NAACP Complains To UN About US States Voting Laws

Got that? The NAACP apparently is taking their concerns about possible voter disenfranchisement, of minorities, to an organization rife with criminals (remember Oil for Food?, Darfur?).

Absolutely ridiculous on its face. Mostly because they don’t like the laws in this country, ACORN hasn’t done enough voter fraud – so they want even more of a chance to destroy our needs for constitutional freedoms and the Law of the Land.

Apparently, NAACP no longer trusts even our own government. I wonder why?

Direct attention away from this maybe?

UPDATE: Not Just Gunwalker aka Fast and Furious

From the PJ Media article:

A violation of any of the IEEPA sanctioning programs or the Kingpin Act carries stiff penalties, both criminal and civil, and potentially totaling decades in prison and tens of millions of dollars in fines. It is not necessary that an individual or governmental entity be shown to have “knowingly” violated any of these programs: it is illegal for any U.S. entity or individual to aid, abet, or materially assist — or in the case of Operation Fast and Furious, to facilitate others to aid, abet, or materially assist — designated drug traffickers. There are no exceptions within IEEPA programs for unlicensed U.S. law enforcement or intelligence agency operations.

The only way the DOJ could remain legal invovling this Kingpin Act, would be if Attorney General Eric Holder requested a waiver before activating the program.

Hhhhmmm. So, if there is no waiver, either he didn’t know (and ignorance of the Law is not an excuse in Court) or he knew and has perjured himself (and if this is true, find the waiver).

Either way, he’s in deep doo-doo, I’d say.

UPDATE: Friday’s document dump (Jan 27, 2012) includes documentation proving Holder was informed immediately after the agent’s murder

Dumb And Dumber Gun Laws

Here it is, folks.

Democratic lawmakers have begun to say the DOJ’s lethal and irresponsible Fast and Furious program underscores the need for stricter gun control laws.

Hot Air hilights the idiots. They are Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y).

Here’s the article from The Hill that spills the beans.

As for AG Eric Holder claiming he didn’t know about guns walking, I call BS.
And here is a very good question. Video at the link.

PowerTo The Bureaucrats aka PLAN MD

This is vital to any and every Maryland resident that owns a home/real estate and more.

POWER TO THE BUREAUCRATS

by Ellen Sauerbrey

On October 31st, Carroll County Maryland and several private organizations hosted a forum on Plan Maryland, an Annapolis power grab that threatens private property rights, local land use decision making and economic development. Plan Maryland, is a “Sustainable Growth” or “Smart Growth” plan that makes many unfounded environmental assumptions as a basis of changing our way of life.

Expert speakers challenged many of the assumptions put forward by the O”Malley Administration to back up their call for a State Development Plan, State Transportation Plan, State Housing Plan and strategies to address Production, Distribution, and Consumption of Food, Water, Energy. Plan Maryland transfers power from accountable local elected officials to unelected state bureaucrats.

Carroll County Commissioner Richard Rothschild has been the Paul Revere on this issue, working tirelessly to awaken local governments in both Maryland and other states about this international “Sustainable Growth” movement that began as a UN blueprint for action called “Agenda 21”. Agenda 21 calls for action to be ” taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the UN, governments, and major groups in every area in which humans directly affect the environment”. But unfortunately, the environmental movement has been hijacked as a convenient excuse to attack capitalism; transfer wealth; impinge on private property rights; and foster a government run socio-economic system.

In 1992 President George HW Bush signed a ‘declaration’ in support of Agenda 21 that stated “Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced…” President Bill Clinton signed an executive order (2852) in 1993 that organized left-wing groups into a new President’s Council on Sustainable Growth to translate Agenda 21 into public policy administered by the federal government.

President Clinton’s advisor on Sustainable Growth was quoted saying, “Participating in a U.N. advocated planning process would very likely bring out many …right wing conspiracy groups…who would actively work to defeat any elected official…undertaking Local Agenda 21. So we call our process something else, such as “comprehensive planning,” “growth management,” or “smart growth.”

The International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) was created to implement Agenda 21 at the local level. Harvey Rubin, recent Vice Chair of the ICLEI gave insight into the agenda when he declared “individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.”

ICLEI USA’s stated mission is “to build, serve, and drive a movement of local governments to advance deep reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and achieve tangible improvements in local sustainability.” It acts as a consultant and resource-sharing network to its local government members. ICLEI includes over 1227 local government members worldwide in 70 countries, with more than 600 in the United States and is training “planners” in the development of plans like Plan Maryland.

Carroll County is the first county in the U.S. to withdraw from the ICLEI. The Commissioners recognize that the agenda being promoted is an attack on Middle America , finding our current lifestyles and consumption patterns involving high meat intake, the use of fossil fuels, electrical appliances, home and work-place air-conditioning, and suburban housing – are not sustainable.

Plan Maryland is a draft executive order scheduled to be signed by Governor O’Malley in November . The plan has not been voted on by any legislative body. The underlying goal has been described as a “war on rural America”, forcing development into “stack um and pack um” urban communities, and “no growth” in much of the rest of the state.

It will menace farmers by dramatically reducing land values in rural communities, making it difficult for farmers to obtain necessary lines of credit. A Farm Bureau letter states, “If Plan Maryland goes unchallenged, the unelected Secretary (of State Planning) Hall automatically becomes the land czar of Maryland, controlling where we live and where we work”. The Farm Bureau also expresses concern that the Secretary of the Environment may be given the authority to veto the subdivision of property.

The plan focuses on the future of transportation, since the automobile is seen as a major threat to the environment. There is a strong bias in favor of mass transit., which we are already seeing in the inequitable distribution of Transportation Trust Funds to transit rather than roads. And of course the higher the gas tax and tolls, the less people will be able to afford to drive

While it is characterized as a voluntary plan it will utilize a carrot and stick approach. Counties that do not comply with the edicts of state bureaucrats can be denied state funding. In addition to state funds, federal grants will be available to counties that accept the goals of “Sustainability.”

Something has gone terribly wrong when an unelected bureaucracy, by Executive fiat, can be given this much control over so many decisions affecting our fundamental rights.

It Takes Two

According to the Mayor of New York City, one-percenter Bloomberg – if there is anyone to blame for the mortgage crisis that led the collapse of the financial industry, it’s not the “big banks,” but Congress.

I’d go along with that but for one thing – it takes two to tango.

Congress (aka, Barney Frank) may have tilted the field by pushing and allowing Fannie & Freddie to ‘relax’ loan policies, but this has to spread to the banks in order to complete the process. And don’t forget, President Bush sounded warnings about this and tried to get Fannie & Freddie investigated – but Congress, aka, Barney Frank and others, prevented that.

You’re pandering again, Mayor, you reeally need to clean up the place. Starting with the park.

Disclosing Nondisclosure

The truth is, there will be a new rule giving the DOJ the right to lie.

The proposed rule directs federal law enforcement agencies, after personnel have determined that documents are too delicate to be released, to respond to Freedom of Information Act requests “as if the excluded records did not exist.” …

So, our elected officials now want even lower approval ratings than they have right now.
(Isn’t Congress in single digits? How about WH & DOJ, especially on Fast & Furious and other likely scandals?)

I Should Have Supported Voter ID

By Artur Davis

I’ve changed my mind on voter ID laws — I think Alabama did the right thing in passing one — and I wish I had gotten it right when I was in political office.
……
The truth is that the most aggressive contemporary voter suppression in the African American community, at least in Alabama, is the wholesale manufacture of ballots, at the polls and absentee, in parts of the Black Belt.
