Privacy for Freedom
As I look around at the many friends and neighbors I’m surrounded with, I sometimes feel very much alone.
Once you have had a smell of death on your pallet your senses become num to the facts as presented to you. This takes verification on your part to get to the truth as you believe it to be. Let’s just look at the big picture national politics.
National Politics: As seen through the cameras of liberal media and the matching permission from any local government where the event is taking place.
American politics: Once again we have been force feed this crap through a media that has taken sides with the power house in control. Look at the news you see and verify it before passing judgment. How do we do this you ask, you must get your news source from multiple channels and cable as well. Look for leading questions during interviews, news clips that only present a beginning and don’t finish the whole story. Check the story base line and how it is presented on other channels. Watch for other details that weren’t divulged in the original broadcast. And best of all don’t get your basic news from talk show host.
Local News: By far local the news is presented by local people, people you see out every day and expect the truth and should demand it as well. Again check the local news against the big box news media reporting the same story. If you hear something that you know not to be the truth on the local channel, than it’s your responsibly to challenge the local station.
Privacy for Freedom: We as a nation have been lead to believe it’s normal to have Federal cops come into your house for any reason they deem fit. We also see on TV this type of behavior all the time. Now you have to ask yourself this one question, does it feel right? Local police and deputy sheriffs must have a warrant to enter your house unless they are in pursuit of a known suspect and see him or her enter it. It gets very touchy for any local law enforcement to enter someone’s house without their permission there has to be several elements in place first. I have said before that the local police act from state law which varies from state to state but usually respects individual rights.
Federal Law and Homeland Security: This is a duck of a different color I list an explanation of its order of business.
The United States Department of Homeland Security
In response to the September 11 attacks, President George W. Bush announced the establishment of the Office of Homeland Security (OHS) to coordinate "homeland security" efforts. The office was headed by former Pennsylvania GovernorTom Ridge, who assumed the title of Assistant to the President for Homeland Security. The official announcement stated:
The mission of the Office will be to develop and coordinate the implementation of a comprehensive national strategy to secure the United States from terrorist threats or attacks. The Office will coordinate the executive branch's efforts to detect, prepare for, prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks within the United States.
Ridge began his duties as OHS director on October 8, 2001.
The Department of Homeland Security was established on November 25, 2002, by the Homeland Security Act of 2002. It was intended to consolidate U.S. executive branch organizations related to "homeland security" into a single Cabinet agency. The following 22 agencies were incorporated into the new department:
In closing I would suggest you reframe from wearing a turban around your head, try a baseball cap it’s American. By far don’t be afraid to challenge the authority of anyone in a peacefully order through proper channels. We have by far the best law enforcement system in the world. Before you make a hasty decision investigate other countries and their laws. It’s great to be an American, but it’s not meant to be easy.
