NSA Director Keith Alexander lied to the Congressional  House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).  Why?

  •  The National Security Agency has acknowledged in a new classified briefing that it does not need court authorization to listen to domestic phone calls, a participant in the briefing said.
  • Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, disclosed on Thursday that during a secret briefing to members of Congress, he was told that the contents of a phone call could be accessed “simply based on an analyst deciding that.”
  • If the NSA wants “to listen to the phone,” an analyst’s decision is sufficient, without any other legal authorization required, Nadler said he learned. “I was rather startled,” said Nadler, an attorney and congressman who serves on the House Judiciary committee.
  • Because the same legal standards that apply to phone calls also apply to e-mail messages, text messages, and instant messages, being able to listen to phone calls would mean the NSA analysts could also access the contents of Internet communications without going before a court and seeking approval.

Congressional oversight committees or not the U.S. Department of Defense ‘s National Security Agency has determined that it has the right to spy on U.S. citizens without due process of law and with the consent of the Department of Justice and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) courts.

This violates the U.S. Constitution’s Fourth Amendment and Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment.

  •  Fourth Amendment

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

  • Fourteenth Amendment Section 1.

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

While Federal Intelligence and Law Enforcement Agencies lie to Congressional Oversight Committees and American citizens, Edward Snowden continues to reveal accurate and incriminating allegations against  the United States Federal Government.

As charges of espionage are being leveled against Edward Snowden one has to wonder why charges of treason should not be leveled against the heads of the NSA, DOD, DIA, Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the National Security Advisor.

I want to know why  the term ‘Militia’ in the 2nd Amendment of our United States Constitution has become a dirty word in our culture and politics. It is because of the 2nd Amendment that the Japanese Army refused to invade the Continental United States during World War II. The Japanese  Army was terrified that every home and dwelling would be bristling with guns to protect our country in a time of war. And they couldn’t have been more correct in their assessment. The State Militias were mobilized during WW I and WW II to protect our Homeland while our young and brave soldiers,  sailors, and airmen carried the war to our enemies’ very shores and boarders.

“The reserve militia or unorganized militia, also created by the Militia Act of 1903 which presently consist of every able-bodied man of at least 17 and under 45 years of age who are not members of the National Guard or Naval Militia.(that is, anyone who would be eligible for a draft). Former members of the armed forces up to age 65 are also considered part of the “unorganized militia” per Sec 313 Title 32 of the US Code.”

However, the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, provides for an unorganized militia of every able-bodied man and woman to be ready to defend the Homeland against any threat both domestic and foreign. This Amendment predates, and thus supersedes,  all Acts of Congress; especially the United States National Security Act, the establishment of the United States Department of Homeland Security, and the United States Patriot Act. Because the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution has never been amended by the tenants of the Constitution of the United States of America it supersedes all State and Federal laws and acts. The States are therefore empowered, under the Constitution, to organize militias to protect State’s rights as granted by the Constitution of the United States of America and to protect the principles set forth by the Declaration of Independence

“A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Article II Section 2 of the Constitution of the United States of America states:

“The President shall be Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in the executive Departments, upon any Subject on the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to Grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.”

President John Adams, President Thomas Jefferson, and President James Madison make it perfectly clear in their communications that the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States is to guarantee each State’s individual rights to keep an unorganized militia which may be mobilized as an organized militia to protect the Constitution of the United States of America and to protect the sovereignty of each State and the United States of America as guaranteed by Article II Section 2 of the Constitution of the United States of America. That anyone, including the President, Vice-President, Executive Branch, Congressional Branch, or Judicial Branch of the United States Government may be considered as enemies of the “State”  if they exceed their powers as granted under the Constitution of the United States of America.

“And no law enacted by the Congress of the United States or the legislatures of said States shall supersede the rights of the citizens of these said States to form unorganized militias to protect and serve the Constitution of the United States to preserve our rights as stated in the Declaration of Independence.”

In order for the States of our Union to organize militias in a time of emergency it is imperative  each State guarantee a citizen’s access to any and all arms deemed necessary to meet the imperative threats for the security of said State’s citizens. The threat of individual rights and liberties in the United States has never been in greater peril from threats, both domestic and foreign. The growth and scope of the United States National Security Agency‘s powers to obstruct and invade our personal freedoms and privacy is unparalleled in our Nation’s history.

The States lost their rights of sovereignty when President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated  and the Union ceased being a Republic and the United States of America became the Federated States of America. The Federal Government was born and the States lost most of their rights as granted under the Constitution of the United States of America.

Then on July 26, 1947, President Harry S. Truman signed the National Security Act which stripped the States and individuals of most of their rights as granted under the Constitution. The Act was ratified by Congress on September 18, 1947 and enacted the formation of the Central Intelligence Agency from the newly formed Office of Special Operations, (the OSO evolved from the Army’s Office of Strategic Services and the Central Intelligence Group), as well as, the United States Air Force from the Army Air Corp as separate services. History tells us the National Security Act was signed by the President aboard Air Force One, nearly two months prior to the ratification of the Act by Congress. How could Air Force One exist nearly two months before the Act was actually ratified and officially created the United States Air Force?

Another question I have is “Why was the National Security Act signed by President Truman just twenty days after the Roswell UFO Incident?” What was so terrifying about the Roswell UFO Incident that the US Government felt a need to take such a Draconian action?

After 9/11 the USA Patriot Act was signed into law granting the Federal Government even more power while stripping States and individuals of more rights. The assault on our individual freedoms continue today as drones are used to spy on US citizens without due process as the U.S. strides closer to a police state.

National Security Agency – America’s Orwellian Big Brother

“The NSA Is Building the Country’s Biggest Spy Center (Be Careful of Your Communications and Web Content)”

If Big Brother isn’t watching you now, they will be soon! The National Security Agency, an agency of the United States Department of Defense, is planning on building the largest Federal Spy Center in the United States. The NSA is the sister spy organization to the Defense Intelligence Agency or DIA of the Department of Defense. Legally, neither organization has the right to spy domestically under the Constitution of the United States of America and since the first National Security Act became effective on September 18, 1947, (signed on July 26, 1947, only 20 days after the Roswell UFO Incident).

“The National Security Act of 1947 (Pub.L. 80-253, 61 Stat. 495, codified at 50 U.S.C.ch.15) was an Act of Congress signed by PresidentTruman on 26 July 1947, which realigned and reorganized the U.S. Armed Forcesforeign policy, and Intelligence Community apparatus in the aftermath of World War II. The majority of the provisions of the Act took effect on September 18, 1947, the day after the Senate confirmed James Forrestal as the first Secretary of Defense. His power was extremely limited and it was difficult for him to exercise the authority to make his office effective. This was later changed in the amendment to the act in 1949, creating what was to be the Department of Defense.”

You are not only being outsourced by your country, but if Big Brother (the NSA) isn’t watching you now they soon will be. As the FBI issues Request for Proposals for software to spy on Social Media web sites, the NSA plans on spying on the world using all electronic media, both nationally and internationally, at their disposal.

This is in addition to the NSA’s high-resolution satellite video, audio, and electronic surveillance. The NSA and other U.S. Government Agencies, (including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Fire Arms, & Explosives (BATFE or commonly known as the ATF), Department of Homeland Security (DHS)Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE),  U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the United States Secret Service, the United States Marshals ServiceNational Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the National Security Council (NSC)), are using aerial surveillance drones of every make and model, both military and private industrial, in conjunction with State, County, and Municipal Law Enforcement assets to spy on United States private citizens without due process of law as specified in the United States Constitution.

As a member of the US Department of Defense the NSA has no legal right to spy on US citizens. NSA national and inter-national surveillance will be expanded with the building and implementation of this new ultra-modern and expansive data center. The NSA will conduct their surveillance without accountability to the Department of Homeland Security nor does it seem that the Department of Justice will interfere with NSA operations.

With the building of the new NSA super data center facility they will be able to tap into all other United States Federal, State, Territorial, County, and Municipal surveillance technology to coordinate their Orwellian Policy. They will also be able to tap into foreign intelligence and  law enforcement assets.

As a member of the U.S. Department of Defense the NSA has no legal right to spy on US citizens. NSA national and international surveillance will be expanded with the building and implementation of this new ultra-modern and expansive data center. NSA surveillance without accountability to the Department of Homeland Security or the Department of Justice.

The National Security Council, (made up of the President and Vice President of the United States, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the Pentagon’s Joint Chief of Staff, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Director of National Intelligence (DNI). and the National Security Advisor), will wield totalitarian power over all citizens of the United States.

With no oversight, (or obviously insight) provided for the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice there will be an attempt on their respective parts to acquire intelligence from the NSA to supplement their own means of gathering domestic intelligence on anti-american agents, activists, and parties, both domestic and foreign, and of their activities to do harm to the security of our nation. The Department of Homeland Security is actively involved in equipping their agencies with the latest technologies available for gathering this intelligence. One such resource available to DHS is its own U.S. Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) Student & Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) Database. DHS’s Federal Bureau of Investigation plans on spying on Social Media web sites and their subscribers. This will add to their already growing number of Cyber-Space Surveillance Technologies currently implemented and planned for implementation.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie must be wondering what is wrong with his fellow Republican Congressional Representatives as they stall Sandy Storm reparation and re-building funds for his irate and angered constituents who have waited nearly two months for direly needed relief aid.

The current chain of events show how little influence the House Speaker Boehner has over his Republican Congress. The Republicans are in a state of complete disarray as they bicker, back stab, and continue their in-fighting with each other over serious Congressional Funding issues.

A Great Republican President once stated that no house divided can long stand. And so Abraham Lincoln’s great wisdom goes unheeded as Congress becomes a quagmire of inaction, lacking in civility and charity.

Republican Conservative John W. Dean is deeply vexed by a party which has become “Conservatives Without a Conscience”. The recent $9 Billion stop-gap bill to provide badly needed relief to Sandy Storm victims falls far short of the $60 Billion required for rebuilding and subsidizing a recovery for storm victims, who are suffering physically, mentally, and the indignity of not being valued American citizens.

Today, Conservative Fundamentalist Republicans scorn President Ronald Reagan and both father and son George H.W. Bush’s and George W. Bush’s fiscal spending policies, while resolutely quiet about President Bill Clinton‘s fiscal spending policies. I wonder how these “fiscally responsible Republicans” would have felt about President Eisenhower‘s funding of the National Interstate Highway System which has paid for itself a hundred times over for itself. Construction was authorized by the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956, and the original portion was completed 35 years later. The cost of construction has been estimated at $425 billion (in 2006 dollars).

I doubt any of these “Neo-Fiscal-Fascist Republicans” realize how close they are to being “Fascist  Capitalists” like those who supported Francisco Franco y Bahamonde, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

I can only wonder what the “Neo-Fiscal-Fascist Republicans” “final solution” will be for the Sandy Storm Victims. Right now they are $51 Billion shy of the beginning of a real solution.

What would Founding Father, President Thomas Jefferson have done with these “Neo-Fiscal-Fascist Republicans”? He probably would have put them under an Executive Order of Arrest for deliberately endangering American lives.

President Obama’s only alternative may be to declare a “State of National Emergency” in New York, Rhode Island, and Connecticut and force Congress to allocate the required relief funds or suffer Executive Order’s to have the Department of Justice to bring suit to the Supreme Court accusing Congress for endangering our National Security! President John Quincy Adams would not have hesitated to take said action under such circumstances.

“This is the story no one wanted to write nor does anyone want to read. But it had to be told.”

After the terrible massacre and tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting of Newtown, Fairfield County, Connecticut and comparisons to the Massacre at Columbine High School, Jefferson County, Colorado a gross misunderstanding of the types of weapons which were used in both mass killings seems to have pervaded the press by journalists and political pundits, as well as, politicians all of whom have not proven that they have any expertise or knowledge to be commenting on.

We need to thoroughly understand the types of firearms which were used in each tragedy and the characteristics, in each case, to properly categorize the weapons which were used in both shooting incidents.

First of all, the shape of the firearms used do not delineate the category of weapons which were used in both incidents. It is the ballistics of the ammunition or caliber and actions or firing mechanism characteristics which determine the type of weapon category each firearm would fall under.

The Columbine shootings did not include the AR-15 semi-automatic sporting rifle category of firearm. Instead the perpetrators of the massacre at Columbine used mostly 12-gauge shot-guns, one semi-automatic 9mm parabellum caliber machine pistol, and 9mm side-arms or pistols.

This fact is important in that no ‘Assault Weapon‘ category firearms were used at Columbine.

What makes a rifle or carbine an  ‘Assault Weapon’ is the caliber of ammunition used by the weapon in relation to the firing mechanism of the weapon. An ‘Assault Weapon’ is defined as a weapon which uses a particular family of calibers of ammunition in relation to the firing mechanism which may be fully automatic, partially automatic, or semi-automatic.

The ‘Assault Weapon’ may belong to one of several categories of weapons using a variety of ammunition and firing mechanisms. Typically an ‘Assault Weapon’ has one of these several combinations of characteristics:

  • Fully automatic sub-machine guns and fully automatic machine-pistol firearms which fire the shorter pistol caliber ammunition typically, but not limited to, 9mm parabellum or caliber .45 ACP. These weapons may be adapted to fire smaller caliber ammunition including a wide variety of .22 caliber ammunition or the mid-sized .40 S&W caliber ammunition.
  • A fully automatic or semi-automatic M14, M1A Springfield, or FN FAL battle rifle or carbine firing a .308 Winchester or military 7.62x51mm NATO round of ammunition.

  • The new selective fire Bull-Pup designed ‘Assault Rifles‘ firearms produced for a few of calibers but primarily the .223 Remington/5.56x45mm NATO calibers.
  • And CQB and PDW weapons in most cases using pistol cartridge in 9mm parabellum or a newer small 4.6×30 mm cartridge. Primary examples of CQB and PDW firearms are the H&K’s MP5 or MP7,  or the popular Israeli Uzi.

  • Almost all non-revolver pistols are semi-automatic. The most popular caliber is the 9mm parabellum, followed by the American .40 S&W and .45 ACP calibers.
  • The first fully automatic heavy machine gun was the Maxim Machine Gun invented by Hiram Maxim prior to WW I.  The ammunition was belt fed and the gun and tripod it rested on were so heavy it took three men to man it. John Moses Browning invented a clip fed light machine gun prior to the end of WW I, called the Browning Automatic Rifle or BAR. Many heavy and light machine guns were invented after WW I, WW II, and the Korean and Viet Nam Wars, including belt fed and clip fed models in many different calibers of ammunition.

During any school or campus shootings no heavy, light, or sub-machine gun was used during the course of the murderous crimes. Only a full, partial or burst (burst of three rounds automatically fired), or semi-automatic ‘Assault Weapon’ may have been used in some of the crimes.

AR-15 Bushmaster

AR-15 Bushmaster

The mass murderer of Sandy Hook Elementary School, Jefferson County, Connecticut used a model AR-15 Bushmaster in .223 Remington caliber. The reason for the 30 round clips of ammunition is because the .223 cartridge has a reputation for not having any knock down power.

This has been the primary complaint of the M16 by U.S. Troops since the Viet Nam War and was illustrated during the incident in Mogadishu, Somalia known as ‘Black Hawk Down’, when U.S. Rangers complained their M16 rifles and M4 carbines using 5.56x45mm NATO ammunition repeatedly failed to drop combatants after the combatants had been hit several times.

The murderer’s lack of ballistic knowledge caused horrific carnage and suffering of the defenseless children and school personnel as he fired repeatedly at many of his victims hitting them more than once, and as many as five times, before they were killed.

One can only imagine what kind of carnage the murders at Columbine perpetrated on their victims with 12-gauge shot guns. Blasts from 12-gauge shot guns are horrific and physically and mentally shattering. Those that live through such an ordeal suffer untold pain from their wounds.

Remington 870 MM

The 12-gauge shot-gun is not considered by law as an ‘Assault Weapon’. Yet if I had to defend myself in Close Quarters Combat (CQB) I would want such a weapon to quickly repel my assailants. Law enforcement and our military use shot guns for CQB operations due to their effectiveness to knock down and out any assailant.

Since the Los Angeles, Hollywood bank robbery shootout where the LAPD armed with only 9mm pistols and 12-gauge shot guns were severely out gunned by the two bank robbers armed with Chinese Type 56 designed AK47  fully automatic ‘Assault Rifles’  while wearing body armor. the LAPD has since armed their officers with M16 or AR-15 weapons using ammunition to penetrate body armor.

For all intents and purposes the effectiveness of the .223 Remington/5.56x45mm NATO round is completely dependent on the shooter. Because the round is in effect a .22 caliber round the placement of the shots are of extreme importance. The caliber is most effective when spotted at soft tissue covering vital organs and of little effect when striking ‘flesh covered bone’ protecting vital organs. For all intents and purposes the round is most effective when taking head and neck shots which requires a high degree of proficiency on the part of the shooter.

Vastly superior calibers of ammunition for effect are the .308 Winchester/7.62X51mm NATO; .240 APEX or Mag, .257 Roberts, .300 Savage, 45-70 Gov., .30-06, and various .300 magnum full rifle calibers which are most effective when used in bolt-action and lever-action rifles with longer barrels (rifled barrels of 20″ – 28″ or more) or rifled carbines (lighter rifles with barrels of 18″ – 24″ and commonly referred to as scout rifles). Even at close range, say 100 yards or less the .30-.30 cartridge may be more effective than the .223 Remington/5.56×45 NATO.

Remington 6.8 Caliber Comparison

Remington 6.8 Caliber Comparison

The most effective ‘Assault Rifle’ caliber rounds out to 300 yards/meters are the 6.5x38mm Grendel or 6.8x43mm SPC Remington, the Russian AK47 Kalashnikov 7.62x39mm cartridge, and the .308 Winchester/7.62x51mm NATO full rifle round.

For semi-automatic pistol calibers the .40 S&W, .45 ACP; and hollow tipped 9mm parabellum semi-automatic rounds are the most popular for anti-personnel rounds. There may be a bitter debate about the merits of the .380 ACP developed by John Moses Browning in 1908. However, with the development of the mini-9mm semi-auto pistols the 9mm parabellum seems it will remain the smallest, most effective, anti-personnel semi-automatic cartridge.

For revolvers the hollow tip .38 Special cartridge and .44 Special, .45 Colt and .357 magnum calibers are the most common anti-personnel rounds. Many contend that the .44 magnum, and calibers larger than the .45 Colt are the most effective revolver calibers, yet they again require a great deal of proficiency to master.

I’ve given you a brief overview of what weapons are available to anarchists, terrorists, drug cartels, robbers, thieves, bandits, pirates and murderers. Please get to know them and recognize them and what they are capable of doing in order to protect yourselves.

Please take heed from this posting. The next occurrence of terrorism in our schools and campuses is most likely to be a ‘Czechia Hostage Incident’ where gun wielding terrorists with para-military training will take hostage a whole school or campus with booby traps and human bombs. Our schools and college campuses are prime targets for terrorists seeking martyrdom. The Department of Homeland Defense has no plans or contingencies in place to defend our education system from such a threat. The DHS has contingency plans only for dealing for this type of terrorism after the threat has been realized. Such plans would include using Delta Force and other U.S. military Special Operation Tactical Forces to augment the FBI’s and ATF’s Special Task Forces to contain the incident. ‘Contain‘ is defined as taking back the school or campus with the minimum loss of civilian/hostage casualties.

My only recommendation is to arm yourself. Learn firearm safety and practice it as a religion. Master your weapon(s) and take a course in tactical defensive shooting and hand to hand combat. Do it and do it now! The next school could be your child’s. Be armed, be aware, and be prepared to ‘take action with deadly force’ to protect those you love.

The easiest and most practical and pragmatic lethal self-defense Martial Art to learn is Krav Maga. If you cannot find a Krav Maga instructor near you then I suggest finding a good jiu-jitsu (Jujutsu) school to join as it is the foundation of Krav Maga. Stay away from stylistic and competition styles of the Martial Arts like Tai Kwon Do (Taekwondo). And do not join an esoteric Martial Arts school like Kung Fu or Okinawa-te. The only other Martial Art worth pursuing is Aikido, which is great form of Martial Art to pursue if you already practice Qi Qong and/or T’ai chi ch’uan (Tai Chi). The only problem is finding a real Aikido Sen-Sei (Teacher/Instructor).

The Declaration of Independence of the United States of America places the burden of safety on yourself and for those you love, as well as, your neighbors and community. The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America guarantees you those rights.

No Law Enforcement or Government Agencies can protect you from these threats. You have to take responsibility for yourself. Do so now, or you and those you love will become victims. If you think the Government cares … ask them “How many armed sentinels they have on any given school campus in this country?”. You already know the answer. You have seen the results. The next incident will only be worse unless you take decisive action to defend you, yours, and those you love and respect.

We are at war with Terrorism. The enemy could be the neighbor next door or half a world away. Either way, he can be on your door step tomorrow.

To answer the question posed by the title of this posting … “What is an ‘Assault Weapon’? I can only hope it is you’. You had better be an ‘assault weapon’ when you and those you love are threatened. Train to be so.

The only way to defeat an extremist is to prepare yourself to make the same sacrifices.

I will give you some advice and the analogy is to an old saying:

“Never bring a knife to a gun fight!”

When confronted with a situation which is untenable but gives you time to make a quick assessment of the situation to determine you are unreasonably risking the lives of those you are trying to protect … call for help immediately. Call 911 or scream for someone to call 911 to get the right resources on scene.

If you have a choice of fight or flight then the better part of valor is the discretion of flight.

If you are trapped and have no means to regress then fight like hell! Remember your tactical training and breath. Use your muscle memory you have gained from practice to react to each situation as it presents itself.

If you focus on what will happen to yourself then you will surely lose!

But if you focus on your training and take out the most dangerous combatants first you will quickly gain the advantage and may even cause your combatants to lose morale and start to regress themselves.

Control your shot selection and double tap each combatant with confidence before moving to the next greatest threat. This will conserve ammunition and reduce the number of reloads you will require.

When trapped, fight like a Tiger with total viciousness and deadliness!

Always remember your training and always know when you are out gunned!

I leave you with this quote from Sun Tzu

“Know your enemy as you know yourself and you will fight a hundred battles without suffering a single defeat!”

While the Department of Defense, and its National Security Agency and Defense Intelligence Agency carry on domestic national spy programs on U.S. Citizens violating the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights; the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation declares War on the White House, Director of National Intelligence, and the  Central Intelligence Agency.

The FBI investigation sanctioned by the Department of Justice of CIA Director General David H. Petraeus exposed his extra-marital affair which FBI officials identified as Ms. Broadwell leading to the immediate resignation of General Petraeus. The Department of Justice has now succeeded in removing one of very few military minds which has successfully protected this country from attacks by terrorists throughout the world.

The DOJ and FBI has succeeded in making this country far more vulnerable to terrorist attacks in the future by removing one our generation’s greatest military and counter-intelligence minds. They have also created a vacuüm which the DoD‘s NSA and DIA is all to willing to fill by increasing their violation of individual freedoms under the Constitution of the United States.

The White House, Director of National Intelligence, and the Congressional Senate and House Committees where caught totally by surprise by the charges levied against General Petraeus. The credibility of the entire Federal Law Enforcement, National Intelligence Agencies, and National Defense Agencies are now in question.

Many questions surrounding National Security need to be answered. First of all; Why did a Federal Agency not coordinate its investigation with all National Security Agencies since one of the most important Agencies was at the center of the investigation. This was the primary reason the Department of Homeland Security formed after 9/11. Yet all protocols to protect the citizens of this Nation were circumvented.

The damage done is enormous. The complete destruction and career of one of the United States most decorated military and counter-intelligence leaders over an extra-marital affair which employees, agents, and lawyers in the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation would not be able to deny themselves. Nothing was gained by this investigation while the interests of National Security have been highly compromised. The White House’s advisers and the President’s Cabinet will now be focused on what other nefarious investigations being conducted by the FBI while the DoD Agencies continue to violate the Constitution of the United States and the rights of private citizens with impunity.

But one thing which has become most prominently obvious. After investing hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars in the Department of Homeland Security it  continues to flounder about with no real charter as an entity bloated of uncoördinated Federal Agencies and hundreds of billions of wasted tax dollars while providing no real services to this country or its citizens. The other obvious deficiency is the Department of Justices ability to effectively investigate and prosecute real national security threats to the citizens of this country.

The Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense need to be investigated by a joint Congressional National Security Committee to assess the charters of and necessity for some Agencies and possibly the existence of DHS as a Federal Government Entity.

The Federal Government of the United States believes that the United States Seal Teams are Federal Government Assets which are answerable only to the United States Department of Defense, National Security Council, Joint Chiefs of Staff, and President of the United States of America.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The members of all United States Military Departments and Agencies answer for their actions to “We the People”. The U.S. Government has assumed the mantle of the “Supreme Law of the Land”. Yet they have continually proven they do not have to answer to anyone but themselves, least of all to those who have given them the privilege to serve.

All members of Seal Team Six are National Heroes not U.S. Government heroes. They answer to, and only to, “We the People” whom they have given an oath to serve and protect under the Constitution of the United States of America. They will not be held accountable under oath to the Government of the United States of America under any legislative act concerning National Security unless the citizens of the United States deem they have violated their oath under the Constitution. All charges against Seal Team Six by the Department of Defense must be dropped immediately in the interests of National Security as the members of Seal Team Six are heroes of “The People”.

“We the People” have “a right to know” what our “Government” is doing in the interests of National Security to determine if said Federal Government Officials are acting in the best interests of the Nation under the Constitution. It is the people governed by the Constitution of the United States who determine what is in our best interests and those officials appointed U.S. Government officials which have not been elected to their offices by a popular vote and yet act as elected executives of the Government and feel unfettered by the Constitution of this country which guarantees the rights of all citizens who have elected their officials by popular vote.

“We the People” in order to form a “More Perfect Union” and not a “Federal Government” demand our U.S. Government to answer for its actions. If the currently elected Federal Government refuses to abide by the Constitution of these United States it is within our power to relieve them of their duties in any manner deemed necessary to return the Federal Government to operate under the tenants of the Constitution of the United States.

National Security AgencyAmerica’s Orwellian Big Brother

“The NSA Is Building the Country’s Biggest Spy Center (Be Careful of Your Communications and Web Content)”

If Big Brother isn’t watching you now, they will be soon! The National Security Agency, an agency of the United States Department of Defense, is planning on building the largest Federal Spy Center in the United States.

You are not only being outsourced by your country, if Big Brother (the NSA) isn’t watching you now they soon will be. As the FBI issues Request for Proposals for software to spy on Social Media web sites, the NSA plans on spying on the world using all electronic media, both nationally and internationally, at their disposal.
This is in addition to the NSA‘s high resolution satellite video, audio, and electronic surveillance. The NSA and other U.S. Government Agencies, (including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Fire Arms, & Explosives (BATFE or commonly known as the ATF), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE),  U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the United States Secret Service, the United States Marshals ServiceNational Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the National Security Council (NSC)), are using aerial surveillance drones of every make and model, both military and private industrial, in conjunction with State, County, and Municipal Law Enforcement assets to spy on United States private citizens without due process of law as specified in the United States Constitution.
As a member of the US Department of Defense the NSA has no legal right to spy on US citizens. NSA national and international surveillance will be expanded with the building and implementation of this new ultra-modern and expansive data center. The NSA will conduct their surveillance without accountability to the Department of Homeland Security nor does it seem that the Department of Justice will interfere with NSA operations.
With the building of the new NSA super data center facility they will be able to tap into all other United States Federal, State, Territorial, County, and Municipal surveillance technology to coordinate their Orwellian Policy. They will also be able to tap into foreign intelligence and  law enforcement assets.

NSA surveillance without accountability to the Department of Homeland Security or the Department of Justice.
The National Security Council, (made up of the President and Vice President of the United States, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the Pentagon’s Joint Chief of Staff, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Director of National Intelligence (DNI). and the National Security Advisor), will wield totalitarian power over all citizens of the United States.
With no oversight, (or obviously insight) provided for the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice there will be an attempt on their respective parts to acquire intelligence from the NSA to supplement their own means of gathering domestic intelligence on anti-american agents, activists, and parties, both domestic and foreign, and of their activities to do harm to the security of our nation. The Department of Homeland Security is actively involved in equipping their agencies with the latest technologies available for gathering this intelligence. One such resource available to DHS is its own U.S. Customs and Immigration Services (USCISStudent & Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) Database. DHS‘s Federal Bureau of Investigation plans on spying on Social Media web sites and their subscribers. This will add to their already growing number of Cyber-Space Surveillance Technologies currently implemented and planned for implementation.
