Of Course Democrats Spy on Americans

Potentially Illegal Gingrich Tape Turned Over To Criminal Investigators

The Florida couple, , confirmed they gave a tape of an intercepted cell phone conversation among House Speaker Newt Gingrich and his top allies to McDermott, the senior Democrat on the House ethics committee.

In a news conference, John and Alice Martin said they overheard the conversation on a police scanner in their car during a Christmas shopping trip and after three or four minutes, decided to tape it.

At first, Mrs. Martin said, they simply thought it would “neat” to have a tape of important people speaking for a soon-to-be-born grandson. Afterward, however, they thought it might be important for the ethics committee to hear.

“We just felt that somebody needed to hear it besides us,” said John Martin.

The couple, who are Democratic activists in their home state, turned it over to McDermott during a Washington, D.C., visit to witness the swearing-in of a new Florida congressman.

The Martins’ attorney, Larry Turner, said it’s illegal under federal and Florida law to eavesdrop on regular or cell phone conversations, and there is a chance the couple will be prosecuted. Asked if she was concerned about that, an obviously nervous Mrs. Martin said, “Yeah. I guess we have to be.”

Turner, however, said he hopes authorities will not prosecute because the couple was trying to do what they thought was right when they turned over the tape.

“If they determine to prosecute it, we’ll defend it,” the attorney said.

Even before the afternoon news conference, Republicans believed McDermott, who represents the Seattle, Washington, area, was responsible for leaking the tape to the news media. The tape was provided to The New York Times and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and both reported on its contents last week.

The conversation, held by Gingrich and other Republicans on Dec. 21, took place the same day the speaker admitted to ethical errors and promised not to organize a defensive strategy with other GOP leaders. Democrats point to the tape as evidence that Gingrich violated his promise. Republicans say it proves Gingrich was not involved in plotting strategy.

The Times reported that the tape was obtained by a Democratic congressman who is unfriendly to Gingrich. A GOP source told CNN that “it is totally in the hands of the Democrats to disprove that McDermott was behind the tape release. He hasn’t denied anything, and it looks like the ranking Democrat on the committee has corrupted the ethics process.” McDermott declined to comment to TIME, which this week also identified him as a leading suspect in its release.

The Martins nabbed signals destined for the cellular phone of House Republican Caucus Chairman John Boehner of Ohio. He was listening to the call while parked in a restaurant parking lot in Florida. According to the source, Boehner has not precluded the possibility of filing ethics charges in the matter of the recorded phone call. Rep. Henry Hyde of Illinois and other Republicans asked Attorney General Janet Reno to refer the tape of the intercepted phone call to the Justice Department’s criminal division for investigation, because it is illegal to secretly record telephone conversations.

 

The Martins ended up being fined $1,000 for their criminal action.

Not a single Elected Democrat was outraged by this activity.

If I recall correctly, the criminal Ma & Pa Martin team just happened to have a scanner in their car, just happened to pick up this call, just happened to to have a tape recorder and the scanner just happened to be illegally modified to catch cell phone calls.

Do you think this was a one off?

We know for a fact that the Obama administration illegally spied on American citizens via the abuse at the NSA.

Yes, that is a fact.

The only question is the extent of the gross abuses at the NSA.

I was NEVER a supporter of the Patriot Act and I even said when it was being “debated”, that Democrats would use the information for political gain.

BECAUSE THAT’S WHO THEY ARE !!!!!!!!!

B-17 “Aluminum Overcast”

This is another post that has been in que for a long time !!! (2014)

I live “near” the Aurora Municipal Airport”.

The airport sometimes has fly ins with classic military airplanes.  The really cool thing is on most days the classic airplanes are in town and flying, my house is on the landing path and I get to see (and hear) the planes coming in low and slow over my house which is really pretty cool !!!

I believe this visit by the “Aluminum Overcast” was Memorial Day weekend 2014 and we took a drive to the airport to see the plane up close.

It was a beautiful day and there was a good size crowd there to see the plane.  I’ve seen B17s at the airport before, but this is the first time I paid to walk through the plane.

The cockpit.

Now, at this time in my life, I am a full figured adult and there is no way that I would be able to sit in that pilot’s seat for a 8-10 hour mission !!

Even at the time in my life when I could have been in the military, (18-26) at 6 foot and 190 pounds, that still would have been a very tight fit for any position on the plane.

This is obviously not the plane that George Bush flew in WWII.

You could pay to take a flight in this plane.

If you could have seen the look of the man in the rear gunner seat after they landed, you would know that it was money well spent for him !

Drug Addled, Publicity Seeking Has Beens Rebuke Trump For Use Of “Crazy Train”

https://ultimateclassicrock.com/donald-trump-ozzy-osbourne-crazy-train/

Earlier today (June 27), President Donald Trump tweeted out a video that used Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train.” In response, Sharon Osbourne, Ozzy’s wife and manager, has issued a statement saying that Ozzy’s music cannot be used by the Trump campaign.

We received a press release from Sharon that read, “Based on this morning’s unauthorized use of Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Crazy Train,’ we are sending notice to the Trump campaign (or any other campaigns) that they are forbidden from using any of Ozzy Osbourne’s music in political ads or in any political campaigns. Ozzy’s music cannot be used for any means without approvals

 

MAN!!!!!

Who would LOVE to see Trump buy the rights??????

Kind of like Rush Limbaugh using a Pretenders song as his theme.

The Google Fascists

The Google Fascists (no better word to describe them)

https://spectator.org/the-google-fascists/

The story is pretty simple.

Google (and Liberals and other monopolistic tech companies) deny bias against non liberals.

Proof of the bias is given.

Google censors the proof.

The irony, it burns.

Until the 2020 election is over:

RELEASE THE KRAKEN AND SCORCH THE LAND !!!

My First Chick-Fil-A

Chick-Fil-A moved into my area probably 10 years ago and I had never taken the opportunity to eat there.  We had some errands to run and my daughter wanted to eat at Chick-fil-a so we did. (She’s eaten there before)

I ordered a # 1:

Chick_fil_A

First, I didn’t like that the chicken sammich was served in a foil bag.  Seriously?  That’s just going to steam the bun to mush and uncrisp the fried chicken.  The waffle fries were great.

Not saying this was a bad sammich, but it didn’t really impress me.  Oh, I will definitely be going back and trying some more food and hopefully it will impress me !!

Chick-Fil-A Celebrates Pride Month By Serving Delicious Chicken Sandwiches To Everyone Just Like All The Other Months

Chick-Fil-A Celebrates Pride Month By Serving Delicious Chicken Sandwiches To Everyone Just Like All The Other Months

 

U.S.—Chick-Fil-A restaurants are celebrating the LGBT pride movement all month long by serving delicious chicken sandwiches to everyone without discriminating.

Restaurant spokespeople didn’t even announce the program. They just kept serving chicken sandwiches, offering customers a good value for their money, and providing stellar customer service. When asked about their Pride Month plans, a spokesperson shrugged and said, “Uh, just come in and have some food and we’ll give it to you at a reasonable price and make sure you have a positive experience. We won’t even ask about your orientation. So, uh, yeah. We’ll keep doing what we do.”

“It’s kinda weird,” said one gay customer. “Their logo isn’t a rainbow on social media. They don’t have any special signage telling me that I’m special. But all the same, I walked in, they happily served me food, and I went on my way.”

“I’m not sure if I should be offended or impressed,” he added, shrugging. “I guess I’ll have to go back and get some more nuggets as I think over my feelings about this unique way to celebrate Pride Month.”

After Pride Month is over, the restaurant will reportedly just keep serving excellent food.

Smith & Wesson 380 EZ

I’ve had my conceal carry now for just over a year.  For the past year, my EDC was a S&W Compact 22 LR. Lots and lots of reasons for a 22 LR.  First, cheap ammo.  I am currently paying 4.3 cents a round and that is considerably less than any other caliber which means for the same money, I can shoot 6-8 times more.  That is a very important factor in that since I shoot almost weekly, I am a gosh darn good shot.  No, I will never be a marksman, sniper, trick shot artist or shoot dime sized groups on paper, but I will be able to put multiple rounds in the vital areas of a human.  Second, and this relates to the last statement made, low recoil.  “Putting rounds on target!!!”  For a lot less money, I can practice my sight alignment and trigger pulls.

I was perfectly confident in carrying my 22 LR every day but for some reason, I went and purchased a larger caliber gun.

The Smith & Wesson EZ 380.

S_W_380_EZ.gif

It’s made with the S&W compact frame style so it’s almost identical in feel as the Compact 22 LR.  Instead of having a magazine safety, it has a grip safety.  I like that feature because I take my gun into the gym I go to and like that it’s not likely to go off spontaneously in my gym bag.   Also like the Compact 22 LR, it has a thumb safety.  I WILL NOT OWN A GUN WITHOUT A THUMB SAFETY.  Yeah I know I’m the odd man with that as most shooters are the exact opposite.

I checked out a lot of online reviews and watched a lot of Youtube videos about the 380 EZ.

Most of them went like this:

“It’s a great gun, FOR YOUR MOTHER.”

“It’s a great gun, FOR YOUR SISTER.”

“It’s a great gun, FOR YOUR GRANDMOTHER.”

“It’s a great gun, IF YOU ARE A PUSSY AND CAN’T CARRY A .45.”

 

S_W_380

The 380 EZ holds 8+1 and above is my second time shooting it.  The first time it shot way left and by GOD the allen screw that holds the rear sight for adjustment was soooooooo tight I had to use pliers on the allen wrench to loosen it !!  But, it’s now adjusted and sighted in.  The right target was at 7 yards and the left target was at 5 yards with double tapping (4 1/2 inch circles).  So far, I am very satisfied with this gun.  Like I said earlier, my goal is not to shoot dime sized groups on paper, but to be able to hit a man sized target.

I don’t plan on shooting this gun a lot, I think I can keep shooting the Compact 22 as my primary practice gun and shoot a couple of mags a week of the 380 to keep it in tune.
