Rebellion Is Brewing Against The Political Elite That Has Ruined Europe

 

 

hqdefault

 

 

 

” The EU has always been at heart an elite project. It has been defined by rule from above, made deliberately unintelligible to the average citizen. Its first architects, having lived through the fascism of the Thirties and the horrors of the Second World War, indeed had excellent reasons for distrusting democracy and the popular will.

  This helps to explain the most unlikely feature of the European system: the absence of opposition. Next month’s elections will see a surge of support for anti-European parties, but for the most part they articulate national concerns and do not walk together. Mr Farage’s Ukip, for example will have nothing to do with Mme Le Pen’s National Front. There is no common anti-European agenda – which is an important reason why the established parties will continue to dominate the European Parliament after next month’s elections.”

TPP Raises Fears Of Global Internet Censoring

 

 

 

 

 

Published on Apr 22, 2014
Open internet groups are expressing concern over regulations that may be implemented as part of the yet to be signed Trans-Pacific Partnership. President Barack Obama is traveling to Japan later this week to work with negotiators, who critics say have worked in secret to include restrictive language requiring internet service providers to monitor and censor internet traffic. Dealing with enforcement of intellectual property rights, the controversial sections have garnered a strong backlash from digital rights organizations. RT’s Lindsay France discusses the concerns of these groups with Steve Anderson, executive director of OpenMedIa.”

Murder In Juarez

 

 

 

 

 

” David Farrington, a U.S. Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS) service agent, has been vexed by a troubling question for the past several years. He has reason to suspect a colleague deliberately failed to warn an American working at a U.S. consulate in Mexico that she was targeted for assassination by a drug cartel.

  Farrington, a former Marine and 10-year veteran of the State Department’s security service, was the first agent to get to the scene of the March 13, 2010, Juarez murders—another car carrying a consulate employee was attacked as well—and caught the case, as they say in police lingo. But his revulsion quickly turned to consternation, and then obsession, when he began asking questions about the whereabouts of the consulate’s chief security officer that day. Eventually, he was taken off the case, according to State Department emails obtained by Newsweek, relieved of his badge and gun, and ordered to undergo a psychological fitness review. But he hasn’t given up.”

 

 

 

Benghazi is not the only place where Hillary and Obama’s State Dept let Americans die …

 

 

 

Leslie Enriquez and her husband were gunned down as they drove away from a birthday party in the drug-and-violence-wracked border city of Juarez four years ago last month. Nearly simultaneously, another car leaving the party was sprayed with bullets, killing the husband of a Mexican employee of the U.S. consulate. A senior Mexican police official said later that a drug cartel enforcer who confessed to the murders claimed Enriquez was targeted because she was helping a rival gang with U.S. visas—an allegation denied by U.S. officials.”

 

 

 

The rot in Obama & Hillary’s State Dept knows no bounds …

 

 

” Documents show that the Juarez case was just one of a slew of episodes in which investigators charged that senior State Department officials deep-sixed investigations to protect careers or avoid scandal. In June 2013, CBS News aired a report by John Miller, a former FBI chief spokesman, based on an internal IG memo citing instances in which “investigations were influenced, manipulated or simply called off” by senior department officials. The most sensational case involved allegations that the American ambassador to Belgium routinely shook off his security detail to pursue sex with hookers and/or minor children in a city park. He was quietly replaced.

  Other cover-ups cited by Miller involved allegations that a diplomatic security agent in Beirut “engaged in sexual assaults’ on foreign nationals hired as embassy guards; that an “underground drug ring” in Baghdad may have supplied narcotics to State Department security contractors; and that agents in former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security detail “engaged prostitutes while on official trips in foreign countries”—a problem the IG report described as “endemic.”

Florida And Alaska Officially Pass Convention Of States Application

 

 

 

 

This video from Alabama CoS Explains The Process Very Well

 

 

 

” From sea to shining sea, the Convention of States movement is sweeping the nation.

  I’m pleased to announce that Florida and Alaska have both officially passed the Convention of States application to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

  The Alaska Senate passed the Convention of States application (HJR 22) on Saturday by a vote of 12-8, and the Florida House passed the Convention of States application (SM 476) yesterday by a voice vote.”

 

 

 

Story continues at Convention Of States where you can also get further information on this growing nationwide effort to rein in overarching Federal control . Below is a brief explanation of the process for those who desire to be better informed on the subject …

 

 

” Purpose: The Convention of States (COS) Project was founded by Citizens for Self Governance for the purpose of stopping the runaway power of the federal government. We believe Washington, D.C., is broken and will not fix itself. The federal government is spending this country into the ground, seizing power from the states and taking liberty from the people.

  We have a solution that is as big as the problem.

  Goal: The COS Project seeks to urge and empower state legislators to call a convention of states. The delegates at such a convention would have the power to propose amendments to the Constitution that would curb the abuses of the federal government. Article V of the Constitution gives them this power; the COS Project will give them an avenue through which they can use it.

  Plan: COS’s plan is twofold

  1. We want to call a convention for a particular subject rather than a particular amendment. Instead of calling a convention for a balanced budget amendment (though we are entirely supportive of such an amendment), we want to call a convention for the following purpose: Limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

  2. We believe the grassroots is the key to calling a successful convention. We would like to build a political operation in a minimum of 40 states, getting 100 people to volunteer in at least 75% of the state legislative districts. Only through the support of the American people will this project have a chance to succeed.”

Republicans Warn BLM Eyeing Land Grab Along Texas-Oklahoma Border

 

 

 

 

” Texas officials are raising alarm that the Bureau of Land Management, on the heels of its dust-up with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, might be eyeing a massive land grab in northern Texas.

  The under-the-radar issue has caught the attention of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who fired off a letter on Tuesday to BLM Director Neil Kornze saying the agency “appears to be threatening” the private property rights of “hard-working Texans.”

“ Decisions of this magnitude must not be made inside a bureaucratic black box,” wrote Abbott, also a Republican gubernatorial candidate.

 At issue are thousands of acres of land on the Texas side of the Red River, along the border between Texas and Oklahoma. Officials recently have raised concern that the BLM might be looking at claiming 90,000 acres of land as part of the public domain.

  The agency, though, argues that any land in question was long ago determined to be public property.”
 

 

    We reported on this story a week ago with this post as all eyes were on Nevada and now the story has reached the mainstream with the Texas attorney general’s warning to the BLM .

Statists Call For Drone Strike On Bundy Supporters

 

 

Lib Drone Strike

 

 

 

 

” As a federal appeals court rules that the Obama administration must divulge its legal basis for launching drone strikes against American citizens, many statists opposed to Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy’s stand against the government are calling for him and his supporters to be the victims of what would be America’s first domestic drone attack.

  Of course, it’s virtually inconceivable that the White House would launch a Predator drone strike against U.S. citizens, Harry Reid’s “domestic terrorist” slur not withstanding, but the mere fact that self-proclaimed liberals are openly calling for Bundy supporters to be massacred provides us with yet another chilling insight into the warped minds of statists.”

Obama Calls For Highest Sustained Taxation In U.S. History

 

 

 

 

 

 

” In the budget proposal he presented to Congress last month, President Barack Obama called for what would be the highest level of sustained taxation ever imposed on the American people, according to the analysis published last week by the Congressional Budget Office.

  Under Obama’s proposal, taxes would rise from 17.6 percent of Gross Domestic Product in 2014 to 19.2 percent in 2024. During the ten years from 2015 to 2024, federal taxation would average 18.7 percent GDP.

America has never been subjected to a ten-year stretch of taxation at that level.”

 

 

DEBT HELD BY PUBLIC-OBAMA BUDGET-CHART

 

 

 

” In the twelve fiscal years preceding the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor (1930 through 1941), federal taxation averaged 5.3 percent of GDP.

  In the five fiscal years encompassing U.S. involvement in World War II (1942 through 1946), federal taxation averaged 16.1 percent of GDP.

In the fiscal years since World War II (1947 through 2013), federal taxation has averaged 17.1 percent of GDP.”

Even Liberals Booed Pelosi Off Stage As She Defended Obama

” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was booed off stage last week—by liberals.

  Pelosi defended President Obama’s position on the NSA’s surveillance programs, and suggested that leaker Edward Snowden broke the law by whistleblowing. The congresswoman’s defense of spying was not well received.

“ People on the far right are saying ‘Oh, this is the fourth term of President Bush,’” Pelosi said. “Absolutely, positively not so.”

  Pelosi then advocated for a greater cooperation between security and privacy agencies.

  But the audience did not care for her rhetoric. Several audience members were removed from the room after objecting to Pelosi’s speech.”

Cattle Battle – Reid’s Latest Verbal Assault On Bundys – Allen West

Harry Reid’s Connection To Bundy Ranch Siege

 

ReidSearchlightLand

 

 

 

 

” As some may be aware, the Bundy Ranch in Nevada is having 500 plus head of free range cattle that have been fed on desert BLM land seized by the government. This is a long standing decades old dispute that pits the Bundy family, who have ranched this land since the 1870s, against a literal army of BLM SWAT forces supposedly there to protect desert tortoises.

  Our purpose here is to show how this siege must all eventually be linked to Senator Harry Reid, who literally controls everything that happens in Nevada. I wrote the only biography of Harry Reid (more below) which goes into his history of shady land dealings and use of the BLM. The best leverage the Bundys have is not against the BLM, but by making corrupt Harry Reid the focus of media attention. Because this is breaking, I will be updating this page continuously as I put information together, lots more to come.”

 

 

This webpage is loaded with research regarding Dingy Harry Reid and a host of his shady associates . Here is a particularly interesting couple of paragraphs:

 

 

” Harry Reid ‘owns’ 200 acres in Searchlight, all old BLM mining patent deeds inherited from his miner dad, all filled with desert Tortoise. His home is surrounded by the 14 abandoned mines that he owns�old sites with names like Spotted Horse, Diamond Wedge, and Cyrus Noble (so named after it was swapped for a bottle of Cyrus Noble whiskey). The question is why does he have ancestral claim to this land while the Bundys do not to their grazing rights?
  Reid’s claim to that land are mining patents, dependent on BLM favouritism since he no longer mines anything. Maybe he should be evicted, since his claims rest on old mining law from 1872. A patent is a parcel of claimed mineral-rich public land which the federal government sells to the claim holder for $2.50 or $5.00 per acre, as required by the 1872 Mining Law. A patent, or patented claim, is no longer public land; both the land and the minerals contained in it become the property of the patent holder. Congress has imposed a moratorium on new mining patents since October 1, 1994. Reid bought much of the land in 1973.”

 

See for yourself here . It’s all about the benjamins , Reid’s benjamins .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What’s Next For The Bundys?

 

 

fedsbundy

 

 

 

” The federal response will definitely come.  It will likely be in three areas; two of which don’t involve the Bundys specifically.  First, a multi-faceted attack will be made on the Bundys; second, a broad-front regulatory response against other land users will be made for the purpose of retaliation against the whole group and as a deterrent; and third, new provocateur deployments will probably be made across the West into similar situations.

  The attack on the Bundys will be planned to be large enough so as to not fail since precedents are being considered by the feds.  To give an historical example, the precedent of voluntary militias forming in the nineties as a constitutional concept in lieu of standing armies was effectively derailed for twenty years when the whole movement was painted as obscene by multiple federal law enforcement agencies intensely targeting them, or anything that looked like them, while prosecuting a P.R. campaign in conjunction with the sycophant mass media in the wake of the provocateured Oklahoma City fiasco.

  There is the possibility that doors will be smashed down in the darkness of early morning raids for all the Bundy family members, supporters, and ranch hands. There is the possibility that plants are feigning inside knowledge at this very moment and are seated with prosecutors scrolling through video and pointing out participants and ascribing statements or actions to them. Such violent raids on houses and places of business targeting these designated domestic terrorists represent one possibility. If that happens, it probably won’t be immediate. The following factors all affect the time-line for the response which I estimate to be in about three weeks, give or take a week or two.”

 

Our guess is bloodshed , as the Feds are sure to feel the need to make an example so as to: “Pour encourager les autres”

S.E. Cupp: Michael Bloomberg Is ‘The Best, And By That, I Mean The Worst Face For Gun Control’

 

 

 

 

 

” Conservative commentator S.E. Cupp had some tough words for former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the wake of him giving $50 million to push his gun control agenda.

  Appearing as a guest on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, the CNN Crossfire co-host mocked Bloomberg’s efforts: “Well, he’s the best, and by that, I mean the worst face for gun control. And believe me, my friends at NRA high-fived when they heard about this.

  Prior to the segment on Bloomberg’s gun control agenda, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos hosted former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens to lobby for gun control. Stevens proposed a constitutional amendment in which the Second Amendment would read “The right of the people to keep and bear arms when serving in the militia should not be infringed.”

  Following the Stevens promotional segment, ABC’s Jeff Zeleny proclaimed that Michael Bloomberg was “absolutely not” the right face for gun control before arguing “That’s the exact question because during the Senate debate on this, in the months after Sandy Hook, everybody thought that some sort of background checks would pass the Senate. But it’s too easy for politicians out there to say that’s the New York City Mayor.”

After Zeleny’s repudiation of Bloomberg’s efforts, Cupp continued to dismantle Bloomberg:

  Going after the NRA is a very odd thing. The NRA represents law-abiding gun owners, like myself, they don’t represent criminals. They don’t event represent gun manufacturers. So why Mayor Bloomberg is turning his figurative guns on people like me when there are criminals out there seems a very strange way to go about reducing gun crime. His efforts on this issue have been measurable failures. “

Dems Won’t Support Cuomo For President In 2016

 

No Mo' Cuomos!

 

 

” Gov. Cuomo, long known for his presidential aspirations, won’t enjoy the support of his own Democratic Party if Hillary Rodham Clinton decides not to run for president in 2016, top state Democrats have told The Post.

  The Democrats said Cuomo’s worsening relations with his party have led many to look elsewhere for a presidential standard bearer, should Clinton not run.

  He has had issues almost daily in recent weeks with Mayor de Blasio, top union leaders, the Working Families Party, former state Chairmen Jay Jacobs and John Sullivan, and key party leaders including state Democratic Co-Chair Stephanie Miner, who resigned abruptly last week.”

War On Free Speech: Starkville, Mississippi Aldermen Want Twitter Parodist Arrested

” The War on Free Speech marches into Starkville, Mississippi, where police are seeking the master criminals who lampooned Starkville Aldermen David Little and Ben Carver using the Twitter accounts @DavidLittleBOA and @BenCarverPray.

The Daily Dolt notes:

  The two aldermen came under fire recently after instigating the removal of Starkville’s highly popular Chief Administration Officer Lynn Spruill without providing any reason for the coup other than Carver’s comment that he “prayed” about it and God told him to kick her to the curb (hence the parody handle @BenCarverPrays).”

Trouble For Democrats: More Senate Seats Are At Risk

senate

 

 

 

” Democrats are finding that their path to keeping control of the U.S. Senate this year is getting bumpier.

  At least four states where Democrats hold Senate seats that once were seen as fairly safe are now considered in play: Michigan, Iowa, Colorado and New Hampshire.

  They join seven states with Democratic incumbents where analysts see decent bets for Republican pickups: Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Montana, North Carolina, South Dakota and West Virginia. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney carried all seven in 2012.

  The new four are now battlegrounds for the same reasons that plague Democrats elsewhere. The Affordable Care Act is detested in many circles. Anyone associated with Washington is often toxic. And popular Republicans who are running for other offices are often on the ballot.”

” Actions may speak louder than words, but Sen. Richard Blumenthal took that mentality to the extreme on Friday.

  The Connecticut Democrat was standing behind Milford Mayor Ben Blake on the town’s Metro-North station platform as the two held a press conference on railway safety. Complete with easels and charts, Blake was laying out the MTA’s safety violations, which total 139 over the last 10 years, worth $552,000 in fines.

Safety, as you know, is paramount,” Blake said — and then this happened.”

Western Lawmakers Gather In Utah To Talk Federal Land Takeover

 

federal-land-map-1024x8411

 

 

” It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday.

  More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds.

” It’s simply time,” said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. “The urgency is now.” “

Federal Lands

” Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including her counterparts from Idaho and Montana, during a press conference after the daylong closed-door summit. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee addressed the group over lunch, Ivory said. New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Wyoming, Oregon and Washington also were represented.

  The summit was in the works before this month’s tense standoff between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management over cattle grazing, Lockhart said.

” What’s happened in Nevada is really just a symptom of a much larger problem,” Lockhart said.

Fielder, who described herself as “just a person who lives in the woods,” said federal land management is hamstrung by bad policies, politicized science and severe federal budget cuts.

“Those of us who live in the rural areas know how to take care of lands,” Fielder said, who lives in the northwestern Montana town of Thompson Falls.”
