Did the government allow the publication and distribution of government secrets, even though the author did not submit his manuscript for review?
Or did the government buy the entire distribution to protect the secrets of the government?
If the government did buy the entire distribution, then the fines being “paid” are the recirculation of our taxes as our taxes are the only income the government has to spend, resulting in the only income the author received and is being ordered to pay.
If the government did not buy up the entire distribution, why not? Were those really secrets critical to the nation or information of some other value? Is $6.6 million the going rate for national secrets?
All theater. OBL wad a patsy. There was no raid. He was a pawn whose time had run out.
He should have had it published by Clinton Foundation Publishing. You have to think these things through.

Would you agree that the First Amendment is the Freedom of Education amendment?
Educated people tend to trust but verify. Therefore if you believe and never verify are you considered educated?
So do you shoot the messenger or the message in this piece?

JFK started the New Frontier Program because he observed that the under educated are easy to deceive.
LBJ changed the New Frontier Program to the Great Societhy because the under educated are easy to deceive.
To prove LBJ was correct we have spent trillions of dollars on the War of Poverty and increase the percentage of people living in poverty. We have triple the amount spent per student and lowered the level of public education.

Freedom of Education is the antidote for the corruption of those we hire, via a vote, to represent our standards and princiles in government.
Government agencies, such as the FBI and Department of Education, are beyond the reach of voters. Today we are discovering the perils of such unrestrained power.

There is the arguement of another victim of a K-12 compulsory education in the United States. One bad behavior justifies another. She hit me first.
Present the facts to a jury of peers and let them decide.

In common these freedoms are means of education.
• Freedom of speech
• Freedom of religion
• Freedom of the press
• Freedom of assembly
• Freedom to petition the government
The judge is about to get a lesson on freedom of education.
Does the Blaze’s use of the highly insecure Flash Player indicate their lack of concern for Blaze customer’s computer security or technical ignorance?

None of those people gave their lives fighting for an inanimate object.”
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands
One nation under God
With liberty and justice for all.
Does that sound inanimate to you Jason R. Grow a set and take the pledge.
“And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”

Our flag is about being proud to know how to live free.
Our K-12 graduates graduated unable to function effectively in their community. Would you expect our children to be proud of spending 13 years in school only to graduate impoverished while the compulsory education system spends $5 billion per year in take home pay?
Our children can’t add a 9 hole golf score in their head, have no idea where the Separatist who settled Plymouth Rock came from or why, Our children have never been taught moral, ethics, integrity or virtues as part of the their K-12 education.
We failed them. We voted for this mess. We accept the excuses of our politicians. We are the problem, lets educate ourselves and become the solution. Any name in a phone book can be led by a hog ring in their political nose. Lets do these politicians a favor, challenge them with facts. Vote for people who represent your values and then watch them like a starving hawk.

What recourse would expect after Fort McHenry? Then what recourse would you expect from the recourse to Fort McHenry?
One thing we know for sure, the bankers, supporting central banking, made money off both sides.

Which practice their faith in their philosophies of liviing more religiojusly athiests or christians?
June 5, 2016 at 1:04am
ISIS is a belief, how do you kill a belief?
We know in world history judaeo/christian countries grow their standards of living for long periods of time, no other philosophy of living and governing can make that claim.
Perhaps this would be OK on the violent convicts.
Using this for dope or bad check convicts seems excessive.

There may be some constitutional question about how the federal government gets it power to scan people at airports. There is no doubt that the states are free to make their own laws about running their own prisons.
In the United States which web sites are illegal to visit? Who decides? Who decides who decides?
If the FBI decides which web sites someone can visit legally and which cannot be visited, is that the definition of a police state?
Our founding document says “that all men are created equal”. Takes a high level of public wisdom to be a citizen of first country in world history to form a nation based on “created equal”. Parents are responsible for preparing their children to be parents who can prepare their children to live in our society based on “created equal”.
Most people in the world do not know how to live as “created equal” and that is why we have immigration restrictions to insure new citizens know how to live and prepare their children to live as “created equal”.
Then we wrote a how to document listing the 7 things government can do to immpliment “created equal”.
“We the People of the United States, (1) in Order to form a more perfect Union, (2) establish Justice, (3) insure domestic Tranquility, (4) provide for the common defence, (5) promote the general Welfare, and (6) secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, (7) do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
No. The preamble is the why, the constitution is the what. That is why Statists using the preamble to justify something for the 'general welfare' are really over reaching.

We are beginning to see the effects nationwide of a K-12 education in the United States, mass ignorance of our founding document the Declaration of Independence and the basis for our legal system the Constitution. Instead of teaching information with life long impact, morals, ethics, integrity and other character building subject our schools are going for the short term information science, manufacturing, agriculture.
Remember when our dollar was a good as gold? Today our dollar has no redemable value. As a nation our word has no redemable value.
We vote for people to represent us in government, to make sure our word as good as gold. Our K-12 graduate and vote in the same year yet have very little wisom because no course on wisdom, character building has been taught during their public school career. Our graduates do not possess the basic skills to function effectively in society, they are impoverished.
Cast your vote for someone who best represents what you stand for.
And don’t forget the MASSIVE amount of ACLU spoon fed lawyers and judges WHO KNOWINGLY FOR YEARS PERVERTED THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM. BTW the ACLU was founded by a COMMUNIST. Judges don’t even recognize the Constitution and don’t use it. They use COMMERCE law for civil torts as opposed to Common Law. THE COURT SYSTEM IS ONE BIG LIE OF A MESS…………….and no one can do anything because the “judges” have been given an “omnipotent” status, which should not be: As all humans are flawed.
Behind these rancid politicians stand a phalanx of “Lawyers/Judges” WHO RULE IN FAVOR OF THE GLOBALIST AGENDA, which is to destroy HUMAN RIGHTS as given by God, in the Bill of Rights.
Even exalted Scalia was a perverted basket case. Proof positive "Omnipotent" status should be removed from judges.
But its not the schools job to teach your child wisdom or character that comes from being a parent. Do your job and your kid won't be a knucklehead. Do you want any of these wacky teachers giving your kids wisdom or character? Most of them are on Hillary's" lets kill America plan".Your right when you say
" Cast your vote for someone who best represents what you stand for" that's why I voted for Ted Cruz.
Principled,Conservative,Smart and Articulate.Stand for Something? Just Law, Order and The Constitution.
East : We are witnessing the sad effects of the Great Society mentality of the 60s which brought many changes / i.e., ' fundamental transformations ' to our educational system . Like many ideas, these concepts had good intentions but have led us down the road to this current hell ( i.e., a society of ignorant people who are nothing more than the useful tools of the leaders who control them. Control the message via the international MSM / educational system - control the people. )
I'll be the first to invite Megyn K. into the men's room
When he's right, he's right.
Hitlary supporters are completely brain dead, you Trumplickers just need to wake the hell up.
OK Jim - first of all the dollar has no redeemable value? What world do you live in?
Second - in the vast majority of the country the education system is far better than it has ever been. Where is the education system the worst? Red states that don't invest in it. If you don't believe me, look it up.
Stop blaming liberals for all the problems in the country - it was the GOP that nominated Trump - it was the moronic GOP voters that brought this crazy and unqualified candidate to the national stage.
Actually, once upon a time - a K-12 education meant something; when teachers use to teach.
Did you accidentaly post in the wrong thread? What does this have to do with the article here?
I am currently reading The Wright Brothers by David McCullough. Their schooling consisted of algebra, botany, chemistry, English composition, geology, geometry and Latin - in high school! Neither had a college education. My how things have changed.

Our country was founded on search for wisdom, created equal. In the process we acquired a wide array of short term knowledge in science, marketing, manufacturing, agriculture, etc.
We separated twice from power hungry greed once when our forefathers, forefathers went to the Netherlands before coming to Plymouth Rock and again on Independence Day. We were never in search of short term knowledge we were in search of long term wisdom, “that all men are created equal”.
Today’s power hungry greed have censored the very time tested books on the philosophies of wisdom from our public school libraries. These are the same books our forefathers and their forefathers studied. These are the same books Congress had printed and distributed to our schools to teach morals, ethics, integrity, virtues and character. Subjects that can be taught from the first day after birth until the last moment of life. These subject are not taught in the public education assembly lines dedicated to developing robots in human bodies.
Our best at any endevor do what they do different from most because different takes talent expressed rather than repressed.
