I've created this special feature for the print media and broadcasters ("Page Nine" regardless of where it runs), that covers stories afresh, not the way news rooms typically flavor things. It will 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 built around ad revenues from clear-thinking mainstream businesses.

9- Special Offer -- not to be missed

My standard email signature has for a long while featured a quote that, while meaningful to me, may be mis-attributed, and has now been changed.

According to Wikiquotes, itself a less than perfect source, "One man with courage is a majority," may not have been coined by Thomas Jefferson, as I've been posting. The quote has been "attributed to Andrew Jackson by Robert F. Kennedy in his foreword to the 'Young Readers Memorial Edition' of John F. Kenenedy's Profiles in Courage, and by Ronald Reagan in nominating Robert Bork to the US Supreme Court, but this has never been found in Jackson's writings, and there is no record of him having declared it."

I've changed my signature to include a quote well attributed to Abraham Lincoln, which I use in conversation frequently: "Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail. Without it, nothing can succeed." This neatly expresses why I prefer to work in the court of popular opinion.


Fifty of these illuminated street signs were posted under contract --
and torn down by the city of Phoenix!
We'll be taking action, those wheels grind slowly, stay tuned!

1- Reverse Miranda Statement Proposed

The lamestream media told you:


The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however:

Could the "Adnarim Statement" help protect innocent crime victims?

For 40 years, ever since the famous "Miranda" case at the U.S. Supreme Court, police have been reading people their rights when they are taken into custody under suspicion of having committed a crime.

In a free society, does it make sense for the state to read you your rights?
Is it possible that you should instead read your rights to the state?

This controversial idea, endorsed by many attorneys, is proposed and explored in a new book on self defense, "After You Shoot: Your gun's hot. The perp's not. Now what?" The book has been released by Arizona-based Bloomfield Press, the nation's largest publisher and distributor of gun-law books. More than 70 experts were involved in the creation of the book.

"Many lawyers put statements on the backs of their business cards, designed to be read to police if you are stopped for anything from a traffic violation to a possible murder charge after a self-defense incident," notes Alan Korwin, author of this, his 13th book.

"Is that a get-out-of-jail-free card, as some lawyers think? Or is it a go-directly-to-jail card, as others insist? We broke new ground taking a hard look at this issue." The idea of reading your rights to "the man" is not without precedent. To some degree, this is what happens when a lawyer is present to help a client while police conduct an interrogation.

Korwin's proposed "Adnarim Statements," (Miranda backwards, pronounced ad-NAH-rim) are synthesized from numerous sources, and are actually three separate statements. The longest is potentially used on the back of a defense-attorney's card, reflecting what many lawyers currently do. The second is designed to be used by a defense attorney when phoning a report to 911, while rushing to the scene on behalf of a client-victim after an assault. The third Adnarim Statement, a mere four words, is intended for a person who must call 911 directly to summon aid, establishing that the caller is the victim and helping to ensure protection against self-incrimination.

The Adnarim Statement approach is one of five proposed remedies for dangerous self-defense loopholes that put innocent people at risk after surviving assaults by criminals. Too often, innocent people unintentionally incriminate themselves, instead of being legitimately convicted on reasonable grounds by solid police work.

2- Rangel Wrangles Redemption

The lamestream media told you:

Twenty-term congressman Charlie Rangel received serious ethical censure from his fellow members of Congress. Representing the historic New York area known as Harlem, and recently re-elected despite the ethics charges, the 40-year veteran will not be expelled from Congress, which would have been the most harsh penalty he faced.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Proving once again that the so-called justice system is stacked to favor the ruling elite, a proven long-term crook will not be arrested or jailed, because he is well-connected member of Congress. Any member of the public caught hiding income and failing to pay taxes, especially over an extended period of time and in at least high six-figure amounts, as Rangel did, would face loss of assets and long prison terms.

Rangel, who represents and has basically failed to improve the historic poverty-stricken festering pesthole known as Harlem for more than 40 years, received a public slap on the wrist. At least, say his critics, he had $2 million dollars sucked out of him by lawyers who failed to get him off completely. The money actually belonged to his contributors, for use in campaigns, so he really didn't lose anything, unless he had plans to spend the money on himself, which is unknown.

In late breaking news, Rangel is now seeking to have his sentence reduced. The sentence amounts to being publicly confronted on the floor of Congress with his violations. He seeks to have the charges presented without having to stand there and listen to them. No actual punishment like prison or fines are involved.


3- Drug Farce Continues

The lamestream media told you:

Beefed-up enforcement along the southwestern border has resulted in "unprecedented" seizures of illegal drugs, currency and firearms, according to a report issued by the Obama administration, according to reporter Dennis Wagner of the Arizona Republic.

White House drug czar Gil Kerlikowske's update on counternarcotics efforts says smuggling arrests, narcotics seizures and cash confiscations all saw dramatic increases during 2009 and 2010 because of added manpower, fencing and technology on the border.

Among the most telling statistics in this month's report: Officers intercepted $282 million in illegal currency, a 35 percent increase over the prior two years; 7 million pounds of marijuana, cocaine, heroin and other drugs seized, up 16.5 percent; 6,800 weapons heading for Mexico, a 22 percent increase over the previous two-year period. [No independent corroboration of the numbers is available; the numbers can be read to imply that these amounts simply entered the country before this law enforcement "increase" were announced, in addition of course to all the unannounced imports that routinely take place.]

"Our stats distinguish the facts from the popular frenzy of fabrication and falsehoods about the border," U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke said. "We have made inroads into Mexico through joint investigations and prosecutions as we have never before."

But some Arizona officials question the numbers and claims of improved security: "We have not seen this improvement," said Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, noting that his jurisdiction has become a major smuggling corridor. "They're not looking at the reality on the ground." Attorney General Terry Goddard said border enforcement was so weak for so long that recent efforts are only a start. "As compared to nothing, they're doing a lot," he said.

Drug-fighting efforts will be bolstered this year by $600 million more in funding. [This is the 40th year in a row that funding has been increased]. Ethan Nadelmann, director of the Drug Policy Alliance, which advocates drug treatment and education rather than expansion of America's so-called war on drugs, said increased seizures and arrests don't mean that narcotics abuse or violence are abating. "It says to me they are responding to public demands, public fears," Nadelmann said. "This sounds like the same-old-same-old they've been saying for 40 years."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

State-issued propaganda released this week to U.S. “news” agencies was intended to show a winning trend in the seemingly endless war on some drugs. But inadvertently it shows instead that drug-war reports merely feature changing levels of federal activity, and do not measure drug activity in any way.

Some estimates of drug seizures suggest that as little as five percent of imported drugs are captured by officials. If accurate, then every “news” story glorifying catches of five tons really means 95 tons have been released to the public, completely undermining credibility of government-managed  reports carried as “news.”

“They give no sugar-coating to this story, which is unusual” notes the Uninvited Ombudsman. “By clearly stating that “vastly” increased interdiction is a result of increased enforcement by Mr. Obama's administration, we can see prima facie what has been obvious all along. This has nothing to do with how many illegal vegetable products arrive, and officials don't know or even care. Captures are just a function of whether they are “getting tough” or not, and thus catching a few more or less percentage points. Availability remains high, with low low prices nationwide.”

The Uninvited Ombudsman has been saying for years that the war on some drugs is a total failure or even a well-orchestrated farce, a federal jobs program, and does little but provide feel-good law-and-order stories, price supports and bloody excitement for the traffickers, and enhanced sales and viewership for news-starved “news” media outlets.

Recent praise for the discovery of a drug tunnel from Tijuana to San Diego lauded the capture of several tons of pot still in the tunnel. No information was provided on how much the tunnel was designed to handle daily, or how long the tunnel was in operation before it was discovered and reported like a Keystone Kops comedy. Many in the gullible brainwashed public saw the report as a victory, even though the tunnel featured a rail system, electric lighting and ventilation for an unknown length of time.

News of the law-enforcement failure and massive easy imports prior to the discovery was not reported in the “news,” increasing the pseudo-credibility gullible news consumers have come to rely upon. The total number of drug tunnels in regular operation daily is not known. Critics complain that there is no way to know, so it's unfair to blame officials for their failures.


4- Lame, Duck Insults

The lamestream media told you:

The lame-duck Congress could enact bad laws that a non-lame-duck Congress would never attempt. Because there are so many lame ducks seated, the harm they could do to the nation is great. The lame ducks might even enact laws they couldn't get through before the election, since they have nothing more to lose.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The discriminatory and derogatory "lame-duck" insult to ducks everywhere, by the lameduck media, should be ended, according to leading witnesses speaking on condition of anonymity from unidentified duck blinds. The promoters of this awfully lame slur should be ashamed of themselves, they say.

The correct term is “lame politician.” Congress will have a lame-politician session before Christmas, making an already nervous public even more fearful of the harm the lame politicians might create. Ducks Unlimited has not been asked for comment, and has made none. Ducks Unltd. is an animal civil-rights group involved in caring for and feeding ducks -- to hunters and their families.


5- Brady Zero Tolerance

The lamestream media told you:

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence released its annual report card, scoring the states on their efforts at gun control. We in the media faithfully report the results, rooting for high scores for all states, to ensure a planet full of control and free from crime. People who understand such things look down and frown upon states that get low Brady scores, where any cretin with one eyebrow and an NRA card can buy an arsenal of deadly assault revolvers and many many bullets.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Arizona, which leads the nation in a handful of social issues, is now seeking a first-ever negative score from the group formerly known as the Brady Campaign to Ban Handguns. Currently, the Grand Canyon state is ranked at 2 out of a possible 100 on the Brady annual report card.

The Arizona Citizens Defense League has been working on achieving a perfect zero score, understanding that a lower score reflects more personal freedom and better preservation of the right to keep and bear arms. “The Bradys don't realize it, but their scale is an inverse measure -- people in high-score states are seriously infringed, so the scale is valuable as an upside-down measurement of freedom, not what the Bradys intend,” said Charles Heller, an officer of the civil-rights group.

Apparently, all two points are awarded due to the ban on campus carry, which prevents anyone on a college campus from legally exercising the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Even tenured professors with FBI clearance and plastic-coated government permission slips suffer under the ban. An effort to overturn that ban is being fought on principled grounds, according to AzCDL. The improvement in the Brady score is just a bonus. “We want zero!” was a chant at the group's annual open-carry banquet, which attracted 400 armed diners. Service was slow, but all the waiters made it out alive, contrary to critics' fears.

“We believe we can earn and deserve a negative score by proactively promoting a culture of marksmanship,” said Alan Korwin, a civil-rights activist in the state, and publisher at Bloomfield Press, the largest publisher and distributor of gun law books in the nation. “We have Constitutional Carry, which completely erases government interference with the right to arms, for any law-abiding adult present in the state. That ought to be worth less than nothing to the Bradys,” he said. “Plus, we have a high school marksmanship law on the books, maybe if we push enough students through the program we can motivate the Bradys to reduce our score below zero.”

The state is also running a first-of-its-kind statewide gun-training program,, funded by the firearms industry in the state, in an effort to teach every Arizonan to, “Learn to shoot straight.” Activists in Arizona believe this should surely be worth detracting points to obtain the coveted negative score. “The question now is how low can we go,” asks Eric Cartridge, a guitarist in the political parody band The Cartridge Family. “Would machine-gun-day-at-the-range for state legislators help us improve our score?"


6- Millions For Marksmanship

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing, although they did cover much smaller donations for everything from studying bugs to (name something silly here, so many to choose from).

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The firearms-catalog retail giant MidwayUSA's Larry and Brenda Potterfield recently donated $1.6 million to the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation, a sizable investment in the future of shooting.

SSSF, which oversees the NSSF-developed Scholastic Clay Target Program, works to introduce school-age youths to the shooting sports. SCTP's growth over the past decade has been remarkable. The program has drawn comparisons to Little League, and it has introduced thousands of young Americans to the fun and excitement of shooting. "A donation like this from the Potterfields will go a long way in helping us achieve our mission of developing more young shooters and furthering the future of our sport," said Russ Arnold, SSSF's executive director. Learn more at

In other news, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which owns and operates the colossal Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show each year (The SHOT Show) has analyzed the FBI released National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figures for August 2010. NSSF-adjusted figures (718,971) show a 4.6 percent increase over August of last year (687,252).

The adjusted NICS data were derived by NSSF by subtracting out NICS "purpose-code" permit checks used by several states such as Kentucky and Utah for CCW permit application checks, as well as checks on active CCW permit databases.

Though not a direct correlation to firearms sales, the adjusted NICS data provide a more accurate picture of current market conditions. Questions concerning NSSF-adjusted NICS data should be directed to NSSF's research department at 203-426-1320 or In addition to other purposes, NICS is used to check transactions of firearms sales and transfers on new and used handguns and long guns.


7- Healthcare Poll Nonsense

The lamestream media told you:

Steven Thomma, writing for the McClatchy newspaper chain says, "A majority of Americans want Congress to keep the new health-care law or actually expand it, despite Republican claims that they have a mandate from the people to kill it, according to a new McClatchy Newspapers-Marist poll. The post-election survey indicated that 51 percent of registered voters want to keep the law or change it to do more...

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Polls like this are nonsense on their face, since even the members of Congress who signed the gigantic bill don't know what's in it. Asking people what they think of something they know nothing about is scandalous just on logical grounds.

Reporting about a bogus and manipulative propaganda effort like this might have merit. Using it as a news story, to provide support for a politician's waning popularity, is as serious an ethical breech as flat out lying. The all-too-common reporter excuse that, "I accurately reported what the survey said," is no excuse and just adds to the embarrassing humiliation that has become U.S. "news."

It's not known if the reporter helping to perpetrate the hoax was aware of how bad this is, or if he was duped just like his readers. It was not known at press time if any of the survey respondents could name even a dozen of the hundreds of provisions in the massive bill they say they like, or describe even a single item in it with any degree of accuracy.


8- Naming Criminals Nicely

The lamestream media told you:

Ex-White House Advisor to Speak at ASU: A controversial former advisor with the White House Council of Environmental Quality will speak on Thursday as part of ASU's Global Institute of Sustainability Wrigley Lecture Series.

"I can't tell you how many students have told me, 'he is my hero,' " said Lauren Kuby, manager of events and community engagement for the institute. "He has made sustainability not about just changing your light bulbs ... it is a movement that can really create jobs."

The event is co-sponsored by ASU's Undergraduate Student Government, which has been working on bringing the speaker to the campus since summer, said Tina Mounlavongsy, student government vice president of services. "We thought this would be a great event and we have gotten a lot of positive feedback so far from students," she said.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Van Jones, the disgraced self-avowed communist who was thrown out of Mr. Obama's White House under suspicious circumstances, was invited to speak at Arizona's largest state-sponsored university, with students and teachers alike naively cheering his arrival. No mention of his sordid anti-American past was evident in the publicity for the event. Hired to serve as a czar (the green czar) under Obama was poetic, since the convicted felon had "formed a socialist collective which championed the ideas of Marx and Lenin, and seized on the environmentalist movement as a vehicle for his extremist ideas," according to published reports.

ASU, proud of its school of sustainability, has failed to recognize that nothing is sustainable, because everything is consumptive. The laws of thermodynamics, which describe the nature of the universe, make it clear that since energy is always lost to any closed system, the very idea that something can be sustainable is impossible. It was not known at press time if the new ASU green school talks with the physics department.

In other news, great praise has been heaped on the "zero-emissions road race," an automobile race featuring totally electric cars. Missing from the reports is any mention that the "emissionless" cars need to be recharged, and that this is done by burning fuel that has to be mined and processed at great expense in energy, cost and emissions, so that some of the energy can be used to produce steam, so that some of the steam energy can turn a turbine, so that some of the physical motion can be turned into electricity, so that some of the electricity can be sent down transmission lines, so that some of it can be fed into the battery of the vehicle-that-has-zero-emissions-if-you-don't-look-past-its-accelerator-pedal.

Because the laws of physics (that is, the nature of the universe) show that energy is lost every time there is a conversion process, it is not clear if burning fuel directly in a car engine would yield lower emissions than that long process what I just said before.

Special letter from NRA Board of Directors members living in Arizona  --

On behalf of the five NRA Board Members who make Arizona their home (including two past presidents), we’re asking you to take a stand on gun rights and support the TrainMeAZ campaign now being organized.

Our new Constitutional Carry law changes everything. Now that any law-abiding adult in Arizona can discreetly carry firearms, Arizona leads the nation in demonstrated support for the Second Amendment. It’s in your interest as Arizonans, and the nation needs to know, what we’ve accomplished.

We have a priceless opportunity to launch “a culture of marksmanship” here in Arizona that can sweep across the country, but it can only happen with your direct involvement. Now that government no longer dictates the training environment, private enterprise and the free market should take advantage and fill that vacuum.

This will help your business, build your customer base, and bolster the right to keep and bear arms. By acting as a state instead of separately, we will present an image to the nation that pushes all our independent interests ahead...  Read the rest.

Armed and Female


This book changed the landscape -- one woman writing for other women, speaking in a voice women could hear, without the macho noise that turns women off. Paxton has been on every newscast you can name. The media hardly knows what to make of a woman who understands guns. Makes a perfect gift for someone you know.
