Former SEAL: Dear Mr. Security Agent

Excerpt from Matt Bracken’s Open Letter to Law Enforcement with Hayden’s Note at the end;

The unintended consequences of this misguided utopian fool’s crusade to ban guns would include a second civil war as agonizingly painful as the first one, if not more so, since there would be no front lines and no safe areas for anybody, anywhere. Every sane American wants to prevent such a calamitous outcome as a “dirty civil war” on United States soil.

But know this: those tens of millions will never be quietly disarmed and then later forced at government gunpoint onto history’s next boxcars. If boxcars and detention camps are to be in America’s future, then you, Mr. Security Agent, will have to disarm them the hard way first. Not Piers Morgan, not Dianne Feinstein, not Chuck Schumer.

You.

And so, if you find yourself silently dismounting a covert SWAT vehicle at zero-dark-thirty, dressed in body armor, counting down to the explosion of battering rams and flash-bang grenades, on a raid against a sleeping household intended to result in the confiscation of firearms, ammunition, or magazines that were legal to own in 2012, millions of Americans who also swore an oath to defend the Constitution will consider you their domestic enemy, and they will resist you with force of arms....

Senator Asks CIA Nominee When Drones Can Kill Americans; Can They Surrender?

The man in charge of America’s drone wars will face Senate questioning about perhaps their most controversial aspect: when the president can target American citizens for death.

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) sent a letter on Monday to John Brennan, the White House’s counterterrorism adviser and nominee to be head of the CIA, asking for an outline of the legal and practical rules that underpin the U.S. government’s targeted killing of American citizens suspected of working with al-Qaida. The Obama administration has repeatedly resisted disclosing any such information about its so-called “disposition matrix” targeting terrorists, especially where it concerns possible American targets. Brennan reportedly oversees that matrix from his White House perch, and would be responsible for its execution at CIA director.

“How much evidence does the President need to determine that a particular American can be lawfully killed?” Wyden, a member of the Senate intelligence committee, asks in the letter, acquired by Danger Room. “Does the President have to provide individual Americans with the opportunity to surrender before killing them?”

Texas Judge Rules Schools Can Force RFID Chips on Students or Face Suspension

In the fall of last year the San Antonio Northside School District in Texas announced that they would track students with RFID (radio frequency identification) chips in their student badges.

One student, sophomore Andrea Hernandez, was suspended for refusing to wear the tracking device and took the matter to court.

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia ruled in favor of the school district claiming they have the right to expel Hernandez for refusing to abide by school requirements. By default the judge ruled that the school had the right to force children to be treated like cattle while on campus.

The program, called the “Student Locator Project,” is aimed at increasing student attendance rates presumably to boost in public funding for the district.

“There is something fundamentally disturbing about this school district’s insistence on steamrolling students into complying with programs that have nothing whatsoever to do with academic priorities and everything to do with fattening school coffers,” said John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute when he took the case.

As part of the pilot program, roughly 4,200 students at Jay High School and Jones Middle School are being required to wear “SmartID” card badges embedded with an RFID tracking chip which will make it possible for school officials to track students’ whereabouts on campus at all times.

Gun Frenzy: Photos Show How Quickly Stores Across the Nation are Selling Out

After nationwide calls to ban assault rifles and high-capacity magazines following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Americans concerned about the government’s coming move to restrict the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession of firearms deemed too dangerous to be in the hands of private citizens are cleaning out gun stores from coast to coast.

While some retailers have made the decision to suspend sales and stop selling certain firearms altogether, others are seeing sales skyrocket to never before seen levels. Parking lots are packed and hopeful shoppers are waiting hours for their chance to get their hands on weapons, parts and magazines that may soon be banned under Federal mandates.

The following photos taken over a three day period at a local gun store give us a glimpse of just how fast gun stores are clearing out their inventory. According to the shop owner who took these pictures, their store was selling upwards of one thousand guns per day.

Here’s how the store looked on the Sunday before the frenzy:

On Monday:

By Tuesday, shelves were almost clean:

Magazines, especially high capacity magazines, are selling at such a rapid pace that supply and demand has led some retailers to charge three times as much for a single magazine then they did just a week prior to the frenzy....

Top Online Gun Retailer Suspends Sales of Firearms, “Effective Immediately” – Hayden’s Note Attached

Online retailer Cheaper Than Dirt!, one of the world’s largest sporting goods stores and a top online gun distributor, has suspended sales of firearms as of Tuesday.

Hayden’s Note:

Want my opinion? Of course you do, otherwise you wouldn’t be here. Ami’rite?

Here goes: Cheaper Than Dirt, being one of the largest online weapon sellers, gets wind of what’s coming down the pipe regarding how gun purchases are made and decides to get ahead of the curve by adjusting their e-commerce approach and sales protocols.  If, and this is a big IF – the White House and Powers That Be implement any sort of weapon ban, you can be sure that online sales, if still legal in any form, will radically change.  This represents a massive investment for companies such as Cheaper Than Dirt. Imagine redesigning your entire business’ way of making money, and you realize in order to minimize down time, they better get to work.

This also suggests to me, and I rarely talk about “Obama gun bans”, that it is hurtling down the proverbial pipe at warp speed and something concrete will be enacted sooner, rather than later.

Congress Making it Nearly Impossible to Pass on a Farm to Your Children – 55% Estate Tax

If you have a farm or a small business, would you like to pass it on to your children when you die? Well, unless Congress does something, it is going to become much, much harder to do that starting next year.

Right now, there is a 5 million dollar estate tax exemption and anything above that is taxed at 35 percent. But on January 1st, the exemption will go down to 1 million dollars and the tax rate will go up to 55 percent. A lot of liberals are very excited about this, because they believe that the government will be soaking wealthy people like Warren Buffett and Bill Gates. But the truth is that a lot of farms, ranches and small businesses will be absolutely devastated by this change in the tax law.

There are many farmers and ranchers out there today that do not make much money but are sitting on tracts of land that are worth millions of dollars. According to the American Farm Bureau, approximately 97 percent of all farms and ranches in the United States would be subject to the estate tax if the exemption was reduced to just a million dollars.

Farewell Dear Doctor. You were the last remaining patriot. I salute you for your wisdom, courage, and honesty. You alone were the shining light during this dark time. You are no longer alone in your fight for freedom, liberty, and truth.

Farewell to Congress

This may well be the last time I speak on the House Floor. At the end of the year I’ll leave Congress after 23 years in office over a 36 year period. My goals in 1976 were the same as they are today: promote peace and prosperity by a strict adherence to the principles of individual liberty.

It was my opinion, that the course the U.S. embarked on in the latter part of the 20th Century would bring us a major financial crisis and engulf us in a foreign policy that would overextend us and undermine our national security.

To achieve the goals I sought, government would have had to shrink in size and scope, reduce spending, change the monetary system, and reject the unsustainable costs of policing the world and expanding the American Empire....

Heavily Armed Police Raid Organic Farm, Conduct Illegal Search: “He’s a Constitutionalist.”

Posted on Oct 10, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

On August 16th, 2012, in a sleepy Idaho farm town, heavily-armed members of the Gem County Sheriff’s Office conducted an illegal search of a residence after receiving a domestic violence complaint from a neighbor.

After pulling the occupants from the house at gunpoint, displaying rude and discourteous behavior, and then illegally searching the entire house, along with personal effects, deputies discover what they believed to be a marijuana “grow room.”  One intelligent deputy suddenly has an epiphany, as heard in the video below at 05:20, “We’ll need to get a warrant for this.”

Little late for that, eh?  Funny enough, the grow room turns out to be an aquaponics system for the couple’s organic tomatoes.

But let’s back this scenario up a bit.

Police are enroute to a domestic violence complaint, and 911 transcripts indicate one deputy warning another that the subject of the complaint is a “Constitutionalist.”  Apparently, some of that Federal Fusion Center training did sink in!  It’s okay to politically profile those who follow the words on our Founding document.  Better gear up for a SWAT-entry!...

Obama Spells Out His Five-Point Criteria for Death by Drone

President Obama is tearing the shroud of secrecy off his once hush-hush death-by-drone program.

The president may assume that there is little reason to try hiding something that is being publicized daily — except in the mainstream media. In fairness, the New York Times has done fine work chronicling the expansion of the use of drones, as well as their involvement in the killing of innocents overseas caught in the blast zone of missiles aimed at alleged militants.

An exception to the official policy of silence on the matter of the death-by-drone program being carried out by the White House and the CIA was made earlier this year. In April the White House’s top counterterrorism advisor, John Brennan, admitted for the first time publicly to the government’s significant reliance on drones in prosecuting the War on Terror. Brennan said that the remote control killing of suspects on foreign soil who have been charged with no crime whatsoever, is “in full accordance with the law.”

Brennan also said the United States “respects national sovereignty and international law.”

Speaking with Margaret Sanger at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Brennan defended the president’s drone program....

Update:  “A judge said today [08.23.12] he will order the release of a Marine Corps veteran…Circuit Judge W. Allan Sharrett said an involuntary commitment order issued against Brandon J. Raub was invalid because it contained no allegation or basis to holding him.”

The Rutherford Institute has come to the defense of a former Marine, 26-year-old Brandon Raub, who was arrested, detained indefinitely in a psych ward, and forced to undergo psychological evaluations based solely on the controversial nature of lines from song lyrics, political messages, and virtual card games which he posted to his private Facebook page. Although the FBI and Chesterfield County police have not charged Brandon Raub with committing any crime, they arrested him on Thursday, August 16, 2012, and transported him to John Randolph Medical Center, where he is being held against his will due to concerns that his Facebook posts were controversial and “terrorist in nature.”

Hayden’s Note:

While I understand their reasoning for using the defense that his Facebook comments were taken out of context, or were merely song lyrics, I am dismayed that it is likely their focal point in his defense.

Portrait of a Drone Killer: Unquestioning Obedience, Coming to a State Near You!

One wonders if drone pilot Col. D. Scott Brenton listens to Louis Armstrong in the suburban Air National Guard Base in Syracuse from which he murders people 7,000 miles away.

“I see mothers with children, I see fathers with children, I see fathers with mothers, I see kids playing soccer,” Brenton tells the New York Times. Drone operators see their intended targets “wake up in the morning, do their work, go to sleep at night,” explains Dave, another high-tech murderer who killed from an office cockpit at Nevada’s Creech Air Force Base and who now trains new recruits to the cyber-killer corps at New Mexico’s Holloman Air Force Base.

When instructed to kill someone he has stalked from the air for a prolonged period, “I feel no emotional attachment to the enemy,” Brenton insists. I have a duty, and I execute my duty.” When the deed is done, he points out, nobody “in my immediate environment is aware of anything that has occurred.”

“There was a good reason for killing the people that I did, and I go through it in my head over and over and over,” insists another drone operator named Will, who — like Dave — served a deskbound “combat” tour at Creech and now trains others to do likewise at Holloman Air Base....

Homeland Security Gears up for Civil Unrest Prior to National Convention, Rushed Solicitation for Riot Gear

Posted on Jul 29, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

The Department of Homeland Security has ordered masses of riot gear equipment to prepare for potential significant domestic riots at the Republican National Convention, Democratic National Convention and next year’s presidential inauguration.

The DHS submitted a rushed solicitation to the Federal Business Opportunities site on Wednesday, which is a portal for Federal government procurement requisitions over $25,000. The request gave the potential suppliers only one day to submit their proposals and a 15-day delivery requirement to Alexandria, Virginia.

As the brief explains, “the objective of this effort is to procure riot gear to prepare for the 2012 Democratic and Republican National Conventions, the 2013 Presidential Inauguration and other future similar activities.”

Hayden’s Note:

It would seem as though the Powers That Be are a bit concerned over their Federal Protective Police Officers getting injured.  These officers guard Federal buildings and properties and typically do not possess riot gear.  With the hasty order, it is painfully apparent that they are expecting bigger trouble than usual from the citizens…err, I mean those violent protesters! As if Free Speech Zones weren’t enough, and an absurd amount of tactical officers in attendance, now we’re giving security guards riot gear?

Oregon Man Sentenced to 30 Days in Jail for Collecting Rainwater on His Property

A rural Oregon man was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail and over $1,500 in fines because he had three reservoirs on his property to collect and use rainwater.

Gary Harrington of Eagle Point, Ore., says he plans to appeal his conviction in Jackson County (Ore.) Circuit Court on nine misdemeanor charges under a 1925 law for having what state water managers called “three illegal reservoirs” on his property – and for filling the reservoirs with rainwater and snow runoff.

“The government is bullying,” Harrington told CNSNews.com in an interview Thursday.

“They’ve just gotten to be big bullies and if you just lay over and die and give up, that just makes them bigger bullies. So, we as Americans, we need to stand on our constitutional rights, on our rights as citizens and hang tough. This is a good country, we’ll prevail,” he said.

The court has given Harrington two weeks to report to the Jackson County Jail to begin serving his sentence.

Harrington said the case first began in 2002, when state water managers told him there were complaints about the three “reservoirs” – ponds – on his more than 170 acres of land....
