THE ROOTS OF REBELLION, ANARCHY, TERRORISM AND INDEBTEDNESS

In finding the most recent roots of anarchy and terrorism, one must look no farther than the person who was elevated to the Demi-god of the the American university community. With that said, Karl Marx is the most assigned economist in U.S. college curriculum.

The Communist Manifesto (1848) written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels represents a revolutionary philosophy that sought to encourage civil unrest and working-class revolutions throughout the the world. “The Communist Manifesto” still ranks as the most frequently assigned text in American universities and Karl Marx is also the most assigned economist in U.S. college classes to this day.

Additionally, this philosophical culture is linked to far left “intellectualism” and exists among those who are graduates from college who continue in their careers and then become teachers or politicians that will shun nationalism and individualism but then will embrace collective thought and progressivism which is now but a cover for Marxism and a centralized tyrannical government which George Orwell warned us about in his famous novel, 1984. However, college students in general still take the collectivism bait and that is one reason why Americans are still today seeing an ever increasing unrest which is being promoted by various groups who do not understand that the entire end game will be total population control with the likes of Red China while religiously tracking every person in America, using either a Real ID card or a mandated biometric vaccine data identifier or a Radio Frequency Chip imbedded into ones hand.

    Alas.  The beginning of the hour of trial is quite possibly upon us as America and its people enter into the realm of uncharted waters, while government and corporate entities delve further into the idea of mandating a Coronavirus Vaccine.

While embracing totalitarian control, once off of the drawing board, the COVID-19 Vaccine, which is partly funded by Bill Gates, is meant to be injected into one’s arm for the purpose of “protecting” humanity from the “deadly” virus.  Whether scripted or not, the agenda is the first of its kind which may come with an invisible tattoo which is made visible through the use of a special smartphone camera app and filter to prove that the person was vaccinated.  This so called ID may also be tied to a “digital certificate” as proof of one’s vaccination!

Include this with the mandated RFID, Real ID Drivers License deadline which was extended until October 1, 2021.  What next, will the implementation of an RFID chip implanted into one’s hand, become the perfect marker for tracking 300 million plus people in America for the sole purpose of control?  “We will be just like China.”  And by the time John and Jane Doe graduates from school, they will not have read one word in any book that was assigned to them that had the word “freedom” in it. That will be censored.  Finally, all of the books and posts by Google, YouTube and the rest of the Babylonian online Empire will have those and other words censored as well, and especially entire articles such as this one in the link below which was just taken down by YouTube but saved on another link, here…
https://www.bitchute.com/video/aNjeT1G6iGTh/

In summary, heed this warning for the sake of yourselves, your family, your friends and your country.  Tyranny is knocking at the door while freedom has taken a hit and a rather huge hit at that, beginning with 911 but now with COVID-19.  Don’t forget it was big daddy government looking out for your “safety.”

Beyond 1984

George Orwell was compelled to write the book 1984 because he had a heart for Mankind and did not want to see the “free world” end up as a tyrannical country such as the former Soviet Union or Red China.  The wish to rule with unlimited power has been the desire of the ages.  Yet, here
we are again with the people of the world and leaders, on the razors edge of tyranny because of a plague that has infected not only the body but also those keen “minds” that know the difference between reason and treason, freedom and tyranny.

“Political solutions” follow when disasters and hardships come to the surface, while at the same time, “behavioral mod” used by governments may command “conformity” on a large scale, while, at the same time, love and compassion and normal human interactions are at the crossroads.  How might America navigate through an event such as this present calamity, if the people themselves have also been infected from within by a mega-virus of being divided and disunited from each other with regard to politics and religion?  This division must stop!

If we the people are to stand and heal from such a disaster and a mighty crushing whirlwind that has swept through the country, then it is necessary that we all come together in one accord and harmony like never before, lest the entire country be lost to a loveless, surveillance, high-tech superstate, with such a magnitude that even George Orwell would roll over in his grave at the very site of it!  With that said, thankfully, the Real ID mandate has been pushed to October 1, 2121 but hopefully will be banned forever.  We are not sheep to be led to the slaughter.

Let us all now be sensitive and have true compassion for one another. Yes, and let us come and reason together and save ourselves, our loved ones and the unlovable.  Let that be our endless mission, and when historians finally lay out what America  accomplished out of love for one another, this will be a reminder to all nations of how people should act and respond when calamity strikes.  May these words inspire us to renew our faith in all that we do.  Be blessed and go forward now and forever.

Trump to Declare a State of Emergency? Goodbye America!

What does this mean to us?

State of emergency

Legal declaration by a government allowing assumption of extraordinary powers

A state of emergency (also known as a state of calamity in the Philippines) is a situation in which a government is empowered to perform actions that it would normally not be permitted. A government can declare such state during a disaster, civil unrest, or armed conflict. Such declaration alerts citizens to change their normal behavior and orders government agencies to implement emergency plans. Justitium is its equivalent in Roman law—a concept in which the senate could put forward a final decree (senatus consultum ultimum) that was not subject to dispute.

States of emergency can also be used as a rationale or pretext for suspending rights and freedoms guaranteed under a country’s constitution or basic law.
Wikipedia

At the edge of the proverbial cliff

Here we are facing the final stage of the destruction of our country as a sovereign nation.  We, as a supposedly free people, are about to face a national Armaghedon.  Under an emergency declaration, our constitution, or what is left of our rights and protections, are cast aside to make way for the reorganizing of the worlds economies and the subjugation of all populations.  All of this achieved by the hyping up of a virus that does not meet any standard for being declared an epidemic or pandemic.

Just to make sure you reach the proper level of fear, university’s, college’s and public schools are closed in numerous locations across the country.  The common connection in each of these instances is their tie to federal funding.  Want to keep your funding?  CLOSE YOUR DOORS!  That will scare them!

Demystifying the COVID-19 Pandemic: The Real Danger is “Agenda ID2020”

What is the infamous ID2020? It is an alliance of public-private partners, including UN agencies and civil society. It’s an electronic ID program that uses generalized vaccination as a platform for digital identity.”

“It seems, the more there is written about the causes of the Coronavirus – the more the written analyses are overshadowed by a propaganda and fear-mongering hype. Questions for the truth and arguments for where to look for the origins and how the virus may have spread and how to combat it, are lost in the noise of wanton chaos. But isn’t that what the ‘Black Men’ behind this intended pandemic want – chaos, panic, hopelessness, leading to human vulnerability – a people becoming easy prey for manipulation?

Today WHO declared the coronavirus COVID-19 a “pandemic” – when there is not the slightest trace of a pandemic. A pandemic might be the condition, when the death to infection rate reaches more than 12%. (emphasis mine)

In Europe, the death rate is about 0.4%, or less. Except for Italy, which is a special case, where the peak of the death rate was 6% (see below for further analysis).

China, where the death rate peaked only a few weeks ago at about 3%, is back to 0.7% – and rapidly declining, while China is taking full control of the disease – and that with the help of a not-spoken-about medication developed 39 years ago by Cuba, called “Interferon Alpha 2B (IFNrec)”, very effective for fighting viruses and other diseases, but is not known and used in the world, because the US under the illegal embargo of Cuba does not allow the medication to be marketed internationally.

WHO has most likely received orders from “above”, from those people who also manage Trump and the “leaders” (sic) of the European Union and her member countries, those who aim to control the world with force – the One World Order. More

The Real Endgame: A Global Biometric

The seeing eyes of the state and federal law enforcement, along with Intelligence groups from foreign countries means the following.   America, you are in for a big surprise.  The Real ID Card which is a truly invasive biometric identifier that mirrors a communist regime and takeover of the people’s rights, will be loaded with super surveillance features that basically places every single person in America under a “probable cause” microscope. In addition, the Real ID Card is simply a non-encrypted drivers license which allows all of ones information and data to made available to Big Brother, the world at large,  and also countless hacker geeks.  Really?  There’s more.

Within the framework of the Real ID Card, the Secretary of Homeland Security, DHS, has the unconstitutional power to list on someone’s Real ID, data within the DMV database, such as the “purchase of a weapon”, ammunition, pick up a prescription from a drug store, etc.  This is sweeping power to the max and as a reminder, there is nowhere in the U.S. Constitution that allows this much invasion of ones privacy.  One of the past Secretaries of the DHS, Secretary Chertoff explained that this means in the end, a Real ID would be needed to cash a check, hire a baby sitter, board a plane and countless other activities.

However, the greatest objection to the Real ID is the fact that it comes with a digital facial image which is unlike the old standard photo which lacked biometrics.  The new facial image procedure precisely measures all of the various points that make up one’s  face, thereby making a mistaken identity nearly impossible.  This has now become the global standard and has been adopted by the ISO, (International Organization for Standardization.) As for the final implementation of the Real ID and for boarding an airplane, the mandated card cutoff for America is October 1, 2020.

Other International agencies have climbed on board and are already sharing information/data/samples with countries all over the world.  The New
World Order will become a warrant less dragnet.  The FBI is spending over 1 billion dollars to create the worlds largest biometric database which may also include the DHS goal of taking pictures from a distance in order to obtain iris scans and fingerprints.  It is just a matter of time to where some states in America will eventually go from the Real ID card to the implanted chip(a grain of rice designed by Dr. Carl Sanders) that can be implanted into the hand between one’s thumb and their pointer finger.

(Ref., Second Edition, House Of Lords: This Train Is Bound For Glory,
The Real ID Card, page 119).  Author, Charles W. Frank

And for those who agree to take the Real ID or the inevitable implanted chip, the right to one’s anonymity will be lost, while at the same time, that person will become a slave and a pawn within a dark New World Order to where where freedom, nationalism, democracy or a republic will be lost by design but through great deception.

As for moral or religious and libertarian concerns, the trumpet is being blown everywhere so that we the people will heed this warning because, in
the end, millions would be branded like cattle while being led down that wide road to tyranny and finally destruction.

House of Lords: This Train is Bound for Glory

3 Comments

Editor notes:   

Chuck Frank is a featured author here on the PPJ. Congratulations on the success of your book!  Mr. Frank’s book may be purchased here!

“The republication of my book HOUSE OF LORDS is now out and can now be bought on Amazon.  Beginning November 23 for 3 days the book will be promoted at the Miami International Book Street Fair and then later on next year in April at the L.A. Times Book Fair.”

 

 

House of Lords covers today’s issues and those grave implications of the invasion of privacy with the Real ID mandate as being a very deep concern, while the author also exposes “Fake News” back in 2009 which is now a common expression.

Charles comments in his book on a 2005 proposal to establish a North American Union:

“Why don’t we also include South America, throw out the U.S Constitution, and we’ll all be, one big happy family”. He predicted the acceleration of job losses to other countries, which became a catalyst for the election of President Donald Trump.

We’ve come to the edge of an abyss as public apathy, government corruption and an overall moral malaise has overtaken our republic. With good men doing nothing, the end will come quickly. “House of Lords” is a remarkably insightful and thought provoking illumination of our national predicament.

To all of you who dutifully supplied all that information to the Department of Motor Vehicles so that you might obtain that special gold star on your driver license…. I don’t even know what to say to you. I want to ask you why you did not stand up and refuse this infringement of your right to travel freely, without being tagged and marked in a tracking system meant to be used against you if it should become convenient to do so.

I know….you haven’t done anything wrong and you have nothing to hide so you don’t mind if they spy on you, track you, impede your right to travel freely, and whatever else they can come up with to let you know, YOU ARE THE ENEMY THE GOVERNMENT FEARS MOST.

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

Dear Government: Please let me save you some time and put your paranoid collective minds to rest. Tap into that massive data collection center you built down there in Utah. There is a plethora of information on file there about me (along with everyone else), which details every possible bit and piece of information about me, whether relevant or not, useful or not, true or not, in volumes so massive that it boggles the mind. You have collected:

  • every email I have written or received,
  • every phone call I made or received,
  • every comment or interaction I have had anywhere at any time for any reason,
  • and stored all of it in a massive and useless mountain of information that has no other purpose than to assuage your fear and,
  • to be used possibly in the future against me.

For instance: In case you decide you need to construct a fictitious case against me for having the audacity to question your motives and intentions when you violate our Constitution meant to protect us from you should you lose your collective minds at some point which, obviously, you are in the process of doing.

But therein lies the biggest problem. You have amassed such a massive amount of pointless data bits about each of us, that the idea of this being used to identify possible terrorists or terrorist activity is exposed as the fraud that it is. You aren’t tracking terrorists or their activity….you are tracking us.

I can actually understand your desire to control absolutely the very people you were charged with representing. After all, you have done much to betray us, to abuse your offices, and profited quite handsomely while doing so. More

Samsung Can Now Create Fake Videos of Your Face Using Single Images

PrepForThat - If SHTF Happens

 

Samsung AI Center’s Moscow research team have combined with Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology to publish a new document that shows how terrifying new software can be used to create 3-dimensional talking heads. The images are created via still images. The software’s creations are nothing short of stunning and scary. It can take a regular, common image of anyone and produce what appears to be a video communication from that person. Of course, the implications of such technology are unsettling. This means rival governments will be capable of serving up a completely fake video of politicians. It also means countries such as the United States could leverage such technology for its own purposes.

You need to read this!!  Please go HERE to see the full report and examples of this terrifying technology.  You know this will be put to no good use.  Just another weapon in their arsenal of weapons to use against all of humanity.

 

Victory: Oklahoma Moves to Enact Law Accommodating Religious Objections to Biometric Photo Requirement on Drivers’ Licenses

Leave a comment

RutherfordHeader_2This press release is also available at www.rutherford.org.

May 18, 2016

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — Spurred on by a lawsuit filed by attorneys for The Rutherford Institute, the Oklahoma State Legislature is poised to enact a law that protects individuals from being forced to violate their religious beliefs by submitting to a biometric photograph as a condition of obtaining a driver’s license.

The Institute’s lawsuit, filed on behalf of Kaye Beach, a Christian, against the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (DPS), asserts that requiring a biometric photo requirement as a condition of obtaining a driver’s license violates Oklahoma’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Unable to renew her driver’s license because of her objection to the biometric photo requirement, Beach has been deprived of common benefits and services that hinge on possessing a valid driver’s license, including the ability to acquire prescription medications, use her debit card, rent a hotel room or obtain a post office box. Upon being signed by the governor, the new law, S.B. 683, would require that the DPS issue a nonbiometric driver’s license to anyone raising a religious objection to the biometric photo and destroy any biometric images of the residents held by the DPS. In April 2016, Oklahoma’s Court of Civil Appeals reversed a lower court judgment against Beach and reinstated her lawsuit.

“Whether a person views a biometric ID card in the form of a driver’s license or other government-issued form of identification as the mark of the Beast or merely the long arm of Big Brother, the outcome remains the same: ultimate control by the government,” said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of Battlefield America: The War on the American People. “As Kaye Beach’s case makes clear, failing to have a biometric card can render you a non-person for all intents and purposes, with your ability to work, travel, buy, sell, access health care, and so on jeopardized.” More

REAL ID hidden in immigration reform bill

His administration has been caught red-handed spying on Associated Press reporters.

The IRS is just now admitting to spying on Tea Party and conservative groups — and accused of exacting political revenge on others.

Now you and I see, buried deep within the 800-plus pages of the so-called “Immigration Reform” Bill, a new biometric National ID scheme to open the door to more government intrusion the lives of every American . . .

You and I are supposed to believe neither the Obama administration nor career Washington, D.C. bureaucrats will abuse the massive new powers they crave.

But if recent history teaches us anything, it’s that they will.

That’s why I’m counting on you to

fill out your No National ID Petition IMMEDIATELY.

You see, President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have already announced “Immigration Reform” could be brought to the U.S. Senate floor in just a matter of weeks.

As I’ve said, without border security, any deal is dead on arrival.

But another — and perhaps even more dangerous — deal-breaker is the institution of a new National ID card.

Under the National ID scheme, the Department of Homeland Security would create a massive new photo database to include names, ages, and Social Security numbers of every single American.

The database would be tied to a biometric National ID card to include information like fingerprints and facial and retinal scans. More

There is a new component to the Connecticut and Florida Drivers Licenses – the much touted “Gold Star” two-tiered program which is partially Federally Funded, but all Federally Mandated. Starting October 3rd, residents of Connecticut will be required to provide as many as 6 forms of Identification to get this specially marked State ID (PDF). (No that xerox you took of your face does not count!)

There is an opt out, but it comes with an increasingly steep price:

DMV Commissioner Melody A. Currey said that without the gold star travelers will likely face greater scrutiny at airports and when entering federal buildings. Currey said the DMV is rolling out the new program now because Connecticut is on a six-year license renewal cycle and everyone needs to have a new license before 2017, when the federal regulations go into effect.

“This is a federally mandated program to improve security,” Currey said. “We live next door to New York City and after what happened there I think we need to assure our residents that we are doing everything we can to properly identify people.”

I find this humorous. What type of additional scrutiny are we talking about here? Already passengers  enjoy the “after dinner foreplay” without the obligatory 3 course cheap buffet to get into an airport, what’s next – a cavity search because we won’t wear carry the Federally Funded and Mandated yellow star?

Washington State Department of Agriculture is interested in your purchases as well.

Along with the “Watchlist Service” which apparently will become the “List of Lists” – one wonders who is watching the watchers?

Homeland Security plans to operate a massive new database of names, photos, birthdays and biometrics called Watchlist Service, duplicated from the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database which has proven not to be accurate many times in the past. DHS wants to exempt the Watchlist Service from Privacy Act provisions, meaning you will never know if you are wrongfully listed. Privacy groups worried about inaccurate info and mission creep have filed a protest, arguing the Privacy Act says DHS must notify subject of government surveillance. More

As Mommy and Daddy put little Timmy on the bus to school for his first day of Pre-Kindergarden, they were very confused. Why were those strangers running their hands down Timmy’s little backside? Why did they choose to fondle his “special places”? Oh well, they shrugged as they turned to go home and prepare for work, Timmy was in “Good Hands” even if it wasn’t a famous insurance company.

A TSA representative presented an overview of the administration’s Intermodal Security and Transportation Exercise Program (I-STEP) as a vital resource to help school districts and private bus companies develop table-top training to prevent criminal and terrorist attacks on and using school buses.

If the above seems unbelievable, consider the fact that 10 years ago the American Public would never have considered Transportation Safety to include “Inter-Underpant Screening (IUS)” (TM). Even the thought of some blue gloved stranger sliding their approved finger under the wire of feminine support devices seemed ridiculous. Now this is a “standard operating procedure”. Everyone knows we must be safe in our “intermodal transportation process”:

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.

The following is based off a speech given at Nullify Now! Orlando on 10-10-10

Isn’t it incredible that, despite all the historical evidence to the contrary, that anyone can still believe that the founders would’ve fought a long, cruel, bloody war just to exchange one central, overpowering government for another? And yet, these guys sitting on the courts want to define the limits of our freedom for the extension of greater government control. That is not the founders’ legacy. That’s not why we’re here today.

For these out of touch elitists, the Bill of Rights is just a historical curiosity – it’s quaint and doesn’t mean anything. But we know that the Bill of Rights is the very essence of state sovereignty. That’s why it was created, and that wasn’t lost on the founders.

In fact, at the North Carolina ratifying convention Samuel Spencer said, “It appears to me that the state governments are not sufficiently secured and that they may be swallowed up by the great mass of powers given to congress.” Was that prophetic? Just look what we have today… More

Arizona: Immigration status will be used to ram through a national ID

 Sonoran Alliance – A controversy seems to have come up among conservatives and pro-liberty activists in Arizona regarding Senator Pearce’s anti-illegal immigration bill, SB1070.

I received this nastygram on my windshield at last Thursday’s big teaparty in Tempe.

So, Naturally, I looked into it. 

I found that this amendment had been added to Russell Pearce’s anti-illegal immigration bill, SB1070.

“D.  Nothing in this act shall implement or shall be construed or interpreted to implement or establish the REAL ID act of 2005 (P.L. 109-13, division B; 119 Stat. 302) including the use of a radio frequency identification chip.”

However, I also found that this group, the Arizona Campaign for Liberty, is unconcerned about any REAL ID ramifications and specifically pointed out another  section of the bill: E. E1 and E2, in SB1070, which states:

    E. Except as provided in federal law, officials or agencies of this state and counties, cities, towns and other political subdivisions of this state may not be prohibited or in any way be restricted from sending, receiving or maintaining information relating to the immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual or exchanging that information with any other federal, state or local governmental entity for the following official purposes: More

More and more people want to repeal the recently passed healthcare bill. Rasmussen reports a 4-point rise in the last three weeks, bringing the number of Americans who want repeal to a whopping 58%. We think we are witnessing a fundamental change in the way Americans interact with their government. In years gone by citizens were submissive. When the politicians spoke, we listened. When they told us to jump, we asked them how high. When they proclaimed an issue settled, we meekly accepted their dictate. But not any longer. More

If this doctor is correct, we are in deep doo-doo.  Healthcare reform is actually the medical version of the Wall Street bailouts.  Insurance companies now have an unlimited supply of funds.  Pharmaceuticals get almost total immunity from liability.  Illegal immigrants get free healthcare and pay no taxes.  And we get taxed into the poorhouse so these people can get rich or get a free ride.  ___________________________

Senator  Bayh,
  
As a practicing  physician I have major concerns with the health  care bill before Congress. I actually have read  the bill and am shocked by the brazenness of the  government’s proposed involvement in the  patient-physician relationship. The very idea  that the government will dictate and ration  patient care is dangerous and certainly not  helpful in designing a health care system that  works for all. Every physician I work with  agrees that we need to fix our health care  system, but the proposed bills currently making  their way through congress will be a disaster if  passed.

Papers, please

 “Embedded in Senators Lindsey Graham’s and Chuck Schumer’s “Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill” is the groundwork for a National ID card — complete with biometric tracking technology — for everyone with a job in America.”

March 30, 2010

This is getting to be like a bad movie.

You know the ones where the villain, dead and buried more times than you can count, somehow mysteriously reappears in a place you don’t expect him?

Well, here comes… a new fight over a biometric national ID card — and if you don’t have the card, you can’t work.

Right now, freedom-stealing statists Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), banding together with other statists from both parties, are scheming to sneak a massive power grab into a new “immigration reform” bill. More

OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma lawmaker is calling a piece of legislation under consideration in the U.S. Congress a “big brother, big government bill.” The Pass I.D. Act calls for standardizing driver’s licenses across the country, but State Representative Paul Wesselhoft says the bill is an invasion of privacy.

“I think it’s big brother at its worst. I know the motive behind it is to curb illegal immigration and other security issues but I think it’s a violation of our 4th Amendment,” says Rep. Wesselhoft (R-Moore).

South Dakota Anti-Raw-Milk “Pogrom”

“South Dakota Raw Milk Producers vs Big Government State of South Dakota Initiates “Pogrom” Of Economic Genocide Against Small Farm Raw Milk Producers

By Richard Boyden

Small farm raw milk producers are being targeted by the state of South Dakota for criminal prosecution, incarceration, and destruction of their businesses if they do not cease to produce and market raw milk according to the “new rule” proposals being presented for implementation by the Dairy Division of the State of South Dakota. What is shared below is a short overview the oppressive format the state of South Dakota is preparing for small farm raw milk producers.

I decided to write this commentary after the deadline set by the State of South Dakota was past for receiving letters of support for raw milk small farm producers who are being targeted with “rule changes” and “laws” that are formulated to put them out of business. Why? For three reasons.

One. When the “raw milk” hearing was held in Pierre on November 17, there was only a ten day window given to file complaints and 10 days is not enough time for the supporters of raw milk, the small farm producers of, and those who chose to drink raw milk to even begin to get the word out state wide let alone nation wide. Not only that, the timing of the hearing was deliberately set to fall on the Thanksgiving Holiday week so as to make it extremely difficult for support to garnered.

Two. I wanted the rest of America and the world to know exactly what the hidden agenda of the State of South Dakota really is, and what it is proposing to do to raw milk producers and how this will affect those citizens who prefer raw milk over pasteurized.

Three. To expose who is really behind this criminal pogrom and how it affects our constitutional rights as American citizens.

I call this proposed new law targeting raw milk producers a pogrom. If you are familiar with the history of Stalinist Russia, then you will see parallels found in this definition with what the Agricultural Department of the state of South Dakota is proposing to do to small farm producers of raw milk in the name of “health and safety”….” Read More at the BOVINE

MOU #3

Greetings:

Consider this a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to all members of the Senate, all members of the House, and to President Obama.  I am sure you are fully aware of the intent and implications of MOUs, as each of you, in one way or another, uses them to establish the outlining of agreements between yourselves, collectively or individually, concerning the agreements you have made with individuals acting as state’s representatives or agencies; generally to avoid Constitutional prohibitions on your intended actions and in avoidance of the Constitution.  I am using it in quite another fashion as you will see in the following text.

For you, MOUs are the terms and agreements of what, are in fact the first step in contractual agreements. MOUs are most often accompanied by cooperative agreements and funding (bribes) to implement what generally turns out to be egregious assaults to civil rights and liberties to the benefit of the federal government, linked so inextricably to corporate interests and global agreements.

Consider what follows a Memorandum of Understanding between me, Marti J. Oakley, and all of you, collectively cited in the above paragraph. More

Why healthcare reform is not about quality or access

Marti Oakley (c) 2009

In a recent article, I reported the underlying themes and problems with the healthcare reform proposal.  Basically, that it had nothing to do with reform other than establishing a backdoor REAL ID.  Otherwise, the entire proposal is nothing more than a directive on how you can access care, what care you can access and if and how you would qualify and who is going to get crowned the “czar”. 

Also included in this legislative slight of hand is the “public option”.  Sounds good doesn’t it?  And you can keep your private insurance if you want to.  Well, of course you can!

Here’s the deal. If your employer decides he doesn’t want to offer insurance to his employee’s, he will have to pay a fine (tax) which as it turns out will be only a fraction of what it is costing him to offer you that insurance.  What do you think he will do?  How long do you think it will take your employer to realize he could make a lot more profit if he dropped your health coverage? 

Where does this leave you?  Looking for that “public option”, I would think.  Both public and private insurance will be managed by the same insurance companies whose former employees reported to the senate committee hearing that they were paid to deny legitimate claims; to avoid paying claims and were paid bonuses to do so.  But the governments remedy is to put them in charge of these two options.  More

REAL ID, the PASS Act, and Audit the Fed

Quote of the Day: “Those who suppress freedom always do so in the name of law and order.” — John V. Lindsay

Subject: REAL ID, the PASS Act, and Audit the Fed

The people of Iran are risking their lives, and in some cases losing them, in a bid to gain their freedom. We need not risk so much to restore and retain our freedom, but for that to remain true we must vigorously use our right to petition our government for a redress of grievances. This means…

We must relentlessly increase our pressure, telling Congress to obey the Constitution, and to undo the constitutional violations they’ve already committed. Our pressure must keep increasing until the politicians demonstrate their submission to the Constitution. To make that happen…

We must apply more pressure each month than we did the previous month. We’re now nearing the end of June. To make sure we exceed the 36,512 messages we sent last month we’re going to ask you to hit Congress on two issues today, the REAL ID Act and Congressman Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed bill.

The de facto national ID card that the REAL ID Act would create, seems to be going nowhere. The people don’t want it, and 25 states are refusing to impose it. This has been a significant victory for the idea that the people can pressure their government into submission. But… More

The PASS Act filed Monday is posing as part of the repeal effort of the expiring Real ID Act. The succession of this legislation comes on the heels of DHS exchange, giving similar legislation a second genesis.  

The Real ID will be repealed in its entirety, but only upon the condition it is replaced with a similar legislation, such as the PASS Act.


The Center for Democracy and Technology cited a a few of the comparisons and improvements. The more important question is how does passing another law, repeal the Real ID Act? According to the CDT, the Real ID Act is expected to “fade away” while the PASS Act takes its place. 

 THOSE IN FAVOR
The National Conference of State Legislatures and the National Governors Association, mid-level players between the federal mandate and the masses, have commended the legislative the PASS Act as suitable substitute. More

Bribery: Co-operative Agreements funding

Whenever some unelected bureaucracy is attempting to circumvent state or federal constitutional protections and rights, it is always done using some form of [co-operative agreement].  What this amounts to is a bribe paid to state officials.  Usually these agencies, answerable to no one….(they all have rule-making (law-making) capabilities) are intending to pass laws which will violate civil liberties.  The money, usually in the millions, is used to coerce elected officials at the state level into passing what would otherwise be untenable.  More

Applied DNA Sciences Collaborates with Government to Create DNA-Based Real ID

Forget about RFID. Oh, it will probably be used, also, but the Real ID cards the government is intent upon forcing us to have in order to drive a car, board a plane or enter a building paid for with our tax dollars may very well not even need RFID in order to positively identify each of  us.

A company called Applied DNA Sciences, located in Stony Brook, New York, announced on June 9, 2009 that it has, in collaboration with “a world leader in security laminated materials,” validated its proprietary SigNature DNA into “laminates typically used in travel documents, credit cards, drivers licenses and other government issued identification cards.”

So, the bottom line is that all they will need is a sample of your DNA and this can be laminated right into the Real ID card in such a way that your unique DNA sequence can be read by any card reader. More

Minnesota rejects REAL ID

Minnesota Rejects Real ID Act Of 2005
23 States Push Back Against Unfunded Mandate To Create National ID

WASHINGTON – May 18 -� Minnesota Governor Timothy Pawlenty signed legislation on Saturday that prohibits his administration from turning the state driver’s license into a national identity card and from imposing new burdens on taxpayers, citizens, immigrants and state government. The state legislature overwhelmingly endorsed the bill with a unanimous House vote and a 64-1 vote in the Senate. Minnesota becomes the 23rd state to reject the Real ID Act of 2005, raising the question of why Congress has not repealed the law.

“23 states have now sent a clear message to Washington that they will not submit to wrongheaded federal mandates that waste state tax dollars and put privacy at risk,” said Christopher Calabrese, Counsel of the ACLU Technology & Liberty Program. “Congress should take notice and repeal the Real ID Act so that effective driver’s license security policy can be developed.”

As part of creating a national identification card, the Real ID Act of 2005 also mandates that states hold all Americans’ private information in a single database that is accessible to federal and state officials – the cost and security of which is unknown. Consequently, the National Governors Association and the National Conference of State Legislatures have expressed strong opposition to the Real ID Act.

Since its enactment – as evident by the rejection of 23 states — Real ID has faced significant resistance on the state level. During her January confirmation hearing, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano called for a review of Real ID, saying the states were not consulted enough in its creation and that the initiative is a fiscal burden on the states. Before heading up DHS, Napolitano was Governor of Arizona, where she enacted legislation prohibiting her state from complying with the requirements of Real ID.

Because Real IDs require significantly more background information than a driver’s license, privacy experts fear that the government will now have access to an unprecedented amount of highly sensitive information about citizens and that there will be an exponential rise in identity theft from the database where the information is stored.

Fusion Centers, REAL ID and the push for total surveillance

Leave a comment

AUSTIN – The 5-11 Campaign, a grassroots privacy organization opposed to the federal ID, declared 30 days of vigilance over identity legislation with connections to Information Analysis Centers (IAC), or what is now commonly known as Fusion Centers.

“Based on reports that fusion centers are targeting 3rd party voters and those who pose Constitutional challenges to the Department of Homeland Security’s intelligence gathering efforts we are aggressively opposing any legislation that would secure our private information for national to international data aggregation. This may include voter ID. No one should be profiled or targeted based on an electronic record of how they voted. A routine intelligence seizure based on a national security directive, such as the one issued in Missouri, would lead to arbitrary and reckless disregard for our privacy and personal sovereignty,” says Sheila Dean, President of the 5-11 Campaign.

This legislation observed for action during the vigil includes opposition to HB 4036. The Texas bill calls for compliance with the federal ID mandate. American license information, social security number and citizenship documents may be stored and shared with customs through an insecure fusion center. Other legislations included during the month long vigil touch upon DNA databases, animal information systems, drivers licenses, identity cards and other relevant attributions of private identity.

Last Monday (3/30), the Public Safety Committee heard testimony which included challenges to existing efforts to gain public consent over fusion center storage of license or ID card information. Many objections were raised over the call for facial recognition technology, among other regulations in the Real ID Act of 2005. Texas’ federal Real ID extension for compliance expires December 31, 2009.

Public Safety committee members are concerned about Texans being refused passage into federal buildings and airports based on Texas federal extension status. According to staffers, the DHS has been unclear about the extension standards until now with one exception; the inclusion of citizenship status on licenses.

“When an license to operate a motor vehicle becomes a de facto citizenship document, it becomes a national ID card. We are opposed to a national ID. We hope the 81st legislature will stand on the 10th Amendement and reject the whole Act,” said Dean.

Incomplete Networks & Intelligence Aggregation

The push to expand identity databases nationally are suffering from a big brother reputation, networking inadequacies and insufficient funds.

According to a report released last month from the DHS Inspector General, fusion centers across the U.S. are inadequately networked, non-existent or vastly underfunded to comply with the federal mandate for identity storage and national identity sharing.


“DHS did not provide timely and specific guidance on how REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses and identification cards must be marked, best practices for the physical security of facilities, or information on the systems that will be used for verifying applicant documentation. To achieve full compliance with REAL ID standards by 2011, states must connect with electronic verification systems to verify identification documents. Several of the systems needed do not yet exist. Specifically, 18 of 19 states, or 95%, reported that available grant funding was insufficient. Several states referred to the amount received as a “drop in the bucket.” – DHS INSPECTOR GENERAL REPORT

Utah House prohibits state from complying with REAL ID

Last month, the Utah House voted 68-6 to prohibit state officials from complying with REAL ID. A couple dozen states have passed resolutions protesting the federal Act, but the Utah law would have more teeth. If more states join, we might see a real confrontation with national policy.

The Battle In The States: Freedom Vs Protection

Leave a comment

Mark Lerner and Tom DeWeese put together this piece; which can be found at Tom DeWeese, President of American Policy Center  www.americanpolicy.org <  

 

Mark Lerner, Director, Stop Real ID Coalition   www.stoprealidcoalition.com <   http://www.stoprealidcoalition.com

Please pass this along to those you know.

Across the nation, state legislatures are struggling to take back their Constitutional rights as they also seek ways to protect us from outside threats. This has led to some near schizophrenic legislative sessions with laws swinging widely from left to right.

Making it more difficult to get a handle on the situation is the fact that there has been an outgrowth of near “rabid”

anti-immigration groups that have sprung up demanding near-Hitler-style tactics to “fix” the problem. While the situation is certainly serious and demands action, these groups openly admit that they are willing to surrender their liberties if that is what it takes to end illegal immigration. They may deeply regret that cavalier dismissal of liberty. Once lost, it is rarely regained.

To address these issues, three very distinct, but widely variant legislative actions have appeared in the states.

First, legislation dealing with protecting the integrity of the Tenth Amendment and state sovereignty has been introduced across the nation, passing in at least 21 states. The states are reacting to the frightening growth of the federal government through anti-terrorist legislation such as the Patriot Act and Real ID, as well as the outrageous spending included in the bailout and stimulus bills.

Second, to address the illegal immigration issue, legislation in many states would provide state law enforcement with the ability to share information through direct electronic access. Many law-enforcement agencies are eagerly supporting such legislation. Yet, this type of legislation clearly contradicts the intent of the states sovereignty effort.

Third, again racing back to the other side to protect personal privacy from federal surveillance, there is legislation introduced to prohibit the collection of biometric samples/data, social security numbers and the use of RFID chips in state driver’s licenses.

One might ask, what do these pieces of legislation have to do with one another? They each go to the heart of a battle being waged across our country to decide how much Constitutional power the federal government has to collect, retain and share the personal information of each citizen, and how much power it has to force states to provide it?

Tenth Amendment legislation is exactly what the name implies

that states have Constitutionally-guaranteed rights and powers. It puts the federal government on notice that states will not act as its surrogates. The legislation unequivocally tells the federal government that its power comes from the citizens and the states and that federal powers are limited and defined rather than unlimited and arbitrary.*Fusion Centers*

As for those patriots who believe the illegal immigration is so dire that liberty should be thrown on the bonfire, perhaps they need to better understand what they are demanding.

Legislation introduced in several state legislatures, and currently in debate, allows state and local law-enforcement agencies to have direct access to one another’s databases. Some of the anti-immigration patriots might see it is as prudent legislation until one takes a closer look.

Most states now have Fusion Centers. Fusion Centers were originally intended to allow local and state law-enforcement to work alongside federal officers so that activity suspected of being terrorist related could be identified and responded to by all three law enforcement entities in a coordinated manner. Fusion Centers have representatives of all three working side-by-side in one office.

Fusion Centers are funded primarily by the federal government. Some believe them to be an effective tool to fight terrorism with little that one could find objectionable. The problem is, Fusion Centers have overstepped their intended purpose. This is typical when dealing with the issue of technology and invasive databases. Mission creep is just too easy.

In state after state we see Fusion Centers focusing on /all /suspected criminal activity, including misdemeanors. Some would ask you to believe that the mountain of information about citizens being accumulated actually stays within the borders of a state unless a citizen is suspected of terrorist activity. However, the Fusion Center in Oklahoma has been directed to develop procedures for the sharing of information with the FBI and DHS.

This means that direct electronic access is not limited to just state law enforcement agencies and departments. Since local, state and federal authorities are working together, there is no plausible reason to believe federal law enforcement will not gain access to all information a state law enforcement or local law enforcement authority would have.
