Consider with care your November vote!

Throw the Bums Out! Oh, People, I understand and share your rage at the mounting destruction of our form of government. Progressive Democrats dominate the Congress and the White House. Let's not "throw the baby out with the bath water". We all count on the Tea Party website to keep us informed on upcoming elections so we can "throw the bums out"while keeping the good people in Washington. There are some that are good people, right? Let's review each candidates' history, voting record, and their… Continue

THIS CONGRESS HAS NO SHAME

In an attempt to win the presidential election, Obama deceived Americans with his rhetoric about transparency, tax cuts, Guantanamo Bay, banning earmarks, won't force Americans to buy insurance, negotiations on C-SPAN, bills online for 5 days, etc etc etc, and the big one ---- cutting spending!

18 months into this administration is enough to frustrate any responsible individual who has had to either budget a household or run a company -- neither of which this president has…

Tea Party and the Main Stream Media

Why is the Tea Party not in front of the main stream media's office protesting the very fact they are not delivering a free press according to our Constitution? Maybe if thousands of people stood in front of their headquarters protesting their lack of reporting on the Obama Administration and his socialist push to change our great country we would begin to see some reporting done on this dangerous enemy in the White House. And secondly, why are we not calling for removal of…

Are you PISSED OFF YET!!! RISE UP WITH BALLETS THIS NOVEMBER!!!

I AM PISSED!!!! We give the schools (run by Unions and Liberals) the smartest and brightest 5 year olds and the schools give us back the most ignorant mental midgets out of high school.

WHAT BARACK OBAMA IS THINKING

So, Obama thinks he's the second coming of FDR, but he has a rude awakening. He's not, and it's not the 1930's. America has come a long way in 70+ years, and once again the left wing radicals have underestimated the American people. It would also take someone far more experienced than this guy, who is the "least qualified, and least experienced guy in the…

A Star is Born

The history of America’s black people informs me that whites have thought blacks were inferior, moreover, it was dangerous to educate them, in fact against the law. What a terrible thought! George Washington owned slaves. Thomas Jefferson owned slaves. Even the emancipator of America’s slaves, Abraham Lincoln, believed blacks were inferior. America is not the shining city on the hill some people…

ALERT ALERT

OMG!! -> Government Now Wants To Seize Your Car For Going 5MPH Over The Limit

We’ve discussed this on and off for several years now. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal process that allows the government to seize assets and cash from citizens without any due process or judicial oversight.

You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. You are assumed guilty unless you can somehow prove your innocence.

Of course, not everyone has this ability… if you aren’t local, state, or federal law enforcement, this is called stealing, and you go to prison.

But the government is actually a bigger problem than common thieves.

A 2015 report showed that law enforcement used civil asset forfeiture to steal more from US residents than every thief, robber, and burglar in America combined.

About $4.5 BILLION worth of cash, cars, homes, and other property is taken by civil asset forfeiture each year – hundreds of millions more than common criminals steal.

And it happens at every level. Your local cop can use civil asset forfeiture just like your state trooper. And then any one of the armed agents of the US government—from the FBI to the Fish and Wildlife Service—can rob you for whatever reason they want.

This travesty continues to grow because the cops who take your stuff get to keep it. Police departments and government agencies around the country depend on civil asset forfeiture to boost their budgets.

Cops will literally keep some of the cars they take as squad cars. And they make a fortune auctioning off the houses, boats, and anything else they confiscate.

Obviously this gives cops an incentive to steal, whether or not they actually think the property was used in a crime, or acquired illegally. Remember, civil asset forfeiture adds billions every year to their bottom line.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of civil asset forfeiture.

Tyson Timbs was convicted of selling a small amount of drugs to an undercover police officer. He was sentenced to house arrest, and paid about $1,200 in fines.

But then police used civil asset forfeiture to take his $42,000 Land Rover which Timbs purchased with money from a life insurance policy after his father died. The money did not come from selling drugs, or any other illegal activity.

Timbs sued, and the case made its way to the Supreme Court, because every lower court in Indiana said the forfeiture was perfectly legit.

The case revolves around whether or not the seizure of the Land Rover was an excessive fine under the 8th amendment, and whether or not this protection against excessive fines applies to state governments.

And the public got some crazy insight into the government’s position.

The Indiana Solicitor General was arguing in favor of civil asset forfeiture when Justice Stephen Breyer asked him a hypothetical.

Breyer asked, if a state needs revenue, could it force someone to forfeit their Bugatti, Mercedes, or Ferrari for speeding? Even if they were going just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit?

And the utterly appalling answer from the Indiana Solicitor General was, yes.

That’s right… the official government position is that they can steal any amount of your property in “connection” with any crime whatsoever, no matter how trivial the crime may be… even exceeding the speed limit by 5 miles per hour.

This is how overbearing and authoritarian the government has become in the land of the free.

This is how much power your local cop has… and the power only grows as you go to state, and federal officials.

If there is any solace in any of this, it is that the other Supreme Court Justices were reportedly laughing at this exchange.

The justices seemed incredulous that Indiana’s top lawyer was using such absurd assertions and flimsy reasoning in his arguments.

So, for now, we can keep our cars if we get pulled over for speeding. But that may not always be the case…

Depending on how this is ruled, it could pave the way for even more egregious abuses of power… or it could curb the practice, and reign in these thieves in uniforms.

Just understand where the government is coming from. These politicians, bureaucrats and officers think they can do whatever they want. Absolutely anything goes, with no limitation whatsoever.

And that makes it a little tough to feel like you really live in the land of the free.
