ST. PAUL, Min., – May 14, 2014. A bipartisan bill that bans Minnesota law enforcement from obtaining cellphone location tracking information without a warrant passed final hurdles in the state House and Senate today. The House vote was 130-0 and the Senate vote was 63-1.

SF2466 was introduced by Sen. Brandon Petersen (R-Andover) and cosponsored by two democrat and two republican senators. It reads, in part:

A government entity may not obtain the location information of an electronic device without a court order. A court order granting access to location information must be issued only if the government entity shows that there is probable cause the person who possesses an electronic device is committing, has committed, or is about to commit a crime.

SF2466 would not only protect people in Minnesota from warrantless data gathering by state and local law enforcement, it will also end some practical effects of unconstitutional data gathering by the federal government.

NSA collects, stores, and analyzes data on countless millions of people without a warrant, and without even the mere suspicion of criminal activity. The NSA tracks the physical location of people through their cellphones. In late 2013, the Washington Post reported that NSA is “gathering nearly 5 billion records a day on the whereabouts of cellphones around the world.” This includes location data on “tens of millions” of Americans each year – without a warrant.

Do Elections Still Matter?

Election season is upon us.

Local and state elections are taking place and will continue through November 4th with the all-important mid-terms.  Do these elections really matter?  I would suggest perhaps more than ever.  These elections could determine if we ever have another election that even resembles fairness.  All have witnessed the effort to limit free speech and control the press in such a way as to affect the outcome of elections.  We have seen the term “voting intimidation” redefined so it applies for some but not for others based on the whims of the Attorney General.  We have seen efforts to enhance voter irregularities so as to benefit the 1016328_420444734736266_378341861_nMarxist/Progressives.  This election will determine the future control the Marxist/Progressives have to continue to further their agenda to complete the fundamental transformation to a classless Marxist society that was promised in November of 2008.  Not only are the congressional elections critical to stop this course of action, but so are all local and state elections. Many people will be assisting with campaigns, working phone banks and walking precincts.  We learned about private citizens being attacked by the directive of powerful people in Washington.  An example is Catherine Engelbrecht of “True the Vote” who has had the full power of the federal government attack her by a directive of Elijah Cummings.  Freedom Loving Americans advocate that only citizens should be allowed to vote and to prove citizenship is reasonable.  The Marxist/Progressives advocate that anybody should be able to vote including non-citizens, people who died, and pets.  They tell their supporters they should vote early and often.  We recently saw the Marxist/Progressives who advocate voting early and often believe so firmly in this concept that they honor those who admit to breaking the law with multiple votes.  North Carolina is learning many people have voted not only in North Carolina but also in different states.

Southern Poverty Law Center: A threat to our Constitutional Republic

The Intelligence Report published by the Southern Poverty Law Lie Center is out!  On these lists of 21150explosionsupposed threats to the government are the Oathkeepers, Democrats Against Agenda 21 (I am a member!) Post Sustainability Institute,  The Tenth Amendment Center, We Are Change, We The People and many other pro-American and Constitutionally based organizations originating from multiple political philosophies.  SPLC has decided that patriot groups who support the Constitution and are pro-American, are a threat to the nation.  So much so that they compiled these lists of people and groups who scare them really, really bad…..and they send these lists over to any of the federal agencies who spy on us, compile dossiers on all of us and who want to put drones in our skies to watch all of us, I suppose with the thinking that if they keep tattling on others no one will be watching them.

According to SPLC , its magazine the Intelligence Report is the nation’s preeminent periodical monitoring the radical right in the U.S.  The only problem is…….there are just as many on the left and in the middle who are determined to preserve our liberty and our republic and who find the activities of the likes of SPLC to be a cancer on the nation.  This mixing of political ideals seems to pass by those big thinkers at SPLC.

It is our constitutional right!

Who ever thought we would see the day in this country, that advocating for the Constitution, for fundamental freedoms and liberty would be deemed a threat…to the government.  And why would SPLC decide that pro-liberty, anti United Nations interference in our country, and the refusal of law officers and military personal to violate our rights, to possibly use lethal force against us…… as something that represents a threat?  A threat to whom?

We have fundamental liberties that include the right to freely assemble, to freely associate, to travel freely between the states and the freedom of speech, among many others.  The lists SPLC has compiled is viciously opposed to the exercise of these freedoms unless it is in correlation with their philosophy……..whatever that actually is.

An Uber wealthy “non-profit”

The Southern Poverty Law Lie Center had an illustrious history at one time.  Founded primarily to fight for civil rights, the SPLC has devolved into a modern day electronic propaganda machine that peddles disinformation for the government and makes a truckload of money doing it.  This so-called “non-profit” corporation now has net assets as of 2012 ending, of $256,554,758.

From SPLC pages:

The Southern Poverty Law Center is the country’s most effective nonprofit organization fighting dangerous extremist groups. We’ve documented a staggering 1,007 hate groups operating in our country — a nearly 70% increase since 2000.

Actually the SPLC is the country’s most lucrative non-profit dedicated to creating fictional threats out of thin air and, it is by far one of the most dangerous extremist groups operating at this time.  SPLC exists today as a clear and present danger to our Constitutional Republic and advocates ferociously for an end to it.  That is what is staggering.

In truth, the Southern Poverty Law Lie Center has documented very few actual so-called [hate groups].  There are the usual suspects, i.e., the Aryan Brotherhood, etcetera, and instead have focused on those who support the Constitution and who object to the infringement of rights secured by that document.

“…” – Obama’s Answer To Everything.

I’m sure glad I’m not an Attorney working for this Administration. True they are kept busy attempting to dig up validation for circumventing The Constitution, but oh my – they sure should have tried a different one for raising the Debt Limit.

Obscure clause may help US avert default

Some legal experts believe he could, citing the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, adopted in 1868.

With the country still wrestling with post-war divisions, section four of the amendment was written after politicians from the defeated south sought to block the north’s commitment to repay large debts arising from its victorious campaign.

“The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law … shall not be questioned,” it reads.

I’m always curious what those funny little “…”s stand for, so I led myself down the path of actually reviewing what Section Four of the 14th Amendment actually says. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that of the 84 words contained, the Administration chose only 17 words to support their “obscure clause claim”. What could those other 67 words pertain to? More

H.J.res. 62. Amending the Constitution to end states rights?

H. J. Res. 62, Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to give States the right to repeal Federal laws and regulations when ratified by the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States

_______________________

Sounds like a great deal..right?  Wrong!  The states already have the right to repeal Federal laws and regulations.  It is called nullification under the 10th Amendment. 

Or, states can refuse to contract with the Federal government or any of its privately owned corporate agencies thereby refusing the contract and any of its provisions (regulations or laws).

Secondary to this action, is the refusal to accept any federal funding offered to implement what is usually a series of laws or regulations, (these being written by unelected bureaucrats, lobbyists and other interested stakeholders), meant to deprive you of your rights, intrude on your privacy, interfere with your right to engage in business and otherwise reduce and abrogate your constitutionally protected freedoms. 

Article 5 

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.

Any amendments to the Constitution must be ratified by the legislatures of three/fourths of the states.  Congress, neither House nor Senate, has the authority to alter or amend anything in the Constitution in and of their respective bodies. 

So what are they after? More
