When We’ve Lost Our Freedom, It’s GAME OVER

  When your freedom is gone, it doesn’t matter who took it or what “ism” they spout. All you see is the gun. Freedom has one foot in the grave in the US and the eventual coup de grâce will amount to a trivial irrelevance. Perhaps it will be the masters of our police state apparatus going full rogue, some sort of outrage by a group the government labels as terrorist, the threat of an epidemic, or something else, but only the stubbornly myopic do not see the totalitarianism on the horizon. – Robert Gore at Straight Line Logic In […]

“Big Brother AT&T” a true story by Bob

Hat/Tip to Jim Gourdie at Asylum Watch and Bob at Gonna’ Say It.  Long time friend of Asylum Watch, Bob over at Gonna’ Say It, experienced up close and personal the federal government’s capacity to intrude in your life. He published this true story on October 24, 2014. Ya’ll aint going to believe this. It really happened this morning, and the folks at AT&T admit it. Here’s what happened. I am a customer of AT&T Uverse TV, Internet, and home telephone. All my entertainment is delivered by AT&T, and they do a good job. AT&T is expensive, but after trying […]

You Know America Is In Trouble When You Have To Depend On The Likes Of Google And Apple To Protect Your Freedoms

  The march toward an Orwellian police state is picking up speed. From NSA spying, to Swat Teams swarming a company’s offices because they may or may not be using appropriate accounting practices, to the EPA ordering a family to tear down their house because it was built where mud puddles sometimes for making it a protected wet-lands, to the DOJ tapping the phones of journalists, to citizens losing all rights of due process if “suspected” of being a terrorist, and much more, your rights, as supposedly protected by our constitution and its Bill of Rights, are being eroded away […]

Ebola Lie: U.S. Military Will Not Have Contact With Ebola Patients; Ebola Truth: They Will Handle Infected Specimens

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Remember when Obama said that our men and women in the military won’t be hands on with any Ebola patients? Well, I guess that doesn’t apply to their bodily fluids…   So they wouldn’t “contact the infected person”, just their specimen? Alrighty, now… Via Breitbart: Over 500 American troops are in West Africa, and according to Maj. Gen. Darryl Williams, commander of U.S. Army Africa, said on October 16 while briefing reporters in the Pentagon by telephone from Liberia, none will directly be treating Ebola patients. However, he said that a select group of sailors will […]

MUST SEE VIDEO: Citizen Pulls Over Cop, Demands ID, Gets It. Lets Cop Off with Verbal Warning

Hat/Tip to The Free Thought Project. Editor’s Note:There are two versions of this video, CH2.0 chose to post the shortened one, but there are links to both videos at the bottom of this article. We here at CH2.0 must agree with sentiments expressed by The Free Thought Project about this video: If all citizens held their government officials to the same level of accountability that this man does, ‘government corruption’ would be a history lesson only. We all know that impersonating a police officer is punishable by law. But this case is turned around, as a citizen pulls an on-duty […]

Judicial Supremacy – Should We Stand Down And Let It Rule The Land?

  There seems to be more than a little confusion about a trend we see developing across America. That trend is the false theory that the Judicial Branch is superior to the other two branches that make up the government of the United States. This trend is not one that has just cropped up out of nowhere. Instead, it has been in the works for decades. Once the Supreme Court rules, everyone just bows down and accepts what they have ruled as gospel. Never mind how nonsensical the ruling may be. We need to keep something in mind. The Supreme […]

8 Ways the Obama Administration is Blocking Information

AP Washington Bureau Chief Sally Buzbee (AP Photo). Hat/Tip to the AP. Well, it is finally happening. The MSM who fell head-over-heels in love with Barack Obama in 2007-2008 are finally waking up to the reality of his Chicago-style political thug tactics. The fight for access to public information has never been harder, Associated Press Washington Bureau Chief Sally Buzbee said recently at a joint meeting of the American Society of News Editors, the Associated Press Media Editors and the Associated Press Photo Managers. The problem extends across the entire federal government and is now trickling down to state and local governments. […]

Democrats Now Hold Majority of Appellate Court Seats

Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Quietly, almost as if he applied his inane ‘leading from behind’ strategy to filling the courts, President Obama has begun tipping the scales of justice over towards the left. President Barack Obama has been quietly reversing the federal appellate courts’ balances over the past six years, with Democratic appointees now holding the majority of seats on nine of the country’s 13 United States Courts of Appeals. It’s a little-noticed shift with far-reaching consequences. “With all the gridlock, it is forgotten that one of the most profound changes this Congress made was filling the bench,” […]

More Cash for Clunkers Fallout: Decreased Industry Output by 3 Billion Dollars

We covered the debacle that was Cash for Clunkers as it happened. Ulterior Motives in “Cash for Clunkers?” Cash for Clunkers: Revisited Cash for Clunkers Revisited: More Damage Done Cash for Clunkers Update: Jobs Created for the Bargain Price of $1,400,000 a Pop Additional evidence of it’s failure continue to come in years later.  The latest Cash for Clunkers evidence comes to us courtesy of the Lonely Conservative… This is how Democrats “help” the economy. The government’s “Cash for Clunkers” program – pitched as a plan to jump-start U.S. auto sales and clean up the environment by getting gas-guzzling vehicles […]

NJ Supreme Court orders state legislature to end Spousal Privilege in criminal cases

Our activist state supreme court is at it again. Legislating from the bench. Penning actual legislation, and ordering that it be enacted, forthwith. The New Jersey Supreme Court said Tuesday that the traditional privacy rights reserved for married couples — shielding their intimate conversations from public view — should no longer apply to spouses who are hatching or executing a crime together. In a 7-0 ruling, the justices said it was time to update the state’s law on criminal evidence so prosecutors can use at trial any smoking-gun communications they find between married partners. However, their ruling did not overturn […]

How many gay Americans are there? Less than 2%

Hat/Tip to CNS News. In 2011 Gallup conducted a survey, asking Americans to estimate how much of the population was homosexual. The results were surprising in that respondents thought that 1 in 4, or 25% of Americans were gay. Nothing could be farther from the truth, it seems. Contrary to popular belief, just 1.6 percent of American adults identify as homosexual, compared to 96.6 percent who say they are heterosexual, according to a large-scale, first-of-its-kind government survey recently released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In 2011, a Gallup survey found that 52 percent of Americans believed […]

Obama Administration Is Most Transparent In American History – Not!

Remember when Barack Obama promised his administration would be the most transparent presidency in American history? Yes, he really said that. Do you think he has lived up to that promise? Let’s do a little math and see. The IRS investigates conservatives, the EPA tries to implement rules to garnish your wages, the entire administration contrived to hide what happened in Benghazi, Obama himself implemented the DREAM Act via Executive Order, the list could go on and on. Over the past five years, we have seen countless scandals come out of the most transparent administration in American history. They even […]

SCOTUS slaps down SEIU over illegal union dues

Schadenfreude! SCOTUS ruling will force SEIU to repay millions in illegal union dues The Purple People Beaters got beat. And soon, they’ll feel the heat. One of the nation’s most powerful labor unions could face a costly onslaught of lawsuits seeking tens of millions of dollars in dues, after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the money was collected improperly, legal experts said. In a ruling Monday, the high court held that Service Employees International Union cannot force people who care for loved ones to be union members and deduct dues from the government checks of those they care for. The […]

Obama Worst, Reagan Best, Mitt a Better Fit

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Quinnipiac: Obama Worst President Since World War II, Reagan the Best It seems as if the pollsters are finding out what we here in flyover country (anywhere outside of DC) already knew. President Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, and the United States would have been better off if his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, had won the election in 2012, a new Quinnipiac University national poll released today reveals. The best president? Ronald Reagan. “Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President […]

Obama’s Poll Numbers Plummet to Below 30%

Hat/Tip to Gallup. Barack Obama is suffering from the Second Term Blues, and he has only himself to blame. Well, himself and Bush, I mean he blames Bush for everything. Well, Bush and Global Climate Warming Change. Well, Bush, Climate Change and the House Republicans. I’d better stop before this Op-Ed begins to resemble a Monty Python skit. Anyway, as Obama is embroiled in scandal after scandal, his numbers and popularity among us “bitter clingers” here in “fly over country” are in the basement. When you compare Obama’s numbers to that of Clinton and Bush at the same point in […]

Obama Administration Plans to use Military Force Against US Citizens

Hat/Tip to the Washington Times. The Obama administration has put in place a plan authorizing the use of Military force against United States Citizens. Presidential Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” was issued Dec. 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.” A 2010 Pentagon directive on military support to civilian authorities details what critics say is a troubling policy that envisions the Obama administration’s potential use of military force against Americans. The directive contains noncontroversial provisions on support to civilian fire and emergency services, special events and the domestic use of […]

Obama to claim half million acres today under ‘Monument act’

  Thanks to LadyRaven’s Whisky In A Jar – OH! Obama to claim half million acres today under ‘Monument act’. Originally posted on BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns and Guts Comrades!: We were warned that this was coming. Of all places, the announcement today will give illegals an open pathway on the border with Mexico directly to the U.S. Bundy style, the BLM moves again. Back in 2010, a leaked memo indicated Obama had his eye on 13 million acres. Some larger than Rhode Island and Delaware combined. Much of it rich in gas, oil and other rich minerals. President Obama […]

Judicial Activism: Gay Federal Judge’s Ruling Overturning Pennsylvania’s Ban On Gay Marriage Reads Like a GLAAD Press Release…

Hat/Tip WeaselZippers. He’s insanely biased, and proud of it. Via NRO: A district judge in Pennsylvania ruled yesterday that the state is obligated to recognize same-sex marriages. Given the sensitivity of the issue, the judge must have taken extra caution to present a sober, impartial analysis of the relevant case law, right? Of course not. His decision reads like a press release from a gay-rights organization, replete with emotional appeals, loaded terminology, and rhetorical flourishes. While reading the first paragraph of the decision, keep in mind that the author is supposed to be a neutral arbiter of the law: “Today, […]

How to Ease the Crushing Costs of Federal Regulations

Yeah that’s right. The costs imposed by our federal government on us plays out to the tune of nearly $2 TRILLION a year. “You can look at the federal budget and see what we spend. There is nothing like that with respect to regulations. I tabulate the annual cost of regulation to be about $1.8 Trillion. Any regulation that is expected to cost over $100 million is supposed to get a cost-benefit analysis. Obama added $20 billion in new regulatory costs just last year. Every year there are over 3,500 new rules that come out of the federal government. Do […]

Is Chief Justice John Roberts getting the band back together?

Is Chief Justice John Roberts returning to his Conservative roots? It would seem so. Two years after the court upheld President Barack Obama’s health-care law and a year after it bolstered gay rights, the five Republican-appointed justices are voting together again in the highest-profile cases. In recent weeks that group, led by Chief Justice John Roberts, has joined to loosen campaign-finance limits, back government-sponsored prayer and let states ban racial preferences. Now, as the court enters the final month-and-a-half of its term, those justices may unite in cases involving contraception, abortion protests and separation of powers. “When he’s got the […]
