Office Depot refuses to make copies of pro life prayer

McCarthyism at is best. Now Office Depot is going to inspect the copies that it makes and decide whether one has the right to freedom of speech? I guess we knew this was coming didn’t we. Did I ever think that this would happen in America? No.

Office Depot has refused to print copies of a pro-life prayer on the grounds that to do so violates company policy of printing material that “advocates the persecution of people who support abortion rights.”

Maria Goldstein, 42, ordered 500 copies of “A Prayer for the Conversion of Planned Parenthood” at Office Depot in Schaumburg, Illinois, for distribution at her Roman Catholic parish’s Masses Sunday. The prayer was composed by national director of Priests for Life Father Frank Pavone, a Breitbart News contributor.

In a press release sent to Breitbart News, Pavone responded to Office Depot’s refusal to print copies of his prayer by saying that it was time for pro-life advocates to fight back against an effort to restrict their freedom.

“Let me be clear: Priests for Life, and I personally, have a long record of promoting respect and dialogue with those who advocate abortion,” he said. “Just ask the Father of the Pro-Choice Movement, Bill Baird, with whom I have held joint press conferences over the years calling for respect in both word and deed across the lines of the abortion debate.”

Seattle getting rid of single-family zoning. Utopia soon to follow

If everyone can’t have a single home, then no one will have one. A Utopian dream or an American nightmare? But we knew this was coming didn’t we? Take that we racist, bigoted gun loving knuckle draggers. The first step was the earlier Supremes ruling – turning nice neighborhoods into ghettos. As well as Obama’s latest Rule: Control of Zoning laws, and a ‘Refugee’ in your neighborhood

A crack house in every neighborhood thanks to section 8 housing mandatory on your street. But the government is not done with you. Here we go:

Get rid of single-family zoning in Seattle. That’s the big message in a draft report being worked on by Mayor Ed Murray’s housing committee, obtained by The Seattle Times.

“We can still be a city for everyone, but only if we give up our outdated ideal of every family living in their own home on a 5,000 square foot lot,” a draft letter from the committee co-chairs reads.

According to a draft letter, the city needs to move away from the idea that all families can live in their own home on a piece of land, the Times reports.

The issue is framed in Marxist leftist terms:

The draft letter says that single-family zoning has “roots in racial and class exclusion.[”] The zoning remains “among the largest obstacles to realizing the city’s goals for equity and affordability,” the Times reports.

“More 6-story buildings where there were 4 stories before, more 7-story buildings where there were 6-stories before, and more multifamily housing of all types in areas currently zoned for less density inside (neighborhoods designated as) Urban Villages,” the letter says.

Here is the draft policy ideas from Mayor Ed Murray’s advisory committee. And of course, we all be using public transportation. So much easier to control us. Here is Seattle’s new look. Coming our way.

Clinton unable to name one achievement during her tenure

Wouldn’t you think by now Clinton could come up with some sort of achievement for an answer? There are a number of clips out there as she moves about peddling her book. Let’s focus on this one. If I thought I was sick of looking at Obama, Hillary and her faux smile is getting close to first place these days. I would say she avoided the answer. Maybe the interviews are not quite as friendly this time around?

Clinton Unable To Name A Signature Achievement From Her State Dept Tenure (June 6, 2014)

Civil forfeiture laws – Guilty until proven innocent, a bonanza for public funding

We read about some of the abuses of Eminent Domain because the cases may affect Mom and Pop types. We hear less about asset forfeiture. The general opinion is the victims are drug kingpins, and we are often willing to look the other way. Since the IRS revelation and the realization what an out of control government can do, I suggest we pay more attention to this practice. This study which looked at Rhode Island found that most of the cases were not drug related.

From the Institute for Justice:

The smallest state in the Union can rake in big money from asset forfeiture. Since 2003, law enforcement in Rhode Island has hauled in $15.7 million using the state’s asset forfeiture laws.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Police departments across Rhode Island have seized millions of dollars in cash, cars and other assets in recent years using a common law enforcement practice that doesn’t require a conviction for the individuals involved in the case.

All told, law enforcement officials throughout the state hauled in nearly $15.7 million from 3,786 incidents since 2003 using the state’s asset forfeiture law, according to a Target 12 review of data obtained through multiple public records requests.

Paul King, chief of police in neighboring Pawtucket, said his department used forfeiture money to purchase six brand new marked police units “that we just didn’t have in our budget to buy, and our fleet needed it.”

“These assets have been a godsend to the department,” King told Target 12.

But most of the cases were not targeting drug kingpins. Between 2003 and 2013, the average value of forfeited property was $4,142. Almost 40 percent of these cases affected property valued at less than $1,000. Only 12 out of almost 3,800 incidents involved property worth more than $100,000.

But for individuals who have had charges dropped or dismissed, getting money or property back isn’t easy. One has to go back to court and start a civil suit.

Last year, 22 police departments seized more than $1.3 million from 306 incidents. But fewer than half of these actually led to a conviction. In fact, under civil forfeiture, the government can take property from people never convicted of a crime, or even charged with one. Only a handful of states (including, most recently, Minnesota) actually require a criminal conviction to forfeit property.

Google Executive promoting the idea of microchipping

Google’s executive gives away just what the company has in mind for the future. This is the same company who works hand in glove with the Obama regime.

Below is a video of  DARPA director and Google Executive Regina Dugan promoting the idea of microchipping humans.

Ask yourself, what if this becomes a requirement for authentication and identification? To withdraw money or go to the grocery store? Would you do it?

These microchips would be implanted under the skin, and allow the wearer’s movements to be tracked and store personal information about them. This kind of reminds us of George Orwell’s “Big Brother” police state doesn’t it?

According to a report drawn up by a team of academics for (then) Britain’s Information Commissioner Richard Thomas in 2006, within the next couple of years our almost every movement, purchase and communication could be monitored by a complex network of interlinking surveillance technologies (if it isn’t already). (2) This isn’t about safety and national security, it’s about controlling the human population even more so than it is today. We live in the illusion of freedom where our potential as a human race to create something better is not wanted. We spend our entire lives working and acquiring little pieces of paper to gather the necessities we need, and in doing so we become blind to what is really happening on, to, and around our planet. Many people are starting to wake up and realize a lot of the so called threats we face and have been facing are largely manufactured and fabricated in order to justify a specific agenda, agendas that deal with the black budget world

Move the video up to about 5 minute mark first., The beginning will become more clear how perverse these folks are afterward.

“What we shared is a belief in changing the world from the bottom up, not from the top down.” Obama told Google employees during a 2007 visit to its headquarters in Mountain View, Calif.  (Didn’t Van Jones say something like that?)

Three reasons to be wary of Google Eric Schmidt, the former CEO, he is on the White House council for science and technology, co-chaired by John Holdren. Second point — they are working with hard-core leftists. Eric Schmidt is on the board of an organization called the Politics of Trust Network. You might recognize a couple of other names on that board like Van Jones, oh, and Drummond Pike, the former CEO and founder of the Tides Foundation. In 2010 the Google, Inc. charitable giving fund of the Tides Foundation gave over $145 million directly to nonprofits and academic institutions. Google has made donations in the seven figure range to George Soros is doing that, too, one of farther left political action groups in America. They also gave money to the Trickle Up Program, a big recipient of cash from the Tides Foundation and George Soros’ Open Society Institute. And speaking of George Soros, here is Eric Schmidt saying this about George Soros. “My view of Mr. Soros is that he is one of the most important people in the world today in terms of the impact he has had”.


BLM on the move, seizes Texas Rancher’s land. No compensation

Don’t say we didn’t warn you. In a unreported story that was dumped on Good Friday, we told you this was coming.

Obama proclaims National Park Week – highlights sticking it to us by creating ‘monuments’

Keep in mind that a so-called monument can amount to millions of acres confiscated.

During my time as President, I have been proud to build on this tradition by establishing 10 new National Monuments. These sites honor American heroes from Harriet Tubman to Cesar Chavez. They conserve the diverse wildlife and rugged landscapes that reflect our character as a people. And just as our parks nourish our spirits, they bolster our livelihoods, attracting tourists to communities across our country and bringing customers to local businesses. For every dollar we invest in our National Parks, America generates 10 dollars in economic value. (Oh Please).

BLM Seizes Texas Rancher’s Land – Without Compensation

After Breitbart Texas reported on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) intent to seize 90,000 acres belonging to Texas landholders along the Texas/Oklahoma line, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott questioned the BLM’s authority to take such action.

“I am about ready,” General Abbott told Breitbart Texas, “to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.”

Gen. Abbott sent a strongly-worded letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze, asking for answers to a series of questions related to the potential land grab.

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart Texas, General Abbott said, “This is the latest line of attack by the Obama Administration where it seems like they have a complete disregard for the rule of law in this country …And now they’ve crossed the line quite literally by coming into the State of Texas and trying to claim Texas land as federal land. And, as the Attorney General of Texas I am not going to allow this.”

Abbott challenged the BLM director directly stating in his letter, “Nearly a century ago, the U.S. Supreme Court determined that the gradient line of the south bank of the Red River—subject to the doctrines of accretion and avulsion—was the boundary between Texas and Oklahoma. Oklahoma v. Texas, 260 U.S. 606 (1923). More recently, in 1994, the BLM stated that the Red River area was “[a] unique situation” and stated that ‘[t]he area itself cannot be defined until action by the U.S. Congress establishes the permanent state boundary between Oklahoma and Texas.’  Further, the BLM determined that one possible scenario was legislation that established the ‘south geologic cut bank as the boundary,’ which could have resulted ‘in up to 90,000 acres’ of newly delineated federal land.  But no such legislation was ever enacted.”

Navy SEALS ordered to remove Navy Jack patch from uniforms

Of course we know why they are doing this don’t we? Anyone who might stand in the way of this regime is a danger to it. Even a hint of a reminder. I find it particularly offensive when this regime goes after those who are willing to go to the front lines and give their blood for our country.  Why is the flag being removed?  “The Jack is too closely associated with radical groups.” We must assume that  this thought policeman embedded in the SEAL community is speaking of the Tea  Party, whose flag (which also dates from the American Revolution) depicts a  snake with the same defiant slogan as The Navy Jack. Recall this earlier post: We know of the indoctrination at our Academies:

West Point Think Tank warns of dangerous “Conservatives”

The report issued this week by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., is titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.” And just who are these “Violent Far-Right” folks?

It says anti-federalists “espouse strong convictions regarding the federal government, believing it to be corrupt and tyrannical, with a natural tendency to intrude on individuals’ civil and constitutional rights. Finally, they support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self-government. Extremists in the anti-federalist movement direct most their violence against the federal government and its proxies in law enforcement.”

The report also draws a link between the mainstream conservative movement and the violent “far right,” and describes liberals as “future oriented” and conservatives as living in the past.

“The far right represents a more extreme version of conservatism, as its political vision is usually justified by the aspiration to restore or preserve values and practices that are part of the idealized historical heritage of the nation or ethnic community.”

The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’  flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a  beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This  symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence,  flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to  today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly  states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the  duration of the War on Terror.

So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the  proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama?

Clearly the administration and sycophant “top brass” officers have degraded  America’s military prestige; from hand-tying rules of engagement, to uniform  regulations that make our military allegedly more compatible with foreign  forces, to the banning of an awe-inspiring flag that traces its roots to the  first U.S. Navy. We have a civilian-led military, but why should our ranking  commanders be complicit in the administration’s war on it? Why don’t they stand  up to Obama and his leftist cronies?

When a friend of mine asked his leadership the same question, he was told,  “The Jack is too closely associated with radical groups.” We must assume that  this thought policeman embedded in the SEAL community is speaking of the Tea  Party, whose flag (which also dates from the American Revolution) depicts a  snake with the same defiant slogan as The Navy Jack.

This begs yet another question: Who defines “radical group”? The last time I  checked, all military personnel are under oath to “support and  defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” The Tea  Party stands for constitutional rights and founding principles of civil  liberties and limited government. Radical? Not unless you’re a leftist hell-bent  on destroying the foundations of our country. Or as the President has stated as  the objective of his presidency, “to fundamentally transform” America.
