Pork Projects, Section 8, and Ancient Worries

When one looks at the massive amount of spending done by the elected representatives of the federal government on unpopular wars and unpopular projects, one might ask oneself, “By what authority do these people, some elected not even by popular majority, tax us against our will to fund projects which we do not support?”

Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. constitution states in part:

“The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;”

Ignoring spending power usurped by the executive branch of the government, (which is a different story) doesn’t this clearly gives the U.S. congress the absolute power to tax whatever it pleases for whatever purpose it deems necessary, regardless of what local and state governments, not to mention the people they represent, decide? If yes, then the current pork projects and other unrepresentative spending, which many people feel are abuses, are justified by the highest law in the land.

It may seem difficult to believe that a people who just made themselves free from the tyrannies of a foreign king, as the founders of this country were, would invite such abuses from so powerful a government. Not surprisingly, just such concerns did promulgate in the post-revolution States.

After the Constitution was framed and proposed, a series of correspondences were published in newspapers across the land discussing the pros and cons. The letters that were in favor of ratification of the new Constitution were called collectively the Federalist papers; those opposed the Anti-Federalist papers. (Both can be found easily online) Below is an excerpt from one of the latter written by a citizen of Pennsylvania under the pseudonym “Centinel”:

Now what can be more comprehensive than (article 1: section 8); not content by other sections of this plan, to grant all the great executive powers of a confederation, and a STANDING ARMY IN TIME OF PEACE, that grand engine of oppression, and moreover the absolute control over the commerce of the United States and all external objects of revenue, such as unlimited imposts upon imports, etc. they are to be vested with every species of internal taxation; whatever taxes, duties and excises that they may deem requisite for the general welfare, may be imposed on the citizens of these states, levied by the officers of Congress, distributed through every district in America; and the collection would be enforced by the standing army, however grievous or improper they may be. The Congress may construe every purpose for which the state legislatures now lay taxes, to be for the general welfare, and thereby seize upon every object of revenue.”

His fears were the fears of many Pennsylvania citizens and on October 6, 1787, James Wilson, delegate from Pennsylvania to the Constitutional Convention, tried to allay the fears of his fellow citizens during a public meeting. He says in part:

“The power of direct taxation has likewise been treated as an improper delegation to the federal government; but when we consider it as the duty of that body to provide for the national safety, to support the dignity of the union, and to discharge the debts contracted upon the collected faith of the States for their common benefit, it must be acknowledged that those upon whom such important obligations are imposed, ought in justice and in policy to possess every means requisite for a faithful performance of their trust. … Why should we be alarmed with visionary evils?”

Remember, this is one of the framers of the Constitution speaking. One could infer from this speech and events of the time that people would not accept taxation by the federal government unless it was to, “Provide for the national safety, to support the dignity of the union, etc.” How would these first Americans have perceived the famous “Bridge to Nowhere” or other programs funded by federal tax dollars that benefit only a very few?

Today, our elected representatives routinely tack on riders to bills that give federal funds to the special interests of their constituents and the wealthy people who funded their campaigns. Because of the nature of an election in which the voters probably do not know and will never meet the candidates, the people who are elected are those who can afford an extensive media campaign.

This opens the door for making profit by running a successful campaign (buying more TV time), getting someone who will do what they are told elected, and then relying on that person to get more pork than the campaign costs. And of course, if one could not afford a campaign, one could chip in with others and buy a candidate. With the enormous revenues generated by the federal income tax, this is a good investment of capital.

It could be asserted that, since the people on 1787 had just fought a war to rid their land of tyrannical government, they had a better idea of how a powerful government can overwhelm the rights of free people. In answer to the question, “Does Section 8 give congress the power to tax what it pleases as it pleases for whatever purpose it pleases?, how do you think the first patriots would answer?

    Jesse,

    From Wikipedia:
    The oligarchy (from Greek ὀλιγαρχία, oligarkhía[1]) is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small segment of society distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, or military control. The word oligarchy is from the Greek words “ὀλίγος” (olígos), “a few”[2] and the verb “ἄρχω” (archo), “to rule, to govern, to command”.[3] Such states are often controlled by a few prominent families who pass their influence from one generation to the next.

    Oligarchies have been tyrannical throughout history, being completely reliant on public servitude to exist. Although Aristotle pioneered the use of the term as a synonym for rule by the rich, for which the exact term is plutocracy; but oligarchy is not always a rule by wealth, as oligarchs can simply be a privileged group, and do not have to be connected by bloodlines as in a monarchy. Some city-states from ancient Greece were oligarchies.

    You don’t suppose…uh…nah…ridiculous! Not in America!

    Free at Last: CPUC Approves Smart Meter Opt Out for SCE and SDG&E; Dr.
    Neil Cherry: RF’s Effect on Neurotransmitters; Public Space
    Increasingly Irradiated

    Posted onApril 19, 2012

    Good News. 🙂

    Today the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved a
    smart meter opt out option for both Southern California Edison and San
    Diego Gas and Electric customers. Please share this information with
    friends and neighbors.

    From the SCE press release: /”Starting May 9, customers may opt out by
    calling 1-800-810-2369. For customers already on the delay list,
    calling the number will enable them to enroll in the opt-out program and
    keep their current meters. Customers who have a smart meter, but would
    like to opt out, can have their meter exchanged for the type (i.e.
    electro-mechanical analog meter or non analog, non-smart digital meter)
    that was previously in place.”
    /San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) has not yet announced the date
    their opt out will go into effect, but they need to offer it within
    twenty days. Their contact number is 1-800-411-7383 .

    Even though the CPUC has given the utilities permission to charge (price
    gouge?) California rate payers to opt out (a 75 dollar initial fee even
    if you already have an analog and a ten dollar additional monthly fee) I
    recommend that people still go for it. They don’t want you to. (They
    have many plans–financial incentives– for their smart grid including
    feeding your information to third party vendors). *Inactivate their
    “smart” meter program by refusing to participate! * Also, when you opt
    out you can send a note that you are paying the opt out fee “under
    protest.” See also the Northern Californian web site Stop Smart
    meters! for othersuggestions
    to
    challenge the fees.

    Besides
    Besides the satisfaction of not going along with the big utility
    monoliths, there are, of course, other reasons to opt out of a “smart”
    meter. It is extremely easy for all of us to be inattentive to the
    possible effects of non ionizing radiation–as it is invisible, has no
    taste or smell, etc. You can only tell if you are being irradiated if
    you have a special meter/analyzer or if you happen to be
    electrohypersensiti ve.

    However, there are too many studies, including WHO’s designation of it
    as a carcinogen, which show (even as it becomes so ubiquitous in our
    society) that Radio Frequency electromagnetic radiation may have adverse
    health effects. Arecent Yale study
    involving cell
    phones and mice, for example, showed cognitive changes from non
    ionizing radiation. Also, even though you may not be able to
    immediately feel the effects radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation is
    having on you, your cells are still responding. As the lateDr.Neil
    Cherry has said in a radio interview
    /”Our brain
    is an electromagnetic organ. [In] our central nervous system, every cell
    communicates with its neighbors to see how they are–using
    electromagnetic signals.” /One effect radio frequency electromagnetic
    radiation has is to disrupt the calcium ions in our brains. . Says Dr.
    Cherry/”calcium ions control the neurotransmitters in the brain. . .
    .//If you expose the brain to these frequencies- you alter the calcium
    ions–you alter the brain patterns. That’s what Ross Adey in California
    showed; repeated by the EPA; Carl Blackman; and it’s been repeated in
    about 10 or 12 laboratories in the world–that calcium ions are changed
    by these signals. That’s pretty well established. Frequencies match and
    cells react and change the behavior which changes the brain pattern, the
    reaction time.”/

    To stay updated about the ins and outs of the Smart Meter rulings,
    please see the following web sites and Facebook pages Burbank Action
    ,
    StopOCSmartMeters, Stop Smart Meters
    Now (Facebook)
    ,
    Center for Electrosmog Prevention
    , EMF Safety Network
    ,Stop Smart Meters!
    and Eon3emfblog .
    among others. There continue to be many issues with the smart meter opt
    out option (and the smart grid in general): it doesn’t allow businesses
    to opt out; doesn’t address multiple co-located smart meters; the soon
    to come (useless for you but lucrative for them) gas and water “smart”
    meters, etc.

    My web siteStop Smart Meters Irvine
    also has archived articles, links
    and occasional updates. I am not able to update it regularly, but the
    entire wireless issue (that is the complete irradiation of our public
    spaces) continues to advance.

    *Just FYI, Here are Some Mainly Local Examples*:

    1.Wi Fi on OCTA Buses. The metal buses create what Dr. George Carlo
    calls a resonant cavity (increasing the radiation level); it’s like
    riding in a traveling microwave oven. (For a funny take on the
    “microwave oven” idea, seeStephen Colbert’s video
    where
    he puts an Amy’s burrito between himself and his cell phone).

    2. Wi Fi In Medical Clinics. In Irvine, medical clinics now offer
    irradiation services for free (no co pays) not in the radiology
    department but in the waiting room: The Kaiser Permanente medical
    clinic in Woodbridge, Irvine, frequented by newborns, people with
    pacemakers and others with various illnesses is now fitted with
    radiation emitting wi fi–because their administrator told me “their
    members wanted it.”

    3 The Irvine libraries have routers right above the reference desk so
    the employees are exposed to this all day long. Bonjour? I recommend
    they brush up on their French and call the National Library of
    France-where Wi Fi was completely removed because librarians became
    active and protested the health effects.

    4. Buy your Daisy Sour Cream. Irradiate your Head! If you shop at the
    local grocery stores, you can be irradiated as you do your grocery
    shopping (Albertson’s Campus store, dairy section; look above you on
    the wall–the spider like device is a high powered router. (There is Wi
    Fi in Ralphs and Gelsons, also.)

    5. Mission Viejo Library: Special teen only section with cool
    irradiating spider: The irradiating “spider” is also affixed to a wall
    at the Mission Viejo Library near the children’s area.

    6. RF Chips Credit Cards: Also besides not holding (as neurosurgeon Dr.
    Keith Black recommends) your cell phone to your brain, you might think
    twice about stashing your new credit card in your pocket or bra–because
    the credit companies are now installing RF chips in these, which creates
    not only health but security risks. See this you tube video for the
    security issues .
    Note: If your company sends you such a card, you can punch the RF chip
    out with a hole puncher.)

    MARITIME ATTACK: Law of the Sea Treaty in US Senate for Approval
    May 15, 2012, 1:13 pm By Arlen Williams

    The U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs is once again diddling with the ultra-massive U.S. sovereignty and communitarian wealth giveaways known as the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea Treaty (UNCLOS or LOST). Whenever one sees “communitarian,” one may think “global communist.”
    Neo-Marxist Saboteur Barack Obama‘s State and Defense Departments (including numerous compromised, NATO-head officers) are pressuring the Senate to adopt this travesty after years of resistance dating back to Ronald Reagan’s presidency. If the committee goes forward with it, they could choose either of two paths: 1. the honorable and traditional congressional method of holding hearings, or 2. “fast-track” it, in order to slip voting through with as little light of day or time for the People to react, as possible.
    The Senate is still Harry Reid’s crypto-Marxist Senate, and this committee’s chairman is John Kerry, so LOST may pop up for a vote like a rapist plunging from behind the bushes in the dark, within the next few days.
    Recent and upcoming reports may be found at Heritage.org: “heritageaction.com/tag/law-of-the-sea-treaty.” Gulag Bound will also continue to monitor: “gulagbound.com/tag/un-convention-on-the-law-of-the-sea-unclos-or-lost.”
    For other sources, see in Investors.com, “Obama Seeks Sovereignty Surrender Via LOST Treaty,” May 8, 2012; in U.S. News & World Report, “Kill the Law of the Sea Treaty,” May 10; and at Breitbart, Daily Caller, or American Thinker, “American Sovereignty: LOST at Sea?” by Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison, May 14.
    Perhaps the most thorough of the most recent articles is found at Liberty News Online, “The Creature from the Ocean’s Floor – the Law of the Sea Treaty,” by John W. Wallace, May 15. We hope Mr. Wallace does not mind our excerpting it at length.

    The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) was first conceived in the early 1980’s by the United Nations as a method for them to gain control of most of the activities on, over, and beneath the ocean’s surface. The fundamental premise of the Law of the Sea Treaty is that the resources on the ocean’s floor belong to all of the people of the world and those resources should be protected and controlled by an international organization like the United Nations. Although that may sound like a noble goal, in order to achieve this goal, the United Nations has created a multinational, bureaucratic creature called the International Seabed Authority (“ISA”) and charged this entity with regulating and controlling the world’s mineral resources in the oceans.
    When President Reagan was president, he objected to several of the treaty’s provisions that would have resulted in surrendering our nation’s sovereignty and refused to sign it, but that didn’t stop the proponents of world government and the New World Order. In 1994, the “progressives (a nice term used to describe communists) at the United Nations decided to keep moving forward with their plans by creating a diversion they called an “Agreement of Implementation” that was supposed to address the concerns of the United States and other industrialized nations. It didn’t change anything. This new agreement was all smoke and mirrors, but our Oxford educated, globalist president Bill Clinton signed it anyway. The Senate, however, refused to ratify it, as required by the U.S. Constitution.
    Proposed regulations in the new Law of the Sea Treaty will require private companies that want to conduct exploration and mining operations in international waters to submit substantial application fees to the UN’s International Seabed Authority (ISA), which in turn would allow the ISA to use these application fees to partially pay for its own mining efforts through its own mining subsidy, called the Enterprise. Corporations from member nations operating in international waters would have to pay annual fees and even be taxed to pay a percentage of their profits to the ISA. These corporations would also be expected to share their mining and navigational technology with third world countries to ensure that opportunities aren’t restricted to more technologically advanced. This is insane. The decision to grant or to withhold mining permits in international waters would now be decided by unelected, globalist bureaucrats at the United Nation’s International Seabed Authority (ISA).
    The Treaty would essentially give the United Nations, a notoriously corrupt, anti-American, anti-capitalist and un-democratic organization, the power to assert control over 70% of the earth’s surface.
    Using the regulations issued by the ISA, the United Nations would now be given the power to levy international fees and taxes on American companies. Mining approvals would be highly politicized and could discriminate against American operators. The United Nations would be given the power to regulate ocean research, exploration, fishing, marine environmental protection and navigation. They could even impose production quotas and licensing requirements on American fishermen operating in international waters.
    The United Nations, through the ISA, would be given the power to create an international court system to render and enforce its judgments! This new system would lie outside the jurisdiction of the U.S. legal system and the U.S. Constitution, leaving American citizens and businesses at the mercy of international tribunals whose corrupt UN bureaucrats could subject them to Sharia Law or other non-Western legal traditions.
    The Treaty calls for prosperous member nations like the United States to provide financial and technical assistance not only to developing countries, but also to “people who have not attained full independence or other self-governing status” (codeword for groups such as the Palestinians).
    The Treaty would do irreparable harm to U.S. military and intelligence operations and would force the United States to hand over proprietary technology to less developed third-world countries, many of whom are actively hostile to U.S. interests. Giving up the U.S. Navy’s long established primary mission of “maintaining freedom of the seas for all” and handing it over to a historically corrupt organization like the United Nations should be unthinkable.
    The most important objection concerns Article 314 of The Law of the Sea Treaty (located in Part XVII) that empowers the LOST member Assembly, dominated by nations of the developing world, to amend the terms of the treaty over the objection of any individual member state. In other words, the terms of the treaty could be changed significantly and the United States would have to abide by those changes without the U.S. Senate having the opportunity to consent to the changes. This undermines U.S. sovereignty and is clearly unconstitutional.
    The Law of the Sea Treaty creates a new United Nations’ worldwide bureaucracy that will create a whole new restrictive system of destructive environmental regulations that would be costly and counter-productive to American businesses, while at the same time, handing over the hard-earned, American taxpayer money to many of our enemies.
    The socialists, Marxists, globalists and other supporters of the New World Order keep pushing for this treaty. Senator Harry Reid has indicated that he might reintroduce the treaty in the Senate for a vote in the near future and Barack Obama, our socialist President, who is a long term advocate of the Law of the Sea Treaty, has indicated that he will sign it if passed by the Senate.

    The Coalition to Preserve American Sovereignty has brought an open letter to the senate, coordinated by Frank Gaffney, with the signatures of nineteen notables. This letter is featured in The Minority Report, which would also expose a separate, false-hood front group calling itself The American Sovereignty Campaign, purporting itself as pro-sovereignty while lobbying for LOST. The American Sovereignty Campaign – interesting – almost as if someone’s email or telephone conversations were caught. Oh well. It is a common practice for immoral Marxists and other ideological movements sponsored by the kleptocratic central bank complex to either attempt to control their opposition, or to set up an operation posing as a faction of it.

    Sen. Kerry summoning a political jiu-jitsu pose

    It is again time for immediate and forcefully amassed communications to U.S. Senators of all kinds, even their numerous Fabianists. A two-thirds majority is required to approve a treaty, but these people are being heavily pressured by the kleptocracy and their globalist co-conspirators.

    Following is notable and extensive analysis from the recent past.

    After public anger over a provision in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that allows indefinite detention of American citizens without accusation or trial, Congress has paraded a “new” version that is supposed to overcome this danger. [However, a close reading of the bill reveals that nothing has changed except the addition of assuring phrases without substance. It proves that those who drafted this bill are using deliberate deception.]

    NDAA 2013 Headed to Full House; Smith/Amash Amendment Offered

    After a US federal court blocked NDAA indefinite detention of US citizens the House of Representatives passes the 2013 NDAA which reauthorizes it.
