Subject: Col Harris is to be the new ATAG

In what will go down as one of the most imbecilic decisions in military history, we have learned that Col Harris is to be the new ATAG of the Ohio Army National Guard.

Harris is the man who was the brigade level commander (J-1) of the  Recruiting Command when the Sean Webb enlistment took place. Webb had been recruited for the OANG after spending a considerable amount of time in the Mansfield Correctional Facility.  In other words, HE WAS A CONVICT. This made him ineligible for enlistment per the enlistment criteria.

Rodney Tansill, who at the time was the Recruiting Commander, “ORDERED” the enlistment.  Rodney Tansill had the F.B.I. check on Webb in his possession TEN DAYS prior to the enlistment. I am asking the Inspector General of the United States Army to check the records at the Cleveland M.E.P.S to verify this.

The enlistment was made in order to make a certain number of recruits that would break the record  enlistments  number for the Cleveland Recruiting Company.

After the start of the new recruiting year, John Harris discharged Webb.  Harris had full knowledge that Webb was a convicted criminal at the time of his enlistment and he choose to look the other way.  The actions of Tansill and Harris are of the nature that is subject to court-martial.

If this promotion is made, it will be a slap in the face to every former, present, and future member of the Ohio Army National Guard.
It appears that this promotion is being made as a public relations plow and not based certainly on merit.  The TAG will be a female and the ATAG will be a black male.

Subject: COLONEL JOHN HARRIS-OHIO ARMY NATIONAL GUARD

We have learned that Colonel John Harris,  the current Chief of Staff, has an interesting story to tell.

It seems that when he was the Recruiting Commander back at the beginning of this century, he took  advantage of  a single mother and made her his  fuck toy. The soldier had been a technician down in J3 and got fired from that job.

Miraculously, she was hired for recruiting operations although she had no recruiting experience.  She went from a hourly   paid job to  active  duty job with no qualifications for that job.

Unless you count  the commander using her as fuck toy as a “qualification”.

1330 CST 24  November 2010

Late this afternoon we have learned from a very reliable source that  Colonel John Harris has until 31 December 2010 to resign or have charges filed on him.  That is the same day that Major Generals Wayt and Kambic are leaving.

I guess his wife’s real estate business will carry them through.  Now there is no doubt who wears the pants in that house.



If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him.

If he is in superior strength, evade him.

If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him.  Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant.

If he is taking his ease, give him no rest.

If his forces are united, separate them.

If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.

“SFC” ROBERT SHIBLEY


It has come to our attention that SFC Shibley has denied the accusations listed in this article.

http://colonel6.com/2010/12/27/ohio-army-national-guard-leadership-contacts-owner-of-gunsndolls-magazine/

It is incumbent upon the Adjutant General for the state of confusion, I mean the state of Ohio to appoint an AR 15-6 investigator to question SFC Shibley on this serious accusation and violation of law and regulation.  The 15-6 investigator need only ask SFC Shibley a few questions regarding the validity of this article then have him simply deny or confirm his answers on a sworn statement.

The 15-6 investigator can then request or demand in writing that proof of such conversation took place or be subject to punitive and compensatory damages for liable, including fines and/or prison under Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 2739.01 & ORC 2739.99.  Failure on behalf of the Ohio Army National Guard to act upon this information provided to them constitutes neglect of duty, conduct unbecoming an officer, failure to report and/or act upon information of a serious nature, concealing criminal acts from authorities, and accessory after the fact.

Remember Mr Interim Adjutant General Kambic, you must complete a “Serious Incident Report” (SIR) and send it to the Governor by close of business on the day the incident was reported.
SFC Shibley, this is some easy money for you.  Contact an attorney and tell him you never had this conversation with a GunsNDolls representative and that you wish to sue the magazine for libel and then contact your local prosecutor and have him/her prosecute as well.
Here is some more ammunition for your lawsuit:  YOU ARE A LIAR FOR DENYING THIS STORY IS NOT 100% ACCURATE.

Subject: Robert Shibley direct violation of HIPPA ACT concerning another soldier
What passes for “leadership”  of the emasculated Ohio Army National Guard had the nerve and/or stupidity to contact the  owner of Guns~N~Dolls

Magazine to discuss the mental health of another soldier.

This is a direct violation of the privacy afforded this soldier under HIPPA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), and is a prosecutable offense.

“SFC” (the key word is class)  Robert Shibley of the Ohio Army National Guard Recruiting Command discussed several issues within the recruiting command.  He not only agreed with Guns~N~Dolls that a specific soldier needed medical help,  but attempted to “make a deal” with  GUNS~N~Dolls Magazine regarding the medical attention needed by the soldier.

In exchange for  his name being  kept out of the Magazine,  he would ensure that the “command would get the soldier  the help they  needed” and that “No one would be going after the soldier”.

Mind you, this sorry son of a bitch attempted to “make this deal” at the exact same time that he knew the soldier was the subject of a court martial that was in process and that the soldier had not even been notified about.

While his name was kept from articles published in Guns~N~Dolls magazine as promised by the owner of the magazine,  the soldier never received the medical attention needed so urgently.

Unfortuantely for Shibley, he did not have such an “agreement” with Colonel Sixx.  Therefore, I feel it is my duty to report this violation of federal law to the Inspector General of the United States Army and to suggest to him that Shibley be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Again,  the soldier  became the  target of a courts martial without their  knowledge or the knowledge of the spouse of the soldier.  The spouse of the soldier works in the same building with Shibley.

Shibley did not even have the common decency that one human being should afford another.  He knew that this court martial was going on and did not say a single word to his fellow soldier.

The only concern “SFC”  Shibley seemed to have was that his  “good name” stay  intact concerning his promotion to 1SG.  That is one promotion that should never happen.

The plan, as laid out by Shibley  is to promote 1SG Vincent “Paper Ranger” Coleman to SGM, since he was the only person permitted to put a promotion packet together. Then the promotion list for 1SG was tp be rigged so that Shibley would be the next 1SG for the Cleveland area.

He even found it amusing that we had the complete information on the “Webb” enlistment.  “O  you guys know about that” as he laughed.

The preceeding week during his trip to  Chicago,  he bragged to the rest of the leadership in the Ohio Army National Guard recruiting command about his plan.

This took place as they laughed and giggled about abuse of women  and other stories regarding the Ohio Army National Guard.

I ask that the Inspector General of the United States Army consider the follwowing:

Penalties Under HIPAA

42USC1320d-5 General penalty for failure to comply with requirements and standards

(a) General penalty

(1) In general Except as provided in subsection (b), the Secretary shall impose on any person who violates a provision of this part a penalty of not more than $100 for each such violation, except that the total amount imposed on the person for all violations of an identical requirement or prohibition during a calendar year may not exceed $25,000. * * *

(1) uses or causes to be used a unique health identifier; (2) obtains individually identifiable health information relating to an individual; or (3) discloses individually identifiable health information to another person, shall be punished as provided in subsection (b).

(b) Penalties

(1) be fined not more than $50,000, imprisoned not more than 1 year, or both; (2) if the offense is committed under false pretenses, be fined not more than $100,000, imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both; and (3) if the offense is committed with intent to sell, transfer, or use individually identifiable health information for commercial advantage, personal gain, or malicious harm, be fined not more than $250,000, imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both.

Baby Boomers Start To Turn 65: 16 Statistics About The Coming Retirement Crisis That Will Drop Your Jaw


Do you hear that rumble in the distance?  That is the Baby Boomers – they are getting ready to retire.  On January 1st, 2011 the very first Baby Boomers turn 65.

Millions upon millions of them are rushing towards retirement age and they have been promised that the rest of us are going to take care of them.  Only there is a huge problem. We don’t have the money.  It simply isn’t there.

But the millions of Baby Boomers getting ready to retire are counting on that money to be there.  This all comes at a really bad time for a federal government that is already flat broke and for a national economy that is already teetering on the brink of disaster.

So just who are the Baby Boomers?  Well, they are the most famous generation in American history.  The U.S. Census Bureau defines the Baby Boomers as those born between January 1st, 1946 and December 31st, 1964.  You see, after U.S. troops returned from World War II, they quickly settled down and everyone started having lots and lots of babies.  This gigantic generations has transformed America as they have passed through every stage of life. Now they are getting ready to retire.

If you add 65 years to January 1st, 1946 you get January 1st, 2011.

The moment when the first Baby Boomers reach retirement age has arrived.

The day of reckoning that so many have talked about for so many years is here.

Today, America’s elderly are living longer and the cost of health care is rising dramatically.  Those two factors are going to make it incredibly expensive to take care of all of these retiring Baby Boomers.

Meanwhile, the sad truth is that the vast majority of Baby Boomers have not adequately saved for retirement.  For many of them, their home equity was destroyed by the recent financial crisis.  For others, their 401ks were devastated when the stock market tanked.

Meanwhile, company pension plans across America are woefully underfunded.  Many state and local government pension programs are absolute disasters.  The federal government has already begun to pay out more in Social Security benefits than they are taking in, and the years ahead look downright apocalyptic for the Social Security program.

If we are not careful all of these Baby Boomers are going to push us into national bankruptcy.  We simply cannot afford all of the promises that we have made to them.  The following are 16 statistics about the coming retirement crisis that will drop your jaw…..

#1 Beginning January 1st, 2011 every single day more than 10,000 Baby Boomers will reach the age of 65.  That is going to keep happening every single day for the next 19 years.

#2 According to one recent survey, 36 percent of Americans say that they don’t contribute anything at all to retirement savings.

#3 Most Baby Boomers do not have a traditional pension plan because they have been going out of style over the past 30 years.  Just consider the following quote from Time MagazineThe traditional pension plan is disappearing. In 1980, some 39 percent of private-sector workers had a pension that guaranteed a steady payout during retirement. Today that number stands closer to 15 percent, according to the Employee Benefit Research Institute in Washington, D.C.

#4 Over 30 percent of U.S. investors currently in their sixties have more than 80 percent of their 401k invested in equities.  So what happens if the stock market crashes again?

#5 35% of Americans already over the age of 65 rely almost entirely on Social Security payments alone.

#6 According to another recent survey, 24% of U.S. workers admit that they have postponed their planned retirement age at least once during the past year.

#7 Approximately 3 out of 4 Americans start claiming Social Security benefits the moment they are eligible at age 62.  Most are doing this out of necessity.  However, by claiming Social Security early they get locked in at a much lower amount than if they would have waited.

#8 Pension consultant Girard Miller recently told California’s Little Hoover Commission that state and local government bodies in the state of California have $325 billion in combined unfunded pension liabilities.  When you break that down, it comes to $22,000 for every single working adult in California.

#9 According to a recent report from Stanford University, California’s three biggest pension funds are as much as$500 billion short of meeting future retiree benefit obligations.

#10 It has been reported that the $33.7 billion Illinois Teachers Retirement System is 61% underfundedand is on the verge of complete collapse.

#11 Robert Novy-Marx of the University of Chicago and Joshua D. Rauh of Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management recently calculated the combined pension liability for all 50 U.S. states.  What they found was that the 50 states are collectively facing $5.17 trillion in pension obligations, but they only have $1.94 trillion set aside in state pension funds.  That is a difference of 3.2 trillion dollars.  So where in the world is all of that extra money going to come from?  Most of the states are already completely broke and on the verge of bankruptcy.

#12 According to the Congressional Budget Office, the Social Security system will pay out more in benefits than it receives in payroll taxes in 2010.  That was not supposed to happen until at least 2016.  Sadly, in the years ahead these “Social Security deficits” are scheduled to become absolutely horrific as hordes of Baby Boomers start to retire.

#13 In 1950, each retiree’s Social Security benefit was paid for by 16 U.S. workers.  In 2010, each retiree’s Social Security benefit is paid for by approximately 3.3 U.S. workers.  By 2025, it is projected that there will be approximately two U.S. workers for each retiree.  How in the world can the system possibly continue to function properly with numbers like that?

#14 According to a recent U.S. government report, soaring interest costs on the U.S. national debt plus rapidly escalating spending on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare will absorb approximately 92 cents of every single dollar of federal revenue by the year 2019.  That is before a single dollar is spent on anything else.

#15 After analyzing Congressional Budget Office data, Boston University economics professor Laurence J. Kotlikoff concluded that the U.S. government is facing a “fiscal gap” of $202 trillion dollars.  A big chunk of that is made up of future obligations to Social Security and Medicare recipients.

#16 According to a recent AARP survey of Baby Boomers, 40 percent of them plan to work “until they drop”.

Companies all over America have been dropping their pension plans in anticipation of the time when the Baby Boomers would retire.  401k programs were supposed to be part of the answer, but if the stock market crashes again, it is absolutely going to devastate the Baby Boomers.

State and local governments are scrambling to find ways to pay out all the benefits that they have been promising.  Many state and local governments will be forced into some very hard choices by the hordes of Baby Boomers that will now be retiring.

Of course whenever a big financial crisis comes along these days everyone looks to the federal government to fix the problem.  But the truth is that after fixing crisis after crisis the federal government is flat broke.

At our current pace, the Congressional Budget Office is projecting that U.S. government public debt will hit 716 percent of GDP by the year 2080.

But our politicians just keep spending money.  In order to pay the Baby Boomers what they are owed the federal government may indeed go into even more debt and have the Federal Reserve print up a bunch more money.

So in the end, Baby Boomers may get most of what they are owed.  Of course it may be with radically devalued dollars.  Already we are watching those on fixed incomes being devastated by the rising cost of food, gas, heat and health care.

What is going to happen one day when prices have risen so much that the checks that our seniors are getting are not enough to heat their homes?

What are we going to do when those on fixed incomes are buying dog food because it is all that they can afford?

We are rapidly reaching a tipping point.  As the first Baby Boomers retire the system is going to do okay.  But as millions start pouring into the system it is going to start breaking down.

No, there is not much that we can do about it now.  We should have been planning for all of this all along.  Americans should have been saving for retirement and governments should have been setting money aside.

But it didn’t happen.

Now we pay the price.

 

Mandatory DUI Checkpoint Blood Tests Coming to Florida


 

Authorities call it “no refusal.” In Florida, at the unconstitutional DUI checkpoints set-up for revenue enhancement and to get citizens into the legal and prison system, the government will soon force drivers to take blood tests.

“Florida is among several states now holding what are called ‘no refusal’ checkpoints,” reportsWTSP in Tampa Bay. “It means if you refuse a breath test during a traffic stop, a judge is on site, and issues a warrant that allows police to perform a mandatory blood test.”

In other words, if you believe this sort of thing is illegal and you refuse, the cops will force a needle in your arm. The state will use violence in order to violate the Fourth Amendment.

In 1990, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that the Fourth Amendment does not permit DUI checkpoints and overturned a DUI case, but when the case went to the United States Supreme Court it was decided there is something called the “DUI Exception,” a legal excuse to violate the Bill of Rights.

In addition, it was decided by the Supremes that if you are arrested for DUI, the cops don’t have to recite your Miranda rights. DUI is a legal no-man’s land.

Florida has the Supreme Court on its side. In 2005, the hand-picked “justices” ruled that it is not unconstitutional for the state to hold you down and forcefully withdraw blood.

Most states do not use violence to compel drivers to submit their blood, however. They just take away your license, even if you are found not guilty of drunk driving. Other states add prison time to DUI convictions for the crime of refusing to allow the state to violate the Fourth Amendment.

This abrogation of the Constitution is being pushed on the states by the federal government.Section 163 of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) created incentive grants for states enacting and enforcing unconstitutional DUI laws.

In addition to swelling prisons, DUI laws are designed to fleece victims. “Sobriety checkpoints in California are increasingly turning into profitable operations for local police departments that are far more likely to seize cars from unlicensed motorists than catch drunken drivers,”Ryan Gabrielson wrote in February.

In 2009 in California, impounds at checkpoints generated an estimated $40 million in towing fees and police fines. Additionally, police officers received about $30 million in overtime pay for the DUI crackdowns, funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety.

Florida and 43 other states are not above violating the Constitution in order to fill their coffers. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court stands behind them. It is all part of the ongoing effort to strip us of our natural rights and trash the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

US military sexual abuse detailed in new report


US troops have been involved in a multiplicity of sexual abuse complaints according to a new report. 

Statistics and testimonies from military personnel have revealed that sexual assaults recur with each new intake of soldiers.

Over 3,230 complaints were recorded in 2009 according to the US Department of Defence.

The report says there was an 11 percent increase in sexual assaults in fiscal 2009 compared to the previous year.

The report claims one in every three women complains about being sexually assaulted while serving in the US military.

The US Department of Veterans Affairs has confirmed that sexual abuse happens in the US military at rates twice that of the civilian average, meaning women who join the military are more likely to be raped by a fellow American soldier than they are of being killed by enemy fire.

Parole Stipulation: Donate a Kidney to Your Sister


http://colonel6.com/2010/12/25/jailed-for-11-sisters-locked-up-16-years-in-dirty-south-injustice/

 

COLONEL SIXX: THIS IS THE MOST BLATANT RACIST BULLSHITTHAT I HAVE EVER SEEN.  ALL STATE OFFICALS SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES. TODAY, I WISH I HAD NEVER ATTENDED OLE MISS.

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — For 16 years, sisters Jamie and Gladys Scott have shared a life behind bars for their part in an $11 armed robbery. To share freedom, they must also share a kidney.

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour suspended the sisters’ life sentences on Wednesday, but 36-year-old Gladys Scott’s release is contingent on her giving a kidney to Jamie, her 38-year-old sister, who requires daily dialysis.

The sisters were convicted in 1994 of leading two men into an ambush in central Mississippi the year before. Three teenagers hit each man in the head with a shotgun and took their wallets – making off with only $11, court records said.

Jamie and Gladys Scott were each convicted of two counts of armed robbery and sentenced to two life sentences.

“I think it’s a victory,” said the sisters’ attorney, Chokwe Lumumba. “I talked to Gladys and she’s elated about the news. I’m sure Jamie is, too.”

Civil rights advocates have for years called for their release, saying the sentences were excessive. Those demands gained traction when Barbour asked the Mississippi Parole Board to take another look at the case.

The Scott sisters are eligible for parole in 2014, but Barbour said prison officials no longer think they are a threat to society and Jamie’s medical condition is costing the state a lot of money.

Lumumba said he has no problem with the governor requiring Gladys to offer up her organ because “Gladys actually volunteered that as part of her petition.”

Lumumba said it’s not clear what caused the kidney failure, but it’s likely a combination of different illnesses over the years.

Barbour spokesman Dan Turner told The Associated Press that Jamie Scott was released because she needs the transplant. He said Gladys Scott will be released if she agrees to donate her kidney because of the significant risk and recovery time.

“She wanted to do it,” Turner said. “That wasn’t something we introduced.”

Barbour is a Republican in his second term who has been mentioned as a possible presidential contender in 2012. He said the parole board agreed with the indefinite suspension of their sentences, which is different from a pardon or commutation because it comes with conditions.

An “indefinite suspension of sentence” can be reversed if the conditions are not followed, but those requirements are usually things like meeting with a parole officer.

The Scott sisters have received significant public support from advocacy groups, including the NAACP, which called for their release. Hundreds of people marched through downtown Jackson from the state capital to the governor’s mansion in September, chanting in unison that the women should be freed.

Still, their release won’t be immediate.

Mississippi Department of Corrections Commissioner Chris Epps said late Wednesday that he had not received the order. He also said the women want to live with relatives in Florida, which requires approval from officials in that state.

In general, that process takes 45 days.

Mississippi NAACP President Derrick Johnson said the Scott sisters’ release will be “a great victory for the state of Mississippi for two individuals who received an excessive sentence” and he has no problem with the kidney donation requirement because Gladys Scott volunteered.

“I think it‘s encouraging that she’s willing to share a kidney so her sister can have a better quality life,” Johnson said.

National NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous said the suspension of the sentences represents the good that can come with the power of governors.

“It’s again proof that when people get engaged, keep the faith, we can win,” Jealous said.

Barbour has used his power sparingly to free prisoners over the years, but some of his decisions have created a backlash.

Barbour outraged the family and friends of Jean Elizabeth Gillies, a University of Mississippi student who was raped, sodomized and strangled in 1986, when he granted a suspended sentence for her killer, Douglas Hodgkin.
