A WIN IN THE U.S.  SIXTH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS. On August 18, 2014 in Nifadev v. Holder, (Case No. 13-3704/4222
6th Cir. 2014), the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit held that Mikheil B. Nifadev has proven his claim that he
had suffered persecution by reason of his Russian ethnicity at the hands of the security and regular police of Uzbekistan.   The
Court vacated the decision of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) in Washington, D.C. which had denied Mr. Nifadev asylum,
and the Court remanded the case with additional instructions to the United States Attorney General, including that the BIA should
determine whether the BIA should also reconsider its denial of Nifadev’s application for withholding of removal and protection
under Convention Against Torture (abbreviated CAT for Convention Against Torture And Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading
Treatment or Punishment of the United Nations) in light of the opinion of the Court.  The Sixth Circuit opinion essentially and
explicitly held that
"[b]ecause the IJ [Immigration Judge] appears to have erred in her determination that Nifadev did not suffer
past persecution and because the IJ clearly misinterpreted Nifadev’s credible testimony regarding the ethnic animus of the
Uzbekistan security officials, we find that Nifadev has made out a credible case of being a refugee under the definitions of
8 U.S.C. § 1158(b)(1)(A)."
 [Emphasis added].   The United States Immigration Court in Cleveland, Ohio, had initially
found Mr.  Nifadev and his witnesses to be credible but declined to grant asylum because it erroneously determined that
Mr. Nifadev had NOT suffered persecution.   Shown in photograph on the right is Mr. Mikheil B. Nifadev with Charleston
C. K. Wang, Esq.  who represented Mr. Nifadev during trial and both appeals. To read complete opinion, please

Pursuant to the Sixth Circuit opinion, the BIA on January 5, 2015, ordered the Immigration Court to grant asylum to Mr. Nifadev.

Some Moo Moo Ruminations on Assault Style Rifles

On October 1, 2017, Stephen Craig Paddock, a 64-year-old Nevada resident, after secretly
hauling 23 rifles and one handgun to a room on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay Resort in
Las Vegas, opened fire on concert-goers below.  He killed 58 and wounded 851 (were
some of the injured trampled?).  He was the lone shooter and he could only fire one rifle at
a time. The other 22 stayed on the floor or wherever.   1 or 23 rifles do not determine the
number of victims.  A new or well maintained modern rifle seldom malfunctions and even if
one does, a second rifle will continue killing.  No need for 23 - the man was going out of
his mind.  So what killed and wounded so many people?

HE HAD THOUSANDS OF ROUNDS OF AMMUNITION!  Official sources state that he fired
over 1100 rounds although the exact number is not published.  Assuming a hit rate of 1 in
3 shots, he must have fired close to 3000 rounds.  Even if he was an expert shooter, he
had to fire 900 rounds.   He shot from 300-400 yards and at that range the 5.56 mm bullet is
not expected to pass through a victim - indeed the anti-personnel soft nose bullet is
designed to flatten or fragment upon impact and the pieces will "bounce" inside the body
to cause maximum shock.  If some of the injured were trampled so fewer rounds perhaps.  
Although he made trajectory drawings to increase accuracy, it was impossible to have a
1:1 hit ratio because the shooter loosened automatic fire at some distance on a outdoor
gathering of 20,000.   We now know that he had semi-automatic “civilian” rifles of both .223
(5.56mm NATO) and .308 (7.62mm NATO) calibers.  Furthermore, he used bump-stocks to
convert the AR-15 type .223 rifles to automatic fire.  The AR-15 type rifles are based on the
design of the military M-16 rifle which is quite capable of selective automatic fire of 600
rounds per minute.

As the crowd began to scatter, he likely switched to semi-automatic mode.  By then the
crowd were running and hiding some among the bodies and so were even harder to hit.   
After it was all over, investigators found another 1600 rounds in the trunk of his car.  
Another 19 firearms were found in his home.

An U. S. infantry rifleman normally carries into a firefight 7 magazines of 5.56 mm NATO for
his or her M-16.  Each magazine holds 30 rounds = 210 rounds basic combat load.   Larger
capacity magazines are deemed unwieldy and difficult to fire prone.  Reloading an AR-15
style rifle by changing pre-loaded magazines or even using 10 round stripper-clips to load
the magazine is simple and quick.  The typical police officer carries a loaded semi-
automatic pistol with 2 extra magazines totaling around 40-50 rounds.  Statistically, a
“gunfight” involving police officers is at close quarters (say 1-5 yards), involve less than
ten rounds fired and is over in a few seconds.  Unfortunately, a lone officer approaching in
his or her police cruiser or on foot is tactically "outgunned" by a determined rifleman
armed with an AR-15 and carrying hundreds of rounds of 5.56mm or even quite possibly a
battle rifle chambered for 7.62 mm NATO rounds.  It is interesting to note that the larger
7.62 mm cartridge was discarded for general infantry use because its heavier recoil made
the rifle difficult to control especially in automatic select fire
and troops complained about
the weight of the 7.62 mm battle rifles, especially when operating in difficult terrain.  The
Las Vegas shooter had both calibers in his room.

Ammunition whether 5.56 mm or 7.62 mm at close range will penetrate the sides of
approaching police (civilian) vehicles (and also many non-military body armor).  The
average distance of fire-fights between infantry troops is up to ranges of 200 yards
(although recent urban combat experience may lower the fighting distance).  Assault rifles
are designed for that statistic in mind with sliding rear “iron-sights” elevating usually out
to a "maximum effective range” of 600 yards (the Las Vegas shooter was killing people at
around 500 yards albeit shooting from the 32nd floor).  One can imagine the
carnage the

Not This; But What?
Reflections on Life In the Turn Lane
by Beverley Jones
March 17, 2018

Could it be that we’re getting the hang of how to live through these contentious times?   I’ve just returned from a community breakfast where a panel discussed ‘what it means to be human’.  Led by
broadcaster Krista Tippit, more than one hundred of us listened to Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann, Islamic scholar Dr. Waleed El-Ansary, and Rabbi Abie Ingbar reflect on how the depth
and origins of our three mono-theistic religions resonate in these times of disintegration. The fact that we all were there, thinking together about something other than the precarious state of the nation
felt remarkable.

It is stark to be living in these “between” times – aware of what used to be, seeing the injustice and antagonisms of the present, and stimulated by new visions of how our lives together could  – and
very well might be – in the future.  As we connect to the world through our digital portals, we get some sense of this temporal churning, but too often get stuck in a present defined by the media’s
love of conflict and commentary on minutia.  It seems to me we’ve created three sub-cultures based on these temporal perspectives: past, present and future. The trick of staying sane may lie in the
attempt to balance these views. More and more I’m aware of the deep caring and connection people have for their personal viewpoint. Letting go seems to cause great pain.

My “alter ego”, Wendell Berry, is a case in point.  I was excited to learn that he has a new book out, The Art of Loading Brush– I had missed connecting with his wisdom.  Yet, I am disappointed to read
that he, like many of us, seems to be “stuck” in the “way things were”.  He refers to how his wife Tanya describes himself,  “Tanya Berry, my wife, says that my principal asset as a writer has been my
knack for repeating myself.” Anyone who has read much of Berry knows the truth of her observation, yet that repetition has exposed us “city folk” to an alternative way to live and see the world.   Berry
describes an allegiance to the land and the communities it creates.  He has become a spokesperson for a movement toward acquiring simpler, more humane ways to live than our industrialized,
competitive, monetized economy, which harms the land as well as community.  For me his viewpoint has been hugely instructive; I have always craved Berry’s lived knowledge and his descriptions of
community – comforted that someone actually lives that way! Jaber Crow is my all-time favorite novel.

So I delighted in this new continuation of his work…for about 102 pages.  Then I began to miss some connection to the present, to the world the rest of us actually live in.  I’m now on page 159 and
haven’t found it yet.  That’s not Berry’s fault.  I need to make these connections myself.  I’ve needed his understanding as a framework in which to put the possible comparisons between then and now.  
Just as watching movies of the 50’s an 60’s reminds me how stifling the world was for women of that – my – period.

Berry, my contemporary, is just one example of holding onto “the past”.  I have friends who readily dwell on what they did as children – games played, values taught, communal gatherings.  I have to
dig really deep to connect to my childhood’s culture.  I’m more of a “present” person: I see what’s happening now and am drawn to reflection on the consequences of decisions being made: most often
against Berry’s agrarian world, against spiritual values, against justice.  Frustration often accompanies this perspective just as comfort seems to salve dwellers of the “past”.

Some of us live in the future. The founders of the electric car, Tesla, and the new SpaceX rocket, come to mind.  They envision what the world would be like if…...  In addition to the fascinating
‘hardware’ of these entrepreneurs we have social “futurists” – people who dream of other ways for us to live together – abolitionists, civil rights pioneers, feminists and now those creating anti-violence
social movements to eliminate gun violence and sexual harassment.

Our culture seems to be taking giant leaps into the future, stepping over traditions and snail-paced evolution.  Donald Trump is showing us that we don’t have to do things the way we’ve always done
them.  I remember Steve Jobs saying in an interview that once he figured out that he didn’t have to follow the tenets of the past he was free to invent.  Because of our present topsy-turvy government
we now are free to invent, to create new ways to be together, to let go of the past as prologue. - Thanks, Donald, for showing us how not to do things. -  Oh, please let us learn this lesson.

Not This; But What?
Reflections on Life In the Turn Lane
by Beverley Jones
March 17, 2018

Could it be that we’re getting the hang of how to live through these contentious times?   I’ve just returned from a community breakfast where a panel discussed ‘what it means to be human’.  Led by
broadcaster Krista Tippit, more than one hundred of us listened to Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann, Islamic scholar Dr. Waleed El-Ansary, and Rabbi Abie Ingbar reflect on how the depth
and origins of our three mono-theistic religions resonate in these times of disintegration. The fact that we all were there, thinking together about something other than the precarious state of the nation
felt remarkable.

It is stark to be living in these “between” times – aware of what used to be, seeing the injustice and antagonisms of the present, and stimulated by new visions of how our lives together could  – and
very well might be – in the future.  As we connect to the world through our digital portals, we get some sense of this temporal churning, but too often get stuck in a present defined by the media’s
love of conflict and commentary on minutia.  It seems to me we’ve created three sub-cultures based on these temporal perspectives: past, present and future. The trick of staying sane may lie in the
attempt to balance these views. More and more I’m aware of the deep caring and connection people have for their personal viewpoint. Letting go seems to cause great pain.

My “alter ego”, Wendell Berry, is a case in point.  I was excited to learn that he has a new book out, The Art of Loading Brush– I had missed connecting with his wisdom.  Yet, I am disappointed to read
that he, like many of us, seems to be “stuck” in the “way things were”.  He refers to how his wife Tanya describes himself,  “Tanya Berry, my wife, says that my principal asset as a writer has been my
knack for repeating myself.” Anyone who has read much of Berry knows the truth of her observation, yet that repetition has exposed us “city folk” to an alternative way to live and see the world.   Berry
describes an allegiance to the land and the communities it creates.  He has become a spokesperson for a movement toward acquiring simpler, more humane ways to live than our industrialized,
competitive, monetized economy, which harms the land as well as community.  For me his viewpoint has been hugely instructive; I have always craved Berry’s lived knowledge and his descriptions of
community – comforted that someone actually lives that way! Jaber Crow is my all-time favorite novel.

So I delighted in this new continuation of his work…for about 102 pages.  Then I began to miss some connection to the present, to the world the rest of us actually live in.  I’m now on page 159 and
haven’t found it yet.  That’s not Berry’s fault.  I need to make these connections myself.  I’ve needed his understanding as a framework in which to put the possible comparisons between then and now.  
Just as watching movies of the 50’s an 60’s reminds me how stifling the world was for women of that – my – period.

Berry, my contemporary, is just one example of holding onto “the past”.  I have friends who readily dwell on what they did as children – games played, values taught, communal gatherings.  I have to
dig really deep to connect to my childhood’s culture.  I’m more of a “present” person: I see what’s happening now and am drawn to reflection on the consequences of decisions being made: most often
against Berry’s agrarian world, against spiritual values, against justice.  Frustration often accompanies this perspective just as comfort seems to salve dwellers of the “past”.

Some of us live in the future. The founders of the electric car, Tesla, and the new SpaceX rocket, come to mind.  They envision what the world would be like if…...  In addition to the fascinating
‘hardware’ of these entrepreneurs we have social “futurists” – people who dream of other ways for us to live together – abolitionists, civil rights pioneers, feminists and now those creating anti-violence
social movements to eliminate gun violence and sexual harassment.

Our culture seems to be taking giant leaps into the future, stepping over traditions and snail-paced evolution.  Donald Trump is showing us that we don’t have to do things the way we’ve always done
them.  I remember Steve Jobs saying in an interview that once he figured out that he didn’t have to follow the tenets of the past he was free to invent.  Because of our present topsy-turvy government
we now are free to invent, to create new ways to be together, to let go of the past as prologue. - Thanks, Donald, for showing us how not to do things. -  Oh, please let us learn this lesson.

        DEMOCRACY IS NOT A HARLOT.......

“Who are the friends of democracy, and also how is the word “democracy” to be
interpreted? My idea of it is that the plain, humble, common man, just the ordinary
man who keeps a wife and family, who goes off to fight for his country when it is in
trouble, goes to the poll at the appropriate time, and puts his cross on the ballot-
paper showing the candidate he wishes to be elected to Parliament—that he is
the foundation of democracy. And it is essential to this foundation that this man or
woman should do this without fear, and without any form of intimidation or
victimisation. He marks his ballot paper in strict secrecy, and then elected
representatives meet and together decide what government, or even, in times of
stress, what form of government, they wish to have for their country. If that is
democracy I salute it. I espouse it. I would work for it….

“One must have some respect for democracy and not use the word too lightly.
The last thing which resembles democracy is mob law, with bands of gangsters,
armed with deadly weapons, forcing their way into great cities, seizing the police
stations and key points of government, endeavouring to introduce a totalitarian
regime with an iron hand, and clamouring, as they can nowadays if they get power
[interruption] to shoot everyone who is politically inconvenient as part of a
purge of those who are said to have collaborated with the Germans during the
occupation….

“Democracy is not based on violence or terrorism, but on reason, on fair play, on
freedom, on respecting the rights of other people. Democracy is no harlot to be
picked up in the street by a man with a tommy-gun. I trust the people, the mass
of the people, in almost any country, but I like to make sure that it is the people
and not a gang of bandits who think that by violence they can overturn constituted
authority, in some cases ancient Parliaments, Governments, and States….
“We march along an onerous and painful path. Poor old England! (Perhaps I ought to say “Poor old Britain!”) We have to assume the burden of the most thankless
tasks, and in undertaking them to be scoffed at, criticised, and opposed from every quarter; but at least we know where we are making for, know the end of the road, know
what is our objective….If I am blamed for this action I will gladly accept my dismissal at the hands of the House….I shall call upon the House as a matter of confidence in His
Majesty’s Government, and of confidence in the spirit with which we have marched from one peril to another till victory is in sight, to reject such pretensions with the scorn
that they deserve….”

Speech of the Prime Minister to the House of Commons on December 8, 1944 regarding the necessity of protecting Athens, Greece from civil war and in defense
against a motion for a vote of non-confidence against the Government.  Thirty members opposed the Government, nearly 300 members voted confidence. “Here again,”
wrote Winston Churchill, “was a moment in which the House of Commons showed its enduring strength and authority.” (The Second World War, Volume 6, Triumph and
Tragedy, British Intervention in Greece.)
