To serve and protect? Slain Utah athlete repeatedly called school, Salt Lake City police about harasser

A primate example of why you cannot rely on anyone but yourself for your personal safety. A good reason to believe in the Second Amendment and exercise that right.

From Yahoo: Lauren McCluskey, the 21-year-old Utah track athlete who was abducted outside her Salt Lake City dorm and killed in October, had called both University of Utah police and Salt Lake City police multiple times to report her attacker’s harassment before her death, according to 911 calls obtained by CNN.

McCluskey was found dead in a parked car on campus on October 23 shortly after she had an argument outside of her residence hall with 37-year-old Melvin Rowland. McCluskey and Rowland had met in a bar in September and dated for about a month, per the report, before McCluskey learned that he was a convicted sex offender and had lied about his age and name. Rowland spent more than a decade in prison, was released on parole three times, and violated his parole and returned to prison twice. He killed himself hours after McCluskey’s death following a police chase.

McCluskey ended the relationship on October 9, blocked all communication from him and his friends, and even had university police accompany her to retrieve her car, which she had let him borrow. Rowland, though, wouldn’t leave her alone.

Over the next two weeks, according to CNN, McCluskey called University of Utah police multiple to report the harassment and an attempted extortion. She told police that she sent him $1,000 “in hopes of keeping compromising photos of her private.”

However McCluskey had grown frustrated at a lack of progress by university police, who she felt weren’t doing enough to stop Rowland, and started calling Salt Lake City police.

“I’m worried because I’ve been working with the campus police at the U, and last Saturday I reported and I haven’t gotten an update,” McCluskey told Salt Lake City police in a call to 911, via CNN. “They haven’t updated or done anything.”

She first called Salt Lake City police on October 13 after she had been blackmailed for money, per the report. They, though, advised her to call university police instead. When she called them a week later, they told her the same thing.

“I’ve contacted them already, I just wanted to talk to you as well,” McCluskey said in a call to 911, via CNN. “Yeah, I was just concerned because I wasn’t sure how long they were gonna take.”

University police conducted an internal review after her death, which the university said was not the result of any individual mistakes. The review also found university officers didn’t know how to look up criminal background or parole information.

“The review team’s report identified gaps in training, awareness and enforcement of certain policies rather than lapses in individual performance,” the university said, via CNN.

Her parents disputed the university’s report shortly after it was released. “There were numerous opportunities to protect her during the almost two weeks between the time when our daughter began expressing repeated, elevating, and persistent concerns about her situation and the time of her murder,” Jill and Matthew McCluskey wrote.

#WarOnWomen: Quentin Tarantino signs on actor who assaulted female executive for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood"

emile hirsch

Convicted offender Hirsch (l) and Tarantino with his buddy Weinstein (r)


Quentin Tarantino wrote and is directing a new movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which is due out August 2019. About the movie, from IMDb:
“A TV actor and his stunt double embark on an odyssey to make a name for themselves in the film industry during the Charles Manson murders in 1969 Los Angeles.”
You know who was murdered? Shannon Tate, who was 8 ½ months pregnant at the time of her grisly murder.
Now, 49 years later, Quentin Tarantino feels the need to make yet another movie about these horrific murders.
Here’s a list of some of the better-known actors who have signed on for this movie:

  • Brad Pitt
  • Margot Robbie
  • Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Dakota Fanning
  • Kurt Russell
  • Al Pacino
  • Luke Perry
  • Burt Reynolds
  • Emile Hirsch

That last name may not be familiar to you. I’ve never heard of him.
Emile Hirsch has a past of assaulting a woman. Here’s what I found out about Mr. Hirsch, from Wikipedia:
“Emile Davenport Hirsch (born March 13, 1985) is an American actor. He starred in Into the Wild (2007) and the A&E network simulcast miniseries Bonnie & Clyde (2013). Other films include The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys (2002), The Girl Next Door (2004), Lords of Dogtown (2005), Alpha Dog (2006), Speed Racer (2008), Milk (2008), The Darkest Hour (2011), The Motel Life (2012), Lone Survivor (2013), and Vincent N Roxxy (2016).
On February 12, 2015, Hirsch was charged with aggravated assault after initiating an altercation with, and then strangling, Paramount Pictures executive Daniele Bernfeld on January 25, 2015 at the Tao Nightclub in Park City, Utah. On August 17, 2015, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault, and was sentenced to 15 days in jail. He was also fined $4,750, received 90 days of probation, and ordered to undergo 50 hours of community service.”
Apparently Hirsch was intoxicated at a party and doesn’t remember grabbing Daniele from behind, throwing her to the floor and putting her in a chokehold until she blacked out. It took two men to remove Hirsch from his victim.
Fun Fact: Quentin Tarantino knew of Harvey Weinstein’s bad behavior. Back in October 2017 he said the following (from USA Today):
“Quentin Tarantino has spoken out on his longtime and close working relationship with producer Harvey Weinstein, acknowledging that he’s ashamed he was aware of some of Weinstein’s abhorrent acts but did not take a stand against them.
“I knew enough to do more than I did,” the director told The New York Times in an interview published Thursday.
Tarantino cited several Weinstein episodes involving prominent actresses. 
“There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said. “I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard.”
So a man (Tarantino) who ignored Weinstein’s behavior has signed on a convicted assault offender (Hirsch) to star in a movie about the murder of a pregnant woman?
Another Hollyweird movie I won’t be seeing.

Mom has toddlers go potty at restaurant table

It is said that when a society loosens its code of morality and ethics, it begins a downward spiral into “anything goes” incivility and depravity.

Sociologists have a fancy word for the phenomenon: anti-nomianism. The Left call it “moral relativism” — which means there’s no transcendent moral good or bad; what’s good or bad is that which is good or bad for me. Both anti-nomianism and moral relativism refer to the same thing — the absence of common norms and standards governing human behavior.

Here’s a shocking and grotesque example of what anti-nomianism leads to.

An apparently sane woman diner in a Utah restaurant had her twin daughters go potty right there at the table.

As reported by Snejana Farberov for the UK’s Daily Mail, Sept 5, 2012, Kimberly Decker was having lunch at the popular Thanksgiving Point Deli in Lehi, Utah, when she witnessed the incident at a nearby table.

“I noticed that this lady was having her two…twins, two little girls about two-and-a-half years old, sitting on what I thought were booster seats,” Decker told the station KSL.

But after taking a closer look, Decker realized the “booster seats” were child port-a-potties. The mother had her twin girls use portable bathrooms as they ate in the crowded restaurant.

Decker said the mother “had to undo the [toddlers] jumpsuits, and take them all the way down so they were completely nude, with the jumpsuits down to their ankles just eating their chicken nuggets, sitting on little toddler potties.”

Decker took a picture and posted it on Facebook.

Thanksgiving Point spokeswoman Erica Brown said they received several complaints from patrons who had witnessed the unsavory scene. But the eatery’s staff did not realize what was happening in the dining room until it was all over. Brown said they would have asked the mother to leave and take the potty training into the restroom because “I think state and local health codes were probably an issue, as well as just social norms.”

The spokeswoman “thinks” kids going potty smack-dab in the middle of the restaurant is a state and local health code “issue”?

Good grief. Our world has gone mad….

“During the next hundred years, the question for those who love liberty is whether we can survive the most insidious and duplicitous attacks from within, from those who undermine the virtues of our people, doing in advance the work of the Father of Lies. ‘There is no such thing as truth,’ they teach even the little ones. ‘Truth is bondage. Believe what seems right to you. There are as many truths as there are individuals. Follow your feelings. Do as you please. Get in touch with your self. Do what feels comfortable.’ Those who speak in this way prepare the jails of the twenty-first century. They do the work of tyrants.”Michael Novak

Breaking News- Murder Charges Dropped Against Late Term Abortionists

A Maryland prosecutor on Tuesday dropped murder charges against two doctors accused of performing late-term abortions on fetuses that could have lived outside the womb, in a case that drew national attention as a test of fetal homicide law.
In December, 2011, Cecil County, Maryland State’s Attorney Ellis Rollins brought murder charges against Drs. Nicola Riley and Steven Brigham.
But on Tuesday, Rollins said a medical expert who had originally offered his opinion that a late-term abortion performed by the doctors in 2010 was in Maryland, now said he was not sure whether it was in Maryland or New Jersey.
The case was the first time Maryland’s fetal homicide law was applied to doctors, who are provided with an exception.  Full Story

And on the seventh day God rested


God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found Him resting on the seventh day.
He inquired, “Where have you been?”
God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, “Look, Michael. Look what I’ve made.”
Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, “What is it?”
“It’s a planet,” replied God, “and I’ve put life on it. I’m going to call it Earth and it’s going to be a place to test Balance.”
“Balance?” inquired Michael, “I’m still confused.”
God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth.
“For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I’ve placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things.”
God continued pointing to different countries. “This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice.”
The Archangel, impressed by God’s work, then pointed to a land area and said, “What’s that one?”
“That’s Utah, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, the ocean, lakes, forests, hills and plains. The people from Utah are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace and producers of good things.”
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, “But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance.”
God smiled, “Right across from Utah is Washington, D.C. Wait till you see the idiots I put there.”

Join Oath Keepers and Support Operation Sleeping Giant


You DO NOT have to be prior service to join as an associate member. We encourage all patriotic, liberty loving Americans to join us and assist in our mission.
Operation Sleeping Giant
America’s veterans truly are like a sleeping giant. It is time to awaken them and fill them with a terrible resolve to defeat the domestic enemies of our Constitution and their internationalist fellow travelers. The time has come to restore our Republic. The hour is late, and our Constitution hangs by a thread. If we wake the veterans up, this Republic will be saved. If we don’t, this Republic will fall. It’s as simple as that.
Time is short, and we must get the veterans to focus on:
Food, fuel, emergency medical, and communications security
and independence (and general preparedness) –
as individuals, within local veterans organization chapters, neighborhood mutual aid societies, churches, co-ops, farmers markets, and at the town, county and state levels. As a start, follow the advice onhttps://www.providentliving.org/
(you don’t need to be LDS to learn from their experience in food storage and preparedness, or to use their canning facilities). Grow gardens. Support your local farmers. Fight any regulation that would limit your ability to grow your own food. Why is food first? Because it is the hardest to improvise, and it is a great weakness of modern man, who, with few exceptions, no longer stores up for bad times. Ditto for fuel and medical supplies. And when it comes to communications, we must have in place an alternative system, such as HAM Radio, so if/when the internet comes down (or is taken down) we can still communicate (for example, if each VFW Hall had a HAM Radio, that would provide a state-wide network).Physical security and Independence
– again as individuals, neighborhoods, veterans organization chapters, towns, counties and states, to include forming neighborhood watches; mutual aid associations; a volunteer sheriff’s posse (staffed by self-supplied volunteers but under direct command of the sheriff); and county militias established by county ordinances but staffed by self-supplied and self-funded volunteers (as is done in volunteer fire departments all over this nation); state defense forces under command of the governor; and ultimately, a true state militia, established by state statute, capable of “repelling invasions” (using the research and model bills of Dr. Edwin Vieira). As for training, a great first step for the newbie or for those who are rusty would be to attend the Project Appleseed rifle instruction program, offered for a pittance in every state by traveling volunteer instructors. Seewww.appleseedinfo.org
for details.Economic security and independence –
as individuals and communities, including barter networks, use of silver and gold as real money, and sound money bills at the county and state levels (as Utah just passed). This would also include each of us having a “liberty trade” – something you can do even in a very localized, back-to-basics economy, and we must support and build resilient local economies that can weather hard times. We must have an alternative to the fiat money system in place when it collapses, so we can resist what the globalists have in store for us next. Seewww.alt-market.com
