Big Brother

Guess I’ll be turning down that killer IT job at the Defense Department.

The Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency warned its employees and contractors last week to stop using their government computers to surf the Internet for pornographic sites, according to the agency’s executive director.

 

In a one-page memo, Executive Director John James Jr. wrote that in recent months government employees and contractors were detected “engaging in inappropriate use of the MDA network.”

 

“These actions are not only unprofessional, they reflect time taken away from designated duties, are in clear violation of federal and DoD and regulations, consume network resources and can compromise the security of the network though the introduction of malware or malicious code,” he wrote.“Specifically, there have been instances of employees and contractors accessing websites, or transmitting messages, containing pornographic or sexually explicit images,” James wrote in the July 27 memo obtained by Bloomberg News.

 

In the world of Big Brother concepts like CyberSpying on individuals and such, hasn’t the government learned to secure their own computer networks from porn sites?

Hell, even my workplace has installed security measures to keep employees from visiting sites such as ebay and craigslist, not to mention actual porn sites, not that I have the inclination to visit any.

Now that I think on it, has the Obama administration reassigned some of their recently disgraced Secret Service Agents to the DOD? Inquiring minds want to know!

Remember the Socia.List?  That menagerie of miscreants comprising the 1000 State Legislators who signed the PSN letter urging passage of Obamacare? Don’t think for a minute they’ve been eradicated. In fact, they’ve recruited quite a few more to their ranks. See, these new recruits recently signed on to be surrogates for Captain Apology under the guise of…

“The Texas Truth Team”

Inspires confidence, doesn’t it? I guess maybe it could, if one ignored the party affiliation and the fact they are propaganda ministers for Dear Leader.

Hey. Guys. Seriously. Next time you decided to form a new band, for heaven’s sake call me for some name suggestions.

Here’s a few off the top of my tin-clad head:

Social Justice League

Reparation Station

The Projectors

Tools of the Tirade

Death Cab for Baby

Marxed-Out

The Keystone Keynesians

Foetus Non Esse

No Borders

Of course, you’re encouraged to add your own suggestions in the comments.

As an example of the dangerously misguided, wacked-out messianic complex the Dem’s have for their chosen one, I offer their own national Truth Team logo, spotted by Glenn Beck’s personal truth team, who astutely point out:

Usually a capitalized ‘He’ or ‘His’ would be reserved for 1) the first word of a sentence or 2) God so what is Obama saying…?

So, just for fun, what say we pay a visit to the Texas leader of these truth-telling vestiges of virtue, shall we?

Texas Democrat Party Chairman, Boyd Richie:

Mr. Richie recently announced his decision not to seek another term as TDP  chair in order to run for another office, or something. While making that announcement, Richie had no qualms issuing a few histrionic comments disparaging those with opposing viewpoints and encouraging his fellow lemmings to unite…

“…because a Republican political agenda that threatens to shut down government, schools and nursing homes is one that has turned its back on the people.”

Interesting wording, Mr. Richie. except for the fact that it’s hyperbole, innuendo and lies.

With all due respect sir, you’re a shameless demagogue and thus, accurately represent the rest of your party.

Leadership, indeed.

I submit that your statement does however, accurately describe the Democrat party and the Obama regime’s record.

Can you say projection? Sure you can.

It is the democrats who had control of both houses for the first two years of the Obama regime and it is with them that any blame lies for not passing a budget for the past three years. Three more “historic” firsts for those of you at home keeping score.

It was also the democrats who threatened to shut down government, withholding of Social Security checks, withholding of pay from active service troops, cutting healthcare services to veterans, cutting healthcare funds, and more. And they do so out of fear mongering.

The tools of tyrants and dictators throughout history is writ large in the democrat playbook and wielded against the people who’s rights they claim to protect, enslaving us all to exorbitant debt while the party panders ever more to their cronys, barely challenged by the sycophantic media.

Like Obama, Pelosi and Reid, these truth team surrogates must go. If for nothing but the fact they’ve turned the definition of truth on it’s head. They’ve jumped aboard yet another demagogue wagon instead of engaging in meaningful discussion about the constitutional restoration that Texas and America so desperately need.

The members of our merry band of misfits is as follows. Those with an asterisk are included on the Socia.list page. The 11 others are awarded spots on that list as well.

Don’t you think with Obama’s economy, those new job seekers are going to need all the help they can get? Aren’t there more important issues for a federal judge to be concerned with?

Apparently not.

Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery’s order against the Medina Valley Independent School District also forbids students from using specific religious words including “prayer” and “amen.”

Peter Morrison is fired up about it in his latest report:

Just last week, a federal tyrant threatened the Texas Senate with grounding all flights in Texas if the anti-groping bill was passed. Yesterday another federal tyrant, an unelected appointed-for-life federal judge named Fred Biery, banned any and all prayer at the Medina Valley ISD graduation ceremonies.

He went as far as to order students and administration that they could not use words like “prayer,” or “bow their heads,” or “amen” upon penalty of jail time for contempt of court.

Folks, it doesn’t get any more outrageous than this. There’s only one real solution: civil disobedience by students at the Medina Valley ISD graduation, followed by interposition and nullification of the judge’s order by the governor. The sovereign state should interpose itself between the tyrant and its citizens to prevent abuses of the Constitution, and nullify this judge’s unconstitutional order. It’s the only solution that preserves the students’ rights in time for their graduation.

Rick Perry talks a good talk about protecting state’s rights. This is where the rubber meets the road. Governor Perry should order state troopers and other law enforcement personnel to protect the administration and students of Medina Valley ISD from arrest. Furthermore, this federal judge ought to be tried for unlawful assaults and threats. If I illegally threatened to kidnap and jail someone for praying in public, that would be a crime, and it’s the same crime even if it’s done by an unelected tyrant in a black robe.

Take action:

Please send a fax to Governor Perry asking him to use every resource of the state to protect these students’ civil rights:

You know, last time I checked, the First Amendment provides us with freedom of religion, to worship in the manner of our choosing, not freedom from religion. No one in the graduation audience will be forced to pray. I promise. If you don’t want to, then don’t. Go get a beverage or a souvenir. Or you could just stand there and politely keep your yap shut for a moment. The Muslim terrorists in Gitmo have more religious freedom than those on the left would allow our students.

They don’t hate any God. The left hates the Christian God.

Time for Life Lock?

According to Texas State Comptroller Susan Combs, the data wasn’t exposed by a hacker or a group of vigilante scriptkiddies—it ended up on a state-controlled public server after having been passed around between various state agencies. The data came from the Teacher Retirement System of Texas, the Texas Workforce Commission, and the Employees Retirement System of Texas, all of whom transferred the unencrypted data (against state policy) between January and May of 2010. The information was only discovered on the public server on March 31, 2011, meaning it has been available for almost a year.

Really? A YEAR?

*Whew*

That was close. Glad they jumped right on it.

I thought the gubment storing all that personal data was supposed to be a good thing. I guess if your a malcontent and you know where to look, it is.

Stay secretive, my friends.

… I jotted down as possibilities for posts one morning this week while listening to the radio. Yea, amazing how much the government throws at us, all at once. It’s quite literally impossible for one person to keep up. I didn’t get around to any of them due to a heavy workload, but that doesn’t mean the issues aren’t worthy of your attention or scrutiney.

NATION:

Isn’t it time we ceased all government funding of “art?”

Wikileaks – I call this a major distraction. I know, its big, but think of this, if they are using the latest leak as a distraction, something this huge, just what do they want to distract us from?

No one person has done more to jeopardize American lives and make the American people unsafe than President Obama. ~ Pamela Geller

Child Nutrition Billsupposedly defeated, I won’t believe it til I see the bloody stake. It lives! Adrienne has the humor.

Food Bill S510 – Are you ready for the FDA in your backyard garden? Big Brother’s itching to put his green thumb on your neck.

Gulf drilling ban extended to 7 years while foreign nations drill in same waters – further proof of Obama’s hatred for business and red states.

Abortion on military basesIs that really necessary?

DREAM ACT – I’m still for deporting all illegal immigrants and securing the border. However, here’s another sober take on the issue.

TEXAS:

New “Buzzed Driving” Bill, lowers the legal limit of alcohol to .05%. – Why not just close every beer joint, pub and bar and bring back prohibition? Which is what this bill would effectively do. These girls are definitely against it.

Houston – Cameras cameras cameras. First the Red Light Cameras and Houston City Hall’s refusal to honor the will of the people, now the city is set to install police surveillance cameras all over the city. Can you scream Big Brother loud or often enough?

More thought provoking stuff at MCT.

I posted a link yesterday urging people to call their Senators to support an amendment to the new FDA expansion being crammed through the lame duck congress at the moment. Whilst I’m waxing wishful, how’s about instead of modifying that POS legislation, we urge them to scrap it completely. I think we’ve seen what the current power hungry mongrels infesting the House and Senate are capable of. I don’t think I want any more of the like, thank you very much. No.

I know. Fat chance.

On the same lame subject, this morning’s Heritage Foundation Morning Bell cites some disturbing numbers which, combined with the recent Wall Street legislation, ObamaCare, QE2, Bailouts and reckless spending by the Democraps amount to nothing more than a Cloward/Piven-Alinski-Obama Trifecta of assault on our way of life.

So just how big an expansion of government does Dingell, Pelosi, and Reid want to inflict on the American people to combat a non-existent food safety crisis? Well, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the legislation would require 50,000 domestic and foreign inspections in 2015, compared to just 7,400 in 2009. That is a sevenfold increase in government inspections. And the government would be reaching into a lot of new places as well. The act requires that all food “facilities”—including those home-based businesses that make jam, bread, and cheese for local markets—would be required to undertake periodic hazard analyses and produce “risk-based preventive controls.”

‘bot – Personally, I really would like to see these guys sit on their hands and do nothing for the remainder of their terms.

H/T Doug Ross

Bill Zwerger, posting at The Lonely Conservative has more on the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, otherwise known as the bend over and grab your ankles one more time please. This won’t hurt a bit. We’re just combating another manufactured crisis here. No need to worry yourself at all. POS Legislation # Umpteen Hundred of of 2010.

Mr. Grigsby knew them all too well.

UPDATE: The CL reminds us of a post from a year and a half ago.

It’s easy to brush stuff like this off, especially with so much going on these days, but please don’t. This is serious.

Freedom really is, the single most important issue of our time.

It’s insane what’s going on in America today. Scary. Find your inner-Jefferson folks, it’s liberty or tyranny. The choice is yours.

UPDATE II: The Other McCain lists the other items on the Democrat agenda for the Lame Duck session. Anyone remember the attention they paid to us as we demanded their ear on health care reform? Yea. More of the same. “Ram it through!” is the rally cry of the Lame.

Right Change/Politizoid is out with their latest outstanding video.

Here’s the set up:

Based on Apple’s 1984 MAC commercial that marked a new era in computers, and based on the George Orwell book 1984, RightChange introduces our closing argument on the Obama Administration and the 111th Congress for the 2010 Midterm Cycle. This is also the Kick-off for the 2012 Presidential Cycle for RightChange. The New Politizoid “1984 – Big Brother” may be our best yet! “Vote Different.”

Cast: Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, George Soros, Maxine Waters, Moveon.org and Louis Farrakhan in their own words. Yes. These are their actual words.

For previous Right Change videos, a good start would be No Sheeples Here.

Here’s a Halloween story for you. The judicial system in Texas has been breeding…

Wait for it…

Vampires!

I’m speaking of the recent development that Texas has adopted a policy of no-refusal every weekend, meaning that you are subject to forced blood test if an officer deems you intoxicated and you refuse a breathalyzer.

This is the ultimate intrusion into personal space and private property that has ever occurred. For refusing a breathalyzer, a needle will forcibly penetrate your skin, which has now become the ultimate line of demarcation between you and The State.

Subjects, your overlords demand that you give involuntary testimony in the form of a blood sample. It’s the ultimate truth serum! Except that it can be manipulated. Who trusts their government anymore? Do they really need this much control? Really? Without proof of a crime being committed a person is to be forced to testify, against his will, against himself! Before even a lawyer can be called? What happened to the Fifth Amendment? Fourth Amendment?

Do you feel like cattle yet?

Not boo, but moo.

The ACLU of Texas in 2009, had this to say:

The ACLU of Texas sees the Austin program as part of a disturbing trend occurring all over the state: Law enforcement use of search warrants to obtain blood from drunken driving suspects.  The Austin Police Department recently announced the first “no refusal” weekend as a pilot program which APD plans to repeat on other holiday weekends such as New Year’s Eve.

“Utilizing officers’ time to transport and force Texas drivers who refuse a Breathalyzer test to get their blood drawn isn’t good use of police resources,” said Russell. “Moreover, it does little to help build the much-needed trust between APD and the community because inevitably there will be stories of physical abuse with implementation of this program,” Russell added.

Police have said the program will work this way: Motorists who fail field sobriety tests will be arrested and taken to a mobile unit equipped to give Breathalyzer exams. If suspects refuse, they will be taken to Travis County Jail where a magistrate will be on duty to issue a warrant for blood tests, administered by force if necessary.

Chemical tests don’t lie, after all [sarc]. The problem is, they can be manipulated, as we’ve seen many times such as in the recent Houston crime lab fiasco, in San Francisco, Detroit, and most recently in North Carolina. to name just a few.

Given these abuses of power, how can we give them more? Do any of us actually think they need more power? Why should they have more cameras, more Matrix? More! More! More! our government screams they  need tools to protect us from ourselves.

Enough, I say. Enough!

If the State is that worried about stopping crime, control the freaking border! Oh, but wait. There’s no money in that, is there? Instead we have a racket of insurance and courts and lawyers with the MADD mothers being useful tools in the erosion of our rights. After all, who isn’t against drunk driving? If you protest the intrusion of the state you must be a law breaker or a kook!

We have met the enemy and it is a Vampire Government unrestrained by the people who gave it power.

Where is my wooden stake?
