How clever is this!  A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward.  This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward. Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite too. This is only a 1 minute 44 second long video, but it is brilliant.  Make sure you read as well as listen...forward and backward. This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20 year old: The contest was titled "u @ 50" by  AARP. This video won second place. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause.  So simple and yet so brilliant. Take a minute and watch it.. Click here:  Lost Generation

Glenn played one of the more amazing pieces of audio you'll ever hear - a Congressman so arrogant it's actually shocking (as opposed to the arrogance we are used to). He's talking to some citizens and Minutemen about the dire situation on the border - the Congressman amazingly mocks them as callous murderers and avoids answering questions.

Video: Unethical Reporters Make Unprofessional Comments at CSU

Following Gov. Palin's speech at Stanilaus last night, several reporters made disparaging remarks about her not knowing or caring the mic was open.

Full of snark, they quipped about how it was "not possible to capture dumbness in two soundbites." Apparently, it is possible, because these reporters just did, capturing their own rank stupidity on an open mic.

We can only guess what kind of dispatches these "objective" reporters filed. This behavior is precisely why they are called "lamestream". If these reporters so could not stand Gov. Palin, they had an obligation to recuse themselves. A reporter's job is to cover the news, not broadcast snarky opinions on an open mic.
This video captured an egregiously unethical, and unprofessional act. These reporters should be fired.

Liberal Journalist: “I Hate When People Chant U-S-A”

You would think that if there were one thing people could agree on, despite their politics, it would be cheering for the United States in a sporting event. But no, not for Jeremy Scahill.

Scahill, a regular contributor for left-wing The Nation magazine, has dedicated the past several years of his life to an obsession over the defense contractor Xe Services LLC, formerly known as Blackwater. But apparently Scahill can't overcome his politics and take pride in his country's World Cup soccer team. In a series of posts on his Twitter account, Scahill vented his frustrations over cheering for the United States in the World Cup:

I hate when people chant U-S-A.

If a night raid in Afghanistan was televised, would these drunk asses chant U-S-A, U-S-A when civilians are killed?

I like the US players, I just think it's gross to chant U-S-A when we are killing people daily.

Enviros Sue to Ban July 4th Fireworks Display

Apparently the "rockets' red glare" isn't "green" enough for some environmentalists.

Fourth of July fireworks displays have been deemed "ecologically hazardous" by some eco-warriors, who are urging environmentally-conscious Americans to shun the tradition.  Read More Here 

Cap & Trade Could Regulate 4th of July Fireworks!  -  Americans use more than 200 million pounds of fireworks each year, the majority on July Fourth. Because fireworks emit carbon dioxide (CO2) as they burn, however, the fireworks industry may come under tighter regulation if cap-and-trade legislation passes in the Senate in coming months.  Read The Full Article

Let us show these people that we are done and enough is enough.  We love America… We bleed red, white and blue…  We love our Constitution… We love our history…  We like free-market Capitalism… and We love our own traditions, heritage and way of life… and aren’t going to give it up.

Please display your flags this long holiday weekend, take part in at least one patriotic activity and take some time talking to your kids about the American Revolution and Freedom, read them a book or story about it or watch a move like John Adams or Yankee Doodle Dandy this weekend… and if called upon, please stand up for America!

Kagan Hearings Have Begun – Kagan Bombs On Day 2

Kagan:  Markets and Morals

Please call, fax, and email you Senators today… all the Senators if you can!

In two days of hearings Kagan has enforced that she lied (again) to the American people in her opening statements.  She believes judges can change the Constitution and use International Laws (how about Sharia) in their considerations and rulings.  She is pro-partial birth abortions (an extreme left stand), anti-gun, anti-military, pro-gay but lies about it, and pro book banning.  She also thinks that government should be able to tell you what you can eat.  She is and will be a judicial activist who could push this agenda for another 40-years on the high court.

Do not buy the GOP argument that they are only replacing another liberal judge…  Only 19% of Americans identify themselves as liberals.  They are over represented on the court and this one is an uber-liberal ideologue.  Remember Judge Bork, should be the cry.  The Dems blocked his nomination for much much less than we have already learned about Kagan in 2-days.  We cannot afford an Elena Kagan on the Supreme Court for the next 40-years.  And using the replacement argument… what if a conservative seat or Constitutionalist seat comes up and the GOP losses again?  Each seat and the Constitution needs to be fought for!

Remember that Kagan interned for the two most liberal U.S. judges ever and her judicial idol is radical Israeli Judge Barak

Video:  The Other Barak?  (Aharon Barak)

Video: Kagan: Constitution Was Meant To Be "Interpreted Over Time" from RCP Video on Vimeo.

It has been proven over and over that judicial candidates will say whatever they need to or just avoid answering certain questions during confirmation hearings and then they vote and interpret the Constitution according to their politics instead of the Law and Constitution… If Kagan has said as much as she has… it is more than a concern, it proves she is an ideologue and that she can’t refrain, even under these circumstances.  Kagan has now already said that the Constitution is meant to change and be interpreted as times change as well as allowing foreign law to be considered.  She will be a  leftist partial advocate judge… not what a Supreme Court Judge needs and must be.  Please, let us not let this be another Obama moment, where all the info and signs are there, but are ignored.

PLEASE CALL YOUR SENATOR TODAY AND TELL THEM THAT ELENA KAGAN IS "UNFIT TO SERVE ON THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT!," and that if they DO vote for her, you will vote AGAINST them at the next possible opportunity...and you'll convince hundreds of your friends to do likewise!

Gov Chris Christie… Talk of the Town and the Internet

Video:  Cavuto Interviews HJ Gov. Christie Part 2

Video:  Christie Townhall – Taxes

Video:  Governor Christie Tells Teacher to Quit if She is Unhappy

Video:  Chris Christie Takes on Teachers’ Unions on Morning Joe

Two tributes, the second chuckleworthy, to last night’s media harangue heard ’round the world via the Right Scoop. Even Dave Weigel of WaPo’s “Those Darned Wingnuts” beat seems to have enjoyed it, although he wonders why Christie tearing a reporter to pieces is super cool on the right while Obama occasionally getting snotty with his opponents is grounds for outrageous outrage. Quote:

I can’t help but notice, however, the difference between the reaction Christie’s getting and the reaction President Obama gets when he rips into reporters, either to their faces or at rallies. Obviously, you expect conservative partisans to like Christie and liberal partisans to like Obama. But we’ve seen conservatives deride Obama’s “lecturing tone,” to Republicans, exhibit outrage when he reportedly used the word “teabagger,” accuse him of stiffing the press when he told a reporter his question was a “waste” — in other words, no atta-boys for Christie-esque behavior.

There are a lot of reasons for this. Obama’s tone is not Christie’s tone, and Obama’s rationale for office was not Christie’s. Obama ran explicitly as a uniter, so any swing at the opposition or his critics gives conservatives the opportunity to be “deeply disappointed” at Obama’s rhetoric. Christie has less to lose — despite defeating an unpopular incumbent, he’s not all that popular in his state. But the split reaction is interesting.

Some of the difference is due to pure partisanship, of course. Remember how John McCain’s temper supposedly made him a borderline lunatic who might push the button on a whim if elected president? Meanwhile, people like Rahm Emanuel and David Obey who are famous on the Hill for spitting F-bombs in people’s faces are just “colorful” or whatever. Part of it too is wanting to hold Obama accountable for the aura he’s built up around him. After the millionth fawning media tribute to his “first-class temperament” and Obama’s own tedious above-the-fray tut-tutting about civility, rubbing his face in his own displays of incivility is irresistible. He’s entitled to sell himself as a mix of Jesus and Bambi, but that’s going to raise the bar of expectations a bit, yes? Plus, as president, more decorum is expected of him simply by virtue of the office he holds.

There’s another explanation for the difference, though. One of the reasons righties dig Christie, I think, is the perception that he’s on something of a one-man mission. As a deep red governor in a deep blue state with a blue media haunting him, he’s besieged on all sides. His pugnaciousness seems like a virtue because it shows his determination to confront entrenched liberal interests in New Jersey notwithstanding the armies arrayed against him. The One, by contrast, has most of the media in his pocket and giant Democratic majorities in both houses (albeit not for long). He’s got it made, for the moment. No wonder, then, that when he gets irritated, it seems not so much pugnacious as … peevish, and petty.  Hot Air

Kagan Hearings Have Begun… Kagan Bombs on Day 2

Let us begin by remembering that someone’s personal and professional histories; their choices and ideology; and their past words and deeds  mean more than prepared remarks written for  a desired effect (and by a professional speech writer), especially when that person has allowed the White House to put a cocoon around them and hide parts of their past.

Two examples jump to the forefront if my mind.  Without ever being asked Elena Kagan immediately lied to the American people about her sexual preference.  And when you are a public official… especially a judge who will rule on the most controversial cases and issues in the land, truth as well as your personal information and biases are critical.  And secondly, a large part of Kagan’s speech and opening pitch  before the Senate was about her belief in the Constitution.  Yet if that were so and truly her belief, as Law School Dean at Harvard as well as head of Kagan Publishing & Development, Kagan could have championed the move back to teaching Constitutional Law away from the Progressive perversion of the teaching of law through Case Law, that has been adopted and taught for generations now in the overwhelming number of Law Schools in America.

Interesting:  Elana Kagan Isn’t Gay But Her Partner Is  & 

Harvard brags about their lesbian dean - click here.

According to several current and former administration officials, it’s highly likely that the vetting process would result in plenty of information about any nominee’s personal life – including whether someone is heterosexual, gay, lesbian, bisexual, adulterous, or with a child out of wedlock.  A nominee may not be asked about it directly, but such information would likely come out through interviews with friends or colleagues.

Vetting processes also turn up detailed personal information about finances, family, religion and all sorts of matters that might be uncomfortable -- the point is to spare the nominee and the president any embarrassment or surprises during the confirmation process.  (Political Punch ABC News)

Being gay is not the issue!  Lying, Progressivism, Judicial Activism and On-going Misrepresentation are the issues!

Then you add her lack of experience as a lawyer and in business of any kind… and we find ourselves with another academic like Obama himself and most of this cabinet and czars; not what we need.

Fox attacks Kagan for Harvard's acceptance of grant by major News ...

“Folks, having seen some of her previous positions, comments and causes she fought for, I’m not too happy about her nomination, but here’s political truth that might sting a bit: Elections have consequences.”  Mike Huckabee.  Yes they do, and Kagan is just another example, but that doesn’t mean we need to sit still for it!

Supreme Court Overturns Chicago Handgun Ban

Supreme Court Overturns Chicago Handgun BanDeeply divided Supreme Court on Monday decided that the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment gives all Americans the individual right to keep and bear arms. The case, in which the conservatives outvoted the liberals 5-4, followed in the path of a decision a two years ago in the case District of Columbia v. Heller that interpreted the Second Amendment to give residents of the federal District of Columbia the right to own a gun.

In the new case, McDonald et al. v. The City of Chicago, the lead plaintiff was a sympathetic elderly African-American man who wanted a gun to defend his home against local gangs, but was barred from owning one legally due to Chicago's blanket prohibition on handgun ownership. Although the Court technically only decided that the Second Amendment applies to the states, and remanded the case to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, the Heller decision ensures that Chicago's absolute gun ban will fall, and gives everyone an individual right to own a gun.

This ruling is a perfect example of why every confirmation and appointment to the Supreme Court is critical.  It is the perfect example, coming just as Elena Kagan’s hearing began.  Kagan was and would have been on the dissenting end of the decision.  The GOP needs to fight the Kagan appointment with all it has.  Kagan is a Progressive, not at Constitutionalist and has already shown that her opinion is outside the mainstream and as been overturned.  Her favorite judge is a radical Israeli judge that everyone  considers extreme.  If it takes  a filibuster to prevent her appointment, that is what the GOP needs to do.  Stop rolling over!!  Remember Kagan’s own words… she loved the Bork hearings.  The Bork appointment was halted by the Dems.

Judge Robert Bork said Elena Kagan’s admiration of Israeli Judge Aharon Barak is “disqualifying in and of itself” for her to sit on the Supreme Court.  See full article from DailyFinance:

Bork said Barak “may be the worst judge on the planet” because of his judicial activism and that the Israeli court under Barak was the “most activist court” he’d seen. Kagan has called Barak her judicial hero.

The WHO's (White House Occupant's) Supreme Court Justice Nominee, (and like Sonia Sotomayor, a radical, extreme leftist (as skeptics shall soon see), who has the motive to LIE under oath at her confirmation hearings, like Sonia Sotomayor did, Elena Kagan), has called someone many consider to be a the most radical advocate for an agenda-driven judiciary, by the surname of Barack, her "hero."
What do we know about this extreme leftist radical in a robe? Aharon Barack, Elena Kagan's "judicial hero," believes that unelected judges should be the final arbiters of all decisions in "democracies." Very few Americans have even heard of this unprincipled man, but he is the hero of Kagan, and thus, he deserves closer scrutiny.
And we should remember that the dream of revolutionary Marxists, Maoists, Stalinists, Nazis, and other assorted leftist extremists, in the age of American superpower, is to have America be chained to the laws of other nations, when the Constitution gets in the way, so they can guide American justices AROUND THE CONSTITUTION.

Anyway, here's the video clip of this "other" Barack, who is a threat to our Liberty if Kagan is able to slip past our incompetent U.S. Senate, and make it onto the Supreme Court:

Video:  The Other Barak?  (Aharon Barak)

First Official Day of Kagan Hearing: Kagan Bombs:  OK’s Foreign Law, Says Constitution Was Meant to be Interpreted and Change with Time…  Get Her Out of There!!

Video:  Kagan: Constitution Was Meant To Be "Interpreted Over Time" from RCP Video on Vimeo.

Elena Kagan, under questioning from Sen. Chuck Grassley, said there were certain cases in which it would be "appropriate" for the Court to cite international law. As an example, she gave the Hamdi v. Rumsfeld case in which the Court ruled that U.S. citizens being detained indefinitely as enemy combatants must be granted the option of challenging their detention in court.

Here were her full comments, after Grassley asked, "If confirmed, would you rely on or cite international foreign law when you decide cases?":

I think it depends. There are some cases in which the citation of foreign law, or international law, might be appropriate. We spoke earlier, I forgot with which of the Senators, about the Hamdi opinion. The Hamdi opinion is one in which the question was how to interpret the authorization for the use of military force. And Justice O’Connor in that case, one of the ways in which she interpreted that statute, was by asking about the law of war and what the law of war usually provides. What authority the law of war provides. And that’s a circumstance in which in order to interpret a statute giving the President various wartime powers, the Court looked at what the law of war generally provided. So there are a number of circumstances. I think, I mean, another example would be suppose the President has the power to recognize ambassadors under Article II. And there might be a question, well, who counts as an ambassador? And one way to understand that question is to look at what international law says about who counts as an ambassador. And that may not be determinative. But it would be possibly something to think about and something to cite. Read more ...

Kagan: Citation of International Law “Appropriate” In Some Case  - This is how the UN, Sharia Law and other non-American laws creep into our country.  It is never to site, quote or acquiesce to any foreign or International Law.  This opinion alone should disqualify Kagan from the Supreme Court!!!

Fight the Dodd-Frank Financial Regulatory Reform Bill  -  H.R. 4173

--> –> We might have received some help on this one:  Byrd's Death May Imperil Finance Reform Bill  <—<--

Dear Patriot:

Are you new to Liberty Central? If so, please go here to watch Liberty Central's Introductory Video.

We have it! On Saturday night we received what we were told is the final text of the Dodd-Frank Financial Overhaul bill. We are aggressively reading it and will be releasing our notes as we sort through the bill. We urge you to  take action now by going here and emailing your Representative and telling them to oppose it! You can also  read the text of the bill by going here. If you find something in it and you want to let us know, drop us a note and we will make sure your findings are noted.

On another note, Liberty Central is now one month old! We've accomplished a lot in the last month and we are accelerating in all areas! However, there is no time for celebration. We are faced with fighting the Dodd-Frank Financial Regulatory Reform bill that is likely to come up for a vote in Congress next week.

Do you want Congress to pass a bill that could give the government control of up to 60% of the American economy? Of course not! That is why you need to call your Representatives and Senators immediately and tell them to oppose the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Bill!

Please pass this email along to 10 more people and have them join the Liberty Central "Impact Bomb."

One Month Old and Over 15,000 Direct Actions for Liberty!

Liberty Central is now one month old. What does that mean? It means that...

  • Mike Lee, the candidate endorsed by Liberty Central, won the Republican Senate Primary Runoff in Utah on June 22nd.
  • Over 15,000 people have voiced their opinion directly to Congress and the President through
  • Liberty Central has done over 50 media appearances.
  • Over 100,000 people have visited and we are well on our way to one million visitors!

Fight the Dodd-Frank Financial Regulatory Reform Bill

Congress is trying to push through a 2000 page bill that will give the government control of up to 60% of the American economy! The Democrat leadership want to vote on this next Tuesday and they have only partially released the bill to the public! You can view more facts at the bottom of the email. We urge you to call and email your Representatives and Senators and voice your opinion!

Facts About the Dodd-Frank Financial Regulatory Reform Bill! (Fight it here!)

A source on Capitol Hill told Liberty Central, "There are so many changes in the bill that it's going to take a couple of days to make the bill available to the public."

Apparently, everyone's "going to work over the weekend" but Democrat leadership still want the vote to be next Tuesday. This doesn't give people - and Congressional Members - enough time to read the bill!

1. This bill is going to control up to 60% of our economy by telling us what we can, and can't do, with our money.  This will touch every single person who has a bank account or who uses a credit-card.  Just like Cap and Trade and Health Care, this is Washington's latest effort to grab power and take control of our lives.

2. Here's another example of the Obama Administration and Congress's lack of transparency.  By Friday afternoon, this bill still wasn't available for other Members of Congress or to the general public to read - and Pelosi and Reid want to vote for it on Tuesday. 

3. The Obama Administration and Congress keep making gambles with our money.  Sen. Dodd actually said, "No one will know until this is actually in place how it works." 

4. From what we hear, here are some of the specific problems with the text of the bill:

  • Does nothing to solve the root problem of the financial crisis - giving loans to people who can't afford to pay them.  Instead, it encourages lenders to continue this risky practice.
  • Creates an entirely new federal bureaucracy within the Federal Reserve.
  • Gives the government power to break up "failing" companies, without a clear definition of "failing."
  • Sets up strict rules and increases costs for banks, which means that bank customers will have to pay more for their services.
  • Gives the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, two boards of unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats, new powers to regulate businesses as they wish.
  • To pay for these new government programs and powers, Washington is going to charge banks and hedge funds $19 billion in fees - this money will have to come from somewhere and the American people, as bank customers, are going to pay the price tag.

TAKE ACTION: Oppose the Dodd-Frank Financial Overhaul Bill  -

Do not wait. Go here to take action NOW!

There is still a chance to stop these 3 Bills:  Financial Reform debacle, the Disclose Act and Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, or PCNAA, dubbed the Internet Kill Switch Bill.  All 3 of these bills are disastrous for Americans and Freedom… add to that the confirmation of Kagan, the gulf disaster and Obama’s threat to use an Executive Order (EO) to declare Amnesty, it is overwhelming… but planned to be so by Obama and cronies!!

The compromise bill now goes to the House and Senate for approval, and on its way to the Obama Triple Crown. There will be a lot of distractions out there in an attempt to keep your eye off the ball: Kagan hearings, Petraeus hearings, House and Senate vote on the final Financial Reform bill, the Gulf oil disaster, and anything else Mr. Obama can drum up.

When this month ends, we will have four months until Election Day, November 2, 2010.

Senator Byrd Dies at Age 92

Whether you liked Robert Byrd or not, he was an Icon in the U.S. Senate.

Senator Robert Byrd, who passed today at age 92, has the distinction of holding the record for longest service in the U.S. Senate.  And with his and Ted Kennedy’s passing, and era has also passed.

What we can say is that Robert Byrd always carried a copy of the U.S. Constitution with him and was a staunch defender of it; and example of a dinosaur among Democrats.  He also regularly quoted scripture and he was a self-made man.  Son of a West Virginia minor and born into poverty.

He might also be an example of someone who voted for Barack Obama not only because of party affiliation but because of political correctness and guilt… like so many other Americans.

Sen. Robert Byrd, 1917-2010

Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, the longest-serving senator in American history, died Monday at the age of 92.

Byrd, a Democrat who served in the U.S. Senate since 1959, had been plagued by health problems in recent years and was confined to a wheelchair. He had skipped several votes in Congress in the past months.

He was the oldest member of the 111th Congress.
Byrd held a number of leadership roles during his tenure in the Senate, including conference secretary, majority whip and majority leader -- twice.

Prior to his death, Byrd worked as the president pro tempore -- the second highest ranking official in the Senate and the highest ranking senator in the majority party, putting Byrd third in line to the presidency.

He also served as the senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, and the chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security. Other committees on which Byrd served were the Senate Budget, Armed Services and Rules and Administration Committees.

Byrd, who never lost an election, cast more than 18,540 roll call votes -- more than any other senator in U.S. history. He had a 98 percent attendance record in his more than five decades of service in the Senate, according to his Web site.

Byrd was born Cornelius Calvin Sale, Jr. in North Wilkesboro, N.C., in 1917. When his mother died in the 1918 flu pandemic, he was sent to live with his aunt and uncle, who renamed him Robert Carlyle Byrd and raised him in the coal-mining region of southern West Virginia.

He received his law degree from American University in 1963, and his undergraduate degree from Marshall University in 1994 -- at age 76.
Byrd was widely regarded as a pre-eminent expert on constitutional law and legislative procedures. Because of his intimate knowledge of Senate rules, he was both feared and respected by his political opponents.

He helped win ratification of the Panama Canal Treaty and was well known for steering federal dollars to his home state. He was also a strong opponent to the Iraq war and vehemently defended minority party rights in the Senate.

He was elected to Congress in 1952, representing West Virginia's 6th Congressional District. Six years later, he was elected to the U.S. Senate.

Byrd threw his support behind Barack Obama a week after the then-senator lost the West Virginia Democratic primary to Hillary Clinton during the 2008 presidential campaign -- an endorsement that symbolized the shift in his views on race. Read more ...

Media Bias in Lawmakers’ Obits?

The life stories of Senators Strom Thurmond and Robert Byrd are similar but the way they were covered in death has been as different as night and day.

Thurmond, a Republican, opposed segregation and supported states rights. When he died, the Associated Press story included the following headline that appeared on June 27, 2003:


Byrd, a Democrat, was a former member of the Ku Klux Klan. When he died, the Associated Press story included the following heading on July 28, 2010:


Both obituraries were written by the same writer, Adam Clymer. The headlines appeared in the The New York Times.

In the June 27, 2003 story he wrote, “Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, a one-time Democratic segregationist who helped fuel the rise of the modern conservative Republican Party in the South, died Thursday.

Then consider how he wrote about Byrd, the Democrat. “Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virgina, a fiery orator versed in the classics and a hard-charging power broker who steered billions of federal dollars to the state of his Depression-era upbringing, died Monday. He was 92.”

Readers would have been hard-pressed to find any reference to Byrd’s involvement with the KKK. It was buried in the 21st paragraph of the story.

Tim Graham, director of media analysis for Media Research Center, said the two stories represented a classic case of media bias.

“Over the years people have been aware that Senator Strom Thurmond and Senator Robert Byrd both had racist or segregationist pasts,” Graham told FOX News Radio.“You’ve seen this repeatedly over (the) decades that Thurmond’s past was always thrown in his face and  Byrd’s past was sort of left down the memory hole.”

Graham said there’s a pattern of the media dismissing or excusing Byrd’s involvement with the KKK.

“Both of these politicians changed their ways yet the coverage of Thurmond seems to imply that he never changed,” he said.

He added that the way the stories were written “illustrate the media’s mindset that they find alot of racism still lurking in the Republican Party and there’s none in the Democratic Party.”

And the average reader doesn’t notice the pattern, Graham said, unless they’ve been clipping out headlines from seven years ago.

Obama Can Shut Down Internet For 4-Months Under New Emergency Powers – (S.3480)

This should scare the Hell out of you!!  This is what they do in countries like Iran, Cuba, Venezuela etc etc.  Wake-up America. All they need to do is create a crisis, turn off the Internet, and steal the election(s)

Barack Hussein Obama is now one step closer to seizing control of the Internet, which is a far bigger prize than the reinstitution of the Fairness Doctrine. In fact, if the the Obama Regime gains this power, then they'll be able to follow suit with Talk Radio, and then have the same sort of iron-fisted control of media networks the Communist Chinese have. Just imagine an America where the Internet, which was invented here, were nothing more than a propaganda tool for the Obama regime!? Sadly, that became much more likely yesterday.

The so-called "Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act," which was approved by a U.S. Senate Committee this week, is nothing more than a "kill switch" for opposing viewpoints on the Internet. It paves the way for the nightmare scenarios which are currently just conspiracy theories to most. But if they have total control of the Internet, and they got it legally (in the eyes of most Americans, and let's face it, we are growing, but we aren't even close to a majority yet), via an act of Congress (however unconstitutionally, and yes, I realize this sort of executive power grab is absolutely, inherently unconstitutional), the Obama Regime (and the puppet masters behind it) will have the same sort of power that Woodrow Wilson had, but none of his relative restraint.

Without the Internet to express our views, and to communicate, network, and collaborate, we instantly become many fractured local movements, only as large as we have time to make phone calls and have money to send out snail mail (paper letters). It would mean that the Obama regime has all of the technology that was enabled by freedom and property rights, and the forces of freedom would be blown back into the pre-Internet era. Talk about a paradigm shift!
WE MUST NOT ALLOW THIS! Here's the excerpt from TechWorld:

Obama Internet kill switch plan approved by US Senate
President could get power to turn off Internet

‘Kill switch’ bill approved, moves to Senate floor

Obama Can Shut Down Internet For 4 Months Under New Emergency Powers 250610top2

President Obama will be handed the power to shut down the Internet for at least four months without Congressional oversight if the Senate votes for the infamous Internet ‘kill switch’ bill, which was approved by a key Senate committee yesterday and now moves to the floor.

The Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, which is being pushed hard by Senator Joe Lieberman, would hand absolute power to the federal government to close down networks, and block incoming Internet traffic from certain countries under a declared national emergency.

Despite the Center for Democracy and Technology and 23 other privacy and technology organizations sending letters to Lieberman and other backers of the bill expressing concerns that the legislation could be used to stifle free speech, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee passed in the bill in advance of a vote on the Senate floor.

In response to widespread criticism of the bill, language was added that would force the government to seek congressional approval to extend emergency measures beyond 120 days. Still, this would hand Obama the authority to shut down the Internet on a whim without Congressional oversight or approval for a period of no less than four months.

The Senators pushing the bill rejected the claim that the bill was a ‘kill switch’ for the Internet, not by denying that Obama would be given the authority to shut down the Internet as part of this legislation, but by arguing that he already had the power to do so.

They argued “That the President already had authority under the Communications Act to “cause the closing of any facility or station for wire communication” when there is a “state or threat of war”, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

Obama Can Shut Down Internet For 4 Months Under New Emergency Powers 150410banner1

Fears that the legislation is aimed at bringing the Internet under the regulatory power of the U.S. government in an offensive against free speech were heightened further on Sunday, when Lieberman revealed that the plan was to mimic China’s policies of policing the web with censorship and coercion.

“Right now China, the government, can disconnect parts of its Internet in case of war and we need to have that here too,” Lieberman told CNN’s Candy Crowley.

While media and public attention is overwhelmingly focused on the BP oil spill, the establishment is quietly preparing the framework that will allow Obama, or indeed any President who follows him, to bring down a technological iron curtain that will give the government a foot in the door on seizing complete control over the Internet.

As we have illustrated, fears surrounding cybersecurity have been hyped to mask the real agenda behind the bill, which is to strangle the runaway growth of alternative and independent media outlets which are exposing government atrocities, cover-ups and cronyism like never before.

Indeed, China uses similar rhetoric about the need to maintain “security” and combating cyber warfare by regulating the web, when in reality their entire program is focused around silencing anyone who criticizes the state.

The real agenda behind government control of the Internet has always been to strangle and suffocate independent media outlets who are now competing with and even displacing establishment press organs, with websites like the Drudge Report now attracting more traffic than many large newspapers combined. As part of this war against independent media, the FTC recently proposing a “Drudge Tax” that would force independent media organizations to pay fees that would be used to fund mainstream newspapers.

Kill Switch Would Kill The Internet

It’s always a comforting feeling when the fascists tell you to relax. And that’s what Senator Joe Leiberman (I-Conn.) told everyone to do Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley.

Crowley asked about the Kill Switch bill Leiberman co-sponsors with Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) that would allow the President to shut down the Internet in a time of emergency.

The President will never take over the Internet, Leiberman—with a warm smile—assured the audience. The government shouldn’t take over the internet. The president would only do that in catastrophic times. Not going to do it every day. It’s only for national security. Relax.

“Right now China—the government—can disconnect parts of its Internet in a case of war. We need to have the ability to do that, too,” Leiberman said.

Of course, in China the government runs over its people with tanks. It drags them off to prisons without trial for practicing Christianity or saying something government doesn’t like, where they disappear forever—probably with a bullet in the brain. I wonder if Lieberman thinks our government should have those abilities as well.

China also censors the Internet—every day—to stifle the free flow of information… because it can.

The worry for Leiberman and his fascist buddies—the elected elitists who march to the orders of the New World Order—is not what would happen to America if some outside entity launched a cyber attack on the United States.

The worry is that the Internet has opened up a treasure trove of information and an ability to share ideas with freedom-loving people all over the world. No longer is the main stream media the sole purveyor of information.

So that information can no longer be controlled. More and more people are learning the truth about government and the secret machinations that go one behind the scenes. They are learning about the corporatists that pull the strings. They are learning about the Bilderbergers and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Trilateral Commission. They are waking up.

CFR member and Bilderberger Zbigniew Brzezinski recently lamented that people are becoming more aware of what’s going on in the world than ever before, and this awareness is harming their agenda.

So the U.S. government is gearing up for a crackdown on the information flow—or at least to have that ability when needed. Ignorant people, after all, are easier to control.

You may remember the protests in Iran a few months ago. The government there shut down the press. There was a complete information blackout throughout traditional media.

But we saw the atrocities that were taking place there—the shootings, the beatings, the imprisonments of the opposition—because of Facebook and Twitter. Despite the government’s best efforts to control the information coming out of Iran, the world knew the truth because of the Internet.

And protestors were able to organize large crowds in central locations and avoid the state police forces because they were able to communicate via the internet after other communications were shut down.

Not ready to think your government might be no better that Iran’s? Then surely you’ll consider that such a bill allowing control of the Internet would be used to monitor your Internet usage so it can be taxed… so web sites opposing the Big Government’s message can be better monitored and shut down.

The Federal Trade Commission recently proposed a plan—called a Drudge Tax—to tax websites and electronic devices in order to bail out failing newspapers—the propaganda rags of the ruling class. And since that didn’t fly with the masses the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) now says it wants to control prices and set rules for what traffic Internet Service Providers (ISPs) must carry.

Censor the Internet? That would never happen here, would it Senator Leiberman?

No, he smiles and chuckles at the foolishness of the little people. Relax. National security and all.

The First Amendment Does Not Apply to News that Irks Obama

NASA reports that galaxies are speeding away from earth at
90,000 miles a second. What do you suppose they know that we don't?



U.S. Government on Twitter

Congressman Cantor said earlier this week that the DISCLOSE Act is a Blatant Attempt To Sway the November Election…  If that is the case this the act could be the final death nail in stealing that election as well as what is left of our freedoms.   Wake-up America! When do we say this is enough? 

I watched half of the John Adams mini-series tonight and found tears running down my face through most of it… like you do when you attend a memorial service.  Please make sure you rent or buy it and sit down and watch it with your kids or grandkids (explaining things between the 7-episodes) on or before the 4th of July.  I kept thinking what would they have said and done… you can bet not just sit here and let it happen!!
