Napolitano: NSA Testimony on Surveillance Programs ‘Bogus’… “Former state court Judge Andrew Napolitano said on Tuesday that officials from the National Security Agency “answered questions professionally” in their testimony before Congress — “but I still think it’s bogus.””
Former state court Judge Andrew Napolitano said on Tuesday that officials from the National Security Agency “answered questions professionally” in their testimony before Congress — “but I still think it’s bogus.”
“There was none of this as we got from Attorney General [Eric] Holder and FBI Director [Robert] Mueller,” Napolitano told Neil Cavuto on Fox News.He was referring to comments from Army Gen. Keith Alexander, the NSA’s director, on the agency’s two surveillance programs: one that gathers U.S. phone records and another that is designed to track the use of U.S.-based Internet servers by foreigners with possible links to terrorism.

Obama WANTS you to know Big Government is Watching You… “To be clear NOTHING is ever done to stop the ongoing rape and pillage of individual rights in Obama’s Amerika. Things were bound to get worse when almost the entire, so-called ‘New Media’ joined the jabbering MSM to paint a self-described ‘patriot’, who just wanted the best for the people of his own country, as a martyr/hero.”
It’s getting to the point where civilians need a ‘Truth Meter’ before venturing out the door each morning; a Truth Meter for a public at large steadily bombarded with lies, propaganda and more lies each waking day.
In a perfect world the Truth Meter would have a capacity something like the smart meter, now telling well-paid municipal bureaucrats who are no better than spies, who is in the house, how much electricity they are using, whether they are sleeping or active, watching the boob tube or tuned into Rush on the radio.
But lost in all the white noise average citizens are up against it in discerning who are the liars; who are the ‘bad guys’ or ‘good guys’ in the challenging playing field called life.
The talking heads of television trot out the same panels, who continue to state the obvious and to tediously tell folk what they already know. Radio talk show hosts are more than ever screaming out their frustrations at callers who are just trying to come in out of the storm and have someone listen momentarily to their worries and woes.
New technology would now allow cable companies to peer directly into television watchers’ homes and monitor viewing habits and reactions to product advertisements, warns the Washington Times.
Thomas R. Horn — ZENITH 2016: Did Something Begin In 2012?, Part 4… “The most penetrating response I received on the question of whether Obama could be the Antichrist came from Douglas W.

The most penetrating response I received on the question of whether Obama could be the Antichrist came from Douglas W. Krieger, Dene McGriff, and S. Douglas Woodward when I learned of their scholarly argument due out in book form in 2013 under the title “The Final Babylon”.
Drawing upon historical comparisons between the current administration’s rise to power and that of the Third Reich, the following excerpt is used by permission and should be required reading by Christians in particular:We begin by proposing a troubling issue for the reader’s consideration: If Antichrist were to be revealed in America, would the faithful recognize him?
Would Americans committed to spiritual values miss the same clues disclosing Antichrist’s true nature as did the Germans with Hitler?
There is little doubt that if a figure paraded himself in front of the American people resembling an easily stereotyped leader of the Third Reich—with a mousy moustache, an armband, and wearing a brown shirt—his character and agenda would be obvious to almost everyone.
Mounting the podium with an emotional appeal to our national loyalty, the adamant display of venom and vitriol against the enemies of the State, the promise of the restoration of our American “empire” through a continuing buildup of military might, the stark name calling identifying an appropriate scapegoat to fault for our problems—all of these factors would, at best, betray a would-be antichrist figure as a false messiah—or at worst, spotlight an artless actor who undoubtedly took us for fools.

Are these agency scandals being deliberately leaked by team Obama to cause Americans to hop on board for a new form of government?
Are these scandals all part of Obama’s coup d’tat on our government?
Why did the IRS plant a question with a reporter that would trigger a scandal implicating itself? Why was a subpoena leaked, implicating the DOJ for spying on Fox News’ journalist James Rosen? What better way to get Americans to hate their government than to tell them they’re being spied on by the NSA? Gee, thanks Mr. Snowden!

The past month’s news about our national government’s acceleration towards tyranny (“arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority”) made me recall the most memorable lines in “Like a Rolling Stone,” arguably Bob Dylan’s best work, and according to Rolling Stone magazine the best rock and roll song ever.
Dylan’s masterpiece is a sarcastic six-minute “See, I told you so” directed at a condescending high-society princess. She thought she had it all, only to see it disappear at the hands of a betraying, conniving beau. As a result, she is forced to fight for her everyday survival like most of the rest of us.
In his final verse, Dylan tells her:

" Domestic spying capabilities used by the National Security Agency to collect massive amounts of data on American citizens could soon be available to the Department of Homeland Security — a bureaucracy with the power to arrest citizens that is not subject to limitations imposed on the NSA.

Will NSA Whistle-Blower Be Hanged In Public Square As Monument To Federal Omnipotence?… “But Snowden didn’t reveal anything that many Americans were not already aware of or, at least, were suspicious about.

National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden has been accused of treason by a handful of lawmakers and media pundits for making public the Federal government’s habit of collecting Americans’ electronic communications data.But Snowden didn’t reveal anything that many Americans were not already aware of or, at least, were suspicious about.
The young insider simply blew the whistle in a way that disallowed what is America’s truest equivalent to Oceania’s Ministry of Truth to drown him out.While George Orwell’s 1984 mind molders worked in a sinister centralized location where they manipulated all mass-produced information to fit the government agenda, the reality of America’s information manipulation apparatus is far less centralized, if only slightly less sinister.
Surveillance is the act of removing transparency from one person while operating under a veil of secrecy yourself. Surveillance is a one-sided exploitation of cultural violence, like a street mugging backed by ideological rationalizations. To be able to invade the life of another human being at will; to catalog his hopes, dreams and weaknesses; to put yourself in a position to judge him from a discreet distance or undermine his future entirely: This is what surveillance is truly about.
The hyper-Orwellian National Security Agency database did not develop overnight, nor did it originate with the undocumented usurper currently occupying the people’s house. However, there is a new surveillance system currently evolving that can be laid at the feet of Barrack Hussein Obama: the Obamacare surveillance system.
The Obamacare surveillance system is growing as we speak, and it will be placed in the hands of the corrupt Internal Revenue Service extortion agency.

Hot mic catches NSA boss praising FBI chiefs for supportive testimony on surveillance programs

"Scandal." That one word pretty much summarizes the Obama administration’s second term – from Benghazi-gate, to the IRS’s all-out war on hundreds of conservative organizations, to the Justice Department’s "criminalization of journalism" through targeting, harassing and seizing the records of news reporters and editors.

It’s been a while since I’ve written much about the plague of so-called “gun violence” raging through our beloved homeland like a nasty strain of drug-resistant gonorrhea through an Occupy squatters’ camp. I must admit, the daily deluge of disgrace flowing forth from the White House has distracted me from the Democrats’ war on the Bill of Rights and simultaneously provided cover for those liberals who exploit tragedy to further their attempts to violate the inviolable.

In this regard, while Obama Inc. feigns outrage over the damage wrought to national security - via Snowden, NSA's whistle blower - exhorting that now terrorists will run amok, paradoxically, the fact of the matter is that these same leaders gutted the ability to actually track said domestic terrorists!

George Orwell’s famous novel, 1984, was published in 1949, and he predicted that people in the future would have no privacy, as governments would monitor all their activities. The “big brother is watching” phrase became well known.
But Orwell could never have predicted the technologies of the future, when he described a fictional system of oppression based on technologies that were available in 1949. In 1949, there were no personal computers, no cell phones, no internet, no satellites, etc. In the communist regimes of 1949, most people did not own telephones, therefore there were no phones to bug. Most people did not own radios and TVs, and the only way for the government to lie to people, was through newspapers, which the majority of people could not afford to buy on a regular basis.

I think it is kind of interesting that the IRS needs to arm itself with the kind of weapons our government is trying to vilify us for owning. What are they going to do? Force us to buy health care from one of the Presidents exchanges at gun point? What are they afraid of? If what they are doing is honorable, truthful and in line with the ideals of a constitutional republic then surely they would have nothing to fear. Why does the IRS need these high powered rifles?
Obama’s War on The First Amendment http://www.newyorkdailysun.com/obamas-war-on-the-first-amendment/
Obama’s War on The First Amendment
The fundamental transformation about which Barack Obama spoke during the 2008 campaign represents nothing less than a total rejection of all the values and traditions upon which the United States was founded, in particular, the first and perhaps the most sacred of our constitutional amendments:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, is reportedly vowing to use federal civil rights statutes to clamp down on offensive and inflammatory speech about Islam. It is a clear violation of the First Amendment right of free speech to use federal law to specifically protect Muslims from criticism.
But the Constitution and the rule of law are of no concern to Obama.
The assault by Killian on freedom of speech is consistent with the Obama’s long-term policy to protect and promote Islam by eroding the First Amendment, specifically, and the Constitution, in general. During its 2011 session, the United Nations Human Rights Council with the full support of the Obama Administration adopted Resolution 16/18, which called upon Western states to pass laws that would criminalize “defamation of religion” – i.e., criticism of Islam.
According to cnet, New York could become the first state to specifically legislate 3D printed guns and New York City could become the first city to do so. Legislation has been introduced in the empire state at both the state and city level which seeks to regulate and/or outright ban 3D printed guns and gun parts.
The NYC bill, introduced by Council Member Lewis Fidler, would make it a crime to produce any part of a firearm using a 3D printer unless you’re a licensed gunsmith.
At American Thinker, Joy Overbeck's article, Tyranny Advances by Nibbles, starts with these eloquent words:

" The Supreme Court on Monday struck down an Arizona state law that requires people registering to vote in federal elections to show proof of citizenship.
In a 7-2 vote, the court said the voter registration provision of the 2004 state law, known as Proposition 200, was trumped by a federal law, the 1993 National Voter Registration Act.

Only a few weeks ago, Graham breathlessly claimed that any effort to include gay binational couples in the immigration bill would cause him to withdraw his support for the legislation, effectively killing it.
Some of us at the time had been arguing that the Republicans were bluffing; that the GOP is desperate to get immigration reform passed in order to weaken the lock the Democratic party has on the Latino vote (a population on the rise in terms of its percentage of the electorate). There is no way the GOP is going to risk killing immigration reform for anything. At least not the Senate GOP.

As one of the Patriot leaders in the Carolinas, the partisan campaign conducted by Brigadier General Francis Marion and his irregular force during the American Revolution prevented South Carolina from completely succumbing to British control during the period between the capture of Charleston in May 1780 and the start of Major General Nathanael Greene’s campaign to recover the Southern Colonies in December 1780. During substantial segments of this period he alone held eastern South Carolina from the British and became known as “The Swamp Fox” for his exploits and elusiveness in harassing the British with his guerilla tactics.

” Serving as a member of Congress from Dayton, Ohio during the War to Prevent Southern Independence, his criticisms of the Lincoln regime earned him the reputation as the leader of the Democratic opposition.
The Republican Party smeared him and all other opponents as a “copperhead” a.k.a. snake in the grass. On May 5, 1863, sixty-seven heavily-armed soldiers broke into his home in the middle of the night and dragged him off to a military prison. This was done without any due process, as Lincoln had long ago illegally suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus.
He was said to be guilty of “discouraging enlistments” in the army with his criticisms of the Lincoln regime. A military order issued in the state of Ohio declared all such speech to be illegal, and military officers were to have dictatorial powers in deciding what kind of speech would be permitted there.
All of this was of course done at the direction of Abraham Lincoln.Lincoln apparently wanted Northerners to believe that all such critics were spies and traitors, so Congressman Vallandigham was deported to the state of Tennessee and placed in the hands of a Confederate Army commander.
Q. The White House has defended the use of “secret” e-mail accounts as sensible time management, since high-level officials are swamped with unwanted messages. Does the practice make it harder for agencies to find and turn over emails under public records requests and other inquiries?
A. That’s my reading of it. We’ve been pretty clear with agencies it is not a good practice to follow, and we don’t recommend that they authorize the use of personal e-mail accounts or alias accounts to conduct their business.
D.C. police officers need a refresher on when it’s legal to enter a home without a warrant, according to a report issued Wednesday by the city’s Police Complaints Board.
