President Obama had asked Congress for “fast-track” Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) so that he can finish negotiating and sign two trade “partnership” agreements, one with eleven Pacific Rim nations known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and another with the European Union known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
We consider the introduction of the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) bill to be a very big deal. Arguably the biggest threat to the continued existence of the United States as an independent nation under the Constitution is the Obama administration’s current initiative to negotiate and get congressional approval of the TPP and TTIP agreements. These agreements would put our nation on the path to political integration with the other nations involved in these negotiations and are being promoted by the same organizations that destroyed the independence of 28 European nations with the creation of the European Union.
And, since virtually everyone believes that the TPP and TTIP deals cannot be approved by Congress without a TPA bill in place, we must prevent congressional approval of TPA. We’re asking our members and all supporters of our national independence to phone their representative and senators now in strong opposition to the TPA bill.

“It’s not a new thing to be able to repair and modify cars,” said Kit Walsh, a staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation. “It’s actually a new thing to keep people from doing it. There are these specialized agencies that govern what vehicles can lawfully be used for on the road, and they have not seen fit to stop them from repairing cars.”
Aftermarket suppliers and home enthusiasts have been modifying ECUs for years without dire consequences. By tweaking the ECU codes, a process sometimes known as “chipping,” they’ve boosted horsepower, improved fuel efficiency, established performance limits for teen drivers and enhanced countless other features. These innovations have contributed to a “decades-old tradition of mechanical curiosity and self-reliance,” according to the EFF.
Those innovations could be curbed precisely at a time that automakers believe personalization of vehicles is emerging as a significant trend. Software is allowing for all sorts of technology, such as 4G LTE wireless connections, and motorists can use this software to choose from an increasing array of infotainment options. But the car companies, paradoxically, want to be the ones doing the personalizing.
The EFF thinks the industry’s desire to block exemptions has more to do with profits than safety. As software becomes easier to update, automakers could sell these performance upgrades on an a la carte basis. Because a favorable ruling would strengthen their control of the software, the car companies could potentially force consumers to only have their vehicles fixed at their dealerships or preferred repair shops.
FK – The days of the shade tree mechanic are long past anyhow. But these corporate bastards aren’t satisfied with keeping someone in debt until the vehicle wears out.
If he does, you can expect that THE BIGOT GAME will become a standard way of doing business — to an even greater extent than it is now.
Understand this: If you give a bully what he wants, you have guaranteed that the bullying will never end.
Take into consideration, also, that, if Democrats retain the White House, Lynch will almost certainly be nominated to replace Anthony Kennedy or Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. And, if Republicans believe they are experiencing pain now, wait till the “swing vote” for the entire federal judiciary is on the line.
So the GOP is now in the unique position of choosing how miserable it wants to be. When you feed a test animal, you get more of the same behavior. And confirming Lynch will be the ultimate reward for the Democrats’ loathsome campaign.
FK – The SCOTUS is NOT the final arbiter of our rights. WE ARE!
FK – The trash will still vote for it by the millions.
The Hitlery will do the same thing the Marxist mutt has done: Wake lots of sheeple up, piss lots of people off, sell more guns and ammo than her husband ever thought about and maybe, just maybe, awake enough to what will be required.
A republicrat NWO hack in the now red house will put the brain dead tea partiers back to sleep or send them back to the golf course.
It’s time to require three things to vote: Proof of citizenship in the form of a birth certificate or legal immigration papers; Proof of literacy in English; and a test to ascertain the prospective voter has a basic understanding of our history and the form of government we’re suppose to have here – small and limited with a focus on the importance of the Bill of Rights, which is what makes us ‘exceptional.’
The highly intelligent evil constantly lying communists that call themselves “Liberals” and “progressives” will of course easily pass the test. The millions of multi-generational parasites they created via their welfare state not so much. Many of them wouldn’t even bother.
A report issued by ICRI/CIR and iMinds-SMIT for the Belgian Privacy Commission claims that Facebook is tracking Internet users — even those who are not logged into a Facebook account — and capturing their browsing habits across the web. In many cases, the tracking involves users who do not even have a Facebook account.
The method by which Facebook tracks users is the ubiquitous “Like” button found on most websites. Sites that have the button must allow certain computer scripts to run. These scripts allow Facebook to see what websites users visit even if the users do not click the button. Facebook then uses that information to allow advertisers to direct their ads to targeted users. The practice is controversial in the United States and illegal in the European Union. The issue at stake is that if users agree to have their browsing habits tracked across the Web, it is a valuable service; if they do not, it is an invasion of their privacy. The “Like” button simply appearing on a website does not amount to a user’s consent.
To make matters worse, Facebook also ignores “Do Not Track” requests from users who activate that setting in browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. In doing so, Facebook joins ranks with Google and Yahoo as well as a slew of disreputable sites.
FK – I got back on Fake Book after being blocked a couple years back so I can interact with like-minded people and piss off “Liberal”(commie) trash. It’s not like ‘the authorities’ don’t know who I am. FB apparently hasn’t yet figured out it’s me. They wanted my cell no. to ‘verify’ my account and that I wasn’t a ‘spammer'(for using my standard rants to tell idiots and “Liberal”(commie) trash what I’m tired of having to repeat after all these years) at the time and I refused to give it to them. Didn’t have to this time. Don’t know if it’s a policy change or if I just slipped through the cracks.
We’ll see how long it takes the trash to boot me off this time.
Well-known Conservative activists and like-minded constitutionalists in New Hampshire and surrounding states will launch their new initiative, the 603 Alliance for the purpose of impacting the outcome of the New Hampshire First-in-the-National Primary election.
These activists realize from past elections that splitting their votes among numerous conservative candidates enables the moderate establishment to cruise to victory, and that only a consolidating effort on their parts will result in a victory for a conservative candidate.
The 603 Alliance has found a solution to this problem and will be revealing that plan to their supporters at the Summit meeting on April 19th, when the 603 Alliance is launched at the Crown Plaza in Nashua, NH, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Details on speakers and content of this Summit will be posted on the 603 Alliance website. www.603alliance.org
