Bill Whittle giving a virtual presidential speech on the shift from the industrial age to the information age and why it will cause the collapse of our overreaching and bloated federal government, immigration, American Sovereignty, and other important concepts. Well worth the listen.
It’s time for every single alphabet agency that is writing the rules and laws around our legislative branch (the peoples’ representatives) must be abolished.
The modern administrative state; we talk about this all the time, has power, resources and tenticles which boggle the mind. For example, in 2008, the small business administration estimated that annual regulatory compliance costs amount to 1.752trillion dollars a year or 11% of the gross domestic product. 11% of all the wealth created by the private economy; this is apart from taxation. Last year, the Obama administration issued new regulations costing 236 billion dollars. New EPA regulations alone resulted in 172 billion dollars of the 136 billion dollars last year. Last year, the Federal Register, the official federal publication documenting administrative rules and proposed rules exceeded 77,000 pages. Mark, where you getting this from? I did my own research, like always. In 2011 and 2010 federal registers were 81,247 pages and 81,405 pages long respectively.
Ladies and gentlemen, that’s a quarter million, excuse me, 250,000 pages of regulations in three years. A quarter of a million pages, pages! In 2012, the federal bureaucracy reportedly issued 212, just in one year, 212 economically significant federal rules; meaning each regulation was projected to impose over 100 million dollars in economic costs over a period of a year. In the last ten years, the issuance of economically significant rules has increased 108%.
That’s alot of rules, and what’s interesting is, if we take a year like 2011, we have federal regulatory agencies issued 3807 final rules; this has the impact of law – these rules. Congress passed and the president signed 81 laws. So in 2011, the legislative branch and the executive passed and signed 81 laws; the bureaucracy issued 3807 laws.
You know what this is ladies and gentlemen? This is not a constitutional republic. This is a federal government completely out of control.
Mark Levin – Purpose of the Constitution – May 28, 2013 – Full Show
Let’s start today’s round-robin of Nazi bullshit here:
Rep. Jim Bridenstine’s Recap of Obama Scandals:
Are you starting to understand the breadth and scope of the Fourth Reich yet? The techies and gamers have known about the surveillance for years; check out the timeline put together by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, found here (it goes back to 1975).
For all of those dumbasses (Hannity, Gibson, Limbaugh) that backed the Patriot Act and the changes to FISA when they were being shoved through congress, this is officially the chickens coming home to roost. Sean Hannity and John Gibson are shocked that the Bush and Obama administrations were spying on Americans and Rush Limbaugh believes that a coup is being attempted as we speak. I am calling bullshit on that Rush. The coup started in 1910 when the Federal Reserve was created to suck the lifeblood of the nation and the IRS was created as their bagmen. According to our now almost dead Constitution, no man was to be taxed on his labor. How many non-low-information voters understand that concept Rush? But back to the point at hand, the coup was finalized when the Patriot Act, FISA, and the jackbooted Department of Homeland Security were put in place, and the real reason behind the data mining (IMHO) is to collect information on American Patriots, keep track of the growing unrest, and track who the leaders are. It is also the reason for the unprecedented buildup of munitions of the DHS, the IRS and the Treasury’s Office of Financial Research surveillance, and God-knows-what-else!! The massive surveillance of Americans all supposedly started in 2007. Pretty convenient when the economy started to hit the skids that year and has never recovered (don’t you dare tell me that we are recovering when we are now $17 Trillion in debt and there are more people receiving a government handout than are paying into the system). These sons-of-bitches needed to have this apparatus in place to identify the resistance to their planned collapse of our economy and the sheer devastation to Americans and their communities when 50% of the population goes off the rails and riots when their Obamaphones and debit cards don’t work anymore.
How do we know it’s a coup? Because, just like Hitler and the Third Reich, they are just ‘doing it’ and we are sitting by watching it happen…
Civil liberties lawyers trying to hold the administration to account through the courts for its surveillance of phone calls and emails of American citizens have been repeatedly stymied by the government’s recourse to the “military and state secrets privilege”. The precedent, rarely used but devastating in its legal impact, allows the government to claim that it cannot be submitted to judicial oversight because to do so it would have to compromise national security.
Ahahahahahahahahahah……we can do anything we want to the American people…..just watch us.
From Politico Breaking News excerpts in my mailbox:

The White House is defending itself against charges it secretly obtained records for Verizon phone calls made in the United States, arguing that the policy — first reported by Britain’s Guardian newspaper last night — is a vital tool in monitoring terrorists and has the approval of “all three branches of government,” according to a senior administration official. The order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court authorizes the National Security Agency to collect phone numbers but “does not allow the government to listen in on anyone’s telephone calls” unless the NSA makes a separate request, the official said.
It has the approval of all three branches of government….the very same government that we can no longer trust and which has completely shattered the ‘Rule of Law’ (google Jon Corzine or NDAA if you don’t believe me).
Obama, If You Can’t Trust Us, We’re Going To Have Some Problems:
Oh we have some major problems Mr. Globalist Talking Head Puppet.
Trust an executive branch that that has a hit list of Americans, that uses NDAA to hold Americans indefinitely without charges, signs executive orders for everything they can’t shove through congress, who spies on Americans, who allows Americans to die (Fast and Furious, Benghazi), and has put us $17 Trillion Dollars In Debt? Is this an executive branch or a dictatorship?
Trust a legislative branch that continues to VOTE AGAINST the Constitution, Americans’ wishes, their best interests (NDAA, FISA, Patriot Act, Obamacare, Amnesty, Debt Limit Hikes, Office Of Financial Research, etc., etc., etc.), continues to create alphabet agencies like DHS and spends our money in every single country that has their hand out. Are these truly the peoples’ representatives or are they lackeys of a globalist run dictatorship?
Trust a judicial branch that allowed Barack Obama to become president and believes the mandate in Obamacare is Constitutional? Are these real judges or are they rubberstamps for a dictator and a criminal enterprise unlike anything ever seen in history?
ARE YOU FREAKIN’ KIDDING ME?

The top two leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee said today that the widespread monitoring of phone records revealed by Wednesday’s Guardian report has been going on for years and that Congress is regularly briefed about it.
Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Saxby Chambliss also defended the National Security Agency’s request to Verizon for all the metadata about phone calls made within the U.S. and from the U.S. to other countries.
“As far as I know, this is the exact three-month renewal of what has been in place for the past seven years,” Feinstein asid. “This renewal is carried out by the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court] under the business records section of the Patriot Act. Therefore it is lawful. It has been briefed to Congress.”
Added Chambliss: “This is nothing new. This has been going on for seven years … every member of the United States Senate has been advised of this. To my knowledge there has not been any citizen who has registered a complaint. It has proved meritorious because we have collected significant information on bad guys, but only on bad guys, over the years.”
It’s been going on for years and we are just learning about it and the secret surveillance court now, AND THAT MAKES IT OKAY BECAUSE THE DISTRICT OF CRIMINALS SAYS IT’S LEGAL? Chambliss, you dumb, corrupt, son-of-bitch; having a secret court and data mining American citizen’s private information IS NOT OKAY, IS NOT CONSTITUTIONAL, AND IS GROUNDS FOR TREASON. Just because you say it’s legal and the UNCONSTITUTIONAL PATRIOT ACT SAYS IT’S LEGAL doesn’t make it so you freakin’ open-mouthed breathing lackey.

Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that the Obama administration has kept Congress fully informed about a program that, according to a court order leaked Wednesday, gathers data on millions of Americans’ phone use.
“Members of Congress shave been fully briefed as these issues, these matters have been underway,” Holder said at a Senate hearing.
Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) expressed her doubts. “This ‘fully briefed’ is something that drives us up the wall….’Fully briefed’ doesn’t mean we know what’s going on,” she said, urging a classified hearing or briefing that all Senators could attend.
Sen. Ron Kirk (R-Ill.) added that he was concerned that data on calls by members of Congress and Supreme Court justices could have been swept up in the program. Holder said there was “no intention … to spy on members of Congress, to spy on members of the Supreme Court.”
Holder said he would be willing to provide more details in a closed hearing.
Ron Kirk is concerned that Congress and the Supremes’ ended up in the pen with the rest of the corporate owned moos? God Friggin Forbid! And Holder is willing to do a CLOSED HEARING after we just learned the NSA is collecting unprecedented amounts of data WITHOUT PROBABLE CAUSE?
ARE YOU F%^$@!’ KIDDING ME?
June 6th, 2013
Rep. Mike Rogers, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said today that phone records obtained by the National Security Agency “thwarted” a domestic terrorism plot “in the last few years.” His committee is working to declassify information on the plot, he said.
“Within the last few years, this program was used to stop a terrorist attack in the United States,” Rogers said. “We know that. It’s important. It fills in a little seam that we have, and it’s used to make sure that there’s not an international nexus to any terrorism event that they may believe is ongoing in the United States.”
He added: “In that regard, it is a very valuable thing. It is legal.”
Once again, a member of the District of Criminals telling you that something is legal. Lovely, just lovely.

Calling a newly disclosed phone data monitoring program a “critical tool,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters aboard Air Force One on Thursday that President Barack Obama looks forward to a national debate about the balance between national security and individual privacy prompted by the revelations.”The president welcomes the discussion of the trade-off,” Earnest said.Earnest said that the program, in place since the Bush administration, has been overseen by all three branches of government – legislative, executive and judicial.Earnest said he cannot comment on specific operations or classified information, but reiterated assurances that the order disclosed publicly does not allow the government to listen in to anyone’s phone. He asserted that the program has been valuable in protecting the nation from terrorist threats.
The Tyrant welcomes a debate NOW? Forget it! No more smoke and mirrors and distraction. We know who you are, what you are, and what you are planning on doing. Debates can only happen when the parties involved are equals. Reasoning with the Fourth Reich is a fool’s errand, and last time I checked, sovereign Americans were nobody’s fool.
The Obama administration responded to reports Thursday that the National Security Agency monitored data from major internet companies with a defense of the practice, describing it as a key piece of its efforts to protect the country.”Information collected under this program is among the most important and valuable intelligence information we collect, and is used to protect our nation from a wide variety of threats,” a senior administration official said in a statement.The culling of information from companies including Apple, Google and Facebook, as reported Thursday evening by The Washington Post and The Guardian, involves “extensive procedures” approved by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ‘to ensure that only non-U.S. persons outside the U.S. are targeted, and that minimize the acquisition, retention and dissemination of incidentally acquired information about U.S. persons,’ the official said.
Dear State Representative,
The US Federal Government is a now a Full-term abortion. It is over. The American dream is dead, and ”when the music’s over, turn out the lights.” (~Jim Morrison)
Every single time I turn on the news or get on the internet, there is some new scandal being announced. There is corruption, there are lies, there is nepotism, there is theft, and there is fraud. These are not isolated cases of individual wrongdoing – it is systematic and we have now reached the proverbial tipping point. I could spend hours listing all that has surfaced during the past month alone, but I have better things to do than be a historian for all this. However, there is one thing that has been trampled on way too many times recently for my taste, and that is the Bill of Rights.
I am only 40 years old, but never in my life has the question of basic, natural rights come up so often in the news as any of the Bill of Rights have over the past 6 months. These are not rights bestowed upon us by a benevolent government. They are inherent. The governed, who are sovereign, provide the government with Sovereignty. How could the government be sovereign otherwise, unless we empowered it? Without the Bill of Rights, we are no longer special. Without the Bill of Rights, we are no longer free. Without the Bill of Rights, we have tyranny. Without the Bill of Rights, the US Government is NOT SOVEREIGN. It is nothing but a shell corporation.
I am sick to death of Washington, and I can’t take it any more!
Here is one example of many from just today:
CBS announced that ”Dept. of Homeland Security says Laptops & Phones Can Be Searched Based on Hunches.”
Hunches are not Constitutional. They are exactly opposite of being Constitutional. It’s supposed to be PROBABLE CAUSE. Think about the difference. If this is the US Government representing America, then there is no such thing as America any more; and therefore, no need to Secede if we don’t like it. The US Govt. has already seceded from the People, and I have a “hunch” that Texas needs to start nationalizing US Government assets immediately. No, I require it, because if you don’t, then it’s easy to foresee that The People will at some point – it’ll just be a little more messy that way.
The US Government is an Abortion from America and Liberty, and everyone recognizes that fact now. What are you going to do about it? Will you represent me, or must I represent myself? Are you my servant, or the other way around? I would really like to know how straight your spine is.
If you don’t like what I have to say, then I invite you to Come And Take It. I am a Texan, and I am a free man, because I say so. I am not a Serf of the fraudulent US Government. I do not consent, and I waive the benefits of US Citizenship. Texans don’t back down from a fight, and this bully is just asking for a good beating.
We are living in a corrupt police state. Many generations come and go where no defense of Liberty is necessary, but we do not enjoy these times now. I will not shirk from my duty to water the Tree of Liberty when it is wilting. Will you?
The Powers That Be know they cannot just order their jackboots to confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens. Patriotic members of the military and law enforcement will refuse to do such an un-Constitutional act against the general populace, but given a ‘good’ reason, they’ll go along with it. Here is the backdoor reason; mental illness. Now that the un-Constitutional Obamacare is in place, your doctor may be ‘enlisted’ to ask you questions about firearms you may own. What happens to the patient that is placed on Wellbutrin for smoking cessation (as millions have been) only to have law enforcement show up to confiscate their firearms because this form of medication is an antidepressant?
It appears that California is setting the stage for just such an event. From Sheriff Paul Schrader of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
I received some disturbing information this week. Sheriff John McMahon’s staff has a “list” of names that have been compiled by the Department of “mentally ill” individuals who have guns registered to them. It is the intention of the Department to confiscate these guns without due process.
Just last week, the California Senate approved a $24 million funding bill to expedite the process of collecting guns from owners in the state who legally acquired them but have since become disqualified due to mental illness.
Such was recently the case for one woman, who had been in the hospital voluntarily for mental illness last year that she says was due to medication she was taking. Lynette Phillips of Upland, CA said she had purchased a gun years ago for her husband, David, as a present. That gun, as well as two others registered to her law-abiding husband (who does not have a history of felonies or mental illness), were seized.
Her husband is upset that they took the right from him that should never have been taken.
But according to the state of California, that doesn’t matter.
“The prohibited person can’t have access to a firearm” regardless of who the registered owner is, Michelle Gregory, a spokeswoman for the attorney general’s office.
The California Department of Justice is running a program to confiscate registered guns from homes that local law enforcement refused to implement. It’s called the Armed Prohibited Persons (APPs) program.
Merely being in a database of registered gun owners and having a “disqualifying event,” such as a isn’t sufficient evidence for a search warrant, So the officers often must talk their way into a residence to look for weapons.
How does the Department know who is mentally ill and who at the Department defines mental illness?
Gun owners are losing their 2nd Amendment rights without due process.
HIPAA Laws are likely being compromised and the 4th and 5th Amendments are being violated in some of these cases.
Just like anyone, I do not want a mentally ill person to own a firearm. But I do not want the government taking guns from sane people they call mentally ill.
