Minnesotans Score Small Victory in Civil Asset Forfeiture War

The number of those caught up in such illegal confiscations is legion. For instance, Tan Nguyen was driving home from Las Vegas, Nevada, with about $50,000 in cash, which he had won during his visits to several casinos. He was pulled over by officer Lee Dove for driving three miles an hour over the speed limit. The officer searched his car and found the cash, which he confiscated. When Nguyen protested, Dove threatened to seize and tow his car, leaving him stranded in the Nevada desert unless he “got in his car and drove off and forgot that this ever happened.” It was a daylight highway robbery and Nguyen sued.

A settlement was reached last week, and Humboldt County, Nevada, returned his money along with an extra $10,000 to pay for his legal expenses. IJ noted that Nevada’s current system allows police officers such as Lee Dove to “seize property under a legal standard lower than the beyond-a-reasonable-doubt standard used in criminal convictions.” In its “Policing for Profit” report, IJ also gives Nevada a rating of “D.”

In Virginia, a state police officer stopped Victor Luis Guzman for speeding on I-95 and confiscated $28,500 from him without charging him with any crime. The fact that he was transporting cash donations from his church didn’t matter. He had to sue to get the church’s money back.

In Florida, there is a stretch of highway now known as a “forfeiture corridor” on I-95 in Volusia County. Two “law enforcement” officers, Bob Vogel and Bill Smith, turned that stretch of highway into their own personal casino, with Vogel raking in more than $6.5 million before being caught. Two hours north on I-95, in Camden County, Georgia, Smith turned his “forfeiture corridor” into a $20 million payout over the past 20 years, using some of the money to buy himself a $90,000 Dodge Viper and build a “party house” for his friends.

FK – Such trash should be hunted and shot on sight.

GOA Calls for Resignation of VA Secretary Eric Shinseki

“The most recent reports now list that number [of disarmed veterans] around 175,000.” — Human Events, March 23, 2014

Within the past week, Gun Owners of America received an e-mail from a member being treated by the VA (Department of Veterans Affairs).  The member was also receiving Social Security benefits, and Social Security had appointed a guardian to manage his financial affairs.

The member wrote us because the VA, based on the Social Security guardian, was moving to take his guns away.

Although it is Standard Operating Procedure for the VA to appoint its own guardians and use this to justify its gun ban on more than 175,000 veterans, it now appears to us that the VA is searching for new “gun ban excuses” to strip even more veterans of their constitutional rights.

FK – Hanging of traitors by the county militia force should be standard procedure by now but we exist in a nation of cowardly whores.

North Korea criticizes U.S. for insufficiently oppressive gun laws

North Korea is one of the most brutally oppressive dictatorships in human history, so it’s certainly not surprising that the government is critical of the idea of allowing the people access to firearms. When you are condemned by North Korea, you know you have earned the honor of being despised by the despicable. And the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has found another ally to add to the list in advocacy of a “government monopoly on force”–everybody wins.

FK – Gee, one might think Amerikans would get a clue what their blood domestic enemies’ real intentions are. See my column below.

High school senior told he’s ‘not welcome’ at school after raising Gadsden flag

The incident, he said on Facebook, took place on May 9. That’s when he replaced the school’s flag with the yellow “Don’t Tread On Me” banner often associated with the Tea Party as a senior prank. He also posted a paper to the pole that told the history of the flag.

The prank didn’t sit too well with Jodie Diers, the principal of Central High School, who was livid over the prank. Other students, Stoneburner told Examiner, claimed she was angrily yelling to have the flag pulled down when she first saw it. According to Stoneburner, she pulled him out of a scholarship breakfast and told him and his parents the flag was a “slap in the face” to the school. She then said he was “not welcome” at Central High.

FK – What trash that principal is. It will have no problem doing whatever it thinks is necessary to preserve its commie indoctrination system.

At least he, or his parents, can still go buy the weapons and ammo he’s gonna need to fix this mess if it can be fixed. Have you bought enough?

I have only one thing to say to this kid: “WOLVERINES!!!!”

Are you naive enough to think ‘Amerikans’ won’t do these things to real Americans? Better THINK again.
