A chilling effect
This is conspiracy, but not a theory. I saw it with my own eyes. It happened tonight at a children’s swim meet in Northeast Florida. I was watching my children participate in the season-opener swim meet, and it was nearly over, just one more race to go. When, without warning, a drone appeared seemingly from nowhere, and began to circle slowly overhead.
A collective hush fell on the crowd of nearly 100 people as the drone slowly but methodically circled overhead. Disbelief was the expression on most of the faces of the people who saw it. As I stood there, snapping pictures and video, my mind began to race and recall some of the drone stories we have done in the last year.
Drones are the calling card of the Obama regime
I remembered New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg telling us that “it’s now Big Brother, and you better get used to it.” I remembered the story we did on how President Obama has now authorized drones to monitor people’s cell phone usage from the sky. Even the story about the Maple Seed Drones developed by US Governmental supplier Lockheed Martin.
Friends, the promise of Barack Hussein Obama to ‘fundamentally change America’ has come true. The America we love and used to know is gone, and it’s never coming back. George Orwell said that the “Big Brother” society he warned us about would take place in 1984. He was only off by 29 years.
Obama was caught up this week in the terrifying IRS targeting of conservatives and Tea Party-based groups who like to pray to God and read the Constitution. Drones are monitoring children’s swim meets, and soon will be an accepted fact of every day life. Obama is on record as of yesterday saying that he ‘offers no apologies’ for any of the scandals he and his administration are currently involved in. And he means it. He is not sorry one single bit, and given the chance, he will enslave America in exactly the same way as Hitler did to Germany in 1932.
Obama is busy now creating his private civilian army that will rival the United States military, as he promised to do in 2008. But he won’t be the ‘commander-in-chief’ of this army.
He will be the dictator.

The immigration reform measure the Senate began debating yesterday would create a national biometric database of virtually every adult in the U.S., in what privacy groups fear could be the first step to a ubiquitous national identification system.
Buried in the more than 800 pages of the bipartisan legislation (.pdf) is language mandating the creation of the innocuously-named “photo tool,” a massive federal database administered by the Department of Homeland Security and containing names, ages, Social Security numbers and photographs of everyone in the country with a driver’s license or other state-issued photo ID.
Employers would be obliged to look up every new hire in the database to verify that they match their photo
This piece of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act is aimed at curbing employment of undocumented immigrants. But privacy advocates fear the inevitable mission creep, ending with the proof of self being required at polling places, to rent a house, buy a gun, open a bank account, acquire credit, board a plane or even attend a sporting event or log on the internet. Think of it as a government version of Foursquare, with Big Brother cataloging every check-in.
“It starts to change the relationship between the citizen and state, you do have to get permission to do things,” said Chris Calabrese, a congressional lobbyist with the American Civil Liberties Union. “More fundamentally, it could be the start of keeping a record of all things.”
For now, the legislation allows the database to be used solely for employment purposes. But historically such limitations don’t last. The Social Security card, for example, was created to track your government retirement benefits. Now you need it to purchase health insurance.
“The Social Security number itself, it’s pretty ubiquitous in your life,” Calabrese said. David Bier, an analyst with the Competitive Enterprise Institute, agrees with the ACLU’s fears.
“The most worrying aspect is that this creates a principle of permission basically to do certain activities and it can be used to restrict activities,” he said. “It’s like a national ID system without the card.”
For the moment, the debate in the Senate Judiciary Committee is focused on the parameters of legalization for unauthorized immigrants, a border fence and legal immigration in the future.

Florida House and Senate budget leaders have awarded Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw $1 million for a new violence prevention unit aimed at preventing tragedies like those in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., from occurring on his turf.
Bradshaw plans to use the extra $1 million to launch “prevention intervention” units featuring specially trained deputies, mental health professionals and caseworkers. The teams will respond to citizen phone calls to a 24-hour hotline with a knock on the door and a referral to services, if needed.
The goal will be avoiding crime — and making sure law enforcement knows about potential powder kegs before tragedies occur, Bradshaw said. But the earmark, which is a one-time-only funding provision, provoked a debate Monday among mental health advocates and providers about the balance between civil liberties, privacy and protecting the public.
Bradshaw said his proposal is a first-of-its-kind in the nation, and he hopes it will become a model for the rest of the state like his gang prevention and pill-mill units.
“Every single incident, whether it’s Newtown, that movie theater, or the guy who spouts off at work and then goes home and kills his wife and two kids — in every single case, there were people who said they knew ahead of time that there was a problem,” Bradshaw said. “If the neighbor of the mom in Newtown had called somebody, this might have saved 25 kids’ lives.”
Bradshaw is readying a hotline and is planning public service announcements to encourage local citizens to report their neighbors, friends or family members if they fear they could harm themselves or others.
The goal won’t be to arrest troubled people but to get them help before there’s violence, Bradshaw said. As a side benefit, law enforcement will have needed information to keep a close eye on things.
“We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor and he’s gonna shoot him,” Bradshaw said. “What does it hurt to have somebody knock on a door and ask, ‘Hey, is everything OK?’ ”
That’s enough for Senate budget chief Joe Negron, R-Stuart, who helped push through the funding last weekend.
He said he met with Bradshaw about the program and “got assurances from the sheriff that this is going to be done in a way that respects people’s autonomy and privacy, and that he makes sure to protect against people making false claims.”
Mental health advocates, however, worry about a potential new source of stigma, and the potential for erosion of the civil rights of people with mental illnesses.
“How are they possibly going to watch everybody who makes a comment like that? It’s subjective,” said Liz Downey, executive director of the Palm Beach County branch of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. “We don’t want to take away people’s civil liberties just because people aren’t behaving the way we think they should be.”
Bradshaw acknowledged the risk that anyone in a messy divorce or in a dispute with a neighbor could abuse the hotline. But, he said, he’s confident that his trained professionals will know how to sort out fact from fiction.
“We know how to sift through frivolous complaints,” he said.
The proposal still needs the blessing of Gov. Rick Scott, who has line-item veto authority.
But if it goes forward, Palm Beach County’s already stretched mental health and substance abuse providers could find themselves even busier. There is no ready source of funds once the $1 million runs its course, as there hasn’t been an increase to community mental health funding in many years.
“Our community agencies throughout the state don’t have the funds to meet the needs they have currently,” said Bob Sharpe, CEO of the Florida Council for Community Mental Health. “It sounds like it could work, but with no new funding we’d have to find it within existing resources.”
If Bradshaw’s teams can keep people out of crisis units and promote early intervention, that has the potential to save money, said Ann Berner, CEO of the Southeast Florida Behavioral Health Network, which manages mental health care payments for the state.
To be successful, however, there will have to be close coordination with the mental health providers, she said. For example, the county already pays for mobile crisis response teams at two nonprofit mental health providers, a service that includes a 24-hour crisis call center. They, too, are trained to de-escalate conflicts and refer troubled people to care. Which ones will respond when there’s a call from a school or a home? That will have to be clarified.
Also, after troubled people are identified by Bradshaw’s teams, then what? Who will pay for their care? The state? Medicaid? The county? The Palm Beach County Public Defender has a good program to ensure qualified people apply for the Social Security and Medicaid benefits they may need, she said. Some high-level conversations have started, but more are needed, Berner added.
“I think that would be an area we really need to collaborate on, and soon,” she said.
The $1 million Bradshaw won represents a third of what he had sought from the Legislature, but it’s a 10-fold bump from what was originally earmarked before House and Senate budget leaders finalized the state’s $74 billion budget over the weekend. source – Palm Beach Post
The feared Police State is already here
We have been telling you story and after story of how the freedoms we once took for granted are disappearing like frost in the noonday sun under the regime of Barack Hussein Obama. We showed you how they used the Boston Marathon Bombings as a thinly-veiled excuse to suspend the US Constitution and roll out 24 hours of a police state. This latest story will send chills down your spine if you’re a patriot. If you’re a liberal, you’ll cheer wildly.
From TheBlaze: A California couple had their five-month-old baby “snatched” by police after they took the infant to get a second opinion on a medical procedure, they claim.
Anna and Alex Nikolayev are described as loving parents who took their baby, who has a heart murmur, to Sutter Memorial Hospital in Sacramento when he started exhibiting flu-like symptoms. The family has undergone plenty of doctor visits in the last five months for the their son’s heart, and were unsettled by the treatment he was receiving.
At one point, Anna says, a nurse came in and started giving the baby, named Sammy, medicine. When she asked what it was the nurse allegedly replied, “I don’t know.” “I’m like, you’re working as a nurse, and you don’t even know what to give to my baby…?” Annasaid in an interview with ABC’s local affiliate, News10/KXTV.
They later found out that medicine was antibiotics, which Anna claims the doctor told her Sammy shouldn’t have received.
After doctors started discussing heart surgery, the Nikolayevs decided they wanted a second opinion. They weren’t categorically opposed to the procedure, but they wanted a different doctor. “If we got the one mistake after another, I don’t want to have my baby have surgery in the hospital where I don’t feel safe,” Anna explained.
The doctors at Sutter Memorial allegedly argued against consulting other health experts, pressuring her to stay put. Anna remained firm. She took her baby from the hospital without a proper discharge, and went straight to Kaiser Permanente Hospital.
Doctors there said the baby was safe to go home with his parents, one writing in the paperwork: “I do not have concern for the safety of the child at home with his parents.”
But while they were at the hospital, police showed up.
“They told us that Sutter was telling them so much bad stuff that they thought that this baby is dying on our arms,” Anna recalled. But when police saw the doctor’s evaluation, Anna says they said, “Okay guys, you have a good day,” and left.
But the family wasn’t at peace for long.
The next day police showed up at the Nikolayev’s home with representatives from Child Protective Services (CPS). Alex went outside to meet them, where he says he was “pushed against the building.” When he asked if he was being placed under arrest, he said they “smacked me down onto the ground [and] yelled out, ‘I think I got the keys to the house.’”
Seeing the scene outside, Anna set up a camera in front of her door.

“I’m going to grab your baby, and don’t resist, and don’t fight me okay?” one officer can be heard telling the mother in the video.
Anna described it with tears in her eyes: “He’s like, ‘okay let your son go,’ so I had to let him go, and he grabbed my arm, so I couldn’t take Sammy. And they took Sammy, and they just walked away.”
A number of news agencies have reached out to police, the hospital, and child protective services, but none has spoken out on the issue. News10, which has worked on the story at length, says police and the hospital both referred questions to Child Protective Services, which said it can’t comment on specific cases because of privacy laws.
Anna says she was told by a CPS worker that her baby was taken because of “severe neglect.”
The couple can’t believe the rationale, saying: “We did everything…We went from one hospital to another. We just wanted to be safe, that he is in good hands.”
“It seems like parents have no rights whatsoever,” Alex said. Originally from Russia, he said the situation reminds him of a “communist regime.”
The couple’s attorney, Joe Weinberger, remarked: “It’s absolutely amazing to me how a government can reach out and snatch a child after a doctor said there’s not an issue…As we’ve seen, there is no emergency situation in this case…I can’t imagine having my baby ripped from my arms.”
He acknowledges that the couple erred in taking their baby from Sutter Memorial without a proper discharge, but it has now been roughly two weeks since the situation began. Anna says she was able to visit her baby for an hour last Thursday. source – The Blaze
The real PT Barnum once said that there is a “sucker born every minute”, and he was right. Nowhere is this maxim more clearly seen than in the slime-stained halls of Washington, DC. Liberal savior Barack Hussein Obama bragged and boasted how his Affordable Health Care Act – otherwise known as Obamacare – would revolutionize health care in America, insure each and every citizen, while not adding “one dime” to the national debt. The only thing he left out was a large order of fries. But today we see how lawmakers who have forced this travesty upon us really feel about Obamacare.
They are exempting themselves.
From Politco: Congressional leaders in both parties are engaged in high-level, confidential talks about exempting lawmakers and Capitol Hill aides from the insurance exchanges they are mandated to join as part of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, sources in both parties said.
The talks — which involve Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), the Obama administration and other top lawmakers — are extraordinarily sensitive, with both sides acutely aware of the potential for political fallout from giving carve-outs from the hugely controversial law to 535 lawmakers and thousands of their aides. Discussions have stretched out for months, sources said.
A source close to the talks says: “Everyone has to hold hands on this and jump, or nothing is going to get done.”
Yet if Capitol Hill leaders move forward with the plan, they risk being dubbed hypocrites by their political rivals and the American public. By removing themselves from a key Obamacare component, lawmakers and aides would be held to a different standard than the people who put them in office. source – Politco
The End Of The Line
RELATED STORY: Obama’s Private Army and FEMA Detention Camps
The United States of America was started by Puritans with the Holy Bible who made a covenant with God for the new nation. America at its inception in 1776 was a wonder to behold. James Madison said this:
“”We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind of self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”
But America in 2013 is not a country that James Madison or any of the other Founding Fathers would even recognize. God and His Commandments have been thoroughly expunged from public schools, courthouses and Washington, DC in general. The murder mill of abortion takes the lives of well over 333,000 unborn babies a year. Right now, President Obama is using the full faith and credit of the United States government to raise money and support for Planned Parenthood.
Obama is so enthusiastically in favor of sacrificing babies on the altar of Planned Parenthood that when he was a state senator he voted 3 times against the “Born-Alive Infants Protection Act”. The bill recognized babies born after attempted abortions as persons and required doctors to give them care.’ Obama voted to withhold that care. 3 times. Under his recently-passed Obamacare bill, abortion is now taxpayer-funded. That means that all America shares in the killing of these babies, their blood is upon all of us.
The lessons from Boston
Last week we watched in shock and horror as two Muslim terrorists planned out and executed the bombings at the Boston Marathon. When it was over 4 lay dead and scores wounded and fighting for their lives in the hospital. But for those who were paying attention, the bombings were not the real story. The real story was the dress rehearsal for martial law that had well over 1,000 armed-to-the-teeth urban police commandos locking the entire city of Boston down while they “searched” for the lone, skinny, 19 year old terrorist who was hiding in a boat.
Boston became paralyzed, not by fear, but by the police. They went from house to house, forcing out people they “deemed a threat” at the point of a gun while making over one million people stay indoors. Why did they do this? Under orders from the Commander-in-chief, the city of Boston used this false flag event to run a real-time exercise in martial law. That is exactly what they did, and was exactly what you saw with your own eyes. They were hiding in plain sight.
By running this exercise – Martial Law 1.0 – they accomplished a variety of things in one event:
- Got the people used to seeing a massive, over-sized police presence on the streets, much like what an invading army would look like.
- They were able to gauge how quickly people would respond when ordered, and more importantly, the people who refused to comply. Everything was duly noted and recorded.
- By using the false flag of the bombings, they were able gauge reaction to the commandeering of cell phone records and social media accounts.
The bombings, the Tsarnaev brothers and the bloodshed were just gruesome decoys for the real event of the single, largest martial law exercise in United States history. And by all accounts it was a rousing success.
What comes next
President Obama has no intention stepping down when his second term is through. But he has no intention of remaining president, either. Barry has much loftier goals than that. Obama sees the presidency as the stepping stone and natural path to complete dictatorship just as Adolf Hitler did before him. The paths of both Obama and Hitler have much in common and are well worth considering.
RELATED STORY: Barack Hussein Obama and the Rise Of Hitler
Obama is going to take your guns, but he will take much more. The plan his handlers have for him involves making a police state out of the entire country. You will soon see why the United States government has purchased 2 billion rounds of ammo and 150,000,000 plastic coffins.
They’re for you.
When the Jewish people no longer wanted God to rule over them, God gave them a king after their own hearts. He gave them the wicked King Saul. America has shown both in word and in deed that it does not want anything to do with the Holy God of Israel and His Bible, so God has given us a king after our own hearts. King Barack Hussein Obama.
Playtime is over, people. From here on in the noose around America will only be drawn tighter and closer.
As you watch your freedoms and liberties fall to the wayside like the chaff on the summer threshing floor, just remember one thing…
This is what you asked for. Forward.
Yes, folks, this is real and happening in Washington, DC as you read this. And yes, our government is trying very hard to pass a bill, under the false flag guise of “security” that would force you to give your actual Facebook password to your employer. In a stunning and ironic twist, a Democrat tried to have the part of the bill that would force you to give up your password removed, and was voted down by REPUBLICANS…believe it, or not.
So, you may ask, why would the government want you to give your employers your Facebook password? Well, why don’t you just think that over as the FEMA Camp train pulls into the station. I am thinking you will soon have lots and lots of free time to ponder that question in your mind. But of course, by then, it will be too late.
From Daily Mail UK: An attempt to ban US bosses from asking employees to hand over their Facebook login details has been blocked by Congress.
A last minute alteration to the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) that would have prevented employers demanding that prospective employees disclose social media passwords as a condition of employment was voted down in the house of representatives.
The proposal, put forward by Democrat Ed Perlmutter was defeated by a 224-189 majority, according to the Huffington Post.
Handing over passwords could legally be a condition of acquiring or keeping a job, said WebProNews.
Perlmutter said of his amendment before it was defeated: ‘It helps the individual protect his right to privacy and it doesn’t allow the employer to impersonate that particular employee when other people are interacting with that person across social media platforms.
He warned of an invasion of privacy and the potential of employers to ‘impersonate’ employees online.
The Democrat initially proposed the password privacy measure as part of the Federal Communications Commission Process Reform Act of 2012 and warned that social media users have a reasonable expectation of privacy.
In a statement he added: ‘They have an expectation that their right to free speech and religion will be respected when they use social media outlets.
‘No American should have to provide their confidential personal passwords as a condition of employment.’
Perlmutter faced criticism from bill sponsor Mike Rogers who claimed that he was trying to kill the act. He said that the issue should be addressed in separate legislation. But previous attempts to counteract the increasing trend of employers asking for prospective employees social networking login details have failed.
The Password Protection Act 2012 was introduced to Senators and Congressman but was not passed
The overall act would allow the US Government and private companies such as Facebook to share information with one another should they come under cyber attack.
But critics of the contentious bill, which initially failed when it was rejected by Senators last year, say that it would bypass privacy laws and allow companies to hand over users’ information to the Government. source – Daily Mail UK
