The TPP and the War on Terror: End of the First Amendment

Much has been said about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a disturbing trade agreement which has been negotiated in secrecy from Bush II through Obama. Civil liberties groups such as the EFF, and even Congress itself, have been fighting to get in on this, but only leaked portions of the TPP are available. Most recently Wikileaks got the portions dealing with copyright law, the Internet, and drug patents.

While these anti-technology, pro-Dark-Ages provisions are dreadfully disturbing, there is an even more frightening aspect of the TPP which most are ignoring – the arbitration system. Corporations can not only use this system to “sue” each other, but can “sue” governments themselves, including on the grounds that trade is threatened in that country in some way. Any government who uses their laws, politicians, judges, and constitutions in defiance of the arbitration system can be fined and penalized with trade sanctions.

The UN disarmament treaty, in addition to civilian gun elimination, equalizes all nations’ militaries, crippling America’s military resources and improving Iran’s. When the UN disarmament treaty coexists with the TPP, all nations become equal and weak.

America is dependent on the international flow of oil. Without oil, there is no America. OPEC nations, most of which are terrorist sharia states or otherwise have a large Muslim influence, will be able to use the TPP to destroy the First Amendment.

Terrorist attacks and assassinations frequently occur after people insult Muslims or honestly portray Muhammad and the Quran. The Muhammad cartoons in Denmark, Geert Wilders’ movie Fitna, Theo Van Gogh’s movie Submission, the attempts to show and re-air images of Muhammad in South Park, and the subsequent Everybody Draw Muhammad Day campaign on Facebook, have all resulted in threats, injuries, murders, assasinations, and terrorist attacks, all committed by Muslims who want to destroy secular democratic republics and force their governments of dismemberment, castration, beheading, and stoning, on Israel and on all the world.

The TPP makes this brutality ever more possible. When an individual, company, or religious group living under a secular democratic republic exercises their rights to freedom of religion, speech, and the press in a way that offends Muslims, there will be assassinations, bombing of oil wells and oil fields, destruction of military equipment, and more.

These resources are owned by multinational corporations, who are loyal to no flag. Resources may be crucial to another government, as Iranian oil is to Russia. Those who speak the truth about Islam and the Quran, and their government, will be taken to the TPP’s tribunal. All of these people will be liable for the terrorists’ destruction of the resources, and will pay severely with their wallets, freedoms, and perhaps even their lives. In other words, if you criticize Islam, you will be a terrorist.

When discussing, debating, and analyzing part or all of the TPP, we need to go deeper into the consequences of surrendering America. So long as this arbitration system is left in place, all other provisions are irrelevant. With the TPP, there is absolutely no way to know what’s in it, whether we pass it or not.

Abortion Mandate at the Supreme Court: How Obamacare Outlawed Catholicism

Obamacare is again at the Supreme Court. The parties in this suit are private businesses (including Hobby Lobby, Autocam, and Conestoga Wood Specialties) whose owners come from various Christian denominations which oppose abortion, artificial birth control, or both, and must now pay for these practices in their employees’ health insurance copays.

The Catholic Church, the world’s largest Christian denomination, has for centuries opposed both abortion and artificial birth control. Due to their large membership and financial and political influence, the Catholic Church has long been one of the most prominent figures when the sanctity of human life is in jeopardy.

Obamacare’s abortion mandate is of particular concern to Catholicism. Unlike other denominations of Christianity, the abortion mandate essentially outlaws Catholicism in the United States.

How does Obamacare outlaw Catholicism, you ask? To find out, we must first look at the structure of the Catholic Church.

Contrary to popular opinion, “the Catholic Church” is not directly run by the Pope. Catholicism is an apostolic denomination, meaning that all bishops are successors of the Apostles, with the Bishop of Rome (then St. Peter) as the leader. Dioceses, monasteries, and convents run their own schools, parishes, charities, hospitals, advocacy groups, and other organizations. The Pope may issue an order or otherwise get involved in a situation, and his decision is final, but otherwise Catholic institutions are autonomous. This is similar to the “United States are” government existing between 1789 (beginning of the current Constitution) and 1868 (ratification of the 14th Amendment and the beginning of “selective incorporation”)

Secondly, we must remember that in the Catholic faith, good works are a requirement, and as a result there are many viable charities, hospitals, and similar organizations run by Catholic clergy or by lay Catholics.

Finally, we must remember that Catholicism extends beyond the pews to the everyday lives of the faithful. This was emphasized and promoted by the council of Vatican II.

Thus with Obamacare, it not just clergy-run hospitals and charities, but businesses small and large which are run by individual Catholics, who must now propagate the Left’s genocide of the unwanted (abortion), against their will, against their faith. Unless the abortion mandate is overturned by the Supreme Court, Catholicism will be essentially outlawed in America.

The Supreme Court has done this before, namely with Rastafarianism and several American Indian tribal religions. Marijuana, peyote, and similar drugs are held to be sacred within these religions, and ceremonies which make use of them have been criminalized in the United States. Catholics have long rejected abortion and artificial birth control, and unless the Supreme Court overturns this mandate, Catholics will be forced against their will to promote these practices and engage in them.

The Left has been very successful in promoting alternative lifestyles through the media, political correctness, smear campaigns, personal attacks, and the education system. Banking on the likelihood of contracting herpes vs. dying of HIV/AIDS, schools no longer teach about sexually transmitted diseases – these are now mere “infections” which can be simply ignored. Cultural liberals who live and support alternative lifestyles would love to make abortion as trivial as a monthly checkup, and without the Catholic Church in their way, this is ever more possible.

Another cause for concern is Pope Francis. Having backtracked on his initial opposition to the homosexual agenda, Pope Francis has made several rather disturbing comments regarding the sanctity of life and traditional family values, including ordering bishops to stay silent on abortion, calling the Religious Right “mentally sick”, and now calling for outright socialism. Both extremely-free-market capitalism and socialist forms of government were condemned at Vatican II, and being a Church council, Vatican II’s condemnation of socialist government is infallible dogma. If the Supreme Court were to set the abortion mandate in stone, will Pope Francis stand up against Obamacare’s genocide of the unwanted, or will he continue his shady agenda to “reach out” to non-practicing Cafeteria Catholics? How will the rest of the Catholic clergy and lay Catholic institutions react to all of this? And how will other Christians, and all Americans, be affected?

We must hope, and pray, that the Supreme Court will not destroy Catholicism in America.

Are NSA Conspiracies A Conspiracy?

In recent months, we have seen the reputation of the US government, both internationally and domestically, fall to new lows. Due in part to the President Obama and the NSA, the rest of the “free world” wants nothing to do with the United States, breaking long-standing assumptions about the democratic peace theory (that is, the theory that serious conflicts and wars between democratic nations are rare).

The NSA has received some bad press regarding their activity, which is illegal, as the NSA has no jurisdiction over domestic American activity. Yet the Mainstream Media 1.0 continues to paint whistleblower Edward Snowden as a “traitor” for merely exposing illegal activity. Yahoo, one of the many major corporations who cooperated with the NSA’s Mafioso behavior, claims they were threatened by the NSA to be deemed as “traitors” as well if they did not comply. Snowden now lives in exile, protected by the lip-service “free” country of Russia.

However, the NSA’s illegal activities are not recent news. Individual PRISM-like incidents have been exposed through the 90s and 2000s, and now-proven conspiracy theories filled in the gaps.

In the mid-to-late 1990s, when mass-market Internet access was in its infancy, the NSA attempted several times to promote a “Clipper chip” and “key escrow”, where all computers in the US would have a backdoor for law enforcement. The pre-neocon, then-free-market Republicans successfully fought Clinton and the NSA. The pre-9/11 small-government Republicans also deregulated munitions laws, and many of the forms of encryption backing what we enjoy today were allowed for individual and corporate use.

Some of you may remember, back in the late 90s, when your bank told you to upgrade your browser, based on “128-bit HTTPS” replacing “56-bit HTTPS”. This was due to the Data Encryption Standard (DES), which was developed by the NSA in the 1970s. Its invulnerability was considered scientific fact until it was cracked in 1999 in less than a day. The NSA continued to play catch-up with slightly-better security that led to a conspiracy theory – the NSA intentionally made things second-best. Thanks to Snowden, this has been proven true.

Also in 1999, a group of Canadian researchers discovered that since Windows 95, a Windows security file contained the mysterious English word “NSAKEY” among its secret computer code. Microsoft claimed that the English meant that the secret code complied with NSA standards. This created “another Microsoft conspiracy theory”. Thanks to Edward Snowden, this has been proven true.

TIA Logo

In 2002, Bush II began a program identical to PRISM called Total Information Awareness, known for its creepy “Illuminati style” logo. The program was supposedly shut down after complaints by members of Congress. Thanks to Edward Snowden, this has been proven false.

In 2005, “PRISM” as applied to the telephone companies, including AT&T and Verizon, was exposed. This made Bush II a felon, and various lawsuits against the telephone companies and the NSA were filed. Congress, including the “Impeach Bush” Democrats, granted all the guilty parties immunity, ending the lawsuits.

There are countless other examples going back as far as the 70s, above are simply the most notable ones. The NSA developed something new, and if you questioned the motives of the NSA, even when pointing out the NSA’s history or the reputations and connections of the people behind these developments, you were “paranoid”.

With all these examples over the past few decades, why is this only “proven fact” now? And why is the Mainstream Media 1.0 suddenly turning against the Obama administration?

Here is a new conspiracy theory for you.

In 1998, the Internet was deregulated from the Department of Defense to a trade group called the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This largely secretive organization consists of the world’s major corporations. The ICANN distributes IP addresses (Numbers) to ISPs, Web hosts, and others. Some IP addresses have Assigned Names, which are the domain names such as LibertyColumns.com, danq.co, librabase.com, twitter.com, and teapartynation.com. Domain name owners must use private arbitration for their disputes (such as trademark infringement claims), though this is nonbinding and can be appealed through your country’s court system.

The UN has long wanted their hands on the Internet. Promoting that the Internet be “for all countries” rather than “America’s evil interests” will ensure that Muslims, the Chinese government, Scandinavian liberals, and others can provide for censorship and destruction of “offensive” material.

Years ago, an issue called “net neutrality” was invented. This revolved around “discrimination” of inanimate Internet activities by ISPs, notably the slowing down of equipment-draining peer-to-peer traffic such as BitTorrent, which is usually (but not always) used for copyright infringement. Unless we passed these “net neutrality” laws, Internet service would become “tiered”, where only the major sites would be accessible to most customers while all other Web sites would cost more. The FCC started to implement net neutrality, though the Supreme Court declared them unable to pass these regulations without a new Congressional law. The issue seems to have faded away.

Is the Mainstream Media 1.0 suddenly attacking its hero, President Obama, digging up decades-old scandals and decades-old conspiracy theories, in order to sign away the Internet to the United Nations, getting rid of their mind-liberating, pocket-robbing, copyright-infringing menace once and for all?

Or is this just a paranoid conspiracy theory?

As with the NSA scandals, time will tell.

Gun Confiscation, Sterilized Seeds & More – The Dangers of a Constitutional Convention

For many years, conservatives have been pushing for a Constitutional Convention as a means of implementing the limited government we so desperately need in America now.

Constitutional Conventions are extremely dangerous. We will witness an America under neocon national socialism and unimaginable tyranny, possibly even worse than the hybrid-communism of China.

The original American government, the Articles of Confederation, was extremely limited in nature. Most notably, there was no room for a centralized American currency system. It was for this reason that the wealthy Federalists pushed for the Constitution, which dictated to the states what they could not do (including coining their own money and signing treaties). Many states were reluctant to join our Federalist America, and it was for this reason that these states had to be bribed by adding ten amendments (out of the twelve they requested) to it. As soon as the Constitution was ratified, the national bank was one of the first items on the agenda. Literal interpretation of the document may lead to a much more limited government than the “living Constitution” of today, but the Constitution is loaded with protectionism and is one of the banking industry’s greatest scams.

200+ years later, the wealthy elites have new agendas. New ideologies have developed since the late 1700s, most notably communism and fascism. Technology has improved as well, with stronger armies and stronger weapons. While medieval/royal interests remained during the ratification of the Constitution (represented in America by Hamilton), authorities could not instantly kill Wycliffe, Luther, and Voltaire with the click of a mouse.

If a Constitutional Convention was to take place, here are some of the nightmares we will have under a neocon America:

  1. No guns at all. The United Nations, through their Office for Disarmament Affairs, has long pushed for the elimination of all weapons from citizens, most recently through their “arms treaty” which Obama has signed and frequently attempts to ratify.
  2. Severely weakened American military, or no American military at all. This same UN arms treaty is pushing to equalize all nations’ military resources. Iran will have more military strength, and America will have less. There will also be room for foreign troops and foreign military drones. In the famous Kelo v. City of New London case, the Supreme Court declared eminent domain could be used to transfer property to private corporations – with this type of America, you can count on soldiers being indefinitely quartered in your home without a Third Amendment to stop it.
  3. Extremely crippled and financially inaccessible justice system. In America now, we have situations where industry is completely legally immune from anything they do, most notably natural gas fracking. Government agencies like the EPA, USDA, and FDA allow for preservatives, pesticides, and GMO foods, and restricting or penalizing speaking out against them – this is near-pure legal immunity for Big Pharma and Big Agribusiness as well. Malpractice reform, patent reform – you name it. Leaked drafts from the secret Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) treaty negotiations, carried out by Bush II, Obama, and special interests, is being criticized for its effect on copyright laws. However, it does much more – there will be an international tribunal for all corporations, and if any government attempts to subvert this tribunal, “any” including the United States, it will be hit with trade sanctions.
  4. Centralized education system. The words “education”, “school”, “student”, “learn”, and “teach” are not found anywhere in the US Constitution. After a Constitutional Convention, they will be.
  5. No “hate speech”. This includes anti-federal-government speech, which has already been defined as terrorism. Criticism of Islam, the Koran, or Muhammad will be criminalized.
  6. Sterilized seeds and national seed registries. Only government-approved and sterilized seeds will be allowed in America. This is true of post-Saddam Iraq due to the neocon Paul Bremer, and no doubt will be in a post-Constitutional-Convention neocon national socialist America.

Many are noting that their state is on the side of limited government. During a Constitutional Convention, they will not be. Just look at Occupy Wall Street Republicans like John Boehner, who promised a Tea Party version of the 1994 Republican Revolution, and immediately began firing fiscal conservatives from committees. During the recent government shutdown, Obama, Boehner, and only the Republicans Boehner approved held a secret meeting which led to funding Obamacare. Repeal of Obamacare will now be a recurring unfulfilled campaign promise.

It is no surprise that proven pseudocons like Mark Levin are writing books pushing for a Constitutional Convention.

A Constitutional Convention will destroy American liberty, create a Western China, give written powers to international agencies, and allow for regulation of everything imaginable. Do not fall into the neocon trap because other conservatives and libertarians think they can make America more free. For all you know, they are planning the opposite.

Obama’s Blog-Burning Reich Begins

Sens. Feinstein and Schumer are planning to lead a federal blog-burning via a "media shield bill" which has just passed committee. Sen. Schumer is actually stating that the goal is to “[balance] the need for national security with that of a free press”.

Currently shield laws exist at the state level as a means of protecting journalists legally per journalism’s duty to report information to the general public. However, this federal non-”shield law” subjects every non-Mainstream Media 1.0 outlet to the mercy of Attorney General Eric Holder. Anything which Eric Hitler does not like can be shut down on demand.

The original language of the bill only applied to individuals who work for a company. Complaints by Matt Drudge led to an exemption in the event that primary sources are not released “without authorization”. In other words, all media in America will be forced to be biased in some way, and there will be no way to prove who is right.

When we were in school writing our papers, we learned that we should always rely on primary sources rather than secondary ones. No more. Obama’s nationwide “Common Core” will eliminate “the book report” and “the current events essay” as we know it, fulfilling the Marxist dream of direct management of all schools by a centralized Department of Education. This falls in line perfectly with the “memo” model of journalism most often associated with Fox News – direct management of information itself by the federal government.

Why do powerful people support control of information and suppression of information they do not like? The truth is, they do not. Censorship is not rooted in control, it is rooted in fear. Whether it be the MAFIAA’s fear of an over-saturated deflationary free market in entertainment, the Surveillance State’s fear of being caught in heinous criminal activity against their own citizens a la Saddam Hussein, or the neocon/liberal fear of small-government politicians and a pro-liberty press, censorship is based entirely on fear. Even the Religious Right’s argument for censoring sex, violence, and the seven dirty words is based on the fear that their children will grow into immorality.

And the establishment should fear. The book-burning dictators of the 20th century did not outlast liberty, and neither will the blog-burning dictators of the 21st. All tyrannical governments ultimately destroy themselves, and liberty is again restored. Information may be suppressed, but information cannot be shut down, and will not be shut down. Tyranny is temporary. The only way is liberty.

A Third Tea Party: Possible, Realistic, and Easier Than You Think

During the pre-Palin days of the Tea Party Movement, the idea of a conservative third party was often discussed. Since the Tampa Purge of 2012, many have revisited this idea, most recently Judson Phillips of Tea Party Nation.

A third party dedicated only to freedom and limited government has been attempted several times, and we do have the Libertarian Party and the Constitution Party, though like the Green Party, they have been restricted to local politics, and often lack ballot access.

This period of American history is marked by a large, oppressive, and violent federal government. We have many factions within the Republican Party that are fighting each other to gain more control over the others.

The Republican Primary of 2012, possibly the most bizarre primary election in the history of the United States, featured deliberately ignored districts, intimidation and blackmail of delegates, physical assault against delegates, “secret caucuses”, fraudulently detoured transportation, obvious plants in presidential campaigns, strangely dismissed court cases, and much more horrible things we will probably never know. In addition, our elected delegates in future primaries and caucuses can now be replaced, at any time, by the Republican National Committee.

As a result, many are again questioning whether we are better off in a third party than fighting at all. Neocons want nothing to do with anyone who won’t obey them to the grave, and this includes all free-market libertarians, religious conservatives, and all similar groups that find common ground in the Tea Party Movement.

Starting a Third Tea Party is a very bad idea, and will cause freedom to dissipate and die into a medieval America built on endless wars, dumbed-down schools, illegal immigration, and socialist national health care.

However, it does not have to be a bad idea. Many state and county divisions of the Republican Party are increasingly frustrated in their fight against the neocons. By having their own “secret meetings”, it would be very easy for entire state parties to “secede” from the national Republican Party and form a Third Tea Party.

With entire states and counties gone, the Republican Party loses its presence. Neocons then have to spend the money not on weapons and wars, but on rebuilding the Republican Party – money, manpower, lobbying, propaganda, and more. For their presence has just vanished from a state with only two parties on the ballot: the Democratic Party and the Third Tea Party. If the Republican Party is not successfully re-created in that state, there will be no possible Republican vote from that state in any national election.

Unlike, say, a state Libertarian Party struggling to stay on the ballot, the Third Tea Party will already be on the ballot, and have most or all of the funding, politicians, lobbyists, votes, and resources the state Republican Party used to have.

A Third Tea Party would have no room for the neocons who attempted to destroy it. The only financially viable option for the neocons would be to bail and join the party of Big Government, that is, the Democratic Party. From then on, there would be a new two party system – the Tea Party, which would support freedom, and the Democratic Party, which does not.

It is dangerous for the Tea Party to attempt to start a new party. It would be divisive, devastating, and throw America to the wolves. It is possible, however, for liberty-minded states and their Republican Parties to “secede” from the national party. Either way, all those involved in politics must remember that America is not built on the Republican or Democratic Parties, but on the Constitution.

Barack Hussein Obama: The New Leader of Al Qaeda

(This column was written and published on September 10, 2013, and is dedicated to the victims and families of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, occurring 12 years ago from tomorrow)

9/11 WTC South Tower

On September 11, 2001, Americans watched thousands of fellow Americans murdered on domestic soil in a series of bloody terrorist attacks. The offenders, Al Qaeda, have been targeted by the US government since then, and their leader, Osama Bin Laden, was allegedly killed and disposed of in a classified funeral.

Assuming Bin Laden actually has been killed, Obama has taken Osama’s place as Al Qaeda’s most powerful representative. He continues to push for war in Syria, fighting alongside mass-murdering terrorist groups Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, who Osama Obama believes are America’s greatest allies.

John McCain, whose positions on war, executive power, and surveillance are 100% in agreement with a future Biblical Antichrist, is now promoting his blasphemous beliefs that Muslim terrorist threats are equivalent to a Christian thanking God.

This is treason. How can our own President fund, promote, and support terrorist attacks by mass murderers who killed Americans on domestic soil?

Barack Hussein Obama, John McCain, and every other politician who supports war with Syria is guilty of the deaths of all people the Obama/Al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood Three-Way Pact kill. And all of these deaths are equivalent to an additional American being killed on 9/11.

Navy Soldier Against Syrian War

Obama, who has from the beginning sided with sharia theocracies, needs to be impeached immediately. Senators must be recalled (Arizona is among the states that allow for this, with Flake and McCain both supporting war in Syria). Representatives must be challenged in primaries. Tea Party protests, Occupy Wall Street protests, and every protest in between must be omnipresent and unavoidable. Everything possible must be done to remove Al Qaeda Republicans and Muslim Brotherhood Democrats from Congress. We cannot allow for this.

Imagine what will happen in 6 years when our 12-year-old children born in 2001 earn their right to vote. What will be Al Qaeda’s role in politics? Will American voters completely forget about terrorist attacks? Will minor anti-war protests be the only challenge to Al Qaeda Republicans and Muslim Brotherhood Democrats?

The treasonous foreign policy of Obama and McCain must be stopped. If it is not stopped, domestic terrorist attacks will be commonplace, and as we go further from 9/11, more Americans will be of voting age, and terrorist attacks will become mere nightly news blurbs.
