HUD destroying Suburbs

Affirmatively Destroying America's Neighborhoods In The War On Suburbia, Submitted by Tyler Durden, 7/29/15 Submitted by Bob Livingston via,
Few of us understand patient gradualism. We live and have our being within a few years and mostly in an unconscious automated state of mind.
But people in power are long-term planners. They absolutely understand human nature and how to channel it to the evolution and refinement of the authoritarian state.
Authoritarianism is based on long-term planning. Authoritarianism is a philosophy of collectivism. Some call it democracy. Some call it communism. Some call it fascism. Some call it National Socialism. But whatever you call it, it is all collectivism or authoritarianism; and in its ultimate form it is globalism.
The goal is perfect docility and perfect harmony with authoritarianism (economic, social and spiritual). Until the people accept collectivism under some pretext, they are not docile and completely subdued. Once they do, rebellion and confrontation are impossible. This is the ultimate goal of the globalists, and the American system is nearing this state.
As I told you last week in “Why is the war on the Confederacy still going on today?,” the dismantling of the middle class has become the appointed, full-time task of the largest government alphabet soup agencies and Wall Street on behalf of globalism. The purpose behind this is that if those big middle-class producers and consumers can be decimated once and for all, then they can join the ranks of low-wage workers and more readily accept government largess and, thereby, become “hooked” on collectivism.
Collectivism is a certain means of social, economic and religious control. Politicians regularly espouse individualism, human liberty and democracy at the same time. Impossible! Individualism and human liberty are opposite to democracy and any other form of collectivism. The collectivist mentality or the mass collective mind is the spirit of the New World Order.
But something is standing in the way. Despite the years of indoctrination through the public (non)education system and mass programming by the national propaganda media and public (i.e., government) policy, rural Middle and Southern middle-class Americans — the “Red States” of “flyover country” — continue to resist the globalists’ dreams of a socialist/Marxist “utopia” and egalitarianism. That’s because they are, by and large, more independent and more self-reliant and also demand equitable reward for their labor and product, placing them in competition for resources and goods with the global elite.
Efforts to remove this obstacle are behind the current war on the middle class and individual liberty and the spirit of individualism through the attempts to whitewash Southern culture from existence and distort the true nature of the Confederate cause by casting it and Confederate symbols as racist and treasonous. The bigoted elites in the District of Criminals and pointy-headed “thinkers” in the prestigious institutes of learning continually promulgate the meme that whites — rural whites in particular and Southern whites specifically — are backward, racist buffoons riding in trucks looking for blacks to lynch while ridiculously clinging to their guns and religion.
The purpose is to stir up racial animosity and manipulate the people against one another. Manipulating minorities who are naturally drawn to socialism is basic political strategy to cover government crime and justify government politics and plunder.
The principle of government is that political power is maximized by forcibly leveling every individual to the same status of conformity, collectivism, egalitarianism and serfdom.
The truth goes deeper. Because of perceived social, cultural, racial and psychic inferiority, minorities desire to parasite on government force and socialism to subvert those they envy and wish to imitate. (This includes all so-called minority groups, not just racial minorities.)
Last summer, there was an invasion of illegals from Central and South America stemming from the immigration policies and statements of President Barack Obama. Over the ensuing months, the Obama regime shipped those illegals into communities and cities across the country and immediately began efforts to grant them some sort of legal status in order to ultimately provide them with voting rights in a back-door effort to change the local demographics and, therefore, the voting outcomes in these communities from a conservative bent to one more socialistic.
Third World immigrants are attracted to cradle-to-grave nanny state socialism because it is what they know and all they have known. They are also more accepting of gun control and the police state. They have no understanding of or experience with individual liberty or the concept of natural rights.
Gaining voting “rights” for non-citizens is the main driver of the federal opposition to voter ID laws.
The Obama regime attempted but failed with a mass social re-engineering scheme in 2010. That effort, fueled by corrupt-o-crat Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), sought to fulfill the United Nation’s Agenda 21 plan, adopted at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 and signed onto by “New World Order” President George H.W. Bush.
Using a typical government “carrot-and-stick” policy, the bill sought to award or deny grants from the federal treasury to cities based on their compliance with amending or passing zoning laws to restrict housing in rural areas and force the residents into city centers.
The stick, in addition to denial of the funds, would be bad publicity generated by “Green” organizations working on behalf of the federal government criticizing local government officials for turning down free money and neglecting so-called “Green” initiatives.
Now comes Obama’s speciously titled Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing edicts from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This extra-constitutional rule change has been in the works for more than two years, but has been largely glossed over by the MSM. It seeks to do the reverse of the Dodd bill. That is, rather than drive the suburbanites into the cities, it seeks to move inner-city minorities into the suburbs.
The AFFH will have the federal government imposing preferred racial and ethnic composition on neighborhoods in exchange for federal funds provided or denied. It will change zoning laws, require a certain amount of government-subsidized housing in rural areas in order to achieve “racial balance,” control transportation and business development and remove the authority of state and local governments in the areas of zoning, transportation and education.
As National Review’s Stanley Kurtz writes:
Fundamentally, AFFH is an attempt to achieve economic integration. Race and ethnicity are being used as proxies for class, since these are the only hooks for social engineering provided by the Fair Housing Act of 1968. Like AFFH itself, today’s Washington Post piece blurs the distinction between race and class, conflating the persistence of “concentrated poverty” with housing discrimination by race. Not being able to afford a freestanding house in a bedroom suburb is no proof of racial discrimination. Erstwhile urbanites have been moving to rustic and spacious suburbs since Cicero built his villa outside Rome. Even in a monoracial and mono-ethnic world, suburbanites would zone to set limits on dense development. Emily Badger’s piece in today’s Washington Post focuses on race, but the real story of AFFH is the attempt to force integration by class, to densify development in American suburbs and cities, and to undo America’s system of local government and replace it with a “regional” alternative that turns suburbs into helpless satellites of large cities. Once HUD gets its hooks into a municipality, no policy area is safe. Zoning, transportation, education, all of it risks slipping into the control of the federal government and the new, unelected regional bodies the feds will empower. Over time, AFFH could spell the end of the local democracy that Alexis de Tocqueville rightly saw as the foundation of America’s liberty and distinctiveness.
To accomplish its goals, HUD will dig into the racial balance ZIP code by ZIP code looking for areas of segregation, with the segregation threshold being nonwhite populations of 50 percent or more. Federally funded cities deemed overly segregated will be pressured to change their zoning laws to allow construction of more subsidized housing in affluent areas in the suburbs and relocate inner-city minorities to those predominantly white areas. HUD’s maps, which use dots to show the racial distribution or density in residential areas, will be used to select affordable-housing sites, according to the New York Post.
To employ this policy, the federal government has undertaken a massive Orwellian-style data collection initiative, prying into the medical records, credit card purchases, mortgage business records, IRS filings, employment records, educational records and local government policy initiatives searching for racial “inequalities” for the Justice Department to prosecute.
The only way to resist this tyranny is for local governments to eschew all federal monies including Community Development Block Grants going forward. Of course, local residents always pressure their community leaders to accept government monies under the auspices that they have paid their “taxes” and want a return on their “investment.” But once the Feds get their hooks into the local community through the distribution of money from the federal treasury, they can exert total control over local government’s functions regarding housing, zoning and regulations far more than they do already.
The globalist agenda is the most comprehensive program for world fascism and world collectivism ever conceived. Its basis is esoteric deception, as carried out pragmatically by mass politics, international mass banking and the mass media. It operates as a whole — as an organism. Today’s democratic globalists make the communists and the Nazis look like amateur totalitarians.
Throughout the US, the value of your home is determined, in part, by the value of the homes in your neighborhood, but there are other problems with county home appraisers that make their estimates suspect and open to political influence. It isn’t hard to imagine that HUD would pressure appraisers to keep large homes taxable value high, when the home really isn’t worth a high price anymore, due to the presence of Section 8 housing.  
HUD projects have consistently damaged property values the minute they move in to a neighborhood.  Schools end up with students who would rather be on the street, so these schools wither.  Parks are packed with gangs selling drugs.  Residents begin to hear gunshots in the night.

Michael Savage on Donald Trump

(Daily Caller) – Winston Churchill’s back — and this time he’s the classiest of class acts.
At least so says radio talk show host Michael Savage, who praised Donald Trump as the “Winston Churchill of our time” during the real estate billionaire’s appearance on Savage’s radio show Wednesday.
Savage, who said he is supporting Trump’s presidential candidacy, talked voter identification laws, immigration and the Iran nuclear deal with the man who is currently leading most Republican presidential primary polls.
Asked about Iran, Trump said it is “inconceivable” that New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, who he always “thought loved Israel,” would support the Iran deal in the Senate.
After Savage interjected to ask whether Schumer has come out to say he is going to support the deal, Trump replied, “nobody knows what he is going to do,” before suggesting Israel might pressure him to oppose it.
“Actually I’m surprised that Israel isn’t putting tremendous pressure on Schumer because they do have a lot of power over Schumer,” Trump said, implying a sitting U.S. senator’s vote could be swayed by the pressure of a foreign power.
Savage also pressed Trump on whether he would establish strict voter ID laws through an executive order as president. But before Trump could answer, Savage explained why he actually shouldn’t answer the question.
“I know I don’t want to nail you, I don’t want to get you to say ‘yes’ and then they’ll nail you for that,” Savage said. “‘Trump goes on right wing Savage Show and says’ — right away, they start screaming racism. I get it. I know what they do. I know the game.”
Trump finally broke into Savage’s monologue to say he supports ID laws, though he didn’t say whether he would establish them nationally through executive action.
Towards the end of the interview, Savage asked Trump whether he is really prepared to spend over a billion dollars to win the presidency.
“You’re a rich man, but you know this is going to cost a billion and a half dollars. You surely don’t want to throw all of that out on your own. Are you considering having people donate money or not?” he asked.
Trump said some people send money into his campaign, but he doesn’t want to take large checks because he doesn’t want to be beholden to anyone.
“Michael, one man offered $5 million, they want to put millions in,” Trump explained. “I said, ‘don’t do it because I don’t want to have a position where some day you’re going to need [something].”
Pressed again if he is willing to spend $1.5 billion of his own wealth to win the White House, Trump simply replied, “I’ll see what happens.”

Fire Boehner & McConnell

Boehner, McConnell ‘Destroying Party From the Top’ Republicans’ view of leadership driven ‘into the dirt, face 1st’, 7/29/15.
(WND) – Congressional Republicans are headed toward summer recess in turmoil, and former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says it’s because Republican leaders are acting like big-spending liberals and conservatives have had enough of it.
The House of Representatives is the scene of the latest unrest, as Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., filed a motion to remove House Speaker John Boehner from his leadership position. Boehner said he will not allow a vote before recess.
Things are just as intense in the Senate. Last Friday, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., a liar on the Senate floor for allegedly insisting to GOP colleagues that there was no deal with Democrats to add an amendment to the highway funding bill that would re-authorize the Export-Import Bank. That amendment was easily approved, while McConnell refused to consider amendments to defund Planned Parenthood or withhold homeland security funds from sanctuary cities.
McConnell vows to hold a separate vote to defund Planned Parenthood, and the process is being fast-tracked. Nonetheless, conservatives are fed up with what they see as a GOP leadership abandoning the conservative principles they espoused last year to win the majority.
Listen to the WND/Radio America interview with former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli:

Rand Paul on Planned Parenthood

Rand Paul is gathering social conservatives with his battle to defund Planned Parenthood.  He already has Constitutional Conservatives and fiscal conservatives. His positions on other issues have attracted blue collar, union, minority and younger voters along with Pastors, grandparents and fiscal hawks. – Norb Leahy 
The Washington spin machine is very consistent in their efforts to tear down the candidates who are strongest against Hillary Clinton and pump up those candidates who are weakest against Hillary Clinton.
Poll after poll has shown that Rand Paul is the strongest
candidate to defeat Hillary Clinton because he simultaneously invigorates the GOP base while reaching out to Independents and disaffected Democrats. (Breitbart)
There is nothing scarier to liberals than Rand Paul as the
Republican nominee. That is why the DNC has attacked Rand Paul more than they have attacked any other GOP candidate. (The Hill)  That is why the media is trying to destroy his campaign this week.  And that is also why we must have Rand Paul as the nominee.
But the attacks from the Washington spin machine reached a new low soon after Rand led the effort last week to Defund Planned Parenthood.
He gave interviews on the Laura Ingraham Show, Fox News, Meet the Press and a host of other national outlets saying that he would do anything in his power to stop the use of taxpayers' funds from being used to sell the body parts of aborted babies.
Just days later, the stories started coming out saying the
campaign is in some sort of turmoil. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Washington Machine doesn't want Rand to take on Hillary.  And they don't want to Defund Planned Parenthood.
But conservatives aren't going to sit by while liberals try to
stop us.  We are going to point out the facts:
Rand Paul has built the strongest campaign team. (Breitbart)
Rand Paul is the strongest against Hillary Clinton. (Rare)
Rand Paul raised $7 million with strong grassroots support. (
Rand Paul's popularity is surging after taking on Planned
Parenthood. (Conservative Intel)
Rand Paul has gained in the overnight tracking by Reuters every single day since he launched his effort to Defund Planned Parenthood.  That is right; Rand has gained support every single day in media polling from the last week.
It's no coincidence he is being attacked. But Rand is not backing down.  He is going to fight back with every bone in his body and work the phones right up until the vote next week to Defund Planned Parenthood and stop taxpayer dollars from being used on their disturbing efforts.
He won't back down.  He will be the nominee.  He will beat
Hillary Clinton.
Thank you for standing with Rand in this important fight.
Sincerely, Doug Stafford, Chief Strategist, Rand Paul for President

Congress Sold Us Out

2015: The year Congress gave up?, By Robert Romano,7/30/15
2015 may go down as the year that Congress gave up some of its most important legislative powers. Or, at least, the year it was confirmed that Congress’ powers are not what they used to be.
Take President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty granting legal status to millions of illegal immigrants with children who were born in the U.S.
In 2014, Congressional Republicans campaigned on the issue and promised to roll it back if they were granted majorities in the House and Senate. They won.
And Homeland Security funding was even separated out from the omnibus so that very fight could be had in 2015 with the new majorities.
But when push came to shove, Congress relented, and gave funding for Homeland Security without any strings attached, thus granting the taxpayer dollars to carry out the amnesty program.
Then there was the Iran nuclear deal. Members of Congress say they now oppose it. But why didn’t they wait for Obama to reveal the deal before they passed H.R. 1191? That legislation by Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) was passed in May and gave Obama all of the authority he needed to lift sanctions against Iran’s nuclear program.
The law provides that “any measure of statutory sanctions relief by the United States pursuant to an agreement [with Iran]… may be taken, consistent with existing statutory requirements for such action, if, following the period for review provided… there is not enacted any such joint resolution” by Congress disapproving of the deal.
In other words, the Iran nuclear deal was preapproved before anyone could read it. And Congress wanted to pretend that it would be voting against it after it was unveiled. Give me a break.
Naturally, Obama promised to veto any such resolution of disapproval, and 150 House Democrats signaled in May that they will be voting to sustain such a veto.
The Senate should have treated the nuclear deal as a treaty and subjected it to that level of scrutiny, including the constitutionally-requisite two-thirds majority of present senators to ratify it. Instead, Congress ceded the Senate’s treaty power.
Apologists will say this is nothing new. And indeed it isn’t. Presidents have been entering into legally-binding executive agreements with foreign nations for decades.
In United States v. Belmont (1937), the Supreme Court found that international compacts – even ones that are not treaties, including executive agreements, and thus were not approved by two-thirds of the Senate – were the supreme law of the land.
Wrote Justice George Sutherland in the court’s majority opinion: “While this rule in respect of treaties is established by the express language of clause 2, article 6, of the Constitution, the same rule would result in the case of all international compacts and agreements from the very fact that complete power over international affairs is in the national government and is not and cannot be subject to any curtailment or interference on the part of the several states.”
The question was whether an executive agreement with the Soviet Union that was never ratified by the Senate trumped state law, invoking the supremacy clause. In that case it did. That was the decision that obliterated the treaty clause. Now Senate ratification is optional.
Next there was legislation granting trade authority to Obama to negotiate the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a global trade agreement between the U.S. and Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam.
Now don’t tell me trade deals are not treaties, too. In 1795, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay negotiated a commercial treaty with Great Britain, “The Treaty of Amity, Commerce, and Navigation, Between His Britannic Majesty and The United States of America.” It was put to the Senate for ratification by a two-thirds vote, which eventually came on June 24, 1795.
Yet, with the trade authority legislation, Obama gets to submit the final agreement to Congress for approval by a simple majority of both chambers, instead of the two-thirds treaty ratification vote in the Senate.
Of course, like executive agreements, this sort of executive-congressional agreement is nothing new, thanks to the Trade Act of 1974, which created an entirely new method of enacting trade accords. Now, the House and Senate authorize the President to negotiate trade deals, and then they are adopted by the House and Senate on an expedited basis — so-called fast track legislation.
The framers of the legislation pretend that it will “prohibit the National Telecommunications and Information Administration from relinquishing responsibility over the Internet domain name system…”
That is, “Until the date that is 30 legislative days after the submission to Congress of [a] report” by NTIA making certain certifications that everything will be okay with the transition.
In other words, the very bill that purports to “prohibit” turning over the administration of vital Internet functions — governing the assignment of domain names and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses — actually authorizes their giveaway to the international community. All the Obama administration would have to do is turn in a book report to complete the transition.
Again, the legislation is put forth as the means to stop an Obama agenda item, in this case the Internet giveaway, but actually sows the seeds for it being passed. How deceptive. How cynical.
And all this after Republicans ran for majorities in the House and Senate on the promise of restoring the legislative branch’s primacy. Are they kidding, or what? We need Congress to assert its constitutionally-enumerated powers under Article I and Article II now more than ever. It’s not just a campaign talking point; it actually needs to be done to stop this administration.

Why The Patriot Act is Tyranny and Rand Paul is a Hero

( eid=[UNIQID])  By Tom DeWeese
Senator Rand Paul is taking a lot of heat from establishment Conservatives and some in the media for his unwavering stand against the Patriot Act. The party line that is emerging says that we are now vulnerable to terrorist attack. Even Senator Paul, himself, said he was being accused of damaging America’s defenses against such attacks.
These accusations are almost humorous considering that many of these same establishment Republicans have refused to force Barack Obama to enforce immigration laws. That fact now allows literally anyone who wants to harm our nation to cross over the border and to not only remain here, but also to receive tax payer benefits and perhaps even the right to vote. Reportedly, Obama is allowing people from the same Middle Eastern nations that give rise to terrorism to flood into our nation at horrific rates.
Newly announced presidential candidate Lindsey Graham is especially guilty of this let down in American security as he has pushed for policies to open our borders even further. So too have Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush. Has anyone accused them of damaging American national security?
The fact is Rand Paul is a defender of American security unlike any other candidate currently running to lead this nation. He’s one of a very few to openly stand for the Constitutional rights of all Americans to be secure in their homes and free of government snooping into their private business.
The created hysteria over the Patriot Act being a guardian of our freedom is hog wash. This is the Patriot Act that was rushed into place just after a horrific terrorist attack – 911. Of course the nation was scared and of course out went the cry – “Do something NOW to protect us.”
When introduced, we were assured by the Justice Department that the Patriot Act was simply to give federal law enforcement agencies the surveillance and investigative tools they needed to deter future terror attacks. However, the emotional rush to “do something” by quickly passing the Patriot Act, left little time for lawmakers to put its measures under scrutiny. In fact, then Congressman Ron Paul said he couldn’t even get a copy of the Act before the vote.
As a result, provisions of the Act offered major opportunities for government abuses of law-abiding private citizens. The Act says that the government does not need to have a suspect or to even be conducting an investigation related to terrorism to monitor your visits into web sites on the Internet.
The Patriot Act changed the definition of terrorism, allowing even legitimate protestors, such as pro-life activists, to be at risk of being labeled “terrorists” if violence erupted at their events. And since its enactment, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has officially contracted with the Department of Homeland Security to create definitions of what and who constitute domestic terrorists. Just as predicted, that definition does not include Middle Eastern men connected with groups like Al-Qaeda or ISIS. Instead, in many official circles it has come to mean those Americans who demand that the United States government adhere to the U.S. Constitution.
The Patriot Act expands the capability to obtain warrants and conduct searches without disclosing them immediately. Under the Act, law enforcement can walk into your home and take records without your knowing they were there. If a warrant is obtained, you may never know about it. It doesn’t even require a real judge to obtain one anymore.
The Act requires fuller identification of bank customers. A year before 9-11 more than 150,000 Americans protested these very provisions in a scheme by the FDIC called “Know Your Customer.” Congressman Ron Paul wrote of the Know Your Customer plan, “Under these regulations, banks will be required to first create a profile of all new and current customers. The profile will include such information as their credit history and other standard financial reviews, but will be expanded to include the customer’s deposit and withdrawal habits. This information will be gathered over the first few months of the account’s creation. After that, any account activity that deviates from the profile will be considered suspicious behavior.”
Rep. Paul went on to say, “Not only will ‘unusual’ deposits into your account trigger suspicion, but so too might large cash withdrawals.” Privacy advocates were able to officially stop the Know Your Customer scheme. But most of its provisions returned in the Patriot Act. And just this year, 2015, the Justice Department announced its intention to carefully watch the activities of all Americans and their bank accounts by suggesting banks report anyone withdrawing at least $5000.
Under the Patriot Act, a special software was developed to help firms in 25 finance-related industries, covered by the law, to compare millions of customer records with thousands of entries on federal blacklists.
Businesses such as car dealers, insurance companies, investment brokers, lenders and real estate firms are required to file “Suspicious Activity Reports” to the Treasury Department.
Here’s an interesting fact. The Patriot Act only mentions protecting our northern border. It says not a word about the southern one. Our southern border remains, absolutely wide open, allowing anyone to literally walk into this country. And the Obama Administration has used that loophole beyond what any normal American could have ever foreseen at the writing of the Act.
In the name of fighting terrorism, we have witnessed a new kind of government “urban sprawl” oozing out of Washington, D.C. into every back alley, bedroom, and underwear drawer in America.
In 2004 the Government Electronics and Information Technology Association (GEIA) reported that there were more than 100 federal entities involved in forging the largest conglomeration of government/private contractor interests since the creation of the Pentagon. GEIA represents hundreds of corporate members which had cashed in on the Homeland Security-citizen-surveillance-spending spree.
In September 2002, dozens of major high-tech companies formed the “Homeland Security Industries Association.” A key objective of the association was to win a piece of the action for the creation of national ID cards for travelers.
Business Week reported that the SAS Institute was among many corporations scrambling to launch a whole new line of anti-money laundering software designed to help insurance companies, investment banks and brokerage firms spy on their clients’ financial activities on behalf of the government in compliance with the Patriot Act.
Bert Ely, the head of a consulting company for financial institutions, warned that the anti-money laundering provisions of the Patriot Act would do nothing to stop the financing of international terrorists. At best, he said, the new provisions would actually provide evildoers with a road map to avoid detection.
What the Patriot Act provisions are really about, said Ely, is to have the United States fall into line with an international campaign being waged by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the Financial Action Task Force against countries that serve as tax havens. It’s all about tax collection!
Business Week also reported that private-sector software makers were racing to develop programs to zero in on gambling. Business Week noted that, “the feds have put casinos on notice that they’re next in the line of security.” Now, how many terrorists have actually raised their funds in Las Vegas?
In mid-September 2002, the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Office of Homeland Security held an expo in Washington. Medium and small firms from across the nation were invited in to showcase the very latest in citizen surveillance wares.
The US Chamber of Commerce hired the former deputy assistant to the Joint Chiefs of Staff to act as a liaison between the chamber and businesses seeking homeland security contracts. Political Moneyline reported that 444 groups and individuals had registered as lobbyists to deal with “terror” and “security” issues.
IBM has opened a “Government Solutions Center” in Vienna, Virginia. The high-tech Unisys Corporation established a similar exhibition for inspection by federal surveillance planners, called the “Homeland Security Center for Excellence.”
Both corporations raced to cash in on billions of dollars for facial recognition systems at airports and, in anticipation of “trusted traveler” cards, a high-tech ID tied to extensive background checks and biometric identification.
So, in the name of fighting terrorism, America was saddled with a massive control over the actions of all Americans, yet it failed to foil even a single terrorist plot. What it did accomplish, however, was a massive buildup of government policing power, designed to keep tabs on every movement of the American people. In addition, the Patriot Act created massive financial opportunity for industries that produced surveillance equipment and software.
All of this is what Senator Paul was objecting to. This massive growth of government and the obvious loss of liberty that comes with it is what he was trying to stop.
Does it then come as a surprise that Senator Rand Paul has become public enemy #1 by establishment Republican hawks, big money Republican fund raisers, all big government proponents and their Patriot Act-dependent industries? As said in the landmark movie “Network,” he has messed with the natural order of things.”
Senator Rand Paul is a hero to all who value their liberty, personal privacy and private property rights. He is the only candidate now running for President to actually take positive action to try to preserve and protect our freedoms. He deserves the respect and support of all who claim to favor those liberties.

Social Justice Warriors don’t want justice; they want to upend civilization by Kathleen Marquardt
Social Justice has nothing to do with justice; it is a tool – an especially big and powerful tool in the Sustainable Development realm – being used to tear apart Western Culture and replace it with chaos and civil war.  As a tool it is doing the job very well.  In this Observer article, Cathy Young does an excellent job of shining the light on SJWs.
The Pecking Disorder: Social Justice Warriors Gone Wild
“Working to correct inequities is a noble goal—which explains the appeal of the “social justice” movement to many fair-minded people. But the movement in its current form is not about that. It elevates an extreme and polarizing version of identity politics in which individuals are little more than the sum of their labels. It encourages wallowing in anger and guilt. It promotes intolerance and the politicization of everything. It must be stopped—not only for the sake of freedom, but for the sake of a kinder, fairer society.”

What do the EPA, Endangered Species Act, Center for Biological Diversity, new Floodplain Standards, Environmental Justice and Obama have in common?
by Kathleen Marquardt
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding."       [Olmstead v. U.S., 277 U.S. 438 (1928) (dissenting)]” ― Louis D. Brandeis
What they have in common is the desire for complete control over private property and thus nothing less than our liberty, our freedom.  Without the right to private property man cannot be free.  What you see are bureaucrats (and their laws) conspiring with NGOs to take our land by a proliferation of restrictions, edicts, executive orders and laws.  The cfact article enumerates just a few of them.
Below that is the URL for the EPA’s Environmental Justice Screen mentioned in the cfact article.
Greens, Feds team up to link land-use restrictions to climate change: Their goal -- complete control over all private property
“In determining what constitutes a ‘future flood risk,’ the White House assured the nation that such decisions would be closely tied to, in Obama’s words, ‘a national policy on resilience and risk reduction consistent with my Climate Action Plan.’  In other words, the administration’s policies to ‘combat climate change’ will serve to justify a new bundle of regulations and standards imposed on communities throughout the country in the name of protecting them from flooding.”

Last week I spoke in the tiny community of Rindge, NH. Here local citizens discovered strange things happening in their local government. Turned out to be Agenda 21. So they took action to stop it. Changed the local government and made it mandatory that before the government could apply for a HUD grant they first had to have a vote of the people. Creative, inspiring stuff! I went there to congratulate them and to warn them to stay vigilant because the battle isn't over. - Tom DeWeese

New manual to teach you how to Stop Agenda 21 by Tom DeWeese
The Wrenching Transformation of America: Agenda 21
Here's what's in my manual
* I outline the treaties, policy papers, and international meetings that have set the policy.
* I show how those international policies directly enter local communities disguised as innocent-sounding development projects or historic preservation.
* I reveal how those international plans are moving past Congress and directly into local communities through a network of self-proclaimed “stakeholders.”
* I explain how the Supreme Court has helped them do it.
* I expose how private organizations are able to take control of your community and enforce these policies without a vote or any input from you. I also demonstrate how Agenda 21 is affecting you right now:
* International policy is currently directing local communities to enforce cutbacks on water use by as much as 75%.
* The Sierra Club’s plan forces 500 families to live on one acre of land and they deem it “Smart Growth.”
* The new corporate law called “Benefit Corporations” enlists corporations to enforce sustainable development policies in their products and promotions. Nearly every state has now either passed or is considering this legislation.
I’m not only talking about radical environmental policy!
There is so much more.
* Do you think Obama’s healthcare policy is his brainchild? Of course not. In the manual, I show you its direct connection to sustainable development and the true purpose behind the planned destruction of America’s health care system.
* Do our children receive poor educations because there is not enough money and teachers in the classrooms? I will show you that the dumbing down of American children is intentional and that the schools are operating for what they have been “reformed” to do. It is called “Common Core.”
* I will show you how global warming is the greatest hoax ever played on man and I’ll show you why the Sustainablists cannot drop this discredited issue for fear of losing all of their demands for Agenda 21 policy.
* I will show you some of the victims of these tyrannical policies and how they have been robbed of their property and livelihood simply because a government has too much power.
Most importantly, to complete this manual, I have included special reports from a team of experts, including former Senate Environment Committee staffer Marc Morano, one of the world’s top experts on the global warming hoax; the late Henry Lamb, the man who first exposed the UN’s global governance agenda; Mike Coffman and Michael Chapman, two of the nation’s leading experts on sustainable development and the international treaties and policies that are changing our nation; Author Wynne Coleman, one of the nation’s leading experts on Benefit Corporations; Joan Swirskyand Dr. Karen Effrem, two of the nation’s leading experts on Common Core; and the late Dr. Madeleine Cosman, a pioneer in exposing the destruction of our nation’s once-great health care system by connecting the dots to Agenda 21.
Of course there are lots of newsletters, blogs, and Internet sites out there with “insider” information. However, I have seen most of them and I know for a fact that many are missing the big picture! They will tell you about federal policies, taxes, bailouts, corrupt politicians, secret deals, and lots of stuff that–while it may be important–fails to connect the dots to the real root of the problem.
Other “experts” are missing the core threat: it is not discussed in the media, at many TEA party rallies or in national conferences, and certainly not in Congress or other levels of government.
The core threat is revealed in detail in my special report.
Only in this manual will you learn:
* How our language is being manipulated to control policy
* The threat we face is not a Republican or Democrat issue.
* The ruling principle that will completely reorganize our society.
* The three E’s of control.
* The threat of the “precautionary principle” and how it will destroy our economy.
* How Public/Private Partnerships are destroying free enterprise.
* How the politically-based radical environmental movement uses fear of environmental damage as camouflage while they work to transform the American systems of government, justice, and economics
* The dawn of “Common-ism” that transformed national sovereignty, natural resources, and private land into “common property” for the UN’s “global commons.”
* How the public education system has been transformed to create “global village idiots.”
* The four international commissions that are transforming the world towards global governance.
* The full definition of an NGO and where they came from.
* The most powerful environmental group in the world and why it is the most dangerous.
* How UN policies become American law.
* The Smart Growth fraud.
* The lunacy of the Wildlands Project.
* How “green” industry is costing taxpayers millions in additional costs and with no benefit.
Most importantly, the manual includes step-by-step details on how to fight against Agenda 21 in your community, including:
* The exact language necessary to protect property rights.
* The “Resolution for the Protection of Citizen’s Property Rights” and how to use it as an effective tool to stop Agenda 21 in your community.
