“Government Spying: If I’ve done nothing wrong I have nothing to fear…right?”

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” -Thomas Jefferson

If you have nothing to hide what’s wrong with the government spying on you? If that’s what it takes to keep us free from terrorist attacks, then why not?

So, they can do anything to protect us? “ANYTHING” –strip search our wife and kids in public?

If you have nothing to hide, who cares if they use naked body scanners at the airport, I don’t go to the airport anyway. If they’re doing it to protect us from those nasty terrorists’ well then okay -anything to defeat the enemy.

I don’t really care if they listen to my private conversations, tap my cell phone and upload the content of my computer files at night, I haven’t done anything wrong. Who needs the fourth amendment?

Obama expands Bush’s illegal wire-tapping

F.B.I. can listen to your phone conversations even when phone is turned off.

And if they decide to do random house to house searches in the middle of the night, well sounds like fun!

If they decide to break my second amendment right to own a gun (to protect myself and my family) well after all it’s probably for my own good. They have crime under control. Right!

If they decide to shut down the internet for a couple of months or just my favorite sites, that will be ok, who needs Youtube, Twitter or Facebook? Terrorists could be using those sites and censorship has worked so well for China, Iran and North Korea, that will give me a chance to read a book… I hope.

Obama has the power to shut down the internet!

If they were to enact mandatory curfews and restrict me to my neighborhood or home I could live with that I guess, anything to preserve freedom here at home!!!

And if they arrest me for disagreeing with the government or public officials, well I guess I had it coming. We should leave that kind of stuff to the experts…tv and movie stars.

Once I have my new implanted tracking device with that cute taser add-on for free of course, I won’t ever have to worry about getting lost in my restricted area or better yet, I won’t have to worry about slipping up and giving out some secret information to those terrorist friends of mine, whoever they might be. If they turn off my tracking device, because I said or did something that might be wrong, I won’t have to worry about being able to eat or pay my bills, great an instant weight loss program.

Give ’em an inch and they’ll take a mile.


U.S. Placed Under International Police-State

8 01 2010

In the dead of night on December 17, 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama placed the United States of America under the authority of the international police organization known as INTERPOL, granting the organization full immunity to operate within the United States.

According to Threatswatch:

Last Thursday, December 17, 2009, The White House released an Executive Order “Amending Executive Order 12425.” It grants INTERPOL (International Criminal Police Organization) a new level of full diplomatic immunity afforded to foreign embassies and select other “International Organizations” as set forth in the United States International Organizations Immunities Act of 1945.

By removing language from President Reagan’s 1983 Executive Order 12425, this international law enforcement body now operates – now operates – on American soil beyond the reach of our own top law enforcement arm, the FBI, and is immune from Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

What, exactly does this mean? It means that INTERPOL now has the full
authority to conduct investigations and other law enforcement activities
on U.S. soil, with full immunity from U.S. laws such as the Freedom of Information Act and with complete independence from oversight from the FBI.

In short, a global law enforcement entity now has full law-enforcement
authority in the U.S. without any check on its power afforded by U.S. law and
U.S. law enforcement agencies.

A bit of background is in order here, and Hot Air provides it:
During his presidency, Ronald Reagan granted the global police agency
Interpol the status of diplomatic personnel in order to engage more
constructively on international law enforcement. In Executive Order 12425,
Reagan made two exceptions to that status. The first had to do with
taxation, but the second was to make sure that Interpol had the same
accountability for its actions as American law enforcement — namely,
they had to produce records when demanded by courts and could not have immunity for their actions.

Barack Obama unexpectedly revoked those exceptions in a change to EO 12425 last (week)…

Thus, Interpol now can conduct its operations on U.S. soil with ZERO
accountability to anyone in this country.

And you are beginning to understand now just what the ‘end game’ is on
the part of those who are currently running the U.S. Government?

Let’s go a step further in fleshing out exactly what this means in
practical terms. It gets ugly…and scary. Again, from Threats Watch:
Section 2c of the United States International Organizations
Immunities Act is the crucial piece.

Property and assets of international organizations, wherever located and by
whomsoever held, shall be immune from search, unless such immunity be
expressly waived, and from confiscation. The archives of international organizations shall be inviolable. (Emphasis added.)

Inviolable archives means INTERPOL records are beyond US citizens’ Freedom of Information Act requests and from American legal or investigative discovery (“unless such immunity be expressly waived.”)

Property and assets being immune from search and confiscation means
precisely that. Wherever they may be in the United States . This could
conceivably include human assets – Americans arrested on our soil by INTERPOL officers.

Why would INTERPOL be arresting American citizens on our own soil, without oversight from our own law enforcement agencies? And remember, citizens who are thusly arrested would have no legal authority to demand full
documentation from the International Police concerning the charges brought
against them.

Andy McCarthy at National Review asks these crucial, sobering questions of the secretive Obama order: Why would we elevate an international police force above American law? Why would we immunize an international police force from the limitations that constrain the FBI and other American law-enforcement agencies? Why is it suddenly necessary to have, within the Justice Department, a repository for stashing government files which, therefore, will be beyond the ability of Congress, American law enforcement, the media, and the American people to scrutinize?

At least one answer to these questions is very clear. A coup is underway in the United States of America , the goal of which is to establish complete, unquestioned authority over the citizens–a ‘fundamental change’ to
the United States where citizens have no legal recourse against an
authoritarian central government.
