“A Party member lives from birth to death under the eye of the Thought Police. Even when he is alone he can never be sure that he is alone. Wherever he may be, asleep or awake, working or resting, in his bath or in bed, he can be inspected without warning and without knowing that he is being inspected.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“”You’re a traitor!” yelled the boy. “You’re a thought criminal!””…George Orwell, “1984″

“An ominous new development within the HJ was the appearance of HJ-Streifendienst (Patrol Force) units functioning as internal political police, maintaining order at meetings, ferreting out disloyal members, and denouncing anyone who criticized Hitler or Nazism including, in a few cases, their own parents.” …

“New York Paying $500 For Snitches To Report Illegal Gun Owners”

I told you yesterday that Governor Andrew Cuomo was having to reevaluate his unconstitutional gun legislation called the SAFE Act. Well now this same tyrant is offering tax payer money for snitches in New York to tell on their fellow citizens that have firearms that are considered illegal under his new gun law.

Back in February of 2012, before the SAFE Act was passed, Cuomo indicated that one of the four pronged initiatives he was putting forth was a program to offer a cash reward (that’s tax payer money) for citizens who become turncoats and out their neighbors to police so that they can confiscate their firearms, which are supposed to be protected under the Constitution.

A “Gun Tip Line” has been set up so that New Yorkers can call a toll free hotline (obviously paid for with tax payer dollars as well) and snitch on people without any evidence that they have an illegal firearm. It’s sort of like Child Protective Services for Firearms. No evidence is needed, just an anonymous tip.

If an arrest is made, the anonymous tipster would get $500.

“This initiative seeks to turn neighbor against neighbor and use their own tax dollars to pay for the $500 reward,” said Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R-Melrose).”

“While New Yorkers are pushing for repeal of the tyrannical gun law, Colorado is going ahead with its legislation and sheriffs have made it known that those laws will not be enforced. This leads me to be cautious and, as a result, ask if laws are left in place, what is to keep a new generation from enforcing them? The reality is that is a strong possibility and that is why they need to be repealed, not just ignored. Pratt said that was a hope of his organization and that would largely happen by the public issuing “pink slips” to those in office when there are new elections.”

  5. Garabandal Prophecies: The Warning

    First, a World-Wide Warning that will happen in the sky…like the collision of two stars that do not fall down… it will frighten all humanity regardless of where one happens to be at the time… it will be a thousand times worse than earthquakes… like a fire that will not burn our flesh … it will last a very short time, although to us it will seem to be a very long time … no one can prevent it from happening … It will be recognized as coming from God… it will resemble a punishment … it is meant to be a purification … like the revelation of our sins and what we will feel in our hearts will be worse than sorrow. It will not kill us, if we die it will be caused by the emotion within us. The date was not revealed only that it will happen before the announcement of the miracle.
    This is only an abbreviated version of the prophecy. To view the entire account of the events of Garabandal see the Garabandal Story.

    From our archives:

    The mystery of Akita, Japan

    by Michael H. Brown

    Years ago, back in 1993, Howard Q. Dee, who had been the ambassador from the Philippines to the Vatican, told me something that startled me. The ambassador related that during a visit to Rome in 1990, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the prefect of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, had told him that the message from a little-known site of miracles in Akita, Japan, was similar to the third secret from Fatima, which Ratzinger had read, one of the very few who had seen the secret before its dramatic recent release.

    What did Akita have to do with it? Akita is where a nun named Sister Sasagawa recorded a message from the Virgin Mary in association with a wooden statue of the Madonna that miraculoously “wept” on at least 101 occasions, a phenomenon that was put to the scientific test and authenticated by the diocese (the tears were found to be human). “The fact that Our Lady shed tears is undeniable,” the bishop of Niigata, Francis Keiichi Sato, who oversees Akita, wrote me in a fax. “It is something that occurred over and over between 1975 and 1981, with a great number of eyewitnesses.”

    That meant there was partial and tentative Church approval of Akita. The tears were deemed a miracle. There was no similar authentication, however, of the message — at least not publicly — but like Fatima it was a prophecy and it was given to Sister Sasagawa on October 13, 1973 — anniversary of the Famous sun miracle at Fatima.

    “My dear daughter, listen well to what I have to say to you,” Mary allegedly told the Japanese nun. “You will inform your superior. As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms that will remain for you will be the Rosary and Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the pope, the
    bishops, and the priests.”

    Bloomberg: Government Taking Away Citizens’ Privacy Inevitable

  8. Homeland Security readying for this?:

    Behind the scenes, the Obama administration is waiting for the European Union to collapse; waiting for the U.S. stock market to crash; and, like a vulture waiting for his prey to die, waiting for the U.S. economy itself to collapse.

    I think they could also be expecting a revolt when Ocare hits the fan.

  9. …….and now we have the Pioneer Valley School of the Performing Arts,in South Hadley Mass. teaching their 7-12 graders that Mary (mother of God)was a Lesbian. Since NONE of those BASTARDS existed then ,or even have any knowledge as such tells the exact level of the sick,twisted mentality of the teaching staff at that school. You can read the rest of the story at WND. (Drew Zahn).

  10. Observer,

    Perhaps thats an additional reason for the DHS purchasing so much ammunition as well. Or some combination thereof.

  11. Everybody had better start saving to pay the Healthcare cost increases which is coming. If you still have a provider,you can look for cost increases as high as 50% to some people. It depends largely on where you are geographically,and what sort of coverage you already hold. If you are paying $150.00 now you could see a $75.00 increase in your premiums which would put you at $225.00 per month. (hypothesis). Ain’t it nice paying for some SCUM BAGS HEALTHCARE? Hope all the DO GOODER LIBERALS enjoy making the extra contribution. They can thank their SLIMEY IDOL at the WH. He insists on covering another 15,000,000 people FREE, and guess who gets to pay the fiddler.

  12. Watching the news and somewhat surprised.

    Pertaining to the Government Health police, I remember well when smoking was being attacked by the politicians and they gained momentum by getting a buy-in from non-smokers to tax them at higher rates, force them to pay higher premiums for insurance, restrict private businesses from allowing smokers in their place of business, and more. For those old enough to remember, it all started with federal laws restricting smoking in Commercial Airplanes, since they fly over State lines claimed its authority under Federal commerce clause. Also promised they [Feds] would never extend further than that. We all know where that led.

    Smokers at that time warned other citizens that if they support such government notion, eventually they will even come after “Fat People” and do the same. The warning was ignored and politicians pledged no such thing will ever occur, again. Now we see the governments intervention with Overweight people, including children, taking children away from parents, vast regulations on foods considered unhealthy, and now overweight people having to pay higher taxes and higher insurance rates.

    What’s all the hubbub about? They were told it would happen to them too! Be careful about letting the Camel’s nose in tent. People never listen.

  13. William……….
    10/4 on your last.

  14. Something I don’t get,

    Why do people in Cyprus think for one moment they can keep their socialist policies that have bankrupted them, have other countries that are fiscally responsible lone them money, then they think (government and its private citizens alike) don’t have to pay it back?

    What a bunch of socialist morons.

  15. If you are one of the people who still have healthcare coverage at your work 20, you can look for a really hairy increase to your part of the premium cost. In fact you might end up paying the entire cost each month,or be forced into Cobra Coverage.

  16. I used to think that the takeover of the U.S. would never occur in my
    lifetime. But now i am not so sure anymore. Things seem to be progressing
    much “quicker” than i first thought. Now i believe only PRAYER AND HOPE
    IN THE LORD TO SAVE US is possible. I hope i am wrong but the events
    of the first 3 months of this year are “VERY FRIGHTNING”.
    Still i will never give up ‘HOPE”.

  17. William……….
    The next time you go to Wal Mart,or other store take a really good look around you and particularly notice how many of the people you notice seem to be overweight. I agree with the people who say there is a obesity problem in the US,and perhaps in other places on Earth as well. Exactly what to do about it should be up to those people,NOT THE GOVERNMENT, but it does open the door for increases to Healthcare costs. (excuse to raise premiums).

  18. The last time I did that it looked as though most of the overweight people were fairly young. I would say that out of every ten people I saw about 5 were obviously overweight,and nearly all were younger people.

  19. William………
    I am beginning to think that the liberals will dream up an EXTRA SPACE tax. If somebody measures 4′ across he/she could be taxed for the extra space which he/she displaces, because he/she should only measure 2′ across. Could be the next tax proposed,and I would bet that BLOOMBERG will be the first to write an OVER SIZE PERSON SPACE DISPLACEMENT TAX BILL, for the New York legislature to pass. If you are found GUILTY in being oversize you will be penalised by being suspended from a crane and used as a PILING DRIVER.

    “Harlem Pastor Says FOX News Knows Obama Is A Fraud”

  22. GORDO, thanks for the blogtalkradio link to Pastor Manning. But as i see it unfortunatly the “birther” question is a DEAD issue. Too many people have been gotton to on this one. I really cannot think of any other options we have to prove this SLIME BALL PRESIDENT IS REALLY an illegal alien !!!!!

  23. Can someone tell me what’s going on here??
    My daughter works at Walmart and she told me that every morning when the store opens up there is a line of people waiting to get to get in to buy ammo. This is crazy…am I missing out on something or what?
    In fact the store manager told these customers not to run but walk.

  24. citizenwells

    I can confirm that.
    Also, store personnel who used to have a key to the ammunition display, are now required to call someone in mgmt to unlock it for a purchase.

  25. In the letter to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, Huelskamp wrote that it had “become clear” that DHS was “purchasing vast quantities of ammunition” and that “estimates show that this … would be enough for 24 Iraq wars.”

    The Kansas congressman also said the timing of the purchase was “of great interest” because of gun control legislation currently being pushed by the Obama administration.

    “The extraordinary level of ammunition purchases made by Homeland Security seems to have, in states such as my own, created an extreme shortage of ammunition to the point where many gun owners are unable to purchase any,” he wrote.

  26. Hmmmm…..

    Russian Tycoon and Putin Opponent Found Dead in Britain – Circumstances “Unexplained”

    Berezovsky was a fierce Putin critic before he emigrated to the UK in 2000.
    Reuters reported:

    Boris Berezovsky, the Russian oligarch who helped broker Vladimir Putin’s rise to the Kremlin’s top job only to become his fierce enemy, has been found dead at his home in Britain in unclear circumstances. He was 67.

    “His death is currently being treated as unexplained and a full inquiry is under way,” police said in a statement on Saturday that did not identify Berezovsky by name.

    One of Putin’s fiercest critics, Berezovsky spoke openly of overthrowing the Russian leader and said he feared for his life though it was unclear how the mathematician-turned-tycoon had died.

    Russian media said he had been found dead in a Russian sauna at his house and that he may have committed suicide or had a heart attack, though the British police said only that they had launched an investigation into an unexplained death.

    “I can confirm he died in his home. I’ve known him for a long, long time, we have spent a lot of time together,” Andrei Sidelnikov, a Russian dissident living in London who was a friend of Berezovsky’s, told Reuters.

    “I am shocked. It is the end of an epoch.”

    Police said they had launched a full investigation into the death and cordoned off his home in the commuter town of Ascot near London

    Once one of Russia’s richest men, Berezovsky fell out with the Kremlin under Putin and fled Moscow for Britain where he became a vociferous opponent of Russia’s most powerful man.

  27. What’s next? Really, it’s so blatant and obvious, but the constant response is “what could it hurt?”.

    Survival of East Coast Fishing Industry on the Line Thanks to Barack Obama

    Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, March 23, 2013, 1:30 PM

    New England fishermen warn new regulations could kill off the fishing industry.
    Obama’s new catch limit restrictions will force fishermen out of business.

    New England fishermen say they’re facing industry collapse because they have been regulated out of business. reported:

    The New England Fishery Management Council approved a year-to-year extreme cut of 77 percent on the Gulf of Maine cod limit and 61 percent for Georges Bank cod. These cuts come on top of a pile of other federally regulated reductions, ranging from 10 to 71 percent, on the catch of other bottom-dwelling ground fish species, such as haddock and flounder. New England fisherman says now they’re facing industry collapse because they have been regulated out of business. David Goethel, a New Hampshire fisherman and council member claims “We are headed down the wrong course here, they are decimating the inshore fleet, for no good reason,” NOAA’s top federal fisheries regulator, John Bullard acknowledged the reductions will be devastating to the fishing industry. But said the fish stocks are struggling and the industry’s steady painful decline must be reversed.

    Meanwhile, in Maine… Obama is set to kill off the fishing industry in the state to save the already abundant porpoise population. Fisherman say catching a porpoise in their nets is like hitting a deer with your car. There are an estimated 89,700 porpoises thriving in the area. But Barack Obama will force local fishermen to shut down during the crucial fall months to save these animals.

    Every New England state supported Barack Obama in the 2012 election.

    Obama EPA Illegally Hands Over Info on Livestock Producers to Extremist Animal Rights Groups

    The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and the National Pork Producers are furious after the Obama Environmental Protection Agency illegally gave information on livestock farmers to extremist animal rights groups.
    Farm Futures reported:

    NCBA and the National Pork Producers Council are both furious with EPA for handing extremist groups illegally gathered data on farmers who operate confined animal feeding operations.

    NCBA said early this week it was notified by the EPA that the agency had been collecting information from states on CAFOs. The information was requested by extremist groups, including Earth Justice, the Pew Charitable Trust and the Natural Resources Defense Council through a Freedom of Information Act request and was given to them.

    The information released by EPA covers livestock operations in more than 30 states, including many family farmers who feed less than 1,000 head and are not subject to regulation under the Clean Water Act.

    “When we reviewed the information submitted by the states and released by EPA, we were alarmed at the detail of the information provided on hard working family farmers and ranchers, family operations including my own,” said NCBA past president J.D. Alexander, a cattle feeder from Pilger, Nebraska.

    “It is beyond comprehension to me that with threats to my family from harassment atop bio-security concerns, that EPA would gather this information only to release it to these groups. This information details my family’s home address and geographic coordinates. The only thing it doesn’t do is chauffeur these extremists to my house. For some operations, even telephone numbers and deceased relatives are listed.”

    The problem had recent roots in January 2012 when EPA proposed the Clean Water Act Section 308 CAFO Reporting rule to collect information from CAFOs and make it publicly available and readily searchable through their website.

    I would call it crapping in one’s own nest.

  33. Good morning Zack, CW et al.,

    I was reading this morning whereby U.S. Traitor John McCain agrees with Obama’s budget on raising taxes yet again – with no real cuts to entitlement programs, ignores reforming unsustainable Social Security and Medicare, and more billions for bailouts and urges fellow GOP members to agree with it.

    How pathetic.

  34. Zack,

    I did listen to that report pertaining to Obama’s cousin. I don’t know enough about it, but I am highly skeptical of any validity of such claims. First, for me, I am leery of anyone from Obama’s family claiming birthright knowledge born in the U.S. territories. Secondly, it makes no sense to me why Obama would not have taken advantage back in 2008 of being born on a Military Base. It would have boosted is lack of military image and solidified any doubt of his purported birth in the U.S.

    Just me though,

  35. Happy Palm day to any of our Catholic friends here.

    I am beginning to think that the liberals will dream up an EXTRA SPACE tax.


    A funny but true story I use to tell when I was the instructor for lean production manufacturing. One principle is called “Low Cost Automation” and in many cases uses “gravity” as a means for automation. I would ask the employee’s: “And what’s great about Gravity”? Someone would always shout, “Its Free”! To which I would reply, “No, it’s that Congress has yet to figure out a way to tax it – YET” Yet being the key word.

    I remember when we use to joke about Congress cannot tax “Air” and it’s free. We all know what happened there, they figured out a way… 🙂

  37. WILLIAM and ZACK……..

    Being a retired military officer who had two children born on a military base (one in San Antonio at Fort Sam Houston, and another at Fort Benning, Georgia), I can say with absolute certainty the only people who can use a MILITARY BASE for birthing purposes (or any other purpose) , YOU MUST HAVE A VALID IDENTIFICATION CARD denoting you are a MARRIED dependent OF THE SOLDIER WHO IS THE FATHER OF THE BABY BEING BORN.

    There would be all kinds of paper trails if this happened for Obama. His birth on a military base in Kansas is like his current birth certificate…’s FAKE……..

    The Obats will never learn…they keep trying to push legality when there is no legality….OBAMA WAS BORN TO AN UNMARRIED GIRL… somewhere in the world…….period !

    His daddy is either Frank Marshall Davis, or Malcome X, or some other radical communist or left leaning socialist….period!

    One thing I am sure of is…his daddy isn’t Barack Obama senior!

  38. Happy Passover and holy week. Great article on the Jews gift to humankind.

  39. Good morning all!
    Re. that story about Obama’s “cousin”, did anyone else read the following comment over at ORYR?

    This person calling themselves “Linda Joy Adams” is not to be believed. When I read her story, I was I did some research online last night, and she is nuts!!!!!
    She has been posting weird stuff all over the web since at least May of last year.
    She would talk about Topeka Kansas and how Obama was born there, and then as I read more post of hers, she started talking about how Obama was from Russian royalty and his fathers name was Pope and and a member of the family had become Pope John Paul II, and one post at her linked in site, said she was talking about Osama Bin Laden would stand at her desk and stare out the window at the World Trade Center….just crazy stuff!!!!!
    I challenge everyone to type in her name and search her postings….this person is certifiable loony!!!! Go check it out for yourself!

  40. My understanding is Barry has a male cousin who is a doctor and lives in Kansas. I believe he was interviewed by someone on Fox and I think it was Megyn Kelly. I think he is of the grand fathers side of the family. ?????

    I think just a crazy person, or a planted Obot in an attempt to thwart the efforts of exposing Obama. What better way than to come up with some implanted theory outside the normalcy of know facts? I don’t buy it, and hope that the Sheriff doesn’t either.

    I might add that there are a few mentally ill or mentally challenged persons not Obots that create harm to any effort exposing Obama. Perhaps not their fault, yet have access to a pc.

  46. CabbyAZ………Re 10:54 AM
    Most likely a Soetoro supporter. That is the sort of behavior and mentality which seems to be prevalent among the OBOTS.

  47. OldSailor,

    It was the 60’s, pot smoking anti-American revolution, acid inducing brain damaging drugs, Marxist loving socialists, communist enthusiastic college students era? Calling her a slut is putting it mildly.

  48. William……….
    According to Mark Levin all conservatives must become OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITHS,and play the same game as the liberals if we ever expect to beat them at their own little game of TWISTING THE MEANING of our laws,etc. I find myself agreeing with that notion only up to a point. If the liberals can twist our laws,then I would say that the conservatives then have the right to RE TWIST the laws and use the retwisted version to turn the liberal BULLSHI# around on them 180 degrees. I guess some folks would call that…..”AN EYE FOR AN EYE”.

  49. William……… 12:44PM
    Well sir my description of Soetoro’s mother would probably be at least fair,and probably accurate,but only ONE FACET of her sick deranged behavioral background……I too subscribe to your observations……
    otherwise stated in radio jargon 10/4.

  50. This is a very informative video called “Know Your Enemy”. It will most likely step on many toes, so don’t blame me if you find it offensive. I know my own feet are still smarting.The part I had trouble with was about our founding fathers………..but even though they were merely men, God used them. I guess in my own mind, I had deified them. Big mistake on my part.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy it……….rather long, but I found it hard to stop watching. You be the judge.

    Your answer is self evident.
    Ground hog.

  56. Any suggestions about how to remove that “gamey” taste? Tomatos maybe? 🙂

  57. citizenwells

    Grey poupon?

  58. I worked with groundhogs (a/k/a woodchucks) for many years; they are intelligent and clever critters.

    Originally, badgers were recruited to predict spring in Europe however, the groundhog was substituted in the New World.

    I will remind everyone that Phil in PA predicted an early spring; MA’s groundhog, Ms. G (the only female prognosticator of the lot) predicted 6 more weeks of winter. She was right.

    Take the issue up with Phil….

  59. SueK,

    How much wood does a woodchuck chuck? 🙂

  60. Probably a lot.

  61. Sue K. Good luck with the snow. I am hoping we get rain here! If you would like an easy and delicious soup, add frozen chopped spinach to a good quality tomato soup, sliced zucchini if you have it, some garlic and basil and enjoy! Served with a good provolone or jarlsberg cheese and you have a tasty meal for a snowy day.

  62. SueQ,

    Your snow is ending. Try living up here one winter and you’ll appreciate your ‘winters’ that much more.

    We don’t get snow in inches, we get it in feet and it goes on for days. Anything short of that is just flurries.
    hrmfc, that’s SueQ with the horrible snow tempest, not me. I’m partly cloudy and 40 degrees just north of Boston.

  63. Oops, sorry! Any snow for me is unacceptable. We moved south to get away from harsh winters and most of the time we miss the storms or get a dusting. In nine years we’ve only had to shovel once but we get dreary and nasty.

  64. Perhaps the appropriate dish would be either ground hog sausage,or Hilshire Farms ring smoked sausage with 3 cans of stewed tomatoes, and 1 small can of tomato paste, (you can also substitute about a third of a small can of original Mannwich sloppy joe sauce in place of the tomato paste.)cut the sausage in about 1/2 inch lengths, add a dash of Italian seasoning mix all ingredients over a low heat for about 2hrs. Add diced boiled,and collandered potatoes, re warm, and serve ……guaranteed to please when the FROST IS ON THE PUNKIN!.

  65. ………cooking skill level necessary to make prior sausage casserrole= about zero. You only need to know how to use a can opener, and a stirring (cooking Spoon),and a slicing knife.
