BHO- Reject Warnings of Coming Tyranny

These sets of emails are quite varied. The first email explores Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). The next email is about the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) – undoubtedly under Obama’s directions – reuniting children smuggled into the USA via busted human trafficking or Drug Cartel mules with their illegal immigrant parents already breaking the law by being in the USA. The next email combines DHS enforcement of the REAL ID Act (See Also HERE), Bailouts and a modern version of debtors’ prison. The next few emails deal with the global economy looking at issues as the value of gold and more. In those nefarious activities pertaining to the global economy one particular email is how the NSA can use data to manipulate markets because of its ability to monitor any kind of electronic messaging which includes phone usage.

Fox News Shockingly Reports The Truth On GMOs

GMOs: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

 

The debate continues over whether genetically modified organisms are out to save the world or destroy it. But the argument for either side is far from cut-and-dry.

 

We always recommend the consumption of non-GMO whole foods; GMOs have only been around for the last two decades and the longstanding social and medical effects of GMO production and consumption is yet to be seen.

 

Learn a little about the history of GMOs. Should their labeling be required in the United States? (Go to Website to see the Charts)

 

The seven most genetically modified foods are Corn, Soy, Yellow Crookneck Squash and Zucchini, Alfalfa, Canola, Sugar Beets and Milk.

Genetically modified material sounds a little bit like science fiction territory, but in reality, much of what we eat on a daily basis is a genetically modified organism (GMO). Whether or not these modified foods are actually healthy is still up for debate — and many times, you don’t even know that you are buying something genetically modified.

 

It is not required to label GMOs in the U.S. and Canada, but there are substantial restrictions, and even outright bans, on GMOs in many other countries.

 

However, by 2018, Whole Foods Market will start labeling GMOs in the U.S. This grocery chains’ locations in Britain already provide GMO labeled products, as required by the European Union. According to the EU, GMO refers to plants and animals “in which the genetic material has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally by mating and/or natural recombination.”

 

1) Corn

Almost 85 perecent (sic) of corn grown in the U.S. is genetically modified. Even Whole Foods’s brand of corn flakes was found to contain genetically modified corn. Many producers modify corn and soy so they are resistant to the herbicide glyphosate, which is used to kill weeds.

 

2) Soy

Soy is the most heavily genetically modified food in the country. The largest U.S. producer of hybrid seeds for agriculture, Pioneer Hi-Bred International, created a genetically engineered soybean, which was approved in 2010. It is modified to READ THE REST (7 Most Common Genetically Modified Foods; By Caroline Young; HuffPo; 12/3/13 8:38 am)

China’s quality authority has urged the United States to improve its inspection procedures to ensure that they comply with Chinese quality standards.

 

Broiler Chickens Found At Grocery Retailers Grow Three Times Faster Than Normal Chickens, Plagued With Lameness and Disease

 

http://preventdisease.com/news/13/121913_Broiler-Chickens-Grow-Three-Times-Faster-Than-Normal-Chickens-Plagued-With-Lameness-Disease.shtml

 

Billions of chickens around the world suffer in the intensive farming systems every year. Broilers chickens have been selectively bred and genetically modified so that they are reared quickly and cheaply to have enough meat to fulfill demand. Most these chickens suffer from painful lameness and disease related to their growth rates.

 

Intensification of the broiler chicken industry started in the late 1950’s, when the use of ‘dual purpose’ chickens for egg and meat production ceased and new poultry strains were produced specifically for meat production.

For example, in 1950, well under 50 million commercial broiler chickens were raised commercially, and now that number is well into the billions. When Kentucky Fried Chicken stores opened in the 1970s, production of these chickens skyrocketed over 40%.

The result of the narrowly focused breeding programs has been a bird which grows twice or three times as fast as a normal chicken and converts its food into meat in a much more efficient way. Most are raised under intensive systems and reach slaughter weight at 5-7 weeks of age. As a consequence the price of chicken meat has declined and consumption has risen several fold.

Intensive Selective Breeding

Over 50 years ago it took 98 days for a chicken to grow to 1.6kg. By 1986, due to selective breeding, it only took 37 days. Baby birds, who still chirp and have soft feathers, have the bodies of adult birds. This unnatural growth rate puts enormous pressure on the heart and immature skeleton and is the cause of many health problems.

Extreme selection pressure for large breast muscles has further distorted the anatomy of these animals and READ THE REST (Broiler Chickens Found At Grocery Retailers Grow Three Times Faster …; By APRIL McCARTHY; PreventDisease.com; 12/19/13)

Judge claims DHS delivering smuggled children to illegal immigrant parents

Sent: 12/21/2013 8:40 AM

 

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/12/19/judge-claims-dhs-parents-smuggle/

 

A federal judge in Texas is accusing the Department of Homeland Security of hand-delivering children smuggled into the United States to their illegal immigrant parents.

 

U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen revealed the practice in a blistering court order filed late last week. He said the “dangerous” practice is effectively aiding human traffickers and particularly the drug cartels, which run many of these operations.

 

“These actions are both dangerous and unconscionable,” he wrote.

 

The judge attempted to lift the curtain on what is happening behind the scenes of the Obama administration’s changing approach to immigration enforcement. It has been well-documented that DHS is allowing some illegal immigrants already inside the country to skirt deportation, and particularly those who came to the U.S. as children.

 

But the “conspiracy” outlined by Hanen would take that controversial policy a big step further. He detailed the case of an illegal immigrant parent in Virginia, but used that as an entry point to describe what he suggested was a broader program.

 

Hanen claimed that, in more than one case before his court, immigration officials are arresting human traffickers smuggling children into the U.S. — and then “delivering the minors to the custody of the parent illegally living in the United States.”

 

“The DHS has simply chosen not to enforce the United States’ border security laws,” he wrote.

REAL ID Enforcement Begins in 2014, 21 States Compliant

http://www.sacbee.com/2013/12/20/6016990/real-id-enforcement-begins-in.html

 

WASHINGTON, Dec. 20, 2013 — /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Department of Homeland Security

 

The REAL ID Act’s enforcement will start next year, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced today. The enforcement steps will begin in April 2014 within restricted areas of the DHS headquarters, followed by a phased approach, with substantial enforcement in 2016. The 2005 REAL ID Act prohibits the federal government from accepting driver’s licenses and ID cards that do not meet minimum security standards set by DHS, no later than May 2017. The minimum standards require that driver’s license security features be routinely upgraded to be counterfeit resistant and require applicants to provide documentary proofs confirm true identity.

 

REAL ID compliant driver’s licenses and ID cards are key elements of the nation’s homeland security strategy. Enforcement of the law will clarify and differentiate between compliant state-issued identity credentials versus less reliable proofs of identity when admitting people to secure federal facilities or, beginning in 2016, to board airlines.

Bailouts leave a legacy of cronyism: Opposing view

http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2013/12/22/bailouts-tarp-general-motors-mark-calabria-editorials-debates/4168419/

 

This month’s sale by the Treasury of its remaining shares in General Motors should offer us all an opportunity to say “never again.”

 

OUR VIEW: Auto rescue a triumph

 

Pay no attention to the the Obama and Bush administration cheerleaders. The federal rescue of GM, along with the TARP in general, serves as an example of everything wrong with Washington.

 

The TARP was little more than a transfer of losses from inept corporations to the taxpayer, mistaking the redistribution of losses with their avoidance.

 

Let’s start with the easy part: The taxpayer is projected to take a loss of more than $20 billion on two of the TARP programs. About half of that loss is from the $50 billion GM bailout; the remainder is largely the result of various failed housing assistance programs.

 

It didn’t have to be this way. When GM entered bankruptcy, the creditors should have taken their losses, and the company could have been reorganized at no cost to taxpayers. The same is true of the banks. A conversion of debt to equity would have recapitalized the banks at no cost to the taxpayer. Any upside would have been shared with the creditors.

 

We were repeatedly told, however, that the only choices were bailout or liquidate. GM, among others, proved that a false choice. Just as many of us have flown on bankrupt airlines, banks and automakers could have been operated in a reorganization.

 

Let’s also not forget that there was no authority under the TARP to assist automakers. Congress had voted down an auto bailout. But the READ THE REST (Bailouts leave a legacy of cronyism: Opposing view; By Mark Calabria; USA Today; 12/22/13 6:42 p.m. EST)

How Debtors’ Prisons Are Making A Comeback In America

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-12-26/how-debtors-prisons-are-making-comeback-america

 

Apparently having 5% of the world’s population, but 25% of its prisoners simply isn’t good enough for neo-feudal America. No, we need to find more creative and archaic ways to wastefully, immorally and seemingly unconstitutionally incarcerate poor people. Welcome to the latest trend in the penal colony formerly known as America. Debtors’ prisons. A practice I thought had long since been deemed outdated (indeed it has been largely eradicated in the Western world with the exception of about 1/3 of U.S. states as well as Greece).

 

From Fox News:

 

As if out of a Charles Dickens novel, people struggling to pay overdue fines and fees associated with court costs for even the simplest traffic infractions are being thrown in jail across the United States.

 

Critics are calling the practice the new “debtors’ prison” — referring to the jails that flourished in the U.S. and Western Europe over 150 years ago. Before the time of bankruptcy laws and social safety nets, poor folks and ruined business owners were locked up until their debts were paid off.

 

Reforms eventually outlawed the practice. But groups like the Brennan Center for Justice and the American Civil Liberties Union say it’s been reborn in local courts which may not be aware it’s against the law to send indigent people to jail over unpaid fines and fees — or they just haven’t been called on it until now.

 

The Brennan Center for Justice at New York University’s School of Law released a “Tool Kit for Action” in 2012 that broke down the cost to municipalities to jail debtors in comparison with the amount of old debt it was collecting. It doesn’t look like a bargain. For example, according to the report, Mecklenburg County, N.C., collected $33,476 in debts in 2009, but spent $40,000 jailing 246 debtors — a loss of $6,524.

 

Don’t worry, I’m sure private prisons for debtors will soon READ THE REST (How Debtors’ Prisons Are Making A Comeback In America; Submitted by Tyler Durden who found a submission by Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg; Zero Hedge; 12/26/13 14:32 -0500)

Is The NSA Changing Bank Accounts?

http://personalliberty.com/2014/01/03/is-the-nsa-changing-bank-accounts/

 

Has the National Security Administration (NSA) been changing the amounts held in the financial accounts of people it targets?

 

The question would seem absurd if it were not for a 308-page report on the NSA that was released on Dec. 12 by an official White House panel. Recommendation 31, “Institutional Measures for Cyberspace,” on page 37 and repeated on page 221 reads:

 

(1) Governments should not use surveillance to steal industry secrets to advantage their domestic industry;

 

(2) Governments should not use their offensive cyber capabilities to change the amounts held in financial accounts or otherwise manipulate the financial systems.

 

Upon reading the panels’ report, Trevor Timm (a surveillance expert from the Electronic Frontier Foundation) sent a tweet; it was retweeted by Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who originally leaked documents from Edward Snowden.

 

[Blog Editor: Trevor Timm Tweets on NSA cyber attacking financial systems]

 

Does it imply that the NSA is or has been altering the financial data of targeted individuals or agencies?

 

The NSA certainly has the ability to do so, because it has the information to do so. The German news source Der Spiegel reported Sept. 15 on an internal NSA branch known as “Follow the Money” (FTM). The branch monitors “international payments, banking and credit card transactions.” In a responsive statement, the NSA admitted to tracking financial information but only as it related to terrorist financing and terror networks. It states, “This information is collected through regulatory, law enforcement, diplomatic, and intelligence channels, as well as through undertakings with cooperating foreign allies and partners.”

According To The IMF  in a “White Paper” just release at the end of December 2013, warns much of the Western world will require defaults, a “savings tax” and “higher inflation” to clear the way for Western Economic recovery as debt levels reach a 200-year high. This according to a new report by the International Monetary Fund. IMF.org pdf

 

The IMF working paper states that debt burdens in developed nations have become extreme by any historical measure and will require a wave of haircuts, either negotiated 1930s-style write-offs or the standard mix of measures used by the IMF in its “toolkit” for emerging market blow-ups. This would mean that America’s low income and middle class would feel the financial pain the most, as they did during the Great Depression.

 

“The sheer magnitude of the problem suggests that restructuring will be needed, for example, in the periphery of Europe, far beyond anything discussed in public to this point,” said the paper, by Harvard professors Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff.  How will the public react now that the IMF has made public their “White Paper” that announces the coming 1930′s style depression that lies ahead?

 

The IMF white paper said policy elites in the West still are still clinging to the illusion that rich countries are different from poorer regions and can therefore chip away at their debts with a blend of austerity cuts, growth, and tinkering (“forbearance”). But history reveals that this simply is not true.

 

The presumption is that advanced economies “do not resort to such gimmicks” such as debt restructuring and repression, which would “give up hard-earned credibility” and throw the economy into a “vicious circle”. (Depression)

Biometric National ID


Biometrics - Big Govt

John R. Houk

© January 12, 2011

 

Remember the push for a National ID card? Congress actually passed into law for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to develop a National ID card. The ID card is to be implemented through State Driver’s Licenses. The process was through individual Sate data corruption under guidelines originating from the legislation with specificity provided by DHS. This all began thanks to Congress in 2005. The DHS mandate for State compliance was in 2007. That deadline has come and passed with NOT one State cooperating with the REAL ID Act of 2005. There have been a few extensions since 2007. The latest extension I found is May 10, 2011. The issue has been a combination of Civil Liberties, flawed data bases for the nature of the requirement with the REAL ID ACT and State refusal to comply with the REAL ID Act.

 

Now I see the plusses and minuses of having a National ID card. Without looking up the pro-ID card people I can some plusses would be some greater scrutiny of illegal aliens, placing blood type and other medical information that may needed in case of emergency and/or perhaps other pertinent information that is noninvasive for it is knowable via open public records anyway.

 

There are a number of minuses I could dwell on including the betrayal of my privacy by Federal, State, County and City government agencies that is none of the government’s business. I live in Oklahoma. When I updated my Driver’s License last year I discovered a new thing Oklahoma initiated. No ifs, ands or buts; in order to receive an Oklahoma Driver’s License I had to make a digital thumb print available to the Department of Motor Vehicles. I took a moment to think about that because I realized if I had been in a place a crime had been committed obviously leaving my fingerprints around, I would be on a suspect list even though I had nothing or inkling that a crime was committed. I have to tell you that annoyed me. I was in a moment of “now or never” because of the inconvenience of having to come back if I decided to comply with this infringement. I submitted. My submission to the rules is something every Oklahoman has probably followed through with even with doubts about information about a body part was now a permanent record with the State government of Oklahoma and by extension also any Federal agency that had data access. Probably only the most stalwart of Oklahomans with their civil rights and personal information refused the thumb print process. Those rare and brave individuals are driving illegally with no Driver’s License even though they are stalwart citizens.

 

The thumb print reignited an issue that was going around with Christians in the late ‘70’s and early ‘80’s. That issue was the Federal government going to a cashless society and having the ability to tag individuals with a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip to track or to make available one’s personal information. I became a Born Again Christian in 1978 so that stuff really affected my psyche at the time.

 

Here we are in 2011 and all those predictions for the 1980’s that proved false, are seemingly a heartbeat away from reality. In the REAL ID Act there is talk of utilizing biometrics as part of National data base that will be collated from all the States Driver’s License data. Friends this is more than simply personal information which is bad enough. Biometrics would embed facial recognition into your Driver’s License which would merge into a Federal data base for the government to track you.

 

I had to recall the revelations of the Apocalypse of John which speaks of the mark of the Beast being utilized for all business. It sounds a lot like the biometric Driver’s License is a step toward the embedding of RFID technology in humans which could evolve into a national data base then an international data base mingle with the possibility of a couple of people hailed as peace makers globally and demonizing the existence of Christianity as a threat to world peace. Check it out:

 

15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or[a] the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

 

8 And another angel followed, saying, “Babylon[a] is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.”
9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”

 

19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.

 

2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.

 

4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a[a] thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. ([Emphasis Mine] Revelation 13:15-18; Revelation 14:8-11; Revelation 19:19-20; Revelation 20:2-5 NKJV)

 

Is “the mark of the Beast” a literal “666”? Personally I think not, I believe “the mark” of “666” was a Biblical representation of a future digital mark that may not even be visible to the naked eye. I am not going to fall into the trap that those Christian folks’ of the ‘70’s and ‘80’s fell into by predicting approximate or specific times or dates of the coming Tribulation, any Rapture(s) or the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. That stuff causes doubt and unbelief and adds to the amount of the deceived who exchange the glory of God for an angel dressed in Light which is really a representative of Satan’s darkness undoubtedly painted as Secular Humanism. Nonetheless, the Lord did tell us to be watchful of the signs of times AND those signs are evidence of the Last Days.

 

Regardless the good intentions of the plusses of a National Identity card, you have got to know the minuses either in the present or the future have notorious potential for wicked misuse by human government. I don’t know about you but I am not hip with the government knowing my actions, location or purchasing habits. Even if some of those aspects are presently available for use today in diverse manners due to the lack of the centralizing of data. At least if the data is multiple and divided, government tracking would be slowed down for good citizens or good Christians deemed as bad citizens or SECOND Amendment Conservative law abiding citizens deemed as gun toting Right Wing extremists. Right Wing extremists are those that build up caches of weapons to overthrow the government because of the outright hatred of the national system (e.g. Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists or Skin Heads etc.) or those who have grown weary of the abuse of the Constitution or their interpretation of the Constitution and are preparing to either defending the Constitution against Left Wing abuse or are preparing for a perceived chaos resulting from the dissolving of Constitutional government (e.g. Militia Separatists or  apocalyptic religious groups).

 

It is a surprise to Leftists; most Right Wingers DO NOT and HAVE NO affiliation with any of these groups of extremists in America. To the surprise of Right Wingers; most American Leftists have no actual affiliation militant extremist Lefties. The days of the Weathermen and Symbionese Liberation Army are not as prevalent today but still do exist.
