owns Clearchannel 2006. Clearchannel is the parent company for Limbaugh syndicated co: Premier Radio Networks. ps: is syndicate for Glen Beck & DRUDGE too…and others..see link:

  12. Everybody knows, or should know, that Europe’s, Japan’s, the US, and probably China’s,too, debts will Never, Ever be paid back at current value. They will either be defaulted on or the gov’ts will simply print up trillions of dollars out of thin air to pay the debts back. The second case is more likely.

    So the pols in power are hell bent to pretend otherwise, and to kick the can down the road, in their efforts to maintain power. They know that, even as bad as their poll numbers are right now, when it all implodes, and it will, that whoever is in power will likely never be elected again for a generation.
    And that is why you have every democrat and every pundit like Krugman continually screaming for stimulus, hoping that they can kick the can down the road, at least until there is a republican in power that they can then let the collapse commence and blame it all on him.

    I sincerely hope that there is not anyone reading this blog that actually thinks the debts the gov’ts owe is ever going to be paid back. At least at current currency values.

    The gold market knows. Is the gold market a bubble? Well, if you think it is, you must also think that gov’t deficits are a bubble and they will also soon pop.

They practice their SICK behavior, and when they contract AIDS it is always the fault of society who allegedly DROVE THEM TO THEIR FILTHY PRACTICE. In truth they LOVE EVERY second of their DEVIATE LIFE STYLE,but it is American taxpayers who end up picking up the tab for their chosen behavior. Buell is absolutely right,but you can be sure that he will be attacked by the damn QUEERS, again,and again and again. This is primarily why some members of the 1st Marine Division which was then headquartered at Camp Pendleton Calif, declared OPEN SEASON on the SEXUAL DEVIATES. Some of them had tried to PROPOSITION some of the Marines. In the 1950s propositioning a Marine could be rewarded with a BADLY BENT HEAD.

    By 2010 the classical evangelicals were already in a serious hunt for a candidate. They had rejected Sarah Palin as a charismatic. She had switched to one of their own Bible churches, but they could see through that. She and her family had been Assemblies of God in Wasilla.

    They begged for Mike Huckabee to come back, even though they had split with him over some past squabble last time. It had been their best chance to have a classical evangelical in the White House and a former Southern Baptist pastor at that. The charismatics had helped him pull an upset win for him in Iowa but his own classical evangelicals sat on their hands in South Carolina.

    At one point they were entertaining the idea of supporting Newt Gingrich. Yes, married four times but at least he didn’t speak in tongues. And then sun rose on Michele Bachmann. And they knew she could win it all and drag all of their churchgoers along with her. And they had to act fast. And that is when David Lane found Rick Perry. And came to him with money and churches and support on a tray.

    American Way: Getting ugly in Texas – Karl Rove and the Democrats desperate to stop the Rick Perry posse

    The change of heart has been prompted by the appearance on the national scene of Governor Rick Perry. He was branded as “not presidential” by Rove, chiding him for his “very unfortunate comment” in suggesting that it would be “almost treasonous” for Ben Bernanke , chairman of the Federal Reserve, to print more money before the 2012 election. Perry had added that Bernanke might get treated “pretty ugly” if he visited Texas.

    Next, President Barack Obama’s apparatchik’s began briefing reporters about how they really fear Mitt Romney, the nominal Republican front runner, who finished a dismal third in 2008.

    The one-time Massachusetts governor is a former centrist who experienced a miraculous conversion to conservativism. He was for abortion rights before he was against them, signed a state health-care bill that became a prototype for Obama’s national reform and is distrusted by Tea Party activists. Many mainstream Christians view his Mormon religion as a cult.

    Obama made it clear on his campaign plane in 2008 that he was much more eager to face Mr Romney in the general election than John McCain, despite the irascible former Vietnam prisoner-of-war’s obvious defects as a candidate. Now, however, Team Obama is portraying Mr Romney as a titan. “I was praying Perry would get into the race,” one former White House aide close to the Obama campaign was quoted as saying.

    Ironically, however, Rove’s intervention may well help Perry, whose biggest vulnerability is being viewed by an electorate still dismayed by the Bush presidency as another Texas governor who acts and sounds like the last one sent to Washington.

    Perry, an uncompromising conservative who is now leading the Republican field in some polls, has already transformed the presidential race. Although some of his less politic statements have caused much tut-tutting amongst establishment Republicans, they chime with what he calls the “indignant” mood in the country.

    By Chuck Norris
    August 23, 2011

    Excerpt:

    “President Barack Obama wants you to believe that America’s Founding Fathers were in error when they gave citizens the right to bear arms.

    The Obama administration and even its Mexican counterpart have manipulated public opinion to believe that the cartel drug wars are being fueled largely by American guns. In support of that spin, they are trying to impose a new regulation that requires licensed firearms dealers in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California to report to the federal government whenever someone buys from them more than one semiautomatic rifle with certain characteristics.

    Obama’s Department of Justice essentially is amending the Second Amendment by changing the rules for gun sales in border states. While working under the guise of stopping illegal contraband and fighting drug cartels, the White House in reality is further imposing its gun control agenda on the American public through back-door rule-making. This is just one more example of the feds exceeding their powers and avoiding congressional permission. It is also another showing of complete disregard for the Constitution.”

I think it registered 6.6 with numerous aftershocks for a long time. If you’re from So Cal, it just becomes an unnerving way of life. I remember telling my hubby, whenever you’d feel the jolt or the rolling, everyone would tend look up to the hanging light fixtures to see if they were swaying before you made any mad dashes, lol.

    By Martin Gould and Kathleen Walter
    August 19, 2011

    Excerpt:

    “It’s mind-boggling,” Brewer told Newsmax, claiming that Obama has an eye toward capturing Hispanic votes at next year’s election. “I believe this whole document is going to backfire on the Obama administration.

    “He is looking for a community out there that he thinks will support him and reelect him. But there are a lot of Latinos, a lot of Hispanics in America, that came here the legal way, love our country and they followed the rule of law.

    “We are in big trouble and the president is feeding into it. I wish he would do his job as president and let Congress do their job.

    “We were all hoping he would come up with a job plan. But with this latest document on amnesty, he has really come forth with a job plan but I didn’t know that it was going to be for the illegals.”

    Earlier Brewer had claimed that the president was acting like an absolute monarch by agreeing to the new policy.

    “The Obama administration cannot get its amnesty schemes through Congress, so now it has resorted to implementing its plans via executive fiat,” she said. “We need to remind President Obama that we elected a president that serves beneath the law and did not anoint a king that is above the law.”

    Brewer was joined by Texas Republican Reps. Michael McCaul and Lamar Smith. “It’s just the latest attempt by this president to bypass the intended legislative process when he does not get his way,” McCaul said. Smith added, “The Obama administration should enforce immigration laws, not look for ways to ignore them.”

    And Florida Rep. Allen West jumped into the fray, too, calling for a House investigation into the guidelines. In an interview with Newsmax.TV, he accused Obama of “shredding the constitution” with the new guidelines. “It is a form of amnesty and it does go against our Constitution and it very much concerns me because now we are rewarding people for an illegal activity,” he said.

    “Think about the strain that is going to come on the types of services and things that we have to provide,” West added, saying aliens are getting “a free pass.”

    Brewer, who succeeded Napolitano in the governor’s office in Phoenix, said, “The plan amounts to backdoor amnesty for hundreds of thousands — if not millions — of illegal aliens. The president is encouraging more illegal immigration at the exact moment we need federal focus on border security.”

    She pointed to a speech Obama made to the Hispanic civil rights group, the National Council of La Raza, in Washington on July 25, in which he rejected the idea of imposing immigration reform without reference to Congress.

    “He said, ‘Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. And, believe me, right now dealing with Congress, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.’

    “President Obama got it right last month and got it really wrong today,” Brewer said. “Over the next 15 months, I’m certain we’ll hear a lot of talk from the Obama administration about its concern for border security. Those of us who truly care about the rule of law will remember the president’s actions.”

    Under the plan, Homeland Security and the Justice Department will review all deportation cases to see whether they meet 19 different criteria. About 300,000 deportation cases now under consideration will be included, she said.

    Among factors that would be considered favorably are if the potential deportee has been in the United States since childhood, whether they have sought higher education or have served in the military and whether they are caregivers.

    The White House insists that the plan is neither a path to citizenship or permanent legal status nor an amnesty. Cecilia Munoz, the White House intergovernmental affairs director, wrote on the White House blog that, with an estimated 10 million people in the country illegally, limited resources should be focused on deporting “people who have been convicted of crimes or pose a security risk.”

    Munoz said that since 2008 there has been a 70 percent increase in the number of deportations of people with criminal records while the number of people deported who have no record has gone down.

    Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies, said, “The message is that as long as you keep your nose clean and do not commit a serious crime, then you don’t have to worry about immigration law enforcement. That’s a pretty strong incentive to stick around.

    “It really is attempting to achieve by executive fiat what the Congress won’t do and the American people don’t want, and that really requires a lot of audacity.”

    TJ-My friends in NC felt it.
    I felt something early afternoon yesterday.

  46. Ms Helga, yes I agree the animals can feel the quake before you can. Also here in Texas, I watch the wildlife before impending severe weather, they will usually indicate something bad is coming. We used to catch snakes just before a low pressure system would come in. They seemed to move for higher ground and the birds just disappear.

  47. Ms Helga, I took feed out to my birdfeeders an hour and a half prior to the quake and there was no activity at all. My cat come running back with me and I thought “your not going to like it back here today…there are no birds.” I see doves out now.

    Obama Release Your Records
    August 23, 2011

    “OBAMA’S INELIGIBILITY: PREPARE TO DEFEND AMERICA – PERP WALK OBAMA OUT OF WHITE HOUSE”

    By Lawrence Sellin

    Excerpt:

    “If Congress and federal law enforcement agencies will not abide by the Constitution and the rule of law, then ordinary Americans will go to Washington, D.C. and drag that criminal out of our White House.

    We will not allow Barack Hussein Obama to contest the 2012 election.

    According to the Constitution, he has never been eligible for the office of President.

    Obama has presented a forged Certificate of Live Birth in order to continue perpetrating a criminal fraud on the American people.

    He has committed identity theft by using a Social Security Number not issued to him. He has committed a felony by forging his Selective Service registration.

    Every member of Congress and all federal law enforcement agencies know it.

    They have violated their oaths of office and abdicated their responsibility to support and defend the Constitution and uphold the rule of law.

    Some have committed Misprision of Felony by actively engaging in a cover-up of Obama’s crimes.

    There are only two kinds of people left in Congress, the complicit and the cowards.

    Samuel Adams wrote:

    “Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt.”

    Pretending that nothing is wrong and waiting for Obama to be defeated in 2012, as the complicit and the cowards are doing, is an endorsement of the culture of corruption in Washington, D.C.”

    […]

    “It is time to take down Obama and take back our government.

    At the request of Tea Party leaders in Arizona, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has promised to investigate the validity of Barack Obama’s purported long-form birth certificate in a determination of the president’s eligibility for the county’s 2012 election ballot.

    Petitions must now be submitted to every county sheriff in the country to investigate the possibility that a crime has been committed against the state officials, who must decide whether to put Obama’s name on the ballot.

    If obliged to do so, we must be prepared to march on Washington, D.C. and occupy our White House and our Congress.

    We will no longer be ignored. We will no longer be ridiculed. We will not let this travesty and treachery to persist.”

    As the Declaration of Independence states:

    “In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.”

    “all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”

    It is the dishonest and incompetent political parasites, desperately clinging to the reins of power, who are pushing the American people toward open rebellion.

    It is those politicians and their collaborators, who compel us to stand our ground, not against our Constitution, but against their perversion of our Constitution and their disregard for the rule of law.

    If we do not rise up against Obama’s usurpation of power and the endemic corruption of the professional political class, our silence will be construed as a willing and complete surrender of our rights.

    Congress is complicit, law enforcement is compromised and the judiciary is willfully impotent.

    The battle will not be won through those means, but in the court of public opinion and fought by American patriots directly against the corrupt political elite.

    Let us be encouraged and fortified by the words of John Adams:

    “A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.”

    ******************************************
    ps, Pat 1789, nothing yet at Orly Taitz, re Obama,at present, I will continue to monitor for info.

  50. Official: 5.9 quake centered to the northwest of Richmond, VA. We felt it in downtown Boston. This was a ‘shallow focus’ quake (less than 80 kilometers deep) so that’s why it was felt for such a great distance and also why the shaking seemed more intense; it was centered very close to the surface.

    Here’s the U.S. Geological Survey’s earthquake report:

    Region: VIRGINIA
    Geographic coordinates: 37.881N, 77.952W
    Magnitude: 5.9 Mw
    Depth: 0 km
    Universal Time (UTC): 23 Aug 2011 17:51:04
    Time near the Epicenter: 23 Aug 2011 13:51:04
    Local standard time in your area: 23 Aug 2011 12:51:04

    Location with respect to nearby cities:
    14 km (9 miles) SSW (195 degrees) of Mineral, VA
    17 km (10 miles) SSE (165 degrees) of Louisa, VA
    23 km (14 miles) NE (52 degrees) of Columbia, VA
    58 km (36 miles) NW (312 degrees) of Richmond, VA
    141 km (88 miles) SW (216 degrees) of Washington, DC

  51. I agree. Having lived in LA & experienced quakes in that range I don’t see what all the excitement. Hurricances cause much greater damage that is what the people on the east coast should beware of.

  52. Felt the earthquake pretty strongly here north of Philly. House rattled for 15-20 seconds and person in basement office felt ground shaking. Neighbors reported the same. Very unexpected in these parts but the depth of only .6 mile kept it moving on up. Apparently evacuated buildings in Philly. Otherwise, beautiful day here! Originally thought it was some huge kind of truck in the neighborhood or some freak storm coming up with sudden strong winds. Go figure! “The times, they are a changin”!

  53. ps….heard there was a 2.something aftershock, but nothing of course here from that.

    “OBAMA’S INELIGIBILITY: PREPARE TO DEFEND AMERICA – TOTAL LEADERSHIP FAILURE”

    By Lawrence Sellin
    Wednesday, August 17, 2011

    Excerpt:

    “Just how many felonies does Barack Hussein Obama need to commit before anyone in the US Government speaks out?

    Millions of Americans are asking that question.

    We now learn that the Cook County Assessor’s Office confirms that Obama has likely committed real estate and tax fraud in a deal with
    Tony Rezko in Chicago.

    Add to that Presidential eligibility fraud, birth certificate fraud, Social Security Number fraud and Selective Service registration fraud.

    When will Congress launch an investigation into the criminal and usurper in the Oval Office? When will senior members of the military or the federal law enforcement agencies stand by their oaths to support and defend the Constitution?

    The answer is “never.” There has been a colossal failure of leadership. We have a government littered with careerists, sycophants, cowards, liars and the greedy. As they see it, ordinary Americans only exist to serve their interests.

    Senior members of the US Government are part of a criminal conspiracy to obstruct justice and hide the truth about Obama from the American people. The mainstream media are actively colluding with these corrupt officials through a campaign of disinformation and psychological operations to denigrate and discredit anyone who demands the truth about Obama.

    There is an ever-increasing list of examples demonstrating the growth of oppression of ordinary citizens and American elective totalitarianism.

    One such example is Tim Adams, who was the Senior Elections Clerk for the city and county of Honolulu during the 2008 presidential election.

    His crime was speaking the truth, a truth which threatened Obama’s election, the radical agenda of the far-left wing of the Democratic Party and the exposure of criminal acts by high government officials.

    Tim has now documented his experiences in a Master’s thesis published by Western Kentucky University.”

    […]

    “In every sense of the term, we have a rogue government which is no longer constrained by the rule of law and has declared war on the American people.

    The faux-leaders in Congress will continue to posture, position themselves, cut secret deals, nod and wink at each other. It is political incest, incompetence and gross negligence.

    If the cover-up continues and Obama is permitted to run in 2012, his forces will unleash the most racial, polarizing and potentially violent campaign in US history. Expect to see organized flash mobs used as a method of political intimidation.

    We are now perched on the edge of an abyss. The survival of our republic is at stake. We must join together and stand against those who will destroy our country.

    The Obama criminal conspiracy must be exposed and taken down now.

    There will be no second chance.”

    I agree Patriots should be presenting petitions with criminal information about bo and his criminal cohorts to DA’s and Sheriffs in every conservative County in the US.
    Look for bo to resign soon but we should not stop with the perverts resignation. Justice must be done and bo and his criminal cohorts must pay for their crimes.

    That is one of the things I like about Rick Perry he has the guts to go after these criminals.

I plan to lead all true Americans in the fight to expose his lies, remove him from his job before the next election, and when feasible under the rule of law, arrest him. Only God and the prayer of thousands kept me from being arrested.

    With the introduction of the Koran at AF bootcamp as indoctrination in Lackland AB, Texas, and B. Obama’s dismissal of the deportation laws pending many illegals, his out and out tyranny is clear to any but an Obot.

    Frankly, I have a message to WND, and all of America, B. Obama’s days as our dictator are numbered. I am not in Germany anymore. I am in America. I will be going to Mayors, City Councils, Police Dept, and lawyers regarding the Citizen Arrest procedure. Also, I will be speaking in public at all places of engagement possible about ending this War that the enemy, B. Obama is intent on pursuing. He will lose, and so will his supporters.

    You may want to reference the online you tube video of my participation at a pitchfork rally at the seat of government in Georgia, via phone. This is what is coming everywhere. Nobody has stepped out to be the leader against B. Obama. I will do it. He breaks our laws, we WILL NOT follow his.

    He’s out there removing guys like Mubarak and Ghaddafi, who don’t know the Lord. I know the Lord. This will be different. Hear me America, and be strong! Pray and join me! As God is my witness.

    Respectfully,

    Mr. Daryn J. Moran

    PS I had some good people help me in leaving the base, and one has 3 powers of attorney now. They must know I don’t blame all the circumstances on other military people. In fact, someone in the military may have spoken up for me to keep me from being arrested. So, there is something positive. I want our nation united. Soon, those in the military will have to choose to fight for our enemy B. Obama or to defend the Constitution and Americans from tyranny. In Nevada, the AF was part of a raid on a civilian store, so some are joining the dictator.”

    “MILITARY’S PLANS AGAINST RIOTS IN AMERICA”

    By Eowyn
    August 23, 2011

    Excerpt:

    “You’ve seen the terrible riots in England.

    We have them in America, too, such as the recent black riot at the Wisconsin State Fair. It’s just that our media refuse to call them “riots,” as if doing so will just magically make them go away.

    That led the Investor’s Business Daily to publish an editorial on August 12, 2011, pointing out that “Across the U.S., mobs of black youths are organizing on Facebook to loot stores and beat whites. Yet none dare call the ‘flash mob’ attacks hate crime, least of all the attorney general.”

    The media may play ostrich, but the U.S. military isn’t.

    An article by John Hudson for The Atlantic Wire, August 10, 2011, describes “The U.S. Military’s Plan for London-Like Riots”. The name of the plan is CONPLAN. Here are excerpts:

    With British Prime Minister David Cameron authorizing the use of rubber bullets and water canons in wake of the turbulent London riots spreading through Britain, questions have been raised about how authorities in the U.S. would respond to a similar domestic disturbance threatening the nation’s stability. According to National Journal‘s White House correspondent Marc Ambinder the U.S. already has a game plan in place.

    “If what happened in London ever happened in the US, the military has plans — CONPLAN 3501 and 3502 — to suppress the ‘insurrection,’ he tweeted. […]

    According to the public policy organization GlobalSecurity.org, CONPLAN 3502 is the U.S. military’s plan for assisting state and local authorities in the event of a riot or major civil disturbance: “Tasks performed by military forces may include joint patrolling with law enforcement officers; securing key buildings, memorials, intersections and bridges; and acting as a quick reaction force.”

    It derives its constitutional backing from Article I, Section 8 stating that “Congress shall have power… to provide for calling forth the Militia to execute laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections, and repel Invasions” and is rumored to have been activated during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, during the 1999 Seattle WTO riots and during the 1992 Rodney King riots in Los Angeles. But, according to Nate Jones at the National Security Archive, “because historic Garden Plot activity was classified and current activity likely remains so, it is difficult to discern exactly how many times Garden Plot was evoked.” What jarred Jones upon looking at internal military documents, were the “indicators of potential violence,” which were especially racially oriented:”

  68. I had an interesting discussion with my dentist today. He is a Good Christian Conservative. I asked him about Gov Perry and he immediately responded that he liked Perry then he threw me a curve by saying that a Perry/Romney ticket would be good. At first I was going to respond citing Romney’s mormonism, wrecking of the Massachusetts economy and being the father of boCare and then I thought of Reagan/Bush. President Reagan selected Bush to get the establishment money for the campaign so maybe Perry/Romney would be a good ticket, although I still think Perry/Martinez is the best but for Romney’s money.

  69. A new poll to be released Wednesday shows Texas Gov. Rick Perry with a double digit lead nationally over the current 2012 frontrunner, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

    Public Policy Polling (PPP) would not reveal the exact results of the survey in advance of its release, but PPP’s Director Tom Jensen confirmed Perry’s double-digit advantage to NewsCore.

    The poll of Republican primary voters by the Democratically-aligned polling company will be the second to show Perry with a lead nationally since the three-term Texas governor entered the contest.

  70. “RON PAUL: LIBERTY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE ILLUSION OF SAFETY”

    “RON PAUL: TRUE LIBERTY VS. PERFECT SAFETY”

    “GOVERNMENT CANNOT PROTECT US FROM VIOLENCE”

    By Ron Paul
    Aug 23, 2011

    Excerpt:

    “Recent incidents of violence in Norway and London have made us understandably uncomfortable here at home, as many fear that a worsening economy will lead to violence and unrest in American cities. This is why Congress must view the economy as its first priority and a matter of national security. Unless and until we get our fiscal house in order to foster economic growth, civil society will continue to deteriorate.

    The fundamental lesson every American should learn from these incidents is that government cannot protect us. No matter how many laws we pass, no matter how many police or federal agents we put on the streets, a determined individual or group can still cause great harm. But Norway and England have strict gun control laws, and London in particular has security cameras monitoring nearly all public areas. But laws and spy cameras are useless in the face of lawless mobs or sick mass killers.

    Only private individuals on the scene could have prevented or lessened these tragedies. We should remember that theft, arson and property damage were not the only criminal acts in London. Innocent bystanders were assaulted and killed as well. In those instances, deadly force used in self-defense would have been fully justified.

    Perhaps the only good that could come from these terrible events is a reinforced understanding that we as individuals are responsible for our safety and the safety of our families. This means frankly that we must own and wisely use firearms to deter or prevent criminal assaults on our homes and persons. It is absurd to think police or government agents can protect 310 million Americans around the clock.

    Thanks to our media and many government officials, however, Americans have have become conditioned to view the state as our protector and the solution to every problem. Whenever something terrible happens, especially when it becomes a prominent news story, people reflexively demand that government “do something.” This impulse almost always leads to bad laws, more debt and a loss of liberty. It is completely at odds with the best American traditions of self-reliance and individual responsibility.

    Do we really want to live in a world of police checkpoints, surveillance cameras and metal detectors? Do we want to imprison every disturbed or alienated individual who fantasizes about violence? Do we really believe government can provide total security? Or can we accept that liberty is more important than the illusion of state-provided security?

    Freedom is not defined by safety; freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference – unless they use force or fraud against others. Government cannot create a world without risk, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens’ lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons.”

  72. ‘I CREATED OBAMA’S CERTIFICATION OF BIRTH’” ~~
    “WHITE HOUSE LINKS TO DELIBERATE FORGERY FROM SNOPES.COM, THINKING IT WAS REAL”

    By Jerome R. Corsi
    © 2011 WND
    August 9, 2011

    Excerpt:

    “When the White House posted online an image of President Obama’s purported long-form birth certificate, it also linked to the previously circulated “Certification of Live Birth,” the short-form version that had been presented as the only birth documentation available.

    However, the short-form certificate to which the White House linked April 27 was a forgery, claims research expert Ron Polland, Ph.D., who says he made the image himself.

    “I made the birth certificate image that was given to the media at the White House press conference held on April 27, 2011,” Polland told WND.

    “The White House said the black-and-white image is a copy of Obama’s 2007 [Certification of Live Birth], but it’s not. It is the forgery I created, and I can prove that is the case,” he declared.

    Polland said he created the image to bolster his contention that the short-form Certification of Live Birth circulated by the Obama presidential campaign was a forgery.”

    The Information Under This Video Reads:

    “Obama Lays Out Indefinite Detention System…”

    “In a stark reversal, the Obama administration announced Monday that it would resume military tribunals for suspected terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay. President Obama had ordered the prison be shut down on his second day at the White House and the announcement effectively amounted to an acknowledgment that the administration reached an impasse in its efforts to transfer some prisoners to the United States and prosecute them in federal court.

    Although administration officials insist the president is still committed to closing down the prison, he signed an executive order Monday that for the first time laid out the administration’s legal strategy to keep prisoners incarcerated indefinitely without trial.

    The executive order applies to “at least 48 of the 172 detainees” who are still in Guantanamo and Justice Department lawyers determined “could not be prosecuted in military commissions or in federal court because evidentiary problems would hamper a trial,” reports the Washington Post. Administration officials took pains to insist Obama’s executive order adds due-process rights that weren’t there under his predecessor, notes the Wall Street Journal. Within a year, each of the 48 detainees should receive an unclassified review detailing why they are to remain behind bars.

    Each detainee’s case will be fully reviewed every three years with interim reviews every six months to evaluate any new information. One attorney who represents 20 detainees tells the Washington Post “he sees no substantive difference between the new system and the review process under the George W. Bush administration.”

    The administration has not said anything about its plans for trying the men accused of plotting the Sept. 11 attacks.

    A new poll out of Iowa finds that Rick Perry is the new favorite there, not Michele Bachmann, the big winner of the state’s recent straw poll.

    And support in Iowa for Texas congressman and libertarian Ron Paul appears to be surging.

    Asked who they would support for president if the vote were held today, 22% of the Republican voters polled picked Mr. Perry, the Texas governor, compared with 19% for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and 18% for Mrs. Bachmann, the Minnesota congresswoman. Rep. Paul came in fourth with 16% support, double his tally in PPP’s June poll. The numbers don’t change all that much if Ms. Palin is inserted into the mix. She comes in fifth, with just 10% support.
