A labor day special : For the freedom of America

If you want to turn the course of this ship, and change the outcome of the game, the chance is coming in your near future. Short of civil war there is no other course of action that can succeed in over turning tyranny other than widespread strikes and civil disobedience. As noted in the previous article, a lot of people (Hand picked by the media of course) were very unhappy with the sick out that shut the ferry Washington down. That is fine. In this context, they are the enemy and the more unhappy they are, the better. Forget polls, forget COIN, forget all the fodder that you have been fed by the media. COIN was an unmitigated disaster that resulted in an overwhelming number of cowards and snitches that we won the ” Hearts and minds” of. People that you bribe are never truly on your side and will turn on you at first chance. They are the people who balance on the top of wall waiting to jump off when they are sure which side is winning. Their help is neither needed nor wanted. Anything that has to with polling is so poisoned by the propagandists that it only serves as a measure of what they are currently peddling. No one outside of their circle of true believers actually buys what they are selling anyway. Polls to influence how and who you vote for have now become rank propaganda only to support the media’s demented agenda. For that fact, voting is over, or at least in the context that we are familiar with. We have no recourse for change other than what we do ourselves and that very action will make many people and entities unhappy. But are we supposed to care? Are we supposed to cry because those who uphold the policies of tyranny are uncomfortable? During the Czech “Velvet revolution” of 1989, did the protesters care if all of those coddled by the ruling communist party were distressed by their actions? Well, not so much; They had a specific goal in mind to achieve and they were stopping at nothing . If we want to achieve anything then we need to stand up and actually do something. So , it makes a lot of people angry? Good, people in their comfort zone don’t want change, they want the status quo. They want to stay belly up to the trough and not have to think about anything. Shackle them to that very same trough and chain their hands and they will still be just as happy as long as they can feed . You will notice that every time a Govt. has uncertainty in its future it begins to create shortages; Power, milk, and toilet paper. Nothing too drastic that will turn people out, but just enough to create a panic that will keep those trough feeders uneasy and hoping for Govt. intervention. That is how you get attention to your cause. Take people out of their comfort zone and they will notice. Nationwide, local school board members are resigning En Masse. And why? Because people are standing up, showing up and holding them to account for what they do. They are certainly not happy, but they have noticed you and with that came a result. Look what BLM managed to accomplish in a short time. They effected huge amounts of change simply because they were visible, willing to show up and took people out of their comfort zone. Remember this; We outnumber them by the tens of millions. If we make a stand we will not need the media or anyone else to make our case. We collectively, need to shut this country down. What is starting to happen with the school boards needs to happen nationwide. Don’t like what they are doing? Show up, stand up and don’t shut up. We need to organize action and on a scale not seen before in this country. City meetings, board meetings and everything in between need to hear your displeasure and know that they are not immune just because they were elected to some petty office . But that is just the beginning; That displeasure needs to be amplified and broadcast countrywide for all to hear. We need to begin to organize general strikes that will affect everyone involved. We are after all ,the workers for the most part . We are the small business owners, the truckers, the electricians and most other tradesmen. We are proud Americans who have worked hard all of our lives to achieve and are now watching that dream be stolen. We need to come to a point where we can say ” Nothing in, nothing out”. Like BLM on steroids we can come to every neighborhood in the nation. With BLM you only had to worry if there was a fire on your block. We can bring a fire, figuratively, to every block in the country. Nothing in, nothing out. No fuel trucks, no food trucks, no road crews, no bus lines. Do you want to affect change or do you want to complain? The choice is yours. I am asking that you be willing to stand shoulder to shoulder with your brethren that love freedom and, make something happen. Don’t ask for it, make it happen. One voice at a time, one man at a time until we are a collective roar that cannot be ignored. The time for waving funny signs and telling them that we will get them at the next election is over; The time for action is here.

It’s the Law!!!

Militias headed to Oregon to prevent arrest of ranchers


Statement by Oregon Farm Bureau President Barry Bushue on sentencing of Steve and Dwight Hammond:

“Today two Oregon ranchers were sentenced to five years in federal prison under terrorism statutes for setting preventative fires on their own land. We are gravely disappointed at this outcome.

“Elderly Harney County rancher Dwight Hammond and his son, Steven, a former OFB Board member and Harney County Farm Bureau president, have already served time in federal prison for their mistakes and paid their debt to society for the less-than-140 acres of BLM land that was accidentally impacted by the fires.

“This is an example of gross government overreach, and the public should be outraged.”

They were sentenced in October and now the Feds are coming to arrest them

 Here is a more slanted piece but it contains the info on the militias

Hillary Clinton channels Chairman Mao: Disturbing poster on wall of campaign office

No this is not a photo shop. This worthless piece of human excrement actually thinks that it is appropriate to model a poster after the communist Chinese leader who was responsible for the deaths of 70 million Chinese.

Not only that, but she thinks that it is appropriate to release the photo to the public

This poster is on the wall of her campaign headquarters in plain sight

Google images of Mao posters and see what pops up

That is definitely what she is imitating

Notice the Commie clothes?

I hate commies with a passion

I will not abide them

Not for 1 minute

Go Hillary!

Tyler Truitt, Huntsville alabama, July 29, plan to stand

I have been very busy lately and have not been able to do anything more that very rudimentary research on Mr. Truitt.

But as it stands, it would appear that I will be making an appearance in Huntsville. I just want to make sure that he is a stand up type of guy before fully committing to the cause.

Any info one way or the other would be appreciated.

Are you willing to get your hands dirty?

“A week ago we FINALLY told them ENOUGH! Now. Will our words be shallow? Will we still expect our so called representatives to take care of it for us as we have in the past? Or are we going to get our hands dirty?”

The above is a comment from a reader. She makes a good point; what are we going to do if the Republicans sell us down the river ? Is it time to lay down and give up, or is it time to take a stand.

This is a fight after all and one with high stakes. Our very way of life is in the balance and it is going to be up to us to throw it one way or the other. If this is politics as usual then we had better be prepared to stand up to defend what we believe in ourselves.

The time for couched rhetoric and posturing will have passed. They are hell bent on destroying our culture, our freedoms and in the end our very republic. The time may well be coming soon, when it is time to take the gloves off and get our hands dirty.

Elections have consequences…….

America faces most dangerous two years in 150 years

“Already, he has demonstrated again and again that he has no regard for the constitution or the legitimacy of laws when they do not suit his agenda. He flaunts his disregard for the constitutional process, dismisses laws he doesn’t like and rewrites others.

He mocks the powers of Congress. The Supreme Court has slapped him down more than any president in recent times. All of this as he tells us he is an expert on constitutional law.

Now come his very explicit threats to pass more illegal and unconstitutional presidential edicts to grant amnesty to illegal aliens already in the United States. This, in turn, will issue invitations for millions more illegals to come streaming across the border.

It will not end at immigration. Unchecked power is addictive.

Disowned by Democrats and made to feel irrelevant in this election, President Obama’s enormous and unjustified ego is deeply wounded. He is frustrated and feels caged, cornered. This is when people like him are most dangerous.”

Like a cornered rat. Crush it.

This is what my wife wants

I love her.

President Obama lets slip his scheme for a permanent majority


Think the Republicans are the answer? Not for a minute, all they are concerned with is remaining in the seat of power.They made their position clear in the primaries by knocking out any of the constitutionally concerned candidates.

Instead of having liberty minded men in the seats of power, we will have guys like Thad Cochran voting our destiny for us.

What we are witnessing are the last convulsing gasps of our political system and possibly our culture. I believe that within our time and sooner rather than later, that we will be faced with the choice to either kneel or resist.

Hope and change is coming; It is not finished yet by a long sight. The change will be something that we as a society will abhor, but will be forced by the propaganda machine of the ruling elite to accept.

Or not.

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

John F. Kennedy

Men and Women in America are preparing for the inevitable even if we aren’t sure precisely what that will be.

“There are… preparations in place friends. The world is in an uproar and America is the nexus. We’re at what I like to call a “Node of History” – it’s one of those places in “time” where the time stream travels to a tightly, narrowed tube and events that occur change the face of the planet for ever.

World War I and II each had these “nodes” and you can all see that for yourselves if you study history. Romes rise and fall contained several such nodes. The rise of the United States, Soviet Union and Communist China had these “nodes”.

We’re approaching a point – though I can’t personally predict the exact events at this time – where the “narrowing time stream” (and this is just a phrase I use to describe my thinking, not the reality) will have so many interconnecting events occurring that one or two of them will boil to the top and become “The Event of Change”.

Men and Women in America are preparing for the inevitable even if we aren’t sure precisely what that will be.

Our preaching about “Being Prepared” is paying off. Finally.”

Comment from a reader that sums it up perfectly. Something is in the air and everybody knows it. It is now beginning to permeate our society from zombie apocalypses to white house down. Be prepared and be hard, there are no easy choices coming.

Liberia: Ebola kills 8 soldiers, barracks deserted

“Don’t worry it isn’t easy to spread. Trust me, I am from the Govt. and here to help.”
If Americans start dying we need to rain fire, death and hell on those responsible. Have as much mercy as the virus itself.

“At least eight soldiers, among them two commissioned officers and two medical staff, have reportedly lost their lives to the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD), the Daily Observer has reliably learnt.

Those victimized by the EVD have been identified as, Private (PVT) Calvin Sackie, Corporals (Cpls) Florson Louise, Fanbiman Samuel, and Private First Class (Pfc) Anthony Sheriff.

Others are Sergeant (Sgt) Kromah, who was assigned as the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) medic and another medic from the Ministry of National Defense (MOD) identified as Annitta Sackie.

The two commissioned officers victimized by the EVD were up to press time not named.

The deceased, according to our source, contracted Ebola recently at the Edward Binyan Kesseley (EBK) Barracks when a lady unsuspected of carrying the disease, visited one of the victims, Cpl Floson Louise.

The ‘concubine’ who visited the late soldier has also been victimized by the disease. She is yet to be identified.

“When she slept at the EBK, it was thereafter the soldiers contracted the disease, and could not survive despite “intensive treatment” at the various Ebola Treatment Units in Monrovia,” our source disclosed.

This latest setback among the rank and file of the already sparse number of soldiers has reportedly created panic among them, to the extent that some of them have begun to desert the various barracks across the country.

Based on this information, the Daily Observer yesterday contacted Defense Assistant Minister for Public Affairs, David K. Dahn, who neither confirmed nor denied the report.

He, however, told this newspaper via mobile phone, “The whole West Africa is being threatened by Ebola, of which the AFL is no exception, because they are among other Liberians being afflicted by the EVD.”

He disclosed that the military is carrying out some measures at its barracks to decongest the soldiers. “This is why the barracks have become so quiet since the Ebola outbreak in the country.”

The latest deaths of the soldiers sadly add to several Para-military and other security personnel, including officers of the Liberian National Police (LNP), that have died. Others, including close family members, had been quarantined and subsequently released, having completed their 21 days isolation.

Mesh networking; Connecting without cell or wi-fi

“In most modern networks, links and nodes are interconnected (both logically and physically) in either a star arrangement (with each node connected directly to a central switch, hub or server) or a bus configuration (with each node attached to a central line that is connected to a central switching component). Both of these configurations are well understood, inexpensive and generally reliable, but one broken link in either setup can isolate a node, cutting it off from the network.

A newer arrangement, mesh networking, connects each node to at least two other nodes (and potentially to each and every other network node, an arrangement referred to as “fully connected”). This involves more cabling (or more wireless devices) and greater overhead, but it allows the network to heal itself automatically when a break occurs, so there’s no interruption of service to any node.

A mesh network is a LAN (usually wireless) where each node is connected to many others, configured to allow connections to be rerouted around broken or blocked paths, with the signal hopping from node to node until it reaches its destination. Mesh networks are self-healing and very reliable.”

Important information on MRAPS.. Updated

Make sure that you read it all and read it CAREFULLY. I know that you are all smart kids. TEMPIS FUGIT

“Now that the military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan is drawing to a close, the services that used Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles — MRAPs — are declaring them surplus. Many of these vehicles are being picked up by local law enforcement agencies to serve as tactical personnel carriers through their state’s 1033 program. That is not always such a great idea.

The first issue to overcome is one of public image. There is no shortage of people in the United States who are vocal about how the police are becoming militarized, possibly (according to some, probably) to facilitate disarming the citizenry and bringing about the New World Order. Painting your agency’s livery on the side of a truck that has been in the newspapers carrying soldiers and Marines for the past 10 years is fuel for these folks’ fires.

The police department in the town where I grew up is getting considerable flak for their new acquisition, even though they badly needed a new tactical vehicle.

Access and Egress
Less obvious are the safety hazards associated with the vehicles themselves. After a conversation with a career Army officer familiar with the issue, I was directed to Bobby Russell, the civilian site lead for MRAP University at the Red River Army Depot near Texarkana (Texas). MRAP University provides training for MRAP vehicle military crews, drivers and maintainers.

There are two models of MRAP offered to public safety agencies: the MaxxPro and the Caiman. The Maxx Pro has a drop-down tailgate, while on the Caiman, the rear door opens sideways. In a rollover situation, particularly one where part of the vehicle is submerged, or on its top, the door operation limits the places anyone can get out.

Crews looking to deploy in MRAPs have to undergo egress training, and according to one experienced source, “It’s not fun.”

“Most of the front doors are air-assisted,” Russell told me. “Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. When entering an MRAP, if a crewman reaches up to the door handle to pull himself up, it can and will close the door on them.”

Malfunctions are even more likely if the vehicle has suffered a mishap and the engine is no longer running. If there is no air pressure, the functions are limited.

MRAP doors are also fitted with “combat locks” designed to keep the enemy from getting up close and personal with the crew. If these locks are engaged, it will be very difficult for rescue personnel to gain access to the interior of the vehicle.

MRAP University has one rollover simulator, an MRAP shell that can be rotated at will by the simulator operator. These simulators aren’t widely available, and local public safety agencies aren’t likely to have access to them.

There is a reason that rollovers are a special concern. Of 66 MRAP accidents overseas between November 2007 and June 2008, 40 were rollovers caused by rough roads, road shoulders collapsing, bridge failures or bad driving. These vehicles have a high center of gravity, and taking them on an incline of 30 degrees or more can cause them to topple.

The crew member in the top turret is at greatest risk in a rollover. While just taking personnel out of the turret is an option, it invites a new hazard. Visibility from inside the vehicles is very poor, and the person manning the turret often has to advise the driver via the vehicle’s intercom about obstructions to the side or rear.

The turret itself could be a problem in an urban environment. The turret is almost ten feet off the ground, and a rider’s body adds to that height. Troops manning turrets were occasionally clotheslined by utility cables or booby traps while crossing the terrain they were navigating.

The vehicles are extremely heavy for their size. The Caiman weighs 24 tons unloaded; the MaxxPro over 18 tons. Personnel and equipment add to that load. Small bridges have collapsed under the weight of MRAPs. Would the bridges in your community be up to the challenge?

Most of the MRAPs are street legal as delivered, but don’t count on taking them on any regional excursions unless you have a trailer to transport it. The vehicles get around 6 mpg, and hold between 50 and 80 gallons of fuel. The trucks run on diesel and/or JP8 fuel.

Although they’ll have to develop some workarounds, maintenance can be performed by most vehicle shops equipped to service trucks and heavy equipment. Finding a technician experienced in MRAPs could be a challenge, but Russell suggested contacting the National Guard unit closest to the vehicle’s home. Many guardsmen were deployed in MRAPs and were trained in their use and maintenance.

Although he might prefer otherwise, Russell can’t provide much assistance in training or maintenance for MRAPs. The Army regards MRAPs as legacy equipment, and MRAP University will soon shut down.” Police one: The hidden hazards of MRAPS

Got Ebola?

“These federal powers comprise a set of rules that gives CDC sweeping authority to hold and isolate Americans in a public health emergency. These authorities haven’t been fully updated in decades. They’ve only been amended in piecemeal fashion to deal with modern threats like SARS and MERS. In advance of what may be a very public test of these powers, the collected scheme deserves closer scrutiny.

Updated quarantine regulations were first proposed in 2005 during the Bush Administration amid fears of pandemic flu. The regulations spelled out in detail how CDC would exercise its sweeping powers to involuntarily confine sick individuals and those believed to be exposed to certain deadly and contagious diseases. The rules also focused efforts on quarantine at airports. Among other things, it held airlines responsible for keeping records to help health officials track down people coming off flights, in the event they would need to be located later for quarantine.

The set of regulations also included a new “provisional quarantine” rule that would have allowed CDC to detain people involuntarily for up to three days, with no mechanism for appeal. CDC had to believe a person was infected with certain pathogens. Among the diseases included were pandemic flu, infectious tuberculosis, plague, cholera, SARS, diphtheria, and viral hemorrhagic fevers such as Ebola.

The regulations also defined “ill person” to include anyone with the signs or symptoms commonly associated with the diseases in question. This gave CDC more flexibility in deciding whom to quarantine by capturing a broader and earlier range of symptoms as the basis for holding an individual. It allowed for greater exercise of discretion public health officials and those staffing quarantine stations.”

Donations for my lovely ladies

I would like to thank all who have donated to our cause and lessened our financial burden. I did not put it out as a III to III request because that is limited to emergencies and I believe that others have more dire need than I do. The cause of freedom is not cheap and I have already spent a whole bunch to support it. Between trips to DC, supporting liberty minded causes, candidates and other patriots I have rung up quite a tab. Don’t get me wrong, I am not whining about it . It is money willingly and gladly spent.I didn’t have to spend any of it. I could have sat back on my hands and just watched and not cared, but I am not that guy. I am certain that I am going to spend even more in the future, but as we all know, freedom isn’t free. In the end I am willing to give all for the cause and that really makes the money I spend nothing more than green paper. Again a hearty thanks to all of those who have coughed up hard earned dollars to help with the fight. I know that things really suck right now (Regardless of what the media says) and money is not easy to come by. UPDATE: When the cops searched the truck the only things that they took were Brian’s badge (He is former LEO) and legally carried handgun. They took it to “Investigate it” (Make sure it was legal?) and locked it up as evidence. He was not there when the search took place and was told that the gun was not part of the obstruction case and he could pick it up whenever. This morning Stacy called the Pinellas county states attorney to make arrangements to pick the gun up and was told that it was now part of the case against her. Scumbags.


Her hair has been shorn
Her face cut and bruised
Her flowing gown torn
The beauty once in her eyes
Drone strikes
Warrant less searches
Roadblocks and pat downs
Eaves dropping
Secret eyes and ears
Always listening
Always watching
Be careful what you do
Or they may come after you
Swat teams and armored cars
Men clad in black
Weapons at the ready
Waiting to attack
They have her now
Cold shackles hold her hands
Her breath is low and shallow
Seems that death
Is now at hand

“We will pry your gun from your cold, dead, fingers” Military leader calls for citizen disarmament

Douchebag extrodinaire Lt Col. Robert Bateman calls for the disarmarment of American citizens in a recent Esquire opinion piece. In the article, linked above, he uses language that belies what he is actually saying. The article is littered with references to violence and his disdain for the law.   “My entire adult life has been dedicated to the deliberate management of violence. There are no two ways around that fact. My job, at the end of the day, is about killing. I orchestrate violence.” ” I am not proud of that fact. Indeed, I am often torn-up by the realization that not only is this my job, but that I am really good at my job.”    He ends his first statement with “My job, at the end of the day is about killing”.  At the beginning of the second statement he attempts to mitigate the implications of his first statement but then negates that with ” I am really good at my job”.   Below is the actual plan that he lays out.  Notice the language sprinkled through out  it that thinly veneers his disdain for the citizenry. ” you cannot bring down a defenseless deer in under five rounds, then you have no fking reason to be holding a killing tool in the first place.”  “That will piss off some cops, since they really need this money. But you know what they need more? Less violence and death”   ” will be bought out by the United States of America, for our own damned good. “.      Within his plan he uses the mother of all violent phrases   “We will pry your gun from your cold, dead, fingers.”  After using violent phraseology he then attempts to mitigate the language by adding “That is because I am willing to wait until you die, hopefully of natural causes”.   That is like looking someone in the eye and telling them that you are going to send them to their grave, after they are dead of course. The cat is out of the bag when you make the first statement and your true intent is being shown.      I think that the good Col. has shown cleary through his language what his true intent is. He repeatedly demonstrates that he thinks his view is superior to that of the court and he is willing to use violence to achieve his ends. He just can’t say it at the moment… Not yet anyway. A lot of people have commented on the piece that he wrote and “Traitor” and “Oathbreaker” are recurring themes, but I think it goes farther than that; I believe that he is a clear and present danger.   

1. The only guns permitted will be the following:

  • a. Smoothbore or Rifled muzzle-loading blackpowder muskets. No 7-11 in history has ever been held up with one of these.
  • b. Double-barrel breech-loading shotguns. Hunting with these is valid.
  • c. Bolt-action rifles with a magazine capacity no greater than five rounds. Like I said, hunting is valid. But if you cannot bring down a defenseless deer in under five rounds, then you have no fking reason to be holding a killing tool in the first place.

2. We will pry your gun from your cold, dead, fingers. That is because I am willing to wait until you die, hopefully of natural causes. Guns, except for the three approved categories, cannot be inherited. When you die your weapons must be turned into the local police department, which will then destroy them. (Weapons of historical significance will be de-milled, but may be preserved.)

3. Police departments are no longer allowed to sell or auction weapons used in crimes after the cases have been closed. (That will piss off some cops, since they really need this money. But you know what they need more? Less violence and death. By continuing the process of weapon recirculation, they are only making their jobs — or the jobs of some other cops — harder.)

4. We will submit a new tax on ammunition. In the first two years it will be 400 percent of the current retail cost of that type of ammunition. (Exemptions for the ammo used by the approved weapons.) Thereafter it will increase by 20 percent per year.

5. We will initiate a nationwide “buy-back” program, effective immediately, with the payouts coming from the DoD budget. This buy-back program will start purchasing weapons at 200 percent of their face value the first year, 150 percent the second year, 100 percent the third year. Thereafter there will be a 10 year pause, at which point the guns can be sold to the government at 10 percent of their value for the next 50 years.

6. The major gun manufactures of the United States, less those who create weapons for the federal government and the armed forces, will be bought out by the United States of America, for our own damned good.

Natural law vs. the legal system

I recently responded to an article entitled “Is the ACA legal?”. I know that my response sounds a little bitchy, but it wasn’t intended. It is just one of those things that can happen on a Wednesday morning. It wasn’t that his question irritated me, it is just irritation at the whole situation in general. I am a little lazy this morn also, so instead of starting fresh I have pasted the response below and will attempt to expound on the idea.

“Using the word legal is a joke.(No offense intended) When the laws of a nation are subverted there are many things that are “Legal”. If they ban guns or free speech and it is upheld by the SCOTUS it becomes “Legal” even while being illegitimate. If Madison’s “Tyranny of the majority” comes to fruition then the will imposed on the minority will be “Legal”. According to the ruling that robert’s (Sic) made congress can tax us for anything as a type of penalty. We can be required to buy a car or a toaster or any other nonsense and be taxed if we don’t. Stimulus anyone? Our rights and freedoms are not granted by legality and when illegitimate laws are passed they subvert natural law.”

The whole concept of natural law is bound up in the idea that some things are inherently right and wrong and are built into our nature, independent of political order, society or nation-state. When legal systems come into a state of conflict with natural law a conundrum is created that will invariably end with some type of contention.    It is often stated that the constitution guarantees our rights but that is a mistaken perception. The constitution only codifies our natural rights and spells them out as a guideline for the government.   As a human I have a right to life. I have the right to defend myself. I have a right to be free. I have the right to speak as I please. I have the right to be unencumbered by tyranny.    The government claims that they are the protector of these rights because they are in the constitution, when in fact they were codified to protect us from the government. The government (SCOTUS) defines daily what my freedoms and rights are by their rulings on the legality of matters that pertain to them. Their rulings though, have no bearing on my actual  natural rights regardless of what they rule.   Thomas Jefferson saw the potential for this abuse after the SCOTUS usurped the power of judicial review ( Ruling on the constitutionality of matters) and wrote in 1820    “You seem … to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so. They have, with others, the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps…. Their power [is] the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control.”     What the end all of this game is that in order to keep my natural rights that were “Endowed” on me, I may have to  become a criminal in the eyes of the law. I have a right to freedom, but in order to insure that right I may become a criminal and be imprisoned.     Is that legal?  In the end I don’t care about the legality of the matter. If you make me a criminal I can only respond as Jesus did when asked if he was the KIng of the Jews “You have said it”.   Take that as you will.
