‘They make George Orwell’s ‘Big Brother’ look tame’
Larry Klayman, founder of Freedom Watch, has launched a lawsuit against Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, NSA chief Keith Alexander, Verizon Communications chief Lowell McAdam and their agencies over the government’s massive data-mining project utilizing the private phone records of Verizon customers.
“There is no doubt that this massive illegal seizure had to be authorized and approved at the highest levels of the executive branch, which necessarily leads to the president, attorney general and the director of the NSA,” Klayman said.
“These violations of free speech, prohibitions against unreasonable search and seizure, and due process rights are unprecedented in American history. . . . Read Complete Report
OBAMA: AMERICANS SHOULD FEEL COMFORTABLE ABOUT SNOOPING
Says ‘if people can’t trust’ government, ‘then we’re going to have some problems here’
President Obama, in a strong defense of his efforts to monitor Americans’ telephone calls and other communications, argued that additional security certainly is worth the loss of some constitutional privacy rights, and further, he assured the nation that “nobody’s listening to the content of people’s phone calls.”
But he also confirmed that it is the content of telephone calls that is being targeted, and there’s a process available for investigators who want to listen in: just get permission from a court. . . . Read Complete Report
Teacher Faces Disciplinary Action For Telling His Students About Their Constitutional Rights
“According to Town Hall:
““An Illinois Social Studies teacher faces disciplinary action for reminding his students of their Fifth Amendment rights when filling out a school survey on behavior…John Dryden was collecting the surveys before class when he noticed the students’ names were printed on them. He looked to see what was being asked and noticed questions about alcohol and drug use…Dryden told his students that they had a Constitutional right to not incriminate themselves by answering questions on the survey.””
“As a result of Mr. Dryden informing his students about their basic Fifth Amendment rights, he is now facing disciplinary charges. Lucky for him, numerous people have risen to his defense.” . . . Read Complete Report

Fox Hosts Tear Into ‘Misleading’ Eric Holder, Question If He Lied Under Oath About Going After Press
Published on May 28, 2013
5/28/13 – In light of the matter involving the Justice Department and Fox News reporter James Rosen, the Fox & Friends crew went after Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday morning, questioning whether he may have been dishonest under oath when asked about DOJ targeting. Despite what he said, the hosts argued, it’s clear he was involved.
“Few on the right believe the administration’s ever-changing stories regarding Benghazi, the IRS targeting conservatives, and the DOJ seizing the phone records of reporters. The struggle has been to elicit more information to fill in the gaps, or determine who was lying and when.
“But Beck said that tonight, for the sake of covering all the bases, we should analyze the ramifications of if the president and his top officials are actually telling the truth.” . . . Read Complete Report
The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund has obtained documents that prove OWS protesters encamped in Terry Schrunk Plaza in Portland, Oregon, were evicted for political and business reasons – not for the reasons the city stated, which were health and safety concerns. The documents also shed light on police activity in Boston and across the nation in terms of the OWS movement in general. The Resident (aka Lori Harfenist) talks about the issue.

What is the real issue at hand concerning the attempted raping of the Second Amendment rights of American citizens? Is it really about preventing more violence or protecting our children? Or is it something else completely different being hidden under the guise of preventing violence.
Here is Obama’s understanding of the Second Amendment:
“I, like most Americans, believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms. We have a strong tradition of gun ownership in this country and the vast majority of gun owners act responsibly…”
“We recognize the traditions of gun ownership that passes on from generation to generation, that hunting and shooting are part of a cherished national heritage.”
In a dangerous mass brainwashing campaign, President Barack Obama has been telling the nation that the Second Amendment is all about hunters and hunting. The reason he is doing that is because so many Americans today abhor hunting and will get behind his efforts to start banning guns and ammunition. I’m actually surprised he’s not running scenes from Bambi where Bambi’s father gets shot by a hunter. . . . Read Complete Report

Now it begins, the establishment will start to confuse and divide.
By ridiculing the researchers who are monitoring the governments continuing experiments in weather control and throwing the weirdest, most unbelievable theories into the message they install in the minds of the uninformed the thought that anyone who thought a hurricane can be controlled was nuts. Therefore the idea that any government was able to control weather is ridiculous.
Have they even reached the point where they could create a hurricane the size of Sandy?
And if the answer to that is yes then the big question becomes, why?
I personally believe that if the Secret Government & Military-Industrial complex continued the study of weather control after the Vietnam War, and I know of no reason they would not, the advances they have made would be tremendous. Therefore, I believe, using the knowledge they gained during the last half of the last Century, along with the-state-of-the-art technology available today, it would be possible to create and manipulate a Hurricane Sandy.
But why? If we can answer that we will also know “Who.”
I will be serching for a possible answer to these question over the next weeks. Please add your comments, any relevant links, articles, ideas etc. To the “Comment” link on the task bar above. Thanks for your help . . . EDITOR
5 Crazy Right-Wing Conspiracy Theories About Hurricane Sandy
October 31, 2012
It’s not just God’s wrath for a tolerant society.
Even before the winds of Hurricane Sandy began to moderate, conspiracy theorists of a variety of bents got busy explaining thereal meaning of the storm. Because, of course, a monster storm can’t just come from something like “weather” or “climate.” No, a storm like that just must be the product of nefarious or, perhaps, spiritual forces too big for most of us to understand. And so, while millions of Americans deal with the aftermath of what has become the largest Atlantic tropical storm in recorded history , lots more are busy explaining what’s behind all that wind.
Hurricane Sandy is out in full force; I’m currently waiting for the slow-moving frankenstorm to bear down on me as I tap this out (good thing there plenty of memes to keep me distracted). As is to be expected, there’s been some good discussion about how much of the storm is attributable to climate change—Lloyd collected some of the best pieces exploring that link yesterday. And I’ve argued that humans have built a veritable frankenstorm factory by spewing CO2 into the atmosphere; now we have to figure out how to live in it. . . . Read Complete Report
When it comes to the birth of America, most of us are working from a stew of elementary school history lessons, Westerns and vague Thanksgiving mythology. And while it’s not surprising those sources might biff a couple details, what’s shocking is how much less interesting the version we learned was. It turns out our teachers, Hollywood and whoever we got our Thanksgiving mythology from (Big Turkey?) all made America’s origin story far more boring than it actually was for some very disturbing reasons.
