Rep. Tom McClintock’s Response to Pres. Calderon

Congressman Tom McClintock (R-CA) gave an eloquent and astute response to Pres. Calderon’s rude interference in a sovereign nation’s domestic issues while speaking to a joint session of Congress.

Congressman Tom McClintock Representing The 4th District of California
M. Speaker:

I rise to take strong exception to the speech of the President of Mexico while in this chamber today.

The Mexican government has made it very clear for many years that it holds American sovereignty in contempt and President Calderons behavior as a guest of the Congress confirms and underscores this attitude.

It is highly inappropriate for the President of Mexico to lecture Americans on American immigration policy, just as it would be for Americans to lecture Mexico on its laws.

Fascist In Charge: Nancy Pelosi Quietly Slides DNA Collection Bill Past House

Fascist In Charge: Nancy Pelosi Quietly Slides DNA Collection Bill Past House

Fascist-In-Charge Nancy Pelosi has used a procedural move to very quietly pass DNA collection legislation that, on any level, violates privacy because of the forced collection from arrestees; not convicted felons.

I had a commenter today try to say that equating Obama’s new interrogation teams to the Gestapo was silly, and he/she implied I was pretty much clueless as to what the Gestapo actually was.

Any given governmental action, in and of itself, might not raise any patriotic alarms, but when they have been placed one right after another over the past ten years, it’s hard not to see the noose tightening.

Let’s add this domino, shall we?  You tell me that this isn’t the government tagging it’s property, and that they don’t consider us all to be criminals that have not yet been caught.

(All emphasis from this point on is mine)

House votes to expand national DNA arrest database

Millions of Americans arrested for but not convicted of crimes will likely have their DNA forcibly extracted and added to a national database, according to a bill approved by the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday.  (Guilty before being proven innocent?)

By a 357 to 32 vote, the House approved legislation that will pay state governments to require DNA samples, which could mean drawing blood with a needle, from adults “arrested for” certain serious crimes. Not one Democrat voted against the database measure, which would hand out about $75 million to states that agree to make such testing mandatory.

Islamic Free Speech Attack: Un-indicted Co-Conspirator, Hamas-Tied CAIR Demands Tennessee Tea Party Convention Cancel Pamela Geller

Look at this. Un-indicted co-conspirator, terror-tied CAIR is trying to get good, decent Americans in the Tennessee Tea Party to crush free speech by dropping me from the Tea Party convention this weekend. Contact them and let them know what you think.

This is all about the mosque. And I spoke the truth here. The grand jihadist Muslim Brotherhood at CAIR know what that means. It will be the icon, the rally call for every devout Muslim and jihadist across the world. They must have their symbol of conquest.

Who stands with me? Who is coming to Tennessee to stand for our unalienable rights endowed by G-d? Freedom of speech is the line in the sand. Once we lose that, the war is over. This is the battle, the information battle space. Guns, bombs, bloodshed are the results of what happens in the war of ideas.

Of course the Muslim Brotherhood CAIR wants to shut me up. Truth begets hatred.

CAIR Asks Tenn. Tea Party to Drop Anti-Islam Speaker CAIR PRESS RELEASE

WASHINGTON, May 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on the organizers of the inaugural Tennessee Tea Party Convention to be held this weekend in Gatlinburg to drop an anti-Islam speaker who claims that “Hitler and the Nazis were inspired by Islam” and that Islam “mandates” lies and deception.

The Climate Of Fear Marches On

The Climate Of Fear Marches On

When the global progressives in the District of Criminals passed the Patriot Act without reading it, (setting the precedent which successive congresses have used to their advantage and our loss), I knew we were going down the dark path of warrant-less wiretapping, being held indefinitely without charges, loss of freedoms and liberties; in essence – the prelude to totalitarian government.   This Climate of Fear is a quiet terrorism perpetrated against Americans by the globalists, and most people fell for it in the name of ‘security’.

The second worst President in history (after Obama-The-America-Hater) put the framework in place to build the Climate of Fear that now pervades our country.  Most Americans I know watch what they say and what they write on the internet because once something hits the internet, it is eternal.

The media has abdicated their responsibility to keep the politicians and corporations accountable, and because we are Americans, the niche is being filled with citizen journalists and bloggers.  The globalists cannot allow this to continue.

Is anyone surprised that a republican AG is going after bloggers that have been critical of his use of grand juries through their Twitter accounts?  Is anyone surprised that Twitter officials are being threatened with arrest if they don’t comply?

Stop being shocked folks and get up to speed.  It is only a Climate of Fear if you allow it.  For instance, if 50,000 people show up to take pictures of a Federal Reserve Building — nobody is going to stop you or arrest you — because there are way more of us than there are of them.

AG Corbett Subpoenas Twitter to Name Bloggers

Harrisburg, Pa. – The state attorney general’s office has issued a subpoena threatening officials of the social networking service Twitter with arrest unless they reveal the names of two bloggers who have been critical of Attorney General Tom Corbett and his public corruption investigation.

The subpoena orders Twitter’s custodian of records to provide “any and all subscriber information” pertaining to the accounts “bfbarbie” and “CasablancaPA,” including name, address, contact information, creation date, and Internet protocol address.

The accounts have criticized Corbett’s use of grand juries, suggesting he used the investigations for political gain and to go after political opponents.

The Twitter representative was supposed to appear before the statewide investigating grand jury on May 14 to “give evidence regarding alleged violations of the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.” The court document does not specify what crime is being investigated. (emphasis mine)

The subpoena, issued May 6, further states that failure to attend may result in an arrest warrant for contempt of court. It is not clear whether Twitter has turned over the information.

Vic Walczak of the American Civil Liberties Union told Pittsburgh’s WTAE-TV that the court action “raises grave concerns about abuse of the grand jury process to retaliate against political critics and opponents.” He said Americans “have a right to criticize government officials and to do so anonymously.”

Corbett, who won the Republican nomination for governor Tuesday night, told the television station that he doesn’t have any problem with people criticizing him on Twitter. He refused to discuss the nature of the subpoena, however, stating that the investigation prevents him from discussing the matter.

Everybody needs to follow the example of Lt. Col. Allen West who has stated that he absolutely cannot stand Barack Obama. I loathe and detest the Man-Who-Thinks-He-Can-Destroy-America.

DHS Attempts To Take Brian Rainville’s Vermont Farm

IT’S YOUR LAND:Fighting for the Family Farm

“It’s a perverse use of eminent domain,” says Brian Rainville. “There is no public good here.”

He stood on a green field, filled with alfalfa and grass, on the gentle rolling hills of his family’s Franklin, Vermont farm… just steps from the Canadian border. He says the barn dates back to 1800, and the land is on the national registry of historic places. But Brian’s family, who have been dairy farmers here since 1946, may not have the land much longer. The United States Government says it needs 4.9 acres of the family’s property to help protect national security.

The Rainville farm sits on the Morses Line border crossing, a sparsely used two lane blacktop with an aging Customs and Border Protection building that the Department of Homeland Security wants to modernize and expand. The agency plans to use stimulus funds to build a new $8 million dollar, multi-lane complex, and says it needs the nearly five acres of the Rainville’s farmland to complete it.

The Rainvilles say the project will put their farm out of business. With the farm losing money, every inch of land is needed, especially the land they use to grow hay to support their cows for the production of milk.

“We are in a good fight here,” says Brian, “This has been a good living for three generations. We are only the third family in 200 years to own the property, and the thought that our own government is going to destroy us! This has been our American dream for a century, it can’t end that way,” he says sadly.

Glenn Beck, 5.20.2010: CRIME, INC., Bankers, SEIU, And Shorebank (UPDATED: SEIU Escorted By Police To Baer’s Home)

Glenn covers the real story of SEIU thugs surrounding the property of Gregory Baer, deputy counsel for BofA on Sunday, 5.16.2010. It has been reported that there was between 500 and 700 trespassers on Baer’s property while he was away with one child at a baseball game. When the liberal left, mannerless, brain-dead Obamazombies showed up at his property, Baer’s fourteen year old son locked himself in the bathroom and called his father. When Baer arrived home, he called the police who refused to come to his house because they did not want the situation to escalate. Now where did we leave those frakkin’ paramilitary SWAT Teams?  Which police dept. are Greg Baer and his neighbors paying for?

Glenn then goes onto explain the story of Shorebank and Obama (after the video).  You may want to hit this Socialism Page to understand the intricate web that Glenn is trying to explain.

Lt. Col. Allen West On Radical Islamic Terrorists, Obama, & Illegal Immigration(Video)

Want to hear what is really happening in our country with radical islamic terrorists, their camps inside our borders, terrorists learning spanish, illegal immigration?  How about the fact that Lt. Col. West is the first person I have heard say out loud that he cannot stand Obama.  …three…two…one…the calls of ‘seditious speech’ will being coming from the left any second now.

See our government wants to castigate us as the enemy. Our President went down and said that the problem is here in the United States of America. Well, you know, let’s face it. Wherever he goes he’s going to apologize for this country. I can’t stand the guy. I absolutely can’t stand him.

And never forget this, my fellow Americans, in 1930 there was a gentleman in Germany that took away private gun ownership, and you know what happened to that population.  You must be well informed and well armed because this government that we have right now is a tyrannical government, and it starts with this issue with illegal immigration.

Three Republicans Vote For Cloture On The Senate Financial Bill (UPDATED: Video)

Three Republicans Vote For Cloture On The Senate Financial Bill (UPDATED: Video)

Are you ready for a new federal government agency (Office Of Financial Research) under the direction of Treasury that has a $500 BILLION DOLLAR YEARLY BUDGET, can invest appropriations it is not using, and the profits are no longer your money? Are you ready for every single monetary transaction you make to be in a government database?

You can thank Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, and Scott Brown.

Senate Clears Way for Final Vote on Financial Bill

WASHINGTON—U.S. senators took a major step toward passage of a broad revamp of U.S. financial markets Thursday as Democratic leaders were able to secure support from both sides of the aisle to put a close to debate.

The Senate voted, 60-40, to limit debate on legislation that would change the way mortgages and credit cards are regulated, financial firms interact with regulators and boost the government’s ability to deal with systemwide failures. A handful of Republicans voted with Democrats to invoke what is known in the Senate as “cloture.”

The vote puts a hard cap on the amount of time the Senate has to debate the 1,500-plus page piece of legislation, and clears the way for the Senate to take a final vote on the measure as soon as Thursday evening. Senate Democrats would need to clear a handful of procedural hurdles for that to occur, but leadership was discussing the possibility, according to several congressional aides.

This is the massive hidden problem that no one in the Beltway is talking about; Republicans included:

I am currently reading this bill and wanted to drop an interesting tidbit on you. For those interested in reading the 114 page Manager’s Amendment, go here. I am only a couple hundred pages into this POS but starting on page 60, a new government office is to be established. The “Office Of Financial Research” will be part of the Treasury, and will have a Director appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. This office will also have a data collection center to keep track of all financial and nonbank financial institutions so as to be able to report to Congress on companies that ‘threaten’ the economy. It is unclear how big or how many new government employees this office will create, but considering how events are unfolding now with Obamacare, I’m assuming pretty large.

The interesting tidbit pertains to the Financial Research Fund that is to be established and the ability of the Office that is providing Congress with reports to invest monies they aren’t using. Let me know if you think that’s a conflict of interest, and if you would like to know exactly how much money that is?

“Funds obtained by, transferred to, or credited to the Financial Research Fund shall be immediately available to the Office, and shall remain available until expended, to pay the expenses of the Office in carrying out the duties and responsibilities of the Office.”

“Shall not be construed to be Government Funds…”. Whose money is it then?

Obama’s Gestapo Has Arrived

We don’t trust Obama, this administration, DHS, or Congress to do their jobs.  An expected event has now arrived.

From Reuters:

Obama starts deploying interrogation teams

(Reuters) – The Obama administration has started using special law enforcement and intelligence teams to interrogate suspected militants in the United States and abroad, including the Pakistani-American arrested in the Times Square bombing plot, a top official said on Tuesday.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced the formation of the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group (HIG) in August and gave the reins to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, replacing the Central Intelligence Agency that did have the lead role in intelligence interrogations.

The program calls for the deployment of Mobile Interrogation Teams, made up of specialists from across the law enforcement and intelligence community, to question important detainees, whether they are in U.S. custody or in the custody of a foreign government.

“There have been a number of deployments of these Mobile Interrogation Teams to include for the Faisal Shahzad case,” said John Brennan, assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism.

Shahzad, a U.S. citizen born in Pakistan, is charged with trying to set off a crude car bomb in New York’s crowded Times Square on May 1. Prosecutors say he has provided valuable intelligence to investigators, who believe he was helped by the Pakistani Taliban movement.

Brennan declined to say whether the mobile teams have also been used in interrogations of the Afghan Taliban’s No. 2 leader, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, who was captured in the Pakistani city of Karachi in January in a joint operation by the CIA and Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence spy agency.

Baradar is in Pakistan’s custody.

The HIG is the product of executive orders issued by President Barack Obama shortly after he took office in January 2009. The orders banned harsh interrogation methods put in place by his predecessor, President George W. Bush, and moved to close the Guantanamo Bay prison camp in Cuba along with secret CIA detention facilities.

Republicans in Congress have sharply criticized the Obama administration’s decision to send suspected militants to criminal courts rather than military tribunals, arguing that important intelligence is lost by cutting short interrogations.

‘OPTIMIZE INTELLIGENCE COLLECTION’

Officials said the CIA plays a major part in the HIG’s activities.

In the United States, the CIA generally provides “subject matter experts with deep knowledge of the individual detainee” or of “the terrorist network in which he operates — its leaders, its methods, the countries from which he comes or in which he operates.”

Overseas, the CIA’s main role is to gain access to the detainee for questioning.

While there is no legal prohibition against CIA personnel participating in questioning a detainee in the United States, an administration official said “our practice so far and historically has been to leave the questioning to the FBI interrogators and for the CIA to provide subject matter experts outside the room, if you will.”

“The purpose … is to ensure that we optimize intelligence collection,” an Obama administration official said.

Dr. Rand Paul’s Candidacy Is The Bullseye

The liberal left, tool of the progressive globalists, has found their “one size fits all” attack; the race card. For over a year, tea party patriots have had the ‘honor’ of being called racists at every turn, and with Dr. Paul’s win Tuesday night, his candidacy is the bullseye because of his Constitutional stance and his Tea Party backing.  Dr. Rand Paul is now the poster child for the Tea Party Movement as Scott Brown only could hope for in his dreams.

Before you get all bent out of shape, remember what the federal government has actually been charged with doing, and how far off the reservation the administrations of the past 120 years have gone.  Dr. Paul isn’t a racist, the left just wants to paint the Tea Parties in that light in hopes of stopping the electoral bleeding to come.
