This is Why We Voted Them Out

With tactics like the past (and probably the future) Lame Duck session, the only bill that should be passed after an election, where there is clear transition of power, NO bill(s) shall be permitted to be brought to cloture by the leadership leaving power, until the new members have been seated.

Food Safety Act–Criminalizes the Right to Grow, Own, Trade, Transport, Share, Feed and Eat Homegrown Crops?

Thought I would provide some new information about the a new law that the ‘Lame Duck’ session is voting on to ‘improve’ our lives….This information comes from the www.asamom.org website.

Yours In Truth  Winking smile  Shelly

S510 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. (http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-510 )
"If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public's right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one's choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God." It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food." ~ Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower.
Monsanto says it has no interest in the bill and would not benefit from it, but Monsanto's Michael Taylor who gave us rBGH and unregulated genetically modified (GM) organisms, appears to have designed it and is waiting as an appointed Food Czar to the FDA (a position unapproved by Congress) to administer the agency it would create without judicial review if it passes.
S 510 would give Monsanto unlimited power over all US seed, food supplements, food AND FARMING.
In the 1990s, Bill Clinton introduced HACCP (Hazardous Analysis Critical Control Points) purportedly to deal with contamination in the meat industry. Clinton's HACCP delighted the offending corporate (World Trade Organization "WTO") meat packers since it allowed them to inspect themselves, eliminated thousands of local food processors (with no history of contamination), and centralized meat into their control. Monsanto promoted HACCP.
In 2008, Hillary Clinton, urged a powerful centralized food safety agency as part of her campaign for president. Her advisor was Mark Penn, CEO of Burson Marsteller*, a giant PR firm representing Monsanto. Clinton lost, but Clinton friends such as Rosa DeLauro, whose husband's firm lists Monsanto as a progressive client and globalization as an area of expertise, introduced early versions of S 510.
S 510 fails on moral, social, economic, political, constitutional, and human survival grounds.
1. It puts all US food and all US farms under Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, in the event of contamination or an ill-defined emergency. It resembles the Kissinger Plan.
2. It would end US sovereignty over its own food supply by insisting on compliance with the WTO, thus threatening national security. It would end the Uruguay Round Agreement Act of 1994, which put US sovereignty and US law under perfect protection. Instead, S 510 says:
Nothing in this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) shall be construed in a manner inconsistent with the agreement establishing the World Trade Organization or any other treaty or international agreement to which the United States is a party.
3. It would allow the government, under Maritime Law, to define the introduction of any food into commerce (even direct sales between individuals) as smuggling into "the United States." Since under that law, the US is a corporate entity and not a location, "entry of food into the US" covers food produced anywhere within the land mass of this country and "entering into" it by virtue of being produced.
4. It imposes Codex Alimentarius on the US, a global system of control over food. It allows the United Nations (UN), World Health Organization (WHO), UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the WTO to take control of every food on earth and remove access to natural food supplements. Its bizarre history and its expected impact in limiting access to adequate nutrition (while mandating GM food, GM animals, pesticides, hormones, irradiation of food, etc.) threatens all safe and organic food and health itself, since the world knows now it needs vitamins to survive, not just to treat illnesses.
5. It would remove the right to clean, store and thus own seed in the US, putting control of seeds in the hands of Monsanto and other multinationals, threatening US security. See Seeds ­ How to criminalize them, for more details.
6. It includes NAIS, an animal traceability program that threatens all small farmers and ranchers raising animals. The UN is participating through the WHO, FAO, WTO, and World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) in allowing mass slaughter of even heritage breeds of animals and without proof of disease. Biodiversity in farm animals is being wiped out to substitute genetically engineered animals on which corporations hold patents. Animal diseases can be falsely declared. S 510 includes the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), despite its corrupt involvement in the H1N1 scandal, which is now said to have been concocted by the corporations.
7. It extends a failed and destructive HACCP to all food, thus threatening to do to all local food production and farming what HACCP did to meat production ­ put it in corporate hands and worsen food safety.
8. It deconstructs what is left of the American economy. It takes agriculture and food, which are the cornerstone of all economies, out of the hands of the citizenry, and puts them under the total control of multinational corporations influencing the UN, WHO, FAO and WTO, with HHS, and CDC, acting as agents, with Homeland Security as the enforcer. The chance to rebuild the economy based on farming, ranching, gardens, food production, natural health, and all the jobs, tools and connected occupations would be eliminated.
9. It would allow the government to mandate antibiotics, hormones, slaughterhouse waste, pesticides and GMOs. This would industrialize every farm in the US, eliminate local organic farming, greatly increase global warming from increased use of oil- based products and long-distance delivery of foods, and make food even more unsafe. The five items listed the Five Pillars of Food Safety are precisely the items in the food supply which are the primary source of its danger.
10. It uses food crimes as the entry into police state power and control. The bill postpones defining all the regulations to be imposed; postpones defining crimes to be punished, postpones defining penalties to be applied. It removes fundamental constitutional protections from all citizens in the country, making them subject to a corporate tribunal with unlimited power and penalties, and without judicial review.

A Letter to All President’s from ‘We the People’

A Letter to the President from We the People

Dear President Obama,
“We The People” have stated resolutely we reject your vision for our country. You claim you have not heard us.
“We The People” have assembled across America resisting your efforts to subvert our constitution and undermine our liberty. You claim you have not seen us.
Since you have not acknowledged our message, let us here present it once more for if as President Wilson said, “a leader’s ear must ring with the voices of the people,” the time has come.
Our greatest treasure is freedom – the absence of restraints on our ability to think and to act. The corollary of freedom is individual responsibility. We believe in the power of the individual.
A few years ago President Bush said, “History moves toward freedom because the desire for freedom is written in every human heart.” Let us add that we will preserve it only as long as devotion to freedom is expressed in the heart of our actions.
When President Lincoln dedicated Gettysburg National Cemetery he declared, “It is for us the living to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus so nobly advanced.”
That unfinished cause for which our soldiers willingly go to battle and for which so many have given their lives is a free United States of America. It has been nearly one hundred fifty years and the work President Lincoln spoke of is not finished. In fact, that work will never be finished.
Freedom is the capacity of self-determination. It is not an entity but a condition and conditions change. Freedom can expand, yet so can it contract.
You promised change when you took office, Mr. President, but subjugation is not change we wanted or will accept.
You have expanded government, violated our Constitution, confounded laws, seized private industry, destroyed jobs, perverted our economy, curtailed free speech, corrupted our currency, weakened our national security, and endangered our sovereignty.
By compromising our nation’s cultural, legal and economic institutions, you are ensuring that our children will never achieve the same quality of life as we enjoy today. Through generational theft you are robbing the unborn of opportunity.
This is not acceptable. Not in America. We did not become a strong nation through hope but rather through self-reliance.
No one better understands the relationship between individual achievement, dignity and strength than our armed forces. Through every war our soldiers have held this nation’s destiny in their hands. They have not failed us. They cherish freedom enough that they are willing to die for it.
Our duty to them and to ourselves is to treasure freedom enough to live up to it.
We accept the challenge, Mr. President. That is why we are assembling across the land to deliver our message to you as often and in every way we can. Dismiss us at your political peril.
Our great nation is a Republic. We will not accept tyranny under any guise. Your policy to redistribute the fruits of our labor is Statism and will not be tolerated.
By our honor, Mr. President, we vow forever to resist coercive government in America. Patriots will not stand silent as you attempt to dismantle the greatest nation on earth. “We The People” will defend our liberty. We will protect our beloved country and America’s exceptionalism will prevail.
God Bless the United States of America!
We The People

Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving to those Politically Responsible–not Politically Correct

Received this yesterday along with a letter of frustration over the direction the US is going in order to feign safety and blindly obey the PC Police….

While we are giving thanks this Thanksgiving Day…may we give thanks to God, Providence, America and a lot of innocents who have died unnecessarily through blind obedience to ‘Political Correctness’, not ‘Political Responsibility’.

Yours In Truth  Smile Shelly

The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15,
2008.  It doesn't take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe - and possibly to the rest of the world.

Date: Tue. 15 January 2008 14:30

By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez
I walked down the street in Barcelona , and suddenly discovered a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz .  We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims.  In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, and talent.

We destroyed the Chosen People, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.
The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world.

These are the people we burned.
And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism, and lack of tolerance,

crime, and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.
They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime. 

Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.
And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.
We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.
What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe .
A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to them.

No, I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling.  Do you?  So, to ensure we Americans/Canadians never offend anyone, particularly fanatic’s intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people.  They

must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim males between the ages 17 and 40 alone lest they be guilty of profiling.
Let's send this to as many people as we can so that the Nancy Pelosis, Gloria Aldreds, and other dunder-headed attorneys, along with Federal Justices who want to thwart common sense, feel ashamed of themselves - if they have any such sense. 
We can not allow the socialist transformation being brought on by the current administration to continue. Look at what it has done to Europe .
We all must stand together before it's too late and everything America stands for is lost.

The Jews are NOT promoting the brain-washing of children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non-Muslims.  The Jews don't hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants.  There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church.  There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people.
The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.
Perhaps the world's Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.
Muslims must ask what they can do for humankind before they demand that humankind respects them.
Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel 's part, the following two sentences really say it all:
"If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence.  If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel ." Benjamin Netanyahu
General Eisenhower Warned Us.

It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.
He did this because he said in words to this effect:
"Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened." 
Recently the UK debated whether to remove 'The Holocaust' from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population, which claims it never, occurred.  It is not removed as yet.  However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that s gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it. 
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.

This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the, 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented, on and humiliated while the German people looked the other way.
Now more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be a myth, it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets. 
This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people.  Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.

How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center 'NEVER HAPPENED,' because it offends some Muslim in the United States ?
Do not just delete this message.  It will take only a minute to pass this along.

The Rise of George Soros (and Agenda)

This week I watched all ‘3’ segments that the Glenn Beck Show did on ‘George Soros’ (aka: George Schwartz).  The most important segment was saved for last and I have brought it to my site for you to watch, learn and share.  It’s all about common sense folks.  A lot of what’s happened over the past decades have not made sense, but after watching this video clip and reading the documented/footnoted information on George Soros within the link below…it all makes sense.

Father of fallen hero Aaron Aamot reflects on Veterans Day


Bookmark and Share

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the "War to end all Wars" came to a close. Peace came to a world embroiled in war. It was to celebrate this peace that this day, Armistice Day, first became a national holiday - a day to remember and thank those who had brought it.

In the subsequent years our nation followed a policy eschewing war, putting actions to our words with peace conferences and disarmament treaties. We, of course, were not alone in these efforts to bring a lasting peace to our world.

1936: Gallup polled the American people concerning our possible involvement in another conflict in Europe. We were in the middle of the Great Depression. Domestic problems far outweighed foreign affairs. We had watched the rise of Mussolini, Hitler, and an ever more militaristic Japan under Hirohito. They looked and sounded like characters out of a comic book. They were little people, inconsequential people. Nobody in America wanted to die for some slob living halfway around the world. It didn't concern us. Nineteen out of 20 Americans said "stay out of foreign entanglements."

March, 1938: Neville Chamberlain, Prime Minister of Great Britain, stepped off his plane holding a treaty signed by the powers of Europe. He held it aloft with these words; "It is peace in our time." Eighteen months later, the "peace in our time" came to a violent end.

Dec. 7, 1941, "a day that will live in infamy" that it seems nobody remembers anymore. About 2,400 Americans were killed in a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. We had no plane to match the Japanese Zero, no force to oppose the German Blitzkrieg.

Although we had pursued peace with single-minded thoughtlessness, we were now at war and the young men and women of our country were called upon to make up for the failures of our diplomats. Wherever they went, they brought war. But peace followed after.

From that time to the present our sons and daughters, friends and neighbors have continued to serve us, the U.S., by going everywhere and doing everything. Regardless of the times or branch of service, they know that once they take that oath and put on that uniform they may find themselves in a place of extreme danger.

Yet generation after generation the great young men and women of America continue to come forth and stand in the gap for us. It is solely because of their willingness to do so - to sacrifice for all of us - that we as a nation continue to enjoy safety, security, our freedoms and our sacred rights in the midst of a world full of turmoil and uncertainty.

November is a significant month for our family. It was November, 1945, that dad came home. He stepped off the train down at the depot and walked uptown to the building now known as the Bellingham Towers, where his dad was working. Grandpa packed up his tools and they went home together.

Sixty-four years later, dad's grandson flew into the airport to a very different reception, as many thousands of people turned out to welcome him home. In the year since, our family has attended many memorials and dedications.

But this time of year brings to mind another dedicatory service attended by a man to whom the lives and fortunes of the soldier, the sailor, the Marine were always held close to his heart and mind for he was their commander-in-chief and he knew what they represented. On another November this tall, gaunt, haggard-looking man, Abraham Lincoln, stood up and encapsulated who we are as a nation protected by a citizen soldiery in a few simple words that still resonate today:

"It is for us, the living, rather, to be dedicated, here, to the unfinished work that they have thus far so nobly carried on. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us ... that the nation shall, under God, have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

Mark Aaron Aamot of Custer is a native of Whatcom County. While he never served in the Armed Forces, he is the son of one soldier and the father of four more. Aamot's son, U.S. Army Spc. Aaron Aamot died in Afghanistan in 2009.

Thank You for Voting

The votes are in and in many places they are still being counted.  This has been a long and amazing election season.  Some of the outcomes are a little surprising, but I’ve seen a lot of Jekyll & Hyde voting in Washington State before and there’s a little of that this election cycle, also.  All in all, there was a great turnout and we move on to the next election cycle to keep turning this political ship around, back to the foundations of our Constitution, both U.S. and State.  The first task is to stay in contact with each other and the newly elected representatives to work for these common goals.

Thank you Whatcom County, Washington State and citizens of the United States!  You are Silent No More!

Yours In Truth  Smile  Shelly
