Preserving Government’s Capacity to Spy on Americans

Last week, the Huffington Post reported in “Loretta Lynch: ‘I Am Very Concerned’ For Americans If A Key Section Of The Patriot Act Expires,” that:

 

“Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed the USA Freedom Act, which would reform aspects of the Patriot Act and put an end to the government’s bulk collection of phone records.

Section 215 [of the Patriot Act] has been the legal basis for the intelligence community’s bulk metadata collection.

“U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said she’s ‘very concerned‘ about what could happen if section 215 of the Patriot Act, set to expire June 1, is not reauthorized by Congress.

“My biggest fear is that we will lose important eyes on people who have made it clear that their mission is to harm American people here and abroad,” Lynch said in an interview with CBS.

 

By “people who have made it clear that their mission is to harm the American people,” does Mz. Lynch mean only foreign terrorists, or does she also include the federal government–which is certainly bound to “harm the American people” by depriving us of our rights and liberties?

Emergency Powers


James Turk interviews Lawrence Parks on the subject of “emergency powers”.

Note that, in my opinion, the President’s “emergency powers” only apply within the districts and territories “of the United States”.  They do not apply within the borders of the States of the Union (“The United States of America”).  If my opinion is roughly correct, it implies that your exposure to the President’s “emergency powers” may depend on whether you consent to assent to government’s presumption that you are “in” a territorial state (“this state”) of the singular “United States“.

In theory, if you can establish that 1) you’re a man made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-28); 2) you’re “endowed by your Creator with certain unalienable Rights” (“Declaration of Independence”); 3) are one of the people of a State of the Union (like “The State of Texas”); who 4) is living and working within a State of the Union (a State of “The United States of America“); which 5) is not a “state of emergency”; and who is 6) entitled to “separation of powers”; and 7) therefore does not consent to be subject to administrative law or administrative process; then, 8) you might not be subject to President Obama’s “emergency powers”.

Kent Hovind’s Spiritual War

Creationism: “Endowed by his Creator”

Back in the 1990s, I published a magazine called the AntiShyster.  That publication focused mainly on criticizing lawyers and the judicial system, but I also touched on issues of religion.  I’d also sometimes touch on extraneous subjects that simply impressed me as interesting and important.

One of those subjects was Kent Hovind’s arguments in favor of Creationism–the idea that man really was created by God in the way described in Genesis.  According to Hovind, man is not the result of evolution.

At the time, I was in my 40s and regarded myself as semi-educated and reasonably intelligent.  Therefore, I knew that the Theory of Evolution was rational, scientific and undeniable. I wasn’t a “holy roller,” and I dismissed Creationism as a myth unworthy of consideration.

And then I read one of Kent Hovind’s articles that both advocated Creationism and also pointed out great logical flaws in the Theory of Evolution.  I was amazed. I no longer regarded Evolution as rational, scientific and undeniable.  I could see that while “evolution” meant “change” and offered a very logical theory as to how animal “A” changed/evolved into animal “B” which, in turn, changed/evolved into animal “C”–the theory of evolution cannot explain how animal “A” was created and came to be in the first place.

Going Postal: Gov-co Stocks up on Ammo

“Going postal” just took on a whole new meaning.  Apparently, Postal Employees are no longer content to shoot each other and are therefore preparing to shoot the public.

We know this because the USPS has joined the list of federal agencies that are stockpiling ammunition and firearms.

For example, the Social Security Administration put in a request for 174,000 rounds of .357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow-point bullets.  Do they fear that the retirees are about to grab their walkers and storm the SSA buildings?

The Department of Agriculture requested 320,000 rounds.   Do they fear farmers and ranchers—or an attack by cows and pigs?

The Department of Homeland Security has requested 450 million rounds.  That’s enough bullets to shoot every American about 1.5 times.

The FBI has sought 100 million hollow-point rounds.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also requested 46,000 rounds.  Why does a weather service need ammunition?

To date, over two billion rounds of ammunition have been purchased or ordered by a variety of domestic federal agencies.

President Obama–Stop “Helping” Us!


[courtesy Google Images]

A recent article in The New York Times (“Obama Will Seek Broad Expansion of Overtime Pay”) reports that,

 “President Obama this week will seek to force American businesses to pay more overtime to millions of workers, the latest move by his administration to confront corporations that have had soaring profits even as wages have stagnated.

“On Thursday, the president will direct the Labor Department to revamp its regulations to require overtime pay for several million additional fast-food managers, loan officers, computer technicians and others whom many businesses currently classify as “executive or professional” employees to avoid paying them overtime, according to White House officials briefed on the announcement.”

The rationale for this increase is probably the belief that if people’s incomes rise, they spend more and theoretically stimulate the economy.

But, on the other hand, if corporate labor costs rise, either corporate profits fall and/or prices go up.  If prices rise, the economy tends to slow.

So what will happen?  By raising some employee’s incomes, will we stimulate or slow the economy?

Answer:  That’s the wrong question.

The Moral Foundation for Governance

The Washington Times reports in “The Putin problem: U.S. needs Russian rockets for spy satellites” that, last Thursday (March 13th, A.D. 2014) ,

 

“Secretary of State John F. Kerry said a “a very serious series of steps” would occur if the Crimean Peninsula, currently occupied by Russian military hardware and thousands of troops, votes to rejoin Russia. He did not get into specifics as to what those steps might be, only saying to a Senate Appropriations Committee panel that there would be ‘a response of some kind’.”

What’s “a very serious series of steps”?

It’s the boogaloo followed by the funky chicken followed by the lindy hop.   It’s never before been attempted on live TV but will be seen next week when President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry team up to make a surprise appearance on Dancing With The Stars.

In fact, a “very serious series of steps” may occur on Dancing With The Stars, but our government will take no meaningful steps to punish Russia for annexing the Crimea.
