Corgi owners calling for the harshest penalty for the man charged with killing Molly, a Pembroke Welsh corgi.

I usually do not offer my opinion when it comes to punishment for a crime and in this case you don't want to hear it so whatever the "harshest penalty" is decided by the prosecutor's office, double it! ~ Storm'n Norm'n

Corgi owners rally around slain dog in Washington
By: Associated Press
BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Corgi owners around the nation are rallying around a slain Washington state dog, calling for the harshest penalty for the man charged with killing Molly, a Pembroke Welsh corgi.
A Facebook page called "Justice for Molly the Corgi" has garnered nearly 5,000 followers as of Saturday. The corgi owners are spearheading a letter-writing campaign to the Whatcom County prosecutors' office, imploring them to seek the harshest penalty against David William Latham, 55.
"When writing letters, push for the harshest penalties for this case but BE RESPECTFUL," one of the Facebook posts said.
One family from New Hampshire, whose dog just had a litter of pups, offered to drive across the country to deliver a new corgi puppy to the bereaved Bellingham family of Cary Chunyk and Loyce Andrews, The Bellingham Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1mrpxAJ).
Latham was charged Friday with first-degree animal cruelty and two misdemeanors: brandishing a weapon and second-degree criminal trespassing.
On Sept. 13, Latham was annoyed at a barking dog, so he armed himself with a rifle, walked across the street, aimed over a fence and shot Molly in front of her owners. Molly was not the dog barking, charging documents said.
After shooting Molly in the chest, Chunyk yelled at the shooter, but retreated when Latham raised both of his arms with one hand still holding a rifle.
In the chaos just after the shooting, authorities told the couple they should stay home until the gunman was arrested. So they cradled Molly, and wrapped her in towels, as she bled for a half-hour before dying.
"I wanted to get her into the car and get her on the road," Andrews said. "I've had animals all my life, and it was obvious she was seriously hurt."
The Whatcom County veterinarian who performed a necropsy said Molly likely was in a lot of pain as she died.
Police noted Latham "appeared to be fairly intoxicated and had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath," according to the charges. Officers recovered nine guns from his home.
On Friday, Superior Court Judge Deborra Garrett ordered Latham to surrender his beagle. The dog was transferred to the Humane Society. He's allowed to keep two cats he's owned for about eight years. He remains out on bail.
In a statement, Latham's attorney, Adrian Madrone, said his client "is extremely regretful and remorseful for his actions. He is a lifelong animal owner, and is very sorry for the pain he has caused. We simply ask that we be allowed to give his side of the story through the legal process before judgment is passed."
This week, Chunyk and Andrews have been "totally overwhelmed" by letters and messages of sympathy. They hope Molly's death will be a flashpoint for stronger animal-cruelty laws.
"People love their animals like children. So we're going to get this turned into something positive," Andrews said. "The outpouring of support has been phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal."

How would you like to hear this, "The next Vice-President of the United States is..." ?

Julian Castro
From Politico 
Many Democrats already see Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy as a foregone conclusion.  Now some believe they’ve already got her running mate, too: San Antonio Mayor JuliĆ”n Castro...
Castro told the White House he would accept the offer for a national role that supporters hope will groom him to the presumptive first Latino running mate on a national ticket.

Hey, If you don't want to read all this stuff, just scroll down to look at the pictures. 
Then there's this from The Fiscal Times
Keep an Eye on Julian Castro. He Could Be Hillary’s Running Mate
He’s the new federal housing secretary who jokes about suffering sticker shock in Washington’s pricey rental market. Practically overnight, he became one of the most prominent and promising Hispanic public officials in the country. His name already is being bandied about as a possible vice presidential running mate for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
And just yesterday, he celebrated his 40th birthday.
Julian Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio, Texas and President Obama’s new secretary of Housing and Urban Development, is one of the freshest faces in the nation’s capital -- a politician with seemingly limitless opportunities. But a big question that remains to be answered is whether he can successfully use HUD as a springboard to higher office.

After just seven weeks in office, Castro for now appears fixated on running a major bureaucracy with 8,500 employees and a $47 billion annual budget. He assumed the post at a time when “there is evidence of renewed weakness in the U.S. housing market” that has policy makers and private economists nervous, according to Reuters.
As the Obama administration’s newest housing cheer leader and advocate, Castro declared in a speech on Tuesday, “We come together at a time when our economy is growing, a time when American businesses have created 10 million new jobs over the last four and a half years . . . and a time when the housing market has gotten strong, with home sales, starts and values all rising in recent years.
“These are days of tremendous progress across the board, and now our charge is to accelerate this progress for every American,” he said during closing remarks at a two-day housing summit sponsored by the Bipartisan Policy Center. “That’s where HUD comes in.”
Castro also outlined a series of challenges suggesting this newcomer to Washington has his work cut out for him:
He warned, for instance, that after the U.S. finally dug itself out of an historic economic crisis and housing market collapse triggered by a reckless real estate industry and secondary markets that provided billions of dollars in mortgages to unqualified buyers, “the pendulum has swung too far in the other direction.”
Related: Two Housing Markets for the Two Americas
“Today, it’s too hard” to get a mortgage loan, he told the audience. “The truth is that the dream of homeownership is out of reach for too many Americans. This has to change.”
“A government-dominated market is unsustainable,” he added. “Instead, we need to attract private capital back to the market, establish certainty for lenders and protect taxpayers for the future.”
Castro – the former mayor of the seventh largest city in the U.S. -- gained national attention in 2012 when he became the first Latino chosen to deliver the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention. It was a time when immigration reform was a dominant issue in the presidential campaign and the Democratic Party was eager to preserve the allegiance of a substantial Hispanic voting bloc.
Castro and his identical twin brother Joaquin are Democratic success stories. The two brothers grew up in San Antonio, attended Stanford University and Harvard Law School, and then returned to their native city to launch their political careers. Joaquin Castro is now a member of Congress from Texas. 
The affable, well-spoken Julian Castro amassed an impressive record in urban renewal and economic recovery as mayor of San Antonio. Some analysts have said that by succeeding Shaun Donovan as HUD secretary, Castro will be in position to help forge housing, employment and economic policy that is critical to lower and middle income Americans who comprise a critical part of the Democratic base.
“I will judge my tenure by one standard: how well did we spark opportunity for Americans?” he said yesterday. “With the stakes so high we cannot afford to fail.”
With his broad appeal to Hispanic voters and his considerable experience dealing with urban problems in Texas, Castro is likely to emerge as a player as the 2016 presidential campaign approaches.
The Washington Post published a front-page story in August highlighting Castro’s vice presidential prospects and reporting that Hillary and Bill Clinton have been aggressively “cultivating” Castro; they also invited him to their home in Washington for a private dinner.
Henry Cisneros, a former HUD secretary himself in the Clinton administration, told The Post that in March he sat next to Hillary Clinton at a private luncheon in New Mexico where Cisneros said they discussed Castro and his political future.
“It’s a natural friendship waiting to bloom,” Cisneros, also a former San Antonio mayor and a longtime family friend and political mentor of Castro, told the Post.
Steve Elmendorf, a Washington lobbyist and former House Democratic adviser, said yesterday of Castro that “the guy is very appealing” and seems a natural to be included in a list of potential vice presidential candidates next year.
“I think for any presidential candidate, the choice will come down to, do you pick somebody like that who brings some great energy and diversity, or do you pick somebody who brings along a state? Castro’s problem is that he doesn’t bring Texas.”
Castro should beware: For decades, the job of HUD secretary has proved to be a political graveyard or improbable launching pad for higher office.
Even Cisneros who served as secretary of HUD from 1993 to 1997 fell victim to the curse. In March 1995, an Independent Counsel was appointed to investigate allegations that Cisneros lied to the FBI during background investigations prior to being appointed secretary.
Later, after leaving office, Cisnero pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor charge of having lied to the FBI about money he had paid to a mistress before joining the Clinton administration. He subsequently paid a $10,000 fine.

 
"...and has shaped and molded the people we are today."
A confession of such magnitude leaves no room for forgiveness...
its a verbal warning to all Americans to wake the hell up!
 
And if you don't read this "The Eerily Similar Backgrounds of Barack Obama and Julian Castro" you don't give a damn.

The Ebola Virus and You and you, and you, and you...


The Ebola Virus and You
By Norman E. Hooben
The Ebola virus has been in the news a lot in recent weeks and months.  But when did you first hear of Ebola?   Last year?  Or was it the year before that?  Well we can dispense with the ‘when’ questions as long as you know the ‘now’ answers.

My first recollection of the virus goes back to my years in the military where my job description involved having to know about the various aspects of zoonotic diseases (diseases transmitted from animal to man; i.e. rabies, plague, etc.).  A regular recipient of the CDC’s (Center for Disease Control) report on various disease outbreaks, I recall mention of the Ebola virus and that it was confined to certain areas of Africa meant little to me at that time…had to be in the late 70’s or early 80’s because the disease was first identified in 1976.  But then a lot of years went by and my interests in politics surpassed that of zoonoses…little did I know that the two will one day meet.

When we talk about politics we cannot escape the word, “control”, for control is the very essence of politics.  If it were not for politics and politicians would we not be free or less restricted by their impositions?  Of course we would!  And when we talk about control, it is always about control over the populace…that’s the common folk, you and me! (Yes, it’s true, some would like to give more freedom’s to animals: Obama’s Regulatory Czar, Cass Sunstein wants to give rights to animals and has argued that “Animals should be permitted to bring suit.”)
So who are these control freaks?  Oh I could name many but let’s confine ourselves to some familiar names like Henry Kissinger, Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski and Eric R. Pianka.  Eric R. Pianka?  Who is he?  Aha!  We’ll get back to him in a minute but first the others.

We all knew (if you didn’t, you do now!) that Henry Kissinger was the architect of Project 2000, a population control scheme approved by President Jimmy Carter.  Then there’s that scoundrel of all scoundrels, Zbigniew Brzezinski (paid adviser to Barack Obama) who clearly stated in a speech (yours truly first spread it around the Internet in 2009) “…it is easier to kill a million people than control a million people…”  “…and with the use of force” he added.  If we interpret the latter correctly you can see why Obama is militarizing your local police force and de-militarizing our armed forces but that’s another angle.

The angle we should be concerning ourselves with concerns the “Who is he?” guy mentioned above. 

Dr Eric R. Pianka is an award winning scientist who would like to exterminate 90% of the world’s population.  And how does he propose this mass murdering escapade?  Why of course, Ebola!  That’s the essence of this post!  Ebola and politics, little did I know that the two would meet.

Scientist calls for death to humanity
by John Ballantyne

News Weekly, April 15, 2006


A Texas scientist advocates killing nine-tenths of the world's population by an airborne Ebola virus, writes John Ballantyne.

An award-winning Texas scientist was given a standing ovation after he advocated the extermination of 90 per cent of the Earth's population by an airborne Ebola virus.

The University of Texas evolutionary ecologist, Dr Eric R. Pianka, was addressing the 109th meeting of the Texas Academy of Science at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, in early March, after the academy had named him 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist.

Present at Pianka's speech was Forrest M. Mim III, a popular science writer and editor of the bi-weekly journal, The Citizen Scientist. He reported:

"Something curious occurred a minute before Pianka began speaking. An official of the Academy approached a video camera operator at the front of the auditorium and engaged him in animated conversation. The camera operator did not look pleased as he pointed the lens of the big camera to the ceiling and slowly walked away.

"This curious incident came to mind a few minutes later when Professor Pianka began his speech by explaining that the general public is not yet ready to hear what he was about to tell us. Because of many years of experience as a writer and editor, Pianka's strange introduction and the TV camera incident raised a red flag in my mind ... I grabbed a notepad ..." ("Meeting Doctor Doom", The Citizen Scientist, March 31, 2006).

Pianka began his speech by condemning anthropocentrism, or the idea that the human race occupies a privileged position in nature. He exclaimed, "We're no better than bacteria!"

He argued that the sharp increase in the human population since the onset of industrialisation was destroying the planet. He warned that Earth would not survive unless its human population was reduced to a tenth of its present number.

He then offered drastic solutions, accompanying his remarks with a slide depicting the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

War and famine were insufficient for solving global overpopulation, he explained. Instead, disease was far more efficient and swift. At this point, Pianka displayed a slide showing rows of human skulls.

AIDS took too long to kill people off, he explained. His preferred method of exterminating over five billion human beings was via airborne Ebola (Ebola Reston), because it is both highly lethal and kills its victims in days rather than years.

However, as Mim observed: "Professor Pianka did not mention that Ebola victims die a slow and torturous death as the virus initiates a cascade of biological calamities inside the victim that eventually liquefy the internal organs.

"After praising the Ebola virus for its efficiency at killing, Pianka paused, leaned over the lectern, looked at us and carefully said, 'We've got airborne 90 percent mortality in humans. Killing humans. Think about that.' "

After he finished his address, the audience burst into applause.

Mim reported: "It wasn't merely a smattering of polite clapping that audiences diplomatically reserve for poor or boring speakers. It was a loud, vigorous and enthusiastic applause. ...

During a question-and-answer session, Pianka praised communist China's draconian one-child policy, and suggested that IQs are falling because only "uncaring people" (i.e., people with below-average intelligence) have large families.

Mim recalls how, once the questioning was over:
"I watched in amazement as a few hundred members of the Texas Academy of Science rose to their feet and gave a standing ovation to a speech that enthusiastically advocated the elimination of 90 percent of Earth's population by airborne Ebola. ..."
 "Some even cheered. Dozens then mobbed the professor at the lectern. ..."
A few hours later, the Texas Academy of Science presented Pianka with a plaque in recognition of his being named 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist.

Warning
Executive director of the Society for Amateur Scientists, Dr Shawn Carlson, later warned in The Citizen Scientist (April 2, 2006):
"I believe, with the terrible experience of the bloodiest century in human history behind us, that all men and women of conscious in the 21st century must be proactive in our opposition to genocidal or apocalyptic philosophies, before they have the chance to inspire some new champion with the will to take their conclusions to the next step.

"When the professional scientists have lost their sense of moral outrage at such ideologies, then it falls to America's great community of citizen scientists to be the conscious of science."

Also a must read....
...an email from Western Journalism
"...Ebola that can be spread through the air already exist in the animal world!" see below
Even if you believe that the CDC is capable of identifying and isolating all of the infected after the fact, how does the CDC propose to monitor all of the people who had direct and indirect contact with the infected individual? The short answer is, they can't.

Oh yes, we're being reassured that Ebola can't be spread through the air and that transmission is only possible through "direct contact with body fluids," but one of the pesky facts about Ebola that the government is downplaying is that the Ebola virus can live outside of a human host.

It's not necessary to come in contact with the infected individual... you only need to come in contact with an infected individual's body fluids.

Here's what the Public Health Agency of Canada says: "Filoviruses have been reported capable to survive for weeks in blood and can also survive on contaminated surfaces... Ebolavirus dried onto glass, polymeric silicone rubber, or painted aluminum alloy is able to survive in the dark for several hours under ambient conditions... When dried in tissue culture media onto glass and stored at 4C [approximately 40 degrees Farenheit], Zaire ebolavirus survived for over 50 days."

In other words, is it possible for a man carrying the Ebola virus to enter the country, show symptoms of the disease and become contagious days later, sneeze or cough on his hand, touch a door-knob (or some other surface) and infect others... perhaps hundreds... who touch that door-knob hours (or even days) later?

The short answer is, the government doesn't know, and even the medical community is unwilling to totally discount the possibility. The only response to that question has been equivocation... begrudging admissions that it's "possible."

The truth of the matter is that the medical community knows very little about Ebola and, in light of what is not known, why is the Obama Regime refusing to implement reasonable travel restrictions on those who are coming from countries in West Africa or have recently travelled to countries in West Africa?

The New York Times published an Opinion Editorial last month by Dr. Michael T. Osterholm, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota. Here's what Osterholm says: "What is not getting said publicly, despite briefings and discussions in the inner circles of the world's public health agencies, is that we are in totally uncharted waters and that Mother Nature is the only force in charge of the crisis at this time."

Osterholm outlines a scenario "that virologists are loath to discuss openly but are definitely considering in private," namely, "that an Ebola virus could mutate to become transmissible through the air. You can now get Ebola only through direct contact with bodily fluids. But viruses like Ebola are notoriously sloppy in replicating, meaning the virus entering one person may be genetically different from the virus entering the next. The current Ebola virus's hyper-evolution is unprecedented; there has been more human-to-human transmission in the past four months than most likely occurred in the last 500 to 1,000 years. Each new infection represents trillions of throws of the genetic dice."

Osterholm goes on to discuss a very recent case in which the Ebola virus has spread through the "respiratory route" from pigs to monkeys. In other words, mutations of Ebola that can be spread through the air already exist in the animal world!

And Osterholm adds: "Why are public officials afraid to discuss this? They don't want to be accused of screaming 'Fire!' in a crowded theater — as I'm sure some will accuse me of doing. But the risk is real, and until we consider it, the world will not be prepared to do what is necessary to end the epidemic."

Osterholm penned this editorial weeks ago, long before Ebola hit the news cycle in the United States. Keeping in mind that so much is unknown, is it unreasonable to demand that our elected officials shame the Obama Regime into implementing travel restrictions from infected countries and barring entry into the United States from those who have recently travelled to infected countries?

Do not trust the Obama Regime and don't let anyone tell you that you're nuts for demanding that our government act in a reasonable manner. It's time to call some elected officials on the carpet and if you're reading this alert, then you're among an elite group of patriotic Americans and activists who are willing and able to exert the necessary pressure to make them act in a reasonable manner. 1
