Netanyahu letter to Obama

Dear President Obama,
I am writing today with a somewhat unusual request.
First and foremost, I will be asking that you return America to its August 20th, 1959 borders so that Hawaii is no longer a state and you are no longer a citizen.
 
 Sincerely,
Benjamin Netanyahu
Prime Minister of Israel

The whole truth is a will-o’-the-wisp

First of all, think on this: There is no such thing as objective reality.   If the American people don’t get the whole truth of what is taking place this election season, life as we know it will be gone for good.

 

In all life, life is a struggle, and then came human keepers of life, better known as environmentalists.  What could be more noble than saving the planet?  Greedy capitalists are polluting, using up natural resources, utterly disregarding other life. …

Republicans have no chance to defeat Oblahblah.

 

The current clowns that are running in the R primary have no chance of beating Oblahblah.  

 

There was only one person that actually  fired up conservatives and that was Donald Trump.  However, he jumped ship after he realized ABC,NBC,CBS,CNN,MSNBC, and CNBC were going to attack him and his family for the next 18 months.  Not only that the Rep elite ( Karl Rover) (Rush Pinball) did not want an outsider…

The Inherent Fraud of Federal Government Contracting

WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

Fraud, Waste and Abuse in the Federal Government has been going on for many years and that is part of the reason that the United States is going broke.  Instead of having the federal civil service do the job they were hired for, the Federal Government has been contracting out those jobs at a cost of three (3) times, (Yes Virginia...you read that correctly ...…

Abortion is Wrong!

WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

Abortion is not only wrong morally but it is murder.  Roe Vs Wade does not exonerate the fact that is the willful destruction of another human being.  See the video below for enlightenment and stop listening to those misguided souls who are telling you it is ok!

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.
