Jeff Greenwald takes Senator Lindsey Graham to task for defending the destruction of the Fourth Amendment.

Unfortunately, Greenwald insists on using the false left-right paradigm to make his argument. He says the senator from South Carolina is “one of the most right-wing members of the United States Congress.”

Obama is often described as a left-winger and even a socialist. Despite this, his support for the surveillance and war state apparatus mirrors that of Graham, minus a few minor ideological flourishes. Right, left, socialist, conservative – these designations are about as relevant as the color tie worn by senators on a particular day.

Lindsey Graham is not a right-winger. He is an establishment neocon. Graham is one of the primary promoters of the contrived war on terror. It’s his job to push the idea that cartoonish Muslims in far away caves pose an ominous threat to the United States. He says due to this never-ending supposed threat we must surrender our constitutional rights and consent to the military industrial complex stealing trillions of our hard-earned dollars in order to wage illegal and criminal wars in places of interest to banksters and transnational corporations. Instead of protesting the loss of liberty, we are expected to celebrate its demise, as Graham does, and thank the state for its intrusion into the minutest personal details of our lives.

Graham does not oppose the “National Security Administration,” as he calls it (it’s an agency), listening in on his phone calls because he enthusiastically supports the implementation of a high-tech police and surveillance state supposedly in reaction to phantom terrorists who never seem to attack. He is a military dictatorship fetishist who adores war and the simplistic idea of foreign enemies that must be fought against with eternal vigilance.

Lindsey Graham is one of the most dangerous enemies of liberty. This is not especially surprising or unusual because many of the most dangerous enemies of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are in Congress.

Earlier this week, senators Dianne Feinstein and Saxby Chambliss used the phony war on invented terror to say basically the same thing Graham did following the latest revelations about the NSA.

Congress supports the NSA going through what amounts to your underwear drawer. If they opposed it, Congress would move to strip the NSA of its authority to surveil millions of Americans. A few mavericks like Rand Paul still exist in Congress, but they are vastly outnumbered by lickspittle servants of the shadow government and the military authoritarian agenda of the global elite.

Lindsey Graham, Dianne Feinstein, Saxby Chambliss and the rest have sold their souls to the Devil for power, money and fame. It does not bother them in the least that the NSA listens to their phone calls or reads their emails. They are bought and sold like chattel. It is their job to make sure you are unable to practice your God-given natural right to be free of government coercion and violence. It is their duty to make sure you become a slave and never realize your potential to be a free human being.

THE BUREAUCRATIZATION OF EVERYTHING

Regulation, like the work of a boa constrictor, wraps itself around the American economy and restricts freedom of action, imposing costly burdens which threaten the survival of the American market. Federal bureaucracy coerces and cajoles every market player, diminishing freedom to invent, produce, and market, reducing consumer choice, and creating governmentally planned economies. In the Obama Administration, the federal agencies are headed by individuals predisposed to exercise control over markets and regulate them with a vengeance. Those individuals harbor grave suspicions about the private sector and think it prone to failure and abuse unless kept firmly under federal control. The economies produced as a result of regulatory enforcement are inefficient, failing to meet the best and highest uses. Those economies carry with them ever higher levels of unemployment and loss of private revenue. The bureaucratization of everything private is enslaving and progressively destroying all productive enterprise, particularly small and mid-sized businesses and new market entrants. The bureaucratization of everything is rapidly transforming previously vibrant markets into dull and dysfunctional ones that can neither innovate nor employ those with talent.

The squeeze is on with the federal government aiming to increase taxes on the most productive elements of society while simultaneously imposing economic burdens and limitations on free choice through thousands of federal rules and a new emphasis on enforcement against the non-compliant, including asset forfeitures, seizure actions, and civil and criminal prosecutions. While taxes take the wealth that would otherwise be saved, invested, or spent; regulations limit freedom of choice, increasing the cost of production, goods, and services, diminishing the profitability of every enterprise, and limiting consumer choice in the market. Regulations also impose significant barriers to market entry and force many firms out of existence, depleting wealth, eliminating opportunity, and adding to unemployment.

Since the start of the Obama Administration, there has been an 18% increase in the number of federal regulatory agencies; there has been a 13% increase in employment at the agencies. According to a Policy Backgrounder by Heritage Foundation Senior Fellow James L. Gattuso entitled “Red Tape Rising,” since 2009 the federal agencies have adopted 106 new “major” or “significant” regulations (i.e., those with an estimated economic impact of $100 million or more each) at an implementation cost of $11 billion and a combined added economic impact of $46 billion. The estimated annual cost to industry of regulations imposed by federal agencies is in excess of $1.8 trillion per year (an amount higher than the annual pre-tax corporate profits of American industry and a significant chunk of the nation’s $15 trillion annual GDP). Some 4,000 new regulations are wending their way through the federal agencies. Of those, some 224 are “major” or “significant” regulations, each imposing an economic impact in excess of $100 million.

It is remarkable to note that few, if any, of the new regulations will produce a measureable improvement in the health or welfare of Americans or in the environment. Ironically, the costliest regulations (those that do most to destroy jobs and businesses) are often ones that by reasonable standards of measure do little, if anything, to achieve the alleged government objective. There is no statutory requirement that the agencies prove the efficacy of their regulations as a condition precedent to their adoption and implementation. There is no statutory requirement that agencies eliminate regulations that increase unemployment or that contribute to the very harm they were allegedly designed to eliminate. There is no limit to the number or cost of regulations.

Since the Kennedy Administration, when Congress doled out $533 million to support the federal agencies, there has been a consistent growth in the number, size, and scope of regulatory power. Congress now expends in excess of $60 billion annually to keep the agencies running. There are over 250 of them regulating everything from tongue depressors to credit cards to power plants, refrigerators, and automobiles. There is no economic liberty right to be free of federal regulation regardless of how costly it is unless the regulation is so arbitrary and capricious as to be entirely irrational.

The regulatory agencies are headed by unelected officials who within their respective agency’s jurisdiction possess vastly more power, individually, than any single elected official. Those unelected agency heads promulgate regulations without a meaningful check on their discretion by the Courts, the Congress, or the American people. Fully nine-tenths of all federal laws now implemented are not the product of those we elect but are the products of the unelected heads of the federal agencies. That is rule by oligarchy. Consequently, the United States is in fact no longer a limited federal republic. It has become an unlimited bureaucratic oligarchy, a transformation I explain in detail in The Rise of Tyranny.

Federal regulations embrace virtually every aspect of the economy. Gattuso’s “Red Tape Rising” report for Heritage documents several recent costly regulations. For example, new Department of Labor “Wage Methodology for the Temporary Non-agricultural Employment H-2B Program” increases the minimum wage rate for foreign workers employed under an H-2B visa and will impose an estimated $847.4 million annually on the economy. New Environmental Protection Agency standards require adherence to more stringent power plant emission standards and will impose an estimated $846.3 million annually. Environmental Protection Agency regulations set new fuel efficiency and emissions standards for combination tractors, heavy-duty pickups and vans, and vocational vehicles and will impose an estimated $606.9 million annually.

Environmental Protection Agency regulations require adherence to more stringent standards on the performance and emission limits of solid waste incinerators and will cost $721.7 million to implement and $286.2 million annually. Other Environmental Protection Agency regulations require adherence to emission standards on commercial, institutional, and industrial broilers and will cost $5.2 billion to implement and $1.8 billion annually. Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy regulations establish more stringent standards for home heating and cooling appliances and will cost an estimated $657.5 million annually. HHS Obamacare regulations requiring the establishment of new electronic transaction infrastructures will cost an estimated $547.5 million annually. The list goes on and on, adding hundreds of millions of dollars of burden each year to a beleaguered market with no limits imposed by Congress.

Environmental regulations are the costliest and most prolific followed by those coming from the Department of Health and Human Services and the Food and Drug Administration. Remarkably no serious effort has been made to repeal federal regulations by force of law or to prevent adoption of any that cause unemployment or force the closure of businesses. As with so many things in the world of politics, politicians deceive. The elected representatives mouth platitudes and issue promises about reducing overall spending, while the federal agencies left unregulated adopt regulation after regulation without regard to the resulting job and business losses.

At a time when the economy can least afford restrictions on freedom of choice and costly burdens, the regulatory agencies proceed as if affordability is entirely irrelevant. They proceed without regard to the foreseeable impact costly regulations have on job and business losses. Every work day somewhere in the United States a business or a person’s job ends due to the inability of a company to cope with regulatory burdens. Every work day some hapless business man or woman is forced to kow tow to the often unreasonable demands of a federal regulator, even if that means destroying huge amounts of inventory, relabeling all products, recalling perfectly safe products from the market, or reconstructing parts of a plant that have operated without incident for decades. As an attorney who has practiced administrative law for two and a half decades, I know well the enormously deleterious consequences that flow from unlimited regulatory power. That growth is destined to accelerate rapidly over the next four years. Many hundreds of businesses and many thousands of jobs will be lost. Given the persistent, decades long and pervasive lack of political stomach, selfless dedication to country, and brain power required to champion a reversal of the movement toward the bureaucratization of everything, we are worse off now than we were four years ago, and we will be worse off still four years hence.

American Thinker was the first to report about how Fauquier County, Virginia attempted to fine farmer Martha Boneta for hosting a birthday party for eight 10-year-old girls without a special events permit.  She was also fined for selling her farm produce without a special administrative permit, even though she had a business license that allowed those sales.

As also reported here, Martha the farmer lost her appeal before the county’s Board of Zoning Appeals.  What has not been reported is that Fauquier County, without explanation, refused to renew her business license just days before her appeal hearing.  She has been forced to shut down her small farm store where she sells organic vegetables, fiber, and feather products from her farm animals (she has over 160, most of which are rescued), as well as beeswax candles, goats milk soaps, and other products from her farming activities.

Because she could not sell her organic vegetables in this critical part of the harvest season, Martha donated them to a local food bank before they rotted.  Fauquier County zoning administrator and bureaucratic bully Kimberley Johnson is probably busy concocting some charge against Martha for giving away her veggies without a permit.  No tomato is beyond the reach of tyrants.

One local newspaper editorial claimed that Martha could have saved herself a lot of trouble and money had she just gotten the $150 administrative permit to sell her farm products.  The message from a few purveyors of free advice is that had Martha just lacked principles and done what her master, an unelected government bureaucrat, had dictated to her, she’d be in a better place.  But beware of free advice from statists.

Martha had a business license to operate a tiny farm store that sits scenically amid her farm animals and organic vegetables.  In 2011, however, Fauquier County added a new requirement for farmers, which it called a “special administrative permit.”  The county’s board of supervisors touted this new permit as an improvement on and a clarification of what farmers could sell on their private property.  Puh-lease.

One local environmental group with an unusual amount of influence over Fauquier County officials was assuredly behind the 2011 administrative permit.  This group touted the county’s recent controversial winery ordinance as a balance of interests.  The ordinance forces wineries to close at 6 p.m., defines and limits “personal private gatherings” allowable at wineries, and is a gross affront to property rights and civil liberties.  The interests being balanced seem to be statism and revenue.

The administrative permit that Martha the farmer rejected in the name of fighting for liberty is highly restrictive of the rights of farmers.  The permit is vague and open to selective enforcement.  For example, it limits farms sales to only agricultural products, at least 50 percent of which must be grown at the farm, and anything not grown at the farm must be labeled as such.

The permit therefore makes it illegal for farmers to sell ice-cold water and other beverages.  Under the permit, farmers may not sell books with pictures of the county, home-spun art, farming artifacts, or even any literature authored by the farmers themselves on farming, animal husbandry, and the like.

Even when conditions demand it, farm stores are limited in supplementing their produce by bringing in vegetables from neighboring farms, making mortgage and property tax payments more difficult than they already are.  And the permit is not clear: is it 50 percent of each type of vegetable, or 50 percent cumulatively of all the vegetables that you sell?  Only zoning czar Kimberley Johnson knows for sure.

The administrative permit also restricts what may take place at corn mazes, pumpkin patches, and other farm events for children.  Fauquier County obviously doesn’t want children to get the full farm experience — oh, but we already knew this, since the county penalized Martha for that birthday party.

Perhaps dumbest on the new list of don’ts is that farmers must keep dust from their driveways.  You read that right:  Fauquier County wants dust-free farms.  The permit provides no guidance about how much dust is illegal.  Farmers typically don’t pave their driveways because — well, because they live on farms.

Kimberley Johnson wrote to one person that farmers should water their driveways.  This means that during hot, dry spells, farmers would need to divert scarce water from crops and livestock, or face fines.

Martha could have opted into the new, more restrictive permit requirement.  She instead opted to use the phrase from Herman Melville’s Bartleby, the Scrivener: “I would prefer not to.”  In doing so, she has made herself a hero in the fight against government that breaks the law, and the anti-liberty faux environmental groups that use government for their own corrupt agendas.

What has not been reported is that in March, zoning tyrant Johnson sent her assistant Andrew Hushour, without probable cause or a judge-signed warrant, to investigate Martha’s farm for a “boarding house” violation.  Martha, you see, had college students staying at her home near the farm.  The students were volunteering during their spring break to learn about organic farming.

Hushour, coincidentally, had four armed county law enforcement officials with him.

Days before the pitchfork protest for Martha, one county official told me that Martha is under a tax audit.  I told this official that whether this is true or not, it would be illegal for anyone to disclose it to him.

Thousands of times per day, government violates the law, bullies its citizens, and compounds its grab of our property rights and individual liberties.  We don’t hear about most of these incidents because most people fear government retribution and decide to cave in.

Martha’s cause, it seems, will help expose more than just government abuse of zoning laws in Fauquier County.

 

A shocking Federal Security Service (FSB) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that last week an “intense” battle erupted in the US State of Michigan between military forces loyal to the Obama regime and American rebels that killed at least 380 men, women and children who had gathered to oppose their nations slide towards a totalitarian dictatorship.

According to this report, nearly 500 people opposed to the Obama regime had assembled for a “clandestine” meeting in the Michigan country of Alpena in an effort to form a 50-State alliance of local law enforcement and political officers seeking to “turn the tide” of their nations path towards dictatorship even, should it be necessary, by armed force.

The FSB states in this report that hostilities erupted when the American rebel forces gathered at this meeting indentified “several” undercover FBI informants who were seeking to “escalate tensions” and arrested them whereupon, “within minutes,” a contingent of “heavily armed” Obama regime federal police forces attempted to, in turn, arrest these rebel leaders.

After a “prolonged skirmish” between these rebel forces and Obama regime federal police, this report continues, the US Military launched a series of airstrikes, the largest being a 2,000 lb laser guided bomb that hit in the middle of those gathered at this meeting killing over three quarters of them instantly.

To how powerful this blast was we can read as reported by a local Michigan reporter named Bob Powell who wrote: “At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, 6/6/2012, a mysterious explosion shook homes over hundreds of square miles in Northeastern Michigan. The ground shaking explosion was heard from Presque Isle to Lincoln, and out west as far as Hillman.”

Important to note is that this reporter was swiftly detained and arrested by Obama forces when he attempted to gather more information.

Over the next nearly 48-hours since the initial bomb drop upon the rebels, this report continues, Obama regime military forces “numbering in the high-hundreds” descended upon Michigan [photo 2nd left] utilizing nearly 85 combat transport helicopters and A-10 Thunderbolt air-to-ground missile equipped fighter aircraft.

Confirming the chaos of this battle we can, also, read as confirmed by the Natural Society News Service which, in part, says:

“Eyewitnesses on the ground near the media-blacked-out elevated radiation zone near the border of Indiana and Michigan, where radiation levels hundreds of times higher than normal were quickly removed from public viewing by the EPA, are now sending in a large number of photos and videos documenting massive explosions accompanied by unmarked helicopters, A-10 Thunderbolts, and military personnel.

Those on the ground report that the explosions are ‘loud and deep’, sounding like fireworks with a kick. The explosions are oftentimes followed up with a squadron of helicopters or other aircraft, oftentimes black and unmarked. One Michigan resident reports the following, and is then backed by dozens of organic comments which confirm the findings:

“EXPLOSIONS EVERYWHERE! Also, Large helicopter heading away from Local Air Force base flying toward scene of explosions! These explosions are seriously consistent, loud booms for the last hour or more.”

Russian nuclear experts contributing to this FSB report state that the elevated radiation levels associated with this attack by the Obama regime upon these rebel forces state that they were caused by the bombs used because they contain depleted uranium, and that there is the “strong likelihood” various other rebel areas of the States of Michigan and Indian may have been targeted too.

This FSB report further states that the “massive retaliation” against these rebels by the Obama regime was due to their having military grade weapons in which to defend themselves and their families.

In less than 48-hours, however, after this attack an “angry and livid” Obama regime put a clampdown on its programme that has supplied US local police forces with military weapons, and as we can, in part, read as reported by the Fox News Service:

“The Defense Department has stopped issuing weapons to thousands of law enforcement agencies until it is satisfied that state officials can account for all the surplus guns, aircraft, Humvees and armored personnel carriers it has given police under a $2.6 billion program, The Associated Press has learned.

The department’s Defense Logistics Agency ordered state-appointed coordinators in 49 states to certify the whereabouts of that equipment that has already been distributed through the long-running arrangement overseen by the agency’s Law Enforcement Support Office.”

This FSB report notes that the death toll they projected in this report is, indeed, an estimate, but further state that based on the number of body-bags requested by Obama regime forces in the aftermath of this battle it could even go higher.

Unknown to the vast majority of Americans, and as we had detailed in our previous report “Russia Shocked After Thousands Of Americans Beg Obama Not To Kill Them”, the Obama regime is operating completely within the law of the United States that now gives their President unprecedented powers to kill and imprison any citizen he so chooses without either evidence or trial, and even newer laws that allows the US government for the first time in its history to deliberately lie and deceive all of them for any reason whatsoever.

Why this cover story? For anyone who has been vaporized from radaition, killed or injured by debris, or eye-witnessed to the battle who have now disappeared, it will be said they were part of this rebel militia. Those with severe developing radiation symptoms will be “arrested” as dmestic terrorists under this story

A coalition of advocacy groups has begun a week of intensive protests against the latest attack on the free and open internet, The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA). The draconian legislation would force companies to ignore existing privacy laws and share information with the federal governmen
