Sweden is soooo screwed...

The situation in the gang-controlled no-go zones of Sweden is deteriorating rapidly. Following the police report conceding the areas to the primarily Muslim immigrant gangs, the Swedish ambulance union is now demanding military grade protection gear to enter the no-go zones.

There have been a number of violent incidents lately, where thugs attack ambulances responding to calls in the zones. Thugs have slashed the tires of the ambulances, smashed their windshields and hurled large rocks from overpasses, while the paramedics themselves are subjected to both armed and unarmed physical violence on a regular basis. The situation has become so dire that the ambulance union now demands dramatically improved protection for its members.
Despite being a small country of less than 10 million citizens, a 2012 study showed an average of one school being burned per day in Sweden, costing tax payers upwards of half a billion SEK annually. By comparison, Greece has 11 million citizens and averages only five school fires per year.

Not even the police are safe from attacks. In May 2014, two police officers were cornered by 50 thugs in the no-go zone of Landskrona. They pulled their weapons to hold off the attackers and called for backup, but the police commander refused to send in backup, fearing escalation. One of the officers knew a few locals who intervened and convinced the gang to let the officers escape.

The Swedes have spent a long time protecting muslims from being held to norms; this is the end result.  Just how damned stupid is this PC idiocy?
(12 year old)...He was unaware she lived in a no-go zone, and when he exited the station he was promptly stopped by seven grown immigrants. They declared that no whites were allowed and proceeded to attack him while hurling anti-white slurs.

Swedish law states that the incident is not a hate crime. The law does not apply to an immigrant targeting a native Swede, even if an immigrant does so while explicitly stating they are doing it for racial reasons. However, the reverse situation with a native Swede saying a slur that could be perceived as racist has severe civil and criminal charges.
Never equal. FAVORED treatment.  And this is what results.

Well, this is encouraging as all hell, isn't it?

This week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that at least four of its websites have been compromised by what NOAA spokesperson Scott Smullen calls "an internet-sourced attack." The breaches occurred in September, but NOAA didn't publicly announce them until late Tuesday. In fact, initially the organization claimed that the network outages were part of routine maintenance, and at least one governmental official is questioning why the breach wasn't immediately reported to the Department of Homeland Security, as any federal organization is required to do in such an instance.

Smullen won't say why the agency hid the breach, nor will he comment on how the attack occurred and what information was compromised. Industry insiders speculate that some of the information probably related to weather satellites ground networks. They say the NWS warning service could have been affected as well

Ah, the public school system...

Attorneys for the district argued that the 14-year-old should be held responsible for a sexual relationship with a teacher and thus deserved no money for emotional trauma. They also presented the girl's sexual history in court—and won the case.
I'll bet the clowns involved have a history of "We must end the War On Women!" support, too.

So it's official in the PROM: Yes, dumbass, a US Passport is proof of identity.

The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee needs an intervention

involving tar and feathers.
The solutions included “comprehensive” obesity interventions in “health care, the community, public health facilities, and work sites.”

“The public should monitor body weight and engage with providers in evidence-based approaches aimed at achieving and maintaining healthy body weight,” the panel said in a presentation on “Food and Nutrient Intakes, and Health.”

The committee, which is responsible for creating new nutrition standards that are used to create policy at the federal level, has previously called for moving Americans to “plant-based” diets, and using text message interventions to get people to lose weight.
"We want to run the food tyranny.  For your own good, of course."

And it gets better:
The committee said it is “imperative” to create obesity interventions that would bring in “trained interventionists and professional nutrition service providers” for “delivery in multiple settings.
'We will nag you at work.  We will nag you at home.  We will threaten home life, we will nag you everywhere!'
The panel claimed that 65 percent of adult females and 70 percent of adult males are overweight or obese, and argued that “environmental strategies” are needed to fight obesity.
And there we have it; 'You need to eat the way we say to Save The Planet!'

And they're after your kids:
Dr. Anna Maria Siega-Riz, a nutritional epidemiologist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, agreed and called for more monitoring of children’s weight, and for mandatory doctors visits.
“Not just going with schools, but when we think about the health care system, there are very little check ups required for kids,” Siega-Riz said. “We can make a strong call for more monitoring and help for this population before they actually carry out these outcomes for the rest of their lives.”
And if you're not feeding the family the way they say, they'll threaten to take the kids.  You doubt it?  I don't.

Back to Saving The Planet:
The committee has been criticized for putting environmentalism over food science. Angela Tagtow, who was appointed to oversee DGAC this summer, has called for “social justice” in food policy and says she takes an “ecological” approach to nutrition.
Thus the progzis strike again.

Let's see... this is a continuation of the bullshit that pushed people to eat less fat and meat and LOTS more carbohydrates, which is largely behind the obesity problem, and they want more of the same.  They screamed 'fat is BAD!' for decades, when the research AT BEST couldn't prove that, and at worst was bullshit.  And they won't stop, they want the .gov- and themselves- EVEN MORE IN CONTROL of what you eat.

Screw the tar & feathers, let's move straight to floggings followed by ropes and trees.

And now, for the rest of the research staff,

Data for the female(mostly) researchers

That settles that: I wouldn't buy a Taurus anything

until I know their quality control process has been revamped from top to bottom.  They sold this shit to cops in their own country?
Yes, this originally came out about a year ago; it appears as late as this summer this crap still wasn't fixed.  And it wasn't just pistols that had the problems.

Why I don't like Social Justice Warriors

Go read.  A taste:
The SJWs say they stand for equality. Only they don’t. That’s a smoke screen. They are champions of diversity, provided that everyone is diverse in exactly the same approved manner. At their core they are petty, vengeful, tyrannical thought police, who simply can’t abide someone sinning. They’re an unholy cross between puritans and communists, with a heavy dose of Zanax, and severe self-esteem issues.

Social Justice Warriors are control freaks. Nothing more. Their bizarre antics have given true feminists a bad name. Their mad accusations of racism against anything and everything causes real racism to get lost in the background noise. By accusing well meaning, good intentioned individuals of horrible crimes, they legitimize and empower the real criminals.

And remember that idiot with the "I hate white bellydancers" whining about 'cultural appropriation'?
For those who end up on the shun list, if you have a minority character you are guilty of “tokenism” or worse, “cultural appropriation” which is a totally asinine concept, especially in a nation based upon cultural appropriating every winning idea and strategy in the history of the world. My children are Portuguese, Danish, Finnish, Russian, Jew, Mormons, descended from conquistadors, Vikings, cowboys, pioneers, and prophets, and we had Indian food for dinner last night before watching a Japanese TV show while I glued together pieces of a Spanish war game. My ancestors introduced the chili pepper to Thailand and my wife’s ancestors were legal to shoot on sight in Missouri. Who the hell do you think you are to tell an American not to culturally appropriate stuff?

Combination: Why registration is bullshit, and Why you're not seen as Officer Friendly anymore

Because nothing says "We're your Caring Police Department" than harassing a family right after(or maybe before) a funeral because the deceased had a registered firearm, or firearm license.

"We're the people stealing the property of the deceased.  Because the family can't be trusted.  And because we can get away with it.  Because Public Safety."
So, what’s happening crime-wise while the cops prioritize looting familes of their dead relatives’ property? Well, they’re not trying very hard to solve crimes. There are forty to sixty murders in Buffalo every year. In 2014 there have been 41 murders so far, of which the Buffalo flatfeet have solved a whopping 11 — 26.83%. But hey, maybe they’re waiting for leads. They did better with 2013 murders, so far, clearing 13 murders. That’s out of 47, for a staggering 27.66%. In other words, if the doer isn’t a brain-dead skell standing there covered in blood when a patrol car rolls up, this department probably isn’t going to catch him. Ever.

Consider this: if you get murdered in Buffalo, Derenda will send cops to take your guns while your relatives are still trying to find a funeral home that isn’t solidly booked with other murder victims. But he won’t put anywhere near that much emphasis on his department’s half-hearted half-effort to find your killer.

Most of the major media at work: "Story? What story?

Really nothing here to see, just move along."
They really don't like it when the truth comes out and they get called for trying to ignore it, do they?

Dukakis... and the man was nearly President... As governor,
What was the Duke’s administration like? Think one too many Dr. Tom Friedens. The brilliance of Joe Biden, leavened with the ethics of Lois Lerner and the even-handed justice of Eric Holder.

Hey, Mr. "You can trust us not to abuse having a backdoor into your phone" FBI director:
We're supposed to trust a word you say, ANY of you, why again?

I've got two questions for Napolitano

Lynch is sure to be confirmed by either the present Democratic-controlled Senate this fall or by the newly constituted Republican-controlled Senate early next year—and she should be.
Why?  Because President Lightbringer wants her, and that overrides all else?  Bullshit.

... If she agrees that the Constitution is not a neutral instrument as between the people and the government because it was written to keep the government off our backs, she will be an antidote to Obama's law breaking.

But I think I may be wishing for too much. She is, after all, his nominee.
So if she demonstrates she's another Holder, why SHOULD she be confirmed?  Just because Obama wants her?  Again, bullshit.

And the first one who insists 'The Stupid Party must play by polite rules, even if the Evil Party doesn't' gets told they're a fool.

So Swimmer Kennedy ripped off Medicaid

to 'pay' for Romneycare because it would've broken that state.  And this asshole Gruber was right in the middle of it.
“We had a pretty powerful senator you may have heard of named Ted Kennedy,” Gruber said during an event at Simmons College in February. ”Ted Kennedy had managed to figure out a way to rip off the federal Medicaid program to the tune of about $500 million a year through a series of strange manipulations.

“Here was Mitt Romney’s dirty little secret that we don’t like to talk about in Massachusetts, which is the way we passed our law is the federal government paid for it.

And, not really a surprise, Bush 41 helped the bastards.
“George Bush said why am I sending this Democrat $500 million a year, I’m taking it back,” Gruber explained, adding “Mitt Romney to his credit went to George Bush and said, look, can we keep the money if we use it for universal coverage. And Bush to his credit said yes.”
Lying, backstabbing sonsabitches all the way 'round.   Apparently Bush didn't think stealing from the rest of the country was a bad thing if it was for a 'good cause' or something.

Brownell's is having a sale

on bulk rifle bullets.  Sierra, multiple calibers and weights

Cries of 'Victim blaming!' and such begin in 3, 2, 1...

“[D]on’t drink so damn much,” Marcus wrote as advice from a parent to their daughter leaving for college.

That advice is crucial because, as Marcus wrote, “the line between consensual sex and sexual assault is not always comfortably clear.”

That telling your teenage daughter not to get drunk at parties is condemned...

“A rule not ultimately backed by the threat of violence is merely a suggestion. States rely on laws enforced by men ready to do violence against lawbreakers. Every tax, every code and every licensing requirement demands an escalating progression of penalties that, in the end, must result in the forcible seizure of property or imprisonment by armed men prepared to do violence in the event of resistance or non–compliance. Every time a soccer mom stands up and demands harsher penalties for drunk driving, or selling cigarettes to minors, or owning a pit bull, or not recycling, she is petitioning the state to use force to impose her will. She is no longer asking nicely.”

Connected, from a while back:
I would like politicians and bureaucrats to acknowledge this: Every law, rule, and regulation made by the government ends in puppy killing SWAT Teams. Every dime that is spent in our name was taken at gunpoint. 

I want them to understand that every action they take has this statement as a footnote: “This is important enough that my grandmother should be killed if she does not abide.”

Next time someone starts bitching about about people owning guns causing crime, point them to this piece Tam linked to, which includes
So let’s do the math: We have a gang-affiliated dude who tries to murder four rivals in an effort to advance his fortunes within his gang, who confesses to the crime and his motive, who is caught red handed with the weapon used to commit the crimes, and the added bonus of having endangered a bunch of other innocent people in addition to the ones he did intend to kill…and he’s going to be out on the street again in a year and a half.
The reasoning of Judge Michael Gary is…well…read it for yourself:
“You turned to a gang for family support, for support in your life. And that is where we are failing as a society…You are a nobody in terms of that gang. You are literally an instrument of somebody who has far more power than you…Mr. Benjamin, as I said, is a boy, not a man yet.”

I should point out at this point that Mr. Benjamin is, in fact, 22 years old.
Note how some of the most violent places in America, the places the professionally outraged are always citing as evidence of society’s failure to do enough and reasons why we need to have more gun laws, don’t actually make much of an effort to prosecute violations of existing gun laws. Gee whiz, fellas…you think maybe there’s a pattern here? Like maybe the willingness to just not bother prosecuting violations of law that carry serious time behind them, a habit of downgrading charges on serious crimes, and jurists who seem to insist on treating 22 year old gangbangers who shoot up neighborhoods like a misbehaving 7 year old could have some correlation to the level of violence taking place in these areas?

Speaking of such dirtbags, how the hell can you tell someone 'Just do what they say and you'll be fine' when you're dealing with walking crapbags like this?
34% said they killed because the victim challenged the killer’s authority

66% said they killed because the victim insulted them in some way

More on the subject from Anarchangel
That can be good advice to a point (I don't totally agree with it, but OK); but that's where most police officers stop.They never qualify their point. Fortunately, these ones did, by following up with "unless things start to get violent, in which case the only thing you can do is try and stop the threat".

What most cops won't tell you, because they don't want you "trying to be a hero"; is that once there has been an escalation of violence in the commission of a crime, the chances of somebody not being killed or seriously injured are very poor.

If you're dealing with what cops call an ODC (ordinary decent criminal), then most likely nobody is going to get hurt; but once things tip over that edge (and it can happen at any time, with no warning), you are effectively a dead man already, unless you act to prevent that from happening

Yes, more video of a Obamacare architect opening his mouth

and letting the truth out.
“John Kerry said, ‘No, no. We’re not going to tax your health insurance. We’re going to tax those evil insurance companies. We’re going to impose a tax that if they sell insurance that’s too expensive, we’re going to tax them,’” Gruber said. “And, conveniently, the tax rate will happen to be the marginal tax rate under the income tax code.”

“So, basically, it’s the same thing: We just tax the insurance companies, they pass on higher prices that offsets the tax break we get, it ends up being the same thing,” he added. “It’s a very clever, you know, basically exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter.
And when a lot of people warned this was exactly what the bastards were doing, we were called every name said bastards could think of, starting with 'liar'.

Gas checks on non-gas-check bullets

While back I wrote about modifying plain-base cast bullets to take a gas check.  Few days ago Dad showed me another way he figured out, and that's what this is on.

For a little background:
A plain-base cast or swaged* bullet has a flat base with square corners.
The basic cast bullet, used by the Deity-only-knows-how-many millions over time(this particular one is a 158-grain semi-wadcutter hollowpoint from Hornady).  They have very definite limits as to how fast you can drive them because of that plain base: start pushing them too fast and the propellant gasses wind up eroding the base and corners a bit, which both screws with accuracy and causes lead fouling to build up in the rifling.

Solution: modify the mold a bit so the base has a heel or smaller-diameter section at the base and put a gas check on it.  Small copper cup fits over that heel, and when you run the bullet through the sizing die is crimps it on.  That check protects the base from the propellant gas, and(I think) will tend to scrape out any fouling as the bullet travels forward.  You can push  a gas-checked bullet a lot faster.

Now, before jacketed hollowpoints became truly reliable, one of the only bullets that could be counted on to upset(expand, mushroom, etc.) reliably was the semi-wadcutter hollowpoint, cast or swaged from a fairly soft alloy.  This was the FBI load for quite a while, and a number of other agencies wound up using it as well, in .38 Special +P or .357 Magnum loads.  Among others, Hornady sells these(see above). 

Hornady swages these with a knurled(textured) body and coated with a dry lube, others use standard lube grooves full of lube.  I'd fired some of the Hornady, and they shot well but I still got a bit of fouling, and that was below +P load levels.  So I screwed around and used a collet-type bullet puller to squeeze a heel on the base to take a gas check.  It works, but a bit fiddly to do.

Enter Dad.  I'd mentioned this to him, he picked up a box and thought on it a bit, wondering how to form a shank to take the check.  And did this:

That's a piece of .126" aluminum scrap he had laying around.  After a bit of measuring he drilled two 11/32"   holes in it, and lightly touched them with fine paper to clean off the burrs.  Take a bullet, set it squarely on a hole.

Push straight down with medium pressure and give a turn.  Examine. 

This one took a couple of turns to form the heel, though sometimes might take another turn. 

Press the gas check on
and run it through the sizer to crimp it on.

That's a hell of a lot simpler than the process I came up with.  Dad used his Lyman sizing press to seat the check, pushing the bullet just far enough down to crimp it on; I've got a Lee bullet sizing die in .358" and I think it'd work better as you don't have to worry about mashing the nose.

*Swaged: formed by forcing lead into a die to form the bullet

Yes, a knife is a REAL threat

no matter what someone saw in a movie.  And tasers don't always work.  And shooting at extremities is stupid.
Includes that damn scary video from down south(the real nasty starts around 4:30)

and some others.

Remember Deputy Dickhe- ah, Glans?

Assaulted a guy for daring to stand on his 4th Amendment rights?

Resigned rather than be fired, and is facing two charges.  For some reason neither of them is assault, and there's nothing about the violation of civil rights, though.

And what about the other deputy?  The one who stood there and watched and did or said nothing, and didn't report this?  He gets off free, it appears.

Now the whining and justification starts:
Asked if he would have handled the matter the same way again, Glans said he would, but not if he knew it was being filmed. He acknowledged that he did not know the incident was being videotaped.

“I was concerned. It was a public safety issue,” the sergeant said. “If I had to do it all over again … I’d probably do the same thing. If I knew the camera was there, no, because it does look bad.”
Think about that.  "Yes, I'd commit assault and make threats and violate his rights again, long as I knew it wasn't on camera."  And he thinks this is a "I'm a caring law officer" defense?  And this asshole was a SUPERVISOR?

Makes you wonder who all else he's done this to over time, and gotten away with it.

Cameras.  On every officer.  And recordings MUST be made available, and it's a firing offense for your camera to be turned off or become 'inoperable' during an incident.

Working on a piece about bullets, but other than that

just not feeling it today.  Few bits to get the blood moving:
That clown had a softball 'interview' the other day and basically said "I'm sorry people found out about this."  Bet he's sorrier now.

One of his compatriots insisting "The law means what we SAY it means, not what the words on paper say!"  Bastards really want to rule by Red Queen rules.

Tam points to 'why get training?'  Which includes this wonderfully confidence-inspiring bit:
We’re the best shooters in our department, by far. That’s why we’re the firearms instructors. Then we come here and find out that we suck.
Lots of people can't afford much in the way of travel and schools.  Happily there's LOTS of training stuff (for one) available from lots of serious trainers. 

After the shooting

And that's it for now.  Assuming the energy levels rise and fingers loosen, I may actually accomplish something.

Tab clearing: "Enemies list? Shut up. That was a staffer.

Nobody knew anything about it."

Yeah, just the sort you'd want teaching your kid.
If you were Nation of Islam, anyway.

Rep. elect Mia Love.  Gets by because of white privilege...
No, these idiots aren't kidding.

Ontario Provincial Police want people to get a internet license, get rid of that troublesome anonymity thing.  I think they should have their badges and toys taken away from them.

'Higher' Education in Illinois.  We'll probably find out he's a good friend of the Presidents' friend Bill Ayers.

And right across that border we're not supposed to worry about, politicians and cops and cartels, murdering shitbags all.

And more of what 'higher' education has become: oversensitive whiny grievance-mongers who really don't like free speech.  Or intelligent speech for that matter.

Insty has three links on that theft under color of law

known as asset forfeiture.  The third includes this:
Beth Grossman, who heads the Public Nuisance Task Force in Philadelphia, recently appeared on 1210 WPHD with Dick Morris in an attempt to defend that city’s massive civil forfeiture program:

Dick Morris: But if the jury finds that there was [no drug dealing], and finds that the person is innocent, and you forfeited the house, you don’t give it back. You keep the money.

Beth Grossman: Well, first of all, people are not found innocent, they are found not guilty, because the common law cannot achieve—

Dick Morris: That is hysterical. You’re saying that it’s okay to seize the house because they’re found not guilty? Rather than innocent? Are you really saying that?
Your police at work.  Go read all three, and be prepared for blood-pressure spikes.

Why you're not seen as Officer Friendly anymore, Reason #418:

You're an abusive, violent thug who belongs behind bars.
I'm not excerpting, just go read what a jewel Sgt. Shawn Glans is.  If by 'jewel' you mean abusive, oathbreaking, violent piece of shit hiding behind a badge.

And do note this:
Glans, according to a Daily Gazette article, was found responsible for a March 1996 on-duty vehicle accident that left a man paralyzed and blind. Saratoga County and the town of Wilton settled a lawsuit with the man for an undisclosed amount after a $60 million suit was filed.
My, isn't he a wonderful guy?  

If they don't fire, and charge, this bastard, they deserve to get zero support from the public.  If they won't clean house, screw 'em every one..

And the Innocence Project takes its reputation,

uses it for toilet paper and flushes it.  This is disgusting on a level hard to describe.
Last week, Simon walked out of prison a free man after Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez announced that her office, after a yearlong investigation, was vacating the charges against him and ending his 37-year sentence.

The investigation by the Medill Innocence Project, she said, "involved a series of alarming tactics that were not only coercive and absolutely unacceptable by law enforcement standards, they were potentially in violation of Mr. Simon's constitutionally protected rights."

The truth took 15 years to come out. That's 15 years that Simon, now 64, spent behind bars.
Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Still busy, not quite as much,

so a bit of time.  For instance Sarah Hoyt telling the "America SUCKS!" people to kiss her ass.
For years, my husband has despaired of watching movies with me, because I have that truth-checking program in my head.  Hit three or more of those pat “everybody knows” above, and I leave the room, no matter how engaging the romance wrapped around it.  You see I grew up, literally, in a socialist country, surrounded by propaganda at all times.  It was so heavy handed you couldn’t help but see through it.  And I did.  Which means like someone who’s been immunized, I’m sensitive to the virus and anti-bodies deploy.

In Wisconsin, my first thought is "Really?  You JUST realized that?"  My second is "Loose the lawyers, and sue their asses off!"
In a court filing that one constitutional law expert calls a “stunning reversal,” the Government Accountability Board appears to concede that the “legal theory” driving the secret John Doe investigation into Wisconsin conservatives is legally “indefensible.”
Go after the prosecutors, the judges who signed off on it.  And the cops who approved SWAT raids in this shit.  Every one of them.

I am now off to hopefully get the last of this hurry-up stuff done.  At least for now.  I leave you with this:

Yes, I'm still alive

Yes, still busy.

Two quick notes:
Elle magazine has announced this lady is 'The newest plus-size modeling star!'.
A: In what freaking universe is she 'plus-size'?
B: Just how are they going to blame this on men?

The Brady Bunch assholes try using part of the story in order to demand 'universal background checks'.
Well as we all know, anti-gun fanatics never tell the whole story.  The POS that did the shooting was a loser by the name of Benjamin Smith.  He DID buy some guns from an 'unlicensed seller' a few days after being denied from an FFL.

Here's the catch (es).

No attempt was made to apprehend Smith after he had attempted to illegally purchase firearms at an FFL (he had a restraining order)

The 'unlicensed seller' , Donald R. Fiessinger, was already under investigation by the ATF who arrested him AFTER he had already sold dozens of firearms, including two to Smith.

The Illinois State Police issued Smith a FOID card (passing a background check) two weeks prior to the shooting because the paperwork for the OOP had a different middle initial.  They revoked it two days AFTER he bought the guns but didn't arrest him for committing a felony by filling out false information on his application
Remember Genius Biden after Sandy Hook saying 'Of COURSE they're not prosecuting people who lie on the paperwork, or illegally try to buy guns!  So we need MORE laws!'? 

On trolls and leftist 'tolerance' for other views.

And now, good night.
