” The people are the rightful masters of both congresses and courts – not to overthrow the Constitution , but to overthrow the men who pervert it “
” For the past few weeks, as Scotland debated the wisdom of independence, Reuters has been asking Americans how they would feel about declaring independence today, not from the United Kingdom, but from the mother country they left England to create. The exact wording of the question was, “Do you support or oppose the idea of your state peacefully withdrawing from the United States of America and the federal government?”
It was hard to imagine many people would support secession.Forget the fact that the cautionary lesson of the Civil War is top of mind for many people as we commemorate its 150th anniversary;just in terms of dollars and cents, who in their right minds would give up all the money they’ve already paid into the Social Security and Medicare systems? Besides, most states get more back from the federal government than they put in.
Then the results came in. You can see them for yourself here, and you can filter them any way you want—by age, region, income, party affiliation, etc. Any way you slice it, the data are startlingly clear: Almost a quarter (24 percent) of those surveyed said they were strongly or provisionally inclined to leave the United States. and take their states with them. Given the polling sample — about 8,600 people so far—the online survey’s credibility interval (which is digital for “margin of error”) was only 1.2 percentage points, so there is no question that that is what they said.
Secession got more support from Republicans than Democrats, more from right- than left-leaning independents, more from younger than older people, more from lower- than higher-income brackets, more from high school than college grads. But there was a surprising amount of support in every group and region, especially the Rocky Mountain states, the Southwest and the old Confederacy, but also in places like Illinois and Kansas. And of the people who said they identified with the Tea Party, supporters of secession were actually in the majority, with 53 percent.”
” Fed up with constant delays and flight cancellations, disgruntled Pakistani passengers prevented a senior politician from boarding an airplane after he turned up at least two hours late for the flight.
A video posted online on Tuesday shows a group of passengers shouting ‘Shame on you’ as they blocked Rehman Malik, an influential former interior minister, from entering the plane and then chasing him back to the terminal building.
The plane, operated by state-run Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), eventually took off from the port city of Karachi for Islamabad without Malik on board. An airline spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment.
Another politician, Ramesh Kumar Wakwani, was also barred from boarding the aircraft after turning up late.”
” Sowing distrust and discord among Americans has served Barack Obama well politically during his 68 months in office. But now as the former community organizer faces ISIS and the worst foreign policy crisis of his ineffective presidential tenure, that distrust and division has circled around to bite its master.
After his nationally-televised address Wednesday and a tepid Friday fundraiser talk justifying his belated actions, a new poll reveals that a large majority of Americans says it lacks confidence he can accomplish his stated goals of beating the brutal new terror group that released a video of its beheading of a British citizen over the weekend.
Its not that Americans doubt the effectiveness of the American military.
Nor do they question the need to militarily confront the Islamic extremists that have seized large portions of Syria and Iraq, killing thousands and threatening to export their terror attacks to the U.S. and Europe. Indeed, previous polls showed a substantial majority calling for the Democrat to attack ISIS even as he blithely admitted he had no strategy.
The new NBC News/ Wall Street Journal/Annenberg Poll finds 62% of Americans support Obama taking action against ISIS.
But fully 68% of his countrymen say they have “very little” or “just some” confidence that Obama will achieve his newly-discovered strategic goals of degrading and defeating ISIS through bombing and an international coalition.
Perhaps worse, only slightly more than one-in-four (28%) have “a great deal” or “quite a bit” of confidence their president will achieve the murderous group’s demise.”
Rotherham Child-Sex Victim Confronts Her Alleged Abuser In The Street… But SHE Is Arrested By A Van Load Of Police
” A victim of Rotherham’s child sex abuse scandal confronted a man she says groomed her – but was left shocked when she was the one arrested.
The woman was shocked when she saw the man walking through the town’s centre on Friday and decided to challenge him over the allegations.
But she was tackled by two police officers and pushed up against a wall during her ‘thuggish’ arrest, a witness has said.
A damning report released last month detailed how 1,400 children were sexually exploited in the area over a 16-year period.
The Times reported that a woman whose case is being investigated by authorities – but has not yet been interviewed – was arrested after tackling a man she says groomed her when she was 15.
A witness accused the police of ‘acting like insensitive thugs’, telling the paper: ‘A police van came and six male officers piled out.
‘ Two of them dragged her away, handcuffed her, put her against a wall and then shoved her into the back of the van.’
South Yorkshire Police told today how they had been hoping to interview the woman in the weeks before the arrest, after they were told of the historic allegations by another organisation.
But they only realised that she was the woman they had been trying to speak to after her arrest, and have now released her on bail.”

” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, warning hospitals and doctors that “now is the time to prepare,” has issued a six-page Ebola “checklist” to help healthcare workers quickly determine if patients are infected.
While the CDC does not believe that there are new cases of Ebola in the United States, the assumption in the checklist is that it is only a matter of time before the virus hits home.
For example, one part reads: “Encourage healthcare personnel to use a ‘buddy system’ when caring for patients.” Another recommends a process to report cases to top officials: “
“ Illegal aliens in New York could score billions in Medicaid and college-tuition money — along with driver’s licenses, voting rights and even the ability to run for office — if Democrats win control of the state Senate in November, the Post has learned.
A little-known bill, dubbed “New York is Home,” would offer the most sweeping amnesty available anywhere in the country to nearly 3 million noncitizens living in the Empire State.
It would bar police from releasing any information about them to the feds, unless it involves a criminal warrant unrelated to their immigration status.
Under the proposed legislation, undocumented immigrants could also apply for professional licenses and serve on juries.
The plan hinges on Democrats — who now control both the governorship and the state Assembly — wresting control of the Senate from Republicans, who oppose immigration amnesty.”
From the text of the bill itself here is it’s stated purpose:
” PURPOSE: To establish New York State citizenship, regardless of immigration status, and providing certain rights and benefits to persons with such citizenship. “
As usual the co-sponsors of this proposed piece of legislation have absolutely no idea of the monetary implications to the taxpayers of the state they are sworn to represent . Buried at the very bottom of the bill is this important tidbit of information :
” FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined
LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined. “
Read the whole bill . It is not overly long , nor is it filled with an excess of legalese . The implications are plain for all to see .
Vote buying and pandering pure and simple … all to be paid for by the sweat and toil of the very people these shameful politicians are supposed to be representing . Read more at the NY Post
” More than a dozen cases of Enterovirus D68 have been confirmed in New York state, according to officials.
” EV-D68 is causing cases of severe respiratory illness … sometimes resulting in hospitalization, especially among children with asthma,” the NYS Department of Health said in a statement Friday.
Enteroviruses are quite common in September; the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 10 to 15 million people are infected by these viruses each year. But doctors believe this particular type of enterovirus, Enterovirus D68, is causing more serious problems than others have in years past.
As of September 11, more than 80 cases in six other states — Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky and Missouri — have been confirmed to be EV-D68, according to the CDC.
New York is the first state in the Northeast with confirmed cases.
On Thursday, media reports of kids flooding ERs in Alabama and Washington state spoke to the spread of the virus. Other states, including Michigan, Georgia, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Utah, are also investigating clusters of respiratory illnesses. Several have sent samples to the CDC for testing. “
The above report from CNN offers a glimpse into our future as the Federal government of our illustrious “illegal immigrant president” refuses to do the primary job that they are charged with … providing for the security of our CITIZENS . Does anyone else find it suspicious that the arrival of this new “sickness” just happens to coincide with the beginning of the school year ?
The article referenced below from the Inquisitr provides the reader with an overview of where a large number of the illegal alien children were transported by our sage rulers . You don’t suppose there is any relation here do you ?
” Illegal immigrant children have now been flown and bussed to all 50 states and the Virgin Islands. A new U.S. Health and Human Services report reveal unaccompanied children placement on a state-by-state basis. Many taxpayers did not even realize an Office of Refugee Settlement existed in our federal government until the illegal immigrants report was made public this week.
Illegal Immigrant Children State-by-Stage Placement
The statistics reflect placements from January 1 to July 7, 2014
State Number Released
New Hampshire 13
New Jersey 1,504
New Mexico 18
New York 3,347
North Carolina 1,191
North Dakota 4
Rhode Island 119
South Carolina 350
South Dakota 21
Virgin Islands 4
West Virginia 10
For those readers who might be skeptical of the connection between the introduction of Enterovirus D68 with the massive influx of unexamined illegals from south of the border we offer further reading:
As a parting thought consider this: If an illness can be accidentally introduced into our population as easily as this what is to prevent the Islamists from infecting a large number of “refugees” with something more deadly and with a longer incubation period into our society ? Home schooling anyone ?
We’ve all witnessed some of the horrific methods that the Jihadis are willing to stoop to in order to strike at the “infidel” but what happens if our children become the first casualties ?

” ORDER Breakthrough by James O’Keefe — Now out in Paperback! http://goo.gl/fgUuKO. In a Project Veritas investigation released Monday, James O’Keefe exposed the lack of security along our border with Canada. In the follow-up to the investigation that featured O’Keefe crossing the Rio Grande disguised as Osama bin Laden, the latest investigation illustrates the lack of border security by simulating a terrorist infiltration across Lake Erie and into Cleveland.”
” The U.S. public is coming around to the Republican position on immigration, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.
The survey found that 35 percent of Americans believe the Republican Party is better positioned to address immigration, as against 27 percent who think Democrats would do a better job. The December margins had favored Democrats 31 percent to 26 percent for Republicans.
Proposals to offer some 11 million illegal immigrants a pathway to citizenship are losing support considerably. Now, 53 percent are in favor with 45 percent opposed. In April, those in favor numbered 64 percent against 35 percent who were opposed.
Pollsters attribute the shift in public opinion to the influx of children who illegally crossed into the United States from Central America earlier this year. The GOP message has been that security on the border is lax and that a 2008 bipartisan law intended to discourage sex trafficking has had the unintended result of encouraging illegal migration and needs to be amended. “
Another NYPD Beating Caught on Tape, Another Victim Of Police Brutality Who Had To Face Charges, More Cops Investigated By Their Own
” Last month, nearly half a dozen police officers beat up Santiago Hernandez, according to Hernandez, who told a local ABC affiliate police asked and received permission to frisk him but got upset when he asked them after being found not to be carrying contraband what the stop was all about. That’s when Hernandez says police tried to arrest him, and then beat him “like a gang.” Via ABC 7:
[The officer] was telling me to put my hands behind my back, but ‘I’m like trying to understand what are you are arresting me for. Can you please tell me?'” Hernandez said.
Moments later, half-a-dozen officers arrived and appeared to pile-on. Hernandez said he was punched, kicked, beaten with nightsticks, and blasted with pepper spray. “
” Senators on Tuesday criticized federal programs that outfit police departments with military gear, saying they waste funds and sow mistrust between law enforcement and the communities they police.
At a hearing called to examine what critics call police militarization, members of the Senate’s homeland-security committee expressed deep skepticism toward some equipment used by local police departments.
The issue has gained new attention in the wake of the police response to protests in Ferguson, Mo., over the killing of an unarmed black teenager by police. The Obama administration is reviewing federal programs that equip local departments.
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) singled out a one-man police department in Michigan that she said had received 13 assault weapons. Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) criticized the 14,000 bayonets the Pentagon distributed to local law enforcement across the country for reasons he said he couldn’t fathom.
“Giving military-grade weapons to every police force and every officer comes with costs,” Ms. McCaskill said. “Officers dressed in military fatigues will not be viewed as partners in any community.” “

” After the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, the government called on police to become the eyes and ears of homeland security on America’s highways.
Local officers, county deputies and state troopers were encouraged to act more aggressively in searching for suspicious people, drugs and other contraband. The departments of Homeland Security and Justice spent millions on police training.
Behind the rise in seizures is a little-known cottage industry of private police-training firms that teach the techniques of “highway interdiction” to departments across the country.
One of those firms created a private intelligence network known as Black Asphalt Electronic Networking & Notification System that enabled police nationwide to share detailed reports about American motorists — criminals and the innocent alike — including their Social Security numbers, addresses and identifying tattoos, as well as hunches about which drivers to stop.”
” There’s a wonderful book, A Confederacy of Dunces, the title of which refers to an epigraph from Jonathan Swift‘s essay, “Thoughts on Various Subjects, Moral and Diverting“: “When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.” I was reminded of it this week when the confederacy of dunces both here and in Great Britain seems to have linked arms against the genius of Western civilization and the long-suffering middle class which has for so long sustained it.
Key players in the confederacy are perpetually offended feminists who find patriarchal tyranny lurking behind every pronoun and university library stack. This week we learned to our horror that in Rotherham, England over a 16-year period 1,400 children – mostly white girls — were raped by multiple Pakistani Moslem men and they were beaten, raped, abducted, drugged, threatened into compliance, and trafficked around Northern England. Worse, the situation was widely known to the police, the city council members, and countless child welfare workers, all of whom refused to do anything to bring the miscreants to justice and stop the abuse. The story has legs and reports are already coming in of similar stories in other towns and cities in England and elsewhere in Europe.
If you searched the usual feminist websites for the story as it broke you’d not have heard of it. Why? Quite obviously because “feminists” in the US and UK are like the old line Communists’ “useful idiot” pawns, set off to do battle with make-believe opponents on the basis of lies while their allies do far worse to them. The bureaucrats in Rotherham were, we are told, afraid to act because the pervasive worldview of multiculturalism has so paralyzed their brains that they feared being called “racists” if they took action to protect the girls.
To be sure, as Ciaran, the author of the above-linked piece, notes, “multiculturalism is a Moral Autoimmune disorder”:
A month or so ago I introduced the concept of Moral Autoimmune Disorders (MAIDs), a social strategy employed by free riders to turn cooperators’ altruistic punishment defense against themselves. In short, the free riders fool the cooperators into identifying their own group or even themselves as free riders, inducing them to direct their punishments upon themselves rather than the free riders. This gives the free riders free reign to exploit the assets and resources of the cooperators.
The Rotherham rape case provides a vivid example of just how effectively a MAIDs attack can be in suppressing a population’s instincts to self defense. When the political leaders on the left created the cult of multiculturalism to secure their own political advantage, and implemented both the carrot of “diversity” and the stick of “racism” to enforce it, they cast the native population of England as the moral transgressors, and fooled the English into seeing themselves as the free riders. So strong is the instinct to punish free riders in the English population that they not only refused to protect themselves, but they punished anyone who attempted to do so. “
” Chris Lollie, of St. Paul, Minnesota was tased infront of his children as he went to pick them up from school on January 31. He claims he was racially profiled as all he was doing was sitting down waiting to pick up his children when he was approached by the police, seemingly for no reason.
He was charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct and obstruction of the legal process but all charges were dismissed on July 31.
Lollie filmed the entire encounter, but his phone was taken by the officers as evidence. After charges were dropped his phone was returned and he promptly uploaded the video of him being attacked to YouTube. “
” Haunting images of local police officials using military-issued equipment to quell protests in Ferguson, Missouri, have raised new concerns about the Pentagon’s controversial program to equip local and state police departments with military surplus weaponry.
The program, now under White House review, has been plagued by messy bookkeeping, bureaucratic confusion and scores of missing weapons.”
” Fusion has learned that 184 state and local police departments have been suspended from the Pentagon’s “1033 program” for missing weapons or failure to comply with other guidelines. We uncovered a pattern of missing M14 and M16 assault rifles across the country, as well as instances of missing .45-caliber pistols, shotguns and 2 cases of missing Humvee vehicles.
” [The program] is obviously very sloppy, and it’s another reason that Congress needs to revisit this promptly,” said Tim Lynch, director of the CATO Institute’s project on criminal justice. “We don’t know where these weapons are going, whether they are really lost, or whether there is corruption involved.”
More troubling yet is the possibility that some of the missing weapons, which were given to local police departments as part of a decades’ old government program to equip cops for the wars on terrorism and drugs, are actually being sold on the black market, Lynch said.”

” Some homeowners in the Hamptons are puzzled and angry after finding recruitment pamphlets for the Ku Klux Klan at their homes.
As CBS 2’s Jennifer McLogan reported Tuesday, Fernando Alvarez said he found the fliers under his Hampton Bays door. His family was left wondering if they were targets of the hate group, or if the leafleting was random.
“ We were really shocked that … in this area we can have KKK,” Alvarez said.
Hampton Bays, the town of Southampton’s most populous hamlet, has 13,000 residents — 30 percent of whom are Hispanic.”
” Fewer African Americans say blacks and whites get along well today than felt that way in 2009, according to a new Pew Research Center/USA Today poll. From 2007 to 2009, the number of black respondents who said blacks and whites get along “very well” or “pretty well” increased seven percentage points, to 76 percent. But since 2009, the share of black respondents who had a positive view of race relations has dropped twelve points, to 64 percent. Similarly, white respondents who thought blacks and whites got along well increased three percentage points from 2007 to 2009, but decreased five percentage points from 2009 to 2014. “
