Michael Bloomberg is Spending $50 Million to Help Gun Owners!

New York, NY—Billionaire and former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg announced he’s investing $50 million of his own money to castigate firearms owners and the NRA
Apparently Bloomberg has failed to notice that the more discussion about firearms to more popular gun rights becomes.  Each political push after mass shootings has backfired greater than the last!  These days each poll on gun control is better than the last! 
Nearly every public relations experts understands what the late, P.T. Barnum said, “I don't care what they say about me, just make sure they spell my name right!”  Even bad publicity can be good! 
With each discussion of gun control comes research and lots of thought.  In the end the lies, half-truths and deception about guns fails.  What people discover is guns can save lives, especially their own! 
Bloomberg couldn’t help gun owners any better even if he gave the cash to the NRA! 
Bloomberg’s planned mission is as defective as his entire thought process on guns.  In the end I expect we will have much better educated population when it guns and gun rights.  Thanks Mike!

Arizona Court of Appeals Rules Disgraced Former Cop Can be Forced to Testify and Incriminate himself in Debra Milke’s New Murder, Death Penalty Trial.

Phoenix, AZ—The Arizona Court of Appeals accepted jurisdiction of a Special Action, heard arguments, overruled and reversed Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Rosa Mroz.  
This should have been a no-brainer but prosecutors have tremendous power over judges and the public ratings they receive.  My conclusion is that this three-judge panel fell on their swords for prosecutors rather than maintain independence and rule on the reality and the law.
Only the rogue former cop, Armando Saldate knows for sure what he may be forced to say that could or would incriminate him.  Prosecutors and judges can only speculate and their error would well violate Saldate’s Fifth Amendment rights.
The simplest question that is beyond troublesome would begin with the Following:  Mr. Saldate, when you testified under oath at Debra Milke’s Habeas  hearing before Judge Broomfield in January of 2009 did you knowingly commit perjury?  Only Saldate knows the correct answer!  Only Saldate knows for sure if he lied.  If he lied and confesses he is open to federal prosecution.  If Saldate lies and denies committing perjury he faces multiple counts of Perjury. 
Should such a question be asked at any future juncture of this case and Saldate again invokes the Fifth Amendment the proceedings will be halted once again. This  ruling by the AZ Court of Appeals is somewhat ill-advised and silly.
Saldate’s lawyer, Treasure VanDreumel told reporters she plans a further appeal to the AZ Supreme Court. 
Assuming that this ruling is the last word the next step would be to argue a pending Motion to Suppress the alleged 1989 confession Saldate claimed Milke gave him in an interview that lacked recording or any other witness.  
There are a lot of issues that demand testimony about that interview that would keep it out of any retrial.  That hearing is expected begin when the self-incrimination issue is resolved for now.
If Saldate is somehow forced to testify and the Motion to Suppress fails a second trial is expected sometime during 2015.  
Of course Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery could somehow find his soul and dismiss this nightmare once and for all.   
Below is the ruling by the AZ Court of Appeals:

Famed Film Director Bryan Singer Named in Lawsuit for Child Sexual Assault.

Film Director Bryan Singer
Los Angeles, CA—The civil complaint filed yesterday in the U.S. District Court of Hawaii  alleges that director Bryan Singer sexually assaulted Michael F. Eagan, III when he was only 14 or 15 on numerous occasions.  
Bryan Singer is a well-established A-List director and screen writer behind such projects as X-Men, Valkyrie, The Usual Suspects and Superman Returns. 
Alleged drug, alcohol fueled Gay sex parties between teens and adults are salaciously and vividly detailed in the civil court complaint.  The complaint also describes threats involving firearms and locking the young Egan inside of a gun safe.
Eagan is described as an aspiring male model and actor in the complaint. 
The complaint alleges numerous acts of mutual oral copulation and anal sex attacks by Singer on Eagan.  These deeds were to have taken place in California at the sprawling mansion owned by known child molester, registered sex offender, Digital Entertainment Network Founder and Chairman, Marc Collins-Rector and also at the mansion of famed hair products mogul Paul Mitchell in Kailua, Hawaii.
It is obvious from the complaint that Eagan never reported the crimes to any police agencies.  A search of the Internet Movie Database did not list a single film of TV project in Eagan’s name.  The only thing we know for sure are numerous criminal convictions against Marc Collins-Rector and some of the nefarious goings on at his mansion.
This complaint against Singer is about money first and foremost.  It appears that the evidence will consist of a swearing contest between Eagan and Singer.  The standard of proof in a civil court is much lower than in a criminal court.  Winning such a case in court however is never a sure thing.
Will Eagan be viewed as a sympathetic victim and not as a well-paid male prostitute?  Will Singer be painted with the brush of a convicted pedophile business associate, Marc Collins Rector?  These questions and their answers will determine how this plays out in court.
Singer’s lawyer was unavailable for comment to me just yet.  
Singer will need an aggressive defense strategy or face what might be the end of a very brilliant career.  Being Gay in the Hollywood entertainment industry is no liability these days.  Being viewed as a child rapist is an entirely different matter.   
Frankly, I learned long ago that if the details of a false allegation are widely published people that know the truth are more likely to cooperate with defense investigators.  I can only hope the gifted writer and director is not ruined by false allegations. 
The actual court complaint reads like a really bad X-Rated Gay film script but I posted it below.

So You Want to Learn How to use an Unmanned Aircraft, Helicopter, or Quadcopter in Los Angeles? Sergio of Pirofilprc in Van Nuys Will Help You!

Sergio Marachilian
Los Angeles, CA—a close friend that is a long time pilot for American Airlines and before that TWA turned me on to this new hobby.  I have always loved photography and photographers always want to get the best view and angle. 
Arial photography was nearly always out of the question because of the high costs involved.   There are other issues such as; helicopters can’t always get into tight spaces.  Helicopter crashes can be catastrophic but a mishap with the new generation quadcopters almost never causes injury or property damage.  These new drones seem to escape any significant damage should they crash into something! 
Modern brushless electric motors and advanced batteries have radically changed the remote control world.  A whole new Galaxy of model planes, boats, cars helicopters and quadcopters is here.  They once were toys really; they seemed to have little value beyond frivolous entertainment. Not anymore at least for people like me. 
Quadcopters are relatively easy to pilot.  This like the entire never-ending onslaught of new technology provides a learning curve and challenges that is always easier to overcome if you have the right kind of help.
A new generation of tiny Unmanned Arial Vehicles have arrived!  At almost at the same time great video and digital cameras have been made incredibly small and weigh little.  It was a marriage made in heaven!  Quadcopters and little cameras work so well together!  
I could not help myself; I just had to get one!  I went online and got mine fro B&H Photo in New York. They are a reputable outfit but helping you learn about the Blade 350 quadcopter is not one of their better qualities. 
Reading instruction manuals written by engineers with language issues along with the fact they are not nor have they ever been writers sometimes fails.  There are lots of instructional videos on YouTube.  Some of them are very good and others are not.   It can be a tough jungle to navigate alone.  I was suddenly in possession of a Blade 350 Quadcopter and a GoPro Hero3+ camera and I was chomping at the bit to get it in the air.
The day came in just after Christmas for the maiden flight of my little Blade 350 quadcopter. I found out there is a remote flying field in Van Nuys.  It’s a great place because of the wide-open space but also there are lots of people that share this hobby.  They help each other with technical problems and field repairs.  My airline pilot friend was with me but he has a different brand quadcopter and it powered up differently than mine.
Getting my little quadcopter in the air was a little tricky.  Most of the people around me were hesitant to hand out advice because of timing there were not that many Blade 350’s out on the street yet.  At the flying field someone pointed out a fellow to me and said, “That’s Sergio over there and he can help you! He owns a hobby shop!”
I went over to this gentleman and had to wait my turn to meet him.  He was something of a celebrity and most of the people either knew him or about him.  Sergio it turned out was the real deal.
I introduced my self to, Sergio Marachilian, the owner of Pirofilprc located at 16205 Victory Blvd, Van Nuys, CA.  His shop is just a few blocks from the flying field.  I told Sergio I needed help and he responded by helping me and quickly got my gizmo in the air handing the radio transmitter over to me.  I was suddenly flying!  Sergio was helping a total stranger that he knew bought his quadcopter from somebody else!  That was indeed very kind and generous!
I have visited Sergio’s shop now several times and no matter how busy he is, he’s incredibly helpful.  He takes his time with those customers that are beginners like me.  He is a born teacher.  Sergio has won me over as a customer in a big way.  This fellow has great people skills and is a savvy businessman.  Sergio knows that guys like me won’t be stealing all his time because they will become proficient in this technology.   They will continue patronize his shop for all their future needs. Additionally Sergio builds and rebuilds all manner of remote controlled devices.
If this hobby is for you and you’re in Van Nuys pay a visit to Sergio’s shop.  He’s also on the web at:

Some Important Tactical Lessons were Learned About Combatting Government Tyranny at the Bundy Ranch

Bundy Ranch, Nevada—About 80 miles Northeast of Las Vegas the scene was a cattle ranch and the sprawling rangeland around it.   On one side were BLM Rangers with battle gear and dogs.  Men and women trying to convince the rangers to leave them, the cattle and the ranch in peace occupied the other side.  Tensions were high as the rangers threatened to shoot the civilians.
Because the area is rural sources for water, prepared meals, ammunition was greatly limited.  The two sides had gathered ready for a very violent conflict. .
The Barack Obama worshiping network media did not want the nation seeing the heavy hand of their Messiah crushing a longtime cattle rancher and his supporters.  That would damage the carefully crafted image they created for him.  They will always avoid humiliating Obama at all cost.   However Social Media and some news organizations covered the resistance movement really well.
Because of Social Media, thousand of civilians understood that a rogue government was waging a terror and harassment campaign against a family under color of law.  Some of them traveled many miles at their own expense and personal risk to protect a targeted fellow American. 
For now the tyranny was halted.  I’m sure that Obama and his henchmen are fuming because of their humiliating failure.   The Second Amendment was exercised effectively and successfully. 
Both sides of the conflict understood that there was absolute resolve by the assembled resistance to begin bloody combat and that threated government agents.  I also suspect that those agents began questioning and perhaps balking at orders from the Whitehouse.  That too may have made a difference that, for now that ended the confrontation. 
Were the defenders of freedom properly prepared?  In this tactical exercise we could see how the raw power of government can quickly take steps against the population.  During this siege the government exercised their ability to quickly shut down cell-phone towers disrupting the civilian communications. 
The Whitehouse also ordered the FAA to declare a No Fly Zone so news agencies could not observe or report on the government siege with helicopters.  Government officials did not want murders civilians to be seen by the rest of the nation live on television.   This FAA No Fly Zone order certainly had nothing to do with public safety!  Entering restricted air space could easily result in a military response including the shooting down of aircraft.   It’s not some idle threat.  
The steps government thugs followed the current tactical blueprint of how they are prepared to deal with civilian resistance to the Obama Junta.  Our rogue government played their hand showing us those things we must expect.  We need not guess anymore what they might do.
We learned that Just having sufficient numbers makes the most important difference.  If you have the numbers pragmatism by the tyrants can rule your side.   
For the most part the government is generally able to control the immediate shipment of food, fuel and medical supplies to any area.  They can control most of but not all the electricity, natural gas, cell-phone communications and Internet. 
The need for water, water filtering material, solar power and generators for communication devices lights are a must.  Wilderness survival skills are second nature to most military veteran and hunters. 
To combat the communications cut off everyone needs to have inexpensive family service walkie-talkie radios available ant any Target, WalMart, Best Buy or for a secondary communication source.  They work for miles and that beats nothing.  There are also citizen’s band (CB) radios and Ham radios and the later can communicate globally.  There are also satellite telephones used mostly by sailors on the high seas were cell phone towers don’t exist. 
Getting overhead video of such scenes inside an FAA no fly zone is a snap these days with those new camera-drones no larger than a small pizza.  They are so small that they are very difficult to spot in the sky or take out by gunfire.  They can observe with HD video and report things that our rogue politicians want kept secret.   The drones are easy to fly and there are cheap versions coming in at less than $1,000.00. 
The use of American military and police against neighbors and relatives has a built-in fail-safe mechanism.  Those people all swear an oath the Constitution and not to any politician.   If they are real Americans they will be able to recognize unlawful orders and must disobey them.  
Unfortunately our government has thousands of armed contractors that function as well-paid mercenaries that take no oath.  The contractors know they will be able to rob, rape and murder unfettered during civil unrest.  We must demand laws be enacted that contractors are never permitted to perform military or police operations within American borders.
Today with Internet capability broadcasting live streaming video reports on the Internet direct from the scene of combat operations is relatively simple.  Of course the opposition will be monitoring the reports too.
The skinny on combat rifles is that the most common and popular combat rifles are ineffective for government resistance.  The .30X39 AK-47 round and the 5.56 MM M-4 platform rounds are carryover from close in jungle warfare in Viet Nam where no real armor was involved. 
Today’s modern military and police armor both for vehicles and body is rated to stop the 5.56 MM and .30X39.  However that armor is very vulnerable to penetration by common WWII rifle rounds such as the .30-06 and the .308.  Most American hunting rifles use the same or even larger rounds and can defeat the light armor, but those guns are greatly underrated these days because don’t look as mean.  I’ll take a 75 year old M-1 Garand over a M-16 anytime.  The FNFAL and M-14 are far superior to most of what our police and military uses.  
Political tyrants are in fact are always the ones pulling the triggers even more so than their thugs.  Whenever possible they should be tracked down and captured.  It’s impossible for them to order any military action if they are missing. 
The most important need is for absolute determination, resolve and courage to preserve our hard won liberty and freedom.

Go With Le Flow, a Film Review

Mariba Senckl (Jenny) and Lusia Wietzorek(Gabi)

Denis Aubert (Florian) and Roberta Bianchini (Tina)

Denis Aubert (Florian) and his Vespa
Los Angeles, CA—Many of my European friends are involved in filmmaking, acting and music.  Musician and film producer, Robyn Rosenkranz, recently contacted me.   She advised me that one of my Facebook friends; Gregor Marvel had a part in a film she produced in my favorite city, Berlin with her film director, screenwriter and musician husband, Michael Glover.
Rosenkranz invited me to a three-day "Blue Carpet" event in Los Angeles and that was enough for me!  I wanted to check out the film if for no other reason, I just like the excitement associated with film premiers.
Glover and Rosenkranz are themselves a study in grand adventure and risk-taking.  These two creative geniuses began in L.A. by selling all but their guitars and the clothes on their backs.   They booked one-way tickets to Europe.  Ever since, they’ve been giving concerts, selling CDs and now have five feature films under the name of Bright Blue Gorilla, behind them. 
The premier event began with a mixer and I was able to chat with some great kids that flew in from Berlin for this event and to take a tour while they were in the USA. 
The actual program began with a musical concert by this creative pair behind the entire event.  This was a really fun opening for their film, Go With Le Flow.
The film is set in beautiful Berlin with a somewhat heavy French influence.  It’s set in the Le Flo specialty store that peddles salami to its customers.  
The hero and shop owner is a character named Florian,  (Denis Aubert) who is both French and German.  Florian is a somewhat love-struck and confused soul who gets around Berlin’s landmarks via his Vespa motor scooter.  Aubert has a fun style that somehow reminds me of the late and great actor, Peter Sellers.
He thinks he is in love with one woman but poor Florian is in for some zany adventures as he clumsily pursues the object of his affection.  Of course there is another very delightful gal, Jenny (Marina Senckel) who loves Florian and also just happens to be his best friend but Florian is much too blind to notice.  I don’t want to put too many spoilers out there because you need to see this unfold yourself.
Glover’s writing is both very clever and hilarious.  The film is well shot with hand held cameras, which can be risky, however in this film it actually brought life to this movie putting the audience right there with the characters!
The film is subtitled in English.  That can be very tricky especially for a comedy.  Don’t ask me how Glover made it work so well considering he does not speak German!  None of the great gags were lost. 
The only thing I can say about this film is that it’s delightful fun!  The actors are well cast and they are all having fun and so will the audience.  The use of Berlin’s landmarks such as the Brandenburg Gate made me homesick for this great city and it’s people.
The film will be premiering through April 24, at the Downtown Independent located 251 S Main Street in downtown Los Angeles.  The special opening events will continue Saturday night and Sunday afternoon ((April 12 & 13)  The website with further information is at:
