AND THEY CALL THIS SECURITY?

Standard

I wondered what was actually included in the House Resolution that is supposedly designed to fund the Department of Homeland Security for the year 2015 and beyond (HR 240), so I set upon the task of “reading the bill.”

While working my way through the vast and sundry online PDF pages, I see that the number of references and amendments within this unmanageable piece of so-called legislation is almost frightening.

Of course, HR 240 is presently being stalled in the Senate by the Democrats looking for a “clean bill” because the Republicans added amendments that the Democrats don’t like (I wonder if they have really read them). Whether any of our legislators have actually “read it”, the bill is in-and-of itself anything but clean.

In fact, the evolution of the entire legislative process of this great Republic has become so dirty that it is going to need a strong dose of citizen disinfectant if we ever hope to pass on to our children the legacy of Liberty that men have fought and died for throughout human history.

Even if you take out the 5 or 6 Republican amendments that supposedly strip out the funding for the immigration piece of HR 240, you still have a huge bill that in the first paragraph requires the unelected, untouchable, vastly powerful Secretary of Homeland Security to provide “a comprehensive plan for the implementation of the biometric entry and exit data system required under section 7208 of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004.”

Now, if you go to the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 and locate Section 7208 (that starts on Page 181 and continues through Page 187), you will find that it references the requirement for a plan that was to be created within 180 days of the enactment of that Prevention Act (which was December 17, 2004).

Where is that plan, you ask?  I don’t know.  I’ll see if I can find it, after I try to get through Section 7208 of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (which I will do just shortly after I get through the 100 pages of HR 240 and the 44 pages of HR 191 for which the Aderholdt amendment to HR 240 is fashioned after).

And right after I finish reading Section 7208 of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, I will try to get to the “applicable sections” of the following pieces of legislation that Section 7208 references:

(1) The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (Public Law 104–208);

(2) The Immigration and Naturalization Service Data Management Improvement Act of 2000 (Public Law 106–205);

(3) The Visa Waiver Permanent Program Act (Public Law 106–396);

(4) The Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Act of 2002 (Public Law 107–173); and

(5) The Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (USA PATRIOT ACT) Act of 2001 (Public Law 107– 56).

Of course, if I am to have any kind of contextual understanding of just what kinds of unconstitutional burdens these various Sections of this laundry list of Acts will ultimately have on the legal, law-abiding good citizens of the United States of America, I’m going to have to also read Pages 1 through 181 and Pages 188 through 236 of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004.  I am going to have to read the 20 memoranda that Section 201 of HR 191 (the Aderholt amendment to the Department of Homeland Security funding bill) purports to replace or restrict or amend or revise. And I am going to have to read all of the other amendments and references that each of the aforementioned pieces of legislation might include on all of the pages that I have yet to read.

But wait, it isn’t me who has to read all of this nonsense, it is the men and women who have taken an Oath to protect and defend the United States Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

While we are being given a mega dose of international terror news on all of the television stations and all of the online news outlets (just in time for the citizenry to beg for the funding of the Department of Homeland Security, so that we can all be “safe”), I wonder if any of our legislators understand that “words” – undecipherable, convoluted, legalistic multitudinous words that create unaccountable power for some and crushing regulations for others  – can be just as deadly an enemy to the Constitution (and our security) as are traitors, thieves and terrorists.

Honorable Representative David Trott – MIA

Standard

I have been emailing and phone calling our Honorable Representative David Trott (representing Michigan’s 11th congressional district) and his office for over two months now, asking for a meeting to which he agreed to hold prior to his swearing in ceremony.

Maybe now that he is a duly sworn-in representative from the great State of Michigan, he is just too busy to meet with his concerned constituents.  I wonder?

I noticed that according to Conservative Review, he has a 67 percent conservative rating, which isn’t good considering the fact that he has only been in office for 2 months and the rating is only based upon three votes. https://www.conservativereview.com

Worse than that, the one vote that Conservative Review is giving him a “thumbs up” for is the terribly convoluted HR 240 that funds the terribly unconstitutional Department of Homeland Security.

That said, I do have some good news, and reason to thank Honorable Representative David Trott because on February 9, 2015, he did sign on to the Audit the Fed bill introduced by Kentucky’s 4th District Congressman Thomas Massie. http://massie.house.gov/press-release/press-release-us-representative-massie-introduces-bill-audit-federal-reserve

I still want my special Valentine’s Day wish to have our meeting scheduled soon.

Please call Rep. Trott’s office at 1 (202) 225-8171 and ask his Chief of Staff Jennifer Gorski just when Honorable Representative David Trott plans on meeting with Janice Daniels and her brave group of concerned constituents!

Thanks for doing your part to hold our representative to his Oath of Office, to his word and to his legislative blueprint.

… and, Happy Valentine’s Day xxoo

It’s Not Just Unlawful, It’s Downright Awful

Standard

It is easy to imagine, but impossible to neglect or accept the fact that in 2015, nefarious government forces continue working overtime to try to silence the truth about taxation, income and justice.  So what’s new?

Remember, it was just 52 short years ago, when from a jail in Birmingham, Alabama, on April 16, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. penned the famous words, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

http://www.africa.upenn.edu/Articles_Gen/Letter_Birmingham.html

Lest you think me too cynical, and that I speak only of smoke-filled rooms, in far off places, where the insatiable lust for power breeds an unspeakable level of corruption, consider the case of Mrs. Doreen Hendrickson, who lives right here in Oakland County, Michigan.

Doreen is facing a sentencing hearing, set for April 9, 2015, in the downtown Detroit courtroom of federal Judge Victoria Roberts that could put her in prison for up to two years.  Two years … for what, you ask?  I contend that it is not for what she has done, but for to whom she is married.

You see Doreen’s husband Pete Hendrickson has written a book called Cracking the Code – the Fascinating Truth about Taxation in America.

http://losthorizons.com/Cracking_the_Code.htm

If you think “the government” is having trouble finding funds to fix our roads (a constitutionally granted government power), and to keep the lifestyle that they have grown accustom to, as well as feed the dependency class that guarantees their power (two unlawful and downright awful power grabs), just think of how much trouble they would have if We The People truly understood that we do not owe “federal” or “state” income taxes on our private sector earnings and we therefore demanded a refund of all of our money that has been unlawfully and awfully confiscated through the years.

There are a couple of simple guarantees that are enshrined in the Bill of Rights to the United States Constitution,  such as the Right to free speech, to free expression of religion, to the protection of your person and your effects, and for the clear protection of your property from burdensome taxes.

Remember, America was founded to escape the heavy hand of taxation exactly because history was, is and always will be replete with tyrants who will use whatever means that they are allowed to get away with to enrich themselves and their cronies.  It’s just flat out human nature.

That’s precisely why we have a constitution that specifically limits the actions of powerful people (aka the government).

As one of the “little people” will you stand up for Liberty and Justice for All, shout out “not under my watch,” purchase Pete Hendrickson’s book, and join us as we overcrowd Judge Victoria Roberts’ Detroit courtroom on April 9, 2015 at 10:30 am at the Theodore Levin US Courhouse located at 231 W. Lafayette Blvd., Detroit, MI 48226? NOTE:  TIME CHANGED TO NOON – same date, same location.

If you won’t buy the book or join us in court, you might well be the next one who will be forced to bow to the insidious, slippery, ever-present tyranny of the well-placed few.

The choice is yours … Freedom is not free, injustice to one truly is injustice to all, and besides you might just need a day off six days before tax day, April 15, 2015.
