Some details about Judge John Roll killed in Arizona massacre

There’s some strange things about this case.  I was thinking there’s an awful lot of activity on the one hand, so what is the other hand doing?

A federal judge was killed in this shooting and it has been barely mentioned.  There have been news conferences and endless coverage and yet no one has addressed his injuries.  Where was he shot?  When did he die, at the scene or at the hospital?  Could he have been the target?  You would think the death of a federal judge would be the top story, or at least of equal coverage.

They have made a point of stating that Congresswoman Giffords was the target, but that may or may not be true.  So I began trying to find out something about Judge Roll, and what I found leads me to believe he could very well have been more than a random victim.  May or may not.  I don’t know.

But in 2009 Judge Roll was assigned round the clock security because of numerous threats against his life.  He was presiding over a case in which some illegals had sued a rancher for detaining them as they were crossing his land coming into the United States.  He had ruled that the case could go forward and this became a subject of talk radio which resulted in the threats.  This explains a lot as to why we keep hearing so much about toning down the rhetoric.

An Arizona man who has waged a 10-year campaign to stop a flood of illegal immigrants from crossing his property is being sued by 16 Mexican nationals who accuse him of conspiring to violate their civil rights when he stopped them at gunpoint on his ranch on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Roger Barnett, 64, began rounding up illegal immigrants in 1998 and turning them over to the U.S. Border Patrol, he said, after they destroyed his property, killed his calves and broke into his home.

His Cross Rail Ranch near Douglas, Ariz., is known by federal and county law enforcement authorities as “the avenue of choice” for immigrants seeking to enter the United States illegally.

…..the lawsuit, which seeks $32 million in actual and punitive damages for civil rights violations, the infliction of emotional distress and other crimes. Also named are Mr. Barnett’s wife, Barbara, his brother, Donald, and Larry Dever, sheriff in Cochise County, Ariz., where the Barnetts live.

The lawsuit is based on a March 7, 2004, incident in a dry wash on the 22,000-acre ranch, when he approached a group of illegal immigrants while carrying a gun and accompanied by a large dog.

See Washington Times  http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/feb/09/16-illegals-sue-arizona-rancher/

Verdict:  A federal jury in Tucson ruled that an Arizona rancher did not violate the civil rights of 16 Mexican nationals he stopped after they sneaked illegally into the United States, but awarded $78,000 in actual and punitive damages on claims of assault and the infliction of emotional distress.

I’ll bet the whole thing is about illegal immigration and that could explain why President Obama came out so quickly to make a statement.  That was way out of character for him to move so quickly.

There were four men identified as having made the threats against the judge, but he declined to press charges against them.  So don’t you know they have been hunting these guys down behind the scenes.

Something else I ran across was a Wikipedia page showing a date of death for Congresswoman Giffords.  Somebody was really in a hurry to make that notation.  I’m not sure how such changes are made so maybe that’s not unusual, but you would think they would be sure she was dead before reporting her death in Wikipedia.  I just copied the entry below.

Gabrielle Giffords (June 8, 1970 – January 8, 2011) was the U.S. Representative for Arizona’s 8th congressional district. She was a member of the Democratic Party.

On January 8, 2011, she was shot dead at a public event in Tucson, Arizona.[1]


On January 8, 2011, Congresswoman Giffords and at least nine other persons were shot at a “Congress on Your Corner” event at a supermarket in Tucson, Arizona. The suspect was arrested. Giffords died later at University Medical Center in Tucson. [40]

This whole thing is getting curiouser and curiouser.

Expose the left and their tactics

This from Hillbuzz:

“The imperative going forward is to show the American people exactly what they are dealing with when it comes to the Left. For whatever reason, they have never seen that before.  It’s time to think outside the box about ways to expose the Left for what it is, so they can no longer make things up and get away with it.


They do have to stop making things up.  Every lie they tell on the tea party means more eyes are opened.  Even after the election they don’t seem to realize when they smear the tea party they are smearing a huge swath of ordinary middle American citizens.

Look at this video.  This is Mark Penn, (on MSNBC) the president’s relatively new advisor.  I certainly hope he does not really think “another Oklahoma” is a good way for Obama to reconnect – like Clinton reconnected.  This is a left brain at work so maybe he does.

Arizona shooter appears to be deranged leftist

What a tragedy in Arizona today.

I just heard the sheriff of the county in which this mass shooting occurred say he thought there was too much vitriol in the country and that Arizona seemed to be a catalyst for prejudice and bigotry.

I’m really glad he brought that up. The vitriol coming from leftist commentators such as Keith Olbermann and others on MSNBC on a daily basis could tend to influence an unstable individual such as Jared Loughner clearly is, even though it is no excuse for his actions. And from Loughner’s profile, I’m sure that would more than likely be his network of choice. And even the president has encouraged lawlessness in Arizona by pitting the United States government against Arizona in a lawsuit. There is a lot of prejudice and bigotry against anyone who disagrees or speaks out against the leftist agenda.

I clicked on a link to the Daily Kos to reach a post called “My CongressWOMAN voted against Nancy Pelosi! And is now DEAD to me!” written only two days ago when a few democrats, including Gabrielle Giffords, voted for someone other than Nancy Pelosi as minority leader. I bookmarked the page to go back to it later, and then I thought, I believe I’ll just copy that page, which I did. I went back to it shortly thereafter, and lo and behold it had been removed. Now why would they want that removed I wonder?

I notice several others thought the same thing and got a screen shot of it.

It seems that though Mrs. Giffords is a democrat, she is a blue dog conservative democrat and that has not set too well with “Mr. Kos” since June of 2008 when he put a bull’s eye on her, I suppose for defeat.

Mrs. Giffords is a staunch supporter of gun rights, is pro-life , strong on border control, and was one of three congressmen who urged President Obama not to file a law suit against Arizona.

Both Hillbuzz and Sweetness and Light have done an excellent job of posting shots of the sites and posts that are frantically being removed from the net, so I won’t post all of it here.

I’ll just post this profile that was on Loughner’s You Tube site.

My name is Jared Lee Loughner!
United States
I attended school: Thornydale elementary,Tortolita Middle School, Mountain View Highschool, Northwest Aztec Middle College, and Pima Community College.
My favorite interest was reading, and I studied grammar. Conscience dreams were a great study in college!
(*My idiom: I could coin the moment!*)
Pass me the strings!
I had favorite books: Animal Farm, Brave New World, The Wizard Of OZ, Aesop Fables, The Odyssey, Alice Adventures Into Wonderland, Fahrenheit 451, Peter Pan, To Kill A Mockingbird, We The Living, Phantom Toll Booth, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Pulp,Through The Looking Glass, The Communist Manifesto, Siddhartha, The Old Man And The Sea, Gulliver’s Travels, Mein Kampf, The Republic, and Meno.

And this very, very strange and scary video that he marked as a favorite. I don’t know if this creepy figure is him or not, but I did see a comment that makes me think he was involved in it somehow or at least knew the person who was. This probably will be removed soon, too, but it has been downloaded to several computers.
