ObamaCare Fail: Operation Healthy Delta=free health & economic aid at taxpayer expense!

20 SEP 2017 (12:23 UTC-07 Tango 06) 29 Sharivar 1396/28 Dhu l-Hijja 1438/01 Ji-Yu 4715

The U.S. Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Manpower & Reserve Affairs, and the Delta Regional Authority, sponsor an annual event called Operation Healthy Delta.  The operation was started by an act of Congress in 2000 (blame Bush Jr) to provide healthcare to people living in the Delta Region, yet the advent of ObamaCare-ACA has apparently done nothing to improve healthcare services in that area so Operation Healthy Delta is underway again.

This year Air National Guard units from Missouri, New Jersey and New York, as well as the U.S. Navy Reserve, are wrapping-up providing free healthcare (and other aid) to people in the Bootheel Region.  They expect to see between 5-thousand and 8-thousand patients in Charleston and Caruthersville, Missouri.

Operation Healthy Delta is not just about taxpayer funded healthcare, but also includes taxpayer funded economic development across eight U.S. states.

It should be noted that this year’s health services were held at two churches; Charleston United Methodist Church and Eastwood Memorial United Methodist Church: “The local churches have gone above and beyond to accommodate this event. Methodists and Catholics are working together in Caruthersville, and Baptists and Methodists are working together in Charleston.”-Joel Evans, Delta Area Economic Opportunity Corporation

What was that about separation of church and state?

“our sisters and brothers….are being dehumanized.” Death Spiral confirmed! : U.S. Christian Rapture, August 2017

Incomplete list of U.S. Christian shutdowns, layoffs and Rapture oddities for the Gregorian month of August 2017.

“No man can work for two masters, for either he will hate one and will love the other, or he will honor one and the other he will ignore. You cannot work for God and for money.”-Matthew 6:24, Aramaic Bible

I want to point out that across the United States, during the month of August, dozens of churches were vandalized with ‘hate’ graffiti from both the ‘left wing’ and ‘right wing’, proving that ‘christians’ are not united in their so called faith.  Even a Catholic news source admitted that The Church They Don’t Like May Be Their Own.

Francis A. Schaffer Institute of Church Leadership Development: U.S. Census Bureau reports Christian Death Spiral as 4-thousand churches shutdown every year, versus 1-thousand new church openings! 

Alabama: In Mobile, the family of a five years old boy say he was killed by a daycare employee of Community Church Ministries.  The church pastor and his wife defended their employee saying she “has cancer”, the family of the boy has filed a lawsuit.

Arizona: A new lawsuit filed against The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) claiming that mormons sexually abused Native American children of the Navajo and Crow tribes.  Arizona State University Council of Religious Advisors (which includes the LDS Church) expelled the Hope Church from its campus for violating ASU rules concerning church recruitment including the use of ‘front clubs’.  Hope Church can still use the campus for activities but must now pay to do so.  According to the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, Hope Church reported a $30-thousand USD profit in 2015.

California: In Sacramento more than 3-hundred people jammed into Saint Mark’s United Methodist Church, to protest Sacramento County’s skyrocketing homeless crisis. Pastor Alan Jones said “This is a critical moment…..  …our sisters and brothers….are being dehumanized.”  In Palo Alto, the First Baptist Church is accused of violating city zoning laws by making money renting space to music and dance schools, and physical therapists.  A church leader told local news that all the local churches do it because it’s become the only way they can pay for church operating costs.  In Fresno, god powerless(?) to help ‘his’ Saint Helen’s elementary school pay its $500-thousand USD debt, however, the school remains open because a mysterious human came along and gave the Catholic school $250-thousand which then resulted in other humans donating money to save the school!

Colorado:   Another illegal immigrant is seeking sanctuary in a church, this time involving Park Hill United Methodist Church and Jewish Temple Micah, in Denver.  In 2016, Temple Micah and Park Hill United Methodist Church joined the decades old Sanctuary Movement.  In Newport Beach, local Catholic leaders are moving ahead with their plan to sell-off the Saint James the Great Episcopal Church, despite protests from church members and against orders from national level church leaders!   Local church leaders say they are honoring a contract they signed with a property developer (can you say ‘Deal with the Devil’?)

Connecticut:  Another illegal immigrant is seeking sanctuary in a church, this time at the First and Summerfield United Methodist Church in New Haven.

Florida:  Tampa police arrested a man on charges of sexual battery against two juveniles, the alleged crime took place in the Rehobath Faith Cathedral.  The First Baptist Orlando Church held a funeral for two policemen who were shot and killed, local news media said thousands of people attended.

Georgia:  In Pine Mountain, apparently god was angry because he used a well placed lightning strike to burn the altar inside the Christ the King Catholic Church!  The lightning punched a hole in the roof and hit the altar, a member of the church revealed he was of little faith when instead of crediting god he blamed the pagan Mother Earth, and even implied that Mother Earth was more powerful: “It’s an act of nature, nothing you can do about it.  Lightning has its wrath, and there’s no sanctuary away from the elements.”-Frank Boykin

Idaho:   Lordship Church in Coeur d’Alene made the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of ‘general hate’ groups.   Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations told news media they never heard of the Lordship Church.  The church was apparently set up after the pastor moved to Idaho from California sometime after 2014.  ‘Christian’ founded  Walmart suddenly halted 24 hours operations at its Chubbuck store, blaming it on skyrocketing crime in the ‘christian’ Mormon dominated (U.S. Census Bureau data) rural-metro area, revealing that in just one week shoplifters were caught trying to steal about $20-thousand USD worth of merchandise!

Illinois:  An illegal immigrant is seeking sanctuary in Adalberto United Methodist Church, in Chicago.    In what appears to be a gang shooting, two men (one of them being a witness to a murder) were shot and killed on the steps of Friendship Baptist Church on the West Side of Chicago.  Reverend Reginald Bachus ignorantly told local news media “Just about this time last Sunday, we were reminded that the thief comes to kill and destroy, to steal your faith, but Jesus won’t let that happen.”  I just want to remind y’all what Jesus said: “For you truly know that the day of our Lord so comes as a thief in the night.”-1 Thessalonians 5:2, Aramaic Bible

Kansas:  A woman is accusing the ‘christian’ republican assistant secretary of state of terminating her employment because she doesn’t attend church.  The woman’s grandmother testified that the assistant secretary of state asked her if her granddaughter was still going to church and when she said no he said he wanted her fired.  Officially the woman was fired for fighting with another employee.  While reading the article about this I discovered that Kansas has not only a Secretary of State, and a Assistant Secretary of State, but a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State as well (I can see how a lot of taxpayer money is wasted).

Louisiana: A 51 years old man was caught fleeing the New Beulah Baptist Church after the burglar alarm went off.  The man was bleeding from the head and arm, possibly caused by crashing through a church window.

Massachusetts: Homelessness is such a problem that Church of the Good Shepherd held a golf tournament to raise money: “This really is a widespread problem. We have people from all the way from Boston that come to our church for help.”-Natecia Alfonso

Michigan:  Without warning, the facade of the 126 years old First Congregational Church of Detroit began crashing to the ground, instead of blaming god they blamed “age and lack of maintenance”.   Also in Detroit, Saint Albertus Church is now being used as the new stage for performance artist Satori Circus.   Sparta police say a man killed his grandmother, a longtime member of the Trinity Christian Reformed Church, there was no explanation why he did it.  Homelessness increasing in Charleviox, Christ Episcopal Church-Episcopal Church Women held a fundraiser to raise cash for the Christians Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter founded Habitat for Humanity.   Seventh Day Adventist founded, Donald Trump hating, Kellogg Company (aka Kellogg’s) eliminating 233 jobs at its Battle Creek operations by 2018, claiming it’s part of its plan to increase production!

Minnesota: The taxpayers of New Brighton are the new owners of the vacated Korean United Methodist Church, city leaders are using the $1.9-million USD property for a housing project.

Nebraska: Christian founded American Red Cross shutting down its Omaha Call Center, 138 jobs lost due to consolidation operations!

New Hampshire:  ‘Christian’ founded Sam’s Club suddenly shutdown its membership warehouse store in Manchester, 130 jobs gone!  Local news media reported it was a shock to employees and dues paying customers.

New Jersey:  In Berkeley Township the Saint Barnabas Catholic church was vandalized with ‘satanic’ symbols.

New York: God powerless to stop ‘his’ Saint Joseph’s Hospital Health Center from bribing (buyouts) 3-hundred employees to voluntarily quit in order to allow “…St. Joseph’s Health to adjust its operations to fit the future model of health care…” First Baptist Church of Fairport is warning they can no longer afford to maintain the building due to crashing membership.  Another illegal immigrant is seeking sanctuary in a church, this time at the Holyrood Episcopal Church in Washington Heights, Manhattan-NYC.  In Queens-NYC, a man is wanted for stealing more than $2-thousand USD worth of music equipment from the Canaan Baptist Church, security cameras caught him in the act and he knew they were there because he looked into the lens a couple times, even took a break to smoke a cigarette in front of them.  Despite being caught on camera police have yet to catch him.  In Brooklyn-NYC, Catholic leaders are tearing down their 109 years old Our Lady of Loreto church and replacing it with ‘affordable housing’, keep in mind that affordable housing does not equate to low income housing.  Also in Brooklyn-NYC, a plaque honoring Robert E. Lee was removed from the grounds of the vacant Saint John’s Episcopal Church, but interestingly the plaque honors Lee’s service in the Union Army 20 years before the creation of the Confederate States of America!   Just to let you know, atheist George Orwell warned “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”

North Dakota:  On Spirit Lake tribal reservation the Christ the King Catholic Church was vandalized with chemicals and a chrome cross stolen, it was third time in the past 30 years the church was vandalized: “I’m just hoping it has nothing to do with black masses or with devil worship of any kind.”-Reverend Charles Leute

Ohio: Proof food insecurity and homelessness is on the rise in Akron; Celebration Church yet again fed hundreds of people at its once a month Night of Hope event.  In fact, over the past two years the monthly event has served food, clothing and even medical check ups to more than 5-thousand people!

Oklahoma:  Vian Police arrested a man for breaking into, and vandalizing, the Canterbury Chapel Church, the man refutes the charges.

Oregon:  God powerless to stop ‘his’ non-profit Saint Charles Health System from eliminating an undisclosed number of jobs due to a need to cut costs by $6-million USD.  Administrators told local news media that ObamaCare-ACA reimbursements don’t cover the skyrocketing costs of running hospitals.

Pennsylvania:  So much for Paradise, after almost 20 years the National Christmas Center announced it will cease operations in January 2018, due to “some difficult seasons over the past few years”.  In New Castle, the 91 years old Third Presbyterian Church shutdown due to crashing membership of ‘traditional’ Protestants.

South Carolina:  Video shows what appears to be a North Charleston United Methodist Church Learning Center daycare worker sitting on and hitting children.  The church’s man of faith, Reverend Richard Reams, told local TV news “I couldn’t believe what I was watching.”   A woman was kicked out of the Elevation Church for breastfeeding her newborn.  An official church statement was conflicting, first saying there was no such policy at the church, but then admitting they asked the woman to voluntarily leave.   The woman told local news media “If anything difficult arises, they try to hush it up.” The Elevation Church is considered one of the fastest growing in the U.S.

Tennessee:  Residents living around Glencliff United Methodist Church suing the church and the city for building a village for homeless people.  The residents, who obviously don’t realize how bad the economy is, claim a homeless village violates city zoning rules, however, the local zoning administrator told local news media that federal law ‘generally’ allows churches to avoid zoning rules.

Texas:   The man who crashed a New Braunfels church bus was charged with intoxication manslaughter.  The bus crash happened in March and killed 13 people, the driver pled not guilty.   A 72 years old man arrested and charged with stealing $90-thousand USD from the Metropolitan Community Church, where he worked as an unpaid accountant (not a wise thing to get unpaid volunteers to do your bookkeeping).    Apparently the proposed wall between Mexico and United States will isolate the La Lomita Catholic Chapel between the wall and the Rio Grande: “It would be like having a church in a prison.”-Sister Guadalupe Cortez

Utah:  For the first time in 30 years a mormon leader has been excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according to the mormon run news sources in Salt Lake City church officials refused to say why.  By the way, the pro-gun LDS church (with a conspiratorial history of violence) was awarded the Philosopher Saint Shri Dnyaneshwara World Peace Prize in India!

Virginia: In Lexington, there’s is a movement to change the name of R.E. Lee Memorial Church, even though the Robert E. Lee actually attended and led the church in the last years of his life.  Local news media reported the push to change the name caused many old time members to leave.  Two Amelia County churches were burglarized, law enforcement said “Stain drops, believed to be blood, were found at the presumed entry sight…”   Apparently god was angry because he used a lightning strike to burn down ‘his’ 150 years old Rising Star Baptist Church, and it took only one hour to reduce it to ashes.  The fate of the Richmond Christian Center, and its 16 parcels of land, being decided by the court.   The church went bankrupt four years ago and the main creditor says the congregation failed to live up to the court ordered reorganization plan.

Washington DC:  Activists are demanding the Catholic Church officially join the illegal immigrant Sanctuary Movement, they demonstrated in front of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

U.S. Christian Rapture, July 2017: “AND THE CHURCH IS GOING TO GO DOWN….”

“But the root of all these evils is the love of money, and there are some who have desired it and have erred from the faith and have brought themselves many miseries.”-1 Timothy 6:10 Aramaic Bible

“And Yeshua entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves. And he said to them, It is written: ‘My house will be called the House of prayer, but you have made it a den of robbers.’ “-Matthew 21:12-13 Aramaic Bible

“Yeshua said to them, ‘Give what is Caesar’s to Caesar and what is God’s to God.’ And they marveled at him.”-Mark 12:17 Aramaic Bible

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.-1st Amendment, U.S. Constitution

WARN=Worker Adjustment & Retraining Notification

Former employees of religious non-profits might not qualify for unemployment assistance (or even be counted as unemployed): “If the non-profit organization is a church, you may or may not be entitled to unemployment. It all depends upon state regulations for church employers. In many cases, churches are allowed to set their own rules regarding unemployment benefits, meaning the church can choose whether to offer benefits to former employees.”

Harvey: 3 weeks later Rescue Recons continue!

Air and Army National Guard units from dozens of states deployed to Texas to deal with the aftermath of Harvey.  Some units have returned home, some were shifted to Florida when Irma hit, but even now Harvey Rescue Recon operations are still ongoing in Texas.

Back in February a Daily Beast report basically said former employees accused ‘christian’ Beck of being a backstabber. It’s blamed on crashing ratings and the crashing numbers of people looking at Beck’s websites Glennbeck.com and TheBlaze.com.

Arizona: God powerless to stop his Illinois based Saint Xavier University from shutting down their Gilbert campus. Administrators say they are prepping for the possible halting of Illinois taxpayer funding for low income students.

Colorado:  In Colorado Springs, god powerless to stop ‘his’ British empire Salvation Army from shutting down the Cold Weather Shelter. Administrators said their shelter was a temporary short term fix requested by the county, but the homeless situation has become so bad that it “…needs to be addressed as a community.”  Also in Colorado Springs, after three years Curbside Cuisine shutting down multiple lots owned by god’s Young Men’s Christian Association and being rented to independent food trucks. YMCA administrators said Curbside Cuisine wasn’t making enough money off renting out the YMCA property so they’re being handed back to the YMCA. One food truck operator said he got three weeks notice of shutdown: “I don’t know where to move. We have been here all winter and didn’t make any money and now the weather is starting to get better and we have to move. It is not fair.”-Hayder Hassan, former U.S. Army translator now food truck operator

Connecticut: Despite surviving The Great Depression and numerous recessions god powerless to stop the shutdown of ‘his’ East Avenue United Methodist Church.  Church leaders adopted an “off the fence faith” policy by that failed to stop The Rapture, I mean massive loss of believers.

Florida: God powerless to stop ‘his’ Saint Leo University system from eliminating 30 jobs due to “restructuring”. Interestingly local news reports say administrators claim they’re actually creating new jobs. God powerless to stop ‘his’ church organ maker Tadlock Piano Company from shutting down their Dothan store. They’re consolidating ops to Panama City.

Georgia: In Savannah, god powerless to stop ‘his’ Young Men’s Christian Association from shutting down their 17 years old Southside YMCA. But get this, the YMCA is being shutdown by god’s own Saint Joseph Hospital, who owns the property the Southside YMCA is using.

Idaho: In Twin Falls, after 37 years god powerless to stop ‘unofficial’ Mormon Bell’s Family Books from being shutdown by ‘official’ Mormon bookstore Deseret Book! You read right! Local news reports say Bell’s Family Books was facing increasing competition, the final straw being when their own religion opened a bookstore down the street.

More charges of corruption in the ‘christian’ controlled Gem State: A city employee of 14 years has resigned from her job with Idaho City after being accused of taking taxpayer funding. Idaho State Police say she took about $47-thousand USD over a two years period, two other city employees were fired.  According to magicvalley.com in the past year and a half Idaho doctors were paid-off by drug companies, to the tune of $24-million USD of ‘incentives’! Now you know why so many ‘christians’ in The Gem State are wacked on evil prescription drugs!  ‘Suspect’ State Treasurer Ron Crane is now facing wrongful termination charges by a former employee, who was fired “in direct retaliation for communicating in good faith the existence of extensive waste of public funds/manpower and illegality”. In November 2015 five state employees reported to their superiors massive corruption in the Republican ‘christian’ controlled state government. Instead of being praised for revealing the waste of taxpayer funding, they were accused of insubordination! Two were fired!  Idaho state level ‘elected christian’ politicians have so far spent $136-thousand taxpayer dollars on travel expenses for just 75 days of their legislative session! The revelation was made after The Associated Press forced the release of data through a Freedom of Information demand. Not all reimbursement requests have been submitted, so expect the total tax dollars spent to go up.  It was revealed that state taxpayers were forced to pay outrageous three-fold increase in overtime pay to Idaho State Police (ISP) trainees. ‘Christian’ ISP administrators explained, without blinking an eye, that it was mainly for trainee commute times to the academy because there was No Room at the Inn, I mean the ISP’s academy dorms in Meridian, or at the National Guard barracks on Gowen Field! (how many civilian businesses pay their employees to commute?) The Idaho Housing and Finance Association reports that the number of homeless people in northern Idaho has increased 5% since 2015. Local true Christian charities say the homeless rate is actually higher than the official count because not all localities are included in the head-counting, and warned the homeless rate will go up: “Although the homeless number is always interesting, those living from paycheck to paycheck who are on the verge of losing their homes is far greater. That’s the bigger issue.”-Jeff Conroy, Saint Vincent de Paul of North Idaho

Despite boasting of a recovering economy the self proclaimed ‘christian’ leaders of Idaho have decided they must ration the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, incorrectly called Food Stamps). Starting in July instead of getting all their food assistance on a single day, it will be spread over a ten days period, affecting 82-thousand of Idaho’s 1.5-million residents. It was revealed that this rationing of food assistance was actually ordered by state ‘elected christian lawmakers’ back in 2014! The British empire created christian Salvation Army protested the SNAP rationing by pointing out that poor Idahoans have been screwed so much by state ‘christian lawmakers’ that up to 90% of people coming into Salvation Army food banks are there to supplement the meager scraps given to them by Idaho’s SNAP! (as a single healthy unemployed adult male I can confirm that there are plenty of poor people in Idaho who don’t qualify for ‘christian’ state manipulated social programs) This comes as Gem State ‘christian’ led Department of Labor sold its Right to Work Internet Unemployment System (ius) to the states of Iowa and Vermont!    In Boise, ‘christian’ healthcare scammer Saint Luke’s Regional Medical Center has been found in violation of the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). In 2015 an employee reported to the U.S. Department of Labor (DoL) that Saint Luke’s was not ‘coding’ certain time off as FMLA. The DoL reviewed two years worth of “hundreds” of employee records and concluded that Saint Luke’s “…failed to ensure that all employees on FMLA-covered leave received all the protections…” Interestingly the DoL determination, and resulting Saint Luke’s resolution actually took place in November 2015, but only now is being made public! In February I reported how Saint Luke’s was caught stealing local property taxes!   The AFL-CIO’s annual Executive PayWatch survey reports that chief executive officers in ‘christian’ controlled Idaho are paid an average 277 times more than Idahoans earning minimum wage, and 149 times more than Idahoans earning a ‘living wage’!

Illinois: God powerless to stop ‘his’ University of Saint Francis from revealing they laid off 21 employees. Local news media pointed out that the ‘christian’ university is spending big bucks constructing new buildings. God powerless to stop ‘his’ Seton Academy (Elizabeth Seton High School) from shutting down. In 2003 the all-girls schools went co-ed in an attempt to keep itself alive. Local news media said back in 2014 the Archdiocese of Chicago gave the school two years to increase student enrollment and decrease operational costs, it didn’t happen.  In Elgin, god powerless to stop the shutdown of ‘his’ 50 years old Messiah Lutheran Church.

Church leaders say the costs to maintain the old building far exceeds revenues.

Accusations imply the ‘christian’ school was using the taxpayer funding for students to pay-down school debt.  After 122 years (surviving The Great Depression and numerous recessions) god powerless to stop ‘his’ Westminster Presbyterian Church from shutdown after cash strapped members voted to sell the property to Baptist competitors.

Enrollment dropped to just 89 students, below the Catholic church’s new 100 minimum enrollment standard for keeping their schools open. However, local news reports implied the church actually wants to sell the property, because it’s worth $3.7-million USD.

Massachusetts: WWLP created a map showing Catholic church closings for the past ten years.  After 59 years god powerless to stop the shutdown of ‘his’ Presentation of Mary Early Childhood Program, due to the economy: “When we looked at all the resources available we realized we just didn’t have the resources to continue. We wanted to continue serving as long as we could, but realistically we can’t….”-Sister Janice Perrault

New Jersey: In South Amboy, after more than 1-hundred years (surviving The Great deflationary Depression and numerous recessions) god powerless to stop the shutdown of ‘his’ Sacred Heart Elementary School because “…enrollment has decreased by 40 students and the subsidy required to sustain the school’s operation has risen to over a half-million dollars annually…”

“Yes, Pink Pistol Tishomingo is closed as of today. Blake bought it and we don’t know much more. I’ve loved my job there and I love the town!”-Kayleigh

Pennsylvania: Presbyterian/Agnostic Warren Buffett owned Kraft-Heinz moving its Lehigh Valley Grey Poupon production to Michigan, because it’s being paid half-a-million dollars by Michigan taxpayers and $17-million USD by private investors. Also, Kraft-Heinz is moving its Lehigh Valley Tassimo coffee production to Canada, claiming that the majority of Tassimo customers live in Canada. Both moves will cost Pennsylvania as many as 7-hundred jobs! On top of that, in Pittsburgh Warren Buffett eliminating 40 in-house Heinz-Kraft jobs in favor of cheap-o contractors (bet they’re H-1B migrants).  In Lansford, Our Lady of Angels Academy has gone from 8-hundred students to just more than 1-hundred, and god is powerless to stop the shutdown in July.

But wait, don’t think this is going to save taxpayers money, the DoD wants to use the money saved by shutting down bases, and laying off thousands more personnel, on buying even more outrageously expensive high-tech weapons (like robots to replace human personnel).

1st Q 2016: Christianity “It’s for sale, someone can turn it into a restaurant if they want to.” 

FALSE FLAG: BOTH ‘CHRISTIAN’ PRIDE FESTIVAL ATTACKER & ‘MUSLIM’ ORLANDO SHOOTER WERE SECURITY GUARDS!

WARN=Worker Adjustment & Retraining Notification

Employees of religious non-profits might not qualify for unemployment assistance: “If the non-profit organization is a church, you may or may not be entitled to unemployment. It all depends upon state regulations for church employers. In many cases, churches are allowed to set their own rules regarding unemployment benefits, meaning the church can choose whether to offer benefits to former employees.”

Martial Law U.S.A. 2014: Senator reveals true U.S. Shadow Government is in charge, not your “elected” officials! Invokes Idaho’s Frank Church!

“Now you may be a republican, or a democrat, or a libertarian I’m not here to tell you what to be.  I am here to tell you though that your rights, especially your right to privacy, is under assault.

I’m here to tell you that if you own a cell phone you’re under surveillance!  I’m here to tell you that the NSA believes that equal protection means that Americans can be spied upon equally, including Congress.  Instead of equal protection, to them it’s equal disdain.

They don’t care if your white, or black or brown, they care only that everyone must submit to the state.

……Senator Sanders…….he asked the NSA ‘Are you collecting records on Congress?’…..They said ‘Congress is getting the same treatment everybody else is.’……Digest exactly what that means.  If Congress is spied upon without their permission, who exactly is in charge of your government?

Last week….we learned that the CIA is illegally searching the computers of the Senate Intelligence Committee!  They’re the ones supposed to be overseeing the CIA!……if the CIA is spying on Congress who exactly can, or will, stop them?

……I perceive fear of the intelligence community that’s drunk with power!………who is truly in charge of our government?

……The NSA uses an automated system called ‘Turbine’.   They’ve hacked into millions of computers, the NSA as even posed as a fake Facebook server……..to infect computers.

….Your government stores your email so it can access it without a warrant. Your government claims the right to look at your every purchase online.  Your government actually claims none of your records are protected by the 4th Amendment……

.…..your government is interested in what you’re reading, they’re interested in what you’re saying on your phone calls, they’re interested in what you write in your email…….they say the 4th amendment doesn’t protect any of these records.

The NSA is collecting the records of every American………For over a year before Snowden’s revelations, Wyden [Senator from Oregon] expressed concern that the government was acting outside the law……..Clapper [intelligence boss] comes to Congress and lies.  This is a felony punishable for up to fives years, but you hear nobody talking about it!…..

…..Their only regret was that the program was no longer secret…….They’re only sorry they got caught!

…..they don’t believe any of your records have any 4th Amendment protection…..from your [online/credit card] bill the government can tell whether you drink, whether you smoke, whether you gamble, what books you read, what magazines you read, whether you see a psychiatrist, what medications you take…….

James Clapper proposed that it was OK to lie to Congress, and the American people, in the name of security.

…..lying to Congress is still a crime……..it’s harder and harder to believe them when they don’t tell the truth when they testify.

Who knows what to believe anymore?……we must limit government power.

As Americans we don’t deserve ‘the least untruthful way’ from the people we pay for, who work for us!  We have a right to the truth…….we demand the truth from our officials!

…….The 4th Amendment is very clear.  Warrants must be issued by a judge, warrants must be specific to the individual….and a single warrant for a million Americans’ phone records hardly sounds specific to the individual.  Warrants are supposed to be based on evidence or probable cause.

……The President claims ‘Well the NSA program it’s been approved by 15 judges.’  Yeah right!  15 judges most of them ruling in secret, where nobody had a lawyer on both sides….The FISA court is a court where the defendant gets no attorney.  The debate is shrouded in secrecy.  In the FISA court the NSA can say whatever they want and they are not cross examined.  A secret court is not a real court……demand an end to secret courts.

…….I will push for a select committee, styled after the Church Committee that investigated the abuse of power by the intelligence committee in the ’70s……..it should watch the watchers.”

-U.S. Senator Rand Paul, University of California Berkeley speech, 19 March 2014

The water had blasted its way down a full city block, flowing over the sidewalks.

water main break chubbuck nov 5,2011Weekend city crews were working hard to solve the problem.  As of  15:00 hours (3pm Mountain time) they began opening up fire hydrants throughout the affected neighborhoods.

Good thing we got snow; time to start collecting buckets of snow so we can flush our toilets! (actually water was flowing through the taps again by 16:00 hours/4pm Mountain time)
