THE CASHLESS SOCIETY OR BUST

Leave a comment

Author, Chuck Frank

  • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    With regard to the present worldwide coronavirus meltdown, House Democrats included a provision for a “digital dollar” in their $2.6 trillion draft stimulus bill which they introduced Monday that would provide monthly economic relief to “qualified individuals.”

If this language remains as part of a bailout package meant to help people and businesses, the concept of digital currency instead of a check or cash would be laying a foundation for a cashless society which has been an evil agenda for decades and is seen as the basis of a New World Order.  Is the coronavirus the perfect storm to change the way we live and finally do away with a hard currency that is the  almighty dollar?

The people are already suffering enough from a virus and a political machine that is divided in Congress with many issues.  Instead of coming together as we should when the the times demand it, political party warfare holds we the people as hostages to the rogue bankers, the deep state,  and billionaires who are ready to use the present crises to their advantage, even if it affects people that are suffering or even their own families do.

It  is true that we have those kinds of people in office who will place even their own families in danger for the sake of fulfilling a political agenda, that, in the end, will destroy the dollar, the U.S. Constitution, and our Republic as we know it.   Is the  lust for a global community and a fruitless cause be more important than their love for even their immediate families? Is there any love left  for the “Family of Man.”, black or white, red or yellow?  Their love, in the end, is only for more power and money.  Let the truth be known as one political contest after another continues to unfold, not only in the next election, but for many years thereafter.

Resist this evil lest we all be swept away into a tyrannical government takeover whereby the people will experience the loss of individualism, liberty and freedom which has been the hallmark of the American Dream, but is now at a dire crossroads.  Yet, strangely, a virus is being used to usher in a major global plan that has been around for decades yet half of the people are falling for it?  Who is it that is cheering now for less freedom that will
be lost which is now on the horizon?  It is China and other nations that are bent on government control to the max by using fear and then more high tech systems, which includes drones, computer and cellphone wireless taps, plus Real ID biometric photos. 

Let us never forget, 1984.

Impeachment is only a planned diversion… But you aren’t smart enough to figure that out!

Trump is not the best president we ever had. And Clinton would have been many times worse.

This phony impeachment situation is a bipartisan effort to divert the American public from the collapsing banking systems, and, more importantly….to keep us fighting amongst ourselves. If we were to stop attacking one another the planned and anticipated civil revolt might not happen. And, if the efforts to manipulate the public into rising up fail, all that military equipment that has been doled out to our former “peace officers” who now are called “law enforcement” officers, will sit idle. If the intended use for military equipment in the hands of civil authorities was anything but advanced preparation for what our own government intends to do to us, I don’t know what that reason would be.

There is absolutely NO intention of impeaching Trump. While this vote may have cleared the House, it will never clear the Senate which is controlled by Republicans. The Democrats knew this when they started the stage show and the Republicans played the wounded party. End of impeachment story. You got had America! And all those royal jackasses in D.C. were in on the joke.

Things could only have been worse if Hillary Clinton had been put in office. Maybe ask yourself why those in the House and Senate have not investigated her? Why is she not in prison? Where was the DOJ on that one?

Trump serves a purpose. Widely recognized as being a bully, amoral, childish in his temperament and possibly in the early stages of dementia, he is a useful tool for those who are seeking to overthrow our Constitution, and our representative republic. This man has no knowledge of history, of what life is like for us out here in no man’s land, of how government is supposed to work or what the limits on his office are. Worse, he doesn’t even care to know! And no one, not Republican or Democrat is about to tell him. Most likely because they are just as ignorant as he is of these things.

Demcocracy! Democracy! Who’s got your Democracy??

Screw your “democracy”…democracy is defined as mob rule. The mob in D.C. is ruling everyday against the people it was elected to represent. Personally, I believe the entire House and Senate needs to be impeached and removed from office. They do not listen to us, represent us or defend our Constitution. Why are we paying these people?? Why do we tolerate them and their chronic and ongoing corruption? What is wrong with us as a population that we accept these things and do not demand more, and better representation?

We are at a crossroads America. When the two least qualified individuals are all we had to choose from for president of these United States, we should have known the fix was in. We can do better than this.

Dear Congresscritter,

The impeachment farce in Congress is the same modus operandi that has been used by Wall Street to create civil dissension and establish puppet governments with tyrannical control worldwide for decades. Can we prevent such an occurrence in the United States ?

Wall Street created the CIA in 1946 using their crony Allen Dulles to hide their nefarious war-mongering, such as getting the US involved in WW I and WW II, under a guise of “national security.” Then the CIA used that cover to thwart President Eisenhower’s attempt for Peace talks with Khrushchev by sabotaging their own U-2 flight. Then they sabotaged their own invasion of Cuba in a failed attempt to commit the U.S to all-out war with Cuba [Dulles countermanded JFK’s order]. Then they labeled JFK a traitor when they discovered his secret back-channel peace talks with Moscow (along with JFK’s attack on the Federal Reserve). Mark Lane, John Groden, and Mark North claim the CIA killed JFK. Then they successfully impeached (with bogus CIA corrupted evidence and MSM hype) RMN after he closed the CIA school to teach Tibetans to invade China, and then RMN destroyed the CIA’s straw enemy by opening trade with China in addition to his Midnight Massacre of 1700 CIA agents. Then they schemed to prevent the reelection of JEC [OCTOBER SURPRISE] after he torpedoed a nuclear powered aircraft carrier and his Halloween Massacre of 700 CIA agents. “Conspiracy theorists” conclude 1000 architects and engineers, and Rebekah Roth, present a scenario that appears impossible without the CIA and US military involvement on 9/11. Then the CIA lied to create war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, among many other coups by Wall Street, behind cutouts, as indicated by John Perkins.

Wall Street bankers have initiated and utilized the military to engage in perpetual warfare by lies and deception for their economic profit since 1915. This continuity of influence and control over government policy is now evidenced in the Ukraine and is leading the impeachment fraud against the President after his attempts to avoid nuclear hostility with a super Power. Wall Street cannot tolerate peace.

What action can be taken to discontinue the madness of these psychopathic homicidal megalomaniacs? Well, may I respectfully suggest WHENSE THE DEEP STATE may be one consideration. Ref https://ncc-1776.org/tle2019/tle1050-20191208-10.html

In my Opinion.……

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

Today, the House of Representatives voted to declare a genocide occurred about 100 years ago.

The Democratic-controlled House voted 405-11 in favor of a resolution asserting that it is U.S. policy to commemorate as genocide the killing of 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Empire from 1915 to 1923. The Ottoman Empire was centered in present-day Turkey.

The vote marked the first time in 35 years that such legislation was considered in the full House, underscoring widespread frustration in Congress with the Turkish government, from both Democrats and President Donald Trump’s fellow Republicans.”

Yes! By all means! Let’s poke another country with a big stick because they won’t do our bidding. What is it they have that some big corporation wants?  Oil? Gold?  What?   Apparently the stage is being set for another war of aggression and this is the first prodding to incite that war.  I am sure there will be a profuse amount of propaganda to follow this vote.  Let me see. It goes something like this: 

Their leader is a brutal dictator and we have to go and bring democracy to them. 

He gassed his own people!  Not that one?  Ok….how about …

They have weapons of mass destruction!

Yeah! That one should do it.

Of course no one in DC will be going to war, nor their children nor any of their friends. No.  Wars are to be fought by us commoners.  And if our soldiers make it back home we will treat them like crap and act like nothing happened.  And a whole bunch of people in a foreign country who have done nothing to us will be burying their dead and putting out fires.

Of all the pointless, useless, wasting of time this has to be near the top of the list. Maybe next we could commemorate the genocide of the Iraqi people in our war of aggression after 9/11. A country that had no part in those attacks. Last count I heard was 1.5 million dead and the birth deformities from our use of depleted uranium and other deadly crap has ratcheted that number up. Yes! Let’s do!

Oh! Oh! I know! Let’s commemorate the genocide of the Palestinians under Israeli occupation!! We don’t even have a head count on that one, but of course they’re still busy trying to wipe them out. We’ll just save that one for one of those days when there isn’t much to do in congress. You know, its not like things are going to hell here or anything.

While these elected fools waste precious time, the homelessness in this country is growing by the day.

The jobs promised to return as a result of those massive tax breaks for corporations have not materialized.

60% of college graduates cannot find work in the field they trained for because those jobs are being filled by foreign workers brought into the country under special work visa’s.

The opioid crisis is killing about 17,000 a month.

California is being intentionally set ablaze under the guise of training just before 80 mph winds are expected. (Gosh…wonder how that will turn out?)

The liquidity crisis on Wall Street that has resulted in the Fed offering $690 billion a week to 23 Wall Street securities firms and one foreign bank as well as a newly launched “don’t call it QE4” operation by the Fed to buy up $60 billion a month in Treasury bills from Wall Street dealers.

Thats 690 billion per WEEK of money borrowed in the name of taxpayers because although banks are “too big to fail”, we, the people, are expendable.

Our police departments have been militarized and many have become a threat to their communities, executing people at will and walking away free.

These and many more issues,too many to recount here, and all congress could think to do , all they felt was of national importance, was to declare that a genocide had occurred in a foreign country about 100 years ago just to piss off the government that is there now 100 years later.

Thank you congress! While we wonder if we will have a job next week, or how we are going to pay our rent, buy groceries or pay these extortion rates for crappy health insurance, thank you for wasting all of your time making this commemoration. Is it nap time now?

And while all this goes on the president spent his time tweeting out his usual brand of nonsense.

 

 

The Fed Is Offering $100 Billion a Day in Emergency Loans to Unnamed Banks and Congress Is Not Curious Enough to Hold a Hearing

2 Comments

By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: September 27, 2019 ~

New York Fed Headquarters Building in Lower Manhattan

New York Fed Headquarters Building in Lower Manhattan

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York first initiated its emergency overnight loans to Wall Street this year on Tuesday, September 17, starting off at the rate of $75 billion daily. It then increased its loans by adding, in addition to the $75 billion daily, 14-day term loans in the amount of $30 billion to be offered three times this past week. But after the demand for the first 14-day loan was more than double the $30 billion offered, the New York Fed boosted the next term loans to $60 billion and increased its overnight loans to $100 billion.

What will next week bring? When Wall Street can get super cheap loans from the Fed in the tens of billions of dollars with no questions asked by Congress, it will continue upping its demands until the Fed is once again secretly shelling out trillions of dollars while Congress willfully remains in the dark – in other words, a replay of the 2007-2010 financial crisis.

The New York Fed is only allowed to engage in these repo transactions with its 24 primary dealers. That list of 24 primary dealers includes the securities units of big U.S. banks like JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Bank of America and Wells Fargo, but it also includes the U.S. based securities units of troubled foreign banks like Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, and Societe Generale (SocGen).

Because the New York Fed is not announcing which banks are drawing down the bulk of its loans, neither Congress nor the American people know if the money is flowing to U.S. banks or foreign bank subsidiaries in the U.S. Propping up troubled foreign banks is not what most Americans want their central bank to be doing.

Wyden Statement on the Thirtieth Anniversary of the Whistleblower Protection Act

Leave a comment

April 10, 2019

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

Mr. President, thirty years ago today, the Whistleblower Protection Act was signed into law. To call it a triumph doesn’t do justice to the sheer number of years and people it took on both sides of the aisle to overcome numerous obstacles and enact federal protections for federal government employees who step forward and do what we all should do: expose wrongdoings in order to hold government officials and agencies accountable.

Congressional efforts to protect whistleblowers date back to at least 1912 with the enactment of the Lloyd-La Follette Act of 1912. This act guaranteed the right of federal employees to communicate with members of Congress without the oversight of their employer, and prohibited compensation to managers who retaliated against employees attempting to disclose whistleblower matters.

However, empowering Federal employees to speak up and speak the truth was, and continues to be, an ongoing struggle, one that has often pitted Congress against the Executive Branch. When President George H.W. Bush signed the Whistleblower Protection Act into law that April morning in 1989, it came after his predecessor President Ronald Reagan had vetoed a similar bill despite the fact that it had been unanimously adopted by both the Senate and the House.

The Whistleblower Protection Act, itself, was first introduced by Representative Pat Schroeder of Colorado as an amendment to the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 and then as a stand-alone bill in 1982. The principal purpose of the bill was to block retaliation against employees who came forward, a never-ending problem. The bill would have allowed “a person claiming to be aggrieved by a prohibited personnel practice to: (1) bring a civil action in a U.S. district court against the employee or agency involved (respondent); or (2) seek corrective action through the (Merit Systems Protection) Board.”

While that particular bill ultimately died after receiving unfavorable comments from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the Merit Systems Protection Board, which adjudicates whistleblower complaints, its failure didn’t deter our colleagues from persevering. More

Inside FDA’s Supplement Power Grab

0

Just as we suspected, the FDA is coming after supplements once again. Action Alert!

Recently we told you about a statement made by Commissioner Scott Gottlieb (who has since resigned his post) concerning the FDA’s regulatory approach to dietary supplements. The statement was short on details but gave us cause for concern. Now it appears as if those fears were warranted: the FDA is attempting to create a mandatory list of all supplement products in the US. Such a list could be used to target certain supplements and remove them from store shelves, and we must oppose it.

This revelation comes as a result of the FDA’s release of its 2020 budget estimates. In that document, the FDA requests the authority to “strengthen” its implementation and enforcement of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) by requiring each supplement manufacturer to register all the products it makes, including all the ingredients of those products, with the agency. Note that an act of Congress would be necessary to grant the FDA the authority to create such a list.

Big Pharma Controls Congress

By Dr. John Reizer

If you want to absolutely control the outcome of a sports event, you have to control all the players involved on both teams as well as the referees officiating the contest. You leave nothing to chance. You buy off everyone and everything that could possibly prevent you from achieving the results you’re looking for.

This scenario is what’s been happening for years with regards to healthcare in the United States. Big pharmaceutical companies have secured financial control over the media, lawmakers, Congress and everyone else in the game.

If you are naive enough to believe that healthcare regulating agencies are looking out for the public’s best interests, think again. They’ve been bought and paid for by the pharmaceutical industry. They’re in complete control of everything and there’s not much that anyone can possibly do to reverse the situation except possibly to educate yourself about health and the logic of human physiology. It’s a daunting task, but your life and the lives of your children depend on your efforts. Good luck!

800000 Non Essential Employees?

This was just too good~~

01 11 19

 

 By Anna Von Reitz

If they are “non-essential” why are we paying for their services?

Just  sayin’.

If we don’t need them….what are they doing on our payroll?

Also bear in mind that we have the better part of a million “non-essential” employees on our payroll at the same time that those responsible for this situation are poor-mouthing about their “National Debt”?

Well, if they have an insurmountable National Debt and 800,000 employees we don’t really need, the answer to the problem seems obvious enough to me as an Employer.

First, make the Pink Slips permanent.

Second, deport the two million or so Bar Attorneys, confiscate their ill-gotten assets, give their homes and retirement accounts to the 800,000 unemployed federal workers, use the rest of the gross largess to pay down the “National Debt” and everyone (except the Bar Attorneys) will go home happy.

Very happy.

Talking about humanitarian crisis and borders and forced immigration — what will the Lord Mayor and the Queen do with two million or so unemployed British Merchant Marine Shipping Clerks when they all come home to roost?

You think Europe has trouble with Muslims? And we have trouble with Mexicans and Hondurans? Just think about two million angry disinherited lawyers hitting the streets and unemployment lines in London?

Makes me smile.

Why Can’t We Sue the TSA For Assault?

6 Comments

When I was in Congress and had to regularly fly between DC and Texas, I was routinely subjected to invasive “pat-downs” (physical assaults) by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). One time, exasperated with the constant insults to my privacy and dignity, I asked a TSA agent if he was proud to assault innocent Americans for a living.I thought of this incident after learning that the TSA has been compiling a “troublesome passengers” list. The list includes those who have engaged in conduct judged to be “offensive and without legal justification” or disruptive of the “safe and effective completion of screening.” Libertarian journalist James Bovard recently pointed out that any woman who pushed a screener’s hands away from her breasts could be accused of disrupting the “safe and effective completion of screening.” Passengers like me who have expressed offense at TSA screeners are likely on the troublesome passengers list.Perhaps airline passengers should start keeping a list of troublesome TSA agents. The list could include those who forced nursing mothers to drink their own breast milk, those who forced sick passengers to dispose of cough medicine, and those who forced women they found attractive to go through a body scanner multiple times. The list would certainly include the agents who confiscated a wheelchair-bound three-year-old’s beloved stuffed lamb at an airport and threatened to subject her to a pat-down. The girl, who was at the airport with her family to take a trip to Disney World, was filmed crying that she no longer wanted to go to Disney World.

The TSA is effective at violating our liberty, but it is ineffective at protecting our security. Last year, the TSA’s parent agency, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), conducted undercover tests of the TSA’s ability or detect security threats at airports across the country. The results showed the TSA staff and equipment failed to uncover threats 80 percent of the time. This is not the first time the TSA has been revealed to be incompetent. An earlier DHS study fund TSA screenings and even the invasive pat-downs were utterly ineffective at finding hidden weapons.

In Unanimous Vote, House Says No Legal Right to Attack Iran

1 Comment

Has congress finally gotten a spine???

Counter Information

By Marjorie Cohn

June 06, 2018 “Information Clearing House” –  In a little noticed but potentially monumental development, the House of Representatives voted unanimously for an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2019 (H.R. 5515) that says no statute authorizes the use of military force against Iran.

The amendment, introduced by Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota), states, “It is the sense of Congress that the use of the Armed Forces against Iran is not authorized by this Act or any other Act.”

A bipartisan majority of the House adopted the National Defense Authorization Act on May 24, with a vote of 351-66. The bill now moves to the Senate.

If the Senate version ultimately includes the Ellison amendment as well, Congress would send a clear message to Donald Trump that he has no statutory authority to militarily attack Iran.

This becomes particularly significant in light of Trump’s…

Smoke and Mirror Phone Scams Part II

“Today’s news proves Congress has not their job.  Reports of 18 billion unwanted calls in 2017 by Seattle based tech company HIYA prove that.  Reportedly, over 4 million people complained last year to the federal government about robocalls.

Last month, a reported 2.7 billion robocalls were reported.  Consumer groups have complained the U.S. government is not doing enough.”

Letter to Congress

Update

Last month, I sent correspondence to two Senators and a Congressman in California regarding the need for tougher penalties for robocallers and telemarketing fraud.  Though I have yet to receive a personal response to my letter below, I do believe other members of Congress have moved forward recently this month to introduce similar legislation that was never enacted in 2016:  https://bigislandnow.com/2018/04/18/senators-introduce-legislation-to-fight-illegal-robocalls/.

The Robocall Enforcement Enhancement Act of 2018 is the current legislation this month and the 2016 legislation that was never enacted was S. 3026 ROBOCOP Act mentioned in my letter dated March 23, 2018 to Congress below.

RoboKiller  App works for colleague who detailed positive personal experience

In late February, a colleague and major philanthropist in the wildlife world e-mailed me his following experiences with the RoboKiller App which I am passing on to readers:

“One way on minimizing these calls is using an app called RoboKiller.  It’s not free and cost $29 a year. The system has about 202,255 numbers in its database.  Any call from these numbers will be answered by a bot call from your phone without you even knowing.  The phone will not ring or vibrate. You can choose a random pre-recorded answer, or a specific one, or record your own.  If you are clever how you do it, they will take back your recording and will take them sometime to realize it. If rarely you get a call from a number not in the robocall list, you can add the number yourself, and help the community by adding a new number to the system.  You can also allow calls to come in if they were identified as spammer by mistake.” More

Daylight Saving Time Debacle

“In the interim, Congress or the President could roll back DST to stop on Labor Day and/or for once have the President and Congress agree to eliminate this forced campaign that reportedly cost the U.S. 1.7 billion dollars annually http://www.independent.org/newsroom/article.asp?id=2144.

Ultimately, voters in each of their respective states should have the final say if their respective legislators sink in a bureaucratic quagmire of self-serving political debate.”

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

The debate of DST continues every year here and around the globe. Why can Congress act with warp speed when it comes to certain issues, like H.J. Res. 69 to eliminate the regulations that banned certain predator control hunting methods for bears, wolves and coyotes in Alaska in 2017? Or resolve DACA and the security of our nation going forward without shutting the government down?

The government shutdown reads like a scene out of Ron White’s “You can’t fix stupid.”

When it comes to anything beneficial for the public at large, Congress always exhibits paralysis by analysis. Many opinions abound for and against DST.

Personally, falling back means it is an hour earlier and I have a choice of getting more work done or sleeping an extra hour. The days seems longer and more productive. Maybe it’s just me getting older and wiser. Everyone is different, but we need change.

Why We Sleep by Dr. Matthew Walker, PhD reveals Sleep Loss Epidemic & Health Issues

Recently I listened to Dr. Matthew Walker on a news channel discuss the epidemic of sleep loss in the U.S. There are many factors that contribute to this epidemic and he goes into great depth about these issues into this fascinating book. On page 169, he mentions how “1.5 billion people are forced to reduce their sleep by one hour or less for a single night each year” and details impacts of changing the clock that results in more heart attacks and traffic accidents.

Dr. Walker refers to DST as a “global experiment”. I believe its time to eliminate the experiment imposed on society.

Google “DST Health Problems”

There are many articles and studies that detail the detrimental health issues caused by Daylight Saving Time. When one finds such compelling documentation, evidence and studies, why then has Congress, the current President and former Presidents failed to make a change for the benefit of everyone, including themselves?

Indecision and a paralyzed government seems to prevail in these times of discord and dissension. The public is tired of it and they want decisiveness. More

Another Government Shutdown Shakedown? (Yawn!)

It made absolutely no difference who won the 2016 presidential election. We can vote all we want, but the flight plan doesn’t change. We are being steered to a predetermined end with the only difference being which road we take to get there. This translates into …who will be allowed to profit most from the journey? We already know who will pay the bill.

Trump’s biggest problem was and is that he thought he was actually going to be running things…he’d be the “boss”. He’s obviously had his butt handed to him and now has back peddled on EVERY campaign promise he made. And we are just verging in the end of the first 100 days of his administration.

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

Here we go again. The threat of a so-called “government shutdown”. IF only that would happen on a level beneficial to the country. But it won’t. Nothing that affects the daily grinding of federal agencies as they mismanage employees, programs and massive amounts of money will be affected. Both houses of congress will continue to gather and to collect their pay checks, their golden fleece insurance perks and, bribery from special interests hand delivered by lobbyists. Of course, we don’t dare call it bribery; we call it “campaign donations”, “political contributions” and other euphemisms meant to disguise the pay-to-play business of government.

https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/blog/2013/10/01/whats-affected-government-shutdown

Checking a list of government agencies affected in 2013 and 2015, it is apparent that the only people and agencies affected to any degree, are low-level staffers and even lower level employees of agencies.

A sample from that list:

  • Vital services that ensure seniors and young children have access to healthy food and meals may not have sufficient Federal funds to serve all beneficiaries in an extended lapse.
  • Call centers, hotlines and regional offices that help veterans understand their benefits will close to the public.
  • And, veterans’ compensation, pension, education and other benefits could be cut off in the case of an extended shutdown.
  • Every one of America’s national parks and monuments, from Yosemite to the Smithsonian to the Statue of Liberty, will be immediately closed.
  • New applications for small business loans and loan guarantees will be immediately halted.
  • Research into life-threatening diseases and other areas will stop and new patients won’t be accepted into clinical trials at the National Institutes of Health.
  • Work to protect consumers, ranging from child product safety to financial security to the safety of hazardous waste facilities, will cease. The EPA will halt non-essential inspections of chemical facilities and drinking water systems.
  • Permits and reviews for planned energy and transportations projects will stop, preventing companies from working on these projects.
  • Loans to rural communities will be halted.
  • Hundreds of thousands of Federal employees including many charged with protecting us from terrorist threats, defending our borders, inspecting our food, and keeping our skies safe will work without pay until the shutdown ends.
  • Hundreds of thousands of additional Federal workers will be immediately and indefinitely furloughed without pay.

Congress repealed FCC privacy rules for the internet

6 Comments

It’s already begun. Just days after Congress voted to kill Internet privacy, Verizon has announced plans to install spyware on every Android phone on their network [1][2].

Protecting and encrypting your online life is more urgent than ever before.

Lawmakers who have taken hundreds of thousands of dollars from Big Cable companies [3] used a Congressional rule that gave them a small window to repeal the FCC privacy rules, which would have protected Internet users from some of the creepiest things their Internet service providers (ISPs) can do. But Congress just let ISPs like Verizon and Comcast in on:

  • Your health history
  • Your financial status & how much money you make
  • Where you go
  • Your political and religious views
  • What products you buy, and so much more

Apathy is no longer an option.

The time to start securing your most private information online is right now.

Our easy, 6-step guide, #GetSafe, shows you how.

Congress voting to kill Internet privacy is bad– but there are still really meaningful things that you can do to increase your privacy, and if you’re not doing them, you’re leaving yourself completely vulnerable.

HR 1215: Congress Voting to Gut Elder Abuse Protections – Call Today!

1 Comment

Click here for a fact sheet on H.R. 1215 

Congress is considering a devastating anti-justice wish list in H.R. 1215. The bill would federalize (so long states’ rights!) health care malpractice lawsuits, severely limiting victim’s access to justice. Aside from imposing price caps on justice, the bill would eliminate state protections, including California’s elder abuse statutes. H.R. 1215 represents a craven effort to immunize health care providers from accountability for malpractice and terrible care.

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

The first question I want to ask the president and all the members of congress is, why did you hate the way America was? The saying goes ‘love it or leave it’. Why are you still living here?   Why did you tell us you wanted to serve and represent your fellow citizens, then turn your back on us and our country? We did not plan or carry out the attacks on America on Sept. 11, 2001, but you have treated us like we did.”

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

Traditionally, the New Years holiday is marked by the hope of a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, and high hopes of a better year ahead. We make resolutions to right the wrongs in our life and promise ourselves we’ll be a better person to all the people we know, and treat ourselves better as well. But just as we were saying a private prayer that we could indeed achieve our goals, our president, the man that the entire world placed the deepest of faith, trust, and hope in, delivered a crushing, sickening, blow to our gut. He chose to ring in the New Year with a razor sharp dagger to the American heart, by signing legislation called the National Defense Authorization Act. The NDAA. The most UNAmerican, cold blooded, and brutal piece of legislation ever to cross a president’s desk. The fact that he would choose the holiday season to betray the oath he made to America and her citizens, screamed louder than words. With his signature he revealed a shocking lack of basic decency, and displayed the true feelings he has towards the country he leads. As a real American, I have some questions I would like answered.

What law says the text of the TPP must remain secret?

              What law says the text of the TPP must remain secret?

By Jon Rappoport
May 15, 2015

To the US Congress: reveal the contents of the TPP now

It seems like a case of mass hypnosis. People claiming they can’t say what’s in the TPP trade agreement. And mainstream media accept this premise.

“That’s right. Congress must stay silent.”

Pop quiz: who says the text of the TPP must remain secret?

Under what authority?

Members of Congress are scuttling around like weasels, claiming they can’t disclose what’s in this far-reaching, 12-nation trade treaty.

They can go into a sealed room and read a draft, but they can’t copy pages, and they can’t tell the public what they just read.

Why not?

If there is a US law forbidding disclosure, name the law.

Can you recall anything in the Constitution that establishes secret treaties?

Is there a prior treaty that states the text of all treaties can be hidden from the people?

I see no authority anywhere that justifies withholding the text of the TPP.

Government legislators in the other 11 nations: why can’t you reveal what’s in the TPP?

Mass silence around the world. “Sorry, we can’t say what’s in the treaty. We’ll vote on it, but you the people have no input. You have to take what we do on faith.”

Who says so? By what authority?

If a US Senator held a press conference today and explained everything he read in that sealed room about the TPP, what exactly would happen to him? Would he be arrested?

Would he be charged with a federal crime?

What crime?

Our clandestine agent in the White House has obtained a first draft of President Obama’s upcoming State of the Union address to Congress.

I am well on my way, but I am not yet there. FDR, who was the most successful nation-transformer before me, had four terms and a compliant Congress. Now that those of you sitting on the right side of the aisle nominally control Congress, my task is harder, and may require an additional term or two as president.

Mid-term elections: America loses again

We just swapped one bunch of crooks, liars and thieves for the other bunch of crooks, liars and thieves. The country just went “red” more from embarrassment than anything else. You should be embarrassed and turning beet red from being duped yet again. 2/3 of us didn’t even bother to show up to vote. What’s the point?

fascismamerica01About last night…..

I scoured the usual lineup of cable news shows to see what the response was there to the mid-terms. At one point on MSNBC where Rachael Maddow was predictably finding humor in the elections, I wondered out loud what was wrong with this woman? According to Maddow, the elections weren’t really as bad as they seemed on the surface and we should just laugh them off. They really didn’t mean anything or at least not what we thought they did. This wasn’t really a political shellacking, it was just a rub & buff…nothing more. HaHaHa….Isn’t this funny? No, it isn’t.

The remainder of the scripted reality shows we call news on MSNBC also pandered to the “its not what you think” line. Yes it was what we think. More than that, its what we know. We just traded one old man for another old man; both of them nested up for years inside the beltway and so detached from the public that neither of them try to hide their disgust for “We the People”. We just opened the door to another neo-con assault on the nation. Pardon me for not laughing.

Faux news was ready to implode as one hack after another jubilantly reported the shellacking of America via the elections and what is nothing less than the return of the neo-cons. Already they are talking about “deregulation”.

LEGISLATION BY REGULATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION

Rnee Nal – The Brenner Brief

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

It is past time for Americans to take another look at the process which allow rules and regulations to be regularly imposed on Americans without proper representation.

Government mandates in the form of rules equal legislation without representation. “Agencies get their authority to issue regulations from laws (statutes) enacted by Congress,” according to the government’s Federal Register website. “Typically,” the fact sheet continues, “when Congress passes a law to create an agency, it grants that agency general authority to regulate certain activities within our society.”

1461111_657716987585122_125931567_nThe Federal Register Act received approval on July 26, 1935 under Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Since then, “the Federal Register system expanded and evolved as the nation’s leaders gained experience using the system to conduct the business of government in times of peace and war.”

Not surprisingly, there is a lack of transparency in the rule making process, as not every rule is in the Federal Register, thanks to the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), which called for the public commenting process, yet “permits agencies to finalize some rules without first publishing a proposed rule in the Federal Register,” such as when “for good cause [an agency] finds that notice and public procedure thereon are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.”

Why would any rule ever be “contrary to the public interest?” And who makes that determination? And why would taxpayers ever agree to a rule that is “contrary to the public interest”? More

IT’S TIME FOR THE ARTICLES OF FREEDOM TO BE THE BASIS FOR A NATIONALIST THIRD PARTY IN AMERICA

Leave a comment

 strip banner
new-logo25By John W. Wallace – NY OathKeeper
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Let the facts reveal – the Federal Government of the United States of America, which was instituted to protect the rights of individual citizens, instead – threatens our life, liberty and property through usurpations of the Constitution; and emboldened by our own lack of responsibility and due diligence in these matters, has exceeded its mandate, and abandoned those founding principles which have made our nation exceptional;”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I believe that our individual Freedoms and Liberties, as well as our nation’s sovereignty, are in danger because of the unconstitutional actions of our federal government, both Republicans and Democrats. I was a New York delegate to Continental Congress 2009, held in St. Charles, Illinois from November 11th to November 22nd, 2009 and I am also a signer to the “Articles of Freedom.”

I firmly believe that the time has come to establish a third party, a nationalist party, whose members and elected representatives truly support the United States Constitution. Like millions of my fellow Americans, I have raised my right hand and took an oath “to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

How could anyone who has pledged to support and defend the Constitution, reconcile the following violations of the Constitution that are destroying America? 

1. For many, many decades, our Government has been meddling in the internal affairs of other countries, without any Constitutional authority, causing foreign nationals to direct their hostilities towards us, which has given us a War on Terror and a growing Police State at home that is repugnant to the Fourth Amendment and the General Welfare of a Free People; More

Exclusive: Wild Horse and Wild Burro Good News and Bad News from Twin Peaks HMA

 

Exclusive report from “Grandma” Gregg, Environmental Researcher and Jesica Johnston, B.A., M.A in Biology and Environmental Planning

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

“The forage has grown back from last summer’s fire and there is an abundance of food…”

DSC06304_zps35963a14 (1)Last weekend several experienced wildlife observers with binoculars and long-distance camera lens thoroughly combed 77 miles of the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area (HMA) and found only 27 wild horses and 5 wild burros. Is this good news or bad news? This is good news for those few wild horses and burros that remain on their legally designated land, but bad news for the Twin Peaks HMA as a whole. The forage has grown back from last summer’s fire and there is an abundance of food as was obvious by the condition of the few vigorous and healthy wild horses and burros that were observed, but this is still a small and discouraging number of wild horses and burros. This survey is consistent with previous surveys and documentation supporting the impacts of an enormous and devastating roundup in 2010. There seems to be few remaining wild horses and burros in the Twin Peaks HMA. In our two days of ground observation the BLM’s mantra of the term “excess” was on our minds as we traveled numerous miles; most of which had nodsc06304_zps35963a14-1 wild horses or burros or even signs of wild horses and burros. This public land is set aside by Congress principally for wild horses and burros, but there are very few that remain since the roundup of 2010. It is hard to believe when the BLM says there are 1,750 out here again…

Click (HERE) for the entire independent observers’ summary report and many photos.

There has been no further official round-up announcement for Twin Peaks since last fall’s after the Rush Fire Environmental Assessment was published by BLM stating that they were going to capture and remove all but about six-hundred wild horses and burros. It is unknown at this time when this capture has been rescheduled for but in the meantime BLM did an aerial population survey in April of this year and stated there were 1,750 wild horses and burros on the Twin Peaks HMA. This data was FOIA’d and although that number was written on the aerial log, they only photographed 460. They had two photographers in the helicopter and per their map a very thorough coverage of the HMA was done, but they only physically photographed 460 wild horses and burros. Even though we paid with our tax money for four BLM employees and the cost of the helicopter to document the actual population of wild horses and burros … they did not. Over the four days in flight only 26% of the wild horses and burros that were “counted” were photographed.

In fact there were far more photos taken of coyotes, elk, antelope, and other landscape features than of wild horses and burros. Although there was ample opportunity, this left 1.290 wild horses and burros that they “counted” undocumented with photos during the census flight. Why? The aerial census over the four days clearly fails to sufficiently document BLM’s stated wild horse and burro population.

In the meantime, this Thursday will be an important day for the future of the Twin Peaks HMA and all wild horses and burros. This is the first time in the history of the Wild Horse Act that an Appeals Court will determine whether the BLM’s interpretation of the Act is consistent with Congress’s intent to protect these living symbols of the West over 40 years ago.

The 2010 Twin Peaks roundup resulted in the permanent removal of more than 1,500 wild horses and 160 burros from the range. As of August 2012, 977 of the wild horses and burros removed from the range were still in “holding” and hundreds more have died or been sold by BLM to “questionable” buyers and they cannot be accounted for. The BLM failed to consider data regarding ecological resources in the herd management area, and also illegally harassed and captured horses that were not even considered “excess” by BLM’s own standards. Don’t miss this important hearing – please fill the courtroom and show your support for the Twin Peaks wild horses and burros. They need you there…

What: Appeal Hearing for the Twin Peaks Wild Horses and Burros
When: Thursday, August 29, 2 pm – please arrive no later than 1:30 pm
Where: Ninth Circuit Courthouse, 125 South Grand Ave., Pasadena

Why So Little, So Late?

8 Comments

In my struggle, shared with some 190 million of my fellow citizens, to fathom why the Congress waited until the ’10th’ hour, albeit 24 hours late, to pass legislation preventing the draconian impact of the ‘fiscal cliff,’  it came to me this morning.

 

The necessary debate and final vote during the holidays between December 24th and January 2nd occurred during what is as close to a news blackout as we can muster in this, the age of 24/7 communication.

 

Most of us had simply tuned out.

 

While many of us were ho-ho-hoing and, hopefully, arranging for the designated driver, they thought they could slip this bit of buffoonery past us.

 

They had overlooked the third part of the trilogy:  You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.

(attributed to Abraham Lincoln)

Why did they miss the deadline by twenty-two hours?  Well, date-time math is tough, what with all those 12s and 60s.  Even the Excel spreadsheet has trouble with some of the concepts.

 

By the way, we have no lock on this math challenge, either geographically or in time.  In the Jonathan Swift 1726 satire spun around the travels of Lemuel Gulliver, Lem meets the Laputans:

 

“Laputa’s population consists mainly of educated people, who are fond of mathematics, astronomy, music and technology, but fail to make practical use of their knowledge. Servants make up the rest of the population.

 

“The Laputans have mastered magnetic levitation and discovered the two moons of Mars (which in reality would not be discovered for another 150 years). However, they are unable to construct well-designed clothing or buildings, because they take measurements with instruments such as quadrants and a compass rather than with tape measures.”  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laputa)

 

Remember, not ALL of us, not ALL the time!

 

The insanity of Obamacare in one sentence

Dr. Barbara Bellar Candidate for Illinois State Senate, District 18 sums up Obamacare in one sentence.
————-

“Let me get this straight. This is a long sentence.

We’re going to be gifted with a healthcare plan we are forced to purchase,
and fined if we don’t,
which puportedly covers at least 10 million more people,
without adding a single new doctor,
but provides for 16000 new IRS agents,
written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it,
passed by a congress that didn’t read it but exempted themselves from it,
and signed by a president who smokes,
with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes,
for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect,
by a government which has already bankrupted social security and medicare,
all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese,
and financed by a country that’s broke.

UN Small Arms Treaty & Obama’s six-point plan for global war

23 Comments

_______________________________________________________________________

A war of lies on a global scale

Most Americans have their eye on the UN Small Arms Treaty; a treaty intended to circumvent our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms.  The backlash against this treasonous treaty is massive, not only because it is a direct assault on the 2nd Amendment and our right to defend ourselves against an increasingly tyrannical government, but because it also is the final act in handing over control of our military to a foreign government: the United Nations.  This submission of US military forces to UN control was exposed in the recent testimonies of Panetta and Dempsey in front of the Senate committee, claiming they go to the UN for approval for war, not to congress.

The absolute silence from the Senate committee members regarding this claim, and the subsequent refusal and failure of the Senators to have  Panetta and Dempsey immediately arrested and charged with treason, spoke volumes about who and what these Senators actually represent.  To have this declaration of subordination to the UN expressed by these two jackasses was then followed up by Hillary Clinton joining the fray at the UN on the Small Arms Treaty.

Hillary Clinton has said she will sign the treaty, although she has no constitutional authority to do so, and Obama has said he will second that signing, also an act of treason, not to mention unconstitutional. Supposedly, the treaty can then be handed over to the State department for enforcement, bypassing the Constitutional requirement that any such treaty be ratified by the Senate.  The problem is, it would not be a constitutionally recognized treaty and would not be the supreme law of the land trumping states laws and rights, but it will be sold to the public as if it is and all your state officials will submit your state to it.

Panetta, Dempsey and treason: And Congress did nothing

28 Comments

 Marti Oakley Copyright 2012

_____________________________________________________________________

The recent statements by Leon Panetta and joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, to the effect that they are under no obligation to the Congress to seek their permission to start wars.  Both Panetta and Dempsey claim their authority comes from the United Nations and NATO.  These were clear and unambiguous declarations of submission to foreign governments, agencies and organizations and ended with the dismissing of the Constitution as not applicable to them or their decisions. I have to wonder why both men were not frog-marched out of the meeting and straight to jail.  But then, we are talking about the District of Criminals here and we know it is rare that anyone from the District ever goes to jail no matter how anti-American, unlawful or unconstitutional or treasonous their activities or views.

Both men did however, say they might inform congress

Panetta was asked by Senator Jeff Sessions, “We spend our time worrying about the U.N., the Arab League, NATO and too little time, in my opinion, worrying about the elected representatives of the United States. As you go forward, will you consult with the United States Congress?”

The Defense Secretary responded “You know, our goal would be to seek international permission. And we would come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress.”

So, if I understand this correctly: They would seek permission from non-US entities and then if they thought it was any business of the United States as to how our military would be used…….they would make a decision as to whether or not they would “want” to get permission from Congress?  And these two are actually still walking around free?

Note:  My goal would be to see Panetta and Dempsey both tried for treason and publicly hung.  International permission be damned and congress along with it. 

I believe it was this moment in time that Senator Sessions and his companions in the meeting realized that they were being given notice that their services were no longer needed.  Panetta and Dempsey publicly, effectively declared that Congress was of no further use.  More

Please! “Throw Them All Out!”

 You’ve got to read this book!

I read several books each month.  Seldom have I read anything that infuriated me more; that made me want to jump up and bang my head in the wall out of frustration and anger than “Throw Them all Out!” by Peter Schweitzer.   

Buy the book here! 

 

While we have labored under the gross mismanagement of the federal government and the ensuing and massively un-repayable national debt that has been steadily building over the last 25 years in particular that resulted in the markets collapsing from unbridled banking and stock market corruption, those fine jackasses in the District of Criminals have made a killing using insider information to trade, sell and buy stocks that would be directly affected by legislation they were pushing.  

If ever there was an argument for term limits, for ending what Schweitzer calls the Permanent Political Class, this book is it. 

You cannot read this book and not be outraged over the insider trading, the self-enrichment and the selling out of the public as congress, both Republican and Democrat alike make money while the rest of the country slides into an economic abyss.

A Pack Of Wolves Loose In Washington D.C.

6 Comments

Source:  New World Reporter

by R.F. Goggin (Contributing Author)
(NWR) – It would seem that our federally elected politicians in the U.S., have not been financially afflicted, much like the bulk of Americans since the economic downturn of 2008. No big surprise there, perhaps, but let us ordinary citizens hopefully realize that if things keep going as they are, these very same Washington D.C. officials will be telling us all that we need to make sacrifices for the greater good of the country. They will suggest such things as cutting food stamps for the poor or struggling, medical care for the elderly, etc., and likely seek to introduce a variety of new austerity measures, depending on how poorly our economy performs.

Figures from The New Center for Responsive Politics (a respectable, non-profit research group located on-line at opensecrects.org) paint a revealing picture of just how well politicians are doing compared to just about everyone else in America. One glaring example is that of Representative Ed Pastor (D. AR), who upon entering Congress In 1991 with somewhere around $100,000 in savings; being roughly about the same amount that he was indebted to banks or credit card companies, etc., has somehow since become just one more within the crowd of 250 millionaire members of Congress.

The divide between the financial security of our lawmakers in the nation’s capitol and the average American is reaching an epic and ridiculous disproportion. Significant enough to make any reasonable citizen suspect that their federal representatives can’t possibly be interested in changing a status quo of which has been making so many of them so much money. In case it may come as news to some folks, 47% of people serving in Congress are millionaires or multi-millionaires. Suffice as to say, one is not going to bump into any Washington politicians trying to save a buck at Wal-mart anytime soon, unless perhaps they are Presidential candidates seeking votes.

How is it then, that Congress people prosper while in office? One way, according to the convicted former lobbyist and government insider, Jack Abramoff, is to trade stock with the foreknowledge of privileged information that will have some effect on the exchange market. Opportunities made possible, because the United States Congress for some unfair, inexcusable and ungodly reason – is exempt from insider trading rules and regulations. Go figure? More

Ask President Obama and the Congress why… 

The first question I want to ask the president and all the members of congress is: Why did you hate the way America was? 

The saying goes ‘love it or leave it’. 

Why are you still living here?  

Why did you tell us you wanted to serve and represent your fellow citizens, then turn your back on us and our country?  We did not plan or carry out the attacks on America on Sept. 11th 2001, but you have treated us like we did.   You’ve sent our valiant soldiers to the other side of the world to avenge 9/11 and stop another attack, but have stood silently by while there was an invasion of the U.S. at our southern border. 

Why have you failed to protect us from that? 

Why have you let the ‘terrorists win’ by destroying everything that was wonderful about America?  You’ve taken away our reason to fly our flag proudly and shamed our name around the world with your legalized brutality and torture.  More
