Michael J. “Mike” Rogers

Michael J. “Mike” Rogers is a traitor.

Michael J. “Mike” Rogers, a Republican Congressman from Michigan, is a traitor and outright liar. One of many examples of this is his claim the NSA is not listening to phone calls.

On Sunday’s (June 16, 2013) “State of the Union” on CNN, Mike Rogers as head of the House Intelligence Committee, insisted that although there have been allegations made to contrary, the National Security Agency isn’t listening in on Americans’ personal communications.

“I can’t tell you how strong we need to make this clear,” Rogers said. “The NSA is not listening to Americans’ phone calls, and it is not monitoring their emails. If it did, it’s illegal. It’s breaking the law.”

Obviously in Mr. Rogers neighborhood, the truth means the opposite. It’s already been revealed that Obama’s NSA has already admitted to listening in on private phone calls of Americans with absolutely no connection to cases being investigated by the NSA. The NSA also probably monitors text and e-mail messages too. But NeoCon liar Mike Rogers lied to bloated Candy Crowley that the NSA doesn’t listen to private conversations.

“I can’t tell you how strong we need to make this clear,” Rogers said. “The NSA is not listening to Americans’ phone calls, and it is not monitoring their emails. If it did, it’s illegal. It’s breaking the law.”

Host Candy Crowley asked Rogers if the intelligence agency still might be recording calls but not listening to them. Rogers replied that this was occurring only in certain circumstances.

“I could go get a warrant on a criminal case, yes, absolutely,” Rogers said. “But that’s very, very different. And I think they think that there’s this mass surveillance of what you’re saying on your phone call and what you’re typing in your emails. That is just not happening. And it’s important, I think, for people to understand because there’s all this misinformation about what these programs are.”

“That’s why I hope coming out and talking about how they’ve disrupted plots in this very narrow, very tight program will show Americans, hey, listen, they protected our privacy,” he continued. “They followed the rule. They have a court order. I mean, they’re doing this right, and it is protecting the United States from terrorist attacks being plotted from overseas. This is an important program to continue.”

Over the past few years, we’ve found that Rep. Mike Rogers has an incredible knack for spewing pure bullshit in defense of whatever he’s supporting, rarely even bothering to make sure his statements are internally consistent. Still, his statements on Meet the Press this weekend take that nonsense to a new high. Rogers goes off on Snowden — who he has already declared “is a traitor” — arguing in favor of the “theft of government property” charges against Snowden by making the following statement:

    “He has taken information that does not belong to him — it belongs to the people of the United States.”

Right. This information that “belongs to the people of the United States,” which has been totally hidden from us, was actually finally given to the people of the United States — to whom Rogers admits it belongs — by Snowden. And, for that, he’s a traitor? How, exactly, does that work? By Rogers’ own argument, the information, before Snowden leaked it, was improperly withheld, thanks to people like Rep. Mike Rogers, from the people who own it. Thus, by Rogers’ own logic, isn’t it actually Mike Rogers who is the traitor in that he withheld crucial information that “belongs to the people of the United States”?

Of course, Rogers didn’t stop there. No, no. He continued with his internally inconsistent, and blatantly ridiculous argument by saying that (1) terrorists now know what we’re up to and are changing what they do, and (2) so little information has been revealed that everyone thinks they know what’s happening, but don’t. That makes no sense. If (1) is true, it suggests that the actual details of the program have been revealed and thus wrongdoers now know our methods. But, immediately, he changes course and says that no one really knows what’s going on — in which case he shouldn’t be concerned about terrorists changing what they do, because it shouldn’t stop the successful programs that no one knows about.

    We have seen that bad guys overseas — terrorists who are committing and plotting attacks on the United States and our allies — have changed the way they operate. We’ve already seen that. To say that’s not harmful to the national security of the United States, or our safety, is just dead wrong…

    [….] This is the problem with having a thousand-piece puzzle, taking three or four pieces, and deciding that you’re now an expert on what that picture looks like. You’re gonna get it wrong. They’re getting it wrong and it’s dangerous.

So, let me get this straight. The revealed information means that reporters only see a few pieces of the puzzle so they’re getting the story “dead wrong.” But… the terrorists, who are reading these stories, are somehow, magically, getting the full picture (the one the reporters are getting dead wrong) and miraculously changing how they act to now avoid NSA surveillance dragnets? How’s that work? Answer: it doesn’t. Rogers is spewing bullshit.

We don’t ask for much from our elected officials, but is it really too much to ask that they make statements that are internally consistent within the brief block of time they open their mouths to yap about some subject on which they’re supposedly “in charge”?

Dianne Feinstein

Dianne Feinstein is a traitor.

Dianne Feinstein is a traitor.

Dianne Feinstein is a traitor.

Dianne Feinstein has funneled over 1 billion in contracts to her husband Richard Blum’s URS … just one of his companies to which she has funneled money stolen from the people of America. She has also with our money helped him profiteer from bankster foreclosures.

Feinstein was forced to resign from the military construction appropriations subcommittee because of her criminal acts. She deliberately falsified intelligence and voted, unlike most Democrats, to give the unelected Bush authority to rain fire and death on Iraq.

Feinstein was a tool of the Israeli government in claiming falsely in 2002 that Saddam Hussein had nuclear weapons.

Feinstein opposes assault weapons in the US while voting for 30 billion dollars a year for assault weapons, fighter jets, and other armsmongering for the fraudulently installed Netanyahu government. Her husband Richard Blum was involved in Cosco’s gun running in San Diego. Her husband’s investment in Chinese shipping is one of many factors in the failure of the US government to inspect more than 5% of incoming crates.

Her husband’s role as past chairman and present member of the Univ of Calif. Board of Overseershas helped make that state the most aggressive denier of the 1st amendment for peaceful protesters against UC vivisection. Blum was active in lobbying for AETA and pressuring for its unconstitutional enforcement.

Feinstein has many times violated the sovereign will of the people of California, ignoring their overwhelming support for immediate withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan.

The government’s investigations of the Feinstein/Blum corrupt connections to Chinese money have only partially been investigated. Like those of Mitt Romney, Henry Kissinger, Henry Paulson, Warren Buffett and Rupert Murdoch, Feinstein’s Chinese money connections are in conflict with the interests of the people of the US and in conflict with the role of an intelligence chairman.

In 1994, Feinstein ignored human rights issues in China and led the effort to renew most-favored-nation trade status for China at a time when her husband was preparing to invest $150 million of his clients’ money, along with $2 million to $3 million of his own, in China.

Feinstein has been silent about the 911 Israeli govt’s role in the WTC plot.

Feinstein pushed for the leasing of a South California naval base to a Chinese company Cosco with which her husband has financial ties.

UPDATE: March 20, 2015

Dianne Feinstein’s husband wins near-billion dollar California ‘high speed rail’ contract.

To the surprise of absolutely no one familiar with the ways of Corruptifornia, the one-party state completely in the hands of the Democrats, a consortium whose lead firm is controlled by Richard Blum, husband of Sen. Diane Feinstein, was awarded a nearly billion-dollar contract for the construction of the first phase of the so-called high-speed rail line to link San Francisco and Los Angeles. Those paying attention to the project call it the “half-fast” rail line because it will share trackage with conventional commuter rail trains in the sprawling Los Angeles and San Francisco areas, lowering its average speed to levels achieved by American railways a century ago.

Crazifornia.com writes:

The Perini-Zachary-Parsons bid was the lowest received from the five consortia participating in the bidding process, but “low” is a relative term. The firms bid $985,142,530 to build the wildly anticipated first section of high speed rail track that will tie the megopolis of Madera to the global finance center of Fresno. Do the division, and you find that the low bid came in at a mere $35 million per mile.

And that doesn’t include the cost of rolling stock (that’s engines and cars to the normal among us). Nor does it include the cost of electrifying the route. Does it at least include the cost of land acquisition? No, it does not.

As this fiasco progress, remember that this $35 million per mile represents the best California can do on the section of track the High on Crack Speed Rail Authority selected to go first because it will be the cheapest.

Tutor-Perini, the lead contractor controlled by Dianne Feinstein’s hubby, has an (ahem) interesting history. From The National Black Chamber of Commerce:

According to the New York US Attorney’s office: “Following a four-week trial, a federal jury in Brooklyn yesterday (March 9, 2011) found Zohrab B. Marashlian, the former president of Perini Corp.’s Civil Division, an international construction services corporation, guilty of fraud and conspiracy to launder money. The charges arose out of Marashlian’s false representation to New York government agencies that Disadvantaged Business Entities (DBE’s) were performing work in connection with major public works contracts, when, in reality, Marashlian had non-disadvantaged businesses favored by Perini Corp. do the work.” Tutor Perini paid Marashlian $14 million in salary while all this was going on. Two days before Marashlian was to receive a multi-year prison sentence he committed suicide. A fellow employee is currently doing a long prison term for the same case.

Perini has been caught doing such things over and over again. They are absolutely ridiculous in California projects. … According to the Seattle News some of the Perini headlines read: “In February, Tutor-Saliba and Perini agreed to pay $19 million to settle racketeering and fraud allegations in a San Francisco airport project.” … “The companies are embroiled in an 11 – year legal battle over $16 million in extra costs on a Los Angeles subway job.”

There is no doubt Dianne Feinstein and her husband are self serving traitors, especially in the world of high-speed rail that is sure to cost at least twice what it is budgeted at (just south of a hundred billion dollars), take five hours for a journey that takes an hour or so by air, and which will have to charge much more than airlines do for the trip.

George Walker Bush

George Walker Bush is a traitor.

George Walker Bush is a traitor.

George Walker Bush, the 43rd President of the United States is a traitor.

1) George W. Bush admitted to ordering the National Security Agency to conduct electronic surveillance of American civilians without seeking warrants from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review, duly constituted by Congress in 1978, in violation of Title 50 United States Code, Section 1805.

2) George W. Bush intentionally misled the Congress and the public regarding the threat from Iraq in order to justify a war against Iraq, intentionally conspired with others to defraud the United States in connection with the war against Iraq in violation of Title 18 United States Code, Section 371.

In the process, it has been calculated by the Center for Public Integrity and the Fund for Independence in Journalism, two non-profit making journalistic watchdog Organizations, that Bush and the members of his regime lied no more than 532 times, “in an orchestrated campaign to effectively galvanise public opinion, and in so doing, take the nation to war based upon false pretexts”.

3) George W. Bush failed to provide US soldiers with bulletproof vests or appropriately armored vehicles. A recent Pentagon study disclosed that proper bulletproof vests would have saved hundreds of lives. Furthermore, as the Downing Street memo revealed, they had no serious plan for the aftermath of the war. President Bush demonstrated a complete disregard for the welfare of the troops and an utter indifference to the need for proper governance of a country after occupation. The result has been a war that has cost U.S. taxpayers at least $757.8 billion with 6,648 U.S. soldiers killed and over 32,000 wounded.

4) George W. Bush conspired to commit the torture of prisoners in violation of the “Federal Torture Act” Title 18 United States Code, Section 113C, the UN Torture Convention and the Geneva Convention, which under Article VI of the Constitution are part of the “supreme Law of the Land.

In addition, George W. Bush enters history as the President who did his best to flout constitutional, federal and international law; deride the international community, and created the conditions for the catastrophic economic meltdown which cost the livelihoods of millions of American citizens.

It should be further remembered George W. Bush said, “I don’t give a goddamn. I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way. . . Stop throwing the Constitution in my face. It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”

The fact that on his farewell speech he could claim that he can look in the mirror and feel great about himself is a telling and revealing statement that here is one callous, arrogant and self-opinionated bigot who served only as the most classic example to highlight all the evils which his enemies had levelled at the United States of America.

Mark Peter Begich

Mark Begich is a patriot.

Mark Peter Begich is a United States Senator from Alaska and a member of the Democratic Party is a patriot.

Mark Begich strongly supports the right to bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and protected by the Alaska Constitution.

Mark Begich is a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association, owns firearms and was one of the first Anchorage citizens to obtain a concealed weapons permit when it was required. Most recently, Mark applauded the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the District of Columbia’s 32-year-old ban on handguns.

Mark Begich is a corporate member of the Association of the United States Army, a member of the Air Force Association and a life member of the National Rifle Association.

Mark Begich voted YES on allowing firearms in checked baggage on Amtrak trains. The amendment ensured that gun owners and sportsmen are able to transport securely firearms aboard Amtrak trains in checked baggage, a practice that is done thousands of times a day at airports across the country.

Mark Begich signed H.R.197&S.845, that establishes a national standard for the carrying of concealed firearms (other than a machinegun or destructive device) by non-residents. Authorizes a person who has a valid permit to carry a concealed firearm in one state and who is not prohibited from carrying a firearm under federal law to carry a concealed firearm in another state.

Mark Begich sponsored the Firearms Interstate Commerce Reform Act, allow licensed firearms dealers to sell or deliver any firearm (currently, rifles or shotguns) to any state if the licensee meets with the purchaser and the transaction complies with the laws of the state in which the transfer is conducted and the purchaser’s state of residence; and eliminate the requirement that a licensee must conduct business at a gun show only in the state that is specified on the licensee’s license.

Mark Begich co-sponsored Veterans’ Heritage Firearms Act;

    * Provides a 90-day amnesty period during which veterans and their family members can register in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record any firearm acquired before October 31, 1968, by a veteran while a member of the Armed Forces stationed outside the continental United States.

    * Grants such an individual limited immunity with respect to the acquisition, possession, transportation, or alteration of such firearm before or concurrent with such registration.

    * Extends such immunity to a veteran who attempts to register a qualifying firearm outside of the amnesty period if the veteran surrenders the firearm within 30 days after being notified of potential criminal liability for continued possession.

    * Transfers each firearm qualifying as a curio or relic which has been forfeited to the United States to the first qualified museum that requests it Publishes information identifying each such firearm which is available to be transferred to a museum.

    * Makes a prohibition against transfer or possession of a machine-gun inapplicable to museums.

Mark Begich signed the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, it amends the federal criminal code to provide for reciprocity for the carrying of certain concealed firearms in different states by persons who are not prohibited by federal law from possessing, transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm and who are carrying a valid state license or permit for carrying a concealed firearm; or otherwise entitled to carry a concealed firearm in their state of residence.

Mark Begich, who faces re-election in 2014, ignored Obama and the outright lies from supporters by voting against universal background checks in gun purchases. Despite leftist blathering to the contrary, the ballyhooed background checks expansion would have created a de facto national gun registry, long the dream of those whose ultimate goal is confiscation.

We should all give thanks Mark Begich stood up for what is right. This was a noble act in defending the U.S. Constitution, for he was one of four democrats with the courage to do so.

UPDATE: June 29, 2013

Mark Begich has since voted in favor of gay marriage, and to give amnesty to illegal immigrants. Although most Americans dislike how he voted on both of these issues, they’re not in direct violation of the United States Constitution. Therefore Mark Begich is still considered a patriot even-though he is now hated by many of his constituents.

UPDATE: November 4, 2014

Mark Peter Begich lost in the Alaska Senate election of November 2014.
