Tonight, Barack Obama Will Demand The Right to Create Enemies Lists

Obama-angry-10

Bearing Arms

Tonight, President Barack Obama is going to attempt a common magic trick in an attempt to make the Constitutional rights of all Americans disappear:

“We know that the killers in San Bernardino used military-style assault weapons — weapons of war — to kill as many people as they could,” the president said in a video released Saturday. “It’s another tragic reminder that here in America it’s way too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on a gun.”

“Right now, people on the no-fly list can walk into a store and buy a gun. That is insane,” the president said. “If you’re too dangerous to board a plane, you’re too dangerous, by definition, to buy a gun.”

He called on Congress to close the loophole, saying that while the nation may not be able to prevent every tragedy, “at a bare minimum, we shouldn’t be making it so easy for potential terrorists or criminals to get their hands on a gun that they could use against Americans.”

Obama is addressing the nation tonight, and you’re going to see him attempt to say one thing, and do another.

Obama is going to claim that he wants to summarily strip the constitutional rights of Americans citizens and resident aliens on the “no fly” list without due process, in clear violation of the Constitution. He does not have evidence that anyone on this list is about to commit a crime, or the FBI would arrest them. Instead, he’s asking to “Minority Report” them, and strip them of their liberties because they might one day commit crimes.

But it’s even worse that it seems.

EPA: Time to Abolish, Not Merely Restrict

The New American

The federal SWAT team of nearly two dozen heavily armed agents from the EPA, FBI, and other agencies descended on the Canal Refining Co. in Church Point, Louisiana. Their target: Hubert P. Vidrine, Jr., the plant manager. His crime? Allegedly storing hazardous materials. His employees were herded up and treated like criminals. They were prevented from using the restrooms for several hours, as well as being denied the right to call their homes and daycare centers to make plans to have their children picked up.

That was in September 1996. It took the federal government more than three years, until December 1999, to indict Mr. Vidrine on one count of illegally storing a hazardous substance, during which time his name was publicly dragged through the mud, his liberties were greatly limited under pre-trial probation, and his family’s finances were devastated. The case against Mr. Vidrine turned out to be completely bogus, a malicious fabrication. The federal prosecutors, realizing they would lose in court, dropped all charges before the start of the trial. On September 30, 2011, 15 years after being subjected to the grief and humiliation of the EPA’s initial assault, Mr. and Mrs. Vidrine received a measure of redress, in the form of a decision by U.S. District Judge Rebecca Doherty awarding them $1,677,000.00 in damages and legal costs.

 

“This Court finds probable cause did not exist to indict Hubert Vidrine, nor to doggedly pursue him for close to four years,” said Judge Doherty. Moreover, she noted, the EPA’s Keith Phillips “acted with malice” and “set out with intent and reckless and callous disregard for anyone’s rights other than his own … to effectively destroy another man’s life.”

Stop Trying to Take Our Guns!

Joe For America

I don’t know about you, but the senseless death this week of the Canadian soldier, Corporal Nathan Cirillo, who was shot and killed at Canada’s National War Memorial in Ottawa, left me devastated.

When I look at the photograph of him with his dog, I cry as if he were my own son or brother. I cried even more, when I subsequently found out that he left behind a wife and young daughter.

At first, I was in disbelief, then I became angry, then saddened, then angry again. It’s where I find myself now.

Pilot Claims He was fired for not Signing Away His Constitutional Rights – Warns of Illegal Muslims flying into US

Freedom Outpost
We are all aware of the Obama administration’s orchestrated invasion of illegals across our southern border. There is no debate in the matter that it was purposeful. We have also been aware that this lawless administration has paved the way for tens of thousands of Muslims from Syria to receive asylum via New Jersey. Earlier this year, a pilot by the name of Dennis Welky claimed that he was fired because he would not sign a waiver of his constitutional rights.

In January 2014, Welky said that he received an email from the chief pilot of the airline company he worked for, Kalitta. According to the email, there were new requirements that had to be met by all pilots regarding security risk assessments (think TSA).

According to Welky, an action was required on his part to continue his job with the company as a pilot. Welky alleged that the TSA wanted him to sign a waiver to “give up a whole boatload of constitutional rights, regarding security risk assessments as an United States, American commercial pilot.”

Welky says that he knows of only one other pilot in the organization that received the email and that pilot didn’t read the information, but merely signed it to keep his job. He then read the notable portion of the email:

“Please carefully read the statement again, and reconsider your decision. One of the conditions of employment at Kalitta Charters is being enrolled in a status 12.5 security program (at least that’s what it sounds like he is saying). If you select not to agree/participate, we will unfortunately have to make January 14, 2014 your last day of employment with Kalitta Charters.”

Welky performed “135 unscheduled, on-demand charter type work throughout the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, and Hawaii.” Now, he was facing termination for not submitting to what can only be described as unethical practices.

At least one pilot that spoke to Sons of Liberty Media anonymously told us that commercial pilots throughout the industry are aware of Kalitta and what they perceive as unethical practices by the company’s owner Conrad Kalitta. “He’ll do anything for a buck,” an anonymous pilot told us. “And he will find a way to fire you for absolutely no reason,” he added, referencing conversations he had with other pilots who had worked for Kalitta to gain flight time.

 

According to Kalitta’s own website:

“Kalitta Charters is an approved air carrier for the US Department of Defense, US Department of Justice and US Department of Energy, operating critical missions across the globe”

“When it comes to transporting critical cargo safely, securely and on time around the world, no one does it better than us. After all, the Kalitta family began airfreight operations back in 1967. If it fits inside an airplane, we’ve probably flown it – and if we haven’t, we’ve got the team to make it happen”

Mr. Welky is the first American pilot that is known to have stood up against this and is the first American pilot to be fired for his stand. If that wasn’t disturbing enough, Welky went on to describe how thousands of illegal Muslims are being flown into the US in airplanes that have been marked as “empty.”

The former Kalitta Charter pilot recalled Tennessee Rep. Rick Womick (R), a former Air Force pilot and commercial Boeing 777 airline pilot, admitted to flying five flights with Somali immigrants on board from London to New York City. According to Dennis, Womick said that flights would leave the US, land in the UK and be designated as empty for return, but the reality is that every seat would be filled with illegal Muslims. As he landed on the east coast as instructed, he would taxi right past immigrations and customs. The illegals were let off the airplane, given thousands of dollars, along with other benefits.

Understand that he is confessing to a crime before an audience of people. He didn’t just do it once. He did it multiple times!

Welky had some choice words for Rep. Womick, which I fully agree with. Womick was the pilot in command. He had the final say and he knew he wasn’t supposed to be doing this, but he did it anyway, not once, but on several occasions.

Womick, according to federal law is an accomplice to the crime here. He knowingly flew illegals into the country, yet instead of anyone holding him accountable, everyone thinks it’s just fine for Womick to be declared a whistleblower and let off the hook.

All of this is in line perfectly with Obama’s own solution of flying in illegals directly to the US earlier this year.

Friends, this is why it is important to know who your representatives are. Womick is one that aided illegal Muslims to enter the United States and now he has been calling for Muslims to not be allowed to serve in the US military? Can you say hypocrisy? I can. Womick should be brought up on charges for aiding an illegal invasion of Muslims into the US, and Mr. Welky’s story should be told far and wide until something is done about it.

Another Government Grab Battle Waged Against Property Owners In Colorado

The attack on the Metcalf power substation in April 2013 came very close to shutting down the electrical grid for Silicon Valley. The WSJ reported that in the 30 minute attack “snipers opened fire on a nearby electrical substation. Shooting for 19 minutes, they surgically knocked out 17 giant transformers that funnel power to Silicon Valley. A minute before a police car arrived, the shooters disappeared into the night.”

“This wasn’t an incident where Billy-Bob and Joe decided, after a few brewskis, to come in and shoot up a substation,” Mark Johnson, a retired vice president of transmission for the utility PG&E, the company operating the Metcalf substation. “This was an event that was well thought out, well planned and they targeted certain components.”

Regulators and the utility industry have long worried about the physical security of the U.S. electrical grid, but there is disagreement on how much more can be done to keep the grid safe. FERC has already required utilities to establish minimum security standards for the grid.

“I don’t want to downplay the scenario [a former FERC commissioner] describes,” Gerry Cauley, chief executive of the North American Electric Reliability Corp., a body that reports to FERC. “I’ll agree it’s possible from a technical assessment.”

Cauley said that even if some substation were taken offline, most people would have their power back within a few hours. A more pressing worry form utilities is the threat of cyber attack on the grid. There have been 13 reported cyber incidents in the last three years, according to the WSJ, though no major outages have yet been linked to these events.

The WSJ also notes that there were “274 significant instances of vandalism or deliberate damage in the three years, and more than 700 weather-related problems.”

Gateway Pundit

Andy and Ceil Barrie have been battling the Summit County commissioners who decided to seize the Barrie’s property. Similar to the Bundy Ranch battle in recent news, these government officials give lame excuses to justify their unconstitutional property grabs. This constant overreach at the hands of bureaucracies are an assault against American taxpayers, along with an assault against our constitutional rights in the pursuit of happiness (granted to us by our Creator).

Wouldn’t it be nice if the government put as much energy—not to mention the use of taxpayer funds—into protecting the US border?

Fox News reports the following:

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. –  ”They’re spending us to death,” said landowner Andy Barrie. 

He is not talking about property taxes, inflation or even the cost of skiing in glitzy ski country. Rather, he’s talking about the legal fight he and his wife have been waging to save their pristine piece of mountain property — with breathtaking views of Colorado’s high country — from being taken over by the county through eminent domain.

Their battle is a unique test of private property rights. […]

The isolated parcel is surrounded by 2.2 million acres of White River National Forest, and is essentially an island of private property. It includes an old mining cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold mine. The area is popular with hikers. 

The couple’s trouble started when the U.S. Forest Service took them to task for using a utility vehicle to drive from their main residence to their cabin. They say they never went off-road, and petitioned for the path to be declared a county road. 

The county, though, responded by trying to buy the Barries’ higher-elevation property in order to protect and preserve it as open space. The Barries, who never had any plans to develop it, did not want to sell. 

That’s when the county pulled their trump card. 

Unbeknownst to the Barries, the previous owner had remodeled the cabin without permits. So Summit County commissioners voted to condemn the property for wiring and plumbing (even though the cabin has none) and filed for eminent domain

“I understand that we are all trying to save these beautiful mountains and make them accessible to everyone, but you know that property has been sitting there since President Garfield signed our land patent, and we’re not doing anything bad there,” Ceil Barrie said. 

Last week, the two sides participated in required, formal mediation with a judge. Summit County, which refused interview requests, released a statement saying: “Both parties engaged in productive negotiations in pursuit of a voluntary settlement regarding the purchase. … We are optimistic that a resolution will be reached within a matter of weeks, if not days.” 

The Barries’ hopes are dimming. Asked if recent mediation pointed to a way for the Barries to keep the land in the family name and avoid eminent domain, Andy Barrie responded flatly, “No, they’re taking it.”  […]

Will Obama Keep Power ‘by Any Means Necessary’?

American Thinker

Let’s  go there: if Obama thinks he’s losing, will he allow safe and fair elections on  November 6?  And if he does lose, will he peacefully turn over power to  Mitt Romney on January 20, 2013?  Or will he cling to power “by any means  necessary,” as a highly placed insider alleges?

Now,  I’m truly sorry to raise such disgusting, un-American, crazy-sounding questions,  but, alas, they’re not crazy, and I’ve got a disquieting amount of  evidence.  The Democrats have already accused Romney of murdering a woman  with cancer, financial felonies, and not filing  taxes for ten years — the last charge delivered by Senate Majority  Leader Harry Reid on the Senate floor, on the basis of absolutely no evidence  whatsoever.

By  Democrat standards, I’ve got enough proof to put away Obama, et al. for life  without parole.

TSA Defends Treating 4-Year-Old Like Terrorist

By Todd Starnes, Fox News & Commentary

A Montana woman said Transportation Security Administration officers at  Wichita Mid-Continent Airport declared her four-year-old daughter a “high  security threat” after the child hugged her grandmother at a security checkpoint — and called for backup after the little girl refused their demands to stop  crying.
