By The People

There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,
contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance.
I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who
are not even aware of the dangers.

The Homeland Security Appropriations Act (H.R. 2892)

Most people are aware of how "pork-barrel" spending bills that may not be popular outside of a representatives constituency get through Congress on the backs of other more popular legislative acts, but it is not always about spending. It the case of the REAL ID act being placed on a military funding bill, it was made into law despite the objections of the majority of Americans.

The Homeland Security Appropriations Act has done a similar misdeed, by including a law that allows prisoner abuse to be covered up, something no honest American would have allowed to stand on its own. But like the REAL ID act it will be signed into law by the President and although it may ultimately prove unconstitutional, it will be quite an uphill court battle to get it overturned.

Although the courts ordered the DoD to release documents and photos of prisoner abuse pertinent to lawsuit filed by the ACLU, and according to an article in the Los Angeles Times, "After a court ordered the Bush administration to respond to the request, the Defense Department acknowledged the existence of the prisoner-abuse photos but sought to withhold them from the public on the grounds that their disclosure could provoke violence against U.S. troops and others in Afghanistan and Iraq."

This legislation is passed as expected by the Senate will basically let Congress and the new Administration off the hook, and allow both the abuse and the cover-ups to continue. I urge readers to write to their elected representatives in both houses and demand that this is stricken from the bill, as it allows the DoD to circumvent the rights of prisoners that were guaranteed by the Geneva Convention and by our own Constitution.

I know that there are many who will claim that our enemies do not follow those laws and treat our troops in captivity poorly. But we must be held accountable and set a better example of higher standards rather than than stoop to a level that is beneath our own principles of morality and human rights.

Lead by example and not by force.

The Late Great Internet: How Freedom Died

It was the grassroots campaign launched throught the Internet that got Obama the nomination over Hillary Clinton and into the White House. Now the Administration and the partisan Congress wants to end Internet freedom and usurp privacy under the guise of "cybersecurity." And the liberals in government think this is a good idea.

I am sick and tired of hearing and reading how our Constitutional rights are being unlawfully taken away. We really need to get back to the Constitutional government that was intended by our founders.

The right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances is inclusive of all media of which we have available to us and the Internet is part of that media. To allow government to pass laws and take from us those freedoms is criminal, treasonous, and a flagrant breach of the oaths each elected representative swore to uphold. We the people do have the right to recall these lying criminals. But I guess the question remains, "who will replace them?"

It is my intent to inform the public and educate them in how they can protect their Constitutional rights and return the power of governance back to the sovereign states and hence to the people themselves.

Senate bill 773: Cybersecurity Act of 2009 is a flagrant disregard for due process and an invasion of privacy. Contained in the language of this bill is "The Secretary of Commerce— shall have access to all relevant data concerning (critical infrastructure) networks without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule, or policy restricting such access…" which to me is a criminal act in and of itself.

There is no precedence for taking away the peoples rights, and no bill signed into law, no Executive Order, that is unconstitutional should be followed by the people, nor allowed to be enforced. And those that do are committing treason.

Mandatory Vaccinations

The recent H1N1 Swine Flu virus scare has many lining up for flu shots. Massachusetts is looking to make this mandatory as is other states. I am stating publicly that I will not comply and urge everyone else to refuse this as another abuse of power and infringement of out rights.

It seems that we are losing liberties at an alarming rate. Being "forced" to have a flu shot and to wear an ID bracelet for tracking people that have been vaccinated will do nothing to prevent the outbreak and spread of disease. These blatant infringements on the rights of the American people. When will this Orwellian abuse of power end? When did we give up our rights to choose what is best for ourselves?

Thomas Jefferson said, "Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the form of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question."

We have much more history now than Mr. Jefferson to show that his words still ring true today. I have never had a flu shot and never will. That is my right of choice and I will be damned if any government will take my rights away even in the name of national security or health.

Open Wide: Pelosi's Puppets Ram Debilitating Food Safety Bill Through

I posted this last spring, attended a town hall meeting with Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-OR) and he assured us that it was only a rumor with no basis in fact. It is really time for a revolt in America against this fascism.

The more people sit by and do nothing the more of our freedoms and rights will be taken away. Do they really think we will buy this as a good thing for food safety? More government involvement in the lives of us citizens is unjust and blatantly unconstitutional. Petition to recall these slobs from office before we all are imprisoned for growing our own gardens outside of USDA control. Can't speak for all but I will be resisting this and will continue to revolt against this socialist regime in Washington.

President Obama, get out of my private life and take your stooges with you. Can we recall a resident for usurping the Constitution? I don't care about prosecution, I do care about freedom and you sir, have no clue.

Abolish Organized Crime: End The Federal Reserve System

With all of the economic issues that face America and the rest of the world, it does seem apparent that no matter how much money is thrown at the problem, it does not go away. All we are doing is getting further and further into debt, and the buying power of the US dollar is rapid declining.

The video above is to educate and not to instill fear in you. It is the banking elite who as spin the fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) that is the cause of our economic issues around the globe. Fiat money is paper money with no inherent value. That is what we have had in the united States of American since a handful of Congressional leaders usurped the monetary system with the passage of the unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act of 1913.And no one in government has had the courage to stand up to this fraud save for Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) with his HR 604 and S 1207 bills to Audit the Fed.

While I do agree with him that an audit is what is needed, it does not go far enough to restore fiscal integrity and responsibility to the nations monetary system. But We The People can do something about that.

Credit unions do not operate under the same rules as banks, in that they are "owned" by the members, the depositors. In that sense members have voting rights and can exercise those rights to reduce the fractional lending practices allowed by the Federal Reserve System. Over a trillion dollars was "lent" by the Fed and the Inspector General of the Fed could not answer questions (would not?) pertaining to where that money went, when asked by FL Representative Grayson recently. But where was the outrage? Why wasn't it front page news and the opening story on the major TV networks? The only reason that I saw it was thanks to CSPAN.

If we are going to save American sovereignty, we all must take action now, before it's too late.
