Information on the Middle East crisis that you won’t get from the press

Filed under: evil,freedom,political,religion — daveposh @ 1:16 am

This is a transcription of the Glenn Beck show on TheBlaze TV from Thursday, 9/13/2012.

(If you subscribe to TheBlaze TV or TheBlaze TV Plus, you can watch the show on the internet. Also, TheBlaze TV is now on Dish Network, channel 212.)

[Glenn]
I’m going to introduce you to the panelists.
Danny Danon, he is the Deputy speaker of the Israeli Knesset and he stayed here late to be part of the broadcast tonight. I thank you Danny.

[Danny]
Thank you Glenn.

[Glenn]
He is also the author of “Israel: The Will to Prevail”.

Andy McCarthy is here, he is a former federal prosecutor best known for going after the blind Sheik after the World Trade Center bombing in 1993.

We have Richard Poe, author of “The Shadow Party: Hillary Clinton, George Soros and the 60’s radicals and how they seized control of the Democratic Party”, a book you have to read.

Then we have Steve Coughlin, he’s a former Pentagon Islam specialist, and from Washington DC, we have congressman Louie Gohmert, who has called for the US to cut all funding in Egypt and Libya.

I’ve got 5 questions and I just want you guys to come on in however you want. The first one is: I don’t think this is an attack because of some stupid film, I don’t buy that for a second. What this is is a coordinated attack on our Constitution and Freedom of Speech. I think this goes back to the Muslim Brotherhood directive, of the “Project”, of saying get international laws to be passed so no one can say anything bad about Islam because then we choke them to death. Anybody believe in that?

[Steve]
I would like to take it one step further. I think to understand that the Muslim Brotherhood for about 20 years of them working in parallel with an organization called the “Organization of the Islamic Conference”, which is now the “Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)“, and it represents all the Islamic states at a state level. In 2005, they passed something called the 10 year program of action, that they called for making it illegal to violate Islamic slander law everywhere in the world, including the United States. When you see the Muslim Brotherhood engage in this activity they’re actually implementing it in furtherance of actual state power.

So, for example, what happened is the IIIT (International Institute of Islamic Thought) in the late 80’s created the term, they saw how well the word homophobia worked, and they coined the term islamophobia, to work for just that reason. And then what they did, is they basically treated it like a brand.  Actually they gave it to the OIC who treats it as a brand.

You can go and Google and you can find every year the OIC, that’s an entity  that represents the heads of states of 57 member states, OK, and you can see that they’re saying here’s how we’re going to get people to respond to it. Now, what you see in parallel, in triplicate really, when the Muslim Brotherhood is governing a country that is a member of the OIC, you see a complete synchronicity between what the Muslim Brotherhood agenda is and what the OIC agenda is.  And so what happens is you see is the 10 year program of action in our world, the term you see is Islamophobia. But taking it one step further, you find that inside the government, that they have created the term called violent extremism, and in the countering the violent extremism narrative, and who helped the HS create this narrative, it was the Muslim Brotherhood.

[Glenn]
Anything on the movie that comes up?

[Andy]
I think you’re exactly right about the move. The agenda of the blind Sheik comes up at least as much as the movie does.

[Glenn}
I think our president will do. I think he’ll use a crisis like this to say “We’re going to make peace and release the blind Sheik.” Disagree?

[Andy]
No. I think in that in that 10 week period, certainly between the election and the inauguration, no matter who wins, I think there’s a very real possibility Obama will do that.

[Glenn]
Is George Soros involved, does this have… I thought about this this morning, about that piece you did for us almost a year ago now. I remember the stages of overthrowing a government, and we’re there, well it’s not exactly the way it always happens, this seems to me to be the beginning of some sort of crisis that does not lead to any place good.

[Richard]
Well, I would agree I mean it seems to me that the whole Arab Spring process, as you pointed out, it follows the pattern of the culture revolutions we’re seeing all over the world. And of course, Mr. Soros is not solely responsible for these global activities. He works with governments, he works with intelligence agencies, including our own. I think it’s very important to understand that because when the Arab Spring happened, it wasn’t clear, it wasn’t as if all conservatives were against it or leftists were for it people didn’t know what to think, in large part. And, it was because it was about democracy and so forth, and government was supporting it.

And not just the politicians in the Obama administration, but the so called permanent government, the bureaucracies, the State Department, the CIA, and so forth. And the think tanks. Soros is part of that network, he’s an integral part of it and he’s a valuable part of it. But it’s really our own governments, and more than our government, I think in this case, in north Africa this is really this sphere of influence of the European Union. At least the Europeans see it that way.

It’s interesting to me that Mr. Soros back in 2007 formed a group in Europe called the European Council on Foreign Relations and he announced at that time that he was doing this because he was giving up on United States. He said the U.S. can no longer provide world leadership for all these reasons he thinks and he believes the EU is now the power of the future. And if you look at that organization they’re all European heads of state, so all the top of the heap who are with him in that.  And I believe it’s really the EU that is doing this Arab Spring movement. It’s part of their neo-colonial policy.

[Glenn]
Danny, do you believe that Iran is involved and a follow-up question, what I said in the opening monologue about, if I had a friend, and everybody is trying to set me on fire all around and I was in my moment of crisis and my friend said, “Ah, busy, I got to go on David Letterman”. I don’t think I would consider them a friend.

[Danny]
Again, we live in a very tough neighborhood and you forgot about 911. And I think when you wake up and see the pictures, you ask why. Don’t ask why, there’s no reasoning. When you deal with the radical Muslim forces, don’t ask for logic.

And yes when we see President Obama making all the mistakes. He went in 2009 in June to Cairo. He gave a very long speech. In the Arab world, people saw it as a weakness. And today, we in Israel are paying for that weakness, and you are starting to pay for that. And when we look at Iran becoming nuclear, and we know we have to act, it could be today, tomorrow, in 4 months. And we want to ask President Obama, what is your plans, what do you want to do with that. He’s telling our Prime Minister, “I cannot meet you”. I think he’s afraid for the meeting, because Prime Minister Netanyahu will ask him, “until when do you want us to wait?”. He is telling us “hold your horses”, but until when? What are you going to do?

[Glenn]
I’ve got to go a step further, because I know you won’t. I think President Obama despises Benjamin Netanyahu. You can watch it in his body language, I think he has a real problem with the state of Israel. He has the same kind of colonialism, uh, anti-colonialist viewpoint against Great Britain. I mean…

[Danny]
Glenn, there was an open mic when President Obama was in France, we heard it in Israel, we heard it in Jerusalem, but the interest of the United States of America are much stronger, whether he likes Prime Minister Netanyahu, or he doesn’t like him, and today, the only ally of United States of America, the only embassy today that doesn’t have alert is embassy in Tel Aviv. We don’t feel like partner. We are in the same boat, but we have no one fighting with us against Iran.

In another day the American people are with us. Some people telling me, “don’t worry, the American people support you”, but people in the White House decided to ignore. But when you ignore something evil like that, it is coming to your shores.

[Glenn]
Oh, yes it will.
Let me go to Louie Gohmert, because I know you have to get to a vote on pulling the funds from Egypt. May I suggest congressman, that we should be closing are embassies in any country that doesn’t, will not protect or not stand with us on the protection of our soil and we should cut all of the funding, cut it.

[Louie]
You’re exactly right, cut the funding, and of course to me, with the U.N. complicit in these Arab Spring states, I think cut the funding to the U.N. until they start showing there going to be helpful and protective of nations like the U.S. and Israel instead of always…

[Glenn]
Congressman, you were one of the good guys on Capitol Hill, and you are …

[Louie]
One of the frustrated guys.

[Glenn]
I know you are, but you might as well be at Julie Andrews in Sound of Music singing beautiful songs to me right now but can you get enough people in Washington to actually do that? Because I think the American people will support you. The press won’t and the left won’t, but the American people will.

[Louie]
Well, we’re about to vote on continuing resolution that will put the last nail in the coffin for these two years, the biggest wave election since the 30’s. We had 87 fantastic freshmen come in, so many got co-opted. Many have learned and are coming around, but Glenn, this will mean we’re just continuing business as usual. We haven’t cut anything for two years, we haven’t used the leverage we coulda had, and I tell you it does get confusing, you know, when Steve is talking about the Organization of Islamic Conference… I forget, do they have 50 states and we have 57, or do we have 57.. I forget, I get really confused about that, but none the less, they’re the ones that did create the term Islamophobe. I’m called Islamophobe, never mind the fact I go to Afghanistan and I’m told I’m risking my life to meet with our old allies that fought the Taliban for us and defeated them in four months with our embedded help and with air support, which we could do again, but we’ve thrown them under the bus.

I mean, who would want to be our ally right now, Glenn. I mean, we’ve thrown Israel under the bus. We’ve thrown the Northern Alliance that fought for us, and we’re negotiating with the Taliban.

It looks like if you want to just objectively stand back, the best place to be is America’s enemy because we’ll rush in and give you money, we’ll give you weapons, we’ll help, and I don’t know… We’ve been trying to get a confirmation of the Breitbart story earlier that in the Cairo embassy our military had been instructed not to carry live rounds, it might be provocative…

[Glenn]
You don’t need to check that. Of course that’s true. We need to remind you of Beirut?

[Louie}
How many lessons do we have to learn? But it was nice of Obama to take a minute and a half out of the busy fundraising and campaigning to actually say, “Hey, we’ve had a tough week”. These are people that are in harm’s way for us and you’re exactly right. Close the embassy, cut off every dime, you don’t have to pay people to hate you, they’ll do it for free…

[Glenn}
I have to take a break, and you have to take a vote, so just let me ask this one question. Can you get that vote through? Cut the aid…

[Louie]
The only we we’re going to be able to…  I’m going to go over here in just a minute and vote against the continuing resolution. And they’ve got the votes, they’re going to do it, they don’t care about people like me. But I’m hopeful, we’ve got friends in the Senate, that they’re going to be able to put a stop on the CR, until we can get that provision in. They’ll force it back to the house, then we get that provision in. America ought to be screaming for that. Glenn, I am so grateful. I loved being at the Restore Honor, I was going to be at the Restore Courage until Boehner cancelled the trip, loved the event in Dallas. You are helping wake people up. But thank you, and I hope that if we can get just a handful of Senators to stand strong, we can stop the CR in the Senate, force them to put that provision in…

[Glenn]
Congressman, we’ll have you on radio tomorrow, if you don’t mind. You make the pitch on who we should call and we’ll take care of it tomorrow on radio.

[Glenn]
OK, here is my plan and I’d like to get your.. because it I’m afraid were being set up and that we’re being pushed down a road that is exactly the wrong road, and the President whenever he takes his time on something it’s usually very bad for America. He took his time on Iran, “Hey, I didn’t have time for two weeks to talk about those uprising.” When it’s bad for America, he’s right there.

So I’m afraid the American people are not going to know what to do so let me propose a solution here. Or a step.  Close all embassies that won’t be protected, that the country says, “we can’t guarantee your safety.” Fine. Out. Cut all the aids to the to those countries that won’t stand with us and strongly come against these people. A very strong statement on Israel. We can’t help you but we should stand behind you because we know who the good guys are and who the bad guys are.

And then, most controversial, I don’t know about this table, pull all of our troops out of Afghanistan. And rest, reload and prepare, because something bad is coming. Any comments on that?

[Andy]
I think we should have been out of Afghanistan long ago. Our guys are sitting ducks there, they’re not doing anything that advances on national security. They haven’t been, really for a number of years now. We should have a minimal amount of involvement that they’ll all say that they can protect us, right.  I think maybe our test ought to be any place where the Marines can’t have live ammunition, we should be there.

From what Louis Gomez says it sounds like to arm the Marines, Obama just gave $1.5 billion to the Egyptian military. Maybe they can get armed from the Egyptian military since we’re not going to get it from the American President.
Let me say one other thing. I think there is a logic to what was done by the Muslim Brotherhood with respect to this latest round of mayhem.

The Obama administration has been on a Jihad of sorts, since 2009 against the First Amendment. They have been proposing these resolutions, Steve talked about the OIC, they’ve been proposing this in conjunction with the OIC since 2009. I actually think one of the most disheartening, almost  downright cowardly things, that happened in the last 48 hours, is when the State Department issued that atrocious statement, the Obama administration tried to walk it back. Glenn, if you look at that statement, that is a statement of Obama administration policy, going back to 2009. The embassy in Egypt in Cairo didn’t do anything other than put out what has been the Obama administration’s position for three years. But what they have done here is, they have been encouraged by Obama to think that he will stand with their version of Sharia suppression rather than our version of the First Amendment. For them, this is the low hanging fruit.
This was a real opportunity to grab this and that’s exactly what they’re trying to do and they’re making a big point. I think that’s exactly what they’re doing.

[Danny]
There have been people in the State Department telling us “Egypt is a strong ally. We should support Egypt, and not only Israel. And look what’s happening today. You’re giving Egypt hundreds of millions of dollars, German submarines. What will they do with those submarines? The Muslim Brotherhood, what will they do? They will use it to protect their area, or to attack Israel eventually. Or maybe the United States of America. And I think some people have to wake up in the United States. We woke up. We tried…

[Glenn]
The Americans are awake. It our administration and those people in Washington that are dead-asleep, or worse, they’re wide awake and they’re on the wrong side.

[Danny]
You know, I was in New York City during the commemoration of 911 two days ago. And people were speaking about it. It can happen again. You say when Iran become nuclear, nobody guarantees that the first attack will be against Israel. It can be here in New York City again. And I think some people in Washington want you to forget about it. Forget about the risk. Forget about the hatred. Listen to Ahmadinejad, he’s coming to New York City in two weeks’ time. He will speak in the U.N., two blocks from you again. But what will he be saying there? “I want to wipe out Israel. ????? But after that I’m going after the U.S.” And you’re funding the U.N. allowing him to come to the U.S. again. You should tell the U.N., “Ahmadinejad will not speak here in two weeks’ time. He is not welcome here.” It’s like before the second World War. If Hitler were to come to the U.S. you’d have opened the door for him. It’s very similar to what we see here.

[Glenn]
We’re throwing the doors open on the holiest day of the year, too, for the Jewish community. Anybody have any comment on, Is Iran involved in any of this, are they pulling the strings. I read an intelligence report from U.S. intelligence that Iran and Egypt are starting to coordinate their intelligence.

[Steve]
I would be very suspicious about that. I think that the focal point you should use to look at that is Syria. And right now you basically have the Assad government being backed by the Iranians and you have the resistance which basically the Muslim Brotherhood, so long as they’re barely engaged in the dispute there, on opposite sides. I would be very skeptical of what I’m reading about the role of Iran…

[Glenn]
What should we be looking for. As American people, what are we missing? What is the thing that people who are watching this say. I should go investigate this on my own. or I should look for these signs in the coming days. What are we looking for?

[Richard]
I would opine again, that I think it’s very important. I agree with you that we should pull out U.S. military forces from these contested areas, especially in Egypt and Libya and so forth, and north Africa. I think the American people need to understand that the Muslims would not be capable of doing what they’re doing if they did not have money and support from the European Union, and that’s why I think we should pull out our troops and we should say, “if you want troops to patrol there, to the European nations put YOUR troops on the ground. They have money, they have troops…

[Glenn]
We saw this in Thomas Jefferson’s time. They don’t do well.

[Richard]
Well, true, but…

[Glenn]
Don’t get me wrong, neither are we…

[Richard]
It’s a situation of their own creation and I think Americans need to understand that better. The European Union actually has a policy called the “Neighborhood Policy” dealing with the neighbors of Europe and part of this  policy is to mold the countries of North Africa and the Middle East and to elevate and develop them in such a way to prepare them to be incorporated into the European Union. They call this the Neighborhood Policy. It is aimed toward incorporating North Africa into the European Union and I believe this whole Arab Spring campaign is part of that European agenda and I think that Americans have been enlisted to serve as the muscle to implement what is really a European policy primarily for their benefit so they can get control over energy resources that they need very desperately and which we do not need as desperately.

[Danny]
Iran is also a source of evil. Let’s not ignore it. Look at Hezbollah and Lebanon, it’s being funded by Iran. Look at the Hamas in Gaza, they are being funded by Iran. The only organization that condemned the killing of Osama bin Laden was the Hamas organization. So they have links and give a lot of money to whoever wants to hurt the U.S. and Israel and the Jewish people. When you look at the terror attack that happened in South America, and two months ago in Europe, it was coming from Iran. They’re doing it smartly, they’re using their embassies, they’re using the money that they have, but they are behind a lot of things that are happening here.

[Andy]
Turkey is also funding Hamas. Our NATO ally.

[Glenn]
And our President’s good friend.

[Andy]
You asked what should people be looking for in the next days. I would say, “don’t be overwhelmed by all this chatter about democracy. There’s been too much of that.

What’s going on in that region is the use of the electoral process as a tool not the culture of democracy and when they say democracy, what they mean is route to power to impose Sharia. That’s the process they are about, and every time they say democracy, we ought to be thinking Sharia. If we could get people to make that connection, we’d be about 50 yards beyond where we are now.

[Steve]
In 1990 the Organization of Islamic Conference on behalf of all their 57 member states created something called the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights of Islam, that they formally served United Nations in 1993 saying that when we, an Islamic entity, use the words “human rights”, we mean, and only mean Sharia law. When you take a look at the Muslim Brotherhood party in Egypt, it’s the Freedom and Justice Party. That means freedom from the laws of man and justice according to Islamic law.

[Glenn]
OK. I want to thank you guys, and Danny, I know you got to go back to Israel.  You send a message to everybody you see: We are not our government. There are millions of Americans that stand behind Israel. There are millions of Americans that know that this is crazy.

[Danny]
You need to come again to Jerusalem, Glenn, say it again to the people.

[Glenn]
As I said to you, I know there’s something that we’re putting up on the internet here, an interview that we did earlier, and I don’t know if I said this on the air or in person, but if Barack Obama wins again, I am coming back to Jerusalem before Christmas and I may bring moving boxes with me. We’ll be back in just a second.

[Glenn]
We’re just talking in this break about Mitt Romney and President Obama, and you just said about a war in the Middle East, how good it would be for the President

[Richard]
Certainly because Americans rally round the flag and rally around the Commander-in-chief in times of war, we’re famous for that. The Democrats saw what it did for Bush after 911, I’m sure they would like to get that experience for themselves.

[Glenn]
Isn’t that interesting that that’s all they talked about it at the DNC. They didn’t talk about the economy and everything else. All they talked about is his foreign prowess, and no one will, no one’s going to say, cause the press, they’re not going to say, “you caused this problem, you encouraged this problem, you were the one sprinkling the seeds everywhere on this problem.”  But you have a press that’s coming out, they’re making Mitt Romney the problem. How does this affect the election, and can Romney win this election with the press as “in the bag”, as this one is, when you have something this obvious.

[Andy]
I think he can if he gets out of Washington and gets his ears out of Washington. I had a very interesting last night. I gave a speech in a place where there were a lot of ordinary New Yorkers.

[Glenn]
There’s no such thing as ordinary New Yorkers.

[Andy]
Well, as ordinary as we get, but they thought it was Romney’s finest hour, his reaction to what happened at the State Department and what happened in the Middle East. So the further away you get from Washington… That’s why I’m not even so sure about the war in the Middle East. Have we ever had a war where we jumped in on the wrong side?

[Richard]
I would say that I feel Romney may be stepping into a trap, because I believe Obama is going to hit them very hard, is going to hit Libya and maybe Egypt hard militarily.

[Glenn]
But here’s the problem with that. Americans are not the same as they were in 2004 or 2006. We’re war fatigued, we are wasting our brothers, our nephews. We’re wasting their life right now and most Americans are saying, “for what, for what are we doing”. Ask the average American, “why are we in Afghanistan?” They can’t tell you anymore. I think that it actually could backfire on the President because guys who were usually for war, they won’t be for this one. They won’t be for it.

[Steve]
These days of rage are calculated, planned out events, that come at the state level, and I think if the things tomorrow happen as they could, and you never know cause they sometimes fizzle out. You’re going to see the potential for things exploding all over the place. It’s very real. I think that if that happens, the total gap between what people know what’s going on the Middle East and how it’s being reported might be enough to take something over the top.

[Danny]
… the U.S. ever sent troops to Israel. Do you know why is that? Because when you support the right side, in time, you don’t have to send troops anywhere. But when you don’t make decisions, then you have to send troops…

[Glenn]
I’ve got news for you. The only country that, I think, will do the right thing and take care of it, until Barack Obama leaves, is Israel. I think you guys, you get it, Benjamin Netanyahu is tough as nails, you guys are ready. I don’t care what the President says, or anybody else. Know the American people, a good number of them, understand what you are doing. Don’t count on us for help, but we understand what’s going down. Back in a minute. Thank you guys.

Obama’s legacy

Filed under: freedom,liberty,political — daveposh @ 5:37 pm

How is Obama doing in progressing the Implementation Of These Communist Goals?

(see The Communist Takeover Of America – 45 Declared Goals at http://rense.com/general32/americ.htm )

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

The battle is engaged

Filed under: evil,freedom,liberty,religion,sipritual — daveposh @ 9:07 pm

There is a great battle beginning in these times. It is a battle of good versus evil, it is a battle of spirits, a battle of angels and demons. They are not fighting directly, but by proxy, by humans that are either being turned toward evil or turned toward good. Humans have the power to decide. The spirits are attempting to influence humans in their dreams, their unconscious thoughts or desires. Small nudges towards good or evil are subtle and go unnoticed unless the human is aware and watching for these pulls one way or the other, like a slight incline or decline to one side or the other on the path they are proceeding upon.

Internet Executive Order: One Step Closer to Take-over?

Filed under: freedom,liberty,political — daveposh @ 12:59 pm

Here’s the E.O. from June 14, 2012 that may be step one of many towards taking over the internet.
I’ve reviewed it and highlighted phrases that may be worrisome. While reading, keep in mind the popular quote, “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help you.”

The text was taken from the whitehouse website:

For Immediate Release                                                                                      June 14, 2012

Executive Order — Accelerating Broadband Infrastructure Deployment

EXECUTIVE ORDER
– – – – – – –
ACCELERATING BROADBAND INFRASTRUCTURE DEPLOYMENT

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and in order to facilitate broadband deployment on Federal lands, buildings, and rights of way, federally assisted highways, and tribal and individual Indian trust lands (tribal lands), particularly in underserved communities, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. Broadband access is essential to the Nation’s global competitiveness in the 21st century, driving job creation, promoting innovation, and expanding markets for American businesses. Broadband access also affords public safety agencies the opportunity for greater levels of effectiveness and interoperability. While broadband infrastructure has been deployed in a vast majority of communities across the country, today too many areas still lack adequate access to this crucial resource. For these areas, decisions on access to Federal property and rights of way can be essential to the deployment of both wired and wireless broadband infrastructure. The Federal Government controls nearly 30 percent of all land in the United States, owns thousands of buildings, and provides substantial funding for State and local transportation infrastructure, creating significant opportunities for executive departments and agencies (agencies) to help expand broadband infrastructure.

Sec. 2. Broadband Deployment on Federal Property Working Group. (a) In order to ensure a coordinated and consistent approach in implementing agency procedures, requirements, and policies related to access to Federal lands, buildings, and rights of way, federally assisted highways, and tribal lands to advance broadband deployment, there is established a Broadband Deployment on Federal Property Working Group (Working Group), to be co-chaired by representatives designated by the Administrator of General Services and the Secretary of Homeland Security (Co-Chairs) from their respective agencies, in consultation with the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy (Director) and in coordination with the Chief Performance Officer (CPO).

(b) The Working Group shall be composed of:

(i) a representative from each of the following agencies, and the Co-Chairs, all of which have significant ownership of, or responsibility for managing, Federal lands, buildings, and rights of way, federally assisted highways, and tribal lands (Broadband Member Agencies):

(1) the Department of Defense;

(2) the Department of the Interior;

(3) the Department of Agriculture;

(4) the Department of Commerce;

(5) the Department of Transportation;

(6) the Department of Veterans Affairs; and

(7) the United States Postal Service;

(ii) a representative from each of the following agencies or offices, to provide advice and assistance:

(1) the Federal Communications Commission;

(2) the Council on Environmental Quality;

(3) the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation; and

(4) the National Security Staff; and

(iii) representatives from such other agencies or offices as the Co-Chairs may invite to participate.

(c) Within 1 year of the date of this order, the Working Group shall report to the Steering Committee on Federal Infrastructure Permitting and Review Process Improvement, established pursuant to Executive Order 13604 of March 22, 2012 (Improving Performance of Federal Permitting and Review of Infrastructure Projects), on the progress that has been made in implementing the actions mandated by sections 3 through 5 of this order.

Sec. 3. Coordinating Consistent and Efficient Federal Broadband Procedures, Requirements, and Policies. (a) Each Broadband Member Agency, following coordination with other Broadband Member Agencies and interested non-member agencies, shall:

(i) develop and implement a strategy to facilitate the timely and efficient deployment of broadband facilities on Federal lands, buildings, and rights of way, federally assisted highways, and tribal lands, that:

(1) ensures a consistent approach across the Federal Government that facilitates broadband deployment processes and decisions, including by: avoiding duplicative reviews; coordinating review processes; providing clear notice of all application and other requirements; ensuring consistent interpretation and application of all procedures, requirements, and policies; supporting decisions on deployment of broadband service to those living on tribal lands consistent with existing statutes, treaties, and trust responsibilities; and ensuring the public availability of current information on these matters;

(2) where beneficial and appropriate, includes procedures for coordination with State, local, and tribal governments, and other appropriate entities;

(3) is coordinated with appropriate external stakeholders, as determined by each Broadband Member Agency, prior to implementation; and

(4) is provided to the Co-Chairs within 180 days of the date of this order; and

(ii) provide comprehensive and current information on accessing Federal lands, buildings, and rights of way, federally assisted highways, and tribal lands for the deployment of broadband facilities, and develop strategies to increase the usefulness and accessibility of this information, including ensuring such information is available online and in a format that is compatible with appropriate Government websites, such as the Federal Infrastructure Projects Dashboard created pursuant to my memorandum of August 31, 2011 (Speeding Infrastructure Development Through More Efficient and Effective Permitting and Environmental Review).

(b) The activities conducted pursuant to subsection (a) of this section, particularly with respect to the establishment of timelines for permitting and review processes, shall be consistent with Executive Order 13604 and with the Federal Plan and Agency Plans to be developed pursuant to that order.

(c) The Co-Chairs, in consultation with the Director and in coordination with the CPO, shall coordinate, review, and monitor the development and implementation of the strategies required by paragraph (a)(i) of this section.

(d) Broadband Member Agencies may limit the information made available pursuant to paragraph (a)(ii) of this section as appropriate to accommodate national security, public safety, and privacy concerns.

Sec. 4. Contracts, Applications, and Permits. (a) Section 6409 of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (Public Law 112-96) contains provisions addressing access to Federal property for the deployment of wireless broadband facilities, including requirements that the General Services Administration (GSA) develop application forms, master contracts, and fees for such access. The GSA shall consult with the Working Group in developing these application forms, master contracts, and fees.

(b) To the extent not already addressed by section 6409, each Broadband Member Agency with responsibility for managing Federal lands, buildings, or rights of way (as determined by the Co-Chairs) shall, in coordination with the Working Group and within 1 year of the date of this order, develop and use one or more templates for uniform contract, application, and permit terms to facilitate nongovernment entities’ use of Federal property for the deployment of broadband facilities. The templates shall, where appropriate, allow for access by multiple broadband service providers and public safety entities. To ensure a consistent approach across the Federal Government and different broadband technologies, the templates shall, to the extent practicable and efficient, provide equal access to Federal property for the deployment of wireline and wireless facilities.

Sec. 5. Deployment of Conduit for Broadband Facilities in Conjunction with Federal or Federally Assisted Highway Construction. (a) The installation of underground fiber conduit along highway and roadway rights of way can improve traffic flow and safety through implementation of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and reduce the cost of future broadband deployment. Accordingly, within 1 year of the date of this order:

(i) the Department of Transportation, in consultation with the Working Group, shall review dig once requirements in its existing programs and implement a flexible set of best practices that can accommodate changes in broadband technology and minimize excavations consistent with competitive broadband deployment;

(ii) the Department of Transportation shall work with State and local governments to help them develop and implement best practices on such matters as establishing dig once requirements, effectively using private investment in State ITS infrastructure, determining fair market value for rights of way on federally assisted highways, and reestablishing any highway assets disturbed by installation;

(iii) the Department of the Interior and other Broadband Member Agencies with responsibility for federally owned highways and rights of way on tribal lands (as determined by the Co-Chairs) shall revise their procedures, requirements, and policies to include the use of dig once requirements and similar policies to encourage the deployment of broadband infrastructure in conjunction with Federal highway construction, as well as to provide for the reestablishment of any highway assets disturbed by installation;

(iv) the Department of Transportation, after outreach to relevant nonfederal stakeholders, shall review and, if necessary, revise its guidance to State departments of transportation on allowing for-profit or other entities to accommodate or construct, safely and securely maintain, and utilize broadband facilities on State and locally owned rights of way in order to reflect changes in broadband technologies and markets and to promote competitive broadband infrastructure deployment; and

(v) the Department of Transportation, in consultation with the Working Group and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, shall create an online platform that States and counties may use to aggregate and make publicly available their rights of way laws and joint occupancy guidelines and agreements.

(b) For the purposes of this section, the term “dig once requirements” means requirements designed to reduce the number and scale of repeated excavations for the installation and maintenance of broadband facilities in rights of way.

Sec. 6. General Provisions. (a) This order shall be implemented consistent with all applicable laws, treaties, and trust obligations, and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(b) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department, agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(c) Independent agencies are strongly encouraged to comply with this order.

(d) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

Obama Fraud

Filed under: evil,freedom,liberty,political — daveposh @ 1:24 pm

I need to share this post from Adrian Murray on Facebook. It needs to be shared with EVERYONE!

The fraud continues. Just went to barackobama.com and donated $3 using the name Adolph Hitler, 123 Nuremburg Way, Berlin, Germany and for good measure put in Dictator of Nazi Party as employer. Got an email back saying Dear Adolph, Thank you for your generous donation….

The point? To prevent credit card fraud, merchants require that the address match what the credit card issuer has on file. Called the Address Verification System (AVS), an additional layer of protection requires the three digit security code. The Obama team has disabled the AVS so anyone anywhere in the world can anonymously donate to his campaign, thereby exceeding campaign donation limits and violating federal finance laws. They pulled the same stunt in 2008, but the media wouldn’t report it.

Thomas Paine is back again, here to tell us an important message. It has been a while since we have heard from him. This one, as his previous messages, is very timely and appropriate.

Citizens of the USA, we are being sodomized again

Filed under: freedom,liberty,political — daveposh @ 7:15 pm

Bend over citizens of the United States of America.  We are again getting sotomized by our government, led by the Obama administration, the Democrats, the RINOs, and all the progressives in the Congress.

Back in August, the borrowing and spending of the USA hit a debt ceiling and they worked out a plan to (1) increase the debt ceiling immediately, (2) form a super committee in Congress to find at least $1.2 trillion in savings, and (3) again increase the debt ceiling.

Well, they did #1 and are prepared to do #3. But, oops, they didn’t do #2.  This is like “Wimpy” of the “Popeye” cartoons begging for money as in “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today”.

Screw the “F-ing” “A-holes” which is what they are doing to each and every citizen of the United States of America.

Enough is enough, and I’m not going to take it anymore!  Every G-damn politician that has not been fighting tooth and nail to (1) cut spending, (2) reduce our deficit, (3) reduce the size of government, (4) eliminate the U.N. Agenda 21 and “Sustainable” NGOs that are eating away at our liberties, (5) eliminate corruption in government, (6) eliminate cronyism in government.

Now is the time where Popeye squeezes the can of Spinach, gulps it down, and uppercuts Brutis who is the embodies our current evil, uncaring, elitist government.

This Is A Message Worth Listening To

Filed under: freedom,liberty,religion,sipritual — daveposh @ 9:38 am

This is a message worth listening to, from the second hour of Glenn Beck’s radio broadcast on October 25, 2011.

Watching this video is more moving than listening to the audio, which is more moving than reading the transcript. However, I believe it is so important that I have created a transcript, which follows:

In this last break, I was just talking to Pat, and Pat said, “Glenn, I’m beginning to wonder about some things because I see the stress that is on you.” And I said, “look, the stress that is on me is, I can loose everything on me, but I truely believe that I am being told to do things that are beyond my ability and my understanding, and I may end up quickly pennyless. It’s OK. I have stress in my life because I don’t want to lose it because of my stupidity or arrigance. I am totally fine losing it because that’s what He wanted. It’s fine. But not because I misread. Not because I did something wrong. We’re all going to be in the same boat. We’re all going to lose it. All of us, well, not George Soros. The world is profoundly changing, and unless you are at the top of the food chain, which I’m not, and you’re not, must likely, you’re not going to have it left. That’s OK. That’s OK. But, we have to do the right thing. My family… not me…. my family has sacrificed an enourmous amount so I can say the things I do. Not me, my family has. My family is in jeoprody… I don’t say these things lightly. I… … … beg you… to hear me. This always ends the same way. I beg you… to be stronger than you are today. I beg you… to clear out the crap in your life. I beg you to put your life in order. I beg you to think the unthinkable, because the unthinkable is here, and it accelerates from here. I humbly ask you if I may stand at your side, if I may…. help hold your arms up, so you don’t give up, that you put the things together in your own community to be of help and service to others. I humbly ask you…. for your prayers. But I…. can’t tell you any more, how imperitive it is that you make the committment to change your life today… today….
