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.”

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 .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Letter: ‘I Cannot Continue To Pretend Or Deceive The Members Of Our Community’

 

 

 

 

” Just days after the U.S. Department of Justice announced the results of an investigation into the Albuquerque Police Department, three members of the Police Oversight Commission are quitting.

  In their resignation letters to Mayor Richard Berry, Richard Shine, Jennifer Barela and Jonathan Siegel said they’re resigning because the civilian commission has no teeth.

“ The city attorney’s office addressed the POC on April 10, 2014, and stated that we have no power to decide against the APD Chief or against the independent review officer’s findings regarding citizens’ complaints,” reads Siegel’s letter. “I cannot continue to pretend or deceive the members of our community into believing that our city has any real civilian oversight.”

FBI Uncovers Al-Qaeda Plot To Just Sit Back And Enjoy Collapse Of United States

 

Islamist Slacker

 

 

 

” Putting the nation on alert against what it has described as a “highly credible terrorist threat,” the FBI announced today that it has uncovered a plot by members of al-Qaeda to sit back and enjoy themselves while the United States collapses of its own accord.

  Multiple intelligence agencies confirmed that the militant Islamist organization and its numerous affiliates intend to carry out a massive, coordinated plan to stand aside and watch America’s increasingly rapid decline, with terrorist operatives across the globe reportedly mobilizing to take it easy, relax, and savor the spectacle as it unfolds.

“ We have intercepted electronic communication indicating that al-Qaeda members are actively plotting to stay out of the way while America as we know it gradually crumbles under the weight of its own self-inflicted debt and disrepair,” FBI Deputy Director Mark F. Giuliano told the assembled press corps. “If this plan succeeds, it will leave behind a nation with a completely dysfunctional economy, collapsing infrastructure, and a catastrophic health crisis afflicting millions across the nation. We want to emphasize that this danger is very real.”

“ And unfortunately, based on information we have from intelligence assets on the ground, this plot is already well under way,” he added.”

Why Police Recover More Guns In Chicago Than Any Other City

 

th (1)

 

 

” It’s not news that Chicago has a gun problem. But that doesn’t make it any more palatable for Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, a firm believer in systems management and improved gun laws as he works to reduce crime in the city.

“ We recover more guns than any city in the country every single year,” McCarthy said.

  McCarthy, who took over as head of the Chicago Police Department in 2011, by way of the New York and Newark, N.J., Police Departments, is confident that state laws and enforcement efforts directly correlated to lowered crime in those cities.

  Specifically New York, he says, has five laws, which Illinois doesn’t, that reduced gun seizures, gun arrests, murders and incarceration.”

  McCarthy is a Tool who does nothing but blame guns for his and the city government’s failure to bring any kind of order to Chicago. Read more here

What Is Social Justice?

 

 

 

 

Published on Mar 24, 2014

” Social Justice” is a term you hear almost every day. But did you ever hear anybody define what it actually means? Jonah Goldberg of the American Enterprise Institute tries to pin this catchall phrase to the wall. In doing so, he exposes the not-so-hidden agenda of those who use it. What sounds so caring and noble turns out to be something very different.

23 Global Warming & Climate Change Stories All Americans Should Read Before Earth Day

 

 

al-gore-global-warming-hoax1

 

 

 

 

” The following are 23 news stories from a variety of sources that everyone should consider before the avalanche of “go green” stories that will be unveiled on Earth Day – in the media and in our kids’ schools.

  Whether or not one wants to promote the perfectly fine goal of fostering a better environment and leaving a cleaner planet for one’s children, that should not be carried out on the basis of disinformation, hysteria, or hidden political agendas.

1. Humans are NOT to Blame for Global Warming, Says Greenpeace Co-founder… (Daily Mail)

“ There is no scientific proof of man-made global warming and a hotter earth would be ‘beneficial for humans and the majority of other species’, according to a founding member of environmental campaign group Greenpeace. The assertion was made by Canadian ecologist Patrick Moore, a member of Greenpeace from 1971 to 1986, to U.S senators on Tuesday.”

2. James Hansen Admits Global Temperature Standstill Is Real(The GWPF)

“ According to Hansen et al. the Nasa Giss database has 2012 as the ninth warmest year on record, although statistically indistinguishable from the last 12 years, at least. Noaa says it’s the tenth warmest year. The difference is irrelevant.”

Obama Administration Land Grab Memo Leaked

 

Outlook-US_Map-Basic-Numbered-DRKER_sm

 

 

 

” Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s decades-long battle against the federal government over grazing rights continues, but it may get worse over a leaked memo that was uncovered in 2010 that reveals an Obama Administration land grab initiative that may spread across other western states, possibly causing the same showdown between landowners, ranchers, and the federal government.

  The Tea Party Command Center on Saturday uncovered the lost news report where former Republican Senator Jim DeMint raised the alarm back in 2010 of a leaked memo about a planned, 10 million acre Western land grab by the Obama administration of 17 sites in 11 western states.

  The secret memo stamped, “Internal Draft – NOT FOR RELEASE” was leaked by a Department of Interior official to Utah Congressman Bob Bishop.

  The memo titled, “Prospective Conservation Designation: National Monument Designations under the Antiquities Act” proposes that many nationally significant landscapes are worthy of inclusion in the NLCS and if enacted, could very well set off another BLM and property owner standoffs.”

    This report , combined with the recent actions against Cliven Bundy and Kit Laney lend much credence to Ben Smith’s allegations that the Federal government is conspiring to bring about the conditions necessary to declare martial law .

Gripping Speech On Behalf Of Rancher: Which One Of Us Will Snipers Shoot?

 

 

 

 

 

 

” With tensions simmering in the standoff between Nevada rancherCliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management, a Bundy supporter wonders when federal agents are going to “fire the next shot heard around the world.”

  Speaking this week before a packed town hall meeting in Moapa, Nev., with Bundy looking on, the unidentified man offered a gripping account of the dangers residents face, demonstrating why the impasse remains a powder keg waiting to explode, according to a video of his remarks.

  Bundy has locked horns with the federal government because the rancher’s cattle are grazing on public land — the rights to which the family says has been handed down through generations. Now the Bureau of Land Management, insisting the “trespass cattle” have been allowed to graze illegally, is rounding up the livestock.”

Dublin On Two-And-A-Half Million Dollars A Day

 

Dublin On $2.5 Mil Day

”  A couple of weeks back, I remarked on the cost of President Obama’s day-trip to Brussels, accompanied by 900 flunkeys and a 45-car motorcade. In fairness to Obama, the President is a public official of the Government of the United States: I do believe he’s even mentioned in the Constitution. You will search that document in vain for any mention of the office of “First Lady” or “First Offspring”. Nevertheless:

  The documents reveal that taxpayers spent a total of at least $7,921,638.66 on the first lady’s trip. She departed for the Dublin tour on Air Force Two after accompanying the president on a meeting with Northern Ireland youth.

  So “Air Force Two” has to be on hand to get Mrs Obama, Sasha and Malia the one hundred miles from Belfast to Dublin. For the purposes of comparison, flying the entire Royal Family around for a year costs taxpayers £3,101,771 (that’s the Queen, princes, dukes, the lot). Three million quid plus change works out to about $5,194,347.37. In other words, for the cost of two days in Dublin with three members of the Obama family you can keep the entire House of Windsor in the air for a year.”

As usual , do yourself a favor and read it all

Michelle Obama Riverdances Through Dublin, Helps Rack Up $7,921,638.66 Vacation Tab For Taxpayers

Barack Obama, Michelle Obama

” When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations there are two primary challenges.  First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. And second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn.

  But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the Obamas have a disturbing lack of regard for taxpayer resources.

  Most recently, when reviewing the Obama family travel log, Judicial Watch recently obtained records from the U.S. Department of the Air Force and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security revealing that President Obama’s June 2013 trip to Belfast, Ireland, including a Dublin sightseeing side trip by Michelle Obama, her daughters, and her entourage, cost the taxpayers $7,921,638.66. (Per usual, and owing to the enormous public interest in Michelle Obama’s luxury travel, our discovery earned quite a bit of press coverage.)

Here’s the breakdown from the two agencies.

  •  According to the Department of Air Force documents, the flights to, from, and around Ireland for the June 17 – 19, 2013 trip totaled 33.6 hours at $228,288 an hour, which comes to a flight expense alone of $7,670,476.80  (These records came in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information lawsuit filed on January 13, 2014.)
  •  According to the DHS documents, the total cost for “security and/or other services” for the Dublin side-trip by Michelle Obama and her entourage was $251,161.86, including $55,004.85 at the Shelbourne Hotel and $70,855.44 at the Westbury Hotel. Vehicle rental charges were $114,721. (These records also came in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information lawsuit filed on January 13, 2014.)

  Now I can hear the White House’s defense. This was a business trip. It’s all about diplomatic relations, etc., etc.  And while this might at times be true for the president, it is certainly not true for the other members of the First Family.”

7 Blockbuster Obamacare Charts That The White House Doesn’t Want America To See

 

 

” Remember all those promises that were made to sell Obamacare? Like lowering premiums for a family of 4 by $2,500 a year, allowing people to keep their plans and their doctors, not adding a dime to the deficit, and all of that?

  Well, let’s just see how much of a striking success”Obamacare” is based on the numbers so far. The Heritage Foundation created these charts based on the HHS’ own numbers, the CBO’s, and the Kaiser Family Foundation’s.”

 

 

1.Young People’s Premiums are Jacked Up

Premiums_Age27

 

 

” If you’re a young person, you’re pretty much screwed. Not only will you be paying higher premiums to subsidize your elders, you will be paying more taxes over your lifetime to pay back the loans we’re accruing just to pay for this boondoggle. You’re welcome, right?”

 

 

 

      Here’s one more sample for the reader and make note of the one time dip in the rate of the tax increases this year . The cynic in us can’t help but make note of the fact that this solitary dip coincides with some very important congressional elections , mere happenstance ? We think not .

 

 

 

3. New Taxes for Everybody!

Hoping For Asylum, Migrants Strain U.S. Border

 

 

BORDER-jumbo-master1050

 

 

 

 

” Border Patrol agents in olive uniforms stood in broad daylight on the banks of the Rio Grande, while on the Mexican side smugglers pulled up in vans and unloaded illegal migrants.

  The agents were clearly visible on that recent afternoon, but the migrants were undeterred. Mainly women and children, 45 in all, they crossed the narrow river on the smugglers’ rafts, scrambled up the bluff and turned themselves in, signaling a growing challenge for the immigration authorities.

  After six years of steep declines across the Southwest, illegal crossings have soared in South Texas while remaining low elsewhere. The Border Patrol made more than 90,700 apprehensions in the Rio Grande Valley in the past six months, a 69 percent increase over last year.

  The migrants are no longer primarily Mexican laborers. Instead they are Central Americans, including many families with small children and youngsters without their parents, who risk a danger-filled journey across Mexico. Driven out by deepening poverty but also by rampant gang violence, increasing numbers of migrants caught here seek asylum, setting off lengthy legal procedures to determine whether they qualify.

  The new migrant flow, largely from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, is straining resources and confounding Obama administration security strategies that work effectively in other regions. It is further complicating President Obama’s uphill push on immigration, fueling Republican arguments for more border security before any overhaul.

  With detention facilities, asylum offices and immigration courts overwhelmed, enough migrants have been released temporarily in the United States that back home in Central America people have heard that those who make it to American soil have a good chance of staying.”

SECURE THE F***ING BORDER !!

   NY Times … Of course this wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact that virtually no one gets sent back under Obama’s Border patrol policies or the impending immigration reform bill amnesty . Nah , only a cynic would think like that .

GOP Rejoices As Sebelius Goes, Says Obamacare Must Follow

 

So Long Sebelius Tweet

 

 

” Republicans and conservatives cheered the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Thursday, but many charge that the best cure for the beleaguered Obamacare program that debuted during her tenure is total repeal.

“vSecretary Sebelius oversaw a disastrous rollout of Obamacare, but anyone can see that there are more problems on the way,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement. “The next HHS secretary will inherit a mess: Americans facing rising costs, families losing their doctors, and an economy weighed down by intrusive regulations.

“vNo matter who is in charge of HHS, Obamacare will continue to be a disaster and will continue to hurt hard-working Americans,” Priebus added. “It’s time for President Obama to admit that Democrats’ signature law is a failure and heed Republican calls for patient-centered healthcare reform.”

  Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell noted that Sebelius’ departure comes nearly one year after key Obamacare architect and former Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, now U.S. Ambassador to China, described the healthcare law as “a train wreck.” “

Foundry’s Genevieve Wood Demolishes White House’s Wage Gap Argument

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” In a CNN appearance today, Genevieve Wood, senior contributor to The Foundry, blasted the White House for promoting the myth that women are paid significantly less than men because of their sex, rather than their career or life choices.

“ Instead of celebrating” that men and women with similar jobs and levels of education make around the same, “the White House wants to portray this ‘war on women,’” Wood said on The Lead.

“ Young women today in metropolitan areas, for example, who are childless, single, young women are actually outperforming males in that same category all over the country,” Wood said in her appearance with former White House communications director Anita Dunn. “But the problem with that is, they hear this kind of rhetoric that discourages young women.” “

Dems Blast Breitbart Over Pelosi Image

 

 

PELOSI TWERK

 

 

 

” The Democratic National Committee on Monday blasted Breitbart News for its portrayal of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in artwork promoting the launch of the company’s new California bureau.

  DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) called on Republicans to condemn the artwork and urge the conservative outlet to remove the ad, which superimposes Pelosi’s head on a bikini-clad body, with her tongue hanging out.

“ If GOP leaders are serious about their rebrand, then both their elected and Party leadership should condemn this outrageous behavior, call on Breitbart News to immediately remove the ad, and not continue to use this website as a forum for their views,” Wasserman Schultz said in a statement.”

  The image also showed several of Youngblood’s fellow residents at the East Neck Nursing Center in West Babylon looking on with a mix of shock and delight as the dancers bumped and ground for their amusement.”

  According to a report released Monday by the Tax Foundation, this year Tax Freedom Day falls 111 days into 2014, on April 21.

  By April 21, to group says, Americans will have made enough to pay the $3 trillion in federal taxes and $1.5 trillion in state taxes — more than they will spend on food clothing and housing combined.”

” Last week was “victory lap” week for liberals on Obamacare. After years of telling the American people that we just don’t understand the health law enough to love it properly, the president and his allies are now crowing that all debate should be over.

 Our readers have told us about Obamacare’s effects in their lives—hiking their insurance costs and canceling many of their plans. I guess Harry Reid thinks you guys made these up.”

Gun Control Fail: New York’s ‘Assault Weapon’ Registration Is Loudly Miss-Firing As Deadline Nears

”  April 15th, any New Yorker that owns an “assault weapon” is to have registered their gun, per the requirements of the New York SAFE act passed last year. But it’s looking more and more like a tiny percentage of New Yorkers are actually doing it.

  While the state of New York has not released actual firearms registration numbers, the rumors of registrations in the 3,000-5,000 range mean that 99% of those affected gun owners are refusing to comply with the law.

  Furthermore, gun manufacturers are already responding to the law by designing guns that carefully circumvent its specific requirements.”

Only 38.6% Of Jobs Added Under Obama Have Gone To Women

 

 

 

ADDED JOBS FOR WOMEN-CHART

 

 

” Since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009, the U.S. economy has employed an additional 3,590,000 people, but only 1,386,000 of those people—or 38.6 percent–have been women.

  At the same time, women represent 46.8 percent of the national civilian labor force. That means women are getting a smaller share of the jobs being added to the economy (38.6 percent) than their representation in the civilian labor force (46.8 percent).

  The percentage of the added jobs that have gone to women is even smaller if measured from the post-recession nadir of employment, which took place in December 2009. Since then, only 37.8 percent of the net additional jobs have gone to women.”

 

 

 

Compare those dismal numbers with the track record of that “known woman-hater” George W Bush …

 

 

 

” When President George W. Bush took office in January 2001, there were 137,778,000 people employed in the United States. Eight years later in January 2009, when Bush left office, there were 142,152,000. Of the 4,374,000 additional people employed during Bush’s full two terms, 1,518,000—or 34.7 percent—were men, and 2,855,000—or 65.3 percent—were women. “

” It’s finally happening: after waiting 20 long years Ford is bringing back the Ford Bronco for 2016 and it’s not the Early Bronco concept that was unveiled to the world in 2004 like many believed. This all-new Ford Bronco is based off the highly popular Ford Atlas and if history does indeed repeat itself, this could kick-start the 2-door 4×4 SUV market once again.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The fullsize Ford Bronco faded away after the 1996 model year never to be seen again; that is, until now. The 2016 Ford SVT Bronco isn’t a cookie cutter soccer mom all-wheel drive purse with a steering wheel, it’s a genuine off-road rig and its large size and menacing appearance make no apologies at all. The 2016 Ford SVT Bronco is all business all the time like its predecessors before it. This definitely isn’t the Ford Bronco concept you probably saw in 2004 and every year since then as the so called “new” Ford Bronco. “
