If you haven’t heard this story, folks, this is a humdinger. The story below is from the AP. Read it. This isn’t the only time this drug has caused someone to do crazy violenct things in the Miami area recently. Make sure you read the parts below the story for more details and how to respond to this type of situation. This story appears on my Prepper Outdoors site, as well, but I felt it was important enough to get it to both my audiences.

TEHRAN – In an apparent slip-up, an Iranian general has admitted that special forces have been deployed from Tehran to Syria to assist the Assad regime’s crackdown against the anti-government uprising.
With Memorial Day behind us and the Independence Day ahead of us, we have just over a month until our next day off from work. We also have just a little over a month until we should remember why we celebrate that day. It’s not just the 4th of July. It’s Independence Day. It recognizes the day out Declaration of Independence was signed.
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women’s groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, “Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping” by Nella L. Sweet carried the dedication “To The Ladies of the South who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead” (Source: Duke University’s Historic American Sheet Music, 1850-1920). While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it’s difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. It is more likely that it had many separate beginnings; each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860’s tapped into the general human need to honor our dead, each contributed honorably to the growing movement that culminated in Gen Logan giving his official proclamation in 1868. It is not important who was the very first, what is important is that Memorial Day was established. Memorial Day is not about division. It is about reconciliation; it is about coming together to honor those who gave their all.

American Muslims who are disheartened by increasingly fervent attacks on sharia law are planning to assemble en masse this weekend to protest against what they fear are attempts to discriminate against their way of life. This weekend, 15,000 believers are expected to descent upon Hartford, Connecticut, for the 37th annual Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) convention.
S.E. Cupp got support from the hosts of “The View” Thursday when she appeared to discuss the fallout from the fake explicit photo of herself that recently appeared in Hustler magazine.
“I was horrified. It was disgusting and even though it wasn’t — I didn’t actually do that, by the end of the day I felt ashamed as if I had,” Cupp remarked. “Knowing that this photo will be out there forever, my children will see it when I have them one day, it’s sad,” she continued.
Co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck, the lone conservative on the show, referred to the National Organization for Women as “the National Organization for Some Women” for remaining silent on the issue.
“The outrage that we’ve seen for some other examples of this has not yet been matched,” Cupp said. “That’s OK, I’m not a victim here.”
The heavyweight political backing for the MEK has surprised some US officials because of the organisation’s past as a Marxist-Islamist group responsible for the killing of Americans. At one time the MEK supported the Islamic revolution in Iran.
Do you remember the story where I spoke of Homeland Security buying 450 million rounds of .40 S&W ammo? Read here to refresh your memory and then read this from The Washington Times. See below.
Homeland Security orders huge amount of ammo
The Department of Homeland Security and its Immigration and Customs Enforcement office is getting an “indefinite delivery” of an “indefinite quantity” of .40 caliber bullets from defense contractor ATK.U.S. agents will receive a maximum of 450 million rounds over five years, according to a press release on the deal.
The high performance HST bullets are designed for law enforcement and ATK says they offer “optimum penetration for terminal performance.”
Even more proof that those of us in the III%/Patriot/Prepper community that we aren’t simply a bunch of whackos. Major media is reporting on it, folks.
People, this is scary to me. I understand the use of drones in the military against enemy personnel. I understand the point of using them to spy on other countries and their people; especially their people with any kind of real power. I can even understand the mindset that makes law enforcement think it’s ok to use drones domestically. I don’t agree with them, but I understand their reasoning. I believe using drones, whether armed or unarmed, is a violation of the 4th Amendment. The objection to the use of drones domestically is even shared by ACLU! There are actually several cases the ACLU is looking at that I agree with them on, but not too many.
