PAGE NINE -- No. 74
by Alan Korwin, Author
Gun Laws of America

 

I've created a special feature for the print media and broadcasters ("Page Nine" regardless of where or when it runs), that covers stories afresh, not the way news rooms typically flavor things. It would help reduce the distrust so many news consumers feel and could be the most avidly followed item you carry -- if you carry it. It certainly is well received by my audience.

This casual sample might make you say, "We'll NEVER run that!" but Page Nine is being built around ad revenues from clear-thinking mainstream businesses.

Are you ready?
Are you ready for this?
It's what's on TV --

"Alan, I appreciated your beautiful list of American virtues. It was just what I needed to answer my liberal sister who was shocked to learn I no longer watch TV because of its promotion of perversion etc. She responded by asking, 'Well, what should be on TV?' like there were no other viable formats! I'm sending her your list of American values titled 'FOR STARTERS.' Note that NONE of those values is the subject of television fare. Thanks." P.J. O'Malley.

No, thank you, P.J., for starting me thinking. I wondered what the opposite of my list of American values would look like. In five minutes, off the top of my head, I jotted down what I remembered from recent TV (that's the first list). Then, being a good little researcher, I clicked through an hour and a half of aptly named boob-tube programming with a notepad in hand to make sure (that's the second list).

This is a revelation folks.

American values are pretty much absent from most TV. Unadulterated moral filth, perversion and horror are being beamed into American homes non-stop. Many homes get six hours or more of this trash daily. Do you think that has an effect?

You watch this stuff. Just like everyone (except for a few P.J. O'Malleys). Make a list next time. Wake up and smell the garbage.

People perpetrating this decay-inducing vomit say it's what the public wants, ratings prove it. I don't buy it. And I can't stand it, which is why, like you, I flip through channels hoping for something good, instead of staying with the "programming" for long, when I watch at all. I say, if TV had shows with the values in the American values list, they'd attract huge audiences, and have a positive effect. (Please don't write to tell me about Animal Planet, Discovery Channel and the Food Network, I agree there is some vestige of decency on cable, and maybe even elsewhere, but you catch my drift, right?)

The public airwaves have become a sewer. The people promoting this outrage are stark enemies of The American Way. Basically, if you watch ABC or NBC, you'll C... BS.

All the more reason to go to, or organize, your own Bill of Rights Day reading. Clear your head for a few precious hours. Rekindle the American spirit. Give yourself and your friends and neighbors the gift of what makes America great.

PAGE NINE

 

2- CORRECTIONS:
(for Page Nine #73)
http://www.gunlaws.com/Page9Folder/PageNine-73.htm

 

It's the Ft. Worth, not Austin, Star-Telegram, Austin's paper is the American-Statesman. D'oh.

 

Several readers noticed ACORN's new name didn't match its acronym. Author friend Charly Gullett explains, "At the time of writing, ACORN was struggling with what to re-name itself. CCI was and is the financial laundering arm of the organization and was considered at the time a contender for the new name. In fact they seem to have been waylaid in this re-naming effort by the recent video scandals. The name now on paper legally for the international arm (but not yet on the web) is Community Organizers International." http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/11836. Check out Charly's new book on overturning America's socialists, "Cooking Alinsky's Goose." http://www.gunlaws.com/books8newbies.htm

 

I had complained about the federal proposal to estimate the entire economy to within 1/4 percent 12 years from now. One astute reader gripes that he would think, "Getting an economic prediction right to within 1/4 percent for 12 minutes from now would be quite an accomplishment for a government office." I stand humbled. Many comments came in, pasted at the end of this report.

 

3- STARTERS:

 

Bloomfield Press plans to file an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief in the Chicago gun-ban case, McDonald v. Chicago. Joining the brief are independent gun-rights groups from Arizona, Texas and Virginia,* and Sheriff Richard Mack, the sheriff who filed and won the original Supreme Court case against the Brady bill. According to publisher Alan Korwin, "Newly confirmed Justice Sonia Sotomayor said during her Senate hearings that she was unaware of any self-defense cases at the High Court, and that has gone unchallenged. The Court has heard 14 self-defense cases, it has consistently and unambiguously covered all major elements of self defense law, and state laws are in perfect harmony with the Court's rulings. This had to be brought to the Court's attention." More news soon. *(Arizona Citizens Defense League, Texas Concealed Handgun Ass'n., Virginia Citizens Defense League.) Self-defense summaries:

4- Hated Thought Crimes

The lamestream media told you:

"Congress votes to add gays to hate-crime laws. Physical attacks on people based on their sexual orientation will join the list of federal hate crimes in a major expansion of civil-rights-era law that Congress approved," according to Jim Abrams of the AP. [Note that sexual orientation is actually not a basis for this crime -- only odd sexual orientation is included. Whether writer Abrams is in the new protected class was not disclosed.]

Recognizing that the bill had no chance for passage, it was attached to a must-pass $680 billion defense spending bill. [Note that spineless legislators allowed this illegal maneuver, and only 29 senators refused to vote for the bill and stand on principle.]

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

George Orwell proposed it first, and Mr. Obama has just signed another one into law. A new group, people of unusual sexuality, are now a special class of victims if attacked because of their sexuality.

The bottom line in thought-crimes-labeled-hate-crimes laws is that if you smash a person on the head with a 2 x 4, it's less of a crime than if you smash the person on the head with a 2 x 4 because you don't like them. Finding out whether you like them or not is the job of federal thought police, though 45 states reportedly have their own thought-police programs in place.

According to attorney general Eric Holder, who says thought-crimes-labeled-hate-crimes are his personal specialty, more than 80,000 such events have been "reported" to the federal government since he made his feelings known in congressional testimony 11 years ago. How many new offices and employees would be needed to staff a jobs program for processing so many newly manufactured thought-crimes-labeled-hate-crimes was not revealed.

"You better not hate anyone you physically confront," said one anonymous expert, who prefers to remain anonymous, "because if you do, or even if you don't and the feds charge you with improper thoughts, you're in a world of hurt. If you have to beat on someone, just do it in an emotionless way, it's legally safer." Senseless beatings, he says, are less criminal than specialized beatings.

The new law fails to criminalize hatred of short people, stupid people, racists, dopers, SUV owners, leaf blowers, the voice that tells you you're subject to search at the airport, white people and members of Congress or the "news" media, none of whom were reached for comment.

5- Firearms Busy Season

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing.

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

NICS ALERTS RETAILERS OF BUSY SEASON HOURS . . . The FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) has announced hours for its busy season, which began Oct. 1 and will continue through Jan. 16. During this time, NICS Section operational hours will be from 6 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. Eastern Time, with state points-of-contact (POCs) being placed in service at 7 a.m. and out of service at 1:30 a.m. EST. NICS call centers will maintain their normal daily operations hours of 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. EST. This is all done to facilitate public purchase of guns at retail, which must be approved by central federal bureaucrats, according to the Brady law.

One day that will deviate from this schedule will be the day after Thanksgiving (Nov. 27), when NICS will come in full service at 6 a.m. EST. This will include the call centers, state POCs and NICS Section. The NICS Section is closed Christmas Eve at midnight and all day on Christmas. NICS operations will resume on Dec. 26 at 6 a.m. EST. The state POCs will resume at 7 a.m. and the call center at 8 a.m. EST.

Despite tens of thousands of denied gun sales to hardened criminals who are forced to get their guns elsewhere, denying cities much needed sales tax revenue, arrests of felons seeking guns at retail is extremely low, for reasons that are well understood: http://www.gunlaws.com/BradyArrestsLacking.htm

6- Muslims Have Guns

The lamestream media told you:

"DETROIT - Federal authorities on Wednesday arrested several members of a radical Sunni Islam group in the U.S., killing one of its leaders at a shootout in a Michigan warehouse, the U.S. attorney's office said," according to a story by Ed White circulated by the AP.

"FBI spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold said Abdullah refused to surrender, fired a weapon and was killed by gunfire from agents.

"Abdullah regularly preached anti-government rhetoric and was trained, along with his followers, in the use of firearms, martial arts and swords, the agent said.

"Abdullah preaches that every Muslim should have a weapon, and should not be scared to use their weapon when needed," Leone wrote.

"This group is very much American born and bred," according to a chaplain-professor quoted by the AP, which also reports the "members of the national group mostly are Black and some converted to Islam while in prisons across the United States." They are apparently led by "Jamil Abdullah al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rap Brown, who is serving a life sentence in a federal prison in Colorado."

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

While Americans generally back FBI and other efforts to root out and eliminate radical Muslim terrorists on U.S. soil and elsewhere, some of the justifications used by the FBI for doing so, if accurately reported by the AP, are cause for grave concern.

Patriotic advocates of limited government and delegated constitutional powers routinely discuss what could be called "anti-government rhetoric," and are "trained, along with his followers, in the use of firearms," and other weapons. This is considered decent American behavior in all but small fringe leftist circles.

"Most people who believe in limited government, where people are the masters and the government is the servant, do of course say, 'that every American should have a weapon, and should not be scared to use their weapon when needed,'" according to several unnamed patriots speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of FBI assaults on their homes, known in FBI circles as "compounds."

The NY Times, in a provocative additional item not reported by AP, says Abdullah said, "To obtain bulletproof vests for protection, he told followers, they should 'shoot a cop in the head, and take their vest,'" according to the court-filed complaint. U.S. patriots never make such suggestions, and such actions would indeed be reasonable grounds for investigating the group, which authorities did for three years before the assault on their compound.

Nor does an American normally threaten, as the Times reports, "that if the police ever tried to apprehend him, he would 'just strap a bomb on and blow up everybody.'" Suicide bombs are widely viewed as stupid bombs by Americans, who have a decided preference for smart bombs.

7- Global Warming Cooling

The lamestream media told you:

"Survey: Americans' belief in global warming is cooling off," according to Dina Cappiello, writing for AP. In a half page article, "Just 57 percent think there is solid evidence the world is getting warmer, down 20 percentage points in just three years, a new poll says." The poll was conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press." http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091022/ap_on_re_us/us_climate_poll

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Instead of a story examining any evidence of any changes in earth's climate, the AP is feeding its readers a poll of people's opinions, which are a result of rumor, web stories, idle chatter, "news" releases and anything but science or facts.

People promoting global warming were reportedly distressed at the story, and began thinking of ways to more massively convince useful idiots that the climate agenda is real, should be accepted, and the proposed tax increases and societal controls should be swallowed.

According to the story, one scientist blamed the drop in poll results on, "a combination of poor communication by scientists, a lousy summer in the Eastern United States, people mixing up weather and climate," and what he called a PR effort "to instill a sense of uncertainty and confusion in the public." I am not making this up. He made no mention of data, omitted from news reports, that show the earth has been cooling. Melting ice caps did make the tale however.

Most striking, the editors left in a line that noted, "Though there are exceptions, the vast majority of scientists agree that global warming is occurring." Most global whining stories refuse to make any mention that there is doubt or exceptions to the popularized model.

A quick review of science history shows that enormous numbers of real discoveries start out as a vast majority of scientists holding a false belief, against a small fringe and hated minority that finds the truth and eventually brings it to the table against all odds. The flat earth, earth as the center of the universe, discovery of elements, understanding that fire isn't caused by phlogiston and the ability of heavier than air machines to fly are among some obscure examples that spring to mind.

Also notable, the study found that people in the northeast and west coast believe in global warming more than people in the middle of the nation. This suggests that the study wasn't studying climate beliefs at all, but was measuring gullibility and its distribution. No cause for such a phenomenon was discussed or is known, though California is often referred to as the land of fruits and nuts.

8- Five Trillion Globo-Dollars

The lamestream media told you:

"LONDON -- Finance Ministers and central bankers from the world's most powerful industrialized and developing nations agreed to deliver the remainder of a $5 trillion global fiscal stimulus while outlining a compromise on efforts to rein in pay for bankers," according to William Watts, writing for MarketWatch.

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

This overlooked minor item from Sep. 6, 2009 points out that: 1- The American stimulus bill shows we're pikers on the world stage; 2- Internationalists control insane amounts of cash, none of which is theirs since all "finance minister" money is taken from the public; 3- $5 trillion is $5,000 billion, or five million million, a number too large for even finance ministers to comprehend, let alone the people it has been taken from in drips and drops; 4- U.S. news coverage barely shows a tip of the iceberg on what's really going on in the world; 5- Who gets all that cash is undisclosed, as is what they'll do with it; 6- Any mechanism for following the action is unknown to mere mortals; 7- The chance that less than all of it will stay out of power brokers' pockets is probably infinitesimal; and 8- calls for more taxation at any level must be resisted and elected advocates for more taxation must be removed from office.

9- Special Guest Columnist Craig Cantoni

"United Nations says that diversity is bad and fossil fuels are good"

 

In a shocking reversal, the United Nations has come out against New World Order dogma about diversity and global warming.  It has concluded that the best countries for human development are racially homogenous, as long as the dominant race is white or Asian.  And if that's not enough political incorrectness, the top country in human development in the U.N.'s eyes has funded its rich social spending with -- gasp! -- offshore oil production.

Well, admittedly, the U.N. didn't state its conclusion that directly, and the mainstream media didn't report it that directly; but anyone with a grain of intelligence and an ounce of knowledge could read between the lines and reach that unspoken conclusion.  That means that no one in Congress, the White House, the media, teachers unions, or the professoriate could reach the conclusion.

The conclusion can be easily drawn by everyone else from the U.N.'s recently released annual index of human development, which ranks 182 countries by such factors as education, per-capita income, and life expectancy.  The top ten countries are listed below.  I have added in parentheses the percentage of their populations that is white and, if they have a large Asian population, the percentage that is Asian.  (The percentages are estimated from other sources for those countries that don't report their racial composition.)

1. Norway (98% white)

2. Australia (92% white and 7% Asian)

3. Iceland (94% white)

4. Canada (66% white and 11% Asian)

5. Ireland (94.9% white and 1.3% Asian)

6. The Netherlands (85.7% white and 2.4% Asian)

7. Sweden (94% white)

8. France - (95% white)

9. Switzerland (96% white)

10. Japan (99.4% Asian)

[NOTE: This proves that facts are racist; please don't attack Craig or the Uninvited Ombudsman for this fact.]

As you can see, unless you're a liberal arts professor or community organizer, the top ten countries are predominately white or Asian.  They are also democratic, industrialized, mostly capitalistic, and protective of civil liberties and property rights.  In addition, several of the countries fund private schools with public money.  And two of the countries, Norway and Canada, are rich in fossil fuels and other natural resources.   

With its rank of 13th place, the United States didn't make the top ten.  According to leftists in the White House and elsewhere, this is proof that the country sucks.  Actually, it's proof that the leftists suck in statistical analysis and veracity.

The truth is that the United States would rank near the top if it had the racial make-up of Norway -- or even Minnesota.  Conversely, Norway would not rank at the top if it shared a border with a third-world country and had to absorb, assimilate, and educate millions of legal and illegal immigrants, especially if many of them crossed the border with little education, low skills, no money, and poor health.

Moreover, the U.N.'s definition of "human development" is misleading.  For example, an unskilled and uneducated Mexican with tuberculosis who earns four dollars a day can cross the U.S.-Mexico border and in a few months be earning eight times as much, be treated for free in a modern hospital, and get a free education for his children.  Although his own human development will have skyrocketed, he brings down the ranking for the United States, because he is not as well-off as a blond, blue-eyed native Norwegian.     

Based on the U.N.'s human development index, the key to the United States rising to the top in human development is not nationalized healthcare or a European-style social-welfare state.  It is to deport all non-whites and non-Asians.  Thankfully, that goes against American values.  We'd rather be a diverse nation and be lower on the index than look like Norway and be higher on the index.

Thanks, Alan! As usual you're making everybody take another look at the news. --Deb K.

Regarding my sanity -- over the incomprehensible CBO estimate for 0.25% GNP change in 12 years caused by one law:

"Alan, my dear--You are perfectly sane. The best explanation I heard for why the CBO (an outfit that most everyone concedes is honest) comes up with their figures is that they are taking the government at face value. In other words, the reason they had such a low-ball number for the cost of health care reform is that they ASSUME that everything stated in the bill is as it would be in practice.... certainly not going to happen." --Becky F.

 

Alan, you are not repeat not outta line to question the guesstimates.  Wish I'd made a note, but a few weeks ago a radio show had hard intel on the huuuge error factors in US govt estimates of various programs, from The "Great" Society onward... IMO, beyond the obvious fact that govt predictions about ANYTHING are vastly inaccurate, ya gotta wonder why anybody still believes them. --Barrett T.

 

You asked, "Am I nuts?" Yes.  So am I.  Their biased, sophomoric reporting had driven us nuts.  From one nut to another, your comments are spot-on. Craig C.

 

Alan, You're not nuts, the media is. Last week our news said our fire and rescue teams were preparing and practicing for a "man-made natural disaster." Really? --Howard F.

 

"Well ... thing is, the AP in its "reporting" is merely passing along what the CBO report says. AP is not (yet) analyzing, covering, assigning a reporter (yet) -- just getting the "news" out as soon as they possibly can. AP is not making up the CBO report, and is careful to attribute it solely to the CBO. That's not to say at some point they will assign a reporter, do a full story, question the statistics etc. The CBP report came out, AP is passing along the info... The media does not make this up. They are "reporting" what some government body, politician, expert, whomever says -- yet, in the meantime, it's the messenger who gets killed." --Laurie F., newspaper editor

[Laurie, Your answer exacerbates a very bad situation. Rationalizes horrific reporting and makes the perps innocent. Reporters have a responsibility to vet anything they get handed. Otherwise, the moon is made of green cheese. Running a government proclamation is a single-sourced story, unacceptable. When government -- especially government -- makes a pronouncement, the fourth estate must say, "They said this, but experts say it's impossible." C'mon, a 1/4% prediction 12 years out for the entire economy based on one bill is moronic. Reporting that, just because it was said, is worse than silence. Much worse. Violates the ethics code up down and sideways. Reporters should say, "Government is asking the public to accept a report that is impossible," and then explain why that is so. --Alan.]

 

Not yet, but the MSM could drive anybody nuts. :-)  What drives me crazy is we never seem to get much of a background on how a particular study or forecast has been done. They expect us to accept it on faith -- the slanted drug and gun studies, the software "climate models" that predict doom for the Earth. I'm a computer engineer, I know how easy it is to get garbage out by putting garbage in. When I was young I recall the press having a (sometimes) adversarial relationship with the government, sadly this seems to have ended. Thank God (or should I say thank Gore? :-) ) for the Internet!
Keep up the good work, Alan! --Vaughn T.

And one oldie: "We were at the 9/12 march in Washington.  I saw orderly, neat, respectful people as far as my eyes could gaze...  What I found absolutely fascinating was that there was no hint of violence or disrespect.  Those million also left NO LITTER for the Parkies to clean up. We packed out what we packed in, unlike the heathen at the most recent inauguration. The Obama Admin said they were unaware a demonstration was even planned for the day.  We on the ground noted Marine One take off for Andrews, en route ultimately for Minnesota (I guess a friendlier crowd there.) Obama could NOT have missed the mass of humanity below him."
