King County Washington State Isolates Consumers From Cherry Topping? Un-American!

Washington State… I’m Back…

Well, it took just 2 hours back in the state yesterday, to get me riled with a ‘Nanny State” directive at the behest of just King County in this glorious state known for

…Washington State produces more than 50% of all the sweet cherries in the United States…

But in Seattle or all of King County don’t think about having Cherry flavored dipping added to your Dairy Queen ice cream cone. This is validated via

Introducing the DQ® Nutrition Calculator: United States

…(5) some location-specific menu items; and (6) locations in some municipalities (including Stamford, CT, Boston, MA, Montgomery County, MD, Philadelphia, PA, and King County, WA) with laws or regulations restricting artificial trans fat in restaurant ingredients, that may have slightly different products than other DQ locations…

Or not at all, as the DQ employee here advised.there is no Cherry Dipped Ice Cream in all of King County due to Trans Fat but the next county down the road serves it!

Take that Grandma… as you just flew half way across the country just to be 2 miles short of providing your Grandchild a special treat.

Why do I believe from the list of cities above that this is a Liberalcling‘ issue and since the minions don’t believe in their own moderation, they make it a ‘federal or state’ case. The irony! There are so many ways this article could have gone… but conservatives have standards.

Who Was Keeping ‘Operation Castaway’ Florida in Check? Where is Janet Napolitano and Eric Holder?

Diligently playing CYA?

Certainly appears that many agencies were aware that international trafficking was ongoing...

Press Release ATF September 21, 2010

“United States Attorney’s Office, ATF, and ICE Announce Results of Major International Firearms Trafficking Investigation

Orlando, Florida — United States Attorney A. Brian Albritton, Virginia O’Brien, Special Agent in Charge of central and northern Florida Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) operations, and Susan McCormick, Special Agent in Charge, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations, Tampa Field Office announce the initial results of Operation Castaway, an intensive and wideranging Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) firearms trafficking investigation conducted by ATF, ICE, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, and the Miami-Dade Police Department. ATF describes Operation Castaway as the most significant firearms trafficking investigation in Central Florida history.

According to court documents, a group of defendants connected to Hugh Crumpler, III, were involved in a major international gun trafficking operation. Crumpler has trafficked, for several years, more than 1000 firearms to various groups and defendants who have exported these weapons all over Central and South America and to Puerto Rico. The defendants trafficked in Glock semi-automatic handguns, Fabrique Nationale Herstal 5.7x28mm semi-automatic handguns (“FN pistols”), and AR-15 styled short-barreled rifles, among other firearms. The FN pistols in particular are weapons of choice for drug trafficking organizations and paramilitary groups. Easily concealed and capable of firing a rifle round of ammunition that can penetrate law enforcement body armor, the pistols are referred to by cartel members in Mexico, South America, Central America, and Puerto Rico as “matapolicias” or “cop killers.” AR-15-styled rifles are popular among the same criminal groups.

Firearms like those involved in this investigation are often smuggled through Honduras and other Central and South American countries before being used in violent crimes in Mexico and other countries in the region. A number of the firearms trafficked by the defendants in Operation Castaway have been linked to violent crimes around the world. Several firearms trafficked by Crumpler and Ramon Lopez, Jr. were used in crimes associated with the Torres Sabana Drug Trafficking Organization, a notorious and violent drug trafficking organization in Puerto Rico. Another firearm, a Glock pistol, was recovered in Medellin, Colombia, South America, after being used to commit a homicide. Yet another firearm was found in the possession of a hitman for Oficina de Envigado, an organization described by the Department of Treasury as “a violent Medellin-based organized crime group that engages in large-scale drug trafficking and money laundering activities in Colombia.”

On Monday and Tuesday of this week, U.S. District Judge Gregory A. Presnell sentenced several of the Operation Castaway defendants. Hugh Crumpler, III (age 63, of Palm Bay) was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison for dealing firearms without a license and unlawfully possessing short barreled rifles; Ramon Lopez, Jr. (age 29, of Kissimmee) was sentenced to 74 months in federal prison for dealing firearms without a license and unlawfully possessing short barreled rifles; Carlos Humberto Guillen-Rivera (age 29, of Honduras) was sentenced to 84 months in federal prison for conspiring to possess and illegally possessing short barreled rifles; Cesar Augusto Guillen-Rivera (age 31, of Honduras) was sentenced to 65 months in federal prison for conspiring to possess and illegally possessing short barreled rifles; Erlin Javier Guillen-Rivera (age 25, of Honduras) was sentenced to 63 months in federal prison for conspiring to possess and illegally possessing short barreled rifles; and Hector Saenz (age 38, of Honduras) was sentenced to 46 months for conspiracy.

Operation Castaway defendant Jesus Puentes pleaded guilty on August 31, 2010 to conspiring to possess and illegally possessing short barreled rifles and will be sentenced on November 18, 2010. Defendant Jorge Acosta has pleaded guilty to conspiring to possess and illegally possessing short barreled rifles. Acosta will be sentenced at a future date.

Two additional defendants, Antonia Ruiz-Varela and Manuel Dejesus Carrasco-Ruiz, are still at large and have yet to be arrested by authorities. Any information about their whereabouts should be forwarded to ATF.

“Eliminating this type of organization and taking its high-level weaponry off the streets will increase safety not only for our citizens but for people abroad. I commend the work of the federal agents in bringing this group down, as well as the contributions of our local partner agencies,” said U.S. Attorney Albritton.

“ATF investigates unlicensed firearm dealers across the country, this one unlicensed individual revealed a firearms trafficking ring so far reaching it funneled hundreds of firearms to criminal markets both domestic and international,” said Virginia O’Brien, Special Agent in Charge of central and northern Florida ATF operations.

ICE Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent in Charge in Tampa Susan McCormick said, “Gun and drug trafficking fuels violence by criminal organizations and threatens the security of the people along our borders and throughout the country. ICE special agents will continue working jointly with our law enforcement partners to utilize our expertise in import and export enforcement in order to keep our citizens safe and secure.”

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys J. Bishop Ravenel and E. Jackson Boggs. Operation Castaway remains an ongoing investigation.”

Certainly appears that BATF knew who they were looking for the day after the previous press release and I sure hope there’s an internal internet solution to spreading this information because various internet search engines reveal few links to just these two men…

ATF News Release September 22, 2010

“ORLANDO, Fla. — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) Tampa Field Division is seeking the public’s assistance in locating two fugitives who are wanted for federal firearms trafficking violations.

Don’t forget to search for current suspect home based cities for Project Gunrunner, Gunwalker and Fast & Furious as well. Pop Houston in for both years, then scan the stimulus links below

More links to agencies from the Stimulus, imagine how these interact…







Now who is in charge of the various agencies? Why… isn’t it Janet Napolitano and Eric Holder and therefore Barack Hussein Obama?

Must research more, because this is just the tip of this second iceberg or the base to another wobbling house of cards.

Are There Different Degrees of Reporting Illegal Activity? What is the Criteria?

DWS identifies, fires 2 employees over immigration list

ksltube | July 20, 2010

The Utah Department of Workforce Services has identified and fired two employees it says are responsible for compiling the list of more than 1,300 supposed illegal immigrants.

Question via email to me from yesterday:


Utah Attorney General to open investigation of immigrant hit list
I even have a blog info page just to learn how to report illegal alien immigrants attached here: Report an Illegal Alien for convenience.

When it’s all said and done, the United States of America via Utah now has a set of DOCUMENTED alien immigrants. Whatever will ICE do with this information? I also see a couple of Heroines? What say you Patriots?

And it appears many also hold Social Security numbers? Hmm? Is yours among them? Forged documents would be a second crime, hmm? What is the criteria for TOO ILLEGAL?

Even as I notated on Twitter yesterday~

Table A-2. Employment status of the civilian population by race, sex, and age – http://ow.ly/2dy95 hmm? no Hispanic details?

I’m thinking why not?


Arkansas, Oklahoma and Tennessee Citizens Getting Bypassed In Health Care for Mexican Nationals aka Illegal Aliens!

With this bit of news ~ “New health-initiative partnership includes UAMS, Blue & You Foundation”, I just had to begin digging in Arkansas today…

Could it be all about the money?
Blue and You Foundation – List of Grants Awarded
UAMS College of Public Health, Mexican Consulate Team Up for Public Health Initiatives

No, of course it couldn’t!!!

I wonder if the Mexican Consul General Carlos Garcia is aware of the Arkansas Illegal Immigrant Benefits Ban Amendment? Is UAMS College of Public Health and the Blue and You Foundation aware? hmm?

Looks like there is no trouble as Secure Arkansas gathers signatures for ballot initiative is moving rapidly in on meeting its goal.

And don’t let any illegal immigrants stop UAMS and Blue from stomping all over the U.S. Constitution and the tax-paying citizens of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Tennessee or impede their health care for the mucho dinero! Ever heard of ICE otherwise known as US Immigration and Customs Enforcement?

Oklahoma and Tennessee check it out! Who if anyone authorized this circumvention of U.S. Law?
