Lawyers attack government's conspiracy theory in Deming g...

Rick isn't stupid, he knew he was being watched and was being proactive. These misdeeds of the ATF are hopefully going to end soon; two new whistleblowers have offered information, Holder is coming up for a contempt vote, and the Seattle ATF office is under investigation for illegal and unethical activities.  (Jun 16, 2012 | post #2)

Christopher, how do you know they were "caught" ? Are you taking the BATFE/CIA/FBI's word for it? The same people who were caught in the Gunwalker/"Fa st&Furious " scandal? Invoking CIPA against Zambada's testimony? US soldiers guarding opium fields in Afghanistan? Not very credible sources. You have the right idea about Congress and the Presidents. Just extend your logic to the rest of government, and you'll see through the rest of the illusion.  (Dec 6, 2011 | post #22)

Occupy Wall St - Columbus, NM

like the tea party before it was co-opted, it aims to shut down the Fed, balance the budget, and restore Constitutional freedoms.  (Nov 23, 2011 | post #1)

Columbus, New Mexico woman indicted in gun smuggling case

Gabi, I don't believe them, and even if it's true how can they prosecute you for doing the same damned thing they did in project "Fast and Furious". Fight it and win.  (Oct 21, 2011 | post #1)

The LCSO is crooked, no doubt. The whole county government is corrupt, and they're no exception (although I've met some good eggs in the bunch). But I'll be really surprised if the Reeses are guilty of any wrongdoing, *unless* they cooperated with the BATFE on the Fast and Furious sales and the DOJ is hanging them out to dry instead of their own agents. You saw how quickly Andre Howard went public after the Reeses were arrested; he saw the writing on the wall. But let's say hypothetically that they *did* knowingly sell arms to the cartels? That's just what the BATFE wanted! Is it a crime to cooperate with a US Government agency?  (Oct 14, 2011 | post #16)

Support the Reese Family

I can't know your motivation, but I support the Reeses because, to the extent I know them, they have proven to be good people. I said, and still say, the same for the Gutierrez family, and if those members who were charged hadn't pled guilty, I'd still be maintaining their right to presumed innocence. Mayor Eddie also pled guilty, as did former police chief Angelo Vega. I have to admit presuming Vega was dirty, not because of his skin color but just based on my interactions with him and his buddy Valenzuela.  (Oct 9, 2011 | post #10)

police brutality in SR

sure, public intoxication is a crime, but harassing, and then brutally beating, a harmless drunk on his way home (walking) ought to be treated as criminal too. .com/watch?v=0PIhW 8h2J0Y&feature =player_embedded  (Oct 8, 2011 | post #1)

If you're a member, please contact anybody at NRA who can raise the priority on this. They *must* be aware of it though. I wrote Alan Korwin of, hoping he'd mention it in his Page 9 newsletter, but nothing so far.  (Oct 5, 2011 | post #4)

Bravo to Mark Macy for standing up against this injustice, and to the Headlight for publishing this. I'm going to stop calling the paper the "Dimlight "... for a while anyway. Could someone set something up online to receive donations for the Reese Defense Fund? I'll be glad to help with the technical aspects, and I'll provide a webpage, but someone will have to open a PayPal or other account to receive the funds; someone who can be trusted to actually deposit the money to the fund and contribute to the defense of the Reeses.  (Oct 5, 2011 | post #3)

Election Poll, Sept 2011 - Columbus, NM

typical rigged Topix poll, with only the candidates from which *they* want you to choose. put Paul and/or Johnson on there, not just those cookie-cutter red and blue wind-up toys. anybody know a way to comment on these polls for your own city? to post this, I had to pick a city then edit the URL to replace the city name with "columbus-nm ", resulting in http://www.topix.c om/issue/election- checkpoint-sept-11 /columbus-nm  (Sep 23, 2011 | post #1)

Agents raid New Deal Shooting Sports

Quite possibly, but it's also possible he was trying to probe the agent for information by appearing be on their side. Anyway, after the Reeses were arrested he must have thought he'd be next, and went public with what he had. He may have been right: http://www.foxnews .com/politics/2011 /09/21/audio-tapes -reveal-more-detai ls-in-fast-and-fur ious-gunrunner-sca ndal/ ends with "But ATF officials are quoted in a Washington Post article and the Spanish language daily La Opinion saying just the opposite -- blaming Lone Wolf for "selling guns to the cartels" with no mention that Howard was operating under the federal government's direction, encouragement and approval."  (Sep 22, 2011 | post #73)

Gun store raided in Deming

Yep. The BATF doesn't want anyone else to do what Andre Howard did. It wouldn't surprise me if the Reese incident was what triggered Howard to open up to the media, thinking he would be next. I'm hoping a few dozen others join the chorus, and soon.  (Sep 12, 2011 | post #51)
