Mandatory Mental Illness Screening and the Drive to Confiscate Firearms

On Sunday in his weekly column Ron Paul discussed a recommendation by the United States Preventive Services Task Force.
The recommendation calls mental health screening of all Americans. “The task force wants to force health insurance companies to pay for the screening. Basic economics, as well as the Obamacare disaster, should have shown this task force that government health insurance mandates harm Americans,” writes Paul.
In addition to the economic aspects of the recommendation, Dr. Paul mentions the draconian effect it will have on the Second Amendment and the constitutionally guaranteed right to own firearms.
“Mandatory depression screening will not just raise insurance costs. In order to ensure that the screening mandate is being properly implemented, the government will need to create a database containing the results of the screenings. Those anti-gun politicians who want to forbid anyone labeled ‘mentally ill’ from owning a firearm will no doubt want to use this database as a tool to deprive individuals of their Second Amendment rights,” he writes.

In January the US Department of Health and Human Services modified the government’s Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Privacy Rule “to expressly permit certain HIPAA covered entities to disclose to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) the identities of individuals who are subject to a Federal ‘mental health prohibitor’ that disqualifies them from shipping, transporting, possessing, or receiving a firearm.”
Obama announced the new rule as he prepared to implement an executive order to “address surging gun violence,” a euphemism used to mask the real purpose of the government’s anti-gun agenda.
“If the preventive task force has its way, Americans could lose their Second Amendment, and possibly other, rights simply because they happened to undergo their mandatory depression screening when they were coping with a loved one’s passing or a divorce, or simply having a bad day,” Paul continues. “As anyone who has been mistakenly placed on the terrorist watch list can attest, it is very difficult to get off a government database even when the government clearly is in error. Thus, anyone mistakenly labeled as depressed will have to spend a great deal of time and money in what may be a futile attempt to get his rights back.”
For the government mandatory mental health screening is an ideal mechanism for stripping Americans of their right to own firearms. As Ron Paul notes, even “mental health professionals acknowledge that there is a great deal of subjectivity in mental health diagnosis.”
According to statistics compiled by the Kim Foundation 57.7 million Americans (26.2 percent) ages 18 and older or about one in four adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder.
But this is only the tip of the iceberg according to the government. A National Institute of Mental Health survey conducted between 2001 and 2003, found that 46 percent of Americans met criteria established by the American Psychiatric Association for having had mental illness. The categories included: anxiety disorders, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), “mood disorders,” “impulse-control disorders,” and a wide range of behavioral problems.
If the government and activists opposed to the Second Amendment have their way nearly half of all Americans will be denied their constitutional right to own a firearm.
As usual California leads the way. On New Year’s Day AB 1014 went into effect. The law allows police to confiscate firearms from an individual if a family member believes “gun safety” is an issue. California Gov. Jerry Brown signed the law after the 2014 shooting by Elliot Rodger near the University of California.

US TEETERS ON BRINK OF ECONOMIC COLLAPSE DUE TO ‘DOLLAR BUBBLE’ – RON PAUL “We do everything to perpetuate debt, increase debt, increase regulations”

Freedom-Quotes-ron pauljpgby SPUTNIK | APRIL 17, 2015

The United States risks sliding into the abyss of economic crisis, Ron Paul warned, pointing out that “there is a huge bubble with the dollar.”

The rising Dollar index, which reached its 12-year highs against the basket of currencies, is not a reason for optimism, warned Ron Paul, a former Republican congressman and two-time US presidential candidate.
“It’s not so much that the dollar is a great currency. It’s the fact that nothing else is any better. The fundamentals are a disaster. The economy is in bad shape when you have more than half the people hardly making ends meet,” Dr. Ron Paul underscored.

The United States is teetering on the brink of a disastrous financial crisis, the former congressman pointed out. The dollar’s “rally” is not a sign that the US economy is strengthening, but just a byproduct of a world’s surfeit of easy money.According to Dr. Paul, the Federal Reserve’s policies facilitated the unprecedented growth of the dollar against other major currencies, not real economic growth.

“We do not have a healthy economy because we do everything to perpetuate debt, increase debt, increase regulations,” he noted.
Unfortunately, we cannot predict when exactly the dollar bubble will finally burst, the former congressman underscored, referring to the Global financial crisis of 2007-2008, that was entirely unexpected. “Nobody warned us about that,” he remarked bitterly.

Some unexpected economic or geopolitical events may push the American economy to the brink, Dr. Paul noted, adding that plummeting oil prices have already affected the global market and major oil producers.”Right now, the markets have tried to correct things since ’08 and ’09 but the correction has been prohibited. It’s just like in the Depression; we prohibited, we delayed the inevitable,” Ron Paul stressed.

Ron Paul suggested that the collapse of the dollar and the stock market could be triggered by the Fed’s decision to raise interest rates. Remarkably, many experts believe the Fed will propose such a measure later this year.

RON PAUL’S HARD-CORE STANDS A PROBLEM FOR SON’S PRESIDENTIAL BID? “The America we thought we knew, ladies and gentlemen, is a mirage”

Editor’s note: Stands considered “hard-core” by mockingbird media asset the Washington Post were once considered liberal in the classical sense and widely held by the founding fathers.

Rand Paul wants to lead the United States. On Saturday in Texas, his father was speaking at a conference about how to leave it.

“A lot of times people think secession, they paint it as an absolute negative,” said former representative Ron Paul (R-Tex.). After all, Paul said, the American Revolution was a kind of secession. “You mean we should have been obedient to the king forever? So it’s all in the way you look at it.”
This weekend was a crucial one for Rand Paul, the Republican senator from Kentucky and un­declared candidate for the presidency. He was in California, trying to line up donors at an opulent retreat organized by the billionaire Koch brothers.

At the same time, his father — retired after 12 terms in Congress and three presidential runs — was in the ballroom of an airport hotel here, the final speaker at “a one-day seminar in breaking away from the central state.” He followed a series of speakers who said that the U.S. economy and political establishment were tottering and that the best response might be for states, counties or even individuals to break away.

“The America we thought we knew, ladies and gentlemen, is a mirage. It’s a memory. It’s a foreign country,” Jeff Deist, Ron Paul’s former press secretary and chief of staff, told the group. “And that’s precisely why we should take secession seriously.”

RON PAUL: HEY CONGRESS, WANT TO FIX THE COUNTRY?

Freedom-Quotes-ron pauljpgReversing the long, slow slide toward authoritarianism

by RON PAUL | FITS NEWS | JANUARY 5, 2015

Since New Year’s is traditionally a time for resolutions, and since the new Congress convenes this week, I thought I would suggest some New Year’s resolutions for Congress:

1) Bring the troops home — Congress should take the first, and most important, step toward ending our hyper-interventionist foreign policy by bringing our troops home and closing all overseas military facilities. The American people can no longer afford to bear the cost of empire.

2) Pass the Audit the Fed bill — The American people deserve to know the entire truth about how the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy benefits big-spending politicians and financial elites while harming average Americans.

3) Repeal the PATRIOT Act and rein in the National Security Agency — It is approaching two years since Edward Snowden revealed the extent of the NSA’s unconstitutional spying. Yet Congress still refuses to put a leash on the surveillance state. Congress should take the first step toward restoring respect for the Fourth Amendment by allowing Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act to expire.
4) Shut down the Transportation Security Administration — Treating all American air travelers as criminal suspects and subjecting them to intrusive and humiliating searches does nothing to enhance our security. Congress should shut down TSA and return responsibility for airline security to the airlines. Private businesses can effectively protect their customers and employees if the government gets out of the way.

5) End all corporate welfare — Federal programs that provide subsidies or other special benefits to politically-connected businesses cause economic inequality, distort the market, and waste taxpayer money. It also makes political and moral sense to cut welfare for the rich before cutting welfare for the poor. Congress should start dismantling the corporate welfare state by killing the Export-Import Bank and the Overseas Private Investment Corporation. Congress should also reject legislation proposed to benefit one industry or individual, such as Sheldon Adelson’s Internet gambling ban.

6) Repeal and Replace Obamacare — Many Americans are losing their insurance while others are facing increasing health care costs because of Obamacare. Repealing Obamacare is only a first step. Congress should both repeal all federal policies that distort the health care market and restore a true free market in health care.

7) End police militarization — The killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri in August brought the issue of police militarization to the center of national debate. Congress must end all federal programs that provide military equipment to local police forces.

8) Shut down the Department of Education — It is no coincidence that education in America has declined as federal control over education has increased. Congress should de-fund all federal education programs and return control over education to local communities and parents.

9) Allow individuals to opt out — A positive step toward restoring a free society would be allowing individuals to opt out of Obamacare and other federal mandates. Young people should also be granted the ability to opt out of paying Social Security and Medicare taxes in exchange for agreeing to never accept Social Security and Medicare benefits.

10) Allow state governments to opt out — If Congress lacks the votes to end the war on drugs, repeal Obamacare, or roll back other unconstitutional federal programs, it should at least respect the rights of states to set their own policies in these areas. Federal prohibition of state laws nullifying Obamacare or legalizing marijuana turns the Tenth Amendment upside down.

By adopting these resolutions, Congress can make 2015 the year America begins reversing the long, slow slide toward authoritarianism, empire, national bankruptcy, and economic decline.

Nevada Standoff a Symptom of Increasing Authoritarianism

The nation’s attention has for the past few weeks been riveted by a standoff in Nevada between armed federal agents and the Bundys, a ranching family who believe the federal government is exceeding its authority by accessing “fees” against ranchers who graze cattle on government lands. Outrage over the government’s use of armed agents to forcibly remove the Bundys’ cattle led many Americans to travel to Nevada to engage in non-violent civil disobedience in support of the family.

Ron Paul: Syria Chemical Attack Looks Like a “False Flag.” Pat Buchanan & Vladamir Putin Agree

Both Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan have said the chemical weapon attack in Syria looks like a false flag event designed as a pretext for America to attack. Russia president Vladamir Putin also said the chemical attack looks like the rebels carried it out themselves to use as a justification for the U.S. to get involved.

Ron Paul Departs With ‘Our Constitution Has Failed’

11/14/2012 Rep. Ron Paul, the iconic libertarian congressman from Texas, has delivered what will most likely be his final address to Congress. In a sprawling, 52-minute speech to the House chamber, Paul lambasted U.S. government, politicians and special interests, declaring that the U.S. people must return to virtue before the government allows them to be free, and that the Constitution has failed to limit the scope of an authoritarian bureaucracy.

Learn why the two-party system is fundamentally corrupt and how a no-party system could save American democracy

As we approach the Presidential elections, we always think there are two choices – Democrat (Obama) or Republican  (Romney). Both these political puppets are bought out, they lie and they deceive,  just like our State government leaders.

 

We were impressed by Obama in 2008 – Now we see his DECEPTION in the movie OBAMA DECEPTION.


US DEBT CLOCK – WE’RE FUCKED

With the limited choices,  the Unites States will fail – see http://www.usdebtclock.org/

Learn why the two-party system is fundamentally corrupt and how a no-party system could save American democracy.

DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans uncovers the truth about how corporations have bought the American electoral and legislative process through the power of lobbyists, campaign contributions, and political action committees. Using historical details, such as the development of the two-party system and the advent of third-party candidates throughout U.S. history, DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans exposes how the two major parties have allowed corporations, businesses, and politically-motivated wealthy individuals to manipulate elections, bribe elected officials, and silence the average American voter.

Exposing the ineptitude and gang-like mentalities of both parties, Ventura advocates the replacement of the two-party system with a no-party system based on the ideals of our Founding Fathers. As election time rolls around, this is most certainly the book that should be looked at for reforming our electoral system.
