IRS and Feds engaging in more prosecutorial criminality

March 8, 2015

Here’s another case of federal and IRS prosecutorial criminality.

He’s a creationist who is well-known among Christians who are interested in the topic. He was, in the opinion of m many, the most effective creationist speaker. His invitations to speak were many, he had years scheduled in advance. They sold the videos in DVDs but made clear that permission was granted to copy them, as long as they were given away, and they were download-able on the Internet.

The IRS put him away for 10 years claiming “structuring”. Structuring is when somebody follows the law but somebody at the IRS decides you’re trying to avoid the reporting requirements. They got the structuring laws passed by claiming it was a “tool” to go after drug traffickers.

There were other bogus charges and then the first thing the judge did after a request from prosecution was to ban the defense strategy. There were all kinds of things they also threw at him.

He had been denounced by a jealous Christian school director in the same town of Pensacola.

I just discovered that as the end of his sentence draws near, they have created more bogus charges to keep him in prison. The judge presiding –note this!– has banned all taking of notes, and has banned everyone from having a Bible open in the courtroom. I am not making this up.

Left-fascists riot in Honduras Congress, democracy, and individual freedom

February 1, 2014

Herein read my reaction to comments in La Gringa’s “blogicito”, found at the following link:

http://tinyurl.com/m7wyh7m

This episode of changing rules in Honduras just shows the general peril of ANY government. Democracy is NOT any “better” than any other form of government. Power corrupts. Taxation is extortion by definition, no matter how many of the majority vote for it. Follow the law or go to jail. By the way, though, I read various articles on the proceedings, and they are not the end of the democracy as depicted, so much as a lot of noise and riot by a party founded by people who in power did much worse, of course.

The United States’ long history is the best attempt maybe along those lines, and look where it is now. The “strong media” of the 19th century is now a sycophantic mouthpiece for more control over every piece of your life by government. The best example of this is their treatment of the champion of individual freedom in the United States in his presidential campaign, Ron Paul.

But college kids loved him. He was different, and showed character by shutting down lobbyists, like Larry Abrammoff said in a Q&A on CSpan once, he was one that you could not get anything from him with offers of money. Otherwise, he said they’re more or less all for sale.

Centralization of power in the United States began with the Constitution, had a false start with Alexander Hamilton’s central bank baby, which Andrew Jackson killed off, got a second wind with Abraham Lincoln, and then accelerated after the Federal Reserve Bank was created and populated with the bankers they were supposedly going to regulate for the people’s interest, and it was created after a campaign that pretended it was to stop their abuses. The Income Tax was another abuse enacted the same year. It’s an abuse because I don’t have the right to tell you how much you get to keep of the fruits of your labor and how much you have to pay me for “protection”. Even if you vote for me. Theft is theft. Or call it extortion if you must, because it depends also on how “stable” such thieves are in office.

At least by a vote they have to got through pretense.

Allende was voted a plurality in Chile, and when he began ruling as an economic and political tyrant, the Congress had no constitutional remedy, so they passed a resolution DEMANDING that the military stop him. Allende did not yield to diplomatic pressure, either, and a lot of that saw the (again) sycophantic controlled “strong” media cheering Allende for cutting down Anaconda copper.

The media (outside Honduras) did not report the abused Allende perpetrated any more than they did Zelaya’s. But in 2009 we already had the Internet. So the only mainstream reporting during both abusive regimes was condemnatory of the moves against leftist-fascism.

Think not; more centralized control is their game plan. At least that’s what they do. Some as zombies, true, but nonetheless.

That’s why hope for Honduras, in my opinion, has two grounds for optimism.

ONE, the fact that one of the poorest country in Latin America, and that was already saturated by violent gangs and the same demagaguery as Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador, and even Argentina and Brazil, nonetheless pushed back against the tyranny.

TWO, they worked quickly to find a way to bring Honduras out of the vicious poverty swamp. They scoured the world and brought people from Chile to share how they became the first Latin American developed country. They investigated the examples of South Korea (contrast with North Korea) and Hong Kong and China’s special economic zones (that copy the HK model), Singapore, that became prosperous while their neighbors sank in the mire.

The politics is noisy in Honduras right now, and the dirty laundry is now public, but it was always thus. It’s just that after 2009, they have to stay clean, at least until the sons of the Chavez-Zelaya-Castro marriage grab a majority or plurality.

It was always much WORSE in fact. I have certain knowledge that many of the Congress years past were into the kinds of business that would make Al Capone blush. And that includes some of those now demanding “democracy” from the controlling coalition.

Fighting over the spoils of conquest is what this is, and people must push back against any government having any power at all to loot anybody.

Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the  blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised…

Matthew 17:24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute?

25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?

26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.

Jailed Qwest CEO had refused NSA requests

June 15, 2013

QWEST, NSA, AND INSIDER TRADING?

The Story Of Joseph Nacchio And The NSA – Business Insider:
http://www.businessinsider.com/the-story-of-joseph-nacchio-and-the-nsa-2013-6

Former Qwest CEO Joseph Nacchio is currently serving a six-year sentence after being convicted of insider trading in April 2007 for selling $52 million of stock in the spring of 2001 as the telecommunications carrier appeared to be deteriorating.

During the trial his defense team argued that Nacchio, 63, believed Qwest was about to win secret government contracts that would keep it in the black.

Nacchio alleged that the government stopped offering the company lucrative contracts after Qwest refused to cooperate with a National Security Agency surveillance program in February 2001.

So it’s in the news because of the very public revelations by Edward Snowden in the Guardian. But wait a minute. Is this a “new” story? Guess not. Only “conspiracy theorists” made a big deal of it before, including long before Leslie Cauley’s USA Today story:

Back in 2006 Leslie Cauley of USA Today, citing multiple people with direct knowledge of the arrangement, reported that shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks America’s three largest telecoms signed contracts to provide the NSA with detailed call records from hundreds of millions of people across the country.

Cauley noted that Qwest’s refusal to participate “left the NSA with a hole in its database” since the company served local phone service to 14 million customers in 14 states.

From USA Today (emphasis ours):

The NSA, which needed Qwest’s participation to completely cover the country, pushed back hard. …

the agency suggested that Qwest’s foot-dragging might affect its ability to get future classified work with the government.

Nacchio’s legal concerns about the NSA program at the time mirror those of civil liberty groups today.

Cauley, citing sources familiar with events, reported the NSA asserted that Qwest didn’t need a court order — or approval under Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (which oversees NSA snooping) — to provide the data.

“They told (Qwest) they didn’t want to [run the proposal by the FISA court] because FISA might not agree with them,” one NSA insider told USA Today.

There is a record of the NSA running afoul of FISA: In July the FISA court ruled that the NSA violated the Fourth Amendment’s restriction against unreasonable searches and seizures “on at least one occasion.”

Her sources told Cauley, the author of the USA Today story, that the NSA had said other agencies like FBI, CIA, and the DEA might have access to all that massive database.

Hey, People! What else is true that those crazy tin-foil-hat conspiracy theorists have been telling us?

And looky here, even on CSPAN, we see appearances by NSA spokesmouths doing talks on what this program does and why, and no, there are strict rules on what we look at, we stay inside guidelines.

But do you know why they’re not even denying one thing that Snowden said, that he could have looked at anybody’s records, even the President’s? Because they know that anybody can see that this is obviously and clearly a violation of the Fourth Amendment.

Here’s the Fourth:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Okay, now read it with the emphasis where it goes. It’s a right to BE secure in you “persons, houses, papers, and effects”. It is NOT a right to FEEL secure, or a right to be secure “if you have nothing to hide”. Remember, this is an amendment that recognizes the natural right of persons to such security. Having thousands of government agents able to spy on anybody at any time is NOT being secure from “searches”.

The amendment does not make an exception for future technology! It is a LIE that it does not. The word “effects” easily extends the spirit of the natural right recognized in this amendment (recognized, not created) to electronic communications between people. The moronic argument that one sends all those private emails into the ether as if they meant it for broadcast to anybody who wants it is stupid.

If any telecommunications company asked for your permission to share all your comings and goings with any third party that wanted it, you/we would say No, of course.

One more point about the Fourth Amendment. The significant word there for the purposes of Orwellian Big Brother Mass Search of data is “persons”. This is a plural of the word “person”, and when a warrant “particular describes” the “persons or things” we would expect those “persons” to be indentified individually.

Like the freedom of speech, of religion, and the freedom of press, and the Fifth, this speaks to the rights of us as individual “persons”, NOT to our rights as groups. It might be “reasonable” to law enforcement to go house to house searching inside for a couple of bombers on the run, but it is not “reasonable” to each and every place they might feel like searching.

For example, take any one house in Watertown, it was not “reasonable” that a particular John Doe had Suspect #2 in hiding in his residence. Nobody was “secure” in their houses or persons that day. Contrary to some government-media spokesmouths’ mutterings, who said it was a “voluntary” lockdown, the evidence is to the contrary.

WOLF BLITZER’S EPISODE OF FOOT-IN-MOUTH DISEASE

Wolf Blitzer stuck his entire foot in his mouth to try to get a whack in at Rand Paul. Never mind the video on youtube that shows Boston’s finest knocking aggressively on doors and literally ordering the occupants outside, so they could go in and search the house.

The Dunkin Donuts operators of those news feeds did not come in, and the policemen wanting their coffee and donuts had to call them and tell them they could come open the store for them.

There is also the story of the policeman that went to fetch milk for a mother’s baby because the mother thought she could not leave the house.

And then Blitzer of course left out of his embarrassing presentation the point Rand Paul raised that it only took FIFTEEN MINUTES after the “lockdown” was raised for a regular citizen to find the bad guy. Could have saved millions of bucks and let people do productive work.

CONGRESS IS CULPABLE FOR THIS BIG-BROTHER-GATE

Let us remember that some of us warned about this when Congress enacted into law a proviso that  exempted all telecommunications companies from any civil or criminal damages resulting from the release of data to government. That was some years ago and it is obscured in the results from search engines.

Here is some relevant data from the Electronic Freedom Foundation:
https://www.eff.org/pages/calea-faq#3

But then with the Patriot Act, the ones ordered to serve up data are ordered to keep it secret. How do we know that the NSA spokesmen are telling us the truth? Are NSA agents, employees and contractors under orders to keep other details secret, like maybe the collection of CONTENT we know they survey as well?

They are now saying this dragnet of all the records of calls and emails only involves the header information. Baloney, because that leads them to where they get all the content they want.

Whistleblowers have already released to the “wild” that they record all the calls in a loop and listen for certain keywords and when those keywords happen, a recording kicks the call content to an analyst. Posted here at Business Insider’s web site is a list of keywords from years back:
http://www.businessinsider.com/nsa-prism-keywords-for-domestic-spying-2013-6

Okay, some people like (Old Guard Establishment Republican) Senator Lindsey Graham, is saying that he has no problem with this universal Big Brother surveillance of everybody because he has “nothing to hide”. Now from the people come calls for Lindsey Graham to give us his passwords so we can check to see whether he has nothing to hide.

WHO HAS SOMETHING TO HIDE?

Well, now we see the biggest coverup of these times of the biggest lawbreakers of our time and for a long time, and that is the NSA itself.

If spying on all of us Americans, and residents and tourists inside the USA, was so harmless, then why did they act like it was something to hide?

Why are they still hiding from any conversation that points out the whistleblower’s exposure to the fact that so many government agents have access to any telephone conversation they wish to listen to? Why are they avoiding the fact, now made public, that they can pull up any email they wish to look at?

Why are they trying to change the subject and shoot the messenger?

Now we know. The NSA gets ALL the header information for whatever they want, and acts like there is no Fourth Amendment when they want to listen to YOUR phone call or look at YOUR email, whoever you are.

Maybe Lindsey Graham says he has nothing to hide precisely because he does have something to hide and somebody at Fort Meade knows about it?

Why are none of these smarter-than-thou clever “reporters” asking questions like that?

There is something rotten not in Denmark but in the USA. Well, probably Denmark too.

Whistleblowers tell – Wiretapping one Watergate office, now wiretapping everybody!

June 13, 2013
NSA Spy Center

What if the Republicans or Democrats had called for prosecution against Deep Throat? What if the CIA had brought charges? Nixon had an enemies’ list, what if that were a kill list?

 

What if he had wiretapped not only the Democrats but the Republicans too, and not only political operators but their families, their friends, their acquaintances, and spies, and criminals, and cops, and governors, and Supreme Court justices like Robert Brown, and not only all of those, but every single person living in the United States?

 

What if this had some connection to Justice Roberts’ sudden change of attitude on the Obamacare decision? Before you answer, remember, PRISM was still called a “conspiracy theory” just ten years ago, and even after the New York Times ran a short article on it.

 

EDITORIAL: The Whistleblower – Washington Times:
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jun/11/the-whistleblower/

 

There are a couple of paragraphs that bring out clearly the difference between Watergate and the more recent revelations:

 

(A couple of editors’ notes -mine- are in [brackets])

 

The latest revelations will have no pernicious effect [ed: on
terrorists and enemies] because our enemies assume Uncle Sam has been listening. Al Qaeda operatives use codes, dead drops and encryption to carry out attacks, such as the Boston bombings, under the nose of the mass surveillance. That’s what spies and terrorists do.

 

[The official record of events is that it took ten years to get at
Osama bin Laden, because he did not communicate using the media that
PRISM grabs.]

 

Google, Facebook and the other companies play along, denying that the government is directly tapping into their servers. This is an empty assurance, considering that these companies could never legally admit to allowing a tap. The court order authorizing blanket interception of “all call-detail records” from Verizon instructs that “no person shall disclose to any other person that the FBI or NSA has sought or obtained tangible things under this order.”

 

The next paragraph is a point that has not yet been made:

 

Such extreme secrecy isn’t about making sure that China or the Taliban never learn about U.S. surveillance capabilities, but about keeping ordinary Americans in the dark about what’s going on. The Nixon administration was brought low by the bungled bugging of the Democratic National Committee headquarters 41 years ago. Now every telephone in the country is tapped. A lot of people are unhappy about it, and we can be sure that the unelected bureaucrats in charge of these powerful surveillance tools will say whatever it takes to keep them.

A few analysts operating in secret have access to every embarrassing photograph, incriminating text message and off-color remark ever made on a telephone or over the Internet. The lesson here, so far, is that if the government won’t tell the public what’s going on, someone will. It’s not the way to run a government, but this government brought it upon itself. The Founding Fathers would never have entrusted power over such information to a handful of men. Neither should we.

The cat is out of the bag, now we all know, the American government has now admitted it, the truth is on the loose and in the wild, wild, untamed wilderness of the Internet. No wonder the president doesn’t like the New Media, Bush didn’t either of course.

 

CONSPIRACY THEORIES — WHAT ELSE ARE THEY HIDING

 

In 2012 Old Media was still denying what some of us were protesting against what we knew 20 years ago. As long ago as a six months, the ignored warnings were called “conspiracy theories”.

 

Nixon was impeached and pushed out of office for covering up the operation to wiretap the phones of the political opposition to listen in to their conversations.

 

Now, we have a case of two administrations connected with two different political parties, engaging in wiretapping everybody in the nation, not just around the world, and intercepting the communications of ALL of us.

 

EUROPE (AND RUSSIA AND CHINA) ARE NOT BLAMELESS

 

Europe is of course acting all indignant, like they would never do such a thing, but the same watchmen who warned about what the NSA is doing have also fingered the Europeans.

 

Europeans, Echelon is yours too. Western nations trade intelligence, but they also spy on each other. We know this. But this puts some meat to those bones.

 

NO WONDER THEY HATE THE INTERNET AND NEW MEDIA

 

No wonder exposed political operatives and politicians don’t like the New Media. The cyber-security flap is all about getting control, however they can. Copyright, patents, security, they’ll use anything to be able to have the Chinese-style “flip switch” that Joe Lieberman pined for, to be able to shut down the Internet with a button controlled from the White House.

 

The Chinese had a Cultural Revolution too, were upwards of 20 million were killed for thinking different, with a bunch of personal grudges thrown in, no doubt. What makes the Lieberman think he can get an Internet switch without a cultural revolution government?

The Daily Bell – Edward Snowden: Limited Hangout or a Globalist Step-Back?

June 10, 2013

 

http://www.thedailybell.com/29215/Edward-Snowden-Limited-Hangout-or-a-Globalist-Step-Back

 

These guys at The Daily Bell always offer penetrating insight into the big stories that the Old Media plays up big. More often than not, there is more to the fact that it is a story in the corporate-government-media complex than meets the eye at first glance.

 

They don’t offer these ideas as just-so, or as if they were facts. Indeed they simply say this is what it looks like to us.

 

In my opinion, their ideas generally ring true…

 

Free-Market Analysis: You read it here first over the weekend: Like Julian Assange and Occupy Wall Street, Edward Snowden is likely part of a larger dominant social theme, a manipulation created and supported by globalists who have created the world’s mega-surveillance state and now want to publicly enshrine it.

See our two articles:

Reuters: People Demand Government Action to Subdue Internet Surveillance

Was Guardian ‘SpyGate’ Article Planted to Support Pending British ‘Snooper’ Law?

The Guardian, which broke the initial story utilizing Snowden as a source, is part of the mainstream media. The mainstream media is controlled and globalist in its outlook. If those controlling the Guardian and other mainstream outlets didn’t want Snowden on the front page, he wouldn’t be there.

 

read the rest of the article here…

 

Reminds me of something from the Isaac Asimov science fiction Foundation trilogy… The Second Foundation arranges to get itself discovered and sacrifices a few of its own to make the First Foundation think that the Second Foundation is extinguished…

 

False flag operations, the military calls them. Seems as though about half of the “terrorist” hits since 2001 that the FBI stopped were FBI false flag operations in the first place.

But stop the presses. The Daily Bell itself promotes throughout its web pages the theme that the Internet Reformation is a big challenge to the powers that be that they expend considerable intellectual effort exposing. There is Ron Paul praising Edward Snowden and saying we need many more of them. Whether or not Snowden and Julian Assange are meant as the first phase of a Hegelian exercise, it still remains that it does expose the spying.

Like Ezekiel wrote in his prophetic book, if the warning is sounded and you do nothing, it’s their fault, not yours. If you don’t sound the alarm, then it’s your fault, not theirs.

These rogue actors have sounded the alarm, Ron Paul of course more effectively than most of us in the context of the current state of the world.

But there is indeed something missing. We all need more Ron Paul’s all over the world. The rest of the world is none of America‘s business, meaning meddling is neither welcome or effective as a diplomatic tool. But what is more effective is communication among private individuals, which is exactly what the Internet enables. American fans of Ron Paul and the principles of liberty and respect, and individual rights, need to become more aware of international initiatives along these lines.

And for comic relief, we have a comment from Donald Trump on Fox News Channel.

Headline: Donald Trump calls Snowden a “grandstander”.

Really? Donald Trump calling Snowden a grandstander? Hello? Get it? Really? Are you kidding me?

Some news stories deserve to be cascaded all over the Net.

It’s looking every day more and more like the dictatorship that “conspiracy theorists” warned us about. Jon Stewart is having fits. I don’t watch his program but maybe it’s because now he can’t look at some of his earlier monologues that called these theories paranoid.

Kissinger once said “You’re not paranoid if someone’s really out to get you”.

Aide involved in Benghazi talking points scrubbing promoted by Obama – Washington Times

May 26, 2013

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/may/24/obama-promotes-aide-benghazi-talking-points-scrub/

Never mind having bombed and invaded Libya with the airs of an absolute monarch, never mind Obama‘s Defense Minister telling Congressmen to their faces that the administration goes to war when it wants to and does not even have any obligation to even tell Congress about it. Never mind that the United States government under Obama took out a cooperative government that it had praised for giving up its nuclear weapons program with help from the West, and for renouncing terrorism, and for helping fight terrorism –even catching some of them for the West.

Never mind all that. None of it matters. And until recently, the usual big-government political and media cheering sections acted like even lying big-time to the American people and to Congress about what happened when blowback came home to roost in Benghazi, apparently just to win an election, did not matter. And also, they have acted like it is beneath them to ask what military commander issued the order to the Marines in Tripoli to stand down and let the Americans in Benghazi die.

Well, there is a section in the News industry that is worried about leaving Americans at risk in one of the most dangerous places for them overseas, so they could yell at Congress about budgets.

Yeah, you’ve heard about the Sequester, which is an INCREASE in budgets from the year before. That’s why they have to give you worse service when you call the IRS, that’s why they had to disrupt airline schedules, oh sure. Because they only got an INCREASE over the previous year in the money they had for these things. What government department lets even one year go by without asking for more money? More! More! More! If you don’t give us more, it will be bad! An asteroid will wipe us out! More money! they cry.

Well, who knows? “What’s the difference”?

The difference is that the one who campaigned for the presidency in 2012 with an ad featuring a call at 3:00 AM, bungled that nighttime call so badly she may have been cheated out of a 2016 presidential victory. The irony may be that her consolation prize from 2012 (the cabinet office she got) may have become a ball and chain that drags her to the bottom of the lake of political embarrassment. And that she may take the fall for the actions and inactions of her own boss. Maybe.

Anyway, Ron Paul is right. The scandal now known as Benghazi-gate is a distraction from the bigger issue of the crimes committed in waging an unconstitutional and illegal war in Libya at the expense of many lives, including Americans, of whom we now have four very famous casualties. And oh yeah, muzzles on the mouths of people who survived the actual attacks in Benghazi. And a Libyan government that the United States installed in Libya that now despises the American government because the Obama administration called him a liar in their campaign statements to the Media.

America in decline, only God can save her now, but she is not calling out to him.

Isaiah 1:18
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Race-based district maps: How are they not racial discrimination? How is the devastation of the inner city caused by their elected Democrat Party leaders, how is that not bad for citizens who just happen to have darker skin? What do miserably poor whites have to do with hurting blacks historically?

Rights are for individuals, not groups. A lynching is bad not because of somebody’s race but because the victim is a HUMAN BEING, a member of the ONLY ONE RACE, that is the HUMAN race.

Ronald Reagan was not perfect, in fact I suspect there was a very dark side to him that many “conservatives” fail to consider, but he did expose a lot that was wrong in DC, like one great truism when he said:

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’

That’s what the recent flaps in the government-media complex remind me of. All this “help” the federal government has given our darker-skinned neighbors, how’s that workin’ out for ya? Their families are much more broken up, so many fatherless children that even Bill Cosby is appalled, clergymen begging for all the killing to stop, more black-on-black crime than ever.

Now it’s fifty years after the legislation passed that requires southern states to ask the federal government (courts) for permission to make its changes to districts that change with population. Back then, the states began implementing race-based districting, for the purpose of ending racial discrimination. Read that again.

But it still doesn’t do much for the smallest minorities, I suspect, even in areas where they have enough numbers to make a difference in an area’s voting patterns.

Came across this yahoo story about a mother’s fight to get access to her late son’s Facebook page.

http://news.yahoo.com/death-facebook-photos-could-fade-away-forever-085129756–finance.html

I have some mixed feelings about it. Not so many years agone, utility companies would accommodate spouses of the people whose names were on the account. I don’t know if it held for bank accounts, but now the Internet is a new thing. Some sons and daughters and spouses don’t always want mothers or fathers or mates having access to what they do on-line, so Internet companies do have some actual basis in their opposition to opening up such data to relatives in the case of death.

So there is legal limbo where “virtual property” lives after its “virtual owners” pass on.

+===================================================+

Well, here comes another very nasty stinging surprise from the law nobody was allowed to read till they pass it:
http://thehill.com/blogs/regwatch/healthcare/285691-obama-administration-rolls-out-dreaded-healthcare-rule

If Congress had ANY integrity at all, they would require themselves to read every bill themselves before they vote on it. Better still, certify that they had read it, specifically.

Hey, how about asking them ALL to do what Justin Amash does. For every single vote he casts in Congress, he posts an explanation on-line where the public, including of course the voters in his own district, can see them. Now THAT would be a good step for the rest of them…

Some of the congressmen that voted for the unconstitutional Obamacare law are still trying to tell us that this fee is a companion to other legislation that they say will bring insurance costs down by increasing competition.

In what convoluted Alice in Wonderland world does this lack-of-logic work? In the real world, health insurance costs to businesses and people have been shooting upward with no end in sight. It’s so bad that low-wage earners in your family –if you are not a millionaire like Rep. Nancy Pelosi-D and Senator Harry Reid-D, that is– those low-wage earners are earning less because their hours have been cut to the legal part-time threshold.

How does that help poor people? Oh, they tell us, never fear, they’re going to TAKE the money from the employers of those low-wage earners in “increased revenues” (“revenues” is Doublespeak language for “taxes”, and “taxes” is Doublespeak for taking your money by force). That will show them, except the employers will have even less money left over to pay to the employee.

Thanks a lot for nothing, as the saying goes.

China says it’s “full prepared” for a currency war, after Japan’s Prime Minister said he is determined to force devaluation of the yen to boost exports.

This helps illustrate the problem with political control of currencies. Without government price-fixing, resources would get allocation to production in the way that is of most optimal value to the optimum number of people, as determined by actual demand.

A woman saved from a burglar by the hand of God, she says:
http://www.komonews.com/news/local/Seattle-woman-believes-God-saved-her-from-burglar-194299371.html

She was deep in prayer but yelled “Lord help me” after the man grabbed her hair. The man fell backward at that and hit his head on the fridge, and stumbled out disoriented and escaped in the getaway car waiting for him.

This reminded me of an incident told to me by a friend in missions who had lived in a property lent to the work in one of the worst areas of Chicago. A very, very big man once came literally crashing through the front door and began shouting and wreaking general havoc throughout this apartment.

My colleague sent his partner to call the police while he followed the troublemaker, who went room by room until he found the kitchen and stuffed a lot of the food into his mouth.

Then he turned his attention on my friend, backed him to the wall, and started choking him. My colleague shot up a silent prayer commanding God to stop this man. Whereupon the man’s head snapped back from the body as if from a blow that came out of thin air. It was a knockout blow that left him on the floor. The police and paramedics only had to put him on a stretcher and carry him out.

Then there is my own experiences. In one, a gang came to our community home in a three-story house in St. Louis, my home town, with the intention of doing us great bodily harm when their gang leader gave the signal.

Well, before they could get to the signal, the “shepherdess” had pulled out her guitar and poured out her heart to these tough guys, and they began whispered conversations in the stairway.

They told us that they had decided we were just “too sweet” and they couldn’t do anything to us. When we broke up to converse personally, some of them prayed with us to receive Jesus.

In Cincinnati, there was a gang, a very big gang, that followed our group when we began walking back home from a college campus we often went to in our “witnessing”. They threw down one of our group to the ground, when a “sister” who was underage but visited yelled out at her loudest voice, “I rebuke you in Jesus name!!” At that one of the leaders pulled the others away and yelled at them to leave us alone, because he knew us, and we were “with God”.

It turned out he had met us in another witnessing trip to a park the previous weekend.

Wow, here goes a very interesting take on the Papal resignation:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2287074/Pope-resigns-2013-Gay-sex-rings-The-Filth-corrupting-Vatican–Pope-REALLY-quit.html

The article noted that the “resignation” we are hearing about of six hundred years agone now, was not really a “resignation” but he was forced out when the cardinals decided having three popes, even if each of them had some significant claim to clerical and “secular” support, was too many. The “resignation” was a promise by the “resigning pope” so he could get to claim his place in the historical succession by convening the conclave to elect the next pope (“none of the above” three) and then officially resigning.

All of this just shows the political nature of this office. The international Roman Catholic Church controls a LOT of resources, a LOT of money, and a lot of people, and this always invites corruption.

As to the pedophile scandal rocking the church, and the reference by some lay Catholics and former priests recently who said the only one who could begin to clean house and clean up the reputation (such as is possible) was Pope Benedict himself, by taking some actions and resigning.

It reminded me of something from accounts of Martin Luther’s own trip to Rome before his “99 Theses”.

At the time priests jokingly laid claim to piety by saying they only engaged in dalliances with the opposite sex.

+===================================================+

An increasing number of people are giving up their United States citizenship because of the grievous and complicated tax rules. The United States imposes the same taxes on citizens living overseas as it does on those who stay inside the borders.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/expat/9904314/Americans-renouncing-citizenship-to-become-British-thanks-to-tax-rise.html

They make some accommodation by law for equivalent-category taxes paid to other governments, but this adds to the paperwork. It also has the effect of making some expatriates at least theoretically responsible for paying even more than they heavy levies of the America taxes.

+===================================================+

The Republicans have not been better than Democrats in respecting human rights or in the warmongering, but in general it seems like the publishing organs of the government-media complex feel obligated to make subtle tilts in favor of the Dem Party (along with the not-so-subtle) in their coverage just to make it even. The Repugnant Party has to live with a handicap to make it fair for the Dumb Party.

I thought I would just mention this one time I came across another examples, the principles in the Connecticut Congress involved in a lewd sexually suggestive joke by the deputy speaker of the state House were identified by name but not party affiliation. But comments condemning the remarks and demanding an apology by another member of their House was quoted with his party affiliation identified.
http://www.ctpost.com/local/article/Politician-stripped-of-title-after-lewd-snake-4317889.php

The flap also shows how much today’s political environment is increasingly sensitive to the smallest slights. Harassment used to involve actual damage. Damage caused by words (where fraud is not involved) was not cause enough to destroy a person’s life or career. And especially when only ignorance or illiteracy was the real cause of the emotional “damage”, like when the use of the word “niggardly” was taken as a racial insult instead of what it really meant.

+===================================================+

The comments can sometimes be more interesting than the articles, like this next one about an Obama pardon for a man convicted of “violating the state’s gun law”:
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/mar/1/middle-gun-control-push-obama-pardons-man-weapon-c/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS

The article does not state what the actual infraction consisted of, which would be helpful, but it still is a strange quirk in the middle of Obama’s promise to crack down hard on gun law violators and those who sell them to criminals. Presumably his definition of criminals would include those who possess guns he disapproves of. That would no doubt include all guns, since one of the things he’s pushing is a “universal background check”, and that would set up the first steps involved in the engineering of a one-stop place to make sure you are legal.

A lot of states already have big databases listing gun owners and their names and addresses. A way to access them all converts it to a national registry database.

+===================================================+

Not all aborticide “doctors” are this dirty in their clinics, but when state authorities raided his “Womens’ Society” abortion clinic expected to find a mere “pill mill”, the shocked officials immediately ordered this filthy abortuary shut down.

Now, the villain is preparing for trial for his heartless murder of eight newborn children who refused to die inside the womb and instead came out breathing. He is also charged with the murder (“manslaughter”) for the two mothers that died on the abortion table from the medical incompetence.

It shocked the state into realizing that hey, maybe abortion “clinics” are not automatically safe.

Many of us already knew it was a killing field for legalized infanticide.

Mothers:

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.– Isaiah 55:7

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.-Isaiah 1:18

+===================================================+

A shocking surprise awaits in the future for confused Christian Zionists:
http://www.wnd.com/2013/03/experts-reveal-how-israel-fits-into-todays-news/

They start off by lifting up talks by people who want to combat “the new anti-Semitism”, by which they mean anybody who questions anything the secular officially Jewish Israeli state does. Being officially Jewish, they are thereby officially anti-Christ, and thereby officially anti-God. And when they say, like the false prophets of Jeremiah’s time and like the Pharisees of Jesus’ day, that they “answer only to God”, they are following false prophets.

They hinge this thing on the promise to Abraham that God will bless those that bless his people and curse those that “curse thee”.

But God made clear even to Abraham that his descendants (according to the flesh) would fail and that God would have to cast them off. Here’s the verses they hang on:

And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.–Genesis 22:18
And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;-Genesis 26:4

In the above-linked article, the writer also goes on to mention the “harbingers” of judgement as warnings against ancient Israel, as applied to the America of today.

My question is, why are they not applying those same harbingers to the modern state of Israel. And how can a wicked nation bless Israel, whether Israel of today is good or evil, or due for its own judgment?

As someone who believes in the Golden Rule as expressed by Jesus Christ himself, I totally oppose the abuses that many generations of Jews have received in the past. Dennis Prager points out that the systematic and worst abuses have never occurred in the USA like in Europe and elsewhere, but there have been slights. I pray that if Jews were ever being hunted down for being Jews that God would give me the grace to hide them.

I think they should have the same rights and treated equally as anyone. They have no special claim over mine or yours to Abrahamic promises. Same as everyone else, they demand equal treatment before God by refusing to recognize the claim that the Lord of the Manor has over them through his own son that he sent.

Let us see what God actually promised to the usurpers of the claim of the Lord over the manor, the usurpers that he had trusted with taking care of the manor. Note that the Pharisees had no problem at all perceiving that this parable was about them. It seems they may have had more spiritual discernment than today’s major so-called Christian leaders:

Matthew 21: 33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:

34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.

36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.

38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.

39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.

40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.

God the Father told them in the Tanukh, and Jesus told them as quoted in the Gospels, that the kingdom of God would be taken from them and given to “a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof”.

Is the political nation of Israel of today “bringing forth the fruits thereof”?

By the way, is the Roman Catholic hierarchy “bringing forth the fruits thereof”?

Russia, the Bolsheviks, Western financing

Re-posted from a discussion elsewhere:

German and the Russian Bolshevik insistence on quitting the war was a good cover during WWII for German capitalists supporting the purported sworn enemies of capitalists inside Russia. Just like “democracy” is a believable cover for Obama’s support for the “Arab Spring” that it turns out is actually the “Arab Winter”. (Note that nobody in the Media, Fox News included is admitting an editorial mistake on that one). But hundreds of thousands, probably millions, have strong trouble believing the cover story anymore, and most of those know how to add, no matter that all the government-media complex is pretending skeptics don’t exist.

But then there’s another twist to that. The Czar was already deposed when Lenin and Trotsky went in. The big Western banks and financial interests had starved the Russians for war financing, and all the Russian institutions were feeling that. The new Kerensky government needed the financing from the West, with the Bolsheviks and the war making havoc of their economy. They begged the West to let them quit the war and keep the financing because Russian domestic opposition was putting their government in danger.

The Western bankers and financiers said, No way Jose, you quit the war you quit the financing. (Unspoken subtext: We don’t care if the Bolsheviks take over, in fact our pals the Kaisers are sending Trotsky with gold to finance them). Remember this was also just a few scant years after the same bankers hoodwinked the United States to enact both the income tax and the Federal Reserve, too….

So the Russian front continued at war, the Bolsheviks rode the anti-war sentiment and Western gold to power, Russia quit the war anyway –and then– Western money poured into Bolshevik Russia anyway despite their quitting the war…..
