Who is Really Running Capitol Hill?

Who is Really Running Capitol Hill?
By Doc Vega
We have seen so many contradictory actions within the Republican and Democratic Parties supporting unproductive policies and detrimental bill passage many Americans must truly question what the true motives of our federal government must be. Why would nationalized healthcare be supported by our politicians when they know a growing majority of US citizens are turning against Obamacare? We see members of Congress refusing to listen to the will of the people.  Even when one of the original drafters of Obamacare, Max Baucus has admitted the legislation is a train wreck still the Senate and members of Congress pursue it.

Planned Parenthood to Pay $1.4 Million in Medicaid Fraud Settlement


Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, which serves southeast Texas and Louisiana, agreed this week to pay $1.4 million to the state of Texas, settling claims that one of the largest abortion providers in the Southeast had fraudulently overbilled the state’s Medicaid program.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s office stated that its investigation into the fraud allegations “revealed that Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast improperly billed the Texas Medicaid program for products and services that were never actually rendered, not medically necessary, and were not covered by the Medicaid program.”

The Texas Planned Parenthood allegedly “falsified material information in patients’ medical records” to bolster fraudulent claims for reimbursement.

Alliance Defending Freedom’s recent analysis of state and federal audits of family planning programs suggests that in 12 states, Planned Parenthood affiliates overbilled Medicaid for more than $8 million. One federal audit of New York’s Medicaid family planning program reported that certain providers, “especially Planned Parenthoods,” had engaged in improper practices resulting in overpayment.

Despite mounting accusations of fraud, the organization that performs roughly one out of every four abortions in the U.S. has continued to ride the waves of taxpayer funding to annual surpluses. During its last reporting year alone, Planned Parenthood received over half a billion dollars in taxpayer government funding, all the while performing a record 333,964 abortions. To solidify its place as the top abortion provider in the country, Planned Parenthood announced that all local affiliates would have to begin providing abortion services starting in 2013.


If allegations of fraud and its single-minded provision of abortion services isn’t enough to question a continual stream of taxpayer dollars, Planned Parenthood’s opposition to legal protections for infants born after botched abortions and the group’s apparent willingness to abet the sex trafficking of minor girls should at least raise scrutiny of the organization’s federal funding.

The organization also allegedly turned a blind eye to unsafe and unsanitary conditions in Pennsylvania and Virginia. State officials began investigating a Planned Parenthood in Delaware this spring after two of the clinic’s nurses quit, claiming that the clinic kept unsafe, unsanitary conditions while performing what one report called “meat-market style of assembly-line abortions.”

“Planned Parenthood is far less concerned with providing competent healthcare to women than it is with padding its bottom line with taxpayer dollars,” says Alliance Defending Freedom in its report.
Yet this is the group that President Obama vowed to support, “fighting every step of the way.” And this is the industry that stands to benefit from an influx of abortion funding under Obamacare.

Policymakers looking for organizations that are capable of self-funding more of their activities would do well to view Planned Parenthood’s subsidies with a critical eye.

Who Are the Nicolaitans?

From biblestudy.org:

When Jesus walked among men, He taught His disciples to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, whom He denounced as hypocrites. With them, He classed the chief priests and the temple officials, together with teachers in the synagogues. He declared that they had so corrupted the truth of God with the doctrines of men (the same sin as the Nicolaitans) that the truth, as originally given, was no longer with them. That which these blind leaders of the blind were giving forth as truth was making their converts more the children of hell than they were. The deeds of these false teachers are in the second chapter of Revelation. It states "To the angel of the church of Ephesus write, 'These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands . . . But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate." (Revelation 2:1, 6)
The doctrines taught by these false teachers are in Revelation's letter to the church in Pergamos: "And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write, 'These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword . . . Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.' " (Revelation 2:12, 15)
The Lord not only demands repentance from those who believe and practice these things he also threatens severe punishment if they do not obey: "Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place - unless you repent." (Revelation 2:5).
The Greek word for Nicolaitans (Strong's Concordance Number #G3531) found in Revelation is actually three Greek words combined. As a proper noun, it TRANSFERS, but not translated, into English. The three words used are:
  • NIKOS. We use the English equivalents instead of the Greek letters, as we shall also of the other two. Nikos is defined as "a conquest; victory; triumph; the conquered; and by implication, dominancy over the defeated." Another transferred name in which this term is used is "Nicopolis," which is composed of Niko, which means conquest and polis, which means city. This means Nicopolis means the city of conquest, or city of victory.
  • LAOS. This word means people.It also is in NICOLAS, which transfers and composes into 'Nikos-laos.' This means one who is "victorious over the people," the letter "s" being in both words the nominative case ending, which is retained only at the end of the word to denote the case, while "a" short and "o" short are contracted into "a" long. A still further transferred use of LAOS is found in the name LaoSdiceans (Strong's Concordance Number #G2994), compounded with DIKE or DICE. In the word Laodiceans, we have LAOS, meaning the people, and DICE, meaning judgment or vengeance. The Greek word la(ic)os means "laymen," of which LA-OS is the root and stem, to which the plural definite article TON is joined to form LAITON, which is Greek for "the laity."
  • TON is contracted into a long "a," thus making the word TAN which is the genitive case plural in all the genders of the definite article 'the.'
We therefore have, without the legal Greek construction, the English hyphenated word NIKOS-LAOS-TON, but which, with its lawful contractions, becomes the English translation found in Revelation.

What is the real world meaning of the word?
In its native tongue and its ecclesiastical setting, Nicolaitans means the bishops and prelates of the Church have gained a triumphal victory or conquest over the LAITON, the laity. Members are compelled and forced to submit to the arbitrary dominion of men who have become that thing which God hates:
"The elders who are among you I exhort, I who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that will be revealed:  Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; NOR AS BEING LORDS OVER THOSE ENTRUSTED TO YOU, but being examples to the flock" (1Peter 5:1-3).
The teachings and preaching of the Nicolaitans are in religious and secular dictionaries. When we look for the definition of the term we find it is a "hierarchy: the power of dominion, government by ecclesiastical rulers" we find the following, which is offered as evidence:
"If anyone shall say that there is not in the Catholic Church a hierarchy established by the divine ordination, consisting of bishops, presbyters and ministers, let him be anathema, Council of Trent (translation) XXIII 6." (Century Dictionary)
In other words, let anyone who has the audacity to say there is not a hierarchy, not a collection of human beings who try to exercise authority over others, as ecclesiastical rulers over churchmen, let that man be ACCURSED --- let death and hell and the devil get him. Surely, the thing in which that ecclesiastical company is glorying is their shame!
Webster's dictionary defines the word "episcopal" as "the power of government, belonging to, or invested in, bishops or prelates. Government of the church by bishops." It also says, "in episcopacy, the order of bishops is superior to the other clergy, and has exclusive power to confer orders."
The above definition affirms that a certain portion of presbyters (elders) were "in apostolic times superior in authority to ordinary presbyters." It also mentions the fact that episcopacy recognizes "episcopal rank," which is created by the institution thus governed. It all of which affirms that any church in which episcopal government obtains is practicing the very carnal and fleshly iniquity of creating "superiors" in what should be a holy brotherhood. The use of this appellation makes INFERIORS out of brethren who are in the selfsame clergy.
How can RANK and HIERARCHY destroy a church?
The approbation of "ordinary elders" demands a set of elders who are extra special, thus creating "rank" (caste) in the otherwise Divine brotherhood, all of which DESTROYS holy fellowship, creates division and strife, and fosters envy. It is no marvel that Jesus hates this, condemns it, and demands the guilty repent.
The question is will those who follow the ways of the Nicolaitans repent? Yes, some will when the tribulation is on. Others, however, will stick to their ecclesiastical crowd, vainly imagining that their boasted "superiority" will carry them through that time of the greatest trouble the world has ever known, or will know. They must go down with the rest of the hosts of Antichrist.

Video: Anti-Jewish Riots in Jerusalem

Arab mob smashes windshields of cars as frantic Jews make getaway. This is Jerusalem, 2013.


Arab rioters

Flash 90

A video uploaded Wednesday shows a frenzied Arab mob targeting cars driven by Jews as they pass near Jerusalem's Damascus (Shechem) Gate.

The video was uploaded to the “Free Qudss” account on YouTube, and to a group by a similar name on Facebook.

The text at the start of the video reads: "Destroying the settlers cars and arrests", and claims to have been taken near Damascus Gate.

The account's operators and the videographers claim the events are from Tuesday evening, and that the identities of the attackers had been blurred out to protect them from being identified.

Scenes of mayhem like these are becoming increasingly frequent in Jerusalem and other parts of Israel.

Just this morning, Jewish residents of the Abu Tor neighbourhood woke up to find the tires of their cars slashed in an apparent attack by Arab extremists.

Some parts of Jerusalem have become virtually no-go areas for Jewish residents. The Mount of Olives for example, site of an ancient Jewish cemetery, has become a danger zone, with Jews afraid to approach their ancestors' graves.

This latest video comes less than a day after a Jewish man was stabbed in the same area of Jerusalem.

This widespread grassroots terror against Jews has gone mostly unreported elsewhere in the media, and is often reported exclusively on Arutz Sheva.

Living in a Communist Economy

By Alan Caruba (Bio and Archives)  Sunday, July 21, 2013

In the former Soviet Union, the joke was “They pretend to pay us and we pretend to work.” It took over four decades of the Cold War to finally put an end to the lie that Communism as an economic system works. After the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, the Soviet Union came to an end on December 25, 1991. By then Communism worldwide had killed hundreds of millions of people.

Now, it is true that America is not a Communist nation, but by doggedly pursuing the theories put forth by Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin, as well as the historically failed theories of Keynes, a British economist who believed that the government must pump money into the economy to keep it afloat, Obama has been trying to turn our Capitalist economy into a Communist one,

Calling our economy “Communist” may seem unduly harsh, but under Obama and his predecessors, the government is in charge of the banking sector, the health and insurance industries, General Motors was nationalized, the government is deeply involved in mortgage lending and now controls student loans. Now stand back and ask if the government—the State—is not now more Communist than Capitalist?

Wedded to failed economic theories, Obama has utterly failed to turn around the economy after the 2008 financial crisis and ensuing recession.

Writing in the August 2012 edition of Forbes magazine, Louis Woodhill said, “If mismanaging an economic recovery were an Olympic event, President Obama would be standing on the middle platform right now, accept the gold medal. Deep recessions are supposed to be followed by strong recoveries, but, under Obama, the worst recession since the 1930s has been followed by the slowest economic recovery in the history of the republic. In a very real sense, there has been no recovery at all—things are still getting worse.”

Obama still has three and a half years to make things ever more worse than they are. A Marxist in every sense of the word, Obama is so wedded to his belief in “redistribution” of wealth, that he spent the first term blaming his failed economic policies in George W. Bush and blathering endlessly about “millionaires and billionaires.” If the government confiscated all their wealth, it would barely pay for its operation for a month, if that.

The way most people experience a bad economy is whether they are employed or not. The self-employed feel it in reduced income, It is always one of the best indicators of the success or failure of whether things are improving or not.

As of July 2013, the United States has been in 54 straight months with an unemployment rate at 7.5% or higher. As Terrence P. Jeffery, the managing editor of CNSnews, recently noted, it is “the longest stretch of unemployment at or above that rate since 1948, when the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) started calculating the national unemployment rate.”

Under normal circumstances, Obama would have been defeated by Bozo the Clown in 2012, but he has had the support of the mainstream media from the day he started campaigning for the presidency. That is a powerful instrument of influence, but there is nothing to say it will continue what Bernard Goldberg called its “slobbering love affair” with Obama.

In June CNSnews reporter Elizabeth Harrington noted that there is still “a near record 89 million Americans not in the labor force.” The BLS put the number at 89,705,000 in May. “9.3 million Americans have left the workforce during the presidency of Barack Obama.” When broken down into categories, it means that Afro-Americans saw a rise in May to 13.5% or 11,599,000. Even the employer of last resort, the federal government, saw a decline to a mere 20,361,000. In a Communist society, in theory everyone works for the state.

Where the government becomes the source of all good things, it is worth noting that, as of April, the Department of Agriculture reported that a record number of 23 million households in America are now on food stamps. There are, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, 115,310,000 households, meaning that one in five is receiving this government handout.

Virtually everyone knows someone who has lost their job and is searching for a new one., but life under Obama has been especially harsh for the newest generation coming out of high school and college. Generation Opportunity, a non-partisan youth advocacy organization announced its “Millennial Jobs Report” for June, specific to 18-to-29 year olds. With the overall unemployment rate at 7.5%, for this cohort, it is 16.1%!

It is worth keeping in mind that a nation—any nation—with a large group of unemployed youths, the prospects for protests and other problems are a historic fact. They have a lot of energy and no place to apply it. They are also easily manipulated.

In addition to bad economic policies, the government is going all-out to impose thousands of new regulations on all aspects of the economy and our lives. Historian Niall Ferguson, writing in a June edition of The Wall Street Journal, cited the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Clyde Wayne Crews’ annual survey of the federal regulatory state, noting that “the 2012 Federal Register—the official directory of regulation—today runs to 78,961 pages. Back in 1986 it was 44,812 pages. In 1936, it was just 2,620.”

This is national death by regulation strangulation and the President recently unleashed the Environmental Protection Agency even more by declaring “climate change” is a top priority. The EPA is in the process of killing coal-fired plants responsible for just under 50% of all the electricity we use. It wants to increase the amount of ethanol in our gasoline, damaging our auto’s engines at the same time it reduces the mileage they produce.

So, if you think we are still functioning in a free market economy, it is as great an illusion as was Communism in the former Soviet Union. When it was no longer defensible, that nation collapsed and was replaced by a truncated former empire, the Russian federation.

If the United States should face total financial collapse, there will be no real freedom left anywhere in the world. Just as any true Communist would want.

Posted on by

Not many years ago, a traditional church dropped “Onward Christian Soldiers” from their song list because it made reference to, “War”. That is understandable for people who have never been born again. War, is the last thing on their minds.

So called Peacemakers, meeting in a building which they have convinced themselves to be a church. They are not born of the Spirit, pretending to be spiritual while embracing with open arms the natural world. They are spiritually insensitive because they are spiritually dead, spiritual zombies as the world would say.

Living as one of the world becomes even more disturbing, those that think they are alive but actually are spiritually dead, actually think there is peace between man and GOD. The Bible makes it clear that the unregenerated man is an enemy of GOD. This enemy of GOD, holds himself higher than GOD in his mind, through wicked works and prideful boastings. Anyone who is a friend of the world is an enemy of God:

“Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.” (Romans 8:7)

“Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” (James 4:4)

“For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to GOD through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.” (Romans 5:10)

Many within the Church have lost sight of this important truth, something evident by their passive lifestyle. We have become like the Dead Sea. It is dead because it has water flowing into it, but with no outlet. The water has become so salty, a human being can not even sink into it. Nothing lives in it, no one can penetrate it, just like a spiritually dead Church always stuck in the pew, taking in but never distributing unto those that are in need of the Living Water of Jesus Christ.

If the average church made as much noise about GOD on Monday and Thursday, as it makes to GOD on Sunday, we would be in constant revival and increasing regenerated souls unto the Kingdom of GOD not being able to contain them with the walls of our places of worship. Just like the seemingly uselessness of the Dead Sea, the Dead Sea contains very valuable minerals, which are waiting to be harvested. So does the modern Church. It is a field which is white unto harvest, both for souls and for laborers, but like the Dead Sea there seems to be no way out for the Word of GOD to prosper in the unwillingness of a body of so-called believers that are too lazy to move out of their comfort zone.

Perhaps much of the Church needs to consider dropping “Onward Christian Soldiers” also, replacing it with something more appropriate song, appealing to those pretending to be the children of GOD. Showing none of the attributes associated with one that has been given the commission to, “GO OUT” unto the whole world preaching and teaching this lost, dead world that we all have to live in until the return of our King:

Backward Christian Soldiers

Backward Christian Soldiers,
fleeing from the fight
With the Cross of Jesus,
nearly out of sight.

Christ our rightful master,
stands against the foe
But forward into battle,
we are loathe to go.

Like a mighty turtle,
moves the Church of God
Brothers we are treading,
where we have always trod.

Divided in the faith,
many encouraging grateful flattery
Having many doctrines,
stationary with not much charity.

Crowns and thorns may perish,
kingdoms rise and wane
But the Church of Jesus,
hidden does remain.

Gates of Hell should never,
rise against the Church to prevail
We have Christ’s own promise,
but think that it will fail.

Sit here all ye people,
join our useless throng
Blend with ours,
your voices in this feeble song.

Blessings, ease and comfort,
ask from Christ the King
With our modern thinking,
we live by grace not compelled to do a thing.

(Written by Bishop J.D. Sparks – 2013)

Are you on fire for God?
Can you say that you have witnessed to more than 52 people in the last 52 weeks?
Do we have a testimony that resounds, opportunities for Christ?
Is there a zeal to witness, burning in our bones?

It does not matter how much you pray, tithe, or even sacrifice, which are the basics of your Christian faith. If you are not sharing that faith, you are not fulfilling your commission to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ unto every creature throughout the world. Not sharing your faith is like unto the survivors of the Titanic, singing songs as you polish the brass in the lifeboat, when there is room for so many who are drowning around you.

While here is nothing wrong with polishing brass, you do not get your polishing rag out while people are drowning all around you instead of throwing them a life line. We are Commissioned Soldiers, Officers in the Military of GOD. True Christianity is not a pleasure-cruiser on its way to Heaven, although it is a Battleship fortified with the Whole Armor of GOD sailing the most powerful Battle Group, stationed at the very gates of Hell.

Us Against Them: Strange Bedfellows Suing

July 17, 2013 by Sam Rolley 

A lawsuit filed against the National Security Agency by a coalition of 19 organizations illustrates how some Federal policies violate American rights, regardless of demographics, political affiliation or personal beliefs.

The group, represented by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, includes a variety of organizations focused on everything from human rights abuses, gun rights and Islamic relations to the Unitarian church and marijuana reform advocates.


At the heart of the case, First Unitarian Church of Los Angeles v. NSA, is the NSA’s bulk telephone records collection confirmed by last month’s publication of an order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC).

“The First Amendment protects the freedom to associate and express political views as a group, but the NSA’s mass, untargeted collection of Americans’ phone records violates that right by giving the government a dramatically detailed picture into our associational ties,” said EFF Legal Director Cindy Cohn. “Who we call, how often we call them, and how long we speak shows the government what groups we belong to or associate with, which political issues concern us, and our religious affiliation. Exposing this information — especially in a massive, untargeted way over a long period of time — violates the Constitution and the basic First Amendment tests that have been in place for over 50 years.”

Just one of a series of FISC rulings allowing similarly unConstitutional data collection by the NSA, the spy effort at the center of the lawsuit permitted the NSA’s wholesale collection of every call made, the location of the phone, the time of the call, the duration of the call and other “identifying information” for every phone and call for all customers of Verizon for a period of three months.

EFF officials argue that the NSA is working to build a database not as a deterrent to terrorist activity, but rather as a means by which to quash all manner of dissident activity.

“People who hold controversial views — whether it’s about gun ownership policies, drug legalization, or immigration — often must express views as a group in order to act and advocate effectively,” said Cohn. “But fear of individual exposure when participating in political debates over high-stakes issues can dissuade people from taking part. That’s why the Supreme Court ruled in 1958 that membership lists of groups have strong First Amendment protection. Telephone records, especially complete records collected over many years, are even more invasive than membership lists, since they show casual or repeated inquiries as well as full membership.”

Officials at the First Unitarian Church of Los Angeles, the main plaintiff in the case, say that the church has a long history of fighting Federal attacks on free speech and that the controversial position the church sometimes takes on issues puts its members at risk of government persecution if the spying continues.

“The First Unitarian Church of Los Angeles has a proud history of working for justice and protecting people in jeopardy for expressing their political views,” said the Rev. Rick Hoyt. “In the 1950s, we resisted the McCarthy hysteria and supported blacklisted Hollywood writers and actors, and we fought California’s ‘loyalty oaths’ all the way to the Supreme Court. And in the 1980s, we gave sanctuary to refugees from civil wars in Central America. The principles of our faith often require our church to take bold stands on controversial issues. We joined this lawsuit to stop the illegal surveillance of our members and the people we serve. Our church members and our neighbors who come to us for help should not fear that their participation in the church might have consequences for themselves or their families. This spying makes people afraid to belong to our church community.”

The strange bedfellows joining forces in the complaint make certain that the American government and the Nation’s citizens are at odds.

Law & Disorder / Civilization & Discontents

Miami man plans to sue department over unauthorized deletion of his footage.

by Timothy B. Lee - Nov 8 2012, 8:00pm EST

Police Major Nancy Perez, moments before she arrested Miller on January 31, 2012.

A jury acquitted a Florida photojournalist who was arrested on January 31 while documenting the eviction of Occupy Miami protesters. The police accused Carlos Miller, author of a popular blog about the rights of photojournalists, of disobeying a lawful police order to clear the area. But another journalist testified he had been standing nearby without incident.

After Miller's January arrest, the police confiscated his camera and deleted some of his footage, including video documenting his encounter with the police. That may prove to be an expensive mistake. Miller was able to recover the footage, which proved helpful in winning his acquittal. He says his next step will be to file a lawsuit charging that the deletion of the footage violated his constitutional rights.

"I was questioning their orders. That's what I do"
The one-day trial occurred on Wednesday. In a Thursday interview, Miller told us that the prosecution accused him of "being antagonistic to police because I was questioning their orders." However, he said, "that's what I do. I know my rights. I know the law."

During the trial, Miller's attorney, Santiago Lavandera, admitted that Miller used some coarse language with the police officers at one point during the evening. But he stressed that it wasn't the job of a journalist to meekly obey police orders.

"When you’re a journalist, your job is to investigate," Lavandera told the jury. "Not to be led by your hand where the police want you to see, so they can hide what they don’t want you to see. As long as you are acting within the law, as Mr. Miller was, you have the right to demand and say, ‘no, I’m not moving, I have the right to be here. This is a public sidewalk, I have the right to be here.’"

Miller told us the jury deliberated for only about half an hour before returning a verdict of "not guilty." He said his case was helped by the footage he recovered from his camera. That footage, he told us, clearly showed that there were other journalists nearby when he was arrested.

One of them was Miami Herald reporter Glenn Garvin, who testified in Wednesday's trial. According to Miller, when Garvin saw Miller being arrested by Officer Nancy Perez, "he immediately thought he was going to get arrested, so he asked Nancy Perez if it was alright for him to be standing there and she said, yes, he was under no threat of getting arrested."

Enlarge / Perez is cross-examined by Miller attorney Arnold Trevilla.

There's a history of confrontations between Miller and the police, and Miller said the police had singled him out for that reason. An e-mail disclosed during the trial showed the police had been monitoring Miller's Facebook page and had sent out a notice warning officers in charge of evicting the Occupy Miami protestors that Miller was planning to cover the process.

Constitutional challenge

Now that Miller doesn't have a jail sentence hanging over his head, he's planning to turn the tables on the Miami-Dade Police Department. He plans to file a lawsuit arguing the deletion of his footage by the police violated his constitutional rights.

According to Miller, such incidents are disturbingly common around the country. As camera-equipped cell phones have proliferated, ordinary Americans have increasingly used the devices to document how police officers do their jobs. And he said he heard of numerous incidents in which the police confiscate these devices and delete potentially embarrassing footage.

Miller told us most victims don't stand up for their rights in court. In many cases, people are happy simply to have the police drop the charges against them. But Miller isn't so easily cowed.

If Miller files his lawsuit, he will join a handful of other plaintiffs who have gone to court to vindicate their rights to record the activities of police officers. Judges in Massachusetts and Illinois have held it unconstitutional to arrest people for recording the activities of police. A Baltimore man has sued the police for deleting his footage from his cell phone. The Obama administration filed a brief in the case arguing that deleting such footage violates the Fourth Amendment.

Miller points out that if an ordinary citizen deleted footage relevant to an alleged crime, he could be charged with destruction of evidence, a felony. He believes that police officers should also be held accountable when they seize cameras and delete footage.

Who is Barack Hussein Obama, or is it Barry Soetoro?

By Doug Hagmann (Bio and Archives)  Thursday, July 11, 2013
Comments | Print friendly | Subscribe | Email Us

With each passing day, it becomes more evident that the United States is a “captured operation,” and has been taken over from within. At the epicenter of the tyrannical takeover is none other than Barack Hussein Obama, a man also known as Barry Soetoro.

The terrifying yet largely unreported fact is that after two elections and nearly five years, we still do not know with certainty the legal name, true legal identity or status of the man holding the highest office in America.

Equally disturbing, and something that should concern everyone, is that anyone who continues to raise questions about Obama’s eligibility status or the authenticity of his long form birth certificate is either subjected to public ridicule or worse, threats to their safety.

This issue was again brought to the forefront last month when Mike Zullo, lead investigator for the Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse tasked with looking into the Obama eligibility matter, held a public update regarding the status of their investigation. Mr. Zullo publicly confirmed the facts contained in an exclusive report published on August 4, 2009, by me and Canada Free Press founding editor Judi McLeod, when we jointly disclosed that a national talk show host stated that he was threatened with his career, “or worse,” should he talk about the issue of Barack Hussein Obama’s birth records to a national audience.

About three minutes into his public investigative update, Mr. Zullo stated:

“I have been in contact with prominent media people, I cannot and will not disclose their identities that was the commitment I made. They fear for their jobs and some fear for their safety. There were threats made. There were people threatened with their occupations, losing their occupation if they continue this.”

According to Mr. Zullo, the corporate media is intentionally refusing to address this matter, which also includes the issue of a demonstrably fraudulent federal document, Barack Hussein Obama’s long form birth certificate, being published on the official White House website. Mr. Zullo stated that his interim report of investigation is currently about 325 pages long with another 80 pages to be added shortly. He expects the final investigative report to be somewhere about 700-800 pages long, and will also include matters pertaining to Obama’s selective service registration and social security number controversies.

Regarding the authenticity of the long form birth certificate posted on the White House website, detective Zullo described the document as “fatally flawed” and not a valid document at all. He stated that the identifying document purported by the White House to be a true copy of the original long form birth certificate is a manual creation by someone with planning and intent and contains proof of “human manipulation.” He also stated that the document “could not survive judicial scrutiny on any level,” adding that the creation or manipulation of a legal document is a felony.

The image posted on the White House website of Obama’s purported long form birth certificate was also examined by Reed Hayes, a highly credentialed certified document examiner. Mr. Hayes concluded: “In over 20 years of examining documentation of various types, I have never seen a document that is so seriously questionable in so many respects. In my opinion, the birth certificate is entirely fabricated.”

Threats and intimidation continue

It’s been nearly four years since we were the first to report that high profile media personalities were threatened with their careers as well as their “safety” should they persist in talking about the legal identity and eligibility of the man known as Barack Hussein Obama. We provided the documentation to Detective Zullo and the Cold Case Posse immediately upon its formation. We are aware that the threats continue even today to those in positions to expose the greatest hoax and gravest threat ever perpetrated on America.

Who is it that holds the most powerful position in America? What is the true, legal identity of the man who has “fundamentally changed” this country so much in such a short period of time, and is capable of changing it even more? Who is behind the face of power, and just who is setting the course of our country? These questions have yet to be satisfactorily answered. Soon, merely asking them will be made into a criminal act as our freedoms are continually eroded by a man whose identity remains in question.

As the silence and the media blackout of this matter continues, all three branches of our government appear to have been captured by an enemy from within. The corporate media is complicit in keeping the American public in the dark about the truth behind the identity of the most powerful man in the world.

It is clear that our elected officials have been compromised into silence, as well as our judiciary. We, however, will not be silenced, for it is the fate of our nation that is at stake. We must stand behind the investigative efforts of the Cold Case Posse, and continue to push for answers to the most troubling questions that have ever faced a nation.

We have never been, nor will we now be intimidated into silence.
