April 2014 Begins the enforcement of the Real ID Act 2005 Constitutional Alliance – This is no April Fools Joke

Biometric identification for nearly all citizens is here.  I tried to stop this for years, but failed.

From Mark at the Constitutional Alliance:

To all:

This month is the first month in the enforcing of the Real ID Act 2005.
The Constitutional Alliance has published a new article today explaining the enforcement as it will play out this year and subsequent years.  You can read the article by visiting www.constitutionalalliance.org 
If you did not take the time to read the previous article “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” you should when visiting our web-site.
It is sad, actually pitiful when lawmakers do not take the time to read legislation before voting on that legislation.  The Constitutional Alliance has taken the time to provide citizens with analysis of Comprehensive Immigration Reform.  If citizens do not take the time to learn about legislation congress is considering and in this case the senate has already passed, what does that say about each of us?
Please share this email with everyone you are in contact with and ask those people to do the same.
Thank you,
Mark

Britain’s GCHQ guide to Online Covert Action

It has long been an open secret that U.S. and other government     agencies have been spreading disinformation and misdirection among     dissident groups, including various “patriot myths” designed to     disrupt activists and prevent them from making competent efforts.     One of the just-released documents by Edward Snowden includes the     British manual for doing that, which is shared with its allies. See     http://21stcenturywire.com/2014/02/25/snowden-training-guide-for-gchq-nsa-agents-infiltrating-and-disrupting-alternative-media-online/

So the next time you receive word from some “patriot” for actions     that are too simple, obvious, direct, and appealing, the odds are     high that is coming from a government agent.

Letter to Senator Overbey regarding SB1849 4th Amendment Protection Act

Much more detailed information about the NSA is available that what you see below, but I’ve been short on time; therefore, I put this together regarding Senator Campfield’s SB1849 4th Amendment Protection Act.  I do not expect Senator Overbey to stand against the NSA and for the privacy of we the people.  He has never championed freedom, but I am willing to be pleasantly surprised.

Senator Overbey,

Support Senator Campfield’s 4th Amendment Protection Act.  The federal government is out of control, and the NSA is one of many ABC organizations that the federal government has failed to reign in.

Do you seriously trust Barack Obama to reign in the NSA?  In case you need a refresher, here are 545 Examples of Obama’s Lying, Lawbreaking, Corruption, & Cronyism

Listen to NSA Whistleblower Thomas Drake here: http://www.bcpublicrecord.com/?p=4644

The 4th amendment is already being trashed with domestic enemy Commissioner of Dept. of Safety and Homeland Insecurity Bill Gibbons teaming up with the feds for VIRP.

The Washington Post reports that the black budget costs $52.6 Billion a year, but that’s a conservative estimate when the Dept. of Homeland Security has admitted that it doesn’t know how much it’s spending on Fusion Centers.

Tennessee has already wasted $200 million expanding the police state.  http://www.bcpublicrecord.com/?p=1150

This situation has gotten so out of control that Electronic Service Providers can’t even tell their lawyers what big snooping government wants.

Fusion center director: We don’t spy on Americans, just anti-government Americans.  Right, except who defines who is anti-government?  http://rt.com/usa/fusion-center-director-spying-070/

The US doesn’t even make the top 10 best countries to live in.
http://shine.yahoo.com/healthy-living/best-places-born-2013-175300116.html
Does that come as a surprise given the ever expanding police state?  I can provided hundreds of links to stories about police state expansion, police brutality, illegal spying and privacy violations if you want more.

Metadata collecting, parallel construction, loosely defined terms and flat out tyranny are taking place within the NSA and the federal government.  It’s time to stand up and support the rights of the people against an out of control reckless federal government.

Let freedom ring!

Cops War On People Deadlier than Iraq

Over 5,000 people have been killed in the US by police than US soldiers have fallen during the Iraq war over the last 10 years. The figure seems to reflect the increased militarization of police and, shockingly, means that you are 29 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist. We discuss the figures in this Buzzsaw news clip with Tyrel Ventura and Tabetha Wallace.

Harwell declares she’s a globalist

Speaker Beth Harwell, Nashville’s biggest hypocrite, has admitted that she’s a globalist.  Harwell made the following statement to the Tennessee Chamber about Common Core standards:

“There have to be standards in place, and the days of telling ourselves, ‘Our schools are doing fine by our own standards,’ that’s not good enough in this world anymore,” Harwell said. “There is a world standard now. There is a national standard now. And we want our children to be meeting it and surpassing it.”

If education is as important as politicians like to say it is, to attract good jobs and whatever they pull out of their heads, then why have any State or local standards on anything?  If education standards have to be global or national, then why aren’t working standards globalized?  Why do we need State run courts?  It would save the legislature the hassle of having to provide us with Soviet style judicial elections where the Governor gives us one candidate to vote for.

If standards need to be national or global, then why have State and local governments?  Following Harwell’s line of thinking big spending Republican run State government can be dissolved and the feds and globalist could run everything.  It is a tempting thought because it would rid Tennessee of hypocrite Harwell, momentarily.  The problem is she would run for federal office and then advocate that the UN should dictate national policy.

Did you politicians ever stop to ask why?

It’s not likely that these dunderheads have ever bothered to stop and ask why meth is rampant.  But hey if multiple laws have failed, why not pass another?  Why not just outlaw it altogether?  If it works as well as prohibition, it should be a smashing success and readily available to all at a higher price leading to more crime.

Natural Ephedra was made illegal.  Now the synthetic version could become prescription only.  The trouble with the big government nanny state is that the good people are punished because of the idiots.  Worse, the good people get to pay for the government to make a bad situation worse.  Drug use is terrible.  Government solutions to drug use are even worse.

Take the time to ask why people turn to drugs, and why they turn to particular drugs.

“In contrast with marijuana use, rates of other illicit drug use among ER [emergency room] patients were substantially higher in states that did not decriminalize marijuana use. The lack of decriminalization might have encouraged greater use of drugs that are even more dangerous than marijuana.”
- K. Model. 1993. The effect of marijuana decriminalization on hospital emergency room episodes: 1975-1978. Journal of the American Statistical Association 88: 737-747, as cited by the National Academy of Sciences, Institute of Medicine in Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Science Base. [6]

http://norml.org/aboutmarijuana/item/marijuana-decriminalization-its-impact-on-use-2

You can’t criminalize everything preemptively.  Government is always going to be behind the 8 ball on drug use.  Shortly after banning one substance, drug pushers will create something else, perhaps even more dangerous, for those seeking drugs.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could snap our finger and the drug problem would go away?  Wouldn’t it be nice if we could pass a law and the drug problem would go away?  It’s not that simple.  Very few matters can be governed successfully.  History clearly demonstrate drugs are a matter that can’t.  Government can change the direction of sheep by scaring them in a different direction, but some will still stray on a new path, just as dangerous if not more so.

Update:  It has been suggested that NORML isn’t the best source to quote.  My goal wasn’t to quote NORML, but rather to reference studies that stimulate the thought that perhaps government involvement has unintended consequence that can be harmful.  If someone can provide me with the actual study, I will update this post to link to it directly.  The article link appears to work one time and not the next.

Don’t let a link be a distraction excuse.  Do you own research and think critically on the matter.  Government prohibition of alcohol failed and the drug war is failing.

There is a wealth of reading material available.  Here are a few links to what was referenced above.
