Unconstitutional National Security Letters from Obama Attempt To Silence Governors and Destroy 10th Amendment

A chilling report from the Foreign Military Intelligence Directorate (GRU) prepared for Prime Minister Putin warns today that United States President Barack Obama has had served on 14 US Governors National Security Letters (NSLs) warning that if their actions in attempting to form what are called State Defense Forces are not halted they will face “immediate” arrest for the crime of treason.

The use of NSLs in the United States was authorized by the Patriot Act law enacted after the September 11, 2001 attacks and forbids anyone receiving them from even acknowledging their existence, and was reauthorized by Obama’s “rubberstamp” Congress this past February over the objections of both civil and human rights groups who warned they mimic similar type “government security notices” enacted under both the former German Nazi and Soviet Communist regimes.

Recently NSL’s have come under scrutiny when a federal judge agreed that they are an infringement on the first amendment. A telecom company that has received an NSL sued and was counter-sued by the FBI because the FBI claimed that even questioning the authority of the FBI was a breach of the NSL.

To the issue angering Obama against these State Governors, this report continues, is their attempt to reestablish what are called State Defense Forces which are described as follows:

State Defense Forces (SDF) (also known as State Guards, State Military Reserves, or State Militias) in the United States are military units that operate under the sole authority of a state government; they are not regulated by the National Guard Bureau nor are they part of the Army National Guard of the United States.

State Defense Forces are authorized by state and federal law and are under the command of the governor of each state. State Defense Forces are distinct from their state’s National Guard in that they cannot become federal entities.

The federal government recognizes State Defense Forces under 32 U.S.C. § 109 which provides that State Defense Forces as a whole may not be called, ordered, or drafted into the Armed Forces of the United States, thus preserving their separation from the National Guard.”

Obama’s fear of these State Defense Forces, this report says, rests with his not having power over them, and with the bulk of the US Military Forces he does control being stretched to near breaking with the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan would leave these State military forces under the control of these Governors in “defacto control” of the United States.

The two US Governors spearheading this rebellion against Obama, this report states, are the Republican opposition party Governors of Minnesota, Tim Pawlenty and Texas, Rick Perry; both of whom have a deep fear their President is destroying their Nation.

Governor Pawlenty’s fear of Obama is that since he took office he has appeased America’s enemies while at the same time shunning some of America’s most stalwart allies, especially Israel.  Governor Pawlenty recently castigated Obama for abandoning the US missile defense plan for Europe by saying, “The lessons of history are clear: Appeasement and weakness did not stop the Nazis, did not stop the Soviets, and did not stop the terrorists before 9/11. We must stand strong with allies like Israel and eastern Europe in the face of growing challenges to our national security.”

Governor Perry has blasted Obama and warned his fellow Texans that the President is “hell bent on socialism” and is punishing his State by dumping tens-of-thousands of illegal Mexican immigrants into their cities and small towns. Governor Perry further warned Texans that that if“Barack Obama’s Washington doesn’t stop being so oppressive, Texans might feel compelled to renounce their American citizenry and secede from the union.”

Note: Following the end of the Civil War the rights of the individual US States to succeed from the Union was heard by their Supreme Court in a case called Texas v. White (1869) and who ruled that the Constitution did not permit States to secede from the United States, and that the ordinances of secession, and all the acts of the legislatures within seceding States intended to give effect to such ordinances, were“absolutely null”.“through revolution, or through consent of the States.”However, the decision did allow some possibility of divisibility

Obama, in fearing a revolution against him by the States, this report continues, has moved swiftly against them, including nationalizing nearly all National Guard Forces in Governor Pawlenty’s Minnesota in what is being described as their State’s largest call up of troops since World War II.  Other reports coming from the United States are stating that Obama has also nationalized the National Guard forces in Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, and perhaps Texas too.

Though Obama may have taken from these dissident States their National Guard forces, the Governors of the States of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia still have under their sole command their State Defense Forces to go against US Federal forces.

Important to note in this report is its stating that there are no US laws prohibiting National Guard troops from also joining their State’s Defense Forces, but would create a dilemma for those soldiers should they be called to service by them both at the same time.  This dilemma occurred for many American soldiers during their Civil War with the great majority of them choosing to serve their States instead of the Federal Government.

rand paul sequesterTo Governor Pawlenty’s fears of Obama appeasing America’s enemies, while at the same time harming its longstanding allies, their remains no doubt as during this past week alone he has put Israel’s security in grave danger by releasing previously classified US documents relating to their nuclear programme, while at the same time removing sanctions on Russian arms makers supplying Iran. And in a move that even Russian military analysts are calling “insane”, Obama this week said he has decided to pre-announce to the World once-secret American ballistic missile tests and satellite launches.

To Governor Perry’s fears of Obama socializing the United States their remains no doubt either, and as we can read as reported yesterday by the USA Today News Service:

“Paychecks from private business shrank to their smallest share of personal income in U.S. history during the first quarter of this year, a USA TODAY analysis of government data finds.

At the same time, government-provided benefits — from Social Security, unemployment insurance, food stamps and other programs — rose to a record high during the first three months of 2010.

Those records reflect a long-term trend accelerated by the recession and the federal stimulus program to counteract the downturn. The result is a major shift in the source of personal income from private wages to government programs.”

And in an even worse move against his own people who are still struggling to survive the growing Global economic collapse, new reports from the United States are stating that a “secret” program found hidden in Obama’s socialist healthcare law called the Community Living Assistance Services and Support Act (CLASS Act) is about to take from them another $150-$250 a month from their paychecks forcing tens of millions more of them into abject poverty and debt slavery.

To the final outcome of these events it is not in our knowing, other than to remind these Americans of Dr. Igor Panarin’s 2008 prediction of the fate lying in store for them, and as we can read as reported by London’s Telegraph News Service in their article titled “US will collapse and break up, Russian analyst predicts”, and which says:

Igor Panarin, a professor at the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian foreign affairs ministry, said the economic turmoil in the US had confirmed his long-held belief that the country was heading for extinction in its present form.

In an interview with the Russian newspaper Izvestia, he outlined how the US would divide along ethnic and cultural lines.

They are: the Pacific coast with its growing Chinese population; the increasingly Hispanic South; independence-minded Texas; the Atlantic Coast; a central state with a large Native American population; and the northern states where – he maintains – Canadian influence is strong.

Alaska could be claimed by Russia, he said, claiming that the region was “only granted on lease, after all”.

He said the country’s break-up would be accelerated by rising unemployment and Americans losing their savings.

“The dollar isn’t secured by anything. The country’s foreign debt has grown like an avalanche; this is a pyramid, which has to collapse,” said Prof Panarin.

And to those Americans believing they will be able to defend themselves against the fast approaching onslaught meant to destroy them they should think again, for even as these words are being written, Obama, through the United Nations, is preparing to disarm them all under the so called UN Treaty On Arms Control that he ordered his government to sign.

The late great American dissident comedian George Carlin once said, “It’s called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it”….one can only hope these poor souls will awaken from their long slumber before all is lost.

Kansas Law Would Make TSA Pat Downs Illegal – And Restrict Search Procedures for Children

tsa

It looks as if Kansas legislators have had just about enough of the “security theater” of airport screening by the Transportation Security Administration.

Rep. Brett Hildabrand helped to introduce HB 2175, which would make it illegal for TSA screeners to touch the private parts of passengers, as well as prohibit them from removing those passengers under eighteen years old from under control of their parents or legal guardians.

Twenty other House Republicans are joining him in pushing the bill and this would impact between 100 and 110 TSA officers at seven Kansas airports.

The Shawnee Republican said,

“Air travelers are subjected to aggressive, humiliating pat-downs, many of which would land the average stranger off the street in jail. But because the federal government has given someone a blue uniform and a badge, we are told that person has authority over our bodies and we must endure.”

Hildabrand pointed to the story of a three year old in a wheelchair that was scrutinized by the TSA and wrote:

“This is exactly why we need to pass HB 2175, regulating the TSA conduct in Kansas! This is yet another despicable assault by the TSA”

The TSA claims that the “Supremacy Clause,” found in Article VI of the US Constitution gives the Federal government jurisdiction in this matter and it prevents states from regulating the federal government. That is only in the case where such jurisdiction is Constitutional. The particular clause in question reads:

“This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.”

The TSA blog arguing for the Supremacy Clause read, “We wish we lived in a world where you could just walk on a plane with no security screening, but that just isn’t the case unfortunately. Aviation security agencies worldwide have been using pat-downs long before TSA was created to prevent dangerous items from getting onto airplanes. The pat-down is a highly effective tool to resolve certain alarms and keep these dangerous items off of planes that could cause catastrophic damage.”

Kansas Law Would Make TSA Pat Downs Illegal This is utter nonsense. The Federal government, prior to 9-11 did not engage in this practice. It is one thing for private airport security to engage in it. It is quite another for the Federal government to do it. It is a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment.

Furthermore, TSa is out to keep dangerous items off of planes, or so they say, but it has been demonstrated that many items they seek to keep off planes travel across country. It is also highly documented of their harassment and utter ridiculousness in regards to the porn scanners, testing of your drink for explosives before you board your flight and the silly notion of checking grandmothers and people in wheelchairs, subjecting them to humiliating unlawful and unconstitutional searches and in some cases seizures.

The State of Kansas can remove TSA officers from any and all airports if they so desire. The Federal government does not have the right to violate the Fourth Amendment rights of anyone, including those flying on airplanes.

Second, there is the issue of nullification. That’s right, the Tenth Amendment. While many states are already pushing nullification of the National Defense Authorization Act and Obamacare, Kansas should push the envelope. While I applaud Rep. Hildabrand’s efforts, it doesn’t go far enough. Where in the Constitution does the US Federal government possess the authority to federalize airport security and in the process demand the violation of the Fourth Amendment rights of passengers before they may board an airplane? It isn’t in there.

However, remember it wasn’t long ago that Texas tried a similar move and though there were the votes, the Feds made a threat of shutting down flights in and out of Texas and lawmakers backed off. As long as they will not stand up against tyrants, the tyrants will continue to be bullies. It’s time to actually stand for freedom and throw off the chains of an oppressive Federal government.
