Despite Obama’s Pledge to Curb It, NSA Mass Surveillance Wins Rubber Stamp

This shouldn't surprise anyone:

In the face of congressional inaction, a federal court on Friday renewed an order allowing the government to collect phone records on virtually all calls within the United States.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court approved the Justice Department's request for another 90-day extension of the National Security Agency's controversial mass surveillance program, exposed publicly last summer by Edward Snowden and authorized under Section 215 of the post-9/11 Patriot Act. The spying authority is next set to expire on Dec. 5.
After all, we know that presidents lie. Pathological deception is the number one skill set for the position. So Obama the "peacenik" can assume war-making powers that would've made Johnson, Nixon, and even W the Conqueror green with envy.

So it's no big deal that Obama the constitutional scholar and leftist community organizer would expand citizen surveillance. And no one who reads this blog should be surprised that one agency of the central government would okay the acts of another federal agency.

The notion that voters have the final word, or that their elected representatives are answerable to the people are just illusions. It's all part of herding the people into the D.C. corral.

Catalans rally for independence referendum from Spain

The Scottish independence vote is firing up people all over the world. No matter how the vote goes, the old megastates will never be the same. Check out this massive demonstration in Catalonia (and don't miss the glorious pictures!).

Thousands of Catalans have rallied in Barcelona, Spain, demanding the right to hold a referendum on independence.

Participants, waving Catalan flags and wearing the flag's red and yellow colours, stood in a V-shape formation, indicating their desire for a vote.

Protesters were energised by Scotland's forthcoming independence referendum - and many also waved the Scottish flag.

Obama’s Breathtaking Expansion of a President’s Power To Make War

Now even Obama's supporters are questioning his assertion that he can launch a war without Congressional approval. And it's interesting how the housebroken right's only criticism of Obama's war plans is that they're not "big" enough - no mention is made of this latest assumption of war powers by the Chief Executive.

So while the right cheers on imperial power to make war, the left demands more imperial power to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. You know where this will lead, don't you? Eventually we'll have achieved the ideal of "one man, one vote."

U.S. threatened massive fine to force Yahoo to release data

How corrupt is the U.S. government? This corrupt:

The U.S. government threatened to fine Yahoo $250,000 a day in 2008 if it failed to comply with a broad demand to hand over user data that the company believed was unconstitutional, according to court documents unsealed Thursday that illuminate how federal officials forced American tech companies to participate in the NSA’s controversial PRISM program.

The documents, roughly 1,500 pages worth, outline a secret and ultimately unsuccessful legal battle by Yahoo to resist the government’s demands. The company’s loss required Yahoo to become one of the first companies to begin providing information to PRISM, a program that gave the National Security Agency extensive access to records of online communications by users of Yahoo and other U.S.-based technology firms.

“The released documents underscore how we had to fight every step of the way to challenge the U.S. Government’s surveillance efforts,” said company General Counsel Ron Bell in a Tumblr post published Thursday afternoon.

The program, which was discontinued in 2011, was first revealed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden last year, prompting intense backlash and a wrenching national debate over allegations of overreach in government surveillance.
And the defenders of the Empire, from the Lizard King to neo-neocon to The Other McCain, gnash their teeth at Snowden for being "unpatriotic."

The American fear-mongering machine is about to scare us back into war again

The best summary of Obama's executive decision to attack Iraq for the third time comes from the Onion:

Previewing tonight’s televised prime-time address to the nation, White House aides confirmed that President Obama will reassure Americans that the impending military campaign against ISIS will be the exact same type of open-ended, drawn-out conflict that they are used to. “The president recognizes that citizens may be uneasy about this operation, and that’s why he will use tonight’s speech to comfort the American public by reminding them that they have been through armed engagements without clear end dates or even concrete objectives plenty of times before, and that this case is no different,” said senior White House advisor Daniel Pfeiffer.
The Onion, which is supposed to be a satire site, nails it - Obama announced no strategy last night. He offered no timetable, no stated goal by which we could recognize victory, no indication how he intends to make the Iraqi armed forces do their job. There was nothing in his speech but "air strikes."

And all this because of a vague threat to the US? What threat? Here's what the experts tell us about the ISIS threat:

Did you know that the US government’s counterterrorism chief Matthew Olson said last week that there’s no “there’s no credible information” that the Islamic State (Isis) is planning an attack on America and that there’s “no indication at this point of a cell of foreign fighters operating in the United States”? Or that, as the Associated Press reported, “The FBI and Homeland Security Department say there are no specific or credible terror threats to the US homeland from the Islamic State militant group”?
Two American journalists get killed IN SYRIA, and public opinion does a 180 on another intervention? C'mon! There are far more dangerous places for Americans in the world. Here's one:

More Americans have been murdered in Mexico than in any other part of the world in the past decade.

According to an Agence France Press analysis of U.S. State Department figures, at least 648 American citizens were murdered in Mexico between October 2002 and December 2012. This represents more than 40 percent of the almost 1,600 American victims worldwide over the same period. ...

To put the number of American murders in Mexico in perspective, more U.S. citizens were murdered in Mexico than were killed in “terrorist action” around the world, according to the AFP. The analysis by the major newswire calculated those deaths at 300 since October 2002.
So when do we attack Mexico? I guess Hermann Goering was right:

“Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”

Free Scotland, Free New England!

No matter how the Scottish independence vote goes, things will never be the same. London is now in full panic mode, blubbering "Don't leave me, honey, I'll treat you better! Honest!" So even if the English Supremacists in Scotland win, Scotland will be granted considerably more autonomy, effectively turning the UK into a confederacy. That's still a win for decentralization.

And of course, folks on this side of the pond can't help but imagine how smaller, human-scaled political units would solve a lot of problems. From the Huffington Post, of all places:

Obama later staked his presidency on finding areas of common ground -- and failed. The U.S. is more bitterly divided today by political culture, ideology, and region than at any time since the Civil War.

Maybe it makes sense to divide America into one country that respects science and levies taxation to support public goods, and another country of Biblical literalism and hatred of government. The progressive states of the northeast, the upper Midwest, and west coast, which send a lot of net dollars to subsidize the government-hating heartland, would save a bundle, and could establish the policies that most of their citizens want.
Congress is gridlocked these days precisely because of the deep divisions between the Southern and Western Red States, and the Northeastern and Left-Coast Blues. Devolution will enable everyone to tackle their problems with policies the local population can support. Now that would be progress.

Thanks to Dutchy for the link!

Voters Strongly Oppose Obama's Amnesty Plan for Illegal Immigrants

That's not my headline - that's the conclusion of the analysts at Rasmussen regarding their latest poll results on illegal immigration:

Most voters oppose President Obama's reported plan to unilaterally grant amnesty to several million illegal immigrants and think Congress should challenge him in court if he goes ahead with it

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 62% of Likely U.S. Voters oppose the president granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants without the approval of Congress. Just 26% are in favor of Obama's plan, while 12% are undecided.

Only 24% think the president has the legal authority to grant amnesty to these illegal immigrants without Congress’ approval. Fifty-seven percent (57%) believe the president does not have the legal right to do so. Eighteen percent (18%) are undecided.
I wonder how leftists, who claim to uphold the sacredness of democracy and majority rule, will react to this? My bet is that they'll say a majority White electorate is undemocratic, and should be ignored. Just wait and see if I'm right.

Culture Trend? Government Now the Villain in Pop Teen Movies & Books

Back in the late 20th century, "government" was a force for good. Cinema portrayed it as the good guy who swooped in to save oppressed, angelic minorities from eeeeevil White Southerners. But lately, movies such as "The Giver," "Divergent," and "The Hunger Games" (my favorite!) portray big government as the oppressor, often a self-serving and brutal one. These movies are very popular with young people. Is the culture changing to favor political liberty?

Here are two recent headlines that reveal where these negative attitudes toward big government are coming from:

Suspects were brought to the 'point of death' during 'real torture' by CIA

US Officials: New War on ISIS Will Take Years

Torture and perpetual war. That's what props up Empires, folks. No wonder people are looking for an alternative.

Independence vote pulls ahead in Scotland

Now I'm getting excited. For the first time, a poll shows the pro-independence campaign ahead of the Unionists. From The Scotsman:

THE YES CAMPAIGN is ahead in the Scottish referendum battle for the first time, according to a poll, amid signs of infighting among senior figures backing the union.

The YouGov research for the Sunday Times found 51% supported independence, compared to 49% who wanted to remain in the UK.

The results are the latest evidence of a dramatic surge for the Yes Scotland campaign, which has seen the gap between the sides - once regularly in double digits - vanish in a matter of months.

The YouGov poll showed the Yes vote increasing by four points, while No dropped by the same number.
So when do WE get to vote?

Cameron to Scots: The bogeyman will get you if you secede!

Prime Minister David Cameron must REALLY be afraid the Scots will vote for self-determination. Not only is he resorting to scare tactics, but he's spouting pure nonsense in a clumsy attempt to frighten Scots into rejecting self-rule:

David Cameron today warned that Scotland would be more at risk from terrorism if it votes for independence.

The Prime Minister said the United Kingdom had the best security and intelligence services in the world to keep people safe.

He said the safety of staying together in a ‘very dangerous and insecure world’ was one of the ‘strongest arguments’ against separation.
Boy, is Cameron desperate! Where was the "best security and intelligence services in the world" when Muslim terrorists bombed the London subway, killing 52 and wounding 700? And don't forget - it was the British government that imported those murderers and then ignited their anger by invading Iraq.

And speaking of importing Muslim terrorists, let's not overlook small-scale terror committed by Muslim immigrants, who not only recently beheaded an elderly lady, but managed to murder a British soldier in broad daylight. Anyone who doesn't believe Muslim immigrants are a hostile and alien population should ask one of the 1,400 girls brutalized and exploited by Pakistani immigrants in Rotherham.

Scots should vote for independence just to separate themselves from lunatics like David Cameron.

Federal judge strikes down traditional marriage laws

Unlike authoritarian governments in Muslim and communist countries, the people of the States are sovereign in the United States of America. So what they enact into law is the final word - unless they get it wrong, and then a judge helps them get it right. It's kinda like how Abraham Lincoln had to, um, "guide" the Southern people to realize the true meaning of the Constitution their grandfathers had ratified.

The latest example of this is in Indiana and Wisconsin, where the people of the States were so obviously wrong, the panel of overseers UNANIMOUSLY agreed to strike down laws protecting traditional marriage:

A unanimous panel of federal judges in Chicago ruled Thursday that laws banning same-sex marriage in Indiana and Wisconsin are unconstitutional, becoming the third appeals court to rule that gay couples must be allowed to marry.

The lengthy, often sarcastic ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit said the states could not justify denying marriage to homosexuals, who it said are “among the most stigmatized, misunderstood and discriminated-against minorities in the history of the world.”

“The grounds advanced by Indiana and Wisconsin for their discriminatory policies are not only conjectural; they are totally implausible,” wrote Circuit Judge Richard Posner.
Certain reactionary types will protest that the people of the sovereign States never ceded authority over marriage to the central government, publicly admitting to an antiquated view of the Constitution. And housebroken conservatives will urge calm and remind their brethren of the importance of electing good conservatives who will appoint good judges.

The only problem is that Judge Posner was a Reagan appointee. Yes, Saint Ronald of Reagan, that great "conservative." Oh, and pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Kristol rides again!

Ugh. Despite a couple of years of growing public opposition to DC's perpetual wars, the National Security State is at it again, revving its engines in Iraq (again) and possibly Syria. The driving force is a bogeyman called ISIS, the latest reincarnation of Hitler determined to enslave us all. And Bill Kristol, who cheered and prodded the country into supporting W the Conqueror's invasion of Iraq, is behind Obama's conversion to the War Party.

So this is a good time to recall the evil ideology that birthed the entire Neocon agenda, from the bloody invasion of Iraq, to the Department of Homeland Security, to "indefinite detention" of American citizens under the National Defense Authorization Act:

When put in the context of Marxist dialectics, the neoconservative ideology quickly becomes a plucky mix of visionary revolution and bloodlust. Irving Kristol himself was once a member of the “Workers’ Party”—a Trotsky-influenced political group. In his Neoconservatism: The Autobiography of an Idea, Kristol admits to being “lucky to have been a young Trotskyite and I have not a single bitter memory.”

The original neoconservative was far from alone in his reverence for the man who died under Stalin’s ice pick. As neocon Seymour Martin Lipset once wrote, “the anti-Stalinists who became conservatives—including James Burnham, Whittaker Chambers, and Irving Kristol—the Right gained a political education and, in some cases, an injection of passion.” This passion includes, in that great Wilsonian phrase, “making the world safe for democracy.” Much like Trotsky’s quest to launch a socialist revolution in every corner of the planet, neocons today fight the same war. The only difference is that they crusade for liberal democracy—which in some ways is more debased and vile than outright communism.
It pains me to no end how housebroken conservatives will rally around these stealth leftists. Some people cannot let go of the lies that make them feel good.

Do the government schools work? Just ask them!

Wondrous news! Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools have narrowed the graduation rate between White and Black students. From the Observer:

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ high school graduation rate set a new high in 2014, while the gap between white and minority students continued to narrow, the district said Wednesday.

The district’s rate hit 85.2 percent this year, the fifth straight year of increases. That is up from 81 percent in 2013.

CMS has now increased its graduation rate by more than 15 percentage points over the last five years. More than half of the district’s high schools now have a graduation rate above 90 percent.
How was this educational miracle achieved? Simple: Starting with the class of 2013, CMS lowered its graduation requirements from 28 credits to 24. Brilliant, eh?

Whether it's race-norming or outright fraud, the government schools will use every dirty trick imaginable to create the illusion that its victims students receive a quality education, and that Blacks are catching up with Whites. How long will parents continue to believe them?

US Signs Agreement with Mexico to Protect Mexican Workers--Including Illegals

Americans just got stabbed in the back - again - by their handlers in DC. From CNSNews:

At a signing ceremony on Friday, the U.S. government, through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Mexican government to allow Mexican Nationals – regardless of immigration status – to “exercise their workplace rights.”

The MOU is consistent with the “core mission of this commission,” Mexican Ambassador to the United States Eduardo Medina Mora Icaza said, adding “that regardless of national origin or immigration status all workers have rights and there are processes to safeguard them.
Now it's official - the U.S. government has joined with Mexico, George Soros, Mark Zuckerberg, and the rest of the Billionaire Boys' Club against the American worker. What this means is that the central government will use the force of law to undermine and erase the rights of American citizens. This is a major step toward replacing trouble-making Americans, with all their notions of rights and heritage and such, with compliant, easily exploited foreigners.

That's a win for Big Business, Mexico, and Big Government. And what about American citizens, who are the big losers in this deal? It's "racist" to think about them, as this article makes clear:

A Texas catering business will pay the United States $26,400 for engaging in “citizenship-discrimination,” as part of a settlement with the Justice Department announced Tuesday.

Culinaire International unlawfully discriminated against employees based on their citizenship status, the Justice Department claimed, because it required non-citizen employees to provide extra proof of their right to work in the United States.

Culinaire has agreed to pay the United States $20,460 in civil penalties, receive training in anti-discrimination rules of the Immigration and Nationality Act, revise its work eligibility verification process, and create a $40,000 back pay fund for “potential economic victims.”
Yes, you read that right - anyone who tries to protect American jobs by weeding out illegal aliens will be punished. That story is a whack on the head to those who still don't believe DC is the enemy.

Immigration officials lost track of 6,000 foreign nationals in US

On Labor Day, Obama spoke to union members in Milwaukee, where he stressed his commitment to "immigrant rights." Apparently, he wasn't sufficiently pro-immigrant for one demonstrator, who confronted Obama with a sign that read "Shut Down ICE!" My initial reaction was anger - I mean, the nerve of this guy, sneaking into the country, blatantly breaking our laws, and now demanding that the rest of his country be allowed to come here and take advantage of us.

But then I saw this story, and it hit me that DC has pretty much given that brash demonstrator everything he wants - from the looks of things, border security is nothing more than a hindrance to a regime determined to import a new people:

The Department of Homeland Security has lost track of more than 6,000 foreign nationals who entered the United States on student visas, overstayed their welcome, and essentially vanished -- exploiting a security gap that was supposed to be fixed after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.

"My greatest concern is that they could be doing anything," said Peter Edge, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement official who oversees investigations into visa violators. "Some of them could be here to do us harm." ...

ABC News found that immigration officials have struggled to keep track of the rapidly increasing numbers of foreign students coming to the U.S. -- now in excess of one million each year. The immigration agency’s own figures show that 58,000 students overstayed their visas in the past year. Of those, 6,000 were referred to agents for follow-up because they were determined to be of heightened concern.
A regime that shows such little concern for the security of its people has lost all legitimacy.

The problem with Xinjiang is that it's full of Uighurs

What's the difference between conservatives and leftists? Conservatives know that ancestry and heritage determine culture. Leftists say that ancestry and heritage determine culture.

What they disagree on is whether the historic culture is something to be nourished or dismantled. Whether liberals or communists, all leftists know that heritage must be eradicated.

So Beijing now seeks to do away with those pesky, secession-minded Uighurs by offering incentives to encourage mixed marriages. From the Washington Post:

China is offering cash rewards for interracial marriages in its troubled Muslim-majority region of Xinjiang, according to news reports, mirroring a policy now being promoted in Tibet.

President Xi Jinping has responded to ethnic unrest in Xinjiang and Tibet with a familiar strategy: putting in place suffocating security controls and promising significant investment in development and infrastructure, the moves buttressed by the continued migration of China’s majority Han people into both regions.

But Xi has also shifted policy toward a concept of “inter-ethnic fusion,” according to James Leibold, an expert on China's ethnic policies who teaches at Melbourne’s La Trobe University. That is a move away from China’s long-standing idea of “separate but equal” ethnicities and toward a more American-style concept of a melting pot — or, in Xi’s own words, the binding together of China’s ethnic groups as tightly as the seeds in a pomegranate.

I don't know. When he's not featuring R-rated porn to boost his numbers on what he imagines is a "serious" political site, he's cheering on yet another war that he doesn't have to fight. Clearly desperate to get a job with a Neocon think tank, he eagerly smears those who oppose DC's agenda of perpetual war or who question US taxpayer subsidies to the Israeli government.

But Douglas' hit piece on William Lind is pure slime scraped from the bottom of a third-world sewer. Douglas not only maligns Lind, but tosses in links to other hit pieces that slander the South and Jefferson Davis.

And notice that those pieces he links to favorably mention the Southern Poverty Law Center and the ADL, two leftist hit squads. You know a man by the company he keeps.

As Scots Weigh Independence, Wales Takes Note

Nationalism, as Samuel Huntington once pointed out, is like a bent twig - at some point, it will snap back. In the megastate once known as the United Kingdom, nationalism is snapping back so forcefully, it's knocking some politicians off their feet. From the astounding growth of UKIP, which sell-out politicians and their tame media tried to ignore, to the resurgence of Scottish nationalism, the multi-cultural experiment is quickly collapsing. Now Welsh nationalists feel energized by the success of the Scottish National Party's independence referendum:

Less than a month before Scotland holds a referendum on whether to leave Britain, Wales is watching with a mix of envy, excitement and trepidation.

“If Scotland votes yes, the genie is out of the bottle,” said Leanne Wood, leader of Wales’s nationalist party Plaid Cymru. Only one in 10 Welsh voters supports independence, compared with about four in 10 in Scotland, but Ms. Wood thinks that could change. “The tectonic plates of the United Kingdom are shifting,” she said.
I'd say the genie will stay out of the bottle even if the SNP doesn't win next month. The dreary uniformity of multiculturalism simply cannot compete with the natural yearning to see one's own people and culture stake a claim in the future. No amount of name-calling will kill that desire.

What was fringe is becoming mainstream,ctd.

I remember all too well those days when people would look at me funny when I denounced DC as an empire. No, they'd say, this is a government of, by, and for THE PEOPLE.

But that was then. Now, in the wake of the USA Patriot Act, Ed Snowden's earth-shaking revelations, and DC's obvious plan to wage perpetual war and the public be damned, it's probably a majority that sees DC as an illegitimate and rogue conqueror. This article, aptly entitled "A Free Society Must Give Up Empire," lays out what we MUST do to stop this monster:

If Americans want a free society at home, then they must convince the U.S. government to give up its global empire. The militarized police recently on display in Ferguson was no freak coincidence: Antiwar activists and other civil libertarians have been warning for decades that an aggressive US foreign policy would eventually destroy domestic liberties. Americans can’t ask their government to subjugate foreigners with bombs but bow to their own wishes at the ballot box.
Hey, it's kinda neat being in the mainstream for a change.

What was fringe is becoming mainstream

We've been saying for some time now that as the government and its institutions are turned against us, we need to secede from those institutions. The government schools are a perfect place to start. This story reveals how North Carolinians are increasingly turning their backs on the governments Satanic mills:

North Carolina officials say there has been a huge increase over the past two years in the number of Tar Heel families who have pulled their kids out of public schools and begun educating them at home.

The number of homeschools has jumped 27 percent since the 2011-12 school year, reports.homeschoolhouse

As of last year, 98,172 North Carolinian children were homeschooled; that’s 2,400 students more than the number who attended a private school.

While the sputtering economy is the reason families are choosing homeschooling over private schooling, the nationalized learning experiment (Common Core) is the main reason families are leaving the public schools in the first place.

“Common Core is a big factor that I hear people talk about,” Beth Herbert, founder of Lighthouse Christian Homeschool Association, told “They’re not happy with the work their kids are coming home with. They’ve decided to take their children home.”
You may recall this video of a Common Core SUPPORTER admitting the agenda was anti-White:

Free Scotland!

With 20 days to go, the Scottish pro-independence movement is gaining momentum. This story highlights an important development that every independence movement must understand:

Earlier this year, Salmond, Scotland’s First Minister under the Edinburgh parliament’s current limited powers, said that Scotland would be becoming independent “in more promising circumstances than virtually any nation in history,” if it votes for secession. ...

On Thursday, 200 company heads signed an open letter to say independence was in Scotland’s “best interest.”

“We are involved in business and entrepreneurship at different levels in Scotland and around the world. We believe independence is in the best interests of Scotland’s economy and its people,” the letter reads.

Leading signatories are Sir Brian Souter, chairman of Stagecoach, an Australian-based transport giant, Jim McColl, chairman and CEO of Clyde Blowers, a £1 billion engineering group, and Ralph Topping, former CEO of bookmaker William Hill.
Yes, people will make economic sacrifices to preserve identity. And yes, there is also that all-too-human fear of change and the unknown. But economic disruptions must be minimized if people are to support secession. Alex Salmond, the head of the Scottish National Party, has figured that out.
