    Very direct and professional. Hopefully they listen.

  2. Cannabis says:

    Keep up the great work, Pete!

  3. Steve says:

    Excellent! It could not have been said any better. I can’t wait to hear what the response is.

    This is a rubber meets the road issue. Well done Pete, and a big thanks for recognizing how important this is. The authorities absolutely are using propaganda like this to push their police state.

    Out for blood? – Chicago Tribune

    Over the past couple of years, Kane County State’s Attorney John Barsanti has staged what he calls “no refusal” weekends.

    Drivers suspected of being intoxicated are arrested and told they must provide a breath or blood sample. A judge is on hand to issue a search warrant. If the driver refuses, he faces the threat of being shipped to the hospital to have his blood taken involuntarily.

    Now Rep. Keith Farnham, D-Elgin, is trying to insert some fangs. He has introduced a bill that authorizes police to use “all necessary and reasonable force” to execute a search warrant, whether for driving under the influence of alcohol or anything else. That means suspects could be restrained at a hospital so a nurse or doctor could draw blood or a hair sample.

    Illinois Democrats proposing legislation to take and use blood and hair samples by all necessary force to determine if someone was impaired while driving through a police checkpoint.

    Pete deserves some kind of award for challenging them on this.

    Stick it to ’em.

  6. John says:

    Thank you Pete.

  7. claygooding says:

    They have his “speech” at the ONDCP web site. It is propaganda and a rally cry for law enforcement and prohibs.

  8. Pete says:

    Um, Clay… Where do you think I got the smoking gun that led me to file a petition for correction? From reading the Christian Science Monitor, which led me to the ONDCP site. That is the document on the ONDCP site that is referenced in my petition.

    It’s the one where he specifically, in an officially disseminated document on a government website, said the words “under the influence” when referring to the NHTSA report.

    There is nothing really new in the ONDCP document. The Christian Science Monitor is doing what it always does. The key thing is that there was a clear misstatement of fact, which calls for a specific correction, something we can actually attempt to do through the Information Quality Act.

  9. Pete says:

    Thanks, David — and everyone else.

  10. claygooding says:

    Sorry,I thought you were petitioning on the speech and info he used in the Vienna meeting.

  11. claygooding says:

    And there was so mush skewed data at the ONDCP website,it would require approximately 10 petitions to clear them all up.

    They hate us for our freedom.
    Same shit announced in Canada yesterday.
    Probable cause out the window.
    I recommend selling your expensive rides and driving a beater. Impoundment? Keep the fuk’n thing.

    I’ll look for the Jamaican fishermen study where fishermen that smoked a hog leg caught way more fish than the sober fisherman. Drugs are bad…mmmmkay.

    Pete, you friggin ROCK! Rock on…

  16. claygooding says:

    Hey Pete,chew on this and tell me what you think.

    Is Phillips a subsidiary of Motorola?
    First,they convince congress of the “problem”,or cut them in for part of the profits,to get the money to buy the expensive new technology from a company that an ex-DEA administrator works at. It will be a huge budgeting tool in order too proliferate all law enforcement with the equipment,and with it they can mine even more money from marijuana users.

  17. claygooding says:

    PS. I am moving too another country as soon as I sell my Harley and motorhome and can get enough cash together to get away from these greedy bastards.

  18. claygooding says:

    Too many warlords and opium czars,some of Kerli’s best buddies. I wish I could afford and be accepted by Holland
    or Spain. I wonder if I could get witness protection by running this down to the FBI? But then,they are on ONDCP’s payout list also. We really are a “free” country,and we can’t afford to live here.

  19. Be sure to take a screenshot or make sure the site is stored in one of the web archives. If we have learned one thing from the Transform experience recently it is that governments and UN-level orgs can be sneaky and just self-censor their websites.
