Church And State

Bob L.
Feb. 19th 2016

Fast and quick, DOES ANY ONE really no the difference between Church and State or are you reading it however you see fit, I dare you to sit down and learn the true meaning.

The way I under stand it is, the Government can not get involved in church business, and the church can not get involved in government business, but yet they are both controlled by the people, not the other way around.

Government writes laws to protect all the people, not just some, same for the church, but not to dictate your beliefs on others.

You want freedom of religion, then stop trying  to tell others what to do because you don’t like what they say or do, it is not your place to push your religious beliefs on others, if you don’t like it leave.

We have been living this way for years with no problem, but now we have others trying to change our laws and religion, like I and others say leave until you want to yo want to become a true U.S. Citizen with our laws and religion and not change our Constitution and laws.

Religious Freedom For Some But Not Others

Bob L.     Just My Opinion, But It Depends On Who You Are.
Dec. 20th 2014

10590483_797781330281998_4969813968209198746_nWhether you are a U.S. Citizen or not, the Government or the Courts do not have the right to say  who has the rights to religious freedom, that is what the United States Constitution says, freedom of religion.

Insert from article ( attorney Matthew Besser, who filed the lawsuit. “The government can’t tell you what god to pray to or to pray at all.”)

But today it seems that only certain people have that right, but this administration today thinks that only Muslims, Atheist, and hate mongering churches, or any one church group have that right to take away that freedom, only you have that right to choose your religion, but if you have your head up your ass you have not noticed that we are losing our freedoms fast, when gone they will never be brought back, but right now we have nothing but Cowards letting them get away with it.

Like they say UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL!!!!!!! AND WE ARE FALLING FAST.

Two Faced Hypocrite

Bob L.    Just My Opinion, But?
April 12th 2014

Here you have a person talking about VOTER Rights and Fraud, but then is denying the people in Crimea their rights to vote on what they want, and that is not even part of the United States, but thinks that they have the right to deny them their rights to vote.

Then you have these people go out and use the race card that says that people are denied their right to vote, but I have not heard any one say that you can not apply and prove you are a United States Citizen to get the prof you can vote, except the people who live by the Race Card.

Invasion of Privacy coming your way By the Obama Administration

Comment By Bob L.
03-13-2013

Now THIS IS Invasion of Privacy!!  Obama is not satifyed with the Banks doing their jobs, he wants every ones bank account under his control.

Look out, if you make a dollar more than you report you will be treated as a Terrorist, Criminal, or you will have the IRS at your door.

 They won’t stop there, they will find more ways to take it away from you. Lets start with checking into where these politicians are coming up with all these millions other than what they give them selves from taxpayers.

Look out if you win a Lotto Jackpot, a Law suit, or Inherit money, you will be classified as a Criminal or a Terrorist.

Obama Is not happy with the taxes he got, now he is going to turn others lose to get in to your bank accounts to see if you are truthful about your money that you work hard to make, and just think then he will then have IRS start going after you if you have more than you report.

From what I can see is that this is another way to get every dollar out of the Legal American people, or a way to blackmail you to not stand up for your rights.

I don’t know about you but I don’t like where this Country is headed, if you check history all dictators started out this way, to where they took control of every thing, like Banks, Companies, and control of money, and look what has happen since this Administration got control of most of America, Banks Closing, Companies having to anwser to the Government to stay in Business, and who is going to have a Job, or who is going to have money.

Exclusive: U.S. plans to let spy agencies scour Americans’ finances

03-13-2013

NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Obama administration is drawing up plans to give all U.S. spy agencies full access to a massive database that contains financial data on American citizens and others who bank in the country, according to a Treasury Department document seen by Reuters.

The proposed plan represents a major step by U.S. intelligence agencies to spot and track down terrorist networks and crime syndicates by bringing together financial databanks, criminal records and military intelligence. The plan, which legal experts say is permissible under U.S. law, is nonetheless likely to trigger intense criticism from privacy advocates.

Financial institutions that operate in the United States are required by law to file reports of “suspicious customer activity,” such as large money transfers or unusually structured bank accounts, to Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).

The Federal Bureau of Investigation already has full access to the database. However, intelligence agencies, such as the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency, currently have to make case-by-case requests for information to FinCEN.

The Treasury plan would give spy agencies the ability to analyze more raw financial data than they have ever had before, helping them look for patterns that could reveal attack plots or criminal schemes.

The planning document, dated March 4, shows that the proposal is still in its early stages of development, and it is not known when implementation might begin.

Financial institutions file more than 15 million “suspicious activity reports” every year, according to Treasury. Banks, for instance, are required to report all personal cash transactions exceeding $10,000, as well as suspected incidents of money laundering, loan fraud, computer hacking or counterfeiting.

“For these reports to be of value in detecting money laundering, they must be accessible to law enforcement, counter-terrorism agencies, financial regulators, and the intelligence community,” said the Treasury planning document.

A Treasury spokesperson said U.S. law permits FinCEN to share information with intelligence agencies to help detect and thwart threats to national security, provided they adhere to safeguards outlined in the Bank Secrecy Act. “Law enforcement and intelligence community members with access to this information are bound by these safeguards,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

Some privacy watchdogs expressed concern about the plan when Reuters outlined it to them.

A move like the FinCEN proposal “raises concerns as to whether people could find their information in a file as a potential terrorist suspect without having the appropriate predicate for that and find themselves potentially falsely accused,” said Sharon Bradford Franklin, senior counsel for the Rule of Law Program at the Constitution Project, a non-profit watchdog group.

Despite these concerns, legal experts emphasize that this sharing of data is permissible under U.S. law. Specifically, banks’ suspicious activity reporting requirements are dictated by a combination of the Bank Secrecy Act and the USA PATRIOT Act, which offer some privacy safeguards.

National security experts also maintain that a robust system for sharing criminal, financial and intelligence data among agencies will improve their ability to identify those who plan attacks on the United States.

“It’s a war on money, war on corruption, on politically exposed persons, anti-money laundering, organized crime,” said Amit Kumar, who advised the United Nations on Taliban sanctions and is a fellow at the Democratic think tank Center for National Policy.

SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY

The Treasury document outlines a proposal to link the FinCEN database with a computer network used by U.S. defense and law enforcement agencies to share classified information called the Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System.

The plan calls for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence – set up after 9/11 to foster greater collaboration among intelligence agencies – to work with Treasury. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence declined to comment.

More than 25,000 financial firms – including banks, securities dealers, casinos, and money and wire transfer agencies – routinely file “suspicious activity reports” to FinCEN. The requirements for filing are so strict that banks often over-report, so they cannot be accused of failing to disclose activity that later proves questionable. This over-reporting raises the possibility that the financial details of ordinary citizens could wind up in the hands of spy agencies.

Stephen Vladeck, a professor at American University’s Washington College of Law, said privacy advocates have already been pushing back against the increased data-sharing activities between government agencies that followed the September 11 attacks.

“One of the real pushes from the civil liberties community has been to move away from collection restrictions on the front end and put more limits on what the government can do once it has the information,” he said.

Michael German, senior policy counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union, said that U.S. officials had floated a similar scheme to pool such data a decade ago, but that funding for the plan was later withdrawn by Congress.

He said one of the problematic aspects of the plan is that there is “wiggle room” on how the information will be used. In the past, the National CounterTerrorism Center, which is supposed to ensure that critical threat information is shared among various agencies, was obliged to “promptly identify and purge any innocent U.S. person information.”

But the guidelines were subsequently loosened so that “not only can they keep the data for a number of years, but they can continue to use it,” German said.

Once spy agencies get such data, German said, “it’s in a black hole. Time and again, we have evidence, unfortunately well after the fact, that somebody’s civil rights have been violated, that the intelligence community simply ignores the rules.”

Americas Freedom In Trouble

As Americans struggle, the Obamas make do with 37 Christmas trees

This Country is in the process of Taking Away you personal Freedoms.
Mr. & Mrs. Obama’s Government: (a government that makes decisions for people that they might otherwise make for themselves, esp those relating to private and personal behaviour).

The economy may be weak, unemployment strong and the first family soon to vacate the White House for another half-month of vacation in Hawaii.

But the Obamas have gone all out in decorating their house this year, including a nearly quarter-ton gingerbread White House.
