“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” — The Declaration of Independence


We’re a nation that was founded by principled revolutionaries who took on the superpower of their day over almost insignificant taxes they felt Britain had no right to levy. These men were small government fanatics who felt very comfortable with God, guns, and taking care of themselves. The principles those men put in place and the standards they set were what helped turn America into the most successful nation that has ever existed on God’s green earth.

In order to be fair, it’s worth noting that in some respects, we’ve done a better job of fulfilling the vision of the Founding Fathers than they were able to accomplish in their lifetimes. We got rid of slavery, became the world’s only superpower, and delivered a level of economic prosperity that wasn’t even dreamed of when men like Ben Franklin, John Hancock, and George Washington roamed the earth.

In a time when it’s commonplace to hear intelligent people speculating privately about how long it’s going to be before America experiences a debt-driven economic crash that the country may NEVER recover from, it’s worth considering how far off the rails we’ve gone from what the Founding Fathers originally wanted and intended for this nation. For all of our success, many things that Americans unquestioningly accept today would have been considered intolerable to the Founding Fathers.

In a time when our nation is engaged in unsustainable economic policies that seem likely to put an end to America’s run as a great nation, perhaps it’s time to consider whether our real problem is that we’ve veered so far from the most successful blueprint for a country ever devised that the Founding Fathers would turn over in their graves if they found out about….

1) Not just 15% of Americans being on food stamps, but the existence of a food stamp program.

2) Forcing Americans to buy health insurance via Obamacare as a condition of American citizenship.

3) Members of Congress voting on bills that they haven’t read.

4) The Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, not so much because the Founding Fathers would oppose abortion, although they would, but because the Court is unconstitutionally taking power away from each state to make its own decision.

5) The federal government taxing states and then using that money to blackmail the states into doing what the Feds want to get their own money back.

6) The average government workers making more than the average citizens paying their taxes.

7) In 2010, the average net worth of a senator was 13 million dollars while the net worth of the average American family was $77,300.

8) A permanent income tax.

9) Expelling children from government schools for playing with toy guns on their own property.

10) Having TSA agents putting their hands on people’s crotches and sticking their fingers inside people’s pants at the airports.

11) Having the NSA collect the phone records and emails of hundreds of millions of law abiding Americans.

12) Having Christian prayers, the Ten Commandments, and mentions of God banned in schoolhouses and on government property.

and last but not least….

13) The fact that snooty Brit Piers Morgan is lecturing Americans on TV. Patrick Henry would tell him to shove his fish and chips where the sun doesn’t shine.

(The Hill) – Nothing less than the boundaries of executive power are at stake Monday as the Supreme Court considers whether President Obama violated the Constitution during his first term.

Oral arguments slated for Monday will center on a trio of recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that were deemed unconstitutional by lower courts.

If they uphold the decision, experts say the justices could endanger hundreds of NLRB decisions.

Even more significant are the ramifications for future presidents, with the court poised either to bolster or blunt the chief executive’s appointment powers.

“Rulings like this have implications that last for centuries,” said Michael Lotito, an employment and labor attorney and co-chairman of Littler Mendelson’s Workplace Policy Institute.

Presidents have for decades used recess appointment powers when the Senate is away to install judges and fill top federal vacancies that ordinarily would be subject to confirmation proceedings.

But with the disputed NLRB appointments, Obama became the first president to appoint nominees when the Senate was in a “pro-forma” session, when the upper chamber is briefly called to order and adjourned every few days.

The sessions are intended to prevent recess appointments, and usually only a handful of senators are present for them. In filling the NLRB posts, the Obama administration claims that the Senate is generally not available to conduct business during the sessions, so the president’s recess appointment power is in effect.

“The sham pro-forma sessions are nothing more than that,” said Catholic University law professor Victor Williams, who filed a brief backing the government’s position.

The impetus for recess appointments has faded now that Senate Democrats have changed their chamber’s rules to allow for a simple majority vote on presidential nominees. Nevertheless, the case could stunt Obama’s and future presidents’ authority when it comes to staffing administrations.

The case was brought by Noel Canning, an Oregon-based soft drink bottling and distribution company that challenged the appointments as unconstitutional.

In January of last year, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed.

The appellate court ruling under now review at the Supreme Court found a narrow window for the president to make recess appointments. Under its decision, the president can only make such appointments when the Senate is in recess between sessions of Congress, and only if a vacancy occurred in that same time period.

That goes well against protocol adopted by past Democratic and Republican presidents. A Congressional Service Research report found 329 such appointments since 1981 that would not meet that criteria and would be ruled void if the appeals court decision was law.

Some see the fight against the labor board as a broader effort in which opponents have sought to stymie the Obama administration’s rules and regulations.

“I think the battle against the NLRB over the last few years has been a proxy war about the proper role and scope of government,” said Wilma Liebman, who served as chairwoman of the NLRB from January 2009 to August 2011.

The obscure agency has become ground zero in that war, pitting business against labor and Republicans against Democrats.

The private sector mobilized a massive lobbying campaign after Obama’s election, fearing a Democratic president might enact a host of policy changes favorable to unions.

The effort first targeted legislation that would ease union organizing, but shifted to the NLRB nominees and its decisions.

“There has been an especially rancorous degree of controversy whipped around the NLRB. It got swept up with the Employee Free Choice Act,” Liebman said.

The NLRB has had its decisions overturned by the high court before. In 2010, the Supreme Court found the board lacked the authority to make decisions for more than two years because it only had two members — one short of a quorum.

About 600 NLRB decisions were made in that time period, and the board was forced to go back through about 100 of them.

Liebman said it was a time-consuming process, but one the labor board could do again.

“We issued new decisions in a relatively short period of time. We had a process in place and went methodically back through them,” Liebman said. “It took some time that we could have spent doing other things. It wasn’t the end of the world.”

But having to turn its focus on previous decisions could sidetrack the NLRB from what is seen as an activist agenda at a critical moment, said Lolito, whose firm represents employers.

The board is now at full strength for the first time in years, and was expected to tackle numerous issues involving union elections.

“If this board has to spend the next good couple of years looking backward instead of forward, many in the employer community would say that’s good news,” he said.

In Monday’s arguments, attorneys with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will argue on behalf of Noel Canning that the NLRB operated without a quorum for well over a year, causing confusion for both employers and employees.

“We look forward to the much needed clarity that the Supreme Court’s decision will bring,” said Lily Fu Claffee, the Chamber’s general counsel.

The Obama administration’s case hinges on winning three points, according to Georgetown University Law Center’s Nicholas Quinn Rosenkranz, who is arguing against the government.

First, it must convince the justices that presidents may make appointments during regular recesses and not, as the appeals court ruled, only during the breaks between numbered sessions on Congress.

Next, the court must agree that the appointments may include the filling of vacancies that existed before the recess began, rather than those that occurred during a recess.

Finally, it must conclude that the pro-forma sessions do not count as formal sessions of Congress.

Proving all three points, particularly the last, would be a tall order, said Rosenkranz, who predicted a 9-0 ruling in favor of Noel Canning.

“I don’t think this is a close case,” he said.

The Washington Post reports that U.S. officials suspect Sufian Ben Qumu, an ex-Guantanamo detainee, “played a role in the attack on the American compound in Benghazi, Libya, and are planning to designate the group he leads as a foreign terrorism organization.” Ben Qumu is based in Derna, Libya and runs a branch of Ansar al Sharia headquartered in the city.

clip_image004

U.S. officials have found that some of Ben Qumu’s militiamen from Derna “participated in the attack” and “were in Benghazi before the attack took place on Sept. 11, 2012.”

Ben Qumu was fingered early on as a suspect in the Benghazi attack, but his name dropped out of much of the reporting on the assault for more than one year.

In November 2013, however, THE WEEKLY STANDARD reported: “U.S. intelligence officials believe that Sufian Ben Qumu, a Libyan ex-Guantánamo detainee, trained some of the jihadists who carried out the attacks in Benghazi.” Ben Qumu, TWS reported, “has longstanding connections with al Qaeda leadership.”

Ben Qumu’s biography is rich with al Qaeda links:

Ben Qumu is one of the original “Arab Afghans” who traveled to Afghanistan to fight the Soviets in the 1980s. In the years that followed the end of the anti-Soviet jihad, Ben Qumu followed al Qaeda to the Sudan and then, in the mid-to-late 1990s, back to Afghanistan and Pakistan. He was eventually arrested in Pakistan after the 9/11 attacks and transferred to the American detention facility at Guantánamo Bay.

A leaked Joint Task Force Guantánamo (JTF-GTMO) threat assessment describes Ben Qumu as an “associate” of Osama bin Laden. JTF-GTMO found that Ben Qumu worked as a driver for a company owned by bin Laden in the Sudan, fought alongside al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan, and maintained ties to several other well-known al Qaeda leaders. Ben Qumu’s alias was found on the laptop of an al Qaeda operative responsible for overseeing the finances for the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The information on the laptop indicated that Ben Qumu was an al Qaeda “member receiving family support.”

An August 2012 report published by the Library of Congress in conjunction with the Defense Department, titled “Al Qaeda in Libya: a Profile,” identified Ben Qumu as the possible “new face of al Qaeda in Libya despite” his denial of an ongoing al Qaeda role. The report also noted that Ben Qumu and his Ansar al Sharia fighters are “believed to be close to the al Qaeda clandestine network” in Libya. According to the report’s authors, that same network is headed by al Qaeda operatives who report to al Qaeda’s senior leadership in Pakistan, including Ayman al Zawahiri.

The reporting on Ben Qumu’s ties to the Benghazi attack directly refutes an account by David Kirkpatrick of the New York Times. Kirkpatrick reported that “neither Mr. Qumu nor anyone else in Derna appears to have played a significant role in the attack on the American Mission, officials briefed on the investigation and the intelligence said.”

The Post reports that, in addition to Ben Qumu and Ansar al Sharia Derna, the branches of Ansar al Sharia in Benghazi and Tunisia are going to be designated as terrorist organizations by the State Department.

Two other individuals, Ahmed Abu Khattala and Seifallah ben Hassine, are going to be added to the list of “specially designated global terrorists.”   

Seifallah Ben Hassine (a.k.a. Abu Iyad al Tunisi) is the head of Ansar al Sharia Tunisia, which assaulted the U.S. Embassy in Tunis just three days after the attack in Benghazi.

In its annual Country Reports on Terrorism, published in May 2013, the State Department noted that Ben Hassine “was implicated as the mastermind behind the September 14 attack on the US Embassy,” which involved “a mob of 2,000 – 3,000” people, “including individuals affiliated with the militant organization Ansar al Sharia.”

The ties between Ben Hassine, Ansar al Sharia and al Qaeda are longstanding and well-established.

According to multiple published reports, Ben Hassine relocated to Libya after the Tunisian government labeled Ansar al Sharia a terrorist organization and cracked down on its operatives. The Tunisian government has repeatedly alleged that the Ansar al Sharia groups in Libya and Tunisia are tied to one another, as well as al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). 

The Post’s report concludes: “In addition to Qumu and Khattala, American officials are eager to question Faraj al Chalabi, a Libyan extremist who might have fled the country.”

As THE WEEKLY STANDARD reported on multipleoccasions, Chalabi is considered a key suspect by U.S. intelligence officials. Two U.S. intelligence officials say Chalabi once served as a bodyguard for Osama bin Laden and is suspected of brining materials from the compound in Benghazi to senior al Qaeda leadership in Pakistan.

260x190xfood-stamp.jpg.pagespeed.ic.ZFrSJZZXA9

Food stamps cover steak, lobster, and caviar.

Yesterday, I made an image to post on Facebook explaining this, and it went viral. As of right now, almost 2,000 people have shared it, and plenty of people have reacted in anger, explaining that I hate the poor. I’ve deleted several comments telling me to go to Hell, telling me I’m a Nazi, and telling me I hate babies.

This is, of course, absurd. But let’s ignore the angry rhetoric and look at what’s actually going on when it comes to food stamps. People are horrified to talk about this, because they’ll instantly be labeled bad words, and theft has become a way of life in a post-bailout America.

But this is Capitalism Institute — the goal is to speak the truth no matter whose toes are stepped on.

Unbelievable Statistics About Food Stamps

This isn’t just a fringe problem. Food stamps are becoming an inherent part of American life as almost every grocery line has someone using a debit card filled with other peoples’ money to spend on whatever they choose. In fact:

  • Over 45,000,000 Americans are on food stamps. That means 1 in 7. To visualize this, that means every pew in every church is filled with someone who is living — literally — off the money of everyone else sitting on that pew. Not family members, not kids living off parents — adults living off of other adults.
  • Food stamps cover luxury items like lobster and filet mignon. An image circulated a few days ago of a receipt in which someone had $200+ worth of lobster tail and Mountain Dew and paid for it with a food stamp card. The grocery store confirmed it was true. When I was poor, I ate rice and beans and worried about paying my bills on time. For those on food stamps, eating cheaply isn’t necessary. This is disgusting, and is a backwards incentive. When I was poor I had a friend who began smoking pot an living off of welfare, bragging at how easy it was. Lives are ruined when you have broken policy.
  • A family of five gets $700+ for food alone. However, people who are on food stamps get at least $100 per person, on average alone. That means people who are actually poor receive well over this per person. From the federal government alone, a family of five can receive $793 per month, not including the 180 free meals also offered at public school for the school-aged kids.

This is just food stamps alone. This isn’t about housing welfare, free college payments, infant assistance, free public schooling, or actual cash from the government. This is the food program alone. For many people, it makes far more sense to eat salmon on food stamps than to accept a part time job and risk losing the “free” money.

People on welfare eat better than many people in the middle class who don’t qualify. That is wrong. And no, this isn’t just an occasional bit of fraud. This is what the system is supposed to do. Someone told me yesterday that he worked in a grocery store, told a lady that food stamps didn’t cover the dog food she picked, so she went back and got t-bones.

That should upset you.

If you support welfare existing to stop starvation from being possible, then that’s one thing. I get it. Babies dying of malnutrition isn’t exactly what the goal is. But there’s no way around the fact that welfare should be reformed, cut, and that we should focus on giving tax cuts to the middle class to make it easier to leave poverty in the first place.

Why Welfare Reform Matters

Why does this matter? Because 1 in 7 Americans are on food stamps. Average it out, and almost every house in America has a welfare recipient in food stamps alone — not counting Social Security, disability, or the billions in other programs.

This is insane. And to the libertarians reading this — this should upset you just as much as corporate welfare, if not more, because these people are voters. At some point, that number is going to be so high that it won’t matter anymore, because defeating a socialist when half the voters are getting checks will be impossible.

This isn’t about being anti-poor. This is about saving the republic and saving capitalism. Poor people not getting free lobsters at the cost of the middle class is just basic common sense — but if you dare say this in public, you’ll be demonized.

This isn’t a theoretical risk in the future. This is right now. The system is working as it’s planned to work — to create a dependent class of people who will vote for any socialist because they want cash and all the food they can eat. This is wrong. And that’s why welfare reform matters.

Sharpton-Town-Hall-Breitbart

On Thursday, a town hall meeting hosted by Al Sharpton and the National Action Network to address gun violence exploded into a revolt against “Chicago Machine” politics, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and the aldermen in City Hall, with panel and audience members calling to vote out their elected officials.

One 82-year-old preacher even called for Tea Party style meetings in some of Chicago’s south side communities such as Altgeld Gardens and Trumbull Park.

 “This was a historic event,” Paul McKinley of V.O.T.E. (Voices of the Ex-Offender) and former 2nd Congressional District GOP nominee to replace Jesse Jackson, Jr. told Breitbart News. “Not because of Al Sharpton coming to town,” he continued. “This was first time since electing Mayor Harold Washington in the eighties that all of these grassroots groups and community organizers have come together under one roof to talk about the problems plaguing our community.”

While the stated goal for Sharpton was to bring the many different groups together to discuss solutions to the city’s violence epidemic, he may not have gotten the types of responses he was looking for. Calls for more gun control laws and getting guns off the streets were nonexistent and not mentioned by residents throughout the session.

Instead, attendees offered solutions addressing the problems facing their community as a whole rather than just taking on “gun violence” itself. Audience members addressed the need for jobs and solving the foreclosure crisis plaguing Chicago’s south and west sides. Perhaps the loudest message—and one that Reverend Al or the Chicago media have yet to report on—echoed by several different people in attendance as well as panel members was that it is time for the black community to start voting differently.

“The manner in which we have been voting needs to change,” Wendy Pearson, an activist against Chicago school closings, told the room. “I’m here to say to you that we have been trained to vote in a specific manner… we need to start looking at the manner in which our elected officials have been voting… if they have not voted in a manner that is beneficial to you, yours, and your community, then you need to start voting them out.”

McKinley told the room, “Stop blaming just anybody for the violence in the city of Chicago. Blame the right people, not just white people, but the right people. Because it’s not just white folks a part of this, but it is on the fifth floor. The fifth floor took your schools, the fifth floor just took your jobs that he said that he gave to the ex-offender… and every single alderman was a part of this criminal process.”

McKinley called on President Obama to help the grassroots by discontinuing aid and government grants that go through Chicago’s political machine to “name-brand-blue-ribbon-negro-organizations” such as the NAACP and Urban League. McKinley told Breitbart News those groups “are poverty pimps, and are part of the problem and not the solution.”

In a letter sent late Wednesday, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa reminded Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that obstructing a congressional investigation is a crime.

Issa’s Committee has been looking into the details of how Obamacare was implemented, along with the major problems with Healthcare.gov and has requested a number of documents from HHS, none of which he’s received. The documents requested pertain to companies hired by HHS to build and operate Healthcare.gov.

“The Department [HHS] subsequently instructed those companies not to comply with the Committee’s request. The Department’s hostility toward questions from Congress and the media about the implementation of Obamcare is well known. The Department’s most recent effort to stonewall, however, has morphed from mere obstinacy into criminal obstruction of a congressional investigation,” Issa wrote.

The letter details a contract between HHS and Creative Computing Solutions, Inc. (CCSI) forcing the company to get approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services before cooperating with Congress, making it nearly impossible for lawmakers to get documents from the company directly. CCSI has been citing the contract as the reason why they cannot turn over requested documents to Congress. In the letter, Issa indicated this refusal by CCSI under the thumb of HHS could be criminal obstruction of a congressional investigation.

“The Departmen’t instruction not to cooperate with congressional investigations relies on language in the contract with CCSI which precludes contractors from sharing certain data with third parties. Moreover, the Department explicitly forbids the release of documents without authorization from CMS. That argument — that the language in the contract between the Department and a private company supersedes Congress’ constitutional prerogative to conduct oversight — is without merit,” Issa wrote. “In fact, it strains credulity to such an extent that it creates the appearance that the Department is using the threat of litigation to deter private companies from cooperating with Congress. The Department’s attempt to threaten CCSI for the purpose of deterring the company from providing documents to Congress places the officials responsible for drafting and sending the letter on the wrong side of federal statues that prohibit obstruction of a congressional investigation. Obstructing a Congressional investigation is a crime.”

Issa instructed Sebelius to inform HHS officials to immediately stop directing employees and contractors not to turn over Healthcare.gov documents to Congress. He also reminded Sebelius that a subpoena was issued to her on October 30, 2013 and requires a response.

“Private citizens and companies cannot contract away their duty to comply with a congressional request for documents,” Issa said. “Furthermore, the Department’s instruction to CCSI and other contractors not to respond to congressional document requests runs afoul of a federal statute that prohibits interfering with an employees’ right to furnish information to Congress. Under that statute, any effort to enforce a contract that prevents a federal employee — or in this case, a contractor — from communicating with Congress is unlawful.”

Thursday, the Oversight Committee will hold a hearing about Obamacare’s impact on premiums and provider networks as millions continue to see skyrocketing insurance rates, loss of health insurance and a loss of preferred doctors.

Allen West warns of back-door attack on guns

Former U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., is joining the National Rifle Association and other gun-rights groups to warn about a back-door attack on the Second Amendment by the Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency.

Ex-Rep. Allen B. West, R-Fla.

In a column posted on his website Sunday, West wrote about the Doe Run company’s lead-producing plant in Herculaneum, Mo., which is being forced to close after the EPA required it to spend up to $100 million on upgrades.

Doe Run, the last primary lead smelter in the United States, has been around since 1892 but is closing on Dec. 31.

West accused Obama of using the EPA to advance “backdoor gun control … while we are all distracted with Obamacare and Iran nuclear negotiations.”

West argued the Obama administration’s “new extremely tight air-quality restrictions” have led to the end of lead as the primary metal in bullets — making ammunition much more expensive and less accessible and leaving America no choice but to turn to overseas operations to produce lead bullets, a situation West says is akin to a federal power grab on guns.

“Come 2014, all ammunition sold to civilian gun owners in America will have to be imported, a result of President Obama’s crackdown on sulfur dioxide and lead emissions and accompanying harsh Environmental Protection Agency regulations,” wrote West.

The Doe Run smelter opened in 1892/Photo: KBIA

“[This] will surely increase the price and possibly come under government control,” Mr. West warned, according to a Breitbart.com report. “It seems this is fully in concert with the U.S. military and Homeland Defense recent purchase of large quantities of ammunition.”

He said the “chilling effect” is that while the closure of the smelt plant doesn’t take guns out of the hands of Americans, it does put in jeopardy ammunition supplies.

As the largest lead producer in North America, Doe Run was embroiled in a decade-long battle between angry parents, government regulators and environmentalists, who argued the plant was responsible for high levels of lead in the blood of children in the area, according to an August story on Mid-Missouri Public Radio.

The battles over contamination in the town pitted neighbor against neighbor and culminated in a flurry of lawsuits. One of them singled out the EPA and forced the federal government to revise the national air pollution standard for lead, tightening it by a factor of ten.

The NRA-ILA issued a press release in response to Doe Run’s closing:

Doe Run made significant efforts to reduce lead emissions from the smelter, but in 2008 the federal Environmental Protection Agency issued new National Ambient Air Quality Standards for lead that were 10 times tighter than the previous standard. Given the new lead air quality standard, Doe Run made the decision to close the Herculaneum smelter.

Whatever the EPA’s motivation when creating the new lead air quality standard, increasingly restrictive regulation of lead is likely to affect the production and cost of traditional ammunition. Just this month, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a bill that will ban lead ammunition for all hunting in California. The Center for Biological Diversity has tried multiple times to get similar regulations at the federal level by trying, and repeatedly failing, to get the EPA to regulate conventional ammunition under the Toxic Substances Control Act.

“You can own all the guns you want, but if you can’t get ammo, you are out of luck,” West wrote, on his blog. “Remember when President Obama promised his minions that he was working on gun control behind the scenes? Welcome to it. The result is that all domestically mined ore will have to be shipped overseas, refined and then shipped back to the U.S.”

West warned: “Not only will ammo be even harder to come by, the demand and the process of supply will cause the price to skyrocket even more. And ponder this: There is an excellent chance that Obama will rig the market to where all ammo has to be purchased from the government, instituting an ammo registration. … So America, backdoor gun control is moving forward … [and] our Second Amendment rights are undergoing an assault by clandestine infiltration.”

West concluded his editorial by bashing the president’s “progressive socialist acolytes” for destroying the Second Amendment before telling fellow GOP politicians, “Now it’s our move in 2014.”

But Obama pushing gun control on American citizens

US buying up AK-47’s

 

Secretary of State John Kerry signing the United Nations small arms treaty is nothing more than empty symbolism, and President Obama will get nowhere in his latest attempt to advance gun-control legislation, says Bill Frady, host of “Lock ‘n’ Load Radio” presented by Gun Owners of America, who also noted that the U.S. government has been buying up AK-47 rifles and ammunition.

Kerry signed the U.N.’s Arms Trade Treaty this week while in New York City for the opening of the U.N. General Assembly. Supporters say it would clamp down on weapons trafficking between rogue regimes and terrorist organizations. Frady told WND it would have a restricting effect on law-abiding gun owners in the U.S. as well.

“It also dictates to the signing states that they have to impose new rules and regulations within their nations to make sure they’re able to comply with this treaty and that covers small arms,” Frady said. “Terrorists are not running around with American-made weapons. They’re running around with AKs. There’s various nations that will underwrite any cause (such as) Russia, China. The AK is the prevalent weapon on the planet. So we’re not the problem. I did notice that along the way (Obama) did manage to get in there and back Syrian rebels to the tune of $340 million.

“I’m sure he wants to arm them,” he said. “The United States Army has been buying AKs and AK magazines and AK ammo. I’m just presuming that they want to send that to our Syrian brethren, the great rebel freedom fighters, so they’ll have something they’re accustomed to.”

Like any treaty, this one would need two-thirds support in the U.S. Senate to be ratified in this country. A procedural vote months ago shows the plan cannot even draw a simple majority in the Democratically controlled chamber. As a result, Frady said Kerry and Obama embracing the treaty is just window dressing.

“For a moment, it’s a symbolic victory for him, but that’s going to last about five minutes,” said Frady, who believes Obama will try to tell his base this is the best he can do given the current makeup of Congress.

Other gun-rights advocates are more fearful that Obama may try to implement the treaty through executive orders if the Senate continues it’s opposition. Senate Foreign Relations Committee ranking member Bob Corker has written the president and strongly discouraged enforcing any component of the treaty without Senate ratification. Frady believes Obama could pay a hefty price if he defies the Senate.

“If he were to actually try to do that, that might be a turning point for a lot of people.  Clearly, he doesn’t have the mandate that he thinks he does.  Gun control is not on the minds of too many people right now in the wake of everything that’s been going on around here.  The gun free zone is what’s on everybody’s mind,” said Frady.  ”I think that would be a very bad move.”

The Democratic push for additional gun-control legislation failed to advance in the U.S. Senate earlier this year. Nonetheless, President Obama made another plea for Americans to demand new laws earlier this week. At the memorial service for Washington Navy Yard shooting victims, Obama asked if Americans “care enough” about the victims to press relentlessly for additional gun restrictions.

“Of course we care enough. The gun-owning populace cringes, not because we know we’re having to gird ourselves for more gun control talk but because we don’t like innocent lives being snuffed,” Frady said. “Sixty-nine hundred times a day, people defend themselves with guns. A gun is a tool.”

Frady pointed to a recent slashing spree on a Texas campus as proof that people need guns to defend themselves because threats to life can come in many forms.

“He went into a college where they didn’t have any guns and he slashed with impunity. The fact that nobody died is just dumb luck,” he said. “It’s a very blatant reality that where you don’t allow people to arm themselves, they are fish in a barrel.”

The gun debate may be off the front burner in Washington but it’s red hot in some states.  Maryland’s new gun-control laws take effect next week and voters recalled two Colorado lawmakers who backed new restrictions in that state.

One of the marquee races this November is the race for governor of Virginia between state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and former Democratic Party chairman Terry McAuliffe. In a state where Democrats have historically shied away from gun-control rhetoric and even court the National Rifle Association, McAuliffe is now rolling the dice by backing universal background checks, magazine capacity limits and a return to Virginia’s former policy of only allowing one gun purchase per month. Some of those positions mirror the new laws in Colorado.

“It’s sort of like Terry McAuliffe is trying to parachute into Virginia and tell everybody in Virginia that is law-abiding that ‘I’m smarter than you and I know how to take care of you.’ Go ahead and embrace Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia,” Frady said. “You will not be sorry.”

HE IS NOT ONE OF US.

This presentation is a logical layout presentation of verifiable facts that you can see and verify the Evidence for Yourself.

First he is an Illegal alien, second he is a Communist, third, he is a Muslim, fourth, he hates Liberty and Freedom and The Rule of Law.

BARACK OBAMA’S most attacked targets are THE PEOPLE OF THE USA.

Obama HARMS AMERICANS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

HIS UNLAWFUL usurpation can be verified easily, if one cares to know what the TRUTH is:

BARACK OBAMA IS AN ILLEGAL ALIEN.

LOOKING AT THE REFERENCES IN THE FOLLOWING LIST WOULD CONVINCE EVEN AN AGNOSTIC.

If you seek TRUTH investigate the following references.

ALL OF BARACK OBAMA’S IDENTITY DOCUMENTS ARE FORGED OR STOLEN.

If he were really a USA citizen, he would have real Documents, the only reason not to have them is he Is NOT a USA citizen.

1) BARACK OBAMA’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE IS A FORGERY:

Documents plus lucid thought that show The White House Slideshare Birth Certificate is not just a forgery, but a Laughably poor forgery at that. Obama must really have been rushed to present it, because it is awful and has a dozen “TELLS” of Forgery even a 5th grader can understand and believe.

Anyone that thinks the same should copy this post and distribute it everywhere.

A Simple Proof of Forgery. One does not need to be a rocket scientist or Adobe Acrobat Expert to see FRAUD in Barack Obama’s White house posted Birth Certificate. It is easy to see the Forgery “Tells”.

In case you do not trust anyone like I don’t: Visit the White House Slide Share Website anyone, see it for yourself: http://www.slideshare.net/whitehouse/birth-certificatelongform

Simple proofs/tells of forgery of Barack H Obama’s White House Birth Certificate.
I am amazed that I can post proofs of Forgery on HIS, the COMMIES White House Website, and it is not removed by anyone. How Arrogant that Narcissist is.

Here are some obvious “Proofs/Tells” of Forgery. A Teen in his underwear in his parents basement must have been the one to make this Absolutely Comedic Forgery of Barack Obama’s Birth Certificate.

Simple Proofs/Tells of forgery.

1. Scratch Out in 18a & 19a. Official Gov Docs don’t have them.

2. Check in 18a is fraud. No other Data Box on this doc or era typewriter has this.

3. No reason for Delayed or Late registration. See why on the Aloha website in Note #7….!!!

What Obama’s BC Note #7 says, “Born in Kenya, Registered in Hawaii Per
Grandmother” ! That is So Funny!

4. Data Entry Block 6c has overlapping characters: “ap”, “ty” and “Gy” overlap. That means they used Kerning to space the printed characters. Kerning did not exist in 1961, invented much later.

5. Smiley face in Alvin’s Signature. Forrest Gump did not invent Smiley until 1968.

6. The shadow “9″s in Data Block #9 and #12b mean the Data Block is Blank, nothing there. Duh, there is something there. Ms U Lee who signed this document is 96 years old and told Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Mike Zullo that the 9 code is for a data base and it means the block is empty.

7. See Real Hawaiian Registration of Obama’s Kenyan Birth.
http://alohareporter.com/2010/03/18/hawaii-considering-law-to-ignore-obama-birthers/

8. See Real Kenyan BC’s, both a Photocopy and a certified Copy at:
http://thepowerhour.com/news4/obama_kenyan_birth_certificate.htm

Any of these Tells Proves the Document is a Forgery. This many says that it is
an Amateurish and Comedic forgery.

2) BARACK OBAMA’S SELECTIVE SERVICE REGISTRATION IS A FORGERY (DRAFT CARD):
For you folks that have not seen The Liar In Chiefs Forged Selective Service
Registration, the Forgery tell is so Simple a First Grader can see the Proof of
Forgery.

All SSR’s have a 4 digit date code. Obama’s SSR is the only SSR in the Whole
Universe of the Galaxies of all Space/Time that has only a 2 digit date code.
The forger could not easily get a 1979 date so he did get a 2008 date block,
cut it in half and flipped the “08″ over, inserted the “80″ into the stamp and stamped the “80″, instead of the “1979″ as it should have been. All 18 year old males are required to register for the draft, at least that was so in 1979 when Obama supposedly turned 18. But anyway, the Point of the Fraudulent SSR is to make Americans “THINK” that Obama is an “American”.

HE IS NOT ONE OF US.

Oh PSS, It is a FELONY, to forge a government document and claim it as if it
was valid. So Obama is a Felon for his SSR, and BC, and His Stolen SSN. There it is again, The Criminal In Chief of the USA, Barry Soebarkah.
http://www.theobamafile.com/_eligibility/DraftRegistration.htm

3) BARACK OBAMA’S SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER: 042-68-4425 IS STOLEN. Oh, Yes the first ILLEGAL ALIEN THAT NEEDS TO BE CHECKED OUT ON E-VERIFY IS BARACK H OBAMA II. His Stolen Social Security number fails E-verify. It has been checked so many times by NON-Believer & Kool-Aid Haters that the SSA has disabled it from being checked. It starts with “042″ which means it was issued in Connecticut. Hawaii prefixes are 575 and 576. Barack’s first job was at an Ice Cream Parlor in Hawaii and his parents never lived in Connecticut. The SSN is issued ONLY in your Home State.

Please check it out for yourself. The Stolen SSN is, 042-68-4425. It is all over the internet, that Social Security Number belongs to Harrison J Bounel who was born in Russia in 1890 and was listed in a Connecticut Census in 1940.

SSNs are not reissued. But I think that O’ILLEGALALIEN is trying to change that, by FIAT.

You can read the story of the “skip Tracer that stumbled upon the data that links both Obama and Bounel to the same SSN: 042-68-4425. A story of the data and the connection was put together by a Skip Tracer named Albert Hendershot and can be viewed on the World Net Daily website at
http://www.wnd.com/2011/08/336889/

To See the video of Al Hendershot showing how he found that Obama and Bounel have the same SSN
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ma9xCv-8zsg

4) BARACK OBAMA’S LITERARY BIOS, WRITTEN BY HIMSELF, for Acton & Dystel,

IT SAYS ‘BORN IN KENYA and raised in Indonesia”. Barack Obama’s Literary Bios was written by himself, don’t believe the LIE: “he did not write it”.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/05/17/The-Vetting-Barack-Obama-Literary-Agent-1991-Born-in-Kenya-Raised-Indonesia-Hawaii

LIARS LIE, CHEATERS CHEAT, AND MURDERERS, MURDER. AND Barak Soebarkah (his last real name), AKA Barry Soetoro, AKA Harrison J Bounel, AKA Barack H Obama II, AKA Barak Mounir Ubayd;

Barack Obama HAS DONE ALL THREE.

Is Obama bigger threat to U.S. military than even Taliban?

author-image

WASHINGTON — Aaron Carson Vaughn was an All-American kid who became the best of the best, one of the most skilled warriors in history.

He was a highly decorated member of the elite Navy SEAL Team 6, but he was killed in Afghanistan under suspicious circumstances.

According to his father, Aaron’s life was squandered by a president who was more concerned with appeasing the enemy, and even our allies, than protecting those serving under his command.

Billy Vaughn also believes his son is dead because the Obama administration put a target right on the back of SEAL Team 6.

That’s why the title of Billy’s book about his son is “Betrayed.”

Former Rep. Allen West, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, called it a “must read.”

Retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin described the book as “a fascinating story of incredible courage and sacrifice, government deceit and the changing nature of warfare.”

And syndicated columnist Diana West wrote, “Betrayed takes aim at the lies and secrecy of a government no longer true to the American people — not even to the families whose sons have paid the ultimate price.”

Born to be a SEAL

Aaron Vaughn grew up on a small Tennessee farm enjoying fishing, hunting, football, four-wheeling and mudding. But he was born for something bigger, and he knew it.

At age 8, he began telling people, “One day, I’m going to be a Navy SEAL.” But he didn’t know he would have to overcome a torn ACL that left him even unable to jog, and two failed surgeries, to even try to realize his dream.

This remarkable overachiever didn’t just beat incredibly long odds, he excelled, setting SEAL training records that still stand.

Aaron’s father believes, because “he gave his life to Christ at such an early age,” his son always had a clear understanding of right and wrong, and good and evil, and also had a keen sense of history that “recognized the 1,400-year-old-war Islam has waged upon the world.”

Aaron was a family man, a devoted husband and father of two who risked everything to serve his country.

Tragically, according to Billy, Aaron became the sacrificial victim of a president more concerned with a quixotic quest to win hearts and minds than in winning a war.

“This is what our government wants, the appeasement of our so-called allies as well as our enemies,” Billy told WND.

Lives sacrificed for politics

Asked whether he believes President Obama is sacrificing American lives for politics, he said, “Yes, I absolutely do. We know that he did not take the advice of his generals in Afghanistan. We know what a train wreck he has committed in Iraq, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. We know that he is removing generals and admirals, one after another.”

And why would Obama do that?

“He is removing the men who might advise him differently than the route he wants to go,” he said.

Billy said Obama’s “hearts and minds’ strategy” made his son’s death a “calamity waiting to happen” and that “the shoot down of Extortion 17 (the call sign for the mission helicopter) is a symptom of a far bigger problem in our military today.”

Do you believe President Obama is causing American blood to be shed?

Revenge for Osama

Revenge for Osama bin Laden

Thirty-year-old Special Operations Chief Aaron Vaughn was one of 30 U.S. special forces soldiers among those killed on Aug. 6, 2011, when a Chinook chopper was shot down by the Taliban in eastern Afghanistan.

SEAL Team VI had killed Osama bin Laden three months earlier, on May 1, 2011.

The deaths are not unrelated, according to Aaron’s father, and many others.

They strongly suspect the downing of Extortion 17 was payback against SEAL Team VI for the death of bin Laden.

And they blame the Obama administration for recklessly identifying who killed the famous terrorist leader.

WND asked Billy: Who holds the most responsibility for your son’s death?

“Absolutely, it is the United States government.”

Blood is pooling in the oval office

He strongly suggested the U.S. president has the blood of American fighters on his hands.

“American blood is being shed in a foreign land, but the trail leads right back to the Oval Office,” he said. “American warrior blood is pooling in the Oval Office.”

Billy implied the commander in chief is a bigger threat to U.S. military personnel than even the Taliban: “The biggest killing field opened up on our American warriors today in that foreign land is on their rear flank by the Obama administration.”

He also suggested that a cowed military brass also has American blood on its hands and that high-ranking military leaders “refuse to speak up” because of politics.

Billy offered a radical solution to Obama administration policies.

“I think we need to withdraw our war fighters everywhere until this man is out of the White House and our rules of engagement are changed to allow our men and women to fight to win.”

Extortion 17 mystery

There is a fog surrounding the downing of Extortion 17, which leaves the families of those killed with many questions unanswered to this day.

  • Why was this elite unit made to fly into a three-hour-long firefight with an antiquated helicopter from the Vietnam War era?
  • Why were they forced to ride along with a team of quite possibly less-than-trustworthy Afghan allies?
  • Why did the Taliban seem to know SEAL Team 6 was aboard?

On the Navy SEAL website are these questions:

  • Why didn’t the helicopter have an air escort?
  • Why wasn’t the helicopter’s black box recovered?
  • Why weren’t last-minute changes in the Afghani personnel recorded in the flight manifest?
  • Why were all the bodies cremated?
  • Did leaks from the Osama bin Laden raid factor into the largest loss of life since the inception of the Naval Special Warfare?

What happened to Extortion 17?

What happened to Extortion 17?

Biden’s loose lips targets SEALs

There is no mystery who made the leak. It was the vice president of the United States, and he did it very publicly.

Vice President Joe Biden told the world in a speech on May 3, 2011, during a Washington, D.C., dinner event that a Navy SEAL team killed bin Laden.

SEALs were stunned by the revelation.

However, the administration had actually beaten Biden to the punch and almost immediately leaked word to the media that SEAL Team VI had killed the al-Qaida chief.

The very day of the mission, ABC News reported, “The force that swooped down on the world’s most wanted terrorist has been identified as SEAL Team Six of the “Naval Special Warfare Development Group.”

“[W]e don’t need to spike the football,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said three days after bin Laden was killed.

But, to the contrary, it appeared the administration had not been able to wait even 24 hours to reap political gains at the possible expense of the very team that executed the mission.

Billy said Aaron immediately told his mother, Karen, to delete all personal information from social media sites and to remove every reference to SEAL Team VI from her Facebook and Twitter accounts.

“The next day Aaron called his mom and said, ‘Mom, you need to take everything off your social media. There’s chatter. Our lives are in danger. Your life is in danger,’” Billy told WND.

“I never heard Aaron this concerned and worried in his entire life,” Karen told the Washington Times. “He called me and said, ‘Mom, you and Dad have to take everything down. Biden has just put a huge target on everybody.’”

Biden endangers 300 military families

Karen told Fox News, “I realized all of those families, you know, you’re talking about a community of around 300 families who were all of a sudden made targets by this administration.”

The Washington Times was scathing in its condemnation of the vice president’s revelation.

“Mr. Biden is a cynical opportunist, who will say and do anything to advance Mr. Obama’s agenda. He hung the SEALs out to dry in order to score cheap political points. He compromised a highly sensitive, covert operation that ended up costing dozens of U.S. lives.”

The Vaughns are among several SEAL Team 6 family members represented by former Reagan Justice Department attorney Larry Klayman in a lawsuit filed against Biden, former-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

The suit seeks $200 million in damages. It alleges Biden and Panetta put a “target on the backs” of the SEALs, and Karzai tipped the Taliban off about the helicopter coordinates of the Extortion 17 operation.

As WND has reported, among their many suspicions, the families question the sudden replacement of seven Afghan commandos on board the helicopter just before take-off. The seven who died in the attack are not the seven listed in the flight manifest. The families say, to this day, none of them know who those dead Afghans were.

That leads the families to wonder if the original Afghan commandos may have tipped off the Taliban as to who was on board.

Was the fate of Extortion 17 due to negligence or a set-up?

Inside Job

An inside job

Billy told WND he believed the downing of the chopper was an inside job.

“Everything points to a probable ambush.”

Was that because, if our allies knew, then our enemy knew, as well?

“Absolutely,” he said. “The Pakistanis knew, too. And we had just invaded their sovreign air space 93 days earlier to kill bin Laden.”

Some suspect the Taliban set a trap by luring the SEALs into a firefight with false information about the presence of a high-value target.

A series of factors combined to make the family believe this attack was carefully planned and not just the result of a random “lucky shot,” as the U.S. military brass had told them.

Billy said the SEALs were ferried by a Vietnam-era Chinook helicopter rather than their customary state-of-the art special forces choppers because of a shortage of those models, due to an increase in special operations ordered by the president.

‘Surge’ becomes a ‘fake war’

Billy said special operations commanders were essentially tasked with filling quotas, because the president wanted to report an increase in the “surge” requested by military brass, while actually winding down overall combat operations.

The father called it a “fake war.”

The Taliban were apparently aware of that situation and quite plausibly could have been waiting for the opportunity to target the older and much more vulnerable aircraft.

Making matters infinitely worse, before landing the Chinook, rules of engagement prevented U.S. fighters from clearing the area of potential enemies with suppressing fire because there could possibly have been civilians in the area.

Lt. Col. West said to put a Chinook into an operation that had been going on for hours with no suppressing fire was “incomprehensible.”

The Chinook was attacked at its most vulnerable moment, just as it was landing.

The U.S. military said the helicopter was hit by a “one-in-a-million” rocket-propelled-grenade lucky shot, but others suspect the craft was more likely hit by a heat-seeking missile.

Hearts and minds

Perhaps more than any other factor, Billy blamed his son’s death on the “winning hearts and minds” strategy that caused so many other dangerous factors to come into play, such as the lack of suppressing fire and the integration of less-than-trustworthy Afghans into the ranks.

“All the years Aaron was training to be a SEAL he never once told me, ‘Dad, we’re being trained to win their hearts and minds.’”

Billy said he didn’t remember the U.S. military trying to win the hearts and minds of the Nazis in World War II.

History lesson

On the the website devoted to Aaron, Billy and Karen have devoted themselves to fighting this war culturally, as opposed to kinetically, and asked him what that meant.

“It’s what Karen and I feel we must do,” he said. “The U.S.A. could win this war against the jihadists tomorrow, if we would engage them.”

Billy warned we must learn from history.

“On Dec. 7, 1941, America was not engaged against the Japanese. But the Japanese were fully engaged in all-out war against the United States.”

President Obama declared America will never be at war against Islam. But Billy believes radical Islam is at war with America.

“Islamist jihadists are fully engaged against America today,” he said. “They are operating on our soil. Our walls have been breached.”

He believes America has let its guard down since Sept. 11, 2001, and, “We have Muslim Brotherhood in our government actively working against regular American citizens.”

Billy describes jihadist infiltration in America as a clear and present danger made worse because it is being ignored.

“Today, we are not worried about the jihadists being here, and they are here among us, and they are winning everyday because we refuse to engage,” he said.

‘We could very easily lose’

He and Karen are trying to warn Americans, “We could very easily lose. We could very easily lose what our son and other men and women have given their lives’ blood to defend.”

Billy, a devout Christian, puts the emphasis on love rather than hate.

“They (American warriors) volunteered to go fight in a foreign land because they love what’s behind them more than they hate what’s in front of them.”

He closed with one last warning: “We could lose, even after all those men and women have sacrificed.”

A group of House Republicans are making a move to finally impeach Attorney General Eric Holder and remove him from office.

Eric Holder is behind Fast and Furious, has targeted journalists who challenged Obama, and has constantly trampled on the US Constitution. He should be immediately impeached.

Whether this process takes off still depends on getting more Republicans on board, grassroots activism, and getting past the party establishment. This needs all the public support it can get — please spread the word.

 

The National Review Online has reported:

A group of Republican congressmen are taking the first steps to impeach a Cabinet secretary for only the second time in American history with the target set on Attorney General Eric Holder.

Freshman congressman Ted Yoho of Florida told a local newspaper that he is hopeful that he and a handful of other lawmakers will meet with John Boehner to discuss their plans. “This will go to the speaker and the speaker will decide if it comes up or not,” Yoho said. According to his spokesperson, Yoho is not the member who is drafting the impeachment resolution.

Holder has provoked the ire of Capitol Hill Republicans over the years for his ties to a number of controversies. Last year, the House voted to hold the attorney general in contempt for his lack of cooperation in the Fast and Furious investigation. He has also faced questions from lawmakers for the Department of Justice’s seizing of phone records and e-mails from Associated Press and Fox News reporters.

Politico reported:

“It’s to get him out of office — impeachment,” Yoho said, according to the Gainesville Sun, adding “it will probably be when we get back in [Washington]. It will be before the end of the year. This will go to the speaker and the speaker will decide if it comes up or not.”

Yoho cited frustration over the botched “Fast and Furious” program – in which federal agents allowed guns to “walk” to Mexican drug cartels as part of an investigation – as one of the main motivations for the impeachment push. That sting operation failed, and weapons tied to the Fast and Furious program were found at the shooting scene when a Border Patrol agent was killed in Dec. 2010.

Omar Raschid, a Yoho spokesman, said Yoho was not actually drafting the impeachment resolution against Holder but declined to say which lawmaker was doing so.

Boehner’s officer declined to comment on the potential Holder impeachment resolution. A Justice Department spokesman also would not comment.

The House approved both civil and criminal contempt resolutions against Holder in June 2012 over his failure to cooperate with congressional subpoenas during the Fast and Furious probe. The Justice Department – as has been done in previous administrations – would not move forward on any criminal charges against Holder. DOJ and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have been locked in a lengthy legal battle as part of the civil contempt fight since that time.

The good news is that Republicans are finally starting to resist the Obama administration. The bad news is that this goes nowhere without grassroots support, and even then it has to get past John Boehner.

We’ve constantly said that John Boehner has to go, and this is a good example of why that’s still the case. Boehner is in a position where he can pretend to fight Obama most of the time — but defend him whenever it actually counts.

cold-dead-hands

Within the upper echelons of our military there still remain men and women who are committed to the fundamental laws of the land. But assuming that all members of our military will be there to support the Constitution of the United States when our nation needs them most would be a mistake.

Understand this: There are those within their ranks who would turn on their oaths and forcibly seize the very rights our Founders fought so hard to preserve without giving it a second thought.

cold-dead-hands

The following opinion piece, penned by Lt. Col. Robert Bateman, shows in stark detail exactly what we’re dealing with and argues in no uncertain terms that the American public must be disarmed in order for the United States to survive.

The ideas proposed by Lt. Col. Bateman in It’s Time to Talk About Guns and the Supreme Courtare nothing short of shocking.

This is coming from an active military commander, and though not officially sanctioned by the administration, his work is obviously a propaganda piece designed to give the gun grabber initiative direct support from military leadership.

Guns are tools. I use these tools in my job. But like all tools one must be trained and educated in their use. Weapons are there for the “well regulated militia.” Their use, therefore, must be in defense of the nation. Shooting and killing somebody because they were not “upset enough” over the loss of a college football team should not be possible in our great nation. Which is why I am adding the following “Gun Plank” to the Bateman-Pierce platform. Here are some suggestions:

1. The only guns permitted will be the following:

  • a. Smoothbore or Rifled muzzle-loading blackpowder muskets. No 7-11 in history has ever been held up with one of these.
  • b. Double-barrel breech-loading shotguns. Hunting with these is valid.
  • c. Bolt-action rifles with a magazine capacity no greater than five rounds. Like I said, hunting is valid. But if you cannot bring down a defenseless deer in under five rounds, then you have no fking reason to be holding a killing tool in the first place.

2. We will pry your gun from your cold, dead, fingers. That is because I am willing to wait until you die, hopefully of natural causes. Guns, except for the three approved categories, cannot be inherited. When you die your weapons must be turned into the local police department, which will then destroy them. (Weapons of historical significance will be de-milled, but may be preserved.)

3. Police departments are no longer allowed to sell or auction weapons used in crimes after the cases have been closed. (That will piss off some cops, since they really need this money. But you know what they need more? Less violence and death. By continuing the process of weapon recirculation, they are only making their jobs — or the jobs of some other cops — harder.)

4. We will submit a new tax on ammunition. In the first two years it will be 400 percent of the current retail cost of that type of ammunition. (Exemptions for the ammo used by the approved weapons.) Thereafter it will increase by 20 percent per year.

5. We will initiate a nationwide “buy-back” program, effective immediately, with the payouts coming from the DoD budget.

Why is the money coming from DOD budget, so it will hurt the military more WHY?

This buy-back program will start purchasing weapons at 200 percent of their face value the first year, 150 percent the second year, 100 percent the third year. Thereafter there will be a 10 year pause, at which point the guns can be sold to the government at 10 percent of their value for the next 50 years.

6. The major gun manufactures of the United States, less those who create weapons for the federal government and the armed forces, will be bought out by the United States of America, for our own damned good.

Excerpted from Esquire Magazine via Sipsey Street Irregulars

You won’t see the establishment media publishing arguments from top military leaders in support of the Second Amendment. Sadly, however, those who would take away our right to defend ourselves have been given a limitless platform to push their agenda to the masses.

Hundreds of thousands of services members, both active and retired, have put their lives on the line to uphold those rights which have made our nation great. There’s no doubt that they will do so again when the need arises.

But on the flip side of that coin are potentially hundreds of thousands of others who have no qualms about “just following orders.”

A report earlier this year from well connected philanthropist Dr. Jim Garrow claims that there is a new litmus test for military leadership:

I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks.

“The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not”.

Those who will not are being removed.

Obviously, Lt. Col. Robert Bateman passed the test with flying colors.

Being unemployed presents a variety of financial considerations, including potential taxes.

In some cases, federal tax laws could pose new costs to unemployed individuals. But in others, tax provisions could help ease, at least a bit, the financial strains of unemployment.

More On Unemployment Tax Considerations:

Pay taxes on unemployment

First, the bad news. Unemployment compensation is taxable income. A few years ago, a small amount of unemployment benefits were exempted from taxation, but that tax break has expired.

You’ll get a Form 1099-G that will tell you how much unemployment you must report on that year’s tax return. If you opted not to have taxes withheld from unemployment payments or didn’t make estimated tax payments on the amount, you’ll likely owe the Internal Revenue Service.

Married couples have another option. If your spouse has a job, cover the unemployment taxes by having your husband or wife adjust his or her withholding to cover the taxes due on your benefits.

Check EITC eligibility

The earned income tax credit, or EITC, is a tax break for workers who don’t make very much money. Because your overall earnings were reduced by your layoff, you now may be eligible for the EITC.

Unemployment benefits don’t count toward EITC eligibility, but if you earned any other income during the year, you can use that amount to calculate a possible credit claim. Also, if you are married and your spouse is working, your loss of income may now make your combined earnings eligible for the credit.

Single taxpayers can claim the EITC, but the benefit is greater for workers with dependent children.

Incomes that qualify for EITC for the 2013 tax year

  • Earnings of less than $46,227 ($51,567 if married filing jointly) in households with three or more children.
  • Earnings of less than $43,038 ($48,378 if married filing jointly) in households with two children.
  • Earnings of less than $37,870 ($43,210 if married filing jointly) in households with one child.
  • Earnings of less than $14,340 ($19,680 if married filing jointly) in households with no children.

This tax credit also is refundable. This means if you don’t owe any taxes, you’ll be able to get a refund of the excess EITC amount.

Tap retirement accounts early

In dire situations, you might be tempted to cash out a retirement plan. If you do, be prepared to pay a 10 percent early withdrawal penalty if you are not yet age 59 ½ and take money out of a traditional individual retirement account or are younger than 55 and take a 401(k) distribution.

The penalty is waived, however, if you use your IRA money to pay for unreimbursed medical expenses that total more than 10 percent of your income in 2014. Workers who receive unemployment compensation for 12 consecutive weeks can also use money from an IRA, but not a 401(k), to pay for medical insurance.

A hardship withdrawal from a workplace retirement plan is allowed penalty-free if, according to the IRS, the distribution is for “an immediate and heavy financial need.” This includes such things as medical expenses, certain educational expenses and payments necessary to prevent eviction from, or foreclosure on, your home.

Remember, however, that even if you’re able to avoid an early distribution penalty, you’ll still owe taxes on the amounts withdrawn from these retirement accounts.

Look for a job

Hang onto all your job-search receipts. Expenses for such things as employment and outplacement agency fees, resume services and job-hunting travel, both in-town and out-of-town trips, can be deducted.

There are, however, limits to job-hunt tax breaks.

You must itemize to claim job-search expenses. These costs are miscellaneous deductions, meaning they and other eligible miscellaneous expenses must amount to more than 2 percent of your adjusted gross income before you can claim them. And your job-hunt expenses must be toward employment in your current professional field.

Start your own business

If some of those job-search expenses were toward investigating a possible business of your own, they count, too. Once you are successful in starting your own company, you can claim additional business tax breaks.

Expenses related to the process of operating your business generally are deductible. Don’t forget auto expenses if you use your car for business. Keep thorough records and receipts to document all these new company costs.

If you operate your new business from your residence, you might be able to claim a deduction for your home office.

Health care costs that you as a business owner pay for yourself and your family are deductible.

The IRS is happy to let you deduct eligible business expenses because in the longer term, it’s better for everyone. Your entrepreneurial success will not only help boost your personal bottom line, but will also mean more tax money for the U.S. Treasury.

Barack is a liar and a socialist/communist?


I don’t think I’ll be marking this date on my calendar as a day of revelation…..


The LIE: well….no comment is necessary….is it?
The
COMMUNISTS in his life:
Mommy
Daddy
Step-daddy (Soetoro)
Frank Marshal Davis
Bill Ayers
Soros
and his go-to “most trusted” WH advisor Valerie Jarrett

What is the agenda of the COMMUNISTS? A huge, invasive, dictatorial, ever-taxing central government staffed by a privileged “intellectual elite”. In other words, an oligarchy.

What is the result everytime “LIBERALS” (Democratic Party) get elected?
A bigger, more-invasive, more-dictatorial WashDC with even higher taxes…run by self-proclaimed “intellectual elite” who often exempt themselves from regulations imposed on their subjects….accomplished by trampling or flat-out ignoring our restrictive Constitution.

In 1963 the Communist Party of America issued a list of goals to achieve.
As you might expect: quash religion…infiltrate the school system…gain support of minorities via redistribution of wealth…
One notable goal was to
INFILTRATE ONE OR BOTH POLITICAL PARTIES.
Since communists are far-left (leftists)….and the Republican Party was (at the time) entirely right….
where might they have gone to accomplish this goal with the best odds of success?
And while only 20% of the general populace declare themselves to be ‘liberal’….and since 72-87% of university academics consider themselves ‘liberal’….where might they have gone to find fuhrers (leaders)??

Finally: Since the American people would never knowingly embrace communism….and since a military coup would be out-of-the-question….how best could they collapse the US of A in order to make way for a new system of governance? (by that omniscient “intellectual elite’)

Debt, maybe? Monstrous, inescapable debt?


But first they would have to smash manufacturing….eliminate jobs….get the American people used to the absence of prosperity…..make large sectors of the people dependent on government for food and shelter….

That might work, huh?

I can’t imagine anything worse — well, I’m sure I can, but I think it’s just an example of how ill-conceived parts of this program are.”

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Dick Cheney called the medical device tax under Obamacare “one of the dumbest ideas” he’s ever heard.

“I worry very much about the device tax,” Cheney said at the National Press Club on Tuesday night.

“This is a new tax, a new tax that’s going to be imposed on medical devices. I think that’s one of the dumbest ideas I’ve heard of and I feel very strongly about it. I’m literally walking around proof about how great, of how innovative our healthcare system has been. I can’t imagine anything worse — well, I’m sure I can, but I think it’s just an example of how ill-conceived parts of this program are.”

The 2.3 percent tax took effect at the beginning of 2013 and is expected to raise approximately $29 billion over the next 10 years as a way to pay for the healthcare law.

A 2011 study funded by AdvaMed, an industry trade association, estimated that the medical device industry could lose 43,000 U.S. jobs due to the tax, the Fiscal Times reported. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle whose districts are particularly affected have proposed repeal of the tax.

Cheney cited the creation of stents to support his position on the medical device tax. Julio Palmaz invented the balloon expandable stent with the help of $250,000 from Phil Romano, founder of Fuddruckers and Macaroni Grill. The idea was eventually patented and bought by Johnson & Johnson.

“The initiative and incentive for them to do that and make it happen didn’t come from the government; it was something they put together themselves and now under Obamacare we’re going to tax makers of the devices,” Cheney said.

Cheney also said he was uninsured at one time but for most of his life he was covered by a Blue Cross Blue Shield plan while in public service.

“There was a time in my life when I was about 23, shortly before I got married, when I got sick, hospitalized and had no health insurance. I spent our honeymoon money on medical bills,” he said.

Cheney added that the Blue Cross Blue Shield plan “basically financed” all of his healthcare; when he left the White House, he went on Medicare.

Cheney’s comments were made during a discussion about the book he co-authored with his cardiologist Dr. Jonathan Reiner, called Heart: An American Medical Odyssey.

During the book discussion, Cheney told the audience that he wrote a letter of resignation addressed to the secretary of State in case he had a life-threatening heart attack. Cheney said he gave it to his chief legal counsel, David Spears Addington, since there was no legal way under the Constitution to remove an incapacitated vice president.

“If the need ever arose, if I ever reached a point where I was no longer able to function as the vice president, then I wanted him to present that to the president,” Cheney said, adding that Addington and Bush were the other two who knew of the letter.

Cheney noted that Addington did not keep the letter in the office since he was worried something could happen to it so he kept it at home. Cheney said Addington’s house caught fire and after his family was safe, Addington ran back in to get the letter.

Cheney was also asked if he believes he would have received a heart if he were not a former vice president.

“I went through the process that everybody else has to go through,” he said. “The normal waiting time is 10 to 12 months. I waited 20 months.”

Dr. Reiner said “there’s no way to game the system” and Cheney “absolutely” would have received a heart regardless of his VIP status.

Moderator Barbara Cochran, president of the National Press Club’s Journalism Institute, asked Cheney about his daughter Mary’s wife publicly criticizing his daughter Liz, who is running for Senate, over the issue of same-sex marriage.

“We were surprised when there was an attack launched against Liz on Facebook and wished it hadn’t happened,” Cheney said.

“It’s always been dealt with within the context of the family, and, frankly, that’s our preference.”

Cochran started to ask a follow-up question and Cheney shot back, saying, “I’ve gone as far as I’m going to go on the subject; don’t waste your time.”

Liz Cheney is running against incumbent Wyoming GOP Sen. Mike Enzi. She recently expressed support for traditional marriage on Fox News; in response, her sister Mary and her wife, Heather Poe, criticized her on Facebook.

“Liz has been a guest in our home, has spent time and shared holidays with our children, and when Mary and I got married in 2012 — she didn’t hesitate to tell us how happy she was for us,” Poe wrote on November 17. “To have her now say she doesn’t support our right to marry is offensive to say the least.”

Mary Cheney said, “Liz – this isn’t just an issue on which we disagree – you’re just wrong – and on the wrong side of history.”

Barack Obama is a man with only one core conviction.  He has, as the basic foundation of his otherwise disorganized and uncertain belief system, the irrefutable tenet that the United States, because of its European roots, has been the epitome of oppression and arrogance throughout its history.  Therefore, he is able to rationalize the need to say or do anything as the transformation of American society and the end of the pre-eminent status of the United States are his sole objectives.  He has, thus, adopted a pre-meditated schizophrenic personality wherein he comports himself as an apologist and appeaser on the international stage and a narcissistic autocrat at home.

The autocrats that ran roughshod throughout the nineteenth and twentieth century were determined to aggregate power in a central authority and to achieve an exalted position for their countries.  Barack Obama, on the other hand, is determined to denigrate and diminish the stature of his nation as he otherwise emulates the tactics of these despots.

Beyond his one immutable and core tenet, Obama wavers between acceptance of hybrid fascism with its emphasis on crony capitalism and inflexible government dominance of the individual and the economy on the one hand, and on the other post-World War II European-style socialism rather than rigid socialist/Marxist ideology.  This may be anathema to the hard core left from whence he came, but little do they understand that Barack Obama is driven by retribution not ideology.

After five years, Barack Obama has gone a long way in accomplishing much of what he set out to do, namely, the end of the pre-eminent status of the United States and setting the stage to even the score with the European descendants that dominate American society.

Barack Obama began his presidency by donning the hair shirt and groveling before the nations of world begging forgiveness for what he perceived to be the sins of America’s past.  It is America’s enemies and their loud and false protestations that frame the basis of Obama’s outreach and appeasement mindset.  This servile mindset by Barack Obama has projected an image of weakness which begets chaos, and chaos is what the international scene has become whether in the Middle East, Asia, Russia or Latin America.

Barack Obama, determined to become the Muslim world’s best friend, has instead unleashed the dogs of war in the Middle East.  With the latest agreement in hand, he has essentially told Iran they are free to develop enriched uranium through the most difficult and time-consuming stages,  and to meddle, unchallenged,  in the affairs of Lebanon and Syria as well as Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt.  He has given tacit support to Hamas and the Palestinian Authority in their confrontation with Israel as U.S. policy is to browbeat and intimidate the Israelis into accepting any agreement with them, all the while insisting on Israel’s acquiescence to Iranian nuclear capability. 

In an eerie replay of history, the Middle-East has become the Balkans of 1912-14, wherein any inadvertent action or misunderstanding could trigger not only a regional but global conflict.  Whereas the spark that initiated World War I was due to the egocentric and nationalist ambitions of many European countries, the underlying factor of any major war in the Middle East will be the abandonment of American resolve and the deliberate erosion of its economic and military power.

Beyond the Middle East, Russia and China are more emboldened than ever, openly mocking the United States and its leadership.  China has begun acting as if it were already the pre-eminent power in East Asia.  Russia has succeeded in intimidating the United States into abandoning a crucial missile defense system, thus allowing Russia a free hand to effectively reconstitute the old Soviet Union while browbeating its neighbors in Europe, and more recently becoming a major antagonist in the tinderbox that is the Middle East.

Seventy-two months ago Barack Obama officially declared his candidacy for President.  Only now are a few within the mainstream media and ruling elites in America slowly awakening from their self-induced infatuation and beginning to understand who he is.  It has become difficult to totally ignore the lawlessness, overt intimidation, demagoguery and outright lies spewed forth by Obama relative to the passage and implementation of ObamaCare.

However, this pattern has been repeated consistently over the past five years in his dealing with the American people as Barack Obama has followed in the footsteps of those 20th century despots resolved to accumulate power.

1.     Obama has been determined to keep the populace in a constant state of turmoil.  He has endorsed the escalation of vitriol aimed at inciting retaliation against the tea party movement, Republicans and conservatives.  In an effort to promote class strife, the demonization of the wealthy has never been so sustained and blatant. The incendiary charge of racism has become the default accusation directed at anyone disagreeing with Barack Obama.  As a result, racial animosity is approaching levels not seen since the 1960’s.

2.     He has created a de facto secret police through the use of the Internal Revenue Service, the EPA and other government agencies to intimidate and harass his political enemies and to browbeat the American citizens into acquiescing to his edicts and demands.

3.     He has actively bypassed Congress governing by presidential fiat whether in the case of illegal immigration, the environment, labor statutes, and presidential appointments or by simply ignoring whatever laws he chooses.

4.     He is a firm believer that no lie, in the advancement of his agenda, is too egregious to tell, no strategy to destroy one’s political enemies is out of bounds, and the creation of false crises and faux enemies is not only legitimate but essential for the implementation of his plan to transform and denigrate America.

5.     He has an unrelenting willingness to use and discard people.  Throughout his life Barack Obama has used and manipulated the gullible into being foot soldiers for his personal ambitions — whether an entire race of people (African-Americans) by playing on his skin color or the elite ruling establishment wallowing in “white guilt.”  The Hispanic population has become the latest group to be manipulated in an effort to turn them against the rest of the populace utilizing the wedge issue of amnesty for illegal immigrants.

6.     He is someone who would willingly inflict pain and suffering on the American people in order to permanently destroy his political enemies and accumulate near dictatorial power for the government he controls.  Barack Obama’s megalomania does not allow him to care a whit for the citizenry or the long-term future of the country he pushing into bankruptcy or the nation’s ability to survive in a hostile world.

Despite the debacle that is ObamaCare, there remains a stubborn unwillingness on the part of far too many to recognize what motivates Barack Obama.  Perhaps it is unfathomable to them that they could have been wrong about someone who was the epitome of their superficial ideal candidate.  Perhaps they are blind to the danger because of the belief that this country, the wealthiest and most powerful nation in the history of mankind could ever be brought to its knees by anyone. However, that someone is Barack Obama.

[H/T Western Journalism] — US military spokesman Lt. Col. J. Todd Breasseale, blew off a legitimate editor’s query concerning analysis of the “computer generated forgery” posted online by the White House as being mere nonsense.  “We can only assume that your query is not a legitimate question and is some sort of nonsensical joke,” Breasseale commented via Email to Sharon Rondeau, editor of The Post & Email.   He is calling her very reasonable inquiry nothing more than a web “absurdity”.  “We are happy to consider reality-based requests, but do not entertain absurdities from the web,” replied “Todd” in an insulting try at familiarity.

Obama's Birth Certificate

When Editor Rondeau replied, “It is absolutely not a joke,” the military mouthpiece came back with merely, “noted,” to her follow up question about the military’s possible analysis of the Obama birth certificate image posted online by someone in or representing the White House on April 27, 2011, as well as the Obama Selective Service registration. “Why has that not been done?” Rondeau asked Public Affairs officer Lt. Col. Catherine Wilkinson who evidently passed off this inquiry to Breasseale.  So much for that; our military “has remained silent” says the CT editor of The Post & Email.

Meanwhile, the 69 page affidavit of lead investigator Mike Zullo is filed as evidence in the Alabama Supreme Court’s review of findings by a lower court which also tossed inquiry into authenticity of the WH computer image. The Zullo court document reads, at point # 26: “All in attendance agreed unanimously that the WH computer image, pdf file contained anomalies that were un-explainable unless the document had been fabricated piecemeal by human intervention, rather than being copied from a genuine paper document”.  Zullo is presenting the results of months of investigation by the Sheriff Arpaio forensic team into the nine layered computer image put on the official WH website.  The team of long time forensic and law enforcement investigators, retired military members, physicians, and computer CEO’s and attorneys concluded “the certificate of live birth. . .is not a scan of an original paper birth certificate.”

The Zullo affidavit presents to the court this statement: “fabricated forgery-violation of the AZ criminal statue and the federal statues…may have taken place.”  The Arpaio team is calling for a full blown Congressional investigation as the nation awaits the decision of the Alabama Supreme Court.  At point # 35 is this lightening bolt: “It was now demonstrated beyond probable cause that the WH website document was an utter forgery.”  The forensic team suggests that crimes may involve “fraudulent creation of an official document, forgery of a governmental birth record, and deception of voters and state election commissioners across the country.”   In total, 207 points of assertion are contained in the Zullo sworn statement.  In spite of the fact that SEVENTEEN different records never have been released by President Barack Obama, (at point # 207), the military spokesman known as “Todd,” along with the mainstream media, Congress, and nationwide elected officials continue to ignore what is going on in the Alabama Supreme Court proceedings.

Perhaps most troubling is the fact that the Obama passport records have never been released to the American public, nor have the incoming INS foreign flight passenger cards for the Obama birth week of August 2, 1961, ever been found!  The Zullo investigators say in their court evidentiary document that these flight manifest identifications are “completely missing from the microfilm roll” of the INS.

Web absurdities, anomalies, a nine page computer generated forgery?  Will we every know?

During a congressional committee hearing about the constitutional limits imposed on the presidency and the implications of President Barack Obama’s disregard for implementing the Affordable Care Act as written, one expert testified that the consequences of the president’s behavior were potentially grave. He said that the precedent set by Obama could eventually lead to an armed revolt against the federal government.

On Tuesday, Michael Cannon, Cato Institute’s Director of Health Policy Studies, testified before a congressional committee about the dangers of the president’s legal behavior.

“There is one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restrains that the constitution places on the government,” Cannon said. “Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.”

“That is certainly something that no one wants to contemplate,” he continued. “If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws then they will conclude that neither are they.”

“That is a very dangerous sort of thing for the president to do, to wantonly ignore the laws,” Cannon concluded, “to try to impose obligation upon people that the legislature did not approve.”

‘These thugs are nothing but punks and cowards’

Knockout

The “Knockout Game” attacks that have made headlines across the nation over the last few weeks are being targeted by public protests and downplayed by the media.

But there’s a group that appears focused on going right to the core of the problem – the criminals themselves.

According to a report at the Afro blog, Dean Kaufert, Republican lawmaker in Wisconsin, wants faster prosecution and stiffer penalties for such offenses.

“This is not a child’s prank, this is a serious crime where innocent victims are assaulted, injured and in some instances even killed, and it should be treated that way, he said.

“We want to send any potential perpetrator of this senseless violence the message that if they do this in Wisconsin they will face serious criminal consequences, not a slap on the wrist.”

In the Knockout Game, an assailant sneaks up on an unsuspecting victim and slugs him or her as hard as he can, usually in the head. The goal is to knock the victim out with a blow, or keep hitting until the victim goes down.

Many recent cases have been documented by local TV news broadcasts posted on YouTube and in Colin Flaherty’s book “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.”

Most of the attacks have been black-on-white, part of a larger trend of black-on-white violence that also is documented in the book.

Black mobs routinely terrorize cities across the country, but the media and government are silent. Read the detailed account of rampant racial crime in “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.”

The blog also reported Hugh T. Farley, a state senator in New York, is leading a drive to crack down. His “Knockout Game Deterrent Act,” sponsored with Assemblyman Ted Tedisco, could give anyone convicted of the crime more than 20 years in prison.

He said the Knockout Game “they are nothing but punks and cowards, and if they think they’re some kind of ‘big shot’ for punching an unsuspecting elderly person or a mom then they should face ‘big man’ laws and do hard time.”

CBS in New York City reported Brooklyn residents rallied against the violence this week, with Leticia Smith of the Brown Memorial Baptist Church saying, “We are stressed out, but we refuse to be knocked out in our community.”

CNN, meanwhile, questioned whether the trend exists.

“CNN asks today whether these are just random attacks getting outsized media attention or a real trend – or whether the outsized media attention is creating the tread, as NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly warns,” said a report at Hot Air.com.

The report notes the attacks themselves “are real enough, and so are the deaths and injuries.”

“Four people have been killed in similar assaults, which have nothing in common except the modus operandi. Even Al Sharpton was moved this weekend to condemn the ‘Knockout Game,’ telling a Harlem audience, ‘We would not be silent if it was the other way around.’”

Sure you would no one from your ilk have said anything about this so quit the smoke and mirrors

On CNN, former boxer Mike Tyson said the violence made no sense.

“I just don’t know, maybe they’re just evil. There’s just some evil people,” he said.

Black mobs routinely terrorize cities across the country, but the media and government are silent. Read the detailed account of rampant racial crime in “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.”

A year ago, hardly anyone, save for cryptographers, had heard of Perfect Forward Secrecy. Now, some customers are demanding it, and technology companies are adding it, one by one, in large part to make government eavesdropping more difficult.

On Friday, Twitter will announce that it has added Perfect Forward Secrecy, after similar announcements by Google, Mozilla and Facebook. The technology adds an extra layer of security to Web encryption to thwart eavesdropping, or at least make the National Security Agency’s job much, much harder. (Update: Twitter has announced the security change on its blog.)

Until Edward J. Snowden began leaking classified documents last summer, billions of people relied on a more common type of security called Transport Layer Security or Secure Sockets Layer (S.S.L.) technology to protect the transmission of sensitive data like passwords, financial details, intellectual property and personal information. That technology is familiar to many Web users through the “https” and padlock symbol at the beginning of Web addresses that are encrypted.

But leaked N.S.A. documents make clear that the agency is recording high volumes of encrypted Internet traffic and retaining it for later cryptanalysis. And it’s hardly the only one: Iran, North Korea, and China all store vast amounts of Internet traffic. More recently, Saudi Arabia has been actively trying to intercept mobile data for Twitter and other communication tools.

The reason governments go to great lengths to store scrambled data is that if they later get the private S.S.L. keys to decrypt that data — via court order, hacking into a company’s servers where they are stored or through cryptanalysis — they can go back and decrypt past communications for millions of users.

Perfect Forward Secrecy ensures that even if an organization recording web traffic gets access to a company’s private keys, it cannot go back and unscramble past communications all at once. Perfect Forward Secrecy encrypts each web session with an ephemeral key that is discarded once the session is over. A determined adversary could still decrypt past communications, but with Perfect Forward Secrecy the keys for each individual session would have to be cracked to read the sessions’ contents.

Perfect Forward Secrecy was invented more than 20 years ago, and Paul Kocher, a leading cryptographer, put support for Perfect Forward Secrecy into the S.S.L .protocol. But companies have been reluctant to use it because it slows website and browser performance, uses resources and because — until Snowden — most consumers did not even know it existed. Unlike S.S.L. technology, there is no indication to a user that Perfect Forward Secrecy is enabled.

This tougher security is quickly becoming a must-have for Internet companies.

Earlier this week, Marissa Mayer, the chief executive of Yahoo, announced that Yahoo would introduce new security features in 2014. But, on Twitter, some consumers were quick to point out that Perfect Forward Secrecy was conspicuously absent from her blog post.

“With security, there are always the things you know you ought to do,” Mr. Kocher said in an interview. “But it’s not until you have a clear adversary that it’s much easier to justify the resources to go fix the problem.”

At Twitter, Jacob Hoffman-Andrews, a security engineer, had been pushing the company to adopt forward secrecy for some time, but did not get much support for the project until the Snowden leaks.

That showed “there really were organizations out there in the world that were scooping up encrypted data just so they could try to attack it at a large scale,” said Jeff Hodges, another Twitter software engineer. “We were like, oh, we need to actually spend some more time and really do this right.”

Actually installing and turning on the technology took only a few months, once Twitter decided to do it, both men said in an interview. That was in part because Google, an early pioneer in the technology, had worked out many of the kinks in Perfect Forward Secrecy and shared its knowledge with the security community.

Perfect Forward Secrecy does add a slight delay to a user’s initial connection to Twitter — about 150 milliseconds in the United States and up to a second in countries like Brazil that are farther away from Twitter’s servers. But the company said the extra protection was worth the delay.

Twitter said it turned on Perfect Forward Secrecy on Oct. 21, although it refrained from publicizing the change immediately to make sure there were no problems.

Twitter said it hoped that its example would prompt other companies to adopt the technology.

“A lot of services that don’t think they need it actually do,” Mr. Hodges said.
