Newnan, Georgia is a Great Place to Call Home

Even with the recent shootings in Newnan, this takes nothing away from it being one of the safest communities south of Atlanta. I have absolutely no second thoughts on our decision in moving to Coweta County.

The law enforcement community here does a fantastic job of taking care of business. I’ve Tweeted many times about how this is one county drug dealers and criminals should drive right passed. We have no tolerance for stupid individuals that decide to exit off of I-85 and make a drug deal in our county. It’s going to be a bad decision with a really bad ending.

The Newnan City Police, Fire and the Coweta County Sheriffs Depts are very efficient when it comes to response time. Coweta County is ranked among one the fastest responders in the metro area.

Would I recommend that you move to Newnan? Definitely yes. Can I feel safe allowing my two little girls playing outside? Yes! One of the questions my wife and I asked each other when choosing a location to live was, would we feel safe taking a walk in our neighborhood after dark? Yes we do.

Let there be no mistake about it, the culture of predatory violence is here in Newnan. Just do your research and find the right neighborhood to call home.  Local black leaders are beginning to recognize that the recent acts of violence are indeed a cultural issue, although some are falling for the easy, politically correct excuse that guns are the cause.

Guns are just a tool used by these thugs. The same result would happen if it were a knife or baseball bat being used. You can thank the gangsta thug rap mentality for the preference of weapon and the desire to be a neighborhood tough guy.

What would make a young black punk, pants down past his ass, tats on his neck, throwing gang signs while rappin about bitches, hoes and killing think for a second that its a cool thing to do? What makes it ok for this type of activity to be allowed by responsible parents? My guess would be that the parents were raised the same way. It’s a generation thing.

When I worked in the projects of downtown Atlanta it became clear to me how normal this activity is. You become your environment.

Groups of people living in the same poor neighborhoods growing up, generation after generation with absolutely no parenting skills or solid responsible role models to look up to. The only thing these people looked up to was the politician that would promise them a bigger check each month. A check in exchange for a vote. An insurance policy that guaranteed they would never have to hold a responsible job or ever learn the meaning of work ethic. A politician that would pass the blame of every failure in their lives off on the guy who works and struggles for a living.

Reporter, Clay Neely, of the Newnan Times Herald reported today about community leaders who are speaking out about the recent shootings here.

In his article two things came out about how these leaders think.

Former Coweta County Commissioner Robert Wood thinks that taking away our right to bear arms is the answer.

Wood: “If you want to stop people from killing folks with guns, you’ve got to control the flow of weapons. You can’t sit up and allow people to have any kind of gun they want based on the second amendment. You just can’t do it.”

Then a positive thought came from Clarence “C-Bo” Bohannon, one of the founders of United We Stand For Positive Results.

Bohannon: “As tragic as it is, what we really have to do is examine the culture that is surrounding these incidents…”

Bohannon nailed it with those words. This guy has a clue. It’s the culture these young folks are growing up in.

There’s a lot more to be said about recent events here in Newnan and you can bet I’m not going to stop talking about it here on the Newnan Bull. The only difference now and when it was called The Roycroft Report is primarily the name change and that I lean more on local topics now.

I’ll close with this thought … Even with good law enforcement, you need to protect your family. You are the first responder to crimes against you and your loved ones. You have the right to protect yourself, family, friends and loved ones against the culture of predatory violence. Obtain your concealed carry permit and get plenty of firearms training. Get involved with your community and speak out. Do not let politicians take any of that away from you! Guns don’t kill people. People kill people with guns, knives, bats, fists and whatever the hell else they can grab.

The City of Newnan and Coweta County Georgia is a wonderful place to raise your family, get a job or start a new business. We welcome you here! -JRoycroft

Did Malaysia Airlines Pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah Hijack Flight MH370 as a Bargaining Tool For The Release of Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim, Jailed For Homosexuality?

The plot thickens and new disturbing facts are coming out about what may have really happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 vanishing with 239 passengers aboard.

We know know that pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah was a supporter of his country’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim, who was put in jail for charges of homosexuality just a few hours prior to the Boeing 777 vanishing.
It’s also been discovered that Shah had built his own flight simulator in his home. I’m not a pilot, so this may not be all that strange to those who fly for a living. What does come as a strange coincidence is the fact that Shahs family moved out of their home  the day before the plane disappeared.

I’m thinking there is a plane with precious cargo on board, safe on the ground, that may very well be used as a bargaining tool for the release of a jailed government opposition leader in Malaysia. Where is it, and what group is helping to hide it? -JRoycroft

Malaysia Flight 370 HIJACKED

It’s now being reported that Malaysia flight 370 was either sabotaged or hijacked. Wow! Imagine that ever happening.  I suggested this in my March 11th post.

In an exclusive from Reuters: Military radar data suggests a Malaysia Airlines jetliner missing for nearly a week was deliberately flown hundreds of miles off course, heightening suspicions of foul play among investigators, sources told Reuters on Friday.”

If in fact the plane was deliberately flown towards India, the possibility of it landing on an island is not out of the question. The possibility of the plane flying to the middle east is also possible.

Now I’m wondering how many people does it take to hide a Boeing 777, and exactly what countries are involved in this historical aviation mystery? -JRoycroft

Where Is Malaysia Flight MH370?

So where do you hide a Boeing 777 loaded with 239 passengers and crew members?

Flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing departed at 12:41am on Saturday March 8.  Beyond that is a baffling mystery. The last known location was 40 minutes into its journey over the Gulf of Thailand.

Rumors of passenger cell phones still ring and appear to be active.

Was this a tragic crash yet to be found or worse?

It is entirely plausible that this could be another terrorist hijacking where the plane has been flown to the middle east, refueled, and used as a weapon of mass destruction elsewhere.

Until wreckage has been located and verified the possibility of another 9/11 scenario is completely real.  If not in the United States, somewhere else. -JRoycroft

RUSSIA EXPANDS MILITARY INTO CUBA AT A TIME WHEN BARACK OBAMA WEAKENS U.S. MILITARY

with one comment

March 1, 2014

Should America be concerned?

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Wednesday that his military was in talks with Cuba and seven other governments, in an effort to extend it’s long range strategic naval and bomber capabilities.

“Russia has started reviving its navy and strategic aviation since mid-2000s, seeing them as a tool to project the Russian image abroad and to protect its national interests around the globe,” the RIA Novosti state news agency commented.

“Now, Moscow needs to place such military assets in strategically important regions of the world to make them work effectively toward the goal of expanding Russia’s global influence.”

In 2014, Russia was reported to have overtaken Britain to become the world’s third biggest military spender, behind the U.S. and China. Doubling it’s defense spending since 2007, and will have tripled by 2016.

Mean while, Barack Obama plans a major decrease in the United States military defense.

I wonder what John Kennedy’s reaction to hearing of the news that Vladimir Putin was in talks with Cuba and other communist countries surrounding the idea of a new stronger Russian military? A military that may soon be strategically capable of striking the United States in the blink of an eye.

Unlike Kennedy vs Khrushchev, Vladimir Putin is a strong military leader. Barack Obama is nothing more than a weak political hack. -JRoycroft

“Russia has started reviving its navy and strategic aviation since mid-2000s, seeing them as a tool to project the Russian image abroad and to protect its national interests around the globe,” the RIA Novosti state news agency commented.

At a time of escalated tensions with the West over Ukraine, Russia says it is negotiating with eight governments around the world for access to military facilities, to enable it to extend its long-range naval and strategic bomber capabilities.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Wednesday the military was engaged in talks with Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Algeria, Cyprus, the Seychelles, Vietnam and Singapore.

“We need bases for refueling near the equator, and in other places,” ITAR-Tass quoted him as saying.

Gay Activist Homo-Facist Thugs

leave a comment »

February 25, 2014

th

It’s Arizona Senate Bill 1062, which basically would allow business owners to refuse service to anyone, including gays and lesbians on the grounds of their religious conviction. This bill protects people of faith against the intolerant forces of politically correct tolerance. The legislation has already passed Arizona’s legislature and now it is up to Arizona’s Governor to sign it into law.

Governor Brewer has until Friday to make a decision.  Some people are saying that she will veto the bill.

I must agree with what Eric Erickson, Editor of Red State Blog said today, “Despite the left’s obfuscations, no one is claiming that Christians should be allowed to simply not serve gays. No one is claiming that or even arguing that. What we do claim is that a Christian butcher, baker, candle stick maker, florist, photographer, or priest should not be forced to provide goods or services to a gay wedding or risk losing their business on orders of the state.”

I have no issues with gay marriage and quite honestly could not care less what goes on behind closed doors in anyone’s voluntary relationships. It’s none of mine or your business. As for private business owners, it should be their right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.

What if you’re the owner of a Catholic bookstore and the government decides you must, by law, allow condom machines be installed in your store? Where does it end?

The rights of private citizens are being controlled by a handful of political activists, in this case gay rights activists. They tried to take down S. Truett Cathy and his Chick-fil-A empire but failed.

Enough of this politically correct bull and let Americans make their own choices on who they serve in their private businesses.

Gov Jan Brewer should sign the religious liberty legislation into law and say to hell with these activists groups dictating everyone elses morals.

I think it was Bryan Fischer that referred to the gay activists as a bunch of Jack-Booted Homo-Facist Thugs. I would tend to agree. -JRoycroft

Obama Continues to Weaken Our Military

with one comment

February 24, 2014

During Obama’s five years in office, post 9/11 Veterans not in the labor force has more than doubled.

In January 2009, there were 277,000 post 9/11 not in the labor force. January 2014 that number had risen to 594,000. These are statistics that were published by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics.

According to the BLS, there are 21,323,000 veterans age 18 and over. Among this group the unemployment rate in January was 5.6 percent. That’s a full percentage point below the national rate of 6.6.

Among Gulf War Vets the unemployment rate was at 7.9 percent.

veteransToday it was announced that our military would be downsized to levels

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced his Pentagon budget priorities Monday afternoon. The Army had already been preparing to shrink to 490,000 active-duty members from a wartime peak of 570,000. Hagel is proposing to cut it further to between 440,000 and 450,000 making it the the smallest U.S. military since before the U.S. entered World War II.

How safe are you feeling with this hater of our Republic at the helm? -JRoycroft

Trafficking Illegal Drugs? Better Stay Out of Coweta County

with 2 comments

February 22, 2014

Coweta County has one of the finest law enforcement agencies around which might explain why Newnan was recently ranked as one of the top 50 safest cities in Georgia. It’s also a reason why drug traffickers should probably pick another town to pass through.ShowImage.aspx

Just ask Larry Donnell Dorsey Jr. how good they are, or rather how stupid he is for driving through Newnan with an improper license plate displayed while  smoking pot and smelling like Cheech and Chong when he was pulled over.

Seems that Mr Dorsey, who gave consent to a search, apparently felt safe knowing his stash was hidden under his spare tire. Or maybe he just forgot. Doesn’t pot cause short term memory? I’m guessing that Mr Dorsey wasn’t expecting a full blown drug search which included looking under his spare where officers found a loaded .357 caliber revolver, five plastic bags of marijuana weighing more than five ounces, 11 plastic bags of powdered cocaine, 11 plastic bags of an unidentified substance, and digital scales.

I’d be willing to bet those digital scales will pretty much seal the deal on trafficking charges. Newnan Times Herald

And then there was this little gem of a drug bust just minutes away from my home near the Newnan Country Club after a tip led agents to stop a vehicle occupied by Jim Edward Torres, Adriana Villanueva, and Villanueva Castula,

Mr Torres gave agents a consent to search and guess what they found? A plastic bag containing drugs.

In other words, agents found enough meth to send Torres away for a mandatory 25 years, unless of course he has a really good explanation on how 2.2 pounds of suspected methamphetamine, worth approximately $35,000 found it’s way into his vehicle. Newnan Times Herald

Great job Sheriff! -JRoycroft
