Whatever the US Government Is Planning, It Is Already Practicing by Bill Sardi… “The US Marines already had a biological response team named “America’s 911 Response Force,” a name for this military unit that was coined a year prior to the events that unfolded on 9-11-2001. This same unit of 350 US Marines practiced handling a crisis on the streets of New York City on September 11, 1998″
One thing we have learned since 9-11 is that government agencies practice whatever schemes they have in mind before they occur. Take for instance the events that took place prior to the attack on the Twin Towers in New York on 9-11-2001.
The US Marines already had a biological response team named “America’s 911 Response Force,” a name for this military unit that was coined a year prior to the events that unfolded on 9-11-2001. This same unit of 350 US Marines practiced handling a crisis on the streets of New York City on September 11, 1998. The drill even included handling the unexpected collapse of the World Trade Center towers. Believe it or not, this US Marine force even had a patch on their uniforms showing the World Trade Center twin towers!
So skip forward to the present time with me. I read a disturbing report in the Daily Mail, a UK publication. Dated March 8, 2013, the Daily Mail article describes a US Army Special Forces unit that had cancelled plans to conduct an exercise in Utah where infiltrators would be employed to “tame an indigenous population.”
Before It’s NewsFull story here.It is one more example of federal and state governments ignoring the will of the people as well state laws. In the case of Delaware, the state’s own constitution stipulates that the office of the sheriff is a constitutionally created position just like the secretary of state and the attorney general. Delaware’s Constitution states: “The sheriffs shall be conservators of the peace within the counties . . .
County sheriff: power to protect… ” But, make no mistake, as the duly-elected sheriffs of our respective counties, we will enforce the rights guaranteed to our citizens by the Constitution. No federal official will be permitted to descend upon our constituents and take from them what the Bill of Rights – in particular Amendment II – has given them. “
By Chuck Baldwin
The local FOX affiliate in Salt Lake City, Utah, has reported that the Utah Sheriff’s Association has written a strongly worded letter to President Barack Obama regarding any potential federal laws that would restrict the citizens of the State of Utah from practicing their Second Amendment rights.
The letter was signed by every sheriff in the State of Utah except one. The letter reads in part:
“With the number of mass shootings America has endured, it is easy to demonize firearms; it is also foolish and prejudiced. Firearms are nothing more than instruments, valuable and potentially dangerous, but instruments nonetheless. Malevolent souls, like the criminals who commit mass murders, will always exploit valuable instruments in the pursuit of evil. As professional peace officers, if we understand nothing else, we understand this: lawful violence must sometimes be employed to deter and stop criminal violence. Consequently, the citizenry must continue its ability to keep and bear arms, including arms that adequately protect them from all types of illegality.”
The letter also states: “We respect the Office of the President of the United States of America. But, make no mistake, as the duly-elected sheriffs of our respective counties, we will enforce the rights guaranteed to our citizens by the Constitution. No federal official will be permitted to descend upon our constituents and take from them what the Bill of Rights – in particular Amendment II – has given them. We, like you, swore a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and we are prepared to trade our lives for the preservation of its traditional interpretation.”

Sherrifs putting their lives on the line for the Constitution
Dear Folks, The earth is moving under our feet now. We are seeing some really grass roots movements emerging, and this time by key organizations taking the leadership rather than sticking their finger into the air and waiting until it is safe to declare which side they are on.
(Gunny G: What “The Folks” Are Saying About Hillary, Etc.–See reader Responses!) ~ State Department preparing for Libya bombshell?
Susan Rice‘s abrupt withdrawal from consideration for secretary of state, coupled with suggestions from the State Department that Secretary Hillary Clinton may not testify as scheduled next week, has stirred speculation that something big is brewing in the Libya terror attack investigation.
For the better part of the last three months, an independent board has been conducting a review for the State Department of the Sept. 11 terror attack in Benghazi. In anticipation of the report’s conclusion, two congressional committees scheduled hearings for next week in which Clinton was set to testify.
Taping an episode of WTJR’s “Truth Outreach” with host Rocky Hulse, the four men forgot about the cameras.
They didn’t forget their story.
A massacre in 1857 in southwest Utah claimed the lives of some of their ancestors. What came to be called the Mountain Meadows Massacre shadows each generation, but Scott Fancher said the public knows little of “one of the single most important historical incidents” in the nation’s history.
“Apart from the Oklahoma City bombing, this was the single largest act of domestic white-on-white violence in the history of the U.S.,” he said.
Attorney General Eric Holder claimed during congressional testimony today that internal Justice Department emails that use the phrase “Fast and Furious” do not refer to the controversial gun-walking operation Fast and Furious.
Under questioning from Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who read excerpts of the emails at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Justice Department oversight, Holder claimed that the phrase “Fast and Furious” did not refer to Fast and Furious but instead referred to another gun-walking operation known as “Wide Receiver.”
Liljenquist has never voted for federal tax hikes or massive entitlement spending or multibillion-dollar bailouts or serial debt-limit increases in Washington because he has never served in Washington. Never. Hatch, by contrast, has spent the last 36 years racking up a Big Government record that cannot be whitewashed away.
Outside the Beltway/Hatch fog machine, Liljenquist’s integrity and commitment to reining in runaway spending are unassailable. In state legislative policy circles, he’s known as the “Paul Ryan of Utah” — after the courageous and wonky Wisconsin Republican congressman who’s forcing kick-the-can politicians in both parties to reckon with welfare-state profligacy.
Liljenquist doesn’t just preach fiscal discipline or embrace it during election years.
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) adopted a combative tone in a recent interview with NPR where he said that he is “doggone offended” by libertarians. He told NPR “I despise these people” and implied that he is happy to intimidate those that “dump on” him with threats of violence.

Energy: The Government Accountability Office tells Congress the Green River Formation out West contains an “amount about equal to the entire world’s proven oil reserves.” So why are we keeping it locked up on federal lands?
Exploding the Big Lie pushed by President Obama that we can’t drill our way out of high gas prices because we have but 2% of the world’s proven oil reserves, Anu Mittal, GAO director of natural resources and environment, testified before Congress last week that just one small part of the U.S. is capable of outproducing the rest of the planet.
Six-term incumbent Utah Senator Orrin Hatch (left) will face a primary opponent for the first time since he was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1976, after the Utah GOP convention narrowly failed Saturday to give him the 60 percent super-majority needed to avoid a primary. The 78-year-old Senator came up just 31 votes short of avoiding a primary, and will face former state Senator Dan Liljenquist in the primary.

Maybe you’ve heard of it and maybe you haven’t, but in Bluffdale, Utah alongside one of the largest polygamist sects in America, the NSA is building a one-million-square-foot data collection center — five times the size of the U.S. capital.
Despite immense secrecy, construction workers with Top Secret clearances, news of the project made it to the pages of Wired last month. Intelligence authority James Bamford wrote that the center is part of President Bush’s “total information awareness” program that was killed by Congress in 2003 in response to public outrage over its potential for invading Americans privacy.
One senior intelligence official formerly involved with the project told Bamford “this is more than just a data center,” it’s a code breaking megalopolis the likes of which the world has never seen.

Clarence Thomas says religious display rulings are in ‘shambles’
CNA ^ | Nov 8, 2011 | Michelle Bauman
Posted on Tuesday, November 08, 2011 4:56:51 AM by markomalley
Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas denounced his colleagues’ decision not to hear a case that would have allowed them to establish a clear standard for judging religious displays on government property.
“Today the Court rejects an opportunity to provide clarity to an Establishment Clause jurisprudence in shambles,” Thomas said in an Oct. 31 dissent.
He explained that the Supreme Court’s disjointed “jurisprudence has confounded the lower courts and rendered the constitutionality of displays of religious imagery on government property anyone’s guess.” Thomas’ dissenting opinion responded to the court’s decision to reject consideration of a prohibition on crosses placed along the roadside in Utah to commemorate fallen officers.
The case involved 12-foot-high white crosses placed by the Utah Highway Patrol Association at or near areas where officers had been killed in the line of duty.
American Atheists, Inc. sued Utah officials, claiming that the 13 crosses violated the establishment clause because they bore the symbol of the Utah Highway Patrol and many of them were located on state property.

Young boy trapped by car freed by officers and bystanders who lifted vehicle
The incident happened around 8 a.m. at the Verde Elementary School after the 6-year-old tripped and fell and became pinned beneath the approaching car.
In the video, Officers Mike Daly, Bruce Sonnenblick and Ernie Bucinskas are seen lifting the car with the help of two bystanders so the boy can be pulled to safety.
The child was taken to Delray Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

“Look, I think the tea party people deserve a lot of credit,” he said in response to a question about Democrats and Vice President Joe Biden reportedly calling freshman GOP members of Congress terrorists.
“We wouldn’t be where we are without them. The fact of the matter is I’ve been a tea party person I think since before the tea party came into existence. I was one of the earliest supporters of Reagan. And all I can say is that, you know, it’s nice to throw that kind of language around, but the tea party people have helped bring about a change where they’re not going to increase taxes on this particular approach, and, yeah, the new joint committee could increase taxes, but I don’t believe that any Republican on there is going to want to increase taxes.”

Utah Park Ranger Steven Powers marked the 4th of July by pulling a woman over for driving too slowly, then yanking her out of her car and slapping on cuffs when the woman insisted on filming the stop with her phone. Unfortunately for Powers, that woman happened to be Celia Sullivan, “a longtime Photography is Not a Crime reader,” according to the site’s proprietor, Carlos Miller.
Sullivan is also 50 years old, a mother of two, and about as non-threatening a person as any cop could hope to interact with while miles away from backup. While Powers apparently thought Sullivan was driving under the influence, she was actually driving so slowly because she had lost her camera tripod on the side of the road.
Courtesy of Miller, here’s the gist of the incident as Sullivan described it on her Facebook page:
I told PRSP (Park Ranger Steven Powers) that I was going to record him and said just a minute, let me grab my phone. PRSP decided that he didn’t have to be patient with me (like a good cop would), which is when he opened the door to my vehicle without my permission. I remember telling him just a second, I’m grabbing the documents and I grabbed my wallet too. I WAS NOT SCARED AT ALL. I was irritated but had no problem getting out of the vehicle but I was going to protect myself just in case. I had nothing to fear if he was good cop, and the video WOULD protect me if he was a bad cop.
And I remember telling him the video was for MY PROTECTION. I didn’t know what kind of person PRSP was, and he had a taser AND a gun.
I was all alone. Don’t forget that.
PRSP didn’t like the fact I was getting ready to record things because he grabbed my left wrist in an attempt to get me to drop the phone. I then said I can get out the car by myself, and turned and placed my feet on the ground and stood. This is where I complied with BOTH of his direct orders: I was out of the car, and I had my papers with me.
But he didn’t give me a chance to do anything else since he still had a hold of my wrist. With one motion, he twisted my left arm around to my back, and then at the same time saying you are under arrest for disobeying a direct order. I sank to my knees, dropped my papers phone and wallet and said over and over again you’ve got to be kidding, you’ve got to be kidding, are you kidding me.
Miller says that Sullivan was charged with “disobeying a lawful order” and “resisting arrest,” and was kept in handcuffs for 90 minutes before being released. To paraphrase Radley Balko, (not) another isolated incident.
And from Reason.tv, “The Government’s War on Cameras.”
I have to get this off my chest. Many of my readers seem to be under the false impression that I am a Republican pundit conservative. I’m really sick of that. I have absolutely no respect for either the GOP or the DNC. The only political party I can relate to in any way is the Libertarian party, but I don’t agree with them on every point either. I have a simple rule that works for me: I severely distrust all politicians all the time… always, every single one.
For those who wish to put me in a political right wing corner, who ask me to speak at political functions, who want me to join the tea party movement — stop. You really don’t know me. I’m not who you think I am. So, let me update you on a few things.

Federal Judge Blocks Utah Immigration Law A federal judge blocks a Utah law that would allow police to check the citizenship status of people they arrest. He cited its similarity to an Arizona immigration law now before federal courts.
May 11, 2011 SALT LAKE CITY —
A federal judge on Tuesday blocked a new immigration law in Utah that would have allowed police to check the citizenship status of anyone they arrest. Judge Clark Waddoups issued his ruling in Salt Lake City hours after the law went into effect, citing its similarity to an Arizona law now before federal courts.
T he American Civil Liberties Union and National Immigration Law Center had sued to stop the law, warning that its implementation could lead to racial profiling. Utah Assistant Atty. Gen. Jerrold Jensen said the ruling was “not a surprise.”
Jensen said after the hearing that the law was “fully constitutional” and that his office planned to “argue it vigorously.”
The next hearing on the matter is set for July 14.

Hatch’s website ‘fiasco’ — simply updating old site (RINO pushed bill for a foreign-born president)
Deseret News ^ | 2011-05-03 | Jamshid Ghazi Askar

Several national publications recently speculated that Sen. Orrin Hatch was purposely deleting pages from his official website in an attempt to preserve his conservative bona fides. Hatch’s office, however, squashed the rumors by thoroughly clarifying that the elimination of certain web pages was an “internal decision” related to the launch of “a brand new website.”
Here’s a timeline of what transpired: Darren Elliot wrote a piece for Salon on Thursday revisiting the Presidential Eligibility Amendment, a 2003 bill introduced by Hatch that would allow foreign-born American citizens to run for president — a stance which at the time was primarily aimed clearing the path for the political ascendancy of Arnold Schwarzenegger but that today would almost certainly be anathema to “birthers” and a majority of tea partiers.
The very next day Elliot followed up with another article, this time stating: “Less than 24 hours after the (Thursday) piece went up, a tech blogger discovered that the section of Hatch’s website that mentioned the ‘Presidential Eligibility Amendment’ had mysteriously disappeared.”

Americans May Come to the Capitol ‘With Pitchforks and Torches,’ Senator Warns
CNSNews ^ | May 4, 2011 | Susan Jones
Posted on Wednesday, May 04, 2011 12:33:49 PM by jazusamo
(CNSNews.com) – As the Obama administration demands another increase in the U.S. debt limit, Americans taxpayers are demanding spending restraint, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) told the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday.
He said Congress must attach fiscal reforms to legislation increasing the debt ceiling. Hatch also warned his fellow lawmakers what could happen if the fiscal reforms, once enacted, “fall prey to gimmicks, are waived or otherwise undermined.”
“My sense is that the people will come to this Capitol with pitchforks and torches they will be so upset. And they’d be right to do so,” Hatch said.
History shows that fiscal reforms can leave people feeling betrayed and disappointed, when Congress inevitably goes back to its big-spending ways, Hatch said.
After participating in the pursuit of famed bandit Pancho Villa in the early 20th century, the Browning M1911 automatic pistol is again making history—becoming the first-ever official firearm of a U.S. state.
In deciding to establish a state firearm, Utah lawmakers settled on the M1911 pistol because its creator, legendary gun maker John Browning, was born and lived a large part of his life in the state. Browning also founded his company in Utah.
Utopia? Hardly “The Republic of Texas, which won its independence from Mexico in 1836 — remember the Alamo? — spent perhaps 10 years as an independent nation. “
And what to make of Texas. The USA backed Texas in its drive for independence from Mexico. The Republic of Texas, which won its independence from Mexico in 1836 — remember the Alamo? — spent perhaps 10 years as an independent nation. It was then annexed by the USA on December 29, 1845.
The annexation, by the way, led to a war — the Mexican War. California, Nevada, and Utah, as well as parts of Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and Wyoming were taken from Mexico by the USA.Sixteen years after the independent nation of Texas had been annexed by the USA — in 1861 — the USA refused to let Texas leave the USA.
Sorry. There is a piece of paper, known as the Constitution, which means that although areas like Texas may declare their independence of nations such as Mexico — with the backing of the USA — an area like Texas may never declare its independence from the USA.
We have different rules, and we don’t allow that.You signed away your independence permanently, and if you care to disagree, we will kill you.
Forget the Supreme Court. As President Ulysses S. Grant proclaimed, the highest tribunal available to mankind is the force of arms.
And so Texas — which, the Northern myth proclaims, had never left the union via the heresy of “secession” — was forced to ratify the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments in order to be “re-admitted” to a Union that it supposedly had never really left………………………………..
“The shocking shooting of an Arizona congresswoman last month has not damaged the western state’s love affair with guns,” monstersandcritics.com reports.
“The rampage at a shopping mall left six people dead and 14 injured. But lawmakers are not about to tighten the state’s famously lax gun laws. Rather they plan to bolster the status of firearms by naming the Colt revolver as the official state gun.
On Wednesday a key legislative body approved a bill to make the Colt the official state firearm in recognition of the gun’s role in helping settle the desert territory in the late 19th century.” Ha! it gets better . . .‘I think Arizona has a tradition of being a Wild West state,’ said Republican Senator Ron Gould, one of 42 co-sponsors of the bill.
‘The Colt single action Army revolver epitomizes the Wild West heritage of Arizona.’
The bill designating the Colt revolver Arizona’s official firearm passed out of the Arizona State Senate appropriations committee on Wednesday by a vote of 9-4. More than 40 Sate legislators have signed onto the resulting bill. The Phoenix New Times is not amused:”The bill will be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee today.
It’s sponsored by all the usual suspects — Russell Pearce, Judy Burgess, and the rest of the crazies in the Legislature that seem to be hell-bent on making living in Arizona the punchline to a joke. See all their names here.”Truth be told, there is macabre humor to be had from the tragedy in Tucson.
While anyone with a shred of humanity views the spree killing as a horrific crime, the resulting vilification of the weapon used is exactly the kind of boneheaded bombast that makes gun control advocates figures of fun amongst the firearms community. Hence the new term “happy sticks” for extended magazines and this vinyl wall decal from easydecals.com. As the Brits would say, “you gotta laff, mate.”
“Atlantis Anomaly” Causes Shutdown Of US Army Weapons Base…United States Army’s main weapons base Dugway Proving Ground…

A Russian Space Forces (VKS) report circulating in the Kremlin today says that one of their Kosmos-2469 satellites currently in orbit over North America has detected a gamma ray burst of “unprecedented proportions” emanating from the United States Army’s main weapons base Dugway Proving Ground located in their State of Utah.
According to this report, since the formation of what is described as a “magnetic vortex” began appearing in the Gulf of Aden (see our December 1, 2010 report Mysterious ‘Vortex’ Warned Is Creating Global Weather Catastrophe) a growing number of gamma ray bursts emanating from beneath our Earth and its seas, and directed towards the Sirius star system [Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky], have been detected and have given rise to the belief of many Russian scientists that they belong to an ancient “early warning system” of some type.
One of the largest of these gamma ray bursts was detected coming from the seas off the Florida coast in an area long believed to have once been a part of the Lost Continent of Atlantis described by the classical Greek philosopher and mathematician Plato (428-347BC) as being a naval power lying “in front of the Pillars of Hercules” that conquered many parts of Western Europe and Africa 9,000 years before the time of Solon, or approximately 9600 BC…
The Mountain Meadows Massacre By Richard E. Turley Jr.Managing Director, Family and Church History Department Richard E. Turley Jr., “The Mountain Meadows Massacre,” Ensign, Sep 2007, 14–21This month marks the 150th anniversary of a terrible episode in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. On September 11, 1857, some 50 to 60 local militiamen in southern Utah, aided by American Indian allies, massacred about 120 emigrants who were traveling by wagon to California. The horrific crime, which spared only 17 children age six and under, occurred in a highland valley called the Mountain Meadows, roughly 35 miles…

The Visions of Joe Brandt in 1937 California to Vanish (Plus Colorado, Nevada, Utah, Arizona & Japan)
The Visions of Joe Brandt in 1937
Reprinted from: Living Water, Vol 1X, Number 2, April-May-June Issue 1969.
The man who wrote this was a personal friend of the publisher at the time. The article is given as he wrote it in 1937, in boyish handwriting. He had fallen from a horse at age 17 and for days he had a concussion. During this period of time a continuing dream came night after night. It was as though he was viewing a tremendous earthquake and inundation in California and other parts of the world. Joe Brandt had also written in a drowsy state through his days while recuperating in the hospital about positions of various faults, strata of rock, earth movements,-so much material that a geologist of many years would scarcely attempt such a work. The boy knew nothing of geology or the possibility of a coming earthquake. There are five-points to note which lift this dream/vision out of the realm of ordinary night-time dreaming, and the huge sheaf of geology data out of ordinary day-time writings, as follows:
Eric HolderU.S. Attorney GeneralThe United States of America General, As a citizen of this country I’m writing to you to correct some gross violations within the department that you supposedly oversea.
I’m doing this openly in order to share my observations with the public that has grown weary of the policies of this administration, and the previous one, regarding the massive security arrangements of the US that have become intolerable to live with.
Your Department today oversees the world largest security and torture apparatus since the Inquisition: Yet in fact the US Department of Justice long ago exceeded everything that was done during the active life of the Inquisition 1478-1968 to an unimaginable degree. Currently the United States has over 500 secret prisons scattered all over the planet-these are places where you send hundreds of thousands of people to be routinely tortured, sometimes maimed and often killed-and all of it was designed to be kept ultra-secret, from the public that is paying for all of it.
This has set the tone for the US Department of Justice inside the USA. The most pressing concern is with the personnel that administer your prisons both here and abroad: In particular there is a lack of…
Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz is speaking out against vans that carry scanning technology inside them that allows people to see through the walls of cars, trucks, and even into homes.“These vans essentially can look through the walls of your home, look through the walls of a vehicle or a container and they can tell what’s inside.
They can see through people’s clothes and give you some great detail about people’s bodies, much like they do at the airport. That’s pretty scary,” Chaffetz tells KSL Newsradio.ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW
