Democrat Rep. Charlie Rangel has found himself in a bit of a pickle. After years of allegedly thumbing his nose at pesky things like rules, his supposed misdeeds may be coming back to bite him on the proverbial hind quarter.
A House ethics committee subpanel today found Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel guilty of 11 of the 13 charges of ethics violations against him.The panel, composed of four Democrats and four Republicans, emerged after private deliberation to announce their findings.
“This has been a difficult assignment,” committee chair Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) said. “We have tried to act with fairness, led only by the facts and the law, and I believe we have accomplished that mission.”
The subpanel will now submit its findings to the full ethics committee, which will schedule a public hearing to determine the appropriate sanctions to take against the longtime New York representative. Whatever action they decide on during the sanctions hearing will then go to the full House of Representatives. The committee could go so far as to recommend expelling Rangel, but that would be unlikely. Other possible sanctions include a House vote deploring Rangel’s conduct, a fine or a denial of privileges.
Democratic Representative Charlie Rangel spoke to the Daily Caller on Tuesday, in regards to a recent scandal involving four NYPD officials who were arrested for accepting bribes in exchange for police escorts and gun licenses, among other perks.
When asked by The Daily Caller his thoughts on the difficulty of getting a concealed carry permit in New York City and how rare it is for such permits to be issued by the NYPD, Rangel replied, “I’m glad to hear you say that very few people get it.”
“We don’t need that many guns,” he continued. “I didn’t know that briberies were involved in getting a gun, and that is wrong, but overall, if it is difficult to get a concealed weapon permit, I’m glad to hear that.”
Rangel went on to say that his own law-abiding constituents in Harlem shouldn’t have to carry guns for their own protection. However, the same rules don’t apply to the political elite.
“Law-abiding citizens just shouldn’t have to carry a gun. You’re not gonna push me in that direction,” he said, standing just five feet from a Capitol Police officer, who stood at his post by the House Speaker’s Lobby.
TheDC noted to Rangel he and other members of Congress are protected by armed members of the U.S. Capitol Police.
“Well that’s a little different. I think we deserve–I think we need to be protected down here.” Rangel laughingly insisted.
Rangel never bothered to explain why average citizens shouldn’t be armed in public, while members of his protected class are exempted. That’s because there isn’t a good explanation. There’s no way for a politician like Rangel to argue that people don’t need guns without sounding like an out of touch elitist.
Nothing to see here. Move along.

The following is a comment by Rani on the article SouthernPrepper1: Britain just poked the Globalists in the eye. Actually, Paul Revere’s warning was not The British Are Coming since every colonist was British at that time. He said The Regulars Are Out. In our case, the Muslim Government in Washington is Out.
The British are coming! the British are going!! What’s this? Nothing but another set of manipulating elites using the people’s vote to strategically disentangle themselves in their usual way. In the history of the bloody ( the English love the word bloody) English Monarchy alliances are a dime a dozen. All happening here is realignment of powers to further ” their agenda”.
When will we learn? The racist sexist capitalist white foundling fathers were doing Briexit! They came to a country, took it over and plotted to be themselves manipulators of men or as we fondly call them leaders. To think of anything but an unraveling of pieced together borders constructed by men once again is terrifying to me, but oh so prophetic.
We need to figure out why we keep doing the same dumb crap over and over again. To forget history is to be doomed to repeat it.
The British are the reason the Iraq, Iran, and the Saudis are power brokers today. Remember world war 1? Humans have allowed the Romans to reinvent themselves and capitalize of the ignorance of man since time began. We have been drawing borders since Abrahm said he was now Abraham and fought for land.
Checkmate! They win again. We, the common man have NEVER won! You see…it is our children’s bloody bodies that we will bury, or not, left to rot in the hot Texas or NC sun. it is our lives that will build this new set of borders and we will die for, and it’s our Inhibitory and excitatory electricity that will stop as our bodies die and our brains stop sparking. We will have once again cleared grind for monkey to run on..as my mom would say.
Shame on us that our hate for our own kind black and white, Christian and Muslim, will cause us to become the real white man’s bitch. We should be sticking tough together. To finally take what is ours. We cannot pursue any type of happiness while we hate. Until we can find it in ourselves to respect and even live each other we will draw endless borders with our blood for them.
All the black youth you hate firing the guns aimlessly at each other now in the USA are no different than the child soldiers of Africa, the Middle East, the pacific etc. America is new to this British game. Hold on to your hats, ask Mary Queen of Scotland how things worked out with her alliance. Or better yet go to your recent history, the American civil war?
Smh. Jamaica still pays the British monarchy, as do many of the nations within her colonial power who holla patriotic Independence Day songs. July4th. Independence Day. August 6th. May 10th. The dates vary but watch the the cultish celebration of a people who are chained to an idea, so chained mentally that physical chains are not necessary. You can tell them they are free and the believe.
Ask that good old boy Paul Revere how free we are today.

PIR1: What are the current indicators of systems disruption that could lead to a SHTF event?
If America experiences an SHTF event in the next year, my money is on a cyber attack. Tracking these events, even I’ve been amazed at just how dire our vulnerabilities are. I don’t think we see strength in any particular sector; the power grids, SCADA systems in critical infrastructure, and the financial sector all face very grave threats. This is a high-risk game. We’re by no means ‘wide open’, but I have little faith that we can successfully defend against a determined cyber adversary. And I have less faith in society to react appropriately to systems disruption on a wide scale.
This month, U.S. Cyber Command spent nine days during a “cyber 9/11” exercise which pitted them against a near-peer adversary like Russia or China. Although slated for full operational capability by the end of 2016, CyberCom won’t be fully operational until at least 2018. And still only half of CyberCom is at initial operating capacity. Think of it this way: half of CyberCom is barely walking in the crawl-walk-run spectrum. And from what little open source reporting was available from this exercise, I didn’t gather that CyberCom exactly hit a home run.
Another point of contention is that CyberCom’s domain often overlaps with privately-owned infrastructure. There could very well be a battle between corporate cybersecurity and government cybersecurity personnel over who has control of that infrastructure. That’s going to be a very gray area, and ultimately it’s going to lead to a national emergency in which government will take control of anything it wants. We can still argue about which parts of the Constitution are generally being upheld, but a sustained, major cyber attack is going to be a Constitution killer.
Based on what I’ve seen so far this year, we should absolutely be preparing for surviving in a grid-down environment. The overall likelihood is low; this is not an imminent event, but it’s a very high-risk situation. And we’re in the prelude to war against adversaries who can do it.

Recently we awoke to discover a radical Islamist had killed at least forty-nine more American citizens. Around noon our president informed us that it was a terror attack but again refused to link it with Islam even though the killer called 911 and informed them of his status with ISIS and screamed Allah Akbar as he was battling the SWAT squad. The One keeps getting the memo – he just refuses to accept its content!
This is certainly not the first time that our nation has been attacked by Islamic radicals and it won’t be the last. Islamic extremists have been at war with America for more than a decade – the problem is that America has yet to join the fray. Yes, this administration has flown some Drones over suspected ISIS/ISIL caravans and suspected strongholds and dropped a few bombs – but nothing of substance has been or will be done before January 20, 2017 – and not then if Hillary is anointed to continue the denial and pacification project.
When pressed to profile, or institute more stringent Muslim immigration policies, or more earnestly monitor young Muslims the president responded with “That’s not who we are.” In just San Bernardino, CA and Orlando, FL; at least 63 innocent Americans have been killed and 75 wounded – some of which may yet die. If the dead could have a voice they would no doubt take umbrage with our beloved leader.
We are watching what happens when the economy of a developed nation totally implodes. Just a few years ago, Venezuela was the wealthiest nation in all of South America, and they still have more proven oil reserves than anyone else on the entire planet including Saudi Arabia. But now people down there are so hungry and so desperate that some of them are actually hunting dogs, cats and pigeons for food. Just a few days ago, I gave a talk down at Morningside during which I warned that someday we would see armed guards on food trucks in America. After that talk was done, I went back up to my room and I came across a New York Times article which had been republished by MSN that explained that this exact thing is already happening down in Venezuela…
With delivery trucks under constant attack, the nation’s food is now transported under armed guard. Soldiers stand watch over bakeries. The police fire rubber bullets at desperate mobs storming grocery stores, pharmacies and butcher shops. A 4-year-old girl was shot to death as street gangs fought over food.
Venezuela is convulsing from hunger.
Hundreds of people here in the city of Cumaná, home to one of the region’s independence heroes, marched on a supermarket in recent days, screaming for food. They forced open a large metal gate and poured inside. They snatched water, flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar, potatoes, anything they could find, leaving behind only broken freezers and overturned shelves.
All over the country, people are standing in extremely long lines day after day hoping to get some food. Sometimes the food trucks don’t bring anything, and sometimes it is just scraps like fish heads and rotten fruit. To get a better idea of what life is like in Venezuela right now, just check out this YouTube video…
In terms of both population and GDP, California is about equal to Canada — and with much better weather. Texas is equal in economy and population size to Australia. Pennsylvania’s economy is similar in size to Switzerland.
While secession of American states is often dismissed as absurd, there are few reasons to believe that a state like Texas — to name just one example —could not immediately transition from state to nation-state. With a large economy, port cities, oil, and easy access to European, Latin American, and even Asian economies by sea, economics arguments against such a separation fall flat. And of course, the success of smaller states like Norway, Denmark, and Switzerland illustrate that bigness is truly unnecessary. Naturally, many other states even beyond the biggest states — such as Pennsylvania, New Jersey, North Carolina and others — could do the same. These states would all be among the largest economies on earth were they to leave the US.
“But what about national defense!” some may argue. “Wouldn’t Texas be constantly at war with the United States?” Experience suggests that Texas would be at war with the United States about as frequently as Canada has been at war with the United States: zero times since 1815.
International wars rarely erupt between countries with common languages, common histories, and common economic interests. Should Scotland secede, the UK won’t be sending in the tanks, and Scotland could easily join the realm of independent nation states, just as many American states could do the same.
Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
Does the above law reflect our state?

Texit is easy. What would we call a North Carolina Exit?
A federal prosecutor revealed in a court document that the investigation of FBI agents involved in the traffic stop that led to the killing of Oregon standoff spokesman Robert “LaVoy” Finicum is before a grand jury.
Attorneys for the defendants accused of taking part in the Ammon Bundy-led takeover of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon have been seeking records from the investigation into the FBI’s use of force in the Finicum shooting and whether there was a cover-up.
In a motion to keep reports sealed, Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles Gorder wrote Thursday that matters before a grand jury are protected from disclosure rules.
