Toms River, New Jersey Boy, 4, Accidentally Shot 6-Year-Old Neighbor In Head: Police
TOMS RIVER, N.J.— Authorities are deciding whether to charge anyone after police say a 6-year-old was shot in the head by a 4-year-old in New Jersey.
The older boy is in serious condition.
Authorities are still investigating how the younger child obtained the .22-caliber rifle from his family's Toms River home Monday night.
Police Chief Michael Mastronardy says the children were outside the 4-year-old's home when the boy went inside, got the rifle and shot the 6-year-old about 15 yards away. It's not clear if the 4-year-old pulled the trigger or if the rifle accidentally discharged.
The parents of the 4-year-old were home at the time.

Newark - Three people were shot at a late night baby shower on April 8, 2013 bringing the total of deaths at baby showers in this city to 100 for April. Kamisha Jones, age 17, was the guest of honor at her third baby shower in two years, when two youths argued over who the father of the second baby was and shots rang out in the hallway. Thirty year old Grandmothers and teen baby daddies scattered as bullets flew. This followed a second night of hallway violence when rival gangs looked at each other the wrong way. Police collected bullet fragments among the chicken bones strewn into the elevator shaft. Neighbors said they never let their young children venture out past 2:00 a.m. on a weeknight due to the continuous violence.

If more Americans would just watch more foreign films, the history and horrors of Communism would open up many eyes.
A Chinese drama directed by Chen Kaige that won Best Film at the Cannes Film Festival, "Farewell, My Concubine", accurately depicts how Communism changes even loyal friends and spouses out of fear.
"Camp 14: Total Control Zone" is a true story about Shin Dong-Huyk who was born inside a North Korean prison camp. The only world he knew was one of punishment, torture and abuse beyond imagination until he managed to escape at the age of 20.
More eyes need to be opened in this country. Tyranny always starts out as nonthreatening. As does government control and loyalty to the state.
It's always too late when enough people succomb to the propaganda.
Both these films are on Netflix.
Even less tyrannical regimes but total government control, such as Chavez's Venezuela, has an unpleasant ending.
He started out convincing enough people that he only cared about the poor too until the headlines read, "Venezuelans protest Chavez's power grabs that voters rejected."

Yes, we should always learn from fictional films - because dramatized history is "close enough."

Rather, we should have the serious history classes they have in other countries, and learn our place in the history of the world.

Blood Money: Obama Contributor Ran Fast and Furious

Scandal: A campaign contributor who was an architect of the 1994 assault weapons ban was the mastermind behind the Fast and Furious operation that let guns walk into Mexico, including those that killed two U.S. agents.

Shortly after the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry on Dec. 15, 2010, Attorney General Eric Holder's deputy chief of staff, Monty Wilkinson, received an email from U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke telling him just that: "The guns found in the desert near the murder(ed) BP officer connect back to the investigation we were going to talk about — they were AK-47s purchased at a Phoenix gun store."

Burke, who resigned shortly after the scandal became public, has long been a gun-ban architect for the Democratic Party.

Connecting the dots …

It appears that Attorney General Eric Holder knew more than he was telling Congress. There is little or no doubt in my mind that he should be held accountable for perjury as well as for any obstruction of justice that might have occurred in the cover-up phase of hiding the details of the operation.

It is also possible that President Obama knew of the operation and may be running Nixonian-style interference in the obstruction of justice investigation.

And as for Dennis Burke, he still has significant influence with Janet Napolitano who heads the most powerful civilian agency in the government, the Department of Homeland Defense.

“As a lawyer for the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, he was behind the ineffectual 1994 ‘assault weapon’ ban that sunset in 2004. Burke was also the chief of staff for Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano for a number of years before she became the secretary of homeland security. Burke would leave that Gov. Napolitano post to join the Obama transition team. He was soon rewarded for his many contributions, monetary and otherwise, when on July 10, 2009, the president nominated him to be the U.S. attorney in Arizona.

It appears that you can’t trust the democrats to protect the sovereignty of our nation or the citizens of the United States when it comes to foreign illegal aliens. I just hope that Darryl Issa is unlike the majority of other republicans who back off the fight at the last minute and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Original Blog Entry …

As a result of publishing my previous blog entry “Obama's NEW BIRTH CERTIFICATE?: exerts executive privilege over 'Fast and Furious' Documents ..., I have been asked by a number of readers to speculate on the meaning of what has happened rather than just condemning it.

OK – with the caveat that this is just my speculative opinion and I could be grossly wrong ...

I believe that President Obama may be applying the concept of Executive Privilege to protect Presidential conversations with his advisors.

Because I think is that certain advisors plotted among themselves and possibly with the President of the United States to undermine the Second Amendment of the United States. Primarily by flooding Mexico with “traceable” guns that would point back to gun sales vendors in the United States. Followed by a call for stricter gun registration and regulation.

Why? Because most of the claims that gun sales vendors in the United States were supplying murderous Mexican cartels were proved to be false or overstated. It appears that most of the weapons were untraceable and some were found to have been sourced by Central and South America arms dealers. Therefore, in order to trace guns back to the United States, traceable guns needed to be put in the hands of the Mexican cartels.http://www.onecitizens peaking.com/2012/06/executive- privilege-what-is-holder-hidin g.html

On January 30, 2010, a commando of at least 20 hit men parked themselves outside a birthday party of high school and college students in Villas de Salvarcar, Ciudad Juarez. Near midnight, the assassins, later identified as hired guns for the Mexican cartel La Linea, broke into a one-story house and opened fire on a gathering of nearly 60 teenagers. Outside, lookouts gunned down a screaming neighbor and several students who had managed to escape. Fourteen young men and women were killed, and 12 more were wounded before the hit men finally fled.

Indirectly, the United States government played a role in the massacre by supplying some of the firearms used by the cartel murderers. Three of the high caliber weapons fired that night in Villas de Salvarcar were linked to a gun tracing operation run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), according to a Mexican army document obtained exclusively by Univision News.

Univision News identified a total of 57 more previously unreported firearms that were bought by straw purchasers monitored by ATF during Operation Fast and Furious, and then recovered in Mexico in sites related to murders, kidnappings, and at least one other massacre.

As part of Operation Fast and Furious, ATF allowed 1,961 guns to "walk" out of the U.S. in an effort to identify the high profile cartel leaders who received them. The agency eventually lost track of the weapons, and they often ended up in the hands of Mexican hit men , including those who ordered and carried out the attack on Salvarcar and El Aliviane, a rehabilitation center in Ciudad Juarez where 18 young men were killed on September 2, 2009.

In Mexico, the timing of the operation coincided with an upsurge of violence in the war among the country's strongest cartels. In 2009, the northern Mexican states served as a battlefield for the Sinaloa and Juarez drug trafficking organizations, and as expansion territory for the increasingly powerful Zetas. According to documents obtained by Univision News, from October of that year to the end of 2010, nearly 175 weapons from Operation Fast and Furious inadvertently armed the various warring factions across northern Mexico.

"Many weapons cross the border and enter Mexico, but that [Fast and Furious] number, quantity and type of weapons had quite an impact in the war in this area" Jose Wall, an ATF agent stationed in Tijuana from 2009 to 2011, told Univision News.

Following the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry at the hands of Mexican bandits on December 14, 2010, media and Congressional investigations prompted hearings. On September 20, the U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General report, which opened the door for sanctions of 14 ATF and DOJ officials.

peration Fast and Furious and the Massacre of Mexican Kids

As Benghazigate continues to heat up, so too does the Operation Fast and Furious scandal. The gun-running operation was previously connected to the killing of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry after weapons found at the crime scene were traced back to a gun-walking scheme overseen by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Now a bombshell report that the Spanish language television news network Univision aired on Sunday evening has linked more of the program’s guns to the massacre of at least fourteen Mexican youths and to other horrific crimes committed by Mexican drug rings against innocent Mexican citizens.

ATF is a division of Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department. This agency, for which Holder is ultimately responsible, decided to use unsavory gun smugglers as intermediaries in the movement of guns the smugglers purchased from federally licensed firearms dealers in Arizona and sold to Mexican drug cartels. The idea was allegedly to follow the trail of the guns to locate the drug lords and put them out of business. Instead, the drug lords used the guns provided to them courtesy of ATF to continue their rampage of killings.

n April 2009, Holder delivered a speech at the Mexico/United States Arms Trafficking Conference held in Cuernavaca, Mexico. He said that he was “committed to putting the resources in place to increase our attack on arms trafficking into Mexico” and promised that the United States “will take responsibility by joining our Mexican counterparts in every step of this fight” against the Mexican drug cartels.

What happened instead? The ATF launched Operation Fast and Furious in the fall of 2009 without informing the Mexican government.

On January 30, 2010, according to the Univision report, hired hit men working for the Mexican cartel La Linea invaded a house and opened fire on nearly 60 teenagers who had gathered there for a birthday party. More shootings occurred outside against neighbors and fleeing students. Univision reported that three of the high-caliber weapons used by the hit men were linked to Operation Fast and Furious.

This massacre does not appear to be an isolated incident. There is a disturbing pattern in which the ATF lost track of weapons provided to Mexican drug cartels via straw purchasers, some of which later ended up at crime scenes in Mexico. In other words, it allowed suspects to walk away with illegally purchased guns in order to try and catch bigger fish. But the big fish got away as well after using the guns to kill their prey.

“Many weapons cross the border and enter Mexico, but that [Fast and Furious] number, quantity and type of weapons had quite an impact in the war in this area” Jose Wall, an ATF agent stationed in Tijuana from 2009 to 2011, told Univision News.

Univision News reported that it had “identified a total of 57 more previously unreported firearms that were bought by straw purchasers monitored by ATF during Operation Fast and Furious, and then recovered in Mexico in sites related to murders, kidnappings, and at least one other massacre.”

Displaying the best of journalistic investigative reporting, Univision compared two lists and found some significant overlaps that had eluded congressional investigators – the list of serial numbers for weapons used in Fast and Furious and the list of guns seized in Mexico.

Mexican government officials claim that at least three hundred people in Mexico were killed with Fast and Furious weapons.

At least as far back as March 2010, some ATF agents were raising alarm bells about the operation, but were ignored by their superiors. ATF agents stationed in Mexico also expressed concern as they were aware that a large number of weapons being recovered at bloody crime scenes in Mexico were traced back to the beginning of the Operation Fast and Furious pipeline in Arizona. Still the operation continued.

Operation Fast and Furious and the Massacre of Mexican Kids

Finally, when two rifles sold to a smuggler in the course of Operation Fast and Furious ended up at the scene of Brian Terry’s murder in December 2010, the lid on the secret operation blew open. It was revealed to the public in January 2011 and suspended in early 2011.

1,430 guns remain on the streets.

When congressional committees in the House and Senate began inquiring in early 2011 into the Fast and Furious operation following the death of Brian Terry, the Justice Department’s first response was to deny in writing that it ever allowed any guns to “walk” across the Mexican border. That turned out to be false. The Justice Department later withdrew its letter.

On March 22, 2011, President Obama was asked about Operation Fast and Furious on Univision.

“Well, first of all, I did not authorize it,” Obama told Univision.“Eric Holder, the attorney general, did not authorize it. There may be a situation here in which a serious mistake was made. If that’s the case, then we’ll find– find out and we’ll hold somebody accountable.”

Univision has now reported the truly horrific impact of the Fast and Furious fiasco on innocent Mexican citizens who lost their lives by gunmen armed with Fast and Furious weapons. Dozens, if not more, including many innocent children, were murdered with weapons sold by our government through intermediaries to drug cartels without the means to carefully track and control the flow. Brian Terry is dead, and his family still is waiting for a truthful explanation of the role that Operation Fast and Furious may have played in his death.

Yet Holder continues to stonewall Congress in its investigation of what went wrong with the operation, refusing to turn over thousands of pages of documents. Holder is relying on spurious executive privilege grounds asserted by President Obama, who had promised Univision that he would make sure to “hold somebody accountable.”

Holder believes that a recently released report from the Justice Department’s Inspector General, Michael Horowitz,“exonerates” or “clears” him from being held accountable for what happened. While it is true the Inspector General report did indicate that Holder was not informed of Operation Fast and Furious until February 2011, that does not relieve Holder of responsibility both for the incredible mismanagement under his watch and the obstruction of the investigations that followed.

Lil Kim might actually try to fire one or two of his Musudan missiles in honor of his gramps Big Un's b'day April 10.

This could be fun to watch as Korea has never launched one of these liquid fueled irbm's which have been relegated to the Pyongyang parade route for years. Amazing actually that the haulers made it all the way to the nations East coast in only four days.

So__the US has maneuvered a massive ocean radar platform into the waters off Korea and has a couple ships in the region that can easily shoot down a Musudan should it go astray.

How pizzed will the young-un be if the missiles blow up on the pad?
