Creepy Opt Out Ad

In the first Generation Opportunity video, a young woman who has just signed up for an insurance exchange under Obamacare is shown visiting an OB/GYN. A nurse guides her into a hospital room, where she changes into a flimsy gown and inserts her legs into a set of stirrups. The nurse leaves right before Creepy Uncle Sam emerges to examine her. “Don’t let government play doctor,” flashes the text on the screen as the woman screams over the sound of haunting circus-like music. The ad closes with a shot of Creepy Uncle Sam staring straight into the camera clinching a speculum.

OptOut

In another video that uses the same premise, a young man visits a hospital and is told to curl up on the bed in the examination room. Just like the other ad, Creepy Uncle Sam appears out of nowhere and snaps on a pair of latex gloves for what is assumed to be a prostate exam.

According to Yahoo News, Generation Opportunity plans to spend up to $750,000 on the messaging push and tour, which extends through the fall. The group hasn’t announced the list of the college towns where it plans to visit, but organizers said the schedule will in part be based on areas where Enroll America workers and volunteers have a strong presence.

The campaign is one part of a larger network of conservative groups that are shifting attention away from the battle in Washington to the ground game in the states. In one recently announced campaign, the tea party-organizing group FreedomWorks called on its activists to “burn your Obamacare card.” (The act is symbolic more than it is literal, of course, since there isn’t any such card.) Another group, Americans for Prosperity, plans to host events at sporting events, festivals and town fairs around the country to urge people away from the exchanges.

Opt out of TSA scanners, write or complain against them and get put on Homeland Security’s ‘domestic extremists’ list

The Examiner is reporting that an informant at the Department of Homeland Security under the direction of Obama appointee Janet Napolitano, considers all citizens who participate in today’s ‘National Opt Out Day’ at airports across the country to be ‘domestic extremists.’

But that’s not all.

DHS also considers any citizen who merely criticizes TSA scanning procedures or who writes articles critical of the procedures in the ‘alternative media’ to be a ‘domestic extremist.’

According to the mole inside Homeland Security, Obama and company do not take kindly to being criticized or opposed in this current outrageous invasion of privacy by the federal government. DHS personnel composed a document approved by Napolitano which implies that critics or those who refuse to go through the ‘naked scanners’ are to be considered potential criminals.

The document specifically addresses ‘the alternative media,’ the assumption being that bloggers, citizen journalists, and writers who report for news organizations that are outside the ‘mainstream media’ such as CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the AP, Time, and Newsweek, are to be considered ‘extremist’ if they merely write anything critical of TSA procedures, which include groping, prodding, and fondling,

Canada Free Press broke the story when they wrote: that they were contacted by a source within the DHS who is troubled by the terminology and content of an internal memo reportedly issued yesterday at the hand of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. Indeed, both the terminology and content contained in the document are troubling. The dissemination of the document itself is restricted by virtue of its classification, which prohibits any manner of public release. While the document cannot be posted or published, the more salient points are revealed here.

The memo, which actually takes the form of an administrative directive, appears to be the product of undated but recent high level meetings between Napolitano, John Pistole, head of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA),and one or more of Obama’s national security advisors. This document officially addresses those who are opposed to, or engaged in the disruption of the implementation of the enhanced airport screening procedures as “domestic extremists.”

The introductory paragraph of the multi-page document states that it is issued “in response to the growing public backlash against enhanced TSA security screening procedures and the agents conducting the screening process.” Implicit within the same section is that the recently enhanced security screening procedures implemented at U.S. airports, and the measures to be taken in response to the negative public backlash as detailed [in this directive], have the full support of the President. In other words, Obama not only endorses the enhanced security screening, but the measures outlined in this directive to be taken in response to public objections.

The terminology contained within the reported memo is indeed troubling. It labels any person who “interferes” with TSA airport security screening procedure protocol and operations by actively objecting to the established screening process, “including but not limited to the anticipated national opt-out day” as a “domestic extremist.” The label is then broadened to include “any person, group or alternative media source” that actively objects to, causes others to object to, supports and/or elicits support for anyone who engages in such travel disruptions at U.S. airports in response to the enhanced security procedures.

For individuals who engaged in such activity at screening points, it instructs TSA operations to obtain the identities of those individuals and other applicable information and submit the same electronically to the Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division, the Extremism and Radicalization branch of the Office of Intelligence & Analysis (IA) division of the Department of Homeland Security.

It would appear that the Department of Homeland Security is not only prepared to enforce the enhanced security procedures at airports, but is involved in gathering intelligence about those who don’t. They’re making a list and most certainly will be checking it twice. Meanwhile, legitimate threats to our air travel security (and they DO exist) seem to be taking a back seat to the larger threat of the multitude of non-criminal American citizens who object to having their Constitutional rights violated.

Homeland Security under Obama has a history of labeling innocent citizens as ‘domestic terrorists’ or ‘domestic extremists’ if they participate in Tea Party protests, promote gun rights, insist that the government follow the Constitution, oppose the numerous instances of power-grabs by the Executive Branch, or even merely protest the move to seize the healthcare industry through the colossal Marxist abomination known as ‘ObamaCare.’

WorldNet Daily reported that In April of 2009, a newly unclassified Department of Homeland Security report warned against the possibility of violence by unnamed “right-wing extremists” concerned about illegal immigration, increasing federal power, restrictions on firearms, abortion and the loss of U.S. sovereignty and singles out returning war veterans as particular threats.

The report, titled “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” dated April 7, states that “threats from white supremacist and violent anti-government groups during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts.”

However, the document, goes on to suggest worsening economic woes, potential new legislative restrictions on firearms and “the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.”

The report from DHS’ Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines right-wing extremism in the U.S. as “divided into those groups, movements and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups) and those that are mainly anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

In December of 2009 Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the aviation security system failed when a young Nigerian man with a powerful explosive hidden on his body was allowed to board a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas Day. Napolitano says investigators are examining Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab (OO’-mahr fah-ROOK’ ahb-DOOL’-moo-TAH’-lahb) was allowed the flight despite being on a terrorist watch list.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, ” The System Worked” before ” The system Failed”

MR. GREGORY: Right. But, Secretary Napolitano, the question is whether the system really did do everything that it should have done. He was on a terror watch list. His father had raised concerns about him being radicalized to the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria. He was not on a do not fly list, which is a, a separate kind of cataloguing of threats. Do you think the fact that he was on a watch list should have triggered a secondary screening in the airport in Amsterdam?

SEC’Y NAPOLITANO: Well, this is the way it works. He was on a TIDE list. There are over a half a million people on that TIDE list, and that information was shared throughout the federal family. There’s no question about information sharing here. There had never been any additional information supplied that would move him to what’s called a Selectee list, where you are–where you do that kind of secondary screening, or indeed to the No Fly list, which requires specific, credible, derogatory information. Now, I think one of the things we will do–because that’s a system that has been in place for a number of years. One of the things we will do is go back and look and say, well, maybe in this day and age, with the kind of environment we have, we should change some of those protocols. But right now he, he was on a, a generic list, if I could use that phrase, but we did not have the kind of information that under the current rules would elevate him.

So- they now are groping law abiding citizens instead of doing their job….?

Sex Education for Kindergardeners, posted with vodpod

HELENA, MONTANA — An overflow crowd jammed the Helena school board meeting Tuesday night to voice their concerns — and support — about a proposal to extend sex education to children as young as kindergarten age.

According to the 62-page draft proposal, beginning in kindergarten, school nurses will teach students proper terms such as “nipple, breast, penis, scrotum and uterus.” Once they are promoted to first grade, children will learn that sexual relations could happen between two men or two women. By the time students are 10 years old, instruction will include the various ways people can have intercourse, be it vaginally, orally or through “anal penetration,” according to the proposal.

“As educators and as parents and as communities, we need to be more proactive in helping inform our students at an appropriate age what the risk factors are associated with their own behaviors so that they can make better decisions about their well-being,” Dr. Bruce Messinger, the Superintendent of Helena Public Schools, told Fox News.

The Montana Family Foundation is fighting the proposed changes, telling Fox News its biggest concern is teaching graphic sexual detail to kids who are not emotionally able to process or comprehend it. If the changes pass, kids as young as 5 will begin to learn medically accurate names for a number of both male and female “private parts.”

“The problem is they think it would be age appropriate to teach different sexual positions and different sexual variations to 10 year olds,” said Jeff Laszloffy of the Montana Family Foundation.

Messinger said parents will be able to have their kids opt-out, but Laszloffy said teachers want to have the same option.

“I think the reason it is such a concern is it tramples parental rights, it places government squarely between parents and their children,” Laszloffy said. Laszloffy said teachers are calling to seek legal advice about whether they can be forced to teach the information, and parents are threatening to pull children out of the public school system. “Parents and taxpayers are not for this,” he said.

Tuesday night’s meeting was heated as school board trustees heard from only 64 of the more than 300 people who jammed the auditorium. More than 100 others stood outside the Front Street Learning Center as a sound system broadcast the proceedings.

Melanie Reynolds, a district health officer, defended the proposed curriculum, saying early education and intervention was needed to prevent HIV infection or other sexually transmitted diseases. She cited a report that said 40 percent of reported Chlamydia cases in county were people between the ages of 14 and 18, the Helena Independent Record reported.

Angela Helland-Hansen told the board that she was surprised to see that staff from Planned Parenthood were included in the committee that developed the document.

“Why are we allowing Planned Parenthood to help with this when they stand to profit from these people who will be their future clients?” the Record reported.

Two middle school girls said an abstinence-based program would be more effective to reduce teen pregnancy and disease than what is being proposed, the newspaper reported. There currently is no sexual education being taught in middle school.

Homosexuality taught K-12 shocks parents , posted with vodpod



Helena schools’ draft sex-ed document causing controversy

A new health curriculum under consideration in Helena Public Schools is causing quite a controversy.

The document covers everything from nutrition to injury prevention, but the section titled “Human Sexuality” is drawing the most concern.

It lays out sex education topics for each grade, K through 12. In the first grade, children would be taught that human beings can love people of the same gender; in second grade, kids are taught not to make fun of people by calling them “gay” or “queer.”

By fifth grade, they are taught there are several types of intercourse, and by the sixth grade, the draft document states that students should, “Understand that sexual intercourse includes but is not limited to vaginal, oral, or anal penetration; using the penis, fingers, tongue or objects.”

Helena resident Noah Genger noted, “There are some things that are more controversial in nature, that are more personal, and also for most people religious views, and I think the school went a little too far in drafting when they crossed those lines.”

Another Helena resident, Carol Carpenter, said, “It is a health curriculum, it is not just a sex ed curriculum, and there are some wonderful points in it. The areas that some people have concerns with are areas that can be discussed in the home. I don’t think that it should be thrown out or totally voided because of a few language issues.”

The school board will hear public comment on the issue at their regularly-scheduled meeting on Tuesday, July 13th; all area residents are welcome to attend.
