The 4th Amendment Violations Will Continue Until Morale Improves

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Simon Black of Sovereign Man blog,

For some, it’s hard to even fathom... as if the headlines were ripped from the Onion instead of Atlas Shrugged or 1984:

* NSA Is Wired Into Top Internet Companies’ Servers, Including Google and Facebook

 

* NSA reportedly collecting phone records of millions

 

* Former NSA head defends agency reportedly spying on millions of Americans

 

* US gov’t defends NSA surveillance, slams ‘reprehensible’ journalists

Even more, just within the last few weeks we’ve seen the Justice Department confiscating news reporter phone records... the IRS caught bullying political opposition groups... and now this.

It should be as plain as day at this point. Yet some people still have a hard time understanding that they’re living under an oppressive, destructive, unaccountable government.

Most other cultures get it. If you go to Argentina, Vietnam, Italy, or China, people there have absolutely no trust or confidence in their governments.

It’s something that’s 'almost' uniquely American - a lifetime of steady, bombastic propaganda that inculcates a deep belief that our system is the ‘best’.

And, even in the face of such overwhelming evidence, it’s still hard for people to break from this programming and acknowledge that their government is just as corrupt as Mexico’s... albeit slightly more sophisticated.

The politicians running the nation are sociopathic criminals, plain and simple. If you or I were to tap people’s phones or hack their Facebook accounts, or use our authority to bully opposition groups, we would be tossed in the slammer in no time… and branded by the media as moral delinquents.

Yet politicians get away with it. They even have prominent members of the press championing their criminality, like this quote from Forbes today:

“this is in fact what governments are supposed to do so I’m at something of a loss in understanding why people seem to be getting so outraged about it.”

The simple reason is because the system is a total failure.

In the ‘free world’, society is based on a principle that a tiny elite should have the power to kill. To steal. To wage war. To debase the currency. To deprive certain people of freedom. All in their sole discretion. And for the good of everyone else.

We’re just supposed to trust them to be good guys and be proficient at their jobs. And in case they happen to completely screw it up and wreck the nation, they get a pass.

It’s a completely absurd. We’re ruled by criminals, plain and simple.

This is a hard lesson for an entire society to learn, but perhaps the most important.

Unfortunately, the second lesson is even harder: that there’s absolutely nothing we can do about it.

We’ve also been led to believe that direct democracy and grassroots movements can be a force for change. Yet it rarely, if ever, happens.

Short of outright revolution, the system isn’t going to change. It has to completely crash... and hit rock bottom... before it can be rebuilt. And we’re still a loooong way off from that.

Like ancient Rome before, the Land of the Free can look forward to being governed by a long series of criminals in the foreseeable future, notwithstanding the occasional sage.

Nations rise and fall. This cycle is inevitable. And history shows that the world’s most dominant nation typically has a long, grinding decline. It’s going to take a while.

That’s why, instead of trying to change the system, it’s so important to invest time, energy, and capital in the things that set up you and your family for maximum freedom and prosperity.

You can’t stop a speeding train by standing in front of it. You just want to make sure you’re not on it as it heads towards the cliff.

Since everything is intercepted and analyzed, the Boston Bombings were let to happen?

Or DHS sucks at their job and should be defunded?

Or, like in Nazi Germany, the surveillance apparatus is greatly exaggerated to instill fear and compliance?

Two clauses in the US constitution that libertarians don't want you to know about:

1. The Interstate Commerce Clause

This states that the Federal government has a duty to " Regulate Interstate commerce" which gives them the authority to impose sensible laws on businesses and people operating across multiple states such as the minimum wage and carbon tax.

2. The General Welfare Clause

This states that the Federal Government has a duty to "promote the general welfare" of its citizens. This clause states that not only is the welfare state constitutional, but it is required by law.

Nope, you are wrong again.  The 4th Amendment is simple and clear which is why Obama doesn't understand it.

 

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.[1]

I am sure the libertarians want you to know that the government abuses the interstate commerce clause.

If a welfare state was constitutional and required by law, it would have been instituted upon ratification of the Constitution.

'General welfare'?  You must mean, "Generous welfare.  For the inner-city Poor, and the inner-city Elite".  The former to vote for you, the latter to fund & control you -- if you're a politician.

Please define "sensible laws".  

Perhaps you should define "welfare" as well because the way I understand what you are stating by saying the "welfare state is required by law" has got to be the most preposterous definition I have ever heard.  You might want to actually read the clause and not just the name of the clause and attach to it whatever meaning you see fit.

It states "promote the general welfare", not "provide". Huge difference. Promote means to encourage the conditions favorable for the general welfare, not steal money to provide it. Provide means direct funding such as the Navy and the Postal Service as in Article I Section 8. Quit trying to revise the document and the meaning of words. Its bad enough having to put up with your statist tripe on a regular basis without having to read your lies too.

I had the exact same argument with a bunch of California Educators on a Cal Education Website, where they're cheering OBama's plan to spend hundreds of millions of TAXPAYER dollars on preschool home visits, by nurses and social workers.

http://www.edsource.org/today/2013/california-could-get-350-million-for-preschool-under-federal-proposal/33041

"The president has proposed a federal program, funded by an increased tobacco tax, that would partner with states to expand access to and quality of public preschool programs for low- and moderate-income 4-year-olds. The program would also provide funding for expanded infant and toddler care. Both initiatives would cost $75 billion in new early learning funds over the next decade."

"The president’s proposal, called Preschool For All, would make another $20.9 million available to California for home-visiting programs. The programs send nurses, social workers or other professionals to the homes of low-income parents of infants and toddlers to teach parents about early language acquisition, nutrition and safe sleeping habits."

WTF!!!

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Well, given that Atheism is the state religion, the first part of this one is fucked. Freedom of speech? Try saying the word "gun" in school-- nope. Freedom of the press? Well thanks to the internet, maybe; but they can disable the internet, can't they. Freedom of Assembly? Try to "assemble" in an airport, and see what happens. Petition the Government? I suppose, but if your petition is completely ignored, it isn't a petition. SCORE: 90% COMPROMISED

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Infringed? Fucking well right it has been infringed. SCORE: 100% COMPROMISED

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

I'm trying to figure out how they are going to compromise this one, because you sure as shit know they are at some point. SCORE: 0% COMPROMISED

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

This one's done. SCORE: 100% COMPROMISED

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Well, you can be seized and thrown into prison at any time, for any reason, if someone calls you an "enemy combatant". So, fuck due process. And anyway, if you do manage to get actual "due process" at the Federal level, don't worry-- they only have a 99% conviction rate. So you were guilty anyway! And your property can be seized at any time and given to another private party, the Supreme Court said so, so that finishes this one up. SCORE: 100% COMPROMISED

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

Given that the Feds have a 99% conviction rate, does this require further elaboration? SCORE: 100% COMPROMISED

In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

Common law??? What's that? We replaced that with Admiralty Law starting back in the 1870s. SCORE: 100% COMPROMISED

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Um. Waterboarding. And they don't even wait for you to be "tried"! You get it in place of due process! Bonus Points! SCORE: 100% COMPROMISED

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Ha. Ha. SCORE: 100% COMPROMISED

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Yawn. SCORE: 100% COMPROMISED

Secure: the feeling of having a large object lodged in your rectum.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Or the pics of Osama's body?  Or anything at all from Newtown?  Or the medical/prescription drug information for various shooters?

If they aren't mouth-breathers, tell them if the gov't can look at everything, then they can also MAKE SHIT UP and plant it, and no one could question it.

We could save a lot of this clandestine shit by simply stating the problem is Islam. We needn't necessarily be "at war" with Islam, but they are always at war with everybody, with available resources determining how hot the war is. Why in the hell, apart from delusional post-modern nonsense, are we allowing these people into our country temporarily or permanentl? Are they assimilating? Are they willing to afford tolerance of other relgions? Take a look at Dearborn, or the perimeter of Paris, or Amsterdam, or Oslo recently. If people were permitted to simply ackowledge the violent antipathy of Islam to everything, we could all be on our guard. Not extremely, or hysterically, but just know where THEY are and what THEY are doing. Not what everyone else is doing except them, so as not to offend. What is the liberal fascination with masochism? With adoration of barbarism?

Its not so much admitting there are people smarter than you out there, which is impossible for most anyone (incl. myself), you have to understand there are people completely ruthless AND just as smart as you out there.  Its the ruthlessness esp. that is hard for people to understand because they can't identify with it, you know, due to having compassion and empathy.

So, any clue on who built PRISM yet? Palantír is denying that their "Prism" is anything more than financial analysis (e.g. money-laundering-tracking) software. SAIC though just split in two, and the darker side is calling itself Leidos, short for "kaleidoscope," now.  

Interestingly, Leidos' new playground will include not only national security and engineering but healthcare. The new electronic medical records standards go into full effect in 2015, when all medical records need to be kept online. Whether or not the NSA is abusing its access to data (or just handing it to the British to examine and report on, in exchange for the NSA spying on British citizens, keeping each side from the techincality of spying on its own, like the rumors used to say about ECHELON), who wants to put some money down on whether or not PRISM or whatever successor is in place in 2015 gets the ability to read US citizens' medical records, which will have little or nothing to do with foreign agents of any sort?  

Also worth revisiting, from 2012:

The heavily fortified $2 billion center should be up and running in September 2013. Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails—parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter.” It is, in some measure, the realization of the “total information awareness” program created during the first term of the Bush administration—an effort that was killed by Congress in 2003 after it caused an outcry over its potential for invading Americans’ privacy.

On the other hand, those data warehouses could be for a totally separate (or even competing) project.

I mentioned SAIC because it was responsible for a similar-sounding, supposedly failed project called "Trailblazer" which superseded an already-working in-house prototype of a system ("ThinThread") that allegedly did a better job of protecting Americans' privacy, which apparently was not as high a priority to the NSA once Hayden took over.  The Trailblazer job was a revolving door money-fest (4 years, a billion dollars) for the NSA and SAIC, but it wasn't the only one.  Actually, they got the successor project, ExecuteLocus, too.  More money; no word on if/when it failed.  The Virtual Case File was a failed SAIC database project for the FBI.  

SAIC has a track record of over-promising and under-delivering in IT.  The PRISM project has been delivering results for some time now.  Something tells me PRISM is separate from SAIC's money-holes.

Given that it's a constellation of partnerships, for which each partner is probably using its own engineers to provide access to requested data, there's less need for massave data warehouses like what's being built in Utah and next to no NSA-side infrastructure or interfaces to be built, which means the NSA's end of things might have been entirely in-house (no SAIC = less fuck-up).  A system like that, relying on partners' systems rather than the NSA's, would obviate the need for the massive data warehouses—which probably belong to ExecuteLocus or whatever its latest incarnation is.  That would also go a long way towards explaining why the partnerships are so productive that they've become the leading source of NSA-provided intel: Hayden-era leadership fucked up the NSA's intercept and analysis abilities badly enough that a handful of partnerships with cloud services and social media providers is now the best that they have.

What if Skynet achieved consciousness and was a passionate lover of mankind, or a committed true moralist, or both? Then instead of the John Connor drama it might seize control of the drone armies and emply them to liquidate its malevolent sociopathic creators. It might also tape every government conversation and spew them out on the internet so that we could all see what our masters are up to. Why must the machine-becoming-all-powerful story always assume it would be as immoral as those building it? Might superhuman intelligence choose instead justice?

There's separate systems for that; private Skype-esque channels as well. The US has it's own network (GIG) - ruling classes have another.

Here’s a different take on social networking, Indian-born businessman Vivek Ranadivé is introducing a ‘Facebook for world leaders’ through TopCom, a private social network that combines Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, texting, and Skype, according to Esquire.

The site is targeting the world’s elite and, as such, it will launch at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos this week, as it looks to catch the attention of the world’s most powerful politicians and business figures while they are together in one place. [source  2012]

Defund the sociopathic bastards.

Join the underground economy.  Claim 15 dependents on your W-2.

WARNING!  If you read the following it will really piss you off.


You have two families: "Joe Legal" and "José Illegal" . Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California ..

Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.

José Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table".

Ready? Now pay attention....

Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal
tax; Joe Legal now has $31,231.00.

José Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.0 0 per year. José Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now
has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays  medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year.
Joe Legal
now has $24,031.00.

José Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics and emergency hospitals at a cost of $0.00 per
year. José Illegal still has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or
$6,000.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.

José Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps, WIC and welfare. José Illegal still has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe Legal now has 9,631 ..00.

José Illegal receives a $500.00 per month Federal Rent Subsidy. José Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per
year. José Illegal still has $ 31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for car insurance. Some of that is uninsured motorist insurance. Joe Legal now
has $7,231.00.

José Illegal says, "We don't need no stinkin' insurance!" and still has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc..

José Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month..

Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.

José Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.

Joe Legal's and José Illegal's children both attend the same elementary school. Joe Legal pays for his children's lunches, while
José Illegal's
children get a government sponsored lunch. José Illegal's children have an after school ESL program. Joe Legal's
children go home.

Now, when they reach college age, Joe Legal's kids may not get into a State School and may not qualify for scholarships, grants or
other tuition help, even though Joe has been paying for State Schools through his taxes, while José Illegal's kids "go to the head of
the class" because they are a minority.

Joe Legal and José Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and José did not pay.

 
If you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal aliens... You are part of the problem!

We need to keep this going--we need to make changes ASAP!

It's way PAST time to take a stand for America and Americans!

 

What are you waiting for? Copy this and Pass it on.
 

This makes too much sense!

Obama and Bernanke are just totally replaceable cog puppets.  They are not stupid; they are just following orders.  They only appear to be stupid because you assume to some degree that their agenda is what the American people are paying them to do.  Quite the contrary.  If you surmise their real agenda, they are succeeding wonderfully.  For example, a prime strategy in their agenda is to demolish the USA as a manufacturing nation.  Working up a head of hatred toward them is just a waste of energy, and when the new apparent moron muppet takes over, it then takes a couple of years to get up a little momentum again.  Better to follow the strings attached to their limbs and mouths to the top of the little puppet theater.

I don't often disagree with Simon Black, but his view that America is almost unique in believing that its government and system is "the best" is inaccurate. For sure, there are some countries that have an instinctive distrust of government including those he mentions. But Britain is exactly like America.

It doesn't matter how many bare faced lies the political filth spew out, how many times they get caught with their hands in the till, how many deeply corrupt "independent" inquiries are held into police criminality, how many innocent people are killed by gun-happy armed police, how much Establishment corruption is exposed with investigative briefs carefully designed to keep the truth hidden from sight, how many corrupt sweetheart deals are quietly struck between big corporates and the Inland Revenue, the whole show goes on. And on and on and on. People continue to look to government to solve everything that is wrong with the economy and society. As if government is capable of solving anything when it spends most of its time creating problems and interfering in our lives and setting up ever more surveillance to maintain control.

One day people will wake up, but it'll be too late.

I suspect govt has the same view of you.  Disgusting do-nothing sheep they can pillage and plunder at will.  Your pitiful lack of action has emboldened them to go far as they want.

xxx million guns doesn't matter.  Sheep don't revolt.  Sheep with guns don't revolt.  And they know it.  They don't care about your guns, they know what you really are, sheep with no guts to use 'em.

I'm on their side in this one. No way would I be on the side of disgusting loser sheep.

Well, ain't that convenient!  So you are on the side of Big Brother because we are all sheep.  So instead of whining on a blog, you can chastise the rest of us sheep on a blog without running the risk of winding up collected in a pail in your local morgue with thirty  .40 DHS manshredder HP's to keep you company.

Yep, typical "redneck" response, not doing one single thing to defend those "rights" you think you have, just "waving your guns" making threats on public blogs to shoot prople ...which I believe is a felony incidentally.

If the rest of the "patriot" community is like you, they have no hope.

They have no hope anyway.

Or, we could do it the smart way; simultaneously crash the sytem while at the same time rebuilding it with these modifications:

 28th Amendment (The Constitutional Emergency Amendment)

    Corporations are not persons and shall be granted only those rights and privileges that Congress deems necessary for the well-being of the People. Congress shall provide legislation defining the terms and conditions of corporate charters according to their purpose; which shall include, but are not limited to:
    1, prohibitions against any corporation;
    a, owning another corporation,
    b, becoming economically indispensable or monopolistic, or
    c, otherwise distorting the general economy;
    2, prohibitions against any form of intervention in the affairs of government by means of;
    a, congressional lobbying
    b, electoral sponsorship or advocacy
    c, educational sponsorship or publication
    d, media news reporting
    3, provisions for;
    a, the auditing of standardized, current, and transparent account books
    b, closing the FRB and the establishment of state-owned banks
    c, civil and criminal penalties to be suffered by corporate executives et al for violation of the terms of a corporate charter.

Optional: (or possible 29th amendment)

    The 16th Amendment to the United States Constitution is hereby repealed and Congress shall re-write the U.S. Code to reflect the changes embodied herein.

    (Someone else suggested repealing the 17th amendment; and I agree to that, too)

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
