It’s the beginning of the election season for the President of the United States.  Where are we now compared to 7 years ago?

The economy has basically stabilized at low GDP growth 1-2.5% range.  The unemployment numbers are at 2009 levels, yet this seems clouded with out of the labor force numbers of nearly 94,000,000.  That’s a mighty big number, even if it were 1/4 that number 23,500,000 people, that’s huge!  Even 1/10th would be 9,400,000, very large indeed.  So employment is basically still terrible after 7 years.

After 7 years we’re pushed a media-propagandist driven agenda on a remarkable number of social ideologies which pitch one part of our citizens against another part of citizens furthering the division and divisiveness like we have never seen before.

Under the President he has either incorrectly judged or incorrectly decided foreign policy which has positioned America in a weaker position internationally.  Several of these situations include: Syria-Assad/Russia, Iraq-ISIS/L, Ukraine-Russia, Iran-Nuclear/Russia, Israel-Palestine, North Korea-South Korea, China-Currency Manipulation/Cyber Warfare.

Four years ago, we wrote an article which described 5 dominoes which may fall. While each area may have mutated from what was visible, these dominoes are real.  Take a look;  Another 4 Years, The Dominoes are Visible 

The Presidency is the toughest job in the world.  In fact, it’s become so complicated by special interests, by over-reaching authority that it’s stretched beyond it’s capability to operate with competency.  Look at the IRS scandal , as individuals extend their authority to harm citizens of opposing views and of course we hold no-one accountable !  We should be very afraid of this, consider the EPA, FCC, DOJ, DHS-TSA, BLM all of these alphabet soup agencies actually have very limited oversight, are fraught with such potential for agency abuse at the various leadership levels within each organization.  The abuse and potential yet to occur abuses have now outweighed the original usefulness of why the agencies was created in the first place!

This all suggests that less government, a constitutional based government is the only way to turn.   However, this is not and will not be reality unless the silent majority elects the right President, needed at precisely the right time, to pull back on government excesses, take control of fiscal responsibility, adheres to the rule of law and levels the playing field back in favor of the citizens and not special interest or the political elites!  November 2016 cannot come soon enough!

Fellow Americans we are watching the expedited erosion of our rights. bill-of-rights  We watched earlier this year as less than credible warrants were pushed through as several intrusions on the Associated Press (AP) and on a Fox News reporter James Rosen.  There was some media mention/noise, but like all good media outlets, they fell back in with the party-line message from this Administration.

The latest weak-ass warrant served August 6, 2013 on a Washington Times reporter, via a search warrant made on her husband for suspected “unregistered firearms”.  Of course the gestapo technique used by the Homeland Security officials included picking-up his wife’s notes and other files that she was making on a news investigative story she was writing.

So what was the reporter working on that had the Homeland Security so interested as to sideways access her life?  Well,  it seems she’d been doing some investigation of the… wait.. wait for it… the Homeland Security.   Yep, the very people that had deprived her of her Liberty and her First Amendment rights;  the very agency who is supposed to protect us from “Terrorists”.

Homeland SecurityIn a predawn raid her family home, reporter Audrey Hudson said the investigators, including an agent for Homeland’s Coast Guard service, took private notes and copies of government documents that she had obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.  Of the documents taken by these “Federal Agents” none of them were disclosed to Ms Hudson.   What was in the 5 files that concerned the Agency?

The warrant referenced no specific permission to seize reporting notes or files per the Washington Times.  The Times also said it is preparing legal action for unwarranted intrusion on the First Amendment and serious violations of Audrey Hudson’s Fourth Amendment rights as well.

Interestingly, Hudson’s husband has had no charges filed against him nearly three months later.  What’s that all about?  Oh yea- that’s not what they were looking for at that time.

3%20monkeysWhere’s the rest of the media on this?  SILENT.

As Americans, we can’t just stand idle while a new generation of leadership is taking advantage of the citizenry right in front of our faces.  Call Congress, post on Facebook about this case and others like it.

What’s next?  They coming for our blogs, our Facebook pages that don’t agree with them?  Our websites?   They coming after anything we have or say if we don’t agree with them?  Your thoughts?

On a raining evening in Sanford Florida on February 26, 2012 a 17 year old African American Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman.  The police arrived within two minutes of the shooting.  Zimmerman was taken into custody, treated for head injuries, then questioned for five hours.  The police chief said that Zimmerman was released for lack of evidence and lack of legal grounds for arrest and that Zimmerman had the right to defend himself with lethal force.

The media immediately lead by NBC news jumped race-baiting reporting by claiming an AfricanAmerican was gunned down by a white man.  NBC went as far as manipulating the 911 call and not showing photographs of George Zimmerman with blood on his face and back of his head.  When it was discovered that he was Hispanic, he was then called a “white-hispanic”.

The President of the United States pm March 23, 2012 made a statement “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”. 

Due to public pressure, George Zimmerman was arrested on April 11, 2012.   He was subsequently charged with 2nd Degree Murder and Manslaughter.

The trail took place between June 10, 2013 and July 13, 2013.  At the end of the trail, George Zimmerman was acquitted and found not guilty on all charges.

Since the verdict, there has continued controversy raised by Rev Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, NAACP and seem to make every effort to make this a race issue.   The NAACP is pressuring the Justice department to bring civicl rights violations against Zimmerman.

On July 19, 2013 the President issued another statement;

________________________

THIS COULD HAVE BEEN MY SON

This could have been my son, he could have been Trayvon too.  My son while raised in a middle class home, he became very rambunctious from about 16 to 20, he too smoked pot, drank and would have looked like Trayvon a lot.  I worried during these years that he didn’t end up in a ditch somewhere or shot due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time.   So I get the tragedy of a 17 year old being shot.

This could have been my son, he could have been George too.  My son is now much older, more mature has become what we’d consider now a good man.  He works hard, he lives in a neighborhood that has had its troubles with burglary, theft, vandalism.  So I could see him too doing his part to keep his neighborhood safe.

___________________________

A lot has been said about Trayvon’s rights.  It is a tragedy that he died that night.  From the testimony and case presented by the Special Prosecutor, the jury found Zimmerman Not-Guilty on all counts.  Our justice system has spoken.  But some of our political leaders, including our President think there is something more here.  Is our President incapable of supporting the due process that took place in Florida?   Did not George Zimmerman stand trial?

What about George’s rights?  George should have been “innocent until proven guilty”, but instead the media and this very President, convicted him prior to any facts being presented in this case.  What about Georges rights?  Is not this President and his Administration reaching beyond their authority to harass and vilify George Zimmerman by stoking this as a Racial Attack and now chasing civil rights violations when their very own FBI says Zimmerman isn’t a racist?  The case, including over 30 witnesses interviewed by the FBI proved that George was not a racist.  In fact, you would say he stood up for minorities, being a minority himself.  Read FBI Reports: Zimmernan not a racist

What about George’s rights?

Could you see yourself being overrun by a media and blood thirsty political group?

I could.

I’m watching the IRS hearings and find the lack of any responsibility by the leadership astounding.  These people receive a huge salary from the people of the United States, have taken an Oath of Office, yet IRS Abusethey don’t have a clue what’s going on, who’s in charge, who created the “inappropriate” questionnaires and ultimately stood by while many people in Cincinnati proceeded to violate the Constitution and people’s Civil Rights.

How can I get a job where I get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars, essentially I would be responsible for nothing, can fail in my job, can blame that it’s others but can’t remember any names?  AND keep my job!

We want these people to expand the government and be responsible for oversight of the Affordable HealthCare Act “ObamaCare”?

WAKE UP AMERICA, Apathy and incompetence reigns in our government.

Be afraid, very very afraid.

We’ve been hearing rumors about the IRS possibly being aggressive to conservative groups for nearly a year.  Since we no longer have mainstream media Free Press, but instead party leaning infomercial-news, this situation went on while the IG (Inspector General) was investigating for months leading up to the 2012 election.

On May 17, we hear from Mr Miller the head of the IRS, who had previously testified in front of Congress before 2013 that essentially all was well.   Today he was questioned as to why he didn’t, since he knew about the IG investigation, disclose the improprieties at the time of his testimony.  Mr. Miller’s explanation was that of someone hiding something, “I answered the questions asked” that’s what a lawyer tells a criminal when under oath.  Avoid the question by answering a preprepared answer and only answer as limited as possible to the question at hand.

As a citizen, as listed throughout the Constitution of the United States of America, I am more than appalled at how the government is conducting business.  I think the Representative from Pennsylvania has summarized this best.

Enclosed here is the IG’s report.  This is redacted which also concerns me, as we have not been given the entire report, so what’s missing?   IG Report-revised-redacted-1

For citizens to have been profiled into certain groups by name and then treated, by what appears from the IG’s report and limited testimony, beyond the scope necessary to issue tax status, appears to be civil rights violations and criminal.  For the government to restrict its citizens from exercising its lawful right as upheld by the Supreme Court in Citizens United, is criminal.

To assign this as low level employees tells me one of two things, 1) either the executive branch, management of departments and managers are incompetent (see Stretched Beyond its Limits: Executive Branch) or 2) that the executive branch, management of departments and managers are in fact competent and decided to manage the TeaParty, Conservative, Christian and Jewish groups in this specific manner.

Either answer is criminal.

As tax payers we work hard for our money, we get up go to work, manage our affairs to make money and we pay into a system anywhere from around 1%  upwards to 55% of our income in support of this very government that is restricting citizen rights.  We deserve better.  Our politicians need to focus on the running of the government they created, or we must insist you shut the parts down that you are incapable of properly managing.  And to the Appointed staff, long time government Executives, Management and Employees, we deserve better.  You are shafting your neighbors, family, communities and nation by not standing up and calling out these situations.

The President, if not then The Congress, if not then The Press should demand that a full accounting be conducted and the criminal behavior be charged where it has happened, that firings be conducted where appropriate, that organizational notice be given and that proper and lawful enforcement as needed in the collection of government money be established.  Our participation is “voluntary” thus far.  Else it is The Citizens which shall demand a change and that request would be final.

The hard working members of America are watching, do the right thing!

California is well known for its wonderful weather, ocean coastline, fantastic high sierras, wine, culture and progressive views about society, life and government.  But it seems that California also has a bad history with police abuse.

The nation all watched the beating of Rodney King on March 3, 1991.  Then the subsequent riots after four officers were acquitted of all charges.  Watch the beating caught on tape by a bystander with a video camera.

Well we now have yet another California police involved abuse of power, but this time it has resulted in thePolice State  death of a man, David Sal Silva in Bakersfield California.   Now there were two videos taken by bystanders.  I’d like to show you those videos, but apparently these were taken by the very police who allegedly beat this man to death.  Here is the 911 call by one of the bystanders names Sulina.

A second witness named Jason Land also gave a similar account of what he saw, saying “They beat that man ‘til they killed him, right in front my face.”  It seems that more and more Police overstep their authority and step on Citizen’s constitutional rights.   Below is a short list of cases and links;

Cotati Police force into a home

Sacramento California police remove child without a warrant

In the meantime, it’s not just the police we should be worried about, we are watching nearly daily abuse of IRS Abusepower across all levels of government.  The IRS using its power to deny TeaParty, Christian and other right leaning groups not for profit status and requesting information about the members in violation of the 1st Amendment.  The DOJ has seized two months of Associated Press and House member records, with what seems to be done without proper warrant, Grand Jury or FBI defined search powers for “terrorist” activities.

I am concerned as to the loss of liberty and rights as citizens in the USA.  We see first hand the desire of the progressives in this State and in Nation to want to disarm the citizens of our 2nd Amendment right.  But the worry is, once good citizens are disarmed, then only the criminals and police will have guns and sometimes we see that the police are often criminals too.

Who is assigned to watch the watchers?  It seems the press is even now under attack of their 1st Amendment rights, which is the citizenry’s protection from government abuses.  We must stand up and call out these abuses of power, even the ever so slight abuses.  For if we allow even the slightest, it leads to apathy and acceptance of further abuses and erosion of our constitutional rights.
