Ben Bullard reports on just how easy it is for our representatives can spend $1.1 trillion without even reading the bill:
http://personalliberty.com/2014/01/20/here-are-the-republicans-who-helped-pass-the-1-1-trillion-spending-bill/
Pelosi’s past statements about the cupboard being bare sound kind of hollow, don’t they?
Here’s a list of 359 representatives that need to go:
http://www.heritageactionscorecard.com/votes/vote/h21-2014
http://www.conservativehq.com/node/16062
You can’t justify a yes vote without reading the bill, I can guarantee that our representatives didn’t do that before voting for it (it was over 1,500 pages).
Indiana has 9 representatives in congress, they all voted in favor of this bill, that’s where we start.

Sun News in Canada did a story on last year’s flood in High River, Alberta that the RCMP (police) took advantage of to break and enter private residents (15:04):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBSSGL64Xdc#t=12
To steal citizens firearms.  Sure am glad nothing like this could ever happen in the US (sarcasm intended).  You need to watch this.
Here is the full 1:11:01 documentary “Broken Trust” if you have the time or inclination:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEQiCDYowi4
Gun registration is how the RCMP knew which houses to break into, that is why the US must never have a gun registry.  I will not comply.

Here’s a copy of your letter to Congress. Please share it with friends. Ask them to send a letter too. Grow the Downsize DC Army!
[divide]
Subject: End Drug Prohibition

End Drug Prohibition.

A REAL government protects persons from violence, theft, and fraud.
Drug Prohibition, on the other hand, PROMOTES violence, theft, and fraud. Its purpose is to…
* empower politicians, and…
* empower gangsters, so that violent crime continues, which… *”justifies” politicians grabbing even more power!
One example is the DEA’s partnership with a Mexican drug gang: http://onforb.es/1d5eykA I am disturbed and ANGRY by this report. It’s clear to me that the purpose of the War on Drugs ISN’T to get rid of drugs, but to… continue the War on Drugs. Which means, more taxes, more police equipment, and more prisons to financially benefit your cronies.
So let me be clear: I DO NOT CONSENT TO DRUG PROHIBITION!
It’s NOT YOUR BUSINESS to tell people what they can ingest, or what they can purchase.
Furthermore, the Constitution prohibits YOU from enacting and enforcing drug laws. If a Constitutional Amendment was required for Alcohol Prohibition, why isn’t an Amendment required for the Prohibition of marijuana or other drugs?
Drug Prohibition is Exhibit A, and incontestable proof, that this “federal government” lacks legitimacy. End this insane “war.”

Here’s a copy of your letter to Congress. Please share it with friends. Ask them to send a letter too. Grow the Downsize DC Army!
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
Subject: The Read the Bills Act
Co-sponsor the Read the Bills Act (S.1665).

We need an open process. We need the Read the Bills Act, introduced by Senator Rand Paul.
The omnibus spending bill to be voted on next week is proof. This bill…
* costs the average family about $10,000, but…
* was written by Appropriations Committee aides over the holidays IN SECRET Most members of Congress were shut out of the process, and the bill STILL isn’t complete. With a January 15 shutdown looming…
* You will have just a few days, AT MOST, to find out what’s in the bill
* If history is any guide, you may not even receive it until the day of the vote
* In the rush to pass it, many bad provisions and corrupt deals will be buried in the text, undetected until it’s too late.
I DO NOT CONSENT to seeing my tax dollars stolen from me and essentially spent in secret like this.
YOU shouldn’t put up with this either, you represent me! Your vote for this bill would be nothing more than a rubber stamp. You should INSIST on getting the chance to read the bill and be part of the process. You’re supposed to be a representative!
The Read the Bills Act would allow you to do your job. Final bills would be posted online for seven days before votes on passage. This would allow you to guarantee your constituents that you had read, or heard read, every bill for which you vote.
This would also create an incentive for shorter bills, making your job EASIER.
I demand that you represent me…
* Oppose this omnibus bill, ESPECIALLY if you aren’t given the chance to read it
* Co-sponsor the Read the Bills Act
I’ll be watching closely what you do, and please don’t respond with some canned answer from an aide saying how we agree on this issue…you CAN do something about this if you desire to do so.

Police raid; unintended discharge; Krystal shot in the head and died.  I think no-knock raids should be made illegal.
I think officers on an elite SWAT team should know the 4 basic rules of firearm safety, an accidental discharge should never occur.  Krystal was a mother of three boys with one misdemeanor for disorderly conduct on her criminal record.

Emailing my representatives so I will feel better.

Here’s a copy of your letter to Congress. Please share it with friends. Ask them to send a letter too. Grow the Downsize DC Army!
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
Subject: The Read the Bills Act
Co-sponsor the Read the Bills Act (S.1665).
What Congressional “leaders” did last week was nothing short of CRIMINAL.
In the spirit of “bipartisanship,” they worked behind closed doors to…
* Make a budget deal that repeals the sequester and increases the deficit.
* Make another deal on a $633 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), with 79 amendments.
In short, they’re trying to…
* increase the national debt, which means a tax increase on children who can’t vote.
* steal over $5,600 from the average family to fund the bloated Pentagon.
Even worse…
I know that YOU don’t know what’s really in these bills. You and your staff haven’t had time to read and digest them.
And neither did I.
This isn’t “governing.” This is looting!
And I DO NOT CONSENT!
If this was actually a representative government…
* You would read the bills you support before voting for them.
* I would have a chance to read the bills and tell you my opinion about them.
The Read the Bills Act would make this happen.
Remember, you work for ME, not for your party whip. I DEMAND that you…
* Demand full readings and debate on the budget deal and NDAA
* Co-sponsor the Read the Bills Act.
I will be watching what you do.

Sharing a couple of letters to my representatives this issue…It makes me feel better when they know how pissed I am.

Here’s a copy of your letter to Congress. Please share it with friends. Ask them to send a letter too. Grow the Downsize DC Army!
[divide]
Subject: DownsizeDC.org’s “One Subject at a Time Act” (OSTA)
I would notice and appreciate your co-sponsorship of the “One Subject at a Time Act” (OSTA), HR 2113 and S 1664.
A truly representative government would require that bills be limited to one subject, as OSTA requires. It would prevent Congress from attaching unrelated bills to popular or “must-pass” bills. Each bill would have to stand on its own merits.
This is important, because bills with multiple subjects reflect Congressional deal-making. They do NOT have the consent of the people.
Congress would also do itself a favor by passing OSTA. You would function better.
For instance…
What if OSTA was in force today, while the Senate is considering S 1197, the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)?
* Sen. Jay Rockefeller’s proposed cybersecurity amendment would be disallowed. This bill is a central-planning scheme about domestic technology policy, NOT Defense.
* An Iran sanctions amendment would ALSO be disallowed. it’s about foreign policy, NOT Defense.
* Historically, NDAA has been full of un-related pork.
Senators have proposed a whopping 507 amendments to the NDAA so far.
How many are actually about Defense?
How many aren’t?
You pretend to be my “representative.” If that were true, I would be far from alone in demanding that you€¦
* Vote AGAINST any unrelated amendment to the NDAA…
* Vote AGAINST the 2014 NDAA if it has unrelated amendments…
* Co-sponsor the One Subject at a Time Act!
I will be watching what you do. In fact, I’m waging a peaceful campaign to discredit you and your institution, based entirely on your behavior. You can do the right thing, or you can give me more conversational fodder. Since all government rests upon the consent of the governed, I think you’re on thin ice.

Subject: Cap The Debt!
Do NOT raise the debt ceiling ever again.
The latest bipartisan budget deal is further evidence that power corrupts. It…
* repeals the meager “sequester” spending reductions.
* increases spending now with the phony promise of cuts years from now.
This deal is the result of BOTH parties refusing to recognize the IMMORALITY of their actions.
Consider…
If it’s wrong for me to take my neighbor’s money at gunpoint, how is it RIGHT for armed government agents to do the same?
Deficit spending is just hidden taxation, and it’s WRONG.
After all…
* If it’s wrong to force children to pay the debts of their parents, why is it RIGHT to charge the next generation higher taxes to pay for today’s federal deficits?
* If it’s wrong for counterfeiters to print money and cheapen the dollar’s value, why is it RIGHT for the Federal Reserve to print money to lend the “government?”
Right and wrong do NOT depend on majorities votes in Congress!
You have NO LEGITIMATE AUTHORITY to do what we as individuals aren’t morally permitted to do.
So I demand you stop stealing!
Instead…
Cap the debt and balance the budget by CUTTING SPENDING.
And do so IMMEDIATELY.

Here’s a copy of your letter to Congress. Please share it with friends. Ask them to send a letter too. Grow the Downsize DC Army!
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
Subject: Make the FDA advisory, not mandatory.
Make the FDA advisory, not mandatory.

I hold you personally responsible for everything the FDA does. Where else could I place this responsibility, given that I have no representation at the FDA? Here’s the latest example of criminality you permitted…
The FDA has prohibited 23 and Me from offering its genetic testing service.
This is wrong in every possible way. Please be clear about this…
My genes belong to me. I have an inalienable right to sequence them whenever I damn well please, and to hire whomever I choose to perform that service. It’s up to me how much I know about my own genetics. This is my choice, not yours.
But you and the FDA dare to presume otherwise. Not only have you denied me access to this service, but you have also stolen the livelihood of the people who work for 23 and Me. This is theft. This is criminal. This is evil. But it gets worse…
Retarding this kind of service impedes medical progress. The future lies with personalized medicine, based on genetic testing. The FDA is stuck in the past, relying on statistical guesses that pretend there is no genetic difference between individuals. The FDA blocks the road that leads to a bright future.
I would think that both Congress and the FDA would have learned the lesson of the AIDS crisis. There is only one reason we have effective treatments for AIDS today – because intense public pressure forced the FDA to stand aside while scientists and companies brought these treatments to market. Please stop being stupid — the approach that worked in the case of AIDS needs to be the standard policy.
Make the FDA advisory, not mandatory. If Congress can’t actually step up and represent us — if such binding decisions can be made by unelected bureaucrats — then we’re left to wonder, why should Congress even exist?

The Pentagon cannot account for $8.5 trillion in taxpayer money.
I would appear that the Pentagon has cooked the books regarding accountability:
http://personalliberty.com/2013/11/19/pentagon-cant-account-for-8-5-trillion-taxpayer-dollars/
http://politicaloutcast.com/2013/11/illinois-trillions-dollars-american-loyalty-pentagon/
Remember what happened the last time this was discovered (and it was only $2.3 trillion then)?
I’ll give you a hint, it was September 10th, 2001.

Harry Reid uses the nuclear option and removes the 60 vote majority rule in the senate for judicial nominations.  This changes everything, the GOP thought about doing this when they had a majority a few years ago but decided against it.
http://www.koat.com/news/politics/reid-moves-toward-invoking-nuclear-option-in-senate/-/9153652/23086524/-/5n8w6fz/-/index.html
This is designed to allow Obama to pack the courts (not – SCOTUS) with liberal judges who do not respect or follow the Constitution (and will have lifetime appointments).
Here are a couple of videos that you need to watch to better understand what just happened (2:09-McConnell:2013, 2:43-Biden:2005):

Here’s a copy of the email I sent my senator Joe Donnelly.  Can you tell I’m more than a little pissed about this?:

You do not respect the Constitution or the constituents you represent.
You have destroyed the intent of the upper-house.
If the 17th amendment were repealed, the state of Indiana would recall you for not respecting your state.
A typical party line vote that helps destroy this nation.
I would like an answer (citizen to citizen) on why you voted in favor of this rule change that destroyed over 200+ years of accepted Constitutional law that demands the party of the minority be heard.
I will do what I can to insure you never represent me or my fellow Indiana citizens again.

It looks like the final battle will be in July 2014, parents and students need to prepare for battle by educating themselves on the standards.
If anyone takes an honest, hard look at the curriculum of common core they will make the determination for themselves that this does not help the next generation of students to be free thinkers.

Subject: Indefinite Detention

Repeal the detainee provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (Sections 1021 & 1022).

The House had a chance to repeal them when it passed the 2014 NDAA earlier this year. I DEMAND that the Senate version and final bill contains their repeal.
These provisions authorize State kidnapping. Among them…
* Military detention of foreigners suspected of being terrorists is REQUIRED.
* Military detention is the preferred OPTION for American terror suspects.
* No charges need to be filed, and no trials must be held.
* Prisoners are to be held “until the end of hostilities.”
I know the House passed an amendment requiring habeas proceedings for U.S. suspects, but it DOESN’T require a subsequent trial.
And I DO NOT CONSENT!
State kidnapping does NOT make me safer from terrorists. Rather, they make me LESS safe from an out-of-control government. The number of innocents detained at Guantanamo Bay gives me NO comfort that only the “bad guys” will be swept up.
Moreover, this State kidnapping is unconstitutional and immoral. Or do you think it’s wrong only when other countries do it?
Indefinite Detention is perhaps the strongest evidence that Congress doesn’t know how to govern. Worse, it’s evidence you don’t know right from wrong.
Turn from this dark, destructive path. Repeal Indefinite Detention.

Subject: DownsizeDC.org’s “One Subject at a Time Act” (OSTA)

I would notice and appreciate your co-sponsorship of the “One Subject at a Time Act” (OSTA), HR 2113 and S 1664.

I believe every proposal must stand or fall entirely on its own merits.
Stop passing unpopular bills by combining them with popular measures that are completely unrelated. I consider this practice to be dishonest and criminal.
You can do something to fix this right now. The “One Subject at a Time Act” was introduced by Tom Marino in the House (HR 2113) and Rand Paul in the Senate (S.1664).
I CAN THINK OF NO GOOD REASON WHY YOU WOULD NOT BECOME A CO-SPONSOR TOO.
Please be clear, I DENY MY CONSENT for you to continue combining unrelated legislation. BE RESPONSIBLE. Co-sponsor this legislation.

By the time I release this issue, the winner will be known; but the VA governor race is a good barometer  for 2014 (1:46):
http://conservativebyte.com/2013/11/tea-party-protest-obama-mcauliffe-rally/

And I stumbled into this article on Tuesday.  According to Michael Lotfi, Joe Liemandt (a software billionaire and huge Obama supporter) has spent over $150K in support of libertarian gubernatorial candidate Robert Sarvis’ campaign.
http://benswann.com/primary-obama-campaign-donor-paying-for-sarvis-va-race/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=nl
Another attempt to split the fiscal conservative vote?  Another reason that Ron Paul openly endorsed and campaigned for the republican?  Politics can be a very dirty business.

Reince Priebus (RNC chair) has some explaining to do when it comes to how little the RNC spent in the VA governor race:

Outspent 3 to 1 by most estimates.  Sad when politics comes down to money spent, but that’s a fact.

Exit polling indicated that the D money that poured into the L ticket actually pulled more D votes than R votes:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/local/2013-elections/exit-polls/
My brain hurts.

Nick Gillespie op-ed on the VA governor race:
http://ideas.time.com/2013/11/06/stop-scapegoating-third-party-candidates-for-election-results/

Joe Wolverton agrees with Nick in his own op-ed:

Here’s a copy of your letter to Congress. Please share it with friends. Ask them to send a letter too. Grow the Downsize DC Army!

[divide]

Subject: Another example…
I deny my consent to “government” criminality.

I wish to go on record now, I have done a fairly good job in preparing my family financially for my retirement irregardless of the fact that the money I have had confiscated from me  through social security will probably not be there for my use, do to government mismanagement of SS over the past 80 years.

The International Monetary Fund wants you to steal my retirement savings. You can find the evidence in their October Fiscal Monitor Report.http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/fm/2013/02/pdf/fm1302.pdf
I quote from page 49…..
“The sharp deterioration of the public finances in many countries has revived interest in a ‘capital levy’— a one-off tax on private wealth—as an exceptional measure to restore debt sustainability.”
It’s very clear to me that sustaining the government’s culture of debt is what matters most to the political class. The report continues…
“The appeal is that such a tax, if it is implemented before avoidance is possible and there is a belief that it will never be repeated, does not distort behavior (and may be seen by some as fair)…”
And here we have two more pet themes of the criminal political class — engineering our behavior and anti-wealth bigotry. The report continues…
“The conditions for success are strong, but also need to be weighed against the risks of the alternatives, which include repudiating public debt or inflating it away…”
This makes it quite clear that world “governments” are effectively bankrupt. You have all made promises that you cannot keep, except by confiscating the savings of innocent people.
Please notice that I place the word “government” in scare quotes. No institution so committed to criminality can honestly be called a true government. The report continues…
“The tax rates needed to bring down public debt to pre-crisis levels, moreover, are sizable: reducing debt ratios to end-2007 levels would require (for a sample of 15 euro area countries) a tax rate of about 10 percent on households with positive net wealth.”
The idea that politicians would actually use these confiscations to reduce debt, is laughable. They would simply be used to sustain and perpetuate the debt. And the idea that the confiscation would be a onetime event is equally laughable.
This matter was brought to public attention by Bill Frezza, writing at Forbes magazine. (http://onforb.es/19K50xd) Mr. Frezza correctly observes that the proposed theft cannot be limited to the so-called 1% with the most wealth. Not even 100% of their assets would be sufficient to “sustain the debt.” This means….
The theft will be aimed at MY savings. All responsible people will be punished for the irresponsibility of the political class. Please know in advance that I deny consent to this criminality.
Please also understand that any such action will signal the end of your legitimacy. Solve your problems by cutting spending, not through confiscations.

This requires more than the usual “canned response” from an aide.  I would like a personal message from you that you will NOT do anything to my personal retirement funds that I will construe as theft.

October 28, 2013
Dear Mr. Sheetz,
I appreciate the time you took to express your thoughts about Social Security. Like you, I believe Social Security is vital to the financial security and well-being of millions of America’s seniors, orphaned children, and disabled workers. As your Senator, I will continue to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to make this program stronger and ensure that the nation’s promise to our seniors is kept.
Established in 1935, the program was designed as a contract between our government and the American people to serve as a safety net for our most vulnerable citizens and ensure dignity in old age. As you may know, the current Social Security program is structured as a pay-as-you-go system in which taxes collected today pay for the benefits of today’s retirees.
In the coming years the number of Americans receiving Social Security benefits will grow faster than the number of paying workers, as members of the large Baby Boomer generation begin to reach retirement age and Americans increasingly live longer.  The Social Security Board of Trustees has projected that incoming tax revenues and the trust fund reserves will become insufficient to maintain full benefits in 2033, three years earlier than previously predicted.  Tough decisions will need to be made to address the financial shortfalls and to ensure the future health of the Social Security system.
While a workable solution will ultimately require bipartisan support, I will oppose any proposal that attempts to privatize the system or introduces unnecessary risks that gamble with your Social Security benefits.  Rest assured, I will work hard to ensure that Social Security maintains its integrity so that current and future generations can continue to receive the benefit to which they are entitled.
It is a privilege to represent you and all Hoosiers in the U.S. Senate. Your continued correspondence is welcome and helps me to better represent our state. I encourage you to write, call, or email if my office can ever be of assistance. You can also check out my Facebook page and follow me on Twitter by visiting my website.

Ben Bullard reports on agencies of government fighting over regulating electronic vapor devices:

If there’s money to be made, you can bet a lobby group will be paid well to support the opinion:

How about we decide if we want ELECTED officials to do anything about it before we go down the agency regulation street.


Another abuse of eminent domain by a city (Seattle, WA):

This is flat out wrong.  When private property is stolen in such a matter we no longer have rights to own property, just lease it (through property taxes), until government finds a better way to profit from it.

No reason to think we in the US are the only country to utilize propaganda.  Rupert Murdock’s The Times of London has a whopper for us as well:

Baby snipers employed by Assad in Syria.  Anybody remember the babies yanked from incubators story?  I am fairly confident that this entire article is fiction, read for yourself and decide.

I’m sure many others in congress agree…It’s tough to get by on $174K a year (and numerous other ways to pad your salary legally, but only because the rules we follow don’t apply to congress).

http://thenewamerican.com/usnews/foreign-policy/item/16802-pakistan-s-sharif-asks-obama-to-end-drone-strikes
The nerve of Nawaz, a sovereign nation (Pakistan) ASKING another nation (US) to stop bombing them.  Reverse our two countries, how would we feel about Pakistan bombing the US?


Further evidence on why drone attacks must be discontinued:

It’s only a matter of time before someone does it to us writes Sam Rolley:

And uses the same rationale, it’s legal under international law.  (It is and always will be illegal under the Constitution, without a declaration of war declared by congress.)


It looks like the fight for the GOP continues between conservative tea party types and neo-con big government type establishment republicans.

The Sheetz Report: Business & Politics, Issue 339

Untitled-1

So, I’ve been trying to find out how much our government raised the debt limit to and I was disturbed to find out…
Until 2/7/2014 we have no limit to our nation’s debt:
http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/congress/item/16768-there-is-no-debt-ceiling-in-place-under-the-new-law

http://dailycaller.com/2013/10/17/theres-no-actual-debt-ceiling-right-now/
http://cowboybyte.com/25342/theres-actual-debt-ceiling-right-now/
The definition of insanity, allowing our representatives to spend whatever they want.  I DO NOT CONSENT!
Anyone that voted for this needs to be voted out next election, this is willful misconduct of financial responsibility.  My kids can’t afford this debt!


Government had to make up for lost time:
http://personalliberty.com/2013/10/18/government-reopens-spends-328-billion-in-a-single-day/
We increased on national debt $328 billion in one day, our national debt has increased $10.6 trillion since Obama took office in 2009.
I blame both sides for spending money we don’t have, this will only make the recovery to sound money more painful.


“What difference does it make”…where have I heard that before (3:12):
http://minutemennews.com/2013/10/pelosi-demonstrates-irresponsible-lawmaking-difference-make-budget-deal/
What difference does it make?  We’ll be in the same position in 3 months and congress will do the same thing again…spend more money that our children and grand-children will have to repay.
It’s called fiscal responsibility Nancy, Washington needs to realize and act on that concept.

The R’s and D’s are very afraid their oligarchy will end soon if voters have a real choice.  Ohio voters need to demand their representatives kill this bill and other states heed this warning.

As Ben Bullard reports, it’s a clear violation of both the 5th and 6th amendments.  I expect the SCOTUS to force government to make major changes to the law ending the practice.

Here’s the raw data:

Maybe Dan should stop watching the MSM and actually engage a few people who identify themselves as tea party; most who defend the Constitution have an above average level of understanding of science and government.

I find it humorous that the code used was stolen from another company and violated the terms of use (EULA) agreement.  Only our government could screw something up this badly.


It’s very telling when the Treasury Secretary defines what our government is doing as a Ponzi scheme, by Philip Hodges:

I feel sorry for rep Jason Chaffetz (one of the good guys and acting pro tempore) having to explain what his party did regarding the rule change.

Subject: Hands off the Internet!
As a constituent, I insist that you oppose any attempts to undermine Internet freedom.
The NSA collects contact lists from email and messaging accounts. (wapo.st/1gFM2f9).
These lists are being taken from millions of Americans without a warrant.
The NSA claims to use “checks and balances” to protect Americans’ privacy. But no such claim can make it ok to violate the 4th Amendment.
Even worse, Congress never authorized this program!
A hacker who collects contact lists is a CRIMINAL. How are NSA employees different?
I DENY CONSENT.
Put a stop to ALL unconstitutional surveillance. Or do you take the side of criminals?

Subject: Another example…
I deny my consent to “government” criminality.
Ladar Levison owned Lavabit, a secure, encrypted, email service. He would turn over individual customer records, including Edward Snowden’s, under lawful court orders.
As the New York Times reports, the FBI wanted FAR more: “the passwords, encryption keys and computer code that would essentially allow the government untrammeled access to the protected messages of all his customers.” (http://nyti.ms/1bse9hZ) Levison resisted and ultimately closed his business rather than harm his customers. He…
* had to layoff an employee
* lost ten years of work
* lost his income
He was then threatened with arrest SIX times! (http://bit.ly/18BZY5q) He was also prohibited from publicizing details of the case for almost two months, in violation of the First Amendment.
By making honesty and integrity dangerous you ensure there will be less of both. Corruption will expand.
A REAL government understands that honesty and integrity are GOOD for society. YOU punish these things. The FBI has behaved in a criminal way. I deny consent. You must protect rather than persecute people like Ladar Levison. Otherwise, your governing has no moral claim to legitimacy.

I will withhold final judgment until all facts are known but from what I have read and seen it appears the bikers were grossly out of line.

Here’s a copy of your letter to Congress. Please share it with friends. Ask them to send a letter too. Grow the Downsize DC Army!
[divide]
Subject: I am not afraid
I am not afraid of terrorism. I want you to stop being afraid on my behalf. End your politically profitable war on terror.
I do not consent to the culture of fear created by Congress since 9/11. Before then, there were terrorist attacks from time to time, but Congress didn’t radically strip Americans of their Fourth Amendment rights.
The chance of being victimized by terrorism was tiny then, and it’s tiny now. The difference is we were freer.
I demand that freedom once again. One way to make that happen is to strip Section 1061 of the 2014 NDAA (HR 1960). This provision…
* Creates yet another agency, the Conflict Records Research Center…
* This new bureau will collate data that was illegally collected by other spy agencies…
* on individuals now or once “hostile” to the U.S.
Yet the bill…
* doesn’t define what “hostile” means
* or provide privacy protections.
Sec 1061 EXPANDS the Surveillance State when you SHOULD be ending it. It’s IMMORAL for you to collect my data without my consent. It’s also UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
Your legitimacy as a governing institution requires you to do the right thing. So I demand you obey your oath of office. Strip Sec. 1061 from the NDAA.
And then, repeal the Patriot Act, FISA Amendments Act, and all other features of the Surveillance State.

Subject: Co-sponsor the “Surveillance State Repeal Act.”
Co-sponsor the “Surveillance State Repeal Act (HR 2818).”
HR 2818 will do more than repeal the unconstitutional Patriot and FISA Amendments Acts.
It will also help the economy!
That’s because the NSA’s lawlessness is hurting American tech companies large and small. Other countries are now competing to make personal data private. As the Wall Street Journal reports (http://shar.es/KIppB)…
* Studies estimate the NSA will cost Silicon Valley $35 billion in lost overseas business
* A Cloud Security Alliance survey finds 56% of non-U.S. members are less likely to use U.S.-based cloud services, and 10% had canceled a contract Former Obama official Chris Finan agrees. In a Washington Post interview, he says (http://shar.es/KI2AY)…
* The NSA isn’t needed to keep us “safe”
* The federal government should share security threats with tech companies, rather than collect our data
* The private sector is the font of innovation and should be a leader in security I don’t know how much data the NSA has on me personally. I just know they assert the power to search ANYONE without a warrant, and that’s bad enough. They’re scaring off potential clients of U.S. businesses. These activities make me POORER because they hurt the overall economy.
Your oath of office demands you repeal the Surveillance State. But you should also know that your continued toleration of it will mean jobs lost and a stagnant economy.
Do the right thing. Support HR 2808.

“Bombing Syria would not necessarily be an act of war – per se”.

http://www.gopusa.com/news/2013/08/30/white-house-claims-obama-has-right-to-order-strike-on-syria/?subscriber=1
Note: our congress has the duty to impeach any president that orders an attack on another nation without authorization from congress.  It’s part of the oath of office called the Constitution.


Even though evidence continues to pour in that the gas attack was executed by the Al-Nusra/FSA front:

Syrian activists have formed human shields around potential US military targets in this sovereign nation:

Here’s a copy of your letter to Congress. Please share it with friends. Ask them to send a letter too. Grow the Downsize DC Army!
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
Subject: Defend America only. Do not manipulate or police the world.
Defend America only. Do not manipulate or police the world.

Do NOT grant the President authority to attack Syria.
I distrust politicians who argue for war. The track-record is terrible. Learn from history so you can avoid repeating it…
Politicians tricked Americans into fighting the Spanish-American War, shouting “Cuba-Libre” and “Remember the Maine.” But Cuba never really gained “libre,” and the explosion of the Battleship Maine was an accident. Worse…
A war sold to fight imperialism ended with the U.S. having colonies of its own, in Guam, Puerto Rico, and, after a long murderous war, in the Philippines.
In 1914 President Wilson told Americans to be neutral about World War I, even in their thoughts. But Wilson wasn’t neutral. He cooperated with the British blockade of Germany, forcing Germany to rely on submarine warfare. Wilson then used this an excuse for intervention, after winning re-election under the slogan, “He kept us out of the war.”
World War I had been a stalemate. It might have ended sooner without U.S. involvement. But U.S. entry gave the Allies new hope, so the war continued. This allowed time for the Bolshevik revolution in Russia, leading to the later Cold War. Even worse….
The terrible peace treaty Wilson helped negotiate paved the way for Hitler and World War II.
FDR later borrowed from Wilsons€™s playbook, doing everything he could to trick unwilling Americans into war with either Japan or Germany. He got both!
In the aftermath of World War II communism reigned over China and half of Europe. But the political class still had more disasters in store for us…
U.S. politicians gave half of Korea to the Soviets, setting the stage for the Korean War in 1950.
In 1953 the CIA overthrew a democratic government in Iran, installing a dictator. This created the Iranian enemy our politicians rail against today.
In 1964 the Gulf of Tonkin incident was staged, leading to increased U.S. involvement in Vietnam. Disaster followed.
In the 1980s U.S. politicians supported elements in Afghanistan that eventually became Al Qaeda, the group responsible for the attacks on 9-11.
Also in the 1980s the U.S. gave chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein, which he used against Iran and his own people.
In 1990 an American diplomat, April Glaspie, told Saddam Hussein that the U.S. had no interest in his border dispute with Kuwait. Hussein took this as a green light for war with Kuwait. The first Gulf War followed.
In 2003 President George W. Bush scared Americans into war once again, with stories of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. There were no such weapons.
Please notice the pattern. Nearly all U.S. wars have been founded on lies and incompetence. Nearly all U.S. wars have created new enemies to justify new wars. ENOUGH.
I deny consent for another war.

To my friends who choose to stay in the GOP to effect change from within; you now need to rethink your strategy again.

The US government was bribing muslim brotherhood officials via our Egyptian ambassador:
http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/evidence-u-s-bribed-muslim-brotherhood-officials/
It will be interesting to see if any of the money can be traced back to Valerie Jarrett or Obama’s half-brother, Malik.
Too bad the MSM won’t report on ANY of this.


The IRS scandal is not going to go away.  Lois Lerner and Malik Obama are directly related back to Barack Obama (6:51):

Another story on the above, from North Carolina:

FDA overreach may very well put the family and organic farmer out of business:
http://www.publicnewsservice.org/2013-08-26/sustainable-agriculture/local-farmers-worry-about-new-produce-rules/a34158-1#
Say goodbye to the farmers market unless you get involved with getting the new rules changes (or start your own garden and raise your own meat).
Does anyone find it ironic that a government AGENCY (not elected officials) have so much control over your life?


More overreach by a federal agency, this time the USDA:

This happens all to often.  Stop the madness.


So, what do you do when GMO corn doesn’t work?:
http://www.arcamax.com/business/businessnews/s-1381253
Corn rootworm has overcome crop rotation and GMO Bt treated seed to once again become a crop devastator.
This isn’t good for Monsanto or farmers…and is not good news for anti-GMO’ers either (because whatever Monsanto comes up with next is most probably going to be more harmful to humans that what we have now).
Doubly bad because Monsanto thought they could get about 20 years out of this GMO before the rootworm developed significant resistance to it….it’s only been 10 years since this GMO strain was released to farmers.

Heck, even in 2008 Obama and Biden both said the president must go to congress to do what Obama is getting ready to do:

I get my local news from Chicago, this story has gotten very little attention locally:

I am afraid we are close to making more mistakes in Syria:
http://rt.com/news/syria-russia-us-iraq-976/
Alex Newman reports that US led rebels were sent into Syria before the latest chemical attack:
http://thenewamerican.com/world-news/asia/item/16402-reports-us-led-rebels-sent-into-syria-before-chemical-attack
Alex Newman files this followup report as well:

Additional reports from the independent media:

Ben Swann with an update on the chemical attack in Syria:
http://benswann.com/what-the-media-isnt-telling-you-about-the-syrian-chemical-attack/
These reports provide evidence that the rebels do in fact have Sarin gas available (kinda makes the official government/MSM reports that it must be the Syrian government) false.
We cannot allow the MSM to not report on this; I don’t even understand the reasoning of this other than perpetual war.
It all ties together, I tried to inform you in my last issue.  I don’t know how this can be stopped without pressure from citizens, and that won’t happen if the MSM refuses to report on it.  I do not consent.
You know when Obama and the neo-con GOP agree on something we have real problems.


John Kerry is lying:
http://benswann.com/sec-of-state-john-kerry-wrong-about-syrian-weapons-claim/
Ben Swann has earned my trust, has he earned yours?   John Kerry has not earned my trust.  Who do you believe?


Robert Naiman explains if Obama attacks Syria without going to congress for authorization then we no longer have a Constitutional Republic:
http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/18410-president-obama-dont-strike-syria-without-congressional-approval
We have tyranny, the wishes of a king against the wishes of the people.  I want Obama (or any president) arrested the day we bomb another sovereign nation without an act of war declared by congress.


It’s become painfully obvious that the Al-Nusra/FSA rebels are doing everything in their power to draw us into fighting their war for them:
http://www.infowars.com/syrian-rebels-behind-sniper-attack-on-un-inspectors/
As I stated a week ago, don’t believe the lies.


Not a big fan of Alex Jones but he seems to be one of the few who will talk about Syria.

Ben Crystal provides us with the neo-con viewpoint on Syria:

And don’t forget the real reason to start war with Syria (1:41):

He gets it.


Obama does not have Constitutional authority to wage war:
http://personalliberty.com/2013/08/29/the-president-and-the-power-to-declare-war/
Michael Boldin is founder/director of the 10th amendment center and I trust his views on the Constitution regarding this matter.


It appears that 116 congressmen will impeach Obama if he wages war with Syria without approval:
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/08/28/116-House-Members-Agree-Obama-Needs-Congressional-Approval-for-Attack-on-Syria
Don’t know what the other 319 plan to do.


Joe Biden from 2007 (2:04):
http://www.conservativeactionalerts.com/2013/08/biden-i-will-make-it-my-business-to-impeach-him/
Now that he’s VP, can he start impeachment proceedings?


This doesn’t help the Obama/McCain cause.  Britain will not authorize any military strikes against Syria without UN approval:
http://www.newsmaxworld.com/GlobalTalk/syria-conflict-britain-debate/2013/08/29/id/522894?s=al&promo_code=14B1C-1

Here’s a copy of your letter to Congress. Please share it with friends. Ask them to send a letter too. Grow the Downsize DC Army!
[divide]
Subject: End Asset Forfeiture
Civil asset forfeiture programs violate several provisions of the Bill of Rights. Introduce legislation to abolish civil asset forfeiture.
Asset forfeiture allows police to seize and KEEP the property of innocent people, without bringing criminal charges.
The people the cops victimize in this fashion must instead prove their own innocence in order to get their property back.
This turns the legal process on its head, making it an aid to “government” criminality rather than a protection for the innocent.
This evil is then compounded by a system that takes too long and costs too much.
YOU, as a member of Congress, are responsible for all of this!
* You fund local police by the billions each year
* And your “equitable sharing” program allows local agencies to keep most of what they steal whenever they’re assisting the so-called Justice Department Civil asset forfeiture became law over 40 years ago as part of the failed and insane “War on Drugs.” But it doesn’t even deter the drug trade.
* Seizures from ACTUAL drug couriers are a small expense for the drug lords
* Police also have an incentive to ALLOW drug deals to be made so they can seize more money afterward That’s because the wealth they steal….
* helps fund their departments
* often pays for their bonuses
As a result, cops become carjackers. Here are some of those thefts, as reported by Sarah Stillman (http://shar.es/zt84Y):
* Police stole a woman’s car because she loaned it to her son, who was carrying a handgun
* Police stole $28,500 in church offerings
* Police stole FORTY cars in one night at an art gallery event. An outdated Detroit “speakeasy” law was the excuse Of course, the police also steal houses and other valuables. In Philadelphia, the police steal 100 houses each year.
If you do NOT think asset forfeiture is a crime, then you don’t know what “law” is. In addition, your continued support makes you guilty of aiding and abetting the commission of these crimes.
If you support asset forfeiture, then you should be fired from Congress. And, personally, I wouldn’t hire you for any other job. How can you trust someone who believes in stealing?
Stop doing criminal things. I deny consent to this wanton immorality. Take immediate action to end this outrage.

http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/kelly-stop-and-frisk-new-york-/2013/08/18/id/520982?s=al&promo_code=148FC-1

The judge has ruled that stop and frisk is a violation of the 4th and 14th amendments to the US Constitution.  Really?  It took a judge to determine that?

Bloomberg has already said he would appeal the decision, why does this not surprise me.

As part of the judge’s ruling, officers in certain areas of NYC were ordered to wear cameras on their uniforms.

Bloomberg has come out strongly against the mandate (interesting to note that NYC has more surveillance cameras than any other city in the US) (1:52 & 1:56):

http://libertycrier.com/mayor-bloomberg-who-strongly-supports-surveillance-tech-against-citizens-calls-video-cameras-for-nypd-a-nightmare/?utm_source=The+Liberty+Crier&utm_campaign=da841dd241-The_Liberty_Crier_Daily_News_8_17_2013&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_600843dec4-da841dd241-284766705&doing_wp_cron=1376860360.0306069850921630859375

I support on duty police having these cameras just like I support citizens doing the same.

I found a second video of this (a longer version) (8:48):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zc6eBigwcrA&feature=c4-overview&list=UUiqRq2mT_bBPMRhHap684Ig

So, without an announced warrant are you legally allowed to shoot someone that breaks into your home, even if they’re police?

Why would the police be SO hostile to the occupants (who appeared to try to remain very calm).

This story disturbed me so I did some more digging.  An investigation has been started by the DeKalb County sheriff’s department but it looks like Sheriff Thomas Brown has his officers back:

I hope this doesn’t happen to me because I would probably be killed in a gunfight.  I fear we do truly live in a police state when actions like this aren’t immediately challenged and corrected.

8 police officers should be looking for a new job.  I have a few LEO’s on this list, would any of you care to comment on if I’m out of line here?


Rand Paul interview slams Obama and Hillary on many fronts (6:50):

You might have caught wind of the Oprah story in the MSM regarding racism and a purse she was interested in buying while in Switzerland:

Only one problem, Oprah lied about the story to help promote her new movie.  This is disgraceful conduct by someone held in such high regard my many.

This made a segment on Hannity as well (5:17):

He has asked the CAIR and ACLU for help in getting the FBI to answer questions…good luck with that.  Looks like a good old fashioned mob execution to me, it’s just that the mob in this case was the FBI.

Bruce Schneier writes in Bloomberg on the public-private surveillance partnership:

http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2013/aug/08/lavabit-email-shut-down-edward-snowden

Edward Snowden used Lavabit for his own email and I’m sure that had a lot to do with the quick shutdown.  The last statement by Lavabit founder Ladar Levison is very telling:

“This experience has taught me one very important lesson: without congressional action or a strong judicial precedent, I would strongly recommend against anyone trusting their private data to a company with physical ties to the United States.”

Still think we live in the land of the free?

Obama has taken 14 vacation trips since coming to office in 01/2009, that’s not counting the joint business/vacation trips we’ve paid for.

The judge got this one wrong.  I guess if it can’t be overturned on appeal the photographed are faced with filing a civil suit for damages (although a shot to the head of “artist” Arne Svenson would probably work equally well).

Under the Constitution, there is an expectation of privacy on your own property.  Paparazzi will love this ruling.  Judge Eileen Rakower is not fit to be on the judicial bench.

Peter Schiff (economist) tries a new line of work: stand-up comic (11:25):

Thing is, Peter’s not much different than when he talks economics.  He was funny though, if you need a reality break you’ll enjoy this.


Just another day riding the school bus in Florida (1:50):

http://conservativebyte.com/2013/08/video-showing-teens-brutally-beating-13-y-o-boy-on-fla-school-bus/

http://townhall.com/columnists/toddstarnes/2013/08/08/they-about-to-beat-this-boy-to-death-n1659810/page/full

I noticed no other kids or the bus driver came to this students defense…we live in a sad nation without any moral compass.

Jackson, Sharpton, Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z, Obama…none of them have a comment on this story.  Why does the liberal media give this story a pass?  Race-baiters (2:48):

http://conservativebyte.com/2013/08/critics-blast-jackson-sharpton-over-silence-on-florida-school-bus-beating/

Did this not become a big story because the three 15 year olds that beat the shit out of the 13 year old white kid were black?


A great example of the MSNBC double standard concerning race (1:32):
http://conservativevideos.com/2013/08/msnbc-host-michael-smerconish-dismisses-beating-of-white-boy-who-snitched/

And with that, I rest my case.


Chris Skates reports on the Fancy Farm political rally.  For those who don’t know, this is the biggest annual political picnic in Kentucky:

http://patriotupdate.com/articles/fancy-farm/

I appreciated Chris’ insight into Kentucky politics, they are my neighbors after all.


Frank Camp points out the obvious:

http://lastresistance.com/2987/liberals-dominate-media-what-youre-not-aware-of/

But that doesn’t mean you can’t find the truth from other sources, that’s what the alternative media is for.


A scandal is brewing among the libertarian/republican/liberty groups within the GOP:

http://benswann.com/did-the-ron-paul-campaign-betray-liberty-voters-in-iowa-with-a-backroom-deal/

http://thebullelephant.com/fusaro-ron-paul/

It’s no secret that I am a huge Ron Paul supporter, looks like his inner-circle had some people that don’t represent Paul’s values equally as well.

When it’s all said and done, most will realize that Jesse Benton is a POS and a cancer to those around him.  (I wonder if Mitch McConnell will fire him now or give him a raise?)


Don’t like the fact that the Boston bombing was committed by radical muslims? (7:06):

http://www.infowars.com/tsarnaev-narrative-change-instead-of-a-radical-muslim-tamerlan-a-rightwing-extremist/

Just have the MSM change the narrative.  Don’t believe it (who owns Current TV)?


Here’s a new conspiracy theory for you, reports Tad Cronn:

http://godfatherpolitics.com/12041/valerie-jarrett-named-in-benghazi-and-liberals-go-nuts/

Valerie Jarrett ordered the stand down order during the Benghazi attack, Obama was asleep at the time because he had a big fund-raising day scheduled.

The right to take pictures in public space really shouldn’t result in this (4:40):

LAPD must have been very bored that day.


Retired border patrol agents caution citizens that Mexican drug cartels may very well be paying off US politicians:

http://cowboybyte.com/23653/border-agents-mexican-drug-cartels-operating-in-u-s-with-help-from-u-s-politicians/

http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/08/ex-border-patrol-agents-politicians-helping-mexican-cartels-in-us/

It would be wise to heed these warnings, that’s how Mexico became so corrupted.  Who’s to say it couldn’t happen here?


What gives Eric Holder the right?:
http://benswann.com/eric-holder-demands-government-supervision-of-apples-itunes-app-stores/

To regulate a publicly traded company?  iTunes is not a monopoly.  I’m not a huge Apple fan but I hope they win this one.


Speaking of Eric Holder; have I mentioned he should be in jail?  Instead, he has spent more than $4 million of our money for travel:

http://dailycaller.com/2013/08/05/taxpayers-spent-more-than-4-million-on-holders-travel-costs/

Just part of the “entitled” class.  I do not consent.


Indianapolis officer of the year (T. Michael Wilson) is not being very friendly here (1:43):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoAyPdOWTq0 (Preview)

Here’s the local TV news report from the incident (4:50):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWhVOtMWO4o (Preview)

I seriously recommend that Indianapolis police and the JW Marriott settle this case as quickly as possible; this was a MAJOR screw-up.

Officer Wilson should be fired immediately for filing a false incident report.


It’s sad when a good police officer (Jason Cory) is fired for trying to show abuse within his own city (Basehor, KS):

http://personalliberty.com/2013/08/09/ex-cop-sues-city-over-wrongful-termination/

Good short article by Lorne Dey.


Intellectual Froglegs with Joe Dan Gorman (21:39):

http://intellectualfroglegs.com/conservative-when-convenient-intellectual-froglegs-s2e7/

Conservative when convenient; Joe Dan takes a very religious tone in this edition.


Do you think Saudi Arabia is a moderate Islamic state?:
http://www.clarionproject.org/news/saudi-arabia-sentences-editor-7-years-prison-and-600-lashes

You would be wrong.


Pamela Geller reports that Saudi Arabia is condemning Al-Qaeda for distorting the image of Islam:

http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/08/saudi-distortions-al-qaeda-which-distorts-the-image-of-islam-must-be-vanquished/

I fail to see the differences…did you read the story above this one?


William Jasper op-ed on the NSA:

http://thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/item/16191-feds-caught-in-lies-say-will-come-clean-don-t-bet-on-it

We as US citizens are so screwed…

And then I read this article by Joe Wolverton:

http://thenewamerican.com/tech/computers/item/16188-federal-snoops-activate-smartphone-microphones-and-laptop-cameras

And then I read this article by Thomas Eddlem:

http://thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/16247-new-york-times-yes-nsa-is-searching-americans-email-content

Let me reiterate…we are so, so screwed.


Michael Hayden/Justin Amash interview on FOX News Sunday (13:42):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Xxe1wvpuoho

Did you read any of the three above articles?


What we know about the NSA surveillance programs:

http://personalliberty.com/2013/08/06/faq-what-you-need-to-know-about-the-nsas-surveillance-programs/

And we citizens are to believe what we are being told?


These articles would prove the above statements by the NSA to be a lie:

http://uk.reuters.com/article/2013/08/05/uk-dea-sod-idUKBRE9740HP20130805

http://minutemennews.com/2013/08/violating-americans-privacy-isnt-just-for-the-nsa-anymore/

http://patriotupdate.com/articles/sod-violating-americans-privacy-isnt-just-for-the-nsa-anymore/

Who should I believe; the NSA or Reuters?  If nothing else, you learned a new acronym…SOD.


Well, it’s official: according to former CIA/NSA director Michael Hayden I am a terrorist:

Judge Napolitano opinion piece in the Washington Times on Edward Snowden and the NSA:

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/aug/8/napolitano-double-talk-from-the-spymasters/

Once again, the judge nailed it.


So, I have a very basic question for you; does congress control the NSA or is it the other way around?:

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/aug/04/congress-nsa-denied-access

If the power of the purse resides in the house (Constitutionally it does), can ANY government agency refuse to give congress the information it requests?

I have a very simple solution, stop funding the NSA until they comply.  The NSA says they only do what they have been deemed authorized to do, this is an untrue statement.


Justin Amash calls Obama a liar (very diplomatically) (6:10):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=BUIQfCEskJs

Too bad he’s not old enough to be president yet.


John Lewis (D-GA) says Snowden was acting on the tradition of civil disobedience and answering to a higher power:

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/aug/07/john-lewis-civil-rights-edward-snowden?CMP=twt_fd

This NSA blowup has made some strange bedfellows.


Tom Eddlem explains on why you should care on what the NSA is doing to us (5:00):

http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/16245-tom-eddlem-on-the-nsa-video

But only if you wish our government would actually follow the Constitution…just a little bit.


Obama celebrates the end of Ramadan with another $195 million given to Syria for humanitarian aid:

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/316023-obama-marks-end-of-ramadan-with-more-syrian-aid#ixzz2bOM4Qll4

Brings to total to over $1 billion.  I do not consent.


Have the liberals won? (2:07):

http://conservativebyte.com/2013/08/store-owner-pulls-gun-on-thieves-may-lose-lease/

When you can no longer protect your own property the answer is yes.


Iranian president Hassan Rouhani discusses how he lied about their nuclear weapons program (4:34):
http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/video-irans-rouhani-brags-nuclear-progress-deception

All is fair in world politics and nuclear development, especially if you are an Islamic state with big ambitions.


Dave Jolly examines some of the challenges of being a Christian in present day Egypt:

http://politicaloutcast.com/2013/08/hundreds-of-christian-girls-kidnapped-and-forced-to-convert-to-islam-and-marry-muslim-men/


I see many parallels between Germany and the Jews of 1933 and Egypt and the Christians of 2013:

http://www.gopusa.com/news/2013/08/08/egypts-coup-puts-fearful-christians-in-a-corner/?subscriber=1

This will not end well for Egypt’s Coptic Christians if things don’t change very soon.


I need to find one of these in my area:

I often share my emails to my representatives with you through this newsletter, read the article below and decide if YOU will do the same:

 

 

The Consent Chronicle

This is the official email newsletter of the Zero Aggression Project and DownsizeDC.org, Inc. You are receiving this message (atpsheetz@csiweb.com) because you subscribed, signed one of our petitions, or wrote Congress using our Educate the Powerful System.

The following information comes from Reuters 

  • The NSA is spying on you and sharing this information with the DEA
  • The DEA is then sharing this information with local law enforcement

If you get arrested because of this, abandon all hope because 

  • Law enforcement is hiding where the evidence came from
  • This means you cannot effectively challenge the evidence in court

But it gets worse…

The DEA unit responsible for this program — the ominous sounding Special Operations Division — is a secret organization. It cannot be investigated by defense attorneys or called into court. Even the location of the Special Operations Division is classified.

Now remember what you were promised…

Your so-called “representatives” promised you that the NSA only spies on those associated with foreign terrorists. They’ve insisted that there is no domestic aspect to this spying.

You now know this to be untrue. It’s just one more lie. So let me ask you 

When will enough be enough ?

At what point does our so-called government cease to be legitimate? At what point do we declare it to be a criminal entity?

We think we should start making this declaration NOW. We will launch a new campaign for exactly this purpose starting tomorrow.

The hardwired message to Congress will read 

I no longer consider the federal “government” to have any legitimate authority. A long train of abuses and usurpations persuades my conscience that it has become a criminal enterprise. In the future I will submit to it out of fear rather than allegiance. Here’s part of why I feel this way 

Should you choose to make use of this campaign you will be able to list whatever reasons you like. It may be about this latest spying scandal, or a long list of other abuses and usurpations, including perhaps, but not limited to 

  • NSA spying
  • Fat-cat bailouts at taxpayer expense
  • Missing weapons of mass destruction in Iraq
  • Massive counterfeiting by the Federal Reserve
  • Acts of torture committed in your name
  • Indefinite detention under NDAA provisions
  • Illegal wars
  • IRS targeting of political opponents
  • Drone attacks on foreign civilians
  • The largest, national incarceration rate on the planet
  • Assassinating Americans
  • Obamacare imposed against the will of the people
  • Illegal gun-running in Operation Fast & Furious

The list could go on and on, almost without end. The real question is this…..

  • When have you had enough?
  • When have your friends had enough?

These are very important questions, not to be taken lightly. So, please think about this today and tonight. Please also consider sharing this message with those close to you. Try to start a discussion: How much criminality are we prepared to endorse from our so-called government? How long will we sit silent while the criminality expands? How long before we withdraw our allegiance?

Other people are having similar thoughts. While you may disagree with some elements of these articles (we do), you may still find it valuable to read 

  • Claire Wolfe, who writes, “…millions… have been edging for years toward the realization that something’s terribly, terribly wrong.”
  • Paul Craig Roberts, who declares that, “Americans are oppressed by an illegitimate government ruling, not by law and the Constitution, but by lies and naked force.”

Until tomorrow
