In their caption Forbes labels this man a TSA Officer. I beg to differ. The people that work for the TSA DO NOT swear an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the US. That is why they are allowed to grope your genitals when a police officer or FBI Agent cannot. Nazi Germany is truly not far off! If you have any working relationship with your state amd local legislators please ask them to stand up to this outrageous overreach of an Executive Branch department (Homeland Security) gone wild!

The following was a disclaimer in small print at the bottom of the home page for UNC at Chapel Hill’s, Environmental Finance Center:
“The Environmental Finance Center is a program within the UNC School of Government. EFC receives funding from a variety of sources, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources.”
And you do not have to look far to find the S word either…”sustainable” they list the following as their mission:
“The UNC EFC is dedicated to enhancing the ability of governments to provide environmental programs and services in fair, effective and financially sustainable ways.
After years of tireless research they are finally prepared to float a new theory out there to local municipalities. Now bear in mind this is based on the latest research available and is arguably controversial. But the UNC Environmental Finance Center theorizes that: IF utilities charge higher prices for water, THEN their customers will use less. There i’ve said it. The cat is out of the bag, Pandora’s box has been opened, you can’t get the genie back in the bottle etc. etc. They call this theory: Conservation Oriented Rates. Gaspee Gazette will continue to read the The Environmental Finance Center’s 2009 report for all other groundbreaking, earth shattering theories about controlling… I mean managing, our water usage. Thanks to ICLEI’s southeast page for turning me on to this group. http://www.efc.unc.edu/publications/2009/2009_SWIC_FullReport.pdf

You may remember Gaspee Gazette covered this story previously when back in August the EPA denied a petition from The Center for Biological Diversity, and other environmental groups, for the EPA to institute a nationwide ban on lead based ammunition. You can read that post here: http://wp.me/p11aYW-4x. The EPA denied the ammunition part of the petition, saying it didn’t have authority to do so under the Toxic Substances Control Act.
I have heard Tera Servatious on WBT 1110 say before that we need to be praying for the arteries of Supreme Court Justices: Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito everyday. Because the ability to purchase or manufacture lead ammunition will soon be resting on these 4 men’s shoulders.
President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister will sign an agreement forming a “Perimeter” around North America
There is one sure way to solve the US debt crisis: Replace the Dollar with the Amero.
Source: National Post Dec 2010
“Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and President Obama will sign a deal next month that will form a “perimeter” around the North America that will allow people and goods to flow freely across the border.” http://www.nationalpost.com/news/canada/Conservatives+announce+border+security+%20%20deal+with/3947584/story.html
For several years Lou Dobbs, a CNN anchor, covered the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America. Known as the SPP it was a security and trade agreement between President Bush, Canada, and Mexico. You can get a good history of Mr. Dobb’s coverage of it here.
Supposedly the SPP is no longer being pursued, yet when you visit the URL it is still active. http://spp.gov
But when the URL opens it is entitled Commerce Connect, and claims to be under the US Department of Commerce. Certainly if ending US sovereignty is the goal one necessary step would be elimination of the Dollar. And isn’t saying you are forming a perimeter around the North American continent “so that people and goods can move around freely”, what does that mean for those little squiggly lines on the current map that we old timers would call the US borders?
Sen. Burr (RINO), NC Co-Sponsored and voted for this bill. NC isn’t it time for Sen. Burr to go?
“Spanning some 150 pages, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act would authorize the FDA to dictate how farmers grow fruits and vegetables, including rules governing soil, water, hygiene, packing, temperatures, and even what animals may roam which fields and when. It would also increase inspections of food “facilities” and tax them to do so. And, fulfilling the dream of a long line of agency officials, the bill grants the FDA unilateral authority to order recalls.”
In an email sent to the Shelby 912 Tea Party Sen. Debbie Clary gives a 2011 Session Priority List. I am very glad to hear our State representatives are working on Nullifying the Healthcare bill, but I was disappointed to see no mention of also nullifying the Food Safety Bill, or Cap and Trade.
From Sen. Clary: “It is a given that the balancing of a responsible state budget will take
priority when the General Assembly convenes in January. However, the
list of other priorities is presented below.
1. Pass the Healthcare Freedom Protection Act, exempting North
Carolinians from the job-killing, liberty-restricting mandates of the
federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
2. Protect jobs by keeping our Right to Work laws.
3. Reduce the regulatory burden on small business.
4. Fund education in the classroom, not the bureaucracy.
5. Eliminate the cap on charter schools.
6. Pass the Honest Election Act, requiring a valid photo ID to
7. Protect Personal Property Rights by passage of the Eminent
Domain constitutional amendment.
8. End pay-to-play politics and restore honesty and integrity to
Rep. Patrick McHenry (R) 10th District NC announced in September of 2009 that he had requested from Rep. Towns, current Chairman of the Government Oversight and Reform Committee to bring Obama’s federal appointees, (A.K.A. Czars) to testify before Congress. Rep. McHenry has repeatedly said that because of the Democrat control of the committee he was unable to accomplish this task. Now that the Republicans have a majority in the House, and Rep. Darrell Issa from CA is the incoming Chairman to the Government Oversight and Reform Committee, will McHenry be able to bring these controversial appointees to D.C.?
Issa has vowed to cause the current head of the EPA Lisa Jackson to have “her own parking spot” outside his building. Yet if the Bush Tax Cut extension negotiations that have turned into another stimulus package is any indication, the GOP already seems to be crumbling when it comes to living up to the mandate they said they were given by the American people in November.
Will Rep. McHenry get Mark Llyod the Diversity Czar to explain under oath why he thought Chavez taking over the media in Venezuela was a good thing?
Will he get the Healthcare Czar, Donald Berwick, to explain under oath why any just and equitable healtcare plan ”MUST re-distribute wealth”?
Or will he get Cas Sunstein, the Regulatory Czar, to answer under oath why he thinks hunting should be banned, and why he thinks the 2nd Amendment does NOT give citizen’s the right to own guns?
Or will he get John Holdren, the Science Czar, to testify about the beliefs he writes about in a textbook he co-authored called Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment. Statements like these:
“Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”
“ One way to carry out this disapproval might be to insist that all illegitimate babies be put up for adoption—especially those born to minors, who generally are not capable of caring properly for a child alone.”
“Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion…”
I do not believe I will hold my breath. But maybe I will be pleasantly surprised.

BREAKING: Ron Paul to Chair House Sub-Committee On Domestic Monetary Policy – Paul Calls It Official!
Bernanke Beware! Impeach him Mr Paul!
Not that it will do any good, but call your Senators to tell them to Vote “NO” on Cloture for H.R. 3082 and Oppose the “FDA Food Safety Modernization Act” (Division D of H.R. 3082)
The lame ducks are moving fast in the House.
From Farm-To-Consumer Legal Defense Fund:
“By a 212-206 vote on December 8, the House passed the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (formerly S.510) as an amendment to H.R. 3082 (the “Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011″ to fund the government through September 2011). House Democrats attached what was S.510 (as passed by the Senate on November 30) to H.R. 3082 because they were worried about Republican opposition to it as a stand alone bill.”
Burr a Republican RINO from NC was a cosponsor of s510, and is in so deep with big agribusiness he is not likely to care about what the majority of his constituents think.
Nancy Piscatello with NY Healthy Food Advisor writes:
“Small farmers, like raw milk dairies, will be the victims. The language that was changed in the bill, from “credible evidence or information indicating” to “reason to believe“, could have significant impact for those farmers that the FDA “believes” are producing any food they do not deem “safe”. With the record of FDA armed raids on raw milk farms, this bill leaves little to the imagination on where things may progress. Small farms, food co ops, farmers markets, and supplement companies are all in line for harassment, or being put out of business, due to “belief” and control.”
In a nutshell this bill will put the control of our countries food supply into the hands of big agri-business, and therefore, the government.
