Fascist Anti-Marijuana Crackdown in Santa Rosa – PERSONAL GARDENS RAIDED

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 26, 2012 by highboldtage

Dozens of combat-clad police officers, deputies and federal agents swarmed a southwest Santa Rosa neighborhood Wednesday morning in the region’s largest-ever operation against residential marijuana gardens.

“A team of 150 law enforcement officers raided 32 homes on Moorland Avenue, Eddy Drive, Barbara Drive and Neville Way, immediately south of the Corby Auto Mall.

Following the initial raid, officers carrying search warrants went into yards and confiscated a large amount of marijuana plants. Residents, many of them handcuffed, sat in front yards and watched as the pot was piled in great heaps.

The raids began about 9 a.m. when FBI agents in full military gear ordered residents to leave their homes, then rushed into the residences, most of them modest multi-plex units. The neighborhood was punctuated by the sounds of exploding flash grenades at several homes.

The FBI assault team, its large military-type truck and a big-wheeled SWAT vehicle had left the neighborhood, but people still sat handcuffed in their front yards, as a woman who asked not to be identified surveyed the scene from the hood of a parked car.

As pot piles grew in the street, groups of neighbors gathered to watch. Several called the officers’ tactics “overkill” and questioned the value of ripping out the gardens.

“It’s a big bunch of crap,” said one neighbor Lora Wilson. “How much taxpayer money did we just waste doing this?”

The staging ground for the operation was the parking lot of the Santa Rosa’s Veterans Memorial Building. At about 9 a.m., a long line of FBI and sheriff’s SUVs, trucks, patrol cars and large assault vehicles snaked out of the parking lot and onto Highway 12, then southbound 101.

Onlookers said an FBI team dressed in fatigues and helmets and carrying an assortment of battering rams, shields, ladders and weapons first entered a residence on Moorland Avenue at Barbara Drive.

That team then moved to several homes on Barbara Drive. Soon, handcuffed and guarded residents sat in front yards up and down Barbara Drive and the adjoining streets.”

Jeb Bush Advocates for States Rights – To Go Bankrupt

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on January 27, 2011 by highboldtage

Of course he wants to use bankruptcy to cancel state employee contracts and benefits, but leave all the bondholders protected.

States may have to go bankrupt, but why shouldn’t the bondholders take a haircut along with everyone else?  BTW Newt Gingrich is on board for this tool.   Jeb Bush, Newt Gingrich, bootlickers to the rich.

These two clowns (I thought Jeb was the smart one in the family, but maybe not!)  have to twist themselves into logical pretzels to take the position that a FEDERAL JUDGE should overrule a state government (after all these Republicans are always talking about Big Government and activist judges) but it is clear that Republicans love BIG GOVERNMENT as long as big government SERVES THE RICH.

States Rights and Tenther Movements Pick Up Steam

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on March 17, 2010 by highboldtage

“National monuments and medical marijuana, of all things, play a role as well.

Mr. Herrod in Utah said that after an internal memorandum from the United States Department of the Interior was made public last month, discussing sites around the country potentially suitable for federal protection as national monuments — including two sites in Utah — support for all kinds of statements against federal authority gained steam.

And at the Tenth Amendment Center, the group’s founder, Michael Boldin, said he thought states that had bucked federal authority over the last decade by legalizing medical marijuana, even as federal law held all marijuana use and possession to be illegal, had set the template in some ways for the effort now. And those states, Mr. Boldin said, were essentially validated in their efforts last fall when the Justice Department said it would no longer make medical marijuana a priority in the states were it was legal. Nullification, he said, was shown to work.”
