The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) and the Ravalli County Sheriff’s Office are asking for the public’s help regarding the recent theft of approximately 285 pounds of high explosives from an explosives bunker located near Victor.

Between approximately March 15th and April 1st, 2014, someone used forced entry to get into an explosives storage facility operated by Ajax Contracting Inc. west of Victor.

The following items were stolen from the storage facility: ANFO (Ammonium nitrate fuel oil); explosive boosters; dynamite. Sample photographs of the types of explosives taken are shown below.

In a press release, ATF agent Ken Bray said, “The theft of explosives is a very serious crime and a top investigative priority for ATF. We are asking for the public’s help in our effort to apprehend and convict those responsible. We are confident that someone can help identify a suspect and we encourage them to call us.”

Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman said, “Locating these explosives is imperative to the safety of the citizens of Ravalli County and elsewhere. The Sheriff’s Office is working closely with ATF to resolve this case as soon and safely as possible”.

A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered to anyone who provides information that leads to the recovery of the explosives and to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for the theft.

Stealing explosives and possession of stolen explosives is a federal crime that is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

A FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY

In  Florida, an atheist created a case against Easter and Passover Holy days.  He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians and Jews and observances of their holy days.  The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days.  
       The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, “Case dismissed!”
 

       The lawyer immediately stood and objecting to the ruling saying,
“Your honor, How can you possibly dismiss this case?  The Christians have Christmas, Easter and others.
  The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays…” 
 
       The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, “But you do. Your client, counselor, is woefully ignorant.”
 
       The lawyer said,” Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists.”
 
       The judge said, “The calendar says April 1st is April Fool’s Day.  Psalm 14:1 states, ‘The fool says in his heart, there is no God.’  Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that, if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool.  Therefore, April 1st is his day.
   Court is adjourned…”

 

You gotta love a Judge that knows his scripture!

Gateway Pundit

How do you get from 5 million Obamacare enrollees to 7.1 million Obamacare enrollees in two weeks?
You start the applications yourself.

Health and Human Services was mailing out letters notifying certain Americans that they had already started a healthcare coverage application on their behalf.
HHS had started the applications for them.

The Shark Tank reported:

News of the HHS letter was first mentioned by a listener of the popular “Daybreak with Drew Steele” Show on Fox 92.5, which is out of Fort Myers, Florida.

I stood by the people who smoke because it was never about second hand smoke, it was never about health care and it was never about the children. It was and still is about CONTROL and the sooner realize it the sooner we can take back our country.

Fox News

A federal proposal requiring more efficiency from wood-burning stoves has ignited a debate between the Obama administration and lawmakers who oppose the new regulations, arguing the rules impose an unfair burden on people in remote areas. 

The Environmental Protection Agency proposed a rule changes in January that would dramatically tighten emissions requirements on new wood-powered heaters, though does not impact ones already in homes.

Concealed Carry Enacted In Illinois, Guess What Happened To Chicago Murder Rate In This First Quarter?

I agree, too soon to be definitive evidence in this case, but certainly consistent with what has happened elsewhere.

Via IJR:

In July of 2013, Illinois became the last state in the union to enact a concealed carry law. In January of this year, the state began accepting applications for permits. This week, Chicago police announced that the city’s first quarter murder rate was the lowest since 1958.

Via ABC-affiliate Eye Witness News in the Windy City:

The first three months of the year saw 6 fewer murders than the same time frame in 2013–a 9 percent drop–and 55 fewer murders than 2012, according to a statement from Chicago Police.

There were 90 fewer shootings and 119 fewer shooting victims, drops of 26 and 29 percent respectively, according to police statistics.

Compared to the first quarter of 2012, there have been 222 fewer shootings and 292 fewer shooting victims. Overall crime is down 25 percent from last year, and police said more than 1,300 illegal guns were recovered in the last three months.

Coincidence? Hard to say. And too early to tell. Although, I doubt that the anti-gun crowd is celebrating the good news.
