I normally refuse to discuss religion or politics...

but......Paul Joseph Watson

The blueprint for how Americans would be disarmed during a declared civil emergency is contained in an Army manual that outlines a plan to confiscate firearms to prevent them falling into the hands of rioters or dissidents.

Given the imminent introduction of Senator Dianne Feinstein’s draconian gun control legislation, which would instantly criminalize millions of gun owners in the United States if passed, concerns that the Obama administration could launch a massive gun confiscation effort have never been greater.
In July 2012, the process by which this could take place was made clear in a leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” (PDF) dating from 2006. Similar plans were also outlined in an updated manual released in 2010 entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations.
The document outlines how military assets will be used to “help local and state authorities to restore and maintain law and order” in the event of mass riots, civil unrest or a declaration of martial law.
On page 20 of the manual, rules regarding the use of “deadly force” in confronting “dissidents” are made disturbingly clear with the directive that a, “Warning shot will not be fired.”
“Restrictions on the sale, transfer, and possession of sensitive material such as gasoline, firearms, ammunition, and explosives will help control forces in minimizing certain forms of violence,” states the document on page 40.
The issue of gun confiscation is also covered in the manual, which makes clear that every effort will be made to prevent “rioters” and “dissidents” from having access to weapons.
“A main consideration in the conduct of civil disturbance operations is to prevent liquor, drugs, weapons, and ammunition from falling into the hands of rioters. Therefore, liquor stores, drug stores, sporting good shops, pawn shops, and hardware stores are main targets for looters and must be kept under close observation by means of foot and motorized patrols. Normally, businesses of this type must be identified in advance and included in emergency plans,” states the manual. (Emphasis added.)
The document also instructs soldiers to protect “control force personnel and civilian dignitaries in the disturbed area” from the violent behavior of “radical or extremist elements” by denying access to “armories, arsenals, hardware, and sporting good stores, pawnshops, and gunsmith establishments, or other places where weapons or ammunition are stored. To conserve manpower, consideration may be given to evacuating sensitive items, such as weapons from stores and storing them in a central facility.”
Urban warfare training drills focused on invading American towns and going door to door in gun confiscation exercises have been taking place for years. In 2009, a planned mock invasion of Arcadia, Iowa was scaled back by the Iowa National Guard after listeners to the Alex Jones Show threatened to protest the event.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the New Orleans Police, National Guard troops, and U.S. Marshals confiscated firearms. “Guns will be taken. Only law enforcement will be allowed to have guns,” New Orleans PoliceSuperintendent Eddie Compass declared as he prepared to violate the Second Amendment. The National Guard conducted warrantless house-to-house searches, targeting not just Hurricane-hit areas under the pretext of stopping violent looters, but also high and dry homes that were not even affected by the storm.

I have burgers and mini sliders. They won't cure your urge for meat but they will cure your sweet tooth. Yes burgers and mini slider cupcakes. Not an original idea I must admit but I had to try them. I'm using them for my friends birthday, he wanted a cake but I think it will fit his "man" image. Besides they are different and something cool for a birthday surprise.

Thinking about..........

Spring. It's been a balmy eleven degrees out and in the negative digits at night. I seriously hate the cold and the snow but have committed myself to dealing with it for the next eighteen months. To break up the monotony of being indoors I decided to bake some cookies. Cookies, Spring, Spring, Cookies. I just figured together it might just brighten up the day. At least it kept me busy for awhile and in the end I was able to eat a few cookies, before we distribute them to the neighbors.

Baby Shower Items Delivered.....

A nice order with a few challenges, the biggest challenge being finding the products needed for Vegan Cupcakes. I did my research, so I could be sure that I was in line with the Vegan standards and then finding where I could purchase those items. Secondly using items I rarely use in baking, Organic unrefined sugar which I come to find is brownish in color. There is white granulated sugar you can get that is Vegan but they didn't have any available in this area and I didn't have time to order any so I made due. The other items like Vegan butter and shortening wasn't a problem. I did not use baking powder or baking soda I had to use vinegar as a raising agent, After a couple try's at Candied Lemon peel I was successful and I made a few batches of cupcakes before I got them to be acceptable for me. I'm my own worse critic! I also succeeded at lemon Vegan curd, after three attempts.
I also made Black Forest Espresso cupcakes and triple vanilla truffle cupcakes. I had to make a few vanilla cupcakes without chocolate so I used vanilla mousse for the center instead. The triple vanilla cupcakes were vanilla cake, a vanilla truffle in the center, cream cheese white chocolate frosting and white chocolate curls. The no chocolate vanilla had cream cheese frosting , white cake and vanilla mousse.

The Black Forest espresso cupcakes were black forest cake and lots of espresso.

Making Babies Today,with pictures!

Wow, you people think dirty. I did spend part of the day making babies, four to be exact. It was seriously easier than I thought it would be just a bit time consuming.
I'm making items for a baby shower this weekend so I thought I'd make a few babies just for an extra. The baking comes this Saturday and on the agenda is Triple Vanilla Truffle Cupcakes, Vegan Lemon Explosion Cupcakes and Black Forest Mocha Espresso Cupcakes. I'll post those pictures this weekend. Sorry to get everybody all exited.

The babies were done with a mold and I made the diapers and hats with fondant.

Raspberry Tiramisu Cupcakes........

These cupcakes are new to my list of cupcakes that are going to be available to my customers. They can easily be made to be Vegan and have a unique flavor. If you like Tiramisu you'll love these. The chocolate, raspberry, espresso and Disaronno blend nicely. I got the thumbs up from my flavor testers.
