UPDATE #3 – From ‘something’s rotten in Denmark to a Bad smell in Benwah’ – The Citadel: Gun-Loving Americans Signing Up to Live in Idaho Fortress Community’

idaho

This reeks of either well meaning if gullible people wanting a ‘community’ of like minded people or a scam by at least 1 and maybe 2 con artists.

By the way – the ‘walls’ surrounding the ‘citadel’ are to be 5′ thick and 20′ high.

Do you know what the cost of that much cement would be?

Jim Miller – from everything I can find – owns an ‘arms company that has exactly 2 – count them – 2 weapons. And at present because of supply problems – isn’t producing ANY weapons.

Yet the funding of the ‘citadel’ as outlined by him would be coming from the profits of III Arms.

Second – A Mr. Hyman /Sam Kerodin / Christian Kerodin / Sam Kerillion / Sam Hellesponte / Sam III or unknown other names used at this time is the primary driving force behind this endevor.

He is also a self-styled security consultant and convicted extortionist’.

When you are asked to pay money via the ‘application’ BEFORE they will answer sepcific questions re:financing, then this tells me this is a scam.

‘Well, that didn’t take long’.
‘Meet the Men Who Want to Build an Armed Castle Commune for ‘Patriots’

‘James L. Miller is many things, a motorcycle enthusiast, accused online scammer, doomsday prepper, gunmaker and cat lover’.
‘Christian Kerodin also wears a number of hats; he is an air conditioning repairman, blogger, author, self-styled security consultant and convicted extortionist’.
‘Both men also seem to be the masterminds behind a plan to build a massive, armed survivalist compound in Idaho that has been making national headlines’.

Blog Running – ‘These Are The People The Wall Street Journal Thinks We Should Have Sympathy For?

wall street journal feel sorry for poor

‘The Wall Street Journal had an article providing a fairly thorough breakdown of the new tax policies that will now be in effect due to the “fiscal cliff” agreement reached by congress’.

‘The article itself wasn’t too bad, really. In fact, it was mostly an objective piece. However, it did include one little thing that I thought was worth highlighting, and that was the “info” graphic that accompanied the article (see top image).’

‘Yes, in that graphic, every single one of those families makes a six figure income, the lowest being $180 thousand, and yet because of the new tax hikes imposed by Obama, they all appear as though he ran over the family dog’.

‘The median household income in the U.S. between 2007-2011 was $52,762, but the American people are all supposed to shed tears for those that make between three to twelve times as much? Seriously, how out of touch do you have to be to think that? Of course, this is the same outfit that supported a guy who thought making $250k qualified as “middle income”.

‘This is also further insulting considering right wingers bitch endlessly about government workers like teachers supposedly living high on the hog’.

‘I have to say though, the most puzzling thing about that comic: why is that minority couple who hasn’t had their taxes increased also depressed’?
‘Oh, also I would be remiss if I didn’t link to this highly appropriate piece by Gawker’s Hamilton Nolan’:

“The Top 1% Must Stop Insisting They’re Not Rich Right This Instant”
@ : http://gawker.com/5885705/the-top-1-must-stop-insisting-theyre-not-rich-right-this-instant

Out take from the Gawker article :

‘Now let’s examine a few of the expenses listed by the five “prosperous Torontonian” households that this piece uses to illustrate the fact that $196K a year really ain’t all that much. Here, a sampling of some of the monthly expenses of these “positively middle-class” folks’:

‘Gas for their Jeep Commander and Ford F-150 truck: $440’.
‘Cleaning lady: $160’.
‘Condo fees: $900’.
‘Gas for their Mercedes E320: $150. (“We buy a new Mercedes every three years; it’s our big indulgence,” says Doug. “We always pay cash. This one was $80,000.”)’
‘Wine: $800’.
‘Clothes at Harry Rosen and shoes from online collectible sneaker stores: $1,000’.
‘Groceries at Loblaws, Metro, Fortino’s and the Oriental Food Mart on Finch West: $1,600’
‘Hair salon: $400’.
‘Vitamins, creams and lotions at Shoppers: $400’.
‘Eating out, mostly at Swiss Chalet and Jack Astor’s: $840’.

What is wrong with the Republican Party – ‘GOP Congressman Compares Obama To Saddam Hussein’

obama compared to sadam

‘President Obama introduced a comprehensive plan to tackle gun violence on Wednesday, surrounded by children who wrote to him after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre’.

‘Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), who has already threatened to impeach Obama over his efforts, attacked Obama for inviting concerned children to his press conference’.

‘Speaking with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren on Tuesday night’ :

VAN SUSTEREN: “Well, we’ll find out tomorrow whether or not he’s going to do executive orders or whether or not he may ultimately seek to work with Congress on something”.

STOCKMAN: “He’s even using children. It reminds me of Saddam Hussein when he used kids”.

VAN SUSTEREN: “Uh, well that’s a little bit of a stretch, but anyway, Congressman, always nice to see you”.

Gun Nuts Out Of Control – ‘After Columbine Shooting, NRA Supported Gun Free School Zones It Now Opposes’

guns in schools

NRA 1999 –

““First, we believe in absolutely gun-free, zero-tolerance, totally safe schools. That means no guns in America’s schools, period … with the rare exception of law enforcement officers or trained security personnel”.

NRA 2013 –

“Politicians pass laws for Gun-Free School Zones. They issue press releases bragging about them. They post signs advertising them. And in so doing, they tell every insane killer in America that schools are their safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk.“

May 5th, 1994 – ‘Ford, Carter, Reagan Push for Gun Ban’

ford, carter and reagan sign letter against assualt weapons

WASHINGTON — ‘Three former presidents endorsed legislation Wednesday to ban the future manufacture, sale and possession of combat-style assault weapons as a closely divided House neared a showdown today on the hotly controversial issue’.

‘Gerald R. Ford, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan sent a letter to all House members expressing their support for the measure, effectively joining President Clinton in urging approval of the ban’.

“I beg the undecided members of the House–give this bill a chance,” Feinstein said in an emotional speech here. “I can’t really share with you the fear I feel if this does not get a positive vote.”

‘In their letter, the three former presidents said: “This is a matter of vital importance to the public safety. . . .’

“Although assault weapons account for less than 1% of the guns in circulation, they account for nearly 10% of the guns traced to crime. . . .”

“While we recognize that assault-weapon legislation will not stop all assault-weapon crime, statistics prove that we can dry up the supply of these guns, making them less accessible to criminals”.

“We urge you to listen to the American public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of these weapons.”
