Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

The UK elite are scared.

The heard the British crowd yell "Off with their heads" at Charles and Camilla. They hear Max Keiser, Gerald Celente and Judge Andrew Napolitano allude to bloody revolution.
The fiery, but relatively harmless packages to the Maryland governor and Janet Napolitano sends a clear message, "NEXT time, this won't be so harmless."

Like Lexington and Concord, the death of one public official won't be isolated. The death of one official is murder, the death of hundreds is insurrection, the death of thousands is revolution.

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."
Thomas Jefferson

p.s.

The he should introduce legislation to get the UK out of the bloody EU.

When They Do Away With All Of The Invasive Govt Surveillance

and I mean every last camera they installed removed. And allow them to have their firearms back unrestricted I would go hmmmm.
Until then it's all crumbs.

Snippets of fluffy news within a very dark history.

Reporting from London — [Twain: Fuffy news...]

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg pledged Friday to restore "our great British freedoms," saying that too many basic liberties had been eroded in the name of keeping Britain safe from terrorism. [Twain: True nuff.]

Clegg, the leader of the Liberal Democrats... accused previous Labor Party governments of a relentless assault on civil liberties, pledging to reverse it. [Twain: True nuff.]

"The British people have become accustomed to a vast array of infringements on their freedom: widespread and indiscriminate surveillance, their DNA being held [in a database] unnecessarily, the proliferation of new criminal offenses and the growing number of reasons state inspectors can barge into their homes," Clegg said at the Institute for Government in London in his first major speech of the new year. [Twain: True nuff.]

Clegg said. "2011 will be the year we give people's freedom back." [Twain: A promise.]

[Rhetorical passages navigated without a shipwreck in sight. Skippering forward. Looking about... ]

But he declined to give details on the most contentious aspect of his civil liberties agenda: Britain's so-called "control orders," which allow authorities to keep terrorism suspects under virtual house arrest without charging them in court. [Twain: Oh dear. This was so fluffy till now.]

Fewer than a dozen people are currently under such orders. Most must wear an electronic monitoring device, are restricted on where they can go and are banned from using cellphones. [Twain: Oh dear. Fluffy is sick.]

Authorities say that, if left free, some of the suspects might immediately attempt to plot or carry out a terrorist attack. But they cannot be brought to court, officials say, because the evidence against them would be inadmissible under normal judicial rules or would compromise intelligence-gathering methods and secrets if made public. [Twain: Fluffy?...]

Clegg's party has called for the control order to be scrapped...

"The true horror of this security nonsense has taken years to mature," Shami Chakrabarti, director of the advocacy group Liberty, wrote in the Times of London on Friday. "Seven out of the 46 people [who have been] subject to the system have completely disappeared — an escape rate of 15% that would get any prison governor dismissed." [Twain: Fluffy?!...]

Clegg's approval ratings and his party's poll numbers have plunged over the last few months, especially among voters who now disgustedly view the Liberal Democrats as the Conservatives' lackeys. Clegg is eager... [Twain: Fluffy?!!...]

... Clegg also said Friday that the government would tighten Britain's libel laws, which are so broad and favorable toward plaintiffs that non-Britons, including wealthy corporations and celebrities, have come here just to file suit against other non-Britons. [Twain: Tighten?!! Tight bracelets are out of fashion & impede circulation.]

"It is a farce — and an international embarrassment — that the American Congress has felt it necessary to legislate to protect their citizens from our libel laws," Clegg said. [Twain: Probably mixed this in for whitewash.]

[Twain: Fluffy! Oh dear. Clara and Jean! Come quick!]

Clegg is a Zio puppet

Recognise it for what it is. This is a classic example of controlling dissent.

He can ~#%^ off for all I care along with his fellow "clan" members David Cameron and the controlled opposition the Miliband Brothers.

You'll never be free if you cant recognise the matrix.

lol

Political grandstanding imo.

We shall see.

He is unworthy of his hire thus far.

Joη's picture

what a confidence-inspiring picture!

gosh...

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

Will believe it when I see it.

Meantime, politicians are highly suspect and there are very few to be trusted. Let's hope this is real and they're not lying to our faces yet again.

What are you fightin' for?
Caught in the middle?
Freedom is only for those with the guts to defend it!
