Proposal for School Marshals in Washington State

The following proposal for School Marshals in Washington state is republished from the March 15, 2018 Spokesman Review.

There are once again many heated discussions about how to stop the carnage in our schools. A few years ago, we led a group of trial attorneys through an analysis of what it will take for Washington state school districts to seriously tackle the issue of protecting schools. It is apparent that Parkland School District in Florida will have to pay huge sums for its failure to anticipate mass murder that was very foreseeable.

School Marshals- Not Teachers with guns. Many school boards and legislatures in other states have already embarked on a policy of authorizing armed personnel within school premises. Federal and Washington state law both leave it up to school boards to designate who will be armed in Washington schools. Nevertheless, most educators and school boards flatly reject proposals for arming teachers with guns.

There is reason to believe that some Washington state schools are already taking quiet steps, however. Teachers who choose to undertake the training and responsibility of being a school marshal should not be denied the same opportunity to serve as certified School Marshals that we are proposing for other qualified personnel.

Public Duty Doctrine It should not be a surprise to anyone that such matters are insurance driven. Washington state’s Public Duty Doctrine dictates that a policy decision not to deploy armed protection in the schools exposes school districts to very low levels of liability. That is because it is a pure policy decision and therefore immune from liability for almost any accidents that occur.

Brief in Support of Retired LEO Denied Federal LEOSA Card

Petitioner has standing and states a claim upon which relief may be granted because LEOSA and the Administrative Procedure Act is appropriate for the relief sought. Johnson v. New York State Dep’t of Corr. Servs presents facts that are very different from the facts presented herein.  In Johnson, the Plaintiffs asserted a right to carry under LEOSA.  The court  held that Congress did not intend to create a private cause of action, but rather a private right. The Johnson court stated:

For the same reasons as with consideration of the second Cort factor, the creation of a federal remedy would be inconsistent with LEOSA’s statutory scheme because Congress left the states with the authority to issue concealed firearm certifications. Therefore, this factor also weighs against the determination that Congress intended to establish a private cause of action.

Johnson, supra (emphasis added).  Read more

Personal Self-Defense is Fundamental to Liberty & Economic Freedom

The cartels just across the border from El Paso, Texas erupted in violence several years ago. Ciudad Juárez was ground zero in Mexico’s war against drug cartels. The violence spread until citizens in Michoacán organized what became known as Autodefensas or self-defense organizations.

Dr. José Manuel Mireles, the leader of the self-defense group in the Mexican state of Michoacán, was released from prison on the morning of May 12, 2017, after serving nearly three years in prison. Cartel Land is a documentary film that tells the story of how, under Dr. Mireles, the Autodefensas, recruited and trained fellow citizens to stop the Knights Templar in Tepalcatepec. Starting in February, 2013, the citizens of Tepalcatepec confronted the Knights Templar cartel, which had been terrorizing the population of the Tierra Caliente area of Michoacán. Read more

Wuli Masters, Keynesian Warlocks & Reptilians

Dancing Wuli Masters, Keynesian Warlocks & Reptilian Conspiracies

Some people thrive on conspiracy theories. The very nature of conspiracy theories is such that historically the widespread belief in conspiracies has destabilized societies in ways that can be very well documented.

Conspiracy Theories

For instance, the German High Command promulgated false documents, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”, purporting to be a Jewish conspiracy and utilized the documents to create paranoia in Czarist Russia and other countries. Hitler’s beliefs in a Zionist conspiracy helped to bring about the subversion of Germany’s Weimar Republic and in many quarters of Europe and the Middle East, the Protocols are still accepted at face-value as historical fact.

WHY THE SECOND AMENDMENT MATTERS

In 2008, the Supreme Court of the United States (hereinafter SCOTUS) ruled that Americans have an individual right to keep and bear arms. Why does the decision in DC V HELLER matter to city-dwellers like you and I that live or work in Federal Way and have almost no place in our lives for hunting, target shooting or toting a pistol as we go about our busy routines?

Sell Your Cloak and Buy a Sword

In Matthew 22, as Jesus prepared to leave from his last meal to go to his execution, he said to them,…he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one.

Did Christ literally instruct his followers to acquire swords or is this symbolic language- a metaphor for studying his Word, perhaps? We will follow with more but it does not take too much thought to see that a pistol is analogous to the sword. The sword was the personal weapon of choice down through the ages. Why did Peter possess the sword that he wielded when the Lord was arrested? Because the Lord told him to have one, of course. Read more

Warrior Values vs. the Culture of Therapy

http://www.newswithviews.com/Pratt/larry81.htm

Everybody claims to honor our veterans. The anti-war activists that despised President Bush “supported” the troops. Such support is often expressed as concern about the levels of Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome experienced by returning veterans.

Veterans often deal with high levels of stress. The public’s perception that veterans may harm themselves and others can contribute to stress. The perception is fostered by mainstream media outlets like the New York Times.

A spokesperson for a mental health provider that works with the VA and veterans told me that veteran’s gun rights are not important. Her main concern was ensuring that vets did not blow their brains out- supposedly it is a small price to pay if vets lose their gun rights. Why should a veteran trust such professionals who regard Constitutional rights with such a cavalier attitude? Read more

The Merovingian Bloodline

The “Merovingian Bloodline” is an esoteric doctrine and network of secret societies that have a pedigree purporting to relate back to a time before Charlemagne. King Dagobert II and his descendants used such fables to perpetuate the succession of their royal bloodline. They insinuated that the dynasty’s claim to the Frankish throne was bolstered by a genetic connection to Christ via Mary Magdalene.

There are powerful political and ancient family interests in Europe prepared to make such claims for which they may have been laying a groundwork for many years. Expect to soon hear rumors and suggestions, perhaps with signs or concocted miracles, that certain leaders have a connection to extra-terrestrial civilzations. Supernatural claims are essential for the European Union to achieve its dream of embracing a future European strongman. Read more
