# 140 Talker on America and The Power of Broken Promises.
Maybe age is creeping up on me or could be all in my imagination.
Do believe I heard the promises made by our new president, that many policies instituted by the prior administration, were unfair, unjust and oppressive, AND WOULD BE ELIMINATED, if he were elected. Well he was elected, and he had numerous opportunities to keep his promises. Yet when push came to shove, and presented with the opportunity to change or eliminate those oppressive things, he decided they were things of power, and ‘lets just keep them’. We were lied to, and deceived America, into believing the campaign promises, led by BIG money, and a controlled press.
No I’m not paranoid America, you or some one you know, is experiencing the rape of America and its prior liberties. There is yet, more to come, of force applied at gunpoint, minus the no longer applied common sense of clear thinkers, that had set America on a path toward freedom.
Would Ayn Rand be saying “Atlas Shrugged, in the making”!
“The Fourth of July is a memorial to the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. The text of the document, which was largely composed by Thomas Jefferson, was agreed upon by the Congress on 4 July 1776, and sent to the printers to make a formal copy. It is sometimes referred to as a celebration of the signing of the document by the Congress members, but this did not take place until nearly a month later.
The Declaration of Independence is of tremendous importance to American history, as it outlines the reasons for their secession and outlines the famous American goals of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” The original document resides in the National Archives Rotunda in Washington, DC. The eloquence and earnest feeling of the wording and the results it brought leads many experts to call it one of the greatest statements in the history of modern civilization. “
So the stage is set. America will see martial law and the horrors of internal conflict, unless common sense and values of true American thinking, once again becomes the standard.
So here now, and until even the little remaining aspects of ‘freedom of speech’, is wiped out, you have my take on what’s happening around America.
Modern threats to American liberty

Cash, currency and coins, is a store of value. In the US, “legal tender for all debts, public and private.” Carry too much of it though and you are marked for suspicion (per the Wall Street Journal]:
Steven Bierfeldt, treasurer for the Campaign for Liberty, a political organization launched from Ron Paul’s presidential run, was detained at the St. Louis airport because he was carrying $4,700 in a lock box. . . . TSA screeners quizzed him about the cash, . . . then summoned local police and threatened him with arrest because he responded to their questions with a question of his own: What were his rights and could TSA legally require him to answer?
How about former Senator Bob Dole who habitually carried a wad of $100 bills? When federal regulators spotted his large cash withdrawals his bank filed “suspicious activity reports” questioning whether he might have violated federal laws against money laundering.
Multi-millionaire New York Governor Elliot Spitzer’s large cash withdrawals led a shadowy anti-corruption unit to his use of a prostitute – and to his resignation. As if a multi-millionaire is a likely candidate for money-laundering or bribery – but he did anger a lot of bankers. Hmm-m.
As money launderers see automated cash-tracking programs follow ever smaller sums, they open more accounts and make even smaller cash transactions. Which brings the breath of suspicion closer to all of us.
Where does it stop?
Not legal tender
Oh, and you know those lines about “legal tender for all debts, public and private” on our currency? Scratch that.
The Denver-area E-470 toll road is going entirely cashless – requiring drivers to use transponders – or pay higher fees when a bill arrives in the mail. That follows the Dallas-area President George Bush Turnpike’s earlier abandonment of a cash lane.
Another thought: divorce lawyers and others are accessing electronic toll road records. It isn’t just the Internet where you have no privacy.
California has anonymous FasTrak accounts. Top it up with cash – oops! you’re toast, buddy! – and away you go.
The Storage Bits take
As we enjoy this 4th of July, where Tom Jefferson once lauded those “. . . for opposing with manly firmness. . . .” invasions on the right of the people, let us remember that many Americans would not sign a petition with the text of the Bill of Rights. Too radical.
Your laptop can be seized for no reason when entering the US and its contents freely searched for – well, anything. Just as carrying a large amount of cash is now suspicious, a 64 GB thumb drive could soon make you a suspect.
Social totalitarians want to control our bodies and our lives, invading doctor’s offices, churches, ATMs and toll booths. Cheap massive storage makes it possible. Only patriotic Americans – liberal and conservative – insisting on their rights stand in the way.
It would be nice if social totalitarians on the Supreme Court would take to heart the original intent of the 9th Amendment:
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by corporations the people.
In the meantime, for Steven Bierfeldt, who resisted the TSA’s illegal questioning, and the ACLU and others who defended him, 3 cheers.
Courteous comments welcome, of course.

When reading and hearing news like those shown below, do you still doubt that martial law will soon take place in these United States of America!
Dr. Jim Garrow, a renowned author and humanitarian, made the shocking claim on his Facebook page, yesterday.
I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.” Those who will not are being removed.

EMERGENCY: Civil War Fast Approaching in U.S. Part of channel(s): Yoursay (promoted)
This is an emergency broadcast to the American people. As a result of President Barack Obama’s executive orders on gun control and the consequences of economic collapse in Europe and the United States, Civil War is fast approaching in America. The Department of Homeland Security plans to buy another 360,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition in addition to the over 2 billion already purchased according to Forbes.com and numerous other alternative media websites. In addition to a massive purchase of ammunition, hundreds of DHS armed trucks are suspected to be on the move in states like Arizona. Why is the federal government arming up in record numbers while at the same time attempting to disarm the American people?
