San Diego Police Officer Shot, Suspect Dead

san-diego-shooting

Michelle Moons reports: Shots fired at approximately 8:25 a.m. Sunday morning that sent one San Diego Police Officer to the hospital were met with responding shots fired at the shooting suspect leaving the man dead at the scene.

SDPD officers originally attempted to stop a gray Jeep traveling an estimated 90 miles per hour on Interstate 805 around 7:40 a.m. The vehicle evaded authorities in the chase that ensued, but was later spotted–abandoned. A search of vehicle license records yielded the possibility that the SUV had been used in multiple shootings in the city within the several weeks prior.

A male suspect spotted near the abandoned vehicle ran when officers attempted to approach him. It was then that the suspect produced a gun and fired at the officers, hitting a female officer in the upper tors,o according to a Sunday afternoon statement from the San Diego Police Department.

Border Meltdown: Obama Delivers 290,000 Illegals To U.S. Homes

border-meltdown3

For The Daily Caller, Neil Munro writes: The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article.

A second New York Times article reports revealed that officials have caught an additional 240,000 Central American migrants since April, and are transporting many of them to their destinations throughout the United States.

border-meltdown5The deluge of 290,000 illegals — so far — are exploiting legal loopholes that allow them to get temporary permits to stay in the United States.

Experts say that President Barack Obama’s administration has failed to close the loopholes and is unlikely to deport more than a small percentage of the illegals, despite the high unemployment rates among American Latino, African-American and white youths, and the strapped budgets of many cities and towns.

The president’s policy has caused protests by frightened citizens in towns such as Murrieta. But Obama’s allies — such as La Raza, an ethnic lobby for Latinos — are eager to escalate the conflict and to paint the protestors as racists. Those protests may escalate before the November elections. Read the rest of this entry »

Want Fewer Guns on California Streets? Open Carry May Be the Answer

Very few gun owners want to carry openly displayed guns. The police hassle you, stores refuse to serve you and some people won't talk to you. Criminals might even target you, seeking to steal your expensive sidearm. (Jerome Favre / Bloomberg / February 22, 2014)

Letting people tote their guns around on their hips sounds dangerous. But think again.

Adam Winkler  writes:  What’s the best way to minimize the number of guns on California’s streets? That’s the question confronting gun control supporters after this month’s ruling by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals striking down San Diego’s restrictions on carrying handguns in public. That case was brought by gun owners who applied for but were denied permits to carry concealed weapons.

[Adam Winkler is a professor of law at UCLA School of Law and the author of “Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America”. It’s available at Amazon]

San Diego will undoubtedly appeal the decision in the hope of saving its restrictive policy for awarding concealed carry permits. Lawmakers who support gun control might want to consider another option: Rewrite state law to allow people to carry guns openly.

For many in the gun control community, that will seem like a crazy idea. State law bans ordinary civilians from carrying openly displayed firearms. And gun control advocates don’t want to see more gun enthusiasts showing up at Starbucks or the local movie theater with guns hanging on their hips like Gary Cooper in “High Noon.”

Yet if they don’t want too many guns in public, open carry may be the answer.

FBI Seeks ‘Loverspy’ Hacker Who Helped Catch Cheating Partners

WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s not just the federal government intercepting your communications. It could be a nosy relative or jealous partner.

Among the five people added this week to the FBI’s list of “most wanted” cybercriminals is a former San Diego college student who developed an $89 program called “Loverspy” or “Email PI.” Sold online from his apartment, the program was advertised as a way to “catch a cheating lover” by sending the person an electronic greeting card that, if opened, would install malicious software to capture emails and instant messages, even spy on someone using the victim’s own webcam.

Liberalism’s War on Women

Filner pleaded guilty to three counts and will not serve any time in prison. Instead he’ll spend three months at home, receive some counseling and three years on probation.

Filner pleaded guilty to three counts and will not serve any time in prison. Instead he’ll spend three months at home, receive some counseling and three years on probation. He won’t go into California’s sex offender database.

Daniel Greenfield writes:  As Bob Filner, San Diego’s former progressive mayor, pleads guilty to charges stemming from his attacks on women, his essay, “Why I am Pro-Choicestill decorates the website of Planned Parenthood.

A year ago, Filner had appeared at a Planned Parenthood rally while running for mayor of California’s second largest city to accuse his opponent of being part of the ‘war on women’.

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund had sent out a letter saying that “for twenty years, Bob Filner has defended women”. At the rally, attendees were told that he had spent “the last twenty years protecting our rights and the rights of women everywhere.”

But while Filner was protecting women, no one was protecting women from Filner. Filner’s behavior was well known, but not commented on. The California Democratic Party maintained its red wall of silence around the son of a Communist, a Freedom Rider and member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus because he was one of their own.

Even Filner’s disgrace hasn’t changed that. Filner pleaded guilty to three counts and will not serve any time in prison. Instead he’ll spend three months at home, receive some counseling and three years on probation.

He won’t go into California’s 100,000 strong sex offender database; even though if there’s anyone in the entire state who belongs there, it’s him. Filner probably deserves to join the 1 in 375 adults in California on that list more than Donald Honan who was only convicted of indecent exposure. Read the rest of this entry »


WHITE HOUSE DOWN: President Obama’s Shameful Death-Benefit Theater

Depraved? Who you callin' depraved! Expect a visit from the I.R.S., motherfucker

Shameful? Depraved? Who you callin’ depraved? Expect a visit from the I.R.S., motherfucker…

The Obama administration insisted Tuesday it had no choice but to withhold death benefits to relatives of 1st Lt. Jennifer Moreno, a 25-year-old soldier born and raised in San Diego, and four other soldiers killed since the partial government shutdown began Oct. 1.

This is ridiculous and perverse. President Barack Obama has used an expansive — and some legal scholars believe extreme — interpretation of his powers to unilaterally rewrite key provisions of the No Child Left Behind law, the sweeping 2002 measure that drastically reshaped federal education policies. In similar fashion, the president has unilaterally rewritten key provisions of the Affordable Care Act, his sweeping 2010 measure that is drastically reshaping federal public health policies. His administration has also essentially rewritten federal laws governing illegal immigration and penalties for drug possession.

Just this month, the federal government has authorized the spending of billions of dollars since the partial shutdown began without explicit congressional approval. Contrary to the Obama administration’s representations, there are not hard, definitive rules governing how the executive branch must act during these budget fights. That is reflected in the amazingly arbitrary ways that the federal government has shuttered some services and agencies but not others — often with the barely hidden goal of making people suffer to build pressure on House Republicans to give in to the White House. For one of hundreds of examples, the Armed Forces Network serving U.S. military personnel abroad still shows news — but it has stopped showing NFL games, blaming the shutdown.

This is obnoxious enough. In denying death benefits to the relatives of fallen U.S. soldiers, however, the Obama administration has broken new ground in its budget theater. This decision is accurately described as depraved.

Man accused of threatening Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard arrested

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii

A former Hawaii resident is under arrest in San Diego, accused of threatening to kill Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.

Aniruddha Sherbow was arrested in Tijuana Mexico Wednesday and brought to San Diego. The 43 year old wrote a letter to the FBI and also included the media. The text is vulgar and racist at times.

“We all have our limits, and I have reached mine. At this point, if you stuck Tulsi’s head in front of me, I’d have it off in two seconds flat,” wrote Sherbow, in the email.

Our Postmodern Angst

In our unheroic age, victimhood has replaced valiant struggle.

By  Victor Davis Hanson

In the globally connected and affluent world of the 21st century, we thankfully have evolved a long way from the elemental poverty, hunger, and ethnic, religious, and racial hatred that were mostly the norm of the world until the last century.

Yet who would know of such progress — and the great sacrifices made to achieve it — from the howls of our postmodern oppressed? In fact, the better life has become, the more victimized modern affluent Westerners seem to act.
