Recently, the Obama State Department officially declared the "War on Terror" to be over. This should mean that the threat of a terrorist attack against America either at home or abroad has become so miniscule that it poses no further concern for the Federal government. Yet, the Obama Administration was seemingly concerned enough about Terrorism as of 12/11 that the President signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act which gives the US military the power to detain US citizens for indefinite periods, literally shoot anyone who is even suspected of anti-government activity that is uncooperative, and arrest those who have anti-government opinions such as speaking out against the Gestapo-like tactics used by the TSA each time anyone wishes to fly a commercial airline, for example.

President Obama was also seemingly concerned enough about terrorism to use his executive powers to implement the National Defense Resources Preparedness Act into law, March 16, 2012, which gives him the right to seize control over all public and private entities in the country, literally when he deems todo so.

Such fascist laws as the Patriot Act which give the Federal government the right to spy on its own citizens in the form of telephone taps, scrutinizing all bank accounts, the monitoring all internet usage by everyone, recording travel by all and produced the TSA is as alive today as it ever was, shortly after 9-11.

Other freedom killing bills such as SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act), PIPA (Protect IP Act), ACTA (Anti Counterfeiting Trade Agreement), and CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act) that have sprung up of late are all directed at spying on American citizens and keeping tabs on our personal lives.

Today, in every town and municipality in the US, there are cameras at every street corner and most are equipped with microphones while recording every conversation going on by anyone within range of them.

American society today gives new meaning to George Orwell's book 1984 and even goes far beyond the book's big brother scenario.

If the War on Terror is officially over as we are told it is, there shouldn't be a need for any of this but, the Federal government's desire to spy on us and know everything about our every move has drastically increased just since January of this year. Thus, proving that it is the citizens of the US that the Federal Government is interested in and not international terrorists. We have become the enemies of the state in the eyes of the Federal Government.

The US Federal government fears its own citizens, because it is afraid that massive riots and civil unrest will erupt at any given time when the people realize they have been taken for idiots by their own government.

Some of the lies we are told?

That we are not in a recession, but the official unemployment rate is at about 8% with the actual number of Americans out of a job being at over 20% when all are counted, not just those receiving unemployment benefits that make up the 8%. At no time in the past, has this country not been in a recession when the unemployment numbers were as high as they currently are.

The Federal government continues to degrade the economy and drastically increase inflation by having an unrealistic energy policy that does nothing in reducing dependence on foreign oil, curbing high prices, or allowing even a shred of hope of becoming energy independent.

Instead, the Obama Administration would rather raise prices of energy, destroy what's left of the economy, and continue to increase the need for buying oil overseas by following a fantasy of striving for renewable energy in the form of wind, solar, and his remarkably idiotic vision of fueling automobiles with algae. The renewable energy vision would be fine, if it worked. However, given the fact that neither wind nor solar power actually ad to the grid, end up costing billions in taxes, drastically increases electric bills and use more grid electricity than they will ever produce, it is absolutely insane to consider them as a viable alternative. The algae idea is too outrageous to even mention.

Given the fact that over three hundred million people now live in the US and the reality that we are an industrialized nation, the very idea of these so called renewable energy sources alleviating any traditional energy source is so absurd that anybody should be examined for severe psychological disorders of reality denial for believing they do.

The environment cannot be used as an excuse for such an inept energy policy, because we encourage and even help finance oil production and offshore exploration in many other countries such as Brazil and Mexico. This is a clear indication of an overall lack of concern by the US for the whole state of the environment of the world and a brazen attempt at destroying its own economy through oppressing growth.

The trillions wasted by both the G.W. Bush Administration and the B.H. Obama Administration on useless endeavors, wars, the global warming/climate change lie, and countless other irresponsible projects should be considered Federal crimes rather than lousy leadership.

The trillions wasted in the form of the various Stimulus packages since Obama came to power was literally money going to well-off public sector unions and wealthy Democrats worth hundreds of billions of dollars. Billionaire Democrat donors who received a lot of money from the Obama administration include: Solyndra owner George Kaiser; Tesla Motors owners Leon Musk, Larry Page and Sergey Brin; NRG Energy owners Warren Buffett, Steven Cohen, and Carl Icahn; Abound Solar Manufacturing's Pat Stryker; and Siga Technologies' Ronald Perelman. Among other wealthy Democrat winners were former Vice President Al Gore whose investment in Fisker Automotive was rewarded with a $529 million loan guarantee. All together about 75 percent of loans and grants have been given out to companies run by Obama supporters.

Destination of stimulus money:

March 2008: Bush stimulus $29 billion for Bear Stearns/JP Morgan Chase deal
May 2008: Bush stimulus $178 billion in tax rebate checks
July 2008: Bush stimulus $300 billion for distressed homeowners
July 2008: Bush stimulus $200 billion for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
September 2008: Bush stimulus $50 billion to guarantee money market funds
September 2008: Bush stimulus $25 billion to Big 3 automakers
September-November 2008: Bush stimulus $150 billion to AIG
October 2008: Bush stimulus $700 billion to banks (TARP)
February 2009: Obama stimulus $787 billion in broad stimulus package
February 2009: Obama stimulus $75 billion for distressed homeowners
February 2009: Obama stimulus $200 billion for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
March 2009: Obama stimulus $30 billion for AIG
March 2009: Obama stimulus $15 billion for Small Business lending
March 2009: Obama stimulus $1 trillion for banks to remove "toxic assets" from their books
March 2009: Obama stimulus $22 billion for Big 3 automakers Chrysler and GM
April 2009: Global stimulus $1 trillion commitment from G-20 countries
June 2009: Obama stimulus $30 billion to help General Motors file bankruptcy

With both Administrations, the money clearly went mostly to those who benefited them politically and not where it was needed the most.

During the Bush Administration just a day before the 9-11 events, some 3.2 trillion dollars was reported as lost by the Pentagon.

What all of the tyrannical laws enacted by the US government really amount to is insurance for controlling a mad, fed up population of hundreds of millions of people who finally get enough of the corruption and lies and decide to do something about it.

We the citizens of the US are considered as the threat to the Federal government because they know they have become the enemy of the Constitution from within.

When the doorbell rings, I could get to the door without

I could sit on the couch and my bed any way I wanted,

I would have enough money, and no guilt, to go on
a real vacation.

I would not be on a first-name basis with 6 veterinarians,

ONE dog/cat ties them down too much.

I'd look forward to spring and the rainy season instead
of dreading them as 'mud' season.
I would not have to answer the question: 'Why do you have so many animals?' from
people who will never know the joy of being loved unconditionally by the closest thing to an angel they will ever encounter.

How EMPTY my life would be!!!

Bill empowers IRS to take your guns | American Vision News



Bill empowers IRS to take your guns

by Joel McDurmon on Apr 27, 2012 relates:

The collection agency for the Federal Reserve known as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is working with legislators to gain control over the rights of Americans. Without the right to due process, the IRS can simply claim a citizen owes $50,000 dollars or more to their illegal operation. This accusation alone will give their agency the right to revoke American's travel rights and even remove the right to own a firearm.

With the help of Representatives like Barbara Boxer of California, a bill rapidly working through Capitol Hill (passed through the Senate and is currently up for review in the House) will give the IRS power to:

  • Accuse Americans of delinquency of tax payment without due process
  • Revoke their passports and travel rights
  • Place the accused in a centralize database
  • Authorize the removal of their right to own a firearm

No formal charges are required. Simply the accusation from the IRS is sufficed to strip American citizens of their Constitutional rights.

"There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense — only that the citizen is alleged to owe the IRS back taxes of $50,000 or more,"reports the Daily Economist.

In essence, these blacklisted citizens would be remotely labeled "domestic terrorists" and treated as such.

The provides a similar report.

Watchdogs say IRS to revoke gun rights and passports


Anthony Martin

A new bill passed by the Democrat controlled Senate and now headed to the House would give the IRS broad new powers that watchdogs say include revoking gun rights and passports.

The bill, S.1813, is a reauthorization of the federal highway aid, safety, and construction program. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, and Senator Barbara Boxer, D-CA, added a major provision to the bill regarding the IRS.

The two Senators apparently want the IRS to have the power to revoke the gun rights of citizens and their right to travel if they owe more than $50,000 in back taxes.

But the problem is that the IRS would not be required to prove that a citizen owes $50,000. All it would take is for the IRS to accuse a citizen of owing that amount.

According to Before It's News, the bill's provisions would give the IRS the power to:

Accuse Americans of delinquency of tax payment without due process.

Revoke their passports and travel rights.

Place the accused in a centralize database.

Authorize the removal of their right to own a firearm.

And the Daily Economist provides the following assessment of the new law:

There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense - only that the citizen is alleged to owe the IRS back taxes of $50,000 or more.

The specific wording of this section of the bill can be found in the linked document provided above, S. 1813, Title III, Sections 40304, 7345, and 4, on pages 1447-1452.

But the part of the bill that has gun rights activists worried is on pages 1320-1324. This subsection is entitled, "Firearms." While the wording is in obscure legalese, it seems to be saying that the person designated as "the Secretary" is given broad powers over permits and the revocation of permits. And this power is described under the section that specifically deals with firearms.

Lawyers may debate whether or not the wording of the bill gives the IRS the power to suspend gun rights. But government watchdogs have become alarmed over the tendency of legislation to be written in such a manner as to create broad leeway for interpretation, meaning that nebulous wording often leads to an interpretation of the law that confirms the suspicions of many citizens that the federal government is relentlessly engaged in power grabs aimed at limiting the Constitutional rights of Americans.

And given that Barbara Boxer and Harry Reid are two of the most virulent anti gun activists in the Senate, gun rights activists say there is plenty of reason to be alarmed about the provisions of the bill that the two made sure were included.

Zimmerman's Lawsuit Against Al Sharpton, NBC, and the Martin Family Attorneys

Zimmerman's Lawsuit Against Al Sharpton, NBC, and the Martin Family Attorneys


Jerri Cook

Wausau Legal Education Examiner

In a twist not even the best fiction writers could have seen coming, the Trayvon Martin case, instigated by a couple of shyster attorneys looking to make money from a tragedy, will reportedly end with George Zimmerman recovering legal damages from Al Sharpton, NBC, and the Trayvon Martin family attorneys, Daryl Parks and Benjamin Crump.

The first claim is likely to be intentional infliction of emotional distress (IIED). To be successful, Zimmerman will have to show that conduct of Al Sharpton and NBC was so extreme and outrageous that it transcended all bounds of decency; that they acted with either the purpose to cause Zimmerman extreme emotional distress or acted with reckless disregard for Zimmerman's emotional well being, and that Al Sharpton and NBC caused him identifiable emotional damage. Here, Al Sharpton publically claimed that Trayvon Martin was murdered and that George Zimmerman should be arrested for the crime. The ensuing civil unrest and threats of racial violence caused Zimmerman to go into hiding. There is no doubt that crying racism and murder to a group of self-radicalized Black militants is beyond all bounds of decency. Any White peron accused of killing an unarmed Black child because of racism would be terrified of the mob's reaction. If Zimmerman has been treated by a physician for any kind of emotional trauma caused by Sharpton linking him to a murder that never occured, Sharpton's going to be held responsible.


<a href=";tt=legal%20education;plc=wausau;chn=education%20%26%20schools;subc=higher%20education;sect=higher%20education;nid=46376611;top=education%20%26%20schools;top=higher%20education;top=george%20zimmerman;top=al%20sharpton%20defamation;top=trayvon%20%20martin;top=nbc;ed=wausau-wi;uid=4863646;etid=365091;pgtp=article;tile=3;pos=3;sz=300x250;kw=;ord=697467707?" target="_blank"><img src=";tt=legal%20education;plc=wausau;chn=education%20%26%20schools;subc=higher%20education;sect=higher%20education;nid=46376611;top=education%20%26%20schools;top=higher%20education;top=george%20zimmerman;top=al%20sharpton%20defamation;top=trayvon%20%20martin;top=nbc;ed=wausau-wi;uid=4863646;etid=365091;pgtp=article;tile=3;pos=3;sz=300x250;kw=;ord=697467707?" width="300" height="250" alt="" /></a>

NBC will likely also be found liable to Zimmerman for IIED because a producuer who admittedly altered an audio recording to make it look like Zimmerman harbored racial prejudices against Blacks. The result made all of America believe that George Zimmerman was the most wretched racist on the planet. Again, this sort of behavior is wholly unacceptable in a society that values established due process and the search for the truth. This act, combined with Sharpton's incessant race-baiting no doubt caused Zimmerman intense emotional pain.

The second against Al Sharpton and NBC claim is likely to be twofold- defamation and the invasion of privacy. The common law elements of defamation are 1) a false statement, 2) about or concerning the plaintiff, 3) communicated to a third person, and 4) damage to the plaintiff's reputation. While it's generally held that defamatory speech is slander and written communications are libel, where the speech is recorded and widely available, the proper claim is libel, which is held to be the more serious of the two as video recordings become permanent because they are ubiquitiously reproduced and shared across the Internet via social networking.Clearly, Al Sharpton repeatedly told people that Trayvon Martin was murdered by a racist and that George Zimmerman should be held responsible. As we are finding out, there was no racially motivated murder here. Sharpton's statements on MSNBC and at the numerous rallies he appeared at were patently false, and they were clearly about George Zimmerman. The damage to George Zimmerman's reputation is grave. He's been branded a racist child murder by Sharpton. He had to quit his job and leave his community because of the damage done to his reputation.

While Sharpton's employer, NBC, would normally not be liable for Sharpton's intentional torts, they certainly could be held responsible for his behavior under a negligence theory. If NBC knew, or should've known, that Sharpton's on-air race-baiting and vitriolic conjecture would lead to the destruction of George Zimmerman's reputation, and did nothing to prevent Sharpton from harming Zimmerman, NBC will also be looking at a negligence action.

An invasion of privacy claim will stand against NBC because of the altering of the audio tape. The publication of the audio placing George Zimmerman in a false light that is offensive to a reasonuble perosn under the circumstances, and satisfies the main elements of a false light invasion of privacy claim. Because the producer has reportedly admitted to altering the audio to make the story seem like a hate crime, there will be little problem with establishing intent here. Because this is a story of public interest, Zimmerman will have to show that it was done with malice. What could be more malicious than deliberately portraying someone as a racist child killer without a shred of proof?

The third claim will be against the Martin family attorney whose professional malpractice brought a nation to the precipice of a race riot. It was attorney Benjamin Crump who contacted Al Sharpton. Crump called Sharpton after trying to intimidate Sheriff Lee into arresting Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin. When Crump realized he wasn't going to be able to bring a wrongful death suit against the city or county (his specialty by the way is suing state and local governments), Crump decided to invent a racial controversy in order to force the Sanford Police Department into a settlement. Benjamin Crump manufactured outrage over a hate crime that was itself manufactured. This is negligence of the worst sort. It's willful.

As an attorney, Benjamin Crump has a duty to adhere to the principles of law. If you don't have a merit-based case, the law holds you have no case. It is malpractice to invent knowingly invent one. The harm caused by Crump's breach of duty is mind-numbing. There were death threats to Zimmerman and his family from militant Black racists. There were retalitory killings of White people. All of this on top of the injury to George Zimmerman. He has lost everything for no other reason than a greedy attorney wanted to shake down the police for money. It's shameful. It's this sort of behavior that gives legal professionals a horrible public image. Thanks a bunch Ben.

"L" stands for LEADERSHIP


The "L" in Barack Hussein Obama stands for LEADERSHIP.







After three years of Obama ....

Here's your change!


January 2009


% chg


Avg. Retail price/gallon gas in U.S.





Crude oil, European Brent (barrel)





Crude oil, West TX Inter. (barrel)





Corn, No.2 yellow, Central IL





Soybeans, No. 1 yellow, IL

U.S. Dollar versus Japanese yen exchange rate





U.S. Money supply, M1, in billions





U.S. Money supply, M2, in billions





National debt, in trillions





Just take this last item: In the last two years we have accumulated National Debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our entire nation's history.
Over 27 times as fast. Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane 27 times faster, it would be doing 7,555 MPH!

(1) U.S. Energy Information Administration; (2) Wall Street Journal; (3) Bureau of Labor Statistics; (4) Census Bureau; (5) USDA; (6) U.S. Dept. Of Labor;
(7) FHFA; (8) Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller; (9) RealtyTrac; (10) Heritage Foundation and WSJ; (11) The Conference Board; (12) FDIC; (13) Federal Reserve; (14) U.S. Treasury

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes you think he's so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 29 months -- so you'll have about 9 months to come up with an answer. Every statement in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.
