County Sheriff Has Audacity to Stencil “Protecting Your Constitutional Rights” on Agency’s MRAP & Humvee

Law enforcement agencies are turning to the Department of Defense, more and more, for their tactical policing needs, requesting such items as Mine Resistant Ambush Protection (MRAP) vehicles, surplus Humvees, rifles, and other assorted military-grade hardware. While some can be used in special operations, such as protecting officers from active shooters, or gaining entry into heavily fortified buildings, the sheer audacity of one Oklahoma Sheriff goes far beyond this.

canacountysheriff_mrap2Sheriff Randall Edwards, of the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office, located on the western edge of Oklahoma City, has failed miserably in his attempt to soften the image of these war machines by stenciling, “Protecting Your Constitutional Rights“, on the sides of his new MRAP and Humvee.

How does a 50,000 lb. vehicle, capable of shielding occupants from rocket propelled grenades and AK-47 fire, protect American Rights?

Does this vehicle serve to protect protesters exercising their First Amendment right? Will the Sheriff deploy this armored beast to aide in citizens wishing to vote, or perhaps, to shelter his fellow Oklahomans who decide to use their Second Amendment right?...

The Bureau of Land Management, whose director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations.

Deleted from BLM.gov, but reposted for posterity by the Free Republic, the BLM document entitled “Cattle Trespass Impacts” directly states that Bundy’s cattle “impacts” solar development, more specifically the construction of “utility-scale solar power generation facilities” on “public lands.”

“Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence of trespass cattle,” the document states.

At Odds: Medical Marijuana and Private Prisons that Demand Maximum Capacity

Posted on Mar 17, 2014 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

With the surge of headlines debating the use of marijuana, the repeal of cannabis prohibition, and its medicinal qualities, one must wonder why some states are so hesitant in reforming their antiquated laws. If you’re still of the mindset that marijuana is a dangerous gateway drug that leads to acid trips and homicidal rampages, you really need to get with the times.

CNN’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a highly respected neurosurgeon and frontrunner for Surgeon General of the United States, has recently, and very publicly stated that he was wrong about medical marijuana and is now a proponent of its use in medicine.

At the heart of this matter lies money, as with every political spectacle. On one hand, there is the potential tax money earned from the sale and regulation of marijuana, in a similar fashion as alcohol is currently handled. On the other hand, and often with much more political clout behind it (not to mention a small army of lobbyists), is the money earned in the private prison industry. These companies are traded on Wall Street based upon the number of prisoners inside, and push for strict drug laws that guarantee maximum profit....

Oklahoma Senate Passes SB 862, Making Gold & Silver Legal Tender

Posted on Mar 11, 2014 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers, Political Issues

On Monday, the Oklahoma State Senate passed a bill that would legalize gold and silver as legal tender, moving the legislation on to the House for consideration. The vote was 37-4.

If passed into law, Oklahoma could become the first state to recognize gold and silver as legal tender authorized for payments of debts and taxes.

Last month, the Arizona senate also passed a similar bill by a vote of 18-12. However, the governor has already vetoed a similar bill last year.

The United States Constitution states in Article I, Section 10, “No State shall…make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.” The Constitutional tender act is a big step towards that constitutional requirement which has been ignored for a long time in every state of the country. Such a tactic would achieve the desired goal of abolishing the Federal Reserve system by attacking it from the bottom up – pulling the rug out from under it by working to make its functions irrelevant at the State and local level....

Supreme Court Reversal: Police DO NOT Need a Warrant to Search Your Home – Hayden’s Note Attached

In another devastating blow to freedom, the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that police don’t need a warrant to search your property. As long as two occupants disagree about allowing officers to enter, and the resident who refuses access is then arrested, police may enter the residence.

“Instead of adhering to the warrant requirement,” Ginsburg wrote, “today’s decision tells the police they may dodge it, nevermind ample time to secure the approval of a neutral magistrate.” Tuesday’s ruling, she added, “shrinks to petite size our holding in Georgia v. Randolph.”

Hayden’s Note:

It should be noted that this decision does not allow police to enter homes at random. Instead, what it is saying – and reversing from a previous case noted above – is that even if you object to a search, if you are in custody or even being detained, police do not necessarily need a warrant to proceed with a search. This is an extremely slippery slope that will lead to further degradation of the 4th Amendment in the sense that search warrants require a very specific language, describing the person or place to be searched, as well as what police are searching for.

The Avenger (formerly Predator C), whose prototype flew its first flight in 2009, is operationally ready after a new round of tests completed last month, according to its maker, General Atomics. Based on the company’s more well-known MQ-9 Reaper drone, Avenger is designed to perform high-speed, long-endurance surveillance or strike missions, flying up to 500 mph at a maximum of 50,000 feet for as long as 18 hours.

Compared to its earlier prototype, Avenger’s fuselage has been increased by four feet to accommodate larger payloads and more fuel, allowing for extended missions. It can carry up to 3,500 pounds internally, and its 66-foot wingspan is capable of carrying weapons as large as a 2,000-pound Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM).

Switching from propeller-driven drones to jets will allow the CIA to continue its Pakistan strikes from a more distant base, if and when the U.S. is forced to withdraw troops entirely from neighboring Afghanistan.

Tennessee Senate Bill 1849 Seeks to Stop the NSA within State Borders, Refuses Support

Posted on Jan 25, 2014 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Political Issues

As eight states have introduced legislation to keep the NSA out of their borders, Tennessee’s newly introduced legislation packs the strongest punch yet.

The bill is known as the “Tennessee Fourth Amendment Protection Act”. State Senator Stacey Campfield (R) and State Representative Andy Holt (R) are the Senate and House sponsors. The bill was drafted and lobbied for by the Tenth Amendment Center, a national think-tank, which seeks to impede unconstitutional federal laws, regulations and entities on the state level.

“We have an out of control federal agency spying on pretty much everybody in the world. I don’t think the state of Tennessee should be helping the NSA violate the Constitution and the basic privacy rights of its citizens – and we don’t have to,” Campfield said. “This bill may not stop the NSA, but it will darn sure stop Tennessee from participating in unjustified and illegal activities.”

Campfield’s comments hold strong warrant. The NSA has been operating directly underneath the nose of many Tennesseans without them ever knowing. A long-standing secretive NSA computing facility calls Oak Ridge, Tennessee home. ...

South Carolina House Passes Legislation to Ban Drone Use 100-0 Thumbnail

South Carolina House Passes Legislation to Ban Drone Use 100-0

The South Carolina state senate this week is considering a bill to virtually ban the use of drones without a warrant. It recently passed the state house unanimously, with a vote of 100-0.

Introduced in early 2013 by Reps. Hamilton (R), Delleney (R), Taylor (R), Putnam (R) and Loftis (R), House bill 3514 (H3514) would prohibit the operation of drones by an agency of the state unless it is “pursuant to a criminal warrant issued by a court of competent jurisdiction.”

“We’re really just updating our laws to keep up with some of the technology,” the bill’s primary sponsor, state Rep. Dan Hamilton, R-Taylors, told South Carolina Radio Network. ”The technology is changing rapidly. A lot of these companies that have sold them for use overseas are now marketing them domestically. I think, before things get out of hand, that we put a box around it and make they’re being used in the way they should be.”

CIA Drones: The New Wedding Crashers & a Policy of Indiscriminate Killing

Posted on Dec 16, 2013 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

Fifteen people on their way to a wedding in Yemen were killed in an air strike after their party was mistaken for an al Qaeda convoy, local security officials said on Thursday.

The officials did not identify the plane in the strike in central al-Bayda province, but tribal and local media sources said that it was a drone.

“An air strike [...] hit a wedding car convoy, ten people were killed immediately and another five who were injured, died after being admitted to the hospital,” one security official said.

Hayden’s Note:

The CIA’s program of “targeted” drone killings in Pakistan’s tribal heartlands is politically counterproductive, kills large numbers of civilians, and undermines respect for international law, according to a report by US academics.

“The dominant narrative about the use of drones in Pakistan is of a surgically precise and effective tool that makes the US safer by enabling ‘targeted killings’ of terrorists, with minimal downsides or collateral impacts. This narrative is false,” the report, entitled Living Under Drones, states.

It is clear to see that our use of drones increases militant recruitment, as well as fueling hatred towards our Nation....

Nelson Mandela: Communist, Terrorist, & Liar

Posted on Dec 06, 2013 in Global & National News, Mainstream Media & Programming, Political Issues

President Barack Obama has compared him to George Washington. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews heralded him as “perhaps the world’s greatest hero.”

The Las Vegas Guardian Express dispensed with the “perhaps,” declaring in headline: “Nelson Mandela World’s Greatest Hero.”

Others have christened him “the greatest man of the 20th century.” Many revere him as “the savior” of South Africa. School children worldwide read books, write essays and sing songs about him, and watch movies extolling his virtues and heroic accomplishments.

As we write, the 94-year-old Mandela has been hovering near death for days, the subject of hourly news updates and the beneficiary of tearful prayer vigils worldwide. With the announcement of his death, the eulogies will soon be sounding and in his honor innumerable streets, highways, schools, stadiums, parks, and public buildings will be renamed.

For the past three decades, Nelson Mandela has been swathed in global media adulation unlike any other human being in history. No pope, president, king, war hero, movie star, or rock star can boast of having been the beneficiary of such undiluted, unalloyed, and unbroken acclaim....

Hayden’s Note: Hollywood Producer Arnon Milchan Confirms He Was Israeli Intel Agent, Helped Purchase Nuclear Technologies

Stories about Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan’s alleged double life have been circulating for years.

Now, the Israeli businessman behind hits like “Pretty Woman,” ”Fight Club” and “L.A. Confidential” has finally come forth with a stunning admission — for years he served as an Israeli spy, buying arms on its behalf and boosting its alleged nuclear program.

In a far-reaching interview aired Monday with Israel’s Channel 2 TV’s flagship investigative program “Uvda,” Milchan detailed a series of clandestine affairs in which he was involved and particularly how he helped purchase technologies Israel allegedly needed to operate nuclear bombs.

Hayden’s Note:

The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, commonly known as the Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT, is an international treaty whose objective is to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, to promote cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and to further the goal of achieving nuclear disarmament and general and complete disarmament.[1]

The only countries in the entire world who have not or will not sign this pact are such notables as North Korea, India, Pakistan, South Sudan… and Israel.

More Americans Successfully Sign-up for One-Way Mission to Mars than Obamacare

Posted on Oct 18, 2013 in Political Issues, Science & Technology

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Mars One is a non-profit organization with plans to establish a permanent human colony on Mars by 2023. The private spaceflight project is led by Dutch entrepreneur Bas Lansdorp, and will launch four volunteer astronauts on a one-way flight to Mars in 2022. The historic journey will be documented for a reality show set to broadcast around the clock.

The four lucky astronauts will be selected from a pool of more than 200,000 applicants, all whom are vying for the chance to rocket to the red planet where they will face a hostile, barren environment, where temperatures plummet to -238*F. Their lives will be televised, every minute, until they die on the martian surface, with no way to ever return to Earth.

Sounds pretty extreme to most, however, the 200,000 applicants still outnumber those who have actually enrolled in the illustrious Affordable Care Act – often referred to as Obamacare – by an order of 6 to 1.

A measly 36,000 American citizens have actually signed up for the healthcare exchange.

With that said, many more have TRIED to enroll....

Predictive Programming: Africa as the New Boogeyman

Many times, in order to understand where one is headed, he needs to understand what is behind him.

With overwhelming opposition to armed intervention in Syria, the global elitists’ plans seem to have been delayed a bit, but fear not, their end game is not simply Syria. Long-term plans to topple Iran, as well as continue to move further south into Africa, seem to be the goal.

And for that to happen, the West needs to establish a larger support base among the American People. The West needs a new boogeyman, as the al-Qaeda ghoul has fallen apart now that mainstream news outlets are finally admitting that we give them money, weapons, communications equipment, and provide airstrikes for their operations. Once the Syria debacle hit the headlines, regular Joe Citizen finally started to realize just how much support the US is giving to admitted members of al-Qaeda, especially as they morph into the powerful al-Nusra Front in Syria.

But Africa lies ready and ripe for the picking, not only in resources, but in enemies. With the recent, well-publicized anniversary of the ‘Black Hawk Down’ incident in Somalia, and the shooting at the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, we continue to see the African continent in the news....
