“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”—Martin Niemoller
Despite what some may think, the Constitution is no magical incantation against government wrongdoing. Indeed, it’s only as effective as those who abide by it. However, without courts willing to uphold the Constitution’s provisions when government officials disregard it and a citizenry knowledgeable enough to be outraged when those provisions are undermined, it provides little to no protection against SWAT team raids, domestic surveillance, police shootings of unarmed citizens, indefinite detentions, and the like.
Unfortunately, the courts and the police have meshed in their thinking to such an extent that anything goes when it’s done in the name of national security, crime fighting and terrorism. Consequently, America no longer operates under a system of justice characterized by due process, an assumption of innocence, probable cause and clear prohibitions on government overreach and police abuse. Instead, our courts of justice have been transformed into courts of order, advocating for the government’s interests, rather than championing the rights of the citizenry, as enshrined in the Constitution.
Just recently, for example, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in U.S. v. Westhoven that driving too carefully, with a rigid posture, taking a scenic route, and having acne are sufficient reasons for a police officer to suspect you of doing something illegal, detain you, search your car, and arrest you—even if you’ve done nothing illegal to warrant the stop in the first place.
In that same vein, the U.S. Supreme Court declared in a 5-4 ruling in Navarette v. California that police officers can, under the guise of “reasonable suspicion,” stop cars and question drivers based solely on anonymous tips, no matter how dubious, and whether or not they themselves witnessed any troubling behavior.
And then you have the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear Hedges v. Obama, a legal challenge to the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), thereby affirming that the President and the U.S. military can arrest and indefinitely detain individuals, including American citizens, based on a suspicion that they might be associated with or aiding terrorist organizations.
I agree...cannot be too careful anymore in what used to be the USA.......now it is a place where anything immoral and lawless and abnormal is celebrated and those of us living by the 10 Commandments and are Patriots are vilified....reminds me of 2Tim Ch3
WE?? No Obama and his puppet masters are doing this. This lame congress/senate are abiding by his every facist wish. It has got to stop and it will if this congress or the people demand impeachment.
Congress aint going to do a thing its we the people that will have to march on DC in the millions and forcfully take him out of the White House and civally try him there on the spot then when found guilty string him up from the highest tree and then g down the line from there Billery Clinton would be next
One thing that any student of military science knows is that an enemy that can convince you to misidentify who they are and what they are up to is giving enormous power to themselves if they can convince you that they are something else other than what they are, and that they are up to something other than what you think they are doing. In military science this is called a ruse.
The Administration and it's cronies talk like Marxist, they employ Gramsci style tactics, Their use of Alinsky's tactics and their vision for the fulfillment of the historic progression of the dialectic are all Marxist. I have listened to blubbering idiots spout off about how Communism and Nazism are the same thing. Believe me, the Communist love you for this, because this is giving them a lot of power. Instead of training our people about how Cultural Marxism has infiltrated and influenced our society, we get asinine diatribe about Obama the Nazi.
Go ahead give the Communists what they want. Get mad and blubber about how you know all about Hitler, and how it is Hitler who is in control, and not international Marxists. Keep this up, and if I survive I'll meet you in the Gulag and say "Well, I told you so, but you wouldn't listen".
Last time I wrote about this someone had to write about six pages trying to convince everyone that we were fighting the Nazis, because he was so afraid that it would come to light that we are dealing with a communist enemy. And as if that was not enough he writes all these pages trying to convince everyone that The communists and nazis are the same thing, when they are not. I am beginning to think that we have an ADL troll in high places. Beware, get off track and sabotage Tea Party and someone else will come along to replace Tea Party and patriots will move into the new patriot party after Tea Party gets compromised.
World/International Communism, Marxism, Leninism, Socialism, Fascism, Naziism, Maoism, Modern Liberalism, Progressiveism, are all variations of the SAME basic Philosophy - Marxist-Socialism. With discernable differences.
All require Control (power) consolidated at the Central Govt. (Federal) level. All require a Bureaucracy which will exploit power to their personal agenda (Lois Lerner). All require Redistribution of Wealth (by a Dictator where applicable) and all require the Central Govt. to control the Economy - the Marxist Economic System.
NAZI - "National Socialist Workers Party" Soviet Communism: World/International Communism. Hitler and Stalin signed a non-aggression pact - because they were both Socialists. Hitler persecuted the Communists - because they didn't believe in Fascism. Hitler persecuted the (pure) Socialists - because they didn't countenance a Dictator.
Don't get hung up on MINOR differences. 'Name' them what they ALL are - Marxist-Socialists.
These my friend are not minor differences. The ultimate goals are radically different. Both groups have been monsters, but they are not the same. Mis identification can have disastrous results. There will be more coming on this issue. Much is at stake. Mr. Rosenbaum. By the way, I am Sephardic.
Perhaps they are not...but they end the same way...loss of our God-given rights to freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and property....and they ALL end with a dictator and us peons under their insane control.....ALL the things our Founders fought and died for, to give us...gone......I cannot look my children in the eye and say I stood by and did nothing..God guides my feet in ALL ways now...perhaps I will see you in the FEMA re-education camps....I will not bow to whatever they are because they are ci\ontrolled by Satan...evil pure and simple!
Of course we are. If people listen to what Odumbo says they would know this. He has stated that one of his favorite persons in history is Adolph Hitler. And if you knew anything about Hitler, you would know that there wasn't a move in Germany that he hadn't micromanaged.
And thats why they lost the war coz he wasnt that great just the same as Obummo thinks hes great hes only a great pain in the ass
“WE WANT GOD” is an answer to the stress in our country. The stress exists because organized atheism is bullying Organized Christianity. When this same stress existed in the Soviet Union, Christians began standing up to atheism on June 2, 1979, by saying in unison “We Want God.” Because of that stance, they caused the Soviet Union to collapse within ten years, marking the end of organized atheism in the governing bodies of Eastern Europe. Peggy Noonan documented that story in the Wall Street Journal under the title “We Want God.”
The regime of organized atheism ruled in Eastern Europe for more than 40 years, using oppressive bureaucracies and armed forces to impose its rule. In the United States of America, the many factions of organized atheism are abusing the rule of law to chip away at the religious freedoms traditionally enjoyed by Organized Christianity. This process of ‘death by a thousand cuts’ is sanctioned, even encouraged, by a regime that is imposing the rule of Big Government on our country through the use of oppressive bureaucracies. So far, this process does not include the use of armed forces.
You and I and all like-minded people in our own country can also stand up to the bullying of organized atheism. We can say in unison “We Want God,” and we can say it as we decide whom to vote for on November 4, 2014. This November, elect only those candidates whom you can trust to become servants of the people, not bullies of the people. Elect only those candidates whom you can trust to take Big Government Bureaucracy out of our homes and out of our private lives.
Stand up to the bullies. Tell them “We Want God.”
Also there is a push by Mayor Deblasio for pre-k education in NYC. Though local papers such as the New York Post focussed on the tax issue to pay for it, seems to me it could be used to make sure the little ones get indoctrinated early!
Our federal government is laying the 'ground-work' for NDAA take-over by 'Domestic Terrorists' - 'TEA Party Terrorist' - 'Republican Terrorists' - 'United States Sponsored Terrorists'- & the list[s] go on & on & on . . . .
