The Border Exception

Reading this story about a guy who found a federal govt spycam on his land (then removed it, kept it and when they demand it back refused and sued them for being dicks), I found a mention of something called the “Border Exception” to the 4th Amendment. That’s a loophole that Customs and Border Protection agency claims is real and which they claim lets them essentially ignore the 4th amendment if they’re within 100 miles of the US border. That 100 mile strip would include 2/3s of all Americans – 80% if you consider international airports to be “borders”. And, despite being slapped back several times by the court, the CPB hasn’t stopped. They’re still illegally stopping, searching and seizing and claiming that they’re allowed to.

The Rod Of Iron

Parents are expressing concern after a church announced it will hold a ceremony next week, and worshipers are encouraged to bring assault weapons with them, and the ceremony will be just down the road from an elementary school.

“This will be a big thing for us. It’s a new stage for us because it incorporates the rod of iron, as it is in Revelations. Revelations talks about the returning Christ ruling with the rod of iron.”

Sanctuary Church and Rod of Iron Ministries are one in the same, run by the Moon family from South Korea who started the controversial Unification Church.

Moon is the son of the late Sun Myung Moon, who founded the controversial Unification Church that drew national attention in the 1970s and ’80s. The Rod of Iron Ministries is an offshoot of that religious organization focusing on what it believes is the right of families to defend themselves with assault weapons.

“This rod of iron is the AR-15, in today’s terms.”

The Moon family also owns Kahr Arms, a gunmaker that moved to Pike County a couple years ago. Newswatch 16 was at the opening ceremony at that time in Blooming Grove Township.

LOL. People can be so fucking stupid.

Choices

In a letter sent to families and published on schools’ social media sites, Rhodes said students would face a three-day, out-of-school suspension if they joined in growing protests nationwide over the shooting at a Florida high school last week.

“Life is all about choices and every choice has a consequence whether it be positive or negative. We will discipline no matter if it is one, fifty, or five hundred students involved,” Rhodes wrote. “All will be suspended for 3 days and parent notes will not alleviate the discipline.”

I think I’d choose suspension, and wear it with honor for the rest of my life.

Rhodes can die mad about it.
