Jimmy Carter: The U.S. Is an “Oligarchy With Unlimited Political Bribery”

Former president Jimmy Carter said Tuesday on the nationally syndicated radio show the Thom Hartmann Program that the United States is now an “oligarchy” in which “unlimited political bribery” has created “a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors.” Both Democrats and Republicans, Carter said, “look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves.”

Carter was responding to a question from Hartmann about recent Supreme Court decisions on campaign financing like Citizens United.

Transcript:

HARTMANN: Our Supreme Court has now said, “unlimited money in politics.” It seems like a violation of principles of democracy. … Your thoughts on that?

CARTER: It violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system. Now it’s just an oligarchy, with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or to elect the president. And the same thing applies to governors and U.S. senators and congress members. So now we’ve just seen a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect and sometimes get favors for themselves after the election’s over. … The incumbents, Democrats and Republicans, look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves. Somebody’s who’s already in Congress has a lot more to sell to an avid contributor than somebody who’s just a challenger.

I’ve added Carter’s statement to this list of politicians acknowledging that money controls politics. Please let me know if you have other good examples.

“The impeachment hoax
was initiated because of
Trump’s determination
to fully expose
CROWDSTRIKEgate.
That radioactive scandal
perpetrated by CrowdStrike
and the DNC leadership
is so dangerous to the
Democrat Party they
desperately started the
impeachment inquiry.
Now Trump really wants
that epic fraud investigated
because his presidency
depends upon it.”
— Intelligence Analyst & Former U.S. Military Officer
State of the Nation

Truly, it doesn’t get anymore explosive than CROWDSTRIKEgate!

CONFIRMED: DNC paid the ‘Russian’ founder of CrowdStrike to hack its server so it could be blamed on Russia!
What, pray tell, could be more radioactive than the fact that CrowdStrike was specifically hired by the Democrat National Committee to plant fake evidence on the DNC servers. The cyber-perps deceitfully used Russian digital signatures in order to falsely blame Russia for the election hack that never even occurred … except that it did and it was actually conducted by CrowdStrike.

Screen-Shot-2019-10-17-at-6-31-00-AM

Wow … what a tangled web, indeed … and incredibly reckless scandal ! ! !

How did Deep State ever think they could get away with such a conspiratorial hoax?

Especially with President Trump using his Twitter account to expose the entire CIA-directed black operation?

“Fancy Bear”
____________________________________________________________________________
Why Crowdstrike’s Russian Hacking Story Fell Apart – Say Hello to Fancy Bear
____________________________________________________________________________
This is exactly why they named the CrowdStrike-implemented psyop “Fancy Bear”.

The real perps behind the non-existent Russian hack wanted the American people to believe that CrowdStrike was a Russian bear-killing cybersecurity firm, which they aren’t.

Let’s be clear, the single best way for Trump to completely exonerate himself of even the slightest appearance of ‘Russian collusion’ is to prove that the Democrats falsified the evidence in the first place, WHICH THEY DID.

Why else would the DNC continually refuse to hand over their severs to the FBI so that the necessary forensic analysis could be conducted?!?!

Why else would the CEO of CrowdStrike — Dmitri Alperovitch — the “Russian-born American computer security industry executive … and co-founder and chief technology officer of CrowdStrike” name his bogus hacker-hunting operation “Fancy Bear” except to implicate the Kremlin for a hack that CrowdStrike pulled off?

CROWDSTRIKEgate
Yes, the back story to this unparalleled Democrat scandal is long and complicated, convoluted and full of intrigue. The following exposé breaks it all down in a way that every voter ought to understand before November 3, 2020.
______________________________________________________________________________
DNC Russian Hackers Found!
______________________________________________________________________________
Let’s face it: the Democrats will do anything to overturn the 2016 election result. These serial traitors to the Republic are so overwhelmed by Trump derangement syndrome that they will use any means required to take down Trump.

Well, CROWDSTRIKEgate shows just how far these hopelessly crazy communists will go.

When even a casual observer takes a closer look at all the evidence — scientific, circumstantial and anecdotal — it’s clear that the Democrats contrived an extraordinarily absurd and fictitious story to launch this scandal. In other words, “Fancy Bear” is really “Fanciful Bear”.

Whereas Dimity Alperovitch is really Russian by birth and ancestry, he was employed by the C.I.A and NSA to carry out espionage and counterespionage operations similar to their Russian hack op. And, here’s the indisputable timeline that proves it:
Fancy Frauds, Bogus Bears & Malware Mimicry?

IMPEACHMENTgate
Which brings us to the true reasons behind IMPEACHMENTgate. See IMPEACHMENTgate: The Scandal Is Much Worse & Plot Much Thicker Than Anyone Knows

The Democrats know that Trump is not only on to them, he’s on a mission to expose the entire treasonous scandal.

What that really means is that it’s all-out war between Team Trump and Deep State.

See:
Deep State Attempts Yet Another Coup in Broad Daylight, Evidence Proves Treason and a Complex Criminal Conspiracy

This is it folks. The final battle in American politics is being played out between now and Election Day 2020.

What’s at stake is EVERYTHING … for both sides of the political aisle. It’s a winner take all proposition.

Try THIS on Your Car and You’ll Never Need to Wax it Again! (See Video)
That’s why the Democrats concocted out of thin air the patently false allegations that were used to trigger the impeachment inquiry.

That’s why the fake UKRAINEgate was immediately blown up by the CIA’s Mockingbird Media and has not relented despite the lack of any evidence whatsoever. As follows:

UKRAINEgate: CIA black op, Deep State psyop, Democrat coup, MSM distraction, Israeli espionage, Trump sting, or all 6?

Not only that, but seditious co-conspirators Pelosi and Schiff have even refused to present the so-called CIA ‘whistleblower’ whose ridiculous report was obviously fabricated to trigger the impeachment process.

See:
SOFT COUP IN PROGRESS: Deep State Democrats Staged Fake ‘Whistleblower’ Complaint to Orchestrate Impeachment Hoax
________________________________________________________________________________

KEY POINT: As always, there’s a much deeper and broader back story to CROWDSTRIKEgate. This particular video accurately connects so many dots it boggles the mind:
Super-sleuth drops more radioactive intel in 22 minutes than the entire Alt Media does in a month!

Take a close look at this CrowdStrike piece taken from their website. Notice the heavy anti-Russian meming as well as the crucial dates. Everything points to a joint CIA-Madison Ave venture to further smear Russia.

Conclusion
Both Deep State and the entire Democrat Party are in extreme desperation mode.

Yes, they are facing the multifarious consequences associated with:
UKRAINEgate
BIDENgate
IMPEACHMENTgate
WHISTLEBLOWERgate,
but it’s really
CROWDSTRIKEgate
that has the highly explosive potential to destroy the thoroughly corrupt and criminal Democrat Party forever.

The stark reality is that, once the CrowdStrike crime wave is disclosed to the American people, the Democrats are history—FOR REAL!

This is precisely why Deep State has put the craziest of all the crazies — Schiff, Pelosi, Nadler, Schumer, Newsom, DeBlasio, etc. in charge of their insane asylum at this pivotal point during their historic crash and burn. These bad actors (very bad by the looks of Shifty Schiff in every interview) were specifically chosen because of how profoundly compromised each of them is.

Try This Egyptian Copper Secret! You’ll Never Believe What It Does Until You See the Blood Video!
Just how compromised?

This compromised:
PEDOGATE: Pandora’s Box Has Been Opened for Deep State and the C.I.A.

Let’s also take a much closer look at Nasty Nancy’s well-hidden history here: COUP-IN-PROGRESS: Pelosi, the Mafia and the Black Nobility.

Bottom Line: This rapidly intensifying 3rd Millennium “War of the Titans” is gonna get hot—hotter, in fact, than either the Civil War or American Revolution.

Therefore, the best thing the Patriot Movement can do is to disseminate this incriminating information so that the body politic is totally saturated with it. The more folks who are informed, the greater the likelihood that the collective consciousness will expand sufficiently to prevent a national cataclysm. Wide circulation of this critical material can de-escalate this decisive conflict as much as anything.

A LOT of prayer for the protection and focused intention for the continuity of the American Republic would greatly help as well.

Facebook Condones Violence Against ‘Dangerous Individuals’ Before Reversing Itself.
Facebook’s latest policy update supported violence against Paul Joseph Watson and Alex Jones.

By Ian Miles Cheong

Facebook Condones Violence Against ‘Dangerous Individuals’ Before Reversing Itself.


July 12, 2019

Facebook issued, and later deleted, a new policy stating its position supporting violence against banned figures like Paul Joseph Watson and Alex Jones, both of whom have been banned from the platform.

The update went live on the site’s Community Standards page before being retracted, following widespread online backlash.

The update read:
“Do not post: Threats that could lead to death (and other forms of high-severity violence) of any target(s) where threat is defined as any of the following:
Statements of intent to commit high-severity violence; or
Calls for high-severity violence (unless the target is an organization
or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organizations
policy),
or is described as having carried out violent crimes or sexual offenses, wherein criminal/predator status has been established by media reports, market knowledge of news event, etc.” (Emphasis added).

In May, Facebook issued bans for a number of conservative political pundits including Paul Joseph Watson, whom they designated a “dangerous individual.”

“[It] is now “progressive” to allow a handful of corporate monopolists to control who has free speech and what opinions they can communicate,” wrote Watson of his ban. “What was the point of the trials of humanity over the past 300 years if we were just going to end up with some little nerds in California dictating the terms of human civilization to us from behind their MacBook screens?”
pjw
Paul Joseph Watson

With the recent update, Facebook ostensibly deemed it permissible for its users to issue threats against Watson and other “dangerous individuals,” who have been cast alongside ISIS and other terrorist organizations, some of which continue to maintain large presences on the platform, including jihadist organizations like Hezbollah and Boko Haram, and the left-wing Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). Pages dedicated to these organizations can be easily found by typing their names into Facebook’s built-in search engine.

“The largest social media company in the world with over 2 billion users literally says its fine to incite violence against me, despite this being illegal. They are painting a target on my back.” – Paul Joseph Watson

As Watson says, violent threats issued against him on the platform are still considered illegal under U.K. law regardless of Facebook’s stance on the matter.

“The largest social media company in the world with over 2 billion users literally says its fine to incite violence against me, despite this being illegal,” he wrote. “They are painting a target on my back.”

Following a backlash on social media, Facebook has modified the policy update. The company issued a statement to explain that the language it previously used was “imprecise.”

“The language we previously used to describe our policies against violence and incitement was imprecise. We have since replaced it to more clearly explain the policy and underlying rationale,” Facebook stated. “In some cases, we see aspirational or conditional threats directed at terrorists and other violent actors (e.g. Terrorists deserve to be killed), and we deem those non credible absent specific evidence to the contrary.”

It’s worth noting that in addition to its tacit support of violence against “Dangerous Individuals,” the company also deemed it acceptable to threaten anyone “described as having carried out violent crimes or sexual offenses, wherein criminal/predator status has been established by media reports.”

In other words, if you’ve been judged guilty in the court of public opinion, you’re fair game.

A Military Response

State of the Nation
“President Trump is facing a full-blown coup d’état, sooner or later.
The treasonous co-conspirators are setting up the country so as to
spring into action on several fronts. When they execute the final
putsch will be determined more by sheer desperation than anything
else. They really don’t want to overthrow Trump violently, but will
eventually feel the absolute necessity to do so. This will be their only
way to stay out of prison. Here’s the real problem for the POTUS:
He can only trigger a military solution when all of his ducks are in a
row. Should Trump act prematurely, his success will be put in jeopardy.
Should he act too late, his administration will be in grave danger.”

— Former U.S. Military Officer and Intelligence Analyst

For those who are unaware, the Trump administration has been the target of a slow motion coup d’état sometimes referred to as the Purple Revolution.

BEWARE: The Purple Revolution Comes To America…
…Courtesy of George Soros, the Clinton Crime Family, and the Obama Administration

Most of the leaders of this stealthy insurrection are unknown and working deep within the U.S. Intelligence Community. Others, such as former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Director of the National Security Agency, Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence, and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Michael Hayden, as well as former CIA Deputy Director and Acting Director Michael Morell are highly visible leaders of the coup faction.

However, it is the countless agents of Deep State who populate the Zio-Anglo-American Intelligence Community that pose the real problem. In this regard, it’s virtually impossible to determine who is really serving the POTUS, and who is working against him. Because the U.S. intelligence agencies have been systematically ponerized since day one by the C.I.A., who and what is not effectively owned and operated by The Company, as it’s known by spooks everywhere.

The C.I.A. Literally Controls EVERYTHING … Even Deep State

Inasmuch as the C.I.A. completely controls the Mainstream Media (MSM), they have conscripted all of the largest news outlets to attack Trump 24/7. Likewise, the C.I.A. has enlisted the aid of every major globalist organization in the world to take down Trump. You name them: the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group and the Trilateral Commission. The Committee of 300, The Royal Institute of International Affairs and the United Nations. The reality is that the full weight of the all-powerful Round Table is stacked heavily against the Trump Administration.
What’s the point?

Add to the truncated list of power-players above all the secret societies and think tanks, NGOs (esp. Soros-funded) and Fortune 500 Companies, and the challenges become even more formidable. Particularly when you consider the pervasive influence of Silicon Valley and Hollywood that is squarely aimed against him, does Trump’s predicament come into sharp relief.

The salient point is that the entire System has assumed an extremely aggressive posture toward the POTUS. Hence, Trump is compelled to formulate a counter-coup game plan that is infallible. He has absolutely NO wiggle room between his rock and hard place. And, there is no precedent for him to consider for comparison’s sake. History provides absolutely no parallel to Trump’s plight in 2017/2018 on planet Earth. (The Internet has created a whole new universe known as cyberspace where this war is really being fought.)

What Team Trump does have is Sun Tzu’s classic — The Art of War — to consult. There’s no question that The Donald is regularly applying some of the most effective strategies and tactics imparted by that ancient Chinese military treatise. For example:
‘If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him.’
— Looks like the Trump playbook has borrowed from Sun Tzu

However, in order to decisively take down the Deep State and terminate the Central Intelligence Agency, Trump will have to think through every single part of what will have to be a perfectly controlled demolition. This can only be achieved by utilizing all 5 branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Why have there been no arrests?

Many throughout the truth movement (and especially the Trump movement) have questioned the lack of arrests of known traitors. Everyone now knows who has committed acts of naked treason against the American Republic. And, yet, no one has been taken into custody or even indicted. Many are also aware of the horrific crimes being committed regularly against our children by the same bad actors. And in Washington, DC, no less!

PIZZAGATE: A Special Report on the Washington, D.C. Pedophilia Scandal

Any such move – mass arrest of the traitors – can only be conducted when “everything is in good order” since it will immediately precipitate a severe reaction from Deep State. Their (TPTB) predictable and overwhelming self-protective response could range from anything to anything. Yeah, that’s just how volatile and precarious this situation has become, and it’s rapidly intensifying by the week.

The practical reality is that the longer that Trump is in the Oval Office, the more time he has to acquire the necessary intelligence on every single conspirator who is participating in the Purple Revolution, past and present. With this vital data, he is able to simultaneously arrest all the plotters and decision-makers, as well as the numerous insurrectionists on the ground and their mid-level handlers.
Extreme polarity precludes a political solution

The entire Democratic Party (especially the DNC); the Soroses, Clintons, Obamas, Bidens and Podestas; the sultans of Silicon Valley; the Hollywood moguls; the East Coast intelligentsia; the MSM organs of propaganda; as well as many rogue elements in the C.I.A. basically pushed this situation beyond the point of no return. All of these collaborators have worked assiduously to cultivate an environment of “Us versus Them”— nationwide.

By perfecting the dark arts of identity politics and the cult of personality (e.g. Obama and Hillary), they succeeded in dividing the body politic as never before. The myriad social justice warriors have likewise exploited the vulnerable demographics to the point where the various wedge issues forever divide the American people. As a result, there appears to be no common ground to stand on anymore and, therefore, no space for reconciliation.
Civil war must be avoided

The grim reality is that the nation now finds itself in the midst of a civil war. Very few are aware of the gravity of the current state of affairs, but that’s where we really are. The cold phase always pre-dates the hot one. Nonetheless, if bold measures are not taken with all deliberate speed when necessary, there will soon come a time when the hot phase will rear its ugly head. The truth be told, the Las Vegas mass shooting was actually a stealth attack on the patriot movement by the Left. Country & Western music festivals are basically congregations for the Right. Those Route 91 HARVEST concert-goers were ambushed in cold blood.

For the good of the Republic, President Trump will be compelled to take action against the many traitors throughout the U.S. Federal Government, state governments and municipal governments. Whenever the barbarians are already inside the gate as they are now, there is only one alternative; they must be exposed and prosecuted for their crimes against the American people. Toward that end, Trump will be required to shut down the existing MSM (and take them over) among implementing several other radical initiatives which deny support (both material and moral) to the seditious criminal activity of these Bolsheviks.

There is no other way to tame a Bolshevik than to bust them upside the head with a four by four. That’s the only language they understand, as Black Lives Matter and AntiFa have clearly demonstrated. The liberals have become ultra-liberal, the lefties have transformed into left-wing extremists, and progressives have morphed into hyper-progressivism so that there is no more middle ground—anywhere.

Cultural Marxism must be defeated

Those blue states that have Democrat-dominated statehouses, and big cities with Democratic mayors and city councils, provide graphic examples of where things have gone. When the once great state of California has gone to hell in a handbasket, you know the writing is on the wall for the United States of America…unless the inexorable advancement of Cultural Marxism is short-circuited post haste. Only the POTUS can do that in the manner required.

Many have now come to their senses and understood that the USA is in serious trouble. The US government is totally dysfunctional, Corporate America is poised to experience a replay of the recent Great Recession, and civil society collapses by the day. All of these developments are directly due to the unrelenting promotion of Cultural Marxism by the power elite. They know that their place at the very top is secure when American society has sufficiently eroded, order has been replaced by chaos, and the economy is unstable.

Trump’s most difficult challenge will be to ferret out those in positions of authority and influence who laud the nation’s incremental metamorphosis into a modern-day “Sodom and Gomorrah”. This extremely thorny and knotty obstacle alone appears to be insurmountable. And it just may be. Nevertheless, the only way through this period is to effectuate a sweeping change in leadership across the board. Only in this way can the Cultural Marxists be permanently removed from power.

The following article provides important background, the understanding of which is integral to reversing this perilous trend. How Cultural Marxism was used to create an American “Sodom and Gomorrah”

Special Note:
There is only one way that President Trump can push the button on a military solution. There must be a critical mass of law-abiding patriots who stand solidly behind him. Whereas the agents of Deep State still control and/or influence much of the national security apparatus, levers of government and judicial machinery after 8 years of Obama stacking the deck, the Right controls the land. The rural country of America is as red as Georgia red clay, so the food supply and its transportation (Trump truckers) are exclusively controlled by the Right. They also comprise a great majority of military, ex-military and militiamen, as well as the police and sheriffs most of whom are also gun owners and hunters. The crucial point is that, as Commander-in-Chief, Trump not only commands the Armed Forces directly, he also exerts much influence on those patriots who will show up for battle should it ever come to that. The C.I.A. apparently underestimated, to a great degree, just how much leverage the POTUS really has, specifically a populist president who is also a real nationalist. As they say in the Deep South, whoever has the biggest dog, wins the fight. And there ain’t a bigger DOG inside the Beltway than Donald J. Trump.
Pizzagate & Pedogate

Trump has two trump cards that he’s holding close to the vest.

Each of them provides the one-two punch necessary to take down the NWO globalist cabal, both at home and abroad.

Pizzagate will take down the Washington political establishment, corrupt Democrats and Republicans alike. Pedogate will overthrow the exceedingly powerful forces that are projected from London and Rome, Brussels and Paris, Tel Aviv and Riyadh. The almighty Black Nobility, in particular, will be weakened sufficiently so that Operation Gladio can be rendered ineffectual.

Once this all-pervasive control mechanism — Pedogate — is completely dismantled, Presidents Trump and Putin will be able to jointly pursue the common goals they so desire. However, it is D.C.’s own Pizzagate that will give Trump the leverage required to demolish Deep State and “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds”. PEDOGATE: Pandora’s Box Has Been Opened for Deep State and the C.I.A.

Perhaps the only legal context in which both Pizzagate and Pedogate can be prosecuted is the Uniform Code of Military Justice. That’s because the Criminal Justice System, and particularly the judiciary, are mainly made up of dyed-in-the-wool Democrats. Hence, the absolute necessity for military tribunals to be formed to handle the imperative prosecutions that will incarcerate the prime movers of the Purple Revolution. Subsequently, a national Truth and Reconciliation Commission can be established to judiciously process the multi-decade crime spree perpetrated by the wealthy and political elites on We the People.

KEY POINT: Perhaps the Guantanamo Bay detention camp was really built for the many high-level American officials and politicians who have betrayed their country over decades. This is why the only solution for Team Trump is a military one. Those leaders, who have been relentlessly controlled and manipulated by way of Pizzagate and Pedogate, can only be incarcerated in tightly guarded military prison; otherwise, they will be murdered with great haste. The true perps behind the Pedogate control mechanism will stop at nothing to destroy the evidence, and especially to eliminate the witnesses. After all, the Clintons and Obamas, Bushes and Bidens are merely low-level and expendable pawns in a very dangerous and deadly game.
Conclusion

President John F. Kennedy said it best:

State of the Nation
November 29, 2017

Editor’s Note

PEOPLE OF AMERICA: In the absence of a profound and fundamental transformation of American society, the USA will continue its descent into the abyss of Cultural Marxism. The cultural elites are hellbent on preserving their hard-fought “Sodom and Gomorrah”. They will not give up their utter depravity easily and will clutch it until their dying breath. Therefore, everyone is highly encouraged to do their part to resist the moral depredations which flow from Cultural Marxism—an inherently flawed and degrading philosophy of living. All that has to be done is to starve the BEAST. If you don’t feed it, it will die.
“When one has nothing else to lose,
the predator becomes the prey.”

Foolish Gun Owners HELP Government with Illegal Gun Registration Scheme

By Doug Book, editor

Published a year ago on “Coach is Right,” this is a story which bears repeating

The left will do anything to abolish the private ownership of firearms. And the emphasis is onanything.  After all, politicians cannot safely exercise absolute, uncontested authority over an armed public. And the majority of our nation’s ruling class–yes, Republicans included–yearn for such power; in part because it will bring an end to those annoying constitutional rights which prevent lawmakers implementing what they “know to be best,” but mostly because these self-infatuated mirror-gazers believe dictatorial authority to be their due.

The question is, how can it be accomplished? How can more than 300 million firearms be separated from an estimated 100 million owners?

With some it will be easy. When Connecticut passed into law its knee-jerk response to the 2012, Newtown murders, some 50,000 “Assault Weapon” owners dashed to the nearest police station, eager to be among the first to sign away their freedom by registering their rifles with Governor Malloy. Courageous custodians of liberty such as these will be a snap to deal with when it comes time to confiscate their-or more properly, the State’s-property.

But what of the estimated 300,000-400,000 Constitution State owners of black rifles who refuse to play toadie to a would-be monarch? How can Big Brother intimidate these or other American gun owners—for example the estimated 1 million New Yorkers who have defied the state’s Safe Act– into registering their firearms so that the coming end-game of confiscation might be facilitated? Isn’t the outright use of force likely to result in that shooting war we’ve heard so much about?

Well, not if a majority of Americans follow the example set by “Assault Weapon” owners in Maryland and Virginia.

During the 2002 killing spree by the “D.C. Snipers,” police recovered .223 caliber shell casings from the scene of one of the murders. With the necessary assistance of the ATF, local and state police searched the sales records of gun stores in Maryland and Virginia, creating an inventory of those who purchased rifles which fire .223 caliber ammunition.

Information including name, address, rifle description and serial number were taken from the gun sales records (Form #4473) which the ATF demands gun store owners maintain. Police knocked on the door of every owner, asking that they be permitted to take their rifle “downtown” in order to fire it and prove their innocence!

As the AmmoLand site puts it, “With a simple ‘Please may we have your rifle…’ to prove your innocence, the police were not only given the owner’s registered sale 4473 rifle(s) but in many cases the citizens had other .223 caliber rifles that were NOT on the new purchased 4473 forms and many of these guns were also voluntarily offered up by the cooperating owners to the police. And all it took was a simple   “‘please.’”

“Most” of the rifles were returned. Of all the gun owners contacted by police, fewer than 3% refused to hand over their firearms. When officers decided to use a little “we’ll get a court order” intimidation, these owners said go right ahead. 

According to the article, no court orders were obtained. Not one.

Before you conclude that gun owners in Maryland and Virginia are just unusually stupid, cowardly or accommodating, the same thing happened in Oklahoma. When two children were shot to death with a .40 caliber pistol, area gun stores were robbed of their .40 caliber pistol sales records.

By the way, none of the expended “test” shells or bullets from these weapons were returned to rifle owners. So the states—and you can bet, the federal government—have a complete record of the “fingerprints” associated with these firearms, to be used if a bullet or shell should turn up at a crime scene. Of course this means that countless weapons and their owners have been catalogued as part of a gun registration scheme. It is a compilation of information which is strictly illegal; just as it was illegal for police or the ATF to take part in the Maryland, Virginia and Oklahoma, Form 4473 fishing expeditions.

Of course some may be confident that their government is far too honorable to save this information for the purpose of confiscating firearms from the law abiding at some point in the future. These individuals will believe that Big Brother has discarded the entire stockpile of illegally collected, gun owner/firearm “fingerprint” information.

Senate advances fast-track trade bill for Obama

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and President Barack Obama
WASHINGTON – The Republican-dominated Senate has given President Obama what he wants: so-called “fast-track” authority to negotiate massive trade deals with other countries, cut Congress out of the negotiations and limit lawmakers’ participation to a simple yes or no vote when such treaties are concluded.

A cloture vote to cut off debate needed 60 votes to pass. It received exactly 60 yes votes, with 37 opposed, meaning final passage of the Trade Promotion Authority, or TPA, is now just a formality.


The bill squeaked by in the House last week by vote of 218 to 208 and will soon go to the president’s desk to be signed into law.

Opponents of the deal, led by Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., were not quite able to round up the no votes needed, even though Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, changed his vote to a no, after voting yes four weeks ago.

In an op-ed published Tuesday, Cruz explained that, while he believes free trade is good for America, much had come to light since his first vote.

“TPA in this Congress has become enmeshed in corrupt Washington backroom deal-making, along with serious concerns that it would open up the potential for sweeping changes in our laws that trade agreements typically do not include.

“Despite the administration’s public assurances that it was not negotiating on immigration, several chapters of the TiSA (Trade in Services Agreement) draft posted online explicitly contained potential changes in federal immigration law. TPA would cover TiSA, and therefore these changes would presumably be subject to fast-track.

“Second, TPA’s progress through the House and Senate appears to have been made possible by secret deals between Republican leadership and the Democrats.”

One of those deals appeared to be a promise to bring up for a vote a re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank before its charter expires at the end of the month. It is an institution favored by many Democrats and establishment Republicans.

“The Ex-Im Bank is a classic example of corporate welfare,” wrote Cruz. “It is cronyism at its worst, with U.S. taxpayers guaranteeing billions of dollars in loans for sketchy buyers in foreign nations. Ex-Im is scheduled to wind down on June 30. But powerful lobbyists in Washington want to keep the money flowing.”

Opposition to the deal made for strange bedfellows. Joining the conservatives Cruz, Sessions and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, were ultra-leftists Sens. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., Al Franken, D-Minn., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

The House technically did pass the Trade Promotion Authority, or TPA, bill twice. But in order to ensure ultimate passage, a controversial provision was dropped the second time, one that was originally included in the Senate version of the bill. It was called Trade Adjustment Assistance, or TAA, which would have provided money to workers who lose their jobs as a result of foreign trade.

Since the Senate and the House had not passed the same version of TPA, it could not go to the president for his signature without changes.

TPA then went back to Senate, where the TAA provision was dropped from its version, in order to match the House bill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, have both vowed to revive votes on TAA this week.

Rank and file Democrats and Republicans both opposed TAA, but for opposite reasons: Democrats wanted the assistance extended to public-sector workers, while conservatives wanted the provision eliminated entirely as an unnecessary welfare measure in a bill supposedly designed to create jobs.

But numerous Democrats and Republican have opposed TPA for the same reason: it would cut Congress out of negotiations.

Many Democrats are also concerned massive trade deals would lower wages and cost American jobs, while a number of Republicans are concerned such agreements would bind the U.S. to the rulings of international bodies outside the control of American law.

Sessions, who has been leading the charge against TPA, is alarmed it would create an international legal body akin to the European Union, one that would have vast powers to change U.S. law, outside of the control of Congress.

He has said one effect would be the bypassing of U.S. immigration laws, greatly increasing the number of foreign workers allowed into the country, costing Americans jobs and depressing wages.

Sessions penned an open letter on Sunday that claimed reams of new information have been exposed since the Senate last voted on TPA more than four weeks ago, including “information that was either not known or understood when the vote was held.”

Much of that information regards the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, a monumental trade deal between the U.S. and Pacific Rim nations that would almost certainly be passed into law, as would all “fast-tracked” trade deals, should TPA become law.

Sessions listed the problems:

TPP includes the administration’s pledge to impose “environmental governance.”
TPP would lead to the formation of a new Pacific Union, “an enduring, self-governing political entity with vast regulatory power. Yet fast-track – which has led without fail to the adoption of every covered agreement since its inception – would rush it through with less legislative scrutiny than a Post Office reform bill.”
“The president has refused to answer the most simple but crucial questions about how he plans to use fast-track powers. He will not even answer whether he believes his plan will increase or reduce the trade deficit, increase or reduce manufacturing jobs, or increase or reduce wages.”
“In addition to the TPP are the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA). Together they encompass three-fourths of the world economy, and up to ninety percent of the world economy when including countries whose membership is being courted.”
“The texts of TTIP and TiSA remain completely secret –unreviewable by lawmakers themselves – yet fast-track would authorize the executive to sign them before Congress votes.”
“The president would send Congress legislation to change U.S. law to comport with these new agreements, legislation which cannot be amended, which senators cannot filibuster, cannot receive a two-thirds treaty vote, and cannot be debated for more than 20 hours.”
“The Ways and Means Committee has also now conceded that, as an unprecedented ‘Living Agreement,’ the union could change its structure, rules, regulations and enforcement mechanisms after final ratification – a dangerous and unjustifiable power.”
“TiSA would seek foreign worker mobility among 50 nations, including between the United States, Turkey and Pakistan.”
Sessions issued this statement Tuesday after the Senate voted to advance fast-track executive authority:

Americans increasingly believe that their country isn’t serving its own citizens. They need look no further than a bipartisan vote of Congress that will transfer congressional power to the Executive Branch and, in turn, to a transnational Pacific Union and the global interests who will help write its rules.

The same routine plays out over and again. We are told a massive bill must be passed, all the business lobbyists and leaders tell us how grand it will be, but that it must be rushed through before the voters spoil the plan. As with Obamacare and the Gang of Eight, the politicians meet with the consultants to craft the talking points—not based on what the bill actually does, but what they hope people will believe it does. And when ordinary Americans who never asked for the plan, who don’t want the plan, who want no part of the plan, resist, they are scorned, mocked, and heaped with condescension.

Washington broke arms and heads to get that 60th vote—not one to spare—to impose on the American people a plan which imperils their jobs, wages, and control over their own affairs. It is remarkable that so much energy has been expended on advancing the things Americans oppose, and preventing the things Americans want.

For instance: thousands of loyal Americans have been laid off and forced to train the foreign workers brought in to fill their jobs—at Disney, at Southern California Edison, across the country. Does Washington rush to their defense? No, the politicians and the lobbyists rush to move legislation that would double or triple the very program responsible for replacing them.

This ‘econometarian’ ideology holds that if a company can increase its bottom line —whether by insourcing foreign workers or outsourcing production—then it’s always a win, never a downside.

President Obama, and allies in Congress, have won this fast-track vote. But, in exchange, they may find that they are losing something far greater: the trust of the American people. Americans have a fundamental, decent, and just demand: that the people they elect defend their interests. And every issue to come before us in the coming months will have to pass this test: does this strengthen, or weaken, the position of the everyday, loyal American citizen?
