Obama collecting personal data for a secret race databaseThe objective is obvious: Marxist equality of outcome. A recent example: The financial crisis of 2008 was caused in large part by the government decreed granting of mortgages to "disadvantaged" people who couldn't afford them, and who walked away from them when they couldn't or wouldn't make their payments. The defaults, as would be expected under "common sense" and standard lending practice, were huge. That huge loss was coupled into the financial marketeering of bundled mortgages which lost huge values as the "disadvantaged" defaulted. The loss was paid for by the government, to the financial sector, and paid for by the taxpayer, and probably by the consumer who incurred inflation due to money cranked out in the secrecy of the FED. The outcome was that the serfs paid the cronies for the stupidity of the government and its misguided, marxist overreach, while the "disadvantaged" still don't own homes, and their credit is worse than ever due to their default so they probably never will.
"A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.”
Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.
This Orwellian-style stockpile of statistics includes a vast and permanent network of discrimination databases, which Obama already is using to make “disparate impact” cases against: banks that don’t make enough prime loans to minorities; schools that suspend too many blacks; cities that don’t offer enough Section 8 and other low-income housing for minorities; and employers who turn down African-Americans for jobs due to criminal backgrounds."
This is the standard and expected consequence of government-engineered "equality of outcome" a la Marxist principles.
Marxism always works. It works FOR the current tyrant and his cronies; it always works AGAINST the tyrant's serfs, who cannot control the tyrant. Assaults by Leftist activists are now guaranteed on institutions of all types, from banks to cities, to hospitals, to employers of all types, and ultimately to everyone who owns or lives in a house. The assaults will be based in the government's violation of the ninth and tenth Amendments to the US Constitution:
The Constitution and the Right to PrivacyThe government is clearly in the business of telling people what to do, outside their constitutional power to do so. When not stopped from overreaching there is no limit to their overreaches. That is the definition of tyranny. This information will definitely be used for Leftist legal assaults on all sorts of individuals and entities, unless it is stopped. And how can it be stopped? The options are fewer every day.
"Whereas the main part of the Constitution spells out the few things that government may do or must do, the ten amendments of the Bill of Rights spell out what government may not do. For example:
The government can't search or seize your property without due process of law,And various other prohibitions on government activity are spelled out.
It can't keep you in jail indefinitely without a trial,
It can't enact laws abridging the freedom of speech or religion, or infringing on the right to keep and bear arms.
The ninth and tenth amendments were included to make absolutely sure there was no misunderstanding about the limited powers the Constitution grants to the federal government.
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.Amendment X:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.Now, where's the right to privacy?
It is clearly in those two amendments.
The government has no power to tell people what to do except in areas specifically authorized in the Constitution. "
American Declaration of Independence:
"-That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends [natural rights] it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundations on such principles and organizing its powers in suh form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
