Officer Steve Ermis and his supervisor Sergeant Minnicks of the Temple Police Dept in TX, have really stepped in it.
They arrested Army Master Sgt. Christopher J. Grisham who was on a 10 mile hike with his 15 year old son, fulfilling an Eagle scout requirement.
Someone had reported “suspicious” armed people to the cops, and this caused Officer Ermis to disarm and arrest Sgt. Grisholm in the sight of his son, who was operating a camera. Readers can see a video of the entire event HERE.
The Blaze is carrying a more detailed account.
Seargeant Grisholm has had charges reduced from resisting arrest (because he didn’t) to a misdemeanor charge which essentially corresponds to talking too much while being arrested. His guns, which were not carried illegally nor unsafely, have not yet been returned to him. Grisholm mentions that his arrest was on March 16, 2013, five “days after he urged the Temple City Council to declare that citizen rights to keep and bear arms will not be infringed“.
You know how much members of the military make, so check out Grisholm’s legal fund HERE. to defend 2nd amendment rights, to spank these keystone Temple cops for arresting him, taking his guns, and for detaining his son illegally for interrogation.

Dr. Suzanna Hupp lost her parents in the Luby massacre in Texas in 1991, and has been a concealed carry advocate ever since. She unfortunately had not been carrying on the fateful day she was in the restaurant with her parents. The video below (a classic!) is her original testimony before Congress a couple of years after the event. Go HERE to see a C-span video of her more recent testimony this past Monday.
Eddie Ray Routh is being held as the prime suspect in the shooting death of famed Navy Seal Sniper, Chris Kyle, and one other veteran, Chad Littlefield, at a charity event held at Rough Creek Lodge Shooting Range in Texas. The two victims were killed at point blank at about 3:30, and the suspect, said to have fled in Kyle’s truck, was apprehended hours later in Lancaster, TX. Routh is said to have been a marine, with the media providing his impetus for the shooting as post traumatic stress disorder.
Chris Kyle served with Navy Seal Team 3, completing four tours of duty in Iraq, for which he was awarded numerous military honors. He is regarded as the U.S. Military’s most prolific sniper. Since leaving the military, he headed a private firm, Craft International, which provided private security and sniper instruction for law enforcement and military. A co-founder of FITCO Cares Foundation, Kyle was involved in numerous charities and spent much of his spare time assisting disabled veterans.
After surviving two previous shootings, and six IED explosions, Chris Kyle met his untimely death at age 39, at the hands of a fellow service veteran. He leaves behind his wife and two children.
Readers who want to understand the mind and career of Chris Kyle can check out his recently released best selling book, American Sniper.
Democrats everywhere appear to be acknowledging that their party is distinctly dissociated from Bible teaching.
That’s the only reason why Kay Hill would be denied the right to vote at Taylor City Hall in Williamson County, Texas. She wore a T shirt proclaiming ‘VOTE THE BIBLE’ to the polling place. Officials there told her that she would have to cover the shirt in order to vote, since it was considered electioneering.
Note that, Democrats. “Vote the Bible” now distinctly means Don’t Vote Democrat, due to the changes in that party’s platform and ideology.
Kay Hill covered her shirt and fortunately was able to vote. She’ll be pursuing this further with the TX Secretary of State’s office. Perhaps we’ll learn how many more times the Democrat party will admit that Vote the Bible means Don’t Vote Democrat.
Michelle Obama tells us to vote early because something could come up on election day, for example your “toilet overflowing”.
Apparently our government thinks we should vote often, since it contests the state voter ID laws, with Texas being just one example.
It also is tearing down billboards which admonish people to obey existing election laws.
Oddly, the only early voting that the Obama administration seems to oppose is that of the military, which needs this opportunity the most.
Mary Gonzales used to be just a regular old lesbian, but now this former Texas State Rep advertizes as “Pansexual”. That means any warm body will do, doesn’t matter what sex it is, or what sexual identity it assumes at the moment, or how much surgical alteration has occurred. Gonzales will take ‘em all.
Pharmer guesses that it’s kind of like having beer goggles on….. all day long! Every morning after is a surprise!
Ted Cruz, a Tea Party candidate who has never held political office, beat Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, in a primary runoff election for the senate seat in Texas. This is quite an costly upset for the OLD Republicans, and another sign of surging Tea Party strength. This second runoff resulted because David Dewhurst was unable to garner 50 percent of the vote in the regular primary.
A Shiner, Texas father is the talk of the country for beating to death a man who was sexually assaulting his four year old daughter.
At the Stir, they’re generating hits by discussing what this man should have done, after the fact.
Given the available information, Pharmer would judge the father as neither a hero nor criminal. Paternal instincts took over, and he beat the man whom he observed assaulting his daughter. The ‘pedophile’ died of his injuries.
The Dad has to live with having seen a horrible thing done to his daughter, and with taking the ‘molester’s’ life during the act of stopping the assault.
(Incidentally, if this man had shot the molester once with a gun and killed him, there would not be the endless discussion of how many times he should have been allowed to hit the perp.)
Fortunately Texas law is reasonable with respect to self defense, and is not likely to add further misery to this family’s life.
Updates: The girl’s age has been corrected to five years. More details on the incident are HERE. Further evidence affirms that the girl was being raped.
News that the father will not be tried for murder is HERE, and remarkably the media is restraining itself from identifying the father and daughter in the case, or trying to turn it into a race war.
Seventeen year old Diane Tran, who appears not to need to attend classes to keep her grades up, was sentenced to jail and fined for repeated truancy, by Montgomery Republican judge Lanny Moriarity. She is said to be working two jobs, and helping to support siblings, after her parents divorced suddenly and apparently bailed out on the kids.
Likely no one knows the whole story of this family.
Lanny Moriarity ran in 2010 unopposed in his district in Montgomery County. Yes he is a Republican. The Teaparty could send a primary challenger to make his life interesting in the next election cycle.
Moriarity is, at best, a lazy judge. He apparently encountered Diane Tran’s case more than once (a prior warning is mentioned) and did not investigate the cause of her truancy for 2 minutes. Much more time had to have been spent on the paperwork than consideration of the case.
This kind of use of the legal system leads very motivated and talented young people to develop disrespect and hatred of authority and government.
On Monday U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel ordered a Texas to resume paying planned parenthood while the challenge to its law defunding abortion providers is being considered in federal court. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals promptly stayed Yeakel’s order, and the policy will resume. This cuts $17 million in funding to Planned Parenthood, while the case is being decided.
It would probably help if Legitimate health care facilities understood how their medical waste disposal service operates.
Stericycle, based in Illinois, is in hot water for improper disposal of human fetuses killed at a pair of Texas abortion clinics.
It seems that there was no problem with Stericycle’s steam disinfection method, but in Texas, the medical “waste” (containing little corpses in various states of dismemberment) is supposed to be buried……. NOT thrown in a municipal landfill.
Stericycle has been fined 42,612 for failure to comply with the regulations.
Whole Woman’s Health Clinics in Austin and McAllen are paying up also, a total of about $40,000 between them. They’re placing the blame on Stericycle of course.
Take home information: Pharmer knows that a LOT of hospitals and clinics employ Stericycle to dispose of their medical waste. People who have miscarriages might want to bear this in mind, if respectful treatment of the body is a concern.
“Motive is not really the primary point right now,” Dearing said. “It’s more along the lines of what happened, how it transpired and making sure that who we believe to be the shooter is the shooter. Motive is what comes afterward for us if we can get it.”
Why is the motive for so many other crimes considered so important that it increases the penalty?
What diminishes the media curiosity about the motives for the complete erasure of two families in Grapevine, TX? Even though the shooter, Aziz Yasdanpanah, also killed himself in this case, the search for the reasons seems remarkably muted in media accounts.
Is it easier for this killing to be superficially attached to Christmas holiday stress, rather than problems in a Iranian family’s dynamics?
New Hampshire cancelled a 1.8 million dollar grant to planned parenthood, due to concerns that part of that money would be supporting the abortion portion of their business.
Obama decided to make up for this by granting a 1 million dollar replacement with your federal tax dollars. This was funded through cuts in funding to neighboring health care providers. In addition, this money was provided without the usual process of allowing other agencies to compete for the grant.
New Hampshire Right to Life has been looking into this unusual million dollar grant, and is suing the Sebelius HHS, because this very ‘opaque’ agency refused its Freedom of Information request for information.
The Obama administration has also opposed a Texas attempt to defund planned parenthood.
Indiana is fighting the HHS threat to defund its other health programs because of the state’s decision to defund the country’s largest abortion provider.
The answer is: YES your federal tax dollars are being used to fund abortion. Obama is fulfilling his promise to keep ABORTION at the center of his health care program.
Over at Jill Stanek’s Place, a smoking hot whistleblower case against Planned Parenthood is detailed.
The case, filed in the Eastern TX Lufkin Division of the United States District Court, alleges widespread fraudulent billing practices designed to maximize income drawn in from Medicaid.
Karen Reynolds, represented by the ACLJ, worked as a health care assistant for 10 years, ending in 2009, in the Lufkin, TX Branch of Planned Parenthood. She reported a practice of maximizing income from Title XX, Medicaid and Womens Health Program using fraudulent billing practices which included charging for services not rendered nor appropriate, and for abortion related services disguised as otherwise.
Memos and email provided by Reynolds indicate that employees at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast were trained to provide and bill for services based upon what the patients’ coverage would pay for. Cash payers would receive medically necessary services, and all sorts of extras were added to the bills of patients funded by other programs. Post abortion visits were billed as though they were for another purpose, so that they became government funded.
Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast has 10 clinics in eastern TX and 2 in Louisiana. These include the largest abortion clinic in the U.S. (Houston), a likely inspiration for the Onion Abortionplex parody.
PPGC entered a motion to stay the discovery process, which Judge Ron Clark denied. Documentation has begun to trickle from PPGC …… (which had not yet been eaten by the shredder, opines Pharmer).
Due to a concentration of oil refining and agricultural industries, the Texas economy would be hard hit by governmental regulation of falsely named “greenhouse gasses’.
A complete refusal by all states to comply would be appropriate here.
The EPA needs to clean itself of Global Warming fraud before expecting to regulate any other entities.
