14M KM2 Arctic Ice Extent, St. Al Was Wrong!

Arctic ROOS eports there is still slightly more than 14,000,000 KM2 of Arctic sea ice, and the ice coverage is holding its own at a time when the ice has started to shrink.

Mean Arctic temperature is 250K, or just shy of -10F, plenty cold enough to increase the depth and coverage of sea ice. Massive amounts of bitterly cold Arctic air spilling south has drawn equal volumes of temperate zone air, slightly warming the Arctic. And providing frost, freezes, and snow, this 28th of March of 2015.

Ice Age Now reports far below normal temps over much of the United States, and three feet of hail on the ground on the Colombia -Ecuador border at 2 degrees North Latitude. While hail is not unknown at low latitudes, hail in quantity is as rare as snow in Namibia. Which occurred again this year.

So Saint Al Gore’s prediction that there would be no Arctic sea ice by 2010 was dead wrong. And instead of getting warmer, it is pretty obvious to anyone who will stick their head out a window that it is getting cold. Particularly over North America, but middle Europe is beginning to catch cold as well.

So while we will have to wait to see how this comes out, remember that the raw data does not lie, but liars sure can edit the data. And make up excuses for doing so.

H.R. 131: The “Lawful Transportation Of Firearms” Bill

Virginia Representative H. Morgan Griffith (R-VA9) has introduced H.R. 131, a bill to address the various “gun traps,” such as New Jersey, where stopping for any reason while transporting a firearm through the State can result in up to twelve … Continue reading

Two Bereaved Fathers Promote Action Plan

Two men whose sons were shot down by police officers who were not in any danger are promoting a plan to curb “police shootings in error,” shootings that have to a large extent destroyed trust and confidence in the police.

One of the men William Scott, the father of Erik Scot, shot down by Las Vegas cops after Costco management panicked at the sight of a Concealed Weapons Permit holder spending money in “their” store.”

Briefly quitting the Newsmax report linked above the video:

Two men who say their sons died as a result of police brutality are promoting a plan to help prevent similar deaths.

“There’s four legs that this has to be built upon,” Retired Lt. Col. Mike Bell, whose son, Michael E. Bell, was shot and killed by a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin, told Ed Berliner on “MidPoint” on Newsmax TV on Friday.

“It has to be built on external investigation, independent review to determine cause, it has to look at accountability, and then the final step is keep a database so that we really know the true cause of everything,” he explained.

I agree. Accountability is the very first necessity in restoring trust in the police. In a situation where lack of trust puts every officers life in danger every time they make contact with the public.

Life In A Gun Free Society Is…

California is the land of “may issue” concealed weapons permits. It the “Red Strip” along the coast from San Diego to Humboldt Counties, that generally means “no issue” for carry permits.

And in a society in which few can defend themselves and others, the supreme fear is the fear of violent death or injury. As Thomas Hobbes observed in “Leviathan:”

In such condition there is no place for industry, because the fruit thereof is uncertain, and consequently, not culture of the earth, nor navigation, nor the use of commodities that may be imported by sea, no commodious building, no instruments of moving and removing such things as require much force, no knowledge of the face of the earth, no account of time, no arts, no letters, no society, and which is worst of all, continual fear and danger of violent death, and the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.[5]

Just how nasty, brutish, and short can life in the Red Strip be? This short and brutish:

Witnesses, with no effective defensive weapon, felt “helpless and outnumbered.” Of course. Because the entire history of the the gun is lower and lower crime rates, until the “rulers” decide privately owned weapons are a threat to their misrule.

European Murder Trials, per 100,000 population,  1000-1600  European Murders 1601 to 2010

European Murder Trials, per 100,000 population, 1000-1600
European Murders 1601 to 2010

“May Issue” is an open invitation to violence. A disproportionate part of that violence is committed by those whose nominal job is to protect the public. Before guns, much of the violence came from “the King’s men at arms,” soldiers, whose position and weapons allowed them to do as they wished.

Today, that violence comes from…

Such is life in a gun control venue. Solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.

“What Should A Stolen .45 Cost?”

Someone came by searching for “how much should a stolen .45 cost.”

Well, it could cost the thief as much as 14 years, but most prosecutors treat stealing a gun like stealing a bag of peanuts, so it may cost as little as three years.

What possession of a stolen gun should cost someone caught with it depends on the State it is recovered in, but generally two to five years.

Regine: “Do Not Soften Gun Laws That Sent Crime Soaring”

In response to a bill introduced by Senator Marco Rubio and Rep. Jim Jordan, The Hill reports white house spokesperson Josh Earnest said “home rule is important.

Home Rule, and gun control, is what drove D.C.s murder rate to 80.6 per 100,000 population in 1993, before relaxed gun laws resulted in a small trickle of guns that helped damp down the murder rate. A rate that did not begin to fall until the Supreme Court struck down DC’s absolute ban on gun ownership.

So essentially, the regime is saying that murder is all right with them, but they do not want citizens to be able to protect themselves against the killers who still thrive in the District.

Illinois: Duckworth To Announce Against Kirk Monday

The Hill reports Illinois Representative Tammy Duckworth (ANTI-IL8) will announce a campaign for the U.S. Senate against Senator Mark Kirk Monday.

Duckworth has made it clear she believes the Second Amendment should be “restricted,” and her recorded votes are in line with the goals of the Democratic Socialists of America. The record shows her to be typical Democrat, a borrow,pring,tax,and blow advocate on economic issues, a big government “yes girl,” a Partei back bencher, and a Pelosi rubber stamp.

While Mark Kirk is not much of a prize; D rated on gun issues by the NRA; HHQ rated on economic, social and gun and civil rights issues, Kirk is a much better choice than Duckworth.

How Many U.S. Gang Members?

Someone came by searching for “how many us gang members.”

That is a really good question, and one I lack credible numbers for.

I have often criticized countries, such as Mali, whose capital of Bamako often has more murders in a night than the country’s bureaucrats report in a year. The FBI does well on most crime related numbers, but when it comes to gang membership, the Feeb’s could show Mali’s bureaucrats a thing or two.

Since I got tired of riding drenched and sold my last bike, there has been a rumor going around that the FBI was adding the name of every registered motorcycle owner to their list of gang members. While the source is unreliable, the rumor is probably true.

That alone adds 9,500,000 “gang members” to the total number of gang members the Feeb’s think their are. So why?

Briefly quoting the Washington Post report linked above:

Lancaster asked Cornia to explain the reasoning behind the list which seems inappropriately broad, to Cornia answered the question with the following statement, “It’s nothing more than collecting and utilizing data. We may not like to admit it, but the truth of the matter is that those that own and operate motorcycles are 67% more likely to be involved in illegal or criminal activity than those that do not own or operate a motorcycle.”

The National Security Official went on to explain, “It’s the same as firearms, if local P.D or Highway Patrol were to pull someone over that is a registered firearm owner, that officer has the right to know this information going into the interaction, the same could be said about a local P.D or Highway Patrol Officer that pulled over a registered motorcycle owner, the situations are honestly interchangeable in the eyes of National and Homeland Security.

To which I can only shake my head in wonder. That is so obviously wrong that it needs no further comment.

Returning from Cloud Cuckoo Land; and leaving the highly suspect FBI numbers where I found them: Criminologists tell me than less than 800,000 mostly minority Americans are active in a criminal gang, and they are responsible for approximately 72 percent of all murders, and just under 80 percent of all other violent and property crimes.

Speculation: Was Suicide Pilot Suffering SSRI Poisoning

Ordinarily, I do not link to speculative reports. Such reports tend to be somewhat colored by the author and publications biases. However, this report concerns an active killer, a co-pilot who deliberately flew his craft into a mountain. And I have posted several times about the link between Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors and mass murderers.

This report, which links to another report at the Mirror, suggests Andreas Lubitz may have been treated for depression with one of a long list of SSRI drugs. Drugs that are linked to active killers.

Back in 1994 or ’95 23 of 24 mass murders were committed by individuals who had either stopped taking SSRI’s or were in the “tapering off” stage of withdrawal. While a suggestion is not proof, and there has been speculation in plenty, there is a strong possibility that this is the case in this tragedy.

While I certainly would not favor taking these drugs off the market, they are dangerous in themselves. In particular, patients who have stopped “taking their meds” are quite likely to become agitated and commit violent acts, while those who “taper off” too quickly are likely to commit violent acts.

But those undoubted facts are not the reason I posted the link to Natural News. The author, Mike Adams, has obliging provided a list of SSRI linked school shootings, along with a list of the drugs involved.

One mass murderer that is not on Mr. Adams list is Newtown shooter Adam Lanza, who was on Fanapt, a drug rapidly becoming noted for violent reactions in some patients.

So the Germanwings tragedy may well be another chapter in the history of anti-psychotic drug reactions inducing extreme and deadly violence. The same violence the anti’s blame on guns.

England Vs U.S. Crime Rates By Percentage

Someone stopped by searching for “england vs us crime rate by percentage.”

By definition, crime rates are percentages. Such a small percentage of people commit crimes, about one percent lifetime if one ignores illegal drug use and pilferage, that the X per 100,000 crime rates are necessary to be easily understood by the casual reader.

Otherwise, the US robber rate would be 0.001091 instead of 109.1 per 100,000. Which would be no end confusing and make comparing rates difficult.

At this point, let me add that, strictly speaking, comparing crime rates in different political jurisdictions is not strictly kosher unless history, economic activity, and other factors are taken into account. Since England has the advantage on the United States on almost all factors except “easy access to firearms,” the rate comparison is revealing:

1USUKCRIME

NB: England’s data gives 2,500 violent crimes per 100,000 without specifying an exact number. The US and UK homicide and murder rate are not comparable because the murder is a subset of homicide, and the UK counts murder convictions while the US counts dead bodies.

I will have a more complete comparison table when 2014 data for both the U.S. and the UK is released late this year.
