...they was selling it without your consent anyway. Did ya ever go to a store and buy something with one of them key fob cards ya use to get a discount and then go home and start getting spam telephone calls from telemarketers about just that very subject?

...mz ribit insists that we have a land line but if it wasn't for her there would not be one anywhere about. Spammers everywhere would be irate. I imagine that da gubmint could force everybody to buy a landline for the robocallers could annoy ya, or they would have to make it legal for em to sic the robos on your cellphone.

And an assault on FIRST Amendment freedoms of assembly, and free speech.

http://www.allenbwest.com/allen/lefts-assault-second-amendment-just-got-personal

Specifically, a resident of Virginia has filed a nuisance complaint against PNTC alleging that noise from operation of the shooting range is a nuisance, and therefore interferes with his property rights. This complaint was filed in Berkeley County Circuit Court and is before Circuit Court Judge Grey Silver, styled Ben and Diane Goldstein v. Peacemaker Properties, LLC and Peacemaker National Training Center, LLC, Civil Action No. 15-C-520. Court documents filed in the case are public record and may be reviewed through the Circuit Clerk’s office.
...
Despite numerous motions and requests to reconsider, and numerous mediation efforts with the plaintiff, the court has ordered PNTC to produce the below documents and other private records under a “Protective Order.” Under this order, the plaintiffs and their counsel are legally permitted to access the following information:

– All member files
– All waivers from any person who has accessed PNTC, to include all law enforcement, federal agency personnel, military personnel and foreign military personnel names
– All shooting competition files and lists
– All training information and lists
– All customer waivers
– Identities of all persons who have used PNTC ranges
– All ATF & NFA records (to include Forms 4473 and ATF bound book information)
...

A recurring meme (for me) on this board is a central government that is a five headed hydra - grown beyond any non-revolutionary means of control. Each day that goes by, the TOTALITARIAN POWER of 'the (US) government' is revealed by innumerable patriots.

It is GOOD to see that there 'buried' patriots ensconced within this five headed hydra that are doing what they can to expose the very real and present dangers to our CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNANCE.

And with that - I count Daniel as one of the OUTSIDERS who writes with scalpel precision in highlighting many of those dangers.

(selected excerpts - recommend ENTIRE article, especially for the historical context, backed up with links to that history.)
...
After Trump secured the nomination, Obama’s people filed a wiretapping request. As he was on the verge of winning, they did it again. After he won, they are doing everything they can to bring him down.

It was always going to come down to this.

One is the elected President of the United States. The other is the Anti-President who commands a vast network that encompasses the organizers of OFA, the official infrastructure of the DNC and Obama Anonymous, a shadow government of loyalists embedded in key positions across the government.
...
In its last days, Obama Inc. made it easier to pass along unfiltered personal information to the other agencies where Obama loyalists were working on their investigation targeting Trump. The NSA pipeline now makes it possible for the shadow White House to still gain intelligence on its domestic enemies.

And the target of the shadow White House is the President of the United States. 

There is now a President and an Anti-President. A government and a shadow government. The anti-President controls more of the government through his shadow government than the real President.

...

Big Hat Tip to Daniel - his command of history and ability to cut through the BS is heartening.

Testing time is over, my friend. It is way, way past time for our Justice Department to begin again in living up to its name. The Corrupt-o-Crats of the Barry Soetoro Banana Republic need to be investigated thoroughly and have their crimes, if substantiated, prosecuted vigorously. Criminals need to go to jail ... no matter who they are ... or who they think they are ... even if it is Butthole Hussein Obama, himself.

Compos(t)ing solely on computer doesn't hack it for me. A printout and arming with red pencil works better. (and a good long timeout period before each edit pass.)

One posters opin,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Not mine, but I agree with a lot he says..........

One may say it is a Civil War. Others might say perhaps the first stage of World War 3. Most here on GLP would say both of those have already started on January 20, 2009. I do know that World War 3 will be between NATIONALISTS and GLOBALISTS and the STATE ACTORS that have collaborated with the Obama Regime to destabilize America into Civil War. America, Britain and France are the faces of this NATIONALIST MOVEMENT and President Trump needs to meet and hold a press conference with Le Pen to show solidarity with this ANTI-GLOBALIST, ANTI-ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT MOVEMENT. America needs to form an ANTI-GLOBALIST COALITION to suppress the DNC INSURRECTION actively seeking to undermine and weaken President Trump's Administration to overthrow it. Great Britain is also under attack from COMMIE GLOBALISTS using the RUSSIAN HACKING NARRATIVE to undermine and overturn the BREXIT VOTE. $oro$ and Obama have unlimited financing to pay strategically placed DNC UNDERCOVER OPERATIVES to gather INTEL to leak to the complicit media. This is intentional for POLITICAL SUBVERSION and should be prosecuted under SEDITION AND TREASON. The media will paint any arrests by President Trump's Administration as politically motivated and these DOMESTIC TERRORISTS will be propagandized as political prisoners to create the narrative that President Trump is a DICTATOR. Couple that with the DNC's hiring of 4 Muslim Brotherhood Operatives paid MILLIONS to spy on the House Foreign Affairs and House Intelligence Committee and you can see a distinct pattern emerging. The OPPOSITION PARTY'S actions belie their true intentions and cannot be surmised as anything other than preparations for War through Obfuscation and Escalation through Instigation.

This is how the DICTATOR of a Shadow Police State instigates a Civil War. The preferred method is conducted through a calculated campaign of PSYCHOLOGICAL OPERATIONS (Psy-Ops). A black journalist was arrested for calling in threats to Jewish Community Centers which the media used to blame on Trump Supporters without any evidence and then proceeded to vilify President Trump as being anti-Semitic. Black pastors lighting their own churches on fire claiming RACISM and a fat insurance check. Muslim Imams vandalizing their own mosques while claiming ISLAMIPHOBIA. A Muslim female in Michigan claiming WHITE Trump supporters ripped off her hijab which was proven false and she admitted it. Nazi and KKK graffiti tagged by black people. Fake racist troll accounts written and owned by black and hispanic and middle eastern people. White DNC operatives dressed in Trump gear being hired to go to rallies and incite racial violence proven by Project Veritas. I could go on and on across the country about these same examples that were only reported locally during the election season. These are militant PSY-OPS being perpetuated upon the AMERICAN PEOPLE by this COMMIE GLOBALIST INSURRECTION. This is a Civil War that Obama's Shadow Government is waging and this will only escalate. Just wait until President Trump is blamed for drug testing of all UNEMPLOYMENT, FOOD STAMP AND WELFARE RECIPIENTS or those programs are cancelled all together. Just wait until the Cartel Controlled Sanctuary Cities revolt. This spring and summer will be the escalation point known officially as THE FIGHTING SEASON. You will see rioting and random acts of violence against white people nationwide. This will be a GUERRILLA CIVIL RACE WAR and it will never end if this INSURRECTION is not crushed now. We have innocent PATRIOTS stranded behind enemy lines surrounded by CARTEL CONTROLLED SANCTUARY CITIES with no means to protect themselves as the DNC uses the guise of compassionate immigration to expand their voter base and revenue stream through HUMAN TRAFFICKING. I call it the UNDERGROUND RAILROAD to MODERN DAY SLAVERY. The FBI calls it the BLACK MARKET for SEX TRAFFICKING and the DEA has identified all of them as NARCOTICS MULES for NARCOTICS TRAFFICKING. I call THEM the DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

The Obama Shadow Regime's game-plan is to use the template of their Ukraine Playbook to destabilize President Trump's Administration by undermining his Cabinet to weaken the EXECUTIVE BRANCH with the intention of overthrowing it. Obama was able to achieve this in Ukraine by presenting Viktor Yanukovych as a RUSSIAN PROXY PUPPET PRESIDENT, American Propaganda Media is pushing this same RUSSIAN PROXY PUPPET NARRATIVE for 5 months as a means to paint President Trump as a RUSSIAN PROXY PUPPET PRESIDENT. The objective is to create CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE DESTABILIZATION just as was accomplished in UKRAINE. These MANUFACTURED PROTESTS are intentionally orchestrated to weaken our National Security. The media has already stated the reason President Trump has not released his TAX RETURNS is because of his FINANCIAL ties to Russia. Two men named Felix Sater and Dmitry Firtash will be linked to President Trump and his campaign. AG Sessions is now being propagandized as being complicit with "SUPPOSED TIES" to Russia along with General Flynn and Paul Manafort. Does not matter that this is not true, President Trump is being painted into a corner for POLITICAL ASSASSINATION. Every action will be met with repercussions for all PATRIOTS. I will provide links after I post this to prevent any censorship or ERRONEOUS COPYRIGHT DELETIONS by Mods or Admins. I can assure you that every article I have written is of my own volition, exclusively encompassing my own vernacular in it's composition. I challenge any and all GLP members to prove otherwise.

Justice Scalia on 'Independent Prosecutor' - Dissenting Opinion

From Mr. Wizard's recent post, #msg-994275 , a referenced resource in http://pjmedia.com/andrewmccarthy/2017/03/03/there-is-no-such-thing-as-an-independent-counsel/ was a dissenting opinion that Justice Scalia wrote regarding the Constitutionality of a CONGRESSIONALLY appointed and CONGRESSIONALLY controlled Independent Prosecutor.

Scalia's finding - strictly UnConstitutional

In amongst the excessively verbose and obfuscating legal-sleaze bullcrap of the majority opinion (delivered by Rehnquist) and the more readable DISSENTING opinion of Justice Scalia - this para best summarizes the bottom line.

To repeat, Article II, 1, cl. 1, of the Constitution provides:

"The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States."

As I described at the outset of this opinion, this does not mean some of the executive power, but all of the executive power. It seems to me, therefore, that the decision of the Court of Appeals invalidating the present statute must be upheld on fundamental separation-of-powers principles if the following two questions are answered affirmatively:

(1) Is the conduct of a criminal prosecution (and of an investigation to decide whether to prosecute) the exercise of purely executive power?

(2) Does the statute deprive the President of the United States of exclusive control over the exercise of that power?

Surprising to say, the Court appears to concede an affirmative answer to both questions, but seeks to avoid the inevitable conclusion that since the statute vests some purely executive power in a person who is not the President of the United States it is void.

Am posting this to throw more light on the 'Decline of the Constitution' - this is a well composed historical look at how the 10 worst have contributed to the decline of the Constitution.

Warning - Top of the List is LINCOLN- hyup - Lincoln. Well reasoned, historically documented and historically correct. Worth reading and thinking about.

http://www.lewrockwell.com/2016/09/chuck-baldwin/10-worst-us-presidents/

Note: I disagree with the article on the 'legalities' of the Iraq and Afghanistan invasions. Baldwin's Rand abd Ron Paul style idiot isolationism is something I don't buy into - nor do I buy the "It's our fault" bullshit (another Rand/Ron psychosis) about 'increasing muslim radicalism and terrorism'.
