The seed of Christian persecution and criminalization of bible-believers by the State of Obama’s Amerika has now germinated with the SCOTUS ruling against the defense of Marriage Act as being unConstitutional.
The reasons of the prevailing argument winning the case for homosexuals is that anyone holding to beliefs that marriage is ordained of God to be reserved between a man and a woman, is somehow harmful to those who demand sexual perversion be legalized and forced into acceptance by all.
In a ripping dissent, Scalia says that Justice Anthony Kennedy and his colleagues in the majority have resorted to calling opponents of gay marriage “enemies of the human race.”
But to defend traditional marriage is not to condemn, demean, or humiliate those who would prefer other arrangements, any more than to defend the Constitution of the United States is to con- demn, demean, or humiliate other constitutions. To hurl such accusations so casually demeans this institution. In the majority’s judgment, any resistance to its holding is beyond the pale of reasoned disagreement. To question its high-handed invalidation of a presumptively valid statute is to act (the majority is sure) with the purpose to “dis- parage,” “injure,” “degrade,” “demean,” and “humiliate” our fellow human beings, our fellow citizens, who are homo- sexual. All that, simply for supporting an Act that did no more than codify an aspect of marriage that had been unquestioned in our society for most of its existence— indeed, had been unquestioned in virtually all societies for virtually all of human history. It is one thing for a society to elect change; it is another for a court of law to impose change by adjudging those who oppose it hostes humani generis, enemies of the human race.
Scalia says that the court’s holding – while limited to the Defense of Marriage Act – is a sure sign that the majority is willing to declare gay marriage a constitutional right.
It takes real cheek for today’s majority to assure us, as it is going out the door, that a constitutional requirement to give formal recognition to same-sex marriage is not at issue here—when what has preceded that assurance is a lecture on how superior the majority’s moral judgment in favor of same-sex marriage is to the Congress’s hateful moral judgment against it. I promise you this: The only thing that will “confine” the Court’s holding is its sense of what it can get away with.
And, he says, the holding will short circuit the debate over gay marriage that should have been carried out in the states.
In the majority’s telling, this story is black-and-white: Hate your neighbor or come along with us. The truth is more complicated. It is hard to admit that one’s political opponents are not monsters, especially in a struggle like this one, and the challenge in the end proves more than today’s Court can handle. Too bad. A reminder that disagreement over something so fundamental as marriage can still be politically legitimate would have been a fit task for what in earlier times was called the judicial temperament. We might have covered ourselves with honor today, by promising all sides of this debate that it was theirs to settle and that we would respect their resolution. We might have let the People decide.
But that the majority will not do. Some will rejoice in today’s decision, and some will despair at it; that is the nature of a controversy that matters so much to so many. But the Court has cheated both sides, robbing the winners of an honest victory, and the losers of the peace that comes from a fair defeat. We owed both of them better. I dissent.
Make no mistake, this will become one tool used to silence, shame, criminalize and persecute Christian and biblical beliefs in America. In fact, that is now already begun. I’ve witnessed what institutionalized persecution looks like in the third world. I recognize that is now being implemented here.
Remember the story of Sodom and Gommorah in the bible (Genesis 19:4-10). The men of the city came to Lot’s house and DEMANDED he hand out to them the two angels that had come so that they could gang rape them. Nothing would satisfy their lust and demand, and they became violent to force themselves upon Lot and his house to comply with their wickedness.
That nature of wickedness has not changed, and like the men of Sodom, the homosexuals are not going to rest in demanding we submit to their ways and/or be forced to accept it. Instead of a mob action at your door, they are a mob using government to criminalize your faith and have you declared and enemy of the state, an enemy of humanity if you dare refuse to submit.
Illegal immigrants who are amnestied are not eligible for ObamaCare, but employers will not have to pay any ObamaCare penalties if they hire them instead of American citizens.
Read it and weep folks. This will permanently ensure the MarxoFascists in the Democrat party remain in power for perpetuity. As soon as this is signed into law – they will work to make these ’46 MILLION Amnestied Mexicans – eligible for ObamaCare and made able to vote in the 2014 elections. In fact, plans to do those very things are already in the works.
Under the Gang of 8’s backroom immigration deal with Senators Schumer, Corker and Hoeven, formerly illegal immigrants who are amnestied will be eligible to work, but will not be eligible for ObamaCare. Employers who would be required to pay as much as a $3,000 penalty for most employees who receive an ObamaCare healthcare “exchange” subsidy, would not have to pay the penalty if they hire amnestied immigrants.
Consequently, employers would have a significant incentive to hire or retain amnestied immigrants, rather than current citizens, including those who have recently achieved citizenship via the current naturalization process.
The issue is really an “interaction effect” of the immigration proposal and ObamaCare itself.
Beginning in January, businesses with 50 or more full-time employees, that do not currently offer healthcare benefits that are considered “acceptable” by the Obama administration, must pay a penalty if at least one of their workers obtains insurance on a new government-run “exchange.” The penalty can be as much as $3,000 per employee.
Many employers have been preparing to cope with the new regulations by slashing the hours of full-timers to part-time status. Since “full-time,” in the language of ObamaCare, is averaging 30 hours per week, employers will, in general, receive the penalty if they have 50 or more employees who are working an average of 30 hours per week.
If the immigration bill becomes law, many employers could receive incentives of hundreds of thousands of dollars to hire amnestied immigrants over American citizens. In addition, these newly legalized immigrants could work “full-time,” an advantage for companies and businesses as well, while employers could lay off or diminish to “part-time” status, American workers.
Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner explains that he spoke with Alex Conant of Sen. Marco Rubio’s staff in April about the wrinkle, and was told that this was an issue that could be addressed during the legislative process.
“[T]he scenario you raise illustrates both the absurdity of ObamaCare, and why we have insisted on a lengthy process to review this legislation before any votes are taken,” Conant emailed Klein. “We always expected there might be a need for amendments to fix technical problems, and we’ll be interested in seeing what sort of amendments might be offered to improve this part of the legislation without giving ObamaCare to illegals- something Sen. Rubio has always said he will not support.”
However, as Klein said a couple of weeks ago, the issue has not been addressed and, in fact, the Schumer-Corker-Hoeven deal carries out what appears to be a major complication for American workers. Klein said that Conant did not respond to further requests for comment on this issue.
As for Conant’s comment in April about Rubio insisting on a “lengthy process to review this legislation before votes are taken,” that seems to have gone with the wind as well.
Conservative Talk Radio hosts are willfully missing the truth of what America is being transformed into.
Perhaps they do not want to sound like a ‘conspiracy freak’. Perhaps they do not want to sound alarming or cross an invisible line they know the Left will go berserk over. But for some reason, the voices of Conservatism are using a term to describe the corruption and perversion of business and corporations by the Obama regime that gives the radical Left in this country – more ammunition to pummel their ideological hatred of our former core mechanism of wealth creation.
The term they keep using is ‘Crony Capitalism’. That’s a term I’m formally taking issue with, because what is occurring is something far more sinister than just a simple case of political graft and corruption.
I am fond of hearing the Conservative radio hosts espouse the fact that ‘words mean things’. Good. Because yes, they do. Losing our language is one of many reasons this post-Constitutional Republic is foundering. Our society led by the Obama media machine refuses to call sin what it is, refuses to call Jihadists what they are – but incessantly call what we used to consider to be good, evil, and celebrates evil as good. Something the Bible says woe to those that do (Isaiah 5:20).
Plain words and their meaning are something the Left in this country have bastardized to their advantage by controlling the language and crafting the narrative to fit their agenda. They twist words to pervert their meaning and then use them as a bludgeon on their opposition. At the same time, the Conservative Movement, being attacked by not only the Left, but the Ruling Class of their own party – are growing timid in calling things what they are, as if walking on eggshells is going to win over anyone to our ideological side.
The Left employs a rule weapon of their own design that says that the moment someone invokes Hitler or Nazism to make a comparison – they automatically lose the argument. Well – I never agreed to any such rule in the first place – and we’re at war with the Left as far as I’m concerned – so to hell with their rules. I never granted them such authority as to dictate how an argument must be made. I prefer to call things what they are. However, I think many are cowed by these types of ‘rules’ the Left sets up and they sometimes do not call things what they are to avoid an insult or a label. Others may refuse to make such comparisons because doing so they estimate is somehow an affront to history and trivializes the horrors suffered. I say nonsense. Such comparisons should serve as a warning of history repeating itself because we forget history.
Why am I taking issue with Conservatives using the term ‘Crony Capitalism’ to describe what the Obama regime and the Ruling Class are doing? Because that term is not what is actually taking place.
Leftists are succeeding in convincing America that the entire concept of Capitalism is evil, flawed and wrong. They will point to pundits like Limbaugh and Levin who use the term ‘Crony Capitalism’ as some kind of ‘proof’ that Capitalism is not only evil evidenced by the term itself, but wholly corruptible and therefore must be discarded. While certainly cronyism is at play and has been an issue in politics in America for as long as anyone can remember (Cook County, IL anyone?) – Obama and his Democrats have taken it to a level far above and beyond cronyism and graft.
Now, folks, I don’t want to be misunderstood. I’m a capitalist. Don’t get me wrong. But look at all the bailouts that have taken place. Part of capitalism is when something fails, it fails. When an investment doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. You can’t bail out everybody. And once you start picking people you’re bailing out, then you’ve got crony capitalism, and that ain’t good. And what we have now, you have these various bailouts, you have government funding, chosen industries which can’t make it on their own and often can’t even make it with government help. All the Solyndras, for example, and right now the electric cars. I don’t mean to harp on them, but you take your pick. Industries that can’t make it and therefore shouldn’t, the market will always tell you the truth about things. Industries that shouldn’t make it then get propped up. That is not capitalism, and it’s artificial. It isn’t real.
Winners and losers are being picked by the government and you no longer have capitalism and you longer have free markets. And now there are corporate entities who care about immigration for one reason only: cheap labor. What happens in the country, couldn’t care less. They’re citizens of the world. They’re gonna have customers wherever. So they’re not ideologically sympathetic any longer. So, folks, we have to admit here that despite all the talk about the middle class and class warfare, big government, crony capitalism, crony socialism, seems to be the objective of both parties now.
What Rush describes here is something far more sinister and oppressive than the term ‘crony capitalism’ conveys. What Rush described is not crony capitalism.
It’s fascism. A Mussolini-styled form of Fascism.
And that IS the objective of both political parties and any business or corporation that stands to make a profit by getting in bed with government.
Fascism in it’s purest sense is Socialism with a Capitalist facade, continuing the illusion that wealth and property are still sovereign in the hands of the individual, while the state regulates and directs it.
Where socialism sought totalitarian control of a society’s economic processes through direct state operation of the means of production, fascism sought that control indirectly, through domination of nominally private owners. Where socialism nationalized property explicitly, fascism did so implicitly, by requiring owners to use their property in the “national interest”—that is, as the autocratic authority conceived it. (Nevertheless, a few industries were operated by the state.) Where socialism abolished all market relations outright, fascism left the appearance of market relations while planning all economic activities. Where socialism abolished money and prices, fascism controlled the monetary system and set all prices and wages politically. In doing all this, fascism denatured the marketplace. Entrepreneurship was abolished. State ministries, rather than consumers, determined what was produced and under what conditions.
Is that not exactly what Rush described on his radio program excerpt above? Compare the institutionalization of what we see happening by the Ruling Class and business under Obama and what Sheldon defines here as Fascism (my proofs in parenthesis):
Under fascism, the state, through official cartels (IRS, EPA, DHS, OSHA, USDA, et al.), controlled all aspects of manufacturing, commerce, finance, and agriculture. Planning boards set product lines, production levels, prices, wages, working conditions, and the size of firms (are you paying attention? ObamaCare anyone?). Licensing was ubiquitous; no economic activity could be undertaken without government permission. Levels of consumption were dictated by the state, and “excess” incomes had to be surrendered as taxes or “loans” (Tax the rich, ban large sodas, eat more arugula, etc.)
Any of this sound familiar? It should. It’s the transformational process we are currently witnessing taking shape by the hand of Obama and his ‘cartels’ in all the Alphabet agencies of government. What Sheldon defines of Fascism is already being implemented in full by Obama. And the Drones and the Welfare Class are cheering for it. But there’s more in Sheldon’s definition of Fascism, and this is essentially what Rush himself was describing:
Fascism embodied corporatism, in which political representation was based on trade and industry rather than on geography. In this, fascism revealed its roots in syndicalism, a form of socialism originating on the left. The government cartelized firms of the same industry, with representatives of labor and management serving on myriad local, regional, and national boards—subject always to the final authority of the dictator’s economic plan. Corporatism was intended to avert unsettling divisions within the nation, such as lockouts and union strikes. The price of such forced “harmony” was the loss of the ability to bargain and move about freely.
Corporatism, cartelizing firms, government boards, always subject to the final authority of a dictator’s economic plan. This is what is being done under Obama – a true Imperial Presidency burgeoning on a defacto dictatorship.
Benito Mussolini established Fascism as Italy’s economic model. As a Marxist, he modified the aspects of full government control by using Class warfare and declaring individuals who resist the ‘collective’ as being ‘selfish’.
“The citizen in the Fascist State is no longer a selfish individual who has the anti-social right of rebelling against any law of the Collectivity. The Fascist State with its corporative conception puts men and their possibilities into productive work and interprets for them the duties they have to fulfill”. – Benito Mussolini, Biography (p. 280)
The overall theme of Obama’s economics and the Democrat party itself is embodied in what Mussolini himself wrote. The Left in this country declares those who do not embrace them and their policies as ‘anti-social’ (racists, bigots, homophobes etc.). Anyone recall Obama lecturing us about “collective salvation”?
“The citizen in the Fascist State is no longer a selfish individual who has the anti-social right of rebelling against any law of the Collectivity”.
This is what Obama is actually talking about folks; Fascism. It’s what ‘collective salvation’ means. He’s transforming America into a Fascist state right before our eyes.
Using the term ‘Crony Capitalism’ diminishes what is actually taking shape.
So let’s call them what they are – and what they are institutionalizing what it is.
If we want to be original – since much of what the Obama regime and the Democrat party is doing is a hybrid of Marxism, Socialism and Fascism – I choose to refer to Obama and the Ruling Class in this country as MARXOFASCISTS.
A former Soviet warns us that we have been transformed into what she escaped from and notes the similarities of Obama’s regime and that of her former Soviet Overlords.
I love to hear the stories and warnings from those that have lived through hell on earth and warn us about making the same mistakes. A relative of mine through marriage lived through Hitler’s rise to power in Germany, and gave us all stern warnings and lectures the last few Thankgivings about the similarities of what he saw take shape in his youth and what America is being transformed into by Barrack Hussein Obama II.
There are warnings from those who escaped Castro’s Cuba who cannot help but notice the similarities in rhetoric, program and application of Communism with Obama and his MarxoFascists in power. In the last few weeks we have learned just how Soviet we have become under Obama. Our phones are tapped, our e-mails collected and stored, everything we do digitally is collated, stored and known to the government. While Obama pardons illegals and Jihad terrorists like the Taliban, his giant machine has targeted Conservative America for scrutiny and harm. Just as so many Communist and Socialist regimes have done to their own people time and again.
But we continue to assume (wrongly) that we are free and not like those genocidal dictatorships. We have simply grown accustomed to our own chains and implementation of Socialism at the hand of the Oligarchy in Washington D.C.
Those that have lived through similar hell know what they see happening in America today via Obama and the Democrats, for they have seen it all before, and sometimes barely survived it.
Svetlana Kunin at Investors.com is yet another of those voices warning us of what Obama has turned our nation into, for he matches the style and rhetoric of the old Soviet Party thugs who terrorized the Russian people for over 70 years. She would know. She escaped it during the height of the Cold War.
President Obama insists his policies are driven by a “common sense” approach. He also speaks in terms of “we the people” and “the government is us.”
Such declarations are reminiscent of old Soviet posters displayed for all to see: “ALL POWER BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE” and “PEOPLE AND COMMUNIST PARTY ARE ONE.”
But the real power in the USSR was in the hands of Communist Party leaders. They, in the name of the people, defined foes of centralized government as “enemies of the people.”
Similarly, Obama’s Department of Homeland Security has defined right-wing extremists as “those that are mainly anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority.”
His National Security Agency has specified that in addition to gun owners and veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, right-wing extremists also “may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”
Soviet bureaucrats were justified in harassing and persecuting “enemies of the people.” IRS bureaucrats, empowered by NSA definitions, feel free to harass and intimidate people and groups who question administration policies.
Tea Party groups that want the government to follow the American founding documents are right-wing extremists, and pro-Israel Jewish groups need extra scrutiny by the IRS as potential terrorists.
To watch citizens in every corner of life, the Soviets relied on embedded snoops who reported on conversations and moods of co-workers and friends. The Soviets would envy the tools available to the Obama administration to spy on American citizens today.
Soviet leaders freely sacrificed citizens to reinforce their agenda, cover up incompetence and retain power. They loved to use teachable moments to demonstrate what happens to citizens who do not follow government directives.
Information accumulated on citizens was handily available and used by all forms of state media to publicly denounce, humiliate and punish non-conformists.
In the name of security, the NSA needs to use all tools available to catch terrorists. Therefore, the NSA is justified in accessing personal data of American citizens, and the Justice Department under Attorney Gen. Eric Holder spies on journalists’ emails and phone conversations.
In the Obama administration’s war on non-conformist media, Holder was preparing a show-trial when DOJ spied on Fox News correspondent James Rosen and his parents.
Few noticed the fate of the American Internet prodigy Aaron Swartz, who committed suicide in January at age of 26. In an online “manifesto” in 2008 Swartz wrote: “Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves.”
Obama’s Justice Department filed multiple charges against Swartz for advocating free virtual public access to information on the Internet. He faced $1 million in fines plus 35 years in prison. Was Justice also preparing a show-trial against Swartz?
Soviet Communists professed “FREEDOM AND EQUALITY FOR ALL HUMANITY.” President Obama talks about fairness, equality and social justice.
Like Communist Party leaders in Moscow, government leaders and their acolytes in Washington lead lavish lifestyles. Soviet citizens faced constant shortages of basic necessities. Here, food stamp enrollment is up 70%.
With the implementation of ObamaCare, life in America will have even more in common with that in Soviet Russia. As members of the government had in the USSR, members of Congress will have dedicated, taxpayer-paid clinics with upscale technology and care. The rest of us will have to rely on less-expensive, low-quality medical services.
But while President Obama’s use of rhetoric, social policies and intimidation has a lot in common with Soviet Communists, his administration doesn’t rationalize all means of production. “If you talk to us, it turns out we’re pretty common-sense folks,” Obama said at a fund-raiser this month. “We don’t want to tax all businesses out of business.”
In fact, he needs rich patrons such as Warren Buffett, Bill Gates and Google’s Eric Schmidt. Crony capitalism as practiced by his administration has more in common with “the merger of corporate and government power” that was Benito Mussolini’s approach in Italy.
Americans as a result don’t need to worry about toilet paper shortages as experienced in the former Soviet Union and in communist Venezuela today. We’ll have our toilet paper, just not our liberty and freedom.

The right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances is apparently a right only allowed if you are a Leftist.
Breaking on Breitbart, TEA Party protesters were being blocked by Capitol Hill Police from attending Immigration rally on the other side of the Capitol. Apparently, protesting tyranny is a right we little people no longer possess unless it’s ‘granted’ by the State. And then, they have the right to tell us how, where and when we can “protest”.
Capitol Hill police are trying to block activists attending Wednesday’s “Audit the IRS” rally from also attending a nearly day-long press conference on immigration, hosted by Reps. Steve King and Louie Gohmert. The IRS rally is on the west side of the Capitol, while the immigration event is on the east side. Organizers for the IRS event were told by Hill police that “your people” can only assemble on the west side. Organizers were told to remove the activists from the immigration event.
…”The Capitol police are violating our rights to assembly and association,” Mooneyhan told Breitbart News. “How does our permit limit the rights of individuals to attend public events. It’s intimidation.”
Mooneyhan added, “How do they even know these are ‘our people?’ Did they look them up through PRISM?” PRISM is the controversial NSA program that reportedly tracks internet and email communication.
When the Rule of Law no longer ensures justice, only anarchy and totalitarianism results.
A local example of the fact that average Americans are no longer free to protect themselves, their property or their lives ends up being reported by a BRITISH news organization. This story is but a microcosm of what is happening in the nation at-large. A man faces prison for daring to hold accountable, those who were destroying his private property and likewise, a sovereign state was reprimanded by the Supreme Court for daring to hold accountable those who are destroying the private sovereignty of the state and it’s laws.
The SCOTUS ruling today says that a state has no right to protect it’s borders and require proof of citizenship in order to vote due to Federal Law not being enforced by the Obama regime, and thus requiring the state to coddle law breakers and protect their illegal status.
The local story of vandalism from New York is similar due the fact that the state has decided that an individual has no right to protect his property from vandals or criminals, because as in Arizona – if you decided to attempt to do something right to protect yourself from the lawless, the one who will be found facing judgment – is you. We have arrived at the point where we have no right to self defense from the criminal element, because the state reserves the right to make all decisions.
This story is an affirmation of our serfdom, and the coddling of wickedness to a stature of protection.
Jesse Daniels, 53, is accused of endangering the welfare of children for the actions he took after catching four boys in the act of vandalizing his father-in-law’s home over the weekend. With extensive damage done to the inside of the house, Daniels and his wife called 911 — and he went inside of the residence to confront the boys.
But that’s not all: Daniels put the kids inside of a closet while he waited for authorities to arrive. It was this latter action that created an even bigger legal conundrum.
The vandalism unfolded in Clyde, New York, a small town between between Rochester and Syracuse. Daniels lives next door to the home — his father-in-law’s residence that is under continued renovation — and when he heard noises and saw the lights on, he knew something was wrong.
The incident unfolded around 9 p.m. Saturday when Jesse Daniels said he told his wife to call 911 after he heard loud noises coming from the home next door and saw an individual striking a wall with a hammer.
Daniels tells 13WHAM News he ran next door and found four children, ages eight and ten, doing damage to the property. Daniels said he took a hammer from one of the kids and corralled them into a closet while he waited for police to arrive. Daniels estimated that the damage to his father-in-law’s property exceeds $40,000.
Clyde Village Police took the children back to their parents and filed felony criminal charges of Burglary 2nd Degree and Criminal Mischief 2nd Degree. Those cases will be handled in Family Court and the results of each case is likely to remain sealed.
Now, here’s where the details take a turn. Two days after this debacle, the police went back to Daniels’ home and arrested him. The parents of the children, claiming that the man threatened the kids with the hammer and was rough with them, insisted that charges be filed. So, Daniels faces four counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
The local man could face up to one year in county jail for each offense, meaning that a total of four years of detention, pending Daniels receives the max penalty, could be his ultimate ramification.
The children’s motivation for the attack on the home isn’t known, however WHAM-TV reports that Daniels claims that the boys were riding ATVs earlier in the evening on Saturday and that his wife told them to get off of their property. The home attack may have been a retaliatory act, he contends.
Accounts of what unfolded that night differ greatly. While Daniels says he merely put the children in the closet and told them to “be cool” until authorities arrived, the parents of the kids claim that Daniels went as far as to grab one of them by the throat; the boys, they claim, are traumatized by what unfolded.
Regardless of the exact details, the home is severely damaged. And after spending years renovating it for and with his father-in-law, Daniels isn’t happy.
“It just looked like a bomb went off it really did I can’t believe the power that it took to send (electrical) outlets six-inches into the wall,” he told WHAM-TV. “I’m very happy the children didn’t get hurt because porcelain shatters any one time they could’ve been blinded, they could’ve been slashed in the throat with a piece of porcelain.”
At least one of the parents is calling for increased charges against Daniels, despite admitting that the children’s actions were unacceptable.
According to FBI Agent James Spiropoulos, investigators accessed a Postal Service computer system that “incorporates a Mail Isolation Control and Tracking (MICT) programwhich photographs and captures an image of every mail piece that is processed.” Agents were able to obtain front and back images of about 20 mail pieces that had been processed “immediately before the mail piece addressed to Mayor Bloomberg.”
The WSJ is reporting that in addition to monitoring cell phone records, emails and web activity, the National Security Agency is monitoring credit card transactions. “NSA has established similar relationships with credit-card companies, three former officials said.”
While for many the news this week of government spying on Americans is shocking – those of us who know what Obama and his MarxoFascists are and what they are doing – knew months ago that some kind of massive nefarious spy program was going on under Obama.
Back in early February – this blog reported what MarxoFascist crone Maxine Waters said publicly about a ‘secret database of everything on every individual”
Now we know what she was referring to. She knew back then, and probably much earlier than she let it slip, that Obama was installing a secret massive surveillance monster that would know everything there was to know about you. This massive Soviet-inspired domestic spy apparatus targets average American citizens, not foreign Jihadists and foreign enemies as the media is attempting to tell us. An apparatus that indeed, will have information about everything on every individual. What you read, what you buy, what you believe, what you own, what you eat and what your medical condition is. Information that can be used against you for any reason the government deems necessary at any time.
Or as we saw with the IRS Scandal, PUNISH you.
That means you. That means me. Waters and her Politburo Comrades in D.C. have known full well about this domestic spy apparatus. In fact GOP Judenrat’s Lindsey Graham and John McCain support the NSA and Obama’s domestic data trove. Perhaps this is why John Boehner and Mitch McConnell act as silent co-conspirators in this MarxoFascist Coup? They remain silent while Obama and his cronies are perpetrating one violation of the Constitution and our rights after another with little to no outrage or condemnation.
Meanwhile the state grows ever bigger, more menacing, more entrenched and more determined to make everyone in America a criminal it can act against as it sees need.
This is how it was in the Soviet Union for the average Russian. They were automatically guilty of something, and all the info the Soviet State had on the individual could be used as evidence in a case to make that person ‘go away’.
Don’t think that cannot happen here, because it already IS happening here, right in front of you. But like the Jews in 1930’s Europe, many simply refuse to believe this can possibly be happening.
What I find hilarious is the fact that the very cretins who were excoriating George Bush for the NSA wiretaps of FOREIGN phone calls coming INTO the USA from known Jihadists, who were even calling for his impeachment over that – are today applauding even worse. What Bush had done was to LIMIT the wiretaps to specific criteria dealing with FOREIGN terrorists. Obama’s NSA targets every American citizen WHILE absolving known Jihadists.
On December 16, 2005, TheNew York Times ran a front-page story revealing that the Bush administration, since shortly after 9/11, had been allowing the National Security Agency (NSA) to wiretap — without seeking a court warrant — phone calls involving U.S. residents, provided that in each case: (a) at least one party to the call was situated overseas, and (b) the American was a known contact of a terrorist organization.
So these creeps who stood and decried that action, threatening impeachment, are today telling us to “calm down” over revelations Obama is spying on everything we do, because this is not new. Well that is a lie – IT IS NEW, because what Obama has done is to direct the NSA to WIRETAP ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS. And not just phone calls, but everything we do online, everything we purchase and anything we write or donate to.
And the Ruling Class Statists who hated Bush because he was not a MarxoFascist – are today applauding and defending what Obama has done.
Which is to turn America into a giant gulag.
U.S. Collects Vast Data Trove
NSA Monitoring Includes Three Major Phone Companies, as Well as Online Activity
The National Security Agency’s monitoring of Americans includes customer records from the three major phone networks as well as emails and Web searches, and the agency also has cataloged credit-card transactions, said people familiar with the agency’s activities.
The disclosure this week of an order by a secret U.S. court for Verizon Communications Inc.’s phone records set off the latest public discussion of the program. But people familiar with the NSA’s operations said the initiative also encompasses phone-call data from AT&T Inc. and Sprint Nextel Corp., records from Internet-service providers and purchase information from credit-card providers.
…Meanwhile, the Obama administration acknowledged Thursday a secret NSA program dubbed Prism, which a senior administration official said targets only foreigners and was authorized under U.S. surveillance law. The Washington Post and the Guardian reported earlier Thursday the existence of the previously undisclosed program, which was described as providing the NSA and FBI direct access to server systems operated by tech companies that includeGoogle Inc., Apple Inc., Facebook Inc., Yahoo Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Skype. The newspapers, citing what they said was an internal NSA document, said the agencies received the contents of emails, file transfers and live chats of the companies’ customers as part of their surveillance activities of foreigners whose activity online is routed through the U.S. The companies mentioned denied knowledge or participation in the program.
…NSA also obtains access to data from Internet service providers on Internet use such as data about email or website visits, several former officials said. NSA has established similar relationships with credit-card companies, three former officials said.
It couldn’t be determined if any of the Internet or credit-card arrangements are ongoing, as are the phone company efforts, or one-shot collection efforts. The credit-card firms, phone companies and NSA declined to comment for this article.
A Secret Federal Government Program called PRISM taps into U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time.
Welcome to Obama’s Soviet Amerika Comrades, where just yesterday it was revealed that the Obama regime has been collecting data on ALL cell phone customers of Verizon by a SECRET COURT ORDER.
Tonight we learn that there’s ANOTHER SECRET FEDERAL PROGRAM called PRISM, which logs directly into the 9 major internet service provider servers, and collects every shred of data from your e-mails, to your pictures, to the videos and websites you visit – in order to track a person and create a profile of you for the government.
If you wondered WHY the major internet companies have been petitioned to the White House over the years, it is because they have been “asked” to cooperate with the Government so that their customers can have their information collected. We used to call that spying. It is formally known as FASCISM; when a private company is run by or controlled via regulation by the government to act as one of it’s agents.
Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Apple and other internet service providers including Cloud sharing services are part of the government’s efforts to collect every shred of information they can glean from you. From your politics to your likes and dislikes, to your movements. These private companies are actually defacto agents for the Obama State.
Which is why I refer to Obama and the Democrats and the GOP Leadership as MarxoFascists – because that is what they are. Fascists who love the ideals of Marx and all-powerful government running every aspect of your life. Obtaining every shred of information about your life.
Not the Soviets, not the East Germans not Mao’s Chinese had such a widespread spy network being used against it’s own citizens as we are learning of Obama’s vast secret spy and intimidation programs.
And please, before you try to rationalize this additional government snooping program as necessary for security – do recall that it was just last month that Jihadists bombed the Boston Marathon and had law enforcement and government running around like Keystone cops trying to find and apprehend them. None of this massive data collected prevented that from happening, and I daresay – that is not the intent behind the collection of every shred of evidence about you. It’s not about keeping Americans safe from Jihadists. It’s about keeping Obama and his MarxoFascists safe from you.
Obama did exactly what he said he was going to do – fundamentally transform this country. And in five years, he has transformed America into a Police State gulag ready to go to war on the citizens he despises.
When does any of this become treason in the minds of those we elected to be our servants? Just today Obama opened up unlimited U.S. airspace to Saudi Arabia, meaning they can FLY PLANES to any airport in the USA without any restrictions whatsoever. I guess 19 hijackers, a majority of whom were from Saudi Arabia who flew planes into our buildings on 9-11, is something Obama figures Americans have forgotten. Now we simply have to ask how long it will be before a Saudi Airliner is fitted with a nuke from say – Pakistan, Iran or North Korea for detonation over a major American city??
The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time.
The highly classified program, code-named PRISM, has not been disclosed publicly before.
Obama’s NSA collecting the phone records of millions of Americans daily, without warrant, oversight or your permission.
Welcome to Obama’s Amerika folks, the Soviet Utopia, reconstituted on the rotting corruption of our once free nation.
Breaking from the Guardian in the UK, Townhall reports that Obama’s National Security Agency has mandated that phone-provider Verizon, provide on an on-going daily-basis, the phone records of it’s customers.
Funny thing is, I recall how BESERK the anti-war Leftists went when it was learned that President Bush was wiretapping foreign phone calls from Jihadist nations INTO the USA. Today – DEAD SILENCE.
It was never about our liberties for the anti-war Left. It’s about the advancement of their ‘Marxist revolution’ and always has been.
But just ask yourself – what in the world does Obama need with YOUR phone records? WHOM you talk to? What ‘unique identifiers’ (key words in your conversation) are they listening for?
Given what this regime was just found doing to AP, this looks to be more of the same gulag-like police-state data collections that many of us are warning you all is taking place. Eric Holder’s Department of Justice cast a wide net in his search of AP phone logs, as evidenced in his agency naming journalist James Rosen a co-conspirator in an espionage charge in order to obtain all his phone records, but now we learn that this practice of going after private phone records is not just limited to high-profile critics of the Obama regime, but everyday average Joe and Jill’s as the NSA is targeting millions of Americans for daily data collection.
The purpose? Well, it creates an atmosphere of fear of saying anything against Obama and this regime or it’s agenda. It catalogs whom you associate with, and provides the regime with anything and everything you say and associate with for potential charges in the near future.
Think that far-fetched? You might want to consider what U.S. attorney Bill Killian at Obama’s DOJ just said yesterday. He stated that saying anything negative about Islam violates the Civil Rights laws of Muslims and they WILL start prosecuting for that violation: “Could an Internet posting or letter in the mail or a phone call or a personal confrontation (against Islam) constitute a violation of those statutes?” he asked, citing 18 US Code 241 and 18 US Code 245. “Yes, it could.”
“In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S., the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights,”
Understand now why potentially, Obama is collecting all our phone records?
This is how the Soviet Union’s tyranny worked – EVERYONE was automatically considered a criminal by the state, and anything you ever said, did or thought that could be used as a pretext for your arrest was what the Soviet did. We should not marvel at this. It’s what every single despotic Left regime does to their own people when it puts down the iron fist of tyranny.
Welcome to Obama’s gulag
JUST IN: NSA Collecting Phone Records of Millions of Americans Daily
Well here’s another scandal ready for the Obama administration. It was revealed today that the National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon. This top secret order was issued in April.
The document shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of US citizens are being collected indiscriminately and in bulk – regardless of whether they are suspected of any wrongdoing.
The secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (Fisa) granted the order to the FBI on April 25, giving the government unlimited authority to obtain the data for a specified three-month period ending on July 19.
Under the terms of the blanket order, the numbers of both parties on a call are handed over, as is location data, call duration, unique identifiers, and the time and duration of all calls. The contents of the conversation itself are not covered.
Here is just another example of the government overreaching into the lives of millions of Americans without our permission. The Guardian reports:
The unlimited nature of the records being handed over to the NSA is extremely unusual. Fisa court orders typically direct the production of records pertaining to a specific named target who is suspected of being an agent of a terrorist group or foreign state, or a finite set of individually named targets.
The Guardian approached the National Security Agency, the White House and the Department of Justice for comment in advance of publication on Wednesday. All declined. The agencies were also offered the opportunity to raise specific security concerns regarding the publication of the court order.
The court order expressly bars Verizon from disclosing to the public either the existence of the FBI’s request for its customers’ records, or the court order itself.
Talk about a breach of privacy! Are you kidding me?! This administration has gone beyond any standards set by other administrations with this new unlimited order. What is it that the administration feels they need these documents for?
A type of data collection similar to this was started after 9/11/01, but was not nearly as widespread or as far reaching as this new order given in April. It seems from this order, the administration is trying to look at Americans’ communication habits and who we are talking to.
This is a whole new low for the Obama administration. Now we are seeing government reaching into our phone records? No longer is it just the media and Fox News reporters, but now every American can be watched by the NSA. Will this finally be what puts Liberals over the edge? They were against it when Bush did a much smaller version. Now we can see how far the hypocrisy goes. Will Jay Carney be able to comment on this? How will the Obama administration defend themselves now?
