without a warrant. There’s a much lower standard, to obtain a “trap and trace” PEN register, court order in order to snoop the meta data and even more from your cell phones.
The IRS is one of 13 federal agencies which can set up a device which acts as a fake cell phone tower to siphon off data from your phones.
According to the Guardian, police departments in 20 states also have this ability.
Meanwhile, the IRS is continuing to refuse non-profit status to TEA party groups. The Obama Justice Department has let Lois Lerner off the hook for denying such status to hundreds of such groups beginning in 2009.
Please ask your congress-critter to further defund the IRS until this problem is rectified.
Blog visitors have noted the slowdown in output Down on the Pharm. Your friendly Pharmer is busy with the health care career, the usual summer growing season and……… starting a new business!! This fufills the long standing dream of becoming an American Capitalist by producing a useful and wonderful product and selling it for profit!
Profit is that wonderful thing which allows us to have income and sustain ourselves and our families. Capitalism is the most wonderful economic system on the planet, and, compared to other systems, has drawn the greatest number of humans out of poverty. If all participants religiously avoid stealing the work and property of others, Capitalism will reach perfection as an economic system.
The best way to encourage fellow Americans towards productivity, excellence and the overt and joyous seeking of profit is to learn and participate in the actual process of owning a business.
The next consideration for this blog is to reformat it to escape the purgatory of Google suppression. Meanwhile, there will be occasional publications addressing the need to protect freedom of speech, and religion, and defend against tyranny.
Under the Wellness and Empowerment Section of Ebony is an opinion piece by Deacon Emma Akpan, who bemoans the lack of church preaching to promote birth control and abortion. She cites that Black women have the highest rate of unwanted pregnancies and highest infant mortality rate. Then she proposes abortion to lower this problem. (Yes, killing babies to lower the mortality rate.)
“Black women are the most likely to deliver children who won’t live to see their first birthday.” (Abortion is strongly associated with subsequent premature births, which is a huge contributing factor in infant mortality.)
“Black women are also more likely to experience unintended pregnancies than their White counter parts due to poverty.” (The relationship of sex and pregnancy is much more significant. Does poverty cause more sex to happen? Why has poverty not been mitigated in the last six years?)
“The pastor has the opportunity to erase the shame associated with unplanned pregnancies”. (By recommending death for the baby?)
Readers can check again to make sure this was not missed…… because the opinion piece appears to completely ignore the fact that Black babies are aborted at a much higher rate than any other demographic group in the U.S.. Abortion is by far the leading cause of death for Black Americans. This appears to be not enough for Deacon Akpan. (Has Margaret Sanger been ‘reincarnated’?)
What is Deacon Akpan’s problem? According to the article, she works for Planned Parenthood as a community organizer.
Breitbart calls this a shock, but it’s NOT. Brian Williams, the NBC Nightly News anchor has had to recant a 12 year old tale about his helecopter being forced down by an RPG hit during the 2003 Iraq war. This often repeated story has been inflated to the status of media legend. Williams was forced to admit his lie during an interview with Stars and Stripes after crew members of the helicopter which had been hit said that the “news” man was not on board, nor was he on the other two helicopters in that group. His helicopter arrived at the site about an hour after the emergency landing, according to crew from the 159th Aviation Regiment’s Chinook which had been hit by the RPG.
NBC has become rather well known for inventing “news” after doctoring the 911 tape of George Zimmerman, (a disposable Democrat voter) appear racist, and has provided numerous other reasons to find other news sources.
Update 2-7-2015… It appears that Williams will be taking a hiatus from his anchor position on NBC Nightly News.
By now, many of those who have paid close attention to news of the protests in and about Ferguson understand that they have been orchestrated in supposed response to a fictional narrative spun around a “gentle giant” Michael Brown. From this base, leftists are trying to reenact the 60s and pretending to oppose the deteriorating race relations that they themselves have brought about.
When confronted with available evidence, the grand jury concluded that police officer Darren Wilson committed no crime, and refused to bring charges against him. Despite this, he has resigned from the force.
A large proportion of protesters and rioters in Ferguson are rent-a-mobs, bussed in from elsewhere. For example, 15 out of 16 members arrested from this leftie group of protesters was found to be from out of town says KMOV.com. One of them was from Berkeley, CA. CNN claimed that out of towners were inciting violence in Ferguson as early as last summer.
Agents of Homeland Security have been nesting in and around Ferguson. We were NOT supposed to be made aware of this fact, as former employee, Mark Paffrath, discovered when he lost his job at the Drury Plaza Hotel in Chesterfield, MO, not 30 miles from Ferguson. He reports seeing 70-plus Fed vehicles parked there, and had posted a photo and video of them online. Per Mr. Paffrath, a U.S. Navy veteran, hotel management told him that his actions threatened a $115,000 contract that the hotel had with the Feds.
People are starting to tire of the lefties trying to reinvent and relive the civil rights movement. More rational folks find that protecting their own Ferguson neighborhood is more important than hosting a government backed riot. Back in the 60s, Black people had good reasons to be protesting the unjust rule of mob, that caused extreme cases of abuse, and loss of life, as well as a routine environment of disrespect. Now some of the new ‘civil rights’ charlatans, and low IQ media flunkies seem to be asking for the rule of mob to taint the legal process that protects our rights.
From Rebel Pundit comes a message from Chicago activists, Paul McKinley, Mark Carter, Joseph Watkins and Harold “Noonie” Ward. They’re voicing the frustration felt by many Black Americans who are Done with Democrats.
The roof of the Southside Cremation services building was set ablaze during the creamation of an 800 pound cadaver. The Henrico County, Virginia, facility was able to control the fire and later resumed the remainder of the process. The family of the deceased was not present, but perhaps after this news event, has a clan legend to tell.
“Uncle ______ was sooo big, he set a grease fire at the crematory……..”

Jill Stanek had to translate* so that readers could better understand Jack, a woman who says (s)he is a “femme non-binary person”, and who feels left out of the leftie narrative with respect to women’s choice, access, health. Yep, the war on women is passing Jack by.
Jack’s story was used to illustrate a persistent theme Jill Stanek has been elucidating. The left is by no means a unified group of people, all satisfied with their general social and political direction. There is quite a bit of dissent in the ranks.
Pharmer’s issue: People often want to put a label on themselves and fit into a special little group. And they want recognition of that special little group.
There are more labels for sexual identity than any person could memorize (and they change all the time).
Sex expression and performance has always been a sort of continuous gradient, made more plastic and variable by the endocrine disruptors pushed by the medical and other industries. Impinging on the gradient is the fact that some people will always want to step outside of occupational roles dominated by one sex or the other.
Why are people so fond if being pigeonholed? It’s as though they encourage conflict and victimization in order to fill up the time that they spend NOT building, creating, producing and uplifting.
