Phoenix pastor Michael Salman is currently serving a 60 day sentence in a Maricopa County, Arizona jail for violating his probation by holding religious services on his property, which is said to be in violation of zoning and building codes.
Salman, a husband and father of six children, is an ordained pastor at the Church of God in Christ and a founder of Harvest Christian Fellowship. In 2010, Salman was found guilty of nearly 70 Class 1 misdemeanors involving code violations in his home where he held church services, including not having lighted emergency exits, and not having fire doors or sprinklers. He appealed his convictions but the court upheld them.
Congressional investigators probing the Obama administration’s deadly “Fast and Furious” gun-running scheme concluded that senior Justice Department figures and five top officials with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) were responsible for the tragic program, according to the first segment of an official report. All of the ATF figures still work for the agency.
The Central Intelligence Agency’s involvement in drug trafficking is back in the media spotlight after a spokesman for the violence-plagued Mexican state of Chihuahua became the latest high-profile individual to accuse the CIA, which has been linked to narcotics trafficking for decades, of ongoing efforts to “manage the drug trade.” The infamous American spy agency refused to comment.
In a recent interview, Chihuahua state spokesman Guillermo Terrazas Villanueva told Al Jazeera that the CIA and other international “security” outfits "don't fight drug traffickers." Instead, Villanueva argued, they try to control and manage the illegal drug market for their own benefit.
Chicago has as many as 10 murders in a given weekend, putting it on track to have over 500 murders this year, and most of those murders are committed by blacks against blacks as a result of black "victim group" status and political pandering.
James Holmes appears to be a normal, bright, self-effacing individual without evil intents. Looking deeper Holmes is the skilled, deliberate schemer behind the Aurora, Colorado, shootings.
A Forbes article says there's a real threat of U.S. ratification of the UN arms treaty under now-increased pressure to “do something” after the Aurora shootings.
Furthermore, drawing from R. J. Rummel's revealing work, Death by Government, we can conclude that there are worse things than a lone (or supported) shooter. What’s immeasurably worse is when the government itself has unlimited power over its people.
On April 22 of this year a convicted felon, just out of jail, went to an Aurora, Colorado, church and shot and killed a member of the congregation before being killed himself by a congregant carrying a gun. If not for the presence of the armed congregant, many more innocent people could have been killed. On July 20, another gunman opened fire in an Aurora movie theater — a "gun free" zone — where he was able to kill at least 12 and wound dozens of others without any of the defenseless moviegoers being able to return fire.
"To a trained terrorist, most airports have the security of a laundromat,” aviation consultant Mike Boyd said, after a SkyWest pilot and murder suspect scaled a fence surrounding St. George Municipal Airport in Utah early Tuesday morning and drove the plane through the wire fence and into the airport parking lot, damaging cars and crashing into the airport terminal.
Another Muslim “student” from abroad has been sentenced to a lengthy term in prison.
This time, it is a 22-year-old native of Uzbekistan, one of the many “stan” countries northeast of Iran and south of Russia. He landed in the United States June 19, 2009 on a student visa, but became an illegal alien because he did not leave the country when the government revoked his visa after learning that he did not re-enroll in school.
