Where Else but America can I forced from my job by a president that raises taxes causing the company I worked for to close.
Where Else but America can I be now homeless and eat fresh garbage from a dumpster.
Where Else but America can I see the country that I love being invaded and taken over without shots being fired.
Where Else but America can the home I was evicted from see Illegal’s now in the home I once lived in and see them partying on the deck that my sweat and back built.
Where Else but America can I walk past a Mexican store and have an Illegal throw at my feet a ham bone in the dirt and be told in Spanish “here is something to eat dog” while they walk back into the store laughing at me.
Where Else but America can I with no job and no money be turned down for medical assistance and told that I can’t be helped for my diabetes, while Illegal’s with border babies receive free medical attention, receive Sec 8, food stamps, and government grants.
Where Else but America can a president go on vacation while the people that he forgot about (the homeless and the unemployed) hunger in American streets, alleys, and suburban wooded areas. How can this same president be on a Tv show (The View) while Illegal’s march in our streets for rights that belong to Americans and Naturalized citizens.
Where Else but America can we as American citizens see Illegal’s laugh at us while they refuse to obey our laws as a sitting president sues an American state in his refusing to enforce American immigration laws, while hundreds of thousands are now being forced to the streets to live.
Where Else but America can a person walk into an unemployment office and be told no to unemployment benefits by a Mexican and yet watch the Illegal’s get unemployment.
Where Else But Here….
Both Lloyd Marcus, self described “Unhyphenated Black American” and William Owens have published pieces defending former Tea Party Express chairman and spokesman Mark Williams and criticizing the unceremonious bashing Mark took for his accurate remarks about the NAACP.
I will tell you that having traveled — and lived with — all three of those gentlemen during our three weeks on the road with the Tea Party Express III national tour last April, I know first hand the camaraderie, respect and mutual admiration all had for each other and the rest of the 30+ team members.
Owens’ piece today in News With Views takes a stand, and calls out some of our fellow Americans for their absolute idiocy and inability to see how they’re being manipulated by the Leftist bunch who would like nothing better than to foment a civil war, pitting brother against brother, Black against White, illegal aliens against American citizens. Fools, every one of them.
Americans cannot afford to be intimated and therefore, shroud our lives with props that make us into someone we’re not. Whenever we shy back, it takes an eye-opening perspective to jolt us into a reality that is, many times, like a cold splash of water to our face. America is in a wicked state of being right now. With a government that has concocted Lord knows what against our freedoms, liberties and wealth, we are existing on borrowed time, and most of us don’t have a clue. It is so absurd and devious what is unfolding right in front of our eyes, that if you spoke of the possibilities of a take over—the America that we have come to know—you would be assigned to the nut house. Then maybe I’m wrong. I hope I am.
America’s only hope is for those who are fearless to create a dialog that is sometimes rude and rogue. While I admit that it brings with it a tremendous amount of risk, I argue that the alternative makes the risk worth it. In fact, in this hour, anything less than revolutionary is pointless. Why? Because the era we are living in warrants radical intervention, lest we become lulled into a silent walk towards demise as a nation.
[ ... ]
Truly the NAACP has failed most miserably to demonstrate a small element of character and guiding principle that reflects ALL people.
This fallout really shows how shallow we have become as a nation; I mean, really shallow: frail, thin-skinned, brains that are drained, hearts that are fearful, and no patience whatsoever.
Right on, brother William. Right on.
Lloyd Marcus is taking it a step further:
In light of the NAACP resolution accusing the millions of Americans who attend Tea Parties of embracing racists, Tea Party Express is hosting a National Black Conservative Press Conference.
Black conservative leaders, organization spokespersons, authors, entertainers and activists from across America will gather in Washington DC to introduce themselves and their individual roles in fighting the good fight promoting conservative principles, values and patriotism.
I have posted details of the National Black Conservative Press Conference and a list of speakers in an earlier post: Black Conservatives push back against Progressive Racists
National Black Conservative Press Conference
Date: Wednesday, August 4, 2010
Place: National Press Club, Washington DC
Unemployment in Will County has increased 24% since Debbie Halvorson was sworn in. She talks about bringing jobs back to Illinois and empowering small businesses, but her votes on Obamacare, cap and trade, the Dodd-Frank taxpayer funded bailout, and her support for card check, will do nothing but put even more Illinois families out of work.
What kind of up bringing does Matthew have? Matthew is accused of invading another mans body with a knife… what’s next take a gun and shoot somebody because they look at your girlfriend or a ball bat to somebody’s head at a stop sign for them blowing the horn, at least we here in Will County have hear say law that will convict Matthew Moustis and get this criminal off the streets. Frankfort Illinois residents can feel a little safer, hopefully Moustis’s neighbors won’t have to be afraid of being injured by Matthew due to his apparent mental problems with anger issues which are alleged…But there will be them that say; He is only a kid, give him a break.” Why?” You do the crime you should do the time…
I guess it’s nice to have political connections, we all should agree to that? Right! There are people in Will County that gets busted for pot or small infractions of the law and get higher bonds then Matthew did for stabbing another boy (note Accused-Hearsay). Am I wrong, isn’t this attempted murder? “Hell” look at the $20 million dollar bond Drew Peterson is under and he is still in jail and the major screw up of the Illinois Law enforcement when comes to the Kevin Fox case. Amazing some left-wing Judge here in Will County sees fit to kick this kid loose on a small bond just because Matthew is still considered a minor? Or was it because he is Jim Moustis’s son, That doesn’t matter to the kid Matthew is Accused of stabbing..Does it?
I know what I would do if I was the person stabbed allegedly by Matthew, I would sue the Moustis family for every damn thing they have to the tune of millions, and I would turn them into the homeless eating out of garbage cans and living on the streets! Hey, I know maybe the Moustis family could stay at the Morning Star Mission, would that teach Matthew a lesson.. Oh sorry.. They would have to pay $3.00 dollars a night to stay there and the price goes up each week…There is no charity there..Ask any homeless person down town Joliet Illinois what it’s like.
Am I being to tough on this kid as a blogger as a human being? I don’t think so, I am the same person that would convict Matthew if I was on a jury, and hopefully if Matthew is found guilty he gets 5 to 10 years for his crime. It’s not a case of boys will be boys, it’s a case of political intervention on behalf of the Moustis family by some judge, this I find appalling and should be criminal in its own right.
As many people in Will County Illinois well know there are laws for them with money and laws that convict without money. So every time Moustis collects his pay check from now on he will be getting back the money he paid out for his sons bail, he will be getting it back cause our taxes pays him..so our tax dollars actually paid for the crime.

Fathers comment Aug 15th 2010
It’s funny how when arrests are made and things are said such as, Matt Moustis giving the otter at his house upon being arrestted “it was self defense” or how he agrees to the vehicle chase. Now the State Police take over and evidence such as the Moustis’s suburban is recovered after and I state from the detectives was very hard to find. There is traces of blood in it,Wow,traces 3 weeks later. Will County said they had no evidence to take this vehicle the night of the stabbing and my lifeless son could not give a license number or vin#. Yet why would it be so hard to find evidence in a case like this…maybe because of the coverup!!! Let’s go there 2 kids were at the park that night so and stated to several kids in person as well as on facebook “Matts suburban was there and they saw the stabbing and saw the suburban race off..the sheriffs questioned these 2 kids before they left the park.According to the state police this never took place and there is no record of this!! Facebook was full of evidence but the state police still have yet to seize this! The people at the scene have not been interviewed and the intimadation of a victim is horrible..Hiding evidence in a crime investigation last time i knew was a crime,paying off witnesses and making recorded information on paper disappear makes me as a parent not trust a legal system. Matt almost killed my son and Haley is an accomplice. Oh of course no charges against Haley yet because the system allows for the amendment of what the judge called a vague Order of Protection for her against my son more lies without any evidence are taken and she gets this order..My son who needs this order is told to get out of her courtroom!! what a joke!! We live this coverup more and more everyday!! we have hired a civil attorney and now have hired a criminal attorney to defend the victim,my son.
After 14 hours of interrogation in a small, windowless room, Kevin Fox simply gave up. He knew he hadn’t sexually assaulted or murdered his 3-year-old daughter, but police had rejected his requests for a lawyer and told him they would arrange for inmates to rape him in jail, according to court records. The distraught father later testified that detectives also screamed at him, showed him a picture of his daughter, bound and gagged with duct tape, and told him that his wife was planning to divorce him, the records show. Fox finally agreed to a detective’s hypothetical account of how his daughter, Riley, died in an accident, thinking investigators would realize that the phony details didn’t match up with the evidence, his lawyer said. Instead, he remained in Will County jail for 8 months, released only after DNA evidence excluded him as a suspect. In May, another man was charged with the crime.
What could be a similar story is now unfolding in Lake County, where Jerry Hobbs III, 39, is accused of murdering his 8-year-old daughter and her 9-year-old friend. Hobbs, who had a criminal record, has been in jail five years, in large part because of a confession that emerged after hours of high-pressure interrogation. Prosecutors planned to seek the death penalty in his October trial, even though his DNA did not match semen found on his daughter’s body. Authorities recently matched the DNA with another man accused of rape and robbery in Arlington, Va., offering Hobbs a chance at exoneration and once again raising the possibility that police coerced a suspect to falsely confess. Both cases raise a question: Why would anyone confess to such horrific crimes — especially involving their own child or loved one — if they didn’t commit them? Seemingly unfathomable, it happens far more often than most people believe, experts say. “The interrogation itself is stressful enough to get innocent people to confess,” said Saul Kassin, a psychology professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. “But add to that a layer of grief and shock and perhaps even some guilt — ‘I should have been there’ — and then that the parent is trying like hell to be cooperative because they want the murder of their child solved.” Trauma, lack of sleep and highly manipulative interrogation techniques are a few factors that can cause the most level-headed people to falsely confess to a crime — even one as heinous as a child’s murder, according to experts.
Researchers believe that false confessions lead to about 25 percent of wrongful convictions, a statistic underscored by the increasingly sophisticated use of DNA evidence. Over the past two decades, 254 people have been exonerated by DNA evidence, including 17 who were on death row, according to the Innocence Project, a nonprofit legal clinic based at Yeshiva University in New York. “We know that for certain kinds of people, particularly those with mental illness and mental deficiencies, but other people as well, the psychological intensity of an interrogation can prove absolutely as torturous as physical pain,” said Lawrence Marshall, a Stanford University law professor who co-foundedNorthwestern University’s Center on Wrongful Convictions. Confessions carry powerful weight with juries, and, as shown in the Hobbs case, they also strongly influence authorities. In 2008, Lake County Judge Fred Foreman agreed with prosecutors that Hobbs should remain imprisoned without bail, despite the revelation that his DNA did not match the semen found on his daughter’s body. Prosecutors suggested that Hobbs’ daughter Laura had gotten the DNA in her body because she was found in a wooded area where people apparently go to have sex — in spite of the fact she was fully clothed. Lake County prosecutors have not said if they have ruled out Hobbs as a participant in the crime, but they announced they’re renewing their investigation in light of the DNA evidence. In the Fox case, the Will County Sheriff’s Department plans to hire an outside firm to evaluate its procedures and determine if they need to be changed. “Obviously, there were some things that went wrong in this investigation,” the sheriff’s spokesman, Pat Barry, said.
“We are in the process now of vetting a couple of firms … that will come in and review the Fox case for us.” Confessions that are not backed up with corroborating evidence should be viewed as suspect, Marshall said. “I think what we are seeing right now is there has become an overdependence on confessions,” said Marshall, who is appealing the case of Juan Rivera of Waukegan, who in May 2009 was convicted for the third time of the rape and murder of an 11-year-old girl despite DNA evidence that excluded him. Lake County prosecutors suggested the girl was sexually active to undercut the DNA. While law enforcement agencies have long relied on the “Reid Technique” method of interrogation to elicit confessions, some critics argue it’s based on faulty assumptions of deceptive behavior. Investigators are taught how to base their questions and method of interrogation on a suspect’s verbal and non-verbal cues and mood, sometimes using a “baiting” approach to elicit confessions. Even those who believe such techniques are effective in obtaining true confessions say they can be misused by authorities. “There is a lot of coercion that can happen, short of the (former Chicago police Cmdr. Jon) Burge case where they are torturing someone to get confessions,” said Fred Hunter of Hinsdale, a licensed polygraph administrator. Burge, 62, was convicted last month of obstruction of justice and perjury for lying about torturing suspects in a civil case. Those most vulnerable to overzealous police work often are “throwaway people,” said Hunter, referring to suspects who lack education, advocates or resources to represent themselves.
Dr. Robert Galatzer-Levy, a psychiatrist on the faculty of the University of Chicago and the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis, said interrogations are designed “not simply to get information,” as the police often portray them. Instead, he said, interrogations are “well-thought-through psychological manipulations to get a confession.” Police do that by first developing a rapport with suspects. They then give them their Miranda rights, though in such a way that suspects feel they are being uncooperative if they invoke them. Finally, he said, police confront a suspect, saying they know he committed the crime but offering a way out that acknowledges guilt but to something less heinous. The stress that comes with the death of a child, as in the cases of Hobbs and Fox, makes it all the worse. In such cases, experts say, it is natural for the police to focus their attention first on the child’s parents or siblings. Many murders of children, it turns out, are committed by family members. “People all say, ‘I’d never confess. Not in a million years,'” said Galatzer-Levy. “But it turns out that people who are vigorously interrogated will confess — even if they’re innocent. The terrified but rational person might give police a story just to end the interrogation, or because they think it might improve their situation.” Richard Leo of the University of San Francisco law school said no research has been done on whether the death of a family member makes a suspect more susceptible to interrogation. But, he said, “it kind of stands to reason. They’re grief-stricken. They’re distressed. They’ve often not gotten a lot of sleep. Those are all conditions that contribute to false confessions.” In the book “True Stories of False Confessions,” Rob Warden and Steven A. Drizin of the Center on Wrongful Convictions write that reasons for false confessions range from desperation suspects feel as they endure lengthy interrogations to police exploiting suspects’ mental handicaps. Warden draws parallels between the case of Fox and Hobbs. In May, officials announced DNA matched a sex offender, Scott Eby, who has been charged in Riley Fox’s murder.
Fox and Hobbs were accused of killing their children, leaving the two fathers especially distraught and more vulnerable to what Warden called “the emotional and intellectual manipulation that interrogators are taught to use.” Hobbs’ interrogation ran for close to 20 hours. Although both confessions were videotaped, the interrogations were not — even though a new law had been signed that required the videotaping of interrogations in murder cases. The law at that point had not gone into effect. “You can’t imagine you’d ever confess to something you didn’t do,” said Warden. “But at some point people simply lose their will to resist. That’s the danger of prolonged interrogation.” What’s more, police often have preconceived notions of how a father, say, should react to the death of a child. When a suspect’s behavior strays from those notions, police may ratchet up pressure. “Either you’re crying too much or you’re not crying enough,” said Warden. “Both touch off suspicion. You can’t win either way.” Crimes happen but when a cop makes rank by forcing confession, now that’s criminal…
