Federal Framework Being Set Up To Arrest Sheriffs
Colorado, and apparently Texas (next) are being targeted with an attempt to set up a federal authority framework that will enable Secret Service agents (not just those guarding the president), and others of the U.S. Secret Service including uniformed division officers, physical security technicians and specialists, and other ‘special officers’, to arrest and remove an elected sheriff for refusing to enforce the law [...]

“The welfare work requirements are essential to moving [...]
This kind of thing happens from time to time but doesn’t make the national media what is the reason it became the #1 story across the country? I have to raise the Bull Shit Flag (BSF) on this one. I really think this may be a distract and attack tactic.
Smoke and Mirrors and nothing more? What is the real story the media is avoiding? Maybe the Financial Armageddon? The real [...]

Outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta reportedly believes the military should receive a pay cut in order to respond to the budget cuts facing the Pentagon — a position that might strengthen the Republican push to reverse President Obama’s executive order raising the salary of Vice President Joe Biden and other federal officials.
A little-discussed executive order from President Obama giving foreign cops new police powers in the United States by exempting them from such drudgery as compliance with the Freedom of Information Act is raising alarm among commentators who say INTERPOL already had most of the same privileges as diplomats.
At David Horowitz’s Newsreal, Michael van der Galien said the issue is Obama’s expansion of President Ronald Reagan’s order from 1983 that originally [...]

Embarrassing display highlights disconnect of elected representatives
Jan 16, 2013
In what was supposed to be a symbolic gesture of the enduring greatness of the US Constitution, and the rights it outlines for all Americans, the House read the entire document out aloud on the chamber floor yesterday.

In the midst of the Obama administration’s ongoing efforts [...]
Gun Shooting Big News
Why is it big news when someone is killed by a gun now? Why don’t we flash headlines about the people killed by knives, baseball bats, hammers, otc meds, prescription drugs?

It’s official. President Obama is going to march America down the dark halls of history by following in the footsteps of Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse Tung and all the other gun-grabbing madmen who have exploited fear to achieve the total concentration of power in the hands of dictatorial government.

(NaturalNews) In the wake of the recent Sandy Hook shooting, I reached out to my contacts in law enforcement, military and (retired) FBI over the last three days, asking three simple questions:
#1) Do you think Obama will use executive orders to demand nationwide gun confiscation?
#2) If such an order is given, will you or fellow members of your organization enforce it against the citizens? (And if so, how?)
#3) What is [...]

In fact, he is so adamant on the [...]
