They've Got Your Number

Want to be an investigative journalist of the future? You'll need a pen and paper, pay-as-you-go phone, and a motorbike. We'll explain the motorbike later. But you may be an endangered species. New regulations that came into force last week - requiring telephone and internet companies to keep logs of what numbers are called, and which websites and email services and internet telephony contacts are made - have left some wondering if investigative journalism, with its need to protect sources (and its sources' need, often, for protection), has been dealt a killer blow. Worries focus on the fact that every government department, local council and even quango can access this telephone and internet data, given a judge's clearance. What will they use it for? To investigate everything from treason to flytipping. Might it also be used to find out who has been tipping off a journalist on a local paper about the misdeeds of local councillors? That's the concern.

Here is video of Texas Gov. Rick Perry lending his "unwavering support" for Texas House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Perry asserts that the Federal Government has "become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state." "That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union."

Perry continued: "Millions of Texans are tired of Washington, DC trying to come down here to tell us how to run Texas."

"A number of recent federal proposals are not within the scope of the federal government's constitutionally designated powers and impede the states' right to govern themselves. HCR 50 affirms that Texas claims sovereignty under the 10th Amendment over all powers not otherwise granted to the federal government."

"It also designates that all compulsory federal legislation that requires states to comply under threat of civil or criminal penalties, or that requires states to pass legislation or lose federal funding, be prohibited or repealed."
Here is the full text of the resolution.

Dobbs On DHS "Right Wing Extremists" Document

Apparently the economy is a welcome distraction while the Marxist Democrats put their programs in place. Meanwhile, those of us who are Christians, Jews, Constitutionalists, anti-abortion, capitalists, and/or gun-owners are in their crosshairs. Since we already are being singled out and marked as undesirables, I wonder how long it will be before we are given our trackable microchips and "Red Star” tracking Bracelets to wear?

Jay Sekulow On DHS Warning
He talks about the recent document warning of "right wing extremism"

The Founding Fathers sought a system where government resided in the “golden mean.”
I learned decades ago in the — shudder, twitch, clear throat — JBS that, as Beck is now reminding those residents of this country, the political spectrum runs NOT from left to right but from 0% to 100%, 0 being NO GOVERNMENT (anarchy) and 100, TOTAL GOVERNMENT or TOTALITARIANISM). Fascism, Nazism, socialism, syndicalism, oligarchy (which ALL tyrannical systems are at their root), etc are all clustered over at or very near 100%.

Knowing that the normal tendency was for government to expand as it fed on the freedoms of its citizens, the Founders hoped to keep OUR system at or near that golden mean (around the 30% mark) and doing ONLY those things for the nation collectively that individual citizens could not. Those LIMITATIONS on government were — and STILL ARE — clearly spelled out in our now moribund Constitution.

As we move ahead into the possibly very dark tomorrow of which the last election was a harbinger and the so-called main stream media continue to bombard us with false descriptive terms like “left” and “right,” keep in mind the words of the men who went before — men who fully understood the promise of the system they ATTEMPTED to leave us.

“Yes, we did produce a near perfect Republic. But will they
keep it? Or, will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the
memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the
path to destruction. Thomas Jefferson (on the free
market/private property system they tried to leave us and the
incredible wealth they knew it would allow us to produce and
what MIGHT happen to us as a result. The familiar vernacular
expression today is “Fat, dumb and happy.”)

“In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in men but bind them down
from mischief with the chains of the Constitution.” Jefferson

“To preserve [the] independence [of the people,] we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses, and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes, have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account, but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers.” —Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816. ME 15:39

“, liberty, prosperity. These three rights are so bound
together as to be essentially one right. To give a man his life,
but to deny him his liberty, is to take from him all that makes
life worth living. To give him his liberty, but to take from him
the prosperity which is the fruit and badge of his liberty, is
still to leave him a slave. The next step in the logical chain
(after life, liberty, prosperity) is privacy the right to be
unmolested, left alone. Without this right, each of the other
three is compromised and vulnerable to destruction by an
omnipotent state.” Supreme Court Justice Sutherland

I could bore you further with the now forgotten and
disappeared wisdom of the men who remembered what America — the idea – meant, but will, like America — the idea — stop here.

I pray that the millions of citizens who participate in the TEA Parties today go from these events with a fire in their bellies to ACTIVELY and EFFECTIVELY oppose those who are set on destroying the idea of America. And make no mistake: THAT IS THEIR GOAL.

The forces of darkness NEVER SLEEP: NEITHER CAN WE!!!!
