O little town of Bethlehem

Merry Christmas to everyone. May God bless you and yours.

O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love
O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the King
And Peace to men on earth

How silently, how silently
The wondrous gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heaven.
No ear may his His coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive him still,
The dear Christ enters in.

O holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sin and enter in
Be born to us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel

DHS Implementing No Work List: Citizens Must Get Government Approval to Work in Private Sector Jobs

You’ve heard of no fly and no buy lists – get ready for no work lists. Millions of workers now must apply to the DHS and prove they are not terrorists in order to be granted permission by the government to work.

On the Alex Jones Show today, a caller pointed to information posted on a union website for ironworkers spelling out details on the Department of Homeland Security’s TWIC and SWAC programs.

TWIC is short for Transportation Worker Identification Credential and SWAC stands for Secure Worker Access Consortium.

TWIC “is a biometric credential that ensures only vetted workers are eligible to enter a secure construction site, unescorted,” Ironworkers Local 361 in Ozone Park, New York, explains. “Before issuing a TWIC, TSA must conduct a security threat assessment on the TWIC applicant. An applicant who, as a result of the assessment, is determined to not pose a security threat, will be issued a TWIC card.”

In other words, construction workers in New York will need permission from the TSA and DHS in order to practice their profession and earn a living. It was much the same in the former Soviet Union and authoritarian states such as China where the government determines all aspects of an individual’s life and where even the mildly rebellious are severely punished...

I occasionally peruse the job listings just for shits and grins, to see what (if anything) is out there. More and more, I've been seeing this "TWIC" card requirement, especially where port and refinery related jobs are concerned. Personally, I say they can "stick their TWIC". You know, the level of "security" bullshit that has come around lately tells me one of two things: the "terrorists" have won, or the government is using them as a convenient excuse to strangle our Liberty. I lean toward the latter, because the government created the "terrorists", and in fact have become terrorists themselves. So bow down to your masters, or tell them to fuck off. I choose option #2. The "TSA", TWIC, and all their "security" bullshit is nothing more than submission training for you proles. Kneel before your gods, and sacrifice your Freedom for false "security". Me, I'll be investing in lead...

Subject: Prepared statement re Demari

Dear MSSA Friends,

This evening at 6 PM is the expulsion hearing for Demari DeReu for inadvertently leaving her hunting rifle locked in the trunk of her car at school.

MSSA Director Tom Opre will present my prepared statement to the Columbia Falls High School Board of Trustees at the hearing this evening.

FYI, my prepared statement is below. Also FYI, from 1996 to 2007, 236 Montana kids were expelled (not including those who were only suspended) under the auspices of the federal Gun Free Schools Act. Given the trend, that number is probably 350 by now, and probably over 300 were incidents much like Demari - a kid just forgot to take a hunting rifle out of their car or pickup.

There WILL be a bill before the 2011 Legislature to curb this abuse of Montana kids by school officials.

Columbia Falls High School
Board of Trustees

Dear Trustees,

This evening the Board considers the possibility of expelling a model student from the Columbia Falls High School. You are forced to consider this possibility specifically because of the actions of one or more of your employees.

Unfortunately, you have a larger issue to wrestle with than whether or not to expel Demari DeReu. You will have figured out by now that Demari doesn't deserve expulsion and you will probably let her off for "time served."

However, the larger problem are your employees who fueled this incident, employees who overreacted needlessly and chose to make a mountain out of a molehill. Your employees have claimed that in this type of incident their "hands are tied" by the federal Gun Free Schools Act. In offering this excuse for their misconduct, your employees are either incompetent or they are trying to dodge personal responsibility.

The Gun Free Schools Act says, "Nothing in this section shall apply to a firearm that is lawfully stored inside a locked vehicle on school property, …" What Demari did was activity protected by federal law, not prohibited by it. Your employees were wrong.

Your employees have injured an innocent person. Whatever employees are responsible for this fiasco, and for being either incompetent or dishonest, have caused Demari and her family a great deal of emotional and psychological trauma. Your employees have exposed Demari to public scorn and ridicule. Your employees may have damaged Demari's opportunity to enter college or obtain scholarships for college. With reckless disregard for the welfare and future of this model student and her family, your employees made a snap judgment that was wrong and harmful.

So, the larger question before the Board this evening is, what will you do about whatever of your employees are responsible for causing this problem?

Demari volunteered that her unloaded and cased hunting rifle was locked in the trunk of her car. She asked your employees if she could take her car home and remove her hunting rifle. She was denied that opportunity. Your employees could have told her that the rifle locked in her vehicle was protected by federal law and no big deal -- don't worry about it. Instead of that, she was suspended and suspended in a way that forced her into an expulsion hearing. Her parents were told both in writing and verbally that she would be expelled for a year. The intent of school officials was to hang her. In defense they claim their "hands are tied" by federal law. They were wrong.

It turns out that your employees made a very serious mistake, a mistake because federal law protects rather than prohibits what Demari did, and serious because an innocent person was injured because of their mistake.

Your employees may claim that they were unaware of the fact that Demari's conduct was protected, not prohibited, by federal law. These employees are highly compensated, probably paid twice the median income in Montana or more, and hold themselves out to be professionals. You hired them because of their supposed competence and professionalism. They also have authority that, if used unwisely, can injure students in their charge. Because of their authority and advertised and assumed professionalism, they are paid to be versed in things such as federal laws they claim to enforce. For the amount they are paid and the responsibility they accept, they have a duty to not be misinformed. Saying, "Gosh, I didn't know" is simply unacceptable.

The community and many others are waiting with great interest to learn what the Board of Trustees will do about the mistakes or misconduct of its employees.

Sincerely yours,

Gary Marbut, president
Montana Shooting Sports Association

Here is another update from Gary Marbut.


Fwd: Dear MSSA Friends,

Pasted below is a report from Sean Frampton, Demari's attorney, about
Demari's school board expulsion hearing last evening.

Although the school board voted unanimously to not expel Demari, I am
disappointed that she is on probation and her record will only be
cleared at the end of the school year if she has no further
violations. I do not believe this incident was a violation (except a
violation of Demari by school administrators). Continuing probation
implies that Demari did something wrong. I don't like that implication.

Also, I've heard no reports that the school board will address the
mistakes made by their employees, school administrators, or seek to
revise their flawed school policy that is at variance with federal law.

BTW, I have finished drafting a bill to fix state law to prevent
further occurrences like this. That draft has been delivered to
requesting legislators. Expect that bill to be introduced into the
upcoming legislative session and to be added to MSSA's already
extensive legislative agenda.

Gary Marbut, president
Montana Shooting Sports Association
author, Gun Laws of Montana

The meeting ended with a good result for Demari. More
than 75 people showed up in support of Demari at a location that was
changed at the last minute to accommodate the expected large
crowds. Approximately 10 to 15 picketers with signs such as "Free
Demari" were standing outside of the hearing place. The local and
regional print and television media also attended.

The hearing began with the school's position. Of
particular note was the Principal's recitation of the number of times
that the policy had been communicated to the students, including a
review by the teacher on the first day of class and specific
announcements during hunting season.

Demari told her story to the Board herself. She
testified consistently with the position communicated in the
media. I then spoke to the legal issues. My main point was that
Montana never intended to "trap" kids with this law. I found two
instances in the legislative record where representatives inquired
and satisfied themselves that the proposed bill (now statute) would
not trap them. One such legislature said "he does not want to see
rural kids with a .22 in the back of their truck trapped by the
bill." Another asked if a student "could bring a truck with a gun in
a gun rack and park it there all day." In both instances, the
response to their inquiry was that a hunting rifle "wouldn't be a
concern of this legislation." I then addressed the exception in
federal law that the Gun Free School Act "shall [not] apply to a
firearm that is lawfully stored inside a locked vehicle on school
property." 20 USCS 7151.

Two other interesting points I raised were that when
a school teacher, in reviewing the policies, instructed Demari and
other students to just call the principal if they accidently leave a
hunting rifle in the car and they will be allowed to take it home
and, impliedly, without punishment, such a statement constituted an
oral policy that was different and less strict than their written
policies. Also, I argued that the school officials did not follow
their own policy which requires that prior to dispensing disciplinary
action, the school authorities shall consider extenuating circumstances.

Larry Wilson, the only NRA member on the Board of
Trustees, moved to deny the expulsion, have Demari's record and her
suspension expunged at the end of the year, be readmitted immediately
into school, and given all of the assistance necessary to catch up on
her homework and be allowed to take her exams. Superintended
Nicosia, who initially had recommended expulsion, withdrew his
recommendation and stated that he will do everything within his power
to help Demari make up her work. The Board unanimously passed the motion.

At one point in the hearing, Demari became very
emotional. The issue was whether this suspension would affect
Demari's ability to enter college. The Principal said that he spoke
to a number of schools, including the University of Montana where
Demari wants to go, and represented that this suspension will not
hurt her education. Demari asked her attorney (for permission - GM)
to speak and when she spoke, she became very emotional about how this
has already affected her chances because she has at least two F
grades due to her inability to take mid-term exams. The school
authorities assured her that they would do everything necessary to help her.

Eleven people spoke in public comment. All were in
favor of Demari. Most speakers received applause after their
comments. Tom Opre, a Board member of the Montana Shooting Sports
Association, received an applause when he said that the school
district needed "common sense policies." Fred Hodgebloom generated
applause when he said the motion should be amended to give Demari an
apology and to suspend the school officials for their conduct. Two
representatives from the Montana legislature were present and in
support of Demari. Jerry O'Neil, who represents the district which
comprises Columbia Falls, advised that he currently has a place
holder for a bill and would be willing to sponsor a bill to amend the
laws to make them more clear.

FEMA list of Presidential Executive Orders

Executive Orders
The FEMA list of Presidential Executive Orders

On February 16, 1962, President John Kennedy signed several Executive Orders which would allegedly give certain dictatorial powers to appointed bureaucrats in the event a "National Emergency" should be declared by the President — whichever president is sitting in office at the designated time. At the president's discretion "in any time of increased international tension or economic or financial crisis", the E.O.'s could theoretically be enacted.

These E.O.'s signed by Kennedy would give authority to the Federal Emergency Management Agency to control: communications, energy, food, fuel, farms, transportation, highways, railroads, inland waterways and seaports, health, education and welfare, drafts citizens into work forces under government supervision; relocation of populations, designates areas to be abandoned as 'unsafe'; relocates communities, and controls all public storage facilities.

On February 27, 1962 Kennedy signed E.O. 11051 designating FEMA as the authorized agency to implement the above orders, and which authority can be re-designated by the original authority.

President Nixon signed E.O. 11490 combining all the above to be enacted in one fell swoop; on July 20, 1979 Carter added a few minor amendments to them; and, in June, 1994 then president Bill Clinton signed E.O. 12919, which appears to encompass all of the E.O.'s.

We have found no Executive Orders that would nullify any of the above, so it appears they are all considered to be on the books at the time of this posting.

Given there is no Constitutional authority for any president to declare a "National Emergency," we have wondered how the orchestraters of this plan expected to successfully execute the E.O.'s.

The plan for total control of every aspect of our lives has been under construction for a long time. As you read these executive orders, bear in mind that they mean nothing by themselves. They are not law, nor can they become law by and of themselves.

However, under legislation that is currently pending in most (if not all) states, they could potentially take on significant meaning.

The Emergency Health Powers legislation, pending in state capitols all across America — if passed — would give the governor the power to declare a state of health emergency by executive order. He then would be able to hand the reigns of power to whomever he chooses — including the state's emergency management agency, which could essentially act as an arm of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Apart from — and sometimes combined with — these Emergency Health Powers Acts are varying forms of "anti-terror" bills that are virtually redefining the words "terror," "terrorism," and "terrorist."

States are busy right now, creating their own versions of the federal Office of Homeland Security. These state offices will oversee the process and details of the implementation of these orders. That is why it is so critical to get the legislation stopped in the states. For more information, or to read the bills we've compiled, go to the War on Americans is in the States section of this website.

After you're done reading these executive orders, you might wish to print them out and take them to your state legislators, to emphasize to them the importance of defeating the bills that are currently pending, that would be the final piece needed to implement the controllers plans.

And now, the list:

Executive Order #10995: Seizure of all communications media in the United States.

Executive Order #10997: Seizure of all electric power fuels and minerals, public and private.

Executive Order #10999: Seizure of all means of transportation, including personal cars, trucks or vehicles of any kind and total control of highways, seaports and waterways.

Executive Order #11000: Seizure of all American people for work forces under federal supervision including the splitting of families if the government finds it necessary.

Executive Order #11001: Seizure of all health, education and welfare facilities, public and private.

Executive Order #11002: Empowered the postmaster general to register all men, women and children in the U.S.

Executive Order #11003: Seizure of all airports and aircraft.

Executive Order #11004: Seizure of all housing and finance authorities to establish Forced Relocation Designated areas to be abandoned as "unsafe."

Executive Order #11005: Seizure of all railroads, inland waterways and storage facilities, public and private.

Executive Order #12919: Signs June 3, 1994, by President Clinton. Encompasses all the above executive orders.
