Congress Exploits Our Fears to Take Our Liberty
By Ron Paul

April 22, 2013 “This week, as Americans were horrified by the attacks in Boston, both houses of Congress considered legislation undermining our liberty in the name of “safety.” Gun control continued to be the focus of the Senate, where an amendment expanding federal “background checks” to gun show sales and other private transfers dominated the debate. While the background check amendment failed to pass, proponents of gun control have made it clear they will continue their efforts to enact new restrictions on gun ownership into law.

While it did not receive nearly as much attention as the debate on gun control, the House of Representatives passed legislation with significant implications for individual liberty: the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA). CISPA proponents claim that the legislation is necessary to protect Americans from foreign “cyber terrorists,” but the real effect of this bill will be to further erode Americans’ online privacy.

Under CISPA, Internet corporations are authorized to hand over the private information of American citizens to federal agents, as long as they can justify the violation of your privacy in the name of protecting “cyber security”. Among the items that may be shared are your e-mails, browsing history, and online transactions.

Like the PATRIOT Act, CISPA violates the fourth amendment by allowing federal agencies to obtain private information without first seeking a warrant from a federal judge. The law also allows federal agencies to pass your information along to other federal bureaucrats — again without obtaining a warrant. And the bill provides private companies with immunity from lawsuits regardless of the damage done to anyone whose personal information is shared with the government.

CISPA represents a troubling form of corporatism, where large companies cede their responsibility to protect their property to the federal government, at the expense of their customers’ privacy and liberty. In this respect, CISPA can be thought of as an electronic version of the Transportation Security Administration, which has usurped the authority over airline security from private airlines. However, CISPA will prove to be far more invasive than even the most robust TSA screening.

CISPA and the gun control bill are only the most recent examples of politicians manipulating fear to con the people into giving up their liberties. Of course, the people are told the legislation is for “limited purposes,” but authority granted to government is rarely, if ever, used solely for the purpose for which it is granted. For example, the American people were promised that the extraordinary powers granted the government by the PATRIOT Act would only be used against terrorism. Yet soon after the bill became law, reports surfaced that it was being used for non-terrorism purposes. In fact, according to data compiled by the American Civil Liberties Union, 76 percent of the uses of the controversial “sneak-and-peak” warrants where related to the war on drugs!

Sadly, I expect this week’s tragic attacks in Boston to be used to justify new restrictions on liberty. Within 48 hours of the attack in Boston, at least one Congressman was calling for increased use of surveillance cameras to expand the government’s ability to monitor our actions, while another Senator called for a federal law mandating background checks before Americans can buy “explosive powder.”

I would not be surprised if the Transportation Security Administration uses this tragedy to claim new authority to “screen” Americans before they can attend sporting or other public events. The Boston attack may also be used as another justification for creating a National ID Card tied to a federal database with “biometric” information. The only thing that will stop them is if the American people rediscover the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin that you cannot achieve security by allowing government to take their liberties.

Alert: Obama administration to arrest local sheriffs who back Second Amendment

via http://www.naturalnews.com

sheriffs

(NaturalNews April 09, 2013 by: Lance Johnson) With new gun laws popping up all over the country, from Connecticut to Colorado, one cannot deny the country is dividing – some places trashing their rights and bowing to new orders, and other states standing up for personal liberty and responsibility. A civil war is brewing in the United States, and has reached a new boiling point with a new Colorado law that’s on its way to Governor John Hickenlooper’s desk.

This bill would give Obama’s Secret Service vast new powers to arrest sheriffs and other law enforcement that defend the republic’s Second Amendment rights. This is definitely an arrogant move by controlling globalists in the Obama administration.

Obama’s policies attract unforeseen violence

As the Obama administration continues campaigning against violence, new laws are being signed that actually perpetuate crime. To some, all the gun grabbing laws seem like conspiracy, but maybe the Obama administration is really just ignorant of the facts. Obama continues to welcome several gun laws that actually promote violence in the end. As seen in the Sandy Hook shooting, a gun-free zone attracts violence. As seen in Aurora, Colorado, a helpless defenseless crowd is a target. This is why the president and other high ranking officials have armed body guards at their side.

The Colorado bill grants Secret Service power over local sheriffs

The Colorado bill, SB-13-013, has quickly passed, giving Secret Service agents arrest powers by granting them the title of peace officer. This places them on the same level with state law enforcement officials, granting them power over local sheriffs.

As the bill was debated, no one could explain why it was even brought up.

“I was told it was so we can exercise 72-hour mental holds on our own citizens,” Sen. Kevin Lundberg said. “I found it curious…Currently a police officer, doctor, psychiatrist, registered nurse and other professionals just on the strength of their word can say they want a person taken against their will and put in a mental institution for up to three business days.”

Rep. Jared Wright was told that the law could be needed in case something happened during a motorcade procession.

Rep. Saine was told that the bill would help local law enforcement with check and wire fraud.

As the federal government covertly injects its power into new state laws, framework is being set up to begin a purge of Constitution-abiding sheriffs. It seems the federal government is secretly planning to expand its powers unchecked, and rule over the states, bypassing the Tenth Amendment.

As confusion mounts with this sweeping new power grab in Colorado, one can only wonder, “Is my state next?” “What might happen to my local sheriff?” “Is the federal government really this capable?”

28 of 29 Utah sheriffs write to Obama, in rebellion

Law enforcement officers across the country are fighting back, standing against the Obama administration. The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association is compiling a list of sheriffs, associations, and police chiefs who have vowed to uphold the Second Amendment in the wake of any unconstitutional action by President Obama.

In January, 28 of Utah’s 29 sheriffs signed a letter to Obama stating,

“We respect the office of the President of the United States. But make no mistake, as the duly elected sheriffs of our respective counties; we will enforce the rights guaranteed to our citizens by the Constitution. No federal officials will be permitted to descend upon our constituents and take from them what the Bill of Rights – in particular Amendment II – has given them. We, like you, swore a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and we are prepared to trade our lives for the preservation of its traditional interpretation.”

So is the federal government capable of arresting our local sheriffs?

Yes, with laws like these on the books, they can obviously affect and manipulate the legal system, but as real law is destroyed in America, more free people are going to grow wary and dismiss the law altogether, standing together with fellow sheriffs, oath keepers, and constitutionalists in defense of a free America.

In the end, liberty will prevail, for it has always stood the test of time.

Federal Government Renews Push To Disarm Veterans

via Lee Rogers, February 22, 2013, Blacklisted News

Veteran's Day Parade NYC 2010

 

The letter states as follows.

A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both pursuant to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub.L.No. 103-159, as implemented at 18, United States Code 924(a)(2).”?

 

It should become even more apparent that the U.S. government is attempting to implement a policy that will disarm a large number of military veterans. There are now reports from veterans who are receiving letters from the Department of Veterans Affairs stating that they could be banned from owning or possessing a firearm and ammunition should government officials deem them to be incompetent. The letters appear to have been sent to a number of veterans who are registered with the VA as having a disability. It is unknown how many veterans have received these letters but it basically proposes that the VA rate the veteran as incompetent to handle their benefit payments. If the veteran is classified as incompetent than according to the letter they would be effectively banned from owning a firearm.

So essentially if some government bureaucrat deems a disabled veteran as being incompetent it will prohibit them from buying, owning or transporting a firearm and ammunition. This is with no due process, no trial by jury or anything. As ridiculous as this might be, it falls right in line with the overall agenda that is at work to disarm veterans. With the American economy continuing to crumble, the establishment is gearing up for a revolt and if such a revolt takes place, veterans will be one of their primary threats. Veterans know how the military operates from the inside so it makes sense that they would want as many veterans disarmed as possible.Even though the gun grabbing traitors in Washington DC have backed off from many of their gun control proposals, they are now trying to push plans to expand the National Instant Criminal Background Check System to include all sorts of people who have or previously had so-called mental health problems. Veterans that have come back from multiple tours in the Middle East who are diagnosed with PTSD or have been prescribed any number of drugs by military doctors could fall into this category. Considering the government’s track record of using vague language in legislation, we can also safely assume that the definition of a mentally ill person will be up for great interpretation. So who knows how many people they will try to classify as being mentally ill in order to ban them from owning a firearm.

This is a completely disgusting agenda but it shouldn’t be unexpected. In reality the VA is a criminal institution that tries to do everything in their power to inhibit veterans from getting the benefits that they earned through their military service. The amount of red tape and hurdles they put in front of veterans just for them to receive their benefits is scandalous.

Before I end this article I’d just like to share a story that I think ties in with what I’m saying about the VA. A little over a decade ago I was actually in the U.S. Army for two years. During that time I encountered some of the most vile human beings I’ve ever had the misfortune of dealing with. The amount of incompetent idiots that I saw holding positions of authority that ran around on power trips trying to micromanage everything with their eyes bugging out was comical. Instead of looking at how well an individual performed their job many of these dirt bags were more concerned about stupid things like how shiny a person’s boots were. I’m not saying that everyone in the U.S. Army was like that, because I did meet some good people during my time in the military but the very best people left simply due to the fact that the military offers one of the worst working environments you could ever imagine.

The reason why I’m mentioning this is because the people who work for the VA seem to operate very much like the insane power tripping clowns who rise to prominence in the military. In my few brief encounters with people who work for the VA, I found them to be unbelievably condescending, rude and just plain unhelpful with everything. They act like you are inconveniencing them for actually making them do their job.

With this said, I believe the VA’s primary purpose is to give the illusion that the U.S. government is taking care of veterans. In reality the goal of the VA is to provide as little care as possible to veterans while at the same time maintaining this fallacy. The fact that they are sending letters to disabled veterans saying that they’ll forfeit their right to own a firearm if some government stooge says so is unbelievably sick on so many levels. This should hopefully prove to most people reading this that the VA is run by a bunch of demonic scumbags who should be fired and fed to the wolves.

Despite this, it is highly doubtful that we’ll see very many veterans comply with the stated policies in these VA letters. It just offers more proof that the U.S. government is run by a bunch of control freak psychopaths. At least we now have more of an idea of what angle they’re shifting towards in order to push their gun control agenda. Undoubtedly we will see them continuing to promote this idea of adding mental health checks into the background check system as a backdoor way to prohibit returning veterans from having firearms.

This of course does not represent a real solution to the alleged problem of mass shootings that has spawned all of this gun control talk. In almost every high profile so-called mass shooting case we’ve seen recently, the shooter was confirmed to be on some sort of prescription anti-depressant drug. We of course don’t see anyone in the establishment talking about going after the big pharmaceutical companies that make these drugs which are causing these people to go crazy. They’re the ones who should be held accountable but like out of something you would see in the science fiction book Brave New World, they need people on these drugs because it represents yet another aspect of their control system.

The Battle Of Athens

Unlawful use of force met with FORCE. DHS is prepped for civil war, are you?
The revolution will not be televised, c 1970 Gill Scott-Heron

Battle of Athens Highway Marker – McMinn County, Tennessee – 1946

The Battle of Athens was an armed revolt that gained national attention.  Attempting to end the control of an entrenched political machine, World War II veterans used force to ensure that on the day of local elections in 1946 every vote “was counted as cast.”  After local authorities locked themselves and the ballot boxes in the jail, veterans suspicious of foul play gathered weapons and ammunition and exchanged fire from this hill upon the jail, which once stood across the street.  The besieged authorities surrendered.  At a meeting in the courthouse, an interim government was set up, followed by the election of the veteran’s slate.

Why is the Federal Government making apocalyptic preparations? Is it because they see a repeat of the 1946 McMinn County War on a national scale?  Or, are the Orwellian measures a result of a much larger master plan, for reasons that are so secretive, corrupt or cataclysmic –  that a new American paradigm is being injected into the bloodstream of America’s citizens?

Whatever the reasons for the transfusion of unconstitutional Federal Government interventions, executive orders, restrictive laws and police militarization, the actions do not bode well for American citizens, Constitutional rights, or life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  Something is afoot on American soil and the real terrorists have become a parasitic disease feeding on an eroding tradition of American good will and a nation founded on Christian values, however virtuous and flawed.  The situation in the United States today is growing more unhealthy by the minute.

What are Americans to do?  If times were like 1946, American citizens would take matters into their own hands.  For it was in 1946, that a group of citizens, including a contingent of World War II veterans, revolted against local government corruption in McMinn County, Tennessee.  The local authorities of an entrenched political machine had taken ballot boxes to the jailhouse to count votes in secret and maintain a corrupt regime.  Citizen’s prior pleas for outside help, over years, were ignored.  Thus, an assault on the jail by area citizens was led by a group of veterans, who had just returned from World War II and the jail became a battleground for the besieged authorities.  After a shootout and a few sticks of dynamite that damaged the front of the jail, the panicked authorities surrendered.  Individual citizens restored the rule of law and ousted the corrupt.

However, times today are not like 1946.  Modern technology has transformed the American human condition to a much less self-reliant culture and with it the individual ability, community cohesiveness, or will to fight back.  And within the last decade and continuing to the present time, governmental measures are being taken to further erode the rights of America’s legal citizens.  A brief example:

  1. The passage of the Patriot Act.
  2. The passage of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.
  3. The construction of the largest communication intercepting & spy facility in the history of the world by the NSA, called Stellar Wind, will go live in 2013.  The April Issue of Wired has an exclusive report.
  4. Creation of The Department of Homeland Security and the TSA.  The most recent example is of an unbridled TSA goon harassing a 3 year-old boy in a wheelchair.
  5. Obama’s latest Executive Order titled, National Defense Resources Preparedness, which allows the government to seize control of virtually every aspect of society in both emergency and non-emergency situations.
  6. The militarization of state and local police forces, at taxpayer’s expense.
  7. The worldwide use of drones and more particularly in the United States.

When did the majority of Americans accept the idea that it is okay to perform a search, any search, on a 3 year-old boy in a wheelchair? Or for that matter, strip searching 95-year-old women.  A society can be judged by the way it treats its children and elderly and if the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA is any indication, the nation is headed completely in the wrong direction.  The fact is that under the Constitution of the United States of America, no authority has that right.  The 4th Amendment to the Constitution protects unreasonable searches and seizures, without probable cause.  The only individuals responsible for that 3 year-old are his parents.  And since when did America need a paper trail of orders, laws and rules to usurp the Constitution and rule of law.  In the name of what, have the Orwellian measures been enacted?  Independence?  Liberty?  Freedom?

 If the answer is terrorism, then that is as corrupt as the Republican and Democratic administrations and their parties that have enabled such powers, for the hypnotic juice in the blood transfusion Americans are being fed is fear, coupled with fear based totalitarian rule, pure and simple.  If history has taught humanity anything, it must be that tyranny’s anecdote is eventually found in blood.

The facts facing America point to an unrelenting assault on the freedoms of Americans, with unconstitutional and unreasonable force.  Some are blatantly obvious, while some are like a thief in the night, that come calling out of the darkness.

One example is found hidden in computer software programming.  How many people, other than the highly trained computer literate, can write software programming?  Better still, how many people ever question what the computer says?  And even more personal, how many times have you been told, that whenever a commercial mistake is made, which affects you, is blamed on a computer glitch, not a human being.  Yet, it is human beings that program and operate computers. Evidence, as shown in the video below, shows that a software program can flip votes, vis-a-vis voter fraud.  Has 1946 ever stopped,  in America?

 Another example of how shadows can gain forceful substance, is the upcoming publication of the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) in 2013.  So, who would take notice of that other than the medical and health professionals directly involved?  After all, it is not your everyday publication.  Well, there is one particularly nasty change in that manual that can have profound implications.  It is the proposed medicalization of normal grief into a mental disorder.  That’s correct, grief medicalized as a mental disorder.  Just words, right?  Not according to Joanne Cacciatore who wrote in her blog, “The change that most concerns me has to do with the “bereavement exclusion (BE).  In the current manual, the DSM IV, this exclusion means that a person who has suffered the death of a loved one may be diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) no less than two months following the loss.  Prior iterations, the DSM III, stated one year.  The new DSM 5, with a planned release date in early 2013, however, has again reduced that prescribed time frame from two months to two weeks, further pathologizing the authentic human experience of sorrow.  So, a person may, at the discretion of a psychiatrist, social worker, or psychologist, be categorized as ‘mentally ill’ as soon as two weeks following the death of a loved one.  While I don’t like or agree with either ‘time limit’, the arbitrary absurdity of ’14 days post-loss-then-becomes-depression-label’ has ignited a fire in the pits of my being against the DSM machine.”

And, you may well ask what does this manual on mental disorders have to do with anything written here?

Name one person in your life that hasn’t experienced grief longer than two weeks, or even two months.  Combined with all of the powers of unreasonable force the Federal Government has already procured, by either unconstitutional legislation and/or Executive Order, there now comes a proposed medical manual that legally legitimizes categorizing nearly every human being on the planet of being mentally ill, if they are diagnosed as having grief lasting longer than two weeks.  Now do you see the implications?  FEMA camps anyone?  And by the way, the American Psychiatric Association’s new public relations spokesperson previously worked at the Department of Defense.

Nazi genocidal policy killed about 11 million people.  Some of those were termed “mentally ill” and their fate was the gas chamber.  If it can happen in Germany, on planet earth, it can happen anywhere.  What exactly is the United States government preparing for?

There is a war on for your mind, by one means or another.  And the battle for ballot boxes in a little jailhouse in Tennessee, where veterans took on the fight, seems so long ago.

DHS, detecting every tiny trace of ANY substance on your body, instantly!

via http://lawenforcementtoday.com,

New York City’s Commissioner of Police, Ray Kelley, announced that his department is developing a terahertz scanner that will reveal firearms through clothing…  The technology is similar to infrared cameras. The major difference is the super high frequency of terahertz radiation; its wavelength is in the millimeter range. Kelly proposes mounting these sensors on patrol cars to detect illegal weapons on passersby.  The commissioner reported in his annual State of the NYPD Address that 88% of all persons detained for a stop-and-frisk in the first 9 months of 2011 were determined to be completely innocent.

via http://gizmodo.com, (Jul 10, 2012) picosecond terahertz laser scanners

Within the next year or two, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will instantly know everything about your body, clothes, and luggage with a new laser-based molecular scanner fired from 164 feet (50 meters) away. From traces of drugs or gun powder on your clothes to what you had for breakfast to the adrenaline level in your body—agents will be able to get any information they want without even touching you.

And without you knowing it.

The technology is so incredibly effective that, in November 2011, its inventors were subcontracted by In-Q-Tel to work with the US Department of Homeland Security. In-Q-Tel is a company founded “in February 1999 by a group of private citizens at the request of the Director of the CIA and with the support of the U.S. Congress.” According to In-Q-Tel, they are the bridge between the Agency and new technology companies.

Their plan is to install this molecular-level scanning in airports and border crossings all across the United States. The official, stated goal of this arrangement is to be able to quickly identify explosives, dangerous chemicals, or bioweapons at a distance.

The machine is ten million times faster—and one million times more sensitive—than any currently available system. That means that it can be used systematically on everyone passing through airport security, not just suspect or randomly sampled people.

Analyzing everything in real time

But the machine can sniff out a lot more than just explosives, chemicals and bioweapons. The company that invented it, Genia Photonics, says that its laser scanner technology is able to “penetrate clothing and many other organic materials and offers spectroscopic information, especially for materials that impact safety such as explosives and pharmacological substances.” [PDF]

Formed in Montreal in 2009 by PhDs with specialties in lasers and fiber optics, Genia Photonics has 30 patents on this technology, claiming incredible biomedical and industrial applications—from identifying individual cancer cells in a real-time scan of a patient, to detecting trace amounts of harmful chemicals in sensitive manufacturing processes.

Hidden Government Scanners Will Instantly Know Everything About You From 164 Feet Away

Above: The Genia Photonics’ Picosecond Programmable Laser scanner is capable of detecting every tiny trace of any substance on your body, from specks of gunpowder to your adrenaline levels to a sugar-sized grain of cannabis to what you had for breakfast.

Meanwhile, In-Q-Tel states that “an important benefit of Genia Photonics’ implementation as compared to existing solutions is that the entire synchronized laser system is comprised in a single, robust and alignment-free unit that may be easily transported for use in many environments… This compact and robust laser has the ability to rapidly sweep wavelengths in any pattern and sequence.” [PDF]

So not only can they scan everyone. They would be able to do it everywhere: the subway, a traffic light, sports events… everywhere.

How does it work?

The machine is a mobile, rack-mountable system. It fires a laser to provide molecular-level feedback at distances of up to 50 meters in just picoseconds. For all intents and purposes, that means instantly.

The small, inconspicuous machine is attached to a computer running a program that will show the information in real time, from trace amounts of cocaine on your dollar bills to gunpowder residue on your shoes. Forget trying to sneak a bottle of water past security—they will be able to tell what you had for breakfast in an instant while you’re walking down the hallway.

The technology is not new, it’s just millions times faster and more convenient than ever before. Back in 2008, a team at George Washington University developed a similar laser spectrometer using a different process. It could sense drug metabolites in urine in less than a second, trace amounts of explosive residue on a dollar bill, and even certain chemical changes happening in a plant leaf.

And the Russians also have a similar technology: announced last April, their “laser sensor can pick up on a single molecule in a million from up to 50 meters away.”

So if Genia Photonics’ claims pan out, this will be an incredible leap forward in terms of speed, portability, and convenience. One with staggering implications.

Observation without limits

There has so far been no discussion about the personal rights and privacy issues involved. Which “molecular tags” will they be scanning for? Who determines them? What are the threshold levels of this scanning? If you unknowingly stepped on the butt of someone’s joint and are carrying a sugar-sized grain of cannabis like that unfortunate traveler currently in jail in Dubai, will you be arrested?

And, since it’s extremely portable, will this technology extend beyone the airport or border crossings and into police cars, with officers looking for people on the street with increased levels of adrenaline in their system to detain in order to prevent potential violent outbursts? And will your car be scanned at stoplights for any trace amounts of suspicious substances? Would all this information be recorded anywhere?

Hidden Government Scanners Will Instantly Know Everything About You From 164 Feet Away

Above: A page from a Genia Photonics paper describing its ability to even penetrate through clothing.

There are a lot of questions with no answer yet, but it’s obvious that the potential level of personal invasion of this technology goes far beyond that of body scans, wiretaps, and GPS tracking.

The end of privacy coming soon

According to the undersecretary for science and technology of the Department of Homeland Security, this scanning technology will be ready within one to two years, which means you might start seeing them in airports as soon as 2013.

In other words, these portable, incredibly precise molecular-level scanning devices will be cascading lasers across your body as you walk from the bathroom to the soda machine at the airport and instantly reporting and storing a detailed breakdown of your person, in search of certain “molecular tags”.

Going well beyond eavesdropping, it seems quite possible that U.S. government plans on recording molecular data on travelers without their consent, or even knowledge that it’s possible—a scary thought. While the medical uses could revolutionize the way doctors diagnose illness, and any technology that could replace an aggressive pat-down is tempting, there’s a potential dark side to this implementation, and we need to shine some light on it before it’s implemented.

The author of this story is currently completing his PhD in renewable energy solutions, focusing on converting waste to energy in the urban environment. Even while most of this information is publicly available, he wanted to remain anonymous.

‘Anti-Federalists’ who oppose a New World Order are potential terrorist threats ( “Combatting Terrorism Center” at West Point)

According to a report from the “Combatting Terrorism Center” at West Point, ‘Anti-Federalists’ who oppose a New World Order as well as members of several other far right wing activist groups are potential terrorist threats.
West Point is the U.S. Military Academy that trains, educates, and prepares Cadets for their service in the U.S. Army. The CTC (Combatting Terrorism Center) at West Point was established following the events on September 11, 2001 because of the belief that strong initiative was needed to prepare Cadets for the new environments they would be headed into upon graduating in the post-9/11 era. The CTC provides a unique terrorism-based education and since its creation, the program has received international recognition for its studies, reports, and teachings on terrorism and terrorist threats. A new report from the CTC, however, suggests that far right wing political activists, not radical Islamic groups, are the new terrorist threat in America and even goes so far as to say that those who oppose a ‘New World Order’ are potentially violent terrorists. One of the groups this report warns of is the modern ‘Anti-Federalist’ group, which the report says contains people who believe the American political system has been hijacked by external forces interested in promoting a ‘New World Order,’ an idea that has even been confirmed by David Rockefeller in his book “Memoirs” [1] and George H.W. Bush in various speeches. The CTC report goes on to say that these ‘Anti-Federalists’ believe the federal government has become corrupt and tyrannical because of its intrusion on the civil constitutional rights of the American people and support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self-government. According to the report, these people believe that the push for a tyrannical global government would result in disarming the American people and their violence, the report says, may be directed towards the federal government itself and its proxies in law enforcement. The FBI and Department of Homeland Security have already released documents which suggest that anyone who has coffee grinders, coffee filters, goggles, and scientific equipment could be involved in creating CBR weapons and should be reported to local authorities. They have also stated that photographers should be monitored for potential terrorism and they have released guidelines for suspicious activity reporting at hotels. This newly released CTC report, which showcases the exploitation of people like Timothy McVeigh and the small wave of violence from right wing groups in the 1990s to suggest that all right-wingers are potentially violent and even loosely associates those who oppose a one world government with skinheads, Neo-Nazis, and the KKK, is only a small example of the growing paranoia over terrorism and the expanding surveillance state in America. Why is this all important? Regardless of personal ties to these groups, we must be asking the following question: If these people can be classified so easily as terrorists, what would prevent everyone from being a potential terrorist? Because according to American policy, anyone suspected of terrorism can now be indefinitely detained without a trial.

Mandatory drug testing to start at Saint Mary’s High School – COS CO


POSTED: 12:55 PM MST Dec 13, 2012  
Drug Testing In High School

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. –Starting in the fall of 2013, school officials at Saint Mary’s High School said they will start mandatory and random drug testing for all students.

Jon Kraus, the president of St. Mary’s said there has been the occasional incident over drugs, but no major problems at the private Catholic school.

According to Kraus, the change in policy is motivated by the desire to keep the school a totally drug-free zone.

He said it gives students a way to combat peer pressure.

Kraus said, “Having a drug testing policy in high school allows the kids to say, ‘I can’t do that. I might be tested on Monday and I don’t want to get myself in trouble’.”

As a private school, Kraus said students agree to the code of conduct before every school year. These new changes are now part of school policy.

That means at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year, every student will be required to undergo a hair drug test.

A few strands of hair will be cut from each student.

Those hair samples will be sent to Psychemedics Lab for testing. For more information about the test, click on this link: http://www.psychemedics.com

Then, Kraus said, random testing will start 90 days after the initial drug testing.

Each hair test costs about $40. There are 330 students at St. Mary’s which means the initial testing will cost about $13,200.

Students who test positive for drugs will not be reported to police unless it is required by law or police request results.

School officials said the most important part of the drug testing is that consequences will primarily be focused on helping students through therapeutic means.

However, students who test positive for drugs would be suspended for three days from school. They will also be suspended from co-curricular activities for 30 days.

In addition, administrators said students will be required to get help, especially if addiction is involved. Subsequent drug tests will also be required.

Officials said this is definitely the right choice for St. Mary’s High School.

According to administrators, parents and students should feel free to ask questions and voice concerns during the next few months.

Voluntary testing with parental permission is scheduled to start in March.

 

 

my opinion;

The slippery slope into tyranny is a long one, indoctrinating kids that unreasonable searches are okay and they have no rights under the US CONSTITUTION, specifically the Bill of Rights Article 4. This is an invasion of privacy and up to the parents to do to their kids if warranted, but not through the school system, private or otherwise!

Some think EVERYONE in America should be subjected to mandatory weekly drug testing. Those who fail to provide specimen or fail review will be sent to Guantanamo or some other rendition prison for a little r & r, or maybe we just send ’em to work rehab camps for corporate profits if they are ‘dirty’. Line up, zeee papers please! Be sure to receive your vaccine on the way out!

I understand that you don’t want your children harmed by smoking weed (they have this tendency to loose respect for all authority), yet you might turn right around and give them dangerous psychotropic drugs (anti-depressants) that that they pass out like candy these days to keep people compliant and numb; I know my brother was on them and it almost killed him (the correlation between psychiatric drugs and acts of violence including suicide and homicide has been well documented, look yourself). From what I’ve heard most kids are stealing their parents’ pain pills (aka hillbilly heroin) and od at the er. I wonder if they check for pharmaceuticals, high cholesterol too, and why not a DNA fingerprint for health and the ‘just in case you go missing’ BS!

I forgot since the PATRIOT and NDAA, we Americans have no defense against government or private/corporate intrusion on liberties; as speech, firearm ownership, or unlawful search of your body under the 4th (Bill of Rights); therefore we have no defense for the common liberty, freedom, and justice; only the wars and proxy of corporate/international interests, in far off lands and over the TV, in the name of ‘Freedom’ or keeping ‘terror’ at bay. Nor do we Americans have the presumption of innocence before search, unless warrant issued, since the war on freedom~uh humm I mean ‘war on terror’ makes us all suspect of something or another. We, the US people, should watch for all the signs of oligarchical totalitarianism, and how the ‘beast’ that has shown its head, aka tyranny, because an informed well armed citizenry is the only defense. some think I should take off the tinfoil but yall been warned (those who don’t know the big words look them up)

DNA fingerprinting had been done in Texas for years without parental consent (Andrea Beleno would rather be doing most anything else than dealing with how the State of Texas flat-out stole her son’s DNA fingerprint for a vast database of newborns at the hospital and against consent. For almost seven years, the state had been taking the blood of most newborns in Texas — and storing it without parental consent — for “possible use in medical research”), and under the radar.

I know, “If you aren’t doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about!”; yet I suspect something much more sinister than simple drug policy enforcement.

VERY IMPORTANT – This is teaching children a very bad message, THAT THEY ARE NOT TO BE TRUSTED
