Wayne Allyn Root on the Nevada Standoff

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, MAY SPARK AN AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Posted by Wayne Root on April 12, 2014

By Wayne Allyn Root

Forget the Ukraine. The real revolution is happening right now north of Las Vegas where a rancher is under assault by the U.S. government.

Remember that famous Las Vegas advertising slogan, “What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas.” Well when it comes to big government stealing our property and violating our rights, it’s just not true. What’s happening in Vegas is symbolic of what’s happening across this once great country.

This federal government assault on a Nevada ranching family looks a lot like the Gestapo, the Stasi, or any other authoritarian Big Brother force that persecutes, intimidates and controls the people with an iron boot. Think I’m exaggerating? How about a Las Vegas elected official (County Commissioner Tom Collins) warning out of state protestors “to make funeral plans.” This isn’t Ukraine, or Moscow. That was a Las Vegas politician threatening to have government agents murder law-abiding protesters. https://www.reviewjournal.com/news/water-environment/collins-manages-insult-utahns-comments-bundy-roundup

My Jewish grandparents told me “Never forget.” What they meant was, “We must never forget the Holocaust and what happened to our people.” Well it’s time to remember, before America is no longer the land of the free! Before your free speech is corralled into a “First Amendment Area.” Before government can steal your land and take away your rights based on trumped up charges. Before government can use force to taser legal non-violent protesters. Before someone is killed by masked government snipers with AK47’s trained on American citizens.

Don’t look now. It’s happening. This is an offshoot of Obama’s plan for America- an open distaste and disgust for ranchers, farmers, hunters, capitalist owners of land. Obama hates independence. Under this administration we have record numbers of welfare, food stamp, disability and unemployment insurance. We have a government spending record money advertising to entice more Americans – even illegal immigrants- to accept food stamps and entitlement checks. We’ve given up on enforcing illegal immigration.

Obama treasures a nation filled with people who are desperate, helpless and dependent on government checks. He desperately needs to stamp out independent and self-reliant Americans who want nothing to do with the government. Look no further than this declaration of war upon a productive, taxpaying Nevada rancher family.

Obama always shows his hand with the three-letter government organizations- IRS, NSA, EPA, ATF, FDA, SEC. Obama uses them to target, intimidate and persecute his critics and political opponents. Now it’s time for a new 3-letter threat: BLM (Bureau of Land Management).

The federal government has surrounded the Bundy family ranch outside Las Vegas with snipers, heavily militarized police, vicious police dogs, black SUV’s, helicopters, low flying airplanes and automatic weapons. Cliven Bundy, is a patriotic rancher whose family has had the right to graze his cattle on this land since the 1870’s. Since before there was a BLM. Bundy does not believe he owes fees to the BLM. He recognizes this as a States’ Rights issue. http://danaloeschradio.com/the-real-story-of-the-bundy-ranch/

After well over a century with grazing rights on this land, suddenly in the 1990’s the federal government demanded rent to allow the Bundy family’s cattle to graze on it. Bundy claims his rights to graze came from the State of Nevada, not the BLM, and has already paid fees to Clark County, Nevada. Bundy already owns the water and forage rights to the land. http://danaloeschradio.com/the-real-story-of-the-bundy-ranch/

The feds blame this assault on the fact that desert tortoises reside on this land. The government is now using the tortoise as their “cover” for an armed assault on an American ranching family. Yet it is important to note that this same BLM has waived rules protecting the desert tortoise on numerous occasions to support wind and solar projects favored by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. http://www.defenders.org/press-release/bureau-land-management-solar-plan-guides-energy-development-lower-conflict-areas.

http://www.windaction.org/posts/36964-lawsuit-searchlight-wind-energy-project-complaint#.U0jKnFzlQ-B

The BLM says Bundy owes $1.1 million in grazing fees (ostensibly to protest the desert tortoise) and has decided to use lethal force, positioning snipers on hilltops to perhaps shoot our own citizens. They’ve sicced vicious guard dogs on a pregnant woman. http://drleonardcoldwell.com/2014/04/10/feds-assault-cancer-victim-pregnant-woman-in-clash-with-bundy-supporters/

They’ve tasered and arrested members of the Bundy family for standing up to a force killing and stealing their property. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/04/10/tense-video-feds-taser-pro-nevada-rancher-protester-during-clash/

Bundy’s sister (a cancer victim) was thrown to the ground. Son Dave Bundy was beaten, bruised and arrested by this Gestapo-like force for the crime of…taking photos outside “the First Amendment Area.” http://mvprogress.com/2014/04/09/bundy’s-son-arrested-in-roundup-incident-public-protest-results/

And they’ve tried to banish protestors to a “First Amendment Area” where free speech is “allowed.” Funny, I thought free speech was a right everywhere on American soil? http://www.americasfreedomfighters.com/2014/04/11/blm-feds-assault-more-protesters-as-first-amendment-area-taken-down/

This is happening in America. Our country.

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval (a very moderate Republican) is angered by the federal government assault on property and States’ Rights. Sandoval said, “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists, nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans. The BLM needs to reconsider its approach to this matter and act accordingly.”

Nevada U.S. Senator Dean Heller told BLM Director Neil Kornze, “…law-abiding Nevadans must not be penalized by an over-reaching BLM.”

Between you and me, I think these are both very weak statements for government overreach this dramatic.

Clive Bundy used to have 52 rancher neighbors. They are all gone. He is the last man standing because the BLM has regulated ranchers out of business in favor of tortoises and green energy projects.

Government isn’t just brutal, vicious and over-reaching. Government is hypocritical. This same government that is supposedly acting to protect desert tortoises, killed hundreds of these same tortoises only a year ago because they didn’t have the funding to take care of them. http://www.infowars.com/before-nevada-cattle-rancher-dispute-blm-was-euthanizing-endangered-desert-tortoise/

Even more to the point, why protect desert tortoises if you’re killing cattle? Rendering trucks have been spotted at the government assault. For you city folk, rendering trucks are used to transport dead cattle. Bundy believes cattle are dropping dead in 90 degree heat after being chased by government helicopters.

http://www.wnd.com/2014/04/feds-charged-with-killing-cattle-in-nevada-range-war/

Then there’s the glaring conflicts of interest in this case. Is the Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie refusing to intervene on behalf of a Nevada family because he is afraid of losing Homeland Security funding? The Sheriff is on the Board of Directors of The Nevada Commission on Homeland Security. http://dem.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/demnvgov/content/homeland_security/APPROVED%20MINUTES_NCHS_062113_klh.pdf

And there are now reports that U.S. Senator Harry Reid and his powerful attorney son Rory Reid want Bundy’s cattle off the land to make room for a $5 billion dollar Chinese solar project.

http://www.infowars.com/breaking-sen-harry-reid-behind-blm-land-grab-of-bundy-ranch/

After Cliven Bundy’s property and rights are taken away, who will be next? Who knows what justification the BLM or corrupt government bullies like Harry Reid will use to steal your property, or beat your son for daring to take photos, or taser your pregnant daughter, or push to the ground your cancer-surviving wife.

Wake up America. Either we stand up to Big Brother, or everything our great Founding Fathers fought for will soon be gone.

Lexington and Concord Nevada Anyone?

Yesterday The good Dr. Eowyn posted about the Feds coming down on a rancher in Nevada Here. 

She mentioned some militia  members had arrived with more following. Here’s an update and some contact info so we can pound some phone lines in support and fill some inbox’s with email.

—————————————————————————————————-

Militias Are On Route to Help Cliven Bundy – Face Off With Feds: Will this be the Start of the 2nd American Revolution?

Written by,

 14 Hours Ago

An area just outside of the little town of Bunkerville, Nevada, with a population of around a thousand people, may go down in history. This little spot in the desert may be compared with Lexington, Massachusetts, the site of the “shot heard round the world” – the first shot fired in the American Revolution. Because it looks like the second American Revolution may start there…and soon.

It has been reported that tensions were running high outside of Bunkerville. It seems that the US government, in all of their infinite wisdom, has declared war on a cattle rancher named Cliven Bundy.

In a stand-off that has been likened to Ruby Ridge and Waco, the federal government has now deployed armed agents in a case of what the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has deemed “trespass cattle,” escalating a 20-year battle over grazing rights and what actually constitutes “public land” use in Southern Nevada.

Cliven Bundy, a 67-year-old rancher says his family has worked the 600,000-acre Gold Butte area since the late 1800s and that they were there well before the government’s Land Management Bureau ever came along. (source)

Armed federal officers have arrived to steal Bundy’s cattle and close down the land he is using. What’s more, they have declared a zone around the area to be free of the restrictions of the Constitution, specifically, the First Amendment right to assemble and speak freely. They’d like to keep their reprehensible actions quiet and out of the public eye. It’s really difficult to mow down a bunch of protesters ala Waco with the whole world watching.

Yesterday, tensions began to rise even further and numerous protestors were tazed and assaulted. (You can see the actions of those brave BLM officers on this video HERE).

It looks like tensions will rise even further because Americans have had enough.

Militias have been mobilised. It’s going to get real.

Bundy may be facing down a bunch of armed federal thugs but he’s going to be backed up by militia members from across the country.

This is the day that Patriots have been talking about and training for. They will not stand down.

CBS reports that militias from Texas, Montana, Utah, New Hampshire, and Florida will be standing with Bundy against the Bureau of Land Management.

If you aren’t a combatant, this doesn’t mean that you can’t participate in this revolt against tyranny. This is a call to action.

Here are the pertinent email addresses and phone numbers:

  • Bureau Of Land Management Phone Number: (202) 208-3801
  • Brian Sandoval Email Contact Form- http://gov.nv.gov/Contact/Governor/
  • Brian Sandoval – Carson City Phone # – (775) 684-5670
  • Brian Sandoval Las Vegas Phone # -(702) 486-2500
  • Senator Dean Heller Contact Form -
  • Phone #’s For Heller – Reno: 775-686-5770/ Las Vegas: 702-388-6605/ Washington: 202-224-6244
  • Sheriff Douglas Gillespi – (702) 828-3231 or (702) – 828 – 3111
  • Email: Sheriff@lvmpd.com

(source)

Share information in support of these people who refuse to stand idly by while theft, violence, and tyranny occurs at the hands of the government. If we all spread the word, there is no way that another Ruby Ridge or Waco can quietly occur. We can combat the disinformation spouted by the mainstream media by publishing REAL photos, REAL videos, and REAL accounts of what is happening. We can keep the communication open and tell the world what the United States government is doing to its own people.

Share this and other stories through email, through social media, through links in the comments sections of mainstream news sites. Whatever you do, don’t wait for someone else to take action. Now is the time to speak up for liberty. Make this story too viral for the mainstream to ignore. Do not allow these brave people staring down the barrel of a gun to do so without our support.

The Bureau of Land Management has picked up a snake by the tail, and it looks like that snake is going to bite.

UPDATE: Mac Slavo provides an update on the situation:

It is apparent that the Federal government was under the impression that they could simply move into the ranch land surrounding Bunkerville, NV and have their way with the property and livelihood of the Bundy family. What they didn’t count on was the outcry from Americans across the country. And now things may be headed to the next level. As Kim Paxton of The Daily Sheeple notes, citizen militias in several states have been called up. Many members of those organizations are taking up arms and are making their way to Nevada.

And it’s not just the citizen militias that are preparing to take action. The governor of Nevada has officially condemned the federal government’s actions, though he has yet to take any steps afforded to him under State law. Sheriff Richard Mack of Gilbert, Arizona has weighed in and calls the actions “terrorism.”

At last count there were some 200 federal agents from various agencies on the ground in Nevada and it appears that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of armed militia members will soon arrive to confront them.

The Federal government will no doubt step up their efforts, as they are facing the possibility of a widespread rebellion resulting from their actions against a private citizen whose only “crime” was to graze his cattle on the land his family has used for this purpose for over a century. It would not be at all surprising to see the President of the United States call up National Guard troops and more militarized law enforcement officials for fear of having this spiral out of control. A declaration of martial law to go along with already established First Amendment Areas is not out of the question.

We may well be on the cusp of a serious stand-off involving thousands of people. Keep in mind that most of them will be armed.

Given the circumstances, things could turn very bloody very quickly.

UPDATE 2: Bundy Family claims Feds are killing their cattle & protesters seem to have won a temporary victory against the Feds in this video update.

( Have to tell you the link to vid below is worth the watch in that it is not to often you see the Federales turn tale and leave.  LOL )

Can We Escape Social Conditioning?

Social Conditioning

(Peter Offerman dropped out of school at age 14 and worked as a forest lookout.)

(Found this interesting article on HenryMakow.com):

There is no collective salvation, Peter Offerman suggests.
Individuals can find liberation only by detaching from the herd.

“Building friendships takes time and effort and becoming your own friend is no exception. Most of us never get the
opportunity to do this.”

By Peter Offerman
(henrymakow.com)

At 68, I am getting on in years. I have lived a full life and have had the time to reflect. My life has been exceptional because social conditioning did not incapacitate me nearly as much as most people.

The most destructive conditioning takes place in our schools, during our formative years when we are most vulnerable.
I quit school in Grade Nine at age 14. I felt I was being made dumber instead of smarter. My parent’s response was, “if you don’t go to school we will not support you.” I left home then and took responsibility for my own life.

I first spent a few years hoboing around Canada taking whatever work I could find whenever I needed it. No job was too menial or too challenging to accept.

At 17, I took on a job that turned my life around and led to my shedding my conditioning.

This job was as a fire lookout man with the British Columbia Forest Service. I worked and lived on remote mountain tops by myself for four months each year. Spending that much time completely alone, especially during my youth had a profound effect on my perceptions about life as a human being and how I fit into society….

Substantial time on the lookout, without peer pressure, made me realize how confining trying to fit into the crowd is. Most people don’t even sense this pressure because it’s all they know. It’s like the air we breathe. It’s just there until it isn’t, then we die; unless we are prepared for an airless environment.

Most people also don’t realize how much of their time and energy it takes to be ‘social’. However being removed from ‘socializing’ is enormously stressful if it is all you know.

Many aspiring lookout men needed to come down off the mountains prematurely because they could not stand being alone. Those that adjusted to the isolation came to treasure the freedom of having just their own company. The amount of time that becomes available for other more worthwhile pursuits is substantial.

Building friendships takes time and effort and becoming your own friend is no exception. Most of us never get the opportunity to do this.

Our controllers understand that people who are not comfortable with themselves are much easier to control because they are lonely and seek comfort and friendship outside themselves.

Virtually every sales campaign is designed to sell you a bill of goods by convincing you that their product is going to become your best friend.

While we are thrust into the middle of intense relationships, the rest of the world passes us by unnoticed. We see the trees, but are oblivious of the forest.

On a lookout, becoming focused on each tree individually is not productive and makes it impossible to see the whole picture. A good lookout man scans vast vistas without focusing on anything in particular. Taking this approach to finding required data points, such as suspicious smoke, allows our intuition to come to our aid. It always amazes me how glaringly anomalies stand out when using this method.

It works just as well in any other environment, including researching on the internet. When surrounded by questionable ‘news/propaganda’ the fires stick out much more obviously when we also are aware of the apparently unrelated surrounding information that is part of webscape.

The ‘trees’ of propaganda do not distract us from seeing the whole situation. If there’s no smoke, there probably isn’t a fire. Our intuition can see the difference even though we logically can’t. Following our intuition instead of remaining focused on the propaganda leads us to the information that will then allow us to make sense of the situation.

CURRENTLY

I live in Ocean Falls, BC, a community of about 50 people on the ocean 500 kilometers north of Vancouver. I am currently attempting to create a lifestyle that my morality can justify, and disempower the Money Power that enslaves all of humanity, without resorting to violence. Psychological and financial wars are actually more critical components of the control structure.

My main priority was to stop contributing to the war machine. We all contribute to this cause by providing our labour; by purchasing goods from the Money Power, by paying income and consumption taxes to fund the control system.

I finally realized that every single thing in my life that I could make non-essential lightened my burden and also improved the quality of my life because I could less and have more time to enjoy my life. I currently own my home but it costs me virtually nothing. I have no mortgage, no insurance, and my property taxes average around $100 a year. I have beach front property on the ocean in a spectacular and comfortable setting.

Overall my current cost of living is about $350 a month which includes property taxes, food, transportation and all other services allowing me to live very comfortably while remaining in touch somewhat with the rest of the world. I could easily cut this contribution to the WM in half while still maintaining my current lifestyle but my intent is to reduce my contribution to $0. It is not easy to achieve zero and my current state is a necessary stepping stone to getting there.

Book Review: “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide”

Ultimate Obama Survival Guide

I read literally hundreds of books a year. My preferred technique is to read them for free from the library first, and then if the book is truly excellent, I buy a copy for myself. “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide” by Wayne Allyn Root is a book I intend to buy ASAP.

“The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide” is actually three books in one. The first section lays out, in extraordinary fashion, the current mess our country. Lest anyone cry, “Conspiracy theory,” everything is documented, footnoted, and sourced.

I knew things were bad economically under aka Obama, but I had no idea just how bad until I read this book. However, Root throws out a ray of hope: more millionaires were made during the previous Great Depression than at any other time in our country’s history. Which leads to the book’s second section, in which he details specific strategies that Americans can use not only to survive our current depression, but actually thrive.

Root discusses the importance of gold and silver, becoming your own boss, investing in your children, escaping high tax states (New York, California, etc.) and moving to zero or low-tax states (Nevada, Texas, Florida, Wyoming, Alaska, etc.), and much more.

There’s an entire chapter on Texas (Did you know that from the year 2000 to 2010, more than half a million people moved from California to Texas, and that more jobs were created in Texas in the past decade than in the other 49 states combined?), and an entire chapter on Detroit (The most dangerous city in America. Of course, it’s been under complete Democratic control for over forty years).

The final third of Root’s book contains advice from successful Americans, many, perhaps all, millionaires, who provide their own advice on how to protect your wallet and thrive during our current depression.

This is a book you’ll want to read, re-read, and then recommend to friends. It’s an important book, not only well written and entertaining, but filled with useful and inspiring information. If every American, or even just 10% of America’s population read this book, our problems would soon be over. If you have children 12-years-old or older, I highly recommend giving them this book and discussing it with them. It may be one of the best things you ever do for them.

“The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide” by Wayne Allyn Root is a must-read.

If Democrats Had Their Way…

detroit

If Democrats Had Their Way…

Remember New Coke? It was a dismal failure and the company scrapped it. How about three slice toasters? They were supposed to be the rage once, too. But nobody bought them and they disappeared into the dustbin of history.

That’s how life works in the private sector. If people don’t buy and the product doesn’t deliver, it disappears. Companies and individuals are forced to develop winning strategies in order to survive. If not, they perish.

The policies of the Democratic Party are not like that. The policies of the Democratic Party — high taxes, exorbitant union contracts and pensions, excessive government regulation, gun control, dysfunctional schools, etc. — continue to produce one failed program after another, yet they are fully supported by an average of 52% of the voting public. If they operated in the private sector, they would be forced into bankruptcy. However, because they are funded by our tax dollars, they have a never-ending spigot of cash flowing into their coffers. In essence, they are rewarded for failing.

Detroit is a city that has been under complete Democratic control for over forty years. And when I say complete, I mean complete. Every official, every policy, every decision affecting Detroit has come 100% from the Democratic Party and their supporters. The result? Bankruptcy.

Detroit is $2.5 billion in debt. That’s billion, with a “b”. Thousands of homes, buildings, and businesses are vacant and abandoned, and two thirds of the city’s street lights do not work.

Detroit is America’s most dangerous city with a violent crime rate five times higher than the national average. It’s the murder capital of the country, and — because it’s under Democratic control — Detroit has strict gun control laws.

In short, Detroit is a hellhole. A man-made, Democratic-Party-created hellhole. And it’s exactly what all of America would look like if Democrats had their way.

Detroit is not an aberration. It is a direct result of Democratic leadership and how applying the principles of the Democratic Party actually play out in real life. It’s as simple as 1 + 1 = 2. You do this action, you get this result.

If Detroit shows all of us the natural consequence of what happens when the Democratic Party gets its way, why do people support it? Why do tens of millions of Americans continue to vote for Democrats? The answer, I believe, consists of five distinct elements within the Democratic Party.

In the first group are the hardcore socialists and communists that form the leadership and financial backing of the Democratic Party. These are the folks that actually hate America and want to destroy it. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/03/22/99549/). They are the corrupt union leaders, the financial donors, the advisors, the radical college professors and teachers, the leaders of various “equality” groups and causes, the militant feminists, the Islamic extremists, education officials and administrators, and the actual politicians themselves. I estimate their numbers to comprise 5% of less of the Democratic Party.

To this first group, Detroit is a shining example of how they would like all of America to be. Many of them are atheists, or outright satanists, and they hate not only America, but also Christianity, because they see Christians as the primary roadblock that keeps them from turning America into a Communist dictatorship. Death, murder, kidnapping, and rape mean nothing to them if it helps to accomplish their objective.

The second group is big business and union members. The majority of those in this group do not hate America, however they can develop intense hatred toward any individual or group that threatens their current financial status. They support the Democratic Party because it pays.

For big business, that means bailouts, favorable loans, taxpayer subsidies, and government regulation to create monopolies and eliminate competition. You know who I’m talking about: Hollywood, Facebook, Yahoo, Apple, GE, Wall Street, owners of professional sports teams, etc.

For union members, it means maintaining their high salaries, pensions, insurance, and paid holidays. You’ll find many teachers in this group. All together, this second group comprises about 20% of the Democratic Party. They vote for their own personal gain, regardless of how much it hurts their country or their fellow citizens.

The third group consists of the media. I estimate them to comprise 5% or less of the Democratic Party. Like the first group, many of them are hardcore socialists and communists who also hate America, but their hatred is cloaked with a thinly disguised intellectual disdain. They consider themselves smarter than everyone else. Though they are intelligent, they suffer from a total lack of wisdom. If their intellectual superiority is threatened, they can revert to most violent and animalistic of natures, all condoned through intellectual justification.

This third group — the media — do everything they can to obscure reality in order to confuse and indoctrinate the fourth group: Useful Idiots.

“Useful idiot” sounds like a harsh term, but it was actually coined by the Left to describe many of their followers. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/12/29/are-you-a-useful-idiot/)

It saddens me to say that I have many friends, acquaintances, and co-workers in this group. They are nice people. Many of them would give you the shirt of their back, or rush to your aid at the first sign of an emergency. Sadly, they just don’t know very much about history or politics.

Useful idiots have been dumbed down at school and at home. Now in their 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, and beyond, they continue to believe everything they’re told by the mainstream media. They have been exposed to alternate information only in the form of ridicule. Many of them are so busy working, earning a living, raising families, paying bills, and looking for love that they just don’t have time to read and educate themselves.

I was in the position of not having time to read myself until I was laid off a couple of years ago and actually had time to research what was happening in the country. That’s when I discovered this site, Commieblaster, Moral Matters, and many more.

In this group you will also find many females who have been taught to accept abortion and feminism, and many males who accept abortion and feminism as a means to seduce and sleep with the aforementioned females. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/11/15/an-open-letter-to-obama-supporters/) I estimate useful idiots to comprise a full 40% of the Democratic Party.

The fifth and final leg of the Democratic Party are what I call Useful Leeches. This group consists of all races and ages, and they are far worse than the useful idiots. Useful idiots actually mean well. Useful leeches are angry, bitter, resentful, and believe that the world owes them a living. They survive on government handouts: food stamps, welfare, Section-8, disability, etc., and they hate themselves because of it.

Useful leeches have no desire to improve their station in life and would love nothing better than to drag the entire country down to their level of misery and poverty. Not surprisingly, this group tends to be extremely racist and intolerant. They live in a constant state of fear.

The hardcore socialists and communists of the first and third groups love useful leeches, because they are so easily manipulated. They make excellent shock troops, and can be employed to strike fear among the population and silence critics on the right.

If there’s any hope of saving our country, it lies with the useful idiots. With extremely few exceptions, the members of the other groups are not going to change. Useful idiots CAN change if they are approached and educated correctly. A friendly conversation here, a book or article passed along there, and slowly but surely the tide can be turned.

If we can begin to sway even 5-10% of the useful idiots, we can tilt the balance of our country back to its Constitutional foundation. We can’t look to others to do this. The work is ours. The future of our country rests with us.

(Thanks to my friend, Alan, for suggesting this topic.)

Red light camera at FL hospital ticketing those seeking emergency help

commonsense

Watchdog.org: Pay two tickets and call me in the morning.

Authorities installed red-light cameras near the emergency room entrance at University Hospital in Tamarac to nail traffic violators, but those rushing to the facility for medical attention are getting ensnared.

When Jacob Alcahe began to sweat and feel chest pains this past October, he thought he might be having a heart attack. “That day I felt very bad,” Alcahe said. “I couldn’t breathe and I was sweating and my chest hurt,” he told Florida Watchdog.

 So Alcahe decided to drive himself to the Tamarac hospital. With the emergency room in sight, he stopped at the traffic light at the intersection of University Drive and 72th Street and waited anxiously for the light to turn green. After several minutes, he decided he’d waited long enough. “I was desperate to get to the hospital because I felt very nervous,” Alcahe said.

Fortunately for him, the episode wasn’t life threatening. Alcahe was prescribed some medicine and was told to go home and rest.

The real heart stopper came a few days later when he received a fine of $158 for running the light. “I went to court trying to show the judge medical records. I explained that it wasn’t intentional, but it was a medical emergency,” Alcahe said.

But he was told his medical emergency wasn’t a “sufficient excuse” and was charged an additional $125 for the judge’s time. In total, his rush for help cost him $283.

ticket

“I expected at least a fair (trial), but I think the camera is put there intentionally to capture violations of the people who actually have a medical emergency,” he said. “It’s a scam to get the city more money. It’s unfortunate because local authorities should be for us and seem to be against us. I don’t understand and don’t think it’s fair.”

Florida Watchdog called and emailed city commissioners and Tamarack Mayor Harry Dressler for comment, but no one responded to our requests.

The controversy behind red-light cameras

Tamarac joined the traffic camera party last August, as the first ones were installed on University Drive northbound at Northwest 72nd Street and northbound and southbound at Northwest 82nd Street.

Several more were later installed at other intersections along University Drive.

A commission plan for the program states “the goal of this agreement is to achieve a higher level of public safety, through the use of the remote red light camera systems.”

The Tamarac city clerk’s office told Florida Watchdog that 571 citations were issued between Sept. 1, 2013, and Tuesday at the intersection near the hospital.

Critics doubts whether the cameras truly reduce the number of accidents — and police reports may back them up. The Doral Police Department reported that over the last two years, accidents increased at intersections where the cameras were installed.

It’s a similar story in Tallahassee. In the three years since red-light cameras began operating at Tallhassee’s seven busiest intersections — aimed at ticketing in 19 different driving directions — there have been only eight fewer side-impact collisions compared to the previous three years without the cameras.

A real money-maker

A recent report by the Florida Legislature’s Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability revealed the cameras may be more about generating revenue. When the Legislature approved the cameras in 2009, they projected earnings of around $100 million for the fiscal year 2012-2013.

But local taxpayers benefit little from revenue generated by those tickets.

Tallahassee has collected $6.3 million in red-light camera fines in three years, but only about 20 percent of the money was distributed locally. Florida claimed around $3.2 million of the booty, and Affiliated Computer Services, the camera vendor, got $3 million to provide and operate the cameras. The remaining $487,000 was deposited into Tallahassee’s general revenue fund.

Abuses like these have motivated state Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, and Rep. Frank Artiles, R-Miami, to introduce bills to ban the use of red light cameras throughout the state.

The proposal would prohibit the installation of any new red-light cameras starting July 1 and would limit fines to $83. Cities can still add a “surcharge” to cover the administrative costs of operating the cameras, however.

That bill is now advancing through the state Senate.

How Do I Steal From Thee? Let Me Count the Ways

After being laid off in 2012, I recently returned to work. Not having received a paycheck in two years, I had forgotten how much money the government steals from us. Comparing my gross pay to my net pay is like taking a shot to the solar plexus. I’m astounded that most Americans aren’t upset about the taxes they pay and remain blissfully ignorant of the fact that until 1913, there was no income tax.

I work hard for my money — very hard. Here’s a partial list of where MY money goes, without my consent:

Welfare recipients. About 20% actually deserve to be on welfare. The other 80% would rather stay home, watch television, and take a government check than work.

Food stamp recipients. Again, about 20% really need assistance. The others are stuffing their fat faces with money earned by hard-working Americans.

Subsidizing the so-called “arts.” You know what I’m talking about. The kind of pretentious art that no one wants or is willing to pay money for, but government supports (with my money). Have you been to a modern play lately? How about a modern opera or art gallery? Is modern sculpture your cup of tea? Well, I’m here to tell you, they all stink. Not the classics, but today’s art. Without government money, they would all dry up and blow away. And maybe then the real artists would appear. The purpose of art is to honor God and elevate men and women. What passes for art today, including popular culture, aspires to the exact opposite: dishonoring God and degrading men and women. And it’s our money that pays for it.

Subsidizing multi-million dollar sports stadiums. In case you haven’t noticed, professional football and the Olympics have turned into spectacles of satanic worship, with professional baseball and basketball not far behind. No, I’m not kidding. Our tax dollars fund the expensive, privately owned stadiums, where grown men (and some grown women) pay obscene ticket prices and allow themselves to be both surveilled by drones, as well as searched and fondled by other grown men (and some grown women), for the privilege of watching still other grown men play with a ball. Meanwhile, the billionaire owners laugh all the way to the bank.

Financing Planned Parenthood. This hijacking of our money is perhaps the most evil of all. Everyone involved with Planned Parenthood is going straight to hell, and the government is stealing our money to pay for it. Keep in mind that when the government uses our money to pay for things such as abortion, we become partially responsible. If that appalls you as much as it does me, then take a vow to only support politicians who are 100% pro-life.

Paying for Michelle Obama’s expensive dresses and Hawaiian vacations.

Financing Leftist propaganda disguised as education. The education our children our currently receiving, in which they are being taught by current Common Core curriculum that Abraham Lincoln was a liberal and a Democrat, that the Nazis were justified in much of what they did, that white Americans are racist and either got over their racism by voting for aka Obama, or held to their racism by not voting for him, is all being paid for out of our pockets. You work hard for your money, do you want it being spent teaching children revisionist history?

Paying interest to the Federal Reserve for the money they print and then lend to our country. Most readers of this site know that the Federal Reserve is a private banking cartel that has usurped the power to print money (in direct violation of the Constitution). It’s the greatest crime of this and the last century, and the source of almost every problem we face today, yet only one in every ten thousand Americans is aware of this fact, and the ones who don’t know, don’t care.

Paying the bloated salaries and pensions of union contracts.

Financing ludicrous “scientific” studies on such subjects as “Why lesbians are fat.”

Social security and disability. A massive Ponzi scheme some of us may never see. I’ve met at least ten able-bodied Americans in the last year, all fully capable of holding down a job, and every one of them collecting disability or social security.

I’d like to write more, but I can’t. I have to go to work to pay for all the scams listed above.

Feel free to add your own items to this list.

Obama Accumulates More Debt Than All Presidents Combined.

Now this will make your head go Boom!

+106%: Obama Has More Than Doubled Marketable U.S. Debt

By Terence P. Jeffrey       February 18, 2014 – 1:37 PM

(CNSNews.com) – The marketable debt of the U.S. government has more than doubled–climbing by 106 percent–while President Barack Obama has been in office, increasing from $5,749,916,000,000 at the end of January 2009 to $11,825,322,000,000 at the end of January 2014, according to the U.S. Treasury’s latest Monthly Statement of the Public Debt.

During the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush, the marketable debt of the U.S. government almost doubled–climbing 93 percent–from $2,977,328,000,000 at the end of January 2001 to $5,749,916,000,000 at the end of January 2009.

( Bush was a Boob Too)

During the time that Bush and Obama have been in office, the marketable debt of the U.S. government has nearly quadrupled, increasing by $8,847,994,000,000.

MARKETABLE DEBT-CHART

However, despite the massive increase in the government’s marketable debt during Bush’s eight years, Obama managed to accumulate more additional marketable debt in his first five years in office than all the presidents who preceded combined.

Let’s read that again..

However, despite the massive increase in the government’s marketable debt during Bush’s eight years, Obama managed to accumulate more additional marketable debt in his first five years in office than all the presidents who preceded combined.

The marketable debt of the U.S. government includes all debt securities sold by the U.S. Treasury that can be held by individuals, corporations or other entities outside the U.S. government and that can be sold in the secondary market.

It does not include money the Treasury has borrowed out of government trust funds—such as the Social Security Trust Fund—to spend on other government expenses when those trust funds were running surpluses.

The marketable debt of the U.S. government now includes Treasury bills, which mature in 52 weeks or less; Treasury notes, which have maturities between 2 and 10 years; Treasury bonds, which mature in 30 years; Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS), which have maturities of 5, 10 and 30 years; and Floating Rate Notes (FRNs), which are sold on 2-year terms.

At the end of January 2009, the month Obama took office, the marketable debt of the U.S. government was $5,749,916,000,000, according the Treasury’s Monthly Statement of the Public Debt. This included $1,792,889,000,000 in Treasury bills held by the public; $2,825,174,000,000 in Treasury notes held by the public; $591,174,000,000 in Treasury bonds; and $516,209,000,000 in TIPS.

It also included $23,754,000,000 in marketable Treasury bills, notes, bonds, TIPS and Federal Financing Bank notes that, according to the Treasury, were held by federal agencies.

In addition to the $5,749,916,000,000 in marketable debt as of the end of January 2009, the Treasury also reported $4,882,164,000,000 in nonmarketable debt owed by the government at that time, including $4,291,027,000,000 in nonmarketable intragovernmental debt.

By the end of January 2014, the marketable debt of the U.S. government had increased to $11,825,322,000,000. This included $1,484,438,000,000 in Treasury bills held  by the public; $7,922,464,000,000 in Treasury notes held by the public; $1,421,110,000,000 in Treasury bonds held by the public; $959,058,000,000 in TIPS held by the public, and $15,000,000,000 in FRNs held by the public. There was also $23,252,000,000 in marketable debt held by government agencies.

In addition to the $11,825,322,000,000 in marketable debt as of the end of January 2014, the Treasury also reported $5,467,698,000,000 in nonmarketable debt, including $4,961,625,000,000 in nonmarketable intragovernmental debt.

From January 2009 to January 2014, the marketable debt of the U.S. government increased $6,075,406,000,000—or about 106%

The Federal Reserve is now the largest owner of the U.S. government’s marketable debt. As of Feb. 12, 2014, according to the Fed’s latest balance sheet, the Fed owned $2,261,099,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities.

Entities in the People’s Republic of China are the second largest owners of the U.S. government’s marketable debt. As of the end of December, according to data released by the U.S. Treasury today, the Chinese owned $1,268,900,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities—down from $1,316,700,000,000 at the end of November.

In January 2014, according to the Treasury, the U.S. paid an average interest rate of only 1.998 percent on its marketable debt. In January 2009, when Obama took office, the Treasury was paying an average interest rate of 3.116 percent on its marketable debt; and, in January 2001, when President George W. Bush took office, the Treasury was paying an average interest rate of 6.620 percent on its marketable debt.

That means that the average interest rate on the U.S. government’s marketable debt is currently less than a third of what it was in 2001—when the U.S. had only $2,977,328,000,000 in marketable debt, or about 25 percent of the marketable debt it has now.

Also in January 2001, the Federal Reserve owned only $518,441,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities, or about 23 percent of what it owns now.

“Why I Want a Microchip Implant”

image

Interesting article by Michael Snyder:

Would you like to have an RFID microchip implanted under your skin? If you are anything like me, you would never allow such a thing to be done. But many others, especially among the younger generations, see things very differently. RFID microchip implants and other forms of “wearable technology” are increasingly being viewed as “cool”, “trendy” and “cutting edge” by young people that wish to “enhance” themselves. And of course the mainstream media is all in favor of these “technological advancements”. For example, the BBC just published a piece entitled “Why I Want A Microchip Implant“. We are told that such implants could solve a whole host of societal problems. Identity theft and credit card fraud would be nearly eliminated, many other forms of crime would be significantly reduced, children would never go missing and we wouldn’t have to remember a vast array of passwords and PIN numbers like we do now. We are told that if we just adopted such technology that our lives would be so much better. But is that really the case?

As our society becomes “digitally integrated”, technologists tell us that it is “inevitable” that wearable technology will become as common as smart phones are today. And the BBC article that I just mentioned is very eager for that day to arrive…

Ultimately, implanted microchips offer a way to make your physical body machine-readable. Currently, there is no single standard of communicating with the machines that underpin society – from building access panels to ATMs – but an endless diversity of identification systems: magnetic strips, passwords, PIN numbers, security questions, and dongles. All of these are attempts to bridge the divide between your digital and physical identity, and if you forget or lose them, you are suddenly cut off from your bank account, your gym, your ride home, your proof of ID, and more. An implanted chip, by contrast, could act as our universal identity token for navigating the machine-regulated world.

And for some people, that day is already here. In fact, at some technology conferences people actually line up to get chipped…

This month at the Transhuman Visions conference in San Francisco, Graafstra set up an “implantation station” offering attendees the chance to be chipped at $50 a time. Using a large needle designed for microchipping pets, Graafstra injected a glass-coated RFID tag the size of a rice grain into each volunteer. By the end of the day Graafstra had created 15 new cyborgs.

How creepy is that?

In addition, scientists have now developed batteries that are powered by the human body that could be used to provide a permanent power source for implantable technology. The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article by Kristan Harris entitled “Scientists Develop Human-Powered Battery For RFID Implantable Chips“…

A group of United States and Chinese researchers have collaborated to created a tiny implantable batteries that feed off of human energy. These thin, flexible mechanical energy harvesters have had been successfully tested on cows. The process uses what is known as conformal piezoelectric energy harvesting and storage from motions of the heart, lung, and diaphragm.

It the future, they say, it could be used to power a range of gadgets. Will it be long until you will charge your I-phone by plugging into your own body?

Of course RFID microchips don’t actually have to be implanted to be useful. In fact, they are already being used to track schoolchildren all over the United States…

Upon arriving in the morning, according to the Associated Press, each student at the CCC-George Miller preschool will don a jersey with a stitched in RFID chip. As the kids go about the business of learning, sensors in the school will record their movements, collecting attendance for both classes and meals. Officials from the school have claimed they’re only recording information they’re required to provide while receiving federal funds for their Headstart program.

And over in the UK, RFID microchips are being used to track children wherever they go all day long…

For those who think the NSA the worst invader of privacy, I invite you to share an afternoon with Aiden and Foster, two 11-year-old boys, as they wrap up a Friday at school. Aiden invites his friend home to hang out and they text their parents, who agree to the plan.

As they ride on the bus Foster’s phone and a sensor on a wristband alert the school and his parents of a deviation from his normal route. The school has been notified that he is heading to Aiden’s house so the police are not called.

As they enter the house, the integrated home network recognizes Aiden and pings an advisory to his parents, both out at work, who receive the messages on phones and tablets.

We are rapidly entering a dystopian future in which it will be “normal” for technology to monitor our movements 24 hours a day. Most people will probably welcome this change, but it also opens up the door for an oppressive government to someday greatly abuse this technology.

Another type of “wearable technology” that is rapidly gaining acceptance is “smart tattoos”.

Normally, we are accustomed to thinking of tattoos as body art. But that is about to change. Just check out this excerpt from a recent Gizmodo article…

Everyone from neurologists to biohackers is reinventing the very idea of the tattoo. With the right technology, tattoos can do a lot more than just look beautiful or badass. They can become digital devices as useful and complex as the smartphone that bounces around in your pocket. It sounds wildly futuristic, but the technology already exists.

In fact, a company called MC10 is working on a wide range of “smart tattoos” that will be able to do some pretty wild things…

Materials scientist John Rogers is doing some pretty incredible work with flexible electronics that stick to your skin like a temporary tattoo. These so-called “epidural electronics” can do anything from monitoring your body’s vital signs to alerting you when you’re starting to get a sunburn. Rogers and his company MC10 are currently trying to figure out ways to get the electronics to communicate with other devices like smartphones so that they can start building apps.

And Motorola actually has a patent for a tattoo that will take commands from unvocalized words in your throat…

The tattoo they have in mind is actually one that will be emblazoned over your vocal cords to intercept subtle voice commands — perhaps even subvocal commands, or even the fully internal whisperings that fail to pluck the vocal cords when not given full cerebral approval. One might even conclude that they are not just patenting device communications from a patch of smartskin, but communications from your soul.

They are calling it “wearable computing”, and what we are witnessing now is just the tip of the iceberg.

What we will see in the future is probably far beyond anything that any of us could imagine right now. The following is from a recent Computer World article…

But imagine a future where anything you might want to know simply appears to you without any action or effort on your part. You could be eating in a restaurant, and Google Glass could, for example, tell you that it’s the spot where your father proposed to your mother. Or that your friend will be late because of traffic, the salmon got bad reviews online, your parking meter will expire in 20 minutes, or the bathroom is through the bar and up the stairs to the right. Imagine that such knowledge could simply appear into your field of vision at the exact moment when you want to know it.

That’s where wearable computing is going.

All of this may sound very “cool” to a lot of people.

But what happens if we are all required to have “electronic identity tattoos” someday?

What happens if an oppressive government uses this technology to watch, track, monitor and control all of us 24 hours a day with this technology?

What happens if you are not able to get a job, have a bank account or buy anything without “proper identification”?

I think that you can see where I am going with this.

Technology is truly a double-edged sword. It can do great good, but it can also be used for great evil.

So what do you think about all of this? Please feel free to share your thoughts by posting a comment below…

Obama And Executive Orders. I Got This Email And…..

First and foremost I am not defending buttheads actions. OK? Just posting info I found and kinda debunking one of those dopey emails going around so we at FOTM have the smartest readers on the web.  :lol:

We all know Skippy is out of control with the executive orders right? So I received this email yesterday, which was about a 7th forward, and at first glance I said hmmm. Then I said let me check this out, because it seemed a bit high , and the sender has sent me stuff before which has not panned out. My searching was a bit surprising to me. How about you?

Here is the email.

For the SHOCK of your life, take 1 minute to comprehend what you read below. During our lifetimes, all Presidents have issued Executive Orders.  For various reasons, some have issued more than others.  These things will directly affect u.s. all, in years to come.  Question is: Do YOU care enough to send this, ‘shocking info,’ to people you love and others?

For the SHOCK of your life, take 1 minute to comprehend what you read below. During our lifetimes, all Presidents have issued Executive Orders. For various reasons, some have issued more than others. These things will directly affect u.s. all, in years to come. Question is: Do YOU care enough to send this, ‘shocking info,’ to people you love and others?

NUMBER OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS ISSUED by U.S. Presidents in the last 100 years:

Teddy Roosevelt – 3
All Others until FDR – 0
FDR – 11 in 16 years
Truman – 5 in 7 years
Ike – 2 in 8 years
Kennedy – 4 in 3 years
LBJ – 4 in 5 years
Nixon – 1 in 6 years
Ford – 3 in 2 years
Carter – 3 in 4 years
Reagan – 5 in 8 years
Bush – 3 in 4 years
Clinton – 15 in 8 years
George W. Bush – 62 in 8 years
Obama – 923 in 3 1/2 years! More than 1000+ and counting Executive Orders in 6 years…
Read some of them below – unbelievable!
Next step -dictatorship. (Looks like we are there already!)

OK so I go poking around and found this list. Snopes verifies , but with their snotty lib slant.
