LA School District Dumps $100,000 of Food in Trash Everyday

Government waste has taken on a whole new meaning in Los Angeles schools. Federal regulations that force specific diet requirements on school districts have resulted in at least $100,000 dollars worth of food landing in school dumpsters daily in the LA Unified School District alone. That’s an astounding $18 million dollars of food thrown away each year – Money that would be better spent in the classroom or returned to the taxpayer rather than ending up in a trash can.

Local Couple Upset After Receiving Pre-Marked Voter Registration Card From Covered California

In the late 1930s, the NAZI party used to register many people as NAZIs automatically and it was up to them to make the change if they didn’t want to be in the party.  However, doing so got them listed and investigated. One wonders…………..

By Preston Phillips

A local couple called 10News concerned after they received an envelope from the state’s Obamacare website, Covered California. Inside was a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an “x” in the box next to Democratic Party.

The couple – who did not want their identity revealed – received the letter and voter registration card from their health insurance provider Covered California, the state-run agency that implements President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

They have lived in La Mesa for years and they have always been registered to vote Republican. Now, they are perplexed as to how the voter registration card pre-marked Democrat ended up in their mailbox.

“I’m an old guy and I never would have noticed it, except I have an accountant that notices every dot and dash on a piece of paper as a wife,” said the man who received the mailer.

Covered California began mailing out voter signup cards to nearly 4 million enrollees last week after being threatened with a lawsuit by voting rights groups. But that does not explain the pre-filled out voter registration card.

“It’s a waste of money because there’s an awful lot of people who are going to get this that are already registered and they don’t need to. I can see that, but I can’t see putting x on the form before it’s given to me in a little bitty box that nobody’s really going to notice,” said the recipient of the mailer.

10News shared what was sent with Covered California.

Spokeswoman Anne Gonzales stated, “We are mailing voter registration material. However, the application forms come directly from the Secretary of State’s office, with no fields pre-marked. The individual should contact the Secretary of State, which takes these violations of election law extremely seriously, and they will investigate, using the unique serial number.”

The couple says they did reach out to the Secretary of State’s office and could not get a hold of anyone. They also say they reached out to the San Diego County Registrar of Voters, which told them to contact Covered California.

Federal Snipers Train Guns on Family For Filming Cattle

By Paul Joseph Watson

Federal snipers with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) trained guns on members of a family yesterday after they dared to stop and take video footage of cattle outside the bounds of a designated “First Amendment Area,” before arresting one of the men for non-compliance.

The cattle were being rounded up by BLM officers as part of a crackdown on Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who has refused to pay “grazing fees” demanded by the feds as a result of a re-classification of 600,000 acres of federal land in northeastern Clark County which Bundy claims has been in his family for generations.

Some fear the dispute could turn into a Ruby Ridge-style violent standoff because Bundy has said he is prepared to become a martyr for what he perceives as a constitutional stance against tyranny.

As we reported earlier, the feds have now started rounding up Bundy’s cattle in the name of protecting a supposedly endangered species, the desert tortoise, forbidding Bundy from interfering or even entering the vast area. The case is quickly turning into another iconic battle between big government and a besieged family.

Fears that the confrontation may turn violent and concerns that Bundy is drawing increased support from liberty activists and the local community prompted the feds to tape off two ridiculous “First Amendment Areas,” outside of which free speech in support of Bundy is banned. A sign placed inside the area reads “Welcome to Amerika – Wake Up” alongside a hammer and sickle logo.

When Bundy’s family members violated that rule yesterday in an attempt to peacefully document the cattle roundup, they were met with a barrage of loudspeaker warnings and four BLM snipers with their guns trained on the dissenters.

“Several members of the family had gone out for a drive in several vehicles to try to monitor the ongoing federal action to remove their father’s cattle from the range,” reports the Moapa Valley Progress. “They were not traveling on recently restricted federal land, but were traveling along the state highway looking north across the valley for signs of cattle, Ryan Bundy said.”

“He was doing nothing but standing there and filming the landscape,” Bundy said of his brother Dave. “We were on the state highway, not even off of the right-of-way. Even if they want to call [the area that we were filming] federal land; which it’s not; we weren’t even on it. We were on the road.”

None of the family members were armed, but as soon as Dave Bundy began filming the cattle in the distance, 11 BLM vehicles each with two agents arrived and surrounded him.

“They also had four snipers on the hill above us all trained on us. We were doing nothing besides filming the area,” said Ryan Bundy.

The family were told to leave the area via loudspeaker because they had violated the crudely established “First Amendment Area”.

“They said that we had no first amendment rights except for up by the bridge where they had established an area for that,” Bundy said.

When Dave Bundy didn’t immediately heed the warning and return to his vehicle, a dog was set on him and he was subsequently arrested.

“He was filming and talking on the phone, I don’t know to whom,” Ryan Bundy said. “It happened pretty fast. They came down on him hard and had a German Shepherd on him. And then they took him.”

When Dave Bundy’s father Cliven attempted to contact emergency response in both Mesquite and for Metro in an attempt to discover the whereabouts of his son, he was told to, “get off the phone or he would be arrested,” according to Ryan Bundy.

Should the Bundy case escalate any further, what has up to this point remained a largely local news story threatens to explode into a national controversy – re-igniting resentment over big government and a federal bureaucracy increasingly trampling on the rights of the American people to be left alone.

Lawless Obama Shreds More Constitutional Protections for Steel Core 5.45×39 Ammo

America was already pretty close to reaching a Kenya-style Third World tinpot dictatorship.

First, it was the VA’s efforts to disarm law-abiding military veterans for supposedly being “mental defectives,” even though 18 U.S.C. 922(g) requires “adjudications” and there were none.

Then, it was the BATFE’s actions to copy 4473′s and compile a gun registry, even though 18 U.S.C. 923(g) and other provisions of McClure-Volkmer prohibited that.

Then, it was Obama’s moves to illegally require reporting of multiple gun sales … and feed gun information into a national health database … and repeal federal privacy laws (HIPAA) … and try to ban the importation of shotguns.

All without any statutory authority whatsoever.

Now, within the last week, according to the Military Arms Channel Blog, the BATFE may be on the verge of banning the importation of steel core 5.45×39 ammunition by regulatory fiat.

According to the website, the rumor stems from an importer who had filed a Form 6 to bring a shipment of 7N6 surplus ammo from Russia.  The form approval went well past 2 weeks, which is the normal time frame for a Form 6 to be approved by the BATFE.

The importer emailed the BATFE to find out what was going on, and received this email response back:  ”A handgun has now been manufactured that chambers a 5.45×39 round.  That now makes steel core 5.45×39 armor piercing under our definition…”

This will not be the first time legal ammunition has been deemed by the BATFE to have become mysteriously illegal because a new gun has been created.

Nevertheless, this is certainly a strained and perverted reading of what “armor piercing ammunition” is — a definition which looks to the metallic content and/or the intended use of the ammunition — not to all possible uses.

A couple of points need to be made:

(1) First, the heavily-abused “armor piercing ammunition” ban was yet another gun control measure slammed through by Senator Bob Dole with the acquiescence of certain “pro-gun groups.”

(2) Second, if anyone wondered why we have fought for almost thirty years to oppose efforts to make the definition of “armor piercing ammunition” much broader, malleable, and subject to abuse, this recent BATFE action is their answer.

We have defeated Obama’s efforts to rewrite this definition by statute.  But it is clear that, if the Obama administration can’t get Congress to pass an ammunition ban, it will ban ammunition on its own accord.

BATFE will do what BATFE will do — or not.

But it is time for Congress to use the “power of the purse” to stop these repeated exercises to turn both the Constitution and the laws into a roll of toilet paper.

Please contact your representative. Tell him to reject any BATFE spending bill which does not defund BATFE’s unlawful regulatory activities.

It Is COMPLETELY LEGAL To Manufacture Your Own Firearm Without A Serial Number. 

The House of Representatives will soon be turning its attention both to BATFE’s funding and to limits on its activities. The recent BATFE raid on Ares Armor has only heightened that distrust of the agency, as agents confiscated the company’s customer list. Most gun owners believe the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) is illegally compiling a registration list.

So, how does one buy a lower receiver and legally turn it into a functioning firearm which has no serial number.

A person can legally purchase what is commonly known as an 80% lower receiver of an AR-15 which has no serial number, and after completing the machine work, can enjoy it for personal use. This lower receiver — if it does not have the required holes drilled and cavities milled in specific locations — is NOT considered a “firearm” by the BATFE.

To make it a functioning firearm, one must first drill several holes, mill out the frame where the trigger group fits and in some cases mill out the magwell.  Once they finish doing this, they have what BATFE considers a firearm. Although to make it a functioning firearm, a person will need to buy all the parts to finish the lower receiver and add an upper receiver to complete the gun.

It is COMPLETELY LEGAL to manufacture your own firearm without a serial number. 

Federal law does not contain any provision which prohibits a person from manufacturing his own firearm for his own personal use.  Chapter 44 of Title 18 in federal law is the main firearms law, which regulates the sale, transfer, importation and assembly of firearms.  Given that there is NO penalty or prohibition on a person making his own firearm for his own personal use, even the BATFE has concluded that this is legal.  The BATFE says:  “For your information, per provisions of the Gun Control Act (GCA) of 1968, 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44, an unlicensed individual may make a ‘firearm’ as defined in the GCA for his own personal use, but not for sale or distribution.”  (While we believe that BATFE is interpreting 18 U.S.C. 922(a) too narrowly, the point is that even they concede that manufacture for personal use is, in most cases, unregulated.)

However, considering the legal issues that gun owners could encounter, it might be advisable for a gun owner who manufactures his own gun to make up his own serial number and put it on the firearm.  Again, this is not legally required, but simply a preventative measure that could prevent many legal headaches in later having to defend yourself against officials who don’t understand the law.

And speaking of that, you should be sure to research this subject for yourself and be confident in what you are doing before embarking on such an operation.  One can read the BATFE’s own statements, where they admit it is legal to manufacture a firearm (as long as one doesn’t sell or transfer it).  And you should consult appropriate videos or other materials that you trust, as a guide for performing the appropriate milling operations.

BATFE Raids Ares Armor, Collects Gun Buyers’ Lists

By now, you may have heard about the raid on Ares Armor by the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (BATFE).

Ares Armor is a gun parts store that carries a lower receiver of an AR-15 which is considered only 80% of a completed firearm (and, hence, is not classified as a firearm).

According to owner Dimitri Karras, a BATFE official told him that if he would turn over his customer list, the raid could be avoided.

Nevertheless, Karras got a temporary restraining order (TRO) against the BATFE. But the agency got the TRO overturned by lying to the judge about Karras’ product — which, again, is not classified as a firearm.

During the raid, the BATFE stole much of his inventory of the 80% lower receivers and his customer list. That latter item — the Ares Armor customer list — appears to be what the BATFE especially wanted.

Since the AR-15 lowers are not firearms, the BATFE should, technically, have no authority in the matter at all.

Even the BATFE’s own rule making does not consider the 80% lower receivers to be firearms, so they should have no authority to regulate or confiscate them.

The AR-15 lowers have no serial numbers and they are not registered with the BATFE by means of a background check. (Customers buy the other 20% and assemble the gun for their own use, which is legal.)

Sadly, on March 15, the BATFE exhibited its infamous lawlessness by conducting what many gun owners consider to be an illegal raid.

GOA’s interview with Karras can be heard on demand at the GOA News Hour archive.

GOA’s related foundation (Gun Owners Foundation) stands with Ares Armor against BATFE’s arbitrary exercise of power to punish law-abiding businesses and create a gun registry, and should the need arise, our experienced legal team stands ready to assist the Ares Armor legal team.

This Woman’s Congressional Testimony is Going Viral

Doesn’t matter what your political affiliation is, the coercive power that the executive branch is unleashing is out of control.

This is overwhelming. This is a very brave young woman, and her story is one that no doubt has been repeated many times over, but without being presented to the public and the congress as this woman has done.
