This coming week on the talk shows, crisis new channels, newspapers and magazines, Americans will be receiving the full persuasive force of BOTH political parties to convince Americans to allow the government to continue gathering ALL of your personal information into their databases. The Obama administration will be presenting NSA plans in secret session to the entire U.S. House of Representatives.
Of course they BELIEVE and say they are doing this for your safety, for national security. They already have your phone calls, your internet communications, your credit card information, your tax filings, tracking you by GPS location, and according to last week’s Supreme Court ruling, they can take your DNA without a warrant and under mere suspicion of an unspecified crime for which you are never charged, and they can impersonate your friends on social networks in order to communicate with you to attempt to trap you. Whether you know it or not, a major part of Obamacare will build a national information database of your health records.
Even if you believe the WashingtonD.C. and mass media push that they are doing all this for your benefit or national security, it is impossible to secure this information from those who would use it to harm you. Think Russian mob, Chinese or Nigerian hackers. It is impossible to secure your information without completely locking down the internet to the point it becomes useless to the public. The President already has the power to switch off the internet.
This past week, the FBI raided the offices of an online magazine and confiscated documents, and claimed authority under the Patriot Act. The documents had nothing to do with terrorism but were documentation about the falsification of Obama’s birth certificate. Despite $80 billion dollars of taxpayer money invested so far in this intelligence system, they were unable to stop the bombing at the Boston marathon even though the Russian government had twice revealed the identities of the two bombers to the U.S. government. In another case, IRS agents in full SWAT battle gear raided at gunpoint the offices of a bottled water company and confiscated documents, but more than a year later no charges have been filed, the documents are not returned, the IRS agent in charge no longer works at the IRS, but the company and its executive’s reputations have been damaged. In a similar case, Gibson Guitar’s offices were raided. The recent IRS scandal targeting Tea Party and conservatives proves once again, it is far too easy for government to abuse its power, and its use of power is frequently incompetent and inept.
The only thing that is protecting you from severe government intrusion is the incompetence and ineptness of the government. But, that government incompetence and ineptness will not protect you from those who wish to steal your information and your property. That same government incompetence and ineptness leaves giant security holes in the databases, software and networks which hackers can and do exploit at will.
Instead of intelligence profiling of all Americans, profiling the bad actors who are perpetrating terrorism is the obvious solution, and then make the information public so that it can be used properly or discredited. Misguided ethical concerns and political correctness have been created by disproven liberal concepts, moral relativism and multiculturalism, and these concerns and political correctness are preventing implementation of profiling. It would be discrimination to target specific groups, but that is the effective solution and strategy.
Islamic sharia, as it exists in its 7th century unreformed state today, is completely incompatible with western culture. Muslims know that and the radicals among them work to change western culture, not to reform Islam, a system which was specifically created to exploit the weakness of other cultures to defeat them and enable Islamic world domination. It has gone so far that our government and media cannot use the words Islamic radicals or similar to describe criminals. Your life is in danger because of Presidential policy.
Former Florida Congressman Allen West ponders, “Can someone explain why we weren’t listening to Anwar-al-Awlaki and his conversations with Major Nidal Hasan? Why weren’t we able to track Carlos Bledsoe’s travel to Somalia and Yemen to receive terrorist training? Why didn’t we pay attention to warning signs of Abdul Mutallab (underwear bomber) with a one-way ticket and little baggage traveling from Nigeria to America? Why weren’t we paying attention to the Tsarnaev brothers’ travels and connections to Chechen Islamic terrorism — heck Russia warned us? Why is it that in October 2011, 57 Islamic organizations — several with ties to Muslim Brotherhood — sent a letter to then counter-terrorism advisor John Brennan demanding we purge training materials and punish instructors they deemed “offensive” and we didn’t say “shove it” and target THEIR records? We’d rather carpet bomb Americans to cover our cowardice in confronting Islamic extremism. Benjamin Franklin said, “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.””
Literally, our own government has become our greatest danger. It is so bad that the U.S. military colonel who shot and killed many members of the U.S. military on a Texas military base while yelling praise to Allah is deemed by the U.S. government to be a workplace accident. The members of the U.S. military who were killed on that base were trained in the use of arms, and could have stopped the slaughter by the Muslim doctor, but a Clinton Presidential Order prohibited our military from carrying weapons on military bases in the U.S. The Pakistani M.D. who turned over information that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden is allowed to remain in prison in Pakistan, while President Obama takes credit for killing Osama. Americans and our friends are sitting ducks, the ratings by citizens of our government are extremely poor and we are laughing stock to our enemies. Honest and peaceful Muslims who might be able to reform Islam cannot do so because radical Muslims are killing eight of their fellow Muslims to one non-Muslim. The U.S. government cannot and does not protect its friends and allies, is unable to identify its sworn enemies, and has repeatedly armed those enemies, while leaving Americans unprotected to die in the field of battle. The greatest danger to our republic at this moment is our own incompetent, inept and grossly large government.
In this coming week, think long and hard before you allow yourself to be persuaded by the President, the Congress, the Supreme Court and the sycophant mass media. It is time to take back your private information, your rights and your country.
