List of Vampire Thanksgiving Checkpoints In TN!

TN Govt To Setup Blood Checkpoints On Thanksgiving Weekend

You will be asked for "Papers, and blood sample, please"

The TN Department of Homeland Security, in conjunction with the TN Highway Patrol, will be setting up "no-refusal" checkpoints throughout Tennessee this weekend. If you are stopped at one of these checkpoints you will be asked for your papers, and likely administered a sobriety test which could include a forced blood sample!!! If you think you have nothing to worry about, keep in mind that TN DUI Officers have in the past have been warned to arrest more people "or else" which means they have every incentive to meet their quota. Once your blood and DNA is forcibly extracted from you it gets stored in a government database.

Here is a news article which gives more information -

Ramsey Admits His Ignorance On The Constitution Regarding Individual Rights (Forced Blood Extraction Laws)

When asked, Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey admitted his ignorance about the Constitution(s) and doesn't even pretend to try to know the law as it relates to individual rights, personal privacy, etc.

This was in regards to the new TN law that allows the cops to FORCE you to give a blood sample.

One has to wonder if any of this blood goes into the DNA database that Ramsey wanted? More specifically, does Rep Diane Black's medical testing company get the contract for this?

Here is the video -

"The accused shall not be compelled to give evidence against himself. " - Art I, Sec 9 - TN Constitution

"No person shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself" - 5th Amendment - US Constitution

TN Cops Can Now FORCE A Blood Sample Without Your Consent!

 

A new bill passed by the TN legislature allows law enforcement to FORCE you to give a blood sample upon request without your consent!

The bill summary states:

"As enacted, permits an officer to test the blood alcohol content of certain drivers regardless of whether they consent"

This bill was passed unanimously by the TN Legislature! Here are the listings of House Votes and the Senate Votes on the bill. Over the Independence Day Weekend (ironically) the government forced 8 people to submit their blood to government databases.

The full text of the legislation and the summary can be read on the TN Legislative website. Admittedly, this bill didn't even make the List Of Worst Bills In TN Of 2012.

Given the amount of influence that Congressman Diane Black has over the Tennessee Republicans, one has to wonder if her husband's medical testing company, Aegis Sciences, stands to benefit from this new law? Learn more about that possible angle here and here.

Is Lt. Gov Ron Ramsey Corrupt With Congresswoman Diane Black? (DNA Bill)

An interesting development...

Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey's recent bill to forcefully steal DNA from innocent individuals was introduced into the TN Legislature a few weeks ago. Of course this bill has serious Constitutional issues, but that aside, following the money trail causes one to ask if the Lt. Governor is being corrupted by Congresswoman Diane Black and her husband's successful medical testing company?

Here are the FACTS easily laid out (but don't take our word for it, do your own research):

1-Lt Governor Ron Ramsey introduced a bill to steal DNA by force from innocent individuals and then store the DNA records in a government database : http://wapp.capitol.tn.gov/apps/BillInfo/Default.aspx?BillNumber=SB0257&ga=107

2-Congresswoman Diane Black's husband, David Black, owns Aegis labs which is a very lucrative, entrenched, and politically connected corporation (it employs Bill Frist): http://www.aegislabs.com/About_Aegis

3-Aegis labs specializes in forensics and law enforcement crime lab testing, etc holding multiple government contracts. Congresswoman Diane Black's husband's company could potentially stand to vastly increase their revenue at the expense of taxpayers if this bill passes: http://politics.nashvillepost.com/?s=aegis

4-Congresswoman Diane Black's husband, David Black, has given thousands of $$ to Lt Governor Ron Ramsey's campaigns: http://www.state.tn.us/tref/

Hmmm.... Do you think there could possibly be a connection here?

Besides Lt Governor Ron Ramsey's blatant disregard for the Constitution's prohibition on unreasonable search and seizure, despite Lt Governor Ron Ramsey's sidestepping of serious questions about the bill, despite Lt Governor Ron Ramsey's inability to explain the necessity and Constitutionality of this bill, one has to wonder if Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey has introduced this bill at the direction of one of his major donating families, Diane and David Black?

Furthermore, other questions about this DNA-grabbing bill linger --
Was there any quid-pro-quo?
Is Lt Governor Ron Ramsey the puppet of Congresswoman Diane Black and her husband's mega corporation?
Did the Lt Governor take a "legal" bribe?
How much money would Congresswoman Diane Black and her husband potentially profit from the passage of this bill?
Is Lt Governor Ron Ramsey simply paying back Aegis and the Black family for generous campaign contributions by introducing this bill?
Have any ethics violations transpired by either Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey or Congresswoman Diane Black?

If this issue concerns you, then you should call the Lt Governor and ask him these questions yourself!
And while you have him on the phone you should tell him to yank the big-government statist Obama-like DNA bill he has introduced (SB257).

DNA bill scandal possibly uncovered in TN?

Opposition against Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey's DNA bill is growing by leaps and bounds!

A piece on TN Post Politics was JUST posted about it:
http://politics.nashvillepost.com/2011/03/01/examining-your-dna-rights
(please visit the link above and leave your comments -- you can do so anonymously if you should choose)

Recently uncovered, Congresswoman Diane Black's husband's company, Aegis medical testing, is on the state dole. In recent times Aegis received well in excess of $630,000 from the State of Tennessee for "services rendered". Their company Aegis also received over $61,000 from the government in the forms of "grants and subsidies". Must be nice to have built-in business with the government?
SOURCE: http://tn.gov/opengov/vendors/vpfy/index.html

The profits that were pocketed by David Black from Aegis medical testing were then used to fund Lt. Ron Ramsey's campaigns.
SOURCE: http://www.state.tn.us/tref/

It's quite possible that if Ron Ramsey's DNA bill passes, Congresswoman Diane Black and her husband could potentially stand to vastly increase their revenue from the government by getting even more lucrative government contracts for Aegis testing. One political observer called this the "worst bill of the year" not only due to the potential corruption, but due to the absolute violation of individual rights as guaranteed by the TN and US Constitutions. Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey is trying to forcefully steal DNA from those who are innocent.

You should call and e-mail Lt Governor Ron Ramsey and ask him to specifically name, other than government agencies, who has been lobbying for the passage of this bill? He has sidestepped this question in the past.

Lt. Gov Ron Ramsey + Obama working together!!!

Why is Republican Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey working to bring President Obama's big-government policies to Tennessee?

Ramsey works for Obama?

=
 
Obama

Why is Republican Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey working to bring President Obama's big-government policies to Tennessee?

You won't believe it, Ron Ramsey continues to disappoint conservatives...

President Obama has a statist plan for a national DNA database, and Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey is working on implementing Obama's plan!

That's right, Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey is working to bring Obama's national DNA database to TN by sponsoring SB0257, a bill which would require DNA to be forcefully taken from innocent people (maybe even you)!

In an interview a year ago President Obama outlines his plan for an Orwellian style nationwide DNA database. You can listen to President Obama's own voice describing the scheme here:  http://tncampaignforliberty.org/misc/Obama-on-DNA.mp3

Why is Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey siding with the liberal authoritarian President Obama in stealing DNA from innocent people?

Here is a good synopsis of the interview of President Obama's DNA database plan:
http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2010/03/obama-supports-dna-sampling-upon-arrest/

If you are wondering why a national DNA database is a bad idea, watch this brief news clip:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCa9-AmfLi8

And in case you didn't catch it, Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey was caught lying about the plan for a DNA database in TN in a recent Phil Valentine interview:
http://www.facebook.com/#!/notes/keep-your-hands-off-my-dna/lt-gov-ron-ramsey-caught-in-a-lie-about-his-dna-bill/137530932981628

CONTACT Lt. GOVERNOR RON RAMSEY AND TELL HIM TO QUIT HELPING OBAMA AND TELL HIM TO PULL HIS DNA-GRABBING BILL SB0257!!!

Keep up the pressure, it's the only way to ensure this bill gets killed. If you've emailed or called before, then call and e-mail again. Continue to do it until he caves in.

Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey has just been caught lying in a radio interview!

 

Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey has just been caught lying in a radio interview!

In an interview last week, with Nashville talk show host Phil Valentine on 99.7 WTN, referring to his DNA-grabbing bill the Lt. Governor said:
"you have to be convicted, you have to be charged, you have to have probable cause on these crimes before your DNA is taken and run... to see if you are guilty"

RON RAMSEY JUST TOLD A BALD FACED LIE!!!

How so?

Present law requires that a biological specimen taken for the purpose of DNA analysis be taken by the arresting authority from any person who is arrested for the commission of a violent felony [prior to conviction]... Under [Ron Ramsey's new] bill, if a person is arrested on or after January 1, 2012, and charged with the commission of [any] felony, the person must have a biological specimen taken for the purpose of DNA analysis [prior to conviction]. SOURCE: Legislative summary for Ron Ramsey's DNA-grabbing bill: http://wapp.capitol.tn.gov/apps/billinfo/BillSummaryArchive.aspx?BillNumber=SB0257&ga=107

So no, you don't have to be convicted before the government can steal your DNA contrary to what Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey said.

BUT WAIT --  THERE IS MORE

Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey also tells a second lie in the same interview!

He continues to say that:
"when I passed the bill three years ago [to take DNA of only those arrested for violent felonies].... this [new bill] is exactly the same bill that we passed, except this does expand it to a few more felonies than what we had, that's all it does."

THIS TIME RON RAMSEY TELLS A 'LIE OF OMISSION'!!!

How so?

This new bill that Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey has introduced expands the power of the government to steal your DNA for all felony arrests, not just "a few" as he attempted to lie about. He is trying to pass this off as only requiring DNA from "a few" felony arrests even though his new bill would require the government to take DNA from "all" felony arrests.

But don't take our word for it, listen with your own ears to Lt Governor Ron Ramsey lie in his own voice:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFgRDbN0tpQ

We don't trust the politicians and their government to tell us the truth because most of the time they don't. Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey is a perfect example of someone who tried to pass themselves off as "conservative" or "a Tea Partier" but in reality he is just as bad as the lying big-government Democrats he claims to oppose. To be fair though, maybe it's possible the Lt. Governor wasn't lying to Phil Valentine and the rest of Tennessee but he simply was ignorant of the facts? Maybe it could be that he is so uninformed and incompetent that he doesn't understand the process enough to be able to accurately explain it to others? Maybe he doesn't really know what's in his own bill that he submitted? Or maybe he's just a liar. In either case, Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey is a dangerous and untrustworthy man!

If you don't like being lied to...
If you think your elected officials should be more upstanding than Ron Ramsey...
If you don't want the government to steal DNA from innocent people (possibly even your DNA)...
If you want to hold your elected officials accountable to their words and actions...

THEN CONTACT Lt. GOVERNOR RON RAMSEY, SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS, AND TELL HIM TO PULL HIS DNA-GRABBING BILL SB0257!!!
