Border agents seize $1M in ecstasy

BUFFALO, N. Y. — U. S. border agents at the Peace Bridge have seized $1 million in ecstasy hidden among bushels of blueberries in a transport truck bound for Florida.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers searched the truck Friday after it crossed the bridge to Buffalo.

During the course of an inspection, officers used gamma-ray technology to generate a high-resolution image of the truck’s contents, which revealed an anomaly in the roof of the truck’s sleeper cab.

Ten vacuum-sealed bags filled with 48,400 ecstasy tablets were found in the cab. “CBP’s non-intrusive inspection technology assists our officers in preventing terrorist weapons and contraband, including illegal drugs from entering our country while facilitating the orderly flow of legitimate trade and travel,” said James Engleman, CBP director of field operations in Buffalo.

Charged with importation and possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance is Leon Johnson, 41, of Brampton.   From the St. Catherine’s Standard

Obama and the Treatment of Terrorist Suspects

By Fred Burton and Ben West – from Stratfor.com

U.S. President Barack Obama signed an executive order Feb. 1 approving the continued use of renditions by the CIA. The order seems to go against Obama’s campaign promises to improve the image of the United States abroad, as renditions under the Bush administration had drawn criticism worldwide, especially from members of the European Union. The executive order does not necessarily mean that renditions and other tactics for dealing with terrorist suspects will proceed unchanged, however.

Obama came into office promising changes in the way the United States combats terrorism. One of these changes was a new emphasis on legal processes and a shift away from controversial methods of treating terrorist suspects, like rendition, harsh interrogation techniques and secret prisons. The Obama administration can and will roll back some of these tactics, as demonstrated by the president’s Jan. 22 order to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay. But some will continue.

Money? What Money?

By Alan Burkhart

I’ve been reading this morning that frugal Americans are hurting the economic recovery efforts by saving our money instead of spending it. Last time I checked, Americans were holding the line on spending because we don’t have nearly as much (if any) discretionary spending ability as before. Money is tight and times are hard.

What are we supposed to do? Shall I take the cash I’m holding for my next house payment and buy a new Nintendo? Shall I skip the water bill in favor of a couple of 12-packs of Miller Lite?

Here’s an idea: If the government and the various economic “experts” around the country think I need to go blow some money on consumer goods, then take that so-called stimulus money – from $800 to $900 billion depending on who you listen to – and send us all a nice tidy check. That’d get things rolling again a lot faster than spending $150 million on honeybee insurance or $650 million on government employees’ cars or $650 million for TV converter boxes.

According to what I’ve seen, just slightly over ten percent of the stimulus plan would actually have the potential of boosting the economy. The rest is nothing more than pet projects and pork. Is this the fiscal responsibility promised by Barack Obama? Is this the Change We Can Believe In? I was under the impression that Barack Obama was against wasteful spending and huge government debt. Oh, wait… I heard that in a campaign speech. I keep forgetting that campaign promises don’t count after the election. You’d think that after all these years I would know better.  More HERE

The Captain’s AMERICA Radio Show For Feb. 3rd

LISTEN HERE

Tune in today to hear ‘The New Media Journal’ Managing Editor, Frank Salvato join ‘The Captain’ as they point out the ‘PORK’ found in the
Economic Stimulous Package. What you will hear IS factually correct
and it will astound you!

Of course we have the latest from FOX News and follow up Frank
Salvato’s interview with Ryan Mauro from the Christian Action Network.
Ryan is a National Security Researcher and the founder of World
Threats.com

What you will hear from Ryan is factually correct and entails
discussion about Jamaat ul Fuqra, an Islamic Terrorist Group who has a
reported 35 facilities inside the United States…

This may seem unfathomable but the evidence is irrefutable as Sheik
Muburak Gilano professes on his Solders of Allah Video, “We are
fighting to destroy the enemy. We are dealing with evil at its roots
and its roots are in America,” says the Sheik…

This is MUST hearing for all those and especially those who ‘doubt’
that they ‘walk amongst us’…

Today’s show will wake your conscience up and hopefully you’ll realize
we can’t make ‘changes’ to our National and Homeland Security that
will make us any less vigilant in the fight against Global
Terrorism…

Get in on knowing what others won’t unless they tune in to hear “The
Captain’s AMERICA” Radio Show, heard around the World and across
America…

God Bless our brave Military men and women keeping all of us FREE and
SAFE!

‘The Captain’

Ex-Continental Express exec convicted

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The former president of Continental Express Inc. has been found guilty of defrauding the trucking company and its owner out of $872,000.

A federal jury acquitted Kelly Wooldridge of credit card fraud Thursday but convicted him of mail fraud conspiracy after hearing testimony for over a week, including descriptions from his co-defendant Todd Tiefel, the company’s former chief financial officer.

U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright will set a sentencing date after receiving a pre-sentence report in about two months. Wooldridge faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Continental Express was based in Little Rock but was sold in December to Celadon Trucking Services Inc. of Indianapolis, leading to the layoff of more than 250 employees.  More HERE

Punxsutawney Phil Sees Shadow

For those who follow Punxsutarney Phil and his winter predictions, he DID see his shadow this morning.

Six more weeks of winter.  Legend has it that if Phil emerges from his hole and sees his shadow, he returns to his abode to wait six weeks for warmer weather.

Then again, he could have emerged from his hole, saw the election results, which I am sure he hibernated through, and decided to just go back to bed.

Super Bowl Sunday

It is Super Bowl Sunday and while I am not a football fan and couldn’t tell you what team is playing who (although our friends at The Captain’s America will be attending today’s game in Florida), I always look forward to the ads….  Who can forget the Budweiser Frogs of years gone by.

This year, a YouTube search of Super Bowl ads brought a new Will Ferrell (yes, Talledega Nights Will Ferrell) movie, Land of the Lost.

For those of you too young to remember when cartoons came on only on Saturday mornings for a couple of hours (and only on three stations at that), here’s a glimpse into the original Land of the Lost:

Gotta love those cheesy 70s Saturday morning special effects!!!

Marijuana found inside concrete pipes

EL PASO, Texas — Customs officers found 957 pounds of marijuana hidden in a truckload of concrete pipes.

The 1993 International tractor trailer from Mexico was X-rayed at the Bridge of the Americas on Friday. The examination revealed anomalies in the cargo that turned out to be 816 packages of the drug, U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Rick Lopez told the El Paso Times.

Officers cut through the concrete pipes to find the marijuana packages encased inside.

CBP officials put the drugs value at $765,000 and said the case was still under investigation.  From Chron.com
