It Is Now Official: The US Is a Police State

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts on 14 February, 2010 23:15:00

“This is the unmistakable hallmark of a police state. And this victim is an American citizen.

Anyone can be next. Indeed, on Feb. 3 Dennis Blair, director of national intelligence told the House Intelligence Committee that it was now “defined policy” that the U.S. government can murder its own citizens on the sole basis of someone in the government’s judgment that an American is a threat. No arrest, no trial, no conviction, just execution on suspicion of being a threat.

This shows how far the police state has advanced. A presidential appointee in the Obama administration tells an important committee of Congress that the executive branch has decided that it can murder American citizens abroad if it thinks they are a threat.”  LINK TO FULL ARTICLE

Director of National Intelligence Tells Congress Americans Can Be Killed Overseas

by Jason Ditz, February 03, 2010

Blair said the comments were intended to “reassure” Americans that there was a “set of defined policy and legal procedures” in place and that such assassinations are always carried out by the book.

Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R – MI) inquired about the procedures involved, asking what the legal framework was under which Americans could be killed by the intelligence community.

Blair insisted that under no circumstances would Americans be assassinated overseas for criticizing the government, adding “we don’t target people for free speech.” Rather they are subject to assassination when the government decides they are a threat and when they “get specific permission.” Exactly who was giving that permission was unclear.

The question has been increasingly important as the Obama Administration attempts to help the Yemeni government assassinate Anwar al-Awlaki, a US-born cleric who is not accused of any crimes by the US government. The administration maintains that secret evidence exists linking Awlaki to terrorism.

There seems to be a chilling lack of oversight in the procedure behind these killings, however, Blair’s assurances against politically motivated assassinations aside. The US has killed Americans in overseas attacks before, but only as “collateral damage.” It has never admitted to explicitly assassinating an American citizen before, though it seems that the policy is in place and such killings are only a matter of time.

Michigan:“Firearms Freedom Act” (HB-5232)

National Expositor

Tenth Amendment Center – Introduced in the Michigan House on August 11, 2009, the “Firearms Freedom Act” (HB-5232) seeks “to make certain findings regarding intrastate commerce; to prohibit federal regulation of firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition involved purely in intrastate commerce in [the State of Michigan]; to provide for certain exceptions to federal regulation; and to establish certain manufacturing requirements.”

The bill was authored by Rep. Phillip Pavlov and currently has 44 co-sponsors.

While the HB5232’s title focuses on federal gun regulations, it has far more to do with the 10th Amendment’s limit on the power of the federal government.  It specifically states:

The regulation of intrastate commerce is vested in the states under amendments IX and X of the constitution of the United States, particularly if not expressly preempted by federal law. Congress has not expressly preempted state regulation of intrastate commerce pertaining to the manufacture on an intrastate basis of firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition. More

Are we consulting Bernie Madoff for retirement advice?

When it comes to political strategy, does anyone take Tom DeLay seriously anymore?

Would you rely on Jeffrey Dahmer for relationship counseling?

Then, why the hell are we providing a forum for former Vice President Dick Cheney every time he wants to run off at the mouth about terrorism?

When people become totally discredited, why would we persist in giving them access?

It is time we seriously consider boycotting those in the media that continue to broadcast his crap on nearly every newscast.

The Minnesota House introduced legislation, House File 997 and 998, on February 19th, 2009 to re-assert our State Sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. This legislation got ignored and died in committee. We will be making another attempt to get this legislation signed into law during the 2010 legislative session. We are asking for your support to call, email or contact your State Representatives in person and insist they support this legislation!

The Constitution applies to the federal government.  Its sole purpose was to spell out what the government can do. The key principle of the Constitution is quite simple: positive grant.

Unfortunately, this is not a phrase that many of us hear in daily banter these days. But, it’s not a complicated principle at all. What it means is this – the US federal government is authorized to exercise only those powers which are specifically given to it in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution. Nothing more, and nothing less.

The following is the list of current Minnesota State Representatives. Those indicated as HOUSE AUTHOR have chosen to HONOR their oath of office taken in January 2009 to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and allow “We the People” to regain our sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment. The remaining State Representatives have chosen not to honor their oath of office to support and defend the Constitution!

This substantive information is given to help people make choices at the voting booths for Public Servants that will support and defend the Constitution, including the Tenth Amendment!

WICFA: The promotion and preservation of unregulated direct farmer-to-consumer trade

Leave a comment

Hello WICFA Friends and Members:
 
We have some updates on our website that might be of interest to you.  Please browse through our Raw Milk page and our Honey page to see what is new.
 
Read the Iowa raw milk bill and see why it is the kind of legislation that we need to put before our Assembly and Senate.  It is fair to all producers and consumers and is completely aligned with WICFA’s mission statement of the promotion and preservation of unregulated direct farmer-to-consumer trade that fosters the availability of locally grown and home-produced food products.
 
The updates on Wisconsin honey legislation include some correspondence between Senator Russ Decker and our VP, Paul M. Griepentrog as well as a link to some good information on the origins of Codex. 
 
Enjoy and I hope you find the updates useful!
 
Thanks,
 
Clifford J. Cordell II

Wyoming Bill Seeks to Combat Federal Distortions of Commerce Clause, 2nd Amendment – Includes Penalties of up to Two Years in Prison for Federal Agents Violating the Law.

Leave a comment

Michael Boldin [send him email] is the founder of the Tenth Amendment Center

“When a state ‘nullifies’ a federal law, it is proclaiming that the law in question is void and inoperative, or ‘non-effective,’ within the boundaries of that state; or, in other words, not a law as far as the state is concerned.”

____________________________________________

10th Amendment Center – Wyoming State Representative Allen Jaggi has introduced a “Firearms Freedom Act” (FFA) for the state – it’s filed as House Bill 95 (HB95).

While the FFA’s title focuses on gun regulations, it has far more to do with the federal violations of the commerce clause, which D.C. has used as an excuse to prohibit and regulate everything from wheat, to marijuana to guns.

If passed, the bill would provide “that specified firearms that are manufactured, sold, purchased, possessed and used exclusively within Wyoming shall be exempt from federal regulation, including registration requirements”

Some supporters of the legislation say that a successful application of such a state-law would set a strong precedent and open the door for states to take their own positions on a wide range of other activities that they see as not being authorized to the Federal Government by the Constitution.

Wyoming joins 21 other states considering similar legislation – including New Hampshire, Virginia and Missouri. More
