I Thessalonians 5:20, 21

Do not despise expounding of scripture, but scrutinize all things. Hold fast that which is right.

Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium

- I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery.

US to Fingerprint Foreign Vistors But Let Illegal Immigrants Enter Without Visas

DHS to begin full fingerprint scans for visitors

The Homeland Security Department intends to begin scanning all 10 fingerprints for foreign visitors starting Nov. 29 at Dulles International Airport in Virginia, department officials said Tuesday.

Foreigners visiting the United States on visas must have a digital photograph taken and a scan of their two index fingers under the U.S. Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology program. DHS has built a database of 90 million fingerprints in the four years the program has been in operation.

Expansion to 10-finger scans, which has been in the planning stages for several years, is now beginning, Robert Mocny, U.S. Visit director, told journalists at the Foreign Press Center in Washington yesterday.

The 10-finger U.S. Visit scans are being rolled out at U.S. airports and at all land and sea border crossings, with a goal of being fully operational by the end of 2008, according to press reports of the briefing.


Fingerprint the foreign visitors who actually go through the trouble to get a legal visa but allow illegal immigrants to enter our country across our unprotected borders and once they get here, the Senate tries to give them amnesty and the governor of New York wanted to give the illegals driver's licenses until we the people revolted. Anyone else see anything wrong with this picture?

Department of Homeland Security, headed by the dual Israel/US citizen Chertoff, is not trying to stop terrorism. If they were concerned about stopping terrorism, they would close the borders. Instead, our government is building a Fascist Police State and this is one more solid step in that direction.

Airport screeners missed bomb parts

So goes the headline of a lead Yahoo news story. The story continues:

WASHINGTON - Government investigators smuggled liquid explosives and detonators past airport security, exposing a dangerous hole in the nation's ability to keep these forbidden items off of airplanes, according to a report made public Wednesday.


If this is the case, that is, government investigators are able to smuggle explosives past airport security, why aren't real terrorists getting aboard planes and committing acts of terrorism? If it's that easy to get past Transportation Safty Administration security, then why aren't all those terrorists that are supposed to be plotting to blow-up or hijack planes doing just that - smuggling bombs aboard planes and blowing them up or hijacking them?

The reason terrorist aren't doing just that is obvious: there are no terrorists within the United States who are trying to smuggle bombs aboard US flights.

Not My Problem

There is a saying that keeps wise people out of other people's troubles: "Not my Problem" or NMP. To say there are many problems in the world today, always has been and always will be, is a gross understatement. The question is, does the problem have any thing to do with me? If not, then the problem is NMP. It's somebody else's problem. So when I read the Jewish writer Matthew Rosenberg's piece entitled, "US worries rise over Pakistan crackdown" I think to myself, what goes on in Pakistan is not USrael's problem. The problem is, USrael is sticking their unwanted nose in everyone else's problems all over the world, and oftentimes, by nosing in, create more problems - bigger problems - than if they would just keep their noses out of other people's problems.

"We remain concerned about the continued state of emergency and curtailment of basic freedoms, and urge Pakistani authorities to quickly return to constitutional order and democratic norms," Gordon Johndroe, a spokesman for the National Security Council, said in a statement.


Can you imagine if Pakistani leaders said they were concerned about the continued rise of a fascist Police State in the US, which is indeed happening at this very moment in history, and that Pakistan was concerned about the erosion of constitutional freedoms, election fraud, illegal rendition, torture, the appointment of a torture supporting Attorney General by the torture supporting US Senate? If Pakistani leaders urged US leaders to return "constitutional order and democratic norms," the USrael leaders would go ballistic. USraeli leaders would no doubt tell the Pakistani leaders to keep their noses out of USrael internal affairs.

But when it comes to USrael sticking their long hook-noses into every country in the world because they say it concerns vital "USraeli interests" most people accept that as perfectly legitimate and virtually no one tells USrael to butt out. Why do so few tell USrael to butt out? Because of "aid."

And why is the American taxpayer giving money to Pakistan?

In Washington, where some lawmakers are calling for aid to Pakistan to be curtailed, U.S. officials again criticized Musharraf's crackdown.

USrael has gotten the US taxpayer so deep in un-repayable debt, by just this type of meddling, that is, giving "aid" to foreign countries, which are nothing more than bribes to foreign leaders. When the bribes don't work, that is, the foreign leaders don't do what USrael wants then to do, USraeli lawmakers 'call for aid to Pakistan' to be curtailed. Aid to Pakistan should never have been commenced, never mind curtailed.

USrael should keep their long hooked-noses out of every one's else's business, as their business ii none of the American citizen's business, and their problems are not our problems. Until their problems become our problems, we should take the view of wise men everywhere - "it's NMP." Or as Jefferson said, "beware of foreign entanglements."

We have enough of our own problems to deal with, and, as far as this writer can see, we're not doing too good with any of them.

Original Right of Self-defense

The founding fathers envisioned the several and individual states would be an adequate obstacle to the rise of tyranny by the national, i.e. federal, government. It was their intent – with the right of individual citizens of the various states to bear arms and form militias – that the states would rise up and provide the security needed to fight any federal usurpation of power by national leaders. That, as we well know, has not been the case. The individual states, over the last several decades, have been bribed and or coerced into conceding power granted by the US Constitution to the states, under the tenth amendment, to the federal government. Therefore, we the people are left without state protection against federal despotism.

That leaves us no choice but to fall back to our “original right of self defense” as Alexander Hamilton stated in Federal Paper # 28.

If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government....

There is no doubt that our representatives have betrayed us. They pass laws against our best interest – the Patriot Act, which U.S. District Judge Audrey Collins has already ruled that the ban on providing "expert advice or assistance" is impermissibly vague, and in violation of the First and Fifth Amendments of the US Constitution; the Military Commissions Act of 2006, which eliminated the right of habeas corpus, established way back in 1215, to American citizens; Public Law 109-364, or the "John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007, "allows the president to declare a "public emergency" and station troops anywhere in the United States and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to "suppress public disorder;" Most recently 404 members of the U.S. House of Representatives passed HR 1995 - called the 'Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007,’ which legally allows the government to label any one of us, at their discretion, a terrorist – “a radicalized homegrown terrorist” - and arrested. And let’s not forget the Senate Judiciary Committee approved for appointment for the office of attorney general of the United States, the highest official in the land charged with prosecuting criminals, Michael B. Mukasey, a man who is not sure if the same “enhanced interrogation” technique used by the Pol Pot regime in Cambodia in the 1970s - water boarding - is torture or not.

What we the people now face in these United States is a federal government that can declare anyone of us citizens a “radical homegrown terrorist” or an “enemy combatant” or both on any pretext and imprison us here in the US or flown abroad, without a writ of habeas corpus, without our families knowing where we are or what happened to us. While imprisoned, we can be water boarded in Pol Pot fashion in order to extract confessions from us regarding our alleged terrorist activities or to “re-educate” us. Meanwhile, if enough of us protest and create a “public emergency” the president, at his sole discretion, can overrule the governors of the states of these United States and commandeer the National Guard, i.e. the militia, of those States and send them, along with federal military troops, including the mercenary outfit - Blackwater - to suppress any and all dissent in any state of the union

Folks, get out of denial. What we have in the here and now in the United States is dry kindling meticulously set for martial law and the imposition of despotism.

What recourse is left for us? Alexander Hamilton also addressed that critical issue in Federalist Paper # 28.

The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair.

What Hamilton said in plain language was, when our representatives have betrayed us, we must rush tumultuously to arms, that is, without order, with an uproar, riotously, armed only with our weapons and our courage. That time has come. We must rush to arms to assert our original right of self-defense. Our way of life, our liberty is being threatened by domestic enemies, by our very own representatives, who have sold us out.

Come out of denial, stop with the self-delusion. Other than succumbing to slavery and tyranny, a rush to arms is our only and last option. Our representatives are not listening to our words. They need to be taught a history lesson, that this country was founded on the original right of self-defense.

Those of us who love liberty, aim to defend our liberty with weapons as is our right. And our duty.

Waterboarding Was Considered Torture by the Cambodians

If U.S. attorney general nominee Michael Mukasey needs help in deciding whether waterboarding is torture or not, perhaps he should visit the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh Cambodia, where these photos were taken. They depict the torture technique, or as Mukasey and his ilk prefer to refer to it - "enhanced interrogation technique" - used by the Pol Pot Khmer Rouge regime.



The Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum is located in the former Khmer Rouge S-21 Prison. How many years before people from around the world will visit a similar museum in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, depicting the "enhanced interrogation" technique known as waterboarding approved of and used by the Bush/Cheney Regime?
