“Government continues to grow, while the amount of data they amass about the lives of citizens grows exponentially. We have seen major corporations in the areas of advertising, social media, defense contracting, and computing form partnerships with government agencies to compile virtual dossiers on all humans.
The fact that we are tracked, traced and databased is indisputable, but even many privacy advocates seem to believe that the sheer amount of data being collected is itself the Achilles Heel of the surveillance-industrial complex; that it is a sort of protection, as who or what could ever sift through it all?
John P. Holdren, Obama’s science czar, and author of the controversial eugenics tome, Ecoscience, is one of those directing the solution to the data overload problem. Enter “Big Data.””

“While the Food and Drug Administration has seemingly reached the limit for unbelievable behavior, the company’s decisions continue to astound and appall consumers and health activists alike.
In the agency’s latest decision, undoubtedly amazing thousands of individuals yet again, the FDA virtually erased 1 million signatures and comments on the ‘Just Label It’ campaign calling for the labeling of genetically modified foods.
The ‘Just Label It” campaign has gotten more signatures than any campaign in history for the labeling of genetically modified foods. Since October of 2011, the campaign has received over 900,000 signatures, with 55 politicians joining in on the movement. So what’s the problem here?
Evidently, the FDA counts the amount of signatures not by how many people signed, but how many different individual letters are brought to it. To the FDA, even tens of thousands of signatures presented on a single petition are counted as – you guessed it – a single comment.
This is how, despite over a million supporters being gathered by the petition, the FDA concluded a count of only 394.”

“Most people think of a cashless society as something that is way off in the distant future. Unfortunately, that is simply not the case. The truth is that a cashless society is much closer than most people would ever dare to imagine. To a large degree, the transition to a cashless society is being done voluntarily. Today, only 7 percent of all transactions in the United States are done with cash, and most of those transactions involve very small amounts of money. Just think about it for a moment. Where do you still use cash these days? If you buy a burger or if you purchase something at a flea market you will still use cash, but for any mid-size or large transaction the vast majority of people out there will use another form of payment. Our financial system is dramatically changing, and cash is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. We live in a digital world, and national governments and big banks are both encouraging the move away from paper currency and coins. But what would a cashless society mean for our future? Are there any dangers to such a system?”
“Earlier we noted that the record lottery jackpot is nothing but a gimmick to get “the poor” to part with what little wealth they have. As it turns out, we should have also added “the stupid”, something which MarketWatch has, however, figured out, and in a blatant attempt to ride on the Mega Millions histeria, and to get the the full blown stock market ponzi up and running, the WSJ sister publication is now petitioning everyone to please understand that playing the lottery and participating in a broken, fraudulent and corrupt stock market, are both one and the same: “You have to play to win.” We must thank MarketWatch for implicitly pointing out that winning in the centrally planned stock ponzi scheme, in which every trade is frontrun by either a major bank or a millisecond algo, has the same 1 in 100,000,000+ odds as winning the lottery, roughly the same as coming out of Bernie Madoff Asset Management with all your cash intact.”

“The Democrats must all be voted out of office, especially Nancy Pelosi.
(CNSNews.com)– House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that while she supports the investigation into the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin that is taking place in the justice system, “other options” should be considered “if that doesn’t seem to be working.”
There is no “other option”; stating that if you don’t get the results you want you will ignore the justice system is open and notorious sedition.
1. incitement of discontent or rebellion against a government.
2. any action, especially in speech or writing, promoting such discontent or rebellion.
3. Archaic . rebellious disorder.
Refusal to abide the judicial system if it doesn’t give you the results you want is the very definition of insurrection. “

“Vice President Joe Biden offered a frank assessment of his career in remarks at a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night. According to a White House pool report, Biden, surrounded by the city’s movers and shakers, praised former Mayor Richard M. Daley and then said: “I never had an interest in being a mayor ’cause that’s a real job. You have to produce. That’s why I was able to be a senator for 36 years.””
Michelle Takes a Day Trip to Mt. Rushmore
“According to the Rapid City Journal, Michelle landed Wednesday at Ellsworth Air Force Base and hopped in a ten car motorcade for the trip to Mount Rushmore. Advance work had already been done by the Secret Service and White House staff, who had arrived in town earlier in the week.
After viewing the memorial, the Obamas “showed a bit of a sweet tooth,” according to the paper, and stopped at the Turtle Town fudge shop where they had fudge and ice cream.
The visit caused access to parts of the memorial to be restricted and required visitors to go through a security checkpoint.”
“More than quadrupling an estimate it put forth last year for new agents (http://dailycaller.com), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) now says that it will need more than 4,000 new agents to enforce the provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare. And in addition to these new agents, the IRS is also asking for more than $300 million in new funding to help fortify the infrastructure it will supposedly need to unconstitutionally force Americans to purchase government healthcare.
The constitutionality of Obamacare is currently being reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court, and yet the IRS is already acting as though the overhaul is definitive law. According to IRS budget requests, the agency says it needs a massive cash infusion to “continue the development of new systems and modifications of existing systems required to support new tax credits.” But in reality, this money will more than likely be used to spy on Americans and fine them for failing to purchase adequate health coverage.”
