Sage Million - Another Government Overreach?

Thursday, 17 April 2014. Sage was detained yesterday at the Costa Rican border by Panamanian Migration Officers and the Panamanian National Police for 5 hours. He was arrested and removed from the border. We believe that he is being deported to Miami, Florida and then extradited to Hawaii but as of this moment, 24 hours later, we are not certain because he has not been able to, or allowed to, contact us.

FLASHBACK 2013 - Lawmakers, Utah sheriffs want to rein in renegade BLM, Forest Service officers

Multiple rural county sheriffs from Utah testified Thursday about the abusive use of police power by Bureau of Land Management rangers or forest protection officers with the U.S. Forest Service.

They are asserting it is time to rein in the authority the agencies should have never been allowed to exercise.

Sheriffs from San Juan, Kane and Garfield counties spoke in favor of HB155, sponsored by Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab, which proposes to limit BLM rangers and forest protection officers from exercising police power over state and local laws unless someone's safety is at risk or federal contracts are in place with local police agencies.

One Man's Pee Pushes Portland To Flush 38 Million Gallons Of Water

Though they concede it's unlikely the public was endangered, officials in Portland, Ore., have decided to drain 38 million gallons of water from a reservoir after a young man was observed urinating into it on Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think it is a bit of an over-reaction, especially when you consider that there is nothing at that reservoir to prevent wildlife from urinating or defecating into that water supply, especially birds flying overhead!

Why Is No One Going To Jail?

“Why is no one going to jail?” That is what Joe Wurzelbacher asked Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) during a conference call with reporters and bloggers Tuesday night. Attorney General Eric Holder (Gohmert’s new “buddy”) is in contempt of Congress, Lois Lerner is in contempt of Congress, Hillary Clinton lied to Congress, yet nobody is in jail. There’s an outside chance Lerner could go to jail, but it’s unlikely, given that GOP leadership isn’t doing much about anything.

BLM Honcho: “It’s not MY job- but I can sure doubletalk”

This past week the nation got a glimpse of the leadership for the Wild Horse and Burro Program within the Department of Interior (DOI). NBC aired a Today program, “ Wild, but not Free,” in which Joan Guilfoyle, the Chief, responded to questions presented by journalist, Lisa Myers of NBC.

In discussion Joan Guilfoyle lauded the Bureau of Land Management within the DOI for its “balanced multiple use approach” which includes recreation, livestock, mining, wildlife, and wild horses and burros. She failed to tell the nation up to 2.9 M livestock are on BLM public lands compared to 32,000 wild horses. She failed to tell the nation 70,000 bighorn (a species of concern), 700,000 pronghorn, 1 M elk, and 20 M deer, all wildlife, are on the BLM public lands compared to 32,000 wild horses. Ms. Guilfoyle says the wild horses are overpopulated. There should only be 23,000 on our public lands. You tell me, “Is this a “balanced multiple use approach?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, rather than actually manage the land, the BLM simply takers it, then rents it back to the ranchers.

FLASHBACK 2013 - Federal Judge Rules for Property Rights, Smacks Down Abusive Feds

In an historic 104-page ruling, Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada has struck a major blow for property rights and, at the same time, has smacked down federal agencies that have been riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners. The long-awaited ruling, which had been expected before the end of last year, was finally issued at the end of May. The court case, U.S. v. Hage, has been keenly watched by legal analysts and constitutional scholars — but has been completely ignored by the major media.

Harry Reid’s Nevada family values

WASHINGTON, April 13, 2014 — One thing Harry Reid does well is live up to his moniker, “Dirty Harry.” On his side of the Democrat wing of the organized crime family in Washington, Reid has few equals as a world class bag man.

It may be pure coincidence that the army of heavily armed agents of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) are now pulling back from their positions encircling Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s family ranch, North of Las Vegas. But it’s doubtful. It may have everything to do with a new round of intense scrutiny of Reid’s use of influence to reward family members and campaign donors in lucrative development deals across the state.

Bank of America Corp: Someone From This Fraud Machine Needs To Go To Jail

Something happened last Wednesday that is eye-opening, on several levels.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the Office of Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) slammed one of the nation’s biggest banks: Bank of America Corp (NYSE:BAC).

It turns out BofA, like several other financial giants, is a billion-dollar fraud machine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The entire banking system, based on the model of a private central bank issuing all of the public currency as a loan at interest, is a fraud. Jail is too good for these modern-day slave masters!

Heart Bleed - The Internet is Alive and Well!

Like so much coverage of these security issues, however, this outcry is misdirected. In reality, the flaw gives us an excellent example of how the Internet works when it’s at its best. How Free and Open Source software is developed, how prominent and important it is, how well its development system works and why security is, in fact, simple and possible.

It also shows how our government doesn’t care about our security: ignoring major threats to the Internet and then apparently exploiting them to spy on us — for as much as two years.

These are valuable lessons demanding that we understand what really happened.

Why Only the Rich Should be Taxed

The Center for the Study of Liberal Democracy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is an institute funded by the right-wing conservative Bradley Foundation. In April of 2013, the Center announced the “Bradley Freedom Prize” essay contest, in which they asked for a response to the question: “Do the wealthiest Americans pay their fair share of taxes? What amount would be fair and why?”

The following Bradley Award-losing essay submission likely inflamed the judges of the prize; rather than focusing on taxes and wealth merely in relation to the economy – the obsession of nearly all news media reports and academic literature - it instead focuses on taxes and wealth in relation to ethics, equity, and ecology.

Nevada Rancher’s Son: Harry Reid ‘Needs To Be Kicked Out Of Office’

The son of a Nevada rancher who battled the federal government over the roundup of his cattle believes it’s time for Sen. Harry Reid to be kicked out of office.

Feds Provoke Range War Over Fees And A Turtle

Gopherus agassizii is the binomial name given to the desert tortoise, a roughly foot-long creature with a lifespan that can stretch to more than half-a-century. This turtle inhabits the Mojave Desert in America’s great southwest. On paper, the desert tortoise seems an innocuous amphibian; however, it has the curious attribute of being able provoke nearly open warfare between U.S. citizens and the federal government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article completely misses the point.

The Bundy family purchased all of that land back in 1887, and lived on and maintained it continuously since. Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, known as the Enclave Clause, limits Federal Ownership of land only to land underneath Federal Buildings and military facilities. Back in the 1930s, the BLM simply confiscated most of the Bundy land, a violation not only of the Enclave Clause but of the Fifth Amendment, which states that the government cannot take private property without just compensation, and of the Homestead Act, which says the land belongs to those who live on it and maintain it. The BLM then charged the Bundy family grazing fees to graze their cattle on what had been their land.

Then in 1993, the BLM changed the deal, demanding the grazing fees but severely restricting the number of cattle the Bundys could graze on the land, officially to protect that turtle. But we know that was a ruse, as the BLM itself has been killing those same turtles due to lack of conservation funding. It was at that point that Cliven Bundy took the case to court, where it has languished for decades.

The severe restrictions on cattle grazing would have driven the Bundys out of business and forced them off of their ranch, which appears to be the real agenda here, as all of the Bundy neighbors have already been driven off of their ranches by BLM "tinkering" and Bundy is the last one left.

There are several motives at work here.

First there is the BLM itself, which wants to lease out fracking contracts and not share the money with the land's rightful owners.

There is also gold on that land and Glencore Xstrata, the company founded by financier Marc Rich (who was strangely pardoned by President Bill Clinton before he went to trial for illegal financial dealings), is already in negotiations for the mining rights, not with the Bundy family. but with the cash-strapped US Government.

One of Harry Reid's top (illegal) donors, Harry Whittemore, has plans to commercially develop that land, and the US Government has already announced a new exit from the nearby highway to serve that project.

And yet another finger in the Bundy's stolen pie is Rory Reid, Harry Reid's son, who is representing ENN Energy Group to obtain some of that land for a solar power project.

And this guy thinks it is all about turtles?!?

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old.

The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to the Social Security agency. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century.

Armed fed raid prompted by safety rules

Critics of the way federal agencies in Montana handled a recent raid on a company that recycles brass for ammunition are calling for an investigation.

Government officials have declined to respond to allegations that armed officers with weapons drawn locked up USA Brass employees, confiscated their cell phones and otherwise violated their rights.

The incident in Bozeman, Mont., drew little attention from media.

To protect against lead contamination, USA Brass had installed filters and added training. The company had passed a subsequent inspection before officers from the Environmental Protection Agency and FBI arrived, apparently with guns drawn.

The story has spread on the Internet among bloggers and Second Amendment advocates. A blog called Defensive Handguns described the raid this way: “Obama’s storm troopers raided USA Brass in Bozeman.”

Microsoft And Sony Double Down On Patent Trolling; Dump More Cash Into Intellectual Ventures

There was a time when Bill Gates said:

"If people had understood how patents would be granted when most of today's ideas were invented and had taken out patents, the industry would be at a complete standstill today... A future start-up with no patents of its own will be forced to pay whatever price the giants choose to impose."

And, now, via Intellectual Ventures and its own patent holdings, Microsoft seems to be trying to make sure Gates' prediction is a reality. It all fits in to the same paradigm we've observed for years. When you're young, you innovate. When you're old, you litigate. Microsoft appears to have given up on innovation, but is ramping up on litigation, and re-investing in patent trolling via Intellectual Ventures is merely the latest step.

After we win: 3 education policy proposals: Truth/facts, Love/community, Lifelong virtue

*hyperlinks live at source*
Education builds the future, and as you who read alternative media know so well, is a lifelong upgrade in virtue.

Alternative media is engaged in an education contest. We educate the public that US “leadership” is an oligarchy immersed in “Big Lie” crimes centering in war, money, and media (also in ~100 other crucial areas). The oligarchy “educates” through “leaders” that their actions are legal, wise, and in the public’s best interest. The oligarchy’s media controls textbooks, and are a major source of their propaganda.

To be clear: the above links (among work of hundreds in alternative media) easily explain, document, and prove a “1%” criminal oligarchy engage in psychopathic crimes that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions. The education contest is not about what the objective facts are, but the art and science of communication for public recognition of those facts.

Earlier this month, attorney James Kidney, who was retiring from the Securities and Exchange Commission, gave a widely reported speech at his retirement party.

Kidney, who joined the SEC in 1986, had tried and failed to bring charges against more executives in the agency’s 2010 case against Goldman Sachs. He said the SEC has become, quote, "an agency that polices the broken windows on the street level and rarely goes to the penthouse floors. ...

EXCLUSIVE: Evidence of BLM’s Deadly Abuse of Animals Taken from Bundy Ranch

The US federal government evoked the fury of animal right groups over their shocking treatment of cattle at the Bundy Ranch, and may soon face legal charges of severe animal abuse in Clark County, Nevada.

Federal agency’s treatment of residents at the Bundy Ranch this past week included tasering, beating, wrongful arrest, threatening residents with attack dogs, and mobilizing a federal paramilitary force whose barrels were trained on US citizens, all in all, spending at least $3 million of tax payer money in an effort to sell stolen cattle over state lines in Utah and California. A legal argument has also been made that the US Department of Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is now guilty of racketeering under the federal RIC) statute (Racketeer Influenced and Corruption Organizations). If all that wasn’t enough, evidence is now emerging regarding pattern of extreme cruelty and abuse, and suspected culling of animals from the Bundy Ranch.

As if the Obama administration’s purchase of more than 2 billion rounds of ammunition, and nearly 3,000 urban tanks, along with their unprecedented (and highly illegal) domestic spyingprogram was not enough to convince you that the federal government is about to suspend the Constitution once and for all, the man who once vowed to run “the most transparent administration in history” has just rather inexplicably, ordered the U.S. Army to seize every Apache attack helicopter currently in use by the National Guard.

In all, the Defense Department will confiscate 192 Apaches from National Guard units around the country and give them to the active duty Army.

Ron Paul’s nonprofit refuses to disclose list of donors to the IRS

The United States Federal Reserve is usually the government office finding itself most often in the crosshairs of former Texas congressman Ron Paul, but now the longtime lawmaker is setting his sights on another agency: the Internal Revenue Service.

Paul’s relentless efforts to abolish the Fed have without a doubt been a hallmark of the 78-year-old libertarian’s career in Congress, but recent attempts from the IRS to compel a nonprofit organization run by the former presidential hopeful for details about its contributors has pushed him to pursue yet another fight with the federal government.

Last week, Paul signed his name to an email sent to supporters acknowledging that the IRS has billed his nonprofit, Campaign for Liberty, for failing to hand over the names of donors when the group filed its taxes for the year 2012.

Issa Launches Federal Investigation Into Obama/Reid Involvement in BLM Land Grab

While Cliven Bundy’s decades long battle against the federal government over grazing rights on his Nevada ranch continues, news from the nation’s capital has confirmed that Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has launched a full federal investigation into President Obama and Senator Harry Reid’s involvement in the attempted land grab by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

Obamacare’s Top Five Middle Class Tax Hikes

President Obama and his Democrat allies often claim they want to raise taxes only on those Americans they deem “rich.” What they forget to mention is that among the 20 new or higher taxes in Obamacare, at least seven directly hit families making less than $250,000 per year.

Court: Choose between constitutional rights

Quinn was targeted by police because his son – who was suspected of possessing drugs – lived in the same home. His son was absent, and police records reveal officers knew that fact when they broke into Quinn’s home in a no-knock, SWAT-team style forced entry.

Rutherford said the decision lets stand a lower court ruling that “essentially makes lawful gun ownership and possession grounds for police to evade the protections afforded by the Fourth Amendment and improperly penalizes and limits the Second Amendment right to bear arms.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more - we had no awareness of the real situation... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward." -- Aleksandr I.

Glaring Q.E. Failure Spotted

Money Velocity continues to fall rapidly in both the USEconomy and that of Canada, reaching 50-year lows in the Untied States. The indication is failure in monetary policy, as hyper inflation has killed capital on an extensive basis. The capital destruction is in its fourth year, probably having reached critical mass. Compared and contrasted with fast rising money supply, the systemic failure is obvious to conclude. The exception is to morons, Wall Street junkies, Big Bank criminal elite, and USGovt hacks. The fast decline in Money Velocity means that it is not moving in the body economic. The reason is simple. The blood system is contaminated with the USDollar, a toxic currency with no backing in a hard asset. The new money is toxic currency under phenomenal debasement by its own steward, the USFed itself. They redouble their harmful policy instead of abandoning it.

This coming from a publication which has already hurled more than 100 front page propaganda poop-pies at Russia, in 2014 alone; falsely accusing Putin of everything from killing stray dogs, to suppressing "dissidents", to fomenting unrest in Crimea, to deploying troops on the Eastern Ukrainian border to threatening Europe, to using proxies to "take over airports" etc. How's that for "truth bending", "misinformation", "overheated rhetoric" and "conspiracy theories"?

Before that, it was the Department of Agriculture requesting 320,000 rounds. More recently, the Department of Homeland Security raised eyebrows with its request for 450 million rounds — at about the same time the FBI separately sought 100 million hollow-point rounds.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also requested 46,000 rounds.

BLM fracking racket exposed! Armed siege and cattle theft from Bundy ranch really about fracking leases

The Bureau of Land Management says its 200-man armed siege of the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada is all about protecting an "endangered tortoise." But a Natural News investigation has found that BLM is actually in the business of raking in millions of dollars by leasing Nevada lands to energy companies that engage in fracking operations.

This document from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology(1) shows significant exploratory drilling being conducted in precisely the same area where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870's. The "Gold Butte" area is indicated on the lower right corner of the document (see below), and it clearly shows numerous exploratory drilling operations have been conducted there.

What's also clear is that oil has been found in nearby areas and possibly even within the Gold Butte area itself.

Is Democrat Harry Reid Behind the Obama BLM’s Attempted Bundy Ranch Land Grab?

Connections to Reid, a lifetime government employee who has mysteriously become a multi-millionaire, could run even deeper than his inexperienced former aide being appointed to head the BLM. Reid, who just weeks ago was forced to return campaign money funneled to his granddaughter, may have wanted to intimidate and harass Mr. Bundy off his land in order to line the pockets of himself and his son, Rory Reid.

5 Terrifying Ways Police Can Legally Screw You Over

Although Hollywood likes to tell us otherwise, being a cop is far from Lethal Weapon-style no-holds-barred crime solving. Real police officers operate under a thick book full of rules and regulations intended to protect the rights of people like you.

It would be easy, then, to assume that you're safe from getting screwed over as long as you obey the law, or at least keep your crimes minor and private. You'd be wrong. In America, the courts have again and again given the police all sorts of leeway to royally screw up your life for almost no reason at all.

Marine Le Pen’s Front National leads the latest IFOP poll for the European elections next month at 24pc.

Ukraine SITREP April 15, 18:30 EST update 1 (Ukrainian civil war day 1)

The Ukrainian military is told that it has to stop "terrorists". Regardless of whether they believe it or not, the Ukrainian commanding officers are more or less willing to execute that order. What they seem to be unwilling to do is kill many civilians or, even less so, take a city by force. So they stop in the outskirts and conduct very tense and unpleasant dialog with very hostile and suspicious civilians.

The Ukrainian security services are probably more willing to shoot civilians, but they seem to be really weary of entering the rebel cities, and I can't blame them. Unlike most of the barricades around the cities which are manned with civilians (including women and senior folks), some barricades and buildings inside the city are defended by armed men, some definitely with military experience, and supported by many civilian demonstrators. Any SBU force seen shooting civilians risks being killed by a lynch mob.

Fighting back against corporatocracy and Big Monopolies

"Freedom" and "democracy" are useful words, but very bankrupt: useful because they serve to advance imperial/corporate agendas, bankrupt because they are empty vessels perennially co-opted.

When illegal coups are orchestrated to overthrow democratically elected governments in Venezuela, Honduras, Ukraine or elsewhere, the lies of freedom and democracy are seamlessly attached to the criminal acts.

"Freedom" and "democracy" are still cloaking, tacitly or overtly, mass murder and genocide in Iraq, at this moment.

As long as the masses are fooled, conquest and regime change, not democracy and freedom, are enabled and perpetuated. Illegal coups and wars of aggression are about imperial control, setting up puppet dictators and the imposition of neoliberal economic business models for the corporate extensions of the invading nations.

Are the USDA and scientists around the world wrong in their conclusion about failure to yield? No.

Agro-economists have shown repeatedly that the best-yielding, most-affordable crop varieties, to "feed the world", are those derived from conventional non-GMO hybrids (U.N Commission on Trade and Development).

BLM Attempting to Seize 90,000 Acres of Texas Ranchers' Land!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation." -- Fifth Amendment to the Constitution

Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, known as the Enclave Clause, limits Federal Ownership of land only to land underneath Federal Government buildings and military bases. The Tenth Amendment prohibits the Federal Government from presuming a greater right to grab land for turtles, fracking, or other corporate endeavor.

So the BLM is acting unconstitutionally and illegally, and citizens have a legal right, under the United States Supreme Court ruling in John Bad Elk vs United States, to resist such illegal activity up to and including the use of lethal force.

US Is an Oligarchy Not a Democracy, says Scientific Study

"Despite the seemingly strong empirical support in previous studies for theories of majoritarian democracy, our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts. Americans do enjoy many features central to democratic governance, such as regular elections, freedom of speech and association, and a widespread (if still contested) franchise. But, ..." and then they go on to say, it's not true, and that, "America's claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened" by the findings in this, the first-ever comprehensive scientific study of the subject, which shows that there is instead "the nearly total failure of 'median voter' and other Majoritarian Electoral Democracy theories [of America].

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The USA has a government of the money junkies, for the money junkies, and by the money junkies. We the People have absolutely no power over policies whatsoever.

We have a kabuki-like process of elections which mean absolutely nothing in terms of bettering the lives of working Americans; but at the end of the day, those who are ultimately vetted, then allowed to run, are simply tools of the oligarchs.

The only people who count to those who wind up elected, to any level of government, are those who fund election cycles in return for certain "favors" their businesses need.

And if you have a hard time wrapping your head around that, just remember what happened to the Patriot Act, where vaccine makers became held harmless and were indemnified against any actions by people who were injured by their vaccines.

Pretty sweet, isn't it; if you are a vaccine maker, of course. And the burden of proof is so intense that it is very rare that a case of injury ever makes it to the so-called vaccine court.

People dying, and getting maimed for life in wars, ultimately for private profit, do not matter in the greater scheme of things to those who rule, and are completely expendable. Please do remember that the next time this country is exhorted to the next war or wars, which will probably go at least as well as did the war in Iraq and Afghanistan for the people of the countries we are going to "liberate" next.

The older I get (and I turn 65 next month), the more viscerally Quaker I have become about war.

Having lived through Vietnam War, acutely remembering those of my college friends who didn't come back, or emotionally, didn't come back all the way, I see war as the lousiest possible option. Good faith negotiations, done with integrity, is always preferable to war.

And remember: it is never the children of the financially elite who get put in harm's way; it's always "other people's kids".

Police begin spying on every citizen in real-time

A retired Air Force veteran named Ross McNutt and his Ohio-based company, Persistent Surveillance Systems, persuaded the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to use his surveillance technology to monitor Compton’s streets from the air and track suspects from the moment the snatching occurred.

The system, known as wide-area surveillance, is something of a time machine – the entire city is filmed and recorded in real time. Imagine Google Earth with a rewind button and the ability to play back the movement of cars and people as they scurry about the city.

“We literally watched all of Compton during the time that we were flying, so we could zoom in anywhere within the city of Compton and follow cars and see people,” McNutt said. “Our goal was to basically jump to where reported crimes occurred and see what information we could generate that would help investigators solve the crimes.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The short answer is, such surveillance, even against the most innocent of American people, will not end, either soon...or peacefully.

The video you can view online of the law enforcement officers forcing the people out of their homes in Watertown, Massachusetts reminds me of being herded off the prison bus into the federal penitentiary at Terre Haute with rifles and shotguns pointed at us. You know at that point that America is not what it says it is, and you are not who you thought you were.

Tony Blair, George W. Bush and David Cameron: Hi-jacking God?

When Tony Blair was in residence, according to the diaries of his former communications director, Alastair Campbell, before the illegal invasion of Iraq, for which Blair's Downing Street offices produced fantasy, fictional, false justifications, the then Prime Minister was guided by his faith and regularly spoke to "his Maker." Blair may have "spoken" - but, as ever, he clearly didn't listen.

Proverbs (6:16-19) rules on six personality traits his "Maker" abhors and seven that are an abomination to Him: "Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord ..." Blair ticks every box, shattering any claim to his trumpeted Christian principles.

False witness is also slammed by King Solomon and in Matthew (15:18-20) Jesus condemns false testimony as defiling to any person.

Utah cops warrantlessly search prescription drug records of 480 emergency personnel

Utah law enforcement officials searched, without a warrant, the prescription drug records of 480 public paramedics, firefighters and other personnel to try to figure out who was stealing morphine from emergency vehicles.

This type of snooping doesn't require crypto-cracking technology or other National Security Agency spying tools disclosed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. All it took was a law enforcement official's hunch in this case to search every member of the Unified Fire Authority's prescription records.

The American Civil Liberties Union on Monday derided the 2013 dragnet search as "shocking" and called it a "disregard for basic legal protections" to provide law enforcement with "unfettered" access to such private data.

Barack Obama and the BLM Land Grab: The Evil Agenda of Communist Takeover

My Father used to tell me that the president was a figure-head and that he could do nothing without Congress.

Dad was wrong.

Though there may have been a time when this was somewhat true, during the Barack Obama presidency this theory has been ripped to shreds.

Harry Reid and the Bureau of Land Management are easy targets in the Cliven Bundy land grab case but, as usual, there are higher powers that are pulling the strings. The White House was quiet during this incident, which should have been our first clue that Barack Obama was involved and simply attempting to avoid the bad public relations that might result.

Understanding Modern Israel: Why It Is Driving The World Towards Madness

Can you have democracy for only one carefully-defined group? Can you have democracy without the restraints of a Bill of Rights upon an abusive majority? Can you have democracy which holds millions in perpetual isolation and subjects them to countless abuses? Can you have democracy where you prefer dealing with juntas and kingdoms to democratic governments in neighboring states? Can you have democracy which constantly threatens war on those who do not threaten it? Can you have democracy which conducts witch-hunts on a grand scale, just re-naming the witches as terrorists? Can you have democracy which interferes in the internal affairs of other democratic states?

Sen. Reid on Cattle Battle: "It's not over"

Senate majority leader Harry Reid hasn't been very vocal about the cattle battle showdown in recent days, but says "it's not over."

Reid tells News4's Samantha Boatman his take on the so-called cattle battle in southern Las Vegas. "Well, it's not over. We can't have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it's not over," Reid said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The law is not on the side of Harry Reid, or his donor Harvey Whittemore, who has plans to commercially develop that land the Bundy ranch is currently on. Nor is the law on the side of Rory Reid, Harry's son, who was hired by Chinese energy firm ENN Energy Group to obtain the land for a solar power plant, purchasing $38 million worth of public lands for just $4.5 million in a sweetheart deal.

The Bundy Family purchased all of that land in 1877, only to have it seized by the government in the 1930s. This violated Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, known as the Enclave Clause, which limits the Federal Government to owning land ONLY for Federal Buildings and military installations, NOT seizing millions of acres of private and public lands to be sold to corporations or pledged as collateral on out-of-control government borrowing.

Then there is the Homestead law, which says ownership of the land belongs to those who have lived on the land and developed it, which the Bundys have done in an unbroken chain since 1887.

The BLM does not have legal jurisdiction as the land in question is actually under state control.

So Mr. Reid does not in fact have the law on his side. He just wants the land for his political cronies and cares not about the rightful owners. The Bundys and the patriots standing with him are defending the Constitutional rights of all Americans against a central tyrannical government which operated outside of the legal authority granted to it by the Constitution for decades. That Constitution IS the original Contract With America, and the Federal Government is lawful and legitimate only when it complies with the rules and restrictions We The People set forth in that document.

UPDATE: I posted the above comment to the NBC website, and it is nowhere to be seen, although one other comment refers to it. So it seems that NBC decided that the fact that the Federal Land Grab is a violation of the Constitution is not something their readers need to know!

Judge: Feds can hide rationale for killing U.S. citizen

A Bay Area federal judge says the Obama administration can keep secret a memo spelling out the legal rationale for a 2011 drone attack in Yemen that killed a U.S. citizen and alleged terrorist mastermind.

The Justice Department was entitled to withhold the memo on the grounds of national security and lawyer-client confidentiality, Chief U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken of Oakland said Friday.

Although U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and other Obama administration officials have made public statements justifying drone strikes, Wilken said none of them was specific enough for her to rule against the government's claim of secrecy and require officials to disclose the legal rationale for the Yemen attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow, the Obama administration must be ecstatic about that: now, they have an "open season" to kill any Americans, even here in the mainland, they want to kill for any reason, and do not have to provide a rationale for these murders.

Wave goodbye to due process, because this Judge has just well and truly flushed it down the drain.

People with kids and skills, get the hell out of this country now: your window for leaving is closing exponentially.

Who owns 'public' land?

Nearly 100 ranchers gathered in Farmington, N.M., last weekend to listen to Wayne Hage and his wife, former Congresswoman Helen Chenoweth-Hage, explain how the “public” land on which their cattle graze may not be “public” at all. The U.S. Court of Federal Claims found, in Hage v. United States, that the ranchers, not the federal government, may be the true owners of the property referred to as “public” land.

Did the Department of Homeland Security Just Admit that the Government Knew about the Heartbleed Bug?

Matt Stoller tweets:

DHS says #Heartbleed didn’t affect government websites. That is… peculiar.

Perhaps there is an innocent explanation … The government doesn’t use OpenSSL on its websites?

Nope … Security firm Codenomicon – which discovered the Heartbleed virus – reports:

You are likely to be affected either directly or indirectly. OpenSSL is the most popular open source cryptographic library and TLS (transport layer security) implementation used to encrypt traffic on the Internet. Your popular social site, your company’s site, commercial site, hobby site, sites you install software from or even sites run by your government might be using vulnerable OpenSSL.

Did DHS just unintentionally admit that the government knew about Heartbleed years ago and patched its own websites … without telling the tech community about it?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More than likely the NSA compromised OpenSSL just as it has compromised every publicly available encryption system including RSA. So, the government exposed us all to cyber-criminals just so they could look inside your web traffic and steal your business secrets or find information you can be blackmailed with.
