    Years ago my friend, Brian was at a park on lake Houston.
    Well he saw a pigmy rattler. So he caught it and put it in his tackle box. A lot of beer was involved. And he had to show it off.

    Well he got bit and really freaked out. Paramedics came out and he was fighting with them. They strapped him to the gurney and took him to the closest hospital.

    Well the ER folks unstrapped him and he started fighting with them. They refused to treat him. The paramedics strapped him down again and took him way across town to Ben Taub. He was in the hospital a long long time.

    From NewsMax:

    http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/New-Orleans-executive-action-immigration-appeals-court/2015/04/16/id/639085/

    That court is one of the most conservative in the nation, and the random selection for judges to serve on the panel resulted in two conservatives and one liberal being chosen.

    At issue are Obama’s executive actions taken last fall that would grant amnesty to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants currently living in the U.S. In February, a federal judge in Texas issued a ruling that temporarily blocked the administration’s measure.

    The administration wants the immigration orders put into action, and now it’s looking for the Texas judge’s ruling to be lifted by the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.

    The panel features conservative judges appointed by President Ronald Reagan and President George W. Bush. The other judge is an Obama appointee.

    The conservatives on the panel, Judges Jerry Smith and Jennifer Walker Elrod, have ruled against the Obama administration in the past in cases concerning the Affordable Care Act and immigration.

    The problem, as I understand it, is for a modern firearm with a bore over 1/2 inch to not be defined as a destructive device. It must be either a shotgun or a rifle.

    The definition of a shotgun states it’s shoulder fired.
    So pistol gripped shotguns, except 410’s, are now destructive devices.

    Under the NFA, “The term “destructive device” means .. any type of weapon by whatever name known which will, or which may be readily converted to, expel a projectile by the action of an explosive or other propellant, the barrel or barrels of which have a bore of more than one-half inch in diameter, except a shotgun or shotgun shell which the Secretary finds is generally recognized as particularly suitable for sporting purposes...” 26 U.S.C.§5845

    Now does that mean that the .69 caliber rifles used in the civil war are Destructive Devices?

    And the currently popular 58 caliber black powder guns?

    And how about the British 600 and 700 Nitro Express rifles?

    Even more twists!

    Press release

    Law Offices of Orly Taitz

    TX Judge, who ruled to stop Obama amnesty, to rule on Motion by Attorney Orly Taitz for sanctions due to Obama’s intentional release from DHS detention of illegal aliens with deadly infectious diseases.

    Attorney Orly Taitz filed in July of 2014 her legal action against Barack Obama, Sec of DHS Jeh Johnson and Sec. of HHS Sylvia Burwell seeking an injunction and halt of the transportation by the defendants all over the country of illegal aliens, many of whom are afflicted with infectious diseases, among them deadly drug resistant Tuberculosis.

    The judge on this case is Judge Andrew Hanen, who stopped Obama’s amnesty. Judge Hanen already issued an order to show cause to the defense, why shouldn’t he rule in favor of the plaintiff,Orly Taitz.

    Judge Hanen conducted two injunction hearings: in August and October of 2014. During those hearings defendants brought 3 attorneys and multiple witnesses who swore that they check all illegal aliens prior to their release into general population and they do not endanger the public.

    Today, on April 13, 2015, the court docketed a new motion by Taitz with new information showing that defendants are committing fraud on the court and releasing individuals with drug resistant Tuberculosis into general population.

    Taitz v Johnson Notice of new facts and motion for sanctions. Taitz provided Judge Hanen with a letter from US Senators and US representatives as well as a letter from a County director of Health stating that the defendants are releasing from their DHS/INS facilities individuals with deadly drug resistant tuberculosis, which is a reckless disregard to human life.

    Taitz argues that this represents fraud on the court for which defendants should be sanctioned. Defendant’s response is due by May 1st. Additionally, Taitz previously provided the court with information showing that defendants not only causing transfer of infectious diseases, but also massive theft of IDs and Social Security numbers that are used by illegal aliens to obtain jobs and benefits to the detriment of the US citizens and taxpayers.

    Taitz provided Judge Hanen with 150 pages of evidence, showing that Barack Obama is one of individuals, who is using a stolen CT Social Security number of an individual born in 1890 and presumed to be deceased with no heirs, as well as other bogus ID. Evidence of forgery, fabrication, fraud and identity theft in Obama’s IDs

    Elderberry to jaydee770

    looking at some of ATF’s warped rulings, like this one:

    ATF Rul. 95-3
    [Status of ruling: Active]
    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) has examined various 37/38 mm gas/flare guns in combination with certain types of ammunition to determine whether these are destructive devices as defined in the Gun Control Act (GCA), 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44, and the National Firearms Act (NFA), 26 U.S.C. Chapter 53.
    Section 5845(f), Title 26, United States Code, classifies certain weapons as “destructive devices” which are subject to the registration and tax provisions of the National Firearms Act (NFA).

    Section 5845(f)(2) provides as follows:
    (f) Destructive device.—The term “destructive device” means * * * (2) any type of weapon by whatever name known which will, or which may be readily converted to, expel a projectile by the action of an explosive or other propellant, the barrel or barrels of which have a bore of more than one-half inch in diameter, except a shotgun or shotgun shell which the Secretary or his delegate finds is generally recognized as particularly suitable for sporting purposes; . . .”

    It looks like all the old British 577, 600, and 700 nitro express rifles, since they are over .500” and not shotguns, are destructive devices.

    And don’t take the stock off your shotgun and replace it with a pistol grip. Since now to be a shotgun, it must have a shoulder stock. Otherwise, it too is a destructive device.

    And what about those .69 caliber muzzleloaders? I guess they’re destructive devices too.

    Half an hour ago, Congressman John Culberton (R-Harris Co) called TSRA and asked that we get the message out to our members.

    The ban on green tip ammo has been repealed and it’s gone for good!

    Congressman Culberson chairs a committee with direct influence over BATF and was able to convince those within the agency to remove the ban. We were also told that the ban was actually the first of several. All part of a “research project” designed to review many types of common ammunition which might be armor-piercing.

    God Bless the Texas Delegation and God Bless Congressman John Culberson who remembers TSRA members sent him to Congress many years ago and took a moment to call.

  • Taitz' immigration case in Texas advances; Few answers, plentiful attorneys

    08/29/2014 8:15:50 PM PDT · 1 of 7
    Elderberry
    Although recent polls show that the majority of U.S. citizens want the border closed, do not want the burden of supporting illegal immigrants and do not want the various problems which result from allowing the invasion of illegal immigrants into the country, the U.S. government continues to boldly defend the invasion of illegals at the U.S.-Mexico border and the costly transportation of the aliens. The defendants from the U.S. government now have three attorneys on the case, Taitz v. Johnson, giving the appearance that they are disturbingly aggressive in representing 'illegal immigrants' and that the case could possibly be titled, "Illegal Aliens vs. U.S. Citizens."

    The most impressive aspect of the Taitz vs. Johnson hearing at Brownsville, Texas, U. S. District Court on August 27, 2014, were the responses from the U.S. government witnesses. The answers indicated a lack of knowledge and ambivalence regarding infectious diseases and the spread of the diseases, lack of concern for the movement, tracking and location of illegal immigrants after the U.S. government has flown them to various locations throughout the country, a danger to national security by allowing a vague ID process and allowing the illegal immigrants to travel essentially with a 'piece of paper,' a disregard for U.S. citizens by jetting illegal immigrants around the country at taxpayers' expense -- including travel expenses for Homeland Security and INS employees to supervise the children on planes, and an obvious disregard for U.S. law.

    Dr. Taitz has recently issued a statement, PRESS RELEASE: Judge Hanen schedules injunction hearing for October 29, 2014, right before the election, tells Enforcement and Removal INS agent: you don't do either enforcement or removal, describing the court proceedings and her perspective on the August 27th Brownsville, Texas, hearing.

    Many answers from U.S. government witnesses were perplexing. At times, responses seemed to conclude, "I don't know why we don't follow U.S. law and don't care; I just do my job."

    The witness from Health and Human Services was Teresa M. Brooks, Supervisory Field Program Specialist - South Texas, Division of Children’s Services, Office of Refugee Resettlement, Administration of Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Attorney Taitz asked Teresa Brooks whether illegal immigrant children "could be flown to an area and handed to an illegal immigrant who has a criminal record." Brooks appeared defensive and protective of illegal immigrants when the question was asked. When the judge intervened, asking if the situation was possible, Brooks stated, "It could happen."

    When asked about the current availability of doctors for 'illegal immigrant children,' Brooks, a government witness, admitted that only 2 doctors were available for referrals which could possibly include 5000 children.

    Answers from the government witnesses continued to be scarce and vague; that is, government officials from the United States of America lacked knowledge or were unable to explain why they are not following U.S. laws.

    It appeared that illegal immigrants are casually and deliberately released into the U.S. by the government with little or no concern for tracking them. Dr. Taitz asked, "Is there was any reason not to ask for bail?" and "Is there any way to track those children after they are released? Judge Hanen added the question, "Why do we assume that someone who is in the country illegally will show up for a hearing?

    The witness from U.S. Customs was Kevin Oaks, Chief, Rio Grande Valley Sector, Border Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Lack of knowledge in the medical area for government officials who are in charge of controlling the current illegal immigration crisis in the U.S. seemed apparent. Dr. Taitz asked Chief of Border Patrol, Kevin Oaks, "Do you know the incubation period for Ebola and scabies?" Chief Oaks seemed unfamiliar with incubation periods and responded, "No." When Taitz asked, "Do you have a manual for Ebola," he again responded, "No." Chief Oaks stated that doctors did not check 'illegal immigrant children' and indicated that they were routinely screened for health problems by border patrol agents.

    When asked by Judge Hanen what the U.S. was doing to stop the surge of illegal immigrants at our border,U.S. Border Patrol Chief Kevin Oaks simply spoke of "messaging " in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

    The witness from U.S. Immigration was Alfredo Fierro, Deputy Field Office Director, Enforcement and Removal Operations, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Referencing the possibility of Islamic terrorist groups invading the Southern border during the current crisis, Dr. Taitz asked Deputy Field Office Director, Alfredo Fierro, "Do you know if members of Islamic terrorists groups or people from Muslim countries who are known for supporting terrorism have entered the U.S. through the U.S.-Mexico border?" Deputy Fierro admitted that he knew people from Muslim countries, known for supporting terrorism, were crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Judge Hanen asked U.S. government witnesses additional questions, stating that all of the questions were not relevant to the case at this point. Some of the questions were:

    We don't stop anyone at the border, do we? If I am on the Mexico side, and I swim the river . . . . I swim right up to a border agent, you're not going to stop me?

    We didn't actually try to prevent any of the people from coming into the U.S.?

    We let people come in, and we arrest them?

    Would you say that turning them over illegally to a person who is here illegally neither enforces the law or removes the individual?

    We will do nothing to prevent them from crossing?

    Do you know why you are transporting them?

    What percentage of them actually show up for court appearances?

    Since the August 27, 2014, hearing, Dr. Taitz announced a new ruling from Judge Hanen, Judge Hanen denied the government's motion to quash subpoena for one of key witnesses. Several border patrol agents are willing to travel to TX and testify in court about the government trafficking illegals with infectious diseases and placing the gag order on officers, preventing them to speak out about it and about an armed incursion into the US from Mexico through tunnels dug under the border, attaching an order denying a government motion to quash a subpoena for one of Taitz' key witnesses.

    From listening to U.S. government witnesses in this case, viewers were likely to conclude that illegal immigration is now encouraged by the current policy of the U.S. government -- never mind any U.S. law. Illegal immigrants, often with 'questionable identity' or 'questionable health status due to possible exposure to contagious diseases,' are systematically released by a planned policy of the Obama Administration and deliberately transported throughout the U.S. with no concern for tracking them and no concern for U.S. federal laws. In fact, illegal aliens may be flown across the country and handed to a person who says they are a parent or relative -- even thought the person may be an illegal alien with a criminal record.

    Answers from U.S. government witnesses in this illegal immigration case could be characterized as 'astonishing.' Viewers must have left the courtroom wondering why U.S. government officials could not provide adequate answers to such questions as, "What are we doing to secure the border?" or "Why are you not enforcing the law and removing them?" Or "Do you know why you are transporting them?"

    A new report from Judicial Watch, available today, is relevant to the Taitz v. Johnson, and it provides an alert to all U.S. citizens. The report, which is described by Andrew C. McCarthy, is another validation of Dr. Taitz' concern of an unsecured U.S. border and the failure of government officials to enforce immigration laws; it alerts of possible Islamic terrorist attacks and national-security vulnerability created by the Obama administration’s non-enforcement of the immigration laws.

    McCarthy quotes a Judicial Watch report in Judicial Watch: Feds’ Bulletin Describes Threat of Imminent Terrorist Attack on Southern Border, stating, "Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat."

    The Judical Watch report accuses the Obama Administration of covering up the disturbing information, "The administration has also covered up, or at the very least downplayed, a serious epidemic of crime along the Mexican border even as heavily armed drug cartels have taken over portions of the region. Judicial Watch has reported that the U.S. Border Patrol actually ordered officers to avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re 'too dangerous' and patrolling them could result in an 'international incident' of cross border shooting."

    McCarthy emphasizes the importance of the newly-reported and alarming Southern border information by stating, "These new revelations are bound to impact the current debate about the border crisis and immigration policy."

    From Orly’s site Today:

    Press release: Judge Hanen schedules injunction hearing for Oct 27, right before the election, tells Enforcement and Removal INS agent: you don’t do either enforcement or removal

    Posted on | August 27, 2014 | No Comments

    Press release: Judge Hanen schedules injunction hearing for Oct 27, right before the election, tells Enforcement and Removal INS agent: you don’t do either enforcement or removal .

    Today was a grueling four and a half hour hearing . Now there are 3 attorneys representing the government and they brought to the hearing representatives of border patrol, DHS and HHS. Associated press sent their representative and AP report and interview should come out shortly. The transcript will be provided to the public when it is available. At the hearing the border patrol agent testifies that they do not have doctors checking the illegal aliens. The border patrol agents check them. The border patrol agent in charge did not even know what is an incubation period, he was clueless about the fact that it might take 3 weeks for Ebola to show or 2 months for Scabies to show.

    A representative from HHS knew very little about what is happening in the camps which are run by the Baptist charities. She stated that there is a doctor in DC who oversees these facilities. She was asked by Taitz, don’t you think that it is insufficient for one doctor to oversee hundreds of children with TB, H1N1, scabies and other diseases. She said it is not hundreds. She was asked by Taitz, how many illegal alien children camps/ facilities are under her supervision, she said that there are 90. When asked how many children are there in every facility, she said: between 35 and 200, average being about 50. So, Taitz told her that by simple math, 90 camps with 50 children each, it would be some 5,000 or so children who are being seen by one doctor in DC, that is a ration of 5,000 to one doctor. She said: we have 2 doctors.

    Further, she was asked about the transportation of illegals. Both HHS and INS officials are admitted that they are spending taxpayer funds to pay for airplane tickets for both illegal alien children and HHS/ INS employees supervising them.

    The judge was really unhappy about what he was hearing. He said that what is going on is not the law, it is a policy by the government and it is not right. He said that instead of deporting illegal aliens, the government is spending tax payer money to transport these illegal alien children to their illegal alien parents.

    The judge said: how can you even imagine that these people will ever show up for deportation hearings: illegal aliens are signing forms saying that they will make sure that their illegal alien children or other relatives will show at the hearings. The judge said that it is a common sense matter, it is clear that they will not show up. Further, the judge got extremely upset when he heard that HHS allows these illegal alien children to be released into custody of people who are not only illegal aliens themselves, but also people with a criminal record.

    The judge also said that they should not be called children, these are mostly teenagers 14-17, who are being labeled as children, but these are not little children.

    The judge also, asked the US attorney: do you want to tell me that the government might release from custody a person with Ebola or some other disease, this person will infect people around him, they will infect doctors, who come into contact with this person, doctors like doctor Taitz, and you tell me that people, who are affected, do not have any standing to sue the government?

    INS rep admitted that he knew of people from Muslim countries, known for supporting terrorism, are crossing the border. Border patrol agent and INS agent admitted that TSA does not call them to verify whether the people, who board the planes without IDs, are indeed, who they say they are. INS agent admitted that when they don’t have enough beds, they just release illegal aliens on their own recognizance, they just let them go. In other instances they send them to Catholic charities, who buy buss ticket for them and drop them at the bus station. The audience at the hearing was gasping, it was crystal clear to everyone that the whole system is a complete sham. We do not have a National security and pretty soon we will not have a nation, this regime is simply destroying the national security, building the North American union and the New World order.

    The judge asked HHS and DHS representatives: so, let’s say you fly these people to Idaho and they are supposed to appear for a deportation hearing there and they move to Montana, what happens then? The HHS rep said: then, I guess, they are in Montana. She was just shrugging her shoulders as the judge was shaking his head. She looked very uncomfortable. All he people, who were testifying, knew that what they are doing is very wrong, they knew that Obama administration opened the borders widely and there is zero border protection. At some point the judge told the INS enforcement and removal agent: you are not doing either enforcement or removal. All the witnesses were pretty much saying: don’t blame us, we are just following the orders.

    Counsel for Defendants

  • Federal judge in Texas sets hearing on August 27, 2014, for immigration case

    08/16/2014 5:12:34 AM PDT · 1 of 12
    Elderberry
    Dr. Orly Taitz, Attorney, is seeking, among other requests, a two-month quarantine for the treatment and prevention of disease and for the spreading of infectious diseases in the general population -- particularly in public schools.

    Taitz specifies in her complaint that she is requesting an order from the court "to either turn around and deport illegal aliens caught by the border patrol" or "a written medical release, criminal record form the countries of origin, and an order by the immigration/deportation judge finding legal basis for U.S. residency, prior to release of such illegal aliens into the general population." She emphasizes the threat of 'ebola' - a potentially deadly disease which requires quarantine, drug resistant tuberculosis, scabies, measles, bacterial meningitis and other infectious diseases.

    Diseases which are listed in Dr. Taitz' original complaint of July 14, 2014 -- Tuberculosis, Measles, Scabies, Pertussis (Whooping Cough), Lice, Swine Flu, Bacterial Pneumonia -- had been confirmed during the recent flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S.

    Dr. Taitz is asking the court "to grant a stay of all trafficking of illegal aliens" and "stay implementation of DACA (Deferred Action on Child Arrivals)," which she describes as a magnet and an incentive for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens to cross the U.S. border and violate U.S. immigration laws and U.S. sovereignty.

    Announcing the upcoming hearing, Press release: Taitz v Johnson hearing scheduled for August 27. Obama, Sec of DHS and Sec of HHS to show cause, why shouldn’t the court stop their trafficking of illegal aliens all over the nation, Dr. Taitz explains her reason for the complaint which was filed in United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Brownsville, Texas.

    Defendants in Taitz v. Johnson et al are Jeh Johnson, Secretary of Department of Homeland Security; Sylvia Burwell, Secretary of Health and Human Services; Barack Obama, U.S. President; U.S. Border Patrol, Rio Grande Valley Section, Brownsville Station.

    The August 13, 2014, order by Judge Hanen lists recipients of notification for the August 27, 2014, hearing as: Colin Kisor, U.S. Department of Justice; Daniel David Hu, U.S. Department of Justice; and Orly Taitz.

    Judge Hanen's order advises counsel that both counsel and/or witnesses should be prepared to address the following topics:

    (1) The standing of the Plaintiff (either individually or as a class representative)

    (2) The ability of an individual citizen, even with standing, to question executive authority over immigration matters

    (3) The Defendants’ past and current efforts to secure the southern border of the United States (including the efforts to stop the influx illegal aliens, minors and adults in 2014)

    (4) All aspects of the apprehension, processing and subsequent placement of the illegal minors in 2014 included specifically the recent influx from Mexico and Central America

    (5) The Defendants’ efforts to comply with the Flores settlement inconjunction with the recent influx of minors

    (6) The application, if any, of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals to this case

    (7) The examination, diagnosis and treatment of any illegal alien minors with any medical conditions in 2014

    (8) The detention and/or all other means to house illegal alien minors who have entered the country in 2014

    The daily news continues to report crimes throughout the U.S. which involve illegal immigrants, some of whom had been deported but returned to the U.S.

    A new report from the inspector general at the Department of Homeland Security describes mismanagement. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released 2,226 illegals under the Obama administration -- and 617 of those released had criminal records.

    The release of the illegals by the Obama administration during the week before the sequestration led some people to think that the move was politically motivated. "President Obama claimed that the automatic budget cuts would hurt the economy, health care and emergency responders, and that federal prosecutors would have to ‘let criminals go'," is the explanation of Sharyl Attkisson in Obama Administration Released Over 600 Illegal Immigrants With Criminal Convictions.

    Due to potential danger from violent drug and weapons traffickers and gang members, along with lack of assistance from the Obama Administration to stop the current border invasion, many states are beginning to take charge of the crisis.

    Dressed in camouflage, National Guard troops which were deployed by Gov. Rick Perry have been seen this week near the Texas border, manning observation towers along the road leading to the Hidalgo International Bridge.

    State officials in Texas have estimated that the deployment of the National Guard mission to protect Texas citizens will cost $12 million per month.

    Many schools throughout America have expressed concern about the extra cost of educating increasing numbers of illegal immigrant children who have invaded the U.S. border.

    Mario Trujillo describes information which was sent to schools this week by the Obama administration in Obama prepares schools for migrant children. Trujillo says that the Obama administration is preparing the nation’s schools "to accept thousands of new students who illegally crossed the southwest border and are now awaiting trials on their possible deportations." He describes a 'fact sheet' highlighting the children’s right to attend public school. The Department of Education sent the fact sheet to states and schools this week to warn of the children’s right to attend public school.

    The cost of educating illegal immigrants is currently $10,900 per student for each school year, plus an additional $1,083 for English Second Language classes, according to a report described by Merrill Hope in Dallas ISD May Give Glimpse Into Migrant Education Costs.

    The average time for an immigration proceeding in the 'entire U.S.' during 2014 is well over 500 days.

    Mario Trujillo summarized the current border crisis by warning, "The prospect of tens of thousands of children mostly from Central American countries attending school as they wait for their immigration status to be decided has the potential to be explosive after this summer’s emotional public debate about the border."

    So . . . illegal immigrants are protected by the U.S. government with a 'fact sheet' which warns American citizens of aliens' rights.

    Why doesn't the Obama Administration issue a 'fact sheet' acknowledging that U.S. taxpayers -- U.S. citizens -- have spoken on the subject of illegal immigration? . . . . . . The majority of citizens want the U.S. border closed, and they do not want the burden of supporting illegal immigrants --- or the risk of infectious, potentially deadly, diseases which have recently been carried into the country through the U.S.-Mexican border.

    It will be a hot day in Brownsville, Don't you think?
