Journal News discovers the value of weapons of self defense

Warning: crazed maniac gun owner guards this house!

Warning: crazed maniac gun owner guards this house!

The paper hires armed security guards for its offices. I’ve retired from this story but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the irony. Someone should ask the paper whether it is also providing armed guards for the abused women who were hidden from their tormentors until the Journal disclosed their addresses.

I’m guessing not.

UPDATE: It occurs to me that those private security guards must by law all have pistol permits. Those of them who reside in Westchester, Dutchess and Putnam counties are the very people Journal News publisher Janet Hasson “outed” as social misfits and dangerous people, too dangerous (or perhaps unworthy?)  to be trusted to defend their own lives or those of their neighbors. But they’re entirely suitable to protect Janet and her staff – how is that? She’d better hope that her evaluation of them was wrong because if they’re really as crazy as she claims they are, she’s probably in trouble, right now.

    I know it’s about a week old post I am referring to but,:
    51 old stone bridge was a short sale
    Originally purchased in 2007 for 2,262,500
    Closed last week 1,325,000

    Yes, ouch.

    Previous owner has 3 kids in private schools and is now renting.
    Gut check.

    I’m sure nobody at the Journal News finds this the least bit controversial.
    After all, the rules are only intended for the little people.

    That is outrageous.

    Here’s an idea…….

    Give Victoria D. Harker of the Gannet Corp a call…..ask her if she has retained the services of an armed security company……

    You can call anytime….day or night……seriously…….

    Victoria D. Harker
    CFO, Gannet Inc (owner of The Journal News)
    Board Member, Darden (Red Lobster, Olive Garden)
    Alumni Association Board of Managers, University of Virginia “86
    Husband: Drew A. Harker (Washington lawyer)
    Mother of 3 sons, former triathlete
    Home (434) 325-2374
    134 Warrior Run
    Roseland, VA 22967

    Or call Caryn McBride of the Journal-News…….apparently Caryn, who finds offense, threats and some sort of “ism” in everything from breakfast cereal to long-distance calling plans, went absolutely batshit, collapsed in a quivering heap, recovered slightly and then ran screaming off to the local law enforcement agency, the Clarkstown Police Dept…….the cause?……..a threatening email!!!!

    The text of the felonious email you ask?……..


    I know, I know….try and wrap your heads around that viscous email……it drips poison……the dire threat that drips blood and liquifies one’s bowels (can you smell it?)…..oooooohhhhhhhh

    Don’t you just love the sweet sweet irony of this one……

    Here’s a clip of Caryn McBride facing an accuser who has found out that Caryn recently purchased non-recycled content toilet paper and , further, was seen in close proximity to a well thumbed issue of “Guns and Ammo”………..OH THE HORROR!!!

    Dude –
    These people are scum. The main stream media, the vaunted fourth estate, has lost all credibility. They have lost the sense of objective reporting, and embrace their own agenda. And distort the news to advance their Commie cause.

    Which is why you can’t get off this story. The new media – which would be you, will continue to bring us the real story. Until Barry shuts you down, which could happen any day.

    And I will run off with Louis Lane, she of the cheap panty hose and nubile ruby red lips.

    Until then, keep up the good work.

    You loser.
    Your Pal,

  7. Is that Caryn McBride of 17 McBride Ave., White Plains, NY 10603 Phone: 914-948-9388?

    Just wonderin’

    Let me see if I get this straight.

    20 dead children = no need for any armed personnel at school.

    A couple of ambiguous emails = emergency requiring multiple armed guards.

    Takeaway = journalists obviously more important than kindergartners.

    Sounds good.

    I like to entertain the notion that part of their fear comes from the after-the-fact realization that what they did was entirely reckless. I want to believe at least ONE of these typical holier-than-thou brainiacs senses that they deserve to be led away in handcuffs, sentenced to ten years, and then deported with Piers Morgan upon their release.
    I would kiss Dianne Feinstein full on the lips before I would occupy the same room as one of these scum. Dianne’s just a dope; we can straighten her out. But these reckless scum? There’s no hope, they are what they are.

    ‘Group claims hacked subscriber database of NY newspaper which published gun permit map’

    “…The plan for further publication [of gun permit holders] may be in doubt as a neighboring county just announced it was denying the Journal News access to its gun permit database….”

    “…This privacy war has just escalated dramatically, as a group of self-described ”2nd Amendment supporters” claims it has downloaded and posted on the web what it describes as the “user” database of the Journal News.

    Twitter users claim the list is being widely circulated…”

    • Mark B.

      Here in the midst of all this, uh, gaiety – here’s a link to see a photo of THE MAN, Putnam County Clerk Dennis Sant, who was privileged enough to get the chance to tell the Journal-News, di-RECTLY, “Kiss my balls”. 

      How I respect and envy this man.

    • Yeah. Does that actually make any sense? I mean, posting public information is one thing (turnabout is fair play), but hacking? Does that sound like something 2nd Amendment advocates do? Or does that sound like something Anonymous does?

      Think about it. They could have hacked the staff’s emails. That would have screwed the paper. But they hacked and published the online users database. And the online users were almost universally supportive of the 2nd Amendment (or atleast repulsed by what Lohud did). So who did they really hurt? Not Lohud. Essentially, they just published another list of more gun owners and gun advocates.

      So again, does that sound like 2nd Amendment supporters or Anonymous?

    Mr. Fountain, I realize you are ready to get back to ‘real life’, but just wanted to say thank you for your postings. Will drop back in to get your musings on other subjects. And see the RE prices, being thankful I live in Texas. 😀

  11. They are called Threat Assessment Teams. Yep! TAT…
    They have them in my state, too. They monitor to whom you talk to, stick close by on the Interstate, and even go so far as entering other people’s homes at their whim in order to investigate them, too. Just making sure everyone is as stable as they are.

    Just yesterday my computer security found one of their devices that had been on an old disk for years. $Chicago$ was the name of a remote control device that had been there since at least ’04. Surely a new one is in place now if it took that long to produce a security sweep that could find it. One nearly decapitate woman in my area had her family asked about a man in Chicago. Guess that is a clue to what I’m supposed to be doing-looking for the killer for them, or at least looking for organized crime figures so they can write a book.

    I even loaded up an left the state last year, thinking I could escape them. No way! Someone flung themself over a 6′ fence and removed an expired vaccination tag off my dog’s collar. After returning home again, and the other tag expiring, they did the same. I’m hoping my dog gets rabies and bites them when they attempt the same type monitoring.

    They pull your mail out of the mailbox hoping to catch a mafia figure working in the area. They tailed a guy working on my neighbors house around the same time and he, being an ex-con, got scared and got a gun. Don’t blame him!

    They will even go so far as to drive to another state to get old education records to determine your IQ and stability. Just to see if you’re suitable to work for their go-nowhere causes and useless charities they operate that are intended to make the world a better place.

    The gun owners thought they were being good citizens when they complied with the law. That isn’t good enough it seems.
