Another interesting article the gray area the government is slowly taking over or taking advantage of.  It all evolves around trust, do you feel the government will not abuse their power and control?  Do you?

‘Feds radiating Americans’? Mobile X-ray vans hit US streets

Atlanta – For many living in a terror-spooked country, it might seem like a great government innovation: Use vans equipped with mobile X-ray units to scan vehicles at major sporting events, or even randomly, for bombs or contraband.

But news that the US is buying custom-made vans packed with something called backscatter X-ray capacity has riled privacy advocates and sparked internet worries about “feds radiating Americans.”

“This really trips up the creep factor because it’s one of those things that you sort of intrinsically think the government shouldn’t be doing,” says Vermont-based privacy expert Frederick Lane, author of “American Privacy.” “But, legally, the issue is the boundary between the government’s legitimate security interest and privacy expectations we enjoy in our cars.”

Even more government control, and over reach through regulation, this time wiretaps for online communication.  This is the third separate area today alone.  I think things are speeding up…

Wiretapped phones, now Internet?

To better track criminals, U.S. wants to be able to wiretap online communications.

WASHINGTON – Federal law enforcement and national security officials are preparing to seek sweeping new regulations of the Internet, arguing that their ability to wiretap criminal and terrorism suspects is “going dark” as people increasingly communicate online instead of by telephone.

Essentially, officials want Congress to require all services that enable communications — including encrypted e-mail transmitters such as BlackBerry, social networking websites such as Facebook and software that allows direct “peer-to-peer” messaging such as Skype — to be technically capable of complying if served with a wiretap order. The mandate would include being able to intercept and unscramble encrypted messages.

The problem with deception, is it tends to be buried in the fine print, details, or 2500 page bills.  Here is another example, on the surface, it looks like it is for protecting us against terror threats but then you find this quote from someone who has reviewed the details.

But if the new plans go into effect, the Washington Post said: “transactions between European and US banks would be captured regardless of whether there is a substantiated need.”

Why would they need to capture ALL transactions, regardless of whether there is a substantiated need?

Do we trust them with these records?  Have they proven trustworthy?

MEPs demand explanation on US plan to monitor all money transfers

EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS – The EU commission and MEPs have requested clarifications from Washington on reported plans to expand an anti-terrorism programme targeting financial transactions – a move that would render void the long-debated “Swift agreement” enacted in August.

“We urgently seek clarifications from the US if these plans are an infringemet of the Swift agreement and the EU commission promised to demand further information on it,” Dutch Liberal MEP Sophie in’t Veld told this website on Monday evening (27 September) after a closed-door meeting with commission officials.

Texas Sues to Block Bizarre “Global Warming” Global Climate Disruption EPA Rules

Is what the post title should read, dang limitations of wordpress or maybe its my limited abilities…

Didn’t they get the memo that the government changed the name?

Another example of the federal governments nudging toward more control over states and citizens.

Not through the front door via legislation, but through back door regulation.  Always deception, when grabbing control…

Financially, we are being herded into very narrow options.  Our government is needing to control us to a point of no options, all to keep up the illusion and deception that they can fix our economy or that it is built on sand.

Basic finance tells you that in down times, you head to bonds and t-bills.  If you don’t trust bonds and t-bills, then you head to Gold, Silver, or physical assets to preserve your wealth and wait out the down times till you can buy back in.

What the government is doing is forcing us down a funnel.  The GM and Chrysler fiasco last year paired with the struggling states and cities has tainted the bond market.  With the unknown health of the US government and the Feds willingness to print currency to cover debt, T-Bills are unattractive.  That left Gold, Silver and other physical assets.  Physical assets, real estate, has taken a large hit, which left Gold and Silver. 

“Just as the government is trying to prevent people from investing in anything other than T-Bills by raising taxes on taxable interest and dividends to confiscatory levels, it’s also trying to prevent you from parking your wealth in assets, like gold, that compete with the paper dollars issued by the Federal Reserve and the Treasury.”

This last resort investment is the newest target of the government to attempt to drive investors back into T-Bills all under the deceptive guise of protecting the consumer from unscrupulous gold vendors.  It could be political too.

… a September 23 hearing of the Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection… will focus on “legislation that would regulate gold-selling companies, an industry who’s [sic] relentless advertising is now staple of cable television.”

…”Under Rep. Weiner’s bill, companies like Goldline would be required to disclose the reasonable resale value of items being sold.”  That’s great.  Are Mr. Weiner and Chairman Bernanke also going to agree to print on every dollar the reasonable expectation that its value will be eroded by inflation?

And why do they feel such excess is needed:  The fear of hyperinflation.  But….

The whole situation is amazing. If Mr. Weiner really wants to calm fears about hyperinflation, the last way to do it is to have a government hearing cracking down on the people warning of it.

So where is this all headed. 

It is just another sign or thread of our government putting the controls in place so that they control all the exits (places you can put your money).  It is the intersection of One World Currency, One World Government, and the Mark of the Beast.  Because you can’t convience (force) someone to take a mark that will control all investments and purchases, if they are invested in Gold and Silver.  Bottom Line.

Revelation 13:17 (NIV) – “so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.”

Revelation 13:7 (NIV) – “He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.”
