Sen. Rand Paul’s government reckoning.

Per Rand Paul:

And while I have received a classified briefing on the extent of the spying, I can’t share with you the exact size and scope of the undercutting of our right to privacy, but believe me, it extends beyond your wildest imagination.

So I hope you’ll take a few moments to read Judge Napolitano’s op-ed below.

 

Sen. Rand Paul’s government reckoning

By Andrew Napolitano

Gazillions. That’s the number of times that the federal government has spied on Americans since Sept. 11, 2001, through the use of drones, legal search warrants, illegal search warrants, federal agent-written search warrants, and just plain government spying. This is according to Sen. Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican, who, when he asked the government to tell him what it was doing to violate our privacy, was given a briefing that was classified. The senator — one of just a few in the U.S. Senate who believes that the Constitution means what it says — was required by federal law to agree not to reveal what spies and bureaucrats told him during the briefing in reply to his inquiries about the government’s violations of the right to privacy.

The rules for classified briefings of members of Congress on areas of government behavior that the government wants to keep from its employers — the American people — are a real Catch-22. Those rules allow representatives and senators to interrogate government officials about government behavior that they are afraid to reveal, and it requires those officials to answer honestly and completely, but the rules keep the interrogations secret and they expressly prohibit members of Congress from telling anyone what they have learned.

So Mr. Paul and his colleagues who joined in the secret briefing now know the terrible truth about the government watching us, but they cannot reveal what they know. Mr. Paul, who is the son of Rep. Ron Paul — the greatest congressional defender of limited government in our era — when asked what he learned at these secret briefings, and aware that he could be prosecuted for telling the truth, chose a fictional word to describe the vast number of violations of privacy at the hands of federal agents revealed to him in the briefings — gazillions. Mr. Paul’s personal courage in using a word like gazillions to convey an oblique message of truth in the face of an unjust law that commanded his silence reminded me of St. Thomas More’s silence in the face of an unjust law that commanded his assent to the king’s headship of the Church.

The feds are no more happy with the senator’s personal courage than the king was with St. Thomas More’s, but there is not much they can do about it. If you check out your dog-eared Webster’s Unabridged you will find that it does not list the word “gazillions” or any form of it. Yet most of us hearing or seeing that word understand it to mean some huge — perhaps even incalculable — number.

The point here is terrifying. If the government derives its powers from the consent of the governed, how can it do things to us for which we have never given consent? And when it does these things — like send a drone over your back yard to learn who is coming to your Saturday barbeque or to see what fertilizer you are using in your vegetable garden or to take a peek into your living room or bedroom — and when the laws that the government has written prevent our elected representatives from telling us what it is doing, we are at the doorstep of tyranny. The government gave Mr. Paul the distinct impression that it was afraid of our exercise of our personal freedoms and thus it needs to watch us as we do so. This is the same government whose stated principal purpose is to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, and thus personal freedom.

What has become of the Jeffersonian value of the primacy of the individual over the government in a free society? How have we lost the American value that the government works for us, we don’t work for the government? What remains of the constitutionally-guaranteed right to be left alone?

The answer to these questions goes to the nature of human freedom and personal courage. Freedom lies in our hearts, but to survive it must do more than just lie there. Its essence is the exercise of unfettered choices and those we make address our perpetual yearning for truth. This is a natural process that — just like the muscles in our bodies — will atrophy if unused.

So, when the government scares us into the nonuse of freedom, we have only ourselves to blame when Big Brother comes calling. And when he does come, on his face there will be no smile.

OBAMA’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE – Sheriff Joe Arpaio Press Conference Part Duex

I am not a birther by nature.  It has taken a lot of compelling evidence to bring me around on this issue.   The question I have is, if these guys are full of shit, and I do not think they are, why won’t the MSM report on this ?  Is this not a big deal no matter what the truth is ?

It seems possible and logical and with enough compelling evidence that the sitting President of the United States is a fraud.

‘SHOCKING’ NEWS COMING ON OBAMA.

What startling revelations can we expect from the Posse this go around ?  And will anyone actually do anything about it ?

“From what you’re telling me,” Gillar said, “it sounds like the next press conference is going to be even more amazing than the last press conference back on March 1st.

“It will be,” Zullo responded. “The information … is going to be breathtaking when it’s released.”

BLACK HELICOPTERS AND SOF CONDUCTING EXERCISES IN FOUR AMERICAN CITIES.

Good evening my fellow serf’s.

Great day in the field today, and only time for a quick informative post.

It appears that U.S. and Foreign SOF (Special Operations Forces) are now conducting training exercises in four major U.S. Cities.   Now why would they be doing that ?  Some people are suggesting they are preparing for Martial Law.  With Barack’s fan fucking tastic Executive Order (see NDRP) and the state of the US Dollar (and Euro) it does demand paying attention.

Does the government know something we do not ? Is this routine training ? Seems every link and news story says a different story or reason why these training exercises are being conducted.  Terrorism Attack, Martial Law, Emergencies and also for building the Global SOF Partnership conference.

Why is the United States Military and Foreign Operations Forces doing this inside major American cities.  Hmmmmmmmmmm.

Here are a few links to entertain, er, educate you.

New Orleans

The New Orleans Police Department, along with 150 active duty U.S. troops, are currently engaging in what they describe as “military training” as black helicopters whizz around the city dropping bombs in the latest example of Americans being incrementally conditioned to accept a state of de facto martial law.

The training has been ongoing since January 27 and involves “the use of military helicopters flying after dark throughout the city,” according to an Associated Press report.

Denver

Special operation forces conduct landings, and maneuvers inside the downtown city limits of the mile high city

Los Angeles 

 The Los Angeles Police Department teamed with military special operation forces Wednesday evening to conduct multi-agency tactical exercises in the skies above downtown LA.

Tampa

“Special Operations members from the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force will work alongside SOF troops from other countries to ‘assault’ mock enemy positions and rescuing ‘hostages’ next to the convention center, both on land and in the bay,” ABC News in Tampa reported.

We know the military likes to do mockup training and strive to get to the closest terrain layout to what the objective is;  if it’s a mountainous terrain, they go to the mountains; if it’s a desert terrain, they use the desert; if they’re in a coastal terrain, they use the coast.  If it is an American City, they … wait, what ?

Apparently similar exercises have been seen in Miami and Boston.

Have a good night Serf’s.

Unplug, Educate Yourself, Prepare.

Alec Baldwin & Obama.

As much as I love Alec Baldwin as a talent (and Clooney) but I never realized how stupid they must be.  I mean, ignorant.   Stupid is too strong a word.  No, it isn’t.

If you have not heard Josh Tolley (one of the most exciting radio personalities to come onto the scene in years) dude is just smart smart smart.

RON PAUL ON GAY MARRIAGE.

Everyone seems to be jumping up and down as The Big ‘O’ says he is down with Gay Marriage (a position he has changed a number of times over the years).  The Media, Magazines and people everywhere are rejoicing … while Ron Paul for years has said the same thing.  Bottom line ?  If the State would just get out of the way on these NON ISSUES, we would not even be discussing it.

Vote on principle, not on politics.   Unplug, educate and prepare.

And after reading the following, what part of this plan could you possibly disagree with ? While Barack and Mitt give you nothing but rhetoric and no plan of action at all, Paul gives you a very detailed action plan.   Think about Serf’s.
