For All...> This message is in three parts...It addresses a recently approved House bill, HR 1955 and the forthcoming Senate bill which intends to validate the deviousness of the house.
Rep. Jane Harman offered a bill that was approved by a duped and neutered house of Representatives, many fearful of the jews and seeking to accommodate them to avoid criticism...very few of these representatives possessing any cojones or self-respect, or grit! Harman's bill, is called: Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism and Prevention Act (HR 1955)
Jane Harman is Jewish and her actions were done under the sponsorship of the ADL and other Jewish organizations seeking to throttle any criticisms of Jews.(I suspect that those organizations also wrote the bill) by having a statute designed to inhibit anyone from speaking out or writing about the activities of the Jewish Banksters, and their Rabbi's and political columnists whose determination to thwart Christianity is very obvious...something which many of them now openly admit...getting braver and more odious as their kinsmen gain in power and increased political positions. We can no longer be stifled or remain quietly meek, trying to be "Christian" in our actions...when we are losing our Faith and our Christianity is under attack by these internal aliens!
The Senate has yet to act on this idiocy, and note that another meek and quiet Senator was chosen to promote the same bill in the Senate...Very little has come from the controlled Media, since they see this as favoring their own demands...ignoring the fact that it stifles free speech and the first amendment. Reach your senator and get them to vote this bill of Sen. Susan Collins down!

Wow! Just like in Nazi Germany!
It will now be a crime to think differently than those in government - even if those in government are evil!
Remember - the Germans thought their deceitfully written legislation was to 'protect' them, too.

"The bill passed the House on a vote of 404-6. In the Senate the bill is sponsored by Maine Republican Susan Collins and apparently faces no meaningful opposition. Harman's bill is called the "Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act." When HR 1955 becomes law, it will create a commission tasked with identifying extremist people, groups, and ideas.
"The commission will hold hearings around the country, taking testimony and compiling a list of dangerous people and beliefs. The bill will, in short, create massive terrorism in the United States. But the perpetrators of terrorism will not be Muslim terrorists; they will be government agents and fellow citizens....."
Do not stop here. Read every word. But even more important, believe every word. And do something, do anything, but do something!
I hope our country can pull out of this tragic situation, with God's assistance. However,why would the Good Lord make an effort for a country whose leaders and most of the population seem hell-bent on ignoring His word?
Try to keep Ron Paul's candidacy alive; talk him up to those who do not understand what is coming down the pike. MIracles can still happen. Brokered conventions can happen. He is the only candidate who will try to keep the torch of freedom burning for not just our nation but the rest of the world.
Please take a moment out of your busy day to forward this email to all your elected officials at the local, state, and national levels. Please excerpt the guts of Roberts' article and put his words into a shortened version for a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. It is a known fact that your local paper is the best medium for getting the truth to the people. People read the sports section first, and then letters to the editor. Most small town newspapers will still print letters to the editor if they are not too long. And don't forget to include a request that readers contact their elected officials IMMEDIATELY to repeal this legislation!! Give readers this telephone number to call: (Capitol Switchboard) 202-224-3121.
God bless all of you and your families.

"Thinking for Yourself is Now a Crime"
January 4, 2008
By PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS
What was the greatest failure of 2007? President Bush's "surge" in Iraq? The decline in the value of the US dollar? Subprime mortgages? No. The greatest failure of 2007 was the newly sworn in Democratic Congress.
The American people's attempt in November 2006 to rein in a rogue government, which has committed the US to costly military adventures while running roughshod over the US Constitution, failed. Replacing Republicans with Democrats in the House and Senate has made no difference.
The assault on the US Constitution by the Democratic Party is as determined as the assault by the Republicans. On October 23, 2007, the House passed a bill sponsored by California Democratic congresswoman Jane Harman [http://www.congress.org/bio/id/52], chairwoman of a Homeland Security subcommittee, that overturns the
constitutionally guaranteed rights to free expression, association, and assembly.
The bill passed the House on a vote of 404-6. In the Senate the bill is sponsored by Maine Republican Susan Collins [http://www.congress.org/bio/id/283] and apparently faces no meaningful opposition. Harman's bill is called the "Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act."When HR 1955 [http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/D?d110:4:./temp/~bd6uWO::|/bss/d110query.html|] becomes law, it will create a commission tasked with identifying extremist people, groups, and ideas. The commission will hold hearings around the country, taking testimony and
compiling a list of dangerous people and beliefs. The bill will, in short, create massive terrorism in the United States. But the perpetrators of terrorism will not be Muslim terrorists; they will be government agents and fellow citizens.
We are beginning to see who will be the inmates of the detention centers being built in the US by Halliburton under government contract.
Who will be on the "extremist beliefs" list? The answer is: civil libertarians, critics of Israel, 9/11 skeptics, critics of the
administration's wars and foreign policies, critics of the administration's use of kidnapping, rendition, torture and violation of
the Geneva Conventions, and critics of the administration's spying on Americans. Anyone in the way of a powerful interest group--such as environmentalists opposing politically connected developers--is also a candidate for the list.
The "Extremist Beliefs Commission" is the mechanism for identifying Americans who pose "a threat to domestic security" and a threat of "homegrown terrorism" that "cannot be easily prevented through traditional federal intelligence or law enforcement efforts."
This bill is a boon for nasty people. That SOB who stole your girlfriend, that hussy who stole your boyfriend, the gun owner next door--just report them to Homeland Security as holders of extreme beliefs. Homeland Security needs suspects, so they are not going to check. Under the new regime, accusation is evidence. Moreover, "our" elected representatives will never admit that they voted for a bill and created an "Extremist Belief Commission" for which there is neither need nor constitutional basis.
That boss who harasses you for coming late to work--he's a good candidate to be reported; so is that minority employee that you can't fire for any normal reason. So is the husband of that good-looking woman you have been unable to seduce. Every kind of quarrel and jealousy can now be settled with a phone call to Homeland Security.
Soon Halliburton will be building more detention centers.
Americans are so far removed from the roots of their liberty that they just don't get it. Most Americans don't know what habeas corpus is or why it is important to them. But they know what they want, and Jane Harman has given them a new way to settle scores and to advance their own interests.
Even educated liberals believe that the US Constitution is a "living document" that can be changed to mean whatever it needs to mean in order to accommodate some new important cause, such as abortion and legal privileges for minorities and the handicapped. Today it is the "war on terror" that the Constitution must accommodate. Tomorrow it can be the war
on whomever or whatever.
Think about it. More than six years ago the World Trade Center and Pentagon were attacked. The US government blamed it on al Qaeda. The 9/11 Commission Report has been subjected to criticism by a large number of qualified people--including the commission's chairman and co-chairman.
Since 9/11 there have been no terrorist attacks in the US. The FBI has tried to orchestrate a few, but the "terrorist plots" never got beyond talk organized and led by FBI agents. There are no visible extremist groups other than the neoconservatives that control the government in Washington. But somehow the House of Representatives overwhelmingly sees a need to create a commission to take testimony and search out extremist views (outside of Washington, of course).
This search for extremist views comes after President Bush and the Justice (sic) Department declared that the President can ignore habeas corpus, ignore the Geneva Conventions, seize people without evidence, hold them indefinitely without presenting charges, torture them until they confess to some made up crime, and take over the government by declaring an
emergency. Of course, none of these "patriotic" views are extremist.
The search for extremist views follows also the granting of contracts to Halliburton to build detention centers in the US. No member of Congress or the executive branch ever explained the need for the detention centers or who the detainees would be. Of course, there is nothing extremist about building detention centers in the US for undisclosed inmates.
Clearly the detention centers are not meant to just stand there empty. Thanks to 2007's greatest failure--the Democratic Congress--there is to be an "Extremist Beliefs Commission" to secure inmates for Bush's detention centers.
President Bush promises us that the wars he has launched will cause the "untamed fire of freedom" to "reach the darkest corners of our world." Meanwhile in America the fire of freedom has not only been tamed but also is being extinguished.
The light of liberty has gone out in the United States.
