America is defined by its Declaration of Independence and its Constitution. America is further defined by its English language, its Christian heritage, and its culture of achievement.
Politics is a triangle.
Many people think politics can be described by a horizontal line between left and right. In fact, this horizontal line is but the base of the political triangle. At the top of the political triangle is our Constitution. Those who support our Constitution, left or right, rise above the horizontal line in the direction of supporting true America. As they reach the peak, they converge.
Both the lower-left and the lower-right favor more federal government power over the states and the people. Neither follow our Constitution. This is why both Democrats and Republicans who are not following our Constitution are helping to destroy America.
Who cares about whether Obama is a legal president? Not the Democrats. Not the RINOs. Only those who support our Constitution.
The top believes what our Constitution’s 10th Amendment clearly says:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Democrats betray our Constitution when they give earth-worshipping environmentalists unconstitutional power over America. RINO Republicans betray our Constitution when they give power-hungry neocons unconstitutional power over America. Real Republicans and Americans support our Constitution.
Democrats don’t like HR 1505 because it removes some of their earth-worshipping environmental control over America. RINOs like HR 1505 because they think it provides more security for Americans. Real Republicans don’t like HR 1505 because it betrays our Constitution, trades our freedom for a false security, and is a path to an American Auschwitz.
Denny Rehberg’s proposed “Sheriffs First” amendment is a move toward our Constitution.
Montana Congressman Denny Rehberg moved upward in our political triangle when he introduced his “Sheriffs First” amendment to HR 1505, which, if approved, would give county sheriffs law enforcement power over federal agencies and personnel. The exception to a sheriff’s ultimate authority should be our Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) which may be our only way to remove corruption among local police.
If Rehberg’s amendment is successful, it will give Montana county sheriffs jurisdictionover DHS in their counties. Although our Constitution and the Mack-Printz Supreme Court decision already give county sheriffs this power, having it affirmed in a federal law would set a valuable precedent and make HR 1505 less oppressive, should it pass. Rehberg’s amendment applies only to Montana. It is up to the other states to join Rehberg’s amendment.
In summary, while I oppose HR 1505, I still support Rehberg’s Sheriffs First amendment because it move us from where we are now toward where we want to go.
Now, we will discuss the last amended version of HR 1505 without Rehberg’s proposed Sheriffs First amendment.
The last amended version of HR 1505 replaces Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with US Customs & Border Protection (CRB). However, it is difficult to accept CRB as divorced from its master.
DHS is seven agencies wrapped into one:
FEMA is the one with the small cages to put you in if you do not behave. TSA is the one that gives you a useless body scan before you get on an airplane, bus, etc. DHS is the oneadding its sensors to streetlights around America and the promoter of E-Verify and Real ID as a cradle-to-grave biometric tracking system for every American. HR 2164 promotes E-Verify and it goes hand-in-hand with HR 1505. (See Tom DeWeese: “E-Verify and the Emerging Surveillance State“)
Here are some facts:
The DHS big plan is to expand E-Verify into a global system. New technology is powerful and will become more powerful. Unless you stop DHS, it will control your life. When your government controls your life, you are their slave.
DHS will put your data in the world-wide DHS data banks assisted by DHS partners American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
The DHS goal is a one-size fits all international identification system using massive data banks that contain individual biometric information on nearly everyone in the world.
The DHS ordered specific changes to E-Verify to include biometric information and the use of enhanced photographs that measure and analyze the unique identifiable characteristics of a person’s face into a numeric code, usable and in compliance with these international databases.
Your identifying facial number code will be read by a computer and they can track your face by cameras worldwide. In addition, DHS has expanded the number of data bases used by E-Verify to check on employees. E-Verify is a central tool to implement an international ID system. With it, the government will watch your every move and your freedom will be gone with the wind.
DHS representatives have openly stated they wish to create a national ID card that tells everything about its owner. DHS would like to implement E-Verify and Real ID using an RFID microchip placed somewhere in your body where it would be impossible to extract.
Perhaps in response to an Executive Order in January 2013, when Obama or Hillary becomes our next president, DHS will begin forcefully inserting RFID chips into you and your fellow Americans. All they need to do is catch you in a TSA flight check or at one of their road stops. Once they find you without your RFID, they will insert one into you on the spot. Zap. The pain will wear off in about 4 hours. From that point on, you are theirs, baby.
DHS already claims (unconstitutionally) federal government authority it to set up road blocks and sensors anywhere it wishes on private land within 100 miles of our borders. HR 1505 allows DHS to put sensors everywhere within 100 miles of our borders. In time, their territory will expand to everywhere in America. If we don’t stop them, we can expect to undergo body cavity scans and RFID insertions on our way to the grocery store.
If you know anything about how a database system works, you will understand that once you are tagged like a dog and once the DHS installs RFID sensors everywhere, even in wilderness areas, they can not only monitor you but also control everything you do. They will track you wherever you go and can limit where you go.
They will know who you meet with, what meetings you attend. They will know where you are even when you are traveling in your car on a highway. They will know when you buy fuel and how much. They can limit the amount of fuel you buy.
Consider these novelistic examples:
The DHS guy working in one of their border fortresses will see your ID pop up on his computer screen and say,
“Hey, look. There goes Fred Jones with his family trying to hike to Canada. Go get him!“
Or, if they have not yet inserted their RFID into you, the DHS guy will say,
“Hey, look. There goes someone without an RFID. Go get him and stick an RFID in him.”
“Hey, look. There goes Ted Turner and Bill Gates with their families hiking in our wilderness area. They give us money. Let ‘em go.”
They will control your food.
They will know when and where you go to the grocery store. They can limit the food you buy, perhaps leaving the good food for government employees and restricting you to junk food and high fructose corn syrup. They can starve you, or fatten you up so you can’t outrun them. They can make RFID’s that can terminate you when they wish. Bad boy? Bye-bye.
Thought you would grow your own food?
They will control your water supply.
Given the authority the environmentalists and RINOs have given various federal agencies, HR 1505 opens the door to DHS diabolical control over your whole life.
Think you have a good, reliable well?
New federal water laws give the federal government authority over all water in America, even your well water. So, they can blow up your well. Of course, this is all in the name of saving the environment. “Hey, we can’t disturb the ground water.”
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I don’t like HR 1505. Here’s why.
First, the reasons for HR 1505 are invalid.
The stated reasons for HR 1505 are:
1. Reason given: To stop the turf war between federal agencies. The Forest Service (USFS) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) don’t like DHS on their land. Hmmm. Maybe they have good reasons to keep DHS off their land.
Solution A: Let the county sheriff decide who comes into his county, as according to the US Constitution. This is Rehberg’s proposed amendment.
Solution B: Return all federally confiscated land back to the states. This should be done anyway.
The irony is DHS-CBP never asked for power to overrule land managers or ignore environmental laws. Last spring the Government Accountability Office found,
“Most agents reported that land management laws have had no effect on Border Patrol’s overall measure of border security.”
2. Reason given: Drug growers are hiding the forests.
Solution A: Declare state sovereignty over federal drug laws. We don’t need feds coming into Montana enforcing federal laws that conflict with Montana laws.
Solution B: Stop America’s War on Drugs.
America’s War on Drugs is a scam. It keeps the price of drugs high by limiting supply, so drug cartels and our CIA can make money selling drugs. It hires police to catch pot growers and smokers to overflow up our prisons. But wealthy drug dealers who pay off the police have a free run. The solution is not to give DHS control over our land. The solution is to stop the War on Drugs.
Solution C: Rather than a War on Drugs, how about a massive information campaign in media and schools telling people how bad drugs are? Think we can’t do it? Why did we make Joe Camel illegal? Because Joe Camel proved good advertising will influence people’s behavior. Look at what the government has done to influence people to “believe” in global warming. With massive spending, media hype, and school indoctination they have accomplished a virtual miracle in causing people to believe in global warming when no evidence exists. This proves it would be easy to get most of our population to give up drugs, and this would be far cheaper and more effective than theWar on Drugs.
Solution D: Let DHS prove themselves on our southern border first.
Virtually all drugs used in America come across our southern border and DHS has not been able to stop it. So why should we allow DHS to control non-existent drug traffic our northern border when they can’t stop the problem where it exists?
The National Drug Intelligence Center, a branch of the U.S. Department of Justice, recently released a document entitled the “National Drug Threat Assessment 2011”. The Assessment’s Executive Summary states
The illicit trafficking and abuse of drugs present a challenging, dynamic threat to the United States. Overall demand is rising, largely supplied by illicit drugs smuggled to U.S. markets by major transnational criminal organizations (TCOs).
Major Mexican-based TCOs continue to solidify their dominance over the wholesale illicit drug trade as they control the movement of most of the foreign-produced drug supply across the U.S. Southwest Border. The estimated economic cost of illicit drug use to society for 2007 was more than $193 billion.”
One of the contributing factors is the high demand for drugs in the United States. This high demand finances the drug cartels, allowing them to spend more and expand their operations.
The Southwest Border remains the primary gateway for moving illicit drugs into the United States. Most illicit drugs available in the United States are smuggled overland across the Southwest Border…”
Despite enhanced detection efforts and better countermeasures, Mexican drug traffickers will continue to build tunnels under the Southwest Border.
That DHS would be involved in controlling drug operations begs the question of what is the role of DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration)? Is DHS is taking over all police powers of the federal government?
3. Reason given: To catch criminals who are hiding in the forests.
Solution A: This is a county sheriff problem. The idea that we need HR 1505 to find Dave Burgert who is hiding somewhere in the mountains is ridiculous. He did not commit a federal crime. Besides, he may be found innocent if he could get a fair trial but he cannot get a fair trial. Finding Burgert has nothing to do with controlling our borders. The Burgert problem may have more to do with corruption in our law enforcement and legal systems that should be investigated by our FBI.
More importantly, using the Burgert example shows the real intent of HR 1505 is to control American citizens.
4. Reason given: To stop illegal aliens from coming into America.
Solution A: Stop all the benefits the illegal’s receive free from the American taxpayer.
Tom DeWeese “E-Verify and the Emerging Surveillance State” says,
The fact is, the U.S. government is not doing its job to secure the border and stop the flood of illegal aliens from rushing across it. Even though Congress passed legislation demanding that a fence be built, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has dragged its feet, deliberately holding up the project.
Moreover, DHS is fighting efforts in local communities to allow police to arrest illegal’s. There is little effort to tighten visa security, or allow law enforcement to track down and deport those who stay here past their allotted time. Those illegal’s caught committing crimes are still allowed to leave, only to easily and surreptitiously return at their will. The border is a sieve. There is no border control – period.
DHS imprisons border guards who actually do their jobs, like stopping an illegal from crossing our border. Our Justice Department sues Arizona for attempting to do the border job DHS was supposed to do. Does this sound like they are serious about stopping illegal immigration?
Obama recently announced he would allow illegal immigrants to remain in the US so long as they are not caught committing a crime. As a result, our Border Patrol has halted its long-standing routine searching of buses, trains and airports for illegal immigrants at transportation hubs. This routine has long been considered an effective tool for finding illegal immigrants. Now, these border patrol agents spend their days doing cross-word puzzles.
Do you see a pattern here? All the claimed reasons for HR 1505 are the result of federal laws or lack or enforcement of our Constitution. Now the feds want another law to supposedly cure the problems they created.
Second: We can’t trust DHS.
They are lying to us about their objectives and they don’t need 100 miles to patrol our border. A 1-mile strip along the border is sufficient to patrol our border. The 100-mile demand is about something else.
There is only one logical reason for DHS to install sensors virtually everywhere: HR 1505 is not about keeping bad guys out of America. It is about keeping Americans from escaping when they turn up the heat.
This federal government authority is unconstitutional, thanks to our constitution-impaired Congress.
The DHS-TSA inspections in our airports are a scam and a massive inconvenience. Any good weapons expert can get a weapon by them. TSA is training Americans to accept being fully controlled and body scanned. They are cooking us like frogs, slowly, so we become accustomed to the hot water and accept it.
Working with DHS, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) ran operation “Fast and Furious” allowing our enemy to purchase automatic weapons in America and walk them to Mexico.
According to the LA Times:
A federal operation dubbed Fast and Furious allowed weapons from the U.S. to pass into the hands of suspected gun smugglers so the arms could be traced to the higher echelons of Mexican drug cartels. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which ran the operation, has lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which have been linked to crimes, including the fatal shooting of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.
In the fall of 2009, ATF agents installed a secret phone line and hidden cameras in a ceiling panel and wall at Andre Howard’s Lone Wolf gun store. They gave him one basic instruction: Sell guns to every illegal purchaser who walks through the door.
DHS has printing-press money to hire Americans who have no other source of income and turn them into predators on other Americans.
Third: The SPLC is creating policy for DHS.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), one of the nation’s leading hate groups, has direct ties to the Department of Homeland Security and is helping to write official DHS policy. As well summarized by Tom DeWeese, SPLC runs the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center that trains DHS and other law enforcement personnel in America.
The result of these close ties with SPLC is evident in these reports published by DHS:
DHS Report “A” says:
“Right-wing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movement, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly anti- government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”
DHS Report “B” says the following types of persons are extremists, bordering on terrorism:
Do any of these descriptions fit anyone you know?
DHS has established Fusion Centers in each state to combine federal, state and local law enforcement. Now your local law enforcement personnel are being indoctrinated by the SPLC. The DHS Missouri Fusion Center released the report:
DHS issued its Report “C” to law enforcement agencies as official documentation warning cops who they should consider potential violent terrorists. The list of potential terrorists includes:
Do we need any more evidence that we cannot trust DHS and that it should be abolished?
These 3 DHS reports are sufficient evidence alone to kill HR 1505 and abolish DHS. The inmates are truly in charge of the asylum.
Fourth: DHS is building fortresses.
See those icons of Border Patrol stations on the map?
Those are not your everyday Forest Service public information stations. According to anonymous eye witnesses, these Border Patrol stations are fortresses capable of keeping Obama’s Civilian Security Force (or a Chinese army) housed, fed, armed, and fully equipped to control the population of the United States. These Border Patrol Stations cannot be justified for border control.
These Border Patrol stations are not all on the border. They are not going to stop illegal border crossings. But if an enemy has already captured our federal government (as it has), then these stations are a perfect way to control you.
These Border Patrol stations have large underground fuel tanks (so when you run out of fuel for your home and vehicles, DHS will be able to control you). These Border Patrol stations have veterinarian facilities for dogs and horses (so DHS can follow and find you).
You have already read about how the federal government has purchased almost all the survival food from producers who formerly provided survival food to the public. Guess where this food went. George Soros is buying up Montana’s grain elevators.
With the environmentalists’ wolves, our federal government has pretty much decimated our wildlife food supply of moose and elk and much of the deer. The DHS sensor plan, they will keep you out of your hunting area.
When the shit hits the fan … as the federal government is gearing up to make happen, you will not have a chance against Obama’s federal army.
You thought you would be able to hold them off with your guns. You will run out of ammo and they won’t. You will run out of food and they won’t. You will run out of fuel and they won’t. They will take you in the ice cold weather when you cannot heat your home or even move. They will take you one at a time with an overpowering force any time they want you.
Years ago, no enemy would invade America because we had too many guns. Now, our enemy has constructed a way to invade us from within with government actions like HR 1505. We are allowing them, even paying them, to build fortresses right on our own backyard. We are fools.
The feds will keep a low profile until after the 2012 elections because they don’t want to scare citizens into voting for constitutional representatives. Beginning in January 2013, they will tighten the screws.
Now, I have another question for you:
Given that our federal government has already sold some of our American land and military bases to China, what will you do when they sell the DHS fortresses to China?
Fifth: HR 1505 would take away our legal and constitutional rights.
While it may seem useful to rid our state of some outrageous environmental laws that are causing disasters with our wildlife and economy, the HR 1505 blanket removal of these environmental laws may come at a high price.
The really bad, unconstitutional environmental laws are those forcing non-indigenous wolves on our land and laws that derive from the scientifically unsound and insane delusion that our emissions of carbon dioxide are causing significant climate change.
HR 1505 comes with its own environmental laws to replace those it cancels. The difference is they will be under DHS control. Under the new rules, there is no guarantee about how Montana will be able to control wolf populations, or protect real endangered species like moose and elk. Unless we have authority to control wolf populations we could end up in a worse situation than now.
Another downside of removing the listed environmental laws is they contain important “coordination” requirements.
Coordination requires federal agencies to work with local representatives before approving environmental regulations. Under HR 1505, we would have no coordination rights. The fed would have the final say. This equivalent to giving away America.
Under HR 1505, you will have no legal right to bring a lawsuit against the DHS in a state court. DHS’s actions would be immune from court review, except for constitutional claims. Just as in the case of the EPA ruling against home owners in Idaho, the courts will dismiss our case, saying it is a federal administrative matter.
HR 1505 gives unconstitutional dictatorial power to the president and overrides state sovereignty, which is what our enemy wants.
Here is how DHS does Environmental Control.
DHS-CBP created an extensive Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) to guide its invasion of our northern border. This PEIS says:
CBP is undertaking a comprehensive assessment of the impact of its activities along the U.S. – Canada Border in order to improve strategic planning for any future border security enhancements.
CBP is preparing the Northern Border PEIS to:
The PEIS is intended to:
The PEIS represents one element of the CBP approach to incorporate strategic planning, environmental and cultural stewardship considerations, and stakeholder outreach and involvement to improve accomplishment of its mission in balance with other important sustainability considerations. It is the means for providing your input, comments, and concerns.
CBP maintains a strong continued commitment to early stakeholder outreach and involvement to improve border security, transboundary trade and commerce, and the long-term sustainable productivity of the northern border regional environments.
As part of CBP’s effort in stakeholder outreach during project development, this website was developed to provide you with a resource for learning about the Northern Border PEIS effort, as well as, offer a means for providing your input, comments, and concerns.
Analysis: Notice all the eco-buzz words: comprehensive, strategic, cumulative, alternatives, environmental and cultural stewardship, sustainability, sustainable productivity.
These eco-buzz words mesmerize liberal eco-freaks who run most of our government and who control most environmental organizations. Mention these words and their eco-juices flow in their eco-freak brains like saliva flows in Pavlov dogs. So mesmerized, they do not stop to consider whether the government action is even in their interest. They simply think, “Yea, man. That sounds great!”
Sixth: DHS plans to enforce UN Agenda 21.
On the CBP website, look under “Resources and Documents >> Materials” and you will find their Draft PEIS in detail. Let’s just pick one, “Chapter 4: West of the Rockies Region.” Scan the Contents. Looks pretty large doesn’t it. I see money, money, money wasted.
Their chapter title associating “climate change” with “sustainability” gives away that DHS is helping to implement the United Nations Agenda 21. The first paragraph below demonstrates DHS is based upon the climate change fraud. We cannot have a federal agency like DHS that is based upon a fraud.
4.7 CLIMATE CHANGE AND SUSTAINABILITY
According to the 2009 U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) report, “Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States,” documented impacts to the Nation from climate change include increased average temperatures, more frequent heat waves, high-intensity precipitation events, sea-level rise, more prolonged droughts, and more acidic ocean waters, among others. … In 2010, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) identified global climate change as a long-term trend and global challenge that threatens America’s national-security interests (USDHS, 2010).
For U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the concepts of sustainability and smart growth include the ability to adjust to changing geopolitical realities while preserving the environment and working to improve the quality of life for American residents and visitors.
To reduce environmental impacts and address the challenge of limited resources, the DHS prepared a “Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan” to promote sustainable planning, design, development, and operations. The guidelines aim to decrease energy use, minimize reliance on traditional fossil fuels, protect and conserve water, and reduce the environmental impact of materials use and disposal. CBP’s overarching goal is to size, plan, and carry out proposed development in a manner that is sustainable and that works to preserve and protect limited resources.
DHS has demonstrated its delusional mind set that human carbon dioxide emissions cause undesirable climate change. On this basis, under HR 1505, what is to stop DHS from closing down the Bakken oil fields and all other energy production within 100 miles of the Canadian border?
Their chapter title associating “environmental justice” with “protection of children” is further evidence the DHS is helping to implement the United Nations Agenda 21.
4.12 ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE AND PROTECTION OF CHILDREN
Executive Order 12898 of February 11, 1994 (EO 12898, 1994), titled “Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations,” requires that each Federal agency identify and address any disproportionately high and adverse effect of its programs, policies, and activities on minority and low-income populations.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines environmental justiceas “the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies” (USEPA, 2010).
And they are concerned about the “children.”
Executive Order 13045 of April 21, 1997 (EO 13045), titled “Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks,” places a high priority on the identification and assessment of environmental health and safety risks that may disproportionately affect children.”
EO 13045 considers that physiological and social development of children makes them more sensitive than adults to adverse health and safety risks and recognizes that children in minority, low-income, and indigenous populations are more likely to be exposed to, and have increased health risks from, environmental contamination than the general population (USEPA, 2010).
In summary, none of the DHS track record or written agenda has anything to do with keeping bad guys and their toys out of America. DHS is about implementing UN Agenda 21 and giving control of America to our enemies.
To put it bluntly, DHS is the beginning of Obama’s diabolical civilian national security force:
“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
We cannot afford to allow DHS to grow. We cannot afford to allow HR 1505 to pass.
In this article, we have shown:
Here are 4 things you should do about HR 1505 and DHS:
