CONGRESS FAILS U.S. CITIZENS...
Our elected officials in the Senate decided to take an early weekend and skip the NSA hearings on the spying of American citizens. Granted, the hearing was set for a late Thursday afternoon of 2:30 pm, and I understand that is much too late in the day for our Senators to uphold their sworn obligations (sarcasm).
The current oath for Senators that was enacted in 1884 is this:
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the
Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and
domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I
take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose
of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of
the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."
Furthermore, the absence of these Senators ensured that any meaningful actions will not be taken against the NSA. The Hill was also unable to get a record of who was in attendance of these hearing. Hopefully, the negligent Senators will be ferreted out and exposed for their lack of duty.
It is no surprise that Congress is not concerned about the citizens of these United States, but rather special interest groups and other monied interests. The inept example of government leadership is just another reason to prepare for the collapse of our society. When the producers are outnumber in the electorate, and the government is only concerned about their power, then the patriots need to take heed.
Panem et circenses, when the citizens of Rome only became interested in bread and circuses, the fall of one of the mightiest empires was all but certain. Patriots and preppers take note, prepare, and stay vigilant for I fear that the end of our empire is all but certain.
