Sums It Up

Remember when you were a kid and you read Mad Magazine? Well, it's still being published and they have captured the essence of the NSA's abuse on their cover this month. Here it is:

Spy vs Spy

Remember the "Spy vs Spy" stories in Mad. That image epitomizes the message.

Joke of the Day: Obama says Obama is "Comfortable" that current government surveillance is NOT abused.

End of today's message. Back to government control.

Civil Forfeiture

In 1984 Congress passed the Comprehensive Crime Control Act. This law gives law enforcement the portions of all assets seized during drug raids and similar investigations. The key word here is "investigations." Police and other law enforcers do not need to see a conviction of a crime, they can just seize YOUR property if you are merely suspected of a crime.

Civil Forfeiture allows police to take "suspected Illicit goods" from people who have not been convicted in court. Thus, perfectly innocent people can, and HAVE lost valuable assets and property - including their homes. All this for just being suspected of committing a crime.

There are numerous examples of where the police have abused this power to their own personal gain and advantage. The only way to try and get your property, money, or assets back is through litigation. Most people don't have the resources to to this and lose everything.

Isn't it time to nullify this law - especially when it is abused by unethical police departments? This law tramples the rights of innocent people.

The Lies Continue

President Obama looked the camera in the eye and said on the Jay Leno show that "We don't have a domestic spying program." That's a bold face LIE to the American public. We know better. More and more details are coming out about the NSA's "Monitoring" and "Data Mining" of personal information and it contradicts the President's remarks totally. It was just reported that the NSA not only records conversations of Americans who talk to foreigners, but they record and track Americans who merely mention foreigners or keywords that the NSA doesn't like.

So when Obama gets on TV and tells you that we (his administration) are NOT spying on Americans he's just plain LYING - and he's good at it. Last month we found out that the NSA "monitors" all of our Internet activities.

This Flagrant Abuse of the 4th Amendment is "excused" or "justified" by The Patriot Act which was expanded under the Obama Presidency - and now he's abusing it to the fullest. It's obvious that this government is overstepping their bounds by interpreting the Patriot Act to spy on innocent Americans.

Action To Take
Demand the repeal of The Patriot Act because of the government's abuse of it.

Detroit's Not the Only One

We all read about the first major city to file for bankruptcy. It was Detroit, Michigan. Once the most powerful manufacturing city in the USA, now a collapsing, crumbling, ghetto. Sad but true. I grew up in Detroit and it once was a place to be proud of. But that was long ago and this is now. Those who were smart way back then, saw the light and left the city. Those who could, did so over the span of about 30 years. Detroit's population dropped from about 2 Million in the 1950's to less than 800,000 currently. The revenues just aren't there any longer, but Detroit keeps on spending.

City employees who retired from Detroit were given pensions as part of their union contracts. These people depend on their pensions for subsistence as seniors. Now the city of Detroit cannot afford to pay these pensioners because they have unfunded pension accounts. Politicians and unions never set-aside ANY funds for pensions but spent the money as fast as they got it. Their goal: to re-distribute the wealth as all good Progressives do. Thank the unions and corrupt politicians for that! They gathered revenues and spent them faster than they collected them causing outrageous debt. They did so for almost 60 years. This finally is coming to a halt with severe consequences.

Now that Detroit is out-of-money, there's a matter of who's going to pay for these mistakes? Will it be the pensioners themselves? How about the bond holders who invested in the city? Or will it be the US taxpayers who will bail-out the mis-management and political corruption of Detroit for the past 60 years? None of this will be fair, but it IS reality!

Keep in mind that Detroit is NOT the only city in the US facing this problem. Chicago, Illinois is closely trailing behind Detroit and is running huge deficits that they cannot make up for the same reasons - mis-management and political corruption. After Chicago, who's next? How many other big cities are "too big to fail?" Why should the US taxpayer be responsible to bail-out all of these cities? Isn't the American government facing similar problems? Who's willing to bail-out the United States of America?  China already owns a large chunk of our debt.

If we literally borrow or print money to "bail-out" these cities, isn't that exacerbating the problem for our Big Government as well? We (the USA) are also broke on a much grandeur scale. Why should US taxpayers make the national situation worse by trying to help cities "too big to fail" in the first place? This is literally "self-destruction" and it's stupid to consider it.

Where's your humanity? (You ask?) Where's your REALITY? (I ask). It's a no-win solution. Isn't it time to stop "kicking the can" and fess-up to the fact that we need to STOP Big Government spending money we don't have and stop living in Progressive La La Land drinking the Kool Aid.

STOP giving bail-outs to anyone the government "decides" deserves one. It's just wrong to let people not be held responsible. It's time to face the fact that Progressive ideology caused this mess and we need to stop doing it.

Another Scandal - "Parallel Construction"

The Obama government that we love and trust has been busy creating more "False Scandals." This time, the Obama administration is directing government agents to "cover-up" a program being used to "investigate" Americans. The program is called "Parallel Construction" and you'd better pay attention. Parallel Construction is the use of normal investigative techniques to recreate the information provided by SOD (the Special Operations Division of the DEA). There is a training program that shows federal agents how to falsify the investigative trail in order to cover-up where the information was obtained.

This is unprecedented in American history. YOUR government is covertly falsifying information in order to go after and prosecute fellow Americans!

The agency performing these ILLEGAL activities is the US Drug Enforcement Administration. It activities include funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, phone records, and various "informants" to several authorities across the US so they can launch criminal investigations against Americans. SOD works closely with the NSA, CIA, and FBI. That should make us all feel warm and fuzzy. This may be even worse than the corruption in the IRS!

This covert activity of directing enforcement agents to conceal how these investigations began, tramples the 4th Amendment and God only knows whatever laws or state and local ordinances. It is pointed out that NONE of these cases involve national security issues.

So why are these "investigations" being done? And more importantly, what are they being covered-up?

Action To Take
Demand an immediate halt to this operation and demand Congress investigate this matter to the fullest.

The Trap

Was Al Qaeda using the threats to verify the National Security Agency (NSA) info from Snowden? The US just closed all Embassies in the Middle East. Why? Our inteligence response shows OUR hand! We fell for their trap. Yes, it IS a trap & Obama fell for it.

What if Al Qaeda was merely testing the validity of Snowden's intel gathering? How would you test whether or not that Snowden's brain dump was accurate? Maybe this whole thing is another scheme by the United States to kill more valuable Terrorist leaders. How would our enemy find out? They wouldn't want to "waste" more of their leadership.

Why not plan a "Fake" attack against all US embassies in Africa and throughout the Muslim world? If the US reacts to it, then Al Qaeda knows that the details provided by Snowden are the true picture of American intelligence gathering. Clever plan.

Result: America took the bait, hook, line, and sinker. American reaction was to close ALL embassies and broadcast warnings to American travelers going to the troubled regions. Al Qaeda now knows that the Snowden information IS valid and they have a new weapon to use against America and Americans.

But wait, don't just blame Snowden. Blame the USA's response to the false "threat." Look who's in charge. Susan Rice is the National Security Adviser. Recall that before her promotion, she's the one who went-out to 5 media stations and promoted the lie about Benghazi's origins. With minions like that providing the President with their opinions on national security, we are in DEEP Do Do America.

Our enemies will laugh every time they use Snowden's intelligence data to KILL Americans. Thank, in part, Susan Rice, an Obama appointee.
