    Looks to me like the guy allegedly “tamping it down” is actually using some sort of small tool to chip away the dirt or rocks from around it. Then it looks like he’s trying to pry the thing up. Also, thought I heard the guy in the audio saying something about a medivac...not that there was anything left to medivac.

    “We apparently need to defeat republicanism before liberalism.”

    Apparently, ‘republicanism’ and it’s GOPe ‘leadership’ once again has no message or (spoken) mission statement as clearly indicated by their behavior and comments with the election just days behind them. They will clearly go after their #1 perceived enemy, and that enemy is anyone who embraces conservative principles. They will demonize people such as Cruz and Lee with the same vengeance the libtards went after Palin After all, just because a liberal calls himself a Republican (plenty of names come to mind), does not mean they will not stab us in the back at every opportunity. It just means they truthfully believe we are ignorant fools!

    “...Kids flipping through channels.... the Red Hot Chili Peppers, with nothing on but strategically placed socks on something that rhymes with socks, jumping around on stage..... why are you paying for garbage to be poured into your living room?”

    Zackly!!! You wouldn’t invite those fools with nothing but socks on their cocks jumping around into your living room in person, even for free, so why pay to have them appear on a screen infront of your children?

    Following the same thought process, I wouldn’t want Shlep, O’Reilly, Rove, or any other of the conservative bashing establishment, no matter if they call themselves a D or an R, in my living room either. Then to think they are so full of themselves that they want me to PAY them to come into my living room so they can explain to me that I’m too stupid to understand why being a conservative isn’t good for me or the country is laughable! Then using a blonde super model to try and explain the same thing is about the oldest trick in the book!

    Where in NM is their listening post? Tuesday night I drove south past the Very Large Array. It was a cloudy and rainy night, as is tonight. It’s the perfect spot for those giant listening dishes. Always amazes me just how desolate it is out there. Couldn’t see more than 100yrds in any direction with the cloud cover, and no lights to be seen anywhere most of the drive. Heck, when I needed to stop and pee, I just stopped right there in the middle of the highway, since I don’t think I saw but one other pick up for that whole stretch, and that was before 10 pm. Very quiet and no earthly lights to obscure the night sky.

    I know what you mean... I went to Walmart just before Halloween to pick up a soaker hose in the garden section only to find that all garden supplies had mysteriously disappeared and had been replaced with ‘Christmas’ STUFF. The area had ‘Chrismas’ music playing as well. After my initial shock and disbelief subsided, I realized I’d better high tail it out of there before an ear worm had a chance to infect me!!!

    Someone mentioned “Holly Jolly Christmas” up thread and now it’s stuck in my head. The song that seems to be playing in every single store I enter is “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies”. I really tire of the ear worms.

    In the South West US I know of people who have set up tents indoors to avoid being bitten by cone nosed beetles, also known as Mexican Kissing Bugs or Assasin Bugs. They are a vector for Chagas Disease. The dang things only come out at night when their victim is sleeping, stealthily inserting their long blood sucking proboscis in the facial region of humans. Try as one may, finding where the dang things are hiding is almost next to impossible, thus the need for an indoor bug proof tent, until WMD’s can be used to eliminate the little $hits.

    The MSM, low information voters, and city dwellers really don’t have a clue about how we live. Strapping iron onto one’s hip, or sliding a rifle into its scabbard on a saddle or 4 wheeler at the begining of the day is very scary to them. The concept of drilling a well, raising livestock, harvesting an elk, growing crops, and putting up food, is as foreign to them as addressing others as ma’am or sir.

    I’d been to the Reese’s store a few times and their security was completely appropriate given how close they were to the border. You know as well as I do how items of value ‘disappear’ when a group of illegals passes through.

    The Article:

    "In a stunning blow to the federal government’s case against the Reese family in the New Deal case, Judge Robert Brack imposed the following sentence:

    Time Served 3 years supervised release $100 fine per count of conviction Random drug testing DNA samples Refrain from alcohol use or possession of alcohol Random home/vehicle search No gun ownership

    He informed them they have the right to appeal his sentence. The government had originally sought the maximum sentence of five years each for Rick and Terri Reese, plus an additional few years for testifying in their own defense at trial, which was considered by the government to be “obstruction of justice”. The government conceded they could not seek more than the max of five years. The government also sought to have Ryin Reese received the maximum sentence of five years.

    Rick and Ryin served 17 months in prison and were released when Judge Brack ordered a new trial after information came out that the government failed to inform the judge, and hence the jury, that a key witness in the case, Deputy Alan Batts, had been the subject of an investigation concerning allegations of corruption for nearly a decade. Batts was never charged with any crime.

    Terri Reese served 7 months and was released on bond early to help defense attorneys prepare for trial.

    Over forty family, friends and supporters packed nearly the entire courtroom gallery to listen to arguments from the prosecution on why the Reeses should receive the maximum sentence. Defense attorneys argued to have the charges reduced to a misdemeanor claiming that Congress wrote statutes that apply to FFLs, Federal Firearms Licensees, making violations of Form 4473 a misdemeanor. The government claimed they have the option to prosecute under either felony or misdemeanor statutes.

    Curiously, AUSA Maria Armijo repeated a number of times during the proceedings that the government was not on trial today and that the government should not be punished – presumably by having the judge impose a lower sentence than the maximum penalty. Nothing was found in the pleadings reviewed that would explain why she might think the government was on trial today.

    Ultimately, Judge Brack agreed with the prosecution that it is the prosecutor’s option on whether to charge FFLs under either a felony statute or a misdemeanor statute. He was not swayed by the novel defense arguments that defendants have the right to choose which statutes to be sentenced under.

    AUSA Armijo attempted to have Judge Brack ignore the many character letters he had received in support of the Reeses. Family and friends pointed out how the Reeses were, she informed, and did not address their actions during the case. She also argued that the judge should consider all of the behavior associated with the 26 counts the Reeses were acquitted of when imposing a sentence.

    In essence, this observer felt that AUSA Armijo was arguing that the government knows that the Reeses were guilty of all counts charged, and that the judge should ignore the legal system that our country was founded on - a system where the jury is the finder of fact – not the government or the judge. The effect of this line of argument makes the prosecution the policeman, prosecutor, jury and judge. To a certain degree, the government is used to this result when they pressure defendants into pleading guilty or plea bargaining a reduced sentence in exchange for snitching on someone else. Guilty pleas avoid trials, and therefore avoid exposing any deficiencies in the evidence against defendants. Plea bargaining also skews statistics towards high conviction rates.

    Fortunately, Judge Brack decided that in this case the circumstances favored time served. He noted the Reeses had been law abiding citizens all of their lives. They had operated New Deal for many years without incident and had been long time residents. They are a close family, and the case had served them a heavy toll. Their business has been destroyed, and their property subjected to forfeiture. He reiterated a statement from a prior proceeding: the Reeses are not a danger to the public.

    The defense had asked the judge to consider a downward variance to to time served if the judge did not sentence them under the misdemeanor statutes. In this case, Judge Brack explained, the downward variance to the sentencing is appropriate.

    Rick Reese, the owner of New Deal Shooting Sports in Deming, NM was convicted of one count of a Form 4473 paperwork violation. His wife, Terri Reese, was convict one count of a Form 4473 paperwork violation. Ryin Reese was convicted of two counts of Form 4473 paperwork violations. The Reese family (including their youngest son Remington) was originally charged with 30 federal counts, including international gun smuggling, international money laundering, conspiracy in addition to the paperwork violations. Judge Brack threw out the money laundering charge during trial based on no evidence presented during trial. The jury acquitted them of the conspiracy and gun smuggling charges. Remington was acquitted on all counts. In the immediate aftermath of Brian Terry’s murder, the Fast and Furious case in Arizona, the Columbus case in New Mexico, and Agent Zapata’s murder in Texas, the government proceeded to spend millions and millions of taxpayer dollars investigating and prosecuting the Reeses. Some two hundred agents raided their home and business properties over a one week period the week of their arrests. The government seized most of their valuable property and is attempting to keep it all in a civil forfeiture case. Ironically, AUSA Maria Armijo characterized the Reeses as “greedy” for selling their firearms for a profit.

    Prior to Judge Brack pronouncing the sentence, each of the Reese attorneys spoke about their clients and positive things the judge should consider when deciding their sentence. AUSA Armijo continued to reiterate examples of behavior associated with counts of acquittal. Defense attorney Cory Harbour-Valdez also made a point by point comparison of the differences between Ian Garland, the FFL in the Columbus case, and the Reese family. The most notable difference was that Garland had pled guilty to selling 193 firearms to cartel smugglers, whereas the Reeses pled not guilty and their case involved at the most 35 firearms.

    Rick, Terri and Ryin, dressed smartly in business suits, addressed Judge Brack. None of them admitted guilt for the counts of conviction, although Judge Brack did attempt to solicit admissions of guilt and remorse. Rick admitted that he should have realized that there was a problem with Jose Roman, however, he simply didn’t realize there was a problem. He also pointed out that he had been selling firearms on the border for 25 years without problems. The only firearms that he is aware that have turned up at Mexican crime scenes were the ones purchased by Penny Torres.

    Now that sentencing is over, if there are no more appeals or motions in the criminal case, the government will start the scheduling process in the civil case. Should the government win the civil forfeiture case, each law enforcement agency involved will divvy up the proceeds of the Reese’s property and one or more individual law enforcement officers will receive individual bonuses.

    It is not known if the outcome of the criminal case will affect the civil forfeiture case. That case is expected to be scheduled sometime before the summer 2015.

    Pretty much across the board, family, friends and supporters of the Reeses believe that the Reeses were targeted as a scapegoat, as a diversion away from the government scandals related to Fast and Furious which involved thousands of firearms walked to the Mexican cartel, and the Columbus case, which involved hundreds of firearms. Those Columbus case firearms are also believed to have been walked to the Mexican cartel since the ATF and Border Patrol stopped the main straw purchaser/smuggler at the beginning of 2010 in a vehicle that contained firearms purchased by both Fast & Furious subjects and multiple straw purchasers in the Columbus case. Some of those firearms turned up at Mexican crime scenes shortly after the stop in Palomas, Mexico.

    Not including the firearms purchased in the undercover sting, the Reese case involved approximately 35 firearms – all purchased by straw purchaser Penny Torres and her brother. Torres admitted on the witness stand that the Reeses had no knowledge they were straw purchasing on behalf of cartel member Jose Roman. The government claimed the Reeses are the ones to blame for the deaths in Mexico.

    Conservatives are stuck in a situation remarkably similar to that a junkie. At one time, the GOP actually was the party of conservatives. It was great! There was NO question about which party to vote for. At an ever increasing pace, the GOP hardly embodies the conservative principles people of this nation are seeking. So now, the discussion across the country, and on Free Republic in particular, is along the lines of ‘You MUST shoot up this heroin just this one more time and avoid the inevitable pain and deep soul searching. Buy into the illusion that this will somehow bring the satisfaction it used. After all, what are you going to do? Become one of those meth heads?’

    A legitimately spoiled ballot does not HAVE to be recast, but CAN be recast, but that doesn’t make it a provisional ballot. Also, at the polls, every spoiled ballot, and the voting permit, is placed in it’s own envelope. In addition, if that same voter legitimately spoils another ballot or more, those too are placed in that individual envelope. Those envelopes then go to the county clerks office after the polls close. Not sure what happens to them from there.

    With the new machines in my county, the ballots must be filled out with a Sharpie. So I anticipate having to spoil many many ballots as there certainly are plenty of registered voters who do not know how to vote. The common ‘mistake’ is the voter will vote for multiple candidates for the same office. When the ballots could be filled out using a pencil, frequently they could just erase the additional candidates.

    Perhaps it was just one big misunderstanding. Perhaps the one man ‘in front’ truly went into the toilet stall to remove what he honestly thought was just an enormous dingle-berry stuck to his ass, that just happened to be in the shape of another man.

  • Voter Fraud Confirmed in New Mexico: Voter Turned Away After Illegal Voter Pretended to be Him

    “It was improper for the judge of elections to force him to file a provisional ballot;”

    Here in New Mexico, there would be no alternative BUT to give the guy a provisional ballot. Once a person votes, true identity or imposter, the computer system will not print out another ballot for said individual. This IS New Mexico, which rivals Chicago for voter fraud. State republican election lawyers are on call on Election Day. They do nothing. Dianna Duran, republican SOS, does nothing. The new voting machines are programmed so cleverly that when they print out a ballot, for somebody who uses the audio assistance feature (not a pen), the machine fills in the ovals making it look like it was done by hand rather than a ‘neat’ inside the oval mark.

    I’ve often thought one way to draw attention, and perhaps get something done, would be to early or mail-in vote for ALL democrat politicians and state employees. Not that I would advocate such, just sayin’.

    “Now wouldn’t a Senator Weh be a dream.”

    Ousting the Marxist extremist Udall is dream worthy. That said, and for reasons I will not write this close to the election, I abhor having to vote for Weh in order to remove Udall.

    “closing the gun-show loophole,” says Geoff Potter

    I’m so tired of libtards using these damn catch phrases that low information voters fall for. Another one I despise is “common sense gun control”.

    “Opportunities for learning were increasing. Knowledge was multiplying. Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press (1454) had vastly improved the dissemination of ideas.”

    I wonder how many years or decades it took before Bibles were mass produced in their entirety by that newfangled contraption of the printing press, giving the illiterate masses Sola Scriptura. Also have to wonder who was tasked to initially ‘edit’ those prints. Johannes Gutenberg, BTW, was a Catholic. (Disclaimer: I’m not much of a historian)
