Kevin Shipp “is an ongoing coup to remove a duly elected President.”, Shipp former CIA Officer and whistleblower, Not seen anything like this since Presidency of John F. Kennedy (JFK)

“I had a Lee Harvey Oswald deja vu moment earlier today.”…Citizen Wells October 2, 2017.

“2. Scientific acoustical evidence establishes a high probability that two gunmen fired at President John F. Kennedy. Other scientific evidence does not preclude the possibility of two gunmen firing at the President. Scientific evidence negates some specific conspiracy allegations.

3. The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. The committee is unable to identify the other gunman or the extent of the conspiracy.”…Select Committee on Assassinations in the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy

“People need to understand that the Democrat Party today is not the Democrat Party of John F. Kennedy. The Democrat Party with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is more Marxist than anything else.  They think the Constitution should be a ‘progressive’ document.  In other words, the Constitution is outdated and should be redone. “…Kevin Shipp

 

From USA Watchdog.

“Trump is Doing What Kennedy Tried To Do – Kevin Shipp”

“Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says what is going on with Donald J. Trump “is an ongoing coup to remove a duly elected President.” Shipp contends, “This is a huge constitutional crisis like the country has never seen before. This makes Watergate look like a Sunday school class.”

On Friday, Shipp and other retired top officials at the CIA, FBI, DOJ and NSA held a press conference and demanded Attorney General Jeff Sessions prosecute top Obama era officials for obvious crimes against the incoming Trump Administration. Shipp says, “We have a coup within our government right now at the senior levels at the CIA, DOJ and the FBI attempting to unseat a duly elected President who was elected by the American people and remove him from office. . . .This is, at worst, treason with senior officials in the shadow government or Deep State . . . to attack Donald Trump and remove him from office. . . . We have not seen anything like this since the Presidency of John F. Kennedy (JFK), when CIA Director Allen Dulles attacked him, and we saw what happened there. . . . There is crystal clear evidence that the CIA was, at least, involved with the cover-up of the JFK assassination.  Now, we have the same thing happening again. . . . Remember what Chuck Schumer said, and it was chilling.  He said, ‘If you cross the intelligence community, they can hit back at you six ways from Sunday.’  That’s what we are seeing now.  It’s collusion or a coup with senior officials at the FBI, DOJ and CIA along with Robert Mueller to unseat an elected president.”

Shipp goes on to explain, “There is essentially a civil war involving parts of senior management and upper parts of our government that is occurring in the United States. It’s between the ‘Dark’ side and the ‘Constitutional’ side.  There has never been anything like this in history.  It is extremely serious, and this is an extremely serious hour for our government and especially for our constitutional freedoms. . . . This essentially is a global criminal cabal that has penetrated into our government and now has senior level officials colluding and, I would argue, conspiring to unseat this president.”

In closing, Shipp says, “People need to understand that the Democrat Party today is not the Democrat Party of John F. Kennedy. The Democrat Party with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is more Marxist than anything else.”

Patriot Mark Robinson sets Greensboro City Council straight on gun rights, Youtube video, When are you going to stand up for the majority?, I’m the majority, Gun show controversy

Patriot Mark Robinson sets Greensboro City Council straight on gun rights, Youtube video, When are you going to stand up for the majority?, I’m the majority, Gun show controversy

“Weaker people, whether at school, at home or elsewhere are best protected from stronger people, with ill intent, by guns and proper security measures.”…Citizen Wells

“Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA – ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the State.”…Heinrich Himmler

“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good”…George Washington

 

Mark Robinson, a lifelong citizen of Greensboro, NC, gives an unscripted, from the heart speech about his gun rights and the ultimate safety of his family before the Greensboro City Council.

 

From the News & Observer.

“‘Come hell or high water,’ citizens will keep gun rights, NC man vows in viral video”

“A North Carolina man’s 4-minute take on gun laws echoed well beyond the city council chambers where he shared it Tuesday afternoon.

Greensboro resident Mark Robinson’s speech went viral after U.S. Rep. Mark Walker of North Carolina shared it on Facebook on Wednesday morning. By Friday, the clip had been viewed more than 3.2 million times.

Robinson spoke during a public comment period in which several people shared thoughts on a gun and knife show slated for late summer at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex.

Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan previously proposed canceling the show in response to the Parkland, Fla., high school shooting that killed 17 people in February.”

“Robinson asked city leaders “when are you all going to start standing up for the majority?” – a group he said includes himself, as “a law-abiding citizen who’s never shot anybody, never committed a serious crime, never committed a felony.”

“I’ve never done anything like that, but it seems like every time we have one of these shootings, nobody wants to put the blame where it goes, which is at the shooter’s feet,” Robinson said at the meeting. “You want to put it at my feet.”

Robinson, who is black, is among the minority of male gun owners. Only 24 percent of non-white males said they owned a gun, while 48 percent of white men said they own a gun in 2017, making them the most likely demographic to own a gun, according to the Pew Research Center.

Robinson said he would turn in his guns if a new law required it, but said the law wouldn’t deter criminals from keeping their weapons.

“And guess who’s gonna to be the one that suffers? It’s gonna be me,” he said. “ … Our rights are the ones that are being taken away – that’s the reason why I came down here today. Gun show or no gun show, NRA or no NRA, I’m here to stand up for the law abiding citizens of this community.””

Don’t get sucked into the debate about guns and gun control.

That has nothing to do with the school tragedies. It has all to do with the Democrat Party far left agenda.

It not only has gotten us nowhere with securing our schools, it has made the situation far worse with gun free zones and the illusion that the absence of guns in an area makes it safer.

The problem in Florida, Sandy Hook and other school shootings was not guns, but the absence of guns in responsible hands.

The biggest problem is not making school security a top priority and following through with it.

One of my classic replies to anti gun fanatics, those wanting gun free zones is:

“Would you rather the crazies use explosives?”

The worst school disaster happened in Bath Township, Michigan May 18, 1927. 38 elementary school children and 6 adults were killed and at least 58 others injured. Dynamite was used.

And just yesterday….

That was pure luck!

Guns protect good people and weaker forces from superior forces of evil and crazy people, regardless of the weaponry.

There are many steps that can be taken to secure schools and other areas. Here are some.

From Citizen Wells January 16, 2013.

1. Monitor the areas outside the buildings. This would include monitored security cameras and some combination of walk arounds by staff and or security personnel.

2. Security alarms for illegal entry.

3. Buffered entry ways. i.e. double entry ways. The first door should set off the alarm and the second would slow down intrusion.

4. Stronger doorways.

5. Regular drills for emergency preparedness. We had those when I was in grade school.

6. As many armed school personnel as possible. “Good guys with guns to stop the bad guys with guns.” Each armed person should be psychologically evaluated.

“Spokesman for Rick Gates killed in Afghanistan hotel attack”

“A spokesman for Rick Gates, the former Trump campaign official indicted in the Russia investigation, was killed over the weekend in Afghanistan during the bombing and siege of a hotel that catered to foreigners.”

“Selig, a former investigative reporter for the Fox affiliate in Tampa, served as a spokesman in recent months both for Gates and for Jack Burkman, a lobbyist who recently organized a fundraiser for Gates that drew the ire of the judge overseeing his case.

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson complained that Gates’ participation in the event via a videotaped statement, along with Burkman’s sharp rhetoric toward special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, appeared to run afoul of a gag order she had entered in the case. Earlier this month, she dropped the matter with a warning to Gates not to engage anyone to make statements about the case on his behalf.”

From the Washingtonian February 23, 2018.

“Since his original indictment, Gates’s case has taken a few unexpected twists. A fundraiser last December organized by Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman to help Gates pay his legal bills raised the ire of Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who brought Gates into court to determine if the event violated her gag order on his case. Gates later shuffled most of his legal team. On Thursday, Mueller filed another 32 counts in federal court in Virginia alleging that Gates falsified his tax returns for several years; the plea being entered Friday does not appear to affect the new tax charges.”

“Democrat teams with Republican to solve Seth Rich murder”

“A Bernie Sanders campaign organizer and longtime Democrat joined forces with a Republican lobbyist and attorney to file a federal lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee for the release of the hacked DNC server they claim will reveal key information in solving the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.

Washington D.C.-based attorney Jack Burkman filed the suit on Tuesday in D.C. Superior Court along with the East Coast director of Black Men for Bernie, Gary Frazier.

At a press conference in front of DNC headquarters, Burkman asserted the DNC server will irrefutably prove the Democratic 2016 primary was rigged against Sanders, resolve whether Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential race and provide the “key” to solving the Rich murder mystery.

“In this case, we will finally, after a year and a half, get these servers. That, among other pieces of evidence, is probably the single most important piece of evidence in this case,” he said. “That will shed light on the entire Seth Rich mystery – we will know whether he was the leaker, we will know whether the Russians were involved, we will know whether WikiLeaks was involved.””

From PR News Channel November 14, 2017.

“On Tuesday, Jack Burkman, lawyer/community activist and director of The Profile Project, amended a lawsuit filed late last month against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, to now include Donna Brazile, the former interim DNC chair, after she dropped two bombshells in her new book Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House that speak directly to what happened to Seth Rich and the role the DNC allegedly played to ensure Hillary Clinton won the primary over Bernie Sanders.

Jack Burkman, who established the independent The Profiling Project to discover the truth about the unsolved murder, says by filing a lawsuit Ms. Brazile will be forced to say what she knows—under oath.

“If this were a random murder like police have maintained, why did Ms. Brazile fear for her own life,” says Burkman.

He says Brazile can clearly also offer critical information about what role the DNC Hillary Clinton’s primary win.

The lawsuit filed today in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, will compel former DNC chair Donna Brazile to tell what she knows about the murder and explain why she feared for her own life.”

From Citizen News September 3, 2016.

“The evidence uncovered by Judicial Watch overwhelmingly indicates
that President Clinton condoned, directed and effected this
lawbreaking. It also shows that he was aided and abetted by, among
others, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Vice President Albert Gore, late
Commerce Secretary Ronald Brown, Attorney General Janet Reno, and other
key White House personnel, including Leon Panetta, John Podesta, Harold
Ickes, Bruce Lindsey, Bernard Nussbaum, and Labor Secretary Alexis
Herman.
For example, Judicial Watch has uncovered key evidence in the
massive political espionage, witness tampering and intimidation
operation popularly known as “Filegate.” In “Filegate,” the Clinton
White House, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), Hillary
Rodham Clinton, former White House Counsel Bernard Nussbaum, and
Clinton appointees Craig Livingstone and Anthony Marceca, illegally
obtained and misused the FBI files of former Reagan and Bush
Administration staffers and others to gain sensitive information on
perceived political opponents and material witnesses for use in its
smear campaigns. Judicial Watch represents the victims of “Filegate”
in a civil lawsuit.
The “Filegate” political espionage, witness tampering and
intimidation operation, a horrendous violation of the Privacy Act and
other laws, continues to this day. It represents the means by which the
Clintons defend the various scandals which threaten their hold on
power. The evidence indicates that the Clinton Administration, with the
direct knowledge and participation of the President, continues to
illegally compile, maintain and disseminate sensitive information on
perceived adversaries from confidential government files. Contrary to
previous Clinton Administration explanations, Judicial Watch discovered
that it was a high-level Clinton political appointee who illegally
ordered the release of Linda Tripp’s confidential information from her
Pentagon file in a clear effort to intimidate her from telling what she
knew of Clinton White House illegal activities, and to destroy her
credibility. Judicial Watch also uncovered evidence indicating that
President Clinton authorized the illegal release of Kathleen Willey’s
letters, stored in a White House filing system subject to the Privacy
Act, in an effort to intimidate and smear her. Like Ms. Tripp, Ms.
Willey is a material witness in on-going criminal grand jury
investigations and civil lawsuits.
Part of the pattern of “Filegate” is President Clinton’s use of
private investigators, the Reno Justice Department, the FBI, the IRS,
and political operatives such as James Carville to obstruct justice,
silence witnesses and intimidate investigators. For example, Judicial
Watch has uncovered evidence that President Clinton personally
participated in this operation by threatening “to destroy,” and then
defaming one witness, Dolly Kyle Browning, if she dared to tell the
truth about their 30-year friendship and sexual relationship.
President Clinton’s political appointee and former IRS Commissioner
Margaret Milner Richardson also illegally used the IRS to audit public
interest groups thought to be hostile to the Clinton Administration,
including the Western Journalism Center.
Through discovery in its civil lawsuit against the Clinton Commerce
Department, Judicial Watch also has found evidence that President
Clinton condoned and participated in a scheme, conceived by First Lady
Hillary Rodham Clinton and approved by the President, to sell seats on
U.S. Department of Commerce trade missions in exchange for political
contributions. Bribery is specifically highlighted in the U.S.
Constitution as an offense warranting impeachment.
In President Clinton’s push to sell taxpayer-financed government
services to raise money for his political operations, national security
likely was breached by his Commerce Department appointees and those
involved in his fundraising scheme, such as John Huang. While Judicial
Watch is at an interim stage of investigation in this sensitive area,
the breaches of national security uncovered at the Clinton Commerce
Department raise real questions of treasonous activities by the
President and members of his Administration.
To cover-up this illegal fundraising and likely national security
breaches, President Clinton’s top two staffers, then-Chief of Staff
Leon Panetta and Deputy Chief of Staff John Podesta, ordered late
Commerce Secretary Ron Brown to obstruct justice and defy federal Court
orders. The evidence also indicates that Secretary Brown personally
consulted with President Clinton in furtherance of this cover-up.
In addition to the illegal sale of taxpayer-financed services, such
as seats on government trade missions, for political contributions, the
President and Mrs. Clinton have illegally solicited and received monies
directly from private citizens and others. The creation and use of
legal defense funds is not only prohibited under federal law, but they
have proved to be a means whereby lobbyists, influence peddlers and
foreign powers have tried to influence the Administration, contrary to
U.S. national security interests.”

“APRIL 20, 2012 AT 2:17 PM

Security union’s leader probed for possible fraud

Detroit— Federal agents are investigating allegations a labor boss stole money from a union whose members guard nuclear power plants, a NASA space center, auto plants and Detroit’s three casinos, The Detroit News has learned.

Racketeering and fraud investigators recently raided the Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America’s international headquarters in Roseville and the Troy home of labor leader David Hickey, according to federal court records obtained by The News.

Search and seizure warrants chronicle a quirky investigation that is focusing on the union’s finances and a labor leader who also performs as a popular magician.

Along with financial records, agents seized several cases filled with magic tricks, including a rubber dove, foam bricks and card tricks, according to federal search warrants filed in U.S. District Court in Detroit.

Agents probably suspect the magic tricks were purchased with money stolen from the union, said Peter Henning, a former federal prosecutor and current law professor at Wayne State University.

“If you find a bag of money, you take the bag of money. If you have a bag of tricks, then you seize the bag of tricks,” Henning said.

Hickey, 58, international president of the Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America, declined comment.

His lawyer, Robert Morgan, said agents were searching for evidence that Hickey may have stolen money from the union.

“I’m confident that when the government goes through all the records that there’s not going to be any basis to charge Mr. Hickey with the offense of embezzlement of union assets,” Morgan said.

He wouldn’t address why investigators seized Hickey’s magic tricks.

“The intriguing,” he said, “is intriguing.”

The investigation involves the investigators from the Labor Department’s Office of Labor Racketeering and Fraud Investigations. The agency targets labor racketeering and corruption in employee benefit plans, labor-management relations and internal union affairs, according to the office’s website.

Peer: Magic is Hickey’s life

At 24,519 members, the union is small, but important. The union bills itself as the country’s largest and oldest security police union in the United States.

Members work at almost half of the country’s 104 nuclear facilities — but at none of the Michigan sites — and guard NASA facilities including Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Its members work at Detroit’s three casinos and at General Motors Co. and Chrysler Group LLC facilities. The union also has members in Puerto Rico and Canada.

Hickey, who served as a union director and as secretary/treasurer before being elected president 12 years ago, was paid $156,639 last year, according to the union’s most recent annual report filed with the Labor Department.

The union’s total assets were almost $6.23 million last year, which included almost $4.7 million cash, according to the annual report.

“We have cooperated fully with the Department of Labor and will continue to do so,” said Gordon Gregory, the union’s general counsel.

The probe sheds light on Hickey’s life in the magic community. Gregory calls it a “hobby.”

In his free time, Hickey performs magic tricks using the stage name Dave Devin, friends said. He also invents and sells magic tricks and gags such as the Stretch-a-Buck.

Hickey’s stage name is listed as the resident agent of a company called Magical Promotions Unlimited, LLC, according to state business records. The company’s address is the union headquarters on Kelly Road in Roseville.

Magician Keri Kazz of Mount Clemens met Hickey through a local magic shop. He said Hickey is known as a consultant for magicians who specialize in close-up tricks that rely on sleight of hand.

“I want to say magic is his hobby, but it’s more like it’s his life,” Kazz said.

Hickey also invented and sells card tricks that are carried at area magic shops, including Wunderground Magic Shop in Clawson.

“He’s a guy who produces a lot,” Kazz said. “He’s definitely a creative mind.”

Home, union HQ raided

Hickey’s professional and private life collided late last month.

Federal agents armed with search warrants launched simultaneous raids March 28 at the union’s international headquarters and Hickey’s house.

Agents seized 43 items at the union headquarters, including Hickey’s personal expense vouchers, bank and credit card statements, a union financial summary, cash receipts and audit paperwork.

They also left with at least eight boxes or cases filled with magic tricks, foam bricks, ropes, a rubber dove, DVDs and magic-related items carrying the name “Dave Devin.”

Gregory, the union lawyer, wasn’t concerned that agents seized magic items stored at the union headquarters.

“I was puzzled, frankly, and well, that’s it,” Gregory said.

Labor Racketeering and Fraud Investigations Special Agent Megan Howell, who raided the union headquarters, could not be reached for comment and the U.S. Attorney’s Office declined comment.

While agents were hauling away Hickey’s magic tricks, others were raiding his home in Troy.

Agents seized two Apple computers, a camcorder, portable DVD players, a woman’s gold necklace and diamond charm, magic books and movies.

Union Vice President Mark Crawford said he knew about the raid at union headquarters, but not the Troy raid.

“We have nothing to worry about,” Crawford said. “These are routine investigations.”

Hickey’s job status has not changed as the probe continues.

“There is absolutely no basis for any action,” said Gregory, the union’s lawyer.

The raids didn’t stop Hickey’s magic career.

One day after the raids, Hickey served as master of ceremonies during a magic show at the Emerald Theatre in downtown Mount Clemens.

“When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”…Adolf Hitler

“FBI, Homeland Security warn of more ‘antifa’ attacks

Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as “antifa” had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,” according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents obtained by POLITICO.

Since well before the Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned deadly, DHS has been issuing warnings about the growing likelihood of lethal violence between the left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacist and nationalist groups.

Previously unreported documents disclose that by April 2016, authorities believed that “anarchist extremists” were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies against a range of targets. They were blamed by authorities for attacks on the police, government and political institutions, along with symbols of “the capitalist system,” racism, social injustice and fascism, according to a confidential 2016 joint intelligence assessment by DHS and the FBI.”

““Everybody is wondering, ‘What are we gonna do? How are we gonna deal with this?’” said the senior state law enforcement official. “Every time they have one of these protests where both sides are bringing guns, there are sphincters tightening in my world. Emotions get high, and fingers get twitchy on the trigger.”

Even before Charlottesville, dozens and, in some cases, hundreds of people on both sides showed up at events in Texas, California, Oregon and elsewhere, carrying weapons and looking for a fight. In the Texas capital of Austin, armed antifa protesters attacked Trump supporters and white groups at several recent rallies, and then swarmed police in a successful effort to stop them from making arrests.

California has become another battleground, with violent confrontations in Berkeley, Sacramento and Orange County leading to numerous injuries. And antifa counter-protesters initiated attacks in two previous clashes in Charlottesville, according to the law enforcement reports and interviews.”
