And so it begins...Glenn Beck Fan, Highly Armed, Busted in New York, XM-15 assault rifle, a shotgun and 500 rounds of ammunition
Fooldom knew this was coming....
As reported by Saturday's NY Post, "a Long Island mother of three -- armed to the teeth with an assault rifle and shotgun -- was arrested for scouting out and taking pictures of an Air National Guard base."
Her arsenal included an XM-15 assault rifle, a shotgun and 500 rounds of ammunition.
The woman, Nancy Genovese, had been seen at the base a few weeks earlier, taking photos and questioning the guards. This time she had returned to take photos of the perimeter of the base. It's not difficult to make the connection that she was paranoid about "FEMA Camps".
Genovese is a Glenn Beck fan, according to her MySpace page (archived here). "He is mad as hell and so are we. He is right and so are we", writes Genovese, who also posted a video of a Glenn Beck rant.
Genovese additionally posted an amateur video indicating her apparent affinity for right-wing militia movements.
Update #1: As posted below by davidkc, a nugget in the NY Post article is that "Genovese [was] held for a psychiatric examination after she went berserk in the courtroom."
Update #2: Genovese's Twitter page makes it clear she's a Tea Bagger.
Update #3: For those questioning the "FEMA Camp" connection, use your browser's search function to search Genovese's MySpace page. You'll find multiple references where she acts out her paranoia.
Update #4: The Westhampton News adds a few details. Photo below is of Genovese and the weapons and ammo police say they found in her possession.
MY COMMENT: I do not want or support the violence that might be building. I want the rule of law to reinstate itself and confidence in the system to be restored. It is the right answer and the easy answer.
I told Fooldom to buy the gun and ammo makers (SWHC, RGR and OLN) , they are all up near 100% since my call. The "unwashed masses" in the "fly over states" might not appreciate the activities of DC/Government Sach/FED/banksters. If I was a Government Sachs employee, I would begin to think about a Plan B.

The cat coming out of the bag this week -- a frazzled, flaming, rabid, death-dealing cat -- is the news that Goldman Sachs will announce impressive second-quarter profits, and set aside $18 billion or so for employee bonuses averaging $600,000 per head (though, of course, not evenly distributed among them). There probably are not fifty-three people in the USA who can explain how this development figures in with last fall's bailout gift from the US treasury, or the $13 billion GS received on the backside of US gift payments to the failed AIG insurance company, plus the reams of necrotic securitized debt paper rotting in the back of the GS vaults. This is a company playing with the fire of world history.
It brings back the question, which has loomed dimly at the margins of America's collective consciousness, as to whether we can get through the long emergency ahead without going through a wringer of domestic political convulsion. At this rate, sooner or later, anything identified with wealth could become a target for the wrath of the unemployed and foreclosed. The first rock that flies through an East Hampton window, or the first firebomb tossed into the lobby of Goldman Sachs Manhattan headquarters could ignite a chain of events that shoves all economic policy out of the political arena and quickly divides everyone at the center of power into armies out for blood.
By now, everyone in that fraction of the world that pays attention to something other than American Idol and their platter of TGI Friday's loaded potato skins knows that Goldman Sachs has been caught at another racket in the stock market: front-running trades. What a clever gambit, done with the help of the markets themselves - the Nasdaq in particular - in which information on trades is held back a fraction of a second from public view, while the data is shoveled to the computers of privileged subscribers who can execute zillions of programmed micro-trades before the rest of the herd makes a move. This allows them to vacuum up hundreds of millions of dollars by doing absolutely nothing of value. The old-fashioned method used by brokers was called "churning," in which stocks were bought and sold incessantly (by phone) from the portfolios of inattentive clients merely to generate commissions. In any sensible society - i.e. a society with an instinct for self-preservation - it would be against the law and the people doing it would be sent to prison.
MY COMMENT: Goldman Sachs appears to have robbed just about everyone, including Police, Fire Department, State employees and bankrupt airlines/industry with the Commodity Bubble. FYI - Most airline employees are former or current Reservists in the Military. I hope the FBI, SEC, Homeland Security, the Hague, UN, etc... bring Goldman to justice before there are more "Long Island mother of three" going "Rambo" in New York etc....
