that this past week by declaring a shooting war against all law enforcement. They have taken a page out of the Mexican drug cartels playbook. That is to say they will no longer be arrested quietly nor go to prison with their heads bowed. They are killing prosecutors and prison heads.
From their point of view it makes sense. Aryan Brotherhood is and has always been a well organized, military trained, white, American gang of drug dealing entrepreneurs The Mexican drug cartels have led the way in the war on drugs. They fight back with military precision. We are now seeing that with Aryan Nation. This weeks assassinations are just the beginning.
I think American law enforcement are powerless to stop them. They are not prepared for what is about to come their way.
Black Gangsters have always had running gun battles with police in cities like Los Angeles. They have always shot back and protected their inner city turf from police. The police in big cities let black and Mexican gangs have their turf rather than go to war with them. Nobody really cares. It is understood. “You stay here in your black neighborhoods, but stay out of the white upper and middle class areas. ” It all seems to work out. But this is different. No one has sought out prosecutors and high level officials and assassinated them in a systematic way.
The game has changed. Good ole boy hang em high cowboy prosecutors from Texas are no match for Aryan Nation. They should be afraid, because the entire American prison system and gangland is about to blow up in our faces. God help us.
The NRA and the Gun lobby have also created a bloody mess in America. Like the Aryan Brotherhood, they are a bunch of white men on the extreme side revolutionary politics. They want to over throw the government with armed forces. Anyone, like gov John Hickenlooper or Senator Mark Udall who think this fight is about hunting permits, are completely blind to the reality of 2nd amendment politics. This fight is about keeping as many guns as possible on the streets in order to over throw the government, fight back at police, bring anarchy to American soil. As the gun nuts say. “It ain’t about hunting or home protection, it’s about fighting big brother, the new world order, the rich, the banks, the Jews, and the blacks.” They are completely crazy and they are winning.
North Korea doesn’t seem to be in a very good mood. Well, we wouldn’t be either if we had North Korea holding war games along our borders and 20 miles off our coast. What is the United States thinking?? Do they think that they can trash North Korea and that they will behave and be intimidated by us? It’s not working.
Just like the Aryan Brotherhood is not intimidated by US law enforcement. They want to deal drugs and they want to be left alone to do their business. North Korea does not feel like being messed with either.
So now what?? Now we need a miracle.

Jann Scott’s Journal is the story and life of Boulder Icon and talk host Jann Scott. He has been in print, on radio and on TV in Boulder since 1989. Some consider him the voice of Boulder’s soul.
John McClane (Bruce Willis) and his estranged son Jack (Jai Courtney) team up to protect a government informant in Moscow, and thwart a major crime in Chernobyl in this sequel from director John Moore (Max Payne, Behind Enemy Lines). Russian politics are in tatters when veteran detective McClane shows up in the nation’s capital, and learns that his son is working undercover to protect Komarov (Sebastian Koch) — a notorious whistleblower who some powerful people would like to see silenced. Protecting Komarov won’t be easy, even for the cop who’s single-handedly defeated small armies of terrorists, and the sharp-shooting son he’s never known. Meanwhile, when the fearless father and son catch wind of a deadly plot unfolding in Chernobyl, they face the fight of their lives in one of the most hostile landscapes known to man.
“Watching a campaign when the country is this polarized is something,” said Walsh who will speak at Flagler College on Oct. 9 as part of the 2012 Forums on Government and Public Policy lecture series.
“We’ve been polarized as a nation for quite a long time but the hardening of the sides seems to be even greater,” said Walsh, whose lecture topic is “Election 2012: Continuity or Change?” “The new normal of American politics is stalemate, gridlock and no compromise.”
Walsh is no stranger to American politics. He joined the U.S. News & World Report in 1984 as a congressional correspondent and has covered the presidency, presidential campaigns and national politics since 1986. He is also the author of “The Presidency” column and writer of a daily blog called “Ken Walsh’s Washington” at usnews.com.
In 2012, Walsh believes Obama’s platform of looking towards the future will be a bit tougher to swallow than it was in 2008.
“Obama took the approach of hope and change in 2008 but that turned out to be much more difficult than he expected,” said Walsh. “In 2012, people seem much more cynical and I believe turnout will be much less than 2008 so it will be interesting to see what happens.”
All forums take place at Lewis Auditorium at Flagler College, 14 Granada St., at 7 p.m. Forums are free and open to the public thanks to the generosity of speakers who donate their time in support of the series. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign language interpreters are provided. Call (904) 819-6400 for more information.

“Hotshots” looks at a movie!
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is one of those movies with a title that gives away the whole story.
On the other hand, some people might be so intrigued by the title that they just have to go see the movie anyway.
Spoiler Alert! The story is about the 16th president of the United States, and the premise is that he hunted vampires as a secret passion.
Early in the movie we learn why, and later we learn how, when Lincoln meets a man named Henry Sturgess in a bar and Sturgess says to him, “A man only gets that drunk when he wants to kiss a girl or kill a man. So, which is it?”
You see, Sturgess is a professional vampire hunter, Lincoln wants to kill one particular vampire for personal reasons, and so Sturgess agrees to teach Lincoln how to kill vampires, but for a price.
Because Lincoln had been a rail-splitter when he was younger, and as he tells Sturgess that he hasn’t had much luck with shooting, Sturgess helps Lincoln cover the blade of his ax with silver, which has to do with the lore of killing vampires in this movie, and the ax will help Lincoln in his quest in more ways than one.
Sturgess also tells Lincoln that he can have no family or friends as long as he is a vampire hunter, but of course Lincoln acquires both.
We see Lincoln meet, woo, and wed Mary Todd, we see him debate Stephen Douglas when he rises in politics, and we also see him enter the White House when he becomes president, even though each and every night, he goes out hunting vampires.
Now, there are many scenes and shots that were designed specifically to be seen in 3-D, and some–if not all–of them are just plain ridiculous.
And then comes the Civil War, and we learn that the vampires in the country are siding with the Rebels, because they want a nation of their own, which puts a different perspective on the battle scenes, doesn’t it?
Well, we all know how that turned out anyway, but you might be interested in the end of the movie, which puts a whole new perspective on what might be going on today.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is still just a ridiculous concept.

“Excellent Portrayal of Dirty Politics”
“Hotshots” looks at a movie!
The Ides of March is one of the best movies of the year, but one of the most difficult to enjoy, one of the most rewarding, but also one of the most frustrating, and one that should be seen by everyone who follows politics, but is also a handbook for what not to do in politics.
And expect to hear its name often at the Academy Awards ceremony in 2012.
Now, about the title. To the person who wrote “WTF the title? It doesn’t even take place in March,” I say, “Google it, Dude.” It is a famous expression from a famous play by a very famous author.
George Clooney produced, co-wrote, and directed the movie. He also stars as Gov. Mike Morris, who is campaigning for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States.
The action takes place in Ohio, where the Democratic primary election is coming up, and we are told, “As goes Ohio, so goes the nation.”
Ryan Gosling plays Stephen Myers, Gov. Morris’s press secretary; Philip Seymour Hoffman plays his campaign manager; Paul Giamatti plays the campaign manager for the Democratic rival running against Gov. Morris; Evan Rachel Wood plays an intern working for Gov. Morris’s campaign; and Marisa Tomei plays a reporter for The New York Times.
Stephen is very good at his job and is told that all the reporters love him, even the ones who hate him. However, when the rival’s campaign manager arranges a secret meeting with Stephen, tells him that Stephen is working for the wrong man, and offers to hire Stephen to come work for him, a chain of events are set in motion that will change Stephen’s idealistic views of Gov. Morris.
And then when Stephen learns a secret about Gov. Morris that could damage his campaign severely and perhaps even ruin the governor, Stephen has to battle his own idealistic views, because he can use that information either to further his own career or to damage the governor’s reputation.
We are told that loyalty is the only thing valued in politics and the only thing that can be counted on. We are also told that if you stay in the political business long enough, you become jaded and bitter.
The Ides of March can do the same and is an excellent portrayal of dirty politics.
