Pastor Carol Daniels, a Grand Jury and Someone Watching the Case

A few months ago a grand jury was asked to look into the Pastor Carol Daniels case. Previously they had put a retired detective on the case as basically a help you out type of consulting job. Putting a retired guy on the case is what you do when you have a retired friend that needs a couple of bucks and need someone to babysit a cold case that you think you cannot solve. My dad was a cop before I was even born. My dad was a famous law enforcement officer my whole life and is even famous today and he taught me this garbage since I was elementary school. I know the law to, I have a doctorate in it. That grand jury was supposed to kill this case and blame it on the dead dealer; but, they didn't. They didn't because it wasn't that drug dealer, if that is in fact what she was. They wanted to blame the dead girl and I wrote that on this blog at that time.

Here is a stone cold fact, the murderer entered through the back door. The police had video of the front door. The police removed and saved to evidence the back door. That is a fact. There are other facts that I have recited over the years and things that can actually be proven. I personally have stated that I have told the OSBI who I am and unless they are the worst police unit in the United States, they have checked me out.

This is an ugly case for the OSBI and they still have missed the obvious. If they had found tire marks behind the church, they would know what the killer drove; but, the killer did not drive there, they walked there. It was dirt behind the church, they knew the killer entered and left through the back, they should have print mark casts from the back of the church and I don't think they do. I think the local cops screwed up the crime scene and that is understandable. Small town cops are not trained in complicated and rare murders. The Kansas City police royally messed up and screwed up the BTK investigation for 40 years.

The grand jury didn't end up blaming the supposed drug dealer because they knew they were going to get called out. I have told people to NOT speculate on specific people being involved in this murder to anyone other than the police. Online speculation is horrifically stupid. You don't ever publicly announce who you suspect until they arrest them or you are warning them.

I recently came across a blog that is really interested in crime.

The Works of KD Burr - UPDATE: The Pastor Carol Daniels Case

There is a line in the post that I believe is referencing me, it says, "One online crime enthusiast, who has religiously followed the case, quipped: "blaming the murder on a dead woman would wrap this up nicely for them [OSBI]." Just to be clear, I am not a "crime enthusiast" if you are referencing me. I detest criminal behavior. In fact, I have requested that someone much more viewed than my pitiful blog investigate and write about just so the family would know that people still cared. I have told the family that I am not a wonderful person and deserve no credit for anything other than my selfish interest in talking about the world I witness. It was nothing personal from me.

The person attached to the linked blog claims to be a writer of crime stories based on true events. If they can show me that they care about the family and if the family approves, I would talk to this person just to get the story heard by more and push the OSBI to take a more serious look even after all of these years.

This case was not closed by the grand jury. If I have done anything that played a role in that then I am glad and my writing was not in vain. I have said this before and I will say it again. I have done nothing other than talk about things I see. That is the only point of my blog at this time. My prayers and thoughts always go out to the family and this case has effected me though I never intended it to. I feel a connection to the family and if and when the murderer is ever caught, I will drive to Oklahoma to meet the family and tell them that she and God would expect all to forgive all sins. I believe they would and do.

K.D., hi honey. You are a pretty young woman who wants to write crime novels. Yeah, I checked you out. You tell me what you have to offer to the family and I will tell you what I have to offer to you, even things I did not publish; but, you first prove you actually care about the family and not about the crime. I have gone after Pastor Daniels church for wanting to outlaw homosexuality. I am not that nice, you better be able to prove that you are nice or you get nothing from me, ever.

Short Post, I am Heartbroken

On my first day of sixth grade, in a new school and living in a new place, one of my fellow students decided he wanted to fight the new kid, me. After school had ended we met at an adjacent vacant lot. Many of the other students followed us to watch the fight. I had no idea why this guy wanted to fight me, I didn't know him and knew nothing about him; but, he wanted to prove something to someone.

I was shocked that so many people wanted to stay after school to watch two kids fight and that none cared what the reason was. As I walked to the empty lot I told all those following that I thought they were sick for wanting to watch two children fight. I think that only solidified why the love of my life fell in love with me who I had only met that same day and in that same class. My first day in sixth grade was met with one woman who fell in love with me, the same woman who I fell in love with and one young man who wanted to beat me up just for being me.

A bunch of jerks who claim to be Nazis and Klansmen decided to piss off a bunch of people who believe they are communists and anti-fascists. The media cheers one side on, it doesn't really matter which. What does it matter which side you choose in a fight, the problem is when you seek fights. The problem is when you seek bloodshed and hate. Hate for anyone is evil.

You know what I expect from "thought leaders"? I expect them to teach tolerance and mercy and love and forgiveness, not hate and violence. Not on any side, because the sides are love and hate in the end and anyone who teaches hate creates their own hell. Hate is the world they will live in if it is the only world they create to live in. That breaks my heart.


Sorry, I left out something you are probably asking. Yes, I won the fight. I had him on the ground in a choke hold. He through a few punches that I easily blocked, I waited for him to expend that early energy and then I jumped him and put him down and in a choke hold. I put him in a choke hold and asked him to stop and if he was done. I don't think I have ever thrown the first punch in my life and if I did, I don't remember and the only person that could correct me is probably my brother. If anyone could remind me of something like that, it would be from when I was very young and it would be my brother.

Violence in response to hate is worse than hate, it is hate moved to action. It is the physical manifestation of evil in our hearts. I don't care what the reason is.

Why Doesn't the Corporate Media Denounce all Violence

I have been writing this blog for over 7 years and I dare anyone to show me where I have posted anything racist. What you will find is multiple times when I have mentioned that I am a pacifist. I also openly express my belief that Israel has a right to exist. Yet, if I say anything that defends Trump supporters there will be those who assume that I am a bad right winger which is funny seeing as how I also openly call out our corporate leaders who pay off politicians to destroy the middle and working classes.

After Charlottesville the media and many politicians claimed Trump was a racist because he called out all sides that engaged in violence. I guess this means that Jesus was a racist too. Let's be honest and admit that for about a year and a half left leaning people have been causing riots and using violence with the media not condemning them. When Milo Yiannopolus was about to give a speech in Berkley, "Antifa" and others on the left started a riot to prevent him from speaking and the media seemed to blame him rather than those who actually committed the vandalism. When these same people attacked people for attending Trump rallies, the media sought to blame Trump rather than the people who actually committed the acts of violence.

Charlottesville began when people started calling for the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee. Lee is not a simple character, in fact he opposed secession from the union. Did you know that before they brought black slaves to England they still killed the poor for fishing in the kings lakes? Before the English oligarchy took control of Ireland, they abused their own poor. Long before they abused blacks, they abused the Irish. That is a historical fact. Color does not matter, the powerful abuse the weak. Should we fight over who should be the weakest?

What if, like the corporate media, we argue over who should have the right to abuse us, the left or the right? Who should be able to control what we say and our thoughts? Nazi's or anarchists? Why are people arguing over who has the right to use violence when none do?

God is none to happy with people who say that violence is right. Thou shalt not kill is actually one of the ten commandments. Love God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself is how Jesus summarized the commandments. Why is the media arguing over who to hate and who we can abuse and restrict speech from?

Charlottesville and the Spiritual War

Fox - Maxine Waters Blames Trump for White Nationalist Riots: Your Side, Not Many Sides.

Fox- Charlottesville white nationalist rally blamed for 3 deaths, dozens of injuries.

SFGate - David Duke Blasts Trump’s Call for Unity: ‘It Was White Americans Who Put You in the Presidency

I don't care much for the corporate mainstream media. They tend to spin everything to manipulate opinion and emotions rather than present facts. Lets look at Charlottesville and what we do know. Firstly, there was a movement to remove a confederate monument. In response there was a rally to call for keeping it. The rally was called off by the city before it even started even though they had obtained a permit for the rally. After it was called off someone (we are being told it was a 20 year old man who had racist beliefs) drove his car into a crowd of people headed to protest the rally that had already been called off. Somewhere around 20 people were injured by the car and one has died. Two police officers also died when their helicopter crashed though we don't know what caused it to crash.

There are many valid issues raised by this event. Should we remove all evidence of slavery in America? Should we remove statues of Jefferson because he owned slaves? Should we remove all evidence of the civil war? Should we ignore the right of assembly and free speech?

Now there were people protesting to keep the statue who believe the south had a right to be it's own nation and leave the United States (that right however cannot be found in the Constitution except by amending it). Also included in this rally were a number of Neo-Nazis and Klansmen. While I personally find these groups disgusting, do they still have a right to express their support for keeping the statue?

When Black Lives Matter held protests where some called for killing cops, does that mean everyone who attended the rally's felt the same way? No, in fact the media was quick to point out that it was not the official position of the formal group. This is not much different.

We can look at all the separate issues; but, in the end it is an isolated situation. The media would like to tell you that racism is growing and that these groups are growing; but, the reality is that they are dying off and have been nothing but a joke for decades. During the early 1920s it was estimated that the Klan had up to 6 million members, today it is believed they have around 8,000 (though it has more sympathizers). Scientology has more members than the Klan today.

So what is the big picture? Well to begin with Neo-Nazi's and Klansmen did not send our jobs overseas or crash the economy. Neither did Muslim terrorists or gays or blacks or Jews or people who believe that abortion is a right. The biggest problem in this country is the lack of opportunity for the middle class and working class. Racism is real and still continues; but, to view it as the cause of all our problems is merely an attempt to distract from the actual problems themselves. The truth is there are many more homeless people than there are members of the Klan.

Now, here is the real issue and battle. It is spiritual. The bible says that Satan accuses us day and night before God. What do you think he accuses us of? Jesus said that the most important commandment was to love God with all our heart and our neighbor as ourselves. Satan accuses us of not doing that. 

Prohibiting people from saying what they believe is slavery. Stopping free speech is to promote slavery. It used to be illegal to teach slaves to read and write. The English made it illegal to speak Gaelic (Irish language) in Ireland when the British ruled us all. Prohibiting women from controlling their bodies, even when pregnant, is slavery. Prohibiting Nazi's from speaking is slavery. Slavery is wrong, no matter what the excuse. You cannot imprison beliefs.

Mans most basic sin is trying to enslave others and thinking they are better than others. You can be stronger, smarter and more educated and it still does not make you better. If you cut me, do I not bleed? Sorry Shakespeare, I steal good thoughts. We do not have to act on every thought we have and can control our actions. Thoughts are merely emotions put to words and cannot be controlled.


By the way, MSN - Tribune News Service - Rights leaders ask Trump to fire 'alt-right' hero Bannon. The interesting statement in the article is, "Religious and civil rights leaders called on President Donald Trump to fire White House advisers Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka, whose association with the white-supremacist "alt-right" movement has come under heightened scrutiny after Saturday's violent clash in Charlottesville, Va."  The article says that "alt right" and "white supremacist" are the same thing.  Does this mean that if you don't believe that color matters then you are not alt right? If you believe in border control; but, don't care about which race is the best than you are not alt right according to the writer of the article. If you believe in border control do you have to be a homophobe? Not according to the articles writer. He missed the talking points. I used to preach to Hispanic gays that did not feel comfortable around transgenders and they were far from alt right. Most were here as refugees from places where they would be killed for being gay. Bigotry is when you think you know everything about someone because of one belief they have or one characteristic they share.

A Little History About the Law of the Land

If you want to understand the constitution, you have to understand what preceded it. July 4, 1776 is NOT the beginning of the United States. It is when the Declaration of Independence was finalized. The first constitution (actual laws) did not come about until March 1, 1778 when the Articles of Confederation were adopted and in force.

The Articles of Confederation.

The AofC did not really create a nation as we think of one. What they really did was created something more akin to the European Union; but, weaker. One of the things in the AofC was a statement about militias. "No vessel of war shall be kept up in time of peace by any State, except such number only, as shall be deemed necessary by the united States in congress assembled, for the defense of such State, or its trade; nor shall any body of forces be kept up by any State in time of peace, except such number only, as in the judgement of the united States, in congress assembled, shall be deemed requisite to garrison the forts necessary for the defense of such State; but every State shall always keep up a well-regulated and disciplined militia, sufficiently armed and accoutered, and shall provide and constantly have ready for use, in public stores, a due number of field pieces and tents, and a proper quantity of arms, ammunition and camp equipage."

See the part where the AofC used the same term as used in the later Constitution, "well-regulated and disciplined militia"? The exact same reason the current Constitution protected gun ownership. Gun ownership was never considered a personal right by the founders. Sorry guys; but, it just wasn't and more importantly even states were prohibited to have warships without the express permission of the United States. Another interesting point is that Article XI (11) allowed Canada to join the United States if it so chose. And who had the right to vote? That was left up to the individual states and guess what, in the South blacks didn't even count as one vote; but, when they created the constitution, slaves counted as 3/5ths of a vote even though they still could not vote. That meant that the white landowners in the south's votes were each worth 1 and 3/5ths that of people living in the north.

In many ways the Articles of Confederation were a wealthy man's privilege in legal form. It was 13 oligarchies controlling their own individual states, true states rights. The current Constitution was fully ratified in May of 1790 (though 11 states had already ratified and were technically the United States). The US Constitution was meant to limit state rights and strengthen the federal government because the Articles of Confederation had failed so badly.

Lets get back to gun rights for a moment. When preparing the "Bill of Rights", James Madison originally wanted it to say, "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; a well armed, and well regulated militia being the best security of a free country: but no person religiously scrupulous of bearing arms, shall be compelled to render military service in person." Notice how the same sentence is about keeping and bearing arms and the ability to refuse military service in person. That in person part meant that you could pay someone else to do your fighting for you and that happened a lot. The Bill of Rights went into effect on December 15, 1791. You know how we know that the Constitution did not give you an individual right to bear arms? Simple, it was ILLEGAL for slaves to own guns in many states. They were counted as 3/5ths of a person according to the Constitution, yet, they could not own guns. I should also point out that Japanese Americans who were put in determent camps during World War II. Heck, in the 1800s the police often required you to turn in your guns before coming into town and that was cowboys. Even today we prohibit felons from owning guns and from voting. Don't tell me you a constitutional strict constructionist if you think felons lose the ten amendments, that my friends is not in the constitution.

A true strict constructionist attempts to determine what the people who approved the Constitution and amendments meant when they wrote it and lets be clear, they didn't believe the same things we do. The Constitution was meant to keep state oligarchies in power while giving greater central control over the nation to the central government. If you want to be really strict in your construction of the Constitution, the abolition of slavery is sort of a dodgy question as there was no Constitutional Amendment abolishing it, that was done by executive decree, specifically, The Emancipation Proclamation and really only applied to Confederate states.

Bees, Sperm Counts and Questions

International Business Times - Sperm Count Declines Worlwide, Western Men See Record Low Fertility. Lets start with the basic facts and point out where the title of the article is intentionally misleading. Sperm counts have NOT declined worldwide, just in the western nations. There has been a 59% decrease in sperm counts in men in Europe, the North America, Australia and New Zealand since 1973. They have found NO decline in South America, Africa or Asia.

Oxford Academic - Temporal trends in sperm count: a systematic review and meta-regression analysis.  Here is a link to the actual published study.

While this has been studied since the early 1970s, scientists still have no idea as to what is causing it, or so we are told. In fact, they have stated that smoking, obesity and even global warming may be causing it; but, those are lies. Lets start with smoking, it has been steadily decreasing in the west since the late 1960s, not increasing. However in the places where sperm counts are not going down, smoking has either remained relatively the same or increased, such as in Asia. Obesity also does not explain it. As for global warming, that is just laughable as global means global and the impact would be worldwide, not just in western countries.

So why doesn't the media care more about this issue? Why aren't western governments freaking out and spending the same amount of attention to this issue that they do to global warming. I mean, after all, at this rate the sperm count in western males will be zero in another 40 years. It's just math. Could this be due to hormones in our foods? Could it be due to chemicals in our environment (actually the west regulates chemicals in our environment much more than does China, India, Africa or South America where sperm counts are not declining)? I guess the only people that don't need to be worried about global warming are people living in the western world because we won't live to see it.

CBS News - 40 percent of U.S. bee colonies died in past year. In 2015 this report came out. Again, very large numbers and no overwhelming concern from the media. It is mentioned; but, not very often, certainly not as often as whether or not Trump likes one or two scoops of Ice Cream or whether or not transgenders should be in the military (all 250 of them). So what is killing the bees? The most likely candidate is pesticides.

It is bad enough that western societies have dropped their birth rate by refusing to have children, in the future they won't be able to. Oh, and just in case you think this is a "white male" thing, it is not, it is all westerners, blacks, whites and Arab, Asian, African immigrants who move to the western world. The drop is not genetic, it is environmental.

Speech Crime

USA Today - Suicide texting case sets bad precedent, experts say.

CNN - The text messages that led up to teen's suicide.

A 17 year old girl got regular text messages from her boyfriend where he said he was going to kill himself. At first she tried to get him to go to therapy and much later told him to just do it. He did. He killed himself. She was charged with murder and ended up getting two and a half years for involuntary manslaughter.

Murder by speech. Murder by text message? It was not murder, it was not manslaughter. It was suicide. My wife left me for another man and took everything I had. I did not commit suicide, though I was quite ready to die. Even Jim Jones actually put a gun to people's heads to make them drink the Koolaid. Please tell me, was she responsible for not stopping him. She didn't bring up the idea, he did. I guess she wasn't a very good psychologist at 17. Maybe she was a really dumb child; but, she was still a child. She is now paying for his sin, not hers.

Tell me you have never wished someone dead. Tell me you have never told another to just die or wished that they would. We are going to charge you for the air you breath, a carbon tax. And, we are going to hold you guilty for bad thoughts and bad words, hate speech. Do you think that slaves wished their masters dead? The most oppressive slavery starts by outlawing words and then thoughts.
