    The MSM silence on Christopher Dorner being a left-wing nut-job is amazing, but hardly surprising. The GOP appears to be in high gear on Hispandering. This is just another example of out leaders telling Hispanics that there’s really no need to blend in or become “Americanized” along with dial 1 for Spanish, packaging being is Spanish and English, federal government forms printed in every language imaginable.

    OK…in a nutshell, here is what is on my mind:

    For the first time in my entire life I have ZERO faith in this country, its “government”, or future. I have lost every shred of patriotism…every shred. When I listened to the singing of our National Anthem before the Super Bowl I literally thought to myself: “SUCKERS!”

    Everything good about America has been or is being sullied…and everything we once found abhorent is being elevated and praised.

    My entire focus is now on the survival of my family…period. When I think of all the time, effort and money I wasted supporting candidates and causes I am ashamed of having been such a dupe!

    I had a LOT of help in getting this cynical and disheartened…government help. The Department of Homeland Security spent $12 million on a study entitled ‘Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States’, which characterized Americans who are “reverent of individual liberty” as potential “extreme right-wing” terrorists.

    Our country was FOUNDED by men & women who were “reverent of individual liberty” …and now to try and cling to those beliefs is to be labeled a “potential terrorist”????


    I’m done praying for this country…I now pray only for family and friends, including all of ya’ll.

    Gee…do I sound bitter?

    JR – only 53% (a number that is rapidly declining and will be in a state of freefall once Comprehensive Immigration Reform (aka amnesty) is enacted. The others are anything but suckers as they are living off us.

    The problem the moochers have is that soon there won’t be enough suckers to support the food stamp. section 8 housing, Obamaphone, 65 inch flat screen lifestyle they have become accustomed to.

    People that died in 1960 – hell people who died in 1980 – wouldn’t recognize our country and the establishment Republicans go merrily along.

    Some good friends are ex-Navy types. Their observations are ‘Navy Week’ which pops up more than just annually is just cover for shutting down the boilers. Not uncommon for the US 5th during the 60’s and 70’s to pull in to Malta, Naples or Greece and shut everything down for repair and R&R. Course while that is all going on, they are not burning bunker fuel so the books will balance.

    Continuing some thoughts from the last thread.

    * How does the govt function in a civil war when 30% of the funding stops? I don’t know about you, but I certainly would not send in my annual tithe to the DC stupids. I also suspect they would be hard pressed to find me, collect.

    * Heavy machinery will only be a short term advantage. Beyond 6 months it becomes a drag to maintain and fuel. At that point boots on the ground count for more.

    * As the current Doehner situation shows, the police are not omnipotent. LAPD have their own internal dossiers on this guy, his style, habits, capabilities and they so far can’t catch him. The DC sniper showed the same thing a while back. LE types going up against an engaged populace of unknown size, capability, support and tactics does not bode well for their side.

    #14 Call me tinhatty, but I think there is waaaaaaaay more to this manhunt than anyone knows. The LAPD are shooting citizens at random and claiming it was because they thought it was the suspect. Essentially, if you drive a blue car or truck, stay off the roads until this is over. Blue= you might get shot. Secondly, they are violating 4th amendment rights by searching door to door in Big Bear for this guy. They are searching homes- occupied and not- with no warrant, and with no option for saying no. I think this entire thing is staged because they are trying to show that they can do whatever the eff they want if they deem it ‘necessary’. This is the brass showing off their manhood and daring you to call it small. Folks don’t question it because there is a bad guy on the loose. Is there really? Third, he is a leftist to the very core, if his manifesto is real, which leaves them to do their ‘some complaints hold more weight than others’ when it comes to media silence.

    Shooting people delivering the LA Times is not necessarily shooting people at random. Maybe the LA cops don’t like people who deliver propaganda.

    11/13 – Well seems to me the LAPD is working overtime to prove Dorners point.
    #18 – Been what I’m thinking since the 2nd incident of shoot first ID possible perp later – though more to the degree they it seems they in no way want to take him alive, dead men tell no further tales of corruption.

    “The U.S. Consumer Protection Bureau says it is worried that Americans, particularly those from the retiring baby boom generation, are too stupid and gullible to manage their own retirement savings and is exploring whether it has the “authority” to “manage” people’s retirement funds.

    There is $19.4 trillion in the pension funds, 401(k)s and individual retirement accounts (IRAs) of Americans. The psychopaths in government have had their eyes on those funds for years. Confiscating that money and exchanging it for more government phony money would stave off collapse for a while longer. While the money is supposedly yours, government has so regulated it that you can’t really have it until you reach a magical age it established.”

    The LAT people that were shot were not the only ones, there was another truck that was shot up even though the driver wasn’t hurt.

    #26 The funny thing about the corruption tales is that is he isn’t the only one who knows them. What happens if someone or several someones come along to tell tales, without killing anyone and thus sparking more manhunts? It’s not like this one guy is the sole keeper of secrets. Anyhow, now they are apparently going to use drones to take him out? How many innocents will die from this? Also, how perfect is the timing with folks questioning Obama’s use of that technology? Everything in this administration seems to have extremely convenient timing.

    Looks like the author has not done the math. Lets say the government took every retirement account tomorrow with NO intention of even a payout later. That’s best scenario for the Feds. —

    * We’re $16T in debt now. That does not even included all the unfunded liabilities.
    * We’re taking on around $1.2T/year of debt best guess. Numbers are all over the map.

    So in 5 years the government will have burnt thru all the confiscated funds and still be in the hole. And Pelosi as late as this Friday said the government does not have a spending problem!

    JM, 31,

    What’s to worry?? Holder has it on good authority that even if they off Dorner with a side order of collateral damage (aka deaths) that everything is `legal`. Justice just slips Obammy a note with `sign here` and all is right with the world.

    Several on other sites are not quite but almost prepared to equate this guy with Robin Hood.

    By the way, if the manhunt goes on too much longer, LAPD’s biggest fear will be copycat shooters.

    #34 Yes, that is a fear…and here is another one- race riots. The cop is black. The cop who does the deed happens to be white or mexican? Or- they do like they did with the color blue, and just start shooting black men that are close enough to his description? Yikes. LA is already a powder keg, which is why it gives me the giggles to think we are such a target for terrorists. EBT goes down or one too many blacks kills one too many mexicans or vice versa? War.

    My guess is this cop killer is propped up against some tree stump frozen into a block of ice. Four days in a snow covered landscape is not easy to survive when you cannot build a fire and you left most of your camping gear in your burned out truck. This dumbass ain’t no Bear Grylls or Eric. Rudolph.

  39. 2013 February 10 9:25 pm

    31 – Oh of course I’m sure he’s not the only one but I’m sure they don’t want this guy to have a long drawn out trial that might shine some light, or provide and opportunity for for others to shine some light.

    33 -Please don’t confuse my comments with cheer-leading this guy at all, he’s not Robin Hood, I do find the fallout, reaction, and follow on events by various parties related to this illuminating to say the least. Doubt most outside the area give a crap though unless it preempts American Idol.

    Very interesting article indeed. My only observation is that if it is an EMP attack it will be external. Doing so internally destroys both military and civilian services/resources. Not exactly beneficial to government forces who wish to control a population.

    Being thrown back to 1820 would provide certain challenges to say the least.

    ‘One Second After’ was one of the most chilling…and PLAUSIBLE…doomsday books I have read in a long time.

    EMP would, as the book describes, wipe out over 90% of our population within 2 years. EVERY major city would have losses of near 100%. Those in the countryside who had prepared would survive better initially, but would have to defend themselves ruthlessly to continue.

    And yes, it will most likely be external. But then again, Obama and his minions would protect themselves no matter what…and a population reduced by 90% and essentially helpless would be easier to dominate!

    Thinking ever more seriously about building a nice double Faraday cage to store a range of electronic devices and components when not in use. A solid double cage with no need for power or signal ingress, or ventilation, should easily provide 160dB attenuation. EMP this, bitch! Also probably be good to find an old car with minimal electronics, that could be restored with a few parts from the cage.

    Burial will get you a ground, but that depends a lot on the soil type and conditions. Plus, there’s the access. I want something like a large freezer that I can get to readily. It can be easy in concept, like a fully continuous layer of sheet metal both sides of 3/4 plywood, all bolted together, and the seams sealed with metal strips screwed in. Make sure there is no electrical contact between the inner and outer layers, then make a contact at one point and ground it there. The door is the tricky part, best done with strips of what we call finger stock. It’s like a tape of little spring loaded electrical contacts. I’m sure there are web resources for details; I was an engineer in the radio industry, that’s where I learned it all.
