Justice Department Fights Release of Secret Court Opinion Finding Unconstitutional Surveillance

Obama Big Brother TheaterAgain, the Obama Administration — which “promised” to be the most transparent in history — is proving itself the complete opposite: the most OPAQUE in history and the most strident in keeping information from the electorate.

From MotherJones (Of all places!):

Government lawyers are trying to keep buried a classified court finding that a domestic spying program went too far.

In the midst of revelations that the government has conducted extensive top-secret surveillance operations to collect domestic phone records and internet communications, the Justice Department was due to file a court motion Friday in its effort to keep secret an 86-page court opinion that determined that the government had violated the spirit of federal surveillance laws and engaged in unconstitutional spying.

The violations and abrogations of our Constitution and Bill of Rights go on and on and on, one abortion after the other, and still you have to dig and scrape and pry and unearth to discover what’s going on in your very own back yard, your very own country!

AMM - American Media Maggots 1Further, the American Media Maggots, like thousands of domestic cats, do their very best to paw the sand over the daily piles of steaming shit created and served up by Mr Obama in DC.  They’re happy to do it.  Overjoyed.

Then they become packed and bristling with umbrage and scarlet outrage when the obvious is pointed out: their mouths and faces are coated with years of old and cracked DC shit along with the fresh strands of fecal materials dripping from their very teeth.

Never before have I seen an American press so willing to become such abject coprophages for Washington DC.  It is beyond disgusting.  And never have I been so disillusioned by the American electorate for installing this pseudo-black American Destroyer not once, but twice — mostly because they want more Free Cheese.

This is detestable.  Beyond shameless.  I lack further abominable words at this point.

I say — and this administration proves me correct — that if you thought the political damage stemming from Washington is bad, just wait another week.

It gets worse.

Keep pushing, Mr Obama.  I don’t think America will like what’s just over the horizon.

Gird thy loins, America.  Be prepared.




Black Friday: a day to decompress

Yes, I am at work.

No, I am not shopping.  Nor queuing up in line for alleged “bargains.”

In Sacramento, where I work, the local early morning news shows are indicating a rather dismal response to Black Friday.  No real crowds.  This may not bode well.

Today is tryptophan-recovery day, also.  For me, lamb-recovery.

Do well; be safe.  More politics later.




Rich businessmen pulling out of France as tax-hit looms

From France24.com:

AFP – A flood of top-end properties are hitting the market as businessmen seek to leave France before stiff tax hikes hit, real estate agents and financial advisors say.

“It’s nearly a general panic. Some 400 to 500 residences worth more than one million euros ($1.3 million) have come onto the Paris market,” said managers at Daniel Feau, a real-estate broker that specialises in high-end property.

While it is not yet on the scale of the exodus of rich French after the election of Socialist president Francois Mitterrand in 1981, real estate agents said, the tax plans of France’s new Socialist President Francois Hollande are having a noticeable effect.

While the Socialists’ plan to raise the tax rate to 75 percent on income above 1.0 million euros per year has generated the most headlines, a sharp increase in taxes on capital gains from the sales of stock and company stakes is pushing most people to leave, according Didier Bugeon, head of the wealth manager Equance.

No surprise there.

What you can expect in Obama’s second term.

Both Hollande and Obama believe it is the duty of businesses and business owners to lose money in order to ensure some kind of mentally-deficient “parity” with all.  Profits still continue to = “bad.”

If you really want businesses to pull out and land in some other nation yielding some kind of modern-day “Atlas Shrugged,” then keep on pushing, Socialists.  You won’t be far from your wishes.  For when you throttle the motor of business you also halt the motor of freedom.
