From Nurse to Bank Robber

The Bombshell Bandit

“Tick tock. I have a bomb.”

This was a note given by a bank robber to a the cashier at Bank of the West on 6 July 2014.

But this bank robber wasn’t a sturdy man wearing a ski mask or wielding a machine gun, she was a 25-year old Sikh nurse. Called the Bombshell Bandit, due to her glamorous disguises and bomb threats, she captured the attention of many who wondered what could be the reason behind a nurse becoming a bank robber.

Sandeep Kaur  moved to California from Punjab at the age of seven and by 19 was a licensed nurse, earning up to $6,000 a month. But things turned awry when Kaur discovered Las Vegas at 21 and became a gambling addict.

Soon she quit nursing to concentrate on gambling fulltime. “I stopped working. I could not focus and going to work for this little amount of money” Kaur said.

But by March 2012 she had lost her life savings and was in debt. She then borrowed money at a steep interest, attempting to recover what she had lost.

What happened next is best summed by Kaur’s statement:

“I ate at that table. I only took bathroom breaks… I was sitting at the table for 16 hours… hoping it’ll all change. Then it all just went down the drain.”

She had to flee Las Vegas and managed to evade the loan sharks until they caught up with her in May 2014.

Desperate, she resorted to their suggestion of a bank robbery and without a weapon or back-up plan, she managed to escape with $21,200 on her first attempt. But since that wasn’t enough, she had little choice but to rob more banks.

However, her run ended on 31 July 2014 when the manager of US Bank alerted the authorities and thus began the police pursuit that lasted 65 miles, crossed three states, two time zones, and reached speeds of 130mph resulting in her capture.

Kaur may be in prison now, but her exploits have cemented her name on the list of unusual bank robbers.

Bloody Political underwear makes more than one point

Ted-Cruz-panties

Ted-Cruz-panties

In an attempt to shame politicians who are pro-life, a range of period underwear has been launched in America. Unintentionally, one of the points they have made is not one that they intended. Periods are about blood and abortionists have blood on their hands. Every single abortion results in bleeding and stops a beating heart. The period underwear makers donate $3 from every sale to an organisation that performs abortions, which links them forever in my mind to bloody death.

As my children would say, it is an epic fail and one ripe for brutal satire that is meant to offend. (If you are pro-abortion or find dead babies offensive or upsetting, stop reading now.)

For one US company, that means period underwear that makes a political statement. Cute Fruit Undies, an Etsy shop based in Washington state, is selling underwear with the faces of anti-abortion rights politicians printed right on the lining. Read more »

If you vote for Bernie Sanders you are not a real man

d473f276a093abe452188fb9b68249c2

Are you a real man? Courtney Kirchoff has a hilarious view of masculinity to share with us all. As an old-fashioned feminist I have to say that I agree with her. Socialist men who are politically correct are simply not attractive. I don’t know how socialist women can bring themselves to shag them. I really can’t. When you need protection, these guys are as useful as tits on a bull.

…0n the flip side of these strapping, rugged men there’s you. A Bernie Sanders sycophant with not quite enough self-worth to fill an egg cup. Or a teaspoon. Certainly not enough to fill your bong. Take a good long puff before you read the rest of this, it’s not going to get any better. I’m not going to make you a sandwich either. May I recommend a Hot Pocket?

What is a man?…

America’s Forgotten German POW Camps

By May of 1943, the British government had asked the United States to help with over 300,000 German POWs taken from the North African campaign There was simply no more room to house all of the prisoners within their country. The U.S. agreed, and throughout 1943, POWs were arriving at the rate of 10,000 a week until around 450,000 were housed in over 500 POWs camps across 45 states.

They arrived on crowded troop carriers, converted freighters not meant for passengers, and even cruise ships used for troop transport. The first arrivals were the elite Afrika Corps who had surrendered after they had run out of ammunition and supplies. The POWs were sent to processing centres where the S.S. and hard-core Nazi’s were to have been weeded out of the POWS being sent to the U.S., but many eluded detection and were sent to the U.S. in the numerous shipments of soldiers.

S.S. soldiers were easily identifiable as they had a tattoo under their arm that designated that they would be the first to receive blood, medicine, and rations in the case of injury in battle. However, many Nazi soldiers passed through undetected as the U.S. simply asked each solider if they were a Nazi, and a good number of the Nazi soldiers simply said “no” when they answered. This was unlike the British screening process which had a more thorough approach in determining party affiliation.

Meet the Man Who Got Congress Its Booze During Prohibition

One day in March 1925—five years into the absurd experiment called Prohibition—a dapper man named George Cassiday strolled into the office building of the U.S. House of Representatives, carrying a briefcase and wearing a spiffy light green hat. The cop at the door recognized Cassiday, which wasn’t surprising. Nearly everybody on Capitol Hill knew Cassiday. He was Congress’ favourite bootlegger, working out of the House Office Building, delivering booze to dozens of congressmen, who found a strong drink soothing after long days spent listening to tedious political blather.

On this day, however, the cop stopped Cassiday, inspected his briefcase, found liquor, and arrested him.

When reporters heard that a bootlegger was busted in Congress, they called the House sergeant-at-arms, who described the miscreant as “a man in a green hat.” The next morning, Cassiday became famous across America as “The Man in the Green Hat,” a living symbol of congressional hypocrisy and the follies of Prohibition.

Cassiday pleaded guilty and served 60 days in jail. When he got out, he learned that he’d been barred from the House Office Building. Obviously, he needed another place to work. So he moved to the Senate Office Building. He sold booze there for five years, until 1930, when he was arrested delivering gin to the Senate. This time Prohibition agents confiscated Cassiday’s “little black book,” containing the names of his illustrious customers.

In October 1930—two weeks before the congressional election—the Washington Post announced that it would publish a six-part series written by Cassiday, revealing the juicy details of his adventures as Congress’ “official bootlegger.”

“It will be,” the Post promised, “an astonishing story.”

And it was.

Face of the day

 

Today’s face of the day wants the liberal vote but is refusing to play the same card played by Obama and Clinton. The liberals loved Obama because he played the colour-of-his-skin card. A vote for Obama was a vote to elect the first-ever Black president. It made liberal voters’ knickers sticky. It made white women feel good about how non-racist they were. Hillary Clinton knows how the game is played. A vote for her is a vote for the first-ever female president. She plays the sex card because, again, liberals get sticky knickers at the thought of being non-sexist enough to make a woman president. Bernie Sanders has a card that will make him a first too but he refuses to play it. Why do you think that is?

I wonder duh, if this is connected to Islamic terrorism

There are terrorist attacks in Israel almost every day now in my Facebook feed. Terrorism attacks in the West are also becoming frighteningly common. The way they are reported though, is maddeningly similar. The initial reports always comment that the reason for the attack is unknown. The latest attack in America, with barely the basic facts known, clearly points to an Islamic terrorist attack yet the press and the police persist with the pretense that they really have no idea why it happened, as they always do every time this kind of attack happens.

Packaging is one of the problems with legal marijuana edibles

America has legalised marijuana for recreational use in some states and has had two key problems.

The first problem is with the serious hallucinogenic side effects of edibles when the customer accidentally eats too big a dose. The second problem is the unregulated packaging. Have a look at these and tell me whether or not children and adults would be confused by them.

American Islamic couple cry Islamophobia, when caught with two female slaves

The Arab slave trade was happening long before the Americans started enslaving and trading in African slaves. Islam has a long history of slavery as Muhammad approved of slavery and had many slaves, including sex slaves. Europeans in the past had slaves but, in modern times, the practice has been abolished. Islam, in contrast, has not changed with the times and slavery, as well as other vile things such as child brides and paedophilia, are still considered acceptable to a ‘devout’ Muslim who takes the Koran literally.

Hassan al-Homoud and Zainab al-Hosani thought they could intimidate a Texas judge into submitting to Sharia law — they couldn’t have been more wrong.

Hassan al-Homoud and Zainab al-Hosani thought they could intimidate a Texas judge into submitting to Sharia law — they couldn’t have been more wrong.
A racist Muslim couple living in their luxurious San Antonio home brought over two Third World women to keep as slaves. They thought they could convince the judge that since their Islamic prophet kept slaves, it would be “Islamophobic” to deny them. However, instead of submitting to Sharia law, the Texas judge gave them a taste of their own medicine.

America fails to learn from Europe and imports rampant rape and crime to Texas

They say history always repeats itself and unfortunately it does. Despite there being clear and violent evidence of the problems associated with Muslim refugees, America has ignored what is happening in Europe and has imported rampant crime and rape to its own shores. Australia is not far behind and New Zealand has already cracked open the door.

It is not as though they can claim ignorance. They can’t say, “We had no idea this would happen.” The evidence is there, the statistics are there, and the violence the crime and the rape is clearly evident. Yet America, Australia and New Zealand seem determined to head down the same suicidal path as Europe.

The rape and violence crisis attributed to the influx of “refugees” may not be a problem exclusive to European countries. According to at least one woman, it’s already started in the U.S.

Karen Sherman recently moved to Missoula, Montana, and stood in front of the local courthouse Monday to warn residents about the “civil unrest” they might be facing should the Obama administration’s plans to plant foreign migrants in the town go through, WND reported.

More than 120 protesters gathered to hear Sherman’s account of what happened in her former hometown of Amarillo, Texas.

“Amarillo is overrun with refugees,” Sherman said. She claimed the refugees have been given preferential treatment ahead of Americans to get benefits. “Now they’re expecting us to give them cars,” she said.    Read more »
