Smoke and Mirror Phone Scams (Part 3)

Two Senate Letters with

Conclusion

Summary

Daily there are articles referencing the relentless attack on consumers by the epidemic of robocalls and telemarketers since my last posting last month. Senator Feinstein and Senator Harris both responded to my letter of concern on this issue. Coincidentally, Senator Feinstein was recently the victim of an anti-Semitic robocall that circulated in California in mid-May: https://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/Robocall-attacks-Dianne-Feinstein-with-12914413.php

Although a recent large fine was levied against a Florida robocaller by the FCC, consumers still have to rely on robocall blocking technology to address the issue:

Conclusion

It appears that consumers will have to remain vigilant and explore a host of apps and options to address the ongoing and widespread expansion of robocalls and telemarketing schemes before Congress and the FCC can pursue continuous and sustained legal action against these menacing calls.

THE FORMULA FOR FREEDOM

     History, in the year 1800 gave Americans the blueprint for “limited government” which was spearheaded at that time by none other than Thomas Jefferson who grabbed the Presidential election from Aaron Burr.  Yet, the backdrop of that Presidential contest serves as a reminder of what sadly transpires today in the present U.S. political climate and the contests between the “Progressive/Federalists” and those who favor a limited government which lends itself to more attention given to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and individual freedom across the board.

     California and New York are perfect examples of states that are likened to a federalist type of nation while bringing upon the populace, layer upon layer, thousands of laws and numerous fines, along with endless court proceedings, to where  individual freedoms are vanishing at light speed, along with Constitutional protections that were meant to protect the people with the Bill of Rights.

   Today, Federal and State agencies are sadly responsible for  a reign of power that fully oppresses the people, not only with regard to their basic individual freedoms but also their own livelihoods, families and their finances.  Looking through the window of history and President Thomas Jefferson, he had been very troubled by much that had occurred during John Adams’ presidency and was convinced that radicals within Adams’ Federalist Party were waging war against what he called the “spirit of 1776—goals that the American people had hoped to attain by the Revolution. He had earlier characterized Federalist rule as a “reign of witches,” insisting that the party was “adverse to liberty” and “calculated to undermine and demolish the republic.” More

Duty to Warn

By Gary G. Kohls, MD – 5-29-2018

“Slavery is the legal fiction that a person is property. Corporate personhood is the legal fiction that property is a person.” — Anonymous

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In 2010 the pro-corporate 5/4 United States Supreme Court decided, in the Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission ruling that favored multi-billionaire corporate elites and their trans-national corporations by making it easier for them to steal US elections by allowing unlimited, anonymous monetary “contributions”/bribes to both major US political parties, political action groups and the many politicians who were then beholden to their newest corporate paymasters.

The Citizen’s United ruling, which should go down in the history books as the “worst Supreme Court decision of the past century”, has emboldened the already powerful, corruptible and endlessly greedy corporations – that already own or somehow have dominion over the economy, the government and the media – to now also be able to have intimate access to any number of campaign fund-needy politicians to do their will whenever their desired legislation comes up for a vote.

Money Doesn’t Just Talk, It Screams

It is impossible for progressive voters to match the influence that comes from the huge amounts of anonymous campaign money from corporations such as is coming from foreign mining companies. And the monetary influence is aimed at politicians from all the political parties who take corporate money namely Democrats and Republicans. 

This reality explains why progressive northeast Minnesota voters are always having to swallow hard when going to the polls to vote for the latest DFL candidate who is in the process of betraying voters on environmental issues such as the most recent copper mining issue that will eventually spell environmental disaster for everybody, including pro-business, climate change denying conservatives who live downstream from the proposed mines and their massive polluted tailings lagoons..
