AND THE STORY JUST KEEPS BUILDING…

March 23, 2013

Once again I say, taken individually there is little to concern anyone.  However, when you see the compounded picture, or as much as they allow you to see, it is quite different.  You can bury your head in the sand but that still won’t help in the long run.  You can call those of us who do get it crazy, conspirasists, nay-sayers, even racist if you have no better come back.  You can call us anything you like.  In the long run, ultimately, you will raise your head, shake off the sand, and say, “Hey, where was I when this was happening”?

To start, all the blather about gun control has little to do with guns.

“We’ve got to have a Civilian National Security Force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded as our military”.  Barack Obama July 2, 2008

1. The PATRIOT Act of 2001 – PATRIOT stands for Providing Appropriate Tools Required (to) Intercept (and) Obstruct Terrorism.  The measure goes well beyond the explanation originally given to us.  It is over-reaching and liberty trashing and freedom usurping.  It is not, and never was, about protecting us.  It was and is a method of controlling us.

Originally sold to the public “to protect the citizens of the United States” against terrorists, foreign and domestic, it quickly became a nightmare by a deceitful government.  The Patriot Act authorizes armed government officials to seize you and your property when they deem you may conduct “suspicious activity”.  It authorizes indefinite detention without the rights offered by the Miranda ruling of 1966 or the 5th Amendment if they suspect you of terrorist activity, anarchy, or virtually any action the government deems contrary to its own views or goals.

Written in purposefully loose language, the PATRIOT Act allows for bold interpolation at the will of authorized government officials.  With its inception in 2001, the Patriot Act reduced the freedoms of every American and tourist visiting the country.  The original bill scheduled many of the provisions to end on Dec. 31, 2006.  Extended and expanded, the bill remains with us today.  With every extension, there are measures added to further restrict our rights and freedoms in the name of national security.  The Trade Center tragedy offered the elite of government an opportunity to trash the Constitution, and they are accomplishing just that.  1984 came to us almost twenty years later than projected, but we now live in Oceana.

Warrants are not always necessary and often not obtained or even requested when they are necessary.  The Patriot Act authorizes DHS or any of their offspring alphabet counterpart agencies to act in the manner they find appropriate for a given situation.  The act effectively negates the 4th, 5th, and 8th Amendments to the Constitution of the United States of America, specifically enumerated by the founders to protect us from a tyrannical government.

2. Many of us first heard about H.B. 645, with its introduction by Alcee Hastings January 22, 2009 (two (2) days after President Obama’s inauguration).  The bill directs the Department of Homeland Security to establish emergency shelters on not less than 6 closed military bases.  The proposed “emergency shelters” are for victims of natural disasters and other large scope federal emergencies.  Pay particular attention to (b) (4).

H.R. 645

SEC. 2. ESTABLISHMENT OF NATIONAL EMERGENCY CENTERS.

(a) In General- In accordance with the requirements of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall establish not fewer than 6 national emergency centers on military installations.

(b) Purpose of National Emergency Centers- The purpose of a national emergency center shall be to use existing infrastructure–

(1) to provide temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster;

(2) to provide centralized locations for the purposes of training and ensuring the coordination of Federal, State, and local first responders;

(3) to provide centralized locations to improve the coordination of preparedness, response, and recovery efforts of government, private, and not-for-profit entities and faith-based organizations; and

(4) to meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security.

Okay, now we have DHS in charge of dissident detention emergency centers capable of guarding, housing, and feeding thousands of people.  The centers have guard towers, 10’-12’ high fencing topped by concertina wire to protect citizens displaced from their homes by a natural disaster.  Yeah, right!

3. NSA data collection center outside of Bluffdale, Utah.  This facility, with over a million square feet of computers and data storage is so secret that even congress cannot get the full story.  It makes Area 51 look like a local real estate open house.  All employees and contractors, including construction workers and custodial personnel, must pass top secret clearances before entering the compound.

The center processes and files over a billion missives per day.  The range of collection includes phone conversations, text messages, blog postings, police reports, traffic tickets, video, digital photographs, travel itineraries, place of work, scheduled and unscheduled time off, driver licenses, hunting and fishing licenses, doctor visits and medications.  Those little discount or rewards points cards issued by Staples, Pep Boys, Ralphs, etc. all collect data regarding time of day, your location, items purchased, amount paid, and payment method.  Bluffdale knows all.

Cell Phones, On Star – Voluntarily, we allow our every movement to be available to unknown sources.  Carrying a cell phone with you everywhere you go allows tracking via GPS, whether the phone is in use or not, as long as the installed battery functions.  Virtually all cars sold in the U.S. and made after 2000 have “black box” technology similar to those in airplanes that transmit location and many conditions of the automotive functioning.  For example, some drivers hear warnings about excessive speed from their dashboard, unaware of the installed device.  At least one rental company tried to charge a customer extra for exceeding the speed limit while using one of their vehicles.

If you exist, there is a way of retrieving your life history at Bluffdale.  Virtually all collectable information about every person within and outside the country is, or soon will be, stored and readily accessible at this facility.

Unfortunately, operation Stellar Wind, as the facility is code named, will not verify citizenship, immigration status, or voter eligibility.

Anything can trigger a further look into your activities.  Mention bomb, gun, killing, explosion, or anything pertaining to violence, and you might become a target of investigation.

4. Over the past couple of years DHS has purchased, or contracted for purchase, over 1.6 billion rounds of JHP ammunition.  Jacketed Hollow Point ammunition has one purpose and only one purpose.  Designed to cause maximum soft tissue and bone damage, its primary purpose is not for paper punching.  It is more expensive than lead or jacketed rounds and thus infrequently used for practice.  Additionally, DHS purchased 7,000 M-16 rifles, (the full automatic versions of the semi-auto AR-15 that is so much in the news now) for domestic use.  DHS describes the military weapons they purchase “for personal use”.

The agency distributes the weapons and ammunition throughout their child bureaucracies including the INS, CNSF, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, FEMA, ICE, TSA, ATF, as well as tangent agencies like IRS, NSA and the Department of Fish and Wildlife.

DHS also recently spent $50,000,000 of your money for uniforms made in whole or in part in Mexico.  Could these be for the Civilian National Security Force promised by the President?  We may not know until the men and women wearing them, armed with M-16s and 30 round magazines loaded with JHP ammunition show up at the front door in the middle of the night offering to transport us to the secure confines of the FEMA emergency shelters.

There has recently been a lot of talk about as many as 2,700 MRAP (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected) trucks purchased by DHS for delivery to various domestic locations for use by local law enforcement agencies.  *While the previous statement is unsubstantiated, there is evidence of its possible truth.  Stopping invading undocumented workers is not the intent for these armored vehicles.  Instead, they and the accompanying teams of highly trained individuals are quite capable of holding entire towns at bay.

One very interesting site, http://marketdailynews.com/2013/03/25/massive-amounts-of-dhs-armored-trucks-on-the-move/ offers a number of videos showing hundreds of military style vehicles on transport trains.  One video in particular gives the viewer a walk around of the vehicle along with brief descriptions of the teams’ and truck’s capabilities.

There are numerous other sites to access for more information on this subject.  You’ll likely not find ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NBC, NPR, PBS, broadcasting this information, and you probably won’t find it in most printed news sources.  Or, you can always keep your head in the sand, remain ignorant, and call me crazy.

While over-arming themselves, they will find any excuse to take away your guns and ammunition.  If demented child killers don’t work then guns are no longer necessary to put food on the table.  If those don’t work, they’ll find another excuse.  Those making the laws and other elite, however, will always have bodyguards at their side armed with a Glock 19 and 15 rounds of ammunition.  You just won’t have the opportunity to protect yourself against them.

5. As part of the now quasi-legal, rights and freedom usurping Patriot Act expansions, drones now hover above many cities and rural communities.  While you may not see them (stealth is their mode), they may be protecting you from your neighbor right now.  Or, they may be recording the items on your desk.  The NSA site in Bluffdale secures the information gathered, be it pertinent to national security or personal privacy.

Secondarily, cameras abound in our lives.  Government and private security cameras watch our every move.  They are found in almost every retail venue and many street corners.  The information is available to merchants, police, and ultimately the top secret squint in Utah.

A third personal privacy invasion attributed to the Patriot Act that has recently come about is the use of microphones in public places.  While it would normally require a court issued warrant to record personal or private conversations, the use of microphones in public areas is forgiven and any conversations may be used against you in a court of law.  Should you not make it to a court of law, it will keep you in the FEMA emergency shelter until further notice.  Government spy agencies claim there is no right to privacy when you are in public.  Public places include busses, taxis, buildings, streets, even the courtyard of your apartment complex.

That’s all for today, folks.  Heads back in the sand.

OKAY LIBERALS, YOU WIN

March 18, 2013

Okay liberals, you win.  You’ve managed to assuage your unfounded and unwarranted guilt by electing and re-electing a black man as president.  Once again, you’ve acted out of emotion and not intelligence.  You have made reparation for white Americans who once enslaved blacks in America.  And you have destroyed my country in doing so.

Your children may or may not grow up in one of the poverty stricken domains that you created by electing this man.  I hope not.  His certainly won’t.  His offspring will get the education you can only wish yours might get.  That is, unless you can afford $35,000+ per year to send them to private schools.  If so, I’m happy for you and proud of your accomplishments.  I will not vote to take your money and give it away to our foreign adversaries.  I wish you no ill.

You voted for his oratory, not his accomplishments.  He had none.  You listened to his voice and timbre but you failed to hear his words.  When he said he was going to “fundamentally change America”, you probably thought he meant Washington, D.C.  You were wrong.  From a man who idolizes Alinsky, who modeled his life after Marx, Stalin, and Mao, what could you expect?  The President garners more respect from Castro and the recently deceased Chavez than the leaders of free nations.  Other dictators cannot even respect his lack of command.  Even Karzi laughs at the man as he pockets the money he does not share with the rest of the Taliban.

Arming the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood with planes, tanks, and personal weapons to level the playing field against Israel, and U.S. troops should we choose to help them, was a bright move for sure.

You elected a community organizer, not a leader.  This man has spent his entire adulthood living off the government in one form or another.  From Pell grants to presidency, you have backed one of the most anti-Americans possible.  You put into office a man who has no respect for our country, its flag, or its people.

At a time when fiscal responsibility is imperative, all he can do is spend your earnings, your children’s and grandchildren’s potential income.  He lives a more lavish lifestyle than he ever would on his own earnings.  From day one of his residency, he has held weekly parties and concerts in our White House paying for the most costly cuisine and entertainment out of the pockets of the less able.  When most of us call for a pizza delivery, we call a local vendor.  When President Obama wants a pizza, he calls Chicago and has a pizza chef flown in for the evening at taxpayer expense.  His Chicago barber arrives in D.C. every other week to coiffe his curls.

The PPACA (aka Obamacare) is doomed to cripple the healthiest among us.  It is already causing doctors to leave the field of medicine and medical students to rethink their vocations.  Costs are already rising and expected to continue until and beyond full implementation.  Care levels and services will diminish while waiting times extend.

He hasn’t taken credit for anything since becoming President, and probably his entire life, other than the killing of Bin Laden.  And he had nothing physical to do with that.  In fact, it took him 16 hours to accede to the request from commanders to take out the terrorist.  He has blamed Bush, kiosks, Republicans, the Arab Spring, the FBI, the Secret Service, Mitt Romney, and virtually everyone and everything for his failures.

Benghazi…The man had to prepare for a flight to Las Vegas for a campaign stop after hearing about the attack on our consulate.  So he went to sleep while Americans were being tortured and slaughtered.  He couldn’t even order an air strike on the perpetrators.  It just wasn’t as important as being re-elected.

For weeks he and his minions proclaimed the attack was instigated by a video offending Islam and its followers.  He could not admit the truth because it would contradict his earlier lie that Al Queda was on the run after the killing of Bin Laden.  The leadership of Al Queda was not decimated!

He is driving the country into bankruptcy as part of his fundamental change.  When we needed reform in Washington, D.C., when we most needed a less intrusive and smaller government, he has expanded the size and scope of both.  He has restricted the opportunity to rebound from recession.

In the words of his close friend, confidante, and advisor, Rahm Emanuel, “A crisis is a terrible thing to waste“.  An uprising would allow President Obama to declare martial law, round up all dissenters to place them in FEMA camps, and retain the presidency until the crisis is over.  Then, you may have the opportunity to vote for him again.  Even before his first inauguration, Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY) reintroduced, as he has done every other year since 1997, a bill to repeal the 22nd Amendment that limits the presidency to two terms.

Good job liberals!  You have been instrumental in changing America from freedom and prosperity into an over-regulated, state run semi-democracy.  A person, plant, animal, or country can only take so much beat down before total submission and/or death.  We’re close now.  Soon, we will be fundamentally changed.

TAKE A PILL, BE WELL

March 12, 2013

There’s a new wave of illnesses on the horizon according to the CDC.  These antibiotic resistant diseases could take us back to the days of consumption, whooping cough, measles, mumps, and polio.  Why, you may ask?  The simple answer is because of unrestrained use of synthetic pharmaceuticals and other lab produced chemical combinations.

As a society, we have become dependent on drug manufacturers and prescription writers (aka doctors) to make us feel better while we endure illness.  Some of those illnesses attacking the brain as well as trunk organs and skin (MRSA) are treated chemically and some of the mitigating lab-combined  chemicals produce other maladies.  Though the side effects can be more detrimental than the original ailment, there is generally another pill, ointment, vaccine, or elixir to counter the negative reactions.

The antibiotics fed to farm animals and the toxins sprayed on our fruits and vegetables or their genetically altered seeds ultimately affect our well being as we consume them.  Even organically raised animals and vegetation is impacted by the chemicals introduced into the atmosphere daily by Dow and Monsanto.

Many of the very medications offered for our health are manufactured in the less than sterile environs of developing countries to overcome cost concerns.  Molds, fungi, E coli, Klebsiella, and salmonella are not uncommon in the clean rooms and other areas of the labs.  Some are made under the same conditions in the United States.  All are supposedly under the watchful eye of the FDA.  Money, however, tends to blur the vision of the agency.  In spite of their desire to control the world of pharmaceutically managed health, the FDA often overlooks the very harmful effects and side effects of new medications.

The FDA, itself, does no testing of its own.  They accept the biased studies of the drug companies until reactions from users indicate otherwise.  In other words, we the public are the true testers.  The FDA website http://www.fda.gov/drugs/developmentapprovalprocess/howdrugsaredevelopedandapproved/default.htm   offers the following:

“The mission of FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) is to ensure that drugs marketed in this country are safe and effective.  CDER does not test drugs, although the Center’s Office of Testing and Research does conduct limited research in the areas of drug quality, safety, and effectiveness.”

“Some companies submit a new drug application (NDA) to introduce a new drug product into the U.S. Market.  It is the responsibility of the company seeking to market a drug to test it and submit evidence that it is safe and effective.  A team of CDER physicians, statisticians, chemists, pharmacologists, and other scientists reviews the sponsor’s NDA containing the data and proposed labeling.”

The new ‘superbugs’ will proliferate around the globe.  Population control may no longer be a concern for our world leaders.  Some may even welcome the help.

Now, about that itching…

IT’S A FUNDING PROBLEM

March 9, 2013

It’s not a teaching problem; it’s a lack of funding.

According to a report from New York’s CBS-2 news, eighty percent of students graduating from New York City high schools remedial reading program, can’t read.

At a taxpayer expense of $18,800 per student per year, (47% above the national average) the kids of New York are doomed to a life of flipping burgers.  The good news is that progressives want to raise the minimum wage so that poverty is more acceptable than the food prepared by the undereducated populace.

There’s more good news, too.  For those who want to break out of the life to which they have been sentenced by the lower public school echelon, the City University of New York (CUNY) offers a low-cost English immersion program for those who can’t read their recently awarded high school diploma.  Recognizing the problem, the CUNY class is guaranteed to bring reading skills to a level where the high school graduates can read and understand the “HOT” warning on a coffee maker.  Then they will be prepared to move on and become PPACA doctors.

It’s almost like a Ronco commercial…”And, if you act now, we’ll throw in a complete education for only a small fee.  You just pick up the voucher from your local Welfare office”.

I have to question the system.  How is CUNY able to take kids with twelve years of public school education who cannot read ‘Fun With Dick and Jane’ and turn them into Tolstoy scholars in nine weeks?  If CUNY can actually bring up the reading skills in a short period, why isn’t the same method used in 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade?

A possible answer to my own question might be:  The tenured union teachers take time from instilling knowledge of math, English, reading and history to teach the students how to put condoms on cucumbers and how stealing from the wealthy is commendable.  Nah, that’s too simple.

Double the funding for public schools, it’s the only way for kids to learn.  It hasn’t worked in the past, but certainly it will now.

CLOSE THE WHITE HOUSE, OPEN THE PRISONS

March 7, 2013

It just gets more and more Bizarro with this administration.  Due to the all scary sequester misgivings of which the President denies being a part but others say he instigated, White House tours for American citizens, school children and foreign tourists will cease indefinitely.

We will, however continue to give billions of dollars worth of hand held weapons, planes and tanks along with pallets of cash to (our sworn enemies) the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

The Department of Homeland Security (or insecurity based on their recent actions) ordered the release of thousands of non-violent illegal aliens scheduled for deportation.  The prisoners will be afforded the opportunity to walk through the open gates of federal detention centers across the south and throughout the country.  They will re-integrate into the society from which they were originally deemed unfit.  According to anonymous ICE agents (anonymous because they want to keep their jobs), “non-violent” includes assault, child molestation, auto theft, armed and unarmed robbery, gang members, drug dealers and known members of major cartels, and basically any one in the country illegally who hasn’t severely maimed or murdered while incarcerated.

•  There is still funding for domestic drones to spy on American citizens, the NSA data collection center in Bluffdale, Utah, FEMA “refugee camps”, and hundreds of millions of rounds of JHP ammunition for DHS and the IRS.

•  There is adequate subsistence funding to keep people from seeking gainful employment.

•  There will be ongoing funding to teach children about Heather’s two mommies, but there may be less money for math and English classes.

•  “Stimulus” money from the few who still work and pay taxes, of course, remains available to reimburse corporations whose executives provided support for the presidential campaign of our current White House figurehead.  More money has been requested from congress.

This is really no longer Bizarro World, USA; it is the new norm.  Get used to it.

A legacy continues just a continent away.  Anti- American Hugo may be gone, but Barack carries on.
