Comey firing justly knocks FBI off its pedestal

James Bovard, Opinion columnist 3:18 a.m. ET May 11, 2017

It’s a historically untrustworthy secret organization that needs to live under rule of law.

President Trump’s firing of FBI chief James Comey provides a welcome chance to dethrone the FBI from its pinnacle in American politics and life. Last September, Comey denounced Twitter “demagoguery” for the widespread belief that the FBI was not “honest” or “competent.”

But the FBI has a long record of both deceit and incompetence. Five years ago, Americans learned that the FBI was teaching its agents that the bureau “has the ability to bend or suspend the law to impinge on the freedom of others.” This has practically been the FBI’s motif since its creation.

How the Government Predicts The Future – Inside the “Sentient World Simulation”

Have you ever watched the TV show “Person Of Interest”? It started in 2011 and ran until 2016. The premise of the show was that the government had a massive computer and corresponding database that kept track of every individual in the United States. It also predicted tragic events that a small group of heroes that tries to correct those tragic events.

James Corbett in his July 4, 2012 “Eye Opener Report” describes a real government computer, sans the heroes. Of course that was back in 2012, who knows the advancements they have made in invading the publics privacy over these last 5 years. If you are unaware of the massive government surveillance that is being done or would like to know more listen to his report.

Liberty on Tap: Decentralize

I’m surrounded by people who are working around the system. Individuals are rendering the state unnecessary. They are building community, peacefully interacting with others from all walks of life and decentralizing. The state has duped many of us into thinking there is no other way but its way. The state has been diabolical in programming […]

Tulsa R3’s – Ron Paul Revolution

Kaye Beach, Oklahoma’s resident expert on biometric ID, will be our guest speaker this month. She will explain what biometric ID is, where it is being used now, and bring us up to speed on the latest efforts of the State to obtain our most personal information and why we should pay attention to this issue. You might be surprised where and how your biometric data is being obtained and used!

“Biometric data, especially facial biometrics, is extremely sensitive information that can be used to accomplish a great deal of surveillance and control over our personal affairs. It is important that we know what it is, who has it and how it is being used.”

Congressman Jim Bridenstine Condemns Executive Overreach into School Bathrooms

Congressman Jim Bridenstine stated, “We must stand against President Obama’s aggressive attempts to fundamentally transform America.  Congress must use the ‘power of the purse’ to combat this executive overreach.  Parents and schools should assert their rights to govern themselves and not submit to Obama’s lawless federal bullying.”

Congressman Bridenstine is joining Members of Congress in a letter to the President condemning his recent directive about gender identity and school bathrooms.

ICYM Andrew Napolitano on Natural Rights (via Mises Circle)

Video with Judge Andrew P. Napolitano recorded at the Mises Circle in Costa Mesa, California, 8 November 2014. This seminar examined the institutions of a stateless society and explored topics such as private defense, private police, privately produced money, the role of markets, and how stateless legal systems would work. This particular video in the series is about 22 minutes long and has over 47k viewers at time of posting.

Video shows Judge Napolitano at his best on natural rights. He stresses that you cannot take away natural rights with legislation even if you try because they do not come from government at all. He gives an interesting brief history lesson and then apples the concept to where we are today. He ends with a huge challenge to this generation and the next in a powerful prediction. Please take time to watch this. I promise you will be glad you did. Even if you already know these things, it will help you articulate the ideas to others and we all must do that!

Governor Vetoes HB3016 -- Recommending a Full Court Press to Override!

We are shocked and disappointed (to say the least) that HB 3016 has been vetoed by Governor Mary Fallin. This should be a wake up call to every Oklahoman that the state does NOT want you to know what is in your child’s vaccines.

Oklahomans for Vaccine and Health Choice joins thousands of parents in asking, “why”?

This is not over! It’s just beginning. Parents will not be censored. Parents call the shots and deserve full, informed consent. Become an official member here: www.ok4vaxchoice.com

We’ve done great things! It’s not over! Details to come next week on an override option!

Are you all up for it? More work at the Capitol, more education..heck yeah! I’m in!

Read more and see the incredible double-speak veto from the governor saying she supports it but is vetoing it and we already have it thanks to the feds (which is actually why we need it). Wow just wow I am to angry to comment. Read it for yourself… Source post via OKGrassroots
