Oh! God Forbid a Member of the Minority Party Might “Object”!

by Scott Creighton

Some of the controversial provisions of the Patriot Act that were set to expire have just been extended until next year thanks to our “democrats” in the Senate. They did so with a voice vote with no discussion on the subject. When asked why they didn’t address some of the issues that Americans have concerns with, one democrat tried to pass off this crap as an answer…

“I would have preferred to add oversight and judicial review improvements to any extension of expiring provisions in the USA Patriot Act,” said Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. “But I understand some Republican senators objected.”  MSNBC

(translation: Hillary’s Hitman, Rahm, told us to)

What a dramatic change for Patrick Leahy. I remember when he respected the constitution and our person freedoms. I remember when he stood up for us. It wasn’t that long ago, just under a different administration is all…

Last year, Congress quietly made it easier for this President or any President to declare martial law. That’s right: In legislation added at the Administration’s request to last year’s massive Defense Authorization Bill, it has now become easier to bypass longtime posse comitatus restrictions that prevent the federal government’s use of the military, including a federalized National Guard, to perform domestic law enforcement duties.

When the Insurrection Act is invoked, the President can — without the consent of the respective governors — federalize the National Guard and use it, along with the entire military, to carry out law enforcement duties. [This] is a sweeping grant of authority to the President. [. . . ] In addition to the cases of insurrection, the Act can now be invoked to restore public order after a terrorist attack, a natural disaster, a disease outbreak, or — and this is extremely broad — ‘other condition’.[102]  Patric Leahy, 2007 in which he discussed the John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007

Well, God Forbid a republican member of the minority party just might object to something Patrick Leahy feels it’s his constitutional duty to do. I guess that makes sense though. When you have the White House and congress run by neoliberal fascists passing themselves off as democrats as in the “Clinton New (wink wink) Dem” Party, then you have to play ball and make up whatever pathetic excuse comes to mind. Back in the days of real journalism Leahy’s remarkably stupid comment would have ignited at least a little bit of a firestorm. Today sadly, it’s just business as usual.

We should just rename the Senate “Clinton’s House of Neoliberal Lemming Lords” and let them all serve for life. In fact, lets just let them serve for life and then they can automatically appoint their dwindling genetic pool inbred children to take their places when they leave. It’ll save all that money we would spend running those rigged elections, won’t it?  Hell! That’s a DEFICIT NEUTRAL PLAN right there… I think I’m on to something!

Then they can use their freshly minted Patriot Act and some gung-ho 19 year old National Guardsman “Patriot” to come kick in my door after they declare me an “insurgent” for writing stuff… like this. After all, free-speech is only free for us (non corporate persons that is) if we don’t go too far and say something that might incite a bad thought in “the terrorists” mind, right?

Indeed, on February 3 Dennis Blair, director of National Intelligence told the House Intelligence Committee that it was now “defined policy” that the U.S. government can murder its own citizens on the sole basis of someone in the government’s judgment that an American is a threat. No arrest, no trial, no conviction, just execution on suspicion of being a threat.

This shows how far the police state has advanced. A presidential appointee in the Obama administration tells an important committee of Congress that the executive branch has decided that it can murder American citizens abroad if it thinks they are a threatCounterPunch

All that executive branch run Department of Homeland Security has to do, is take them abroad, set them loose on the street, and kill ’em. Think that’s crazy? Think again.

The people who should have been on trial are the people who abducted her, disappeared her young children, shipped her across international borders, violated her civil liberties, tortured her apparently for the fun of it, raped her, and attempted to murder her with two gunshots to her stomach. Instead, the victim was put on trial and convicted.

This is the unmistakable hallmark of a police state. And this victim is an American citizen. CounterPunch

Just for the record, I’m not planning on traveling abroad anytime soon.

EPA Head: No Warming Since 1995 Doesn’t Mean Warming Isn’t Occurring

***UPDATE**** Check out “75 Reasons to be Skeptical of “Global Warming””

(Obama is going to push through the Globalist “cap and trade” Deindustrialization and Carbon Tax for the World Bank Plan, no matter what evidence comes out. And just like the Handover Trillions to the Corrupt Bankers Plan (TARP bailout), the Give Money to the Automakers to OffShore US Jobs Plan (the AutoMaker bailout), the Big Business and Industry bailout (Stimulus Plan), the NAFTA Superhighway construction Plan (“High Speed Rail”), the Insurance Industry and Big Pharma Bailout Plan (Obamacare), the Social Security Destabilization and Corporate Giveaway Plan (The Jobs Bill), and the Privatization of Public Education Plan (Race to the Top)… Obama will speed through the process with Al Gore’s fraudulent “20 FEET OF RISING TIDES!” scare tactics at the forefront. Sadly, just like when the Clintons revamped welfare crippling families, repealed Glass Steagal which allowed banks to rape America, and passed off NAFTA as a good thing for our economy, the dems and “progressives” out there will applaud this horrible bill till they finally turn around and look at it in hindsight and realize it’s monsterous effects on America. There is no excuse for such blind loyalty in the face of all the facts that have been coming out about this “global warming” scam.  The G77 countries refused it, civil society refused it, the Copenhagen Conference refused it, the congress refused it… and now Obama is going to try and pass it by fiat… by executive order.)

by Steve Watson, Infowars

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson engaged in doublespeak of the highest degree today as she told reporters that no statistically significant increase in global temperatures since 1995 does not mean that there has not been human induced global warming.

“The science regarding climate change is settled, and human activity is responsible for global warming,” Jackson said, adding that the EPA needs more funding to ensure climate change legislation is passed.

JibJab – Big Box Mart (and a Little History Lesson)

Hillary Clinton – ex board of directors of WalMart prior to NAFTA which her husband passed on behalf of WalMart…. thanks Shillary – I guess she is paying Slick Willy back now by making him the neoliberal “Emperor” of Haiti

And the board Hillary Clinton sat on was rabidly anti-union, was exploiting sweatshop labor around the world, discriminating against women workers, forcing workers to labor off the clock and destroying communities that did not want them.  Common Dreams

Hillary Clinton is literally standing on the corpses of the 200,000 dead Haitian people while attempting to stuff her pockets, by way of installing her husband in a lucrative position with the Haitian government.(Slick Willy) will be put in charge of all that aid money given by well meaning people all across the world, to do with as he sees fit. (I wonder how many interns he will be in charge of on his new Haitian plantation)  American Everyman

So you think to yourself, how corrupt could this government get? How low will they go? Well, how about drug dealing? How about a video of a seated president (slick willy) admiting the CIA under Bush 41 was flying in cocaine to Mena, Ak. by the planeload? He admited it in front of the entire White House press corp on TV.  Then he lied about holding an investigation into the matter when he was governor of the state. Not “conspiracy theory, but readily admitted to by President Clinton live on TV. Don’t believe me? Go watch

Just so happens it’s the same corrupt two families that have been fucking this country over since Reagan got shot. By the way, did you know that the assasign’s family were close personal friends of the Bush family? and that John Hinckley’s father wanted Bush 41 to be president? Did you guys know that?

John Hinckley Jr. is the son of John Hinckley Sr., chairman of the oil company Vanderbilt Energy Corp., one of Vice President George H.W. Bush’s larger political and financial supporters in his 1980 presidential primary campaign against Ronald Reagan. Also, John Hinckley Jr.’s older brother, Vanderbilt vice president Scott Hinckley, and the Vice President’s son Neil Bush, had a dinner appointment scheduled for the next day.  Wiki

HuffPo –  “In late August, Whirlpool Corporation announced that by June 2010 it would be closing the doors of its refrigerator plant in Evansville, Ind., and moving its operations to Mexico, citing poor sales due to a depressed housing market.”  “The labor community, naturally, was in an uproar, pointing to the $20 million that the Whirlpool Corporation received as part of the president’s economic stimulus package”  Whirlpool  takes the Stimulus Package Money and Goes to Mexico!

Washington Post – “The U.S. government is pouring billions into General Motors in hopes of reviving the domestic economy, but when the automaker completes its restructuring plan, many of the company’s new jobs will be filled by workers overseas.” Automakers in the Good Old U.S. of A. take billions in taxpayer bailout money and run to build plants… overseas!

ABC News – “At a meeting with President Obama Monday morning, Communist Party Secretary Yu Xheng Sheng told the U.S. president how well General Motors’ Chinese division was doing…. at a time when the nation’s unemployment rate has soared to levels not seen in decades and GM is cutting thousands of U.S. jobs, the company’s CEO is considering spending millions from its U.S. coffers — fattened by $50 billion in taxpayer aid — on its overseas operations…”

Democratically Controlled Senate Pass Reagan’s Wet Dream

by Scott Creighton

Now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your fucking retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends in Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you sooner or later cus they own this fuckin place. It’s a big club… and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club.”  George Carlin

A little while ago I wrote about a neoliberal based “Jobs Bill” proposal that promised to further undermine the Social Security system while simultaneously handing over billions to big business. The “jobs” bill has nothing to do with creating new jobs. Companies will simply fire existing employees and hire new ones who have been previously unemployed. Major US corporations like WalMart and others will simply hire the new employees at less money per hour than they were paying the ones they fired, which will save the companies millions in the first place. Then on the back side, these companies, thanks to this new “jobs bill”, will be exempt from paying the 6.2% Social Security payroll tax on the new, cheaper, employees. As if that wasn’t enough of a glad-hand for the companies stock holders, at the end of the year, these companies will get another $1,000 in tax credits.

The bill contain two major provisions. First, it would exempt businesses hiring the unemployed from the 6.2 percent Social Security payroll tax through December and give them an additional $1,000 credit if new workers stay on the job a full year.  MSNBC

The spin doctors for the neoliberal free market White House New Dems are spewing numbers like 1/4 of a million “new jobs” will be created by this bill while being “deficit neutral”. That number is a fraud just like Obama’s “2 million jobs created or saved” from his last Big Business Tax Giveaway Plan they marketed as a “Stimulus Package” (remember all those fictious congressional districts they made up?).

Washington’s Big Business backers know damn well that consumer confidence is dropping because people can’t afford to pay for shit these days. And that’s the ones who still have jobs.

This is a Reaganomics wet dream; hand billions over to their campaign donating buddies in big business and further undermine the Social Security system at the same time. A year from now you will have tons of congress critters standing up in front of any corporate owned tv camera they can find claiming that Social Security lost billions this year, therefore it has to be PRIVATIZED to save it. They won’t tell you that SS only “lost” that money because they decided to give it to Hillary Clinton’s friends at WalMart.  You are expected to forget that little tidbit of information.

Democrats will also then be able to say they created a 1/4 of a million jobs with this bill just in time for a mid-term election. They WONT tell you that they also created a 1/4 of a million firings and a huge net gain of profitability for their donors and Wall Street shareholders. That they won’t tell you.

 Expect to hear Glenn Beck call this “socialism” or some other nonsense.

Washington Times Covers Richard Gage and Controlled Demolition

(You heard me right, the Washington Times)

A lingering technical question about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks still haunts some, and it has political implications: How did 200,000 tons of steel disintegrate and drop in 11 seconds? A thousand architects and engineers want to know, and are calling on Congress to order a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center.

“In order to bring down this kind of mass in such a short period of time, the material must have been artificially, exploded outwards,” says Richard Gage, a San Francisco architect and founder of the nonprofit Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

… He is particularly disturbed by Building 7, a 47-story skyscraper, which was not hit by an aircraft, yet came down in “pure free-fall acceleration.” He also says that more than 100 first-responders reported explosions and flashes as the towers were falling and cited evidence of “multi-ton steel sections ejected laterally 600 ft. at 60 mph” and the “mid-air pulverization of 90,000 tons of concrete & metal decking…”  Washington Times
