Recent Tenth Amendment, Nullification, Wins

These are from recent Tenth Amendment Center Newsletters. Wow! The states are finally telling the federal government with their Constitutionally UNauthorized grabs for power and control to "Piss off" (says it best?).

Signed by the Governor: Colorado Bill Takes on Federal Asset Forfeiture Loophole
In most situations, passage of HB1313 slams closed a federal loophole that allowed state and local police to get around more strict state asset forfeiture laws.

New Maine Law Prohibits State Gun Registries
Maine Gov. Paul LePage signed a bill into law prohibiting any type of state firearms registry. The law will not only protect the privacy of Maine gun owners, it will also hinder the federal government’s ability to develop a firearms database and create a climate less favorable to federal gun control.

Signed as Law: Nevada Legalizes Commercial Hemp Production, Despite Federal Prohibition
Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval signed a bill into law to legalize commercial industrial hemp production in the state, despite a federal ban on the same. Passage into law sets the foundation to nullify federal prohibition in practice and effect within the state.

New Hampshire Passes Bill to Prohibit Warrantless Stingray Spying
The New Hampshire House gave final approval to a bill that would ban the use of “stingrays” to track the location of phones and sweep up electronic communications without a warrant in most situations. The proposed law would not only protect privacy in New Hampshire, but would also hinder one aspect of the federal surveillance state.

To the Governor: Louisiana Bill Would Encourage Use of Gold and Silver as Money
The Louisiana legislature passed a bill that would exempt the sale and purchase of gold and silver from state sales and use taxes, encouraging their use and taking the first step toward breaking the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money.

Signed By the Governor: Maryland Right to Try Act Rejects Some FDA Restrictions on Terminal Patients
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan signed a bill into law that sets the foundation to nullify in practice some Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules that deny access to experimental treatments by terminally ill patients.

Good Will Hunting Quote

I just saw the movie Good Will Hunting (1997) for the first time last night. An excellent movie, on many levels, that I can easily recommend. There was one scene and quote in the movie that inspired this blog. Will Hunting(Matt Damon), the main character in the movie, was at a job interview with the NSA. Will was asked if he could come up with one reason NOT to work for, take the job with, the NSA. Will came up with dozens of reasons.

Why shouldn't I work for the N.S.A.? That's a tough one, but I'll take a shot. Say I'm working at N.S.A. Somebody puts a code on my desk, something nobody else can break. Maybe I take a shot at it and maybe I break it. And I'm real happy with myself, 'cause I did my job well. But maybe that code was the location of some rebel army in North Africa or the Middle East. Once they have that location, they bomb the village where the rebels were hiding and fifteen hundred people I never met, never had no problem with, get killed. Now the politicians are sayin', "Oh, send in the Marines to secure the area" 'cause they don't give a shit. It won't be their kid over there, gettin' shot. Just like it wasn't them when their number got called, 'cause they were pullin' a tour in the National Guard. It'll be some kid from Southie takin' shrapnel in the ass. And he comes back to find that the plant he used to work at got exported to the country he just got back from. And the guy who put the shrapnel in his ass got his old job, 'cause he'll work for fifteen cents a day and no bathroom breaks. Meanwhile, he realizes the only reason he was over there in the first place was so we could install a government that would sell us oil at a good price. And, of course, the oil companies used the skirmish over there to scare up domestic oil prices. A cute little ancillary benefit for them, but it ain't helping my buddy at two-fifty a gallon. And they're takin' their sweet time bringin' the oil back, of course, and maybe even took the liberty of hiring an alcoholic skipper who likes to drink martinis and fuckin' play slalom with the icebergs, and it ain't too long 'til he hits one, spills the oil and kills all the sea life in the North Atlantic. So now my buddy's out of work and he can't afford to drive, so he's got to walk to the fuckin' job interviews, which sucks 'cause the shrapnel in his ass is givin' him chronic hemorrhoids. And meanwhile he's starvin', 'cause every time he tries to get a bite to eat, the only blue plate special they're servin' is North Atlantic scrod with Quaker State. So what did I think? I'm holdin' out for somethin' better. I figure fuck it, while I'm at it why not just shoot my buddy, take his job, give it to his sworn enemy, hike up gas prices, bomb a village, club a baby seal, hit the hash pipe and join the National Guard? I could be elected president.

- Will Hunting, Good Will Hunting

I thought it was a pretty good take of it all. The absurdity.. the insanity.. the tragic human costs.. etc. From a government and system that is supposed to be representing and protecting the people??!! It was worth repeating here. Read it well.

Imagine also refusing to take a job based on principal. Help you hurt us? No thanks.

The Matrix: Do You See It Too?

The Matrix's are truly amazing. Both the movies and the real life one that we all here around the world are caught up in. That's right.. ALL! One way or another it can not be avoided the Matrix will affect you also. It doesn't matter if you are in it or out of it. And it doesn't even matter if you are completely oblivious to it you will still, definitely in that case, be affected by it!

Back in the late 60's I just loved the popular question thrown around at the time "Do you see it too?" Many times it was just humor but many times also it had a very valid point for being asked. Is it just me or are you with me on this one?

The Matrix is basically one big reality deception. It sure looks good. Sure sounds good. It even feels and smells good. Wonderful even. And a lot of times it can actually make sense! The problem is that it is all an illusion masterfully constructed for easy viewer consumption and belief. The entire purpose being nothing more than parasitic control of the public. Get them to believe and do what you want them to believe and do for profit, power and control. Reality and truth, of course, are counter productive to that purpose. Sadly they have been doing this to the public for millennia.

Have you ever stood and stared at it, marveled at its beauty, its genius? Billions of people just living out their lives, oblivious.

- Agent Smith, The Matrix I

Got Meds? Do You Even Know What They Do?

In today's modern medicine world it seems every and all medical problems require the heavy application of lots of pills. Things like diet and nutrition rarely come into conversation and in fact your doctor may know very little about that. But rest assured just about every time you open your mouth in a doctors office a pill will be prescribed!

It's just business you understand?

Don't get me wrong some pills can do some pretty amazing things and truly hold there place in the medical arsenal. But, again in today's medical world of its all about selling pills, many are prescribed that have no place nor should they be part of the medical arsenal. The negative side effects can often outweigh the positive effects of said bogus pills.

How can this be when we have the FDA protecting us from bogus pills?

Yeah.. Ok... If you ask me the FDA has become nothing more than a big pharma marketing device. Google "FDA Revolving Door" to learn real quick how corporate big pharma is actually running the FDA. Understand if corporate big pharma pushes pills on its own most people will recognize it right away for what it is.. snake oil.. doctor feel good. But when said doctor feel good snake oil has been endorsed by the FDA well there you go it must really be medicine I'll buy it!

It gets even worse..

BREAKING: Judge Rules DAPL Needs Environmental Review

This is a newsletter I got a few days ago from the Lakota People's Law Project(LPLP).

Dear Trebor,

We just received breaking news that US District Court Judge James Boasberg ruled that the environmental review of the controversial Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL) was insufficient and must be reconsidered.

Your persistence and dedication to this cause over the past few months paved the way for this important decision, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Now, you can ensure that our movement to stop this pipeline and defend the rights of water protectors moves forward with strength by making a donation today.

After many defeats on the #NoDAPL front, we are beginning to see rays of hope that the Trump Administration/oil industry alliance can be unraveled. Judge Boasberg’s decision comes on the heels of explosive revelations published by investigative reporters from The Intercept. They shed light on wartime tactics employed by pipeline security painting our #NoDAPL movement as a dangerous insurgency and branding water protectors as criminals and terrorists. Leaked documents show that the Blackwater-style paramilitary firm TigerSwan, Inc. surveilled the members of our movement, stole equipment from our camps, spread disinformation online, and framed water protectors by torching cars and blaming their actions on us.

Make no mistake: Our country is under attack from within. You can be part of the movement to expose the corporate-sponsored, state-executed violence at Standing Rock by donating to our legal defense fund today.

My people have been here for thousands of years, but this land does not belong only to us. It is your homeland too. I hope you will create a respect relationship with the rivers and creeks and streams that flow through this beautiful nation and never fail to stand strong in her defense.

Wopila—I thank you for your care and support at this crucial time in our nation's history.

Chase Iron Eyes
Lakota Law lead counsel

P.S. Today’s ruling is a beacon of hope, as nothing less than the fabric—the heart and soul of our very democracy—is at stake. You can stand with us as our resistance continues in the courts. Our battle for water has become the defense of freedom. Join us by donating to our legal defense fund today. It is imperative that we act together. We cannot do this without you.

Is this how things work now? The DAPL was completed regardless of insufficient environmental reviews? Why do we have, or even bother with, these laws if they do not need to be adhered to?

Congratulations LPLP for this is a victory.
