Perp Meets Pistol Packin’ Preacher

Baytown, Texas has been plagued with a thief taking parcels off porches – until the perp met a pistol packing preacher with a sense of humor.

Briefly excerpting the KTRK report linked above:

On September 12, Laurie Ferguson, 52, was caught stealing some packages from Benny Holmes’ front porch, according to the Baytown Police Department.

Pastor Benny Holmes is seen on video bolting through his front door with a gun in hand. He ordered Ferguson to get on the ground. She did.

“She said I’m looking for my dog,” said Holmes. “He said you found your dog. Bow wow.”

Brother Holmes sounds like my kind of preacher.

Kudos, Sir.

PA Troopers Find Trooper Shooters AK

FOX news reports they have found a AK-47 carried by the man the believe murdered one State Trooper and seriously wounded a second. Fox also reports Pennsylvania law enforcement believe the purported perp has gone underground in a small area he knows well.e

I would not bet a cup of coffee on that last. Hunting season is almost upon that area, and if the purported perp planned his attack for months or years, he is likely to be long gone. And somewhat less likely to be planning to go out in a noisy blaze of glory. The probability of the perpetrator pulling an Eric Rudolph, and giving up meekly are vanishingly small at this stage of the game.

Noted: Green Marchers Trash Gotham; TEA Pariters Cleaed Up After Themselves

It is off topic: but most Alley readers probably remember when the TEA Party put a million and a half demonstrators on the Washington Mall – and tens of thousands were forced to park miles from the venue. And that the TEA Partiers carried their trash away, leaving little for park workers to do other than water the grass.

The New York Post reports a crowd of “300,000” environmental marchers did a fine job of trashing Gotham.

An experienced crowd watcher reports that, given the area covered and crowd density, a turnout of 100,000 would be generous. Whatever the relative turnouts may have been, the TEA Party adherents are clearly the more environmentally conscious of the two groups.

Noted: Gropers Losing Adminstrators

The Washington Post reports the gropers at the Department of Homeland Security are losing administrators.

Could it be that the regime’s policy of para-militarizing Federal bureaucracies paints a “shoot-me first” sign on administrators if there is a disturbance?

Noted: Like Obama, Hillary Is An Alinsky Disciple

The Washington Free Beacon reports on correspondence between Hillary Rodham and Communist organizer Saul Alinsky.

Briefly quoting the Free Beacon report linked above:

Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

The letters obtained by the Free Beacon are part of the archives for the Industrial Areas Foundation, a training center for community organizers founded by Alinsky, which are housed at the University of Texas at Austin.

Given the near identity of Clinton’s political views with those of Obama, their branch of the Democratic Socialists, and the stated positions of the complicit media generally, I suspect that Alinsky had far more influence than any of these “worthies” would care to admit.

OOPS – a tip of the Stetson to the Drudge Report for the link.

Climate: Arctic Freeze Begins

The IJIS website says Arctic sea ice extant is 5,021,767 km2.

That is a rise of some 30,000 square kilometers overnight. I suspect that some standing water on floating ice, which can appear to be sea water, has frozen.

It is notable that this years official minimum ice extant is essentially double the 2012 minimum. And given the lower solar irradiance, if the massive quantities of Asian soot going over the pole to land in North America, the North Atlantic, and Europe do not slow things up too drastically, I expect a relatively fast increase in the percentage of the arctic covered by ice.

And correspondingly early and hard winters in the rest of the world.

Slow News Morning – But Goodjoint Is In Jail

Prowling the internet for an hour turns up the fact that suspected murderer L.B. Goodjoint is in the coop in Des Moines.

And Bobby Kennedy, Jr., is a typical 21st Century Democrat. If he were Cheyenne they would call him ‘Blatherer.’

Congress took off for a couple of months last week. The pundits used to say everyone’s life and property were safe because Congress was not in session. But we have Obama in the Withe House so that is no longer true.

But while the Democratic Partei’s candidates are generally keeping shutmouth about gun bans, there are several well funded propaganda groups trying to push them back in office.

So mark “Vote” on your list of things to do, along with the first day you can do that. And, as Larry the Cable Guy says, “Giter’r done.”

What’s Up With Casa Extrano

“Mo” asks what’s up with Casa Extrano. At the moment, I am keeping alive with humor posts, the sort of yarns I can post in my sleep. As the lac of style and uneven characterization shows.

I am gaining strength every day, and I will get La Casa back on track in the near future. Probably after the mid-terms, when I have more time to concentrate on the foibles, peccadilloes, and general lack of goose sense of the finest lot of political masters money can buy.

Hmm: White House Invader “Concerned the atmosphere is collapsing..”

CBS’ Dallas outlet reports the dude who jumped the White House fend and made a quick scurry inside was an Iraq war vet concerned the atmosphere is collapsing and needed to tell Obama.

Obviously, Omar Gonzales of Coppers Cove is a Democrat; taking his place beside Hank Johnson, who things a few more aircraft will make Guam turn over, and the majority of Congressional Democrats who think a higher minimum wage will allow workers to buy more stuff.

In other words, one of the bunch the rest of the class has to wait on.

Giffords Shows Her Colors – With A Vile Commercial

The United Sates has an enormous number of guns. Existing production records and known survival rates suggest we have upward of 720 million guns that are either serviceable or easily restored to service currently in circulation, with another million a month added to that total.

AT the same time, criminologists estimate there are sixteen million guns, one for every twenty Americans, in the hands of the criminal underworld. Literally anyone who knows anyone who used drugs or has a criminal record can obtain a gun.

Anti-Gun activist and former Congresswoman Gabreille Giffords has shown her colors with a sleazy campaign ad for anti-gun Congressman Ron Barber and against a responsible Congressional candidate, Martha McSally.

Here is Giffords ad:

Of course, Colonel McSally had nothing at all to do with the death of “Vicki’s” daughter. And, had “Vicki’s” husband owned and carried an effective defensive weapon, there is a high probability that both victims would be alive today.

The ad has no relevance to either Col. McSally or to the real world. The only thing it has relevance to is the world the Democrats have created, where gun laws sent millions of guns to the underorld; the world where even the most violent among the insane, like the Jared Loughners, have no cell in any institution for the criminally insane.

The world the gun control advocates, unable to recognize fact when it does not support dogma, want to force on everyone; and not just the unfortunate residents of Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, New York City, Hartford, and Boston.

We are sure to see many of these foul and vicious attacks on responsible people who are trying to act in accordance with the facts. Instead of the degenerate dream world of the Sinister Left.
