Surveillance Society – You’re Living It!
Flash back to a December 16, 2005 article in
the New York Times in which James Risen and Eric Lichtblau disclosed that
the Bush era spy order, which ultimately led to the 2008 FISA Amendment
Act, was signed in 2002. This
virtual dragnet of customer communications involved AT&T and Verizon,
Sprint Nextel and others. One
company that didn’t turn over records, Qwest, says it was approached
about turning over their customer information in February 2001…a full
six months prior to the tragic September attack that spurred several
pieces of legislation to supposedly save the United States from terrorist
Anyone interested can get an overview of our
country’s surveillance background by watching
a clip from the widely acclaimed documentary, Washington, You’re
The Bush’s wiretapping and data mining was
disturbing, but, at the time, most American’s were scared because of the
September 11 attacks. Is it
possible more people didn’t recognize the threat to our liberty, or were
willing to ignore it, because the population believed it made them safe?
Those Bush Era wiretaps were more than
illegal; they were unconstitutional.
Judge Vaughn Walker explains in his decision in Tash Hepting vs
“Accordingly, AT&T’s alleged actions here violate the
constitutional rights clearly established in Keith. Moreover, because
‘the very action in question has previously been held unlawful,’
AT&T cannot seriously contend that a reasonable entity in its position
could have believed that the alleged domestic dragnet was legal.” Pg 68
Judge Walker was
referring to the 1972 Keith Decision, United States v US District Court, a
landmark case unanimously upheld by the Supreme Court.
In the decision, the Supreme Court upheld the District Court for
the Eastern District of Michigan’s findings that wiretapping was
unconstitutional and violated the Fourth Amendment.
This also proves that listening in on other people’s
conversations was going on way back in 1972.
Judge Anna Diggs Taylor
also found no constitutional basis for the spy program.
She stated that the program violated the existing Foreign
Intelligence Surveillance Act, which was already in place to protect the
population from an out of control Executive Branch.
Judge Taylor further found that the Bush spy program violated the
separation of powers, and the United States population’s rights to both
privacy and freedom of speech. The
Sixth Circuit Court answered a government appeal and stayed Judge
The Bush Administration was forced, then, to
pass an amendment to FISA, granting retroactive immunity to the telecoms
that, willingly and without the warrants required, turned over their
Today’s NSA/Verizon relationship is much
like the Bush NSA/Telecom fiasco. The
NSA required Verizon to hand over information on every single
communication throughout Verizon’s network.
The day after his NSA/Verizon bombshell, Greenwald exposed another.
Through its previously secret PRISM program, according to
Greenwald, the NSA has been collecting information from users of Apple,
Google, Facebook, Skype, Microsoft, Youtube and others, some
communications as early as 2007.
During the Bush wiretapping fiasco, then-Deputy Director of National
Intelligence, Donald Kerr, told the US Population it would have to
redefine privacy. Privacy,
according to Kerr, can no longer mean anonymity, but that “government
and businesses properly safeguard people’s private communications
and financial information”, according to the Associated Press.
The question begging an
answer is, “If government has now taken it upon itself to safeguard our
private communications and financial information, who is going to protect
us from the government, the members of which take an oath to defend the
Constitution?” After all, two separate judges found the spy program, under
Bush, to be unconstitutional. And,
how does our “Constitutional Expert,” President Obama, not see the
unconstitutionality of his spy program?
The more interesting part
about the Obama and Bush spy programs, since one seems to be an extension
of the other, is that it’s not the first time portions of the United
States general population have found themselves being surveilled.
In his Katz decision,
“…what he seeks to
preserve as private, even in an area accessible to the public, may be
What should be clear by now, and not just
with those labeled “conspiracy theorists,” is that that this country
has become a surveillance society, and it has been as far back as the
1960’s, at the least. Something else well established is that the United States
government is willing to break the law that governs them, the
Constitution, in order to spy on the United States population.
Is it any wonder that people refer to the present conditions of the
United States as a 1984 Society?

Darned “Conspiracy Theorist” Were Right Again!!!
Columbia, MO – June 7,
2013 - So, you label me a “conspiracy theorist” and make fun of what I
say, calling me other names, too, like wacko, nut job, tin-foil-hat
wearing idiot. Can you hear
me now…do you believe me now? Glenn Greenwald’s breaking
bombshell Wednesday exposing the NSA on-going collection of
“information on all telephone calls” in Verizon’s vast network
should be your wake-up call. Greenwald
divulged that the massive data collection effort started on April 25 and
ends July 19. And, while
Greenwald says he doesn’t know if Verizon is the only telecom under the
NSA’s spell, a flip back in time will tell us that they probably
Way back when I had my battle
with AT&T over the giant telecom’s sincere lack of integrity and
Congress passed the treacherous FISA Amendment Act, all I could think was,
“What they’ve done is now totally in the open now.
They will never stop.” And
I was right! Scores of people
tried to warn our country that the government was “listening in” or
“gathering the communications” of US citizens, but media and
government apologists promptly accused everyone involved in the warning as
“kooks” and “conspiracy theorists,” in their efforts to discredit
the lot of us. Well…how do
you like us now? We’ve been
telling you the truth all along and you’ve been writing us off…
And, now, the media is
STILL in denial, as Anderson Cooper reports about the program AND the fact
that government is sucking up your social media info, as well, saying
it’s a “highly classified, never before disclosed” program…BULL!
We so-called “conspiracy theorists” have BEEN disclosing it for
a LONG TIME! The ones
“never before disclosing” it are people like Anderson Cooper!
Also, they keep talking
about the “secret court” like it’s still a secret.
We exposed that egregious entity in Washington,
You’re Fired way back in 2008!
AND, for those at home, that film exposes the tyrannical USA
PATRIOT Act and SEVERAL pieces of Bush-era right-stripping legislation
that were handed over to the Obama Administration.
I have a few things on my
mind right now.
First, does Verizon have
ANY customers left? I can
guarantee if I were one, I would not be for long…’cause this is
EXACTLY why I left AT&T!
Second, the Democrats can
have NOTHING bad to say about the Bush Administration.
In fact, they should be thanking him.
And, the Republicans absolutely CANNOT trounce all over the Obama
Because the Bush Administration is the one that handed over all
this spy power. Congratulations
those who were tired of the Bush Administration…You voted for Obama and
got WAY Bush then you EVER dreamed possible from someone other than a
Bush! Let’s see how you work your way out of this one!
Third, you have also
demonized us for being “truthers,” but we have been telling the truth,
so how does that one work now?
Fourth, Jim Acosta is
saying that people really angry over their phone records being turned
over…REALLY!?! Where were you people back in 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008?
Why was it ok then but not now!?!
Plus, I have a personal bone to pick with Acosta.
Back in late 2009, CNN and Jim Acosta aired a virtual hit piece on
the “Patriot Movement” and our concerns over our government building
of detention centers. Acosta went on national television, with a straight face,
claiming there was no proof our government was doing any such thing.
If he bothered to look into the truth, he would know he was wrong.
That’s okay, though, because I straightened him out by exposing
what he refused to in a
little article of my own, PLUS, we exposed the FEMA
camps for them, since they wouldn’t do it.
Man, I am tired of doing their job for them and not getting paid
Last, but not least, I
need SOMEONE to explain to me just what I will be called now, because
“conspiracy theorist,” as described by the media, government and their
lackeys, just does not fit…so PLEASE, someone, probably at CNN or
another mainstream media outlet, enlighten me…I need to know who I am!
Common Sense Needed Concerning Jolie
While, technically NOT
the pharmaceutical industry, the medical industry and pharmaceutical
businesses scratch each other’s backs and promote and protect each
other, even to the detriment of the patients they both so diligently say
they are in business to help. And, as covered in Peddling
Influence, media uses spokesmen and women familiar to the public,
often times politicians, actors and actresses, or athletes, to sell their
wares and ideas. Given this
bit of information, who better to scare the public into mutilating
themselves without cause than Jolie?
After all, she appeals to EVERYONE…men love her and women wish
they looked like her…heck, I’ve even heard women say they’d “do
her.” She is the perfect
go-to person for something as outlandish as surgically removing perfectly
healthy tissue from your body!
of why she chose the double mastectomy route is classic.
She used concern for her children and the desire to be with them
for as long as she can, plus the ever-woman-empowering “my body, my
choice” declarations to push the hype. Mike Adams, of Natural News, calls
all of this out as just what it appears to be, a VERY clever PR
campaign by a company bent on securing profits.
There are a couple of
things, though, that nearly everyone has missed.
This part takes common sense, which seems to be sorely lacking
First, in Jolie’s
op-ed, she cites the WHO statistic that 458,000 people die of breast
cancer each year. According
to the US government’s Census
site, the world’s population is over 7 Billion.
If you do the math, you will find that a mere .0065 PERCENT (YES!
FAR less than 1%!!!) of the world’s population dies from breast
cancer. Lets just ramp this
up a bit. Make it “look” better for them.
Cancer Fact Sheet tells us that in 2008, 7.6 Million deaths were
attributed to all cancers. Going
with the WHO reported figure for breast cancer deaths and the same for ALL
cancer deaths, this would mean that breast cancer is responsible for only
6% of all cancer related deaths. Is
this really enough to scare people into such drastic procedures?
Second, Jolie did not have cancer. Yes, her mother died from cancer, but does that automatically mean she will get it? Also, there are many studies in preventative measures. PLUS, and this one is the kicker for me, she has so much money that she literally could have ANY TREATMENT SHE WANTED, should she actually GET cancer, unlike the rest of us. Should she actually get cancer, she could have her breasts removed, if she decided that was the thing to do. OR, she could visit the Burzynski Clinic in Texas, try the all natural Gerson Therapy, she could go to Mexico for the Hoxsey treatment, she could follow the inspiring guidelines revealed in the wonderful film Forks Over Knives, The point is, she did not have to mutilate herself and go public, thereby pushing people everywhere to even consider the same course of action, because she has this gene marker.
The point is, there are preventative options if you find you have the potential for the disease and there are alternative options for cancer treatment. AND, given what I know from my research for Peddling Influence, about how the Public Relations industry works and how big business manipulates the population through the mainstream media purely for profit, it’s no surprise to me that this is playing out as a master ploy to get people to consider destroying healthy tissue in the name of prevention. Why? Follow the money! There is WAY more money in diagnosing and performing the procedure than there is in simple natural prevention. Just sayin’!
Obama, Please Save Face and Just Resign…
Benghazi has been falling
apart for some time, but this past few days have proven extremely damning.
Who knew what, when and who rewrote it are BIG issues right now,
along with exactly why help was so elusive, when it was known help was not
far. Also, the report that
Ambassador Chris Stevens was well liked in Libya should, at the very
least, draw out some questions. Puzzled?
You should be!
The IRS and DoJ stuff is
VERY interesting. Obama’s
IRS and DoJ basically handed over proof of what the TEA Party and Patriots
have been decrying as the intrusive nature of big government and the
unfair tax practices. For
YEARS, Ron Paul supporters, the ORIGINAL TEA Partiers (Remember, Taxed
Enough Already!?!) and independent Patriots have been exposing the
nefarious overreaching, self-indulgent nature of government and warning
people what can and probably will happen if certain conditions are right.
Well, to use Jon Stewart’s own words, the IRS and the DoJ have
quite literally “shifted the burden of proof from the tin foil-behatted
to the government.”
And what’s going on
when the DoJ is scooping up months of communication on a reported twenty
different lines at the Associated Press, as well as telling the nation
they don’t need warrants to gather your e-mails and social media
postings? Has Eric Holder
lost his mind? Holder, and by
extension the entire Obama Administration, needs to be briefed on former
Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart’s ruling in Katz vs. US, which was
exposed in the film, Blood
of Patriots, a film about our Bill of Rights.
Stewart ruled that The Fourth Amendment protects people, not just
their property, and that protection extends to public places, because
“what he seeks to preserve as private, even in an area accessible to the
public, may be constitutionally protected.”
Strictly speaking, us
“tin-foil-hat-wearing conspiracy theorists” have been trying to tell
people this is going on for YEARS, and we weren’t playing favorites.
We were exposing the Bush Administration, as well.
And, we have taken our share of punches, demonized, and put
on lists by the likes of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
(Yes, we have been a proud member of this list for years!)
While the nefarious wiretapping
scandal of the century happened under the Bush Administration, leading
to the ultra egregious FISA Amendment Act, giving retroactive immunity to
illegal Telecom activity, this particular wiretapping episode is really
quite humorous. (Yes, it
should still be TOTALLY illegal!) First
of all, what is the DoJ looking for that they feel the need to compromise
journalist/source confidentiality and secondly, did the Associated Press
REALLY think they were immune to the out-of-control government?
Well…if that don’t
beat all! This week, an
interesting piece of news surfaced that should have buddies Dick Morris
and Sean Hannity repeating their now-infamous 2009 G20 confession about
how right “conspiracy theorists” have been.
This time it’s about a whole different topic, and, if Morris and
Hannity are truly journalists, they, along with all other mainstream
press, need to be extremely vocal about their revelation.
In their 2009 release, Camp
FEMA, independent filmmakers William Lewis and Gary Franchi
exposed the early FEMA Directives reveal methods our own FBI uses to
“combat perceived threats to the existing social and political order”
(FEMA Directive 3). Camp FEMA
discloses that throughout four different Presidential administrations, FBI
Director J Edgar Hoover ordered agents to “expose, disrupt, misdirect,
discredit, or otherwise neutralize” the activities of certain dissident
political groups within the U.S. The
FBI claimed success in preventing local chapters of some of these
“targeted” groups from forming.
That was then, this is
now. A May 10, 2013 article
on the CNN Political Ticker revealed that the US Internal Revenue Service
had been targeting newly forming TEA Party groups by dragging their feet
to approve their requests for Tax Exempt Status.
One-fourth of the applications flagged for farther scrutiny were
pulled aside because “they had the names ‘tea party’ and
‘patriot,’ “ according to the IRS Director of tax exempt
organizations, Lois Lerner. And,
by the way, those with concerns about federal taxes were also one of the
groups targeted by the infamous February 2009 MIAC Report.
Now might be a good time
to discuss something else pointed out in Camp FEMA.
Citing Brian Glick’s book War at Home, the film discusses
the four main methods used by the FBI when conducting their often-illegal
counter-intelligence practices. Harassment
though the legal system seems an eerie fit in this particular scenario.
One of the tactics used to harass is discriminatorily enforcing tax
laws. While technically not
“discriminatorily enforcing” any tax law, they are using laws
regarding tax exempt status to hold up approval of the groups opposed to
the current administration.
Lewis has recently called
the mainstream media into question in his latest film, Peddling
that, in another bit of news, concerning a clear conflict of interest,
NewsMax revealed that the Presidents of both ABC and CBS have siblings
working for the Obama Administration’s National Security Council.
CBS’s David Rhodes’ brother, Ben, happens to be the Deputy
Assistant to the President and the Deputy National Security Advisor for
Strategic Communications. ABC’s
Ben Sherwood’s sister, Elizabeth Sherwood Randall, is the Special
Assistant to the President and the White House Coordinator for Arms
Control and WMD, Proliferation and Terrorism.
One has to wonder if that is why certain topics regarding maybe
Benghazi and Fast and Furious get very little coverage in the mainstream.
Add to that the information that White House Press Secretary Jay
Carney is married to an ABC senior national news correspondent, Claire
Shipman, and the mind begins to reel with “conspiracy,” or maybe just
good old-fashioned concern!
Wow, is that the voice of
our dear President Obama, ringing in my ears, “…you've grown up
hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than
some separate, sinister entity that's at the root of all our
problems…They'll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the
corner. You should reject these voices.”
Needless to say, Morris,
Hannity and scores of others, including the present and past
administrations, need to own up to the fact that those they have vilified
as “conspiracy theorists” have been getting it right FAR more often
than anyone remotely connected to media or government.
It’s time to dump the alphabet news agencies and follow
alternative media. While
Morris, Hannity and even President Obama may laugh at you, it’s obvious
you will be far better informed!

Obama To Grads: Reject
Voices That Warn About Government Tyranny
Exposes Mainstream Media Agenda
Many people ask what the motivation was to produce Peddling
Influence, a documentary exposing the mainstream media.
After all, they say, most people know there is a problem, as
approval ratings for the media clearly show.
Many feel news outlets have some sort of agenda. The project
didn’t start out as an expose’ on media, though.
Therein lies the real reason William Lewis Films chose the timely
“It’s funny,” says
writer Debbie Lewis, “I started this project to expose the many times in
our history that wars were orchestrated rather than fought to truly defend
out nation. One thing led to
another, and BOOM…we shifted directions!”
Lewis says the catalyst
for this change came while doing research.
She stumbled across an attention-grabbing quote by American
journalist John Swinton. “At
a ceremony recognizing him for his body of journalistic work, Swinton is
quoted as saying, ‘There is no such thing, at this stage in the
world’s history in America, as an independent press.
You know it and I know it. I
am paid for keeping honest opinions out of the paper.’
When I read that, I automatically assumed it was a recent quote,
not knowing anything about John Swinton.
Turns out, he made that statement in 1880!
How is that for a matter-of-fact testimony about journalism in this
The Swinton revelation was cited in an essay by Hamilton Holt titled Commercialism and Journalism from the very early 1900’s. It is still appropriate today.
“The problem with our
media is multi-faceted,” states Lewis.
“You have advertisers spending incredible amounts of money with
media outlets, government officials trying to control what becomes news,
those whom the media actually consider experts, often times the outright
lying while reporting the news and believe it or not, we have actually had
to contend with foreign governments using our own media against us to sway
Influence reveals that, in 2011, advertisers were projected to
spend a whopping $128-plus Billion to reach our population. That equates to roughly $410 per person in the United States.
Who the media consider
experts is also divulged in Peddling Influence.
“Anything said or done by government officials is considered
expert information. Given the
approval rating of both congress and our President, that’s a bit scary
for me!” exclaims Lewis. Others
considered “experts” by mainstream media are high-ranking businessmen
and women, well-known, popular people, actors & actresses, and
athletes. By using them as
experts, the film reveals, media has plausible deniability if it proves to
The film also proves how
extremely powerful the use of images are in swaying popular opinion.
Recently, both Fox News and CNN used footage from totally different events
while reporting overseas news.
discloses both England and Israel’s use of our own media to garner
support for their own causes, and how, before World War I, JP Morgan and
friends bought the news interests of the top twenty-five news outlets to
control what was reported.
The film closes with a powerful quote by none-other than media mogul Ted Turner, “The media is too concentrated, too few people own too much. There’s really only five companies that control 90 percent of what we read, see and hear. It’s not healthy.” Truer words were never spoken!

The Proper Media
Someone recently posted
an older article by Fox News about a burglary and arrest.
One has to wonder how the article from March 2012 about the
arrested homeowner would have been reported if our
Constitutionally-protected Free Press was in place.
While Homer Wright was simply defending himself, his wife and his
home against burglary, this Army Veteran was arrested.
Why? Because Chicago
doesn’t allow guns…So, what’s Mr. Wright supposed to do, let the
burglar pilfer through his stuff while waiting for the cops?
And, before you read
the article and tell me, “well, it says the burglar was only after
alcohol,” does it really matter what he was after?
Don’t we have a
constitutional right to protect ourselves?
More law officers are telling us they may not be able to respond
quickly because of budget cuts or other issues.
Does it really matter how quickly they respond?
Why can’t we take the responsibility for our own protection?
By the way, the burglar had been “arrested at least 13 times
since 2009.” Yet, whose
photo accompanies the article and what was reported FIRST in this
misguided article? Mr.
Wright’s and that he “was arrested because he had two previous weapons
convictions…” Mr. Wright was treated like a criminal, not only by the
police, but by the mainstream press, as well.
“Our mainstream media has lost more credibility over the years, but many simply don’t know where to turn. That’s why Peddling Influence is so important. It explains the media agenda, why we don’t get the truth” says film maker William Lewis.
I wish I could say this
was an April Fools joke…but I can’t.
Our Tyrant-in-Chief has taken things way to far, AGAIN!
There were a couple of interesting happenings regarding the
Executive Branch recently. And
they are mind-numbing!
reported today on a White House Press
Release that should have every American scratching their heads and
wondering how they put this out with a straight face! I bet you didn’t know April has been dubbed National
Financial Capability Month…I’m right, you didn’t, did you!?!
With Jackass Idiots in
Charge, Who Needs Enemies!
I just can’t take it anymore…New York City’s mayor, Michael Bloomberg, is an idiot! Yeah…I said it! How in the world New Yorkers think this man is worthy to be their mayor is beyond me…Perhaps they don’t read…OR, perhaps they read the bought-and-paid-for-media version of what’s going on, without bothering to verify the facts! That HAS to be it…The only other excuse is that New York is full of brain dead zombies that couldn’t think for themselves if their life depended on it…WHICH IT DOES! Read Entire Entry
What The Anti-Gun
Crowd Is Missing
The Alex Jones/Piers
Morgan “debate” was interesting.
Jones took no time to light into Morgan about Morgan’s views on
gun control, and the interview, and Jones’ passionate temper,
escalated from there. People,
like Morgan and other anti-gun supporters, miss the main point.
In the United States of America, we already have a massive
“study” about gun control…the handgun ban and trigger lock law in
“Why is it that no one thinks about the extensive period of the DC gun ban in our own recent history?” asks independent filmmaker William Lewis, of William Lewis Films. “Researching the details around the Second Amendment, like we did for our documentary on the Bill of Rights, Blood of Patriots, was extremely enlightening.” Read Entire Entry
Firearms Related Deaths and Your Right to Bear Arms…
There is no doubt that what happened to those dear, sweet children and teachers/administrators at Sandy Hook Elementary School was a horrible tragedy. BUT, the actions of some of our government officials in the wake of it are truly remarkable…but not in a good way. Those in favor of gun control have zero common sense (or maybe another agenda?). Firearm related deaths are fairly easy to research…especially in this day of the Internet. Let’s take a look at what we know, and in doing so, save our Second Amendment right to “keep and bear arms.”
The Joke’s on
you…You Voted For Him
What an incredibly wonderful event hosted by Free and Equal Elections and carried on Russia Today Tuesday, October 23. The inclusive debate included Libertarian Gary Johnson, Constitution Party man Virgil Goode, Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Justice Party guy Rocky Anderson, and all were well worth the time it took to watch. Why? The event showed us one of the most important things we have been missing…we have other choices. We don’t have to waste our vote!
The first Presidential
debate between the 2012 “nominees” is over.
President Obama and Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney went head to
head. Depending on who’s
telling the story, Romney did quite well, while Obama didn’t seem to
be on his game. Regardless
of what people think they witnessed during this debate, Romney is a
status quo politician. He says what he needs to say, when he needs
to say it and changes his mind regularly.
These are the facts…

Evil is Still
And so it begins…again…that ever-daunting task of “electing” a president. If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times, “A vote for anyone but Romney is a vote for Obama.” The Republicans, and others fed up with Obama, want us to choose the lesser of two evils…again. Don’t they get it? Evil is still evil, and even the lesser is still evil.
Handle The Truth…
Social Media is a fascinating creature. Just today someone posted an older article by Russia Today about an Executive Order President Obama signed in July giving him control over all communications systems in the United States. Please don’t take this as support for our wayward president, but oh how soon we forget our history, as he is certainly NOT the first president to claim such broad powers.
For all their boasting about wanting to return to our Constitutional Roots in 2008, the Republicans and Democrats, in conventional style (no pun intended!), have ditched that concept in favor of a near-mirror image of each other for their respective Presidential candidates. Without so much as a glance toward more constitutionally minded choices, like Ron Paul, except maybe to see that his supporters are all over the spectrum, the political party conventions were a total bust. And who loses? We-the-People!
Are We Informed
Enough To Call The Shots? August 9, 2012
August 9, 2012
With the “gun
violence” going on across the country recently, the Batman shooting
and the Sikh Temple shooting, not to mention the police shooting of a an
unarmed man in Anaheim, you can see the wheels turning in the minds of
the gun control advocates. But
before your liberal friends explode with excitement at the thought that
legislators will work towards it, maybe we all need a few lessons from
our not-too-distant past.
Against NY State’s Original Thoughts on Second Amendment
The mainstream news is a-buzz with the Aurora, CO shooting, which, again, brings up the question of gun control. Interestingly enough, or coincidentally, the UN Arms Treaty talks are also going on, and come to a close seven days after the shooting occurred. If the shooting will have any bearing on the Treaty talks is anyone’s guess. However, one piece of news is more than interesting. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the police around our fair country should go on strike until the population agrees to give up their guns. Does Bloomberg remember New York’s stand on the 2nd Amendment from this country’s beginning?
Things That Irk
Me During Election Years…
Politics is a tough business. If you are in politics, either your political colleagues and/or your constituency are not happy with what you are doing. If you watch politics, your blood has to boil at least once a day, as you watch these congress critters destroy this country. What don’t they understand about their constitutional duty? “It’s really not that hard to understand,” says William Lewis, director of Don’t’ Tread On Me and Blood of Patriots. Elections are coming up. It seems that during election years, I can find things that are in desperate need of exposure. This year is no different.
in US As Constitutional Checks and Balances Fail
“Our Founding Fathers saw a need and wrote in protections for this country via the Bill of Rights. The Constitutional Articles of Power and the three distinct branches of government were clear, in their minds, but as the possibility of subversion was pointed out, they set in writing the 9th and 10th Amendments to protect us from a government gone wild,” says award-winning film director, William Lewis.
Land of the Persecuted, Home of the
Distressed: A Year of Oppression in Review
Another Independence Day has come and
gone. Folks were out
celebrating as if nothing was going on, yet this year, like years past,
has been an eye-opener, if you’re concerned about your freedom!
Once the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave, the united States
of America has been reduced to a land of tyranny and shame.
Our people have forgotten what this country is about and that our founding generation put safeguards in our governing documents to protect us from despotic governments. Documentaries like Blood of Patriots and Don’t Tread On Me reach out to remind us what our rights are supposed to be and what made this country the envy of the world. Yet, we celebrate this Independence Day more oppressed than just a year ago. Should we truly reflect over this past year, we would see our country is plagued with some of the most ridiculous rulings and considerations, and realize they are neither isolated nor unusual.
gets SCOTUS Pass on Unconstitutional Obamacare
Like everyone else, I have been awaiting the Supreme Court’s decision regarding Obamacare, hoping to see some glimmer of constitutionality. After the initial reports on the ruling, and ignoring the mis-steps of FOX News and CNN, livid would have been too mild a word to describe my feelings. The argument against Obamacare should have been made differently if a different outcome was expected. SCOTUS made their ruling based on the three arguments our derelict government used to defend their position.
In their infinite subversion of our Constitutional Rights, our government argued they could use the Commerce Clause, the Necessary and Proper Clause, or the Tax and Duty Clause for the legality of Obamacare.
Diversity At Risk? You’ve Been Assimilated!
Remember the Borg from Star Trek: The Next Generation? The attempt to assimilate us is on, and you better be paying attention! I receive an e-mail from someone in the Maryland GOP who recently forwarded a message from the their chairman. The e-mail cited a speech given by Karl Rove at the MD GOP’s Red, White and Blue dinner and is calling for support to make Maryland a two-party state! What the heck? Did Karl Rove and/or the MD GOP fall on their heads? This country was NOT founded on party politics. I’m not totally sure how I got on the Maryland GOP e-mail’s list, but, hey, at least I know what they are promoting! Read Entire Entry
Ron Paul Save The Systemic Extinction of the GOP?
only thing going for the GOP right now is that Ron Paul is still on
their Presidential ticket. That,
much to the chagrin of the party, has brought the support of many fed-up
Democrats (Blue Republican is proof of that!), Constitution Party
members and Libertarians. Another demographic seen moving towards the GOP are younger,
libertarian-leaning folks. Paul
has managed to liven up the GOP, as the many state caucuses have proven.
But does the GOP care? Are
they willing to reach out and embrace these people?
The massive support for Paul and a recent article sheds
much-needed light on the “Grand Old Party” and the fact that, unless
they are willing to accept an injection of young, fresh, yet
conservative, ideas, they truly are a dinosaur in need of registry on
the endangered species list.
NOT a Democracy!
We do NOT live in a
Democracy…there, I said it! The
mainstream media and the news seem to want us to believe we do, but we
do not. The GOP and the
Democrats would like for you to believe it, as well.
In fact, even Chief Justice John Roberts, as Paul Sheridan has so
eloquently pointed out, wants you to believe it and our school system
preaches it like it’s the gospel truth. Read
Country From Despotic Government
How many Republican and Democratic followers are claiming to support true freedom through our country’s Constitution? Many, regardless of background, say they support our Constitution, thus our freedoms, but how many of those same people put stipulations on either the freedom of others or on the support they are willing to give? Do they really understand our rights, at all?

MI Dept of Natural Resources Responds...
I must admit, when I
called the Gaylord Office, the fellow who answered the phone there was
more than polite and listened to my concerns. The lady who
answered in Lansing was polite, but I could tell she was tired of
dealing with the issue. I repeat, though, she wasn't rude.
I did write the Director's office about the issue, not truly expecting a reply, because I figured they are swamped. To my surprise, I did receive a reply. In fact, I received two.
Our rights are at
stake…don’t you care!?!
There is a mess brewing all over this country, and it actually has been for some time. More and more we see our basic rights being taken by a callus and over-reaching government bent on “controlling” things that are not part of there power to control.
In my city, Columbia, MO, there is a desire to “attract” businesses by what is commonly referred to as EEZ, Enhanced Enterprise Zone. Sounds innocuous enough, right? Well…before you say that attracting business is a great idea, and it is, please consider the methods by which they choose to do it.
Gallup Blacks Out
Ron Paul In New Poll
Gallup has joined the ranks of the suspicious, with regard to
blacking out Ron Paul. Their latest poll and a head-to-head showdown between Obama
and the Republican hopefuls is disturbing and in more than one way.
The results reported on April 2, 2012 show Obama’s lead over
Romney is expanding and his lead over Santorum is larger still.
BUT, what they failed to do is include Ron Paul in the poll or
results. This may not seem
important, but what is shows it that the mainstream media is still
driving our elections!
A Ron Paul
Presidency; What’s In It For You?
Fresh off an incredible
victory in many local first phase caucuses in Missouri’s process and
his ignored win in the Virgin Islands, Ron Paul and supporters gear up
for the big one in Missouri, and elsewhere.
The media doesn’t take him seriously, but his supporters sure
do. In the face of what
non-Paul supporters may think is utter defeat from the past several
primary/caucus races, Paul supporters are nearly rabid with their fervor
for delegates. Why?
Because they know something others don’t seem to grasp; the
electoral process and what’s at stake if he loses.
While Romney, the obvious du-jour choice among many bent on re-tooling, or better yet, controlling, the GOP presidential race, touts his policies and rides his wave to glory, Santorum seems to be imploding, like many of the would be GOP hopefuls before him. Read Entry Here
Spring has sprung
and so has the SPLC
Spring has rolled around again and Mark Potok and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has released yet another Intelligence Report listing “Active Patriot Groups” for the past year. Nothing new there, but one could hope that, at least this year, they would have done their homework and the list would contain actual groups. Not so! Once again, the SPLC’s “list” contains feature length films, film companies, websites, and radio programs. Read Entry Here
Ron Paul and The
Battle for Our Constitutional Republic
“The constitution is
not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an
instrument for the people to restrain the government.”
Election Cycle is in full swing and Super Tuesday is just around the
corner. Watching the past
few state elections, it appears our general population is missing some
vital information…an in depth understanding of our constitutional
republic and founding documents. In
general, We-the-People have allowed our government to over-run us, in
part, because it gives us some sense of security, whether it be from
foreign enemies, “terrorists,” or whether it be financial, as in
welfare and social security. We
have forgotten that we have the ultimate power.
